TION
eons RircßLicAN State Central Committee 1
Or the Republican Party or Vieoixia,
Richmond, August 16,1871. )
fb the Votert of Virginia :
At a meeting of the Committee, held in this
etty on the 15th instant, it was—
Resolved, That the Republican voters of Vir
ginia be assembled in delegated Convention, in
the city of Richmond, on Wednesday, the -Tth
day or September, at 13 o'clock M. And it was
tr ordered, that the Convention consist of
nilrcd and thirty-eight members, to be ap
led among the counties, according to tne
ionment of the House of Delegates of the
Jonstitntion. The delegate, in every in
stance, must be a resident of the Legislative Dis-
It which he claims to represent. This rule Is
i applicable to Proxies and Alternates,
nmediately upou receipt hereof, Chairmen—
in their absence, the Secretaries—of county
..miltees will forthwith assemble their corn
tee, and lake such steps as wilt ensure a full
resentation to the Convention. Where noo
illation exists, Republicans will confer toget
and upon proper notice call a meeting of th
iple at a convenient time and place, for th
purpose of selecting the number of delegates t
which the county may be entitled. We recom
mend that the credentials of delegates, in ever
Instance, be signed by tho Chairman and Seer
tary of the convention or meeting at which tin
are selected.
We would urge that prompt and efficient nctl. i
be taken to secure a full representation from eve
ry portion of the State.
By order of the Committee:
H. H. WELLS, Chairman.
s-.n'i. F. Maddox, Secretary.
We are about to start a semi-week
paper, to enable our country subscribers |
obtain the market reports, political aiv
feral news, &c, more promptly,
'he Semi- Weekly will issue from th
cc. It will be of the same size as t
daily, and contain the freshest news up to
the date of issue, and a large amount of
reading matter. By this arrangement we
shall be able to reach distant subscribers
much more promptly than now. It will be
•specially valuable as a campaign paper,
and we place the rates low enough to bring
it within reach of all. Tho price, as seen
in the head of our columns, will be $2 50
per annum, $1 25 for six months and 75
cents for three months, with liberal terms
for clubs of ten or more. We rely upon
our friends to send us a good list for the
Semi-Weekly.
a necessity.
It seems to us, if our business men would
take a little time, and lay aside their ledg
ers, and direct their practical minds to au
inquiry into the political condition of this
State, they would see the necessity for a
change of men at the wheel.
If they would only remember that prinr
to the late civil war the Democratic party,
for many years, had charge of the finances
of the State; that it was it that fastened a
debt of nearly fifty millions upon our peo
ple ; that it was it that took the incipient
steps to rebellion and civil strife; that it
was a Democratic gun that called to arms
the avenging hosts of a nation's honor, antl
marshaled the lo3 r al sons of America in
one grand phalanx of irrcsistable power,
each of whom entered into their solemn
duty of brotherly chastisement, like God
frey, of Bouillon, with the Holy Lance into
the field of Ascalon, crying "God for tho
right and the just." They arose like
tbe infant Hercules, which, with great dif
ficulty at first, did throttle the Ophideaus
that crawled and hissed about his cradle ;
but they now stand, "like the angel of the
Apocalypse, with one foot upon the moun
tains of the East and the other upon the
waters of the Pacific," proclaiming to the
uttermost ends of the earth the downfall of
treason and the folly of Democracy. In
your ledgers, gentlemen, charge up to that
party the lives of your brave sons, the
National debt, the State debt, your wasted
fields ani blackened walls, your tears, the
terrors, heart-burnings and the gloom of
these wasted years of strife, and then credit
them—with what ? In vain have wo sought
for a credit, and if you invite them to bal
ance their account, they write "carpet-bag
curse Lincoln, Grant and the revenue laws.
