Thc Address of General Preston.
We copy tho following correspondence
from the Richmond Whiff, of the 16th:
The editors of the Enquirer and Eta
miner having declined to publish tho en
eluaed paper, I respectfully request tho
editor of the Whig to do so.
To THIS EDITORS OF THE ENQUIRER
AND EXAMINER: Tho committee of invi?
tation for the late fair consisted of Wm,
T. Sn thor!! n, (President,) R:chard Bar?
ton Hszali and myself. By thnt commit?
tee, Qeneral Preston was invited to
deliver the address before tbe State Agri?
cultural Society, and Maj. Sutherlin and
myself, severally, backed tho invitation
by private letters. The committee also
invited Mr. Capron, of the Agricultural
Burean, and General Wise to deliver ad?
dresses. As one of that committee, and
tho personal friend of General Proston,
I, with many others, have been much
mortified by the manner in which Gene
sal Preston hds been treated for his mag?
nificent address, which all tho carpers at
bim combined could not havo made.
One of the misrepresentations of him
was so gross, that I addressed him n note
upon the subject, which, with his reply,
I endose you, and hope you will pub?
lish, notwithstanding your unjust and
inhospitable assault upon him. For tho
rest, the address will vindicate him when
it is published; but it may be proper to
say that I know that General Preston
went upon the stand to speak with thc
determination not to ntter one syllable
which could grate upon the ears of the
most tender-hearted "loyalist" who was
of Bane mind. JAMES LYONS.
RICHMOND, November 9, 18G9.
To Gena al J. S. Preston-lix DEAS
SIR: I have been much surprised to hear
that you are charged with having said
you desired to see no Northern men in
the South except as servants and labor?
ers. I know, as I heard your address,
that you did not say so, but I think il
duo to yourself, aa well as to tho South,
that you should state at once, in antier
pation of tho publication of yonr address
what you did say, and, therefore, I beg
yon to do so. With the greatest respee!
and regard, yonr friend,
RICHMOND, November 9, 1869.
Hon. James Lyons-MY DEAR SIR: ]
have received yonr note of this morning
telling me that I am charged with hav
ing said in my address to the Agricultu
ral Society, that I "desired to seo n<
Northern men in the South except a;
servants and laborers."
You are altogether correot in your as
sertion that I auid no such thing. Yoi
tell me, however, that it is due to mysel
and the Sooth to state at once what '.
did say. I do not hold myself respoosi
ble to the misinterpretations of that ad
dress whioh have been made in Rich
mond or elsewhere. But I am responsibl
to yon and other friends, who, knowinj
my sentiments on public affairs, invitei
me to deliver it, for the expression o
those sentiments and for their just un
derstanding by the public. I, therefore
comply in part, but I hopo sufficiently
with your requisition, leaving tbe rest t
be rectified on the publication of tho ad
The whole text aud scope of the ad
dress was to show that the people of Vii
gioia were peculiarly bound hy their tn
ditions and history, to devote themselvo
to material development, os by that alon
the Commonwealth of Virginia cool
ever hopo to regain her lost "rights an
privileges." This I endeavored to il hu
trato and enforce by appeals to tho ri
corded history of popular governtncui
in ancient and modern times, and moi
especially to the origin, the history au
the great works of Virginia np to th
As far as this theme would allow,
avoided references to the present civil an
politioal condition of Virginia, or ht
present relations with the Govornmei
and people of the United States. I seri
ptilously avoided tho use of ono phroi
calculated, or intended at least, to c
acerbate the people of Virginia again
that Government or people. At the san
time, it was not my vocation to igno
history for the purposo of palliating e
istiog bitterness or encouraging politic
and economical affiliations, which I d
not comprehend, und perhaps, therefor
did not approve. Any other conr
would have been ungracious and nngrul
fill to yon and dishonest of me. I su
in substance that I believed Virginia d
not need foreign capitol, ns in my jud
ment her best and sufficient capital w
in ber earth, her air and her waters, a
in the brains and hearts of her peop
That what she most needed was skill*
manual und muscular labor, of both
which abe had b*en violently despoil*
that tho Saxon, Irish, Swiss and Fron
was what she needed, with Virginians
work with ?nd direct them. The idea
limiting Northern immigration to "e
vants and laborers" is simply absurd,
donbt if there are one thousand nati
born Northen men in the world in t
capacity of servants, and who ever i
?ieots, tor a moment, that Northern fa
?borers contd be induced to oome
what they are taught by many to belie
and in their elections to denounce, ai
God-forsaken land? Yet, I did not,
word or phrase, pretend to exclude th
or their more enlightened classes. It
trne tu?t I did 'emphatically recommend
that Virginians should bo employed aa
managers and workers of yonr mines,
farms and factories, believing that such
men as Maury, Snthcrliu, Anderson and
Ru flin, of whom there aro hundreds, aro
quite equal to thoBe duties. I did also,
with equal emphasis, advise against tho
introduction of tho New England free
school system, believing it by no means
adapted to Virginin, and tliat Washing?
