the best-appointed Photographic Gallery iv the
South, has just been fitted up by Mr. W. (t. R.
Fbayser, at 1011 Main street, opposite the post
office. Mr. has spared no pains or ex

has succeeded one has only to examine his rooms
.and instruments to be convinced. His Dallmeyer

the conveniences for the accommodation of his

COLONEL ion N K V ANO THE PR*:**.
" The fifteenth birthday of the Philadelphia
- Press, which took place yesterday, has
i- been made the occasion of deserved com
,, pliment to that excellent paper and its
. We think no man in America represents
. f more truly what we may call, the chivalry
i of politics, than John W. Forney. He is
the "Knight without fear or reproach,
r worthy to wear the crest of Bayard or
* Sidney's plume of snow," whoso powerful
. blade, "keen as light and of subtle temper,
; has waved only to deliver innocence and to
t smite the wrong." Consistent and cnthu
• siastic in support of his party, he has never
s surrendered his independence, or sunk his
r manhood to secure place. The birth of the
', Press is a remarkable illustration of his
We well remember those dark and terri
-1 ble days of '55, '56 and '57 when slavery,
, reinforced by Northern allies, sought to
l plant its black banners by force, upon the
' fertile plains of Kansas and Nebraska.
When hordes of ruffians poured over
. the Missouri border to crush out the very
law which had left the question of freedom
,or slavery, to the ballot of the settlers ;
■ when the administration had recognized the
votes of tliese ruffian hordes, and cowed,
or purchased, by promise of Southern votes,
. proposed to force a constitution upon tho
. people, which organized mob violence into
law, aiiil.extiiigiiisht.Ml liberty. Mr. Buch
, anan had been elected, and tmder an im
plied pledge to the North, that justice
should bo done to Kansas. That pledge lie
violated when he refused to support Gov
■ ernor Geary, and later the Governor of his
own selection, Robert J. Walker, of Miss
issippi, in their attempts to protect, the puri
ty of the ballot and give to tho people a
Col. Forney was at that time the idol of
the Northern Democracy, and possessed
the especial friendship of Mr. Buchanan.
For him the best his triumphant party could
give was waiting. The great trial hour of
the administration came, and it could no
longer remain neutral, in the irrepressible
conflict, between slavery and freedom for a
continent. Col. Forney used all his pow
ers of persuasion, to put the government on
the side of freedom, by granting to the peo
ple of Kansas a fair vote upon their constitu
tion. He was overruled, Govi Walker re
called, and an attempt was made to crowd
the iniquitous Lecompton constitution down
the throats of the people by Federal bayo
nets. Forney wavered not a moment. He
went forth from tlie capitol inspired with
the spirit, that shook old Indpendenco Hall
in the days of '76. He established the
Press, through whose columns his burning
words fell on tho hearts of the people, and
ran from man te man, till their echoes re
turned in thunders, speaking doom to the
party that had betrayed liberty.
He has had his reward in the magnificent
triumph of the right, which ho helped so
greatly to achieve; in tho love and grati
tude of a great people, whoso confidence
he has fairly won; and in the success of a
great journal, whose counsels are nearly
always just and wise, and such as the
party of which it is an organ, will iind it
safe to heed.
The people of the South have no more
liberal, enlightened, and sincere friend than
Colonel Forney, and we know that thou
sands all over this sunny land will join us,
in wishing long life and prosperity to him,
and to the Philadelphia Press.
THE NEW YORK FERRY MASSACRE.
The investigation into the causes of the
late explosion in New York, by which
nearly a hundred lives have been lost,
seems likely to end, as usual, in smoke.
Being on the ground ourselves, we sought
al! sources of information, and spent seve
ral hours among the ruins with a party of
experts. Among tliese men there are
wide differences of opinion, colored no
■ doubt by differences of education and in
. terest. All investigations into the action
of matter under high temperatures, are
necessarily attended with difficulty at best.
But there is one lesson clearly taught in
' these fearful disasters, and that is, the ne
cessity of more strict accountability, and
more rigid inspection of material and men
engaged as public carriers. We are* told
that Secretary lloutwell will probe this mat
ter to the bottom, and this statement opens
to us at once the direction in which a re
form is needed.
Mr. Boutwell is thu finance minister of
the government. His whole time and en
ergy are required in administering that de
; partment. It is hardly possible to conceive
of a more absurd distribution of functions,
' than to add to the legitimate work of his
department, tho inspection of boilers and
machinery used iv navigation. The safety
of the public demands file immediate organi
i zation of an independent bureau of engi
neers, wholly removed from partisan ihSu
r eiice, to whom, under the most stringent
i regulations, thin most important interest
| should be committed. A careless or l>nud
' ulent inspection should be made a capita'
offense. Add to this a special enactment to
fix liability for life and property ,upon every
: officer of a company where negligence is
, proved, and we shall rarely record such ac
cidents in the future.
"THE tIIOLEaIA. '
Tho rapid and resistless march of this
terrible disease from Persia, eastward
across the continent of Europe, has brought
it already within striking distance of our
> shores. It may come with any chance ship
load of emigrants, embarked with tho germ
iv their blood, waiting only tlie unfavora
ble influence of ship-life to be developed into
the most aggavrated form. Such has been
our experience before, and every instinct of
self-preservation dictated immediate saiiita-
Iry inspection and preventative measures of
' the most thorough efficiency.
Absolute cleanliness ol person, clothing,
houses, out-buildings, and streets, must he
insisted upon. Regular and abundant
sleep, plain fowl, especially avoiding rich
and fatty articles, and using freely, ripe
fruits and vegetables, are points of great'
importance. All experience proves that
nothing is more fatal than the odor from
privies, hog-pens, and decaying organic
matter. Use dry soil in the privy abun
dantly whenever the slightest odor escapes;
the same in all foul places. Scatter lime
in cellars and around the house once a week,
and bury offal deeply in the soil. Don't
delay a moment to remove every exciting
cause of disease. . Avoid alcoholic drinks,
for in cholera times "death lurks in the
cup" more than ever.
If you are ailing, don't trifle with your
self by taking nostrums ; but rest and stop
eating, and if you need help call in a com
petent physician. With these and such
other simple precautions as science and ex
perience have approved, little fear need be
entertained of the cholera on this side of the

