ONE OF THE RECONSTRUCTED
What Virginia did for the Union,
and what Radicalism has done
. Aeoordliut to Radical Reconstruction, what,
was once the State of Virginia, is not now a
State ot the Republic not a member of the
Union, hut Is a foreign and a hostile Prov-
inae, ruled by the bayonets of the standing ,
army, the officers of the Freeome-. Bureau .
and the colored race, late, slaves, that Rad
icalism has Riven the right of suffrage, to
be not only master of the situation, but of
the white race and of their late owners.
The tomb" of Washmotok; where sleeps
the heso patriot, is in what was once the
State ot Vlrrtait, and is now but a oa
quered Province, whose people are denied
the right of - self-government, and
there' the bones of him '; who' was
first in war, first in peace, and first in
the hearts of his counsrymen, will repose
until they return to their native dust, and
until the last day, when all are to be called
to an account for the deeds done in the
body. . :- ' '..
. Under her soil reposes all that was mortal
of Thomas Jkffeksok, who gave to the world
that matchless State paper, the Declaration
ot Independence, which ., Declaration, lor
three-fourths ot a century, and until Radi
calism began' its rule, gave freedom and in
dependence an existence, and a name and
a fame to the Republic. 1 The vampire
spirit of .Radical i misrule has transfer

the Union to that ot a conquered Province-
In like manner, the spot where the graves

Who, alter the war, with its loss of
hundreds of thousands of lives, and of
thousands of millions of treasure,, to settle
the question that a State cannot secede
from the Union, would ever have supposed
tbat Virginia would have been forced out,
and denied the rights secured her by the
Constitution, to which the name of Geo.
Washington, stood first, to attest its cor
rectness, and of which Madison was the
most devoted .friend and defender, thus
upsetting the result of the war, not by
force ot arms, but by Radical strategy and
Radical trampling of the Constitution un
der foot, by a half made up Congress?
' Virginia was the parent of the: Union,
but what ot that ? She is now a "conquer
ed Province," with no right that Massa
chusetts and those that Massachusetts con
trols, are bound to respect ' .',
In other days, when Virginia was indeed
a Province and so was Massachusetts, both
belonging to England, who governed both,
as Massachusetts, with her Summers and
Wilsons and ' Ben; Botxebv and those
who. do their bidding In Congress, now
govern Virginia the outrages of the
British Parliament against tbat Colony
being in assumption and in acts but as dust
in the balance, compared to those that Con
gress now assumes and commits on the
States of the South, Massach usettss appeal
ed to Virginia for aid .against aggression
The iron heel of oppression was upon
her. No direct blow had been aimed at
Virginia, but it bad been aimed and felt at
and in Massachusetts. Virginia responded
to 'that cry for help more nobly. No
sooner than the wail of the people of Bos
ton reached her Colonial Legislature, than;
tnat noble body of men, with the niatcL
less Henry,- whose eloquence was unsur
passed and unsurpassable, resolved tbat the
Colony of Virginia should make' common
cause with the Colony of Massachusetts, "
andTcommon cause Virginia did mak
that seven years' war for freedom.
No blow bad been aimed at the rights of
Virginia (he was more secure in the favor
of England's sovereign than any of th
other colonies her charter, the Constitu
tion granted to her, two hundred yeais
older than the Constitution of the Unit d
States, gave her and her people the greatest
freedom then vouchsafed by monarch to
man, but Massachusetts, her sister colony,'
was in peril, its rights were invaded, and
Virginia entered the Revolutionary war, to
avenge the wrongs and to protect the peo
pie of Massachusetts from the encroach
ments of power.
; To make the war, the clouds of which
betokened the storm then lowering around
Bunker Hill and Lexington, soon lighted
np with the .flash of rifles from men In
deadly strife, more systematic to force
a portion of the other eleven colonies who
held back In that hour of dread peril to
liberty and to life, the more effective
Virginia Invited the Thirteen Colonies to
nd delegates to a Congress, where tlie
Colonies united, by their delegates, in
Colonial Congress assembled, might better
act for the public good. The call of Vir
ginia was responded to, and thus was the
Union formed which gave birth to the Re
public and made the Colonies free and In
dependent States. That Union, tliiu
formed, was never broken, until the Massa
chusetts men in Congress, giving the lie to
the assertion tbat the Union could not be
broken by their acts, branding as false
all tbat the war bad decided to be true,
disrupted it by making Georgia, North
Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia,
members of the Union which fought the
war of independence, conquered provinces
and no longer States of the Union.
: In thus accomplishing what misproud
add ambitious men in the South had failed
to do, the right of secession, the Radical
party, it was fortunate for the country, was
ot in power when the struggle for inde-
pendenee ' ended. Then, if Virginia
bad been left out in the cold, the united
Colonies would have been but so many feeble
Republics, or else have relapsed into mon
archies. The war had left a vast debt,
due, but unpaid, to the soldiers, and no
funds or other property wherewithal
to settle it. Virginia' then owned
a dominion in the West, larger than all the
German Principalities, many times larger
than England, Ireland and Scotland com
bined, which as a gracious gift and through
patriotism alone, she gave to save the Union
by paying its debts, and in that hour of its
sorest travail, when the bright hopes of
the war were about fading away,' that glo
rious gift of Virginia saved the Union, by
saving its honor and enabling it to pay its
debts.. How fortunate It is, tbat New Eng
land, and New England Congressmen from
other States, the carpet-baggers Included,
did not live in that day of peril, tor if Vir
glnia bad then been forced out ot the
Union, she would . have taken with-her
the territory cow forming the States of the
Northwest, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Mlchi
gan, Wisconsin and other States, and parts
of States, the soil and the sovereignty. ol
which was her own property, and the union
of these .States have died of death and dis
honor almostat the honrof its birth. But
thanks to a kind Providence, the making ol
Virginia and ether States a conquered
Province,' by Radical votes in Congress
when the votes of the White. Boys in Blue
delivered at the cannon's mouth, and in
the deadly volley . ot musketry,, and at
the bayonet's point had ' decided other
wise was deferred, until the land Virginia
gave to the Union was sold, and the debts
due her Revolutionary soldiers and to her
other creditors were paid, and the Union
which Virginia formed on the Sth of Sep
tember, 1774, consisting of twelve Colonies,
saved in the hour when the Colonies bad
achieved their independence, but had no
money to carry on the Government they
had just formed, . :

