This body, which was originally appoint ted to meet on the 4'h of July, meets in Ch 'Ago'on next Monday, the 29th mst., titt being the Uy to which it was ad jour ted by the National Committee. The day at first selected being the birth day of A nerican Independence, was deemed un §u Ub!e, as it truly was for such i uniting and the birth day of Benedict Arnold was selected as one in every respect fit and proper, for the work of destroying the American Union, which that oonvention has in view. The indications are that the convention will be largely attended. The Chicago pa pers Rtate that the larjre accomodation* ot their •tumerous Hotels have beeo enj^ed and that the arrival of delegates have al r.ady comrponced. Of courae it U not the possible to anticipate result of the convention. Numerous candidate*, among whom are McClellan. Vallandigham. Guthrie, Ex President Fill more, Go*. Seymour, Ex President Pierce, Judge Woodward and otheFg are Gen. Fremont spoken of. has not been mueb Talked of for some weeks. A lively and exciting contest in the oon vention is looked for, not only from the fact of there being so many rival candidates, but from a radical difference of views which will prevail. There are, it seems, ro well defined and genuine kinds of copperheads, the one known as peace democrats and the other war democrats. The war men are for Met'lellan first, last and all the time.— It is not so clear who the peace men are fo*, their discussions having been more con fine to their secret aooiefec but it is sup pisei that Valhndisham. the martyr, i* the man thev have in^vielrj that they will unite upon him and control the nomination and th jpiatftrin. They may, however, fail to agree and break up in a row* JP^rhaps the Jater is as likely a supposition as ai»y.\ The Chicago coovention, whatever its to* xi hi n.arj-- w—Uttftwer it may nominate and whatever sentimen's it nnj' i"—w,p Will Ve atfVtriouK ft conglomtri'e of elements a? the *»er saw, and although they wi'l undoubtedly unite in hatred to the Un ion cause an i the coverirpent of tl eir country, and be inspired in no small decree by a desire for the spoils of office, yrt in all else what a Motley crowd they will be.

But we shall sojn know all about it, and matters little, what they do and who thev laminate, except so fir as it will give the Union men of the country something tan l^ible to deal with, which is desirable Heretofore we have been fi hting wc knew not exactly wh't.

I ^i!l give a few instancas of toi-'r dreadful «••»', which took t»!ace in the immediate neighborhood wh -r" I reside. Ahnirt the 10th of July, Bill Anderson with thirty bn-hwhank»rs. ent red the coun ty-seat of Randolph county, (Hnntsville^ and robbed and carried away $80,000 mos'5 ly in gold and silver also from three to four thousand do'Krs worth of dry ods, and killed one man, belonging to St. Louis, and then left for th«Hr dens, in the Peroiar. hill's, where our troops can not reach them. One week afterwards they returned, and after driving all the Union men out of the place, they went to the houee of judge Dany, who is about C7 years old, and dragged him from his door to the brush and. told him that he ha* to he hurvgnr inform theiu whore hi,* son (the Colonel) was, for they had some important business with him. The Julge aaid he did not know where was, he was not at home. Th*y then hung him to a sapling for a short time, then let him down, and questioned him again concerning his son's whereabout'. He refined to give the Infor •nation, and said, I know you wish to kill him. and I cannot imbrue my hands io the blond of mv own son. They then hung him up the second tim°, and let h'tn hang until was almost extirct, and then cut him down and kicked and rolled him about until they got him aroused sufficiently to talk.— They then said, "you must tell us where your gin is or \ye will hinj V"U again, and you will have to cut yourself down In answer the Judge said "Men, tf I may call you so. you cannot, should you take mv life, cheat me out of many diys, for I am old and feeble. I shall not give you any tnf »rma tion concerning my son Whereup they hung him the thiid time and finished their work of murder. After loading their horses and mules with goods, oat of the stores, they left for their dens in the hills A few days later, there trie into Macon countv some thirty or forty gucrriil.is, head ed by Capt. Pitn?y, a notorious rebel, and shot and scalped two Union men, and left them hy the road side. On Sunday, Aug. 3d, Bill Anderson with some thirty of his gang entered College Mound township, rode op in front of a meeting-house in which a protracted meet ing was b^ing he'd, and ordered every male, old and young, to i-otne out and form in lima in front of tho house. Tho order was obeyed He then ordered all those who favored the South to move two paces in front. This "be ing done it. was seen that only seven men wrre found to stand their ground for the North. The»e weie ordffed to s'ep three paoes \n fiont of the others, and to stand fast. Anderson then ordered the preacher and people to go hack into the chu ch and attend to their busine-s—V wanted no more of them. He then ordered his men to shave the head* of th -se Union men, which was done. They WM-e then stripped of their clothes to their shitts, tied together two and two and severely whipped, in full view of the whole congregation. They wer* then loosed and ordered to skedaddle, and never to he seen again on penalty of death. Thev then mounted their horses and with a yell put for the brush. Many more instances I could relate, but are too vulgar and barbarous to put in pub print.

