"Pursuant to notics, the meeting cal- ed to consider the best means of sustain- ng the country in its perilous position. convened, and was called to order by J. Gregory, Esq., .whon Tho Hon. John P. McGregor was chosen Chairman whereupon ho took ho chair, and submitted an able and el- oquent address to the people present, on ha aim and objects of the Union move- ment the peril of the country, This Union meeting accomplished all, aye, more than its most sanguine friends inticipated it would. It came up fully to the requirements of the call. Politi- cal wire pullers, before, and since its ad- onrnmcnt seek to ridiculejts importance, and thwart its patriotic object, with what success, will be seen. We were in Madison on Tuesday evening of last week a fhort time before the Convention adjourned, and fora day and a half afterwards, and had a fortun- ate opportunity of seeing and conversing with uaany men from different parts of our State. They almost invariably spoke with patriotic; feeling in favor of banish- ing "every parly distinction, watchword, and arid iu favor of a of parties for the sake of the Un and wore evidently hopeful of its I being accomplished. Below we give the lesolritions passed, and tho address put forth to the people by the Convention. By that it will be seen that a People's Slate Convention is culled to meet at Madison ou the 24th inst. Tho .Republican Convention meets on the 25th. The Peoples' Convention '.ion will probably meet, and adjourn on the 24th, and a conference vrill take place between the two conventions, with a view of nominating a common ticket, upon n platform that will meet tho ap- probation ofall Union loving citizens. regret that wo have only upace in this issue for the resolutions and tha ad- dress given below Resolved. That it becomes the duty of ev'ry patriot to- lay aside the little weapons of his partisan warfare and look with a single eye and and undivided soul to the vast and paramount interests of our com- mon country. Resolved, That, without reference to past political differences, we nro in favor of the nomination of Mich men for tho va- rious offices as will, with all the power of the state, sustain the Administration in its exertions to put down the exist- ing rebellion. .Resolved, That it is the duty of all loyal and patriotic citizens to give the Administration in power a hearty nnd unwavering support until the rebellion is put down, and the integrity ol the Union and tho supremacy of the Constitution as it is, without amendment or compromise, is fully established in all the states. To the Electors of the State of Wisconsin: The Union men of the State of Wis- consin iu Convention assembled, beg leave to express to you their views upon the state of tho country and the duty of the loyal citizens in this most trying hour. Upon the great question of maintain- ing tbe Goveiimient and bearing np its hands in every way within our power, until this wicked rebellion is utterly and entirely crushed out, and the old flag shall be respected iu all tha states of this Union, "and in each and every part thereof" there c.in bu but one opinion. The only question for all of us to dc- co-operation of the minority. Let us not encourage onr enemies by a seeming difference of opinion where there is none, nor allow ourselves by reviving old is- sues, to support with loss zeal a govern- ment whose mission Js the salvation of onr country. As in the revolution there was no division of the people except in- to patriots and torics, so in this rebellion let there be no division except as men are either patriots or traitoia. In thus join- ing in one common band for tins great object, no citizen is asked or required to sacrifice a single principle. It is not be- lieved that a single traitor can be found in our midst ;-bul to a close observer of current events, it is apparent that the warmth and ardor of many good men have already abated under the chilling and selfish appeals, for pnrty organiza- tions, and to avert this great calamity is the chief object to be abtained by In the language of Hon. Joseph Holt, "We are for this Uuion without condi- and indivisible, now and for- its preservation at any or every cost of and treasure, against all its assailants, and against any and every CA3TP CORRESPONDENCE. Hr-ABQOAaTzns 4th REG. Wis. VOL., C-SMF CALL, JlD., XEiE THE REI.AY HoUSK, Aug. EDITORS STAB will see from the-head- ing of th is, that vre hare rot charged our quar- tets smce I vrrote yon last. We hare been held in readiness to march at a moment's warning, for tile past week, but hare not received the said as think it a matter of some doubt whether we move at present-. We were informed that we had bBen assigned to Gen. King's composed of the 2nd, 5th and Gth Regiments, Wisconsin Volun- have not yet ascertained that this is tree. To-day, it is said that a petition numer- otlaly sigrred br the inhabitants of this and the two adjoining counties, asking that we remain here, had been sefrt to'tba War Department, and that the Department had decided to com- ply with the prayer of the p.tition. I trust this is not so, as it