7b the Voters of Virt/inin :
At a meeting of the Committee, held in this
city on the 16th instant, it was -
Resolved, That the Tlepublirnn voter* of Vir
ginia be assembled in delegated Convention, in
the city of Richmond, on Wednesday, the STtll
day of September, at 12 o'clock M. And it Wa*
further ordered, that the Convention ennuis! of
one hundred and thirty-iight members, to be ap
portioned among the counties, accord—la to the
apportionment of the House of Delegates of the
New Constitution. The delegate, in every in
stance, must be a resident of the Legislative I>i«-
Li-ict wliich he claims 10 represent.. This rule is
also applicable to Proxies nnd Alternates.
Immediately upon receipt hereof, Chairmen—
or, in their absence, the Secretaries—,r county
committees will forthwith assemble their com
mittee, and take such steps as will ensure a full
representation to tlie Convention. Where no or
ganization exists, Republicans will confsr togeth
er, and upon proper notice call a meeting of th*»
people at a convenient time and place, for the
purpose of selecting the number of delegates to
which the county may be entitled. We recom
mend that the credentials of delegates, in every
instance, lie signed by the Chairman and Secre
tary of the convention or meeting at which they
We would urge that prompt nnd efficient action
be taken to secure a full representation from eve
ry portion of tho State.
By order of the Committee :
11. H. WELLS, Chairman.
Sam'i. F. Maudox, Secretary.
We are about to start a semi-weekly
paper, to enable our country subscribers to
obtain the market reports, political and
general news, &c, more promptly.
The Semi-Weekly will issue from this
office. Tt will be of the same size as the
daily, and contain the freshest news up to
the date of issue, and a amount of
reading matter. By this arrangement we
shall be able to reach distant subscribers
much more promptly than now. Tt will be
especially valuable as a campaign paper,
and we place the rates low enough lo bring
it within reach of all. The price, as seen
in the head of our columns, will be $2 80
per annum, $1 -."> for six months and 75
cents for three months, with liberal terms
for clubs of ten or more. We rely upon
our friends tp send us a good list for the
the democratic t'o>ventio!v.
This convention, which met at Assembly
Hall and adjourned sine die on 3'esterday,
is styled by some "The Virginians in
Council," from which 'we arc given to un
derstand that it was composed of the crime
de la creme of those favored mortals who
were permitted by a kind Providence to be
born in Virginia instead of some less aris
tocratic portion of the habitable world;
hence, in their developed manhood, they
dazzle our menial vision, the "true repre
sentatives of the highest type of American
society," and the shining coup d'ocil "was
in no manner affected by the entrance of
the colored delegates from the city of Rich
mond," just as the brilliancy of the orb of
day is in no way marred, or obscured to
mortal vision, by the appearance of spots
upon its surface. Tt is not to be wondered
at, that a dazzled historian of this august
assemblage should inform us that "all stood
erect, conscious of tho proud .attitude /W.v
State had always held among the nations,
and feeling that he was portion of her fame
and grandeur;" and it is, therefore, less
surprising that our Governor shoidd sacri
fice something for the privilege of being
ungraciously permitted to bask in the
"presence," thinking, probably, tliat the
"odor of sanctity" might remove that dis
tressing taint of birth beyond ihe confines
of Virginia; for such a body of men must
certainly fulfil the poetic oilice of "stealing
(from the gods,) and giving (io ordinary
mortals) odor." Wo fear, however, that
after all his sacrifices, he will be ruled
against by The Virginians, on the princi
ple—tie ros non nobis.
!t would be the reasonable presumption,
that as the sun shines for ten thousand
thousand beneficent purposes, its mortal
prototj'p'e at Assembly Hall should dazzle
us for some one purpose of like character;
but we search the record of proceedings in
vain for a single expression of any senti
ment save self-laudation, and "envy,
hatred, malice and all uncharitableness"
towards the rest of mankind. The plat
form adopted, in fact, if not in word, was
that laid down for the convention by the
Whig— "Death to Radicalism."
