WrITAT JUDGE DENT TELLS ON THE RADICAL PARTY, IN STUMPIING MISSISSIPPI TO BE GOVERNOR. You are well aware that it is the aim of General Ames and oth ers to perpetuate their rule over the State of 'Mississippi by a reg ular system of proscription, if by any means they could procure your assistance in doing so. I have told you that you are not indebted to them for anything, and, therefore, you should not ask yourself the question to "whom shall we attach ourselves at the present time, and who will in re ality prove themselves our friends in the present crisis?" Do you not know that the sole object of General Ames, and the party to which we are opposed, is simply to subserve their own interests and to continue their power in the State ? The solution of this po litical problem, therefore, depends on the manner in which you shall vote in the coming election. The future of this State I may almost say depends on your action, and what you may consider of even greater importance the perma nency of your own race will de pend greatly on the manner in which you act, as you may be driven to the frontier like the red man, and disappear as he is doing. If they could retain office and continue to plunder the country, they would soon prove false to you, and you would soon find out the truth or the axiom that "blood is thicker than water." They have no sympathy with you, while those with whom you have been raised do love you not for your votes alone, but because they have true sympathy with you. And I tell you that General Grant is in favor of the honest party. I heard the President declare, in my own presence, and in the presence of a nunmber of distin guished gentlemen belonging to the Republican party, in Wash ington, about three weeks ago, that it was never in tcn(led to give you the right to vote until it be came a necessity in the plan of reconstruction of the Southern States, You are not, therefore, indebted to them for the boon of sutffrage, as you only received the right to vote when it became a political necessity. I-uch, there fore, depends upon you at the. present time, and, as I have said, it is highly important to your selves as a people to what party you will attach yourselves in the present camplaign. Yet, here in this State of Mis sissippi, in the time of peace and quietness, we have a little popin jay, [laughter,] not in a kingdom, but in a free Republic, in time of peace, with impudence that is really sublime, on his own mere motion suspends the glorious writ of right, and deprives citizens of their personal liberty without cause. His impudence is only equalled by his ignrorance, as he struts about like a little chicken cock dressed in uniform. [Roars of laughter.] This popinjay is about thirty years of age, and knows no more about law than the cseatures by whom he is sur rounded, and yet he suspends the imost sacred writ of right while the Gevernment looks on alnd ays' nothing. The curious question, whether sweet potatoes are- to be consid cred as grain or friuit, has been fIor a long time before the lntcrnal R:evenue Bureau, and was only deci(led the other da~y. It grew out of the fact that considerabhl quantities of whiskey are distilled frionl sweet plotatoes il Virginia and elsewhere. Undlcer t provis ion of the law, stills distilliiing from fruit are exemnl)t, or subjec(t to a lower tax than manutfeCtories lmaking whiskey from grain. The Commissioner carefully consider ed the subject, and decided at last that, within the meaning of Congrcss, sweet potatoes must he regarded as a grain. The Republicans had a major ity of 28,89!)S votes in Pennsylva nia last November. In Ohio at the same election their majority was 41,428. There is a heavy gaiu this year over-the left ! (Fro'o the N. O. Bulletin. The Bremen Line of Steamers. The pioneer of the new line of steamers to run between Bremen and New Orleans, touching at Havre, the steamship Frankfort, lying at the head of Jackson street, was thronged all day yes-. terday, far up as her moorings are, at the head of Jackson street, in the Fourth District. The peo ple visiting the vessel were chiefly Germans, and they might well be proud of this commercial enter prise, uniting, as it does, their Fatherland with the land of their adoption on this Southern soil, without any intermeddling to prejudice new comers against the soil, the climate or the inhabi tants of the South. The Frank fort brought some three hundred and fifty passengers, the greater number of whom started for New Braunfels, in Texas, to settle there, and some fifty remain here, the rest going up the Mississippi, destined for the West. The Frankfort is the finest mer chant steamer that has ever been seen at the wharves of New Or leans. She is an iron ship, of twenty-six hundred tons burthen, and can carry four thousand bales of cotton. She is the pioneer of the Bremen ~2rth German Lloyd Line, in which five steamers are to run, and all as capacious, as swift and as well equipped as the Frankfort. Her cabin aoeommo datiors are limited to berths for forty or fifty passengers. The owners- of the line have seized the right idea, which is to have vessels of great capacity for freight and for steerage passen gers. She can, without discom fort or endangering health, bring nine hundred steerage passengers. There is nothing wanting in her appointments to secure her most precious freight, that