The evperhead National Convention did
not astonish the country with the unconcealed
treason sympathy of the resolutions adopted
as their platform, nor will the word be
amazed at the candidate pneforth., Far the
Democratic leaders to do sensible act=—for
e.opperheadiaa,ranic, blatantidongh-faceiim to
show a stern front* favor Of: 't4audication of

copperhead Ohidage Ocinvontfon were - adopted
as much because . ..they. were *- . .81,1H. String of
vague generalities: -as becatnnio•:7 4 Uotild be
used to delude the ignO4toultsseN'of the
North, and serve to •intiS4'llie, iii nsity of
treason in the South. And in control of
the same motive, the man NOlellan was nomi
nated. His merit with copperhead Democ
racy is, that he quarrelled with and sought the
embarrassment of the National authorities—
that he obtruded his political predilections as
an obstacle to the performance of his sworn
military duties—and that he is the open, un
qualified friend of the South. cer
tainly was not nominated because, he had
achieved military fame. He does not possess
the prestige of a great leader, and therefore
he was not nominated for any tacit in that re
spect. He is no statesman, and hence the
Democracy did not make him their candidate
because he might be influential in restoring
the land to peace with a dash of his pen.. The
simple truth is, that M'Olellan was nominated
just as the platform was adopted--for his
hatred of the Administration, for his sympa
thies with the slave States, and for his unal
terable attachments to slavery. NO doubt he
will rally to his standard, every man convicted
of a wrong against the Government. He will
have supporters in the Generals Porter and
WOall; warm friends in the Hammonds—bla
tant advocates in every exposed or punished
traitor in the free. States—but that any con
eidertible number of intelligent or brave men
will vote for him, we cannot and will not be-
Bove until the fact is established at the polls.
It needs only the election of George B.
Olen= to establish the principle of -States'
rights, which of itself would be an eternal bar
rier to the re-construction of which the DC
mooracy so much boast. But his election to
the Presidency would establish other heresies.
It would secure the sanctity of slavery, the
independence'of the confederacy, and the per
petual antagonism of the States North and
South. After the blood and treasure which
have been expended in defending the Govern
ment and the Union, it is not likely that the
American people will accept a candidate for
the Presidency who is known to be the friend
of their enemies, and the enemy of their
Failure of the Negro Substitute Scheme
We have been paying some•attention to the
business committed, by the several counties
of this State, to agents who were authorized
to procure substitutes in the revolted States
to fill up the quotas of such counties. The
bbjeet was to induce negroes to 'enlist, by the
offer of large bounties. It appears now,
however, that the entire scheme will prove a
failure, not because the negroes of the South
are unwilling to fight, but because almost
every able-bodied freedman is 'now engaged
in some capacity in connection with the army.
Maj. (len. Shernian's letter in which he dis
countenanced the business, is supposed to
have had some influence in producing tho
failure. He claims that the .llnion armlet
now in the South have a right , to the co-ope
ration of every freedman in rebeidom, besides
the support and companionship of every
white man in the loyal States capable of mili
tary service. This is sound doctrine, and
has had something to do with the failure to
procure negro substitutes in the South, to fill
up quotas on the draft in the North. The
districts failing thus to fill up their quotas
will be compelled to bring out their own
fighting Material, which is the most honora
ble mode of responding.to a call of the Gov
ernment for troops to fill up its armies.

Whenever a sensible rein liears a croaker
talking about stopping the war, to establish
1 3 e4c0, it would be well to put the ques
tions, whether the peace he seeks will restore
the National Union, enforce the law of death
'to traltors, compel obedience to the National
authorities, :put an end to the machil*tii p s
of the slave:holder to destroy free ?As,
force respect to the Federal offic e rs, attkir
ever place it beyond the reach of politicians to
organize another such a rebellion. And he
ight still further .ask whether peace thtia
sought by the dough-face will prove to the
world the ability of the American people to
maintain their Government against all ene
mies—whether the_ National Union will be
secured in all its former strength. These are
questions which every blatant , peace man
will shrink from answering; heause the peace
theyseek has other objects in View. What the
dough-face Democrat means by peace, is to
vindicate'the prowess of the South, and to re
cognize its ability successfully to rebel—to
acknowledge that slaiery_ is more potential
than freedom—to concede that the "mud sills"
of the free States, the Wordy and intelligent
mechanics and laborers of the North, are in
capable of conducting a war with the chivalry
of the South—to assume the war debt, f the
revolted States and to afford the trait= Oresent
facilities for re-organising rebellion in order to
make its success in the fufure , afized fact. The
peace which the dough-face Democrat seeks,
implies everything but the-Vindication of the
national honor, the triumph of the national
arms, the enforcement of the national laws,
the stability of the National Government, or
the safety of the National Union. What is
sought for by the peace men professing De
mocracy, is the safety and the influence of the
institution of slavery—the upholding of the
slave power, and the support of the aristoc
racy which it breeds. What white freeman in
the free States desirei such peace?

The frontier journals come to us filled with

account of a fight with the Indians.:

ten miles. Captain:Murphy returned to Fort

About five hundred Indians led by white men,

The Indians have a provision train and are
mounted on the fleetest horses that travel the
plains, and those in the engagement of Tues
day were all armed , with rifles. The cavalry
could not use their revolvers, • owing to the
long range of fire, and the Indians had guns of
