THE EVENING STAB. W. D. WALLACH, Editor and Proprietor. WASHINGTON OITT s mnwBit.:../. jume 9, ibs4. ITUiDINO MAITIR ON 1VKRY PAG1 BIS 0UT8ID1 fOK INTERESTING T1LJ &RAPHIO AND OTHER MATTIX. LINCOLN AND JOHNSON. The sincere friends of the Union Will every where feel encouraged and inspirited by the sagacious and harmonious action of the Balti more Convention on yesterday, and its enemies will feel correspondingly disheartened. tm. work of the Convention was bat the ratileatiov of the wishes of the people of the country, expressed with snch remarkable unanimity and enthusiasm North, and South, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Since the day* of Washington no such spontaneous tes timony has been given to the integrity, honesty, amd ability of a Chief Magistrate as in this en thusiastic endorsement of Abraham Lincoln by the people of the United State*. The enemies of the Union have foudly hoped that some more unscrupulous, or radical, or crotchety candidate would be put in nomina tion by the Union men, who might be either defeated in November by the "conglomerate democracy," or who, ir elected, wonld, by cranky statesmanship or reckless parttzanship, speedily lose the public confidence, and in volve the Union cause in hopeless rain. But all that has been averted by the renominatlon of the man in whom the people have an unal terable faith. The hopes of the malignant* have been blasted, also, quite as effectually as regards the nomination of a candidate for Vice President The name of Andrew Johnson is a tower of strength, and we think it would be impossible to present two names for the re spective positions having a stronger hold on the affections, and in the confidence of the peo ple of tlie country than Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. The man who, with more than Jacksonian courage, stood ap in the Senate of the United States and denounced secession and the seces sionists, saying to them, as he pointed his finger in the direction of Jeff. Davis, ?If I were the President, I wonld arrest you as traitors, try you as traitors, and hang you as traitors /" is the man for the popular heart. The ticket is one that will rally all loyal men to its support with an enthusiasm of which that which greeted its announcement in the Convention is but the faintest premonition. ARRIVAL OF WOUNDED. The State of Maine reached here yesterday morning from the White House. She had on board about six hundred wounded, including thirty-eight officers. It is understood at the wharf that in future mo wounded will be sent here on any boats ex cept those fitted up with hospital accommo dations; consequently the arrival of boats with wounded will not be so numerous as heretofore. The steamer Monohonoett arrived with about 375 wounded, from the Whtts Houoe, which she left at three o'clock yesterday afternoon. These men were mostly from the 6th corps, and were in charge of Surgeons O'Farrell and C. Wiiey. RSOBPTION BY PBBSIDBNT LINCOLN OP Dblboatbsto thi latb Baltimobb Cos vbntion.?At an early hour this morning quite a number of Delegates to the late Balti more Convention began to assemble at the White House for the purpose of paying their Teapect to President Lincoln, and the New Jersey delegation having called in a body, the President signified his willingness to meet that delegation and others at 11 o'clock in the East Room. Before the hour designated about one hun dred of the delegates had assembled there? ffew Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Mary land, and other States being represented. At ten minutes past eleven the President entered (he East Room, escorted by Oov. Newell, of New Jersey, and took a position in the centre of the room. The delegates then approached one by one, and were presented to the Presi dent by Oov. N. There was no speech making, but many congratulatory remarks passed be tween the President and his visitors. Thsre were many ladles and gentlemen (not connected with the convention) present, who were also cordially received by President Lin coln. THE DRAFT. Proposed Repeal of the #300 Exemption Clause?Message from the President and the War Department. The following was laid by the Speakef be fore the House yesterday, and referred to the C'ommitte on Military Affairs: To the men aft and House of Bepresentatires.?I have the honor to submit for the consideration of Congress a letter and in closure from the Secretary of War, with my concurrence in the recommendation therein made. (Signed) Abiuhak Lincoln. Washington, D. C., J uuestli, 1*64. Wab Dbpaetmbnt, Washington Citv, June7th, 1864.? To the President?Sir:?I beg leave to t>ubmit to you a report made to m?