OFFICIAL <:.VI.L FOR A STATE VO.NVEN
OOMB REPI-TIMCA* STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE 1
Of THK Rliri-BI.tCAN PAKTT OF VIHUINIA, r
Richmond. August 1«, 1871. )
To the Voters of Virginia :
At a meeting of tho Committee, held in this
city on the l.Vh instant, it was—
Rssoleetl, That the Republican voters of A'ir
ginia be assembled in delegated Convention, in
the cltv of Richmond, on Wednesday, the -J7tli
day of'Scpteinlier, nt li o'clock M. And it was
further ordered, that the' Convention consist of
one hundred and thirty-eight members, to be ap
portioned nmong the counties, according to the
apportionment of llie House of Delegates of the
.New Constitution. The delegate, in every in
stance, must be a resilient of the Legislative Dis
trict which he claims to represent. This rule is
also applicable lo Proxies and Alternates.
Immediately n)ion receipt hereof, Chairmen —
or, in their absence, ih- Secretaries--of county
committees will forthwith assemble their niin
miitcc, and take such steps as will ensure a full
representation to the Convention. Where no or
ganization exists, Republicans will confer togeth
er, and upon proper notice call a meeting of the
people at a convenient lime and place, for the
purpose of selecting the number of delegates to
which the county may bo entitled. We recom
mend that the credentials of delegates, in every
instance, be signed by the Chairman and Secre
tary of the convention or meeting al which they
We would urge that prompt and efficient action
be taken to secure a lull representation from eve
ry portion of the State.
Hy order of the Committee :
11. 11. WELLS, Chairman.
Sau'i. F. M.inaox, Secretary.
WE are about to start a semi-weekly
paper, to enitble onr country subscribers to
obtain the market reports, political and
rreneral news, _c, more promptly.
The SEMI-WEE—tV-will issue from this
office. It will be of the same size as the
daily, and contain the freshest news up to
the date of U-uc, and a large amount of
reading matter. Hy this arrangement we
shall be able to reach distant subscribers
much more promptly than now. It will be
especially valuable as a campaign paper,
and we place the rates low enough to bring
it within reach of all. The price, ;w seen
in the head of our columns, will be .*'_' "i 0
per annum, $1 25 for six months and To
cents for three months, with liberal terms
for clubs of ten or more. AYe rely upon
onr friends to send us a good list for the
Adroit as was the manipulation of the
re.x-nt Democratic convention, which met
at Assembly Hall; much as the wily politi
cians labored to hide the cloven hoof of the
secession—Demo: racy, the objects and de
terminations of the party are made as
clearly apparent by their silence, ashy their
utterances ; by their attempted conceal
ments, as by their ostentatious presenta
tions. It was fully demonstrated that all
pledges, promises and pretences, madw
from time to time by these men—that they
"accepted the situation" (their own phrase,)
and would for all time to come recognize
the equality of ail men before the law—
were idle breath, made only to deceive, and
disguise their real purpose.
What that purjiose is, may be seen at a
glance, and it is the same fell design as of
old—to rule or ruin :—
"Better to rule iv Hell than serin in Heaven."
is the leading idea with them ; the idea
which lies at the root of all the troubles
and disorders in Southern States ; for there,
as in Virginia, the aim of these would be
Csesars, is not to promote peace, secure
good government, and encourage industry ;
but to prolong tliscord ; that public opinion
may bo enlisted on their side, and give col
or of excuse for their platform of ven
geance—death to Radicalism. A story is
told of a Quaker, whose religious ten
ets forbade him taking even brute life,
but desiring to rid himself of a troublesome
dog without killing it himself, he said, "I
will not kill thee, but I will give tlice a bad
name," so he commenced crying, "Uaddog,
bad dog." Bystanders of course supposed,
it was a mad dog, and speedily dispatched
So it has been hitherto, and still is in this
State. The Secessionists are under re
straint and dare not openly avow their pur
pose lo kill Republicans ; but they adopt
the cowardly policy of the Quaker, with the
dog in the story, give them "a bail name,"
in the expectation that the bystanders will
curry out their wishes and deal death to
Radicalism. Now the plan of operations
has been the same in every Southern Htnte ;
a policy annouueed to tiie writer in 18G5 by
a Confederate colonel. The Legislature of
Virginia had then convened, prospects
were tint peace had really followed uncon
ditional surrender, and we spoke to him
hopefully of the future. He replied that
we were mistaken in our supposition that the
war ended at Appomattox ; the army is
I'ttrloughed, not disbanded, antl within Sot
years we shall gain our independence, and
all we have fought for and failed thus far in
obtaining. The very means pursued sub
sequently, were indicated by tlie colonel, os
tracism and persistent agitation, until, as
he expressed it, the "last Yankee was
Let it be borne in mind that this line of
policy, was adopted and announced before
a single colored man was a voter in i.ny of
the States which had formed part of fiie
l Confederacy, and while a Legislature, elec
led under the constitution of 18.50, adminis
tered that constitutional thecapitol in Rich
mond ; and it is perfectly clear that the pre
sent attitude of tho secession Democracy is
.not taken because the "black wave of
Radicalism" has thrown colored men into
places of trust, or "vile Yankees have a
voice iii public all'airs, or scalawags" arc i
patriotic and recognise Tacts, Imt was sim
ply a continuation of the old fntal "rule or
The contest still rages, and if results de
pended upon human efforts alone, they
might lie well considered doubtful, but
eternal justice wfll never succumb to
When such issues are at stake it would
seem strange that tlie selfishness of in
dividuals should jeopardize the result;
but it is a fact, deprofcsing antl disgraceful,
but nevertheless true, that men in this
century are like their ancestors, often caring
more for themselves than for principles.
