Death of an Astronomer.—John
Frederick William Herscbel, Bart., whose
unexpected death was announced on Sat
urday, was born at Slough, near Windsor,
(the only son of tho astronomer Sir Fred
erick William Herschel,) on March 7, 1792.
He was educated at St. John's College,
Cambridge, where he won the honors of
senior wrangler in 1813. Iv 1826 the
Royal Astronomical Society voted him
their gold medal for his observations on
the multiple Btars, iv connection wi'h the
astronomer South. The astronomical so
ciety again voted him tbeir gold medal in
1836, for his catalogue of nebulas.
In 1848 tho astronomical society voted
him a testimonial for his work on the
southern hemisphere, which embodied the
results of his observations mado at tho
Cape of Good Hope during the years
1834-' B. Iv 1865 be was nominated to
the honorable position of one of the eight
foreign associates of the French Academy.
In 1860 he published his "Outlines of As
tronomy," a manual, the value of which,
in a popular sense, cau hardly be over
estimated. No mention of his failing
health bad been made of late in the Eng
lish journals. It is probable tbat his in

years have been as severe as those of his
youth, have weighed him down, and as ho

REPUBLICAN MHONAL PLATFORM.
The National Republican party of the United
States, assembled in National Convention in the cily
of Chicago, ou the 21st day of May, 1866, make the
following declaration of principles :
1. We congratulate the country on the assured
success of the reconstruction policy of Congross. ns
evinced by the adoption, in the majority of the
States laroly in rebellion, of constitntim* securing
equal civil and political right* loall; and it is the
duty of the Government to sustain those institutions
and to prevent the people of auch States from belug
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Congress of equal nuffrage to
all loyal men at the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of gratitndo, and of
justice, and must be maintained ; while the question
of suffrage in all th* loyal State* properly belongs
to the people of those States.
3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a na
tional crime ; and the national honor requires tt c
payment of the public indebtedness In tbe utter
most good faith to all creditors at home and abroad,
not only according to letter, hut tbe spirit of the
laws under which it wa* contracted.
4. It 1* due to the labor of the nation that taxa
tion should be equalized,and reduced as rapidly as
the natioual faith will permit.
6. The national debt, contracted as It has been for
the preservation of the Union for all timo to come,
should be extended over a fair period for redemption;
and it is the duty of Congress to reduce the rate of
interest thereon, whenever it can be honestly done.
6. That the best policy to diminish our burden of
debt is to so improve our credit that capitalists wl<l
seek: to loan us money at lower rates of Interest than
we vow pay, and must continue lo pay so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspeoted.
7. The Government of the Unitod States Bhould be
administered with the strictest economy; and tho
corruptions which havo boon so shamefully nursed
and fostered by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi
8. We profoundly deploro the untimely and tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession
to the Presidency of Andrew Johnson, who has acted
treacherously to the people who elected him and tbo
cause he was pledged to support; who has usurped
high legislative and Judicial functions; who has re
fused to execute the laws ; who has used his I igh
office to Induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who ha* employed his executive powers
to render inseoure the property, the peace, liberty
and life of the citizen; who ho* abused tho p irdon
ing power; who has denounced tho national legiala
ture as unconstitutional; who has persistently and
corruptly resisted, by every moans in his power,
every proper attempt at tho recoi struction of the
State* lately fn rebellion; who ha* perverted tho
public patronage into an engine of wholesale cor
ruption; and wbo ho* been Justly impeached for
high crimes and misdemeanors, and properly pro
nounced guilty thereof hy the vote of thirty-five

ropean powers, that because v man is ouce a subject
he is always so must be resisted at every basaid t,y

thorized by the law* of i titions.iiii.l at, war with our
natioual honor and independence. Naturalizod cit
izen* are entitled to protection in all their right* ol
citizenship, a* thoagh they were native-born ; and

