UPON THIS CONSTITUTION, AND TRAM

THE ACTION TO THE WORD).— Extract
from a Speech of Colonel Withers in ISC9.
ITKII-B WHICH FLAG, VIRGINIANS ?
''Tito stars in their courses fought against
Siscra ;" the Cerberean whelps of hato and
fund fought with him. The same supernal
and infernal elemen:s and agencies aro
engaged in the political conflict now wag
ing in this state, and array themselves
respectively against freo government and ,
for it. The one party desires that freedom '
should assume a more winning form, be
coming humanized by loyalty, ennobled by
an alliance with truth, consecrated by
humanity, and uplifted by religious prin
ciple ; the other desires to see her dragged
down to a level with the slavery that Jabin
would have imposed upon liarak and
Deborah, had not the stars fought against
Siscra. The stars arc now fighting against
tho same intolerance and hato that the
king of Ilazor bore against the people of
Deborah, that brave prophetess and Joan
d'Aro of the Bible, who headed tho attack
upon Siscra, and afterwards composed that
splendid tiiumphal song, in honor of
liarak's victory, now preserved in Judges.
What the people cf Virginia want is a
new set of political leaders, who have been
taught to prize and honor a spirit of nation
ality as the best safeguard of national
independence, and the only sure and abso
lute security and basis of popular rights.
The zealots and enthusiasts of rebellion,
who flattered the people with tho hopes
and promises of the morning rainbow of
secession in 1800, are not tho men to be
disciplined by tho storms of adversity that
have sinco followed, nor sobered by the
increaso cf years, which havo como to
whiten theii locks, but not to add wisdom
to their overmuch zeal. They may make
excellent law-mongers, of tho sycophantic
type, hut statesmen "looking before and
after," (tho real Ncstorian type,) never.
General Semper and his associates on the
Conservative ticket, were so blinded by tho
diz/.ling rainbow of secession that not an
in.li of the future is opened to their view,
and especially the future which is so full
of promise and glory to the great American
Republic. Their eyes are constantly turned
back to the " secession rag" that Haunted
itself in deflanco to tho Union for four
years of bitter strife and feud, when tho
Cerberean whelps of hate wero on tho track
of human freedom ; but as to tho glori
ou. "stripes and stars," which may
be said to have closed tho conflict of
Siscra and left Mount Tabor a monu
ment of Libeity to Israel, they havo
no vision wherewith to picrco the future of
our countiy, or greet the splendors of its
atiny banner.
Sliall tho future of the Republic bo entrust
ed then lo these men —these blind soldiers
of Jabin—orßhall the men of prophetic vir
ion, and the statesmanship that looks
before as well as after, be welcomed to tho
task of aduiinisteiitig government among
us ? Wo want no blind leaders to lead tho
blind in tho future of our state,nor in tho
grander future of the Republic. Nor do
wo want any such secession statesmanship
>a.s that which prides itself upon being one
of the horns ot tho second beast in Revela
tions, lhat spake as a dragon, and gave
power to the lirst beast (slavery), which had
the claws of a bear wherewith to rend tho
beautiful garments of Liberty. No, no
the people havo come to abhor these char
acteristic traits and principles, and to sigh
for the influences that lead to national
unanimity, and for the gracious tendencies
that look to peao, reconciliation, and pros
perity among all our people.
I_t it bo said of us, as of the soldiers of t
Barak : " We Jought from heaven ; the
stars in their courses fought against Sisera.''
We have a unauimity grounded on
m >ral sentiments and feelings, with no
equivocal sources of national pride and '
boast, and while the future of Virginia is '
no less dear to tut than that of tho central
power with which her grander destinies are '
identified, wo cannot look upon the one
except as the integral or supplemental part
.f tho other, nor regard the fate of either !
otherwise than as fatally involving that of
both together. It is no gratification for us to '
;ay, but rather a source of the profoundest
•egret, that in all Iho speeches mado by I
ieneral Kemper which wo havo heard or 6
cad, there has been no generous utterance B
-much loss a single enthusiastic outburst *
.f admiration—for tbe "stars and £
tripes,'' our old historic banner; whilo ho
ins not failed, in any speech made in the a
bscurest comer of the stato, to exhaust a
is most oxhuberaut rhetoric in a
is references to the "stars and bais." I
question of good taste and propriety in
making these habitual references—es
pecially in a general whoso military
record during the rebellion was not such as
to give him a reputation beyond the limits
of his own state—and appeal to tho men
and women of tense In Virginia, in whoßO
breasts there is still a lurking sentiment of
loyalty to the old Union, to know whether
it is not painfully wearisome to witness this
eternal blazon of secession and tho old rag
by which it was symbolized ?
