The Greenbrier / ,./e/-ende>it makes a telling point
against I.ocofocoDm on a subject that should never have
become a party issue. We all know, it *aya, how scru

arc spoken of. Our soil upon which we tread every dai,
can receive no attention leet the Constitution be violated.

io conscience quiet, and allow Democratic theory full ex

The la*t year’s receipts of cotinu in Kngland from In
dia were, we believe the l*rce*t which have ever tieeu
reported in ant one year The quantity was nearly equal
to one-fourth of that which w.i- received from the Knifed
.-'tatcs, but the value wa- only about one eighth of that
which came from the State*. This proves that the .ave
nge price of India cotton is but little more than one-half
that of American cotton When it is considered that
this inferior cotton cost-, l>nih for inland and ocean
transportation, for all the great distance it ha« to be mo
ved as lunch as it would if it were twice as valuable,
we cm ?ee the difficulty under which the English labor
in substituting it for American, even if the supply can be
largely increased It seems prohable that it can onlv be
used to mix wiib tlie better qualities of American cot
ton, with certain limits. In competing with inferior
qualities of America cotton, it has tbe disadvantage of
being at a much greater distance from the consumer.
An Empty I?ox.
An empty box is ordinarily a useless piece of furniture.
I .ike an empty pur-e, or many other things, of value
when rightly appropriated, that is, well filled with some
p.-ecions valuable, it beconw useless and hateful to look
at when its rich treasure is exhausted and its hideous
vacuity remains only to remind us of the good things it
once contaiued. But it is a great cou-olatiou in this
world to have a friend of ability pledged to fill up vour
uox as soon as it ii empty, aud that ad infinitum. Such
i- oar happy condition, end hence we felt no concern
when, yesterday, wc looked at our tobacco box ami found

CORN-FIELD PEAR
I know these Virginians pretty well. Thev are the
greatest people on the face of the’ earth, lu fact, they
•re the onlx (suiple. There was a time when, in mv deep
benightnu tit ntij in mv unloyalty to my ever dear old
mother. Virginia, I believed that Englishmen and Rus
sians were people, buch, however, is not the case |
am wiser now, and kuow that England is a country la
boring under drv-rol; it is, as uo Virginians say of a
tree, "doled,'' and Englishmen are hut the fungoid re
mains of what was once a people. It is not with much
pleasure that I make lliia an deniable statement, for we
ot Virginia sprang from British loins. In like manner,
the tloddess of Wisdom and of War sprang trom that
broken down old rake and thunderer, .love. Minerva
came from a |iain in Jupiter's bead, and Virginia came
trom a |>ain, lor the want ot sense, in the head of Hull.
As for the Hit‘*ian*, they own slaves, and hence they a|n>
the manners of Virginian*. Hut their slaves are whit.-,
aud until they Irani how to say “thar," aud to call a cu
cumber ••curcumlier," they cannot, in mv opinion, lay
any claim whatever to the honor ot tiring called people.
In this eonneetion, it is wrll to stale, for the benefit of
political economists, that the apparently human beings
of the Hrittsil Isles would to tins ilay'have remained
what they once were, and even now seem to In*—a peo
ple— but for the Act of Kmanci|i*tion. There can
not l»e a people without niggers, aud niggers are
not nigger* unless I her are slave*. A tree nigger
is a monstrosity, a Uounyhjrm, a hand without mus
cles, an amputated leg, a gisas eye-ball, and a shin
plaster—nneitrrent at that. In a word, he is a tender
w ithout any locomotive ; fuel—coals, for example—with
out any machinery. A nigger without a master L» Latent
power off the track. Put him on by himself, you esn
get him along only by pushing, so constant and serere
that it costs more than it ,-omr* to. Tackle him to an
engine in the shape of a while man, aud the loug train
laden with industrial product* goes it with a rush, the
locomotive display* itself to advantage, aud the Mack
tender follows and keeps close up behind, in a blaze of
dtt*t and glory.
Home miles—pity the distance is not greater* to the
Northward and Eastward of Virginia, there are, as it
were, people. Hut they are onlv Yankee*. From retreat
f.l clo«c an.l careiul pen-nnal inspection of great num
ber- of them, I am pit-pared to sax that almost anv man
not torn an.l raised in Virginia would mistake them lor

with the lineaarnU, the member* and the garb of hu
manity, thev succeeded for many rear* iu palming them

to an incredible |iitch. Yankee*, it i* «aid, hut how can
1 I relieve it '— land-re* were employed to iu-truct the im
mortal mind of the south of Virginia. Oh* astounding'
But the statements neither of hi torv nor tradition can
often l»« tru-led. and the above, it must ho admitted, is
preposterous. Why, 1 would respectfullv a«k, do we
never meet with a Virginian, young or old, or middle
aged, who sav* “ heaowr” for "how," “ doo" for '• dew,”
•'dutt’i' for ’ dou t,' and such like execrable jargonisms *
I answer, because such do not exist in the limits of the
Great Commonwealth, or it they do, dare not give vocal
• -r other token of Ya:-k.-e instruction, lest siuh.enlv they
l>e knocked down by the earliest sapling which the Vir
ginian who hear.- them can wrench front our blessed soil.
A dis-onting Englishman, wrenched bv tho violence of