Attempted Burglary.—Between 12 and 1 .
o'clock last night a daring burglar attempt
ed to force an entrance into a dwelling-house i
on Jackson street, above Adams. His ',
efforts to raise a back window aroused the
inmates, and the cries of the ladies of the .
house from the front windows for a police- .
man induced him to beat a hasty retreat i
without accomplishing his designs. If he
will call again he may have a warm recep
tion extended to him, free of cost.
The Dog versus the Alligator. —ln speak- J
ing of the alligator owned by Mr. Euker,
we stated he had swallowed a favorite dog
owned by Mr. Euker. Since then, Mr. E. ,
has informed us there was a desperate fight !
between the two, but that if we will insist !
upon either of them Deing swallowed, he ,
prefers it should be the alligator. We re- !
spect his wishes, and now say that it was
the dog swallowed the alligator, and not the .
alligator the dog, as we first stated. We '
wish it otherwise ourselves, as we cannot ,
concede that alligatoi s are greater nuisances •
than dogs; and if the one owned by Mr.
Euker has a weakness for dogs, and a ca- ,
pacity for swallowing them, we would be
obliged to him to turn his "gator" loose,
and let him go to work on our streets.
The matter is so mixed we are unable to ',
decide which is which, but if our readers
have a desire to know the truth, it can be i
obtained from Mr. Euker upon application, j
Look Before you Leap. —lf Andrew
Tinsley, the colored man, who was yester- j
day arrested upon a warrant obtained by
Robert. B. Crow, charging him with rob
bery of tjtllM, had, instead of going his way \
rejoicing, instituted a suit against Mr. j
Crow, for damages for false imprisonment, ,
he would have made his crowship suffer i
for his hasty action, provided, he is respon- !
sible. We give Andrew Tinsley the infor
mation in order that he may avail himself ,
of his rights if he wishes.
Xot True. —A correspondent of the Nor- '
folk Journal, writing from Richmond, does :
not tell the truth when he says that we
have been industriously striving to cast sus
picion upon C. R. Roes in connection with
the late fire which destroyed his gallery.—
We do not propose to correct several mis
statements of the same letter, but simply
to place ourselves right. We said nothing
about Mr. Rees, but charged that a man
was seen to enter the door, with a key,
leading to the room occupied by Mr. Rees,
and that we believed the fire was the work
of an incendiary, and that the man who en
tered the door that night was tlie incendiary.
If the writer's object be to create sympa