of human life. She has eight large life boats; she has a surgeon, and the ventilation of the deck for steer age passengers is not to be sur passed. A man six feet high can not, standing on the floor of the steerage deck, touch the deck above him, and beside the "wind sails," through which the breeze is caught above and taken below, the side of the vessel is most abundantly perforated with win dows. It is impossible to over-estimate the benefits of such enterprises as these to the people of the South. It has been the interest of ship-owners trading with North ern ports, fromn the migratory countries of Europe, to misrepre sent everything in the South, and exaggerate the advantages of the West. Now the South will conime in direct communication . with these people in Europe; we will understand each other, and the owners of this and other lines of direct communication will be friendly negotiators. The hog crop of the West is re ported to be about the same in quantity as tha:t of last year, with prices ruling at 7c gross and 10c net per pound. TlE COTTON QUESTION AnBROAD. -The London Times of the 27th ult., in an article on the cotton question, says: "if cotton is dear with its increased production be cause of now spinning countries bidding against us, then the Liv erpool quotations are unintelligi ble. If spinners only carry off the ratw ma:terial but curtail their demand for our manufactures, the state oftrade is unintelligible. Also, on these sulppositiol)5, it is useless to try for-more and cheap or cotton-the evil, arising only fromn thl loss ot the monopoly. iThe cotton demand is limited and competitors diminish our share of the manuftacture. We cannot discern tlhat cotton at sixl)encle -_..)er pound would bring trade back to England. We lost it by the loss of the raw material. lBut since thent so manuy events occur ed(1 affecting this .great industry that it is necessary to distribute or apportion these several results in the state of things before us." A large number of colored car pet-baggers from Chicago recentlyv lanlded on the T eche, having been ,uphy-r ed to mak._ s·uar.n Radical Rule in Tennessee, The following article from the Memphis Appeal possesses a spe cial interest for Louisiana, where Radical rule still prevails: It is startling to look back on Radical rule for four years in Ten Inessee, and see what a gulf of destruction we have escaped by obtaining at last a Legislature of good; prudent and true men. The public debt has been run to forty millions, and if the Radical power had continued four years more, the debt would have reached eighty. Capital would have been driven out of the State, and would. not be abundant enough to pay. a laboring man a sheep's head and pluck a day for his labor. All improvements would stop, and an exodus of laborers and mechanics would have been the consequence. Laborers cannot live where capi tal cannot live. Where men with money can make nothing with their money they will seek some other part of the world in which they can. And there the capi talists will go to work with their money to build it up, and the me chanics and laborers will follow where they can get employment. Thus our Radical Goverment of high taxes, by driving capital away, has been destroying the country, while individual effort was being made to build it up. Let the two (Government and pri vate enterprise) now combine, low taxes and resolute effort, and we shall have the greatest State on this continent. Its cities-and cit izens will be rich as well as its soil. Laborers and mechanics, farmers and merchants, will be abundant, because abundantly paid. And then our men will have fine houses and the ladies fine carriages, mechanics and la borers will have plenty of clothes, food and wages, and every poor man's baby its own stick of candy. Butler sternly refuses to com promise with Wilson concerning the Massachusetts Scnatorship. We see by the telegraphic dis patches that Capt. Charles V. Read was on board of the Cuban privateer Hornet, as navigating officer. It will be remembered that Capt. Read distinguished himself in the Confederate navy during the war, as commander of the privateer Taconiy, off the coast of New England. He was a lieu tenant on the Florida when that steamer escaped from the port of Mobile. He wa$ in command of the WVebb when she steamed out of Red river and ran by New Or leans, in the early part of 1865. Capt. Read is a Mississippian, and graduated at Annapolis Na val Academy in 1860. The Citizen, published at Paris, Kentucky, the largest horse acid imule market in the state, quotes two year old mules at $120 to 160. broke mules at $150 to 212. One lot of 28 mules brought $147 10, sucklings $15 to 63. Another lot of 21 head, two year old, sold at $180, yearlings as high as '$95, broke mules from $300 to 475 per pair. SAVAi AHl, Oct. 11.-The D)em oeratic vote for Mayor and alder men is overwelming. Out of 4, 400 registered voters the Demo crats will poll 4000, the negroes generally voting with them. Eveything quiet. Col. John Scri veni, the Democratic candidate, andt the entire Democratic board, is elected by about 3000 majority. The oficial vote will not be known until to-morrow. The Boston Post says: "Ben '.tade's extensive traveling is sup posed to be in search of those. who 'mniourn his loss in the Na tionnal Councils.' " State warrants are unsettled.

