DEMOCRATIC ORGANIZATION.
It give* us great pleaBuro to publish (lit; following pro
ceedings We earnestly call upon our Iriends in evory coun
ty of the State to hold meetings at once, and appoint dele
gate# to District Conventions, ?t the times and places spe
cified, for the nomination of suitable candidates for the im
portant office of Commissioner of Public Works. Thl*
Board will constitute the most influential power in the
Commonwealth, and it is of the first importance that it 6hould
be filled with Democrats of information, intelligence, experi
ence in business, and decision of character, moral and poli
tical. In the shott space intervening before the election, no
one can speak with more authority than the Democratic rep
resentatives in the Legislature, assembled here ? and ur
cannot doubt that their recommendation will be heartily rt
sponded to by the Democracy throughout the State.
It will be seen that in this, the 'id District, Staunton has
been recommended as the j>lucc, and the 2d of May as the
time, for holding the Convention, so as to allow all the coun
ties to have meetings on their court days to appoint dele
gates:
THK HOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS.
A convention of the Democratic members of the General
Assembly was held in the H.ill of the House ol Delegates on
Saturday, March 19ih, 1653
Oo motion of Mr. Deneale, Benjamin Bassel, Jr , Esq.,
wu called to the Chair, and on motion of Mr. Reger, J. M
H. Brunei was requested to act as Secretary.
On motion of Mr. Stovall, the following preamble and
resolutions were adopted:
Whereas the important election of Commissioners of the
Board of Public Works is required by law to be held at the
same time thai the spring elections take place; and, where
as, it is of the first importance to have selected as candidates
for said office, three good and Hue Democrats of know n ca
pacity upon whom all the parly may rally in their respec
tive districts; and lor the purpose ot organizing the party
throughout the State, ami lor die further purpose ol produ
cing harmony and fraternity, us well as concerted and uni
ted action, which is essential to success: Therefore,
Resolv. d, Thai this convention recommend to the Demo
crats of Virginia to hold meetings in their respective coun
ties and cities, as early as possible and appoint delegates
to a convention to be held in each District?thai is to s>y:
That the First District hold its convention in Lynchburg,
on Fiiday, the -2d of April.
That the Second District hold its convention in Staunton,
on the 2d of May.
That the Third District hold its convention iu Winchester,
on the 29th of April.
Resolved, That the Democratic papers throughout iIn
state, be requested to publish the proceedings ol ilii.i con
vention.
The convention iticn adjourned.
BENJAMIN BASSEL, Jr , Chairman.
J. M. H. Bruset, Secretary.
WM. L. MARCV, SECRETARY OF STATE.
Some straggling Southern Whig papers, which sup
ported. den. Scott, still continue to carp at the able Secreta
ry of Slate, as not sound upon the great question of the
Constitutional rights of the South. The Lagrange (Oa.)
Reporter is guilty of a double misrepresentation, when it
puts forth such ridiculous stuff as the following :
"Mr Marcy was one of Air. Van Buren's Cabinet, and
has long been an aspirant for the Presidency. He is, how
ever, a man that has a jjood deal of political knowledge, and
knew very well in 1333, and '39 how to make out his bill
against uncle Sam tor re-seating his "trouealoons," and
Other charges. His notions in slavery agree with those of
Martin and John luu Bur en "
Now, Mr. Marcy never wns a member of Mr. Van Bu
m's Cabinet, and he has been conspicuous as a consistent
opponent of the Wilmot Proviso. As to the "patch," New
Vork, and not the United States, fooled the bill- -and it was
done through a very amusing confusion of bills and vouch
ers, public and private.
