chances of living out of "
amongst them. But allhottgh the lit* head
of whit*? men absorb all the ofin.e- '
not enough for them, and this induce* the
strife which here, as elsewhere in the south,
is characterized hy lesion, disorder, and
wrsonal violence. This Convention was a
Lr sample of them all. Such was the mil
tual bate and violence amongst the members
of this lK>dv that the police had to he called
in to keep the peace and prevent the mutual
t tattering and bruising of one another by the
brotherhood of plunderers.
But for the offices there would be no such
Convention; or if possibly there might be
one, there would l>e no such disorder and
fighting that so resemble the strife of dogs
over the oflal from the kitchen.
Outsiders wonder at some of t he doings of
this refined body of men. The animus of
the motions and voting is not understood.
There is great rivalry amongst the leaders
?! att and Porter are understood to be hit
ter enemies, and Porter resorted to the
dodge of claiming more power and prog for
native Virginians. But they did not like the
idea of being defended by Portki: and used
as Pokter uses the negro? to get upon then
shoulders. So they wouldn't combine with
him, but preferred Platt ; and thus 1 ou
ter had a great fall.
This Convention afforded the opportunity
to skirmish for position. It was supi>oscd
that the man who should receivcthe lenticu
lar endorsement of the Convention would Ik*
highly commended to General Grant, the
Convention would declare vehemently in
favor of his reelection. The main point
aimed at was to get the recommendation ot
the Convention for Vice-President on the
Grant ticket. Senator Lewis and Congress
man Porter were the most prominent aspi
rants. Porter, early in the day. seeing that
he wax "gone up," magnanimously with
drew his " claims." But he was still bound
to tight his way for <4 position." He cannot
be reelected to Congress from this district,
and he must " hold on " to get something
else. It is supposed he hud an eye upon
Congressman Plait's district, which created
iu part the eolduess between them.
Nobody, we suppose, believes that Porter
had or has any idea that he stands the slight
est chance of being nominated for Viee-Pre
nident on Grant's ticket. That nomination
was only sought as a stepping-stone to some
valuable position at the hands of the Presi
dent. We would not say the same of Sena
tor Lewis. We think he lias hopes, lie is
prouder and more vain than Porter. We
should like to see him on Grant's ticket, and
il that were elected we should lind some con
solation iu the fact that the senator would
cease to represent Virgiuia. It would be
agreeable to him and his constituents. It can
hardly be comfortable to him so grossly to mis
represent, as he does, his State and the men
who elected and eontided iu him. lie is too
much of a Lewis for that. And Virginia
would be too happy to send another man in
his place.
The Convention really interested every
calm and reflecting person by the faithful
mauner iu which it reflected the bad passions
of the greed and strife for office, and the de
moralizing influences of motives which in
duce men to array themseves against public
order and welfare for personal gain? a de
moralization vastly aggravated by the trick
ery of combining an inferior and uneducated
race against the race to which those who are
working to perpetuate this combination be
long. There is a moral in the lessons ol this
Convention which should not be lost upon
the Radicals themselves. They are in this
State carrying on a war that makes
tor Virginia i>olitics a totally ditlerent con
dition of thiugs from that in the northern
States. They are doing that which injures
them as well as us, and their only hope of
lifting themselves out of the consequences
they bring upon the community is that they
may be fed out of the Federal treasury.
They are, therefore, all the more . stimulated
to bitter strife. They would escape the trou
bles they invoke by ensconsing themselves
iu the " bomb-proofs " of Federal oliiee; and
they are terrified at the bare idea of being
defeated in endeavoring to secure that grate
ful and safe retreat. But there are so many
more that are disappointed than get places
that it is time they were beginning to think
that it is better to go to work for their own
State than to be holding negro meetings,
und deluding them with insincere blather in
order to prove their devotion to Grant and
his offices.
It is evident, however, that the Radical
party in Virginia has its back broken. There
is uothing left it but to fight over the Fede
ral crumbs shaken out of the table-cloth by
the dinlug-room servant.
Republican Treachery.
In the Republican National Convention
held at Chicago in 18G8 it was resolved that
while the conditions of reconstruction might
be prescribed by Congress, yet the States
which had remained loyal must determine
each for itself ichat portion of its citizens
should enjoy the elective franchise.
On this platform the Republican party
triumphed, and Congress immediately after
wards so amended the Constitution as to for
bid the disfranchisement by any State of any
class or portion of its citizens localise of race
or color !
