.SATURDAY KVKSINCi, OCT. 25,
TilK Nkws. The news of Thursday is
not very thrilling, yet it Is of considerable
interest. The whole country in impatient
for nn ndvunco from the Potomac. A full
month has elapsed since tli bloody buttle
of Autictain. The feeling is general that
this time is sufficient for rent, recuperation,
and all necessary reorgnnizition. The
rainy season is Tatt approaching, nnd north
ern Virginia, will soon be nn extensive
quagmire, impiisiiblo for heavy trains.
This wut the en so lust winter, it will be ho
this. This quiet on the Potomac, however,
may bo only nppnrcnt, not real. We have
blind hints of u heavy forco concentrating
nnder Ilelnlzlcmnn, in the reur of the rebel
army. This delay may bo necessary for
him to get into position. If so, nil rhjbl.
"When the bugle does sound on to Rich
ntonl," there will be bloody work. The
Union army c.innot fail this lime. The
stake is too great, the interest involved
too nwmcntntH. When tho serried le
gions of freedom's warriors, gathered on
the bank of the Potomac, fImII hear the
bugle notes of onward," the world will
breath with n huhed breath. The broken
' segments of the on'y free Government in the
world will be tho pad monuments of their
defeat tho speedy restoration of a once
gloriom and still mi. -lily Union, tho fruits
of victory. Gen. SehoflVId ha cleared .M is
sourl of reb.-l hordes, and is following them
up In Arkunas. Matters are last coming
to a fitcns in the Western D-'partment.
The rebel Morgan has succeeded in captur
ing and destroying two supply trains in
Kentucky. Nothing important Irom

No news yesterday.
Ustox Paiity. We publish on tho out
: .fide of this Ismiu the proceedings of the
Convention held at Salem, on the lllh, for
'.ilio, permanent organization of tho Union
".party in this Slate. Such nn organization
.. It eminently proper. Without it, tho Union
party Is but a jux'apo'illonor old pnitle.
" i:acb striving to preserve Its political idont
" ity. Under theso circumstances, it will
ever wont unity of purpose, harmony of
action and solidity of organization. Tim
- porary organizations lack essential elu
menlH of power. They arc nn admisHion
that tho rrrlnciplPB upon which they are
founded are tf too cvanecentnnd unsuHtan
tial a nature to support a permanent organ
ization. TMa Ih not true r tho principles
underlying tlic Union party of, this State.
They ato dotp enough, broad enough, and
holld enough to support a permunent su
perstructure. Tho fact that theso princi
ples vray soon become universal, is no ob
jection to permanent, organization. The
." object hnd in view by tho organization ir
any paity. Istosecuro tho triumph of the
' iprinciplea upon which it is based. But it
inaybo'hald that new Issues may arise ad
" Mutt ft,' This U no objection to aperma,-
'nent.organlzatlon. New issues havo been
' presenting' themselves, for tho decision of
the Aacrlcan people, ever slnco the Gov
ernment went Into operation, and will con
stantly be arising as long as tho Govern
men t'lias an existence. This objection lies
with 'ju mora 'force aghwt tjfnanijnt,
orgasdou of tb Union party than It
docs against tlie.perraaoeut organization of
any other party. If It was allowed at all,
it would.defeat alt attempts to organize any
partyl ' Tile parties urging this objection
have always au'swered It by tkelr actions.

equally infamous Viltandlghain has been

The Republicans have carried the State

gained three Congressmen in that State.
These elections give the denial, emphati
cally, to the boasting cqut so olteu heard
from certain ncjntlvo patriots, that a vast
majority of tho army are democrats. It
tarns that there are democrat enough Itt at home,
