DOLLAR ITON TDK HUNDRF.D DOLLARS' VALLA- ] TION, OR DOLBLI. WHAT THKY , ARE NOW! ! That under the Funding Rill j not a dollar in money will ever l reach the state treasury at i'he- •' sent rates, as the coupons are ! made receivable for taxes, and will all be bought dp by the . County Treasurers at a discount, and turned over to the state in lieu oe money. ! We defy 'Treasurer Rye, or any other man, to deny these propositions. Why is the Richmond press silent on this question f ! " '*""" • —— i THE ELECTION. At sunrise to-morrow each of us will stand face to face with duty, duty which . we owe to ourselves, our posterity, and our country ; and that is, having tho privileges of freemen, to exercise those privileges, and whatever influence we may be able individ ually to exert upon our fellows, we exert that inllueiice wherever it may be most eltective for good. Although, as our friends are well aware, we present, as Republicans, the names of giiilleuien as candidates for the responsible position of legislative representatives of the capital of the State, whose character, intel ligence, and thorough identification «ith the interests of this city and the State ren der them worthy of the honor conferred, it is not merely on personal grounds that we ask united and earnest support of the nom inees. There is a principle to be vindicated —a great underlying principle of our gov ernment, which has been outraged at for mer elections in this city—that in our pop ular government the majority of votes cast by the people shall elect the candidate for whom they are cast. Wo ask the people to-morrow to render their verdict, condemning the infamous ac tions of ballot-box-breakers, and the bold but equally unscrupulous olficials who have nullified the rights of the people, by keep ing them from the polls, until too late to de posit their ballots before sunset. This verdict can only be rendered in an elfi.tive manner by voters giving one day tot country, and presenting themselves early at the polls, prepared to defeat the schemes of those who are ready and willing to re peat the outrage, while they seek lo cover up the fraud, by seeming desire to tlo only what is prescribed by law. The election of the Republican candi dates to-morrow, will not only place the stamp of popular disapproval upon the frauds and tricks by which former victo ries have been wrested from us ; but it will be of incalculable advantage to our city. It will show that tho sectionalists, who would perpetuate discord and bitter ness, between Virginia and her sister States, north of the Potomac, who would aggravate the alienation which resulted from attempted and defeated secession, are no longer the controlling element in our midst ; and the now receding tide of peace ful immigration, carrying to us new enter prise, tptickened industry, and increasing wealth, would be checked and ere long re turn as a Hood tide, floating oil' the Hats and bars of ruin upon which they now lie hopelessly stranded, thousands of impov erished citizens and stagnated enterprises. We desire an emphatic condemnation of the narrow bigoted spirit,whoso blighting in fluence has shut up the avenues to success in city and country ; has discouraged new comers, who have settled in Virginia ; has kept back thousands who would otherwise have cast their fortunes with us ; and worse still, has driven out of the State many of our most energetic and capable young men, in search of inure liberal and enlightened places and people, where competition, if free, is fair; where speech and action arc as free as thought and air. As we above remark, though wo point with pride to our candidates, as men who are eminently entitled to our support, we urge upon every voter that their election, important as it is, is of secondary conse quence to popular assertion—that, hence forth Richmond is tlie Free f'apital of a Free State. We intendeiUohave noticeil au.u.'_tion put lons l.v the Stats .I.ii'iinai, nliout ibe l-'uiiiliuic Bill,hut other matter! ha\ a pressed on our columns ami o: r attention. Wo have simply to say that we think the course of the 1.. i"....i'-:ui member, of tin- Legislature iv voting In ihe bill \.:is rijtht. We are opposed lo all forms of Repudiation. We think it was right lo make the eoupoM iv. Hyalite for taxes. If you intend to pay the inter.*.t on . two-thirds (and it is only two-thirds) of the il. i.i. wti&t dittCreii.'i' does it make . and if you arc not ! going to pay—that's repudiation. The Enquirer creeps through a very -mall knot-hole in the above paragraph, and plants itself conveniently on the fence ready to utter its oracular—"f told ran so !"