Offlcirtl Paper for the Government-
SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 20, 1871.
THK NORFOLK DAY BOOK.
Sir Robert Poele was indeed v great man >
and no circumstance of his life proved the
fact more than when ho, m the British Par
liament, proclaimed that he was never too
old to correct bis errors. We haveomongs*
us great men too, but who fear in too
many instances to come forward and de-
Clare to the world that they bave erred and
done wrong. But for this want of moral
courage, a number of our sensible men,
who are still clinging to old obsolete anti
progressive Democratic ideas, only because
it is fashiouablo for respectable people to
do so, would, like our colemporary heading
this article, come out from among the wick
ed onog and proclaim, that for the future
they would bave no more of it.
Greatness does not consist in consisten-
cy when one's principles are wrong, but
In the abilty and disposition to lay aside
old associations, give up wrong ideas, dis
card political prejudices, and become un
selfish in advocacy of tbo one groat idea of
doing good to the greatest number of pea-
pie.
Tho Bay Book is one of that class of
newspapers, which honestly attempted a
vindication of its party principles fo long
aa it believed them right, but, when con
vinced that its party was the great enemy
of our republican government, that it was
reactionary, selfish, sectional and ruinous
to the best interests of the American Union,
it boldly planted itself in opposition to it,
and has by its action, won the esteem of
all who are cognizant of the fact.
We are fully aware that Ibis act bas
made enemies of many of its former friends
and patrons, bnt it only proves the sincer
ity which induced the change.
Mauy persons are illiberal enough to
charge, that whenever a man changes his
political faith, it is from a motive of gain
and selfishness ; in all such cases tbe old
rule will apply, that if you want to catch
a rogue, yon must put a rogue upon the
watch.
They who never cease to impugn the
motives of others are open to the charge of
bad motives in all their actions. We com
mend the Bay Book, and those connected
with it, to tho kind consideration of the
Republican party throughout the Stato.
The Treaty Mystery.—Who struck
Billy Patterson, was a momentous question
once with tha aforesaid Hiberiau and his
immediate frionds. The guess was not
soccessful as history relates, but William
learned to keep his aching cocoanut more
carefully. The United States Senate is
pressing au enquiry of about equal im
portance and with no more flattering pros
pect of success. It may learn from this
little story, a useful moral, and save its
endangered dignity.
Natural Rtsonrscs of Virginia.
We find an excellent article in yester
daya Whig, signed P, upon this subject-
Tub writer recommends official surveys of
the State, and the publication reports as
bat been done by other Statea.aurl proceeds
as follows:
Now, what of this kind has been done
for the State of Virginia ? Almost noth
ing. The world knows in a loose and in
definite way, that Virginia in her climate,
•oil, vegetable, animal, and mineral pro
ductions, claims to be unsurpassed by any
other country, but she gives no official
guarantee of the truth of such claims.
What little has been published about her
resources, is lost in scattered and detached
papers. When one wishes to know some
thing about tbe resources of tho State, he
must come and travel over the country,
losing time and spending money. Need
we say that the capitalist cannot afford to
do this?
Now, tbe question is, what must be done
to remedy this ?
About the year 1835 the Legislature ap
pointed a corps of persons to make
A GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF TIIB STATE.
At the head of this stood Professor Wil
liam B. Kodgers, a gentleman of the
highest scientific attainments. Notwith
standing the fact that these men had to
work in entirely unexplored ground, and
were cramped by the smallness of the sum
appropriated, and by the indifference of
the people, much work was done, and even
in that limited time discoveries valuable to
tbe agricultural interests of the country
were made. Reports were published io
detached form, but never afterwards col
lected into book form. The result was
tbat tbe work ceased from want of sup
port, and there now exists nowhere, in a
combined form, auy record of what was
done. Hence Virginia, tbo oldest of the
States in the Union, is at this day com
pelled, with shame, to admit tbat less is
known of her natural productions than of
those of tbe youngest territory of them all.
