TUESDAT DECEMBER 24.1872.
It is Well to be Warned..
The Chief-Justice of the Whig warns the
Legislature against repealing tbe law of
?71_*72 excluding all things in the payment
of taxes me gold, silver, and greenbacks
(and therefore excluding coupons of funded
bonds), on the ground that as long as that
stands no officer is privileged to receive con
pons, the decision of tbe Court ol Appeals
to tbe contrary notwithstanding. In every
case the holder of the coupon must sue ont a
mandamus to compel the officer to receive
the coupon. An Enquirer correspondent
suggests a tax of 950 on every writ of man
flamus, to be paid, like newspaper subscrip
tions, " in advance." Tbe Whig hays this
will " block the game of the coupon-holders."
Well, now, gentlemen, would it not be as
well to look before you leap ? We take it
that the first great point in the judicial \ iew
of the case is that the highest court in the
State whose decision is binding upon all
inferior courts?has decided that the State
is bound to reccive the coupons in pay
ment of all dues. Wo are no lawyer,
but we conjecture that there is no very
clear route by which that decision can
be evaded in a question between the
State and an individual as to the obliga
tion of tbe State to receive theso coupons.
I.et it l)e remembered, too, when you come
to consider tbe question of "advantage,
that I he State is the collector, and must first
move. If the bondholder offers bis coupons
and they Rrc rejected, and he refuses to pay bis
taxes in other valuables, the State must make
another move. It must levy; and then, sup
pose an injunction is-asked for by the bond
holder, does not the decision of the Court of
Appeals seem to insure the granting of that in
junction? What then? We see no step
that the State can take that Will not prove
that its way is as much blocked up as that of
thtvbondh older.
But, we repeat, it is the State that wants
money, and the best expedients of those
who would resist the obligation of the State
to receive the coupons for all debts due it
only Icul to a dead-lock.
What would be the condition of the State
in carrying on in this irregular ana revolu
tionary way a war with her creditors ? ller
Government would be stopped. There
would be no money to keep its departments
In operation. Tulkabout State rights 1 Why,
this would be State suicide. It is sad enough
to see tbe States subordinated to the Central
(Jovcrnuient by degrees until they are al
most denuded of all authority. In apology
lor them, it may be said that this humiliation
is brought about by force?the force of num
bers and of arms; but w hat excuse can there
be f<>r the voluntary act of State suicide ? In
Mich a case the Federal Government would
li .j.i a complete justification for absorbing all
State authority. There could be no better
proof of the incapacity of a State to take
care of itself.
When the representatives of the people of
Virginia sec what may come of such a strug
gle between the State and her creditors as
those in favor of resisting the creditors and
the judicial authority of the State propose,
can they possibly for a moment dream of
permitting it to go ou ?
There could be nothing more deplorable
nothing more fatal to tbe honor of Virginia
and the welfare and prosperity of her people.
It cannot be allowed. The legislators will
certainly devise some plan for avoiding it
iu some worthy manner. To pay out, we
think, is the only way, yet there may be
more than one honorable way for that, with
tbe concurrence of debtor and creditor.
The true way, however, is to strain a point
and meet the public obligations. Those who
represent the State as penniless and prostrate
in the du>t arc not truly depicting her con
dition. She has energy, and means, and
pride,?a great deal of each?and her peo
ple, we believe, will rise up and demand that
l hey be allowed to redeem their old mother
from discredit and calamity.
Bartered Away.
?Tb? assailants of the funding act and of
the decision of the Court of Appeals rest
their justification upon the alleged bribery
of the Legislature that passed that act. As
there is nothing in the Constitution and laws
of the State which looks to the possible
briber}' of the Legislature or provides for
annulling a law that may be passed through
bribery, in what earthly manner docs this
plea atleet the decision of the Supreme
Court r
While the plea in that view is utterly fu
tile it presents for the people of Virginia a
fearful theme for reflection. The Legislature
of lt>70-'71 was elected by the same people
who elected tho present Legislature. There
it. no satisfactory reason for supposing that |
appliances employed successfully in 1870-*71
ui:iv not l<e tried with equal success at any
other time upon a body springing from the j
same source. If the constituent body is de
graded, the representative body must be
equally so. To what extent it Is corrupted
we canuot say. Those who egg on tho
present Legislature to resist the payment of
the public obligations charge that the repre
sentative body bus beeu bought, and the
charge cannot escape its consequences. It
stigmatizes the Legislature of Virginia, past,
present, aud to come. The elements com
posing it are the same now that they were
when the alleged bribery occurred.
