WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 24, 1873,
Tho Great Error of Virginia. *
Our friend of the Petersburg Xnn* over
slaughs the point in the question of the
policy of Virginia in making ft road through
the richest part of the State, four hundred
miles long, from Bristol to Norfolk, without
taking its largest city en route, when to
do so would have increased its length,
some say only five miles?certainly a very
little: so Inconsiderable as to he absolutely
contemptible In comparison with the im
mense advantages that would have been se
cured to the State by placing Richmond
upon the Hue of that most important road.
That is the point.
That it would have been less to the bene- j
fit of Petersburg and Norfolk had tlie road
been located by way of Richmond we sup
pose no man will have the effrontery to say.
We say it could not hare been /ess to their
advantage than if has been located as it is,
leaving Richmond fifty miles away by the
line of the Danville road, and not less than
twenty-two miles distaut at the nearest
point of approach to it.
The State never made another error fo
great in the matter of improvement. She
left out of view the only city within her
borders that could make a show- of compe
tition for the large commerce of the Com
monwealth, and the towns which are claim
ing the road as essential to their growth?
which has been no growth?have not been
benefited by the opportunity afforded them
to thrive by that commerce.
Had the towns whose fancied interests
led to an ambitious and unwise combina
tion against the principal eitv of the state
been able to build the lines?the direction
of which they controlled?that would have
beci quite a different affair; but it was un
fortunate that places so inconsiderable
should have thus succeeded in a misappro
priation of the money of the State-of which
Richmond contributed more than all the
towns in the State put together? l>) which
her principal commcici.d intciMs and pros
pect* received a severe blow?a blow which
jdic is not compensated for in any way that
we know of.
About " Virginian "and"anti-Virginian*'
lines of railway there has been a vast deal
of talk, very little to the enlightenment of
any body. It has been intended merely for the
arraying of parties for or against particular
railroads. We shall welcome the influx of
fjreign capital to build railroads. Every
railway within-ti e boundaries of Virginia
is a Virginia road, it cannot be taken out
of the State. The more there are of them
th^ better. Our people, in greater or less
numbers, have been the advocates of them
all, and all of them and as many more as
may be built will benefit more or less the
people of Virginia.
We have never been able to appreciate the
distinctions drawn by the railroad partisans
as to which were and which were not Vir
ginian. All railroads endeavor to get as
much freight to carry as they can, and we
believe all set a high value on " through
freightIf there is one that does not put
this estimate upon "through freights" we
should like to know which one it is. In
deed, we make no objection to any road for
its ambition to increase all kinds of trans
portation upon it. There is nothing more
delusive than the cry aboat " Virginian " as
applied to railroads. They are all for them
felces. They are obliged to be.
Slavery in Cuba.?A correspondent of
ilie New York IJerald reports an interview
with Scnor Zulueta, President of the Casino
E-panol, at Havana, who owns 2,500 slaves.
The reporter ?ays that the Senor admits that
the abolition of slavery in the island is in
evitable; but he desires that it shall be gra
dually accomplished. He dreads any sud
den shock .to the interests of the island by
hasty abolition. Sefior Zulueta is a sensible
Xnan. The world is gone wild on abolition,
and slavery must be abolished everywhere
gave in Africa, where it is not possible to abo
lish it now, nor will it be for centuries to come.
It must be civilized first, and when will that
condition be fulfilled ? How long will it be,
indeed, before the Africaus, in the nii(l.-t of
.?be civilization of this continent, are civil
Evans's (Raleigh) Independent states uV>n
good authority that Litilefield?the noto
rious fccamp who, a few years since, ran a
?'rum-shop" at Raleigh,where there were
free driuks for the members of the Legisla
ture?is now in Florida penniless. He
figured extensively in the business of get
ting through the Legislature the bonds that
were squandered, aud which the State is
now endeavoring to repudiate. The scamps
who plundered the southern States under
the protection of military rule and the
patronage and encouragement of the Fede
ral Government have been rapidly coming
to grief. ' Many of them- have fallen ^
the hands of their own friends; aud a great
body of them have come to sorrow, with no
way of escape open to them. They have
none at the South, and if they go back to
their cative North they have no hope of
social cordiality and aid there. Northern peo
ple, under the impulse of feelings excited by
the war, may have enjoyed somewhat our
afflictions through the frauds aud cruelties
practised upon us. But they canuot admire
the unprincipled adventurers who were the
instruments of our torture. It is some con
solation to know that these bad men are
coming to reverses well deserved, yet hardly
equal to the retribution due to their crimes.
