A DIRECT INQUIRY TO WHICH VIE ASK
The Richmond I'lnquirer it the organ of
Demotraey in Virginia, and to it we put
these question* direct, and respectfully ask
of it a reply without any evasion whatever:
I.S THERE NOT IN' THIS CITY SECRET
riH.ITtCAI, ORGANIZATIONS OF THS
CONSERVATIVE PARTY WHICH EX
CLUDES A__ CATHOLICS Ir'HOM MKM
BERSHti'? Do not these organizationl
control all patty action in ski ret; and
do they not so manipulate party matters ns
to render oulside and Independent action
utterly worthless and of no oH'ect ?
Arc not these counc ; ls, clubs, societies,
or by whatever name known, endorsed,
and their action concm. Ed Jn or counte
nanced, by the City Central Committee, or
such a majority thereof, as controls the nc
lion of the party in this city?
If these societies do exist, w i'l the Kn
i/itirti- tell us the difference between the
Consetvative paiLy of to-day aud the
Know-Nothing pai iy of the past ?
We pause for a reply. We make Hie

"CONFESSION FROM IHE WALLOWS."
For the information of the Alexandria
Standard and Sentinel, we will stale that
sickness in the family of Colonel Edward
Daniels has prevented him irom giving Mi
personal attention to the editorial coltnß
of this gaper for several weeks, and th
he is NOT the author of the article header
"Confession From tlie tlallows," and th
fie author is NOT "a man who cemc
down hero from the North," but, on tl
contrary, a ) ; fe-lnng Virginian, of no 3■ tt
reputation, both as a writer and defend)
of Republican principles. The best of a
is, that he generally defends what he snv
"i speech or pi "it..
We say this much ; u order that juatk
may be done Colonel Daniels in the digtri
in which he resides.

Petersburg, October 13,1871. !
Tv Ihe Editor iifllie UUiltt Jimrmd :
A dashing young man of our city, who
was appointed by our Republican Council |
last July one of the members of the Board I
of the Ijovver Appomattox Company, eager j
for fame and distinction,or, as Cobbcfc said, I
"anxious to sec his name iv dirty print,"
announces to the world, and particularly
the people of Richmond and Petersburg,
through tho Index and IHtpaioh, that he
resigns his position on the Hoard of the
Imwcr Appomattox Company, which insti
tution, no doubt, wiil deeply regret the
loss of such an able and sharp Jinancicr.
Now, to obviate this lamentable loss to our
time-honored Board, and lo have this
resignation properly accepted, will it not
be necessary to have a public meeting
called of all the citizens ol big Richmond,
little Petersburg, and surrounding counties,
especially those through which flows tbe '
noble Appomattox, to determine if it would |
lie advisable, in the present slate of the ■
country, to receive this gentleman's resigna- I
(Your advice on so momentous a«|ueslion
is anxiously looked for before the next
meeting of our Common Council, which
takes place on the Ist of November; and
please advise with (loveinor Walker and
We do BOt like to advise our friends with
out being thoroughly acquainted with the
subject; and as we have no idea offfcp
value of the services of the gentleman n -
breed to, we arc at a loss to suggest the
proper course to pursue as to the accept
ance of his resignation.
Governor Walker, true to his "0. B."
•nstincts, never stays at home long enpugh
to bo consulted upon important trailers,
consequently wo.pannot confer with him.
Mayor Keiley's acquaintance with Peters- i
burg is of such a character as to give weight
to his opinion, lie says, "let him slide."
If the gentleman who wlsltes to re
sign be young and inexperenccd, we con
cur with Mayor Keily.
We saw enough Saturday in Petersburg
to satisfy us, that "hydrophobia" i.s quite
prevalent [among tho Democrats of that
place, and that in their madness there is no
method. Del them rare, stamp and bellow,
but as you have got their noses to the ring,
hold them there until they cry "peace,"
and then make them give good Republican
security before you slacken the rope.

The Man Who Won't Advertise.
lie merchant who does not advertise is dis
