We repeat that the Co*tom I loose statistics do
no- exhibit Virginia in the proper light. A very
large portion of the tobacco and fl jur exported to
foreign couutries, from this port, goes through
tho preliminary of coastwise shipment to a North
em port, there to take the foreign-bound vessels •
and, With regard to tobacco, certainly without
changing owaer*. Her sister States of the South
have the advantage of her that they are farther
taiy from those Northern ports, and the coa»t
wtee shipment not so convenient or cheap; there
fore their exports depart directly from their bar
bars. Virginia, in truth, stand* more likely at
the head of the exporting States. When the James
River and Kanawha Canal is finished, she will so
•tand on the tables of the Custom House, with the
exemption of New York, which is the exporter for
nearly half the Vuion. That Canal will bring so
large an amount of domestic produce to the A ir
«inla ports for shipment abroad that ships will
find ready cargoes here.aud will here come to seek
«a»ployment.
The Iljuatrtoua Dead
It was a reproach to Virginia in forrnei d*ys
that so Uttle had been d)na in marble or on c«u«
van to rontuemorate the fame of tho mighty
deal. It was noi until a late period that even a
rode healstone marked the resting placo of the il
lustrious Madison. This stain upon her escutcheon
Virginia has recently washed off. A haudsome
monument has been erocied there by order of the
Virgin!* Legislature. The Virginia Washington
Monument, reflects glory on the Present as well as
the Past of Virginia. The removal of President
Monroe's remains to Virginia, and tho proposition
to build over his grave an enduring memorial
showed that Virginia is determined to guard with
reverent gratitude the ashes of her mighty det<J,
•nd was the occasion of an outburst of nation# 1
patriotism and harmony that linked Virginia
more closely than ever to her sister States, aud
showed that we are yet a uuited people.
Hut, though much has been done to manifest
her affectiouate loyalty to the memory of her
great men, the graves of ssme of her most dis
tinguished sons still remain without a suitable
monument to mark their burial place. It has
been suggested, and we trust the suggestion will
he remembered, and at no distant day carried into
effect, that measures should be taken to obtain
the consent of the surviviug relatives of other Vir
ginia Presidents and other illustrious men of 'he
Revolutionary era to the beautiful aud com
manding eminence in Hollywood Cemetery, where
the body of President Monroe is now deposited-
It is not necessary that this removal should beac
rompanied with unnecessary pomp and expense,
but the State could well affjrd to make a small
appropriation to erect a monument over each,
simple, elegant and durable, like that of President
Monroe. We should then have in Hollywood al".
that is mortal of .Jefferson, Madison and Monroe,
protected from neglect and profanation, and n;a»
king a spot more hallowed and venerated ia the
eyes of America than Westminster Abbey. To this
consecrated ground, pilgrims might come from
every portionof the vast Republic, and replenish
the ares of patriotism at these holy shrines, aud
renew upon them the vows oi love and fidelity to
liberty and the Union.
Mormonism
This absurd imposture is now lbi(fy-ooe years
old. Joe Smith, its inventor, had no hesitation in
its early days, in admitting in private ihat
Htohe an imposture. On one occasion, wbilo the
Mormou temple was in Ohio, he confessed to Mr.
WiUoo, a lawyer of Cleveland, (now Judge Wil«
on of the U. S. District Court for Northern Ohio,)
t it wns a humbug, and defended it on the
und that, iu his opinion, all religions were
mbugs, and that he had us good a right asany»
<ly else to avail himself of popular credulity
bad this from Judge Wilson's own lips. The
te J. Washington Smith, former Graud Master of
lie Grand Lodge of Virginia, informed us that Joe
admitted the same thing substantially to him. At
the same time, there is no doubt that most of Joe
Smith's followers were honest in their delusiou,
as the sacrifice* they made <?f comfort and even of
property, abundantly prove. The revelation of
I'olygamy to the Saints is comparatively recent,
not having been publicly proclaimed till I&>3,
though they weie suspected both of the theory
and practice before that time. I tah wa* recog
nized by the Federal Government as a Territory
in 1850, and Brighaiu Young appointed Governor
by Mr. Fillmore, an appointment which was re.
newed undw the administration of Gen. Tierce.—
It isnot much credit to the boasted enlighteument
of the age and country that such a superstition
ihould attain such a growth in the nineteenth
centary and in the United States of America —
Most oi its deluded votaries are, however, from
foreign countries. The masj of them are sincere,
bat the leaders are canning rogues, like Joe
Smith, who make the credulity of the supersti.
tioas their stock in trade. Brigbam Young, the
present head of the Mormons, is a man of conside.
rable administrative capacity, and is said to have
made a handsome fortune out of Mormouisro.
Faith in the Union.
If there is anything in the political coudnct of
that admirable journal, the National Inleliiy ncer,
which mast challenge the unqualified admiration
of both its party Iriends and foea, it is its UUi
•hrloklng and unwavering faith in the preaerva
tion of the Union. In ita whole coarse upon the
aftitating sectional questloo* of the day, it has
proved itself national in spirit at well as in name,
and in nothing more so than IU elevation above
the fears which alarm ao many minds, as well a*
the pasiiou* which agitate *o many breaaW, in re
farence to the preservation of the Union. Never
despair of the Republic," i« a maxim which guides
its discussion* of all the exciting topics of the day.
Too many of our public j Jamais and of our public
man expreas apprehensions on this subject which
tend to cmts the danger they would avert. Ev»o
masse* of men in the two sections should
be discontented and anxiom for separation, the
impoaeiblllty of separation in aoy way or shape
that would remove the causes of their discontent
•till remain*, and like a dissatisfied couple, living
under law* which do uot permit divorce, th»y
wttl find it wiser to relioqnith tbeir resentments
and live together in peace than gall their neck* in
perpetual discord under a yoke which they cannot
brsak. If any man will take a map of the Uuited
State* and ahow how It is to be divided upon tbe
slavery question—tbe only question that threatens
disunion—and what is to be done with tbe Missis
sippi river and tbe great valley which draius it,
we snail be able to form some idea of tbe process
of patting asunder that which the God of Nature
bath joined together. We ought to consider Dis
union an impossibility, and have faith enough in
the Constitution, and tbe common sense and pa
triotism of the American people, to feal aura that
•vary interest and every right of tba State* and
tbecitiivn is Ufa under the wgla of our free and
constitutional government. There baa been a
great deal of angry sectional talk, but U is a land
of freaapaach and oar countrymen are a talking

