FILL rp OUR BRAVE ARMIES!
Loiha. MEN! Atlanta, the last inland
stronghold of Treason in the Cotton States,
HAS FALLEN! The victorious legions a
the heroic Sherman now rest in that stub
bornly defended citadel of crime, after a
march and series of battles unexampled
in the history of .modern warfare. Their
noble sacrifices and brilliant achievements
hurl back in confusion and shame the
driveling cowards who proclaim the war
a " failure," and give earnest promise of a
speedy, honorable and enduring Peace._
• But one vital point of Treason remains,
and that is wasting in strength under the
tireless energy and unfaltering courage of
the great leader and 'soldier of the Army of
the Potomac. They ask for one hundred
thousand men promptly to enable them to
consummate their great work and preserve

respond to the call if citizens but do their
linty generously in providing forlge wants
.of themselves and their household gods.
This is the work of every patriot, of even•
christian, of. every friend of humanity, 'cif
order and of government: and let it be
done with hearty, ceaseless energy until it
is completed; and our gallant armies,
whose heroism and victories stand unpar
alleled in history, will soon return to us

has swept treason to perpetual infamy, and
given to the world a beneficent govern

TILE CIIICAGO NOMINEIIi
. The Democratic National Convention
'met in Chicago on the 29th ult., and after
three days • of caucusing, mainly - devoted
to efforts to hold the hundrati of thous

disloyalpurpose, nominated Gen. Gr.p,unF.
B. M'CLEaLAN, of New Jersey, for Presi

Ohick, - for Vice President. Both nomina
tions were made without a serious contest,
and; save a few harmless growls at the
moderate evidences M'Clellan • has in his
time given of hoStility to treason, with
r - ientire unanimity.
• Gen. M'Clellan is a man of blameless
character, of moderate abilities, of faithful
impulses, and, if left to himself, would
naturally prefer patriotism to treason. lie

civil life to make him a Presidentiai can
nidate ; and is doubthrss to-day amazed at
the.concurrence of circumstances that has
made him the leader of a great party in a
_most momentous p - olitiral struggle. That
he is to be the instrument of others, if
called to the Presidential chair. rather than
the leader of an administration, is palpa
ble from the notorious fact that the men
who nominated him first adopted a plat-
Jorm directly confronting every public
profession he ever made touching the
vital issues to be decided at the next elec
tion. If he tvere a leaderLe bold, able
matchless leader—a Napoleon or a Jack
son, no conclave headed and controlled by
Vallandighams and Woods would have
presented him for the Presidency in the,
face of his recent declaration at West Point,
that treason must be stippressed by force
of arms or. the government surrendered ;
but they have ventured to assume that he
will stultify himself; that he will be pliable
apd therefore most useful in their hands;
itig now forhim to detefinine whether
tipy shall win a traitor, or. he lose a nom-,
thation proffered with the condition of
perfidy to himself, to his noble, army. to,
The writer hereof is of those who have
ever judged Gen. M'Clellan kindly, and
who would greatly prefer tb speak well
him to-day than to condemn him. , When
in command we have ever sustained him ;
and when deprived of his command, al
though painfully' cominced of the justice
that made it inexorable, we hoped and
urged that he should be called to -some
position in active service suited to his rank
and conceded milithry abilities as an or
ganizing and defensive officer. Notwith
standing the cloud of treachery- that Ills- ,
tend its fatal grasp npon him at an early ,
day, and,impereeptibly nyule him his own
and his country's foe, he never surrendered
the paramount claims of the government
to assert its inherent power to live : and
when he manfully re-asserted the doctrine
of the_patriot.at West Point in. a recent
speech—declaring that there was no rem
edy for rebellion but war until traitors
submit to lawful authority—we rejoiced
that he seemed Equal to I - hi:great task of
defying the traitors who dogged his steps,
basked in his fame, appropriated his power i
and hoped to make him the great 'suicide
of our National Freedom.
-7-Tlie day of trial has now come, and he
stands before the country dwarfed and
shorn of his only strength—and about to
bow in humble submission to the leaders
who have resolvsed at Chicago that his de
clarations in behalf of the nmintenance4
the government were but rethorical falSe
hoods, and that his .sangtrihary battles
were but remorseless butcheries of a braVe

Tat Democratic County Convention
met last week, and tmanimously re-nom

legislature, and also made nominations for
the minor county officers. Congressional