It was the purpose of Prof. R., oo cooi-
Sleting his investigations, to establish in
lohmond a State collection, in which
would be embraced specimens of the min
erals, soils, vegetable and animal produc
tions of the State, which being open to
the public, and being accompanied by maps
and the printed matter of tho reports,
would furnish
A COMPLETE PHYSICAL HISTORY
of the State. Here one could go, aud at
a glance see before him specimens of evory
thing of interest or technical value to bo
found in tbe State. It was his desire also
to establish a laboratory, where could be
examined tbe marls, limestones, etc., in
wblcb the State abounds, and in whose
development agricultural interests bave so
much at stake.
Sueb an establishment would form a
nucleus for farther collections, such as of
specimens of manufactured Articles, models
of machinery, &c, where the mechanic
and artisan could repair, and study to im
prove bis productions. Such establish
ments are to be found iv all the principal
cities of Europe, and are valued highly as
means of improving the tastes and skill of
the working classes.
Now, cannot we at least make a com
mencement of such an establishment ? —
Tha cost would be far lees than might be
supposed, and we are sure that the people
stand ready heartily to cooperate. F.
THK STATIC JO.RV AL
Tan Siatb Joursal enters upon a new ca
reer, under auspice, which promise perma
_!__-. **«•
of no wiog or cliiue, It will aim to represent
the policy of th* National party; to build ap
a healthy National sentiment, and inspire love
of tbe whole country.
It will not be the vehicle of personal detric
tlon, nor he used to get its pets into office, nor
to keep others out The safety of all is in tbe
triumph of the cause ; and to secure it, all
must labor zealously and devotedly, and take
tbeir chance, in the general result.
Aiming to treat every member of its own
party generously, it will be just to its oppo
nent.. It will discus, all questions of public
interest fairly and temperately. Asserting the
right earnestly and resolutely, and bating no
jot or tittle of the truth which it is called to de
clare, It will aim to "apeak the truth in love."
It will commend genius, patriotism and vir
tue everywhere, and be as prompt to expose
corruption and imbecility in its own party aa
in another.
We sball advocate all measures to advance
the public good, originating in our own party
or outside. There are vital questions enough
between ns and the opposition without seeking
issues where all good men should stand on
common ground.
Believing popular Education to be the one
crying want of our State and of tbe country,
we shall give large space to its advocacy. To
educate thoroughly all the children of tbe
State should be the supreme and paramount
work of legislation. To tbia .acred task we
consecrate our paper. We .hall plead the
cause of tho little one. who have no voice;
and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of
Virginia in whatever can make her great and
glorious.
Tbe financial .condition of the country, and
especially of Ihe South, will not be neglected.
We advocate a financial policy which will
bring back again to the South more than its
old prosperity. We are for tbe encourage
ment of a varied home industry. We are for
Free Banking, under a system which makes
money absolutely safe and accessible to busi
ness men at living rates. We are for such a
revenue system as will preserve tbe public
credit without imposing undue burdens upon
the people.
Realizing tbe vast importance of mechanical
and manufacturing industry, we shall labor
heartily for the development oi these interests,
we sball give accurate and detailed informa
tion of our vast natural wealth in mines, for
ests, water.powers and fisheries.
Believing in the "harmony of interests," we
shall endeavor to show how fully each is de
pendent upon tbe prosperity of all; tbat labor
and capital, employer and omployeo, should
be allies and friends, enriching each other by
fraternal co-operation.
Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a Vir
ginia farm, which we leave lovingly and re*
luctantly for awhile, we have learned some
thing of what wide and varied knowledge,
what patience, economy and administrative
ability it takes to make a farmer. We shall
give large space to Agriculture and Horticul
ture.
In conclusion, we will say that we will unito
cordially and earnestly with men of all parties
to remove every obstacle to the moral, intel
lectual and physical progress of our State and
nation. There are thousands of noble youDg
men and women in the State full of grand
capacity, now dormant and wasting. The old
Commonwealth is sounding the drum-beat to
duty. Lot them shake off the night-mare of
conservatism and old traditions, and march
bravely to tbe work ol this new day. So shall
they make the future of Virginia worthy of
the past, and themselves worthy of a great an
cestry 1 .
KKPIBLIIAN .NAIiONAI. PLATFOBM.
