"We attended the State Convention this year as we have done all similar conventions Rince the organization of the great Union Party at Iowa City in 1866, and we can say to the readers of tbe Courier, that in num bers, ability and devotion to the cause, the late meeting will compare favorably with its predecessors. We left home on Tuesday and found at the Depot large delegations frim all the counties on theBurlington anJKeokuk roads, enough to fill at Eddyville the five splendid coaches provided for their accomodation by that most efficient and very popular stage manager, Dick Loundsbury. In a very short time we were on board and moving away over the hills and prairies towards the capital of Iowa. The weather was sweltering, but the re cent rains had settled the dust, the roads were hard, the teams were good, the driver skilful and accomodating, the company were sociably inclined, so that everything being propitious, we had a pleasant ride and safe delivery at Des Moines about 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning. Being a day in advance of the convention we expected to find accomodations, and fel icitated ourself upon the advantage we should have over later arrivals, but found on inquiry that every bed in the city was al ready engaged. We did finally succeed in getting a very good room at fhe Savery House. But hundreds of others were less fortunate and had to camp on sofas, lounges, and some on the floor that same Wednesday right. If a vote of these respectable indiv iduals had then and there been taken, it would have been unanimous in favor of fin ishing off the upper story of the Savery House before another convention. It is a large building and will accomodate when finished a large number of guests. Tfce heat on Wednesday was intense, but was not sufficiently BO to melt the ardor of candidates and their friends, who thronged the corridors and parlors of the Savery House, busy all day in preparation for the grand fight on Thursday. A remark of, Dixon in the Register of that morning, that diligent enquiry had failed to find any can didates, should be taken as a "sarkastikal* observation of that eminently facetious and witty but withal able and judicious itemizer. With the mejeury at 100 or more, it was manifestly imprudent for corpulent persons to move out of the shade on the said Wed nesday, but we managed to ca!l on Palmer of the Register and State Printer.and Tees dale at tbe Post Office, and found both of those public functionaries discharging their onerous duties in a manner which will oom tnand the approval of the present and future generations. Gen. Wilson, the indefatiga ble secretary ol' the Agricultural College, was busy as usual gathering and imparting information relating to the great interest of th? age. John Carroll, '#te of Ottum wa is keeping the Carroll Hous«, formerly the Ulodgett, and is doing well Joseph Gump '8 with him. We had the pleasure of meet ing John Browne, formerly of this. city. He is still attending to the "Dos Moines Im provement Co ," and finds time to devote himself to '^architecture" besides. Son»c of the finest buildings in Des Moines were des igned hy him, atd we wire happy to learn tb«t a plan of the Agrn'nujtqral College drawn hy him, has been accopted as the bast of OMWUXtfotftt. W• saw a lithographed copy and it struck Bt Ui chaste and beautiful design. Of the convention it is unnecessary to say anything further bcve, as the proceeding* in full arv published elsewhere. The prosper for crops between here and Des Moiues is very good. The wheal har vest has commenced. General New* of the Week. The rebel mid in Maryland is the exci ting event of the week. They number *2u,000 it is now stated, and have created a gieat scare throughou: tbe region centering at Baltimore. Brecfcenridge and Early are 'he leaders of the force. The foimer crossed above Harpers Ferry, the latter, with the main bnrlvr at Elwnnfc Ferry.— They have taken Frederick, beat our forces at Monocacy, burnt several bridges and de stroyed miles of tbo track of the Northern Central Railread, captured a train on the Philadelphia, Sb Baltimore Railroad, cut the telegraph in numerous plaees, burnt the residence of Gov. Bradford of Maryland, made their appearance at Rockville. 16 miles from Washington, and stolen and ran off over the Potomac a large number of horses snd cattle. loss in the fight at Monocacy 1,000.— Loss of the Rebels about the same. Gunpowder bridge reported destroyed. Other accounts contradict th'i report Two trains on the P. W. & B. Railroad burned. Firemen of oue shot dead. Pas sengers robbed of money, watches and cloth ing. Mails on one train saved by passen gers. Express car not hatred from. Gen. Codwalader's residence at Magnolia was burned on the 11th. Maj. Gen. Franklin was taken prisoner on tbe train captured at Magnolia. The 19th Army corps arrived at Balti more from New Orleans on Monday. This is doubtless a last desperate effort to get supplies to keep the breath of life a lit tle longer in the bogus confederacy. There are no indications of alarm at Washington or Baltimore. Forces are rapidly concen trating from all quarters, and ere this reach es our readers, the whole thieving gang will either be captured, or skedadling (town Che Shenandoah valley. The Pirate Florfcto burned several vessels •ffCapc Henry and steered North east. A fire in New York on the 11th destroyed property amounting to $250,000. The Governor of New York issued orders on the 11th to the miliary authorities of the State to be ready fbr service, and urging volunteering in the National Guard. Secretary Fessenden was in New York on the 11th and it was said would negotiate a loan of $75,000,000 from the banks for im mediate use of the Treasury. The rectitude of the late Secretary of the Treasury