Topographically it isasurprise tons. We
had always supposed it tolerably level,
while ils up-aud-downatheness fully equals
that of Albany. Hut though still carrying
Ihe scars of that terrible conflagration in
1865, when it was fired by the ret real ing'
Southern troops, it is a beautiful city. It
was modeled alter Rome—a good ways
after—in the matter of hills; and its Capi
tol was modeled after the famed Pantheon
at Athens. 'Tis an old building, and note
worthy for its plainness, as we discover alter
interviewing (Jovei nor Walker. This we do
in a body, because His Excellency was a
New Yorker originally, and we feel a. trifle
proud Over the fact that a Now Yorker is
Chief Executive of the Old Dominion.
Governor Walker is a man of remarkably
line physique, wearing a grand head on
goodly shoulders, and carrying himself
right royally. His gray hairs, belie his
age, for he is 3-et a young man. under forty.
Ile receives us cordially, welcomes us to
his adopted Stale, and personally shows us
some parts of the Capitol. Thai portion
which fell a few months ago is now occu
pied as the Executive Chamber. It was a
court-room at the time of the accident. The
G«Vemor tells how it happened, and we
realize more fully than from reading the
dispatches, what must have been the awful
terror of the scene. Sixty-three persons
met their death, most of win mi il is sup
posed were suffocated.
In the Hall of Delegalis, which has in
time long gene resounded with the elo
quence of our country's most famous ora
tors —and which is a awitmctod, miserably
furnished apartment—the thing most curi
ous is the Speaker's chair,' ■ straight
backed all'air, presented by the English
Douse of Lords to the Provincial Govern
ment, and a relic worth preserving. Of
course we sat down in it, but though Jel
fi'i'son, aud a goodly number of oilier able
men, have done likewise, we iolt not a bit
the wiser on gelling up.
The monument to Washington, within
the Capitol grounds, deserves a dozen de
scriptive paragraphs, and sometime we will
give them. Lack of space now forbids it.
It hasn't height to speak of--why, if you
would memorialize a man in marble or
bronze, should you seek to pierce (he sky
with your memorializing?—but it has
spirit and suggestrvenesa, ami means much.
liegun two or three decades ago, it was not
completed until siirce the war, and in its

ancient edifice which is Virginia's gmcru

White nnd Black Urltloerucy.
It lms ever been thought by the Democ
racy a proof of genius for the intricacies of
politics and the art of
when those engaged in politics have shown
skill in making money out of (lie business
of caring fur the public intestate. VV'bo
has ever thought of declaring Tweed and
his constituents incapable of self-govern
nicnt because the debt of New York. under
Ins management, is raised by s"is,000,0(1(1 in
•JO months '.' All these things, when dune
by white Democrats, are proof of their high
capacity, and even genius, for politics. It
is amusing, therefore, to lead in a journal
so deeply Democratic as the Now York
Journal of Commerce ;\n arraignment of
the South Carolina colored Legislature, for
following at a respectable distance behind
the Tammany thieves and stealing tens
were the latter have stolen thousands.
The Democracy of New- York, who have
rejoiced in the vindication of (lie dignity of
Ihe people which was afforded by the spec
tacle of a New York councilman smoking
:iO-corrt corporation cigars, see it in quite a
different light when a colored legislator
smokes a 50-cerit cigar under the head ul'
contingent expenses, and exudes his saliva
into a gilt-edged and crimson-tipped porce
lain spittoon. They are astounded to learn
that a ring of carpet-baggers and negroes
in the South Carolina Logislature have had
the audacity in buying $1,000,000 worth of
land, for sale to actual settlers in small
quantities for cultivation, to pay every
seller of the land twice his price, on condi
tion that he would make out tlie deed for
seven times the price, su that the ring
might steal the difference. These tricks,
.so familiar to white legislators, seem really
to have been swiftly acquired by their col
ored brethren in South Carolina. One
might almost infer, from the ease with
which they are learned, that nut a few of
fhem had Democratic Mood in then" veins;—

