THF. IDAILY DISPATCH
MOM>AT MOKNINO, OCTOlt* 3, I'M.
The Tocrnamknt. —When John Mitchel,
in hia address at the University of irgin •»
lamented that the days of chivalry were past»
he was certainly not aware of the revival ot
the Tournament in the Old Dominion. If he
had spent the present summer amid the coo
shades of our watering places, he would be
moved to un*ay a great deal that he has said,
and to acknowledge, that in respect to chiv
alry, he has done the nineteenth century some
injustice, and that it is, on the whole, in this
part of the world, a progressive century, and
is travelling back to the starry glories of the
dark ages with commendable speed. The
Tournament, that flower and pride of the gay
and gallantmedisuval times, has been restored,
regenerated, and is in full bloom once more,
gave that now the flower has no thorns, and
the charmed spectators can enjoy its sweet
fragrance, and ladies pluck and wear it in
their bosoms, without a shudder at the
thought that its leaves have been stained with
the blood of the brave. Behold, oh! incred
ulous Mitchel, the wondrous power of mod
ern civilization. You defied the moderns, in
your University address, to answer this ques
tion —What is Civilization? You said that
nine out of ten of them would answer —Civ-
ilization is the railroad, it is the steamboat,
it is the electric telegraph, it is gas. As one
of the moderns, we answer that Civilization
j Si —the Tournament, in which we have
Knights, Heralds, Queens of Beauty and
Maids of Honor, without the cost of a single
shivered lance, or battered helmet. Instead of
ponderous Athelstones, dare-devil Ivanhoes,
and thunderbolt Richards, rushing at each
other at the full speed of their fiery chargers,
and coming together with a shock like the ex
plosion of a powder magazine, the cavaliers
of the modern Tournament gallop, one after
another, at a ring, and he who carries off that
ring upon the point of his glittering spear, is
entitled to proclaim the lady of his choice
"the fairest maid in all the town. '
We see that the Tournament has this year
spread to Western Virginia, aregion hitherto
eminently plain, practical and republican,
but which, with the accession of railroads, is
fast becoming civilized, refined and chival
rous. The ancient and stirring sport of gan
der-pulling will now give way to the knightly
tilt at the ring. Here, again, we see the pro
gress of humanity. In former times the un
happy gander, that royal and condescending
bird—which the Ettrick Shepherd once said
couldn't walk under a rainbow without bow
ing his head, lest he might hit the arch, was
ruthlessly suspended between heaven and
earth, while a troop of rollicking barbarians
rode at his greased neck, and the victor bore
off his prize amidst the derisive shouts of the
b wage crowd. But the Tournament comes
to the rescue of the gander, —it brings conso
lation and security to his whole unhappy
race; it is, in fact, a millenium for geese.
Among the most pleasing features of the
tournament, and those in which its superiori
ty over gander-pulling, are evident at a
glance, are the fanciful apparel and the mag
nificently sounding titles of the riders. When
the President of tho day addresses them as
"Sir Knights," the spectators feel quite a
>cold chill of admiration running all the way
down their spine—it seems so like the days
of chivalry. Their admiration is increased
by the romantic appellation to which each
gallant knight has helped himself, in his cru
sades amid the domains of history, and they
are struck all in a heap by the glittering ap
parel in which some old acquaintance of the
Jaw office or counting room, has so effectual
ly disguised himself that his own mother
woudl'nt know her babo.
It has often occurred to us, that if Don
tjuixotte de la Mancha could rise from the
dead, and visit one of these brilliant and stir
ring scenes, he would be at once in his favor
ite element. We fancy we behold the grim and
gallant knight approaching the lists, with vi
sor removed, and a resolute and enquiring
glance. The trumpet sounds, and giving Ro
«:nante a touch of the spur, he hastens for
ward, and approaching the glittering group
of cavaliers, demands to know the rules and
conditions of the contest. It were "worth
ten years of peaceful life," to behold the ex.
pression of his rueful visage, when informed
that upon carrying off yonder ring, he might
proclaim Dulcinia del Toboso, of
Love and Beauty. We have appreciated too
highly the lofty ambition and sturdy prowess
of the knight of La Mancha, if in that mo
ment of mingled astonishment and rage, he
did not run a muck at all present, and trans
fix with his good lance, like unto so many
flies impaled upon a pin, the knight of the
Green Glen, the knight of the Black Stone,
the knight of the Blue Pill, the knight of the
Yard Stick, the knight of the Pickled Cu
cumber, and all other green, black, blue and
yellow centaurs of the company. It is well
that the hero of Cervantes sleeps in dust, and
can no longer roam over the earth in search
of adventure.
