and when railroads were introduced it
was not long before his vast organiza

the railroad princes of the State of New

chain of distinct railroad corporations
from Albany to Buffalo Were COnsolida-

But it was as a politician that theplain
citizen Dean Richmond acquired a na
tional reputation. "When vice president
ofthe Central railroad, he was made
chairman of the democratic State cen
tral committee. lie at once placed his
party and his road in partnership. The
jreat corporation winch he controlled
became in his hands the most pliant and
reliable political engines. Its forty mil
lions of capital and itsmany thousands
of employees all became tributary to
the democracy ot tne Mate, and mute as
much so during his vice presidency as
since he became president of the road.
JSo one man ever wielded such o'i-;an-
tic political power with so little person-

liberal man, ever ready to conciliate a
political opponent, and it is remarkable

The Xew York JH-raM gives the 3l
lowinix anecdotes of 3Ir. Uichraond z
About eight years ago Air. Jiichm ond,
while conversing with a friend on r oHt-
ical subjects, in front of the old Cla rcn
don Hotel at Buffilo, Mas approae lied
by a poor woman with two child;
and solicited for alms. Interested in tbe
conversation, 3Ir. Ikichmond in hi
usual gruff manner, told the woman to
" get out," repeating the order with : ;
oath, at tlie same time turning his bae Ik
to her. He had hardly done so or ut -tered
the words when he hastily turned .'
round, and with more kindness in his
face and manner, caught the woman by
the arm as she was leaving.
" Haven't you got a husband to sup
port you, eh ?" he said in his rough
tones and gruff manner.
The woman explained that her hus
band had been lost in a lake accident.
which Richmond remembered as having
taken place a year or so previously.
liow many children have von trot
hesKics these two r" he asked.
Two more, sir."
tan t they work, d n 7em, can t
they work ?"
" They are infants sir,"
" Oh !" said Richmond, with an air
of self reproach ; and thrusting his hand
into his pocket, he took out a roll of
bills, crumpled one of them into his
hand, and giving it to the woman,
.pushed her gently away, saying:
" Get out, now ; get out we're bu
sy." The woman moved slowly aside, but
in putting the bill away she glanced at
and discovered it to be a$20'bill. She
opened her eyes in amazement, nnd
turning around to Richmond displayed
the bill so as to show its denomination,
and said :
" See, sir, what you have given me by
" Get out get out !" cried Richmond,
petulantly ; " you d d beggars are
a nuisance. Go home go home, I tell
you. I'm busy."
His bad habit of swearing to excess
was one of the most notable of his char
acteristics, and much of his offensive
ness to others resulted from it. It was
merely. a .careless habit, however, and
was really -only the emphsis to his lan
guage. Hewvore without knowing it
in every presence.
.ine naoit once
an acquaintance who did not know
Mrs. Richmond, a einguiar idea of that
very felegant aud Christian lady," entire
ly at variance with her true character.
The gentleman had expressed 4iis sur
prise that a railroad manager who trav
eled so much by rail; had -never been
presnt at any great railroad' accident.
" Never have," Baid Richmond, but
expect to be some time. My wife,
Mrs. Richmond,-said to me -only the
the other day, says she, ' Mr. Richmond,
I expect some time or another, in your
d d long trips, you'll get your G d
d d brains knocked out by one of
these infernal locomotives.'"
The gentleman's astonishment was
only dispelled by further experience in
hearing Mr. Richmond swear.
Another incident, illustrating this care
lessness in using profane language, oc
cured during a consultation between Mr.
Richmond and a committee of New
York merchants, who were engaged in
raising funds to aid in the election of
Seymour in 1 862. A Rev. Mr. Benedict
had been arrested by Mr. Stanton and
kept some months in confinement, for
preaching a sermon on the text, "Bless
ed are the peacemakers." Mr. Bene
dict, when released, stumped his county,
told his troubles, and did much towards
electing Seymour. The committee, con
tending with Mr. Richmond, alluded to
this affair, and asked what effect it
would have in Benedict's part of the
"That will help, that Avill help," he
answered. "I met Mr. Benedict just af
ter his release, and the old mo, said he,
'Mr. Richmond, I'm going back to Erie,
by G d, sir, and I intend to hire a
a horse and wagon and go over every
d d inch of the soil till I rouse every
G d d d scoundrel in the county
to vote ior Sevmonr.
" You don t mean to say, Mr. Kich-
