THE CAMEMICiS THE ISSUE. - Before the next issue of tha Heuald tlie Republican County Convention w ill Lave lecn held, arid we shall have en tcreJ upon the duties of the campaign It is true that the election this year is local in i s character, and that tho excitements are less than they will be ia 1SG3, when the choice ef President, Congressman, Gere-mor, Stat9 Ticke and Legislature will create grave and vi:al interests and issues to be met and p ssed upon by the voters cf the State cf Nebraska. Nevertheless, the cam paign upon which we are nowenterTng1 is an important one, and it is essential that we fully comprchond its importance and significance. There are weighty responsibilities resting cpon the Re publican party at the present time, and as ach member of the party compre hends hi3 individaul responsibility, it becomes him to see to it that he dis charges his whole duty to himself, to his party, and through his party to our beloved land. The smallest pebble cast into the largest lake sends a wave to its most distant bounds. Jro the action cf each individual msmber of society, howso ever trifling may seem its import, wil produce its influence upon humanity to iiio uiuiun liiiiu oi time. Knowing that we hava duties to perform, let a! see, then, that they are performed faithfully and earnestly ; and, in a po litical sense, let no man ignore h;s duty upon the ground that he may censidtr his influence small. Some years -ago a Governor of Massachusetts was elec ted Ly cne majority ; and while we expect that no such result will occur this Fall in this county as the election of any Republican nominee by so smal a majority as that, still the polling of a full vote, and the carrying of this county by a handsome majority now will not only assist the party greatly next year on the county ticket, but will produce an important influence in carrying the State at a time when the gravest quest ions of public concern are involved. "While in a comparative sense the offices to be filled this year are trifling, still to us locally they are important, and the same great principles are in volved now as they have been in the years that are past, and a3 they will be in the years to come. Tyranny is no less hateful now than it was a thousand years ago. Liberty is no less beauti ful. Truth is no less sacred. The same battle is still waged between free dom and tyranny, truth and error, that has been waged through a score of weary centuries. Though men may change, principles remain. Hence, however trifling may appear the issues of a local campaign, it shouTdbe borne in mind that the principles to be. main tained are vital, and that they cannot with safety to ourselves or the country Le ignored. Seven years ago there was a most animated contest before and among the Aiherican people, freedom and no more slave territory on one side, and an oli garchy and slavery as the cornerstone of the Republic on the other. It was the old battle of liberty and tyranny renewed. The party upholding the former was called RepubUcan, the party upholding the latter, Democratic. The sovereign people rose in their maj esty, and gave their verdict, in accord ance with the provisions of the Consti tution, on the .side of freedom, and de clared that with their consent there could be no more territory polluted "ith slavery in all thi3 broad land. Then it wa3 that the Democratic parry, or at least the only powerful portion of it, ignored the voice of the people, trampled upon the Constitution, scoffed at the Union of the States, de fied the authority of the Government which the fathers had created, and ig noring the restraints cf law, forced the issue of arms. To sustain the cause of the people, and to uphold the Gov ernment, and to b.ear the starry flag over all our broad domain, hundreds cf thousands cf America's bravest sens aid down their lives; hundreds of thousands breathed the sickening at mosphere of the hospitals, or starved in Southern prisons, or becama crip- led and maimed for life. Who shall estimate the self-sacrifice cr the suffer ing or the mourning which the refu sal of the advocates cf slavery to re spect law and the voice of the people, uccd ? Who shall measure the grief and desolation c the parents who mourned the death cf their children, of the wives who were made widows, of the children who were made father- 5s ? So much for the refusal cf the leading portion ef the Democratic party to respect the people end the laws and the Government, and so much for the endeavor to break up the Union of the States and to found an oligarchy with slavery as its cornc-r-s'.one. The cause of liberty triumphed as the result of the four years terrible war. The chains were struck from the limbs of four millions of people. Sla very, in its expiring throe?, seized the weapon cf the assassin, and slew the President of the United States. An drew Johnson became President. Re pudiating the principles which he pro fessed, instead of standing by and sus taining the party of the people, of free dom, and of loyalty, he joined hands wkh the enemies of the country, and for two years ha3 used Lis power and patronage as President against those who