Elsewhere in our issue <>f to-day, will be found
an account of a grand and fearful riot in Now
York. Tho mob, in their rcristancc to Abraham
Li. coin's Conscription carried all before them ;
1 tko the btasts in li evolution. " they broke, tore
ii peicec, and stamped the residue with their feet."
This is the most gratifying and promising now6

part, of Lincolnddtn. That G*od may hurry on
their confusion is eur prayer.
(> tr Government and Repudiation.
We believe the world bas never seen so religions
un anny us I hat of in<* Confederare States since
the days of Charles the Xii, whu always had
prayers read at thc heed of bis army night and
tavrhing. Wo do not. except the Puritan Army
of Oilver Cromwell, tur wo havo long thought,
as oid Noll himself, upon a meuior.ihlo occasion,'
said to Col. Harrison, " thv were often upon their
knees seeking not God but a cork-screw."
Ws hold too the ?ame high opinion of tho civil'
(icpnrlipent of the Confederate Government. TTo
havo believed tLut they wero a just, upright,
God-fearing set of men : wo still Ihiuk so, and
will continue to think so untiLthij cherished
opinion is turn from us by an open act of dero
liclitin from the pnth of honor on the part of
those whom we have trusted.
But what mean these i vii reports that are com
ing up to us, f;vt from Charleston ?nd now from
Richmond, of au intention on the part of Govern
ment to repudiate the. public debt '! This r?pudia
tion, siyi the correspondent of tho Mercury, has,
it is said, thu sanction ?if tho lion. lt. J?. T. Hun
ter. We do not believe this of Mr. Hunter, and
we are sure that tue Secretary of tho Treasury,
Mr. Mcmminger, will never lend his in?iitnce Jo
ruell a nefarious scheme. Wo have the utmost,
confidence in Mr. Memmingcr as a mun of honor
and integrity, and wo ara sure he will nuver sauo
lion a scheute of downright fraud.
Wc are pained however, and alarmed, wo eon
fess, that such charges can bo brought an.i-dis
ccssed publicly in our news paper's. Tho mero
circulation of Euch rumors by the Press is calcu
lated tit do serious injury to tho currency of the
cou.itry. l'ubiic credit, like femnlo virtue, must
not only he. pure, but abovo suspicion. We know
that these reports arc already begetting distrust
and suspicion iu the public mind, und workin"
injury t-i tho financial interest of tho country.
We think therefore that thc inforestof the country
dosands of those in authority at once to set at
rest thc ? ublic mind on this subject
Wc aro disposed to duerfc?it lida report not only
froni the known iutegrity of our public servants,
hut because tho thing is so manifestly impolitic.
It requires no profound* skill iu finance to judge
of a matter of tt>ia sort ; it reiolves- itself into a
tjunsiLu of fact-and about ibis we h.HVe bct'er
apportnnitles ol'judging than the most skillful
financier immured in his office in Richmond. The
[|i;estion is simply this-will tho reduction o'f tho
nterest on the 8 and 7 per cunt bond? destroy
he conCdcnco of the people in tho currency of
ho country? We answer without hesitation that I J
t will. And no pecuniary gain can at all Com- ! C
t?nsate for such an inju y. This would surely
c the most short sigbtc? of all mensures. If tho
lovornmont si tid ever rosulvo Ut destroy it's

Mr.. EDITC-H,-Dear Sir,-In theso times of
speculation, and manta for mouoy making, it is
like the Osis in ihc desert to the weary traveller,
to record act? of liberality, for the relief of the
families of soldiers who are battling for our rights,
and nobly dufeudiog our homes and firesides from
the ruthless invader.' Such an act of liberality
tho Soldiers'Board of Relief forthis District, takes
groat plonsure in acknowledging from Mr. JAMBS
Joans eriiKG-3, to tho amount of - Two Thousand
, (2.000) Dollars this day sent to them, to bo used
.for the rtlief of Soldiers' Families.
Mr. GTIKGO i* now-in the servir? of his country,
.many, by'usihg his w'otny 'tn kirs a ?ntbilifu/e to
screen himself from danger, nobly gives it to the
ptor and continuos at his post'.
How many in ridgefield lire willing to follow thc
oxample thus sot, aud send us donations at our
next mooting, (or sooner if thoy choose) the first
Monday in October next ? Many, we'ani satisfied'
oouM givo no m rt li ?ny, if not as much as Mr. U-KKUO
has dono. Wo hope the example will bo followed.
The sum in tho aggregate, R?ctns largo, but when
divided between some I,SOO persons, dwindles to
an insignificant amount.

He is considered a very dangerous mau where

graduated at West Point?t the head-of hts

sequently lie v.?ts assigned to lbw duty ol ex
perimenting upon thc power bf pa.j etiles
upon earth, wood and earthworks, and spent
several year? in this duty, acquiring in that
tittie more experience and knowledge onjthis
subject than any man in this country. The
more perfectly to rt cord the results of his
experiments he took photographs (ii the ef
fect of every shot fired. At Fort Pulaski he,
for the first time, brought, his skill to fhe test

Convention of Nurserymen. -.
A prominent Nurseryman and Fruit-Grower
of a neighboring State, writes us as follows :
JJ. REU?IOX?, E?q.,-Dear Sir-Would it
not bs wail for the Nurserymen of the South
lo meet together some time during the pres
ent summer, for consultation on matters per
taining lo their business? It seems to mc
very desiranV that, at lea9t, there should be'
concert of action in regard Ut price* adapted
to tiic times. It is preposterous to sell the
product* of the Nursery at the prices which
ruled previous to the war, while everything
else is no enormously high. A regular sched
ule of price's should be established and ad
hered to by all engaged in selling trees, vines,
afjrubs, Ac. Other matters of interest to the
profession, a.id to Southern promoiogy, might
very properly eugage the attention of an as
semblage of Southern "Nurserymen, and I
shonM bc pleased to see the proposition car
ried into effoct.
The object of this note is to suggest to you
the propriety of calline* attention to the sub
ject in the columns of thc next issue of the
,l Cultivator^ shnu'd it meet ymir approba
tion. Lot Ur* meeting, or convention, be
held, pay nt At'nnta or Augusta, some time in
thc month of August. If you r.gree with me,
name the time and place iu the next number
of the Cultivator.
Fully agreeing with the writer of the above,
in the views he haa expr ssed, we take the
liberty of appointing Adania as the place, and
Wedn?xday the 19th of Angrusl, as the time
of holding tho Convention ; ind we hope the
importance! of the subject win secure a full
attendance.-Ed. So. CULT.
