SEPTEMBER 20, 1654. THE SEWS, Sheridan and hie gallant troopers have clos ed the week with a galaxy of victories, and .Bunker Hill, Straslmrg and Fisher’.* Gill will he pleasant Sunday reading for Jeff. Davis to-day, and contain eome significant hints for the little Mackerel of“Ncw Jersey. Early’s army is among the things that were, and panic-stricken ia fleeing through the.valley] every men making thchest time to Richmond ?•*« Culpepper and Gordonsville, leaving Lynchburg at Sheridan’s mercy.. As Torbett has gone down into the Luray Valley, in Early!* rear, It is possible that he may give the Ingltive prey backs the coup degran. Fif teen battle flags, twenty-six cannon, one hundred and Jour officers captured, and pri vatcshytbc thousand, arc hat a portion of the crop harvested by little gallant PUL Re inforcements are hurrying to Sheridan and the rent may yet prove only the immediate predecessor of annihilation. Richmond is now seriously menaced. Lynchburg is vir tually onrs. Lee can not sp-re an army large enough to • offer any serious opposition to Sheridan's resistless march. The silence be low Richmond is ominous. It will soon be broken by the thunders of the Lieutenant General The rotten hulk of slavery and des potism is crumbling to its ruin. If it be true, as would seem from the statement of the Richmond papers, that Sherman Is negotiating with Gov. Brown, Alex. H. Stephens and Herschell V. Johnson t of Georgia, for the return of that State to the Union, it I* a striking commentary on the Confederate and Copperhead doctrine of the light of secession. Georgia, by virtue of her assumed State sovereignty, seceded fromlhe Union, and now, after being pretty well thrashed by Gen. Sherman, and dread, ing further now proposes-to secede from the Confederacy back Into the Union. If Georgia should take this step, it ought to convince the mostlncorlrgiblejCop. perhead that a government which recognizes the State sovereignty doctrine is no govern men£ at all. The Richmond papers are ter ribly alarmed at the report that the authori ties of Georgia are negotiating with General Sherman for a return to the Union. The right of secession conferred by State sov ereignty is now the special honor of the Richmond rebels. B*ys Xht Enquirer: “If “a State make peace on her own account, <‘ebe withdraws from the Confederacy. «• Georgia was one of the first to secede. Is “she now going to leave her seceded sisters “ the beg to hold, after having j»ot them Into “this scrape? Will she abandonVlrgmla “after having dragged her Into this war? 1 * There is a big scare in Richmond. Georgia is the empire State of the South, The telegraph and mail together bring the pleasing intelligence that Montgomery Blair has accepted the President’s request to re. sign and has evacuated the office hf Post, master-General, 'The loyal portion of the ' country will shed no tears over this resigna tion. Mr. Blair would have pleased the Unionists hugely had he resigned a year ago. The President should have removed him the next day after making his pro-slavery Eock vllle speech. Be has been an cy c-sorc to Re publicans ever since. The Baltimore Con vention gave the President a strong hlafthat they desired him to find a successor for Mr. Blair without delay. But bettor late than never. It is reported that the office has been offered to Gov. Dennison, of Ohio, and de clined. Colfax is the man who ought to have It, but he-cannot be well spared from Con gcees. There ore two or three other mem bers whose resignations would promote the public, service. Gold'is on the down rushing with the velocity of lightning, and the brakes won’t work. Sheridan’s bold riders are be hind pushing it along. Belmont, the engi neer, cant make the throttle, play, and Is looking out of the cab window for a soft spot. McClellan has got one foot on the platform and one on the bumpers. The pas geDgere—hulls, hears, lame ducks and specu lators—are wringing their hands* in despair, hut still the train goes on, Belmont furiously whistling down brakes that won’t down, as the bfekemnn went off the side of the track long ago. The bottom is not for off, and somebody will get hurt In thqjmosh-np. In Jn the meantime, as gold goes down, loyalty goes up? and while Copperheads and Bel mont! lee arc bemoaning and tearing their hair, Union men are rejoicing, for they know that as the gold end of the scale falls, the Union scale rircs. Gold is being swept out of the way ; the Ides of November will wit- , ness the exit of Copperheads, and then lock out rebels. The beginning of the end ap- 1 proaches. The gold figures are 212,200 and | 201, closing at the latter figure. All the markets were else panic-stricken on Satur day. Wheat dOßedloalSc.lowcr, comic., Sour 25c., oats J£c., rye 4 asc., barley sc. and butter sc. Another instance of the close application between Copperheads and rebels Is afforded ' in the capture of Keytesville, a town In Mis souri, by the notorious guerilla ThrailkUi and fats gang of cut-throats. Union men were murdered and their property horned while Copperheads were let go scot free and feted by the bushwhackers. What sensible man needs any mere convincing argument of the understanding betwcen'lhe-two ? The foreign news represents a. decline of per. cent in -rebel securities abroad. 'Tbe crash in the goW market here will he re produced in the crash of the rebel security market in London and upon the Bourse os the receipt of Sheridan's -victories. It will be a matter for proportionate congratulation to the alow hut sure Germans, who have of late Invested so largely in United States securities. rWe arc advised that a terrible tornado' *wcpl through Coles county, in this State, on Friday last, tearing down fences and •barns and unroofing bouses, but have re olvedco details. .The week just-closed has, in a commercial point of view, been a most eventful one.

