Yesterday the lias tern excursionists
Tfcro tho guests o? tho California Steam

Thc stars and stripes floated graceful
ly . om both bow a id stern o? the
sicamor, while a half dozen standards of
different devices wcro planted i o term edi
ntcly on tho upper dook, imparting to i.
a tasteful and gaudy appearance.
TUE START.
As thc gallant vessel shot out in the
stream, the Second Artillery bund com?
posed ot twenty pieces, struck up a
national air, tho bells along the wharf
were rung, nud the numerous tugs and
other steam crafts plying iu the bay,
saluted her by a wild scream iVom thoir
whistles.
A crowd of several hundred propio
on thc dock, waved their handkorchi?'.s,
shouted adieus, and kept gazing after
tho st cauter until she had got be?
yond thc linc of thoir vision.
THE DAY
Was bright and beautiful, with a i.'csh,
but by no moans violout breeze, blowing
in flout thc Golden Gato, a distant viow
of which could bc had as tho steamer
headed toward Alcatraces, tho only

ALEA'IRACrS.
The steamer was but a few milos in
making the run to Alctvnse Island,
where she remained but V a minute
or two, so short a lime that noue of thc
excursionists went ashore. Thc com?
mander of the Post carno on board and
extended an invitation to tho excursion?
ists to visit tho Tslaud and viow tho rov
tilications, which was courteously de?
clined, as the time of the Chrysopolis
was limited, on account of hor having
to take on board a cargo and resumo her
place on thc Sacramento Hue at 4 p.m.
A SALUTE
of three guns, was fired on thc island,
as tho steamer rounded into thc stream,
and headed out toward thc Golden Gate.
The tide being full was n favorable cir?
cumstance to those unused to "going
down to thc son in ships," as it prevent?
ed the swoll which would hive been
certain to have knocked more than ouc
of tho company "off his pins." Aa it wa?,
in passing out into the ocean a few of
thc ladies found it convenient to go be?
low, where the motion of tho boat is
loss sensible, and tho liability to nausea
very slight.

An exeellent view was obtained by

read tho following lotter from Gen.

.. . COLUMBIA, Oof 8.
To Gen. M. C. Ender :
My DEAU Q EN EU AL-Your communi?
cation, asking me to give you an account
of what transpired at the interview I
had with Qov. Soott, in 1803, reached
mc on my rc'urn homo day before yes?
tonlay, ?nd in accordance willi your re
quest, I beg to m..ke tho following stat
mont : A few days after tho murdor of j
Randolph, I wes requested by Gov.
Scott, through a friend, to call on him,
which I did on tho following day. As
no ono but Gov. Scott and myself wero
present ot tMs interview, I shall not re*
peat what was then scfl& and will rofer
only to what passed at a subsequent
meeting. By request I called again on
Gov. Scott at h is house on the night of I
Tuesday, October 2 < th, accompanied by '
two friends. In tho conversation that
ensuod, I told Gov. Scott that as Grant's
olection was now rendered nearly cer?
tain, tho vee of this State would not
effect the gen oral result, but that our
people would settle down much more
quietly if tho voto of thc State should
bo cast in favor of tho Democratic can?
didato, and that I regatded it of great
conscquonco in tho interest of peace
that suoh should be tho oose. To this
Gov. Scott agreed, and after farther
conversation he made the following
pledges : First. That he would usc his
influence to make the State go Domo?
eratic. Second. That he would endeavor
to induce a sufficient number of thc
colored members of the Legislature to |
resign, so that the whites might secure
a strong representation in both houses.
Third. That ho would appoint to oflico,
whenever ho could-do so, such menas
wcro recommended by tho Democratic
party. And fourth. That ho would
ibsuo a proclamation commending the
notion of tho cxeoutive .committee, and
calling on hts party to exercise tho
samo spirit of conciliation and for?
bearance ns tho Democratic party had
boon urged'to do in tho address of their
exocutive committee. This proclamation
was written, (ns I was subsequently
informed,) by ono of tho gentlemen
who was present at tho intorviow ; was
signed by Governor Scott, and publishod
on tho 27th of October.
As Governor Scott has broken faith
with me, I no longer regard tho com?
munication ho made ns confidential.
You are, therefore, nt liberty to uso this
letter rs you may p'ease.
I ara very truly yours,
WADE HAMPTON.

