In the history of this country is it not the strangest fact that the constitutional opinions of the leaders of the Democratic party in the .South underwent, in the course of a few years, an entire change, from the wildest latitudinarianism to the most rigid, strict construction ? In view of recent developments and the "New Departure," it may not be uninter esting to the reader to notice the contrast between the former views of the "nulli flers," of the State of South Carolina, anil their State Rights doctrines at a subsequent period. From a reply to a certain series of "rad ical essays," published in the State of Gooi - gia, in 1821, is the following extract ascribed to the pen of Mr. M'Duffee, of South Car olina: "What security, then, did the convention, or In other words, the people of the I Tnited States pro vide to restrain their functionaries from usurping powers not delegated, and from abusing: those with which they are really Invested ? The con stitution will tell you that it is Ihe real security they have provided. "It is the responsibility of the officers of the Oeneral Government, not to the State uuilic.ii Ues, but to themselves, the people. This, ami this only, is the great conservative principle, which lies at the foundation of all. our political institutions, and sustains the great and glorious fabric of our liberty. This groat truth ought to be kept in constant and lively remembrance by every American. "The States, as political bodies, have no origi nal, inherent rights. That they have such rights, is a false, dangerous and anti-republican assump tion, which lurks at the bottom of all the reason ings In favor of State-rights." This "New Departure" is not the only instance of a total revolution of opinion in the history of our public men, but there is a difference in this: that while in the past the change has been gradual, and brought about by successive steps, this la ter movement of a portion of the Democrat ic party has caused surprise and consterna tion, in their own ranks, aud virtually ac knowledges to the whole world either one of two things : that they have been insin cere in their professions and principles in the past, or are so now. With what a sense of deep humiliation must they regard their past record or their present course! Their object is too evident—their own greed and ambition has betrayed them. Hunger for office, with a determination to rule or ruin, has led them to commit this step,'which of all others exhibits their weak ness. EDUCATION OF THE COLORED RACE. No sign is more cheering than the efforts to secure a.better education for the colored people of this country. In the South, since their emancipation, this unjustly-treated people have shown a most commendable desire to improve their minds by attending schools, in which they might enjoy some of the blessings to be derived from mental training. Through the aid of the Freedman's Bu reau, the assistance of benevolent associa tions in the Northern States, the Peabody fund, and other agencies, much has been done in their behalf, and yet much remains to do. We have read with much interest the ac count of the closing exercises in the Univer sity of Atlanta and the report of the board of visitors appointed by the authority of the State. Georgia has conferred a grant of, eight thousand dollars a year upon this in stitution, and we may truly say that the grant reflects credit upon the Legislature that made it. The report of the board of visitors is a strong testimonial as to the capability of the black race for literary culture. The members of the visiting board are nearly all native Southerners; they are among the leading minds of the State, and most of them are identified with the Dem ocratic party. Ex-Govemar Brown is well known as Oovernor of Georgia during the war. Judge Douglass is the present judge of the Superior court. Mr. Hemphill is publisher of the Constitution, the most in fluential Democratic paper in the State. — Mr. Scruggs is editor of the Atlanta Netc Bra. Judge Dunning is postmaster of At lanta and State Senator. The true democratic doctrine is not to trample down any race, however humble, but by public education and by just laws to try to elevate all classes and conditions of men. _ NATIONAL BUREAU OF EMIGRATION. The National Bureau of Emigration met yesterday in New York city to perfect their organization and transact general bu siness. The meeting was very harmonious, and important action taken to secure the cooperation of all parlies interested in the settlement of the South and West. It is pro posed by this united action to expedite the movement of parties wishing to migrate, and to render possible the settlement of all par ties who may desire it in large communi ties. Gen. J. D. Imboden and Col. Edward Daniels represent the State of Virginia in the Board of Directors, and were present at the meeting. More About Jeff. Davis. —Demo- cratic journals are stoutly averring tliat Jeff. Davis, in his mad talk throughout the South, speaks only for