GENTLEMEN : Your letter informing
int of my nomination by the Union-party
' Conferees of the 18th Cori , "ressional Dis
trict of Pennsylvania, - asseM bled at Will
iamsport on the Bth inst., as their cancli
dale for Congress, was received 'this
:morning. I hereby tender my thanis to
:the Conferees for their kind partiality in
j corfering upon me the unsought for; and
,unexpected honor of said nomination.
You further notify me in your letter; that
the Conferees from Tioga county refused
to participate in the Conference, because
of inability,to reconcile their claims with
the wishes of s majority of the Conferees
' of the other counties composing the dis
trict. The course pursued by the_Con
ferces of Tioga county evidences the fact
that there was not that. unanimity pre
vailing which is' necessary to seonre the
election of a Union candidate in the dis.
trict—a result so extremely important at
this time. Disaffection Of our frierds in
either of the oouties, to any consid.irablo
..e.s.t.ecit, would ondanEer, if not render]
defeat certain. To avoid a calamity of
this kind, every loyal man in the district
should put forth his energies to avert.
The efforts of the Administration to Crush
the rebellion and preserve the
must be supported and; strengthened by l
the election of true and lloyal men to pre
side in our National councils. Individual
ambition and local preferences must yield
to this end. Every reasenable concession
should • be' made rather. than allow our'
enemies or the on ethics of the Government
to succeed at the polls. j Should I, in any
manner be instrumental in causing the

my conscience would! condemn me.—
Hoping that harcriony ;may be restored,'
and a dandidate selected; in favor of whom
we can all unite cheerfully, I decline the'
nomination, and refer the question back
to the Conferees of tho!district.
In ,adopting this course I do not in any
manner recognize the! propriety of the
action of the TiOga delegates. Conven

EUITOR JOURNAL : I suppdso the
country at large has been looking to the
Democratic Convention at Chicago with
considemble interest. ; It is peroaps, but
Batumi that here the interest felt'should
be more intense than anywhere else.
That McClellan would be the man, was
scarcely made core certain after the result
was 050,111 y a nounded that it had been
for days bef,,re.‘ 'ThCre jis something in
the character of an that naturally
drives him to fiat party, and something
in the party tilt makes it gravitate to
wards him and his friends.
There is (appropcis this nomination)
many interesting themes for reflection.
There . are not Wanting men Who two
weeks ago confidentially asserted that Mc-
Clellan would not consent to become a
candidate for the 'Presidency in opposition
to Mr. Liacoll23 . for,' they reasoned, with
some plausobility, no one has been so fast
a friend of the little Napoleon under all
circumstances as iMr. Lincoln. She
clung to him through good . report and
evroport. Ever ready to accOrd to his
aoldevnients wore tliitn their due share of
praise, he was just as ready to excuse his
blundere, and oven hide froai the too
searching i i putilie azc his most glaring
defects. 4e. bore up nader the pressure
for his removal, long and patiently, ; 'and
the weight of that pressure was all the
more crushing from the fact that he was
standing ant- against his ownf.convictioni
elf right and the iMperative demands of
duty to the country. At last, .wheii
compelled, to remove him, he did it in the
easiest, mast friendly manner possible, and
only scat:lit:l to Trenton, when he should
have been sent to —.
- A clearer view of the character of the
man, antithe probable- nature of .his cc
itions may be had by looking farther back.
"The boiis father of the man," is a very
true saying. Given the eon - duct of the
boy you ean tell pretty nearly what the
man will 'do. Great misfortunes, severe
storms of adversity may shape, or even
change ottr course; but in the great inal•
.nases early impressions are "the
strongest'; anti give color to the whole
-11.COlellatt was unable for a long time
to assume a false position, by the force of
circumstances and the place he was galled
upon to fill. Lauded by all the papers as
a profound strategist, and aftogother un
rivaled Military genius, tot a.-time when
the watt of such a man was keenly felt,
he was invested with qualities existing in
the imagination alone, and which bear no
sort of .relation to his eharanter.• The
fabled believed in and wor
shipsd by the loyal millions of the North
Was nn :more bird the real one than a
"bawk"i is like a "handsaw." Not all
may Ita4w how dear to the heart of man
is newstiper praise, when coupled with
universal adulation it must become irre
sistibly, captivating. Those drove him
for a tie; - to assiime a position false to
hiaiself. and to accept, encourage, and
perhapSi partially reciprocate the friend
ship °Olt'. Lincoln. But, never, even ,
in the fall blaze of his glory could he for
get, ori; . to defend when when too
rudely assailed, the friendd patron. of
his mole youthful days.
When Mr: Franklin Pierce was Presi
debt Jed'_ Davis was Secretary of War.
He was the sworn friend of Geo. 3.3. , M,n-
Crellan;- then a young Captain of Cavalry,
to whoM he showed many marks of favor.
Favorites are famous for being apprecia.-
PleClellan became the fast friend
and dOoted admirer of Davis.
There was a time when a portion of the
army oOnsidercd Davis a renenclo, traitor
and scallewag generally, and so expressed
thenaselves. Ilcpa.atully Las McClellan
come t'p the rescue of his old friend and
proved his devotion by correcting the
misamirchen6iOn, invariably assuring his
officel - 0 and men that the arch Eche] was
a "perfect gentleman and a very worthy,
That the Democratic nominee is the
friends of_the Southern President, no one
-1 prehime doebta. 7 never saw any sign
of lrigjlaearing that President's cause any
enmity, of a seriotz-nature.
But whatever be the character of this
he is! the Democratic nomince for the
high* office in the gift of the American
peopl. At this time we can ill afford to
trifie All truly loyal men have a work
I before them---a work, f.reater
tban, l ol ore aware of, Thomrh the dee
' tion is. within our reach it is_by do means
sure. It must be worked for, and now is
the time to work.

