CKf. I. IV. Dt'V.VL. House or Delt crant. JACOB HOIHBIOOIL We have good reports from Liberty ownahip, in the country, as to pros pect* at the election on the We "" a,,'?"Urod ?? Hichland and Trimlelphla townahlp. the Union n>en "re ldle- Uow about Ritchie and W ebster and Centre township.? Wo bear very little from thcae districts. Are onr IHenda starting the work there? The ever reliable Fourth Ward, Union Tm t? ' ?daty' and "? "0' , ?f' Ulint We are even told that the good results in Wash ington township will surprise ua this year. Some people are sanguine enough to believe that a change of heart is going on up there. In Madison we had pretty near a stand off at the Presidential election, how will It be ?bis year* We hope to hold our own ?"? V oar many good men in the ai and .th wards will only do their du,y. we shall do better still. Union friends in all the townships ??d in all the wanls! l)o you appre ciate that we are now within two weeta of the election? We appeal to yon not to be remiss. Ilold your little caucuses ami committee meetings nightly. Leuvo nothing undone. We ran achieve a victory that will do us good thoughout the State if yon wiU only put vour shoulders to the wheel. We alluded yesterday to the proposed attempt of the disaffected people in Jef ferson county to hold an election under the laws of Virginia on thepretenseand under the claim that they have the right and that it is their duty to do so. They take upon themselves the decision of the mooted question whether Jefforson county is or is not a part of West Vir ginia. It suits their predilections tode cule that she is not, and therefore they meet In public assembly, appoint com mittees, and In disregard and defiance of the officers and laws of the State of West Virginia, proceed to arrange for an election on the 12th, to-morrow. Mr. Andrew Hunter, a returned rebel, and one of the leading and moat re-' sponsible sinners connected with there bellion in the Valley, heads the move men*, having presided as chairman of the meeting held at Charlestown on the wit. In the true Virginia style a vast amount of words are uddnced be fore the meeting to ahow that what they propose to do is all right, and that no person can in tulrness except to their Idea of choosing whether they wiil live in the old or new State. Thooilygain monof Mr.Hunter flows vory smoothly, and HO doubt pleased his rebel friends and neighbors very much. But he will find that what he propones to do requires something more than words, and that the administration of this State does not intend to play tho role of James Buchanan over again, by whlning~and protesting against what is being done, and yet doing nothing to prevent It. If Mr. Andrew Hunter and his ool leagnes persist in their seditious move ment, they wiU be dealt with summa rily. On that point they can bet their money. Gov. fioreman will not play with them gingerly. If the John Brown gallows ha4 been taken down at Charlestown another one can be put up. In the meantime, as we are glad to know, Gen- Emory has repaired to the scene or the proposed election, and lie will take charge of the. ballot-boxes which Hunter and his friends think oC opening to-morrow. It will be well for the rebels to accept his presence among them as a finality to their efforts in a seditions direction. And if they are wise they will give over any farther attempts. Thk Wells burg timid seems to have an erroneous impression in regard to the proposed amendment to the consti tution of West Virginia prohibiting rebels from voting. The people do not vote on the proposition at the election on the 20th. Tho amendment has another passage to make through the legislature next January, before it can be submitted to the people at the polls. By a wise provision of our constitution all amendments proposed to the organ ic law of the Stale, In the legialatnre, must pass that body twice, at two dif ferent sessions, and then afterwards come before the people for final ratifi cation or rejection. In this way the moat dispassionate consideration ta as sured tor every proposed amendment Two different legislatures, and finally the people, must pass upon it. Much that has been written abont the proposed constitutional amendment prohibiting rebels from voting, has been written as if it was to be passed upon finally this month. Instead of being u It Is, only on Its second reading.' It was altogether prematnre to shoot at a mark so tar off. We may be sure that there is very Utile danger of an uncon sUtutional law running the gnanUetof two sessions of the legislature, and af terwards, the popular vote at the polls. The provision In our constitution re-* ferred to was intended to meet all dan gers of that sort. It has alsd nerved In the matter or the present proposed amendment to give us Ume to consider from events, hoW far such an amend ment may b. necessary. We are aU drifting along thu?lar, both In a na tional and State politf or view. We are trying to ascertain what wlU be a proper Policy. As yet we are no little in the fog and the dark. We shall be wiser by the meeting of the next legislature. wi" bave been in sewlon sev oral weeks. All the Southern States will have held elections. A southern pubUc 2^ 7'!! h*V" developed Itxdr. By the aid of these lights wo shall bo better IMly how f*r we ought to go In disfranchising rebels.

