for the relief of the sufferers. Holden was '

fuses to give up. The accusation is that '
he is using the amount to aid in his election
as Mayor. If he is guilty the deserved
punishment is promised. ,

Mrs. Turner, wife of Hon. J. Milton |
'f (Jrner, American Minister resident in Li- '

Louis: ]
"I see and learn so many things in this i
strangest of strange countries that, hurried (
as lam to reach the mail before it is closed, \
I scarcely know which to write first about.
But I must tell you that the President ami
Oabinctgave Mr. Turner a superb reception. .
Persons from many different parts were ■
present. A few evenings afterwards he MP* i
ranged for us a select gathering at his resi
dence, which was simply elegant. Tho .
Mayor of the city also gave us a reception ,
at his residence. This entertainment caused
tne, lor the time being, to forget that wo .

ical climate was upon the table, and the '
company was very intellectual. .
"Just to think of generals und colonels

characters, authors, editors, poets, and '
other distinguished literary people, together !
with a live President, and a bevy of ladies j

My Mother.—My mother was raised
in Virginia. There were three of us chil- (
dren, Sally, Manuel and Laura, the baby, i
two months old. Our owner, Mr. Royal, (
who was a kind master, died, and I saw ]
my mother and all the children sold for his (
debts, and tho family scattered. Even i
baby was torn from mother, and I saw its i
little hands stretched toward her, and heard i
its cries as they took it from her arms, and
she was denied the last request to nurse it.
Mr. Matins, who bought mother and two |
children, but afterward permitted this |
cruel separation, will remember. If any I
one knows where my mother can be found, |
if living, he will confer a great kindness on
me by sending word to Sally,
Menger House, San Antonio, Texas. (
Republican papers in tlie South are re
quested to give the above a gratuitous in- i
sertion. ,
The Chicago Gold.—The Philadel
phia Ledger of Wednesday says: Tho work ,
of examining the coin received from the Sub- '
Treasury at Chicago was yesterday com- (,
pleted at the Mint in this city. There was t
about $350,000 in gold, silver and nickles. i
The money has been deposited in the stone ]
vaults of the Treasury at Chicago, some of |
it in bags, some in paper parcels, and some i
loose. After the lire tho ruins were over- ,
hauled, and the mass of that which was be- i
lieved to be coin was sent to Philadelphia. ;
When it reached hero it was apparently a
mass of mortar, rags aud dirt. At the
Mint, the good coin was at once extricated.
and about $250,000 of this was obtained
that needed no more than the application
of acid to make it presentable. The bal
anco consisted of masses of gold, silver and
nickel, amalgamated by heat, and requir
ing the process of coining to be gone over
again. This was completed yesterday, and
the return of the product made to the Sec
retary of the Treasury.