Pythian Excursionists. —About one hun
dred and fifty Pythians, comprising dele

under the charge of Mr. Wm. H. Cardoza,
as chief marshal, left Richmond on the "2:35
P. M" train yesterday for Petersburg.
The Knights all appeared in the apron
regalia of the Order, and, as they marched
up Main street headed by Smith's brass
band, presented a fine appearance. The
party, upon their arrival in Petersburg,
were received and entertained by Ruth
Lodge at their lx)dge-room, and in the
evening were to attend a "hop" at Jarratt's
Hotel, where we doubt not they enjoyed a
most agreeable evening. The excursionists
returned this morning on the 5 o'clock train.

The "Jestis" looked fresh and fine, as if

Sergeant Chalkley was all smiles for those I
around, except for us, whom, he imagines, 1
have disturbed his hitherto quiet repose on <
his favorite seat. We, at a glance, disoov- '■
cred the cause —it was owing to the exhibi
tion of so much finery, indicative of numer- I
ous tines and plenty of money with which
to meet them. Alas for human caleula- I
Richardson, the clerk, who never smole I
a smile, was as sedate as usual, while the '
immense array of counsel sat bewildered 1
with the flattering prospects of gathering a
few of Mr. Lincoln's photographs. 'I he *
detectives and policemen were there in in
numerable quantities, all seemingly anxious '
to show off their blue coats and glittering t
buttons, freshly brightened, in anticipation
of the presence of a number of beautiful I
On entering the louzy, filthy, chinchy es
tablishment, kept so by a costive City 1
Council, our eyes fell upon quite a number 1
of closely veiled females, representing all i
ages, and whose dress represented distinctly I
all colors of the rainbow. So closely were
they veiled, we dare not express an opinion i
as to their beauty, but all of them exhibit- ■
ed a weakness for kid slippers with shining i
buckles, which mischievously peeped out ]
from beneath their skirts. (
The first case called was that of C. W. t
Tyler, who was charged with having a i
more than natural affection for M. W. Al- i
ley's "dorg." It was proven the dorg was
a worthless cuss, unable to pay his taxes —
a long, lean, lank hound, better suited for
the nitre-bed; but as Mr. Alley was de
votedly attached to him, the "Jestis" re- I
spected his love for the animal, and gave i
him in charge of his lawful owner. i
The important case which hail caused l
the presence of so many beautiful ladies, I
was that of Mrs. I.ouisa Griffin, charged t
with assaulting, beating, maltreating, and t
abusing Martha J. ltoe. Martha had for <
some time occupied the position of servant I
in the household of Mrs. Griffin, who |
imagined she discovered in Martha a weak- l
ness for her liege lord, Mr. Griffin, whom f
she supposed was similarly affected towards i
Martha. Prompted by the green-eyed <
monster, she determined to settle the mat- I
ter by giving Martha a good sound thrash- I
ing, and then, should she refuse to renounce I
her allegiance, she would be revenged by «
depriving her of mortal existence. l
Numerous witnesses were called and ex- i
amined, some of whom were emphatic in I
the declaration that Mrs. G. had beat Miss
Martha, and that when Mr. (J. attempted t
to quell the disturbance, even he came in \
for his share of a jealous woman's fury. (
Mrs. G. even went so far as to declare t
she would shoot both Griffin and Martha, 1
and then marry a car driver, as some lady
across the street had done. Good gracious ! 1
After a patient hearing of the evidence, 1
and listening to an amount of talk such as i
only a woman can furnish, the Justice lined i
Mrs. Griffin $2.50 and bound her to keep
the peace in the sum of $300. .
Mrs. Griffin's appearance was that of a ,
mild, modest lady, too attractive in her per- j
son, to be jealous of so small and unattrac- (
tive an individual as the plaintiff. Who ,
could be deceived though after the eloquent >
and learned argument of friend Moise, coun- ,
sel for Miss Martha. He exhibited his client
in the light of a wronged and injured young .
female, against whose'eharacter no breath of J
suspicion had e'er blown. The house was '.