for four bloody years upheld the banner of liberty and nationality, he doing his utmost to overthrow the party to whose patriotic devotion we are to day indebted for the integrity of our territory, and for the respect in which cur Republic is held by the nations of the globe. Opposed to him, and representing the loyal people, stand the Congress and Senate of the country, resolved that sufficient guards sha'l be thrown around the treasonable element of the land, so that the people can rest in se curity and repose, assured that the Government will remain in patriotic hands, and that the nation will not aaiu be convulsed with another terri ble rebellion and war. And there stand the exponents of the different parties and principles to clay ! On tlift one side, Andrew Johnson, heading the same old Democratic party which appealed to arms in behalf of slavery six years ago ; on the other, tho representatives of the patriotic people who bore the country in tri umph through the flame3 of treason and rebellion, and who insist upon the safety of the country for the future, and who insist on equal and exact just ice to all men, regardless of color or race. Thi3 is simply the same old fight between freedom and slavery, right and wrong, which has lasted for thousands of years. Thus far, during the past seven years, liberty has taade gigantic strides in this country, and with a President acting in harmony with the representatives cf the people, the triumph would be complete. Next year it is for the people to decide Avheth er or net this harmony between Presi dent and Congress shall be made com plete, or whether, by the placing in power of the disloyal element of the country, the safety of our institutions shall bo endangered, and those who fell in dt-fense of our nationality on many a hard-fought battle-field shall have fallen in vain. Everything bear ing upon this gigantic contest is impor tant, no mat'.e-r how trifling it may ap pear. Hence it i3 that we again say that the election to be held in thi3 county this Fall, although local in its character, i3 vastly important, for it carries its influence and to a certain extent effect3 the great struggle of next year, which will be momentous in its results, and will have much to do with the safety and happiness of every citi zen of our broad land, and will settle, to a great degree, the character of our institutions and the stability of the Re public. XEERASEtA STATE TEACJI JEIIS ASSOCIATION. The first meeting of this Association will be held at Brownville on Wed nesday and Thursday, October lGth and 17th. Prof. J. T. Goodnow, late State Su perintendent of Kansas, will be present to assist in organizing, and will also deliver addresses suitable for the occa sion. The people of Brownville have pledged themselves to give the teach ers a hearty welcome, and will enter tain all attending the Association free of charge. A full programme of the meeting will be published next week, and we earnestly invite all teachers in the Stale to attend if possible we need the uni ted efforts of all. H. E Rrowj?, ) J. 31. McKexzxe, IlEOISTEK! REGISTER!! REGISTER ! ! ! Are you registered ? Are you ac quainted with the provisions of the 'Act to Provide for the Registration of the Voters cf th State," passed .re cently by the Legislature, signed by the Governor, and now a law of Nebraska? If you are not registered, look to this at once; for if you are not registared by the Mondaycr Tuesday of the week ntxt preceding the week in which the election is held, you cannot vote. Nebraska for years has been cursed with fraudulent voting. Tho Demo cratic managers have reduced this fraud to a system, and hence these who have not been entitled to a vote at all have voted for years, not only once and in one place, but "early and often" in ac cordance with the well-known Demo cratic doctrine. Hence, counties with not a dozen legal voters hove cast a Democratic majority cf hundreds; hence the fact of centers ever delegate to Congress as well as the contests over minor officer?, attended, as those con tests arc, with expene and annoyance and iil-feelintr. Hence the importation and colonization of voter?, particularly in Omaha, from Julesburg, North Platte, and even from Iowa, resulting in injustice and the def9at cf the qual ified voters and actual residents. The Legisliture wisely "concluded that these frauds should be stopped, and therefore passed an act for the reg istration of the names of the qualified voters, an act similar in its provisions to the one that has for 'ears worked so beneficially in the State cf New York, and which, in that Stnte, has prevented the casting of tens cf thousands of fraudulent votes. That the Democratic managers should find fault with a law which prevents the polling of fraudulent votes, was to have been expected, for they see in the shut ting off of their imported and colon ized and non-naturalized element the visible weakening of their power.