to suh.-ist upon the marrowless insipidity of codfish and
pumpkins, clams and onioc.s, the Yankee Li not in aur

moil-It adopted
AVW,-.-i/, That the extraordinary and alarming . ondi
tion ot political affairs in this Commonwealth demands a
thorough change in the Administration of the State flo
t eminent.
A’/■«/,-«/, That the call i* imperative upon all tho-c
who value or desire a prudent and honed Administration
of the State to exert their best energies to effect the
needed change.
AV«.>/r».f, That this Committee heartily recommends
' to the support of their fellow-citizens the list of eandi
dates nominated for State officers, by the Convention
held at Fancuil llall, in the city' of llo-t n, on the Istlt
of Ortoher, nil.
tlruJrrA, That the principles of the Whig parly, by
whatever name its members ntay he called, are indes
1 trnetilile and permanent,that the late ineffleiet t condition
| III the parti h vs been owing to the abandonment of its
h.t«is liy many of its tncinhrni, for new opinion* and po
I litleal associations, which have tended neither tn the tn
j torest, nor the honor of the Commonwealth—that the
cud of sneli abandonment i- now manifest in the declen
| * on of |iolitiral and moral integrity—and that the con
dition or the times earnestly ini lies honorable and ra
tion.nl men, who once acted with ns, to return to the al
ii tnres of tlie put, and to unite with it* in a strenuous
effort to restore the State to it* former distinguished and
reputable rank aiming the sovereignties of the Union.

well-disposed |ienp|e of the State, who, lor various rea
sons, have refrained from voting for several vears past,
to resume the discharge of those duties incumbent upon
every intelligent and responsible citizen «f a free State,
when his action can be of service to the common cause_
that, in our judgment, the time for doing so Is at hand,
and that we trust no ordinary obstacle wdl prevent the
expression of their opinions at the polls.
Hinnh-t.l, That these resolution*, signed by otir Chair
man and Secretary, be forwarded for publication to the
various newspapers of the Suite, and he otherwise pub
lished a» mav tic deemed espedlent.
ffogaintr Minu ar nv thk Ixntaxa.—The latest Salt
false mail firings the details of soother Indian massacre
which occurred twenty-five miles west of Fort Hall, on
l.ander’s Cut off on the night of the 2d of September
on a party constating of sit men, three women and ter!
children, part from Michigan, and part from linchanan
countr, Iowa. The massacre must hare lieen a most hor
rible one. The emigrants were surrounded just as they
were about camping, and shot down before they had
time for defence. Some who escaped fell in soon after
» ith a company of dragoons under command of blent
IJfingston, who sent a detachment to the aeene of the
maseacie, who found the dead bodici of live pcr*ou< on
the ground, out of the eight that were missing The
dead were horribly mangled and scalped. Their ani*al
were taken and their wagon* plundered according to the
usual mode of Indian spoliation The name* of the mur
dered are Fdward Miltimore, Hen , James Miltimore, Jr ,
Witiatn Miltimore, Mary F.llen Miltimore. and Myron
f line. Mis.log, Mr*. Miltimore anil child, three months
o’ll, and Albert Miltimore Feraped, Milton J. Harring
ton, wife and child, A Hill, wife and child, (Jeo. Alonzo,
Nelson Miltimore. Frank Ifnbbard, Nathan Tilns, ami
Wrn M*r»h. After the Indians had completed their
work Of murder and plunder with the Miltimore parly,
they pressed ahead and attacked the remainder of the
train. Here they met a warm reception, and were kept
at bay by the emigrants until darkness dosed upon the
scene,whrn the as ailed, finding further rrwisfanre futile,
Ml tde their escape, leaving the Indiana posatasor* of their
•fork and goods. Thev travelled on I twit two day* with
out anr thing to cat, ami finally re iched a military post.
ff'tnnuxn HiK tnr. -A catastrophe of this description
took place yesterday motning about III o'clock, on New
York avrnue, between ftlh and l<tth street., whereby a
rnnng man of about twenty year* of age, named (winis
Jones, lost Ids life. It appears that yuting .lone* ha* for
more than a yr*r filled the clerkship in the band Office
left vacant by bis father's decease the salary of wldrh
paid fo hi* widowed mother for the aupport of her
family, conais tint; of seven children. Mm. Jonea allowed
1 her son ona-fourth of the salary fur his own ms, an ar
rangement with whtrh he was dissatisfied and wanted one
half Not Judging this desirable, Mrs. Junes had reason
ed with her sun nn iha subject, anti when he catne down
stairs ya-tarday morning, perceiving him troubled, ahe
fhr*w Ires arm* slfc. tinuately round his neck and kissed
him. In a short time after this young Jonea went up
I atairs, and, returning to the sitting room, called hie moth
r er's attention and then pul a loaded Deringer pistol to hi*
1 fit-ehead,which exploded and carried it* contents through
l the frontal hone Into tire Interior of the head, the ball
« trvs-ing through the brain and lodging within the rran
itim. ('enableralde doubt l* entertained as to the pnr
, pose of Jones, many supposing that the explosion of the
s pistol in the position he had It at the moment It went uf|
s wa* not his real intent, and that «t the worse be q .ly
1 wished to Mmlfbte hi* mother to bring her to com ill
