Denying its im pudence wo are forced to conclude tbat "our handsome Governor" considers bim ■elf nothing in the government of tho State, which we are far from denying. We are assured by the Philadelphia Age, through the columns of the Enquirer, that "Virginia is in the hands of Virginians." We deny it, so far as the Governor is con cerned; for he is a carpet-bagger of tho first water, and, until sometimo after his elec tion recognized with tho balance of North ern men by his Democratic friends, as a Radical carpet-bagger, at that. This statement is made by the Age, from a personal interview with Mr. Walker, who either doclined giving his real status, or preferred allowing the Age show its ignorance of his true history. We are inclined to the opinion that the Governor is ignorant of a great many facts, which it would be well enough for persons occupying his position to know. Prominent among them is, the real condi tion of tho coming crops. He informs tho Age, that "unless some unexpected reverse occurs, tho crops of all kinds, for the coming harvest, will be much heavier than those of any year since the war." Accounts from almost every section of the State agree, that the present prospects are very discouraging, and that, "uuless some reverse occurs the crops gen erally will be much poorer than they were last year." His ignorance of the roal facts may be owing to bis want of knowledgo of the past grain history of his adopted State His recent visit to his ho.ne, in New York should have taught him bettor than i recklessly assert that Virginia is in a pro parous condition. Certainly he does not imagine himse the whole State; for we fail to hoar any body else complaining of so much pros perity. If the Governor will undertak and succeed in proving it to tho people than whom none can be more interested, he will have done at least one good ac since his occupancy of tho mansion. W acknowledge that "Virginia is in the hand of Virginians" to a certain extent, and when wo have done this much, wa will also ac knowledge that the rule of carpet-bagger and scalawags was of short duration, (o the latter we are one,) —the more the pity for our State, so full of material to maki her great, aud yet controlled by minds in capable of comprehending her interests. Prosperous, indeed 1 where is it ? In tho rapid progress of education ? In tho increase of material wealth ? In the rapid building of railroads ? Io tho im provement of our lands ? In the building of factories ? In the welcome extendec foreign immigration ? In liberal politica sentiments ? Iv inviting Northern capital or, is it legislating against the adopted con stitution of tho State, fighting our educa tional system, graspiug for the wealth of others, warring against railroad enterprises, holding on to more laud than we cau work, making issues between commerce aod manufacturing, discouraging immigration, abusing political opinions, and ostracizing Phern men, unless they come surrender heir political faith ? Which of these ions have mado us so great and pros perous ? Let our Virginia Governor an swer. i*i The Enquirer's Progress.—A single ray of sunshine bids us hope for fair weather—however wo may bo disappoint ed in realizing it. Tho Enquirer has progressed so far as to treat us, this morning, to an able article favoring the adoption of the narrow in place of tho broad gauge railroad. Its Democracy has deserted it for once, and although the subject is so little identi fied with political questions, the well known determination of its party to al ways oppose progressive ideas, gives t ■ a hope that this able journal will some day, however distant, desert the fast sinking ship, and let her go to the bottom of tbe Narrow gauge roads are of recent ! thought, and incline us to the opinion that io a few years the laws of equilibrium will be so controlled by man, as to enable him to build railroads and run them suc cessfully upon one rail only i we are not entirely unprepared to see them flying through the air, without rail or wheel If you don't want to keep up with the improvements, daily astonishing the world, ust stand off, as Jackson's soldier prayed ho Almighty would do, and let us win the Jattles. Tbe next thing we hear of, will bo that the Enquirer is discarded as the organ of Democracy, because it said there was lo » a change in our railroads.

The present managers of the Enquirer seem determined to do injustice to the Me chanics' Trades Union whenever they mention the subject of its recent action. If they expect to gain friends by such action they are very much mistaken. In its issue this morning, it says: There have been no nominations made, a* yet, by any party. The Trades Union and tbe German* have simply put forward certain names for the consideration of tbe Conserva tives, tome of which will, of course, be ac cepted by the convention when it meets, or by tho primary meetings. I have nothing to say in regard to the action ofthe Germans ; but that portion of the above in roference to the Mechanics' Union is not true. That body did not ro- I commend, but nominated the men of their choice to be voted for at the coming elec tion. A report was presented to the Union by a committee that the names be simply recommended to the different ward roeet- I ings ofthe two parties as their choice ; but that portion was stricken out and failed to 'pass by a very large majority— so the ac tion of tho Union remaius as originally in- I tended, to nominate aud support, and not to recommend. We aro pledged to sup- I port our candidates no matter what par ty ticket they may be placed on, or no matter what party they may belong to. Tha action of the Union was regardless of party While we have no desire to die tate to others, wo have the right to say for whom we will vote. It is useless t appeal to the Enquirer for justice, and 1, therefore, ask yuu to insert this card, a Ii have always shown a disposition t the working classes of all colors ant parties, differ widely with you in politics, bn your friend and co-laborer in the ad icemeut of the interests of the workiui sses.