This wa? treachery by the Republican
Congress to their own people of the North.
It bad been deemed unsafe at Chicago to
deny to the northern States the right to de
termine who should vote; but after deluding
them with the declaration tiiut that right
should not be impaired, the" unscrupulous
party leaders utterly repudiated the proinUo
and took away the right.
First, however, the party representing the
Republican voters committed a gross outrage
upon the Federal Constitution and common
justice by declaring that the northern States
should not be denied the right to say who
should exercise the right to vote, leaving out
the southern Slates as fit to be deprived of|
that right. As if in a republic such discrimi
nation between the States? the infliction of
pains and restrictions upon some and the be
stowing of favors uj>on others? was to be at
all allowed. That would be fatal to republi
canism.
So, there was trcachery all around. The
Jfort h was treacherous to the Constitution j
. ? ' - ' ? ? ' ' ' '? i ? )
!? ! the South, awl
o the Xortli, becau-c, a\ ^<;j*cmpuloux aw
K it discover^ q,nt it could not so
liseriminate between the JStito#*. But It is
he .1 g*i of dishonesty ami fhmd, and this bit
?f party history, though infamous, is notsur
irising,
Exactly.
A ft or the war we took the ground tint
here was nothing left to hold the Republi
iaii party together but the offices. They hud
iccomplished every 'thing tiiat they were or
ganized to do.
This was true. The office.ii? the "cohesive
power of the public plunder" ? were strong
in cementing the i?rty together for n time.
Vet. even that cement was not sufficient
without the aid of the resentments, preju
dices and hates inspired by the war, to pro
long the existence of the party. The artful
ind unprincipled politician.^ saw this, and
[o ?k steps accordingly for the interval be
tween the war and the election of General
Grant. They then made sure of getting
him under their control, and prevailed upon
Inm to practice the very policy which they
had pursued so vindictively. The measures
for exciting distrust of the South? the plans
for misrepresenting and slandering the south
ern people through suborned witnesses and
dishonest judges? were all vigorously and
cunningly put in force; and we know the
result. Thus far in this way has been
maintained the supremacy of the Radical
party. IJut, as the mere prejudices of sec
tions and rancors of war cannot be en
during. the capital in trade of Radicalism is
nearly all exhausted, save the offices, and
they art* as much or more the mot ivewf oj>
position than of support to the Radical Ad
ministration.
So that a change i- come over the country
at last, and we find high authorities declar
ing that the Republican party litis performed
its mission, and that now there must be new
issues and new motives for the formal ion and
[government of jvirties. The New York Tri
!>Mne(high Republican authority) boldly pro
I'laiins:
'?The Republican party lias thus accom
plished its original object, with very much
more. It will soon be transformed or dis-j
integrated by reason of its complete, con
clusive successes. A party with this name
may outlast the century, but if must contem
plate other objects anil work to other ends
han those which united and animated the
lirpublicans of *<>?>. Vourprcsciil' duty,
rotmg men, is to read, observe, and think,
fiie party cries daily raised of 'Keep the
lag Hying." ' Stick to the party ! ' 'So break
ng ranks ! ' Ac., Ac., appeal rather to men's
passions than tla ir reason. They are mainly
.mpellcd bv those who expect to* retain their
irescnt offices or achieve better through the
larty organization. A good many of those
low most zealous for maintaining the Re
publican organization are building thelombs
>f prophets whom they stoned 'not many
,ears ago."
And lest there should be some vague ideas
ibout what issues and motives may now ac
uate parties the Tribune says :
" Free trade vs. protection ; universal am
icsty ; the one-term principle ; the subordi
nation of military to civil authority; the use
>f official patronage to achieve purely per
sonal or narrowly partisan ends; retrench
ment of public expenditures; better safe
guards against defalcation and peculation?
these and other such should now have their
turn."
The Tribune omits the grand Issue of the !
Jay, which 3Ir. Tri Jiiu i.Ldid not fail to put
in its proper grade of importance? viz., the
restoration of local State authority and the
restraining of the Federal power within its
constitutional boundaries.