The Nashville Banner also assumes to classify Mr. Marcy
as a free-soiler, whose sympathies and associations are with
those who are opposed to the compromise, including the fu
gitive slave law. We find in the Boston Poet the most con
elusive evidence to disabuse the editor of that paper and all
others who may entertain similar views - viz: two able and
manly letters from Mr. Many, written not for publica'ion,
but to a private individual who consulted him on the subject
The only pretext upon wim... ,v?... _ rP--?
as to the position of Ex Governor Marcy, is (says the Bos
ton Post) the relations alleged to have been formed between
Got. Marcy and the leading barnburners ol New York In
August, 1852, just previous to the meeting of the New York
Democratic Convention at Syracuse. The point at issue
then was, whether that Convention should endorse or repu
diate the compromises, especially the fugitive act. A dis
tlngulshed free-soilet wrote to G ?v. Marcy with a view to
urge upon him, as the only hope >i union between the two
sections of the Democracy of New York, the policy of in
duclng the Convention, as a compromise of opinions, to
pass over the fugitive law and the compromises, in silence.
To this appeal Governor Marcy replied in two letters. They
were written in the full confidence of private correspon
dence, and thereforo give us the entire mind and purpose ot
Gov. Marcy. At that period there was much doubt as to
whether the Baltimore Convention would affirm the com
promises. The barnburners and coalitionists of the North,
and many of the ultras ol tho South were urgently opposed
to engrafting the compromises upon the national Democratic
creed. There was great danger that the Democracy would
fall Into the error Almost the only State Convejjiif tf,at
had unequiyor?!' upon this aunjecT, was the Massa
chusetts Democratic Convention, held at Worcester in July,
1651. The resolutions of that Convention, affirming the
compromises, which wort* reported by Mr. Hailed, Iroin u
committee of conference, and distinctly adopted by the Con
vention, were as follows :
t> Resolved, That the Democratic psrty of thin Common
wealth, is a national and not u sectional party, and fully and
unreservedly adapts the resolutions of the National Demo
cratic Convention ut Bultimore, in 1S-13, as tho only true
Democratic creed.
The resolutions of dint Convention, reported by Mr. Hal
lett front a committee of conference, Itiily affirmed the com
promises. The resolution, referred to by Governor Marry
iji hit letter, was the following :
7. Resolved, That the Baltimore platform (of lS-l-j) cover*
and was intended to etnbruee the whole question <>l tdavery
agitation in Congress* and therefore w go for n faithful ex
ecution of, and acquiescence m all the compromise measures
teltltd by the last Congress".
This resolution subsequently was engrafted upon the Bal
titnoie platform, almost in ilie same form, eo that as early as
August, 1851, Governor Matey adopted and approved in ad
vance the precise creed of the Baltimore Convention in re
gard to slavery, and recommended it as the best form he
could suggest, for the New Yoik Convention of 1851. The
Baltimore Convention gaveiJS votes to Governor Marry for
President, of which -17 were cast by delegates froin South
? ro States These facts arc the most emphatic endorsement
of the soundness of Secretary Marcy's views on the com
promises, and they put to Might all insinuations that the op
ponents of llie Union, or the compromises or the Baltimore
platform, whether colling themselves Democrats, Whigs, free
?oilers or barnburners or coalitionists, will find any favor,
countenance or sympathy from the Secretary, in thedistin*
guished position lie cow occupies, in <he Cabinet of General
Pierce:
LKTl'LK OK ?V. MAItl'V t?N THE n i.MPROMISE'S
Lkuanon Springs, Aug. 16, 1851.
My Dear Sir,?1 regret my absence from home had pre
vented me from receiving your letter of 9th tilt, until yester
day. I em'nace the first moment of leisure to leply to it.?
1 was, 1 believe, among the first to desire, and one ol Hie
earliest to utke steps towards, the uni.>n of the democratic
party in this State. I did not suppose that the object could
be obtained without some yielding on both sides. If we ex
pect to act efficiently at the next und subsequent elections,
I presume the same policy inu.st be pursued. The Union if
not consolidated ? mere are ultra men in both sections ol
the party, and they may succeed in effecting whKt they pro
bably desire, an open end permanent disruption; but in that
case ihey can never have my co-operation or approval.
