subject, will account for the non-appearanc
of a reply to the article of the Eiic/iiin r »
this morning.
Colonel Daniels has a weakness for con
lessing his errors, and will cheerfully do si
;f wrong; but we are disposed to dotib
the insinuation of the Enquirer, that the
statements concerning the funding bill were
either criminal or bhmdeis.
The Journal has, fortunately, "blun
dered" on a number of facts conncctet
with tho Funding Bill and the maimer o
its passage, and has thundered it into them
so strong, that Democracy in Virginia is so
divided upon the subject, that no man ii
the Valley or Southwest, with legislative
ambitions, dare defend it.

The following preamble antl resolution!
were offered by John E. Jones, Ksq., ant
unanimously adopted:
Whekeas it is not only the privilege, but th
duty of freemen, to step forth, and boldly am
frankly declare tlieir opinioh* regarding th
"fence law," as well ns the right of a frc
people peacably A to assemble and to express their
opinions upon in" course of cuncluet of tlieir re
presentatives and their Governor, in vetoing
the Bill 303, who, according to correct piin
ciples, are regarded as the agents of Iluise ii
whom resides the sovereign power; and that th
rights of the people *of the second district o
Tuckahoe township have been disregarded by
the Governor and former representative*of Hen
rico county; and
Whereas, an act relating to fences, and tor Hi
proteotton of crops, passed January 2 . 1888, am
th* said act, left to the county court of any coun
ty in the Commonwealth to be in force in thei
county, or in any selected portion thereof, and
Whkreas, the'coiiiuy court of Henrico county
did adopt the said net to be in force in the uppe
or second district of said eoumy in Tuckano
township, to the injury and annoyance of nil tb
farmers, and the people generally, from raising
. ;ii I le. sheep, horses mules, swine, goats, or meat
cattle of any discription ; therefore
Resolved, Thai the nominees for the House of
Delegates, and Senators from the county of Hen

[COMM.NICATEP
To the Editor ofthe Steite Journal.
Can it be possible (as stated in the Stat
Treasurer's letter to Messrs. Baker & Co.
Winchester,) that by the auditor's reporf,
that after paying all Ihe expenses of govern*
tnent for the year 1871, there will be a bal
fe of $1,500,1XJ0 in the treasury. Now,
will you be so kind as to explain why
Legislature required the taxes to be
paid Ist of September; failing to do which,
we, the tax-payers, are required to pay five
per centum additional. If it be true, as
stated in your convention, that this stun is
deposited in our so-called banks, at lour
per cent, per annum, to be loaded out by
fhem at from ten to fifteen per cent., is it
uot sufficient proof to satisfy even' tax-pay
er, at least, that the Conservative party
are, to say the very least, very bad iinau-
It cannot possibly be true that our State
officials have any pecuniary motive in re
quiring our already over-burdened tax
payers to raise money at from 10 to 1. per
cent, to pay into the State Treasury money
to be loaned out at 1 per cent ? But, to
my mind, no sane man would thus manage
his own affairs; consequently there is no
other mode of accounting fpi• such action,
unless they were pecuniarily interested.
Look at it: the tax-payer is to pay his
taxes six or eight months before the neces
sities of the State require tlieir payment,
which, if lie fails to do, he will be made to
pay 5 per cent, additional. His properly
can be sold by tho sheriff (with which ho is
now threatened,) to pay money not re
quired for sjx or eight months! I hope,
sir, you will ventilate this piece of—either
stupidity or rascality.
lam no politician, though I acted with
the Old Whig, and have since fallen into
the Conservative ranks, but I do feel a
litely and sensative interest in the finances
ofthe State. lam now taxed 25 per cent,
of all my income to support the city mitl
State government. If this funding bill pro
gresses I suppose it will take another
I ask the attention of the tax-payers of
this city and State to consider seriously the
• subject of taxation, antl sustain that party
at the approaching election ou which we can
rely for a remedy to this growing evil. —
Will you, Mr. Editor, enlighten us on the
funding bill. It strikes me there is some

nation of them and the public, that the re- ;

wo judicial districts, changed the time al
vhich these courts should commence their .

