t : sn of disloyalty brought against Senator
Sprague, for having, as it is alleged, engaged
iv blockade running, indulges in another
of its mad tirades of abuse against New
England and the saintly inhabitants
thereof. It accuses* them «f prolonging
the war for tho sake of gain, by blockade
running, and plunder. We think there
wa9 less plundering, and less trading with
the enemy, than it was natural to look for
iv such a war. It was by far the mildest
mannered war that was ever carried on ;
•nd had it been a little more rigorously
and rigorously prosecuted, it might have
been ended by McClellan in 1862. But
his Democratic method of making war j
was rather weak. Then, too, had
tbe war been brought to n speedy
conclusion, slavery would have con
tinued to curse the nation; and view- I
ing it from all points, we aro inclined to
beiieva that everything was ordered for I
the best. Had the Confederates yielded
earlier, slavery would not have been
abolished. To their stubbornness the
negro owes his freedom, even as the Chris
tian owes the blood of his Redeemer to the
vindictive malice of tho Chief Friests and
Scribes of Judea. The Enquirer thinks
that were the Confederate archives at
Washington closely examined into, things
would be found which would startle a
good many peop.e, if money has not been
thero before. Wo think the Enquirer
makes a good deal mora out of this mole
hill than is necessary. Of course, there
was blockade-runniDg and trading. The
government itself encouraged it by every
moans it could devise; as it was desirous
of saving all the cotton from the flames of
the raiders that it possibly could, to molli
fy England and keep her quiet. But
for the avarice of those who owned
the cotton in the South, and tho corrup
tion in official quarters in this section.
Tho war might havo terminated different
ly—therefore wo thank heaven that South
ern self-denial was not proof aaainst Yan
kee avarice ; but that they accepted our
broad, meat, quinine aud even gold, and
gavo us cotton in return to keep the Eng- I
ltsh and French factories in motion. After
pitching iuto our Yankee friends quite
fier-jely upon this account, aud accusing
the women of stealing window curtains,
table covers, and bed-quilts, (which we
hope they only borrowed and will return),
our contemporary thus concludes:
They talk, these Yankees do, at their Ply
mouth festivals, and other meetings, of devo
tion to country; and yet they havo among
themselves materials to convict many of them
selves of more heinous crimes against tbe gov 1
eminent they professed to serve, than they can
lay at the door of any Confederate who fought
against them.
Some people may say all this is unwise ; tbat
it opens old sores. Let them consider rather
whether what we say is true; and then how it
can be legitimate to suppress the truth, and
thereby contribute that much to the continued
power of a party which can only find its par
allel in the worst days of Republican (tea**, or
Revolutionary France.
We go for reconstruction; but so long as
there are two rules for the sections; immunity
for the rich but guilty Federal—fetters and
warder for the poor and accused Confederate,
there can be no real reconstruction.
" Plate sin with gold
And the strong lance of justice hurtles* breaks;
Arm It iv rags, a pigmy's straw doth pierce it."
The Enquirer makes a very unfair com
parison of the cost of the War Depart
ment for tho four years preceding and the
four years following the war. It has cost
two-thirds more since thac bafore. Well,
tbe pay of the soldiers has been doubled,
and the pay of officers has been largely in
creased, to correspond with the increased
price of living and the depreciated value
of paper money ; beside, the rank and file
as well as the officers of the army have
•sn doubled. This is a very small matter
harp upon, tbat political capital may
made for the Democracy. The shame
the thing is that the small army wo had
fore the war, in a time of profound
peace, when there was no need of soldiers
!uld have cost so much. Then
ler a Democratic administration,
use of soldiers at elections, James
was the first to use them. In the
Washington ho ordered out the
md had a number of Know
shot down in the streets. If there
me against liberty that has not
iin the name of Democracy, or
pt practice it has not resorted to

rail line of communication direct
shington, Iv speaking of the
3y between the Fredericksburg
vac compony and the Pennsyl
tral, it says:
c far from anything like an implicit
in the disinterestedness of the I'eun
sntrnl. It is coming here to make
out of us, and will doabtless acquire
derable power amongst us. But if
we desire Northern capital to come here, tbis
is of eourie to be expected. Capital is always
p.iwerfal, and just as Huntingdon A Co. will
become a power in the State through tbeir
road from Itichmond to the Ohio, so will the
Pennsylvania company be another power in
th* State when they shall run from Alexandria
South. And if a hundred thousand Northern
men come down here and buy lands from vi
tbey will wield a decided influence in oar po
litical and social interests. If we want tbe lat
ter we want tbe form, r.
The present line between Richmond md
Washington is a failure. Constantly the route
baa to be abandoned. For two weeks we have
been receiving our Northern mail over the
Orange and Alexandria and the Chesapeake
and Ohio roads. This delays tbat mail until
nearly dark, while Petersburg and the South
•ide lose twelve hours.
The change also at Acquia Creek is not
agreeable at any time, and the travel by water
is too tedious. We want a quick and sure
with the Northern cities, and
a consolidated line from our Northern to our
Southern border.
The Whig then declares that the policy
of the Fredericksburg road has been to
drive trade away from Itichmond and give
it to Baltimore ; and it clmsert By saying :
"Wo havo reflected somewhat carefully on
the advantages of introducing the Penn
sylvania Central into Virginia, and the re
sult of our reflections is, let them come ;"
and we join in tbe invitation.
The Whig has a very able article on the
public debt of tho State, which, after
showing that we shall bo able to resume
tbe payment of interest on January lwt,
1872, concludes with this highly honora
ble expression of sentiment:
Who then would, for the lake of an lnoon

