FEB. in 7 1873- Tnß State Journal has so often of late be trayed a hearty and a wise desire to advance the common good, that we ask it to aid the Conser vative press In our efforts to save Virginia from the horror and civil death of repudiation, and I to hinder the attainment of this great object inch wire-drawn subtleties as these, however mcd or pleasing.— Petersburg Index. This is just what we have been frying to ; but our Petersburg contemporary, ring committed itself to what ispractical a repudiation scheme, is loath to accept at it concedes to be true, and hugs to a toretical error more tenaciously than we mid to a practical truth. The Tndex ist havo read enough of our article to i a practical way of reaching tho bond- Ider's case, without the aid of any Am ietyonic council, which, by the way, is not exactly "an internation cnurt," as our contemporary al ;cs. Lot tho American bondholders ito with the European, and get tho latter press their demands, through thoir rc ectivc governments, on the government Washington, and the question will nar row itself down to a legitimate issuo very speedily. This course is not one that we should care to propose, but it ought to havo suggested itself to' The Index before it talk ed about our "beating the air" or "wasting research" to develope a tendency in the Legislature towards repudiation,—a thing that we have at no time attempted to do. The true repudiationist in Virginia is tho man who attempts to force conditions of in debtedness upon the people which it is im possible for them to meet and fulfill. Tnn Virginia legislature ptoposos to take , ha ge of tho grounds about Mount Vernon, fd eject therefrom the philanthropic Miss inningham, who has been charging people arbitant prices for seeing the tomb of the therof their country. —Bochesttr (.X. V) Demo- Not quite. The Legislature has pro posed nothing. But it should not let the present session pass without doing so. There have been hard on to a million visi tors to Mount Vernon since the close of the war, every one of whom has had to pay one dollar and fifty cents for the privilege— ninety ccr.ts to a Washington steamboat monopoly, and sixty cents to the Mount Vernon Association. Against this mo tjpoly and sale in the ashes of the immortal dead" wo protest. This As sociation has rented the wharf and pier, with the exclusive right of landing passen gers there, to the owners of tho steamboat Arrow iv Washington. This is a direct violation of the legislative grant made by Virginia to the Association at the time it authorized the sale of the property. L-.t one of two things be done : Either piss a law declaring all piers on the naviga ble streams of the State, including that at the Mount Vernon landing, "public piers," with the right of all vessels of tho same class to land passengers or freight on the same terms, or else repeal the act authorizing the Association to purchase and control the estate and ashes of Washington. At present the management is a disgrace to the State, and demands of the Legislature some de cisive action to put a stop to it. — The newspapers frequently make men tion of instances in which women find employment in the disguise of men, and suc cessfully keep up the deception for a longer or shortSr period. And the way in which disguises are finally pierced are very curious and in many cases very amusing. The sex of women in men's clothes has been exposed by the way they handle their feet in running up stairs ; by their voices; by their manner of throwing stones ; by their manner of sliding on ice, etc., etc. But the latest expose of which we have road is the most remarkable, and while remarka ble is touching, and is also creditable to the weaker sex. A woman who had followed the life of a sailor tor some time under tho supposition that she had a right to keep herself from starving without taking the alternative of infamy, relates that her sex was not mistrusted uutil she got into a knock down fight with another sailor, in which fight she was worsted, and in her madness and mortifi cation began to cry. Tears wero so un manly that they exposed her. Fortunately the captain's wife was on board, and suit able garments wero procured for tho un scxed sailor. She undoubtedly felt, if she did not say: I did not think to shed a tear In all my miseries ; but thou hast forcfd me * * * » to play the woman. I had not so much of man In me, Hut my mother came Into mine eyes. And gave me up to tears. THE great element of difficulty in the Indian problem is found in his constitu tional and inveterate laziness. All the be nevolent aud missionary efforts that have been expended upon him have only demon strated the impossibility of reconstructing him upon an industrial pattern. In fact, he refusos to bo born again. To support a few such expensive animals a whole con tinent must bo converted into a hunting park. Population must not grow so fast as to exceed the natural growth of the spontaneous fruits of the earth. Cultiva tion, by leveling the forest restricts this natural exuberance of production and nar i ows the fund of subsistence for the ine lastic, stereotyped barbarian. His savage hatred is primarily kindled agains civilized industry in the abstract, and then against all civilized people. The spirit of civilization is as yet imperfectly developed in even the most progressive races. Enough of barbar ism is still left in civilized men to incite them to rivalry of the most savage cruelties. Add Btho diabolical intrigues of whisky ers, land grabbers, and outlaws lly, and wo find upon our frontier a combination of causes which will forever prevent tho peaceful settlement" of tho question. "Lo, tho poor Indian," is on the road to rapid extinction, and he will soon got there. Such is the fiat of pro gress which no philanthropy can avert. The executions atSartory, it is pleasant to know, are to bo more satisfactorily per formed hereafter. The practice has been to give the order to fire by sign, ho that the soldiers were expected to have one eye on tho adjutant and to take aim with tho other. No pair of eyes can serve two mas ters properly at such times, and the con sequence was that the victims were meroiy wounded in some cases, and conducted themselves so ridiculously that they were obliged to bo shot a second time. Here after the firing will bo done by word of command, and the soldiers will have no excuse for not finishing their victims with the first volley. But if the French Republic of M.Thiers has no better business on hand than to bo constantly shooting political offenders, the sooner it