NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
Abraha . in Lincoln,
FOR VICE PRESPENT.
The ChfoniO Convention.
The diricordant cliques of what was once
a great political party, met in conclave
to-day in Chicago. Goodoisen :all over the
land, have! long suspected tbafrthis meeting
was designed still further to distract the
nation and afford aid and comfort to its ene
mies. Timb alone ..can, establish or dispel
these suspicions. At this time, it is hard to
tell who will be selected for sacrifice at the
ballot-box in November next. The latest
suggestion we have heard relative to -the
ohoice of a Presidential ticket', by' the Chicago
Convention, is to the effect that the first bal
lots will be close between the cliques already
operating for-prominent candidates, and that
then finding it impossible 'to choose, they
will unite, is in'the case of Polk and Pierce,
on some new man. In that case Don Carlos
Buell is tiipoken'of with Seymour of Connect::
lout, as the next on the ticket. The latter 'is
a radical peace man, and we di TA knov

to grant their discharge •from service and. al

there are at least fifty thousiind deserters
from our army. Supposing one-hall; or even
one-third, should furnish substitutes, would
it not place a heavy corps directly in the

Letter from General Seymour,
Lately a Prisoner of War.
Nxw Yonn, Friday, August 19, 1864.
To the Editor of the New York Times :
I have just received the following most in
teresting letter from Gen. Seymour, lately re
leased from " under fire" at Charleston. As
an old West Point Officer, with General An
derson at Sumter, .and iitatiotted many years
in the South; he knows the t3outhern people
well. Be isal4braioa, tsue soldier, devofed to
the Uniqii ,and, p[ at the time of the
unfortunate ttlit/11 Florida, ie was accused'
of lufewarmness - brthose ignorant of his
character, •he has proved, by his action on:
many a battle-field, as well as by his plucky
talk to the rebels at Gordonsville, when cap
tured in May last, that he was every inch loyal
to the old flag. Yours, &c.,
W. E. D. ' 'Jr.
• WlLlzusts.rowN, leisss., Aug. 15, 1864.
My Dear Sirt:—You ask for my impression:
'of the present Condition of the Southern Con
federacy, and you shall have them. For the
benefit of our cause I wish they might be im
pressed upon every soul in the land, that the
confidence begotten of my three - months'
observations in the interior of the South
might be shared by every man who has the
least connection with the responsibilities of
this struggle. And lam sure that these
opinions are not peouliar to myself. Every
one of the fifty officers just exchanged will ex
press the same—every one of them, whether
from the jails of Charleston, or the pens of
Macon and AnderSonpllo.• will oo)ilidently
tell the same story.
The rebel cause is fast failing from exhaus
tion. Their two grand armies have been re
inforced this summer from the last resources
of the South. From every corner of the land,
every. old man and every,boy capable of bear
ing a rifle has been impressed, willingly or un
willingly, and hurried the front. Lee's
army was the: first so strengthened : It was at
the expense of Hood's. " Governor Brown told
the truth with a plainness that was very bit
ter, but, it, ,the; leas the truth.. Let
me extract a few prominent . etatements from
his proclamation of July 9, addressed to the
;;Reserved Militia of Georgiaf'•*; •-• • -
"A ]ate correspondence with the President
of the Confederate States, satiefled my mind.
that Georgia is to be left to herawn tb.loutdes
to supply the reinforcements to General John
ston's army, which are a ndispertsablc - ,to•the
;protection of Atlanta, and preient the State
from being overrun by the overwhelming
numbers now-under command of the Federal
General upon our soil. '
'But there is need Of farther reinforce
ments, as will •be seen by the accompanying
letter of General Johnston, * *- And
it becomes My duty to , call forth every man in
'the State able to bear arms, as fast as they can
be armed, to aid in the defenee of our home's,
our altars, and the grave' 1' our ancestors:
"If :the Confederate Governnient will not
send the large cavalry force (now, engaged in
raiding and repelling raids) to destroy the long
line of railroads over which General Sherman
brings his supplies from Nashville, and thus
compel him.to retreat with •the loss of most
of :his army, the people of Georgia, 2oXO haffe
dlready been drawn upon more heavityinpreper
tion tom:Motion than those of any other gtate
Os the Confederacy, must at-all hazarcli, and iit
any sacrifice, rusla to the front. • •
"If .General Johnston's army is destroyed;
the Gulf States are thrown open-to the enema
and we; are ruined."
There must, indeed, have beelf deeperate

Very few persons are preparing to obey
the late call of the Governor. His summons
will meet with no, response here. The peo
ple are soul-sick, and heartily tired of this
hateful, hopeless strife. They would end it

we new need is men--only men—not substitutes
or hirelings who go forth for any motive but
'the country's good, and produce but little be
yond depreciating oAr armies—but men--
such as really constittlile the State, and boast
of being freemen and the sons of freemen. If
these fail to support their country's cause in
her hour of peril, they are unworthy of con
tinuing freemen, and should blush ever to ex
ercise a freeman's privileges
But if bounties must be paid, let it be in
Southern land, not in Northern gold ; and
armies of emigrants, whose sons may aspire
to'even the rule of the nation, will cross the
seas to win the broad acres that disloyalty has
forfeited to the State.
To every intelligent soldier who has fought
through all these indecisive campaigns on al
most numberless indecisive fields, the ques
tion constantly arises, with toucbThg force,
why we do not,overwhelm our enemies?
Tens of thousands of lives are lost because

us in blood and treasure; of a prolonged war,

which she could never xise.
What folly, then, - to struggle on in thie way,
when we can send fo the field five times the
force already there. What weakness to think
we cannot conquer the South. Behind the
James only boys and old men are to be Been,
while here men buy and sell as in the olden
days of quiet, and regiments of able-bodied

Our total loss in the fight of .Thursday will
not, it is said, exceed 2000, while that of the
enemy is supposed to be about 5,000. We
still hold about four miles of the Weldon rail
road and the portion abandoned by the 211
corps was effectually destroyed. •
Deserters who came in yesterday say that
Gen. A. P. Hill's corps, two divisions of
Longstreet's corps, and the Jeff Davis Legion,
were the rebel troops engaged on Thursday.
They also state that since the Weldon rail
road fell into our, possession pork has ad

A letter received from the Army of the Po