mond," said a committee-man, "that
the Rev. Air. Benedict swore in that
" Xo, no," said Richmond, apologet
ically, "but, by G d, he meant it."
rio absolutely innocent was the man
in this careless use of vulgar and profane
language,that lie was frequently led in
to mishaps bv them. A minister once
approached him with an introductory
etterirom Richmond s who, containing
a request that he should be passed over
the Central Railroad "ou her account."
Mr. Richmond received the minister
with great courtesy, and was about to
write him a free pass, when the other
begged him not to do so, if it was in any
wav a violation of the rules of the road.
Xot at all," .said Air. Richmond, wri
ting away, "every d d vagabond in
the country comes to me lor passes.
ion are entitled to one. j
lie never saw the mistake he had
made, and the minister was
O bilge I to
exercise his good nature iu suggesting,
as an explanation, that lie had meant
that as every vagabond got a pass, cer
tainly a minister of the Gospel was en
titled to one."
One of those vagabonds applied to
Mr. Richmond for a pass just after a
bitter political contest, daring which
the vagabond who had been in charge
of a political campaign paper, had great
ly aliased the Albany regency generally,
and Dean Richmond in particular. Mr.
Richmond knew him, but without hesi
tation, and with apparent satisfaction,
gave him a pass from lutialo to Albany.
The ."vagabond"' it-ad it over, and ban
ding it back to him said
"i'lease Air. Richmond, add to it, 'and
"Oh!" said Mr. Richmond, "You are
coming back, are you? See you d d
iirst. Pay your way;"' and with that he
destroyed the pass," and the "vagabond"
The illegibility of Air. Richmond's
hand writing was proverbial, and many
amusing anecdotes in relation to the
difficulty of deciphering his characters
are related, although no doubt, like the
late President Lincoln, he is made to
father some jokes which do not legiti
mately belong to him. It is said that an
einolovee of the Cent re 1 Railroad, at
!.. ,,,.. y.i'...l...l M,. l.M.diiiwoi.I i
and received nn rbruiit dismissal, iv IM
then Vice President of the road, bricily
informing him that "his services could
be dispensed with after date,'' and sign
ed ". Richmond," in the usual vigo
rous style. This card, so says the story
was used by the discharged official as a
family pass over the road ior twelve
months, the conductor being satisfied
with the sight of the well known sig
nature, without attempting to read the
body of the document.
- When that obi public functionary, James
Buchanan, supposed himself to stand some
chance ot" renomination for the Presidency,
the manner in which the New York delega
tion was divided with Mr. Dickinson, puz
zled the Washington politicians, and Mr.
Buchanan wrote a letter to Mr Richmond,
dilating on the dangerous condition of the
country, requesting to lie informed by Mr.
11. of the position that would probably be
taken by the New York delegates, and assur
ing him that any information given should
be held strictly " private and confidential."
When Mr Richmond received this communi
cation, an intimate political friend to whom
it was shown, inquired whether he intended
to reply to it ? " Oh, by G ," said Mr. Rich
mond, " of course I must answer a letter from
ilic President," and he took a sheet of paper
and wrote his answer. As there was a sly
humor in his eye when he made the above
remark, it is fair to conclude that he did not
Strive to make his writing any plainer than
usual. At all events, the letter, when writ
ten, would have puzzled a Philadelphia law
yer, had he desired to glean any information
from it. Those who have seen Mr. R.'s
vxitiug even at the best of times, will imag
se how little Mr, Buchanan learned from
be prvate and confidential " epistle of the
mtinients and policy of the New Yorkers.
Au episode to this is related, but of its
Cthfulness we cannot so well vouch. It is
'id that Mr. Buchanan subsequently reques
1 I an intimate friend to call on Mr. Rich
1 eid, while in this city, previous to his de
! tfurc for Charleston, to " -pump " him on
c same subject. The story goes that this
n Ilcinan, after -a circumlocution, asked
n jRiclnnond the plain question, " Now Mr.
c, fcmond, can yea tell me 'confidentially
-your New York delegation is going V
y bll," replied Mr. TL, " I think some of
en 1 re going by land, and some by water."
j jri't mean that," was the response, " I
jan Siow are they going to vote V Oh,"
id ffr. Richmond, " I don't know, and I
n't believe they know themselves." This
ised 'e interview.
pcrs wnally Mr. Richmond was stout and
rly with a frame ef uncommon muscular

