A Washington correspondent ot tho
Express, a Radical p^p?r p?pliabid ?n..
Pensacola, says In a lato letter:
"The notion of Admiral Leo in allow
? ing tho band of the flag-ship 'Severn' to
serenade prominent .ex-officers ot the do
innot Confederacy, ia receiving in this
-city tho conpuro it justly merits, and tho
matter will be brought before the Seore
tory of tho'Navy, and-in a,manner that
will demand an investigation."'
This is a specimen of the spirit of the
ruling party. Thogo individuals aro con
iinnaliy complaining of the stubborn TO
. calcitranco and ill feeling.toward thom of
thc "ex-rebels." ' They whine about
"social ostracism" and the.ooh! aversion
.toward them exhibited by Southern peo
- plo. It is not ?t all unnatural that, dur
. iug all these yeare cf . military rul?, en
.forced . ''recorastruotiuu," broken pro?
mises, spurious constitutional amend?
ments, disfranchisement, negro domina
. tioQ, bayonet bills, and tho like, thoro
should have oontinucd to exist that sen?
sitiveness and soreness of heart which
vconquest always entails for a time. Ono
object of these things was to perpetuate
humiliation, -td keep: Open the old
wounds, and then ta complain of discon?
tent ?nd 1'rebelliousness." But occa
- banally comea into tho Sooth some emi?
nent civilian like Doolittle, some soldier
.like Hancock, or some sailor Uko Ad mi
- ral Loo, of undoubted fidelity to the
"Union" canse, and of nnimpoaohable
' "war record" from a Northern view?
point, but who looks upon the war as
fought' and finished, and does not con?
vener it ft part of patriotio duty to perse?
cute anid humiliate, the vanquished.
When ?nch a man comes, he is always
received in a spirit reap o naive- to hie
. own; the, proffered Hand is accepted with
-ready frankness, and every indication ol
courteous and kindly feeling is recipro?
in the ca se of Admiral Lee's lalo vii
to Pensacola, a disposition was shows
on tho part ot the Federal officers tc
. onltivato amicable relations with the cit?
izens, and, aa -we .-are authentically in<
?formed, this friondly spirit was cordially
rcciprcoated. On one occasion tho bane
of-fbe? "Severn" was sent ashore bj
?Captain.Fitzhngh, her immediate com
mander, to' ploy in the public, square
for their own oxeroiao oud lor tho enter
tai ninon t of tho oitizeua. After thi
practice in the square was finished, thi
officers in charge of tho baud took it u]
t o givo a complimentary serenade td Cap
tain Brent, en old and- highly esteomot
officer of .the United-States Navy bofor<
tho war, and to Mr. Mallory, who ba<
Iobg.been associated with the samo ser
vico, as Chairman of the Naval Commit
-tee in the United States Senate. The;
wore not serenaded aa "rebels," but a
former associates, ignoring tho disastron
events ol later years. It might be sup
posed that each a compliment would mee
the moat unqualified approval of mei
whoso professed motto is "Let ns hav
peace.'" But shah is not the spirit c
the little-minded officials who bani
.-around the court of the present ruler o
-'thia glorious republic." It is thei
policy to keep alive all ill-fooling, to Bur.
press every demonstration of amity, an
st the samo timo to lay the blame upo
"ox-rebels." In the casa just meutionec
there was ho possible room left for thi
last, and. accordingly Admiral Lee mut
bo hauled over the coala for showing a
unpatriotic Epirit of good-will toward
these ex-rebels, his old'friends and assc

Our botemporary ?j? the .AUgusja
Ghroniclgcan'l Sentinel tjlhs truthfully ex?
plains the import of . tbe' recent North
Carolina election. Tbe interpretation j
thus given we regard: jost and aoourate:
"Tho North Carolina 6 Democratic
journals seem to aonoede that the State
has gone against convention by a majo?
rity ranging from 5,000 to 15,000 votes
the lowest estimate being, probably, the
most correct. Although tho call for a
convention vas defeated, and although
the Republican papers North and South
are crowing lustily thereat, it is an ab?
surdity to term the result n Radical vic?
