Wodnesday. Sept, 4. 1878.
It seems there can be no precedent
in government without its votaries aud
followers. Who would have supposed
that Governor ?-Holliday, in casting
about for a prototype executive, would
have fallen upon and adopted Grant?
Those who knew Fred. Holliilay but as
an fumble citizen and methodical office
Lawyer un'urally supposed he would be
a laborious governor, always in his
i flic;', dispising nd tape and figuring
the Commonwealth out of her involve?
ments. Put lo! the disappointment of
his friends is not less in this,
thnn at the agility with which he leaped
into the arms of the enemies of hi?
State at the first Safer of opportunity.?
Yaaity! Vanity! all is Vanity, saith
the Preacher. From the movemtnt
when Governor Helliday shut himself
off trim hi? pesple iu a private palace
car, exhibited himself in a grand circus
street parade for the first public in?
auguration of a Virginia Governor, he
I Hi ay cd the weak point in his armor
aud became a beiptos* nurseling iu the
arms of the wary lullaby singers,
chanting in his ready, open car
"1 rcttuft hit!* child in tha connty 0
Daddy aud maims; both said so."
Sec how elegantly it has all been done
this summer! This, the first, summer
of the term. Une week at Mt. Vernon,
one at Lexington, one at I.yucbburg.
one at Blacksbnrg, one at White
bur. one at Charleston, one at
Staunten, one in Albcrmarle, but
longest of all, according to the brief
announcements of the Richmond papers.
he was at a 'fashionable watering place
Now we freely concede that Virginia
would better have no governor than
Governor Holliday; but he is ?till the
governor,and in l'ichmoud long enough,
and at the right time, io do mischief
and damage, and these absences only
the better prepare him for the work
which the ring associations cut out. For
: ce, when the Governor wa? in
this county he was observed to speak to
tut vtry few men on public matters,and
fort!.i sehe had nothing but epithets
aud vinq cration collected among the
nabobs of White ?sulphur and other
"fashionable watering places." Like
.loin Sherman when he goes to Wall
I t? consult with gamblers on
American finance, so Got. Helliday
toa college faculty ora fashionable
watering place to learn how to de?
nounce his constituents as repudiators,
command?t! and agrarians, ana to have
what small information he had con?
cerning Virginia's fiscal affairs give
pines to the views o? this or the other
L financier who amassed wealth as
a government contractor during the
war, and now has leisure to dispense
opinions to small governors of dis?
reputable people iu matters concerning
their personal honor, state integrity,
moral and legal obligations and ability
to discharge them.
These are some of the effects of
absenteeism on our governor, as ob?
servable in a very few minutes of con?
versation With him, and hence we are
more than sorry that the peripatetic
Giant should have so deeply impressed
his policy and administration hither
ward. We had hope that a slight
commingling with the people would
bring the swimming head of our execu?
tive to a dead level, but when he spews
tLe constituent out of his mouth as an
agrarian or communist for the offense
of being a greenbacker. or repels him as
a rrpudiator for opposing an enacted
fraud, we accept that Ephraim is joined
to his idols, Gideon ensnared by the
golden ornaments of the Midiauitcs,
and that the "fashionable wateri?g
places" Will exercise the veto power in
the Old Dominion for the whole term.
i Ither and still more humiliating con?
sequences of the Governor's roaming
around are remarked iu his continuing
anc? i : the real situation andcon
dition of Virginia's finances. Gov. Hol?
iday never wa? a statistician. His taste
and pride have been in abstruse meta*
phhvtet. But he was always a student,
and the very natural inference was that
he would carry his industry into the new
field of labor in which be coveted em?
ployaient. In this again are we disap?
pointed. For instance. the# Governor
BStys 10 cents Increase of taxation will
be ample to meet the demands upon our
State treasury. How utterly absurd !
If it be susceptible of demonstration that
tfts ou an assessment of $323.980.?
771.59will paya deficit of over a mil
lien of dollars we should be gratified to
It is an idle waste of valuable guber?
natorial tmc to j celdle insipid platitudes
throughout this portion of the State.?
Our people knew how to protect the
honor of Virginia before self-appointed
lecturers began their system of instruc?
tion. It is equally idle to attempt to
bolster up an administration by mis
re presenting the real condition of affairs.
Almost every man now knows for him?
self, and, besides holdiog Governor Hol?
liday responsible for what he says and
does aa their executive, the people of
the Valley will now, henceforth and
forever, remember his declarations and
promises when he came forward as a
Valley man for the high aDd honorable
office which they clamed as the due of
their section of the btate.
One night last week several young