- That in some cases the loyal and patri otic classes may be put to some trifling annoyance in attending to the registry we frankly admit, yet so long as the object of the law is to keep the ballot box pure, and so long as it will most certainly insure this result, we are sat isfied that they will comply with the provisions of the act without a murmur The trifle of attending to the registry i3 asking very little of a people who are blessed as are tho American people with civil and religious liberty, and the man who would complain at the enact ment of a law which, in its effect, pro vides that the will cf the people fha! prevail and shall not be overridden by fraud, fails somewhat, it seems to u in a proper r.pprecia;ion cf the duties of citizenship and the importance cf the purity of the ballot-bix. The Democrats find fault with tha law, a3 was to have been expected, but they all take precious good care to see that their names are rendered. Ljt Republicans take the snnia pain?, an tho law will work most beneficially ia the prevention of fraudulent Voting in Nebraska. We expect, of courcc, that the Reg istrars will do their duty in the prem ises, in reference to those who are known to be qualified voters, but wc moit earnestly and emphatically call upon every Republican to see to it him self that Lii name is upon th Rag is try. Again we say, Register ! Register! Register ! ! ! e si,ooa Oil BACK," Under the above caption the JVcurs says there i3 in Nebraska City ready to wager : One Thousand Dollars, that there will be sold Fifty Thousand Dollars worth cf town lots in Lincoln daring the next 30 days! ! Ten Thousand Dollars ! .' That the Sales will amount to enough in- three days from the time they commence, to erect the building advertised. Twenty Thousand Dollars, to a cent, that Calcombo's journal don't represent the Radical party or anybody in tlais matter, except Thayer, Worthington, Sahler, Taylor, the niggers and Est'a brook." We would say to the JS'ews that it is useless to talk to anybody in Omaha about a wager on anything connected with the capital question they are not "on it." One of the loud-mouthed of fered to wager SlOO to SoO with a cit izen of this city that the commissioners were not legally qualified to act, and when he was called "to time" heigno miniously wilted. We are pleased to see the Aeirs so candid as to admit that Palcombe's journal does not represent the Radical party in this matter. It is just the position we have always as sumed. We contend that tho radical party, as a party, ha3 nothing to do with tbi3 question, and all efforts to make it a party question will prove fu tile an! recoil upon the persons attempt ing it. A FALSEHOOD XAILCO. A correspondent signing himself "C," writing from this city to the Oma ha Herald, under date of the -1th inst., says that Wm. Snyder, a German citi zen of this county, was refused regis tration by Jlr. Hoover, the Registrar in Louisville precinct, tecarse he could tot present his paper?, and says he (Snyder) offered to make affidavit that he was admitted to full citizenship in Illinois in tha year 1SJG, but that Mr. Hoover "refused to take the affidavit, and would not regist r his name." We are authorized by Capt. Hoover to say that iIr. Snyder did not, during the whole time cf registration, present himself for registration, , and that the statement of "C." is entirely untrue. We know nothing of the case, but Capt. Hoover is well enough known in tiiis community that his statement needs no further cerroboration. Wre advise IIr. "C." to ' hold his horses," and not attempt to make political capi tal cut of mere rumors, especially when they impugn the actions of as upright and honornLIe men as Capt. Hoover is known to be. Sine:: the aU:ve was in type we have received the following affidavit, which we think will effectually "settle the hash" with Mr. "C." Will the Oma ha Herald be sufficiently just to Mr. Hoover to publish his sworn denial of the falsehoods of the correspondent "C ?' State of Nebraska, ) Cass County. es. John T. A. Hoover, being first duly sworn, says: That ihe communication wnich appeared in the Weekly Omaha Herald under date of September 12th, 1SG7, dated at Piattsmouth, Septem ber 4th, 1SG7, signed "C," is untrue. It is untrue that I refused to place the name of Mr. William Snyder on the registry roll unless he would produce his papers. The fact is. Mr. Snyder never came to me and requested me to put his name on the registry roll, dur ing the 2d, 3d and 4th days of Septem ber. He came with one Mr. Craw ford on the lGth day of September and Mr. Crawford asked me how it was that I would not let Mr. Snyder regis ter. I told htm I had never refused to allow his name (Mr. Snyder's) to be put upon the register roll; that Mr. Snyder had not come at the proper time, and that he would now have to wait until the 30:h day of September, or the 1st day of October, at which times the registry roil would be cor rected and Mr. Snyder could then have his name put upon the roll, and further affiant saiih not.