* by the Provost Marshal-General, showing the re sult of the draft now going on to fill the va cancy in the quotas of certain States, and re commending a repeal of the clause in the en rollment act. commonly known as the "three hundred dollar clause." The recommendation of the Provost Marshal-General is approved by this Department, and I trust that it will be recommended by you to Congress. The recent successes that have attended onr arms lead to the hope that by maintaining our military strength, and giving it snch increase as the extended field of operations may re quire, an early termination of the war may be attained, but to accomplish this it is absolute ly necessary that efficient means be taken with vigor and promptness to keep the army up to its strength, and supply the deficiencies occa sioned by the losses sustained in the field. To that end resort must be had to a draft, but ample experience has now shown that the pe culiar exemption from service frustrates the object of the Enrollment law, by furnishing money instead of men. An additional reason for repealing the three hundred dollar clanse is, that it is contem plated to make the draft for a comparatively short term. The burden of military service will, therefore, be lightened, bat the certainty of furnishing troops is an absolute essential to success. I have the honor to be your obedient servant, E. A. Stanton, Secretary of War. 07" In Switzerland, with an area of aboat half that of the State of South Carolina, but with a population nearly equal to that of Penn sylvania, there are now published 345 news papers. whereof 135 are political, 22 scientific and literary, 20 religious, (15 Protestant and 5 Catholic,) 10 agricultural, etc. 250 are pub lished in the German language, 103 in the French, 6 in the Italian, and 3 in the Romaic. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. LATE REBEL REPORTS. 1 Correspondence of the Associated Press.] HBAtH^rABTBr.-', June 7^-The Richmond Sentinel of June 3 announces the arrival of ?JO prisoners on Friday last at Lihby prison. I' calls them an uncivilized and barbarous -ma??. Ac. It says that on Friday fourteen as sinlte were made by Gen. Grant on the right of their line, held by Kershaw, Hoke, and Breckinridge, all of which were repulsed with gr?at slaughter of the assailants, their own men et?captnz almost unharmed. The ac knowledgment is made that we gained a par tial succcess against Breckinridge, but that ihey recovered the ground. Our loss. It states, mast have been very heavy, and puts it at tea or twelve thousand in this engagement, and ^ays that they took one thousand prisoners. The Sentinel further remarks that Gen. Grant's object was to gain the Btrong positions around Oaines' Mills, and open the road to Bottom Bridge, and connect with Gen. Butler; but that his object has been signally and disastrously ds tea ted. , It winds np the article as follows?in short, yesterday was a busy day for us, and a dark one tor Grant.' We have lost no ground on onr right; we have gained largely on our left, and we have taken nearly two thousand prisoners.

Among the different inventions originated and perfected by American ingenuity during the past twenty yeara, few are more surprising than the improvement in musical instruments, especially in reed inatruments, known ns "REED ORGANS," HARMONIUMS and MELODEONS. Bur.pean taste has long seemed to have been aatistied with the Organs of Alexandre and Pleyel, although neither of those instruments afford much real variety of tone, notwithstanding the makers have multiplied stops and sets of reeds, and by conse quence the cost, to an extraordinary degree. The American Organ, made by S. D. & H. W. Smith, Bostoa. mar safely challenge comparison with either of them, whether as regards variety, power and spreetnefe* ot tone, or cost. All reed instruments made by the best manufac turer* in this country are constructed on the same principle, vis: of drawing the air through the reeds by an exhaustive bellowa, instead of forcing it through them by powerful pressure, and the 44American Organ" differs from its competitors mainly in three points: 1st, the great care and A * ?' ? ? ? ? '? X ?naniifasTtiipa1 O/f in tha OI I/O lie aa mecv art? nc to U1 rorun, auu ju. iu iuv u rrc of a reverberating box, which adds materially to the power of the instrument without detriment to its delicacy and sweetness. Any person possessing a musical box ean readily appreciate this improve ment by setting it while in operation on a mantel or table, and then on a large empty box or barrel, and observing its vastly increased power and rich ness when ia the latter position. In these three points?and they are certaialy material ones?is superiority claimed by the Ame rican Organs of Messrf. 8. D. & H. W. Smith over the read instruments of other makers. The Messrs. Smith being the most experieaoed Reed Organ makers in Boston (having established them selves in 1852) and having at least equal facilities with any other makers, nave always kept them selves familiar with all improvements and inven tions in their departmert, and they confidently fssert their"Amkrican Organs." to be unequalled n voicing, and unsurpassed by any, at home or abroad, in purity, sweetness and power of tone. The contrivance for producing varied expression, such as the "treble forte," tremolo and the swell, and the ease with which change of stops may be made, render the American Organ, in skillful hands, capable of as much delicacy of expression and variety of effect as the expensive Harmoniums of Alexandre with their thirteen registers, and while undoubtedly far superior in durability, is sold for less than naif the ?cost. The demand in England for Smith's American Organ is steadily increasing, and is an irrefraga ble proof that it. triumphantly stands the test of competition in their own market with the most celebrated European instruments. ?

