ELECTION-DAY :
TUESDAY NOVEMBER 4. 1873.
wit at oi.o-mm: whium and na.
tional democrats should do.
We have repeatedly charged that the
Conservative party of Virginia was noth
ing more nor less than the old Whig party
secessionized by and brought into affiliation
with the Democrats party of the state ;
that the original integrity, uprightucss and
nationality of the Whig party had been
overborne, if not entirely clashed out, by
the weight of secession influence, after its
last great struggle for national psccndancy,
in 1832; and that, afterwards, the great
body of tho party in this state either sur
rendered themselves up to seces
siouism, or fought it hopelessly
out until 18G1, when they reluctantly
embraced the foul political Hecali,
at whose polluted altars they havo since
worshipped, as if she had been their
chosen divinity from the outset. Every j
—MM was then made to bow at her political |
shrine, and every mouth compelled to
utter her praises, as effectually as if she
had taught her new votaries their confes
sion of faith at the original orgies of seces
sion, when young Yancey's lips were first
touched by that coal of maddened fire
which was ultimately destined to set the
nation in a blaze, if not to extinguish the
last vestige of liberty upon this conti
nent.
All this we havo repeatedly charged,
and our Conservative contemporaries as
repeatedly denied. But no party barometer
has ever more faithfully indicated the pres
sure of the political atmosphere than that
in which the mercurial columns of the old
Whig party of Virginia wero finally weighed
down by the constraining force of seces
sion. It was the unsheathed dagger of
that old political hag, clenched firmly io
her defiant grasp, and menacingly shaken j
from behind the secession curtain 3, that
forced tho old Whig leaders—those
who had fought against the foul
lleeat6 from the first—to plunge
healloni; into the vortex sho had
prepared for their reception in 1801. The
time had como when they no longer dared
• to face the music of the Union, especially
while the uplifted dagger of secession
threatened to drink the first as well as the
last globule of their recreant blood ; and
so they plunged in-not into tho swollen
Tiber to breast it manfully for political as
cen.laucy, but into the the maddened vortex
of disunion, from which thero was no es
cape except through a sea of brothers'
blood.
This is the history of tho old Whig
parly of Virginia as secessionized
and brought into subjection to
the Democratic party ; fust, to
fyht tho battles of that party for the des
truction of tho Union, and, afterwards, to
be christened into the faith and spirit, if
not tho letter, of Conservatism, which has
proved only another name for secession, or
rather only another pretext for keeping
alive the spirit of secession, even after its
riddled carcase had polluted a hundred
battle-fields, and loaded down tho national
atmosphere with the stench of half a
million corpses, sacrificed to the Moloch
of Democratic hate against the Union.except
as administered for its own sectional ends
and purposes. Of course, thero wero some
Democrats—some honorablo exceptions
in the state—who detested the plotters of
treason in their party, and struggled
hard and long, but always ineffect
ually, against the consummation of their
traitorous des ; gns. These, with the leaders of
tho old Whig party, can have but one reason
to-day for their identification with tho Con
servative party of the state, and that is the
cowardly one of fearing to identify them
selves with tho great national party of the
Union, because the negroes in the sta'e vote
with it !
We need not charge pusillanimity and
moral cowardice upon thoso who thus act,
or who thus fear to act, for their own con
donee:! must prefer the indictment and force
a secret confession of guilt, without a syl
lable of accusation from us. All old-line
Whigs and true national, or old Douglas,
Democrats in the state, should be acting
with the Republican party of Virginia to
day. They have no sympathies in common
with the party which makes secession—the
hated thing into which they were dragooned
in 1861—tho crowning honor of its candi
dates in the present political canvass. Tho
malignant spell or conjuration fatally
fastened upon them in 1801, is, or should
be, effectually broken by this time. They
no longer want the oue tooth and one eye
of the secession Gorgon, and should at
once exchange them for tho helmet of the
Union, the winged sandals, and tho magic
wallet, in imitation of Perseus, the master
hero of tho skies. Thoy can have no en
thusiasm aroused by the appeals of Gene
ral Kemper to his "secession record,"
nor can they desire to retain any further
connection with a party which is just as
malignant as ever in the animosities and
hates it exhibits ag*inst the Union.
