An action was brought before tho Cir
, .it Court of Pittsylvania ? Judge Wixu
, , p ? last week by G. T. Pack aud wife,
Danville, against the Danville Kailroad
T mpany for damages for injuries received
1 v Mr*. Pa< k last year by tho passen
r train running off the track near Coal
,]]. It will be remembered that several
? rsons were injured, and two fatally, on
t'.e same occasion. Messrs. Gii.mkr, II.
(mI.vvr, and E. Bakkskai.k, apj>eared for
? : ,? plaintiffs, and Messrs. Kkai>, Trkdway,
avid Flo i rnoy for the defendant. The
t was argued with great ability and in
genuity by counsel, and we learu resulted
in a disagreement of the jury. A portion
wore forgi\ ing $.">00 damages, and the others
\ re against any damages. The caso was,
by consent of parties, continued to be
tried before the court of Danville, for the
c nvenienco of witnesses.
Another case against the company, which
did nut come up, was also changed from
the court-house to the court to bo held at
Danville. This is the case of Morse vs.
t Danville Kailroad Company to recover
ti c value of certain tobacco. This to
.ceo was transported by the company
j. .ju Halifax to Danville, there to be
> j pod to Ti \as by the Southern Express
( <mpany ; but Shermax being then in tho
way, the f reight was paid, and it was left
:i the depot. There it was at the surren
der, aud Confederate soldiers who broke
. n the depot in search of Government
j ? ?erty took apart of it oil', while per
v : - in the neighborhood helped them
m'!\v> to the remainder. Tho owner re
covered a part. The suit is brought for
- whole, and its value laid at $10,000.
Ttio Springs.
The old and popular Warm Springs are
.pen this year for visitors. Sec adver
i fiuent. It is one of the most luxurious
! ,itli> in the world and one of the most
:icent in disease. It is, we believe,
? ;.e ? . iest watering-place in the State, next
t i the Warm or Berkeley Springs of Mor
gan county.
The Bath Alum, four miles this side the
W a: m, is a delightful place, and is kept in
? 1 tyle by Mr. Baxtkr. The buildings
at ti > summer resort are excellent aud
most comfortable. The water has a tine
. -?j.'itatioD, and was about the first that at
1 . te 1 much attention of that kind of cu
i. vt mineral water. See advertisement.
These springs are reached by stage from
Mi!:!' :<>' depot, on the Central railroad.
The Amelia Sulphur Springs, of Amelia
( ;? ty, are also ready for visitors. These
springs are popular here, and have been
nv.i h patronized by this city by those who
ha-1 not leisure to go further away. The
? . .lit;, is agreeable and healthy. See ad
vertisement.
The Bedford Alum, near the Virginia
and Tennessee railroad, has been long
known in its neighborhood as a valuable
( native water, but has only in latter years
been advertised. See notice.
1'a< n i< Kaii.way. ? "What is called the
I'nion Pacitic railway is proceeding to
w nds the liocky mountains with a speed
ijexampled ^n this country. It is now
?mpletcd for more than three hundred
? liles west of Omaha, which is on tho
western boundary of Iowa. One hundred
miles from Omaha is the town of Colum
bus, which is exactly half way across the
continent. This is to bo a great city. A
company of great wealth owns a large
tract of land there, which is to be cut up
into 0,000 lots. George Francis Train is
the head of this company. The last farm
? n the line of the road at present is forty
miles frcm. Columbus. The road beyond
th? liocky mountains is pushed forward
with a larger force than is employed on
ti. 5 s side, and if there is uo Hugging in the
'.lit and industry of the company, the
v !."lc line will bo probably finished iu two
j ears.