If it requires ?1,000,000,000 of currency
to do the business of the country now, it
appears evident to u< that it will require
?2,000,000,000 to answer the purpose when
the business doubles. "Why is this reason
ing defective? asks the Cincinnati Trade
List, and we repeat the question.
The saiiiLs of the war, led by the incom
parably devout General Howard, have so
fallen in respect of their piety and their
honesty lhat people begin to find out their
hypocrisy aud their sordidness. If we can
not trust the Abolition crusader General
Howard, whom may we trust I"1
It is now reported that the Dominicans
are about to upset Bakz, who Is called a
tyrant We take this information to be of
the smallest possible consequence to the
world. And what of Bakz's tyranny?
None but a tyrant can govern San Domingo,
and the inhabitants may well be grateful that
their country still supplies tyrants to take
the place of tyrants who are ejected from
It is reported tbat Grant will have a
chance to establish another satrapy,?this
time In Texas?as Davis refuses to yield the
office of Governor to the Democrat (Cork)
just elected by forty thousand majority.
MIps Louisa 31. Alcott, of Boston, is a
smart lady, of an uncertain age. She has
written some of the mo9t entertaining of
stories for " young people," nn?l all know
that such stories are equally Interesting to
old people. Indeed, these stories are so
pleasant that we are tempted to say that
Boston has the best maker of children's
books of the day, as she has in Miss Led
yakj>, the best sketcber of child-iifo and chil
dren that we have ever known.
But there is something the matter with
Miss Alcott. Her health is incomplete, her
digestive organs arc not iu the condition
of those of the little people she so happily
represents. Wc say so because she so fur
I depart* from the innocent and the unpreju
diced spirit of childhood's morality as to
put a bit of fanaticism and puritanisin into
one of her recent book?? Cupid and Choxr
Chotc. In the chapter devoted to "Nelly's
hospital" elly is seeking through the
woods for subjects for pity and for relief
when she linds a fly iu a spider's web.
?4Nelly," says Mis* Alcott, "had heard
"much about contrabands; knew who they
"were, and was very much interested in
'?them." So Nelly, when "she freed the
poor, black fly," " played " that he was her
conl rabaiul, and, continues the story, "was
" glad that her first patient was one that
'? needed help so much." Having freed him,
sin* set him at liberty "because she had no
wish to mike a slave of him."
.Pursuing her mission in search of the dis
tressed, she found "a little gray snake with
a bruised tail." [A bruised 4< head " would
be more harmonious with sacred wril.] She
pitied il, yet shrank fioui it, "for it had a
I 44 iierv eye and a sharp, quivering tongue,
1" that looked as il' longing to bile." 44 4 He
" is a rebel. 1 wonder if I ought to be good
"to him,** thought Nelly. * * "It says
"in my little book 4 Love your enemies.' I
44 think snakes are mine; but I guess I'll try
-una love him,because God made him."
A pretty good way of comifl?iUmg slavery
and ^.-eWlstothoc-uild-s mmai How
could the fW" 10 wom,0,r h0"' V
th.,i aod should have at ail made these
rebc*la? thoc gray snakes? If the author
had thought her book would never reach a
southern State she would nevertheless have
committed a great siu to plant the weeds of
uncharitableuess aud hate in the innocent, i
pure minds of children ; but as she certainly j
knew it would be scut to the South, where (
her writings have many admirers, her oflence
is unpardonable either on the score of mo
rality or charity. .
"Let her, in her next scrap-book, im
print upon the young mind the horrors of
the Yankee slave trade. Let little Nelly
thread a shady path near a frog-pond, and
let a black frog therein cry out, " Jug o'
rum," 44 Jug o' rum," "Buy a nigger,"
<? Buy a nigger," &c., and then say ? Nelly
had heard of the slave-ships and the cruel
ties of our Yankee forefathers in bringiug
ncro slaves bought with 1 rum' over the
sea?cruelties that would have shocked a
hyena-and therefore she felt much obliged
to the old black frog, who has, no doubt, re
latives in Africa, for dinning it into the ear?
of the people that their ancestors did very
j bad thing*. Sj she said. ?lhauk you, Mr.
' <? Frog, for your bit of history ; aud now tie
"a bit of flannel about your neck, for you
" seem to be hoarse.' Good-bye."
This would be very pretty and very true.
AVe suggest to Miss Ai.cott that she is uot
true to her mission of making sweet and in
nocent impressions upon the stainless minds
of the dear, delightful children. There is
something the matter. Is it celibacy'( The
remedy for that is uot disagreeable.
