WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 14, 1870.

The War.
The latent telegram* "how that affairs are
no better for poor France. She is given up
by all the great Towers. Russia, from
Which Favrb led the public to suppose
nomc hope would come, is particularly
pointed in its upbraiding of the French Re
public, and no one oilers countenance or
encouragement whose friendship is worth a
rusk. Just as we expected. The Prus
sians are gathering about the capital of
France, and she will have to drink the bit
ter dregs of the cup prepared by the con
queror for her. Her Republicanism, idle
as it is, is the cause, to a great extent, of the
coldness and aversion of the crowned heads.
The Conservatives, The Enquirer, and
the Radicals.
Pome weeks since the Enquirer was
brought out by some doubts expressed as
to its position, and declared if?elf emphati
cally as acting with the Conservative party. |
It earnestly proclaimed that it was with any
and all who avowed tiieir opposition to the
Republican party, and its editor cooperated
with the Conservatives in their recent or
g mization. It said :
"Certain Journals -eem to be anxious to
misrepresent the Enquirer. They have
alleged that we have demanded a change ol
the name of 'Conservative' to 'Demo
cratic,' and that we oppose the election o!
any candidate who will not avow himself to
tK' a Democrat. The readers of the En
quirer very well know that both of the-e
representations are untrue."
Again, it further proclaimed its political
relations thus :
?' We have repeatedlv declared not onlv
our willingness to support members of t he
ohl W hie party, hut our readiness to Mi;.
tain them with as much alacrity as if they
h id been life-long members of the Demo
cratic partv. provided they announce the
purpose of continued opposition to hepub
lieai ism. Bv Republicanism. whenever v\ e
use the word, we wish t > be tinderstomlas
including not only Kadicahsm, but all shade*
of Republicanism, even those that are most
? mildlv drawn.' No eaudidate who is not
opposed to Republicanism in this sense, be
he former Whig or Democrat, can receive
our support i and any candidate, 110 miittei
how fiercelv or vehemently hig he may
"have been In former years, or how reso
lutely he mav now refuse to take the name
of Democrat, will be cheerfully and cor
<liallv sustained by us if lifc clcclui ? >1 > J
sent and future hostility to Republicanism,
both radical and mild.
Here, then, the Enquirer indignantly de
nied that it was anxious to change the
name of the Conservative party, and it pro
claims its willinsness to support old Whigs,
provided they declare their opposition to
Republicanism, 'lbere was, therefore, no
thing in the way to obstruct the Enquirer
in giving its hearty support to the Conser
vative party. That party is opposed to the
Republican party. The phraseology em
ployed bv the Enquirer was absurdly ex
acting?ail Conservatives being opposed to
Radicalism? but the professions of that pa
per were taken as a declaration of alliance
with the Conservative party? that party
bcinir, according to the Enquirers own de
finition, exactly what thut paper would have
It to be. _
And yet, notwithstanding this, the En
quirer has directed its editorial labor
chiefly to the disparagement of the Conser
vatives, to a depreciation of the results of
their great victory in '09, and to predic
tions of their defeat. Yesterday that paper
went furtlierthan it has yet gone. It assails
the Conservative Executive Committee,
ridicules their advice to the party, and, on
the other hand, praises the Republican Exe
cutive Committee as such that we no
??longer have that superiority of talent,
?? and ability, and character, that, we once
??claimed."* And are there any new names
on the Republican committee to excite
the Enquirers admiration ? Are Messrs.
Rives, Stearns, Wickuam, and Hugues.
recent accessions to Republicanism, and
has any new manifestation of intellectual
superiority appeared from them to show
that they have surpassed themselves, that
the Enquirer should find fresh cause for
admiration of the Republican Committee.'
Are they not the old stagers, so familiar
that even- harness mark is known to all on
the road?
Turning to the Conservative side, the En
quirer finds nothing to admire, and it de
clares that it has no faith in some of the
Conservative leaders. On that poiut these
distrusted ones may reciprocate the com
pliment to some of the carpers and sore- 1
heads who follow the lead ol the Enquirer ,
and, while attempting the disparagement ol
the Conservative party, affect to believe that
if we only had the Democratic party in the
field the State would be safe !
