MILIIKEN. 4th Disibict—HENRY 0. PERRY. 5:h District— EBENEZER KNOWLTON. A Dough-Fare The Democratic candidate lor the Presi dency is said to be a respectable citizen. He is a member of the Episcopal church, and we notice his name among the Delegates to the Triennial Convention about to be held in New York city. Whether be is High Church or Low Church, we have not learned, but can safely say, that he can be trusted to suit his views to the circumstances of his position. As for his fighting it out on any particular ‘•line” he may have marked out for himself, one may venture to giwe a judgment such as Capt. Cuttle gave ol the weather: he may or he may not. His nomination by tlie New York convention was received by him as “terrible,'’ because he liad pledged liis bon^r to Mr. Chase's friends, not to accept it if ten dered. He yielded, however, because he was too teeble to resist. So,before his nomination, it wasweli understood ;hat he was opposed to paying the United States Bonds in new prom ises to pay in the shape of greenbacks; but. anon we find him tlis very head and front ol repudiators. We intend sometime to quote at length tri m his public speeches, to show what he thought on this subject before he under went manipulation. We could find no better argument lor fulfilling the promises of the government “according to their tetter and spirit,” than this figure-head of the repudia tors himself used when Governor of New York ;n reference to the bonds of that State: “when we sought,” he said, “the market of the world with our securities, we pledged our selves to redeem them iu the currency of the world. The saviDg proposed by nol paying coin is small and temporary, while the dis honor is lasting, and the pecuniary loss con sequ' nt upon this dishonor will be in the end enormous.” General Dix, our minister at Paris, whose letter we published lately, speaks of his ‘ making public speeches to show that it is our duty to pay the debt in specie.” So, again, Mr. Seymour manifested during the war as Governor of New York, so strong a disposition to aid the government in the re bellion, that he received special commenda tion from good Mr. Lincoln about it; and yet, as General Dix declares, he was actually “do ing all in his power to embarrass ar.d destroy” the very government he was proposing to help. This same General Dix knows Mr. Seymour well. He commanded the United States forces during the memorable riots in New York city the 4th of July, 1863, and knows what the calibre of the ex-Govemor was and is. “He is an amiable gentleman,” the General says, “of unexceptional character and respectable talents, but you know as well as I. that he has not a single qualification for the successlul execution ot the high official trust to which he has been nominated, and he is especially deficient in that firmness of purpose which in critical exigencies is the only safeguard against public dishonor and calamity.” Now, looking simply to this infirmity of purpose, which seems so salient a trait in Mr. Seymour's character, what sort of a man is he to put at the bead ot an administration, to be controlled by the men that managed the late New York Convention? Why! The northern Democrats do not dare to have even the “iqost moderate” of them come North to speak to the people on the issues of the com ing election! See what the Augusta, Geor gia, Constitutionalist says about it! “A dis tinguished western Democrat has sent word to this city that even our most moderate men would be powerless for good iu the East or West. Since we placed ourselves under the lead of our northern Ipiends, we should, at least, treat their counsel with respect ml con sideration.” Indeed! So during this very delightful courtship that is going on between the two portions of IJie Seymour party, soon 1o he happily united, the southern wing is to be placed “under the lead of our northern friends;” but,the uuion perfected and the mar riage consummated, these Seymourites will not so much as show their submissive heads, unless it may he to lap from the public dish such allowance as the Blairs and the Toombs and the Hills and the Wade Hamptons may condescend to make them. We do know of a better dough-face these worthies could have selected to place at the head of a jparty made up of southern llebels and their north ern sympathisers, than ex-Governor Sey mour of New York. No More Massacre*after itrnat Elected. Tits full ilstails of the affair at Camilla, Ga., on the 19th in.it., given in the official reports of the Freedinen’s Bureau, and in the accounts ot