Tun Jlk.vnest Man.-—lt turns out,
alter all, that tho meanest man is not the
man wo referred to the other day, who
split up his iirst wife's tombstone. Uur
rowa in even meaner than ho. liurrows
was an inveterate tobacco-chewcr, but as
his wife detested the practice, and intide
homo ternpeatoiu and stormy for him
when he indulged in Iho habit there,
he alwayu chewed when away dur
ing the day, and declared to his
wile that he hud slopped permanently. ]!nt
one evening, upon entering the front
door nnd drawing out his handker
chief, he aceidenlally nulled out his paper of
tobacco, and without noticing it left it lying
on the Hour. When liiiirows set down to
his tea, his wife walked in with the tobacco
in her hand, and looking lint-rows firmly in
the oyc, said, "Do you know who that be
longs to ?" With great presence 'of mind
liurrows turned scowling to his oldest boy
and said, with a severe voico : "Immortal
Mars! Is it possible that you have begun to
chew tobacco, you young reprobate?
Where'd you get that nasty stuff?
What d'yoti mean by such conduct
you young villain. Haven't 1
told you often enough to let tobacco
alone? Oommcrc to me, or I'll tear the
jacket off of you." And as ho spoke the
stern parent made a grab at the boy and
dragged him out in tho entry where he
chastised him with a cane. Then Bur
rows threw tho tobacco over the fence,
where he went out and got it tho next
morning and enjoyed it during the day.
"Merciful Moses," he exclaimed when he
told us about it, "what would 1 have done
if my children had all been girls? It
makes an old father's heart glad when he
feels that he has a boy he can depend 011
in such emergencies."— Max Adder.
-«_».
At the banquet of Ihe American pomo
logical society in Boston recently, the Hon.
Kdward Daniels, of Virginia, in responding
to a toast to his state, said: "Whatever
dillerences, whatever transient disruptions,
whatever temporary difficulties may havo
passed over the pleasant relations b-ween
this and the other statos, they are now
passed forever. [Tremendous applause
and three hearty cheers.] Deep down in
the hearts of the people of Virginia, in
her valleys and plains and on her mountain
sides, there are hearts as loyal as beat
anywhere under the .sky of America be
tween the oceans. [Applause.] Up
every mountain, through every valley
and plain runs the golden chain"of ad'ec
tion, patriotism, love for our country and
our country's ilag, wliich in tho early days
bound the states together. [Applause.]
The most glorious among the inllticnces
which are bringing us together are those
which sprung from such great efforts as that
which has called us together 011 this occa
sion ; efforts which relate to the material
development of tho resources of our com
mon country, which will hotter tho physi
cal condition, and thereby the intellectual
and spiritual condition of men."— National
licpublican, Washington, I). C.

WiIFORMATION I'O VOTKItS.
DAY OF ELECTION.
The election occurs on the -Ith day ot
November, it being tho first Tuesday after
Ihe first Monday in (he month.
VOTEKS
must bo male citizens, twenty-one years
of age, resident in the i-tato twelve months,
in the election dislrict three months, and
duly registered. The following persons only
are disqualified. First, idiots and lunatics.
Second. Persons convicted of bribery in
any election, embezzlement of public funds,
treason, or felony. Third. All persons
who have sent or .accepted a challenge to
iight a duel, or aided or assisted in any
manner in fighting a duel, since the adop
tion of the present constitution.
Polls are opened at sunrise and closed at
sunset.
The ballot must be one white paper
ticket, and contain on Its face tho names of
the candidates, written or printed, for
whom the elector wishes to vote, and des
ignating the oilieo for which tho elector
wishes them chosen. If a voto be chal
lenged, tho voter is required to swear that
ho has tho qualifications stated above;
that he is duly registered in his own pro
per name ; that he is the person he repre
sents himself to be, and that he has not
already voted at the present election.
ItWIISTRATION.
The above are all the points needed to be
observed, except tho vitally important re
quirements of Registration and Transfer,
which however are few and simple. Kvery
voter on coming of age, or completing tho
required term of residence ia his state and
voting precinct, should go to the Registrar
(there is one at every voting place) and
see to it personally that he is regularly'
registered, giving under oath his na«o, age,
occupation and the length of time of his
residence in Ihe state, county, city or
town ; if in a city, giving the name of the
street and number of the houso where he
resides. This may be done on the
second Tuesday in May of each year
at every voting precinct, iv the state, and
on any day previous to ten days beforo the
election iv Novcinber in tho country. In the
cities and towns of over two thousand in
habitants the registrars may sit three days
for purposes of 'registration ten days before
each election. Bat tho voter to be safe
ought to perfect his registration on the first
day of the sitting of the registrars, which
they aro required by law to advertise for
ten days, by posting written or printe<_Tno
tices at ten or more public places in each
precinct before each sitting.
TRANSI-I—.
Whenever a voter changes his residenco
he may get from the registrar of tho dis
trict from which ho moves a certificate
that he was there duly registered, and
that on his removal his name had been
erased from the registration books. Snch a
certificate is what is known as a transfer.
