(Evening Utah fmtmaJ. v i r c i nTa"n_wsT~ —Mr. Ashton Dodd, had his foot badly crushed in a threshing machine in lxiudoun county a few days ago. —Alexander Scott, a colored man, sixty years of age, was crushed to death by a mass of stone at Wood's stono quarry, near Lynchburg, on Friday. —The Lynchburg Republican says: " Ex-Ciovernor William Smith lias resigned as one of the advisory members of the State Executive Committee ; and declines to act in reference to the time or place of holding the Congressional Convention." —The Republicans of Greensville county held a rousing ratification meeting at Hicks lord on the 27th. Tho meeting was ad dressed by W. N. Stevens and Col. Jen kins. A resolution was adopted express ing hearty approval of the nomination of Grant and Wilson and W. 11. 11. Stowell. —Tho Alexandria Gazette of Saturday evening says : " Tho double daily mail service from the postoffice in this city to the South, was resumed last night, the sec ond mail closing at 8:50 P. M., and leaving on the through train on the Alexandria and Fredericksburg railroad." —The Warrenton fnilex has the follow ing : " An affray occurred at Hectortown on last Tuesday between Frederick Glass cock, and Decatur and Frank Vanhorn, in which Glasscock shot Frank Vanhorn just above the hip, wounding him so severely as to cause his death last Wednesday even ing." —The Warrenton Index says : " We are informed that Reuben Smith shot Lemuel Fincham in the stomach last Tuesday. The shooting occurred on tho farm of Charles Green, near Washington, the coun ty seat of Rappahonnock county. The wound is supposed to be mortal. Cause, whiskey and cards." —The Mecklenburg Sentinel thus calls at tention to impositions practiced upon tho farming community : "11 we have been cor rectly informed us to faets,one ofthe greatest impositions of the age is now being practiced by tho Ibianoke Navigation Company upon the people shipping produce on the river. This copontion, chartered by the Legisla ture many years ago for the purpose of consli tictiwr and keeping iv repair neces sary dams on the river, and removing ob structions, was given the privilege of charg ing Will on al! freight passing over it ; and this privilege they still claim and exercise, although it has been many years since they have expended one dollar or paid the least attention to the condition of the river, and while it is in a very dangerous condition, they exact fifty cents toll on every hogs head of tobacco passing up or down. This company ought certainly to pay heavy divi dends. It is the only one wo know of which has nil receipts and no expenditures. Why don't the oflicers of the Mecklenburg Hoat line look after them " Can't they be enjoined from charging toll or forced to ex pend their receipts in the improvement of the river." ■*•»■ Troubles Anion:: the Maryland Oreeleyite*. The straight-out Democratic State Com mittee of .Maryland met in Baltimore Wednesday, and decided to call a State Convention to nominate electors in the same city on the 11th of September. About a dozen hungry Liberal Republicans, headed by ex-Governor liradford, met at the same time in with a view to dividing the spoils with the straight-outs. The un adulterated Democrats, however, feeling strong in that Slate without the assistance of these few disappointed office-seekers, paid not tho slightest attention to them, and, disappointed and chagrined, they adjourned. A Mnn who Wnged Mar Agalut Women and Children. The Xew York Times says: We are continually receiving inquiries regarding the authenticity of the following atrocious sentiment. We have but oue unswer for all, Horace Grecly is the author, and lie printed the article from which it is an ex tract in the New York Tribune of May 1, 1801: "When the rebellious traitois arc over whelmed in the field, and scattered like leaves before an angry wind, it must not be to return to peaceful and contented homes. They mud find poverty al their jircsides, and see privatum iv the anxious eyes of mothers antl the vans of children." Another Peniocruiic Pnpcr Dies. The Fulton (111.) Democrat has been a firm and constant advocate of Demociatic principles. The nomination of Greeley and lirown by the Democratic party has killed it. The editor said iv his last issue that he could not consistently support those nominations, and, therefore, withdrew from the field. Policy at this time, he said, could not gain the ascendancy over princi ple in his mind, aud rather than, like many of his old political associates, dishonestly advocate the election of his life-long antago nists, he stopped the issue of hw paper. Are we A Fkkk People?