ized, must be liable to arrest and Imprisonment by
auy foreign power for acts done or words spoken in
this country ; and, if so arrested and imprisoned, it
Is the duty of the Government to interfere lv his be
10. Of all who were faithful In the trials of the
late war, there were none entitled to more especial
honor tban the brave soldier* and seamen who en
dured tho hardships of campaign and cruise, aud im
perilled their lives in the service ofthe country;
the bounties and ponsiou* provided hy the laws for
these brave dolenders of the nation are obligations
never to be forgotten ; the widows and orphans of
tho gallant dead are the ward* of the people—a sa
cred legacy bequeathed to the nation's protecting
11. Foreign Immigration, which in the past has
added *o much to the wealth, developemont, and re-
Bources, and inoreaee of power to this republic, tbe
asylum of tho oppressed of all nations, should be
fostered and encouraged by a liberal and Just policy.
12 This convention declares itself in sympathy
with all oppressed peoples struggling for tiieir rights.
IS. That we highly commend the spirit of m.g
iini.imiiy aud forbearance with which men who havo
served In tho rebellion, but who now frankly aud
honestly co-operate with us in restoring the peace
of tho country and reconstructing tho South
ern State governments upon the basis of impartial
justice and equal rights, are received back Into the
communion of the loyal pe>ple; and we favor the
removal of the disqualifications and restrictions im
posed upon the late lehels in the same measure as
the spirit of disloyalty will die out, and as may he con
sistent with the safety of tho loyal people.
14. That we recognize the greut principle* laid
dowu in the Immortal Declaration of Independence,
as the true foundation of democratic government
and wo hail with gladness every effort toward mak
ing these principle* a living reality on every inch of

STARKE'S DIXIE PLOW.
BY INVITATION OF MR. F. C. WILLIAMS, OF
tha county of Nottowxy, a number of geu

ber 10. to tent by practical experiment ihe compar
ative value nf the DlXls. PLOW, nanufactured by
Starke k Co , *nd any otLer that might enter the
field of competition.
The plows were t»ken to the field at half past two
P. M . the followiug gentlemen acting as IMfta : F.
W. Kpes, J 11. Willia.ua, Robert ccott, Jas. H. Gil
liam, Wm. T. ChilntiAD, Klch»rd Kpe-j, Dr. Darting,
Sidney Grave*, Walton Synuor, F. C. Williams, (I,
N. feily, and .1. M Hurt- Mr. S. Grave* and Walt, v
Sydnor were tha principal plowmen Mr W. Kydnor
wo'kingthe Watt plow and B Graves the Dixie —
md.li of whom handled them with masterly sk.il aod
Ihe plows entered were the Dixie two horse right
and left-band plows, and the -att two-horse left
hand. Boon after the trial commenced, the beam of
the Dixie rght hand broke in two and was laid
aside, the cont-'st being narrowed to tha Watt left
band and Dixie left-hand. The soil first selected
was a stubble loam without soil ; but as the pi >ws
were new, and did not turn in consequence of tbe
roughness of the castintis, after a short trial it was
decided to take them into an >tfaer field tbe
soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, * tth a timo
thy sol cove ed with vegetatlun aud with »traw.
The plows here performed their work admirably,
cutting and mning clear without choking.
As tbe Dixi> was a new comer, as the contest
waxed warm most of the judges took hold of it to
test personally its practical working. While there
Is no intention to do Injustice to any, as (.either
party had agent or representative present, and Loth
plows uid well, yet tbe trial, with the award of the
ju'ges, is deemed of sufficient Importance to tha in
tcrest of sgiicultuxe to Justify its publication
'ihe award of the judges was unanimously in favor
of tbo Dixie on the following grounds:
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow.
2d. It cut a wider furrow.
3d It more effectually Inverted the sod.
4th. The draft seemed to be no greater.
6tb. The mcchaab al arrangement for altering cut
was deeaied mora simple and efficient.
At the conclusion of the trial some of ihe Judges
were so pleased as to determine to order them for
their own u*e. J. M. HURT, Secretary.
I certify lint the above was sent to the Richmond
"Whin" for publication by myself; that 1 am not
acquainted with Mr. Starke; that he had ncvi ecu
the paper and knew nothing of its contents, and wa
in no wise a party to the tii .1 of the plows alluded
