HINTS TO THK ADMINISTRATION
Think as we may of his knowledge cf
the "situation," it is the duty of the po
litical leaders of Virginia to sustain and
support the President, by keeping him
"posted" as to the condition of our party
and its futuro prospects in Virginia. That
we, who are free from bias, on account of
holding no office and seeking none, are
better qualified to view the field less pre
judiced, none will deny.
That Virginia is as thoroughly Repub
lican as Massachusetts we have no doubt ;
and that she has failed to exhibit her Re
publican strength, is owing to tho decep
tions and frauds practiced upon her people
by members of both political parties.
We have no word of censure for any—
for tho past and its errors—for it will do
no good ; but for the present and future
conduct of each patty, wo should hold
oureolves responsible did we fail to keep an
eye on their proceedings and give a timely
warning of their probable results. If the dart
strikes homo and wounds members of our
own party, it must be accepted as a blow
of kindness ; for we intend to spare none,
nor will we do so, wheu tho interests of
our party aud country are injured by their
We have already declaied that we are
in no way the organ of any ring or clique ;
our paper has been recognized to stand up
on that declaration. We now avow wo
are no man's friend when convinced that
he stands in tho way of our party inte
rests ; therefore, we are free to admit that
when occasions arises—and wo doubt not
but they will arise—mtn must stand from
under, or unequivocally put on the party
harness to work for the party, and not for
themselves or friends. Events of great
importance to the Republican parly are
transpiring around U3 every day. Our
adversaries aro sharp, cunning, selfish,
aod unscrupulous—they aro willing and
ready to resort to any means to defeat us
in the fall, and a defeat then, amounts to a
repetition in the Presidential election.
Not only as a patty, aro our enemies
industrious, but iudividunls of prominence
and ambition aro already baiting their
hooka and fishing in the waters where
spools of Republicans gather.
We catch the breeze from the southwest
and the southsido, aud its very breath
comes ladened with fair promises to our
patty, that if we will dv so and so, certain
things will bo done for us. Away, forever
away, with any entangling alliances; let
no Republican listen to tho syren song of
the deceiver. The "Walker Movement
should convince us by this time, that any
compromise with Democrats results only
in gain to them and loss to us. Let us
then awako to the necessities of the hour ;
let us as individuals perform our duty
then, as a party march to tbe fight; then
we shall be prepared to demand of the
administration that it perform its pait.
Wo need not go out of Richmond to see
the party divided in sentiment and action;
but, if it was necessary, we could prove it
the case generally throughout tho State.
These facts, some will say, should not be
told our enemies. We dispute it, and be
lieve it necessary that they should be men
tioned, and an effort made to remove tho
disturbing causes. We do not care who
knows them, provided good can result
from their exposure.
There ara men in office, iv all sections
of the State, who are worthless to us as
party men—who, by their willingness to
make love to the Democrats, are in the
way of our success. Why, wo ask, should
the paity bo'sacrifictd for them ? Are in
dividuals of more importance than the
success of the party 1 There aro still oth
ers, who, by continual croaking and dis
satisfaction because they can't lead aud di
rect things their own way, destroy tbeir
own usefulness and iujuro us. There are
those who would sacrifice influential aud
hard-workers of the party to gratify some
friend who is, perhaps, a stranger, and un
heard of before to the people. This class
of men must go dowu, must give way,
for the general good, aDd tho President
must see to it that they be disposed of.
You can never correct the wrong other
wise, for to attempt to retain in office aud
correct the conduct of a person who has
the disposition to do wrong, is au absurd
ity. If the shoe pinches it must be worn ;
we have not made it for any particular in
dividual ; wo are lighting alone upon gen
eral principles, and they are, that the of
fices of the country which command the
means and influence tn control elections,
must be taken from the drones and put
into the hands of efficient workers, and un
til the party can unite as ono man upon
this question, it is useless to attempt a fight
with an enemy whose watchword is
"union" iv all except that of our govern
We shall continue to write what we
know aud believe upon Iho subject, hoping
what we say may reach the eye and attract
the attention of those in authority, who
feel, like ourselves, tho impottance of im
proving our political condition in Virginia-
The Lynchburg (Va.) Republican says:
"Lynchbmg boasts of a sun dial which
was made iv London iv ihe year 1428, and
which, consequently, is now 443 years old,
and which, when Columbus crossed the
ocean blue and planted his staudard ou
American soil, enjoyed the ripe old ago of
sixty-four years. The ago of this venerable

