From the Chicago Tribune. The Imaginary and the Beal McClellan. Never did mortal man have greatness sc thrust upon him as George B. McClellan. Without examining his military record, whlcl was destitute of interest, without even * glance at his face, which shows him equally destitute or Intellect of any high order, with out stopping to weigh the fact that any om who could pass through the Mexican wat with no other promotion than a brevet Lieut enancy, who could be used by Jeff. Davis 01 secret aud unlawful flllibustering spy servict ■ gainst Cuba, who could claim the glory with out participating in either the responsibility or the danger of the battles in West Virgin!*, had no elements of the hero, yet the country so needed a hero, the war so needed a repre sentative, the people so needed a demigod upon whom to lavish the great American dis position for hero idolatry, that all united in crowning McClellan with a paper crown, ai d hailing him as our General-in-Chief before be had led a squad into a skirmish or rendered any other service than to telegraph the bat tles in West Virginia which Bosecrans plan ned and fought, omitting the name of Rost - crans from the dispatches. This veteran of s thousand cheers and not a single charg>, greeted by Napoleon’s hurras, though inno cent of Napoleon’s battles, this calico hero, this knight in pantalettes, did the people <1 the North without distinction of party at d their President yielding to their voice, to their everlasting shame be it spoken, predestinate to begin bis military career at a greater ezal tatloa of fame than that to which the worl< s greatest Generals Us Marlboronghs, Welling • tons and Washingtons have been content lo climb through a long succession of hard-eari - ed victories. Ever since that date, the peop e have been separating the Imaginary from the real McClellan, and as fast as that which it Imaginary is removed, that which is real siuls Into insignificance. The imaginary McCh • lan, is a fierce looking youth, with an ea{.le eye, Roman nose, a compressed lip, and (I e expression of a hero. The real McClellan hs> a mild eye, a pug nose, an animal lip, and the mediocre expression of a man not to be en trusted with any other than very ordinary is sues. The imaginary McClellan fought a bril liant battle at Rich Mountain. The real Mc Clellan sent a subordinate to fight the battb while he remained lo sign the dispatch. Tin imaginary McClellan organized the army o' the Potoipac according to the most approver modes of warfare. The real McClellan foi nine mouths refused to organize it or to pro mote any of his Generals beyond Brigadier ships, for fear of elevating rivals who might outshine him. The imaginary McClellan w»f in the front of the battle at Williamsburg, on a fiery black charger, leading the troops on t< victory. The real McClellan was at Ycrk town, seven miles to the rear, under a eher, waiting for it to stop raining, and responsible wholly 'or their defeat. The imaginary Me Clellan was always contending against a supt - yior force, and thwarted in all his efforts to ol - tain reinforcements. The real McClellan ht-d at Washington 185.000 to contend against fron. 60.000 to 80,000, at Yorktown 107,000 agaiesi 7,000, at Williamsburg 80,000 against 25,000, at Fair Oaks, Gaines’ Mill and other battles, he had a force largely outnumbering that < 4 the rebels, of which he brought from a thiic to a fourth into battle; wLile he failed in every battle to so handle his force as to use mor< than a small fraction of it. uiner departments were stripped of the forcer which McClellan had certified to be necessary for their protection, to provide him with rein forcements when he already had in every bat tie many times more than he knew how to put Into the fight. The Imaginary McClellan had a deep personal sympathy with the common soldiers. The real McClellan led them with out any other plan than to avoid battle, into swamps where he lost Id a few months from thirty to forty thousand men by disease and desertion, without firing a gun at the enemy. The imaginary McClellan desired “only to Share the fate of his soldiers on ihe field of bat tle.” The real McClellan never, from York town to Antietam, was under fire. He was ab sent from Williamsburg, absent from Fair Oaks, absent from Gaiues’ Mills, absent from each of the Seven Days battles, which were fought only by his corps commanders, absent from Malvern Hills, and with the reserve— there being no other place, not even Wash Ington, so safe—at Antietam. The imaginary McClellan was full of deep laid, tar-seeing plans, to the failure to follow which all the disasters of the war are due.