The Columbus Daily Enquirer-Sun in refer ence to the telegraph service in that city thus complains: “On visiting Columbus and ob serving the live, active, goabead, progressive style which characterizes the city, would naturally suppose we have all that is needed in the way of telegraphic facilities, but in nothmg could they possibly be worse mistaken. Here we have a city with .0,000 inhabitants in a mil* of the office, and yet our facilities are but lit tle better than a country station on the rail road. The Western Union is the only office having a line here, and they seem to think they are perfectly secure In their monopoly. Complaints are made every day, and they are now getting to be so that they are almost unendurable. No matter what may happen, it is out of the ques tion to get off a message after 9 o’clock at night. There is only one operator in the office, and it requires his undivided lime to take the dispa'ches received by this paper. He is una ble to receive or send any private messages. Yesterday morning we received six dtspatches sent the night before, and which were intend ed for publication yesterday morning, but were worthless on account of not being received in time. This was on account of no one at the office to take them. Du-ing the convention in We t Point, dispatches sent to this office at 8 o’clock were received at 2 o’clock the nut morning, and dispatches sent here to be made press dispatches were received after fe press • lispatches were closed. This complainf is gen eral throughout the city, and if the Board of Trade can woi k a reformation in the matter, they will accomplish a great benefit to the city It is simply an outrage that the city should be compelled to submit to any such treatment.” Florida Affairs.

The first bale of this season’s cotton brought to Madison was raised by Mr. Hough Patterson and was ginned at Mr. Barrott’s mill on Thurs day . The bale sold at lIJ4 cents per pound. The Jacksonville Times states as a remarka ble fact that over one-half of the vegetables exposed for sale in that market last week came from the North. This includes cabbages, beets, onions, turnips and Irish potatoes.

On last Tuesday all tbe hands at work in the construction of the G. C. S. & Melrose Railroad were withdrawn, and for the present, at least, Messrs. Budington & Wil- on, the contractors, have suspended work. It appears that the Chester Construction Company, of Camden, N. J., who have undertaken to build aud equip the road, have not come to time with the money due to their contractors here, and hence Messrs Budington & Wilson were unable to proceed.” The Independent Convention which met at Madison Saturday nominated F. W. Pope for the Senate, and J. N. Stripling, T. A. Hall and A. B. Osgood for the Assembly. Mr. Pope has hitherto been a Democrat. Stripling a floater from one party to the other, Osgood is a col ored Republican, an ex Senator, and at pres ent United States mail agent. Hall, we algo think, an ex-Republiean office holder.

Sorrowing Tbronga In Waiting—Tbe Bogy Placed on tba special Train for Bolinzbrok- Tbe Arrange* menta Completed for tbe Funeral To-day. Atlanta, August 14 —The remains of Colonel Wadley arrived at noon, accom panied by Vice President W. G. Raoul, Colonel Virgil Powers, Colonel G, T. Raoul, Captain G. A. Whitehead, Mr. Wm. O. Wadley, Mrs. Wm. M. Wadley and Miss Eva Wadley. A large concourse of people, Including prominent citizens and leading railroad men, had assembled at the depot, and as the mnt&ed bell of the locomotive slowly tolled while the train moved through the throng, heads were uncovered and bowed in token of respect to the honored dead—a tribute that was repeated as the special train moved out of the depot bearing the remains away to Bollngbroke in advance of the regu lar passenger train. Mr. James 8. Armstrong, In charge of the deoot, had all the arrangements perfected for the sad occasion, and no delay took place In transferring the remains to the special train, consisting of three cars appro priately draped with mourning emblems both iDglde and out, and drawn by the loco motive Wm. M. Wadley, similarly draped. Captain R. J. Courtney, of Bavannab, and Conductor J. C. McLendon, of Atlanta, were in charge of the train. The pall bearers to transfer the remains were Major John W. Green, of the Georgia Railroad; Colonel Wm. Rogers, of the Cen tral Railroad; Dr E A. Flewellen, of the Columbus and Western Railroad; Captain G