THK GOVKHNOR A VIRGINIAS! 1
Rid you ever I If this is not impudence
we don't know what is. Denying its im
pudence wo are forced to conclude tbat
"our handsome Governor" considers bim
■elf nothing in the government of tho
State, which we are far from denying.
We are assured by the Philadelphia Age,
through the columns of the Enquirer, that
"Virginia is in the hands of Virginians."
We deny it, so far as the Governor is con
cerned; for he is a carpet-bagger of tho first
water, and, until sometimo after his elec
tion recognized with tho balance of North
ern men by his Democratic friends, as a
Radical carpet-bagger, at that.
This statement is made by the Age,
from a personal interview with Mr.
Walker, who either doclined giving his
real status, or preferred allowing the Age
show its ignorance of his true history.
We are inclined to the opinion that the
Governor is ignorant of a great many
facts, which it would be well enough for
persons occupying his position to know.
Prominent among them is, the real condi
tion of tho coming crops.
He informs tho Age, that "unless some
unexpected reverse occurs, tho crops of
all kinds, for the coming harvest, will be
much heavier than those of any year since
the war." Accounts from almost every
section of the State agree, that the present
prospects are very discouraging, and that,
"uuless some reverse occurs the crops gen
erally will be much poorer than they were
last year." His ignorance of the roal facts
may be owing to bis want of knowledgo of
the past grain history of his adopted State
His recent visit to his ho.ne, in New York
should have taught him bettor than i
recklessly assert that Virginia is in a pro
Certainly he does not imagine himse
the whole State; for we fail to hoar any
body else complaining of so much pros
perity. If the Governor will undertak
and succeed in proving it to tho people
than whom none can be more interested,
he will have done at least one good ac
since his occupancy of tho mansion. W
acknowledge that "Virginia is in the hand
of Virginians" to a certain extent, and when
wo have done this much, wa will also ac
knowledge that the rule of carpet-bagger
and scalawags was of short duration, (o
the latter we are one,) —the more the pity
for our State, so full of material to maki
her great, aud yet controlled by minds in
capable of comprehending her interests.
Prosperous, indeed 1 where is it ? In
tho rapid progress of education ? In tho
increase of material wealth ? In the
rapid building of railroads ? Io tho im
provement of our lands ? In the building
of factories ? In the welcome extendec
foreign immigration ? In liberal politica
sentiments ? Iv inviting Northern capital
or, is it legislating against the adopted con
stitution of tho State, fighting our educa
tional system, graspiug for the wealth of
others, warring against railroad enterprises,
holding on to more laud than we cau work,
making issues between commerce aod
manufacturing, discouraging immigration,
abusing political opinions, and ostracizing
Phern men, unless they come surrender
heir political faith ? Which of these
ions have mado us so great and pros
perous ? Let our Virginia Governor an
The Enquirer's Progress.—A single
ray of sunshine bids us hope for fair
weather—however wo may bo disappoint
ed in realizing it.
Tho Enquirer has progressed so far as to
treat us, this morning, to an able article
favoring the adoption of the narrow in
place of tho broad gauge railroad.
Its Democracy has deserted it for once,
and although the subject is so little identi
fied with political questions, the well
known determination of its party to al
ways oppose progressive ideas, gives t ■ a
hope that this able journal will some day,
however distant, desert the fast sinking
ship, and let her go to the bottom of tbe
Narrow gauge roads are of recent
! thought, and incline us to the opinion that
io a few years the laws of equilibrium
will be so controlled by man, as to enable
him to build railroads and run them suc
cessfully upon one rail only i we are
not entirely unprepared to see them flying
through the air, without rail or wheel
If you don't want to keep up with the
improvements, daily astonishing the world,
ust stand off, as Jackson's soldier prayed
ho Almighty would do, and let us win the
Tbe next thing we hear of, will bo that
the Enquirer is discarded as the organ of
Democracy, because it said there was lo
» a change in our railroads. Well 1 let
them read you out if they choose, and we
will welcome you on our side, now that
we have satisfied ourselves that there is
some good in you.

IT IS DETERMINED ON INJUBTIOB AND MIS
Richmond, May 15, 1871.
To the Editor of the State Journal.
The present managers of the Enquirer
seem determined to do injustice to the Me
chanics' Trades Union whenever they
mention the subject of its recent action.
If they expect to gain friends by such
action they are very much mistaken. In
its issue this morning, it says:
There have been no nominations made, a*
yet, by any party. The Trades Union and
tbe German* have simply put forward certain
names for the consideration of tbe Conserva
tives, tome of which will, of course, be ac
cepted by the convention when it meets, or by
tho primary meetings.
I have nothing to say in regard to the
action ofthe Germans ; but that portion of
the above in roference to the Mechanics'
Union is not true. That body did not ro-
I commend, but nominated the men of their
choice to be voted for at the coming elec
tion. A report was presented to the Union
by a committee that the names be simply
recommended to the different ward roeet-
I ings ofthe two parties as their choice ; but
that portion was stricken out and failed to
'pass by a very large majority— so the ac
tion of tho Union remaius as originally in-
I tended, to nominate aud support, and not
to recommend. We aro pledged to sup-
I port our candidates no matter what par
ty ticket they may be placed on, or no
matter what party they may belong to.
Tha action of the Union was regardless of

Death of Colonel. J. Lucius Davis —This
gallant man died at his residence in- Bucking
ham county, on the 11,h inst. Hia sicklies*
was shoi t and severe, ca rjiog him off unex
1.••.-'.. ,ilv to bis friends. He was a brave an.
gallant officer 111 ihe Confederate army, ant
like many of the same character, fought his
best for the cause he espoused; but when the
war closed took a sensible aud patriotic view
of the situatiou and honestly accepted all the
reconstruction measures adopted by the gov
eminent. He held the position of superinten
dent of t üblic schools in his county, and we
are told winked faithfully and zealously fur
the establishment and successful conduct nf the
colored schools, thus exhibiting a liberal
spirit, to wtich he was never a stranger.
We have n c jnily been informed nf a circum
stance prnybg niu-i to be more than an ordi
nary man. lie, wilh a mere handful of met ,
made a vigorous attack upon the forces of one
of the Federal generals, who was making a
raid near Richmond, and was captured while
so engaged. Upon inquiring ot Col. Davis, if
he knew tho number of the force* he bad
assailed, and receiving an affirmative reply,
he was asked why he bad attempted such an
impossibility; his reply was, "1 was ordered
to do it."
In the lifetime of that gallant hero, O. Jen
nings Wise, he regarded Clonel Davis with
special admiration and always called upon him
for his friendly advico and "assistance, which
was never denied.
Hi* remains reached the city yesterday by
the Richmond and Danville railroad, and not
Saturday as stated by the Dispatch, and were
followed by a number of friends to their last
resting place. Prominent among them, was
111 Henry A. Wise, of whom Colonel
always expressed tbe highest admira
