My last brought us through liiehniond, which place our parly left about eight o'clock Friday morning in a special train for Staunton and White Sulphur Springs. The Chesapeake and Ohio, on which we itovv ride, is a grand monument to Virginia industry. Mountains have been built and tunnels pierced through solid rock, until Ibis great railway, which crosses the Blue Ridge and Alleghany, rivals tbe great Pacific railroads of tbe West, About fifty miles north of Richmond are situated valuable iron and copper mines, known as the Vic toria. Two car loads a day are shipped for New York on the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, and in time, ibis valuable ore will be demanded in largo quantities. Running through the State northeast and southwest, and flipping obliquely to the cast, are rock formations, in which is Virginia gold as well as other valuable ores. Numerous mines dieis miller Sheridan had a severe brash with Wade Hampton. Majors Kuapp, and Robinson and others will recollect vividly the severe engagement at this point. Sheridan came up from Hanover upon a raid anil was driven back. On for a few miles and near Charlottesville is -lefforson's Mon licello an unpretending brick building upon a very high hill, looking desolate from agi and distance. Charlottesville is well know to our boys in blue who were with .Slier dan, and it and the country about is a charming a farming country as any in th world. 11 is called by English travelers th l.i.mbardy of the West. The long tunnels and first ones throug and we find ourselves in the Shcnandoa valley.

Shields, John Graeme, Jr., ami their .ity local, who met us at Went t'oint, did lor lhe sixty editorial representatives all that it Has possible for men to do. They furnished us with copies and reports of all our proceedings, and kept a reporter with us all through our journeyings. The Whin is independent, and one of the most flourishing concerns .South. X complete jobbing equipment is about to be added, An impromptu reception by tho Colonel— the only hospitable and graceful reception given us in that city—w as appreciated, and the Whig will long in- remembered with warm regard. The Stale Journal, Radical, is presided over by gentlemen, and one of its editors, John \V. Wolf/,, Ksq., entertained several of our company, who tlid not wish to ac cept any forced caravan reception, in a most agreeable manner. "On which sitle of a lady equestrian should her escort ride, and why?'' is the question that came to me from a pleasant Neighborhood Club" in one of mir so burban towns, which is but little less, in fact, than an extension of Fifth avenue into the hills of Westchester. The cavalier, to be in the right, should be on the left. If on the right, he is in the wrong. In other words, the gentleman should always be at the lady's left hand, having her on his right. I use the word al ways in its full force, applying it to all countries, whatever the local law of the road (excepting only momentary exigencies), and to both styles' of rifling, whether the barbarous, awkward and dangerous side way style for which we are said to be in debted to Ann of Bohemia, or the casj'and natural mode practiced by the wife anil daughters of the Turkish pacha, the Tartar chief, the South American (.audio, or the North American Comanche, ami, within a few years, by tbe wife of a President of I'eru anil other ladies of Lima. And now for the why. To meet this branch of the question, let us start from first principles. Until the fashion changes—and it is likely to last some years longer—man's right hand is the handiest hand. It maybe called his working-hand, and tlie left his holding-hand, on saddle-duty. On horse back, then the left becomes the bridle-arm, while the right is free for "detached ser vice" with lasso, lance, sabre, or riding whip. The theory of horsemanship holds that in rifling, and especially in riding with a lady, the man is master of his steed, and, under all ordinary circumstances, can guide and control him with his bridle-hand alone, leaving his right arm free for any service that may require it. It also assumes that be rifles, not merely to accompany the lady, but to protect and assist her in an iinmer genoy. And this assumption is an admis sion not only of his superior mastership of his horse anil greater .strength, but of his more natural, anil, therefore, safer seat in tbe saddle. His duty, then, being to guard and to aid the lady with his best aim, where should the horseman be placed to render the most efficient service ? Unquestionably at tlie lady's left hand, where she is witliin tlie readiest anil most effective reach of bis right. Riding in that position, bo can read ily place bis hand on her bridle-rein, and aid m controlling her horse without mter fering with the management of his own. He can converse with her most comfortably for herself, as she can, from her position in the saddle, easily turn her bead to her left, while turning it 'to her right would be awk ward and irksome. On her left he protects her riding-skirt from the contact of passing vehicles, to which, unilor our law of the road, she is exposed if he rides on her right; and ho also prevents her skirt from flying to the wind. At her left he is in the best position to pre vent her falling from her horse, whether from tbe horse's or from the turning of her saddle through "bolting" or "shying," one against tbe other, slackened or breaking girths, as, with her sideway scat and the pressure of her feet on the stirrup, her sad dle is very much more likely to turn to the left—toward him—than to the right. Tins turning of the saddle, through carelessness of grooms, or the slackening of girths after a horse has been ridden awhile, is by no means infrequent, but, in my own expe rience, 1 have never known an instance of its turning to tbe right. Again, riding at the lady's left, her es cort is in the only proper place to render effective aid in case of a fractious or runa way horse, cither by a powerful hold on her bridle-rein, or, in tho last emoigency, by throwing his strong arm around her ami lifting her irom her saddle, This last feat is almost, if not absolute ly impossible while riding at the lady's right. To say nothing of having to use, in such an attempt, the comparatively weak and awkward left arm, the lady's "person and long skirt would have to be drawn,over and across the side-saddle and the back of her horse. On the other hand, front her left, with the strong right arm to support her, she has only to clear her right leg from the saddle horn, drop her reins, and— lifted easily from her seat—her horse passes on from under her. I have not only practiced tbis in teach ing a young lady to ride, but I have seen it handsomely done in actual runaway expe rience on the road. The lady's horse ran, her saddle turned—to the left, of course— ami the pursuing cavalier galloped up on that side, threw his right arm around her, cleared her from the horse, ami landed her unharmed on .the ground.— Applstm's Journal.
