The lllot in t'uiiillLi, Ceorglu From St. Louis Republican, "8th ult ] A feeble attempt is being made, upon the basis of a cooked-up Frcod men's Bureau report of the late Camilla affair in (icorgia, to tnako capital for the Radical party. 'This will prove nit up hill work. The committee sent to the scene of the riot by the ltnreau author ities reported that the blame attached to the negroes and the carpet-baggers. The Legislature of fieorgia (Radical) refused to call upon the President for troops to keep the peace, believing that conrse to be unnecessary, and, alto gether, people who know the facts con demn the misguided freedmen as re sponsible for the blood that was shed. The following is the minority report, which docs not attempt to controvert the statements of the majority, but nlulosophizes on tlie condition of mat ters generally: Mr. Speaker :—Tin? undersigned member of the committee appointed by the House of Representatives, ap pointed (under a resolution from the Senate and concurred in by the House) to join the committee appointed by the Senate, asks to be allowed to make the . following minority report: Waiving nil dispute and controversy | as to who or what party was at fault that caused the deplorable affray in the town of Camilla, in Mitchell‘county, I have been forced to the conclusion, fry in the investigation, (bat there exists in that community such animosity of feeling between the parties in that sec tion of the country as places the peace j and safety of both races in the most I imminent peril; and, indeed, the un dersigned is not without apprehension ; that the same may be said of entire State, and especially where our popu lation is mixed to any very consider able extent. It must be apparent to the most in-j different, observer that the negro feels | disappointed and is exasperated, in j '.uniig id uuiiuii me punucai lignis j ami privileges that he anticipated un- , dor our new Constitution, whilst otv> ! the other hand, much the larger por tion of the white people feel that he is claiming privileges and aspiring to po sitions which lie is totally unfit to oe ■upy and which they regard as degrad ing : u the white rare. Therefore it i but natural that each party should feel a deep and abiding interest in the re sult of the approaching election, as each regards the success of their party as an important step in settling the dis rate In their favor. These being the feeling- and sentiments of eaeli party, the undersigned feels that ho should hare been unfaithful to the people of all races, to himself and family, had lie failed, or should he in future fail, to 'iso all i unsuitable efforts to postpone :iil a more quiet time all questions and | measures calculated to arouse and in- j fluciiee the passions of tlie people. May we not trust that the General ! V setlibly will from henceforth use all , means within their power to allay the passions of the people. Kntortaiuiug serious apprehensions that like occur rences may transpire within the limits of our State, it is trusted that the llouso will at least attribute honest and dneere motives to the undersigned u lieu ho implores them, 11% they love our great old Commonwealth, as they love the people of the State, for the sake of the quiet and comfort of those near and dear to them, that this subject may receive that consideration that is due to a matter of such vital impor tance. Let men of all parties endeavor to meet on some common ground, en deavor to provide some measure that will give peace and rest to the troubled and excited mind of the people. The undersigned will not undertake even to suggest the measures, but be lieve- that with the powerabiding with us, as legislators, there is hut one thing necessary and that is. that we should be made aware of tbo importance of the subject, and that then the wisdom and patriotism of this and tho other branch of the General Assembly may ! be safely trusted to put forth tho pro- j per remedy. MAltlON RETIIUNE. Tho Atlrnta New Era, a Republican paper, which supports Grant and Col fax, alter referring to the reports in circulation abqtit the Camilla affair, says: Wc have understood tiiat Joiner, the | freedman, in his harangues, has some times so far over-stepped the bounds -Cri1 j.!