TUESDAY. MAT 11, 1880. MEETING OF STATE CENTRAI, CONSERVA TIVE COMMITTEE.-There will be a meeting oi the State Central Conservatlre Committee at the Exchange Rotel. Richmond on Tuesday May 18 1880, at 8, P. M., for the transaction ol such business as may be necessary, prellmina ■ - - assembling of the State Conservative Eon the next day in the same city. A dance of members ls requested Jno. T. LovK-ii, Chairman. Bigger, Secretary. . m . ■ The Stato Convention. Democratic State convention will meet in Richmond on the 19th inst., and which we hope will be composed of the ablest and wisest men of the party in the State, should nol elect delegates pledged to tha support ol any particular man for the presidency, but should elect able, prudent, and wise delegates who will be disposed tc nominate the best and most available candidate, upon a full, fair, and impar tial consideration after flank and free consultation with the delegates from other States, particularly with the dele gates from the doubtful States in the North and West. The delegates from this State should be free to choose as their best judgments would dictate aftei getting all the information within theii reach after meeting with the delegates from other States, and consulting freely and frankly with them, in an honest comparison of views. They should nominate that candidate who, with the requisite character and qualifications, possesses the greatest popular strength. Delegates should be willing to surrender their personal preferences, and to sup port that candidate who, to the requi site qualifications for the office, unites ' the greatest availability. If the dele gates from all the Slates should thus act, the best nomination will be made, and in November victory will perch upon the Democratic standard. Let Virginia, whose voice is still po tential, arise in the National convention and proclaim in the spirit of true pa triotism that sbe has no personal pref erence in a crisis like this, but that her choice is the best and most available Drowned.—On Sunday of last week, a negro boy named Rust Logan was drowned in North River, a mile from Lexington, while bathing. The Lex ington Gazette says that "a comrade who attempted to rescue him came very near being drowned in the effort; he had to leave the boy to his fate in order to save his own life. Some Cadets who were boating on the river recovered the body. The an nouncement of the drowning was made at the Baptist Church (colored,) the con gregation of which was in session at the time, and nearly the entire body went to the scene of the disaster." ■ . o—♦ — Dr. Hoge Robbed at Jerusalem.— Rev. Dr. Deems, in a letter to a friend in New York, dated at Jerusalem, April 4, says the Rev. Dr. Hoge, of Richmond, Va , who is there, was robbed of a large sum of money and his watch the first night he was in tent. It has led to the arrest of a Turkish soldier. From Jerusalem Dr. Deems goes to the Dead Sea, and thence up through the north of Palestine to Damascus. The first Sunday in July he hopes to be back to New York. ♦ # ♦ A Woman Drowns her Children. —At Perm Van, N. V., yesterday, Mrs. George Woodruff, during the absence of her husband, took her two sleeping chil dren from bed, one aged six the other one year, and drowned them in the cis tern. She was found afterwards by her husband standing in the cistern with the dead baby in her arms. She had left a note indicating her purpose to drown the children and commit suicide rather than endure longer the agony of poverty aud debt. . -_•.—» Sale of the White Sulphur Con firmed.—The sale of the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, which took place on the 31st day of March last, was confirmed by Judge Jackson at Charles ton on Friday week. The purchasers and owners are Mr. W. A. Stuart, of Virginia, Hon. Johnson N. Camden, of Parkerbburg, and Colonel George L. Peyton, of the White Sulphur Springs. The purchasers will proceed at once to improve the property. Death of Col. Thos. B. Bigc-ek.— Col. Thomas B. Bigger, who served in the war of 1812, under Gen. Harrison, was postmaster of Richmond, Va., for more than twenty years, and filled various positions iv the Virginia State government, died, in llicbinond Wed nesday, aged 87 years. Col. Bigger was also one of the oldest Masons in Vir ginia. J. Ran. Tucker for Field.—The Washington correspondent of the State says:—Mt. Tucker, being questioned recently, said : "I am for the best and strongest tuau the Democratic party can nominate." "And who is that?" was asked. "Well in looking over the field I can't overlook Field," said Mr. Tucker.as he adjusted his spectacles. The Lynciiburc; Advance.