WEDNESDAY....DECEMBER l-\ I860.
Admission of Virginia.
The news from Washington is that the
question of admitting the Virginia repre
sentatives has been post]>oned to Saturday.
This disappoints a large portion of the Vir
ginia ]>eople, who had been led by previous
intelligence to expect the prompt admission
of the state yesterday or to-day. We had
not looked for such a speedy accomplish
ment of the work. It is not an easy matter
to press through n deliberative body a mea
sure of great dignity where there is any
expression of a desire for delay for almost
any alleged motive. Legislators are, from
policy and from respect for the dignity of
their own proceedings, disposed to grant
time for examination and reflection to mem
bers who desire it.
For these reasons we may console our
selves for the delay. We cannot suppose,
after the proofs we have had, that Congress,
or rhe great majority, is disinclined to ad
' njit Virginia, it is stated that General
Canbt's report arrived on yesterday, and
was not printed, and that the statements
submitted to the Reconstruction Committee
had not been printed, and that for these
reasons, although the committee had de
termined to report in favor of the admis
sion of Virginia, they withheld their report
until these papers, printed, were before
them. As the ease goes over to Saturday,
it will likely be postponed to Monday, the
Senate hardly ever sitting on Saturday.
We have not a doubt of the early admis
sion of the Virginia representatives, and
while we regret the temporary delay we
are not surprised at it.
The New York Times (Grant Repub
lican) expresses its own feelings on the sub
ject thus:
"Every day's delay in the case of Vir
ginia is a day's injustice. And any recon
struction wnich leaves disabilities in its
track is a work unliuislied."
The'Contrast.
"Wo have enjoyed charming, bright, ge
nial weather for nearly three weeks, while
interior navigation nt the North has been
suspended by ice. During the sitting here
of the National Board of Trade its members
were da'.ly telegraphed about the severity
of the weather, the storms, the. stoppage of
trains, and freezing of the waters, and the}
walked lorth into the pleasant atmosphere
and the bright sunshine, and wondered at
the contrast here presented to the frigid
temperature which enveloped their own
homes. , ,
At the North more than half the volume
of transportation from the West to the East
has been for all that time stopped. We
read of hundreds of boats locked up in Hie
ice on the way. Here we have not had a
" skim " of ice. There already the frost in
other respects is embarrassing the labors of
man. Here there has been no obstruction
rvftn to out-door work. The farmer's
ploughs have steadily run, preparing his
fields for the spring seeding. There the
ground has been so hard-frozen that
ploughing was out of the question.
What wonder is it, then, that both the
Northwest and Southwest are looking to
this middle latitude, so favorable to the la
bors of man? The conditions of the past
restrained the measures and enterprises
for the concentration of commerce and
great works upon this middle latitude,
where transportation is not obstructed by
frosts, and where man sutlers no abatement
of his energies from the heats of summer.
But those conditions no longer exist.
It is pleasant to contemplate the future
of the cities, the lands, the water-power,
and the vast mineral riches, of the country
embraced in this just middle line. Nature
has with lavish hand dispensed her richest
blessings upon it. The temperature is the
most favorable, the lands are fertile, the