La 60 • man underrate his eueth' y.
shalhhave the draft, the tattes, the arrests,
the e . s..penditures, the high pi.cos, every
thing to contend with, to say nothing of
the 141 ind. prrjudieos of many otherwise
worthy men- There are merry,. short
sighocl. people N:lio look upon ehaal.z. , es as
benoileial ; but they are not, always so.
Tfic times °call for earnest i faithful
labo6 and large self denial: Personal
or dislikes must be laid aside The
issue is as broad as humanity itself. There
is no truth in the warlike pretensions of
tbe:Vhimig,o platform. All the' war they
intend to wage is a perpetuakiar against
iinnian liberty, and the enlightened spirit
of t the age. The only Union they desire,
is a?uniOn with the South 'in 'which the
latter shall bo the ruling power.
Very truly, , NEWT.
COrPERMAD TACTICS.—We trust that
tbelintelligent, loyal people of the country
have, before this, learned that the greatest
danger that menaces us to-day is not a
possible failure before Richmond, not an
overthrow at Atlanta, not a raid into
Maryland, not even the establishment of
Sorithern indepcndeace, but a hopeless
political demoralization of the people, and
an t excitement of bad blood between polit:
ical parties through• the inachinntions of
traitors living North of Mason's and Dix:
on',B line. There is no depth of infamy
to ,which. these traitors will not dive, if,
by:diving, they have a chance s of bringing
up their pearl of poliical success. Fraud,
violence so far as violence may be safe,
intrigue, falsehood, appeal to the grossest
p4sions of the mob, dissemination of the
fear of want—all these will he resorted
to; and our political systemis to stand
the severest test to' which it has ever
been subjected. Just now the favorite
string to play r on is that of class interest
arid prejudices. New England is to be
made responsible for the 117ar, is to get
rich by the war at the expense hf the
poor elsewhere ' 'and Novi England princi
ples and. New England patriotism are to
he made odious by association with these
falsehoods. We shall have the rest soon
enough. First the hoofs, then the tail,
then the full horns above the tail.—

A Harper's Ferry correspondent of the.
Ar. Y. Times, says : As Sas said recent
ly by your corespondent with the army of
the Potomac, one feels in a pnrcr and
freer c t pnospliere, out here, among the
blue-'cloated and travel stained soldiers of,
Union. Here you miss the hated hiss of
the copperhead, and feel rejoiced 'to hear
instead the hopeful and hearty sentiments]
daily and hourly uttered by this portion of!
our glorious army No one in diesel
camps not even the little drummer boys
have a particleof doubt as -egards' the.
Union cause, and can apareely imagine a
worse fate for.the vile and heartless men
ivho so strenuously urge peace rocasures,l
upon the people, than to compel thorn to
show their heads in the army. Could the
soldiers have their way, Copporheadisin
would soon .vanish and the elections this
fall will show how vast and weighty is
the influence of the army in the great
question of the day.' People may sneer as
they will about the soldiers' vote, and say
that they cannot vote, as they like, but as
their,ollicers dictate. Tell your readers
that although a soldiers is aor,oXomed to
implicit obedience and the srictest disci
pline, yet in matters not military he is
not the man to allow others to dictate to
him his line of conduct. But either way
it makes no inate:ial difference in the
grand result. Both officers and-Men arc
united on the one great question of carry
ing on the war to a successful termination
for they have too often faced the enemy,
and lost.too many comrades by the casual
ties of war, to think now, oven for a
'moment, of a compromise or any other
ending of the war save that of the uncoil.
ditionat submission of the rebel States.
GEN. BUTLE2, TO MS PRISONMIS.-
Gen. Butler has a way of stating the
matter of exchange to rebel, prisoners
which is beginning to runove the scales
from their eyes. "I think you're a pret
ty likely, intelligent young man, Sir, and
will therefore tell you- that I don't think
you will be exchanged." "Why not,
General F"- "Becauso your authorities
reuse to io.cogniize ray colored soldiers as
soldiers. I should be perfectly willing
to give you for the meanest colored sol
dier they have got; but jeffDavis thinks
the negroes of snore consequence than
you, and refuses to es.ehango them."
This point generaly brings the gentlemen
to terms, and they arc ini favor of recog
nizing negroes as soldiers.