A Popular Government. ? In one of
? theatres of Dublin the other day was
j lonneil Boi'H' K AiLT'd drama of "Jes
?? lirowu; or, The Relief of Lucknow,"
ii which occurs the incident in the siege
? l that place of the sudden cry of Jessie,
4 It is the Slogan! Diuua ye bear it ?"
and of the arrival of troops to succor the
starved gariison. According to English
notions, justly or unjustly, Nana Sahib is
the villain of the piece. In the course of
the drama, Nana utters some severe de
nuuciatious of the liriti.Nh Government,
and when these were recited on the stage
the audience applauded in a thundering
manner. In vain the loyal subjects of the
<v?ueen essayed to run a counter demon
-iration. They were completely drowned,
and Nana found great didiculty in pro
( ceding. There are no people who, when
from home, are more ready to interpret
demonstrations of this kind as the fore
: . ..iR i ? of the downfall of a monarch, aud
: 'in- s'*em to derive more satisfaction from
them than the British. They can now
lave the pleasure of considering popular
indications nearer home than Paris.
Crkte. ? The inhabitants of the island of
Candia? ancient Crete? have made aglori
?'us defence against the Turks. Jt is hard
ly possible that a people showing such
' iis.-tcncy and force should be yet aban
u to the Turks. The invincible Siu
AK Ki.kkm, whose name is a tower of
t length with the Porte, unable to con
ic-r the stubborn and brave Cretans in the
? ountains, has tried the resource of rava
!?' '-f the plains as a barbarian.
It i? reported that England, in her own
trading and shop. keeping spirit, proposes
that Turkey himli be paid $G, 000,000 for

LOCAL MATTERS.
tiBAND RADICAL CAUCUS.
VISIT OF NORTHERN REPUBLICANS.
BOTTS'S SCHEME DEFEATED.
A Convention Called in Richmond. j
We noticed yesterday the arrival in '
Richmond of a number of prominent Re
publicans, hailing from New York, Phila
delphia, and Boston. It seems that these
gentlemen were delegates from the Union
League Clubs of New York and Philadel
phia, and from the Massachusetts Recon
struction Association, and visited our State
upon a mission of peace ; the great object
being to harmonize the two wings of the
Radical party in Virginia. The more pro
minent persons of the party were Senator
Wilson, Hon. Charles Gibbons, Speaker of
the House of Delegates of Pennsylvania ;
George II. Booker, Poet Laureate of the i
Loyal Leagues ; and T. B. Van Buren, of
New York.
On Tuesday evening the northern dele
gation met their brethren of Virginia at
the Gubernatorial mansion, and immedi
ately resolved themselves into secret ses
sion to consider the affairs of the nation.
Here a most extraordinary scene was pre
sented in the reconciliation of two long
separated representatives of Virginia Rad:
calism. . Hunnicutt, whose abuse of I'eir- !
point it has often been our lot to record, j
met the Governor so much admired by a \
Richmond journal as a paragon of mode
ration in politics, and the two were recon- 1
ciled, shaking hands with vows of eternal
allegiance to the Republican party of Vir
ginia. They had not exchanged words !
before for more than twelve months.
This touching scene being linished, the
great business of the evening was com
menced ; and we are informed that it was j
successfully accomplished, although a few j
particulars were not attended to until yes- 1
terday at a second caucus held at the 1
Ballard House. At tho latter gathering
addresses were made by I nderwood, '
Chandler, Hunnicutt, and Bickley; and
the following call for a convention recom
mended by the State Central Committee
was unanimously agreed upon :
" To the Unconditional Union Men of Vir
ginia :
"The Republican Executive State Com
inittee and the undersigned citizens of the
State of Virginia, who here avow ourselves J
unconditional Union men and members of (
the groat Republican party of the United
States, call upon all others of like condi.
tion, as common sufferers, not to throw
away this golden opportunity to rescue
ourselves, our children, and the State,
from the hands of those who have brought
nothing but ruin, desolation, want, and
wretchedness upon our land, to meet in
council at Richmond, as more ^convenient
than Charlottesville, on the 1st day of Au
gust next, at 12 M., in the African church,
for the purpose of extending and perfect
ing the organization of the Republican
party commenced by the convention as
sembled at Richmond on the 17th of April
last."
