T.

STKAXliK TO SAY, tills same Mr. .Tames Harbour, against whoso bill Mr. Daniel made this incen diary speccli in tlie Senate, is now on tlie State ticket with him for Lieutenant Governor. He then read the proceed ings of a Conservative convention at Lynchburg that nominated Mr. Ran dolph Tucker for Congress, where green back resolutions were presented and supported by Mr. Daniel and unani mously adopted by the convention, de nouncing national banks, substituting greenbacks for national-hank notes, mak ing greenbacks receivable in payment of all dents, puiilio'and private, demanding the repeal of tlio resumption net of Jan uary, 1S7S, and that all bonds shall bo paid oil, not in coin, but in legal-tender currency, lie then referred to the STATEMENT OF Mil.

At Face's Ware house lu Lynchburg, during (he canvass of 1870, at a Funder Mass-nieellng, Mr. Daniel, W. C. Koane (colored), and Kuv. Y. B. I (errlck (colored), among -others were on Ibe stind. Dining the meeting Mr. Daniel, arose mill iuviled the two colored men to him, -adzed each by the build, and marched to the front, of (he stage, where In- dramatically exclaimed : "When the best men of both races unite in behalf of a cause It must prevail." Mr. Hlair denied the rigid of Mr. Dan iel to draw the color line in the face of I he above occurrence. In conclusion be said the Beadjiisler platform was broad and liberal, and upon It all men, Demo cratic and Id-publican, while nnd color ad, could stand, because it was promo tive of their common good. Mr. Blair's speech was replete with classic allusions and amusing anecdotes, which were both eiileiiaiiiing anil in structive to the vast 'cl'owdr wlinin he held till the conclusion 'or Ids spea-li.

There can be no doubt that the spontaneous and almost universal expression of sorrow in Hie South has made a jirofoiiud iin luession uiion tlie North.' A'c were at first surprised that a people who had been ho lately our enemies on the battle field, nnd who were still our antagonists nt the ballot box, should have any deep er feeling on the subject than I lie natu ral revulsion with which the human mind receives tlie intelligence of great crimes. If the shooting- of President Oarltrld hail excited no more indignation in that quarter than (lie killing of the C.ar of JJussia produced, many of us would have been not in Hie least sur prised. Wc all remember that the kill ing of President Lincoln was received by Ibe South with only faint symptoms of regret. We are aide now to see why a people steeped in blood of their ow n and hot with the passions of war which had ended most disastrously for them could not lie 1 expected to lament very bitterly the death of one whom they re gardcJ their principal adversary, they liave since learned and acknowledged that when Lincoln fell Ibey lost their most influential friend, and I lint.

That the temper of Southern soci ty lias acquired a far dilVerent tone was known to many of us, but was not fell and recognized by any in tlio proper measure until the disaster of Hie 2nd of July called us all to the bouse of mourn ing. The evidences of alilictioli in Ihe lately rebellious Slates arc so nuiiierom, so uiiall'ected ami so long-continued that no possible doubt remains that they are of one family with us in the sincerity of a common sorrow.

Making Money. Some people can hardly make a living, and some lay up money. Why isll? Into a village of n few' hundred Inhabi tants, a young man came and was cm ploved as clerk iu the store; he lived there fifty years and laid up .tlnu.OOO. Oilier men worked as ban), hut did not lay up money. Near Hie v illage was a large and beau tiful farm. The owner of it had il from his father, lie did not drink or gamble, ami y et lie couht not make a living, and so borrow nl money, and to secure ii gave a mortgage ou tin- farm. In a few yens llie I'm in w as sold and lie was obliged In move away. A Scotchman, wilh 1ml little money and a largo family, passed by and saw tlie house was vacant and struck a bargain with the owner. He began to work, to save and pay, and lu feu or twelve years lie was Ihe entire owner, Then lie went on and laid up money, and now Is a rich man. The art of making monev is one that should be carefully studied. If you take a dollar and lend it out at 0 per cent. In tens!,, il will double itself in ill years. If you take a dollar and buy something w ith it, ami then sell Ihal at a prolll, and keep ou doing so, you Increase your capital. These three ways are the foun dation ways of inoiiey-nuikliig, All business s in one of these three forma. Those who succeed the best' nre those w ho know the most about what ibev do.
