Thomas Carlyle says: "You will never
get bread and bacon by talking about it."
In all popular organizations, after the
first impulse, there comes always an inter- :
nal struggle. Even in the army, long days i
of inaction bring personal quarrels and in- i
trigues without number—the quarrels be- ,
tween the ins and outs, lint let the long- i
roll beat, and every man springs into line, 1
prepared to assault or resist the common '
foe. In the shock of battle, mean jeal- s
ousies and rivalries disappear. (
All intelligent commanders recognise the ,
danger of demoralization among idle troops, <
Precisely this lesson is taught by the histo
ry of parties, and especially of the Repub
lican party. < )ur danger in Virginia is pre- ,
cisely this, that the party is doing nothing, ,
or nothing adequate to its own numbers (
and powers, and the demands of the situa
tion. And we have intestine quarrels, <
strife and bickerings, because we are idle
and have nothing to divert us from these
childish employments. The remedy is ear
nest work and a union against the common .
enemy. AVliatever differences may exist as
to personal claims, all true Republicans '.
will agree upon the propriety and import
ance of several duties now long neglected. - t
Ist. That the party should be thoroughly
and minutely organized throughout the
2d. That a series of meetings should be
held at all available places in the State, to
extend a knowledge of Republican princi- a
pies and secure their adoption by the pee- r
3d, That newspapers, and printed matter r
of all kinds should be circulated, so as to t
bring within reach of every man, who can .
read, sound information upon all political t ,
4Hi. That a careful canvass should be
made, and promptly returned to the Cent
tral Committee, showing, as far as may be, °
the deficiencies and needs of ditfercnt dis- a
tricts of the State, that they may be sup- »
plied and remedied. This work, without
which no party can have its forces in hand
for a political contest, is jcommon ground.
To neglect it, is to forfeit every claim to v
recognition as Republicans. To this work
we therefore summon every man who pro- "
fesses the Republican faith.
Let the State committee at its meeting
first arrange a thorough organization. That
committee was appointed to do this very %
thing. If it cannot agree to do il, then it is
practically a worthless incumbrance upon y
the party. If il will not undertake this P
work, and attend to it primarily lo the ex- n
elusion of ccery oilier, until il has provided
emergency, then it is a fraudulent n
cheat upon the party whose work it has un
dertaken, but refuses to do. , ;
If the committee will not do.this work, c'
and do it promptly and energetically, we 1
shall then favor an immediate Convention of
all earnest Republicans to undertake reor- h
ganization. The Republican party is sound °
to the core. Its divisions are on the sur
face. There are differences ou questions _
nit vital to its existence, personal prefer- S
ences and interests, honest divergencies of b
opinion, that must he treated with mutual
tolerance. We cannot tolerate, however, ?!
... « ii
any indolent indifference, without courting j
and deserving defeat. - n
We will go for our worst enemy if he
will make the party strong. We will o
sacrifice our best friend if his advancement (>
weakens it. This we consider, simply com
nion sense in the conduct of party warfare. !,
We ask no man to support our paper even, c:
to the exclusion of others. If the National n
Virginian suits any of our friends better,
help circulate it, and catch some of its
earnestness, without absorbing its bitter- tl
ness. Support, also, the many deserving a;
local papers. a:
Work resolutely, persistently, energeli- Cl
cally everywhere and at all times, to en- .
lighten and convince our fellow citizens,
and persuade them to unite in overthrowing a
that monstrous and bloody cheat, which, in ti
the name of Democracy, seeks only to rob *
the people, and lo destroy liberty and civil- ( i
THE _ABOR~~UoKUKESS. "
We are exceedingly gratified with the
progress of sound doctrines of labor reform
among the friends of the workingmen s /
movement, as evidenced in the action of
tho St. Louis meeting. We have always '■
detested and denounced the barbarous and m
useless methods of strikes, intimidation a
and narrow fanaticisms, which characterize 1'
some phases of the labor movement, es
pecially in the Old World. ''
Our defense in this country against the \\
infection of this unutterably dangerous o
spirit, as subversive of the freest Republi- Jj
can and Democratic government as of the ,
most absolute despotism, is our intelligent '(
labor, now thoroughly organized by trades,
States and into general Congress, the latter n
being at present iv session at St. iAjuis. It .
is this body, in especial, which must plant *
itself firmly and squarely in opposition to
all incendiary attempts to ignore the immut- *'
able laws of nature. The right relations n
of labor to law, law in the broadest sense, "
is of even more importance that the right
relations of labor to capital. Naturally v
the many demagogues, vain and ignorant '[
men, whose only labor is frequently
to live without labor on the honest il
earnings of better people, seek to enroll s
themselves among respectable and honest J
Workingmen, and to win a seeming support |
for tlieir absurd theories of money, work, _
and government. One of the chief aims of "
the Labor Congress should be to make such J
men understand that there is no place for
them in its deliberations. The laws of na- fi
ture are as the everlasting hills ; instead of «
trying sillily to move fhe hills out of the
Way, right-minded men seek to cultivate j
ihem to the best advantage of man. Such j;

