Evening i-itate fotmuil KDW'/VRD BANIKhS, KIiITOH AND MANAGER. i*« SINV*; Mali, 'tmli Klchmond, V«t Official Paper for the Government .MONDAY EVENING, MAY 20, 1871. INFAMY. In spite of the disposition of our politi cal enemies to denounce! members of our party and to take tho conduct of some of tbe bad nion who are in it and make cap ital against us, we are not disposed to be governed by the lex taleonis. The fact which we dosire to bring be fore the public, although occurring in a Democratic community and perpetuated by a body composed of Democrats, is not intended by us as a reflection upon tbe par ty, but to show the condition of a section of our enlightened State, which needs somethiug to deliver it from barbarism and brutality. Certainly the "free school" system of the Slate will not fail to become beneficial to a community cursed by such acts of barbarity. Foreigo missionaries could find at homo a work worthy of their Christian efforts. Russell county, in the southwestern por tion of our State, furnishes us with an oc currence disgraceful to civilization, and wbich reflocts upon the intelligence of that * section. Injustice against the majesty of the law deserves condemnation as well as if inflicted upon an individual. We copy from tho Bristol News of last week. The facts speak for themselves: New Method by which Jurors Aorkb.—A friend informs us tbat a jury was empanelled in Kussell county not long since to try a case of manslaughter. After bearing the testimony nl' Tarious witnesses and the argument of coun sel on both sides, the case was submitted to the jury, who immediately retired to their room ; the vote being taken, resulted seren in favor of conviction and five for acquittal. It was then proposed and agreed bj all tbe jurors that straws should be drawn for the verdict. Ac cordingly, straws were prepared, drawn, and resulted in favor of the five for acquittal; the verdict was therefore prepared, signed and ren dered by the jury in accordance with the de. clsion ot tbe straw drawing. This is a fact, we understand, as stated by one of the jurors in the case. We are not advocates of the A'tt- Klux bill," but think a little reconstruction of such jurors would not be amiss. m «i_»h m Hans Breitmann's New Book, entitled " Hans Breitmann In Europe, and Other New Ballads," is in press and will be published iv a few days by T. B. Peterson <fe Brothers, Philadelphia. It oontains Breitmann's travels and experi ence in Paris, in Belgium, in Holland, iv Germany, in Italy, in Rome, whero he in terviews the Pope ; also, Breitman as a Trumpeter, etc. It will no doubt prove to be more popular than his celebrated "Birty." It will be published in one vol ume, on the finest tinted plate paper, with a portrait of Breitmann on tha cover, and aold by all booksellers at sevonty-fivo cents a copy, or copies of it will be sent to any one, at once, to any place, post paid, on receipt of its price by tho pub lishers. ■■■ An admirer of the Commune infenmr- va that the destruction of the palaces of Par is, If it was done by the orders of the Commune, was a symbolic act, showing that these radical republicans were deter mined to destroy every prestige of remak ing royalty and Cassarlsm. This is but a poor excuse for the vandalism, that would destroy the Louvro -"U the Luxembourg "teith all t^ lr P rec ' ous Btores °f French , v would have been hotter to have (V _isecrated the Tuilleries, the Hotel de Ville, and tho Palais Royale to the pur. poses of republicanism than to have de molished them. «-_»» Strange Mail.—The Wheeling Intelli gencer was shown at the postoffice, on Wednesday last, a mail-box of bees, that were ou their way from Illinois to Chris tiansburg, Virginia. They were of some rare species, and seemed to be doing well,' not a dead one being visible. A short time ago a "horned toad" passed through tho office, hailing from San Francisco and bound for Washington, and a lizard also lately performed the same journey. ■ _, Seekino Knowledge.