urge upon you Hie importance of de?
veloping the material resources of
your State as an essential element of
strength aud happiness. "The f/hes
have fallon to you in a pleasant
placo, and you have a goodlyvheri
tago." On no spot of eqnal siee on
this earth can bo found greater na?
tural advantages than are presented
by Virginia. With a olimato of un?
surpassed salubrity-with ?soil teem?
ing with fertility-with an inexhaust?
ible supply of mineral wealth-with
medicinal springs whose sparkling
waters almost rival those of that fa?
bled fountain whose taste conferred
immortal youth-with great 'rivera
upon whose bosom the navies of the
world might float, and whose'waters
could drive all the machinery on the',
globe-with all the choicest blessings
that Heaven bestows ion its most fa?
vored climes, it needs but your
earnest efforts to make this the rich?
est and most prosperous land the sun
ever shone upon. It is trae, that the
resources of your State aro limited at
present, and that its whole system of
labor has been overturned; but, un?
der the smiles of a beneficent Provi?
dence, you. oan, yet, by energy, per*
severance and sturdy toil, wake from
your smouldering ruins,( your de?
serted fields, your prostrate com?
merce., all these potent; elements
which make, a '.people prosperous,
powerful and free. Shrink not from
honest toil, from jany .mistaken
notion that Labor is degrading; seek
employment in the ^useful depart?
ments of commerce, I of mechanics,
of agriculture. Garry to .these avo?
cations not only strong arms and
willing hearts, but skilled labor,
trained intellect, incorruptible hon?
esty, indomitable purpose, and you
will dignify your calling, however
humble, while you elevate the honest
labor by which you Uve. Let me not
be understood as disparaging the
learned professions, for such is not
my intention, but I wish to teach Our
young men that these do not open
the only roads to usefulness, to suc?
cess, or oven to fame. I wish to im?
press on them that labor is not only
essential, but honorable. Kay more,
it is, in the present condition of the
country, a necessity; and to render
it profitable, you must bring to it all
the appliances of skill, of education,
of soienoe. Bring these powerful
agents to bear, and commerce will
lay her rich stores at your feet-the
hon horse will traverse every smiling
valley, and penetrate every rugged
mountain-the earth will yield up
her hidden and countless treasures
your streams will drive the spindle
and the loom, and agriculture will
make your whole land "to bios JO m
liku the rose." Above all, you will
have, throughout tho broad limits of
this fair laud of yours, a race of
sturdy, self-reliant, independent
men-men like those who made Vir?
ginia-men like those who, as the
Greek poet tells us, in his glowing
verso, so nobly paraphrased in our
language, make a State:
"What constitutes a State?
Not high-raised battlement or labored
Thick wall, or moated gate;
Not cities fair, with spires and turieU
No; men-high-minded men
Hon who their duties know
Know, too, their rights, and, knowiug,
Prevent the long-aimed blow,
And crush the tyrant while they rend
Such were your ancestors. Such
must you be, unless you aro degene?
rate sons of lieroio sires. With such
incentives to noble action as are given
by the grand record of your State in
the post, and her sore need at pre?
sent, can you prove recreant to the
patriotic blood that warms your
hearts, uutvortby of your glorious
birth-right, untrue to yourselves,
falso to your State ?
I read your answer in your glowing
cheeks, and in your kindling eyes,
and know only that you are tho sons
of tho "Mother of States and states?
men." I cannot doubt that the
honor of your State will be safe in
your hands. The object of tho coun?
sel I havo offered to yon, my young
friends, has been but poorly accom?
plished, if I have failed to impress
upon you thc great truths which
inculcate that the only safo and sure
guido through lifo is to bo found in a
conscientious and enlightened sense
of duty. Tho motto of the great
Frederick was, that "Life itself is a
duty." Take this as your own, but
remember to adhere more closely to
this almost divine precept than did
tho man who seized Silesia and par?
titioned Poland. Tho solemn and
sad truth it embodies will sick deeper
each succeeding year into your
hearts, and, at tho close of your pil?
grimage here, you will find all earthly
consolations but vanity, and you wi?
turn to the consciousness of duties
discharged as the only hope of hap?
piness hereafter. Nor will the con?
solations which spring from this
source be wanting to you during
your lives; on the contrary, they will
sustain you in every trial, comfort
you under every affliction. Even
heathen philosophers inculcated
virtue as the only sourco of happi?
ness, and heathen poets haye strung
their lyres to sing in their loftiest
strains its praises. Fresh as you aro
from tho classics, the immortal lines
in which Rome's great poet describes
the just and conscientious man, must
occur to you at once.
If those who had not tho Chris?
tian's faith to direct, nor the Chris?
tian's hopo to sustain thom, could so
justly appreciate- tho charms of vir?
tue and the obligations of duty, how
imperative is it on us, whose hearts
have beon, illumined by tho Divine
light of Revelation, lo govern our
lives by the great truths it teaches.
It may be that* in your passage
through life, when you see the good
man fail while the wicked prospers;
when you see troth, justice, piety,
trampled under foot by falsehood, in?
justice, infidelity; when you see a
brave and gallant people, who gave
their all for liberty, crushed to earth
by despotism, pure faith in the jus?
tice of God may be staggered, and
you may be tempted to call iu ques?
tion these great truths. Bat it will
be not only a narrow view, of the
great system .of which the Creator is
th? centre as Well as tho author, but
a fatal delusion, if yon yield to these
doubts. If this earth i was man's
only abiding place, if after his allot?
ted space boro he was to pass away
forever* sinking beneath .thc. bound?
less ocean Of time, as a pebble siukB
beneath the Waters of the sea? leaving
only a ripple on their surface, then
indeed might we expect to see the
hand of God interposed to reward
virtue and to punish vico in this
world. BUt when you reflect that
this is morely a place of probation to
flt you for another and a higher life;
when you consider how short is the
life of man, or of mations, in the
eyes of Him in whose "sight a thou?
sand yearn are but as yesterday;"
whan you contemplate the grand
scheme of the universe unfolded in
all its vast proportions, you can
readily comprehend what would
otherwise seem dark and incompre?
hensible. You can then understand
how vioe so often goes apparently
unpunished in this world, while vir?
tue bows beneath her heavy load of
sorrow; you can understand how the
good man is called to bear his cross
on earth, whilst the wicked hos his
heart's desire; you can understand
how the noblest cause that ever
roused a people in its defence may
seem to perish, for you know that
not until the last great day will the
final reckoning come, when all will
be weighed in the great scales held
by the impartial hand of n just and
Almighty God. If your faith is
steadfast, reflections such as these
will reconcile you to many things
whioh would otherwise appear incon?
sistent with the perfect justice and
tho infinite meroy of the Almighty,
and. they will teach you that yon
should not rashly presume to ques?
tion His wisdom, nor call upon Him
to "vindicate the ways of God to
man." It is not for me, however, to
venture to tell you of your duty to
Heaven. I have spoken of your ob?
ligations os citizens, but I leave it to
your reverend and holy teachers to
point out to you man's primal duty
that to his God. From their hps and
their Uves yon must learn the divine
truths of Christianity which teach
you your duty to your Maker. Mine
is but the humbler task to urge upon
you the faithful performance of those
daily duties to man and to your State
which will meet you on all sides io
your journey through life, and tc
cnutiou you not to be led astray bj
tho glare of success, nor to allow
yourselves for ono moment to sup?
pose that it is of itself un evidence
of right. All history, sacred as well
as profane, would contravene any
such doctrine as that success is thc
criterion of right. You j'ourselvet
have seen tho wicked prosper and the
evil cause triumph, when, in the in?
spired language of the Psalmist
"tho vilest men aro exalted." Na
ture herself works by violent r?volu
tions, and it is from chaos thut she
evokes order. Storms purify th?
moral as well as the material world
and from the wild confusion of thc
political elements now prevailing wi
may hopo to seo eliminated tbos<
better principles which will give nev
lifo to tho country. Be not dis
mayed, then, because in thc groa
upheaval society hos undergone yoi
see the dross now uppermost, nor bi
misled by those false lights whicl
oro hung out by worldly prosperity
or unworthy success. Your biston
cal researches will have rnado yoi
familiar with the wondrous story o
that spoiled child of fortune, Sylla
who gained, from his uninterruptci
career of success, tho title of Felix
and you will remember tho remark

