??TII?Pt1f ?<HimK8, WK1T- ? Wk are Indebted to W. A. private Secretary of the President, for valuable pgbllc documents. ?Wb had a visit, on yesterday, from Hon. Benjamin Stanton, of Ohio, mem ber of Congress from that State in the memorable session of 1860-1, and one of the ablest members, too, and after wards Lientenant-Governorof the State on the ticket with Governor Tod. He has located, for the time being, in Mar tinaburg, In this State, to attend to a large amount of law practice growing ont of the war, and thinks it probable that he will remain permanently in Woat Virginia. Mr. Stanton waB one of the ablest lawyers in Ohio, and will be a decided acquisition to the bar of our State, if he remains among us. _ About Bnalnesa. Business matters speak for them selves here in Wheeling, on the "><reeta, in the Btores, shops and factories. W e presume that' in all departments of trado the wheels never ran much smoother or much more satisfactorily. Away from home we read of the same state of things prevailing in almost every locality. Even from the South comes the bnsy hum. The Rich mond, Charleston, Mobile and New Orleans papers are thickly studded with advertisements, the true test of the life and business of a town or city. The Augusta (Ga.) CMrottide says that there are neither houses nor stores enough ill that city.. The demand for stores is so great there that rents have risen S00 or 400 per cent, beyond the prices ob tained before the war. The same paper says that steamboats are making from $10,000 to $20,000 tho round trip between Augusta and Savannah, and cannot carry all tho freight that offers. The New York papers speak in what wo suspect to bo almost extravagant terms, of tho business doing in that city. For inslunco tho JCrprrm, of Thursday, says that Tho leading railways out of that city are crowded with freight bound west and south, and the rolling stock of the different companies is taxed to Ha ut most activity. Tn dry goods the trade U unabated. Munv Jobbing houses are compelled to work nearly all night in oitler to get their sales up. Some of the largo lirms have actually been compelled to stop their sales in tho middle of tho day, till tho goods already sold could bo entered and shipped. The leading lionses are now frequently re alizing *25,000 to $30,000 per day. The demand in from all sections, but tho .South is takingan innnense amount of goods. Merchants from the Southern States come here prepared to pay up portions, and in some cases, tho whole of their old indebtedness. They are generally provided with receipts of cot ton. rice and tobacco, and tho amount of produce in the South la much larger than wi. ontkipnMi. The cash system is all tho rage. Probably Uiroo-fonrtho of tho business Is now done for ensh. The supply of goods, both foreign and domestic, is not equal to thedemand, and the stock to unusually light for the season. The market is very Arm for everything, and prices nre 8?dni?lly advancing. The auction sale of French * ir? ?nrnrw?H ho active ah at present, V?? ?Smo o7^principal establlsh ?<^it!^aro running their presses extra ' Sme f"tb?bootSndah<? trade there | isavory heavy business, goods being freely distributed all over the country, especially South. The question what shall be done with tho freedmen ? n question so alarming .to those who deemed slavery the natnral condition of a large part of the human race?is very satisfactorily nettling itself. Tho demand upon tho Freedmon's Bureau for laborers ex ceeds tho supply, and orders have been sent south to forward all tho unem ployod negroes, to meet tho constant requirements upon tha Bureau. This is very different from what was pre dicted by tho deftmdors of slavery; this does not realise the picture, so vividly drawn, of negroes starving, or living by thieving. But it Indicates the evi dent law of nature that a man who is willing to work will And work to do, and the result will soon vindicate the other law that a man will work better for himself than for another. We do not anticipate a great immigration of negroes from the south to the north; the tide is more likely, in the end, to turn the other way. The southern cli mate is better adapted to the racet and ihey will be needed there, even more than they are here. But north or south, I east or west, blsck or white, man or woman, two stout arms, impelled by a willing mind, will find enough to do, and ample reward for their toll. If no more difficult problem agitated the pub lic miifd than how honest labor shall receive fair remuneration, there would i be littlo in tho situation to excite anxiety. If there was us. little doubt how their masters will accept and im prove their new relations, as how the freedmen will, Mr. Johnson and his cabinet would have little to trouble them in that direction. A member of the Signal Corps, in re ply to the statement of the Chicago lie publican that the. messages were all read by the enemy, saya that tho chief signal officer under Eee, confessed that tha rebels could not read our signals, -which were sent in eyphor. He also affirms that during the investment or Petersburg and Richmond, all tho mes sages quit by the rebels each day were laid before Gen. Meadb before 7 o'clock each evening, though during tho winter1 the code was changed four times. j A ^ akkkk la taking ISO negroes from' Virginia to Maine to employ thorn as wood choppers.

