being convincedthat theincorportion of the Brown

tion of the State would most surely embarrass, if not
annihilate all enterprise, all hope of recuperation;
wonld discourage all immigration, diminish in?

tion of such plans ss they may deem wisest and
heat for nniting and consolidating tho conserva
tire influence of the State; to effectively prevent
the success of tho ultra Republican or Radical
rule in onr State organization. Tho Congress of
the United States has cut us eft" from all participa?
tion in national politics. Nothing is left us
but the caie of oor Siate institutions. This
move has nothing to do with national politics or
with hindering or obstructing any law of Con

the incorporation of those Radical principles and
measures into our State organization, which would
place t?e control of tho government in the hands
of the ignorant, vicious, and most unprincipled
among us, which would certainly result in the
destruciion of enterprise and the vitality of
the State. All aid ana encouragement, therefore,
which this movemort could give tho friends of

Gen. Pope's Jury Order.
AUGUSTA. September 23.-:Judge Reese, of the
Superior Court, writes to General Pope that he
cannot carry out the recent jnry orders, the same
being violations of the law of Georgia, and of the
State and Federal Constitutions. Judge Reese
claims that registration is entirely optional, and
not compulsory;'and because a man, v..o may be
otherwise' a loyal citizen, does net register, it is
no reason why be should be excluded from serving
on the jory.
Gen.Pope replies that the Military Bill gives
him the-fight to set asid* say law of the State
which comes in conflict with the Military Bill. Or
deis 53 and ">"> were issued by virtue of powers
vested in him by Congress; he considers the jnry
order necessary to the execution of the Recon?
struction Acts, which became laws in ihe manner
provided br the COnstitition.
Aa the question of iis unconstitutionality has
been presented to the Supreme Court, and that
tribunal had decided that :t had no jurisdiction,
the farther consideration vi that question by
subordinate military or judicis officers, is scarcely
General Pope concludes by requiring Judge
Reese to carry ont his orders.
Judge Reese, iu a secoud lotter, goes over simi?
lar ground, arriving at che conclusion that
he cannot conform to Pope's orders, but
shall continuo the dut ies of his office as hereto?
fore, until prohibited. Pope then requested Rcose
to resign, which he refus* d to do, but considors
bis fetter as a positive prohibition agtinst the
furthti ewroise of judicial power.

J THE CASK OF JE PP OEF..
Tv the Editor t.r the Charleston Daily AT?*?:
? My attention ha i been directed to a letter
f columns of the Anti-Slacery Slan'tard, from
leis E. W. HARPES to Colonel HINTON, date'
Jmington, X. C. July 26th, 1867, and also a
munication in the same paper ovor the sigi
I of "Watchman." Both of these commnnici
' contain statements iu reference to J??ff Get
under sentence of death for the murder of D
GANDY, SO utterly false and at variance with a
circumstaucas and facts of the case, that I de
ray duty, acquainted as I am with the caso
its inception u> it* present position, to pu
public in possossion of all the facts conn
This horrible murder was ooinuiitted ou th
of May, 18C5, in Marion District, S. C., on
plantation of the late J. S.-GIBSON. At the
M"r. GANDV was murdered he waB the oversea
the plantation, and had beon tor the twelve
ceding years, i have beon physician for the \
tation for the last nine years. I saw Mr. 6'
Homo eight or ten days before he was killed,
ho told me that he expected constantly to be s
that two of the negro men on the place hat
formed him confidentially that there were two
pieious looking whit 3 * men: and ono nc
strangers, well armed, lurking about tho pla
Hon, inquiring where they could meet Mr. G AI
and threatening to kill any one who should
Mr. G.INDY anything about them. Several ger
men have informed me that Mr. GANDY told tl
the same thing, and their certificates can be
tamed rf necessary. At*he name time Mr. GA
informs^ me that some perspns had been shoot
and kilting his hogs, and dragging them from
open field, making a trail so plain that you mi
run on it. When he told me of these bold i
daring thefts, my appr?hendons wpre more tl
over aroused to his danger, and 1 advised him
to follow these trails ' hereafter, if any should
made, aa I was convinced that they were made
decoy him near enc ugh to-the awamptosh
him. He had, fiowevor, taken the same view
the case as myself, and had kept out of shooti
distance of the woods. Thia was the last conv
sation I ever had with him.
In the afternoon of the 8th of May a messent,
came for me to see Mr. GANDY, stating that he h
been shot and killed on the plantation. I ><
from home, and did not retani until late at nigi
Hearing that several gentlemen had gone don
and that Mr. GANDY was oertsinlyj^eajd^ ?J*id"i
fro to the plantation until the next morning. Wh
I reached the house a heart-rendpg spectacle pi
aented itself. There lay the corpse, with a wou:
in the side of the neck, and another through 1
head, and hhs blood and brains dripping an f
floor, and his four or five little orphan cliildr
(their mother having died a few years befor
Balking around their father's lifeless body, th?
little cheeks scalded with tears of grief.
At this time an inquest was jeld, but no testim
ly identifying the murderers could be obtaine
Hack Gibson (freedman) was examined before tl
nquest, and he was the only witness whose tea tim
ly bad any bealing on the caa?. He s tuted.that M
SANDY had ridden from his noone to where a nun
HT of the negroes were ploughing, and, after si
in tr on his horse among them for ,i short time-, 1
?de off in the. direction of a shelter around ti
lead ot a branch, and he supposed that he woul
?ross the railroad, which dividod the plantatioi
o go lo liomc- negroes who were working on tb
ither side. "Soon after he ' he Ard the 'report of

