A visit to sereral of our banks and spe cial inquiries addressod to cashiers and presidents, reveals the pleasing fact that thure has been no run whatever upon any of them, hut on the contrary, in some in stances the deposits up to noon were considerably greater than the checks, and they were all, as to assets, never stronger and mart perfectly solvent. A better feel' ng in all circles, too, will prevail when the fact becomes more cer tain and .latent to observation, that the South u only affe*’ti*d sympalKetic'iQy by the New York financial crash. In reality, her condition was worse of a few months fcinoe, when po many millions were sunk upon cotton futures. At present, everything in the future is hopeful and full of promise. Of bread, there will be a greater abundance than at any period since the war. The‘crops of rice, sugar cane, potatoes, hay *.nd peas are heavy without precedent. Our mer chants are well provided with goods, either paid ior, or bought' 4> 9ft day* or six m^ntlw’ credit Tlu,*re has'lieettSui entire aht»**mx* of all speculation in stocks and railroad securities, and we have the whole crop of cotton, worth nedrly f 200,' 000,000 and coming rapidly forward, to meet al 1 maturing obligations. What bet ter showing could he asked for? True, the yield in cotton will be dimin ished to some extent by the worm, rust and other causes, bnt the crop will be fully equal to that of last year, and a larger volume might have served to de press prices still further, without any ad- , ditional profit to the producer. With such a condition of things generally, and the merchants of our own city sound and staunch as the nock of Gibraltar, the maintenance of confidence ouly (and there is really nothing to dt «t irb It i is necessary to assure perfect mm i*M financial relief in a brief period. So* * * the cloud will be lifted from the great metropolis of the UAtion. and pn fie ruip* of the stock gam J ding e- ta! d inh men ts which have been unmasked,'hd lmve succumbed to the late )iri!Mure, t. :ulr will revive and resume its legitimate channels, and prosperity again crown every branch of industry. As sure os the needle points to the pole or water will find it* level, money and capital must ere long flow to the South, to be ex changed for her indispensable staple— that great regulator of all values, the meantime, let prudence, forbearance and economy be the watchwords of our people. Latex —Our night dispatches announce the suspension of all the Augusta bank‘d save the First National. This in true also of those in New Orleans for the period of thirty days. It is more than probable that this wholesale measure was resolved upon in these cities, to save the credit perhaps of one or two institutions only, which were unable to bold out. One bank in Atlanta also (a small one) has suspended. In Savannah two of the banka have had Iwvj runs upon fiwsi, kst so far there have been no suspensions. Memphis re ports two suspensions. In New York up to 3 o’clock r. k. yes terday. the feeling was decidedly bitter. Government refuses to do anything further for tho relief of the financial situation, and will not touch the reserve of $-U,000,000 in the Treasury. It is churned the suspensions in the South are really no indication of weakness on the part of the banks, but are merely pruden tial and precautionary. They all have ample assets, but the scarcity of currency is tho trouble. In Charleston there has been no run on the banks, or suspensions. . For.the present, there is a general THB GEORGIA PHK88. block and standstill in tho cotton busi ness, and trade, of course, sympathises with tho condition of things. About 80 or 100 bales, however, changed hands in Macon yesterday. On the whole, tho prospects of our city are encouraging, and her banking institutions as stable as any in the land. flow Small Grain* •• The prisongeneral disturbance in financial affairs, is another admonition to the fanner that he can, and ought to be, almost wholly independent within him self. The merchant, mechanic, banker, and the representatives of all tho other trades and professions, are forced to buy at any figure, every, article that enters into tho consumption of the household. Hence, fluctuations in stock, business panics, and the mutations of commerce, all affect most sensibly the purse and prospect* of uon-producers. But the U nant of his own broad lands, with the exercise of proper attention and industry, hr this favored dhnate, may raise all the necessaries, and many of tho luxuries, of lift*. Sugar, syrup, lard, bacon, mutton, poultry, butter, rice, flour, and vegetables in any variety, are all within his roach. If tho accursed lust for cotton, and cot ton only, could be banished, and a diver sity of crops introduced, including the culture of fruit, and the grape for wine, the country would be vastly more inde pendent and happy. But the special object of this article, is to urge upon our planting friends the importance of putting in overwhelming crops of oats, rye, Irheat and barley. It is true our corn crop is above an average, but it may be doubted whether the supply is sufficient for the wants of the State the ensuing year. And with the large falling off in the yield Of the crop in Illinois, and the other Western States, aad diminished acreage besides, those who are forced to buy may reasonably ex pect to pay long prices. Now, however, the remedy is in your own hands if you will but listen to reason and sow a large breadth of land in small grain—nop- rustiug oats especially. Put your rye aad barley in the ground immediately, and make both a fall and spring sowing of oats, so that one or the other may hit the seasons. With thu* precaution, next summer your stock can be subsisted with but lit tle draught upon the corn crib, and will be in far b*Uer condition than when feeding upon scanty rations of Western corn. This course will also be the saving of a mint of money to the oouatry, and may enable many to tide over the next cropping season, without placing their necks within the noose of a factor's lien. Engliih Pmm on the Financial satiation. The London Times if the 30th instant, speaking of our current financial excite- meat, says "that in view of the extraordi nary prosperity ai the United States and the high price of Government bonds, the present gits* ranet be regarded as simply an effort of the financial system to get rid of its dishonest elements.” The Daily TeUn-rapb. commenting on the same sub ject, says that “such local trouble seem to ti merely the rank outgrowth of an exuberant prosperity, and accessories to a progress which doe* not f«* * moment halt-’ 7 Three journals are "both of a tale” in their references to our solvency and resources.

