Letter from WarrenMn.
Wahrenton, Va., August 12.
To tlu Editor of ttie Slat* Journal:
Quite an enthusiatic meeting was held at
Lam'S "Cross roads," near this place on
Saturday, the 10th inst., on which occasion
the Grant and Wilson element soared high.
Several telling speeches were delivered,
favoring, in the most emphatic terms, the
reelection of General Grant, and in sup
porting the record of the present adminis
tration. No response having been made by
the supporters of Mr. (jrecley, it w«s natu
ral to suppose that the hero of "Chappa
qua" was devoid of many constituents on
George W. Richardson, formerly of Ohio,
now a resident of Prince William county,
Va., and Mr. George Tyler and J.S. Saun
ders, and others, of Fauquier, addressed
tho audience, which numbered some two
hundred or more, upon the issues of the
campaign, and urged Republicans to firmly
support the principles which secure
their rights upon the platform adopted at
Plriladelphia. Old Fauquier is '"agog" for
Grant and' Wilson, who will no doubt carry
tho county by 500 in November. Bets are
being offered, but I hear of none having
been accepted of five to three on the above
result, and the same offers on 10,000 for
the State. So you will readily perceive
that the Greeley tide is at low ebb with us.
"Let us have peace," with G. and Bl in
the kick ground. J. S. S.
Freil. Uonglats to the Colored Voters or tlic
Washington, August 9, 1872.
Colored Fr.llow Citizens:
In view of tho insidious and dangerous
advice and counsel of Mr. Sumner, I think
it is my duty to set forth a few urgent rea
sons why we, as a race and as fellow-citi
zens, all bound up in the same interest,
can not and should not vote for Greeley
and Brown, but. that to a man, we should
cast our whole weight into the scale for
Grant and Wilson.
First —We in the South have been lib
erated from slavery by the direct agency of
the Republican party. Had Greeley been
President instead of Lincoln, we would to
day have been in a worse bondage under
the Slave Republic of the Southern Confed
erate States than ever before. Greeley ad
vocated this policy, and did his best to es
tablish the Republic of which slavery was
to bo the chief corner-stone.
Ser.ond —Our first vote was cast as freed
men for Grant in 1808. Have wo been
disappointed in the result of his adminis
tration ? Previous to that period you bad
no vote. Now we have equal rights (or
almest equal rights) with the white race.
We can accumulate property as they do ;
we have the law's protection over us as
they have ; our marital relations respected;
our wives and children are our own and
not the property of others ; we can testify
in every court; we have the right if we
have the power to have our brethren elected
to the Senate and Congress of the country;
we are a power that is felt; we hold the
balauce of power in America ; no corrupt
or vascillating man can bo elected to the
Presidential chair unless we consent to
vote for him.
Third.— All this has occurred sinco '05,
and chiefly since we cast our vote for Grant
in 'GS. Are we prepared to risk the aban
donment of these great privileges and bless
ings, and vote for a.man who believes that
any State may dissolve from the Union
when she sees fit, or pass such laws as may
seem to her best ? Aro we prepared to voie
for the nominee of tho Democratic Party,
whose hearts never have changed toward us,
who kept us in slavery as long as they had
tho power, and who if they had the power
again would (to say the least of it) do
their very utmost to restrict our liberties
and oppress us as of old. Mr. Sumner may
deceive himself; he cannot deceive us ; or,
to use the language of the gentleman, Mr.
James R. Doolittlc, chairman of the con
vention which nominated Mr. Greeley, one
of the objects of the nomination being the
" overthrow of negro supremacy." And
forsooth, what is this supremacy they so
much wish to overthrow ? It is simply
the cancellation of those ordinary privileges
and blessings, enumerated in clause second.
We have no supremacy, and never expect
to have, nor intend to try for.
Fourth. —In conclusion: Be not deceived!!
With Grant, our security is unquestionable;
our happiness will be made lasting. With
Greeley, we would enter upon a sea of
trouble—an unknown and anxious future.
Unscrupulous advisers would be his friends.
Our old foes would surround him, as they
even do now; and even if a few stanch
friends should endeavor to stem the coming
troubles, they would be swept away with
the torrent, and the great work of the Re
publican party prove an abortion. It can
not bo that we will send one vote out of our
entire midst to help bring about such dire
results, and I pray Cod that, when the
time comes, every man of our race will be
found true to the cause of human rights to
all. Fred'k Douglass.
Women in Virginia in 1776.—Par
ton finds this among the statutes of Vir
ginia iv 1770 :
" Whereas oftentimes many babbling
women often slander and scandalize their
neighbors for which their poors husbands
are often brought into chargeable and vexa
tious suites, and caste in greate damages :
Bee it therefore enacted by the authority
aforesaid, that in actions of slander, occa
sioned by the wife as aforesaid, after judg
ment passed for the damages, the woman
shall be punished by ducking, and if the
slander be so enormous as to be adjudged
at a greater damage than five hundred
pounds of tobacco then the woman to sillier
a ducking for each five hundred pounds of
tobacco adjudged against the husband, if he
refuse to pay the tobacco."
A lady was asked by her Biddy about
, tho nature of the next world, and whether it
would be just like this. The lady being
' blessed with a happy family of eleven chil
dren, has a skeleton in the house in the
i shape of a stocking-basket that never gets
| empty, and at whose side she has spent
many a weary midnight hour in darning.
f With this spectre before her eyes she rcpli
'ed to the girl playfully, "I don't think wt
; shall be required to darn stockings aftei
midnight." "Sure and that's thrue for you
| mum, lor all the pictures of angels 1 bav<
ever seen were barefooted."

