J THE TABLES TUWCED. f-.il At a time of profound peace, from causes with which the American people have no concern, a riot occurs ia the city of crime and sensation, and one hundred people are killed and three hundred are wounded. A woman is shot and killed by a ruffian because she expresses certain sentiments, and thea her child is shot down by the um ruf fian. Upon the streets of New York, an American freeman could noi express his sentiments except at the hazard of his life. This is a pretty stale of things. Fortunately for the South, these things occur in the North the great North, that keeps its heel upon the necks of the Southern people, and denounces them as monarchists, rebels and traitors. The government that hunts down an imag inary masked marauder, supposed to be in pursuit of an imaginary nigger sleep ing in an imaginary cabin, does not appear to care greatly for the row in New York. Let such a thing occur in the South, and in place of the Orangemen and Hibernians, be substituted the native whites and ne groes, and you may imagine the uproar that would be made at Washington. But ler would slobber like a mad dog; Sum ner's words would take fire like stricken matches; and Phillips would rave like an inspired madman. Dare to stop a negro procession and you dare the ven geance of Grant's army. It is only white people who are slaughtered in New York. That is all. Now, we of the South have the enemy. Can a quiet more profound than that which hovers over our section be imagined? Why, the still ness is painful. There is a dead level of order. The growing corn and cotton absorb the whole attention of the South ern people. They are fighting the grass with plows, rakes and hoes, not fighting one another with guns and pistols. They are looking to the autumn, when the grain will be ready for the barn and the cotton ready for the market. This '.i peace, this is order, and he who ruth lessly invades it, is a monster against whom every man's hand should be lifted. If committees, organized to manufacture disorder where there " is none, with to find the actual articlti tbey have only to listen to the breezes that blow from tha North. They are loaded with the voice of orime and the uproar of battle. If they wish to find the npot where blood flows, let'tbera look upon the streets of New York. The dead-house is full of corpses, and ,e hospitals overflow with wounded people. But there is not a black face among them. Not a negro has bee a killed or scratched. It is, therefore, no affair for the Government to investigate. A NoBTHtKH paper, the PitUburg Post, thus comments on the Ilarpeth bridge disaster: "We presume nothing will come of the recent wholesale rail road murder in Teunevsee. A trail sinks through a rotten railroad bridge and fifteen precious lives are lost. If men are to be incarcerated for years for appropriating a few dollars, what should be the punishmeut of the officers of a railroad company, who are immediately responsible for the death of those people and of the uutold miseries inflicted upon their families? In these cases we are in favor of capital punish ment. ' Tus Pittsburg Post says the friends of Major General Hancock are industriously circulating a pamphlet entitled " The Civil Record of Major General Winficld S. Hancock during his administration in Louisiana and Texas." This is done with a view of giving him position in the first rank of Presidential candidate, That he will be presented before the next Democratic National Convention, if he lives, is certain, and that be has many warm friends is clear, but there is sach a thing as crowding a man and destroy ing his chance, through the over zeal of his friends. The Food Journal has some consola tion for those who use tobacco, in that the cannibals will not eat persons whose system is impregnated with the oil of the Indian weed.. The Journal recounts the fate of a shipwrecked crew on one of tha Fejee Islands, all of whom were found palatable except one, who, being a con firmed smoker, was described by a prom inent native as tasting too much like to bacco to be eaten. The Lynchburg (Va.) Republican, a Democratic journal, anys: 'Tbe South ern people t large nb only recognize the political chances of the Jast few years, hut they 'accept the unconstitu tional legislation of the Radical party as the law of the land, hoping for better results hereafter at the ballot-box. They have made np their minds' to meet the issue, and yield a siiA ore- obedience to the laws. Can the Northern Democ racy, do morer Ihe Republican is slightly wrong. The Southern people have not accepted nnconstitutional laws. They do not resist but obey thera. They were forced upon them. The LouUville Ledger of yesterday . J 1 1 1 says: " A nywidir.ea lorm oi cuoiora, composed of equal parti W dysentery and yellow fever, it raging in New York, and is attributed by the physicians to the excessively hot weather, i In some quar ters of this city a virulont remittent ' fe ver, accompanied .with spinal and cere bral -derangements, has made its