It will be seen by the above that Ilun
nicutt and Lipscomb are triumphant in
the contest over Botts and the small fac
tion which owned his leadership. The
Charlottesville Convention? Botts's pet
scheme? was abandoned, and the old war
horse yielded as gracefully as possible to a
majority which he could not control. The
call is signed by all tlie members of the
Radical State Central Committee and by
about 300 Republicans hailing from various
parts of the State.
Cask of Stabhino. ? On yesterday morn
ing about 7 o'clock, on General West's
farm, three miles below the city on the
Williamsburg turnpike, a collision took
place between Mr. Ellis, the manager of
the farm, and Dick Read, a colored laborer
working upon the premises. The difli
culty was causcd by a dispute about a
hoe, which Dick, .'is a laborer, claimed as
his while on the farm, but which the man
ager authorized another man to use. Al
tercation ensued between Dick and the
manager which led to a collision, in which
Mr. Ellis was cut with a pocket-knife
pretty severely, and filed two shots at
Dick without effect. Mr. Ellis received a
deep cut on the right breast, and another
upon the shoulder near the joint. Dick
was arrested, under order of the Freed
inen's Bureau, by Corporal Forrest and a
file of men. lie is confined in tho Libby
prison. _
Sma81I-vp. ? A horse, attached to a
buggy belonging to Mr. C. B. Chalk, which
was being driven by a colored boy, ran off
last night down Governor street, and the
driver was violently thrown out opposite
Turner's news depot, and much injured.
He was taken into Dr. Cabell's ollice, and
received proper medical attention. The
horse was stopped at the corner of Thir
teenth aud Cary streets, and the buggy
found to be badly smashed.
Maki vk. ? A steamer carrying a deck
h/iid of buoys came up tho river on Tues
day, and after planting two on the Lyne's
Creek shoal returned to Hampton Roads.
As the vessel had a large number of buoys
on board, and as many had not been re
placed higher up the river, the question
has been naturally asked why they were
not put down while the steamer was in the
river f
Masonic. ? E. F. Watson, M. D., Past
Grand Master of tho Grand Lodge of North
Carolina, and Past Most Excellent High
Priest of the Grand Chapter of the same
State, was in Richmond yesterday on Ma
sonic business.
91 A MM MEET1IVV AT THE AFRICAN
CIU'RCVI.
Nprrfhea b j Menator W llson. Colonel
Jfojft, John J?j, Charlti W.
ll.1V ICa:
Htovej, and Other*.
A fair audience of colored persons
and a very small number of white men
assembled last night in the African church
pursuant to a call issued yesterday after
noon by the State Central Radical Com
mittee urging a grand rally of loyal males
and females to meet the northern delega
tion to which wo have referred in another
column. The attendance was very light ;
but it is only just to say that the call ap
peared rather late in the day, otherwiso,
perhaps, there would have been a larger
assemblage.
The meeting was called to order by
John Hawxhurst, of Alexandria; upon
whose nomination Governor Peirpoint was
called to the chair.
Governor Peirpoint, after stating that
the meeting was impromptu, and had been
known to only a few citizens, suggested
that Mr. John Jay, of New York, be in
vited to address .the meeting. Before the
latter could tako the platform, however,
some one proposed a prayer ; which was
ofTered by a Rev. Mr. Mitchell, who fer
vently asked that the " State be delivered
from oppression"; a prayer in which we
heartily joined.
. Mr. Jay began by congratulating tho
audience upon the fact that differences
which had threatened to divide t lie part)
had been settled, and that the great Re
publican party of Virginia was now pre
pared to present an unbroken front. If
that division had concerned Virginia only,
we should not have come here^ lrom
northern cities to interfere ; but it con
cerned the whole people, and they were
deeply interested in the result. lie
urged that the Democratic party had base
ly betrayed the people of the South,
and attempted to prove it by the lan
guage of tho leaders of that party. ><o
charge of duplicity could bo brought
against tho great national party of #tho
Union. They had ever been constant,
and were always tho advocates of unity,
progress, and the development of internal
resources, lie desired \ irginians to con
sider well, and was convinced that they
would be wise enough to cast their lot
with the party of tho Union. He again
expressed his gratilication at the iiotts
llunnicutt coalition, and hoped there
would be no more division.