— The real McClellan never had any olher plan Uian the dog-ln-the-iqanger plan of neither fighting battles and reaping honor himself, nor allowing any one else to. To the lm„,_ nary MeClellan Is duo the capture of New Or leans. The real McClellan advised that it should not be undertaken, as It would require (0,000men. (Butler and Farragut accomplish ed it with 7000.) The imaginary McClellan Is ready to sacrifice personal aggrandizement to the military success of the country. The real McClellan withheld his army from com ing to the support of Pope, fourteen days at Harrison’s Landing and two days more at Al exandria, suggesting to Hallecb the wisdom of “leaving Pope to get out of the scrape as he could, and stated that “he was personal ly responsible” (as he was) for the very ads of criminal treachery to a brother officer on the battle-field, for which Fitz John Porter was cashiered. The Imaginary McClellan was the h ro of Antietam. The real McClellan left Hooker and Burnside to fight tbe battle as best they could without Reinforcements, and only came up after the victory was won and In H»e to prevent our army from reaping the fruits of victory by pursuit. In short sum ming his whole life the imaginary McClel lan la an exploded sbam, from all faith in which the common sense of the country has fallen off. Sensible men were sorry to give him up, because, to acknowledge that McClel lan was a military nobody was to acknowledge that they had been fooled. The President hung to him till every military man who had been brought into contact with him—Kear ney, Wool, Hooker, Heintzleman, Sumner, Keyes, Hitchcock, Wadsworth, Halleck, and Sedgwick—condemned him. Even his confi dants and participants in at least one crime ol military treachery—Fitz John Porter and Franklin—have in conversation condemned McClellan’s system of fighting battles by tele graph. In short, the dregs only of McClellan’s reputation are left. Those who have no knowl edge of the real McClellan admire that Action of *he imagination which we were all content with before the war had developed any actual Generals. As a civilian, McClellan has no other merit than that he adheres to policies which have been faithfully tried with great pa tience and long suffering, and, after such tri al, have been discarded. The Platform and the Candidate' The Freeman’s Journal ia the leadiug and most influential of all the Catholic papers iu Xew York. Its editor, Abbe McMasters, went to the Chicago Convention, influenced ,by the interest he felt in the results of that conven tion. Oa the Oth inst., before McClellan’s let ter was published, he thus Bpoke of the plat form : Beggars must not be choosers. We are re duced, as peoples, to a beggarly condition, and may, therefore, take a beggarly platiorm. It is not even “ half a loaf;” but better the heel of a sour loar, oil a dirty table, than absolute starvation. We had no right to expect much better from the Chicago convention, composed of the order of politicians that, in most of the States, secure the majority ot places as dele gates. So we are prepared to put up with the action of the convention, in regard to the pro gramme of “principles.” What we cannot accept, is not practical, but mere dead rubbish of a ruined past. Of the nomination of McClellan he dis coursed od this wise: Let no mistake be made as to facts. Mc Clellan’s nomiualion fell oh the West like a cold equinoctial storm. On the eve ot his nomination, when it became certain that be would be the candidate, thousands of West cm men left Chicago in disgust. They have yet to be re-assured, or no political manipula tions will secure their support, or that ot the multitude they represent. There was no in telligent observer at Chicago who did not see and know that the crowds there assembled were determined on peace and no more fight ing with Southern States. The peace candi date is the only one that can win in the corn lug contest. Having thus spoken of the platform and the chief nominee, he calls upon that nominee to face the music or take the consequences, as follows: Under which banner, then ? Are you for peace, or for “ war for the Union ”—or going to hell to gain heaven 1 We demand the blunt answer of an honorable soldier, and we expect it. On that hinges the action of two hundred thousand enrolled voters—sold at Chicago, but uot delivered, by spurious political leaders. Nobis Tribute to Starr King. In the Universalist Quarterly is a beautiful tribute to the late Rev. T. S. King, from the pen of Hon. Richard Frothingham of Charles town, Mass., a parishoner of Mr. King wheD the Utter was settled in that city, and the chief political editor of the Boston Post. Refering u> Mr. King, he says: “I have not felt,” he wrote during the last presidential campaign, “the first stir of an emo tion in politics in this campaign. I should not know there is a campaign.” But his feeling' changed as things changed from an ordinary contest of party iuto tbe vital question of coun .ry ; and when the rebellion rose he entered tbe field of politics as achampion of the Unioo. He no longer repined that he could not speak extempore. He won new faith in his capaci ty. He did not depeud on bis notes, but