I Mrs. Turner, wife of Hon. J. Milton | 'f (Jrner, American Minister resident in Li- ' beria, thus writes to a female friend at St. ' Louis: ] "I see and learn so many things in this i strangest of strange countries that, hurried ( as lam to reach the mail before it is closed, \ I scarcely know which to write first about. But I must tell you that the President ami Oabinctgave Mr. Turner a superb reception. . Persons from many different parts were ■ present. A few evenings afterwards he MP* i ranged for us a select gathering at his resi dence, which was simply elegant. Tho . Mayor of the city also gave us a reception , at his residence. This entertainment caused tne, lor the time being, to forget that wo . were in Africa. Every luxury of the trop- , ical climate was upon the table, and the ' company was very intellectual. . "Just to think of generals und colonels in uniform, Cabinet oflicers, city council men, lawyers, doctors, other professional characters, authors, editors, poets, and ' other distinguished literary people, together ! with a live President, and a bevy of ladies j to correspond, and they, every one, color ed ! There were also present the ministers , for England, Germany, Norway, aud Swe den, Hayti and other countries. I declare , it was the nicest affair that 1 have ever seen." —— «__■ IFromthe New Orleans Republican] J My Mother.—My mother was raised in Virginia. There were three of us chil- ( dren, Sally, Manuel and Laura, the baby, i two months old. Our owner, Mr. Royal, ( who was a kind master, died, and I saw ] my mother and all the children sold for his ( debts, and tho family scattered. Even i baby was torn from mother, and I saw its i little hands stretched toward her, and heard i its cries as they took it from her arms, and she was denied the last request to nurse it. Mr. Matins, who bought mother and two | children, but afterward permitted this | cruel separation, will remember. If any I one knows where my mother can be found, | if living, he will confer a great kindness on me by sending word to Sally, Menger House, San Antonio, Texas. ( Republican papers in tlie South are re quested to give the above a gratuitous in- i sertion. , The Chicago Gold.—The Philadel phia Ledger of Wednesday says: Tho work , of examining the coin received from the Sub- ' Treasury at Chicago was yesterday com- (, pleted at the Mint in this city. There was t about $350,000 in gold, silver and nickles. i The money has been deposited in the stone ] vaults of the Treasury at Chicago, some of | it in bags, some in paper parcels, and some i loose. After the lire tho ruins were over- , hauled, and the mass of that which was be- i lieved to be coin was sent to Philadelphia. ; When it reached hero it was apparently a mass of mortar, rags aud dirt. At the Mint, the good coin was at once extricated. and about $250,000 of this was obtained that needed no more than the application of acid to make it presentable. The bal anco consisted of masses of gold, silver and nickel, amalgamated by heat, and requir ing the process of coining to be gone over again. This was completed yesterday, and the return of the product made to the Sec retary of the Treasury. JO Hit W. VVOI.i /, Hewi and Cily Editor. I j LOCAL MATTERS. REPUBLICAN -.OMINEKS.

WATCH f THEM! mmtwatattmttnnmsknmmM '■ A "Barefoot" Policeman Assumes ; Imperial Power, and is Moved to a Position Better Suited to His Ca i pacities.—Nothing is more necessary to • the preservation of good order on exciting i occasions like the prcsent,than the selection i of wise, judicious and sensible men from • the police force to keep order among the I people. Nothing is more likely to create ■ ■ a disturbance of a serious character, than to confer power upon a simpleton or meen- i diary, who, armed with a little brief author ' ity. imagines he holds the world in a sling, ■ ana has only to let slip one string, and this > great ball will go trembling from its axis i into destruction. Of the simple, arrogant, and blustering, l swaggering kind, is one policeman Leroy Barefoot, who wears cap No. 5, and sleeps in the same numbered cot. This individu- . • al was, this morning, stationed at the vo- i ting precinct on Bank street, between I Ninth and Tenth, parsing which, we stop- I ped a moment to see how the election mat ters were going. < Seeing four or five colored men around ] the table of a Republican distributor of tick ets, this shoeless-named gentleman order ed them to leave. When asked by us why ' he did so, he answered, such were his or- i ders from the Chief of Police. i We then told the colored men if they 1 had time to loaf around the polls, they had < time to go out and hunt up their friends. This remark so enraged Mr. Barefoot that ] he rudely threatened to drag us to the sta- 1 tion-house if we repeated that language again. We repeated it then aud there, | and Mr. Barefoot retired within doors. ( I lad he carried out his threat, it is possible ( a disturbance would have occurred. We ( promptly reported tie case to Chief Poe, i who properly informed us he would move i Mr. Barefoot to some position not requiring ] any great capacity. < These want-oi-sensc men are usually