OLD SCHOOL VlRQIlIANf.
Who does not remember boar delightful the
sensation in boyhood, when, after wandering
inrougn uusly Belds or upon the rocky shores
of a stream, exposed to a meridian sua In mid
summer, suddenly, under the shadow or some
great rock, a cool cave. Inviting rest, was un
expectedly discovered !
Wllh similar ftclings 1 always enter a library
lu a large city. The other day, while obliged
to be at the Capitol on business harassing and
depressing, I waa much refreshed by turning off
irom ine crowd of lobby workers, gallery
slarers, and political demagogues, Into Ihe cool
and thady alcoves or the library or Congress
The quletnets tbatje!goa..J(Wna
widest contrast to the loud-talking and tobacco
spitting maas who are perpetually shuffling over
the marble tiles of the rotunda, and renders It
n real house of refuge lo those who grow weary
of the glare of Washington life.
While there, I enjoyed a historical recreation.
I undertook to discover the estimate which Im
partial observers bad placed on Virginians be
fore the American Revolution, and I transcribe
some Interesltog and ancient testimonies:
The first is (he estimate or De Vrles, the old
Dutch navigator, who silled up Ihe broad Del
aware, acd tarried at Manhattan, and visited
Ihe old Dutch redoubt, known as the House of
Hope, a whole generation before Ponn landed
The last time the honest old Dutchman sailed
bis rkipper In the neighborhood of what is now
Fortress Monroe, was In the days when Sir
William Betkley was Governor.
SpcaklDg of the settlers In and around James
town, be says :
"The English there are very hoiyibibfa, but
they are not proper persons to trade with. You
must look out when you trade with them,
Peter is always by Paul, or you will be stuck
In the tail; for If they can deoelve anyone, they
account It, among themselves, a Roman action.
Tber say, In their language, ' He played him
kii &UKI1BU iricit, ana men iney nave tnem
selves well esteemed.'"
Aristocracy, originally based on trickery,
naturally eulmtcatea and expires with Floyd
and other descendants of Ihe first families.
But, as tome one may say, this Is but the
opinion f a coarse sailor, wo proceed with the
bontst testimonies of educated and polished
Sir Jotiah Child, iu a " Discourse Concerning
Plantations," published in 1C92, says:
"Virginia and Barbadoes were first peopled
by a sort or looae, vagrant people, vicious, and
destitute ofmcsns tullve at home, being olther
unfit for labor, or such aa oould find none to
employ themselves about, or bad ao misbehaved
tbemeelvea by thieving or other debauchery
that none would" rt'tthem on work, which mer
chant and masters of ablps, by their agentt,
gathered up about the streets of London anil
other p'aces; and these, I say, were suoh as,
had there been no English foreign plantations
in the world, could neveri probably, have Ih ed
at homo tu do aervlco ror tholr country, but
mut bave como tu tie hanged or starved, or
died untimely nf some of those miserable dis
eases that proceed from want and vice."
Seventy five years later, In 1739, the Rev.
Dr. Burnaby, subsequently known aa tho Arch
deacon or Leicester and Vicar or Greenwich,
He thus describes the Inhabitants: " From
wbat haa been aiid of this colony, it will not
be difficult to form an idea of Ihe character of
lbs Inhabitant. They are Indolent, easy, und
good natured, extremely fond or society, and
much given to convivial pleasures. Tbtlr au
thority over their slaves renders them vain
and Imperious, and entire slramjtrs to that ele
gance of sentimer.t which is so peculiarly char
acteristic ot refined and polished natures,
Their Ignorance of mankind and ot learning
txposes them to many errors and prejudices,
especially In regard to Indians and negroes,
whom tbey icarcely consider of the human
species, ao that It is almost impossible in cases
of violence or even murder committed upon
these unhappy people by many or the planters,
to havo tho delinquents brought to justice.
The display or a character thus cons Ituted
will naturally be In acts or extravagance, and
a disregard of economy. It Is not extraordi
nary, therefoto, that tho Virginians outrun (heir.
No comment) on this testimony is necessary,
but It will always be a rebuke to that class of
people who were once so fond of talking about
old Virginia chivalry, refinement, and gentle
men, to the disparagement of those educated
lu the classic halls or Massachusetts and Con
SURGEON LCTIIKR V. BBLL.
At Ihe assembling ol the general court mar
tial ror Hooker's Division, on the Lower Poto
mac, the 12th day or February, 18G2, the death
of Surgeon Luther V. Bell, Medical Director of
the Division, having been announced. Ihe fol
lowing resolutions were passed :
Jifsolocd, That In our Intercourse with the
deoeaaed, we have learned to value him highly
aa a aurgeon, and to love and esteem him as an
officer and a gentleman.
Resolved, That being sensible or the great
loss to the publio service and the community
In which he was so distinguished, we sincerely
mourn his death and sympathize with those at
home, who, In his family and In the wide circle
of his friends, must reel most deeply their be
roavement. Resolved. That we adjourn to-dav at auch an
hour aa to enable the members nf the oonrt tn
bo present at the obsequies, and pay the laBt
