The Lackawana and Havana had good trips; the packets light trips. The Charmer in backing out this morning was blown around by a strong wind, her bow striking the Armada and breaking out three stationary fenders, braces, and guard chains. She was then blown npon the bow of the Mollie Norton, cutting in the guard of the Charmer to her hlL The damage was not serious. She left for Cincinnati on time. Capt Henry Miller bought to-day of Capt medley a half interest in the Fanny Brandeis, and he now owns seven-eighths of the boat The price paid was $3,150 cash. Kitt Rudd owns a one-eighth interest She enters the Cumberland river trade on Wednesday. Capt Ross had a satisfactory interview with the city authorities to-day relative to the Congressional sxcursion. He left for Paducah on the Armada. Gov. Bramlette is here, and speaks tonight in the Crescent City Hall. He was serenaded at the American House last night PORT items. Yesterday being Sunday, there was little or no business transacted on the wharf, and but few arrivals or departures. Among the boats due here is the Charmer, from St Louis, bonnd for Cincinnati, for which place she has a lot of cement engaged at this port The Indiana, Capt R. E. Neal, is due from Cairo to-day, and will commence loading for New Orleans. She is advertised to leave on Thursday next at 5 o'clock. Passengers and shippers must feel rejoiced that the fall season is about to be fully inaugurated, as the appearance of the well-tried and reliable favorite in the Lonisvllle and New Orleans trade has verified the fact The migration of the martins and the appearance of the wild pigeons are no surer indication of the approach of winter than the announcement that tbe great packet Indiana has resumed her trips is the sure guarantee that the boating season has again fairly opened. She is large, stanch and comfortable, as well as taf and a superior boat for live stock. The steamer Dexter, Capt Montgomery's new clipper, came into port Saturday from Cairo, where she had been laid up during the summer. She will soon take the track in the New Orleans trade. The mammoth steamer Mississippi last week came very near making one of the most disastrous records on the Western waters. She had been chartered, together with the steamers Belle of Alton and Lady Gay, to convey the Free Masons on a grand excursion of the Nights Templar from St Louis, and was literally crowded with people, when, soon after leaving port, Bhe struck one of the innumerable sunken wrecks that cumber the harbor, and a hole twelve feet in length was made in her hull, and she commenced filling with water on the instant, and the lives of hundreds were in jeopardy; bat through the coolness and skill of her officers, disaster was averted and scarce a dozen passengers knew of the accident She was immediately run across the river at full steam on the bar at East St Louib, and sunk in shoal water, the passengers thinking she was only aground. SEPTEMBER 21, 1868. Radical Rule. The Great Dancer ot Its Contfnnnvee. From ths National intclllcencer. The prosperity of the United States is beyond question, if the wounds of war are bo healed as to secure the restoration of the Union in fact, as well as in name. The question for those who desire the spFediest return of the old days of wonderful growth and the re-establishment of tbe national credit, is which party is most likely to restore the reign of good feeling throughout the country. Radical organs tell us that if Seymour and Blair are elected there will be war; but if that means anything, it means that their party do not propose to submit to the will of the majority. In the event of the election of Seymour and Blair, there can be no disturbance unless created by the recusant minority. The Democracy certainly will have no oocaBion to resort to arms, unless to quell violent resistance to the popular verdict If Seymour and Bltir are elected, the government will be adminibtered on constitutional principles. rights of the people in the States will be respected. The disabilities now imposed on a large class of white men will be wiped out Each State wilt, without the intervention of Congress or the Executive, settle its local institutions, to Buit the people concerned. Even granting that negro suffrage will be upset, there will he a steady pressure in behalf of the negroes growing out of that provision of the constitutional amendment which excludes from the count as representative population that class of people which is excluded from the polls. But the government of each State will be framed to suit the majority of the people, and will be left in the hands of its most intelligent and experienced classes. The Democracy will be restrained from any excesses in national politics, even if they had the disposition, by a radical Senate. The true theory of our government, as one of checks and balances, will be restored, and conciliation and compromise will inevitably be the order of the day. We shall have peace; and with peace, prosperity. On the other hand, if the radicals are left in power they will be more violent even than heretofore. That disposition which leads them to denounce as rebels all who differ from them in opinion will prompt them to greater acts of intolerance than have marked their history for the last fonr years. The Executive may not be farther assailed, for the reason that is substantially shorn of its prerogatives, and the further reason that General Grant has declared that he will have no policy. Bat the Supreme Court -will be manipulated, and its functions overridden utterly by the legislative power. That spirit of bitterness towards the South which is so characteristic of the radicals will find expression in further acts of legislative hostility, which will engender ill feeling down there in