It The Times' Washington special says Robert Ridge, way, of tbe Richmond Whig, John S. Barbour, President of (he Orange and Alexandria Railroad, to day announced themselves candidates for Congress from Virginia. Since August 1st there have been mus tered out of the service sixty regiments and batteries, including an aggregate of over 20,000 men. The receipts of interna) revenue to day amounted to 9130,699.609. The railroads iu Virginia are rapidly approaching completion, and will shortly all be in running order. The ears will run to Lynchburg from Alexandria on Monday, and the Richmond and Aequta Week roads will connect at Fredericks burg In a few dart, thus doing away with the present staging of ten tulles. Steps arc being taken to reopen at once tbe Manassas Gap roid to Front Royal and Sirasbdrg. The unfinished London and Hampshire road will be poshed to com pletion at an early day. Tbe Herald's special says : Mr. Greer ot the original South Carolina dele-ga lion, is . in tbe city, and reports RfTmrs progressing in that State to the atisfac lion of all. Gov. Perry has been well received by the people of thai State. Mr. Greer knew nothing of the collision between tbe civil and military authorities until he read it in a Radical paper in the North He pronounced it a fraud throughout. Brig. Gen J. S. Follerlon, of the Freed men's Bureau, returned to this city last evening from a tour of observation in Eastern Florida and Central ueorgia. Tbe trip occupied about four weeks, and was productive of much and valuable in sight lo the operation of the eylem adopt ed by the Bureau for tbe development of the rrecdmen. From a close observe 'ion ihrougout the States nlluded to, Gen F. is inclined to believe that the number of whites and blscks receiving; rations are about equal. The railroads and other facilities for travel in Florida and Georgia, and in passing through the country there is no danger whatever to be apprehended. The cereal crops of those States are represented to be looking promisingly and so abundant as to put all fears of scarcity of breadstuff iu those States at rest. Detroit, Aug. IS.

The Minnesota Democratic Convention nominated Henry M. Rice for Governor, and adopted resolutions sustaining the President's restoration policy. Tbe Pittsburg Conference of the Meth odist Protestant Church has spoken on tbe subject of the negro. It unanimous ly passed a resolution in favor of "re storing the Government of our country on just principles to all parties, colored and white, giving suffrage to Hi." There are between four and five thous and negroes eongregrated at Columbus, Ky., and they draw their rations regular ly from Uncle Sam. The first contested election case in Kentucky slowing out of the interference by tbe military at the polls, was decided in the Campbell county court on the I3ih instant. The Radical candidate, Jones, clerk of tbe Court, was ousted, and the office was declared vacant. Quite an interesting state of affairs is at present existing in Kentucky. Gen. Palmer ordered all his subordinate of ficers throughout the State to be present at tbe polls on election day and prevent Democrats from voting. Those officers are now being indicted in almost every county, and when Ibey appeal to General Palmer for relief be coolly informs them that he knows nothing about it. Much in dignation against tbe General is the conse quence. Tbe question of negro suffrage is to be submitted to tbe people of Connecticut, at (be October election. In 1847 the question of admitting the negioes to the right of soffrage was before tbe people, with tbe following result : Yess, 6363 ; nays, 19,143. Throughout Illinois the prevalent and Dressing demand at the present time is for laborers of sll classes, and at suehl remuneration as leaves few voluntarily lit. The census returns in Rhode Island show that nearly all the agricultural towns, especially those in the western part of tbe Stale, are declining fn popula tion. The complete official returns of the Kentucky election give the vole for State Treasurer as follows: For Garrard, Con servative, 42,187; for Neal, Radical, 48.081. TENNESSEE. The Memphis Argus, of the 14th, says: We Ufjarstand that, in a few days, the last regiment of while troops stationed here will be mustered out and sent home. Tbsrt "ll 'ho remain only three or four regiments of iifl'i ."oops, which will constitute the whole garrison oi Memphis. The Clarksville Chronicle understands that the white troops staiioned there are to be withdrawn and their place filled with negroea. Tbe Chronicle protests against this. Tbe Memphis Argus is informed that there is but one while regiment left in West Tennessee, tbe rest all being color ed regiments. A letter to the Boston Courier, dated Nashville, August 3d, saya: Aa aged ex-Confederate was merciless ly shot to death in Knoxville, recently, by a yonag Union man, who had already sued him in a civil court, and recovered the sum of 89O00 damages, for alleged persecution during tbe late war. It waa supposed the Confederate, at the time he was shot and killed, was prepiriaa: to establish bis innocence of the damages. by proving aa aleU. Tragedies like this are of frequent occurrence.

