SATURDAY KVI'.N'G. 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.
