OFFICIAL CALL FOR A STATE CONVEN
onus Run- mi. an State Central Committer 1
Or the Repibi.ican Party or Viruinia, I
Richmond, August hi, 1871. )
lb the Voters o/ Virginia :
At a meeting of tho Committee, held in this
city on the 15th instant, it was—
Resolved, That the Repnhlican voters of Vir
ginia be assembled in delegated Convention, in
the city of Richmond, on Wednesday, the 27th
day of September, at 12 o'clock M. And it was
further ordered, that the Convention consist of
one hundred and thirty-eight members, to be ap
l>orlioned among the counties, according to the
apportionment of the House of Delegates of the
New Constitution. The delegate, in every in
stance, must be a resident of the Legislative Dis
trict which he claims to represent. This rule is
also applicable to Proxies and Alternates.
Immediately upon receipt hereof, Chairmen—
or, in their absence, the Secretaries—of county
committees will forthwith assemble their com
mittee, and take such steps as will ensure a full
representation to the Convention. Where no or
ganization exists, Republicans will confer togeth
er, and ttjion proper notice call a meeting of tho
people at a convenient time and place, for the
purpose of selecting the number ol delegates to
which the county may be entitled. We recom
mend that the credentials of delegates, in every
instance, be signed by the Chairman and Secre
tary of the convention or meeting at which they
We would urge that prompt and efficient action
lie taken to secure a full representation from eve
ry portion of the State.
Hv order of the Committee:
11. 11. WELLS, Chairman.
Sam'i, F. Maddux, Secretary.
We are about to start a semi-weekly
paper, to enable our country subscribers to
obtain the market reports, political and
general news, &c, more promptly.
The Semi -'Weekly will issue from this
oilice. It will be of the same size as the
daily, and contain the freshest news up to
the date of issue, and a large amount of
reading matter. Hy this arrangement we
shall be able to reach distant-subscribers
much more promptly than now. It will be
especially valuable as a campaign papcri
and we place the rates low enough to bring
it within reach of all. Tho price, as seen
in the head of our columns, will be $2 HO
per annum, $1 25 for six months and 75
cents for three mouths, with liberal terms
for clubs of ten or more. We rely upon
our friends to send us a good list for the
Rahi'.i.v if ever have we entered a campaign
unier better auspices or with so many advan
tages upon our side. On all national questions
the Democracy is, by its own confession, beaten.
Contrite and upon its knees it asks the forgive
ness of the country. It admits the validity of ]
the constitutional amendments, and in so doing
endorses all the achievements and acts of the Re- !
The Democracy was never more divide J or so
demoralized. At the North it has been convicted I
of plundering the people, of truckling to mob
violence, and of denying to American citizens tho
very rights for which they hate sought this sup- t
posed land of freedom. At the South it is the
party ol organized murderers—its crimos an out- '
race of all law and decency and a disgrace to onr i
The platform troubles of the Democrats
remind us of the efforts of au upturned
turtle, stretching out its flippers to all
points, but remaining helplessly upon its
back. The party is as full of declarations
as a French official order of council,
"considering" this and that, but unlike
such official orders it is absolutely incon
clusive, except upon one point, determi- j
nition to assert false premises, misrepre- i
sent facts, and suppress truth. •
The latest effort is the Doolittlc plat- |
form in Wisconsin. Resolution first |
"points with pride to economical aduiinis- 1
tration under Democratic rule," which, in (
view of recent developments in New York, .'
may be considered the best joke of the i
season. Resolution two is a guarded pro- <
fession of allegiance to the principles of '
States Rights as understood by Democracy, <
and is carefully worded so as not to say
too much for their Northern, or too little I
for their Southern friends. Resolution i
three declares in favor of a "tariff for I
revenue," but the writers evidently labored I
to "draw it mild," for they carefully i
avoid any allusion to the effect of our c
present tariff upon manufactures, content- t
ing themselves with the assertion (which 1
is certainly not tho fact), that our tariff r
system has "fettered and crippled every a
agricultural pursuit." i
If the wheat grower* Wisconsin will 1
take the trouble to follow their wheat to its v
point of consumption, they will find that n
for every bushel sold at Liverpool to their a
Free Trade friends, ten, aye fifty bushels ii
are sold at better prices to consumers at the n
manufacturing centres in tho United States; ti
and even purblind Free Traders must ad
mit that the lumie market is akoays tlie best B
market for the sella: cl
The Pittsburg Commercial calls upon Mr. tl
Wells for information in relation to this ai
resolution, as follows : w
The third resolution of the Wisconsin Demo
cratic platform declares "in favor of a tariff for
revenue," and charges the administration with Ct
robbing the masses for the enrichment of the If
1.-.v. Here is the scheme for revenue from cus
toms as proposed by Mr. Wells, Lite special coin- ca
uiissioner of revenue, and the financial apostle
of il..- fret- trade party. It is to he found on page re
lot) of his report for the year ISGy: ,i.

