The abolition State Convention, Today this body of political jockies Will meet at Pittsburg, and in the course of time, (say a day or two,) nominate some party back, a renegade Democrat, like Knox, a blusterer like Coved°, a radical, with some preteneions to intellect and experience, like Ketcham, or, failing is We, they may finally settle upon Gov. Curtin, supposed to be the favorite of the military element, as the most available candi date under the circumstances. If the tone of the _Abolition papers indiostoi the real feeling in the ranks, the Convention is likely to have an interesting time. The Pittsburg Gazelle and Dispatch, aad per haps other papers of that political stamp which we do not receive, are very hitter in their de nonoiations of Gov. Curtin, while some of the Eastern journals of the party respond to their invectives with equal venom. The Lancaster Inquirer, for instance, charac terizes the opposition. to Governor Curtin as a systematist effort "to crush him out of popular favor," a "dirty plot," marked by "contempti ble virulence and bitter malignance"—and charges the Philadelphia Press and the Inquirer with having "partially aided these unscrupu lous scoundrels, by inuendoes, insinuations and vague' charges of corruption. against the Governer." Nor does the inquirer stop here. It grows bailer as it proceeds, and defiantly exclaimn: 16 The people are enthusiast% for Governor Curtin, and no eat of men, who have boon ,ln strnmental in having these characteristically cowardly assaults made dare foist through trickery and rascality, a candidate on the Union party of their own caliber." After thus casting down the gauntlet to the enemies of Governor Curtin, the inquirer calls upon' the "ex-Secretary of War," (Gen. Cam eron,) if be is "determined to make a fight with Governor Curtin, in order to nominate ex-Senator Ketcham," to do it fairly, openly and honestly, and not pereist in "making charges of corruption in office without a single specification or circumstance to corroborate them." "We warn these men," continues the In quirer, "of the folly of their course. Every county in Northern, Eastern , and South-east ern Pennsylvania is for Gov. Curtin, first, last and all the time.' The various county con ventions that have assembled, have all instruct ed their delegates to vote for him. His name has'aconsed an unwonted enthusiasm, and from town and city, from country and Tillage, the cry is loud in his favor." * * * " Gov. Curtin's friends are more anxious and deter mined 'than ever upon his nomination." If this is the feeling generally, the Conven tion cannot fail to be a boioterono one, and we may look for exposures, "When rogues fall out," 4&o. The only capable man whe has been named by the party for the Gubernatorial nom ination, is Senator Penney ; but, being compe tent and therefore not to be made a tool Of, there 'is little chance for him. They want a pliantman— and if Curtin is overalaughed, they will find a weaker and worse man to head their ticket. To ns it is a matter of no consequence on whom the choice shall fall. We can easily beat any man they bring forward, and by an over whelming majority, such as Pennsylvania has never yet given. The Conscription Act. There appears to be a difference of opinion as to the true construction of the 13th section of the Conscription act passed by the last Con gress. Why there should be, will puzzle any plan man who roods it—but, nevertheless, there is. On this subject we have received the follow ing : SELINSGROVE, PA., August 3, 1863 Editors Patriot and Union. There is no doubt in my mind that if, according to Sec tion 1* of the Conscription Rot e the procuring of a substitute will exempt a man for three years, the payment of POO will do the same. But I would like to know the proper version of the law. As published in the Age it reads : "And thereupon such person so furnishing the substitute, or paying the money shall be dis charged from further liability under that draft." As published in the PATRIOT AND UNION it reads : "under the draft." Which is the pro• per version, that or the t Further, "the draft," I understand, includes a period of two years; but does "that draft" mean only ono pardon. lar drawing, or does it mean the same as "the draft," including a period of two years—the limit of the law ? Alm-DitAvv. The reading of the 13th section, as we find it in a pamphlet printed by authority of Con gress, is as follows: "Sec- 18. That any person drafted and noti• fled to appear as aforesaid may, on or before the day fixed for his appearance, furnish an acceptable substitute to take his place in the draft; or he may pay to such person as the Secretary of War may authorize to receive it, such sum, not exneeding three hundred dol lars, as the Secretary of War may determine, for the procuration of such substitute, which sum shall be fixed at a uniform rate.by a gen eral order made at the time of ordering a draft Rm. any State or MI iheretapon such person so furnishing the substitute, or paying the money, shall be discharged from further lia bility under that draft," &c. In our paper,- following the New York paper from which we eopied it, it reads "under the draft," instead of "under that draft." But in either case the literal sense of the law is the same. Any person may furnish a substitute to take his place in the draft—or, he may pay a determined sum, not , exceeding $3OO, "to Mich person as the secretary of War may an• thorize to receive it," * * "and there upon such person so furnishing the substitute, or paying the money, shall be discharged from fur ther liability under that draft," arz. What draft ? Why unquestionably " the draft" before meationed in the section, which is a draft " for three years, or during the war." There is, no distinction, whatever, made in the law betieen the man who furnishes a sub stitute and the man who pays $BOO to the dn. cer designated by the Secretary of War to re ceive it. In the one instance the conscript produces a substitute, in the other he hands over the money to the Government, and with it the Government procures the-substitute. In deed, until recently, it was asserted by those in the confidence of the Administration, that the latter preferred the money to the substitute, inasmuch ae icgave them the chance of pro curing drilled soldiers, whose term of service had expired, in place of mere civilians, such as conscripts usually furnish. Be this as it may, the law is plain : there is no distinction made between the conscript who furnishes a embed tote and the conscript who furnishes the money —both are equally and alike exempt from fur ther draft during the term for which the draft is made—which is " for three years, or during the war." Our correspondent is wrong in his under standing of the law, that it " includes a period I of two years." Section 11 says, (and this section we think has confused our correepondent,) ‘• That all per sons thus enrolled .shall be subject, for two years after the first day of July succeeding the enrollment, to be called into the military ser vice of the United States, and to continue in the service for three years or duritte the war," &c. That is, persons now enrolled, but not drawn in this draft, " shall be subject for two years," &0., "to be called into the military service of the United Staten" for the full term for which the conscripts are now called—that is, "for three years, or during the war." THE CONSTITETIONAI•ITY OF THE DRAFT TO BE TESTED.—A case has been presented in the Supreme Court for the purpose of securing a &tiller' upon the conetitutionallty of the con scription. The case is presented in the form of a bill in equity, praying for a writ of in junction to restrain the provost marshal from proceeding further under the conscription law. All the judges of the Supreme Court are out of the city at the present time, hut in anticipation of a case of thin kind, the judges stated before the left that upon receiving notice of the filing of, a bill, they would return to the city and fix an early day for the. argument before a, fell be nc h.