'■ A "Barefoot" Policeman Assumes
; Imperial Power, and is Moved to a
Position Better Suited to His Ca
i pacities.—Nothing is more necessary to
• the preservation of good order on exciting
i occasions like the prcsent,than the selection
i of wise, judicious and sensible men from
• the police force to keep order among the
I people. Nothing is more likely to create ■
■ a disturbance of a serious character, than
to confer power upon a simpleton or meen- i
diary, who, armed with a little brief author
' ity. imagines he holds the world in a sling, ■
ana has only to let slip one string, and this >
great ball will go trembling from its axis
i into destruction.
Of the simple, arrogant, and blustering, l
swaggering kind, is one policeman Leroy
Barefoot, who wears cap No. 5, and sleeps
in the same numbered cot. This individu- .
• al was, this morning, stationed at the vo- i
ting precinct on Bank street, between I
Ninth and Tenth, parsing which, we stop- I
ped a moment to see how the election mat
ters were going. <
Seeing four or five colored men around ]
the table of a Republican distributor of tick
ets, this shoeless-named gentleman order
ed them to leave. When asked by us why '
he did so, he answered, such were his or- i
ders from the Chief of Police. i
We then told the colored men if they 1
had time to loaf around the polls, they had <
time to go out and hunt up their friends.
This remark so enraged Mr. Barefoot that ]
he rudely threatened to drag us to the sta- 1
tion-house if we repeated that language
again. We repeated it then aud there, |
and Mr. Barefoot retired within doors. (
I lad he carried out his threat, it is possible (
a disturbance would have occurred. We (
promptly reported tie case to Chief Poe, i
who properly informed us he would move i
Mr. Barefoot to some position not requiring ]
any great capacity. <
These want-oi-sensc men are usually re- j
sponsible for the creation of disturbances, \
and we feel sure Chief Poe would not will
ingly risk the peace of society, intentionally, i
However humble the individual, his person- <
al liberty is sacred to him, and we certain- j
ly feel but little disposed to occupy a place
iv a station house, simply because an ig- |
norant policeman may wish us to do so. j
Royal Fire Insurance Company.
John H. Claiborne <fe Co., of this city, 1
have taken the Richmond agency of the '
Royal Fire Insurance company, of Liver- '
pool and London, and solicit the patronage '
of the public upon its unquestionable secu
rity, its prompt and liberal settlement of
all claims, and its heavy income. The !
Royal has fifty thousand dollars in United
State bonds deposited with the Treasurer
of Virginia. We call attention to the ad
vertisement in another column. :
Sold ijy their Own Friends.—All
three of the Democratic papers are gass- j
ing about a "bogus ticket," gotten up to j
beat Messrs. Wynne and Daniel.
If they don't know, they ought to know,
these tickets are gotten up by Democrats
to defeat these two gentlemen. (
Mr. Wynne and Mr. Daniel had as well i
know they arc sold out by their own i
friends, this, too, in spite of the fact that '
Wynne is the most sensible man on the
ticket. ,
Hustings Court.— ludge Guigon, ,
Presiding. —The grand jury met yesterday,
and returned indictments for felony against
Martin R. Alley, Sarah Turner, John Wil- ]
Hams, Robert Lomax, R. S. Brown, Ran- i
dall Gray, James H. Brown alias Henry j
Brown, and Topsey Brown. <
The grand jury adjourned until Tuesday, '
14th inst. .
After the appointment of judges and i
commissioners of election the court ad- j
journed until Wednesday. (
Runaway AcC-PEHt. — V-___?___** i
evening, a horse attached to Gill's bread
wagon, having been loft without a driver, j
dashed down Seventh street at a furious •
rate. As the runaway reached Cary, he ,
collided with the team of Cole's Express, ,
passing up Cary, which brought him to a
stand. Result, big crowd, damaged har
ness and a badly hurt mule. ;
Foreign Commerce. —Six foreign and ,
two American vessels were entered from |
foreign ports during the month of October, ,
bringing with them merchandise valued at -
$31,50!). ;
One foreign and lour American vessels i
were cleared for foreigu countries with |
exports valued at $184,450. ,
The duties on merchandise imported for )
■ October were heavier than for any month
during the past year.
Lady Injured.—About dusk yester- '
day afternoon, on Broad street, between i
' i Third and Fourth, an elderly lady attempt
' |ed to alight from one of the street cars re
- turning from Holloywood. The boy pre- :
maturely gave the signal to start, and the
> lady fell, her hand catching in the iron
• guard which passengers take hold of in get- .
I ting on or off. She was dragged some ten i
• or fifteen feet before the driver could make
■ another stop. The affair created conside
rable excitement lor a time. The lady, !
i whose name we did not learn, seemed to
> be considerably injured.
I To the Rescue! City.—
i The Democrats are bringing to the polls all
- the halt, lame, blind, sick and crippled.