While Republicans stand face to facp
with nn implacable foo, some are mad
enough to engage in struggles against each
other ; while professing allegiance to a
party whose cardinal principle is equality
before the law, some would apply tests
of a sectional character; while the nd
inini.sti-.ition Uciml.licnu- look to far pro
tection, and guidance, is exerting every
clfort to elevate th« credit, and faithfully
administer the finances of the country,
some seek place for emolument solely, or
perhaps for more dishonest purposes, and
lower the character and standing of tlie
party, upon whom they fasten anil grow
like Parasites, to advance their own pecu
These drawbacks lo success are industri
ously ceaselessly fostered hy our Demo
cratic opponents, and every man claiming to
ba a Republican who does not use every
means in his power to promote harmony,
to crush sectionalism, and rebuke mal
administration or corruption is an adversa
ry, not a friend.
Sf.xi'Al. Scih.nck, including Manhood, Wotnanltood,
and their Mutual Itdcrrelations, liove, its Laws,
&c, by Ptt.iF. C. S. Fowlkh.
This book treats of the relations of the
sexes with great freedom, but in a manner
which cannot fail to benefit all persons not
thoroughly experienced. The pure minded
will not object to tho author's frank treat
ment of questions which affect in the high
est degree the physical and spiritual well-
fare of all men and women.
Only the gross and sensual can find oc
casion of evil in pages which teem with
, truths that every parent ought to know,
and which they should sacredly teach to
every child before it is exposed to the ter
rible dangers which ignorance invites, in so
We are surrounded on all sides by the
pitiful evidences of men, wrought by that
foolish and guilty fastidiousness, which, till
within a few years, has excluded these vital
topics from public disscussion. It is time
now for those who believe in virtue, rather
than the apptarawe of virtue, to put away
the cowardly sensitiveness which dooms
one-half of our population to worthless
ness nnd misery.
Tho great effort of the author in this
book is to lift the sexual relation otit of the
atmosphere of sensualism into the sphere
,of the intellect antl moral sentiments. He
successfully proves, that thus, it yields )m
---, measurably more physical enjoyment even.
That when men and women will recognize
the great laws of their physical being a
healthier and better class of children will
.be born to bless and dignify humanity.
The whole matter of male and female
, Education, Love Making, Rules of Court
ship, Causes of Misery in Married Life,
I Parentage, Cultivation of Beauty, Mater
i nal Duties, Diseases, ana Restoration, are
- treated at length and with a fearless hand.
This book may be taken not merely as the
dictum of Prof. .Fowler, and a record of
i his vast experience and study, but also as
- that of the most distinguished medical
men and philosophers of our time upon
the purely physical topics discussed in it.
We heartily concur in tlie report of ope
rations and recommendations in the interest
cf the Hampton Normal and Agricultural
Institute, (which will be found in another
column), established under legislative sanc
tion, near Fortress Monroe.
From this Institute we expect great re
sults, and under its present efficient man
-1 agement, we do not fear atiy disappoint
ment of our hopes.
Theoretical and practical education com
bined, best fit a man for the proper dis
charge of his varied duties as a citizen ;
theoretical alone, may make scientists or
politicians; practical alone, may fit for effi
cient performance of manual labor; but
both combined make the most useful type
of citizens—the inventive, industrious,

of the Dixie right-hand broke in two nnd wh laid
aside, the contest being narrowed to Che Watt left
hand and Dixie right-hand The soil lirst selected
was a stubble loam without soil. but as the plows
were new, and did not turn lv consequence of tfte
roughness of the castings, after a short trial it
was decided to take them imounntherfield Where
the soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with
a timothy sod covored with vegetation and with

there is no intention to do Injustice. t« any, as