Journal has an editorial artiole in denunciation of the g‘ peace party" in that State, iiirhich it holds the following significant language: ~W e have had enough of angry discussions in North Carolina—enough of partizanship in all conscience. We deprecate, we avoid both:. we appeal to the people on the merits of the question before us and before them. We wish to be strictly parliamentary in all we say, We. wish to make no attacks upon individuals. We see !movements on foot. We examine and char acterize such movements. We tell our people candidly and•plainly that we know there is an organized movement on foot to control the Congressional elections in all the districts. We say in all sincerity that if this movement means 6 117 tiling it moans reeonstruction—subrais sion. We warn the people at home. We warn the soldiers in camp that such is its nature. such its tendency, such will be its result if successful." • NEWS OF THE DAY. BY TELEGRAPH.

The Japanese government hid paid four 'hundred thousand dollars for the murder of Mr. Rich ardson, but refused to surrender the murder ers, alleging * that they were subjects of the Prince Lotzania, who refused to give them up, and the Japanese government pretended that they were not able to take them forcibly. The British Admiral proposed to proceed to the ptincipality of Lotzania and take the murder er/i, but the Japanese government declined to accede to this, contending that it would be es sentially making war upon Japan. The negotia tions concerning the murderers were still pend ing. The:foreign residents ofJapan were very apprehensive that war was , inevitable. FROM lOWA.

