Facts vs. Assertions.
To. the editor of the Alexandria Gazette:
Senator Mabone's.recent political mani?
festo institutes, and also invites, compari?
sons between the services rendered by him?
self wbiie a I". S. Senator, and tho services
rendered i?y his predecessors, Senators
.; ::m\ Joioistou, and by Messrs. Bar
bou ? ::d other Virginia democrats in the
With ; ho subject matter generally of this
paper I have nothing to do ; those attacked
are able to defend themselves on the stump
and elsewhere, but bis presentation of his
case, es against Mr. Barbour, docs this gen?
tleman an injustice, iu, at least, two partic?
ulars, and .? desire, as a citizen of Alexan?
dria eounty, and as one thoroughly familiar
with the "free bridgs" fight of the la&t
twelve years, to correct it.
I aBSert in most positive terms that the
"free bridge," now being constructed across
iLo Potomac ai Georgetown, is due wholly
to the zeal and ability of IVIr. Barbjur. Tho
*o called Itiddleberger bill, which was de
u ed in'the 48th Congress, but was re?
vived and passed by the Senate in the 49th
jress, was without legal effect to attain
and compel thn erection of a bridge should
property owners refuse to sell to the govern
ment, until amended, und tho amendment
wherebya bridge could be compelled,not with
standing the ellbrts to prevent made by the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company and
other parlies in adverse interest, appears as
the third section of the freo bridge act ap?
proved Juuo 21st, ISSll. Mr. Biddleberger,
from some inexplicable reason, refused to
permit condemnatory powers to be given
tho government by his measure. I repeat?
edly culled his attention in tho 48th Con?
gress to this fatal defect, and to the fact that
the free bridge act of 1SS0 wa3 a legal abor?
tion, because of its failure to give the Secre?
tary of War power toacquireproperty by con?
demnation, thereby enabling owners of need?
ed lands to thwart its direction to build us a
bridge, but be invariably declined to accept
my suggestions, and tho bill was passed by
tho Senate precisely as dictated by him.
Thanks to Mr. Barbour, the House refused
iu tho iSth Congress to accept tho hill in
that form. It was again in tho 49th Con?
gress passed by the Senate unamended in
this particular, aud came over to tho House
committee, before which was House bill No.
2579, a still moro obnoxious bill, aud which
Mr. Barbour is charged by ?auator Mahone
as having permitted to die in committee.
Here, through Mr. Barbour'a firm stand
that no biil should go out of his committee
lacking condemnatory powor, an amend?
ment, authorizing condemnation if needs
be, was t?.cked upon it, und the bill so
amended becaruo a law ; House bill No.
2-379, of course, falling because of entire ab
m therein of provision for acquisition of
property of any nature. I charge tho act of
1SSU with being a legal abortion, because,
while it directed the Secretary of War to
build a bridge, it gave him no power to con?
demn, thereby putting him at the mercy of
contumacious or uvaricious land holders,
one of whom, for instance, asserting owner?
ship of the "Three Sisters Islands," at once
filed aclairn in tho War Department for $5,000
lor their use for pier purposes. Beside this,the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal claimed owner?
ship of a small portion of the ground on
which the Georgetown abutment, of the
Aqueduct bridge, stands, and refused to
a'neuate, thus effectually estopping the gov?
ernment from acquisition of that struck
It is possible that these and other own?
ers did not <lejiro condemnatory powers
given the tzovernment, us it is more than
likely that a commission of disinterested
citizens might not have awarded $5,000,
or other amount, for their properties.
The ability of thes? unwilling owners to
estop may bo appreciated, if we remember
that tbo govi-rumeut is at present unable to
build the Eastern Branch bridge in Wash
ington city, with thoownersof lands affected
m to donate,though theinvontivegenius
:?: the Attorney General's office has been en?
deavoring for months to devise some means
euahiiny: the secretary of War to acquire
the property needed for abutments etc., in
tin; absence n express statutory provision.
