This paper has from the first advised our merchants and manufacturers to form an association for the purpose of promoting trade and building up local industries, but they have taken no public step in this direction. Other and more prosperous cities have such associations, and they work well for progress. Why is it that Richmond should lag behind, and seemingly allow every merchant and manufacturer to "paddle his own canoe?" Except the business-men combine and work together, this city will always be in the low-grounds. It will not do for neighbors to antagonize ...

At 2 o'clock Dr. Duggan was visiting Mrs. McKay, a patient, at 37 Taylor street, when Weidler came up and asked Benjamin Earle, Dr. Duggan's colored driver, who sat in the doctor's buggy at the curb, when Dr. Duggan would be out. Earle said in about five minutes. Weidler stood in front of the house until Dr. Duggan appeared. He then walked up to Dr. Duggan and the two shook hands on the sidewalk. Dr. Duggan appeared annoyed at what Weidler said to him. "You are cold-blooded," Weidler said with spirit to Dr. Duggan, "but I'll warm you up." The doctor made no reply, but turned to enter his carriage. As he did so he saw Weidler draw a pistol that he had been holding in his right hand behind his back and aim it at ...

He is old enough to keep cool aud think twice before he speaks, and walk twenty miles before he writes a letter. There is good sense in the following editorial of the National Republican of to-day: The letter of President Cleveland to Mayor Francis, of St. Louis, withdrawing his acceptance of an invitation from the citizens of that city and the Grand Array of the Republic, removes a subject of contention of the most disagreeable character. It is to he regretted that any menace or threat on the part o...

It is very evident th.it a large majority of the people of Virginia will struggle long against Free Trade. It is a question of great interest to all, and one that is being practically considered by those who have heretofore thought little on the subject. The Mugwump press of the North generally favors a tariff reform that is a long stride to Free Trade, and in the Southern States there are many who want cheap goods in exchange for their staple, cotton, but in the main there is a high tide against Mr. Carlisle's old scheme.

The management is in no wise responsible for what appears in it.] Editor Truth .-—Cannot something be done to prevent trains coming in the city from running so fast? Last Sunday I saw an excursion train pass the Old Pump-House, on the Richmond and Alleghany railroad, running at a high speed, and nearly running over two children this side of Hollywood. On Sundays especially, there are so many persons in that vicinity that especial caution should be taken.
