THE NEW DEPARTURE v.. THE OLD.
In the history of this country is it not
the strangest fact that the constitutional
opinions of the leaders of the Democratic
party in the .South underwent, in the course
of a few years, an entire change, from the
wildest latitudinarianism to the most rigid,
strict construction ?
In view of recent developments and the
"New Departure," it may not be uninter
esting to the reader to notice the contrast
between the former views of the "nulli
flers," of the State of South Carolina, anil
their State Rights doctrines at a subsequent
From a reply to a certain series of "rad
ical essays," published in the State of Gooi -
gia, in 1821, is the following extract ascribed
to the pen of Mr. M'Duffee, of South Car
"What security, then, did the convention, or In
other words, the people of the I Tnited States pro
vide to restrain their functionaries from usurping
powers not delegated, and from abusing: those
with which they are really Invested ? The con
stitution will tell you that it is Ihe real security
they have provided.
"It is the responsibility of the officers of the
Oeneral Government, not to the State uuilic.ii
Ues, but to themselves, the people. This, ami
this only, is the great conservative principle,
which lies at the foundation of all. our political
institutions, and sustains the great and glorious
fabric of our liberty. This groat truth ought to
be kept in constant and lively remembrance by
"The States, as political bodies, have no origi
nal, inherent rights. That they have such rights,
is a false, dangerous and anti-republican assump
tion, which lurks at the bottom of all the reason
ings In favor of State-rights."
This "New Departure" is not the only
instance of a total revolution of opinion in
the history of our public men, but there
is a difference in this: that while in the
past the change has been gradual, and
brought about by successive steps, this la
ter movement of a portion of the Democrat
ic party has caused surprise and consterna
tion, in their own ranks, aud virtually ac
knowledges to the whole world either one
of two things : that they have been insin
cere in their professions and principles in
the past, or are so now. With what a
sense of deep humiliation must they regard
their past record or their present course!
Their object is too evident—their own
greed and ambition has betrayed them.
Hunger for office, with a determination to
rule or ruin, has led them to commit this
step,'which of all others exhibits their weak
EDUCATION OF THE COLORED RACE.
No sign is more cheering than the efforts
to secure a.better education for the colored
people of this country. In the South, since
their emancipation, this unjustly-treated
people have shown a most commendable
desire to improve their minds by attending
schools, in which they might enjoy some of
the blessings to be derived from mental
Through the aid of the Freedman's Bu
reau, the assistance of benevolent associa
tions in the Northern States, the Peabody
fund, and other agencies, much has been
done in their behalf, and yet much remains
We have read with much interest the ac
count of the closing exercises in the Univer
sity of Atlanta and the report of the board
of visitors appointed by the authority of the
State. Georgia has conferred a grant of,
eight thousand dollars a year upon this in
stitution, and we may truly say that the
grant reflects credit upon the Legislature
that made it.
The report of the board of visitors is a
strong testimonial as to the capability of the
black race for literary culture.
The members of the visiting board are
nearly all native Southerners; they are
among the leading minds of the State, and
most of them are identified with the Dem
ocratic party. Ex-Govemar Brown is well
known as Oovernor of Georgia during the
war. Judge Douglass is the present judge
of the Superior court. Mr. Hemphill is
publisher of the Constitution, the most in
fluential Democratic paper in the State. —
Mr. Scruggs is editor of the Atlanta Netc
Bra. Judge Dunning is postmaster of At
lanta and State Senator.
The true democratic doctrine is not to
trample down any race, however humble,
but by public education and by just laws
to try to elevate all classes and conditions
of men. _
NATIONAL BUREAU OF EMIGRATION.

Jeff. Davis, in his mad talk throughout the

The ovations given him, and the applause

Ford, living near Fancy Hill, fell into a tub

and while absent, the child, which was
about ten months old, crawled out and
climbed up on a tub and falling over head
foremost, was past resuscitation when
found by the mother. This case should be
a warning, as about many houses there are
facilities for just such accidents to little

not more frequent.— Lexington Ouzelte.