: Union Meeting in Guilford. County.
After short public notice-ibr a meeting of
Joyal citizens at Cobles' .Schoolhouse, on tho
16th instant a large assembly "of the citi
zens of this County convened ; also, were
present citizens of Alamance and Randolph
Counties. The meeting was organized by
appointing Col. Abram Clapp, as .Chair
man, and W. M. Mebane was requested to
act as Secretary.
The Chairman explained the object of the
meeting to be for the consultation of Union
men for the best interest of our common
country, and to gain the great object, the
restoration of the Union, so that we could
again enjoy all our rights and privileges as
citizens of the United States, and thereby
be relieved, in a great degree, from our pres
ent distressed condition. The Chairman ap
pointed E. 6. Brothers, B. P. Thane, D.
Greeson, Willis Scllars, Michael AVrenn,
David Whit, and Rev. G. W. Wclker a com
mittee to draft resolutions for the action of
the mectiug. The committee retired, and
during their absence. Col. James Wrenn, of
Randolph, being called for, addressed the
meeting for a short time, declaring he had
been always a Union man, rejoiced that the
rebellion had been put down, and was truly
glad the time bad come when Union men
could meet together without fear of moles
tation, and counsel for the perpetuation of
that Union. Many professed to be sound Union
men, though they had done everything in
their power to destroy the Union. He had no
confidence in them, and did not believe the
secessionists of the South and copperheads of
the North ever could or would restore the
Union ; and, in conclusion, said he was not a
Johnson man. The committee returned and
reported through their Chairman, Rev. G. W.
Wclker, the following preamble and resolu
Whereas, The condition of our country being
most unsatisfactory from want of harmony be

!. That when the General or State government

Which, upon motion, were tmanimously
adopteil ; after which Mr. Tourgee, formerly
ot" Ohio, now a citizen oi" this County, was
introduced to the us.seusbly, who said he
heartily endorsed the resolutions "and was
pleased to address North Carolinians ; that
once before, he had made a speech to North
Carolinians when they wove prisoners; had
been a prisoner himself ; that there was but
one road that was straight, which would lead
us back into the Union, and the Congress of
the United States had m arked out that road ;
that he would not assail President Johnson's
motives. He believed the President should
have convened Congress and let that body
have reconstructed, and wc would have been
back iuto the Union baforc. That he was
opposed to universal, and in iavor of im
partial suffrage, was willing any man should
vote who knew the worth of a ballot and
was loyal. AVas quite severe upon copper
heads, urged and encouraged .true Union
men to organize and be prepared to vote,
and sustain true Union men of the North,
who had done so much for the preservation
of the Union.
On motion of David "Whit, the proceedings
of this meeting were ordered to be signed
by the Chairman and Secretary, and the
North-Carolina Standard, Greensboro' Pi
triot, and all the loyal papers of the State
requested to publish them.
When on motion, the meeting adjourned.

a meeting of loyal Union men," held in
Xewbern on Friday evening last, pro
posing that a Convention be held iu this
City on Thursday, the 20th of this month
a rom miormation 111 our possession,
and from our knowledge of the feelings
and views of the Unionists of the State,
we have no doubt this call for a Con
vention will be promptly and enthusias
tically responded to.
Owing to the shortness of the time,
it cannot be expected that every part of
the State will be fully represented, nor
that meetings can be generally held
to appoint delegates. "VVe call, there
fore, on the unmistakably loyal Union
men 01 tne btate to come tip en masse
to Raleigh, to take counsel together on
the state of the country. Let the East,
the Centre, the North, the Sonth, and
West be here in as full force as practica
ble. Let every Union man who may
hear of the proposed Convention, spread
the information among his neighbors ;
and let us have a gathering of the true
friends of the government which will
be felt for good in the great work of
restoration. X,et every Union man tcio
can spare the time and the means, come
to the Convention. Do not wait for
meetings to request you to come, friends
but come of your own accord. The
country is in great peril. The Union
must be restored, but it can be restored
only by "unmistakably loyal men."
Every material and moral interest is
suriering from the condition in wliich
we are now placed. The only remedy is
the T7n ion ! the Union ! and the soon
er it is restored the better it will be for
We make the following extract from a
letter from a distinguished AYestem
friend, just received :
" The new Constitution has been rejected.
Therefore, so tar as our part of the State is
concerned, the question will be the white

