Thomas Carlyle says: "You will never get bread and bacon by talking about it." In all popular organizations, after the first impulse, there comes always an inter- : nal struggle. Even in the army, long days i of inaction bring personal quarrels and in- i trigues without number—the quarrels be- , tween the ins and outs, lint let the long- i roll beat, and every man springs into line, 1 prepared to assault or resist the common ' foe. In the shock of battle, mean jeal- s ousies and rivalries disappear. ( All intelligent commanders recognise the , danger of demoralization among idle troops, < Precisely this lesson is taught by the histo ry of parties, and especially of the Repub lican party. < )ur danger in Virginia is pre- , cisely this, that the party is doing nothing, , or nothing adequate to its own numbers ( and powers, and the demands of the situa tion. And we have intestine quarrels, < strife and bickerings, because we are idle and have nothing to divert us from these childish employments. The remedy is ear nest work and a union against the common . enemy. AVliatever differences may exist as to personal claims, all true Republicans '. will agree upon the propriety and import ance of several duties now long neglected. - t Ist. That the party should be thoroughly and minutely organized throughout the State. J 2d. That a series of meetings should be held at all available places in the State, to extend a knowledge of Republican princi- a pies and secure their adoption by the pee- r pie. a 3d, That newspapers, and printed matter r of all kinds should be circulated, so as to t bring within reach of every man, who can . read, sound information upon all political t , topics. 4Hi. That a careful canvass should be made, and promptly returned to the Cent tral Committee, showing, as far as may be, ° the deficiencies and needs of ditfercnt dis- a tricts of the State, that they may be sup- » plied and remedied. This work, without which no party can have its forces in hand for a political contest, is jcommon ground. To neglect it, is to forfeit every claim to v recognition as Republicans. To this work we therefore summon every man who pro- " fesses the Republican faith. Let the State committee at its meeting first arrange a thorough organization. That committee was appointed to do this very % thing. If it cannot agree to do il, then it is practically a worthless incumbrance upon y the party. If il will not undertake this P work, and attend to it primarily lo the ex- n elusion of ccery oilier, until il has provided emergency, then it is a fraudulent n cheat upon the party whose work it has un dertaken, but refuses to do. , ; If the committee will not do.this work, c' and do it promptly and energetically, we 1 shall then favor an immediate Convention of all earnest Republicans to undertake reor- h ganization. The Republican party is sound ° to the core. Its divisions are on the sur face. There are differences ou questions _ nit vital to its existence, personal prefer- S ences and interests, honest divergencies of b opinion, that must he treated with mutual tolerance. We cannot tolerate, however, ?! ... « ii any indolent indifference, without courting j and deserving defeat. - n We will go for our worst enemy if he will make the party strong. We will o sacrifice our best friend if his advancement (> weakens it. This we consider, simply com nion sense in the conduct of party warfare. !, We ask no man to support our paper even, c: to the exclusion of others. If the National n Virginian suits any of our friends better, help circulate it, and catch some of its earnestness, without absorbing its bitter- tl ness. Support, also, the many deserving a; local papers. a: Work resolutely, persistently, energeli- Cl cally everywhere and at all times, to en- . lighten and convince our fellow citizens, and persuade them to unite in overthrowing a that monstrous and bloody cheat, which, in ti the name of Democracy, seeks only to rob * the people, and lo destroy liberty and civil- ( i ization. p THE _ABOR~~UoKUKESS. " We are exceedingly gratified with the progress of sound doctrines of labor reform among the friends of the workingmen s / movement, as evidenced in the action of tho St. Louis meeting. We have always '■ detested and denounced the barbarous and m useless methods of strikes, intimidation a and narrow fanaticisms, which characterize 1' some phases of the labor movement, es pecially in the Old World. '' Our defense in this country against the \\ infection of this unutterably dangerous o spirit, as subversive of the freest Republi- Jj can and Democratic government as of the , most absolute despotism, is our intelligent '( labor, now thoroughly organized by trades, States and into general Congress, the latter n being at present iv session at St. iAjuis. It . is this body, in especial, which must plant * itself firmly and squarely in opposition to all incendiary attempts to ignore the immut- *' able laws of nature. The right relations n of labor to law, law in the broadest sense, " is of even more importance that the right relations of labor to capital. Naturally v the many demagogues, vain and ignorant '[ men, whose only labor is frequently to live without labor on the honest il earnings of better people, seek to enroll s themselves among respectable and honest J Workingmen, and to win a seeming support | for tlieir absurd theories of money, work, _ and government. One of the chief aims of " the Labor Congress should be to make such J men understand that there is no place for them in its deliberations. The laws of na- fi ture are as the everlasting hills ; instead of « trying sillily to move fhe hills out of the Way, right-minded men seek to cultivate j ihem to the best advantage of man.

