The Best New York. Weekly Published.
The New York Day-Book is a straightforward
Radical Democratic paper, with a larger circa
lotion than any other Democratic Journal ever
published, on this continent, and it enters on
the threshold of 1888 more prosperous and more
hopeful of the great muse It upholds than ever
before. Standing on the Declaration of Inde
pendence, that "all (white) men are equal," and
therefore entitled to equal rlghta, it is opposed
to all forms and degrees of special legislation
that conflict with this grand central truth of
Dernocraey, and over all and above all, does it
combat that monstrous treason to American
liberty, which, thrusting the negro element In
to our political system must of necessity wreck
the whole mighty fabric left us by our fathers.
God has created white men superior. and ne
groes inferior, and therefore all the efforts of
the past six years to abolish His work and
equalize with negroes—every law violated, eve
ry State Constitution overthrown, every life
sacrificed, and every dollar expended; are ne
cessarily Just so many steps towards national
suicide; and thesimple and awful pro. lem now
upon us !spud this—shall we recover our rea
son and retrace our steps, or march on to Mon
grelism, social anarchy, and the total ruin of
our country,
The Day 'Rook, therefttre, demands the resto:
ration of the "Uhion as it was"—et Union of co
equal States upon the white basis, as the only
hope, and the only means posible tinder heaven
for saving the grand ideas of 1178, and the fund
amental priclples of American liberty, and If
the real freemen, and the earnest believers in
that sacred and glorious cause In which the
-men of the Revolution ofThred np their lives,
wilt now labor to expose the ignorazice,deinsion
and treason of the Mongrel party, it will sue
ceed, and the white Republic o' Washington
be restored again in all' Its original influence
and grandeur.
The Day Book will, hOwever, hereafter be
more than ever devoted to all the varied purpo
ses of a news paper, Conscious that It reach
es thousands of families who take no other
Journal, beyond perhaps their local paper, it
will continue and improve its "News of the
Week" Summary, so as to present a transcript
of the World's events in each Issue. Its "Fain
tly Department" will embrace the best original
and selected stories. Its "Agricultural Depart
ment!' will be fully. sustained, and being the
only paper of ils class male up expressly for
errantry circulation, It 15 confident it is worth