He *lu n<> doubt fkney , himself higher "above the clouds" than fe "6 w*s at Lookout Mountain. the aoatbern Weesa^hialj^io make what demands iheypletofed, and takes occa sion to warn the southerners to beware of linking their political fortunes with Pierce and men . like him. Hear..its words, and remember they came from Georgia: i "Already have the Copperhead De mocracyof the North ana men of ultra southern views commenced talking about what they conceive to be the wrongs of the south. Already have the hungry office seekers of colder climes sounded the key note of opposi tion to the administration and its con servative and wise policy, and com menced calling upon the south to assist them in accomplishing its overthrow, if such a thing is possible. Already have this set of public crib cormorants begun to devise most infamous schemes and projects whereby they can once more fbfst themselves into power. Of course they know they have no strength of themselves alone, but they hope to be able to do something and accomplish manv.things with thnZgssistance of the south. They wish.t^^mbltter this sec tion of the country against the Wash ington anthoritles. They care not how much harm the course they desire us to pursue would do to the south, that is the least of their thoughts. All they wish; all they are working for; all they are seeking to accomplish is to carry out projects which will subserve their own um>atriotic selfish views. Ought the South to give further heed to the appeals and fair speeches of this class of designing demagogues? We think not. Every true patriot, we be lieve, will coincide with us. We have been led astray by following their bad counsels in days gone by. Let us make no more missteps in the future. Let us cast aside the baneful teachings of these Northern Copperheads, and also of those Southern leaders who are already acting in concert with them in order to better their fallen political fortunes. We have suffered enough bv listening to their vain boastings and pompous promises in the past. Let us to-day, and for all the future, spurn with the contempt and scorn they deserve all their false and specious pleadings." It is now clear enough that the prom inent secessionists wero led by the fawning sycophancy of some Northern Democrats to form an entirely errone ous opinion of the state of public feel ing in the free States. Because Frank Picrco assured them that if disruption should come, "the fighting would not be along Mason's and Dixon's line merely," and Eaton, of Connecticut, threatened that Massachusetts troops should not be suffered to pass his State toward the South, they leaped to tho erroneous conclusion that at tho first demonstration of hostility on their part, the North would come on its knees be fore them and sue for terms. They rushed to arms with that expectation. Tlioy have drained tho cup of disap pointment to tho dregs. Tho sensible Southerners* who seo how disastrous was tho mistake of the rebel leaders and of tho Northern cop perheads, who wore all through the war encouraging them to hope for success, should at once, like tho Chronicle, cut loose from those leaders and repudiate those coppcrlieads and stand in good (kith. by tho (Jovernmont, which is en deavoring to secure to them pcaeo and order and prosperity. Instead of ally ing themselves with these political Bourbons, who cannot seo that any thing has happened during the last four years, but wish to rule tho country oh tho old pro-slavery Democratic princi ples, they should awake to an: apprecia tion of the new wants and the true policy of their States. They should concentrate their energies not so much on political intrigues, as on plans for developing their industrial resources. They should endeavor to so order af fairs in the South that capital and talent and industry would " hot be repelled from them, but would come hastening to their soil to give them a higher meas ure of prosperity than they.havo ever enjoyed before, ^dy should aim to act in harmony with the dominant lojTal sentiment ol the North. Tho North ern men, who before led thom on to ruin, should no longer be taken as allies and guides. Some of the South erners are wise enough to see this. We fear that too many of .them are not. Xew? From the Interior. There was a meeting of Episcopal clergymen at Clarksburg on the 24tli, to take measures relative to establish ing a separate diocese in West Virginia. The Telegraph says that nothing par ticular was done. It also expresses the opinion (the editor and his family are members of that Church,) that "there Is! | a rebel element In the church Orga" nizing in this State, that is endeavor ing to play a game for domination.V He further declares against Bishop Jolm*s having anything to do with the church in this State, saying that while a prisoner of war he witnessed too much of tluit prelate's "diabolism." The article concludes thus: - . - .-.I-. .r ... .?.'v uv JfUlgElt Ol I loyalty before thoy cun bo pure. There was n railroad meeting in Clarksburg on tlie 20th at which the following resolution was passed: That It is important to tho interest of this .Slate that a Railroad from Big Sandy by wuv of Charleston to some point on tho 2?.

The Morgantown rost this week urges anew the building of a railroad from Uuiontown, Pa., through Morgantown to Fairmont. We quote as follows from Its article: It will be seen that this route inter sects the Baltimore and Ohio railroad at Fairmont, and from thence'it would necessarily, fbrtho present at least,.'be the route to the rapidly rising city of Parkerobnrg. Being the shortest route from the Northern section that concen trates at Pittsburgh, it would bo the favorite route from thence to the States of Kentucky and Tennessee, as also southern Ohio. It would avoid that monstrous and terrific circumbendibus of a road from Pittsburg to Beliair, Ohio, which is the eyesore of travelers and the terror of consignees. The Bal timore and Ohio road would enter into |t heartily, as they also have an eye to business, which is as discerning as that of old Argus himself. The Fairmont National seconds the move for this railroad in a. long article. TSnffH. Gay and wife, of Mononga lia county, were lost on the steamer Brother Jonathan, in the ill-fated wreck ofPtbe coast of California. They were married; only, about eight weeks ago. The Post notices as la "false report" a rumor that the Fairmont Bank will not redeem its notes unless presented by the first of September?yesterday. Of courte such a report could not be other pian false. Who ever heard of banks thus limiting their liability?
