might be pumped. After the casing was put
in the sand-pump wus lowered fur the pur
pose of agitating the well, and the gas raised
a column of water, throwing a sblid stream
into the air a hundred feet. The noise was
terrific, and could be heard för a distance of
over two miles. The noise was something
like the loud roar of thunder, and when the
column bum at the top it threw the watet
each way for fifteen rods from thé Well. The
water was exhausted in about twenty -fiée

Political 1'ircnltu- from ttiv Democratic
Executive Committee of Kentucky.
Louisville, Xy:, August 7.—The Demo
cratic Executive Committee have issued a
circular to the Democrats of the United States
urging immediate organisation, for the pur
pose of supporting the principles of the party
as they will be proclaimed by die September
Convention at Louisville. The committee say
that the utter abandonment of principles as
evinced by a coalition between spoilsmen and
place-hunters in their attempt to elevate
Greeley to the Presidency, is a sad evidence
of demoralization and corruption, based as
the bargain is upon fraud and liypocracy, and
the utterance of opg set of sentiments in the
North and another in the South. It must be
repudiated and spurned by cveiy man
has a spark of honesty in his heart "
, _____ Thére
are hundreds of thousands who already pro
claim their purpose of maintaining the Demo
cratic organization at all hazards. The dis
integration of the Radical party into two fac
tious renders it self-evident that the Demo
cratic masses can elect one of their own faith
instead of a life-long enemy like Greeley, who
still loudly asserts that he lias never aban
doned bis principles, and points proudly yet
to bis record—and sncli a record ! Can Dem
ocrats, who have boasted that they snpport
principles and notmenrtlgrerto falsify their
past life by clasping hands arith tl** worst of
the Radical party—Sumner, Schurz, Trum
bull, Fentoti j and the thousand other leaders'
who rally around Greeley* aid would control

Whose fraudulent acts and Villainous State
legislation has been denounced in Democratic
papers lrom Maine to Texas, istheleader
par excellence of the chivalry of the South.
Ills influence at Cincinnati and the sixteen
Votes of his delegation, insured the nomina
tion of Greeley. Yet, We arc coolly informed
tliat the people have done it with enthusiasm,
Warmouth cau by fraud elect who he chooses,
just as the Mayor of New York Las the de
ciding vote iu 'appointing all return officer^ !
The committee declare that it is tbë purpose
to carry the election there and iu other States,
where practicable, by fraud, and protest
against it as no better method of securing the
liberty of Ute people than by the use of parti
san laws, originated by prominent leaders of
Greeley's party, to be enforced by basnets
nnder the present: Administration. Tiiey de
clare that the South cannoUclfisp bands with
those wl;o have wronged them from the ter
mination of the war; that Northern Demo
crats cannot but condemn the offenses of men
like Pease, of Texas, and llice, of Arkansas,
or load with honors Gratz Brown, who, In
1863, out done Herod for disfranchisement
and persecution, and only recanted when au
office was to be obtained. They notice ftther
leaders of the Greelej%movement : Blair, who
came into the party to destroy it, and nobly
has be fulfilled his mission; Schurz, who
Was the loudest of all to sweep the South with
the besom of destruction, and viewed the
election of a Democrat as the worst calamity
to befall the country only six months ago;
McNeel, the butcher of an unnrmcd prisoner
in Kentucky, as well as Burbrklge, the most
detested of all its citizens; in Georgia, Brown,
who as an official during the war and since
under the corrupt administration of Bollock,
which has plundered toe State of millions of
dollars, has been and is accused of using Ida
official station for private gain.
Against a nnion with sncli men, and
against their use of the Democratic name,
the committee protest and declare their be
lief that the people will condemn the corrupt
bargain. As ttoe oaly precedent, they sav, in
history for the selection of a deserter for u
commander-in-chief is that of. Coriolamls,
and for the Democrats the comparison 1 b un
fortunate, as Coriolanus betrayed bis army
and saved 4tome when she was prostrate at
his feet. So Greeley, with Sumner and other
negro social equality champions, isreindoreed
with emphasis since bis nomination, with the
truculent advisers of centralization and tyran
ical oppression of their adversaries and uncom
promising enemies, that constitution which
to them is a league with hell and a covenant
with death, are ready to do anything for
power and place, and will unscrupulously
betray their own followers if recessary for
their own advancement, even in the hour of
victory. They declare that the-Democratic
K y is the party of the future, «id that its
s*ty of purpose' will auraet mé support of
the mass», and that its future wifi be crown
ed with success.
The circular concludes with a recommen