J. Fcreaere, of the Richmond and Dan ville Rsllroad; Major W. F. Shellraan, of the Macon and Western Railroad; Colonel J. E. Jones, of the Southwestern Railroad; Mr. W. 8 Brantly, of the Montgomery and Eufaula Railroad; Mr. Dave W. Appier, of the Port Royal Railroad, and Mr. A. J. Orme, of the Atlanta and West Point Railroad. Mr. Robert Schmidt, local ageot here of the Central Railroad, accompanied the train to Bollngbroke, having special supervision of all matters of safety and comfort. The remains were met here by Moses Wadley and wife, of Augusta,and LorlDg Wadley, Major Felix Oorput and a delega tion from Macon, who accompanied the be reaved ones to Bollngbroke. Mrs. A. B. Steele, a niece of Col. Wadley and a daughter of David Wadley, placed a most beautiful and fragrant pillow of flow ers upon the casket, and hundreds of clti zme passed through the funeral car to look upon this exquisite floral tribute. Mrs. Wadley and Capt. Raoul were deep ly touched by the general demonstration of sympathy on the part [of our citizens, espe cially the railroad men, whose sad faces to’d how near to their own hearts this great affliction bad come. A special train leaves here to-morrow for the funt ral, and will carry a large number of our citizens, In charge of Mr. David W. Appier, to participate in the services. The announcement of the sudden death o’ Colonel Wm M. Wadley created here the most profound sorrow, and the feel ing has deepened as lime for reflection has Intervened. No death in Georgia for y-ars past nas been more sincerely de plored, and the one universal verdict Is that the 8 ate has lost a citizen whose honesty and Integrity were above reproach. Especially has this express lon prevailed In railroad circles, where Colonel Wadley’s abilities and worth were o wel! known and so highly appreciated. Railroad men who have served under him for a score of years, and felt the force of his discipline as well as the kindness of his heart, testify with tearful sincerity to his nobleness of heart and Integrity of character. And this deep feeling of sorrow and re spect for the dead that hangs over our city like a pall, flnds a flt companion in the em blems of mourning that drape the union pisenger depot and Its Incoming and out going trains, and the freight depot, i n charge of Mr. Schmidt, and the city office of General Agent D. W. Appier, which Is elab orately and gracefully draped. There Is but one expression in regard to the vacancy caused by the death of Colonel Wadley. He was a pecullajly great man quiet and unobtrusive, yet strong and clear beaded in bis schemes and operations as a railroad manager. His methods were his own, his plans seldom known to the public until they were fully perfected and put jn operation. In all the ranks of living rail road magnates North, West and Bouth, there Is no one who possesses the qualities neces sary to enable him to fill the void created by the death of this great man.

In No. 1 mill the weavers were reduced to three In number, and at the Mastodon only two eplnners reported. In the latter a small gain in the number of weavers Is claimed. The strikers to-day re ceived from the Central Labor Union a promise of pecuniary aid, and in consequence are jubilant, The ostracism of the so called “scabs” is the strongest weapon of the strikers, and it Is enforced to the extreme The next movement on the part rf the mill managers Is awaited with Interest.

Pasha a rebel was reached, only after a protracted discussion between the Palace clique and t> < ministerial partv. The Grand Vizier and the Minister of Foreign Affairs insisted upon the necessity of the proclamation, and declared that war with England would be a terrible calamity for Turkey, because Russia was ready to march into Asia Minor and Austria to march on Salonlca. Arabl Pasha has been invited to lay down his arms, and until a repiy is received from him the proclamation will not become official,” The Constantinople correspondent of the Daily News says : “An important indication of the spirit which animates the Porte In sending troops to Egypt is found in the fact ibat twenty Christian medical men, who bad been appointed to accompany the Egyptian expedition and who had received pay and made every preparation for their departure, were stopped at the last moment aDd tbelr place were supplied by Mussul mans,” It is stated that half of the marines now stationed In Ireland will proceed to Egypt as soon as possible.

