The Son I hern Republican Convention
From a Washington press dispatch
of the 10th int. we learn that a call
for a convention of lie publicans of the
reconstructed States, to be held at
Chattanooga, Tenn., on the loth of
October, is being widely signed by
prominent Republicans. The call
"All Republicans, whether of these
or other States, w ho w ill earnest seek
to maintain the principles on w hich
the Union was defended, to inaugurate
which in the South reconstruction was
begun, and who feel an interest in the
pn-servation of law and order and the
rights of citizenship, are invited to at
tend this consultation. All should
become iwssesscd of the facts as to the
true condition in their resjK'ctive local-
ities, so that an authoritative state -
inent may Ik? made to tiie country.
The Republicans oftheS.uth, equally
with good citizens of other sect ions, de
mand peace and s rurity, that pros
per it may follow. Why these are
not enjoyed by them should be mani
fested by this convention. If there
are those anywhere who doubt as to
the purposes or capacity of Southern j
Republicans, or w ho believe the ojv i
pressions umler which they are labor
ing have been magniiied, let them
come and see, and hear for them
selves." Condition of Hie Cotton Crop.
Washington, September 1 1. Sep
tember returns of the department of
agriculture show a very heavy decline
in the prospects of the cotton crop in
all the States except Virginia, where
it about holds its own. The State
averages are as follows: Virginia. ftS;

leading cause of the decline is tlie
