Fair dealing on our part must wiu the respect of our political adversaries— no one appreciating this fact more highly than we do, and earnestly desiring tho re spect of the community with which wo have cast our fortunes, without sacrificing principle*.we wish to bo unfair to no man, and if it is possible to do so, shall conduct our paper, keeping these facts iv view. Ours is principally a political paper, de voted to the interests of the Republican party, and when a fight takes placo be tween Democracy and tho Republican party, we must be looked for where wo properly belong on the side of the latter. It must not be expected of us to defend all the members of our party, or to assail individuals of the opposition, but wo hold ourselves in readiness to assail the flagrant public acts of men whenever wo believe it to either the interest of our party or the community to do so. Men of like profession of ourselves, re alize the difficulties which surround us at times, while outsiders are ignorant, hence tho necessity of this article. We are disposed to refer to a publication mado in our paper during last week, but shall not do so, as the matter has passed and wo are satisfied that we vindicated our selves in the estimation of all who were disposed to judge impartially. This morning, both the Dispatch and the Enquirer, contain in their local columus a denial of our statement of Friday last, that Mr. W. G. Frecmau had declared that he was not a Democrat and in the most emphatic manuer denounced the party. But for tho similarity of the articles, satis fying us that they were prepared by the same person and handed to each of the pa pers, we might be inclined to believe there wa j a little newspaper strategy in them, and tbat tho words Conservative and Democrat wero not recognized by them as meaning the same thing. Our statement In regard to Mr. Freeman was made upon corroborating statements of two parties at different times, which statements we intend to lay before the pub lic so as lo JHstify ourselves. We are strangers to Mr. Freeman, never saw him, and know nothing personally ot his politics, nor do wo care what thoy are. Wo are disgusted with these quibbles and counter statements, but are too old to pub lish as facts any statements without being prepared to sustain them. Wo will show to the public that Mr. Freeman requested the publication of our article, at least, tha' we were requested to do so by two parties who profesped to come from him. If we do this, we have placed ourselves right be fore the community, by whom we shall leave Mr. Freeman and his authorized statements, directly conflicting, to be ■ judged. There seems to be a want of re liability among some men in Richmond, to which we are strangers. It seems we aro becoming acquainted rapidly ; we desire to curtail this, as far as is in our power. .-. ANOTHER LINK. The Courier-Journal says: "Slavery, the all-absorbing issue, has passed away. The negro is a free man, he is a citi zen, he is a voter. The various stages in tbe journey from servitude to suffrage divided great masses of people. Thousands of Demo crats resisted emancipation ; resisted equality before the law; resisted enfranchisement.— Thousands of Republicans contended for each in succession. All have been secured. There is therefore nothing left of the negro question to separate the honest Republican and tbe honest Democrat, who love their country more than any political organization, unless the Demo cratic party proposes to disturb the settlement of the negro question and to nullify tbe terms which now exist." The Democratic party of Kentucky does propose to disturb it. Its candidate for Governor says so, its central organ says so, its masses say so. Then why not, hon est Democrats, take the Courier-Journal's advice aud join tho honest Republicans on one platform—love of country —a desire for her good. It is the only just course left.— Louisville Commercial. So we have clearly exhibited the inten tions of Kentucky Democracy, in spite of the "new movement" declarations. This samo Democracy was so conservative dur ing the war, that it declined to take sides with the Confederacy, but preferred to ro maiu neutral. If this very Conservative Democracy can declare its determination to disturb the provlsious of the constitu tion protecting the rights of tha colored people, what right havo we to expect less from those who did not remain neutral during the war! The "unfortunates" of Democracy are numerous and have a de cided weakness for "telling tales out of school." A gentleman, by the name of Davis, who figured rather conspicuously in tho late Confederacy, cannot be made to hold his tongue, in spite of the winks and pinches of the politicians. Andy John son, too, he must go aud blab something he knows about the secret workings of the order. A pity it is, for tbe good of the country, that these gas-bags can't be kept quiot. We can stand it if Democracy can, and as an evidenc. of our willingness, have no hesitation in saying that Johnson's Knoxville speech will be worth to us a hundred thousand Democratic votes in New York alone There tho people are more interested in the public debt, and in maintaining tha credit of the goverumant, than in tbe success of Democracy, arid will prove their interest in the question bj ' repudiating repudiation. If you can only catch and cage Davis