ton College, William aud Mary and the
University conld furnish better systems.
Thin, then, is tbe head and front of
my offending. If there be treason or
folly in it, I mnst submit to tho penalty.
But suppose the charge true. Had I
been making an agricultural, address nt
Philadelphia, Albuny, Boston or Provi?
dence, and had said I did not want Vir?
ginia capital or Virginia managers for
mines, farms and factories, but only Vir?
ginia negroes (now by law and conceded
authority holding superior citizenship)
for menial service, while the enlightened
white men of tho North were capable of
managing their own affairs, I nm inclined
to think I would have escaped tho severe
criticism I have been subjected to for
saying in Virginia, that native born Vir?
ginians bave bruins enough to manage
their own affairs, and that they should be
impelled by the pride of virtuous and
free ancestry to do so.
The charge is not true. I will not re?
tort by alleging improper motives for its
origin. My address will be published,
us literally as I can make it in the words
I used in its delivery, and those who
choose to read it, moy seo whether I
have over-praised Virginia, at tho ex?
pense of New Eugland, to an extent cal?
culated to irritate the sensibilities of
those moHt delicate in tho new born love
between the sections.
I use this occasion, my dear sir, to ex?
press to yon and the mauy friends whose
g?nerons courtesy has sustained me
under somewhat painful circumstances,
my heart-felt gratitude and my profound
regret, that, in the performance of a duty
of filial patriotism, I may have mistaken
the prevailing sentiment of Virginia, if
I have done so. I am, with cordial re?
gard, yours faithfully,
JOHN S. PRESTON.
THK SURVIVORS' BANQUET.-Last even?
ing the members of tho newly organized
State Survivors'Association partook of a
ban quot tendered them by tho survivors
of Charleston. Tho festive board was
spread in the fine dining hall of the
Mills House, and the proprietors of that
establishment showed, by the abundant
?nd sumptuous manner in which they
furnished the table, their determination
that the Mills Honse, whilo in their
oharge, shall not nnbeseem its old repu?
tation. Col. E. McCrady, Jr., presided
at the main table, assisted by the vice
Presidents, Col. C. Irvine Walker, Maj.
T. G. Barker, Dr. J. E. Prioleao and
Col. J. E. Hunt. Tbe banquet passed
off vory pleasantly. Among the promi?
nent guests were Gens. Kershaw and

the Hon. J. B. Campbell and Rev. W.
B. W. Howo.-Charleston Netos, 19th.
RIOT IN CHATHAM SQUARE.-About il
p. m., on Sunday, one of the Hibernian
societies was passing up Chatham Sq tiaro,
on its return from a funeral, when the
driver of car 178, of tho Third avenue
railroad, forced his car through tho ranks
of the society. Tho driver was struck
by ono of tho members of thu society,
somo of the car passengers interfered,
and the fight immediately became gene?
ral. Capt. Jourdan, of the Sixth pre?
cinct, with a section of men, soon ap?
peared on the ground, and charging
through the immense crowd that had
congregated, succeeded in quelling the
disturbance. Only one arrest was made.