Pursuant to notice, a Urge number of the Republican voters of Plaits mouth precinct assemble! at the Court House for the purpose of electing del egates to attend the County Republi can Convention. The meeting was called to order at 2 o'clock, P. M., and On motion, II. D. Ilithaway was called to ihe Chair, and G. W Fair field elected Secretary. On motion, a comnvttee, consisting of De Forest Totter, W. D.Gage and D. II. Wheeler, was appointed to pre sent the names of suitable persons for delegates to the County Convention. Tho committee reported the names of the following persons: R. R. Li v. inastuno,' Isaac Wiles, Gaylord J. Cl.-.rke. II. D. Hathaway, Saml. Mas will. Sand. Eickenbary, Tho3. Mitch el, D. II. Wheeler, Geo. Boeck, Wm. S. Woodruff and Saml. Chapman. On motion, the report of the com mittee was received and adopted. On motion, the delegates for this precinct present at the County Conven tion were authorized to fi'l any vacan cies that might occur from non-attendance. On motion, Messrs. Hathaway, Porter and Maxwell were elected to constitute a precinct committee, with authority to call precinct meetings whenever, ia their judgment, it was deemed necessary. On motion, the meeting adjourned. II. D. Hathaway, Chairman. G. W. Fairfield, Sec'y. WARMING TO UEPIBUCASS. Under the above heading the Iowa State Register warns the Republicans of ihat Slate to be up and doing, else their majorities may be materially re duced, staling that the copperheads are organizing secrt, oath-beund societies all over the couLtry, into which they are endeavoring to entrap every man of conservative tendencies, and every "sore-Lead'' in the Republican ranks. The warning of the Register is timely and th adviaa good, and will apply as well to Nebraska as to Iowa. Those secret, oath-bound societies are being organized all ever the country, and rneetingt are held almost nightly in every county in this State. Let Re publicans arouse themselves if they would save the country from ancther rebellion. VTIIAT HAVE THEY DOXE ? A little copperhead sheet published occasionally at Bellevue, called the Times, enumerates the classes cf per sons excluded from the provisions of the recent Amnesty proclamation, and then asks: " Why it is that these persons, or at least those included in the first clause, should be excluded from its provisions, we cannot well understand. What have they done more than fibers? The simple fact of thin be ing at heads of Departments, ccc, does noi in our estimation; nor we believe in the estimation of the people at largp; nor of the law, make them more cul pable than others. They merely en tered in a dilfercit sphere ; and that, too, by the action of those wao are granted free pardon. If they have been guilty of treason, it is eimply treason and nothing more " Sure enough, what have these poor iuncccnt3 done that th?y should no; be returned to the control of the govern ment ? We ail know that they wcro the leading spirits ia a little "unpleas antness" which has cost the country the lives of a few hundred thousand of her best citizens, and a few millions in treasure ; but, then, what does that amount to when compared with the "rights" of those noble spirits who were "simply heads of Departments, &.c?" We know very well that they penned up a few thousands of "Lin con hirelings" at Andersonville and starved them la death ; but then it was, no doubt, amusement for those brave and patriotic men to witness the writh ings and the death struggles of the "greasy mechanic" and "small fisted farmers," who dared to oppose them when they were committing "simply treason and nothing: more." We doubt not it is difficult for a full-blooded cop perhead to "well understand" why these men should not receive a full and froc pardon, and be allowed to dictate how this government should be con ducted. But then, there are a goodly number of people in this country whose friends suffered the tortures of Ander sonville and Libby who see the thing in a different light, and who can "well understand" why men who have com mitted "simply treasoa" and murder, should no, be entitled to a free pardon until the fruits of the victory which saved to u a government are entirely secured. THE COOTY t'OXTKXTIOS. On Saturday next the Republican County Convention will meet in this city for the purpose of placing before the p?on!e nominees for the several f fices to b filled at the election to b hell in October next. The positions to hi filled are cer tainly responsible ones, poit;ons in rf erence to the discharge of the duties of which every citizen sf the County cf Cass should feel a lively interest. That there will bo this lively interest felt, that a spirit of harmony and good feeling will prevail, and that '.here will be a general disposition en th part of tho'e who hive been doh-gat&d by :he people as their representatives to select the very best men fjr tho sev eral positions, regardless of indiviiiuii preferences, is cur sincere wish, a J that this will be so we have no doubt. With strong and suitable nominees be fore the psople, together with the com plete discharge of cur duties and a full vote, there can be but little question as to the victory which will crown our efforts at the close of the campaign. VcZT' The common people of the Democratic party have not one word to say as to who shall be their standard bearers they are not allowed to inter fere. The party is run by a few self styled leaders who. will '-rule cr ruin" even in their own party. When