But the main point to which we desired to
call public attention was the prominent one
that the Republican party has, it is confessed,
accomplished its mission. It would have
ilied with the war but that it was fed with
the extremely dangerous and explosive fluid
of the war-'- eumphinc." We believe that
is about to be repudiated, and that if the
Republican partv with Git ant at its head
iloes triumph, it must be with the under
standing that there must be something better
than the sectional bates of the nation to sus
tain it. Rut we believe the death-blow has
been struck to both General Grant and the
Republican party. He might have saved
himself if he had acted independently and
honestly in accordance with what we liclieve
to have been his own instincts; but he was
misled. He allowed himself to be last tied
to the party of vlndietiveness :,nd the policy
of persecutions, and he will have to shoot
over Niagara with them.
Church and Shockoe Hills.
We have in this city two eminences, two
largely populated hills, that are separated
from each other by a deep ravine. For all
purposes of social and commercial inter
course they have no comumuicaMon worthy
of the name with one another. It Is of very
great importance t hat there should he way
between them that would be easy and com
modious, so that the two populations could
combine in respect to social intercourse and
in all matters relating to commerce and pub*
lie improvement. This is indeed a grand
desideratum. -It would unquestionably give
increased strength and prosperity to the city.
One of the great evils that she now suffers from
is the division of her people into clftns, sepa
rated from one another by deep seams in
the surface of the earth. They do not con
fer with one another, and cannot he com
bined with energy upon anything. The
people of Richmond are the most industrious
people we ever knew ; but they live on seven
hills. In the morning they come from those
hills to the centre of business, and after
working veiy hard for the day they all with
draw to their several hiils, knowing, socially,
very little of one another, and seldom con
sulting together about any matter of general
interest.
A good way of communication between
the two biggest hills would work a great
revolution.
IIow shall that way be established? It
should pass from a central point on one hill
to a central point on the other. To conform
to this condition Broad street is clearly indi
cated. This idea will startle a great many
people, but we want to invite the attention
of all to the subject. If any better way can
be devised, then let that be the way. Take
Broad street, and it answers exactly every
requisite for a communication between these
hills. It is indeed intersected by a deep
ravine, but no line that can be named will
avoid that.
Grading will be necessary on both bills to
a compromise breast liu^ between the lowest
and tlje highest points on the street To that
compromise line the grade must be worked
up from the lowest point by tilling in. The
work would be neither impracticable nor
extravagant. The street could be arched for
the passage of railroad trains and even for
one or more cross streets, though it is not
probable that arches for the streets will be
uecessary.
If in this way Broad street were made
easily passable with horse-cars to and from
Church and Shockoe Hills, every one may
see what a great public accommodation
would be gained, and how the hills would
thrive. The horse railway track might be
built on the Mechanicsville line as far out ait
i . 7 : :

hand, It might go to the' Baptist College and
i\? far beyond a* might foe demanded by tra
vel. Pastengere from Church Hill would b?H
promptly conveyed to Ninth street, where,
with a Uwtafer ticket, they wcvdtlje In a, lit- J
tie while set down at the post-afticc or at any
place of ImsinesM 011 Main street.
This subject. i* one of very great interest.
The job looks like a big one, examined
through Richmond spectacles. So little lias
been done in the way of grading here that
jwople arc Heightened when anything i" that
line Is proposed. They do not know what
great things may bo accomplished by a little
expenditure of money and muscle. Chicago
lifted herself up everywhere about eight feet.
It was a great labor; but the people of
Chicago seeing that it ought to he done, did
not^tand long talking about it, but went to
work and did if.
So' we in Richmond will lunve lo dn. This
connection between the two great hills is ne
necessary. It must be made sooner or later,
and the sooner we have the benefit of it the
sooner we shall know its great value. "Wei
invite attention to the subject because we
know that the sooner the people begin to
study the proposition the earlier it will be
approved and accomplished.
France and Pkussia.? The story about
trouble between these two nations has been
contradicted and repeated. "We believe that
there i< this much in the matter : France has,
by her increased and ineroa>ing armauent,
and through the speeches of M. Tijikks,
>hown what is construed by Uismakck into j
a desire for revenge; and lie has given in- J
timation to the efleet that if France goes on j
with these .manifestations, Prussia will re
occupy France. As France is so completely j
at the mercy of Prussia we suppose that it i
1 will not incur the horrors of a reoceupalion '
j by the Prussians. There am be no further
trouble, we suppose, than an interchange of
notes, and a submission by France to the |
exigency of her situation.
.Still, the world may inquire whether Pru? j
sia means to hold the position of supervisor !
over France to check her and keep her down j
at will ? If so, why not annex her at once y !