reliable newspaper correspondents, place that engagement as p.operly in the list of mas sacres as the St. Bartholomew slaughter of Protestants. The Rebels attacked liie negroes when unarmed, at a political meeting at Amer icas a few days before the Camilla butchery. At Camilla, the ex-rebels collected iu large numbers Irotn the adjoining towns, lay in am bush tor the uegro procession, tired is Ur the uegro ranks without tho slightest provocation’ and alter causing a stampede kept up the pur suit for several days with horses and blood hi.unds. Only five whites wore wounded, while three times that number of uegroes were killed. The whole affair is not at all be hiud the New Orleaus massacre iu cold-blood ed, preconcerted atrocity. The riot at Nash tille and the serious disturbance at New Or leans are relcrabie to the same old spirit that fired the Southern heart in 1851. The Ameri can people will not long endure with calmness such outrages as that at Camilla, and they will await with impatience the time when Grant’s election alone, without any exercise ot the au thority with which he will he clothed, will bring to a speedy end these ou-.burs:s of bar ! barons violence. What Grant will do, « hen he is President, is authoritatively foreshadows 1 in the iollowing extract from the spsech of Speaker Colfax before the Union League Club Oi New York City last week: We have but one motto in this contest, but one watchword upon our banner—and it is that “Loyalty shall govern what loyalty pre served.” (Applause.) Remember, tm friends, as illustrating the spirit of the rehellien, the invective that was poured upon the head of the lamented Lincoln immediately after the close of the war. Yet. notwithstanding, when the battle was over, the loyal spirit that won the bmcitle, strong at the ballot with the strengibiol war, wrote “Liberty” upon its ban ners, and inspired with the same patriotism and devotion, went on in its conquests from victory to victory, overwhelming opposition, and gaining U'-w uouor and new glory. Where .'“Liberty” was inscribed, we have now written the nobler motto—“Loyalty and justice to all who maintained the Union.” We who wage i this contest desire no proscription, no persecu tion, not one word of wrath, uot one act of vengeance. We merelv want thisUuion to be ruled by the men who have shown devotion to the Uniou. We want no war, we waut no blood, we want no poverty, we want no desola tion, we want no draft, we want peace (great applause), and only peace; peace in the North and in the South, peace iu the East and m the West, peace in the White House, and no more eudless sessions of Congress in expectation or Presidential violence (applause); peace be twe. n Congress aud the executive, peace »U over the land, to all the dwellers of the land, betwten the Atlantic and the Pacific, with peace extending its glorious vista, bringing with it stability, and with stability prosperity, aud with prosperity progress, aud with prog ress peace. (Applause) Gentlemen, I say to you, and I feel that 1 am invading no confi dence in doing so, that I have it from the bps of our chief, that when elected President— for I feel that it lias been decreed that he will be Presi dent (applause) no matter what his adminis tration may produce, above all things else— we shall have the strong arm of the executive, representing the will and mujesty of a miqhty people, declaring and insuring to every citizen, black or white, rich or potrr, be he humble or ex alted, the safeguard of the nation, and protect ing him from every wrong with the shield of our national strength. (Great applause.) He will use American power for the protection of the American people—to protect the American people in the savannahs ot the South, as well as the prairies of the West, whether he stands by the Atlantic that surges along the < astern coasts, or by the Atlantic that surrounds the foreign countries of Europe, so that he may feel, as to American citizenship, as Paul felt even amid his enemies, that none may lay a finger upon him, for he was a Roman citizen. (Great applause.) Then we shall have uo more war, no more dishonor, no more differen ces between the administration and the repre sentatives of the country. Every dweller in ihe land will be protected—under his own vine and his own fig-tree with uo traitor or enemy to molest or make him afraid—the national honor will be defended, the national failb ob served, ihe laws of the land will be obeyed, aud from these swiftly coming days of peace, our posterity, blessed by our labors, and rich with all that we have sacrificed, will realize the most magnificent luture that ever opened to a people, aud a destiny eclipsing in its grandeur, its happiness, its public prosperity and private virtues, ail that we find written in the records of the past. (Great applause.) Tall Writing.