FRIDAY..** MARCH 11$ 1870.
Complaints all Around. ? The Lynchburg Viryiman 1ms not paid up oft for the recent reference in the Dis patch to the " Pilgrim's Progress "?the scries of begging expeditions of pilgrims to Ha It i more?begging for help from the Cio vernrocnt of the Monumental City to build railroads in the heart of Virginia, and even on her southern border, on the ground that they were to take away from Virginia cities to Hnltimore enough commerce to reward her for the investment of millions in the aforesaid roads. Our friend of that paper might have rested satisfied with his first sharp rebuke: but, unfortunately for us, somebody in Baltimore has quoted what we said, and we are again doused with his in dignation. Now. the acts of the "pilgrims" have no: excited much state pride, and nothing but success can compensate for the presen tation of the State in just the attitude thev presented her in. Hut we beg pardon of the 1 'iryinhm and our friends the "pil grims"?wc erv your mercy, all* of you, and ask leave to "drap it." The less we lliiuk of it the better. In connection with its second phillipic regarding the "pilgrims," the Virginian is sharp upon Richmond?as being very self- J i.-h. Well, Richmond has contributed as much to build the roads of the State as all the four next largest towns in the State, and she gave 8100.000 to the Virginia and Ten nessee railroad. Vet, while no other city save Lynchburg contributed a cent to that load, a scheme for a straight road to Nor folk. to be consolidated with the Tennessee load, was concocted and accomplished mainly by Lynchburg; and this city, paying as much for that straight Toad as all the four cities alluded to, wa6 left by it in the cold, and had to take her thances, under the disadvantage of being switched off, for trade and transportation upon it. She is left with no single straight line running westwnrdly. She has lost much trade by the fact: while what she lias lost has not gone to other Virginia cities, lmt has been lost to the State. The largest city has been denied the straight lines secured to the smaller ones. How has nIic been selfish ? If she has been, she has hud a strange way of showing it. We arc accused of being especially jealous of Baltimore. This wc do not admit. We appeal to our columns to prove that we have awarded to that city the high est praise for her enterprise and forccastc. W e have rebuked the apprehensions of our own people about the influence of Balti more. Wc told them that they had but to bo true to themselves to succeed: that it was not in the power of one city to defeat the prosperity of another in this country, teeming everywhere with commerce. We called attention to examples : To Philadel phia, which, it was thought, would be dwarfed to a one-horse town by the great power of New York, and, secondly, to Bal timore, which in turn was to fall under the malign influence of Philadelphia, and lin ger in apathy and dullness oil the Pntnpsco. Loth t.f these towns have flourished nobly, show ing that for every hundred miles there m trade enough from the West and South to build cities of great magnitude. So Rich mond may be the next in succession on the Atlantic tide if she hut emulates the ex amples which wc have so often held up before her. lite I iryiiibin is mistaken. It was another press that has kept Baltimore as a v.hetstunc for its keenness. We would imt lay Virginia ui her feet; but we do not entertain an illiberal sentiment towards Iter. While Fettling accounts we refer to a (?"iinccting link in the chain of these coin j l iints. The Richmond 11 ~hbj of vester ? 'ay gives credit for benefits conferred upon Ki.liiuoud to the Consolidated Line, as it is j leased to term the ^outhside railroads, which are not yet consolidated, though having the saiue Luun for president of all ? f them. It is true that before (leneral M Alios k was president tlicrc was a d end-set made at Richmond by the Southsidc lines; the hostility was undisguised and hitter. General Ma. M'?nk has changed all this, and we 1'i'lievc is fair in his regulations of trans-' j'ortatiou towards Richmond as he can be ; but his roads are not working especially in the interest of Richmond, and should not. Therefore, what Richmond gets from the H tuUisidc lines is from the force of her own attractions as a market and a manufactur ing city. Indeed, she receives this trade in spite of the disadvantage of heiug switched oft at an elbowed junction of that straight line which was built for Norfolk. We ac knowledge General Ma honk's fairness to Richmond; but there is not a particle of credit due to the idea of consolidation for the freight that comes to this city in spite of the elbowed switch and of the dispatch given to through freights to Norfolk. We are not opposing consolidation ; but we would deplore any such delusion us would induce a landed security for Rich mond in anything else thau a straight road t-> Lynchburg, and the transportation of passengers from that city to Richmond iu three hours. And now let