The Man of Policy.
"1 have no politics—policy is my poli
tics." This is Mahone's motto. When, says
the Richmond Stale, he thought he could be
nominated for Governor by the Democrats
in 1877 he was a Democrat—all for policy.
Failing in this, ho organized his repudiation
faction—all for policy—arjjl by enlisting a
portion of the colored vote and a good
many Democrats who thought the State
debt should be readjusted he got iuto pow
er. He supported the Hancock aud En
glish ticket in 1880—all for policy. But he
supported it in a bogus way. In this he
lost his following, for the mass of Demo
crats voted the regular Hancock and En
glish ticket. Then ho sold out to the Re
publican Administration —all for policy.
The debt question being settled, his Dem
ocratic followers began to leave him,-but
he raised the cry, The Readjuster party
must stick together, or the Democratic par
ty will undo what we have done. And not
withstanding the fact that the Democrats
accepted the settlement ofthe debt, so loud
did Mahone make this cry that he succeeded
in retaining many of the ignorant and mis
guided in his Ring, which now fairly leeks
with corruption. With no principle aud
no issue Mahone keeps together his mongrel
following by appealing to the worst pas
sions of the iguorant, and by giving his
henchmen a share of the spoils. For poli
cy, Mahone rewards his servants at tho ex
pense of tho State. For policy, Mahone,
to streii-tlieu his rotten cause, makes
stronger lib alliance with the colored peo
ple by appointing two ne_;ro trustees on the
School Hoard of Richmond, these negroes
to have a voice in the management of a
■while superintendent and the white schools
of the city. For policy, -Mahone runs the
Btate with an eye single to his advancement,
demoralizes the navy-yard at Norfolk, dis
poses of all the Federal patronage in Vir
ginia: and, in fine, so far as he can, turns
upside down our entire social and political
fabric. This is his policy—to do everything
he can to aggrandize himself and to spite
bis political enemies. Will the people of
Virginia submit to it auy longer ? If every
man in our State whohates trickery, treach
ery, and tyranny will but go to the polls in
November Mahoneism will end forever.

Gould and some half a dozen other men
could have prevented the strike very easily
if they had desired, but that they did not
vish to prevent it, for the reason that they
desired to have the stock to fall as low as
possible when they would buy up large
quantities at very low prices, and then they
would, witn seeming reluctance, accede to
the demands of the strikers, when the stoc .
"sell and thereby make large sums of money by
would go up in price, aud they would then
the strike. This may be the result, though

Richard F. Bn___n_.—The Battimortast,
of Saturday last, contains a likeness of
Ricbaul i-\ Beirne, Esq., Editor sod Pro
prietor of the Richmond State, who re
cently wounded W. C. Elam, Esq., Editor
of the Richmond Whig, in a duel near
Waynesboro' iv this county, accompanied
by a brief sketch of his life. When we
knew him as a bright, studious, and well
behaved boy in Lewisburg, W. Va., he was
familiarly called "Little Dickey Beirne,"
and was then, as now, a universal favorite.
Ti would be cpiito a misnomer to call him
"Little Dickey" now, as he weighs 225
pounds. "Tall oaks from little acorns