Mr. Charles W. Stovey was next intro
duced, and spoke at more length but
somewhat in the same strain, lie congratu
lated himself that he, a Yankee, a citizen
of Boston, could speak here in the Afri
can church of Richmond to those who
were once slave-*, and that those slaves
and their high-blooded masters were now
counselling together upon the atlairs of the
natiou. Though Yankee-born and with
Yankee principles, he said he had a por
fect right to stand here, and was as proud
of Washington and Jellerson as if they
had been born upon Plymouth Rock.
Colonel George F. Noyes, " distinguish
ed in field and forum," next appeared, and
commenced a very exalted harangue,
quite in contrast with the oratory ot the
former speaker. This was the proudest
hour of his life ; he had never dreamed of
such an h<>nor. Twice before lie had es
sayed to reach Richmond under tho ban
ners of the Repubiic ; now he stood hero
and gazed upon tho laces of Mack ana
white loyalists with genuine admiration,
lie desired to wipe out every vestige of
State rights, and to liing out tho broad
banner of perfect equal rights in every re
spect. Before he would give up thisdoctriue
he would go through another four years
war and sacriiice mor.e treasure and more
blood. He would fight again, and, if ne
cessarv, tight forever, lie was not now in
favor of eontiscation ; but rather than
abandon equal rights, he was in favor of
eontiscation, war-and tear to the knife.
Colonel Noyes spoke in a spread-eagle
tstvle, giving utterance to the most radical
sentiments, and was frequently interrupt
ed by tho most rapturous applause lrom
the colored portion ot the audience.
lion. Henry Wilson, of Massachusetts,
was then called out, and spoke as follows :
I have 110 time now, Mr. Chairman, to
utter my sentiments at length, but can
only refer to the record left 011 a trip from
Orange Courthouse to New Orleans, to
which every one can refer. I must, how.
ever, congratulate you upon the absolute
certainty of the fact that the State of Vir
ginia will be carried by an overwhelm
ing vote for the great Republican
party. All doubt in the minds of
men North and South are now re
moved, aud I wish the prediction
noted that the State will elect a conven
tion of uncompromising Radicals, change
the Constitution, conform it to the will of
Congress, elect a Republican Governor,
Legislature, and a majority of the mem
bers of Congress. The Old Dominiou in
this year of our Lord 1867 will place her
self fairly and squarely by the side of New
England, the Central States, and the great
Northwest, in the foremost rank of the
army of freedom, equal rights, justice, and
humanity.
The Thirty-ninth Congress provided a
plan of reconstruction, and placed it in
the hands of the 600,000 black men in the
rebel States. I knew that it was com
mitted to brave hearts and true, which
beat in unison with their couutry. I knew
that the brave men had in times past
proved their devotion to the cause of
truth, and even when oppressed had bided
their time, praying God for deliverance
from bondage, but without raising a
hand against their oppressors. I knew
that the 600,000 were God's children,
and that instinct would teach them
how to cast their votes. Beside these,
there were in the South many true and
loyal men who, through fire and blood,
had proved their devotion to Union and
liberty, and these, I know, would unite
with the enfranchised to speak for right
eousness and to aid the good work of re
construction. On tlte 27th of April last I
addressed the people of Richmond, and
expressed my opinions when some doubted
its propriety. I confess that I left the
State with some misgivings, as I knew
there was division among you. A
few brave and good men spoke their
sentiments so freely and advocated
such ultra measures that even our own
men"began to look on them with distrust.
Now a compromise has been effected, the
difi'ercnces have been adjusted, and Vir
ginia it) safe. You are now united from
the seaside to the mountains, and will
carry every county in the State.
The Republicans of Virginia must come
squarely out for universal suffrage, equal
rights between man and man, humanity
which embraces all for whom Christ died,
and for the education of the whole people.