the "ring" members see a prospect of de feat in their nominating conventions, they stuff the baliol-box on their party supporters and run the thing just as they want it. Look at the recent con vention in Omaha precinct, where the "ring" polled a heavier vote than the entire Democratic vote of the precinct. Would it not be policy for the common people of the Democratic party to urge a registry for their party conventions? EST The Buffalo Express says: "The removal of Stanton shows con clusively that Mr. Johnson has deter mined to sever all ties between him se'f and the Republican party." "Ties between Johnson and the Republican party" ia good ab - q-ial to the rope between the mob u.J its victim. JVews. Which jdoes theAVirs denominate "as the "mob" and which the "victim," and is the rope actually severed ? JKSAmong the clerks in the Treas ury Department ia a man who is a brother of the ex-rebel commodore, wh3, at the time of General Early's attack on this city, went through the lines to the rebel head quarters, and informed General Early tnat the city ws defended by militia only, and could easily be taken. For this act he was tried and sentenced to be hung. He was subquently pardoned, and is now making up fcr lost time as a clerk in the Government employ. Kor the IIhbald Great Moral Exhibition at AsJa- land A Wonderful Demon stration of Bodily Contortion and Mental Power Com bined. Ani.A-D, Saunders Co., ) Sept. lCib, 18G7. J Mr. Edito: : Knowing your desire to keep the public informed concerning all things that may have a tendency to improve their mental or physical con dition ia life, I hereby transmit a copy of the proceedings of the great all-hocey-before - and - all-viuegar-after- election convention, that was held in this place on Saturday last. About two weeks since, the great ccnsolidators no-party-lines astradle - of - the- fence, now you see it and now you don't, all done by a simple twist cf the wrist, very easy if y&u knew how nan, was seen by the light of the ' settin' sun," perambulating the streets of cur "burg" with a mammoth while-wash BRUSH on his shoulder, a three gallon paste pot in his hand, and a huge roll of posters under his arm. Whither gocst thcu, and for what circus posteth thou ? inquired Lis anxious friends. A frown spread o'er his classic couaten mice at these inquiries, and ho ex claimed in language far sounding, "I announce to you the approach of that milienium whea the lion and the lamb shall lie down together, especially the lion, the inauguration of which will occur on the fourteenth day of this the ninth month of the year, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-seven. For further particulars see these posters." All this he exclaimed as with a flourish of the white wash BRUSH he stuck a poster for the information of the mul titude which declared that there would b a "Union Mass Convention" on the day last above mentioned, at two o'clock, p. m. , for the purpose of nominating candidates to be "elected'' at the October election. The day and hour thus de creed at last arrived, and the lions be gan to congregate, but "nary" lamb. It wa3 remarked by those who observed closely that the lion cf the mammoth while wash BIIUSII looked very much disappointed at the non-appearance of the Iambs, and at last concluded to lay aside the vestments of the lion and as sume those of the lamb, in order that the law and the j:os.r$ might be ful filled. Having so prepared himself that ho locked very lamb-like, he came meekly forward to the altar and deliv cred himself thusly: "O, ye lion who Lunger for the herbage of thf lambs! behold the disconcolation that is in our midst. We have anticipated a pleasant feast in the pastures of the lambs, but they heed not the law and tho por-icrs, and seek to set at naught the fulfillment thereof; therefore, it is meet that I, who have fattend at th- manger cf the lambs and roamed in ihe forest with the lion?, should be lain on the altar as a sacrifice that the proc l itnation of the posters may be fulfilled. Let us commence the ceremonies by singV.g that familiar hymn " I love to U- al, &c." " After sinning, he of ihe mammoth u-J'ite. wash BRUSH placing himself astride tho altar, even s he sits astride the fence politically, declared unto the assembled lions which cf them should occupy high places in cur various county offices for the coming two years, and at the same time expressed his sorrow that there was not left, after having cared for all the lions, a few crcod places for some of the lambs; and he then exhorted the lion3 to go out among the lambs and say unto them, that by earnestly supporting those whom he had so decreed, they would beautifully exemplify that text, "Love thy enemies;" and he further said that by such support the lambs would un doubtedly everlastingly crucify them selves; but then they should reflect on the pitho3 of that Sabbath School hymn " I wcnld not live always, Ac." And there ended the Hippo-humbug convention, or effort on the part of a few men who fcr a much less price than Judas received, would sell their principles, and by the aid of a few Re publican rotes which they will not