ALEXANDRIA, EGYPT, July 13.-An
affray oooarred here, yesterday, between
G. H. Batler, United States Oonsul
General, and H. W. Wadleigb, his Sec?
retary, on the one part, and Generals
Loring, Reynolds and Major Campbell,
ex-Confederate offioers, in the Khedive's
service, on the other part; shots were
exohanged and Major Campbell was
wounded. Tho affair oreateB great ex?
citement, and there are various accounts
of its origin. Butler's plea, in justifica?
tion of the imbroglio, ia that the Khe?
dive's offioers made a premeditated at?
tempt to assassinate him; this the others
indignantly deny, and assort that Butler
was the aggressor.
NEW YORK, July 13.-A Berlin corres?

expressed himself disgusted not ouly

Moltke was present, the two great Gene?
rals scarcely did more than exchange
salutations. Sherman's meeting with
Frinoe Frederick Charles passed off in
about the same way. At Potsdam, Sher?

forenoon and described all its peculia?

1 o'clock, after whioh Greeley addressed
the meeting, consisting of about 500
people, and said it waa a social gather?

gregating for pleasure. There were
friends from home, from far and near,
and he wished they would frequently
visit him at his farm. The speaker then
described his sojourn at Ohappaqua for
the last twenty years, and said that in
spite of what the public at largo might
think of his farming capabilities, he
could inform them that he had lost
nothing. It was true, he spent some
money, BO had be lent, and the latter had
gone "where the woodbine twineth;"
whoreas the money he spent on his farm
was to some good-at all events, ho

DEATH OF GENERAL ST. JOHN SKINNER.
We are pained to notice by our Wash?

venerable gentleman. His record is one
full of honor, and he closes, at the good
old ?g? of seventy-five, an earthly pilgri?
mage, marked throughout by an un?
wearied and progressive walk in the
ways of rectitude, faithfulness and duty.
Tho deceased was born in Washington
County, New York, and did good service
in the war of 1812. Ardently attaohed

I propose, Messrs. Editors, to insti?

candidates for the Presidency.
Greeley is admitted to be a man of
troth, and one who has never deceived
his friends or foes. Grant was con?
victed of lying by the whole of President
Johnson's Cabinet! It is a matter of
record. In his explanation about ac?

have dishonored a private gentleman in

the war, and had to resign his commis?

Greeley has shown himself by his
speeches and writings to be a man of
talent and ability. Grant has never
written anything that evinced the least
ability, and be bas never been able to

he displayed no military genius what?
ever, and after sacrificing 120,000 men,
twice General Leu's whole force, be con?
quered only by an overwhelming force
still left under his command.
Greeley is in favor of the constitu
tional rights of the States being respect
ed, and will sacredly guard and proteo
them. Grant, throughout bis whoh
administration, has disregarded tin
rights of the Southern States, and tram