re- j sponsible for the creation of disturbances, \ and we feel sure Chief Poe would not will ingly risk the peace of society, intentionally, i However humble the individual, his person- < al liberty is sacred to him, and we certain- j ly feel but little disposed to occupy a place iv a station house, simply because an ig- | norant policeman may wish us to do so. j Royal Fire Insurance Company. John H. Claiborne <fe Co., of this city, 1 have taken the Richmond agency of the ' Royal Fire Insurance company, of Liver- ' pool and London, and solicit the patronage ' of the public upon its unquestionable secu rity, its prompt and liberal settlement of all claims, and its heavy income. The ! Royal has fifty thousand dollars in United State bonds deposited with the Treasurer of Virginia. We call attention to the ad vertisement in another column. : Sold ijy their Own Friends.—All three of the Democratic papers are gass- j ing about a "bogus ticket," gotten up to j beat Messrs. Wynne and Daniel. If they don't know, they ought to know, these tickets are gotten up by Democrats to defeat these two gentlemen. ( Mr. Wynne and Mr. Daniel had as well i know they arc sold out by their own i friends, this, too, in spite of the fact that ' Wynne is the most sensible man on the ticket. , Hustings Court.— ludge Guigon, , Presiding. —The grand jury met yesterday, and returned indictments for felony against Martin R. Alley, Sarah Turner, John Wil- ] Hams, Robert Lomax, R. S. Brown, Ran- i dall Gray, James H. Brown alias Henry j Brown, and Topsey Brown. < The grand jury adjourned until Tuesday, ' 14th inst. . After the appointment of judges and i commissioners of election the court ad- j journed until Wednesday. ( Runaway AcC-PEHt. — V-___?___** i evening, a horse attached to Gill's bread wagon, having been loft without a driver, j dashed down Seventh street at a furious • rate. As the runaway reached Cary, he , collided with the team of Cole's Express, , passing up Cary, which brought him to a stand. Result, big crowd, damaged har ness and a badly hurt mule. ; Foreign Commerce. —Six foreign and , two American vessels were entered from | foreign ports during the month of October, , bringing with them merchandise valued at - $31,50!). ; One foreign and lour American vessels i were cleared for foreigu countries with | exports valued at $184,450. , The duties on merchandise imported for ) ■ October were heavier than for any month during the past year. Lady Injured.—About dusk yester- ' day afternoon, on Broad street, between i ' i Third and Fourth, an elderly lady attempt ' |ed to alight from one of the street cars re - turning from Holloywood. The boy pre- : maturely gave the signal to start, and the > lady fell, her hand catching in the iron • guard which passengers take hold of in get- . I ting on or off. She was dragged some ten i • or fifteen feet before the driver could make ■ another stop. The affair created conside rable excitement lor a time. The lady, ! i whose name we did not learn, seemed to > be considerably injured. I To the Rescue! City.— i The Democrats are bringing to the polls all - the halt, lame, blind, sick and crippled. I They arc united in an effort to defeat the • party of freedom. Let every man go to r work, and see that no one remains at 1 home. "Go for 'em," run, jump, and ■ crawl if necessary, and get every Republi can to vote our.. LOCAL Mil is —Weather splendid to-.laj . Hright sun, balmy air. —The regular full torn, of tlie Circuit Court met in ManeheJitor on Monday. —A iiiblc Society, auxiliary to tho A'ii ginia Bible Society, was organized in .Man chester last Sunday. —Mrs. L. w. Bennett, who was so dreadfully burned some time since, died in Chester last Thursday. —The brig "Romance," from Nevassa, arrived ycstei-day with a cargo of guano, consigned to the "Southern Fertilizing com pany." —Tobacco alley, between Main and Franklin and Locust alley and Fifteenth street ( is in a very filthy condition, and the attention of the ward scavenger is called to the fact. —The members of Crystal Temple of Honor and Temperance, proposing to get up a library, ask that contributions uf books be left with Mr. Win. 11. Pleasants, at his office. —Rev. J. R. Garlick baptized two per sons at the Leigh street Baptist, church on Wednesday night and one on Sunday morning. Forty persons have been added to this church by baptism during the last four weeks. —It is stated that a large majority of tho judges failed to appear at the appointed time during the late fair, and that substi tutes had to be hastily appointed. Conse quently complaints are mado of soiho of the decisions. —On Sunday morning a youth named M.Moore, who lives on Church Hill, was painfully injured while jumping over the iron railing around a grave in St. John's church-yard. One of the bars entered his body just below the breast bone, inflicting a painful wound, —Yesterday morning, two little children of Mrs. Anne M. Burrrows, of Caroline county, who is stopping at Mrs. S. B. Hicks', 4 10 First street, were badly scalded. The accident was caused by an awkward servant upsetting a stove. I'he children were both under three years of age. —Capt. C. 11. Epps, the police officer in charge of the Fair Grounds, has in his pos session half a dozen pocket-books found there during the Fair. All of them seemed to belong to persons living in the country. The owners can have them by writing to or calling upon Capt. Kpps and proving pro perty. Demo c racy Stripped of its "Bloomer."