Snub's kisses were Inconsiderable. " At six P.M. Wilson, with his cavalry, fell upon the rear of a brigade or Heth's division, which Lee bad Iferown around to his left, apparently with the intention ?T enveloping Burnside.

Towards noon, feowever, General Ledlie's brigade, which was in the ad Woe, formed in column, and marching by the flank, poshed on. It may be well to preface what follows by tihytn* that the order to do so was either misunderstood Or mleoomsiiinioated, as it occasioned a movement which fbr a time threatened \<ll<aster, and wberelu the courage Md coolness of General I/odlio vrorc admirably displayed In withdrawing bis mon from a very dangerous predica *ent. It may be woll also to explain to your unmllltary fders that In marching by the flank the troops formed a clOse column, four abreast and so advanced, they tolk the road and paased the original sUlr talsh line. Tbo rebels,, either wondering at the koldoees of the movement or desiring to wholly antrap the brigade, allowed them to proceed until they were posslog through a den?e wood, when a volley was poured m from either flank. The troops were not In line battle, and of courso were totally unprepared for such A demonstration. However, General Ledlie gave the ne Msaary orders to withdraw the brigade, though not without some loss. On reaching the intrenchpneoti an explanation was had, when It wag discovered that there Was sonic mlitalcu about the order i, Chaplain Daahtcil, Of the I :fty -seventh Massachusetts, fcad a narrow c ? cape, one bullet pafilag in very close proximity lo hi; aar.

Despatches received by General F.wing from Colonel Rogers, coinmaodiiig at Cape Girardeau, state that the enemy Is unusually active Just now in that portion of tbo State. Colonel Mcl/flan reports that on the night of the 2d Instant there were two hundred guerillas in camp near Pitlaton, at a mill, where they were bssy grinding corn, and be sent a force of two hundred men to look after tbem. A force of guerillas is reported on Cave Island, and another band at Doneghan. Colonel Rogers thinks the movements of the guerillas are Inlendei to eovcr an at; tack upon some important point, and that MuKea wtil probably make demonstrations on Patterson. A message from Captain Ewing, at BloonifleM, says the guerillas destroyed tho telegraph line near Charleston, and swore they intended to keep it down. A despatch from Colonel Rogers, dated Cape Girardeau, June 3, says:? "The whole company of guerillas crossed the river and swamp, and were within cigbt miles of here last night. Tncy have cut the telegraph line to New Ma drid. " The presenoo of these bands of guerillas is accounted for by the abandonment of Batesvtfle and J*ckaonport by the Union troops, wblcb leaves the country open to the rebels of Arkansas.

