gitlmtowt gisjjatdt. TUESDAY OCTOBER 1, 18G7. THE CIRCULATION OF THE "DISPATCH" IS LARGER THAN THE COMBINED CIRCULATION OF ALL THE CTIIER DAILY NEWSPAPERS OF THIS CITY. General Stone's Case. We give place to the letter of General Stone, who is now a citizen of Virginia, that our people may realize the malignity, wickedness, and diabolical hypocrisy of the Radical party, and to assist in acquainting posterity with the same facts. If, says the National Intelligencer, a list were to be made of citizens who were subjected to military imprisonment without cause, some of whom died, or whose healths were permanently impaired, it would be fearful to contemplate. The Boston Post, in giving place to the letter of General Stone, speaks as follows: The letter from General Charles P. Stone will escape no reader's careful perusal. No fuller commentary can be furnished on the malignant cowardice which was the inspiring motive in this remarkable case. Had it occurred in Italy the press of a "liberty-loving" party would have rung with terrillc denunciations of such llagrnnt, inhuman, and detesiible abuse of power. But occurring in this free country, and the sufferer being nothing more than a brave and self-sacrificing soldier of the Union, it challenges no response of sympathy or indignation from men whose patriotism is limited to factitious ambition, and v. hose sense of humanity is a mere breaking out on the lips. The part played by Mr. Sumner in this historic transaction no man will envy. It is written down past erasure. No pen may smooth away the horrid imputations which so plainly lie upon his conduct. It was a deed of mystery and silence, to be sure; but the fact that no words were used in the doing of it connects the doer and his action more closely than even an open proclamation could have done. There was the speech in the Senate, supporting the letters to subordinate officers ; here is the letter of General Stone?a bold, frank, soldierly letter?in response to that speech; and the shameful incarceration, into whose rayless gloom no light penetrated for a full year, and back to whose dead silence all uttered voices of appeal fell in cruel mockery, followed close after. There is no room for conjecture in a case of this kind. The deed and its author are coupled forever on the page of history. Let us hear 110 more from such tyrants as the authors ol this outrageous crime about Aiulersonville Pens and Libby Prisons, Dartmore Prison Ships, Marshalsea, the Black Hole, the horrors of the Middle Passage, or the Duke of Alva.' Death of a Great Pugilist.?The death of Izzv Lazarus is announced in the New York papers. He died at his eating and drinking house in that city on Thursday last. He was an Englishman, and hiul won, in his prime, groat distinction in the prize ring. He was fifty-five years old when he died. His weight in his fighting day was only 130 pounds. "When he died he weighed 800 pounds. Ilis great achievements wero in England. He whs the son of an Israelite, and living in Petticoat Lane, London, was called the "pet" of that street, from his pluck and skill in the art ol self-defence. His first great fight was with an Irishman named Flora McCarthy, in which, though powerfully punished, he triumphed after a fight of over an hour. This gave him great fame. He won afterwards several lights with very famous pugilists, and was beaten in two. He defeated Tom Mai.ev, and then had only one man between him and the championship?viz., Owen Swift. Alight between them was made up, and occurred in IS.17. It was one of the most stoutly contested that ever occurred in England?going through 103 rounds, and lasting nearly live hours. Every device and dodge known to the ring was resorted to to worry Izzv out, and at last his adversaries succeeded. He became disgusted from this unfairness, and retired from the life in the ring. He was one of the most distinguished of the profession. He came to this country in 1S53.' He lived first in New lorlc, then Buffalo, then New York again. He has followed the business of keeping a public house, which was a resort for the "fancy," who cultivated his acquairttance and consulted him about their matters. That distinguished gentleman Mr. Mokrissey, who, by a "great moral combination," has been sent to Congress from New York city, was a most intimate friend of LazaiH's. To bis latest days of locomotion Lazarus displayed deep interest in all "milling operations," and never failed to see a fight when within reach of linn.