—as circumstances arise in the future. We regret the Eiu/uirr, _M been so pressed with other important matter.-', | that it has been unable to carry out its in teiition—"to have noticed a qua__jon put lv us by the _TATK .bo „_.__}_, iiiiuut the Funding Dill." ] As this insiguiiicanl question lnV.Tv._l i some _..i),(K-i,(.HKi, principal and interest, i j a present annual taxation amounting to some SJ/MlO/KKi, and prospective future j t taxation amounting to some $1,000,000 ' lif it cannot pause a moment to :: questions propounded as to the Funding t Hill. ii Ha. the Enquirer not looked into that I small Compound interest charge of MOO,* 01)0 per annum, which the State was not j ■ chargeable with ______ the Funding Rill , r threw it upon an already overburdened peo- ' r, pie? If not, we do hope it will, and no- j c ; tice this, perhaps trilling matter, in its is- ' sue to-morrow, so that voters may know what is before them. And if the Enquire/ [ ' can rise to explain what is the exact mean- ; ' ing of the words in parenthesis "(and it is i ' only two-thirds) of the debt." and, what has become of tho other one-third of the debt? we shall hold ourselves indebted to that journal. Ip to this time, the oracles of Demo cracy are more indistinct and unintelligible in their utterances on this important ques tion, than any l'ythones who spoke from the tripod in the days of Greek idolatry. Dear friends to the breach to-morrow. ' 'i'he old Slate looks fondly upon those who k>ve her and would guard her dearest in terests. Surely, says she, my sons will no longer leave me to be plundered by thieving Democrats —the hirelings of that prince of • rogues—Boss Tweed. Ip, and to the res cue Our sister State of New York will ! strangle the monster and clothe him in 1 striped linen ; let us discard his progeny in Virginia, and do honor to ourselves. i It almost heaves vs to eollow ] the example ok a hi isty sheet, and ' yet we mist eight the devil with IT BE. ] The colored people arc urged to vote for j Democrats because they employ them.— i Was ever greater impudence exhibited ? , Suppose they do, do noL their employers ' get value received for all they pay them ? i What would Judge Crump think of the , jack-ass, who, because ho employed him to attend to his law business, would demand that he vote for him ? 'I'he cases are anal- ', agous, and the man who asserts the color- ' til man ought to vote so and so, because Mr. G-man gives him a quarter to black his \ boots, writes himself an ass. ~ .n L - J ' .-_-_r~-_-.— To-MOBROW the election takes place, and no Republican should fail to vote, fu ' dii.ision is the meanest of traits. The man who is inuleciiloil now must bo lacking in personal independence in the last degree. The general interpretation will be, that he favors Democracy, yet is not bold enough to brave the ignominy he will bring upon himself by voting the Democratic ticket. Such a man would bo more respected wore he to vote the dirly thing. Every man with a brave and honest tteart will vote. There is no ground for indecision to rest upon. . If we strike Democracy a blow now, it will never raise its filthy head again in Vir ginia. With money stolen from tho city of New York, by Tweed, Sweeney and Company, it has been able to buy Chinese lanterns, burn tar barrels, and swindle the Republi cans out of tho offices ; but, thanks be unto the Most High, Tweed and Company are on their way to the Penitentiary, and Vir ginia Democracy to ruin. Strike the mons ter now, and his slime will no longer retard the prosperity of the State. 1 SOME few poor negroes, are the deluded victims of villainous Democrats, whose stolen plunder have induced them to desert their friends and the only political party which has ever attempted to battle for their rights. Even this few are becoming 1 disgusted with their associates, and at times show fight when tlieir bad company 'is thrown up to them. Six or seven, embraces all there is of col ored Democracy in this city, and even they are becoming ashamed of themselves. Tin: candidates, both in the city and county, of the Republican party are entire ly unexceptional in all the quaiilications necessary to a faithful and honorable dis charge of the duties which will devolve up on them, if elected. They should receive fie united support of the Republican par ty, and of all who are in favor of tho pro gressive ideas of the age. Ki.MEMiSEH, poor men of Virginia, that Democratic rule, with