Vir"inia, oddly enough, laps over upon
tlie AVestern boundary, with a nice little
rtrip of land, still more oddly called the
Pan-Handle. Our State too, has a sort of
pan-hundle, or hook, on the south-western

was called the Triangle. It was not includ

were both made by one survey of Pen n

by extending Mason and Ilizon's line live

The Lesson of the Election.
The latest advices from the recent elec
tions in Massachusetts, New ork, ew
Jersey, "Wisconsin and Minnesota, confirm
the good news in regard to them which we
nuhlii-ned on the morning alter tney too
-M.ssArhusetU has cone for the
Union bv even a stronger voie man ever.
The Union majority in New York is be
tween twenty and twenty-five thousand,
and the Union party has an increased ma-
ioritv in both branencs oi uio wgniaiurc.
Xew Jersey all nan to ner is
redeemed. ' The " Camden and Amboy
Rio Van "Winkleism" which John Has-
kin so vehemently denounced, is repudl
ated by three thousand majority, and the
Union party haye secured tho control of
both branches of the State Legislature,
thus making the ratification of the anti-
slavery amendment certain. ' Minnesota
and Wisconsin have gone for the Union
by their usual overwhelming majorities.
Everywhere the Darty of Union and lib-
ertv have met with success beyond all
their expectations and hopes.
The result of this grand triumph is not
circumscribed by local boundaries. In
fact, the election of one ticket or the other,
in each of the States, so far as personal
merits or State issues are concerned, is a
matter of very little consequence com
pared with the effect of these elections
upon the national policy. They came at
a critical moment. The Democratic party
seized upon Hie natural re-actlon fiotu the
high-toned feeling of the war, and upon
the conservative and retro-active experi
mental policy of the President to make
renewed effort to regain power. Had
they triumphed, the President would
have felt the effect of their success, while
the Union men in the coming Congress
would have been afraid to take the ad
vanccd position necessary at the present
time. Their utter and overwhelming de
feat has had, of course, a directly contrary
effect. The Union majority in the next
Congress will be strengthened and encour
aged in their position. The President
too, will discover that the party which
elected him is still the controlling one,
and is powerful enough to give him
the support of the country in
the most radical measures which he may
propose. But the result of the elec
tions will be felt not less powerfully i
the Southern States. Tho politicians of
the South, who, presuming upon the old'
time servility of the Democratic party.
have hoped to gain power, assume tha
rebel debt, repudiate the national debt,
and re-establish slavery in one form or
another, will discover that a radical changi
has come over the spirit of National pol
tics. The lick-spittle Democracy,
these elections will teach them,
have lost all power and all hopi
of regaining it. The North,
well as the frecdmen of the South, has
been emancipated by tho war. The rulers
at the National capital are of another tem
per, and they will not be apt to brook defi
ance and insolence on the part of the rebels
whom they have jnst subdued. Theknowl
edge of these facts will produce a most sal
utary chane-e in the attitude of the South
ern people. They will go about the woi
of reconstruction in a different spirit and
we trust with better results. In this view
of the result of the elections, therefore, as
well as in all others, there is much occasion
for thankfulness and joy.
The Florida Convention—Gov. Marvin's
The members of the Florida Reconstruc
tion Convention, elected on the 10th of
October, assembled jit Tallahassee on the
25th of that month, and on the same day
the message of Provisional Governor Mar
vin was delivered and read to that body.
The Governor does not think it would be
wise at present to confer the privilege of
voting on the negroe, and believes Con
gress will not demand that concession on
the part of the States lately in revolt as
an indisputable preliminary to the admis
sion of their representatives ; but he urges
upon the Convention, as a matter of the
plainest justice as well as of wisdom, that
laws for the most complete protection of
the frecdmen's civil rights be passed, and
that their testimony be received in the
courts. Without these, he says, the color
ed people will have no safeguards against
the impositions of cruel and dishonest em
ployers, and with them he thinks this
emancipated people will be generally con
tented, industrious and enterprising, even
in the absence of the exercise of the bal
lot. He slso recommends that the Con
vention declare the secession ordinance
not repealed, but null and void, and advo
cates the adoption by the Legislature of the
amendment to the National Constitution
forever prohibiting slavery throughout the
country. It is not believed that the mem
bers of the Convention will come up to
Governor Marvin's standard of progress,
since nearly all of them were elected as
unequivocal opponents of granting any
privileges whatever to the negroes, and,
though no opposition is expected to the act
recognizing the abolition of slavery, it is
supposed that the State rebel war debt will
not be repudiated, and that the secession
ordinance will not be declared null, but
A Chance for Northern Labor.
It is believed that three-fourths of the
territory of South Carolina is now lying
uncultivated. If such is the case, and If,