I pursued on after tne enemy during tbe nlcbt to this point, with tbe t tband i9tb corps, and have stopped here to rest tbe men and issue rations. If Gen. Torbett has pushed down the Luray Val ley, according to my directions, he will achieve great results. Ido not think that there ever was an army so badly rooted.

There is great rejoicing over Sheridan's vie-, lories, and Copperheads are gloomy. There is ' also a panic among the holders of gold. A'report at headquarters says Price crossed the Arkansas Btvcx with twenty-six thousand men— cavalry, artillery and infantry, lie has an ad vance ctflnmn penetrating southwest and south east simultaneously—one under Cooper, the other under Shelby. Cooper's forces captured, the im mense wagon train bound fromFortScott to Fort Smith, and burned nearly ail tbe wagons, be cause the guard could not he spared to take them South, ana horees were wanted.* Five honored men, soldiers and teamatere were captured with It The whole aflalr was a surprise. Price Is said to have received 2,000 recruits from north of Mis-' sour! River lately. Panics from Lebanon, Mo., reports 300 rebels passed northward, a few miles west of that pluce, on Toesdsynight, supposed to be areconnoitcring party to get Information for Price. Kcytesvlile, the county scat of Chariton county, | -a secession place, was captured by ThrsiltiUs guerillas on Wednesday, the Paw Paw militia or ganized by the local Committee of Safety, under Order No. 107, Barrendering without firing a shot.

Bet el! of the Union men at Keytesville were not lucky enough to es cane. BobertCa-mon and Wm.Young werefonnd and killed. The former was Sheriff or the county, I and tbe latter had been noted as aUnion scour and ; spy. Both were over sixty years of age Setting fire to the Court Bouse, containing most of the county records, Thrsilklll retired from the town without molestation. . , x , . On Saturday night last the militia started out from Lexington. Mo., in search of a camp of buah wbacfceie, about four miles from Lexington, iff the neighborhood of Richmond. Mo. They were met by the enemy, and a sharp fight ensued. The rebels were deleated with a loss of six or seven killed and a few wounded. Tbe militia were fol lowing them up, and at last accounts they were close upon them. 1; is to toe hoped they will cap ture the whole party. It Is reported that one of the Provost Marshals to whom was yesterday given sixty-four "notices to appear, that he returned last evening witu the Information that cn'y three of the parties could be found, and that they were picking their trunks and would be off on the first train.