himself, and repre sents no extensive Southern sentiment. The ovations given him, and the applause which greeted his remarks tell a different story—besides, here is what a prominent Southerner, writing to the Chattanooga Times, says about it: "We of the South cannot allow ourselves to be lectured by any one who I* unable to conceive, even in the slightest degree, the feeling of deep grief wbich fills the souls of those who have fought for the right, and have been overpowered by what they conscientiously anil religiously be lieve to be wrong. JenVrson Davis still has the love and admiral tun, as well as the confidence of every true Southerner, and it will probably be well for the Times In the future to treat' thf- in mind." At a celebration in Nelson county, given by one of the public schools, a dinner was given the guests sufficient to feed between live and six hundred persons. Oats are selling in Alexandria at 05; corn at 7S ; and wheat at 81 10 VIRGINIA NEW?, BVUSNKD to Skrvick. —An escaped convict from the penitentiary was yesterday on trial before the Corporation court on the charge of burglary. 11 is name is Win. 11. Taylor alias "Shad," and he is known to the police as one of the most cunning and daring thieves in the city. He had, we are told, at the time of his escape, three years longer to serve in the penitentiary, and will get an additional term of live years liir escaping. Total term of imprisonment eight years, which will, in all human proba bility, never expire, .as he now appears to lie almost in the last stages of consumption, and is very much emaciated, lie will be rearrested as soon as his term of Imprison ment "t j ft i' expires, and be returned to the penitentiary.— Norfolk Virginian. Our esteemed townsman, W, 11. Tappey, Esq., of the firm of Tappey, Lumsden &■ Co., was on board the steamer Red (.'loud when she caught on lire on the Red river, last week. 'Ihe passengers all escaped un hurt and saved their baggage, but the steamer was burned to the water's edge. The passengers, among whom were a num ber of ladies, encamped on the shore for several days, until relieved by a passing steamer en route for New Orleans.— I'eters bunj Index. On Friday last the child of Alexander Ford, living near Fancy Hill, fell into a tub of water, and was drowned. Its mother was called out by some one to kill a snake, and while absent, the child, which was about ten months old, crawled out and climbed up on a tub and falling over head foremost, was past resuscitation when found by the mother. This case should be a warning, as about many houses there are facilities for just such accidents to little ones, and wo wonder such occurrences are not more frequent.— Lexington Ouzelte. Riot at Foktuess Monroe. —We learn that on the Fourth a large crowd of negroes from Hampton, numbering about 250j assaulted some of the members of the Arlington Base-Hall club. The boys being overpowered by numbers, the guard was called out, when a pitched battle ensued between them and the negroes, the latter using stone, and the former bayonets and the butts of their guns, being forbidden to lire on the negroes. The latter were finally driven off, but not until one of the members of the Arlington, Mr. Thomas White, was severely hurt by being struck in the breast with a stone. — Norfolk Virginian. Mrs. John Allmand, the wife of one of our former townsmen, went to Japan seve ral years ago —going first to Kurope—and returned via Pacific railroad to New York. Last Saturday the steamship Henry Chaun cey sailed from New York. Mrs. Allmand was a passenger on the ('hauncey, and is on her way to Japan to rejoin her husband in that distant land. Mrs. Allmand is said to be the first lady in America that has gone round the world by steam.— Norfolk Jour nal. Hamilton rk Rawdon's humbug Indian show recently gave an exhibition at Lees* burg. After the performance the Indians all got drunk, and engaged in a genera! light. The chief of the tribe was arrested and taken to jail. He was visited next day by his medicine man, who, after pay ing expenses, took charge of him and de parted elsewhere to swindle those who love to see the Red Man of the forest. Peaches. —This delicious fruit is very abundant this season, and the fruit growers and shippers are reaping a largo harvest by sending them to thu Northern markets. Every steamer which leaves our port car ries a large quantity, for which good prices are obtained. The price in our own market is still too high for them to come into very general use. — Norfolk Virginian. The Chatham Tribune has an ably writ ten and scathing article in answer to a writer, signing himself "Argus," in the Richmond Whig. The article is in defence of the public schools of that county, which have been assailed by "Ai-gus." Wo aro glad "our pets" have found so able cham pions in tliat section. The attempt of a lady of Pittsylvania to frighten her son, came near being attended with fatal results. She went out to meet him, on his return from a neighbor's, and disposing her