is vindicated, as every fair-mind ed person anticipated. The special com mittee of the House of Representatives, ap pointed to make investigation of certain charges against the Treasury Department, have made their report They flrd nothing in tbe official conduct of Mr. Chase but what is deserving of approbation and ap plause, and nothing in the officious conduct of his enemies but what should move the astonishment and indignation of all good citizens. The President has issued a proclamation approving the plan of reconstruction of State governments adopted by the last Congress. This plan provides for the appointment of a Provisional Governor for each of the States In rebellion wbo shall oommence their ad ministration when the authority of the gov ernment has been re-established in said States. They bhall then enroll all the male inhabitants and require of them to take the oath of allegiance, subject to oertain provis ions and exemptions specified in the plan. If a majority of them shall take tbe oath, then they shall proceed to elect delegates to a Convention for the re-establishment of a State government and having adopted a Coa* siitution, shall certify it to the President and proceed to elect Senators, Representatives and Electors, who shall be recognised. This plan is approved by the President. Representative Recruits.—A movement has been inaugurated in New York, 8t. Louis and other cities, on the part of wealthy men not subject, in consequence of bodily infirmities and age, to be drafted, to procure substitutes to represent them in the military service. The idea is a good and patriotic one, and if generally acted upon must result in a yerv considerable addition to our ar mies. The plan is heartily approved by the Government, who will render all neces sary aid in carrying it into execution. We observe that recruits of this description ooet in New York $400. Hewvf-^Cannonading at Vfeten bnr«r. Near Petersburg, July 7. The enemy were discovered erecting a fort in front of our left centre. A battery of 32-pounders, recently placed in position, opened upon them from the line of the 5th oorps. This suspended all operations at that point all day. Our guns bellowed forth their thunder and were answered by rebel cannon. Most of their shots fell short. For a season this destioyed the harmony existing between the two opposing lines. Richmond and Petersburg papers of the 6th are jubilant over the excitement they imagine their raiders are creating in Mary, land. No intimation is given of the number of troops detached from Lee's army, or by whom commanded. The news front Sherman's Department continues encouraging. The repulse of the 27th seems not to have retarded his onward march in the least, and now being in the open, level countr) he will be likely to push Johnson steadily until Atlanta, his object ive point is reached and captured. The Danish war in Europe has broken out again, the Prussiai.s had re commenced an attack on the Alsen fortifications. Secretary Fessenden has accepted the Secretaryship of the Treasury, and has eo tered upon the duties of that office. i Sent to Baltimore. New York, July 12.—On Sunday night orders were received at the Navy Yard here to dispatch at once to Baltimore as large a force of sailors as could be mustered at this station to man the impromptu batteries in the neighborhood of that city. Admiral Paulding immediately answered the call by sending quite a number from the school ship North Carol ins, snd it is presumable a like dialt will be madu on other navy ysrds for gusuM.

The Rebel Iftsld. Baltikorb, July 11.—The news from Washington is exciting. The Star says The skirmishing on the Rockville road that oommenced early this forenoon, was contin ued by the advanoe of the rebel force to a point about four miles west of Tarrytown, there their progress on that road stopped, and they disappeared in some other direc tion. Subsequently we hear of their skir mishing between 11 and 12 o'clock, on snd sround 7th street turupike, near Clagget's farm residence. Adair reports to-day that the rebels burn ed the residence of Blair. There were 800 encamped at Rockville last night Panic stricken refogees are arriving to day from the vicinity of Edward's Ferry, report the rebels crossing tbe river, north of that point yesterday and to day in large numbers, some say 12,000 strong, others 80,000. Breckenridge is believed to be in command of their advance in this direction and Imboden commands the cavalry now hanging around the fortifications. All was quiet in front of our pioket lines upon what is known as the river road up to noon to-day. The Star says: The numbers and par poses of the rebel invading force is confus iiut and conflicting we give elsewhere the opinion entertained by many around us.— Tbe rebel force is not of sufficient strength to undertake a serious attsck upon the for tifications of Washington, and that is not their purpose. Per contra, we have just received the following, from a source of great intelligenoe and reliability, one that lias on repeated occasions given tbe most accurate information of the rebel movements in Vir ginia. The information received from this quarter is as follows The rebel army of in vasion, marched down tbe valley 45,000 strong, including 8,000 cavalry, under com mand of Breckenridge, Ransom, Imboden and McCauseland and Longstreet was at Gordonsville on Tuesday last, with addition al forces to join the rebel anny in invasion, and propose that the army was to attempt the capture of Washington by surprise. The Virginia Central Railroad is repaired and running from Richmond to Stanton. Moseby has 242 men in his command and expects to have his force increased. In a fight at Aldie's Moseby csptured 81 cavalry men, killed 20, aud captured magazine and a 12 poynoer cannon. Latsb-—Up to quarter pest two o'oloek, the stata of affairs in the voinitVof Babbit's branch post office, continues about*tb* din the morning. New Yoru, July 1«.