questioned, and is doubtless thu oldest

: DESTRUCTION OK THE TOWN OF BATHANG,
IN CHINA— NEARLY THREE THOUSAND
f PEOPLE KILLED.
" Minister Low furnishes (he State De
partment at Washington with a brief ac
-1 count of a series of earthquakes which pre
f vailed for several days at Bathang, iv the
(. province of Sczhuen, China. About tho
f Ist of April there was a sudden and unac
countable rise of waters in the district of
3 liatbang, which continued until the lift,
- when tho country for nearly four hundred
miles around was convulsed by earth
quakes. The shocks were very severe,
and continued, with intermissions, for ten
' days, wheu they became less frequent,
• and finally ceased. The scenes which
- ensued were horrible beyond description.
, . During this time the earth rocked and
reeled like a ship at sea in it violent storm.
Eight temples were thrown down, 2,421
dwellings were destroyed and 2,293 per
sons crushed by the falling walls. To add
■ to these accumulated horrors flames broke
out among the ruios in Bathang in four
places, and raged with uncontrollable fury
' during five days, consuming everything
within thoir reach, and destroying the lives
j of hundreds who were lying wounded and
. helpless among the ruins of their homes.
. The grain collector at Bathang says that for
several days before the earthquake the water
1 had overflowed the dyke, but after it the
f earth cracked in many places, and black,
1 fetid water spurted out in a furious man
ner. If one poked it tho spurting instantly
followed, just as is the case with the salt
! wells (in the eastern part of the province j)
and this explains how it happened that
lire followed the earthquake. Steep hills
sunk out of sight, and in their places
naught is seen but yawning gulfs, while in
other places the earih uphe ived leaving
hills many feet in height. Macy singular
i phenomena attended this earthquake, the
; full particulars of which will be anxiously
Statistics of the War.—The German
losses turn out, on a revision of the official
lists, to have been smaller than was first
1 believed. The total loss in killed, wounded
and missing, amounts to 47.6G2, viz:
2,107 officers and 15,224 men killed, 1,838
officers and 27,417 men wounded, and 18
officers and 2,000 men missing. Thegainr,
of the war, on the other hand, in trophies
and prisoners, are unusually large, indeed,
so considerable ns to be uniquo in history.
The Breslauer Zeitung, with patriotic
pride, enumerates the long list, which it
compares with our paltry acquisitions
in the Crimea, aud those of the French in
Italy. By this account, the last three
Prussian campaigns have been wonderfully
prolific of such memorials of victory, and
present a strange contrast to former wars.
Thus, at the Alma we took two colors
and two guns, at Inkerman wo lost three
guns, and at the storming of the Malakoff
we captured one standard and thirty-one
guns. The number of prisoners in the
campaign did not exceed 6,000. Tho en
tire spoils nf the French iv 1859 consisted
of three colors, twenty-six guns and 10,000
prisoners. Tho Prussians, on the other
hand, took at Duppel nineteen colors, 119
guns and 3,400 prisoners ; at Alsen, thir
teen colors, ninety-nine gutis and 2,494
prisoners ; at KootggratZ, seven colors, 101
guns and 19,800 prisoners ; altogether in
1860, thirteen colors, 20S guns and 49,
--000 prisoners. The figures of the late war
are more formidable still. At Spichren,
Pange, Groyelotte, Yionville, I.Tlallu and
Bapaume, indeed hardly any trophies were
But at Wissembourg 2 colors, 1 gun
and 800 prisoners were captured; at
Worth, 2 eagles, 34 guns, 6 mitrailleurs and
4,000 prisoners ; at Beaumont, 8 eagles
and colors, over 50 guns and 20,000 pri
soners ; at Sedau, 400 guns and mitrail
leurs aud 80,000 prisoners, with all their
colors ; at Metz, 56 eagles, 600 guns and
mitrailleurs and 170,000 prisoners. Alto
gether, exclusive of the capitulation of
Paris, the late war has yielded over 120
eagles and colors, 0,400 guns and 374,995.

