. One of the mest decided indications
ol the present era ia the .disposition on'
the part of many political reformers to
open wide the gates of suffrage, r It has
come to this, that the extension of the
right of suffrage, both in Europe and
America; te regarded as tb6 panacea for
all the diseases to^whioh'the Tb?dj politic
isHobjcot: Our readers havo, no doubt,'
obttfved, ,(tha apead of this idea in Eng
la'nu, France and fefcrw'aby, to say no?
thing of 'the marked manifestations of
it in our owu country. Under the opera?
tion ofc'the proposed fifteenth amend?
ment-should it become tho law of the
land-the right of suffrage would extend
to. ' Mongolian, negro and Caucasian,
without regard to qualifications. Nor
does the matter ead here, but the suf?
frage is demanded for women, also, as a
remedy for the wrongs and evils to which
they ore subjected. In fine, the impres?
sion exists with not a few that suffrage is
the medicine with which political evils in
general are to be oared. Under its
-regis, alt human rights are to bc ren?
dered- secure. Now, we admit that the
progressive spirit in this direction is, to
a certain extent, to be encouraged. But
the distinction between oivil rights and
political rights should not bo over?
looked; So far as suffrage- is concerned,
it is in the nature of a trust, and pru?
dence wonld seem to dictate that this
trust should be conferred by a State
upon its citizens according to the prin?
ciple of the greatest good to the greatest
number. It occurs to us that no better
wey to bring republican institutions into
disrepute oould be devised, than thc
loose and indiscriminate conferring of
suffrage. The New York Herald, re?
marking upon "the value of the elec?
toral suffrage in theory and in practice,"
shows that in practico, at least in this
oountry, this general suffrage business
needs prompt reform. The Herald says:
"Well, if it were any remedy, if it were
not one of the popular delusions of tho
day, all these schemes for making Ame?
rican citizens out of every man, woman
and child in the United States, whether
belonging to the Caucasian, the Mongo?
lian or the negro'race, might command
the sympathy and support of all fair
minded, thinking men. But when oui
system of primary ward meetings, Demo?
cratic clubs, loyal leagues, fictitious re?
gistration repeating, ballot box stuffing
and all the gross frauds whioh politician;,
of all parties indulge in with impunity if
taken into consideration, it appears o!
mighty little importance indeed who hoi
or who has not the right to vote.
"But it is not only by such means at
those we have indicated that the will o
the people in regard to its choice of can
dictates is neutralized, defeated, anc
made of no acoouut, After all these ob
stacles to a fair, or comparatively fair
manifestation of the wiU of a communih
are overcome it does not follow then, bj
any means, that the man who happen:
thus to be elected will ever be permittee
to hold the place to which he is chosen
If, for instance, that place bo a seat ii
Congress, and if it bu contested, no mat
ter almost under what frivolous pro
tenoes, by a persou whose politics an
those of the dominaut party in Congress
the chances are as ten to one that th<
claimant whose politics are preferred wil
get the seat, abd that the candidate whon
the constituents preferred will bo turnee
oUt of doors. The history of tho Housi
of Representatives for the last six year
is full of instances of this kind, whcr<
the expressed will of constituencies, no
only in Southern butin Northern State
also, hus beon ruthlessly set asido. Au<
now it baa como to bo au understood
thing that tho decision of contested clcc
tiou cases in the lower branch of Cou
grass depends not upou thc merits of th
question in the most remote degree, bu
on the political faith of the rospectiv
parties to it.
"With this double attack from higl
and from low places thus mudo upon th
purity of elections, of what possible valu
to any one is that inalienable right c
freemen whioh orators and poets hav
prated and sung so rapturously and fool
ishly about? Or how much more or les
guilty is tho .ballot-box stuffer or the ri
?oater of the sixth ward thau the men:
er of Congress who, for the sake c
party, stabs to death the very life priuc
pie of the government?
"If our Democratic institutions fa
into contempt through such means, or i
the right of election become, as it is fas
becoming, a mere shadow nod delusiot
the blame will fall no less heavily o
the members of the National L<
gislature than on the roughs an
rowdies and pot-house politicians wh
manage things pretty much as they ai
paid for doing. And there ia very litt]
use in malting efforts to reform sud purif

"When the certificates of olectioi

tive officer, is respectod und regarded r
final and conclusive by the body I
which a man is chosen by his constili

