BPIIJ.IT Of TUB MORNING PRKBtS.
That venerable matron, the Enquirer,
made her appearance this morning in a
new dress—one of the very latent fashion,
too—a bonnet exactly like that worn by
the more youthful Dispatch. We dislike
to sea old ladies dress like young girls.
Fashion is well enough for youth ; but our
grandmothers look much better in the
plain costume of half a century ago, than
in tho short skirt, panier, and jockey hat
and feather of the girl of the period. At
the age of sixty-four, the Enquirer should
have beeu prepared to lay aside such
vanities and frivolities, and ought to have
rejected all modern innovations and
changes. It should have stuck to its old
head, at least so long as it remains steadfast
in its old ideas. There should be some
regard paid to the eternal fitness of
things ; and so young a head upon so old
a body, is in violation of the rules of art,
and reverses the order of nature, which
puts old heads upon young bodies. The
Enquirer should have held on to its old
head. We do not believe in Buch changes.
The mostjsuccesbful papers we have in this
world never permit any chaugo in their
stylo. They continue to wear tho same
dress from their birth to their death. The
people would fail to recognize thorn, or
would in all probability turn away from
them in disgust wero they to change in the
least particular. They have grown up
with their subscribers and admirers frooi
youth, and their features aro familiar and
have fixed themselves iv the affectiuns of
their friends. To change these features, is
to run a great risk. It were better to
'chonge tho name, aud come out as a now
paper, with new features and new ideas.
Rut the Enquirer, of course, had a right
to adopt any stylo it saw fit, —and it cer
tainly looks much handsomer than in the
old-fashioned head gear. Wo trust that
the uew suit is an evidence of our ueigh
bor's finaucial success.
Rut with its change of dress, we do not
discover any change in the political char
acter of our contemporary. That is as
anciont and Rourboniih as ever. It is I
joined to its idols, ar.d in this case, at least, I
Sheridan Knowles' oft quoted idea, that
change make 3 change, has not beeu real
ized. The snake may change its skin, but
not its nature. Train up a child in tho '
devious ways of democracy and when he
is old he will not depart from them, —no '
matter how often he may change his coat. '
Wo had feared that the Enquirer, like '
the old National Intelligencer, had outlived '
its usefulness and "fallen into the sere, the <
yellow leaf," and that its lagging longer '
upon the stage was stiperfluotis; but its '
youthful appearance this morning re
assures us, aud if it would only take up a j
few new and progressive ideas in keeping 1
with tho age, and becomo a "young ■
Enquirer" in the spirit as well as in the I
letter, we would sincerely wish it a long I
and prosperous life. j
There is nothing rema'kable in the edi
torial columns of cur newly rigged con- '
temporary—nothing new there. It h:\s a r
good deal of complaint to make against [
the present State government,—which was *
of its own choosing. It fays this govern- r
ment was not organized for the purpose of '
representing tho majority of the people,— '
which means, we suppose, that tho majori- I
ty of the white people accepted Walker '
because they could not do any better at <■
the time, —and not because they preferred !
him, or thought his election the best thing
lor the State. It says: j
A government organized on a principle of
yielding power to a minority is always a
dangerous experiment, and we have many
reasons to congratulate ourselves that so many \
of the dangers of such a government have been ,
avoided in the practical operations of the „
present Virginian system. i
m ¥.' ■ m ■ m ••■ ■•' |
If the Legislature shall tako etiicient meas- »
ores to restore power to a majority of the peo- j
pie, and postpone all action, that can be ',
delayed, until the people can actually rule the s
State government, tbey will do the most that
can be hoped from them. Of all the powers i
that can rule in any country, the rule of a '
minority of the people is most to be dreaded.—
That we have escaped so many of the ills {
which the Black Crook arrangements might ,
have imposed is a subject for much congratu- i
iation. f
All of which amounts to just this : J
"Gentlemen, you have done well in refus- i
ing or failing to give vigot to the liberal J
provisions of the constitution, in disre- t
garding that instrument, and treating with ]
contempt the rights of the people. You .
have carrtad out successfully the game of !
