TIIK NEW DBMOORATIC DE
The spirit of the New York press on
the new Baptism of Democracy is good t»
read. The World especially signalizes the
event by a spiteful flinging of its old shell
overboard and a vicious pinch of Jeff.
Davis with its new claws. We think less
of the World for this specimen of wicked
spite towards a man who bas long ceased
to be formidable. It is mean and coward
ly to shirk its share of the responsibility.
We are no special admirers of Jeff
Davis, regarding him with pity rather;
but we think he is innocence itself com
pared with the World aud that portion of
tho democracy which it represents. These
men, who vow wash their hands of com
plicity iv the rebellion, and cut so savagely
their former ally, did more than all the
leaders of the South to complete its ruin.
Thoy repealed the Missouri Compromise,
and when tho intelligent yeoman of the
North roused to push back the black wave
of slavery fiom tho fair, virgin lands of
the West, they denouueed it as an assault
upou tbe South. They deliberately plot
ted to make the South believe that Mr.
Lincoln and the Republican party wero
seeking to abolish slavery.
Aud so tho war came with the Demo
cratic leaders pledged to preveut the gov
ernment from coercing the rebellious
States. Helpless to fulfill their pledges
against the stormy wrath of a mighty
people, they nevertheless prevented by
their treasonable teachings a short and
decisive war. They prolonged the war
by impeding the gbvernment and hold
ing out falso bopos to tho South, aud
thus impoverished its resources and
brought upon it utter ruiu.
Men of the South, will you be deceived
by these unscrupulous and selfish dema
gogues ? Tbey are the same lying prophets
a. of old. They can give you nothing in
exchange for your votes, which is all they
want. They taunt and rovile your leader
to catch votes North. To-morrow they
would nominate Jeff. Davis for the Presi
dency from the same motive. You havo
no hope of peace or progress but in a
party that seeks to build up your waste
places by protection to industry, main
tenance of schools and equality of all be
fore the law.
This is a favorite game with school-boys
—it is played by catchiDg ono of their
numbor, throwing him upon the ground,
and as many as can, getting one on tho
other, until the bottom one is almost
smothered. The one next to him, suffers
nearly as much as the one beneath him ;
so on, until there is but one who really
enjoys the game, aud that is the one ou
top. We have seen strategy played even in
this little game; for instance, a boy who
has been pretty well squeezed once, fights
rather shy of tho party, but is entrapped
by one of tbem lying down, the rest of the
crowd around him crying "more sack,"
"more sack," until the shy one comes up to
eojoy the sport, when he is nabbed and un
dergoes the tortures of another sacking.
We see this game being played in our
midst every day. Poor old gentleman.
Jeff Davis is on tbe ground, and every
body is crying "more sack," "more sack.''
The Enquirer is next to the bottom, the
Whig next, and the Dispatch on top,
(there's where you may bet you'll always
find it), no matter if it does 3ay frequently
the bottom rail's on top 1
See these youug gentlemen, how they
are kicking up their heels, yelling and
screaming, because tho poor old geutle
man wishes to speak the truth, which is
in bim. Shame on you, chivalrous youths,
who but a few years ago, praised him as
the great leading spirit of the age, as tho
expounder of Southern faith, as the man
who was bursting the hearts of our people
by taking his habitation in tbem.
Yoa who would have torn from your
shoulders your best trimmed mantles and
cast them iv the dust that lie might not
soil his peecious feet, you who declared
him a martyr, you whose proudest privi
lege was to tip your hat to him in recog
nition, you who declared, that we who
denied his Deity, should be burned as
infidels, you who sent your armed bauds
in search of the Unionists of Virginia,
who declared that Jeff. Davis wa» no
more than man, you who ha\*e been
guilty of all these things, to vow jump
on the poor old gentleman, yelling "more
sack!" "more sack!" ought to bo h.sart
ily ashamed of yourselves.
But, stop I an idea just taps us ; per .iap_
now after all, we are the boy they are try
ing to catch, when wo will be invited to
take Mr. Davis' position, and he clinib to
the top. We shant join you yet, but "will
stand off aud look.
