FOR STATE SENATOR,
W. D FULLTON,
of "Williamson County.
Yellow fever is scourging Savannah,
Cla. Thirty deaths in one day.
It is reported that Gen. Maney has
withdrawn lrom the race for Governor.
He says he is convinced he can do noth
'nig so long as Esq. Yardley, col., remains
onithe track, and thinks Yardley will
stick. He says the Republicans prom
ised him a solid support.
The Democratic Convention of New
York re-assembled Wednesday to nomi
nate a candidate for Governor, in place
of Horatio Seymour, who declined, and
nominated Lucian Robinson by acclama
rion. John Kelly resigned as Elector at
Large, and Seymour was substituted
This ensures the great fckate to the Dem
Whoever wants to read something that
will make his blood tingle and excite hi
!ira;n, let him peruse Pulitzer's speech
printed in our Supplement. It was de
livereil in the hottest campaign ever seen
in America in Indiana, and smites
Grantism and Mortonism "hip and thigh
There is not a waste word in all the long
speech, We dare any conscientious, pa
triotic man to vote for Hayes after read
ing Pulitzer's speech. Pulitzer is a great
or Gertnau than Schurz.
The Democrats of Giles had great difS
oulty in nominating a candidate for th
Legislature, A great many popular men
were voted for, Capt. John S. Wilkes, A
iSuford, Capt. John C. Lester, William
Rivers, and others. Three times Mr. E
T. Taliaferro's name was mentioned, but
he prevented its presentation. On th
l.'ith ballot, he received every vote in the
Convention 90. He thenaccepted.be
viiiiM it was evident that his party need1
od and demanded his services. We i
glad of it. The Legislature needs th
lest men we have. Mr. Taliaferro will
ho elected Speaker of the House, almost
without opposition, for ho will have no
peer as a presiding officer in that body
The recent outrages in the South show
who are to blame for the outrages in the
South, liecause some colored Democrat
wished to hold a meeting, they wore in
t .--rioted with by the black Radicals, who
denied determined that no colored man
hhall vote the Democratic ticket. The
white men went to the support of the col
ored 1 emocrats, and saw that they were
protected in the enjoyment of their rights,
They were attacked by the Radical ne'
sroert, aud merely defended themselves
The cause of all the disturbances
in the Southern States is the de
termination of the Radical negroes
under the teaching of their white leaders,
to prevent men of their own color from
acting as tree ""ften, and voting as they
think right. We want our friends at the
North to understand the true situation
of nllnirs. We ask our political friends
in tbo Southern States to be cautious in
:i!l movements, and not permit them'
,-iIvcs to he irritated aud driven into
lil!iiuUies if it be possible to avoid them
Hut we owe it to the colored men who de'
sire to vote (he JJemocratic ticket to see
that they arc protectod lrom violence,
The intimidation in the South is on the
jart of Radical negroes towards colored
Democrat?, and this should bo avoided
Tho Gubernatorial Canvass Openel
l he gubernatorial canvass was corns
niericed on Monday last, between Gov
.1.1). Porter, Col. 1. 13. Thomas, W. F
Yardley, Ksq , col., and Gen. Geo,
Maney. Gov. Porter opened the discus-
tsiuw with an ablo and elaborate speech
reviewing his administration and showing
the inconsistencies of his Democratic (so1
culled) opponent, D. IJ. Thomas. Gov.
Porter presented a gratifying exhibit of
the expenses of our Stato Government
since he Las been Governor.. The whole
some laws passed by our last Legislature
were referred to in complimentary terras.
Railroads are now taxed and bring
into the State Treasury $69,611,10, which
nil! be increased each year as their busi
m-ss increases. Tbe office of tax col
let ter was abolished, and the Trustees
of the various counties now collect the
taxes. This paves ffK'O to Davidson
county alone, and to the otber counties
in 'he same proportion. Jail fees are
tiuecd lrom sixty cents to forty cents
a day for feeding prisoners, which amounts
ed to a saving in 8 months of $26,460 to
the State, and a like sum to the counties.
The pay of jurors is reduced to f 1.60
per d.iy, aud the pay of justices attend,
ing Quarterly Courts was reduced to
$1.50 per day, and the number of justices
in attendance was reduced to one-fca!f,
thus saving to the tax-payers of the State
S:5i,000. The pay of the State Librarian
was reduced from $12,500 to $500 per an
num. The State penitentiary is no
charge upon our State, whilst in
Ohio it costs $239,000, and in Massachn.
vetts $:2S,G00 per annum.
