■ rsW TO Ai't bKTlhKK*.~ThectrculaUon t. tbme «■»> wjl.rre m that of any other Daily paper in the c.ty of Richmond. Ii titaerefore preaUy superior to any other •• a m»dtum of adTertistnr RICHMOND. VA.i Tifudnr .Morning, October 5» IMR THE FAIRFIELD RACES. We rqoice, from the bottom of our hearts, to see from the advertisement of Mr. Belcher, that the good old days of sport, as connected with that noblest of animals, the horse, are about to find their parallel in the present sen eon. We rejoice to see, that though she may have abandoned it for awhile. Virginia has no intention of relinquishing for ever, her claim jo superiority in this particular. It has been to usa subject of extreme mortification, to see how totally inattentive, ef late years, the pub lic has become to the rearing of horses, once the favorite amusement ol the \ irginia farmer. We have seen our racers decay, from year to year ; we have seen the attendants on the race-course dwindle down to scores, where there used to be thousands ; we have seen, time after time, races where there was no con test, and where one horse just walked off be fore the others, leaving them a sightless dis tance in the rear. All these things are morti fying to any true Virginian—to anyone who takes a pride in the ancient reminiscences con nected with his country —who has heard of Florizel and Snapdragon, of Sir Archie, Du roc and Sir Alfred, the last of whom ran, in our day, live four-mile heats in a day—who has seen Eclipse and Henry, and remembers Tree-Hill in all its glory, when thousands at tended the races, when the stand was thronged whh the beauty and fashion of the city and its vicinity, all eagerly intent upon the sport, all as deeply enlisted in it, as though the lives of their lovers or their brothers were stuked upon the issue. Then, between the beaux and the belles, there was betting of gloves, and other trinkets. The ladies looked their prettiest, and the gentlemen did ditto. Glorious old Tree-Hill ! The mention of you recalls some of the sunniest hours of our existence ; for we ■were young in those days, and had not tried every possible sensation until they had all become stale and flat. There is a great hope that these days are about, in part, at least, to return. There has been a revival of the old spirit within the last three or fjur years, and as the horses were wanting, except in a few instance?, many gen tlemen, unconnected with the tuif, have set in to raising them. The result is, that Virginia begins, already, to return to her ancient supre macy. The number of horses at Fairfieldand Broad Rock, under training, amounts already to twenty-five. Unusually fine sport may, there fore, be expected to-day, and for the rest of the week. The Jockey Club Purse is larger than it has been for u number of years. It reuches $100. Let the public but encourage the sport, and next year it will be doubled. Let but the races, this fall, be tolerably interesting, let but some lew of the heats be broken, and the number of the Jockey Club will be increased to one hundred. Well, from all we can learn, such will be the fact. There are good horses at Fairfield, and a plenty of them. But no one is so much belter than another that he will be allowed to walkover the track. There will be a contest, so we learn, there will be »port in every race run this week. As the weather is fine, we hope there arcfjw, who really love sport, that will deny themselves ihe pleasure of this de lightful recreation. They will see fun,depend upon it. We wish we could persuade the young ladies to go; but we are too far ad yanced in bachelorhood for that. Perhaps some of the "nice young men," who have more winning ways than we have, can bring them over. They mny tell them that their mothers used to go to Tree-Hill, and though they may rot venture to say that they are no better than their mothers, yet we will say it for them — Their presence always adds animation and in terest to a scene like this, and is attractive to almost every body, old or young. Their smiles and encouragement can revive the good old Virginia sport in a year. We assure such of them as never saw a race—and very few of the present generation have, that they have no idea what it is. The ball-room is nothing com pared to it. We cannot close this article without a tri bute to Mr. Belcher. He has held on to the old sport ill its darkest hours. His motto has been "don't give up the ship."' Through tri als and tribulations he has still held on. He has always been as liberal as he has been firm. Truly, if such a man dies not deserve encour agement, we know not who does. But, let this be borne in mind, there will be fine sport at Fairfield this week. SMUT IN WHEAT. In another column, the