THE WORK OF THE FALL CANVASS.
We believe that no party was ever than
thoroughly united in .sentiment than the
Republicans of Virginia at the present mo
ment. We have a platform of principles
that commend themselves to the good sense
of the people. AYe have no concealed plans
for the future ; no private purposes to aim
pass, with which we dare not trust the
masses, l'elty jealousies are postponed,
anil personal claims are laid aside to awail
the hour of triumph'over the common enc-

State from the control of a party whose in
competency has been attested by years of
misrule before the war, and whose brief ex

The condition of sueeess is work.
From this moment forward, let every
Republican labor with untiring zeal. Every
intelligent and energetic effort will do good
i'self, antl as an examjde to others, it tci!l
stimulate and encourage all.
Tho campaign will be short and sharp.
It must now be cio.vded into a brief month,
and every moment should bo diligently and
systematically employed. In most of the
counties 'ocal nominations have been made.
In others they will .soon be completed.
Everything is ready to start the lull ma
chinery of the canva-s.
Tho brief time allotted imposes the ne
cessity of energy and promptitude. The
J.tale Committee is urbanized, aud vigor

meetings that exert lhe most inlluence on

principles rather than Ihe Ma-I of men in

merits of our candidates we have done noth

our triumph is only for a day. Hut if we
can change the convictions of men by ap
peals to reason and conscience, we have
achieved a real victory over falsehood and
wrong, and its results will be felt for gene
rations. The highest work of a political
parly is the political etlur.ation of the
people. To this great work we earnestly
conjure all true Republicans. We entreat
them to lay "aside every minor object and
labor zealously for the cause whose triumph
will be assured if the right spirit animates
every breast and nerves every arm. Begin
t i-'ltty, antl cease not till the last cote is in

11l- CHICAGO DISASTER.
Amid the overwhelming ruin which has
overtaken the Queen city of the lakes, it
seems almost sacrilege to think of individ
ual cases or of personal friends.
We cannot forget, however, the great af
flictions of many who arc dear to us, and
while our hearts bleed for all, these hold
special claims upon us. Among Ihe great
newspapers that were cngiilphed in that
awful ruin the Tribune stands preeminent.
When the fall of smoke covered the ruins
of its magnificent edilice, one of the great
lights of the world went out. It was like
striking a constellation from the sky.
We know it will rise again, beautiful and
brilliant as ever. But we knew it in its
days of weakness and obscurity, and have
watched its steady climb to tlip zenith,
with love and hope, for its light shown
in all its early days on the top of human
progress and freedom.
We have known some of its stall'as dear
Siliar friends, and to them we send words
ur hearts go out to all the suffering
thousands, and we can only hope that the
nation will meet this mighty call upon its
charily as it descends.
PREVALENCE OF CHILL"* AND FEVER
AT Till': NORTH.
The people of Connecticut tire suiteriiig at pre
sent from a sickness to which hitherto they have
been almost utter strangers. For generations
they have boon exempt from that most uncom
fortable malady, the fever and ague, which now
li:is become almost epidemic I throughout the
State, shaking not only lhe inhabitants but their
nearly universal belief that malarial disorders
Were 'impossible on their soil. It may be that the
universally rainy summer lias been the cause of
this by creating stagnant pools of water, and
making every low-lying meadow a swamp where
the fever may breed.
We clip the above from the N. Y. Worhl,
and it is only coroborative of what we have
seen reported from various sources.
The disease appeared in various locali
ties ; even on the hills and along the sea
shore. Reports from Red Wing, Minne
sota, mention that locality, farther still to
the northward, as being the banner town
for chills, two hundred cases having oc
curred in one day. Yet there are people
who cry out against Virginia, and particu
larly the Tide-Water region, because there
is liability to fever and ague. Tho West is
recommended as healthier, and its land
represented as cheaper, both of wliich pro
positions are wholly incorrect.
There is no hcaltheir country on the
globe than Virginia. Iv any country we
would advise people to keep out of low,
damp localities. Such places are sickly
alike in Maine aud Virginia, in Illinois and
Minnesota. All experience proves that
causes of disease are very local ; even a
foul, damp cellar or dirty hog-pen often
causing fatal disease.
There are localities near the city of New
York where chills are as common as iv the
worst parts of Wisconsin, Illinois or Kan
sas, while half a mile away they are scarce
ly ever known. And it is so on the banks
of the Potomac and the James. Certain
portions of the city of Washington arc no
torious for ague, chills and fevers, while
other parts arc comparatively exempt from
them. Looking closely at the matter we
find also that fever and ague prevails among
a certain class of people who live in badly
constructed houses, eat unwholesome food,
and are generally careless and uncleanly in
their habits. These people, both white and
colored, frequent the low, rich bottoms
along the rivers, on account of cheaper living.
Their food is mostly bacon, corn-cakes and
fish, always fried in lard. They use few
vegetables, aud consider fruit as dangerous
We chanced to visit such a family a few
days since, living in a little log hut, near
the edge of a low ilat on the Potomac. —
Father and mother and live children—the
youngest a baby—were gathered around
the table, in the centre of which set a trench
er of bacon aud herring swimming in melt
ed grease ; corn cakes, fried in the same
material, were the only oilier eatable, ex
cept coit'ee. Every member of the family
were complaining of chills. When we sug
gested the use of apples and other ripe
fruit, so abundant in that region, and of
vegetables, which can be so cheaply raised,
these poor people were astonished, and said
that the}' dare not let their children eat fruit
or vegetables because they were so sickly.
The poor little things now and then
broke over the parental restraint and
gorged themselves, which, probably,
strengthened this impression. Now, a mile j
awny from this family, which is a fair spe
cimen of the thousands on the
river, are families who live on high loca
tions, and whose habits are cleanly,
and who live rationally and decently.
the bugbear of the New York liiriii-is'
No man must expect to go Nutlh or
West, or make any railieal change of cli
mate whatever, without care to adapt his
► mode of life tO the new conditions. If lie
lines not, he will certainly bo punished Cm
it. What we claim for Virginia, nnd c -
pecially for its upper title-water land- in
the vicinity of Washington, Richmond, anil
other localities, is, that taking the whole
year through, the average of sickness is
greatly below that of the North or North*
