because—the South is filled with

them with being the authors of the

'dares that "they seem to he - labeling

- • In the extreme South and South
`West there is if possible still greater
dfstitution and sorrow among the de
luded people who in an evil hour gave
ib'emselves over to the crime of trea-

'vas commenced by them, their 'land
was teeming with wealth and plenty;
but now by, their own wanton .rebel
_l ion against the government that gave
,them peace; protection • and prosperi

are the fruits of treason in the South,
and the only places where their wants
arc supplied and the general - desola

the Old Flag asserts its
and gathers 'the' people again under

and_ the polley,Of the, Administration,
and although Slave State, will elect
the Uhl on tie k et;hy a d aided majority.
We subjoin .the platform: - -
Resolved, 1. That thetnion party of the
State of Delaware is uncompromisingly in
favor of maintaining the integrity of the na
tional government, and that its power, should
be steadily and vigorously exerted Until it
has compaled submission to its rightful au
thority. • j
2. That this war is and should be,waged
only for the•suppiession of the rebellion and
the vindication of the supremitcY of the Con:
stitution of the 'United States, but that in its
conduction it is the right, it is the duty, of
the government to use every means in its
power to subdue and utterly ,crush out the,
revolt /toning the laws of the,land t and thOr
rights of man:
3. That to this lend we approve tlie policy
of Emancipation ,and the employ - Merit of col
ored troops, as depriving our rebel ',enemies
of a most powerful auxiiiary,and as . afford
ing to ourselves;material assistance by the
ealistment - ofuspecies of force whoseThravery
and good conduct have been tested, and who
will save our own race not 'only from the
perils of the battle field, but the moil° deadly
malaria of a southern clime. That if frZim
this cisse the slaves of rebels shall be set
free, if will be justly attributable only to the
evil counsels of bad men who have; induced
their masters to take up arms against - the
government, and have compelled it to war
against slavery in its own defence.
4. That the temporary suspensiOn of the
privilege of the writ of habeas corpus was a
measure constitutional and necessary ; and
recognizing its propriety in this crisis of a
nation's peril, :We commend the Administra
tion that had the baldness 'to proclaim and
the vigor to enforce : it. That from mir our.
intercourse; we know that it announcement
gave renewed- assurance to loyal Men, 00'
that it was terrible to ',traitors only
5. _That we entertain entire confidence in
the wisdom, integrity and dispassionate jus

tWo'days past, consulting with the- authori
ties as to future. movements. It is under
stood that the army is about to go into win
ter quarters, but this information istimparted
merely as "Court gossip." The general im
pression, however; is that Gen. Lee will not
move from his fortified positions on the Rap
idan mid Gordonsville unless sorely pressed
b Meade's army, in which ease he can rea
dily tall back on the intrenchments around
this city. .
The flower of the army is at presient with
Bragg. Gen. Longstreet on being' ordered
to re-enforce the army on the Tennessee, re
ceived permission, to pick his men. He se
lected his favorite Generals, the lamented
Hood and Gen. Jenkins, Who was the terror,
of the foe on the Nansemond last spring, and
a number of others well and favorably known.
Having such veteran troops to fight with,.
men who have so often been baptized,in the
blood of Mars, and distinguished theinselveS
in every battle from Bull Run to Gettysburg,
Bragg was expected to annihilate the Union,
army, and not only to recapture Chattanooga,
but also pursue the flying enemy and at once
take possession of Nashville, and, in fact, of
all Tennessee. Longstreet feels the disgrace
badly, and only his great patriotism - mut de
votion to country cause - bun to serve under
an officer who is greatly inferiOr to him, as
a man and a soldier. It will' astonish no
one to hear very soon that Braiton- Bragg
has been relieved, and General Longstreet
ordered to assume his command. Such a re
suit would give general satisfaction.

ment has been going on in_ the Rebel Army
which, has caused considerable anxiety.—
Early on Saturday, morning, one of General
Kilpatrick's cavalry brigades attempted a
reconnoissance on the the south side of - Rob=
ertion's Elver,- when they were _met. by, a
large body of Stuart's Cayalry. After fight
ing an hour Kilpatrick ivas obliged :to.fai.l
back 'upon our Infantry reserves. Another
severe contest ensued when the Infantry Was
also obliged to give way, losifig i toonsiders-
Lao number of prisoners. A debidhrnent of
our cavalry then made a gallant dash at the
enemy and' recaptured all but 15 or 20 of our
lost men. The whole of our force, howev.eb
was pushed back toward Culpepper, contest
ing every foot of the grgimd. • Heavy" flriug
was heard in the afternoon, indicating that
the contest had been resume:- It is believed
,the Rebels have been chanOng'then
