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. JC. Y. Z.

comment br the press, me nera.u
this morning says: "The city of New
York, in the maintenance of the consti
tutional right of the people and of liberty
and law, stands vindicated before the
countrr and worm. . ine goveruweui,
and city authorities proved themselves
at all noint equal to the emergency.
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." - '.

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. '

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.

tv,. ...inn this Indulrcnoe is asked of the
public we briefly state: Our enterprise is one
of magnitude, requiring the establishment of
Agencies throughout the United ritates. We
have now secured them from Sew tor u tne
Pacific Slope, but in doing so more time has
been oonBuuied than we anticipated. We are
in working order everywhere desired, and
place the day of Drawing only two months oi
for the puriiose of giving all our agents, far
and near, full scope for their best labors. We
started out to render the people a Distribution
nf valuable Heal Estate that should be satis
factory to them in the details of its drawing,
...i ;nt.nH n maintain that nnlnt regard-
less of all else. If there is to be any grumb
ling, we prefer that it shall occur in regard to
.i;ht rialav we ask. than to have it take
plane alter the drawing is over. On the 31st
of August our enterprise will be perfected.
We do not, nor will not. require another