thinking that the horse had thrown Mr. GAND?

[alloped back to thu negroes ho had just left, ant
old them what he had seen. He therefore saw
lothiugmore of the assassine. All this waa dont
n full view of Mr. (JANDY'S houso, and, I was in
innied, was seer by some of tho servants in Utf
It was ascertained at the inquest that Mr. GAN
>Y had no arms about his person when ho was
murdered-all he ownod were found in his house
titer his body was taken to it. His body was
obbed of shoos, socks and coat, a fine gold
yatch, a small amount of specie, and a knife that
ie was known to havo had about him. Here tho
nquest, being unable to gather any more i TI Mr
nation, rendered a verdict in accordance with the
act A before t hem,
Believing that these bad men committed this
murder to rob, and, also, that unless they
yere identified and convicted HO that the ven
reauce of the law might reach them, that it
re?id embolden others to commit liKe il.-eds for
ike purposes, I determined to be vigilant and
nutiouely to inquire of Doth white and black in
??der, if possible, to find some clnp to the affair,
ind I requested Mr. ERVIN BAILEY and others to
lo likewise and repoi their success.
Here the matter rested, ?ind was involved in
mystery unt? about th? first of November, 1866,
it which time Mr. BAILLY came to nie and inform?
ad me that he had got on track of the assaa
Jins-that he had received confidential informa*
;ion to the effect that Hampton (freedman) had
tctually witnessed a part of the affair. Thc fol
owiug-schome was then devised to detect tho
vhole thing : BAILEY was to visit Hampton re?
latedly to gain bis cinfldence, and, whon he
bought he had succeeded, to report to me; this
ie did. It ms then concluded that BAILEY should
.ell Hampton thal his (BAILEY'S) life had been
threatened by a man who had been stealing his
hogs, and to ask Hampton to recommend some
st uinch man, if he knew any, who would not only
prDtect bia rights, but shoot the thief if necessa?
ry. We believed that if Hampton knew who tho
masams weie he would be almost certain to re
jommend ono or more of them. Accordingly, in
?bout two weeks, BATLEY went to see Hampton;
told him of the hog thief; asked his advice, and
the scheme succeeded so far as the result
has proven. Jeff (iee was recommended
by Hampton as a suitable person tor the
work, and at the same time he directed Mr.
Bailey to cali on two other freedmen, one bi ing
about six miles distant and the other tea, to ob?
tain information as to Jeff's whereabout*. Up to
this time, neither Balley or myself, ox an ? one else
to our knowledge, had ever siispeccted Jeff Geo,
though it was known that he had bo2n a runaway
for a number of years; that tor a large part o? the
time he had confined himself to that and the ad?
joining neighborhoods, and that he was a man of
desperately bad character, as I shall afterward
Mr. Bailej, acting upon Hampton's advice, went
immediately to see tbe freedman who lived neajeet
to him, and told him that he was iu search of his
brother's horse Uhf>t hud been stolen a shoit time
before), anti at the 6ame time told him the stery of
his wrongs by the hog thief, and asked his advice
in pretty much tht bame word* as li? bad asked
Hampton's. He, too, recommended Jeff Gee, anet
Sromised to find out where he was living, and let
tr. Bailey know.
Mr. Bailey thon went to see the other freedman,
repeated the same story to him, and expressed a
desire to see .Tefl'Gee, as he had been recommend
ed to him as the right man to protect him. 'i bis
freedman then statod to Mr. Bailey that Jeff find
lived on thc- same placo us himself a part of tho
preceding year, but was accused by his employ? r
of breaking open and robbing his mill house, and
was dischaiged; but remarked to Bailey that if he
wanted any shooting done. Jeff was a" dangerous
man. and would undoubtedly shoot. Upon Bailey's
inquiring his reasons for thia account of Jct), ho
stated that Jeff and two white men, ono ulled
Jack Walker, and thc other Shuinach, had been
about there for five or six mouths prior to Mr.
Gaudy's murder; that they had shot and Killed
steck, and played the mischief generally] that he
saw them t pether dozens uf times un the planta?
tion; ?hut tliey visited bio house repeatedly, and
also other houses on the premises; that they wen?
well armed, dangerous looking men; that lit* was

