Official Paper for the Government-
MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 6, 1871.
T« Our Republican Friends.—Wo
»re in receipt daily, from all sections of
the State, of letters from different persons,
recommending their friends as propor per
sons to represent the party in the next
Legislature. It is impossible to publish
them all ; for our paper would be filled
with such matter alone, if we did so. Be
sides, we propose not to recommend any
man for office until by party action, he
shall be selected ; then, we may be count
ed upon to do our best for his election.
We make this explanation to satisfy those
whose articles we refuse to publish.
_ m — 1
The Virginia Herald doesn't understand
tbe game of turning from a Republican to
a Democrat and 6ghting niggers. We are
glad of it, and hope it will continue to be
ignorant of it.—State Journal.
We can readily conceive how easy it
would be for an honest man to "understand
the gamb" of turning from a Republican
to a Democrat; but how a man outside of
the lunatic asylum could turn from tho
Democratic party to the slime of Republi
canism, is beyond our comprehension.
And however much we might like to stir
up strife between the Taces wo could not
hope to compete with several radical jour
nals we wot of, whose experience in that
line runs back to the time when the falling
star of the South warned the rats to desert
The above slip has been sent us by a
friend, with tbe endorsement upon it, that
the writer is an individual of no calibre.
It required no endorsement of this kind to
see that at a glance. It is not our habit to
notice such stuff in journalism, particularly
when it emanates from some X road, hot
tbe fact that we do not know what paper
claims the honor of such stuff, induces us I
to notice it, so far as to explain, just a lit- I
tie. The Virginia Herald, to which our
short article referred, is published we be
lieve at Fredericksburg, and we cheerfully
accord it a respectable standing among the
fraternity. Our article was a piece of
pleasantry, in answer to one of a similar
character from it. If it saw our article,
quoted above, it doubtless so regarded it.
If there is another "Virginia Herald
published in Virginia wo are strangers to it.
From the character of its article, wo
imagine its author to be some beardless
youth, who sports a rattan and slick beav
er, with a pair of dollar kids, and whose
attentions to the ladies, consumes more
of his time than his paper ; who by some
streak ot luck, owns or hires a press and
type, in the use of which, be is preventing
some oue else from doing valuable service
to his community. If the starched collar
gentleman will only devote more time to I
improving his country, by inviting emigra
tion, and less to " lunatic asylums" and
"slime of Republicanism," he would b9
more profitably engaged, besides giving
greater satisfaction to his more sensible
readers. Keep a clean nose, young man,
and see if by following our advice you can
render your X roads sheet, of any service
to your community.
The Great Tweed Marriage.
We have read, with considerable inter
est, the different accounts of the magnifi
cent wedding of one of the daughters of
Tammany Tweed, Esq., Chief Cook and
Bottle-Washer of New York Democracy;
several of whose emissaries have recently
visited our State, and declared that New
Hampshire and Connecticut could have
been carried easy enough by Democracy
but that Mr. Tweed, did not think them I
worth the trouble and expenso. He seems
to have a better opinion of the importance
of Virginia, and for what wo know may
have felt the importance of our last city
election, to such an extent as to furnish his
party with some of the money, used for
the purpose of electing a Democratic
All accounts agree that it was a mag
nificent affair, surpassing in splendor any
thing ever seen before on this continont
All of them, however, fail to tell us how
It is that Boss Tweed was able to support
such splendor. When it is remembered
that there are thousands of poor Democrats I
in New York, who find it hard work to
provide for their families with necessaries
of life, and who make the majority by
which Mr. Tweed is sustained, it will seem
strange to us here, that they should submit
quietly to his immense stealings.
Mr. Tweed, is said, but a few years ago,
to have been a bankrupt chairmaker,
against the latter of which we have no
word to say ; but when he discards his
trade of providing seats for people to sit
upon, and bo speculates iv political matters,
as to become the owner of millions of
money, obtained by fraud and dishonest
means, the submission of poor men to such
conduct is queer to us.
Many of his dupes are shoeless them
selves and their families, while his daugh
ter disdains to fasten her wedding shoes
with anything less valuable than spark
ling diamonds. Mr. Tweed, who runs
the machine, will doubtless join
the "new movement" enterprise and
will have much to say in the choice of
ths next candidate for President. He is
■xpected to be the grand leader of the
party of moral ideas aod will call upon
the laboring men of tho South to come
forward and assist him to elect his candt-
Will you be willing to follow in the
footsteps of such a man, whose rob
beries and ill-gotten gains enables bim to
pay sufficient for one dress to purchase i
you a handsome little farm ? We imag
ine not, and when the ventilation of men '
who have suddenly grown rich in such a
manner is properly made, the poor men of
Vlrginia'will oot be likely to sustain their.

Statea, asaemblod In National Convention in tbe city
I of Chicago, on tbe 21st day of May, IW) make th*
I following declaration xif principlea :
1 We congratulate tbo couutry on tho assured
success of tbe reconstruction policy of Cougreaa, aa j
evinced by the adoption, in the majority of the
Statea lately lv rebellion, of conatitntioua aeouring
equal civil and political righta to all; and It lathe
duty of the Government to sustain those institutions
and to prevent the people of auch Statea irom being
remitted to a atate ot anarchy.
1 Tho guaranty by Cougreaa of equal euffrage to
all loyal men at the South waa demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of gratitude, and of
Juatice, and must be maintained; while the question
of euffrago in all the loyal Stateß proporly belongs
I to the people of those Statea.
a. We uenounco all forma of repudiation as a na
tional crime ; and tho national honor reqnirea tbe
I payment of tho public indeblodneßß in tbe utter-
I moat good faith to all creditora at home and abroad,
I not only according to letter, but tbo aplrit of tbe
I lawa under which it waa contracted.

I tiouaboulil bo equalizod.aiid reduced as rapidly a*
tbe national faith will permit.

I the'preaorvation of tho Union for all time to come, I
I abould be exteuded over a fair poriod for redemption;

I we now pay, aad must continue to pay ao long a* re- |
pudlation, partial or total, open or covert, ia threat

admlniatered with tho atricteat economy; and the
corruption* which have been bo shamefully nuraed
and foatered by Andrew Johusan call loudly for radi
8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession
to tho Presidency of Andrew Johnson, who haa acted
treacherously to tbe people who olected him and tbe
cauae he was pledged to support; who baa usurped
high logialativo and Judicial functiona; who haa re
fused toexecnto the lawa; wbo has uaod hia high
oflice to induce other officers to ignore and violate

corruptly realßted, by every meaua In hia power,
every proper attempt at tbo reconstruction of the
Statea lately In rebellion; who has perverted the
public patronage into an engine of wholesale cor
