'. Hie question Is often Raked whioh in
the "best".- day to attend . the Fair
which begins October 7th, at ourTfltr
Grounds. , By examining thq iire
mium lHi it will be Been that each
day has attractions.' Koto thla re
mtnei "' ' '
1st, day Flowers, ''frusta, ladies'
work, garden, wino, . culinary . art,
domestic manufactures, saddle horses,
boy riding, tobacco, hogu, Bheep, agr).
cultural Implements, marble and
cooper work. The whole family will I
enjoy this dny. Every lady and nil
the sweethearts will be out, and nil
the lovers of ladies and fine stock and
all the furmcrs will be much interest
ed by the first day's exhibition The
fifty dollars for the best saddlo animal
will bring out all tlio horses and good
riders. A very full attendunce for the
first day, we predict
2d day Cattle, utility horses, Jacks,
fine arts, vehicles, leather, Iron, har
ness, horsemanship, lady riding,
worst turn out under saddle. This,
day will, of course, draw out all who
went the first day and others.
The 3d day brings out thoroughbred
horses, which every body desires to
see, mulos, trotting In harness, slow
est mule, and best trained horse.
What lover of finestock, graceful and
skillful riding or driving can full to at
tend to this opportunity?
4th day Harness stock, trotting
and pacing, match horses, and bur
lesque vehicle. This, of course, will
afford splendid recreation, and will
bring a large attendance.
Many answers will bo made by
many minds as to which is the best
day but one opinion Is that each la
good, and we advise you to go every
day and decide for yourself. You can
afford to give five or ten dollars to
keep up this place of improvement
and recreation and not to help out
this pure and delightful means of de
veloping our resources, would be
churlish and short-sighted policy, or
no policy at all. This Is far fcetter
than whisky, Black Crooks, "and all
that sort of thing, you know."
The following circular has been ad
dressed by Charles W. Fitzhugh to
the colored people. He was one of
tho most intelligent, and probably
the best educated of the colored mem
bers of tho lute so-called Convention,
and one of the most ardent supporters
of the Radical party in the body. Ills
influence over the colored members
was greater, probably than that of
tytlea member. Tn Wnrrl nfnn.
via clonucncc he sends out this note
of warning to his brethren. May we
not aU tits cobircd people to 'give it
their calm attention l '
Wooovii.i.k, Miss., July 11, 180H.
Fellow Colored CIUeoiis of Wilkinson :
.The time has come when our race
must lie saveil. All election was held
in this (Suite to vote on a Constitution,
tliut was framed by the Convention,
held In Jackson, commencing Janu
ary 7, 1808; that Const itution was de
feated by a largo majority. ny I
.because it was tyrannical, overbear
ing, and ruinous to tlie Htute and cit
izens thereof. The colored voters of
this Htnte noted wisely and justly lu
voting airuinst It.
The question presents itself to us
who ii'ainedtuatt;oiiNtitution7 was
it men who had tho Interest of the
State at heart? No! but men who
came from the North, as adventurers,
to monoioii.e tlio onices, and distress
tlio peaceable citizens, unit would
not fuller such to bo done ! He used
His Almljrhty power, and slew those
who tried to devour us I and to-day
our (state Is saved!
Now, fellow-citizens, you are living
in tho Houthl lour interest Is at
stake in the South! My motto, for
the people to prosper In a Stale, is for
all to live peaceably together! You
are living among the Southern poo
pie; you navo been raised up among
them ! Although they held you in
slavery forget every tiling of that
kind! i At tlio past bethepust! Come
under the protecting wius ot your
oniy aim nest menus I i Ley mveyoll
anil study your Interest I You arc a
poor people. Come ! and your starv
ing children shall 1 fed !
The Uiuliiyils have made you great
promises such as "comu with us, and
wo will do you good." What good
have they done you? Havo they
given you the homes that they prom-
led l nave tney led your children?
Have they given you uuv thing?
NO ? but they have caused you to suf
fer hunger uud want.
Now, saveyourselves! Coino with
us and let us live peaceably together!

