^ .. Interest on tlx? StetfiJDBht From the following correspondence it will be seen that the semi-annual "instalment of the interest on tho State debt, due in July, will not be paid.- This is muoli to be re gretted, but not very surprising. It will be hard upon those widows nnd orphans, espe cinllv in the South, who look tothia interest as a means of support. Tn addition to the violent revolution la the political constitution of the State, which has so much disturbed confidence and dis organized industry, the State Treasury has been heavily drained to pay the expenses of the late motley Convention of incompe tents. This body cat months to do what ought to hayc been done in three days its membters receiving a larger per diem thai) was -over paid the best men of tho State. They robbed the creditors of the State in a work of destruction to the public interests generally. It would not do for the State to borrow money to pay this- interest. She cannot sec far enough ahead. There is no certainty as to whether the Constitution now hanging over us will be adopted or not. If it is adopted, wc have no idea the State will be able to meet her subsequent obligations in addition to incurring that for a loan to meet the July interest. Its adoption will be dis astrous to the public resources. If the Constitution is rejected, of course the State will be plunged into the cost of another Convention and a called session of the Le gislature. So we cannot see that the exe cutive officers would be at all justified in extending the credit of the State. Ihey have no authority, we imagine, to do so; and if they had, its exercise would be alto gether injudicious. " We want peace," as General Grant says. Until we have it, and that in some fair and sensible way, creditors holding the bonds of the State?Radicals and Conser vatives?need not look with certainty for their dividends. ."First National Bank,) "Richmond, Va., .June e, 1868. J ? ? n'm. F. Taylor. Esy, Auditor State of Virginia: "IX\irSIr.?In view of the frequent Inquiries of ihis Bank as to whether the Interest on the State debt maturing- 1st of July proximo will be paid, I have to request that you will inform me officially w hether the State Is In funds to meet the same.

President First Sattonal Bank, Richmond: ?? lH-ar sir,? 111 reply to your inquiry whether the interest on the State debt maturing the 1st or July next w ill be paid. 1 have to say that I see no pros pect whatever of having a balance In the treasury at that time?such as would justify the attempt to pay. There are reasons for this opinion which it is not necessarv in tills communication to state. I will only add*that 1 feel the profoundest regret in niaklug'thls statement. ??I am, very respectfully, "William F. Taylor, "Auditor of Public Accounts." The British in Abyssinia. We have prepared from'published letters a connected account of the British expedi^ tion to Abyssinia to rescue European pri soners held by the savage King of that country, which will be found highly inte resting. The march of the British army was creditable to its distinguished commander. It shows foreca3te, discipline, and forti tude. But so far as the fighting is con cerned it is positively ridiculous. Not a man in the British army was killed ; and all the attempts of letter-writers to give the fighting somewhat the air of heroism are absurd. The nature of the expedition, the dignity of the nation that undertook it, t lie peculiarities of the country upon which it was directed, the strange people of that country, and its yet stranger King, gives the affair a kind of interest tinged with romance. The defiant courage and peculiar pride of the King which led him to refuse to surrender in the very face of defeat, and to prefer death to captivity, are very striking, while the world is amazed at the brutal ferocity and phrenzy which led him him to slaughter upwards of three hundred of his prisoners while the enemy was at the gates of his principal fortress. Congressional Nomination.?We have already announced that the recent Conser vative Convention in the Alexandria dis trict nominated B. II. Shackelford, Esq., as the Conservative candidate for Congress. Messrs. Thomas .P. Wr all ace, of Madison , William H. Dflaney, of Fairfax; and William Horner, of Fauquier, a commit tee of the Convention, informed Mr. Shackelford of his nomination. In reply, he accepts, and briefly states that he will use his best exertions to defeat the Consti tution?to preserve and perpetuate the su premacy of the white race?and vindicate the honor and integrity of Virginia. He is a strong man, and the Conservatives have in him a reliable champion. The New York Tribune and tho journals after itB fashion ?ro making very light ot the recent election disorders in Washington city. That riot was a very small concern? a mere pastime. What a different affair was the New Orleans riot! For that the ultra Radicals desired to punish the people * of the whole State of Louisiana by most humiliating disqualifications, and worse j than that, the immediate turning out of all decent men who held office and the filling their places with Union men so-called. But then it should be remembered that New Orleans is away down in Louisiana, while I Wjoshington is near the northern 11 free white States;" too near for Radical com fort. The best that can be done there with a colored riot iB to sugar it over and make it very innocent. . . f It will- be seen by the telegraphic news that th$ Washington city government is in trouble from a conflict concerning the legality of election returns. It is not woxi derful. With such incompatible constitu ent elements these troubles are likely to mere-age. ?0 ?i*ftp The Senate Committee to investigate at tempt# to influence votes on the conviction' of the President cannot be got together. The Radicals are said to be afraid of inves tigation. Mr. Buokalew may call the matter up in open Senate. ' ? ^ . ?<! I IIMJ MM I m III .1 1 III I I III.