The Bitjmhm lliniTl that the agricultural
la»d scrip donated by Congress, and over j
which the preachers are now quarrelling,
is not of sufficient Value to cause such a
scramble. It will not bring, according to j
its estimate based on the actual sales of
the scrip of other States, more than $160,- |
000. It recommends, however, that if the
fund be divided equally among tbe varioui i
institutions, that the Legislature shall so I
arrange ai to make it a compotatory conteit
arngng the friends of «ach—that the scrip
and not the proceeds of the sale of the
scrip shall be divided; and then the
friends of tho several institutions having
their interests at heart, will bid higher
and it will bring better prices, than if sold
in bulk for an equal distribution of the
money received. This appears to be a
very sensible plan, and we nopo it may be
adopted Wo see tha agricultural society
of the State is after the fund with a sharp
stick, too ; but if they beat tho proachers,
they will have only one more to overcome,
and their salvation will be secured boyond
the peradveutareof a doubt.
Tho Dispatch is astonished at the extra
ordinary conclusion arrived at by tho joint
committeo of tho General Assembly, ap
pointed to consider the subject of re-ap
portioning the State, that they cannot un
seat the Senators elected for four years.
It thinks they might as well declare that
they cannot impeacti tho Governor because
tie ia elected for four years. We confess
hat wo cannot perceive the analogy be
tween legislating men out of office against
whom no crime or misdemeanor is alleged,
and impeaching and removing an officer.
Wo will not pretend, however, to decide
betweeu the doctor of the Dispatch and
the multitude of doctors in our Legisla
ture ; but nevertheless it does seem
to us that the just and equitable course is
that recommended by tho committee.
Would a re-apportionment of the Con
gressional Districts next fall necesaa

If not then why of necessity should it va

In consequence of this early strain upon her sys- I

of death. She sallied forth from her wild mountain
home, to act tbe Good Samaritan, with this unknown |
j vegetable powder, which she claimed possessed a I
| wonderful power over all diseases fhcideut to the I
: female sex. Sho termed it "womb physic," with f
i which she proposed to cure all afflictions and de- I
rangcmonts of that organ, and kindred complaints, J
pais or charob. With such s ngnlar magic did she
relieve all who applied, that within a few years her j
I name and fame became known far and wide, and hnn- |
i dreds of suffering females applied for relief and re- 1
turned to their homes healthy and happy. Many j
j were anxious to know her gr* at secret, and large I
sums ef money were offered if she would divulge It ; |
but she stubbornly refused.
During her solitary life, she became intimate with
only one woman, a noted midwife some miles distant, |
She too gained quite a reputation for relieving the
suffering of her sex, and strango as it may appear,
she scarcely ever failed to cure those old chronic fe

The Medical Profession at large, hay* long felt th*
need of Just such a medicine, consequently it is set j
strange that they so eagerly prescribe and recom- j

If you oonld see the pile of smiling approvals and

hesitate to use them. This Female Regulator is

SMITH'S PATENT WELL FIXTURES!
The v«ry best arrangement ever introduced for
raising water from wells or cisterra. Of the seven
thousand already sold, net one has ever failed to
give perfect aud ent're jalistaction. If, after a
month's trial, the purchaser thiiks ho had rather
have a pump, a sweep or old fashioned windlass, we
will take back the WELL FIXTURE and refund the
money. It is adapted to wells of auv depth, aud is
sold f-r TWENTY DOLLARS, all complete and ready
DOTY'S CLOTHES WASHER.
The Peculiarities of this Machine: Ist. It is small-
It occupies but little more room than a common
wash tub. 2d. It is easily worked; a feeble woman
may sit dowu audwoik it; a llttlo girl can Bland
and operate the washer. Sd. It secures all the well
known benefits of using suds boiling hot. The hand
need uot touch the, water, either in washmp or
wringing, with the Universal Clothes Wringer at
tached; hence it cleanses ordinary liven in a few
! moments, at a single ( paration, and the woist parts
of collars and wristhau.ia so effectually, that seldom
any, aud never but little, rubbing is necessary.
There is no exaggeration in this statement, if tho
machine is used according to directions.
Prices : Wringer, $9; Washer, $16. Thus a com
plete Was'jer aud Wringer, each the best of its class,
is obtained for tU. Every family in the land should