dress so as to look like a ghost, he struck her a severe blow with a heavy stick, felling her to the ground and severely injuring her. - A few nights since, as we lean) from the Roanoke Times, the stable of Mr. Jacob M. Trout was forcibly entered by some scoundrel or scoundrels and one of his horses shot, 'i'he horse was not killed, and the perpetrator returned a night or two afterwards and killed .'mother horse with ait axe. The Charlottesville Intelligencer says it should excite a feeling of shame amongst the .Southern people that they should have divided their patronage with Northern col leges, instead of giving all.to the University. The desire to build up one's own institu tions is laudable, but we must not expect everybody to see alike. The coroner's jury have returned a ver dict that Silas Johnson, the colored man who was drowned several days since at Al exandria, came to his death by being push ed Or thrown overboard by James Novvells and James R. Jefferson, by the procure ment of James MeOracken. The two for mer are in jail; the latter on bail. Some of the colored hands engaged on the Lynchburg and Danville road ceased work because they were ordered not to talk while at work. If they were women we could understand it, but can't see it iv men. A colored boy in Alexandria went to the house of a gentleman and told his family lie had sent him for his coat; it whs given him, when ho pawned it to a junk dealer, where it was afterwards Ibnnd. A writer in the Charlottesville Intelli gencer is discussing the proper way to spell whiskey. Many people know tie smell and taste of it, and are more intej-ested in that than they are how to spell it. Mr. George W. Fuller, of Staunton, was attacked and seriously injured hy a fero cious hull dog, on Friday last. He was bitten through both hands, and the flesh torn considerably on both anus and legs. The Norfolk Virguitan says that the Rev. O. S. Barton, rector of Christ church in that city, has received an invitation to go to Galveston Ui take a church there. The young folks of Chatham, Pittsylva nia county, enjoyed a lively dance last week. The peoplo ot that section know how to enjoy themselves when they try. Charlottesville is decidedly dull since the closing exercises of the University. A daily paper there, just now, has a hard time of it in the matter of items of interest. A musical convention will be held at Shockoe church, in Pittsylvania, on the Ist, 2nd, and llrd of August. It will be con cluded with a grand concert. A colored woman received n sun-stroke in Alexandria, Sunday last, Her recovery is ascribed to the immediate attention of friends. Rev. George T. Wihner, of the Episco pal church, will spend the summer at Pitt sylvania court-house. The total debt of the University of Vir ginia at date is $S2,!li:t.

The trial of Salmon, charged with the murder of his mother in Albemarle, has been postponed until fall. Northern men, who have purchased pro fierty in or near Gordonsville, are said to M pleased with their situation. A stray squirrel has been found al the of fice of the Alexandria Sla inlaid and Saili nel. Wonder if the animal is a icibl one. During the month of June only ten mar riage licenses were issued by the clerk of the corporation court of Alexandria. Several Richmond lawyers are in Alex andria attending Judge Underwood's court now in session there. Sumac is said to be in great demand in Petersburg. So it is here. —— m Hon. James H. Platt, Jr.—Our honored representative in Congress arrived in this city by the Petersburg train on Monday evening, to par* the national holi day with his friends in this city. We un derstand that he was in Washington last week, using his influence to procure work for the navy-yard. We are fortunate in being represented by an earnest, active worker for the interest of this district. All classes of our citizens seem to have the watchful eye of Colonel Platt lor their ad vantage. ()ur truckers arc particularly in debted to him for the protection on pota toes, which has resulted in keeping the Dermuda potatoes out of the market this year, and advanced the price of those of our own growing. We take pleasure in wel coming him to our city, and hope his efforts in behalf of work for the vnrd nitty prove successful.— Norfolk Day hook. m Tekkiblk Railroad Accident.— The passenger train on the Nashville and Northwestern railroad, which left Nashville on the 3d instant, met with an accident at Harpelle river, about four miles from that city. After the locomotive and baggage car had crossed the bridge over the river, the bridge gave way, and the remainder fell into the stream. Fifteen persons, as far as is known at present, were killed, and twen ty-three wounded. The killed are John Marshall, Nashville; John Bamberger, Clarksville; Charles Campbell, wife and child, Edgefield; Mrs. William Yeatman and Mrs. Thomas Dunn, of Kingston Springs; Mr. Pendergast and Mr. Wright, of White Bluff; J. (.'