Frightful Condition of the Country.
Atrocious Conduct of the Negroes.
In order to realize the situation in Virgin
ia, iris only necessary to remain a few days
in the capital, seeing the eventn here trans
piring and hearing, through the most reliable
sources, of the state of things in the interior.
I have met several . Northem men, who, atter
a sojourn of only a week or snore in "Dis
trict No. 1," have become fully convinced of
the destructive tendency of Radicalised,
though before numbered among its strongest
During the holiday season now drawing to
a dose the negroes have held high carnival
all over the State. Abandoning their work
on Christmas eve, they flocked to the villages
and country seats, or roamed over the coun
try, and have not-vet returned to the planks
lions upon which they were employed. On
a trip over one of the lending lines of travel,
your correspondent saw at every station
crowds of bbicks basking. on the sunny side
of the depots; linddleirtogether in front of
whiskey shops, or in noisy groups tilling the
stores of low junk dealers. Occasionally a
dozen men and women were gathered togeth
er on the:Platform dancing breakdowns and
jigs to the music- of the bano, or singing
such offensive airs
_as "John Brown's body
lies a-mouldering in the grave," to the - an
noyance and discomfort of gentlemen and
ladies whose business compelled them to
meet the train. These good for nothing vag
abonds say they expected to receive from the
government on Christmas day a piece of land,
rations of flour and bacon, and a mule, upon
which capital they designed to set up in busi
ness for themselves. This property was to
be obtained by the confiscation of goods of
wealthy white men who engaged in the re
bellion. Many were much disappointed nt
their fititurty to get possession of their prom
istsl homestead and stock.
Thrown out of employment by their own
act, and.spending what little money they had
saved for Christmas in buying gewgaws and
gingerbread, hundreds of freedmen found
themselves, on the- second day of the holi
days, hungry and penniless. No wonder,
then, that the improvident wretches scattered
themselves over the country to plunder and
to destroy. On every side the ears of the
traveler were greeted with reports of meat
houses robbed, pantries ransacked, poultry
yards pillaged, hog pens gutted, granaries
broken open, barns burned, and even of
dwelling houses laid in ashes by the "wards
of the nation." • Rarely were-the-offenders
apprehended,. and' even in these instances,
hppelesta of obtaining Justice under' the pres
ent regime, the poor whites frequently allow
ed the rascals to go without prosecutions.
The negro is actually advised to such
means of obtaining subsistence by the per=
sons who now control his votes. Hear the
rascally demagogue Hunnicutt, a man who
once occupied the sacred desk and wore the
livery of Jesus, pandering to the appetite of
a mob of blacks. 'At a meeting held at Hun-
nieutt Hall, on Friday night, after adverting
at length upon the wrongs (I) of the colored
race, he said : "There is corn and wheat, end.
flour add bacon, and turkeys and chickens,
and wood and coal in the State, and the col
ored people willhare them before they seilialarre."
This declaration was received with deafening
shouts of applause by the int:tabled crowd of
negroes. Al few of the more ,sensible white
Republicans ventured to protest that "these
good people would not steal," but their voice
was hushed in the hoarse murmur of the
blacks. and amid shouts of applause
cutt repeated hissafenalye.wordsling, "It
is so—all history and nature prove Abut it is.
so. These people do not info to starve."
Let the thinking men of the North remem
ber that the man who thus advises thieving,
and even adds the influence of his ministeri
al calling to defend it, isrie leading Republi
can in the State of Virginia, and will probab
ly be the negro candidate for Governor under
the new Constitution..

The following extract from the Richmond
Examiner fully sustains what has been pre
viously despatched of the reign of terror in
Virginia :
"The accounts which are coming up from
nearly.all quarters are enough to curdle the
blood of every humane man. The eairest
land under the sun lies in wretchedness and
ruin. A. domain which • has teemed with
abundance is now a region of universal pail
pertlom. Frightful destitution everywhere
prevails, and gaunt, grim starvation already
shows its horrid front, though the winter has
just begun. Tie labor of the multitude of
negmes eonsiwt in forages on the barns and
barnyards of the whites ; live stock are dis

thieves and robbers, who are organizing in

victims, and already formidable even to the
military. A war of white and black is im

plication of horrors. It will be a war of col

war over bread. It will appeal to every con

that the prospect for the winter before the
white and colored people in Alabama and
Mississippi is terrible to contemplate. One
intelligent• planter estimates that there is
hardly enough provisions in the whole South
to last over four months. lie had himself
already given notice to one hundred of his
negro laborers that it would be necessary
for them to leave before Christmas, as his
supply of corn and bacon was nearly exhaust
ed, and he had no means of providing longer
for them. A number of planters bad served
a similar notice on their hands, and the re
sult is that thousands of negroes will be left
in a starving condition yew soon. Bread ri
ots are anticipated, and possibly bloodshed.
A planter in Alabama writes that not one in
a hundred of his class will be in a position to
continue the cultivation of cotton next year.
He states that the utter ruin that prevails can
not be adequately conceived. The 'present
low price of cotton, the enhanced cost of its
cnltivation, the impost tax of two and a half
per cent., and the high rate of interest charg
ed on borrowed capital, have left five-sixths
of the planters in' Alabama, Mississippi,