■ .. In iinlnlirn in lmii/nairo ! calculated to Inflame hiseolored friends. I This is to be deprecated, ns it works ' injury to the Republican cause, as well ! as to himself and bis friends. This] course should, and wo hope will he, promptly rebuked. Republicans pro fess to bo conservative, and wish to promote the best interest and highest good of the colored population; this cannot be done by arousing tho pass ions of the latter against their former owners. Oil the other hand, these for mer owners must remember that those once belonging to them have now the unchallenged right, equally with them selves, to hold political opinions, and to assemble and discuss, or bear dis cussed, political question* without hin drance or molestation. Ill what we have written we have only to do with the facts as stated in connection with what we know ol tho feeling in many purls ot Georgia and the South. In the absence of all the testimony, we refrain from expressing an opinion as to which party was real ly ill the wrong, and from attaching b’laino to either. YVe would suggest to both parties, in conclusion, that intem perate language and hasty conclusions should be avoided by political dispu tants—the utmost forbearance cultiva ted ; and, above all, the exercise of the wisest discretion in action. (•or. Seymour and (be Sotdlers. Among the charges brought against Gov. Seymour by the Kadicals, aside from his being a copperhead, &c., is one claiming that he was the enemy of the soldiers. Of course there is no proof upon which to base this slander, but that of course will make ho differ ence with thoso whose business it is to carry on a campaign of defamation. In (he midst of the war—while many thousands of New York soldiers were away from their homes, and exposed to the dangers of campaigning, and while there was distress and mourning among thousands of destitute families left behind—Gov. Seymour issued the following Thanks-giring proclamation, wherein are expressed the noblest and most patriotic of sentiments : PROCLAMATION. By Horatio Seymour, Governor of the Stale of New York : In accordance with the 'chsto'ms find laws of the State, I, Horatio ScyTftOTir, Governor of the State of New York, do hereby designate Thursday, the 26th 5list., to be a day of Thankgiving and Prayer, and I hereby declare the same to be a legal holiday. In the midst of calamities brought iilioii our country hv the wickedness, folly and crimes of men, we have rea son to lie thankful to Almighty God for abundant harvests, for exemption from pestilence, and for the preserva tion of our Sifitc from the devastation of war which effects otlici' sections of our land. Let us offer fervent prayers that rebellion may be put down, our I'nion saved, our liberties preserved and our Const it lit ion and Government upheld. Asa becoming proof ofthank fuIness to God, anil as a proper evi dence of our gratitude to the armies 4nd navy, I urge our citizens to make contributions on that day for the com fort' and support of the destitute fami lies of those who have lost their lives .... i. i--— a:1.1...l *i,.. of tlieir country, lit the midst of our abundance let us remember charity to those tvlio are in tvfnit, and in the hour set apart for social and religions thanksgiving and praise within the limits of the State, let us encourage those who are engaged on distant and ! m-crous fields of duty by showing sympathy and kindness towards tlieir families, who need our aid and support, j In witness whereof, I have hereunto | set niv hand and nWxed the [sku.] privy seal, at the city of Albany, this tenth day of November, in tlin year of our Lord, one thousand, eight hundred and sixty-three.

To this end end a copy of the Gover nor’s thanksgiving proclamation is for warded to the commandant of each regiment, battalion and battery of New York volunteers now in the service of the General Government, that a proper j observance of the day designated there in may be kept in tlieir several ramps. HORATIO SEYMOUR. Governor and Comrnuiider-iit-Chief. John T. SpuAont, Adjt. General. This proclamation speaks for itself. It needs no explanation of comment. rtranlcal Conduct ot Itrlgliam Young. From the Salt Lake Reporter, Sept. 18th.] Wo are informed that Brigham Young has given orders to Bishops, throughout the Territory, to cut oil' from the Mormon Church every mem ber who dealff at a Gentile store, or purchases of au outsider. We have tho north, that preaching upon that subject had been dono at Ogden and oilier places. This is but a part of the plan arranged by Brigham, and carried out by his subordinates, to place an ef fectual embargo upon tbo location of Gentile business men in this Territory ; and which would be made a total pro hibition hail they power to enforce it. It has been tho constant aim and »b-~ ject of tho Mormon leaders to keep out Gentiles and prevent them from selling in this Territory. To suoh an extent was tliia formerly carried that Mor mons were even prohibited from rent ing houses to Gentiles; and several who dared to brave the displeasure of their rulers were considered as apos tates. Lately, owing to force of cir cumstances, the rigor of that rule has been somewhat relaxed in this city, al though tlie intolerant feeling towards Gentiles upon the part