Last evening, Lord Stanley, Sec?
retary of Foreign Affairs, made an
important statement, in answer to a
question asking for information
HeBaid he had already sent a com?
munication to the United States, on
the matter of naturalization, the sub?
stance of which was that the British
Ministry was ready to accept the
American views on the question; ho
therefore thought a misunderstand?
ing between the two nations was
impossible. Stanley also stated that
he bad deolined to make a treaty at
present, as .the Koyal Commission
are still considering the general sub?
ject, and for the additional reason
that time will not permit the passage
of a bill at the present session of
. News Itenia.

GALVESTON, Texas, July 17.-On
the evening of the 15th, a riot com?
menced at Millican, on the Central
Railroad. A mob of about twenty
five negroes, led by a white school?
teacher, and a negro preacher uamed
Brooks, attempted to hang n man
named William Haliday. Tho white
citizens prevented the execution,
and, headed by the Sheriff and a
Bureau agent, attempted to suppress
the mob, which resulted iu the death
of ten or twelve negroes. Ou the
16th, the numbers increased on both
sides. Skirmishing occurred during
the day, and the casualties are esti?
mated at twenty-five.
A small body of troops arrived late
last night, and dispersed the rioters,
killing throe negroes. Tho latter,
numbering 300 to 500, had fortified
themselves three miles from Millican,
and refused to lay down their arms
till tho troops dispersed them. The
entiro number killed, amounts to fifty
or sixty. The difficulty is said to
aroso from a suspicion that a negro
member of tho loyal league had been
hung, but who has boon found.
WASHINGTON, July 17.-lu the
Senate, last night, Senator Hen?
dricks endeavored to recall the bill
from the House which removes poli?

In tho House, to-day, Dawes pre?
sented the credentials of Kellogg,
Pierce and Buckley, claiming seat3
as Representatives from Alabama,
and asked reference to the Commit?
tee on Elections. Brooks inquired
whether it would not bo proper for
the committee to inquiro whether
these gentlemen were elected at a
one-sided election. Dawe* said tho
committeo would inquiro faithfully
as to any matter oommitted to them.
They simply made an examination
of those credentials, to ascertain if
they wero correct, and whether they
presented a prima facio case. The
credentials were referred to the Com?
mittee on Elections. The creden?
tials of the Louisiana Representa?

STATES rou SEYMOUR AND BLAIR.
In canvassing the question with the
delegates to the Convention, since
the nomination was made, the fol?
lowing States aro put down as sure
for Seymour and Blair:
Connecticut, 6; New York, 33;
New Jersey, 7; Pennsylvania, 26;
Ohio, 21; Indiana, 13; Oregon, 3;
Nevada, 3; California, 5; Delaware,
3; Kentucky, ll; Missouri, ll; Kan?
sas, 3; Wisconsin, 8; Maryland, 7.
One hundred and fifty-nine votes,
says the World, are all that is neces?
sary for election, and, in the above
tables, there aro 160 electoral votes,
without counting ono of the South?
ern States eugaged in tho rebellion.
In the li?t of States given, every one,
save threo, in which a State election
has been held in the last eighteen
months, has gone Democratic. In
all, the local elections have exhibited
great Democratic gains, sufficient to
insure the States for the Democracy
this fall. Wo have not counted Illi?
nois in tho list, but the delegates to
tho Convention declared that there
was no doubt but Pendleton could
carry that State. If it would be
certain for Pendleton, then it eau be
safely counted for Seymour and
Blair. In addition to this, the
States of Alabama, Georgia and Mis?
sissippi aro certain to give a Demo?
cratic majority, with auy fair chance
for voting. This will give twenty
four more electoral votes, and swell
the Democratic column to 184. But
tho Republicans aro laboring to ex?
clude the votes of tho States of Vir?
ginia, Texas and Mississippi, by le?
gislation in Congress. If the electoral
votes of these States aro not counted,
then there will bo in the electoral
collego 294 votes, and 148 will bo all
that will bo necessary to elect. The
Democracy can then lose Ohio, and
still secure a majority of the electoral
college, without counting any from
the South; or, by carrying Ohio,
they can loso Missouri, Wisconsin
and Kausas, and still elect their
ticket, without receiving a vote from
tho South. There is, therefore,
every reason for encouragement to
the Democracy; and tho election of
Seymour and Blair may bo put down
as a certainty.
TUE SOUTHERN VOTES Binn.-The
New York Journal of Commerce, with
referenco to thc bill which has just
passed Congress, relative to votes of
tho Southern States in the Presiden?
tial election, says:
It is an undisguised political de?
vice, designed to make sure tho elec?
tion of Grant and Culfax by throw?
ing out of the electoral collego every
Southern Democratic. State. Wo
doubt whether any honorable niau of
either party can bo found to apolo?
gize for or extenuate this scheine.
If realized, it may achieve the suc
coss of Grant and Colfax, but it will
forever redound to tho disgraso of
tho party which permitted so fla?
grant a wrong to bo done. If Con?
gress should refuse to admit South?
ern electoral votes, on tho plea that
tho South is still rebellions and not to
bo trusted with political rights, wo
might smile at tho stupidity of such
a statement and pity tho Congress
that knew no bettor. But to do it,
openly and avowedly, (or the same as
avowedly,) with tho object of de?
feating tho nominees, this is a depth
of shamo, indeed, for tho legislation
of this country to be dragged into.

