constrained to applaud.— Whig.
The Whig sees proper thus to Fpcak of
our references to Justice White. We not
only concur with its statement referring to
Mr. White, but again repeat what we have
so frequently said of this gentlemen—and I
that is, that he is "an honest and just man j
in the discharge of his official duties. A
large number of trying cases, in which the I
colored peoplo of Richmond are interested,
como before Justice White, whom we have
watched with intense interest, and of whom
we have never been justified in speaking I
otherwise than as we have.
The mere fact of our applauding Justice I
White for being just, is evidence that he is '
an exception to those who have the dispo- j
sition of similar cases; but Mr. White can- I
not and does not leaven the whole partisan |
judiciary of the State. You need not single I
him out, and refer to him as a fair sample
of others of your party similarly situated.
We wish it would be fair to do so ; but the
crowded state of our penitentiary,—the !
erection of whipping posts all over the I
State, and their frequent use, deny in un- j
inistakable language a comparison with the j
majority of such officers.
An intimate acipiaintance with many
sections of the State, and a knowledge of j
the conduct of your law officers, convince |
us we are not unjust when we say their j
conduct has driven the colored people such
a distance from the part}', as that the thun
ders of Heaven alone can recall them.
More cases, in which colored people are
interested, are heard by Justice White, |
than by any other twenty judges in Vir
ginia, and yet we have never heard of him |
condemning a single one to the whipping
post, or, without the most justifiable
cause, consigning them to prisons. How
is it if you cross the James into the neigh- '
boring county of Chesterfield ? How is it I

We have heard your judges boast
that they had performed a hard day's t
labor—that they had that day consigned a |
half dozen negroes to the penitentiary.
Such language as that m which our co
temporary has indulged) for the past sixty
days can ,be of no avail, so long as it is
known by the colored people that the Dem- j
ocratic party not only legislates in favor of j
the white and against their own race, but
carefully selects oi' it- material, lit tools to
execute their unjust and inhuman laws.
The negroes would be the simplest fools ;
of God's creation if they did not despise j
and hate your iniquitous laws, and those !
who glory in their execution. I f the Whig I

Chicago, Oct. 15.—A meeting of the of- I
ficers oi' the national batiks of Chicago waa
held on Sunday evening for the purpose of
I conferring with Mr. Ilurlburt, Comptroller i
lof Currency. J. lrvin Pearce, President of
the Third National Bank, occupied the
chair ; Henry Greenbaum, of the German
National Bank, secretary.
A full exchange of views touching the
condition of the Chicago banks, as affected
by the lire, was had.
It was ascertained, upon comparison of
liabilities and resources, that all the banks
were perfectly sound, and should resume
business at once. The only delay asked
by any of the banks was for sufficient time
to convey their safes from the ruins to new
places of business, and to arrange their
books and office furniture.
After considerable discussion, in which
the comptroller participated, a resolution,
immediately, was unanimously rescinded,
and resolution adopted to open for regular
transaction of business at 10 A. M. on the
17th inst. The following address has been
Having ascertained from personal investigation
that the national banks of Chicago are solvent
institutions, and that, notwithstanding tlie lato ,
fire, they are able and ready to pay all just,
claims on presentation, I hereby announce that
tbe national banks of Chicago will open their
doors for the transaction of business as usual on
Tuesday, the 17th instant, at IDA. M., and I here
by express my belief in their ability to meet all
their legitimate engagements on demand.

The London " Tunes" on the Western Fires.
landon, Oct. 14.—The Times this morn
ing states that the Lord Mayor has received
el 7,000 as the result of two days'sub
scriptions to the Chicago Relief Fund, and
that lists have been opened for the recep
tion of contributions at Birmingham, Brad
ford, Hanloy, and other towns in the man
ufacturing districts. The Times also has a
leading article, in which, reviewing the
Chicago conflagration and the great fires
now ravaging tho fields and forests of the
Northwest, and adducing the prompt ac
tion of the United States authorities in sup
pressing the attempted Fenian invasion uf
Manitoba under General O'Neil, it drawi
the conclusion that England and English
men are herein furnished with every incen
tive to labor and to give for ihe alleviation
of the suffering caused by the dreadful ca
lamities in the West.
The Chicago calamity absorbed public
attention last week to such an extent that
the returns from the important State elec
tions held during the week almost passed
without notice. Returns are not yet com
plete, but those already received show Re
publican majorities of 40 000 in lowa, U),
--000 in Pennsylvania, and '22,000 in Ohio.
In the latter State the Senate is reported to
be a tie, while in the House the Republi

from Northern Wisconsin confirm all pre
vious reports and rumors. The loss of lif
iv the neighborhood of Pishtego will reac