—So we flatter ourselves, and boast of our liberty, but no community ever submitted to a greater despot than do we. Our sovereign — invisible though she may be—rules us with an iron rod; and grumble though we may, as she leads we follow. No matter how independent we may be, we must com ply in a certain degree with her dictates ; lor there is a kind of innate modesty that rebels against our attracting the gaze of eveiy pashor-by, in being totally dillercnt from everybody else; for instance, if the " style " is " bouftant," it is utterly im possible to go absolutely and unequivocally " flat." We can modify, and modify only. Much has been written, both well and wisely, upon the pernicious habit of wear ing shoes too short, but until Dame Fash ion steps into a shoe of the requisite length, ail is written in vain. Fools and philoso phers, wise mon and maidens, adults and children, must wear the shoe bhe tits upou her " fantastic toe." Artisans and mer chants obey her nod; and although a favor ed few can have shoes to order, the mass of the people are compelled to wear what is in the market; so, until she magnanimously inaugurates something combining both taste and comfort, suffering humanity must fol low in her train, the victims of the high heeled-toe-tortures now in vogue.— Science of Jleallh. _ Physiology in Schools.—Tho new school-law of the State of Illinois now re quires that Physiology and The Laws of Life to be taught in the common schools. This shows progicss. When will this re quirement be made in all the States ? The teachers of this and other States in which this is now required, will find the Science. of Health to bo the best educational month ly they can read, Tor it will furnish thorn information which they do not find in school books. Teachers are wanted as agents in every district, and special terms are made with them. AUCTION SALES. W.

Struck With an Ax.—A colored woman named Fanny Lewis, was struck iv the head with an ax this morning by Dr. Benjamin V. Cosby, on whoso premises on Seventh street, near City Spring Park, she resides. The report spread all over town that the woman was killed. There port is premature. She is pretty badly ', hurt, but the doctor says she will recover, and be able to appear in court on Saturday next. Dr. Cosby and the woman seem to , have become engaged in a general fight about a difficulty between two negro chil dren, one belonging to Fanny and the other , in the employ of the doctor. The testimony so far as it was elicited upon a question of ' bail, was conflicting, and we do not, propose i to weigh it. Dr. Cosby received two or . three slight wounds from a knife, which it is alleged Fanny Lewis hail in her hand * during tho fight, and was knocked down ; with a brick-bat thrown by her. In the > struggle about the yard he got hold of a small ax, with a short handle, and struck * her on the head. The woman was knocked l down and bled profusely, aud was thought ' to be dead. She finally recovered consci ousness, and on examination was found to be not dangerously injured. The case was ' continued until Saturday next for further J examination, when it is thought the injur ed party will be able to give in her testi mony. Dr. Cosby was allowed bail in the sum of $300 for his appearance in court on that day. , Louisa County Convention.—The j Republicans ol Louisa county met in con- ' vention at Louisa Court-House on the 27th ' instant, Mr. S. P. Perkins was elected chairman of the convention, and Mr. C. P. Chisham chosen secretary. On motion, a ( committee of three was appointed on ere- 1 dentials, who, after examining the stone, 1 reported all the towns in the county fully I represented. Delegates were elected to i the Congressional Convention to be held in i Richmond on the 7th of August next, who t were instructed to vote for the Hon. John 1 Ambler Smith, of Richmond, as the Repnb- c liean candidate for Congress from the Third district. c After tho convent on adjourned, a grand I mass meeting was held at the court-house, f and the people addressed by William I). 1 Jackson, Esq., of Manchester, who spoke enthusiastically in behalf of the National Republican ticket, and of their proposed nominee for Congress from this district. , The meeting passed resolutions strongly _ endorsing Grant and Wilson. , Heavy Robbery of Money and , JEWELRY.