of Church au thorities, stillXJxists in the country set ! tlcments ol Utah, it now seems to be cropping out afresh, coupled with a I determination, if possible, to drive Gentile traders out of Utah. Preaching 1 against the Gentiles is indulged in to a far greater extent in tho country sstil* nieuts than would bo considered pro dcut in the Tabernacle at Salt l-akc City. Thus while mntters are kept quiet at Mormon headquarters, to pull wool over the eyes of some, elsewhere the anathemas against outsiders and the Government are as loud as ever Eloquent Extract. Writing of the “closing scenes” in the history of Geif^rhl Lee's army, J. Quitman Moore, Ksq., thus thrills a chord that will vibrate forever—thus bequeaths a gem to the literature of the South: “There stood the mournful remnants of that once glorious army that had dipped its conquering banners in the crimson tide of eight and twenty san guinary battles, and strewn its heroic slain from the feet of the Pennsylvania mountains to the gates of own capital city ; that had given Manassas to Beau regard, and twined the fame of the Seven Pines’ battle in the laurel wreath of Johnston ; that had cause the waters of the Shenandoah eternally to murmur the fame of Stonewall Jackson, and stretching its right arm out to the dis tant West had planted victory on the drooping banners Of Bragg; that had witnessed foUr gigantic cainpaigns and through all their shifting and tragic scenes, and under all difficulties and dangers had rcnfiaiucd steadfast and faithfhl to the last. And after having witnessed the rising of the Southern constellation, as it loomed up brightly on the horizon of war, pursuing to its splendid zenith the fiery paths of Mars, now beheld not unmoved its declining splendors going down in the gloom of eternal night. And he, its illustrious chief, whose lofty plume was .ever its rallying point in battle, afid around whom its affections warmly clustered, now commended it for its past devo tion, and bade it adieu forever. Slow ly and sadly he rode front that mourn ful field, and the cause that he fought for was beneath Ihe foot of power. Few wore the eyes that grew not moist at witnessing that departure. It was the agony of a great cause finding ex pression in the sublime soul of its great defender. And thofigh that cause bo (lend, yet will its memory continue to live, and ever honOVcd 'will lie those names that saerafieed at its altars. And on the scroll of fame rro name among the list of 'eminent worthies NviK Shine in a purer, serener, or more resplendent light than that of liobert Edmund I.ec. Ilis fame is monumental, llis name ! will be placed by the side of those of j the great 'captain* 'Of lusVOry—Of Marl borough and Saxe, of Tilly and Eugene ; i and as long as the fame of the Southern j struggle shall linger in tradition and j song, will his memory be cherished by ; the esccndants Of the Southern races; while his character will stand Up in the twilight of history like some grand old cathedral, lifting itself in imperishable beauty above the objects of earth, ma jestic in its vast proportions, awful in its solemn stateliness, sublime in its | severe simplicity.” How it I’eclt ol Corn Meal Is Taxed. The (Jallipolis Dispatch, in answer to i the charge that because a man is poor he ; cannot bo taxed, thus shows how even a peek of meal, purchased by a poor man to aid in feeding bis family of little children, is taxed, to aid in paying the interest on the untaxed bonds. Says the Dispatch : “The corn from which that peek hf meal was made was raised on taxed land, plowed by a taxed plow, drawn by horses, hitched with taxed gears. It was hoed with a taxed hoe, cultivated with taxed implements, gathered with a taxed wagon, drawn with taxed horses, thrown into a taxed crib, shelled on a taxed machine, measured in a taxed measure, taken iu a taxed sack and ground on a taxed mill, sieved with a taxed sieve, mixed in a taxed pan, stirred with a taxed spoon, salted with taxed salt, put into a taxed bake pan, baked in a taxed stove, laid out on taxed plate, cut with a taxed knife, and lastly eaten by a pretty heavily taxed man. “If it were not for the taxes you could buy a bushel of meal for what that peek cost you. Besides it is uot on that alone that you are taxed, but Upou everything you have to buy. A pound of sugar costs IS or 4 cento, but you have to pay troin 10 j to 20. A pound of coffee only costs 10 ' ceuto but you have to pay 30, and if it costs you three hundred dollars a year to support your family, you may safely say I one half of this is tax. Now, is it any wonder that times are hard and that you find it difficult to live ■— Kudltul seruion. Blessed are the proud, and govern ment contractors, for theirs is the king dom of greenbacks.