ep pearance. In some families there are ' ' ' r( ' ' -11 .1.J 1- lour or nve cases, an taaeu duuucui; with the same symptoms." , .Thr act of Governor Hoffman, pro viding for the protection of the Orangc- meu's procession1: has brought down on him the wrath of the Tribunej and of th wrath nf its backers. It is for . political effect the Tribune assails the Democratic! Governor. It pro nounces him very dead. Well, Hoff man dead is more to be envied than Greeiey and his political associates alive. A Ooverxmkxt official in Washington wrote to his friend in New York making inquiries respecting the position, finan cially and otherwise, of a resident of that city: He received the following reply: "I am happy to inform you that Mr. stands at the very top of respecta bility here. He owns a fast horse, a New York Judge, and intends to steal the first railroad he sees laying around loose. ' ; '.'i ; - This is telegraphed from Washington: " Ex-Governor Lonis E. Parsons, of Ala bama, has, it ia said, bee appointed ty Attorney-General Akerman, an Acting Assistant Attorney -General, to go South and prosecute the Ku-Klux cases. . He will probably be sent to his own State Alabama. Only a few 'years agd Par sons claimed to be a leader of the; Dem ocracy. ' I The World thns describes the editor of the New York Times: "A sour, for bidding, wooden face; a well-grown mus tache; and ears considerably too large to be in keeping with this profuse orna mental appendage of the upper lip. It may be said of the likeness, as of a cer tain class of anecdotes, that if Cot true it is well invented. . . A caih.Ii dispatch informs ns that there is a struggle among Americans in Paris to secure possession of the Com munist prisoners as colonists. Some want them for Colorado and others for Lower California and Arizona. ; The French Government is puzzled to decide. , The wife and son of the late C. L. Vallandigham have left Dayton, Ohio, and are now at Cumberland, Maryland, where it is believed that the bereaved lady will shortly recover from the ter rible Hhock entailed by her husband's tragic death. j Philadelphia now owes fifty-one rail lion dollars, tveenty millions of which have been heaped up since the Radical party took charge of affairs, ten years ago. It is stated that a late editorial ol Alexander H. Stephens is five sod one half columns long. Tka Blair, To the Editor ef tb. Ledger : Shall these be graded this year? Shall the wise and eminently politic action of the General Council be carried out? If not, where rests the responsibility of failure in the interposition of a bar to the commercial interests, and the arrest of the upward and onward progress of our city? These are questions now stir ring the public mind to its depths. The merits of the projected improvement is assumed in the well considered action of the Council, supported as it is by a recommendation signed by a large proportion of our most intelligent, solid, prudence-governed citizens, urging the layor to take prompt action ia reference to the question. This paper sets forth the fact of its adoption by the General Council by a vote mora nearly approaching unanimity than any one of similar magnitude that has ever ben presented to the municipal Board, and only awaits the approval of the Mayor to become a law. While disa vowing a spirit or purpose of dictation, yet the subscribers earnestly nrge upon the executive the reasonable request of prompt action in the premisen. Ap prove, if his sense of oilicial "duty so dii tates, the resolution; if not, return it, with his objections, to the Council, to the end that they make such disposition of the same as their judgment approves, and not by the assertion of a power, with which the charter has invested him. delay his approval or the inter vention of his veto Bntil the next regu lar meeting of that body, thereby, in the consumption of time, retarding the work during the most seasonable time, and, most probably, carrying it over to another year. Here, truly, time is ot the essence of the measure. Again the proposition commends itself specially in its mode and meant of accomplish ment. But a small part of the cost (one-fourth) is to be paid in cash; the balance dischargabl , in the indebtedness of delinquent tax payers. Certainly, this is a most judicious mode of building up an important, if not an imperative, improvement out of a small proportion of a suspended debt. whicn tbe city may not realize for Tears. ! To these considerations may be added that the work will lurnUh employment for a thousand men in our city who now desire and cannot obtain the same. Here they would receive remunerative wages without being drawn away from their homes and families the public and nri vate interest lining together. Let, then, the Mayor act Grade the bluffs. Then are your commercial necessities accom modated; the city present a foreground of wharfage rivaling those of others quadrupling it in population, and far ad vanced shall have been planted the standards of aa acknowledged aad abounding prosperity.

