Sutherlin for the house of delegates. —A tournament and ball will he given at Manassas on the 18th instant; also, out; at Ccnlrevillc on the 15th instant, both under the auspices of tho colored frater —Hon. Thomas Setback Flournoy hasj been nominated for tho state senate by the Conservatives of Pittsylvania. Ho is the party so unmercifully used up by ex- Governor Wise in 1805, on tho Know- Nothing platform. —Portentous news comes from Har risonburg of yesterday's date : " Withers met Ramsdell and Fultz, and utterly de molished them." Now nominations by tho .Republicans arc now in order. —The Shenandoah Valley says: "We learn that several gentlemen from Ohio have been prospecting for iron in this neighfiorhood for several days. " They have found iron ore in large quantities which will yield from fifty to sixty per cent." —The colored man who was supposed to bo fatally injured when knocked oil" tho track near Milford two weeks ago has recovered from his injuries, under good medical treatment and kind attention from the employees of the Richmond, Freder icksburg and Potomac railroad company. —The Manassas Gazelle says : "A large party of coal dealers, ol Wyoming Valley, passed through Manassas last Wednesday morning to view a purchase recently made by them of fifteen thousand acres of tho West Virginia coal region. They speak enthusiastically of their proposed invest ments." —Mr. William S. Jones died at his resi dence in King George county, on Friday last, of cancer of the face. lie was the oldest citizen of the county, baton in his 08lh year. Ho served gallanlly in tho war of 1812 and from that time until his death fanned in King George. —Some (lend in human form entered the pasture of Mr. Walter Gillingham, near Accotink, ofT Friday night last, and cut and killed with somo sharp instrument a lino young bay mare belonging to that gen tleman. When found the maru was com- Betcly disemboweled, and had several ng, deep gashes about her head. This is the third marc Mr. Gillingham has lost this year, and the second one in this way. No punishment would bo too great to intlict upon the perpetrator of such an outrage. —Alexandria Sentinel. It was a most unfortunate circumstance for John 11. Mitchell (or John Mitchell Hippie) that ho permitted himself to bo elected to the United States Senate. "His vaulting ambition o'erlcapcd itself." If he tad been content to remain in private life, or even if he had been satisfied with an office less conspicuous and less honorable than that of a senator, tho misdeeds of his early life would have never boon paraded icfore the eyes of the world. He seems to be a man of fine talents, and in the new state of Iregon, remoto from the scene ot his early misfortunes, he might have lived a reputable life, and transmitted to his children an honorable name. Hut as soon as he chal lenged public criticism, by accepting a high oflice, the unsavory story Of his first marriage, and tho domestic difficulties which drove him to the west, found its way into tho newspapers, and directed tho attention of the whole country to the dis lonor which was attached to his name- The Republicans of Oregon, at their recent state convention, refused to demand his resignation, because they could find eilbing to condemn in his conduct since le became a citizen of that stale, and be cause they are unwilling to hold a man responsible for the errors of his ysuth, vho has teen so conspicuous for ability ml patriotism in his mature manhood. Ye rather admire their devotion to the man whom they have honored so highly ; hut we think that Mr. Mitchell would feel happier at his home in Oregon than in the senate chamber. He may be certain that the "resurrectionists" of the press, who dug up the story of his marriage, will not allow him to rest. Every speech that he makes will proroko insulting comment, and many of the newspapers will persist in calling him by the name, which-ho boro when a Pennsylvania lawyer. Another Geneva Award.—The dissolute old Duke of Brunswick has made a strange—that is for him strange—use of the immense fortune which he had accumu lated during his long life. Nobody knows precisely how much money ho left behind him, but the amount is variously estimated between three hundred and live hundred millions of francs. ,1 le had bequeathed the jWhole of this immense estate to the city of Geneva by tho terms of his will, which have recently been made known. True, when the war and the Communist rebellion drove lnm from Paris, which was Paris to him no longer when shot and shell and armed men took the place of the luxurious pleasures which he had lived since his duchy was absorbed into Prussia, ho retired to the Swiss metropolis, and it gave him shelter until the day of his death, but it might have been thought that there was little in that moral city, whose life is still tinctured with the ascetic morality of Calvin, to make it dear to tho heart of the old roue. Geneva is literally suffering from its embarrassment of riches. It is difficult to say what disposition