turn; and instead of having peace and good feeling, we will convert the whole South into Tennessees, if not Ireland s. You cannot pacify the South by putting its meanest secessionists like the Holdens and the Hunnicutts and Joe Browns in power, even if you ally with them its most intelligent or its most stupid negroes. Yet this is precisely what the radical policy has done, and is likely to continue to do. The electionof Grant and Colfax will be substantially the completion of an utter revolution in the character of the government, changing it from one of constitutional limitations on the part of Con gress to one of supreme Congressional authority. No matter what the professions of the adherents of Congress are, thete are the facts. It has disregarded the Constitution. It has exercised powers never vested in it It has trampled on the Executive and assailed- the functions of the Supreme Court, and if endorsed by the popular verdict, its usurpations will be continued until the entire structure of the government will be changed, and the Constitution will become a dead letter in the hands of an arrogant Congressional majority. This is the serious danger wnicn threatens tne republic, wmcn snouia induce all thoughtful citizens to work with might and main for the election cf Seymour and Blair. Negro Suffrage. A Word A boat lu Retroaction. From the New York World. The question of negro suffrage amounts to this: Are you willing that eight hundred thousand ignorant negroes should have a hand in ruling you? If a white majority appears against you at the polls you can submit; you feel that it is a verdict against yon by your peers. Bat would you, or coald you, feel thus in case this majority was made up against you by a thick-lipped, grinning, ignorant, Obi-worshipping crew of cotton-pickers whom your money has just set free? Most certainly you could not; and as these majorities would be very frequent, the discontents they would engender would become so grave at last as to eventuate in even greater turmoil than we now endure. But it may be said negro majorities could never oe of more than local occurrence, the white majority in a general election being overwhelming. So far from this being the case, eight hundred thousand voters would be to judge the future by the past, in any question of great public import, the balance of powsr; when cast, is the power. Eight hundred thousand negro votes are represented in States by ten out of; in the Senate by twenty Senators; in the House by fifty Representatives; in the Electoral College by seventy votes out of 317. Ten States, twenty Senatorial votes, fifty Representative votes, and seventy votes in the Electoral College, are so respectable a balance of power that it may be doubted whether there has ever been a division of parties in this country where the casting of that balance would not have irrevocably turned the scalp. If it be thought that this is in future only, and may be and may not be, lt up look to the past Have not these 830.000 texro votes torn down and setup State governments, crammed Congress with Senators and Representatives, aad dictated to a grea( party, by tbe necessity that party was under of conciliating them, a platform? Eight hundred thousand negro votes is a tremendous power, and before it is legalized out of its present illegality, it would be well to reflect whom it will ultimately benefit Already the Southern Soliticians, that most astute and nn-inching race of men, are winning it over, and if negro suffrage is to become a fixed fact in this country, it will also he a fixed fact that whereas with the slave the Southern white cast one vote, with the enfranchised freed man he will cast two. It is not whether the negro is to rule the South, but whether he is to rule us as well That's the question. Science. ncCoole and Heennn to Flsht. From the St. Lonis Dispatch ISlh. The following letter, which fully explains itself, was received by Mike McCoole, yesterday morning: Cincinnati, Sept 11. Mike McCoole: SiR'l Hearing so much talk in tbe newspapers concerning a meeting between yourself and John C. Heenan, I want to know from headquarters," whether you intend fighting or not Mr. Heenan has sent me a forfeit of $2,500 to make the match for $10,000, play or pay. Now, if you mean business name any good Bporting man or any other kind of man so he is good. We then can put up the forfeit and afterwards there will be no trouble, as Mr. Heenau'a reputation as an honorable pugilist and sporting man is beyond reproach. I suggest Mr. Frank Queen, of the New York Clipper, because I think him a just and proper man to hold stakes. But they sry you object to him. When you returned to St Louis, after your unfortunate fiasco, the St Louis newspapers published a challenge from you stating that you would fight any man in this country. Now, Mr. H. is the only American pugilist, outside of Cobnrn, who has sufficient size to accept the above challenge. They also say you said when you made your match with Cobnrn you would fight Heenan, win or lose. You cannot reasonably object on account of being a married man, because you stated, since tbe above took place, your willingness to meet Coburn. However, Heenan is a married man also, consequently there is no advantage on either side. I hope this will meet with your approbation and an early answer. Yours with respect, J. FRANKLIN. In answer to the above, the'xedoubtable Mike wrote to Mr. Franklin last evening, cheerfully accepting the challenge on the condition that the battle be fought within 6fty miles of St Louis, and that Mr. Frank Queen, of the New York Clipper, be not designated as the stake-holder. The probabilities are that the two noted pugilists will come together in the ring. 1 15 1 SI 1 1 94 1 41 Milled fevllle. Tiacnn in F.ufaula.