From the N. Y. Sun, 9th ult.] There was a brave "time at John Al len’s prayer-meeting yesterday. The crowd stretched away across the street, for the ho’ufcc could not contain a tithe of the multitude. John Was there, but not the same John that was seen and scrutinized on previous days. He was a changed man. Joint had experienced religion, and made an open profession of the faith that was in him. Hu spoke modestly, said he had really found the Savior, and was “going to stick by him as long as he lived,” hoping that when he died the Savior would “stick by” him in return. He poured out his soul in prayer. Words simple and full of feeling poured from his Tips. There was seemingly no buncombe abotit it. If there tvaa, nbnc know it but John Alien and his Goa. The excitement of the frtdicnee knew no bounds. The worst sort 6f pcoplfc, Vhfit tmder ordin ary circumstances would be intracta ble to religion, were apparently soften ed. Of course 'there tvks a loud chorus of “Amen»,” ‘^Glory be to God,” “Bless the Lord,” and other ejaculations from the lips of the pious. The missionaries were in ecstasies and shouted lustily and long. The end they had been praying and working for was gained. Allen was a Christian outwardly any how-. A et.nous coincidence in fist be recorded in connection with the con version of the Wickedest Man. On Monday the usual weekly conference of Methodist ministers was held in Mulberry street, and one of the num ber related the \vondcrful story of Al len. An impromptu prayer-meeting was organized, and Allen was the sub ject of the supplications. Without be ing aware of these entreaties, on the following morning John shook hands forever, as lie says, with his past life, and turned oVcr a new leal in the book of his existence. The floodgates of religion seem to have opened wide in Water street, ami if they vein a in open ‘the vice and wick edness that abound there may be wash ed away as by a mighty torrent. The seed, sown is bearing fruit already. Tommy Hadden, tlie notorious Tom my, Who was always known to keep the lowest hell in that infernal region, is beginning to feel uneasy. He vol unteered the use of his parlor for a meeting, and it has been accepted, hit Hums is alarmed too. He wants to be stWY'C'd tip with a long anil sharp stick, for Kit is a Imnl one. For pure wick edness he can hardly be beaten, any more than for brindled pups. ‘ Soger' Brown, who acquired bis military title front iiis “sojcViug” qualifications, lias deserted Hie devil's army, and is flee ing for safety into the ranks of the Church militant. Thtts prospers the Water Street Revival. Curtin oh Seymour. Governor Curtin, of Pennsylvania, was asked in the Vuion-League Club house at Philadelphia what lie thought of Horatio Seymour, lie replied: “Well, sir, if 1 were asked to mention a ittan, who, in nty estimation, possess ed the attributes of a perfect gentle man, a cultivated scholar, a thorough statesman, and a sincere Christian, 1 would, without hesitation,name Hora tio Seymour, of New York.” “How abottt Seymour's loyalty?” continued the questioner. “After the despatches 1 setit Seymour at the time of the rebel raid into Pennsylvania,” replied the Governor, “it would hardly become me to impugn his loyalty j the fact is, I have never doubted it. I understand that BeliUUnt is having all the des patches sent by Stanton and myself printed, and I liaVe no doubt they will be in the hands Of every Democratic stump speaker thVottgh the campaign. We mid butter give up attacking Scy mottr's loyalty, fot- the Opposition hold the trump card in that matter.” This is good advice ; but it cannot profit the Governor's party. The “Opposition” not only “bold the trump card in that matter”, but have already taken the trick ( and that trick decides the game, The game is virtu ally up; and it is ours. All that we now have to do is to keep from being cheated out of it.—[Lou. Journal. An Usuraace Incident. A Xew York letter In a Western pa per has this item : , “Two years ago l met a Californian, who win hlowu up on the steamer Voaeinlle, ou the Sacramento river, some time about the year istio.

