MONDAY OCTOBER 10, i?7<s The State Fair. The Stat* Agricultural Fair draw* near, ami the *tn? ^preparation Is very short. Their is much apprehension that the exhi bition will be impaired by the couseqenccs of the recent flood. There will, of course, be Dome injury done to the Fair by the flood, but not h great deal. It will prevent some from coming who intended to come, and aoine few articles for exhibition may lvc kept away ; but these drawbacks will l>e very limited. The prospects, indeed, are most encouraging. Let no man be indifferent from a fear that the exhibition will not be large and varied. It will, perhaps, l?e the greatest we have ever had. ? Although a drought has prevailed for near three months "in the region about Richmond, elsewhere there have been fine seasons, Especially has the Roanoke and I><m river valley been blessed with most fa vorable weather, while it has suffered no disasters from floods. So in the middle district, south of James river, and the south western part of the State, from whence we hope to receive some splendid cattle. Even iu the districts that have been visited by in undation the suffering was confined to the shores of the rivers. The upper plains and meadows and ranges were not injured, and we expect from these every evidence of carefUi tillage and thrift. From outside the State we look for some superb animals. Mr. Devriis, of Balti more, President of the Maryland Agricul tural Society, will have here some of his beautiful cattle, especially his fine Alder neys. Col. Dtuxkey, of Loudoun, will contribute to the exhibition some of his fine sheep, and probably his thoroughbred cattle. That staunch farmer and Zealous .agrieultnfisf, Mr. Slaughter Ficklin, will bring his Norman horses and other stock. "W e have not a doubt that the exhibition will be ouc of which Virginia may be proud, and one from which the farmer may gather a great deal of useful information. In the mechanical department the dis play will be the finest we ever had. There will be many new things, among them a tile manufacturing machine and a ditching ma chine. These will l>e especially interesting, tor the attention of the Virginia farmer has recently been very much attracted to the subject of under-draining. There is no department of manufactures which has more rapidly improved of late years than that of agricultural implements, and a farmer must keep himself well-in formed of improvements lo avoid falling be hind-hand. The Fair, of course, is the plaee where a man may become thoroughly acquainted with the progress of this im portant department. We can assure all our country friends of a grand exhibition. "We trust the farming community from all quarters will be repre sented. If ever there was a time when our people needed, more than at any other day, to be well informed of improvements in everything relating to the economy of the (arm, now is that time. We need more the aid of machinery and more the help of svs tems of general economy than ever. The farmer has now no resource but the results of his economy and industry. Formerly the increase of the value of his slave pro !>erty gave him a credit which was not in the long run to his advantage ; but it an swered present wants. That resource is gone, and one advantage from its loss will l?e the introduction of a system or vigi lance, economy, and cuergy that will greatly strengthen the solid means of the farmer and put a new face upon the country giving it the appearance of industry, care ful tillage, aud thrift that may go far to console us for the social revolution which has l>een forced ujion us. We hope to see a great convention of the solid people of Virginia at the approaching Fair. ? The Old Men on the Rampage.* Desirous of drawing out our dear old friends on the interesting theme of old floods and their destructive doings, we have thrown out hints and suggestion* that have not been unavailing. The octogenarians have besieged us. We have been like the Kuglihli at Balaklava, with old men 011 every hand. They overtopped us, and even un dermined us with unfathomable waters. Unlike the English at Balaklava, we have been delighted with the venerable war, and editfed by the eloquent details we have elicited. Freshes arc grand events in the land. There is nothing scarcely relating to the past that excites more inquiry and deeper interest. Yet, in this State there is hardly anything accurate with regard to them. The traditions naturally differ, being affected by the temper of those who origin ated them. And there is no standard guide showing the facts about the height ot the waters at different periods. Even the