organ of the States-rights Democracy
of Virginia. Nor was it a whit more
wonderful that, before many months
elapsed, the politicians who hastened to get
rid of the suspected anti-slavery Francis P.
Blair, sighed for the restoration of his
iron rule and sturdy diet, in place of the
diluted obstructions and amusing common
places of his eccentric and incapable suc
cessor. The school of which Thomas
Ritchie was the very best type, though fast
dying out, is not extinct. Its disciples may
be easily detected. They live in a sort of
atmosphere of their own. Reared in the
belief that slavery was a divine institution,
their delectation was to revel in the teach
ings of the States-rights philosophers. They
made war something like the Moslems,
who throw human lives away with a
kind of cheerful fanaticism, and he
lieved that that is a shorter road and a
sweeter sacrifice to the blissful meeting
with Mahomet. They have, therefore,
come out of the rebellion in a very curious
state of mind. To the practical eye there
never was a people more utterly beaten and
broken ; never a region more desolate than
theirs. And yet these State-rights cheva
liers are as cool and as complacent, and as
unconscious of having violated their oaths
and lost their honor, as if all had been a
dream. You would suppose that they had
either accomplished some great achievement
and were waiting for the deserved laurel
wreath, or that they had been inexpressi
bly outraged, and were waiting for some
public atonement and compensation. Let
me give you the last best specimen. A few
days ago I wrote a short letter, over my
usual signature, advising the Southern peo
ple that if their leaders coaxed the impeni
tent Copperheads less, and trusted the mis
represented Radicals more, it would be bet
ter in the end; and I gave three reasons for
this advice, via : that the Copperheads
wanted power and could not get it ; that
the Radicals have the power and would
probably hold it; and that if the Southern
people cheerfully agreed to that which
the Radicals were resolved to secure,
and had the influence to keep, and
which_ the South could not prevent—name
ly, the practical recognition of all the duties
to the freedmen resulting, from the abolition
of slavery, they would be generously and
even munificently treated by these self-same
Radicals. The advice thus tendered in good
faith, has not been, I grieve to say, well re
ceived by the F. F. V's., or at least by their
organ, the Richmond Commercial Bulletin.
When it is recollected that this sheet is per
mitted to be published by a generous' Go
vernment, and that the condition of its
existence, that of a reasonable fealty to the
authority of that Government, is insolently
neglected, we have a fair sample of " the
chivalry" in its abusive tirade upon " Oc
casional." I extract a paragraph :
The coolness of ' Occasionai's 3 propositions
—the reckless audacity that induces him to
plead the cause of the Radicals before the
South (unless, indeed, our supposition that the
faction he represents is in the market bidding
for the smiles of our Southern rebels' and
traitors'—not to say murderers, pirates,'
'savages,' and so on—he correct) we can scarce
ly comprehend. That this destructive band of
agitators and plotters against our, peace and
welfare—this incendiary conclave Of diS
tuners of the public weal, who, for
years and years, devoted themselves to
the task of arraying the - sentiment of
the North against us, and finally com
pelled us in self-defence to raise the standard
of war against their encroachments—this furi
ous brotherhOod of ahlOody-mindecl creed who
first applied the torch to our political institu
tions., and, amid the havoc of battle, urged
their unwitting tools, the soldiers of 'the
Union,' to cement the unholy inspirations of
their - black hearts with the blood of our
slaughtered people—this shameless, craven
gathering of conspirators against the popular
lights of the North and South alike—that these
should call upon us now to 'diStrust and-de
spise' those men who in that dark hour, when
the gale was at its highest, and the ship at its
most perilous extremity, stood manfully upon
deck calling upon the mutineers to hold their
hand, is indeed the - very ecstacy of an inso
lence that goes beyond the circle of belief."
Nobody but a thorough-bred F. F: V.
could have perpetrated this.. He never
thought what he was doing could only in
jure his own people, and confirm the un
just impression that the South was. con
trolled by a set of ungrateful and reck
less political scoundrels, who swear the
most solemn oaths and ask for pardon
in the most abject manner, only - to
break the one and abuse the other. He
never thought he was assailing, in terms at
once 51a - odorous and indecent, the power
ful party that held the free States, and that
they could hold him and his fellow-traitors
in complete subjugation, as long as the latter
continued to show themselves unworthy of
respect or confidence. He never reflected
that these men could do without the South
for a generation, and were in no way de
pendent upon it for any one necessary of
life, mental or otherwise. Not he ! the
dear delicious scion of a dear delicious old
stock ! He never thought of any. one of
these things. He would only trust the -De
mocrats, indignantly kick the Radicals, and
calmly await the return, to power f his
sympathetic friends I The closing threat is
the most emphatic :
"When the Radicals shall satisfy us that
they are ready to atone for the errors of the
past, in the better action of the future, we may,.
accord to them, however faintly, something of
the confidence that we now impose in the put.
poses of the Democrats and Conservatives of
the North. But should they persist in their
malevolence—should they seek still further to
attach to us the penalties that, by reason of
physical force, theyhave almost placed within
their g. rasp, we will await patiently. for , the
day when all. shall yet be even—trusting to
that justice that sooner or later overtakes the
wrongdoer, and makes clear the vindication
of honest purposes—that hour, indeed, when,
under better auspices, our people may say, in
the exulting clamor of a triumphant acclaim,
Bertram's right and Bertram's might
Have net on Ellengowan , s height.'
This gallant editor actually pants for
another rebellion ! To avoid this, how
ever, he will take an apolagy from the Ra
dicals. It would be a mortal pity if such
men. as these held the destinies of the
Southern people in their hands. Happily,
as I have said, the race. of empty TiotspUTS
and noisy declaimers. is fading out before
the robust common. sense born of the
progress of broad ideas and made