us make friends, gentlemen, all around?north and south side. Let by gones be by-goncs. Trade and transporta tion are in a fair way for compacting themselves with reference to the mainte nance of the integrity of the interests of Virginia. There will he a road down Jatnes river from Cliftou Forge to Lynchburg, and a straight road from Lynchburg to Rich mond, and Ave shall all be in one consoli dated family of enterprising and flourish ing towns. The central line of communi cation from the Ohio to the Virginia tide will enrich us all, and the great trade of the South and Southwest will cause all our vases to run over with wealth, and Virginia will become the empire State. A contemporary is endeavoring to arouse Mr. FK.NDLfcTON's resentment by assuming that he is compromised by the action upon the resolutions of inquiry relative to the (outruet with the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company introduced by him in the 'Senate. Wo conjecture that Mr. I'kn j>;,i:Tdtf can hardly be tired by that sort of Ljndling wood;. When lie offered the reso lutions--he intimated that he did so to oblige oihsiiti\ assuming himself no further responsibility for them. They were inves tigated. by the committee-?a part of the in vestigation being in secret session, In that -estdofl, however, everything pertinent to I the subject of inquiry- wma foirty and squarely laid before tUocomnu&eo, and the conclusions of that body were arrived at after full consideration.,-How Mr. Pkn pi.KTOn was compromised we cannot bcc. The committees of tho Legislatnrc arc not courts of justice, and may hold their pro ceeding in secret whenever thev deem pro per. There is, therefore, nothing in thnt to enrage Mr. Pendleton *, and we suspect j he knows all he wants to know as to what was done in secret council: and, after all, the report of the committee states tlmt a copy of the much-discussed contract is en closed in the report. Then what becomes of your 44 secrecy " ? Count Bismarck and thk University of Virginia.?Upon being informed of the wants of the new Chair of Applied Mathe matics in the University of Virginia, Count Bismarck, in his capacity as Chancellor of the North German Confederacy, has pre sented that institution with a most costly and useful collection of photographic and engraved designs of recent Government works in Germany. Tbey comprise draw ings of all the modern improvements ap plied to bridges, canals, railways, and pub lie buildings. The presentation was made through the agency of Dr. L. J. Bokuk, Professor of Applied Mathematics and Civil Engineering in tho scientific depart ment of the University. The final location of the capital of West Virginia at Charleston, Kanawha, is a very wise measure. The meeting of its repre sentatives there will have a good effect upon the public character of this new State. The Valley of the Kanawha is the liberal region of the State. There is much sunshine of geniality and a comprehen siveness of views and feelings which arc not generally perceivable along the north ern border; and when the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad is finished we shall have in timate intercourse with the Western Go vernment ; which, considering the nature of our relations, will be highly advantage ous to both States. It is. we learn, settled that one of the Virginia line of iron steam packets will soon be in course of construction. It will, more than probably, be built in this city by the Tredegar Manufacturing Company. Drawings are in preparation for the begin ning of the work. Hoity-Toity.?The Journal of this city conjectures that Porter resents 44 being shelved in Mr. Wiuttkmoke's pigeon-hole."' Poor Whit. Tlis fate is hnrd. He might have been spared the contumely of Porter ! We hope the Dispatch has. unwittingly, done Mr. Faulkner injustice.? W'inchcstii' Times. [Not so. Our information was not second hand.

The report pet forth thftt the accused had offered no rebutting evidence, and had acknowledged the charges to bo true. The committee being of the opinion that drunk enness and disorderly conduct outside the House was not sufficient cause for expulsion, but believing that such conduct should not pass unnoticed, recommend that IV. H. Andrew he brought before the bar of the House and be reprimanded by the Speaker for conduct unbecoming a member of the House of Dolegntcs of Virginia. Mr. PornxM, believing that the reading of the report in the hearing of the member from Surry was sufficient punishment for the offence, moved that it ho laid on the table. Agreed to. ALEXANDRIA, LOUDOUN AND HAMPSHIRE RAILROAD.

Mr. Thomas replied t0 the argument of Mr. Stub us; after which the amendments proposed by the latter were rejected. The bill "as amendedj was then ordered to be engrossed for a third reading. OATHS OF OFFICE. dn motion of Mr, Bell, of Augusta, the substitute proposed by the House Commit tee on Courts of Justice for the Senate bill No. 11, prescribing oaths of office, was then taken up out of its order. After debate by Messrs.

