The public , debt statement for the

in the debt for the month 'is $8,701,976
which is a fair aver*e-dim l inution.
Since March 1, 1869, the debt has been
red ucifd:5242,134,402. ,At This rate, we

'l 1w exciting topic in Npl i l York is
who . or what is to blame for the fearful
disaster that caused the deeh of about
persons, and the Wellri ling, scald
ing and maiming of an equal or greater
number. It was a horrible calamity;
and few have a realizing sense of the
terrible agony of the sufferers-who,lin
gered hours, and even days, with bare,
burned nerves, shrinking and quiver
ing down to a merciful death. Nothing
definite can be ascertained as to the
cause of the accident, though many
theories are plausibly advanced by en
gineers and experts as to what may
'have caused the explosion. Tho cause
will never be known to a ceetainty ;
tind before the excitement of this dies
wit, it will, no doubt, be over-lapped by
unt , iiter grand accident, which, let us

recollect anything of the fiendish net
on a ;'outhern railroad, by which an
entire - regiment was demolished ?—the
trestle work having been converted into
a trap for precipitating a thousand then
to the bard, stony ground, by the chiv

cannon, scarcely a man escaping—from
a bight of one hundred feet.
The explosion on the Westfield, Sun

in New York, through the peculiar and
distressing circumstances attending it ;

the Mississippi,', causing twice the loss
of life, the very names of the boats be

truth is, that American eteamboating
and railroading have produced such . a
constant . line of great disasters that
men have become calloused ; the daily,
or at least weekly call on the sympa

the chords of feeling, and induced a
sort of.nonehalant fatalism amongst
the traveling portion of our people,
who, when about to travel, buy aten

Dear Sir : Still in the land of the liv-,
ing, but suffering from hot weather ter
ribly: We are now in great need of rain
in our section of the country, so much
so that the corn is actually drying on
the stalk. Up to within three weeks
our crops were splendid, now they are

ter at Leesville, verdict of Coroners in
quest the old stereotyped one, came to
his death from gun shot wounds in the
hands of some unknown person or
persons. The facts las ,far as can be
learned are these. Mr. Sitigeltary had
been In this place all day (July 24th,)
and left here for his home (18 miles
north of this) on the cars which make
Leesville at 11 p. m. On his way from
the depot to-his own house (which is
but a short distance,“) he was fired upon
and instantly killed. He received one
load of - small shot in the breast, one pis
tol or rifle shot in the face and some sev
en of the latter shots in the back. It is
hardly possible that one man could have
done all the shots: One witness said
that bearing the report of a"gun, he got
out of bed, and while going to the win
dow, he beard a second shot ; and upon
opening the window, he saw a man
running past; could not say whether
it was a white or a black man. The
case rests right there. To be sure we
will have a proclamation made, and
reward offered, but what of that? Men

Mr. Singeltary was a native of this
state, and had been a Densoerat, until
the last election ; since which time he
has been an out-spoken Republican.
There was considerable opposition to
his being appointed Post Master, and
lately he had been warned by anony
mous writers togive up the P. 0. or he
would be killed. In conversation with
Mr. Singeltary on the day preceding
the night of his death, he told me he
considered his life in • danger, that
there were parties who suspected him
of trying to ferret out the murders of
the two colored men who were banged
in that vicinity some font; months since.

Voters of the Fourth Judicial District:
—Consider the following reasons why
Mr. C. H. Seymour should be elected to
the office of President Judge of this dis
trict, to fill the place of Judge White,
instead of Judge Williams :
let. Judge Williams was elected for
ten years as Additional Law Judge
in this district, and his term of office is
only about half expired ; and without
hie being elected, he can continue as
such judge, with the same emoluments
as If elected to fill Judge White's place.
2d. Judge Williams has done noth
ing for his party, nor for the people of
this district, to entitle him to an elec
tion to this office while he still retains
the other, - which most men would be
satisfied with, without seeking another
while holding on to that.
3d. If Judge Williams is elected—as
the law is, as published in last week's
Agitator—some attorney, who is assist
ing him for that purpose, will be ap
pointed to fill his place until the elec
tion of 1872; when there will be the
expense and trouble of another elec
tion for an Additional Law Judge for
ten years from that time. Butif Judge
Williams is permitted to remain where
he is, all the strife, trouble and expense
of such an election will be avoided.
4th. Under the Constitution of this
State, the law in relation to an addi
tional law judge cannot be repealed to
take effect during the continuance of
a judge's term of office, but may at the
end of a term. Therefore, if the office
of Additional Law Judge in this dis
trict is unnecessary, as most people
think except 'those who want the place,
the law can be repealed to take effect
at the end of Judge Williams's term,
seven years sooner than it otherwise
wili be,—and a saving of seven years'
salary, or $28,000, to the State thus ef
fected. •

