This gentleman had been sent by th
State Central Committee to adjust the difl'ei
ences that have unfortunately occurred in
our ranks. Mr. Porter arrived by the 1
o'clock morning train from Richmond, am
after carefully examining the case, consult
tag both factions, and making diligent in
quiries, he pronounced that the Jirst legu
ticket should ho supported, and we ar
happy to be aide to state that the majoi
ily, if not all, of the friends of the secom
ticket acquiesced, and submitted to th
Hon. gentleman's decision ; and we fur
ther inform our Republican brothers o'
the State that we, the Republicans i
Danville and Pittsylvania county, are no\
prepared to go hand-in-hand, with one am
and with one purpose. \Vc mean to wip
out tho Democracy. Our prospects ar
brightening every day, and we mean t
!go in and win. We mean to show wher
we stand on the 7th of November next.
.Mr. Porter's address lasted nearly tw
hours; he went for the Democracy heavy
The benefits of the Homestead Act wore
thoroughly explained, as wore also th
wrongs of the Funding Bill. After payin
his respects to the Democracy, Mr. Porte
addressed himself to the large number id'
Republicans present, lie urged united ac
tion and harmony. He reasoned with
them, and explained how important it was
tliat we should have a Republican Legisla

coming six years. His remarks were re

how much joy they had given him. lie

that all was well in Pittsylvania county—

laughter and cries of "Sit down, Poss, we
can't vote for you," announced himself an
independent candidate. He will probably
get one vote (himself.) This act of Poss

perpetrated on the Democracy yet. Poss

A special meeting of the City Counci
was held yesterday afternoon, to conside
the subject of the removal of the railroa<
obstructions from Hroad street.
Mr. Chostcrman, from the special coin
mittee, submitted the following supplomen
tary report :
At a meeltiiK of the committee on lhe remova
of the Richmond, Fredorickslnire: and Potonei
railroad from Hroad street, held October 20th
1871, the following resolution was adopted:
Renolred, That the matter of the removal o
the Richmond, Fredericksburg and I'otoma
railroad from Rrond street, lie referred to th
l 'on-.niitleeon Finance, with Instructions to carry
out the recommendation of this committee, ii
the most practicalile manner that mv.v yiresen
itself to them, alter a full consideration ol til
It will be remembered that this specia
committee, at the last meeting of the Conn
cil, presented a report recommending the
acceptance of the proposition of the presi
dent of said railroad company for the sal
of its depot property, at its assessed value
and also to give to the railroad company
the privilege of closing up and using tha
portion of Eighth street south of the canal
and in lieu thereof to open a new stree
through theirproperty adjacent.
Mr. Isaacs opposed the adoption of th
supplementary .report. He offered as a
substitute a resolution in elf'ect to comini
the whole subject to the Committee oi
Finance, with instruction! to open negotia
lions with the railroad company again.
On the adoption of the substitute, th
ayes and noes were called, resulting,a

ONSTRATION LAST NIOHT, UNDER THE
AUSPICES of Jack Wrkn & Co.—
Cannon Rooming and Tar Barrels But n
inij—A Succeesful Hucccss. —We had no
idea Jack Wren & Co. were going to jump
so readily at our suggestion to burn tar bar
rels, shoot cannon, Ac., Arc, at political
meetings, else we would have been silent
upon the subject. However, 'tis done, and
to be candid, 'twas well done. No matter
who did it, or wdiose money paid the ex
pense, the Democratic demonstration last
night, at tho Old Market, was a successful
success, and we have no doubt made a vote
or too. We will not admit its perfection,
fjr that would put it beyond Mar reach to
excel, for excel wk must from now on,
until the Democrats give up.
These enthusiastic, showy, and attractive
meetings exercised great influence over the
people when the question of secession was
agitated. They are dangerous to all adver
saries, and we tell the people of Richmond,
who are interested in the success of tho Re
publican ticket, that if they would be wi.-e
they must roll up their sleeves and, go in.
We tell the candidates themselves, far more
able than those of our enemies, that if they
w»nt to be elected they must come down
with their stamps; they must be up and do
ing ; they must hire and pay men to leg for
them while they arc tussling with their bo
dies aud talking with their tongues.
Are there no men iv Richmond to be
hired, with money—the same as those were
last night ? They must demand the use of
Old Market Hall, (it belongs to no political
party,) and make it ring with crushing and
telling truths. In fact we must WORK,
and task every individual of the party.
A number of people were induced last
night to attend the meeting, because of the
great elibrts made by a few members of the
Democratic party ; and let our friends think
as they may, we like tho man who puts his
soul into the work he undertakes, whether
his party be right or wrong. If he is a
Ku-Klux, let him be a big Ku-Klux. This
is to win; to be idle, is to lose; and w••
tell you we can't afford to be beaten by
such a party and such men.
We did not hear the speeches delivered
last night, but have no doubt they were ]
-atisfactory to Democrats, and failed to do
When shall we have the next meeting