There are difficulties in our path, but 1 think they can be
overcome. They do not appear to me to be formidable To
restore harmony and consolidate our Union, wo have, it
seems to me, to do little morn than to retire on to our former
common ground, and to lay aside und forget, so, 1'arna it can
be done, till matters which led to our differences. We can
not, however, forget the laet, or uct without reference to it,
that we belong to a national democratic party, and cannot,
without renouncing that fellowship, either diiectly approve
or impliedly sanction anything that is essentially sectional
No man ever went further in sustaining this position than
Mr. Van Buren and Mr. V\ri*{ht, and no one more heartily
concurred with thim than 1 did. 1 am determined to keep
oo that ground while 1 occupy any.
The compromise measures >re gent rally regarded as dem
ocratlc measures, tn nearly all the states of this Union 1
am not aw ire thai there has been e. single democratic con
vention in any o! them, which has not spoken approvingly
of these measures. Our convention laet year did so, though
not with entire unanimity. Can that which is soon to as
aetnble do les? 7 Can it be silent on the subject without
losing its position as a part of the national democracy J 1
do not think it can. I go larthcr. I think it ought not to
BM! over the subject in silence, it will undoubtedly be
brought up (or consideration, and il a majority should refuse
to act, a minority will, 1 am quite certain, express its opin
ion on natiDnal issues, ar.d in this way the old fued will be
renewed. On the other hand, a majority of the convention
may, in the expression of their sentiments, embrace topics
and use terns which will be offensive to the minority, and
oauso secession. There is danger on both sides?and ;the
safe path- way is a narrow ono. 1 think, and indeed I sin
cerely hope, there will be s. genetal disposition ir. the con
vention to plsce itself on national grounds ?to show in no
equivocal manner its fellowship with the democratic part of
the Union; but 1 am very solicitous that it should do this in
a manner which shall not give olJeace to those who were,
and still ar?j, opposed to ?omo of the compromise nieu6ures.
Can Buch a eouree bo pursued 7 There is but one of those
measures?the fugitive slave hw?which is likely to cmbar
ras the procetdings of ihe convention. 1 think tbe practical
operation* ft that law have gone far to remove or abate tfio
opp'-sr.iua to if. At first its constitutionality was question
;>!; iiui Uu\v it is not m>, Iimiu cnusidri utile <\\triil. Ii w
ihen m pposcd It would endanger the ln<eity of tin* lr?e rnl
jrtd iii.'.c, but now 1 believe thai apprehension is luiic-li J< s
(?ti'vul. ni In lis practical i llei.t ji s ii? im>re than it
was intended in do?secure to elaveholdeis tin: lnn< lit <?! that
provision ol tho constitution requiring the surrender of lugi
live slaves, l! this be so, it really does no more than ti
curry out the old and revered doctrine of the democratic par
tv - tho maintenance of the compromises of the constitution
To this item of the democratic creed.ns ancient ami as often re
prated as .nu other in it.nil, I presume,are willing tosubscribi
?and n r? petition of it by the convention with a reference 01
obvious n lation to that constitutional provision, miaht su
prrsede any if.iect opinion on the fugitive slave law. Then
is nothing in liie compromise measures, of esteemed valur
to tho South, but this law; and they regard opposition to
the law or ? lelusal to sustain it, as a determination to with
hold from thru the practical benefit of that provision ol the
constitution which relates to fugitive slaves. So lar us abo
litionists are i onccrned?I believe 1 might include others
opposition to t!ie law is in fact opposition to the: constitu
tion. They t ill it tho "higher law" to repeal it. The great
body of thedt mocrats- I hope I may say all democrats? cer
tainly all who wish to remain in communion with the na
tional Democratic party, who had or now have objections to
that law, founded their objections upon the peculiarity of its
provision?; but ure willing that the object of the law should
Oe obtamc.l In a proper way. l"'or myself, I not only acqui
esce in the law us it is, but should regret to see uny efforts
made to change or tnodily it, because in its object it satisfied
the South, ami docs no more than fairly subserve the ob
jects intended. It does not, as I um aware, produce any
grievance?it does not in its operation put in peril the rights
or liberty of the free colored man. Opposition to it on pecu
liar ground is, through the slave holding Slates, understood
to be opposition to the objects of it?opposition to the con
stitution. Taking litis view ? I the subject, 1 should feel no
difficulty myself?indeed I should desire, if I were in the
convention, to express a dirict and unequivocal approval of
this, among the other compromise measures;?yet in deler
ence to othets who (tillered with me in the views above ex
pressed, 1 would waive such an expression if in any other
way 1 could give assurance to the Democrats in all sections
of the Union that th"?e of this State are determined lo
stand on the national platform of the party, and maintain
fidelity to all the provisions of the constitution, as inm-h as
that in regard to fugitive slaves, as to any others.