as tbe theme of country possessed bim, be rose nto tbe vehement passion of the great orator. He riddled the fatal heresy of secession. He met in mortal combat the incipient suggestion >f a Pacific republic. The formula of freedom, which, lourteen years before, he developed with academic calmness and philosophic in sight, at the base of Bunker Hill, he sounded with magnificent energy over California and fregon. He was belore loved as the man, ind now he was accepted as the patriot. “A great and good and generous man is lead,” are tbe simple words of the jonrnais as they announce this event; and their mourning :olumus, their gushing tributes, their recoru lay after day of what was said and done in memory of the departed, will be a faithful and snduring mirror in which the after-time will see the general and deep sorrow, the passion and the pathos of the public grief.” Such is the testimouy of a manly Democrat ic editor. How different from that miserable ibartion in Portsmouth, the mouth-piece cf a few rich, ignorant, coarse copperheads, which innounced Mr. King’s death in these chaste words: “We have news from California that Rev. Thos. Starr King, a ranting abolition traitor priest, is dead.” Bemarkably Oool. The New York World, in speaking of Sher idan’s recent victory over the rebels under the command of Early, says: “The political significance of this victory is too important to be passed by. Coming bo closely upon tbe presidential election, it lurn ishes one more reason why Mr. Lincoln should oe retired from the presidency, and a compe tent person, like General MClellan placed in tis stead. While we all rejoice at every vic tory which crowns our arms, we must not for get that each one furnishes additional argu ments for the election of the Democratic can lidates in November.” The above is the coolest, most impudent most ridiculous thing we have yet seen in re lation to the Presidential election. What does the writer mean ? Does he suppose tbe peo ple are allfools? What does the Chicago pta - form say ? It tells us McClellan ought to be elected because tbe war under the present ad ministration is a failure, and yet the World pretends to think that the brilliant victories of our armins furnish good reasons why the “Great Hesitator” ought to occupy the White House! What consistency and logic ! The truth is, the World knows that such victories are killing off McClellan and his Copperhead supporters so last that they will hardly be able to make any fight at all next November. A few more such victories and Little McClellan will be nowhere. The Soldiers vs. the Copperheads. From a Chattanooga paper now before us, we learn that one Augustus A. Starr, of Indi ana, went down to Chattanooga to procure colored substitutes for Indiana copperheads who were liable to dralt. The 4th Indiana Battery, of which Starr was formerly a Lieu tenant, knowing his character, held an indig nation meeting, and denounced him for his disloyalty, for his complicity with certain cop perhead resolves opposed to the government and denunciatory of the draft, and setting forth that the war was a failure, and protested against allowing any such disloyal persons to come within the Federal lines, and respect fully requesting the General commanding the District or Department to furnish the said Au gustus A. Starr with an escort from wherever he may be found to north of the Ohio River. Nothing is half so offensive to loyal soldiers ** the traitorous northern copperheads. The Bangor Whig learns that Charles E bean, formerly associate editor of the Bangor „inocrat, was taken prisoner a few days since >y 1 e e eral army. Bean was intensely democratic while there, and enlisted under Jeff. Davis, in the 2d Virginia Cavalry. Nearly all of his former associates would be pleased to follow his lead if they only had the courage. They furnish sympathy, but dare not, like Bean, furnish the material. iy One man in Vermont has grown nine tons tobacco this year. Brigadier General George 8. Beale. Portland, Sept. 26,1S64. Mr. Editor:—It is very gratifying to the numerous friends of Col. Beale to learn of his promotion to Brigadier General. No of ficer In the army has the credit in military circles of having performed his official du ties with more bravery and efficiency, whilst acting in the capacity of Captain In the 1st. Maine Regiment, Colonel of the 29th and Act ing Brigadier General in the Department of the Gulf. Three of our Maine Colonels commanded Brigades in the Red River Campaign—Gen. Fessenden, then Colonel of the 30th, Col. Beale of the 29th and Col. Rust of the 13th. Col. Beale has been in command of a Brig ade from that time to the present, except a short time when he was in command of a Division. He was very popular with his su. perior officers, and his promotion was earnest ly solicited by Generals Emory and Wright. We learn that Quartermaster Thompson and Adjutant Gould of the 29th