Rev. John Walker Jackson
We have withheld the publication of the
following correspondence until to-day, on ac
count of the press upon our columns by other
matter of immediate importance. It will be
seen that the citizens of Harrisburg, or those
repreSenting its business, professions, and
trades have requested Rev, John Walker
Jackson to deliver an oration on the great
questions now agitating the public .mind—
questions out 'of which issues have sprung in
volving the life of the nation, as well as the
interests of civilization throughout the civil
ized world. We know of no man better qual
ified to prepare such an oration, than the gen
tleman who has been invited to this discus.
sion. His thorough scholarly attain
ments, his earnest and deep feeling for his
bleeding country, his impassioned eloquence
and finished oratory,—all combine to fit him
peculiarly for the task to which he has been
invited, and hence we have just reason to an
ticipate an intellectual treat on Friday even
ing next, such as we have not enjoyed in this
city, for a long time.
We submit the perusal of the correspond
ence between the citizens of Harrisburg and
Rev. Jackson, to the perusal of our readers:

The Battle To-Day:-
At no time in the history of the old Key
stone State have the people been summoned
to a more important contest, than that in
which they are engaged to-day, at the polli.
The battles before Petersburg and Richmond
only differ from the one being ,fought to-day,•
in the fact that our brave brethren in arms
contend with a foe where life must be sacri•
feed for victory, and where blood and suffer
ing mark the progress of the struggle, while
with the voter it is a silent struggle "with the
potent ballot, bloodless, and yet involving the
life, as it were, of every .man in the Common
wealth. Of course, at the hour we pen this par-,
agraph, we can form no mathematical estimate
of the exact result, but that Our ause must
triumph at the ballot-box as signally as it is
now succeeding on the battle-field, we are
just as confident as we are that God overrules
all for His wise purposes, and for man's
immediate benefit. To-daY, in a great meas
ure, the people of Pennsylvania will assist in
deciding the great future of our great coun
try. Before we issue another eveniag editioro
of the TELEamArn, we will know the re
sult of the election to-day.

Why Gen. WOlellazt. was Nominated for
the Preildency—The Fa.plana.tiori of
With a great many good men—men of sober
reflection and . sagacious discernment—the
nomination of George B. M'Clellan for the
highest office in the gift of the American peo
ple, has been an enigma which they could not
solve. The leaders who control the party of
which M'Clellan is the !candidate; have all
alOng, or at least during this war, affected to
despise military heroes--utterly repudiating
those who only had a military repUtation on
which to rest their claims for political recog
nition. In every loyril State in the Union the
effort to extend the right of the electiye fran
chise to the soldier, has been and still is op
posed by the party which George B. M'Clellan
represents as a Presidential candidate. In
every district or county controlled by the
lower order of the men who rally to the
M'Clellan cry, all appropriations for bounties
to volunteers or relief, to the families of sol
diers, have been strenuously opposed and re
fused by the Democratic leaders. The war
itself, s so far as those who represent the Gov
ernment are concerned, has been and still is
opposed with relentless fury by the supporters
of M'Clellan; while the efforts of the rebels
to disrupt the Union and destroy the Govern
ment, is exalted as the warring. struggle of a
brave people to emancipate themselves from
the rule of despots and usurpers. In fact,
every policy connected with the war, the
means of raising men to fill up our armies—
the taxation necessary to support troops—the
sacrifices attending war,—all, all are derided,
denounced and opposed by the leaders of the
Democratic party, and yet these very men
have selected a candidate for the Presidency
who is indebted to the war for the prominence
he now enjoys and the reputation in Which his
supporters now glory. This is the enigma which
puzzles cool, reflecting men. It staggers even
the corrupt politician, who is apprehensive
that there is more danger in such a situation
than mere ordinary men, indulging an ordi
nary opposition to an administration, are wil
ling to run in times when all that they hold
dear as a Government is at stake.
We have heard many theories advanced-.as
an explanation for the negative and contra
dictory position now occupied by the Demo
cratic leaders, the most plausible of which may
be stated as follows : George B. .McClellan's
name is only to be used to secure the election, if
possible, of a majority of electors, in which
event, said majority are t 9 cast their votes for
some other man for the Presidency. The worst
feature of the whole game is, that McClellan
is a party to "the deception, having, it is..al
leged, consented to the fraud on the empty
assurance that he would be placed in coin.
mend of the armies of the Republic. If this
game wins, the choice of the majority of the
Democratic electors is as likely to fall on Jef
ferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, John Slidell,
or John C. Breckinridge s as George W. Wood
ward, Horatio Seymour, Reverdy Johnson,
or any of the other leading rebels or their
sympathizers. Thitreduees the question of
rremaent to alternative that all
who vote for McClellan, or for the electors re
presenting the party that has nominated
McClellan, are really arid practically support
ing some other man, some traitor, who will
thus be placed in a position effectually
to destroy the Union, abolish— the Gov
ernment, and trample all that is left
of freedom beneath his feet. : There
is - something frightful, something ap
palling in such a contingency—but it is very.
Demacratish, if we may be allowed the expres,
sion. The Democratic leaders of- the free
states are sworn to relieve, and support the
slave-holding Democratic traitor leaders of
the slave states. However stupendous such
a fraud as this may appear ht first sight, it
would be regarded as insignificant by the Dem
ocratic leaders of th.e,North, were it possible to,
serve their purposes. We believe in it, as we
believe the Democratic leaders capable of
everything that is Mean, cowardly and traitor
ous. We believe that the men who are, ready
to ignore the: teachings of religion, are also
willing to sacrifice any favorite, if the trans
action secures them the achievement of the
end in view.
This is a grave and serious subject. Many
honest men who have resolved to vote for
M'Clellan as a test of principle, have here a
view of a contingency; involving the most
dangerous consequences. It exhibits the
folly of good men throwing away their votes
on a . candidate who is only the tool of bad
men. •If admonishes all who truly love theit!
country to vote directly for the man represent=
ing its. friends. A vote for Abraham Lincoln
will prevent alike the success of the machina
tions of northern traitor. sympathizers and
southern traitor rebels.
Sheridan% Victory in the Valley
The news from Sheridan of another victory
in the Shenandoah. Valley, will thrill the heart
of every true patriot with joy. It comes at an
opportune moment. The blows of our friends
in the army fall heavily y on the heads of the
rebels in arms, and, we may add, with crOsla
ing 'weight, on the hearts of their sympathi
sers in secret in the North. It appears that
reinforcements sent out from Richraond, to
relieve Early, and if pessible• rescue the
remnant of his forces, were , met by Gens. Tor
bet, Custer" and Merritt, and at -once attacked,
beaten, and, utterly routed. The pursuit was
continued for twenty-six miles, resulting in
the capture of eleven pieces of artillery and a
large number of prisoners. It would' appear
from this ire-we - that Sheridan has not only de
stroyed Early's effective force in the Shenan
doah Valley, but that he is actually gobbling
up or trampling beneath the hoofs of his hor
ses, such troops as are sent out from the rebel
capital to the relief of the marauders who
are thus exterminated in that part of Virginia.

