THAT UNDER THE FUNDING BILL
THE TAXES OF THE STATE WILL BE
NOT LESS THAN ONE DOLLAR UPON
THE HUNDRED DOLLARS' VALUA
TION, OR DOUBLE WHAT THEY
ARE NOW. !
That under the Funding Bill
not' a dollar in money will ever
reach the state treasury at pre
sent rates, as the coupons are
made receivable for taxes, and
will all be bought up by the
County Treasurers at a discount,
and turned over to the state in
lieu of money ! !
Wedefy Treasurer Rye, or any other man,
to deny these propositions. Why is Ihe
Richmond press silent on this question ?
THE "NEW DEPARTURE."
Reply to Yesterday's Correspondenu
Mr. Vallandigham proposed in May last
tliat the Democratic party should desist
from opposing the thirteenth, fourteenth
and fifteenth amendments of the constitu
tion of the United States ; that it should
accept the constitution as it now is us the
supreme law of the land ;" and from that
ground, as a starting point, sliould take a
"new depaiiure" in its opposition to tho
Wo need not give the reasons ui'ged by
Mr. V. in proposing this change of pro
gramme to his party. His counsel was lo
"accept the situation;" to obey the laws
of the land, especially the national consti
tution, which is the paramount law of tho
land ; aud from this platform, of obedience
to law because it is ftr\&, to conduct its
future political movements.
Practically, Mr. A -Uandigham advised, ]
that the Democratic party should agree:
Ist, that the colored man is never again to
be enslaved in this Union ; .nd, that he is
to be a citizen of this Unieu, having in the
courts and elsewhere, all the civil and'po
litical rights of citizenship; and 3rd, that
he is forever and without cavil or curtail
ment to have and enjoy as fully and freely
as the white man tho right of suffrage in all
elections, Stat* and Federal. This is what
he meant by advising his party to accept the
situaton ; and, planting itself upon the
constitution as il is, to take a "new depar
ture" in its policy and career.
No livin.' man will gainsy that Mr. Val
landigham was honest and sincere in giving
this advice. He desired to put a final end
to the question of the colored man, which |
had so long agitated and distracted the
country. He wished to secure to his party
a chance of winning colored votes over to
itself, iv all future elections. He craved to
see enduring peace and good-will established
between the two races whose lots Uod in
His Providence had cast together in this
There has been a silly effort made fo
assimilate the Walker movement in this
State to the "New Departure" of Mr. Val
laudigham. But there is no resemblance
between the two. Mr. V.'s reoommotida
tion was honestly made for patriotic and
Statesmanlike reasons. TH VYali.e:
movement was a fraud—a fraud in its ol)-
pi iii v between races had been m
tended—why all the subsequent op
position of the Conservative party in Vir
ginia to the colored man's voting? Why
are the delegates and Senators so appor
tioned in the Legislature as to nullify one- 1
third to one-half of the colored vote in
those portions of tho State in which the
colored population predominates ? Why
the capture of the ballot-box in Richmond
containing the votes of a colored majority
that would have seated Republicans in the
1/Ogislature instead of Conservatives? Why
the thousands of complaints made from
every part of the State to our Federal
grand juries and United States attorneys
of intimidation, bribery, fraud and force
practiced by Conservatives to cut down the
colored vote ?
'lite Yallandigham movement was the
suggestion of a patriot willing to confess
former error, and to embrace the right.
Tho Walker movement was a fraud designed
to secure the admission of Virginia under
the auspices of a party whose whole idea
is, to cheat the coloretl man of his fair
vote and weight in the counsels of the Com
About accepting the "New Departure,"
there are three classes of Democrats. Jef
ferson Davis and his retinue refuse to ac
cept, and wait for the time when they may
upset the three amendments, and the con
stitution and the Union along with them.
Another set agree to accept at present
only to gain power to overthrow when op
portunity occurs ; hating the colored man
in their heart of hearts more than ever. —
The third (and we regret to say the small
est <__*_) honestly believe that as Demo
crats they are bound to support these three
and all other provisions of the constitution
in good faith, as loyal citizens; agreeing
with Mr. Vallandigham and the Republican
party that there should be an end of this
question of the negro, that the races should
live in harmony where God has placed
them, and that the only basis of harmony
is equality antl justice.
The Conservative party of Virginia—the
Walker party that was—belongs, we must
ihfornl our correspondent "Conservative,"
to the second class above enumerated.
They doff the name, Democratic—nnil as
sume the alias, t'tmsciralire. They "ac
cept the situation," not iv the interest of
peace between races, and justice to the
colored man ; but for the cunning purposes
of a bitter and vindictive partisanship.
When a ninii takes an alias, and conceals
his real name, all honest people begin to
look-out for their goods and chattels. It is
so with parties which take oiv alias names.
In tho same furtive spirit in which tiie De
mocracy of Virginia have found it conve
nient to call themselves Conservatives, in
that same felonious spirit do they "accept
If our correspondent wishes to act with
a party which abhors and makes war on
the Constitution which they profess to " ac
cept," if he wishes to be a disloyal demo
crat under the alias name of non-committal
Conservative, let him act with the " Con
sereative" party of Virginia.
The issues to be passed upon by the citi- I
zens of Virginia, on the 7th day of Novem
ber next, are of sufficient importance, as
local questions, to necessitate earnest in
quiry into their merits by every conscien
tious voter; but to their importance as lo
cal questions is added the effect of a popu
lar verdict upon that political fraud known
in Virginia as the "Walker Movement."
In view of the evident intention of the
"New Departure" Democracy to present as
Presidential candidate in 1872, some "facing
I' gentleman of easy address anc

AND BUSPETfDER FOR CHILDREN.
Fastened and Adjusted with Buckles, thus doing
away with nil Ligatures, Buttons nnd
Button-Holes. Hooks and Tins.
Is tho only article thus combined, fastened and
adjusted, for this purposo in the market. All im
itations are infringements on the patent granted
Aujrust 25th, 1863, and will be _so treated by Mrs
Dan it'is' counsel.
This article needs no recommendation, for it re
commends itself to every lady who sees it, being the
most simple, easily adjusted, and perfect for its use
ever introduced iitto the market.
All physicians recommend its use, and one
whose name is known and respected on both sides
of the ocean, buys and gives away large numbers
of them to his patients, declaiming Unit most var
icose veins, weak and crippled limbs can be traced
directly lo the stopping of the circulation iv tliu
lower limbs, (and consequently in the wholt_*yß
-tem.) caused by the old ligature of garter.
Being made entirely of elastic it never strings
or wrinkles like cloth, but i_ as fiat and smooth
after wearing for months aw when first used, and
yields with every motion, thus giving en Lire cai*
to the wearer.
THE PROTECTOR ALONE IS WORTH TIIE
PRICE OF THE WHOLE ARTICLE.
It is unnecessary to remove the stoekinjjs from
the suspender except to change, and 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 Hmb. Care should
be taken that tho whole article is large enough
not la feel uncomfortable.
All orders or inquiries should be addressed to
