ffichnuffld gisgatdt. MONDAY-- - APRIL 6, 1868. ?no The Turning Out and Putting Li. Th. work rfTb^lnTi.l~I? matter how or why-the toing cooformi.y toan. no?ul'e> from ""><"? tbc ch*n?? ? ?nd c?on?b- Thls on?ht 10 b.ve foreroen by aH. They.roin conformity with the "logic of events." tre confess to some surprise that Go Trroor Pkirpoint has gone off, like St. Penis, with his head under his arm. We considered that -probably his was the only office which would not be brought under the demand for revolution. He was an ??iron-clad," and had done enough, every body supposed, to keep in the good graces of the dominant party. He adopted its policy nn? its faith out and out. He j had even carried his zeal to the extent of, deploring the disloyalty of the churches, j and setting on foot measures to purify southern piety by making it more in ac cordance with the reconstruction laws! The Rev. Mr. Mitchell, chaplain of the Convention, and the guest of the Govern ment House, was deputed to carry out this labor of love?this work of purifying the worship of a people who at their altars had forgotten the flag and the 4*life of the nation" in a wayward abstraction about their eternal salvation. In this Governor PEiRroisT had signalized his devotion to the politico.religious faith of the Republi can party, and especially merited the approbation of the Simon-pures of the TTiLSO.v-BorTWELL-FARNHAM wing of the ruling power. If Governor Peirtoint had in this way entitled himself to the reward of Radical approbation he had, on the other hand, done some acts of kindness towards the State and the prostrate Confederates, just after the war, that deserved their grateful remembrance. We are clear for award ing him this meed of praise. He did much that entitles him to gratitude. Unfortu nately, he allowed his course to be chec kered subsequently by a divided and equivocal manifestation both of policy and sentiment that impaired his standing on both sides. His last year's stump cam paign was damaging to himself and benefi cial to none. His incertitude and wavering has proba bly ended in his removalfor something is evidently at fault* behind the scenes. He is a man of good, kind disposition and much practical good sense, and not a great deal of decision of character. This is a sort of obituary of the dis tinguished Governor, as it well may be; for he dies by the sword, and will not soon be resurrected. "We rather like the Governor, and desire that he may be well in the world; but we cannot say that we arc much moved by the events which send him to the delight ful precincts of Fairmont, with its green tields and lovely prospects. .We should think it rather a blessing than an affliction to be turned out of office and retired to such a paradise. When Governor JPeir fuixt compares his fate with that of his unhappy comrades in banishment from office, he may well return thanks in hymns of joy for the kind dispensation which re lieves him from the office of Governor of Virginia at a time like this, and permits him to eDjoy the bright scenes,' greeD meads, and sweet waters of Marion. Fare well, Governor! In the filling the places which he vacates General Schofield seems to exercise his best judgment. The appointments are the best, we suppose, that can. well be made under the iron-clad" oath. That they will afford entire satisfaction to the Republi can party in this city we have no idea; but that will not be at all to the. discredit of General Schofield. We apprehend a howl from Hunnicntt Hall. The prophet of that conclave of sable spirits will pro bably put forth a new jeremiad on the sub ject of *' copperhead " promotions. But Hunnicutt is doomed. The sword is at bis throat. It is not all disagreeable to us, cor, in deed, should it be to atfy one, that there is now a forward movement in the line of policy established'by the dominant party. It augurs a more expeditious march through the wilderness in which we now wander, and a more speedy arrival in the country of rest, order, and peace. The offices must be in Radical hands, and the presidential election must be over, before can hail this happy day. The Reason fob the Removal of Go vernor Peirpoint.?General Schofield's order appointing Mr. Wells Governor as sumes that Governor Peirpoint could not have served another term under the Con stitution of Virginia. The General means, we suppose, not that the letter but that the spirit of ihe Constitution excludes him. The General's construction of the Consti tution, right or wrong, is the one that will prevail; and as all the Radical proceed ings in Virginia and elsewhere in the Sou^th are admitted to be outside of the Federal Constitution, it is hardly worth while to trouble ourselves as to the consti tutionality, under our own organic law, of any act of our military masters. Indeed, it is a mere burlesque to pretend that the Alexandria Constitution is the Constitu tion of Virginia in any other sense than the reconstruction laws