This afternoon a large delegation of the Na tional Union League paid tbrlr respects to President Lincoln, and were received by him in the East Room. * Alter the introductory .ceremonies were over, Col. O. T. Beard, of Brooklyn. N. Y., in beb&lf of the delegation, made a few remarks, congratulatory ot President Lincoln's re nomination, to which the President replied as follows: Gentlemen, I can only say in response to the kind remarks of vour chairman, as I snppose, that I am very grateful for the renewed confi dence which has been accorded to me ,both by tbe Convention and by the National League I am not insensible at all to the personal com pliment there is in this, and vet I do not allow myself to believe that any but a small portion of it is to be appropriated as a personal compliment. That really the con vention and the Union League assembled with a higher view?that of taking care of the interests of the country tor the present and|the great future: and that the part I am entitled to appropriate as a compliment is only that part which I may lay hold of as being the opinion ol the Convention and of the League?that I am not entirely unworthy to be entrusted with the place which I have occupied for the last three yean. But I do not allow myself to suppose that either the Convention or the League have concluded to decide that I am either tbe greatest or best man in America, but Tather they have con cluded that it is not best to swap horses while crossing the river, and have further concluded that I am not so poor a horse that they might not make a botch of it in trying to swap. [Laughter and applause.] After the conclusion of the President's re marks, the Illinois delegation entered the room and were cordially received by the President. During a conversation between President Lin coln and several members of this delegation, some mention was made that A. B. Sloanaker, of Pennsylvania, had procured a flattering picture of him (tbe President) and presented ft to tbe 1 llinois delegation, and he said, "I sup pose he made it from my principles, not my beauty." [Laughter.] | Official announcement to President Lincoln op His Rbnomination by the Bal timore Convention.?At a# o'clock the com mittee appointed yesterday by the National Union Convention at Baltimore, to inform President Lincoln of his nomination by that convention, reached the White House, when they were invited into the East Rootri by the President, where the President was conversing with the members of the delegation who had previously called upon him. Gov. Deniilson, President of the Convention and Chairman of said Committee, then ad dressed the President as follows: Mr. President?The National Union Conven tion, which closed its sittings at Baltimore yesterday, appointed a committee consisting of one from each State, with myself as its chairman, to Inform you of your unanimous nomination by that Convention for election to the office ot President of the United States. That committee t have the honor of now in forming you, is present. On its behalf I have also tbe honor of presenting you with a copy of the resolutions or platform adopt ed by that Convention as expressive of its sense, and of the sense of the loyal people of the country which it represents; of the prin ciples and the policy that should character ize the administration of the Government in the present condition of the country. I need not say to you, sir, that the Convention in thus unanimonsly nominating you for re-election but gave utterance to tbe almost universal voice of the loyal people of the country. To doubt of your triumphant election would be little short of abandoning the hope of the final suppression of the rebellion, and the restora tion of the authority of the Government over the insurgent States. Neither the Convention nor thoseiepresented by that body entertained any donbt as to the final result. Under your administration, sus tained by that loyal people and by our noble army and gallant navy, neither did the Con vention nor do this Committee doubt the speedy suppression of this most wicked and unpro voked rebellion. [A copy of the resolutions was here handed to the President.] I should add, Mr. President, it would be the pleasure ot the committee to communicate to you, within a few days, through one of its most accomplished members, Mr. Curtis, of New York, by letter, more at length, the cir cumstances under which you have been placed in nomination for the Presidency. ths president's response. Tbe President taking the resolutions froititols pocket where he had placed them, and unfold ing the same, said: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Com mittee, I will neither conceal my gratification nor restrain the expression of my gratitude that the Union people through their Conven tion in the continued effort to save and advance the Nation, have deemed me not unworthy to remain in my present position. I know no reason to donbt that I shall accept the nomination tendered; and yet, perhaps, I should not declare definitely before reading and considering what is called the platform. 