Turn from that disgusting pictnre c
the man who was called the "Forti
nate," and look on another of a fe
different composition. In a dungeon !
of the Hostile, reposes, on his pallet j
of straw, an old and feeble man, I
whose solo orime, in the eyes ox his
persecutors, was, that, ''ofter the
manner they called heresy, so wor?
shipped he the gods of his fathers."
It is Bernard de Palisy, who, in spite
of all the 'power wielded by the
bigotted and bloody Catherine, and
her weak son, refused to abjure his
faith. The King of France is stand?
ing before him, trying to shake that
faith by persuasion and m?nade, j Ho
is telling him that he has been his
friend, but, unless he abjures his
religion, he will now be constrained
to deliver him up to his enemies, to
be burned on the morrow. Bowing
before his sovereign, touched by the
kindness he had shown, but grieved
at the weakness he displayed, the
old. man, inflexible in his duty, re?
plied in these memorable words:
"Sire, your Majesty has often said
that you pity me. For my part, I
pity you for pronouncing the words
'I am constrained.' This is not speak?
ing like a King. But, let me inform
you, in royal language, that neither
the Guisarts, your whole people, nor
you, yourself, shall constrain a poor
potter. I can die." "I can diel"
royal language, indeed, for it is the
language of truth, of faith, of duty.
Which of these men-Sylla, the for?
tunate, or Palissy, the martyr, is the
greater in the sight of wisdom ?
Which the most successful, if this
question is to be answered, not by
time, but by eternity ?
It is my earnest counsel to you, to
make a firm and abiding sense of
duty the great activo principle of
your lives. I do not tell you to do
this, because it is expedient that you
should do so; I do not promise that,
by So doing, you will gain renown,
heap up riohes, or escapo sorrows,
because no such falso and illusory
hopes can be held out to you. On
the contrary, you may fail, as many
of the best men have done, in accom?
plishing the objects dearest to you
on earth. You must look for no
earthly reward, if you adopt this
principle, and you may even expect
to suffer on its account; but, in tho
face of this expectation, I still con?
jure you to cling to it, for it is the
right. Perhaps, as you walk, toiling
and painfully, along tho straight and
narrow way of duty, where difficul?
ties meet you at every step, where
dangers appal and temptations allure
you, your strength may fail, and you
will long to follow the alluring but
orooked paths of sin; if so, think of
Him, who, orowned with thorns,
trod, with naked and bleeding feet,
the road that led to Calvary, and,
from his example, learn to cleave to
the right, even if thus doing so leads
you, too, to the cross. Perhaps, when
you see vice flaunting by, in her
triumphant chariot, crowned with tho
laurel of victory, drunk with power,
rich with spoil, seductive in her
meretricious beauty, pressing on
swiftly in that broad road, which
seems to load to fortune, pleasure,
glory; whilo virtue, sad and afflicted,
with weary steps and slow, pursuing
her lonely way on that thorny and
rugged path, which ends only at tho
grave, your hearts will sink, and you
may be tempted to forsake the true
faith, to worship at the shrine of the
false. Should such temptations
arise, should you bo disposed, for
tho sake of expediency, to sacrifice
duty, go to yonder quiet cemetery,
and,. as you look upon the grave of
Jackson, think of that great soldier,
pure patriot and humble Christian,
"Who taught us how to live-and oh! too
For such a price-who taught us how to
Should any further incentive to
confirm your wavering faith bo then
needed, turn from the grave of tho
dead hero and Christian to contem?
plate the living one, and learn to live