sham, which we inaugurated in the choice j
of Walker as our candidate for Governor. -
You have triumphantly cheated the Arneri- j
can nation, and you deserve praise—not t
so much for the things you have done, as j
for tbe things you have left undone." ,
Rut how long does the Enquirer think j
the people will put up with such child's '
play ? The world is moving, and the peo- i
pie of Virginia must movo with it. There c
can be no step backward ; and although t
tho "Rlack Crook" constitution may now ,
be a good subject for Democratic contempt
and ridicule, yet, if we call a convention
three years hence, we shall find tha people
prepared for still more liberal institutions
in Virginia. You might as well give it an
honest enforcement at once. This stub
born opposition to it will do no good ; and ]
those who have permitted il to sleep, will
soon be sent to their political graves. The
people have the ballot, and will maintain i
their rights. l
The Dispatch continues to discuss the
necessity of a chaugein our modes of in
dustry and domestic economy in Virginia
and the riouth, which it says has been
rendered necessary by the great change io
our social relations After setting forth t
the fact that iv the days of slavery the <
slaves and their families were entirely de- ,
pendent upon their masters, and had no
personal responsibility, as is now the case,
when each is left to take care of himself <
and those dependent upon his labor and
exertions, it says:
The attempt by the farmers (as we showed
■Saturday) to continue the old system of culti
vation—the expensive system—by maintaining
negro famitiea in cottages upon their farms,
and superintending their now paid industry in
the old way, has signally failed. Because it is
not consistent with the individual independence
arid individual responsibility which entire
freedom establishes. The family must take
care of itself. Its obligation to do so accom
panies its freedom to do so. This obligation
cannot be removed, and tbe farmer who under
takes to remove it by taking upon his shoulders '
the burthen of negro families under the ex
pectation that he will be compensated by the
results of their industry, will be disappointed.
With the new dispensation there must be that
individual responsibility which requires every
family to do the same. The government to
give protection anil security to all.
It is the most difficult thing in the world
to make either the former slave or the ,
former owner comprehend tho changed re
lations they bear to one another and to so
ciety ; aud wo doubt, as long as the old
Blaves and old masters live aud remember,
and form the bßlk of our laboring and
employing population, if we can make
teachings of their early life. We must
wait patiently ULtil the rising generation,
which know nothins about slavery, ta
Ti.e;i tha white man will bo longer thin
of treating the black fta lie was wont
use him when ho was a chattel j wbi
the black man will ba independent, ant
J feel tho responsibility of his position. T
children of both races that are now gro
ing up will have no dark past of slave
at their back, and wo will have to w
patiently for them to take our plac
before the ntw dispensation can be fu
inaugurated. Old prejudices, old idt
old habits, old feelings of mutual <
peudence, and that old lack of indepe
dence, will prevail uutil tho generati
which knew nothing of slavery, com
actively upon the stage of Ufa fill t
positions vacated by old master aud o
The Dispatch goes on to show that it
the policy of our farmers to select a sma
farm from tho best of their land, and th
after gelling the rest, to enable them
pay their debts and stock aud enrich wha
land they retain, they must put their ow
hands to the plough, or, at least, no mor
hired hands than can be employed wit
profit—and closes as follows:
Then it would be well for society to afford
every facility for the rapid consummation of
the social revolution which cannot be averted—
nay, which now ia indispensable to the restora
tion of contentment and thrift in the land.
Every tub must stand upon its own bottom.
Every man must take care of himself. Every
tiller of the soil must now improve bis land,
and live wisely and economically. There is
no way now outside of well-regulated and
sagacious industry to increase wealth and
establish pecuniary independence. Concen
trate industry — wisely employ it—institute
rigid economy—permit no idle hands to linger
I about the field—away with the drones—and a
few years will show us a bloomiDg and happy
The Disjiatch has also an article on the
subject of a hotol to replace the losg of the
Spotswood. It says that for "Main street
and the active busiucss part of Richmond,
a new hotel should now be built," for it
believes "wo shall need that and more
when our Western connections are com
pleted." By all means let a palatial bote
rise on the ruins of the Spotswood, and le
us call it the Spotswood. No place so
proper, andco name so popular.