The bill as passed is as follows : "1. Whereas the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States de clares that ' no person shall be a senator or representative in Congress, or elector of President or Vice-President, or bold any office, civil or military, under the I nitcd States or under any State, who, having pre viously taken an oath as a member of Con gress,*or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State Legislature, or as nu executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in in surrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof '; and whereas the third clause of the first section of the third article of the Constitution of Virginia declares that ' no person who, while a citizen of this State, lias, since the adoption of this Constitu tion, fought a duel with a deadly weapon, either within or beyond the boundaries of this State, or knowingly conveyed a chal lenge, or aided or assisted in any manner in fighting a duel, shall be allowed to vote or hold any office of honor, profit, or I trust, under this Constitution'; and whereas section six of article three of the Constitution of Virginia requires all persons before entering upon the dis charge of any functions as officers of this State to swear or affirm that they will sup port and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States and the Constitu tion and laws of the State of Virginia; and whereas, in the opinion of the General Assembly, the oath of office prescribed in the Constitution of Virginia embraces within its scope all of the requirements aforesaid ; therefore 44 1. li<' it enacted hi/ the General Astsem /<///, That all persons before entering upon the discharge of any functions as officers of this State shall take and subscribe the fol lowing oath or affirmation: " ' 1, , do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States and the Constitution aud laws of the State of Virginia; that 1 recognize and accept the civil aud political equality of all mcu before the law, and that 1 will faith fully perform the duty of to the best of my ability.

The Tax on Tobacco?Opposition to Reduction and Advoeacy of I'ni form Tax?Arguments Closed before the Ways and Menus Committee. Washington, March 9.?The Committee on Ways and Means bad a protracted ses sion to-day, the entire time being consumed in discussing tie merits of the proposed changes in the revenue law concerning to bacco. Tlicy first heard the views of H. W. Hunt, President of the Pioneer Tobac co Manufacturing Company, of Brooklyn, New York, who represented ulso the firm of Buchanan & Lyall, of that city, both plug tobacco manufacturers, and who paid con jointly last year nearly $1,200,000 taxes on manufactured and sold goods. He opposed the reduction of the tax on plug tobacco, and argued in favor of a uniform tax of thirty two cents per pound on all manufactured tobacco. He claims the interests of the plug manufacturer were not represented bv the committee of the National Associa tion at all. On the other hand, it was shown that the fax on smoking tobacco of sixteen centB per pound was an unjust dis crimination in favor of the consumer, while for the poorer quality of plug tobacco they were taxed thirty-two cents per pound. The proposed modifications of the law suggested by the delegates from the Na tional Association, concerning striking the names of manufacturers from the notice label, to abolish monthly returns, the cus tom of bonding tobacco under the pretence pa?ywa*w*?? ??-T, ...?. ?v ?jxpm, ?nd many other potato, were all Oppoeed by Mr: Hfc&i as Injurious I alike to flic (fevernnfejit and manufacturer. Alter hearing|^r. jffijfct for oVer an hour in support or the intojjcpte of the plug man ufacturers, Oomnii?ribner Delano wan next heard, and submitted a number of letters from the largest manufacturing establish ments in the West confirming the views of Mr. Hunt. The subject was thoroughly canvassed, and the proposition to increase the tax on smoking tobacco to 32 cents per pound argued at some length. The com mittee, regarding this article as a luxury rather than a necessity, were not disposed lo reduce the tax, at least on plug tobacco, while it was apparent from the document ary evidence and the facts submitted that the best interests of the revenue require a uniform tax on all manufactured to bacco. It is understood that the Committee on Ways and Means will not hear any more arguments hpon this question, but will pre pare their report without delay, and be ready to submit all modifications of the bill when the House is ready to consider it. It is believed the tax on smoking tobacco will be increased to thirty-two centp, and that the committee will recommend that the in crease go into effect immediately after the passage of the bill, if, indeed, it should become a law. Already manufacturers claim that the agitation of the deduction of the tax, as suggested b3T the National Association, has interfered with their business, and that they arc not disposed to risk a large stock until the question is settled. Fifteenth Amendment.?The bill to enforce the fifteenth amendment has been finally put in shape by the Judiciary Com mittee, and will be reported to the House next week. It has been modified somewhat, but still imposes fine and imprisonment on any person who fails to register any colored voter, or to receive his vote, or to assess the requisite taxes to enable him to vote, or to prevent him from having the same privi leges under local regulations as arc given to white voters. I learn from one who knows that the ne gro hoy nominated by Butler for a cadet ship is in no respect qualified to pass the requisite preliminary examination, and that the " hero" is perfectly aware of this fact, and has so stated to anxious inquirers among military men. The poor tool has been nominated on purpose to be rejected. Washington Integrum?Baltimore Gazette.