Ross Walker at its head, has brought upon the State untold • miseries. The debt of the State has been almost doubled, while the credit of the Coiiinionwcaltli is going downward and still downward. This is but one of the re sults of thieving Democracy. More of them will be enumerated. A victory for the Republican party in this State to-morrow would largely enhance tho value of every tract of land in the ( ___- inonwealth. How? Why, such a victory would bo an invitation "to capital and immi gration to enter the State, assuring them of protection, and the peaceable enjoyment of tho fruits of their labor. Don't scratch your ticket. It is some- ' times justifiable, but when the choice is tic- ! tween honest and respectable Republican- ' ism and dishonest Democracy, having the I power to elect Democratic judges, who re- ' gard neither law nor justice, to scratch tho : ticket is to commit political murder. "Opposition to Radicalism" i» a very poor battle cry. We ask the honest men of this State if it promises them any sub stantial benefits V "Opposition to Radical ism" means offices for Democratic leaders. , This, and nothing more. The redemption of Virginia to-morrow from Democratic misrule will do more for the material prosperity of our State and the v Idle South, than any other aot within the . pow«r of the people to accomplish. Let it be done. j Il yuii don't want tiur representatives of ' Ui-: scum of Xnrthcrii Democracy, com- _ posed principally ot trash, .-weeds, &c, to ! rob the Slate of her credit and the people < lof tlieir liberties, vote against Democracy, i If you don't want the same sort of cattle i tortile over you, that have dime so since the Kuo Republican" success, go in the polls ' vole the straight Republican ticket. .■.•ny body wants to be ruled by the 1 thieves who are attempted to be imposed upon us by the rogues of Tammany, let him vote the "('onservativc" ticket. J A vote for the Republican parly to-mor row is a vote lor a homest.ad for Ihe poor . man and free schools for the children of Ihe State. Re in the field by sunrise to-morrow morning, and stay in it all day. See that there are no stragglers. Have every man out. A vote for the Republican party to morrow, is a vote for free farms, free schools, and free speech in Virginia. ELECTION LAW. We lay before our readers extracts from the election law, and ask their careful at tention to the different sections. (>ur space forbids publishing the law in lull, or even in the strict language of tho text, so far as we present it, and if doubts arise, we trust our friends will procure copies of the Act 18U0-70 and 1870-71 and oltectually fore stall any effort on the part of judges to prevent opouing of polls at the time speci fied by law, and proper canvass of votes and making up returns after close of the polls. [-xriui'T.] Qualifications. —§ 21. Every male ,'i:iy..'ii of the United Stales, 21 years old, resident of the Slate twelve months, and of the county, city or town, in which he shall oiler to vole, three months, and who Is a registered voter in and resident of the I'li'.iion district in which he shall oiler to vote. Judges of Election.— § 24. Three competent male citizens, from each voting district, cotisti tute the judges, who have power to appoint two clerks. If any judge fails to attend at voting place one hour after the time prescribed by law for opening the polls (sunrise) tbe judge or judges can select from among the bystanders. Should all the judges tail to attend, any Justine of tho iieace in a township or mayor of a city shall appoint three judges. Should no judge of election be appointed, or if appointed, refuse to act for an hour after sunrise, any three compe tent free-holders of the district may act, haying first taken prescribed oalh. But no person shall act as judge of election who is a candidate for any ollice to lie tilled at that election, nor unless he shall take and sub scribe the following oath : "I, (A. 11.,) judge (or clerk) of the election (as the case may he) do sol emnly swear (or altlnn) that I will perform the duties of judge (or clerk) according to law to the best of my ability ; and that I will studiously endeavor lo prevent fraud, deceit, or ahusi' in conducting UiU election—so help me God." If no one present authorized to administer oaths, the judge of election may administer to each oth er and their clerks. § an. Before proclamation is made of opening the polls the judges of election shall open their ballot-boxes iv the presence of the people, turn ing them upside down, then