ANOTHER IMPEACHMENT SCHEME.
Incredible as it may seem another
movement for impeachment is on
foot, and Thaddeus Stevens will
introduce new articles, and move
their referenco to a select committee,
with instructions to report at some
future day. When before that Com?
mittee, they will remain thcro until
the Representatives from the South?
ern States aro in, when Mr. Stevens
believes they will bo carried through
the House and conviction in tho
Senate be assured. Tho intontion of
the mover is not generally known in
tho House, and it will, doubtless,
cause considerable commotion. These
articles chargo the President with
abuso of tho pardoning power, in
issuing pardons to rebels and do
sortera from tho Union army for tho
especial purposo of securing their
support of his schomes; also, abuse
of the patronage of tho Government
by inducing obstruction in tho exe?
cution of the reconstruction laws of
Congress; also, violation of thc Con?
stitution, in establishing provisional
governments in the South without
the consent or advice of Congress;
and, lastly, in using corruptly tho
patronage of the Government to
influence tho elections that have been
held within the last three years.
Tho Central Underground Railroad
Corporation, which is to connect tho
city of New York with tho country,
has elected a board of directors, and
work is to bo commenced forthwith.

A Prudent anti Importamt Sugges?
Conservativo ; journals North sug?
gest to tho South, that it is a mistake
to suppose that the Northern Demo?
cracy expect to win an easy victory
in the coming 'Presidential "election.
It is a grave error to under-rate your
enemy's power and resources. These
sensible journals tell us that the radi?
cals are powerful, and strongly en
tronoheil, and further, that the main
fight is to be made North. If this
be tho case-and it is the case most
emphatically-w7/a7 is incumbent upon
tis of the Soidh? Why, most plainly,
to be moderate in our demands, to
make concessions that are reasonable,
and to aid our Northern allies in
every possible way.
Practically, Democracy will pre?
vail North by getting in moderate
Republicans, and South by control?
ing the negro vote. Let us, if pos?
sible, nnito upon a platform and a
mau that will accomplish, as far as
possible, both objects. At the same
time, we should firmly maintain tho
reasonable and just claims of the

The IForMasks: "Will the South
ern whites attempt to carry their
own States ?" Wo "answer for this
State, regarded the most hopelessly
radical of all, that we certainly shall
make the effort; and, further, we
feel that, if a brave, and united, and
vigorous effort be made, that even
South Carolina may be redeemed
from radical control. If sixteen of
thirty-one Districts have been carried
by the Democracy, in the recent elec?
tion, there is certainly a good chance
of Democratic success in tho Presi?
dential canvass. But, we will say to
the World, that the interest and
enthusiasm with which the whites of
the South will go into the Presiden?
tial canvass, will depend upon the
principles and animus of thc Demo?
cratic Convention of July next.
Give us a fair showing. Offer us a
hopefu ! future. Recognize the Cau?
casian sympathies of the country.
Redeem the pledges you have made.
Fulfill the reasonable expectations of
tho Southern people, and they will
go to work, con espirito. Aud they
will make a strong effort to "seize

in any of the debates of tho Conven?

in its sessions upon the question of

was the result of no indisposition to j
express myself freely had I felt that j
the occasion required mo to do so;
but in the absence of any defined
issue in the matter of suffrage, I pre?

I am free to add, that, when the
matter of suffrage comes squarely
before our people, as a question of
State policy, your correspondent will
find me in the rnnks of a progressive

misingly, in principle, is opposed to
paying a premium for iguorance,
will be neither so illiberal nor short?

These, and not those reported, in