Ihe National Republican party of the United
States, assemblod In National Convention in the city
of Chicago, on the 21st day of May, ISB6, make tlie
following declaration of principles:
1. We congratulate the country on the assured
succcsb of the reconstruction policy of Congress, as
evinced by the adoption, in the majority of the
States larely lv rebellion, of constitutions securing
equal civil and political right! to all; and it is the
duty of the Government to sustain those institutions
aud ti prevent the people of such States from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Conferees of equal suffrage to
all loyal men at the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safely, of gratitude, and of
Justice, and must ba maintained; while the question
of suffrage in ill the loyal Statu properly belong!
to tho people of those States.
3. We denouueo all forms of repudiation as i na
tional crime; aud the national honor requires the
payment of tho public Indebtedness in the utter
most good faith to all creditors at homo aud abroad,
not only according to letter, but the spirit of tbe
liwb under which It was contracted.
4. It is due to tue labor of the nation that taxa
tion should be equalized, and reduced an rapidly as
the national faith will permit.
6. The national deb!, contracted as It has boen for
the preservation of tho Union for all time to come,
should beextoudod over a fair period for redemption;
and it lithe duty of Congress to reduce the rate of
interest thereon, whenever it can bo honestly done.
0. That the best policy to diminish our burden of
debt is to so Improve our credit thit capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates of Interest thin
we now pay, and must continue to pay so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
7. The Government of the Uuited States should be
administered with the strictest economy; and the
corruptions which hive been so shamefully nursed
and fostered by Andrew Juhnsen call loudly for radi
cal reform.
8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession
to thePresiden-yof Andrew Johnson, who has acted
treacherously to the people who elected him and the
cause be was pledged to support; who has usurped
high legislative and Judicial functions; who hie re
fused to execute the laws; who has used his 1 igh
office to Induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who has employod his executive powers
to render insecure the prope-ty, the peace, liberty
and life of the citizeu ; who baa abused the pardon
ing power; wflo has denounced tho national legisla
ture as unconstitutional; who has persistently md
corruptly resisted, by every means in his power,
every proper attempt at the rccot.structlon of the
States lately in rebellion; who has perverted the
publio patronage into in engine of wholi-sale cor
ruption ; and who bas boon justly Impeached for
high crimes aud misdemeanors, aud properly pro
nounced guilty thereof by tbe vote of thirty-live
Senators.
9. The doctrine of Great Erltain and other Eu
ropean powers, that because a man is once v subject
he is always so, must be resisted at every hixard by
the United Stites, as a relic of feudal times, uot au
thorized by the laws of titious, md nt war with our
national honor and independence. Naturalized clt*
Izeus are entitled to protection in all their right! ot
citizenship, as though they were i.atlve-boru; and
no citizen of the United States, native or natural
ized, must be liable to arrest and imprisonment by
any foreign power for acts done or words spoken In
this country ; aud, if so arrested and imprisoned, it
Is the duty of the Government to interfere in his be
half
10. Of all who were falthfnl In the trials of the
late war, there were none entitled to more espoclul
honor than the brive soldiers md seamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign aud cruise, and im
perilled tbeir lives iv the service of the country;
the bounties and pensious provided by the luvva for
these brave defenders of the nation aro obligations
never to be forgotten ; tho widows and orphans of
the gallant dead are tbe wards of the people—a sa
cred legacy beuuea-hed to the natiou's protecting
care.
11. .Foreign Immigration, .which in the past has
added so much to the wealth, developomeut, and re
sources, and increase of power to this republic, the
asylum of tbe oppressed of all nations, should be
fostered aud encouraged by a liberal aud just policy.
12. This convention declares Itself iv sympathy
with ell oppressed pooples struggling for their rights.
13. That we highly commend tho spirit of msg
uaulmity aud forbearance with which men who have
served in tbe rebellion, but who vow frankly aud
honestly co-operate with us in restoring the peace
of the oountry and iec< instructing the South
ern Statu governments cpon the basis of Impartial
justice aud equal rlgbts, are received back into the
oonimnulon of the loyal po-iple; aud we tavor th.
removal ef th. disqualifications and restrictions Im
posed upon the late rebels In tbe same measure as
the spirit of disloyalty will die out, aud as miy be con
sistent with the safety of the loyal people.
14. That we recognize tbe ar-\'it principles laid
down iv tbo immortal Leclarution of Independence,
as tha true foundation of democrats government
and we hail with gladnass .very effort toward mak
ing these principle* a living reality on every Inch of