—For some time the Democ racy of Richmond has been gorgeously ar rayed in "Bloomer" costume, which has been so very attractive, from the knee down, as to result in Republican defeats. This costume, though cut and made by v Republican tailor, was only of service to Democracy, because it "lit" Republicanism very badly. A short time ago it was sent to North Carolina, and although telegraph ed for and expected on the 5 o'clock train this morning, we understand it failed to come to time. As an evidence of its being anticipated by Democracy, if our readers will glance over the list of appointments of Republican judges, they will perceive that one "Beverly Bloomer" is set down as a judge at Jim Fisher's precinct, Monroe ward. Wo do not know who is acting in this very honorable gentleman's stead, but wo do hope we have not swapped the devil for a witch. Our party has calculated on reducing, at this precinct alone, the Democratic major ity by at least 300 unless, indeed, there is still an "Arnold" in the field. As sure as the sun shines some of the past villainy of Democracy will be discov ered, and if it is, and Judge Bond does not send some of the actors in a suit of stripes to Albany, then, indeed, have we mistaken the man. Look sharp. Republicans, or rascality will accomplish what a lack of votes will fail to do. Chancery Court of Richmond.— Judge Fifzhugh, Monday, November I), 1871.—The following cases were disposed of: Jacobs aud wife vs. The German liuild ing Association No. 2. Decree dissolving injunction and dismissing cause witli costs. Neeson, Jackson, George L. Christian and Meredith, counsel. Shriver vs. Atlec and others. Decree concerning report of commissioner, and directing a sale of the property in tho bill ■and proceedings mentioned. Howard and Wise, p. q. Kinniards vs. Kinniards. Decree refer ring the cause to a commissioner for en quiry and report, .li.hn_.lon and Williams, and Sands and Leake, counsel. An Apology to the Republican Party.—A friend of ours requested us yesterday, to state there would be a Re publican meeting last night at a place called "Houck's Hall," on Broad street. We regret to find this a mistake, as the party is usually more select in choosing a place to hold its meetings. Seriously, we are at a loss to know which would bo most damaged by meeting there, Houck's Hall or the Republican party ; neither of them being top respectable in Richmond. A number of our friends express great, indignation this morning at our mistake. They declare no authority was given any one to say the party would hold, a -au .ting at such a place. Well Done, Good and Faithful Servants.—We have good reports from a number of our Republican judges and challengers, several of whom are acting fearless of the threats and intimidations of our enemies. Among the number, our young and gallant friend Henry 11. Wells, Jr., is a trump. He was the choice of the party for the place of judge at the cele brated Fisher precinct, where Democratic majorities are made to suit circumstances ; but then our noble judge " couldn't see it." Henry has two good eyes, one on each side of his nose, and if tricks are not vain where he is to-day, Democracy may have our best hat. Are They True or False ?—A card is in circulation, containing quotations from the great Know-Nothing speeches of Ra leigh T. Daniel, delivered in 1855. If these charges are true, wo cannot imagine how any foreigner or Catholic can vote for him. If they are false, a great outrage has been perpetrated against Mr. Daniel. They are said to be based on the testimony of a prominent Irish "Conservative" of Rich mond. Hark! to the Battle Cry of FREEDOM.—Freedmen and freemen, your liberties are at stake ; ignorant policemen are trying to intimidate and frighten you from the polls. Obey the laws, but never give up a right. The struggle is between political slavery and liberty. Who will choose the latter, let him be not idle, but work. To the Republican Voters ol' lticliinoml. If there is a Republican in this city <n- . titled to vote and has not done so yet, we bog hint to go at once to the polls and oxer- i cisc the duty ..nil (In- privilege of every free ' man. We have not failed to observe that our opi.oiionts are actively working for their ticket. They will have no laggards to-day. I 'I. (he polls, then, every Republican TO- '. ter in the city. Let nothing keep you ; away, if you are a legal voter. One vote ! may|decide the contest. There is time j while the sun shines, but the earlier you I get your vote in the better. You can then have time to hunt up some one else who has not voted. Be firm but respectful in the exercise of I | your rights. There is no occasion foi ex- j eitement, but there is every occasion in tho . world for firmness, decision ami zeal for ! the good cause. ___■>. How is That nut I.ilitkV— Rathe- Steep .'