But the wearisomeness of this thing is
not its worst feature. The young men of
the state, who ought to be growing up as
the brightest ornaments of learning, prob
ity and honor, are being poisoned by this
constant and obtrusive display of animos
ity to the Union, and hate to its govern
ment and flag. May a merciful providence
at length constrain them to depart from all
such vile teachings, and to wclcorao, in
all iv sufficiency of power, that love of
country which should spring up in the
heyday of their youth and hope, and be
como tho best and only suro bulwark of
defense to the Republic.

OIVE US AN ANSWER.
We wish to inquire whether the railroad
king of this state, "Old Hundred-Dollar
Panama," is so running the Southside
railroads that fell into his hands by a
trick of legislative legerdemain, that the
Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newark, and
Now York flouriug-mills, can get their
wheat from Georgia and Tennessee at such
reduced through rates as to enable them
to manufacture and sell flour, •in their
rsspective markets, at least seventy-fivo
I cents a barrel cheaper than tho flouring
mills of Richmond and Lynchburg ? We
are so informed on most excellent authority,
and it behooves tho candidate for governor,
nominated by another trick of legerdemain
at fho Richmond Theatre, as well as his
political backers and friends, to definitely
inform the public on tho subject. Are tho
railroads, which four years ago were tho
property of tho stale, but now tho proper
ty of this railroad king by virtue of a
political "presto, change," to bo so manipu
lated as to discriminate against Virginia
interests in favor of thoso lurther North?
We are credibly so informed.
Let the general reader understand that
these Virginia railroads, built by the peo
ple's money and parted with for a high
diddle-diddlo soug, now charge the Rich
mond and Lynchburg flouring-mills such
rates of transportation for Georgia and
Tennessee wheat, that tho Northern doalcrs
can outbid them from three to five cents a
bushel in price, and yet get their wheat to
market over the samo roads at a handsome
margin of profit as against tho Virginia
dealers.
Imd the man responsible for this outra
us discrimination against Virginia inter
i is the ono who nominated Kemper
r Withers, and expects to bo tho next
ernor of the stato by that happiest of
itical devices—a proxy! It was this
icely owner of the railroads of the
c, who, when Kemper was nominated,
id in the parqtiette of fho Richmond
:atre, "far back under tho galleries,
. General Stringfellow on one arm and
tor Chamberlayne on the other, and
iso eyes gleamed like a crater" as a sud
change of votes determined the success
bin candidate—the man whom ho sue
fully nominated according to tho cor
londent of tho Louisville Courier-Jour
whose report of the proceedings was
rovingly copied by tho Conservative
38 of tho state.
Pill the men who want cheap flour in
imond and Lynchburg, and who de
id fair play for all Virginia interests,
i for this railroad king to be the next
;rnor of the state by proxy ? If their
Is are lovol, not much.
IUW THE HOT'I'O.H DROPS Oil
he Whig of this morning figures up tho
ro state interest in tho several railroads
r irginia, which the Conservative party
turned over to "Old Hundred-Dollar Pana
ma" el al., at the humiliating figure
of $3,850,000. Where is tho bottom, then,
to the "thirty-five millions of available
assets," which Governor Walker assured
the peoplo of tho state were in the hands
of tho Conservative party to meet out
standing liabilities ? By what trick of
hocus-pocus and political lodgerdcmain did
the bottom drop out of these magnifi
cent assets in Conservative keeping?
Is Signor Blitz dead, or docs he
still live to revise his own obituary ?
Thero are only about $20,000,000 of these
assets missing, according to Conservative
authority. This is so insignificant a sum
that The Whig is no doubt greatly surp
prized that anybody should make a fuss
about it. What aro twenty millions of
dollars to tho "bully" leaders of tho
Conservative party, so long as it comes
out of the people and goes into their
pockets? It is only a nice little plum, to
be sure, and so long as the Conservatives
can have their fingers exclusively in the pub
lic pie, the people should be happy and the
Conservative party in high feather.
Hb (Governor Walker. In his speech at Marion,)
said that he had known oocasioually an honest
man to belong to the Republican ) arty, while In
the South thoso who are holding aloft the ban
ner of Republicanism with one hand, are robbing
anil pludering the]people among whom they live
I with tho other.— Cllppedfrom Eiuptircr.
Four years ago this samo Governor
Walker was " holding aloft the banner of
Republicanism" with both hands, and no
people in any lax-paying land in christen
dom havo been more villainously robbed
and plundered than those of Virginia sine
that time. Tho Governor has known "oc
casionally an honest man" in the Repub
lican party. Wo are glad to hear it; bu
doubt if their honesty was much improve
by being in Butler's " littlo camp down o
the Jeemes," where ho was so effectuall
\ " bottled up" that what little thieving was
going on had to be confined entirely to the
sutler's department. Wo are glad to fin(
so liberal an estimate of Republican hon
esty coming from such an unquestioned
source.