cannot recover.
Reports from the cast shore of Green
bay, place the loss of life fully as high a
at Pishtego. The same account states that
the immediate wants of the people arc sup
plied, but large amounts of provisions am
clothing will be required for the comin
winter. The Mayor of Milwaukie has
issued an appeal to the people of the coun-
Chicago, October 15.—Pishtego (Wis.
dates to'the 12th record the utter destruc
tion of the town. Four hundred dead bo
dies have been recovered, and it is thought
that 300 more aro in tho river, where the
intense heat caused death by inhalation
while the rest of tho body was under wa
ter. The velocity of the lire was so grea
that all escape was impossible. A large
number of dead were brought to Oconto
lor burial, as no materials for coffins could
be procured.
The loss of life on the east shore in Dover
and Kewanee counties are appalling. All
communication is severed, and the terrible
news comes slowly. At Pcnsaukee 25
dwellings wore burned and several lives lost.
The destruction of hay, farm-houses, and
fences in the vicinity is complete.
In Brussells, Dover county, 200 houses,
comprising the Belgian settlement, were
destroyed, and a large number of persons
are missing. The people, in utter destitu
tion, are struck dumb with the losses, and
powerless. Houses, barns, farming im
plements, and cattle all destroyed ; roads
are filled with carcasses of animals —horses,
cattle, and sheep—dying from smoke and j
heat, while hunger and starvation must be j
endured by the wretched people. Mere j
Kaure has been destroyed, and all its in- 1
habitants are destitute, houseless, and |
homeless. No particulars has been re- !
It is reported that the whole country is
on lire from Green bay to Menominee De
pcre. Wrightown and Fort Howard are
threatened. No rain fell for two mouths
until to-day, when copious showers were
hailed with joy.
Great numbers of wounded have been
brought to Green Bay. The scenes were
appaling. Men and women were partially
roasted alive, their eyes burned out and
their ears burned off. Advices from Fan
dv Lac say that reports from tho northern
districts grow hourly worse. The accounts
of suffering are unparalletl. Clothes, food,
and money are greatly needed.
Great lires are also" reported iv Calumet |
county. Dwellings, bams, hay, grain and
stock "have been destroyed. Not a single
town in tho county has escaped. All
crops have been destroyed. Particulars
have not boon received.
L»te advices say that the towns of Mari
etta and Maroetti were partially saved.
The heavy rain which is falling has nearly
extinguished the fires in Calumet aud
Sheeboygan counties.
Chicago, Oct. 14.—A letter from Green
Bay, Wis., reports the burning of Wil
liamson's mills. Fifty-five lives were lost,
and ten of the survivors were badly burned.
Only three persons escaped uninjured.
Some idea may be formed of the fire in
the neighborhood of Green Bay by these
details. The list of casualties, however, is
necessarily very imperfect. Reports now
received show that the conflagration has
swept through the whole northern tiers
of counties —Marathon, Shawano, Brown,
Oconto, Keewannec, Door, Wanpaga, Ou
tagamie and Winnebago suffering the worst.
The loss in these districts is computed at
$10,000,000, which falls to a large oxtent
upon small fanners, whose entire capital is
but a few hundred dollars, and to whom
insurance is unknown. The painful earn
ings and savings of years of honest toi
have thus been swept out of existence b
the havoc of a night.

Cowardly.—AVe arc reliably informed
that those who control party affairs in
Richmond, have interdicted any public dis
cussion with our candidates. This is sim
ply cowardice ; and if we aro left to
judge as to who does much towards man
aging the party, we would charge this cow
anliie upon one of the candidates. For
■h-BW on you, gentlemen, who are the
champions of a professed glorious cause,
that you are afraid to come out before the
public and tell the people what you are.
Our candidates are ready to meet yours at
any time and place you may designate, and
if you refuse to accept the invitation, you
but give evidence that you are ashamed of
this morning by Master Robert Crop
The terrapin was captured in the ('hick
ahominy swamp, near the Meadow Bridg
road. The inscription reads thus: "July
18G3—A. Byron, Com. 0, G2nd Ohio.
The letters are ruae, and some parts of th
inscriptions scarcely legible, especially th
letter of the company.
If the gallant Uhio soldier, who rclievei
somewhat of the tedium of camp life, b
tracing the inscription on this hard-she
denizen of the swamps, is still alive, ant
this should meet his eye, he may be pleaset
to know that his strange companion ha
" turned up" and '• a tale unfolds" of the
conflicts on the Chickahominy. This i
probably the first time his terrapinship hai
visited Richmond since the war closed, aiu
he shows no little astonishment at the cvi
dences of prosperity all around him.
Excise Us.—We have received a com
munication making inquiry as to the pay

Seekers of Human Suffrage.—
What a pleasure it is to dwell together ii

Democrats at last returning to reason, am

The Theatre Last Night— Miss
Lii.LIE K-DRIDGE.—The audience greet
ing Miss Eldridge at the Theatre last flight,
was the best one we have seen since the
first night of Mrs. Chanfrati's appearance
as "Christie Johntsonc." We were not dis
appointed lost night to find Miss Eldridge
all we had been taught to expect. Her
manners atid appearance are such as to win
favor with the public, while her amiability
at once gives her an abiding place in the
hearts of those who behold her.
To be just, we must say she lacks ex
pression ; and if the redundancy of Mrs.
Noyes was divided with that of Miss Eld
ridge, it would be serviceable to both.
Iho play of "Alma" did not have au ap
preciative audience, for its first reception,
nor was it such an one as Richmond can
provide for a play of its character.
Miss E. will become a favorite wherever
she goes, and if our readers would enjoy a
treat we advise them to attend the theatre
during the engagement of this charming
young actress.
To-night the beautiful play of "Alma"
will be performed for the last time. Tho
performance will conclude with the lasigha
e farce entitled "Stage Struck."
