He is a young man of excellent character, and un doubted qualification for tbo office.

Hackworth nominee for county Surveyor, is too well and favorably known Davis, F. M. Buckner, S. W. Taylor, and to the voters of this county to require an ex- Silaa Osborn. Our tickets, County, State and National are now before the people, and it behooves the Union mrn of Wapello to organize and prepare for the election. Let us go to work Let the documents be circulated. Let the people be inspired with the importance of sustaining the cause of the Union at the ballot box as^ well as in the army, for the sake of our brave aoldiers, our glorious Un ion^&nd the best interests of humanity. _Tbe Congressional Convention for this district met at Oskaloosa yesterday. The rtfeult is now well understood will be the nomination for re election of our present worthy Representative, lion. Grinnell, by acclamation. Such a result will be bailed by the Union voters of this District with enthusiasm. Mr. Giinnell has made record the past session, of which any memWr, especially a new one, might be proud, nis speeches have been timely, able and effective,—his votes have been all on the right side, while no member has ex erted himself more to benefit his constitu ents in the way of general business. It is fitting that his course should be endorsed by a nomination and election for a second term, and we rejoice that he is certain of the former, and no less certain of the latter.

They mav be summed up thus: After the m'ne exploded in front of the 9th corps a charge wa. ordered, and the rebels immediately opened a terrific fire from every part of their lines. It was im possible for our troops to withstand such a galling fire and they fell baek in very good order, bringing with them 3509 prisoners. A brigade of colored troops was then or dered to charge. Six pieces of artillery fell into our hands,"but it was impossible to ex tricate them from the ruins ot the explosion. The loss of the enemy was severe—one en tire South Carolina regiment was blown into the air, and a large number of meo were killed. Gen'ls Bartlett andfit fid were captured by the rebels.

M\ DEA,B .WIFB.—Since my last letten, we (the Army of the Tennessee under Gen. McPherson) have cominuud our flank move, ment by the left and to the rear until day before yesterday evening we encountered the enemy and his breast works, drove him steadily until night inside of a very strong line of fortifications. During the charge this day we lost our Division Commander, Gen. Gresham. Yesterday morning our division made a'desperate charge on very strong line of the enemy's fortsand rifle pits, we got. op nearly to the muzzles of their guns with our Regiment and Brigade, but not being properly supported on the ri^bt we failed to take heir works. We lost 49 men killed and wounded yesterday in the charge. Lieut. GeKhart was slightly wound ed in the leg. Orderly Wilson of Co.

DRCATOR, OaoaotA. i!v 2') 1364. EOITOH COOKJBR :—One of the most se vere rain s'orm* that I ever witnessed visi ted our army on the night of July 15th the vivid flashes of lightning came in tick suc cession, and the heavy io*r of thunder was intense, as the sound r^vb^-ated over the relM 4)Wn throu |he mountain girges. the spice of one hour the rain continued to pour down in torrents the small streams flowing from the moun tain sides, were soon filled to overflowing. Our army was bivouacked in the open woods, and as is most generally the case, the weary sol |er «eeks a place where he can best rest his weary limbs, which is be neath the shady b-xig'i* of a stately oak, a hemlock or a pine, aod this ctused an un timely end to the ndtnber of forty or fifty o( our brave comrades on the night of July 15. Throughout the encampment of our army quite a number of trees were struck with lightning, causing those that lay beneath them to be instantly killed or severely in jured. In the 2nd regular U. S. ar illery, o( G«i V each's command, three men were killed and a number of others were so road from Chattanooga to Marietta a distance ofiono bnndred an 1 thirty miles, by placing a Jjertain number of them in conspicuous places on each train thus preventing our irain fr xa being fired into by the rebel ma rauders. Previous to the execution of this order, we had two or three trains blown up and destroyed, by thefenemy placing torpedoes Oft the trick b»it of U^e rto mtenruptiofto' made, and a sufficient amount of provisions are now being forwarded to supply the. wants of the army. Perhaps some of our Northern rebel sym pathizers will think that this is a very bar barous way of treating thair Southern breth ren down iq "Dixie." Let me say to them the army says that General Sherman is jus iifl6d ja tlw tct #nd W0 woul(i fJeli?ht ln seeing a good number of them compelled to accompany their brother bridge burners (as a protection to our railroad engines and roll ing stock.) free of charge, and furnished with subaistance that would only be neces sary for existence. We think that SUCT treatment here in this sweltry climate, woqld soon put an end to their faultfinding and harp ag ngiinst the administration, the prosecution of the war, 4c., ,A Another^ mail has arrived, and ,* largo number o£ .he )ys assemble in a group around (he regimental postmaster, awaiting its attribution. But faw of the boys are made the glad recipients of letters from home and loved ones far way. What wou'd be the feelings of that parent if he could see his boy as he turns and walks leisurely back to his post of duty muttering to hinasell "no letters from home to day, father certain ly has forgotten me and mother too. has neg lected to write me that lengthy missive that I once received regularly every week." I think that some parents and even friends should be more promot in writ'ng to their friends and relations in the army, they should give men all theeocouragemsnt that they possibly can, as is needed iKsoch trying times as those, i The popular sentiment of the armv is strongly in favor of the re-election of "Old i Abe." We cl iim it to ba his jreat duty to veteran:7,e, the svne as did a large number of his soldiers, that it would b* doing him a great injustice to remove him fro o a pesi tion that he h-»« long filled with unequaled ability and u vviralleled success, and to place the reins of government in the hands of one who would be unqualified and unac quainted wi'h the du'ies with which his mind wou'd be (asked. The result of the coming convention at Chicago is looked for by the army with a great deal of interest. It is ilievel by many that the traitpr Vallandingham will be one of the .prominent candidates for nomination, as we learn already that he has been ap pointed a delegate to the convention. A letter from Johnston's army, published in the Atlanta Appeal of June S7th says: "Thel ite Northern news regarding Yalland ingham's return and his emhusiastic re ception is a subject of much discussion, and looked upon as favorable to our cause." I have conversed with a large number of reb^l deserters that are daily coming into our lines, and they a'l give proof of the fact, that in the rebel army and especially the reb I officers, there exists a great amount of sympathy for Vallandingham. They be lieve that he will eventually accomplish some traitorous act, that will result greatly in fa vor of the confederacy. Oh ye VaUand inghamers and peace men have you .contem plated in your own minds the fate that awaits you I Whv do you still persist in bidding defiance to the civil and military laws of the country Would you have a breadth of your State? Would you hare your.houses burned, your property destroy ed, aad your cultivated fields made a barren deseitf If so, go on In your hellish schemes by opposing eve vthing connected with the prosecution of the war. For three long wearisome years, hsre your homes and firesides been protected by a military power that you detes Th seat of war has been carried into the interior of the States that are in rebellion against the government and today you are found ma king both public and private demonstrations in almost direct opposition to those that in sure and give to you your only protection, your lives and your property.