mineral deposits in the earth arc those
which, in the highest degree, promote the
growth and power of a nation, and the
water-power is wonderful for its abundance
and its distribution in every part of the
country; and yet to all these we can add
beauty and grandeur of scenery and an un
exampled variety of mineral waters, whose
efficacy iu disease is celebrated throughout
the nation.
It would be hard for a man to go to the
degree of extravagance in foretelling what
activity, what enterprise, what thrift, what
rapid addition will be made to the wealth
and power of the State in this favored i egion.
The Chesapeake bay must receive all that
part of this vast commerce which is destined
for export or coastwise shipment. The
Virginia waters will teem with shipping,
a lid the Virginia cities will flourish in a
manner that will exceed the most sail-.
guinc expectations. In all departments of |
industry and trade there will be a degiee ol
prosperity, and the whole country will pre
sent a scene of animation and opulence that
the imagination can hardly exceed.
That these predictions will come to pass,
no reflecting man can doubt.
Mill on Chinese.
Excited to comment by an article in the
New York Tribune, Jlr. John Stuart Mill
writes a letter on the subject of the intro
duction of Chinese into this country. His
opinions are that their very great immigra
tion here must so diminish wages as to re
duce to a lower stage of physical comfort
the population we have. Lowering labor
in this way cannot have, he thinks, any
eventual effect, of raisiug its price; and
hence he argues that in such a case the ex
clusion of the immigrants would he justi
fied, as but temporary good would be done
to the overcrowded Chinese, and perma-1
nent harm to us. But there is a worse effect
than this to be apprehended. It is from
labor that the social and political life of the
nation is replenished and reinvigorated. If
we trust labor to inferior races, how can 1
? that life be so replenished ? It is a great
mistake to seek such races to do our work.
The nation that does it is making a great
? trouble for itself. That nation must ever
be strongest and greatest whose laboring
class belongs to the highest type of man
kind. _
The Suez Canal.?The large northern
dailies contain voluminous accounts of the
opening of the Suez canal, the chief par
ticulars of which were published a month
since in cable news. The English press arc
at ill disparaging the canal, and pronounce
it a failure. Yet, as the Tribune states it,
" M. de Lebsees's various intimations that
" his canal is not in wan^of fund?, that his
" fiu ther work upon it will not impede ua-1
" vigution. and that, despite the yet uncon
"iradicted statement that several vessels
" have grounded in it, thirty thousand tons |
* have parsed through it in ten days, are
" guarantees of the sturdy enterprise with
"which he pursues what is no longer a J
" dream." ? I
Ccstom-Housb FraupsYn New York.?|
For n long time rumors have been thick and
heavy ot custom-house frauds in New York j
thai were to lie exposed, involving men ofj
1- ga standing in commercial circles. These
prediction* are rather slow of fulfilment;
r nt they continue to be circulated. The
New iQl'k Times of Monday buys: "The
*' reports cottfifcrniug the extent to which
" custom-house frauds have been carried on
" in this city are rapidly gaining consistency.
?'It is said that some very large and wcll
" known commercial firms will be eompro
" miscd by the forthcoming revelation", and
'?it will be proved that the Government has
'? been defrauded of a prodigious amount of
"money." ' -

