The Grbat Unrivaled New
York Circus—What the Rich
mond Public may Expect from
the Munificence of Mr. L. B.
Lent.—The event to which all Rich
mond—the old and tho young, the
healthy and the infirm, tho Conservative
and Republican alike—are looking, is the
coming of the greatest of northern shows,
Mr. L. B. Lent's New York "Leviathan
Universal Living Exposition," which pitches
tent at the corner of Second and Leigh
streets on the 29th inst., and continues for
two days in our midst. The reason so much
interest is taken in the appearance of this
monster exhibition, is the fact that it con
sists of the only original New York Circus,
combined with one of the largest menage
ries ever seen, a museum of rare merit and
largest size, and many other attractions of
a less startling character.
It should bo borne in mind by the reader
in canvassing the probable benefits to be
derived from a visit to this entertainment,
that it is under the direct superintendence
of Mr. L. B. Lent himself, the only man
who ever succeeded in establishing r. circus
on a permanent footing in the metropolis of
America. His performances thorc were
thronged by the elite of the city and sur
rounding country, and the burning of tho
building in which they wero given awak
ened more real sorrow in the bosom of
young New York, than would havo been
occasioned had every other place of
amusement in the city have been swept
away by the flames. This catastrophe,
whilst sincerely regretted, and viewed al
most as a public calamity in Gotham, has
benefitted the world outside the great city,
by allowing the millions who have never
had an oppoitunity of visiting New
York, the chance to see al! and more
than was ever enjoyed by tho population
of Manhattan Island. This peerless show,
combining circus, menagcrio and museum
in one vast caravan —oniployins an army
of men and horses, and re<|iiiiing the ex
penditure of a moderate fortune every
week of its existence to keep it afloat—
will exhibit, be it remembered, on Mon
day and Tuesday, the 29th and 30th, of
September. -~
Important Decision of the
Court of Appeals.—ln the court of
appeals, in session in Staunton, in the case
I Johnson vs. Scott, tho decision ol the
circuit court of Rockingham has been
reversed, and tho bill dismissed. A
gentleman named Blasgow, of Rockbridge,
died, leaving his slaves to be free at his
daughter's or wife's death, whichever
lived lougest, and also leaviug $3,000
with his executrix to be put at com
pound interest, " until such time as my
slaves may be entitiod to their freedom un
der this will, " the total to be given the
' slaves when freed, and expended in settling
them in Ohio. After tho emancipation
proclamation Jack Scott and the other
slaves proclaimed their freedom, aud sued
the daughter—Mrs. Johns—the survivor,
for the $3,000 and interest. The circuit
dourt of Rockbridge decided in favor of
tin: late slaves. The court of appeals held
' that as ;tho legatees were not named, but
' described as a class of certain character,
and sustaining certain relations to the tos
• tator, in order to be entitled to his bounty,
• they must clearly answer such description,
■ i. c., be freedmen of the testator, acquir
ing their right to freedom under his last
' will, al tho death of the survivor of his
wife and daughter, and as they did not ant
. swor to the description, they could not
, be entitled. Tho decision of tho cir
cuit court was reversed and the bill dis
missed.

new paper in tbe nourishing town of Salem,
. to be called the Salem Register. He has
.'. been able to secure of Messrs. Pelouse at
c Co. a complete outfit for The Register upon
such terms as prevented his going farther
i. north. This speaks well for our city type
foundry. The Salem Register will be in
dependent in pontics, and from our inti- I

' The Ladies.—The statute of limita

I : years of the late war as regards debts, we
can sco no good reason why it may not be
, made to apply equally as well to the. age of
j unmarried ladies. At least those of tho
present generation should not be counted
with the old maids until they have reached r ,
' the age of 29 years. Ladies, however, c
whether married or single, so seldom reach °
anything like 29 years of age that discount
ing four years in their favor may be an it
entirely useless proceeding. En

Salem, Virginia, Scptemher 19.—
The campaign was opened in Roanoke for
tho first time to-day by speaking at this
point. Hon. Charles P. RamsdeU, our j
candidate for lieutenant-governor, -led oil,
followed by Colonel Robert W. Hughes
in one of his irresistible arrays of logic,
figures, and common sense. The audi
ence was very enthusiastic. Mr. Rams
dell spoke for an hour with great effect,
setting forth tho piinciples of the great
Republican party in language that is more
than useless to attempt to describe in 0.
mere telegraphic synopsis. Taoud applause
was again and again sent forth by
the most enthusiastic crowd, though he
was several times interrupted by a few
students of Roanoke college, the institu
tion whose claims to the land-scrip Mr-
RamsdeU, a stranger, st nobly fought for
in 1872. He was compelled to pause to
wait until tho interruption ceased, so great
was the contusion. Notwithstanding tho
confusion ho redeemed himself of tho
charge made by Colonel Gil—at) of carpet
bagger, made a few weeks ago to an as
sembly here. The sober-thinking men of
tho community gave marked attention to
his solid and well-founded remarks.
Colonel Hughes refused to speak until
the interruption ceased, which was stopped
by a Democratic friend of Colonel Hughes
of influonce. His time was limited on
account of having to leave on the train to
fill an appointment at Wytheville to-mor
row. He spoke half an hour lo a very
attentive audience. He threw some veiy
destructive shells into the Democratic
ranks. He put forth many unanswerable
questions that will tell in the November
election. Everybody seemed highly
pleased at his most entertaining remaiks.
He has made many friends by his eloquent
words and sound logic.
X very thing passed off peaceably.