—We saw a gentleman ordered from ' /-■telle's Restaurant last night, who was ! ; charged with "talking politics," although : j he was taking supper with one of tho eandi- I dates. Well! If politics isn't becoming disre putable, we are mistaken, if men are to be ordered from a public eating ami drinking house for mentioning the subject. This is one of the results of monopolies, since it was but a short timo ago that no- i lliteness was plentiful, now it is at a dis-! count. Wont Johnson, or somebody else, open j an eating-house where gentlemen will be I allowed to discuss, in a quiet manner, pub- I lie matters without the fear of insult ? Perhaps it was known this gentlleman j was a Republican, which accounts for the ' milk in the cocoanut, Dead.—We regret to announce the j death of I '01. B. ... Maddux, father of Hon. Samuel F. Maddox, at the residence of the ! latter, in I 'liestor. Col. Maddox was a most estimable gen- ! tleman, of remarkable attainments and in formation. For nearly a quarter of a cen tury ho was connected with ihe old United States army, ami funis _- part, of its his tory. We tender to our friend, his son, now so sorely distressed, our heartfelt con dolence. ('..!. Maddox died a pure and earnost Christian. The funeral will take place al. Chester to-raorrow morning. i'Vionds of the family are respectfully in vited to attend. Police Court— Justice J. J. White Presiding. —The following cases were dis posed of this moi-ning: James Ryan, charged with creating a disturbance on the street. Fined $2. Rosa King, charged witli feloniously seizing, taking and secreting from Rachel Jones, one Judith Jones, the child of the said Rachel Jones, she having the lawful custody and care of the said child. Dis charged. T. 11. Bramleit. charged with interfering with Policeman O'Connor in the discharge of his duties. Discharged. Thomas Carroll, charged with unlawfully and feloniously shooting Isabella Anglo. Case continued till Saturday next. Theodore Scott, charged with stealing J. 4.5., the property of ]■]. Terry. Dis charged ; no evidence whatever to* sustain the charge. Candidates. Attention !— We have several times charged that by fraud and other unfair means, the Republican party of Riclnnond has been cheated out of the results of the election. It is the in tention of tho Democrats to do the same thing again, this time, if necessary. The law allows each party to have two of Iheir j members to see the ballots counted. Let tho Republican candidates at once select j two men to go to each precinct and demand I their admission, as provided by law. A ' failure to do this, puts it iv the power of the Dcmocnats to swindle us as they have done heretofore. Brag's a Cood Don, But Hold Fast's a Better One.—Let Democrats brag as much as they choose, but it is the duty of every Republican to go silently to work. Work, and the greatest number of votes is what should win. Let its try it this time, as I'loomer is not here. There's Danger Aukad.—Demo crats with fifteen shillings are running about offering to bet on ;"iOO majority for their ticket. This seems to be tho general majority determined upon. To prevent this, or even any majority, let every Repub lican vote. Look out I'oit Rascality. Had while men are taking advantage of colored men by giving them "bogus" Republican i tickets. If you can't read yourself, get i some one who you can "swar by" to tell you what is on the ticket before you deposit it. !-OB____ Work At Man. _u.kti.i;.- At 12 o'clock wo had cheering news from Manchester. Well informed parties tell us our ticket at that hour was about one hun dred and fifty ahead. This need not pre vent Republicans from working. _____ —_—, Look our for Deceivers.—The Democrats are thronging the polls, and wo are sorry to say they are inducing some colored men to vote their ticket. Whether this is done fairly or not, we do not know, but it is tho duty of Republicans to see that none of the colored men are deceived. Li.<"H T R.:.--<!. M. Arnold, Esq. will lecture iv tho Third-Street .Methodist church to-morrow night, at 71 o'clock, under the auspices Ol the Attacks Guard. Mr. Ar nold is a gentleman of lino abilities, and our colored friends should not fail to hear him on this occasion. TwEi-vk Hundred Ooeored Repub lican Votes not Yht Pc_i-_n , .-*-There are at this hour twklve m .ni>ri:i> colored Republican voters, who have not yet offered to east their ballots. For shame! colored men, to your work and let it not be said that you were the cause of the defeat of the pui'ty of justice ami IVe, doir. To REl'l'iil.K'A.N.s.-Our men are not doing their duty. The enemy is polling his whole strength. Not one will be left by the closing of the [mils who has not voted. Awake Republicans! and to the breach. Why stand vo here idle? while your enemy is engaged in your destruction. "Votethe Conservative Ticket,'' \V r e see a heap of carriages driven around the city to-day bearing the abop inscrip tion, and but few saying "vote tne Repub lican ticket." What a pity! What a pity!! The Democrats are voting all tlieir force. Look out for Ri.pkatei.s. Henrico County Court — Judge E. C. Minor Presiding. —This court met yes ! terday and appointed Mr. John 11.