reader will find two communications, addressed to Mr. Rufhn, the editor of the Planter, relative to an antidote against this fatal disease in Wheat. The pro cess is the simplest possible. It consists mere ly in soaking a certain quantity of blue-stone, in a given quantity of water, and immersing the wheat in it. Blue-stone is so cheap and the modut operandi is so easily understood, that if any farmer should fail to try it, and should afterwards have the smut in his wheat, we should not feel the least sorry for him. With respect to the gentlemen, who wrote these let ters, it is [proper to say that they are both men of high intelligence, so we learn, and ex cellent practical fanners. We learn from sev eral apothecaries here, that they have for years teen in the habit of selling larg« quantities of blue-stone for this purpose, to persons residing in North Carolina. As these communicntions will not appear in the forthcoming Nj. of the Planter, it is proper to explain how we came by them.— They were received by Mr. Bernard, from Mr. Ruffio, too lite for insertion, the Planter hav ing been already delayed beyond its time, be ing very full of matter, and in fact being under the press. Mr. Bernard saw at once their im portance, and the necessity of giving publicity to them forthwith, as the seed-time was rap- Idly approaching. If he had waited for anoth er No. he would have been too lute. There fore, though it certainly wouid .have been beneficial to his Periodical, to have published it first, that was with him a small considera tion, anJ be banded it over to us. THE METHODIST CONTROVERSY. The Circuit Court of the United State# for the District of New York, decided, in Novem ber last, as is well known, that the Church South was entitled to an equal share of the property with the Church North, when it was held by the two as one establishment. A commissioner was appointed to ascertain the amount of this property, of what it consisted, its value, etc. The commissioner has reported (under eiceptions from the Church South) on the matters referred to him. The amount of property affected by the litieation was, $502,- 235 75, in 1845, and in 1852, it was $590,080 55. All this property constitutes, we believe, w hat is called the Methodist Book Concern, and belongs to the whole Church, though the Church North is anxious to grab the whole of it.The following amounts have been paid out to Northern beneficiaries : . Paid Paid Total Years. Beneficiaries. Bishops. Pavmt's In 1840 #11000 4,350 $18,350 00 " 1847 11.000 4,350 15,350 00 " 1848 12,300 4,750 17,050 00 » 1549 0,100 4.750 10,850 00 " 1850 19,700 4,750 24,450 00 " 1851 22,200 4,750 20,950 00 As the Northern Church have the property in thtir possession, oi course, in all that tim<>, the Southern Church got not a cent. Before the separation, the entire organization was composed of seven Bishops, 4,828 Preachers, (Circuit.) and over a million of members. Tiiey were thus divided : Southern members, 400,553 Northtru members, 639,000 1,100,019 The beneficiaries of the fund, upon the sepa ration, were chiefly the travelling preachers, and the Court proportioned the amount to be divided according to the number of such preachers in each section. This caused the South to except, and the Court were engaged during the latter part of last week in the trial ol ttie cause. It is believed thul it will iinully go before the Supreme Court. CANAD IA N It EC IPKOCITY. Hon. John Young, one of the Executive Councillors, on resigning his ofiice, on the 18th, addresses a letter to the Provincial Sec retary, in which he touches upon the proposed retaliatory policy. Hi? views are nearly the same with those set forth by us the other day. Hj thinks it will only have the effect of dri ving away the Western trade, and sending it all, by the lakes and railroad?, to New York, and that it will add greatly to the cost of all the articles which we furnibli them, which are, in fact, nearly all they use. He thinks it would be better to open the St. Lawrence, abolish agricultural duties, start a reciproctil trade with the British West In dies, and con struct a canal to connect the St. Lawrence with Lake Charaplain. Having always been a free trade,, man, he cannot consent to enter upon the retaliatory policy. Mr. Young read this letter, and the accep tance thereupon, and followed with a speech, in which he stated that the whole exports of Canada very little exceeded £1,000,000 ster ling, while the articles imported from the Uni» ted States alone, and which are necessaries, amount to largely upwards of£ooo,ooo. The people of the upper prot ince paid, last year, £45,000, at the present rates, and a3 they were obliged to have the commodities, the tax o« the cousumer would be enormously in creased by the proposed policy. The opening of the St. Lawrence would attract an enor mous trade, and soon render Canada indepen dent of America. P. S.