BATTLEFIELDS PARKS BILL.
The writer took occasion while in
Washington a few days ago to con'
suit with some of the Virginia dele?
gation in reference to the Battlefields
Parks bill, whieh the people of this
section are desirous of seeing
passed at an early day. Some facts
were gleaned by us which were not
hitherto known to the public. Con
greaaman Jenkins, a Westerner, we
believe, has fathered the bill at the
urgent request of some of the Virgin?
ians as well as of those Grand Army
men who have interested themselves
in the matter. This was done be?
cause considered the better policy,
and for the same reason it is to be
deprecated that it has gotten into
some of the Virginia papers that a
Representative from this State (Mr.
Jones) would be requested to call the
bill up in the House. Such is not
the intention of the friends of the
bill, and it will be equivalent to a
death-blow for any Virginian to push
it into prominence.At a conference of
the ex-Union advocates and the Vir?
ginia members a few days since the
suggestion that the Virginia delega?
tion go in a body to Speaker Hender?
son and nrge that the matter be given
r?cognition was decided unwise, and
it was concluded to let the subject be
presented to the Speaker from North?
ern advocates. If this is adhered to
?and it will be unless some unto?
ward and independent steps be taken
to trustrate it?the bill stands a good
show of recognition and success. The
Virginia Senators and Representa,
lives are unceasing in interest over
the subject ard are laboring zealous
ly to enlist sympathy and aid from
Northern and Western Representa?
tives. The hope of many Virginian*-,
as well as of hosts of people without
the State, are centred on this piece
of legislation. The merits of the
movement are too widely known to
warrant the use of space here for a
discussion of them.
An event has lately transpired in
this city which touches the matter of
Frederiokeburg and adjacent battle,
fields in a nature which may have es?
caped the notice of some. We refer
to the burial last week of Col.Edward
Hill, a member of the 15.h Michigan
Infantry, Fifth Army Corps, during
the war between the States. In this
choice, by the deceased and his wife,
of this last resting place for the mor?
tal remains of the distinguished
Northern soldier an unconscious
tribute was paid the once battle
acarred hills of old Frederioksburg,
and at the same time a demonstra?
tion was given of how near to the
hearts of even the Northern veterans
are the fields upon which the blood
of both blue and gray mingled in
honorable communion from sedition,,
strife. The incident has had prece?
dents, and will in all likelihood have
others to follow it. Reunions and
visitations on these plains follow
eaoh other faster than the calendar
ean toll out the years, but the acme
of laudation is reached when the
funeral bier of a one-time foe is
borne to the tomb on sacred South?
ern aoil by the hands of men whose
fathers met the now stricken clay in
mortal combat. With these scenes
so freah before our gaze we can
hardly reckon the strength of the
ties that bind the heart of a true son
of the North to the fields which he lost
and won at the haizard of hia life
These spots should be perpetuated,
--and we doubt not that enough pa?
triotism will be found across the line
to see that it is done.
It is stated by Senator Martin's
f riends.anent the mention of bis name
^connection with the Presidency four
years henoe, that even if not consid?
ered unwise the distinguished Vir.
ginian would not permit the use of
hia name. The same ia said for Sena?
tor Daniel in like connection. Wash?
ington statesmen of prominence,how?
ever, are seriously considering the
advisability of investing Senator
Martin with the Chairmanship of the
National Demoratio party, all agree?
ing that it would be a wise selection
A story is told of an old negro
who, upon wishing to see Horace
Qreely, was obliged to climb the
stairs of the tall Tribune building to
the "sky-parlor," where the great
editor had his quarters. On reaching
the room he breathlessly and laconi?
cally saluted the chief with: "Is Gawd
in." If he had lived to this day to
ace the sky-scrapers, among which
the Tribune building is but a pigmy,
he would have indeed thought it a
hard task to reach heaven.
