Tub Position'.—A few days since wo re
marked that Sherman was limning eight or
ten trains a day of provisions into Atlarfa.
The Macon Intelligencer says he is re or
over two hundred oar loads of provisions daily.
This'is one of the beautiful fruits of the “ar
mistice.” But what has been done in (his mat
ter cannot be undone. All we can now do is
to vigorously prepare for the future If the
Confederate authorities at Richmond pass a few
more weeks of ou ■.* and negligence, ami refuse
to take proper measures and steps for the de
fence of Georgia, Sherumn will succeed in safe
ly bousing himself in Atlanta, and will not only
be in a strongly fortified pojitioa, but will
have provisions enough on hand to make it im
possible to native him out. The necessity of
the moment demands an active and effectual
campaign. The plan mast be quickly put in
motion otherwise wo will be immolated on the ai

The canvas* for the Presidency in the United
Slates is unißUii'y complicated, Never cm a
more important crisis occur in the history cf
civilized r.aiicns than that which at this tune
exists on this continent. A revolution, in
volving lb-. - most womentov.3 interests which
the world has ever seen staked upon a con
test, is in full progr* bs. bay wLet we may
resolve what we will; still ihe success of this
revolution is to bo largely affected by the
character of the Government which controls,
the United Staten. It is impossible to be in
different spectators of the contest which is
going 'on there. We must keep in view the
principles which prompted and guided our ac
tion when the separation took place. Ihe
access of the Black Republican party in elec
ting their candidate, was regarded as a tri—
•••r.ph not over us. but over the constitution.
The doctrine bail been boldly announced that
tLe institution of slavery should no longer be
left to the protection of the St tea where it ex
isted, but a purpose was dkeiosed to bring
this system of domestic servitude under the
jurisdiction of the general Government, with
a view to its ultimate extinction. Tha irre
pressible conflict between freedom and slavery
was announced. That dangerous idea; eu
idea fatal to the integrity of the Union was
uttered by Mr. Seward. He was the Mepbis
tophiles who stood up to miriead the people
by a sophistry as seductive as it was dan
gerous. Bv far the most dangerous man that
ihe country ha3 ever predated, he appeared
at a conjuncture In our national affairs when
ihe was potent for mischief; cold, irapasrible,
crafty, unscrupulous, and ambitious, he saw
that his hour had come. The hour to destroy,
not to save. The hour to achieve a triumph
over the principles of the Constitution by as
sorting a principle utterly at war with its
provisions. The very same cor diet in'! risen
upon the adoption of that instrunient, (ted, it
had been settled by a compromise which should
never have been disturbed. In the West, too,
another man appeared; a man who in many
respects is a perfect contrast to the present
Premier of the United .States.
Abraham Lincoln Lad acquired notoriety in
his contest with Mr bongo*-, for the Senator
sbip of Illinois. Uncouth, unlearned, and yet
shrewd ; he had exhibited some points which
made him available as a popular candidate.
He hud uttered the sentiment that the Govern
ment of the United States not could embrace
two conflicting systems of civilization; that
the States must be all free, or all slave. The
Whig party had lost its strength. The Demo
cratic party was irreconcilably divided. At
that critical conjuncture, the Presidential
election came on, and the compact body o!
Black Republicans triumphed;
Then came the revolution—State after State
withdrew from the common Government. I'he
refusal of the Administration at Washington
to withdraw the Federal. troops from Fort
Sumter, built on the coil of South Carolina,
brought on tbo war. A fire was opened on it

ov.t it. and tiicn came waV—fierce, relentless,

.a;;.outraged by its continuance.
Christianity moutas over it. Civilization is j
appalled by it. • i
When the Convention assembled at Chicago
we turned our eyes with hope so that spot.
While it did not accomplish all that the friends
of constitutional liberty hoped for, still it
threw across the dirk waters of strife- the first
ray of pure light that had streamed upon them
for four years. The nomination of Gen. Mc-
Clellan was tho result of an exigency ; his
availability was regarded ; and the antago
nism which he offered to Hie present adminis
tration, constituted him far the strongest maa
that could have been presented to the people
of the United States.
The recognition in the resolutions adopted
by tins Convention, 6f the great principle of the
rights of the States, was to us a most cheering
fact. It was a recognition of a saving princi
ple ; absolutely the only principle that can
rescue us from the tremendous consequences
that threaten to follow the present struggle.
Os this wo may say-more hereafter.
The resolutions provide, too, for a cessation
hostilities ; they denounce war as a mode
restoring tho Union of the States. That will
lead to peace. Hostilities once suspended,
will '--.ever be resumed. Let us bear this in
Now Gon. McClellan accepts the nomination,
but lie writes a letter defining his individual
sentiments. This letter bad far better have

Those who look only at the segment of a cir

It was written after the news of the fall of At

to adjust his position to flic popular surround

nitude of' that success is appreciated at the
Nortli at its full value. It re-anirnatel the

Mr. Seward in his Auburn speech regarded
it as the breaking of one cnyjj tho huge egg
of the rebellion. Tho figure“ is not a very fe
licitous one, but it serves to show the degree
of importance attached to the disaster at»\t
lanta by our enemies. Gen. McClellan's letter
of acceptance was written when ihe news of
this crowning achievement of the Federal arms
reached the North Salutes, illuminations,
waving banners heralded tne tidings. The
populut furor was to bo diverter!—and some
intimation given that the hope of restoring the
Union was not to be utterly abandoned. We
do not doubt that the public estimate of Gen.
McClellan's position will before a great while
restore to him all the friends of peace who
would under any circumstances have given
him their support. The great object to be at
tained is the defeat of Lincoln. His re-election
means war : relentless, exterminating war. The
emancipation of the slave ; the subjugation cl*
tha people of the South ; the confiscation of
propci ty ; the obliteration of all political lights.
The shield held up to our view as he makes
war upon us, is the head of Medusa.
On the other baud, if Gea. McClellan should
be elected, a cessation of hostilities will follow.
The war will bo suspended. The star of hope
will rise above the surging billows That re
suit once attained, hostilities will never be
resumed. Negotiations will be seriously en
tered upon. The trifling, itresponsible style of
treating the great questions at' present carried
oil at heme and abroad, will come to an end :
and a settlement will be reached which will
ref tore the States to their pristine glory.

men alluded to were George Butler formerly
a clerk in the Treasury Department, and
Thomas Knox, Captain and Commissary at

from his clerkship some time ago, for drunk
enness, but was granted a furlough by the bu
reau of conscription, for sixty days, in which

“blind brother,” having his head soared,
moustache <.<f, and green goggles on. On the
same morning Knox had drawn from the treas
ury, on a requisition for Camp Jackson, $149-
000, which, it is alleged, he converted into'
gold and sterling, and pocketed. An examina
tion of Butler's accounts, it is said, discovered
a defalcation of no less than 5700,000. Ho
had, it was reported, been purchasing sterling
for some time past. Knox being a native of
Fredericksburg, easily managed to get a pass