The Whig defends Judge Cochran, o
Augusta, from the recent newspaper as
saults that have been mado upon him, —
growing out of his alleged aspirations for
the Senatorial robes which now grace the
form of the Hod. J. W. Johnston. The
Whig says all this bobbery has been kicked
up merely because Judge Cochran was a
friend of consolidation, —and as he is a
very popular and influential man, his ene
mies have undertaken to kill him off, by
misrepresenting him as courting favor with
the Republican minority, in hopes of se
curing his election to the Senate. Well,
Cght it out. Our policy, like that of Eng
land, is "non-intervention."
The Whig again takes up the vexed mat
ter of straightening, shortening, and re
pairing our highways and byways ; but we
fear they have been growing crooked so
long, and the people have become so used
to their tortuous windings, that it will be
found very difficult to make them straight.
The trouble appears to be in the obsti
nacy of the farmers, who will not permit
roads to be cut through their broad do
mains, but insist that they shall mark tl.e
dividing line between themselves and
neighbors. When we adopt tho small
farm system, we shall get out of this dif
ficulty. There are other things in the
Whig wo would like to notice, but we have
already gouo beyond the limits of this
columu.

ALONE IN A MOUNTAIN GORGE.
QNCJGLY KNBOONCJW AMID TIIK WILDS OF
\0 one of tha Middle States, liv«d Madame Dela*
champs, mauy yeaiH ago, with no known protn t r,
save a faithful dog that ever stood beside her to de
fend in time of need. Her ttniali, m«ss-covered
cabin, wrapped with the wild roßo and honeysuck'e
appeared hid away by a clunter of undergrowth,
and closely environed on the north and east by a
deep, craggy ravine that ted away back lo the moun
tain torge.
t
Hore, sniffling the ambient ffr, wafted from na
ture's green sward clinging to the mountain wide,
bathing her brow in early morn's gentle dewdrop,
■he lived solitary and alone for many long years
The catamount's unearthly midnight yell, and tho
wolf's doleful howl, frequently aroustd her from
pleasant midnight slumbers.
Now and then she would ooierge from her un
known home and mingle with thu inhabitants
around about for one or two months at a time. She
was eccentric in her acta, and all viewed her as a
living curiosity.
While from homo, she apparently had but one ob
ject, aud that was tbe relief of her afflicted Bex,
Under a belt on her left side, could be seea an old
fashioned dirk of considerable siEe, carried for he<
own protection, while strapped across her shoulder
was susponded a curious sack made from the
SKINS OF RABBITS AND RACCOONS
arranged in alternate stripes. This tag contained
some old parchment, curious relief, a few light gar
ments, and a smaller sack containing a coa&ai pow- \
i-*:n. made from certain roots known only to herself,
the secret of which she clung to as with the tenacity ,
of death. She sallied forth from In r wild mountain j
home, to act the Good Samaritan, with this unknown
vegetable powder, which Bhe claimed possessed a
wonderful power ovor all diseases incident to th- 1 ;
female flex. She tunned it "womb physic," with
which she proposed to euro all afflictions and '<'.■
raugfrnenta of that organ, and kindred complaints,
ran of oharos. With such s ngutar magic did she
relieve all who applied, that within a low years her
name and tome became known far tind wide, and hun
dreds of Buffering females applied Cat relief and re- i
turned to their homes healthy and kappy. M.tny
were anxious to know her gent aecre*., and large
sums «f money were offered if sbo would divulge it ;
but tho stubbornly refused.
During her solitary life, fthfl became intimate with
only one woman, a noted mid wifu some miles distant,
t« whom she promised to
DITULOK IIKK S-ECKKT
before dying. In a few years, as tho sombre *hudos
of night began to close around her tottering frame,
she imparted this great Eecret to this friend. j
She too gained quite a imputation for relieving the
suffering of her Bex, aud strange as it may appear,
she warcely ever failed to cure those old chronic ft- j
male complaints that had resisted all ordinary mode*
of treatment. Many years ago, the writer of Ibis,
while engaged in the practice of medicine, by a little j
strategy, succeeded in procming the secret of this
wonderful Vegetable Regulator, which had never
been known to the Medical Profession. i
He gave It a fair and impartial trial in tLe treat- I
ment of various forms and stages of female com- [
plaints with Bitch decided satisfaction, that in 1860 ha I
called public attention to its virtues in
"QROS3' MEDICO CHIRURQICAL RKVIKW."