deluged with tears as he pictured her sor- '
rows and wrongs—there were no dry eyes,
save those of the savage policemen who
never feci for anything or shed a tear of '
sorrow, except when a political change of >
municipal administration occurs. i
Col. Carrington, the counsel for the de- '
fence, in spite of his acknowledged abilitj'
and legal learning, was unable to make any
impression upon the minds of the assem
bled. The word "guilty" was bound to '
follow the flowing eloquence of the counsel
for the prosecution. )
At the conclusion of this interesting case
Elzey Payne, a flat-headed, grizzly-faced,
crop-haired, snaggle-toothed, cat-eyed, dir
ty looking creature, was called from the en- '
close of honor to answer the charge of :
beating his wife. Mrs. Payne, an un
healthy looking woman, wearing upon her
fuce the marks of honesty, came 'inward .
and testified that her husband was a worth
less, drunken orate, and that he seldom '
gave her anytliing to eat. His daughter,
possessing some intelligence, disliked to '
speak against her father, but declared that !
his treatment of her mother was such she '
must tell the truth. Detective Dan Wren !
knew him as the habitual beater of his .
wife, and that he liad seen him whip her j
while her six weeks-old baby was in her ;
arms. Payne has been up before the Jus- |
tice a half dozen times upon the same '
charge, and when last let off requested him
if brought up again to send him to jail and
After the evidence was heard, the Jus- J
tice reminded Payne of his request and in
formed him of his willingness to grant his j
request unless he could find security for
his behavior for six months. Payne could '
not comply, whereupon, he was ordered to ',
the chain gang for that length of time. .
We think a special gang, for all such
brutes should be formed at once, and from
late accounts, this city, aided by Norfolk '
and Petersburg, quite a crowd of them
could soon be gathered. (
Payne's case closed the proceedings this (
morning, leaving the sergeant in an ill hu
mor and the lawyers disappointed at the
scarcity of fees. '
A Xoble Soldier Gone. —Augustus Harry, i
who received a medal of honor for devoted i
services to his country from tlie United ,
States Congress, died yestenlay afternoon
at his residence at Cold Harbor.
For some time Mr. Harry has held the
position of superintendent of the national
cemetery at Cold Harbor, where, by his '
courteous conduct, he won the esteem of
The country, by his death, has lost one of
its noblest defenders and most devoted ad
mirers. Amid the clash of arms, and where
shot and shell flew thickest, Augustus Har
ry was found foremost in the ranks to de
fend his country's flag. His companions
iv arms will unite with us in regretting the
untimcty end of so noble a hero and so
brave a man. Peace to hi* ashes.
Won't Do It. — We don't care much, if
those whose business it is, won't cut the
grass on tlie square. Wo have called their
attention to it several times, and they don't
seem to mind what we say any more than
if we pelted them with grass. We have
tried kind words and gentle means long
enough to satisfy m that they do no good"
Look out next time for stones.
Local Xotes. —-A youthful colored cou
ple, whose united ages summed up a bun- i
dred and forty summers, were joined in the
holy bonds of wedlock at Ebenezer colored
church last night. The blush of youthful (
love and beauty surmounted the cheek of J
both bride and groom, while, the worthy
pastor rejoiced tliat he had given so much
happiness to the youthful pair. .
A picture of General Lee was sold to- ,
day at Cook's auction house for the sum of
twenty cents, and bought by a colored
man. How is this compared with the re
cent sale of the United States flag for J
$1.75 ? About even, hain't it ?
The policemen who was drunk yesterday
sends us word it is none, of our business, f
we dind't elect him and ain't got anything
to do with him.
An humble painter of this city was con- .
siderably elevated the other day while at i

to-night at their rooms. '
The City Central and the County Com
mittee of Henrico, (Republican) will meet

