This quotation to some extent verified in the ig of the Republican phalanx ie Underwood constitution, days when the hope of a new tion dawns upon us and Re s cry partisanism, it is well to c circumstances and some of or beasts who fixed that ob measure on the people of Vir ho held our noses while others the dose down our throats lirty-hve years ago. Under hose name our present consti ears, was a Federal judge, lion in life, he said, was "to bels, and especially the arch iff Davis. He wrote the Davis ent. Repacked the jury to He placed on that jury men openly declared they would . Davis if they got a chance, hem the notorious Hunnicut lame at this late day ought o be uttered in decent society, scarcely be without turning nary stomach. He placed on r Yankees who had just come rglnia a short time before, s carpet baggers. He placed t negroes, and—may the Lord rcy on his soul and theirs, M far worse—deserters from ederate army, anicut, the Richmond Enquir aking of that jury said: "He itor of a dirty negro sheet dhere called the New Nation amouse, unscrupulous old rho has been everything from seller to preacher." Northern papers denounced )od in unmeasured terms, ladelphia Age said of him: Judge Underwood, of the United I States District Court in the Virginia Circuit, has manifestly taken Jeffreys for his model, and is impatient to im mortalize himself by re-enacting on the soil of the Old Dominion the cruel ties and butcheries of the Bloody Assizes. On last Tuesday he delivered an address to the Grand Jury, the like of which has never been heard of in any court of justice, we verily believe, since the darkest days of oppression of which there is record in English It was in these days and amid those surroundings that a constitution was made for Virginia. High places were filled with such as Underwood, who needed tools, such as Hunnicut, and deserters from the Confederate army. As our fathers were disfranchised at that time, negroes and scallawags, and carpet-baggers and deserters from the Confederate army, Were our lords and masters, and how they performed their work history tells. Have conditions K hanged, have the Underwoods, the lunnicuts, the carpet-bargers, the sallawags and the deserters passed way ? Have we only broadminded, liberal, humane, honest, upright citi lens in the Republican party of today V n outward appearances there has been slight improvement, in inward me ntion we fear they are still Under woods and Hunnicuts. That they have lie audacity to continue to saddle the Inderwood constitution on us is some vidence in that direction, that they "prefer darkness to light," is another. Bad that they wish to deprive Virgin .ns of the right to frame a constitu on for themselves, and maintain that ie one emanating from the Under wood convention is better than any Iwe ourselves can make, argues that there are still Underwoods and Ilun nicuts, scalawags and deserters frcm the Confederate army, banded against the people of Virginia, that there are those who having enjoyed the sweets of negro supremacy and white humili ation at one period of Virginia's exis tence, would return to it, as the dog I ret urns to his vomit, or as the sow to sr wallowing in the mire. With the nderwood constitution as their ibralter we hope the Republican press ill, with its usual audacity and Irility—we wish we could add abili '—denounce the effort the people of irginia are now making to write a ■ustitntion for themselves. We like ie neigh of the war horse as we hear m champing the bit in his anxiety t battle. The people of Virginia, lat is the Democrats of Virginia, are prepared for the struggle, the fiercer the combat the more they will enjoy it. If in the encounter the gentlemen who see so much to admire in the negro and in the results of the con vention which gave us our present constitution, and so little to admire in white people or in the convention we are about to elect, get a little of the dose the scalawags, carpet-baggers, negroes and deserters from the Confed erate army, gave us along with the Underwood constitution as well as on other occasions, we shall shed no tears. We like the tone ot the Repub lican press, we rejoice in that politics in Virginia, no matter how great our contempt for the men who play it, which peaces the negro above the whites, or denies to our people the right to wipe the present constitution from the statute books and in its stead put one there they have made them selves. Your Underwood constitution, gentlemen, is doomed, gather about its carcass ye who live on such decora posed matter and fill your maws be I Ps too late. But why invite you i know that where the carrion I DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES. The Democratic Committee has or dered a primary election to be held on April 13tb for city and county. We suppose this was the best solution of the question, but for our part we have no use for primary elections. In the first place people are