Bun Boat McClellau agaiust imputations of coward ice, has put Into the Malvern Hill ease the tes timony of that General before the Committee on the conduct of the war. But In doing this that paper has been guilty, innocently or wil fully, of suppressing a material portion ot the testimony. Here is what the Argus says: Gen. McClellan’s TestimOht.—When Gen. McClellau was ou the stand as a witness before the committee on the conduct of the war, he was questioned whether he was on the Eround at the terrible battle of Malvern Hill. Its reply was as follows: "I was on the ground very shortly after da; tight, ; and. I pie.ume, oeouplod some four hours In riding , orer tue po»idon J wasagain ou tbeground in the af'ernoon—I should think somewhere about two or hslf-puttwo o’etook—and was over >ho whale poll* Uon again at that time." This was his published teatimony. Its truth has never been questioned by any one present on that field Of blood, and ot glory to our arms; it has been questioned only by hired defamer* and villiflere who were not on the field. How the above is very emphatic, but before the Argus put its foot down bo flatly, It would have done well to consider an ancient sacred provarb: “He that is first in his own cause, seameth just, but Ms neighbor cometh and searcheth him.” The Argus must not muti late the record, aud expect to go unexposed. Gen. McClellan did say what is quoted above, but he said more, aud some things la that testimony he admitted he had forgotten, and it is what he confessed be did not know and some things which he did say but which are omitted by the Argus, that are sufficient to satisfy any reasonable mind that he not on ly was not in the Malvern Hill fight, but that he'was, during the fight, at a'sale distance. Here is the testimony, copied from the re cord, and we ask the reader to compare it with the above from the Argus, and res how carefiil that paper has been to keep out of sight the material portions of the testimo ny:— Question. At what hour in the morning were you on the field at the time of the Battle : of Malvern Hul, and at what time did you j leave? Auswer. I was on the ground very shortly after dayligh’, aud, 1 presume, occupied some four hours m riding orer the position. I was again on the ground In the afternoon—I should think somewhere about 2 or half past 2 o’clock —aud was orer the whole position again at that time. A r\JuJ i Question. Bad the fighting commenced in ' the morning before you left t Auswer. No strt no enemy in tight. Question. At what point or points were you i from the time you left the field until returned? Answer. I was at headquarters near Max ell's house. Q lestiau. Were yon down to the river, or j on hoard the gunboat during any part of that i dau. between the time unit Left, the Aet,t nn,l I your return to « f Answer. I do not remember; it i» possible I may have been as my camp was directly on ! the river. Question. How far was the gunboat from j Hawaii's ? Answer. There were generally some gun boat# in the immediate vicinity oi Haxalr*. j Question. How far was that fiom where the Heaviest fighting was during the day ? Answer. From Haxall’s to the point where the heaviest fighting was, I suppose mas tioo i miles and a half or three miles. There were | parts of our tide that were within a half a mile, 1 probably, or less than that, ot the headquar ters. Mark that! Gen. McClellan under oath, 1 "cannot remember" whether he was fhr off on board a gunboat while his army was bravely fighting in the field. Thinks it possible he > "may have been.” Is it not a little singular i that a Commanding General eould not remem ber where he was on the eventful day When his noble army was fighting and winning a j great battle. If he could have denied that he was on the gunboat, would he not? But he knew the fact was capable of proof and dared not deny it. While our hand Is in, we may as well go a step farther, and supply a few qf the links of testimony which^Gqn. McClellan’s defective memory fails to furnfth. We have not the Priuce do JolnvlHe’s testimony in this tqaHer; V we had we should sutely introduce \i. But we will Introduce a witness of the highest re spectability ; General Barnard, who was Me-1 Clellan’s Chief F.ugineer.a* he is now Chief Engineer oi the Army of the Potomac before Petersburg. t Gen. Bernard, in his review of the Peninsu lar Campaign, In which he was Englneer-in Chlef, and at McClellan’s right hand, says, on page 44, when speaking of the great battle of the 30ib: n was an eventful point; central too, to the general position of the army. Where was the Commanding General during this bat ue? A.t the enereme led, and fora coneid •raole portion or the Umo on a gunboat.” . McClellan confirms this statement of his En gineer on page 135 of his report; and on page 138 he says: “it was very lata at night before mv aids