—The Advance U tbe title of a daily eveniug paper just established in Lynchburg, and edited by Mr. Thos. Whitehead, who was recently the editor-in-chief of the Lynchburg Newt. The local de partment is edited by Mr. John White head. It is an able and spirited paper and deserves to succeed. Fatal Shooting in W. Va.—On Saturday week, at the mouth of Big Sandy, in a difficulty between Will Co pen and Lew Matheny, the latter was shot in the abdomen and died the next day. On Monday; Copen was taken to Charleston and lodged in jail. This af fair caused great excitement in the neighborhood of the occurrence. Buried Alive.—ln Richmond ou last Thursday, Mike McDonald, a labor er, while at work in a culvert was caught by caving earth and killed, being literally buried alive. He died before his fellow-workmen could dig him out. A colored man was also caught by the earth, but escaped without serious in jury. ♦ a > ___ L_« Broken by a Fall.—About a week ago, while Brufl'y Cochran was building a chimney for Henry Clark in the Little Levels in Pocahontas co., W. Va., he fell a distance of 16 feet by which . he had his thigh broken, and was other wise hurt. ■eeting at Winchester. ■ OF DISTINGUISHED MEN. On Monday of last week, a very large Democratic meeting was held at Win chester, which was addressed by Sena tors Voorhees of Indiana, Thurman oi Ohio, and Gordon of Georgia, abstracts of whose speeches, as reported for the Baltimore Sun, are published in this is sue, to which we invite the attention ol our readers. If .there ever was a time when all who are opposed to the dan gerous centralizing doctrines of the Re publican party should act in unison to - gether, irrespective of differences of State policy and other minor differences, now is that time. We cannot believe that many Democrats will prove recreant in this crisis of their country, but believe that all, with very few exceptions, will vote for the nominees of the Cincinnati Convention. If Grant be the Bepubli can nominee, he can be defeated, if the Democrats be united, for it is evident that he is not the choice of the Repub lican States. His strength in the Con vention will come from Democratic States that will not give him electoral votes at the election. These Democratic States may secure his nomination, but they cannot aid in electing him. If they force his nomination, he will be defeat ed, if the Democrats act wisely iv Con vention at Cincinnati. Tbe corruptions of his administrations, and the objec tions to electing any man for a third j term, and the dread of his ambition and proclivity to imperialism, make him ob jectionable to a large element of his own party, and will cause him to be defeated if his nomination be effected through the votes of Democratic States that can not aid in electing him; We hope that 1 Grant will be the Republican nominee. At the election next fall, every friend of free government, it matters not what his opinion, may be about the State debt and other questions of mere State poli cy, should rally with enthusiasm to the zealous support of the nominees of the Cincinnati Convention. If the election of the nominees of that convention should be defeated by a foolish and criminal division in the ranks of the Democratic party of this State, it would be a shame and humitiation that would affect every man in the State. Let all debt-payers and readjusters touch el bows and march in unison together to a triumphant victory in which all can rejoice that Republican institutions have been preserved, and the liberties of the people secured. "United, we stand; divided, we fall." Let us stand togeth er as a band of brothers. Quite a Narrow Escape.—We learn from the Greenbrier (W. Va.,) Independent that on Monday the 19th ult., while Mr. Madison McClung, of the Meadows, in that county, was in his field harrowing, there came up a very heavy storm of wind. As soon as Mr. M. saw the storm approaching, he hur ried to get out of the field, as there were a great many dead trees in it. Just as he and his son were passing by a very large tree, the top blew off, falling on one of his horses, (the off one,) killing it! The boy was on the other horse and the father a few steps in the rear. Both escaped unhurt—barely with their lives! ♦ Churches in Culpe per and Charlottesville. —A Rich mond ardhitect left that city last week for Charlottesville and the town of Cul peper, in both of which places he will lay