Constantinople, August 14 —A Mussul man jurist whom the Sultau frequently consults explains that Arabl Pasha, In so far as he disobeyed the Caliph, Is a rebel, and may be unceremoniously treated as ,such ; but Id so far as he has been a defender of a Mohammedan country against the ag gressive designs of Christians, he has merely fulfilled the duties of a good Mussul inar, and consequently the Caliph rannot make common cause with England. The Sultan may punish Arabl against him, but he must not associate him self with those who wish to crush Arab! as a defender of Islam. This will greatly in fluence Turkish milltarv action.

An Installment of Patboa— Lawyer Kar Denounced Tba Attorney- General Scored. Washington, August 14.—Judge Carpen ter opened the argument for the defense In the star route cases this morning, spewing particularly in behalf of his clients, 17 W. and 8. W. Dorsey. He premised his argu ment by congratulating the jury and his fellow counsel that the trial was drawing to a close. He spoke for a lovely, devoted and heart-stricken wife, for Innocent children, for a widow whose husband was taken from her through dls ease contracted In the service of his country, for her orphan children, for a sensitive, cul tivated, honest man, who had been traduced throughout the country In a manner in which no man’s character had ever been assailed before. He was not here to ask the jury for mercy. His Instructions from his client were to ask for justice Counsel for the prosecution bad told the jury that the public had passed judgment in this case, and It was the Jury’e duty to affirm that judgment. He had never before heard such a remark from counsel. He had supposed It was the duty of the lury to find a verdict In accordance with the facts, and notin accordance with public opinion. The speaker then criticised the action of the law officer of the government In abdi cating his position to admit special counsel (referring to Messrs. Ker and Merrick, and the action of the Attorney-General in par ticipating in the argument). He did not believe the Attorney General acted as a mouthpiece for the President, or that the latter was using all the power of his admin istration to crush these defendants with whom he had been on terms of social inti macy. He believed that the Attorney Gen eral spoke only for the Department of Jus tice, but he ought not to participate at all in such a trial as this. Judge Carpenter then took up the argu ment! of Mr. Ker, which he said was full of gross mlstatements, and he contended that there was not a scintilla of evidence to sustain the indictment for conspiracy. The evidence of Walsh, even if true, simply proyed extortion by Brady and not conspi racy. But It was not true, and he entered into an argument to show its improbability. At the conclusion of this branch of his ad dress the court adjourned. All the defend ants were present in court to-day except Brady. THE TURF. Yesterday’s Races at Saratoga.

Improvement! in (be Tcwu-Wliat (be Savannah, Florida and West ern Railway Is Doing—Prepara tions for Getting Out I.umber— minor Items. Waycross, Ga., August 12 —Editor Morning News: We are enjoying at present a very agreeable change in temperature, the average thermometer not exceeding 70 degrees. The rains in this section have been very plentiful. The grain crop will be much heavier than in any previous year, and the condition of the farmers will be vastly improved thereby. The improvements hereabouts continue, there be ing in process of construction at this writing a Baptist church, one twenty-room hotel, and several dwellings. The hotel is situated near the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway restaurant, and the company will soon com mence an addition of about 90 or 100 by 70 feet to their restaurant, to which this hotel wiU be a concomitant. These latter improvements have become necessary to supply the rapidly increasing demands of the traveling public, and with Mr. Svl B. Van Dyke as manager in chief, the company will doubtless reap a very handsome profit on the capital thus invested, and, in addition, have the appreciation of the public at large lor the timely consideration of their comfort.

