AND TIIK linu We are, like the Memphis Avalanche, reminded of Lord Dundreary's conundrum about the tail and the dog, but not from the same causo. It applied it to a Cincin natti paper which attempts to read Mr. Vallandigham out of the Democratic par ty ; we to the Richmond Dispatch, which attempts to read such men as Andrew Johnson and Jeff. Davis nut of its party. The one declares in favor of repudiation, the other that the principles upon which the war was fought, are not dead. Cunning politicians and newspapers, whose mana gers aro "old stagers," know bow to man age these little affaire more cautiously than the great leaders, who will be honest and outspoken, in spite of the effort of the ma nipulators to "gag" them. Who doubts the orthodoxy of Mr. Davis Democrat ? Who dare proclaim that he is not pure aud spotless as one ? aud who, of all the men in the limits of tho late defunct Confederacy, is held higher in the admiration cf the party than Mr. Davis ? W r ho could unite, with such har mony, tho party! No matter what his declarations may be, Joff. Davis is the God of Southern Democracy, and but expresses tho hidden sentiments of the majority. His caution was never great, but none doubted his honesty. What shall we say of the companion of the immortal Lincoln, upon whose shoul ders fell his mantle, when he was so cru elly assassinated ? What shall bo said of him who won the gratitude of the South by his efforts to defend her against North ern injustice ? What shall be said of tho man who can call together an "immenso audience," and hold them spell-bound for "three mortal hours" with his fiery elo quence and his exposition of Southern feelings? If the tail is not wagging the dog, when the Dispatch attempts to repu diate these great leaders, it is keeping him vory uneasy by its effoits. It attempts to prove that the Demo cratic party looks with disfavor upon re pudiation, by referring to the fact that the Dispatch is opposed to it. Upon what meat hath this our Ca?aar fed that he hath grown so great ? We know not its char acter, but are prepared to believe, that it favors any measure which will defeat the I Republican party, and that whatever policy tho Democracy may adopt, it Ia ready to cry " I yield." The difference between Johnson, Davis and the Dispatch is simply this, that the former are known and read of all'men, while the latter is confined to tbe nar row limits of not mora than one-half of the great American Union. They sot up, you pull down, but it is after the mighty train of the nation has passed aud viewed their work. Davis or Johnson either are better prepared to expound the principles of their party than those of lesa experi ence and have the candor to express their real sentiments. A «1 ATVKAI. DBOVCTION. The escape of Lucien Baird, the ho rse thief, from the jail of Richmond, is a sign that General Grant will not be re-elected President. General Grant ia said to be very foud of and a great admirer of good horses. Lucien Baird generally selected the very best, and would have no others when he made a raid upon stables. Now put tho two together aud you have the result. Beard being a horse thief who delighted in stealing fino horses; Mr. Grant being a friend of these animals would have had Beard taken to Washington, just as soon as ho hoard of his arrest, if he had not have beeu satisfied that Beard's freedom was absolutely necessary to his re-election This fact was of more importance to hi m than the punishment of a man who de. lighted in stealing animals to which he is so much attachtd. Altogether we are satisfied Beard only escaped because Mr. Grant was satisfied bo would lie of great There is just about as much sense in our conclusion as there is in those of an article which appeared in one of our morning pa. pers, stating that the release of the Tri bune's correspondents is evidence that Mr. Grant will not be re-olected. We do not know that he will, but are disposed to be lieve that he has the inside track for nomi nation, which, if he secures, will certainly Our Democratic papers are a little hasty iv their prophecies, and should be careful how they speak of men, since it is uncer tain whether their party, in its industrious search in our ranks for a suitable candidate, may not .elect Mr. Graut, himself, as the THE IV 10 W MOV-SMKMT. The Dispatch suddenly find, itself lifted upon the highest pinnacle of fame, where, [ although uneasy by the many prickings of its sharp point, and a giddiness in the head because it is not in the habit of "walking I logs," looks dowu with pity uf ion it. en vious neighbors and saya, "I did it." Its uneasiness is not relieved by imagin ing, that after awhile the wholo pack will I be crying "I started the fox, 'twi s me that j first jnmpod him." It knows a thing or two about tbe business, anddecla res it sees a determination to take