ortlrliti Paper for the Government-
FRIDAY EVEN'G, APRIL 21, 1871.
We commend the following to the
thoughtful consideration of tho ruling
class of Richmond and Virginia at large.
It aught to be made a Sabbath lesson in
all the churches, committed to memory
and repeated daily for oue year by every
member of that class. It is the confession
of a conscience-stricken New Yorker, but
buUb this point in space precisely :
Let ua, then, praise what can be praised, and
blame what must properly be blamed. And
the blame Ilea not so much with the ignorance
and superstition that aro the occasion of our
perils, aa with the intelligent class that give
themselves up to despair, and behave in a cow
ardly and imbecile way. We need to have a
•harp, stern dealing with ourselves, who be.
leng to the better and right-thinking and edu
cated class 1 We neglect our duties, we cod
dle our private interests, we sacrifice the pub
lic to our personal comfort and profits, and we
allow our fears of consequences to stifle our
rebukes and to paralyze our reformatory or
ganizations. We are cowed by party tyraany.
We abuse by the wholesale and not discrimi-
We won't take the trouble to think
or speak definitely and to the point. It is the
better class that stands in the way of reform.
The Pittsburg Commercial has a talent
for parables, and indulges this pleasant
mode of teaching truth as follows :
At St. Paul's church, on Easter Sunday, a
little urchin sat in a pew next to a lady ele
gantly attired in costly silk. He was happy
In tbe possession of a gorgeously colored egg,
which be was toaaing in the air in high glee.
Tho lady eyed him suspiciously, fearing that
the new found treasure would slip out ot his
band and damage her apparel. Her feara were
but too fully realized. The urohin made a
bloody anatch at tbe egg, and miasing it, it fell
to the floor and broke. The contenta flew
around promiscuously, and a horrible atench
arose, and the boy peered down at hia broken
idol, and getting aanifl of the aroma, exclaim
ed, "nmph, it's wotten."
This is a parable. Tho lady was the
World. The little urchin was the Mobile
Register. Tbe colored egg was the Selma
speech of Jefferson Davis. The exclama
tion, "umph, it's wotten," was a pictorial
paraphrase of the Register's substitution of
ita declaration that the disapproval of that
speech by Northern Democratic journals
''neither hurt Davis nor helped the party,"
with the statement that "the South must
conform to tbe wishes and interests of the
Northern and Western wing. " We hardly
know which most to pity—the boy, the
lady, or tho egg.
There is no doubt that the late speech
of Senator Schurz on the San Domingo
project was a masterly effort. But whether
the following description of its effect upon
Senator Morton, from the Washington City
Capital, be strictly true, wo are inclined to
doubt. Says that journal:
There was nothing left, not even tbe potency
•f his dark and wrathful face, which baa
given the bubble ita tint. Crude, fat, unin
formed, ungracious, a mere frontier politician
with a blacksmith's face, he perished like a bat
upon the point of a scholar's blade, and so
goea down the man who waß maneuvering to
ruin Grant and then to succeed him.
"Bubbles. Bats. Blacksmiths." Wo
should call this a decided confusion of
metaphor. It is almost equal to Sir
Boyle Roche's masterpiece: "Mr. Speak
er," said that brilliant orator and wise
•tatesman, " I smell a rat; I see him
floating iv the air; but mark me, sir, I
•hall yet nip him in the bud."
A ooosk and a mule have struck up an at
tachment of a decidedly romantic character.
They tight for each other, and are conatantly
together. When the mule lies down, tbe
goose will sit down close beside him, and wait
until it gets up. When the mule is red corn
in the ear, he will fill bis mouth with shelled
corn and drop it where the goose can pick it
This is the most life-like and admirable
illustration of the relations existing be
tween Northern and Southern Democracy
that we have yet seen ; only we are not
quite settled in our own mind as to which
is the mule and which the goose.