We hear it rumored, that among the other
exhibitions at the great Agricultural Fa r,
there is to be an Exhibition of Chivalry, a
magnificent tournament, in which the Rough
and Ready Knights of Richmond and per
chance the S. A. Body Guard of Pettrj
burg, will meet in mortal combat. It will be
a spectacle, the like of which, in splendor
and interest, has not been seen since the days
of Richard of the Lion Heart. Let John
Mitcliel visit Richmond about the last of
this month, and he will confess that he was
premature in affirming tlmt the days of chiv
alry had departed.
Frogs and Sora.—Some evil disposed per
bod has imposed upon our excellent friend of
the Ji'Jertonian, and taken away his appetite
for Bora by reporting that after the frost ap -
pears, this most delicious of the feathered
race turns into frogs. This is an old wife's
fable, and a wretched libel upon a most dain
ty creature.
It turns to no frog, but remains to the last
• respectable and well behaved bird. It is
migratory in its habits, and takes its depar
ture like other fashionable birds with a
change of climate. It is often seen near the
waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and sometimes
take passage in West India vessels. We
know nothing of its origin, except that it pro
bably comes straight down from heaven;
nor of its destiny, save that it generally van
ishes away down epicurean palates and leaves
no traoe behind.
"Bam Patch."—Some two weeks or more
aince, there appeared in the Norfolk Beacon
a letter, signed "Bam Patch/' and dated at
the "Mountain House," (we suppose in Craig
county.) This letter was a tirade upon the
Covington and Ohio Railroad Convention,
upon the Central Railroad and this city. So
bitter and abusive was it that even the
Lynchburg Virginian, in copying it, felt call
ed upon to say:
" There are, however, aeveritiee of remark sod la
Mreaee la the article, more particularly la regard to
•he eonraa of ftiabmoad, which we are not diapoaed
to eadorae."
We did not feel called on to give more
thtn a passing notice to this uncharitable wri
ter. He has been very completely answered
by "A Member of the Convention," in the
Beacon itself. We will, however, speak of
one statement in "Patch's" letter, not notic
ed ia the answer of "A Member."
"Sam Patch," referring to Mr. McComas'
and Mr. Rives' resolutions, (that of Mr. R.
in behalf of another Convention,) which were
submitted to the Covington and Ohio Con
vention, says:
"A. Steveoaon, feeing that If time was not allowed
to operate amoni the diaaffected, that the* would
pais, actually adjourned over the Convention to af
ford an opportunity to dram ap in the recesa, thna
•howing that the old political hnckater waa true to
hie calling."
Now, Mr. McComas icithdreic Us resolu
tion in favor of Mr. Rives'. So his (Mr.
McC.'s) resolution was not submitted to a
vote at all! And Mr. Stevenson did not ad
journ the Convention—the Convention ad
journed itself. Mr. Stevenson had not the
power to adjourn it, nor did he shew any de
sire to usurp that power. "Sam Patch"
might have been content with failing to state
what did happen, without giving as fact the
very opposite of irkat did occur!
The truth is: The speaking had lasted un
til near the dinner hour, when Mr. Rives of
fered his resolution. During the discussion
of that resolution, the dinner bell rang, and
that had a decided effect upon the audience,
which, doubtless knowing well what even a
warm dinner at tho White Sulphur was, had
no idea of trying a cold one. Before the last
speaker, previous to the recess, was through
there was hardly a baker's dozen left, and a
hasty motion for the recess was adopted, very
heartily, without a dissenting voice. All Mr.
Stevenson had to do, was to put the ques
tion, and declare it carried in the affirmative
—the crowd being in such a hurry that if
hardly heard his decision. Not a man pre
sent dreamed of taking the vote before the
recess.
What are we to think, then, of " Sam
Patch's" statement concerning the act of
the President of the Convention and his
motives ? It is a fair sample ot the ground
less accusations and the reckless imputa
tions of motives which characterize hi 3 let
ter.
