Cob- solidated PartyThe Sa-1 -- -' " tionals Absorbed. ' .-:? There were many rumors Boating in the air yesterday, as to caucuses for the purpose of getting up local political combinations for the approaching connty election lor otate representatives. A squad of the low-tax men, headed by Mr. Bledsoe ana Mr. x&. V. wn liamson, met in caucus a number of the National-Greenback-Llxir union partymen at Buttenbcrg's, on Second street, near Adams, but the result did not seem to pan out satis factorily, the Nationalists as usual demanding more representation " or "-. offices - than they -were entitled : -to r; by' numbers or influence. Later in the . -day the Wnrfit State' credit Democratic execu tive committee and the Wilson low-tax party executive committee had a meeting and dis cussed differences that had cropped out in the convention' and had developed more Bharply since in this connty. No definite re sult was reached, except, that another meet ing of the committees would be held on Sat urday afternoon next, when in all proba bility some arrangements would be made by which only one legislative ; ticket would be put in the field by the Democracy in Novem ber to meet the legislative ' ticket that would no doubt be put by the Republican party, aided by the littlo squad of Nationals that cut so ridiculous a figure in the late county election. 'jwf.?-'.-;; ; ,-. 'ft - . a ? - . : ThaBspaUlcsji CassklaaUsa.- - . : The Democracy will be confronted in November-by this alliance like onto that of 1878. It is asserted that this speckled com bination wilt pat a legislative ticket in the field, composed of the following names: For State senator, J. W. Vernon,, and which we do not believe) John J... Duffy, and A. V. Hunter lor notorial sena- ator; f or " notarial representative,' T. F. Cas sels, colored; for county" representatives, t.;asn JUOBUy, . colored, tien ravne, colored, Theodore Krekel, Willis G. Reeves, H. B. Ramsey and L. Lawhorn. It is also asserted that . .the - above charming ticket " will be topped off with with : the name of Wm. M. Smith as a can didate for congressional honors or defeat. There are others in tlie Republican and National folds who are seeking the above position 4nt -they are dark horses, figura tively and literally. So far-as "the' congres sional nominee is concerned ilardeman and Fayette counties have - already instructed their delegates to vote for Wm. M. Smith, and he'will, no doubt, receive in the conven tion the twelve 'votes m Shelby county. ine . alliance : between ' the Nation alists and Republicans, . after . their bit ter denunciations of each other during the late county canvass, is one of the strange re sults of f politics' but they have for the ap proaching occasion buried the hatchet, and are reclining politically together, whites and blacks. Of course the majority of the Na tionalists were only Republicans in flimsy disguise. As to how the voters of the combi nation will elect as between Hawkins and Edwards, time only can tell; but, as there are not ' very many simon-pure Nationalists in this county, Edwards , will receive the cold shoulder, and Hawkins- will scoon in the con solidated vote of the new Republican-National-Greenback-Labor ;High-tax- State- credit party oi Shelby county. ; Already i handbill, or dodger, )ias been' put in circula tion, calling on the Republicans of Shelby cauntv to meet in ibeir wards and districts, on Friday next, the tenth instant, and. select delegates to the county convention, which will be held at th-'Exposition building on next Monday, the thirteenth instant, at ten o'cfockr"when delegates to the congressional convention would b) selected, and a legisla tive ticker for the ceanty would be nomi nated.

It was over the Knavesmire course at lork that, in August,' 1804, Mrs' Annie Thornton, - wife of the famous Colonel Thornton, - rode Vingarello against her brother-in-law, Captain Flint, pn Thorn- ville, the distance being four miles at catch-weights, and the waeer five- hundred guineas a side and a private bet of one thou sand more, I here was one hundred thousand persons on the course, which was kept by the oixtn aragoons, . ana more than one million dollars changed ; hands on the race. ai tne start - tne betting was "five to four and six to four on the petticoat;" at two miles it was seven to four, and at three miles two to one. Mrs. Thornton took the lead and kept it, increas ing it steadily until in the last mile a saddle girth slackened and she could not maintain her pace. "Never," says the New York Her ald of August 25, 1854, "did a woman ride in better style. It is difficult to say whether 1 ... . . ner norsemanship, her beauty or her dress were more admired,' She rode in a leopard- colored body, with blue sleeves, the skirt buff ana blue cap, fio words can express the disappointment at the defeat of Mrs.' Thorn ton. The spirit she displayed and the good humor with which she bore the losses greahy diminished the evultation of many of the winners." In the following year Mrs. Thorn ton made a match for 2000 guineas, with a best of 600, with Mr. Bamford, who, at the last moment, declined to ride,, and let her canter over the course. She also rode a match with the famous jockey Frank Buckle. Mrs, Thornton "habited in a purple cap and waiscoat, long nankeen skirts, purple shoes and embroidered stockings," out out the run ning, and though once Buckle passed her she closed in on him and beat him after a des perate finish, or to quote from the chronicle, ''the lady, by the most excellent horseman ship, pushed'farward and came in in a supe rior style to anything of tlie kind we have ever witnessed, gaining the race by a half a neck." Her admirers carried her back on their shoulders to the grand stand in triumph. .. s f WaTKcra'a foiis Cotton Sack", ,. At Cost, Sorghum-mills, evaporators, cotton-gins. p LANUdTAFF.
