To the Working men.

--Listen! Let us ask you a few practical questions: Who gives Messrs. Rham, Talbot. Archer and Anderson orders for machinery, and thus enables them to pay you your wages? The South--the Railroad Presidents, the Sugar Planters and Cotton Growers of the South. Where would you be, and where would the manufactures of Richmond be, without the patronage of the South? You, in this monetary crisis, would now be idle on the streets, and Richmond lose her position as the manufacturing city of the South. Do our manufacturers get any orders from the North? Why did the Lester Sewing Machine establishment locate itself in this Southern town? Above all, what will be the effect upon the minds of Southern men, in Louisiana, Georgia. Alabama, &c., when they see submissionists elected from a city whose very existence is dependent upon Southern traffic and Southern patronage? Ponder on these things, and you cannot fail to appreciate and act upon your honest convictions. Anvil.

Are not the Northern manufacturers your rivals and competitors? fe 4--1t