is snuffed out tho bettor. Let this sort ol thing be monopolized by despotisms rather than that any republic should live to disgrace itself by such examples. Better perpetual despotism than one ItWh hn-tnrd republic. The Now York Evening Post thus com pliments President Grant for standing guard over tho doors of the Treasury in a way calculated to excite the admiration of all those who believe with him that the public moneys should be used alone for public service: We publish in anotiin column lbs President's veto of the bill lor the relief of the owners of certain salt works near Manchester, Ky., which weio destroyed during the war. His objections to this bill are similar to those contained in his veto of the West and East Tennessee University bills, and are set forth with singular force anil clearness. We have already emphatically declared our opinion that bills appropriating tho govern ment moneys lor the relief of private persous are, as a rule, nothing but respectable forms of beggary. President Grant has now for the third time taken tho same view. Congress, however, differs from the Fieddent on this question, aud a committee of the Senate recent ly rebuued him severely for his old-fashioned interference with the attempts to use the pub lic funds for other purposes thin those for which they t.re accumulated But it will not do. President Grant is not to be frightened with empty words. The members of Congrtss, re membering the oltl maxim in case of failure at the first attempt, havo repeated their effort three times, only lobe met each time by ttcurtNo from the President. It seems as it even the av erage Congressman ought to be able by this time to dimly catch his meaning. If, however, ihe Congressional understanding is jet darkened, we venture to say that President Grant will do what ho can to enlighten H at the next oppor tunity. A BILL is now pending before the New York legislature, which provides that any railroad company in that State shall bo lia able for personal injury or loss of life hap pening to any of its employees, except where the injury or death results from the carelessness or negligence of thcemyloyce. In case of tho loss of an arm, or leg, o r other permanent disability, the persons so disabled shall be entitled to recover in an amount not less than fifteen hundred nor more than five thousand dollars ; and in case of death, the legal representatives may recover not less than two thousand nor more than seven thousand dollars. The Richmond Statb Journal thinks it high time the term "carpet-bagger" were dropped. The term hurts nobody ; ii's the himself who needs the "drop."—.V c v? York Com' met cial, Rtp. When we happen to hear anything of that sort "drop''we'll let you know, justice is not very sure, now-a-days.— Baltimore Sun. It is true these fellows hvve " plenty of rope,'' but they will be sure to " hang themselves" therewith, and the people will ultimately see that the "drop falls.— Norfolk Virginian. Yes ; and when it does " fall," it will be a hopeless case if our Norfolk neighbor don't " go up." ■ % •==■ It appears by the accounts of the Paci fic railroad, that they know how to make the bills against the government cover as large a ground as possible. When any part of the load is threatened by hostile Indians, they telegraph to the nearest mili tary post, get a lot of soldiers, carry them to tlit point of alleged danger and back. The result is a goodly-proportioned bill against tho government for transportation of troops and supplies. There is nothing like having the "bags of Eicu.s " con stantly in one's hands, so as to " raise the wind " whenever one chooses to do so. Among the very clever tricks of the Credit Mobilier organization was a motion the other day in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to have it dissolved on the ground that it had done no business since July 18GS. The court, however, dis covered the "little joker," and indicated that the government had some business with it and that it could not so easily slink out of existence to avoid tho payment of its just dues to the public. We call attention to the notice we make to-day of The Journal of Industry, published in this city, in which we refer to a very important announcement made by the enterprising editors aud publishers of this excellent monthly publication—ono very important to land agents and immi gration societies in the State. It is said that fteneral P. T. Dent will retire from duty at the executive mansion on the fourth of March, and rejoin his regi ment in July. Literary NotlcuN. The issue of Lippincott's Magazine for March is highly attractive in respect to both its articles and its illustrations. The most striking feature is the opening portion of Mr. Black's charming new serial novel, "A Princess of Thule." The stylo of this story is more popular and engaging than that of the author's last work, "The Strange Adventures of a Phaeton," and' gives every indication of being one of his best productions, fully equalling "The Daughter of Heth," a novel of rare inter est from the same pen. The most valuable article is "The National Trans-Alleghany Water-Way," by Professor Thomas B, Maury, describing the method by which it is proposed to connect the waters of the Mis sissippi with thoso of tho Atlantic Oceai'., and thus establish direct communication between Omaha and the ports of Europe. The almost incalculable advantages which would result from the realization of this sip" contains some very discrimination criticisms upon the acting of Miss Ncilsor, some amus'u.g anecdotes of tho late Gene ral Robert E. Lee, and a variety of enter taining notes. We notico that the pub lisher's of Lippincott's Magazine offer as a club premium ouc of the most magnificent chromo-lithographs ever executed in this country, and upon tho production of which eight thousand dollars have been expended. The numbers of The LIVING Acje, dated respectively February Sth and February 15th, contain a large variety of noteworthy articles, as havo all tho numbers since the first of January. This is a sixty-four page weekly, and is tho best foreign reprint in the United States, and the cheapest. The first number of January began a new volume and new scries, affording an un usually excellent opportunity for the be ginning of new subscriptions. Tin sub scription prico of this magazine is 63 a year, or for ?10 any one of the American $4 magazines is sent with The Living Age for a year. Back numbers can be ordcied from tho commencement of the year. Littell & Gay, Boston, publishers. THE STATE JOURNAL FOR 1873 .