Perhaps this little programme WM ai
ranged when Mr. Davis, Gov. Hoffman
and others engaged in their several "phis.
zles." At all events, we shall keep our
eyes wide open ; and let you go on squeez
ing the old gentleman, certain tbat if there
is anything in him you will bring it out.

Kettle Calling Potßi.ack.—Andrew
Johnson remarked a few days ago, tlbat
Jeff. Davis was doing Democracy great
harm by his foolish talk about tbe lost
cause, &c. If Jeff, could be interviewed
about this time he would prouounce Andy
the fool when he talks about repudiation.
We think they are a pretty pair ; but yet
honestly express the sentiments of their
party. This reminds us of tbe fonviqtH
and the chain-gang.
We have acknowledged tlio Dispatch to
b3 the more cunning of either of ita Demo
cratic coten_p.jrf.rii>.;, but, until this morn
ing, had no idea that it was a. politically
dishonest aa it has piovt.ii itself. While
both the Enquirer and Whig, who are
equally anxious to defeat Republicanism,
have furnished their readers with the en
tire proceedings of the Ohio convention,
this paper, with intent to deceive, delibe
rately suppresses tha important fact that,
in a body casting 396 votes, 109 of them
voted to declare the fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments of the constitution
revolutionary and void.
It would have its article upon thia sub
ject read by its numerous readers, with a
very important portion of the proceedings
deliberately and intentionally suppressed
We consider this an attempt at deception
and downright dishonesty, in which no
paper, disposed to act fairly, would desire
to indulge. The 169 votes cast iv the
Ohio convention represents a proportion of
Democrats in Ohio, of IG9 to 220, showing
that even in Ohio, whose loyalty was not
doubted during the war, more t+ian one
half of the party is in favor of annulling
these amendments, and opposed to the pro
fessed acceptance of the situation, as sug
gested by ValU-idigham. If this be true
of Ohio, what may we expect of Virginia?
If the Democratic organ here deliberately
cheits its own party, what confidence can
be placed in its professions by Republi
Its determination to deceive, should
have carried it a little farther, by sup
pressing the whole platform of Otiio Dem
ocracy. The whole thing is a fraud and
swindle from beginning to end, for, while
declaring its acceptance of tbe Constitution
as it is, it reserves to itself tho right to
trample it under foot just whenever neces
You may hoodwink your party in the
South, and be able to drag along with you

The Charlottesville Chronicle. —
We are glad to welcome, ns an evidence of
the growth and prosperity of Charlottes
ville, the Daily Chronicle, which, although
differing with us politically, agrees with
us In our efforts to rovive the droopiugs of
our beloved old Commonwealth. It is so
neat and haudsomely gotten up, that we
almost wish it was on our side.
While welcoming it as heartily as we
do, we wish to correct a mistake it con
tains, based, uo doubt, upon improper in
formation. It states that General Wick
ham was ou the train containing tho
editorial excursionists, and although applied
to by them, refused to permit the train to
stop for teu minutes at the University.
We have conversed with Gen. Wickhatn
upon the subject, who informs us, that the
statement is not true, inasmuch as the
train was a special one, in charge of the
party itself, and tbat they had exclusive
control of it, and that if tbey had have
wished, they could have stopped there a
day or more. He was on the train, on Its
return, and not going West. We are sure
tbe Chronicle will do Gen. Wickham the
justice to correct this matter.
We wish for the Chronicle much suc
cess, and hope it will be able to bear the
next defeat of its party, with as good
grace an we have, our last.

An Answer to Prayer.—Some time
ago, Uncle Phil Green, passing innocently
through Capitol Square, not supposing be was
doing any harm, cast a stone at one of the
many bin!, which wore then inhabiting its in
viting shade; whereupon the keen eyes of one
of tbe policemen, whose duties are to keep
peace in the sacred enclosure, pounced upon
him, and demanded the payment ot one dollar.
