The deputy keepers at the Raymond-street jail complain that the alleged murderess of Charles Goodrich, Kate Stoddard, is a very impertinent prisoner. Tbey say that her demands for attendance arc very great, and much annoyance is, therefore, occasioned her jailors, who are anxious to oblige her. Rev. Dr. Bass, a few days since, accompanied by some ladies, called at the jail,having some flowers and fruit for her. Deputy Sheriff Stinson went up stairs to the debtors' room, in which she is con fined, and informed her that there were visitors who desired an audience with her waiting below. She replied that she did not want to see them, but upon learning that they had flowers and fruits for her she signified a remarkable readiness to receive them. Subsequently Stinson again went to the door of her room to notify her that ex- Chief of Police Campbell desired_;jan interview with her. Finding the door tied on the inside the jailor cut the strings and entered the apartment. Looking Angrily towards the intruder, Kate seized a book in a threatening man ner nnd demanded what he wanted. On being told, sho replied ; "I don't care to see him. I want you to know that lam a lady, and I don't want any one to come into my room without first knocking aud asking permission. If you try that again I'll complain to the sheriff." The efforts of the Conservative journals in Virginia to belittle the influ ence and importance of tho Republican press of the.state at the expense of The National Republican are as foolish as they are transparent. It is plain that the mo tive which prompts them is simply a de sire to arouse a feeling of jealousy within the ranks of tho Republican party—a matter which, under existing circumstan ces, they will fail to accomplish. These papers, including the Richmond State Journal, Lynchburg Press, Norfolk Day-Book, Valley Virginian, and Vir ginia Press, are not only ably conducted, but aro too thoroughly devoted to the success of the cause for which we are all struggling to be influenced by this exceedingly transparent attempt to create a division in the party. An unprejudiced comparison of the contents of the journals mentioned with those of the opposition gives a result decidedly iv favor of the former. While the Conservative papers are all filled with sound, fury, and bombast, or empty and illogical appeals to the basest prejudices of the past, their Repub lican cotemporaries are replete with cogent argument and the intelligent discussion of the living issues of the present.— Washing ton National Republican. The Late Beau Hickman.—On Sat urday, Mr. Dorsey Clagett, who humanely started a subscription list to raise funds to give the remains of Beau Hickman decent burial, and whose efforts in that direction led to the discovery of the foul act of mu tilation which had been perpetrated upon the body, rccci.ed a telegraphic dispatch from Mrs. Martha P. Eaton, a sister of the deceased, date- at VVarrenton, N. 0., thanking him for his kindness and humani ty, and directing that the remains be hand somely interred. Further instructions are expected by letter, and it is believed that some of the friends of the deceased will soon nriivo in the city to look after the body and to settle his affairs.— Washington Republican. . ___ The Bagpipe that "gie" the Scotch mu sic at the battle of Bettie Bridge (now Gil christ) in July, 1781, ia in possession of Mr. Duncan Bethtinc, of this county.

CITY NEWS > Monthly Meeting of the Metho dist Sunday-School Society.—Thi regular monthly meeting of tho Methodisl J Sunday-school society was held yesterday at Kroad-street church, President T. L. D, Walford in the chair, James B. Riddick, - assistant secretary. The meeting wa_ - opened with the song, by the liroad-street school, of " All hail tho powor of Jesus' name," and prayer by Rev. W. O. Lurap i kin, of Manchester. The meeting was then ' addressed by the ;Rev. Dr. Edwards—sub > ject: Knowledge of the Scriptures, -Tim othy, iii. and 15, " From a child thou hat.. - known the scriptures which are able to i make thee wis* unto salvation." He dis , couraged the present system of teaching in the Sabbath-schools, (known as the Mini priss system), and argued its unfuvorable ' ness as compared with the system of years by-gone, that of memorizing tho scriptures, 1 such as repeating of verses in the Bible and hymns. Mr. J. D. K. Sleight then ad dressed the meeting. Subject: "Happi ' ness." liis address was replete with sound argument and illustrated with scenes and incidents of almost daily life. Rev. Dr. J. L. M. Curry, then delivered the clos ing address. He took no text proper, it we remember aright, but tho general one of the Sunday-school. He urged the impor tance of all members of the churches at tending Sabbath-school, saying that it was a place for the old as well the young. He believed in God's people all being at work, and this was a field in which all could do so. He didn't like to preach the gospel from the pulpit. lie always felt as if there was a great gulf between him and the peo ple when he was in the pulpit and as if he had to preach over this; he wanted to get in the midst of the people so that he could feel more at home. And this, he con tinued was the great reason why Sunday school teaching was so effective ; teacher and scholar were brought close together. The report of the '.secretary shows that tlie avcrago attendance of the schools for tho past month was !)OS. Reports were received from two afternoon mission schools that had been recently organized. "The Belle Isle school," Mr. 0. 