Tbtse rains seem to be by no means proper! estimated in their Injurious effects; for they not only favor the Increase ot the worm and cause exten-filvr decay of the cotton-boll in all bottom and fertile lands, but they retard most seriously tbe work of picking out the crop, not alone by tbe time lost while raining and while the ground Is too soft to admit of this process, but by the alckoesi wti ch Invariably accompanies an4 follows tneni. With Undiminished breadth of cotton planted this year, and the unusual concuirenceoi ud varsities to It. some only of which are mentioned aoove, one and three-quarters of a million bales is, ii toe estimation of many experienced aul Intelligent men, a sufficiently high Mtimate of tbe American cotton crop for ista. The earlv receipts this year may be regarded as Indicating differently; but we should consider that the favorable weather during thescason for planting and cn'tlvatlna; the cotton crop enabled ths planters to keep vary clean and In good order the small fields thus appropriated. But tbe Buddn change which came over nearly tbe cntfru ct-tton belt of tais country, about the. beginning of August, from almost extreme drought- to nearly an incessant wet weather, canted such a shedctng of youugbollt and forms as len comparatively little rruit that could mature, even were the worms absent. It is tine that previous to thlschauge of weather the bottom bolts on upland held had become so far advanced that they couJd and did mature; and time have been picked out, and are already partlr shipped to market. On the well-drained the same of bolls on the lower llmbi were likewise sufficiently odvan ed toward maturity to repel the worm, auu have in part opened, and are being gathered.

There iray be said to be but one report now from the wl.ole cotton region tbe except'ons being too few to tiffed tbe rule and that is another wretched failure of the cotton crop.

Then was alarge sale of spring XX reporte 1 at p. which, or coursB, gives no clue to the real condition cf the market. We have already deprecated this mode of qnotlnr sales, and we Und that our contemporaries ore also doing so. We think, as we stated on a former occasion, that It Is a mistaken Idea on the part of tbe seller, and we trust It mar present Itself to tellers gnerlly In that light, so that the country may bow to understand our market. And this calls to mind another Important subject, to which we bavo thought public attention should be exiled.

A gentleman, whose veracity it may not be well to question, furnishes us tbe annexed brief rehearsal of some of the peculiar qualifications possessed by certain newly appointed officers on the Western and Atlantic railroad. He begins with Hnlbert himself, but as his biography of that arch-manipulator, to our own knowledge, falls far short of the whole truth, we shall defer its pnblication with a view of adding thereto certain important fmendmenti now under (preparation. Says he: Uig Fatty, alias A L. Harris, the Supervisor of the road, is from practice a goud judge of whisky. He would be a tolerably fair billiard-player were it not for his enormous size. He is a Western man, and came to Georgia since the war, where he haB gained some notoriety as mail agent It is hardly necessary to remark that he is a bankrupt Fatty is said to be quite active a good jumper. In this there may be some truth, for he certainly jumped from nothing up to Supervisor of the State road. Should he not at an early day resign, and let some honest man take his place, we shall be constrained to tell the ash-hopper tale on him, and perhaps allude to the mail-bags found on his place after he turned up a Southern planter. Moses G. -Collins, a Georgia scalawag and Assistant Supervisor, Is aright clever fellow. He staid at home during the war, and took good care of a soldier's wife. When the husband came "home from th- wars and claimed her, Moses resolved, in the goodness of his heart, to hold on to the lovely creature. He keeps her yet. To a "man up a tree," she and Moses might pass for man and wife. Bat Moses, with all his kind feelings, is not fit to be Assistant Supervisor. It isn't in his Hoe. The other thing is. Seduction of a near female relative is not an essential qualification of the railroader. Alpeora Pretty Hotchkiss, the Auditor, is another Northern man and bankrupt We should like to know what he was doing in Alabama so long after the war, and who supported his family at Monroe, in this State, during his absence. Mr. Hotchkiss, do you believe that you are an honest man? If yea, what think you of the creative act which "split your eyes through the leather Where did yon get the money to buy your gloves with? Mr. Baker, agent at the Dalton depot, is a scalawag Georgian. He volunteered in the first year of the war, and afterwards aided in raising a regiment before a draft or conscription was heard of in Georgia. He voluntarily held a commission in the same regiment Within the last three yean he has held every position in politics known to the country. We should tell how he took the iron-clad o-t'i in order to become a county solicitor, or about that old bill of indictment against him in the Blue Ridge circuit for gambling with a negre at 10 cents per game. Oh, no! that would never do. We Bhould like to know, however, whether Mr. Baker made any money during the