"111 VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA.
We have improved every proper occa
sion since 1803 to express our conviction
that a great error was committed in the par
tition of the old State of Virginia. We do
so not merely because great practical ,
injury and wrong resulted in this special
case, but because we think the precedent
dangerous and revolutionary. It is too
much like gerrymandering for party
strength, to suit us. We think this is just
the time to agitate for reconstruction, and
we have faith in the triumph of the right.
We quote below an article from the West
Virginia Journal, which, while opposing
reunion, admits the existence of a consid
erable party in favor of it. Old Virginia
is bound to throw overboard its fossilized
ideas, and imbibe the progressive spirit of
the powerful communities with which it is
soon to become closely connected by great
lines of railway. It is rousing from its
lethargy and putting itself on the track be
side its more fortunate sisters. It only
needs now, the restoration of its members,
cut oil' in the panic and bitterness of war,
and the fresh young blood of the mountain
men, to be whole and strong once more.
The Journal, alluding to the Richmond Dis
patch, says: ■
Our eye has fallen recently upon two para
graphs iv a Richmond paper, one from a letter of
Dr. Jeter, and the other a comment by the editor,
which we quote below, that our readers may ace
what disposition yet lingers in tho hearts of the
people of the old State towards the new govern
ment. ,
Many of the residents of the Old State, viewing
the comparative prosperity of Weat Virginia with
that of the Eastern slope, naturally desire a re
union. No inconsiderable portion of the wealthy
citizens of the New State, looking over the met
low-tinted past, have an Inward longing for tlieir
common destiny. Hut the day of their uniting
under one policy is over. Commerce and public im
provements, whins. Ihe Eastern government h*ive
done nothing to stimulate and everything to re
tard, may and certainly will hereafter link to
gether the prosperity of tho towns and citizens,
but the pathway of each lays in a. different lati
tude. Virginia must come from beneath the
shadow of the great delusion which forces her
h*/-k io old customs, old ideas anil the political
creeds of ancient days, before our people will
treat upon lue subject, and then a common Intel
ligence will preclude a common government for
the deceived people.
Kiclnnond may dream, in her listless indiffer
ence to progress and tho advancing spirit of tho
nge, that her government will yet 6tretch Ita
gloomy wings over the mountain "gorges and the
river .plains of prosperous "West Virginia, but
in the evolution ot lacts and destiny it will never
be realized. These expressions of its press indi
cate, however, tl ooiicert of action, between Vir
ginia citizens and a class of (lissallected partisans
on this side of the mountains to eventually raise
ihe question of reunion at :in auspicious moment.
It is the lingering rays of the Democratic opiio
silion to tlie restored government and the new
State born of necessity, which still obtuins sway
in many minds, and which displayed itself in
eve-y Democratic heart and every Democratic
lip during the dark hours Of the country's peril.
The New York World, in looking over
the field for Presidential claimants in the
Democratic and disaffected Republican
ranks, indicates that it is willing that all the
latter class should come on board the Dem
ocratic ship, and bring their active capital
with them ; but it mast depend upon the
extent of this capital whether they have
any potential hand in the management of
the ship. They are invited to come in as
partners, and present their schedules of ac
tive capital, before they claim any prospec
tive dividends in the concern. The World
naively adds, hy way of enticing these dis
affected persons on board the Democratic
ship, that "they know who we are, but we
do not know who they are"—an admission
which it seems quite unnecessary to make,
in view of the general notoriety of the
Democratic party in the Empire State. The
people know pretty well who the Tammany
leaders are, and what they are, and how
desirable it may be for "disgruntled" Re
publicans, of the (ireeley-Schurz stamp, to
pool in their active political capital into .
such a rotten concern. I
The World in taking the leadership of 1
the Democratic party for 1872, gives pro- i
mise of as brilliant success as attended its i
editorial career in ISOB. It then displayed i
such astonishing military tactics that the i
whole political world was thrown into
amazement at the master stroke of policy <
it evinced. The same world had then heard i
of the embarrassments attending the 1
"swapping of horses while crossing a t
stream," but the idea of swapping candi- t
dates in a Presidential fight, and on the eve '
•f the deciding battle, had never before <
entered the head of the most inventive Van- '
kce. The genuine letters patent for such •
a brilliant manoeuvre belonged, by univer- '
sal consent, to tlie military genius of the I
World. If we mistake not, that paper 1
will have to take a back seat in the next I
Democratic National Convention, wherever
and whenever it may be held. Its over- '
ture, therefore, to certain Republicans, 1
asking them to take stock in that conven- *
tion, will hardly be accepted as the author- '
ized expression of the party. Is the World 1;
fishing for <<ratz Brown, or is its "activo c
capital" bait thrown out for some railroad r
king, or other millionaire having the where
with to invest in a Democratic nomination
for IST-;'.'