said act to be held in Alexandria on the

Norfolk on the first Monday of May and

The Circuit court will be opened next
Monday at il o'clock I. M., by Judge L'u

The Union Hotel.—The large house,
situated on Seventh street, near Broad, and
known as the "I nion Motel" was yostcr-
Ray sold at public auction, and purchased
y Bush Burgess, Esq., for the sum of
_Looo,
Its location and interior arrangements
arc such as to render it a desirable place in
which to hold public meetings, and as tlie
Republican party is sadly in need of such
a place, if Mr. iinrgess is willing to sell, we
would recommend the formation of a joint
stock company to purchase the house lor
party use.
In every city of the North, of any size,
political parlies own property and use it as
"Headquarters," where all important meet
ings of the party are held, and we can see no
reason why this city and our partymay not
he provided with such a convenience.
We believe the party has in it a sufficient
number of gentlemen of wealth, who woijld
be willing to contribute for the purpose we
have indicated, and wo hope immediate
steps will be taken Lo carry out our ideas.

Mr. Arnold is regarded as a speaker of
ability, and will, no doubt, do good work
in the approaching canvas.
Corn'. —The monthly report of llie De
partment of Agriculture, for August and
September, baa teen received. Tho report
gives the following information concerning
the corn crop in Virginia: A very line
prospect is reported from Princess Anne,
N'ansemoml, Henrico aud Surry, while
drought is materially shortening the crop
in Nelson, Buckingham, Madison, Amelia,
Pulaski, Bath. Highland, Louisa, Rappa
hannock, and Augusta counties. In Mont
gomery, the crop was terribly injured by
drought, but has improved beyond expec
tations. Corn is .unusually fine and abun
dant in the impel section of King Georga
county, but has suffered for the want of
rain in the eastern section. In favored por
tions ofthe county the yield is 50 per cent,
above that of last" year.

GREAT DISSATISFACTION EXISTS
AMOMi THE DEMOCRATS OF RICHMOND
BM 'APSE OF THE MEN AND MANNER
UY WHICH THEY WERE NOMINATED.
Many of the better men of the party
cannot be induced to vote for tricksters,
bullies, and clowns. Among the pot-house
politicians there is equal dissatisfaction.
Several lights have already taken place,
and we are prepared to see many more
atuoug tho faithful.
'[ho Evening A'< ws wants to- know what
business it is of ours if meetings were
packed or rings controlled its party.
To this we answer, it IS our business to
do all we can against the parly which is
alllicting the whole country by its corrup
tions and cheating. It is our duty am
pleasure to expose to the public the unfair
ness which characterized the nominating
conventions of the party, in order that al
honest men may BM the diflbrence betweer
t'ae conduct of your party and ours.
There are hundreds of men who hereto
i• ;■ have blindly supported the ticket made
for them, who are determined this fall to
vote lor men, aufl not for the infamous
hypocritic measures of Democracy.
The universal acknowledgement that th;
Democratic city ticket is weak, while thi.
Republican ticket is composed of some tin
ablest, most respectable and worthy citizens
of Richmond, will give in success if we
will only make an sport.
The nomination of Tom Wynne is the
death blow to the party in this city, ant
if we, as we should do, elect our ticket
iv a great measure, this man of so grea
ambition, will be entitled to much grati
lode from the Republican purl;,. W(
have only to unite our .strength, put gooi
man to work to watch the polls, and lav
man lo count the ballots WHO CAN

Congressional district to the following cal
to select a delegate tv the Southern Colored

The president of the National Burea

a meeting of the National Labor Union at
the same time and place, and it would be
well enough to select a person who is eli

money to defray the expenses of your del

The following, which we take from the

friend Maddox is a decidedly clever jester.
In advising Republicans to register, anrl if
refused, he adtls:
Bee lliat your name is properly registered, or
promptly appeal to the County .udpe, or Hus

If this isn't olfering a stone for bread,
and salt water to quench thirst, then we