tory. Tho election in North Carolina
last year-when every advantage was
with the Radicals-demonstrated very
plainly that the Democrats bad n largo
working majority in the Stute. If they
were defeated in tho late campaign, it
was not their enemies, but a wing of
thoir own force, which caused the disas?
ter. Tho constitution adopted in 18G8,
uoder the reconstruction laws, declared
that a convention should not bo called to
amend it until after ten years had
elapsed. Tho Democratic Legislature
ohosen last August voted in favor of as?
sembling a convention without regarding
this provision. Thin action frightened
all tho timid men in tho party, who wero
afraid of an?thor reconstruction in casu
tho movement proved successful. lu
, th?B belief thoy wero strengthened by
i tho Radical journals of the State and of
? the whole country. The administration
I also interfered for the purpose of en?
couraging this idea. The Attorney
General of the United States stumped
North Carolina in the interest of tho
Radicals, and boldly proclaimed that if
the Demoorats were successful-if a new
constitution was framed and officers
eleotod under it-there would be two
State governments for Congress to
choose between, and left the impression
that the old government would be tho
one sustained. Under these circum?
stances a largo number of Demoprats
who wero anxious for quiet, and afraid
of Congressional interference, voted
against convention, and thus the day was
OHOBEUA.-Some ulai m is beginning
to be felt in Western Europe and the
seaports of tho United States at the
threatened approach of tho cholera. It
has been prevailing for somo time in
Central Russia, and has, we aro inform?
ed, carried off nearly half the popula?
tion of some villages. More recently ii
has spread over Liethnania, and thence
extended its ravages through other pro?
vinces of Russian Poland, and Inn
broken out in Posen and East Prussia,
It has been prevailing, also, in tho Da?
nubian Principalities, in Transylvanie
and Galicia, and some cases have beor
reported at Marseilles. The New Yuri
papers aro taking the alarm, and, apro
pos ot tbe Bubjeot, we find a paragrapl
in the Sun, stating that the "pestilence
fly" has made its appearance in that city
Il is described as "a little longer thai
the common house fly, with very trans
parent wings of a slightly purple hue
The head is perfectly round, of a dari
brown color, with a whito mark on th?
faoe. Tho body is divided like tin
wasp's.^ The round portion next thi
head to which tho wings aro attached, i
of an invisible green. Tho remainde
of the body from the waist to tho tai
presents alternate rings of jet blaok an<
a pale yellow. It has six legs, whioh an
longer than tho common fly's." Tho in
sect is said to be a precursor of cholon
"or other dire pestilence."
There oan no longer bo a doubt rc
maiuiugas to the successful candidat
for the Presidency in 1872. Mrs. Vic
toria Woodhull is "tho woman win
dares," and who has established the Vic
toria Leiguo. Prona one of her circu
lars, now lying before us, wo learn Ihn
tho association is now organized, equip
ped nnd in working order, wit? its agea
oies in New York, Boston, Philadelphia
Cincinnati, Chioago, St. Louis and Sai
Francisco. Its mission is to create th
"Equal Rights Party," whioh is to fora
from Congress a "declaratory act,1
something like Tittlebat Titmouse's fa
mous bill to give everybody everythiDj
and herself the Presidency. Now is th
time for strong-minded matrons to pil
in. When the women are in arms the;
are invariably irresistible.
A Washington 'telegram says: "Th
Grand Army of the Republic, as an or
ganization, has taken in hand the matte
of the appointment of ex-Confederate
to positions ander the General Govern
ment. The poBts here will briug th
matter to tho attention of the Nations
Encampment, and will demand the re
moval of all who are employed to th
exclusion of Union soldiers. Of coors
this ought to include Gen. Longatreo
and Attorney-General Ackerman. Mern
bera of. tho Grand Army say they wil
vote for no man who favors these ap
pointments, and will go against Gen
Grant himself unless he makes a chang*
pr secs that it is made."