—Arrangements have been perfected in England for an ex cursion to this country of a number of publishers and editors of London journals. The British public will be better instructed la American affairs next winter than evor they wero before, for our Loudon brethren must learn that Boston is not a State, that New York is not the Union, that Fifth avenue is not a buffalo trail, and that Maryland is not within the limits of the National Capital. _ m. m ♦- The Seuate has found time between its persecutions of the newspaper correspon dents to ratify the additional treaty be tween the United States and Great Britain defining more clearly some of the provi sions of the naturalization treaty. i The women are too much for tho Louis ville Courier-Journal. That paper having said something "sassy" to Mesdames Wood hull & Clafilu, they retaliate by putting this and that together, as follows: "On Monday, April 10, fivu hundred barrels of Cincinnati whiskey were landed ou the levee in Louisville. On Wednesday, the 16th, the Louisvillo Courier-Journal ap peared without a line of editorial." [The Knquirer can console itself with the above,] RuloiT's head was cut off' a short time »fter his execution, and given to surgeons for examination. It was found to contain ten ounces more brain than usual, with a skull thick enough to defy a bullet. His body was several times disinterred by dif ferent parties, all anxious to obtain his bead, but were disappointed, it having been taken off before burial. James W. Hamilton, of Missouri, was struck by lightning last week and instant ly killed. Lightning is a hitter from Ilit tersville, and few men can stand a blow from it. New York papers, eager for a sensation, have reported that Mrs. Annie Claflin, is "missing.." Tbe old lady has probably gone out to spend a few days in tbe coun try and will return in time to spoil a good "ItWJ." THE STATE JOURNAL. Tim State Journal enters upon a now ca reer, under auspices which promise perma nence anil increased usefulness. This paper will be Republican. The organ of no wing or cliquo, it will aim to represent the policy of the National party; to build up a healthy .National sentiment, and inspire love of tho whole country. It will not be the vehicle of personal detrac tion, nor be used to get its pets into oliice, nor to keep others out. Tbe safety of all is in the triumph of the cause ; and to secure it, all must labor zealously and devotedly, and take tboir chances in the general result. Aiming to treat every member of its own party generously, it will be just to its oppo nents. It will discuss 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 "speak 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 as in another. We shall advocate all measures to advance tbo public good, originating in our own party or outside. There are vital questions enough between us 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 the 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 this sacred task we consecrate our paper. We shall plead the cause of tho little ones who havo no voice; and, in so pleading, we plead for tbe future of Virginia in whatever can make her great and glorious. The financial condition of tbe country, and especially of the 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 the encourage ment of a varied home industry. Wo are for Free Banking, under a system wbich makes money absolutely safe and accessible to busi ness men at living rates. We aro for such a revenue system as will preserve the public credit without imposing undue burdens upon the people. Realizing tho vast importance of mechanical and manufacturing industry, we Bball labor heartily for the development ol these interests, we shall give accurate and detailed informal tion of our vast natural wealth iv 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 the prosperity of all; that labor and capital, employer and employee, 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 tbat we will unite cordially and earnestly with men of all parties to removo every obstacle to the moral, intel lectual and physical progress of our State and nation. There are thousands of noble young men and women in the State full of grand capacity, now dormant and wasting. The old Commonwealth is sounding tbo drum-beat to duty. Let them shake off the night-m»ro of conservatism and old tradition, and march bravely to the work of tli>o n >*w da - So shall tbay rnaka tne ruture of Virginia worthy of the past, and themselves worthy of a great an cestry 1 » » ♦ —— REPUBLICAN NATIONAL PIRIFORM. the National Republican party of thu United States, assembled in National Convention in tho city of Chicago, on the 21st day of May, 1808, make tbe following declaration of principles: 1. We congratulate the country ou tho assured success of tho reconstruction policy ol Codgress, as evinced by tho adoption, in the majority of tho States lately iv rebellion, of constitutiuns securing equal civil and political rights to all; and it is the duty of the Government to sua tain those institutions and to prevent the people of such States from being remitted to a state of anarchy. 2. The guaranty by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal loou ut the South was demanded by every consideration of public safoty, of gratitude, and of justice, and must bo maintained; white the question of suffrage in all the loyal States properly belongs to the people of those State?. 