President of the United States, the Com mander-in-chief of our armies and navies.— And indeed considering the composition of that convention, it would have been unrea sonable to expect anything else. A body of men composed of such materials as that was, discarded politicians of a former age, fossils of defunct organizations, men whose minds have been soured by many defeats and filled with venom by many disappoir.tments, men of whom I) dge, Jones and Mahoney from this State are fair samples,— from such men what could be expected but treason of the most unadulterated and vilest description. From the commencement of the slave hold er's rebellion thev have been in sympathy with it many have gent sons and relations to fight in its armies they have discouraged enlistments in the Union army they have threatened resistance to a draft they have discredited the National currency they have ne all they could by persistent misrepre sentation and abuse to weaken confidence in the President and all exercising civil and military trusts they have declared coercion unconstitutional and wrong they have per sistently declared that the rebels could not be conquered and have all along advocated peace and a tame surrender to armed rebel lion, by acknowledging the Southern Con federacy. That such men when meeting together in National convention should even from pru dential motives forget the past and assume even for the tiuw a new character, was not to be expected. It is true that some more prudent and politic such as Seymour and even Vallandighairj and the Woods, were more careful in the selection of their words, but the great mass, the Rynderx, Trains and the like threw offal] disguise and spoke their real sentiment*, treason of the rankest des cription. The loyal air of Chicago was made fetid with their foul ravings. And yet what a bundle of inconsistencies t|iey hjUcfied.

THE CHICAGO CONVENTION,—If any doubts existed in regard to the character and de signs of the organization which unjustly yet arrogates to itself the ancient and honorable name tf Democracy, those doubts most be dissipated by the character of the men who composed the late Chioago Convention and the sayings and doings, and the omissions to say and do on that occasion. It was to be hoped that in the present con dition of the country, an organization which is yet for good or evil a power in the land, might have included within its membership a sufficient number of men who from motives •f policy if not of patriotism and principle, might have risen to a conception of the ex isting emergency and the requirements of the times, and influenced the party to some at least seeming deference and devotion to the great principles of civil and religious liberty and the preservation of the best government on earth. Had such been the ca*e, had even any sir a II portion of that convention made an effort in the direction of pure patriotism, we are sure all truly loyal men would have rejoiced to know the tac*, and would have gladly recognized and applauded it. But such was most emphatically not the case. No evidence whatever can be found in the sayings or doings of the Chicago Con vention, that the slightest emotion of loyal iv or true patriotism animated that body either individually or collectively. In their con 'versations, in their speeches on the streets, and in their official action in the Convention you will look in vain to find one loyal, pat riotic or noble sentiment.. There was not one. They were there in force, a multitude from all parts of the country, and yet in that vast crowd not an expression was heard which hy implication could be tortured into condemnation of the infamous crew of South ern traitors, murderers of so many thousands of northern mer, our relatives, friends or neighbors, while from every throat was belched forth the vilest epithets upon the WKUDi i ti iwi. i [II iii UiHHj.* Pfffi fighting, and yet he was made the candidate of the Peace Party.

Ihe divinity of slavery and would sacraftce the nation to I perpetuate it and1 the n»an who two years ago reconvwaded" and urged a draft is put at the-head of the copperheads who threaten to oppose a drafr with force of arms, ft is true their electors if they elect any, as it was whispered they might and would, may not vote for McClellan, and they may yet set him aside by another convention, for which they provided hy adjtuirnm^ te- meet again if they choose, but that would only preserve thei* consistency by he perpetra tion of a fraud more infamous than the an nals of nymktad anywhere gives an account of. The fact is the copperhead leaders recog niaed the fact that they were in a minority, and under the lead of the Albany Regency went in for what they supposed an expedi ency candidate. McClellan, said they, is a military man and may get votes on that ac count, contrary to the ex|»e*tenceof Gen eral Tuttle on a similar occasion. We will nominate him and be governed by circum stances thereafter. It is plain we car. do nothing unless we can get power, and if we can succeed in the election by voting for one of Lincoln's hirelings why the end will jus tify the means, and when we get in we can do as we please. The scheme is a very preffy one, but they will find a slip between the cup and the lip. The American people will by their votes in November, veto the whole concern. The people are hi earnest about this war. They intend to prosecute it until a peace is coerced which will be a peace. They do not intend that tfeefe brothers and neighbors who have fought and many of them died in this war shall be dishonored they do not intend that the graves of those who lie buried in southern soil shall be trod and insulted bv insolent foreigners they ceitainly are not going to quit now on the very eve of success. They uave opened the Mississippi, they have planted the eagles in the verv heart of Geor gia,and in a few weeks they will take Rich mor d, and then as the crowning work they will re-elect honest Old Abe, who will pro ceed to reconstruct the Union upon the eter nal principles of truth justice and liberty. THE Two PLATFORM*.—The two plat forms, between which the American people will have to choose, at the ensuing election, will be found on the first page of this issue. The platform of the Union pirty, adopted at Baltimore on the 7th day of June last, will be found a manly, outspoken document, fairly and squarly meeting all the issues be fore the country, while the copperhead plat form will be found in every respect its oppo site, a wishy washy, non-committal con cern, not even alluding to secession, eoer tion, emancipation, re-construction or any other of the vital questions of the fearful times in which we I've, and only character ized by its want of loyalty, fts undisg«isd sympathy with the rebellion, and the ven om of its authors towards the Administra tion. Not one word of fault is found with Jeff. Davis, while they can scarcely find words to express their hatred towards the conKtitutional government of their country. It is a peaoe document, but what kind'of a peace and how attained otherwise than hy a base sm render to armed rehellion, it does not say. Read and compare these two doc uments, and vote for the one which will put down this rebellion, conquor a lasting peace, save and re-construct the union upon a fair and equitable basis, and root up and destroy the cause of the rebellion. ,fc ....