If the charge be true, we know not the
remedy short of revolutionizing the constitu
ent body. But until that remedy can be ap
plied shall we consider the laws with refer
ence to the men who passed them'( .Shall
we resist some and obey others ? And in
order to allow us this liberty of resisting and
o!?e> iug us suits us, shall we abolish the
cjurt-1 The courts construe the laws as
they tiiul them, and aud have nut the right
i" distinguiyh between those passed by bri
bery and those that were not so parsed. They
would have to be abolished to free the ]>eople
from the obligation to respect the acts of
their own representatives.
This sort of government, so novel, may
engage the consideration of the public. It
will be found to be full of rare conditions
uud consequences.
The Washington telegrams show that the pe
titioners for fair-dealing and justice in Louis
iana are treated as the weak and wronged
always are by power. General Gkant will
not ask one of the judges of the Supreme
Court to go to New Orleans because that
would be out his line?an interference with
the court without authority. Judge Buad
lev, who w;ts indicated as a proper person
to go by the petitioners, declines to go unless
asked to do so by the President or his col
leagues of the Supreme Court; and they are
unwilling to urge the Judge to go because
there are two judges near Louisiana, and the
sending of Judge Braplky to look into
Louisiana affairs would be to distrust them.
Aud bo, for one reuvoti and uuother, there is
"ft roundabout way that when n proper
sion may be reached it will be of BO
to the Injured. It is always 8?- Ottr
rnent Is every day patting the prayer* nf the
helpless farther and farther away from be ng
beard and answered??'? c., it is " marching
on" to the "arbitrary ? phase of power, and
is not far from it.
How to Make a City.
The public authorities of Washington city
seem to be determined to show the worlu
how to make a city; and they will do it. "R e
believe that what iH now going on in Wash
ington will result in making that a very great
city?a city of commerce as well ns politics
and corruptions. The grand system of grad
ing of streets and bringing the wealth and
comfort of the locality into a concentrated
and entirely available condition would of
itself attract an immense population ; but,
not satisfied with this, those who are giving
their attention to the subject, and have the
direction in a treat degree of the public en
terprise of the place, are looking at tbe river,
its frontage, and their susceptibility to im
provement.
A commission was appointed last summer
by Congress to exumino the water-front of
Washington and Georgetown (the latter is
{ now included In the corporate limits of the
I former) with instructions to report a plan
! for improving the channel of the river Poto
mac. This the commission have done, and
the result* of their investigation have been
reported to Congress.
These results are of very great magnitude,
as they should be. Such a city and such a
river arc not to be disposed of in a slight
or narrow and coustrietcd manner. 1 In* com
mission propose to narrow the river channel
bv a bulkhead, and to Gil up between the
shore and bulkhead. This is estimated to |
cost $(>,000,000; but the "made land,"
it is supposed, will sell for even more than
that sum. The commission propose vfl.
rious other extensive improvements, such as
rebuilding Long bridge, the purchase
of the Alexandria ennnl. and the con
version of the aqueduct at George
town into a railroad traek, &c. 'Ihese propo
sitions will certainly be considered by Con
gress, and, sooner or later, we predict, favor
ably. Washington u destined to be one of
the grande>t and most highly-improved cities
of the world. New York city is equal in
pecuniary power to many Stales; bin ash
ington is the pet of all the States. However
the States themselves may tcel towards the
federal city, we must not forget the influ
ences that are brought to be.ir upon our
representatives when they are once fairlv
seated in the lodgings of a^hington. 1 hey
are so cosy, so inspiring, to the freshmen
from the distant provinces. Auothcr hot
whiskey punch, waiter! Five thousand dol
lars a year, and steak; and punches un
limited ! Washington is soon to be the
greatest place in the world! There is that
in the moral or immoral influence of this
representative phase of existence?its blazing
lire, its slippers, its robes, its bright lights,
its splendid buildings, its fat jobs, its great
doings, and its national fame and conse
queuec?that settles the question.
