By the President: Hamilton Fish Secretary of State. Gardening and Sin. It was in connection with orcharding that sin came into the world. The sin ol slavery came in with cotton growing. Only that cotton was found profitable, or slave ry would have died a natural death. It wu fitting, perhaps, tot tha last nan 2 6k sale should have its connection closely related to the soil also.

On Saturday evening the officers and watchman of the Grafton bank, of Graf ton, Mass., which was recently robbed of a large amount of money and bonds, went to New York to identify, if possi ble, Wm. Dunn, the burglar whom Capt. Walsh had arrested on suspicion of being one ot the gang. A hotel keeper at Worcester, Mass , at whose house a party of men, supposed to be the bank thieves, took breakfast on the morning after the robbery, also ac companied the bank officers. The watchman failed to identify Dunn as one of the men who bound and gagged bim, aod the hotel-keeper was certain that Dunn was not of the party who took breakfast at his house. There being no evidence to warrant the further detention of the prisoner, Justice Dowliog, before who he was taken, discharged him. State Journal. St. Louis, Oct. 31. A fight be tween Tom Allen and James Gallagher will come off to-morrow, at the old battle ground, about 20 miles down the river. Both men are said to be in good condition.

Theexcurtionists who left here some days ago to visit the fairs at Atlanta and Augusta, have returned aftet a most enjoyable trip. We regret, as much as any body that affairs in New York, says an exchange, compel the Government to order soldiers to be in tho city 'on election day. I seems terrible that citizens in any part of the country cannot- go to the palls safety without the aid of the military But such is the case in New York city The Democratic papers are very much afraid there will be an honest vote, and they arc in a dreadful way.- If the city only polls a legal vote we will carry the State by at least 20,000.
