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.