. llrackettand brother William, and Wiley Howard, of Marshall county. None of the wounded were mortally hurt. The dead and wounded wore carried to Nashville. The accident was the result of the weakness of the bridge. The train was running slowly. LOCAL MATTERS. MS . 'The Daily Stale Journal will he ninileil to persons leaving the cily for the snnuner at rn-'Tv cents per month. *>@~City Subscribers—Person* wishing the State Jocrkai. left early and regularly at their (places of business, or residence*, by responsible carriers, will please leave their orders with John ston Si Ski.iie.n-, Newsdealers, !»ls Main Street, and at the News Depot of W. A. Enw.vßus, 22s East Broad Street. **>, To the Villi Council — Arc the I'acemciils of Richmond for Ihe Use of the Citizens or for Vehicles ? —Citizens have rights as well as baby-carriages. Being one of the first, and the avowed enemy of the latter as at present controlled, we ask the City Council tf there is not already a law, to make one as early as pof S.ble, to govern the running of these trams, so as lo prevent the crip pling of somebody's baby, or the thrashing of some impudent nurse, at a cost of ten or twenty dollars to the one who does it. People cannot and will not submit to be ing driven front the pavement by these ra- Eidly increasing nuisances, nnd then abused y impudent negroes and white women, be cause they didn't break their necks to hur ry out of the way. They are complained of every day by citizens who have other matters to attend to besides zig-zagging along our streets to get. out of their way. If one asks to be spared the pains of hurry ing from their front, he or she is assailed by abuse from the muses, w Inch must be sub mitted to, or a choice of being dragged be fore Justice White. We beg the City Council to pass a law confining these carriages to one side or the other of the pavement, or to the middle, if preferred, or the whole of it if necessary ; but let the people know that carriages hare riglds which they are bound to respect. Not satisfied with part of the sidewalk, they are frequently seen three and four abreast, occupying the whole of it, much to the disgust of everybody who are thereby driven into the streets. AYe propose, if nothing else will do, that every business man in tlie city buy one of these nuisances, (it is not necessary to have the baby in it,) and push it along the pave ment ahead of him. He will then be shown some respect by the others, and everybody be compelled to give him the pavement. We predict Hint unless this provoking nui sance is not abated, that somebody's darling is going to get hurt, not intention ally, but in the following manner; Some body's shin will get bruised, or their toes mashed, by being run over or against by one of them, when they will attempt to ex postulate with the ladi/ conductor, where upon somebody will get such an abuse, as will induce somebody to administer a well deserved thrashing to the aforesaid con ductor. While the skirmish is going on, the little darling in the carriage may be up set, trampled upon, and crippled for life. To mothers, who love their little inno cents, we would appeal in time to save them from anxiety, and warn them that their carriages and nurses are growing more rapidly in numbers and impudence than our city limits will stand, and they had better come together, if necessary, and regulate their running and conduct, or somebody will get hurt, then somebody will say some body else was a cruel wretch. When a class of colored people, like many we meet every day iv the city, learn to respect the rights of the public and its citizens, they may then claim that theirs shall be respected; but until they learn this important lesson, we are not surprised that white people feel unkindly towards many of them. A Hiatal Mother on Adams Street. — Some time ago we called attention to a wo man in this city who has become notorious fur the cruel manner she whips her children, and hoped our notice would attract suffi cient attention from her to correct her bru tal conduct. She is a resident of Adams street, between Leigh and Jackson, and, by her inhuman conduct, keeps the neigh borhood constantly annoyed and excited. Last night, while passing the neighborhood, the groans and cries of her child, as she tortured him, attracted the attention of passers-by, until quite an excited crowd gathered to listen to the appeals of the scourged. All pleadings tell upon the listless ears of the fiend, who nev er ceased her lashing until -exhausted. We call the attention of the police to this woman and her conduct, and ask them to interfere in behalf of the little boy. Stan and Hone Drowned at Rocketts, — About six oVlock yesterday afternoon, a worthy and industrious colored man, who has been employed for a number of years by Robert Kerse, Esq., drove a horse attached to a cart into the edge of the river, near the sugar refinery, to water him. The horse took fright and suddenly plunged into the channel of the river, where he was drown ed. The colored mini attempted to save the horse by jumping on his back but be coming