Election of Bishop Wain weight's Successor
The Protestant Episcopal Convention at New York
reassembled on Friday evening, and again pro
ceeded to ballot for a successor to liiahop Wain
wright. On the Bth ballot the Rev. Horatio Potter,
D. D, of Albany, was elected Bishop, receiving
172 votes; Rev. Dr. Vinton, 12G; others smaller
votes.
On motion of Dr. Vinton, the election was con.
firmed by acclamation.
Elliott, the aeronaut.—A few days ago, we
copied from the Baltimore Sun a paragraph relative
to a fracas between Elliot, the aronaut, and a man
named Patterson, at the house of the former, in
Baltimore. We have received from Mr. John T.
Ford the following statement, from which our read"
erj will readily infer that Mr. E's course was en
tirely consistent with honor and duty:
" Advised of the facts, not fully rtated in the Run,
and also cognizant of antecedent occurrences of
d.fliculties between the same parties, I deem it but
justice to say that the circumstarees that eaueed
Mr. Elliott to inflict personal chastisement on a man
much younger and more able bodied than himself
was a duty he owed to a cherished daughter and
several lovely infant grand children, who had been
insulted, ill-treated and outraged in feelings during
the absence of Mr. Elliott irora his home.
'The chastisement inflicted was therefore the re
suit of parental indignation, caused by the infa
mous violation of all the principles of manliness in
Intimidating and threatening helplessness in the ab
sence of its natural protecior.

Temperance Meeting.—A large and
respectable meeting of citizens of both aexee waa
held at the Universalis Church laat Friday night
to bear an addreas by the Rev. Chauii 11. Rkaf
of thla city, on "The traffic in ardent apirita." The
ladies turned out in full force on the occasion, anc
seemed perfectly delighted with the remark* aub
mltted to their consideration, on a * object which ao
vitally affect* not only their individual happiness,
but those of their families and friend*.
The meeting waa opened with a feeling and ap
propriate prayer by the Rev. Robert Ryland of
this city, who earnestly beseeched the aid of Di
vine Providence in pushing forward the great tem
perance reformation.
The opening address was made by Mr. Thomas
J. Evans, in which our present license laws were
discussed and compared with a prohibitory law.—
He contended that it would be as reasonable to for
bid a man's drinking spirits at hi* own bouse, as tr
forbid his drinking it at the store of another, wher<
it was purchased but could not be drunk. A. has s
license to sell intoxicating drinks to B. to be cat
ried away, but not to be drunk where sold. Am
what i* the effect ? Why 8., the purchaser, sbal
not get drunk in A.'s house and disturb and anno;
bis family, but be may take it home, as the law
says, and. In the phrenzy ot intoxication, abuat
and maltreat his poor wile and helpless children 1
who are not the cause of his madness. Much i
said Mr. E., has been said of a sumptuary law, ai
the Maine law has been called. He doubted L
one out of ten who denounced it, bad ever rpad it
How many present had read It ? This law did not
prohibit a man's drinking intoxicating beverages I
but from selling such drinks. But then the latitudi j
from which this law originated is objected to. I j
a principle to be rejected because it comes frorr j
the North? I take it, said the speaker, that tha>
which is cood should no more be objected. to be-'
cause it Tiad its origin in the North, than abaci
principle should be accepted because it originates I
in the South. All the friends of temperance asket I
ot the Legislature was to let the voice of the peo I
pie be heard. If they demanded a prohibitory I
law, it was the duty of the Legislature to pass It.— 1
If they did not wish it, the temperance men would
not endeavor to force it upon them.
But it has been said that a Prohibitory law, it
passed, could not be executed. The speaker ask
ed if the law prohibiting the Is«ue of small notes
was notjexccuted; and answered, "unquestionably,
because sustained by public se..timent." He had
heard the Attorney tor the Commonwealth charge
the Jury to take legal steps to prevent the circu
lation of small notes; and in a short time alter, had
known the Sheriff'to pay off a Jury in shinplasters.
Why was this? Because the bar, bench, Jury and
officers of the court were all guilty of violating the
law and there was no one left to "cast the first
stone." Public sentiment was not then with the
law —but since a change in the public mind,
witness the effect: Small notes are unknown, and
the law rigidly adhered to.
The same remarks will apply to the sain of lot
tery tickets. Is not the law to prevent the sale ol
lottery tickets a prohibitory one? And yet, does
any one complain ot it? Certainly not—because
public sentiment waa ripe for its passage, and there
fore sustained it.