The Dean of Canterbury made a very
[ sensible remark, at the Evangelical Alli
ance on Friday, that the body had not
assembled to make a constitution for the I
OF THE CONSTITUTION NUGATORY.
IT SHAI.T, NEVER BE CARRIED OCT
BY ANY VOTE OR ACTION OF Ml > I
— R. T. Darltet, in a Speech before the Virginia
Legislature at its last session.
A cliitino from tho Huntington, (W.
Va.) Independent found its way into our
columns on Saturday, which is calculated
to do great injustice to one of our mot
worthy and respected citizens. It refers
to tho libel suit brought by General Im
boden against the editor of tho Charleston
(W. Va.) Courier, which is chain
pioniug the speculative rings and
combinations formod in West Virginia
to prevont the development of any
coal mines in the Kanawha Valley, except
such as they thomselves control. If Gen
oral Imbodon can succeed in breaking tho
back of this infamous monopoly, and shut
tho mouths of some of the lying newspapers
bought up by the "coal rings," ho will do
a work for which the people of Richmond
and the entire state will owo him a dobt
of no small gratitude.
What Dr. Curry said beforo the
Alliance was just as true as "preaching;"
but when in Rome you must do, you
know, as tho Romans do. Napoleoni
when in Egypt, issued his proclamations
in the name of "Allah, and Mehomct his
Prophet.'' He bent to the religious pre
judices of the people he was addressing.
But, perhaps, there is superior virtue, if
not wisdom, in refusing to bend at any
time. The dogma of "church and stato"
is so thoroughly anti-American, that it is
not surprising thero should bo a littlo
"stiffening up of the back-hone" among
our Baptist friends whenever the subject is
broached. Of ono thing we may all bo
proud, and that is, that no city in the
Union was moro ably rep.esented in the
Alliance than Richmond.
It is no joke getting up these brevities, we are
seldom in the humor of joking now.— Enquirer.
"Jess so ;" you have the best of possi
ble reasons for being "down in tho mouth"
about theso days. Tho Consorvatibo nag
don't Kemper so well as it did at first,
although its Withers, we are sorry to say,
wero more ungratefully wrung at the Rich
mond Theatre than anywhere else. It was
Billy Mahone, of tho " gleaming crater
eye," that wrung the Withers of the Con
servative nag. After election, then, say
not that we did it. It lieth not in the
humor of joking to put such a sin upon us.
It was astonishing how many men know "just
how it would be" after 10 o'clock Friday night at
the Exchange h .lei.— Enquirer.
Yes ; but it was more astonishing still to
some to know precisely " how it wasn't,"
after the political cards were played that
night. The " Heathen Chinee" is übiqui
tously nowhere beside the " Conservative
rings" of Richmond, when up to their little
sleeve-gammon operations in politics. The
mourners go about the streets, and, like
Rachel, refuse to be comforted.
The heroism of tho clergy at Shrevo
port during the epidemic has reached a
sublime degree of self-sacriflcc. The same
is proving to bo true at Memphis. In the
former placo no less than four Catholic
priests have fallen victims to their bravo
and disinterested devotion, and clergymen
of other denominations are imitating their
example. Tho sublimest heroism is that
which faces death when it shakes tho
mighty pestilence in its hand.
= =====
Democracy says it is willing to let
by-gOnes beby-gones. So are Republicansi
and the Democratic party is the greatest
bygone of the age. It has been defeated
in every issue ou which it has appealed to
the country for tho past twelve years,
iand in Virginia it will bo defeated again
this year. Democratic campaigns, under
Conservative aliases, will be found better
schools for patience than house-cleanings.
Daniel, the aspirant for the atttorncy
generalship, will not only "come to judg
ment," but be a "gone case," after elec
tion. The Republicans propose to enter a
"nolle" in his behalf, on the 4th of No
vember next, if ho don't kick up too much
of a fuss beforo that timo. Ho isn't tho
Daniel that entered tho lions' den, as somo
of the people in the tide-water region (an
infinitessimal few of them) seem to think.
Ai—i tho arguments yet advanced are in
favor of tho election of the Republican
candidates, state and local; all the pre
judices are against it. But the peoplo of
Virginia, it is hoped, are ruled by reason,
not swayed by passion. Herein consists
the pledge and prophosy of tho success of
the Republican ticket.
We shall endeavor to pay our politest
respects to The Dispatch to-morrow, for
the handsome manner in which il draws
upon its upper ciso in quoting from one of
our editorials ol last March. Other and
more pressing matters demand our attention
to-day.
There, is but a little mure than halt'a month
now for work, and let us all put in our biggest
licks Enquirer.
Only hold up until after the fourth of
November, and you will get one of the
" biggest licks" you ever had in your life.