Signed, W. L. MA ROY.
The portions of the above letter omitted related to State
policy on the canal measures.
Mr. Marcy's correspondent (we further learu from the
Boton Post) replied to the above letter, again urging the
indispensable necessity of the convention not endorsing the
compromises, as the only possible ground of a re-union of
the Democratic party in New York. Mr. Marcy again re
pelled (his position still more emphatically in the following
letter. He would not assent lo the qualified and evasive
position then so common among that portion of the De
mocracy inclined to yield to or fear the abolition storm
against the fugitive slave law, viz: that it was enough to re
ariirrn the Baltimore resolutions of 1018, and omit all allu
sion to that hw. Mr. Marcy met this with the most direct
disapproval:
Albany, August27, 1851.
My Dear Sir?On my return homo alter a short absence, I
found your letter of the "Jlst.and have subsequently given It
my best consideration. 1 was apprehensive that if you and
1 could not discover grounds on which we could place our
selves and act harmoniously together, it was hardly reason
able to hope that the delegates in the convention would be
more successful, i have therefore felt disposed to get a? near
your positions as principle and policy would permit. Doing
this, I fear ihcrc is yet a considerable space between us. 1 find
no difficulty in giving my hearty assent to most of iltu posi
tions iu the draft of present resolutions with which you have
lavored me. In the aspect of affairs, the mere declaration that
the democratic party of this state is an integral part of the
democratic party of the Union, would not of itself go far to
wards showing, that we are in fact whers we claim to be. ?
Our claim would hardly be allowed, without some spe
cification ot our faith. What is afterwards SRld in the
resolution would not bo deemed satisfactory, nnd indeed
is not satisfactory to me. The unrestricted control over
slavery in the stales ? not only in those already foimed,
but such as may be formed out of our territories?
is not a questionable matter by any party or any class of men,
except prih ips extreme fanatical abolitionists.
The othtr clause in the resolution would, 1 apprehend, he
deemed more objectionable than you are aware of. 11 ap
pears to imply an objection not only against the present fu
giiive slav,- law, nnd against any which could beenacted by
Congress or any State Legislature, hut it questions the right
of Congress or a State Legislature t?? make any law what
ever on that subject. It leaves the slaveholder to the naked
coustituti"n 11 declaration of bis rights in reclaim a fugitive,
unaided by any legislation, Slate or national. While it ac
knowledge* ilit- right, it withholds the means of making
it available. Kxperieuee tenches that tint clauseol the Con
stitution, like many others, requires legislation to give it el
Oct. This became apparent in the early stages ?<! the go
verninent, and the law of 1703 was enacted to give it tiled.
Even that law was found inefficient, nnd the slaveholding
States thouc'it they had a right io one more iliective in its
character. To refuse them such a law and leave that part ol
the Constitution a dead letter so far as relates to their teme
1 y, is, as they think, withholding from thcni what they are
justly entl'l.-d ;>> under the Constitution, and a violation of
the federal compact. They look upon it in this serious light,
and arc del. imined to have the aid of the federal govern
ment in cartyingout till* provision of the Constitution, or
will withdraw irom it. 1 cannot say they are uiong in this
mutter ol el-im; indeed 1 think they arc not.
