COMMITTEE 1 OP THE I.EI'I'SLTCAN PARTY OK VIROIMA, r Richmond, August 10, 1871. ) Yb the Voters of Virginia: At a meeting of the Committee, held in this city on the 15th instant, it was— Resolved, That tin* Republican voters of Vir ginia be assembled In delegated Convention, in the city of Richmond, on Wednesday, the iiilli iluy of'Srpteniber, at 1- o'clock M. And i' was further ordesed. that the Convention consist of one hundred ami thirty-eight members, to l»c ap portioned among tho counties, Recording to the apportionment of the House of Delegates of tin- 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 lake hiieh steps as will ensure a full representation to the Convention. Where no or ganization exists, Republicans will confvr togeth er, and upon proper notice call a meeting of th" people at a convenient time and place, for tbe purpose of selecting the number of delegates lo wluch 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 ihey are selected. We would urge that prompt nnd efficient action be taken to secure n full representation from eve ry portion of the State. Ry order of the Committee : 11. 11. WELLS, Chairman. Bak'i, F. Maddoi, Secretary. To-DAY, we issue the first number of the Semi-Weekly edition of the State Jot'R nal. As to its typography, it speaks for itself, and will compare favorably with any other paper, no matter whero published. It is the same size of our Daily, and will be furnished to subscribers at the low price of $2.00 per annum, 81.25 for six months, and 75 cents for three months, with very liberal terms to clubs of ten or more. Until the fall elections arc over, we pro pose to devote in tho Semi-Weekly espe cial attention to the progress of tho party in the State. Its columns will contain mat ter of interest from almost every county in the State, having special reference to the claims of Republican candidates. We will not neglect the market reports, general and State news, each of which will command the same attention as is devoted to them in our other issues. We are much encouraged by our friends having already sent us, a number of sub scribers, and as our paper is devoted to the cause of the Republican party, we hope each individual member will assist us to circulate it largely throughout the State. LET M ALONE. Under the head " What the South AVants," the Dispatch recently informed its readers that all our wants are summed up in this: "Let us alone." If that journal wishes to become a hermit, it has a right to do so, and we sometimes fear that nobody would care if it did; but it is in vain to expect that all, or even a majority of the good people of this State, will ever turn anchorites, or retire within the walls of convents, or other houses of retirement, where alone freedom from contact with men and society can be obtained. Set as Virginia is, in the midst of great States, strangers must pass over her terri tory and railroads, seeking for shorter routes, will inevitably cross it, bounded by a broad ocean and traversed by great streams, navigable from the sea, ships from other States and countries will touch her shores, blest with a genial climate and a fruitful soil, men of thrift, enterprise and energy will buy, improve and cultivate her lands, and stranger, railroad and ships will leavo their mark upon the face of society in spite of wearisome, petulant prayers to be let alone. Men will come here to dwell. l\ T ew comer3 generally have their own decided opinions, which they will not only express, but eventually propogate. Between our opinions and theirs a conflict will arise, not violent or forcible, but such as contact and comparison always insure. If our method is best it will be adopted ; if our opinions are soundest they will prevail; but if the .stranger has a better way or a wiser thought his way and thought ought lo win. To beckon away or to discourage him from coming by belying or belittling the State so that we may thus escape the in- ■ evituble contest for supremacy between his new opinions and our old one, is cowardly in the extreme, nor is such a method likely to be successful for any length of time, j It is not enough that habits, method and J customs are sanctified by age for the dust and cobwebs will be brushed away, the J tilt will be open and free to all coiners, and iv the very nature of the trial the highest ; and best development of reason and e.xpci\- .. ence must win, nor shall anybody with our _* consent be scared away. It is not true as 1 the article from the Dispatch attempts to b show that Virginia is an uninviting place [. for settlement, nor that the agriculturists 1 who have come here from other States k and located have found tho undertaking ll "disastrous." Men who came here I* with reasonable expectations, using their _, means judiciously and making such exer tions as they would have made at home tl have succeeded. We refer chiefly to agri culturalists, those who expect their rewards __ from the bounty of nature, and not from the patronage of their fellow men. This is not only true, but