MONDAY EVENING, JAN. 10, 1871.
SPIRIT OP THK MOKWIMO PRICKS. That venerable matron, the Enquirer, made her this morning in a new drcss*-ouo of the very latest fashion, too—a bonnet exactly like that wurn by the more youthful Dispatch. Wo disliko ti nee old ladies dress liko young gills. Fashion is well enough for youth ; but our grandmothers look much bolter in ths plain costume of half a century ago, than in tho short skirt, panier, and jockey hat and feather of tbo girl of the period. At the ago of sixty-four, the Enquirer thould have been prepared to lay aside such-l vanities and frivolities, and ought to have j rejected all modern innovations and changes. It should have stuck to its old head, at least so long as it remains steadfast In its old ideas. There should be some regard paid to tho eternal fitness of things ; and so young a head upon so old a body, is in violation of the rules of art, and reverses the order of nature, which puts old heads upon young bodies. The E.iquirer should have held on to its old I head. Wo do nut believe in such changes. The mostjsuccessful papers we have in this I world never permit any change in their stylo. They continue to wear the same dress from their birth to their death. The people would fail to recognize them, or would in all probability turn away from them in disgust wero they to change in the least particular. They have grown up with their subscribers and admirers from youth, and their features are familiar and have fixed themselves in the affections of their friends. To change these features, is to run a great risk. It wero better to chonge tho name, and como out as a new paper, with new features and new ideas. But the Enquirer, of course, had a right to adopt any style it saw fit,- —and it cer tainly looks much handsomer than iv the old-fashioned head gear. We trust that the new suit is an evidence of our neigh bor's financial success. But with its change of dress, we do not discover any change in tho political char acter of our coutetrporary. That is as ancient and Bourbonish as ever. It is joined to its idols, and in this case, at least, Sheridan Kntiwles' oft quoted idea, that change make 3 change, has not been rei-l- I ized. The snake may change its skin, o t not its nature. Train up a child in rue I devious ways of democracy and when he is old ho will not depart from them, —no matter how often ho may change his coat. I We had feared that the E.iquirer, like tho old National Intelligeacer, had outlived its usefulness and "fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf," and that its lagging longer upon the stago was superfluous; but its I youthful appoarauce this morning re assures us, and if it would only take up a few now and progressive ideas in keeping with tho age, and become a " young Enquirer" iv tho spirit as well as in the letter, we would siuccrcly wish it a long and prosperous life. There is nothing remarkable in tho cdi- I torial columns of our newly rigged con temporary—nothing new there. It has a good deal of complaint to make against the present State government.—which was of its own choosing. It says this govern ment was not organized for the purpose of representing the majority of the people,— which means, we suppose, that tho majori ty of the white people accepted Walker because they could not do any better at the time, —and not because they preferred him, or thought his election the best thing lor the State. It says: A government organized on a principle of yielding power to a minority is always a dangerous experiment, and we have many reasons to congratulate ourselves that so many of tbe dangers of such a government bare been avoided in tbe practical operations of the present Virginian system. If the Legislature shall take efficient in urea to restore power to a majority of tho p a ple, and postpone all action, that can be delayed, until the people can actually rule tbe State government, they will do tbe most that can be hoped trom tbem. Of all tbe powers ' that can rule in any country, 'he rule of a minority of the people is most o be dreaded.— That we have escaped so many of the ills lich tbe Black Crook arrangements might re imposed is a subject for much congratu :\ il of which amounts to just this : entlemen, you have done well in refus ing or failing to givo vigor to the liberal ; provisions of the constitution, in disre- I garding that instrument, and treating with contempt the rights of tho people. You have carried out successfully the game of sham which wo inaugurated in the choice of Walker as our candidate for Governor. You have triumphantly cheated the Ameri can nation, and you deserve praise—not so much for the things you have done, as for tbe things you have lei't undine." But how long dues the Enquirer think • the people will put up with such child's play ? The world is moving, and tho peo ple of Virginia must move with it. There can be no step backward ; and although the "Black Crook" constitution may now be a good