This sort of aspersion of the Conserva
tives, coupled with eulogies ot the Repub
licans, praise of Mr. Hughes's letter, and
of the Republican address, are strange
things from a newspaper which has, in the
clearest aud most emphatic manner, de
clared that it would support with alacrity
any man who received a nomination who
declared his opposition to the Republican
party. Anything but Republicanism, the
Enquirer's steady prayer seeming to be
" from that good Lord deliver us ! ''
The address of the Republican party,
which the Enquirer calls "able," is not
marked for anything above mediocrity,
aud it is full of fallacies and mis
statements. One that is conspicuous i
| the charge that Virginia got admit
f ted into Congress through deception,
pretending to be Republican. This is
simply false. There was no such pretense
ever made by Virginia. The people of Vir
ginia opposed Radicalism with unflagging
consistency aud determination. The great
campaign of was carried on openly and
above board by the Conservatives on the
one side and Radicals on the oth*?r. The
outrageous proscriptiveness of the Repub
lican party caused some of its members to
leave it and join the Conservatives? these
recruits bearing the name of " True Re
publicans." These fought together, and
overcame the Republicans.
General Grant secured to us the oppor
tunity of voting out the most obnoxious
clauses of the Constitution, ilis liberality
towards Virginia in this particular was
called his "Virginia policy," and that we
sustained, never professing to be anything
but Conservative, acting without respect to
party distinctions to save Virginia from mis
rule. Through all the rigid investigations
of the Committee on Reconstruction it
never was asserted or admitted that Vir
ginia was Republican by any Conservative.
How, then, was there any deception or
hypocrisy in what Virginia did ?
And Mr. Hughes's address that the En
quirer lauds so, what is it but a smooth
arrangement of plausible ideas that are but
sophistry. Its strongest point relates to
the Enquirer's party? the Democratic?
which Mr. Hughes asserts has not hardly
a plank of its old platform left to stand
upon. The revolutionized and centralized
Government has, he contends, wiped out
it* issue?. Mr. Hughes belonged to that
partv, and his excuse lor bis present atti
tude Is that there being no longer any of the
principles of that party left, he Inds no
alternative but to go headlong into the Re
publican party, the supporter of the power

authority, with the right of that Oo\er

and as soon as the means are in hand this
State-poor as she is, whose public debt is
' suspended, and a great number of whose
white citizens, having some property left
them, have been unable to educate their
own children-will carry out the public
school system faithfully.
We can understand why Rives & '
raise a rumpuss about the school system.

with a sense of wrong, and the trick sub

harmony of the Conservative partt on any
pretext whatever needs to be u .itched.
General Titus.
This gentleman, who sent to Warrenton
;he package of blank papers bearing the in
scription on the outside ?3,800, writes a let
ter ot defence to the Warrenton True Index,
to which the Index replies. The letter
states :
First. That Titus bought the Gordon land
and paid ten per cent, of the purchase mo
ney, 81,538; that the contract required a
forfeiture of ten per cent, byeither party
who should fail on the day the one-third
cash payment was to be made (1st Febru
ary) : that on that day he came to fulfill his
contract, but Captain Garden was not ready
to make the title j:ood; yet he (Titus) did
not exact the ten per cent, forfeiture. After
along delay, he says Captain Gardrn in
formed him that everything was ready ; and
i:i reply, he (Titus) appointed a day when
he would pay the money. This, he asserts,
was the u first and only one" of what the
Index had called his repeated promises.
[The Index replies that the ostensible
reason for not making the cash payment
was an old deed which was alledged to be
a linn upon tl\e land ; that this was
promptly arranged and Titus notitied of the
fact ; and that after this he promised lour
several times that the money would soon
lie paid. The ten per cent, forfeiture was
in accordance with the common practice,
aud not inserted out of any sharpness 011
the part of Captain Garden*.]
