THE Union County Convention met
here on Tuesday last, and unanimously
c.iminated ALEX. K. I.l'CLun.P.., of Gull

of. Chambersburg, for Commissioner ;
Tou H. CRISWELL, of Green, for Diree
of the Poor, and MORROW R. SKIN - HRH,
of Lnrgan, for Auditor. Congressional
conferees were chosen favorable to Gen.
- Wm. H. KOONTZ, of Somerset, for Con
gress, and Hon. ALEX. KING, of Bedford,
for Judge. The Convention was entirely
harmonious in its action. A series of
sound resolutions-were adopted. '
A BEDFORD county correspofdent
writes us that the copperheads in that
section are industriously circulating the
report, that if the soldiers are allowed to
vote; negroes in the service will also be
enabled to vote. By'this sort of misrep
resentation they hope to induce men to
GENS4NROOKS ARID AVERILL pursued
the rebel Gen. Early up the Shenandoah
Valley, and defentedhim in an engagement
on Taesday of last week. On Saturday
the rebelforces of Breckinridge and Early
were Concentrated, and atti►cked Crooks
near Winchester, compelling him to re
treat to Martinsburg. The Union forces
were pursued to Martinsburg, where they
mad a stand and were re-inforced by
Hunter, on Monday.
This retrograde movement of our forces
created much uneasiness on the border,
and a number.of persons near the river
sent their stock off again; but at the time
of this *riling (3.304.. M. Tuesday) no re
bel demonstrations have been made on
the Potomac at any point; and we do not
apprehend that any will be made. Gen.
Much has the border well picketed, and
the fords are all guarded, so that a sur
prise upon our people is hardly possible.
Should any threatening movements be
made in this direction, we doubt not that
Gen. Couch will, as he has always done
heretofore, give timely notice to remove
stock and other valuables.
WHISPERS OF PEACE.
At last a faint star glimmers in the dark
horizon, and whispers PEACE ! It may

and to take refuge in -fortifications is to
infyite certain capture.
She.rman's army is abundantly strong ;
for its work ; bat Grant's is not. It has
in vain sought to 'deliver battle to Lee in
an open field since it crossed the Rapidan
in May, and to-day it would annihilate the,
best Only of treason could it be forced
into open action. But it cannot make the, - ,
fearful sacrifices necessary to carry strong
fortification by assault, and it is not pow
erful enough; to sever and hold all the lines,
to Richmond and thus compel a field figlt;
a retreat or a surrender. Had Butler
moved 75,000 men south of RichMond
when Gen. Grant started out, and Hunter
a column of like strength to Lynchburg,
the possession of Richmond would have
I been aotured without a siege. and ten
thousand heroic lives would' have been
spared. It is now well known to the de
spairing traitors that en. Grant's army
soon will be large enoUgh to close the war
without desperate battles, and immediate-
ly upon the issue,ef a call for 500,000 ad
ditional men they confessedly yield the
ultimate issue; and commence an irregu
lar negotiation to open the door for peace.
Clement C. Clay, formerly a U. S. Sen
ator and now a rebel Senator from Ala
bama; Prof. J. P. Holcombe, arebel Con
gressman, and ,Geo. Sanders, formerly
custom-house official under Buchanan in
New York, and now a seedy adventurer,
have been_ on the Canada side of Niagara
Falls for some time, in consultation with
leading copperheads to direct the action
- of the Democratic National Convention,
so as best to serve the rebel cause. They
were doubtless duly accredited, but per
haps not officially, by the rebel authori
ties to tender terms of re-construction to
the Democracy; and to that end they had
been counselling for some days Vith the
leaders of that party ; but the call for new
troops defeated the whole negotiations
with the Democracy, as it points to a
close of the war by the utter destruction
of rebel military power, before the De
mocracy, even if successfal in the elect
tion, could belnvested with power to save
expiring treason and dignify its death by
a humiliating compromise.
In this extremity Mr. Sanders applied
to Mr. Greeley, of the Tribune, to procure
the rebel, commissioners to the Demo
cratic party a pass to Washington to open
the =way as they declared„for "termina
ting, at the .earliest possible moment, the
ealamnities of the war." They said that
they had not been accredited "as the bear
ers of propositions looking to the estab
lishment of peace," but that they "are in
the confidential employ of our (the rebel)
goVernmenti and are entirely familiar
kith its wishes and opinion's on that sub
ject." Their "confidential" employment
at the time was to make a treaty with the
°crew party to betray the govern
ment; but as their armies cannot survive,
un er the increase of ours, long enough
to 'secure aid from their natural ally in
the:North, they directed their confiden
tial mission to the government they meant
to l u betrayed into their hands.
Mi. Greeley pro Cured authority from the
President for them to proceed to-Wash
ington., believing them to W authorized
to propose terms of peace; but When they
disclaimed their authority. the President
met the proposition with the following
letter, which was delivered to the rebel
emissaries by Maj. Hay. his private Sec
retary : ..
Washington. July IS, 1x64. 1 .
To whom it may coutern: Any proposition
which embraces the restoration of- peace, the
integrity of the Union and the abandonment of
slavery, and :which comes by and with authori
ty that c:n control the armies now at war
against the United States, will be received and
considered by the Executive Government of
the United States, and will be met by liberal
terms on other substantial and collateral points,
and the bearers thereof shall have safe conduct
both ways ABRAHAM lascorai."
This simple propositioh,.demanding the
integrity of the Union' and the removal
of the cause of this unholy rebellion, was
not what the rebels had come to meet.
They had come to destroy by intrigue'
and treachery with perfidious men in the
North—not to bilild_,up the government,
and their after-thirught mission with the
government was ended. They made no
. proposition of peace, and when met with
one, they indignantly resented it,:iind he
themselves again to see what vitality
in the Democratic party could be turned
to heir desperate cause.
—So-ends the first step towards peace
—so goes out for a time the first dawn of
1k -brighter day ; but it leaves the silver
fining to the cloud, and proclaims the
waning power of treason and the early
noontide of ,Peace and Union. It cannot
long be delayed. Despair only could have
wrung from them the effort .of rlay and
•Holcombe to avert the impending and
.final overthrow of their military force,
and soon we shall hear from the desolate
land of crime—not proposals to negotiate
with traitors, but assurance of returning