LIVERPOOL, fiept. 80,1870.
TA? Situation.-Thc A?*H*a in priced
doting the past week, U mainly attribu- !
?ble to a largo jmport fron Havre, a
heavy decline in the American markets,,
sales of future shipments ?'rom Ameri?
can; porta fit prions relatively lower thau j
jrcre current for par?ela bo. the spot,
anda lessoned trade demand consequent
on the liberal purchases for the . week?
ending th? loth iustant. Added to
til eso cause?, there seemed to have been
a general pause ta nearly ever j depart?.
mont of business awaiting-tho result of
tho conference between M. Jules Favre
and Count Bismarek, upon the solution
of which, it is felt, depends the Ques?
tion of au early peace or an indefinite
prolongation, of the yt ar bo twee o Franco
and Germany. .
From Havre we have during the past
week received about , 17,000 bales, the
larger proportion of which is American.
The recent activo demand for shipment
hero seems to have oheoked the dooline
in that market, and prices having in the
meanwhile declined We about Id per lb,
there is no longer any margin to induce
shipments from that market to this.
However, it is not perhaps so much n
question ot margin as political considera?
tions that will induce or. chock further
shipments. At present ?ailroad com
muoioation betweon Havre and the'
cotton consuming districts of France,
Switzerland; and Northern It ?Iv is entire*
ly cut off, and thero appears to be some
apprehension lest tho wave of war may
roll even against the very gates of that
city ; it is, therefore, not improbablo that
a largo proportion of tho stock yot re?
maining in li avro may bo transferred to .
this market, nud should this be the case
Whilst it would not incrcaso tho supply
available for the wants of Europa, it
would keop np tho stock, and tho pres?
sure to effect sales tn this market, and
exort thereby a more directly depress?
lug influence upon prices than it other?
wise would, wc may, of course, expcot,
as pointed out in our circular of 0th
instant, thatgour receipts from Havre
will, iu the long run, be nearly offset by
' increased exports f. ora this to other
Continental ports, but a gradual itn
> provemont iu our ' export demand wil^
not, in its influence upon p, 'ces, offset
a largo import and pressure to effect
sales.
In our last report we referred to tho
probability of nu carly break-do wu of
pri?es in tho American markets, it bas,
however, oome sooner, and tho deoline
hits been heavier than we anticipated.
Thon middling Uplands were quoted in
! New York at lO?o, and now at 18Bc.
I This deolino has brought prices there
j oven below thc parity of th oso current
here. ' Thc immediate effect of this has
been to moke nearly every holder of
American Cotton, however confident of
highor prices later on, a free seller. (Jp to
this timo, so far as wc can learn, but few
orders have gone out from this couchy
to America for purchases, bul, ord ina vi ly
? at this season of tho year these orders
increase, and the lower scale of prices
now current there will no doubt tend to
stimulate this increase. Thc question
is, will any ordors, that are likely to go
out from hero in these wur time*, when
moro or less distrust prevails in overy
department of business, bc suffieicut to
sustain prices there in tho absence of a
continental demand. Without attempt?
ing to answer this question, we may
stato that -os a general rule, wo may
expect priocs hero to favor buyers so
long ns values in tho American markets
I aro relatively lower thau h oro.
Tho receipts nt tho American ports
! for thc four days ending 80th ult., aro
reported ut 16,000 bales, against -19,000
halos for thc week ending thc 2 Uh Sep?
tember last year. This fulling oil',
however, seems to excito no surprise,
being generally attributed to tho late?
ness of the crop, and to ?ho low prices
now ourrent in the American markets,
as eomparcd witn last year. At present,
so far as wo can loam, tho provailing
impression on this s'-e seems to bc that
with a modorntoly late and favorable
flicking season, tho crop of this year is
ikely to be fully as largo, and perhaps
one or two hundred thousand bales
larger than last year. i
Tho visible supply we now estimate
as per our tablo aoovo, at 70,S?)4 bales
in excess of last year, and 140,015 b.des
less than tho yoar beforo at samo da'o,
whereas the price of middling Orleans
is now Old against 12Jd Inst year and
101 d the yoar before at same date.
Our homo trado ave believed to hold
at present a very small stock, and iu
evidonoo of this, for sovorul weeks past
spinners have required tho delivoiy of
p a ech ou tho same day that purchases
wore rondo. Wo have no means of ar?
riving at tho oxaot stock of cotton hold
by them, but J rom tho most reliable in?
formation at our command we would
est?malo it ot 80.000 bales, against 51,
000 at thU limo Inst year.
At Manohcstor, during thc past weok,
a very moderate buisness appears to have
boen done. Producers of both cloth and
yarns are, as a mle, yot under oontraots
for some weoks ahead, and consequently
are not pressing sellers, whilst buyers
appoar to be awaiting further develop?
ment in roforonoe to continental affair*
before giving out largo orders.
SIGNS f \ THE v.xs v.
For many years tho Maine election
has been lookod upon as a sort of poli?
tical bare-motor. Occurring early in tho
fall, its results have generally indicated
the ohanges in public sontimont whioh
have boon going oa during tho previous
eight months of tho year. Tho suddon
revolution in its vote in 1850 foreshad?
owed the conquest of tho Northern
States by radicalism. Maine has stead?
ily adhorod to the radlonl party until
this year. It hos always beeu good for
from 20,000 to 25,000 vadioal mnjoiity.