ROCICAWAY.ON-THE SEA, Sept. 11, 1864. —To
Major General George B. McClellan, Orange,
N. J.—Dear sir :—lt is a'mean thing to, listen
at the keyhole. It is meaner to open a private
letter. It is the meanest of all to accept hoi
pitality and abuse the host. But these mesa
things are Christian virtues compared to to
act of accepting the nomination Of a party u
order to destroy it. A platform is the party a
soul. A candidate is the party's body. Sep
arate the body from the soul and death en
sues. It is as difficult to sit between two
stools as to sleep with, one eye open. You
cannot worship God and mammon. Honesty
is not only the best policy, but the only one
for an honest man. To cheat in politics is as
wicked as to cheat in money. You know. the
Peace men controlled the Convention. They
gave you a platform that was neither fish,llesh,
fowl nor mackerel. Yet you insist upon the
mackerel. Hence the Daily News, the Metro
politan Record, Freeman's Journal and Ohio
Crisis fly off from you like hoops from an effer
vescing barrel. Singleton will follow Wood;
Vallandigham will fall in, and in two weeks
Pendleton will decline to be shipwrecked with
the rest. "Come out from under the.bed,"
said the indignant wife to her undecided hus
band. "Not," said he, "so long as I have the,
lirit of a man within me."
Mark my words, General, you will not carry
a single State except New Jersey, and you will
sacrifice seven Democratic members of Con
gress out of ten. Look at Vermont. Maine
will be the same. Indiana will only lead the
ether States by a month.
You will-find it as hard as the Rebels have
to fight such Democratic names as Foot, Far-'
ragnt, Porter and Dupont, on the sea, or
Grant, Meade, Burnside, Sickles, Hancock,
Thomas and Sherman, on the land—all of
whom are against you. The late letters of
Sherman and Grant rattle through the Dem
ocratic ranks like lightning through a goose
berry bush. It only costs two thousand
dollars to get up a McClellan meeting. Young
Ketchum said so. If the explosion of a lim

STBASELMO, Va. Oct. 9, Midnight.
Lieut. Gen. Grant, City Point:
In coming back to this point I was not fol
lowed up until late yesterday, when a large
force Of cavalry appeared in my rear. I then
halted my command to offer battle, by attack
ing-the enemy. I became satisfied that it was
only all the rebel cavalry of the Valley, cora
'mended by Roper, and directed Torbert to at
tack at daylight this morning, and finish this
saviour of the Valley.
The attack was handsomely made. General
Custer, commanding the 3d cavalry division,
Charged on the back road, and Merritt,
commanding the Ist cavalry division, on: the
Strasburg pike. Merritt captured five guns,
and Custea captured six guns, with their cai
sons, battery forge, &c. The two divisions
captured 47 guns, ambulances, &c. Among
the wagons captured are the headquarters
wagons of Roper; Lomax, Wickham, and Col.
The number of prisoners will be about, 300.
The enerdy, after being charged by our cav
alry, were broken, and ran. They were"fol
lowed by our men, on the jump, - twenty-six
miles, through Mount Jackson and across the
north fork of the Shenandoah. :.I.deemed it
best to make this delay of one day here and
settle this new cavalry general. The eleven
pieces captured to-,day make thirty-six pieces
captured in the Shenandoah Valley since the

was new, and never had been fired. The
pieces weremarked " Tredegar Works."