off the foundations of the Catholic churches which will be built under the direction of Bishop Keane, of this Diocese. They are the first churches of the sort ever undertaken in either local ity. It is contemplated to have both of brick, and sufficiently commodious to supply present and prospective demand for space. ♦ » ♦ A Mother and Five children Burned to Death —Between 3 and 4 o'clock on Sunday morningof ia*t week, in the suburbs of Chriatiansburg Mont gomery county a crazy woman, Martha Jones, colored, locked herself and her five children up ln her cabin, then set the beds on fire, and sat in a chair sing ing, and she and her five children were burned to death. She refused admit tance to persons, and before assistance could be given, all the inmates were burned to death. Shooting Affray in Pa_e—On Sunday of last week, at Milford in Page county, in an altercation between E. F. Uallaher, one of the corp of Engineers on .the Shenandoah Valley Railroad, who is a son of the senior Editor of the Charlestown Free Press, and Jackson Triplett of Milford, the latter was shot on the head by a pistol und the former in the lower part of the body with small shot from a double-barrel gun. Fortu nately neither was severely injured. Railroad Accident.—A passenger coach on the Richmond and Petersburg railroad jumped the track at Temple's Crossing, Wednesday, and was wrecked. Conductor W. L. Yeager had his back painfully wrenched, and Abraham Greenbauai, salesman of D. Oppen heiraer & Bros., Jewelers, Baltimore, was severely bruised about the thigh and legs. Four others were slightly injured. ♦ ♦ ♦ A Three legged Calk.—The Green brier Independent says that Mr. Uriah Hevener, of Pocahontas county, W. Va., is the owner of a calf which has only three legs—two behind and one in front. In all other respects his calfship is per fectly formed. There is no sign of a leg where that appendage ought to be, but in the shoulder there is a natural joint. Dr. William H. Ruffner, Superiuten dent of Public Instruction, visited the University last week to complete the arrangements for the Normal school, which begins its sessions on the sth of July. Dr. Ruffiier informed the Char lottesville Chronicle that more than three hundred and fifty teachers are en rolled ou the list of those who propose to be present on the occasion. A Small Calf.—A correspondent informs the Shenandoah Valley that a fine, large cow. theptoperty of Mr. Ahab Dove, near Dovesville, Rockingham county, gave birth to a calf that was only 10 inches high, 20 inches long, and weighed -0 lbs. It is a healthy calf. Three Mek Drowned.—On Sunday of last week, Geo. Moore, Geo. W. Cole man, and Robert Percival, thr.e citi zens of Lynchburg, were drowned in the river near that city. It is supposed the boat capsized. — STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND GENERAL ADVERTISER.— The Valley Railroad.—lt now looks as if the Valley R. R. will be com pleted to Salem. At the meeting of the stockholders held here Thursday night last a resolution was unanimously adopt ed authorizing the directors to issue the bonds ofthe company from time to time, as may be necessary, to an amount not exceeding $3,000,000, the proceeds to be applied to the construction and comple tion of the road between Staunton and Salem. The Baltimore Sun says that "this decisive action of the company termin ates the long anxiety of the friends of the road, caused primarily by the sus pension of work beyond Staunton in consequence of the financial depression several years ago. and subsequently by hostile Virginia legislation, now happi ly repealed. The section of tbe road be tween Lexington and Staunton, a die tance of 36 miles, will first be built, and then the road will be pushed to its completion further South." ■ * —*> —♦ A Woman Drowns Herself.—On Sunday of last week, near Catawba, Roanoke county, Mrs. Sarah Hall, wife of Mr. John HaJJ, sen'r., whilst laboring under mental aberration, ppmmitted suicide by drowning in the 3av--nill dam of Mr. Geo. Brunk. . » »^" —i — The Norfolk Landmark advocates with zeal and ability the nomination of Gen. Hancock of Pennsylvania. He Js a good man, and is tbe one pro bably, wh_ should be nominated at Cincinnati, if Blame sooalcj te ropiina ted at Chicago. ♦ a » Heavy Tax.