The idministratlon IGirlng Evideneelin Fa vor of General Mcllellan. In view of the attempts of the Republi can papers to circulate slanders against General McCIellan, we give the following testimony respecting his abilities and ser vices from various members of the Admin istration : Washington, Jclt 2, 1862. Major General George B . MeCUllan : I am satisfied that yourself, officers and men have done the best you could. All accounts say better fighting was never done. Ten thousand thanks lor it. A. Lincoln. Two days after Mr. Lincoln had fuller information, .General McCIellan received the lolldwing : Washington, Jolt 5, 1862. 3ajor General George D. McCIellan, Com manding Army of tkeFolomac : A thousand thanks for the relief your two despatches of 12 and 1 P. M. yester day gave me. Be'atsnred the heroism of yourself, officers and men is, and be appre ciated. A Lincoln. In August, 1862, Mr. (Lincoln made a speech at the White House, in which he said : Xhere has been a very wide-spread at tempt to have a quarrel betewen General McCIellaa and the Secretary of War. General McClellau's attitude (is such that in the very selfishness of his nature he can not but wish to be successful, and I hope he wili. I believe Gen. McCIellan wishes to be successful. General McCIel lan is not to', blame kfor asking ,wht.khe needed. I believe he is a brave and able man, and Island here, as justice requires me to do, take upon myself what hasjbeen charged to the Secretary of War as with holding from'him. Here is General Halleck's'testimony : Wash inoton, Aroosr 31, 1862. Mnjor General George B. McCIellan I beg of you to assist me in this 'crisis with your, ability j and experience. I am entirely tired out H. W. Halleck, General-in-chieL Washington, D C.,',September 30. Major General George B. McCleUan Com manding, Etc. : Gicneral : jYour report of yesterday, giving the results of the' battles of South Mountain and Antietam, has been received and submitted to the President. They were not only hard fought battles, but well earned and decided victories. The Talor and endQrance of your array t 1 . . . in the several conflicts which terminated in , . . . , , the expulsion of the enemy trom.the. loyal ,uo . .... . State of Maryland, are creditable alike to n8 t'ops and officers who commanded them. A grateful country, while mourning the lamented dead, will not be unmindful of the honors due to the living. H. W. Hallecc. General-in chief. Says Mr Lincoln, referring to Antietam: War Department, 1 Washington, Sspt. 15, 1862 j Your despatch .of today received. God bless you and all with you. Destroy the rebel army if possible, A. Lincoln. To Major General Geo. B McCIellan. Bat the Republican Congress also gives its testimony. On the 16th day of July, Mr. Edwnrds (Rep.) of New Hampshire, offered the following resolution in the House of Representatives, and it was unan imonely adopted ; Resolved, That the thanks of this House be presented to Major General George B. McCletlan and ihe officers and soldiers of his command, for the series of brilliant and deceive victories which by their skill and bravery they have achieved over rebels and traitors in arms on the battle fields of West ern Virginia. On the 9th of May, 1862, after the victo ries of Yorktown, Williamsburg, and West Point, Owen Lovejoy, the most ultra radi cal in the Hoose of Representatives, offered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That it is with feelings of de vout gratitude to Almighty God that the House of Representatives, from time to time hears of the triumphs of the Union army in the great gtruggle for the suprema cy of the Constitution and the integrity of the Union. Resolved, That we receive with profound satisfaction intelligence of the recent vic tories achieved by the armies of the Poto mac, associated trom their localities with those of the Revolution, and that the sin cere thanks of this House are hereby ten dered to Major General Geo. B. McCIellan for the display of those high military qual ities which secure important results with but little sacrifice of human life. Let Democrats bear this testimony in mind, and when efforts are made to be-little General McClellan's great services to the State, let this significant testimony of Mr. Lincoln, Gen. Halleck and the Repub lican Congress, be produced. Evert Democratic journal in Ohio (ex cept the Crisis) is out loathe nominees of the Convention. The Dayton Empire, Vallandigham's organ is among the number. rTbe abolitionists have been looking for him to oppose the nominal ion, but in this, as in every thing .else which squints towards success for Lincoln, tbey are disappointed. We pity the poor fellows, they are in great distress. The opposition to McCIellan is I fntila. The oeoole have seen enough of J Liocolnism, and the cry is down with the rai!tplimT. "Come Back MCleIIan When the 'smutty joker" dismissed the glorious M'Clelan from the command of the army of the Potomac , a touching scene took place . M'CIellan read the order of dismissal, "and immediately prepared to take leave of his brave army. He mount ed his horse, and rode along the entire line.' Hie braves supposed hewas review ing them, and they sent up cheer after cheer from'every' regiment. Having reach ed the end of the line, he wheeled bis horse, and, taking bis cap from his head, again proceeded slowly along the line. He gave no word of command, and tears were in bis eyes. "Farewell, my brave boys, God bless you ! " were the words he uttered in front of everj regiment. Then it was that the veterans composing the army of the Potomac began to understand what had taken place; then it was that they discovered that the remorseless, treacher ous and ignorant '"Lincoln, had deprived them of their beloved commander. A voice like thunder went up. Harkj! "Come back, M'Clellan.or Goff take, M'CIellan, come backV These were the words, this the cry that vibrated all along the lines. Regiment re sponded to Regiment, and for nearly an hour the same cry could be heard, 4come back, M'CIellan 1" The soldiers wept like