from it t he credit of tbe new, or Walker movement . VVe are not going to dispute « ith it, its right to father the, "bastard," a»d we im agine it is rather more "scared tb. an hurt." We can't wo why oar .eight) or should I in llic Wnlkt-r mr.vpm-.rif 'i-i n-_.i,an.rj in iv. »» inner nion niiMii, ,i* newspapers geuerally like to put the "dirly work" on somebody else. We, in Virginia, know what tricking and fraud were embraced in tbia whole af fair, from the beginning of tbo deceptive conduct of the "Committee of Nine" to the completion of the transaction, by tho election of a political trickster to the Gov ernorship. You can't put your finger in our eyes agnin, and as the four years of the war enabled tho Dispatch to run the politi cal machine without opposition, we were not up to such tricks, as well as the more intelligent Northern politicians, whose eyes are wide open and not tn bo shut by THAT'S WHAT'S THE JUliiiil We have never denied the willingness of the people to return to their allegianco to tbo government, and so far as the writer has observed, they have been willing and anxious to do so. What then has been tho cause of this holding back—this sullen obedience to tho laws—this determination to join issue with tho friends of union '.' We unhesitatingly answer, that Jeff. Da vis, aided by the old played-out political leaders; and they encour aged in their damnable efforts by tho press. These aro the creatures who have been robbing the peoplo of the precious time wasted since the close of the war, by fighting against measures adopted for the good of us all. Wo don't dare doubt the sincerity of the Whig, when it declares that Mr. Davis is doing great harm by the doctrines he is instilling into the minds of the people, and yet we cannot help think ing it a piece of political strategy just at this lime. His conduct and talk is likely to interfere with the "new movement," which, in substance, declares the issues of tbe war—dead. i It is rather late to call off these "blood hounds," now that they have scat tered th« flock and socked the life blood of the lambs of the South. The voices of Inche, Tray and Sweetheart have been rd, yolping treason these five years, le tho yells of the huntsmen were heard ye the din, encouraging the pursuit, lall off your pack, now, gentlemen, :e you have completed the destruction. v can do no more harm : they and r doctrines have been pronounced thle.s by the very party they foolishly igined they were serving, and there is hing left for them to do but to curl their 1 hl.ss carcasses upou the still warm bank aud givo up tho ghost. ■pward and Onward.—When South- Democracy steals tbe virtues of Re publicanism, in order to succeed in the next Presidential race, it will become our duty to go forward in search of such higher Sas will be beyond their reaoh. The old wind-broken, spavined, wind -1 horse, is, by near cuts, endeavoring ertake our fleeter steeds, which have ept the main track, and if ho should suc ceed, we are not going to give him time to ! sponge, but will out again for itrotch. Whip and spur will be applied, but we imagine it will 3d, as Mr. Grant's opinion of is worth rather better than Val 's. fFERSON Davis canuot keep still, mtinually assert that the "lost iot lost; and the Southern De o continually applaud the aenti declare that on this line they it out, no matter how long it ow, the few words by Davis, by others from Stephens, scat rol'essions as aro contained in the ution of the Pennsylvania Dem tform, and tbo several and Bun ions of other bodies, endorsing -ighaiu "departure," as chaff is by the winds.

Jn this at least the 1 prefer to believe as tho true avis aud Stephens, and be warn -gly. A Vermont Anecdote.—A certain good-natured old Vermont farmer pre served bis constant good-nature, let what would turn up. Ono day, one of his men came in, bringing the news that one of the red oxen was dead. "Is he?" said the old man. "Well, he was always a breachy cuss ! Take his hide of and carry it down to Fletcher's ; it will fetch the cash." An hour or so afterward the man came back, wilh the news that I.ineback and his mate were both dead. Are they? said the old uiiui. Well, 1 took them of B. to save a bad debt tbat I never expected to get. It is lucky that it ain't the briudles. After the lapse of another hour the man came back again, to tell him that the nigh brindlo was dead. Is he ? aaid the old man. Well, he was a very old ox Take off his hide, and take it down to Fletcher's; it's worth cash and will bring more than any two of the others. Hereupon, bis wife, wbo was a very pious soul, reprimanded her husband se- j verely, and asked him if ho was not ] aware that bis loss was a judgment of heaven upon him for his wickedness. Is it? said tbe old fellow. Well, if they will take the judgment in cattle it is the easiest way I can pay it.