"Seven wise men."—Greece had her
"seven wise men,'" and so has Virginia.
When Richard F. Beirne, editor of the
Richmond State, had his diflicuity with
Col. Klam, there were others besides Elam
who felt aggrieved by the article of Beirne
which caused the Beirue-Elam duel, and
some of the Mahone party ventured the
prediction that Beirne would not live a
mouth as there were seven men who intend
ed to challenge him, ono after the other, till
Beirne should bo killed. In this state of
affairs ofwhich Beirne was cognizant, he
was anxious to be free to accommodate
these seven valiant gcutlemeu, and as soou
as he became so by the _cfiou of Ihe au
thorities in Richmond and it became known
that he was free to except challenges and
willing to accommodate all who wished to
meet him 0:1 the field, these seven men,
who professed to be anxious to shed his
blood, upon "tho S'.'ber second thought,"
like their valiant prototype— Fallstail'—
concluded tliat "discretion was the better
part of valor,''and from that time to this
these gentlemen, liko the "boy tbe calf ran
over," have had '-nothing to say,"' and by
their judicious conduct in this respect have
gained for themselves the distinction of be
ing the "seven wise men" of Virginia.
M[_i;i> Schools. —When it is asser ed
that the policy of .Mahoue leads inevitably to
mixed schools,the followers ot Mahone deny
it, aud say that there is no danger of mixed
school.-, and that the colored peopl- them
selves do not desire them. The evidence
is conclusive, not only that they do desire
mixed schools, but that they are now tak
ing steps to secure them. The convention
of colored editors that assembled recently
in St. Louis adopted a resolution in favor
of mixed schools. They are intelligent
representatives of their race, aud they
know that tho colored people desire mixed
schools, and they will do all they can to
have them, aud it will be effected in this
titate in a comparatively short time if Ma
houe succeeds in his political schemes
Beware, beware.
A Just Reruke—We re member to have
seen once, directly after the war, old Com
modore Vanderbilt, a plainly dressed, plain
looking old gentleman, driving a sham
bling horse, aud seated in au old open-top
buggy, making his way slowly through the
dashing crowd of fashionable people, with
gay equipages, in Fifth Avenue. He looked,
for all the world, like an old country gen
tleman, who was driving into town to sell
his crop of wool, or other product of the
field. Nobody would have taken him to be
the possessor of millions.
Well, tho following anecdote, which con
veys a good moral, is related of the old
Commodore:
"At Saratoga, on oue occasion, when
sitting on the piazza of a hotel, a somewhat
over-dressed lady approached and claimed
his acquaintance. The Commadore rose
and talked affably with her, while his wife
and daughter snified the air with scorn.
'Father,' said the young lady, as the com
modore resumed his seat, 'didn't you re
member that vulgar .Irs. B—as the woman
who used to sell poultry to us at home ?'
'Certainly,' responded the old gentleman
promptly, 'and I remember your mother
when she used to sell root beeer at three
cents a glass over in ,Tersey, when I went
up there from Staten Island peddling oys
ters out of my boat.' "
The Commodore showed his good sense
in the above, and very forcibly reminded*
his plutocratic daughter that, in a country
like ours, the aristocracy of wealth often
rests on slender foundation., and cannot
plume itself on genealogy, to any great ex
tent. — Lynch bury 1 iryinian.
Robert Bonner, of New York, editor of
the ledger and one of the most successful
advertisers of tho day, says of advertising,
in answer to a correspondent: "Oue of the
points of good advertising is to address the
same people over and over again. For in
stance : Suppose you were introduced, with
about 500 others, to the President, the
chances are that the President would not
remember you. But if you had an oppor
tunity of seeing him again, and said, 'Mr.
President, I am Charles Wolsey, of Brook
lyn ; Senator So-and-so did me the honor of
introducing nic to you,' and you did this
two or three times, you would be sure to
Ibe remembered. In the same way au ad
vertisement presented once is forgotten al
most invariably, and so thrown awaj',
wkilo one presented three or four times
makes an impression." Mr. Bonner ought
to be a good judgo of such things, as a
great part of the foi tune he has amassed
.as acquired through judicious and per-
I sistent advertising.
Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Zephyrs :
Between Richmond and Old Point Comfort
the Chesapeake and Ohio touches the banks
ofthe historic Chical.omiuy, aud a small
island may be seen from the train as it
stops at Lanexa station. It was on this is
land that Capt John Smith, being over
powered by a large baud of savages, was
made captive and carried over the peninsu
la to the headquarters of the renowned In
dian chief, Powhatan, on the banks of the
York. The march was very circuitious,
and during it a number of Indian villages
were visited. The captors, placing Capt.
Smith upon their shoulders, paraded up
and down before the wigwams of the de
lighted savages, amid the noise of iheir
queer musical instruments aud their tri
umphant shouts. The reception of Powha
tan ard the rescue of Capt. Smith from tho
toma 1. awks ofthe savages by thu fair Po
cahontas took place at Werowomooa, where
Powhatan held his court.