Movement of Operations Southward.
The New York correspondent of the
Philadelphia Record, writing under date of
June Ist, says:
"There is considerable emigration of
mechanics and others to North Carolina
from tbis city, through means of specula
tive land companies, who havo bought
cheap tracts nnd divided them up into smafi
farms and village lots. Tho settlers who
passed last summer and winter there all
write favorably, and have given a good im
pulse to oilier adventurers. There is,with
out doubt, a splendid field for settlement
and prosperity in the South, and the plan
adopted of settling in colonies, where ihe
advantages of schools, churches and society
cau be at once roalized, abolishes all objec
tions hitherto offered against emigration lo

A Girl Gets Mad and Hangs Her
self. —Miss Lucy Severson, a young wo
man about twenty-two years of age, com
mitted suicide yesterday by hanging her
self in a piece of woods u?ar the residence
of her parents, on the State road iv the
town of Kirkwood, uot far from the old
Stanley tavern stand. The young woman
was missed by her parents during the fore
part of the afternoon, and toward even
ing search was made for her, and her
body was found suspended by a rope to
the limb of a tree. It is supposed that
her destruction was the result of a bad
temper, and in a fit of anger she did the
rash act by climbing into a tree, fastening
the rope around her neck and a limb, and
then jumping off.— Binghamlon (N. V.)

"We," nays the Austin (Texas) State Ga

Decline in Provisions.—Tbo oomuiis

for Saturday :
"Orders continue to be filled generally at I}>i
cents for shoulders, o®9*4 cents for rib sides,
and DX cents for clear rib do. j but lower
prices aro being made in some instances.
Hams range from 12>£ to 16 cents, as lo quali
ty. Lard dull at 10*4 cents for Western."
Shoulders before long will be retailed here
at "sixpence," and lard at "njnepenoe" per
pound. Fresh meals will also have to come
down in consequence of the decline in the
prices of live stock. We have once more en
tered upon an era of cheap subsistence, coupled

That Monkey.—Perhaps it is, aud per
haps it ain't, because we look like a monkey,
that we havo taken such a fancy to that ono of
Scammell's, bnt we can't help from calling to
see him occasionally aB we pass. We have
already told you how he can drink a julep
equal to a human being, and how drunk ho
can get; but we believe we havo not yet told
how he can light a match. This morning we
were entertained by him fur some time, having
nothing else to do, and returned to our sanc
tum feeling soro from hearty laughing.
Give him a match, and he will attempt to
light it with his paw; failing in this, he brings
bis teeth into requisition and be soon has-.
burning match in his hand-like paw. The
amusing part of it is to see how expert he is
in keeping it from burning him. In biting
the end, he uses the jaw and not the front
teeth, as would be expected, therefore he must
hurry up or lose hie whiskers. We saw him
light half a dozen matches without once
singing a bair. Altogether he is a highly in
telligent tnonkey, besides being an uncom
promising Democrat. Thia ia strange when
we consider his color !

Democratic Malionity.—Within the
past week an effort was made to have indicted
by the Henrico court grand jury a Republican
ollioe-holder of that county, charging him
with malfeasance in ollice, but which failed, as
it should have done, there being Demoorats of
euilicient sense of justice to tn'Jfy the trutb.
This effort can De traced home to a Demo
crat, who holds oflice under a Republican
principal, and the motive .is clear that be
would like to have had him removed so as to
secure the place for himself.
Without blaming him for holding ollice, if
he can get it, under a Republican, we have
yet to see a Democrat kind enough to give one
of ns a situation, and we do not hesitate to say
that Mr, Democrat ought to have a new Re
publican broom at his beels, and be swept out
so far, that the winds uf Republicanism would
never blow over him again.
That it is thus, we know; but that il should
thus remain longer, wo cannot imagine.
SOB COR RESPONDENT "OCCASIONALLY.'
i the Statu Journal should live and be
read by evorybody we verily believe; that i

terest is given it by our Petersburg corrcs
pondent "Occasionally," we are satisfied • so
then, in order that "Occasionally" may be
heard from, Mr. Greene, tbe postmaster a
Petersburg, and to accommodate the local in.
terests of both here, thero, and Norfolk, has
asked the Postmaster General to give us a loea
mail on the train leaving Petersburg nt II
o'clock A. M.
We unite with him in tbis request mot
cheerfully, promising the P. M. General that, i
he will grant our request, we will do all in our
power ia 1872 to beat the Democrats, thereby
giving him a show to retain his oflice. We
know if they beat us, our very staunch Repub
lican friond Cresswell, would be politely re
quested to "step aside."