Washington to the command of the army,
and bis fame - and tbat of Jefferson
and of Henry and, of Lib to the

whose borders is the spot where the war of
independence ended by the surrender of

river the tomb of Washington Is situate,
and upon one of whose noble hills the dust

WASHINGTON, September 25, 1868.
Gentlemen: In reply to yours ot 19th
instant, and to numerous other letters ad
dressed to me on the subject, I have the
honor to furnish the following account of
tbe condition ot the United States Treas
ury, as set forth in the reports of its vari
ous officers. The receipts and expend!
tnres of the Treasury may be divided into
four branches, classed as follows:
1st. The Register's receipts and expend!
2d. The Treasurer's receipts and expendi
3d. The Postofflce receipts and expend!
4th. The Navy Pension Fund.
The Register's receipts' and expend!
tures appear in the Register's reports; the
Treasurer's receipts ana expenaitures ap
near In the Treasurer's reports : the Post-
office receipts and expenditures in the re
ports of the Postmaster General ; and the
accounts of the Navy Pension Fund in the
report of the Commissioner of Pensions.
The Register's receipts are gross receipts.
The expenses of collection, drawbacks,
discounts, repayments, etc., appear in the
The following are the Kegister'3 receipts

These figures show the receipts and ex
penditures within the.year. All that oc
cur after the cloe of tbe year go on the
next year's account, so that though, it a
series of years be taken together the back
receipts and expenditures are included;
yet. it it be desirable to ascertain the total
revenue and cost of the government for
any single year by itself, it cannot be done
from these figures alone. For this reason
they are not aggregated in the Secretary's
report. Recourse must be had to the Treas
urer's receipts and expenditures, which
slso Include all receipts from sales of cap-,
tured and abandoned property, confisca
tion, prizes, sales of quartermasters' stores,
and other property, sales of war vessels,
etc.. etc-, items which do not appear in the
Register's accounts as published, and
which items during the past three years,
with the back receipts and expenditures,
have averaged nearly fifty million dollars
a year as follows:

The Treasurer's receipts and expend!
tures include some repayments, but they
principally consist, on tne one hand, ot re
:eiDts from sales of Government property
Durcbased during the war, and receipts on
account of the previous year; and on the
ther baud, of the expenditure of these
um8 in tbe War and Navy Departments,

There are some receipts in the War De
partment, I believe, which are never cov
ered into the Treasury at all. and concern
nsr which I have consequently no in form a

The Postofflce receipts and expenditures
constitute a separate branch of the public
accounts, which 13 managed as loiiows:
The receipts for poetage, &c, are applied
to the expenditures for carrying the mails.