Let them come, then, into the Republi
can party where they belong, and bo not
only with us, but of us, as victory shall
' porch triumphantly upon our standards.
Let them not bo laggards in well doing,
nor let tho day pass without its incumbent
lesson of duty. Let them trim their na
• tional lamps, and be ready to meet both
the bride and the bridegroom, in the new
espousals of the stato to the Union. Let
them revise and correct their political
; creed, and in whatever article it is tainted
with secession, or the spirit that would
breed it, abscind»nud cut it off as a dia
bolical excrescence to which the surgical
knife should be instantly applied. Do this
and you will bo with us, and your vote
will help to swell the majority of
Hughes, and mako our victory a crowning
one for yourselves and for Virginia,
That the Evangelical Alliance, now in
session at New York, is an assemblage of
more than ordinary talent none will deny;
that the deliberations will accomplish any
thing practical in the warfare against sin,
which piety prosecutes in this as in foiraer
ages, may well be doubted.
The earlier discussions were general and
perhaps satisfactory, to those who fel 1
called upon to relate their experience, bu
it is clear that somo felt it best to act upon
the old adge, "Do at Rome as Romans
'• do," forgetful of their home walk and
" conversation.
For instance, when n prominent gentlc
e man declaims before tho Alliance in favor
• of the beauty aud iodispensability of univer
f sal Christian love and fellowship, whilo at
l home he is commonly supposed to hold
; the belief that thero was no salvation out
-1 side his particular creed, and none for Rc
i publicans even when they profess that
f creed, it is difficult to avoid recalling what
s St. Paul says as to the valuelessnes of all gifts
i and efforts, aye, even sufferings, without
t charity, and asking which is light—St.
" Paul or the reverend orator ?
Again, when another prominent gentle
-7 man would use "apostolic knocks" to rend
7 certain ties which exist (wisely or nn
' wisely as men judge) between church and
! state in a foreign country, bis sincerity
r may well be doubted, when the records
show that this same gentleman did not
deem it improper to unite church and
' state in his own person ; and he will not
3 venture denial that his and other churches
have been for years past used as levers to
overturn established free government, and
' on its ruins build up the worst lorm of an
1 oligarchy.
' This may not be insincerity or simply
c the common differences between precept
• and practice, but it may bo really the ini
tial movemont toward that grand millenni
i urn which will speedily ensue when minis
' tar and flock determine, Jike St. Paul, to
r teach and hear "nothing but Jesus Christ,
" and him crucified." Lot us hope the
J latter ; and unless wo are greatly mista
j ken, Satan has much stronger and active
1 allies than Pio Nino, or the entire Catholic
■ Church; and it will hasten tho desired
' millennium, if, instead of tho Evangelicals
1 and Catholics turning their guns upon each
i other, they all unite their forces for a
t combined attack on intemperance, politi
-3 cal animosity, and infidelity. Tho world
1 will certainly then be bettered, and many
3 who are now staggering to perdition un
-1 cared for, will be led into peaceful paths
c which will bring them, it may be hoped,
1 to eternal safety.
f _
1 In the history of ths state no man has ever
mail" so active and brilliant a canvass as (leu
e eral Kemper. Like a resplendent meteor he has
J illumined the western division of the state in his
rapid transit from the extreme southwest to its
1 most extreme northern limits.—Whig.
Why not publish one of his speeches,
i then, and let the people of the state judge
of his splendid meteoric qualities as an
orator? The Whig's "resplendent me
teor" is a good metaphor, but not quite
f equal to the "live-thunder" one of Tho
1 Enquirer, in which the oratorical General
i was made to leap from peak to peak of the
) Alleghanies, and cut all manner of intol
- lectual capers among the clouds. The
> Whig has a übiquitous reporter, gifted
f with a- most imaginative, if not flighty
l quill, constantly attending this "resplend
ent meteor," and why—oh why—doesn't
; ho vouchsafe us one flash of its meteoric
1 splendor? Must we be compelled to ex
-1 claim in regard to this flaming meteor, as
' did the poet addressing the comet of 1811:
1 Oh, on thy rapid prow to glide,
i To sail the boundless skies with thee,
And see thee knock tho stars aside,
I And land them ln r.onentity."
i Wo want one glimpse at least of Ker
n: per's meteoric splendor, and if The Whig
i won't give it us, wo shall havo to give it
f up in despair, and let the comet sail on,
I ploughing the boundless skies, and knock
• ing things into universal smash generally.