—The Singer Sewing- Machine Company has paid into [the State Treasury $322 for State taxes. A handsome exhibit. Lutheran General Synod So_t_. The twelfth Convention of theEvan gelican General Synod South met last Thursday night at the English Luthe ran church, in Richmond, Rev. W. C. gchaeffer, pastor. The services opened with the beantjful liturgy ofthe Luthe ran Church, read by Rev. Dr. Rude, of Columbia, S. C. The preparatory address was deliver ed by Rev. W. M. Baum, D. D., of Philadelphia. The Confession was read by Rev. Dr. Rude, after which the communion address was made by Rev. D. Conrad, of Philadelphia. Commu nion was then partaken of. The Synod was then organized and proceed to consider routine work. The officers of tb- Synod are Rev. J. Hawkins, president; Rsv. H- S. Win gard, secretary; and R. G. Chilsom, treasurer. The President's report for the past year was received and referred without reading, Rev. D. Gilbert, of Winchester, Va., the retiring president, being unavoidably absent. Rev. J. I. Millerlwas appointed chair man of the standing committee on minutes of last Synod. . The following were elected as a Board of Directors for the Semi nary located at Salem, Va.; From South Carolina Synod—A. R. Rude, B. D.; Rev. J. F. Probst, Rev. J. Hawkins, Captain G. S. Hacker, and R. G. Chil som, Esq. From Virginia Synod: Rev J. A- Snyder, Rev. Piofessor J. I. Miller, Rev. R. C. Holland, C. S. Baker, Esq., and W. £. Esq., From Southwest Virginia Synod; Rev. L. G. M. Miller, Rev. Professor J. J. Scherer,- Colonel Josiah Brown, and William McCauley, Esq. From Geor gia Synod: Rev. J. P. Margart, and J. P. Taylor, M. D- Revs. J. I. Miller and W. D. Strobel, D. D., were selected to discuss the sub ject of missions at the evening session of Friday. Rev. J. I. Millar, in an earnest man ner set forth thegreat i_.pGrt.aqee of mission work in the Lutheran Griu.-h South. An organization small in com parison with the General Synods North and with other denominations around, an aggressive missionary spirit was her hope, her salvation. He then aroused the Synod to the great advantage of starting missions in large cities like Richmond instead of wasting efforts in smaller towns. After this he showed that wherever there was a community of Germans t her. was a work to perform which no other could uniiei-t___ with any hope of success. Pointing out the wealth of intellect, the rich treasure of doctrine, the prestige of a glorious past, the vast material for her work, he charged the Synod to thoow off the gyves of a supposed ability, and with the might of the grand Church of the Reformation to go forward in the stiength of the Lord, s.n<J with united hearts and hands establish at imy> tj;e mission here on a sure basis. In his address, Rev. W. D. Strobel of Rhinebeck, N. V, referred to the great missionary work in the time of Luther, and showed how it was all accomplislini by the life of Christ infused into the Church, and called upon the Synod to infuse more of this life into its mission work. Tha English Lutheran church of Richmond, of which Rev. W. C. Schaef fer is pastor, started fear years ago with seven members. It now ii_a eighty three communicants, and is constantly growing in grace, numbers, and useful ness. One of the most important matters which came before the Synod at the morning session Saturday was the re port of the special committee appointed to confer with the commissioner from the Synod of North Carolina. The Synod of North Carolina several years ago severed its' connection with tne general body, and action looking to the re-establishment of foruierrelations has resulted favorably for all the interests involved. Appointments by the Governor. —The Governor Thursday appointed the following Boards of Visitors to the State institutions :— University of Virginia. —A. H. H. Stuart, Staunton ; Thomas S. Bocook, Lynchburg; Dr. U. C. N. Randolph, Charlottesville: Rev. Paul Whitehead, FarmviHe; G. A. Gilmore, Marion, Smj'th county ; J. L. Marye, Frederick burg ; John Goode, Norfolk ; John F. , Lay, Richmond, instead of John Hart, resigned. Virginia Agricultural and Mechani cal College.— John Pretlow, Jr., South hampton ci unty, instead of C. Shirley Harrison, who declined to accept—term begins June 4,1880, and ends January 1, 1882; B. V. Games, Charlotte county, instead of Charles Bruce, who declined to serve. Deaf, Dumb and Blind Institution. — Thomas N. Page, of Richmond, instead of J. D. Jones, term expired; H. L. D. Lewis, of Berry ville, instead of Dr. C. C. Henkel,.term expired. 9 9. . Who do Readjusters Say?