would be gross injusljce to the officers and men composing the regiment. I think that the very reasons given for asking that we remain, are the strongest reasons for our being sent forward. During the stay of other Regiments at this plaae, great complaint was made by the people, of the soldiers corn- compromise that may be proposed to be j mitting depredations upon their property, par made under the guns of the rebels." It is now concealed that the hope is entertained and cherished, that is a good and acceptable ticket is presented by the Union Convention, composed of loyal, energetic, economical men, that the ex- isting organizations will forego making any nominations, and the energy of the whole people may be directed to one ob- ject, and voice of party strife be hush- ed. To, accomplish these great ends, fellow citizens, call upon yon to lore- go the discussions of party questions and party nominations, and thus avoid any and all discussions upon the caoses of the present war in brief to merge the partisan into the patriot, and rally to the support of the Constitution and the Union, and the. support of such men, and such only, as aru willing for these groat ends, to ,waive party for country, and ate for "Union for Ike sake of the Union." For the purpose of practically accom- plishing this good result, it is recom- mended that the electors of the state, without distinction of parly, assemble iu their respective Assembly at such time and place, as to them shall seem best, and select two delegates for each district, to attend a Union State Convention, to behold at the Assembly Chambsr in tho city of Madison, on Tuesday, the 24lh day of September, inst. at 10 o'clock a, m., to nominate a Union Ticket, to bo composed of loyal, energet- ic, honest, and economical men, to be supported at the eusuing State election.

MOFFATT, POLICE JUSTICE, Oi'KiOE hi Kickord's B'ock, tormiue is, how this result can be most certainly nnd speed ty accomplished. Does it need argument to prove that we are not best serving our country in at- tending party conventions, making party nominations, urging the election of party candidates, and at last but not least, in framing party platfor rts, to be fought over, attacked and defended, explained and expended until bitterness and ill- feeling has taken the place in our hearts, that should otherwise be filled with patriotic devotion to- our troubled conn- try t It would seem that in this critical hcrar, while a wicked ami powerful foe THE NO PARTY FEEDING AMONG SOLDIERS. The sentiments expressed by onr war correspondent on the subject of a Union of parties until the rebellion is suppress- ed, prevades almost universally the en- tire army. Tha soldier sees this matter in its true light. He is not govered by nsoruid, narrow-contracted, party policy, but has gone forth from home and kin- dred to peril his life for our, and his country, having forgotten his party predi- lictiona until the war is and is gov- erned by the higher, nobler, and more I exalted sentiment of heroically fight- j ing for 'Our Country our whole Country) and nothing but our Country." From many private letters we have received, and seen from members of the Hudson City Guards, all of them of late, refer in a feeling manner to the position the Star has assumed, and the course it advocates, and wish it and the movement to blend all parties into one great loy- al party of the Union, GOD speed. Did we feel at liberty to do so we could give many noble, and patriotic. quotations from the private letters of those brave boys who were strong partisans a short time before they left here, to fight under the "old flag" the battles of our cunntry. I1ON. M. S. GIBSON. Some of the papers in this part of the State are urging the claims of 31. S. Gibson of this city for the office of Bank Comptroller. Mr. Gibson is on excellent business man. and is thoroughly posted upon 'banks and banking." As a Union mnn upon a union ticket, we shochl be pleased to support him, but we never can as a Republican. ticularly upon their gardens. No occasion for complaints of this kind have been given by the men of this Regiment; but to the contrary, nt the request of Col. men have re- frained from ever going upon tbe premises of that objected to their coming there, except in the discharge of their duties. ITon-, a good soldier is a cross between a saint and hero, and is certainly called upon .to exercise the virtues of both. Our duties here call into action the virtues of the saint more than the hero. The history of the world, from the beginning up to the present time, has shown that all saints are heroes, but the reverse of this u far from true, for the same authority shows that many who have established their claim to the title of hero (atleast in its common acceptation) have shown quite as clearly that they had no claims to the title of saints, ilen who Trill du- eharge the arduous and tedious duties required of us here, would never run, on the field of. battle. To suppose that oar men have been so sparing of the property of those who are openly denouncing the Government, and de- claring