—On Saturday afternoon Ser- • geant Hall and Policeman Charter arrested a young colored man on the charge of rob- ' bing Mr. Theodore Flick, a butcher, who j resides on Brook avenue, beyond Bacon's Quarter Branch, of $ISS and a check for $100. Albert, Edward and Letitia Hill and [ Flora Jackson and Salina Massey were also ', arrested by the same officers on the charge of receiving portions of the stolen property with the full knowledge that it was stolen. On an investigation of the case this morn ing, it appeared that Smith, who had been " in the employ of Frick, was instigated to t the robbery by Albert Hill. Smith seems ] to have turned over to Hill all the money which he stole, and the jewely, consisting of breastpins, sleeve buttons, Ac, was distributed by Smith to the parties named 1 above. Both Smith and Albert Hill were j sent on to tho grand jury for indictment. $ It did not appear that the parties who had t received portions of the money and jewelry s had any knowledge that they were stolen, j and they were therefore discharged. .«»_ . From North Carolina.—A private letter from North Carolina to this paper 8 from a gentleman whose position gives him ( unusual facilities for gaining reliable inform- , ation as to the political situation, contains this encouraging paragraph : "Our prospects are exceedingly flatter ing. If lam not badly mistaken—and I have information from every townshij) in the State—our ticket will be elected by 9,000. j The legislature will be Republican—the , Senate by (I, the house by 12 majority. We shall elect five of the eight Congress men. I may bo mistaken, but the signs of , the times are all in our favor." , Hon. James Lyons' Letter—The demand for the letter of Ibis distinguished Virginian, published in the Statu Jour nal of Friday last, was so great as to speedily exhaust the large extra edition which we thought it advisable to issue on the occasion. No document printed dur ing the present campaign has excited so much interest, or desire for its perusal, and we take pleasure in informing those who have not yet been able to obtain a copy that it will appear in both our semi-weekly and weekly editions of to-morrow, of which any number can be had at our counter, or at 0. F. Johnston's music and book depot. About Flags.—A paragraph is going the rounds of our exchanges, copied from a Richmond letter, which states that " the confederate banner is waved in front of the ' (ireeley column here with great audacity." The author of the statement shows great audacity in thus misrepresenting our people. The confederate bimner may bo visible to the mind's eye of some who march in the Greeley column, but not to the naked eye. We have not seen it, and we but do our duly in contradicting the statement.', Letter-Carrier Appointed.—-W. F. Bowie, of this city, has been appointed by Miss Van Lew as a city letter-carrier, aud entered upon his duties to-day. Mr. Bowie, we have no doubt, will make an energetic and faithful carrier. Doing Very Well.—We learn that the Rev. Mr. Dearborn, who was so unfor tunate; as to have his foot crushed by the i cars a few days ago, is doing very well, and [ will fully recover in due time. 1 A Lynchburg Criminal.—Kendall Banks, an alleged criminal, still under . sentence in Lynchburg, was sent to jail . this morning to await action of tho authbri r ties. I Range op Thermometer to-day at ' C V. Johnston's Music and News Hep6t, No. 918 Main street: 0 A. M- 12 SI. 3 P. M. 70. 82 ._ BG. 1 Entered.—The Norwegian bark "Haa -1 bet," C. N.

Ef forts to subdue the Haines proved unavail ing, and both the building and stock was entirely destroyed. One o( the adjoining buildings was slightly damaged. It is be lieved the loss will be over £100,000. The cause of the lire is unknown. The moulding mill ol Sherman it Bro., on Bond street, Brooklyn, was burned this morning, with the adjoining carriage factory of T. Dillons. The losses will pro bably aggregate $75,000. ■*■ Senator Hchurz iv Trouble Again. St. Louis, July 28. —It having been re peatedly asserted here and elsewhere, and several times denied, that Mr. Schurz, pre vious to his election as United States Sena tor, made distinct pledges that he would stand by antl support the Republican party if elected to the Senate, the Slaals Zeiiumj publishes a letter from Benjamin F. Loan, Schurz's competitor in that contest, in which he reviews the situation of affairs at that time, and sums up by declaring that, ac cording to his recollection, Schurz, in a speech at Jefferson City during the Sena torial contest, utterly denied all sympathy with those who favored rebel enfranchise ment; repudiatedtho.se Republican papers which undertook to commit him to that policy, and in the most emphatic language asserted his entire devotion to the most ul tra doctrines of the Radicals, and pledged his faith and support to thetn in future. Hotel Burned— Los* of Life, kc. Ottawa, July 29.—A lire occurred here last night which destroyed the Matthews Hotel and other adjacent buildings. Ixiss, $150,000. One woman was burned to death.