ORATE BROWN IN NEW HAVEN.
The True Starr of Hi* Slcknea Told bf
one whs wsi there. . il
From the New Haven Palladium, July STth.
We have kept aloof from the discussion
concerning Gratz Brown's performances dar
ing his recent visit to New Haven, intending
to nave something to say when the proper
moment came. Jhe nitfratiye we publish be
low contains nothing widen we have not
known—and, indeed, our knowledge has been
shared by several others—for several weeks,
but we preferred not to give it to the public
till we could presept it m such a shape as
must end controversy. That it must do so
will, we ar sure, be admitted by all candid
rpaders. At all events, Governor Brown's
friends have now the opportunity they ought
to desire, if any of them are sincere in as
serting that his condition while in New Hav
en was such as becomes a candidate for a
high and responsible office. Were he not a
candidate for office, his offense against de
cency and public morality might be passed
over in silence; being a candidate, it is our
duty to let tÿe people know what manner or
man is soliciting their votes. Were he the
candidate of the Republican party we should
pursue precisely the same course, ohly in
that event we should also refuse to support
him, and call upon him to resign ids candi
dature. „ We may add that probably the!

Horace Clrcsley'* Wedding.
Tire thirty-sixth anniversary of Horace
Greeley's wedding, occurred on the (hh of .Inly.
It took place in Warrenton, North Carolina,
in 1836, when he was united to Miss Mary G.
Cheney, a young lady of remarkably fine per-'
sou and nscompllshments, a native of New
England, who was engaged in teaching in
that place. 81ie was no dpubt affianced to
Mr. Greeley before she left her North, ra
home, as tradition and the recollection of the
oldest inhabitant furnishes no evklence of a
K 'or visit of that gentleman to Warrenton.
e ceremony was performed by Rev. Wil
liam J. Norwood, in the modest little Episco
pal of which he was then rector, and which
still stands embowered among a gfovfe" of
Roble elms and aspens. The bridesmaid wrs
M iss Elizabeth Bragg, sister of the late Gov
ernor and Senator of that name, and Gen.
Braxton Bragg. Her attendant, Aicxader
Yancey became her future husband, and the
happÿ couple emigrated to .West Tennessee
many years ago. Mr. Norwood still lives as
rector of a church in Richmond. The most
curious circumstance connected with the event
is the ancient legal requirement which it re
calls. In colonial times, when too currency
consisted of pounds, shillings and pence, the
law made it necessary to giTe bond that there
existed no lawful canso or impediment to ob
struct the marriage; and among these imped
iments extreme poverty and incapacity to
support a family, whereby tlie parish, might
be involved in expense was one. lienee tbe
necessity for a bqjgyj.. ' Qg - i^yeument is still
in existence. ,. _ ............ .
—This is the way they do it in Grand
Haven, Mich., according ten Um HtraUi :
"The other night a young man propounded

ingenuity df the Chinese in a rather peculiar
manner. Micky McDaniels, as he is famil

occasionally get into the slough and stray
away to the Chinese vegetable gardens which
border this pleasant pool. Doubtless they
would help themselves to John's cabbage on
these predatory excursions, for it is well
known that the descendants of Rome's ancient
preservers have a fondness for this article.
The plan hit upon by John to prevent them
from gratifying their natural propensities
was ingenius «id novel, and remained undis
covered until a few days since. Several geese
belonging to McDaniels bad died and no rea
son could be assigned for this strange pro
cedure on their part, for they were fat and
healthy, and a goose is supposed to be a long
lived fowl. But when they were driven up
to be picked too mystery was solved. Four
of the birds wölb found gagged In a singular
manner—and brie which can hardly bo de

Chicago, August 7.— Gen. John a Dix, in
a letter declining to attend tlie Greeley meet
ing, gives the following reasons why he is
opposed to that gentleman : First. Because
I believe him to be as uustablc as witter, per
petually floundering, to carry out the scrip
tural flgnre, amid the surges of opinion, and
deficient in all the requisites essential to h
firm and . consistent administration of the
government. 2d. Because he has usually
beim found among the most extreme ultraists
on tlie great questions of political and soclàl
dntÿ, whioi* have beim brought under public
discussion during the last quarter of a cen
thc advocate,
of that most
ijust and Unequal Conöhercial system which
is destroying our mercantile and shipping in
terests and heaping tip enonnotramccumula
tious of wealth ih the hands of the protected
classes and the impoverishment of ail others.
4tU. Because he is associated in relations
niöre or less intimate with some of the chief
plunderers of tlie city of New York, justly
warranting toe apprehension that through
his complicity, with his facile disposition,
the same system of fraud or corruption,
which has disgraced the municipal govern
ment of this city may be carried to more in
famous extremes in the administratibn of the
Federt) Government 5th. Because in the
darkest hour of the counter's peril, when a
traitorous combination had been formed to
ovcrthroRMbe government, 'he open!
seled the cowardly policy of non-res!
and in acquiescence to tbe dissolution of the
Union whenever the cotton States should
make up thdfr tnmdS'TCTgo.