An American Family in Pari?. With Fifty
Kight Illustrations of Historical Monu
ments and Familiar Scenes. New York :
Ill'KD & HOUOHTON.
This is ? imok whose information is con
veyed very much in child's talk, with a
sprinkling of French. It is not very bright
or very lively, as might be supposed, and its
greatest merit is its very excellent pictures.
These are admirably drawn, and as faith
fully transferred to the plates. The print is
also excellent, and altogether it will be quite
instinctive and interesting to both old and
young.
Ttro Lives in One. By Viecx Moustache,

A very interesting little story, by an au

Bound to John Company; Or, The Au'ven

A story located partly in England and
partly in India, apparently wrought with
talent and spirit. The author's name not
given.
White and lied: A Narrative of Life
among the Northwest Indians. By IIkeen
(J. Weeks, Author of "The Ain'slec Sto
ries" and "Grandpapa's House." New
York : Herd & Houghton.
This narrative is intended for young peo
ple. Tills is a style of imparting informa
tion thai is excellent. We cannot speak of
the success of this author, as we have not
read her book ; but whenever any writer
gives to the public a book which affords
knowledge of the inhabitants of foreign
lands?theis habits and customs?the ani
mals of those countries?the sports and
perils that mark the life of man in them
he does a great service to mankind. Such
narratives quicken the youthful intellect,
sharpen its inquisitive temper, and give it
strength, more than any other kind of
books that can be put into the hands of
children.
The Odes and Epodes of Horace. A Me
trical Translation into English. "With In
troduction and Commentaries. By Loan
Lyttox. With Latin Text from the edi
tions of Orelli, Macleane, and Yonge,
New York : Harper & Brothers.
This is a valuable contribution to classic
literature. The metrical translations are
more fltithful than metrical. The author
has, not like Pope in the Iliad, broken
away from the text, and made poems of hi?
own ; but, following the original, he has
made such harmony as the intention of
sticking as closely as possible to the text
would permit. It is a groat gratification to
have such a translation of the " charming"
Horace, the most beloved and oftenest
quotecV by the scholars of all the Latin
lyrists.
Old Horse Grey and the Parish of Grumble
?ton. By Edward Hopper. New York
Hurd A: Ho ran ton.
This poem is dedicated to Mr. BERGn, of
New York, the great hero who devotes his
life to the protection ot " dumb animules
from cruelty. The poet's old grey, how
ever, seems to be a neglected old parson.
If Mr. Bergtt can in no more forcible man
ner arouse the public sympathy in behalf
of the objects of bis solicitude they will be
not much benefited by him. Much very
good print and paper from the " ltiverside "
press is wasted here.
Ting-a-Ling. By Frank Stockton. New
York : Hurd & Houghton.
An illustrated book of fable, of last year's
issue, revised and enlarged. Ting-a-Ling
is the Fairy hero under whose auspices the
several stories are told. They are thorough
going fables. The work is beautifully
irinieu.
')ld Testament Shadows of Xcic Testament
Truths. By Lyman Abbott, Author of
" Jesus of Nazareth : llis Life and Teach
ings," &c. TVitli Designs l.?y 1)ork. Dela
roche, Durham, and Parsons. New
York : Harper & Brothers.
Tins work is superbly engraved and
irinted. What Mr. Lyman Abbott does
or it of course is very bold and indepeud
snt. He is an intrepid author, who prac
.ilizes the "life" and "teachings" of
Christ to suit the age of progress, and we
:anuot tell what he may do t% utilize the
lacred "shadows" of the Old and New
Testament. Mr. Abbott's thoughts are
nost comfortably and elegantly laid in
sheets of exquisite letter-press. It is a beau
tiful Christmas present.
All the above works are for sale by Messrs.
Bates & Waddy Brothers.
Ticisted Threads. By M. D. Nauman,
Author of " Sidney Elliott." Philadel
phia : G'laxtox, KemsenA JIaffklfingek.
We do not remember " Sidney Elliott,"
and do not know anything of Mr. Naumax's
talents. He lias selected a capital name for
a novel, and in proportion as his thread is
twisted will it likely be popular. The pub
lishers are new to the publishing world, but
they are sending out some very well-printed
books.
For sale by George L. Bidgood.
The Southern Planter and The Fanner s
Gazette, for December, are both on our ta
ble. Both are highly interesting to the
farmer, and both have official lists of pre

jJSTPREPARATORY MEDICATION.
The human system, the most deUcntc and sensi
tive of all created things, should be duly pre
pared to meet the shock occasioned by a sudden
change In the temperature of the air. Even the
solid metals contract aud expand under cold and
beat?so that If man were composed ol'Iron. In
stead of frail tissues and fibres, circulating fluids,
and brittle osseous matter, bis frame would not
be proof against the vicissitudes of climate. As
It Is, It behooves every one, especially the feeble,
to fortify the frail tenement of mortality against
the Inclemency of the present season. A whole
some, strength-supplying vegetable tonic and al
terative Is the preparatory medicine requlrcdvaud
among medicinal agents of this character I10S

of a century the preparation has never been equal

than those of any half dozen articles, purporting
to belong to the same class, that have ever been
ad^ ertlscd In this country. As a remedy and pre
ventive of Dyspepsia, and all Its complications.
It maybe said to have lived down ?competition
and to be the standard specific of the Western
Hemisphere. A course of this genial restora

safeguard against all the complaints which arc