re turned to give me the results of the dlv*s fteht Ka°i™.”,le WU°16 UDe'*nd ‘he ltu® PO^rion Keferiug to this statement, Chtof-EagVuecr Barnard says: “It may well be doubted whether, iB the recorded dispatches of military commanders a parallel to this extraordinary avowal can be found. We supposed it the especial business of a General, to know, at each moment,‘the true I position of affairs,’and to have some agency j in ruliug it. Here we dad the'day’s fighting’ I all done, the results—for belter or worse—ac complished, and ‘very late at night’ the Com manding General just learning about them!” Rev. Dr. Marks In his History of the Penin sular Campaign—Dr. Marks was a chaplain In McClellan’s Army—says, page 298: “The CommandOT-to-Chlef was evidently oppressed with the deepest solicitude, for he accompanied the Prince [de Joinviile] and his nephew, to the wcu-steamer,and remained on board till late in the qflernoon, communicat ing his orders by signals and couriers. Dr. James Rogers, Brigade Surgeon of Koblnsou’s' Brigade, who has been ill of fern for several days,was likewise ofl this steamer •R after ward related to me the events and scenes of that day as they came under his eye. He said Gen McClellan was evidently laboring under the deepest depression, and apprehended the worst results. Bat about 4 o clock a despatch came from Gen. Marcy. saying that our army was holding the enemy at bay at all points,and in all probability would drive him from tho field. This message seemed to lift an immense burden off the heart of the General, and he arose and walked ^ the deck with a buoyant step; and from this time evidently listened to the battle with new hope. But about 5 o’clock the Commanding General rode into tho lines of our armv and remained until the action clos ed. Gen. Heintzelra&n had sent to him a mes sage that the troops noticed h!s absence, and it was exerting a depressing influence on •hem; and he could not be answerable for the consequences if he longer held himself so far aloof from the scene of action and of danger." Commenting on this battle, Gen. Barnard j aays,page46: j -me army was saved in spue 01 CleUan’s ignorance of the ‘position of adaits aud ‘results of the day’s fighting,’ *od conse quent incapacity to give intelligent orders. In’t&e foregolng Dr. Marks refers, we think, to the battle of White Oak Swamp, which was the day before the battle of Malvern Hall. Re ferring specifically to the latter battle, Gen. Barnard ask* *°d answersas foifofs: “Where, this day, is the Commanding Gen eral? Off with Capt. Rogers to select the final position or the army aud its depots. He does not tell us that it was on a gunboat, and that this day not even ‘signals’ would keep him in communication with his army, for his journey was ten or fifteen miles down the river, and he was thus absent till late In the afternoon.— This is the first time we ever had reason to believe that the highest and first duty of a Geueral, on the day of battle, was separating himself from-fcis army.to-racounolter a place of retreat.” Any candid n in who shall read Gen. Mc Clellan’s Report carefully, will be thoroughly convinced (hat the brilliant battles on the Pen insula were solely the work of the corps com manders, and but for the Interference of Mc Clellan as Commander-in-Chiei, Richmond woald have been taken ^nd the Rebel army destroyed. . n „ Watohman, What of the Night? Surely the morning is breaking, and the “signs of its coming” are plainly visible In the horizon. Streams of light begin to play on the summits of oar hills and mountains, and soon our valleys will be lighted up, and the shouts of Peace be heard throughout all the land. Now what arp the signs of- the .coming of this morning of Peace which all are so anxious fo witness ? WTiat evidence is there to warrant a belief that the military power of Jeff. Davis Is about to be broken, and the great rebellion to collapse? Or, in other words, what have ! the Union armies gained, and what have the ; rebels lost since they forced this war upon i us? The above are important questions in Which the people have a deep interest. We can answer them aad not depart from the re cord. During the last three years’ history has been made very fast, but not too fast for the pen of the historian to record the facts as they have transpired. It is true, we of the present time do not and cannot fully appreci ate them; that work must be left for posterity tty do, and future generations will read the pages of history which we are making with an interest Of which we have but a faint and feeble conception. _ But to return to the questions. Our brave soldiers have not died In vain and poured out their precious blood upon their country’s al tar for naught. A thousand Chicago plat forms may assert that the war has failed of its ends, but the veterans in our armies htow