An accident having disabled our press, we
were obliged to ask the use of the press of
our cotemporary of the Republican,until onr
own could be repaired. This courtesy,
usual among members of the fraternity, and
which the proprietors of tliU paper have,
in time past, taken pleasuie in extend
ing to the Republican, wag not denied us,
and our last three issues have been printed in
the Republican office. Last lfght about one
o'clock our pressman was notified by Mr
Hayes, editor and proprietor of the Repub
lican, that in consequence of some strictures
on a recent editorial of bis. contained iu the
correspondence of the Herald, writ
ten by Mr. Mason, tbe editor of Ibie paper,
be would not conseut that another issue ot the
Herald should be printed on his press. In
ibis dilemma, we have no alternative but to
make up so much of the matter preparer! tor

smaller press, and give it to tbe public with
It is proper to state that Mr. Mason, as is

THE WEATHEK ASD CROPS.
A delightful aud welcome cbauge in tbe

passed over our city on the ltith iust., and

Judging trom all the information we have
been able to gather respecting the crops of
com, potatoes, peas, >fcc., the present year
bids fair to be one of the most fruitful that
has ever been known. The crops consist,
for the most part, of the necessaries of life,
to the exclusion of articles intended for the
With an abundance of corn and potatoes
there will, at any rate, be uo suffering. The
high prices now paid for cotton must result
in tbe general circulation of money, aud
contribute greatly to relieve the people of
the financial embarrassments under which
they have been patiently laboring since tbe
return of peace.
Taking this correct view of the present
condition of things we think tbe Southern
people may properly regard it as a good
omen that Providence smiles upon them in
these manifestations of merciful beneficence.
We sincerely rejoice that the period of
greatest suffering has passed, and that in fu

THE LADIES OF ÜBORUIA AND THE
RFLEASE AND PARDON OF JF.F
Mrs. F. A. Campbell, Miss A. A. Bull,
and Mrs. S. W. Swanson, of LaGrauge, ap
peal to the ladies of Georgia to move at
once in the matter of petitioning President
Johnson for the release and pardon of Jef
In response to this appeal, a meeting of
the ladies of Augusta, had been called, to
meet at the Masonic Hall, in that city on
Tuesday last, to take such action as might
be deemed advisable. By the Constitution
alist of the 15th we observe that the meet
ing hail been deferred, and that the petition
for the release and pardon of Mr. Davis
would be presented to the citizeus tor their
signatures at their residencies. The move
ment is, we believe, to be general
throughout tbe State, if not throughout the
States comprising the late Confederacy.—
Whatever may be the iutlueuce of such an
appeal to the President in behalf of the
distinguished chief of tiie late rebel govern
ment, it will, uo doubt, receive the signa
tures of the great majority of the ladies of
the South, secessionists and unionists.
Modern Finundering-Pauic among the
Bull* a ltd Btrih ol' Wall Street.
We give this morning a full account of the
last grand financiering operation in New
York, by which it will be seen that the sus
ceptible Jenkius has been entirely eclipsed by
that bold operator Ketchum. The discovery of
these great financial operations, has uad the
effect to produce quite a panic among the
Bears and Bulls of Wall street, with an
alarming tumble in stocks. The editor of
the Herald is evidently alarmed at tbe pros
pect. He says in his issue of Wednesday :
There was a terrible excitement in Wall
street yesterday. The scenes of 1837 and
'57 seemed likely to be re-enacted, aud even
on a m_>re gigantic scale. See our uews col
umns and money article for particulars.
Tbe present week opened in that famous
street with a decidedly panicky feeling. The
Phenix Bank affair had engendered distrust,
and the suspicions that hung upon the oper
ations ot one of the gold speculators on Sat
urday became glaring facls on Monday, and
increased the excitement. Yesterday morn
ing tbe street was alive with tumors; stocks
were pressed on the market, and when it was
evident that an outburst of some description
was likely to be the feature of the day, some
of tbe leading railroad shares suffered a de
cline of eight to ten per cent from tbe quo
tations of Monday. When it became known
tkft one of tbe mo* prominent firms bsfi
came intense What tbe result will be re
mains to be seen Perhaps many will be
forced into the position of bankrupts before
tbe close of another day. Tbe beginning of
the end is approaching, and unless wane radi
cal change is made, and that speedily, in <>ur
financial system, we must pass through a
depressing ordeal before we regain our for
mer healthy condition.
It was so in England during tier monetary
troubles between 1815 and 1825. Panics,
revulsions and defalcations were of alin.ASt
weekly occurrence while she was endeavor
iug to restore her fiuances, and some of the
leading men in the kingdom, including those
holding high military stations as well as naval
officers and noblemen, were swallowed up in
those frequent financial maelstroms. If we
would avoid those difficulties we must change
our course, and check ihe inordiuate desire
for speculation that has seized the minds of
mo't of the men who operate in the vicinity
of Wa’l street.
Removal of a Collector. —Mr. Simeon
Draper, Collector of the Port of New York,
has been removed by President Johnson, and
Hon. Preston King appointed as his succes-
I or. Ex Collector Draper is charged w ill)
having been in the habit ot exacting a tariff
oi uis own on merchandise, to the extent of
one cent per pound ou ail the cotton shipped
here from tbe Sonth, w'ith a variety ot other
ees aud exactions, under the guise of truck
age, porterage, weighing, insjiectiou, <fcc.,
all without any shadow of authority of law.
The one cent a pound paid on cotton was
iu addition to the internal revenue legal im
post authorized at two cents a pound. This
enormous exaction, says the Herald, has bei n
directed to be paid back, the Secretary ot
the Treasury so instructing his Collector, Mr.
Draper. And, of course, apart trom any po
litical reasons, this condition of things ren
dered the removal imperative, which it ap
pears was immediately determined upon by
President Johnson, giving Draper barely time
to adjust bis accounts if be can.
Trouble with tile Virginia Negroes.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald says :
Grave difficulties have ariseu between the
citizeus of Mecklenburg county, Virginia,
and the Ireedmeu heretofoie living as slaves
iu that county. The presence ot armed ne
gro troops in the county does not seem to
operate to stay the ravages of the free ne
groes, who, congregating at one or two or
more prominent poiuts in the county, kill
the sheep, poultry and hogs, and devastate
tbe cornfields, melon and other patches,
without stint. The white people are repre
sented as being paralyzed, refusiug to pro
tect themselves, fearing that the military
power will bear heavily upon them should
they interrupt the proceedings of the negro
marauders Goveinor Peirpoint and the
State authorities, without exception, are vety
much exercised upon the important suhiect
of what is to be dooe with tbe negroes ot the
State. It is certainly a black enigma.

The street was alive with rumors during the morn

an established fact that Mr. Charles Craham, a pro

large amount through Edwin Ketchum, who, for the
last two months, had been in charge of the business