A Trip to tHe White Sulphur.
WHITE SULPHUR SPBIXGS, VA. ,
Desirous of agreeably sponding a short
vacation, wo decided on paying a visit to
tli i H justly celebrated wntoring-plaoe,
and at half-past 1 o'clock, on n terribly
hot day-when an individual was forced
to keep as quiet as he possibly could, to
prevent Jbeing floated off by the per?
spiration-wo took our departure via the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Hail
road. In tho cool of the afternoon, the
elevated town of Chester was reached;
supper was announced, and the passen?
gers, forgetful of the heat of the earlier
portion of the day, made a rush for
Nicholson's Hotel, where, ns everybody
knows, a most excellent meal is always
ready; and, what is equally important,
ample timo is allowed to discuss it. Our
Wolf-is\x conductor having leisurely
finished his repast, gave the signal "all
aboard," and the shrill whistle of tho
locomotive re-echoing tho order, we were
soon rattling along at a thirty-mile-an
bour rate. The run to Charlotte, and
the transfer at that point to tho North
Carolina Railroad, and at Greensboro
to tho Richmond and Danville, we pass
over with a word or two-merely stating
that good time is made, sleeping cars
are obtainable, and by ll o'clock the
next morning, tho "long blow" an?
nounces that we are rapidly approaching
famed "Riohmond on the James." And
here we rest until Tuesday, at 8 a. m.,
quartered at the "Spottswood," which,
under its present proprietors, Messrs.
James M. Sublett, (J. B. Luck and W.
B. Bishop, fully retains its old aud well
earned prestige. By-the-way, tho new
proprietors aro overhauling and improv?
ing their hotel materially-among other
things, adding a commodious reading
room. The gentlemen mentioned above
are "to the manor born"-having boon
connected with other hostelries for years.
Richmond presents a business-like as?
pect; new and elegant buildings aro con?
tinually being erected; and in n short
timo all marks of tho terrible fire which
so unfortunately occurred when the Con?
federates evaouated their capital city,
will be obliterated. Old faces are recog?
nized in the streets, and although many
new firm names nre displayed on the
signs, still hero and thore well-remem?
bered business houses loom up-oases in
the desert of present mercantile life-as,
under this regime, a traveler cannot on
ter his naino on a hotel register, unless
under tho supervision of nt least two
apparently highly-interested individuals,
who, with cards or circulars in their
bauds, givo a pressing invitation to "call
and see thom"-of course, expecting to
j relieve the invited of any snrplus gre?n
I backs he may be so fortunate as to have
in his possession. Tho world moves on,
and we must endeavor to keep up.
At G}? n. m., wo wero "called," and,
after a hearty breakfast, proceeded to the
dopot of tho Chesapeake and Ohio Kail
road, (formerly known ns tho Virgiuia
Central.) This road is now running
through to the White Sulphur, and is
fully equipped-road bed iii excellent
order, coaches handsomely fitted up, and
seats as comfortable as ono's own reclin?
ing chairs at home. Thc distance is 227
miles, and tho timo thirteen hours; and
when it is remembered that more than
100 miles is through tho mountains, over
heavy grades, where tho services of three
locomotives are required, the "timo"
may bo considered good. Atleen, Gor
donsville, and many other elations made
famous during tho late war, are on this
route. The pretty town of Charlottes?
ville is also to bo soon, and in the dis?
tance Monticello, tho homo of Jefferson,
is readily discerned. Tho pleasure of
the trip was marred by the evidences of
the prevailing drought which appeared
on all hands. Along the entire route
from Bichmond, and, in fact, ns we
learn, throughout tho wholo of Eastern
and Southern Virginia, no rain of any
consequence has fallen in ninety days.
Tho corn, of which a great depth has
been planted, will provo an almost total
loss. The tobacco plants aro but little
larger than when set out, and with the
best weather, but half a crop will be
made. Pasturage iii field and wood is
burnt np, and even tho forest trees begin
to suffer. Were it not for the immense
grain crop harvested in tho State, an?
other year of positive Buffering would
now dawn upon Virginia. The route
from Charlottesville to this point (tho
present terminus of the railroad) lies
through a mountainous country, abound?
ing in grand and picturesque Bcenory.
You whisk in and out among tho Blue
Ridges, which at times loom lazily in
the blue distance, and anon tower above
you in tho foreground. At length, you
begin to ascend, and by-nud-by there lies
away below you the rioh and famous val?
ley of Virgiuia, a nicturo of surpassing
beauty, that will last you a life time.
You aro carried up heavy grades; you
plunge through tunnels, you run under
tho brou 3 of crog8 that bcetlo awfully
over bead, and swing sboor out upon,
giddy precipices, tt?at attfkej??o4'lnW afc?