subject for Uetnocratio contempt and ridicule, yet, if we call a convention three years hence, we shall find the people prepared fur still more liberal institutions In Virginia. You might as well give it an honest enforcement at once. This stub born opposition to it will do no good ; and those who have permitted it to sleep, will soon be sent to their political graves. The people have the ballot, and will maintain their rights. The Dispatch continues to discuss the necessity of a chauge iv our modes of in dustry and domestic ecouomy in Virginia and the South, which it says has -been rendered necessary by the great charge in our social relations. After setting forth the fact that in the days of slavery the slaves and thtir families were entirely de pendent upon their masters, aud hud no personal responsibility, as is now the case, I when each is left to take caro of himself and thoso dependent upon his lubor and exertions, it says: The attempt by the farmers (as we showed Saturday) to continue tbe old system ot culti vation —the expensive system—by maintaining negro families in cottages upon their farms, and superintending their now paid industry in the old way, bas signally failed. liecau.-e it i:i not consistent with the individual independence and individual responsibility which entire freedom establishes. The family must take care of itself. Its obligation in'do so accom panies its freedom to do so. This obligation cannot be removed, and the farmer who under takes to remove it by taking upon hissheulders the burthen of negro families under tbe ex-' pectation that ho will be compensated by the results of their industry, will be disappointed. With tbe new dispensation there must be that individual responsibility which requires every family to do the same. The government to give protection and security to all. It is the most difficult thing in the world to rrnike cither the former slave or the former owner comprohend tho changed re lations they bear to one another and to so ciety; and wo doubt, ns long as i:. slaves and old masters live and rem- tl ■ay very rapid progress in uuteaching tl.« teachings of their early life. \V« mui-t j wait patieutly until tho rising generation, i which know nothing about slavery, take 0 ir placo Tuen the white man will no longer think of treating the black as ho was wont to use him when he waa a chattel ; while the black man will be independent, aud feel the responsibility of his position. The children of both races that are now grow ing up will have no dark past of slavery at their back, and we will have to wait patiently for them to take our places beforo the n«w dispensation can be fully inaugurated. Old prejudices, old idt.is, old habits, old feelings of mutual de pendence, and that old lack of indepen dence, will prevail until the generation which knew nothing 'of slavery, com ' actively upon the stage of life fill 'he positions vacated by old master and old slave. Tho Dispatch goes on to show that it Is the policy of our farmers to select a small farm from the best of their land, and that after selling tho rest, to enable them to pay their debts and stock and enrich what land they retain, they must put their own hands to the plough, or, at least, no more hired hauds than can bo employed with profit—and closes as follows: Then it would be well for society to afford every facility for the rapid consummation of i lie social revolution which cannot be averted— nay, which now !| indiepensab'e to the restora tion of contentment and thrift in the land. Every tub must stand upon its own bottom. Every man must take care of himself. Every tiller of the soil must now improve bis land, and live widely and economically. There is no way now outiido of well-regulated and sagacious industry to increase wealth and establish pecuniary independence. Concen trate industry — wisely employ it—institute rigid economy—permit no idle hands to linger about the field—away with the drones—and a few years will show us a blooming apd happy The Dispatch has also an article on the subject of a hotel to replace the loss of the Spotswood. It says that "for "Main street and the active business part of Kichmoud, a new hotel should now be built," for it believes "we shall need that and more when our Western connections -are com pleted." By all means let a palatial hotel iseon the ruins of the Spotswood, aud let us call it the Spotswood. No place so uroper, aud no name so popular. The Whig defends Judge Cochran, ol Augusta, from the recent newspaper as snul»» that have been mado upon him, — rowing out of his alleged aspirations for ne Senatorial robes which now grace the iirm of the Hon. J. \V. Johnston. The Vhig says all this bobbery has been kicked up merely because Judge Cochran was a riend of consolidation, —and as he is a cry popular and influential man, his ene nies have undertaken to kill him off, by misrepresenting him as courting favor with ie liepublican minority, in hopes of se lis election to the Senate.