entangled in, the harness, or by oth er means, he, too, was drowned. At the time of writing this, neither the body of man or horse has been found. He was a great favorite with all who knew him, standing high as a man of worth and integri ty. His sudden death is deplored by none more than l*y Mr. Kerse, who knew him well, and to whom he was invaluable. We have been unable to learn the name of the drowned man. ay— — Fair Play. —The Amen News, claiming an admiration for wearing this bright jewel, we are glad to see it shining so brightly in the following from its yesterday's issue. Its brightness could be made more brilliant by the statement that neither Mr, or Mrs. Chahoon are in any way related or connect ed with Mr. Dana, of the New York Sun. She is only an acquaintance, while he is a stranger to Mr. Dana. YY c make this statement to correct the one heretofore made, several times by the Nevis, that Mrs. Chahoon was a relation of Mr. Dana: Chahoon's Case.—ln commenting a few days since upon an editorial in the New York Sun, under this head, we intimated, in pretty strone terms, that tlie writer was a relative or connec tion ot Chahoon. I ;Now, we are as fond of .jewels as any lady iv the land, and amongst them we consider fair play the. most brilliant and much to be deserved, and always wear it proudly upon our bosom. In that spirit, then, we will state, upon the author- Ity of Andrew Washburn, Esq., and Colonel 1). B. Parker, that Chahoon is neither a connection nor relative of the writer of the article in ques tion, and that he has no acquaintance with him. Reconsidered, —Last Sunday night, De tectives Wren and Dabney arrested Lillie Bennett and Bettie Anderson, upon the charge of having stolen a gold watch and £'2"> in currency from Joseph Roberts. The case was tried by r Justice White on Tuesday, who sentenced Bettie Anderson to jail for three months as the thief, and Lizzie Griffin for the same length of time for having received the watch, knowing it to he stolen. A new trial having been granted, the case was heard again this morning by Jus tice White who was unable to decide as to the guilty parties from the introduction of new testimony ; whereupon he discharged ; the whole party from custody. .«. Henrico Count// Court. —This court was engaged to-day in the trial of Robert H. Allen, who is charged with aiding and en couraging the prize-fight that took place in the county some weeks since. Colonel I. 11. Shields appeared as counsel for Allen. This trial was in progress when our re porter left the court-room. Mr. Berne, bondsman for Charles Dough erty, came into court and surrendered him. There being no other security offered, he was remanded to jail. The cause of Mr. Berne so doing, we understand, is that he is about to leave the city ; therefore he could not be responsible any longer. P. S.—Since writing the above, we learn that Allen has been adjudged guilty, and sentenced to pay a tine of i:i<)o and cost, which will amount to about $ 10, making a total of $:;!<>. _ Sensible Hied. —Near New Bridge, a short distance below the city, live a family who are the owners of a remarkably sensi ble mocking bird. This bird will leave hone every morning, wandering through the woods, but returns in the evening as regularly as the night comes. It has a nest in the yard, in which are three or four young ones, and it will allow the family to teed it and them from the hand. A short distance off is a school-house, and this bird will liy into the room and perch itself on the shoulders of the children, and remain with them sometime. It is perfectly tame, and is of course highly valued by the family in which it claims to lie a part. Melted. —A man just passed our office who was so faUthat part ol' him hail melted. We ran to the door, but failed to discover what had become of him. Upon close ex amination, we are satisfied he was making for Cerot's cooling establishment, but melt ed mi the lop step. A small grease spot and a thirty-live cent straw hat, purchased from our friend Haase across the street, is all that was left of him. The relics can be obtained on application at this office. Religious. —Rev. Dr. W. Berg, lately front Memphis, has accepted it call from the congregation "Kencseth Israel" of this city. The reverend gentleman will be in stalled as minister of this congregation, at their place of worship in Mayo street, to morrow at C:3O o'clock P. M. Rev. Dr. Bettelheim will deliver the inaugural ser mon in German for the occasion. Republican Matting. —The Republicans of Jefferson ward will meet at Metropolitan Hall Tuesday, the 11 th instant, lor the purpose of electing officers for the next ensuing six months. It is essential that all interested in the welfare of the party should attend, in order to have a fair repre sentation and a true expression of the ward. m Fighting on the Capitol Square. —Mary Brown and her mother (both colored) were arrested yesterday afternoon by officer Cordkyof the Capitol force, for engaging in a light on the Square.

