Tho Hanoverian army had surrendered to the
.Prussians, and been allowed to return to their
'homes.
A desperato battle had been fought in Bohemia,
near Nachod and Tranleneau. The accounts of
the battle were conflicting. A Berlin dispatch
claims that the Prussians drove the Austrian?? on
the 27th and 28th ult., capturing 8000 prisoners;
while Vienna telegrams olaim that the Austrian?
had captured 18 guns and many prisoners. In
the light of Tranleneau the Austrians are said to
have lost 4000 or 5000 killed and wounded, and the
Prussians 1000. There was great rejoioing at
Berlin over the alleged Prussian victory, and the
people presented an address to the King.
Vienna dispatches, on the other band, assert that
Benedek prevented the junction of Prince Fbede
biok CnAnL.Es with tho army of Silesia, and was
successful in the engagements of the 27th and the
'28th, killing and wounding a great number of the
ODomy. The London Times says that it is difficult
to decido the result. The notion was not decisive.
Reports from the Italian army, which has
changed its plan of operations, are indefinite.
Dkuuy Las boon forced to form a Cabinet ex
clusively Tory. Trouble is threatened among the

According to Prussian reports, they defeated
the Austrians at Nichod on tho 27th, and at Tran

On the other hand, the laut Austrian telegrama
. give tho following report: Pabdoblitz, June 29.?
The Prussians were completely defeated by the
AustrianB, undor Gubltjtz, leaving behind one
third of their army killed and wounded. They
withdrew toward the Prussian territory toward
Glatz. The iustriau cavalry.undor Qen. Ehei.heim,
drove the Prussians out of Jaeiu to Turliau, and
compelled them to evacuate Molinik and Lissa
and to retreat. The Prussian Iosb was enormous.
The Prussians here engaged were the army of
?the Elbe. The Prusaiau army on the Silesiau
frontier were commanded by the Crown Prince
Fbedebick William.
A Federal army was on the point of m arc hi i g
from Frankfort, and a battlo was anticipated. A
Cracow Austrian diepatcb eaye that the Prus
sians attacked Oawynten Juno 28, and were re
pulsed with heavy loss. Tbe Austrians acknowl
edge that the Prussians have destroyed their
railroads and seriously interrupted their com
munication with diftVmtit points.

The. Fourth of Jidy.? The day was very quietly
unobserved in this town. Several hundred freed
liion, attractod by tho bogus rumor of a sumptu
ous pic-nio, lounged about the streets until evon
ing, and then quietly disappeared, with disap
pointed expectations and empty stomachs. 8adly
and slowly Pompey and Dinah wended their way
homewards, none tho wiser for their experience,
and ready to bo misled to-morrow by the samo
ignis faluus.?Chester Standard.
2he Crops_Tho intenso heat of the past week,
with the long-continued drought, have sadly
damaged the crops and abridged the prospeots of
onr planters. Several of the moat experienced
and practical planters of this District pronounce
the opinion that the yield of corn will be less oven
than during the dry year of 1845. Should their
fears bo realized, great destitution and actual
suffering will be the resntt. The orop of cotton,
from various reasons, will not suffice to purchase
the breadstoffd that will bo required to meet the
wants of the citizons.?Chester Standard.
Public Meeting.?We are requested to give no
tico that a meeting of tho citizens of this District
will be held in the Court House, on Monday, the
16th July, for the parp?se of eliciting public sen
timent relative to the repeal of the Stay Law. As
the subject is of vital importance, a large and
general attendant? is solicited.?Chester Standard.
Court of Equity.?Title Court, which convened
on Monday, continues. Many important caee? have

Even tho Radicals of the Northwest are begln
i it if* to discover that if the old tariff was oppres

most rabid supporters of thofaetion now in potvor,
denounces the AmontUtory Tariff Bill as "a pure
scheme of plunder without the slightest excuse or
palliation," -and throatona to bold "every Western

