Harris. 1 tal pleasure in calling your attention i The Would as it is now conduct? under its new management. Askir your careful perusal of the enclesi circular and also of Tin: World durin the period for which it will be sent |toi Yours respectfully, W. A. Potter, Publisher. Some of the [many received at tb oflice have the name of the Hon. dob Randolph Tucker and some of Hoi John T. Harria. We would like to know now whethc these gentlemen, who are candidatesfc congress in Virginia as pronounce greenl ackers arc informed of what tb policy of the New York World is on thl question. There is uo paper in lb Vnited States thai has done more t< impoverish the people and keep then under the iron heeloi money syndicate: than the World and we arc apprehen sive this is bul part of a scheme to ge the paper inte the bands of the peoph ofjthc South to further lullaby them witl the howl ol civil service reform ant letalaelfgovernment while rinj away with every thing that toil and sweat and bloou can produce. This same WoKLD sold cut the party through Manten ?Marble and August Belniont. according te the shameful ad? missions of the former as its editor, in Order to keep the people in slavery, and we have as y< t no Indication of a change of its financial policy for government, or testimonial efb? il morality. If Judge Hauls and Mr. Tinker can ex? plain their endorsement of this organ of gold gamblers under the puise of de? mocracy they should do so at once. A greenbacker in Virginia cannot be ai endorser or canvass of th World. Nota bit of it. The;, - mean hypocracy some place when it i attempt) d. f: is worse than hypocracy It is tiit kiss of Iscarit to betray the-. whom they i rofess and pretend to serve li the people of the South want ? New York paper they can get th< ate weekly for 50 cents a year 01 21 cent- in clubs. Then they,will b?v< one that is honest, independent, demo cratic and under no Wall Street in fluence. It is superior to the World it everything except endorsements am approvals oi congressmen. The yellow fever is steadily decreasing i;i the South, in spite ot spasmodic re' turns of its fatal energy at a few point-. but the need for : '? very nearly as urgent as ever. As Secretary Me Crary says in his letter to Mayoi Langdon, of Detroit: "At all afflicted points, save New Orleans and Mem . the suffering and want are great, and I think increasing; and even in those cities more help may be required iu the near future. Jfou can scarcely go air I." This is only too* true, for tbe disorganization ol society and industry is only less dread? ful than the pestilence its If. Tin suffering o ol the poor an worse by this disorganization an<] by the death of so many Blrong men, whose fain .. belpli -.- and not able to support themselves. Busines? ?sin a state of stagnation, work often cannot be found, tbe fever has in many - paralyz ? the impulse to industry and these C ? continue to un? settle affairs and aggravate the public distress fot many weeks after tbe pesti? lence disappears. As Mr, McCrary well say?, "you amiss in tending : - ?a -an -. At time like the present when seme tearful disease is scourging the com try the most startling circumstances often attend a death. A few days ago it was anoenrced by telegraph that a young man who had been married on Thurs? day, was stricken with the fever on Fri? day, died on Saturday, and was buried on Sunday. In Alexandria a young man hadjusl re? ceived a pepei sent him by a friend in Memphis, and had hardly finished read? ing it ??'? .???? among the t?l?graph? ie dispatches of a lab r pap? ran account of his friend's death. With such rap? idity docs the scourge travel that we are every day startled by the strange incidents that attend it.?RicAwiomd Slat?. At Margarette, Mich., about nine o'clock last evening, during an exami? nation of w ? loro (oniii. ? er Maynard, in the ease of United States va, Samuel J. Tilden, tun men suddenly entered the *>mcc and seized the books of the New York Iron Mine Company, which wore being used iu testimony, and escaped with them. Warrants were issued as quickly as possible, and et?cers started in pursuit. It is supposed the books have becu taken outside of the State. Considera? ble excitement prevails. A News special from San At?alo says reliable information has been re? ceived at military headquarters that the Mexican government has ordered the troops at Monterey to the Kio Crande frontier, and that 0,000 reinforcements are en route for that border. Thirty thousand dollars has been appropriated to meet the expense of mobilizing this force. Gen. Nararyo is to be in com ?nd. i Il?* im i.m?i'i_i i Sews Hems. Tho Boston Standard, the organ o? the greenback party ol Massachusetts, has suspended it? publication for lack of support, after an existence of five months. Key.

A severe storm unroofed a ho blew down anew Presbyterian eh* and played havoc generally at Lebai I ml. The damage may reach $40J No loss of life is reported. Hon. A.