are laws of Vir ginia. But, conceding that the Alexandria Constitution is in force, then Governor Peirpoint is, according to our construc tion of it, eligible to election under it. That instrument was adopted since bis ? election as Governor, and by a Bpecial pro vision iu the schedule accompanying it continued him in office until the end of his term. His term expired on the Slst day of December last- He has never been elected under the Constitution, and there* fore it cannot be that be is ineligible.. The same Constitution provides that no man can be Governor of Virginia who has not been a " citizen" of the State for five years. General Wells been in the State for five or six years; but ho could not become a citizen in the sense in wbcb the word is employed in the Constitution j so long as he remained In the Federal army. Therefore he has not been a citizen fpt five years, and is of course ineligible to the governorship, while Governor Peirpoint is not ineligible. The New Governor of Virginia. " The king Is dead." " Long live the king." "The king never?diet," "Time runs against the king." The' first sentence applies to our good friend Governor Peir point. The second to. General Wklls. The third to the office. The fourth to General Schofield, who has appointed a man Governor who has not been a " citi zen" of Virginia for five years. Hrnry H. Wells is about forty.two years of age. Ho was born in the State of New York, but removed while young to Detroit, Michigan. We know not where lie received his education; bat he studied i law cnder Hon. J. M. Howard, now 'one of the United States Senators from Michigan. He practiced his profession successfully in Detroit. He also entered political life, and was several times elected to represent that city in the Legislature of Michigan.' He was the presiding officer of the House .it the session of 1855-'6. He was a Whig at first, but became a Republican years before the war. Upon the breaking out of the war he entered the military service. One of our informants says he was a cavalry officer, and another that he was colonel of the First Michigan regiment of infantry ; but we incline to credit the statement of a Radical contemporary that he was lieu tenant-colonel of the Twenty-sixth Michi gan infantry. In 1863 he was appointed Provost-Marshal General of the defences south of the Potomac, with headquarters at Alexandria. In April, 1863, while act ing as such officer, he sold out his posses sions in Detroit, and removed with his Jamily to Alexandria, where he' has ever since resided. It is said that a mission to Italy was ten dered to Mr. Wells by President Fill more. At any rate, he was a lawyer of good standing at home, and has main tained a good reputation at the bar since his removal to Virginia. His practice is said to have been quite a large one at Alexandria, and quite a lucrative one also in Jadge Underwood's court in this city. In this respect, as well as in the fact that he is a man of good family, good character, good repufation, and good education, he differs from the northern adventurers who are known as " carpet-baggers." His in terests are now the interests of Virginia, and he is not supposed to be as rabid a Republican as some others. Nevertheless, he is fully committed to negro suffrage. In 1865 he was invited by a delegation of " loyal" men to accompany them to Wash ington to see Mr. Johnson upon party busi ness, but declined to do so in the following sharp letter: - " Albxaxdbia; Va., June 21, 1665. ?' My Dear Sir,?I have the honor to ac knowledge the receipt of your note inviting ine to accompany a committee of loyal citizens of Virginia in a call upon the President of the United States. My official duties deny me that pleasure, but 1 cannot forego the oppor tunity of expressing my earnest sympathy in the-movement you are inaugurating. "Very soon after the fall of Richmond I became aware thatjnany of the leading secessionists, despairing of resisting by force of arms the power of the Government or the mighty logic of events which was soon to make Virginia truly free, had determined to attempt by policy what force could not do. Therefore it was that, soon after that event, these per sons,*ih considerable numbers, and with such concert as to indicate a common purpose, ap peared and took the oath of allegiance. ?? An election of members of the Legislature was soon to be held, and among those who announced themselves as candidates were some who had uniformly refused to take the oath, and preferred to lose their property and be separated from their families rather than to acknowledge the supremacy of the Go vernment of the United States. Two years of duty here, and such general acquaintance as it brought, taught me that an oath of alle giance was not conclusive evidence of loyalty, out that it was nearly worthless, unless ac companied by consistent conduct and loyal acts, and no surprise was felt when, on count ing the vote, it was found