The Stowell meeting swallowed up the Porter meeting. When Porter saw this, lie took Iris three followers and went over to Cherry Hill, and asked the Stowell speak ers to divide time with him, which was done. He was allowed one hour, but want oil an hour and a half, and about twenty Conservatives who were in the audience of four or five hundred did all they could to secure all the time possible for Porter. The bolter made a lame and labored argument for himself, and was afterwards handled without gloves by Senator R. G. Greer t, Hon. J. 11. Van Aukeu, and Mr. Freeman, of Halifax. The meeting was also addressed by P. K. Jones, who waR speaking when Porter arrived. Every man present, except the few Greeleyit.es and Mr. Porter and his three men, declared heartily for Mr. Stowell, and pledged themselves to work actively to secure tho unanimous support of that portion of the county for him. Porter seems to be leading a forlorn hope indeed. Th. Int Out or the Bntr- Vv liy the Snuih Supyuria (j realty. (From the San Antonio Texas Harald.] Every day brings cheering intelligence of the increasing popularity of the Greeley ticket in the North, and with a determined 1 united effort on the part of the people of | tho South, the military despot of the White House will bo dethroned. Hut there are too many Southern gentlemen among us who oppose Greeley because they think he will be no be'tor than Grant J 1 They are afraid, notwithstanding the let ter's professions, to trust him. Such men surely do not understand the situation. The supporters of the Greeley ticket iv the South do not propose to trust its canuidate. The electors chosen will not be compelled to cast their votes for Gree ley. We make no idle assertion, but speak lhat which we know to be true when we say that "no candidate who is not true to the South will receive her electoral vote." The Greeley movement, if successful, will insure a Democratic House in Congress. This will be the result of the bar gain between tho Democrats and the Liberals of the North, the former agreeing to support Greeley, while the latter are to help elect Democratic Con gressmen. Under such circumstances, if tho South ern electoral vote shall be cast for some true and trusted man whose name has not yet been mentioned in connection with the Presidency, the election will be thrown into the House of Representatives. Then the South will be ?afe. We know full well now to deal witli the Democratic leaders of the North. They have confidence in the leadership of the Southern States. We have but to assume a bold front, and they will again follow us like neglected curs that have found their long lost masters. No one need oppose Greeley because they fear to trust the heaven-forsaken old renegade. It is not proposed to trust him. The success of tho Sreeley ticket means the restoration of tho South to its former glory and greatness. It means the resto ration of our liberties. Then woe to the carpet-bag thieves and scoundrels who are oatine up our substance. The days of their hated presence are numbered! i.i:\kk vl.

Tho object of the meeting was to select and j recommend a sito for the speedy erection | of a market-house at the west end, which has been agitated for some time past, j Capt. John '1. Rogers was chosen as chair- ( man of the meeting, and J. C. Laughtou secretary. Mr. Williams suggested the _ corser of Cary and Pine streets as a suita- j ble site for tho new m irkct-house, and Mr. , E. F. Wallfer moved that the house be . located between Pine and Beverly and i Cumberland and Bclvidere streets. Speeches were made by Messrs. J. F. Meredith, J. C. Laughton and others in i favor of the site suggested by Mr. Wil- ; liams; and after a fair and full discussion j of tlie question it was agreed to recom- i mend the location at the corner of Cary i and Pine streets, only one vote being given i in opposition. On motion <jf T. Smith, Esq., it was resolved that a committee of three ■ be selected to inform the committee ap i pointed by the Council of the DC.ion of this meeting. Messrs. John 11. Gardner, Thomas Smith and E. 11. Wallfer, were i appointed such committee, and on motion the chairman was added to the same. Tho meeting adjourned about ten o'clock with , the sanguine expectation of having a mar ket-house at no distant day. 1 German International Money 1 Order. — The German international ' money-order system goes into effect to morrow, October first. The following aro i the rates of commission, in United States I currency, charged for issuing international i money-orders to be transmitted by the i postmaster at New York to Germany : On orders not exceeding $5, fifteen cents; over I $o and not exceeding $10, twenty-flvo j cents ; over $10 and not exceeding $20, f fifty cents ; over 820 and not exceeding $30, ' seventy-five cents; over $30 and not exceeding $10, ono dollar ; over $40 and _ not exceeding $50 one dollar and twenty five cents. The money on all orders will _. be sent from New York in gold, and of . course, orders issued by the postmaster 1 here are subject to reduction to the amount of the premium on cold in New York. The system will no doubt be a great con t venience to a large portion of our citizens. - especially to Germans who wish to semi i- money to friends or i stations still in fkder land.

