given certillcates of elcct.on to certain mea,
have nothing more to do with the matter.

that (Iovernor Garc klux would claim tlie

Theic are some Btfaoge facts presented in
the present condition of Virginia, which it
will not do our noithern frit nils any hann

inoic w illili*; than sonic of tin ni hate seemed
to Le to encouraj-c the migration of negroes
from this State to the States of thc North
and the Northwest. The DitpatOk rei-, ntly
contained the follow ing little paragraph:
?* QesjN ral Bebofeld made a map ol Vir?
ginia which he colored black or )\ lille, or
abodes between, a-thc eounttos eontatned
more or fewer ne*: roes. The ju ices of I in?

tlie map. In white counties the hind .-.old
IiItjIh st, and BO on down, down, down, till
the black counties were reached."
The Columbus (Ohio) ,N7.i(V Journal ic
produced this paragraph a few days ago,
mid rotnni' ited upon it as follows .
?* If that be true, land must lu- exceed- '
iiij-ly cheap in tin vicuiitv of Itichmoml."
The fatals. Journal guesses aright, though
lt did not mean to do so. Thc land*, in Hen?

arc valued at au average of Ieee I hun $.'14 an
acre, though the BObttl hs of Uichmond, iu
clud.ng many lbiekly-populated neighbor
lioods, are within that county. Yet the ne?
gro p ipulatioii is by no means in Un- ma?
jority here. Wc claim 40,OiK) whites to 34,
<&.?> blacks in llichm-ind. The lands are.
li.wever, very cheap hereabouts, and tlie
Journal ought to advert im- (lum for us and
