THB OUT-GOING COUNCIL.
No aody of office-holder-, was over
hurled fiom political station by popular
outcry, or died by natural death, so cursed,
despised, aid universally execrated, as the
majority of *o councilmen of the city of
Richmond, now about to retire. It Is dif
ficult to conceive of a body of men so
generally despisid by friends and foes, or
to find one wbo tio well deserves all the
contempt which Las been heaped upon
them. Entering upon office, and adminis
tering upon tho affaira of a constituency
friendly to them, more than willing, ready,
and glad, in fact, to approve of their ac
tion, as far as it is possible for an honest
and intelligent people to do so, or to cast
the mantle of charity over acts that no
man could approve, it is remarkable that
these out-going gentlemen have no ad
mirers, approvers, friends, or apologists
even; but uubroken, united, universal
execration follows each of them and all of
They found a city torn, distracted and
distressed by internal dissensions, bitter
ness and animosity,—a people nearly
divided on the unfortunate line of color;
a community oppressed to the last degree
with an enormous burthen of debt, and
this was true not only of tbe finance of
the city proper, but of the citizens gene
rally. The only redeeming feature of the
unfortunate condition of affairs then exist
ing, waa the general willingness prevailing
in the public mind to commence anew
substantial, permanent reconstruction, —
a disposition to readily adapt themselves
to the new condition of things, and a sin
cere desiro to allay past animosities, while
they invited a new reign of fraternity and
Theso wretched marplots not only tailed
to do what they should have done, but de
feated the good intention and benevolent
purposes of better men. They have inten
sified the hatred which before was bitter
enough ; they have waged a relentless war
fare against the city and its prosperity ;
they have divided the citizens on a line
worse than that of color, —the line of outs
and ins; they have squandered the re
sources of the city and burdeued the citi
zens witb uew aud unheard-of taxation till
now tbe great regret is that they take them
so',?es off by natural death, by the expira
tion of the term of their misrule, without
allowing an incensed, abused and out
raged constituency the pleasure of kicking
them out of their places.
The disgraceful scenes that occurred be
tween the partisans of Mr. English and Mr.
Wynne are still fresh in our recollections.
It was not a matter of great consequence
how these gentlemen and their friends dam
aged each other, but it was a cause for
sorrow and regret that tbey had it in their
power thus to defame the public character.
Nobody has forgotten, or is likely to for
get, the grave aud important mission upon
which a committee of distinguished mem
bers of the Council were sent to the sover*
eign and independent State of Kentucky,
for the highly honorable and creditable
purpose of purchasing mules; nor will they
forget the wasteful and extravagant ex
penditures thus imposed upon the city so
long as they see day by day lazy, idle and
indolent mules and masters loitering up
and down our streets, as useless as unorna
Mechanics and laboring men are likely
to remember for many a day the suicidal,
bitter and remorseless policy of proscrip
tion against labor, which induced these
same unfaithful public servants to cripple,
by every device which their infernal inge
nuity could suggest, every home enterprise
and every Richmond mechanic, laborer
and workingman. They were in fact, as
intelligent men know, ready to pay tribute
to every city, to buy anywhere except in
Richmond alone 1
Another year of such financial manage
ment as the past will involve this city in
nothing short of a revolution. The debt
of the city has been increased $068,129.68!
The estimated expenses for the coming
year, incurred by tbe extravagance and
vicious policy of the gentlemen, is the
enormous sum of $788,732.71|l The dis
bursements by tbe same reckless men dur
ing tbe last year were $709,672, and after
they had squeezed tbe orange perfectly
dry, so dry in fact that its skin was not
worth preserving, there still remained un
paid appropriations amounting to $52,