That would be less re vol tin jr. >

FROM WASHINGTON.
The Xcn Civil Service Rules.
The Republican majority in Congress are
disheartened over the adoption by the Presi
dent of the new civil service rules recom
mended by the Advisory Board, and his or
der for their enforcement. It is pivdiud
that it will take much from the enthusiasm
of the presidential campaln, and many Re
publican members privately continue to de
nounce the reform as a humbug.
The Grant Meeting i? Sew Yorli.
A Washington letter in t he Baltimore
Gazette says :
? A prominent Xew York politician (who
is here) says one of the principal agencies
employed in New York all day yesterday,
rallying for the office-holders' mass meeting
at Cooper Institute, to-night, has been the
army of letter-carriers connected with the
post-ofliec. They visit every pan of ti.e
city. The Federal employes in the custom
house and internal revenue services were
under orders to exert all their industry to
swell the meeting.
?A telegram was received here to-day from
some of the custom-house patriots in Xew
York requesting that the Administration
representatives unite in a dispatch to the
chairman of the great mass meeting to-night
in Cooper Institute endorsing President
Grant's administration and urging his r<
noinination. Such a paper was passed around
and signed by some, but Mr. Garfield and
live other Kepublii-an representatives of Ohio,
3Ir. Dawes and General Banks of Massaehu
setts.gand Mr. Blair of Miciiigau, declined t.i
sign the paper/'
Southern Claims Coin mission? A very
bail Case, iiidtefl.
The Southern Claims Commission yester
day examined the cases of Camilla Whipple,
of Philadelphia, widow and executrix of the
late Engineer Whipple, United States navy,
for property taken in Virginia to the amount
of SM.000; Aldridge James, of Fauquier
county, Va? amounting to ?11,657: and
Christopher Uerhardt, of liichmond, Va.,
amounting to nearly twelvcthousnid dollars.
In the latier case the proceedings were enli
vened, tirst, by the energy of gesture and
speech with winch the claimant test i lied as
to his loyalty ; and secondly, by the reading
of a sworn statement, addressed by him, in
the fall of 1SG1, to the Confederate Secre
tary of War, applying for the discharge
of "his son from the Virginia volunteers
on the ground that he would be more ser
viceable to the Confederacy by aiding his
father to till a contract for the fabrication of
swords and cartridge-boxes. This paper,
furnished from the rebel archives in posses
sion of the War Department, had a demoral
izing effect upon the claimant, whose atlor
ncys (Messrs. Downman and Weaver^at once
abandoned the case 011 the ground that the
claimant's loyalty to the southern cause was
too clearly asserted ten years ago to Ik* dis
proved now. The commissioners also de
clined to allow the* claimant to perjure him
self further before them, and closed the case.
The commissioners have issued a circular
to their sub-commissioners in the South cau
tioning them against certifying to deposi
tions prepared beforehand and for their sig
nature, or against the recording of testimony
in any other than the real language of the
witnesses, and for the correction of other
omissions and irregularities in the papers
upon which important questions of loyalty
and fact are to be decided.? Washington Pa
triol.
Gossip About Fred. Douglass.
Referring to the high ground taken by the
colored element in demanding recognition
from the Republican party, the Washington
correspondent of the Boston Globe (Admin
istration) writes :
" Some talk of recognizing the influence
of this element by the appointment of oue
of their number to an important position
has been canvassed. A suggestion that meets
with unexpected favor, in high places urges
the selection of Frederick Douglass to till
the mission at St. Petersburg, soon to be
made vacant by Governor Curtin's return
home."
And the correspondent bikes pains to add
" that there is no doubt of the serious char
acter of this proposition, or of the favor
with which it is regarded/'

Donations of Lands to Wasiiixotox and
Lee University.? A few days since Governor
F. S. Stockdale, of Iudianola, Texa?, gave
040 acres of Iaild for the benefit of the Texas
Chair of Applied Mathematics in Washing
ton and Lee University. He had previously
given $500 cash to the University. The cash
endowment of the chair now "amounts to
?20,000, and is to be raised to ?50,000. the
amount required for a chair.
The effort which is now being made in this
State for the endowment of the Louisiana
Chair of Modem Languages has already se
cured near $25,000, and the subscribers will
receive in return tuition and other college
fees on liberal terms. ? Xew Orleans Pica