Horrihle Accident— Death <f a \
Colored Woman. —A colored woman named
Betsy Harris, who was employed as cook
in the kitchen of Mrs. Ruth Ten-ill, mil
Gary street, between Seventh and Eighth,
was, on Friday evening last, burned in the
most horrible manner, from the effects of
which she died on Sunday, after suffering
the most excruciating agony for forty-eight
We learn that the woman was parching
ofl'ee over the stove, and that while per
brming this duty her clothing took lire.
i rapidly did they burn, that but a few
loments elapsed before they were entirely
consumed, and the poor woman most let*
ibly burned in many portions of her body.
Irs. Terrill's hands were badly burned
vhile attempting to smother the llamas,
laving been attracted to the spot by the
cries of the colored woman.
A physician was immediately summoned,
but despite the remedies applied, the victim
of this unfortunate accident died on Sunday,
having endured great suffering for two days

cil last evening, published in our paper, the
question of the Hroad street improvements
has been referred to the finance connnillee
'of the Council, wilh instructions to open

Wo wish we could feel confident that the
CiitiiH'il is imbued with a sincere desire to
; remove the railroad obstructions from

ments in that locality as are demanded by
every consideration of right and justice to
1 the tax-payers. Hut we must confess that
we do not.
The aetiou last evening plainly indicates
a lack of interest in the subject, ami a
woful failure on the part of (•oiineihuen to
.-i|i|>reciafe the urgency and importance of
j the question ; and will undoubtedly greatly
discourage the citizens who are more im
mediately concerned in the contemplated
improvements. " Hope deferred maketh
the heart sick," and tf these Hroad street
property-holders do not soon become thor
oughly disgusted with the reckless trilling
wilii their interests, and determine to look
elsewhere for the consideration to which
they are entitled, we shall consider them
the most patient and confiding morlals that
The Council is beginning early to give ev
idence of its reckless disregard of the in
terests of its constituents, who will, sooner
or later, be convinced that if they would ]
see Richmond prosper, as she should do, it
will be. necessary to elect men of more en
larged and liberal views. Hut all good cit- j
i/.ens can find soiee consolation in tho re
flection that the time lor a "new deal" is
coining apace, when we hope to see a Coun
cil, composed of men alive to the interests
of the city, elected by our citizens.
A Few Plain Remarks.—From the
umber of complaints that reach us from
early every precinct in the city, we arc
itislied the same villainies are practiced
Inch have marked the course of the Dem
cratic party iv this city in the past. The |
lost annoying questions are asked of col
red men, while imaginary Democrats are
emitted to register without let or hin
iiince. Obstacles of every sort are put iv
ie way of colored men, and every effort
lade to prevent them qualifying themselves
We are not going to make any appeal for
ustico and ask the fair minded men of
democracy to correct the evils, but we are
;oing to warn them that there is an end to
ie patience of all men, that such outrages
mst ultimately bring better fruit to the
ps of the sowers of the seed, and the
ooner they cease such conduct, the better
will be for all parties. It is to be pre
umed that the honorable men of the party
1 this city, are in ignorance of the means
dopted by the infamous and contemptible
irty workers of the party ; for we know
uch men do not endorse, and would noten
ourage, the longer continuance of wrong,
uch acts will return to plague the inven
tors, and our word for it, a longer continu
ance of them will result in the final over
lrow of corruption, and when once again
is in the power of Republicans, its ap

LOOKOUT. —To-night we are to have a
grand Republican rally in front of the
City Hall, Hroad street, and are satisfied
there will be no lack of material to make it
imposing and interesting. A number of
speakers have been engaged for the occa
sion, and from their well known reputation
we mar expect something good. Come one
and all, and let us show the enemy we are
in good trim for an earnest light. Wo es
pecially invile Democrats lo be present that
they may see we can approximate, if not
excel, the grand Democratic demonstration
of last night.