great fresh of 1771, which led to legislative action, is not marked here, and the traditions with regard to it arc unsatisfactory and often contradictory. However, from the best comparative information that can be ob tained, we incline to think that, possibly that flood was higher than the recent rise. But we think it has beeu exaggerated. There is no subject about which men are more prone to extravagances. Floods are exciting things. They are so mighty, so destructive. They fill men with wonder. The power of water is a thing we never get used to,>nd never cease to admire. Now, then, our old men- -those belong ing to a day anterior to that we acknow ledge? have liberally offered their reminis cences. We noticed Wednesday the oracles of the sage of Petersburg. We have ver bally and written the views of others. We have heard of the memorial stone of the flood of 1771 at Turkey Island. The vene rable Joseph J. Pleasants, civil engineer of this city, knows where it is, and agrees to chow It to us ; and Mr. Leak (classic nam), who resides upon the farm, has re cently seen it. Now comes an old friend who has had a great deal to do with James river, and energetically vindicates the achievements of that river during his ad ministration. We copy his letter : Editor* of the Dispatch : I hove known all the freshet* in James river from 1812 to t be present day. For the twenty-live years from 188a to 1848, Inclusive, that I had the supertotendency of the canal, I marked at different points alobg the river and canal the heights of ail the fre&hets.that occurred in those years. Bo that I could wcurately tell their relative heights. 'JC he one in 1843, if 1 mistake not . the year, was the highest that occurred during that period, and the highest that bad taken Place for many years before. At" Dover mill, ^ in Goochland county* nr. Watkins, the jCathei of the late Col. Joseph 8. Watkiufc, had marked on one Ek, of the girder posts in the basement of the gftmill'fcouse the height of all freshets from 9Bthc erection of the mill to his death, and WF Col. Watkins bad done the same during his ownership of the property, which ceased about 1832. 1 suppose the marks extended back for a period of more than fifty years before 1832, and the fresh of 1813 overtyped tbem all nine inches. 1 marked on the same post the rises in the riy or from 1822 to 1848. The milt-house was burnt down a few years ago. /*> that the marks were all lost.

You nay that the latejfreshetmay be the nighest that has dc?urre&? according to written or traditional ?vld?ti>e? <dnce the country was settled. If traditional evb dence fa to be relied on, the freshet of 1 7 / 1 was from tOto 15 feci jilgher than the late one (1870). What is the tradition? If I had time, and could writ? better than- 1 now do, 1 could give you many well-authenti catcd traditions about the freshet of <1, but being old, nearly 73 years, and diseased, I write with great difficulty J tborefor< , I shall confine mvsclf to but two or three of them: First, the island in James rijer, seven miles above Richmond, formerly owned by uie, and now by Mr. Jesse v> il liams. as I have been told by persons who knew it before 1771, was a rich alluvial island of about 100 acres. That freshet sub merged the whole island many feet, leaving a deposit of pure sattd from 5 to 6 feet in depf n on three-fourths of all the surface of | the inland. Mr. Williams tells me to-day that the late freshet covered but a portion of the island. Second. About six miles above Goochland Court-house, on the old stage road to Char lottesville, in the valley of Llckinghole creek, there now, I suppose, stands a tree on the roadside marked to indicate the height of the freshet of 1771. I . have seen the mark frequently in the last Forty years, and it is so high Up on the body of the tree that a man sitting on an ordinary horse can't reach it with his hand. All* the old inhabitants of Goochland countv recognize this as an authentic indication of the height of the freshet of 1771. Walter D. Leake. Esq., of Goochland, who was born ana raised within a mile of the tree referred to, will bear me out in this statement. Many other traditions I could give equally as con clusive a9 these, but I forbear. Richard Reins, Richmond* Octv T>> 1870. Mr? RsiS*s does not claim superiority for any of his floods over that of Saturday, which Mr. Pleasants has found to have risen twenty-four feet. We wish the flood of '71 had been thus measured* Mr* Re1ns> after stating the relation of several floods in the present renttiry towards one another, claims superiority of the flood of '71 over that of Saturday* mainly