of the darkest dye, which shows the estimation
in which he is held by fl large majority of his
own. party, An artist from the infernal re
gions is not I,ltely to paint the Devil blacker
than he is, and we may fairly infer that it is a
correct likmess es far 'as it goes, and that the
history of the balance of his Misdeeds, which
the writer says he has "scarcely yet opener',"'
would exhibit this .reckless •aspirant for Jim,
Gubernatorial honors (and pet haps DeW•shoddy

"We have l already suggested that we would
regard the re-nomination of Governor Curtin

poiverful to override the unfavorable opinions •

GENER✓IL BLITNT , S SITUATION.
From the Et. Louie Democrat, August 13
Our advices from General Blilnt and his ar
my are net of the most encouraging character.
At last accounts they were unquestionably in
a situation of peril, and but for our confidence
in the commander, we should regard their case
as desperate. As it stands, it is moree• than
probable a battle before this has been fougiat,
and owing to the great disparity' of numbers,
we should not be surprised to learn of a defeat
to the Union alms.
On the 6th of August, Captains. Grealish and
Cobb, of the 4thregiment, Indian brigade, ar
rived at Fort. Scott, Kansas,from Fort Blunt,
(formerly Gibson.) They eft that post, with
out escort, on Sunday evening, the 2d inst.,
bringing despatches from General Blunt,. The.
courage of these officers is worthy of praise.
Their ride of one hundred and eighty miles
was through 'a country traversed by Living
and other Rebel guerilla gang': They
made Fort Scott, in a, --littler over four, days,
averaging ; forty-five miles each day,,
When gley left Fort Mint - , the Piisition of
affair's' was both exciting'and. alarming. •The
ltebela had returned to their, old battle4grounci.
at Honey Springs, where the remains ofCepip
-405 force, about 4,000 in number,.bad heen
reinforced by Generals Steele and*Cabell fl'om
'Fort Sthith, with 4,000 men, and General ltai
'l4y, with five Texas reginients trona' the :Rod
river, valley, about 3,000 men, in all 11,09,
,with , lo guns. General Steele is in command.
Generaißlunt, to meet this Ihrce,ba.s about
2,500 reliable and' effective men,. -He. sent a
messenger some days ago to Eort Scott, cotto
'terinanding the march of . a
started of the 81st ult.,:and ordering the' es
cort, consisting of four companies of the 6th
Kansas cavalry, , and six of the • 13th Kansas
infantry, in all 809 Pen and two /ORS, to move
to Fort, Blunt by forced march. They were
met, by Captains Grealish and - Cobb on the
Grand a iver;l2o miles below, and Would probe
-bly reach Gibson by tl46Bth inst.
General Blunt's information from the ene
my's camp assures him of the disaffeetitha of
the Creek Indianq, whom he - confidently ex
pected to desert to out.' side should he attack.
It would' also appear:dint .Bailey's ,brigade of
Texans is mostly composed of , late c,onscripts,
' a majority being Union men. .On. reyieiv of
.the whole field, it appears thaf'General BlUnt
had deteimined to attack the Rebels soon after
the. arrival' of Colonel Bowen,l3th F,Zansas.
The attack has, in all probability,, been made
before:this. It was his intention to cross the
river, and give thein battle.
Go:clonal Blunt and 'his troops, intelior in
iiiitilihers as they were; .were ,- y6t .confident of
mletory. The odds were•great, but let us trust

matter are,we are unable. to say, but if General ,

cause, shall have permitted the 'gallant little

the following reasons: "' - 3 • ,

moment. If he remains at Foregibson he
' - will soon be - surrounded by the ReVels, cutoff f
I . from supplies, be compelled to cut his way mit,
, or surrenderliknominiously.. If he. falls hack
now it will be discovered, and,soon the foe will .
be pressing . OH him, outflanking-.and attacking
his rear. If he abandons the fortifications at .
Port Blunt it will taste"ten 'thousand 'to dis
lodge or cut off the Rebels. when they obtain
possession., Is not the chance of a successful
attack (uncertain as it is) better , than either
other horn of the dilemma? We hope for
victory, believing in the tried soldierly.quali
tfes of Gen, Blunt and his. men. We look
anxiously for news." -
A GROSS OUTRAGE.
On Thursday evening last An infamous
outrage upon the constitutional rights of a por
tion of our fellosv citizens was perpetrated, at
the Democratic Central club room. 'it appears
that Mr. Scheedler 2 of l3erks county, addressed
the meeting on that occasion, and after he had
finished and the Club was about adjourning, an
armed force consisting of ten or twelve men
belonging to the Invalid Corps, so-called, Who
have been stationed in our city fOr the last few
weeks, appeared at tbe door and at the foot of
the stairs, where, with fixed bayonets and
loaded, muskets, they attempted to prevent any
egress from the building unless, as a prelimin
ary, the speaker of the evening wasstirren
dered to them as a prisoner. It is seemly nor
- cessary to say that the; insolent demand was
not complied with,and the crowd of Democrats
increasing every moment, the military (who
refused to show any authority for' theirinter
ference and attempted arrests, when requested
to do so,) thou ..ht discretion the better part
of valor and retired to their headquartera.