I will go home with a happy heart, hav
ing witnessed the coalition of the factions
which threatened disaster, with tho firm
conviction that Virginia will be one of oar
most radical States, and that those farther
South will not be far behind. The party
of progress and civilization will hold the
sway on this broad continent for years to
come, and the time will yet come when we
will all be proud to say, as we look upon the
banner of the Union, that thto to PVr flav
our country,
Finally, nso every means which Provi
dence has given yon to defeat your ene
mief; give them blow for blaw, have con.
fidence in yourselves and each other, stand
to the 17th of April platform, and you will
achieve a victory which will canse a thrill
of joy to vibrate in the heart of every
lover of humanity, liberty, and civiliza
tion. <$gi
Mr. Slack, of Massachusetts, followed
Mr. Wilson, and made a speech rather
above the ordinary harangues to which we
are so wont to hear. He expatiated upon
the great resources of the State ; said that
he would use his pen and voice to influ
ence the capitalists of the North to pour
their riches into the South, and wished all
blessings for the people of Virginia.
Colonel Van Burcn, of New York, was
next introduced, and spoke very humor
ously of his attempted entrance into Rich
mond three years ago contrasted with the
ease with which he entered a day or two
since. lie wished that ho could bo able
to speak to a few thousand of the men who
engaged in the war thau to the large as
sembly before him. lie had seen so much
to harmonize bis feelings that he didn't
dislike a rebel. Ho said, however, tljat if
the men who wero not Union men thought
as he had heard they did, he would feel to
wards them like the darkey on the witness
stand in the case of a brother who was
arraigned for stealing a chicken, lie was
asked, "What is Jake's character?"
Cha-acter, massa ; he aint got no cha-ac
ter." " But," was the rejoinder of the
magistrate, "do you think Jake would
steal a chicken?" "Well, massa," was
the reply, " I don't know ; but ef I was a
chicken, and Jake was eny whar about,
dis nigger would roosc mighty high." He
followed with many arguments urging the
colored men to vote with the Radical
party, warning them that unless they did
the rebels would get the reins of Govern
ment, and a virtual state of slavery would
be the result.
ne was followed by Mr. Morse, of Bos
ton, and several others, who spoke pretty
much in the strain of those who preceded
them ; after which, the meeting adjourned.
Judge Meredith's Court. ? In the case j
of Zetelle vs. Myers & Cridland, which ;
was submitted to the court on yesterday,
on a motion by the plaintiff to reject the
pleas tendered by the defendants, which
motion has been argued four days, the
court announced its decision, sustaining
the motion and rejecting the pleas.
Hustings Court or Magistrates. ? The
following business was transacted in this
court yesterday :
Daniel Ruilin, *negro, indicted for petit
larceny, was put on trial and found guilty.
He was sent to the chain gang.
David Goode, negro, indicted for felony,
was sent on for tfial btffore Judge Lyons.
Charles Van Winkle, indicted for selling
lottery tickets, was fined eighty-eight
dollars.
Thomas Jefferson and Jeremiah Miles,
negroes, indicted for petit larceny, were
found not guilty, and discharged.
Pocahontas Sherman, indicted for a mis
demeanor, was found not guilty, and dis
charged.
Robert F. Ilotze, indicted for assault
and battery, was put on trial, and after
hearing the evidence in the case, the jury
returned a verdict of guilty, and assessed
his line at one cent.
Mator's Court ? Wednesday Morning,
Mayor Mayo presiding. ? Lucy Harris,
charged with unlawfully insulting, beating,
and threatening to kill Camilla Hodges,
was called up. The alfair proving to have
been a sort of family scrape, the party was
sent about their business.
Philip and Fanny A. Walker, charged
with assaulting and beating with intent to
maim and disfigure Conrad Baumhard.
Philip was fined ?20 and required to give
surety for his good behavior. Fanny was |
discharged.
