the admirable speech of ANDREW-JOHN

for Vice President. It is -published on
our first page, and is a string of pearls

Tin WOUNDED WASHINGTON. -7
An exchange informs us that there seems
;to be a pleasant rivalry in progress among
the members of the various State relief
:associations of Washington in aid of the
wounded soldiers and their friends who
.seek them or tidings from them.
Besides the forceeMployedsby the State
governments to work in this chuse, there
is a considerable number of clerks in the
various departments 'from most of the
(Ir-States who devote a large portion of their
time after office hours, in att6tdance
r iche hospitals, and at their State agencies,
, -to assist those ragularly engaged. There
are, also, not a few who seek out the suf-
faring from their own immediate sections,
zed contribute to their relief.
The more troops each State may have
sent to the field, the greater the obliga
'ion that rests upon their fellow-citizens
in' the rear to aid in supplying their wants
- and relieving their sufferings. Kindly
words, stroneOpOlitical encouragement,
and labor in. the various organized de
partments of the Government and of the
universal relief associations are not suffi
cient. Many who need care and assist
ance can only be effectively reached by
their fellow-citizens from their respective
states. Therefore, we trust that this
praiseworthy emulation will continue and
,be increased while the war lasts.
illEirNow that Abraham Lincoln has
'been renominated for President, and it
is a fixed fact that he will be the Union
Candidate in the approaching campaign,
the opposition- editors aro beginning to
show their teeth and growl most spitefully
at the unanimity of the convention which*
has placed him pefore tlie - people. They
doubtless see in this the foreshadowing
of his triumpLant election against any and
all opposition which may be brought
against him; and hence their uneasiness
and anxiety to make a premature exposi
,of their dissatisfaction. Let them
whiny away, it will hurt no one but them
selves, and when the ball is once fairly
opened they will have an opportunity of
witnessing a little more of the spirit and
enthusiasm with which the people can
rally around the standard of a tried and
.faithful public servant. .
Ma. VALLANDIGHAM has taken a bold
step. A banished man--banished not
only nfter a trial . by a military commis
siati, for a military offence, but with the
approval of the President and people of
the United States—he has dared to return
and defy the laws which punished,lhim.
His speech at Hamilton, Ohio, is actually
wicked in its insinuation that the Presi
dent could possibly wish to take his life,
and atrocious in its subtle attempt to excite
his followers to violence.. •What potion
the Government will take we need not:
anticipate, but it is right that it should
be pr)tnpand thorough. Vallandtgliam's
reasons for this audaobus movement are
not difficult to guess: He bids for the
ChicagCnomination, and desire's to -- tive
new trouble and diasention to the North.
A FAVORITE- way with the CotTer
beads this season, ip holding Conventions,
is to dodge alh , ,,platforins and adjourn
withent enunciation of any priueipls. This
has been done at Indianapolis and a few
days since in the Maisie Convention. They
aro waiting for the Chicago Convention to
pitch the tune, and say whether it will be
Democratio to oppose or to sustain the
war. But the party is no more ready to
:speak out throligh the Chicago Conven
tion than through its State Conventional'
and so it is going to postpone the Chicago
'Convention till September.. Perhaps it
wont get 'ready to tell where it steads
Itittil after the election is over.
June 23, 1864— T p..m.—The attack
upon the 2d Corps On Wednesday, near
the Weldon Railroad, did not result so
disastrously as at 'first supposed.
The line was formed by Barloiv's . divik l .
ion, being on the life; Birney's Mott in
command, in the centre, and Gibbons on
the right. -
It was expected that the 6th Corps
would have connected on the left with
Barlow, but it seems quite a gap was left,
into which A. P. Rill's Rebel corps en
teied, and befoie our men were aware of
it they received a volley in the rear, which
created quite a panic in our ranks and
caused a rapid retreat to- the woods in the
rear of the Third Division.
This left the flank of the Third Divis

advantage of it, charged through and
fairly iuto our pits, ;ordering the men to

Some four of our officers engaged in
this fight had just kilned their commands
after being exchanged, and when sur
rounded and ordered to surrender, replied,
'.Never 1 Death rather than the Libby
Prison I" and, fighting their way out as
best they could, many of them succeeded
in' getting back safe to our lines.
At 8 p. m. a cbarge was made by the
2d Corps and the line of works from which
they had been forced in the afternoon,
We lost scarcely a man in this advance,
as the Rebels fired too hieb, the balls all
passing over the heads of our men. A
number of prisoners was taken.
Skirmishing was kept up all night
alone the line, the pickets being, at some
points, not fifty yards apart.
At , daylight this morning an advance
of the entire line was made, when it was
found that the Rebels had taken a new
position some distance further back,wbere

