VIRGINIANS OF THE PAST AND PRES ENT DAY. It was but natural for the Yankee, lUNCgOFT, to full into the error which Mr. Murdoch exposes so ably and con vincingly In the article copied from "The Round Tabic" on the first page of t«-day's paper. A much stronger and more just, but still prejudiced mind that of De. Tocq.ukth.le— was led into the same error by Stith and Beveklet, whom he quotes as authorities for hi* animadversions against the Virginian "adventurers," iorgetting or being ig norant of the fact that only in modern times has the term been used in an op probrious sense. Originally it had no such meaning. Sir Walter Balcigh was an "adventurer." The name of Cavalier will forever be oftensive not only to the Roundhead of New England but to a certain class of Virginians as well, and even to some of the blooded stock, who. In our day, have been so bitten by democracy as to des pise their ancestors, and for n» better reason than because they wore pow dered hair. They would rebel against (jueen Victoria more quickly than their fathers rebelled against George III.— The late war has taught them literally nothing; they do not all discern the Signs of the times; and, what is worse, their number is increasing. it pleases us beyond measure to have the assurance of Mr. Mubdoch that "Vir ginia will remain for a century to come powerfully and immutably Cavalier." Our faith, we own, is weak. We live In Virginia; Mr. Murdoch does not.— Every day, we see with inexpressible pain the ancient order and the ancient habits of tluught crumbling into very dust. Free society ami republican in stitutions are doing their wonted and accursed work with shameful swiftness. Men do not regard their word, they are nothing like so jealous ot the point of honor as they were up to the very close of the war. Women, quite as virtuous as ever, we are glad to say,arc yet freer, bolder, plainer-spoken than they u«cd to be. Young gentlemen arc not near ly so deferential to young ladies a* was their wont in*;formcr times. Parents behold with well-grounded alarm tho almost universal decay of good man ners. Exceeding delicacy in conversa tion and in demeanor Is already a thing of tli3 dead pa*t. Social distinctions arc well-nigh abolished, and hourly the commercial rises above the aristocratic standard. For our part, we arc sick at heart over these thing.?! and, individu ally, lind no hope at all of a cure in even the "return to the Constitution." Tl c Yankee axe has brcn laid at the root of Cavalier society, and the "re dress of grievances" discoverable in the election of this or that candidate, under the existing order of things, can be but of the briefest and most incomplete character. If we sec no longer those stately men anil women of the colonial period, whose very presence inspired awe and a whole some sense of superiority; if the hust ings are no longer adorned by aristo- Jrats who could afford tc be statesmen tttead of politicians, and whose bear ing on the Court-green was, to use the expression of a commoner who remem ber* them well, that of gods, compared with the half-educated, wholly-selfish party hacks of the hour, tbe fact is • »c*reely less to be deplored than the general acquiescence ol the better class of Virginian* in .1 social and political condition of affairs which must of ne cessity be ephemeral. The overthrow of the ancient order is accepted without even a protest. Immersed in business and held head-downward to the Im perative but not noble duly ot winning bie.id.our i\iud«s, or r»tl* r iUct - *b* should be our leaders, can fio more measure and forecast the great revolt!, tlon going on before our eyes than the , veriest mole ot an editor who burrows in the dirt of a beVvspaper ofllcc. We I go to our seer«, but they prove no seer* ' In them i* no light. All men being i equal, and bread and debts being the t all-in all ot human life under the "c leap ' and nasty" republican system, wo go blindly and headlong we know not i whither. Our fathers, albeit they were Cavaliers and "adventurers", calculat ed the momentum of their revolution, , anticipated its progress, foresaw effect* In their causes and shaped tliein to wise ends. But we are too busy, too practi cal and short-haired to know anything but the new evangel "work, cat [and quit thinking." The subject is worthy of serious treat ment. We shall return to it again. Nots.—Since the above was written we have been pained to read in the Ex-. ' amincr& Inquirer of Wednesday last' some severe and unjust structures upon the author of the article on tlie Virginia Cavaliers. We can assure the writer in the Enquirer that he labors under a most absurd misapprehension. There does not live a more Intense anti-Purl tan than Mr. Murdocst, and of this a careful perusal ef hi* article on the Cav aliers Tvill convince any one not blind ed by passion. PAPERS AND PERIODICALS. Leonard Scott A Co., New York, have republished the July number of the Westminister Review. Couteuts: British Rule in India; Davidson's In troduction to the New Testament; Co operation applied to the dwellings of the people; Nitro Glycerine; the Mar- ' riage Laws of Great Britain; incai; Church and State ; the Spanish GipsyJ; and Contemporaiy Literature. One reads with amazement, in the Westminister, the progress of modern infidelity. We miss the scientific pa per* which formed its chief attraction in days by-gone, but the re viewsof con temporary literature are always inter esting. We receive regularly and with plea sure those useful agricultural month lies, the Karmer and Planter, Farmer's