John Ilill, a well-dressed colored gentle,
man, was called up to answer the charge
of threatening to mash Ilenry Powell's
nioutb, and to put him to other inconveni
ence, by a free use of his fists. John, when |
called up, came forward, aud after bowing
to every ono in authority and several of j
the barristers and reporters around, and !
adjusting himself, took the position of a :
soldier, ready to hear what might be said
against him.
It appeared from Henry Powell's state
ment that he had attempted to interfere
with the marriage of lliil with his sister.
Hill not relishing this unwarranted inter
ference in his affairs du comr , placed his
doubled manipnlar extremities in juxtapo
sition to his intended brother-in-law's
mouth, and uttered the dire threat. For
this unnecessary demonstration Hill was
required to give ?100 surety for his future
good behavior, and Powell was warned not
to interfere with the management of any
of his sisters over twenty-one years of age. '
Henry Neurohr, charged with keeping
his bar open after 12 o'clock Saturday
night, was fined.
Horticultural and Pomological So
ciety. ? A meeting of this Society was held
in one of the rooms of the Ballard House
yesterday afternoon, Dr. Johnson, presi
dent, in the chair. The time and place
of holding the Annual Fair being the
subject for which tho meeting was
called, Mr. Allan suggested that as there !
was a member of the Executive Com
mittee of tho State Agricultural So
ciety present, it would be well to hear
from him as to his experience about this
matter. Mr. Charles B. Williams, the
gentleman alluded to, said that tho experi
ence of that Society had been that the
fairs should all be held after wheat had
been sown ; that the farmers then had
more time to attend to pleasure. After a
full description of the subject, the
Society resolved to hold its first An
nual Fair in this city, commencing
on Tuesday the 3 5th of October, to
continue from day to day, at the
option of the Executive Committee.
On motion, it was resolved that the Pre
sident of this Society correspond with the
other societies Of the State with a view to
aid in this exhibition. He also suggested
that it would be better hereafter to hold
two fairs each year : one in the spring and
the other in the fall. On motion, it was
resolved that the ladies be requested and
invited to become members of this Society.
On motion of Mr. Hill, a committee of five
was appointed to present the claims and
extend the membership of this Society.
The following committee was named :
Messrs. W. L. Hill, J. C. Shield?, John J.
Werth, G. W. Gilham, and William G.
Taylor.
On motion to increase the Executive
Committee, Colonel Gilham and William
T. Sutherlin, of Danville, were elected.
The meeting then, on motion, adjourned
to meet at the call of the President..
Banks ? A Lesson on Geography. ? A
venerable citizen reminded another some
what bis junior that according to Morse
the chief rivers in Maryland wero " Poko
moke, Nanticoke,Choptank, and Chester,"
His friend replied that ho remembered
Morse, but had forgotten this "nice de
rangement of epitaphs." Ho, however,
" knew something about Piankitank." The
elder suggesting that about that river frogs
mosti did congregate, the senior promptly
replied : " Yes, aud like some of our hard
uy ciiucnfl, hop from bank to bank ! "
Accident ox the Southsidk Railroad.
Od Tuesday last a passenger train on tho
Southside railroad ran of}' tho track at a
point about seven miles from Lynchburg.
The train had just crossed the James river at
Robinson's mill, when the hindmost trnck
of the ladies' car suddenly broke down,
dropping tho body of the car upon the
track while ascending the heavy grade
going up from the river. The car was
crowded with passengers, mostly ladies,
bnt fortunately, as the speed was not
great, only one person was injured.
A messenger was immediately sent back
to Lynchburg, and another car procured ;
after which, the train proceeded after a
detention of about three hours and a half.
Superintendent Dodamead, of the Dan
ville railroad, with commendable prompt
ness, sent a special engine to bring the
delayed passengers from Burkeville Junc
tion, and tho train arrived in Richmond at
half-past 8 o'clock on Wednesday night.
Escape of a Convict.? On Tuesday
night a negro sentenced from Petersburg
made his escape from the penitentiary by
means of a plank and a wagon tongue, out
of which he made a ladder. Having
reached the top of tho wall, ho watched
the sentry until he had turned an angle.