The Labor Reform irleetiim in Mew Haven..
Slllipillli) lor Hi,' M ril.ii,.; I'rhllcrs.
Keic Haven, Conn., July "I.—'l'lii.s city is
considerably excited te-mgbi over the La
bor Reform movement. A (urge meeting
was held on the given, attended by deputa
tions from every labor organization in tlie
city. A large procession marched into the
park headed by a liainl oi' music, anil
speeches were made from tin- steps ul' the
State House. Tho scene ivas illuminated
hy torchlights, and the enthusiasm ul' the
crowd ran high.
The cause of the excitement originated
anion"; the Printers'lUnion three,weeks ago,
when the ExccutivcConuiiiU.ee of the 1,111011
were all arrested, charged with ai conspiracy
against the proprietors of Tin Journal and
Courier. The prisoners iinv dismissed on
bail, and are to lie tried .soon. The speeches
to-night were remarkable for their boldness,
several officials in high places lieing severely
taken to task. Among the speakers was
one of the editors of The Palladium, and
the meeting was presided over by Mr. <iro
gan, a very prominent manjn the Reform
movement. Resolutions were adopted tend
ering aid and sympathy of all the working
men to those whose rights they allege have
bsen taken from them, and committees weie
appointed to effect co-operative organiaa
tions in at' the branches nf labor. The
meeting broke up with three cheers for the
cause of Labor Reform.

Upon Planters.
Augusta, Ga., July B.—On Saturday last
twenty-live aimed negroes went to the plan
tation of Angus Red, in Barnwell county,
South Carolina, aboul twelve miles below
Augusta, on the Savannah river. Arriving
at Ked's resilience, the party fired a volley
into it, killing Thus. A. \ AtV!K . all( ( seriously
wounding Red and his wife ami mother.
After disarming Red, the negroes returned
to Paul .). flan mils plantation, where a
• deputy sheriff attempted to arrest them,
but without success, us they refused lo
disarm. Tlie negroes, however, promised
to go to Aiken and stand an investigation.
One of the parties implicated was arrested
here this evening. His version i that Red
and Ixiwe attempted lo chastise a negro for
• stealing limn the premises of the former;
that the negro escaped from them and re
turned with an armed band, who did the
shooting by way of retaliation. The affair
causes uneasiness and atom. The party
arrested in this city represents himself as a
school teacher, and s iys he was on his way
to Aiken to deliver himself up to the au
thorities.
1.l II.DINC IP THE [.ADOS' HfaDS.
The fashion of pyramidal, castellated or
prefer to work upon a pate as bald as that
of a cool. It is the practice with many
ladies lo contract with a linn by ihe twelve
month for the inspection and decoration of
their polls. And while the female head is
thus exhibiting a relapse inlo the cauliflow
er piiiiMl.-lhc male sconce is being denuded
of its hirsute possessions by a custom for
which it is dillicult to find a precedent.
Our young men are shorn like com ids or
prize-lighters. They look often as if they
had only just recovered from an attack of
brain-fever, or from serving out a term of
hard labor at IVntonville. There may be
something to be said for this practice. It
is perhaps more necessary that gentlemen
should have their heads cool than ladies.
We have no Cavaliers amongst us, we are
a'l Crophcails. In the days of Charles 11.
the ladies wore a peculiar kind of a curl
called a "heart-breaker." In our time we
have the RCX plaiting a similar piece of fasci
nation which hangs over or behind the
shoulder in the graceful form of a pig-tail,
and this, we believe, is known in certain
circles as a "follow-ine-lads." Hut in the
restoration era the men were as proud of
their hair as of their politics, and quits as
vain of its length and abundance as the
women. Pools, novelists, and dramatists
have rung innumerable changes on the lock
of hair, but now-a-davs, unless a gentle
man saves some from a barber, or permits
a patch to grow lor the purpose, he would
find it difficult to present a lady with any
thing to speak of as hair relic. On the
other hantl, a feminine favor of the kind
must be regarded, lo say the least of it,
with suspicion. -English Papa:
