We suggest that a Convention of the counties composing the 2d Congressional District Ihj held in AMEBIGUS on WEDNESDAY, 21st day of September, for the purpose or nominating camli- dates to the unexpired term of the 41st and for the 42d Congress. Counties 'requested to hold meetings at an early day and appoint delegates—each county appointing twice as many delegates they have representatives in the lower branch of the Legislature. Let every county be represented. All newspapers in the District are re quested to copy. Appointing Under the resolutions of the Democat- ic State Convention the following gentle men are appointed the Executive Com mittee of tue Democratic party of the State of Goorgia: First District—Wm. J. Young, of Tom as, Julian Hatrridge, of Chatham, Second District—W. A. Hawkins, of Sumter, John J. Clarke, of Randolph. Third Dictrict—Martin J. Crawford, of Muscogee, Hugh Buchanan, of Cow eta.

The politics of the South are environed by grave difficulties, ar.d the only means of avoiding disastrous results is by high < onrage, even temper, decided action and n perfect union. The time has, proba bly, never been when :;o much was in volved in a political contest, and when such careful action was necessary. These are truths, earnest truths, tlint calmly considered. It is folly in the people to sit supinely j T J- by’and expect tire future to take care of! ^ 10 P ( itself, and the salvation of free, constitu- j nomination. Rome Thoughts on th* Campaign. The campaign is now jnst opening, and it is important that wo should not forget the preearionrooss of oar position. What we do in the present campaign, must be done in a high conservative (we don’t like that word conservative, but it is the best we can do), spirit, harmony must prevail, discord must be discarded. The interest of the People, the State and this nation requires uuanimity of action and concert of purpose. We most look at the past and learn therefrom for the future. In the conduct of tiro campaign there should be but few public demonstrations, but few public harangues, no appeals to tho passions, no illusions to the past, reference to the glorious cliivalry of the “ boys in grey” uud tho more glorious cause for which they fought, no biUc denunciations should be indulged, but the whole conduct of the campaign should be earnest, quiet, yet determined. There is no necessity of concealing the fact that the Radicals are going to make a desperate effort, they will leave no stone unturned, and already are they boasting of their perfect and superior organization. And, now, when we know this there is nothing left us but work, hard work, if we would put the Government in hands of the people’s servants. We think the work to be done can be better done by individual, private efforts, than by publio assembling and speaking. While we do not object to the candidates for Congress canvassing the District and, if desirable, making public speeches^ still think all other candidates hod best work,—more good can be done in this way, and if anything wrong| or injudi cious is said by them there will not be so many ears for it to enter and months by which it can be repeated, and in closely contested campaign. ,omebodv is always sure to say sometuing wrong. Upon the whole we think the better plan is for everybody to work, an<l but few speak. Public meetings and speeches are apt to engender hatred and arouse passions and those ore thing to be avoid ed in tho present campaign. Let work lie the word. Hon. Nelson Tut.—We plaoc at our mast-head, this morning, the name of onr old pioneer, CoL Nelson Tift, who under took the race for Congress when donbt and fear hnng around the hearts of all, and triumphantly bore tho banner of De mocracy through the contest. The heel of the military despot was then upon our necks, the passion* of tho opposition ran high, tho hopes of the lovers of freedom were weak at the time of his first race, •t l>c j jet, notwithstanding this, he grasped the j shattered banner and bore it ou to victo- and will do it again, and we e him receive a unanimous ; Democratic Meeting. Wo hope the citizens of Sumter will bear in mind that the Democratic Party have a meeting in Americas on tho 17th September, for the purpose of nominat ing two Representatives, also appointing delegates to attend the nominating Con ventions on the 20th and 21st prox.

Colored man the Radicals have not kept their promises with you ! Ask yourself how many times you have been deceived by them. £&* Florida beiug only entitled to one Representative in Congress, the Radicals have nominated Josiah T. Wall, negro, for the position. That’s right—we think it proper for the negroes to demand nom inations at the hands of the Radical par ty, and get them, too. tional government to be worked out by stranger hands. The time for the cry of Oh, we are conquered, what can wc do,” has passed into the jmst. Wc arc not conquered beyond the hope of victory. Thu fifty thousand majority wc had iu the Presidential election rings out in clarion note*>, and unmistakably sjtcaks what bo accomplished by work, earnest work. The importance of tho present paign to the people of Georgia, when compared with tho Presidential, measurable. Tins present one is for home aud home intcrcsts. Every man iu Geor gia is interested, and every man must put his shoulder to the wheel. But the future is full of strange un certainties and onr condition is an anom alous one. While we have got to work, we. at the same time, have got to work unobjectionable. The powers that be, thrqugh their spokesman for Georgia, Mr. Aker man, have said if the Democrat ic party is successful the election shall be set aside if the least possible pretext can be hatched np. While wo are for from advocating submission to usurpation at the sacrifice or suspension of principle or right, still we think it best that the pres ent campaign be condncted in a quiet, nnimpnssioned manner. Let private work supercede public demonstrations. Let private talks supplant public speak ing. If this bo be done, and the people keep cool and govern their tempers, the Democratic Party, like an avalanche, will sweep everything liefore it in the State. There are no doubt many who will oppose a conduct of the campaign on the line suggested by ns. There are al ways men who wish to carry everything by lire and storm, provided they can get dupes to bear the brunt, bat we sincerely hope the Democratic party, during the campaign, will bo one undivided whole, free from all dissensions and discords— striving for the one single good of depos ing Radical usurjwtion and substituting therefor freedom and economy, and res pect for the rights of alL Let the work be commenced with a determination to succeed and let all work together for the common weak Then work and gether.