3. Me denounce all forms of repudiation aa a na tional crimo; aiid the national honor requires the payment of tho public indebtedness iv the utter most good faith to all creditors at home and abroad, not only according to letter, but the spirit of tho laws under which it was contracted. 4. It is due to the labor of tho nation that taxa tion should bo equalized, and reduc.il .;< rapidly as the national faith will permit. 6. The national debt, contracted as it has been tor the preservation of the Union for all time to come, should be extended over a fair period i. _• redemption; and it is the duty of Congross to reduce the rate of interest thureou, whenever it can be honestly done. fl. That the host policy to diminish our burden of debt is to so improvo our credit that capitalists will seek to loan us money at lower rates of interest than wo now pay, and ninst continue to pay so long as re pudiation, partial or total, or covert, is threat ened or suspeoted. 7. The Government of the United States should be administered with the strictest oconomy; and the corruptions which have been so shamefully nursed and fostered by Andrew Johus_n call loudly for radi cal reform. 8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession to the Presidency of Andrew Johuson, who has acted treacherously to tho people who elocted him and the cause he was pledged to support; who has usurped high legislative aud judicial functions; who has re fused to execute the laws; who has used his high office to induce other officers to ignore and violate the laws; who haa employed his executive powers to render insecure the property, the peace, liberty and life of the citizen ; who has abused the pardon ing power; who has denounced the national legisla ture as unconstitutional; who has persistently aud corruptly resisted, by evory moans in his power, every proper attempt at the reconstruction ef the Statcß lately in rebellion; who has perverted the public patronage intuitu engino of wholesale cor ruption; and who has bevu Justly impeachod for high crimos and misdemeanors, and properly pro nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five Senators. 9. The doctrine of Great Britain aud other __u ropean powers, that because a mau is once a subject he is always so, must be resisted at every hazard by the United States, as _ rello of feudal times, not au thorized by the laws of Lations, and at war with our national honor and independence. Naturalized cit izens aro entitled to protection in all their rights ot citizenship, as though they were native-born; and no citizen of the United States, native or natural ized, must be liable to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign powor for acts done or words npoken in this country ; and, if so arrested and imprisoned, it is the duty of th_ Government to Interfere in his be half. 10. Of all who were faithful iv the trials of tbe late war, thore weie none entitled to more especial honor than tho brave soldiers aud seamon who eu dured the hardships of campaign und cruise, and im perilled their lives in the service of the country; the bounties and peusious provided by the laws for these brave defenders of the nation are obligations never to be forgotten ; tho widows and orphans of the gallant dead are the wards of the people—a sa cred legacy bequeathed to the nation's protecting care. 11. Foreign immigration, which in tho past has added so much to tho wealth, developement, and re sources, and increase of pj\yer to this republic, the asylum of tho oppressed of all nations, should bo fostered and eucouiaged by a liberal and just policy, 12. This convention declares itself in sympathy with all oppressed peoples struggling for their rights. I' That we highly commeud the spirit of mag- < nuuimity and forbearance with which men who have served iv tho robellion, but who now frankly and honestly co-operate with us in restoring the peace i of tho country aud reconstructing the South- , era State governments upon the basis of Impartial j justice and equal rights, are received back into the communion ot the loyal people; and we favor the removal of the disqualtticatiuus and restrictions im- | posed upon the late rebels in same measure as i the spirit of disloyalty will dfeout, and as may be con- , sistent with the safety of the loyal people. 14. Thrit wo recognize the groat principles laid , down in the immortal _><*•; lurutiou of lndepeirdeiice, . as the true foundatiou ot democratic goveriimeut aud we hail with gladness every effort toward mak* lug theue principle, a living reality on every inch of , Anerluau soil.