Second. Titus coufesses the bogus pack
age. His explanation is that he was about
to put up the money ($3,800) for Captain
Garden when his attorney (General Davis,
we suppose,) warned hiin against it by re
marking that the arrival in Warrenton of
such a sum by express for him (Titus)
would be noised about immediately, and
some person (" Rowley's counsel or some
other disposed to give him trouble ") would
attach it. Then the lucky idea possessed
him of making up the bogus package, and
the man that attached it, said he to the
man who advised him, " may treat the
crowd at my (his) expense." This he styles
44 a master stroke of genius ? always er
ratic." Ingenious General Titus.
Thus explaining the matter in this way,
he declares that the day after Captain Gar
den attached the package General Davis
came to Warrenton with the money in
tended for the one-third payment; but
that Captain Garden declined to give such
release of the incumbrances as his attorney
demanded, remarking that Titus already
was in possession of the property, which
Titus denies.
This is the whole of Titus's story. We
have noticed this affair to give one instance
of the many purchases of land made in
Virginia by men who have shuffled with
the owners. An instance has just occurred
in this vicinity, in addition to many others.
When Titus payB for this Fauquier farm
he will vindicate himself. But he, too, is
said to have complained of the people of
Virgiuia, saying he could not live amongst
them. This jis the very common explana
tion of those who fail to meet their obliga
tions. These shufflers either mean some
kind of fraud, or are very simple when they
go boasting about and buying lands for
which they cannot pay. They do injury by
?? ? ? ? ? I .
?t ~T ? ? ' if'-"
their unfounded Imputations upon the dis
position# and conduct of the people of Vir
ginia, which they make as an excuse for
their own faithless acts.
While there are such land speculators in
almost every neiehborhood, it is gratttying
to know that from various parts of the
North there are immigrants into Virginia
who have made good purchases honestly
and faithfully, and who have become useful
and estimable citizens of Virginia. Thoy
are not men of " genius " like Titus.
Thk Augusta District.? The Hon. 3Lr.
Mtlnes having signified his determination
not again to be a candidate for Congress, a
number of citizens of Augusta have ad
dressed a letter to the Hon. A. II. II.
Stuart, asking him to allow his name to be
used in connection with the position. In a
letter clearly nnd concisely conservative?
for which we have not room? he declares
that it the invitation of the signers be ascer
tained to be in accordance with the general
wish of the people of the district, he will
not feel at liberty to decline to serve.
Wooden Pavements . ? Somebody is
always bringing forward a new wooden
pavement, and one after another all have
proved failures. In San Francisco a com
mittee of the city government has reported
in favor of the Stow pavement and against
the Nicholson. It is of little import. Nichol
son's will soon " play out,'' and Stow's will
have its day and final repudiation. It is
not in the nature of wood to be made ever a
durable and satisfactory pavement. After
all the trials that have been made, the ques
tion is between the square granite blocks
and the rolled stones. The former are very
durable, but they wear so smooth that in
wet or icy weather it is difficult for horses
to keep their feet upon them. In this par
ticular the round-stone pavement has the
advantage. In smoothness and ease of mo
tion of vehicles running upon it, the granite
block pavement is the most agreeable to the
passenger, but it is always more trying to j
the horse and more perilous to him than '
the round-stone pavement. "We are of
opinion that up to the present day no pave
ment has been discovered, take it all in all,
that is superior to the round, or rolled, or j
cobble-stone pavement.
Massachusetts? Letter of Acceptance
from Wendell Phillips. ? Boston, Septem
ber 12.? Wendell Phillips accepts the Labor
Reform nomination for Governor in the l'ol
| lowing letter :
" 1 have no wish to be Governor of Mas
sachusetts, and flittering as is this confi
dence, I thoroughly dislike to have my name
drawn into party politics, for 1 belong to
no political party ; but I see nothing in
your platform from which I dissent, ana the
struggle which underlies your movement
has my fullest and heartiest sympathy.
Capital and labor are partners? not ene
mies. They stand face to face in order to
brine about a fair division ol common
profit.