One of the reasons urged against the prohibition
of the sale of intoxicating drinks is, that tho e en
gaged in it will be thrown out of businesss and left
to starve. Well, if any class of men can only sus
tain themselves by puisoDlng their fellows, let them
starve. But no—if that be the only objection, and
the passage of the law can be secured in no other
way, the friends of temperance would enter into
bond with approved security, to support all the
rum sellers and their families, the remainder ol
their lives. They shall not starve. We will give
them roast beef and $2 per dav, and then save
money for the State, out of the vast amouat now
expended in supporting pauperism, punishing
crime and enforcing the laws now trampled upon
by the votaries of intemperance.
If the sale of ardent spirits were a proper traffic,
why had the law thrown around it so many restric
tionsjnot applicable to the sale of any other article?
Why was the dealer required to be a man of good
character, and would probably keep an orderly
house ? Why was he required to get a certificate
of character from the court 1 And why was he re
quired to pay an extra license for the sale of the ar
tide ? Did not these restrictions show, conclusive
ly, that tho Legislature has control of the subject
that it has the power to say by whom the article
may be sold—and if it has the power to select
the sellers, has it now the same power to prohibit
the sale altogether} [The speaker here read sec
tions from the code on the subject of licenses, and
remarked upon them with great force, pointing out
their inconsistencies, and proving by argument,that
they were detrimental to the wealth, health and
happiness of the State.]
Mr. Kvans reminded his audience that the friends
of temperance, last winter, sent a petition to the
Legislature, asking the passage of a bill by which
the voice of the people could be heard for or against
a prohibitory law. This petition, though signed by
15,000 persons, was given the go by. Since then
an election had been held in the Harrison Congres
sional district, composed of five counties, in which
the friends ol temperance opened a poll for and
against,licensing the sale of liquor. Four of those
counties voted against the license and one in favor
of it. In the State, forty three counties had refused
to grant certificates to merchants to sell ardent
spirits, and eighteen had relused licenses to ordi
naries.
The County Court of Mason having; refused a li
cense to Mr. Ysgher, who proved himself to be a
man of good character, under that section of the
law which says " if a sober man, who would prob
ably keep an orderly house, etc., should apply tor
a license, the Court rany grant it"—the woid may
having heretofore been construed to mean shall—
that gentleman appealed to Judge Summers, who
gave as his opinion that the subject was entirely
under the control of the County Court But not
being satisfied with this decUion Mr. Yagher car
ried it to the Court of Appeals, the highest judicial
tribunal in the State, and that body decided, that
according to the wording of the law, the County
Court had full discretion over the matter, and could
grant or reject the license as to it seemed best.
After an able review of the laws governing the
sale of ardent spirits, and the effect of such traffic
on the morals of the people, Mr. Kvans apologised
tor having said so much; and introduced the Rev.
C. H. Read as one who, though known to the au
dience, yet was in this case not so well known to
them as to himself, he having found him, when
ever called upon, ready to meet any demand made
upon him in behalf of temperance.
Mr. Read then rose and addressed himself with
his usual clearness and force of reasoning and
beau'y of languaee to the subject before him, "The
Traffic in Ardent Spirits." He contended thnt that
which is wrong, cannot be legislated intor/gAf, nor
that wbich is base and degrading in its effects, be
made by law noble and elevating, and all efforts in
this sort of legislation are full of contradictions, in
consistencies and absurdities as had been shown
this evening. The history of our legislation on this
subject was abundantly illustrative of what he had
asserted. As a minister of the gospel here for five
years, he could not be accused of meddling with
politics. Ilis commission was different, "Go ye
into all the world and preach the gospel to every
creature," and he deeply regretted that there were
those of his calling who had so greatly mistaken its
aim as to make it subservient to politics; but, said
ho, as a private citizen, a tax paying citizen, interest*
ed in and affected by all that goes to promote or
mar the peace, purity, health, wealth, and morals
of society, I hare my opinions and on fitting occa
sions, am not backward to state and defend them.
In regard to legislation in general, he considered it
a tound aziom that every organized society which is
fit to exist, possesses an inherent right to enact laws
both maiiiftrjry and prohibitory, for lt« preservation
and improvement. Upon this princ'pla, lie tnok his
stand, and with it was willing to abide under all ctr
cntnstances. The oppositeof It is absurdity, for what
is society without snch a right? Regarding this as a
fundamental doctrine, the enlightened friends of
Temperance who are attentive to the true spirit of
their miwlon, do not seek at all to crerrt society. bo<
endeavor, by moral suasion, so to enlighten and influ
ence, end monld society, that it shall awake to the
protection of Itself. We do not wish to force public
sentiment: but first, by the force of truth acting on
individual minds, to convince, and then to draw forth
through the lawful majorities, and to guide, control,
and direct, by all honorable means, the public will,
to a certain noble end.