Failing in this, the younger brother suc

certain point they met the elder Clayton

started to settle down in' the mountain..
Four weeks afterwards tiie youug lady was

The Strike of the Brotherhood of
Telegraphers.—The disagreement be
tween the telegraph operators ofthe leading
lin.s and their employers culminated at
noon Thursday in a general strike through
out the country, the Western Union, Mutual
Union, Baltimore and Ohio, American 1 _ap
tual Union of Canada losing at the same
id, Great Northwestern of Canada and Mu
moment all that considerable part of their
force belonging to the Telegraphers' Broth
erhood, estimated at 8,000 persons, includ
ingl.OOO women. The demands ofthe Broth
erhood, says the Baltimore Sun, are for an
increase of 15 per cent, ou all salaries, the
restriction of a day's work to eight hours
and a night's work to seven hours, equal
pay to both sexes for equal work, extra pay
for Sunday work, and certain advances in
the remuneration for work done by the
Wheatstone system calculated to prevent
the general substitution of this for the Morse
system. To these demands the Western
Uuion Telegraph Company replied with cal
culations aiming to show their extravagance
and impractibility. As usual, there are
two sides to the question. In fact, there are
three, tho business public having incom
parably greater interests at stake than
either of the parties to the conflict. On
this aocouut it is to be regretted that the
action taken yesterday does not bear more
evidence of having been arrived at after due
consideration of all the interests' involved.
It would have been better if there had been
more effort on the part of the telegraph
companies, as well as their employes, by a
calm statement of their differences, by
rational discussion and the cultivation of a
conciliatory temper, to avoid a rupture full
of injury to the innocent public.

Rightly assuming that tho vital principle
for which the Readjuster party was organ
ized, has been accomplished, aud that there
is not, upon the other baud, any practical
question to keep those who are honestly
Democrats, apart, our contemporary re
sponds to the sneering allusions indulged
in by the Mahoneites, to what they arc
pleased to call, '' The Funder Democracy,''
and then pays its respects to their leader.
Says the Virginian: —
"If tho Democrats of to-day are sailing
under false colors, it does not lie in the
mouth of Mahone and his followers to raise
the question. It would be liko the ' 'pot call
ing the kettie black.'' Pray, what colors are
they flying? Catling themselves Readjust
ers they have no claim to Readjustment in
any manner, shape, or form. They have
no. more claim thereto than the "Funders,*'
who never were iv the Readjuster party,
but who are now willing (with a sense of
patriotism) to lot the question rest. Hav
ing deserted the party; having gone back
upon the principles of the party upon which
it gained its victories ; having repudiated
that Jeffersoni-ii Democracy which was
claimed by the Readjuster party as tho key
stone of its arch and the corner-stone of its
structure; having gone over to the Stalwart
branch of the Radical party and endorsed
tho administration of that party; iv the
name of high heaven what right have they
to criticise the Democracy or the Readjust
erism of any voter in this State ?
"Let them rather look to their false col
ors. Let them consider that they have
.Mahone and his Democracy, better than that
of Hilt's, to defend, and if thf "Funder
Democracy*' is any worse than that, every
good man of the country should feci that
the fate awaiting Democratic institutions
in America, is as dire as that which huug