We are inclined to the opinion that-the
Demdcratic managers will have a fair
share, of trouble in getting the confused
and conflicting elements of the ticket to

systematically stied.' Gen. Coffroth will
be for war of the blood and thunder order,
but it must be most carefully managed so
as not to hurt rebels or traitors. He isfor

government; but when he is called upon

way to favor war against treasomand

hand, will be for war rather , against traf
tors than against the government. He
has stumped the county in favor of war,
until traitors unconditionally submit to
lawful authority, and we have seen noev

war and peace blended in all the beauty
of rhetoric and sublimity:of poetry—,par

- The Democratic Natiouril Convention met at
Chicago on Monday, Anguet 29tti, fur the purpose
of nominating candidates for President and Vice
President. A very large crowd of outsiders were
in attendance, and the vast preponderance was
boisterous for M'Clellan. A strong, steady cur
rent was Manifested for an out and out Peace
mau headed by the Woods, Vallandigham, Harris,
Long and others: but finding that they dare not
take one of their own kind, they resolved to take
a man with a moderate war record who would
yield implicit obedience to their treasonable policy-r
-and purposes. -
Gov.l3igler of this State was honored with the
temporary chairmanship, and., he was thus ma... ,
bled to get off one of his stereotyped speeehes,
containing nothing but what somebody has said`
much better before. Little else was done on the
first day. On the second day Gov. Seymour of
New York was elected permanent Preshlent, and
he made a most diplomatic Speech, concealing his
rebel proclivities with tolerable grace. Long
and Vallandigham the open, insolent traitors of
Ohio, were the representatives of their deleg,ation
on the most important committees—Val being on
resolutions. Hon. Asa Packer was a Vice-Pres
dent, and Frank M. Hutchison one of the Secre
taries—both from this State. The first struggle
was on the platform; but it' was a feeble effort of
the war men. They were utterly overwhelmed
by the followers of Vallandigham. Mr, Guthrie
of Ken4wky, made the report, which was adopt
ed withibut four dissenting voices-.opus, showing
that the entire party was bound body and soul to
submission to the traitors who are murdering our
brave Bonn and brothers, pillaging and, burning our
towns, tend starving our prisoners. The folloir

General nominations itPresident were then
made, and the names of Gen. Geo. B. M'Clellari,
Z. W. Powell, Thos. A. Seymour, and Franklin
Pierce were presented. A spicy debate ensued,
in which a tilt was made at 31'Clellan by Mr.
Harris, of Maryland, who deuounceil him as a ty
rant,and assassin for arresting the Maryland leg- .
islature. He said that "all the charges of usur
pation and tyranny that can be brought against
Lincoln and - Antler 1 could make and substantiate
against br allan." He further said that "Mc-
Clellan was the assassin of ytate Rights; the user
per of libel.rties, and that if nominated he would be
beaten er l erytchfre as he was at Antietam!" Char
ley Carrigan,'of Philadelphia, attempted a Judi •
lleation - of M'Clellan, and General Morgan, who
,basqly ran away from Cumberland Gap and was
'compell€4l to retire from the service therefor, fol. r
lowed to rescue 31 . Ciellan from the loyal act for
which - he was arraigned. Mr. Long, .of Ohio,
next preitested against the nomination of M'Clel
lan. He said:
"Lincoln ha:liven guilty of interfering-with the freedom
of sivech.fik freedom of elections, and of arbitrary arrests.

Northeast. Weak a= is your platform in many respects,
we will stand up, do all in our power tom:detain it; but,
in God's name, don't add to its weakness by placing such
a man in nomination.",
After this terrible assault upon the "Little Na
poleon," Charley Carrigim again rushed to his de
fence, but as nobody listened to it, nobody deem
ed it worth reporting. After Long had closed bia
speech, some one insulted him,' whereupon the
pugnacious Long knocked the impudeu t delegate
dowu,aud a row occured, from which the Conve
ntion was rescued by an adjournment.
The Convention reassembled at 10 A. M. Wed
nesday, and without furtherjdebate proceeded to
nominate a candidate for President. All the can

When the' vote was announced it was received
with great enthusiasm, and the duty - of moving

making the motion said that "from the first mo

in this Convention-;peace--to the end that there
might be peace in the land. He then moved that
the nomination of Gen. Geo. B. M'Clellan be the

Herald of Saturday last, in its editorial leider re
viewing the political situation. It says:
"We have not the slightest. doubt that there is" ,
a mutual understanang between the Seymours, the
Woods, ralandigham and the rebels. This un
derstanding is shown in the the secession platfor
adopted by the Chicago Convention, and in the _
nomination of Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio—who is a
practical secessionist—for Vice President. We
have-now driven the rebels completely to the wall;
General Grant has the best ofthem at Richmond,
and General Sherman has succeeded in capturing
Atlanta. This is not the time, then, that any
reasonable man would be talking - about "an im- -
mediate cessation of - hostilities!' We are in fa- •
vor of an armistice, like that between Prussia and
'Denmark, where both sides hold their ground and
are ready to begin the conflict at any moment but ,
there,is a vast deal of difference between such an ,
armistice and the "immediate cessation of hostfli- -
ties" which the Chicago platform requires. Noth-
ing can explain such a platform trceept die hypothe
sis that it teas dictated by Jeff. Dans to the peace
democrats, and that these peace merefoisted it upon
the Chicago Con Gentian as the price of their endorse
ment of General Al Clellan,s nomination._

platform we arc at a loss how to follow him and de- -

we hope that he will never be foolish- enough to
do it. We advise and urge him to come out bold
ly and declare that his only platform is his past
record as a Union genenk and that - his sentiments
are those expressed in his letter from Harrison's
Landing and his oration at West Point. If he