—Since the above was written, we find the following in the New York Journal of Commerce : Reciprocity vs. Retaliation.—The To ronto Colonist denouncvs ihe proposed system of"monopoly and retaliation," in respect to the United States, and ss vs that Upper Canada will not submit to have its interest thus sacri ficed. "Oar trade with the United States (says the Colonist) has assumed an importance that cannot now be subjected to ar*iiicial impedi ments without producing serious consequence to ourselves; and the Government will be bold, indeed, that will attempt to sacrifice the commercial and agricultural interest of one half ot Canada in the way proposed." AUSTRALIA. It will be seen that the news from this coun try continues to be favoraUlr, and that the em igration from the British Isles is greatly on the increase. From the accounts brought by the last arrival, it appeared that 1000 persons were embarking weekly. This intelligence will, doubtless, greatly increase the number. A large emigration from this country may also be expected. According to a statement in the N. Y. Herald, the number that had left that port (or Australia, from the Bth of June to the 20th of September, was l(i87, and the number of vesaela, 11. The fever is fully as high now in England as it was in this country when Cali fornia was first discovered. I here is one questiou upon which we have pondered with considerable doubt. When the Spaniards first began to explore the mines of South America, Spaiu was the most powerful, as well as the most gallant, nation in Europe. From that period may be dated her decline.— The greater purt of the gold lands of the world is now in possesion of the Anglo Saxon race. Is that race to follow in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessor, and -full in ' the general massacre of gold ?'' COMMISSIONER TO CHINA. The Hon. Humphrey Marshall, Commis sioner to China, sailed from New York, in the steamship Pacific, for Liverpool. He will there take the steamer for the Mediterranean and proceed to Shanghai by the overland route. All must hope that he may be success ful in increasing the good feeling which is al ready entertained towards this country above all others, by the Chinese. Importa.it at all limes, the good will of the Chinese has be come, since the possession of California, and the immigration from China, f ar , nor 3 ho . portant than ever. That he will so succeed, all that we have heard of the man entitles us to believe. YVe have frequently alluded to the immense field for our commercial enterprise oiooo B f U,ire r ,iC J eili,Ue ' CoUrse Wi,h 40(j ' : 000,000 of people, huherto secluded from the rest of the world, would open.

Postagk ojf Nkwsfafebs.—Now Js the time for ourcountiy friends to subscribe for the Dispatch. The new postage law, which went into operation on the Ist instant, makes a considerable reduction on the postage of newspapers. The Dispatch can now be received in the country on the following postage ratea: FOB DAILY PAPEB. To any post office in Henrico Co...Free. To any do in Virginia l!»i cts. per qr. To any do in any other State 3 J cts per qr. FOB WEEKLY PAPEB. To any post office in Henrico Co Free. To any do in Virginia 3i cts. per qr. To any do in any other State 6i cts. per qr. Thus it will be seen, that to any person who may dosire a newspaper, for themselves, or families, th e amount of postage can no longer be made an ob jection—and we should take pleasure in forwarding the Dispatch to 50,000 of our country friends so soon as they may seed in their orders. The whole cost of our paper, sent daily to any post office in the State, will amount now to only 4 dollars and 78 cents for a year—and the whole cost of our weekly paper only to SSI and 13 cents a year—and but a few cents more, if either paper be sent to any part of the United States. This is, including subscrip tion price and postage, but 9 cents a week for the daily, and 'I cents a week for the weekly Dispatch — Either paper is extremely low; but a cheaper pa per than the "Weekly Dispatch" is not to be found in the United States. A coriesponding reduction in the rates of postage for all printed mailable matter is made by the new law. Quarterly payments, In advance, may be made either at the mailing office, or at the cfiice of de livery. When made at th 1 ? mailing office, satisfac tory evidence of such payment must be exhibited at the office of delivery. Send your orders. We are ready to accommo date j ou. Religious Meetings.