THE PATRIOTIC IUBBONMEN
It is proposed by the New York Ribbon
men to organize several regiments of Irish
malitia "to defend the country from ene- j
mies, foreign and domestic." These patri
otic Ribbonmen remind one of the story told !
of John Randolph: At a horse race, a |
blackleg proposed to bet with the eccentric i
Virginian. " But who will hold the !
stakes?" asks R. "Smith, here," replied
the sharper, pointing to his pal. "Very
well," says Randolph, "but who will hold
The Washington organ of the Democ
racy, in a spasm of contrition, says the
term carpet-bagger includes "many North
ern men, who, animated by the highest
motives, and not" the less high because
fairly selfish, saw in the desolated and rel
atively vacant South a field where good
might be done, and legitimate industry,
with its fair rivalries, pursued ; who went
there honestly to settle, and, if they could,
assimilate themselves —make themselves
integral parts of the social aggregate."
Thero are thousands of such men at the
South to-day, many of whom went there
as Democrats, but of whom social persecu
tion and political Ku-Kluxism have made
the staunchest of all Radicals.
Secketaky Boutwell, in answer to

press, anil deserves to be read and ponder

Church for Mr. Chamliliss. -'I'll, friends
and admirers of the Rev. J. A. Chambliss,
former pastor of the Second Baptist church,
have instituted a movement to build him a
church. Mr. Chambliss resigned the pasto
ral charge of his church from consciencious
motives, his investigations inducing him to
repudiate one of the distinctive features of
the liaplist ('iiiiiniunioii. One gentleman
has subscribed five hundred dollars, and
another the same amount to start the enter
prise, and there are hundreds who will con
tribute, antl thousands who will attend the
church when it is built. Mr. Chambliss
has returned from Nelson.

Juvenile Counterfeiter. —A number of per
sons were before his Honor this morning to
answer for keeping their premises hi a filthy
condition. They were lined according to
the merits of their cases ; after which they

The first criminal case called was that of
•I. .1. Sut! erlantl, proprietor of a livery sta
ble on Fir> -klin street, and Thomas Whit

the public street. From the evidence it
seems that Whitlock had sold .Sutherland a

liar, from which a fight ensued. The Jus
tice decided thai they were eipially guilty,
and accordingly fined each 85.
Joseph McCann,a pugilistic looking youth,
Was up to answer for trespassing on the
promises of John Minton. At the special
request of John, Joe was let off.
Win. Weedcn, a small colored 1103-, put
in an appearande to answer for attempting
to paass |S0 counterfeit note. From the
evidence, the following facts were elicited :
William, is employed at the custom-house ;
on yesterday he went to the store of Mr.
Harrison, 011 Broad street, where he oliercd
the counterfeit note. The Justice decided
that this was a case for the United States
authorities, and accordingly sent him to
Bettie Braxton, an African brunette,
charged with leaving the premises of her
husband, Win. Braxton, without his per
mission, and William for threatening to
send Bettie to a very warm climate. The
trouble in this case seems to be that Bettie
is in love with a gentleman of tho ginger
bread hue, who in her eyes is "moe of a
gem'man than William." Both parties
were required to give security forlheir good
behavior for six months.
Alice Mayo, Sarah Lewis,' Ellen and
Martha Johnson, four of the lowest order
of colored females, were up to answer for
assaulting, beating and cursing each other,
and in default of security were sent to jail
for three months.

house and "cussin" Mary Valentine a col
ored sister, failing lo show cause why this
was thus, was requested to leave $2 50
with the sergeant to be placed to the credit
of the city.
I'hi-be Dickinson, tho proprietress of a
small laundry, was up for detaining one
dress, valued at $:t, the property of Geor
giaua King. The evidence showed that

night the penitentiary store, on Thirteenth '
street, between Main and Franklin, was
broken into and several pairs of shoes sto- 1
lon therefrom. An entrance was gained by
forcing a bar from one of the back win
dows. .From the small amount stolen, it 1
is supposed the burglars must have become
frightened and forced to make a hasty exit.
The police detectives have been informed of
the affair, and will, no doubt, soon bring
tlie guilty parties to justice.