We quote the following from the same paper: POST-Orncx AT- HcETTII.Lt, ALA BAMA.—Merchants giro as this story: Mr. T. C. Hill has been the postmaster at Hurtrille, Ala., for sereral years. The L-urt election rcultcd in a victory to the Radicals and since then that party has t ried to re-officer the State with men of their Stripe. At>out last April, the gen eral government appointed n negro, Treadwell, who had been elected a mem ber of the Legislature from Bussell coun ty, postmaster at Hurtrille, hut without giving Mr. Hill any notice of a change. Mr. Hill last week, having failed to pro cure any answers to three letters for ■tamps telegraphed to Washington, and received in reply the first intimation of his removal. Ho at once surrendered his office. He hat been serving since April, and will not get any pay. The fault is ■aid to be in the government. at Wash ington. Xo one in Hurtrille will rent Treadwell an office. He cannot give bond, and they are afraid of registered letters disappearing. The contequenoo is no mails are received or delivered at Hurtrille. 'Die people have to go to Ouerryton, five miles below. Hurtrille is located on the Mobile and Girard rail road. Foet Valley has received, up to date, 227 bales of this year’s cotton crop. Up to the same date last year, 478 bales had been received. Tn Athens Watchman learns that there has been much sickness in North east Georgia this season, especially in Franklin county, where several deaths from fever hare occurred in and near Carnesrille. The same disease has been very prevalent in other localities in that section and the adjacent counties in South Carolina. The same paper, whose editor has just been riding over the Air Line road to Greenville, S. C., says there is one trestle on that road between Belton and Tugalo river 1,100 feet long sod 105 feet high. On one section of the road a trestle al most as long and high, /ell before a train ever passed over it. There were .900,000 foet of lumber in it. Mb. N. P. Wxldos, of Harris county, carried a bale of cotton to Columbus, on Wednesday, that mu picked, ginned and packed in 1858. We find tho following in the Savannah Advertiser and Republican, of Wednes day : Bkutal Mukpeb—One Xeobo Shot Dead bt Anotbeb — A Woman the Cause.—Voetcrday afternoon, at a quar ter after 3 o'clock, the citizens in the neighborhood of the Central railroad de pot were startled by the loud report of a gun, evidently but a short distance off. A general ru'ah was made for the spot, where the report' wa* supposed to have come from, and reaching the entrance to what is known as Railroad street, a short street running from West Broad street along down by the Central railroad pas senger .shad, the cause of the firing wa* soon discovered. There lay a negro on the pavement, near the second or third gate to the shed, shot dead, a large pool of warm blood surrounding his head and still oozing from the wounds. In a very few minute* the street where the dead body lay, and also West Qroedstreet,in the neighborhood of River street, was Crowded with people.white and black,old and young, all running over with anxiety to see and hear everything they could concern ing the affair. It was soon ascertained that the roan who had just been killed wa* named Stephney Williams, a negro about forty-four or forty-five years of age, in the employment at Hie time of Messrs. Moran A Rielly as a drayman, and the man who committed the deed was named Cyrus L. Brown, a negro tnirty years old, in the employment of Capt. H. J. Dick erson. engaged in loading and unloading vessels under the bluff. As soon as he had committed the awful deed'he was captured by Mr. William Otter man, to whom he readily surrendered himself, and hv whom he was subsequently turned over to policemen M. N. Barry, W. L. O'Connor and A.' E. Hodges, who were on the ground a very few' minutes after the report of the gun was heard. As soon as possible a reporter of this paper repaired to the scene of the tragedy and obtained the following information in regard to the killing: The negro Stephney Williams had been far some time having criminal intercourse with the - wife of Cyrus Brown, who had suspected the par ties from the conduct of both Wil liams and his (Brown’s) wife. He accordingly put himself in position to satisfy his mind upon the subject, and ascertain whether his suspicions were correct and well founded. With the aid of a friend he watched them closely, and on Monday night he discovered that his suspicions were correct. His wife and Williams were seen together in a patch of woods back of Arkwright’s factory. Re turning to his house he armed himself with a knife and stick, and calling on Williams