The HI no Ridge Railroad.
Wo bavo been favored with tho following ox
traot from a letter written from Louisville, to a
gentloman in this city,?one of tho delegation
who rocontly visited Cincinnati. Ho says:
"I write you, thinking that certain information
which I obtained after you loft Louisville, in rela
tion to the probablo success of our mission to the
West, might prove interesting. I regained at
Louievillo until noon on Sunday. On Saturday
wont on 'Change, and at that place, bb well at
two or three social re-unions tendered us during
tho day and evening, couversod freely with gentle
men in relation to tho Blue Ridge Boad. Tho en
thusiasm in favor of it, and confidence in its early
construction, seemed to be increasing rapidly.
Mr. ?'mith, Prosidont of the Chamber of Com
merce, In formed mo that ho was having resolu
tions proparod, which would bo submitted and
adopted on Monday, the 25th Juno, indorsing tho
project, and asking tho City Council and authori
ties of tho Louisville and Nashville Railroad Co. to
appoint oaoh a committee to moot a committee of
the Chamber of Commerce, to consider and re
port upon tho whole aubjeot. This is putting the
'ball in motion' in the right direction, and with
assurances given me by Mr. Fink and membore
of tho Louievillo and Nashville Boad who we did
not meet whilst you were there, that thoy wore
determined to press the Lebenan Branch direct
to the Tonnoasee line, at the point of intersection
with Mr. MoQhee'b road from Enoxville, affords
groat encouragement.
"I returned to Cincinnati and spent Monday,
the 25th, there. Went on 'Change and conversed
fully with a number of gentlemen in relation to
our project. Colonel Cook, President of the
Board of Trade, informed me that the feeling in
favor of the early construction of our road was
becoming universal, and that he had entire con
fidence in its success. Mr. Glenn, who you will
remember, informed me that the subscriptions to
the one million loan has inoroaaod rapidly, and
would certainly be completed during the week
adding, that 'I (he) can say to you positively, that
the idea of applying tbe loans to the construction
of a road towards Chattanooga or Philadelphia,
has been abandoned, and it will certainly be used
in making a oonnootion directly with Charleston, by
j way of Knozville, whether south or north of
Enoxville I (he) cannot say.' This is certainly
encouraging."
The Radical* Darlnrc the War.
Tho following faota will show the citizens of the
United States tho procesa by which the Radicals
held possession of political power in the otates
during the recent war. At the election in 1?G4 for
President, State officers, members ot the Legisla
ture, and other officersiu Bholby county, Missouri,
the poll-books were taken out of the hands of the
judges and olerks by armed men, and so manipu
lated as to disfranchise fifty-one out of one hun
dred ami' thirty _-?e' vote&ftn that township,
The following is copied from the fly-leaf of the
poll-book of tbe precinct in question :
I, James 0. Hale, one of the clerks of the gene
ral election, had and hold, in tho State'of'Mis
souri, on tbe 8th day of November, 1804, and at
the voting precinct of Shelblna, in Shelby Coun
ty, Missouri, do hereby certify that the foregoing
is the identical vote taken and poll-book made out
by the judges and clerks of said emotion at said
precinct. I further certify, that the day after said
election, and before return had been'mado of tbe
poll-books, to wit: On the Oth day of November,
tbe said judges and olerks, to wit: W. W. Wethor
bv, H. D. Smith and David Wood, Judges: and
Morris Goodman and the undersigned, Clerks,
wore arrested by one Colonel Staff Graham, who
bad with him four or five armed men, and taken
with said poll-book to Shelby ville, before John F.
Benjamin, under whose threats of imprisonment
and direction (he, Bonjamin, at the Bame time
producing a blank poll-book) the judges and clerks
made out a now poll-book, leaviug off of it such
names an were directed by said Benjamin and
Graham?all the names marked with red "8. S."?
a? d "rob" and such as are marked challenged?so
that, out of one hundred and thirty-throe votos,
flfty-one were left off or dropped from the new
b?oks. This was done at what scorned to be Ben
jamin's headquarters (the Circuit Clerk's office)
ooUeen the hours of 7 and 11 o'olook at night.
Said Benjamin and Graham both claimed to bo
commanding tho militia of Sholby County, a con
siderable number of whom wero then quartered
in the Court House. J. 0. HALE.
Cannot say that he, Bonjamin, was commission
ed by any authority on earth, but thore wort
armed men in Sholby villu who obeyed his behests.
J. 0. HALE.
By such outrages as this upon tho purity of the
ballot box, the Radicals obtained the majority, by
which they are now preventing the Union from
being restored, and passing laws intended to
change our republican form of government to a
despotism.

