Southern Poar.—The Richmond Enquirer,
of a late date, has a long article upon " The
Unemployed Poor" of Virginia.' It notes
the fact that every city and community has
its orphans and widows to support, and a
large debt already incurred for this par
pose--a burden which cannot be laid down
when the war closes. It estimates the
losses of Virginia already at thirty thousand
men, each of whom leates two dependent
persons or , sixty thousand in all, which is
six per cent. of the white population of the
State. In Richmond alone, there are forty
five hundred persons dependent on public
charity—these require an expenditure of
about $500,000 per annum.
The German Element in Chicago.—The
Chicago correspondent of the Boston Post
" Sunday in Chicago is not much differ
ent from Sunday in Boston.. There are
more stores open here, and you can pur
chase almost anything you want to-day as
well as you could yesterday. The horse
cars run here also, to carry people to church
or wherever they care to go. I find the
coming of the Sabbath a great relief, be
cause of the absence of that dense cloud of
smoke from steamers and manufactories
which hangs over the place all through the
secular part of the week. The churches
here are less in number than the Boston
average, and perhaps there is a greater pro
portion of the people who stay at home.
This is due, greatly, no doubt, to the Ger
man "leaven which "leavens the whole
lump" of Western society. I should not
be surprised to learn that there are more
Germans than Americans in Chicago; per
haps it is already an admitted fact that
certainly one-half the signs we see upon
the buildings display German names, and
ten German families comprise as large a
number of souls as the same number of
American. It is the Germans who do the

The two great parties into which our country
is divided, have now held their National Conven
tions, adopted their Platforms, and nominated
their respective candidates for the Presidency
and Vice Presidency. The Union National Con
vention met at Baltimore, June 7th, 1864, and
nominated Abraham Lincoln for re6lection as
President, and Andrew Johnson for Vice Presi
dent. The Democratic National Convention met
at Chioago, August 29th, 1864, and nominated
George B. McClellan for President, and George
H. Pendleton for Vice President. As matters of
public) interest we give the resolutions adopted
by the Conventions respectively, announcing the
prinoiples and policy , of these two great parties :
.A. M. Wallingford
J. P. Crawford
Resolved, That it is the highest duty of. every
American citizen to maintain against all their
enemies the integrity of the Union, and, the par
amount authority of the Constitution and laws
of the United States; and, that, laying aside all
differences of political opinions, we pledge our
selves as Union men, animated by a common
sentiment, and aiming at, a common object, to do
everything in our power 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 determination
of the Government of the United States not to
compromise with the rebels, nor to offer any
terms of peace except such as may be based up
on an " unconditional surrender" of their hos
tility, and a return to their just allegiance to the
Constitution and laws of the United States, and
that we call - upon the Government to maintain
this position, and to prosecute the war with the
Utmost possible vigor to the complete , suppression
of the rebellion ; in full reliance upon the self
sacrifice, the patriotism, the heroic valor, and
the undying devotion of the Anierican people to
their country and its free institutions:
'Resolved, That as slavery was the cause, and
now constitutes the strength of this rebellion,
and as it must be always and everywhere hos
tile to the principles of republican government,
justice and the national safety demand its utter
and complete extirpation from the soil of the re
public, and that we uphold and maintain the acts
and proclamations by which the Government in
its own defence, has aimed a death blow at this
gigantic evil. We are in favor, furthermere, of
suoh an amendment to the Constitution, to be
made by the people in conformity with its pro
visions, as shall terminate and forever prohibit
the existence of slvavery within the limits of the
jurisdiction of 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 the country, and in vindication of the
honor of the flag ;, that the nation owes to them
some permanent recognition of their patriotism
and valor, and ample and permanent provision
fot . those of their survivors who have received
disabling and honorable wounds in the service of
the country; and that the memories of those
who have fallen in-its defence shall be held in
grateful and everlasting remembrance.
Resolved, That - we approve and applaud the
practical wisdom, the unselfish patriotism, and un
swerving fidelity to the Constitution and the prin
ciples of American liberty, with which Abraham
Lincoln has discharged, under circumstances of
unparalleled difficulty, the great duties and re
sponsibilities of the Presidential office ; that we
approve and indorse, as demanded by the emer
gency and essential to the preservation of the
dation, and as within the Constitution,
' ures 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 employment as Union soldiers,
or men heretofore held in slavery; and that we
have full confidence in his determination to carry
these and all other constitutional measures es
sential to the salvation of the country, into full
and complete effect.
Resolved, That we deem it essential to the gen
eral welfare, that harmony should prevail in the
national councils, and we regard as worthy of
publio confidence and official trust those only
who cordially indorse the principles proclaimed
in these resolutions, and which should character
ize the administration of the Government.
Resolved, That the Government owes to all
men employed in its armies, without regard to
distinction of color, the full . protection of the
laws of war, and that any violation of these
laws or of the usages of civilized nations in
time of war by the rebels now in arms, should
be made the subject of full and prompt redress.
Resolved, That the' foreign immigration which
in the past has added so mueh to the Wealth and
development of resources and increase of power
this nation, the asylum of the oppressed of all
raions, should be fostered and encouraged by a
liberal and just policy. ,
Resolved, That we are in favor of the speedy
construction of the railroad to.the Pacific.
Resolved, That the national faith, pledged for
the redemption of the public debt, must be kept
inviolate ; -and that for this purpose we rectom
mend economy and rigid responsibility in the