the usurped powers of the fiends who have

—We have standing commissioners of
Peace named Grant and Sherman. To
them and their brave men is the Sacred
cause of the Republic entrusted. The die,
banding of rebel armies and obedience to
tha laws on the part of traitors, will make
them sheath - their -.words, and.proclaint
that the Western 7 orld is still the home
of Freedom, an' that its great Republic
has survived th‘ combined efforts of De-s
-potism and Treason to destroy it.
VOLUM =Efts AND BOUNTIES.
We give elsewhere the quotas of the
several districts of this county under the
late call for 500,000. Oar table may net
be exactly correct. but it 'will not vary
materially when the quotas are officially
declared. It will be seen that our county
must furnish an aggregate of 870 men,
and a draft will be made on the sth of Sep
tember, oF soon thereafter, for the deficit
in every sub-district. -
We trust that some uniform system will
be adopted for the raising of volunteers
and the payment of bounties. Certainly
each County should have uniformity in
its sub-districts, and as far as practicable
Mere should be uniformity in the counties
throughout the State— We are not confi
dent that the most unjust system prac
ticed by the cities, of offering large boun
ties to obtain recruits from the rural dis
tricts, can be arrested; but we are jiot
without hope that it may be done. It
would be but simple justice for the War
Department to require arnits tote cred
ited, under all circumstances, to-the lo
calities in which they are enrolled. As
each district under the new call, mast fur
nish its full quota, of Men. actually mus-.
tered into service, there is the grossest in
justice iuiallowing wealthy cities to come
in competition with sparsely populated
and comparatively poor districts in the
payment of bounties. The result may
be, if it is allowed, that some districts,
unable or unwilling to pay bounties, will
be so-depleted in men by the tempting
bounties of the cities, that they will not
1 hav men enough left liable to military
1 duty, to fill their quotas. We appeal to
the authorities to arrest this glaring wrong
The same argument applies to the dif
ferent districts' of the county. There
should be some uniform system adopted.
and a common effort made -to fill our
quota without competition between dis
qicts and theintervention, of the bounty
jobbers and sharks, who batten on local
committees and soldiers. We believe that
the best plan would be for the county to
offer a bounty of $lOO to volunteers, and,
make provision also for the payment of
$lOO to the family of every drafted man
dependent upon his labor for support.
This would require a large expenditure
of money it is true ; but it would not cost
the people Of the county' one-half as much
as will be expended, and collected by taxes
in the townships, if each
. distriet gdns
hap-hazard into competition with the rest,
and a vastly greater amount of good will
be done for soldiers and their families.
Remember that the families of soldiers,
when in want, as is often the case, are a
tax upon the generosity of the people of
each district under any circumstances;
and to make-provision for families of con
scripts is humane, just and in the end eco
nomical. This system would, we are
persuaded. produce more go with with the
same means, than any other Vat could
be adopted. The burden would tall equal-
ly upon aII, and men Would feel that if
compelled to serve, they would not leave
their loved ones to want or doubtfid
charity, - -
—And now a word to earnest, 'fai' tidal
men on the subject of " Volunteers. The
effort to raise troops .will doubtless be
embarrassed by the insidious and tireless
efforts of men who secretly love treason
and hate our country and its sacred cause.
They will scatter the poison of distrust
wide Spread and hinder hundreds of the
Democratic faith, who still believe De
mocracy to mean deOtion to the govern
ment, from entering the ranks; but how
ever thus embarrassed, let patriotic men
of all parties exert themselves unceasingly
to put in volun teem at the earliest possi
ble period. Fifty thousand soldiers add
ed to Grant within the next thirty days
would most likely be worth more than
thrice fifty three months thereafter; and
it is not only possible, but most probable
that if such an increase of the army can
be made, the military power of the rebel
lion will be utterly destroyed the coming
autumn, and the war practically ended.
In PennsylVania, and especially in the
southern portion of the State, we have
everything at stake. ' — General Sherman
seems to have Atlanta within his grasp.;
and that point once surrendered by the
rebels, they have no point south of that
worth defending but Mobile. The prOb:
ability is that they will abandon Georgia
and throw the
,Shattered army of John-
stun to Lee. If that be done, and Grant
is not speedily re-inforced, so that he can,
not only maintain the siege of Richmond,
but resist any offensive movement North
on the part of the rebels, we shall have
the last desperate death throes of treason
on the Pennsylvania side of the Potomac.
On the other hand if 50,000 volunteers
could be added to Grant during the next
.month,'the rebels would be powerls to
take the offensive, and utterly unable to
subsist the remnants of their armies in
the narrowed dominions of traitor&