and perfect character than for any preced

exhibition will embrace a much larger
range of articles also, than on any previous
occasion, and will, no doubt, be a ■aeOtM
in every respect. The accommodations both j
for people and stock, as well as for articles I
in all the departments of inventive skill and j
handiwork, have been made with a view I
to the increased and growing interest of j
our people in these matters, and we
predict that the meeting hero next week
will favorably compare in all essential
particulars with similar meetings in other
The department devoted to cattle pro
mises to be very full, indeed. Already the
original number of stalls prepared have
l« in taken, and a large additional number
are now iv course of construction. This
department will include some of the finest
stock, both of Virginia and Maryland, and
is attracting much attention among stock
raisers, who will be largely represented at
A large number of horses have also been
entered. The entries embrace the finest
thoroughbred horses, brood mares, Arc, of
which our State can boast, and we have no
doubt the exhibition will give a new hope- i
tvs to importers and breeders.
Poultry has forsometime been a growing
interest in our State, and from the fact that
every coop on the grounds has for several I
days been engaged, we may confidently ex- |
pect tho finest display ever witnessed in |
the State. There will be no lack of accom
modations, however, and no one need have
any such fears. The management are on
the end rice, and will be prepared for all.
\\ c are gratified to know that the wo
men of Virginia are taking a great interest
iv the approaching exhibition; that the de
partment especially devoted to their handi
work is rapidly filling up, and that the cle
gnuce and variety ot articles entering war
rants the expectation that it will far out
rival any similar exhibition on the grounds.
In agricultural machinery and farm im
plements, as well as every description of
labor-saving machinery, there will probably
be a most gratifying improvement, no less
in quantity than in the general interest
which so important a subject has awakened
among the people of our State. Many en- I
tries are already recorded, and the interest
shows no sign of abatement.
The swine and sheep departments are
filling up to an extent scarcely anticipated
at first, but we arc assured that ample ac
commodations will be prepared.
The olficers of the society request us to
state that the ofHce on the grounds will be
open on Friday and Saturday next for the
reception of articles aud stock entered for
The "Journal" Ku-Ki.ux— His An
cestry—A Jxmg Way From Home. —The
Evening Neies and [inquirer both charge
the Journal ollice with being the abode
of a band of Ku-Klux, and go so far as to
designate tho Grand Cyclops. We have
taken particular pains to inquire into the
truth of the charge and find it correct in
some particulars. The Grand Cyclops tells
us. he is the son of a wealthy and re
spectable Democrat of North Carolina, and
has inherited his disposition to be cruel to
"niggers" from his father, and that on his
arrival in Richmond, he was directed to go
to either the IShquirer of News office, where
Ihe would find plenty of friends. He had
gone to them both, but found their papers
so little in demand, and so little about
them worth Ku-Kluxing, he thought he
would try alarger establishment. Hence he
came to our oflice, and could not long resist
the idea of going for a juvenile fifteenth
He says he would go back to tiie New*
oflice, but they told him the one old gentle
nun they have employed could sell all their
papers that was w anted, consequently they
could Hud no job for him. When we told
him to go to the Rm/nira; he astonished us
by informing us that they gave away all
their papers, and didn't sell any, aud of
course had no use for him. We have re-
I ferred him to the Disjiatch, where, we im
agine, he wili lie more at homo than with
These North Carolina Ku-Klux are tern
hie fellows, ami if this youthful one only
knew Judge liond was here, we imagine he
would surrender, plead guilty, and ask for
judicial clemency, as many of his friends in
North Carolina have recently done.
A Hid for Foreign Votes. —Mr.
William Lovenstcin, the German candidate
on the Democratic ticket, is willing that all
foreigners who desire to become naturalized
citizens of America may report lo him, at
his office, just above ours.
How disinterested you are, Hilly! Would
you let one of them leave you withou'.
promising to vote for you? Ofc, no! we
reckon not; and wouldn't you, Hilly, pay
a little of the expense attending the procure
ment of said papers? We reckon you
would, Hilly. How kind you-are, thus loj
assist foreigners to make Americans of
themselves, Hilly! Did you ever oiler s.i I
much for so little before? We guess not.
jlt is distressing to see how suddenly can- |
didates for ollice grow kind. Hut we de
sist, Hilly ; all the foreigners not now na
| turalized'will be unable to save your bacon.
I Peg pardon, we forgot you didn't like it.
It is Possiule. —At the grand Demo*
cratic rally last night, our friends, exhibited
a cotlin, at the head of which was inscribed,
"We killed them in 18tj'J," and at the foot, |
"We will bury them in 1571." The colßn
and inscription, doubtless, emanated from
the mind of some one who remembered the
breaking of the Jefferson ward ballot-box, 1
the killing of Policeman Kennedy, and the
shooting of another policeman who wanted
to testify as to Democratic villainy.
It is possible, we may be buried in '71,
but we have the evidence of the past that
there is such a thing as resurrection, and
that 1872 is the time allotted to us for that
resurrection. Pennsylvania, Ohio and
other States have made the promise, and
we have faith in their word. i