called out, when a pitched battle ensued
between them and the negroes, the latter
using stone, and the former bayonets and
the butts of their guns, being forbidden to

of the Arlington, Mr. Thomas White, was

To the Villi Council — Arc the I'acemciils
of Richmond for Ihe Use of the Citizens or
for Vehicles ? —Citizens have rights as well
as baby-carriages. Being one of the first,
and the avowed enemy of the latter as at
present controlled, we ask the City Council
tf there is not already a law, to make one
as early as pof S.ble, to govern the running
of these trams, so as lo prevent the crip
pling of somebody's baby, or the thrashing
of some impudent nurse, at a cost of ten or
twenty dollars to the one who does it.
People cannot and will not submit to be
ing driven front the pavement by these ra-
Eidly increasing nuisances, nnd then abused
y impudent negroes and white women, be
cause they didn't break their necks to hur
ry out of the way. They are complained
of every day by citizens who have other
matters to attend to besides zig-zagging
along our streets to get. out of their way.
If one asks to be spared the pains of hurry
ing from their front, he or she is assailed by
abuse from the muses, w Inch must be sub
mitted to, or a choice of being dragged be
fore Justice White.
We beg the City Council to pass a law
confining these carriages to one side or the
other of the pavement, or to the middle, if
preferred, or the whole of it if necessary ;
but let the people know that carriages hare
riglds which they are bound to respect.
Not satisfied with part of the sidewalk,
they are frequently seen three and four
abreast, occupying the whole of it, much to
the disgust of everybody who are thereby
driven into the streets.
AYe propose, if nothing else will do, that
every business man in tlie city buy one of
these nuisances, (it is not necessary to have
the baby in it,) and push it along the pave
ment ahead of him. He will then be shown
some respect by the others, and everybody
be compelled to give him the pavement.
We predict Hint unless this provoking nui
sance is not abated, that somebody's
darling is going to get hurt, not intention
ally, but in the following manner; Some
body's shin will get bruised, or their toes
mashed, by being run over or against by
one of them, when they will attempt to ex
postulate with the ladi/ conductor, where
upon somebody will get such an abuse, as
will induce somebody to administer a well
deserved thrashing to the aforesaid con
ductor. While the skirmish is going on,
the little darling in the carriage may be up
set, trampled upon, and crippled for life.
To mothers, who love their little inno
cents, we would appeal in time to save them
from anxiety, and warn them that their
carriages and nurses are growing more
rapidly in numbers and impudence than our
city limits will stand, and they had better
come together, if necessary, and regulate
their running and conduct, or somebody
will get hurt, then somebody will say some
body else was a cruel wretch.
When a class of colored people, like
many we meet every day iv the city, learn
to respect the rights of the public and its
citizens, they may then claim that theirs
shall be respected; but until they learn
this important lesson, we are not surprised
that white people feel unkindly towards
many of them.
A Hiatal Mother on Adams Street. —
Some time ago we called attention to a wo
man in this city who has become notorious
fur the cruel manner she whips her children,
and hoped our notice would attract suffi
cient attention from her to correct her bru
tal conduct. She is a resident of Adams
street, between Leigh and Jackson, and,
by her inhuman conduct, keeps the neigh
borhood constantly annoyed and excited.
Last night, while passing the neighborhood,
the groans and cries of her child, as she
tortured him, attracted the attention of
passers-by, until quite an excited crowd
gathered to listen to the appeals of the
scourged. All pleadings tell upon the
listless ears of the fiend, who nev
er ceased her lashing until -exhausted.
We call the attention of the police to this
woman and her conduct, and ask them to
interfere in behalf of the little boy.
Stan and Hone Drowned at Rocketts, —
About six oVlock yesterday afternoon, a
worthy and industrious colored man, who
has been employed for a number of years by
Robert Kerse, Esq., drove a horse attached
to a cart into the edge of the river, near the
sugar refinery, to water him. The horse
took fright and suddenly plunged into the
channel of the river, where he was drown
ed. The colored mini attempted to save
the horse by jumping on his back but be
coming entangled in, the harness, or by oth
er means, he, too, was drowned. At the
time of writing this, neither the body of
man or horse has been found. He was a
great favorite with all who knew him,
standing high as a man of worth and integri
ty. His sudden death is deplored by none
more than l*y Mr. Kerse, who knew him
well, and to whom he was invaluable. We
have been unable to learn the name of the
Fair Play. —The Amen News, claiming
an admiration for wearing this bright jewel,
we are glad to see it shining so brightly in
the following from its yesterday's issue.
Its brightness could be made more brilliant
by the statement that neither Mr, or Mrs.
Chahoon are in any way related or connect
ed with Mr. Dana, of the New York Sun.
She is only an acquaintance, while he is a
stranger to Mr. Dana. YY c make this
statement to correct the one heretofore
made, several times by the Nevis, that Mrs.
Chahoon was a relation of Mr. Dana:
Chahoon's Case.—ln commenting a few days
since upon an editorial in the New York Sun,
under this head, we intimated, in pretty strone
terms, that tlie writer was a relative or connec
tion ot Chahoon.
I ;Now, we are as fond of .jewels as any lady iv
the land, and amongst them we consider fair play
the. most brilliant and much to be deserved, and
always wear it proudly upon our bosom. In
that spirit, then, we will state, upon the author-
Ity of Andrew Washburn, Esq., and Colonel 1).
B. Parker, that Chahoon is neither a connection
nor relative of the writer of the article in ques
tion, and that he has no acquaintance with him.
Reconsidered, —Last Sunday night, De
tectives Wren and Dabney arrested Lillie
Bennett and Bettie Anderson, upon the
charge of having stolen a gold watch and
£'2"> in currency from Joseph Roberts.
The case was tried by r Justice White on
Tuesday, who sentenced Bettie Anderson
to jail for three months as the thief, and
Lizzie Griffin for the same length of time
for having received the watch, knowing it
to he stolen.
A new trial having been granted, the
case was heard again this morning by Jus
tice White who was unable to decide as to
the guilty parties from the introduction of
new testimony ; whereupon he discharged ;
the whole party from custody.
Henrico Count// Court. —This court was
engaged to-day in the trial of Robert H.
Allen, who is charged with aiding and en
couraging the prize-fight that took place in
the county some weeks since. Colonel I.
11. Shields appeared as counsel for Allen.
This trial was in progress when our re
porter left the court-room.
Mr. Berne, bondsman for Charles Dough
erty, came into court and surrendered him.
There being no other security offered, he
was remanded to jail. The cause of Mr.
Berne so doing, we understand, is that he
is about to leave the city ; therefore he could
not be responsible any longer.
P. S.—Since writing the above, we learn
that Allen has been adjudged guilty, and
sentenced to pay a tine of i:i<)o and cost,
which will amount to about $ 10, making a
total of $:;!<>. _
Sensible Hied. —Near New Bridge, a
short distance below the city, live a family
who are the owners of a remarkably sensi
ble mocking bird. This bird will leave
hone every morning, wandering through
the woods, but returns in the evening as
regularly as the night comes. It has a nest
in the yard, in which are three or four
young ones, and it will allow the family to
teed it and them from the hand. A short
distance off is a school-house, and this bird
will liy into the room and perch itself on
the shoulders of the children, and remain
with them sometime. It is perfectly tame,
and is of course highly valued by the family
in which it claims to lie a part.
Melted. —A man just passed our office
who was so faUthat part ol' him hail melted.
We ran to the door, but failed to discover
what had become of him. Upon close ex
amination, we are satisfied he was making
for Cerot's cooling establishment, but melt
ed mi the lop step. A small grease spot
and a thirty-live cent straw hat, purchased
from our friend Haase across the street, is
all that was left of him. The relics can be
obtained on application at this office.
Religious. —Rev. Dr. W. Berg, lately
front Memphis, has accepted it call from the
congregation "Kencseth Israel" of this
city. The reverend gentleman will be in
stalled as minister of this congregation, at
their place of worship in Mayo street, to
morrow at C:3O o'clock P. M. Rev. Dr.
Bettelheim will deliver the inaugural ser
mon in German for the occasion.
Republican Matting. —The Republicans
of Jefferson ward will meet at Metropolitan
Hall Tuesday, the 11 th instant, lor the
purpose of electing officers for the next
ensuing six months. It is essential that
all interested in the welfare of the party
should attend, in order to have a fair repre
sentation and a true expression of the ward.
Fighting on the Capitol Square. —Mary
Brown and her mother (both colored) were
arrested yesterday afternoon by officer
Cordkyof the Capitol force, for engaging in
a light on the Square. They were taken
before Justice Meredith, who imposed a tine
of 12.50 upon Mary.
Discharged. —Frank Johnston, Moms
Winston, and Thos. James were discharged
yesterday from the custody of the Hustings
Court. The two former were charged with
violating the registration laws a year ago,
ami the latter with contempt of court.
Ciril Docket.— The civil docket in the
Hustings Court will be called to-morrow
Dogs. —We hope no time will be permit
ted to elapse before the dog-catching con
tract is awarded some one, and that in
selecting a catcher care will be taken to
secure the services of some one who lives
in a neighborhood where these brutes do
most abound. \*it them, baby carriages
and impudent nurses, be thinned out as
rapidly as possible. Each and all of them
are abominable nuisances and a disgrace to
a community like ours.
Hustings Court. —In this court to-day,
William Wright, charged with assaulting
Joseph Hulcher with a spade, on the morn
ing of the 8d of June, was adjudged guilty,
and sentenced to ten days' confinement in