publio expenditure and a vigorous and just sys
tem of taxation ; that it is the duty of every
loyal State to sustain the credit and promote the
use of the national currency.
Resolved, That we approve the position taken
by the Government that the people of the United
States have never regarded with indifference the
al t :rapt of any European Power to overthrow by
force, or to supplant by fraud, the institutions of
any republican government on the Western Con
tinent, and that they view with extremejealonsy,
as menacing to the peace and independence of
this our country, the efforts of any such Power
to obtain new footholds for monarchical govern
ments, sustained by a foreign military force, in
near proximity to the United States.
Tile CHICAGO PLATFORM
Resolved, That in the future, as in the past,
we will adhere with unswerving fidelity to the
Union under the Constitution as the only solid
foundation of our strength, security and happi
ness as a people, and as a framework of govern
ment equally conducive to the welfare and pros
perity of all the States; both Northern and South
Resolved, That this Convention does explicitly
deolare, as the sense of the American people,
that after four years of failure to restore the
Union by the experiment of war, during which,
under the pretence of a military necessity or war
power higher than the Constitution, the Constitu
tion itself has been disregarded in every part,
and public liberty and private right alike trod
den down, and the material prosperity of the
country essentially impaired, justice, humanity,
liberty, and the public welfare, demand that im
mediate efforts be male for a cessation of hostil
ities, with a view to an ultimate Convention of
all the States, or other peaceable means, to the
end that at the earliest practicable moment peace
may be restored on the basis of the Federal
Union of the States.
Resolved, That the direct: interference of the
military authority of the. United. States in the re
cent elections held in Kentucky, Maryland, Mis
souri and Delawbre, was a shameful violation of
the Constitution, and the repetition of such acts
in the approaching election will be held as revo
lutionary, and resisted with all the means and
power under our control.
Resolved, That the aim and object of the Dem
ocratic party. is to preserve the Federal Union
and the rights of the States unimpaired;,and
they hereby declare that they consider the Ad
ministrative usurpation of extraordinary and
dangerous powers not granted by the Constitu
tion, the subversion of the civil by military law
in States not, in insurrection, the arbitrary mili
tary arrest, imprisonment, trial and sentence of
American citizens in States. where civil law
exists in full force, the suppression of freedom of
speech and of the press, the denial of the right of
asylum, the open and avowed disregard of State
rights, the employment of unusual test•oaths, and
the interference with and denial of the right of
the people to bear arms, as calculated to prevent
a restoration of•the Union and the perpetuation
of a government deriving its just nowere from
the consent of the governed.
Resolved, That the shameful disregard of the•
Administration to its duty in respect to our fel
low-citizens-who are now and long have been
prisoners of war in a suffering condition, de
serves the severest, reprobation, on the score
alike of public interest and common humanity.
Resolved, That the sympathy of the Democratic
party is heartily and earnestly extended to the
soldiery of our army, who are and have been in
the field under the flag of our country ; and, in
the event of our obtaining power, they will re
ceive all the care and protection, regard and
kindness, that the bravee - soldiers of the Republic
have so nobly earned. •

