They will be pleased to learn that the loss of the government patronage is by no means of no great importance as they imagine.

It begins to "set" better. Yesterday it was too much like a new Buit of store clothes, with all tho creases and fold-marks showing that they wero not made at Devlin's or Spenco's. It looks much better now, and the type used being all of large size it will become more popular with persons whose vision has been dimmed by age. Mr. H. L. Pelouze, tho enterprising type-founder of this city, we understand, furnished our neighbor's new outfit, and it speaks well for Richmond enterprise in that line. There is no need to go elsewhere for printing material, when it can be obtained on better terms at our own doors. The Enquirer hammers away at the I Legislature.
