NATIONAL UNION TICKET.

Which the is Sectional ParlYl
It.' hais alWays been a capital m'y with the
Democratic leaders to charge their opponents
with'sectional6rn.. Because those who did.
not believe that slavery was divine and supe
rior to freedom in its relations to the prosper
ity of the country, they were charged as being
*motional fanatics. Lot us now ace hoW this
charge will bear analysis so far as relates to the
nominations of the two parties in question.

the thraldom of Slavery, were honored' with
distinction is the Union National Convention>
while the Democratic Convention, that boast
ed Convocation of the haters of sectionalism,
those consistent patrioti, have selected both
their candidates from States lying north of
Mason and Di-xon's In view of this, we
conjure Xr..Fillmore, who acts with this sec.:
tional party,. to ri,be:,rae his Albany Speech,
and again call upon the South. to rebel, if this
Chicago ticket which has been made sectional,
by selecting both candidates from the N. ors'!.

and consistency. lint' one consideration

reit against this sectionalism, and that proba
bly will—there is not the remotest chance of
the success of this sectional ticket.
Keep it Itetere the Peepltl
That the Chicago Convention could not find
time or heart IN ANY RESOLUTION OR
SPEECH, TO UTTER ONE WORD
AGAINST THE SOUTHERN REBELLION!
Let our brave soldiers in the field, our
mothers and sisters in homes made desolate
by rebel bullets--by our starving countrymen
in rebel prisons, and our overburthened tax
payers to sustain a war pushed upon the
country by rebellion---reinember that Democ
racy has no rebuke for Treason and Rebellion,
and hence is entitled to the support only of
traitors and rebels. Friends of the Union and
and haters of Rebellion in the Democratic
party--break ranks. and come out from such
a cabal of treason. It 1 . : 1 no place for yon.
THE COPPERHEAD NATIONAL CONVENTION,
after it made its nominations and erected a
platform, instead of adjourning sine die, as is
the custom of all such bodies, adjourned to
meet again when it should be deemed neces
sary by its officers. This action is designed
to work as a covert threat that, if the copper
heads are defeated at the polls in November,
they intend to assemble and organise a re
sistance to the decision of the majority. It
is a repetition of the old game of "brag" so
often played by the same men, and we have a
clear notion that the Cops will have au , op
portunity to test their courage in resisting the
re-inauguration of Abraham Lncoln as Presi
dent of the United States. A blatant copper
head who loves to hear himself talk, declared
the other dty tlwt e• Lieeele ted,
there would nate a Democratic; (fungi ussman
to resume his seat at Pe opening of Congress
in December. Ho was retorted on by a man
p•esent tfaat it wonitl be a blessing to the
country if a Democrat never again was al
lowed to vete or tall: on the. floor of either
branch of Congress.
Tux PiLsoz DElttocracr have a happy way
of their own in seeking to establish their prin
ciples. About the time the Government is
becoming successful in putting a final end
to rebellion, an about the time also, that the
traitors are approaching their ; just doom of
destruction, the peace Democracy are de
teoted in their secret armed movements, to
do what ? Not to oppose the rebellion—not to
assist our armies in conquering the traitor
foes—but to out the throats of .bolitionists
and ii.e undefended-towns as Gho.mbersbnig
was given to the flames of the invaders. Such
are the Peace Democracy. They are ready to
inaugurate war in the loyal States that treason
may become triumphant inthe revolted States,
Snsii. THE Govimain.vr represented by
Abraham Lincoln, or the hierarchy of Jeff.
Davis & Co., survive the result of the election
in "November? From the treasonable demon
strations at Chicago it is now made most clear
what is "the drift" of the Deinocratio party,
and into what abyss its success would precip-.
itate the country. It matters not as to the
nominee, or what the platform laid down, the
proceedings at Chicago demonstrate one thing,
vis: that the election next fall will really be be
tween Lincoln on one side and J. ft. Davie on the
hi , cratra w s s oi nszas.e.socxxvirres.—When
General M'Clellan was made Commander-in.
Chief of the Union armies, the Richmond
papers charged that he had offered his ser
vices to the Southern Confederacy when the
war began, and the General has ne”er denied the
drove. All these circumstances, in connec
tion with the favorable results to the Confed
eracy of his generalship, may account for the
great respect with which to South has al
ways spo)Len of the American Napoleon.