war by furnishing wood to tbe federal government from the lands of absent proprietors. Milo Pratt, agent at Chattanooga, another bankrupt, is still agent, and in the interest of the tna coal-mines in Tennessee. We see Colonel Hulbert has arranged a nice little schedule on the shipment of coal from Chattanooga to Atlanta, re ducing rates to $13 80 per car load. Pratt has never resided in Georgia. His family is now at the North, and has never lived in the South. How came he to. get the appointment? Where does Governor Bullock board, and what does he ay for it? What relation is there between Pratt and tbe proprietor of the National Hotel? Is it any barm to ask why Pratt dischared tried white laborers and substituted in their stead Buch negroes as the notorious Joe Brown? Joe said he would quit the radB if they didn't give him a posish on the State road before September. He's got it Execution In Mexico. The Mexican General YTatonl Shot. From thonrownsrllle (Texai) Jtanchaxo, 5th. Since our articles were in type npon the death and supposed assassination of Gen. Pa to a we received the following dispatch from the interior of Mexico, which tells the whole tragedy. Mexfco is certainly herself again: Gen. Patoni. By order of the Supreme Government, this official, who was imprisoned at Monterey with Gen. Ortega, was some time ago liberated, with full permission to go where he pleased. Tbe day after his release he started for his home, arriving on the 18th ult, and at three o'clock next morning was taken from his bouse by Gen. Cantu, an officer under command of Escobedo, and Bhot in the barrack yard. The papers do not refer to this, but it is positively true, and is creating excitement FURTHER PARTICULARS. Gen. Patoni arrived at Durango at 3 o'clock P. M. On the following day, between 3 and 4 o'clock in tbe morning, two persons came to his house and invited him te accompany them. He went, and a short distance from his house he was suddenly surrounded by a party of about thirty men, who marched him off to the suburbs of the city and shot him. On the following day ha was buried with military honors. These are the details we have learned of the murder. It is further stated that the two individuals who took him out of his house gave him to understand that they were acting under superior orders. In our opinion this has all the features of a cold-blooded murder, and if the government will not take steps to discover the murderers and punish the perpetrators of this horrible crime, they will call down upon itself a just indignation of the people. CES. GONZALEZ ORTEGA. Private letters received here state that this General, while on his way to Zicate-cas, and just before getting there, was met by a servant of a friend of his, who told him to turn back, otherwise he would be assassinated if he attempted to get iuto towo. The General turned back at once and is now in Saltillo. It is said he iB very restless and apprehends danger of loosing his life, which he believes has been determined upon. We sincerely hope that the authorities of Coahuila will extend this gentleman all the protection in their power, for we believe that in his last manifesto he has expressed his earnest convictions and in tentions. GEaWOUTEGA's MANIFESTO. This document is too lengthy for translation, but in brief it sets forth Ortega's acknowledgment of the authority of the Juarez government, his aversion to cause disturbance in the country, and lastly, he says that if it is necessary for the peaco of the country that he should absent himself from it, he is ready to do so. Savins; Ills Scalp. ExcltlBK Experience with the Indiana. Froaa tbe 6t Loots Times. Mr. W. W.Jones furnishes the Junction City Union with an interesting account of his experience with some Indians near Fort Barker. We aunex his statement in full, and from it our readers can gather an idea of the dangers our Western men are frequently forced to meet: On August 29th I met three men on Butler creek, about twenty-five miles southeast of Fort Wallace, engaged in sinking a well; was absent about two hours; on my returning I found In-dians where I left the men referred to. Two Indians rode out to meet me. They said they were Cheyennes, and good Indians. I told them that one might advance; accordingly one came up and offered his hand, saying he was "good Indian." I took this band, and, holding to it, asked him where my men were, referring to the men I had left there. He saia they were where the other Indians were. I thought I saw treachery tn his countenance, believing all the time that the men were murdered. I rode with this Indian till I got within about thirty yards of the rest of the band, and then I saw one of my men lying dead on the ground. I at once drew my revolver, shot the Indian with me, wheeled my horse, and rode in the direction of the fort, till I found my horse failing fast, and the Indians pursuing me so close that I was compelled to dismount and take shelter in a ditch, or ravine, where I fought them till dark, killing two and probably wounding several others. After dark I stole away, and nnder cover of the night succeeded in making my escape, I was marked in four different places from their shots, but nothing serious. We have seen buried the bodies of the men murdered referred to. Their names were John H. McNeil, Isaac Burdick, aad Pat Malloy.