Wo dip the following from the New Orleans Tin.es, in regard to the trouble likely to arise with the planters in the shipment of their new crop of cotton the coming season. It does seem that the trude of the South is never to bo free from these vampires that have well nigh drawn its life-blood : As we expected there is much incon venience and trouble to arise with planters Some of the cormorants, or vulturcst, tax eaters, and collectors hre Watching every shipment of cotton hither, to pounce on it if there is no certificate and oath to prove that it is the product of 1868, and of course not subject to taxes. These vul tures who will be deprived of office in three months will not take the word of an honest planter or cultivator without the farce of an oath being administered that the cotton proposed to be shipped was raised this year, picked, ginned and for warded to market by responsible parties, for sale us in former times. In the clearance of vessels with cotton the Col lector of Customs may probably require authentic documents that the cotton is ol this season’s yield. It is hoped the Col lector of the Customs, the high mandarin as in former times, will be as liberal as possible nnd extend all necessary indub gentles to tV.e shippers of cottof), and that the Collector of Interna! Taxes will not he too closO and extracting. It is to be hoped the Tax Collectors as well as Asses sors can discriminate and tell a hale of uew cotton from an old one?

In some counties land parishes there is not a wagon load oi | old cotton remaining. The I'lruturrs of an i:«titor. The following on the pleasures of an editor, purports to be a boy’s “compo I sitiou.” There arc, no doubt, several “grown up boys” who have about the same idea of the duties and the pleas ures of an editor: The editor is one of the happiest ani mals in the known world. He can go to ttic circus, afternoon and evening, without paying a cent; also to inquests and hangings. Me has free tickets to picnics and strawberry festivals, gets wedding cakes sent him, and sometimes gets a licking, but not often, for ho dtu take tilings back in the next issue, which lie generally docs. I never knew only one editor to gel licked, tiia paper busted that day, and ho couldn't take nothing back. While other folks have to go bed early, the editor can set up late every night, and see all that’s going on. The boys think it is a big tiling to bang on till ten o'clock. When 1 am a man 1 mean to be an editor, so I can stay out | nights. Then that will be bully. The editor don’t have to saw wood or do I any chopping, except with his scissors. Railroads get up excursions for him, knowing if they didn’t he’d make ’em git up and git. In polities he don’t caro much who he goes for, if they are on his side. If they aiu’t he goes for cm anyway; so 11 amouiiis 10 nearly the same thing. There is a great many people trying to be editors who can’t, and some of them have boon in the pro fession for years. They can't sec it though. If I was asked if I had rather have uu education or he a circus-rider, 1 would say, let me go ami be an edi tor. Treasure Hunting.—Some years ago, that is to say' in 1702, a .Spanish vessel laden with untold treasure, which is estimated at £70,000,000, sunk near the Spanish coast. About those ; days an Anglo-Dutch fleet was in Span i ish waters engaged in the cheerful work of destroying cities and towns. While they were in front of Cadiz, the Spanish vessels from the Indies ar ' rived, and being unable to get mte-V-a diz, they sailed for Vigo, where they arrived in safety. One of the vessels \ of this Indian fleet was heavily loaded 1 with gold and silver. This could not j he lauded without certain formalities. | and Spanish “red tape,” which was in those days more tangled than any “red tape” the world over, was put in re quisition. The “circumlocution ortlco” was set iu full blast, and the Spanish revenue officer, one Juan de 1-arrou, was so especially dilatory that the Dutch fleet came around from Cadi/ pitched into the Spaniards generally, ; seized thirteen ships, and sunk seven, 'one of which was the treasure ship. There the treasure lias laid for these ! one hundred ami sixty-six yosr», ami now a contract has beeu made with an American to raise tiie Spanish vessel and recover the treasure If possible It w ill lie an interesting search, and il the search is rewarded, Spain will hr I put in funds tiiat in 17o2 would hav< been quickly waited.