They denounce Mr. Lincoln for the "delay"

They say they are opposed to the draft, and
yet hurrah for the man who has urged a draft
more strongly than anybody else.
They abuse Mr. Lincoln, because, as Presi

and at the same time say they will vote for a
man as Mr. Lincoln's successor, who helped
to prosecute the war, under Mr. Lincoln as a
The say they are opposed to the war, and

to-day, who, while pretending to venerate his
name and to respect his principles, are now
demanding that the Government of the United

The rebel pickets refuse to believe that At

friendly, approaching close to our lines with
passes from their officers, for the purpose of
trading, (apparently,) but all having Jeff
Davis' proolamation of foreign protection and

They purchase all the edibles they can get

Rebel Support to Gen. M9Clella
WASEUNGTON, Sept. 6.—The Richmond Sen
tinel of Saturday says, a heavy battle is re
ported to have been begun at Atlanta on the
evening of Wednesday and resumed on Thurs
Gen. Hardee,with S. D. Lee and Ooleburne,
is said to have begun the fight , end gained
some advantage at first, but subsequently lost
it. Generals Patten, Anden.on . and Cum
mings are reported to have been wounded.
Official advices from Gen. Forrest to the Ist
inst., have 'been received. lie reports the
enemy to have evacuated the Memphis and
Charleston railroad up to Memphis, and that
the Yankee troops are moving up the Missis
sippi river en route to Virginia and Missouri.
Governor Vance, of North Carolina, has is
sued a proclamation, offering a free pardon
to the many deserters who are lurking in the
woods and mountains, threatening the ex
treme penalties of the law to those caught, as
well as against their alders and abettors.
-They are to be hunted town like galley felons.
The Sentinel, of Saturday, commenting on.
the Chicago nomination, says : Of the can
didates, McClellan, who was formerly a de
cided war man, is represented to have greatly
modified, if not, indeed, abandoned, his bel
ligerent sentiments. The support given him
by the many decided peace men, lends strong
`confirmation to the report, and nothing
Would be easier than for McClellan to -recon
cile a declaration for peace in the present
state of the question, due, as one may sup
pose, to Lincoln's management of the war.
• Of Mr. Pandleton's position there is no un
certainty. He is an ardent peace man. The
fact that such a man was nominated is a
strong proof that M'Clellan's position cannot
be widely variant. The contest which now
commences will be brief, but it will be violent.
Two months will clear it, and will decide
which shall rule, Lincoln or M'Clellan. Per-
haps there are no two public men in the
United States separated by a greater animos
ity than exists between Lincoln and
lan and their respective partizans. There is
robably no one by whom Lincoln would not
prefer to be beaten. This will add to the ri

THE Secretary of the Treasury gives notice
that subscriptions will be received for Cou
pon Treasnry Notes, payable three years from
August 15th, 1864, with semi-annual interest
at the rate of seven and three-tenths per cent.
per annum—principal and interest both to be
paid in lawful money.
These notes will be convertible at the option
of the holder at maturity into six per cent.
gold bearing , bonds, pa,yable not less than five
nor more than twenty years from their date,
as the Government may elect. They will be
iasued in denominations of $5O, $lOO, $5OO,
$l,OOO and $5,000, and all subscriptions must
be for fifty dollars or some multiple of fifty
The notes will be transmitted to the owners
free of transportation charges as soon after
the receipt of, the original Certificates of De
posit as they eau be prepared.
As the notes draw interest from August 15,
persons making deposits subsequent to that
date must pay the interest accrued from date
of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dol
lars and upwards for these notes at any one
time will be allowed a commission of one
quarter of one per cent., which will be paid
by the Treasury Department upon the receipt
of a bill for the amount, certified to by the
officer with whom the deposit was made. No
deductions for commissions must be made
from the deposits.
Special Advantages of this Loan.
IT IS a NATIONAL SAVINGS BANK, offering a
highsx,rate than any other, and b st security.
Any savings bank which pays its depositors
in U. S. Notes, considers that it is paying
in the best circulating medium of the country,
and it cannot pay,in: anything better, for its
own assets are either in government securities
or in notes or bonds payable in government
.I.t is equally convenient as a temporary or
permanent investment. The notes can al
ways be sold for within a fraction of their
face and accumulated interest, and are the
best security with banks as collaterals for dis
Convertibleinto a 6 per Cent. 15-20 Gold Bond.
ri A ,Baditton to the very liberal interest on
the notes for three years, this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per cent..
per annum, for the current rate for 5-20 Bonds
is not less than nine per cent. premium, and be
fore the war the premium on six per cent. U.
S. stocks was over twenty per cent. It will
be seen that the actual profit on this loan, at
the present market rate, is not less than ten
per cent. per annum.
Exemption from State or Municipal
But aside from all the advantages we have
enumerated, a special act of Congress exempts
all bonds and T‘ easury notes from local taxation.
On the average, this exemption is worth about
two per cent. per annum, according to the
rate of taxation in various parts of the country.
It is believed that no securities offer so
great inducements to lenders as those issued
by the Government. In all other forms of
indebtedness, the faith or ability of private
parties, or stock companies, or separate com
munities, only, is pledged for payment, while
the whole property of the country is held to
secure the discharge of all the obligations of
the United States.,
While the Government offers the most
liberal terms for its loans, it believes that the
very strongest appeal will be to the loyalty
and patriotism of the people