Marriage in llioh Life.—The nup
tials of General Fitzhugh Lee aud Miss
Nellie Fowle, daughter of the late George
D. Fowle, were solemnized Wednesday
afternoon, at the residence of Captain P,
B. Hooe, on Washington street, Alexan
dria. Rev. James T. Johnston and Rev.
Mr. Norton, rector of St. Paul's church,
officiated. The guests comprised many of
the most distinguished officers of the late
army of Northern Virginia. Gen. Jubal
A. Early, General W. H. F. Lee, General
Lomax, General M. B. Young, of Georgia;
General M. D. Corse, Captain Haxall and
B. E. Lee, Jr., wero among those of Gen.
Lee's comrades who were present. It was
expected that ex-President Davis would
be present, but he did not arrive.

French Immigrants.—Tbe arrival of
over one hundred French soldiers at New
York, Tuesday, looks like the beginning of
■ movement towards French immigration,
which, it is to be hoped, will be well car
ried out. The unsettled condition of
France, the disorganized condition of the
country, and the poverty inevitable after
a disastrous war, are all cogent reasons
why Frenchmen thoukl seek a home in
the New World, particularly in tho South
ern States. Here they will find opportu
nities for the exercise of those talents
which, as a people, they are so well known
to possess, and, forming colonies, will bo
come good and useful citizens.

Elections is Former Times.—ln 188
Marcus Morton, Democrat, was chosen
Governor in Massachusetts, by one major
ity. Iv 1840 Edward Kent, a Whig, was
elected Governor in Maine by sixty-eight
rotes, over John Fairfield, Democrat. In
1844-Henry Clay, for President, carried
Tennessee by 113 votes, over James K.
Polk. In 1848 Secretary Ford beat John
Weller, Democrat, for Governor of Ohio,
by about 260 votes. In 1860 Horatio
Seymour lost the Governor's office iv New
York by some 250, and in 1864 he waa
beaten again by just about the same figure.
A. T. Stewart managed to get along,
with strict frugality, on $1,637,696 income
THE STATK JOURNAL.
Tbi State Journal enters upon a new ca
reer, under auspices which promise perma
nence and increaaed uaefulnesa.
Tbia paper will be Republican. The organ
of no wing or clique, it will aim to repreaent
the policy of the National party; to build up
a healthy National sentiment, and inspire love
of tho whole country.
It will not be the vehicle of personal detrac
tion, nor be used to get its pota into office, nor
to keep othera out. The aafety of all is in the
triumph of the cause ; and to aocure it, all
muat labor zealously and devotedly, and take
B chances in the general reault.
ming to treat every member of its own
party generously, it will be just to ita oppo
nents. It will discuss all queationa of public
interoatfairly and temperately. Assortingthe
right earnestly and resolutely, and bating no
El tittle of the truth which it ia called.to de
i, it will aim to "apeak the truth in love."
will commend genius, patriotism and vir
iverywhere, and be aa prompt to expose
jption and imbecility in ita own party aa
We ahall advooate ail measures to advance
the public good, originating in our own party
or outside. There are vital queationa enough
between us and the opposition without seeking
sauea whore all good men should stand on
lieving popular Education to be the one
crying want of our State and of the country,
we shall give large space to its advocacy. To
educate thoroughly all tbe children of tbe
State should be the supreme and paramount
work of legislation. To tbia aacred task we
consecrate our paper. We shall plead the
cause of the little ones who hare no voice;
and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of
Virginia in whatever can make her groat and
The financial condition of the country, and
especially of the South, will not be neglected.
We advocate a financial polioy which will

old prosperity. Wo are for the encourage

money absolutely safe and accessible to busi

In conclusion, we will say that we will unite
cordially and earnestly with men of all parties
to remove every obstacle to the moral, intel
lectual and phyaical progress of our State and
nation. There are thousands of noblo young
men and women in tbe State full of gram
capacity, now dormant and wasting. The ol
Commonwealth is founding the drum-beat to
duty. Let them shake oil' the night-mare o
conservatism and old traditions, and march
bravely to tho work of tbia now day. So shal