better. They can tell those Chicagoites wbat has been gained by the Federal forces since “Little McClellan” retired from his parade grounds and entered the arena of politics and at last mounted the peace platform which was made expressly for him. Our soldiers can point to such trophies as few wars can equal and none Burpass. What are those trophies, the reader may ask? Look along over two thousand miles of frontier. We have taken from the rebels over thirty thoroughly furnished fortresses, captured over two thousand cannon, recon quered and hold nearly four thousand miles of navigable river courses, fought our way to and taken ten of the enemy’s principal cities, three of which are capitals oi states, captur ed sixty thousand prisoners in a single month, advanced more than three hundred miles into territory claimed by the rebels, have cut up that territory In such a manner as to badly interfere with the communication of the reb el armies with each other, and have driven them into inconveniently close quarters. Again look along over six thousand miles of »ur sea coast. What meetwthe eye on this long line? We hold every harbor, or com mand the main entrance to them, and we trust Wilmington will ere long be in our pos session. The war is a failure, it it ? Shame on’Copperhead lies! No* no, our gallant and brave soldiers have not failed. They have done a'gldrious Work, and their noble deeds will be recorded on the pages of history for the admiration of coming generations. HO UftTv ucou opcaiuu^ yuijr ui uidtn mi ic suits, aud these axe sucli as will furnish no basis for an armistice. We know, Copper heads know, rebels know and the world knows that Jeff. Davis and other leading trai tors can have peace just as soon as -they lay down their arms aud ask for It; then, and not till then. But What xt( the moral xesults that have gtown out of this warP These have lurnish ed cause for profound gratitude to enlighten ed humanity aud earnest patriotism, not only here, but in all civilized countries. New ideas have sprung up and a higher civilization attained. The cause of liberty lias received a new impulse. But our object in this ar ticle was not to discuss the question in its moral aspects, but to show that the war has not been a failure, and that we think has been abundantly shown. The above article was written before the wire# brought us the joyful news of the splen did victories Gen. Sheridan and his brave troops have won iu the valley of the Shenan doah, victories that have struck a terrible blow at the rebellion. The bearing and Im portance of these vlctbrres'we have not time now to discuss, hut may make them a subject of fnturecomments. The task imposed on the brave General was an unpleasant one, for he Was ordered hot to light, but to keep a largo force of the enemy in his !ron‘ during several weeks until the opportune moment came to strike the blow, and most admirably has Sheridan discharged his duty. But more of this in an other article. The plan was wise ly laid and splendidly executed. A Sudden and Miraculous Oouversiou. The Advertiser of Saturday, which has here tofore been violent in opposition to the Union cause and kept step to the music of the rebel lion, came out fiat footed, and, making a clean breast, confessed that McClellan has no chance, and that hi, friends might as well surrender at once. Here is its language, from the pen of its proprietor and editor: “If the same relative gains in the popular vote shall be effected in Missouri, Illinois In dlana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryiand.as we have made in Maine. MR. LINCOLN’S ELEC TION WILL BE PUT BEYOND THE POS SIBILITY OF DEFEAT.” We have called this not only a sudden but a miraculous conversion, leaving that of Saul of ,n the ,hade tha‘11 seems dim o«nli y r Compar,80D- A S°°d many of vertlser and-£o Tl™that the Ad‘ Lincoln, and exceeding!, anxt TT, 0“‘ f°r accession should throw snaplc^'u^th!! Union candidate and thus injure hi, cau^e They knew that the touch of that paper andof that editor had proved to other causes like the touch of a iprpedo or electric eel, causing oth ers instantly to let go, and they feared its in fluence in this case; but they generally came to the conclusion that there is strength and vigor enough lathe Union cause to bear up even under the weight of such an accession. General Philip Henry Sheridan. This distinguished Union olHcer, whose re cent operations in the Shenandoah country havo Ailed the nation with rejoicing, and caused a quickened pulsation to the national heart, is a native of Perry County. Ohio, and was born in 183b He is therefore about thirty three years of age* He graduated at WestPoint in 1853, and entered the army as a brevet 2d Lieutenant. During the years 1853-4 and 5 he served la the Indian campaigns in Texas; and in July of the last mentioned year, after