If society, then, haa a right to pass laws for its own
protection and improvement, we maintain that the
objections to the manufacture and aale of intoxics
laUon 6 **I***"lußiar1***" lußiar thi4 * flt ">bjeet for such legit-
Oar first objection to the manufacture and aale of
iotoxicitioji bevarigM u such, li that in exact pro*
port on to tu extent it subtracts from the supply of
aatritious food, and gives us instead a poison Ba
waa aware that In acme of these beverages there
was a little of the nutritions quality left, bat in the
main they are wholly deprived of ft, foj the process
of distillation robs the corn and the potato of the
power to assimilate with the fieah and blood of
and introduces into bis system instead that which is
not. and cannot be, by the machinery of the atomaeh,
converted into blood. He ace it pervades the system
as an antagonistic principle, at war with the regular
operations by which oar food sustains oar Ufa, acd
can only be regarded as a poison. Such haJcohoL and
it is for the extraction of this destructive weipon
that the manafaetarer leys hold of Immense qaaati
ties of the fruits of the earth. Ia times of famine It
m'ght well be maintained that the food thus con
sumed would. If applied to Its legitimate ehaaaeL go
far to alleviate the distress, and in times of scarcity
to brlog ahoat neb eat qaiilbrian of prices at neat
ly to soften the condition ef the poor.
His seeond objection to this traffic waa. that It
e.tier palsies or diveitt from ir.h and asefal sphere,
alares MHiit of Übor. What, ha sskad, <* the pro
daclog >!••'of Of woilil What la ItW labor

Hie third objection was, that the traffic Inflicts a
poaitive injury apon the public health and peace for
which it oner* no adequate compensation. Againat
all the hilarity and aoeial pleasure which the moat
r»fined advocate* of the glaae would claim, he de
picted the condition of one drunkard and hi* family,
and inquired if the uae of the*e beverages gave a re
turn for what they took awe* from society.
Hia fourth objection waa the conuption of public
moral*. The constant tendency of the beverages la
n lealioa ia to impair all that la noble and feneroa*
and good, and to exalt the brntal, the fierce and the
It fosters crime and increaaea the
expense* of Government. Under thi* head it waa
demonstrated to the audience that if thoee engaged
in thi* traffic should all abandon it, and abould be un
able to find other employment, the community would
be the gainer by taking charge of them and giving
them the full amount of wbat they make by these
if" theae thinga are ao, ought private gratifica
tion and pecuniary profit to outweigh public injury?
The obvious tendency of the liquor traffic as a beve
rage is physical, social and moral evil; therefore it ia
wrong, and should be suppressed.
He supposed that some were engaged in thi* traffic
more from want of conaideration than from that mo
ral reckleswne** which in other ca*e» made men,
looking fully at the vice* which they encouraged,
willing to increase and to profit by them. In conclu
sion, he exhorted his aucience to practical zeal in
thi* cause, urging aa an incentive to activity that the
present and future well being of man aa to hi* great
est concerns i* continually and deeply involved.
There wa* fixed attention on the part of thoie pre
sent, and evidently considerable interest felt in all
that wa* uttered during the evening. A* a moral and
intellectual fsait, and a manifestation of interest on
the part of a highly reipectable portion of the com
munity, the friend* of the cause had mach reason to
be gratified with the meeting.
Richmond Female Institute. —We
gratified our curiosity, a day or two since, by paying
a visit to this new structure, on Tenth street be
tween Clay and Marshall, which has been attracting
so mu6h attention. It is designed for the accom
modation of a female school of the highest order;
and every arrangement seems to have been adopt
ed, in the construction of the buildings, to facilitate
the labors of instruction, and to promote the com
fort and advantage of its future occupants.