S tates a tempting prospect for agricultural
enterprise is opened. The soil is undoubted
ly fertile. Even the lands exhausted by un
wise tillage, have, to a great extent, been
allowed to lie fallow during the war, and
have thus regained somewhat of their for
mer strength through the enforced neglect.
Governor Perry insists that the Palmetto
State ought to be able to support seven
millions of population instead of seven
hundred thousand. There is, indeed, no
reason why this empire itself should not

favor of ; assuming the rebel debt, will
probably succeed. Holden went as far as
a decent man could in concessions to the

The Growth and Wealth of the Silver

Nevada will become teeming hives of
industry and wealth, and that the treasure

exceed, in amount and permanence of

Five years ago, when the first sjlyer

ritory contained hardly a white inhabitant
aside from the emigrants passing through
to the gold fields of California. It offered
no inducements to affnculture. me sou
being rhiefly rocky and barren, and the
water in tne streams strongly nmuiuiu,
and hence useless. Perhaps a more for
biddintr retrion (aside from climate, which
is very salubrious) cannot be found else
where in the same latitude.
In four years of war this rooky waste
has risen to the dignity of a Btata, con
taining a population, the most enterpris
ing in the world, numbering 90,000, with
populous cities, excellent roads, telegraphs
aehoola and churches.
Virginia City, the metropolis of the
State, situated on the eastern slope of the
Sierra Navadas in the original WTashoo
region, has a population of 20,000, and
will compare favorably in point of busi
ness and buildings with many Atlantic
cities, although the absence of vegetation
gives it a blank appearance so far as beau
ty is concerned.
Austin, the seat of Lander county, and
headquarters of the Roese river region,
but two years old, yet has a population
10,000 and is thriving well.
Nevada is perhaps the only instance
a State being wholly based on a single in
terest, and the importance of that interest
can be judged accordingly. There is abso
lutely nothing there for a State to rest upon
but the silver mines. Fortunately that
basis is proving broad enough to support
No railroad yet enters the Silver State,
but the Pacific road is already climbing
the western slope of the Sierras, and
few months will bring the cars to ginia.
At present all communication with Cal
ifornia and the coast is by way of the
stage road over the summit of
Sierras to Sacramento in California. Over
this mountain road trains of wagons and
stages are constantly passing latter trav
elling at the break-neck pace of ten
twelve miles an hour, and using up horse
flesh at an incredible rate. The overland
stage-road traverses Nevada its whole
length from East to West, passingthrough
the centre of the mining regions. The
surveyed line of the Pacific Railroad
passes nearly through the centre of
State, following the valley of the Humboldt.
SILVER MINES AND MINING.
It was settled very early in the history
of Nevada that her silver mines were
rich, numerous, and practically inex
haustible, but the difficulty in 18G1-2
to discern a process by which to extract
the metal from the baser substances with
out too great waste. Hundreds of experi
ments were tried, running through months,
constiroinn rnillinns of capital, and rlic
couraging many oi ue laint-hearted.
at last the difficulty yielded to persever
ance and science, so that now the process
of silver quartz mining and amalgamating
is reduced to an absolute certainty, and
only objection to investment removed.
Those who engage in silver mining
now will reap the benefit of these early
experiments and disappointments, and
after sinking a shaft and testing their ore,
can compute with mathematical certainty
the chances of success.
To get an idea of a silver ledge, lode,
lead, let one divide an apple diagonally
through the middle and then place be
tween the two parts a slice of beef
any substance unlike the apple) a quar
ter of an inch thick. The sliee of beef
will represent the veins or leaf of silver
bearing quartz, standing on its edge and
running the whole length of the moun
tain the upper edge cropping out at
surface and the lower extending an unknown
distance into the bowels of
earth. The lode usually has a pitch
inclination of from five to fifty degrees,
and varies in thickness from two to forty
The hills in which the lodes are found
are rock. By some internal force, years
ago, the silver veins have been injected
from below to the' yery surface of
earth. Late geological surveys have
shown these Nevada ledges to be of the
same chain and formation as the long
known silver mines of Mexico.
Of course pure nicer is rarely taken out
ot tnese mines, it being always combined
with baser material from which it must
be separated by the milliner process.
This process consists briefly in crushing
the quartz to powder, roasting the powder
or oust in intensely Heated furnaces to ex
pel several base ingredients, then amalga
mating the silver with quicksilver, which
being stirred in with the roasted dust seeks
out and .unites with every particle of the
precious metal ; then the quicksilver
evaporated, and the pure silver remains.
This is made into bricks of various size
and shipped as bullion.'
Owing to the expensiveness of the mill
ing process capital is indispensable to silver
mining. And this is the great want of N
at this moment. About $100,000
required to open a ledge, build an ordiuary
ten-stamp mill, and pay expenses till re
The extreme profitableness of Nevada
silver mining has resulted in the absorp-

