The Illinois Democratic Sta'e Convention
'was in session when the tiding ol Vallan
Hijhim's ret orn were made known. A wild
outburst of cheering and eruhasiasm greet
ed the welcome intelligence. A resolution
waa onanimossl adopted, declaring :
rThat we pledge ourselves to stand by Ohio
In protecting Clement F,. Vallandigharn and
ber citizens under the Constitution at.d the
laws." Ihe Constitution and the laws pro
hibit ir.e exile of an American citizen by
arbitrary power, and the Convention standi,
therefore, pledged to resist the re-enforcement
of the decree ot banishment. But
the same obligation is a part of every Amer
ican's duty to his country. We all are
pledged, by the essence of our citizenship,
to maintain the liberties of the people
against the assault of despotism. How
wise we have been to that paramount doty
-of a free people, th 3 protracted exile of a
champion of the people will attest. For
more than a year he baa waited among
strangers for bis own countrymen to do him
justice , he baa at last returned, not like
Cor.o'anoa, who an arrued uost to retaliate
fepon injustice, bat singly, to vindicate, by
ki presence, the liberties that in his person
have been wronged.
We hope that every Democratic organi
zation throughout the country will echo the
resolution of the Illinois Convention. If
tke Democratic Centra I Committee ol Penn
yrvania have any public virtue any sence
ef wbat'is due to the honor and safety of
Democratic principles they will assemble
immediately to pledge the Democracy of

Akotwr Abolition Outragc On the

made on Tht Elintii Stit$ Register. pub

ol Abolitionists and soldier.- After bating

twelve o'clock at night, fortifying them

mares to reach thai city. It ia true that he
sacrificed more than fifty thousand men in
teaching his present base, when he might
have gone there without the loss of a roan ;
but this is considered of little couseqaence
so long as there is hope of occupying R ch
mond. General Grant adopted this las;
plan from necessity, not -choice, but it pre
sents nevertheless -many advantage. : The
deposition of rhe armies secures his ba.ie
of supplies from attack whether located at
Bermuda Hundred orCi y Point. Petersburg
will be taken, ponsibty, alter a sharp fight ;
the railroad booth to U' eld on will be sever
ed, and a large part of North .Carolina be
comparatively isolated-, from Richmond.
Not only will this tone f communication
te rendered eless to fre Confederates,
but other equally important railroad con
nections may be temporarily destroyed by
the Federal Cava!ry. The army ol General
Lee end the citizens of Richmond are de
pendent upon these railroads and the James
River Canal foraopplies. There is tbe pos
sibility at least of investing and capturing
Orury's Bluff, which was of conrse in no
danger when Grant's army waa aor.ft of the
James. This fort i the only formidable ob
struction in tbe passage of tbe troo-clads,
fnr the sunken boats and other obstructions
in the rivet coeld be easily removed.
Drury'w Bluff is, therefore, the key to the
Rebel Capitol, and wiiti its capture the
Cspi'.o! wbvtd be abandoned. Thus it will
have been observed that the south side
offers peculiar facilities for aggressive ope
rations against tbe confederate capital.
It is claimed on the other hand, by the
Confederate, that the defenses of Rich
mond on the. south side are as strong a
those which have heretofore defied the
power of the Northern arnsy. It is certain
the topography of the country admits of the
construction of precisely tbe same character
of field-works as those in Spottylvania and
along the line o tbe Chickahominy. Be
yond all question General Lee anticipated
Graul's last change of base, for his army
moved from their works toward Richmond
simultaneous with the march of tbe federals
jo the Jamea. That Lee did not assail
their moving columns is accepted by some
as an evidence of the weakness of his for
ces and the consequent inability to hazard
a battle oo'.side of his entrenchments; bat
there are others who believe that the wily
Lee would not interrupt the movement,
which he conceives will resolt in the final
overthrow ol that army. The Federals
moved from Spottsylvania without opposi
tion; but they found Lee in even stronger
position in Hanover. And when they re
tired across the North Anna, thef were not
pursued, and the passage of the Pamunkey
was made without resistance; yet there tbe
Confederates were four.d more strongly
posted than they were bofore. This flank
ing business, of General Grant was then
heralded as a great success, which it subse
quently proved not to be. As each move
ment placed the Federal Army in a worse
situation, of coure it was not Gen. Lee's
policy to check it; so that he ny have
deemed it unwise to oppose the transfer cf
the same army across the James.
- To assume that General Lee was each
time surprised is to qaettion tbe vigilance
and ability of the first of living geoerals.-
His inactivity, which allowed Gen. Grant to
plunge from one predicament to another,
until he reached the Chickahominy, was
masterly and significant. The fact that no
interference was attempted with the Feder
al army to its new line may have a deeper
meaning. The fighting has commenced,
and important results will shortly be devel
Daring Outrage On Thursday night

County Commissioners, returned home
from a trip through '.be western part of tbe

. LATE WAR NEWS.
It seems to be evident that General Lee
started b soor as G-ner.il Grant in the late
movement Irom the Chickahominy. Cor
respondents represent that foT'two or three
days before Grant's march, there were urn
mrsiakable evidences ef tbe diminution of
the Confederate fortes in the Federal front.
The number of tarn res became smaller,
the lines were contracted, and the ptcicet
fir in "was lew frequent. "By advices from
southern sources it is certain now that Lee
know that Grant contemplated a movement.