The crowning result is the triumph of liberty and law, and all things consid ered, so great a victory has seldom been so cheaply purchased." The Tribune says: "It ought not to cost any more precious blood to establish the fact that this is a land of civil and religious liberty, and yet if it should cost the lives of thousands, the fearful price must be paid. We cannot tamely sur render the fruits of a century of heroism and sacrifice." - '. WASHLSGTOX. The latrraal Reveaa Maadla Bet lea nana - Treaty. Washington', July 14. There is Ihe best authority for the report that the internal revenue muddle was settled yesterday, while Secretiry Boutwell was at Long Branch, by the appointment of W. Douglass Deputy Commissioner, place of Pleasanton. The appoint ment will be made public in a day or two.'. " , , , General Pleasanton put an end yes terday to all conjectures aa to bis course in a conversation in regard to the reports current here. He said be did not intend to resign, because he be lieved that he was in the right. He says he does not want a foreign mission, will : not have one, and he would do nothing to relieve Mr. Boutwell of any sensitiveness he may feel. If the Pres- dent wants him to leave the Internal Revenue Bureau his successor must be named, for he will take no intima';ons. It baa been deemed by toe f ostmaster General to advertise again for proposals for carrying mails in all the Southern States. exceDtine Tennessee and Ken tucky, for the fiscal year just begun. J his action is rendered necessary oy the refusal of those to whom contracts bad been awarded, ; basing their re fusal on the assertion that they bad fixed the amount of compensation at too low a figure. There was received at the Post Office Department the Postal Treaty concerr ing international execution of postal money orders between Great Britian and the United States, just concluded in London by Dr. Chas. F. McDonald, who was sent to England for the purpose of negotiating this convention in the ca pacity of agent of the United States. The Treaty only awaits the signature of the President of the United States, the British authorities having already given their signatures. I nder its propositions, money orders of fifty dollars or less, American cur rency, or ten pounds sterling or less, may be obtained on England, Ireland and Scotland in the postottices of the United States ' in any portion of the United States. The treaty goes into effect or. the first day of October next, and will prove a vast convenience to both American citizens and British sub ject. ' Tha stac-Flckar'a kUr. The controversy between a colored woman and Mr. Kogeraon witn reier eace to, the proprietorship of a little colored girl was mentioned in yester day's Leixikr, and heard this forenoon before Esquire Miller, who possesses pe culiar abilities for unraveling Gordian knot. The case created great excite ment in the colored world, and its d -tails , were listened to by at least one hundred black spectators. The woman, a rag picker by profession, insisted that the little girl was her only child, who had strayed away from her some months since, he girl, she insisted, was born just after the war closed. The girl de nied the maternity and also the time of her birth, both of which denials Justice Miller credited, and especially the latter, as it was evident that the girl was about fourteen years of age, and the chrono logical title of the rag picker was not to be relied upon. After hearing the girl's testimony of herself and parents, the court listened to the declamation of two distingu'uhed youug members of the bar about two hours, and decided the case against the rag-picker, whom the Court strongly intimated did not know her own offspring. The girl returned to the employ ment of Mr. Rogersoo, apparently happy at bating escaped tha fate of a rag picker's only child. i . Matikee to-morrow forenoon by Miss Patterson.