Combined with other known vegetable Tonics,
having great power over the uteri so organs; with
Black Root to act upon the Liver and Bowels, and
Soluble Citrate of Iron to correct the blood, he has
formed a wonderful combination for the cure of a! 1
Female Complaints, considering it the only feinalo
i The Medical Profession at large, have long felt tb(
I need of Just such a medicine, consequently it is acl
| «trange that they so eagerly prescribe aud recom
| mend the§e Bitters to their female patients.
If you could see tho pile of smiling approvals and
I encouiiuLUr} fr<m physicians and tho public who have
cure J thtir wives, their danghterH and their fr: jnd l ",
by tbo use of these Bitters, no sickly female would
hesitate to use them. This Female Rpgu'ator is
adapted for old, young, married or single females,
who are affected with acnte or chronic forms of
Uterine derangements. They cure painful, sup
pressed, scanty, profuse or irregular Menstruation,
Chlorosis or Greon Sickness, Fiuor Albus or Whiten,
Hysterics, Filliug of the Womb, Ulceration and Ir
ritability of tho Womb, pain in the side, back or
loins, s'ck Headache, palpitation or fluttering «f the
Heart, hurried Breathing, swimming of the Head,
cold Feet and Hands, lose of Appetite, Indigestion,
torpid Liver, Molaucholly, Nervousness, Wakeful
ness, Barrenness, physical Prostration, etc., etc.
Many of these are relieved by tho me of only one
THE LIVER AND STOMACH
Are thoroughly aroused and restored toa healthy ac
ti'tii, by the use ot these Bitters. Its pecnliaa Iron
and Vegetable combination, places it far ahead of
any similar preparation before the public.
m
Females, after confinement and convalescents from
I any debilitating complaint, who remain weak and
I feeble, with little or no appetite, are at once aroused
and strengthened by their use. As a Family Tonic
for men, Women and children, it has no equal. One
j tablespoonfui contains more medical properties, than
I one bottle-of any of the common and pleasant "di-
I lute alcohol" bitters, to be found all over tbe country,
j When the manufacturers of the common beverages
of the day say tbey cure all diseases, they Veil know
I they are "pulling the wool" over your eyes, and
{ laugh at your stupidity fa being so easily humbugged 1
j whenever the article smacks of wh*shy. If yo« 1
I really desire a valuable Iron and Vegetable Ton<c
I for yourself and family, one bo*.tie of E. F. B. will
I last longer aud do more good than one t'oeen of the
j ordinary "grog shop ' bitters, as one tableepoonful In
water, Is sufiUiont for a whole family. As
A i KMALK REGULATOR,
I It has no equal oa this continent, acting powerfully
I and promptly iv all casee, where no organic lesion
I exists. It is just the medicine for young girls, who
I have some difficulty in retaining tbe bloom on the
cheeks, and who do not feel exactly right. For tbe
mother at the "change of life," it soothes and quiets
uutil the critical period is passed, as sweetly as if
enjoying the brightest beams of opal ray, flitting
through tue air of oriental climes. The medicine is
■old at the low price of $1 50 per Bottle, or six for

KOBKOO CURBS SCROFULA IN ITS WORST
mi
From A. W. Mills, a prominent and well-known mer
chant of Norfolk, Va.
No. 11 Main Street, Norfolk, Va., Sept. 16,1889.
DR. J.%. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: Yonr Koskoo
bss worked wonders in my family. My daughter ha*
been a sufferer from Scrofula since childhood. She
lost tbirty-one pieces of hone from her ankle, several
from her arm, besides having ulcers in several parts
of the body. Whilst In this condition she commenced
taking your Koskoo—it acted like a charm on her;
under its use the ulcers gradually healed,and her
general health greatly improved. It certainly saved
her much suffering, and perhaps her life. I regard
Koskoo a specific for all screfulous affections. Yonr
Koskso also cured my wife of dyspepsia, from which
she suffered greatly. She is now in better health
limn she has been in five years.
