As the limo approaches for making city
nominations, we desire to remind our Re
publican friends of tho importance of
bringing out their best men. Personally
we would be very glad to see the munici
pal election conducted without regard to
party lines. What is needed in Rich
mond is a return to the solid earth from
the waywardness, hostility aud Quixotic
madness of its political life. Its leading
politicians are wasting their energies on
sentimental politics. If all good citizens
could bo induced to unite, and selecting
men from all parties of tho highest intelli'
gence, business ability, patriotism and in
tegrity, the affairs of the city would be so
administered as to restore confidence at
homo and abroad. Chicago, with a Re
publican majority of 5,000, aud Milwau
kee with a Democratic majority of 500,
did so a few weeks ago, in both cases with
tbe best results.
men and the workingmen of our city are
the true conservative class. With them
must originate any movement of reform
which hopes to be successful. They and
heir families have everything at stake.
Ran administration of affairs as shall
the drooping industries of the city
tate, givo life and activity to trade,
icrease tho value of property, can be
•3cured ouly by putting forward good men,
whose intelligence is undoubted, and whose
msiness integrity is unimpeached,—men
who havo such an interest in the good
name and prosperity of the city as to give
security for the faithful discharge of their
public duties.
burden the property holders by a wasteful
and corrupt expenditure. They can be
found, if proper search is made, without
the aid of the lantern of Diogenes. How
welcome to all of us, would bo an election
in which all parties united to present such
candidates. It would inaugurate an era
of fraternity and good will which would
seen obliterate every root of bitterness,
and open to our depressed and impoverish-
A a. v -a.
Our office was visited last evening by a
gentleman, whoso manner and dress told
us plainly he belonged to the laboring
class of ttiis city, and who did uot hesitate
to avow that his political sentiments were
in antagonism to thoso of our paper. In
fact, wo are satisfied that he is at this time
a staunch, firm believer in the doctrines of
the Democratic party, and so wedded to
them, that it will require timo for him to
sco his errors.
He stated that he came to us with a
matter of news, which he wished us to
notice, preforriug we should do so, because,
our paper had exhibited an interest in the
working men, not felt or shown by any of
our cotemporaries.
Without reflecting upon them for pur
suing any course which snUs them best,
we do not hesitate to say that we do feel

in our mouth, with them, because tbey

sions of those who regard labor a disgrace.
Our party sentiments and their interests

alike, going hand in hand ; the arm of the
one encircling the waist of the other, they

and all like him, will and must undergo a
change; the future demands it and will

disposition to proselyte all such men to
our political faith, at once, we have calm!
surveyed the field and have calculated, to
a certainty, that they will, in a short time,
behold the injustice they are doing them
selves and unite thoir fortunes with tho
party which is enlisted in their behalf.
Yesterday we referred, in our local col
umns to the fact tbat Judge Bond had de
clined an invitation to be preseut al a ban
quet tendered him by tho Richmond bar,
if the late President of tho Confederate
States Jefferson Davis, was lo be present
We also informed our readers that his re
fusal to dive with Mr. Davis, had induced
a number of gentlemen of his profession to
withdraw from it, and gav-e it as our opin
ion that it was a deliberate attempt to
"capture" Judge Bond, in their political
net, which would have succeeded but for
the superior judgment of tbe Judge.
Such couduct was to have been expected
from a gentleman situated as Judge Bond
was, but we are called upon to record
another incident of a similar nature, of a
very significant character, and which has
rendered Mr. Davis' last visit to Richmoud
rather unpleasant unlest he. was a party,
to what may have been a party trick.
We are informed tbat Governor John
T. Hoffman, of New York, who bas been
iv the city for several daya, was, during
his stay, invited to take a carriage drive
around the city, accompanied by Mr.
Davis, and be too, most respectfully de