Missodbi Appoints Delegates to the National
Convention?Who They abb.?We learn from the
New York News that Missouri bas taken the lead
in the appointment of dclogates to the Convention
which ia to meet at Philadelphia on the 14th of
August, tho great Conservative State Convention
which met at St. Louis, on the 8d instant, having
appointed a full set of delegates from the Stato at
large and from each of the Congressional Dis
tricts.
The delegates selootod, says the News, repre
sent every shade of conservative opinion, and
were clearly selected without any regard to past
party affiliations. Amongst them may be recog
nized many who have beon prominont in national
Eol?tica. The Hon. John Ilogan and Hon. Thos.
L Nooll aro members of tbe present Congress?
tbe former a Democrat, the latter a Republican.
Willard P. Hall, F. A. Rozler, James S. Rollins,
Louis V. Bogy, Thomas L- Price, William A. Hall,
Qilobrlat Porter, Robert Wilson, and others have
filled important offices, both Federal and Stato,
and have long beon potent in their respectivo par
ties, while the bar sends its chiefest ornaments in
tbe porsons of Samuel T. Glover, Albert Todd,
James O. Broadhead, and others scarcely lees dis
tinguished tor learning and virtues. While a
majority of the delegates bavo been Republicans,
ana voted for Lincoln, we find among the minority
many who have always adhered to the Domocratio
party, and who have uovor bont the knee to Baal.
No more auspicious beginning of the caraj,?.igu
against tho Radicals could have been mide than
that which the Conservatives of Missouri have
thus initiated. It insures their victory in that
great State, and gives to the Philadelphia Con
vention a prestige of auoceis whioh everything
conspires to mane brighter and more hopeful

to nominate county officers. In both cases tho
call is addroaaod to "Domocrats and all others
who will support the principles of reconstruction,
as sot forth by President Johnson."

for the ratification or rejection of the amondod
constitution, on the first Thursday in August.
Westbbn Viboinia, or the forty-eight counties,
including the Pan-handlo, "designated as Western
Virginia," is in the hands of a Radical "Stato
Executive Committee," which calla a "Union"
State Convention at Parkorsburg, August 30. This
convention, in addition to selecting Stato officers,
will nominate Congressmen, and preliminary
township meetings aro ordered August 9.

Iowa against Oenoral Dodoe for Congress, and
that Senator Doouttle will stump the First Dis

Tennessee.?A Radical Nashvillo papor, edited
by a Massachusetts Southerner, tells this story:?
"Under tho Governor's proclamation, tho Legis
lature is expected to meet to-day for tho purposo
of ratifying tho new Constitutional Amendment."
For tho purpose of ratifying?of course.
The Amend?tent Out West.?Tho Burlington
(Iowa) LTawkeye "is authorized by Governor
Stone to say" that he has been personally assur
ed by Governor Oqlesby, of Illinois, and Governor
Fletcueb, of Missouri, that they do not intend to
call extra sossions of tho Legisla tare in t hoir re
spective States for the purpose of ratifying tho
Constitutional Amendment.
Illinois.?A call has been issned by Generals
Looan, Palmee, Hayne, and other soldiers of Illi
nois, for a masB convention of the "Grand Army
of the Republic" o? Illinois? a political organiza
tion of military mo-_?to be hold at Springfield on
on the 12th of next; month.
Abkansas_The Radic**i** of the present Legisla
ture will havo to make "hot haste" to obtain the
ratification of the Constitutional Amendment by
Arkansas. A letter from Little Rock of tho 19tb
ult., says : "A general election is to bo held in
this State for Congressmen, members of the Gene
ral Assembly, ?be., some time in August. I am
told that, as a general thing, thoro is not tho
asnal stir and noise that, in other times, preceded
auch occasions. It is reported that there ?b a se
cret organization extending throughout tho State
with the object of securing the election of the
Radical candidates. As the disfi-anchising law
has been decided to be unconstitutional, and as
all free white men are now entitled to vote, it is
not to be snppossd that this movement on the
part of the Radicals will amount to much. It
seems to bo (he universal opinion that, in almost
ovory district and county, the "representative'
men of the South will bo eleoted with little or no
opposition."