An Er)/ected Affair of Honor. —We have 1
been reliably informed that an affair of
honor between two gentlemen of this city,
is to be settled within the next twenty-four -,
hours. If the sequestered nook is not in
llenrieeo, we will be pleased to be on hand
and make a full report; but we certainly
can't go in that county. The -prize fight ')
effectually quenched our thirst for enter
prise in that direction. As is always the r)
case, a beautiful lady is at the bottom of
the affair. We hope to be able to give our
readers full particulars as soon as possible
after the affair is ended.
Manchester New* nnd (losaip.
liepublican Meeting. —ljist night, at the '
time appointed, the meeting was called to
order, and Senator Martin called to the s
chair antj James R. Monroe appointed sec
retary. The meeting was attended by all j
shades, colors and condition in life, as well J
as politics. Mr. G. R. Hauling wasjcalled, *
who addressed the meeting on the subject
of labor reform. He drew a line between r
the political parties and the working man's '
party—gave a short illustration of the work- *
mgs of both parties, and said there was but '
two, the Democratic and the Republican ; !
urged upon the mechanics and men of labor "
to look to their interests and to the party 1
that had done the greatest amount of good
for them, and give their support to the men c
that would continue the advancement of the c
condition of the working man, by education, c
relief of taxes and many other things that t
is essential for the prosperity of the coun- o
Major W. F. WorthingUm then addressed c
the assemblage in a very able speech, in
which the policy of the administration, tbe
acts of the last Legislature, and the opprcs- |
sive taxes imposed by the Board of Trus- .
tees of Manchester were fully reviewed. .j
Mr. E. S. Haw then followed in behalf of t
the L'ibor Cooperating company, of which j
he was president; and his statements were ,
indorsed liy Mr. Johnson, after which the .j
meeting adjourned. .
Adultery. —David Carrington, colored, t
aud Leroy Jenkins, white, were arrested t
yesterday, for adultery. They were taken s
to the Richmond jail, to be there held until
called for by the Amherst authorities, in s
which county the crime was committed.
The arrest was made by J. YV. Bronaugh,
deputy sheriff. v
Aecideid. —Thomas Stuart, while at work r
in the Graham manufactory, in putting a
water wheel in position, was struck on the
head with a roller, receiving a painful j
Beti/iiig a Woman. —Henry Turner, col- i
ored, has been arrested by ('(instable Mun
roe, for beating an old colored woman with
a rock. The parties live seven miles from
Old Foes in a New Fight.—Here s j
a voice from Alabama, which rings like the 1
blast of a rebel bugle sunnnoning the co- J
horts of secession lo a charge on the Union
We are now entering upon a political .
campaign that is full of the auguries of vie- *
tory. It is our own fault if the friends of c
the constitution do not win and deserve to "
wear its blessings and its honors. It can v
never be won by men who are eternally .
blubbering over ruin and hopeless defeat, j
and crying out "it is of no use to struggle,
we are conquered, all is lost." The battle
of liberty is never lost, except to people
who do not deserve il. To our own race it |
has never been lost, because our blood has '
never given it up under storm or adversity. °
If there ever was a people who were beaten a
in the field, but uneonquered in soul, it is
the peopleoftlieSoi.ih. They have shown
a fortitude, a constancy, and a courage in p
adversity that shines brightly in the com- I
parison witli their deeds in the field. j.
They have as manfully accepted the situ
ation as they fought to avert it. They have
exhibited a patience in endurance to which
there is no parallel in history. And yet no v
rack of insult, no tortue of tyranny has '
been able to extract from their suffering lips 5
one syllable of retraction of the right aud •
duty that inspired them to take arms.
They submit to the law of the victor, but
they would die before confessing that they 1
hail been guilty of the crimes of 'rebels' J
and 'traitors'." .
We can fancy, while reading Ihe above,
that vie sec the stars and bars saucily flying ,
and flapping in the breeze. That banner I
may do very well to infuse enthusiasm into
the Southern heart, but will not prove an
attractive symbol to the men who were ac
customed to catch their glimpses of itle
tween whizzing bullets and amid the smoke <
of gunpowder. i
Miss Lina Kdwin has very little cause to '
thank the people of New York for a i
generours support of her efforts to please
them. She struggled bravely against
adverse fate all last Winter, but finally was ,
obliged to succumb. She is now residing
at her estate in Virginia, making arrange- '
ments for another season, when she will <
again endeavor to enlist the good-will of
the public in her favor.
