Mr. Himuicutt, recently ol Fredericksburg, Va., made a thrilling and pa triolic speech, which was rapturously ap plauded. Before the speech of Mr. Hunnicutt, on motion of Mr. Sargent, of Washington, HON. SAMUEL CONY was nominated for re-election by acclamation, amid great enthusiasm, the Convention giv ing three cheers and the baud playing Yankee Doodle. [Here the reporter would remark that the splendid Baud of the 17th U. S. In fantry, at Fort Preble, accompanied the extra train from Portland to Augusta, and their fln< music, artistically performed, added much It the pleasures and festivities ol the occasion.] On motion of .Mr. Clay, of Gardiner, Messr Clay, of Gardiner, Sargent, of Machias, and Goodenow, of Alfred, were appointed to wall M Got. Cony, Inform him of his nomination, and request his presence before the Conten- , tlon immediately. Tbe committee to nominate Electors at Large, reported through Mr. Farwell, of Cnozi tbe names of John B. Brows, Portland, and Abner Stetson, Damarlscotta. The report was unanimously adopted, and the gentlemen named were nominated for In public os in private affairs, there is no duly more difficult thin obedience to the scrip tural injunction to “Let patience have her per fect work.” It is so much easier to act than j to wait. People who under the stimulus ofan active emergency, are sensible, cool and judi cious when compelled to fall back and await ibe ripening of events beyond their control, become impatient, childish and unreasonable. This truth has seldom been more observable than now. We stand on the threshold of great events. The sky is full of portents, and the bush of expectation iu the air. Two cam paigns *r* already iu progress, the,results of which cannot fail to be of the highest impor tance, not alone to our beloved country, but to all inaukind, now, and in coming time. Gen. Grant, standing on the vantage ground which be has gained by approaches so steady and skillful, is coolly preparing to deal his ad versary what bo intends shall he a final and deadly blow. The shock of battle cannot be long delayed, and its resuit is to decide wheth er we are to hope for an early and lasting peace, or whether we are to brace ourselves for a new conllict with this hideous monster of rebellion which seeks the nation's life. In the North, too, a conllict equally momen tous is already begun; one of those fierce but bloodless contests which In their extent and in tensity aro seen only iu this country. Just at present, perhaps, the absorbing luterest of the military question thrusts this other somewhat out of sight. Yet its importance must soon assert Itself; auJ every inch of the field will be contested with a grim tenacity surpassing, , perhaps, all previous encounters. For the is sue It one of tremendous moment. it is Freedom and Sftvery joining In the death grapple. It Is the hand-to-hand conflict be tween the powers of Darkness and of Light. By its result the American people are to de clare whether they are willing to renounce the glorious principles for which their, fathers wrought, or whether they are ready to re-af iirrn them to the death, iu the face of every trsilor. And while in the military and In the polili ea! world such forces are gathering to the on set. the financial ipjcstion becomes hourly njore jressiug. In saying this we do not mean to 1 oln in the outcry of those who are propbesy ng for us all kiuds of financial disaster, who -ell us that gold is steadily mounting and pa «r currency will soon Lie good lor nothing, hat trade and industry will be paralyzed, and hat universal bankruptcy and general atarva ion are just at hand, buch direful proguos ics are Irom oue of two sources, eithrr the niUcious misrepresentations of those whose 1 sign is to cause disaffection or paiiir", or from . le eaaggerated fear of the nervous and over im'.d. We earnestly beg ot alt good people not to dlow themselves to be frightened out of their elf-possession. It is ipiite true that gold is lancing up and down in the most eccentric nanner, and that from over inflation and oth- , r causes, the paper currency is depreciated; mt it is also true that business is unusually ;ood, that trade flourishes and manufactures ncrease, that wages are high, and sgricullurai iroducU command the best prices, and that In pile of all unfavorable circumstances, mer ■haats, me lufacuirera and farmers are grow ing rich. It is also true that the gold la the ■ounlry is but a minute portion of the nation’s present