shall bo made of the vast legacy. The benefactor is to be honored with a splendid mauso leum, but that will absorb but an infini tesimal tithe of the amount. Of all the epidemic diseases that spread terror and desolation over the earth, no one is so much dreaded as tho yellow fever. A largo percentage of those at tacked do not recover, and since it is high ly contagious, the unhappy victims are often left to face death alone. Sometimes they are deserted by their nearest friends, tho instinct of self-preservation proving stronger than tho ties of consanguinity and affection. Just now the people of Shreve port, La., are experiencing tho horrors of this terriblo epidemic. All communica tion with the city by public conveyances has been stopped, aud a dispatch received last night informs us of the death of a tel egraph operator, and the mortal illness of one of the telegraph managers, so that it is quite possible that even this means of learning the condition of the plague-strick en community will be cut off. Tho yellow fever has also made ittt appearance at Mem phis. —Here is an order |lately received by a music teacher: "Please send me the music to 'Strike tho harp in praise of God and as unique as the title page to a new piece Jefferson Ward to the Rescue.— The Old Dominion club rose in its might last night,and led by the indomitable Major E. B. Cook, president of the club, and candidate for city sergeant, took Old Market Hall by storm. After doing so, the Major presided with Iris usual grace and dignity. A Mr. Beard, of this city, was the first essayist. He announced himself a thorough Republi can, and then proceeded to prove I hat he was I Iso bygiving Conservative men and measures the most hearty endorsement. Mr. Beard deals in spirits, and there was during his harangue some very uneasy ones about him, caused by frequent visits to the club room, and to Frischkom's, Sadler's and Gubernator's. Finally Mr.' Beard shaved himself down to a lino point and exuded, much to the relief of his numerous and vociferous, if not respectable, auditory. Colonel Joseph Mayo, jr., then mounted tho rostrum and gavo a brief blast on his Democratic bugle. His oratorical donator was conate and finished, and delivered in a style to "bring down the house,"—not physically, but metaphorically, Captain John S. Wise gushed in a spread eagle effort of sixty minutes dura lion, and he concluding, tho "awjienco" was dispersed with a benediction by the president of the club. A correspondent says of the above meet ting : "The Old Dominion club is under the management of the following knights of tho locust, practiced clubbitcrs, viz.: Captain Jack Wren, Dan Wren, Bob Craddock and Jim Tyler ; and the attor ney of the club is Samuel M. Pago, who, when not politicating tho club, is chiefly engaged in hunting sample merchants. (An honest man must get a living.) " Major (?) Cook, a very good auctioneer, but a failure as a politician, presided, and introduced Colonel (?) Beard, who, accord ing to The Enquirer, 'commanded the care ful and marked attention of the meeting throughout.' Beard ' commanded 1 a few years ago a colored regiment in the late war, but whether he distinguished himself as a warrior history saycth not. He is very much like Mr. Corker in Dombey k Sou, and when he speaks makes a line display of teeth. As an orator he will pass perhaps for 'a sounding brass and a tinkling cym bal.'" The Approaching Jewish Holi days.—On Saturday the services in tho synagogues of the city were all prepara tory to the great Hebrew holidays which begin a week hence. The rabbis in their sermons admonished their congregations to penitence and charity during the coming week, which, as the last week before the Ten Penitential Days, which begin with the Hebrew new year, is surrounded with solemn traditions, and is piously observed by the orthodox Hebrews. Penitential prayers are recited every moruing at an early hour, the trumpet is blown in tho synagogues, and other services preparatory to the most solemn holidays of tho Ile biews. With next Friday will begin the Hebrew New Year, or according to the Jewish calendar, the first day of the year 6G34, since the creation of the world. This is the most important festival of tboso of tho ancient faith. It will bo the first of the month Tishri, which begins the sacred year, the civil year begining with the month Nisaw, and dates from the day when the hosts of Israel achieved their in dependence of Pharoali, and resumed their position as a nation. During the mouth fishri there aro several impor tant holidays. After the festival of the new year will follow tho days of repen tance, which immediately precede the Day of Atonement, which occurs on the tenth day of the month. At this time all differences, of whatever nature, are settled, and the occasion is one of much solemnity. Four days after the atonement the feast of tabernacle will begin and continue for eight days. Formerly, and at the present day, the Hebrews dwelt in tents erected on their premises. After