The fiat having gone forth in the form of
a "Vermillion edict," which all who hear
must "tremble and obey," we are tempted
11 exclaim of this new Ca'sar:
"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world,
Like a Cokissus, and we petty men,
Walk under his huge legs, and poep about,
To lind ourselves dishonorable graves."
But seriously we tell these would be
revivalists of the rule of aristocratic tyran
ny, that they propose to do what is im
possible, even for them, great as we admit
is their ability, greater their audacity,
still greater their selfishness, and immea
surably greater their estimation "of their
own worth and weight." You may build
your "wall of adamant," and protect it
by an outer wall of proscription, but you
will find that Radicalism will justify its ap
pellation, it has struck its roots (radicals)
deep into the congenial soil of popular
sentiment, and from the "grain of mustard
seed" it has grown to a giant tree, under
whose friendly boughs the oppressed of .
this, and other nations, find grateful shel
ter from the deadly sun-heat of aristocratic
Years ago, Le roi villi, might be sufli- ,
cient to command obedience; but times (
be the form of proclamation, or it will lie
as itllc as a "Pope's bull against a comet." ,
When wi- look at the condition of public
antl private intlfest-h Wgiift, *wtleried|
as a State, wit_*a crcatej|
by tin- very men who controlled tie l>et_o
cratic convention; and her citizens op
pressed by private obligations contracted ,
before the war; when every industrial in
terest is languishing in a struggle for exis
tence, Hying for kM boybnd tnir li»fd*r(»y;
when enoupb strength is left to migrate to
a more hospitable clime, or finding "happy
dispatch" in the court* of bsriikriiptcry,**._oV
consider who directed tlie proceedings of
tlie convention, we are tempted to use the
"Woe (into ye
lawyers ; for ye bind men with burdens
grievous, and heavy to be borne, but ye
yourselves will not touch tliem with one of
la vain we look for any expression of
sympathy With the misfortunes of the peo
ple, which arc the result of their mad at
tempt to rule this country in their own in
terest, or ruin it if they could not rule.
Equally vain is our search for any even the
slightest siipgestion of measures to build
up the places, made waste by the fires ot
war tliey so recklessly kindled, or that
others, who are Both able and willing to
engage in the work, may henceforth be
permitted to prosecute their labors in peace.
The only response which is vouchsafed to
the cries of a distressed people, is death to
Radicalism ; but, as we before remarked,
it is too deeply rooted in the congenial soil
of popular sentiment; and all the conven
tions, of all /he Virginians, will not prevent
its growth, much less put a period to its
Hut while we do not fear the oratorical
thunder, or lightning hateof "the Virginians
in conference," we warn them that their
responsibilities ill the present condition of
affairs must be met antl discharged, or the
people, of whose rights and burdens they
would make playthings, will call them to
account, in louder tones than those to which
Assembly Hall yesterday reechoed.
It is useless to attempt to shift responsi
bility for debt antl disaster upon "military
satraps" or "Yankee adventurers." The
record speaks for them, and it tells in lan
guage none can gainsay'that the most eco
nomical administration of State expenditure
was that of J 867, 18(18 and 18<S9. The
funding crudities of ISfifi emanated from
"the. Virginians," and from them only ; and
the gigantic funding imposition of 1870 em
anated from the same men, and "madness
ended what lolly had begun."