Of the money to be derived from these articles
of food and drink, Mr. Wells projioses to collect WJ
Mxty muttons from the items of tea, coffee, sugar til
and molasses, articles which, as everybody
knows, are much mors largely consumed t,y the
laboring classes than by the rich. This does not t
look greatly like free trade, nor indicate any par- stl
titular interest in the welfare of the poor ; hut pi
very strongly suggests that the outcry against f,
protection Is not leveled against the imjiositiou of til
duties themselves, hut only against such as re
late to goods of Hritish Manufacture. The De
inocrary of Wisconsin should request Mr. Wells — '■
to rise and explain. -w
Mr. Wells is the great Democratic an- Ju
thority on Free Trade matters, and will F j
doubtless clear up our doubts, whether this
resolution is not framed with an eye to the k
j possible abolition of customs charges on
goods passing through Canada. Resolution
No. 4 is stereotyped—"corruption, profli
gacy, squandered," Ac, as applied to the
administration. It says, that to be sure
some of tho national debt has been paid,
but as the payment was made fiom public
revenue, no credit is due to the govern
ment. "Oppressive taxation" is dwelt
upon, but strict silence kept as to the many
and important reductions in internal
revenue taxation, while the amount
collected shows little decrease, owing
to faithful administration and honest ac
counting of department officials ! Resolu
tion No. B relates to the amendments to the
constitution, known as the Thirteenth,
Fourteenth anil Fifteenth amendmend
ments, and announces, as they "have been
declared by the properly constituted au
thorities to be a part of the fundamental
law of the land, they are binding upon the
people." This is a mild form of the New
Departure, but a seperate vote was de
: manded upon its adoption, and a motion to
strike out received about a dozen votes,
■ but .was tlefeated, and the harmless plati
tude retained as part of the platform, to the
intense disgust of the "Old-Liners."
The seventh resolution denounces "every
outbreak of lawlessness and violence,
whether committed at tho North or the
South" but as the only "outbreak" com
plained of, is the employment of United
States troops for the purpose of "overaw
ing political conventions of the people" it
is clear either that Ku-Klux outrages at the
South have not yet been heard of in Wis
consin, or that Wisconsin Democrats are
of the opinion that they should be allowed
to go on unchecked.
We miss, also, the plank upon which the
Whig now tloats in the political sea—de
manding payment for slaves held previous
,to the war. This is to be regretted, be
cause it is important both in principle and
amount, and must necessitate remodelling
the Doolittlc resolutions in reference to
tarilf and taxation.
Contrasted with the misrepresentations
and evasions which constitute the staple of
Democratic utterances, in what bold, bright
relief do the platform and enunciations of
the Republican party present themselves.
Not burrowing in a dead past, clamour
ing for an impossible present, or threaten
ing a revolutionary, reactionary future; but
recognizing the duty to meet public obliga
tions, reduce public burdens, raid secure to
every citizen that equal protection under
the laws, to which ho is entitled, the Re
publican party claims the allegiance and
challenges the admiration of every citizen
who prefers prosperity to prostration, peace
Tn every city there is a wide held for
Christian missionary labor; of such labor
it is a sad truth, that the application of the
Scripture text is directly pertinent: "The
harvest truly is plenteous, but the labor
ers are few," and in this regard we indite
the request: "Pray ye, thcrefore.tlie Lord of
the harvest, that be will send forth laborers
into his harvest."
To direct the aid of the many charitable
and earnest Christian men and women in
our city, into a channel where a plenteous
harvest awaits laborers, we mention the
good work which is being quietly but
faithfully performed by that earnest mis
sionary, the Rev. Matthew Marshall, aided
by Mr. T. R. Hewlett and others, and sug
gest that they need help, which help will be
appreciated most thankfully, and adminis
tered judiciously by them.
Wesley chapel on Seventeenth street is,
we believe, owned by Mr. Hewlett, and
from improper use as a tenement-house, has
been altered so as to fit it for its original
purpose—a church and school-house. A
Sabbath school is organized, under Mr.