Demo c racy Stripped of its
"Bloomer."—For some time the Democ
racy of Richmond has been gorgeously ar
rayed in "Bloomer" costume, which has
been so very attractive, from the knee
down, as to result in Republican defeats.
This costume, though cut and made by v
Republican tailor, was only of service to
Democracy, because it "lit" Republicanism
very badly. A short time ago it was sent
to North Carolina, and although telegraph
ed for and expected on the 5 o'clock train
this morning, we understand it failed to
come to time. As an evidence of its being
anticipated by Democracy, if our readers
will glance over the list of appointments of
Republican judges, they will perceive that
one "Beverly Bloomer" is set down as a
judge at Jim Fisher's precinct, Monroe
Wo do not know who is acting in this
very honorable gentleman's stead, but wo
do hope we have not swapped the devil for
a witch.
Our party has calculated on reducing, at
this precinct alone, the Democratic major
ity by at least 300 unless, indeed, there
is still an "Arnold" in the field.
As sure as the sun shines some of the
past villainy of Democracy will be discov
ered, and if it is, and Judge Bond does not
send some of the actors in a suit of stripes
to Albany, then, indeed, have we mistaken
the man.
Look sharp. Republicans, or rascality
will accomplish what a lack of votes will
fail to do.

An Apology to the Republican
Party.—A friend of ours requested us
yesterday, to state there would be a Re
publican meeting last night at a place
called "Houck's Hall," on Broad street.
We regret to find this a mistake, as the
party is usually more select in choosing a
place to hold its meetings. Seriously, we
are at a loss to know which would bo most
damaged by meeting there, Houck's Hall
or the Republican party ; neither of them
being top respectable in Richmond.
A number of our friends express great,
indignation this morning at our mistake.
They declare no authority was given any
one to say the party would hold, a -au .ting
at such a place.
Well Done, Good and Faithful
Servants.—We have good reports from
a number of our Republican judges and
challengers, several of whom are acting
fearless of the threats and intimidations of
our enemies. Among the number, our
young and gallant friend Henry 11. Wells,
Jr., is a trump. He was the choice of the
party for the place of judge at the cele
brated Fisher precinct, where Democratic
majorities are made to suit circumstances ;
but then our noble judge " couldn't see
Henry has two good eyes, one on each
side of his nose, and if tricks are not vain
where he is to-day, Democracy may have
our best hat.
Are They True or False ?—A card
is in circulation, containing quotations from
the great Know-Nothing speeches of Ra
leigh T. Daniel, delivered in 1855. If these
charges are true, wo cannot imagine how
any foreigner or Catholic can vote for him.
If they are false, a great outrage has been
perpetrated against Mr. Daniel. They are
said to be based on the testimony of a
prominent Irish "Conservative" of Rich

Steep .'—We saw a gentleman ordered from '
/-■telle's Restaurant last night, who was !
; charged with "talking politics," although :
j he was taking supper with one of tho eandi-
I dates.
Well! If politics isn't becoming disre
putable, we are mistaken, if men are to be
ordered from a public eating ami drinking
house for mentioning the subject.
This is one of the results of monopolies,
since it was but a short timo ago that no- i
lliteness was plentiful, now it is at a dis-!
Wont Johnson, or somebody else, open j
an eating-house where gentlemen will be I

Police Court— Justice J. J. White
Presiding. —The following cases were dis
posed of this moi-ning:
James Ryan, charged with creating a
disturbance on the street. Fined $2.
Rosa King, charged witli feloniously
seizing, taking and secreting from Rachel
Jones, one Judith Jones, the child of the

