It is generally conceddl by the Radicals themselves that the period intervening between this and the election in Pennsylvania, will have to be employed with next to superhuman diligence and zeal, in order to assure a. proba bility of General Geary's success. It is still further conceded, that while the Democrats of that State have been laboring persistently and exhibiting on the part of their leaders and those who as pire to be such, a most remarka ble degree of disinterestedness and self-sacrifice, the Radical fac tions have strangely neglected the combination of their inharmo nious interests, and until quite recently put forth no special ef fort for union, peace and concert of action. It is now evidently too late to heal the "existing dissensions" of which John Covode has spoken so feelingly if not with ortho graphical correctness, unless the Federal administration possess the magic power to administer some speedy remedy; and doubt less the peregrinations of the President through the State have a direct political bearing and are instigated by grave apprehen sions of disaster. The Nation newspaper, in com .menting upon this matter, looks upon the new Democratic nonli nations in Philadelphia as "de cide(lly dangerous to Republican ascendancy in the city," and is of the decided opinion that as the city goes, so will doubtless the State. The blundering indiffer ence of the administration to the divisions among the Pennsylva nia Radicals has only served to widen the breach between DIr. Brewster and Mr. Covode and aid materially in pro(lucing the pres ent demoralized condition of the party, which it is feared has be come chronic and incurable through the stubborn procrasti nation of its mangling managers. In the meantime, their candi date for Governor receives no moral support from either faction, and rallies no popnlar enthusiasm to his standard. His past identi fication with State affiirs has not redounded to his credit, and his official career is undergoing a ruthless exposure by the opposi tion. DMen have become more in clined to consider "facts and figures" than they have before for the past six or eight years. The plentitudle of greenbacks is con tracting, the rigorous necessities of life are more pressing, the tur moil and confusion of the late wonderful era in our national an nals is giving place to clearer skies and the vision of men is less obscu.red. The time is at hand, in a word, when every man. who has in any way taken advantage of his coun try's need or the people's uncon cern, for purposes of mere self a-gran(lizelment, must forfeit the public esteem and confidence. The record of Radicalism and its unworthy leaders is not written in the sand, but will, sooner or later, carved in the enduring re nlembranice of an injured people, come up in judgment against them. The prospect promises that the appointed hour for Pennsylvania has come. Apathy, i:action, inmun tual crinlinations, (lisaltection to wards the administration, and(l distrust of their candidate, pre vail among the IRepublicans of that State, while upon the other hand the gallant Democracy were never more disposed to harmony, ne\ver more resolute or holpf'ul, never more enthusiastic in behalf of a standard-bearer whose very name isa synonyllm of strength and Ihonesty and statesmanlike ability. Hon. O H. Browning, Secreta ry of the Interior during Presi dlent Lincolu's Administration, has abandoned the Radical party, and accepted the nomination of the Democrats of Illinois, as del egate to the State Constitutional Convention. HIe announces him selfas "decidedly, heartily and I difiantly" opposed to striking the word "white" from the Constitu tion of Illinois. The National Capital. CALL FOR A NATIONAL CONVEN TION AT ST. LOUIS. In consideration of the growing agitation by the people of the Valley States of the subject of the removal of the national capital from Washington city to the Mis sissippi valley, 'the undersigned, believing that it ought to be re moved, deem it of the-highest im portance to a full and free discus sion of the subject by the people of all the States, to call a national convention for that purpose, and in making the call, hereby set forth: 1. That the present location of the capital is objectionable to the great mass of the people of the country. Its geographical posi sition is in the highest .degree both objectionable and adverse to the public interests, and never can be made reconcilable to the vastness of our territory. 2. That there is every conside ration, both of our nationality and our civilization, to demand' its removal to the central plain of the continent. Whoever will con sider the topography of our coun try and the growth of our civila zation, must know that the preponderance of national power and national wealth. if not already possessed by the Valley States, will soon be organized and con centrated within the limits of those States adjoining the Missis sippi river and her tributaries and lying between the gulf and the lakes. Here will be concentrated the great railroad power of the nation; here the agricultural wealth; here will be assembled, in a few years, three-fourths of the people of the country, all con trolled by intelligence and indus try. Furthermore, we claim that the force of civilazation is of vast concern in maintaining good gov ernment, influencing national leg islation, and giving strength to a nation; and, tlheiefore, of right the seat of national legislation ought to be fixed in the center of our national civilization, its wealth, its power and its popula tion. To obtain a wise diccussion of the facts bearing upon this great sublject, and to secure the end for which we labor by a just conviction of our countrymen to this cause, we make this call for a national con.vention, to convene at St. Louis on the 20th day of October next, said convention to be composed of delegates from all the States and Territories, as fol lows: Each State to be represent ed by two delegates from each of its Congressional districts, and four delegates for each State at large. The delegates to be ap pointed respectively by the Gov ernors of the States. The Terri tories will be entitled to twot delegates, appointed by their Governors; also, the District of Columbia will be entitled to two delegates, to be appointed by the mayor of Washington city. Sign ed by the committee. The proposed survey of the Baxter and Bayou Macon canal, in Carroll parish, has been comn pleted by Gen. Jeff.

Advices from Knoxville say that Senator Brownlow is confin el to his bed by sickness, and fears are entertained he will not be able to take his seat in the Senate at the opening of Congress.

