Yesterday was a busy day with our par
ty. In tho forenoon wo went to I lay market,
one of the outlying towns of Prince Wil
liam county. The morning was glorious,
and the ride over these magnificent plains,
with the sharp peak of the Bull Hun range
rising grandly in the distance, inspiring and
delightful. We found a considerable gath
ering at the hotel from the country, ready
to hear what was to be said in behalf of
the Republican candidates.
Judge Willoughby led oil' with a calm,
clear, convincing speech, and was followed
by Mr. Rounds, the Republican candidate
for Delegate of Prince William, one of
the most vigorous, energetic and plucky
Republicans wo have met anywhere, who
has gallantly upheld the cause hero against
the fiercest opposition, spoke next in the
off-hand style, which the people like.
Ho was very happy in his manner and
matter, and made some telling hits upon
the Democracy. The last attempt at a
Republican meeting hcte, was broken up
in a row by the gallant Conservative
politicians. Our meeting was quiet and
everything passed of pleasantly, showing
a decided improvement in the temper of
Returning, we stopped at (laincsvillc,

some friends in looking after the registry.

The grass, though short from drouth,
seemed to cover the ground with a good
sod ; the wheat was up and looked finely,
and tho standing corn spoke well of this
region for a farming country. The timber
which has survived tho war in sullieient |
quantity for home supply, is tall, stout and
line, alibrding some of tlie most beautiful
specimens of open forest lands iv the State.
The surface is rolling and rises with mag
nificent swells like tho billowy prairies of
Northern Illinois, dotted with island
groves in tho same picturesque manner.
Manassas is located in the centre of a
plateau which declines itt all directions I
from the town for many miles, giving a
vast range of vision. On tho main road a
few fine farms are seen, but most of the
land is open common and is owned by
non-residents. It is offered at prices rang
ing from five to lifteen dollars per acre, and
We are told that three years ago every

otliers who were renting their iantls and
going back North, because they could not
live in a country destitute of schools, and
where tho Conservative influences are op
l_>sed to nil those improvements which
make life in any coutitry tolerable to civil
ized men. A few violent men, influencing
tho low rabble around the depots here,
still giving a false impression as to tlie
character of the people and their sentiments
towards new settlers. I tut there can be no
doubt that all the better class of native cit
izens earnestly desire that Northern people
should settle among them. A Conserva/
tive convention last fall passed resolutions
(that we shall publish soon) expressing such
sentiments. The best invitation they can
give, however, to a good emigration, is a
strong Republican vote.
Our meeting at Manassas was held in a
nicely finished building, which answers the I
triple purpose of church, school, and hall
for general meetings. In this commodious
and well seated building Mr. Rounds open
ed the discussion with a good speech. He
was followed by Mr. Purcell, the candidate
of the Conservative people, though the con
i volition, by a fraud, failed to give him its
rote. Air. Purcell seems to be the favorite
jof the masses, though not so popular with
the liing as Frank Lewis, his opponent.
He is a man of ability, and exhibited great
earnestness and enthusiasm in defending his
claims. Liberal in progress, and we may |
say christian in spirit, he had little fault to
find with our measures, but was afraid of

The Commissioner of Pensions, in making
out this pension, has always boon guided
by the terms of the original manuscript bill i
ou file at the State Department, and ins- -j
fused to allow Mrs. Games over $50 i»er
month. She is now, through her counsel,
contesting the authority for this action,
claiming that she is entitled to $100 per
month, as provided foi in tho statute-book.

mysterious and Dustnrdly Assault.
A most mysterious and cowardly assault
was made upon the person of Dr. J. McG.
Kent, at Big Lick, on the nignt of the 18th
ins t., by some unknown ruffian or ruffians.
Wo hear that some time ago, Dr. Kent re
ceived an anonymous letter, purporting to
be from lSlacksburg, in which he was noti
fied that he must prepare for death, which
would come when least expected. This,
us a matter of course, was regarded as sheer
Bse, and no attention paid to it by
, who supposed very naturally that
not an enemy in the werld. The
however, has proven the contrary.
Doctor not only has an enemy, but
ois as dangerous as cowardly. On
lit aliove mentioned Dr. Kent came
out of his residence, and while walking
quietly and unsuspectingly down his yard,
was struck a violent blow in tbe face by a
large rock thrown by some unseen person.
Tho blow was so violent that it felled him
to the ground, completely stunned. Ilis
assailant nnd wood-be-inudcrcr then
rushed upon him, and, with v large bowie
knife, stabbed him twice in the breast. Ify
the mercy of Providence the wretch was
frustrated in his diabolical attempt at mur
der by some letters antl tobacco which
were 111 Dr. X.'s pocket. The knife went
through eleven letters and two plugs of to
bacco, and only punctured the skin. Put
for the timely appearance of some of tho
female members of Dr. K's. family it
might have resulted fatally. We congrat
ulate the Dr., as well as his family and the
community generally, upon his providential
escape. We can ill afford to lose such val
uable citizens at this time. We think this
a case that requires a critical examination,
aud, should tho would-be assassin be dis
covered, we recommend that one of ,1 Udge
Lynch's juries bo at once impatmellod anil