tended to say then. Ido not mean to state posi
tively what I will do under circumstances that
have not arrison, except that I never been a can
didate against the ticket, and shall not be now.
Very Truly Yours,
JUDOS. WILLIAMS, Dear Sir:--Yours of the 3d
inst., in relation to your being a candidate in the
other counties of the judicial district if Unsuc
cessful in this, was duly received. And I!reply,
that I think you are mistaken in supposing
"that Judge White wrote to mo last Saturday,
as I did not receive any communication 16mhim
by letter, in relation to the matter until tine; he
did conoludo to withdraw from tho canvass on
Monday following. I think also yon are mis
taken in supposing that you said to me that you
"did not know you would be a candidate "if I car
ried this county!' but tkat you would hold that
subject under advisement. Whatever may have
been your intention.
And although you are correct irrgiayng there
was no bargain between you and , , :y,, that you
would not be a candidate in the ,Other: counties
against me, if beaten in this, in the sense in
which the word .bargain is generally and proper
ly understood, yet in the conversation we had In
relation to my being a candidate; and before I
consented to have my name announced as such,
and before Judge White had finally conoluded to
withdraw his name, last Monday, you did dis
tinctly say to me that if you were not Successful
or were beaten in this county, you would not be
I\ iv
in my way in the ther counties of the district.
You told me that when you stated to me that
for certain reasons, hich I sonsidered satitfao
tory to you) you did nlfeel at liberty to with
draw from the canvass ?otherwise disposed to
do so; and I so stated 't
Judge White and others
soon after, not because I onsidered your stet:.
merit of much importance, at in reply to enqui
ries or suggestions as to whether you would or
not be a candidate in the Other counties if beaten
In your own. But if I summedtl you are unsuc
cessful, I will not for a mome t consider you
•bound by anythincyouittaid!to m‘in relation to
your being a candidate, after, the short time you;
had to consider the matter. And I. leave it
altogether to you as a matter of tastei t id policy
whether you will or not be a' candida 0 in the
b I
ether counties of the district illyou-are sten in
this. Believing you will" think
,ea.'l do, ttut if
you are unsuesessful in this 'County, yo u emaat
afford to still claim the nomination for the`pur
pose merely of changing from one office toate
ther of th e same emoluments atid; - grade„ four r
-five years before your term of office half 'expire
to which you have been elected..l'usm ' inclined
to think that most men would be tatisfied to have
your position and salary, without asking for ano
ther place while that continues; yet I may be
mistaken. — But I do think that -if you desire
,anything like a fair, honest issue in this case,
you ought to stop , your assistants (I will not say
friends) from trying to make some of the - people
of Wellsbore and vicinity believe that I am, or
that I have been, opposed to the Washer° and
Lawrenceville railroad; and that if I ehonld be
come the Judge of this dietriot, I would try the
oases pending In relation to damages; as you,
and most of those who are trying to circulate
these stories, must know they_are not true. It
must be known, that from my residence away
from the place where our courts are held, I, and
others here so situated, are in favor, and ever
have been in favor of having this railroad fin
ished as speedily aspossible; and that if elected
to the office of Judge, my connection with the rail
road cases pending would wholly cease • and
that I could not try the either as judge or
counsel. Yours, respectful ly.
C. H. SETMOtit.
To the members of tho Vigilance Committees:--
The Republican county Convention of last year
having decided to try the " Crawford county sys
tem" of pr imary elections, wherein every Repub
lican 'rot r his due and proper influence in
choosing candidates for the variods ' offices, by
voting dipectly for them, thus removing the pow
er out of the bands of irresponsible delegates,
and platting ()Very man on• an , lequal footing, to
choose whom he pleases; yet nbmitting himself
to the will of the majority—for no man has the
ewe rig ht to vote at a primary election who
does not intend to support the candidates chosen
by a majority of 'the party organization of which
ho is virtually a member,—to you is entrusted
the conducting or inauguration of this system.—
The County Committee, in choosing you for this
purpose, believe, that your attachment• to the
principles of 'the Republican party, and a desire
for the welfare of your country, will induce you
to make some sacrifice of your time. And fa
order,to.carry out successfully the'objectinview,
(a faii - nomination,) it is desirable that you she'd
be punctual at the place of election in each town
ship, prepared with pen and paper for the recor
ding of the names of the voters, accepting their
ballets, and carefully enumerating the votes cast
for each" loandidate ; exercising the same contrst
as a regti/ar election board.