It is a matter of public notoriety that
city bonds have been sold for less than
three-quarters of their value ; that these
men have so debauched tbe public credit
that no prudent man would loan upon it,
except at enormous rates of usurious in
terest, nor without the deposit of immense
amounts of city securities for comparative
ly small loans, and then only for a short
time, with "interest off." Still after ex
hausting all these extraordinary means of
obtaining money they have bequeathed,
with their dying breath, to their unfortu
nate successors, a deficiency to the enor
mous amount of $466,799 22, nearly half
a million, to be raised by taxation during
the year 18711
They did not even have the manliness
to exhibit the true condition of their ac
counts, nor the real enormity of their ex
travagance; for, while they report the ex
penses of the city government at $709,
--672, there is actually an item of "extra
ordinary expense" amounting to nearly a
quarter of a million of dollars, or, to bo
exact, $223,560! This, theD, in brief, is
the legacy left to U3 by these reckless
spendthrifts! This is the eDormous bur
den, nearly one million of dollars, with
which thoy have loaded us down ! This
is the amount which their extravagant
prodigality has cost vi 1
We know all of us, only too well, how
deeply our people tiro afflicted and over
bourne by the calamities, misfortunes and
pecuniary embarrassments, under which
they are suffering. We know that the
property of the city, especially the most
valuable of it, has gone down day by
day, week by week, and month by month,
in value, till now it will hardly rent for
more than enough to pay repairs, taxes,
insurance and other expenses; and we
know, too, that the red flag is seen and
the sound of the auctioneer's hammer is
heard on the front steps of premises whose
owners, utterly ruined by inordinate taxa
tion, are compelled to sell their property
for what it will bring.
Another year of such administration of
the financial affairs will make any man who
owns property in the city to any extent
poor, wretched aad miserable, just in pro
portion as the extent of his possessions is
increased. Wo must have a reformation,
and if it is not speedily made, and by
peaceable measures, we shudder to think
with what disorders and riot it will finally
The New York Tribune, referring to tha
many tales representing Lincoln as a good
na-tured ignoramus, says :
"Now this good-natured zany was a man
over fifty years of age, who practiced law
successfully all his life, who had been in
Congress and his Stste Legislature, who
had been the leader of his party in Illinois
for twenty years, who was the most con
summate and far-seeing political manager
in the Mississippi Valley. He knew by
education and instinct tbe general drift and
tendency of American politics better than
any man in Congress. He kept the mere
politicians daucing about him like puppets
to his piping. He was hoDest, as states
men go, but he never despised human
weaknesses and follies as means of govern
ment. He said one day, in an hour of bit
terness, after closiog a protracted local
squabble with a brilliant compromise, "All
there is of honest statesmanship consists
in combining individual meanness for the
public good.' Yet it is this shrewd and
sagacious schemer, this Macbiavel of the
back timber, who is generally represented
by recollcctors and paragraphists as a
sniveling sentimentalist, full of credulity
and enthusiasm, blown to red heat by every
blast of rustio patriotism which visited
"Those impatient gentlemen who went
to the capital to tell him what he should
do, remember well enough the reception
they met with. One of them, a promineut
New York lawyer, began his remarks with
the swelling phrase, 'Mr. President, the
North having generously offered you its last
dollar and its iast man'—was interrupted
with the chilling retort, 'That is poetical
and not true. The North gives not a dol
lar except on good security, and every State
in the North has protested against its quota
in the draft.' The speech was entirely
spoiled, and tho impationt patriot went
home to construct his report of the
The Southern States are likely to de
rive little benefit irom the act increasing
the national bank currency fifty-four mil