Voice.—We are perfectly willing pired by the sweet voice of a pretty mt when it comes to hearing a great v singing, just over you, for two or rs every day, it is more than human n bear. In tbe midst of our labors, reed to hear "Robert, tho Devil" sung every day ; he is just running away piano accompaniment, now. Oh If his name is Robert, we meant ' and not "sung."

Charles H. Porter, made a speec i , and that it was characteristic. U as not present, consequently did no Ye can account for the mistake in n ipt that the Whig knows he id reliab c and tbat as he promised to speak, he could no Illy fail. .tested Election.—Wo imagined Jarces had played out, but in Tnckahoe nip, Henrico county, where tbe result to satisfy tho oliice seeking aspirations mi Democrats, the election is to be run , and we find an array of legal talent yed equal in number almost to the con testants. This is a waste of time and money, unless the counsel employed, from patriolis-n alone, havo agreed to do the work, as we have never heard of but two election contests being decided in favor of Republicans since tbe war io Virginia. We advise Republicans interested to lurrtnder at discretion. when one of the grand scribes of tbe great party, whoso opposition to progress had ren dered it a by-word and a shame to all nations, demanded of one of the scribes of tbe great bodj of good men, if he could answor the ques tion "How is this for high V" When he spoke of the great man "Moses," who bad load unto the promised land; where men do make mighty feasts and wliose greatest sacrifice, waa not of burnt offerings, but consisted of taking nnto themselves great quantities of silver and gold, wbich was the property of others, thereby sacrificing not their own but other men' goods; twenty and six good and obedient fol lowers out of thirty, which was necessary t make perfect the number. Tho Scribe wisely answers that Moses move, from among the people with whom he ha< dwelt in unity and peace, beoaase it had been prophesied, that to remain wilh them, he should never enter the promised land, bat onl permitted to view Its beautiful valleys an peaceful hills. Not desiring to see the propbeo lultiled, he struck his tent, which was in Jef ferson, and pitched it in tbe land of greater promise, named Madison Ward, thereby ex pecting to fulfil the prophecy, which bad de» clarcd that he should become one of the elect. -Having, with a great caravan of camels and asses, started on bia journey, they were over come with a great thirst, when Moses smote a rock, whicb immediately gave forth a stream of soup—called beef. This soup was thin and the mighty host could drink it only by using straws, through which it was sucked. For this sin, Moses was cursed, and the pro- Iy fulfilled lhat be should only see the pro -1 land. This promise was kept, and ugh some of the children of Israel passed Moses is still mightily grieved because he eft behind. Mcses can better answer the I scribe's question : How is this for hele >or Greshau !—Wo have boen Rc can fot a number of years, bat can't oop to remain wiib a party so cruel as to it one of its members to persecute a Demo just because he refused to let everybody who had a right to do so. ■_. course tbe poor fellow is persecuted, how could it be otherwise, with such angelic crea tures as those appointed to conduot oar elec tions? Poor little, wee darlings 1 tbt very idea makes us sned tears of repentance, that we ever belonged to a party of such cruelty. What is persecution of Democrats, becomes justice to-Kepublicans. Such silly stuff 1 Away withitl away with itll If the man has vio lated a law which be was sworn to protect, Sunish him ; and if from the least to even your ndge, either or all will trample upon the rights of the humblest, they deserve to be punished and should receive it. We ask no quarter, and will give none. Do your worst; then let every officer of the law dare do bit duty and punish the offenders. How About This ?—This Important question oomes up from Manchester with the information that Judge Cox failed in his duty someway, by means of which the late election will be declared void, and that the present in cumbents will hold over. If Judge Cox will hold on a little longer he will acquire quite a reputation as an election judge. He is next to head now, and has only to make one more effort to trap the head man, who shall bo nameless. While we don't blame Democrats for trying to be councilmen in a city where tho emolu ments are sufficient t« make a man rich in one term, wo do think they are doing wrong to persist in trying to rob us of the little of fices we fill, by fairly electing our candidates. We submit to just whatever you gentlemen may choose to do unto us, but it ia only because we can't help ourselves. Attempted Robbery.