Hendricks, of Indiana credited [with having spoken v positively m regard to den Butler least. Being asked whether be he Butlerjat Indianapolis the other n!. he replied: "No: I don't want to h him. I have the utmos! disgust for I man." It is understood the Governor of A ginia is endeavoring to negotiate w the Richmond bankers a loan of $20 000, the money to be turned over to t public school fund, to which the SU treasury is largely indebted. Xeai every cent ef it, if obtained, will be i quired to pay up the arrearages duc t State for last year. Xo apportionmt of school funds has bciii made sin last December.

Butler's reasons for becomin; a candidate for Governor of Massachu ?settsare given in a letter from him dated June 2d, and addressed to one o I his supporters. In this letter he sayi [ be leoks upon Massachusetts as bcinj .at once the best and worst govcrnci Mate in the Union?"the best In regan to her laws, and the worst in the ad? ministration ol them"?and it is with the patriotic desire for giving his fellow citizens a better State administration, as the General puts it, that he is willing to forego that retiracy from publie affairs j to which his ad\ anting years and per? sonal inclinations would lead bim.

It is about time that this game should cease to be successful among reading tradesmen, for the swindle has bat n frequently veutilatcd through the news? papers. Reply o? Jud?re Harris to (?en. Echols't Card. Fellow Ci'ii'zck.?:?It bns been my misfortune or good fortune, as the may be, to have bad the unceasing hos? tility of certain politicians in this district since the inception of my political life, But It is my cheerful duty to congratu* lute the people of this district as well as myself, on the tact that this latter day canvass has been emdubtcd with more regard to the proprieties oi life, than any of its predecessors. Two years age a forlorn hone of "the disaausned" con? cluded that they had perfected all the arrangements and combined all th? ele? ments for my defeat. They held seen t caucuses vigorously. They tormed al? liances, offensive and defensive, of the most bewildering description, and con spired deeply and earnestly to mak common cause against me.and toobtai and embellish by their superior politic, wisdom, the seat in the National Con mas, with which for some time yo have seen tit to houer me. The peopl believing me to have done my duty have vindicated me emphatically in th face of this factious opposition, an their Industrious efforts have anly Big uaily miscarried. To illustrate Iwi feats ago, I received a letter fron Cbarlottesvillo, containing this express ion:-l have learnedjthat 'ieu. Ecbois ant Win. A. Burke ofStaunton. have beet here expressly to form a couibinalioi for your defeat." Strange to say, lliesi Vi ry same gentlemen, on last Saturday, mads another excursion to Charlottes, ville'where another little caucus was*h< It a- w ill be seen by the following tele? gram received by me on Saturday last CHABLOTTESVILLB, Sep. 28, '7-. ??I.en. Kchols and Urn. A- Burki conferred here to-day. They agieed Kchols la the man." This telegram proved co rrcct, forjsc boou as the General's loot touche? Staunton soil on Ins return Saturday evening, he said I am a candidate for i ongress, and that evening the motoi press flooded the city with his circulais, So that it was the politicians of Char lettesville that constituted "the vot?is from the various portions of the district' that solicited the (?enera! at this late day to run for Congress. if I am not mistaken in the temper of the public mind. Ibis little combination will share the fate of its predecei lor I intend to give people an opportu? nity of expressing their will regardless of all caucuses and cliques, whether in Harrisonburg, Staunlon, or Cbarlettes ville. But to the General's circular. I may flrst congratulate mvsslt ami the peoph that he docs not dare to altaek any vok I ever gave or any sentiment I have ut? tered during my term of seven years iu Congress, but is only apprehensive as to the tuttire. lie cannot lind any error I have committed, or any wrong perpe? trated on the people, This proves there is n? jusl cause for making a change. The General alludes to two questions the public debt and the currency, and while ho defines the position ?!' others with great force, he utterly laiis in eithi r to define his own: INo one de? limit Gen. Ech?la has talent o: a high order in his line, but h< constituted as to be unable or unwilling ?press his views clearly on these questions on which there is a different e of opinion in the public mind. To illustrate, In: again repeats tl,. si ng of compromise with the credi? tor.- thesoughe sang so sweetly when he was acaud?late for the Legislature, and then says this can be done within the pr?sent rate of taxation! This is . lyreadjuster proposes to do. The latter proposes by law to say Y is nol able to bear an incn a-" o; tax, and she Is willing to readjust the and pay all the ?.;e ?ntrate of tax will zeaccording to the Barbeur bill. to work upon the of the creditors and satisfy them they can get no more ami thus compel them by ?? to accept that -um in satisfaction of their claims, for he knows a- a class they will demand ?very t If Ihey can get it, and when they agree to take !c-. it is only In they cannot avoid it. And this ?s ??called" honorable and friendly negotia? tion. It i- to the creditor forcible readji ?'