When asked to pay the State indebted
ness, a creature all their own, they re
spond by a Funding BUI, the provisions of
which mako complete the ruin of the Com
monwealth, bankrupts the people, and sub
jects them to probable confiscation. And
yet wo see their ghastly faces from out this
ruin, crowned with impudence, and hear
their clamorings for a continued lease of
power. Shame should displace their impu
dence, and their only words be prayers for
forgiveness, and, if justice was their judge,
instead of mercy, they would be chained
to the rude coffins of their unfortunate
dead, and be condemned to hear, through
the long years of eternity, the wailings of
those who fell without repentance.
Change, the great purifier, is needed in
our political rulers in this grand and beau
tiful State, with her undeveloped and untold
wealth and resources. We need calm and
patriotic men to guide us out of this maze
of Democratic ruin, to undo the follies of
fools, to gather up the wrecks on our
storm-tossed shore, to utilize the broken
hulk and spars, crushed and splintered |
by reason of the false lights of Demo
cratic political wreckers. Let us hasten to j
recognize the necessity for a change of
advisers, the necessity for a "new
final one from the old blind aud infuriated
leaders who have delivered us into bank
«;y and strife, and amitl tlie brazen fu- |
f vituperation against Republicanism, I
iror to hide the folly of their reign,
but a moment, business men and farm- |
ers, you artkwis and toilers at the forge
political leaders.
: S
The chairman of the Boston I>emocratic
State Uoraraitteo has issued an address, in
which he says :
The present system of internal taxation, antl S
IK army uf tax assessors and collectors, is to bo
enilitl. and a scheme of taxation put In its place T
the least jxisstbly nunlensome to the business of
This reminds us of the fox caught in
brambles, and troubled with a swarm of s
flies, which a swallow offered to drive
away. The fox declined his offer, with tho
remark that another swarm, hungrier than
that, would take its place. The war has
placed the country in a condition when tax
assessors and collectors are required to
raise the means to pay our national debt,
and they are annoying enough; but like
the fox, it does not wish to exchange them
for the hungry swarms that Tammany and
its allies propose to put in their places.
The Democratic party, during the past
ten years, has l>ased its claims for the votes _
of the people of this country, lirst, upon
their opposition to the war policy of the
Republicans, and secondly, to the recon- J
struction policy of tli#t party. Now, tak- f
ing a "new departure" the Democrats say <
they do not propose to meddle with this j
work of the Republican party. They now t
have a new set of charges against the domi
nant party, antl base their hopes of success
on new issues which they seek to raise.
But this tacit admission that they have been
I wrong in the past is not likely to inspire ' :
confidence in their present declarations, t
So long as such men as Doolittlc, Pendle
ton, Hendricks, Fernando Wood, and Gov.
Hoffman retain the leadership, loyal men,
remembering its past history, will distrust
the party.
The article on San Domingo, from the
pen of Dr. S. (i. Howe, which we copy on
our third page, is a clear, frank and explicit
statement of tho relations of our govern
ment to the Dominican Republic, and will
commend itself to all who read it carefully '
and dispassionately. It exposes falsehoods
which nave been most industriously circu- '
lated, and will confirm the faith of those
who have been in favor of the annexation
of San Domingo to the United States.—
Those gentlemen who have supposed them
selves able to "whistle down?' this cpies
tion will find that they have over-rated their
capacity for work of this character.

QTAKKE'S DIXIE PLOW.
BY INVITATION OF MR. F. C. WILLIAMS",
of the county of Nottoway, a number of gentle
men ashombled at his rfVideme Saturday, De
cember io, to tost by pnuiii'tl experiment the
comparative value of the DIXIE PLOW, manu
factured by Starke & Qo., and any other that
might enter the Ueld of competition.
The plows were taken to tlie field at half
past two P. M., the followin*r gentlemen acting as
judges: V. W. Eppes, J. R. Williams, Robert
Scott, Jus. S. Gilliam, Win. T. Christian, Rich
ard Eppes, Dr. Damnjj, Siduey Graves, Walton
Sydnor, V. O. Wuhan's, O. N. Neay, aud .T. M.
