He told the people of th gallant con
duct of General Geary during the war,
and dwelt with considerable emphasis on
the timorous fpirit of Asa Packer, who
deserted his country for a Fojourn in
Europe, where he remained uutil the
danger was over.
In conclusion, ho urged the citizens of
Germantown to vote for Geary and Will

have fully aroused the Lvcpub,icaus to
the importance of the questions involved

.Tee.msev Doom isn't exaetlv "in the!
country" now, but he has been wasting
a large quantity of letter pair on his
"constituency," . telling them that all
who "desire to hunt the bonds will vote
for Simpson, Pollard," etc., and that
"MichtZuMitt ami R. G. Doom prefer
the real intercuts of the .county,; and
their children's to the honor of running
a party ticket." How is that, Jeemsey?
Are you consorting with the Democracy,
as usual? Jecmsey appears to have an
especial interest in this campaign. What
docs it mean ? He was never yet known
to come out of a convention satisfied
with its action when lie was not norni
nated to eonse office, and the fact that
he is Batisfied (or appears to lie) with
the ticket causes some people to have
queer tnouguts. ins support oi ire
ticket is doing it more damngi than all
else put together. H appears especially
favorable to Mr. Pollard's election, and
it is hurting Pollard's chancis wonder

Gkstlemen I sco an article iu the
Daily IIkuai.D of '"Oct. 7th lSG'j" which
contains two false statements in connec
tion with my niiue, which I desire to
correct. It has not been, nor is it now
my intention to enter into u newspaper
controversy with any gentleman oreet of
men, but silence cea-'cs to be a virtue
v.hin men will so persistently falsify
laets. and then publish them over their
own signatures. You have not stated
the facta in regard to the proceedings of
the Convention, at least whero my
name has been ued. I will now rtatc
tin, i, as they did actually occur. After
the election of tho Chairman and Secre
tary, Hon. P. L. Clapp said, in answer
to a question a-ked by Mr. Kirkpatritk.
as to what was before the Convention,
that "he presumed, that the appoint
ment of a Committee on credential- was
the first thing necessary to be dor:", so
as to enable tis to know who are
the Delegates." I immediately made
a motion that the Chairman
appoint a Committee of five
gentlemen upon credentials, and request
ed that no gentleman from 1 Matt-mouth
Precinct be named on the committee, as
there were two delegations from that
precinct claiming sr-ats in the conven
tion Mr. Mazwell then moved to
amend my motion by himself naming five
gentlemen I made objection to his na
ming the committee in l i thus virtually
chosing his own judges Mr. Maxwell
did not make the first motion -for a com
mittee oa creJentisds, but paid motion
was made by myself and he subsequently
offered th" amendment naming them
so inmdi fsr stu'tcmeiit No J.
You say "Wheeler, during the noue
and disturbance, moved that Clapp bo.
elected permr'.uont Chairman," Y heeler
tllil not nvihc the motion, Knd does not
know who did make the motion, but
such a motion was made by some gentle
man, and as neither the Chairman or
Secretary, put the motion, 1 after a lit
tle pit use (jot ty on a seat, announced
the motion, called for the ayes and nays,
and declared Mr. Clapp duly elected per
manent Chairman, as he was without
hardly a dissenting vote. Sojjmueh for
statement No. '2.
Gentlemen, now allow me to make a

