The Richmond I'lnquirer it the organ of Demotraey in Virginia, and to it we put these question* direct, and respectfully ask of it a reply without any evasion whatever: I.S THERE NOT IN' THIS CITY SECRET riH.ITtCAI, ORGANIZATIONS OF THS CONSERVATIVE PARTY WHICH EX CLUDES A__ CATHOLICS Ir'HOM MKM BERSHti'? Do not these organizationl control all patty action in ski ret; and do they not so manipulate party matters ns to render oulside and Independent action utterly worthless and of no oH'ect ? Arc not these counc ; ls, clubs, societies, or by whatever name known, endorsed, and their action concm. Ed Jn or counte nanced, by the City Central Committee, or such a majority thereof, as controls the nc lion of the party in this city? If these societies do exist, w i'l the Kn i/itirti- tell us the difference between the Consetvative paiLy of to-day aud the Know-Nothing pai iy of the past ? We pause for a reply. We make Hie cliarge, and usk the Knijuirrr if it can "CONFESSION FROM IHE WALLOWS." For the information of the Alexandria Standard and Sentinel, we will stale that sickness in the family of Colonel Edward Daniels has prevented him irom giving Mi personal attention to the editorial coltnß of this gaper for several weeks, and th he is NOT the author of the article header "Confession From tlie tlallows," and th fie author is NOT "a man who cemc down hero from the North," but, on tl contrary, a ) ; fe-lnng Virginian, of no 3■ tt reputation, both as a writer and defend) of Republican principles. The best of a is, that he generally defends what he snv "i speech or pi "it.. We say this much ; u order that juatk may be done Colonel Daniels in the digtri in which he resides. M I M VI,. The Hifjiatili, with its usual ./i''V«.' ■sit, referring to the nomination for the Sena by the Hepublii'iiiis of Fail fax of Colone F.dward Daniels, the editor of this pape says "he is always writing as if he wou do so," (repudiate the Statu debt.) The Dispatch knows better, and we def it lo show a single instance in which th •State Journal, ever said one word lavor of rt'pndinHin. "We go further, am defy the Dispaiih to lind a single licjiidil ran in Virginia who r» in favor of it. In its search for such an one, we are sure it will find several thousand Dcmocra who not only favor repudiation, but wl sire pledged to such a policy, in case o election to the next Legislature. Colonel Daniels wW speak for l> ; mse on his return to the city. Petersburg, October 13,1871. ! Tv Ihe Editor iifllie UUiltt Jimrmd : A dashing young man of our city, who was appointed by our Republican Council | last July one of the members of the Board I of the Ijovver Appomattox Company, eager j for fame and distinction,or, as Cobbcfc said, I "anxious to sec his name iv dirty print," announces to the world, and particularly the people of Richmond and Petersburg, through tho Index and IHtpaioh, that he resigns his position on the Hoard of the Imwcr Appomattox Company, which insti tution, no doubt, wiil deeply regret the loss of such an able and sharp Jinancicr. Now, to obviate this lamentable loss to our time-honored Board, and lo have this resignation properly accepted, will it not be necessary to have a public meeting called of all the citizens ol big Richmond, little Petersburg, and surrounding counties, especially those through which flows tbe ' noble Appomattox, to determine if it would | lie advisable, in the present slate of the ■ country, to receive this gentleman's resigna- I (Your advice on so momentous a«|ueslion is anxiously looked for before the next meeting of our Common Council, which takes place on the Ist of November; and please advise with (loveinor Walker and We do BOt like to advise our friends with out being thoroughly acquainted with the subject; and as we have no idea offfcp value of the services of the gentleman n - breed to, we arc at a loss to suggest the proper course to pursue as to the accept ance of his resignation. Governor Walker, true to his "0. B." •nstincts, never stays at home long enpugh to bo consulted upon important trailers, consequently wo.pannot confer with him. Mayor Keiley's acquaintance with Peters- i burg is of such a character as to give weight to his opinion, lie says, "let him slide." If the gentleman who wlsltes to re sign be young and inexperenccd, we con cur with Mayor Keily. We saw enough Saturday in Petersburg to satisfy us, that "hydrophobia" i.s quite prevalent [among tho Democrats of that place, and that in their madness there is no method. Del them rare, stamp and bellow, but as you have got their noses to the ring, hold them there until they cry "peace," and then make them give good Republican security before you slacken the rope.