Growth of the Great Sanger.
The lethargic liver of to-day feebly pro
tests that no danger threatens him and pee
vishly begs to let him rest. He shakes his
head wearily when you tell him that un
scrupulous politicians are cultivating the
already awakened ambition of the negro
for free and unrestrained social equality,
and languidly murmurs that all will come
right in the end. He never sees around him,
and indeed never before him, as his eyes
are always cast down in idle and useless
meditation on every other subject than the
issue of the hour. To him we do not ad
dreis ourselves. He is hopeless. But we
do ask the earnest and enlightened people
who by good fortune largely outnumber
their listless fellow-men, to consider the
significance of an occurrence to which we
referred on Saturday. It is the action of a
convention of colored men, editors of news
papers and representatives of the hopes and
wishes of their race.
In an Associated Press dispatch, which
gives an account of their proceedings, we
find the following resolution, which re
ceived the approval of the colored men as
sembled:—
"St. Louis, July 13. 1883.—During yes
terday afternoon's session of the Colored
Press convention, the Committee on Reso
lutions submitted a series of resolves de
claring in favor of co-education of tho races
and of mixed sckools and teachers," etc.
Even the drowsy protester agaiust all
dangers must bs aroused by this. What is
the meaning of this demand for mixing the
races in the schools ? Repulsive as is the
very thought, the consequence of such
equality is abhorrent; for it means the
boundless and untrammeled mixing of tha
two races into one mongrel horde—a dis
grace to the earth and its own final de
stroyer.
Upon the ignorant and misguided col
ored mau but a small part of the blame for
this false aud foolish ambition must rest. —
These who are responsible for the cultiva
l ion of this growing evil are renegade white
men—political adventurers—such as are to
be found iv every State, and, unfonmnately,
in no small numbers in our own Virginia.
These unscruplous seekers after place are
ready at all times to sacrifice their neigh
bors aud friends and even their own fami
lies for the sake of the spoils of office. In
their corrupt minds flesh and blood weighs
as nothing against public plunder. To
them all that mau is wont to hold most pure
and precious becomes a trifle. Office, office,
office! is their cry. Their rage for office is
a ravaging disease. It sweeps before it
body, brain, heart, everything.
W hat man of honest mind can fail to see
that the hopes expressed by the colored
convention in St. Louis were long ago
aroused in Virginia by the base conspirators
who now control this State ? Consider the
proportion of colored to white voters, and
remember that if to the one hundred and
twenty-eight thousand colored not so much
as forty thousand out of two hundred aid
six thousand whites be added, the mongrel
party will have a majority. Thus less than
one-fifth of the white voters can, with the
solid colored vote, keep Virginia in danger
of the wot st evil that bas ever threatened
it, aud not only keep it in danger, but be
forced in time to make the attempt to i üb
jeet the people to that evil; for i__t__ mon
grel party the forty thousand whites would
form less than one-fourth, and they would
be compelled to accede to the demands of
their allies, who number nearly one hun
dred and thirty thousand.
A smaller vote than our estimate was
cast at the late election, before tho c-.ipita
tion tax was repealed, hut that the the pro
portion of whites to colored was larger than
that we have gisren, we do not believe. On
the contrary, we believe it to have been
even smaller, and on that beli fwe nest ihe
hope of our success this Fall, (an our peo
ple fail to know their duty aud to be fully
aroused to do it earnest y and houestly iv
the coming campaign? When a number of

time for hard facts ; it is a time lor the tell
ing of unpleasant truths. The people of
Virginia know that the santinients of that
couventiou iv St. Louis have been sowu

A Hobsiblk Accidkxt. —Las*. Saturday,
when about finishiog a haystack, Mr. Wal
lace Johnston, son of if r. .1, T. Johnston,
who lives near Lewisburg, met with an ac
cident, the details of which are too delicate
and hmrible iv their nature to publish. It
seems that before finally rounding off his
work the young man needed a stake for the
purpose of driving it into the top of the
stack in order to make it secure. He sent
tlisj man who was assisting him, away to
get a suitable piece of timber for the pur
pose indicated, but, before leaving, his com
panion left a long pitch- fork standing against
the stack, handle upwards. In the meau
time a rain came on, and the absent party
noj returning, Mr. Johnston sought to leave
his posiiio ii, aud aimed to slide from the
top of the stack to feue ground. Not know
ing the position ofthe fork he .ilippgrj ngon
it, the handle entering hi 3 person and "in
flicting a deep and horrible wound. His
weight sent the prongs of the fork into the
ground, aud in his effort to disengage him
self from his agonizing situation he was
thrown face foremost some distance down
the hill, falling with great force upon his
head and shoulders. The fall itself was
sufficient io have coused death, but his in
juries in this particular wore nothing com
pared with his other troubles. In au almost
i;isensible condition, and alone, he made
his way ts the house, where ho las been
suffering great and 3K;r. tiating agonies up
to the present writing. All that could be
done by skillful physicians and kind friends
has been extended towards his relief, but
little hopes, if any, have beeu entertained
from the first that he will recover, His
case is one which excites the tendei . st sym
pathies, but the details regarding his inju
ries are too shocking and horrible to dwell
upon.— (frrepbrier (W, P..) Independent,