Manhattan Lodge, of New York, is the old

—Mrs. Lloyd, the alleged Leesburg mur
deress, was arraigned before the County
court on yesterday. The first count in tho
indictment found against her, charges her
with administering arsenic to her daughter
Maud, on the 22d day of March, 1572,
through the mouth, from the etlects of
which she died on the 25th of the
said month. Tho second charg
es its admistration at the same
time and with the same effect by in
jection ; and the third charges its adminis
tration in a solution with water or other sub
stance, causing death. She pleaded not
guilty, when her counsel moved that the
case be transferred to tho next term of tho
court, which was done. Although she is
accused of the murder of her husband and
four children, it is net the intention of the
authorities to indict or try her in the other
cases at present.
[In- Peer of Enslaud.
Strikes are becoming rather the rule tlian
the exception in Kngland, and their spread
among all the classes of work people excites
comment bordering on alarm. In the build
ing interest the discontent spread from the
carpenters and masons to the plasterers,
the smiths and the painters, the (juestionin
dispute being, there as here, as to the same
compensation for less work. The example
of these more prosperous and mechanical
trades, who have, after long struggle, re
duced their hours of labor while their pay
is still at as living a rate as formerly, is
having its natural effect upon other labor
ing men who wish to share in those advant
So long as strikes Were confined to tho
trades they did not so much as interest tho
general public, but as the movement
spreads among those on whom most well
to-do persons depend for their personal
comfort, it attracts more attention, and
suggests, like the rise in coal, private dis
Among those who have|lately threatened
to strike are the Loudon police Their
chief demand was an increase of wages and
a pension after twenty-five years' service,
II our policemen should strike and would
be content with a promise that the latter
demand should be granted, it would, we
doubt not, be given with the utmost alac
Nevertheless, it means something in
Lmdon, where length of service depends on
good behavior and not upon how well a
man can "run the machine" in his ward.
The demands of the London policemen will
probably be granted as both reasonable
and just, and the city people not bo left, as
they began to fear tbey might be, without
The postmen propose to follow the police
men's example, their complaint being the
same, of too much work and too little pay.
They may find it hard, however, to get a
favorable hearing. A policeman roust be
an able bodied man ; a postmftn need not
necessarily have the qualification of great
strength and courage, if he is only a good
walker. The fact stands in the way of
their being listened to patiently, that boys
can be and are hired as letter-carriers at
low wages. Not so with the omnibus
drivers; it requires a large power of endur
ance to sit, as the London omnibus drivers
are said to do, fourteen or fifteen hours a
day on their boxes, in all weathers, with
only fifteen minutes intermission the while
for a hasty meal. These men are propos
ing to combine for their own protection,
but as their labor, severe as it is, can hard
ly be called skilled labor, they will pro
bably encounter difficulties.
Harder still is the case of the seamstress
es and the milliners. They work as many
hours, if not mere ; their labor is far more
wearing, and they are far more poorly paid
than the omnibus drivers. A feeble cry
comes from them now and then and they