0. Wal ter, of Clay-street, superintendent. This school was formerly in operation, but was discoiitiinicd. On July last when Mr. Walter took charge of it it numbered 25. The school has more than doubled its num ber in two months. It is now in a very prosperous condition. Prayer-meetings are held each afternoon after the session of the school.antl several scholars havo been con verted. The officers and teachers of this school are principally from Clay-street school. The othor ia called "The Courtney Mis sion School,''named in honor of the late Rev. Mr. Courtney. It is situated on Union Hill, and is under the charge of Union Station church. Messrs. George W. Armistead, A. Hasker, and Uarman Woodward are its officers. This school was organized the 7th of last month with two scholars; it now numbers eighty. These figures speak for themselves as to its prosperity. At intervals during tho ex ercises Broad-street school, led by Choir ister Turner, rendered in a creditable manner a number of sweet and delightful songs. Tho meeting was closed with prayer by the Rev. Dr. Granbory. The next meeting of the society will be held at Clay-street church, the second Sunday in October. Eligibility to Vote and Hold Office.—The new constitution of Vir ginia in prescribing who shall not vote under it, includes in that category : "AH persons who havo sent or accepted a challenge to fight a duel, or aided or assisted in any manner in fighting a duel, since the adoption of the present constitu tion." It seems to be clear that the party who cannot vote is by that fact rendered incapable of holding an office of trust, or emolument, either under the city oi state government. And it seems to be equally clear that all who participated in the late unfortunate duel botween Messrs. Mordecai and McCarty are not only deprived of the privilege of voting, but are, by virtue of their participation in the affair of honor alluded to, precluded from holding any offico of honor, trust or emolument either under the city or state government. This state of things is to be regretted, as it will deprive the city of tho valuable ser vices of Dr. J. S. D'Orsay Cullen, for several years past physician to the Alms house, at a salary of ~200 per annum. Had the Doctor been merely a surgeon in attendance, whose object was to ameliorate possible human suffering, he might not have been amenable to tho prohibitory clauses of the new constitution, brt it ap pears that he considered himself more than th is,as hehas had for soma time a case before our higher courts, where, in seeking to get rid of a judgment of tho hustings court di recting him as a witness to divulge what he knew of the duel, ho opposes it by every legal subterfuge on the express grounds that by testifying he would criminate himself, thereby admitting his participation in the fatal duel. Tho cily council will no doubt take an early occasion to elect his sucessor. We_ hear that there is a number of applicants for tho position, which is considered very desirable, there being little or nothing to do. The Meeting of the Hughes and Ramsdell Flambeau Cluk Satur day Night.—Tho new club room of this thriving political organization was crowded Saturday night by a highly intelligent audi tory, drawn thither by the announcement of the presence on the occasion of Hon. C. P. Ramsdell, Republican candidate for ' lieutenant-governor, and other distinguished 1 speakers, who were expected to give expo * sitions of Republican policy and principles 1 governing the contest now going on in Vir ginia for- the gubernatorial succession. " The club was successively addressed in } concise, able and argumentative speeches 1 by Hon C. P. Ramsdell, Colonel John ll ' Gilmer, Franklin Steams, esq., nnd Colo nel John R. Popham. There was a fresh . ness and originality about tho remarks of J each of these gentlemen which elicited the ' most hearty, frequent and deserved ap plause A largo number of new natne. were added to the club by election, ant 1 the names of a number of candidates wil 3 be acted on at the next regular meeting - Regular meetings occur every Tuesday f night. The club is composed abnos ' exclusively of working men, and it ii X not known that thero is a single aspiran ' for stato or federal offico embraced withii • its membership. r Marine.—There was entered at thi t custom-house to-day fho German barl _* Goethe, Captain Staenken, from Nev d York, to load with tobacco for Bremen s also the Norwegian Wig Freidig, Captaii n Hansen, from Baltimore, to load with floi for Rio Grande do Sul. Baptist Sunday-School Associa tion.—Tho regular monthly meeting ol the Baptist Sunday-school Association was - held yesterday afternoon, at the Manches e ter church, J. B. Winston, president, 01. t way D. Browne, secretary. The meeting , was opened with singing by tho Manches • ter school, and prayer by Rev. J. T. Wal > lace. The report of the secretary shows * that there was an average attendance for t the past month of 215 officers and teachers, ' and 1,605 scholars. There were six con - versions in the schools the past month, two i in the Second church, two in Leigh-street, • and two in Fulton; there were also four • deaths reported, two in Leigh-street, ono I in Sydney, and one in Fulton. Interesting * and instructive addresses by Mr. .1. B. • Watkins, Rev. Dr. Jeter, Mr. E. B. t Spence, and E. Gathright. The exercises were interspersed with - sweet and appropriate singing by Manches i ter school. The meeting of the associa tion was closed with prayer by the Rev. J. B. Jeter, who offered special prayer in ' behalf of the pastor of Manchester church, Rev. D. B. Winfree, who is confined to his bed by sickness. The next meeting of the association will be held at Sidney church the second Sabbath in October. A Valuable Work.