of this additional currency have been paid
out, and there are on file application for
about ten millions more. These come
mostly from the Western States and Ter
ritories. The first distribution was made
upon the basis of population. Hereafter
it is to be made upon the basts of resources
aud wealth. The comptroller of the trea

be unable to take much of the remaining
circulation, and that at least twenty-five
millions will remain for distribution

the present year.— N. Y. Herald.

for the statement that the government is
at this time nearer at peace with the In

placing the administration of ludian affairs
in the hands of honorable, intelligent and
humane men of various religious denomi

We have received from Messrs. H. M. Smith
_ Co., their illustrated annual catalogue of
agricultural implements for 1871, which is
published in a superior style by Measrs. Fer
guason St, Rady, printers of this city.
The establishment of H. M. Smith & Co. is
too well known to the people of Virginia and
tbe South to need commendation atour hands;
but aa we are earnest advocates and supporters
of home manufactures we cannot neglect to
give thia firm a paaeing notice. The senior
member of tbia house, in conjunction with
others, commenced business on the corner of
Main and Nineteenth streets, in 1829, if we are
not mistaken, and from tbat date to tbe pres
ent, tbe business has steadily and surely in
creased, until now it is as widely known as
any other establishment in the country.
The catalogue before ua—a work containing;
eighty-eight pages—gives some Insight into
the vaat resourcea of this house. It is filled
witb cuts representing almost every deacrlp
tion of agricultural implement used, with tbeir
uses, and the price at wbicb they can be pro
cured. A large number of them owe their or
igin to tbe inventive genius of Messrs. H. M.
aitnith _ Co. A largo force of workmen are
conataotly employed, in two factories, and the
warerooms at No. 1532 Main street, are kept
well tilled with the results of their labor. We
would advise the farmers and planters of Vir
ginia and the South, when tbey visit the city,
to call at these warerooms and examine for
themselves the endless variety of implements
to be there aeen, and to be sura to send for a
catalogue, which will prove of great value to
them, even if they do not purchase any of the
For forty-one years the manufactures of the
senior partner have been tbe favorites among
the farmers and planters of Virginia. The
reputation ao thoroughly established for ex
cellence and reliability of work during this
long period, bas, aince the war, produced a
large and constantly increasing demand for
their goods from the South and Southwest.
Thia large trade has been established without
drumming, or tbe modern system of traveling
agenta. The gooda bare been tbeir own her
alds, and every sale haa led to others.
To the farmers and dealers of the South who
bare not heretofore purchased of them, we
would say, give this reliable firm a fair trial,
aa those who favor them with tbeir orders may
rest assured that no machine or implement
will be allowed to leave their house tbat is not
sure to give full satisfaction to the purchaser,
and bear tbe teat of long service. Efficiency
and durability will be, aa they hare been in
tbe paat, the leading characteristics of their

Fashionable Marriages. —A large number
of persona assembled yesterday afternoon at
St. Peter's Cathedral to witneas tbe wedding
ceremonies of Mr. Kobt. £. English and Miss
Madaline Augustine, eldest daugher of Joseph
Augustine, Ksq ,of this city. The bride and
groom were attired in an elegant and tasteful
manner, aud were attended by a number of
their friends. The ceremony was performed
by the Right Rev. Bishop McGill. The happy
couple left tbe city last orening, and will be
absent several days.
A large and fashionable crowd assembled at
St. Paul's last evening to witness tha marriage
of Dangerueld Lewis of Clarke county, to Miss
Carter Perm Freeland of this city. The cere
mony was very stylish. The Key. Dr. Minne

riage ritual of the Episcopal church.
Improvements —As well us other parts
of the city, Church Hill is gradually awaken
ing to the spirit of the age, and improvements
are going on and in contemplation in several
localities. Among others, we notice tbat S.
Wesley Farrar has greatly enlarged and im
proved hia drug atore on the corner of Leigh
and Twenty-fifth streeta, and is fitting it up in
a style tbat will equal some of our more aristo
cratic down-town establishments. His assort
ment of drugs, medicines and fancy articles
will be largely increased by ordera from tho
Northern factories, and will bo reliable and
of the purest character. In addition to which
a soda fountain will be arranged, which, wifh
the best syrups, will greatly invigorate tbe
denizens of the Hill with a cool and refreebin :
beverage during the summer montha. We
notice tbat he bas supplied himself with an un
usual quantity of plaster, tbe explanation of
which is caused by the base-ball fever break
ing out atrt-sh among our juvenile friends in
that locality. Medicines are not very pala
table, but it is some consolation to know that
when you get them from Farrar, they come
from a neat and tasty establishment, and are
put up witb care and experience.