1 will say now, however, I approve the declaration in favor of so amending the Con stitution as to prohibit slavery throughout the nation. When the people in revolt, with a hundred days of explicit notice that they could within those days resume their allegiance without the overthrow of their institutions, and that they could not resume it afterwards, elected to stand out, such amend ment to the Constitution as is now proposed became a fitting and necessary conclusion to tbe final success of the Union canse. Such alone can meet and cover all cavils. Now, tbe unconditional Union men, North and South, perceive its importance, and embrace it. In the joint names of Liberty and Union let us labor to give it legal form and practical effect. At the conclusion of the President's speech all of the committee shool{ him cordially by the hand and offered their personal congratula tion#. RUMORS. Rumor has been busy for the last twenty-four hours with stories that " Grant is retreating," "Grant has fallen back fifteen miles," "Grant has gone to Harrison's Landing, on James river," Jcc., ice. These rumors have, for the most part, doubt less grown out ot the lact that Grant has not been reported as fighting for the last day or two; and as it is known that he is not of the stand-still order, the conclusion was immedi ately jumped to that he was either falling back, or swinging across the peninsula to James river and a new base, with the purpose of heading for Richmond on s new tack. Without pretending to be over-knowing, we will undertake to say that whatever may be tbe movements Grant is engaged in, no one of them partakes In the slightest degree of the character of a retreat. Grant may be feeling along the entire line of the defenses of Rich mond for tbe most vulnerable point, much as he Alt along every part of the defenses of Vlcksburg, and he will surely be as successful in tbe case of Richmond as he was in that of Yicksbnrg. CAPTURE OF A PRIZE. On Friday last two of Marshal McPhail's detectives, in cruising in the Potomac, came across the schooner Melinda, of Baltimore, Capt. Edward Lee, owned by himself and brother, and susplcioaing something wrong, as she was bound to Alexandria and was lying at a,mh?c_wben she had a fair wind, they boarded her,'when they found that she had an assorted cargo, among which was some whis ky in barrels, marked cider.

Senate.?Mr. Morrill moved to take tip the bill in addition to the several acts concerning commercial intercourse between loyal and in surrectionary States, and to provide for the col lection of captured and abandoned property, and the prevention of frands in States declared in insurrection. Mr. Davis asked the gentleman to give way to allow him to offer a joint resolution to re store peace among the people of the United States, and it was read. Messrs. Sumner and Howard objected to th# reception of the resolution, and the Chair de cided that the resolution was not in order Mr. Davis contended that objections were void, as tbe resolution had been read by its title, and the second reading was called for. Mr. Johnson said if the facts were as stated . by Mr. Davis, it was certainly too late to ob ject to the reception. He would vote against the resolutions, because he thought them ill advised, and was in flavor of disposing of them. F Mr. Conness thought tbe resolutions were insurrectionary, and be was not in favor of taking tbe vote on their adoption or rejection. Mr. Lane said if the resolutions were before the Senate, he moved their rejection. After some debate, the question was then taken on Mr. Davis' appeal, and the decision ot the Chair was sustained, and the resolu tions were not received. House.?The House resumed the considera tion of the bill reported from the Committee for the District of Columbia to incorporate the Baltimore and Washington Depot and Poto mac Ferry Company: which was passed. A joint resolution was passed requiring the Secretary of the Interior to cause surveys to be made and estimates prepared lor additional facilities for drainage and sewerage in the citv of Washington, in connection with the intro dnetlon of Potomac water and the deepening of the channel of the Potomac river; the ex pense of the survey not to exceed s&ooo.