the feast of tabernacles comes that of rejoicing over the law, that law which was transmitted by Moses. Emuer Week. —The present week is designated in the calendar of the Episcopal Church as Ember week, and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of this week aro days of abstinence. These Ember days recur at each of tho four seasons, spring, summer, autumn urA winter, being the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday after the first Sunday in Lent, alter the feast of Pentecost, after September 14th; and, after December 13th the Sunday following these Ember days of special intercession, are tho stated periods for holding ordina tions by the bishops of the church, and the prayer-book provides special prayers to be used daily in all tho churches during Ember week "for those who arc to bo admitted to holy orders." On next Sunday, which will be tho festival of St. Matthew, the Apostle and the Evangelist, it is usual for the bishops to hold ordina tions for the admission to the office of deacon or priest of any candidate who may be in readiness, and who may have passed a proper examination. The selec tion of St. Matthew's day as ono of the stated periods for tho ordination of min isters would seem to be peculiarly appro priate, in view of the example, which, according to tho sacred record, St. Matthew gives to all who would be minis ters of Christ iv forsaking all for his raas tsr. The Gospel for tho day records that as Jesus passed " Ho saw a man named Matthew, sitting at tho receipt of customs, and he saycth unto him, follow inc. And he arose and followed him." American Pharmaceutical As sociation. —Large quantities of pharma, ceutical apparatus, appliances, materials products, &c, have arrived, and been ar ranged in the Virginia Opera-house, to be displayed in the exhibition to be given by the American pharmaceutical association, which meets in this city at 3 o'clock p. in. Our druggists are making energetic arrange ments to receive and entertain their visit ing brethren, of whom, judging from tho appearances about tho hotels last night, the city is full. Oakwood Cemetery.—Whilo so much is being done for the west end of the city we hope that the council will not for get that the eastern portion of our town has an equal claim on its bonelicoiit regard The people wautawids-paved or macadam ized street or road leading from the west brow of Church Hill into Oakwood Ceme tery, and agitation will nut cease until they Accident.—Yesterday, about (io'clock p. in., a little daughter of Mr. Gray, who resides at the corner of Second and Clay streets, fell from the upper back porch of his residence into the lower porch, a dis tance of about eight feet. She was consid erably bruised about the body, though not tol. It seems that at one of the houses ovil famo name, etc., in that locality, a uui ber of parties were having a high old tin cursing and swearing. A certain policema lin perambulating iv that direction, hearir I tho noise, cautiously approached from tl rear as he was afraid to attack from tl; front owing to superior numbers. He w« treading lightly, exercising due catitio therein, when ho noticed some of thedar objects before him in a stooping posture He immediately eased himself behind tree, and just as he did so, it rained rock* bricks, Ac Old blunderbuss was brough into position, and one shot from him inti tho midst of the assembly succeeded ii clearing the space. Quiet reigned supreim in that locality the remainder of the night The Seconds in the Late Duel.- Messrs. John S. Meredith, Win, L. Roynll, Wm. R. Trigg and Wm. B. Tabb, seconds in tho late McCarty-Mordecai duel, who stand indicted for murder by the grand jury of tho hustings court, made their appear ance in the hustings court to-day at one and a half o'clock, nt which lime it was supposed tho case would bo called, but after a session in chambers of about three-quarters of an heur be tween Judge Guigon and counsel for the accused, their cases were postponed until iij o'clock this afternoon. We learn that their counsel will probably make a motion for the postponement of tho trial to the October term, in view of the fact that the supreme court has not yet acted upon the appeal taken in the case of Dr. Cullen, one of tho witnesses who refused to tes tify - MISCHIEVOUSNESS THAT SHOULD BE Punished.—Sunday night last a party of young men, who were evidently on a drun ken tare, tore down the sign of a Main street merchant and threw it in the street. Such miscreants as these certainly deserve punishment; for, independent of the loss sustained by the merchant of his sign, which was very valuable, as it was a re volving one, they are gross violators of the Sabbath. We understand that the police have a clue to theso parlies, and possibly at an early day they will meet their re ward at the hands of justice. Warwick County.