Our attention has been called to this paragraph in the Ditpatch of last Satur day: We did the Journal injustice. It did not complain of any wrong to General Thomas, except that of the introduction ot hia name by Mr. Maaaey, a wagon-maiter in the late Con federate army 1 Tho Journal rather touched ap Masaey and the negroes. Tbe statement that we touched up Mr Massey or anybody else, or even mentioned his name, is incorrect; but is entirely in keeping with tho reckless habit that paper has of making unfounded assortions. We had no fault to find with Senator Massey. He acted from the best and most patriotic motives, and. although we would not have Kfor an appropriation to purchase a it of GeUtiral Thomas, that is no why we should censure Mr. Massey for doing what he honestly thought a pa triotic duty ; and it was a duty, too—in exposing tho hypocrisy of those who were elected as "True Republicans," and who recently, at Washington, protended to be par excellence the loyal men of Virginia. With the allegation that Mr. Massey was a quarter-master in the Confederate army, we have nothing to do. Wo care not what he has been. It is enough for us to know that he is a sound Republican and true American now. We know many good members of the church who were at one time great sinners. i — ii> S Tai Stati Journal, "the official paper for the government," as ia plicarded in heavy type at the bead of its first column, hai gone bick on the government, (to use a vulgar phrase,) if, indeed, the policy of President Grant ii the policy o! the government. It I devoid a column of editorial in a recent issue t» tbe amnesty question, and advocates general amnesty ably and earnestly, as an honest jour nal ahould—only making it a little too pro minent that the good of the party, and not of I the country, ia the most pressing reaaon for I action by this Coogreaa. We wish its voice I were potent in high pltcea, 10 that the great injustice of continued disabilities might be done away with at once; but thia is not the cane. The President ii fully committed in favor ol proaeription, and a majority ■ f the Forty-Hrat Congreaa ia with him, while even in thia State the Journal ia in a woeful minori ty—Porter having at hia call almoat the whole of the rank and and file of the party. However, we are glad to ace all that ia re apectable about Radicalism in tho State take such decided ground in favor of what ia juat and right, and none the leas that in doing ao it throwa itself boldly, not only against the ad ministration, but against the bulk of the party at home.— Charlottetviil* Chronicle. We are in favor of unreserved amnesty— a full pardon to all; and in this we aro not iv such a "woeful minority" in our party either. It was adopted as a plank in the Republican platform at the last Convention ' held, and Mr. Porter and his frionds agreed to it. Then conciliation was declared to f be the policy of tho party. Wehavaseeu - nothing from President Grant to indicate [ that he does not agree with us that am nesty is the best policy, both for the good . of the country and the success of the party ; andjwe flatter ourselves that the voice of the Journal is still potent iv high places, as Nthe voice of truth must ever be potent in all places. While we have thrown our selves boldly into the breach upon this ' question, we do not believe we occupy a position antagonistic lo either the Presl e dent or the majority of our party. We 1 have always urged the fullest amnesty and have never to our knowledge lost the ' confidence of either ; but if we have lost or should lose it on this account, we can not help it; for we would rather fail ia good cause than succeed in a bad one. in The Suffolk Sun says ; "We under stand that a petition has been recently forwarded to Hon. James H. Piatt, mem ber of Congress from this district, signed by a number of Northern men who hay settled among us, praying that he would use his influence in favor of a general am nesty, so that better feeling may exist be tween the Northern and Southern people Among those whose names have been ap pended we heard of Dumville, Lord Mc ' Allister, Stout, Wilson, Pinette, Cart wright, Cowhart, Fletcher, Taylor, Art man and Smeed. We further learn that every Northern man living in the county would sign such a petition if presented to » The St. Louis Democrat says It Is pro per to explain the election of Blair, how " effected, and what it moans. We beg|the Democrat not to explain it. It is better such an event should remain inexplicable. We know what it means. It means tha Republicans in Missouri have got into a quarrel, and, as in all such quarrels within a party, slaughtering is done with great gusto, and the very worst men reap the benefit of the quarrel. The result is dis graceful to all concerned, except the Con federate allies of the Schuri-Brown Repub licans, and the less said about it the better. Beauregard. — Notwithstanding the newspapers have sent this distinguished ex-Confederate to Europe, to fight the bat tles of La Belle France, we see by the pa pers of that city, he is still in New Or leans. His name is attached to a call for a complimentary benefit to Lewis Baker, • late managor of the Varieties, which was burnt down. — ■ Let Him Alone.—The Richmond cor ~" respondent of the Petersburg Courier, in his letter of Saturday, says: Mr. Guy (who didn't want to go to the E House of Delegates) is taking steps to secure himself agaiust a re-election. — Among there steps is a bill offered by him to-day to amend the charter of this city, the chief object of which is to continue the present City Council in authority one year longer than they can hold on under the law as it exists. Nothing can possibly be more unpopular here, especially just now. The Louisville Courier-Journal, in the following paragraph, makes an open con fession of the real difference between th two great political parties of the day.