Register, lTtb. Late on Wednesday evening of last week, near the residence of Mr. Sand ford Adams, four miles from Springfield, on the Edgefield and Kentucky railroad, was the scene of a horrible murder. The particulars as we gather them are about as follows: On the above-named day, two strangers were seen traveling Blowly along the railroad having, left Adams's station that morning, going in the direction of Nashville. They stopped for some time at Cedar Hill, and while at this place their conduct lead the citizens to regard them with suspicion; they were discovered to be armed both having pistols. in the evening they passed Mr. Sandford Adams's, and a few after, two men, armed with double-barrel guns, rode up and inquired for them, havine learned that they had just passed, the horsemen pursued hurriedly, and in a short time talking and the report of two pistols and a gun were heard by several persons in that vicinity. Early Thursday morning 'Squire Woodard, James Long, Sandford Adams, and his two BOns went out to where they had heard the firing, to see if they could make any discoveries. The party had not gone far before they fonnd the dead body of a young man, apparently about twenty-five years old, lying in a deep pool of his own blood. Upon an examination it was discovered that abont seventeen buckshot had pierced his left side and breast. The news soon reached town, when Sheriff Boone and Constable D. L. immediately set out in pursuit of the ether party, who was seen in company with the murdered man on the previous day, supposing that he was accessory to the foul crime. He was overtaken by the officers about halfway between this place and Nashville, and brought back to Springfield and lodged in jail for safekeeping until further developments were rrade. This man, however, divulged the secret which revealed the mystery. He gave hii name as Foster, and first stated that he hailed from Florida, afterward from Arkansas. It was soon ascertained that his name was Morgan, and that he was raised in Davidson county. The murdered man's name, Morgan states, was Smith. He had been with Smith three or four days, and professes to know nothing about him. He further states to the officers that Tom Clinard and Dick Bnrgess (both young men raised in this county) were the parties who were pursuing them and committed the mnrder. Clinard shot Smith with a double-barrel gun (only one shot was fired) and then made Morgan throw his pistol down and surrender, when they gave him his choice to swear to keep the crime a secret and leave the country or share the same fate of Smith, and he chose the former. On Thursday nicht Sheriff Boone ar rested Clinard and Burgess, in 17th District, near the Montgomery line, and on Friday morning they were lodged in jail at this place to await their trial STATEMENT OF CUNARD AND BURGESS. Clinard freely aonfessea to the killing of Smith, and says that he would do so again under the same circumstances, Smith having previously threatened his life and first fired upon him and Burgess, Burgess states that the first intention of Clinard and himself was to arrest the other two parties and bring them to town, but when they approached near Smith and Morgan, both fired their pistols at them, when Clinard instantly shot Smith, and Morgan threw hiB pistol down and ran. This seems to corroborate the statement of several persons who heard the firing, and thought they could distinguish the reports of the pistols from the gun. Superstition, it seems, ia at the bottom of the whole affair. Daring last summer Clinard and Burgess were chopping wood for Mr. Fletcher, a short distance from Adams's Station. Smith also applied for employment and received it; he was a stranger and his mysterious conduce caused others to regard him with suspicion; he had no particular home, and never gave any account of himself He was a ventriloquist, and professed to tell fortunes and possess supernatural powers. He had impressed the idea upon the more superstitious minds that he had the power to enchant or "spell" any person he chose. Clinard and BurgeBsnad become impressed with the opinion that Smith had exercised this power upon them. They could see old gray horses and hobgoblins in their room every night From this a difficulty sprang up between Smith and the other parties, which came near resulting in blows. Smith left the premises, swearing that he would kill CHnaid before he left the neighborhood, and Bince that time he has been prowling through the country with Morgan. It was these two mea who visited onr city last week and proposed to disguise themselves and run Andrew Hardin and others off. The family connection of Burgess and Clinard both are good.