Stewart as superintendent, and although the
attendance is not so large as the surround
ing population should furnish, it is steadily
increasing, and the orderly, earnest de
meanor of the scholars shows that they
appreciate their privileges. This school needs
and deserves help, by donation of books
for the library, and papers, &c, for distri
bution, and also the moral help which is
given by occasional visits of those who can
sympathise with the officers of the school,
and by teaching and counsel, interest the
children, making the school-house on the
Sabbath a pleasure as well as a profit to
But the Seventeenth street school is not
the sole mission work these good men have
undertaken. On each Sabbath the voice of
prayer and praise is raised in the lowest
purlieus of Richmond. The character of
many unfortunates who exist (it cannot be
called living) on and near Cary and Seven
teenth to Twentieth streets, is too well
known to our city readers, and yet unpro
mising as is the field, the Sabbath meetings
at Cash-Comer have already borne fruit
under the self-sacriliciug labors of these
humble city missionaries. In several indi
vidual cases "those who came to scoff, re
mained to pray," and the effect is made
apparent," by one of the plague spots hav
ing closed its doors, and of the inmates !
more than one has expressed a determine- i
tion to "go and sin no more." i
Here, as we are informed, the work
must stand still, unlesss the aid this arti
cle is intended to solicit, is rendered by
those who have this world's goods,
and are willing to ibnvaid home missionary '
The repentant Magdalens ask, when urg
ed to "cease to do evil"—where can I go to
"learn to do well ?" and these missionaries
cannot answer, because they have neither
refuge, nor means to provide it, and this is
the request we make : that charitable chris
tians will examine into this work, and if (as I
we doubt not will be the case) they find it to ,
be their duty to provide a house of refuge,
where repentance can become reformation,
and Jiabits of industry be formed, which
will be a safeguard against future tempta
tion, the means will be forthcoming. 7

plans to all who are interested in abridging

RAPPINO PAPER may be had at this
BY INVITATION OF MR. F.O. WTLLIAMf,
of the canty of Nottoway, a number of gentle
men assembled at his residence Saturday, De
cember 10, to test by practical experiment the
comimrattve ralne of the DIXIE I'LOW, manu
factured by Starke A Co., and any other that
mlfhl enter the Held of competition.
The plows were taken to the field at half
past two l». M., the following gentlemen acting as
judges: F. W. Eppes, J. 11. Williams, Robert
Scott. Jas. S. Oillinm, Wm. T. Christian, Rich
ard bppoft. Dr. Darring, Sidney Oraves, Walton
Svdnor.F (!. Williams, ON. Seay, and .1. M.
Hurt. Mr. S. Graves nnd Walton Sydnor were
the princijial plowmen. Mr. W. Sidhor working
the Watt plow, and S. Oraves the Dixie—both of
whom handled them wilh masterly skill nnil
Those entered were I he Dixie two-horse right and
left-hand plows, and the Watt two-horse left
hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam
ot the Dixie right-hand broke iv two nnd w«s laid
aside, tlie contest being narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixie right-hand. The soil first selected
was a stnbble loam without soil; but as the plows
were new, nnd did not torn in consequence of the
roughness of ihe castings, after a short trial It
was decided to take them intoanotherfleld where
the soil was A well-trodden, tenacious clay, with
a timothy sod covered with vegetation arid with
straw. The plows here performed theirwork ad
mirably, cutting nnd turning wilhottt choking.
As the Dixie was a now comer, as the contest
waxed warm most of the judges took hold of it
to test personally its practical working. While
there Is no intention to do injustice to any, as
neither party had agent or representative pre
sent, nnd both plows did well, yet the trial, wilh
the award of Ihe judges, is deemed of sufficient
im|K>rtnnce lo the interest of agriculture to justi
fy its publication.
The award of the judges was unanimously in
favor of the Dixie on the following grounds:
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow.
2d. It cut a wider furrow.
3d. It more effectually inverted the sod.
4th. The draft seemed to be no greater.
6th. The mechanical arrangement for altering
cnt was deemed more simple and efficient.
At the conclusion of the trial some of the
judges were so pleased is lo determine to order
them for their own use.
.T. _. HURT, Secretary.
I certify that the above was sent to the Rich
mond "Whig for publication by myself; that I
am not acqnainted with Mr. Starke; that he hail
never seen the paper and knew nothing of its
contents, and was in no wise a party to the trial
of the plows alluded 10.

manufacturers themselves, but hope that every
fanner will at once moke a full trial of the DIXIE
with every plow he can find, and buy that which
does the best work. I have been not able to supply