A Cloud Specimen of the Kcductio ml Altsiirdum. From the Now York World. CONSEQ0KXCES OF FREE TRADE. That free trade is a disastrous policy, and [ cannot be otherwise, is proved by the miserable condition of the people of these United States under the Tnion which binds them to- ! getlier. If there were no Union, each State would be free to enact such laws as it might deem expedient for the protection of its own industry by laying a tariff on the products of every other State, precisely as the general Government now does with reference to the products of foreign countries. If there were no union, the New England and Eastern States could levy tariirs upon Western wheat, corn, beef, pork, and other staples, and by making the rates high enough, induce the resident farmers to produce these things at home, sustaining their own people, and not relying for these necessaries of life upon the pauper labor of the West. The western States, in their tu^n, could also levy tariffs upon Eastern cotton'and woollen cloth, boots, shoes, hats, tools, and yankee notions generally, and by making the rates high enough, promote the production of these things among themselves, and not rely upon the pauper labor of the East. The effect, also, would necessarily be a constant How of gold from every State to every other State, because every government that adequately protects its own labor against the labor of other countries is sure to have a How of gold into it. Another advantage resulting from there never having been a union of the States would have been the large number of custom-house officers and other olflcials (almost without number) who could have been furnished with offices upon fat salaries. These blessings, however, are all prevented by the National Government, which is clearly chargeable with the nnhappy and impoverishing consequences resulting from the free trade between the States. For one, 1 must ever protest, in the interest of humanity, against any further extension of our territory. So long as we can prevent a union with the British possessions on the north, so long each party can grow rich by enacting stringent tariff laws against the other, and by that other magical panacea, j "importinggold" from each other; but let j us once be united, and the people on both sides must inevitably be impoverished. In these changing times is it not possible to go back to true principles, and permit each State, each county, each town, to protect itself against the pauper labor of every other ? Perhaps Mr. Greeley or Mr. Carey can point the way. Protectionist. 1Sexo Purl-, September 9. Dissolution of partners hip.

A Sick Max Drowned.?The body of a ?white man was found floating in the dock at the foot of Eighteenth street on Saturday night. No inquest was held, but it was ascertained that the drowned man was named Lewis Evans. The deceased came to town on Saturday evening, and went to the house or his father, who resides on an alley on Third between Franklin and Grace streets. He was quite unwell, and evidently delirious. His father, fearing that his landlord would object to his entertaining him, says that he took him ont on the street early on Saturday night, supposing that he would go over to the house of his wife, in another part of the city. Nothing further was heard of the deceased until his body was found. Captain Anderson and others heard Lewis fall in the water, and attempted to save him from his watery grave, but when the body was recovered life was extinct. . , . ? Mr. Evans was a man of good character, and had many friends. The body was claimed and buried by the relatives of the deceased. The Tioer Amoxo the Colored Folks.?On Saturday last a colored man John lteed was arrested on the complaint of Men Scott, a prominent Radical darky, who charged Reed with attempting to pass upon him a counterfeit fifty-dollar treasury note The case was called yesterday, and Reed made a statement to the Mayor, which, if true, would lead to the belief that the "shoe is on the other foot." , , ? . Reed is from Washington, where ho learned to play at the aristocratic game of faro, although he never entered much into the "science" of the amusement. "V isitingKicnmond, he was induced to enter a gaming s. - loon, kept, as he says, over Brooks s stable, on Frankiin street. A white man and several negroes, including Ben Scott, wore engaged in a conflict with " the tiger " and Reed joined the party, finding himself in a martei jously short time the loser of fifteen or twenty dollars. He then drew out a fifty-dollar note, which he supposed to be genuine, and desirei that it should be changed. The banker sent a bystander out ostensibly for the purpose of changing it, but the prolonged absence of the messenger led Reed to suspect foul play. At length, when his patience was well nigh exhausted, a man entered the room, and, rapping on the table, adv,sed th company to scatter, telling Reed that he had better " skedaddle," as that note was probably a bad one. Going down stairs, the Washington darky found Ben Scott, who had hpori sent to cUanfcC the note, lotifing ?.it tlie foot of the Steps, and demanded to know why he did not come back with the money. Ben replied that it was a counterfeit note, and that he had left it in the ollice of the Exchange Hotel; whereupon Reed insisted upon looking it up. Upon inquiry, it was ascertained that no such note had been offered at that Counter nor to the clerk of the Ballard House. Reed then went to look for a policeman, in order to invade " the jungle," but before getting his warrant, was hiinself arrested on Scott. s cornplaint, and committed to the cage. He told the Mayor that he had never seen the note (a palpable counterfeit) exhibited 111 court until ihat moment. ' A witness fur the Commonwealth being unavoidably absent, the case wu~ continued, and will be heard to-day. Cruelty to Animals?*V\ illiam Ford, of Henrico county, was brought before the Mavor yesterday on a charge of unmercifully beating his mule. It was proved that the accused, being observed by Juslice Higgms, was ordered to desist; whereupon he made use of the most insulting and disrespectful language to the magistrate. On his arraignment, Ford plead ignorance of the law concerning cruelty to animals and of the position of Mr. Higgins, which he was informed was no palliation lor the offence. He was lined *U0 and required to give security to keep the peace. Perhaps ft is not generally known to the marketmen and others who are in the habit of indulging in the pastime of cruelly beating their mules and horses that the ollence is punishable by a line not exceeding Jiue huiuirta !/?u?r*. As the Mayor justly remarked to Mr. Ford, the city is not a proper place to break unruly animals. Ikon Thieves.?John Reardon was bronght before the Mayor yesterday, charged with having in his possession -loo i?ounds of iron stolen from Dr. J. L. Archer. l>r Archer identified the iron in question as his property, and Reardon claimed to have bought it from John Clark, George Dickinson, and Julius Carr, three negroes, who were brought into court at his suggestion, witnesses were introduced to prove that certain negroes were seen weighing iron on tlie premises of the accused ; but tlie evidence did not conclusively establish their identity with he bovs named above. Policeman Miouk testified that Reardon manifested no desire to evade the search-warrant, and did all in his power to assist in the arrest of the negroes. All the parties were sent to the Hustings Court for trial.