wealth, a barely appreciable per-ceut ige of it in lact, and that the greatest resour ea of wealth arc as yet almost untouched. For Uree years past the nation has not staggered iud groanel under the burden of war. It has ifted that dread burden lightly ou its young kilos shoulders, and borne It onward with the •asy, elastic consciousness of a reserved • treugth which is eijual to ail em-jrguneies. Hut with all these facts in our favor, which we enumerate for the benefit of the timorous, it must be admitted that there is in our midst tn element of danger which we are too much nclined to overlook. This Is the Insane spirit if speculation and extravance which seems to i«ve seized on all classes of the community, nd which manifests itself in almost every de isrtment of life. Kotwiib'ibuiding the high urice of gold an I the depreciated currency, here Is s recklessness of expansion In all the circles of busbies; which touches the verge of _I-,..., Tl.„ II .1.„ r... •ources of the country which resfllts from war s in a measure compensated by the stimulus it lives to new forms of Industry, and the open ing ol uew channels of trade, and so we hare t continuance ol prosperity; but If these ad vantages are to lie pushed beyond their natur il bounds, if this prosperity is to grow fever ish and giddy, the disastrous consequences cannot be averted. We seem to see a glaring red light out ahead, sure signal of au inevita ole destruction if this headlong speed is to be maintained. Lot business men take warning m time. And this folly is not caudued to the circles ot trade. It manifests itself in a lavish nest of private expenditure such as we have never seeu. The demand for luxuries was hev- j er greater; the haunts of pleasure, and the places of amusement were never so full; the rivalry oi lashlouatile display never more ea ger. Extravagance rules the hour. Ifiu these unsettled times such a course It censurable for its imprudence, what sltali we say of its heart essuest ? When the nation’s life hangs tremb ling in the balance, when anguiah and mourn ing are in so many homes, when so many thou •and* of our sous aud brothers on hospital beds, In lonely night-watches, in the thick of he<!eadly charge, are offering up their lives or ot, Is it lit that we whose safety U purch ased by their sacrifices should give ourselves over to pleasure and display ? Much ridicule hat been expended on the efforts of* certain ladies to effect a reform by abstaining from the use of imported luxuries. But before we sneer at their perhaps misdirected effbrt It would he well for us to emulate the spirit ot modest self-sacrifice by which they have been moved. Seeking to remedy the diseases of our social state, if they have not fully reached the truth, it Is certain that they have come very near it. What we want is not an entire dis use of certain articles but an economy which shall penetrate all the departments of life. Not j only prudence but common humanity demand , this of us. It is of no use for men to waste their breath in raiiiug at the gorcrument. Despite what < the panic-makers tell us, the source of their peril Is not tbu government, which, at present, 10 far from increasing, is greatly curtailing its ! issues. Tlie danger and tire remedy lie with 1 the people. A rigid ecouomy, supported by a rigorous arid equitable taxation, constitutes lhat remedy, and if we apply it resolutely we are safe. Let us cultivate moderation and sobriety not only iu our expenditures, but in our plans, our hopes aud our fears. No need to be Irighteued by the prophets of evil. The cause of the nation iu this contest is the cause of God. While we keep the issue pure and sim ple, uncorrupted by considerations of selfish policy or greed, fie will sustain His own.— But the struggle, arid the patieuce, and the sacrifice are our part, and lie will exact of us its failhiui performance. We forget whether it was Cromwell or one of his generals who grimly exhorted his followers to “trust in God, hut to keep their po under dry." That is precisely our duty at prescut. Belying on the righteousness of our cause, we may confi dently ask God's blessing upon it so long as we do not by our roily and rashness haxard its success. But the mad haste to grow rich by questionable means, lire shallow vanity which seeks to display mere wealth, the giddy race after pleasure, and the rivalry of fashion are not only aims most unworthy of a time like this, but they are a wetting of our powder which may expose us