"WEDNESDAY JULY 21, 18(19. Cincinnati and the Chesapeake. Gradually a little common aense is work ing it? way to the Ohio River cities. Cin cinnati has recently aroused herself ami shaken off the lethargy and the drowsiness of that profound slumber which followed ????<?! She i, f?"-< concerning the proposed lines som lens ci v to the South Carolina seaport and the gu States. But, like most men aroused from slumber under a sense of peril, she has at first set off in the wrong direction, course she will continue in the line for a time?until she finds out the true danger. It has for years been apparent that the lake cities were sucking away the vitalI fluu from the river cities of the Ohio. I nut t he era of Chicago the river cities grew wit i wonderful rapidity. Since then commerce has fairly rioted upon the lakes, and the river cities have been checked in their rapn progress, and for yearsWc been the un comfortable witnesses of the grc.itci | > pcrity of their rivals on the great lakes. What was the true remedy for this diver sion of commerce from the river ? It was the opening of a line of transi across the country, vpon Ihchncof ht1iU"1e with the Ohio, to the Chesapeake hay. I hat would have been the easy solution to all the troubles of the Ohio cities. It would have given them the shortest route to the sea, and one that would be open for n longer period of the year than any other. It would have secured a cheaper and aouickci tiam portation, and one active and flourishing, while that of their rivals was suspended ! Why, then, did not Cincinnati, and Louis ville, and their confederate cities, upon the very instant they read their fate in the rising wealth and power of the lake cities, direct their attention to this grand line of outlet to the sea, with all its superb advan tages ? But they arc now thinking of it, and will in time wake up fully to its great import ance. A very intelligent correspondent of the New York Times?x\ prominent citizen of Ohio, whose well-known letters, signed "A Veteran Observer." and dated at "The Beeches," have attracted much attention devotes a long missive to the schemes now projected by the Ohio River cities for in creasing their means of communication southwardly and enstwardly. At present, as we stated above, they are much absorbed with their lines southwardly, the Ob server" thinks not too highly of those lines when he says that " the whole Mississippi "Valley must trade rnainlv to southern "ports." But, then, that great valley must have a foreign commerce as well as a do mestic commerce; and how will that be car ried on to rival successfully the great lake route ? He answers in his own communi cation l?y the prominence lie gives to the great latihulinous line through the way ot lowest depression and easiest grades across Virginia to the Chesapeake bay. We quote the following reference to this route from the letter of "The Veteran Observer " In this letter  will mention only one other work which goes to effect the new movements. This is the 1 hesapcakc and Ohio railroad, of Virginia. This work has been finished several years to Covington, j near Ihc sources of James river, but the war interrupted the progress of that as it did of other enterprises. Measures have been taken by which this great road will be completed down the Kanawha to the mouth nf Big Sandy. Hence a short road through Portsmouth will connect it with t incinniiti, and another, through the interior of Ken tucky, with Lexington and Louisville. Now, you will observe that there is another road through the interior of \ irginia, which not only brings Cincinnati nearer to the inte rior, but nearer to Norfolk, than any east ern Atlantic port. But this is not all. It in seriously planned to continue the James River canal (which, by the way, did more to save Richmond in the last year ot the war than any other thing) to the Ohio and it is entirely practicable to do so and thus make by far the best water outlet from the West to the Atlan tic. Ro complete is the demonstration of its utility and profit that this canal may bo made, and not only may, but it is not too much to say it probably will be. If Vir ginia wishes to rise again to the front rank of States, this is just the way she must take. Make the railroad and tlic canal, welcome fairly all northern skill, labor, and capital, which is willing to come, and \ ir ginia will soon have four millions of peo ple. Why not ? She is still as large as New York, and she can feed more people. Norfolk is one of the best harbors in the world; and there is coal, ivon, and salt, in Virginia enough to sustain all the fac tories of the world. The song says, " Old Wirginnv never tire,' and I confess to feel enough of sympathy with licr pcoplo and destiny to wish she may not tire, but face x bo. facts of her condition honestly and eon vert the new elements in her society into elements of prosperity and glory. Virginia has nearly died of politicians ; but she can be revived and glorified by a return to com mon sense, licr