Dr. Sampson's Lecture. —It gives us
pleasure to make mention of the lecture
delivered last night by Dr. Sampson in the
Baptist chinch. We were pleased to see
so many of our citizens out. The lecture
was listened to with marked attention by
both old and young. Ilk description was
pleasant and instructive. The Opening was
a description of the length and breadth of
Palestine —its mountains, rocks, rivers,
lakes, animals, cattle, inhabitants, customs,
and products. He gave an account of the
water, which delighted the boys, as the
Doctor gave them some good instructions
in swimming, and urged them to try the
lesson the next time they went in bathing.
The most interesting part of the lecture
was the explanation of the expression iv
the bible ol the "land of milk and honey."
The entertainment was closed by an exhi
bition and explanation of the garments
spoken of in the bible. The garment, or
loose shirt, was of singular cut; the girdle,
male over-coat or shawl, together with the
sandels worn by the Turks and Jews in
the days of John the Baptist, were of novel
character. To-night, the doctor will lec
ture on "Jeruselani," and exhibit the char
acter of robes worn by the Lord Jesus,
with many other things which will be of
great interest to the bible reader.
Sewing Machines. —We had always been
taught to think that the best and most beau
tiful sewing machine, was the one which we
had been accustomed to seeing in boy-hood
days dressed in a neat calico, with rosy
cheeks and laughing eyes. We were guilty
once of the absurdity of falling in love with
such a machine, and would have taken it
home with us but for an objection raised by
the old folks, who hail something to do
with the moving of the machine from the
home of its birth. Our mind has under
gone a change.
Harding has on exhibition and for sale
the Howe sewing-machine, which, while it
may not be altogether so handsome as the
one above mentioned, still is very beauti
ful, and with a little assistance will out
work the blushing damsel, and at much
less expense. Call and see this wonderful
exhibition on the corner of Ninth and Hull
At a regular meeting of Stuart Lodge,
No. HI, 1. 0. 0. F., the following officers
were installed : N. G., Mr. T. Davidson ;
V. li., John S. Owens ; secretary, Joseph
B. Vaden ; treasurer, Michael Stine. A
committee of arrangements were appointed
to make arrangements to celebrate the first
anniversary ol Stuart Lodge on the 2d of
August. High View has been selected as
the place. We have been informed that
Grand Sire Stuart is expected to be with
the Lodge on that day. Stuart Ixnlge can
do things right, and if all is in good trim on
that day, we may expect a grand time.
Supper. —We are informed that great
preparations are being made by Manches
ter Council, Friends of Temperance, for a
supper next Tuesday night. We hope a
Cxi time will be had. The Richmond
dges are to be invited.
The little son of Mr. A.lkinson, who had
his leg broken by the kick of a mule, had
his leg rebroken again last Sunday, by his
crutch slipping from under him.