—Sunday night last, some thief attempted to rob the house of Squire Mitchell, on Clay street He was so _r successful as to affect an entrance into the louse, but was frightened off before he secured any property. Now that the election is over, thieving will again become fashionable. As Squire Mitchell is a good Republican, the rob jer must have been a Democrat. Party rules will not permit either to steal from his own Keep ye cool, by choice selections of eading matter, such as the Chimney Corner, -very Saturday, Harper's Bazar, New York jedger, and a host of other papers; and if iomething more solid is needed, why just select 'rom among the following magazines: liar- I per's, Scribner's, Galaxy, Eclectic, Lippin lott's Atlantic, People's, Arthur's, Peterson's, Godey's, Detnorest's and Leslie's fashion books—each and all of which can bo had on application at the newß and book emporium of Johnston <_ Selden, 918 Main street. Amusement. —Tho Richmond Amateur Dramatic Association announce to tho public, their determination to break the monotony of the present time by treating us to one of their entertainments at tho theatre, on Thursday night next. The long spell which we have tome so patiently without any amusement election entertainments excepted) has witted he appetite of our amusement lovers; and tbe isrty composing the association may prepare bemselves for a full and capable house to wit ness their performances. Pythian Tournament.—The Knights »f Pythias had a grand time on yesterday—at east we imagine so from the accounts we see f the affair in the morning papers. The True Knight won the prize, as he should always do, which was a handsome saddle and iridle, and had tbe honor of crowning one of Richmond's fairest daughters Queen of Love and Beauty. There seemed to bo great virtue in a name on yesterday, and wo have never felt disposed o acknowledge lhat a "Rose" by any other name would smell so sweet. We have aweak iess for the name, and can't help showing it. Ye hope our neighbor is satisfied with the rowd in atlendanoe. Hotel Arrivals.—We shall hereafter publish the arrivals at our first-class hotels, up o 2 P. M. each day. Ford's Hotel—H L Cowan, Va.; B T 'aughan, Va.; R H Land, wife aud daughter, _ing and Queen; W W Wright, do.; Mrs ' C Smith, Mass ; Mrs L E Breed, Chicago.

Break Down.—About 9 o'clock this morning, while a gentleman was driving down laiu street near our office, in a buggy, one of ie hind wheels suddenly gave way, emptying lim into the street The gentleman was past hat age of life when it is a success to get oat f breaking buggies, therefore we were grati fied whea we found he bad escaped unhurt. Personal— Judge Hugh 1,. Bond ar ived in the city tosday, and expects to leave or Raleigh, N. C. to-night. Tbe Hon. John Ambler Smith, attended by number of prominent gentlemen, left the city his morning, on the Chesapeake and Ohio oad, for the Valley, where he will on Thurs ay next, lead to the marriage altar, Miss Lew s, daughter of the Hon. John F. Lewis. U. S. Circuit Court.—This Court was pened to-day at 12 M., and was engaged in tearing the argument in the case in bankrupt. ' that was set for a bearing to day, at the ose of the last session. Colonel Robert Bulling, now assessor ol in ernal revenue for the Norfolk district, has just ailed to see us. His appearance indicates tat a good fat offioe agrees with his constitu. Thk Ceremonies To-day.—At this hour we have been unable to learn anything of the iroceedings of those engaged in dooorating the raves of the Federal soldiers at the National Jemetery.

The first and second tables on the right are filled with all tbe good things and fancy articles as is common for ladies to sup ply. Miss Margaret Allen is the hostess. In the centre of tbe room ia tho ice cream saloon, over bung by tbe life-size portrait of Judge James H.

On the left he first and second tables are nnder the super vision of the estimable lady, Mrs. Beard, who las a kind word for all.