Atlanta, Ga., August I*. 1832. Major O. M. SyaU, Havarmah, Oa.: Dxar Bih—l am in receipt of your letter of the 3d Inst, in which you request me not to run for a re-election to Congress, and aak me to receive your suggestion in the spirit in w hich it was made. Your expressions of friendly re gard for me are gratefully accepted, and not withstanding the close friendly relation you bear to one of my most active opponents for the position you ask me to relinquish, and in view of your friendly co-operation and services in the last campaign, I cheerfully accord to your motive in making the suggestion the friendly sincerity you ask for it. And, as you have written with great freedom, I hope you will allow me the same privilege in responding. You say that our commercial material interests “will require the services of a mem ber whose health wlil permit him to give active attention to the business in Congress." You are perhaps aware that the late session of the F'r ty-seventh Congress gave to the rivers and I ar bors of the First district—at least to the Bavan nah harbor—the largest amount that has ever been appropriated for that purpose. This was done upon bills Introduced by me, through the proper aid and assistance of the other mem oers of the Georgia delegation, the city of Savannah having given the necessary co-oper ation by the moral weight of the presence of a delegation, amongst whom was the official head of the city. I recommenced to the Mayor the importance of such a presence because I knew that other cities and communities, which have made successful application for Federal appropriations, have usually found it necessa ry to render such co-operation to their Repre sentatives in Congress. I made the suggestion likewise to other cities of my district, and urged upon prominent citi zens the importance of such a presentation of their claims. The commercial interests of the port of Savannah, at least, have suffered no detriment by any physical disqualification of her Representative in Congress. And if they have not done so in the past, permit me to ask, why should you be troubled by such grave apprehensions for the future? You sav that an active canvass of the district by the nomi nee should be made. That may be true and yet it may not be essential to Democratic suc cess that it should be made always in person, as you seem to think so specially Important at this particular juncture It has not been cus tomary or considered necessary heretofore for candidates in the First district to do all you would seem to require now, for although I canvassed it thoroughly and made one or more speeches in every county of my district, 1 was informed by people in some parts that none of my predecessors had ever b-fore done the like. Indeed, the success of the party depends, not so much upon the per sonal activity of the nominee, as upon the pa triotic sense of duty to themselves in the peo ple In off years from Presidential elections neither party ever polls its full vote. This is especially true of the dominant party, which, you know, Is at this time the Republican party. Some of the counties which I canvassed in the last campaign, in which but a bare handful of the citizens attended the speaking, and appa rent apathy prevailed, gave the fullest Demo cratic vote when the hour of duty and the day of the election arrived, showing that the result de pends, not so much upon the personal canvass ing by the nominee as It does upon the patriot ism and vigilance of the people lam satisfied that the Republican party can secure no greater campaign fund, or present no stronger candidate than it did in the last election, when it was defeated by the overwhelming majority of near 3,500 votes. That was a victory gained by the Democratic party through the patriotic efforts of the people more than through the activity of any candidate, and was accom plished at a time when the whole National Re publican party was aroused to the highest pitch of excitement in a Presidential campaign by a desperate effort to retain the spoils of their plunder and to perpetuate their usurped power. You may remember to have heard then the threat of Republican leaders that their national party had selected our district as an object of its special care, and that thou sands of dollars had been sent forward with which to accomplish the prostitution of Democratic virtue and the subversion of Democratic supremacy la the First con gressional district of Georgia. The urbanity, elegance, tact, and personal and business pop ularity of the Republican nominee were ad verted to then with an air of triumph, as an invincible element against which we would have to contend. Nor were we then without the Independent movement,threatening us with its balance of