)
The arrest of Richard B. Connolly, a
which was announced in yesterday's papers, i
has taken the public somewhat by surprise, J
for the reason that bis appointment of Mr. '
Green to the deputy coinptiollership of tho h
city was understood to have been made at :■'
t'io instance of tho commmittee of seventy, c
under a pledge, express or implied, that for a
t'lis measure of public safety he would be d
shielded from prosecution by the commit- p
tee. But Mr. Connolly no sooner resigns a
his position as comptroller than a warrant
is issued for his aiTest as one of the rascally
plunderers of the city treasury.
This will inspire confidence in the integ
rity of the committee, for the public mind
S 3 ... .mT I .... ... . I
had settled down into the conviction that |
this officer, who was placed as chief senti- i
' the greatest responsibility rested for the '
! protection of the public funds, was
j the chief criminal of all in the robberies
that were known to have transpired.
That ho should have been the first
to turn against his associates in guilt, was
evidence of his thorough knowledge of the
rascalities they had perpetrated, and that
he must have winked at them at the time
of their commission, if he was not, in fact,
a sharer and participator in the plunder.
We are glad to find that Connolly's
exemption from prosecution with the other
Tammany Hall thieves, was at no time as
sured by the committee, and that Demo
crats-as well as Republicans arc engaged in
pushing these men to the wall—in bringing
them, one and all, to the punishment they
deserve. It speaks well for the honor and
integrity of both political parties, or at
least of the men who promptly came for
ward in this emergency to take the leader
ship of these two parties.
The committee have now laid tlieir hands
on the guiltiest rogue of the lot—the man
whose position demanded of him an Argus
eyed scrutiny and examination of every
claim presented for adjustment and approv
al at his office. That be should have pass
ed favorably upon the bogus claims of
Garvey, Ingersoll and others, without shar
ing iv the general plunder, is too preposter
ous an assumption to be entertained for a
moment.
Connolly has had his brief day of ex
emption from threatened arrest and punish
ment, but as a participator in the stupen
dous frauds of the riug he must now take
bis turn in looking through the iron grates
of the Tombs.
NEW PVBLIC ATIONS.
The Earth : A Diacriptlve History of th* Phe
nomena of the Life of the Globe. By Eliseb
Rbclcs. H.srsß ii llhothkks, Publishers, New
York, 1871.
This remarkable volume is the result of !
more than fifteen years careful study, I
travel and research, by one of the ablest
living French authors. It has already
passed through two French editions, and
no work, either in French or English, has
ever approached a greater task or achieved
greater success in its undertaking. The
illustrations arc very numerous and sur
pass in excellence those of any similiar
work upon Physical Geography. The
careful and laborious research displayed
throught the work, and the happy arrange
ment of its several topics, treated in their |
philosophical order, must insure for M.
Reclus an honorable place in popular scien
tific literature. The work is translated by
the late B. B. Woodward, M. A., the
Queen's librarian at Windsor Castle, and !
edited by Henry Woodward, of the British
Museum. It is illustrated by two hundred
and thirty maps inserted in the text, and
twenty-three page maps printed in colors.
Few works of a popular character have ever
made their appearance which promise riper
results in scientific attainment among the
people than this. For sale by West s\
Johnston.
We are in receipt of the November
number of the American Exchange and
Reriew, a miscellany of useful knowledge
and general literature. This work, which
is rapidly gaining in popular favor, is de
voted to finance, mining and metallurgy,
insurance, railways and transportation,
manufactures, patents, trade, commerce,
art, joint-stock corporation interests, phys
ics, social and economic science; and the
articles upon these several topics are pre
pared with much care and thoroughness of
investigation. We commend it to all de
siring the information it is designed to im.
part. It is published by the Philadelphia
Review Publishing and Printing company,
corner Walnut and Fourth streets.
Questions of the Day, by Dr. Wm.
Elder, comes to us from tho publisher,
Henry C. Carey, of Philadelphia. This
book treats of the great social and eco
nomical questions which interest the coun
try, with that ability for which its author
is distinguished. It is truly a remarkable
book, and contains the ripe thought of one
of the clearest, profoundest, and most cul
tivated minds devoted to political studies in
America.