<4I am fully convinced that hitherto legis
lation has leaned too much? leaned most
unfairly? to the side of capital. Hereafter
we should be impartial. Law should do all
it can to give the masses more leisure, more
complete education, better opportunities,
and a fair share of profits. It is a shame to
our Christian city and civilization for our
social system to "provide and expect that
one wan ot seventy years of age should be
lord of many thousands of dollars, while
hundreds of other men, who have made as
{rood use of their talents and opportunities,
lean on charity for their daily bread.
t( Of course there must be irregularities,
but the best mind< and hearts of the land
should give themselves to the work of
changing this gross injustice, this appalling
irregularity. I feel sure the readiest way
to turn the public thought and effort into
this channel i> for the workingmen to or
ganize a political party. No social quests n
ever gets fearlessly treated here until we
make politics turn on it. The real Ame
rican college is the ballot-box, and on ques
tions like these a political party is the surest
and the readiest, if not the only way to stir
discussion and secure improvement! If my
name will strengthen vour movement you
are welcome to it. Allow me to add that
thousrh working for a large vote, if we fail
we should not be discouraged by a small
one. Last year's experience shows your
strength, and the anti-slavery movement
proves how quickly a correct principle wins
assent if earnest men work for it.
[Signed] '* Wendell Phillips."
Republican Split in Missouri. ? The Re
publican party in Missouri is hopelessly
split, the point at issue being; whether t he
e.\i>tiug disfranchisements in Mie Stale J
should be maintained or abrogated. Tn the
State Convention two resolutions? majority
and minority? were reported, and on the
question of' adoption tlie split came? 439
delegates voting to adopt the minority reso
lution, which declares the time arrived in
Missouri tor a removal of all political disa
bilities, and 342 delegates voting against
that resolution and in favor of the majority
report, which virtually endorses a con
tinuance of existing restrictions. Senator
Drake, it is almost superfluous to say, led
the proscriptionist wing. Senator Schurz
led the enfranchisement party, and under
his guidance a secession movement took
place, the Convention splitting in two
bodies, which met in separate apartments,
adopted different platforms, and nominated
different candidates for the governorship,
the present executive, McClurg, receiving
the proscriptionist. and B. Grata Brown
the enfanchisemcnt nomination. The
Democrats have held no Convention, nor .
will they, but in all probability throw their I
vote in iUvor of the liberal candidate, Mr. I
Brown. The appearances indicate that
he will carry the State by a good majority,
which all real friends of a government "of
the people will earnestly desire.
Death ok a Virginian.? Dr. Powhatan
P. Starke, who died at his residence 011
Park avenue, in this city, 011 Saturday
afternoon last, in the forty-seventh year of
his age, was a native of \ irginia. lie came
to this city soon after the close of the war,
and by his genial manners and gentlemanly
deportment made many warm friends, lie
was the 1'ast Grand Master of the Masonic
Grand Lodge of Virginia. Ilis funeral
took place yesterday afternoon from St.
Paul's church. After the funeral the re
mains were placed 011 board the Norfolk
steamer fou conveyance to that city for in
terment. They were escorted to the boat
by Maryland No. 1 Commandery and by
delegations from Baltimore .No. 2 and Monu
mental .No. 3 Commanderies, of this city.
Dr. Starke had been for some time past en
gaged in the insurance business in Balti
more.? Baltimore tiun of yesterday.
The Strasbourg Cathedral, Clock, and
Library.? Une ol" the most lamentable re
sults of the siege of Strasbourg, leaving out
of view the loss of human life, is the ilijury
which the bombardment has inflieted upon
the noble cathedral and its wonderful astro
nomical clock. The vast cathedral which,
perhaps, more than any other one thinir,
has made the name of Strasbourg celebrated,
is one of the finest Gothic buildings in Eu
rope. It was founded A. D. 504. The choir
was built by Charlemagne, probably about
A. D. 80U, though it was not completed until
1439. The material of which the cathedral
is built is a brown stone, very much resem
bling our Connecticut Portland freestone,
so extensively used in Fifth avenue. It was
obtained from a quarry at Wassebonnc, in
the vallev of Couronne, a few miles from
Strasbourg. The architect of the existing
edifice was JErwin von Steinbach, of Baden.