power,under the vigorous leader ship of one of its ablest champions in the dis trict. We were admonished then that the recant importation of turpentine and lumber labor ers had increased the colored voters of the dis trict by over three thousand. These circum stances were tufficien' to cause some weak kneed Democrats to quail with fear and ap prehension for the success of our party; but the result of the election showed that all true men, whether as organized or as independent Democrats, would rally to the standard of their party in the final day of action, and that they were unpurchaaed. and unpurchasable, by the corruption fund of the Radical party. For one, I entertain no fear as to the triumph of the Democratic party of our district in the coming election, whoever may be its nominee, or whatever may be the influences brought to bear to defeat it by fraud, argument or per suasion The prediction of a Republican vic tory in our district has been predicated upon the false assumption that every colored man was a Republican voter, and that there was a large majority of colored polls in the and strict; whereas, tne truth Is, that large numbers of colored men, true to themselves and to their country, vote with the Democratic party. ar.d the fact is that there does not exist a majority of colored polls,the last report of the Comptro ller General showing that there is, on the con trary. a majority of over two hundred white poll- in the First Congressional District of the State. There was a perioi in the progress of my illnes* when 1 hesitated to make a positive an nouncement of my candidacy for re-election, because there was reason then for doubts as to my physical qualification for the position. Many gentlemen amongst my friends who saw me during that time were no doubt honestly impressed with the conviction that I could never recover, one of whom, doubtless acting upon such an impression, was induced to an nounce himself a candidate for the nomination as my successor Circumstances have so far changed.and my health has so much Improved, that I now entertain no doubt but that I will be able r o discharge all the duties of a member of the Forty-eighth Congress. lam now. and have been for eeks past in the full db.charge of all the routine business appertaining to my office as a member of the Forty-seventh Con gress, and, with the exception of casting my vote upon the floor of the House of Representatives (and as to that I was for the most time paired with a Republican member) but a short interval of three or four weeks, during mv extreme ill ness, suspended their performance. Of course, men may differ, as they almost always do as to the acceptability, availability and the mental or physical qualification of candidates, and if I should not oe exempt from such criticism, I cannot, of course, be surprised. Under the peculiar circumstances of my own case much allowance, I know, should be made for the existence of such differences of opinio* as to my physical qualification, owing to the ground less rumors and false impressions that pre vailed. But whatever may be these differences, party unity and political success make it neces sary that a decision should be made, and it has always been the chief glory of the Democratic party that all of its members have bowed in loyal submission to the decision of its nominating conventions, honestly and fairly made, a time honored usage having given to these party decrees the sanc tion and potency of a law. Whatever I might be willing to do, and indeed, under certain cir cumstances would do, for the safety of the Democratic party, or for the salvation of the country. I cannot deem it either a personal or political duty to voluntarily retire from the field for the promotion of the interests of any particular individual. My present expectation is to permit my friends to present my name as a candidate for re-election to the nominat ing convention of September Rth, with the privilege of insisting upon its consideration, or of withdrawing it if at that Urns they should deem the public interest required, or the suc cess of the party demanded ft. As you wrote, not in confidence and without tbe injunction of privacy, upon a question involving the public announcement of my candicacy before the people I have exercised tbe privilege thereby implied, to make public my response, in order that my friends, and all other penons in the district interested in the issue, may be ap prised of the facts, and of mv Intentions m tbe premises. Hoping that my answer will satisfactorily meet your objections, and that my physical condition will ro much improve bv the 6th of next September, that I may be sole, consistently with your ideas of a candi ' to claim you as one of Decline of Man.