Military Personals.?General Schofleld has been qnite sick, but is now pronounced convalescent. Colonel J. A. Bates, who has recently returned l'roni Europe, and reached this city on Friday last, has been ordered to relieve Major J It.

Registration?Final Revisiox.?In compliance with the requirements of the supplemental reconstruction act, General Scholield has ordered that the books of registration be opened for dual revision on the sth instant, and for live days thereafter. A last opportunity will thus be afforded for our citizens to become qualified voters, and any names proven to have been illegally registered will at the same time be erased.

REPUBLICAN WARD MfETINGH. ORGANIZING FOR THE CAMPAIGN. Strange Proceedings. Pursuant to notices published yesterday, meetings of the Republicans of this city were heid in different wards last night, the proceedings of which will be found below. The object of the meetings, as stated in the call Signed "Many Republican Citizens'was to Effect a permanent organization of the Republican party In the different wards of the city: JEFFERSON ANT) FOURTH WARD3. Seventv-flve or one hundred persons were promptly in attendance at Old Market Hall, butit was evident that the work was not to he ocacefully accomplished. Few of the gentlemen who had beeh expected were there; several of the most radical men in the city were moving about among the colored men and conversing in low tones, and for some time no one could be induced to take the chair. A t length the meeting was called to order by Mr William A. Parsons. Colonel H. S. Mer3il" arose and stated that as few persons seemed to know the object of tho call, he wonld like some one of the Man) C'tidens who signed it to announce what was their design. No one replying, the Colonel, f?r the sake of doing the business in order, moied that Mr. Benjamin Bragg take the chair and Mr W. A. Parsons act as secretary. After some little misunderstanding as to who Mr. B. was, the motion was carried. The Chairman, taking his seat, stated th^t, being himself ignorant of the design ofthe gathering, he would thank some gentleman better informed to enlighten him. William R. Tall sprang to the floor, and in a very excited manner, and with a voice elevated* to its highest key, exclaimed " Mr. President ! " Mr. Tall had the floor. Mr. Tall: There are many Republicans present here to-night, and so far as I can see, not one of 'em knows anything about what the) have come for. Now, we want to know?these loyal men want to know?what did you call us here for ? What do yon propose to do ! Mr. President, I ask again, what is the obJGThe Chair stated that perhaps If the gentleman would yield the floor he might receive the desired information; but such did not seem to be the design of the anxious inquirer, as he continued to declaim and gesticulate, completely drowning the feeble voice of the meek-mannered chairman. He continued: "In the xWio S'dion this morning the loyal men are warned against these little meetings, these cliques, and these caucuses. \\ e ain t going to take the bait." [No, no ! from a score of colored citizens.] I move, therefore, as nobody knows the object of this moeting, that it now adjourn sine die. Mr Parsons, the secretary, lmmediatel) arose and desired to "explain"; but Mr. o. A. Broekmeyer vociferously demanded the question, and a perfect chorus of "Question, uuestion!" resounded through the hall. Tall: Mr. President, you just put that question, as yon have been told. Broekmeyer, excitedly, approaching the Chair, roared "Question ! " The colored citizens, crowding around, in deep bass, repeated the crv; and so great was the confusion that the Chairman's calls to order conld scarcely be heard at the reporters' table, only three or four feet distant. In spite of all, Mr. 1 arsons insisted upon his right to a word of explauaThe President: Gentlemen, if you think I came hore to preside over a parcel of jackimtn you are very much mistaken. Brockineyerc Don't make a mule of yourself, The President: I won't, sir. If tho motion to adjourn is not withdraw, I 11 put it. Tall: I don't withdrawn it. Put that quesUNothing else conld be done. The negroes, too well instructed by Hunnicutt and his minion Tall, would not be led by the "respectables" ; gallant Colonel Merrill looked on in silence ; Lien tenant Parsons yielded to the pressttre , Friend Gregory said never a word. Ihe Chairman at length, by a violent ellort, signified to the crowd that he was about to put the wished-for-question, and silence once wore ^IMequPStion was put, and a prolonged, emphatic, and stentorian aye was the response from a hundred pair of Radical lips. The meeting was adjourned, and with ?houts, clapping of hands, yells, hootings, I and peals