? ily driven to it b he cannot get the whole. But when arc these negotiations to end? They have been promised for thittcen years, and not a single oiler has been made by the creditors as a class, or by any considera? ra. The Gen. wholly fails to tell us. He can drift along on that non-committal and high BO form formany years to come. In the mean time, what is to become ol our state government, our charitable and educational institutions, our si ' our unpaid teachers-perhaps ho would enter into "friendly negotiation?" with them?while our debt is growing daily and the State committing the "disg ol misapplying tbe school fund, until now it has robbed that fund ol about eleven hundred thousand dollar.-. Bui we receive seme consolation Irom the General, wherein he says if we have to meet the debt it will ??not be as op? pressive as the advocates of forcible re adjuslmt ?it arc in the habit of represent in-." How can you do it without increasing the taxes for that purpose. Why smother it with vague generalities? why not state explicity what you propose to i\o. and when you propose to do it ? Why not come squarely down like those in favor of paying the last dollar and advocate an Increase of tax to what? ever amount may be necessary to pay the interest on the whole fifty lo seven ty-five per tent, or on the other hand joui with theBeadjusters who favor th< absolute control by the State of her revenues, the maintenance of her edu? cational and charitable institutions, in short the preservation of her very exis? tence a- a Commonwealth and thus give to the people peace and prosperity and to ?he Halls ol Legislation fret from this vexed question. thi; CURRENCY. In regard to the currency the Gener? al is equally as unsatisfactory as to his own position, while ho greatly misrep? resents mine. I have constantly said that I (did not think we had money i novgh to answer the wants of the try, but that great caution shsuld lie observed in its expansion lest we might go boyond the point of a sound and stable medium. That as contrac? tion had brought ruin on the country. I and am in favor of reversing the action 9\ the govi rnment and Increasing the currency until we reached the point ofa healthy circulation and as there was no mode of ascertaining just ?here inflation would begin, that experiment alone could detenu,ne the question. The General is again indefinite in the statemont that be lavai- as far as pa-si hie a return to the "principles Of finance which were understood and practiced by the Fathers eftbe Republic." Does bl mean he favors shin plasters, repud? iation or making contracts payable in tobacco, all of which were ''understood and practiced by the Fathers for what does he mean? Near Iva years ago in a sneeeh on this question in Congress I eloeedwilh the following summary : It lias boon my effort, Mr. Speaker. to shew that all legislation lor internal revenue looks to the protection of tin capitalist and the couse pi. n: destructteu of the prosperity of the producer?la iu the Interest of money which has x\<* iak value, and against labor which is thft so!?- foundation of wraith. it baa been my effort te anew that the national hanking system has cen? tralised the money of the country in the c tics, and that distribution ot its citen* lation has by unfair discrimination de- ' phled and impoverished the South an West and enriched and mad.: despoti the New England Btatei ami the grea commercial cenicre, and thai the on) remedy is to repeal all legislation tha looks to the protection of money; tha Ugal tender* be tubtiituted fin- national bank current;/ in amount . meet public dem ndi. and that all unfai discrimination against labor and th< products of the seil be abandoned. I am glad to know my views then ex pressed have ii come the policy of ; great party. What the General's opin ions are as between greenbacks direc from the Govern men I and Xatiomi Banks, do one knows. The true laso is. abolition of the National Banks an the substitution of Green amounts sufflcenl to n store the country and here I may as well be one of lb Bnil OU II i will stale this wil be before thencxl Congress. How wi the General vote on that P or can be Tot at all? for the 29th Bale of thed?sus reads, "ko member bjiall voti o: ANY QUESTION IN THE EVENT ? WHICH HEI8 IMMEDIATELY AND PAR TICX7LARLY INTERESTED." Now as th Ceneral is Presid? ni and Btockboldi i of Matronal bank,with a salcry, 1- ho.not ? Interested that he could no) vote on question to abolish 'nis ewn Bank an his prccuniary ofllce. Upon - I rule-audits propriety, the general wil have to withdraw from the Hauk or fron the Canvass. 1 think h 1- sufllcienl to show this al least, that t!:-(?enera! ?s mil m a posh tion to be an Impartial Legislator in a conti si between ihi the gn a monii d meno] i have wrought their ruin. That however honest, hi? judgment whould be warp i by thai in. fluence, for his own line tf though and acti ra have ! een all iu that direc tion. To further illustrate my views on tin question,1 give anothei extract fron that sarao speech.