Tbe Union meeting this afleraoouhas been In progress for tbe last two hburs. In point of num bersand enthusiasm theexpccUtioufl of the Union men ol Adam* are folly met, A pec-iarity of tbe crowd Ib tbe preponderance of Totem. These are evidently earnest thinking men, not alt of whom have been accustomed io vote with ns heretofore, bat we hope that under the cogent reasonings of the distinguished speakers who have Just address* ed them, they will sec the error of their ways aod ben after be found with ns, on tbe Bide of Union and good government. If we mar judge of tbe effect of'lheee speeches by the satisfaction appar ent everywhere, and the expressions that occa sionally 'all from tbe Ups of life-long Democrats, each will be the result. Adams county 2b claimed by the dlstmlonlsts as their particu'ar domtin. but tbe indications ore that ft will be fo claimed after tbe November election. Tbe Union men axe donildenc that they wi 1 carry''Adams by from three to six hundred tua joiuv. If they will do fir less than this, if they’will reach the vote of 1800, the election of Brigadier General Harding. Union candidate for Congress from the Fourth Congressional District, is secured. The meeting was organized at two o'clock this afternoon by the choice of Hon. Ralph Unrlburt, of Qulncv, as President. Alter a song by the Lom bards,’General Hawing was introduced, aod brief ly and forcibiv presented the pending issues. -He was disposed to ignore political and partisan 'antecedents and in favor of all patriots coming up on a platform whose single plank should be love of country and a determination to uphold tbe flag end tbe Government at allhaztrds. Upon such a platform he invitedhls Democratic friend to stand with him. He made an earnest appeal in iavor of. tbe Union ticket, and showed conclusively that upon lie success rested the hopes oi the nation. Ucxeral Harding wae londiy applauded. " After Old Shady had been given, to tbe infinite dellght-of tbe audience, Hon. J. K. Doolitte, United States Senator irom Wisconsin, was in troduced. and in a clear, logical, and convincing argument ol an hour, set forth tbe claims of the great Union partv of the day upon tbe active co operation ol patriots and well-wishers of the*r country. It was a splendid effort, and produced a profoncdhnpresslon. His arguments were unan swerable and his appeal irresistible. Af.er Senator Doolittle had concluded. General Oglesby look the eland and delivered a masterly and convincing speech distinguished by the fervid and earnest eloquence wbicn characterizes all his public efforts. - He was greeted by hcartv ap plause, and frequently interrupted by the cheers and applause of the enthnriastic masses, who bong with breathless attention upon his stirring and'patriotic otUruncts. He was followed by Col. Bob. Icccrsoll, of Peoria, who made one of (he most brilliant and forcible speeches I have bad the good fortune to bear coring tbe campaign. At the conclusion of the speeches which created tbe wildcat enthusiasm.‘and elicited tbe most beany applause, Unnueeting adjourned to meet at IlirkhazDß. At eight o’dccx, this evening, Hirk barn's Hall, cue of the largest inthe'State, and capable of seating, comfortably, two thousand people, was crowded to suffocation at the opening oi tie meeting, every inch of standing room be ing occupied, and hundreds being unable to gain admission at all. After an opening song by tbe Lnmberds, the Dor. J.D. Ward gave an able ex position of the Chicago platform, exhibiting la a char light the frauds attempted by it, and in a strain ol most earnest exhortation plead for tbe came of the country, and of humanity throughout the world. He was ioterrapteo by Jreqnenl bursts of applause, and sat down amid the cheers of toe vast audience. He is doing valuable serrice.to the cause. He was followed by E. a. Storra, Esq, of Chicago, whose ability is well known to your home readers, and who is one ol the most entertaining speakers on the stomp, and one of the ablest cham pions of tbe Union cause. He Introduced himself totbe audience by reading to day’s dispatch from Gen. Sheridan, and commenting In his own inimi table style npon Gen Sheridan's manner of mak ing peace projrf'eiiloDP to the Southern Confedera cy. The vast aunf&nce sent up cheer after cheer for the gallant Sheridan and nif army, and after the excitement had subsided, Ur. Storra entered upon a profound, dear, and convincing arguaunt upon u-e war power of tbe Constitution, clearly exhibiting the folly ot the Democrats, objections to the constitutionality of Mr. Lincoln’s war mea sures. It was as exhaustive argument upon the sub ject, and listened to with the profoundest atten tion throughout. . Mr. Storrs was followed by non. o. z>. in a most humorous bat lotacal “train, woo kept tne iro ad until about n o'crock, when tbe meeting ad journed, with three times three for tbe Union arid •tbe Union candidates, and three more on general principles. Tbe meeting as a whole bae been a most enthu siastic one, and cannot fall to do znach good in this Democratic district. It is utterly impossible to convey to yon even a tolerable idea oi tbe deep and earnest feeling manifested throughout tbe State wherever we have held mass meetings, nor of the determina tion of tbe people to stmd up boldly and uaflluch irglvfortbc Ilmen in tbe coming election. No threats can intimidate, no promise attract those patriotic men from the one object and aim which eecme to animate every heart. You mav safely announce to your readers in Southern Illinois that the North and Middle are sound and Icjal to the core. Let our friends every where be .of good cheer.