—a gathering of the Republican voters of this county took placo at the Courthouse September Gth, which was acceptably and ably addressed by Rev. J. M. Dawson, of Williamsburg, Virginia, Mr. William Brown and others. Resolutions were adopted complaining of the action of the convention held at York town, Virginia, August 29th, which by voting for Austin Carter, when instructed to vote for another party, (J. M. Dawson), effected tho nomination of Dr. D. M. Morton. The New Reservoir Building.— The addition to the reservoir building, some forty by sixty feet, at the west end, is pro gressing satisfactorily. The basement, of James river granite, has been laid, and the superstructure of brick is nearly completed. A. very powerful turbine wheel has been fixed in position, and tho accessories to make it effective are being supplied with all due haste. The site for the proposed addition to the reservoir has not yet been definitely determined on. feEIiSONAL.— The Maryland Prince rgian says that "Colonel Daniel, the Conservative candidate for attorney gene ral of Virginia, has gone to attend the horticultural exhibition at Boston—carry ing with him some of the finest specimens of pears and peaches ever seen in the old commonwealth." We think there is gome mistake about this announcement. Hon. John Ambler Smith is at the St. James holel, Washington, D. C. Builihno About the City.—The houses going up include innumerable wooden structures of all sizes and designs and for all purposes, brick residences, school-houses, stores, manufactories, ware houses, Ac. Besides the new buildings, there is a general remodeling ami enlarg ing of old structures going on, which adds much to the handsome appearance of the rooms, churches, residences, &c. Penitentiary Subjects.—Halifax county furnished Colonel Strother with tho following boarders yesterday: Sam uel White, for a term of one year, for unlawful cutting, &c.; Squire Royall for onu year for house breaking, and Patrick Burns for two years for unlawful cutting, Marine.—Clewed to-day at the Custom-house, American brig Mary Alleiion, Captain 0.

Mr. Dominick Murray in tho chief role. Real Estate.—All real estate whose owners have not paid the taxes thereon will be sold to satisfy the same at the sev eral November and December courts. Parties owning this sort of property had better ante up and save trouble. Scholastic—Tho examination of pupils who desire to enter the high school, other than those promoted from the first grammar grade, will take place on Mon day, tho ~2d instant, in the high school building. Quick Work.—The hustings couit has only been in session eleven days so far this term, and yet it has disposed of 17 felony and 15 misdemeanor cases.

The English-speaking world has to a great extent abandoned tho legiti mate drama and is now pleased only with sensational exhibitions and with operas or burlesque.

ARCHHiiSHOP Bayley, of Baltimore, has made a very sensible suggestion with releienee to the liqour question, and one which is specially interesting as showing how a prelate would interfere with intem perance. The position which ho assumes is that any real good government would enforce an inspection of liquors or stop their sale altogether. By inspection he means not a ganger's inspection, but a technical analysis, which would at once expose the poisonous compounds with which liquors are adulterated, and which are responsible, not only for the quality deleterious to health, but, to a large extent, for that influence which maddens and dcuiouizes men and leads them to the commission of crime. There can be very little doubt that a law which would enforce such an inspection as this and punish its violator by confiscating and destroying his liquors, with the additional penalty of line and imprisonment, would go far towards reducing the present increase of crime. It is at least a much more E radical idea than the theory that men can c legislated sober. Here and there about tho street corners, and around the doors of places of amusement, you will see a lot of urchins, some of them decently clad and presenting a respectable appearance, who are en gaged in asserting their manhood by putt ing away at execrable cigars. It is fair to surmise that their anxious mammas are not aware of the foul habits their darling boys pick up and practice outside of the pareu tial roof, but for their benefit they should know that it is stated that a French physician has investigated the effect of ' smoking on thirty-eight boys between the ase of nine and fifteen, who were , addicted to the habit. Twenty-seven , presented distinct symptoms of nicotine poisoning. In twenty-two there were seiious disorders of the circulation, indi gestion, dullness of intellect, and a marked appetite for strong drinks. In three was heart effected ; in eight a decided deteriora tion of blood; in twelve there was frequent opistaxis ; tcu had disturbed sleep; and four had ulceration of the mucus membrane of the mouth. It is easy, then, to see how the ranks of the drunk ards and dissolute men " about town" are recruited, when there are so many boys in training for delirium tremens and the horrors of dissipation.— LouiavOle Journal.
