[Correspondence of the State Journal.]
Petersburg, Aug. 10th, 1861.
A meeting of the Democrats of ] __nee
George county was held at the court-houM
to-day. About the usual " court-day
crowtl " assembled, with the addition of
some "Conservative" candidates for dele
gates to the Democratic State convention I
and their friends. The party "rcsolutcd"
and "speechified" to the edification of the
gaping crowd. The usual slang-whanging
of "Radicals," "scalawags" and "carpet
baggers" was indulged in, and it is not ne
cessary to repeat any of it here.
But there was one statement made by
one of the speakers, which is worthy of
serious consideration. That speaker was
Dr. George 0, Rives, a prominent politician
of the county antl the probable candidate
of the Democrats for the House of Dele
gates from Prince George.
He advocated the "new departure." lie
urged his friends to go in and accept the
situation, swallow the constitution as it is,
including the thirteenth, fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments ; "and then," said he,
"when we get possession of the United
States Government, ice will repeal those
amendments and have everything our own
We have always believed there was no
sincerity in the protended acceptance of a
portion of the Republican platform by the
Democracy, but 1 did not think any ol them
would have the honesty to come out and
avow their real purpose in this "new de
parture ;" and this would not have been
if the speaker had an idea that any Repup
lican of intelligence was listening, and that
his remarkable confession would have found
its way into the Republican papers.

LETTER FROM NEW YORK.
A VMM to Prosiiert Park, Brooklyn.
lOorresjioudence ol' Ihe Stale Journal.]
Our con.spoiident thus describes a visit
to Prospect Park, Brooklyn :
Emerging from the dusty thoroughfares
of a crowded city one is sudddenly ushered
into an eden of verdure and bloom. An
area comprising seven hundred acres of
pleasure-grottnil, tlotted with miniature for
ests, undulated with knowls and ravines,
and veined by natural streams, whose ec
centric windings aro playing hide and seek
with sunshine and shade all the summer's
day. The eye cannot wander from the rest
ful shade and llnwmg landscape, nor the
feet stray from the delicious music of foun
tain or cascade. At the grand entrance an
immense fountain is playing, a crystal pho
tograph of our national capitol, which falls
into a circle to be surrounded by statuary;
the solitary figure of our noble Lincoln
having already entered the lists. A mag
nificent statue of I'lanklin was unveiled in
the early summer, on a superb eminence
within the grounds.
Saturday is the gala day of the week, in
which a grand free concert is given in Cen
tral Grove, and the children permitted un
reserved range of the entire grounds. The
scenery is enlivened with flying equipages,
pic-nic parties, croquet-playing, and the
countless fairy forms of happy children
tripping over the green sward. The rock
work is remarkably* flue and picturesque.
There are deep gorges, walled on either side
by solid granite, over which delicate vines
are trailing and bright blossoms wreathing;
boulder rocks protect here and there, giv
ing a wild and rugged outline, and breaking
up the monotony of its stratifications.
Summer houses and rustic arbors of gnarled
branches and vines are ingeniously
constructed, bridging chasms, shading
paths, and ottering quiet retreats at inter
vals through the incandrian mazes. The
(orest trees are of nature's own growing,
and wonderfully symmetrical as a whole,
the exceptional departures adding, by their
grotesqueness, to tlie variety and ruralness
of the scenery. Although not yet equal to
Central Park in exquisite blending and
grouping of nature and art, it chums j
greater advantages of expansion and
growth. While Central Park is circum- I
scribed, and the encroachments of its im
perial city seem to say "thus far and no
farther," Prospect Park, with an unlimited
range of broad, green acres, and stretch of
hill and dale, has a future commensurate
with its limitless resources. lone.
Republican Meeting in Buckingham.
At a meeting of the Republican party of
Marshall township, in the county of Buck
ingham, held at the storehouse of J. W.
Abrahams, on Saturday the sth of August,
1871, John Davis was appointed chairman,
and F, L. Wilkinson chosen secretary.
Colonel 1). J. Woodfin explained the ob
ject of the meeting, and made an able and
eloquent speech, in which he exposed many
of the tricks and devices of the so-called |
< 'onservative party, criticised the action of I
the last Legislature, and exposed the bill
for the apportionment of the State, show
ing clearly that it was intended to build up
the Conservative party, and to defeat the
Republican party in the next election.
He also exposed the funding bill; show
ing very clearly that great injustice had
been done the people of the State by the
passage of the bill Ic. He made an ear
nest appeal to the laboring men to maintain
their independence, by coming out boldly
and sustaining the Republican party, urging
them to organize thoroughly for the com- I
ing campaign.
At the conclusion of Col. Woodfln's
speech, it was resolved to elect nine dele
gates to the convention to be held at Buck
ingham court-house on the 13th of August
next; and thereupon, the following gentle
men were elected, to wit: Colonel D. J.
Woodfin, John AN . Abrahams, Evass R.
Williams, Jacob Redwood, Abraham
Woodson, Elisha Hanks and Fred. Dean,
and, on motion, the chairman and secretary
Hire added to the.delegation.
And on motion, it was resolved that
these proceedings be published in the
State Journal.
John Davis, Chairman.
P. L. WiUcinson, Secretary.
A report on steam-boiler legislation,
made to the British Association for the
Advancement of Science, at its meetiii
last year, by some of the ablest practi
cal men of science in England, such as Sir
William l-'airbarn and Sir Joseph Whit
worth, states that for every explosion due
to the boiler-minder, in neglecting the
water supply, &c, six are due to the boiler
maker or boiler owner, from making or
using bad boilers.
Russia imported in ISO' 7, am] does nearly
every year, about ;i5,1100,000 rubles worth
of raw cotton. Hut, strange to say. none
of this cotton conies from the 'United
States, and the cotton mills of Moscow and
St. Petersburg, which run i;,ijihi,ihlO or
7,000,000 spindles, are almost exclusively
ltd from the fields of Egypt, Brazil and '
India.

It Is a very significant fact, that notwithstand

never lost one whit of its popularity, but, on the
contrary, the call for it has steadily increased
from its first discovery, and at no previous time
has the demand for it been so great, or the quan

Another slgnm-»nt _HM is, that nowhere has
the "PAINKILLER" ever been in higher re

and individuals, than It has been here at home,