One John If u ells, of Cologne, was the
architect of the peerless tower. Its spire is
the loftiest in the world- Its height, 466
feet, surpasses St. Peter's, and is about
equal to that of the Great Pyramid. The
greater part of the entire structure was de
stroyed oy lightning In 1007, and the restored
edifice was begun in 1015, and completed in
1439. The cathedral is in every part richly
decorated with sculptures, and the western
front, rising to a height of 230 feet, is, or
was, particularly fine with its wealth of
statue*, ornamental carvings, and bjis-re
liefs. It has a circular window 48 feet in
diameter. The Prussian heavy artillery has
?made, it is said, a ruin of part of the" vast
building.
The astronomical clock, the product of a
German clockmaker in about 1550, is a mar
vel of Ingenuity and mechanicat skill, and
has no counterpart. It performs not only
the ordinary service of a clock. but exhibits
the days, and the months, and the years,
the process of the seasons, thp signs of the
zodiac, and the names and movements of
the heavenly bodies. At each quarter-hour
! an angel comes out and strikes one stroke
j on a Dell ; at every hour another angel
! comes and strikes twice ; and at 12, meri
dian, a figure of Christ appears, accompa
nied by the twelve apostles, all ol whom
move around a central point and pass in.
out of sight, by another door. The stroke of
twelve being given, and a cock flaps his
wings and crows.
I The clock is enormous in size, like every
' thing else connected with the vast cathe
dral, and is invisible from the outside street,
! the spectator passing through the nave of
j the cathedral to see if. It has suffered fVom
' lire and violence before the present year,
having been out of repair ancUmotionless
bince the revolution of 1793 until the year
, 1842, when it wns repaired by a watchmaker
of Bas-Iihin, and has been in operation
since. It is to be hoped that this ingenious
Eiece of mechanism has not been Irrepara
lv injured by the present bombardment.
The loss of the Strasbourg library? a vast
collection of 800.000 volumes, including
many collections of rare and curious monk
ish parchments? is total and irreparable. Tt
can never be replaced by any collection
; hereafter made. It was the slow result of
f a thousand years, and its destruction by
j fire, caused by the Prussian hot-shot, is
like the burning of the Alexandrian library
in this, that of a great number of the works
destroyed no duplicates can ever be ob
tained.? Hartford Times .
The Miser.? The New York papers tell
of the discovery of the dead body of an old
man named Mayo in a tenement house in
that city which had been so long dead that
it was partly devoured by worms and rats.
There was firmly clasped in the hands of
the dead man an old stocking containing in
specie the accumulations of his parsimony,
amounting to SO, 000. The stiffened fingers
cracked and snapped as the officers
wrenched this money from the old miser's
grasp.

2?TA TAINTED ATMOSPHERE.?
Walarlous fevers are most prevalent In ihe fall.
Heavy 3<nd unwholesome exhalations then arise
from the earth, and thy great disparity between
the temperature of day and night predisposes ihe
system, enfeebled by the summer heats, to epi
demic diseases. The secretive organs, the liver
especially, are apt at this period of the ye<r to
become Inert and sluggish, and all the bodily
powers require renovation. The best, Indeed the I
only protection against the morbid Influences of
the season, is a wholesome medicated stimulant. I
I're-en inent among the restoratives of this class,
and Indeed roremost among the remedial <tnd pre
ventive medicines of modern t-mes, stands IIoS
TK rTKK'S sTOMACH f'l f TEttS. Its reputation
is ro-ex en6lve with the Western Hemisphere ; it
has been a stmdtrd a>tic!e for twenty years: its
sales (as m >y be nsoert ilntd by the revenue rc- !
turns) are far larger than lhose of any other pr>- j
prietary preparation on this continent; and the
testimony in its fav>r embraces letters of appro- I
vul 'rom the most distinguished members of all
the learned professions and from we'l-known re
sidents of almost, every city In the Union. These
are Its erf dentlals. To state *vhatlt Is dating to
preveut and assuage the sufferings of the human
family would require more sp tee than can be
given to the subject h re. ihe dyepeotlc. the bil
ious, the nervous the weak and emaciated, the
desponding, the broken-down, tludiu Its renova
ting and reguUt'ng properties a sure and Imme
diate means of relief. It la a pure vegetable spe
cific, at once cafe and patent, and for which the
whole materia medlca affords no substitute.