The edifice in its prevailing characteristics is mo
delled after the Italian style of architecture. Its
rounded windows, its projecting roof, square tow
ers or companiles, and the loggia, or front porch,
with its arched brick columns, give it a peculiar
and pleasing appearance. It is one hundred and
twenty-five feet lrunt, and one hundred feet from
Iront to rear. The principal story, where the school
rooms of the Collegiate Department is found, has a
lofty celling, and we are glad to see that the subject
of ventilation, and a lull supply of fresh air, hab
received attention throughout the whole house.—
Immediately in iront of thecentral door, is a passage
to a spacious and airy room, 40 feet by (>O, designed
for the Collegiate Department. It will accommo
date from 150 to 180 pupils, each at her own desk.—
On the same floor are four recitation rooms, two
rooms for musical instruction, and two parlors.—
The upper stories are as unfinished, though the en
terprising builders are going on with great energy,
and expect to present the whole building complete
by or before November Ist. In the meantime the
basement, which is all above ground, by the exca
vations of the earth in the rear, is ready for use. It
affords a large room 40 feet square, which is de
signed for a dining room ultimately, but will be used
at present for school purposes, till the other stories
can be thoroughly prepared for occupancy. It can
seat comfortably—each having her own desk—over
one hundred There are also two school rooms for
the Preparatory Department, about 20 by 40 feet,
that will accommodate from 30 to 40 girls each. We
are informed that the school will certainly com
mence in the building the 2nd of October, to-day.
We could not help thinking, if the rooms looked so
pleasing now, how delightful they must be, when
filled with some scores of bright and happy youDg
The Messrs. Gibson, who are the contractors for
this building, deserve great credit for the energy
and workmanlike character which they have dis
played in its erection. Had it not been for some
unforeseen delays in getting the ground ready to
commence the foundations, and the sickness which,
during the summer, afflicted a large number oi
their hands, it would have been completed by this
time. As it is, no structure of similar size and
character has ever been so energetically carried
forward in Virginia. Nor ceuld they have done it,
but by the aid of steam machinery.
The roof was tinned by Mr. C. H. Langley; the
furnaces, gas and fixtures are the workmanship of
Messrs. Moorpoor, Bowers & Bowden, under the
direction of Mr. C. D. Yale. As the furnaces are of
a new coostrnction, upon a principle so simple as
to recommend them to general adoption, and as the
credit of the invention belongs to one of our towns
men, Dr. Bolton, it may be interesting to explain
the plan on which they operate.
There is a brick wall enclosing on all sides a
space sonse 4 feet square. A large stove, not unlike
an ordinary Anthracite stove, is so fixed that it can
be supplied with coal through a door in this brick
vault, and an evaporating dish is placed on it so as
to be filled with water from without by a funnel and
pipe. The heat and smoke from the stove passes
into a large drum, and through that into another
drum, all of which are enclosed in the same vault;
and then the remainder of the interior space is filled
up with curls of iron cut oft' from sheets of the me
tal. The cold air from without is brought in by
means of a close box, and made to circulate freely
through these iron curl*; and then, by a system of
pipes, is distributed to the various rooms all through
the house. The effect is obvious. Toe stove be
comes heated, and its hot air, smoke, &c. heat the
other drums. These all communicate their heat by
conduction to the curls of sheet Iron, and the whole
presents an immense extent of heating surface —at a
very mild temperature. That a large volume of fresh
air from without is constantly warmed and thrown
into the rooms wherever the registers are opened ;
while, by the mildness of the heat, the dry and
unpleasant condition in which the atmosphere of
furnace-heated rooms is often found, is altogether
avoided. It is a similar principle to that heretofore
applied in the construction of boilers for locomotive
engines, presenting a very large heating surface
within quite a contracted space.
We observed an accomplished florist, Mr. Egge-
Ung, making his preparations to ornament the gar
den and other grounds. Mr. Davies, and Messrs.
McCloy &. Shaw, are doing the stone-work Mr.
Francis J. Barnes is preparing a very handsome
Iron railing tor the front. Messrs. Glenn Sc Davis,
who united with Mr. Joseph G. Watts to do the
brick-work, are rapidly drawing their labors to a
close. The whole establishment is an ornament to
Richmond, and an honor to thosa of our citizens
who have aided in establishing it. And we cannot
but believe that those who have expended so much
money and pains In providing an edifice for instruc
tion, will not fail ts employ every method to pro
mote the intellectual development of the pupils.—
The teachers are almost without an exception Sou
thern, as we lparn from an advertisement in our
column*; and their previous positions entitle them
to the confidence of the public as faithful, energetic
and accomplished instructors. We most cordially
wish this noble enterprise success, believing that
Richmond's honor and profit are intimately asso
ciated with the elevation and success of our schools.