great statesmen have nearly been her ruin. Abstract themes ol politics never made or saved any people. Looking to dead statesmen for hope is like a Roman beggar looking to the ruins of the Coliseum for bread." Bourboxism ox tub Chinese Question, i If wo arc not mistaken, the Norfolk Jour- j ?aal ranks as an old fogy of inveterate Bouv- j honisrn on tlie Chinese immigration ques-! tion. William, don't forget that the gods | have left the Janiculum. On the contrary, the Norfolk Virginian,: we think, was up with the times on this ; subject months ago. Hope is certainly en-; titled to be regarded as a progressive of the straightest Beet on this new movement. JFf are watching the Memphis Convention. How is the Dispatch ? We want to know, as 41 as the Dispatch goes, so goes the State." It is well to get the cue, so as to be on the laughing side this time. But let us have the cite without reference to the main chance, and upon its own merits. Speak, then, the things that become sound ! doctriuc.?Petersburg Express. It is with a deal of self-complneency that we undertake to answer the interrogatory ol the Petersburg Exjyress?a bright mem ber of the fellowship of Virginia journalists, who has for some months past, in a rather iroward manner, resisted the autocratic lodgments of the Dispatch! Live and: learn! Months ago this paper preached >everal discourses upon the subject of the ruinous c ffects of degrading the constituent body by the introduction of inferior races into the country. It argued that the degrad.i- j tion of the constituent body necessarily Ue-! gruded the representative body, IhuB im- J pairing the dignity and credit of the State, diminishing the standing of the nation in the eyes of the world, and impeding itts thrift and progress at home. Therefore we expressed a decided objection to the in troduction of any more of the inferior races into this country. We concur with the Norfolk Juur,iul in opposing the view* of the Memphis tonTcn Mon on the subject of facilitating the in troduction of Chinese intOBonthcra States. We have a better laborer in the negro, we believe,?or one who suits us better; but even if that is not po, there nrc too many nolitieal dangers attending the multiplica tion of the inferior races in this country to allow us to look upon the enterprise with the slightest favor. As slaves the inferior races may get (long remarkably well with the ( aueasian. But as political equals the commingling will most assuredly bring trouble and dis order. The State will suffer, and that sadly, from it. No reflecting man can think it desirable that either the African or Asiatic races should be brought amongst our white American race. If African were not here, would even the most enthusi astic negrophilist advocate the importing of them ? Pocs any man now advocate the establishment of immigrant ships to bring <avngc Africans to this country ? We suppose it is now settled that slavcrv (the making chattels of men and the work ing them as property) is a dead thing in ?he civilized world, at least for this age. Therefore inferior races cannot come to this country as slaves in the form recently abolished, nor in that of peonage or any other form that gives the authority over the body of the laborer. What then ? If they come, they come to be our equals, and of course, according to the "cabalistic nhrasc" of the day, they must have "the protection of the ballot.' Now, there arc well-known peculiarities of the Asiatic and African races pecu liarities which arc ineradicable. They are altogether incompatible with the disposi tions of the highest type of men. of which we may justly boast in this land. Then, why disturb the State with the disorders which would inevitably flow from their in troduction amongst us? What- do we want with them ? To labor ? Are we in such a hurry to fill up the land and cultivate it that we can't wait for the gradual increase of population ? That wc can't wait and leave the land for our own descendants, but roust bring in the infe riors to fill up the places which n wise forc eastc would leave for those descendants? Would thev not he better citizens than these inferiors? Is it this eagerness to fill up the land, or is it a desire to get others to work for us? Is labor so painful and indolence ?o sweet that wc should avoid the former and secure the latter at so great :i cost? Had wc not better go t<> work ourselves ? Would it not lie better to dignify labor and make it honorable ? Ladob! Thou guardian of a nations greatness ! Thou nurse of power and ol vir tue ! Thou who givest thews and sinews to the State?who. ever rcncwest the youth and strength of a nation?from whose nur sery and fields go forth the men who do all that is great in all the walks of life and in all the achievements of heroism? who, in addition to all thy other great bless ings, bestowest upon man the divine gifts of health and cas\- conscience?of thee, oh, Labor! shall we he ashamed? Shall we be ungrateful to tliec ? .Shall wo leave tliee (o the company