As the election approaches, it becomes more and more painful to contemplate tbe peace which the radical party proposes to give the South, in the event of Gen. Grant's success. The only peace that party can by possibility give will be the peace of despotism the peace of death. When the Sonth finds herself consigned to the tender mercies of the radical party for four years longer, Bhe must be straightway strongly manacled. Should Logan and Washburn and tbe men whom they represent, be permitted to govern the country, through the election of Grant to the Presidency, then will the social and political equalization of the two races be completed. In maBy parts of the South the negro element will speedily become supreme. Negro judges and juries will have in their keeping the rights of all the whites. Negro legislators will regulate the tenure by which white men hold their property, and will assess, levy, and disburse the taxes of which they themselves will pay so little. In parts of the South blacks and whites will share in common the schools, the hotels, the theaters, and all public conveyances, as well as participate in the government We will say nothing here of the incapacity of the negro to govern, of his improvidence, of his indisposition to work, of his physical organization as compared with that of the white man, or of his moral or intellectual inferiority to the latter. We simply state here, what every one knows to be the solemn truth, that the people of the South could not be made to Bubmit, as a finality, to such a condition of things as we have described, except by the severest coercion. No people on this continent, not even excepting the people of New Eaglaud, would accept, without the compulsory persuasion of the bayonet, such a fate as Congress wickedly, lawlessly, and recklessly proposes to inflict upon the South. It is as criminal as it is childish to speak of the repugnance of the white man to associate on equal terms with the blacks as a prejudice which ought to be corrected with a strong hand. If it be prejudice, it is as strongly felt at the North as in the South, and is a prejudice that statesmen are bound to consider. Not five men out of a hundred anywhere north of Maryland would be willing, if they went to the South, to send their daughters to schools, half filled with negroes, to seaL their wives in a theater in the midst of negroes, or to share their state-rooms with negroes. No community between New York and the Mississippi would consent for a moment to be governed by black men. Yet the radical party is preparing to inflict npon a broken and helpless people this ignominious and ruinous punishment It will not wait to see whether what it affects to call an unfounded prejudice cannot be eradicated by a little time and conciliation, but is prepared to inaugurate measures which will at once destroy all present chance of a revival of the prosperity of the South. To the world the spectacle presented by this country must seem like a hideous mockery. Millions of men, among whom dwell scarcely any black men, but who have lately voted ogainst negro suffrage in tbe North, are deliberately striving to consign millions of white men in the South to the domination of ignorant and uncouth black men. Aad this political outrage, as monstrous as any ever inflicted by Russia or Poland, is to be hypocritically perpetrated in the aa cred names of justice and religion. If the radical party is suffered to carry out its infamous purposes, then are our darkest days yet to come, and the people of this country, looking a few years hence upon their work, will cease to wonder at the folly and madness which have brought destruction npon the republics of other lands, and in other time3. They will tmve amnio food for reflection as they recall their own errors, and full cause for una vailing regrets. Wonderful Story, if True. A wonderful story is in circulation in this town this morning aboutamanatChrisfield has been stricken down for blasphemy. The story runs thus: The man (we can't learn the name) on Sunday lost started oil" very early to go fishing. His wife persuaded him not to go, insisting he would be violating the laws of God by so doing. The man remarked that he could go and "catch a mess of fish before Jesus Christ was awake," and proceeded to the Annamessix river. On arriving at the shore he sank down in the sand np to his neck, where he still remains, notwithstanding every effort to extricate him by digging away the sand. This has been done, and his boots cut to free his feet, but he still remains there as inextricable ns ever. Wilson, our telegraph agent at Clayton, sent a telegram last night to learn the facts in the case, and the operator at Chrisfield replied that the were as stated above. The greatest excitement is reported to prevail there. We give the item ub furnished us by the railroad employes here, without vouching for it in any way. It beats the ghost story. Smyrna Times.