on the ground that it only partly overflowed Farrar's, or Rkins's, or Williams's island, while the flood of '71 overflowed the whole of it "many feet." How useful a measuring rule would have been here in '71 ! A word about the island i Mr. Reins says the flood deposited on the island, which had been previously rich, a covering of sand five to six feet deep. He knows what h6 says, be cause he had sunk tile spade into it, much of that sRttd of that island being used in late years for building iu this city. And yet the Williamsburg Gazette^ of May 30, 1771, stated that the sUper-imposed sand upon that island was ten or twelve feet deep I Thus we see how things may be exaggerated. The same authority asserted that the soil had been first washed away, as if the current that washed away the soil of an island would immediately deposit twelve feet of sand upon it. We cite these things to show how a great flood may be misrepresented. It is too grand and fearful a thing to be abused in this way. Lastly comes a rollicking joker, who bad just risen probably from ^fee festive board when he ventured into these interesting chroniek'?, and that more interesting in quiry touchiug the age of this writer. We never muzzle an assailant, so let hini ^peak for bimself : The "Dispatch" kxb the Freshet.? Our esteemed and venerable senior editor of tlie Dispatch has informed us that the late freshet was the highest known in James river since the first settlement of the State. We are not exactly informed whether this is affirmed by him as of his own personal knowledge, predicated upon his cor poral existence for that length of time; Upon this point there seem* To be a little iudciiniteiicss on the part of our neighbor. But with u view of having the history of past floods accurate, we give this mornin? the statement of our venerable and worthy townsman Thomas H. Drew, Esq., in re" gard to a freshet which occurred in 1795. Mr. Drew was bom in 1785, and, unless we are much mistaken, he is older by a few years than the senior editor of the Dispatch. Mr. Drew says bis wife in 17J>5 was seve ral years old, and lived at the time on Main street where Simpson's hardware store now is. she remembered distinctly, on the oc casion of the flood of 1795, seeing boats with men in them passing to and fro through the passages of what was then Bowler's Tavern, located where the St. Charles Hotel now stands. There has been little or no filling up of tbe sit< of Bowler's Tavern since that time, and it follows necessarily that the water was from one to two feet higher in 1795 than it was in the recent flood. >Vhat has our venerable neighbor to say now ? He will find it very hard to invalidate the testimony in question, for Mr. Drew's memory is extraordinary. Let us hear from our friend ot the Dispatch. "Where were you then Jiving}' How old were you in 179o ? Did you see the flood at all ot which Mr. Drew* speaks? If you were in esse, where were you ? Speak out ; this important matter will admit, of no equivocation. Don't be afraid to tell us how old you are ; age is always respectable. We sometimes think you make erroneous impressions in regard to your ago for the purpose of giving additional weight and dignity to your statements. "We now have you on the record, and we are determined bo know how old you are, and whether you really did come over from England with Captain Smith, as you sometimes would make us believe. We have produced an old and unim peachable witness nearly eighty-six years of age, and we want to know whether you are prepared to controvert his clear state ment by affirming yourself older than our wituess. R. Now, this gentleman, who, we suspect, is turning gray, and would indulge a fling at age in revenge, is like the Yorkshire boy who asked for some salt in the hope that somebody would give him an egg. So Mr. Drew's recollections are not what he is after ; but he wants to pepper " old age" a little. About his report of Mr. Drew's recol lections : first, let it be understood that Mr. Drew had a flood to protect from asper sion, and with his wonderful memory at his time of life, and his concise and well-sus t-aincd narrative, he had done it admirably well. This was the flood of '95, whose wa ters freely flowed iu aud out, and floated a boat through the passages of the base ment of the hotel which stood where the St. Charles Hotel now stands, aud we know the water swept by the St. Charles on Satur day. But while Mr. Drew is so clear in his memory, he is a man of sound judgment, and will not undertake to settle questions of the change of landmarks, the elevation of the streets, &c. He reviewed the