children, and so did ibeir dismissed com mander. Men long accustomed to hard ships, privations and blood, were unman ned when told that M'Clellen was to leave them forever. Napoleon in his palmiest days never possessed the affec tion ot bis soldiers in a greater degree than did M'CIellan possess the affections and the confidence of the men Wio .composed the army of the Potomac. Tbey knew him to be a wise, prudent and brave com mander ; they knew that he fell for his men, andillinglyx shared their privations; they knew him to be a fcood man, a chris tian, and a true patriot, who was willing to sacrifice all he possessed, even life itself, if by so doing he could restore the Union and secure peace. Thus believing, thsy loved M'CIellan, and were almost (rantio when they heard that be bad been taken from them by (he cold-hearted Lincoln. The dismissal of M'CIellan was as dev ilish as it was treasonable and wicked. It was not '.because the administration bad lost confidence in his militsry capacity. No, no. It was becaase M'CIellan desired to carry on the war, not for the purpose of abolishing slavery, but to restore the Un ion. He was for the Union as it was and for the Constitution as it is, and be rnA ho entertained these views, and .nA;.taA . ;obd and treasonable, the ICUUIBIUV uv - 9 mad Abolition notions that had been hatch- ed in New England, he was dismissed from his command. Had M'Clellan's policy ' been adhered to and was me policy mai scribed to the rebellion would long since have been crushed, with a restored Union and restored good feeling. Bat Abe Lin coln did not watt this his political pros pects, he felt sore, would be very much damaged if tne war should end. He desir ed the war to go on, for this was bis politi cal capital, and be wanted to be re-elected. Hence be dismissed M'CIellan. The people this fall will respond to the cry of the army of the Potomac iney will tell M'CIellan to "come back." Afier the 4th of March he will be the comman- j der-in-chief of our arrry, and old Abe will again return to Illinois, thers to end Lis in famous life. American Volunteer. No Room for Hesitation As between McCIellan and Lincoln therej is no room for hesitation. Oh what a contrast between the life and character of the gifted soldier, ardent patriot, sagacious statesman and true man, whom we nominated at Chicago, for the first office in the gift of a free people, when compared with Lincoln. Whether you consider his conduct at Churnbusco and Cheputtapec, bis arduous toils in expedi tions for the government, his Crimean re port, his Western Virginia Campaign, bis organ ization of the Army of the Potomac, his service at Yorktown, his victory al Fair Oaks, his masterly movements during the memorable seven days: his triumph at South Mountain and Antietam ; his honor ed and dignified retirement when his dis grace was attempted by the administration; in all, you see gleaming with beautiful lus tre the character of an American, 'Upon whom every god Did seem to set bis seal, To give the world assurance of a man." The best type of our country to-day is General McCIellan. His dignity under continued detraction ; his patriotism under unceasing trials ; his courage under contin ued ordeals, that csuse the stoutest heart to quail, his freedom from demagogueism, his love of his whole country, all, all are attributes that remind us of the earlier men of the nation, "the dead but sceptered sovereigns." Can any prudent man, any wise or patriotic man hesitate between the two characters, McCIellan and Lincoln 7 the voice of the nation is. now heard daily in tones that cannot be mistaken. This great uprising of the masses pro claims in thunder tones that Gen. McCIel lan is the choice of the people lor Presi- Aant tar four Tears from the fourth of March next.

Tat For the last ten of twelve days, tb.0 Post offices ia the western section of La zerne county, and the northern portions of Columbia county, have been flooded with Electioneering Documents, to the amount of wheelbarrow loads, all directed to B. B. Emry, one of the hirelings of Mr. Abra ham Lincoln, and how much further, the country is flooded by this kind of trashy is unknown to the publio in general.- These documents consists in part of a Bi ographical sketch of Andrew Johnson, to gether with his epeech at Nashville and. another headed George U. PendIeton9 the copperhead candidate for Vice President, (beautiful language for Christiana ' and gentlemen,) &c. &o.( and sow within few days Mr. Emry has appeared himself probably to make a judicious distribution, of those valuable documents, and perhaps too, of collecting the tax of Two Dollars from each Postmaster for the "purpose of defraying electioneering expenses. Tha Reverend B. B. Emry is the same fellow who came up from Washington one year ago, to oast an illegal and fraudulent vote against Judge Woodward. In the first place his father, Wm. Emry made ansae cessful trials to the assessors of several distriots in Luzerne oonnty to have him assessed, his residence being at (Poshing ton. But just ten days before the gener al election, he came up, stopped with his father in Fishingcreek two or three days; then proceeded to Wyoming county, but was sure to return by the second Tuesday in October, and there claimed the right to vote, on a ten day's residence, which was objected to by znaay,but his vote was final ly taken by a good natured Democratic board. He no doubt, will try to play the same game at the approaching election. But we caution any board of election from being again so imposed upon. Under Gen eral Jackson's Administration, clerks that went into the States to interfere in their elections were promptly dismissed, but an der the present imbecile administration, . they are encouraged, and paid about five dollars per day. This fellow does not wear a scotch-cap and plaid-cloak, bat a very high crowned fur hat, and a suit of black clothes, and the words came oat of hit mouth as smooth as oil, and as persuasive as if his very existence' depended upon the re-election of Mr. Lincoln.