Edwin M Stanton. (From the New York Demosrat.) God is just in his punishment. It is only a few months ago that Edwin M. Stanton was one of the most.noticeable men in all this land. He was Secretary of War, and had been for some years. And now. We hear of him in Vermont, broken-down, helpless, miserable; respected by none, thought of by few, and cared for by only his own family. When he was in the War-ofice he won a well-deserved reputa tion as a cowardly knave, as a ghoul, whose ambition made sub servient every right and privilege, and in many instances the lives of his fellow-men. Edwin M. Stanton was one of the murderers of Mary E. Surratt. Edwin M. Stanton was the mur derer of thousands of Federal soldiers who wereqkept in South ern prisons, because he refused to let them be exchmanged, al though the Confederate autiori ties were constantly making ef forts to get them brought Netl-. Ulysses S. Grant was an so complice in this murder. Since Stanton became an apos tate his whole public career "has been one of blood, of outrage, and of murder, and while the demoralization of the times had only laudation and laurels for the ghoul, a just Providence is bilng ing revenge for the sufferers, and a terrible retribution for the infa mous outlaw who so long rioted and feasted upon the misfries, of his unfort~inate victims. A coward in power is most brutal and hellish of all, but the power of the coward is now gumse. . As he writhes in., the agoies of the sufferings he is now under going, as he toters around in his helpless and worthless condition, it will be a good time for him to recur to the misery and desolation he has wrought. to the scenes of blood and murder he has instiga ted, and then read the terrible retribution that comes for such as he. Whon the history of this coun try is written, Edwin M. Stanton will occupy its blackest page, and upon it will be heaped the bitter est curses of all who live after him. The hottest and most damning fires of hell will not suffice to burn out the stains of blood that mark him for time and his record for eternity, and when he comes upon that last day for the final judgment murderer will be mild, for the sentence can only then be given for such i life as his. The railroad track is completed over 10 miles west of Marshall, leaving only 4 miles to Hallville. The iron and cross-ties are ready to put down, and the delay arises from the failure of the contract ors to complete the treatle-work. The cars will reach Hallville by the first of November, perhaps sooner.-ShIrevelort Gazette. The St. Louis Democrat of the 13th says: The river at this point contin ties almost stationary, with abun dant depth of channel in every direction. The upper part of the Mississippi is falling rapidly from the extraordinary height it had attained. There is a great decline in the cotton production of Brazil. We o-bserve in the Brazilian Times that the exports from 1st January to 1st September, 1809, were sixty thousand bales less than during the same period of the previous year. The Convention at Louisvillo shirked the Chinese labor ques tion. It dleclared in favor of eve ry encouragemient or European immigration, but considered Ori ental labor as a local question, with which it ought to have no thing to do. A party of WVestern capitalists "talk" of erecting a mammoth hotel in New Orleans, They had an idea of buying the St Charles, but like a great mlany would-bu guests of that IhouIse, were demo' lizled byl the prol'rictor'a ch.~~"g.