—"Picturesque America ; or, The Lap* 4l . We Live In," the well-known pictorial and letter-press de lineation of the mountains, rivers, lakes, forests, water-falls, shores, canyons, val leys, cities, and other picturesque features of our country, edited by William Cullcn Bryant, the poet, and now passing through the publishing house of D. Applcton it Co., New York, is being introduced to the attention of our citizens for the second time by Mr. John M. Colby, of Mobile, Alabama, agent. The city will be thor oughly canvassed, as the work is now so far advanced as to exhibit a very large portion of the country, of- which many portions of Virginia are extensively illustrated. This is the fine work for which Dr. George W. Bagby was.some time since agent in this city. Death of Braxton uarliok.— This gentleman, a prominent and much re spected citizen of New Kent, where, dur ing the course of a long and useful life, he had been honored by his fellow citizens with many offices of trust and honor, died yesterday at his residence near the Court house in the 6-d year of his age. Ho was presiding justice of the court of his county for many years under tho ancient regime. He deserved and retained the confidence and respect of his neighbors and acquain tances from early youth till death cut short his useful life. In all the relations of life he was amiable and exemplary. His demise has caused a very general expres sion of sorrow throughout New Kent, for everybody knew him. His funeral will take place at his late residence to-morrow. Hustinos Court.—The barbers' case was decided by the hustings court to-day in the case of Jacob Guvcrnater, one of the parties indicted for shaving on the Sabbath. The judge said under tho statute the defendant had no right to carry on secular work on the Sabbath in shaving. Two bills of exception were filed and thirty days allowed in which to appeal to the supreme court. The fine, $2, desig nated in the statute was imposed. Guver natcr's was a test case, twenty others being presented with him. William T. Bailey qualified as a, notary public in this court to-day. Clarke County.—A correspondent from Berryville, in this county, says Colo nel Withers was there on the 10th inst., and made what his few listeners called " a very eloquent address," but it was the same old coon he paraded at Win chester and every other place where he has orated during the present campaign, including references to himself as tho cham pion of tho white man's party, the " Un derwood constitution," carpet-baggers, scalawags, negroes and the anecdote about one bull and the boy. The Colonel's harangue made a very small impression. The Fair Bulletin.— Wm. B. Ed ins, late publisher of The Journal of Com merce, is getting up an advertising sheet, to be called Tho Pair Bulletin, of which ho intends to distribute 10,000 copies during Pair week on the grounds and at the hotels. The Pair Bulletin will contain cards of the largest business houses in the city ; also the Stato Pair executive board for 1873, and other information useful to visi tors to the city. One-quarter is now ready for the press and tlie other three quarters are being rapidly filled.

The horses stopped of their own motion, and the wounded man was carried off for medical treatment. Commission de Lunatico Enqui- RENDO. —Washington W. Davis was be fore Justice White to-day, charged with assaulting and threatening his wife. The witnesses in the case testified that they believed him to be of unsound mind, and his wife, who was among the number, tes tified that sho entertained fears of losing her life if she remained with him ; where upon he was committed to jail and a I'tiiii '. mission de lunatico inquirendo ordered in his case. » Charoed with Felon v.—John * Phelps, Robert S.

Johnston's news and music store, 918 Main street, to-day : At Ga.m. 48 ; 9 a. m. 68 ; 12 m. 70 ; 3 p. m. 74. These present mornings have a frosty air about them. Tho remnant of last summer's stock of clothing is rapidly finding its way into packing boxes, while the demand for blankets is increasing. Alois Rick, the well known pavier, has returned from the Vienna exposition and resumed operations in the line of his profession. He says the Vienna beer is not as good as Yuengling's Richmond arti cle. Supernatural graces may and do triumph over the worst conditions of the flesh ; but it takes the fortitude of a saint to endure the miseries entailed upon a di gestion prematurely demoralized by detest able cookery. Enquiry is frequently made for the speeches delivered by General Kemper wilh such astounding effect, according to tho reports of Conservative correspondents. Will not The Enquirer publish somo o? them that those not so fortunate as to hear them may have the opportunity of reading them ? Let not the light be hid under a bushel. MEETINGS.