X Speech from a Fall-Blooded Pawnee
Indian.
Pawnee Agency, Indian Territory, 1
July 7th, 1883. I
My Agent, Superintendent, and Teacher of
this School,.and all my other friends:
Never developed in me the thought, the
power, aud the eloquence of an immortal
Webster or Clay; but I can see that we are
psssing from tho strength of numbers and
savagery to higher ranks, and the discovery
of a new sense to us. As my race ap
proaches the world, we see with our eyes,
hear with our ears, and we obtain knowl
edge as different from the faith of onr an
cestors as yours is from ours to-night. This
is grown from our contact with you, who
are so much more advanced in the arts and
sciences, and cultured in refinement of
thoughts and expressions.
These are the attributes of your power
over us; and as snow melts under the sun
of Spring time, so doe« the Indian of long
ago disappear before the advancing hordes
of civilization.
Your advancement in all that is grand
and sublime is a feature fixed in your
course through time, while our extermi
nation as Indians, the absorption of a
weaker by a stronger race is unchanged, ■
and with each succeeding year and increas
ing speed hastens to the tomb to soon be a
forgotten race.
These are solemn reflections for me; but
the inevitable cannot be changed. These
tiny hands and little hearts of the children
of my people, who are now before me, are
not longer learning war from those who
have gloried in blood and scalps, but are
now sitting in the current that is fast tak
ing them from the source of rudeness and
barbarity, soon to be lost in the great sea
of human knowledge.
It is right; it is best; and the farther they
are from camp and from the buffalo
grounds the better it is for them. I would
not have them stop on the way, but wish
to encourage every child under the sound
cf my voice to press onward. I cau now
see where I failed to tui n my opportunity
to the best account when young. I then
thought schooling was hard and unuessary:
but let me tell you, my Indian friends, that
it has been but recently since I appreciated
my little education and felt the need of
more. An Indian can have no experience
more impressive of the need of education
than to travel as I did a few years ago,
and mingle with the best people of the
largest and most populous cities in the
country. It was then and there that I
first saw the needs of my people, and wish
that all of you, young friends, could bave
my opportunity for seeing the ways of a
great people. Press forward; press on
ward-. Children, do not be discouraged,
and before you are as old as I am you will
appreciate my advice as you can not now.
And to you, Mr. Davis and my teachers,
and all the other employees iv this school,
permit me to express my pleasure and
gratitude to you for jour efforts to advance
these children, who have had good teachers
before, and whom we loved as such, but
not to compare with you all, and in no in
stanc. have I iieen so highly pleased and
hopeful of tho future of my nation as when
witnessing the exercises a few evenings ago
of the children as taught by Christian per
sons, who acknowledge their humanity
aud love their souls; and I would beg of
you the continued exercise of patience with
these children. Their Mope of miud will
not compare with yours; they . anuot reason
from cause to effect as you can, and they
sometimes become impatient when in the
di-charge of duties. Continue to bring to
your assistance the patience and courage I
haVe seen you manifest iv your tiresome
task. And though lam an Indi n, I tell
you so. that the Great Spirit, one whom
the Indians have confidence in, will reward
you for yo'jx labor, if not in this world, in
the world to come. Good night.

A Folly Mills Trami-.-About . P. M.
on Monday ot last week, as Mr. George W.
I Stover ~nd finally, residing .-.t Folly Mills,
'in Augusta county, were eating supper, Mr.
Stover noticed a man coming up the steps
and approaching the dining-room door. Mr.
S.. thinking it some one wauting his servi
ces at tho millet post-office, arose from the
table aud met t.e man at the door. He
noticed that the man put his baud in his
hip pocket and kept it there, which made
him suspieioi) . The man did not make his
business known. Mr. Stover spoke to him.
He made no reply. Then the following
conversation took place.
Mr. S.—What will you have?
Tramp— I v. ant some tobacco.
Mr.' S.—l have no tobacco
Tramp—l -want to buy a plug of tobacco.
. Ir. S.—l have no tobacco to sell.
Tramp—Havn't you.
Mr. S.—No.
The tramp still keeping his hand in his
hip pocket and advancing slowly toward
Mr. Stover.
Mr. S.—How long have you been in this
part ofthe country ?
Tramp—.Vhat do you want to know that
for ?
Mr. S.—l always like to hear how the
crops are in the different parts of the coun
try. Where are you traveling ?
Tramp—You had better shut your mouth
—with hand still in hip pocket.
Mr. S. then walked into the house, got his
revc.ver. a-id again walked to the door, and
it was only when Mr. S. drew his revolver,
with threats to shoot if he did not Uave,
that he was induced to leave the premises.—