Captain 11. i.s thcpiiiiiyr of Mr. K. 11. Oil!, and for a number of years was under bim, while superintendent of the Virginia and Tennes see road, which has never yet turned out other than iirst-rate men. An hour niter leaving Richmond, .Satur day, we found ourselves in the Cockade city, and c.i our arrival, found a neat and comfortable building had been erected at the depot, used as a reception room, ticket ollice and hotel, where through passengers may refresh themselves with comfortable and nicely prepared food. The hotel is presided over by Mr. M. (i. Furcron, who i.s a Voting gentletnnn of agreeable manners, and who is bound, as travel increases, to make h : s cnteiprisoa paying one. To a resident of Richmond, which has recently been so rapidly improving by the erection of new buildings and the thorough repair of old ones, Petersburg looks sad and along ways behind the age. Here and there we are greeted by half burnt estab lishments, through W-'ch daylight impu dently peeps, and whose charred remains give evidence of the want of capital and en terprise. The streets look dirty and neglected, al though we are sussurcd that the new Coun cil, under Republican auspices, will soon make an agroable change in this direction, "Boarding and lodging" greets one at every corner, and only lack the boarders and lodgers to drive a brisk trade. The cotton trade of the city is said lo be ira provingj wh'le some of the larger business | DOUSCS gave, the only evidence of the truth of such a speculation. The new academy of mucic is fast ap proaching completion, and is considered by the sanguine ns the great "Bain ofGileid'' to build up and rejuvenate the old place. Evety thing wrong about tho cily is blamed on tlie Radicals, while tho fact • i they havo had so little to do with the gov ernment of the city lately to be >>i no wise responsible. The Republican pa Hy have nt last ol - tamed control of Petersburg, and w ; ", no j doubt, do its duty as far as possible. We learned that Dr. David F. May had | consented to allow the use of bis name for ihe nomination of the pa> iy to the Legisla- j are. We trust this i.s so, and that there will ie no division as to the necessity of send- I g such a man as Dr. May to that body. is flat-footed surrender to Republican n-inciples has irritated Democracy, and it s daily seen roaming around Ike a mad mil, bellowing and scraping the earth, j Oh, you vipers ! how you do hate to sec a respectable gentleman of talents deset t | your old rotten hulk—in your inadncs;i you would rather see the whole th'ng go to the bottom; but there are other David Mays iv Virginia who will make you snort in 1872. Look out for them. We are endeavoring to arrange for send ing our last edition to Petersburg, thereby j giving the people the latest evenirg news of tbis city. A distressing accident occuued Saturday night on the Southside road, by which Jos. Archer, a young man employed at Kcevan's mills, was run over and horribly mangled. He fell asleep on the track, and was seen by the engineer too late to save his life. Archer was a young man of steady habits and good character, lie was buried yesterday temoon. The Man Who Won't Advertise. lie merchant who does not advertise is dis nguished very easily by his care-worn and ejected countenance, lie is grasping— adds fast to what lie has, and is ai'raid to suture. He is generally sobish, and looks ion all customers with distrust. The iserly eagei.less with which he clutches io pay for his goods creates an antipathy nr liiui in the minds of his patrons, and icy generally leave him. His store i.s any ling but inviting, as the goods are not d_> ayed at all, and a bleak appearance of ie walls is the consequence. lie generally has dry goods, groceries, lardware, etc., all jumbled up together. Vt night lie pinches his gas-pipes till they carcely omit any light at all, or lights his ore with the poorest quality of candles, 'bich shed a pale glimmer over his goods,, giving them an old and dusty look. At lis store you will be certain to lind mean vhiskey, soap, damaged dry goods, and groceries—all last year's fashions, etc. He seldom gives anything for public improve ment or charitable pin poses, and measures E unkind generally in his own half bushel, ich a man never helps to build lai'roads, > ti amboats, telegraph lines, or anything of tbat kind. If the balance of mankind were likehim, tnge coaches would be the only public con cyance. Where great cities now stand a bw double pen log-houses and a bar-room would be instead. Colleges and schools Would never have been thought of, and ilissful ignorance would now reign supreme. Ie is never posted on the topics of the day, nor is he injbnncd in regard to commercial affairs, because he shuts himself off from that source of information by discounte nancing the press, the only means throngh which it can be attained. And when bo dies he is not generally lamented. Standinu l> to the BACK — Fire] l'.j'.v o>i Hia Feet— "Hob," tho sorrel horse, used in the afternoon to assist in pul ling the street cars up Ninth street, was owned for twelve mouths by Carber & Co., then sold four years ago to the City Rail way company. Within that period, as far back as we have any knowledge of him, he lias never been known to lie down to rest, but stands upon his feet whenever he sleeps. This is somewhat remarkable in tho course of nature, and is the lirst case of the kind we ever heard of. He may ti u'y be said to "stand up to the rack, fodder or no fod der." Regular Trii's.—The line steamer "Palisade," having received needed repairs, haa resumed her regular trips. We reler travelers and shippers to the advertise ing at City Hall to-night. —There has been funded to date twenty one millions of the State debt. —A weekly lecture on the bible is a new feature in the Richmond college. —Mayor Keiley will present a flag to the Petersburg Riflemen on the 2.5 th. ™ —We learn that tsl scholars have com menced the study of the (Jcrman language in our city schools. —Amo'.ig tho Offerings at the Corn and Flour Exchange tins morning were twenty four bushels of peanuts. —Tho "Past Officers" of the various or ders of temperance Will hold a meeting at Fit—bush lodge room to-night. —Virginia was "toasted" nt a well at tended meeting of the Irish Catholic Union, in Louisville, a few nights ago. —John 11.

