Of th. Republican Party op Viruinia, r
Richmond, August HI, 1871. ;
_. the Voters of Virginia:
At a meeting of Ihe Committee, held In this
city on the ISth instant, it was—
Resolved, That the Republican voter, of Vir
ginia be assembled in delegated Convention, in
the city of Richmond, on Wednesday, the '-7th
day or September, nt 13 o'clock M. And it was
further ordered, that the Convention consist, of
one hundred and thirty-eight members, to he ap
iwrtioned among the counties, according to tue
njroortionment of the House of Delegates of the
New Constltntien. The delegate, in every in
stance, must be a resident of the Legislative Dis
trict which ho claims to represent. This rule is
also applicable to Proxies and Alternate*.
Immediately upon receipt hereof, Chairmen
or, in their absence, the Secretaries —of county
committees will forthwith assemble their com
mittee, and take such steps as will ensure a full
representation to the Convention. Where no or
ganization exists, Republican, 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 be entitled. Wo recom
mend that the credential, of delegates, In every
instance, be signed by the Chairman and Secre
tary of the conveuLion or meeting at which they
are selected.
We would urge thatprompt and efficient action
lie taken to secure a full representation from eve
ry portion of the State.
By order of the Committee:
H. H. WELLS, Chairman.
Sam'i, F. Maddox, Secretary.
the hands of others, couched in that lan
giage of sympathy and approbation, ever
grateful to jaded editorial eyes, and jarred
editorial feelings; but alas! the pleasant
epistles too often contain nothing but com
pliment. A story istoldofStephcnfiirard,
that an industrious truckman hail the mis
fortune to lose his horse, by its being acci
dentally backed off the wharf into the river.
110 was an industrious man—as an editor
must be—and he was a man of good r_
pute—and what editor is not ? so there
was much compliment and sympathy ex
pressed. To ono bystander, who was es.
pecially loud in his profession of sympathy,
Girard made his way, and said to him : "I
sympathize ten dollars with this poor fel
low; how much do you?"
■ *
Now this is the sort of practical sympa
thy we need, in addition to pleasant ex
pressions.
If ono question is more thoroughly un
derstood by all thinking men, than any
other, it is—that as the ".masses arc rulers,
they should be made enlightened rulers ;
as they have to pass upon questions of
National and State policy, they should be
made familiar with the merits of these
questions ; as members of a great politi
cal party organization, they should know
what their party has done, is doing, and
proposes to do; as members of civilized
society, they should be made acquainted
with each other, and be enabled to compare
what others are doing, and how they arc
I V 6 » fe
and instruct, as the public press; and no
where in the civilized world is there a wider
field of usefulness in this direction, or luore
urgent need of such services than in our
State of Virginia; nor has any time been
more opportune or important for such
teachings, than the present. We offer no
apology, because we simply perform a sol
emn duty, when we urge upon our friends
to take up this great work with us, and en
able us to gratify tho wish of one of our
pleasant correspondents—"put a copy of
our paper in the hands of every Republi-
But we desire to do more, and in this di
rection we aro making sure but slow pro
gress ; and that is, to publish a paper which
will not only reach every Republican, but
many who are not Republicans. We desire
thej_ei_o_; should know Republicanism, not
as the libelous caricature presented too fre
quently by our political opponents of the
press, but as it is— a living, active, prosper
ing principle ; founded upon eternal justice
and guaranteeing protection to all men.
When we look over the grand union of
States, and see the activity of our indus
tries, tho rapid increase of our National re
sources, the contented prosperity of o«r
people, the amelioration in the condition of
our busy artizans and laborers, and are ir
rcsistably led to recognition of the fact, that
all this happiuess was conserved, all these
industries fostered, all these ameliorations
in the lot of our toilers brought about, un
der Republican auspices ; sve arc proud to
be the public advocate of the principles of
that party; and excited to bo most jealous,
lest such magnificent results should be
jeopardized by s.upine neglect to defend the
principles which inspired, and the means
which produced them.
Looking (and justly) upon tho modern
Democracy as the old disturber and de
stroyer, (under the several new aliases it
lias found it convenient to adopt) the
State Jouknal will never hesitate to
expose its machinations, and its fell pur
poses. In this, we do not (as is the fashion
with so many of our contemporaries) at
tack or malign tho individual, but warn
and war against the party. We feel, nay
we are convinced, that the advent of De
mocracy to power at this critical juncture,
would be the exodus of peace and pros
perity. Such reactionary agitation and
measures, as are practiced and promised
by Democracy, would rekindle the fires of
civil strife Wealthy capitalists or
enterprising merchants or manufacturers
»f itself, and when all is stable and peace
ful it is not only able but prompt to ilo
so ; lmt when the lightning strokes of dis
cord are launched from the dark clouds
of civil commotion, nothing is safo from
tltcir blasting influence.
And if men of means suffer, what must
be the condition of those whose daily labor
must cam their daily bread. When trade
is threatened, tho opcrativo is tho first to
be sacrificed ; and not only does Democracy
threaten trade by civil agitation, but as a
party it promises, if placed in power, to
destroy our home manufacturers' interests,
by throwing our ports open to the products
of tho cheap money and cheap labor of
foreign countries. When that promise is
fulfilled the American artizan will find his
"occupation gone; " and he must suppli
cate to live; instead of living in happy in
dependence, bringing up his children in
comfort, and educating them so. as to cnablo
them to ascend even higher than himself.
We close with an earnest request, that
those of our friends who have so zealously
striven to place our paper "in tho hands of
every Itepublican in the State," will not
relax their efforts to let Republicanism be
known as it is, that others, who, as Re
publicans, sympathize with us in our la
bors, will coin their sympathy into sub
scriptions ; and that those who aro not
with va in pronounced politics, but yet are
true lovers of country, will read our paper
as well as those of our opponents, so as to
hear both sides, and adopt the ideas which,
on calm comparison, they deem best for tho
common weal.
ITorace 11. Pay proposes to utilize the
water power of Niagara Falls to propel
boats on the Erie canal. He is satisfied
that water power can be transported in
tubes for twenty miles at a loss by friction
of only one per cent. He is also sure that
an air-pipe can be placed along the bank of
the canal between Albany and Buffalo,
extending the entiro distance, and
at every ten miles attached to reser
voirs, to bo constructed as ordinary cylin
der boilers, and of such capacity as to sup
pi}* the propelling boats with their charge of
compressed air, with which they would do
their work. The air is to be compressed by
the force derived from Niagara. Mr. Day
and others are now at work upon engines
which will use compressed air.
Honey Bees were imported to the Pa
cific coast several years later than the dis
covery of gold in California, and it was
questioned whether they would thrive in
that region because they were not indige
nous there ; but they have multiplied won