Adolphus Sparkler, a youth with croppy
hair and n nobby's style, roverently ob?
served to said youth: "How insignificant
man feels in the pr?sence of Nature's
majesty! Sue that high mountain." To
him Adolphus: "Yes; correct. . Pretty
good for high. Nice hills. Too menna
of them, though. ?Overdouo-don't you
think so?" Elderly party groaned, and
abandoned croppy to his fate. Another
individual, who was nsed to tho route,
remarked to a frightened mortal sittiug
near, "Glad we got over that safe-a
train runs off about once a week. A hor?
rible precipice yet to pass," etc. The
scenery on the ride from Covington to
thc White Sulphur is unsurpassed in
grandeur and magnificence by any in this
country, and is of itself worth n trip
from the sea-board.. The Chesapeake
and Ohio Railroad, in pushing the ex?
tension of their road to this pince, have
overcome great difficulties by dint of
skillful engineering, and deserve tho
thanks of the crowds of tourists who an?
nually flock to this and the adjacent re?
Tho number of visitors now here is
very large. The daily arrivals aro brisk,
filling up the blanks lieft by departures.
September and October ave said to be
thc pleasantest months to visit these
springs, ns the air of early autumn is
bracing and cool, inducing to vigorous
out-door exercise, for which these moun?
tains and valleys afford ample scope and
verge. Visitors who have resorted to
these springs for a score of years past
declaro that the present has undoubtedly
been tho most brilliant and successful
season ever known here. In the recep?
tion rooms, nloug thc halls, or nt the
brilliant nightly hops, ono sees little of
that boisterous manner, that vulgar dis?
play, which are inseparable from most
popular resorts. There is no incongrui?
ty, no juxtaposition of antagonism. But
balls and parties aro tho order of tho
night. Tho bops here are certainly bril?
liant affairs, calling into the "charmed
circle of Terpsichore" tho most bewitch?
ing manners, thc most elegant dressing,
the courtliest gallantry, the most grace?
ful dancing. Here young Adolphus
Sparkler also comes to tho fore, glorious
in gyrations, doing wonders. He fears
not to essay tho "Boston dip," the most
difficult of all saltatory movements
au indescribable rolling, dipping move?
ment, slow and slasby, by which the dip?
pers seem to sway pretty much like thc
top-gallant mast of an oyater ?smacb
wheu she wallows in tho wake of a steam?
er. There is a weight on thc brow ol
Adolphus when he emerges from thc
room. What is it, oh, youth of thc
darkling countenance? Ah, he speaks
"Very nice-but there's too monua pr?t
ty geils. Don't yon think it's overdone?'
Of a truth there are girls, a-many, anc
certainly they aro pretty, and many ol
them cun lay claim to beauty. Th<
honors duo tue "belle of tho season" ar?
the legitimate subject of dispute betwcci
three or four. It is a quadruple or quad'
rilateral contest, and bids fair to last al
summer. On Tuesday, the 3lst, tin
Messrs. Peyton gave a complimentary
ball to the "Press of tho United States,'
and well was it attended, too, not ouh
by members of the "press gang," butty
a brilliant galaxy of beautiful ladies fron
all sectious of tho Union, and-thotrutl

ugliest mortals of the male persuasion

It bau been the most successful with thc
Peytons since their assumption of the
great White Sulphur. The greatest num?
ber of guests present at any ono time was
2,100; tho number nowhere is between
700 nud 800. But a coterie of guests w'.o
seek these springs for real pleasure und
health-to drink the waters and eujoy
the bracing air of the mountains-are
arriving hero now, nud the second season
-the best of the year-will continue
through October. The hotel will bc kept
open hereafter during thc entire year.
A feature which gives a pleasing variety
to life here is tho duily incursion of moun?
taineers, who como down from all direc?
tions with "tree sugar," fruits, ond all
manner of provender, which they hawk
about the extensive grounds. These
"frosty sous of thunder," clad in home?
spun and bronzed by exposure, and some?

