Terrible Outrage in Virginia—The
Punishment to be Inflicted.
The Rev. Calvin Fairbanks, a hot gos
peller of the Radical persuasion, in a letter
to the, Anti-Slavery Standard, brings a
serious charge against tbe F. F. Vs of the
Ancient Dominion, whlcb, if true, as we
doubt not it is, ought to consign them to
some other country, whose geography has
not yet been written, and at the same time
blot the name of the Virginia which gave
birth to Washington, Jewbrson, Madi-
son, Monroe, and, by a free gift of her
lands, to the States of Ohio, : Indiana,
Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and other
States and parts oi States, from the roll of
the Union. Tbe charge Is " In the words
following, to wit: n
The old citizens treat Northern people
teachers, business men. and their families
with negative courtesy.
This is terrible, and glad are we to see
that our ancient friend ot the Cincinnati
Chronicle, in sober seriousness, thus gives
vent, not only to bis Indignation, but to a
remedy for the evil complained of.' The
Chronicle says :
As long as tbey the old citizens of Vir
ginia exhibit such a disposition they have
no claims upon tbe generous forbearance of
the citizens of tbe North. A firm and un
yielding course toward them on the partof
the Government will melt the ice, ana
bring- them again Into harmonious relations
with tue rest or tbe United States."
What business have these old citizens of
Virginia to treat the school marms sent to
their region to teach the negro 'ideas
how to shoot" and to hate their former
masters tbe Carpet baggers,' whose busi
ness Is office--their wives, who, with them'
selves, only prate on the interesting sub
jects ot Plymouth Rock and Boning Com'
mon with but M negative courtesy ? These
old citizens are a u conquered people" and
live In a "conquered province," and they
have no rights tbat the New England Rad'
leal is bonnd to respect. Tbey should be
taught to be subject to their masters, who
are the lords of tbe New England loom,
owners of Plymouth Rock the admirers
of Boston Common and the eulogists ot the
Boston organ and are ready to make oath
If necessary, that Boston is the Hub ot tbe
If the Radical majority in Congress will
but exercise, as the Chronicle urges, a
' firm and unyielding course towards" these
old citizens on the part ' of tbe Govern
ment" Congress being the Government
it "will melt the ice, and bring tbem again
Into harmonious relations with the rest of
the United States," and lorce them to the
exercise of potitive, not "negative courtesy"
towards all New England people, good,
bad and indifferent, tbat may stray down to
that part of Dixie In search of fortune,
official honors and lame.
These Northern people nine out ot ten
of them from New England when they go
South, confer a favor on old citizens by no
ticing tbem, and yet these advances, from
the unknown, are met with but nega
tive,"! bat is, polite, but frigid courtesy."
When England was conquered by the Nor
mans, the churlish Saxons did the same
thing toward their conquerors, refusing to
accept them as husbands for their daugh
ters, or wives for their sons. ' The Normans
did, as the Chronicle wishes the Northern
Congress to do with tbe Southern' people
They gave tbem laws which, if tbey failed
to break their spirit, added to their hate,
Unless forced to do so, the Saxon refused
to receive -tne Norman conqueror as his
guest or his friend. ' For this, the wise Nor
man. like our Radicals, and like tbe Chron
icle, wise In their concelt,euacted that when
"the curfew tolled the knell of parting day,"
every light, in every Saxon castle and ham
let, had to be at once extinguished, to the
end that, if a family had visitors, they must
entertain tbem in tbe dark. Tbe Chronicle
wishes to "put out tbe light, and then, put
out the light," of Virginia to learn the old
citizens that " negative courtesy" towards
Yankefe school marms is a high crime and
serious misdemeanor. This full realization
oi the situation by our Cincinnati cotem-
porary, shows that it is not destined alone
to u Chronicle small beer," but has higher,
nobler us-pirationt., .r. ,i .
Senator Harlan Certifies for Senator
The charge persistently made by a por
tion of the Radical press ot Michigan that
Senator TChandler, whose term of office is
about to expire, is a disgrace to the State
and to tbe Senate, in consequence of his1
habits of .beastly intoxication, has met a
denial on the part of Senator Harlan.

As I have served with Mr. Chandler in
the Senate for nearly twelve years, sitting
by his side, at an adjoining desk, during
tbe greater part of tbat period, it seems to
me but a simple act of justice, due from one
triena to another, tbat 1 should say tbat at
no time could the charge of drunkennes
have been truthfully applied to him; and
that, during tbe latter part of bis Senatori
al service, he has abstained entirely from
tbe use. of intoxicating drinks as a bever
age." This ought to settle the question for Mr.

Is a blessing vouchsafed to few Even tine who
have been favored by nature with strong oonetitn;
tions and vigorous frames are apt to neglect the
precautions necessary to preserve these) preoioa
endowments. Indeed, as a rule, the more healthy
and robust a Ban is, the more liberties he is in.
dined to take with his own physique. It if soma
consolation to the naturally weak and feeble to
know that ther can be so invigorated and buijt np, -by
a proper use of the ttean which seienee baa
plaeed at their disposal, a to have a mnch better i
chance of long life and exemptions from disease J
and pain, than the most athletic 'of their fellowr I
who are foolish enough to suppose themselves in.
vulnerable, and act accordingly.

concerned, ad nauseam, in the hope of rivaling it;
but they hare all either perished in. Oi attempt,