With tbe single exception of re tiring late, their other habits, we believe, are regular. They have a peculiar system of gymnastics that gives a sturdy development to their muscles, and nsing their voices a good deal in festive cborns, has tbe effect to strengthen their lungs and ward off any ten dency to pulmonary complaint. They sat up with us last night In strong force, and attack ed us in single companies aad in battalions. While our attention was diverted by a brisk skirmishing party on our right, the enemy had massed on our left, and made so sudden an attack, that we were driven half out of bed. Taking advantage of a lull in hostilities, during which tbe enemy seemed to be holding a consultation of war, we crawled stealthily out of bed, leaving the musquitoes beneath the bar, and took to the sofa. They missed us very soon, and sent out a scout, who was not long ascertaining our whereabouts and reporting, when the whole fore charged up on us with a violence that was increased by rage at our momentary escape. So the con test raged all night, fighting from the bed to the sofa, and from the sofa to the bed. Our loss was a pint of blood, and a total loss of sleep. Loss of th enemy , not known. They were several hours in burying tbeir dead, however. "We could hot pass such another night, though it were to buy a world of bappy days." Besides the Miss Sketoes, we are eeartain w recognised the voices of Mr. and Mrs. Sketoc. Tbe Sketoe family waa larg-ely re presented in consina, relatives by marriage, etc. We felt before morning that they were all blood relatives to ns. A Problem for the President. ' "The Disbanded Volunteer," a correspond ent of the New York Mercury, gets off the following : Alexander H. Stevens, late rebel vice presi dent, is mncb more to be pitied, upon tbe whole, than his principle. Jen, went later the secesh bisiness conamory, as thsy say in Paris, but Alick was kinder rung Inter it by Iiorus Oreely, sc be ses. He wants a par- din now on that ackount, and I think he ort hev it, being aa be is an entbewsiastick crit ter, and that the Tryboon'a argeymenu in the spring and summer of 1861, and so along, advereating th right of the South to go back out of the Union whenever ahe'd a mind loo, and erectly beaeachln Duel Sam to let her slide, and no questions axed. I tell yon, ibetn dieatribes was powerful sofistickle, so much that they cum all-fired near misledin me. Judge then wot mast have been thar effect on poor Stereos, a small man, wayln only ninety-nine pounds two ounce in bis bools, of a credulous temperament and con stitoosbionally hlsterical. Ef it ia just and right to pnt Stevens in a dungin and try him for bit life, what ought to be dun with the Tryboon Oammarier at whose feet be sot and suckt in treeson onwares. Sarse for the skolflr is sarse for tbe teacher too. They are boath In tbe same boat, and its only fare they should sink or swim, survive or perish to gether. And yet Horrus Oreely is regarded as a patryit up to tbe hub, while tbe uufor lunit being a pat faith in bia doctrine, aad carried out his principles, Is in paril of his lit for so dooin. As a thurrowly soor mtn, sad wun who respecks tbe good eld singular Saxon maxim, of '-six of wun and half a duz sen of tbe niher," President Johnson Is based to liberate Stevens, or jug tbe editnr of tbe Tryboon. The problem is, witch will be doo. I think, I my opinyon, he wont not Horrus in doorance vile oaleas Tbnrlow Weed should insist anon it, aad that after punlabiag tbe late rebel vice, by a few weeks imprisonment for being fool enuff to toiler the lead of tbe Tryboon, he will restore him to liberty aad the pereoot of happiness, with an injunkshun ta go ana sis no more.
