Thb District Democracy ahd thb Nomi nations at CHICAGO? Our Special Dutch Re porter About ?The National Democratic As sociation held another meeting at Parker's Hall last mght, and the regular officers not having yet returned ircm Chicago, J. D. 4;lark, Esq., was called to tbe chair, and J. F. Halidav, Esq. acted as secretary. The room was well filled,and the crowd at large evinced considerable enthusiasm over the Chicago nom inations, though with most of the leading spirits of the Association (who are of the V loreace-Breckinridge stripe, as opposed to the Belmont. Doue las stripe of the old wings of the Democracy,) th* nomination of McClellan is a pill not altogether pleasant to take. An opportunity was given persons to join, and the following: signed the cons'.itituion, viz: Cleo J. Johnnon, Wm. B. Dyer. Samuel Strong, Tins. E? Waddy, Dr. John B. Blake, John Little. Delias Kearson, James Curtain, Jesse ? Wilson, and Thos. Wright. Mr. John ? Li ? is. amid considerable enthu siasm,read 'be dispatch announcing the nomi nation of McClellan and Pendleton, aud it was followed by applause, and then speakers were called for, and Frederich Schmidt came for ward. They bad bee-art, he said, of ter clorions nomination at Chick-&-go of Shorge Pa Mu clellan for ter Fre?hdency, eut now all that vash neeear> tu ?usure success vash energetic action on 'er part of men who tair tooties know, and, knowing, dare maintain.

Freemen are not permitted free dom of speech, tbe press ish muzzled, ter churches, eten. had been seized, and now ter ?varry stones cried out against this wiokei gov ernment, who ? out now be called upon to give an account of its domes. [Applause 1 It vash a happy nogeery that they vas here permitted to assemble to discuss questions ot National bo shy Six months ago tbey coot not have helt su>-h meeting without taloger ot imprisonment. Now ail who support not ad ministration are called coppairheads! Vail, we are all ?oppairheads [laughter and ap plause]; ceppate vash better as gxeenbicks, and if copp-iirheads got power we will have something ? j ngle in our pockets.

[Applause.] Ter beepels of ter South have right to say bow they will conduct thair own affairs and it tbey will or not have slavery. [Great applause ] Now we prepare ter have meeting on 17th i?ept?mber unt let n? have a pig meeting, let us have snch pig demonstration ?fter heepel as will startle ter monster in ter Vite House unt make him trempie! [Applause.] But first we want som?? muni-h. out though greenbacks isti cot goot mon ?? h u e .-hall be varry glat ter have you coo m up to ter stand and geev us some jreenba ks [Laughter and applause ] Mr. Scbmia* then took Die seat, and," on mo iion, Messrs. Maun, McGuire and Dyer were appointed a committee to confer with Mr. McElbanv relative to procariug the flag of the old Democratic Association. It was announced tbat the flag was not ready to be boisied at 9 o'clock, as proposed, and a motion wat> made to hoist it at I o'clock to-mor Tow 'hi- j afternoon, at which time the names of the candidates will be inscribed upon it. Messrs. Lyon, Thomas, Clark, Morseli and Grimes were appointed a committee to hoist the flag. T. G. Clayon, Esq., after sundry calls had been made, tick the stand, and proceeded to read the resolutions adopted at the Chicago Convention, which was accomplished after a consldeiable effort, those immediately about tbe stand paying some attention, but others in tie back pan ot the nail creating more or less c ?illusion by lond talking and moving about. After resini.e the resolutions, Mr. Clayton t-aid he was here to night to hear the intelli gence ot tbe nomination of George B. Model lar, and George H. Pendleton. The campaign will be a short one, but it will be ?ne ot the most excitable that has ever taken place in the I'nited States. We have to contend with a party in power, terribly powerful in itself, and whlcn bad, in nddition, a large army to back It But we must change the Government, ? tabli?h ? be ngh's ot all the States, and re turn to the original principles upon which the I'nicn was rounded. [Applause] The great men nominated at Chicago would be elected with a powerful majority, and there was no cne found to oppose them in the Democratic ranks except interlopers and latter-day saints, who bad always battled against the Demo cratic party, and came in at the eleventh hour to share the spoils: and when their claims were not recoi uized, again bolted. A voice.??Who were you /or in l-<>01" Another voice.??'Ain't you a latter-day saint."' ? Laughter and