We have no doubt great disappointment
is felt by members of the Republican par
ty over the largely increased majority by
which we were defatted. The general iu
ijuiry this morning is, "how is it po__-_btl
our enemies have obtained so large a ma
jority?" The answer is plain and simple,
and we give it the more readily, in view ol
the fact, that yesterday is not likely to be
the last time we will have a lick at them.
Here it is in plain English. While many
colored men worked nobly at tho polls,
with an occasional exception white men of
the party were too modest or ashamed In
offer tickets of the party, to voters. These
colored men were in several instances de
barred from pushing themselves, by rough
answers of voters and others who would
not have dared acted so towards white
men. Some of our candidates refused to
contribute a dollar, or lake any intciv.-t in
the election, while the Democratic candi
dates were busy from the time of their
nominations, and liberal in furnishing means
for success. There were hundreds of car
riages, decked wilh Conservative banners
and mottoes, busily driven through our
streets, in Match of voters, while there
were comparitively few in the service, of Re
A number of colored men voted the
Democratic ticket, while no white men but
Republicans voted ours.
Nine-tenths of the wmkers employed by
our side, labored for pay, while the prin
cipal part of the Democratic workers were
volunteers. The latter always fight better
When Republican documents were to lie
circulated, somebody must be paid to do it
—when Democratic documents were circu
lated, it was done gratuitously.
Now, fellow Republicans, we have given
you a few of the reasons for our defeat,
and there remains one more to be told, and
that is an important one. There were
more Democratic voters in Richmond yi .-.
torday than there were Republicans. We
do not pretend to say that by different man
agement this large majority can be readily
overcome, but we do say it may be largely
decreased. A number of colored men
were away from the city at work, while
few Democrats were absent. The party
wants these men back again, or in their
stead ; il wants . omc who are now Demo
o'ats to come over to our side.
How this is to be accomplished, remains
f >r us in the future to discover.
fall to itself in Virginia, Democracy will
soon become so corrupt, nnd so disgust Un
people of the State, as that they will not
consent to remain united with it.
The constant growing poverty of Virginia,
t-ie emigration of her young men to more
prosperous States, the entire cessation of
Northern emigration to Virginia will, in the
cjurse of time,convince the sensible men of
the State that State pride and boasted chiv
alry will not pay their taxes, nor fill their
empty mouths, but that soMETIUNd must
be done far her improvement.
When convinced, as a few years more of
bitter experience will certainly do, that
without means from elsewhere, the pride of
the American I'iiion will rank with her
poorest sisters, then, and not till then, may
we hope to see our best nun in harmony
with the great national party.
Let us be true and faithful to our party
principles ; let us discard personal ambi
tions ; let us renew our allegiance to the
Knion, and stand by the Hag ol our coun
try. Defeat is often necessary and in.sti uc-
We, and if we are true to ourselves wt
ill in the end accomplish a great aud last
| y ictory.
n_trnonlllTT. we have few obectioni
to urge against the representatives i if the
Democratic party elected to position yt__
terday. It is the principle involved that
excites our apprehensions. 11 is but the
rattling fire of the skirmishers we heard
yesterday, presaging the stern national con
test of IK*."-', 'tis again becoming it .»
lionul issue and question. As State after
State in the South wheels into battle-line
under Democratic colors, State after State
North confronts them with the national
banner. Virginia goes Democratic, New-
York Republican. The latter takes a new
departure and marches proudly and grand
ly on to a higher degree of influence aud j
prosperity ; the former recedes ami retro- !
grades, clutching still the lifeless skeleton i
of sectionalism. As each Southern State i
rjlls up its Democratic hundreds, a i_m___»
der of alarm thrilld the loyal luart of the I
great West and North, and thoiisamis an
swer tnousands iv vows of allegiance to the
Christian principles of the Republican j
Democrats in the North may he Wedded
to certain principles, but they breathe no
sentiment of hate, of disloyalty, to the
I 'nion and the government. They, too, di
trust such Democracy as exhibits itself i:i
the whipping-posts ol Virginia and the Xi -
Klux Klaus of the farther Southern State .
Looking to the future, and consulting alone
tlie mterests of Virginia, the spectacle pre
sented gives us the deepest pain. We do
not disguise it —we feel il but too deeply.
Shall the exclamation of the patriot
heard, ringing out the certain doom mate-
Till _*TI Ml liIMOCRA.V.

Democratic party have elected a working
majority to the _■______£ Legislature its first

ii.any of the emus of its [ircdecos- ..1-.
No question will excite more general in
terest than the one of finance. We have
charceil and, we think, sustained our posi
tion, that the Ftmd-lg Bill of last session
was an injurious and imprudent one—like
|y to result in distress and ruin to the peo
ple of the State.
If the party having control of the legisla
tion of the State, will hut calmly look to
the practical workings of this hill they will
find in il much to correct by which tho peo
liay be relieved of heavy burdens. If
arty will do this it will entitle itself to
ratitude of the lax-ridden people of the