motive for refusing was, but it is liable to
He was either afraid
it would injure his chances for the next
Presidency, with the people of the North,
who are not particular admirers of Davis;
or it was done to deceive us here as to tbe
real object of his visit. In either event,
we are disposed to believe Mr. Davis must
feel badly and begins to know how it is
himself, in regard to tbe choosing of asso
Some of our cotemporaries have been
diligently searching to find some ground
upon which they might contradict our
"phizzle," without success, and we predict
that labor in tho same direction, to deny
"another phizzle," will be attended with
like results.
To win is to be great; to lose is to bo
It is very important that parties interest
ed should know that in order to vote at
the coming election it is not necessary for
their names to appear upon tbe books of
registration, but that it is necessary, with
out being registered, for them to prove
that they offered to register, armed with
all legal qualifications, and were refused.
The recent decisions of Judgo Guigon, by
which several hundred of the legal voters
of tho city were rejected by the registrars,
are not acknowledged by us to be correct,
and preparations are now being made by
which parties can demand their rights,
and if refused, may carry their cases be
fore the United States courts, where the
opinion of Judge Guigon will be properly
The necessary blank forms have beeu
prepared and all instructions necessary to
their procurement and completion, may be
obtained at tho rooms of the Republican
City Central Committee, in the old Law
Building, corner of Franklin street and
Capital Square. Persons who are situated
as wo havo described are urged to go at
once and prepare themselves for election
day. We presume there are no Democrats,
who are not properly registered, therefore
our remarks do not apply to them, hut
should there be any such, we extend them
the benefit of our advice, as we want to
sco neither party swindled, but prefer to
sco "fair play and a free fight."

The Ku-Klux Law.—The instructions
of tbe war department to the army officers
in the South show that the law is to bo
vigorously enforced. We are informed
that a large body of tbe ablest detectives
in the country have been for some time
past working up the secret organizations
of an unlawful character throughout tbo
South. They have placed the department
In possession of the Dames of parties in
these organizations, and, holdiug confiden

quarter. With this information in his
possession, the stern executor of the law
will know where to strike.
The Column Vrnilnmc Tin liicit
fflonunient Destroyed.
For nearly two hundred years the site of
this beautiful column has been famous.—
It was as long ago as 1688 that Louis
Quatorze founded the square, aud although
his designs were not completed, a colossal
equestrian statue stood until 1792 in its
centre, to remind the Parisians of tho
glories of the reign of tbo magnificent
monarch. Its Borrows bad long been well
nigh forgotten. To replace this statue,
which had then been destroyed, Napoleon,
in 1800, ordered a triumphal column, by
which his victories should ever be remem
bered, as were Trajan's by his pillar in
Rome, upon the model of which tbat of
Paris was built.
The shaft was formed of two hundred
and seventy-six plates of metal, cast from
twelve hundred guns taken from tho Aus
trian and the Prussians. From a height
of one hundred and forty feet tbe effigy in
bronze of the great modern conqueror
looked down upon the city at its feet, and
from base to capital were twined iv alto
relievo representations of the triumphs and
achievements of the campaign of 1805
and Austerlitz. Iv the reaction of tbe first
Bourbon return, in 1814, this statue of tbo
conqueror was removed, and one of
Henri of Navarre substituted, but
when Louis Philippe, the ctizen kini»
teigned, another statue of Napoleon, cast
from the cannon of Algiers, taken in 1830,
dressed with the historical great coat and
cocked bat, was again elevated, and the
old hero of Navarre removed to one of the
bridges over the Seine. It is this, the
bronzorecord of former victories over their
late conquerors—it is this, cast from tho
guns of Algeria, now escaping from her
grasp, which Paris is willing to surrender,
anxious to destroy.
The Fredicksburg Beraldsaya the fruit
of victory is ready to fall into the lap of
Democracy in 1872. That old hoary
headed rebel sinner Democracy has been
holding his lap, with the devil up iv the
tree shaking away, fur ten years or more,
without a particle of liuit being caught,
except what may be ?eeu by visiting some
of our numerous cemeteries. Fredericks
burg received a small share of this fruit
aometime during tho late unhappy diffi
culty, and we presume wants nn more of
such fruit as turns to ashes.
Col. Jeremiah Grigge, for many years
clerk of the courts of Henry county, is

the clerk's office and always feel kindly for

takes place, his "witnesses" may attend
the "summons," having been "subpeened"
to "testify in his behalf.''