Garotte, Maryland Farmer and Ameri can Farmer. A number of prominent Virginians contribute to tli4 one last named. Petkrson for September, ahead of all its competitors, and with the prettiest froutispicce we have seen for many a day. The Dally Commercial Advertiser shows Dimitry's practised hand in the editorials, but is hardly as well made up as we could wish. Our friends will have to bestir themselves if they intend to compete with the elder Sjjowdkx, the best newspaper man in this State. Our ancient, stout and worthy friend, CRin-cnr-iKi.!), formerly of the Peters burg Express, sends**"** a copy of the first number of his new paper. "The Literary Pastime," published in Rich mond at $3 a year. Its appearance be tasys the skill and taste of its proprie tor. Its contents are very readable, and its ensemble is healthy and promising.— it looks like a New York Weekly, has the usual cuts, the octavo form, and other attractions of which have made Bonner's Ledger so popular. The sa lutatory is graceful and much in John R. Thompson's style. The poem about the baby in the bath, by Mrs. Mii.i.er of N. C, fa new name in letters to us) is worth the (tibscriptiou lor a year.— Mrs. Mart Bayard Clarke (Tenella) contributes liberally to this number, both in prose and poetry. Her name alone ought to make the paper, for she is beyond question the first literary wo man in the South, Miss Evans, Mrs. Warkiki.d and Mi'S.Dokset not excepted Virginians have now a chance to show whether they will sustain a literary pa per of their own, and we hope they will take away the reproach which has been justly cast upon them by giving a cor dial and paying support to the Pastime. Anxious as we arc to notice the pub lications sent to us and always will ing to give more than we receive, our space will not permit as to do so con tinually. Hereafter we shall try to make our paper on Itself the quid pro quo, and if we tail in this, our friends of the press must remember tnat we are compelled to consult the taste of sub scribers who do not care a great deal a bout literature and do not appreciate the fact that a main object of book and other notices is to inspire a thirst for something more elevating than politics so-called and news of the day. When any thing strikes us as particularly good, we shall be quite sure to call attention to it, but more than this we cannot for the future promise. WOES FOB WOMEN "Virginia Penny" has published in Boston a "Cyclopedia of Woman's Work," in which she mentions, among other occupations suitable and profita ble for women, straw-plaiting, which iv 1855 gave employment In Massachusetts to ten thousand people, who made no less than six millions of straw hats.— Willow ware, such as baskets Ac, is an other occupation for women and chil dren, being both easy and profitable.— Bee-culture might suit Southern wo men, most of the honey used in the Uni ted States being collected in the South. She also mentions the canning of fruit, and the making of preserves and pick les, jellies and jams tor sale M profita ble branches ol'lemale industry. Whore there is a will there is a way. Has any one seen a young lady applying earn estly and continuously for work, who did not sooner or later get plenty of it ' But it is so easy to be lazy, unheal thy and unhappy—a plague to jroureel* and to others. TIIAD DEAD. Tiiad Stevens died at his residence on Capitol Hill in Washington city pre cisely at midnight on Tuesday night last. He was one of the main pillars of Radicalism, which will, we hope, soon lollow him to the grave. We have known better men than Thaddeu*. BEYfdOUE'B LBTTEB. Setmoir has written his formal letter of acceptance. It is very good, very stiiaible, tat not up t) the Bi.air mark. JOHN RANDOLPH TUCKEB. From a pen and ink picture of some of tlie Virginia, delegates in the New York Convention, drawn by a corres pondent of the Cincinnati .Enquirer, we copy the fo,lowing: By his sidofjou note a brown, olive face, with an eye that seems to promise something more than common, and yet ever and anon with a merry twinkle that portrays a quick perception ol hu mor. That is J. Randolph i itcker, bet ter known as Ran Tucket-, of Virginia, never In Congress or federal office, but well known in tlie party contents otthe Old Dominion as a trenchant writer and a stump speaker, unrivalled for humor, pathos and power ofurgument. 1 have board all the great Stumper* of the Un ion, but none superior to Ran 'fucker. But politics with him is not a profession nor has it ever been. He married young, has a large family, lias no mo ney, and is a close ami unremitting worker of the law, and neglects busi ness for nothing else, nnd whether be lo*re a jury or a Court of Appeals will hold his own with the best. Outside ot this, he Is delightlitl, a humorist, a mi mic, full ol innocent flln und glee .is a child, a rare acquisition tort din ncr par ty, but yet in his most festive moments doiiig nothing, saying nothing Inconsis tent with his duty a? a professor ot re ligion. Outside of Ills State he is little known, but all through the Old Domin ion every body knows and likes Ran TucKer. Abolish your mean and ma lignant disfranchisements and this gift ed son of Old Virginia will make his mark In the public councils. Mr. Tucker is the- counterpart of Syd ney Smith; he has the same humor, the same learning, the same piety. Mrs. StmioNS could no more resist Tccker than she could Smith. Nothing, not even himself, can withstand his riotous humor, which carries everything before it in a perfect tempest of fun. He is withal a profound lawyer and, what is most rare now-a-days, a politic il think er, not perhaps of the first, but of a very high order. His reading is extensive, and so much of it as relates to his pro fession, is admirably digested. Best of all, he is a sincere, earnest, working Christian. A pure and noble man, he is an honor to his State, which lie has served aild we hope will again serve as Attorney General. IIIXMBOLD. THE ADVEETISINQ GIANT. This noted person is at Long Branch, where he was "tackled" by the corres pondent of the New York Evening Mail, with whom, it appears, he conversed as follows: "Yes, sir—l believe in thorough, en ergetic, wholesale advertising. 