immediately to 0e? bim. Bailer told hun that h

been recovered). Bailev told him tho'old storv o
his difficulty with tho hoc; thief, and askod hin
to como down to his house and stick A
load of eliot in the? thief if neeo?sarv (this hi
consented to do i, and at the samo moment tole

ton and others had told him how nicely he, Shu

and it hid nover upon found out. The arrav ol
names wa?. to?i strong for .red", and he nuuk
no denial. Bailey then asked him to stale thc
particulars, which ho did in confidence. (Hie
confession will appear ?hen I give Bailey's testi?
mony before the Court.) Bailev then wetit imme?
diately to Hampton and told him of Jeff's con?
fession, and Hampton, for the first time, told
Bailey whar he afterward swore to before the
Ur. John E. Gandy, the brother of Daniel Gan?
dy, was informed of those confessions, and he im?
mediately had Jeff arrested and lodged in Marion
Jail, in Mnreh last. He was tried in April last, be?
fore his Honor Judgo Aldrich. The following ovi
lenco was given on the trial. tMack Gibson's tes?
timony has already been stated.)
Hampton (freedman) stated that he was a rnn
nvay; that on the morning of tho dav on which
Mr. Gandy was murdered, ho went into Murray's
Neck (which is a denselv wooded piece of ground
?early in tue middle ot* the plantation) for the
purpose of trying to get some provisions from the
dough hands, who were working at thia time near
hu edge of the woods. As he was approaching,
:he plough hands he saw three men, all well
trmod with grins and revolvers. Thoy were about
bree or four hundred yards from tho railroad, in
he same thicket or wood*, just a little below
vhere the bauds were ploughing in thc field. As
he woods wore very thick, ho did not see them
mtil ho got within thirtv or forty yards of them.
Vt sight of them ho professed to have been much
righteued, but they beckoned and called to him,
n a low tone of voice, to come up. Ho did so,
ind they then askod him where ho was going; he
old them that ho was a runaway, and waa going
o get some provisions from the plough hands,
lt this time a small man, whom he heard answer
o the name of Shumach, stooped and looked
hrough thc bushes, flaying, aa he did so, that he
rould like to get a pop at that d-d old rascal.
?e (Hampton! then looked and saw Mr. Gandy
itting OJ his horse near the hands, and then
aid- "Mon, you had hetter not shoot Mr. Gandy
1?re." They asked his reason, and he told them
hal if they killed Mr. Gacdv at that place all the
rhite peo j ile would believe that some of the black
icople killed him. After thia he lett .hem and
ralked off in the diroction of tho railroad, but had
lot proceeded far before the three men followed,
nd when (bey reached the corner of the fence
which is near the railroad), Jeff Gee andShu
aach climbed upon tho fence and looked aa if they
rere watching.some one. Hampton then looked
nd saw Mi. Gandy riding around the head of the
iraneh toward thu shelter. This accounted for
heir falling back to tho road. At the disappear
hceof Mr. Gandy behind thc branch, Shuniacb
nd Jeff jumped off tho fence and said that tliev
rould cut him off bolow, and asked Hampton if
ie thought they could do it. He told them that
hey could not; that it was too far, and they would
e found out. Shu mac li again called tu Jeff to
ome on and they would try it, and he and
eff ran off down tho track of the railroad.
VJktv than said to them: "D-n it, don't
r; hoar the old daddy say it ia too far!"
?hey, however, pt_d no attention, and he
nd' Walaer followed on the track for about