usually voted by hundreds who will not support the nominees unless those nomlness suit them. In the second place such rival ry is engendered before the election takes place that the defeated parties sulk and cry fraud. In the third place men are voted in .Democratic primaries who are not Democrats, never have been, always were kickers and bolters, who are ready to cut the throat of the nominees if they be not the men of their choice and what often occurs, force on the party men, whom loyal Democrats do not want, but for whom they are obliged to vote because their sense of honor is not as cheap as that of the bolters who forced the candi dates on them. There is nothing which so soon disorganizes aud des troys a party as the persistent holding of primary elections This may seem paradoxical, but it is nevertheless true, and the party in this city and county will see it before it lives much longer. We understand that the Democratic test sought by which persons would be entitled to vote in the approaching j primary was that they supported the j national aud congressional tickets last fall. For our part had we been a member of the committee we would have hewn to that line. There was a threat made, we have been told, that if such a clause was put in the call hundreds of men would leave the par ty and join with the Republicans and support a Republicau nominee. This was not startling. Are not those men ready to do so any way unless they get what they want, have they not al ready done so, and can they be relied on in any real party measure ? We ourselves prefer defeat to bulldozing. Defeat is not a severe thing when we stick to principle, but to lose both principle and the election is very bad. THE DISPATCH WAKING UP. The Richmond Dispatch has at last been slightly aroused and has written an editorial which we read without falling aßleep, strange to say. We had taken the Dispatch to task about what we termed its feeble and halt hearted support of Bryan and its love for Cleveland. W r e cannot think we have read the Dispatch wrong in making these statements and they are not un equivocally denied by it. Of course they may not have been shown by any single article but there is a way of reading between the lines which is as well known to the Dispatch as to any one. Our diagnosis of the Dispatch's course was not altogether made from reading between the lines, but we be lieved its early anxiety to drop free silver, of which Mr. Bryan it says is the embodyment, was not arrived at very suddenly so we believed must have been a desire long existing though until now not expressed. In hunting therefore for words which ab solutely denied our proposition both as to Bryan and Cleveland we were kept und when we did not find them we fell asleep again and dreamed the same old dream, of its gold stand aid proclivity and love for Cleveland. We wish the Dispatch could find a can didate for the presidency who would inspire it, at least enough to cause it to write articles which will keep its readers awake, and be known as a wide awake paper. We need such in Virginia, and we must say that with a few honorable exceptions we have not had them, not even in the Dis patch. Playing Politics. It is amusing to see Mr. W. A. [Jrawford playing politics. His gira tions, and leaps, and cavortings, are like those of a young elephant, clumsy and laughable. He has suddenly uu lertaken to talk Democracy, and on last Monday appeared in the Demo cratic committee room with some cut I md dried plans for holding the prima-1 ry, and his plans ware adopted. On Thursday morning he aired him jelf in tue Daily News of this city, lec turing that paper and the Democratic mrty generally, and asserting what he •egarded as the duty of loyal Democrats. We are not objecting to a word he said, but we do object to the source. VVhen and how did Mr. Crawford ar ived at the point where he candidate ;o Democrats or preach party loyal ;y. He Is an open and notorious bol ;or. He never failed yet to jump the aarty fence when he wanted to or when the fodder on the inside was less ittractive than that on the outside. :Ie bolted last fall,and came in Monday ast and whsn his cut and dried regula tions for holding the primary were >biected to ana other proposed, he is sported as saying that if the fact of laving voted the Democratic National tnd Congressional tickets last fail was nade a test he would bolt again, and ,'0 with the Republicans with 250 ithsr Democrats, and defeat the pri oary nominess—and such a Democrat alk of loyalty and things "being oolced"? There are those who would like to mow where the plan brought into the ommittee by him on Monday was] repared, and iv whose interest ? • There are those who would like to now whether he will support the lommees of April 13th, unless they nit him ? There are those who do not believe c knows of anything "being cooked" a Staunton, and will not believe it nless he specifies what it is, which bey call on him to do.