The War.—The centre of greatest interest
during the past week has been Atlanta, intelli
gence of the capture of which by Gen. Sherman
has been reported through both Union and rebel
sources of information. As yet we are without
the details of this most important and auspicious
event, of which, however, no doUbt is entertain
ed. Secretary Stanton officially announces that
intelligence has been received at the War De
partment that Gen. Sherman's advance entered
Atlanta about noon on Friday, Sept. 2d. Major
Gen. Slocum dispatches that " Sherman has ta
ken Atlanta: the 20th corps occupies the city;
the main army is on the Macon road, near East
a battle was fought near that point, in
which Gen. Sherman was successful." An un
official report states that the rebel army was cut
in two near East Point, with very heavy loss to
the enemy ; Gen. Hardee was killed; our loss
Gen. Grant telegraphs that on Friday evening,_
before the dispatches announcing the capture of
Atlanta. had been received in the Union army,
the 'rebel pickets-had shouted over to our men
that Sherman had whipped Hood, and that our
troops were in Atlanta.
The South-Western telegraphio line being
down from the effects of a heavy storm, and al
so having been brokealty Wheeler's. rebel caval
ry in some places, no later interi.genoe has been
received. The damage done to the railroad by
the rebel raiders will be speedily repaired, Wheel
er having retreated, and Goa. Rosseau being in
active pursuit. In an engagement with Wheel
er, L rebel Gen. Kelley was mortally wounded
and is in our hands.
• It is believed in official circles that the im
portance of Sherman's: success is not yet fully
developed, that he , not only occupies Atlanta,
but has inflicted crwibing defeat upon llood'a
army, and now occupies East Point, the strong
hold in the tear of Atlanta, to whieh' it. was sup
posed Hoot} would retreat if compelled to evacu
ate the city. But for reliable intelligence we
must..await the arrivid of official details.
Gen. Canby's offioial report of the capture of
Fort Morgan has been received. It appears that
Admiral Farragut and Gen. Granger so arranged
their vessels and hattelies as to invest the Fort
anothree sides, and to envelop it with such a ter
rible raking fire that the guns of the fort could
not be worked. The rebels stood the fire for ten
or twelve hours, and then surrendered uncondi
tionally. The prisoners numbered six hundred,
including Brig. Gen. Paige and two Colonels.
Sixty guns were takenin the fort, and also much
material, though the rebels had destroyed con
siderable, and had spiked the guns. Our loss
was but one man killed and seven wounded.
The enthusiasm of the sailors at this new suc
cess of Farragut is said to be indescribable.
The bombardment. of Fort Morgan is described
by eye-witnesses as having been terrific. The
bursting of heavy shells in and over the fort was
constant, averaging about one per minute. The
captured ram, Tennessee, did good service in this
action. It does not appear that the rebels had
any hope of being able to resist the attack of
our forces. Admiral. Farragut comments se
verely, in his efficial dispatches, upon the con
duct of Gen. Paige. Ile says;
"The whole condurt of the officers of Forts
Gaines and Morgan presents such a striking
contrast in moral principle, that I cannot fail to
remark upon it. Colonel Anderson, who com
manded the former, fiuding himself, in a per
fectly untenable position, and encumbered with
a superfluous number of conscripts, many of
whom were boys, determined to surrender a fort
which he could not defend. In this determine.-
tiOn he was supported by all the officers save
one. But from the moment he hoisted the white
flag, he scrupulously kept everything intact, and
iu that condition delivered it over ; whilst Paige
and his officers, with a childish spite, destroyed
the guns whieh they said they would defend to
the last, but which they never defended at all,
and t4 i rew away or broke those weapons which.
they had not the manliness to use against their
o temies, for• Fort Morgan never fired a gun
alter the commencement of the bombardmfint."
An officer recently from the field of operations
describes the prospect of the early capture of
Mobile as extrentely,eucouraging: The confi
dence of the officers of the naval and laud
forces is complete. It is asserted as the opinion
of persons who are best qualified to . judge, that
the capture of the city is just as feasible as the
capture of Fort Morgan. The certainty of that
result is not questioned, and it is held that we
may hear of the fall of Mobile much sooner than
we have been accustomed to expect it. It is un
derstood that the rebel land force at Mobile is
From the. Army of the Potomac nothing of
importance has been received. Our troops on
the Weldon road have been constantly strength
ening their position until, in the opinion of our
military authorities, - it is now impregnable to the
assault of any force the rebels can bring against"
it. Small garrisons have been posted on the left
bank of the James River, to guard against
rambling rebel batteries, who fire on our trans
One hundred thousand new troops this Fall,
promptly furnished, in all, says Secretary Stan
ton, that Gen. Grant asks for the capture of
Richmond, and to give n finishing blow to the
rebel armies yet in the field.
.From. Gen. Sheridan's army we have intelli
gence of a fight which occurred on Wednesday,
Aug. 31. We attacked the enemy's outposts,
near Martinsburg, planting our shells among the
rebels with much precision. Heavy skirmishing
ensued, the enemy pushing forward strewg col
umns, and ineffectflank ually attempting to us.
Our forces fell back, or rather drew the rebels
on some miles from Martinsburg toward Falling
Waters, when there was a lull in the contest.
The hostilelines remained in close proximity
until Saturday, Sept. 3, when Gen. Averill's di
vision of cavalry attacked 'the enemy a short
distance south' of Martinsburg, rapidly follow
ing him. We captured two battle flags, many
prisoners, nearly all of one train of wagons, a
herd of cattle, and by 4 P. M. came upon
Rhodes's division of rebel infantry and engaged
it. Our loss was light. We went to within six
miles of Winchester.
LA.TEST.—Gen. Sherman's official report of the
capture of Atlanta has been received. Our army
withdrew from about Atlanta, Aug. 80, made a
break on the East Point road, and readhed a
good position from which to strike the Macon
road. Howard, on our right, found the enemy
in force at Jonesboro', and intrenched himself.
The enemy attacked him, and were easily re
pulsed. Our left and centre advanced rapidly,
made a good lodgment on the road, and broke it
all the way from Rough and Ready to Howard's
left, near Jonesboro'. This interposed Sher
man's whole army between Atlanta and the rebel
force in Jonesboro'. On Sept. 1, we made a
general attack on the enemy at Jonesboro', car
ried their works, taking_lo guns and aboutl,o,o