He then let himself down to the ground
by means of a rope made out of shoe
thread, and made good his escape.

COLORED CITIZENS MISTAKEN*.? A short
time ago a number of colored men of the
Second Ward united in a petition to Gene
ral Schofield to remove Mr. E. J. Crump,
who had been appointed a registering olli
cer in that ward, urging that he was dis
loyal to the United States during the war,
and that his continuance would be detri
mental to the colored suffragans. After a
full and careful examination of white and
colored witnesses, Captain Chalfin, A. A.
G., in a letter to Captain T. E. Rose, Pre
sident of the Board of Registration, pro
nounced the charge utterly " without foun
dation," and orders that Mr. Crump " bo
retained as a registering otlicer."
Tjik Circuit Court of the United
States met yesterday at 11 o'clock, hut

is almost despaired of by the attending
physician.
Young Men's Christian Association.?
The regular monthly meeting of this As
sociation was held at their rooms on Tues
day evening. The principal topic under
discussion was the propriety of sending
delegates to the annual convention of
associations of this character which meets
in Montreal next week. Messrs. Pulliam
and Wilson, of Baltimore, were intro
duced, and urged the appointment of
delegates to the convention in short ad
dresses; after whieh Mr. B. R. Welford,
of this city, spoke earnestly and at length
in opposition to the measure. Messrs. D.
Lee Powell, J. II. Moore, and P. F. How
ard, also spoke against it, while Mr. W. L.
Ilill, in an able extempore address, favored
the measure.
Finally, a series of resolutions', offered by
Mr. Wolford, respectfully declining to send
delegates to the convention were adopted
with hut one dissenting voice. The reso
lutions were well prepared, and breathed a
Christian-like and fraternal spirit.
Broad-street Water-Spbinklkr.? Mr.
John R. Mountcastle, who has commenced
the spriukliug of Broad street, finds it ne
cessary to call upon tho citizens to aid
him in order to keep it up. The sprink
ling of the streets is a comtort that cannot
be too well appreciated during the sum
mer months, and it is to be hoped that the
merchants of Broad street will aid Mr.
Mountcastle in his object. Mr. A. W.
Rosen will call upon the merchants be.
tween First and Tenth streets on Thurs
day to learn their views on the subject.
A Public Temperance Meeting wis
held on Tuesday night at Trinity Metho
dist church under the auspices of Hutchi
son Division of the Sons of Temperance.

Peterson an^ others, and the singing of
temperance airs added much to the plea
sure of tho meeting.
Tub Clay-street Fair is sfill open,

Pollard's new paper, the Southern Opinion ,
will certainly appear on Saturday next.

a most elegant and impressive vignette
heading. The attractive table of contents
may be found in another column.
HAH CHEATER ITEM*.
Chesterfield Court.? This body finish
ed its sitting on Tuesday. The business
was purely of a civil character. Justice
Cox presided. Tho petition of citizens of
the sixth magisterial district praying that
the fence law be modified so as to em
brace Ettricks and Matoaca was rejected.
The law, therefore, remains in statu quo.
After the adjournment of the court a large
assemblage of tho freedmen waa address
ed by Colonel William Ambers (Common,
wealth's attorney), Captain Clopton, A.
S. Hancock (member of tho Legislature
from this county), Jordan McRae, and
other speakers, whito and black. The
speochcs were all eminently conservative.
Tho utmost harmony prevailed, and we are
far from believing that tho freedmen of the
county are entirely radicalized.
Base-ball.? A match game of base
ball, at Stratford Park, between tho Con
federates of Richmond and the invincible
Manchester Alerts resulted in a victory
for the latter by a score of : Alerts, 46 ;
Confederates, 44. Tho Alerts have an in
fallible knack of waxing every Club that
crosses James river to try its mettle. Who
comes next ?
Fair. ? A fair has been in progress du
ring this week for the benefit of the Co
lored Baptist church. We are glad to
know that it has been extensively patron

continue all the week.

cies which this part of tho world affords.