Uncle Phil not having the wherewith with
which to satisfy the hunger of this limb of tho
law, was kindly permitted to proceed to find a
friend who would lend him the amount.
After a laborious search he procured the
dollar and immediately proceeded to make a
depoaite with the properly authorized agent
to receive such contributions.
As the precious dollar escaped forever from
his vision, he breathed a prayer of revenge and
immediately proceeded to do the fearful deed.
He went home, but before retiring petitioned
Heaven, that it would give wings to the birds,
and that tbey might depart to other regions
where "folks" were free to fling rocks at 'em
much us they pleased. He "clars for God" hia
earnest prayer caused the bird* to depart.—
Uncle riiilj-bnuld be careful; for, if tbey make
him pay a dollar for just flinging at one it
would cost him considerable to pay for the
Removal of a Newspaper Office.—
The Enquirer newspaper and job office will to
day be removed from the corner of Franklin
and Twelfth streets to the more convenient and
commodious building on Main street, between
Twelfth and Thirteenth, and between the stores
of J. C. Page, Jr., and P. Weisiger. Thia
building is one ef tbe best built in tbe city,
and will be fitted up by the Enquirer associa
tion aa a first-class newspaper establishment.
The Enquirer is conducted with ability and
fairness, and unlike many newspapers of our
State, refuses to indulge in the low, vulgar
abuse of Republicans, wbich compels us to re
spect it. Its editorial stall' is an able one, and
as at present constituted, consists of J. C.
Southall and Robert E. Withers, editora-in
chief; A. P. Bennett, Inows editor ; Wm. S.
Oilman and John A. Pizzlni, city editors.—
The buainesa department is under the control
of W. D. Chesterman, manager, and S. McG.
Handsome Sewiso Machine—We have
lately visited several of our sewing machine
establishments, most of them having handsome
ones from the different factories; but on yes
terday, wo saw in the wagon of one ol them,
the handsomest sewing machine of any wo
have yet observed. To attempt a perfect de
scription of it, would be a failure. Its shape
was exactly in accordance with our notions of
what a perfect one abonld be. Ita form was
that of a young lady, handsomely dressed,
with a pair of beautiful black eyes, and an
exquisite lot of natural curls. In fact, it was
tbe kind of sewing machine we were accus
tomed to when a child—a young lady. We
offered to purchase, regardle.ss of price, but
the polite agent informed us that it waa not
for sale, having been reserved for himself.
A Most Painful Accident. —On
Thursday afternoon, while Mr. Theo. Evane,
a moulder at .Messrs. Talbott.'_ Son's foundry,
was handling a ladle of molten iron, he acci
dentally struck against something in his way,
which caused the ladle to turn in his hands
and empty its contents on one of his feet; a
portion of it running into his shoe. Tbe agony
and suffering of the unfortunate man is past
description or imagination; for upon taking
off bis shoe the flesh from his foot, wherever
the hot metal bad touched it, dropped off in
large flakes. As soon as possible he was taken
borne and received medical attention, but it is
feared that his burns are of so serious a char
acter aa to necessitate amputation of the foot.
Nothing gives us moro pleasure than to
greet an old acquaintance after a long separa
tion. We had tbe pleasure of seeing our old
friend Captain Finks in the city yesterday, who
tor fifteen or twenty years waa a conductor on
the now Chesapeake and Ohio Road. He was
one of the moat popular conductors we ever
knew, because be was kind and polite to every
body, and unlike many of the present day
ones, never imagined himself the owner of the
property under his control, as well as tbe pas
sengers. He bas been quite sick for some time,
but is rapidly reoovering. We hope it will be
the pleasure of the managers of this road to
secure hia services again, as soon as he is fit for
d«ty, thereby gratifying his many friends,
wbo are patrons of the road.
Personal—We were pleased to see
Hon. George W. Graham, assessor fourth
internal revenue diatrict, in the city a few
days ago. He was looking well and cheerful,
and reports everything quiet on tbe soutbside,
so far aa politics are concerned. The Repub
licans of his section are wide-awake and are
in constant training for tbe fall campaign.