line of supply in our posseseion, and his army
cut in two, blew up the magazine in Atlanta,
destroyed 7 locomotives, and 81 cars loaded with
ammunition, small arms, and stores, left 14
pieces artillery, mostly uninjured, and retreated
in the night. Gen. Slocum took possession on
the 3d Sept. and so, says Gen. Sherman, " At
lanta is ours, and fairly won." Our loss will
not exceed 1200. The rebels lose over 300 killed,
200 wounded, and over 16.000 prisoners. Our
men need rest, having been in one constant bat
tle or skirmish since the 6th•of May.
From Gen. Sheridan we have the details of
Saturday's battle, September 3. Our loss was
300 killed and wounded: that of the enemy is at
least 1,000 greater. We took 500 prisoners.
General —The Richmond papers of Sept. 2d,
contain along letter from Commissioner Ould to
the people of the Confederate States, in which
be recites the history of the exchange question.
On the 10th of August he addressed .a letter to
Major Mulford, the U. S. Commissioner, propo
sing now to accept a proposition heretofore re
peatedly made by the U. States, to exchange
man for man, only suggesting that those longest
in captivity should be exchanged first.. On the
20th of August, Major-Mulford had not been in
structed by hie Government what answer to
make. On the 22d Major Ould wrote Co General
Hitchcock, at Washington, and on the 31st no
reply had been received. Here the correspon
dence closes, and Major Ould makes it public to
show that the Confaierate Government had
spared no efforts to relieve the sufferings of-pris
oners on both sides. It is to be hoped that ex
changes on equitable terms may be speedily re
Secretary Stanton states in an official bulletin
that it has been ascertained with reasonable car