product of vagrant swarms which have left
the parent hives of the domesticated insects,
is found in larg,* quantities throughout the

beauty and durability of their work, and to the
fairness of their prices.

STOCKING SUSPENDER AND PROTECTOR
COMBINED, FOR LADIES,
AXD SUSPENDER FOR CHILDREN.
Fastened and Adjusted with Buckles, thus doing
Qwny 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. AH im
itations are infringements on the patent granted
August 24-th, 18RS, and will be so treated by Mrs
Daniels' counsel.
This article needs no recommendation, for it re~
commentls itself to every lady who sees it, being the
most Simple, easily adjusted, and perfect fa- Un use
ever mli ■■duct •/ into tltt market.
All physicians recommend iis use, and one
whose name is known and respected on both .--ides
of tho oce:in, buy*, and givesaway large numbers
of them to his patients, declaring thai meet var
icose veins, weak and crippled limbs can be traced
directly to the stopping of the circulation in ihe
lower limb.**, (<""* consequently in the whole sys
tem,) eauscd-by the old ligature or garter.
Being made entirely of elastic it never strings
or wrinkles like cloth, but is as ilat and smooth
after wearing for mouths as when Aral used, and
yields with every motion, thus giving entire eiu.e
to the wearer.
TIIK PROTECTOR ALONE IS WORTH THE
PRICE OF THE WHOLE ARTICLE.
It is unnecessary to remove the stockings from
the suspender except to change, and it is really
less trouble than the old fashioned elastic. It
kee]w tho stocking perfectly smooth without tear
ing it, aud dues not injure the limb. Care should
be taken that the whole article is large enough
not to feel uncomfortable.
All order*, or inquiries bhould be addressed to
