THK CONVENTION AT RICHMOND.
The State Convention of the Republican
party of Virginia will meet in Richmond to
morrow (August 1st) pursuant to a call,
signed by lour menbtr^o! tbe executive com
mittee of the Republican pnrty of V irginta. and
by Jas. H. Clemerts. Chairman of the State
lientTal Committee; Gov. F. H. Pierpont, John
M Botts, L. H. Chandler, and others. They
avow themselves unconditional Union m?n,
and members of tbe great Repnblican party of
the United States, and call Upon all others of
like condition, as common sufferers, not to
throw away this golden opportunity to rescue
themselves, their children, and the State from
the hands of those who brought nothing but
ruin, desolation, want, and wretchedness
upon our land, but to meet in council, for the
purpose of extending and perfecting the or
ganization of the Republican party, com
menced by tlio Convention assembled
In Richmond on lhe 17th of April last.
The very general interest manifested will
doubtless ensure a very fnll attendance of
delegates irom all parts of the State. A com
munication to the New York Tribune notices
tbe fact tnat some uneasiness is felt in tbe
State because of the apprehension that tbe
convention will be made the scene of wrang.
ling and contention between tbe colored Re.
publicans ?nd their leaders, ana the newly
converted white Republicans and their friends;
but it Is not likely that will be the caw, as there
is no organization to be formed, no platform
or principles to be adopted, and, in fact?
nothing to be doae but the enlargement of the
present executive committee of the State. The
convention may meet and adjourn tbe tame
day. The address and platlorm of the 17th of
April convention will be rigidly adhered to
by the party organization that now exists, and
bo addition, amendment or diminution wai be
allowed by them.
A Waksiwo to Pakksts ?Parents .and
guardians of children should Dear in mind that
the little onesare born with very different con
btitotions and temperaments. While there are
some children wno be?r considerable flogging
with no 8<'0se of humiliation, and but little
physical pain, others of a delicate nervous or
gan nation shrink irom a cruel word as from a
ble w, and each stripe from a parent's band cuts
to (be soul, and inliicts wounds which may
never heal. So with other methods of punish
ment. Some chiidien being chut up in a dark
closet wilt coolly improve the opportunity to
have a treat, from the preserve or pickit? j:irs?
cr enjoy a good nap. while others may die
from iright. or are thrown into spasms.
The la:est ca-e of in judicious punishment is
that which occurred on Saturday evening last
,11 Hudson city, New Jersey, wheu a son of
Andrew Jackson was charged by his mother
with stealing twenty- Ave cents, and the father
on cbasti-ing him had only struck tbe second
blow when tbe boy sank down and almost
immediately expired. The boy was but nine
years old. The grief oi the lather is, of course,
intense at tbe fatal result of what he intended
for the boy's reformation, as he was a very in
dulgent parent Tbe trouble is that so few
people, with strong constitutions and phlegmat
ic temperaments, can realize and make proper
allowances for that shrinking self-conscious
ness and nervoii6 susceptibility, which afflicts
many adults and children, and is punishment
enough of itself without being aggravated by
the unthinking harshness of coarser, rougher,
and in some cases, more brutal natures.
The Governor ok Texas Kbmovbd by
Oukbal Sheridan.?Major General P. H.
Sheridan, in special orders Mo. 1U5, issued
irom bis headquarters in New Orleans yester

consistent Union man during the war.

the blood, corrects the action of the liver and kid

I1E UNION PACIFIC
RAILROAD COMPANY.
THEIR FIR?T MORTGAGE BONDS AS AN
INVESTMENT.
The rapid progress of the Union Pacific Railroad,
now building west from Omaha, Nebraska, au<I
forming, with its western connections, mi un
bioken line across the continent, attracts attention
Q^tlic value of the First Mortgage Bond- which thn
Company now offer to the public. The first iiuei
tion asked by prudent investors is. "Are the**
bonds eeenrer" Next. "Are they a profitalda
investment V" To reply in brief:
1st. The early completion of the whole great
line to the Pacific is as certain as any f 11 turn
business event < an be. The Government grant of
over twenty million acres of land and fifty million
dollars 111 its own bonds practically guarantees it.
One-fourth of the work is already done, and th>?
track continues to be laid at the rate of two miles
a day.
2d. The Union Pacific Ralroad honds are issued
upon what promises to be one of the most profit
able iines of railroad in the country. For many
years it mnst be the only line connecting the At
lantic and Pacific; and being without competition
it can maintain remunerative rates.
3d. Zonules of ibis road are finished, and fully
equipped with depots, locomotives, cars, Ac., and
two trains are dally running each way. The iiu
teriaUfor the remaining 141 miles to the eastern
base ?slthe Rocky Mountains are on hand,andis
under contract to be done in September.
4tli. The lft earnings of the sections already
finished an- .-ev^rnl times greater than the gold in
terest upon the First Mortgage Bonds upon sncli
sections, and if not another mile of the road wer.?
built, the part already completed would not only
pay interest and expenses, but be profitable to tho
Ct mpany.
5tli. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds can l*?
ssued only as the road progresses, and therefore
can never be in the market uuless they 1 present
a bona fide proper tj.
litli. Their amount is strictly limited by law to a
sum equal to u hat is granted by the United States
Government, and for which it takes a second li*n
as its security. This amount upon the tirst 511
miles west from Omaha is only ?16.0 * per mile.
7th. The fact that the United States Government
considers a second lien upon the road a go?*l in
vestment, and that some of the shrewdest railroad
builders ol the country have alread) paid in fiv*
million dollars upon the stock (which is to them a
third lien?nmy well inspire confidence in a first
lien.
8tli. Although it is not claimed that there ca:i b?
any better securities than Governments, there ar*
parties who consider a first mortgage upon snch a
property as this the very best security in the world,
and who sell their Governments tore invest iu these
bonds?thus securing a greater interest.
9th. As the Union Pacific Railroad bonds are of
fered for the present at 90 cents on the dollar and
accrued interest, they are the cheapest security in
tlie market, la-ing 15 per cent, less than U. S.
Stocks. ,
10th. At the current rate of premium ou gold
they pay
OVER NINE PER CENT. INTEREST.
The daily subscriptions are already large, ami
they will continue to be received in Washington by
the
FIRST NATIONAL BANK.
NATIONAL BANK OF THE REPUBLIC, au<?
RITTENH0USE. FOWLER A CO.,
and by BANKS AND BANKERS generally
throughout the United States, of whom maps and
descriptive pamphlets may be obtained. Tlie> will
also be sent by mail from the Company 's Office, No.
20Nassau street, New Vork. on application. Sub
scribers wkl select their own Agents in whom tbey
iiave confidence, who alone will be responsible to
lhem for the safe delivery of the bonds.