n hundred yards and lind stopped, and
rere talking, when they beard a gun fire about
rhcre he supposed Jeff and Shumach were. At
his report, Walker exclaimed, "There, by G-d,
hey have got a pop at him,'r-hnd ran off in the
anio (hrection, saying to Hampton,' Come on."
tut he stated that he turned back and saw them
o more. He had seen Jeff Gee before, ?nd knew
im at tiret eight.
Mr. Ervin Bailey was tlc nett witness. He
tated that Jeff toidhira that, after Mr. Gaudv rode
?" iron", the plough hands, and diaappearod from
lula behind the brauch, that be and Shumach
an down the track of tho railroad to cut him off
diere thoy thought ho would cross the track, and
hat j?st as they roached the place they saw Mr.
(anny coming.: He* (Jeff) then dropped on his
lieus and said t<? Shumach that the hindmost
ian must shoot first. ' Shumach took a rest on hi?
boulder, and arnon Mr. Gandy came aa near as
bey wished, Shumach tired, and at tho report of
he'gun ?Ir. Gandy Calf from his "hora?, and the
loise ran off. I hey thought ho waa killed; but in
moment or two he jumped up and ran offin the
ame direction thal he hud come Jeff also stated
li?t ho saw Mr. Gandy would get away, and, as he
in laster than Shumach, he took ? nearer way
nd headed Mr. Gandy at thc fodder stacks, and
aere shot and wounded his dog, and kept Mr.
iandv until Shumach and Walker came up. Shu
?aeh" shot and killed him immediately after he
anio up. They then robbed bim of a watch, some
louey, his kniie. shoes, bocks and coat, and that
0 (Jeri ) was behind the fodder stacka when Mack
fitaon rode in sight. They then hastened out of
ight into the swamp.
Here cloded the evidence, and the case went lu
ar- jurv. Jeff was defended by three able lawjera,
ppointed by tho Court. He waa found guilty of
mrder, and *entenc?rt to be hung the first Friday
He was inform?e, while thc jury had retired to
lake np their \erdi.'t, that any statement he
ould make would add nothing, and he then openly
onfeased, to moro than a dozen mon, that thc
videnco of Bailey and Hampton was true: and he
Iso has confessed his guilt, since his conviction,
y a minister who bas been visiting him in prison.
The whole proceodiuga of the trial were watched
y an officer of the Freedraen'a Bureau, and, as
ir as I know, he has not only not protested
gainst the verdict of the jurv, but has acquiesced
i its decision.
I have no doutvt that Jcfi wan the leading
nd master spirit ol the gang He had been lurk
ig about thc plantation so long that I do not
oubt he had seeii Mr. Gandy oft eu, yet I believe
Ir. Gandy had never seen either of nia assassina
util a few moments before they murdered him,
nd consequently could have given them no offence
The question then is "What motive had they
jr taking his life ?"
Mr. Gandy had thereputation of having a large
mount of money. Jeff, no doubt, knew this, and
nth his two companions waylaid him until they
illod him, in the belief that" they would reap ii
ich harvest from hi* pockets.
As to Jeff's antecedents, they are extremely bad;
nd although ho haden indnlgent and humane
linster, he spent most of his time in the woods,
?"here wi re nine or ten men shot recently in this
nd the adjoining eominnnities during the six
uonths preceding the close of the war, and cir
umstances have since come to light loading to
he belief that he was concerned in most if not all
if tliein, and certificates to this effect can be fnr
lished if necessary.
He confessed to Bailey that ho shot at hia old
?aster and Mr. Ooddin, and, therefore, na all of
ho crimea were committed within thu theatre of