will be as signed to duty ou the General’s Staff, as Brig age Quartermaster and Assistant Adjutant General. Certainly no more efficient officers could have been selected for those responsible positions. Lieut. Thompson has long been in the ser vice as Regimental Quartermaster, the duties of which he has performed with marked abili ty and promptness. He in now at home on a short leave, his health having become very much impaired by c oustant hard labor as Brigadier Quartermaster in the Department of the Gulf. We hope he may soon regain his health, and be able to resume his duties in the field. Adjutant Gonld is a special favorite in the army wherever he is known. He has won his popularity, not only in the very efficient man ner in which he has discharged his official du ties, which are very onerous, but also by his special acts of kindness and efforts for the ac complishment of good among the soldiers. Whilst I was in the Department of the Gulf I was at Morgan zia, where the 19th Army Corps wa3 in camp. As I was riding along the line of the encampment, it being on Sun day evening, I noticed quite a crowd of sol diers collected and heard in the distance the singing of sacred music. Approaching the crowd I heard some one addressing them up on religious matters. Upon Inquiry, I was told that it was “Adjt. Gould's prayer meet ing” It was very interesting to see a young man in the army so zealous in his efforts to encourage a good moral sentiment among the soldiers. The officers of his regiment informed me that it was his uniform practise every Sabbath evening, in the absence of a Chaplain, to lead in devotional exerciese among the soldiers. How commendable such a developement of Christian character in the army. We hope he may continue his efforts in this direction, and induce many others to join him. Gen. Beale’s Brigade is still in the 19th Army Corps under Gen. Sheridan. J. M. Canada and the United States. Montreal, Sept. 23d, 1864. Tj the Editor qf the Preta: The following is clipped from the Gazette of this city: Departure op Confederate Soldiers —On Monday evening at 6 o’clock a large crowd collected on the Que bec boat wharf, to witness the departure of a number of < on federate officer* and soldiers, by the steamer Montre al, on route fop the South. The band of the 1st or I rince of Wales Rifle Regiment kindly volunteered their services on the occasion performing several pieces such as * The Girl 1 left behind me.” “Old Lang Syne,” ‘‘Dixie,” and other appropriate pieces. Among tho-*e who left were Lieut Joe benedict on the late Qen Morgan’s staff, Lieut. * ilii&msou of Alabama, Lieuts Murphy and Anderson of Tennessee,Chan. D Kirk, v*m. Bis. op E. T. 0 borne, Mr. Harrington < f Kentucky, Mr Brace, of Wharton’s I scouts, Mr v\ estbro e of Texas and a number of others, The affair was entirely impromptu, and must have been highly gratifying to the young men going to their South ern homes, who were loudly ebeered as the boat took her departure. It may be added that Lieuts. Murphy of Teunessee, and Williamson of Alabama escaped from Johnson’s Island, the others having made their escape from other Federal prisons in the North. The above paragraph may be copied into your papers as evidence of the state of feeling in Canada. It indicates that confederate sol diers left the wharf of Montreal to fight a na tion with whom ire are and hope to be at peace, attended by crowds of citizens who wished them God speed and honored these sol diers with the presence of a Band belonging to one of the Regiments of Volunteers, the Prince of Wales Regiment.' The real facts are, that a few refugees from the South and escaped prisoners from United States prisons, left for the Quebec boat at the time indicated, for the South, via Halifax— that their friends, not over fifteen, also South erners, accompanied them to the wharf and that the Fife and Drum Corps of the Prince of Wales Regiment not in uniform, did play for these men on the wharf. The leader of this band is in a broker’s office, which is head quarters for Southern financeers, and withwnt the sanction of the officers of the Regiment and without a thought of the impropriety, went to the wharf with the band, as private citizens, not as a band of a Volunteer Regi ment. This paragraph appearing in the Ga zette, the Government organ, excites no sur prise here. Since your troubles commenced, this paper has systematically vilified and de nounced the U. S. Government, and evinced the strongest sympathy with the Rebels. It never alludes to your government but to sneer and ridicule. This paper, not edited with the ability of the Telegraph, which is the organ of the Confederates here, is nevertheless more mischievous, as it has a circulation in the Uni ted States, and misrepresents the people of Canada, who allow Federals and Confederates to come and go without notice, and certainly do not consider the departure of a half dozen