On the Peninsula, unless relieved front some

Robbery and Murder by a Negro to South.
amigos County, Virginia. .
A most diabolical attempt at murder and
successful robbery ivas perpetrated in South
ampton, on Sunday night last, by a brutal
negm, on the person of one of the clerks in
Mr. Pretlow's store. We get our Information
from the passengers by last night's train on
the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, from
which it appears that on Sunday night a ne
gro by the name of Henry Williams went to
Mr. Pretlow's store, and aroused the clerk,
who was asleep. On being admitted he
stated that he wanted some camphor for his
wife, who was sick. The clerk, unsuspicious
of anything, being wrong, put up the cam
phor, and the neero handed him n one dollar
bill; the clerk going to the cash drawer for
change was in a bending position, when Wil
liams drew n pistol and -,shot him, the ball
taking effect in the neck. ' The object of the
negro was robbery, as he immediately took
possession of the money-drawer, and carried
off a bag of money, containing about eighty
dollarsin gold, silver and currency, with
which he made off. The physician attending
the wounded young man pronounced the
. wound to be fatal. We understand that the
negro Williams made his appearance early
yesterday morning at the store of Mr. S. 11.

Negro Outrages In North Carolina.
The Raleigh (North Carolina) Sentinel of

A LAWYER who was somewhat. forgetful,
having been engaged to plead. the cause of
an offender, began by saying : know the
prisoner at the bar, and he bears the charac

to him that the prisoner was his client, when
he immediately continued : "But what great

Too ThrE.—The world is crazy for show.
There is not one person in a thousand who
dares fall back on his real, simple self for
power to get through the world and exact en
joyment as he goes along. There is too much
living in the eyes of other people. There is
no end to the aping, the mimicry, the false
airs, and the superficial arts. It requires rare
courage, we admit, to live according to one's
enlightened convictions in these days. Un
less yon consent to join in the general cheat,
you are jostled out of reach, there is no room
for you among the great mob of pretenders.
If a man dares to live within his means, and is
resolute in his purpose not to appear more
than he really is, let hide be applauded.

"WILL rr WASH ?"—This is a question the
ladies often ask concerning dry goods. The
query may be 'extended to men, women and
society. Of how many may it be said that
they would not wash—wash in manners,
morals, speech, heart, and soul. Filth and
corruption abound more than is known at an
ordinary glance. As the world goes some
people are much better, and some worse than
they appear. The really clear-through good
ban be counted on the early numerals. The
many .won't wash. It wouldn't be safe to
ablute. Nothing personal is intended to the
reader: •
Is Bridgeport, Conn., a young lady called
into the store of a young gentleman for the
purpose of being escorted up the street by
him. .Of course the young man was all ex
cited and confused, especially as he was at
•that montentjust going to the revenue office
to procure a store license. He picked up his
hat and hastily starting tiny the door,remarked
to the young lady as follows: "Just wait a
few minutes until I go to the revenue office
for a license; I will not be gone long." The
lady called him back, and a§tonished him by
saying: "Hold on, lam not ready for a li
cense yet. Wait• a few* days." The young
man is still waiting, but the probability is he
will not have to remain in doubt much long
"WHEN women become as bad as they can
be, they are called prostitutes. When young
men, in like manner, become as bad ,as they
can be, they are too often excused by short
sighted people, on some foolish pretext, and
readily admitted into the'tirst society." This,
too, when their habits are notorious, and it
is even said that some girls regard them in a
romantic light on account of tlieif adventures.
For this latter tact, if a fact, novel reading of
the baser sort will probably account;"but
what will account for the contradiction which
those are guilty of who, a% bile they readily
excuse young men, whose power ot restraint
is generally stronger than that of women,
show no mercy to a woman who may be
purely unfortunate; and who smile with ap
proval- upon young men who commit acts
whielvshould banish them fraai• the society
of the moral and virtubus."
A PAIR of those entertaining ladiei who

and who are so delightfully importunate, so
sweetly "boreus," called a short time since at
the (Ace of a young lawyer, for the purpose
of getting' him to subscribe. "Indeed, ladies,"
said he, "the partnership of .which I am but
an humble member, has lately been so im
prudent as to issue a new work of their own,
which, in consequence of the enormous ex

merits, &T., has completely crippled us."
"Then, perhaps," replied the angelic canvass