?.Tho following letter to'the Charleston
?ourHer, dated Blackville, August 11/
anows a condition of affairs in, that. sec?
tion of cou utry that calls loudly for the
eierciso of the strong arm of the law:
I would beg to briug to the attontion
of tho Governor, and the citizens of the
State, tho condition of an affair in this
neighborhood. About ten days ago, a
nogro man was brutally murdered in tho
adjoining County, Orangeburg, about
eleven miles from this place, at night,
and some Other uogroes disturbed by tho
party. Suspicion rests on two or three
brothers, sumed Porter, great despera?
does, outlaws, and fugitives from justice.
They murdered a white mun named Jor?
unu, about a year ago, who wa? pretty
much of the same CIUBS ns themselves.
Ono man named Paul boa buen arrest?
ed, and the negro population ure on the
hunt for tho Portera. They are out in a
party of 75 to 10!), occupying a dallant
uttitude, armed and guarding; tho cross
iug of the Edisto, about HHVUU miles
Lonee, at the "new" or Duncan's bridge.
They threaten to press provisions, order
men not to go iuto tho river to fish, aud
enid last Saturday that if tho Porters
wore not arrested in two weeks, they
would commence to take vengeance in
their owu banda, killing from the cradle
up. This they said Lu Captain Siduey
Wise, a respousiblo geutleinuu, in the
presence of other parties. They profusa
to act under authority iu hunting the
country as un organized, armed party,
impelling travel ou a publie highway,
und makiug it dangerous for persons to
cross tho river, especially nt night.
Wo would bo glad to have the authori?
ties of the State disper.su this party, and
put the proper officers of the law to work
to apprehend the murderers and bring
them to just punishment. But the peace
generally of tho country should not bu
disturbed by this band of ignorant and
infuriated men, who say things they m ny
not mean, but which may arouse a gene?
ral hostility and eui s o blood iii ed. Will
tho Governor send a proper officer to tho
scene? Respectfully, A. X.
TUIIN TUE GUNS AGAINST THE COMUON
ENEMY.-Tho Tiphon Record, a Georgia
journal, thus properly raises its voie J iu
behalf of Democratic unity, and against
the suicidal policy of a house divided
against itself. That paper says:
"A THING TO UE STOPPED.-Perhaps
the greatest grievance which now n 111 ic ts
this country, in viow of the next Presi?
dential election, is the wild wrangling
and execrable bitterness which charac?
terizes tho editorial columns of somo of
our leading Democratic journals. Tho
'Now Departure' men ou one hand, and
tho 'Bourbons1 on tho other, have
turned their oditoriul batteries upon
eaoh other, and every volley they lire
tends to spread confusion in the ranks
of the Democracy. Those editorial
digladiations may be matters of deep
iuterest to tho editors themselves, but
they are mutters of deep disgust to their
readers. More than ordinary political
preuciouce may be requisite to peer
through tho cloud of corruption which
now envelopes tho Government, and
discover boyond the way of wisdom that
will lead us again into the paths of po?
litical purity, but it ouly requires the
oyo of common sense to nee that tho
8ocds which this untimely discussion is
sowing broadcast over the land can only
ripen into a fruitful harvest of confu?
sion, discord nod disintegration, when
all should be order, harmony aud unity
iu tho Democratic party.
"If tho same power of learning and
labor, tact uud talent, employed to gain
the mastery of each other iu disputa?
tion, by journals engaged in this discus?
sion, wero turned against the Radical
robbers of the nation, tho patriotic heart
of tho country would beat responsive to
their efforts. This is no timo for strife
between tho friends of freedom. It is
no timo fur mutiny on board the ship of
State when n plundering, piratical crew
have rushoVLup?u her duck*, robbed hor
of her richest treasures, seized the helm,
and aro steering her toward tho vortex
of a political mielstrom. Tho spirit of
cordial bato which seems lo mutually in?
spire tho hearts of tho 'New Departure'
and tho 'Bourbon' editors, meets with
no kindred sentiment among the musses
of tho people. Theso editors may wage
their warfare until the fountains of bit?
terness are drained dry, aud tho vocabu?
lary of billingsgate exhausted, but the
masses of tho peuple will not endorse
their wrangling. Tho Southern people
will bo united, and will act in harmony,
aud will mareil iu solid phalanx against
tho enemies of liberty, if theso editors
fail in their evil efforts to nrray thom in
hostility against each other.