Democratic State Committee Rooms, 903 Arch Street, Pbila Delphi a. To tbe Democracy of Pennsylvania. The sturdy Democracy of Maine have covered themselves with glory. In the very citadel of radicalism they have demonstrated that you are upon the eve of a magnificent victory. The two parties were last arrayed at the polis upon national issues in 1866. Maine then polled a vote nearV equal to her vote of 1864, whilst polled her largest vote. In 18C6 radicalism received in Maine 69,637 votes. In 1S68 it receives, as they themselves estimate, 75,002 votes. This i increase of 8 per cent upon the vote of 1866. lu 1S66 Democracy there received votes, and in 1868 it receives 5,725 This is an increase of 30 per cent upon the vote of 186C. In 1866 radicalism received in Pennsylvania 307,274 votes, and the Democracy received 290,096 votes. Apply the test of Maine to this vote, and radicalism will receive in Pennsylvania an increase of 8 per cent, or 24,581 votes, making a total of 334,855 votes, and Democracy will receive an increase of 30 per cent, or 87,028 votes, making a total of 377,124 Democratic votes, showing that we will have a clear Democratic majority of 15,269 votes. Whilst the totals shown by this estimate are too large for the vote that we will cast in October, no man who knows the condition of public Bentiment in Pennsylvania will assert that the relative proportion will be lessened. Maine voted for John C. Fremont, yet James Bachanan was elected President, and Pennsylvania led the colum of States that made him the Chief Executive of the nation. The hope of the republic is in the Democracy of the Keystone. 0 As in 1856, the responsibility of determining the contest now rests with you. Maine has proven that you can again bring triumph to the principles you love. Let ns arouse to renewed energy and more determined effort By order of the Democratic State Committee. WILLIAM A. WALLACE, Chairman. Governor Dramlette. A Misconception oa the Part of a Radical Editor; From tbe Frankfort Yeomao, "In the last issue of this paper we repeated the statement formerly made, that Governor Bramlette was the 'reputed head and leader' of a secret political organization in this State. This statement was made upon information that we considered reliable. "We are informed that, in a speech delivered before the Seymour and Blair Club of this city, on Saturday night last, Col. James T. Bramlette, a son of ex-Governor Bramlette, denied the statement as untrue, accompanying the denial with certain offensive epithets which we do not deem it necessary to place before onr readers. Whether the charge is true, or whether it is not true, depends, as do all facts, npon the proof to be produced. The source and nature of the information upon which we based the assertion is contained in the following statement made to us: STATEMENT. 'The fact that ex-Governor Bramlette is the head and leader of a secret political organization in this State and that CoL Jaa. T. Bramlette is a member of the same, was etated to me by CoL Jas. T. Bramlette, in person, on the cars between Frankfort and Louisville, on the 4th day of September, 1868. A. G. Franhfort Commonwealth. We transfer the above to' our columns to correct an error of stUement In the speech which CoL Bramlette made, instead of denying that his father was a member of a secret political organization, he expressly stated that both Gov. Bramlette and himself were members of an or- ganization which corresponded to the rand Army of the Republic, and was composed largely of ex-Federal soldiers. He denied that it a waa the Kuklux, or had for its objects any of the aims imputed to that organization. The charge which evoked the offensive epithets to which the editor of the Commonwealth incidentally alludes was the assertion made in that paper that Gov. Bramlette was the leader of a "murdering, law-breaking" organization, together with other mention of his name, of which CoL Bramlette deemed it his duty to take notice. In a matter of so strictly of a personal nature we should not have interposed except for the error into which our cotemporary has fallen and his apparent misconception of the point at issue. Grant's Peace. One Day's Doings ofKesro Soldiers. The Goldsboro (N. RougV'S'otes gives the following among the incidents of one day in that town No wonder North Carolina strains every nerve for Seymour and Blair. Here are some specimens of Grant's peace: A gang of drunken soldiers broke up the "quire meeting" at the Presbyterian church on last Friday evening. Negro soldiers spent their Sabbath, yesterday, in fighting and cursing. One soldier bad hiB head cut with a razor; others had their faces bruised up with clubs, fist, and fence-palings. A gentleman who is telegraph operator in a not distant wwl from Goldaboro, and who happened to be here on a visit, was attacked in the streets by five negro soldiers a. few days ago, who demanded an apology of him for some remarks tbe gentleman had made while in company of some friends, which the soldiers no doubt had overheard. Several disorderly negro soldiers were shot bt the soldier patrol, in the public streets on yesterday, while attempting to cscnpe the guard. A "sable warrior" was seen flogging a little white boy in town on Saturday last Did that boy have a mother? At the camp, an officer struck a negro soldier with a saber, on yesterday, inflicting a severe wound about his head. Cause disobedience. On yesterday evening, at the garrison, an officer Bhot and killed one negro soldier and wounded another for disobedience and abuse given him by the soldiers. Last Friday night some of our citizens were grossly insulted and abused by some drunken soldiers, one cf the latter being start-naked. In a fit of drunkenness he had stripped himself of all his clothe. On Wednesday last there was a riot in Milton, occasioned by the enforcement of a court order, requiring work on the roads. The mob threatened to tear down the Mayor's office and sack the town. The law was executed, however. The rioters were negroes, encouraged by three white scalawags, and led on by one Charles Walker, who had the day before been qualified as a magistrate, under appointment by Holden. Let ns have peace.

