COUNTY POLITICK.
MiMlißon Connty.
There was an extensive gathering of the
people of this county on the 23d inst., it
being court day. James Barbour, of Cui
peper. addressed the people in behalf of
Kemper, Withers and Daniel. Only a few
people went to the court-house to hear Bar
bour. He spoke about an hour, and in
dulged in the usual misrepiesentations of
Colonel Hughes and the Republican party.
There was no enthusiasm manifested dur
ing the entire meeting. The speeches of
Colonel Hughes and Chandler here last
court day wrought such a change that the
Conservatives tremble for old Madison.
Madison will astonish Kemper & Co. by the
vote she gives the Republican ticket on
November 4.
Orange County.
A gathering of Conservatives took place
at Locust Grove, in this county, on the 18th
inst. The county canvassers, and also Dr.
David Pannell, candidate for the house of
delegates, were present. The Conserva
tives had prepared themselves for a grand
glorification, but the programme was sadly
, marred by the appearance on the ground of
r Captain George Pannell. Republican candi
| date for the house, who proceeded at tbe
i request of the people to give an able expo
' sition of Republican principles and faith,
exceedingly acceptable to friend and foe
l alike, judging from the cheers that greeted
[ him. In this little forensic mill a number
of votes were gained for the Republican
side. The people present condemned the
efforts of the Conservative leaders to gag
' Oaptain P., and admired his pluck when
;. he would be heard.

The Republicans of tho city ot Rich
mond will meet to-night at the Custom
house, on Bank street, to have a good, jolly,
glorious old time. They will he addressed
by Hon. Horace F. Maynard, of Ten
nessee, Colonel Robert W. Hughes,
and General Williams C. Wickham.
These names of themselves would be suf
ficient to draw to their presence all
who hold true Republican princi
ples, as well as many of our oppo
nents who are honest, fair-minded, and
unprejudiced, to hear the truths of the
present exciting political campaign vividly
presented, fairly expounded, and argumen
tativcly discussed. But in addition, there
will be a grand procession headed by the
Hughes and Ramsdell Flambeau Club and
Professor Kessnich's band, the trees in the
Capitol square and Bank street trimmed
with Chinese lanterns, and a mammoth
balloon sent up just before the speaking
commences, at 7J o'clock.
Everybody, of whatever nat : onality.
color, dignity, sex, or polities is re
spectfully and earnestly invited to be pre
sent. Bring your wives, sweethearts i
mothers and sisters, and be assured that
no act of any kind will be suffered that
will in the least mar the harmony and good
feeling that we are sure will pervade the
vast assemblage.
Republicans! rise in your might and
make the enemy tremble to-night when
they behold the precursor of their utter
overthrow on the 4th of November.
Irish Republican Club, Atten
tion!— Meet at the Hughes and Rams
dell club-rooms promptly this evening at
6J o'clock.
The Hughes and Ramsdell club
meet at their club-room promptly this
evening at 6.3 o'clock. Every member must

A Friendly Inundation.—About
four hundred and fifty Friends from Indiana,
consisting of men, women and children,
arrived in this city early this morning by rail
from Washington en route for New Garden,
near Greensboro', N. C, where on the 31st
they will attend their yearly meeting.
Their manners are simple and unaffected;
they are a plainly dressed, honest looking
set of people, the men being in homespun,
with broad brimmed hats and wide coat
skirts; the women in plain but neat dress
es, with hod-shaped bonnets, and many of
them bearing chubby-faced children in their
arms. They appear to mind their own
business, so much so as to be almost clan
nish, keeping to themselves, although
polite and respectful when addressed,
fhey are from various parts of
the state of Indiana. These "yearly
meetings" of the Friends correspond to
the church conferences of other denomi
nations, when all their church affairs are
discussed, all being on an equality, with no
delegates, and no particular preference
shown to one individual more than anotner.
The excursion is under the management of
Friend Addison Coffin, a jolly large man,
and who seems well calcuLtid to cairy it
through successfully, being constantly on
the alert to tho wants of all. Round trip
tickets have been obtained from Indianapo
lis good for one year. The meeting will
continue in session about one week.
The James River and Kanawha
Canal.—The Journal of Industry
contains a communication signed "Hen
rico," relative to the above subject. Its
production is induced by the ''vigorous
effort to engage the Federal government, at
tho next session of Congress, in the work
of completing the James River and
'Kanawha canal,'' evidences of which our
readers have lately witnessed here in
Richmond and which "Henrico totally
objects to. He entertains a most exalted
opinion of the value of the canal to
Virginia and the United States, and thinks
that on the proper representation the
latter would finish the work and still leave
it in the possession of Virginia. The canal
has cost the state ten millions of dollars
and is a yearly drain on its resources.
Mr. John M. Daniel, late editor of The
Examiner, was in favor of letting the
water out of the canal and laying down
therein a double raHroad track.
The Dunlap Case.—A Columbus,
Ohio, paper says: "Captain Keeler has
received a letter from Alfred Shiftlett, of
Staunton, Vrginia, with whom Robert Dun
lap boarded at the time of his arrest, ask
ing for information as to the murderer of
James Carpenter. The tone of the letter
indicates that Dunlap's behavior while in
Staunton created a good impression with
his landlord."— Vindicator.

ton not long ago by Detective Jack

preceded it. To-day was the last entry

There seems to be no doubt that stam

one who has read the certificates from
Governor Caldwell, of North Carolina, and
many others from different parts of the Uni
ted States, can longer remain incredulous.
Besides, Dr. Moses has been ti stammerer
himself over forty years, and well known

Aid—Etc.
St. Louis, October 25.—Citizens of
Memphis refngeeing here held a meeting
last night and appointed fourteen com
mittees to solicit aid. The appeal for aid
says :
"Memphis is almost depopulated. Out
of 65,000 inhabitants only about 10,000
remain. Of these more than 1,000 are
now sick. 2,000 newly-made widows and
orphans are dependent on charity, aud
even though the scourge were to cease at
once, these helpless people must be as
sisted during the coming winter The
relief associations arc without funds, and
unless substantial aid is furnished, the poor
and sick must die of neglect or succumb to
hunger and want. Not only money, but
clothing, blankets, food and fuel are asked
for, that the hundreds of plague-stricken
and destitute families may be nourished and
kept trom starvation."

davit of the deceased lady's sister, but

Captain Jack's Gun,—Tho gun
which the defunct Modoc chieftain, Cap
tain Jack, fired during the late unpleasant
ness between him and the government, is
now in the office occupied by Geneial
Davis as his headquarters. It shows the
effect of hard service and apparently often
came in contact with hard rocks, for it is
scratched in every part, scarcely a spot an
eight of an inch in extent being untouched.
It is one of the old muzzle-luading rifles
of the paltern of 1803. The lock-plate
contains the following inscription: "U. S.
Colt'sPt. &F. A. MfK.Oo., Harford, Conn.,
1863." It ii rather an unwiedlv weapon,
and i 3 very long— about four and a half
feet. Tho barrel alone is forty inches in
length. It has three sights, one being
f marked for a hundred yards, another for
throe, and the third for live hundred yards.
The sling is mado of a piece of leather,
which was apparently broken in the center,
for at that point it is kept together by two
copper rivets, and it is fastened in the
bands by pieces of buckskin. The upper
band is made of tin, and is fastened to tho
ock with four small headless nails. This
ccc of mechanism is apparently the
work of the hero of the lava beds, nnd it
shows that he prided himself on how
neatly it. was done.— Portland (0.) llulle
