REPUBLICAN FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
The review of the management of the
national finances, published recently in the
New York Tribune, is admirably designed
to inspire with pride and gratification every
patriotic citizen of the Republic. It is a
noble exemplification of the resources of
the country, as well as an eloquent testi
monial to the general ability with which
tho great financial system of the nation has
been handled. Friends of the Republican
administration of the government may well
be proud of such an exhibit, showing, as it
does, a great reduction irr the national debt,
year by year, as well as a gradual amelio
ration in the burdens of taxation, which
the long and costly war of the slave-hold"
ers' rebellion imposed upon the people.
We should have been glad to have seen
more vigor infused into some details of the
management of the Treasury, aud especial
ly more decisive measures looking toward a
speedy return of specie payments. Such
return was long ago possible, and though it
may be claimed that the worst is over, we
must regret the prolonged existence of our
present system of floating an immense vol.
time of irredeemable currency. Tlie as
pect of the bond question, as presented in
the review, is novel, and highly encourag
ing ; it would liavc been more cheerful in
its general tone if the new loan had been
managed with more vigor.
During the two years and one month
ending April 1, 1871, the public debt lias
been reduced .$215,765,663, an amount
which will surprise tliese cavillers who have
contended that the government of the Uni
ted States must eventually become bank
rupt. Then the burden of interest lias, by
wise legislation and prudent management,
been greatly reduced. In March, 1809,
the monthly charge was $10,532,402 50;
in April, 1871, it was $9,527,212 67, be
ing a decrease of $1,005,249 911, or a round
twelve millions for the yearly interest
charge ; and this relief, it should be borne
in mind, is permanent.
Meantime, the credit of the government
has everywhere advanced, and nice calcula
tions show that our borrowing power is
now enhanced 16 per cent., as compared
with what it was at the close of Johnson's
administration. Other reductions appear
in the financial management of our excel
lent postal service, in which depart
ment an annual saving of at least $200,000
has been effected. And the reduction of
taxation is equal to $251,848,827 per an
num. These figures, and other telling
points brought out in the review, are full of
encouragement to those who wish well of
the Republic. It is a matter of congratu
lation with all members of the great Re
publican party that its administration of
the financial affairs of the nation can safely
What Republicanism docs for the na
tion these figures show. What Democracy
does for New York the figures of the city
accounts as published show; those still
concealed, apparently because too bad for
publication, by their very absence show
still more eloquently.
Howeveb men may dilfer as to the
value of Democratic government, all will
agree that to be ruled by the present Dem
ocratic party in the city and the State of
New York is rather an expensive luxury.
In 1805, when the Republicans were in
power, the total expenditures for the gov-'
ernment of the State amounted to $4,70,
--893.66, but in 1870, under Democratic mis
rule, they increased to the enormous sum
of $823,473.53, making a difference of
$340,579.88. And this is an earnest of the
kind of reduction in expenses promised by
some of our reformers. In the language of
the old books, it might be called a splendid
example of compound reduction ascending.
Canada at Richmond.—The Canada
Farmer, noticing the meeting of the Amer
ican Pomological Society iv this city, Sep
tember 6, says:
It is to be hoped that thu Agricultural
Association and the Fruit Growers' Asso
ciation of Ontario will be fully and ably
represented at this gathering, and that there .
will be such a display of the fruits of Cana
da on the occasion as will show the worthy
fruit growers of the American Pomological
Society that the Dominion of Canada can
grow as fine fruits as auy part of the con
tinent of America. We owe it to ourselves
and to the beautiful land in which we live,
to make its resources and capabilities as
widely known as possible, and to seize
upon every opportunity, and especial
ly such an opportunity as the pres
ent, to show the world that we can raise
the best apples that are to be found
on the globe. It is to be hoped that the
councils of the societies, whose charge it is
to foster the productive interests of the
country, will make such appropriations of
their funds as may be necessary to secure
a full collection of the fruits ol Ontario at
least, and send them in charge of some
competent persons to this convention.
From what we know of the quality and
perfection of our fruits, as compared with
those from any part of the United States,
we may safely court inspection, and feel
confident that we can lead the van.
We, too, hope that Ontario will take
pains to make good this boast. We want
to see Kaissas, Illinois, lowa, Indiana,
Michigan, New England, the Middle and
Southern States comparing fruits with the
Doniinionites. We will believe what we
see. Come on, Canada!