The Correspondence of the Cleveland Convention Nominee*. LITTER OP THB COMMITTEE TENDERING THB NOMI NATION FOR TUK l'BKSIDBSCY TO OBN. FREMONT. Nkw York, June 3, 1804. (iBNr.iur, ? A convention of tlio people, lilting at Ibo city of Cleveland , in the Stato of Ohio, on the 318t day, or Hay , 1864, have nominated you unanimously and by accla mation as a candidate lor President of the United States. The Convention have appointed us their committee, with Instructions to .communicate to you the result of their deliberations and to ask your acceptance of the nemiaattOQ. Id discharging this duty the committee need hardly inform you. General, that tho convention which liaa thus put you in Domination lor tho oftlce of President repre sented that groat masB of the nation which hold, in prac tice as well as in theory, to the fundamental doctrine of its founders ? that all men have the inalienable right to lil'e, liberty and tho pursuit of happiness* nod that slavery and cast are luuompatiblo with its enjoyment, and ought not to be suffered to exist. The Convention, true to its faith In the common broth erhood of mm and of government by all the people for all tho people, adopted a series of resolutions, ^hich the committee subifiit for your consideration, going in some sense to express the views which they hold in unison with those of tho radical democracy of the nation upon some of the maiu issues to be tried before the people at the coming Presidential election. That they do not cover specifically every point of the political faith of the radical <lem icracy of the country, or do not define perhaps as sharply as they might bavo been mode to do tho radical views of tho Coivention upon the subjects presented, is, after ail, of little importance, for the reason that the illustrious nominee of the Conven tion for President is the living embodiment of all the principles or government and civil and military adminis tration which has called into being the political organiza tion that has just made you, General, its staudnrd bearer. Tour own high character for fidelity to tho equal rights of all tho people, and the signal proofs you bavo given to the world of the possession of the statesmanship and wis dom necessary to govern well and justly, and or the gene ralship so sorely needed to curry the war to a noicii and triumphant issue, :are a better guarantee that the princi ples you represent will uot be betrayed , should the nation olevate you to its Chief Magistracy, than any written pro fession "of political faith, however cunningly dcawn and gravely accepted; with intent to be broken. But the Convention, in what they have done, have sub stantially covered tho whole ground. of the political faith of tho radical democracy, in asserting the necessity for re-establishing tho supremacy of the federal Union, for tho faithful execution of tho laws of tho United States for fo.iintnining the liberties of person, speech and presi (except vth?n suspended by martial law, ) for suppresHini the rehelli m by forco or arms and without compromi-e fir amending tbo constitution so as to abollM and prohibit slavery forever in the United Six to and securing to ull meu absolute equality bo:or> the law, for integrity and economy in the admin istratlon of the national government for upholding thi right of asylum except for crime and olltonoes agamst in ter national lit w ; for tbo vindication or tho Monroo doc trine by declaring anew the determination of tho Amort can people not tj tolerate tlici setting up of any anti-re publican government ou this continent by any foreigi Power; lor insisting upon applying tho "one term" prin ciple to tb-? office of President, and amending the const i tution so as to provide for the election of tnat o Ulcer by ? direct vote of the whole people: for restricting the powei of reconstructing rebellious elates to tho people through their representatives in Congress; and for ronliTaiing the lands of rebels ai.d distributing them amongst the soldiers and actual settlers. What these principles would moan in practice the Convention eleurly declared, General, wben they put you upon tbcm as their candidate for President; lor they knew and the country knows that you will, if elected, faithfully carry them out to all tbeir logical consoquecces without fear or favor, and give the country an adminis tration of public affairs that will command the affections of the wh lo | eople and restore it to its former high place in the scale of nations. Perhaps wo may beat illustrate tbo temper of the Con vent ion by referring you to the letter of ilr. Wendell Phillips, the reading of which was ordorcd and rOuclved with a storm of applai'so. Wo feel authorized to declare it as our opinion, that bad It been offered as a platform of the principles of government and administration, it would have been adopted with the same tumultuous ap plause r.s that which bailed your nomination. Its mas terly exposition of the needs of the conutry in this dark onus of its MttMM and struggles for continued life, is a utfing commentary upon the purposes of the Convention, aud wo commend it to your consideration *a a part of their deliberations. And now. General, having discharged our duty im posed on us by the Contention we trust you will favor us within early reply, signifying your acceptance of the nomination , In order thai the radical democracy of the nation, who^e hearts have already been thrilled with joy at tbo tidings ib.it their heroic lender in the campaign of 1850 lias been summoned lo the field again, m.ny hear his clurlon voice rallying them to victory and Hie salvation of the republic. We are, General, very respectfully, vour friends and servants, WORTHING 103 G SNCTIIEN, of Maryland, Chairman. EDWARD GILBERT, of New York. Caspar but/, or Illinois. CHARLES E. MOSS, of Missouri. N.

Aa a war meaaure, in the be ginning of a revolt which might be quelled by prompt severity, I understand the policy of confiscation, but not aa a fl.'.u! measure of reconstruction after tbe suppression of au Insurrection In the ed|u.?tmonts which are to follow peace no con sideraiions of vengeance can consistently he admitted. The obiect or the war is to make permanently secure the peace and happiness of the whole country, and there was but u mu^le' element in the way of its attainment. This element of slavery may be considered practically destroyed in tbo country, and It needs only your proposed amendment of tbe constitution to make its extinction complete With this extinction of slavery the party divisions created by ii have also disappeared. And if in the history of the country thare has over bcon a time when tho American people, without regard to one or another of tbe political dtvinions,werecnl)ed upon to give solemnly their voice in a matter which involved tbo safety of tbe United Slates, ii is assuredly the present time. If the Couveution at lialiimorc will nominate any man whose l ast life justifies a well grounded conlidence in bis tld< lity to our cordial principle*, tliore is no rensou why there should be any division among tbe really patri otic men of the country. I'o any such I shall bo most hanpy to give a cordial and activo support. My own derided preference Is to aid in thin way, and uot to be myself a candidate. Hut if Mr. I.lncln should be renominated, as I boliovo It would be fatal to tho oouatry to endorse a policy and renew a power which Ins <o?t us tbe lives of thousauds of men, and needlessly rut tho country on tho road to bankruptcy, there will remain no alternative but to orgnni/o against him every Uetnenl of con^cntious opposition, with tbe* view lo prevent tbe misfortune of bis re election.