ir.iwn, colored, who waa a runaway, hud boon

mariel, and sunk in Black Creek. No one believed
nu at the time, yot Toni has never been seen or
leard of sinco. It has been ascertained that Jeff
lee, vYalker and Shumach were hia companions,
md tho last time they were seen together was near
ho place where hu was said to have been killed.
Toney Dargan, colored, waa alao killed, and Bir?
min stances equally strong attach tho crime to the
.ame gang of men. The said Toney seems to have
leen a valuable and trusty man. Ho had complain
;d of some deprcdatious committed on thu planta
ion of the late Chancellor Dargan, and for tliie
illence he was dragged from his own house at
light, tied, taken off and shot ; his body was after
varrls lound and identified.

stockade of soldiers at Florence when Mr. Gandy
was murdered, b'th of May, IS?Z. All the prison?

soldiers which 1 uanoi believe,they lia.l ample
opportunity to join Shermans army, which passed
through Darlington District about tho first of
April, and within twelve miles of thru principal
rendezvous, and sonic cavalrv came within two
milos ol it, ?md there were no Confederate soldiers
to interpose to prevent them. As to the statement
that Gandy would have been living if Jeff had had

W ASHINGTON NEWS.
The Washington correspondent of the New York
Jerald of Saturday sayH:
General Sickles had a protracted intorviewwith
lonoral Grant at the War Department to-day. No
leflnito conclusion waa reached in his caso, and ho
9 atill hore awaiting orderj. Ho has made a fresh
lomand for a court of inquiry to examine into his
dminietrntion of affairs in the Second Military
)iatrict. If it i* not granted he will . probablv re?
ign his commission in the armv, tor the purpose
f making a roply to tho charge made against him
iy President Johnson in his proclamation. While
ie rpmainH in the army he cannot, he says, vindi
ate himself in any other way than by ? court of
iiquiry. Failing to obtain that, he proposes to
esign and go before the people.
Gen. Sickles received an official letter from Gov.
>rr, of South Carolina, this evening, in which the
itter states that while ho was at first opposed to
omo ot Gen. Sickles' orders while in command of
be Third Military District, he is now satisfied that
is administration waa, on tho whole, marked by
rest wiBdom, mod?ration and forboarauce. This,
e says, is the sentiment of the element io South
larohoa which he (Orr; represents. He further
tates that ho believes the people of South Caro?
na aro largely indebted to Gen. Sickles' adminia
ratiou for much of the pro?periiy and good order
revailiug lhere. The Governor closes his lotter,
drich is quite 'engthy. with expressions of regret
t the removal of Sickles.
Intelligence has been receivod horn to the effect
hat the wealthier classes of tho people of North
nd South Carolina have petitioned (lenci al Canrry,
ow in command then, to continue in forT Geno
?I Sickles' Order No.TO. They represent that it
is rescinded tho effect will bo to beggar them,
ecauso if thoir land is put up at public sale under
lie present depressed condition of affairs there it
'ill not bring one-halt ita real value. The petition
aa been widely circulated through the two Statea,

THE DUKE OF REICHST?DT. The remains of the
mfortunatc Duko of Reichst?dt, son of Napoleon
"are to bo brought from their resting place ut

if the Abbey of St. Denis, in Paria. The comuiis
lion charged with tho duty has already boen sp?
linted, auJ Taris will soon havo a funeral show
is a novel excitement. Louis Napoleon is detcr
uined to make hiatory. Just as tho Legitimists
nterpodcd a fictitious reign of Louis XVII, bo
woon tho execution of Louis. XVI. and the resto
.ation of Louis XVIII., ignoring the Republic and
he Empire, HO Louis Napoleon skips over tho
Restoration, the July Monarchy and the Second
Republic, calls himself Napoleon UL, and socks to
111 up tho intervening space with a Nupolcon
[I. Tho child, who waa born Kiug ol Rome, and
[vho died Dnke of Reichst?dt, did indeed occupy,
ivhen three years old, for a very short time, the posi?
lion of Emporor of tho French. That time was
?he interval between the downfall of the Emperor
ind thc restoration of the Bourbons, when his
father abdicated in bia favor. But the tacts of
history aro that he was, from his fourth year to
the dav ot his death, a prisoner at the court of his
grandfather, Francis of AuBtria. This ia the miss?
ing link In the Napoleonic dynasty which the
present Emperor wishes to supply. While the bones
jf thc exiled Prince, who never" knew a kingdom,
rest in thc capital where he pined away bis young
life, his very existence must be a sort ot myth to
the French nation. Let them be conveyed to
France and deposited in a royal mausoleum with
regal honors, and the second Napoleon becomes a
real and tangible personage, completing the suc?
cession and vitalizing the claims nf Louis Napo
leon lo tue title of the Third Emperor. When
show goes for so much, thia ran but have the ef?
fect intended, and history will stand, if not si?