of strangeis and inferiors, while we seek the vanities of indolence and attempt to gratify the palate with feasting upon the deceitful fruits which turn to dust on the lips and burn the tongue as a llamc ? When the day comes that this nation must find a kind of man differing from our leh'cn to do our work, then there is an end to all our greatness. V\ lien the time comes hat we arc unable to perform the whole round of earthly industries ordained by an dl-wisc and beneficent Creator, then we shall he unworthy amongst the nations, and mr end will be nigh at hand. That will jc an effort to preserve an existence in vio ation of divine law and the plainest die ntcs of morality and human policy, and ivc must perish in the attempt. All Right. Our friend Forney? oil! how could we ?i;et along without liim ? What would the world do without him ? Our friend Forney, wc repeat, is satisfied. Hehogglcd smartly at Virginia?doubted her, and expressed fears that a virtue for which he is distin guished (!) (sincerity) was not at the bot tom of what Virginia had done. Bur lie has seen a brighter light, and is himself illu mined. Tie is one of the best of weather cocks?his black tail, ruddy wings, and head tipped with gold?turning about to suit tbe changes of the political "trade winds ! " When lie turns we know there is " something in the wind! " Ilis last " Oc casional " letter says: " 1 have already referred to the manlier attitude of the late Southern Democracy. Tlicy are now not only in dead earnest for universal suffrage ami the fifteenth amend ment in Virginia and Mississippi, but even in Kentucky they submit to it, and sensi bly prepare for the new relations it im poses. T aui now fully convinced that Colonel Walker's course since the election in Virginia has committed the rank and file of his party to these fundamental reforms, and that this example will be irresistible in its influence upon the "Conservatives" of other southern States. Do not be misled by the allegation of some of our sensitive friends that this sanction is given under 'duress' of the conditions of the acts of reconstruction. Those acts cannot reach Kentucky, and yet see how the amendment is accepted by the leading organ of the De mocracy of that unconquerable Democratic Commonwealth!" He then quotes from the Louisville Jour nal a paragraph saying that the next elec tion in Kentucky will be the last with ne gro suffrage excluded. The fifteenth amend ment will be adopted, says the Journal, before another election, and Kentucky will have to submit or make successful war aguinst the United States?which it docs not seem to believe in. Well, it is gratifying that Forney thinks we arc in earnest. He might lmvc thought so long ago. The bit of complacency about Colonel Wai.kkk having committed the peo ple of Virginia is allowable, but a mistake. The people of Virginia committed them selves and Colonel Wai.kkk along with them. There has been no change either with the people or Colonel Wai.kkk since the campaign begun. Our friend Forney's satisfaction shows which way the wind blows, and it gives us all satisfaction. C)n-to-\V ashington. Letters and telegrams from Washington intimate that the defeated adventurers who have beseiged this State for so many weary, weary months arc now performing an "on to-Washington " in the hope of taking the Government by assault. They will employ all sorts of means to accomplish this forlorn liope. They will first attempt to prove that wc are "deceitful above all things, aud ? desperately wicked "?that ftt the late elec tion we frightened all "truly loil" people out of thoil* witn. and made them no afraid that not more than about 100,000 of tbcm had the courage to rote for Wells?that we killed a great many people on political grounds, and no disposed of them that no body has ever heard of the murders, much 1et>8 the dead bodies of the murdered?and that in our rebellious spirits wc shall one day lift up the Blue Ilidgc and set it down upon the Federal capital. Now, this will possibly go down with a goodly number of the extremist*, and there is no telling what they may propose in the way of additional penalties for the people who have carried out the reconstruc tion acts and the policy of General Grant vet repudiated Wki.ls & Co. Rut the adventurers would gain nothing by their " shocking narrative " without a "tail-piece," and this tail-piccc will be that titer, alone, are honest and fit to hold the offices of Virginia and rule the rebels. That will be "a stunner." Whoever might believe the first part, none would be lieve the "tail-piece." That will be tnore than any extremist can swallow. And we take it that the "on-to-Washington " of the ultras and plunderers will be a pitiable failure. They will be told "you make a " mistake, gentlemen ! Your stories would "have done tolerably well before the Presi dential election ; but they are out of fash ion now, and not in demand. The Con " gross cannot go to war mcreh- to give you " in Naders offices." Possibly they may