that these gentle men were elected by large majorities to repre sent the people in a State Government whose legal existence they had positively denied, and for whose overthrow some of them had withiii one year plotted and conspired. No one for a moment misunderstood their design, for it was too palpable, and too frequently admitted by the less discreet, to leave room for doubt. With the Legislature in the hands of these men, the calling of a constitutional conven tion whioh would repeal the present and re store the old Constitution would be a work of short time and little labor, but very sad in its consequences both to the white and black man. ?' The country is to-day in a most disturbed condition. The rights of property are not re spected ; the man whose fidelity to the Go vernment has never been questioned is told by men fresh from the ranks of the enemy that Virginia will soon furnish him no home ; that its boundaries are not broad enough; that there is no room for the 'Yankee' or those who helped to -carry on 'the Yankee war.' The colored man, who was held worthy to bear arms, and did fight bravely, finds no protection, peace, or security, except when in the immediate presence of a military force, and not always even then. This is all wrong, and you are In danger of losing the very things for which the war has been prosecuted ; you may theorize and speculate to the contrary, but the facts remain, and the only wise course is to admit their existence and provide the remedy. "And what is that remedy? It is, In my judgment, to establish a military provisional government, to locate a sufficient military force to preserve peace, command respect, and secure order. In other words, to vindi cate the suprmutcy of the law. Then disfran chise those who are not loyal, making loyal acts, and not a paper oath, the test of loyalty. This done, create a perpetual balance of power, which will at all times secure you from political danger; or, more plainly, let the negro vote. He has fought?-let him enjoy the fruits of victory which he helped to win; and in extending the elective franchise to him it is done not because he is a negro, but because he is a free native-born citizen of the United States, twenty-one years of age, of sound mind, who has always been and now is faith ful to his Government, obeying all the laws of the State; and every man, white or black, who has such a record ought to vote. It is true there is a prejudice?an old prejudice? against such a measure; but, then, it is only a prejudice, and not an argument, and should be weighed as such. "I am, very respectfully, " Your most obedient servant, "H. H. Wbi.i.8. "To S. F. Beach, Esq., President Virginia Union Association." Considering that this letter was written at a time when not even one man in a do-' zen in Congress would have dared to come out in. favor of negro suffrage, it may be taken as proof positive that Governor Wells is either a man who has his own opinions, and is not afraid to avow them, or a fanatic of the real Boston type. Wo pre fer to believe that he is the former. But whether he is to be considered'as better or worse than Governor Peirpoixt, we can not say, though we are free to confess that we think these Yankees are "mighty on sartain" folks. ? It is of coarse calculated that the ap pointment of Governor Wells gives him the inside track in the race between him and Hunnicutt for the office of Governor under the new Constitution. We applaud General Schofield for thus throwing the weight of his influence, in favor of a gen tleman, The Alexandria State Journal has already come out warmly in favor of the General for our next Governor; and we may expect to see his party grow rapidly now, while HuUnicutt's will be confined to the negroes. Mexico.?The following statement of the tenor of last advices from Mexico might have sufficed as a true condensation of the news from that distracted country for thirty years past. A journal might keep it as a standing telegram, sod save money, on the Mexican news. It will be always right until the United States interposes, and then Mexico will be " fixed ": " Our late news from the Mexican re public shows that affairs in that unfortu nate conntrv are more terribly mixed than ever?involved, indeed, in difficulties the end of which cannot be foreseen unless the termination shall be found in a hope less chaos." _ The Court Uniform. The ultra demagogues of this land who are gathered now into the Radical party, ! among their many hypocritical acts merely for party effect, passed some two winters since a resolution in effect prohibiting min isters of the United States from appearing officially at foreign courts in the dress prescribed by such courts. Mr. Adams, our minister to England, has lately been missed on two occasions in the brilliant assemblies drawn together by the reappear ance of Queen Victoria in such scenes after her long seclusion. In the language of the Court Journal, " the United