The Republican party of this County
is divided into two formidable parties.
Each wing has a candidate in tho field
to fill the vacancy in the Legislature oc?
casioned by tho resignation of General
L. G. Estes. The contest is the most
bitter known in the history of this
County. One of the most prominent
leaders of one of the factions in a speech
to-day predicted bloodshed before the
campaign was over. It is entirely a
family quarrel, in which the conservativos
and Democrats take no part, and will
run no candidate. The most extreme
faction is led by Geo. Z. French aud
other Northern whites, who have nomi?
nated a negro candidate. The other fac?
tion is composed almost entirely of ne?
groes, who have nominated a white can?
didate. It is fonnd neoessary to station
a strong force of police at all meetings
held in this city. The most bitter per?
sonalities are indulged in by many of the
speakers, and several slight collisions
have already ocenrred.

HonninLE MURDER.-Miss Evans killed

When General Grant was first elected
to the Presidency, his triumph was so
thoroughly complete, his popularity so
great, his psst history so illustrious, and
his future so promising, that oven his
political foes regarded his re-election for
ono or two succeeding terms as inevita?
ble. Yet now, on tho very threshold, as
it were, of his administration, two pa?
pers in New England, echoed by tho
Cincinnati Commercial, have nominated
Mr. Boutwell for President in 1872.

POLAND.-Tho commandant of the

reports to tho Governor of the kingdom
that that the system of Russification at?

sian Government, and tho efforts made
to induce them to adopt the Russian lan?
guage and accept the Greek Church have
only brought the peasantry into closer
relations with tho Polish nobles and the
Roman Catholic clergy, through fear of
a common danger. The Russian officials
are far less useful and efficient than the
displaced Polish officers, and bring the
Government into disrepute by their ig
noranoe and their disgraceful conduct