Johnson, Stephens, and such Democratic papers as hay» the frankness to avow tht real purposes of the party, you may roakf. another successful "wool-pulling," bu| until then you had as well givo up the en terpriso as a bad job. The American peo ple will not be caught by such chaff. ' neither will the old custom of "tail-salt ing" succeed. You must make anothet "now movement," more in accord with tho facts, before you can capture such men 1 as we have just named. ' "If at first you don't succeed." -_,—. MR. QRBBLEV MlliASlll-U. "The best laid plans of mice and men,' aro often disturbed by some unforseen event, or some trifling circumstance, there by totally destroying ambitious designs which never dreamed of difficulties. For years Mr. Greeley bas been pulling "gee" and "haw," endorsing tho b.iil bond of Jeff. Davis, first abusing, then praising the Southern people, first favoring Ku- Kluxing them, then Ku-Kluxiag the Ku- Klux, &c, c_c, evon down to telling what be knows about farming. 11. is now in Texas, and has viewed, in passing, the banks of the grand Miesii sippi, und can tell the people exactly how to _top the mighty How of waters, which occasionally break forth from their channol and gj rushing on, carrying destruction in their path. In fact he knows more than auy dozen meu in tlio world, besides know ing just how long a man should he Presi dent. With all his knowledge and political shrewdness there is one thing ho did not know or anticipate ; or, knowing, he fail ed to sco its importance—that is that the llichmond Dispatch was going to oppose his election as President. This is singu lar, too, considering that for so many years he has been the controlling man of ono of tho leading uowspapers of New York. The Dispatch inf.rms us that while Mr. Greeley is honest and capable, the South ern people can never bo induced to vote for him, and M tho Dispatch constitutes a part of them, of course it will not sustain him. Go homo, Mr. Greeley; hang up your hat on a peg in one of the editorial rooms of tho Tribune, and be satisfied to know, the edict has gono forth from the Dispatch office, that you can never be President of these United States. Toddle ! Lightfoot.—The Dispatch has a cor respondent of this name, writing from "Roanoke," concerning the late elections. We don't know where "Roanoke" is. unless it is Roanoke county. If so, wo beg to differ with "Lightfuot," as we know that party lines were Jrawn, and that the noble fighting of tha colored men resulted in tha election of the Republican ticket by a large majority in the principal (Salem) township. Roanoke has never gone any other way but Republican since the war, except when she elected plain John A. McCaul and not Col. McCaul, by a very small majority, which would not then have been given but for the fact that he had for a long time been chairmau of the Republican commit tee, whi.h induced a number of colored people to vote for him, doubtless under the impressiou tbat he was still a Republican. Glorious little Roanoke ia preparing to teach Democracy a lesson next fall, and in spite of the squirming of many Democrats she will plant her heel again upon the ty rant's neck. .—...

The Adventures of a Memory String For years, nothing has delighted the little glrli of the country more than the possession of i "memory string." Each "strove 'to see nbid , could succeed in securing tho greatest numbei of buttons of variegated hue. Frequently lit tle odd matters were mixed in wilh them, ai they were received from the hands of friends, This morning one of these memory strings figured rather conspicuously in our Polici Justice Court. We desire to hold up to public scorn and in dignation one of the actors in this case, who I has proven himself more brute than man, and , who should receive such condemnation from this community as will drive him from among respectable people with whom there can be no t possible congeniality. A creature, known by the name of L, Levy, some time ago employed in his store a little girl named Willie Mayo, fifteen or si.iteen years old, whose face and ap ■ pearanco indicates her to be honost and re spectable, although pour. I During her stay with him, he gave her a small brass breastpin, valued by him at fifty oents, which she placed among her buttons on her memory string, and where he must have seen it every hour in tho day. Deciding to leave him, she demanded her pay, the balance due for her services, which she claimed to be i $2 GO. lie refnsedjto pay her, when she had a warraut issued for the amount, which was tried before Jußtice White. He gave a judg ment against this heartless wretch upon his own admission that it was justly due her. Not . satisfied with attempting to withhold the mo ney from this poor girl, he demanded the re -1 turn ofthe breastpin which he had given her ; the demand was immediately complied with, whereupon, he swore out a warrant for her arrest, charging her with having stolen the pin. The case was called this morning before Jus tice White, who upon eliciting the fact., as we have stated them, immediately discharged the blushing girl, and administered a withering rebuke to the horrid creature; regretting that te was not able to punish him as ho deserved. Justico White declared that this oase was one of more malignity than any which had ever presented itself before him. Considerable