1 am now spending fourteen hundred dollars a day in advertising, and every iiolla.- of it returns to my pocket and brings an other dollar with it." ■•How do you distribute this large amount?" "About one thousand in papers of all kinds. V'hc extra four hundred go for bill posters and rock-painters HIT over the country." "You must have quite a corps of ad vertising agents." "I keep a dozen men at work on the general management, watching adver tisements, keeping them tip, varying thenvand soon. Have a couple dozen traveling about tlie country, painting and posting bills." "But surely you do not spend money attherateof fourteen hundred a day the year round f" "No. Last yearl spent twohundr id thousand, and will spend about the same this year. Came to New York aooitt, five rears ago—take a cigar, sir?" . 1.,, i ~ ** "Thank you." "Came to New York five 3-car* ago; bad forty thousand dollars; spent thir ty-nine thousand in fitting up my store; had a thousand lelt; went down to Printing House Square; made contracts lor ten thousand dollars' worth ot ad vertising—and I never wanted for mo ney to meet tie contracts as they be came due." "A little reckless, eh?" "But I won, sir." "And you deserved to win." One man In fifty thousand has the nerve to do as Mr. Itclmbold did. DIES OF THE DIBEASS CALLED LOVE Last week a negro named Patrick Henry died in the city jail at Peters burg. Pr. Smith, physician to the jail testified-that tlie deceased complained of nothing particularly, but lost his ap petite, and seemed to be in a low mel ancholy condition. The doctor could persuade him to eat nothing, and his impression was that the negro died from morose depression and general debility. Saw him every day and watch ed him very closely—bit saw no dis ease. The jailor, Mr. Uyrani said : The only complaint he ever heard from him, even up to the evening of his death, was an occasional pain iv the head. livery attention was given him both by Dr. Smith and himself, and be was waited on by his fellow prisoners. The Index, adds.- The eorroncrs Jury expressed them selves as satisfied with tliis evidence, and decided not to hear the testimony of the men who were confined iv jail with the deceased. A verdict of death from natural cause was rendered. This natural cause is roughly guessed to use Dr. Bagby's phrase, to have been •'thcDisease called Love," though he Is the first negro we ever heard of, who died of such a disease. He is known to have been attached to a white woman of low character, who was also recently in jail. When lie heard that she was released, he took to grid, ate nothing and died. A BABID BEBEL CAPTAIN. A Yankee correspondent, who was caught in the late terrible storm on tho Baltimore & Ohio road, and inhospita bly entertained by tlie citizen* living near Mt. Airy, concludes his more or lets untruthful letter thus: Across the country I met several reb els, and talked with them. They curs ed me for a "damned Yaiikee"and heat ed me most unkindly In every instance. As an example of their sentiments, let. in,- give you one specimen. Saitl Ito a rebel captain : "I suppose you are ■ Seymour man." "Seymour hell !"said In:'; "go on with your nigger show over there in the United States. We have nothing to do with you. We don't care a ( )_n which nagger you elect, Seymour or Grant." "Ilowareyou Copperheads" thought 1. Yours, truly. J. M. D. APOLOGY. An attack of acute cucumbeiitis must be our apology for not pitching into old Wki.is, this week, as we promised- Wait a bit. HILES 0' BEILLY. Wo have not been able to get up much pure griel over this deceased person.— He was a clever writer, but a wretched Irishman-one of the "loil" sort.

What the North made out of the South before the late war, may be learn ed from a Northern writer, who speak ing of the few years before 1861, says: "We sent South yearly, of domestic goods. Zi 10,000,000 ; of imported goods, $10(1,000.003. We charged her as inter est and brokerage, $33,000,000, and we were in receipt of money from Southern t revelers, *t>3,36i),0H().

The New York Round Table, a litera ry journal of Republican tendencies makes tins following admission : "If we closely compare and weigh the two present candidates. Grant and Sey mour, and are able to consider their merits apart from political bias it is im possible to deny teat the latter, by nat ural intclcctiial power, by education, by social culture, by experience of public affairs, is Infinitely the fitter man of the two, to be President of the United Slates. The Commercial AdvtrtUer, one of the shrcwdcX newspapers ill the country understood the real workings of the Convention. It says : "Tlie Herald is mistaken as to whoso game has been played and won. It was Pendleton's not Seymour's. It Iff true Pendleton did not succeed In getting tho nomination lor himself, but 111 a.l else h* was absolutely dictator of the movements of the Convention.