was the first part of Grant's army which
reached Bermuda Hundred. It arrived and
landed on Tuesday afternoon. At dusk Gen.
Kantz, with tbe cavalry of Bullet's army,
marched oat of Bermuda Hundred, eroded
to the south bank of the Appomat ox, and
took the road towards Petersburg At day
light on Wednesday morning Smith's corps
lollowed. The four corps ol Grant's army
which traversed the Peninsula began id
ctobs the James at Powhatan Point, sixteen
mifes below Bermuda Hnndred.on Tuesday
afternoon. Two corps succeeded in cross
ing by midnight Hancock's was one of
them : the other is not known. Hancock
at once marched towards Petersburg. On
Wednesday the other corps had not yet
come op ; and on Wednesday night some
of the army wis still at Powhatan Point
and had not crossed to the south bank of
the Jame. Gen. Kautz reached the vicini
ty of Petersburg early on Wedi.e-day morn
ing. Gen. Giilmore was relieved from com
mand the same day, and Gen. Butler placed
at the head of his corps. The fleet of com
missary vessels from White House also
reached the month of the Appomattox and
began lauding supplies. - -
On Wednesday morning Kautz and Smith
attacked the Confederate entrenchments in
front of Petersburj. As this town Is on the
south bank of the Appomattox, and of lit
tle military value, the enemy at once began
to retreat across the river. . Hancock joined
Smith on Wednesday afternoon, and at dark
he entrenchments around the town were
abandoned by the Confederate. -Hancock
and Sm'nh entereJ them. The rest of the
army had not come up. Petersburg appears
o have been abandoned on Thursday. Mr
Stanton reports that thirteen cannon and
i. early four thousand prisoners were Cap
lured in the outer entrenchments. The Con
federates confront Grant in a line from the
James, below Fort Darling, across the Neck
to the Appoma tox at Petersburg. All their
troops are there.
A few days gt we stated that the Mis
sissippi was blockaded. This has since
been contradicted on Ihe authority of a re
ported victory of Gen A. J Smith over Gen.
Marmaduke, who cc mntanded the Confed-
erate batteries The troth turns out, how
ever, to be as we first stated it. The Con
federates blockaded the Mississippi about
fifty miles below the mputh of the Arkan
sa. Oen. A. J. Smith was sent to drive
them off. He marched along lha western
side of the Mississippi and met the ene
my's pickets. They retreated before bim
to a stream called Fish Ba)ou. Here they
laid an ambuscade for Smith. He fell into
tbe trap, and only escaped great loses from
a murderous fire by a swiit retreat. He re
turned up the river to the place where he
started from, having loot one hundred and
twenty men, besides a number of prisoners.
Tbe Mississippi blockade is' still maintained
and Admiral Porter has been sent for to try
and break it.
The recent Confederate success.- near
Memphis, over Generals Sturg'u and Grier
6on, was gained by the force under Gener
al Forrest. His official report slates that he
captured one thousand prisoners, twenty
caunon and two hundreJ and fifty wagons.
His loss in killed and woanded was foor
hundred. Sturgia and Grieron have re
turned to Memphis with the remnant of
their troops. Fears are entertained lor the
salety of the city. Gen. Forrest will not
attack It, however. Having no Federal lor
Ces now near bim, be ban gone towards
Chattanooga and contemplates a raid on
On Tuesday last everything was quiet in
front ef Marietta, in Georgia. There bad
been fain for two days, which made the
road iffi passable and prevented movements
by either Johnson or Sherman
It is reported that the remnant of the
Banks' expedition, having been reinforced
by three thousand men from New Orleans,
have been taken by Gen. Canby from tbe
mouth of Red River to Port Hudson. This
evacuates all Western Louisiana.
Morgan has got safely out of Kentucky.
Three hundred of bia men have crossed Ihe
Ohio to make a raid into Indiana.
At eleven o'clock on Wednesday morn
ing last Geti. Smith, Irom Bermoda Hun
dred, reached the' outer line of the Confed
erate works northeast of Petersburg, runn
ing from Dutch Gap to Port Walthall. With
out any resistance they were abandoned to
bim. He then advanced against the second
lire, ronning north west from Port Wathall
to the Richmond Railroad. A stream call
ed Bakehouse Creek runs in Iront of these,
and forming a raviiie makes them very
strong. Smith attacked them and skirmish
ed until night, but could effect nothing. His
northern flank crossed fne failrorad running
to Richmond aud held if, but be could make
no impression upon the Confederate works.
During Thursday and Friday he did noth
ing. Tbe report that be captured a large
number of cannon end prisoners is trncon
firmed acd is most probably untrue.
At daylight on Thursday last, Hancock,
after a long march from the James River,
reached the enemy's lines south- of Peters-
i burg, ne moved into- ar position sooth of
Smith, with the Appomattox River running
between them. On Thursday night Burn'
side's corps arrived a d took position on
Hancock's southern flank. He approached
Petersburg from tbe south and on Friday
morning, by a surprise, captured two small
redoubts on tbe outer line with foor cannon
and four hondred and fifty prisoners. Dur
ing Friday Warren came up, and -took po
sition west of Buroside. Wright was stilf
busy with the trains. At eight o'clock on
Saturday morning the Federal troops were
in a semicircle around Petersburg. Smith
was rive miles northeasrof the town ; Han
cock four miles southeast ; Bnrnside and
Warren about two miles south. Tbe enemy
made a Mrorvg delense, and except live cap-
tore of the undefended line ol works irom
Port Wahhall to Dutch Gap, tbe only gains
of the Federal army bad been the capture
of the two redoabu by. Bornside. The Fed (
eral loasee up to Thursday evening were
about one thousand. There isno report of
any subsequent carnalities. Oar latest in
telligence to eight 6'clock on Saturday
morning. (There tfre reports current that
the enemy had attacked and defeated the
exposed northern 'flank of "Smith's corp,
which was north ot the Appomattox, and
extended across the Richmor.d Railroad
Trains were running to Petersburg on this
railroad, and Smith had evidently been
driven back. A large force of Confederates
had come up and the woiks at Petersburg
'were fully manned.