custody and care of the said child. Dis
T. 11. Bramleit. charged with interfering
with Policeman O'Connor in the discharge
of his duties. Discharged.
Thomas Carroll, charged with unlawfully
and feloniously shooting Isabella Anglo.
Case continued till Saturday next.
Theodore Scott, charged with stealing
J. 4.5., the property of ]■]. Terry. Dis
charged ; no evidence whatever to* sustain
the charge.
Candidates. Attention !— We
have several times charged that by fraud
and other unfair means, the Republican
party of Riclnnond has been cheated out of
the results of the election. It is the in
tention of tho Democrats to do the same
thing again, this time, if necessary. The
law allows each party to have two of Iheir j
members to see the ballots counted. Let
tho Republican candidates at once select j
two men to go to each precinct and demand I
their admission, as provided by law. A '
failure to do this, puts it iv the power of
the Dcmocnats to swindle us as they have
done heretofore.
Brag's a Cood Don, But Hold
Fast's a Better One.—Let Democrats
brag as much as they choose, but it is the
duty of every Republican to go silently to
Work, and the greatest number of votes
is what should win. Let its try it this time,
as I'loomer is not here.
There's Danger Aukad.—Demo
crats with fifteen shillings are running
about offering to bet on ;"iOO majority for
their ticket. This seems to be tho general
majority determined upon. To prevent
this, or even any majority, let every Repub
lican vote.
Look out I'oit Rascality. Had
while men are taking advantage of colored
men by giving them "bogus" Republican i
tickets. If you can't read yourself, get i
some one who you can "swar by" to tell
you what is on the ticket before you deposit

dred and fifty ahead. This need not pre
vent Republicans from working.

Look our for Deceivers.—The
Democrats are thronging the polls, and wo
are sorry to say they are inducing some
colored men to vote their ticket. Whether
this is done fairly or not, we do not know,
but it is tho duty of Republicans to see that
none of the colored men are deceived.

President Omul on th.- K,i-Klu\.
In recent conversations with those who
understand the nature and extent of the
Ku-Klux organizations, the President has
expressed his determination to use all the
powers given him under the laws to root
out and destroy it entirely. He declared
that its acts strike at the foundation of all
society and disorder, aud that the crimes
that have been daily committed by its
members for many months past entitle
them to neither mercy nor consideration.
He is sworn to enforce the laws, and will
do his utmost to put an end to the organ
ized system of murder, whipping aud terror
which prevailed in tho States recently in
The President declares that he was loth
to believe in tho formidable character of the
conspiracy ; that he reluctantly recom
mended repressive legislation, and did not
do so before he was fully convinced of the
nature of tlieir movements ; but that ho is
now fully determined to use every means
under the constitution and laws to defeat
them. The Department of Justice has a
complete secret system at its command,
and the President has, of course, been ful
ly informed of al! its operations which are
especially directed toward the Ku-Klux
movements. If the public could be in
formed of the character of this information,
it would be greatly startled.
The sub-committees, now in session in
Georgia and A labama, are reported, by ad
vice., just received here, to be making tho
rough work, and obtaining a great deal of
valuable testimony. The condition of
Georgia is shown to be much worse than it
was six months since, so liir as the mani
festation of organized hatred to the govern
ment is concerned. Jt is also reported
that tho testimony recently taken,
and other knowledge in possession of
the government, point in support of a sus
picion long entertained that Gen. Da. Bose,
a member of Congress, and the son-in-law
of Robert Toombs, is chief of tho "Invisi
ble Empire" fur the State of Georgia. It
is in tho district ho represents that a ma
jority of those who have fled from South
Carolina have found refuge. The charge
against Dv Bose will probably be made the
subject of investigation by the House when
Congress assemble!.

Much has boon said of the intense heat ( f
the tires which destroyed Peshtigo, _____..•

has been said cannot give the stranger even
a faint conception of the reality. The heat
has been compared to that engendered by a

some of the phenomena. For instance, we

do not know any way to account for this,

The house, barn and fences of Mr. Hill,
of the upper Sugar Bush, were burned, and
Mr. Hill and his family all lost. By the
side of the family was a narrow alley, just
wide enough to drive through. In this' al

fence were entirely destroyed, the wagon
box was not even singed.
Alf Phillips's house, in the upper Sugar
Bush, was destroyed, but the family es
caped. They state that two opposite cur
rents of air apparently struck the house,
which was sixteen by twenty-four feet, and