In a speech of Sand ford li. Church,
delivered in Schuyler county, New

tribute was paid to the Hfo and char- ubeo county, Mississippi : (

Mr. Church I have known Gov-'for It Is all In the worm. Hand hills

of this Htnte. I ran with him twice
UP"11 the same ticket since t hat time,
and we Were both at ono of those
elections chosen. I have been associ
ated with him in tlie administration
of the State government, nnd I have
known him well In every position
that he has occupied since that time.
And now while it is truo that Gover
nor Seymour lias been a candidate for
office at times of great political ex
citement, when the; passions of men
were greatly aroused, and unkind
things were said of him, yet, 1 ven
ture to say, with as much personal
knowledge as any ono I think In the
.State, that no aekof his life can he

gentleman. Loud cheers. He has
made the science of government his
study throughout his life. Nolxnly
disputes that his private life Is entire
ly pure and spotless. Nobody dis
putes that he has discharged faithfully
and honestly every trust. Who, then.
Is there more competent, In this broad
land, to bring us back to tho Govern
ment of our fathers, and to a condi
tion of prosperity, than Horatio Hey
mour? Loud applause. That is
ray opinion, and I entertain it hon
estly. I entertain it without the
slightest feeling of ill-will to General
Grant; on the contrary, I will take
every orcassion to lo tlie tullost jus
tice to him for all his services to the
country. But it is generally believed
that he ought to bo satisfied with his
present position. He holds his place
for llfo, ami I think tho American
people are going to elect both Seymour
and Grant Heymour as President
and Grant as General of the Arm v.
Loud and vociferous cheers. 'iMiat
is the fair thing. It does justice to
botli or tncra. and it will restore the
The Proapvcfa or the Campaign.
The Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot says:
The scenes of 1844 are being re-en
acted everywhere. Tho old enthusi
asm and determination to win have
reinspircd the Democratic masses.
Hickory poles, the fusion in Jackson's
and Tulk's times, are the style every
where." In 1844 Pennsylvania went
for Polk against Clay by a majority
of something over 6000.
Tho New York Hound Table is an
able literary Journal, with Republi
can tendencies. After the nomina
tion nf Governor Revmour
M ,U L W. . - .... .'.-
gust 22d it takes it back. That paper
now says : .
"Did we Judge merely from indica
tions on the surface, this conviction
might remain unchanged. Wehave,
however, lieeome pursuaded there is
a powerful undercurrent of popular
dissatisfaction with Radical rule and
Radical measures which Is paining
rather than losing strengtn with pas
sage of time, ond thnt, consequently,
the cnanees, wmen at present, we es
timate as nearly even, may incline in
Novcmlwr, in a victorious degree, to
the Democratic side. From
present Indications' however, we are
led to lielleve that tho three great
States of NeK York, Pennsylvania
and Ohio will throw themselves Into
tlie scale for Seymour and Blair; and,
should they do so, not all the hosts of
New England, backed as they may
lie by the West and South, by voters
black or white, constitutional or un-
cmistitntlcinnl. will avail to nrevent
the Republican forces from kicking
Tho great Radical leader, Thad,
Stevens, mado good provision, by his
last will and testament, for his colored
paramour. As he had separated her
from her husband, contrary to Divine
command, he took her to himself,
and, on his death-bed, remembered
her. One clause of tho will reads :
"I elve to Mrs. I.ydia Smith, my
house-keeper, five hundred doll aw a
year during her natural life, to be
paid semi-annually, or at her option,
she ma v receive five thousand dollars.
She may mako her election, and
then release all further claims tin my
estate. Mi's. Smith has aomo furni
ture of her own, used In common with
mine, sniiie isiught with her own
money, as well as others, which ii
would lie difficult to distinguish.
Now, she must lie trusted on her hon
or to take such us she claims, without
Mrs. Smith may oecu-
tho house the first year, and If
I lluuldues, son. of Morriir, prefers to
keep house to Ixiarding, ho may keep
house thero with her, or witu any
ono else, (lin ing tho three years or
any part thereor."
That was Just to his dusky iiiUI ress;
but what of tho husband from whom
he took her ?
Here is a Radical speech In the
"trooly loil" diiilect. It was delivered
by a negro culling himself the Repre

Gov. Brownlow admit that half

In the Tennessee National Bank at

shows that during the two fiscal years
ending the 8oth of (September,. 1807;
there was collected in the shape of

is a fund of $1,037,000 for common

to the expenses of the State govern-

thus that the taxes of the people are
increased. More than a million of
dollars has been collected from them
to support common schools, yet tho

near to listen. One rainy day as
quite a number wero seated around
tho stove, ho began as usual, to tell of
his great bargains, and at hist wound
up with the expression :
"Nobody has ever cheated me, nor
they can't neither."
"Judge," said an old man of the
company "l'vo cheated yon more
than you ever did me."
"How so?" said the Judge.
"if you will promise yon won't go

you; or else 1 won't; you're too much