The Legislative expenses in the last
1w years were S4,7:4, whilst they were
I ,0-- for ooe session of the Legislature
nut i t three when iorsf y a. i nomas was
J 'resident of the Senate. Gov. Forter
ives good and sufficient reasons why he
li.l iit-t J?ase the penitentiary. , He
ti.ii.ks soma radical changes should to
made so tin to prevent the competition of
tho convicts with tho labor of the honc6t
mechanics and laboring men of the
Siate. He shows the great boneits
which have resulted from the establish-
meat of the bureau of agriculture and of
mines; more than a million of dollars
having been invested through its influ
ence in the mineral lands of the State.
His remarks about immigration though
Wmf urntf. thn rjoint and very forcible.
He fully endorsee the State platform in its
full meaning. He avows himself oppos
ed to an increase tf taxation, but plainly
implies that he is in favor of a contin
uance of the present rate. He has paid
a borrowed money account of $665,000,
and a warrant account of $283,290 which
daily accumulating. After having
paid these sums, and the current expens
es of the State Government, he has paid
the unpaid coupons of July, 1874, ot Jan.
1875, and the coupons of July 1875, as
the law required him to do. After giving
this gratifying account of his administra
tion he rave a scathinir review of the
record of his competitor, D. B. Thomas.
He showed that he yoted to allow rail
road companies to buy BrownlowJ bonds
at a depreciated rate, and pay them into
th Slate at full value: that he voted for
eighty cents tax; that he voted
to exempt the property ot ncn
corporations from execution, and voted
against allowing mechanics to have $250
of material from execution.and also voted
against allowing thn laborer $100 free
from garnishment. He now pretends to
be thfi friend of the poor. man. Mr. Tho
mas bad voted for a resolution pledging
the entire available resources and reve
nueB of the State to the payment of the
nterest and principal of the State debt.
What Gov, Porter had to say about Mr,
Thomas' course during the war, and
about his receiving money as a Contest
ant for a seat in Congress, we omit, be
cause we think there is enough against
him without 'these to ruin him, and we
doubt the propriety of bringing them up
against him, After disposing of Thomas ,
he demolished Gen. Geo. Maney, with
one or two blows. He had very little to
say about Yardley. The replies of Thorn
as and Maney amounted to nothing, and
we have not the space to notice them all
Take Gov, Porter's speech all in all.it was
a decided success: he showed himself so
far superior to any and all of his coin pet
itors, that it will be no race at all. Their
candidacy against mm appears like a
farce. Neither Democrats nor Republic
cans will support Thomas, and the sooner
he goes home to Humphreys County the
better for him and his reputation.
THE COTTON CSO?.
AdviMS from tie Cotton Growing States
An Estimate 01 tne xieia
The following crop report, compiled by
Messrs. Hanger, t atman (Jo., cotton
merchants of New Orleans, will be found
of interest to dealers in the staple.
The following questions we have ad
dressed to our correspondents in the

in your section since the first of August?
How does it compare with last year?
2. What is the condition of the crop,
and how do stands compare with last
3. State any tavorable or unfavorable
circumstances which may have occurred
since your last report.
4. Have you heard of any worms; if
so, what damage?
5. Has picking commenced in your

14th, since then hot, and weather more
favorable than last year. .Local storms
reported from the southeast with little or
no dammage. West Tennessee reports
condition fully as good as last year.
East Tennessee better. Shedding of
weed reported from three sections, rust
from one section, and several counties

the present moment. A. lew scattering
counties have commenced picking, but it
will not be general until the 10th.
Mississippi. Most of our reports ad
vise weather more tavorable than the

AlabamavMost of our correspondents
in the Houth and central of this Btate
complain of too much rain during August,
followed by extreme heat. With the exi
ception of eleven counties that report
stands worse than last year pn account
of worms, which seem to have done con
siderable damage, the general condition
ot the balance of our reports point to as
being as good as last year, and a few
better. Picking will bo general by the 1st
of September. Cotton opening fast.
Georgia Weather with the exception
of about eight or ten rainy days, has been