—Meetings for the pur poses of religious enquiry and exhortation are now the order, not exact'y of the day, but of the night. A marked and serious feeling prevails throughout the churches-. Sunday morning nine young men and two ladies were baptized in the pool at the First Baptist Church. There will be another bap tizing at the same place next Sunday. These per sons were »he converts under the preaching of the Rev. Mr. Ford, on Church Hill. In the afternoon, Rev. Mr. Bailey, of the M. E. Church, baptized two converts in a pond near How ard's Grova. During the last week some twenty-five persons have professed conversion at the revival meetings in progress at the Centenary M. E. Church. The church is thronged nightly, and there aio a large number of penitents. A protracted meeting also commeuced at Asbury Chapel, Union Hill, Sunday evening last, and will continue during the evenings of this week. The Baptists will also continue their series of meetings at Springfield Hall, Church Hill, every evening this week. Manchester. —A visit to Manchester a few days ago, exhibited to us some recent improvements in that ancient village. Some new houses have lately been erected, and ethers have had a new and bright face put upon them ; the streets are in a better con dition than formerly and stores and work-shops ap pear to have increusi d, and to be doing a more live ly business than usual. Still, Manchester is not what it ought to be. it has not kept pace with its' near neighbor, Richmond, in growth and prosper! ty, as we conceive it should have done. Arid ihe question naturally arises—Why has it not ? It pos sesses all the advantages, if not more, for a town, tnau areeujoyed by Richmond; the country trade from the South tide is equal to that ol the North side ; tie water advantages, we believe, are great er than those of the Richmond side; at least, one ha.f of the river can easily be commanded for the use of mills ani manufactures lhere ; the location is a desirable one for manufacturing establish ments as well as a charming one for a town ; it has better faciliti 'S for communication with the shipping at Rocketts, &c, <tc. And yet, Manches ter has been languishing while Richmond has been increasing in size and prosperity with astonishing rapidity. We, however, predict that a new and a blight destiny will soon open upon Manchester. It has all the advantages which nature can give it to make it a rival of its namesake in England, and the time is not distant, we prophesy, when these advantages will be properly appreciated, and when enterprise and capital will go there to make it a large and flourishing town. These advantages, in deed are already being appreciated Some of our citizens and capitalist* have recently turned their attention in that way, and have bought lots f>r tho purpose of improving them; and we have no doubt they will soon find investments a most profit able speculation. Here we think we can see the beginning of a better stat-i of things for Manches ter. The example of a few enterprising men is all that is wanting to give a start and impetus to im provements and prosperity; and surprise is, that capitalists and enterprise hare been so 6low in finding their way there. Nothing but whim and fashion have operated against the growth and pros perity of Manchester. It has been fashionable to build and resid-i in Richmond, although often done by the sacrirce of pecuniary interest This fashion is now about to change. Moreover, the titre is not distant when Manchester and .Richmond will be more closely united by a free bridge; and thus an• other obstacle removed to the prosperity tf both places. Manchester, if a few enterprising people will it, can not only be is tradsthe rival of it 6 English namesake, but it can also be for desirable piivate residences, to Richmond what Brooklyn is to New York. We hope to live to see it occupy the posiiion it deserves.

It is from ihe pen of the author of "Mary Herbert," "Gertrude," Ac. It was in tended for the children of a Village School, and is a description of one tf the most interesting of journeys, and its incidents, told in a simple and at. tractive manner, which is, while weii suited to the youthful mind, into rusting to all. Messrs. Nash At Woodnouse have the work for sale. Drunk. —Daniel M. Gordon, living on 17th strict, was found lying drunk in the street Sunday last by officer Pierce, and taken to the cage.

Before I had taken one bottle of which I felt much better, and as 1 continued taking it, I felt strength coming into my back and limbs, and my stomach strength ened and revived every way. I have taken five bot tles, and am much better than I ever expected to be. I intend to use it whenever I need it, and would recommend it to the afflicted, believing it unequal led.