Tbs Dictator Slips Away to Xarops, lkt on Raising tbe Wind In Loa< dwb or Paris. .er \ blow he NewYork World of Saturday morn— SJ says# “President Barrios, Dictator of Gnat Tis, sails to-day for Europe, with his *° me of the unfortunate persons t >u constitute his suit, on hoard the steamer C eltic. A great mystery has been msde of - the Dictator’s departure, chiefly. It Is under stood, because General Barrios has bean un easy as to bit personal safety ever since he reached New York, on account of the pree ence here of sundry exiled Guatemalans who have personal wrongs ana outrages to settle with him. So great has been his alarm on this account that be has not ven tured out of the house since he cams back from Washington. The Dictator’s Intention Is to leave his young children here until his return from Europe, which is fixed now for the beginning of October. Hla oldest son by his first wife, Venenclo Barrios, re mains in Guatemala, where he is watching the depositaries of his father’s absolute power. Gen. Barrios bas been concocting, with the aid of his Minister to Mexico, Mr. Herrara, whom he summoned here shortly after his arrival, a scheme for the settlement of the vexed question with Mexico concern ing Chiapas and Soconusco. It Is most Im portant for Barrios to get this question set tled, if he possibly can, as he is bent on raising a loan either in London or Paris, and he can borrow no money if tbe shadow of a war with Mexico hangs over him. The failure of Mr. Logan, the late United States Minister to Central America, to get the pretty project carried out which Mr. Blaine adopted of negotiating a loan of $5,000,000 under an American guarantee based on the annexation of Central America has left General Barrios badly pinched. His wrath against Logan is tremendous He de nounces tbe late United States Minister In the most violent terms, and asserts that he paid Logan’s expense for coming to the United Btales anil bought hie furniture at a fabulous price solely in order to secure the great-annexation-guarantee-loan aforesaid. In his excitement the Dictator has been not only disagreeable, but dangerous for sever*’ days past. He hat, actually b -ate’q--oue of his officers with a stick since he came here, and tbe violence and indecency of his gen eral conduct may be inferred from the flat refusal of so quiet and philosophic a Central American statesman as Dr. Lorenzo Montufar any longer to put up with his insolence and brutality. It is probable that he will find England and Franc: no more tractable than the United States. The English have not forgotten how he -uffered an English Con ?ul, Mr. Magee, to be brutally bastinadoed by one of his creatures at San Jose de Guatemala, nor tbe French how he only last year protected certain ruffians of his force, who fell foul of the Secretary of the French Legation, M. Pilot. The total funded debt of Guatemala, chiefly held in England, la between seven and eight millions of dollars, Including the old debt contracted fifty year* ago, and now mainlv represented by Thomp son, Bonar & Cos., of London. It is the be lief of those who are In the confidence of Barrios that he expects to induce tbe holders of old Guatemala obligations to help him raise his new loan by offering them a hand some percentage on the operation. COMPRESSION A LCAMPAIHN COM MITTEES. Tbe Republican* Hard at Work— Democrat* Getting Ready. A special dispatch from Washington says: “The officers of the Republican Congres sional Committee report that a healthy inter est in the coming political struggle is show ing itself In every State and in nearly every Congressional district. The general demand for campaign documents is almost unprece dented at so early a time Tbe committee has already issued twenty documents, and of these nearly one million copies In all have been ordered printed. Last month alone nearly 200 000 copies were sent out, and from one Western State within the last few days has been received an order for SIO,OOO worth of documents. “Among The documents Issued are a number of speeches on the tariff, two or three on the financial record of the Repub lican party, and several on tbe Southern election frauds. The committee has also deemed it expedient and necessary to Issue as a campaign document the speech deliv ered by Representative Butterworth in Con gress * few weeks ago on the subject of appointments and removals by the Presi dent —a speech that was recognized as an authorized and official defense of the ad ministration. “Of course, much of the work of the Re publican committee thus far has been pre liminary—obtaining of specific Information In regard to every doubtful Congressional district, the causes of doubt or disaffection, the effect of tbe temperance movement, the personal standing of candidates, etc. The officers of the committee cay that never before has so great an amount of definite and trustworthy information been collected 60 early in tbe campaign, although this matter has never been neglected. “In regard to tbe work of the Democratic Congressional Committee, it is impossible to ascertain what, if anything, is being done, except the sending out of a good many speecheb. A correspondent who met Gene eral Rosecrans, Chairman of the Executive Committee, at tbe capitol to-day, asked him where the headquarters of the commit tee would be. ‘Here in Washington,’ was the reply. ‘We are sending out a good many documents from this building, but we have not yet really established ourselves.’ “ How soon will the committee be ready to begin an active esnva-s V “ ‘I think we shall have our work rounded up and in good condition by September I,’ was the reply.” safeing rotai 6 POWDER Absolutely Pure.