applause.] Mr. Clayton continued, (unheedingthe inter ruption,) and said the worus useil against their opponents by the Democracy would be soft, but the arguments would oesiroug, [applause, j and when we come up to the grand meeting on September 17th, let us call out all we can, and bave sucha meeting as will make the Admin istration feel iti power and influence. [Ap plause.] He (the speaker) was an admirer of McClellan, and had studied his history, and he defied the Administration to put its linger cu one act of McClellan that could sustain the charges brought against him He ( McClellan ) had always bad the confidence of tbe Govern ment, and bis report upon the Crimean war was a monument to tbe intelligence of his bead and tbe goodness of his heart. He was superior to any military man in tbe country, and as a statesman be bad no superior. [Ap plause.] In oratori he was chaste, beautiful and pure, and stood as high as an Everett. (Applause.] This Administration will do all in its power to defeat our nominee, of course, ?but let us all work. [Applause.] In conclusion, Mr. Clayton urged the De mocracy to stand firm, and beware of those v. ho would come in at a late hour, for the pur pose of reaping tbe benefits of a new admiuis ' ration. Tbe Democracy desired all the co operation tbey could get. They would let sinners return, but as Henry A. Wise said, tuey could come to the altar only as penitents, and until tbey proved their penitence, should ? ot be allowed to sip at tbe chalice. [Ap i.lause ; Tbe Association then adopted a resolution to have tbe flag raising at 7 o'clock instead of 4, and tbe meeting then adjourned to meet again this evening In size and vim the meeting was a decidedly r time affair compared with the irrepressible ?temonstrations of the uproarious full-blooded l>emocracy of yore TH?

I Can aid. Secretary, W H. Pope; and Treasurer, T*he Cna?r stated that the object was well bown, and no speech was needed, but he sug ?eted tbat as Mr. Barron was the principal nover in tbe matter, he give his views; and tat gentleman came forward and remarked tal about a week since be had spokea to some o his acquaintance? upon the plao, and tbey nd Joined him, some twelve or fifteen putting raiuO each, and it was concluded to adver? tu it. He thought he had eried in limiting th number. One of tbe obiects of the meeting ws to decide whether the ? amber should be liiited, and adopt such other regalata?? as ihr should see At He ?t first thought of ma kig an arrangement with the Baak of Wash. ington to reoelre the mosey, but the banking hours were inconvenient for the mechanic, and he bad spoken to Mr. Bacon, who had kiadly consented to act aa treasurer. The plan seemed to take, and already it had gone far beyond hi? most sanguine expectation?, the book now con taining about 160 names, and score?, were ap plying each day. This plan he regarded as perfectly fair. Some gentleman here asked how many were enrolled in the District. Mr. Jenks replied that about one in every seven and a halt would draw a prize. Mr. Hurley said be had understood that eome of the* wards had nearly filled their quotas?the Seventh, Second and Fourth. He also understood tbat there had been enrolled about 19,(NK> names, and tbat the quota of the city would be about 1,5(0, and he asked if tt ?se putting in substitutes did not have them credited to tbe respective wards. Mr. H. moved tbat all tbe signers who have paid be considered members. Adopted. Mr. Bacon stated that 16<i persons hed signed the book. UDd the money, S16,9t?A bad been de posited In tbe Bank of Washington. Mr. B. bad been called upon to act as president and treasurer on the primary organization, and bad done so from a desire to benefit his fellow citizen??be not having any money in the as sociation, not being subject to draft. He had received money from two persons in the coun ty, bnt none from Georgetown. Mr. Pfleffer stated tbat his name was on the books; he was enrolled here aud in Pennsyl vania, aud wished to know if he was drafted in either place whether he wonld be entitled to benefits ! Mr. Hnrly iaid if he intended to stand the draft in Pennsylvania he was not entitled to membership. The treasurer was directed to retnrn Mr. P. his money. Mr. Pope. What was to be done with the enrplns after tbe drafted members was pro Tided for? Tbe obligation was then read, which states tbat tbe signers pledge their sacred honor in case the amount is not sufficient to procure for each dratted man a substitute, a sufficient proportionate amount will be made up by them Mr. Davis suggested