Tnere are sitting-rooms here f ir both officer invalids and soldiers. There ere two wards of 130 by twenty-seven eaci, constructed after tbe Toilet system, re cently adopted by tbe French War Depart ment for hospitals. The one story is twenty four feet higb and egg-shaped, with interme diate dormer windows. These wards will accommodate thirty-two patient each, and include every comfort and many luxuries. The system of ventilation above and below ia novel and complete, and there ia a veranda on one side and both end which connect with all the buildings The healing it by double-crated stoves in each ward.

Witness knew Hayward waa in the employ of Ibe firm at tbe time he made the plans.

Richmond correspondence of tbe New York Herald: The Democrats bold a State Con vention at Lynchburg on the 25 h of this month. 1 his will be a convention extraor dinary. The call fer it was a very brief one, ana Bigniuea noining except mat 11 oojeci was to thoroughly reorganize tbe ptrtv in lie State. There are no State officers to be elected next fall, consequently the Conven tion will have no candidates to nominate. An election, however, will be held for mem ber ot the tjeneral Assembly, consisting of one-half of the Senate and the whole of the House of Delegate. The Legislature, which meets io December following the election in November, in biennial seseion, will have no United States Senator to elect. Mabone's term does not expire nalil 1887, and Biddle bergei's not until 1889. Tbe only important matter to come before it will be tbe redis tricting of the State for members of Congress under the new apportionment bill. A bill for this purpose, introduced bv the Kad- jnsters, waa defeated in the last Legislature by th bolting of four Keadjuster Senators to the Democrats, which produced a dead lock tbat the K-adjustera found it impossible to break. So, then, lhe work of tbe July C .invention will be mainly to lay the'pipes so as to carry the Legislature io the fall, re distiict the Slate and thspe the course for the Presidential race io 1884. The first act ia the programme should be the adoption of a platform embodying sound, living issues and the principles ihe Democracy of the bnate honestly means to carry out. RESPONSIBILITY AND FOTCRE HONORS. The thing, bowever.tbat most interest the politicians wilt be the selection of a new State Committee. For the chairmanship of this committee there will be numerous as pirants. A powerful responsibility will be placed on tb ) chairman, involving the future of tbe D.mocracy as party organ zation in Virginia. A a result ot success tbe sweet morsel of a United Slatea Senatorship or a Governorship will fall to the lol of the chair man in laso. Already tbe name of Con gressman John 8. Barbour is mentioned aa tbe most prominent in the list of candidates. B.irbour s district give the beavitst Demo cratic majority in Ibe State, where to aecure tne nomination la to secure tbeeleclioo. xle has b.'.;!i eucces fol in doing thia twice, and aa be n a railroad preMdvnt and a shrewd business man he may possibly secure tbe CuValed priz4 of lhe chairmanship. But mere are other who want it. Among the ina" I bear tbe name of Congressmen Q. C Cibel and .handolph tucker. THE PLATFORM THE DEBT. It is now an undoubted fact tvat th Democrat, who si stubbornly fought th Keadiuaters 00 the debt imue, will in July heartily indorse tbe settlement made by the latter partv. Ibis determination ha al ready caua-d a heavy advance in Ihe Rid dleberver bond-, and will, no doubt, advance mem etui-nigher alter ibe Convention naa acted. If tbe move laaucxtsful ia assuring the white R-adjut-tera tbat the D.mocrate do not mean to disturb tbe debt settlement, and thereby winning them back into the Demo cralij ranks, it will accomplish all that wa intended. Tbe RiadjusUr, however, are very chary on this ecote, and they will think twice before they again IruBt the Bourbon with tbe arrangement ol lhe Stale finances Other planka in the Convention platform are mailer ol mere siiecnlatioo. "It," said a Democrat, "ihe Cjnvention will only have the common sense to give us a thoroughly .Democratic set of principles and act equareiy up to ihem, instead of any- tmnz to neat Juanone, we have tbe grandest opportunity to carry tbe State, and to hold 11, we ever naa since tne war." "What would vou euggat in the wav of a platform?" wa asked. Well, I can hardly formulate a nartv platform in