The Blue ll lil gc Railroad.
I MB. EDITOR: Your usual kindness
in publishing whatever will forward
the interests of the Blue Ridge Rail?
road, induces me again to call your
attention to this subject Hereto?
fore, the friends of this enterprise
have looked mainly to its great
Western connections for its principal
business and income; not relying, to
any great extent, upon local popula?
tion or local trade. But the increas?
ing interest now felt and manifested
in the development of the mineral
and agricultural resources of our
mountain country, is indicative of
what the future of this part of our
country will be.
I send you two most interesting
letters on this subject, and will fol?
low it up, with other short commu?
nications ou the climate, mineral,
agricultural and manufacturing re?
sources of Anderson and Fickens
Districts, and Rabun County, Geor?
gia, demonstrating the great necessi?
ty for the immediate completion of
this railroad. . J. W. HARRISON,
President Blue Bridge Railroad.
ANDERSON, Juno 17, 1868.
WALHALLA, S. C., May 12. 1868.
Gen. J. W. Harrison, President vf the
Blue Ridije Railroad.
DEAR SIH: While advocating fie
completion of the railroad heneo tc
Knoxville, Tenn., I feel assured you
will not lose sight of tho value of thc
different metallic belts, that will bt
traversed in its North-west course
Having bestowed much attontior
upon tho mineral belts of this coun
try, the practical developments made
authorize mo to offer to you th?
assurance that they aro both rici
aud extensive. Iron and iron ore
are abundant; but, unless a chea]
supply of coal can bo obtained alouj
the line of rond, cannot be worke(
advantageously. Hence, wo are no
able to reap auy bouetit from thes
vast beds, although lime abounds ii
their vicinity, until a carboniferou
formation along the Blue Bidg
Road can bo reached. The oxistouc
of copper in this part of tho State
as well as in the adjoining Countie
of North Carolina, has been we
ascertained. Tho veins arc numci
OU9, well defined, nnd explored to
depth of several hundred feet. War
of fuel, prevented their being active
ly worked; for the crude ores mus
be Bmelted, ere tho regulus can I
shipped. Tho transportation ovt
the mountain roads, from the mi m
to the railroad nt Walhalla, woul
prove more expensive than from thi
point to the smelting works i
Baltimore. I have no expectatic
of finding coal in this section, bi
West of the Blue Ridge I have ol
served that tho primary formation
frequently overlaid by tho second
ry; and tho indications aro, that tl
railroad may be* instrumental :
opening that valuable system. Oi
mining interest would thou becou
paramount to any other; while tl
carrying of ores and coal, in sean
of each other, would bo a cousidei
bio item in the revenue of the ron
The discoveries and inventions of t
day, would placo another very bea
incomo within reach of the rnilro
eompauy, by their carrying the go
ores, or rather the auriferous quart
to points at which the new proc<
of desulphurizing them, and th
liberating the minute particles
gold, is in operation. Tho aurif?re
quartz, along the lino of road, is :
exhaustible; and much will find
way North, when you consider tl
shipments already made have yield
upward of $500 per tou, while I
reduction at tho mines amounted
only seventy-five dollars per t<
Our mountain ronds are so diffic
that tho transportation of engin
stumping works, ?fcc, is almost i
possible; and thus tho full devel
ment of all tho mines, in this sect:
of country, is dependent upou
completion of the railroad.
Whito County, Georgia, a min
eompauy aro now preparing a si
ment of ten tons of this quartz
Now York, whence they will rec<
somo twenty tons of machine
Walhalla is their nearest point
railroad; and I am convinced 1
the samo belts, whence that qui
is obtained, abound in the Coun
of tho throe States, through wi
this road will pass. I have va
freo to invite your attention bri
to a few of tho minerals which, \
a railroad passing through tl
belts, will attract Northern eu
prise, sustain tho road, and aid in
recuperation of tho country. I c<
speak to you of tho Galena belt,
passes through tho country, yield
at a depth of 200 feet, an on
eighty per cent, lead, and ono
cont, silver, had it an imp?t
bearing upon the incomo of
road. Yet, I must not forgo
allude lo tho immense beds
manguuese, of chronium, so n
moro deserving of attention, v
tho Pennsylvania beds display
dent symptoms of exhaustion, ar
an immense deposit of silicate, w
$200 to $300 a ton, at tho Si
Porcolain works, but now of no i
for want of transportation.
I trust you will pardon these c
remarks, and charge them tc
fact that, in tho construction of
railroad alone, I can per?oive
turn to prosperity.
With much esteem,
H. W. K?HTMAN
THE DUTY OF THE SOUTHERN PEO?
PLE.-The people of Virginia, and,
indeed, of the whole South, owe it
to the D?mocratie party of the North
to do all that ia in their power to
give success to tho ticket now before
the country, and tc abstain from
every net and word that can in any
manner tend to jeopard that succ?s*.
Thia is no time for carping and ob?
jecting, and no time for raising dead
issues or reviving old and exploded
ideas. The platform is os good a
one and as strong a one as could have
been constructed. It bravely under?
takes to carry as much as it can bear.
Let us beware how we of the South
And fault with it, or attempt to crowd
upon it what may weaken it. "We
must take it and tho candidates that
are running upon it. just as they aro.
Tho cry has already been raised at
tho North, that it is a rebel ticket
and a rebel'platform. Let us prove
by our moderation and prudence that
this cry is false and slanderous, and
that all that we are striving for, is
admission to tho Union undor tho
Constitution, nnd on tho basis laid
down by that great and pntriotic
Northoru party that gave us this
platform and these caudidatos. That
Southern man who shall now, by in?
temperance of conduct or language,
injure the great cause of Democratic
success, Southern redemption and
constitutional restoration, will com?
mit a sin too heinous to bo named.
It may bo that radicalism will en?
deavor to help itself by Southern
riots. Should such be its policy, lot
us so act as to convince the world
that we are blameless. Every man
in tho South should feel it to be the
requirement, not only of duty and
gratitude, but of honor, to abstain
from every act and every expression
that eau in any mnuner inj uro tho
cause of our friends in tho North.
NEW MOTIVE POWER FOR STREET
CARS.-A Mr. C. M. Waylio, an
ingenious mechanic of New Orleans,
has been for some timo engaged in
devising n method of applying com?
pressed air to the purpose of propell?
ing street cars. On Thursday lost,
au experiment was tried in New
Orleans, which seems to have con?
vinced all who were present of tho
feasibility of the project. Tho New
Orleans Picayune says "each car by
this process can be run about seven
dollars cheaper per diem that at
present, thero will bo less danger of
accidents, and a moro uniform rato
of speed can be maintained." Mr.
Waylio has secured the patent right
for his invention, and a stock com?
pany has already been formed, for
placing this power upon cars now
drawn by nnimals. No change will
bo necessary in tho construction of
the present cars.
CAUTION TO EXCURSIONISTS.-Tho
New York Tribune, of Monday, gives
the following account of a melancholy
accident, which should serve as a
warning to excursionists:
While a party of pleasure-seekers
were returning from Dudley's Grove,
by tho steamer Stephen Low, aud
were landing passengers, last oveu
ing, at 152d street, a girl fell over?
board and was drowned. Officer
Corlett, iu trying to secure her, was
also drowned. The crowd, rushiug
to the side of the boat, broke a rail,
and a dozen moro fell into the
water. As thero are nino unclaimed
hats at tho Carmansvillo police sta?
tion, it is supposed that as rnany
persons were drowned. Tho bodies
of tho officer and girl had not been
recovered up to midnight.
THE GOLD FIELDS OF ALASKA.
The United States Consul at Victo?
ria, Vancouver's Island, in reporting
to the State Department tho wreck
of tho schooner 1 'Louisa Down," on
nu expedition to explore the gold re?
gions of Alaska, says that this expe?
dition was beiug led by au old aud
experienced miner named Freuchie,
who had prospected tho Skiena Uiver
country tho previous season, and had
found therein a rich gold field. So
confident aro miners who knew
Frenchie, in his statement, that an?
other expedition is beiug organized
for tho Skiena Uiver country, and
will sail in a few days. lu another