LETTER FROM RICHMOND.
"The castle of Hichmoud stand? l'air ou a hill,
But ruy castle, quoth Allen, htanda gallanter attn."
I have seen many a city famous in story, whose
towers and turrets were gray with the dust of
centuries; but a fairer than Richmond it has never
r een my fortune to v'ew. Enthroned on her seven
hills, once the capital of a great and glori?te com?
monwealth, Bhe, like her far-famed sistewof the
Eastern Continent, has wept bitter tears and been
clothed in ashes. Unlike her, she is fast throwing
off the pall of gloom which has enshrouded her,
and will, ere long, assert herself, as of old, proud
Queen of the James. Little do T wonder at the
love her sons and daughters boar her; she has a
strango fascination for all who come within lier
charmed circle, if they arc not doad to the beauti?
ful. Go whero you will, in or around her, to her
bill tops or her valleys, each landscape is more
charming than all the rest.
I have a particular fancy for "Church Hill;-' not
so fashionable as its neighbor across the valley,
but my favorite part of the city. There stands
">kl Ut. John's, the very embodiment of a sweet,
luiel English village church, so secluded and rural
Iocs it seem. As you stand 'mid tho time-honored
ombs, gazing at tho simple edifice which crowns
U hill-top, you forgot that you aro almost in the
?eart of a great city, resounding with tho hum of
may life, and aro carried back to the timo whon
hat unpretending odifice re-echoed to tho clarion
ones of Virginia'? noble son, PATRICK HENRY-for
his little church has its proud historic memories,
,nd in that boars off tho palm from the more im
?osing structures on "Suockoo Hill."
Leave this classic spot, wander a little further,
nd you come to a high bluff over the river, called
; Lover's Retreat," ^also " Libby's Hill.") A love
ior scene eyes never feasted on than is presented
tere at the sunset hour. Tho clear and beautiful
ames wending its tortuous way through the
reenest fields and woods, until it reaches tho
itv, where its banka are lined on both sides by
ouses, tine factories and mills. Richmond on
lie North and Manchester on the South bank, all
os beneath you Uko a map-the fair city with its
lany spires, its hills and valleys, crowded with
andaome bnildingB ; the noble river spanned by
mg light bridges, adding much to the picturesque
fleet, and in the far distance just over the falls,
'hose music chants an eternal dirge, hes Holly?
rood-city of the dead.^There sleep many of our
olflest and bravest -meeter resting place could
ot bo found, as it lies bathed in the golden light
f the western sky, whose glory linders with a liv
ig kiss upon its sacred brow.
Aa the shades of evening dose in, and all is
rapped in a soft mantle of mellow, misty dim
oaa, I turned away, full of sad musings o'er the
right aspirations and tho blighted hopes of the
ast, which thia scene bringa so vividly to mind.
Rut away with rnpinlngs. We must be up and

MARRIAGE OK A HINDOO GIRT, TO AN IDOL.-The
illowing curious account of the marriage of a
undoo gul to an idol is given by the Oude
"Some time ago a paper of the northwestern
rovincea announced the arrival of .tu old Deccan
trahmin with his family in the town of Muthra,
rhere Rungacharee. the high priest of the Rania
oogeo spot, greatly patronized him. The old
Irabniin has two daughters, ono n grown-up girl,
nd the other only nine years old. While residing
t Muthra the younger girl gave out that Karishna
30 (oncof the incarnations of Vishnu, the Hindoo
oil), appeared to her in a dream, and proposed a
uptial alliance with her. Next day the girl was,
rith great pomp, married to an idol worshipped in
Hindoo temple. The ignorant and superstitious
eoplejejoiced at this absurd marriage, and began
ry wno'rate the girl as an inspired being. Both
ac girls have barned by heart eighteen thousand
onplets of tho 'Bhagwut,' a work in the Sanscrit
uiguago. They have now arrived in thia city and
ut up at a house in the vicinity or tho "'Gole
lurwiza.' Every mornins: Hindoos of all ages
nd sexes congregate there to hear tho melodious
ecitations of tho two girls. Both the girls con
irler themselves as dedicated to tho sorvice of th?
lod Krishna; and after their daily recitations are
oncluded thnv maleo no hesitation ia accepting
uch presenta of money and sweetmeats a? their
earcra may ehooao to give them. We havo little
oubt that they have already reaped A rich harvest
.on? their deluded votarioa."
IanrioR vTioN FROM THE NORTH.- Tho Staunton
indicator espressos what we believe to bo tho
euora! feeling when it says there is nothing more
herring than the not ines of tho division and sale
f landa in every portion of Virginia, to Northern
len of capital and enterprise, and of good repu
ition at homo, who propose to como and live
mong us. In the past few months, it continues,
rc Bcnroely pick up an exchange that does not
hronicle the salo .if lands, Arc, to some worthy
lorthcrn gentleman. Wo may thoroforo conclude
hat prejudice and passion have "had their day"
n circulating baso rumors of bad treatment to
?orthern immigrants and that this tide of immi?
xtion, so long restrained by idle stories and
?therwiae, has turned in this direction. Wo trust
hat it has, and would desire to impress upon the
.eoplo of that section to investigate the advan
ages Virginia offers far outreaching those of
lewer States, apd assure them that worthy immi
:rants will meet with a kind reception at the