ence to Grant, who, up to tho war, was
a Demoorat and u pro-Hlavery man, vot?
ing for James Buchanan for President of
the United States. Should the colored
people now repudiate their old friend
Greeley, and take up Graut, the oppo?
nent of their emancipation, it will show,
says Judge Davis, that they are unlit to
exercise the right of suffrage. I am sure
they would not do so, but for the malign
influence of the carpetbaggers aud
office seekers, and office-holders.
B. F. PERKY.
AN ONSLAUGHT HY DADDY CAIN AT A
RADICAL CELEBRATION ON TOE FOURTH.
In the afternoon, the party returned to
the oourt house, where speeches were
made by tho same speakers, some of
whom we heard. That by Rev. Cain was
good, lu chaste and simple language
and a clear enunciation, he spoke to his
colored friends about "men and things"
which most directly concern them.
Sueh as hug and hominy, borne influ?
ences, unjust taxation, which is tapping
their vitals und retarding their prosperi?
ty, &c, the need of peuce and an era of
prosperity, in which both races will un?
derstand each other better, ?fcc, and es?
tablish that unity which shall not com?
promise either party, but eventuate in
good, comprehensive, liberal and eco?
nomically administered "government, of
the people, by the people, for the peo?
ple," who are sovereign, according to
the organic structure and genius of the
Constitution. He exposed the venality
of the rings, and aflirmed that he was
not a carpet-bagger, but a trunker; and
that he had come to stay, invest bis in?
terest here, and strive for tho common
weal. With reference to an economically
administered government, he stated that
ten mills on the dollar would be an ample
revenue of taxation to run the govern?
ment, pay the officials, meet the accruing
interest uud leave a surplus in the trea?
sury. Ho told tho colored people whole?
some truths about the legerdemain and
wheedling practioed upon them-the
sand throwu iuto their eyes, and the
wool that is pulled over by those who
use them as willing tools and dupes, ?fcc.
But he clinohed the nail that be drove
home, wheo he told them that they pay
the taxes-iudirectly, as might be seen.
To wit, that, although they do not pos?
sess lands and other taxable property,
they buy sugar and fiud the tax at the
bottom of their cups, in the bricks in
their bats, (whiskey being a great big
bill of taxation.) in their boots; from the
crown of their heads to the soles of their
feet, they are taxed, and they pay the
taxes, and are kept poor; aud this is
right, because they ure fools enough not
to see better and do better. Hesaid the
merchant would bo a consummate fool, if
be did not put the tax on them, to pay
the heavy tim] exorbitant direct tax
levied upon bis goods. That this was
business. He endorsed Gen. Grant, but
spoke kindly of Mr. Greeley, and closed
his remarks by urging his colored hear?
ers to remember that they were on trial,
and that they must be prudent in their
selection of custodians-not to take any
Tom, Dick, Harry or Bill's ipse dixil, biu
refer tu bis antecedents, aud learn as to
his general character, honesty, fitness,
capacity, ic, beforo giving him suffrage.
He puid a eulogium to bis race for their
confiding nature, and aflirmed that the
gory locks of an avenging Nemesis must
not bu shaken at his countrymen-that
they neither had money nor wit suffi?
cient to inaugurate au ern of venality.
A STRAW.-Oue of the very best si g us
of the times for Greeley, muy bo found
in the extraordinary and persistent efforts
used by the Grunt press to defeat his
nomination by the Baltimore Conven?
tion. They left no stone unturned to
prejudice the Southern Democracy
against him and drive them from his
support. His past record was raked over
for bitter partisan utterances, slanders
and lies were put into his mouth, and
even libelous pictures printed in order to
make him odious in the eyes of the
Southern people. Now, what does all
this mean? Why did the Grant men
wis li Greeley defeated at Baltimore? Is
it presumable that they would wish to
drive from the field a candidate whom
they believed they oould beat and risk
the nomination of a stronger man? Such
a conclusion would be absurd. The
plain English of it is, they wanted to
beat Greeley at Baltimore because they
knew full well that they could not beat
him anywhere else. It was their only
ohanoe to get rid of a foe who they knew
full well would thrash the little military
despot out of his boots. But they failed,
and now they may begin the work of
preparation for judgment day. It is
coming upon them. With whips of scor?
pions an indignant people will drive from
power into disgrace a faction that knows
no law except its own interest, that has
well nigh overturned the Government,
and by its tyranny and shameless cor?
ruption disgraced the American name.
They already seo the handwriting on tho
wall, and their fate is ns certain and
overwhelming ns that of the wicked
Babylonish King. Let them prepare to
meet it with whatever grace that guilt
oau command.-Savannah Republican.

tempt was made to effect the release of
Commissioner McLaughlin, yesterday,
by writ of habeas corpus, bot it did not
succeed, as Judge Graham refused to act
in the matter, alleging that he had no

DEATH OF JOHN D. BROWNE.-The
I deceased, who departed this life yester
I day, will be remembered for his long
1 connection with the City Cemetery,
having been its Superintendent for up?
wards of thirty years. He met with an
afiliction in the great fire of 1838, when
he lost his sight while engaged in en?
deavoring to stop the progress of the
Humes by blowing up buildings. In re?
cognition of his services, and' as some
compensation for what he suffered, the
different local administrations kept him
in the city's employ as public cemetery
keeper until the office was abolished by

resuming his line of march npon the
track. He proved to be deaf, and
seemed to look upon the affair as a com?

seemed to care, when questioned. The