The pressing and imperative questions
of labor and capital, of the forms of ag- j
gressivo and defensive war which now exist
between them, entailing loss and suffering
upon both, of the remedies for a bold, so
cial, industrial and political system, are
clearly stated, and facts of great interest ■
cited to aid in their solution.
The book is charmingly free from the j
cant dogmatism and heartless cynicism of
most books on political economy. Dr. i
Elder believes in the realization of a chris- '.
tian commonwealth, in which the law of love
shall be substituted for strife and competi
tion. Cnder its benign auspices the pro
ductive powers of the race will be incalcu
lably enlarged. The first step is protection •
to industry, by a wise financial policy.
Cooperation or the marriago of capital and
labor comes next, organizing fraternal re- <
lations, and securing a just distribution of j
products.
The closing chapters, entitled Guaranlee
ism, discuss these points with great
power. The author well says that every
earnest man's best efforts are due to this
work of purifying, elevating, and organ- ,
izing aright the political and industrial life
of the nation. We shall have occasion to
refer to this grand book again.
For sale by Henry C. Carey; price, .3.
It is very easy to pay a large debt when ;
you have the means to pay it, but impos- '
sible to pay either a large or small one !
when you have not the means. To pay a '
just debt, it is the duty of the State, no
less than of the individual, to turn over the ' .
last dollar of its property, if need be, for j
its liquidation. But where a debt is con- '
c jived in sin and brought forth in iniquity,
as is the caso with much of the State in- \
debtness of tho South, the obligation to j ,
pay the last dollar is. manifestly not quite ! '
so binding.
It is said that General GorlofT, who suc
ceeds Calaca/.y as cnswne d'afairs of the I
Russian legation at Washington, is a mili
tary officer and writer of high note in his j
own country. Tlie general has been for
I some time in the United States, supervis
l ing, as military attache to the Russian min
| istry, the execution of a large contract for ■
fire-arms made by his government with the
, Colt Fire-orms Manufacturing company, of
j Hartford, Conn. General Gorlolf has*,iade
| his chief residence in Hartford for the last
1 three or four years, and has strongly at
tached himself to the people of that city
and State, by his general intelligence, agree
able manners, and line gentlemanly quali
ties. The Russian government will be ad
mirably represented by the general, and it
is certain that our own will gain not a little
by the exchange of diplomats.
A Movement is said to be on foot in
Now York, to throw Tweed, Connolly,
Hall, and others out of Tammany, and or
ganize the "old wigwam" under an entire
ly new set of chiefs. This movement is
thought to bo headed by such men as Til
den, Ottendorfer, Green, AVickham, and
others, standing equally high in the Demo
cratic ranks. Their programme of opera
ions has not yet transpired, but will be
'officially announced,"so says the World, in
the course of a week. That the old wigwam
sadly needs renovating will be conceded by
all who know anything of its history in the
last few 3 T ears. The odium which has been
brought upon the memory of the old Sa
chem of the Delawares, after whom the
wigwam was called, is enough to cause the
bones of that sturdy old chief to rattle
anew in his grave. Tammany has been a
power. So Troy was once a city.
Mr. Wilkes, the editor of the great
American sporting paper, announces that
he will oppose President Grant as a candi
date for Republican nomination, and if
nominated, as a candidate for election. Mr.
AVilkes has clearly a right to take this po
sition for himself and for that class of his
readers who may sympathize with him in
his attitude towards the President. But,
I publishing the paper bo does, we insist that
jhe has no right to become a "fossil" in the
! party which demands that he should be up
Ito the spirit of the times.
Wendell Phillips proposes to give
the next ten years of his life to the redemp
tion of every man who works with his
hands. This programme of redemption is
somewhat limited, but it will do to start
with. By and by he will come to sympa
thize with those who tug and sweat with
their brains, to get less remuneration for
their toil than any other class of workers
extant—-at least in Massachusetts.

It is understood that the President has
finished the draft of his annual message. It
will not be printed in advance of its delivery
to Congress, for the reason that herefore
such printing has resulted in a premature
disclosure of the contents of several mes"
sages to Congress. The only copies made
of it in advance therefore, will be in manu
script. The document is said not to be
lengthy.
Professor Whitfield, of the univer
sity of Alabama, is "enjoying" the gyra

that State at a velocity of one hundred and

one if the Professor can derive satisfaction
from being in it.