— The Norfolk Landnqrk says of the Staun ton convention :— "What do our Readjuster friends Btfy to this result ? It was very necessary for them to capture the Staunton con vention. They have failed after a hot struggle, and this means that they are ao£ wanted at the official tea party, where thp bread and butter is not enough to go around the rapiiy circle. We have no advice to give to the leaders of the Readjusters, but we call on th/ 3 white lank and file to think over this great business and to realize that the civiliza tion of the white man is at stake. They must go on one side or the other, must 10-i: arms with 'old marster' or with Sambo, md we think we know them well enough to predict where they will be found. Anyhowi one thing is plain, the Republicans want no Readjuster in their party unless they are prepared to cooie in as privates and fight their way up to a commission, if they can." More Millerite Rascallt j. Dr. J. I. Ballou, an old gentleman living in Wise county, and also Mrs. Thomas Strong of Scott county, who claim to have learned the secret from Dr. Miller, are now practicing, and pro fess to effect cures by the laying-on of hands. Dr. Ballou will travel and bum bug all who apply to him. It is a dis grace to the age, and a humiliation to Virginia, that such creatures should be able to find silly dupes who will apply to them for ministration. Tbey should be ducked in the nearest pond, or sub jected to worse treatment. They serve either the straight jacket for their insanity, or.severer punishment for their rascality. We believe that they are more knaves than fools, and expect to make their living from the credulity of fools. Dr. Miller has succeeded so well in imposing upon tbe credulous, that oth ers are induoed to follow in bis footsteps tbat they, like him, may fill tbelr pock ets at the expense of the credulous and afflicted. These impostors deserve to have their ears cropped. An example should be made of them, tbat other may be deterred from playing similar tricks, and imposing npon. Wfis-PfMnd ed, but honest, people who nave the misfortune to be afflicted with disease. We feel it to be our duty in behalf of the afflicted to expose such palpable ab surdity, and, as we believe, such merce nary rascality and devilish hypocrisy on tbe part of these professed miracu- Ipus healers. They pocket the money and laugh at the Cr'edu.ti*y and folly of their dupea. Since the above was written, we have received the Salem Conservative, which [ says :— "Doctor Miller, so called, is receiving some rather uncomplimentary notices at the hands of the press, and we arp not 30 sure but that they" are well deserved. There is positively no grounds whatever for any belief in the theory of his di vine agency in healing diseases. Thou sands of persons have visited him for treatment since he came to Roanoke; of all these not one has been restored to health, or relieved in such a manner as to uhaw tb&t Qpd had any hand in tbe work. If, indeed, any really afflicted person has been healed by his manipu lations we do not know of it. Some have doubtless experienced a degree of relief at his hands, either real or imag inary, but to say that he can heal dis eases is saying too much, and we think it is time the public should be advised of it. Let no one visit Miller under the impression that he is exercising any other than $ natural gift possessed by many other men, in equal (ir less degree. The man is unquestionably highly charged with electricity, and by a dex trous application of his bands upon his patients be is often enabled to palliate or relieve pain. And this is the extent of the powers of the noted Doctor Mil ler. Many persons believe he is per fectly honest in setting up tbe claim he does to diviue agency in the matter, but on the other hand there are those who do.:i,t hjs sfncerity. If he is really sin cere, he is a v-.itablp monomaniac pn the subject of healing; l'f he is "hot _ihr cere, he is as gross and cunning a hypo crite as ever deceived a too credulous people. We deem it our duty to the public to irj'ike this statement." Tbe Fincaatie Jteraid, of Qtb inst., Bays :— 'The furore about the famous 'Dr.' Miller, who is now at the Roanoke Bed Sulphur Springs, still continues, and hundreds are being duped by him. From what we hear we are disposed to believe Mr. Miller is innocent of any deliberate intention to deceive, but he is daily deceiving the people, neverthe less, ft is now high time the press were exposing this ffrepQStprQHS. super stition, and assisting to educate ppoplp up to better things." Shenandoah Valley Railroad, Under date of last Thursday, a corres» bondent writes from Front .Royal to the Baltimore Sun as follows: OnWednesday the Shenandoah Valley Railroad Company held its