—The Memphis Avalanche, which the New York Post aptly calls the “mod volcano,” has the following florid piece of com position, all in relation to a man named Ham ilton: Thomas A. Hamilton, the sugar thief, the white-livered perjurer, and the apostate to the Coufederate cause, bar returned to the unfor tunate city which ho curses by his loathsome habitation. He is more pestiferous than the lice aud locusts ol Egypt, than siroccos, tem pests, hurricanes ami whirlwinds. Small pox, yollow fever, phthisic, rheumatism and gout are all bad enough, but they are bleasings in comparison with the leprous scourge called Hamilton. As no grass ever grew where the feet of the renowned Huns trod the earth, so does the rich carpet that sods the green fields wither and crisp under'be blighting trend of Hamilton’s cloven hoofs. When he enters a garden the full-blown flowers all turn to touch-me-nots, and hang their heads in mod est blushes of shame. The birus hush their matin songs at his approach, and fly away as if some evil genius had poisoDed their fragrant bowers. The dogs bark at him with a kind of melancholy howl, and wh-n he approaches n barn-yard the chickens crow in a long, mourn ful drawl. V nineties. —It, is well said by Mr. George William Cur tis, in his address we quoted yesterday, that if the South bad triumphed in the late war Rob ert Toomos would have fulfilled bis threat of calliog the roll ot bis slaves on Bunker Hill; aud since we have conquered we will cnll the roll of freedom on Robert Toombs’s planta tion. —John Allen doesn t exhort as much as he d'd, nor does he fulfil his promise *o “run lighter on rum and seek religion at odd timet.” —The principal Spanish organ in New York city takes offence at the severe things said in this country about Queen Isabella. If there were any secret about the wickedness and treachery of Isabella, or it her morals affected her private relations alone, there might be jus tice in complaining of these criticisms. But as her debaucheries are matters of tbe greatest notoriety all over Spain, and the doubts bang ing over tbe legitimacy of her children are grounds of public quarrel concerning tbe suc cession to the throne, it would seem to be hardly possible to ignore ber peculiarities. —A Canadian County Agricultural Society offers two premiums, of $12 and $8, to boys for the best essays ol practical larmiug.

A.P. Marble, Esq., a graduate of Waterville College, and formerly a successful teacher in Waterville, has been chosen Superintendent of the public schools of Worcester, Mass. —The International Workmen’s Congress at Brussels was closed, Sept. 13, by a speech from President Dupont, ot London. An address from the German branches was read, wbieh declares, among other things, that a war be tween France and Germany must be regarded I as a civil war, for the profit of Russia. It con cludes as follows: “The International Associa tion calls upon workirgmen to pronounce against war, to oppose it by all the means in their power, to refuse to countenance assassin ation, and to organize a Propaganda for the education of the poor." The delegates assem bled in executive session, and adopted the fol lowing resolution: “The International Work men's Congress recommeuda workingmen to abstain irom all work in the event of war breaking out to their respective countries. The Congress reckons upon the solidarity of workingmen of all countries for this strike of the people against war.” —In New York, the other day, n burglar was sent to tbe State Prison who had already passed tweDty-three years in that establish ment. The sad ieature ot the matter, howev er, was that the prisoner bad frequently es sayed to reform, but had been invariably hounded out of tiis honest employment by de tectives, who gave information about his past career, costing him bis situatfop. The truth of this statement cannot be questioned, and the fact is a disgrace to the detective police. —Near Green River City, on the Central Pacific Railroad, a pile ot quarried stone re cently ignited spontaneously, aDd at last ac counts was still burning. It is apparently tsan stone, saturated with petroleum. —A lively game of base bawl waa played here the other day, by a small boy—occasioned by his toad parent mi-placing a switch.