W o do not propere tb d i seuss or' state
at length the reasons which led to this
determination.
Efforts havo boon made to- distroot
and divide the white people of the conn*

but few who do not now seo and acknow?
ledge the necessity which exists for a
fall and freeaooeptanee of aoeomplishod

orous audfejs^oorted aotiou willoh are
always neoeWiry to success. Without
propor organisation, but little can bo
accomplished, especially whoro success
is to bo attained only when united
strength is brought to bear.
With proper organization, and with
earnest and co rabin od offert, th ore is
scarcely room to doubt that deliverance
would have come to as.. - Front - mi sides
tho information hos roaohed us that the
light of truth has at length found iff way
to tho mind of a considerable portion of
the oolored pooplo, and that they were
giving unmistakable signs of u purposo
to unite with tho honest whito men of |
tho county io thc work of Reform
We feel that wo have discharged our
duty to tho oountry, honestly and1 ia the
foar of God, and that tho responsibility
rests not with us, bo tho results what
.dicy may.
When two ycarsnioro shall havo rolled
around-two moro years of degradation
and misrule-it may bo that tho mass
of our peoplo will have sufficiently real?
ized tho ohanges which have taken placo
in tho relationship of tho two races, to
be prepared to movo together for tho
oommon weal. This, of course, refers
only to our local afiairs.
That good must result to thc Stato
?Voru thc movement asa whole, wo have
never cntov'.r.iuod a djubt.
Tho declaration of tho Press Resolu?
tions wc regard the wisest step whioh
has been taken iu this 8.ale binco thc
war. It is tho first practical .step which
has been taken to Hf* our noble old com?
monwealth from tho dust and ashes in?
to whioh sho had fallen, and to restore
to her a tolerable government. The
fruits of this step will bo econ mainly
iu thc future. It, boa already at least
purlially broken down tho political wall
of partition betvvecu thc whito and col?
ored men of tho Stato, and prepared tho
way for thc cotniug of a better state of]
things.
And then, tho peoplo have been
aroused to tho truth of tho shocking
oorruptious which havo stalked abroad
in their councils of State. Tho veil
has boon stripped off, and tho hide.ous
doformity of these things hus been ex?
posed to tho oyo of tho world. This
must nud will result, at least, iu mc;
surablo reform.
The pcxt Legislature, too, will om?
bruce at loast a considerable conservative
minority-men of houcty and of abili?
ty, whoso voico and influenco will work
together ia fm'.Iterance ol' tho samo
good purposo. And thus again will
good bnvo boen accomplished.
This muoh wo regard os beyond
doubt. But wc havo candidates in tho
Odd, who represent thc intogrity and
intelligence of tho Stale, and in this
connexion thoro is a solemn and weighty
responsibility resting upon our pooplo.
Lot them rally to the polls and deposit
