Loxnox, Feb. 12,The correspondent
of the Times at St. Petersburg, telegraphs
as follows: ''lean state postivdy that
orders have been sent to the Russian
transports to enter Constantinople. Count
Schouvaloff has been ordered to explain
to Lord Derby that as the great powers
have, determined to 'send their fleets to
Constantinople, Russia is obliged to adopt
similar measures, but Russia has no in
tention of aggro rating the situation."
The Times, in a leading article, says a
portion of the British fleet will proceed to
Constantinople; that it is unavoidable
after what has occurred. The leaders
points out that Lord Derby emphasised
his statement that the other powers may
uot consider it necessary to avail them
selves of the firiuans for the admission of
their fleets, although they had applied for
them. It is possible, therefore, that the
British and Russian fleets alone may he

The following original and suggestive
resolutions were adopted at a public meet
ing in Hanover county, Va., some days
1. That our people have been so much
impoverished by the reckless use of artifi
cial fertilizers, reliance on worthless la
bor, extravagance in catiug, drinking, and
dress endeavoring to 'maintain mite hel
ium customs and habits), idleness, indo
lence, and dissipation, that we really
believe that they are unable to bear a
heavier burden of taxes than they now
2. That many of our fellow-citizens and
a majority of our legislators have exer
cised their minds and directed their ener
gies for ro long a time in devising ways
and means, plans and schemer, devices
and subterfuges, to evade the payment of
debts, we verily believe their thoughts
can run in no other channel ; and any
serious proposition to meet an honest
pecuniary obligation would be esteemed
by them as au evidence of demoralization
as conclusive as fulling from grace.
3. That the gloom and despondency
have settled like a funeral-pall up
on which our people have been greatly
increased by the puerile "motions" ; the
poiutless, windy, and egotistical speeches;
the selfish and uncompromising conduct.;
the waste of precious time, obliviousness
to the vital emergencies of the hour, and
dallving with the patience and confidence
of the people, by our legislators.

The tomb at Mount Vernon containing
the remains of Washington, has been con

if any attempt is made to enter the tomb.
This precaution was taken mainly because

to steal the remains of Lincoln from the
tomb at Springfield, 111.

The Davidson Record, well known to the
people of iJavidson county as their campaign
want of the business men and of the interests of
the countv. The time has come when almost
! every county lind it indispensable to have a
public journal oj its own to represent its inter
ests in the various ad'.iirs of business, local and
general. There is no county in the State that
would not be greatly benefited by a journar
within its bounds especially devoted to the pro
motion of the local interests of the community.
Such a paper appeals very strongly to the par
tial iTy and pride of the hection it serves; and
every citizen should give it his countenance
and support it liberally, as a means of increa
ing its usefulness and extending its influence at
home tnd abroad. The stronger it becomes
the more beneficial it will prove; and as the
money rep ircd for its support is far less than
the material good it does, it ia the best invest
ment any county can make.
The Record will of necessity take part in
the ilitics of the country. If it is the duty of
every man to keep himself well informed in
respect to puhlie affairs, and to take a decided,
and manly part therein, it is especially the
duty of the editor of a newspaper faithfully
to investigate all questions oLpublic concern,
and give to his readeis the facts of the same.
The undersigned pledges himself to be true in
this regard. He will not knowingly deceive
his readers for the sakeif party or anything
else; bijt by laying before them the facts, as he
may enabled to obtain them, will endeavor to
aid all to net wisely for the general good. As
political matters now stand, his personal con
victions are most decidedly in acirord with the
views and feelings of the Democratic Conserva"
tive party. He believes that the efforts of thi
party in 1S7G wrenched from the grasp of tyr
ants and corruptionists in high places the civil
liberty that we now enjoy. He regards that
great victory as second only tor4hat gained by
the fathers of 1776. The danger was immi
nent, the constant tendency fataj, but the cour
age, wisdoiu and devotion of the Conservative
party proved itself equal to the occasion, and
gloriously rescued the imperiled liberties of
the people. V hile that party shall continue
more pure ahd truly patriotic than any otler
he intends to be fully identified with-it.
But the main .design of The Record is to serve
the county of Davidson in all the wavs it may