Tho war, Ccneral, has swept away all old party ties, and ho who is wiso enough to appreciate this fact and range himself on the side of his Imperilled country do wrves the conCdenco of all patriots. Amonc; tbo thousands of democrats who have thus shown their VMM no man of foor undent political faith in the natiou has taken a biuhor or nobler staud than yourself, and to this fact the Convention was keenly alive. When tho war broke out you took the field against tbe common enemy . and led our brave soldiers to battle on mauy n haid rough t field, in which you showed yourself tlto true soldier. And when it was tho fasbkui of tbe government to respect the rights of tho rebels to their sIjvos, and thus to reinforce them to that extent, you bold ly advocated In camp the necessity of depriving tho re beiiion of the Immense resources which slavery conferred Uixin it by Its destruction. Your fo'iow cituens of New York, General, with uot respect to pirty, generously remembered your devotion to (he catite of tho country and liumaui ty. and ft the last State elc lion divlascd their confidence In you by choosing yon to one of the highest offices In tbeir gift. With this record, and with your fearless advocacy of the principles of tbe radical democracy bofore (bem, the Convention did not hesitate but with oue accord, called it; on yon to com plete tbo ticket bearing upon It tbo name of the lllue ' trlous Fremont. [ In conclusion, General, tho committee hope you will I favor tbciu with your early reply, accepting the nomina 1 lion, in order that tho radical democracy may ding to tho breo/.o at ouce the invinclbln (lag of Freedom, I'uion and independence, and movo upon tho enemy's works without delay.

I concur in the action and agree with the principles of tbe Convention where, by its twelfth resolution, the question of reconstruction is referred to the constitutional action or the people, it wiely committed to Uiem an issue peculiarly within the province of the future, and not yet sufficiently omerged from war (owsrrant positive opinion. While I havo ever supposed c onfiscation and loss of tbo property of an enemy in arm* to he a laudable exer ci*e of an established and essential rule or civilized war, I am p'eaped to observe that thr Convention when aMortin^ the juslico of tho principle intended to remit its c.\?roiso to the discretion of the people, hereafter niauifeatcd through their representatives in ("oogrrsa when considering the |xiram>mnt ques lion of rcc4>n?trti<;llnu.

The Con vert leu nere tomorrow is simply tbe son lal gathering of tbe N .tional Council of the Loyal l eague, and not a Chase CiRveution, as supposed. It will be a secret afiatr. It will tnako no nomination; but simply mark out wcrk Tor the vnmpaign and pcrrect tbe Lojai Leaga* organization. There appears to 1># a strong feeling befe for Faymool (for permanont President of the Convention on Tuw lay.

There are a number of great men here busy at work, but who hare made no headway aa yet. There la also an outaide pressure for the adjournment o( the Conven tion, who argue that it will be Impossible to make a nomination that will be successful now. Tbey hare managed to gel the Idea Into the beads ef e<>me of tbe delegate* that if Grant Is successful he will be nominated at Chioago ami elected by an overwhelming majority. If, on the other hand, be 1b defeated, it kills Lincoln. The people will then demand a new man, and declare tbat they have tried Lincoln and that bo has failed, and tbey now want aome one elie. It la doubtful if tbia move will gather strength enough to have any effect here. There are too many otliceholders in attendance. Tbe Ohjo, Penosvlvania and Illinois delegations are holding forth at Barnmn's Hotel; New York, and three or four 01 bora arc at tbe Kuts v.