Officer Dilderon attempted to arrest a

resisted, and called on Robert Thompson
to assist him. The Chinese opened lire on
both of them. Thompson fell and died im
mediately. Officer Bildcron was shot, but
ascaped on horseback. A mob soon col
lected and attacked the whole Chinese
quarter, and were resisted by the Chinese.
Five hundred armed men surrounded the
Chinese quarter to prevent any from escap

the mob and their houses iired. The lire,
however, was extinguished.

The Case op the Druggists. — The
several Democratic papers of tho city are
crying out against the •'persecution" of
several prominent druggists of the city,
one of whom, on yesterday, Mr. S. X
Dove, was lined $100 for having in his pos
session and olfering for sale bottles of per
fumery, &c, which were not stamped. The
Jlispalch and Enquirer both blame the
collector of internal revenue for tlie part
be has taken in tho matter, when, il they
were aware of the facts connected with
these cases, they would, doubtless, express
In the case of Dr. Dove, ninety-eight
different bottles and vials were found in his
store unstamped, and tho collector might I
have prosecuted the case under a section
of the revenue laws, in which the penalty
is fixed at $50 in each anil every case.
Under this section, Dr. Dove became liable
to a fine of $1,1)00, whereas a verdict has
been rendered against him fur only $100.
'I'he conviction that none of tho dealers in
tended to defratitl the government, resulted
in their trial under a section of the law of
We do not believe any one is liable to
tho charge of wrong; and that the col
lector, jury and court have acted only to
enforce the law, we have no doubt. We
are as ready to censure the wrong, when
j |icrpetrated by members of our party, as
are the other papers of the city; but we
not only see no wrong in these cases, but a
plain performance of a sworn duty on the
part of the officers. When partiality is
shown, or any officer of the government
attempts to screen one individual and prose
cute another, then we are ready to join in
censure with our cotetnporaries; otherwise,
we must sustain those who are impartial iv
the discharge of their duties.
If votes are to be lost to tho Republican
party because men are not permitted to
violate the law, we say let 'em go. All
honest and right thinking men see the ne
cessity of an impartial enforcement of tho
Revenue laws, because of the injustice that
would result to those who comply with all
its requirements, and if an oflicer fails in
| his duty, those who comply with the law
would soon complain of him and demand his
A Good Joke on a Policeman De
tailed to Watch Thieves.—There
are a number of pick-pockets and thieves
already here, in anticipation of a rich har
vest during the Fair. The police authori
ties are aware of their presence, and yes
terday detailed a squad of policemen to go
to the Petersburg depot and keep an eye
on these chaps. One of the detail had just
purchased a new silk handkerchief, which,
with a piece of tobucco and his billy, con
stituted all ho had about his clothes.
He was so interested in watching the ii
terests of the crowd that ho actually forgot
his own existence, and when be left the de
pot, to his astonishment, discovered that
one of tho light-lingered gentry had relieved
him of both his handkerchief and tobacco,
lie congratulates bin self that he had no
thing else to lose, as ho feels satisfied
would have been stolen. Visitors to tl
fair had better look out, if these chaps art
so cunning as to rob a policeman, with h
eyes open. They are either sharp ones o
the policeman very stupid; of course tl
latter is not true.

A Want Sitim'LlED.—Our city has
long felt the need of a genteel place where
ladies could be served with something sub
stantial to eat. This want has at last ben
supplied, and Mr. 11. T. Cook, former pro
prietor of the popular boarding-house cor
ner of Eighth and Clay streets, has opened
a restaurant in the handsome rooms in rear
of Andrew Autoni's confectionary.
His prices are moderate, while tho ro
reshiuents served are of the best character.
*idics and gentlemen both will receive •
early welcome, and the polite attention of
ie proprietor and his servants. For a
piare meal and honest oysters, cofiee, tea,

A Tempest in a Tea-dot.—Burin
the fair at Petersburg two white policcme
entered v carriage with two colored one
and drove to tho fair. Because of this th
I Index has spotted them, and uttempts to
tnake capital of it. We wonder if the In
/..i man was in Richmond during the la.
I Legislature. We wonder if he was here
during the Democratic convention. W
wonder if he has got good sense, and Una
ly, we wonder from what quarter of th
globe he hails, that he should, at this lat
day, kick up a muss because two white
men were seen riding with two coloret
men. We confess this is the greatest non
sense we have seen in print since the war
and would advise the gentleman to wipi
his specks, wake up from his snooze, am
see if ho can't lind something of more im
portanco than marking men because the
were doing what is done every day, and o
which no gentleman is ashamed.
