FEIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER
For this section colder, fair weather, fresh to
brisk northerly winds.
Tue Legislative Candidate?it is an!
open secret that thero exists in the ranks of
the democratic party in this city a very I
wide dillerencc of opinion reference to
who shall be the candidate for the House of
Delegates, and that there is also a good i
deal of latent feeiing involved, personal an
imoeity occasionally cropping out. The
knowledge of this state of affairs has in?
duced some members of the party in the
county to tender their services, and of?
fer as a solution of the contem?
plated troub'e.a couuty man as a candidate,
claiming that the county is entitled to direct
representation and urging tbat in selecting
a candidate from the rural district no fac
tiotH opposition could b:- made and that the
friends of the various aspirants in tho city
could all combine and secure the election of
a democrat. With this end in view a
committee from the county was in the
city yesterday and had an inter
view with several of the city com
mitee, Mr. Barbour and others, and talked
the matter over, Mr. Barl-.our acquiescing in
the views expressed by tho county rnen that
something must be (lone to heal tho breach
in tbe party in the city or that tho "jig
was up." It is understood that auotbsr con?
ference will be held next weak, at which it
is expected something or something else will
be done, but whatever it is, it should bo
quickly done or there may be trouble.

MONETARY AML1 COMMERCIAL.
1 i.o continued depression in business and tho
inci casing scarcity of money in tho country, out?
side of tho "centres," is tho absorbing topic in
financial and commercial circles, and various are
tho devices suggested to solvo tho difficulty. It
is contended by some that the present stringency
is artificially created to induce tho Government
to increaso tho prico of the bonds to ho recalled.
On tho other hand, tho situation is not believed to
ho as serious as it is represented ; but nevertheless
tho President is prepared to meet any emergency
that niay arise. The Baltimore Sun of to-day 8ays:
"The curront balances arc in most cases against
the local banks, which is rather remarkable in
view of tho constant talk of tho scarcity of money
in New York." ?. S. bonds aro firm. Virginia
3s were offered yesterday at 03^. Cousol cou?
pons fnndable at par are wanted at 6(>. The 50
por cent, issues aro offered at 33, aud the non

dealings, but soon subsided into dullness. There
was a momentary heaviness, but prices scon began
to rise aud before 10:30 most stocks had gained
small fractions. Tho market thereafter was de?
void of feature, though prices wcro woll maintain?