ifornia, and this goes but a little way
such a boundless field. Even the dry
goods merchants of San Francisco have
stripped their own business to invest
Nevada. The rates of interest are such
would swamp any ordinary enterprise
the Atlantic States in a single year. For
instance, one half the quartz mills in Ne
vada have been built and started with
capital borrowed at rates averaging five
per cent per month, and compounded every
montn at that, lue average rates at ir-
ginia Uity now, on good paper, are two to
live per cent, a month.
And yet under this terrible pressure
usury, and witn an tne dimcuities arising
from lack of transportation, &cn not one
mill in a hundred has failed to make the
fortunes of the builders in two years, when
run with ordinary skill and economy.
Many of the mills already built in Ne
vada are not connected with any partic
ular mine, but crush quartz for other par
ties at so much per ton a very lucrative
and sure business. Then, should the bot
tom fall from half the mines in Nevada
to-morrow, all mill property would still
be a good investment, as there is never a
lack of custom work to do.
It is difficult for the comparatively
steady-going people of the East to imagine
the headlong energy, and sleepless indus
try that characterize the denizens of Ne
vada. Very few drones have found their
way over the snow-covered Sierras, and
those few do not feel at home. Ordinary
men going to Nevada soon quicken the
pulse and the pace, join in the excitement
mining life, and wonder at the hum
drum ot otner days.
Every Jevadian considers his " home
be in some Atlantic State, to which he
going when his mill or his claim has
brought him a few more thousands.
Women are scarce in the new State,and
each new arrival produces a sensation.
The proportion of bachelors among min
ing" men is yery largo. .

THE NEXT CONGRESS.
The Speakership and the Committees.
"Agate," the well-informed Washing
ton correspondent of the Cincinnati Ga
zette writes as follows to that paper in re
gard to the organization of the next na
tional House of Representatives :
SPEAKERSHIP OF THE HOUSE.
I suppose the re-election of Mr. Schuy
ler Colfax to the Speakership of the
House is about as certain as the meeting
of roncress. Sundry other men, however,
will be industriously pressed by their re
spective friends, with no hope of their
election, but with, a yiew to seourp for
them such prproinence as win pe neiq ia
entitle them to the chairmepsliipe of lpad
jnc committees. Among the number,
Gov. Henry J. Raymond may possibly,
and General N. P. Banks almost certain
ly, be found. Were the field an open
one, General Banks, whose previous ca
reer as Hpeaker of the House (s the most
successful chapter of a pretty successful
life, would give Mr. Colfax a very close
race. But thp old members spontaneous