therefore, but the Danville road as a,•sin•

Maryland has abolished Blavery, and

Union National Platform.
%'The following is the platform adopted
by the Union National Convention
Resolved,. That His the highest duty
of every -American citizen _to maintain
against all their enemies the integrity of
the Union and the paramoutliauthority of
the Constitution and laws of the United
States; and that, laying aside alt differ
ences aiid political opinions, we pledge
ourselves, as Union men, animated by a
common sentiment, and aiming at a com
mon object, to do everything in our pow
er to aid the Government in quelling
by force of arms the rebellion now raging
against its authority and in bringing to
the punishment due to their crimes the
rebels and traitors arrayed against it.
Resolved, That we approve the deter
mination of the Government of the I
United States not to compromise with
rebels, or to offer no terms of peace, ex
cept such as may be based upon an un
conditional surrender of their hostility
and a return to their just allegiance to
the Constitution and laws of the United
States, and that we call upon the Gov
' ornment to maintain this position, and .to
prosecute the war with-the utmost possi
ble vigor to the complete suppression of
the rebellion, in the full reliance upon
the self-sacrificing patriotism and heroic
valor and the undying devotion of the
American people to their! country and its
Resolved, That as Slavery was the
cause, and now constitutes the strength,
of this rebellion and as must be, always
and everywhere hostile to the principles
of Republican Government, justice and
the National safety demand its utter and
complete extirpation from the soil of the
Republic. And that while we uphold
and maintain the acts, and proclamations
by which the Government, in its own de
fence, has aimed a death-blow at this , gi
gantic evil, we are in favor furthermore
of such an amendment to the Coustitu-
ioa to be made by the people in conform
ity with its provisions, as shall terminate
aml forever prohibit the existence of
slavery within the liwits or the jurisdic
tion.sof the United States.
Resolved, That the thanks of the
American people are due to the soldiers
and sailors of the army and navy who
have periled their lives in defence of
their country and in vindication of the
how of the flag; that the nation owes to
them some permanent recognition of their
patriotism and their valor and ample and
permanent provision for those of their
survivors who have received disabling
and honorable wounds in the service of
their country ; and that memories of those
who have fallen in its , defence shall be
held in'grateful and everlasting remem
Pesolred, That we approve and applaud
the practical wisdom, the unselfish patri
otism and the unswerving fidelity to the
Constitution and the principles of Amer
ican liberty with which Abraham Lincoln
has discharged, under, circumstances of
unparalleled difficulty, the great duties
and, responsibilities of the Presidential
office; that we approve and endorse, as
demanded by the emergency, and essen
tial to the preservation of the nation and
as within the provisions of the Constitu
tion, the measures and acts which he has
adopted to defend the nation against its
open and secret foes; that we approve
especially the Proclamation of Emanci
pation, and the eurploytnent as Union
soldiers of men heretofore held in slavery,
and that we have full confidence in his
determination to carry out those and all
other Constitutional measures essential to
the salvation of the country with full and
complete effect. I
Resolved, That we deem it essential to
the gen'ral welfare that harmony should
prevail in the National Councils, and we
regard as worthy of public confidence and
official trust those only who cordially en•
aorso the priuziples proclaimed in these
resolutions and which should characterize
the administration of the Government.
Resolved, That the Government owes
to all men employed in its armies, with
out regard to distinction of color, the full
protection of the laws of war and that any
violation of these laws, or the usages of
civilized nations in time of war, by the
rebels now in arms, should be wade the
subject of prompt and full redress.
Resolved, That foreign immigration,
which in the past has added so much to
the wealth, development of resparees and
increase of the power of this nation, the
asylum of the oppressed of all nations,
should be fostered and encouraged by a
liberal anu just policy..
'Resolved, That we are in favor of the
speedy' construction . of the railroad to the
Resolved, That the National faith,
pledged for the redemption of the public
debt, must bb kept inviolate, and that for
this purpose we recommend economy and
rigid responsibility in the - public expen•
ditures, and a vigorous and just system
of taxation; that it is the duty of every
loyal State to sustain the credit and pro
mote the use of the National currancy.
Resolved, That we approve the posi
tions taken by the Government that the
people of the United States can never
regard with indifference the attempt of
any European, power to overthrow. by
force, or to supplant by fraud the insti
tutions of any Republican Government
on the Western Continent; and that they
will view with extreme jealousy, us men
acing to the peace and independence of
their own country, the efforts of any such