after his return home, he in formed him of Us discovery, and notified bi-n that he would give him until the next (yesterday) morning to leave the city, and that he should also curry the woman array with him. That if he did not comply with his demand he would kill him on sight. Williams, as the fatal result shows, did not pay any attention to the threat, or at least failed to comply with the demands of Brown, who, as soon as he bee l ms aware of the fact, armed himself with s mosket, which he loaded with a heavy charge of buckshot, and went in search of Williams. He found him on his dray, near the corner of West Broad and Railroad streets. When Williams saw Brown coming to wards him with a gun. he attempted to get oet of his way, but he was already upon him, and, leveling' the gun at his head, he fixed when he was within about twenty puces of him. three or four of the buckshot mitering the forehead and face of Willis ms. who fell dead at the report. Brown unemj to have been very much ex cited aad exasperated at the time ha I committed the act, for the discharge which killed Williams came very near killing two little white boys, who were sitting in a wagon just beyond. One of the shot passed through the fleshy part of the left arm of Andrew Culver, the boy in charge of the s-agna. a very painful, though net dangerous mound. Had this shot passed a tew inches further to the left of its oeupus it would have entered the boy's breast and kilted him. The little boy was home immediately and his wound at tended to. About two months ago. Dr. A- W. Baughman, of Atiante, Surged wNbrons- —isrmg a rape upon tbs person of Miss mu. Irwin, of that place, was arrested.

The ap plication of the defendant is for a writ of error. It is made to the United States Supreme Court, alleging that the Supe rior and Supreme Courts of the State of Georgia erred in holding that the present jury law of the State, and the law allow ing a oounter-showing to a motion for a ooutinuamoe in a criminal case, sad the use of affidavits was constitutional. In other words, the defendant insists that he has the right to be confronted with the witnesses giving evidence against him.and to select his jury according to the form and practice of the oonpaon law. Col. Hawkins seems confident of the ground he is standing upon, aad has already made applicatkmflor a writ of arbor to the United States Supreme Bench. The Atlanta Constitution, of yester day,* says: Railxoas Smash-up.—The up freight train on the Western and Atlantic rail road ran off hear Big Shanty yesterday morning, completely wrecking ten or eleven freight can, and so covering the track with tho dchria as to necessitate the transfer of passengers.

Benson, of Upeon county, were ■trick on down with fewer, aad a few days after two more were attacked with the same complaint. On Wednesday, 17th instant, his son Lemuel, aged about 19 years, died, and was interred in our city cemetery on Thursday. On Sabbath last the eldest son, Jamas, aged 25 yean, died, and was buried by the side of his brother on Monday. The remainder of those who were ill are still seriously indisposed, and bnt little hope is entertained of their re covery. Grant as s Gentleman. We find the following in the Cincinnati Commercial: The Xcw Tork Sun relates an anecdote of President Grant at Long Branch, which we reproduce in another' column and propose to correct in this. The Sun’s story is s little crooked, and *e hope to give the straight of it. The President WAS dining at Drexel's cottage. Among the guests wss a young man from Phila delphia, recently returned from Europe. He was a pleasant talker, and related a good deal of his experience abroad, dwell ing especially upon England. Perhaps the young man had heard so much about “Cmarism” that it occurred to him that the President had mooaichial tendencies. At any rate, he spoke in very high term* of the English form of government, and pointed out the features in which it was more liberal than our Republican form, expressing also, confidence in it* great stability. The American Eagle on the bosom of the President was aroused and screamed, so to speak. It is related that he interrupted the talker by saying: “As you hold such sentiments, I think you should become a British subject. I don't think you have any business in this country.’’ A melancholy pause' in'the con versation succeeded this practical remark. In the language of the p.»et. “Silence, like a poultice, came to heal the blowg of sound.” Two or three dismal attempts were made to restore tho conversation, but they were feeble, and very soon faded. The dinner closed with a coolness. As soon as the host could speak alone with his distinguished guest, the President of the United States, he approached him, and said that the young man from Philadelphia had certainly not intended to offend him, and merely meant to do the Engli-h justice, without disparagement of his own country. But the wrath of the President swelled within him. and he declared that he had made np his mind not to hear any more of that sort of talk without rebuking it. There had been too much of that sort of thing in this country, anyhow. Without knowing the result of this intercession for peace and good will among men, the un fortunate Philadelphian sought the Presi dent and desired to say that however fairly his remarks at the table might be open to criticism, he begged to be under stood not to mean any disparagement of the United States or disoourtesT toward the Chief Magistrate. The President stared at him with a free •>« i or' l.le and imperturable a* tbit o' ' fir * ’a poker player, and V IJ.j-'v t\o v '.» did n desire to talk to himuny more then, or Tbe Ames and. Alcorn Figlit in Mississippi. After a silence of some weeks, Mr. H. V. Redfield. the- well known correspon dent of the Cincinnati Commercial, turns np at Meridian,'Mississippi, whence he writes as follows concerning the fight be tween Ames and Alcorn for the Governor ship of that unhappy commonwealth : As the Meridian Convention adjourned without making a nomination, the Demo cratic strength wiil go* to Alcorn. He will also pick up a few Republicans, and have_a good ahow of enthusiasm an J sup. port all around, but I do not believe he will 1>e elected. Hq is a heavy man on the stump, and can tear Ames to pfrcci; but when the final count comes it will be found, that Ames has most votes. It mat ters-not if Ames receives not a white vote in the State, the negroes will elect him. They regard him as the regular nominee and a "head Grant man,” and that is enongb. Alcorn has killed himcclf with the negroes by bidding for the white vote. The blacks will not support a ticket that the whites support. They never have done it and never will. To *ee Sonthern BY TELEGRAPH. DAY DISPATCHES. From New York—Tke Sltaatfoi Re- irarded More Hopeful. New Yore, September 25.— says he ha* exhausted hi* orders to purchase bonds, and will wait orders. A portion of the registered European mail per City of Montreal was badly dam aged by the breaking of a bottle of iodine which escaped the notice of the mailing clerk. A large number of letters con- tainiping.check3, bonds, etc., were stained a deep brown and the writing rendered unintelligible. '■'The dry goods merchants report trade dull but sound. The rumors of failures among them are groundless. The morning journals taka a very hopeful view of the financial situation this morning, and is the general im pression that the panic is oxer. The members of the Jay Cooke firm meet daily, and have decided not to sac rifice their securities in order to meet their obligations, but will wait the res toration of public confidence. Mr. Howes, white men supportingaliek^nfa warfling "6t Howes & Macy, says they have the best tothem tugoagainstif; I! the RepuLliren^ -of securities, but don’t propose to sacri- had nominated Alcorn, and Ames had run fice them at current rates. aa an independent candidate, supported by the whites, he would have got no ne gro votes. The negroes will not vote with fixe whites. This shows a lamentable want of sense on their port and a lament able state of affairs generally,-but there is no remedy. During this generation, in the cotton States, race lines wifi be party lines. Alcorn looks to the negroes for support, and counts largely upon his rec ord to secure their votes, but he will be disappointed. The 1 negroes follow the regular organization, no matter who leads it. The Republican party could not put up a man so objectionable that the ne groes would not vote for him. This is not an inviting picture I know, but it is true. The negroes of the cotton States are like sheep; they all go in one direc tion. It is a part of their creed not to support a man that the whites support, and they will not do it. The whites may split up and divide out on questions, but toe negroes are solid. This,expat black man’s party of Mississippi* is dangerous- dangerous because it cannot be divided, and because one man can do the thinking for fifty thousand. A white man’s party is bad enough, but not so dangerous as a black man’s party, for you cannot mold the whites into a solid mass and keep them in line—a chain-gang. They do their own thinking, divide out, change their opinions now and then. A negro never changes his politics, but at all times faithfully follows the Radical bell wether. r u .* kill AT f V.