Banks would be returned to Congress, (in
point of fact be has not yet been eleoted,
but his nomination in that D'strict is
equivalent to an election;) and Colfax's
unbounded nersonal rjopularitv puts him
as much further ahead s General Bunks'
recent political and military career has
alienated from bim old friends and old
Raymond's friends emphatically deny
that he has any aspirations for the Speak
ership ; and I know that he said as much
to Colfux a year ago. On the other hand
indiscreet and doubtless unauthorized per
sons have been boasting here of the large
sums that could be raised to put Governor
Raymond in the Speaker's chair.
The "Father of the House," Elihu B.
Washburne, of Illinois, was a candidate
two years ago, but it is stated he will now
support Colfax. General Ashley, of Ohio,
will doubtless have complimentary votes
in the caucus. So may John A. Bingham
of Ohio, and a half dozen other gentlemen
of previous prominence in Congressional

will nominated on the second, if not the
first ballot, by an overwhelming majority.
QUESTIONS CONCERNING COMMITTEES.
His friends, however, (and no man has
more) will not fail to remind him of cer
tain changes which they feel entitled to
expect. The breakingup of the old Ways
and Means Committee, and the division
of its duties among three new committees;
will relieve him from a serious embarrass
ment in the person of Thad. Stevens,
whose longer continuance as its leader (at
the head of the Ways and Means) the
House was determined not to tolerate.
The old veteran will now be made
Chairman of some committee bctit
sing bis great abilities and honored
services through many years; but when
he will no longer be able to embarrass the
finances or hinder business. A question
will also be brought to Mr. Colfax's atten
tion concerning the propriety of retaining
at the head of the Election Committee that
very estimable gentleman and able Repre
sentative, Mr. Henry L. Dawes, of Massa
chusetts. The Committee on Elections
will be the most important committee in
the next House, at least during the first
session. Before it will be broiuj1" e"rd
:..s to me u.n.i nu.i ; me cases of all the
Representatives elect from the late rebel
States, and its decision will largely control
the action of the House. It will be
worthy of the gravest consideration
whether Mr. Dawes' past course at
the head of that Committee points to him
as a fair representative of the great ma
jority of his party on the questions he will
be required to decide. He may be mis
understood ; but these are times when no
body should be appointed to important
trusts in the dark. His course in the last
Congress would lead to the belief that be
favors the immediate .and unquestioning
admission of the members elect from the
rebel States. It will need but few days
after the assembling of Congress to show
whether he will in this fairly represent the
majority in the party that is to organize

WASHINGTON, January 5, 1861.
Mr Dear Sir: The immediately im
portant thing to be done is the occupation
of the forts and arsenal in Florida. The
naval station and forts at Pensacola are
first in consequence. For this a force is
necessary. I have conversed with Mr.
Toombs upon the subject he will start
this week for Georgia, and says if the con
vention or Governor will ask Governor
Brown, of Georgia, for a force, he will im
mediately send an efficient force and take
tne naw yard and forts.
The occupation of the Navy Yard will
give us a good supply of ordnance and
make the capture of the fort easier. Major
Chase built the forts, and will know all
about them. Lose no time, for my opin
ion is, iriniiis win oe very soon dispatcned
to reinforce and strengthen the forts in
Florida. The arsenal at Chattahoochie
should be looked to, and that at once, to
prevent the removal of arms doposited

good success this year raising Sorghum,
that he proposes to build a mill next sum

sorghum for which he promises to furnish

able encouragement is given. This will
be worth the consideration of those within

Sheriff Burilson received a telegram
from Cincinnati on Tuesday of last week
directing bim to arrest a young man call
ine himself Charley Clifford upon the
evoninsr train f the A. & G. W. R. R
and hold him until certain parties should
arrive from thatcity. Accordingly, when
the train came the Sherifl' promptly took
said "Charley" in custody, and forthwith
conveyed him to the Ltock-up. On mat
inz the customary search of the effects and
person of the prisoner, however, the Sher
iff made the astounding discovery tnat he
was no man at all, but a woman in male
attire. Her story was that her home was
in Boston, Massachusetts, from which she
had been enticed by one Charley Clifford,
under a promise of marriage, and that after
accompanying him to Cleveland, Pitts
burgh, Cincinnati and Louisville, (in the
meantime having donned a suit of
Charley's clothes) and finding that he n
only utterly refused to marry her, but sub
jected her to the vilest ill-treatment, so
confiscated what money she could lay her
band upon belonging to him, and, assum
ing his name, started for home. A through
railroad ticket to Boston, and other cir
cumstances corroborated. It afterward
transpired that the prisoner was not th
person who had committed tbe crime to
which the arrest had been made, and
throueh the aid of Mrs. Burilson and som
of the neighboring ladies, the misguided
young woman was supplied with a suit of
female apparel, and on i nursday evening
sent torward upon ner journey.