Enly this tiiorning theenemy made a vigorous attack n i iho 5th corps on the left of Wcldon. Thay were partially successful Friday, hut to-day they met wi-h a different reception. Our line was farmed about th.* same time as it was on that day. tlie fir»l division being on the e* treme left conned ing with cavalrv which covered the Rai'road towards Reams Sta. tion. The 3d Division was next, Cutler's 4th division was across the Railroad and the 8d division, Crawfords, right joining with the 9ih eorp*f whioh connected the right wtth the left near Jerusalem plank road During Saturday our nvm had strengthened the breastworks which thev had tempo-arily erected, b. sides thro*vinjr up others. Early this rning very heavy cannonading was opened by the enemy from their works further diwn towards Pe tersburg, and our guns replied very briskly, neither party however doing particular damage. About 7 a. a force of the en emy were being moved as if to attack the 9th corps, but a lew we'l directed she'll* sent them out of ,ight Shortly af er a column of rebels emern from the woods on the left of the Railr tad and forming in lin\ charged on what they thought our left flank, but which proved to lie the left ofGer,. Avres fiont. The rebels advanced in fine sh 1 and with the utmost confidence, evidently thinking thi work before them easy, but what was their surprise on dis covering a second line behind and extend ing to the left of the first, from which a row of bavonets glmtenod, with a battery on th»ir left and one on the right pourir.g a fire into thiir ranks, every disobarge caus. ing large vacancies in their lines. As soon as they discovered the critical position in which they were placed, the en tire command made s:gns to indicate their willingness to surrender, and the order to cease firing pa^ed n|ons th* breastworks, but as soon :is they discovered this, a large' portion of them broke and started for the woods, the remainder coming in and sur rend. ring. Our hattqries sf-nt several mes sen iers after the remaining party, many of whom fell. The troops who i ade this charge con sifted of the rebel divisions of Hooke and Bushrod Johnson, of Qr»n. Hdl's corps, and w«re principally South Carolinians and i s s i s s i i a n a 1 Among tlie prisoners a*» Colon three Lieutenant Colonels, and thirty-seven Captains and Lieutenants. Our loss in killed and wounded is about 150, while nearly lf»0 were taken prisoners. The rebel loss is believed to b? at least 500 or 600 killed an 1 wounded. The number of rebel prisoners taken is about 37'5. ah ut 25 of whoss are wounded arnj fn the hospi tals. Gen. Hazard minanded the ^ssauling column, and wa^ shot by Capt Dal'y, of Gen Cuttlei's staff Gen. Hazard was seen to fall from his rse, and is la-Iieved to be killed. His body lies between the line a, and is cvered by sharpshooters from both sides, so that noithar can get posses sion of it. Prisoners also report him killed. We took 5 setis of colors, and some say ipore. The 3d Delaware took 2 and the 7«'nb New Yoik «ne three of the colors are entirely uew, while the others are muc i dilapidittd. In the tignt on Fndiy our loss in pri oners is believed to be larger than heiet fore reported. The 90th Pa. was more than halt taken, as was the case in (set with all the regiment* ol »e brigade. The 10-itb N. Y. lost every officer on ih« and mm louater bs^oompaiatiraly 'ew men for duty. Had these troops heid their position, or changed their front, and some di»l. they could nearly all have saved themselves and g'ven tha enemy a sound thrashing, hut being told they were flunked, they started for the tear atul fell info the aims ,f the rebels. Col.