Eor half an hour, tho scene on the square
was one of wild excitement and confu?
sion. The wonnded were hurried away
by their friends, and their injuries could
not be ascertained.

The cap-stono of the monument to tho
Confederate dead, in Richmond, Va.,
was placed in position on tho 8th. Seve?
ral accidents had occurred in tho at?
tempts to accomplish this work, but no?
body had been hurt, and on Monday, as
tho hugo mass of rook was hanging over
tho monument, everybody looked for?
ward to another breaking of tho derrick.
No one was disposed to uudertake tho
perilous duty of climbing to the top and
placing tho stone in position except
Thomas Stanley, a white penitentiary
convict from Lynchburg, who boldly
volunteered to do it, und did accomplish
tho feat. The crowd looked on in silenco
uutil tho work was done, and then lustily
cheered the mau for his bravo deod.
Ned O'Baldwin, tho Irish giant, who
was arrested with Joe Wormald for prize
fighting in Ly un field, Mass., in October,
1808, was sentenced yesterday to eigh?
teen months' hard labor in the House of
Correction. O'Baldwin stated in his de?
fence that Wormald had dogged bim and
assaulted him nntil ho was bound to
fight. He appeared deeply affected over
his sentence and said it was all up with
him now. Wormald escaped some time
ago by giving straw bail, his bondsman
being seat to jail for perjury.

The consolidation of the two most popular Southern Companies ia full of advantages to tho
policy-holdors of both Companies. Its expenditures will be leen, and with less relative risk,
i'ho futuro dividendo will bo more certain, and probably greater in amount, and a better re?
served lund created.
NO BIGHT of old policy-holders will be affected; they will continue to pay thc same rate as
j bc forte, to hold tho same policies as b< fore; to havo tho same rights, benefits and privileges as
before, and havo equal present security with greater future benefit than before. All renewals
of old policios will bo in namo of new Company, under special authority from the respective
Directors of the old Companies.
A NEW CHARTER was obtained with tho rights of policy-holders guaranteed, and we cati
spe cial attention to the following desirable features in said charter:
"SEC. '2. Tho business ortho Company shall bo to make insurance on tho lives of individual?
ill all tho brunches of Life Insurance; to grant, purchase or dispose of aunuitics or ro-insure
"SEC. I. Tho bnsinoss of the Com piny SHALL bo conducted on tho plan of DISTItlBUT
I NO TO Tl IK POLICY-HOLDERS THE PROFITS of tho busim HS, as her. inatter provided,
unless by the consent ot thc assured tho policy selected is non-participating."
"SEO. 15. This Company may issue poll ci? a on tho liv? s of husbands and parents, or others,
f.ir tho benefit of wives and families, or other beneficiaries interested in their lives-as ances?
tors, descendants, creditors or dependents, ai.d tho samo shall not bo liable for tho debts OT
contracts of ibo assured, except as provided in the policies issued."
. SEC. IC. Tho Company may issuo policies payable IN GOLD : Prutidcd, premiums are paid
in the samo." HMi
"SEO. 16. Tho permanent investment of funds shill be in mortgages or Bond on UN EX CUM
BEItF.D BEAL ESTATE WORTH DOUBLE THK AMOUNT LOANED."
We would also call attention to tho rights secured in polity us part of the contract.
Rights of partv to non forfeiture in au tts policies.
Bights of party to ro-instatement- paid np policy, and surrender value whore "inter ventiou
of armies" or any other caneo cuts the insur? d off from home office. This feature, omitted in
policies of Northern Companies, cost the Southern people very heavily in tho lato war. and
should make them seek the only Company that provides against such contingency in future.
Soma Companies now have in their policies, tba! putics who "luke up arms ?? gainst" certain
named States, "or tho United states." render their policy null and void This is making cer?
tain what was beforo uncertain, and is too great a mingling politics, war and lifo insurance.