confederate subalterns and soldiers worthy of a public demonstration with bands of Mnsic. Whatever may be the opinions and sympathies of the people iu regard to the rebellion, Cana da will not by any public act, violate the neu trality enjoined by the Queen or inconsistent with good neighborhood. Montreal. Extract from a Letter from the Army. Dear Press : The following letter is from a friend of mine who can show the scars ol more than one rebel bullet. Yours, C. C. E. Camp of 17th Mk. Voi.8.,Neak Pb- I teksbubo, Va., Sept. 17,1804. J Deab- * * * “1 got up here the lltu inst. We were put ou picket duty in front ot the rebels. We then had no firing on the picket line, aud talked, aud traded cofiee, papers, &c., with the rebels; but duriug the nignt of the 12th, we advanced our line and drove them back after a sharp fight. Part of onr line occupied their abandoned rifle pits, but our Kegimeut dug new ones lor onrselves during the darkness. At daylight we found ourselves snug in to the rebel works. Here was a fix. The Johnnies ordered us to surren der, and as some of us were so situated that we could not get back, a few surrendered. I stood in my hole a few feet from them, and j tried to make terms with them. They told ! me 1 must come in, or they would open fire J ou me. I told them to fire if they wished, and laid myself down, in my hole and let them I blaze away. They did not dare to come out to me, as onr men kept up a hot fire upon them. I stayed there two days and nights; but one dark morning 1 crept up to qpr pick et line and got in sale, though the rebels gave me a hot fire in the rear, and our men opened on me as soon as I came in sight, but I called to them and they stopped. I thought I would tlsk being shot, rather than surrender, and be starved to death in Libby prison. * * * ir boys had divided my tbings among them selves, but my unexpected return rather broke arrangement. Since theu we have b . h p!‘“.Dti'—though none of us have yet been hit while on picket. We keep in our holes and hve most of the time under ground. .1 ! fr0m tb® el«C tion in Maine. It was just the thing for us.— What we want is, to keep Old Abe for Presi dent for four years longer, and all will be well Tbe rebels have no hope of success but in the election of McClellan. * * * The rebels like him too well for me to vote for him. Wo have talked It over with tbe rebs.and their on ly hope for themselves Is in his election. But it wont go down. Let our folks put the draft through, and give as the men, and we will take care of the rebellion In short order. B F H Co. G, 17th Me.'Toll.

Taylor, because he had no experience of matters in civil life ! (yThe Bates Manufacturing company, Lew iston, in addition to two mills, of about 30,000 spindles, has recently put in operation a woolen mill containing eight sets ef machinery. Its profits the past year on sales amounting to $2, 137,800 have been $287,000, or upwards of 28 per oent. on the capital, 20 per cent of which has been paid to the stockholders in two semi-annual dividends. y The ringleader of the pirates who seixed the steamers on Lake Erie is a man named Chas. H. Cole. He appeared in 'Cleveland about six weeks ago, made a large display of gold, en tered into negotiations for the purchase of two sohooners, pretended to be very loyal, made the acquaintance of the officers of the United States steamer Michigan, gave them suppers, and crea ted a sensation generally. y At Manassas Gen. McClellan displayed his prowess by being held in check, 180,000 strong, by a handful of rebels manning a fortification guarded with wooden guns ! At Munson’s Hill he distinguished himself in a similar way by hal ting and shovelling before a stove pipe battery ! These were achievements in military affairs never dreamed of by Napoleon; never attempted by a Field Marshal. xyMoClellaB is thirty-seven years of age. It has been discovered, says an exchange, that this is a very unfortunate age for genius. It is the age when precocity dies. Byron died at thirty seven. So did Burns and Raphael. Geo. B. McClellan will be added to the number on the 8th of Nov. He can’t survive that point. The wooden gun and stovepipe hero will then be laid low. His last battle will tbeu be fought; his last sleep will then be comment el. Gy We read frequently in the police records that officer so-and-so made a descent upon some obscure shop in an obscure street. This may all be well, but why pass by the more conspicuous offenders T A friend had occasion a few even ings since to wait half on hour in the office of one of our second class hotels, and while doing so counted twenty-nine young men, in that short period, making a straight wake for the liquor room. |y Seme people do not understand why Rob’t C. Wiathrop, the old Websterian Whig, should now descend to the platform of Rynders and Fernando Wood. They forget that he is a man of disappointed hopes and soured spirit; that he