"Tho whole purpose of both parties
to this nonsensical controversy is pro?
fessedly to arrunge n platform of princi?
ples for tho Democraoy in 1872. Now,
it requires no prophet to foretell that
the longer tho controversy continues tho
moro malignant it will grow, and the
less likelihood thero will be of any agree?
ment. It has beon thought that it was
the province pf editors laboring in n
common cause to unite the people, but
ut this particular juncture, Democratic
editors ure divided amoug themselves,
uni thorn in no strife union? the people."

. . 'Ait INCIDENT OF TOB-LATH "WAR.-A
correspondent of tho Norfolk Virginian,
writing from Coynor's Springs, Botetourt
Oounty, Virginia, gives the following in?
teresting incident of the late war:
I remember a little incident of the
Confederacy wbiob occurred hero in 18(31,
and it may not be improper to relate it
here. At the oommenoemcut of tho
war, when every ono WUB excited, und
the spirit of rebellion manifesting itself
in tho spirit of ovory Southern man, the
Eroprietor of tho springs waa ready to
oist Ibo secession flag upon the hotel.
A crowd of spectators bad gathered to
witness the unfurling of tho Southern
banner. Everything was quiet Bavo the
blood in the veins of those present, UH
Ibo trap-door on tho top of the building
flow up aud tho colors of secession were
raised to tho ling stuff. All were eager
to give n rousing oheer, but tho:o was no
breeze and the flag bung motionless by
tho polo. Nothing was said for u few
moments, when little Arthur, the son of
Mr. A., tho proprietor, recollecting what
he hud been taught to Mo whou?iu dis?
tress, raisod his halide and said, "wait a
minute," nud started off by himself.
Some of UH watched tho boy until wo Baw
him go undor un old pair of stops mid
kneel dowu where ho thought none could
soo him, wheu wo saw him praying. lu
a few minutes hu came.mouing up tn the
crowd, and, pointing to tho Hug, ex?
claimed, "look ont, now;" nud, strang"
us it may ?oom to some, almost ut tho
very moment, a breezo Hprung up and
the beautiful fing of thu Confederacy
floated gracefully in tho wind, and the
iittlo fellow's faith in Ilia touchings of
his molher, that (Jod would un. wer
prayer, remained unshaken.
Tm: NEW.YORK MILITIA.-It is either
a good thing (says tho New York Tri?
bune) for thu digestion lo belong to tho
State Guard, or a capital thing for tho
pocket to lin caterer to the regiments on
parado and riot days. Either the militia
aro inordinate eaters or their sutlers are
tho boldest"of chargers. Tho Supervi?
sors of Tammany yesterday received
aud examined tho bills of tho several
restaurant-keepers who furnished re?
freshments to the regiments on July 12,
and some of them aro curious enough
wheu examined in detail. Tho gallant
and aristocratic 7th managed to feed ut
an expense to the city of 81.50 a mau,
which would certainly haye been a libe?
ral alla wu nco for rations if the regiment
had been doiug good and hard service in
Virgiuia once more. But the 96th,
which it is well known did no lighting
ou the 12th, though it apparently did itH
fall duty in eating, cost $2.50 for each
man, ollicer and private. At thc same
time, tho mon of the H 1th regiment, ou
which tho brant of battlo fell, mauuged
to subsist ou eleven cents each for the
day. Lot us not be understood as re?
flecting on_tho militia. Thoy deserved
all tho food and praise and thanks they
got that horrid day.