This transfer may be presented to the
registrar of the district to which
the voter has moved at any time even on
the day of election in the country. liut in
cities or towns containing over two thou
sand inhabitants, it must be presented on the
tenth day preceding the election, or if the
registrars sit so long en the two following
days above named, preceding the election.'
It is believed that the above contains all
the information needed for the most care
less voter.
, WII-W TO REGISTER.
*♦ Any person entitled to voto may, uinJci
— the law aa it now stands, register his name
1, on the second Tuesday in May of each
_: year, in his proper voting precinct. and on
J, any day thereafter prior to ten days be fori
Ihe election in November. All voters should
)H see that their names aro registered on 01
before the 24th of October next.

IK bur*, July 30th, 1878.
is The Republicans of Virginia, in state
'"• convention assemled, do now formerly
m> announce their principles to the voters of
the commonwealth. They reaflirm and rcit
» crate their platform of 1572. They cn
-3 dorse and approve the administration of
1 resident Grant in the past, and pledge it
if their support for the future.
• t TAXATION.
[£ Wo aro in favor of tho ad valorem
system of taxaion, as adopted by
tho state convention, as tho only just anil
equitable system, and pledge ourselves to
d its support and enforcement.
Ie The tide-water population of the stato
have paid without complaint the taxes
, necessary for tho support of tho state
J debt contracted for public improvement,
L from which they derive no local advantage,
'f and aro entitled lo demand a repeal of any
• law levying a tax upon any interest or
property not general in this coinmon
" s wealth.
a iic . aoiV cd, That tho Republican party of
V irginia, through its representatives in tho
' state and national government, recommend
" the total abolition of the tax on tobacco as
J soon as it can be done without detriment
; to tho national finances.
INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT.
r The greatest good for the greatest
, number, being one of the principles of
J Republicans, wo aro in favor of such a
. system of public improvement as shall
, best secure that result. The necessities of
. not only Virginia, but of tho whole coun
[ try demand increased facilities for cheap
, transportation. Wo aro therefore in favor
I of the early completion of the James
( River and Kanawha canal, and call
, upon the Congress of the United aStates to
, take this matter into consideration at tho
i next session, and mako an appropriation for
the same. P.olioving it to be a national nc
, cessity, it should be a national highway.
, We pledgo the Republicans of Virginia to
; uso every endeavor to secure its early com
, pletion. We also favor such a "liberal
, system of railroad i_provemeut as shall
\ tend to develop all sections of our state,
and we call upon the voters of this com
' monwcalth to unite with us in securing
these desired results.
THE PUBLIC DEBT.
The Republican party of Virginia, in
common with the national Republican par
| ty, is opposed to all forms of repudiation,and
favor such a financial policy as shall tend to
the payment of the public debt of the stato
without being oppressive upon her citizens.
We regard the expenses of our state gov
ernment as disproporlioned to the available
resources of the people, and demand that
they shall bo made moro fully to coniirm
thereto. Wo disapprove all extra com
pensation, and favor economy in govern
ment, state and national; that we deem
the act known as the "funding bill" as
impolitic, unjust and oppressive, and en
acted solely in the interest of bondholders,
regardless of the condition of the state re
sources ; and we are in favor of and
demand tho submission of the question of
the financial obligation of West Virginia to
Virginia to tho supremo court of the United
States for decision.
MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT.
We are in favor of the development '
of tho material resources of our state,
wliich, ui'der the rule of the Conservative
party and its predecessors, have lain dor
mant. Tho mines of coal, iron and other
minerals, the vast water-power, and tho
many other material resources of the
state, which exist in rich profusion on every
hand, need but enterprise and capital to
develop them, and thus make Virginia one
of the greatest manufacturing states in tho
Union. To this end, wo are in favor of
such liberal legislation as shall tend to en- j
caurgo the investment of 1 in mining
and manufacturing operations, and of gen- j
eral laws of incorporation, together with j
such a liberal spirit on the part of our peo- |
pie as shall invito men of enterprise to
come and dwell among us.
REFORM IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF
JUSTICE.
Wo are in favor of reform in the
administration of justice in this stato, and
an enforcement of the state constitution in
this respect, which will secure impartial
justice to all, irrespective of race, color,
condition or political sentiment.
We favor the election of the president,
vice-president, and all other otllcers of the
government, as far as possible, by the di
rect vote of Iho people.
ARIiI'T'RATION. j
We approve and endorso the noble
and humane policy inaugurated by Gene
ral Grant's administration, whereby all :
international disputes shall bo made the
subject of arbitration, thereby preventing
the dread havoc of war. .
FEDERAL COURTS OPEN TO ALL. \
The Federal courts should be accessible J
in all tho states, to all citizens on appeal j
for redress of wrongs or protection of
rights, in cases, where, upon a proper
showing, equity demands it.
REFORM IN STATE LAWS.
We demand reform in state laws in
order to secure fair elections, by .the
abolition of partisan supervisors, to enable ,
every voter to exercise the right of suf- ;
frage according to tho dictates of his own <
conscience.
