This was the tenor of R. T, Daniel's
speech when he accepted the Conservative
nomination, ami alluded to tho triumph of
the Pennsylvania Central railroad over that
close corporation, the Fredeiicksburg rail
road, of which Mr. Daniel is counsel, to
the triumph of the same company over j
Moncure Robinson, Commodore McCrcady I
and tlieir allies, who for years have im- ]
posed heavy burdens on tlie people of i
Richmond, and tried to divert commerce
from their city to its great detriment. Our i
candidates are in favor of foreign corpora
tions bringing their wealth and enterprise
into Virginia, and developing her immense
mineral and agricultural resources, and
giving employment to the mechanic and la
boring man. Vie want money here and I
cheap freights. We want no Chinese poli
cy here, to build walls around old Virginia
and exclude foreigners with their money,
skill and energy. If Mr. Daniel is the ad
vocate of the Richmond, Fredericksburg
and Potomac railroad and Moncure Robin
son's A .qua Creek and I'ay Line steamers,
aud against the material interests of Rich
mond, the people here will not go withhimi
they are not in favor of any such exclusive,
selfish, old fogy policy.
Xo matter how humble the individual or j
how unpretending the position occupied,
the performance of a solemn duty brings
quiet and repose. It invites sleep—sweet
sleep that brings rest to the weary.
Every sensible man, free from prejudice,
knows it is his duty to vole against the
branch concern of Tweed, Hoffman, Swe
ncy, & Co. To vote for Democracy is to !
endorse tho "head office." To do so is to i
rob yourself, your children, and the State j
of her prosperity.
To vote the Republican ticket is to quiet j
your conscience, and elevate to power men \
who will guard your dearest rights, and
the interests of your State.
He advised by us then, i'or once. (Jet
up early, catch ihe Democratic worm, mash j
his ugly head, vote at least once, vote right,
ted your neighbor to do likewise, hunt up
the doubting, assist the lame to the polls,
ask the sick to take an extra do. _ of phy
sic, (be sure it is not Democratic, for that
would bo --inert-" - * and let you drive him
in a carriage to the polls ; in short, see that
no man who can vote stays away. Do your
whole duty to-morrow,,and you will
sleep as you have never slept before.
Eveuvuody in Richmond should vote
the Republican tickel. Men of property
ought, because the men on our ticket are
men of properly themselves, and what
would hurt them would bear equally upon
themselves. Men of no property ought, j
because our men are liberal and favor mea
sures of relief for the poor. The candidate.
of Democracy own but little, if any proper
ty, and may do you harm which would not
alfect them.
Several of them are Know Nothings, and
have been charged with cruel and vindic
tive speeches against foreign-born citizens.
Know Nothing once—Know Nothing al
ways ; and if you entrust power to them
and tho opportunity ever occurs they will
not hesitate to persecute foreigners.
Come up, then, native and foreigner,
white and black, and vote for the candi
dates of tho Republican party, who are
known to be gentlemen of h'gh character
aud standing and of liberal and enlarged
Let the poor man consider well before he
supports the ticket of aristocracy.

Alleged Contempt of Court.— (
The case of ex-Governor 11. If. Wells vs. j
the Commonwealth, was commenced by i f
Judge Green, on Saturday, before the f
Ooort of Appeals, and was resumed to-day. ,
This is likely to be regarded as one of tlie (
celebrated causes. It will be remembered
that Judge Winglield imprisoned Thorp 11. ,
Nance, for alleged contempt of court, for |
proceeding in bankruptcy aud compelling t
Ins creditors to settle their claims and pri- '
ority in that court, rather than in the State ,
court. Nance was not only imprisoned, but j
was ordered to stand committed until hs j
discontinued his case in the Tinted States j ,
Court. He was, however, subsequently |,
released, and by the decision of Judge .
Rives, of the United .States district Court of |
the Western district, the whole proceeding
before Judge YVinglield's court was held to ,
be null and void. \
In addition to the proceeding against .
Nance, Judge Winglield fined Gov. Wells ]
for contempt of court in advising Nance to ]
proceed in the United States Court, but in- ]
stead of going to the Federal Court he has ,
chosen to appeal to the Supreme Court of ]
Appeals ol the State, with a view of deter- |
niining]in that tribunal whether such a mon- \
strous outrage upon tlie rights of client and ,
counsel, can wilh impunity, be perpetrated ,
under State law and in Stale tribunals.
Ik you admire partisan legislation, and
the election of a corrupt partisan judiciary, .
fail to vote tho Republican ticket.
Important to Citizens of Broad I
Street. —The candidates of the Republi
can party in this city earnestly favor the
passage of an act by the next Legislature, )
compelling the Richmond and Fredericks
burg and Potomac Railroad to remove its
depot and track from Broad street. They '
will use their endeavors to secure the votes '
of every Republican in both houses for such '
a measure. '
Its longer continuance on Broad street is 1
a crying shame and wrong. '
If no sense of justice exists in this mono- '
poly, lot the next Legislature teach it to
Ik you would continue Guigon as your
judge, fail to vote the Republican ticket. I