Had Been Shaky Some Time. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Commensal reys Jay Cooke’s failure did not surprise some people of that city, who bad watched his career closely for several years. The other hanking house* at Washington have been suspicious as to his r solvency some time, and Bigg’s bank, for one, made it % rule never to hold a cheek on Cooke even tor an hour. They were collected right away. In short, adds' the corre spondent; ** there is little excuse for any body of ordinary sagacity losing money with the Cookes. Mr. Knight, a director of the Pennsylvania railroad, told me three months ago that Jay Cooke was pfirr**g over the critical months of his career, aad that there was the barest possibility of his survival, dependent wholly on the sale of his railroad bonds in Europe. Mr. Hamilton G. Font, a banker of Washington, told me only a fortnight ago that Jay Cooke had not a cent since the war, that in a ■ingle operation of Cooke in New York, namely, Mariposa stock, the firm had lost seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars, which frightened E. W. Clarke out of tbe firUT; and it is well known that Governor wOaoke’s mamdivn at Georgetown has stopped at the founda tion ever since the same event. Mr. Cooke’s villa property is of an extensive character, ana at a time like the present would not bring above half a million deQara. although ho has upwards of one thousand acre* in it.

We apj>end several extracts: Amidst the vast throng which filled the Fifth Avenue Hotel there was one man who attracted unusual attention. Men followed him wherever he went, and no sooner did he ^pen -liis - mouth .to. speak than eager listeners made’ready to catch every word. It was Jay Gould. The writer had on interview with him. He thought that prompt and immediate ac tion was required of the Government. “What policy would, in your opinion, tend to restore confidence and stay tbe crisis V the writer asked. "There are so many plans that have been suggested to the President that it is extremely difficult to say which is the better' one*. - Thp-'* general impression seems to be that the Government should call upon its reserve fund. Others main tain different-theories.” . , . £ “Do vo i think .that.this would navejs tendon* ' to settle matters ?** “I think it would. *It would certainly tend to restore confidence amopg the peo ple, and would aho put considerable ^ money info circulation.!’^ »’ - • "Are you of the opinio n-thnt the ■closing of of the Stock Exchange was necessary?” ** Undoubtedly it was a wise policy. I have no doubt it prevented many addi tional failures." •'Do you think t&ft there is any abso lute'necessity for tlie govdramenl to’ in terfere ?” ** I think that it will be the only means to prevent the spread of the crisis. I understand that the President is averse to •using the reserve - fund, but in- my opinion it will be the most effective measure.’* * - " Mr. Gould, vhat dp you think is the^ cause*of the present’monetary’ crisis"?” *' "It is due to many causes. In tho first place, men have made heavy advances for the construction of roads that can never pay a cent in return. It is likewise due to the lack of confidence among the people on the street. And then again it undoubtedly originated from the had fi nancial management of the Government.” "In what respect has the financial pol icy of the Administration been bad ?” “In every respect. Every move of the Government shows its utter ignorance of financial matters, and tbe Administration as a whole lacks financial ability.

Mere /abh ducat—if say one is willing to be taught** The Banking System—Its Uses and Conveniences. In an article on the monetary situation, a New York exchange says: ‘‘From the very nature of banking, the banks are always exposed to a danger re sulting from the fears or caprices of their depositors. In the double relation of debtor and creditor in.which banks stand to'the' commubitV, the terms are, In ohb respect, very unequal. As debtors they are under ■'.constant' obligation to pay back the whole amount of their deposits on demand; whereas, on the other hand, as creditors they canoofcall in their loans until the notes of their customers mature at fixed future dates. When, therefore, any sudden alarm unsettles confidence sad gives a shock to credit, the stress of the crisis falls first upon the banks. But it must presently reach the community, because the ability of banks to lend de pends on their deposits, and when depos its are withdrawn or withheld the source of loans is dried up. One step more will bring us to the point to which these very elementary observa tions are directed. When, from distrust of the hanks, merchants withdraw or are upset. This is the point on which we desire to fasten attention, because no per son who does not appreciate it can hav^ a correct view of the disease, or of the adap tation of proposed remedies. The service rendered by the banking ovstem being a prodigious economy in the use of currency by the general substitution of checks for money in making payments, it follows that wheiLA panic uuae* jnerchtint^to go beck to the antiquated system of keeping their funds in dfoir^oss and making pavin** nts in actual inoDev, all that wonderful economy disappear* and the trading community (if bank deposits and payments by checks >'n' 7 y cease) would need many times as much money to transact the same amount of business. Indeed, in the present state of civilization, it would be impossible to get No Stock Board Yet* No stock board to-day. The following notice is on the door of the Sub-treasury: "Purchases of bonds at this office are for the present suspended.” In answer to queries, the Sub-treasurer states he cannot say whether any pur chases will be made to-day until advised from Washington.