Foreign.—The most. important. item of foreign
news is the capture of the rebel pirate steamer
Georgia, about twenty miles from Lisbon, by the
U. S. frigate Niagara, which put a prize crew on
board and sent the pirate vessel to New-York,
but paroled its captain and crew, and landed
them at Dover. At the time of the capture, the
pirate was sailing under the British flag, and for
this reason its captain entered his protest against
the seizure. The event is said to have created
The difficulties arising out, of the Dano-German
War have not yet subsided. The minor States
of Germany are justly indignant at the grasp
ing ambition of Prussia, which is endeavoring
to reap for herself exclusively the advantages of
the victory over Denmark. Von Bismark, the
Prussian Minister, has obtained from the Duchies
of Schleswig-Holstein a unanimous vote that "a
close union with the Prussian monarchy can

country, it was supposed for the United States.
The French now occupy Saltillo, lately the seat
of Juarez' government. Maximilian is pursuing
a conciliatory course. He has forbidden the
newspapers to abuite the Mexicans who still hold
out against him.
The Approaching Draft,—Unusual activity
has been manifested during the Wit few days 'in
the various sub-districts in filling up their
quotas. So many recruits have been already se
cured, and so many seem 'willing still to volun

yet definitely known at what time the draft will
take place, as some days must elapse before the
credits obtained can be entered +3p, •and the
requisite machinery be set to work.
A Deserving Estabiishment.—Mr. Marvin,
on Fourth Street between Market and Wood, has
established one of the finest bakeries in the
West. His bread and crackers of every variety
—water, sugar, and soda biscuit., ginger snaps,
&c.—are of the most excellent quality. They
are always fresh and always good. His trade is
already very large, and is constantly increasing.
Teachers' Institute.—The Teachers' Institute
of Allegheny County held an interesting meeting
at Sewickley last week, extending through three
days and evenings. The subject of the estab

Allegheny, Butler, and Beaver, was discussed at
considerable length, and Sewickley was recom
mended as a suitable location.

THOMAS WILSON.—Why the prover)), "Death
loves - a shining mark," but that the subtle archer
aims his fatal shaft at the most winning member
of the family first? The adage is sadly verified
in the case of Mr. Thomas Wilson, fourth son of
Mr. James Wilson, of Fayette County, Pa., who
died August 4th, of typhoid pneumonia, in the
24th year of his age. Patience and submission
to the Divine will characterized' the scene.
Asked by his beloved mother if be suffered
much, be replied,
" Jesus can make a dying bed . , _
Feel soft. as downy pillows are."
Asked by a beloved aunt whether he wished to
live, he replied, "If it be the Lord's will; but
chiefly that I might unite with the Church and
honor my Saviour." He often said that " all his
trust was in Jesus Christ." Engaged in prayer,
he would fervently say,
" Here, Lord; I give myself awriy,
'T is all that I can 'do ;" ' • -
and a sweet smile of serenity would irradiate
his face. He took his brothers, sister, an 4 cou
sns,,one•by one, telling them he was going „to
die, and bidding them an affectionate farewell,
he charged them to meet him in heaven. So did
he other friends. He made special inquiry for a
beloved uncle, not then present, and said if he
could see him 'he would then be ready to, go.
When his uncle came, he appeared grateful that
his life was spared to see him, and said, " You
have been a good uncle to me: Fnrewell. I
want you to meet me in heaven." His mother
read to him that excellent little book, " Come to
Jesus," in which he felt a deep interest.. He
said, to his pastor,' "I would like to talk with
you about salvation, if I were able. lam sorry
I did not unite with the church." His seat was
seldom vacant in the sanctuary. He was re
markable for his upright and honorable deport
ment, yet confessed himself a sinner, but trust
ing in Christ for pardon and, sali4tion. One
who knew him well, says of Ms death, "The
church and pastor have lost a devoted frieud."
But he is gone, we trust, to the great Shep
herd and Bishop .of souls. Ours is the duty of
submission to Him who " doeth all things well."