The White Sulphur Springs aro situ?
ated on Howard's Creek, in Greenbrier
County, West Virginia; and upon the
Western slope of the great Apaluchinn
chain of mountains which separate tho
waters that flow iuto Chesapeake Bay
from thoso that run into the Golf of
Mexico. Thc situation of the spring T~
elevated and beautifully picturesque,
surrounded by mountains on every side.
Kate's Mountain is in full view, and
about two miles to tho South; to the
West, and distant about one mile, aro
tho Greenbrier Mountains, while the
j towering Allegheny, in its magnificent
proportions, is found five miles to the
North and East. The spring is in the
midst of tho celebrated "Spring Re?
gion," having the "Hot," "Warm" and
I Healing Springs from thirty to thirty-five
miles to the North; the "Sweet" and the
Sweet Chalybeate, sixteen miles to the
East; the "Salt" and the Red Sulphur,
tho ono twenty-four, the other forty-one
miles to the South. Its latitude is about
37'.j degrees North, and its longitude
3}'? degrees West from Washington. Its
elevation above tide-water is 2,000 feet
Tho temperature of its waters is G2 de?
grees Fab., from which, ns wo are in?
formed, they do not vary during the heat
of summer or the cold of winter.
In the spring of 1857, this property
was purchased by a company of gentle?
men, residing principally in Virginia,
who, in virtue of au Act of the Lcgisla
1 ature, associated themselves in a joint
stock company, under tho nnrno of the
"White Sulphur Springs Company." In
conformity with tho public demand for
a large extension of nocommodatious,
the company immediately entered upon
a liberal and extensive system of im?
provement, designed alike to increase
tho capaoity of the property for the
accommodation of visitors, and at tho
same time to beautify sud adorn the
i grounds. To these cuds they havo erect?
ed tho largest building in tho Southern
country-its dimensions being 400 feet
in length by a corresponding width, and
covering more than an aore of ground.
The building 13 appropriated for receiv?
ing-rooms, dtni?g-room, ball-room, par?
lors, lodging-roonis, etc. Tho parlor is
one of the most elegant and spacious
saloons in America, being half as largo
again as tho celebrated East room in
Washington. The dining-room is one of
the largest in tho world, being upwards
of 308 feet long, by a corresponding
width, and conveniently sca*ing 1,200
persons. Tho company has also built a
large number of handsome cottages for
families. In several respects the grounds
havo boen greatly improved, particularly
by tho construction Of broad serpentine
walks in various directions through the
lawns, and by widening nud extending
the romantic and popular "Stroll" known
as tho "Lover's Walk." With these im?
provements, together with a new and
capacious bathing establishment, and
tho removal of many of the old buildings
to now locations, by which tho lawns aro
enlarged and adorned, the property,
aliko in capacity, in convenionco and in
tho elogfthco of its arrangements, exhi?
bits a new and greatly improved appear?

waters aro so well known, that any spe

yesterday by tho agents in this city,
Messrs. Robert Mure it Co., wo learn
that the first steamer of the Chnrleston

Liverpool for this port direct on or about

it may not be a very largo one, certainly

THE NicKEnsoN HOUSE.-A correspond?
ent of tho Boston Post, who has been on
a visit to Columbia, writes as follows of
thia popular hotel :
"This house is regarded ns one of the
very best in the Southern country. Ita
daily arrivals show that it is appreciated
by the traveling public. Evidently, the
best cluss of travel riunrters at tho Nick
er8on, and all speak in wnrm prni.se of its
mnnngerrient. The locution is nmougthc
finest in tho city."
Messrs. R. & W. C. Bwaffield announce
the opening of their fall and winter
stock of clothing nud gentlemen's fur?
nishing goods. Their assortment is va?
ried, and in addition to the ready-made
articles, they have tho very latest styles
of piece goods, which will be made up iu
the very best style. The services of an
experienced French cutter have been en?
gaged and everything necessnry for a
vigorous fall campaign hos been secured.
Give him a trial.
In connection with the recent terrible
murdor in tho sand-hills, it is bat just to
say that it was duo to the promptness of
Magistrate Solomon and the energy of
Sheriff Frnzeo that the partios who, by
the evidence before the Coroner's jury,
were implicated in the affair, were ar?
rested and locked up on Sunday last.
While searching for these partie?, tho
Sheriff was also looking out for an
escaped convict, and succeeded in get?
ting possession of his cast-off clothing,
which wns handed over to the Coroner.
Chief Radcliffe bas since examined
Foster and Isom, and discovered bloody
evidences, which it will be difficult to
explain satisfactorily. It is a little sin?
gular that these persons were not search?
The sagacity and foresight of the She?
riff in arresting and detaining these par?
ties, is tho more to be commended, since
i this further evidence has been obtained
I against them.