The Republicans of Chesterfield have
already had erected for them, by Demo- :
cracy, a monument as enduring as the ex- •,
isteuce of that party. The horrid thing
stands with its bloody arms stretching |
forth ready to grasp the hands of it victims, .
while its extended claws seem switching
to fetter the feet of the poor and helpless.
He who is embraced try it, need stand
waiting but lor a moment to hear the \
bloody lash as it whines through the air,
and cuts through the flesh of its victim, f
This is the cruel, barbarous and savage .
whipping post of Democracy. It is no
fancy picture, but a living reality. There
it stands a disgrace to the present enlight
ened age, and yet it is the child of Vir
ginia chivalry. The scoundrel Tweed,
MBi-h his stolen plunder, helped to pay for
(-C erection of these infernal machines in
Virginia. There they will stand as long
as Democracy reigns in Virginia. If there
is a dissatisfied Republican in Chesterfield
who doubts the propriety of casting his bal
lot in favor of the Republican candidates,
let him remember this instrument of torture,
let him behold in it the liendishness of De
mocracy, and then say, if he can, stand
back. Not for this alone, but because the
ticket is a good one, is reason sufficient for
it to receive the support of every Republi
can, lie who can lay aside his personal
preferences and march straight up to duty
is as great a hero as the victor of many bat
I_ct every man in Chesterfield, Richmond
and elsewhere do his duty to-morrow, as it
is but another struggle between slavery and

An Enraoed Father Seeks his
Fallen Daughter— FaiKne to Find
Her, He Becomes Desperate aud Attempts
to Commit Murder. — This morning about
11 o'clock, Thomas Carroll, an Irishman of
this city, entered the bar-room kept by
Isabella Rix, No. 2223 Main street, and
demanded to see his daughter, Rosa, who ,
for some time had been an occupant of the
On being informed she had left the place,
Mr. Carroll became so enraged that he
drew a pistol and fired through a door lead
ing into a room occupied by several fe
males, fortunately, inflicting no damage.
One of them, Isabella Rix, lied into the
street, followed by Carroll, who fired upon
her, shooting her through the right arm.
But for her Inking refuge in an adjoining
grocery she would, doubtless, have been
killed by the desperate father. After
wounding this woman, he fired several
shots at parties occupying windows in the
house, lie was arrested by citizens, and
delivered by them into the hands of the au
thorities, and will, doubtless, be tried to- |
morrow. _
"The Columbian Club of the!
United Order op Americans."—
This is an active association of Native'
Americans and Protestants, organized by
James 11. Fisher, Esq., to manage and con- j
trol the eloction in this city. None but
Native Americans and Protestants are ad- j
mitted and put on guard. It is the germ
of are-oiganization of Know Nothingism.
Thomas H. Wynne, who was the Know
Nothing candidate lor Mayor here some
years ago, and R. T. Daniel, a most active
Know Nothing in years gone by, we are in
formed, are the moving spirits in this new
secret Order.
The Stars and Stripes.—We are
glad to see tho Conservatives at their
mass meetings making such a profuse dis- ,
[ play of the Old Flag. Their hand wagons
and the horses' heads, we have observed,
are decorated with the glorious Stars and I
Stripes, and their speaker's stands are '
wrapped with the national banner. It is a j
sign that they are discarding their old |
secession sentiments, and nn evidence that
they wish to be loyal citizens. We con
gratulate James R. Fisher, President of the
Columbian Club of the (Irdcr of United i
Americans, on this change of sentiment to
wards the Did Flag—long may it wave ;it
is good for sore eyes to see it carried about
by ex-Confederates.
The Illustrated News.—The Eee
ning News has become an illustrated paper,
and contains in its Saturday edition, a pic
ture of" mixed free-schools"—that is, it is
a representation of what its editor supposes
will be some of these days.
Wade still has a weakness I'or illustrated i
papers, caused by his long connection with j
one during the war. The lir.st attempt of
the Neics is a great improvement on the il- I
lustrations published during the war, but '
nothing so truthful. Harper and Frank !
Leslie must look out now that such a com- i
petitor has entered the field.

Xast, and reflects credit upon the artist.

the public is invited. t
Spit Comi_.omj.sed.—A suit against ,
the city of Petersburg, involving some
twenty-seven thousand dollars, commenced
about eighteen years ago, to recover dam- '
apes for freight destroyed by fire in tho old '
City Point depot, was compromised last
Friday, by the city payii a ,7,000, and re
ceiving a receipt m full for the damages
claimed. The suit was to have _____ up :
before the United States Circuit court last '
week, in this city, but the compromise has
rendered a hearing of the case unnecessary.
The assertion that Democrats "alone !
can give colored men employment." is a
Democratic lie, inanufactitreil to frighten
colored men to yote against their own in- i
terests. it is usually understood when i
labor is employed, it is a speculation, the
employer generally paying a little less than
tlie labor is really worth. Such statements
are unbecoming men of sense,and are bound i
to fail in scaring anybody.
THE experiment of Virginians governing
Virginia, has been tried, and so far has
proved a failure. Her Democratic sons in
volved her in ruinous war with the Coy- '
ernment, and the blood of her noblest and ;
bravest boys has been drunk by her thirsty
soil. If Virginians should govern Virginia,
in God's name tell us what you are doing
with Gilbert Walker in the Executive man- i
sion ! We have had a taste of Democratic i
rule, whether native or foreign, which has '
resulted in nothing better than impoverish- '
ing tlie State and rendering nine-tenths of '
her people bankrupt. If you want any '
more of this same song, sing it yourself; '
but Republicans will whistle no Democratic
time. <

Slightly Hurt.—A slight row oc
curred on Oregon Hill, last night, between

Broad street. Let Conservatives as well as
Republicans, favorable to the removal, at

sufficient to elect our candidates that is no !
reason why Republicans should stay away '
from the polls. We must have a majority
sufficiently to prevent tho Democrats from '
stealing up to it, for steal they will, and
steal's their name. i