Dr. Sampson's Lecture. —It gives us pleasure to make mention of the lecture delivered last night by Dr. Sampson in the Baptist chinch. We were pleased to see so many of our citizens out. The lecture was listened to with marked attention by both old and young. Ilk description was pleasant and instructive. The Opening was a description of the length and breadth of Palestine —its mountains, rocks, rivers, lakes, animals, cattle, inhabitants, customs, and products. He gave an account of the water, which delighted the boys, as the Doctor gave them some good instructions in swimming, and urged them to try the lesson the next time they went in bathing. The most interesting part of the lecture was the explanation of the expression iv the bible ol the "land of milk and honey." The entertainment was closed by an exhi bition and explanation of the garments spoken of in the bible. The garment, or loose shirt, was of singular cut; the girdle, male over-coat or shawl, together with the sandels worn by the Turks and Jews in the days of John the Baptist, were of novel character. To-night, the doctor will lec ture on "Jeruselani," and exhibit the char acter of robes worn by the Lord Jesus, with many other things which will be of great interest to the bible reader. Sewing Machines. —We had always been taught to think that the best and most beau tiful sewing machine, was the one which we had been accustomed to seeing in boy-hood days dressed in a neat calico, with rosy cheeks and laughing eyes. We were guilty once of the absurdity of falling in love with such a machine, and would have taken it home with us but for an objection raised by the old folks, who hail something to do with the moving of the machine from the home of its birth. Our mind has under gone a change. Harding has on exhibition and for sale the Howe sewing-machine, which, while it may not be altogether so handsome as the one above mentioned, still is very beauti ful, and with a little assistance will out work the blushing damsel, and at much less expense. Call and see this wonderful exhibition on the corner of Ninth and Hull streets, Manchester. At a regular meeting of Stuart Lodge, No. HI, 1. 0. 0. F., the following officers were installed : N. G., Mr. T. Davidson ; V. li., John S. Owens ; secretary, Joseph B. Vaden ; treasurer, Michael Stine. A committee of arrangements were appointed to make arrangements to celebrate the first anniversary ol Stuart Lodge on the 2d of August. High View has been selected as the place. We have been informed that Grand Sire Stuart is expected to be with the Lodge on that day. Stuart Ixnlge can do things right, and if all is in good trim on that day, we may expect a grand time. Supper. —We are informed that great preparations are being made by Manches ter Council, Friends of Temperance, for a supper next Tuesday night. We hope a Cxi time will be had. The Richmond dges are to be invited. The little son of Mr. A.lkinson, who had his leg broken by the kick of a mule, had his leg rebroken again last Sunday, by his crutch slipping from under him.

MAKIN'i; WIXTKII Bl t'THK.-One oi our limners says The thili/as.: Firmer, manages to have all his cows fresh in the lull, instead of the spring. Being then fresh, and iv their best condition, which is Kept up by judicious feeding ef a mixture of two quarts of bran and two oi' Indian meal, twice a day, to each cow, combined with Yellow Olobe mangels, they yield v good return of butter when it: is at the highest figures, and turn nut ol the stable in the spring in line condition. When they would otherwise naturally fall off in then yield, the succulent grasses come in and keep them fully up, and often with tin in creased How of milk. The dairyman.thinks, by such a plafl, he gets the better of our cold and changeable winter weather, nnd makes the most money nut ol his dairy in the twelve months. His cows in the spring look (hie, with sleek coats. This is probably partly owing also lo the daily use of tlie card, and access, in a well-sheltered ami well-bedded barn-yard, to plenty of water. Dnv Lakth VOH Bi:iii>inii.—R. H id dings, of Illinois, saves the manure, and adds to the comfort of his stock by using dry earth iv the stables. To do this he fills a stall or large bin in his stable during dry weather, with pulverized clay, road scrap ings, or common soil. With this he covers the floor of each stall three inches deep, and then places the litter 1,,r Ihe animals' bed ding on it; by this means all tho mine will be absorbed, and its wealth of nitrogen saved, and such is the absorbing power of dried earth, that one three inch flooring will not be so thoroughly saturated in a long time its to require replacing, lie says his ex periment required but one bin of pulverized earth to absorb the urine of ten or fwclw cattle during the stabling season ; and that two men with a team tilled the bin in one day. One ton of the saturated earth is worth more than the same weight of even fresh-saved dung. The aggregate amount of plant food thus saved from the stalls is fully double, and in much better condition for use.