serving a few months in command of one of the forts in New York harbor was ordered to California. Engaged for a while in the gov ernment railroad surveys on the PaclQc Coast, ! he was detached from that service to take ! part in the campaign against the Indians, in Oregon Territory. In the severe campaign, under Major Kaines, he greatly distinguished himself, and was highly praised by his oom mauder for gallant and meritorious conduct la' the fight at the Cascades of Columbia, April, 28.1850. Ia December, 1861, he was made Quarter- I master of the Army of the Southwest, theu j operating hi Southern Missouri, aud afterward 1 in Arkansas under Gen. Samnel R. Curtis, lie remained with that army until after the great battle of Pea Ridge, in the spring of 1882, when he was appointed Chief Quarter master on the staff of Get. Bailee's, then in command of the army before Corinth. Iu May, 1802, he accepted the command of Second Michigan Cavalry, and from this time he was in his proper element, and his great merits as a soldier in active held service were rapidly developed. In one month he won his way-by sheer force of active and meritorious service, from the rank of major to that of gen eral officer. In September Of the Bame year he was given the command of the Third Div ision of the army of the Ohio, then operating under Buell iu Kentucky. He fought bis brigade with distinguished gallantry and suc cesi in the severe battle of Perrysville, in Oct ober of that year; and again, with still great er distinction, under General Rosecrans in the victorious Murfreesboro’ campaign in Decem ber, 1862, and January 1803. His services at this time were of such distinguished merit that he was made a major-general to date from December 31, 1362. His dashing expedition to the rear of the rebel lines near the Wilder ness, iu May last; his destructive foray on the Virginia Central Railroad, in June, and his almost ubiquitous operations against ike ene my, with the splendid cavalry he had imbued with his own soldierly spirit, made him the terror of Lee’s army in the early months of the campaign. In all his various employments, whether as a subaltern in an Indian campaign, in the dif ficult executive duties of the Quartermaster’s Office, as the Cplonel of a cavalry regiment, as General of an infantry division, as the Gen eral of a cavalry corps, or in the higher and more respectable position of commanding General of an independent army in the held, Philip Henry Sheridan has shown himself a most thorough- aud accomplished soldier.

Fremont has set two good examples : which McClellan would do well to oopy; first, resign his military commission, and second, withdraw from the presidential race.

Rickett’s division of the 5th army corps swung and joined Crook—Getiy’s and Wheaton’s divisions taking np the same move ment, followed by the whole line, and attack ing beautifully, carrying the works of the enemy. The rebels threw down their arms and fled in the greatest confusion, abandoning moat of their artillety. it was dark before the battle ended. I pressed on after the enemy during the night with the Oth and 19ih corps, and nave , stopped here to rest the men and Issue ra tions. If Gen Torbert has pushed down the Lcray Valley, according to my direction, he will achieve a great result. I do not think that there ever was an army eo badly routed. The valley soldiers are hid ing away and going to their homes. I cannot at present give you any estimate of prisoners. I pushed on regardless of eve rything. The number of pieces of artillery reported captured $• sixteen. (Signed) P. H.Shebidan, Maj. Gen. You are directed to cause a national salute to be fired, oi 100 guns, for the victory. Gen. Stevenson reperts that 3000 prisoners from the' field, had reached Winchester last night. Reinforcements and supplies have been for warded to Gen. Sheridan. ' (Signed) Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. New Yokk, Sfept. 24. The rebel battle-flag of the 2d Virginia In fantry—the old “Swuewail Brigade”—with thirteen battles inscribed on it, was captured by a member of the 37th Mass. lufantry. Its captor is missing. Washington, Sept. 24. It is ascertained that Gen. Early’s shattered forces have abandoned the road to Staunton and are retreating in disorder via Culpepper and Gordonsviile, direct to Richmond, leaving the road to Lynchburg open. Lee will be Un able to spare another army of sufficient num bers to oppose the progress of the victorious Sheridan. News from Sheridan this afternoon created wil<S excitement. The capture of Fisher’s Hill, the great stronghold and key to the up per part of the valley, in addition to sixteen pieces of artillery and thousands of prisoners, is regarded as the destruction of the rebel army in the valley and the opening of the whole route to Lynchburg, which must bring about the