To the Editor of the Stale Journal: I have picked up the following political curiosity, said to have been put in circula tion by "Aunt Joe's" tea-party in the south east corner of the Custam-House. Our Republicu.ii friends residing in Rich mond and its viciulty, always supposed that this venerable spinster aud her satel lites confined the limits of their "iniitua admiraiion society" to the Cu-tom-Hous officers and their "going man," Mr. Porter It seems, however, that our party here abouts is mistaken, for no "pent-up Utic contracts" her skirts, and she spreads her self l liu.-ly : CIRCL'tAR.

Well, that is "rich, rare and racy," ai.d its impudence is only equalled by the ignorance aud stupidity displayed in its "get op." Our "Aunt. Joe" thrjws herself around the Legislature and gathers the members thereof to her tea-party 1 Verily, the Republican party has come to a fine pass, if its leading members can Ihe talked to in this way by a spi osier, a cheat aud a demagogue ; and the Republi can members of the Legislature unques tionably feel highly complimented by this "special order No.'l" from Aunty's head quarters. A "Congressional Committee" that has done so much for the parly should have i the marked attention and obedicnct of the Hepublicaus of our section at country. That "Committee" made our State success ful (in a horn) in 1869, and in our last election sacrificed the party in Riclmioud 10 elect Porter. It has succeeded in di viding and distracting our Republican I fneutis, aud tbe party is "growing smaller by degrees and beautifully less" under tie care ami auspices of "Aunt Joe" and her | admiring beau, Mr. Porter.

John P. Lewis, j Halifax Ciuntv, Va , Jan. 20, 1871 | To the Editor of the State Journal : What egiegious mistakes We sometimes make about the character of our fellow beings,—especially when those fellow be ings are public men, and belonging to dif ferent political organizations from our own. Into how many and foolish errors of opinion do the party journals of the day lead their credulous aud unquestioning readers. For instance, a man becomes a Republican, and, although he may be able to point to a life-long devotion to her in terests, tho papers, at once, pronounce him false to Virginia, and au unthinking or cruelly prejudiced people shout "ameu." I have been led to these aemarks by what I have lately read in the Conservative newspapers regarding the Hon. John f. Lewis. Why, Iknow the man, as I tell my Conservative neighbors, and there is not a truer man on earth than John P. Lewis. His brave championship of what I be believes to be the right, whatever its present odium, and his tried and perfect loyality to Virginia, are acknowledged by I all who really know him. "But how can 1 he be true to Virginia, after having so be trayed her ?" How has he betrayed her 1 Well, by becoming a Republican 1" a, ha I You may yet learn that the old tate will be a thousand fold happier and ore prosperous under a Republican I eadersbip, than Bhe ever was under Demo- I atic rule. " But be decerned us." How 1 By turning Republican after he was ected." Not so. He was a Republican I lefora you had a Conservative party ; you | oted for him as an avowed Republican on I our ticket for Lieutenant Governor ; he I as elected to the Senate as a Republican, nd tf any body was deceived —toAi'cA / c oubt — you deceived him. This charge of I ( eception has often been made, but every I ne knows tbat Walker and Lewis ran aa I epublicans—that thire was no Couserva tve party in the field, and that when Valker became, as he has, C mservative, , 080 F. Lewis remained what he was, a epublicau. You voted for him thinking t iat he would turn traitor to his own >art,y, —he did not, — and sj, aud only so, I te deceived you. "But, being a Republican, he is neces sarily untrue to Virginia" Ah I now I iat slavery is abolished, negro suffrage a zed fact and a dead party issue, aud ectssion a bitter thought that makes v. -rind our teeth at Democracy whenever we think of it, the Republican party has othing in it antagonistic to Virginia's ighest and best good. And I tell you, my friend—my Conservative-Democratic riend—it wont do to call a man false to his State because he wout join the Democratic arty I 'John F. Lewis was rai.-ed au Old iine Whig—was taught to hate Deino racy; and there are many 0 ! d Line Whigs in this State, who, remembering the past aud all its woes, would, like Lewis, I oin the Republican party iv preference to )emocracy. When a man calls John F. Lewis false to Virginia, he forgets that that brave Virginian, wifh an ancestry which the vainest F. F. V. might well be proud of, and witti a record of fearless loy alty, can leply, like the old Scotch chief aiu, "Ipress my heel upon my native heath I My name is McGregor t" Johu F. Lewis is au honest, fearless man. It is true be has not the oratorical i avers of such men as Sumner and Trurn tull; but he has just as fine natural abili ies as mai>y who are ambitious to fill his ilace, and a great deal more honesty to >ack it. Integrity and incorruptible loy alty are more needed now by tbe Southeru States than fine speeches and parliamentary tact. Congress will be more apt to re spect tho former than to listen to the lat ter. Northern Senators may be wan by the pursuasions of au undoubted hdnesly of purpose, but they will not surrender to either equality or superiority in debate. Congress, at present certainly, is cot an appropriate arena for the exhibition (of Southern oratory. A Fbuhd.