Under such circumstances Mr. Barbour
fought for the relief of the citizens of Alex
andria county. Ho at one stage asked me
lor my protest in writing,which I submitted,
and he assured me that our prayer for an
amendment rendering us independent of
property owners, both on tho District and
Virginia sides of tho Potomac, should be
granted. The act of 1SSO, aud the erecting of
amsguificieut bridge thereunder by the Sec?
retary of War at Georgetown Drove how
weil be served us. We owe the bridge to
bis efforts in our bjbalf. But for these
we would have been su?erers under the
[ Kiddleb<;rger bill, or House bill No. 2579, if
I either had become a law without bis amend
I mer.t, jusi as we were under the pernicious ;
act of 1SS0.
! Again, in the 47th Congress Senator Ma- :
! none imroduced a bill for the relief of Alex
I audria county, Virginia, which a9 ho states
was rel'ered. This prayed relief was for r? I
imbursemeut of the county for moneys ex- j
pended for freedmen on the Arlington
estate When the government bought this
? siate in 1S6-1 it was withdrawn from our
taxable.?, but the indigent freedmen thereou
were loft for U3 to support and to school, a
-upport and schooling costing us in some
years as much as S4.C00.
The bill was prepared by myself, and was
accompanied with a largely s-gned petition,
j setting forth the facts. Yet, Senator Ma
I hone endorsed the bill "By Bequest" when
having if. introduced, and never ty my
knowledge, permitted any citizen of the
county n conference with him iu iis behalf,
i nor look any steps to aid us iu securing a
! hearing before the Senate Judiciary Com
'. mittle His endorsement, as much as his
j subsequent indifference, throttled us. On
j the contrary Mr. Barbour. after iutroducing
I the same bill in the House, repeatedly se
| cured u? hearings before the House Juciici
j ary Coinmitto?', one.' beaded a delegation of J
I citizens from Alexandria county to confer
with Mr. Raortull, at the tatter's residence,
and discussed there with us for an evening
the matter in issue. Thar the measure
"died" in the House committee is true, but
the death anil funeral are none of Mr. Bar
bour's or outs. H<- riever slabbed us iu the
back by a refusal to father our bill under
the endorsement of "By Rt quest" there?
upon. The government purchased Arling?
ton in 1SG4, au estate worth a million,?it
would sell to day fur more than that sum ?
for the pittance u I $150,000, a! once refused
to pay taxes therean, covered it. with freed
men, collecting ever since routs from them
as faithfully and religiously *a a Shylock,
compelled us to feed, clothe and s::hoo!
them, refused us assistance oyeo to '.he ex?
tent of an ambulartce when small-pox broke
out among them, and which involved us in
the expense of nearly $1,000 to s'amp out
the pest, and in everywise imposed upon us
unjust and inequitable burdens We, nat?
urally, felt we wero entitled i>; recognition,
relief and reimbursement at the hands of]
our legislators in Congress. In so far as
Mr. Barbour had power to act for us we had
redress and rtiief. Xo man could have done
more; wa got absolutely nothiug n the
hands of our Senator, Gen, Mahone..
I do not want to do Senator Mahone the
slightest injustice, but if hp did anything,
near or remote, in our behalf, if he did not
designedly strangle us by his endorsement
of "By Request, 'and worso, by refusal af?
terward to hear ue, or to ask others to hear
us, then I am iu ignorance, end would moat
gladly give him due credit.
As an old lino whig, by heredity and ed?
ucation, and as a republican whose first
vote was cast for Fremont and last for
Blaine, I am. perhaps, in sympathy with
Gen. Mahone in his aggressiveness against
the democratic party, and thereby in polit?
ical antagonism to Mr. Barbour. I certain?
ly would be in full accord with the Genoral
did ho not ask mo to subscribe to the Be
tersburg platform of 1SS2, which declares
that the State bonds after adjustment of |
the State debt upon the Riddleberger ba&ia
shall be subject to general and local taxa?
tion. I wars willing to accept such adjust?
ment, but an an ex-citizen of Ohio?a State
supersensitive as to her debt and its iuter
est?I am unalle:ably opposed to the State j
of Virginia taxing the evidences?bonds- of]
But if Mr. Barbour be a Bourbon, as is
charged, his Bourbonism did not exhibit it?
self to mo when a prayer for relief was
made to him for a free bridge, or for re-im
bursement for moneys wrongfully wrung out
of the tax payers of Alexandria county, by
the government, for support and schooling
of its wards?the freedmen saddled on the
county through the Arlington estato with
its freedman's village nf war times.

The Gold Mining Company (location, Music Mountains, A. T,) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