a .-ummary of tho crop reports.
A summary is given showing tho mean
temperature and raia of the xeveral
States for July and August, as contrast
ed with thoso months last year. The
region mo:-t subject to drouth (bat
west of the Mississippi and Missouri
has had the most regular supply of rain,
and the valley of the former has had an
abundant of rainfall to its mouth, while
Alabama and Georgia have fmib-red frotu
drouth, and the Atlantic States in a still
higher degree, not only throughout the
tide-water region, but ia a large 'portion
of the Ea-torn States.. On the South
ern Atlantic seabord the heat has been
greater this year than in lfcGS, audtlie
rain-fall less. North and es-t of New
York the heat has been less, as also the
rdin-fJl. In the one case it wa.s toj liot
and in the other too cold for corn and all
other summer enps, which HiiTered ac
cordingly. While the drouth has pre
vailed oast of the Alleghauias, the groat
Mississippi bnsin had an unusual amount
of rain. West Virginia and Ohio alone,
of the central aera, liad h" ra;i:-lkli in
August than in 186S. Tho e(v.--ivc
iiiui.-ture of the Ftimmer is u.-taiued to
its clotje, especially m Wisconsin, Min
luvota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kan as and
Missouri. Both the e irly and 'Jie l itter
rains have been somewhat extraordinary
west of tho Missouri, yet the high ws:
pciature and deep thirsty soil of tleit
region have converted the visitation into
a blessing. The drouth of the i-eaboavd
has not been equaled ia many years.
The comparison between this year and
la-t rho'.vs that New England has had but
one-third as much rain in August of the
present year, New York a little more
than one-haif, New Jersey scarcely one
eight ; Pennsylvania one-sixth ; Mary-,
land one-ninth. Extracts from corres
pondents will .-how tho injurious eiTtct
of this excessive drouth on corn, cotton,
aul garden vegetable?.
( Vt The corn crop lias bet a the
pre;,- of numerous ills ia every sectiu'of
the country. The only Statoa that totv
show on average condition are Nebraska,
Kau.--as, Florida, Louisiana, Teias and
Arkansas. Hxeeanivc raics retarded
planting, and necessitated replanting in
the f pring throughout the West and
South." Cold, wet weather prt-reiitcd a
healthy vigorous growth in almost every
State, and in the season of caring and
maturing a serious drouth affected it en
the Atlantic coast, with iniurious hctt in
the South and unfavorable redaction of
temperature in the North. Ia deep soils,
naturally drained, the extreme moisture
of the West did no injury. In heavy cr
flat lands with clay or subsoil the dkma.ee
was great, in some cases resulting to total
failure. The loss as shown in the tsble
liua, Tennessee. Kentucky,, lijuots,
Mu-higan and Y isconsin ; from twenty
to thirty in New Haupshier, Connecti
cut, New Y'ork, New Jersey, Del v-arc,
Georgia, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa a 1 Min
nesota ; from ten to twenty in Miwi
chusctts and l'ennsylvaoia, and iroui
one to ten ier cent, in Rhode IsJand,
Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri cod
California. Unless the close of the sea
eon is very favorable, there taust be
1 50,000.000 bushels less than a full crop.
Cotton There will be a reduction in
the yield of cotton from the CaroLnas to
Alabama, and a material increase from
Mississippi to Texas. Georgia, Florida
and South Carolina have suffered most,
mainly from drouth in a few, loaliiiefl
from rust, the Caterpillar and boil-worua.
Our estimates makes the isicrea.se in
Mississippi, Lousian and Texas res
pectively, ten, twelve and fourteen per
cent. The probabilities at pre;ieu favor
a yield of 2,750,000 bales.
Wheat This crop, as a whole h lar
ger. The only States showing a de
crease are Illinois, Michigan, Jowa ajid
California. Soaie of it i9 inferior in qual
ity, but a considerable portion has been
injured by rains after harvest. A con
siderable jortion of the Western wheat
is of a good quality, and that of the
South is decidedly superior.
Fruits As a rule have yielded abund
antly ; apples in a less degree than oth
er species. New York, Pennsylvania,
West Virginia, Michigan and Illinois,
all apple regions, have nearly a full sup
ply: New England a material reduction.
Utock Hogs There in not only a re
duction in the number of stock hors, but
also in the condition. Missouri, Xau-as,
Nebraska, and Minnesota, rapidly
growing States, have made an increase
m liumoera as have some of tbe south
ern States. There is
crease, as. com pared ;with last year, of
five to ten per cent.
