ANOTHER NEW DEMOCRATIC Dl.l'Ali-
There was a time, ami not lung ago,
when men of all parties, as well as the pub
lic journals, of every shade of opinion, pub
lished in the State, professed to be anxious
to aid in the work of promoting the physi
cal prosperity of Virginia. We say pro
fessed, because even then, the policies which
some of those journals pursued was so en
tirely at war with the best interests of the
State, as to awaken strong suspicion that it
was only profession and pretense, and not
an honest desire to build up waste places
or to invite emigration and capital—recent
developments have, however, changed the
whole aspect of affairs. It is now evident
that the fiend which inspires partisan hate,
so possesses the leading Democratic jour
nals aud blinds their sight,as to make Hum
enemies to the Stale.
The issue has been fairly presented to
tliem. Virginia and the Democratic party
are squarely and vitally antagonized; they
have been compelled to choose between
them, and their choice has been deliberate
ly and finally made. Ignoring Virginia,
they place themselves on the .side of party
and a;_ainst State and country, and to-day
tho Republican party and its press are the
only true friends in politics which the State
.Vc make no account in this statemen
of the efforts made by any journal in sup
' port of certain measures, lately before the
• leneral Assembly, which were well iindcr-
stood to have paid liberally lor all that
was done for them, dollars then for once
overshadowed party —and if any or all of
those measures were in any degree bene-
licial to the State, no journal can have
much credit for patriotism on account of
the part it took, until we know how much
money it got.
Knows, to the material interest, prosperity
and advancement of the State; but neither en
terprise, capital nor immigration are friends
to Democratic supremacy ; on the contrary,
each of them is a deadly enemy to that par
ty and its rule ; and, therefore, from thi*
time forward, the Democratic press is op
posed to immigration and to the introduc
tion of capital. Its motto is, "Down with
the State and up with party."
The Richmond J-lnquirer, which, by the
way, is the real head representative and
organ of the Democratic party, and thun
ders while the penny-whistle squeak, has
the ambition, conceit, and courage to tell
the party, press, leadership aud following,
what they may, must, and do believe on
this subject; and it is just this: "Our
people are running mad over the question
of immigration and capital in Virginia. It
is assuming the proportions of a very dan
gerous mania. Why should we be in so
great a hurry to tinish up Virginia?"
"Any sudden' change to prosperity in
Virginia through any agency, whether by
the instiodiietion of capital, or of popula
tion, would only serve to increase .our
misery—to make our rich richer and our
poor poorer, as in other portions of the
world. Why seek to hasten the day."
"Are we not happy enough now '.' are
our people not more nearly on a common
*™ -ions, aiiu Ihat wot tniug as _._>/.
capital and people than wewuut."
Thi.. is a clear tad concise statement of a
most infamous piai!..ini. It declares that
i llu t to secure immigration and capital i- ■
That we ought not to improve the condi
tion of Virginia rapidly;
Tliat tho rapid change to prosperity,
Igh the introduction of capital and pop-
Tha all the happiness we need to be bound together
What ijo the people tliink of such teach
ings, of such utterances, anil of a parly
that int. it necessary tojtiml them to such
a condition of isolation, poverty and w r-_tch_
j platform of an honest acceptance of the
! amendments to the constitution. This
disposition is so frequently disturbed by
j bitter denunciations of them ns to leave us
in doubt as to whether it was " running
1 with the bare or holding with hounds."
Still we have never lost faith in its
final action, and when (leneral
(■rant shall have succesfully defeated
Democracy in 1572, we shall find
this journal in the ranks of the Republi
tn party. It will not surprise us to find
advocating his reelection to the Presi
eney. We shall see, however, and while
ur speculations arc basctl upon tangible
vidences, the uncertain action of politicians
light deceive ns.
This morning, we find it extravagantly
ulogising the speech of Mr Groesbeck, of
Ohio, who, although a Democrat, denies
te right or power of any tribunal to render
null and void the amendments to the con
stitution. Mr. (J. honestly accepts the sit
uation, and his speech proves him a mod
erate, but a national Democrat. If the
Dispatch should ever learn the invaluable
lesson of becoming national, its antecedents
and prejudices will forbid it from becoming
Democratic. This no Old Line Whig can
do, and it is only because it is sectional
that it can cooperate with the Demoocratic
The Dispatch pronounces the speech of Mr.
Groesbecl- unassailable, because it is free
from "party slang." It is free from abuse
of any ono, and is marked by a manly, dig
nified defence of its party principles. May
not the Dispatch adopt the example of Mr.
Groesbeck, and put itself upon an unassail
able platform ?
If the Dispatch and its Democratic asso
ciates would pursue a similar course in the
discussion of political questions, like the
speech of Mr. _!., they would "find way to
more minds, and set more people to think
ing," than by their present illiberal and un
dignilicd manner of discussion.
If Mr. Groesbeck be right in the state
ment that the amendments are irrevocable,
we trust we shall hear no more upon the
übject of annulling them from the Dis
patch, as it so heartily endorses his speech.
We tintl in the Liberal Citizen, of Alex
andria, an excellent speech from the Hon.
liCwis McKenzic, from which we make an
extended extract. The Citizen is a lively
paper and we hope our Republican friends
will give it a good support. Its columns
show commendable attention to local in

This article needs no rr.comyntnthition, for it re

directly to the slopping of the circulation in the

Being made entirely of elastic it never strings

after wearing fo_ mom _.s as when first used, and
yields with every notion, thus giving entire ease
to the wearer.