The polls in this Ward are to be kept open for

have only been about 2,600 votes polled.
trrem Klo— Shipment of Coffee for
tills Port.
We have already noticcd the arrival of the Gray
Eagle at Philadelphia, with advices from Rio to
the 19th February. By the quotations given, the
reader will have seen that Flour had advanced a
little, but it wag still considerably below the cost
of the article ia the U. States. The receipts of j
Coffee worn very light, aud prices had advanced :
luliy 250rs. on all kinds and yet more on really j
good qualities. The total exports from the Ist to j
the 19th February only 35,000 bags.
We see that the superb Bark Winifred cleared at
liio for this port on the 10th February with 4000
bags Coffee. She may be expected here daiiy.
Orjgin of Agricultural Associations-
It is stated in "Phelps' History of Progress''
that the first associations of farmers appear to
have beeu those for mutual assistance ia the ap.
preheuMou and persecution of thieves; and as they
occasionally met for the prosecution of these ob
jects, they talked of their crops and flocks, and
thus they gradually cirne to enlarge the objects of
their clubs. Judging from the number of pick
pockets at the Agricultural Fairs, the farming as»
sociations have not yet been successful in their
primary object.
Governments of Europe
Of the governments of Europe, the following are
absolute sovereignties: Turkey, Russia, Ilesse
Hamburg, two Sicilies, Mooaca, Austria, Modena>
Tuscany, States of the Church, Parma. About ono
hundred and thirty millions of Europe are under
this unlimited rule.

JP% ready, some ot those superior American
EJAWatches, that are really timekeeper*.
W which have recently been introduced to the
public. The only satisfactory proof of a good
Watch, is, th»t;it tells correctly and without Inter
ruption the true time of day. If the Watch will
not perform equally and with accuracy, it is to no
purpose whatever, that it is elaborately finished,
that piteuted devices are adapted, or that the
whole is covered by a famous name or & costly-case.
The manufacturers of these Watches are determin
ed to make time-keepers, whether th«y make money
or not. All that is asked, is a trial i.all and see