The condition of the Navy Pension Fund
is as follows: It amounts to $13,000,000.
mainly derived from prize sales, and the
amount Is invented in United States securi
ties at 3 per cent. The interest, $390,000
er annum, forms the revenue of the fund
and such navy pensions, &c, as are author
ized bv law to be defrayed out of the fund,
form its expenditures. A trifling balance
usually remains. - . .
ESTIMATED EXPENDITURES AND APPROPRIATIONS

The estimated expenditures (summary
estimate) "for the current fiscal year, and
the amount and class ot appropriations
(detailed estimates) required to cover them,
will be found respectively in executive
documents Nos. 2 and 3. Fortieth Congress,
second session. In actual order of time the
detailed estimates preceded the summary
estimate. Taken in connection, as origi
nally printed, they contained several arith
metical discrepancies, which arose from
attempt to cut down the totals without
limiting the details. These discrepancies
are corrected in tbe following table, which

tures for 1868-9, we shall have the follow-
ing receipts: : ; .. . . :

Thus It the Treasury endeavors to meet
its current expenaitures tins year no say
nothing ot matured claims deterred, or oi
the Postofflce Deficiency). It will show a
deficit ot $134,330,303 9S at the end of
the year to - be obtained from increased
taxes or loans.
This onlortunatL.uMiiillt.Hlll 6! aflairs has
eseen bv the present able and
patriotic Secretary of the Treasury,' and
this officer did all that he was called upon
to do, when in March last, he penned the
following warning letter to the f inance
Committee of the Senate:'
MR. M'CULLOCH'S WARNING LETTER.
"Should the bill referred to become 8
law, I think it may be fairly estimated that
tbe total revenues tor the next nscal yeir
will tall from a hundred to a hundred and
twenty millions below the estimates made
in my last annual report. . It is exceeding-
ly desirable tbat taxes should be reduced,
and I should hail with pleasure the pro-;
posed reduction, if I felt assured that il
would be accompanied with a corn spond-
ing reduction of expenditures. I am f re
so say that I am greatly apprehensive thai
such a reduction of expenditures will not
be made, and that the revenues of tht
country for the next fiscal year, if the bill
now before the Senate, or in the bands ol
your committee, should become a law, will
be insufficient to meet the Interest on the
public debt and the current expenses of the
government." : i , -
But this warning was ineffectual. Tbe.
bill it alluded to was passed on the 31st
of March, 1868; and the public service, In-:
stead of being cut down, was increased
by the creation of new functions and the
appointment ot additional officers. - : ,,
In a word, the amount of service to be
performed, whether actual or nominal, is
more than it was last year, and it is there
fore vain to look for. any reduction for
The Dtpartmental estimate of customs,
receipts is $145,000,000; but taking the aver
age yield since the Imposition ot the pres
ent tariff, the customs (though import
have this year fallen very sensibly) should
yield during the year ended June 30.

to increase the public debt by the issue oi
more bonds. Tuis the Treasury has power
to do, until the whole sum of tbe public
debt amounts to 2 827 millions, or its

One Vote in Each Township will
A change of one vote to each Township
in the State will result In a triumphant
Democratic victory on the second Tuesday
of October. Do you work to make that
change. If you will work properly you can
make the change.'
Reason with Your Republican
See your Republican neighbor, and en
deavor to persuade him to vote the Demo
cratic ticket on Tuesday, the 13Lh of this
month. Every man who love his countn
should do his utmost in behaff of the Dem
Good News from the 12th District.
We had a call yesterday morning from
Hon. A. T. Walling, Chairman of the
iDcraocratic Executive Committee for tbe
12th Congressional District. It Is his im-
iression that we can safely count pn again
if at least six hundred in the Democratic
majority over last year in that District;
and he knows wereoi he speaks.
Axorresponding gain all over the State
will make the Democratic majority on the
State Ticket five thousand. ..This majority
can be secured; but every Democrat must
work from now until the close of the elec
tion on Tuesday night, as though the result
depended solely upon his individual effort.
Let the Holder of Bonds Pause
Tbe bolder of Bonds will do well to sit
down quietly and meditatively read Hon,
Aux. Dklmar's letter, giving officii! prr o'
tbat the Government is rapidly, under Re
publican rule, running into Bankruptcy.
If the Government Is to be conducted much
longer in this way, what hope is there that
the Bonds will ever be paid? What guar
antee is there that the principal and inter
est will not be repudiated?
Great Democratic Meetings.
Tbe Democratic meetings this week in
this State have been very great- where
held. At Bellelontaine 10,000 people were

A Card from John G. Thompson.
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 2, 1868.
Editor Ohio Statesman Dear Sir : I
nd the following in the Ohio State Journal
t this Gate: -::
The ' Statesman takes advantage 1 f
a blunder ot the New York Tribune to deny
vigorously that John G. Thompson has
come out for Grant. No one who knows
John would credit him with such right
eousness. But John's father has come out'
an older and better man." -:... .-;.
I am authorized to say tbat there is not a
word ot truth in the statement tbat my
father intends or has even said be would
vote for Grant. The whole thing is with
out foundation or truth in fact. Like
drowning men, the -Jacobins catch at
straws . to save them from the defeat
that so surely awaits them at the polls in
October and November.- Would, it not be
as well for our Radical friends to accept
the situation and let us have peace? - -