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7,1865
The City Railroads on Sunday.
What adds to the attraCtiOne Of. Washington
and to the comforts of the masses, is the inn
ning of the cars on the city railroads on Sunday,
A great outcry was made when The Chronicle,
in a series of bold and fearless articles, a year
ago, advocated this as a measure of justice to
- the working people and to the Clerks of the
departments, thousands'of whom have to toil
all the working days of the week, and could not
afford the extravagant hire of horses and
vehicles on Sunday. The °amide was de
nounced by a number of the clergymen, but
its arguments were so conclueive that the
railroad companies made the experiment. It
was predicted that dissipation of all kinds
would ensue. The result is, there is not any
where a more peaceful city on the Sabbath
day. Crowds go to church in these coaches of
the people, and the most pious persons do not
hesitate, in this city of magnificent distances,
to go from Capitol Hill to West End and
from West End to Capitol Hill to their re-
SpeOtiVe places of worship, The different
rural resorts are visited by large coneoursee,
and no fighting or drinking has ever taken
place. In New York the same course is
adopted, with equally good results. Chicago,
that most 'wonderful and flourishing of West
ern 'Name, whore the people are at least as
intelligent and as good as anywhere, has its
city railroads in use on Sunday, and nobody
suffers in consequence. Why should Phila
delphia be in the background? Will your city
fathers and leading- men never understand
that it is the push and enterprise, and the
really comprehensive benevolence that mark
the West that have given it the prece
dence in the race for empire? Your pro
mtnent men must put more fire into their
compositions or they will be left behind.
The hundreds of thousands of workingmen
who spend their Sundays at home, worn out
after a hard week's work, and see their little
ones cooped up in small houses or driven out
into close alleys or hot streets, should demand
from your city authorities the same deserved
indulgence and Cheap facilities that are con
ceded to and enjoyed by the producing classes
The Washington Canal and Cholera.
The open and exposed condition of the
Washington canal, the stagnant deposits in
which breed all sorts of malaria in this hot
weather, excites much discussion, and sur
prise is turning to anger that.themunicipal
authorities continue to be indifferent to the
universal wish that it may be arched or
Cleansed, so as to prevent an invitation, as it
were, to contagious disease. The unusual
health of Washington, notwithstanding the'
myriads of men that have passed•through and
surrounded it since the beginning of the re
bellion, and the enormous refuse growing out
of the cattle, horseS, and provisions, Congre
gated here for their transportation and
sustenance, ought not to lead the Go
vernment or the local authorities to• sup
pose that the cholera-would leave us un
touched, In view of the wonderful growth-of
the town itself, and the preparations for the
approaching session of Congress, which will
be of the most interesting character, attract
ing people from all parts of the country and
the world, the President. should take charge
of these matters himself, and should let the
People's representatives decide whether the
accruing expenses should be paid out of the
National treasury or by taxation of the citi
Amusements in Washington.
Last night the circus was attended by from
three to four-thousand persons, and Grover's
Theatre and other places of amusement were

been felt in Washington, and I understand
that our enterprising -citizen,- Mr. Wm. U. Mar

purchased China Hall, a large store on Penn

second story of which will be fitted up in good
style, and prepared for a coneert-room Of the
first-class. The location is admirably adapted
for this purpose. The hotels are well filled,:
and travel to and from the South is rapidly.

going on in the neighborhOod. Washington is

Populous cities in America,nud its destiny in
this respect will be sure if Congress begins
operations by giving it other railroad connec