• At Hungary station, on the Fredericks

city, there has resided for a number of
years a very respectable colored family
named Moore. Mrs. Moore has several
children, the oldest of them a daughter
named Martha, aged eighteen years, who
was a constant attendant of the Methodist
church ; sought religion, and took such an
unusual interest iv the cause as to lead her
parents to fear her mind would become de

Our Police Court. —Monday morning, of
all others, is the grand gala day at this
court. The large hall is usually occupied
by such characters as have time and dispo
sition on Saturday night and Sunday to go
"slashing around the alleys and dark sinks
of infamy with which even liichmond is
afflicted. "High life" but seldom gives us
an opportunity of making pen and ink
sketches of it person ami character, but
this deficiency is more than made up by the
number of representatives of all ages, sizes
and colors of "low life."
Here we find the grey-headed, grizzly
bearded, tobacco-stained and whiskey
scented offender of seventy and more,
who, although tottering upon the brink of
eternity, finds time to indulge in passions
which age should have destroyed. These
bear marks of lives of dissipation and vice,
against which moral influences seem to re
bound as a ball thrown against a stone
wall. The individual of fifty, who, by
dissipation and crime, looks feeble seventy,
is often represented, and though apparently
the most hardened wretch of them all, de
clares his character for twenty-five years
has been unspotted by any suspicion of
The young man or woman of twenty
five, whose life should be devoted to sonic
thing of credit to themselves, is too often
found side by side with the old and con
firmed offender, or with the less experi
enced of tender years. Our court like
those of other cities, is frequently called up
on to.witness the evil doings of those at
this shape of life. Then too, are we fre
quently called upon to witness the trial of
young offenders who, either by nature, im
moral training, or by force of example, are
guilty of all sorts offences against tlie law.
Such cases are calculated to awaken with
in us a feeling of sympathy. Our kind and
merciful Justice unites with his other qual
ities au appreciation of the weakness and
liability to err of this class of offenders,
and renders his decisions, when required in
in such cases, tempered wilh mercy.
This morning the court-room was crowd
ed with idle spectators, mart of whom were
colored. Tbe presence of such a number
rendered the hall extremely uncomfortable
to those who were present, either as spectf
tor or otherwise. Had we been a specta
tor, we would have been somewhere else.
The Justice, fresh from the repose of
Sunday, would have found it impossible to
stand the sweltering heat and delightful
scent usually found iv the room, but for
the polite attentions of a crippled reporter,
who fnuiid pleasure in wielding a huge
palm leaf fan. The graceful manner of
handling the palm added much to the comfort
of the Justice, and enabled him to keep
cool iv the otherwise oppressive atmos
The sergeant, usually in a good humor
at the prospect of gathering in a number of
lines, was somewhat irritated by the crowd
filling every aperture in which a little air,
just oil'spoilt fish, beef hides, vegetables,
&c., might enter. His stentorian voice was
constantly heard, crying "silence," but
there was no "silence."
' Mr. Richardson was as calm and innocent
looking as a lamb in pea season, while de
tectives ami policemen, as usual, added
lai'gely to the number in the hall.

His wife appeared against him, who, from

would make Mrs. Meekins pay for the
offence of appearing against him.
We differ with the Justice as to the pro

to repeat their cowardly and cruel conduct.

Joseph Campbell wanted two chickens
for his Sunday dinner, which he obtained
without the consent of the owner. He got

Mingo Johnson, a colored tiddler, was
up for creating a disturbance. He was or

Robert Davis, (we want to say not 'loth

both,) Louisa Wynants, Alice Wynants,
and Kli74i Lightfoot, the latter colored, were
up, chained with stealing $70 from the
pockets of Thomas Griffin.
Thomas may have been a good looking
man, but a month's constant drunkenness
left the question in doubt. However' he
was iv the city last Saturday, and after
making a payment on a house recently pur
chased, of about a hundred and forty dol
lars, he had seventy-five left with which to
have a good time. Meeting with Robert
Davis, who is a good, kind-hearted crea

pay for an elegant dinner at Zetelle's. This
over, he was asked to visit some pretty
girls (?) and of course accepted the invita