Jones, in connection with the escape of my prisoners. McComb and Taylor.— There never could be a charge more unjust and unfair than to attach the least blame to him in the matter. He has, as Deputy, in every particular in my absence, managed the affairs about the jail strictly in accord' ance with my directions, and any misman agement in regard to trusting the keys where ray family could have access to them is attributable to no one but myself, ard any effort to implicate him in the matter is got ten up for no other than political purposes by designing men or want of knowledge of the facts, and I sincerely hope that at least no friend of mine or his will suffer them selves to be prejudiced by the«e false im pressions that are afloat. have no desire that any other person should bear any part of the blame for the neglect or proper pre caution in keeping the keys out of reach of tbe bff* G.

Mr. Wentworth represented that District, then much larger than it now is, three terms in succession, being first elected in 1843. He was then a democrat. In the best significa tion of the term, he is a democrat still.— What kind of a democrat he is will be seen by reading his speech in reply to Vallandig ham, delivered in Chicago last week, and printed on the first pajre of this paper.

The Cup!life of Atlanta.' NEW YOKK, Sept. 3. The FTerahTs Washington special, Sep tember 2d, says vThcre is great rejoicing in Washington over the news that Atlanta is in our possession. It appears that while the rebel cavalry hive been operating upon Sherman's rear, that officer has been pro ceeding with, hia movements successfully, at 11 o'clock this morning entered the city of Atlanta and found that his combinations had compelled its evacuation by Hood. The transmission of this intelligenoe over the wires, which have boca cut for several days, proves that Rousseau has been successful in his efforts to dislodge the cavalry expedition of Forrest, Wheeler and Morgan, and frwen them from the road. "The capture of Atlanta secures the pos session of the whole State of Georgia, and renders the condition of the rebel leaders more desperate than ever before, Ifc was by an apparent retreat—one of those masterly strategic movements for which Sherman has been noted—that he has been enabled to achieve so briifeianA a result. "It is now well known that Hood has ad ded materially to his strength by a conscrip tion of numerous boys and old men, who, behind the works, could render very good service. Outside of the works, this very strength would prove a great weakness and a terrible cost of powder and provender.— The purpose of Sherman in the movement which besran on the night of the 26th, was to deprive the rebel commander cf this strength and his protection of the works at Atlanta. Tn other words, Sherman hoped^by flanking Atlanta, and cutting off his supplies, to force Hood out to fight, and thus, with hia largely preponderating force of veteran troops, to whip him in an opon field. With this view, Sherman moved orv'the night in question with 20 day's rations and all his array, ex cept the 20th Corps (SJocnm's), which had been withdrawn from the front of Atlanta to the Chattahoochee bridge, there to remain as a corps of observation, and to occupy Atlanta in the event of Hood abandoning it, and also employed to look after the communications and hurry forward by wulroad supplies to whatever new position Sherman might as sume. The army is reported to have moved in the following order: 23d Corp*, (Scho field's,) in the advance, followed by the 14th (Davis'), the 15th Logan's), the 16th (Ran som's), the 17th (Blair's), and the 4th (Stan ley's), in the order named, all making a flank movement, with strong skirmish lines on either flank and in the front and rear. East Point was left to the east, and at dawn Sherman found Hood gone." Official Dfapsitthee* WAR T)F.PARTMRNT.) WASHINGTON, September 2.

An unofficial dispatch received by this Depart ment this morning from Lexington states that Gen. Gillen had an official report of the surprise and defeat of Morgan at Greenville that John Morgan was killed and his staff captured from 50 to 100 rebels killed, 70 prisoners taken and one gun captured. This report being confirmed by the Rich mond pancrs, there is no room to doubt its truth. In honor of the capture of Atlanta, Gen. Grant yesterday ordered a salute to be fired with shott guns from every battery bearing on the enemy. Nothing has been received by the Depart ment from Atlanta since the 4th inst., r.or anythin south of Nashville on account of the derangement of the telegraph line by the prevailing storm. No movements of importance have taken place in the Shenandoah valley. (Signed,) E.M.STANTON, Sec'y of War. PASS HIM ROUND.—An itinerant printer, calling him«elf Frank Seaman, who pretend ed to hail from Davenport, on Saturday night last stole several article a of clothing, and $11 in monev, from some of the com positors of this office, and then left town.

The press will do well to look out for him, as he is a scoundrel and a thief.— Hywk-Eye, Burlington. The Hawk-Eye says the demonstration at Burlington upon Saturday night over the capture of Atlanta, was one of the largest and most enthusiastic ever held in that city. Speeches were made by Henry W.

The interest is payable on the first jday of March and Septembei in each year. As these bonds are exempt from municipal or State Itaxation, their value is increased from one to three per cent per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country.

They c*n be converted into money at any moment, and the holder will have the benefit of the interest. Subscribers to this loan tvi|l have the option cf having their Bonds draw Interest from irch 1st, by paying the accrued interest In coin—(or in Uni ted States notes, or the notes of the National Banks, adding fifty per cent for premium,) or receive thein drawing interest from the date of subscription and deposit.