Letter from Petersburg.
Petersburg, May 20, 1871.
To the Editor of the State Journal:
Ki-Ki.ri.—We learn that aome ten daya
ago Mr. Roderick Viughan, a very inoffensive
and harmless man, residing about three mile,
from thi. city, in Dinwiddle county, wa. taken
from bis house by a party of colored men, in
the neighborhood, and carried to tbe wood,
where he wi. very severely whipped, from the
effects of which he wa. taken sick and died a
few daya ago.
The above is from the local column of
the Courier of this morning. lam aston
ished to find such a glaring falsehood in
that paper. The Courier has been im
posed upon, and should take bis Mun
chausen informant to tack for his gross mis
Mr. Vaughan was a poor white man,
"inoffensive aud harmless," and withall a
general favorite with the colored people.
He was tbe last man they would harm,
and they are the last people to commit an
outrage on anybody. Mr. Vaughan was
taken sick a few days since iv his own
house, and died calmly and quietly, sur
rounded by his friends.
So you see it is not Republicans, who
"manufacture outrages for political effect."
Tbe Index is getting desperate. He is
afraid of the "independents" and is trying
to drive them into the "Radical" party.
And then he says I
Ignorance, itncompetency and knavery are
the three dimensions of the Radicil party of
the South. Is the city of Petersburg, are its
citizen, ready to band over to the carpet-bag
gers and idrenturers who lead tbe league, tbe
control of their finances, their property, their
I do not think tbe citizens of Petersburg,
who are any way familiar with the man
agement of the "finances" and the "pro
perty," etc. of this city, by the several
city councils since the war, will be very
much frightened at the idea of putting the
control of the city into the hands of these
"carpet-baggers and adventures who lead
the league."
The Republican party had the city gov
ernment for two years. During that time
they put the streots in better condition
than they have been at any time since the
war; repaired the public property and put
it in good order ; built two handsome and
durable iron bridges across tho Appomat
tox river; provided for the poor ■ kept an
efficient police; lighted the streets better
and at much less cost j built a handsome
fire engine house; purchased one good school
house and built another; and last, and
by no means least, provided a grand sys
tem of public schools, by meaus of which
over two thousnnd children could be thor
oughly educated. The Rspublicau Coun
cil accomplished all this, aud much more
that I have cot tho tima to enumerate,
and yet they managed the "finances" of
the city so as not to inaxase the burden of
the tax-payers one cent
Here in what tho Republican city gov
ernment have to bliow as an account of

asking what tho Democratic council have
to show as the result of the increased bur

The Shooting Accident. —The morning
paper, furnish v. with accounts of the acci
dental shouting of a young gentleman by a
young lady, which are in substance correct.
The young lady who had tbe misfortune to
shoot the gentleman, bad been presented
some time before with a .mall single-barrelled
cartridge pistol, which she kept either in ber
trunk or bureau. Desiring to .how the gen-,
tleman some letters, the left him on tbe porcb
and returned to her room to get tbe tetters.
The pistol being quite .mall, .he did not die
cover tbat it was batween the package of let
lera until she bid left the room. Upon hand
ing him the letter, the pistol wa. discharged,
owing doubtless to pressure upon the trigger,
she being ignorant tbat the bimmer wa.

corner of the eye, passing downwards into the
We learn that tbe gentleman rested quietly
last night, and while it is impossible for a
wound of its chancier not to become tore and
troublesome, we hope be may soon reoover
sufficiently to attend to the business in which
he is engaged.
We have been reque.ted by the friend, of
both parties not to mention the name, of those
concerned, with which request we cheerfully
comply, not only i. a pleasure, but a. a duty,

Fitness for Office. —It is presumed tbat
men are selected to fill positions of a public
character, with some regard to their fitness,
but this seems not to be tbe case with the indi

squire attached to the Capitol. The gnu i.
permitted to grow to a heighth destructive of
its best interest, while the weeds are as unno
ticed aa if they were ornaments instead of whit
they are, nuisance.. If the grass i. cut
down before its strength ia carried to the seed,
it will grow much more rapidly and abun
We know that this neglect is not owing to
the scarcity of labor, for our penitentiary ia
overflowing with it, and can be procured by
tbe Superintendent whenever desired.
Let him attend to tbia duty more carefully
and we will have an abundant and beautiful
crop of grass, soon hiding all the naked places
which now disgust the eye of the beholder.

As much his been said about gold medal awards
for Sewing Machines, I wish to soy a word myself.
The highest premiums awarded at the various fairs
in this country are of notoriously sjjall importmco,
some even less than others. If any importance'
attaches to any awards made late years, it is those
of the Exposition Cuiverselle, at Pans, 1867, where
all tbe principal Sewing Machines of the world were
in com: etitlon and where they were taken out into
an annexe md thoroughly tested; and here th-tcbarac
teristic urbanity aud fairness of the HOWE COM
PANY has often been remarked as In strong contrast
to the course pursued by some other c nipauie*.