to the greatest danger-. Epsiixts. One of the Correspondents. “Granite,” a correspondent of the “ Union (X. II.) Democrat”! writing from our city, says some good tilings and some had. Speak ing of our ladies, he gays: lu proportion to its population this city has more Due-looking women, dressed neatly aDd tastefully—not gaudily—than any other in New Eugland. That is true as holy writ. The following is •laDder: l’iety here consists (1) in having good clothes,18) in going to church on ijnnday to show them, and (3) in the free use of tobacco. When he penned what follows he probably had been imbibing freely with some pot com-, panions at their expense, lie ought to know better than to partake of the “abundance of all kiuds of liquors,” even if it is given to him: This a very temperate city. Temperance here consists (l) iu this beiug the birib place of the Maine Law, as the Garden of Eden was the cradle of ‘original sin,'and (8) iu haviug an abundance of all kiuds of liquors. Of his political frieuds be discoursea in the following strain: Tlie city has some active working Demo crats, of the adamantine stripe, who stand the wear and tear of all climes and all weathers. He might have added, “and of their con sciences,” and inserted copperhead between the words adamantine and stripe, and then the sentence would have been more complete and better expressed the afllnity he has with such politicians, for “Gianite” Is undoubtedly a copperhead of the .South Carolina stripe. We trust he did not come here with “baited hook” as a fortune hunter; if so, he must have been severely snubbed. But hear him dis course on this kind of angling: Among the “upper classes" uot a few, amia ble, pretty, accomplished, with a few thousands in their “own right or otherwise,” are without husbauds, because oue da-s of our independ ent young men do not relish the ideaofbecom ing a lady's usher and ina i of all work. Aud another class are afraid to cast their hooks in such elevated quarters. There, Mr. Granite, we have given you more space than you really deserve. The next time you visit the “Forest City” we hope you Will come in better humor, and avoid all places of temptation, it is said by those who have tried it, that “mixing liquors” greatly obfuscates Ibc brain. Military Hospitals. To the Editor qf the Tret a: Having had occasion to visit De Camp Hospital, David’s Island, New York, I thought a few remarks and directions, might be of interest to those, having friends there, or else where, in or about New York. The first step necessary is to proceed to the office of the Medical Director of Transportation, (Dr. Hoff.) and procure a pass. On Tuesday and Thursday, the regular visiting days, the Gov ernment boat “Thomas F. Way,” leaves at 10 o'clock. Persons having puses travel frea of charge. Arcc-s to David’s Island may be bad also by way of the New Haven cars> car of filst and 4lh Avenues, lo new Kockelle, ther.ce by stage and ferry. Fare through, 80 ets. With regard to conveyance to the other Hospitals, inlormatiou may be obtained at the Office, at the Battery, near Castie Garden, l'rrhaps a few words with regard to the man agement of these institutions, may not he out of place. Through the kind courtesy of Surgeons McDougel, Medical Director of the Department of the East, Hoff, Medical Di rector of Transportations, Webster, Chief Surgeon of I)e Camp Hospital, Cutter, of Newark Hospital, aud their several staffs aud assistants, 1 was enabled to witness the work ings of the system. And I here declare upon my honor as a man, that I was never more happily disappointed. Everything that the broadest philanthropy, aided by boundless re sources, can do for the welfare of tbe wound ed soldiers is done. I also witnessed very many Important opera tions, but not one that I could not myself have submitted to, under like circumstances. I make this statement entirely unsolicited on the part of any—solely to relieve the anxiety of those having friends there. I shall always look hack to my visit as one of the bright spots of my life, ami hardly know which most to admire, the heroic fortitude o( the patients, or the professional skill aud lofty humanity displayed by lira S rrgeous. Should any of your readers find it convenient whilst in New Yolk, 1 have no doubt they would be well re paid for the visit. Respectfully yours, Dr. I. R. Load, Norway, (Me.) (formerly ol Portland.) A House ok Moubm.no Tubbed into one ok Joy.