could not endure to see such men as Charles Sum ner and Henry Wilson occupying posts in the United States Senate, while he was passed by. So, instead of standing firm with Everett, he goes down, down, down among the filth and slime of eopperheadism, to become the com panion of men steeped in damning infamy. gy The Chioigo Journal says: “Rev, Dr. Evans related in his sermon last Sunday the fol lowing incident: The spot in our lake can be pointed out to you where a young lieutenant of the United States army was once well nigh drowned. He went down, as it was supposed, for the last time, when assistance reaohed him. He was rescued, and after muoh difficulty restored to consciousness. That young lieutenant is now the President of the insurgent 'Confederacy’— Jefferson Davis. ’ ’ There is an old proverb whieh says “he who is bora to be hanged will never be drowned.” Exhibition in Readfield. Readfield, Sept. 23,1804. n the Bditor of tht Portland Prut: The annual exhibition of the Eaton Board ing School for Boys, took place in Gile’s Hath in this place, last Thursday evening. At an early hour the Hall was, as usual, densely filled by the people of the adjoining country, who were attracted hither by the ex tensive reputation of this institution, confident that a rich intellectual treaV was in store. Nor were they disappointed. The exercis es consisted of Declamations and Dialogues, interspersed with music furnished by the Win throp Brass Band. In regard to the character of the entertain ment, it is only necessary to say that it was second to none of the previous exhibitions of the rchool. At the close of thoexerciaes for the evening, the prizes for the past year were awarded by the various committees as follows: The first prize in declamation to Charles H. Torrey, of Sacramento, Cal.; for composition, to Geo. H. Ware, of Waterville; for greatest improvement in penmanship, to Frank A. Champlin, of Wa terville; in spelling, to Francis H. Hale, of Ellsworth. It is needless to speak of the high character of this school. Established in 1856, it has al ready won for itself a reputation' seeond to none of the similar institutions of New Eng land. It numbers among its patrons many of the most influential men of Maine, and other New England States, and has thus far given entire satisfaction to all those who have fa vored it with their support. Its present proprietor, Mr. Hamlin F. Ea ton, is a gentleman whose long experience as an instructor of youth, has admirably fit ted him for the position he so ably occupies; and one has only to mark the affectionate re gard bestowed upon him, by all his pupils, to be convinced that he is a teacher of uncom mon merit. To those who would secure lor their chil dren the advantages of a superior school, and at the same time a quiet and well order ed home, this Institution affords unparaleil ed attractions. Its next term commences on the second Monday of November, under the the most fa vorable auspices. We trust that the school, under the able su perintendence of its present instructor, will receive the support from the friends of educa tion it so richly merits. Amicus. Suspicious.—A drafted man from the coun try informs us, that he was boarded by a man on the street, who appeared very solicitous to get him clear, and said he could do so through a friend of his in the office. Afterwards he re ceived a printed card, from a suspicious petti fogger hailing from an office In this city, offer ing his services particularly at this juncture, to all drafted men entitled to exemption for non-appareut causes, and he found out that all the drafted men in his town were favored with similar cards. A friend of his—also drafted— was told that he could be cleared for $100! Our informant went to the office from which the aforesaid pettifogger hails, and there he found the fellow who had boarded him in the street and claimed to have an influential friend iffithe office. He saw there only copperheads, and several of them of the worst type. The thing looks suspicious. And it looks particu larly so to And men claiming respectability prostituting their professional offices to the uses of those who, for a fee, will lend their en ergies to defraud the Government out of the services of men to which it is entitled. Pertinent Question. — At the Brady House, Harrisburg, a few days since, two friends were conversing, and one of them ask ed: ‘‘By the way, S-,what are your poli tics?” “A democrat, sir, because my father was a democrat,” answered the person address ed. “And what is your religion?” “A protestant, sir, because my father was a protestant.” “And why are yon a bachelor?” “Because my father was a—” At this moment S—happened to think wbat he was saying, so he turned away mut tering: “Oh, darn! what’s the use of talking? —Don’t bother me with your silly ques tions.” SPECIAL NOTICES. vr Carrier, qf the Daily Pre„ are not allowed to eellpaper, on their route,.