If the free States should place themselves in this ease
upon the petition of the resolution you sent me, and net up
in it, the Union would be inevitably dissolved. II we look
'*** ol tin* I'nion I her** mils' he III 111 V SC
rious opimoo, iheio ought to be - a fugitive .slave law; an ei
fectivu law thai will answer its professed object: one that
will be praciie.il in iis operation, and make the remedy less
expensive (In the value ol the right It is designed to se
cure. As a democrat, and what is more, as a staunch friend
of the Union, I am in Uvor ol sueh a law, and willing io
make it a substantial article ol my political I.nth. 1 do not
doubt thai many who agree with me on this point, do not
like the e.\''< t law. II this is the extent of our disagreement
we are not separated by principle, und may .net loyethsr.?
Agreeing iu me end, we difi'er as to tho means of reaching
it. 1 do not think our convention ought to be silent on this
subject; and if it is not i xpedient to endorse the existing
law, it ought ut least to go so far as to declare that the ?l ive
holding States are entitled to the full henefi- of that i lause
in the Constitution which provides lor the surrender of fu
gitve slaves, and that proper laws ought to be passed to give
it full and fair * fleet, without unnecessary burden, rendering
the remedy more expensive than the worth of die right. 1
do not say the prc-w nt law is. in all respects, the best that
could he enacted on the subject. Iu some of its provision*
it might be improved; hilt it muat, 1 think, m candor, be
confessed, that it has thus far worked fairly well. The in
stance of objection io which you refer, was rather the fault
of the commissioner than that of the law With all its de
fects, 1 am w illing to acquiesce In it, for the reason th&i it fair
iv carries out its object, without seriously endangering other
iirTporofc.''1 Mtihis, and for the further spceial reason (which
is a weighty one wfiti'Ynty^ that It is ii part ol a system^ of
compromise with which the north nad, U|7Tin the whoTeT
more reason to be gratified than the south. By proclaiming
a dislike to the fugitive slave law, and thereby continuing 1
tho agitation, we incur tho imputation of being willing to t
take iTust part of this bargain which we like, uint iiony tu Hie
other party tliiit which it likt-a. In this respect it ought tu
be looked at in it light somewhat different from thai in which
we would view ordinary enactments. There is also another
consideration which would iloter mo from manifesting dis
satisfaction which the law, unless moved to it by tlx: pres
sure of evil consequences; it in the almoRt inevitable cer
tainty ihat my object woald In- misunderstood, and my eon
duct give ofieiice in quartets wlteie further irrituion should
be avoided, if i' can he, without a surrender ol right*or di:i
regarding principles. Abolitionists oppose the fugitive slave
law upon the "round that it gives practical effect lo the con
stitution. They arc in fact opposed to that pari of the
constitution; and in the present state ol feeling at the south,
it is not reasonable to expect any clear discrimination of the
dilfereitl groi.njs id oppoeilion to that law.
I have etnlenvorcd to show, in a man our 1 confess not
very satisfacloiy <o myself, in what light 111? action of the
convention will lie viewed by the Democrats here and in
other slates, il it should cay what you suggest, and nothing
more, if more is t<> be said?and more I think should be
said, even il wlial you propose should lie adopted, w hat shall
that more be?
Here we enter upon debatable ground. Il the convention
should ex press a general approval of and acquiescence in the
compromise measures, this course will be objectionable tu
some, because it w ill include an approval ol the fugitive
slave law ; and if that ia excepted and nothing said on the
subject, the convention will thereby place itself in manifest
opposition to that law . It will, in a matter now grow n into
vital importance, cut itself oil from all fellowship with
Southern Democrats; it will excludo thorn from its platform
and place it sell on sectional ground. II It undertakes todis
tinguifh its opposition to that law from the abolition ground
of opposition, it most place its objection to it on the peculiar
features of the pr> sent act?express iis concurrence in its ob
ject?and suggest other provisions equally effective to c.iiry
it out, taking care that they are not impracticable or burden
some, in orilt r to escape the charge of insincerity. I appre
hend there would be as much diversity ol opinion in the con
vention on such a resolution as there will be on the merits
of the present law. I have thought ol framing such a reso
lution, but experience a difficulty in bringing out sufficient
ly the strong points of objection to the present act.