Mr. Graham ia one of our active, determined,
and unflinching Republicans in hia section,
and if we bad a few more such workers in our
party, Virginia would soon redeem herself
from Democratic thraldom, and compromise
no more with political wrongs.

An Useless Appeal —The Enquirer of
this morning earnestly appealst o to the old
concern of a Council to stop and see if $6,000
will not efi'ect for wbich tbey now propose
spending $75,000. To reflect would be too late
for tbe purpose of fixing up a "job" by the
old, as the new Council will take its place the
Ist of July. Ob, no llt is impossible to ex
amine into the matter now ; somebody will
bave to sell the bonds, then somebody will have
to be paid a big price for the work of supply
ing Church Bill with water, and as somebody
would like to make just a few more dollars
before they go out, we imagine the Enquirer's
sensible advice will bo left unnoticed.

THE LATEST NEWS
President (..K.it Interviewed.
HIS OPINION OF THE TREATY—THE CUBAN
Washington, June _.—A reporter of
the New York Herald hai interviewed
General Grant on the subject of the treaty.
He makes the President aay that tbe
treaty ia perfectly satisfactory to him, and
that it was either this or war, though ho
thinks if be could have had his own way,
be could have done bettter. Every article
was submitted to bim and approved by
him, and each article was also submitted
to the ministers of the Queen, costing a
great deal of money for telegraphing. The
Queen, beforehand, pledged ber signature
to the treaty. Gen. Grant, therefore, re
gards the treaty as practically ratified.
On tha pecuniary question involved, the
President is sure the House of Representa
tives will act patriotically, and says the
treaty must be ratified and made a law by
both nations. It is necessary ; the neces
sity is immediate.
General Grant would have liked better
terms, but there were two parties to the
bargain. It was, however, a settlement of
an iiritating question likely any day to
bring tbe two nations into armed conflict.
Settlement or war were the alternatives.
The pith of the thing is in tbe avoidance
The interviewer makes the President
say, regarding Cabinet changes, thßt there
is not one word of truth in these state
ments. "Mr. Fish will nut leave the
Cabinet with my consent daring my ad
ministration. There has been no recent
discussion in Cabinet regarding Cuban af
fairs ; there has been no change regarding
Cuban policy. We are mindful of our ob
ligations to friendly nations. The condi
tion of affairs in Cuba does not seem to
demand actum on our part."
The interviewer makes Presideut Grant
say, in conclusion, that time heals more
wounds than medicine, and patience is a
very good specific.

To the Editor of the State Journal:
It has generally been believed that we
have no Ku-Klux-Klan in Virginia. lam
free to say that I am one of those who
have been of that opinion. There has been
no need of it here, for the Democracy
have been enabled to Ku-Klux us pretty
effectually through the legislature and its
courts. Both have not hesitated to urn*
the enormous powers assumed by and con
ferred upon them, to outrage the rights of
the loyal people.
But it seems we are to have a of
the real Ku-Klux in Virginia. A promi
nent Republican in Sussex county, recently
received a letter which contained a rude
drawing of a man suspended from a gal
lows by a rope, with a coffin at his feet.
Underneath was inscribed the words
"Your politics are objectionable !"
I have information from a reliable source
in Surry couuty, tbat two or more good
public schools have been opened for the
white children in that county, bnt not a
public s-chool as yet for the colored chil
dren. This matter has once beeu brought
to the attention of Mr. Rtiffner, the Stat_
Superiuteudent of Public Instruction, ami
he promised to investigate, and enforce a
compliance with the law. Il would be
well for the school authorities of Surry
c unity to be made to understand that the
law .-ays there shall be uo distinction be
tween the races, but the schools shall be
'•under the same general regulations as to
management, usefulness and efficiency."
Mr. Ruth passed a very restless night
last night, but he is much more comfortable
to-day, and hi. physician speaks a little
more encouragingly of him. His condition,
however, is extremely precarious.