GRANT REPORTED TO HAVE LEFT VICKSBURG, A-C Forcruess ItoNunn, August 3_—Tae Norfolk Virginia of to day contains the following: SAVELLB HILL, August 3.—News has just been received from the cavalry expedition under Col. Spear, which left this puttee some days since. The cavalry and artillery crossed the Chowan river at Wanton, N. C , and pro ceeded to Jackson, 12 miles from Weldon, near the Roanoke river, here the enemy were dis covered in strong force. Our advance made a splendid charge on the rebel advance and drove them back, capturing 70 prisoners. Our loss was 2 killed and 3 wounded. We captured 60 bales of cotton and 100 horses. It has rained incessantly since the expedition started, rendering the roads nearly impassible, and the men have suffered great hardships. Had the weather been fair, much more would have been aecomplished. The return of Col. Spear and his command is hourly expected. • The Richmond Enquirer says that it is con firmed that nearly all of Gen. Grant's army have left Vicksburg, and the Yankees report that they have left for Mobile and Terineeeee. The Charleston Courier of July 28th says: ' , There were about 27 vessels of all classes in- Side of the bar yesterday, including the Iron- sides and six Monitors. A brig which had got ashore was being stripped by the Yankees ". The Richmond Enquirer of August let eays it is reported that a force of Yankee cavalry has appeared at Stafford's store, in Stafford county, 15 miles east of Fredericksburg. General Neal Dow will prweed on a trip to Mobile this morning, escorted by two officers of the Consederate police. We are not in formed of the purpose of swirling him to Mobile, but presume it has etime reference to a violation of the laws by Gen. Neal Dow. Gen. Naglee and staff arrived at Fortress Monroe at 1 o'Clock this afternoon, from York town. STEAMER PACIFIC ASHORE ST. Josue, N. P., August 4 —The steamer Paolfic went ashore near Trepapy yesterday.

LONDON, July 23 —The Times contends that Gen. Lee had suffered Be decisive repulse. Lee's forces, it says, moved from the scene of battle by a road to the left of the Federal posi tion, and the day after, were unmolested, at Emmetshurg, a place so far on this road that they must have been almost, in the rear of the Federal army. Then be had been ten days moving all his trains of wounded and supplies, and no doubt an immense mass of booty, quiet ly towards the Potomac. All accounts agree that be succeeded in passing them over into Virginia unmolested. It may be that he in tended his army should follow, but his move ments show no sign of the confusion insepera- Me from a retreat in the face of a victorious enemy. His troops are described as steadily preparing for another battle, somewhere near tne ground of last year's struggle with lin, and we are informed that none have yet crossed the river ; on the contrary, it is said he has received heavy reinforcementa from Beauregard's army Lee's position is such that his refreat to Virginia, in a case of .a necessity, is secure, unless the Federals can detach a sufficient force to operate on his communications south of the Potemae.

In the battle which appears to be impending, lien Meade is attacking a position which a larger army than his own selected at his own plea sure, and the result of the struggle may be mttremely critical. It may end, like so many others, in a draw battle; but defeat to either will be dangerous, if not ruinous. As to the question ,of peace, the North can only obtain reernits at the cannon's mouth. This is the time, indeed, to discuss peace in the Cabinet. BY THE MAILS. ORDER OF REVOCATION.

THE WAR IN BANS AS-AN UNFORTUNATE MISTAKE. INAVENWOETIT, August B.—Captain Harvey, at Westport, learning that it was the intention of the guerillas to attack a train 'which left Kansas City for Santa Fe the latter part of July, he started in pursuit with one company of Kan sas volunteers.

Captain Collegan drew up his men in line of battle, an:cl ordered a charge. A se vere fight ensued, in which many were killed and wounded before the mistake was discovered. THE INVASION.OF KENTUCKY CINCINNATI, August 3 —Only ten wagons were captured and burned by Scott's rebels at Stamford, Kentucky, instead of sixty, as was reported. A special dispatch from Lexington to the Gazette says ScOtt's raid has concluded.

