HACKWORTH, CenferT^p. *iiThe copperheads of this county had their ^Mnvention at the Court llotise on Saturday, Resided over by J. T. Stuart of Adams, iftd two Secretaries of whom A. M. Bonni fold was one. mh The ostensible object of the meeting was organize the party, at least HO said the tiils, and quite number of the members -fruui different patts of the county were pres et to do H. Curiosity to know how so difficult a piece Wbusiness was done, and what appearance tile party would present when duly or^an fited, induced ug to inquire of a few spect,a- MODUS OPERANDI. ^solutions, and while thev were out speech* ''•S were called for, but none were forthcoming °4l thia stage of the proceedings. A resolution, it seems, was finally offered "%r a member whose nafne we could not ,,?W»ni, to the effect that the Chicago Con ^ntion ought to nominate a candidate upon iPeace Platfoim. This' resolution was fol lowed by a Fpirited debate, participated in Col. Geo. Gillaspr, Maj. Temple, Mr. Briscoe, and the Chairman. The two for mer gentlemen opposed the resolution on tbe ground that such action 6n th* part of tke party in Wapello would embarrass the Chicago Convention! They maintained it would be dangerous at this early day to commit the party to any line of policy tbat it was impossible to say what would happen ir the next few weeks that Rich mond, Atlanta, and for aught they knew, New York might be taken, or VICE VERSA a»d bence, they had better wait and eee what would turn up. It might be best to have a peace platform, or it might be oboes farr to take the war shute. The mover of the resolution and the Chairman, Stuart, didn't like thia view of the subject thought a move definate and a bolder policy the more advisable, &c. Mr. .4 rBHscoe,ti' s^feech seemed to lean admirably V* sides df fne question, a very proper cfcorse for Mr B. to take, inasmuch as he be a candidate some day. Who know6? -r-The upshot of the matter was, the reso lution was voted down, and the oonventroh reeolved not to resolve at ad. The com mittee came in. but of course did not report, M»d so the Copperhead party of Wapello will watch and wait awhile on the border of peace and war. bat' ready to be one or the other or neither, as current events may de termine. The only action taken by ihe con vention, so far as WO could learn, was the adopt-on of a resolution to organize tbe par ty by appointing a central committee, but a® the appointment of a central committee did not transpire, we are unprepared to say at thia writing whether tl»« Copperhead Party of Wapello county ia in an organized w disorganized condition. What a spectacle did these Copperheads jptsent! At a time like tbit}, when their country is heaving with a convulsion threat ening almost the existence of society, they meet and solemnly decided that they have no position to take in refirence to the great, Obtest now being waged., They ara afraid to express any opinion, lest it might inter with the Chicago Convention They plainly intimate that they will be for peace )if our armies are defeated, but for war if 4bey are victorious. Tbey are ready to go .with tbe current whichever way it may flow, and wherever it may lead. Party success is nuunfc*tly what they care most about.— The organization of such a party, it seems to us, is the laot business that ought to oc cupy tbe serious attention of human beings. Oirganized or disorganized, it is a disgrace to the country, to human nature and com mon sense, and this is the judgment that will be pronounced upon it again by the (American people at the ides of November.

Her hull is marked "Tallanasse, of London, 1864 «ngine« marked C. S. 4,J A. DON'T PAV & W. Dudgen, London." She is fore and aft schooner rigged and uiounts three guns. Her crew consists of about 130 persona' including officers. Men of all natiooa are represented on board, most of whom are said to be sol diers from Lee's army. She is said to have run out of Wilmington about six days ago withou having been seen by any of Aduii ral Lee's blockade™. She has quite a quan tity of ootton on board to protect her boil ers, and there are four bundles of turpen tine on deck to be vised in firing vessels. She i* commanded by John Taylor Wood the "wreck of matter" there will not be much of Charleston left if the shelling is continued at present. Gene ral Seymour is in good spirits, confident that we are making steady progress in reducing the rebellion, and holding fast to the faith that we shall destroy it altogether. General Seymour was stationed at Char leston some two or three years before the war commenced. He, therefore had many liiOiwntul ftcqitKint&nce., (here, »ml toth.m he was indebted for generous courtesies du ring his late involuntary sUy among them. He convened with them freely about the war. He told them the North would never yield that the determination of the people Lnly was to wipe out the rebellion and save the States, bv which a ponce Democrat sKould be elected to succeed Mr. Lincoln as Presi dent. He told them that event was not like ly to ocotiv but if it did, It would be the result of a monstrous deception practiced upon the people, and they would never sub mit to such a peace as the Smith required there would be general revolution and chaos flwit. When the intelligence came that President Lincoln had made a call'for "five hundred thousand more," they were much depressed, and manifested unmistakable indications of CTnion, no matter what sacrifloes *hc pfreat fir^t th*t sn*tick her, and though she work should involve.