the face of the country, the houses and barns that have been built, J the new fences, the fields of grass grown _f where there was no grass before, the im- X' proved implements of agriculture intro- * v duced, and the decline in the amount of g'lano and other artificial stimo'ai'S used upon the hind in every locality where iutel _ ligent farmers from other States have set tled, shows the tremendous influence which their new methods have already had upon the .State. We sincerely hope Ihe article referred to, from the Dispatch, may not have met the eye of mv considerable number of the delegates to the American Pomological A.s --0 soeiation; for wo should be sorry to have 0 these gentlemen go home with such a false notion of the prospects offered by Virginia lo atriictiltural settlers. We abstained from jj referring to the article during tho exhibi lntion, lest, by noticing it, somebody's at tention might be called to it. We are ,i soiry that such a statement ever got into print. Tbe truth is bad enough, but to ex aggerate tho discouragements that already do exist, is a crime against tho State. The evils under which we live are politi cal. The drawbacks and discouragements - t;> immigration come not from the hand of , nature—they adhere neither in the climate, - soil or situation of the State, but are solely - the work of men's hands, incited by the | vices of men's hearts. The creed and prac ) tices of the Democratic party in Virginia j inspire the effort! to keep immigrants away from the State, and are the chief causes 3 why so few have come, nnd why so many _ of the few have gono away. Democracy 1 is the great enemy of the State. f The Cost and Profit of Grape ■ Outre.— Hearth and, Home, in a late | issue; gives an account of the cost of grow - ing aud selling the production of grapes - from 2 73-1011 acres of vineyard. Tho cul tivator puts down tho cost of cultivation - from the time of grathcring the grapes the f previous autumn to the commencement of \ pressing them this year, at $23:. 01. This - includes cultivating, hoeing and pruning, £ and SOO pounds of ammoniated superphos " phate of lime applied to part of the vinc u yard. 'The cost of picking, packing and marketing, including freight and commis [ sions, and wear and tear of crates, he gives i at |JB7 88, making total cost for the year ■ $401 30. His crop of grapes was 14,500 I. pounds, for which he received $1,090 70, so that he received $035 37 profits. In this he docs not make any charge for rent of land nor taxes, nor for taking the grapes from tho vineyard to the railway station. His vineyard contained 2,000 vines c in bearing and 2,50 younger vines. They _ are mostly Concords, a few, about one^ tenth, Delawares, and some Hartford Pro r lilic, Diana, etc. His first Delawares sold > r at 20c. per pound ; his first Concords at 10c.; his Delawares falling to 10c.; and I his Concords to Oc. before the close of tho c season. He had about 12,000 pounds of Delawares, and about 12,000 pounds of ' Concords, the remainder being divided by t some eight or nine other sorts. Isy this time it would seem that it cost him 3-15 ,_, cents to grow and market a pound of grapes; that the average gross receipts were about 7£ cents per pound, and the f net proceeds about 4 J cents per pound; or - $232 per aero. _ These grapes were marketed in tho city 0 of New \ oik.

Patented Au(r. 25, '68 STOCKING SUSPENDER AND PROTECTOR. MRS. E. L. DANIELS' STOCKING SUSPENDER AND PROTECTOR* COMBINED, FOR LADIES, AND SUSPENDER FOR CHILDREN. Fastened and Adjusted with Buckles, thus dolna nwnjr with all Ligatures, Buttons and Button-Holes, Hooks and I'i.is. Is the only article thus combined, fastened and adjusted, for this purpose in the market. All im itations are Infringements on the patent granted August 25th, IS6B, and will be so treated by Mrs Daniels' counsel. This article needs no recommendation, for it re commemls itself to every lady who sees il, being the most simple, easily adjusted, and perfect for its use ever introduced into the market. All physicians recommend its use, and one whose name is known and respected on both sides of the ocean, buys and gives away largo numbers of them to his patients, declaring that most var icose veins, weak and crippled limbs can be traced directly to the stopping of the circulation In tho lower limbs, (and consequently in the whole sys tem,) caused by the old ligature or garter. Being made entirely of elastic it never strings or wrinkles like cloth, but is as fiat and smooth after wearing for mouths as when first used, and yields with every motion, thus giving entire ease to the wearer. THE PROTECTOR ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE OF THE WHOLE ARTICLE. It is unnecessary to remove the stockings from the suspender except to change, and it is really less trouble than tho old fashioned elastic. It keeps the stocking perfectly smooth without tear ing it, and docs not ii .jure the limb. Care should be taken that tho whole article is large enough not to feel uncomfortable.