We are waiting to hear from the Centre and

ing are excellent, and though brief, they
cover the whole ground. The proceed
ings referred to are as follows :
The October Election.
A large and enthusiastic meeting of citizens
was held last evening, at Firemen's Hall, to
consider the propriety of electing delegates
to a State Convention to convene at the city
of Raleigh. The meeting was organized by
the election of Mr. C. R. Thomas as Chair
man, and 3Ir. E. It. Stanly as Secretary. Mr.
Thomas stated the oliject of the meeting to
be the organization of the unmistakably ly
al men of the State. On motion the Chair
appointed Messrs. H. J. Tdenninger, R. F.
Lehman anil D. W. Wardrop, a Committee
to draft resolutions expressive of the views-of
the meeting. The assemblage was then ad
dressed by Messrs. E. W. Carpenter, IL F;
Lehaman and others, after wliich the Commit
tee on Resolutions reported tho following pre
amble and resolutions :
Wheremr It has been suggested by a por
tion of the people of North-Carolina, in pub
lic mectiug assembled, that in view of the
approaching election for Governor and lnemr
bers of the General Assembly, in October
next, a State Convention should be early bald
in the city of Raleigh ; and
Whereas, Organization is important to tlie
vnmUtahibltf loyal citizens of the State, and an
interchange of political views may prove use
ful in the present state of the country ; there
fore, Jiesolred, That we approve and recommend
the holding of a State Convention on the 20th
day of September next in the city of Raleigh ;
that the Chairman of this meeting appoint
twenty delegates, and that the people of oth
er counties of the State are requested to as
semble and appoint also other delegates to
meet in said proposed Convention.
ItemTicd, That the delegates who would
attend the said- proposed Convention, should
be citizens who are now unmistakably loyal
to the National Government men who sin
ccrely aud honestly desire the restoration of
the Government of the State of North-Carolina
in harmony with that of the Natioual
Government who expect hereafter to- live
and die reconciled and re-united American
citizenSy under the Constitution of the Uni
ted States as it is, or as it may be amended
in the manner prescribed therein ; who know
and revere but one flag the flag of the Un
ion, and who expect but one destiny that
of the whole American people, men with na
tional minds and national hearts, who, after
the manner of Washington. ''Keep steadily
in view the consolidation of our Union, as the
greatest interest of every true American,, and
regard the continuance of the Union- as- a
primary object of patriotic desire."'
The reading of these resolutions was fre
quently interrupted by applause. The reso
lutions were unanimously adopted, after
which the meeting adjourned. Rewb&rn
The great object of those politicians who
are now controlling the South, seems to be
to keep out of the- Union. Every thought
ful, sensible citizen wants to get back. Wc
shall have no capital for business,. no em
igration, no repose for society, no prosperi
ty until the State is placed where she- was in
1860. Every one feels and knows this. to be
so. But we can not hope to be restored
with these politicians in the lead. It has
been eight months since Gov. Worth was b
augurated, and we seem to be further feonv
the great object in view, to wit, restoration,
than we were then.
For our part, we- were for the straightest
road to-peace during the rebellion, and" we
are now for the straightest road right bach to
the UnioiK That is our platform.-
Something for Seaton and Brother PCj
" The Now York 'World gives the following
incident, which occurred on one of the streets
of Hew Tork during the late reception of
the President in that City :
. "An American citizen of African descent
ran up to the President as the carriage was
passing Fulton street,, with a bouquet in
hand, which he held toward I.Ir. Johnson
with one. hand while he held his hat in thP
other. - ..The President took the flowers and
shook' smiling Sambo by the hand with -!
hearty grip, the crowds cheering with 11
their might while the interesting incident
This thing will kill Seaton and Brother
Pell, so-called. Just think of it ! the Prc-si
dent stopping in the midst of that brilliant
and mighty throng, to receive a bouquet
from an African, and crowning the scene by
shaking " smijing Sambo by the hand
The nerves of our " reconstructed" brethren
will be greatly shocked as this news r0es
abroad through the country. They will have
terrible visions of " negro equality."
The Philadelphia Convention declare,!
that the national debt is sacred, and ou.d.t
to be paid, and that the rebel debt is treason
able, and ought jiot to be paid. It thanked
the soldiers and sailers for suppressing the
rebellion, and declared that their families.
Hacks included, ought to be cared for l.y the
government. It declared the colored man
entitled to equal rights before the law with
the white man. It denounced the Confed
erate movement as an insurrection or rebell
ion. It declared that the States shcukl be
admitted to Congress only in the persons of
"loyal" representatives that is, persons who
can take the test oath. Now, we call these
pretty good " radical" doctrines. The Sen
tinel, of this City, says it warmly approves
them, and j-:-t it continues to abuse the
" radicals." Will that paper attempt an ex
planation of t'uis glaring inconsistency ?
The "radicals," as they are calfcd, arc the-
very people who suppressed the rebellion.
They embrace three-fourths of tha votes, the
wealth, the bone and sinew, and the intelli
gence of tlie North. The SoHth could not
whip them, though she fought well and had
a long and fair triaL It is useless, it is uen-
rile, it is dangerous to abuse them. What

There is no material difference between the
plan of the President and the planoCCongress.
The President is himself the author of every
separate and particular principle in the Con
