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
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
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
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
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.

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
...?. ?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
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.