MAKIN'i; WIXTKII Bl t'THK.-One oi
our limners says The thili/as.: Firmer,
manages to have all his cows fresh in the
lull, instead of the spring. Being then
fresh, and iv their best condition, which is
Kept up by judicious feeding ef a mixture
of two quarts of bran and two oi' Indian
meal, twice a day, to each cow, combined
with Yellow Olobe mangels, they yield v
good return of butter when it: is at the
highest figures, and turn nut ol the stable
in the spring in line condition. When they
would otherwise naturally fall off in then
yield, the succulent grasses come in and
keep them fully up, and often with tin in
creased How of milk. The dairyman.thinks,
by such a plafl, he gets the better of our
cold and changeable winter weather, nnd
makes the most money nut ol his dairy in
the twelve months. His cows in the spring
look (hie, with sleek coats. This is probably
partly owing also lo the daily use of tlie
card, and access, in a well-sheltered ami
well-bedded barn-yard, to plenty of water.
Dnv Lakth VOH Bi:iii>inii.—R. H id
dings, of Illinois, saves the manure, and
adds to the comfort of his stock by using
dry earth iv the stables. To do this he fills
a stall or large bin in his stable during dry
weather, with pulverized clay, road scrap
ings, or common soil. With this he covers
the floor of each stall three inches deep, and
then places the litter 1,,r Ihe animals' bed
ding on it; by this means all tho mine will
be absorbed, and its wealth of nitrogen
saved, and such is the absorbing power of
dried earth, that one three inch flooring will
not be so thoroughly saturated in a long time
its to require replacing, lie says his ex
periment required but one bin of pulverized
earth to absorb the urine of ten or fwclw
cattle during the stabling season ; and that
two men with a team tilled the bin in one
day. One ton of the saturated earth is
worth more than the same weight of even
fresh-saved dung. The aggregate amount
of plant food thus saved from the stalls is
fully double, and in much better condition

has lived iv Baltimore about six mouths as
a cabinet maker.
In Maine ice is twenty-live cents a ton ;