States envoy was absent from unavoidable cir cumstances! " Anarchists are always horrified at form. The French revolutionists were most spiteful in their malice towards ceremo nies and titles, and in lieu of form's intro duced anarchy and the guillotine. Forms may bo carried to excess ; but they are indispensable in civilized and virtuous society. The court ceremonies are essen tial for the preservation of dignity and order?the main supports of authority. The court dress is prescribed to keep up distinctions on State occasions, and sub serves a useful purpose as well as adds to the imposing character of the courtesies hnd civilities of rulers and high officials. It is both churlish and vulgar in any Go vernment to prohibit its representatives from conforming to rules prescribed for such occasions by foreign sovereigns. "We don't know any people who are more prone to finery and pomposity than the shoddy and other millionaires in this coun try, who have sprung up like mushrooms, and who have so often caused the cheeks of the intelligent American to burn with shame for the vulgarity they have exhibit ed at foreign courts. With such obtru siveness, bad taste, and ignorance, as are often displayed by these persons, it looks strange to the reflecting European that their Government should require its repre sentatives not to conform to the court etiquette of the Governments to which they are accredited. THE VIRGINIA CONVENTION ORDERED BY CONGRESS TO FRAME A STATE CONS3*TUTION. Ninety-fourth Day. Saturday, April 4, 1868. ? The Convention met at 11 o'clock. Prayer by the chaplain. SIMEON OF OLD AND Lf,"\ AL ORPHANS PRO PERTY. Mr. Lydick offered the following : " Whereas there were many true, uncon ditional and patriotic loyal men of this State, like good Simeon of ancient aDd profiter times, when they saw the salvation of this great nation : said ' letest now thy servant depart in peace for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, gave up tho goust and were gathered to their fathers,' be it there fore "Resolved That the property both per sonal and real of the orphans of all sueh true loyal men throughout this common wealth be exempt from taxation." Laid on the table. BASIS OF REPRESENTATION. The Committee on the Bisis of Appor tionment reported upon the paragraphs of tho second section recommitted to them, and recommended that the original report be adopted. The committee also reported that they had overlooked Petersburg, and recom mended that that city be allowed one senator. This recommendation was adopt ed. The remaining paragraphs were adopted, as follows: Rockbridge, Bath, and Alleghany, one sena ator; Botetourt, Roanoke, Craig, and Giles, one; Montgomery, Floyd, and Patrick, one; Grayson, Carroll, and Wythe, one ; Pulaski, Bland, Tazewell, and Russell, one; Lee, Scott, Wise,and Buchanan, one; Washington and Smyth, one. A substitute, offered by Mr. Winston to the last six paragraphs of the" report, giving seven senators instead of six to the southwestern district, was lost. ENTER WILSON. Pending the discussion on this report, Wilson (Henry) came into the hall. Mad dox moved that he be invited to take a seat on the* stand. The motion was car ried?not without dissenting voices, how ever. Hine, who was in the chair, said: " The motion is carried. Let the gentle man come up." A rebel reporter, in a spirit of kindness, said : " What 1 let one of the boss dogs in the Radical tan-yard walk up to the chair without a commit tee ?" The Chair took the hint, and ap pointed John Hawxhurst and Charles Porter a committee to escort Henry to the chair. In the mean time the aforesaid John had been nudgiDg the elbows of the un willing Henry in a most persuasive man ner. Henry finally yielded, and was walk ing up the aisle under the protecting wings of Honest John when (W)Hink an nounced the body-guard. Charles afore mentioned, was announced too late, so that Henry and John reached the speak er's stand without his assistance. Here Henry was left by Honest John, and taken in charge by John of the judiciary, who entertained him duriDg most his stay. MONEY MATTERS, * A communication from General Seho fleld concerning money matters was read. The ordinance was approved, with the ? qualification that tho per diem of the Con vention be paid in the manner provided by the ordinance up to the 6th of April, and no longer ; the certificates of indebtedness to be prepared for issue as soon as practi cable;-the certificates being prepared, the General will fix the day after which certificates sh^ll be received in payment of liabilities due the State, and also the day when they shall be redeemed at the office of the State Treasurer, The communication was received, and a motion to lay on the table and print was lost. A motion to return it disapproved was not entertained. The Convention then adjourned, after an announcement that Henry had declined to speak, in accordance with a motion to' invite him to do so.