NAM?* I KO P08KU FOB TILS VICE-PIIE3' DENTIAL NOMINATION, ETC* Washinotos, June 5, 1864. Nearly one-half of the delegates to tbe Baltimore Con vention are in Washington. Tbe management and organization of the Convention are tbo only subjects talked of. There appears to be a sort of mystery in re gard to the so-called Chase Convention, culled for to morrow. " Will it meet? And whit will they do?" are asked everywhere. Tbey have hired a ball, and have otl'ci'od it to the Republican National Committee to hold tho main Convention in on Tuesday; but it was dcciined. Nothing definite Is known in politi cal circles here what this Oth of June party will do. It Is evident that tbe friends of Mr. Lin colu will not have cu3j sailing in the Convention on tbe 7lb. Several storms are brewing, and, although it now looks as if, as In fact nine tenths of the delegates kS.iy, that Lincoln will bo nominated, yet men high in jposition assert that tbey saould not be surprised if he 1 I was set aside. It is claimed, and la fact assertod by [some of tbe delegates, that one-third of the New York delegation , also of those Irom four or Ave other promi nent Ptatca, wilt not rote for Lincoln in November if nominated at Baltimore. If this be true, there certainly k is an entering wedge, and it Is imitosaible to tell what will grow out of it. Tbe charge that a portion or the do legates occupy that position Is openly made, and the names of many of them given. Thus far it has not been denied. Tba question of admitting the delegate? from the Southern .States promises to bo a troublesome one Many of these are ouly Northern mon and hangers on to tbo army. As a matter of course, if the Lincolnites bare everything their own way tbey will be admitted. Next come tbe two sets of delegates from Missouri? the Blur delegates and those elected by tbo recentCoaven tlon. From present indications this will be a test of the 1 Blair, Seward fe Co. strength in the Convention. It they tnvo a majority tbo Blair delegations will be admitted and the othors ruled out. If not, tho reverse. The Tact that tbe anii-Blair set are instructed to insist upon the one term principle will be utedjby tbe Llucolnites sgainst tliom. Tbey are fearful that tbey will bolt Lincoln's nomination. On tba other band, prominent politicians from Pennsylvania assert that If tbe evonta of tbe Con vention prove tbat Lincoln is identified and run by tbe ' ' Rlairs, it will drive thousands In that State over to Fre mont. Tbore is thus a dilemma either way tho Missouri contest Is settled. It was rumored this morning tint Ilenry J. Raymond bad been agreed upon as temporary tbuirman. l'bis caused great excitement and threats of a row and smash up generally. Since that the name of Rev. Br. Breckln, ridge, of Kentucky, is si>oken of, and it is understood that tbe President favors his sel ction. His name will harmonise the factions For porraa:ient President tho nomas of Raymond, or New York Cameron and Crow, of Pennsylvania; senator Foot, or Vermont, and ex Qovercor Dominion, of Ohio, are apokeu of. Andrew Johnson is urged Btrongly by Secretary Seward and others as ibo nominee ror Vice I'.tvl.lent. .Several or the Western delegation who are Instructed ror him slate tbat tboy will givo biui a complimentary voto and then go lor some one from Now York. In fact, several of lb * leaders n the Western delegations met in caucus yester day and decided to go for a New York mm. I ?i k itison was their choice. It w evident that Hamlin will be thrown if so, It will open np a fight in Maine between him and senator loKsendeo. The names of Mx. Licit In son. Ircmaln t.tyi Morgan are all spoken of for \ ire Brest, dent. If the New York dcio^atiuu agree aunng them reives upon a candidate fir that position lie will >ie nomi nated The desire on the part ot tlic Western delegates I? to nominate a man of democratic antecedents, so as to bold tbat element for Lincoln. It will not be all harmony 1 at Baltimore. Delegates to Baltimore In this City.

THE INCREASED EXPENSES Or TUB GOVKKNMKNT? fr-ECRE I AllY CHASE'S FINANCIAL AI.RANUEMENTP. Owing to tbo largely increased expenses of the govern* ment, officially an noun cod by Mr. Chase in bis proposals for tbo new loan, It Is estimated tbat four millions a day will hardly be sufHcieut to meet tbo accumulating requi sitions upon tbo Treasury. The causes of this great in ? c. ease of expenditures are apparont. The total Bomber *of men called out for tbo army under the various procla mations up to this time Is two millions one hundred and Iblrly uiue thousand. Added to this source of expense M tbo nary, including live hundred and eighty oight vessels and forty-four thousand seamen. The loans and liabili ties authorized bv acts of Congress, which are now nearly all exhausted, amount to tivo thousand seven hundred and seventy (our millions nine hundred aud twelve thou sand ci-jbt hundred and eighteen dollars. Daring the yours 1S62 and 1883 Ibe expunges of the government did not exceed two millions per day; but they bave now , been run up to four millions daily by the Increase of prices, as well as of the army and navy and interest on the public debt. It Ik thusffound tbat tty re -olpts from r * venue, lnieraal t ix andsubjcrlptlon to the ten-forty bonds arc Inadequate to tbo dully requirements of the Treasury.

It is not deemod expedient to croate a strin gent money m.irkol, as that would unavoidably keep these notes afloat much longer thun an easy one. The five per cents, with from three to six months ' luicrest ac erred, are now paid to the army, and circulate as car rei.cy as freely as the ordinary legal tenders. ALL THE AT' PRO Pill AT ION BILL!