The suggestion os to the time, for the nomi nating Convention to meet, made by ns :t few days since, wc fear was rather ear ly, and wo, therefore, recommend that a convention be held hereon Tuesday, 20th •September, for the purpose of nomina ting a Senator, and wo request that the j*eoplc of Schley and Macon coantics hold notings and appoint delegates to attend on the 20th prox. The usual rule, we believe, is twice tho number of delegates to Representatives in the lower branch of ihe Legislature. In sending delegatee we trust the very boat and most discreet men will be select ed, for this is a time for earnest and ju dicious work—we are steering to avoid both Sylla and Cbarybdis, and steady 1 muds must ply the oars. The people of Sumter might nominate Representatives when they meet to ap point delegates to attend the Conven tions to nominate a Senator and Con gressmen, and we therefore suggest that a county meeting be held far those pur- -poses, on Saturday, 17th September.— Let everybody, both white and black, who favor a change in, theadministration of Affairs, come, and let^ be a har- monjf of feeling uid action on tll» part of The following, which wc take from the Lexiugton, Ky., Observer, expresses our sentiments so precisely that we give it place in our columns : "On IU Last Legs.” Tho rapidity with which Yankee papers manufacture news unfavorable to Napo leon and the French army would be amu sing if it were not disgusting. Their tel egrams remind one of the bold falsehoods gotten up against tlio South during the late war. In fact the very same creatures who incessantly informed us that the bellion would bo crushed iu “ ninety days, ” that the rebellion was on its “ last logs, ” and that “ 10,000 prisoners aud 20,000 str.ud of arms ” were constantly being captured, are the very same gath erers up of tho woeful and crashing news from Frt r.ce. Their special reporters in Europe inform them that “ the Freuch army Is annihilated,” “the Empire is crumbling, ” “ Napoleon is dead, ” “the Prince Imperial and the Empress have fled to London, ” “ all is lost, ” etc. After the veiy recent experience of the American people of tho perfect ease with which a nation can be crushed out, with scarcely an effort they will readily believe that all Franco is a! the mercy of her en emies after one comp natively small bat tle. These voroci-..n papers take it for- granted that the American people are to tally in the dark as to a number of things, and among them the following : The population of France far exceeds that of Prussia; the French people are united in their determination to carry the war to a successful end; the i ail way sys tem of France is admirable; her finan- cal condition is good; her arms are folly as great if not grertsr than those of Prussia; her soldiers are equal to any earth, and their arm, the Chaise pot rifle, is acknowledged all over Europe as superior to the Prussian needle gnn. As regards Metz, the present great strategical point, its works were plan ned by Yaubnu, tho greatest military en gineer of his age. It has been immense ly improved and strengthened by the present Emperor, and is considered one of the impregnable fortresses of Europe. Of Paris it, is said that it would require an army of half a million to invest its fortifications, while 80,000 men would suffice to defend them; and for the navy of France, it is in size and efficiency as much superior to the French navy of thirty years ago as tho modern iron c!ad to the Roman galley. All things considered, it is not probable either that the French Empire is **on its last legs” or that it will bo ** crashed in 90 days.” 9u Wjutelet says lie can cany the 2d Congressional District if he can get three good WHITE men, ia each coun ty, to manage aud control the negroes.

To-day I saw it work ed at a distance of 1,500 French metres, which, if I am not mLtakcu, would make about two thousand yards of American measurement. At that distance the gun or machine, «r whatever yon like to name it, won aimed at three black marks upon three didcrent butts, each mark being the height aud width of an average front company of a regiment. Thus as the many thousand* among your are readers have seen service in the field will nmlersiaud, tho three black marks on the three bntls represented, as nearly possible, u brigade of infautry ad vancing against a lottery. Tiie brig ade of liviug men would have token at least twenty minntes, even at doable time, to get over tho ground, Iu half that time—-in ten minutes—the mitraille use had pnt upwards of four hundred balls, or, rather, projectiles, into the three black marks, and every boll was well apart from its fellow; and all this, mind, without any alteration on the part of the officer in charge. Tho weapon, or gun, has merely to be loaded and then leid in a certain direc tion, and it works by itself. The object it is aimed at may come nearer, bat it occasion to be elevated or dc- preseed. It works from left to right and from right io left, and back again, with out ceasing.