The Prnislana Decline to Grant It. A TRUCE OFFERED THE FRENCH TO COLLEOT TnElll WOUNDED AND BURY THE DEAD. Reported Etcluiivety for the State Journal. London, January 23 —An official dia patch from Versa'lli-s, containing informa tion with reference to the sortie made froiiiMount Vnleiien 'in Thursday last,says about 40 French battalions were engaged, besides a considerable force of artillery. The whole movement was faintly ex ecuted, and. in a manner that indicated a great degree of enervation and a lack of that vigorous and martial spirit which characterized most of the previous soi'ti.M of the besieged. A heavy aitillery fire fr'm the guns of Fort Mount Valeneu offered protection aud iavo additionil advanti);es to the Freuch tro >ps for suci'ss in tleir attempt, but, notwithstanding the propitimsness of the movement and the heavy obstacles wh>cn were thus opposed toany ressranee which the enemy might off-r, or did offer, ■he French troops were totally repulsed after a brief and exceedingly sr-vr.re «u --rfanemt'nt. The loss sustained by the Preach in this acli >ri was considerable— ovr-r SGO unwoundel prisouers fell into the) nands of tin: Piussians, besides several jiieces of ordinance The Prussian tro>p-< suffered but little iv the eus> itfement, heiug will protected from the attack aud the fi <■ fiom Mount Va'erien by the ixce lent potion of their works, trie guns of Which no id to the enemy's fire in a rapid and effective man ner throughout the action. This sortie was direcied chiefly again.t the German positions at Vahneady, Una trogiM and i»i Cloud, the primary and chief oh] ct • ■ ii n to Sever 'he commUDica usmi of iio- German forces, at these pojt.is with the main Herman army at V isaille.-. On Friday, toe day succeeding the soy ■ie, a courier was received through tbe German hue witli a message frota General Trochu to headquarters at Versatile! Tl i ::,ess,i,ie proved to be a proposal by Tro cnu for an armistice. The entire propo sition, however, was couched in such terms as were considered altogether ineli jible by the Prussian King, and a refusal was transmitted accordingly It is undeisto id, h .w«v- r, tl a f authority has beau granted to the advanc-d posts of tlm Prussian army to graut a local trtue, ii' desired by the enemy, for the purpose of allowing them an opportunity of collect ing their wounded and disposing of their dead. Another Sortie Erpectett—lnsubordi nation Among l lie French Troops. London, Jan. 23.—Versailles advices Stat* that owiutr to the heavy fog wbicli prevailed ou Friday military operation* were much delayed. The enemy's guns were entirely iuactive during the day. A massing movement of the Freuch troops was observable near Fort Mont, Va leren at a later part of the day. From general indications in that.vicinity, another Bonie is considered imminent. * The piisoners captured in the recent sortie, also state that au attack will prob ably be made at an early date. They state that insubordination has not been uiifreciuently seen of late iv the ranks of the National Guard; that the men evinco a stroug disposition to fight, evidently considering the bombardment insurmount able aad the struggle a hopeless one. A rumor obtaius iv German quarter-i that General Trochu has been severely wounded, but what truth is attached to the report is not knowu. The 2d German army corps have left Verseiiles eu route for Dijotj. They aro destined to reinforce the command of Gen. Yon Werder, aud assist him in driving Bourbaki and his command across the frontier into Switzerland. Miscellaneous.