their sympathy for the rebels, from in- clination, is not to be supposzd, and the only reason for it that can be given is that they are 1 good soldiers, and have done so iu obedience to the orders of their superiors, and the reward of this good behevior, is to bn, tha orders of the War Department to roraiun where we arc. In war, the post of honor is the post of danger, nnd having proved ourselves faithful orera few, it is but right that we should be keepers over many. If the faithful discharge of our duties, has earned us the privilege of remaining in the rear, we shall be very likely to snmc oth- ci course to enable us to get to the front, where we desire to be. regiments composed of men vastly interior to ours in physical abil- ity, the general character of the men, discip- line and drill, are passing us, on the way to the ting a disunion at home. Now, the army is united by a common feeling that of devotion to the Country. They have not deemed it necessary or expedient to enquire whether the officers under whom they are called upon to volunteer, were Democrats or Republicans, but simply whether they vrere devoted to the cause, and I believe that Democrats will fight equally well under a Republican or a Demo- cratic captain. It is strange indeed, if those who remain at home, cannot do what it is nec- essary for them to do now, to aid in carrying on the war, as well under one as the other. There 15, and can be but one issue before the people until tins war is ended, and that is, for or against the Government. No half-way man can, or should bs tolerated. No man who is not earnest, sincere, and active in his devotion to the country now, should be placed in anypo- sition. And he.who 13 made so should be placed in the prese'rii. Squad No. 3 ia called to supper, and the tar- dy man at that call is not the LITTL-K we are compelled to iard ciutv. Sicne of action, while stay here doing the True, the work we are doing is as necessary to be done as the fighting is. but it is not true that it is necessary that the best soldiers should bo employed in doing it. During our st-.iv here the regiment made rapid improvement iu their drill, and are now entirely qualified to go into action, where they earnestly desire to be. I trust ami hope that the Department will not tamper with the spirits ofsn good n Regimont in such a manner. The report thtit -we-werc to move forward im- mediately, and the receiving their pay for tbe last two months has served to rouse the men up, and the camp has been mnro usually live- THE HIVER FALLS CONVENTION. Tbe Republican Assembly District Conven- tion, called for the purpose of electing two delegates to the Republican State Convention, met at River Fulls yesterday. It is generally known that thsre were two sets of Delegates from St. Croix elected under the call of the Chairman of the County Committee (Sir. and those elected under'a call signed by the balance of the same committee, Jlessi-s. Jl-.xpes, Vanslyks, and Fulton. The Clough delegates were called the straight Republican delegation, while the others were iii favor of instructing the delegates elected to 'the State Convention to go in for a union tick- et. Tbe Pierce county delegates were united in favor of a union ticket. The Convention was called to order by John Dale, and Stephen Collins elected Chairman, pro tern. Sir. Herrick (doughs delegate) nom- inated Joseph Green for Secretary. Messrs M. A. Fulton, J. B. Gray, Dr. Van Slyke and others, objected to'the election of Mr. Green as Secretary, because it was not known that he had any business in tho Conven- tion, They were in favor of giving Pierce county tue temporary organization of the Con- vention, because there was no question as to the rights of the fierce county delegation to seats. ilr. Hcrriek's motion was lost; and Doctor Andrews elected Secretary. A Committee on credentials was appointed, w'.iich committee reported that as the creden- tials of both of the St. Croix delegations ap- peared fair, thev would recommend that both sets be admitted to seats Lu the Convention, and that the Pierce county delegates be allowed twelve votes. The report of the com- mittee was adopted. On motion of Mr. Gibson, the tcmparnry of- ficers were made the permanent officers of the convention. Mr. then offered the following Resolved, That the delegates to be elected at this Convention, to attend the Republican State Convention, to be held at Madison on the 25th of and they are hereby instruct- ed to use their influence to nominate a State ticket without respect to political That in case such nomination cannot be made, then said delegates to withdraw, and act no further with said State Convention. ilr. Gibson moved to lav the resolution on the table for the present. Was in favor of the resolution almost, bub was of the opinion that the delegates to the State Convention should be first elected, and then resolutions adopted. Messrs, Gray, Gibbs, Gunn, Van Slyke and others were in favor of the resolution, because they believed the mas.i of the Republicans wanted men sent to the State Convention who ID" The rifcr ia still rising.