Prkpariho for the Fair.—We are grat
ified to perceive that Mechanics of Richmond are
making extensive preparations for the two Fairs to
commence in this city on the 30th of October next.
Thero will be ample room In the building occupied
by the Virginia Mechanics Institute tor a great va
riety ol useful and ornamental articles, while spe
cimens of needle work, painting, etc.. will have
abundant space for display. At this Agricultural
Fair all heavy machinery will be exhibited, under
the superintendence of a competent committee to
be appointed tor that purpose. Let every estab
lishment that can do so, have something at these
Fairs.
Ovrnkoz. —We are informed that on Fri
day night laat, after the firs, some peraon threw a
atone through a window of a house oa Main street,
striking a child and iorticti&g severe injuries. The
same missile hit a lady on tho head with sefliclent
force to produce a coutnslon. It is a pity that the
perpetrator of such an outrage could not M discov
ered and summarily punished. It U one of the
vilest acta of rowdyism.
Stray Curs are as plenty in the streets,
both day and night, as blackberries la harvest If the
Council would station two netmen at each of the
market houses for a few weeks, they could do more
to rid the city of dogs, than the Police can do In a
7<*r-
Mayor's Court. —From and after to-day
the Mayor will hold his court at Lafayette Hall, at
ten o'clock A. M. Persona having business before
his honor will save time by noting this fact.
Locked Up.—John Kemp, a free negro,
baa bees confined in prison to answer for returning
to the State after having voluntarily left It.
Fikbd.—Bichard Cauthorn was fined ten
dollar* aad eotfa for selling goods by auction in 15th

Who ctruck Billy Pattbmoi* f—Mow
thin a year since • man waa robbed on the canal,
and another man who wee rappoeed to have rob
bed him mysteriously disappeared. It will be re
m*mb> r< d that treat fexcitement wee produced In
the connty of Henrico, and that three men were
tried and acquitted on the charge of hilling the
missing individual. A abort tieae since John Brown
ior met William Patterson at Julius Hise's, in the
crrunty, and charred him with having said that be,
B , bad borrowed Wm. Thorpe's cart on the night
of the robbery, and that there wa* blood found on
•aid cart on the morning following. P. denied the
•rruaation, and Browning thereupon struck him.
Timely interference prevented any serious result.
Rut it U now a fixed tact that John Browning struck
Billy Patterson.
Bobber Discovered.—One day last
week the deak of Mr. William W. Dunnavaftt was
forcibly entered and robbed of $190 in Bank notes,
and as one of Mr. D a servant* named Henry had
access to the room, be was suspected and lodged In
prison- Last Saturday morning another servant
named John, owned by Mr. Samuel Redford, otter
ed two $20 notes to an ice seller to change, who,
snspecting that all waa not right, kept the money
and informed Mr. Dunnarant of the fact. John was
immediately called up and questioned as to bow he
became possessed of the notes, and answered that
he got them of Henry, who was already in custody.
Henry was then punished to draw a confession from
him, but persisting in his innocence, John was
soundly chastised, and then acknowledged that he
had committed the robbery, giving such Information
as led to the recovery of #127 of the stolen money.
Hi was doubtless banded over to the Police, to be
tried for the offence.
Accidents.—A white boy fell from the
scaffolding of the new building corner of 11th and
Bank street* last Saturday morning and wa* seri
ously injured.
About 2 o'clock P. M. la*t Saturday, a lad seven
year* of age, had his right hand jammed between
two cars on Broad street and severely crushed.—
He waa attempting to get on the freight train at the
time of the accident.
All Moonshine.—Since the burning of
Mr. James Riley's factory last Friday night, a large
quantity of iron has been taken lrom the ruios and
concealed. Yesterday afternoon, Constable Lew
ellen having good reason to suspect Mosks Moon
shins of being the thief, called on Alderman Bin
ferd and procured a search warrant for the lost
iron. The warrant being obtained. Constable L.
secured the services of Officer Seal, and the two,
on searching Moonshine's house, found a large
quantity of the stolen iron concealed therein. They
then took M. to the cage, as also his servant woman
Nancy, who had a lot of the same good» in her pos
session. This case will come before the Mayor
at 10 o'clock this morning, and will no doubt be an
interesting one.