men visited the grapery of Bishop Mc
Closkcy, near Louisville, Kentucky,
aid whilst filling their baskets with
grapes were fired upon by the watch?
man, and one of them, Philip Haag,
received wouuels from which he died in
a few hours. The watchman claims
that Haag attempted to take his gun
away from him, and it was dischargod
in the struggle.
Bon. John. T. Harri?,
The Democratic convention of the
Seventh Congressional district of "Vir?
ginia having declared it inexpedient to
make a nomination for Congress, the
gentlemanwhose name heads this arti
cal has declared himself for re-election,
and.although he has several opponeuts,
from information received from re?
liable sources,we feel assured that his
re-election is certain.
Judge Harris has fer a number of years
represented his dirtrict in Congress,aud
we but express the sentiment of all who
h ave known of his career, in pronoun?
cing him one of the most efficient aud in?
telligent representatives. The position
which he has held on important com?
mittees ot the House is an evidence ol
the fact that his ability is properly ap?
preciated. X? representative has ever
been more prompt and energetic in work?
ing for the interest of his constituents.
His defeat would be a great calamity.?
Wheat Crop? Abroad.
Mr. Caird's estimate in the London
Times is that, although the new crops
is fully up to the average, Knglantl
alone will require RH,000,000 bushels,
that the French, on account of a abort
crop, will be buyers instead ol sellers.
Letters from Germauy show that the
wheat crop in Southern Germany has
been greatly injured by heavy rains.
and a well-iuformcd writer believes
that large purchases from this country
will be made for German consumption.
A cable dispatch states that the crops
in Roumania "have been very seriously
damaged by recent rains." In Austria.
the yield is iu average quantity, but
inferior in quality, because of rust, and
iu Hungary the harrest had been
interrupted by bad weather. Advices
from South Russia promise only "fairly
good" crops. Paris advices of August
7 arc that the yield is ^unsatisfactory,
being inferior both in quantity and ?also
quality, except in Northern Fiance,and
that France my be expected to import
40,000,000 bushels of wheat. Thus all
the information at hand gives promise
of an unusually large demand for
6km. Joski'U F. Johnston, who has
been nominated as the democratic con?
servative candidate for Congress in the
Richmond Va., district, is in the seven
ty-second year of his age, haying been
born in Prince Edward county, Ya..
February. 1SU7. He graduated at West
Point as a second lieutenant in \>2'J.
aud served in Florida against the
Semin?le Indians, a portion of the time
on the staff of Gen. Winileld Scott. In
1837 ho resigned his commission to en?
gage in civil engineering, but in 1S38
re-entered the service as first lieutenant
of topographical engineers and for
gallautry in Florida was breveted
captain. At the siege of Vera Cruz.
Mexico, lie served on engineer duty.
was appointed lieutenant colonel of
voltigeurs; at Cerro Gordo received
severe wounds and was breveted major
and colonel. He afterwards partici?
pated in the battles of Contreras.
Churubusco, Moliuo del Rey, Chapul
tepee and the final assault on the City
of Mexico, being again wounded at the
latter place. In 1855 General Johnston
was appointed lieuteuaut of cavalry,
aud took part in the Utah expedition as
inspector general. In 1800 he was ap?
pointed quartermaster general with the
rank of brigadier geucral, which position
he resigned in 1861 to follow the for?
tunes of Virginia. His career iu the
Confederate army, where he rose from
the rank of major general to that of a
ful! general, is familiar to the public.?
He was early wounded in the advance
upon McClellan, and was immediately
succeeded by Gen. Robert F. Lee, and
subsequently, as is known, his military
operations were in the Southwest.
After the war iu the South, with heati
quarters at Savannah, Ca., and a few
months ago made his home in Rich
mood, Ya. (?en. Johnston married a
sister of the Hon. Robert M. McLanc,
of Baltimore, who is an aspirant for

The Bankrupt law expired last Satur?

have been of some service in lar^c com?

A Cheyenne dispatch says the remov?
al of spikes and fish plates a week ago
from a rail two miles ca6t of Medicine
Row, near a deep ravine, gare rise to
suspicion that it had been done with a
view to wreck and rob a train. Deputy
Sheriff Widdowfield and another man
named Vincent started on what was
believed to be the trail of the would be
robbers, and not returning a large party
started in search of them. Last Sunday
one of the party returned and stated
that the bodies of Widdowfield and Vin?
cent were found in a narrow cauon of
Elk mountain, where they probably niej
a gang of robbers and were killed.
Quite an excitement was created at
Readvillc, Mass., two years ago, by the
mysterious sickness of several of the

of which die from a peculiar malady. A

and another now lies dangerously sick,