How can I describe the women, the gambling saloons, the manners and customs of their frequenters, among whom I recognize many American ladies? The toilets are hideous women positively devilish I wonder, as I look at them, if they are really flesh and blood, and have souls; orif, after all, Mahomet was notpartlyright. Women of seventy years, or thereabouts, paint fearfully and adorn themselves with flowers, laces, jewels, false hair, beads, and gewgaws enough to satisfy the taste of aa Indian squaw. The young girls deform themselves purposely. They wear large humps on their backs, and on these bunches were bows of ribbon three-quarters of a yard wide so that it looks as if a monster bird had perched upon their backs. The heels of their boots are pointed, high, and exactly in the middle of tbe foot, and their gate is something startling. The young ladies, of course, lean forward, inclining their backs from the waist upward, at an angle approaching forty-five degrees, causing the bump or bench before mentioned to protrude still more monstrously--even to deformity; and they necessarily walk as if treading on eggs, in such constant dread are they of a fall. This is the mode in vogue, and it is supposed to be a revival of the ancient classic Grecian bend!" ostly Reconstruction. dfcJO. dispatch to the Louisville Journal. WAsnixcToy, Sept. 20.

This is an indica tion of the times, and we must here remark that the general resumption of the steamboat business the large and regular packets is in operation somewhat too soon. It would be better for all parties, crews and even owners, to wait a while longer. The crops, either Northern or Southern, are not ready to be moved, and the boats would not have sufficient business to pay expenses by having only light trips down stream, and as in the case of the Louisiana, nothing coming back. Ia some cases there is "luck in lie, sure," The splendid double-decked steamer America is the regular afternoon packet in the Mail-line for Cincinnati to-day. Among the boats advertised to leave this port during the present week is the P. W. Stader, for New Orleans. She is up for Wednesday at 5 o'clock. The Palestine is the regular Henderson packet to-day. She leaves from the Portland wharf at the regular time. We return thanks to Squire Beck for favors. The fleet little 6teamer J. L. Graham, is the regular packet for Madison to-day. She leaves the city wharf at 1 o'clock. Towboat Walker Morris was buisy all day yesterday taking coal through tbe canal for the Dick Fulton to take South. The Anna will be down to-morrow for St. Louis. Steamer Bermuda, Capt. Dickinson, is advertised for Memphis and White river Tuesday. The gay little steamer Falls City will leave for Green river on Wednesday from the city wharf. The following well-known gentlemen are to represent New Orleans at the general convention of steamboatmen to be held in this city on Wednesday, the 23d inst: Capts. John W. Tobin, A. C. God-din, John Smoker, Geo. H. Kirk, and Mr. John A. Stevenson. The Belle Lee, who was reported to be aground at Island No. 34, passed Memphis Friday night with a splendid trip. The Dick Fulton descended the falls lost evening preparatory to leaving for Memphis. cosifiled from our exchanges. Latest from the Steamboat War. The St Louis Democrat of the 18th contains the following: The irrepressible conflict of the St. Louis and upper Mississippi steamboat lines is a subject of rapidly-increasing interest Our readers are requested to observe tbe advertisement of the "Keokuk Mail Line for St Paul," and the announcement of a reduction in passage rates to Keokuk and way points, by tbe White Collar line. Captain J. S. McCune and Captain William S. Davidson stand arrayed against each other as tbe chief commanders in the stubborn contest, and are rapidly bringing their forces to the front. There is to be no neutral territory btween St Louis and St Paul, and gallantly will the fight go on under the leadership of two of the profoundest professors of the art of steamboat competition. The Dubuque Ecrald says: The Ida Fulton lost her wheel six miles this side of Bellevue, and was towed up by the Gault for repairs. Tbe accident was caused by the breaking of the Bhaft The Tiber was run into by the Milwaukee and had one of her barges of grain sunk in Coon Slough. The Milwaukee and Dnbuque left here together Saturday, for a race to St Paul, and met the Tiber coming down loaded, when the collision occurred. From the Vicksbnrg Herald of a late date we take the following: There is to be a lively opposition for the business between Vicksburg and New Orleans the ensuing season. The Bart Able is to be one of the contestants, and be entered against the Robert E. Lee, leaving New Orleans on the day precediog the departure of the Lee. The Governor Allen nill be pitted against the Bart Able. Captain W. C. Hardwick has sold his one-tbird interest in the Myrtle to Captain J. O. Stevens, of the Newsboy, for $3,500. Terms private.
