cality resonant with thoir gufTawa and half
civilized yah-yahs, but have two or threo
pitched battles daily. This, too, in one of
the thickest populated portions of our city,
yet the presence of a Metropolitan Police
man is rarely seen in tlat neighborhood.
Why, within tho last few days fivo several
fights have occurred among them, but no
arrests have been made by the police. Such
things do not speak well for the efficiency
of our police system, and unless matters
are remedied we shall be forced to the
opinion that some one in some locality is
neglectful of his proper duty. If a sentry
cannot be stationed in the vicinity, for
heaven's sake, oh, police, tike a stroll down

"Stcntlng or tho Green Corn."
Nashville, at this particular time, is in
fested by a numberless band of lazy, loung
ing, negro thieves, who hang around groge"
ries during the day, attend meetings of tho
"Lqil" League, Radical political gather
ings, and cheer lustily for Grant, Colfax &
Co., and "oft in the stilly night,'' when
slumber's chains have bound all honest
personp, these midnight scoundrels sally
forth from the alleys and decs of the city
and forage upon our good citizens, who live
near town, unmercifully. An instance of
this kind was up beforo Justice Mathews
yesterday. Isham Anderson, a negro.thief,
entered iho corn fields of our friend M. S.
Combs, Esq., whose farm adjoins Edgefield
on the north, and was in tho act of leaving
with a "turn o' rosin' ears," when he was
detected by Mr. Combs, who caused his
arrest and appearance before Enquire
Mathewa. Anderson plead guilty,, and
under the small offense law was fined $10
and costs, and in default of tho fino was
sent to jail. This small offense, we take it,
is not a small offense by any means. There
are too many instances of the kind of -daily
occurrence, and we sincerely hope that the
authorities in disposing of this and similar
cases may prosecute them to the. very
fullest extent of the law.

The following information furnished' bv
iTBoyd, steamboat' agente. a eenlfeman
who enjoys confidence and respect wherever
ne is Known, may be taken by onr readers
a3 a truthful representation of affairs, in
Wayne county. Capt. .Boyd arrived in the
city from Wayne connly on' 'Monday, but
oemg compellled to go lo his home on the
Edgefield side of the river, he stopped, but
a lew momenta in the city. He statea that
while at Clifton, a village in Wayne county,
situated on'hfeTenriessee river, on Salur
jlay last, thai "three gentlemen from
Waynesboro arrived in the village and re
ported.substantially, that the negroes, somo
two or three hundred in number, were drill
ing with arms at the; Furnace aa previously
stated by us. That a party of twelve or
fifteen masked horsemen rode to the Fur
nace and remonstrated against the military
maneuvers, and suggested to the negroes
that they turnover their arms to the pro
prietor of the works that they might be
in turn, transferred to tho State authorities,
remarking at the time that if armed per
sona were allowed to march and counter
march through the country that the direst
calamities bight result from it. The ne
groes being approached in this mild and
pacific manner readily assented, saying as
they did so that they had been advised by
whitemen to commence drilling, that the
militfa Tverelo be called out, and of coniye
every man must be at his post. After this
result the horsemen rode back to Waynes
boro peacably and quiet.
Arrived in the town they were met by a
wurderonsVolley of musketry from a stock
ade near by tho Waynesboro ja.il, fired by
the, Sheriff and his possee, who during tho
absence of the horsemen, at the furnace,
had collected his crowd. Tho result of the
volley .was tho wounding of one man seri
ously in the shoulder, two others slightly.
and the killing, outright of four horses.
TheTiorsemen relorned the fire, but it is
thought without effect, as their assailants
;were Bhielded by the stockade. They then
turned and rode on, and Boon after dia.
peraed for their home8.
These we believe to be the true facta.
That tho drilling of the armed negroes,
apparently unauthorized at this fevered
$tate of tho public mind, was disorderly,
lawless and provocative ot great evil, all
will admit, that the appearance of these.
horsemen en masque was wrong, wo readily
admit, but the action of the Sheriff and
hia posse we must condemn in the strongest
terms. No man, simply because he hap
pens a be an officer and in favor with the
powers that be, should be allowed to pros
titute his power to any such, and if the au
thorities would but investigate the affair
and sift it & its bottom, this officer should
be summarily punished. That the whole
affair is deprecated by all the good citizens
of Wayne county is evident from the fact
that on baturday last a large peace meet
ing was held at Waynesboro, at which time
speeches were made and resolutions offered
denunciatory of the unfortnnate occurrence.
In' obedience 'to numerous! urgent and com
plimentary solicitations, I announce myself as
a candidate for the offico of Mayor. Tho elec
tion will fake place tho last Saturday in Sep
tember, 1G3. ,
The office is one of honor and profit,' yet of
weighty responsibility, and of vital importance
to the welfaro of our city; especially is it of
great interest to tho tax -payer and poor of the
city therefore, it ii with reluctance that I an
nounce myself as a candidate.
Beforo voting fur or against me, I dojire to be
fully understood as to my viows, etc, in refer
eaco to the government of tho city, for tho best
and wisest policy to be punned for alt concerned.
To this end I propose to address you upon tho
questions bonncctod with the city government
at least oacoin each ward, botwoon this and tho
election. First, I will address those who will
hoar mo on the Public Square at the uppor end
of the Markethouso, Thursday, August 20th,
1863, about 8 o'clock r. v.; on Broad Street,
at the cornor of Market, about S o'clock p. u.,

discount. Demands from tho interior up
on the city banks have already been inaue
for funds to be employed in. moving the
crops, and it is probable that money will
soon command- higher interest. The gold,
market has been firm, b'ut withont special

declined to 145 J, and has ranged between
that figure and 14S during the week.; Pe'r

advance and depress the premium, wniclf
attempts havo caused two failures, one of a
well established house, which, it ia proper
to add, was also involved in stock specula
tio.-.s. Government bonds, after reaching
high figures, have experienced a sharp de
cline. Neither investment demand nor
sales by investors have been large The
advance appears to have been engineered
for the purpose of unloading."