Tbc Pm alr.n --Needle*' Gun.
As this weapon, vhioh was referred to in the
telegrapbio dispatches published on yesterday,
will in all probability be frequently mentioned
during the course of the present European war,
a few words In description of its plan and princi
ples will not be out of place.
The cartridge used in the "Needle" gun is made
of stiff card-board, the ball, powder and explosive
composition being contained in one and the same
cylinder. Its great peculiarity is that tho deto
nating powder is plaoed immediately in re r of
the base of the ball and between it aud the pow
der.
Tho advantage of this is, that whon tho powdor
i is ignited that portion next the ball in which com
bustion is first perfected exerts its full force upon
the projectile, the powder in rear also exerting its
influence, as it becomes almost Bimultaneoualv
ignited. Under tho prtaent Bystem, in which that
part of the powder next to the breech of the gun
ib first ignited, a portion of the powder is fre
quently expelled from the gun with tho ball in a
condition of only partial combustion, the explo
sive force of the powder first consumed being
adequate to expel the ball and the powder in its
front bofore the whole charge has timo to bo
come entirely ignited. ThiiB in the "Needle" gun
all the powder is consumed, and applied to the
beet effect, aud so as to obtain its fullo.-t force at
the same instant and in tho same direction.
The "Needle'' gun is a breech-loader; and when
the trigger is pulled, a stout "needle" or wiro is
thrust through the base of the cartridge, parallel
with its axis, into the detonating charge by the
ball, oauBlng its explosion and the ignition of the
cartridge.
In accuracy the "Needle" gun cannot be sur
Easaod, and its effective range is said to be about
fteen hundred yards. It is, however, doubtful
whether it will be fount to bear with impunity the
necessarily rough treatment of an active cam
paign.
The Prussian J?gers and sharpshooters gene
rally are armed with this formidable weapon, and
upon a skirmish line, when it can be nsed with
oare and deliberation, it must prove highly effec
tive.? Richmond Times,

Cotton Fibes.?A Sdooestiom in Relation to
the Handling or Cotton.- A gentleman at En
fat?a, Ala., of wido experience in the handling and
insnranoe of cotton, and having unusual facilities
for observation in regard to that staple, states it
as his conviotion that the defeolivo covering of
the bales sent to market from the interior since
the close of the rebellion has been a prolific canee
of tho cotton fires. He says "tho bales are gen
erally made so heavy that the bagging intending
to cover thoni cannot reach ronnd in some cases
more than two-thirds, leaving the exposed part
an easy prey to the incendiary or accidental spark.
Tho resources of planters are still slender, and
rope and bagging, storage and freight are higher.
We may expect to see this bad praotice still more
generally adopted tho coming season." Be sug
gest? as one romody, "that the insurance compa
nies, fire and marine, agree to take no risks upon
cotton when the bales exceed 400 lbs. each, or
encb other weight as will secure its being entirely
and perfectly covered. Bayers would give such
cotton the preference, s'nee it only could be in
sured, and the result of each aotlon would be for
tho benefit of all concerned. Factors, warehouse
men, and boat owners would heartily'join in such
a movement, and prohibitory charges would soon
be laid on heavy bales in warehouses or in transit,
and they would ultimately disappear and give
room to moro manageable and safer package?."

Is Health Worth Having:?
If it is, protect it. it is a jewel as easily lost ?* vir
tue, and In some cases aa difflcult to recover. Nature,
in our climate, and especlall? at this season, requires
to be occasionally reinforced. But everything dependa
npon tbe tonto used for this purpose. Tbe medicinal
tinctures, all of which are bated on common alcohol, are
dangerous. Quinine, as everybody finds out who takes
much of it, la a slow poison. One safe protective from
all unhealthy atmoap !. trio in fluonoos exists and one only.
This powerful preventivo is HOSTBTTER'S CELE
BRATED 8TOMAOH BITTERS, a compound of the
purest stimulant ever manuiaoturcd, with tho most ef
fective tonics, alterativou, regulators, and depurators
that chemistry has yet extra-ted from tbe botatfea!
kingdom.-' Convalescents, languid and t> oble from re
cent sickness, will find tbo Bitters an incomparable
Reiterative, not disagreeable to tbo tasto, at?d emi
nently lnvigoratiag. No other stimulant proluoe^tb*
ame offeet as this Stom?oblo. It does not excite or
flatter tho nerves, or occasion any undue arterial
action; but at once soothes and strengthens (ho nervous
system and tho animal spirits. 6 ?Lily 9