Had these same men, when permitted by
a too generous, but justly offended govern
ment, appreciated, as (in those days) did
Hon. J. H. Haklwin, that they hmlforfeit
ed all, by making bloody war against their
lawful government, and had the decency to
be content with the temporary suspension
of ollicial emolument, the fourteenth
amendment, if passed by the ■ Virginians sit
ting in General Assembly, would have
made a broad and open highway to partici
pation in the national councils, and the re
construction acts would not have been com
pelled to be enforced, so far as Virginia
was concerned. If any (and many well-in
tentioned persons do) think these acts had
had an injurious effect upon Virginia, let
them blame the real culprits, and the
names of many of them will be found on
the roll of delegates to this Democratic con
Had these same men adopted the thir
teenth amendment in good faith, and not
as those—"who keep theword of promise
to the ear, but break it in tho hope"—had
they recognised as a fact in the social poli
,ty of this Republican country, that a man
cannot be slave and free at the same time ;
.- had they shown a decent sense of that
mountainous debt of gratitude which they
owed to the colored "frcedman," incurred
for the industrious tillage of their lands and
the faithful guardianship of their families,
(whose natural protectors were fighting to
make bondage the perpetual heritage of
these patient toilers and watchers) and erect
ed school houses, instead of whipping-posts
for his education, (tor the lack of which they
were directly, morally, and practically re
sponsible); lrnd they legislated so as to pro
tect his nascent lights as a free laborer, not
as a slave drudge, instead of passing
vagrant laws, and laws regulating con
tracts, leaving him helpless against
the cupidity of his former masters ;
another aud controlling reason why the
reconstruction acts should be made appli
cable to Virginia, would have been re
moved. To have left tho frcedman to the
legislative and judicial mercies of his for
mer master, would have sunk him into
deeper degradation, and more absolute mis
ery than were his lot as a slave; and in
this connection we cannot hut animadvert
upon the hypocriey of "the Virginians in
conference," "with only two or three dis
senting voices," receiving with "most en
thusiastic demonstrations of applause,"
Abrani Hall and five other colored men as
delegates to their bodj\ It is truo "the
round roof of the rink showed no signs of
falling in," but if the day of miracles had
not passed, and St. I'eter had questioned
these enthusiastic chcerers, as he did Ana
nias anil Sapphira, more than one who had
just "stood erect, each conscious, &c.,"
would have fallen down, and never risen
more in life. Let Abram Hall and his five
confederates read what the JJispalch saitl
only a few days ago, in reference to the
political rights of his fellow colored men,
that it was opposed to their electing even
one person to represent the eolnreil voters of
Richmond on the floor of the House of
Delegates, and in the future act as men or
hirelings,, whichever character best suits
them. So ttu' as luiimadversions hurled
against "all the Yankees in Christendom,"
(which remark, by the wa)', is an unlooked
for, perhaps inadvertent concession, that
Yankees do exist in Christendom,) they are
beneath contempt; so far as aspersions cast
upon the government, which has dealt so
leniently with them, they are purposed
misrepresentations or wilful falsehoods ; so
far as liewailing the distresses of the times,
they are primarily and solely responsible
for those distresses.

blessed them (which talents, in the majority
of cases, have hoen cultivated at the cost of I
the working farmers in the State) been up- |

As would almost make the angels weep."
Wine Making.—We print in to-day's
paper a very valuable article from tho Chi
cago Prairie Farmer upon the manufac
ture of grape wine. As this is the season
of ripening grapes in that portion of our
State wliere they aro grown, and many per
sons arc unfamiliar with the process, we
have thought it worth while to present it.
Pure wines are difficult to procure, and
are often needed for medicinal purposes.
Following the instructions given, a home
supply may be made of all surplus grapes.

Thoseenlured were the Dixie two-horse right and ,

hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam
of the Dixie right-hand broke in two and was laid
nelde, the contest being narrowed to th* W»tt leflf .
hand and Dixie right-hand. The soif first selected !
was a stubble loam wtthontsoil; but as the plows J
were new, and did not turn in consequence of the
roughness of the castings, after a short trial It
was decided to take them into another Held where
the soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with (
a timothy sod covered wilh vegetation ana With ,
straw. The plows here performed their work ad- ,
mirablv, cutting and turning without choking. ,
As the Dixie was a new comer, as the contest ,
waxed warm most of the judges took hold of it ,
to test jiersonaUy its practical working. While
there is no intention to do injustice to any, as
neither party had agent or representative pre- 'I
sent, and both plows did well, yet tho trial, with •
the award of the judges, is deemed of siitlieieni
importance to tho interest of agriculture to justi
fy its publication.
The award of the judges wan unanimously In
favor of the Dixie on the following grounds:
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow. ' >
2d. It cut a wider furrow.
3d. It more effectually inverted the sod. i
4th. The draft, seemed to be no greater.