lock them, and bal lot-boxes shall not be opened excepl for the pur pose of counting the ballots after the close of the i-oiis. |SI. The ballot shall be a white paper ticket, arid containing on tlie inside of it, written or printed, the names of the persons for whom the elector intends to vote, and designating the ollice to which each person so named is intended by him to be chosen ; but no ballot shall contain a greater number of names of person* designated to any ollice than there are persons to be chosen at the election to till such ollice, and the names of all persons voted for by an elector shall be on one ballot. § _>. Tlie judge to whom ballot is delivered shall then pronounce in an audible voice the name of the person from whom it is received. If the name of tlie person is found on the registra tion book, nnd there is no objection made, the judge shall, without opening said ballot, or per mitting the same to be opened (except to ascer tain whether it is a single ballot), deposit tho same in the ballot-box. § .13. Any elector may, and it shall be the duty of tho judge, to challenge the vote of any person who may be known or snspscted not to lie a duly qualified voter. _ 34. Persons challenged shall he informed by the judge what are the qualifications of an elect or, and if the elector insists that he is qualified, and ihe challenge is not withdrawn, one of the judges shall tender to him the .haHenge oath. If he refuses to take such oath, his vole shall be rejected; if lie does take il, his vote shall be re ceived, provided, that the judges may still re fuse to receive the vote If satisfied li'oi.i record evidence, or their own knowledge, or other legal testimony adduced belore tlieni, that he is not a legal voter. § _... As soon as the polls arc finally closed, (of which closing proclamation shall be made by the judges tifte.'ii minutes previously thereto,) the judges shall proceed to canvass the vote, con tinuing such canvass, without adjournment, until completed, and the result thereof declared. " 40, The county, err corporation courts, iv the order appointing judges of election, shall desig nate five of these persons, se appointed, to act as commissioners, three of which said commission era, when so designated, shall constitute a board, (of which the clerk of the court so appoint „ ing shall ex officio be clerk, whose duty *f shall lie to meet at the clerk's office of the county or corporation for which they are appointed, ou tlie second day after any elec tion held therein, (Sunday excepted,) and pro ceed to open the several returns, which shall have been made at that office; and the said commis sioners shall determine the persons who have re ceived the gteatest number of votes, &c. Such returns shall _c reduced lo writing, and signed by said commissioners and at tested by the clerk. * * If from any cause the number ol commis sioners iv attendance at the time and place for opening returns be less than ihrce, it shall be lawful for ihe commissioner or commissioners in attendance to select from among the voters of the county or corporation one or more persons having Ihe qualifications of judges of elections, who shall at.as commission ers, should all the commissioners appointed fail lo attend at the time and place for opening the returns, it shall be lawful for any justice of the peace of the county, or mayor, if the failure occur in a city or town, to appoint from among the votors of the county or corporation three persons having the quaiilications of judges ol" election, who shall act as commissioners. Per sons so appointed shall take au oalh faithfully lo discharge Ilie duties as commissioners, the fact of such appoiiitln.'iit and the oath taken shall be noted by Ihe clerk at the foot of the abstract ot voters. § 41. Prescribes licit tlie person having the highest number of voles tor any olli.ie shall be doomed to have been elected to such office, but if two or more persons have an equal number of votes for any county, city or town, or township ollice, ihe commissioners shall determine by lot iv the presence of the candidates, or their proxies if desired, which of the candidates shall he elect ed. § 42, Prescribes that the clerk shall malic out abstracts of the yotes, which abstracts being cer tilied and signed by said i oninii.-. ioncrs and at tested by the clerk, shall be deposited In the of fice of the latter. jj 4.1. Tho clerk shall make out certificates of election and deliver the same lo the person elect ed for application therefor. THE MILWAUKEE i-_.IC_H.E__."