that those drafted who would be exempt on examination by the sur geon after the draft be not entitled to benefits. On motion ot Mr Rome, a committee was appointed to d raft resolutions for the govern ment of the association, composed of Messrs. Barron, Roose, Hurley, Elliott, and Holts lander. After a short absence the committee returned and reported tbe following: This Association shall be called the Washing ton City Exemption association. Tbe object of this association sball be to afford mutual aid to the members of the associa tion in procuring substitutes should any of the members be drafted in the approaching draft. Tbat persons enrolled and subject to draft in tbe city of Washington, D. C. may become members of this association by paying tbe treasurer one hundred dollars and signing these articles: ProviiUd, Tbat the association shall not exceed five hundred persons In num ber. Tbat in case of a draft, the funds of this as sociation, after paying tbe necessary incidental expenses, shall be equally distributed among the members of this association who may be dratted for military service, unless they are ex empt from military duty. The officers of this association shall be a president, vice president, treasurer, and secre tary. The president, vice president and secre tary shall constitute a board ot directors to car ry into equitable effect the object of the associa tion. That sbould there be no draft to fill tbe quota of the city before the first day of December, A. D. 1864, each member sball be entitled to receive his one hundred dollars, less bisequit able share of the necessary expenses of this as scciation. The treasurer shall not pay out any moneys of this association except on tbe order of the board of directors, signed by the president, and countersigned by the secretary. Tbat the subscription books of this associa tion shall be closed September 3, 1?64, at 10 p. ro . and tbe treasurer be authorized to print 4W? copies of the names of the members of tbe association for distribution. A gentleman moved that the amount to be paid to each drafted man shall not exceed issu. Several Voices?"Uh no! No limits'." The mover answered, that possibly there would be but few dratted, and in that case tbey would receive more than what was ne cessary. Voices?"They may have my hundred." "Mine too." ??Yes, give them all." The mover remarked, "I am satisfied if the others are," and withdrew his motion. Mr. Hurley offered a vote of thanks to Messrs. T. H. Barron and P. F. Bacon, for their exer tions in the movement, and it was adopted. Mr. Halstead offered a resolution that any member putting In a substitute before the draft be entitled to receive his 9100; which was laid on the table.

Gtortetorcn D. C, Aug. 27.18S4. Those citizens of tbe town who are subject to the approaching draft to furnish soldiers for our army, and who desire to avoid that service, are in vited to join in the following self insuring scheme : Every citizen who is liable to he drafted can de posit the sum of One Hundred Dollars in the Bank of Commerce. The whole sum so deposited will constitute a fund for the exclusive benefit of those of the deposi tors who may be drafted The scheme will work thn? : Should there he one hundred depositors, for instance, and only twenty of them be drafted, eighty would he protected from service by paying one hundred dollars eaoh, while tbe whole ten thousand dollars would be distributed in sums of five hundred dollars each to the twenty who were dratted. With that they conld obtain substitutes or keep the money and go into service, at their own option. Of course the real result will he ao varied from tbe one here given as an illustra'ion as to make it more or less beneficial to the drafted parties ; but there is this absolute certainty about it. that every drafted man will get the whole of his money back, with the almost equal certainty of more than double that sum, aad a probability of his re ceiving a sum of not Use than five hundred dollars. In this scheme there ean be no juggling, no pre cedence of favorite individuala, or trirks played off upon tbe ui-suspecting. There will b- but two well ascertained parties : those who escape the draft and lose their hundred dollars, and those who are draft?** and get all the money deposited by tbe whole association. r-hould thi? scheme fail o'a faverableresult, or work any particular hardship to one of the de positors, the subscriber baa in view an al.iunctive s?beme which will afford theneeessarv relief with oet any additional costs to the association.