—-The World prints the following. extmot from a private letter, dated Lexington, Va., June 12—Yesterday we marched from Medway here, being quicken ed as we were advancing by the. sound of Crook's guns engsged with Gen. and who hold this place. They defended it with great acrimony, burning the bridge and, playing on the hills as we came up with shell, and bushwhacked us from behind ev ery tree. This was madness on their part, as we had beaten them before being joined by Gens. Crook and Aver ill, and are now of course able to whip them twice over.' This morning we destroyed the Virginia Military Institute. To-morrow we move before daylight, but I have no idea in what direction. Our situa tion is pressing and critical. If L«e is not fully employed by Grant, he can send troops enough via Lynchburg railroad, but if Grant will hold all his force in Richmond, this col umn oan make the rebel capital untennble within a tew days, by cutting off the last main artery of supplies. Philadelphia. July 12.—The Evening Tel egraph of this oity has the following: Fighting has been going on near Washing ton since morning. The rebels are approach ing the defences on the northern 6ide of the city ii strong force. A special dispatch to the Bulletin from Harnsburg says our forces are reported to be in possession of Frederick. It is rumored that the rebels are re-cro«s Ing the Potomac below Maryland Heights. The northern Central railroad is free from rebels now. LATER—4 p. a#.—^The rebels have again cut the wires between Baltimore and Wash ington. New York, July 12.—By ordor of Maj. Gen. Duryea the 28th and 56th regiments Brooklyn State Militia, are to be rccruited to the foil standard within ten days to answer the call for 100-day's men. New York, July 12.—The President of the Inland Telegraph Company telegraphs from Philadelphia, that the raiders have destroyed the lines of the Independent Tele graph Company, and such of the lines of the American Telegraph Company as were along the turnpike between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Philadelphia, July 12.—The Biltimwe American of last evening says Gen. Tyler escaped from the rebels, and had reached Ellicott's mills, The reports of the capture of Gen. Frank lin are conflicting. Havre d*j Grace, July 13!—A obstruc tion train left here this mornln-r to repair the raiiroad and the telegraph lines of the Amerioan Telegraph Company Cornrnu* nlcation with Baltimore will probtbly be re-established this evening. Semi-official intelligence has been re ceived here that ye«terday p. in a fight was progressing seven miles from Washington, on the Seventh street roai, near Christal Springs. Parties from Blair, sixteen miles from here, report 1,000 rebel cavalry there last, evening. There lino doubt ifa^M There has been no general engagement, but cavalry skirmishing is going on at in tervals. The enemy has not tnade his ap pearance anywhere within range of our guns, and so far shows no disposition to do so. Philadelphia, July 11, S p. m.—Only two Government wires sre how working south of here. Rumors prevail of an attack by 15,000 rebels on the northern fortifications of Wash ington, but cannot be traced to any definite source. Much excitement prevails here.— Business is nearly suspended. A public meeting is now being held in Independence Square. Recruiting is very brisk, snd before night a large number of men will be ready to leave for Washington and Baltimore. It seems, however, that they aro waiting for Breckinridge, who has been detached with his, division from Lee's army to drive us back or at least bait us between there and Richmond or Lynchburg, whichever we should strike for. It is supposed the plan is to put the broken brigade-* o| the Valley under Imboden, Jenkins, Mudwall Jackson, McCausland and Jones, and to get here a division of Lee's veterans, and then give us another try for the valley. of the Immediate ne­ cessity for heavy reinforcements to Wash ington Philadelphia, July 12.—Manager Wil son, of the American Telegraph Company, in Baltimore, went out last night and re built the lines destroyed by the rebels, thus re-opening telegraphic communication be tween there and Washington. Trains n^w run regularly from Baltimore to Washing, ton. Perryville, Md., July 18.—The reported capture of Gen. Franklin was Incorrect.— The mistake was made by the resemblance between the General and a passenger.— This statement is confirmed by one of Wal lace's staff. Baltimore, July 12,1 p. in.— Everything is quiet around the city. Last night a fbroe of rebels passed thro' Foureontown on their way to join the main force. The rebels had with them General Franklin and staff, captured on the Phila delphia road Monday. Only one bridgo over Gunpowder river en the Philadelphia road, was burned.— Business is at a stand-still. NeaHjr all out lets from the city are closed. War Bulletin. WASHINGTON, July 10. To General Dix: Official dispatches from Major General Wallace are received, and states that a battle took place between the forces under his command and the rebels at Monocacy to-day, commencing at 9 o'clock and continuing till 5 p. m. Our forces were overpowered by the superior number of the enemy and we were forced to retreat in disorder. He reports that Col. Seward of the Heavy New York Artillery, was wounded and taken prisoner that Brig. Gen'i Taylor was also taken prisoner. Tbe enjemy's foroes number at least 80.000. Our troops behsved well, but suffered se vere loss. He is retreating towards Baltimore. [Signed,] I?. M. STANTON*, Sec'y of War. Q-jerrilla bands are annoying the naviga tion of the Missouri river.