JACKSON, MIIss., Sept. 29.-The Radical Convention met to-day, There was a large attendence; all but two counties in the State be ing represented. J. S. Morris, of Warren, permanent President; F. HI. Little, permanent Secretary. Gen. Alcorn was nominated for Governor by acclamation; R. O. Powers for Lieut. Governor, and James Lynch, colored, for Secre tary of State; H. Musgrove, for Auditor; W. H. Vasser, for Treas urer; J. S. Morris, Attorney Gen eral; H. R. Pease, Superintendent of Public Instruction. The following is a summary of the resolutions that were adopted: 1. The Union first, last and for ever. 2. The freedom of speech and of the press. 3. Universal suffrage and uni versal amnesty. 4. Free schools presenting the benefits of education to every child in the State. 5. Opposition to that unequal and unjust system of taxation that discriminates against labor and bears unjustly upon the industrial classes. 6. A revision of the condition of free labor, with a view espe cially to the adoption of a more summary process for the recovery ot debts. 7. Adherence to the 13th and 14th amendments of the Consti tution ot the United States. 8. The exercise of the whole political influence of the State with Congress for the immediate removal, as provided, of all disa bilities imposed by the 14th amendment. 9. The ratification of the 15th amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 10. The new Constitution of Mississippi, with the disfranchis ing and proscriptive clauses left out. Tennessee and the Fifteenth Ammend ment, We rejoice in the information, which we hope is true, that the Tennessee Legislature, which is to meet next Monday, will refuse to ratify the Fifteenth Amend ment. We do not doubt that Congress will find or make a pre text for officially declaring the amendment to luve been ratified by the requisite number of States and to be a part of the Constitn tion, but_ such a declaration, if unsustained by fact and law, will not, we trust, be allowed to stand for a single lay after the friends of the Constitution shall have the constitutional power to annul it. The amendment has not been ratified by Indiana, al though the unprincipled Radical leaders of that State assert that it has been; and, if it shall be nominally ratified by Virginia, Mississippi and Texas, the thing will be (lone under the influence of duress and for that reason will be to all intents void. Let the D)emocracy, wherever they have the power, as they certainly have in Tennessee, see to it that "the amendment is not legally or le gitimately ratified, and we may confidently trust that the wrongs perpetrated by the party now unfortunately dominant will in time be corrected. As surely as tilhe republic shall live, that good time will come.-Courior-Journal. The New York World charges (4ov. Geary, Radical candidate tir re-election in Pennaylvania, w•ith cowardice. It declares upon the authority of a Major Oonenal in the late war, who was an aid to Gen. Quitman at the battle of Contrceas in 1847, that Coy. Geary, commanding a regiment at the time of that battle, quietly slip pad away from his command in order to keep out of the fight, and that afterward, when the fact was charged against him by Pensyl vania paper, he applied to this aid, a Second Lieutenant fresh from West Point, for a certificate of courage with which to meet the newspaper attack. The World assures Gov. Geary that the name of the officer who states these facts can be had on application at that office. Rates of Adveub . - oem ,mi o. eigh sto.. o.w or lees.

FESSENDEN's ORIGIN.-In man ners (and manners are tell-tales of men) he always appeared to be an aristocrat--a character un seemly in our eyes. Even to his friend (except to the most inti mate,) during the first few mo ments of every renewed interview, he exhibited something forbidden in his demeanor. His counte nance, even in its lightest mood, never wholly lost its severity. His merriest laugh did not alto gether unwrinkle those lines of his face which showed him to be a good hater. His graven image on our decimal currency is flabbi ly devoid of all his Roman digni ty. Self-respect sat upon him like "a supreme virtue. It is a mistake to suppose (as some have asserted) that he suffered a per petual pang at the remembrance of his illegitimate birth. No civil tie can constitute, nor the absence of it nullify, the natural and un shamed allegiance which a manly son must ever bear to his mother, Not til man's estate did Mr. Fes senden come to the knowledge of his shadowed origin; but when he suddenly discovered that there was living in New England a lady of whose existence he had been. utterly ignorant, but who had brought him into the world, he made baste to see her face, to fall upon her neck, and to mingle his tears of joy and sorrow with her own. Nothing in all his career was nobler than the filial affection and respect which he neverceased. to render to this superior woman during her remaining years on earth. A MODEL JURY OHARGE.-'If the jury believe from the evi dence that the plaintiff and de fendant were partners in the grocery, and that the plaintiff bought out the defendant, and that the defendant paid the note by delivering to the plaintiff a cow, which he warranted not breachy; and the warrant. was broken by reason of breachness of the cow, and he drove the cow back and tendered her to the de fendant, but he refused to receive her, and the defendant took her home again and put a heavy yoke on her to prevent her from jump ing fences, and by reason of her yoke she broke her neck and died; and if the jury believe that the defendant's interest in the gro cery was worth anything, the plaintiff's note was worthless and the cow good for nothing, either for beef or milk, then the jury must find out for themselves how they will decide the case; for the Court-if she understands herself, and she thinks she does-don't know how such a d-d case should be decided," C]' Here is the proposed fif teenth amendment: SEC. 1: ART. 15.-The right of the citizens of the Uuited States to vote, shall not be denied by the United States, nor any State, on account of race, color, or pre vious condition of servitude. SIc. 2: The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. An old darkey of the Radical persuasion met a Conservative neighbor the other day, near Waynesboro, Tenn., and being asked by his neighbor what was the latest news, he exclaimed, "Oh, good news, sah! good news! Mr. SCntcr's gwine to call de Loy al Legislator togedder to talke ac tion on de fifteenth commandmenlt.' The National Intelligencer ap pears again in a new series, thor onhgly Democratic in tone. It is very unlike the old paper, being in fact, an enlarged copy of the defunct Express. It is published on the co-operative plan by print- ers, pressmen, editors and report ters. The Hartsville Vidette says to the Nashville Press and Times i "If the late election kicked you over, just lie still, .for the thing isn't done shooting yet." And it lies very still, It's dead, Fx-Senator A. O. P, Nhicholson is suggested for tte Tennesseec Spu9torship.