—In one of'the recent battles of Virginia, -ays the Boston Traveller, an officer in one of the Massachusetts regiment* was re ported in a Boston paper as having been kill ed, aud it is also stated that he was buried oil the Held. The officer, who was seriously wouuded, read the account of his death In line of the Washington hospitals, and as soon as be was able, obtained leave of absence and started for home. Here he ascertained that his relatives, relying upon the first statement, weie in mourning for his death. 'She cligct of hi* sudden appearance among his friends cau hardly be imagined. Hi* mother was usually feeble, and the belief that her son was dead had well nigh prostrated her. The reaction proved almost too much for her, but she afterwards rallied aud the house of mourn ing was turned into one of joy. The relatives had never received a denial of hi* death, al though it is said cine was made soon after ha was reported killed. • canal boat laden with coal oil was burned near bordentuwn, N.

It will not be denied that this gentleman is one of tba most able, most plausible, and most practical Copperheads in the country, and yet he makes,as ail Copperheads must, some egre gious blunders. Under a flimsy veil of loyal ty, and with great professions of liberality ol sentiment and a pretended desire for the free dom of speech and ofthe press, he has cunning ly sought to bring the State of New York into collision with the Federal Authorities on ac count ofthe transciantsuspension ofthe World and Journal of Commerce. The Governor very adroitly prepared the way for this collis ion of State with Federal authorities, hut hia cunningly devised plan has most signally fail ed. The Grand Jury, before whom the case waa brought, have decided that it ^“inexpedi ent to examine into the subject.’’ This was a blow, and an unexpected one, directly betweau the Governor’s eyes, and produced, no doubt, a very unpleasant sensation. It would cow setm that the World irtid the Journal of Com merce have no other resource, than to set them selves up, in the lauguage of the forged proc lamation which brought them to grief, ns “the great mouumeutal sufferers of the nineteenth ceutury.’’ Gov. Seymour must try some other expedient betore he can briug about that col lision which seems to be so uear his heart. The New York jurors possess too much of what Guizot calls the “geuius of common sense" to lie made tools of by Gov. Seymour or any other Copperhead. Protestant Pupils in Convents The Montreal Witness gives an account of a great display at the Villa Maria o'r Monk lands Consent, which took place the 8th of December, being the day of the immaculate conception of the Virgin. The most promi nent affair on the occasion was a magnificent tableau vicant of the immaculate conception. The Virgin was represented by a very hand some young woman in the attitude usual in the various pictures on the suhjuct. Around her, and beneath her feet were numerous an gels, selected from the prettiest girls of the semiuary. The show was spienld and highly gratifying to all, especially to the performers. The chief part, and that moat satisfactory to female van ity, was that of personifying the Holy Vir gin. A young Ameilcao girl, heretic as they call such, was selected to perform this role.— She was sent there to learn French, and not to become a nun. The good nuns did not miscalculate as to the moral effect on the heart of the American girl, of making her the chief point of attraction at such a public display. They boast now of her conversion, snd she has been admitted to the Church with great pomp and ceremony. Her parents arc “money-making Yankee*.’’ The Montreal Witness says the result of all tbla will he, that the daughter will lose her re gard for her parents. Woinded Maine Soldiers.—A private letter from Capt S. L. Allen, dated, City Point June 20lh, an extract from which U published in the Bath Times, contains tho following in formation in relation to Maiue wounded sol diers in that hospiral: Aibiou Keuuerson of tliii city, a member of Co. D, 3d Maine reg iment, has had bis right leg amputated below the knee, he Is doing well and In good spirits; Daniel Brookings of Gardiner, Co. C, Sd Maine, leg amputated In about the same place, alto doing well; Augustus F. Emery is wounded in th* hip and Hartwell Hatch wounded lu thumb, both of the old 3d Maiue. Mr. Xocktoo, of Co. G, 32nd Maiue regiment is sick. Mr. Alien states, “ wounded began to come in yesterday morning. There are about two thousand here now, and more to come