In view of th-se difficulties, another course has been sug
gest* d,?siience on all matters relative to the affairs of (he
general government. If I am not mistaken, I t >ok strong
ground this course in inv former letter. Subsiqmni
reflection .in I developments have continued the views then
presented. The convention in Ohio went as lar as you pro
pose to go, in ilie resolution transmitted to me, but omitted
all allusion lo the compromise measures. What interpreta
tion, let me ask, has been given t.? us course, both in and
out of thai Slate'? It has been said there, and reiterated
here, that the resolutions of that convention, s - tar as thev
relate to national questions, are tinti-slavrry, w ith the recog
nition of the principle of non-intervention with the States ?
Gv its silence, it is said "the comjiromisc reuses* the rebuke
oj tilent contempt;" and its course can be construed "only <is
a free soil triumph." This may be a harsh commentary, but
the proceeding* of the Ohio convention a I ford nothing to re
hut it. 1. should bo borne in mind that this interpretation
of the views the Ohio convention is exuliingly promulga
ted here by those who are urgent in season and out of season
to have our i onvcntieri take the same course rs 'hat taken
by the convention in Ohio; and should their policy he pur
sued, there can be no doubt that they would use the same
language ol exultation and triumph in regard to the proceed
ings in thi.- t'.t'v I cannot believe the silent policy will find
much favor with the members ol our convention I h-j.e
in- I witn v inv of cither section who arc disposed to ad
vocate il; an.I very many who are determined to spesk out
on nuti rial question?, bo the eHect of doing so what it may,
on the harm ny of the party. The latter are determined to
occupy no equivocal position in the eyes of the dcmo' iais
the other Stutes of the Union; but while they avow this de
termination, thev profess, and I do not doubt very generally
feel, a sincere desiro to take a course aa little offensive as
possiblo towards those who may diller with them. Trey
vorv generally express a w illingness to stsnd on the same
ground taken by the convention of last year, and rpsist any
attempt to press matters to the other ex feme
It is quite a mistake to assume, as 1 presume some do.
that those who urge harmony nt the convention favor the
policyof saying nothing, or saying what is equivalent to no
thing, on national questions. They mean to avoid ex
tremes, and do enough and only et.ouL'h to jdsce themselves
fairly on a national democratic platioiiu. Under ordinary
circumstances this would lie doue by concurim? in the rrso
In lions of the national conventions of le JO, 1>J4, and I SIS;
but in the present exigency of our national nllairs it s?eins
to thutn that the compromise measures should not be passed
unnoticed and unapproved in some form. In regard to the
matter above considered, 1 have nothing of my own to
suggest, belter than the sixth and seventh resolution** ol
the late Massachusetts convention. A large majority of
that body were what are called free soil democrats; ind
though all of ihftt description did not approve or vote.for
these two resolutions, quite a number ol ibem did; other
wj.it iin y miiM it.it a,i ir Im ? ii passed. Something like tlu-si
nr n reiteration ul ili<r resolutions of our own convention of
last year, slightly modified, 1 trust will find general favor in
ilit- upiiro.-it-miig emiverition.

1 am soriy to troubleyou with a letter so longand so care
lessly written: but 1 am too lu'/.v to gn through the work of
correction and condensation. 1 am still tnorc troubled with
? lie apprehension of an almo>t irreconcilable difference ol

W. L. MARCY.
This second letter, which closed the correspondence, is so
emphatic, that every portion of it is necessary to a full un
derstanding of the subject, and we give il entire. It is one
of the most thorough, searching and conclusive arguments
that has been writton in favor ol the compromises, particu
larly the fugitive slave law. IN'or are we aware that Govern
or Marcy has in it single sentiment or sentence changed or
modified in any respect what he has written. If, therefore,
barnburners, or free-soilers, find any gratification or conso
lation in his selection as the head of the fierce .Cabinet, to
aid in carrying out the noble and sound doctrines of the in
augural, it must be because they have discarded their sec
tional heresies, and honorably mean to act as become sound,
natiniiil, union-loving, roriMtiiution rrspeciing lJcmocraist.