Tho following is n description iu tho
Vulkszeitung of tho effect of tho lats war
on Oerman industry: "The war has not
only interrupted work, but has destroyed
thousands of places of work. The
.1,000,000 thalers which aro to be spent
for the assistance of thoso who havo suf?
fered loss are ns a drop on a hot stone,
which, hissing, drops on to it and in an
instant dioappcars in smoko. Thousands
of men of the landwehr and reserve re?
turn to their homes crowned with vic?
tory and covered with wreaths, but they
lind their dwellings destitute, their
wives in want, their children neglected,
their work-shops destroyed, their cus?
tomers dispersed, their credit shaken,
aud the want of their manufacture les?
sened. Their rent ?9 still due, which
has accumulated for u year. New tools
have to bo bought, which their wives,
in times of distress, havo either pawned
or sold. Materials have to be laid in
stock to enable them, in ease of an or?
der being given, to begin work. Repairs
and clothes aro necessary. Tho bilkers,
butchers and retailors have got to bu
paid. If work is not begun ?tl once, the
cry of distress will soon be as distinctly
heard as the echo of rejoicing."
The following incident of tho West?
field disaster is given by tho New York
Sun, and sh mid serve as a caution to all
Yesterday afternoon, some fri tinda of
Mrs. Eliza Kerschner, pf Jersey City,
one of tho worst sufferers, persisted in

upper part of her person and her face,
which was horribly blackened and whol?
ly unrecognizable. Still she was doiug
well, nud her nurses eutertaiued Btrong
hopes of her recovery. But lier un?
thinking friends, on gaining admission
to her bedsido, began talking to her in
Gorman, which tho ntirso could not un?
derstand, and thereforo did not check
thom. But it seems they told her of tho
death of her husbuud, which had hith?
erto for prudential reasons been kept
from her. On bearing this startling
news, she gave a piercing scream, raised
borself in her bed, threw her arms up
frantically, and full back a corpse.

SUPREME COURT DECISION, AUGUST 12
Jonas Byrd et at. vs. Thomas R. Small
Motion dismissed. Opinion by Wright
The Philadelphia 'Presa sayal "If: the '
opposition would confino themselves to
an honest discussion.of the principles of *
tho partied, and a truthful exumiention
of the history and record of each, the
campaigns would be elevated to a higher
respectability, and made far less unplea?
sant than now, wheu slander and vilifi?
cation and downright misrepresentation
are the adopted tactics. Instead of aim?
ing to givo correct information, tho pa?
pers of the opposition seem bent on fill?
ing the minds of those they oan influ?
ence with prejudice, and for this pur?
pose do not hesitate to presume upon,
their want of information." This from
a papor which, for the last fire years,
has slandered and vilified the Southern
, people and the Democratic party more
persistently and venomously, and has
done more to pr?judice tho North against
the South, than half the other Radical '
papers in Pennsylvania combined.

The New York Sun gives us this inter?
esting little romance: "A follower ol
Wesley, and a preacher of righteousness,'
came to the Senate from a Western State:
pious and poor. Serving first in the.
north wing of the capitol, then in the
Department of the Interior, 'and then
again at the capitol, he waxed riob, dwelt
in his own lavishly-garnished, brown
stone mansion, and kept a carriage
which the "Archbishop of Canterbury'
would have envied." The Sun ought to
be a littlo more careful, or the Rev. Sen?
ator Harlan will think it is talking about
him. ? " - ?..
THE NEXT STATE FAIR.--Keep it be?

premium list is before the public Let
our people move out upon this line.

LIFE TOO SHORT, YET WASTED.-Pliny
makes a striking computation in regard
to tko shortness of life. Wo never recall
it without being powerfully impressed by
its truth. "Consider," he says, "the
time spent in sleep, and you will find
that a man actually lives only half his
space. The other half passes in a state
resembling death. You do not take into
account the years of infancy, which are
destitute of reason, nor the many dis?
eases and tho many cares of old age,
those-penalties of longevity. The senses
grow dull, the limbs are raokod,- the
sight, the heating, tho power of walking,
tho teeth', ulso, die before us; and yet all
this time is reckoned in the period of a
lifo." But, short.os life is at the best,
those who comploJ?^?f its .brevity let it
slide by them without wishing .to seize
and make the most of ita golden mo?
ments. How. mach timo do we waste in
indecision, in vain regrets, delusive
hopes and ungrounded fears! What a
vast portion of our previous existence ia .
wasted in mere waiting-waiting - for
something that seems necessary for our
happiness, and the want of whioh pre?
vents us from enjoying the.pr?sent hoar.