in. We happened to have a lot of goods with us, which was very lucky indeed as the other ag enda* had their own tranaports, and they do not know whan they will arrive. There ate more Maine ttufe here than from any other State, I believe.” The Point Well Stated. The Nashville (Tenn.) Union brings the question forcibly home to thoae at the North calling Ihcmeelve* “conservatives,’’in the fol lowing manner: “We are for the negro where he is,” say the conservative*. Very well, lut us see where tile negro is. He is at work on rebel forts and entrenchment*; he Is ou the plantations rais ing meat and breadstuff* for the rebel aruiy; he Is lu the factory weaving butter-nut jeans for the rebel aoldiers; he is in the foundries casting rebel cannon; he is in the shop mak ing rebel shoes, hats, sabres, bridles and sad dles; he is in the camp waiting ou rebel oltl cera; be la lu the fort working rebel guns,and he is in guerilla bands to murder Union men. Uaii ice better not take the negro into our handt, or do you prefer to let the uugro stay where he la, and aid powerfully in destroying the government?” High Prices—The True Cause. It ie quite the custom Just now to attribute the present high prices to an expanded cur rency. We are IlippaulJy told that this is the one cause of commercial deraugement, and that if the curreucy were only reduced to the standard ol three years ago, prices would come dowu iu the tame proportiou. J.el us think a moment, aud we shall see the utter absurdity of such a conclusion. No matter what it iho medium for making exchanges, or what it curreucy or what D lawful money— whether it be gold, or bank notes, or treasury notes—tour prices always were aud always must be high prices. Europe learned it doting her Napoleonic wars; we learned it iu the war of lbl2, aud the same stein teacher com pels us to submit to it now. The reason is clear aid simple. Production is diminished, aud, by the waste of war, cousumpuou is in creased. The war draws the fsrmer’s sons from lire plow, and fewer acres are sown and smaller harvests ate reaped. The mechanic aits suffer in the same proportion. Scarcely less than iwo-llfths of our adult male popula lion are now devoting ail their lime and ener gy to putting dowu the rebellion, Of these, a vast number are iu the Held with our brave geuerals, a large part mau our ships of war, now couuled by hundred*, and many are iu hospitals; while those employed in (he navy yaids, irou-works, machine-shops, and iu the manufacture of military clothing and equip ments, and iu producing munitions and sup p ies, swell the aggregate to the limit we have named. This great class of producers cannot be withdrawn from their ordiuary pursuits without a great diminution iu the products ol j the country. When the supply is greatly di tuinished, aud the demand nut only continued but increased, prices must advance. There is no possible help for it. If we could return to a specie basis to-morrow, it would still be a war basis, at war prices. There is but oue exception to this advauce iu prices, aud that is the Government bonds, and they are no exception to the rule, and only follow the general law of supply and de maud The necessities of war have made them abundant, aud therefore they are cheap hut when the war ends the supply will cea e aud they will be dear—and the man who in vests In them now is sure of a liberal profit. A reduction of the currei cy will be well. ! and wu have the official assurance of the Sec retary of tha Treasury that it is now taking place, but it is not the infallible panacea for financial disorder that many suppose. Ur. Cisco, the Assistant Treasurer of the United Stales at New York, states that he has caucel led forty-on* millions oflnterest bearing legal tender* withlu two weeks, and that he now holds thirty millions of greenbacks—and yel bread aud butter, wheat aud corn and cloth are no cheaper. The first cause of the increased cost of all commodities, gold included, is altogether out side of Hie currency. A reduudaut currency Increases the misfortune, but does not create It. Hut suppose the Government does con tract the curreucy; what is to prevent the State hanks, that give no security for circula tion, from quadrupling tlietr paper Issues, as they have already doue iu many parts of the •ouutry ? What, theu, can be more absurd than to main the Government or Treasury Depart ment the scape-goat for evils that are simply consequent upon the most gigantic war the world ever knew.