W. W. Corcoran.
The inteiligencer, of this morning, states that
Air. W. W. CORCORAN has announced his inten
tion to return to Washington, after an ab
sence of .more than Whr years. lie will be
much surprised to find the city which has
been the scene of the acquisition of his great
fortune, so much changed during that time.
What many Of his former associates expect
ed to rule as aristocrats and despots, or
to ruin by the sheer force of their conquering
armies, is now a real National metropolis ;
he will find slavery abolished, a new spirit
infused into society, and his thousands of
acres of land vastly enhaneed,in value. I have
not heard that Mr. CORCORAN took any violent
part with these men, while. in Paris. Ire was,
undoubtedly, on intimate terms with Mison
and SLIDELL and. that set, and his son
in-law, Brants, was a . somewhat noto
rious iiieW Orleans secessionist. But
Mr. COnoonAN never was a politician, and
if he bad any dealings with these wretched
plotters, it was because of his personal asso,
cation. It is to be presumed that he and the.
GOverliMent have a fair -understanding as to.
their future relations.

The Claims of New York
Governor Feerrow is in Washington on busi
ness connected with the muster-out of New
York troops and the settlement of the claims
of the State against the general Government.
It is understood that about one million four
hundred thousand of these claims are favor
ably considered, and a draft will be imme-
Mutely drawn in favor of the state for about
$BOO,OOO. The Governor is of the opinion that
vouchers can be produced that will result in
the speedy adjustment of nearly the whole
amount, if not the entire Claim, itself.
The Compound Tnterest Notesa
The Treasury Department has printed thir
ty-six millions of.the simper cent. compound
interest notes, to replace those received in
business transactions. The right to issue
them for the five per cent. interest note's is
also conferred by law. By this arrangement
about 15300,000 of accrued' interest has been
saved to the Government withinthe last three
months. All of these notes are legal tender.
There is no increase of the currency, hat
merely the issuing of new notes for old ones
at a saving to the Government.

Major General HOWARD has ordered the
agent for Loudon county, Virginia, to suspend
action with regard to property claimed to be
confiscated, till the record shall he carefully

Sudden Death of an Ordnance Offider.
Lieut. S. B. Wurivotern, soon after playing a
game of billiards last night, died, of conges
tion of 'the brain. From papers found on his
person, it appears that he was a member of the
18th New York -Cavalry, had been on duty in
the Ordnance Department, and had just set
tled his account.
An Important Error Corrected.
A verbal error which has appeared in some
of the newspapers has been deemed of suffl
Went importance for official correction, The
Secretary of State says the section in which it
occurs is as follows:
"'And be it further enacted, That all persons'
now by law entitled to a less pension than
heretofore specified, who shall have lost one
Riot and one hand in the military service of
the Vnited States, and in the line of his (their)
duty, shall be entitled to twenty dollars per
This section, the Secretary says, is printed
in the pamphlet edition of the laws of the last
session of Congress precisely according to the
Original roll, with the exception that the word
his is underscored-that is, put in italics—and
the - word " their " put in brackets, the reason
for which is obvious. The error is that the
newspapers have printed the word " or," in
stead of the word "and," between the words
"foot" and "hand." The Acting Commis
sioner of Pensions says that without this cor
rection the business of the Bureau would he
uselessly increased without benefit to anyone.

he was at Andersonville every month inn the

corn crop in 1863, but not much wheat; there

dents of North:Broad strrai it, who are opposed
to the construction of at z .'ailroad on that tho