appeal to the men of their class to include
them in the demand for some relaxation
from toil. But it is only a feeble cry ; they
can do nothing by combination, for they
are too issolated and too spiritless to com
bine. So their case is passed by in Eng
land as it is here, as that of the class most
pitied, most neglected, and most holpless
of all others. The sewing women is to be
content that we listen to " The Song of
' the Shirt, " and sing and say other
! pretty and sentimental things about her.
1 But the most remarkable movements of
1 all are those which have been made in
1 Yorkshire and Lancashire. They should
rather be called lockouts than strikes, as
■ their object is to compel compliance with
. terms in those who receive pay. They
. seem to bo in the hands of woman exclu
sively, and began witii the determination
, to put down the price of milk. That was
) successful. Next they tried the butchers,
in some places refraining from eating meat
. altogether, unless it could be bought at a
. certain price, and in others using the pre
\ served meats brought from Australia iv
. place of fresh meat.
The women are determined, and hold on
, with admirable courage, and the butchers
■ are obstinate. In one place, Hudderfield,
1 the posiliou is complicated by a new move
i of the butchers, who, protesting against the
r high price of cattle and the exclusion of
f healthy foreign stock from the English
c market, have had all (heir shops closed by
agreement for about a fortnight. So the
women of Hudderfield are obliged to go
t without fresh meat whether they will or
t no. It was, no doubt, their own act, how
g ever, which compelled this practical retort
- of the butchers, and so far the movement
c for cheaper meat is successful,
s This sort of evidence of a determination
it on the part of the poor people of England to
;. improve their condition is shown by the la
i- borers of all classes all over the country,
c including even farm laborers and railway
ir porters. If England were filled with that
i, pauper labor we have heard so much about
c there could be no general movement of this
kind, which shows the existence of means
to fall back upon. It shows, besides, a
if growing intelligence in the people, who aro
ir not content with a bare subsistence.
Clumsy and mistaken as their way of eviuc
-- ing it, it is nevertheless the evidence ol
;, thrift, and a thrift that thinks.— N, V,

Third Congressional District Democratic Con
; This Convention met at tlie Exchange
Hotel at 12 o'clock to-day. and was thrown
1 into utter confusion at the outset over the
temporary organization. The excitement
was finally allayed with the did of a shoe
I box full of insurance company fans, which
[were distributed through the meeting, and
1 (the business of tho convention proceeded.
It so slowly, however, from one
cause Or another, that we were enabled to
get only a few items in time for this edi

Excitement ran high during the taking of
the vote, and it soon became apparrcnt that
George D. Wise was the favorite. Several
votes were changed from Daniel to Wise
before the vote was announced.
Capt. Wise was nominated on the first
ballot. Four wards of the city cast their
unanimous vote for him. Two wards cast
a unanimous vote for Burwell.

Unwholesome Fruit, vegetables,
&C.—The present is the critical point in
the season, when fatal diseases are apt to
follow the least imprudence in diet, and it
is all-important that tho strictest sanitary
regulations should be enforced. Not only
should the ordinance prohibiting the sale of
unwholesome meats, vegetables and fruits,
be rigidly enforced in our market spaces,