Violent Ebullition of Feeling among the FTegroes-Firmness of Mayor Burgess Memorial Celebration on the 9 th of June. ?<^wfeTrti^-"i-'Pirrnffmfiiii| June 8,' 1868. Onr community haa probably enjoyed as niuch mranquUlity during these eventful times *s any other of ?qua} numbers, but every now and then some incident occurs to show that there is no Teal stability in the foundations of southern^ society, Late <*n Saturday afternoon some difficulty occur red At the market-house between a white man and a negro, the latter being struck by the former. At thot .particular time of the week the number of macks attending mar ket is largely in the, ascendancy?*, and aa soon as the frw^occurred the whole orowd fired up in a moment, threatenlngfor a time to take the la* into their own flict summary punishment on offender. The white man-was pursued: until >e I found protection, from the police, wbo took I fiim to the co\ rt-house to be examined by a magistrate, a larg tr^ of negroes following, after. The Mayor had retired from his office, and .no other magistrate be ing at hand, the policemen were about to discharge him on his recognizance to ap pear to-day. But the negroes threatened violence if he.was-set at ^ liberty, sisted on his being put in the jail. _ Ihe case being brought before the Mayor s Court to-day, Mr. Buigess administered a severe rebuke to these lawlesB nepoes, saying if he had been present at the ^ would have ordered the arrest of man engaged therein and his committal to 53? andthat he would be prompt-to do it in every future disturbance of the kind., L fined and boundI ?lteg the peace, in which he no doubt had his desert; but the affair is chiefly import tant-taken in connection with wrnree of others in different parts of the country as showing that these jeople J*?.? idea of regulated, freedom, and that all the significance they attach ^ 0 it is the liberty to follow their unreasoning impuUea. Unleea controlled with a strong hand, they will belie the history of their race if the same scenes are not rePeate*'? attempted to be repeated bere, that have been enacted in San Domingo. If suchex cesses as haro recently been exhibited Washington?tending, as they inevitab y will, from bad to worse?do not enure to their own destruction, it can e, " cause the Anglo-Saxon spirit shall have been extinguished in the American breast. It. is the worst thing that could have hap ^ pened to the negro that he should have been made for three years past the idol of a powerful party. It has served to inflate him with an idea of his vast importance, until now he believes he is superior to the 1 white man. When the recoil comes, as it must inevitably do in the course of time perhaps speedily-there is no alternative for him but to succumb before a race that is conquering the world, as m the case of other inferior races. To-morrow, the 9th, being the grand an niversary of the Memorial Society, and be ing more painfully connected with our lo cal associations than any other day, will, 1 the weather permits, be celebrated with un usual demonstrations. Extensive prepara tions are being made for the occasion. It is expected that the stores will be closed, and business suspended in the afternoon. Doubtless arrangements have been made for obtaining a portion of the floral decora tions from Richmond ; and, indeed, if the whole surrounding country was laid under contribution they could not be supplied in too great profusion. There are several thousands of graves at Blandford, each one of which will be the recipient of a pious offering, whether from the hand of rela tives or strangers. Destructive Fire?Loss about $30,000. One of the most destructive fires which have occurred here for some' time, took place on Sunday morning^ about 4 0 clock on Main street, at the head of ?e Bduare. The store occupied by Messrs. L. L.Brickhouse & Co., wholesale boot and shoe dealers, was entii-ely guted. The loss of Messrs. Brickhouso & Co.! a heavy one, as it is not covered by insu ranee within about 3,000,. and they are thrown out of -business at a time of the year when their business was prosperous. Messrs Phillips & Zill, next door, west Messrs. Brickhouse & Co., suffered con siderable damage by water, but were ful y insured.?Norfolk Journal Death of Mrs. L. )SL Chandler.?This estimable lady died on Saturday last in this city.

He has published a card saying that the suit is withdrawn, although his grievances were great, because he is of opinion that such prosecutions are productive of no good, but much -evil in keeping ,qpen the wounds .inflicted in the late unfortunate civil war.

The afternoon was clear and bright, adding attractiveness to the natural and artificial beauties of the grounds, inviting pedestrians, as well as others in carriages and by the passenger railway, to the spot. The ceremony took place between 3 and 5 o'clock. The Confederate graves lie in a handsome oak grove, sloping to a vale, on the west side of the grounds, in regular rows, to the number of nearly two' hundred. The scene was subdued and solemn, while both young and old for some two hours continued their offerings, until every mound was al most entirely covered with flowers. An aged lady approached two graves, to which for a time she appeared to pay special at tention. Beautiful wreaths of cypress, in terwoven with white blossoms, were care fully laid at the head of each, while bou quets were scattered in profusion the entire length of the little mounds which marked the spot where repose the remains of her two sons. The tribute was participated in by all classes of ladies, until the whole space occupied by the Confederate graves presented the appearance of a rich conser vatory. The graves, though neatly sodded, are without headstones, and the suggestion being madeTor a collection to supply such, some $200 were subscribed on the spot, and a large portion of it paid in cash.?Sun, Sth.

Nothing authentic is known beyond the outside gossip of wit nesses, but enough has transpired to create a general scare among politicians. The dis trust of Butler is growing, and an early discharge of the committee from further in vestigation is probable.