Naw Yogic, August B.—The steamer Mel ville, from Havana on the 25th, arrived here this afternoon. The fire was still burning in the rand, but its progress was stopped after consuming sixteen warehouses, containing 672 bales of cotton, 63,012 boxes of sugar, and large quantities of other goods, a considerable amount of •which was intended - to run the blockade, and belonged to Englishmen. The loss is estimated at over a, million and a halt dollars. GEN. MORGAN IN THE PENITENTIARY. A dispatch from Columbus, Ohio, 80th ult., says: 16 Morgan was incarcerated this afternoon in the Onio penitentiary. Himself and men were delivered over to Captain Marion by the military authorities, and immediately put through the seine motions as other criminals, having their persons searched4air and beards shaved, bathed and clad in cleats suits. Morgan and Cluke submitted very quietly, but some of the young thieves demurred bitterly, until told they must submit. Morgan had his belt filled with gold, greenbacks, and Confederate notes. One who had before broken his parole refused to strip, when it was instantly done for him. Cluke begged for his moustache, but it was in vain—it was rimmed. They will be compelled to submit to prison discipline, be confined apart from the convicts, and guarded day and night by the military. One or two talked about retaliation, but, the rule against speak ing was instantly enforce& -IA negro convict did .l,he barbering to the chivalry.' . ' • ' WASHINGTON ITEMS. THE LATE CAVALRY BATTLE-ARRIVAL OF WOIIN- DED WASHINGTON, August 3.—Seventy men, be longing to Buford's cavalry have arrived here.

RECAPTURE OF TUE DELEGATES OF THE CHRIS- 31/1/1 COMM/5310N. The delegates of the Christian Commission of this city, with a wagon ' four horse team, stores, etc., were captured by Moseby's cav alry while stopping to feel at Fairfax. A dispatch from Gen. Patrick to George 11. Stuart reports their reeapture and safe arrival at his headquarters. CiNN. GILMORE'S REINFORCEMENTS. The impression prevails here that the rein forcements sent to Gen. Gilmore are only half as large as should have been. It is argued that by only forwarding driblets, the contest will certainly be prolonged and the prize almost within our grasp may be lost. The country imperatively demands that a sufficient number of troops be sent to Charleston to insure the success of the undertaking, and whoever bee erred in this matter should be held strictly ac countable. TIM EXEPEDITION AGAINOT LITTLIS CROW. We learn from the expedition against Little Crow that so far from dispersing his threes he had burned the prairies and concentrated them near Denis Lake, not far from the British line. The United States forces were dragging their weary length along the line of the Missouri river,but Little Crow's incendiarism would stop their further progress. MORE INDIAN:TROUBLES. Judge Wright, of Indiana, who has been out in that region as agent of the Government lo cating the Indians, Camanehes, Arrapahoes, Apaches, &c., estimates their number at from ten to twelve thousand, giving from two to three thousand warriors. These Indians had been visited by the Sioux, - who had urged them to commence hostilities against the whites by atuteking the wagon treitte en the Oanta Fe road along the Arkansas river, and eammitting other. depredationg. Tans far peace bad been preserved, and it was confidently hoped still would. A plan is now in consideration of Gov ernment which will have a decided tendency to stop any further warlike movements on the part of these Indians. r!T=IIT7= ' n7nWrIFTI=VTINIM As a matter of general information, it should be known that persons having selected and en tered upon lands under the Homestead law, under the stipulittion of five years' actual and continued settlement, can, at aay time before the expiration of that period, obtain a patent deed as a certificate title, by paying the price of the land at the minimum price per acre, and making proof of settlement and cultivation as provided by existing laws granting pre-emp tions. Returns just received at the general Land- Office, from St. Peters, Minnesota, and the still more distant regions of Vancouver, Washing ton Territory, show that actual settlements are now in progress under the Homestead law. PRISONERS CAPTURED BY GENERAL GRANT General Grant, in a dispatch by mail, states that his captures of prisonere since April amount to thirty-nine thousand men. He has also taken five thousand head of cattle and five hundred thousand.rounds of cartridges.