—Ji. Y. Commer cial llou«i«*tiol<l There were never men whose wonder ful aud peculiar virtues commanded more the respect of enemies and friends than two Virginians, Washington and Lee, “rebels,” both. We may measure accu rately the virtues of a people who aro hero worshippers, by standards of supreme excellence which they hold up for the venration of themselves and children) There is hardly an abode of wealth or cabin of poverty in all the South whose interior walls are not decorated by costly or cheap memorials of Washington and Lee. A people with such standards of exalted public and private worth can never be false to themselves, their country or their God. That Southerners are passionate, impatient of wrong and resent ful of injuries, that they aro goaded to desperation by this unanticipated result of war, by which their former slaves become their political masters, and the vilest men that a continent has produced aro invested with supremacy, that they endure these Mklamitics with little patience, augments rather than lessons the respect that is their due among the brave and generous. There is unquestionable baseness of character and a development of the meanest phase of cowardly malignity in the conduct of those who revile or would deprive Southern people of civic rights, or degrade them t<5 a level with blacks. There may have been no cause for revolt or secession; Lee may have been misled by strong local attachments when he made war for Virginia and adhered to the weak against the strong, the Southern rebellion may have unwisely or wickedly precipitated by ambitious men cjocted r» i l 1 i I_ iium jiiatc, uuu uuu jraiiuuujjv uj the election of Lincoln; but it is not the less true that qualities developed in the conduct of Lee, Johnson, Jackson and their followers should command our own, as they surely will the admiration of pos terity. The whole country, and not a narrow section, should appropriate the fame of their names and virtues, even as the whole country most know that liber ality and generosity to the conquered can alone render the freedom of States and existence of the Union concurrent and j perpetual. • Whatever the number or violence of : local disturbances, that owe origin solely to barbarism and brutality in governments I established in the South, it should never | bo forgotten that while Washington aud j bee look down upou every fire-side in the South, reminding the people each hour, by their cloquont lives, of the sublimest pre cepts of virtue and honor ever practiced by men—wliilo these facts exist, no vio lent local outburst, no exhibition of hate for a Brownlow and demoniac misrule, can overshadow the great universal Southern fact that two of the most faultless men that have ever lived are deemed matchless models of human excellence. It is equal ly true that whenever these Southern peo ple east down their idols, uplift Warmoutlis and Brownluws and Joe Browns in their stead, then the South needs expurgation ; then, bayonets and blacks should reign.— St. Louis Times. TIk* Colton crop of India. The Calcutta correspondent of the Lon don Times writes on the 30th of July as follows : The same fall of rain which has been so heavy as first to save aud then threaten with inundation the grain crops of the Northwest, has rescued the cotton cultiva tion of Central India aud Berar. Mr. N. Uivett Carnac, the Cotton Commissioner, reports that cheerful accouuts have just hpeii reenivetl Prnm all tile districts whtrro three weeks ago, 1 saw the heavens as brass and the earth as iron. The rain, ! too, has expelled that cholera whieh was numbering its victims by hundreds in the fatal Nerbudda Valley, notorious for mure than one “cholera march" of our troops. ! The peasantry are now all busy sowiug or resowing the cotton The only drawback is that farmers, who, in the last few years, greatly extended their cultivation, have now contracted the area uuder cotton. More euroful cultivation, however, may he the result. Then the delay in the dowiijKiur of the moousoou is likely so to prolong it that the crop of uext spring will be beatiful—a state of things not ex - pwtod 44H UeHgsl ;.r..per, at born ilm no, hi. soon bogan too early.