He wtJnt, he saw, he conquered, and was
robbed of every red he possessed. The

friends to take care of him until he got so

SHE ATTEMPTS TO OUT HER THROAT
AND THEN TAKES ARSENIC.
The suicide mania which has been raging
in our city for some months past came near
finding another victim on yesterday—this
time in the person of Mary Ware, a bright
mulatto girl about eighteen years of age.
The facts as we have learned are these :
Mary, who resides in a house of ill-fame on
Lcigiit street, corner of Adams, has, for
some days past, expressed herself as being
tired of life, without giving any particular
cause. On Friday last she obtained a
razor nnd attempted to cut her throat, but
was prevented by some of her friends; and
again on yesterday she sent to a drug store
and purchased a quantity of arsenic,
which she swallowed, and then returned to
W r hen found she was in an almost insen
ble condition. Dr. Bright was called in,
and, after considerable time and trouble,
succeeded in restoring her to consciousness.
Last evening she was almost entirely recov
ered. She still declares she will yet suc
ceed in putting an end to her unbearable
life. She is from Chnstiansburg, and has
been in this city but about a month, and
nearly ever since her arrival here she has
suffered from fits of melancholy.
We had hoped this epidemic had passed
entirely from us, but fear we Vf ill again be
called upon to record the untimely end of
Convict. —Anna Brooks, cold, was re

which institution she was sentenced for one

•Shot Himself. —On Saturday morning
Mr. Traylor, of the firm of Waldron &
Traylor, while handling a pistol, at his res
idence, on Second street, beyond Leigh,
shot himself. We failed to ascertain the
extent of the injury inflicted, but have been
informed that, though severe, the wound .
inflicted was not very serious.
Resignation of a Pastor. —Rev. J. A.
Chambliss yesterday tendered his resigna
tion as pastor of the Second Baptist church,
which was accepted, with but few dissent
Making up for Lost Time. —After an ab
sence of several days among his friends of
the North, and determined not to be behind
in such matters, the Governor appointed,
Saturday, a few more notaries public.
Manchester IMew* nnd Gossip.
Sudden Death. —On last Saturday eve
ning, Mrs. Cook, wife of Mr. Wm. Cook,
one of our most respectable citizens, was
discovered, about 4 o'clock, by one of her
neighbors, lying on her face with a young
baby under her. Assistance was had and
medical aid called in. Although not
thought lo be in a dying condition when
taken up, death cam* to her relief at about
7 o'clock. Appoplexy of the heart is sup
posed to have been the cause. She leaves a
husband and three children.
Request. —We have been requested by
the deacons of the Colored Baptist church
of Manchester to state that they do not
countenance excursions on the Sabbath for
the benefit of I iod's house. They were not
connected with nor authorized any one so
to use the name of the Manchester Colored
Baptist church in the excursion to AVest
Point on yestei day the tith, and hope no
one will even use the name of this church
again in the desecration of the Lord's day.
They feel that this day was made for man
to worship Cod in his "temple," and not
on steamboat excursions.

mond, of the Episcopal church, preached
an able sermon last night on the subject of
temperance, to a large audience. Manches

A Letter from Port Royal, Caroline coun
ty, informs us of the death of Mrs. KATY
Games, who died July 25th, 1871, at the
residence of her son-in-law in that town. —
She was supposed to be the oldest inhabi
tant of the State.
Her recollections of the county, and of
incidents of the Revolution of Seventy-six,
give evidence of great age. She is said to
have been past the age of one hundred and
eighteen years. She, like many of her
age, loved to talk of the immortal Wash

For fifty years she was a devout Chris
tian and a devoted member of the church.
For some days previous to her death she
positively refused to cat anything ottered
her, assuring its the reason, that she had
been informed by the good Shepherd that
she had lived as long as she ought ; and
that being prepared and ready to go, she
was unwilling even to sustain life longer.
She was beloved by all who knew her,
white and black.
Calmly folding her arms she exclaimed,
"Blessed Jesus, I am coining ; now we
can walk in peace together." These were
her last words, giving comfort and consola