have reached us by telegraph already,
to the effect that tho minera had
found a rich field of gold, and were

Speaking of stenographic law re?
porting, Judgo Cardoso, of New
York, said: "Tho stenographers aro
generally wrong; I have found them
almost invariably wrong, and I shall
bo governed by my notes. I think
they wero intended rather for indo?
lent judges thau otherwise."
DEATH OF A CHARLESTONIAN.-Mr.
John Hogan, an old resident, left
Charleston a few days since, on a
visit to the North. While in New
York during the present heated term,
ho fell a victim to a sun-stroko, and
tho telegraph on Wednesday advised
his family of his sudden demise.
Hot weather everywhere. In the
Tribune editorial rooms, the nearest
place to tho infernal regions on earth,
at ll o'clock last oveniug, tho
mercury stood 106 deg., with a strong
Dipping the hands and wrists in
cold water, is recommended ns an
infallible method for "cooling off"

A difficulty occurred iu Walter
boro, on Monday last, between
Messrs. W. H. Bellinger and Clarence
Fish burne; pistols were used, and
the former received a ball in the
nook, and the latter two in the re?
gion of the knee. The wounds are
DROUGHT.-The crops of Chester
District are suffering very much for
want of rain, and unless it comes
soon, the upland corn will be de?
stroyed, as it is now nearly five weeks
since some portions of tue Distriot
have been blessed with rain.
One of onr exchanges praises an
egg, which, it says, "was laid on our
table by the Bev. Mr. Smith." Mr.
Smith seems to bo a layman as well
as a minister.