Hurt. Mr. S. Graves and Walton Sydnor were
the principal plowmen. Mr. W. Sidhor working
ihe Watt plow, and S. Grave* 'lie Dixie—both of
whom handled them with masterly skill fund
success.
Thoseentt-rcd were the Dixie two-horse right aud
left-hand plows, and the Watt two-horse left
hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam
of the Dixie right-hand broke in two and w*os laid
aside, the contest being narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixit; right-hand, The soil first selected
was tt stubble loam witlumtsoil; but asthe plows
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 field where
tho soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with
a timothy sod covered with vegetation and with
straw. The plows here })e r formed their work ad
mirably, cutting and turning without choking.
As tlie Dixie was a new comer, as the contest
waxed warm most of the judges took hold of it
to test personally ita practical working. While
tliere Is no intention to do injustice to any, as
neither party had agent or representative pre
sent, and both plows did well, yet the trial, with
the award of the judges, is deemed of sufficient
Importance to the interest of agriculture to justi
fy its publication.
The award of the judges was unanimously in
favor of the Dixie on the following grounds :
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow.
2d. It cut a wider furrow.
Sd, It more effectually inverted the sod.
4th. Tho draft seemed to be no greater.
fith. The mechanical arrangement for altering
cut was deemed more simple and efficient.
At the conclusion of the trial some of the
judges were so pleased -us to determiuo to order
them for their own use.
J. M. HURT, Secretary.
I certify that the above was sent to the Rich
mond "Whig"' for publication by myself; that I
am not acquainted with Mr. Starke; that he had
never seen the paper ami knew nothing of its
contents, and was in no wise a party to the trial
of the plows alluded to.
January 7, 1871. J. M. HURT.
We, the judges iv the "Plow Trial," on the
farm of Mr. F. O. Williams, published in the
"Whig," hereby certify lhat it was directed to be
nent to that journal a* a communication by tho
judges who made the award.

Ido not believe in plow trials made by the
manufacturers themselves, but hope that every
farmer will at once make a full trial of the DIXIE
with every plow he can find, and buy that which
does the l>est work. I have been not able to supply
the demand, nor till my orders for sometime, and
must leave fl eld-trials where they rightly belong
—to themselves.

prepared to bear emphatic testimony to the fldel

PROTECTOR.
MRS. E. L. DANIELS'
STOCKING SUSPENDER AND l'Bf ITEOTOR
COMBINED, FOR LADIES,
AND SUSPENDER FOR CHILDREN.
Fastened and Adjusted with Backles, thus doing
away with all Ligatures, Buttons and
Button-Holes, Hooks and Pins.
Is the only article thus combined, fastened and
adjusted, for this purpose in the market. All im
itations are infringements on the paten i granted
August 25th, 1868, and will be so treated by Mrs J
Daniels' counsel.
This article needs no recommendation, for tt re
commends itself to every lady who sees it, being the
most simple, easily adjusted, and perfect for its use
ever introduced into the market.
AH physicians recommend Us use, and one
whose name is known and respected on both sides
of the ocean, buys and gives away largo numbers
of them to his patients, declaring that most var
icose veins, weak and crippled limbs can be traced
directly to the stopping of the circulation in the
lower limbs, (and consequently iv the whole sys
tem,) caused by the old ligature or garter.
Being made entirely of elastic it never strings
or wrinkles like cloth, but is as flat and smooth
after wearing for mouths as when first used, and
yields with every motion, thus giving eutire ease
to the wearer.
THE PROTECTOR ALONE IS WORTH THE
PRICE OF THE WHOLE ARTICLE
It Is unnecessary to remove the stockings from
the suspender except to change, anil it is really
less trouble than the old fashioned elastic. It
keeps the stocking perfectly smooth without tear
ing it, and does not injure the limb. Care should
be taken that the whole article is large enough
not to feel uncomfortable.
All orders or Inquiries should be addressed to