annual tr"e*?ti»£ at Winchester, and elected officers as" follows; president, Wm. Milnes, Jr., Vice-president, U. L. Boyce; directors, W. H. Travcrs, Alex. Boteler, H. Hansberger, Logau Osborn, Henry Davenport, David Byllmeyer, Mann. Spitter, Aug. Boyd. Wm. D, Smith, John D. Lovell. Fifty-five miles of the road are operated at present, the stations being SUepb-jrdstown, Shenandoah Junction, (crossipg Baltimore andQ-Jo,} Charles town; Ripon, Fairfield, Jjerryyille, Boyr-eviJle, (Millwood,) White Post, Asliby's.Cedarvilie Crossing, Riverton, dm the River aud Virginia Midland,) Fiout Royal and Bentonviile. The latter point will be reached on Monday. From Bentonviile it is 16 miles to Luray, and thence 55 miles to Waynes boro', on the Chesapeake and Ohio rail road. By the time the track is laid to Luray the iron will be down to Way ne-sboro', August!. At the other end of tiie ljpe_tj.e road from Shepherds town, W. Va., to JJagerptpwp, Md., 16 miles, will be finished by July J. These breaks, when closed, will give a total of 142 miles, from Waynesdoro', Augusta, county, Va , to Hagerstown, which will be in operation by August 1. The total force eugaged in construc tion comprises 3,200 men Within the past three weeks $180,000 have been paid for right of way, in part on ihe Maryland end. Of the five counties iv Virginia through which the road passes only three have made county subscrip tions, vi-j : Jefferson $240,000 with $_~-- 000 reserved | Clarke f }PQ,Q.()Q, ou wpiclj the last installment was paid May 5, and Page $200,000, still due. The coun ties not subscribing aie Warren, Au gusta and Rockingham. The people of tbis part of the valley are proud to re alize that the Shenandoah road is not an ignisfatuus, and also that the Valley road is to be built. They also have a lively faith that the Shenandoah line will be extended beyond Waynesboro' towards the South. The equipment of the Shenandoah Valley row already consists of 10 first class passenger eoa&hes,,", engines a "d 50 freight cars. Ten raose engines and 160 freight cars are contracted for, to be delivered August 1. The route is through a fine and beautiful wheat growing country, and the enterprise has given an extraordinary impetus to the business of all the towns along the line. Many buildings have been erected, and there is a prospect of much sum mar tr«v<i) and residence this season la this delightful region of '/irginiij. The road bed is well ballasted, aud the track is as easy as an old road. The chief en gineer is Mr. W. W. Coe. The com pany's office was ordered to be moved permanently to Luray, where the an nual and other meetings of the railroad company will be held hereafter. _ The man that thinks Demooratic to ters, because they voted in favor of read justment, can be easily carried into the Radical camp, casting disgrace on the good name and true principles of their fathers, will find himself mistaken. The issue is squarely between ihe Democrats and the Republicans, and he that is not for the nominee of the Cin cinnati Convention, Is opposed to the Democrats, no matter what his excuses may be for leaving his party.—SKenqn doah Valley. Most any sort of au apology will do for a weak-kneed Democrat who is try ing to gpt into the back door of the Republican party. The front door was closed at the Staunton Convention with aslam.— Old Commonwealth. * Gen. Mahone's Speech.—-The lead er of tbe Readjusters was brought over from the Rockbridge Alum by Mr. Jas. A. Frazier on Monday last to make a speech to his people. The crowd in town was not a large one and there was no enthusiasm among the few followers of the little General, outside the head centre. An accident to the buggy in coming over the mountain delayed his arrival till a late hour. The General did not appear to be in good feather, and I his speech fell fiat. The negroes do not much relish bis statement that they owe nothing to the Republicaa party, and can't account for the fact of his people endeavoring to manage the Staunton Convention and yet their leader be a Democrat. This is a puzzling problem to both parties. The fact of tbe busi ness is, Mahone had better have r.niiin ed in Richmond than come here with his bucket of cold water, The "boom" was a flash in the pan.— Lexington Ga zette. « tt « Gov. Mathews addressed the people of Pittsburg, last week, in behalf ofthe Pittsburg Southern railroad, and laid before them a comprehensive statement of the timber and mineral resources of the regions tributary to the proposed route, including the county of Monroe.