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL PLATFORM
Ihe National Republican party of the United
States, assembled iv National Convention in the cit;
of Chicago, on the 21st day of May, 1866, make tb
following declaration of principles:
1. Wo congratulate the country on the assured
■uccess of the reconstruction policy ot Congress, as
evinced by tho adoption, in the majority of the
States lately ia rebellion, of constitutions securing
equal civil and political rights to all; and it is the
duty of the Government to sustain those institution!
and to prevent the people of such States from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Congress of equal suffrage to
all loyal men at the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of gratitude, and of
justice, and must be maintained; while the question
of suffrage in all the ioyal States properly belongs
to the peoplo of those States.
3. We denounce all forms of repudiation aa a na
tional crime; and the national honor requires the
payment of the public indebtedness in the utter
most good faith to all creditors at home aud abroad,
not only according to letter, but the spirit of the
laws under which it was contracted.
4. It is due to tbe labor of the nation that taxa
tionshould be equalized,and roduced as rapidly as
the national faith will permit.
6. The national debt, contracted ai it has been tor
the preservation of the Union for all time to come,
should be extended over a fair period for redemption;
and it Is the doty of Congress to rednco the rate of
interest thereon, whenever it can be honeetly done.
6. That the best policy lo diminish our burden of
debt U to so improve our credit that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates of Interest than
we now pay, and must continue te pay so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
7. The Government of the United States should be
administered with the strictest ecouomy; and the
corruptions which have been bo shamefully nursed
and fostered by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi
8. We profoundly deplore the tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret tthv accession
to the Presidency of Andrew Johnson, who has acted
treacherously to tbe people who elected him and the
cause be was pledged to support; who hai usurped
high legislative and judicial functions; who has re
fused to execute the laws; who lias used his feigh
office to induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who bos employed his executive powers
to render Insecure tho property, the peace, liberty |
and life of the citizen ; who has abused tbe pardon- I
log power; who has denounced the national legiela- I
turo as unconstitutional; who has persistently and
corruptly resisted, by every meuns iv his power,
every proper attempt at the recoLstruction of the
Status lately in rebellion; who has perverted the
public patronage into an engine of wholesale cor
ruption ; and who has been justly impeached for
high crimes and uiipdt-meanore, and properly pro
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five
9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other Eu
ropean powers, that because a man is once a subject
he is always so, must be resisted at every hazard by
the United States, as a relic of feudal times, not au
thorized by the laws of rations, and at war with our
national honor and independence Naturalized cit
izens are entitled to protection in all their rights ot
cttizenship,-as though they were native-born; and
no citizen of the United States, native or natural
ized, must be liable to arrest and imprisonment by
any foreign power for acts dove or words spoken in
this country ; and, if so arrested and imprisoned, it
Is the duty or the Government to iuterfere iv bis be
10. Of all who were faithful in the trials of tbe
late war, there were none entitled to more especial
honor than the brave soldiers and seamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign and cruise, aud im
perilled their lives in the service of the country;
the bounties and peusions provided by the laws for
these brave defenders of the nation are obligations
never to be forgotten ; the widows and orphans of
the gallant dead are the wards of the peoplo—a sa
cred legacy bequeathed to the nation's protecting
11. Foreign immigration, which in the past has
added so much to the wealth, devtdopement, aud re
sources, aud increase of power to this republic, the
H-yliim of the oppressed of all nations, should be
fostered and encouraged by a liberal aud just policy.
lit!. This convention declares itself in MVinpathy
with alt oppressed peoples struggling for their rights.
|S. That we highly commend the spirit of mag
inity and forbearance with which men who have
iin the rebellion, but who now frankly and
tly co-operate with us In restoring the peace
o country aud reconstructing the fcouth
late governments upon the basis of impartial
s and equal rights, are received back into the
anion of the lojal people; and we favor the
al of the disqualifications and restrictions im
upon the late rebels in tbe same measure as
irit of disloyalty will die out, aud as may be cou
l with the safety of tho loyal people.
That we recognize tbe great principles laid
in the immortal Declaration of Independence,