Washington is a great place, and is to be a
greater. We are glad of it; because it will
show to other towns some of the ways in
which city greatness is to be achieved. Cer
tainly, greatness does not flow simply from
the comforts of members of Congress; but
they vote the means by which greatness
comes. The grading of streets, the deep
ening of channels the improving of public
grounds, the building of elegant bridges, the
making of all the parts of a city easily acces
sible to one another, the concentration of
wealth by making the extremities available
for comfort and for credit?these are the great
agents of city prosperity and growth.
The example is grand. It is practical, be
nevoleut, and even poetical. Beauty and
utility are thus combined in a masterly man
ner, and tbe forces of the human mind arc
brought most thoroughly and etlieicntly to
the promotion of the comfort of society and
the advancement of civilization.
We think the example of Washington is
worth a great deal. Especially are we grati
fied at what the rulerB of that city are doing
because Richmond is the nearest city to
it in the South. We have not tbe federal
treasury, ii is true; but we have means and
energies, and may to a good degree profit by
the noble example we arc about to have in
the grand improvements in the federal city.
An Appreciative Response from Harvard.
We have before published tbe timely letter
of sympathy addressed by tbe Faculty of tbe
University of Virginia to that of Harvard
College (Massachusetts) iu view of the loss
of the last-named institution by tbe Boston
tire. Tbe lollowing is t be appreciat ivc reply
of the Faculty of Harvard :
"Harvard College.?
" Cambridge, Mass., December 10, 1872. $
<l l>ear Sir,?Tbe Faculty of Harvard Col
lege send hearty thanks to tbe Faculty of the
University of Virginia for their very wel
come expressions of sympathy and good-will,
cal ed forth l?v tbe recent losses which this
college has sustained.
" Tbe kind hope expressed by tbe Faculty
of tbe University of Virginia that tbe losses
of tbe college may soon be repaired is in a
fair way to be fulfilled. The probable losses
mnount to $250,000, of which sum one-half
has already been subscribed by friends of
tbe college and of all culture.
" We have been touched and quickened
by your sympathetic words,4 a disaster to
Harvard i^ a national calamity.' You give
utterance to a faith which is ours too?that
vigorous universities are essential to na
tional strength, and that tbe interests of all
institutions of tbe higher education arecom
uion.
" 1 beg you to eonvey to Hie Faculty over
which you preside the cordial wishes of tbe
Faculty ot Harvard College for the pros
perity of the University of Virginia as an
important element in tbe national prosperity.
M With much respect, very truly yours, *
" Charles W.Eliot, President.

John Mitcuel has taken the platform
against Froude. If Father Bubke has lel't
any part of Froude without a wound, a sharp
lance will unquestionably pierce it now. As
we have said already, we do not know why
Mr. Froude came to America to discuss the
question of the wrongs of Ireland, taking
tbe side against Ireland, lie has Not l>eeu
suspected of being a money-lover; and if he
expected to influence tbe public mind of
America, or to have a tield to himself, lie has
by this time found bis error.
Tbe Government of Louisiana which is
Upheld by the President.?The New Or
leans Times says the immediate effects of
the several acts and consequences of tbe in
terlocutory order of a petty United States
judge (Durell) are the installation over tbe
State of Louisiana of a government consist
ing of the followingoflicials:
For Governor: A United States Senator.
For Lieutenant-Governor: Tbe Xcgro
United States Collector ot tbe Port of Shreve
port. For President of the Senate: The
Mulatto Surveyor of the Port of New Or
leans For Speaker of the House of Kepre
tentative^; The United 8t#t?w Postmaster wt
The Assist
Far Sewtoi .
Representatives: Sixty-Eight Ignorant and
Corrupt Negroe*, a majority of whom hold
subordinate offices fto tbe Collector's and
Assessor's Department of the United States
Government.
The Times remarks: u This is tbe govern
ment which has been forced npon tbe people
of the State of Louisiana through an order
in chancery of n petty judge enforced by tbe
nrms of the Federal Government; and these
are the facts under which this outrage has
been consummated, upon which the Ameri
can people must now declare their convic
tions and judgment.
" If such transactions can obtain their ap
proval and support, if the precipitate and
evidently ignorant sanction given by the au
thorities at Washington be sustained by
them., then is the empire inaugurated in the
place of ibe once proud republic, nnd Loui
siana converted from a rich and prosperous
State into a negro province, ruled by the
satraps of the central authorities."