Eaoh inspector did as he pleased; turned on and off the gas at will; contracted pri vate bills, and let some people run their _ gas bills from three to fifteen or seventeen „ months. To what extent the city has suf- t fered it is impossible to know; tho state of ~ things in existence having continued during \ three or four years. Four separata and dis- _ tinct forgeries, it is said, have been dis- , covered. Richmond is governe fby native _ Democrats, and not Radical carpet-bag gers." ■ Sons op Temperance.—Fidelity Divi sion elected the following officers for the "■ ensuing quarter, on Thursday night: Lewis Dickerson, Jr., W.

The public are respectfully invited to attend. r Richmond Theatre—The "Ticket of-Leave Man" was presented in a very r supenor manner Saturday night. We have never seen tho piece better played. J Tho audience was one of the best of the ■ week, and manifested greet satisfaction at tho extremely good acting of every member 5 ofthe cast. 1 Miss Jean Hosoier, as actress of fine abilities, will appear to-night as "Eliza- _ beth." We have no doubt she will draw a ( large audience, both for her own sake and that of the play. _ . A Gay Wintbk Anticipated.— ' From what we have seen and heard Rich mond will be unusually gay this winter, c It was our pleasure to attend a sociable not c more than a week ago, and oa steering our course in the direction of our friend's £ house, wo heart) so much music and dan- , cinq that we almost forgot or destination. _ iVe succeeded in finding it, however, and participated in the merry scenes until the wee small hours, after which we reached , home in a good aud healthy condition. i The Baltimoreans Preparing.— The Fifth Maryland National Guard are i preparing to receive the First Virginia I Regiment in handsome style on the nine- ' teenth of October. A banquet will be given at the new armory of the Maryland- i erg, and will be gotten up ia the most ie- < eherche style. i A ni in her of merchants of that city have j sigcilied their willingness to aid in paying the expenses of the banquet, but the Fifth . declined to share the expense or honor, and reso] ved to take the agreeable harden wholly j on themselves. Fire Last Night.—The alarm of fire ' about half-past one o'clock last night, whioh was turned in at box 12, at Rock- ! etta, was caused .by the burning of the i small frame dwolling of Mrs. Shanagan, corner of Fulton and State streets, Kock etts. No water being accessible, the fire men could render no efficient service in ex tinguishing the flames. Loss about $500; insured in the Virginia Home Insurance Company for that amount. Tile Circus To morboav.—Old John Robinson's Circus and Menagerie will ar rive in the city about daylight to-morrow inurniiig. Hiring the day it will form in procession and move through tho principal streets. The first exhibition will be given corner of Leigh and Second streets, at two o'clock to-morrow afternoon. Doors open at one. Runaway and Smash Up.—The horse attached to Dr. Parker's carriage took fright, yesterday afternoon, near the corner o? Clay and Seventh streets, at two dogs which were fighting in the street, aud succeeded in smashing the top of the vehi cle and slightly injuring the doctor, who waa in the carriage at the time. Hard Up.—The Greeleyites are cer tainly bard up. Tho city committee was offering free transportation to those who would attend a flag-raising meeting at Ches . tor to-day. Whether this expedient suc ceeded in raising a crowd or the flag, we are not advised. City Dispensary tor tub Poor.— ■ The city dispensary for the poor has been re . moved from W. F. Richardson's. Clay and I Seventeenth streets, to Messrs, Berriam & • McPhail's, corner of Main and Seventeenth streets.

St. Louis, September ;lo.—Satanta chief of the Kiowa Indians, and Big Tree, another notable chief of tha same tribe, who have been temporarily released from their prison in Texas, anived here to-day in custody, and were taken to the Everett House, where the Indians were stopping, During the day a council was held. The meeting of Satan ta and Big Tree was one of tho most affect ing scenes in Indian history. The ordinary atoicism gave entirely away, and they hugged and kissed each other and cried like children. Satanta made a spoech in which he said he felt like one risen from the dead. He referred to the talk he had had with Gov ernor Davis, of Texas, who told him he must work hard for peace, and influence his people. If he did this he should be released. He wanted his people and all other Indians to bo at peace with the whites ; to lot Texas alone and not go on tho war-path. It is not intended to take Satauta and Big Tree to Washington, but they will probably be placed lv the custody of tho United States Marshal and subject to orders from Washington. There is a strong de sire on the part of the Indians that Satanta be pardoned, and it is probable if he is, almost any desired forms can be made with them. — a Tlie "Fair" Jury San Francisco, Sept, 29.—The jury in the Fair case came into court yesterday for additional instructions on the question of the proof of insanity, which is the only ground of defence. Tho court instructed them that the evidence introduced to prove insanity must be sufficient to overcome the presumption of sanity. The iurvagain re tired and will remain out until Monday.