get, gobble up the various county offices at the coming election. They will be apt to find a large sized flea in their ears on the eighth of October, and be thoroughly convinced that the no party principle is most effectually played out ia Saunders county. Obsebvck. iti?" A copperhead paper says: "You cheated the Irish and others to go down South and fight your negro war out. It tvas a failure and cheat from beginning to end." We know not where the above quotation originated, but it is being copied in numerous cop psrhead papers, and we presume ii sanctioned by (he leaders as a part of the party creed. Do the few (and they are very few) who served in the army and who vote the copperhead ticket endorse "the sentiment that the war was "a failure and a cheat?" LATEST XCTS. Washinoto, Sept. 17. The Intelligencer declares that the judiciary is simply the judjre of the . . a - t ... law, ana tnat me rresuent is judge of those public events, the combinations of which threaten to overthrow ihe Con stitution and supremacy of the law. Therefore, h urges tho President to exert ail Lis authority to preserve the Constitution and put down what it calls the wide-spreading conspiracy to over throw the Constitution as evinced in the enforcement of the reconstruction laws. Tho editor hasrecent'y had frequent interviews with the President and un usual significance is attached to the ed itorial. It is learned positively to-day that Grant has summoned Sbe.ril.in and Sickles h:re for consultation. The Attorney General is over whelmed with letters asking if the re cent amnesty proclamation gives thr right cf suffrage. Fessenden has written a letter de nying that he ever expressed any opinion in regard to impeachment. Schofield's order for an election on October 22J, thus disregarding the Presidmt's suggestion that all the elec tions should occur on November ltt, elicits considerable comment. The President's friends say thit he will remove Schofield ualess he post pones the election. The Republican's special says John son is unswerving. His friends openly sny that he lacks courage to enforce these bold meas ures. J3F The Montana Post says : "An exploring pnrty which has been to the head waters of the Yellow Stone river, has just returned, and reports seeing one of the greatest wonders of the world. For eight days they trav eled through a volcanic country, emit ting a blue flame and living streams of molten brimstone. The country was smooth and rolling, with long, level plains intervening. On the summits of these rolling mounds were craters from feur to eight feet in diameter, and ev erywhere on the level pleins were smaller craters, from four to tix inches, from which streamed a blaze and con stant whistling sound. The hollow ground resounded beneath their feet aj they traveled,- and every moment seemed to break throuch. Not a liv ing thing was seen in that vicinity. The explorers gave it tho significant appellation of Hell." The colored voters of Tennes see Laving voted the Republican ticket, notwithstanding all the coaxing and shreatening practiced upon them by the Conservatives," thereupon one cf tha rebel prints, the Columbia Ihruld, de clare? : "The irrepressible conflict has be iun, end no human power can stay it in Tennessee. Tennessee must either 1, all n-liilO or all Unrlr. Killft iJ u-uifes or the blacks must hare Tcnnts see within the next two years." It will only te necessary iu order to nrevriit this forcible exodu?, for the darkies to vote the copperhead ticktt. That will stay the irrepressible con flict. Any man, white cr black, fool, thief or loafer, who supports the "reg ular Democratic ticket," is hail fellow well met, and no discount on account of color, race, condition or character. A significant indicaiiton of the drift cf President Jchnson's Adminis tration is furnished in the fact that he. has removed the patriotic Dr. Libber frcm the care of the Bureau of Rebel Archives, and ordered the Burt ai closed. He thus attempts to cut off tho people from access to a most valuable magazine of information in regard lo the secret histcry of ihe rebellion, an 1 tha connection with i; of Ccppeihcad leaders in the North. Under the new rule thus inaugurated, soma of the most important record., especially those implicating Northern Copperheads in the rebellion, will, no doubt, either be destroyed or permanently tuppresie-i. This is one cf the preliminary steps towards opening the Presidential cam paign in behalf of the Democracy. CO" Soldiers throughout the count. , are cautioned against parties represe- . iug themselves to be sent frcm Wash ington, wiih instructions to soldiers a; " claim agents for the collection of adu -tional bounties, and also stating tht tho soldiers of 1SGI are entitled to oi hundred and sixty acres cf land. Th . object of these parties appears to be to obtain the dates, numbers of regiments, and officers' signatures as they appear upon discharge papers; with these dates fcrged applications for pay would probably bo made out. Several of these parties have been discovered in Ohio and Indiana. JKf-Says a Charlestonletter: "The rebels great bugbear now is the North ern school marra.