Tbo division of the loyal citizens of a stale into two or more parties, mast re- sult in the discussion of matters pertain- ing to origin and prosecution of the war as the only prominent subject before the people. Such discussion -would in the end embitter the different, parties against each other so far that those ob- taining power might fail to secun the cooled their ardor wonderfully, and the De- partment, for their action, receive at their hands, our "curses, not loud but deep." The members of Company '-G" think they have great cause of complaint against the gen- j tlcman who took charge of the uniforms sent home from Racine. For each and every pack- age placf d in the box in which they were sent, he was pail by the soldiers more than double what he himself said it would cost to take them home, viz. he said ten cents apiece would pay for it, and they paid him twenty-five. On the arrival of the articles in letters from their friends there, recently received here were required by the gentleman who had so kindly taken charge of them, to pay from twenty-five to fifty cents, for the convey- ance of each package in the bos. A more contemptab'.e swindle was never perpetrated. Would it not be well for- the County mittee to look out this matter, and before they demand a return of the uniforms sent home by the members of the company, to either repay the amount paid for the transportation of them, or compel the man who extorted it from them, to refund it I turn him over to- TOO v-ith tills statement of the trusting that you will do TOOT utmost fo prevent this kind of swindling being perpetrated on the absent at least, will expose the perpetrator.

The amendment was lost and the original resolution adopted by a vote of 12 to 6. On motion tho Convention then preceded to elect delegates to the State Convention, and ilr. Gregory oflTered the name of John Corn- stock as tho delegate from St. Croix county. Mr Gibson then arose, and in behalf of the Clongh delegation, said the convention was not running to suit their constituents, and that they felt it their duty to withdraw from the Conven- tion. On motion of.Mr. Gray the disaffected dele- gates vrere allowed to secede ,with the thanks of the convention for the time they had remain- ed. Mr. Coaistock was ucanimously elected as a delegate to the State Convention. OliverGibbs, jr., was nominated and nuani- mouai.- elected as a delegate from Pierce county After the transaction of other business of minor importance the Convention adjourned. THE EIGHTH KEGiMKXT.-We frad tne pleasure of meeting, when at Madison, last week, the officers, and seeing all but two companies of tho 8th Wisconsin regiment. The regimen': was to receive its full complement of men on Mon- day last. This regiment will be fully equal in all important requisites of ofiieera and men, to any raised in the State. Col. Murphy takes hold of affairs, as only an officer can who in perfectly well nwire of what he is about, and of what a Col's duties are. He isindefatigablc in looking after tlie welfare of the men, and iving them at the onset correct idens as to'a soldiora dutr. Dr. Tbornhill's friends here will not be surprised to learn that he is a favor- ite with both orticers nnd men. That the GUI- eel's at Madison, speak of the Doctor in the highest terms of praise, for his capability for the important post he holds, for his social qual- ities, and gentlemanly deportment.