a iiffv. but I would recommend such leading principles aa economy in the administration of Ihe government, tne eaual civii and political rights of ail men, a tariff tor revenue in coairaaietinctlon 10 a Pro tective tariff, the increase and improvement of the public schools, opposition 10 all sort of monopolies, supervision of railroad tariffs ana trsmc by a biate commission to prevent extortion, recogniz ng tbe settlement of the S:ale debt, and pledging tbe party to be bound by tbat settlement, end some otber features of State necetsity and policy." What would vou propose iu a, national way?" "Tbat 1 am not prepared to aiy. I would. however, wish, in tbe brat piece, to see the repeal of all urconslitutiooal war meaaurea, the regulation ot interstate commerce, the breaking np of the the lebgraph monopoly, the reduction, 11 not tbe abolition. ol the Den sion system, and I would oppose all grains of public lands to railroads or other corpora lions. Theee are matters which rt quire very careiui oxsiuerauor.." 'Have you any hop tbat such a nlaiform win o aaoptea at A,ynchbur? ' ' Candidly, 1 nave no'; but if tome such measures ere- cot adopted Democrats will not go to the polls next November. All the talk about redeeming Ibe State from Mahone boasism is stieer nocseose ualesa ws have a distinci and well-frsmed announcement of our principles woicb tbepeoplecao read and understand. Wnat Wrf want is ibe overthrow of the Republican party princiolea in Vir ginia, and with tbem Mtbone goea under, but not until then. .Perhaps the Democracy will require one more defeat before they find una out." These expression came from a leading Democrat, who a'ao admitted that tbe party was saaiy in n?ea 01 ivsuer, ana he strongly hoped that toe Convention would be lnckv enouga to select toe proper man to manage 11 party an airs. A NOVEL ISSUE. An effort ia now being made to make the "nigger" Ibe leading lsxne in the coming canvas lor members ot tne ueneral Aasem. bly. It was thought that this political bone of contention, like it ant 1 pod', the bloody shirt, bad been burn d beyond hope of resur recuon; out its revival in a limited wsy teems 10 be determined npon. The clearly cut, marked and distinct color line it not what is aimed at. The citizen of African extraction 1 to be accotded all the right and privilege guaranteed him by the na tional and State constitutions and by the statute made and provided, with one single 1 : : :c . x t a ana Terr 1 u-iui ucitti caorinoD. xie SQay ne a magistral?, juage or a juror, ao ainer man or a 1-gUlator, a governor or a United Slates Senator, but the line must be drawn somewhere, and certain Democratic organs have fixed it as sencol tiostee. Even here there is a slight modification made bis favor. He may be a trustee for negro school, but net f or white schools. As there are no board of trustees, however, constructed exclusively for negro or white schools, tbi amount to very little. He most neceeaarily be a trustee of both, and herein consists bi obnoxioot ncas. The Democratic organ referred to "won't have if Tbe new or partial nesro issue had it origin here in Richmond, where nearly ba.f of ibr public schools are ceuro schools. On a biard of nine school trustee the Re ad juster Sate Board cf Education, consisting k.1 ibe Governor, Attorney. General and Su perintendent of Public Instruction, had the temerity to appoint two negroes. This wa at once pronounced aa indignity to which no while Virzinisa could be expected tamely U submit. It was the first time in her histoisr that cewToea had been placed 02 the Bctoai Board of tb city of Richmond, and then by a Re adjuster administration. NToes bad, been Jrostees on various school boards ia the Slate, notably in tb city of Petersburg, during former Democratic administration. Tbey bad quietly served their terms, were ia acme cases re-elected or appointed by ltm craiic authorities but that was all right. What wa good Democratic policy under Gov. Kemper or Gov. Holiday, ia a Read juater infamy under Gov. Cameron. .O this tbe organs drew the modified color line of no negroes as school trustee. WHAT THE BTZOBO TRUSTEES SAT. ' The two colored trustees on the Board state tbey hay no intention of meddling with the management ef white school any more than any former colored trustee did nnder Democratic administration. There are seven white men on the City Board wbo are fully capable of attending to tbem. The