of laughter, the audience rushed through the hall doors and down the stairway, leaving a small knot of the discomfited to " talk it over." . . , ? The meeting was called by the conservatue wing of the Republican party, and if their counsels had prevailed it would have been an orderly assemblage, hut the result was another triumph of the Hnnnieutt mob. MEETtN'i IN MADISON WARD. Pursuant to a public call, a meeting was held last night at the High School, Navy Hill, of the Republicans of Madison Ward tor party organization. .At the hour appointed, Rev. R?M Manlycalled the meeting to order; and on motion, Mr. II. G. Bond was appointed chairman, and John Oliver (colored) secretary, A committee of Rev. It. M. Manly, 11. L. Pelou/e, and Mathew Hopes (colored), was appointed to nominate a Ward Executive Committee. . , During the absence of the committee United States District Attorney Chandler was invited to address the meeting, but excused himself on account of indisposition. The committee to nominate an executive committee reported the following names, which were, on motion, confirmed?viz., Andrew Washburne, Fields Cook (colored), H. <r. Bond, J. W. Hunnicutt, Albert R. Brooks (colored), H. L. Wigand, G. S. Richards. Mr. Washburne offered the following resolution ; which was adopted: " Rtsolvtil, That a committee of nine be appointed to meet Republican committees troin other wards for the purpose of perfecting the organization of the Republican party in this UOn motion of H. L. Wigand, " Resolved, That vacancies occurring in tne executive committee bu filled by the remaining members." It was resolved that the above-named executive committee and A. Davidson and Joseph Cox (colored) compose the conference committee of nine. The meeting then adjourned.

MONROE AND FIFTH WARDS. About one hnndred white and colored persons assembled in Dill's bakery last night in response to a call of " Many Republican Citizens " for the Republicans of the above wards to meet to perfect a permanent organization. At S o'clock Captain Roach called the meeting to order, and, on motion of Joseph Cox, he was elected chairman. Captain Roach, on taking the chair, thanked the audience for the honor conferred upon him, and advised them to send two colored and three white men fo the Convention, and to be sure that they were of the right stripe. The speaker, after some further remarks, in which he said he was in favor of having 60,000 of those who favored the rebellion disfranchised, took his seat. The Chair announced that nominations for permanent vice-presidents were in order; whereupon Joseph Cox, Peter V. Randolph, and Nelson Hamilton were nominated. Joseph Cox, colored, was then elected. A number of persons were then nominated for secretary, and Munford Patterson elected. Mr. W. H. Hovey, Rev. Mr. Stockwell, Joseph E. Farrar, and Dr. W. Q,. Mansfield, were nominated for the position of second vice-president. Dr. Mansfield withdrew his name. Rev. Mr. Stockwell was then elected. Messrs. Hovey and Hennessy were nominated for the third vice-president. Mr. Hennessy withdrew his name and Mr. Hovey was elected. Captain Underhlll and Mr. Hamilton were nominated for assistant secretary. Mr. Hamilton withdrew his name, and Captain Underbill was elected. On motion, the Chair was requested to appoint an executive committee. Cornelius Harris, colored, moved that the committee should consist of tan persons, exclusiveof theolllcers just elected. Carried. Some discussion here ensued as to whether the meeting was of both the Monroe and Fifth Wards, or only tof the first named, during which Cornelius Harris said that as the Fifth Ward had not waked up to its interests, he hoped it would be included and some life infused into it. Mr. Morrissey asked the Chair who had made the call. The Chair said that it had only seen the call in the Di#p<ttch. Sterliug Harris, colored, said that he did not know who had called the meeting; but it looked very much like it had been called by persons who were ashamed to sign their names to it, fearing that they would be sneered at. The speaker pitied such, and did not think them worthy the name of men, or worthy to be members of the Grand Republican party. Cornelius Harris, colored, said that it made no difference who called the meeting. It had convened, and for his part he wanted it to be enjoyed, and the most made of it. Loud calls were made for those who called the meeting to make themselves known. No response. Mr. Morrissey stated that there were agents now in the city hiring a id sending off colored men to Washington and North Carolina to get thera out of the way, and thereby lessen the vote of the Republican party in this city; and he was sorry to state there were colored men acting m agents.

