Lima, July 22, 1871.
It must l?e pleaslnsr lor those foreign capitalists,
both lu the United States aud In Europe, who are so
largely interested lu Peruvian securities, to know
that tins country is adding a pasre to lier history
tnat will go far toward balancing the loug account
of bloodshed aud unarchy recorded against her.
The struggle lor the presidency and Ylco Presidency
oi tho repuolic In being catrled on In a manner
thai reflects honor on the country, presenting an aspect
wholly different irotn those or former contests of
the same character. In the place of musicets, gunpowder
and lntlinldatlou, we have the positive
orders Issued t>y tho government to the chiefs of
tho departments, stnotly prohibiting anv interference
whatsoever In the elections, and directing:
that every citizen shall liavo the most perfect liberty
In the exercise of his right of suffrage.
The order given by this government to disarm and
place out of commission the national vessels-of-war I
stationed In Callao, which was cursorily alluded to
la my lust despatch, has given rise to much unfavorable
comment, in the first place the object lor such
a step appears to be wholly undefined, It being supposed
when the order was made public that souio
design upon the stability of the government was to
tie thwarted by the measure; but since that time it
lias been clearly proven that no such danger exists,
and that, straugc enough for Peru, no conspiracy of
a formidable character Is now being periected in
the country. Hence It is difficult to tathoin the motives
tnat Induced the publication of ihe decreo in
question. It is, indeed, urged by the friends of the
administration that the President was influenced
by a desire to reduco the expenses or the nation,
and had determined thus to negln a systematical
diminution of expenditure. Rut It would seem
that, instead of proving advantageous to the interests
of the Treasury, this decree will considerably
augment, lu th? end, the disDiirsements consequent
upon u war e-iutiiisiiiuuiH. iuu uhuiuku num-iou
bv the tine kuus of me iron-clad ana wooden frigates
in the transportation to Rhore, the Inadequate
provision made for storage and the neglect certain
to eusue to the ships themselves, from tin ridiculously
small number of men left on boaid, will all
lorru a large item on the wrong side or the account.
Bnt the two most serious phases of the question are
Mint, by dwbauding ihe crews of the vessels, the
government loses the services or n large body of
trained pallors almost Impossible to replace, and
piany officers, unabie to subsist on their hair pay,
Wili jln<l Jheiflselves obliged to seek other occupation.
Moriyer. the administration do?*s away with
^f'lat wis MtWm^rad the chief bulwark of the country
from forei&ti aggression, rendering useless the
finest fleet 111 the Pacino, and, lu case 01 war, woukj
flod it difficult to restore it iC ft war footing without
many mouths of preparation. ?
On tb-i 20d of this month the important railway
connecting the town of lea With the port of I'lsco
will bo soKihuH opened by the ^inl0tec?t Public

Ukekkrrikr. W. va., August n, J871. (
Anions tho recent distinguished arrivals here Is
Mr. Jacob Thompson, of Mississippi, a representative
Southern politician, who, It will be remembered,
tilled the position of Secretary of the Interior during
the administration of President Buchanan, from
which he withdrew upon tho secession of his State.
S on after the organization or mo Confe lorate gov* i
eminent at Kicbtnoud Mr. Thompson wa? selected
as Us financial agent In Europe, wnither he was
sent to negotinle the cotton bonds, with what success
Is already known to the readers of the IIer\i.d.
Upon the clow of hostilities (after the amnesty proclamation)
Mr. Thompson, like most of the
Southern representatives In Europe, returned
to his home, renounced public lire and settled
down to the qu'etude and retirement of a planter,
wtilcn ho has steadily pursued to tho present.
In appearance he la not strikingly Impressive, but
In conversation there is an earnestness about him
that carries force and conviction with what he says.
He Is about sixty years of age. above the medium
stature, portly in balUI, and has a Jovial and pleasInn
presence. Coming, as he does, fresh from the
cotton States, I called upon Mr. Thompson a few
days since and found lum at his cottage on Virginia
row, wnere he was amusing himself in a quiet game
of cards with his wile and danghier, while The cnildren
of the latter were playfully gambolling on the ,
porch, making a very hapny domestic scene. Upon
explaining to nlm the uature of my visit Mr. Thompson
seemed disposed to suspend lus amusement and
politely requested mo to be seatod; bat tlUs 1 declined
and made an appointment with him
an hour later, at whicn tiuie I found him at leisure.
After some preliminary chat the subject of my visit
was again broached, upon which he smlicd and expressed
a willingness to give all the information I
required as to the couditlon, feeling and political
sentiment of the Southern people; but, he added,
"1 have a strong aversion to being mentioned in the
public prints, and I never wish lo be mixed up with
public affairs again."
"What is the present polities' condition of affairs
in Mississippi ?" I asked.
"Well, it is just as favorable as could be expected
under the circumstances. There is very little, or I
should say no political excitement there at present.
Every thing worKa quietly and peaceably, and I
think that In a very short time good feeling and
harmony will triumph over the animosity created
between the races by adventurers and scoundrels
from the North."

TFE NEW DRUG LAW.
To THB EDITOR OF TIIE UE1U1.0:?
Thero appears to bo a great amount of excitement
and a spirit of resistance among the druggists
against the law passed by tne last Legislature regnluting
the sale of drugs, and a determination On the
part of quite a number of them to resist the law, ir
those who are holding meetings and devising plans
to evade the law would take a little time to ascertain
what the law really Is the; would at once see
that the law Is not only a Just one, but one which
should be enforced. The writer, who Is an owner
of a drug store, took the palna to call upon thla
board, or, rather, Its gentlemanly secretary, and
ii'om him ascertained that the law piolnuiis any
person putting up a prcscriitlou or dispensing
poisons without having a certificate Horn the board
ol lixamiueis. barely no dru.gist can deny that
there should be Home regulation in iexard to the
sale ol poisons and the prepanmr of prescriptions.
Tiio statement which has been uiade that no ouo
will ho peijni1 led to ?eli salts or senna, Ac.,
without having passed an examination before tills
board Is not true. T|ie law does not prohibit a
clerk selling the ordinary drugs called for at the
counter o( m drug stoie; out it does prohibit?and
Justly, too?any person selling poisons or putting
up a prescription without having some qualiUtatlon.
Let all physicians wno put up their own prescriptions
be compelled to p iss th* examination,
as well as the druvgists, and let us Pear no more
about opposing the law. it there are any druggists
who urc not competent to pass this cxamiuaiiou
let them employ a clerk order** who have been
examined lor prescription clerks, and let them (lispcn?e
poisons and attend to tho prescriptions,