Editors Republican : We arrived ii this pleasant and beaatifnl little city i few days since, after a tiresome journey of twenty-three miles from Thomasville, Ga., accomplished in an open baggy over the sandiest, hotest road yon ever traveled. Bat this ride, irksome as it proved, af forded us a splendid opportunity for a minute inspection of the crops along the way; and from onr observations we must say we find the farming interests in this portion of Florida, in a much more pros perous condition than in Sonth-West Georgia. Tho crops we have seen fine ; and we learn from others they are very good throughout this and adjoining counties. Cotton is better than any we have seen in Georgia,—not excepting Dougherty county. We have neither seen nor heard of a Caterpillar in thi* section. There is some rust where fertil izers were applied too abundantly on old and sandy lands. We see another indication of prosperi ty among the farmers here that is remark ed by every passing Georgian, they no Hupped corn. And as a result we find provisions in the country, bacon and corn made at home, hogs growing and corn ma tured for next year’s supplies; and fat mules and horses without so many occur rences of death, “supposed from feeding on damaged corn. ” But best of all re sulting from the planting of corn enough for home consumption and the residue of land in cotton, farmers are out of debt and freed from those disagreeable en cumbrances so universal in South-West Georgia, “Liens and Mortgages growing crops and stock to secure the payment of drafts for “provisions fur nished. ” How long will people so blind to their own interests and so foolish os to make no provisions at home, when they mnst see that everything brought from a foreign market for consumption of rnwn or beast costs them two prices, be sides the most exorbitant interests, when they are forced to purchase on a few months time, with the additional expense and inconvenience of the Liens aud Mort gages of those who are enriching them selves on the downfall of the farmer. At the year’s end the merchant takes the crop at his own price, and the poor “ tiller of the soil ” is foreed from dire necessitv to give another mortgage by which he may subsist the succeeding year. And thus at the end of this year he has con sumed all he has produced this year, and before the end of next year he will have consumed all he will make next year. Is it not the case with many of the planters of Georgia ? The annual crops will soon fail to afford a sustenance, and then the farmer must begin to encroach on his homestead, and ere long if ho continues thus the Lieu and (iro-att d-a-ludf per cent, per month interest will consume all the homestead. It cannot be denied by any reasoning man, that unless the farmers of Sonth-West Georgia plant more corn than they h ’ve produced for the last few years the day is not fur distant when the * pro vision merchants and capitalists will be tho landholders, and those who now own them their tenants We would say more to our “erring brothers, ” but they have been too often warned of their fate : Verbum Sat Samentl TELEGRAPHIC.

Death ov Another Old Citizen.—Mr. Leroy Napier, one of Macon’s oldest, and before the war, one of her wealthiest citizens, died yesterday morning after a brief illness, at his resilience in Yineville, in ihe 77th year of his age. On the evening before, he had visited his place just below Macon, ou the river, and while there reclined himself fora short while on the ground, and soon afterwards he was taken with a chill and died iu about twelve honrs.

In this convention of har mony and dignity we have prepared for a certain victory. I never saw such a bright Democratic prospect before.

The delegates are scatter ing however—and Varney Gaskill and his companions are crawling ont of the holes in which they have been his for the past dsy or two. A Long or a Short War. Speculating on this subject, the New York Financial and Commercial Clirouide remarks : Probably the sympathies of a majority of tho American people aro on tins »ide of Prussia in the present conflict. As to the reasons for this couclitiou of publio opinion, or tho wisdom or justice of that opinion, it would lie useless st present to speak; but we think thtro is one error growing out of it which should be correc ted. We refer to the belief which appears to prevail quite generally that because the Pros* Mans have gained the first battle tho war is likely to be short. First. It looks to ne very improbable that France will make a humiliating peace—or, in other words, will consent to a close of tho war which rob* it of a foot of territory until it is uesr exhaustion. Tho North-German Confederation ia, to be sure, rich ia all tho elo- euts that constitute vast national strength; it it ought to be remembered that France, also, is an empire of great resontco. Uuited Germany, now as a consolidated nationality, is capable of doing and suffering great things for a great national object. Pride of race and iutel- lectusl achievements, the love of independence aud iuflacncc, and ambition of military prestige from the most renowned military to be i nxtion of the world, constitute a liigb aud strong inspiration for the Germans; bat France is bid and developed nation, with an intensely patriotic people, who cherish its traditions with a love that is almost a passion. These traditions they f.iel that they arc called upon to maintain in the present war. All that Germany is am. bitioua and determine to gain, therefore France is equally ambitious and determined to keep; and with resources of intelligence, ulrin wealth, and numbers so nearly balanced, it is altogether premature to predict, from one great battle, either the continuous «uv^ of Prussia or Ihe permanent detent France.

New York, August 14.—The war in Enrope continues to drain onr banks of specie, thereby decreasing their legal re serve, and forcing them to contract their loans. The total exports of specie for the pustfive weeks have been 822,530,215. Thun Europe has deprived us, in five weeks, of an amount nearly as great as that held by the New York banks at the the present time, to-wit: 824,101,320.— That is to say, a dram of specie for the next fire weeks like that of the last five will clear out every dollar of gold now held by the New York banks. The loss of specie by the banks enforces a contrac tion of loons on them precisely the as the losse of greenbacks or legal ten ders to a similar amount The banks reckon specie in their legal reserve the same os so many greenbacks. Tho loss of specio by our banks is therefore the same as the loss of legal tenders to them so far as the contnition of bank loans is concerned.