f.ui it is not only as an enlightened patriot, true to the
rights of the South, that Governor Marcy has shown him
self to be. His bitterest political opponents have stepped
forward to testily to his integrity as a man and as a public
otlicer For instance, the Albany Kvening Journal (Weed's
paper, and uncompromising Whig) thus atones for some of
iis acts of injustice to the veteran Marcy: |
"After standing for more than thirty-five years in an atti
tude of political antagonism to Gov. Marcy, during which J
time lie discharged the duties of Adjutant General, Comp
troller, Judge of Supreme Court, Senator in Congress, Gov
ernor ol the Stale, and Secretary ol War, it is but an act of
simple justice to say tlrit he passed creditably through these
trying ordeals, and now re-enters public life with a stain
less reputation. Widely as we have differed froin Governor
Marcy, mid fiercely as we have (in fierce conflicts} opposed
him, now, when looking calmly back through a long vista of
responsible public service, wa find a clean official rccord in
his !'?>vor, ii is no less a pleasure than a duty to bear testimo
ny to his integrity of character."
"Virginiu>-," an able writer iu the Union, shows conclu
sively tli.'it President Monroe put forth two separate ami din
tinrt declaration!1, as to tlio policy to bo pursued by the li.
S. government with regard to American aflairs iu its inter
course with Knropenn powers. The first, having reference
to the threatened interference of the Holy Alliance which had
for its object the subjugation of the Spanish American States
to the sway of the mother countiy, announced a general prin
ciple with regard to improper interference by European na
tions with American affairs, and the extension to the Ameri
can continents of the principles which were at the founda
tion of the Holy Alliance, that undertook to parcel out Eu
rope at tlf i Congress of Vienna.
The atcimd declaration relate? to European colonization on
the American continent, and allirmed that the continent is
no longer open to European colonization; the title to the
whole briny vested in States competent to hold it, eo that
no European nation could thereafter occupy any portion, as
vacant and unappropriated, by the establishment of new

pag'js; vi: Historical and L/eicriptive sketches of Sorfulk and
vicinity including Portsmouth anil the adjacent counties, du
ring a period of '.'00 years; also sketches of Williamsburg,
Hampton, Suffolk, Nmilhliuld e.nd other places; with descrip

Virginia: By William S. Forrest.
From a'Ti.b^JV glance at the work, we are impressed with
lie belief that the autnot jV.VS'u goo?T'uer vice,",ijii*cr''
icniiug a l<iithful sketch of the early history, present cotidi

deeervea tlit! thanks of the public tor "hie indefatigable
research and the extraordinary pain* lie has taken to rescue
from oblivion ami privetvu in a permanent and readable
form lhe Itisroiical remains and noticeable events" relating
loa portion o| the State, full of historical incident*. The
book in w lit ten ill a perspicuous style, and abounds in
personal aneedotcs aud local and graphic sketches ol various
portions nf the State, which commend it to the attention
uf every Virginian
We understand that the Secretary of the Treasury has
confirmed the purchase, by the commissioners, of the lot of
ground on Main street, opposite the Virginia Banks, for the
erection <?! a Custom House, Fcdctul Court room and Post
office.
ii is with sincere regret tli.it we pnhlirh the following card
from Mr. Holladay, declining to be a candidate for re-election
to Congress. By his modest and upright hearing, and his
clear judgment and strong mind, Mr. llolladay won the re
gard and respect of the membrrs of the last Congress ; ami
all who know him will feel true sorrow that Mr. Holladay
will not consent once more to contribute his valuable coun
sel in the National Congress.

As the time is approaching when the i lection <?! a repre

it becomes proper forme t? declare that I shall not be a can

will not obtrude upon you, except to say, that alter the most
careful rejection, I am convinced that my longer continu
ance in public lite would be entirely incompatible with a

family.
For the generous confidence reposed in me, 1 tender to
you, wiili unallcctcd .sincerity, my most gratelul acknow

endeavor to requite that confidence, by earnestly devoting
my time and labor to your service, rather than to my own
advancement; and however ineffectually that duty may have
been peii"rmod, 1 am conscious of no infidelity to the trust