evacuation of Richmond or the cap ture of Lee’s whole army. , Other movements on our part are in pro, press which are not proper to disclose and which will tend to render this result inevita ble in a few days. jPVo»»« 3fw* Of/Mina. New York, Sept. 24. The Herald's New Orleans correspondent i of the 14th says the President, immediately after the Red River campaign, tendered the : War Department to Gen. Banks, but he de clined it. The court martial of the rebel Geu. Page commanding Port Morgan, for spiking the guns after surrender, is still progressing. The steamer Rob Roy had arrived from the Washita river with 1100 bales of cotton,which were seized by the Treasury agent for viola tion of an order. The old Mississippi marine brigade have been arrested on a charge of mutiny. Rebel Officers Captured. New York, Sept. 24. The Herald gives a partial list of the re bel ojlicers captured near Opcquan Creek by Sheridan, consisting of two colonels, seven lientenant colonels, one major, nineteen cap I tains and seventy-five lieutenants. Large Capture of Valuable Property. New York, Sept. 24. i The Herald’s Matamoras correspondent says Cortinas captured at Brownsville about $1,000,000 worth o;' goods. He Also captured Lorado, Texas, with between 2000 and 3000 bales of cotton. A Glorious Eeaolutioh^g 17 : i Our Universalist friends, at their annual session recently held in Concord,tmammously adopted the following resolution: Resolved—That while we deplore the blood shed, costliness and agonies of war, and earn estly pray for peace, we yet deem a cessation of hostilities which leaves it unsettled wheth er treason is to be rebuked or petted and fon dleJ, a delusion and a snare. If followed by attempts to bribe traitors to return to a nomi nal allegiance by the promise of surrendering to their vengeance two hundred thousand col ored men who are now bravely battHDg in our armies for Union and order, it would show such dastardly perfidy iu our Government as would call down on our nation the stern dis pleasure of a righteous God, and condemna tion from all good men. Such attempts would sound the knell of our Union, and the ship wreck Of our country. That. is uo unmeaning platitude, but a,sig nificant, outspoken, manly declaration, which touches a point of vastly more importance j than any other matter connected with ar rangements of a basis of peace. It cannot be doubted that President Lin coln will find in this grand utterance of a large religious body not only a ready rtsponse in hiv own generous breast, but a clear reflec tion of the views of all God-serving and hu manity-loving men and women of the nation and of the world. Tbit war, torrible In many of Its aspects as it undoubtedly is, will have done more to ce ment the bonds of Christian fellowship, with ! out reference to religious creeds, than all the preaching, invaluable and indispensable as preaching confessedly is, by all ministers of all denominations, since the foundation of this glorious government. Orthodox. Decline in Prices The speculators In New Yoric are panic stricken. Prices are tumbling down. West* em speculators, says the Express oi Thursday, and the foreign houses engaged in pork spec ' ulation, And it a difficult business to sustaiu it while the price of everything else is coming down. There is considerable "washing” daily going on to give an appearance of life and vi tality to the article, but this thing will not al ways last. There is a general fear and lack of conA dence in market rates. This is particularly applicable to dry goods, but will apply to near ly every branch of trade. In the dry goods trade there is a great pressure to sell, and the importers and jobbers are crowding their goods off through the Auction Rooms. The great feature of the week was the heavy offerings of domestic cottons,each day witness ed a large decline on the previous one. Goods are crowding to New York from all points to be sold, and there is a grand rush to get out. Attempted Escape — The Portsmouth Chronicle says that on Wednesday night fif- ( een or twenty sailors attempted to escape font the stenmer Colorado, at the Xaty Yard, >y Imnpin# overhoard and swimming to some mats lying out in the l iver for them. It is laid that one was killed by a musket shot fired jy the sentry, two others drowned, and the rest escaped. Fatal ACCIDENT —We are Informed that Mr. David Kelley, lormerly a driver of one of Berry’s line'of coaches on the Bath and Rock land route, while returning with a team from Thomas ton to Damarlscotta, on Thursday eve ning, when three miles from the latter town was thrown from his team, and falling front was kiekecfcto death by his horses. Mr. Kel ley belonged in Damaiiscotta, and leaves a wife and five children.—[Bath Times. IPaCIiL NOTICES. tdF' Carrier! of the Daily Prttt art not mlloved to ttll papert on their routes. A Card.