In recent conversations with those who understand the nature and extent of the Ku-Klux organizations, the President has expressed his determination to use all the powers given him under the laws to root out and destroy it entirely. He declared that its acts strike at the foundation of all society and disorder, aud that the crimes that have been daily committed by its members for many months past entitle them to neither mercy nor consideration. He is sworn to enforce the laws, and will do his utmost to put an end to the organ ized system of murder, whipping aud terror which prevailed in tho States recently in rebellion. The President declares that he was loth to believe in tho formidable character of the conspiracy ; that he reluctantly recom mended repressive legislation, and did not do so before he was fully convinced of the nature of tlieir movements ; but that ho is now fully determined to use every means under the constitution and laws to defeat them. The Department of Justice has a complete secret system at its command, and the President has, of course, been ful ly informed of al! its operations which are especially directed toward the Ku-Klux movements. If the public could be in formed of the character of this information, it would be greatly startled. The sub-committees, now in session in Georgia and A labama, are reported, by ad vice., just received here, to be making tho rough work, and obtaining a great deal of valuable testimony. The condition of Georgia is shown to be much worse than it was six months since, so liir as the mani festation of organized hatred to the govern ment is concerned. Jt is also reported that tho testimony recently taken, and other knowledge in possession of the government, point in support of a sus picion long entertained that Gen. Da. Bose, a member of Congress, and the son-in-law of Robert Toombs, is chief of tho "Invisi ble Empire" fur the State of Georgia. It is in tho district ho represents that a ma jority of those who have fled from South Carolina have found refuge. The charge against Dv Bose will probably be made the subject of investigation by the House when Congress assemble!. _■__. Was It Fire '.' Much has boon said of the intense heat ( f the tires which destroyed Peshtigo, _____..• kaune, Williamsonville, kc, but all that has been said cannot give the stranger even a faint conception of the reality. The heat has been compared to that engendered by a flame concentrated on an object by a blow pipe, but oven that would not account for some of the phenomena. For instance, we have in our possession a copper eeut, taken from the pocket of a dead man iv the Peshtigo Sugar Bush which will illustrate our point. ."This cent has been partially fused but still'retains its round form and the inscription upon it is legible. Others in tbe same pocket were par tially melted off, and yet the clothing and body of the man were not even singed. We do not know any way to account for this, unless, as is asserted by some, the tornado and fire were accompanied by electrica 1 phe nomena. The house, barn and fences of Mr. Hill, of the upper Sugar Bush, were burned, and Mr. Hill and his family all lost. By the side of the family was a narrow alley, just wide enough to drive through. In this' al ley stood a wagon, and while the barn and fence were entirely destroyed, the wagon box was not even singed. Alf Phillips's house, in the upper Sugar Bush, was destroyed, but the family es caped. They state that two opposite cur rents of air apparently struck the house, which was sixteen by twenty-four feet, and carried it bodily into the air they think 1(10 feet. In the air it burst into flames, and iv a few minutes was entirely destroyed. The house was nut on (ire when it lelt the ground. We do not believe that any other ex planation of the great calamity can be made, than that it was caused by fire, wind and electricity.— Green Bay Ad-cocate. loo—lnvol.