With the highest regftrd,
I am gratefully yours, Ac,
A. W. MILLS,
Koskoo is endorsed by the best physicians every
where. Read the following from Dr. Tillery, a suc
cessful practitioner of many yours standing in the
Old North State:
Rocky Mount, Edgscotnbe Co., 1 ~
September 10,186». J
DR. J. J. LAWRKNCB—Doar Sir: I have usee,
your Concentrated Fluid Extract of Koskoo In my
practice with the happiest results. I find It to be
a powerful Liver Invigorator, Blood Purifier, and
Nervous Tonic. In all diseases of the Liver, Srcofu
lous, Syphilitic, and Nervous Affections, it is a remedy
of immense value ; in fact, in almost every variety
of Chronic Disease is use its indicated. Hopicg you
may meet with the success which you deserve as a
manufacturer of reliable medicines, I am, sir, witl
much respect,
Yeur obedient servant,
B. 0. TILLERY, M. D.
KOSKOO CURBS CHRONIC RHEUMATISM.
Norfolk, Va., Sept. T, 18(19.
DR. J. J. LAWRENCE— Dear Sir: My son has re
ceived so much benefit from your wonderful Koskoo
that I cannot refrain from expressing my gratitude.
I had tried almost everything without benefit. I be
lieve, in all sincerity, that your Koskoo is au infalli
ble remedy for tho disease from which he has suffered,
and, so far as I can learn, has never failed. If you
only knew the immense amonnt of suffering he has
undergone, then you could conceive the value of aucl
a remedy as Koskoo—that surely cures. The great
amount of good it is now doing among us is inesti
mable.
WHh much gratitude,
I am, respectfully yours, Ac,
Mrs. M. 1. A. NELSON.
Read tbe following from Mr. Womble, a prominent
Hardware Merchant of this city:
Ne. IS, Market Square, Norfolk, Va., 1
October 13,1889. J
DR. LAWRENCB—Dear Sir: To tbe large num
ber of testimonials which you offer to the great effi
cacy of yonr Koskoo, I take pleasure In adding my
own. I suffered greatly with Nervous Debility.
Headache, Loss of Appetite, Ac. Two bottles of Kos
koo restored me to health.
Yonrs truly,
J. 0. WOMBLJJ.
from Rot. W. H. Christian, Pastor Dinwiddie
Street Methodist Church.
Portsmouth, Va., October 26,1869.
This Is to certify that I know Dr. Lawrence well.
He is a gentleman of cultivation, and worthy of the
fullest confidence. IhavoHseil his Koskoo with ad
vantage to myself, and have adopted Its nso in my
family in cases of nervous debility and depression.
W. H. CHRISTIAN.
From Dr. Lloyd, a Physician of large practice.
Great Bridge, Va., October 8,1869.
J. J. LAWRENCE, M. D.—Dear Sir: I ohgßrfnlly
endorse your Koskoo as being a most valuable prepa
ration. Upon examination of the formula, I llnd
each ingredient highly extolled by our best and most
progressive clinical Investigators. I have tested its
effects in my own practice, and have no hesitation In
recommending it. In my opinion, it is the bent com
pound of lie class ever put before tbe public—ex
ceeding by far all the various compounds of sarsapa
rilla, Ac, ever invented. It is a decided Nerve Tonic
and Invigorator of toe animal forces, aiding digos
tion aud assimilation, and thereby producing healthy
blood, which should be the basis of irohtiuent in ail
ohronio dtseaees. Hoping you will reap the reward
you deserve from the public as a benefactor,
I am sir, yours trnly,
CHARLES LLOYD, M.D.
After reading the above high recommendations, in
valida cannot reasonably hesitate to give the KOS
KOO a trial.

The very best arrangement ever introduced for
raising water from wells or cisterns. Of the seven

have a pmnp, a sweep or old-fashioned windlass we
will take back the WELL FIXTURE and refund the

DOTY'S CLOTHES WASHER.
The Peculiarities of this Machine : Ist, It is small
it occupies but little more room than a common
wash-tub. 2d. It la easily worked; a feeblo womun
may sit down and work it; a little girl can stand
and operate the washer. 3d. It secures ail the well
known benefits of using suds boiling hot. The hand
need not touch the water, either iv washinr or
wringing, with the Unlvcisal Clothes Wringer at
tached; hence it cleanses ordinary linen in a few
moments, at a single ip»:atian, and tho worst pans
of collars and wristban.is so effectually, that reldom
any, and never but little, rubbing is necesrary
There is no exaggeration in this statement, if the
machine is used according to directions