From Grant's Army. lleax>quaetbhs Akmt of the Potomac, Friday, Sept. S3, via W abutnqton.—Several casualtlea'cc enrred to-day from picket firin'* in front of the Cd division of the 2d army corps. Private Farnsworth was killed oy being shot in the eye, while looking over the works at some shelling going on near by. This pratfUcfijof continual ?harp»hoo:lcg between toe pickets ishonld be discountenanced by every commander on both sides, as 'it causes the loss of many a brave man’s life, without the slightest ad vantage to any parly. New Yoke, Sept. 25.—An army correspondent of the Jltrald states that the rebels changed their troops in front of our lines in'consequence of heavy deseitlons. The shotted salute of the 22d pretty effectually used op the rebel Spring Hill battery, and Peters bare most have snnerod severely from the effect of dropping three shells a minute for thirty min utes. Tac rebels hardly responded. Hie War 2n IVlissonrl. St. Louis, Sunday, Sept. 25.—Joe Shelby’s rebel cavalry, said to be' lour or five thousand strong, occupied Frederickstown, twenty miles east of Pilot Knob, yesterday. Shelby's design is not yet developed. Gen. Ewing, Commandant of the District of Sr. Louis, took a brigade of Gen. A. J. Smith’s troops down last night. Disastrous Fire. New York, Sunday, Sept 25.—The Brooklyn White Lead worse, Water street, in that cliy, burned this afternoon, involving a loss of $ 100,000. partly insured. The fire, it is supposed, was caused by spontaneous combustion. The Homan Catholic cbarcb, comer of York and Jay streets, was fired by emoers and somewhat damaged. It was mil at the time bat none were injured. Later from Bnrope. Nstv Tons, Sunday, Sept. 25.—The North American haa arrived. The TUnee says: Never since the war began baa there been sneb a display of vigor and energy on both-aldes, as battle aucceeda battle, with frightful rapidity. The conflicts arc long and bloody, the victories titQiog ai,(l Indecisive. - The most Important part of the news relates to the Chicago Convention. Lincoln and hta policy have received a heavy chect, that .Convention choosing McClellan, the man whom Lincoln en deavored to- keep down, the man most, able to correct hla errors, and arrest the rulujrialnly im pending over the great Republic. It will be ob served that the Convention speaks of the preser vation of the Onion aa the principal object, bat ‘ this declaration would have had more weight if tbe Contention had stated what coarse it would recommeml-in case conciliation and compro mise, which it advise?, should tall. The Afar thinks tbe Federal success at Atlanta and Mobile will finally stimulate the war feeling in the North. The London Poet thinks aa McClellan has been distinguished by “moderation, if he is installed President, unfettered by pledges, be wonld assent to the arrangement for pence. The Time* says: Tbe Southern leaders seem to be much inclined to listen to compromise. before their military strength is entirely broken. In this view they wonld be reconciled to treat with Me- Clejlan rather than Lincoln, bat tbe Northern peo ple will see less cause for change when Lincoln's administration brings success. Tbe Daily fietrs says: In prescncfrof the great movements in. the fie;d, the proceedings of the I Chicago Convection are of much lesa importance I than otherwise might be. McClellan’s platform la I friendly to the Union, with efforts fur its pacific re-establishment. In point of fidelity the Demo crats cannot compare with, the Republicans, while nothing could be weaker than vatme aspirations alter peace on no basis, which tbe South -haa re peatedly declared it will never under any dream stances recognize. France.—The Momimr says the cotton crista is well nigh passed, and that Ceylon, Algeria, Guyana and tbe West Indies will Boon-produce cotton for I France.