Saved in Time.—Last Thursday eve ning the workmen who were engaged re pairing the roof of the Masonic Hall on Twenfy-Fi.th street, left their lire pot on the building, and the wind prevailing short- Kr caused the lire in it to be increuM-.1, ignited a portion of the cornice of Lidding. Fortunately, the firo was , d'scovered by Mr. Ed. Cary, who ascended to the roof with some dilliculty and extin guished the lire in a very ingenious manner, thus saving [considerable property from de ■fraction. The Revival of religion on Church; and I,'nion bills is increasing in interest, and meetings wi'l be continued during this week at Leigh-Street Baptist church and L'nion Station M. E. church. There were twenty live conversions at Leigh-Street church du ring tho week, and last night the ordinance of baptism was administered to live per sons. Great good is being accomplished by these meetings. Shay Found Guiltv.—Tlie case of J. 11. Seay, charged with shooting (ieorge F.pjis, with tho circumstances of which our readers are familiar, was given to the jury late on Saturday evening. The jury re mained out till alter 7 o'clock. They were then brought into court, and, on being asked the usual questions by the clerk, Kided that tliey found the prisoner of unlawful shooting, and fixed his L $">OO, and his term of imprisonment city jnil at six months. k Itch-Bug Coming.— If thero anything in the world we do admire, it is modesty, of which Colonel Thomas Wynne soems to have a. large supply. lie is superintendent of the Petersburg railroad, member of the City Council, and now wants the people of Richmond to send him to the Senate. Will a sufficient nmr-i ber of them gratify him ? We think not; in fact, we have aiready beard a number oi Democrats declare their opposition to him and their determination to scratch him an( Daniel from the ticket, liovenslcin, too, i seems wi'l find he is Ihe owner of a large sized itch-bug, which will set his party to scratching considerably on the 7th. The rest of the ticket are iiardly worth consid ering, as there w'U be no trouble to delta them. ..etm Citizens' Insurance Company.— We rol'er the business community to the advertisement iv another column of the Citizens' Insurance company of New York, of which R. T. Brooke is tho Richmoni agent. Mr. It. is an old and prominen citizen, and enjoys the confidence of the community. The company which he ro presents sustained but a small loss by the Chicago lire, and its n.ssets on the Ist of ; October were $7U,4lC.'j I. tended hy the Ku-Klux of Monroe wan and no doiilit their Tammany assmiati will enlighten the people of Richmond tc night as lo how much majority Democrat will demand in the election this fall. The general estimate has been fixed i 500, and we believe DO one ol the part/hi been instructed to put it at lower figure If the Republicans of Richmond are sue fools as to permit these frauds and swindle to he perpetrated on them any longer, tin they deserve nothing better than to b ruled over by the Democratic rod. To the R_PC__tC__ JcixitiS o Election of Richmond.—Th* ftepnl lican judges of election iv this city, arc uigcd to meet the City Central Coiinnilt this evening, at 7.J o'clock, at the Custon House.

The Pood Man's Friend.—The poor men of Richmond are called to hear their particular friend, (11 R. T. Daniel, address them to-night. They Know he is their friend —in a horn—and will rally as one man to his support. His efforts in their behalf, his entire disintere tednes'i in politi cal affairs, all point to him as a genera favorite with the poor laboring men o llichmoiid.