• Metaphor is good enough in its way, but wo
f like to run it out into expressive simile,
i and thus exhibit the true metaphorical
gandeur of The Whig.
i —
We wish to call the attention of the
citizens of Virginia, Republicans and Con
servatives both, to one county judge who is
an impartial officer and an honorable man
—one whose action and conduct in the ap
pointment of judges of election is io strik
ing contrast with that of Edmonson of
Rockbridge, and Fry of Russel counties.
In obdience to the law, and in the discharge
of what he conceived to bo his duty. Judge
I. Doderidge Coles, of Pittsylvania, recent
ly requested Judge' L. M. Shumaker, as
chairman of the Republican county com
mittee of Pittsylvania, to furnish him a list
of names of twenty Republicans who
could read and write to be appointed each
a judge of election, at ono of tho twenty!
election precincts in that county. Judge
Shumaker did as requested, and at the
August term of Judge Coles' Court he ap.
pointed all but one, and he had removed
from the township.
Judge Coles is a Conservative, yet com
mands alike the respect of Conservatives,
Democrats, and Republicans—because un
like his superior on the circuit court bench,
(Judge William M. Tredway),;and Edmon
son and Fry, he is an honest man nnd not
a partisan.
The Enquirer renews its appeal to tho |
white women of Virginia to hang their red i
banners on the outer wall, and proffer no J
quarter to the recreant white men who do j "
not register and vote the Bourbon ticket. '
A kovfl Idea, started os a ioke, has Inken
form as a reality .and a committee of three s hard
at work organizing, fir social purposes, an asso
ciation of tHose persons who have been injured
by the New York, New Haven and Hartford
railroad, nnd therefore cripples.
The above paragraph, which is just now
going the rounds of the newspapers, and
which wo clip from the Pittsburgh Com
mercial, is calculated to create an unfavor
able imprcssiou iv regard to one of tho
best managed railroads in the United Statei.
The New York, New Haven, Hartford,
and Springfield railroad is under
the management of the Hon. W. D.
Bishop, formerly commissioner of
patents, and one of the most successful
railroad men in tho country. Since tho
Norwalk disaster, occurring nearly n
quarter of a century, ago, and under tho
"Scuyler fraud" management, no railroad
in the country has shown a smaller per
centage in los'. of life or injury to persons
among passengers, than this road. Tho
reports of tho railroad commissioners of
Connecticut will show that the road, under
Mr. Bishop's management as president,
has transported passengers without per
sonal injury to a single one in ten millions.
We indite this paragraph to correct what
we suspect to bo something moro than a
"malicious joke."
The September meeting of the British
Association for the Advancement of Science
is desciibed in the English papers as " use
ful if not brilliant." There Was no striking
feature in the proceedings, but the genera'
level of tho papers and discussions had
never been higher. The peculiar useful
ness of the British Association, however,
consists in tho stimulus it gives to local in
vestigation, and the local interest excited
in scientific questions. The next year's
meeting will bo held at Belfast, with Dr.
Tyndall as chairman.
We havo now less than a month within
which to do the remaining work of tho
canvass, and it behooves us all to be up
and doing. Whilo our stato candidates
and general canvassers are pressing on the
work at the various prominent points, the
county candidates and canvassers should
explore evory nook and coiner of their
counties, speak from every stump, and see
that every Republican voter is registered.
Cleveland boasts that her homes are
surpassed in comfort and elegance by no
other American city. A very largo pro
portion of the citizens own ther places Or
residence, and these are surrounded in most
cases by grounds tastefully adorned with
shrubs and flowers and shade trees. Let
the wealth and taste of Richmond see to it
that thoy imitate the comfort antl elegance
of the green city of the lakes.
Somi. people's attachments are congenial,
like that of Damon and Pythias ; others
congenital, like that of tho Siamese
twin 3. Tho attachment of tho leading
Bourbon organ of this city to Governor
Walker is manifestly more congenital than
congenial. The " sinews " binding them
together constitute tho chief tie in their
mutual attachment.