scene Wednesday morning, and amended his ver dict. While iu this he declares that If there was and difference between the flood of *05 and that of Saturday lest it was in favor of the former, be thinks it would be safer to aay that they were more nearly equal than any two floods ever known in James river. As to the impertinent inquiries of a per sonal "nature/ every man knows that there is but little comfort left to ave aave the de ference which is due, and all well-bred peo ple accord, to it. And Ave are not impolitic enough to diminish the amouot of this de ference by untimely confessions. As to the time of birth, as that covers all the other questions, let us say that in the time some years lnrt'ore the Revolution of '70 there came from the Piedmont region of Lord Colei'ej kk to the liveliest valley of the fair mountain land of Virginia a number of no ble ladies, escorted by the Knights of tie Golden Horseshoe. In that lovely valley amid the AJleghanies they were adored by the Knights of the Silver Bridle Reins. At the same time the Knights of the Golden TTTT ,mm . ' rHorse?*lioe found fair maidens, natives of the val%, bright as their moanteina, wear ing the rich hue* of health and grace con ferred by tho jfountfttn of strength and beauty in which ^Sey bathed. The* wo or dens of Knigirtefbmid&Yorwiib theangetfc representatives 4)1 ,the two sides ,of the mountains, arid fchappyday reigned In the volley with its bright streams, green mea dows, and lovely sliades. Well? we were not born about that time. The balance of this story will be given when the next great flood aa high as that of '77 shall happen. Judos Cox up fob the District.? The Dls? trict Convention for this congressional dis trict on Saturday nominated for Congress Judge James H. Cox, of Chesterfield. He is a strong, bold man, and as true as steel in nil situations in which ho may be placed. He will make a vigorous run, and carry as strong a poll as any man that could be named, we believe. He is a man of strong intellect, extensive information, and that sort of frankness, resolution, and courage, which will ensure respect and favor with I the people and a fair hearing for his caUsc. The trauds perpetrated upon the Touroee (North Carolina) letter, which was a fraud itself, have been the subject of several arti cles in the Tribune , and of two letters from Senator Abbott, and one each from Messrs. Holden and Tourqee. Tlie last letter of Abbot* acquits Holden of the Interpol tions in the Touroee letter? those which magnified allege^ Kuklux outrages into thousands instead of hundreds? although his first plainly inculpated him. The Tri bune, however, charge? that Gov. Holden* has involved himself in inconsistences from which it remains for him to extricate him self. The Tribune further takes occasion to say to the parties concerned " it will not " be convenient to have such accidents r< (gentle phrase for fraud) again befall the " Tribune A very nice little confusiou of facts it was by which the rebels were to be convicted of manifold crimes to increase the malice against them at the North j aiid involve theni in new pains and penalties by acts of Con- j gress. But the lying was too shameless and insupportable. Tourgee (not a good man by a long way) had to disown it; and the JW&ttrife to expose it. What an example of j cool villaiuy by men who are ever planning and maneuvering to rule the Southern peo ple and ^liiiider the public treasure. An official report affirms that the United States Treasury has received during the past year the sum of $83.1,39? sent to satisfy the kt consciences'* of men who have swin- ' died the Government oUt of that sum. ] Now what proportion do the honest men? I or men who have consciences? bear to the whole horde who have dealings with the Government ? It is impossible to answer ; but it would be safe to assume that not one in fifty of those who have robbed the Gov ernment has made restitution " The Scape Goat." By Leo.

He had a splendid house, and at the close of the piece? which, by-the-bv, was admirably put on? he waa called forth, and made a neat and appro priate little address. It is to be regi ctted that Mr. Forrest's engagement did not last longer, as he was jutst beginning to be ap preciated at its close. It is generally con ceded that Forrest in his palmiest days did not act as well as he does now. To-night Laura Keene opens with her superb company in the " School for Scan dal." This lady has remembered Richmond in its misfortune, and we trust that our peo ple will show their gratitude, as well as their appreciation of true merit, by giving her a warm reception.