Wm. J. Howard, Esq.,- mat, e a lengthy ad

a speculation on the part Orta tomanagers of
the proposed railroad, andt A 1 that account
they deserved no mercy Ikon, the citizens.
The company had promised the .t they would
use horses on Broad street, but s such promises
were only individual. and he - did .. not put much
faith in them.. Every legal MK should be
employed to defeat them• in this , ir object of
thus marring the beautflied overact . of our city.
Mr. George F. Gordon said that a Tempt and
inimetilate action was necessary,. a r the com
pany might get their road-laid befoi "e the pro
per legal means could be-used to. eL ibar them
from so doing
Mr. John Dr :Kennedy began by atm Ping that
he was a director in five different raffia rays, and
this at least gave him some knowiedl m of the
subject. The circular,- which was. to be pre
sented to, the various - candidates-, went far
enough, but the question; after all, ve - as one
which the people at /arge had a right to de
termine. If they would declaim it nod eggary,
there would be nothing to be - said:. But he did
not believe that such would-be the ea se. It
was necessary, however,•that a report sl'iould
be contradicted. It was stated.-that the I 'ann.
sylvania Railroad Company hadt furnished a
part of the money for .the furtheranoo of
the seherne. AS one Of the city direciors
on that road, and representing the Bowe
amount of stock owned by the city,
be would say that no one connected with
the Pennsylvania Railroad had furnished
means for it or - had any sympathy with the
matter. This matter, however, would be pro
cn - posed by the lad investagatiOn. In
reference to the use of steam on the road, he
said that in former charters the other cora•
panics were restricted to the gauge of live
feet two inches, and the use of horse-power.
This charter, however, contains the- sweeping
declaration that -the company is. conferred
with all the rights, powers, and privileges
which are now enjoyed by any railway Com
pany chartered by the State of Pennsylvania,
and any acts or parts of acts inconsistent with
this proposition are repealed. Where, then,
would be the brunt of this I The compan y could
lay a track of four feet cightkand a half inches
on the street, and -thus make the connecting
link between the• Trenton and the Baltimore
Railroads. It was reported that the Company
had made contracts for laying the track and
building cars of the gauge of five feet two
inches but no one could know what would be
the po'icy of the road two years hence. It was
his conviction that the conapany intended to
make it a first-class freight road, as well as a
passenger road, because it was nothing but a
speculation, and that was the only way in
which it could be made to pay. If the people
of Germantown want better accommodations,
let them buy enough stock of the Norristown
Railway tO control its management Norm of
them, he thought, wished to make this-assault
upon the rights of the Broad street residents.
A gentleman stated that he understood that

record, and they do well to perpetuate the
glories of the strife. We have received a pam

not yet alit chosen. It is stated that General
Grant will hold the highest official, position in

generals will occupy prominent positions in
the society. It is designed that the Legion
shall bear the same relation to the late war
that the Society of the Cincinnati did to the
war of independence. The preamble sets forth

CRICKBT.—A friendly game of cricket
took place yesterday afternoon, between the -
Olympian Cricket Club, of this city, and the
Camden Base Ball Club, on the grounds of the
latter. But few spectators were present on
account of no public notice havingbeen given
that such a match was to come off. The ver
dant Crieketers of the Camden batted well. It
was observable, during the game, that the
swift underhand bowling was more effective
than the round-arm, which is the reverse of
what is most frequently the case. The base
ball boys fell an easy prey to the cricketers—
the latter winning by ten wickets. A base-ball
Match, between-the two clubs, will occur at an
early date, when the Caublenites arc expected
to reciprocate—as far as being victorious is
concerned. We annex the score:

THE PETROLEten TRAM OF PITILADEL
ma-tn.—The petroleum trade of this city has,
within the past few years, grown to such an
extent that the business of shipping it is now
absorbing the attention of a large and wealthy
class of mercantile' houses, and is gradually
taking the same channels for domestic pur
poses as the coal trade. It has, in the length
of time since the business of its manufacture
and shipment was begun, done more to de
velop the commerce and manufactures of the
Silty, and to add to its wealth, than any other
single article of export. Markets for this im
portant article are being established every.,
where, and the demand is becoming more
regular in its character. With more capital
and energy, the importance of this article as
an export will exceed that of anthracite coal.
To assist in its speedy shipment, lines of con
necting railway have been laid. The branch
railroad from Blairsville, on the Pennsylvania
Railroad, to Freeport enthe Allegheny river,
is completed and ready for use. At Freeport
the Allegheny Valley road joins and connects
that place]with Kittanning. From this place
the road to the oil region is not completed,
but when finished will be a very accessible
route to the oil territory.
AmavEnsAny.--Yesterday, sixteen years
since Gen. Zachary Taylor, then President of
the United States passed along the river
front of Philadelphia, on his return from West
Point to Washington. The city of Philadel
phM was all alive with people in consequence
ofthe expected arrival. IV Was estimated that
fifty thousand citizens assembled on the
wharves and shipping . . Steamboat bells were
rung, steam-whistles blown; and the peOple
generally were wild with enthusiasm. The
health of President Taylor was feeble, and it
being too dangerous a thing to him to land, he
was transferred from one steamboat to the
other in the stream, above the navy yard. The
pe9ple, we well remember, were sadly disap
pointed. The weather on that day, the 7th of
September, 1849, was pretty =eh. the same as
that of yesterday, clear, and decidedly hot.
No REDUCTION OF THE WITHAVZ Tex.—
Commissioner Orton, in reply to a letter of in.
quiry on the subject, has said : "My opinion
has been asked several. times recently as to
the propriety or probability of a reduction of
the tax on distilled spirits by the next Con.
g. , reas. I have invariably replied that no re
duction whatever would be proposed or favor
ed by me; and that it is possible to collect the
tax at tiro dollars per gallon as thoroughly as
at any lower rate." Notwithstanding the
efforts of interested parties, it is not probable
that there wilt be any reduction in thwspirit