colored trustees say they aimply aak for the appointment of colored teachers tor colored schools, so far a tbey may be found quali fied. Thia announcement of the proposed line of their action rather aggravated than appeased th wrath of tbe Democratic or gans, which threatened dire vengeance on the colored schools. The City Council was called upon to appropriate all school taxes paid by white lor the support of white schools and lhe taxes paid by negroes fer tbe negro schools. If this wa not successful then the constitution and laws are to be changed so a to give the negroes exclusive control of tbeir own' schools, and let Ce white manage theirs as suits themselves. How either of the latter expedienta was to be accomplished ia not clearly set forth. It would require several years to elect a con vention to amend tbe constitution, and then it might possibly not be the right sort of a convention for the Democrat when the fu ture of the public schools is called into iueslion. It would also require a strong temocratic Legislature to change any school laws. But tbe war of words waxes hot be tween the Democratic and Keadjuster organs abusive epithet being liberally dealt in and the action of Gov. Cameron and his beard being denounced in tbe most unrestricted and unmeasured term by the Democrats. THE OUTLOOK. Every indication goes to ebow. that the fall campaign will be hot. National a well aa local issue will enter largely into it. Tbe beat speakers, organizer and worker on both ides will be called into active service. There will be fully 100,000 and upward more voter wbo have been qualified by tbe repeal of tbe poll tax prerequisite to be brought to the poll. Who will capture this new Voie, or which party will succeed in bringing it out? Tbe whole vote in the State is nowec- timated at 350,000 in round number, about 210,000 of which ia white and 140,000 col ored. If the Democratic organ succeed in forcing tbe negro school trustee issue aa a party measure, whatever effect it may have on the white voters, it will certainly bring every negro to the polls in solid array against tbat party. Ibe so-called straight-'; out Republicans will even be compelled to vote against the Democrats on thia issue If, on tbe other hand, tbe tariff becomes an issue, and it Is most likely it will, tne lull whit agricultural vote of the rnral districts may be cast solidly against Mahone and pro lection. This seems to be the strongest card the Democrats can play. U ia not at all clear, as generally supposed now, that Vir ginia lavors protection, and if the issue is equareiy made it ia more than probable that a heavy maiorily would be polled against tbat Republican measure. With such isiues a theee. and with such a canvasa aa will in evitably take place, the political altitude of Virginia on the presidential race in laoi will be clearly and fully determined Novem ber nex.

Chaaahorel la a Sflai Cataatlliew. New York, July 13. In 1882 Margaret Gilmao, eighty-five years old, placed $2300 in tbe band ol Henry McArdle, instructing bim to pay the funeral expenses of herself and husband, then ninety year old, when tbey ahould die, to erect a monument over their graves and expend the remainder of Ihe money in baviofc-mass aaid ibr tbe re- pose of tbeir amis, obe died eight days later, and ber husband abiul two momhe afterward, filth died intestate. Michael Gilman, aa next of kin, demanded McArdle to accouot and pay over to bim the money received fro n Mr. Gilman. Judge Freed man, in the Superior Court, decided tbe trust was invalid, and that such money as re mained should be paid Mr. Gilman. Con siderable comment ha been excited by tbe decision. To-day, in rendering a decision upon the motion for settlements, find ings and the award of coats, Judge Freedman referred to bis decision, saying if Mr. Gil man had bequeathed ber money to her ex ecutor for the purpose of having masse aid, he would have upheld the will; but no title passed with the deposit of money in tbe hands of the sgeol, and the administra tor waa as much entitled to revoke tbe in structions given the agent as Mrs. Gilman hersslf would have been bad she lived and chosen to revoke them. Tbe character of in structions, the judge said, is immaterial, and if tbey bad been tbat McCardle should every 4th of July pay a man to hoist the Ameri can flag over the house iu which she died be would have rendered precisely the same decision.