THE PATRIOTIC IUBBONMEN It is proposed by the New York Ribbon men to organize several regiments of Irish malitia "to defend the country from ene- j mies, foreign and domestic." These patri otic Ribbonmen remind one of the story told ! of John Randolph: At a horse race, a | blackleg proposed to bet with the eccentric i Virginian. " But who will hold the ! stakes?" asks R. "Smith, here," replied the sharper, pointing to his pal. "Very well," says Randolph, "but who will hold Smith." The Washington organ of the Democ racy, in a spasm of contrition, says the term carpet-bagger includes "many North ern men, who, animated by the highest motives, and not" the less high because fairly selfish, saw in the desolated and rel atively vacant South a field where good might be done, and legitimate industry, with its fair rivalries, pursued ; who went there honestly to settle, and, if they could, assimilate themselves —make themselves integral parts of the social aggregate." Thero are thousands of such men at the South to-day, many of whom went there as Democrats, but of whom social persecu tion and political Ku-Kluxism have made the staunchest of all Radicals. Secketaky Boutwell, in answer to a letter from Hon. John Scott, has fur nished a statement of the unadjusted bal ances against ex-collectors of internal reve nue iv this State. It is a complete refuta tion of a favorite charge of the Democratic press, anil deserves to be read and ponder ed by every thinking man.

The mean depth of the North Atlantic ocean, which is stated by Maury to be 12, --500 feet, has been reduced by more elabo rate soundings to 9,000, and it is probable, according to Keith Johnson, Jr., the great geographer, that this average depth is great- I er than will be verified by future measure ments. A young man in Contra Costa county i California, is said to have killed 10,000 , squirrels in a season. He sells the skins of the squirrels for fifteen cents each to the agents of foreign kid-glove manufacturers, and the county pays him a bounty of ten ' cents a head for every squirrel killed. The report of one.of the agents interested ! in promoting immigration, to Canada says , that there are 100,000 able-bodied, respect- , able workingmen in Scotland, who desire i to emigrate with their families, but for ', want of means beyond their daily require- . meat- cannot get away. A Scotch-Cana- , dian Land company has been formed, which proposes to pay the passage money of these men, and settle them on land in Canada. National I.iiluir Congress. SI.

An animated discussion followed, in which it was stated that there are no other people so oppressed as women, and that African slavery was not to be compared with the slar very of the workingwomen in this country. It was also stated that in the conventions at New York and Philadelphia the question had been hotly discussed, with such excite ment that thirty-eight delegates retired from the meeting. 'fhe words "secure the ballot" were finally stricken from the resolution, and, es thus amended, the resolutions were adopted. The convention adjourned to meet in Nashville, Term., on the second Tuesday in September.

Police Court.—The Green- Eyed Monttfef, Juvenile Counterfeiter. —A number of per sons were before his Honor this morning to answer for keeping their premises hi a filthy condition. They were lined according to the merits of their cases ; after which they wire allowed to depart, much sadder if not wiser. The first criminal case called was that of •I. .1. Sut! erlantl, proprietor of a livery sta ble on Fir> -klin street, and Thomas Whit lock, I r il dealer in watermelons. These parties were up to answer for fighting in the public street. From the evidence it seems that Whitlock had sold .Sutherland a melon that proved to be unripe, and that this cause- both parties to call each other a liar, from which a fight ensued. The Jus tice decided thai they were eipially guilty, and accordingly fined each 85. Joseph McCann,a pugilistic looking youth, Was up to answer for trespassing on the promises of John Minton. At the special request of John, Joe was let off. Win. Weedcn, a small colored 1103-, put in an appearande to answer for attempting to paass |S0 counterfeit note. From the evidence, the following facts were elicited : William, is employed at the custom-house ; on yesterday he went to the store of Mr. Harrison, 011 Broad street, where he oliercd the counterfeit note. The Justice decided that this was a case for the United States authorities, and accordingly sent him to Commissioner l.ynham. Bettie Braxton, an African brunette, charged with leaving the premises of her husband, Win. Braxton, without his per mission, and William for threatening to send Bettie to a very warm climate. The trouble in this case seems to be that Bettie is in love with a gentleman of tho ginger bread hue, who in her eyes is "moe of a gem'man than William."