At the conclusion of Mr. Morrissey s remarks the Chairman annonnced the following as the executive committee: J. E. Farrar (colored), C. L. Harris (colored), Washman, P. Greene (colored). J. Morrissey, W. ti. Mansfield, Peter V. Randolph (colored), Joseph M. Humphries, B. Boyd (colored), and John A. Fitchett. Washman. Mansfield, Randolph, and Humphries positively refused to serve, and the following were appointed to fill the vacancies : Rev. S. Jones (colored), John Freeman (colored), Hennessy, and T. Smith. Cornelius Harris then arose, and started to make an explanation of the charge of not beiug a Republican, and receiving a bribe of $100, on which charge he was examined, and then ejected fromthe position of secretaryship of I the Colored Political Aid Society, when he was interrputed by cries of "Hush," "Go on," "Stop your gab," &c. He then flew from the track on which he started, and commenced a harangue about confiscation and equal rights. . Joseph Cox, after Harris concluded his remarks, moved that the meeting appoint ten delegates to attend the mass convention to be held in the African church on the 14th of this month. After mnch discussion it was decided that [ the delegates should not be elected at this, but at a meeting to be held on Tuesday night next at S o'clock. The meeting then adjourned. Radicai, Gathering on the Socare?Hexxicctt a.vd Congressman Shanks.?About 500 colored men and women assembled on the Square yesterday afternoon in response to the announcement that a member of Congress would address the citizens of Richmond at that time and place. After a brief introductory speech from a Dr. Sterling, the Hon. Mr. Shanks spoke for a few moments from the portico, but only to excuse himself and to promise a speech to-morrow afternoon. The ubiquitous Mr. Hunnicutt then occupied the staud, and as some of his statements and vv ords of advice were rather remarkable, we devote a few paragraphs to a brief resume of the speech: He particularly advised the colored men of Richmond to beware of the "second issue" fli?v?A.0hn those who have.come in at the fictioo m hour to partake of the "loaves and fishes. He charged them also to beware of I men from the Zorth, even of those who had fought in the late war on the side of the Union and now showed the white feather of conservatism. These two classes are the worst enemies of the African race in Virginia. The outspoken rebel Is much more to be respected than these copperheads. Beware especially, said ho, of these policy co-operation men, who only wish once more to enslave you. He would speak a word about the proposed convention and the course which his hearers should pursue. Don't vote for any man who does not come out fairly and squarely in favor of the platform of the 19th of April. Don't vote for any man who does not come out in a crtrtl for that platform. Any man who hesitates to swallow this pill is not a Republican. Nome, too, will say they are in favor of suffrage. Don't be misled by this cnair. The colored man does not want impartial suffrage, for it may throw the government ol the Mate into the hands of a landed aristocracy. ISo man shall come into the proposed convention who is not an advocate of manhood suffrage. No other term will do. Again, in regard to free schools, it is not sufficient that a man shall declare himself for them but he must bo willing to sustain measures for their support. And how is this to bo done? By taxing the property in the State. liy taking the tax from a mans head and putting it on his land, his horses, and 5"*0*?- J? this nin?y 11 r'ch man will tindoubted ly object; but we will Insist upon it It Hunnicutt goes into that Convention?as ne will, if he feels inclined?ho will carry his point, though it tukes three months, or six months, or he will break the whole (hino an If he does not go, ho will decline a nomination liimse?f th? most r:u,'L'u' mtin who presents llie work to be done by the Convention is no slight one, whatever milk-and-water men say to the contrary.