in quire, " Then, where arc wc to go?" as did a defeated carpet-bagger after the late elec tion in this city. If so, like that carpet bagger, they will be informed, " Where you d?11 please." Alexandria. Va., July 10. "7? the Editors of the Richmond Dispatch : 11 Suppose General Canby should require of the members elect of the Legislature tlic ' iron-clad oath,' as it is termed, and a ma joritv should decline to take it, will not the whole scheme for the reconstruction ot the State be frustrated ? Could Governor Walker take bis scat, or a member of < on rrress be admitted, prior to the adoption ol the fifteenth amendment ? and how can this he adopted without the Legislature elect assembles ? Has General Canby any right, and where would he get his authority for se itino- the minority candidates, or persons not elected? Is there any authority any where for holding a new election ? No such can be found in the acts of Congress. Is it a fixed fact that unless the people of Vir ginia will bow in humble submission to ultra radicalism they will be refused any and all rights ? The situation has been ac cepted in good faith ; the people have done all that was asked of them. Mn-'C cannot and ought not to be demanded. Index. The reconstruction scheme would not fail because of any action General Canby might take. Governor Wat.kkk can take his seat whenever General Canby or Congress chooses to give it to him, and Congress can both allow him to do so and admit our mem bers to their scats in that body without waiting for the ratification of the fifteenth amendment. One Congress haF, of course, 110 power to bind another, nor to bind itself. So, if, at its next session, Congress should choose to admit our representatives, no one cotild object. General Canhy has no legal or moral right to put lucmbcrs into the Legislature who were mdekctcd on the (itliof July?no move than lie has to select the same number of men in this city and make of them a Legislature. Indeed, not so much, be cause all of these minority candidates have been voted ayainst, and arc therefore fraoicn not to be tit to represent the people; whevcas, a* to the men picked upon the street,it could only be said that they have not been voted for. We cannot imagine that Gene ral Canby would for a moment dream of doing so disgraceful an act, nor that the | President would allow it to be consumma ted. One of the supplementary reconstruc tion acts says: " Section 11. That all the provisions of this act and the acts to which this is sup plementary shall l.?c construed liberally, to the end that all the intents thereof may be fully and perfectly carried out." This gives General Canby power to order new elections to supply vacancies. IIow ever, our military commanders never lack power to oppress us. They always have cuough for that. It is only when we are to lie benefited that there is a lack of power. The new constitution, which determines the number of members to be elected, and their districts, also provides that the Go vernor may issue writs for elections to fill vacancies happening in recess. If the con stitution is authority as to the number of members to be elected, and as to the boun daries of the districts, and as to the qualifi cations of members, it ought to be equally as good authority in this matter. The Springs. The season in the mountains goes ahead with very great animation and activity. There were some five hundred visitors at the White Sulphur last week, and other springs were well attended. We believe there arc more guests at all the leading springs than ever before at this period of the year. There is to be a grand fancy ball at the White Sulphur on Friday night next, tor which there is extensive preparation. We suppose the railroad will put out ictuin tickets for the occasion. There have been many things operating against a full representation of fashion in the Virginia mountains this season; but, nevertheless, the extension of the railroad to the White Sulphur will probably cause a larger number of travellers in those moun tains than at any former season. The Hot Springs seems to have shot ahead finely, its numbers having reached two hundred last we^k?greatly in excess of any previous season at so early a, period. Tim Healing, too, is nourishing. The Hot has made some remarkable cures of late vcars. We met a worthy gentleman a day or two since who had been bowed with rheumatism, whose agonies lie had suffered for years, but was now restored completely, erect, and free from pain. The Hot had relieved him, and he was very happy. There is a large number in the Sweet Springs valley. The Old Sweet has an un usually large company, aud its cntcitgin uient is superb. The Sweet tbulybeate, al ways popular, is quite lively, ihe lovely l valley will have more of life and iashion ! this year than any since the war. Upon the uvcrage, the prospect is that the Springs will do very well. They deserve to be well supported, and thus far the heat of the summer seems to be conspiring for their advantage.