feel ing was created against Mr L. Levy among the bystanders ; and if they had have administered a genteel threshing on bis bare back, it would have been no more than the foul tiend deserv ed. Go away from a God-fearing people, you heartless, cruel, malignant, soulless wretch, and disgrace not this community longer with your foul presence. Mr. VV. G. Freeman —If it is possible for us to secure tho evidence upon which we stated tbat this gentleman was a Republican, in time for our issue of this afternoon, we shall publish it; if not, we will have to defer it until to-morrow. We had, and this morning the assurance was repeated, that Mr. Freeman had visited in a carriage a reliable gentleman of tbe city, and who is a member elect of the City Council, and requested him to urge the publication of Just what we did say. We have also been informed that a commit tee of Republicans had waited upon Mr. Free man, to whom he declared his political senti ments to be those of a Republican, at the same time indignantly spurning the idea that he was a Democrat or Conservative. If these statements are true, and he authorized tho pub lication of the cards of this morning, which we do not doubt, we don't think either party need be quarreling as to which party be belongs, since these statements, so contradictory, con vinces us that he is unreliable and not entitled to the confidence of either party. We have jast been informed" by one ofthe gentlemen referred to, that he will furnish us, in writing, for to-morrow, all tho proofs neces sary in regard to Mr. Freeman's declaration, as well as other matters not now before the pub lic. If people will persist in attempting to de ceive the public, we shall nut hesitate to ex pose their tricks, whenever we deom it neces sary to vindicate ourselves. The Ceremonies Yesterday.—Our National Memorial Day, generally and sacred ly observed throughout the land, dawned auspiciously over the beautiful city of Rich mond. At an early hour the gates ot the -T__ tional Cemetery opened thair white arms of welcome to the multitude who thronged thith er, bearing flowers to adorn the graves of our heroic dead. The floral decorations adorning tho entrance leading into the grounds, were tastefully disposed, the wreaths fitfully sway ing in the breeze as if threatening to shower the earth with crowns. Every grave received its offering of love, many of them blossoming from head to foot, and the work of decoration proceeded with a quiet and respectful tender ness more impressivo than words can convey. The address by the Rev. A. R. Miller was well received, abounding with patriotic and chris tian sentimenis, and delivered in a clear and forcible stylo. The address was prefaced by the "Battie Hymn of tho Republic," and should havo been followed by tbe grand old UDion doxology, "Star Spangled Bannor," but a 3udden shower dissipated the majority of the crowd rathm- unceremoniously and left the notes of "Our National Flag" floating on the breeze. Ain't You Ashamed?—Tho State Journal is kept ijuite busy fighting three daily Democratic papers, and watching to prevent them from taking nigh cuts on us when every thing goes fair; but when "whoppers" are told on us, we can't help from askin_, "Ain't you ashamed?" Just look at that great big Enquirer this morning, when it says, "The Statu Jodknal says there wero 4,000 persons present at the lowest estimate," in speaking of the Republican mass meeting held on Gamble's Hill day before yesterday. We didn't say any such thing. Mr. Peterson, secretary of the meeting, said so. Now, why couldn't you do the fair thing and tell the truth ? The Democrats keep us busy correcting their stories, wbich is unpro fitable aud unpleasant. If you don't stop, we are going to leave you to the public, with whom after awhile, you will become unreliable. Compliment to the Excursionists.— We see it announced by tbo morning papers that a complimentary entertainment has been tendered the editorial excursionists by certain members of the press and soveral ot our prom inent business men ; and by them accepted.— While tbe gentlemen who may be engaged in these polite attentions deserve the praise of tbe community, we regret the want ot attantion shown them by our municipal officials. The policy of neglect is a bad and injurious one, which cannot escape the notice of the party.— It is too pointed, too prominent, for while every other placo through which thoy have passed has cheerfully shown them attention, Richmond alone declines. In the midst of political excitement we should not have over looked the public good. The blind folly of our officials will, in a de gree, be compensated for, we hope, by the individual attentions they will receive on their return. WcitSE Than Provoking.— We are at work by G o'clock every morning, searching for something to please our readers, and con tinue until . o'clock in the evening. After hav ing read the JorasAi. from bottom to top a half dozen times, we stroll around to get a little fresh air and relief from reading newspapers. At such an hour, to have a newsboy insist upon our buying one of our own papers, is more than our nature can stand. We are tiredof it, and would be glad to be relieved ofthe annoy ance. There, now ! Don't any of you fellows §o and say tbat it is annoying to any body to aye the Journal offered them. This would bo naughty.