Such a restriction Is necessary as a matter of self preseiv ration, as things look now. Who They Are. " We appealed to the Wellsburg Herald a few days ago for information as to who Mr. Cooper, of Hancock county, the democratic nominee for the State Senate from this district, was. Also as to who Mr. White, tho Brooke county nominee for the House of Delegates, was. The Herald is nearly as much in the dark as ourselves, but nevertheless is able to inform us as follows: "Mr. Cooper, wo beliovtvis a farmer residing on Tomlinson's Run, in Han cock county, and has been a citizen for some live years, during which period he has never to our knowledge distin guished himself in any way. For all we know, he may be a very proper man, and doubtless is. or the reconstructed democracy would not have -nominated him. As he has never aspired very high, he will not have far to fall, which consideration, probably, as much as anything else, led to his nomination. We would, however, be doing injustice to Mr. Cooper, not to mention that his reputation among his neighbors as a democrat" is sound, with or without reconstruction. In regard to Mr. White we have very little to say, insomuch as in the case of Mr. Cooper, not much can be said for or against him. He is a young man of unexceptionable character, but of old lino whig parentage, which is decidedly against him politically. When a boy, he was considered a "pretty sharp boy,'* but as he advanced in years, as usual in such cases, he is not particularly sharper than he was then, only a little more conceited, and set in his way. His principal w&ikness, as we under stand, CO ovists in the hallucination that he is not appreciated, but take him all round, tmrring bis politics, he is not a bad kind of a party. He is a son of Hugh White. Esq., deceased, aud Is, or intendato be, df the medical profession. The immense business doing in_New England cotton mills is shown by the fact that several of them hdve lately sent agents to England for additional operatives, having found it impossible to procuro enough in this country to meet the demand. The Boston papers announce that one vessel has already arrived at that port with over two hun dred cotton operatives on. boajtil,! who have been sent hither from Lancashire, England, by agents of the mills. Other vessels are expected to arrive soon with a much larger number of hands. Every cotton mill in the New England States is now reported to be running to the full extent of its capacity, ana in many of them the hands aro working from sixteen to eighteen hours-out of the twenty-four, receiving extra wages for overwork. It is said that the mills are now making nearly one hundred per cent profit, Which is occasioned by the late heavy advance in prices. Thev aro all overwhelmed with orders, and having now no difficulty in obtaining cotton, they are enjoying a rich harvest. It cannot be expected, however, that this condition of things will long con tinue. The present heavy demand from tho South and West will soon be supplied, after which a stock will accu mulate, prices will come down, and the disposition to strain every mill to its utmost producing capacity will natu rally subside. Mr. Beeciier, in one of his "lecture talks," refers to his connection with Plymouth Church, which pays him an annual salary of $12,000, in the follow ing language : "My relations with this plant that Christ's own hands planted have been so well nigh unclouded, havo been so full of joy and satisfaction and remunerating labor, have been so al most unbrokenly happy, that I can hardly imagine another situation to be comparable with the one which I hold. If I felt that all ministers of the Gospel could have such satisfaction as I have had, I could very sincerely say to the yonng and aspiring men of mv time, choose first the ministry of the Gospel; for, above all other things on earth, it carries with it its reward. Even if one were permitted to chooso from so low a motive as wordly comfort, I should say choose it. But I am sure that any man who choosesr .the ministration of the Gospel, in its higher or lower spheres, either from the love which he bears to God, or from the sympathy that he has with his fellow-men, win almost forget its exterior relations and blessings in the plenitude of its spiritual remune rations; in the mercies that God sends within. There is no position in life that is free from care, or free from dis auiet. Nor Is the ministry an excep on. But in it less, it seems to me, than in almost any other avocation, ate the cares and infirmities of man per mitted seriously to disturb the soul, or throw it from its equipose." Female Gamblers.?A New* York correspondent says that the vice, of gambling is practiced extensively among fashionable ladles in that city. He says that in Fifth avenue; and Fourteenth and Twenty-third streets, there are often* parties of ladies from .which the opposite sex' are sternly ex cluded, where the fain gamesters play until daylight, for laxge ptnkes^ and it not unfrequently happens 'that when their purses are depleted, they put up their bracelets, necklaces, and watches as wagers. Some of the- female game sters lose heavily, and llie desperate shifts?no allusions to their wardrobe? to which they are put. to fonceal .their loeses and replace them, must be fear fully demoralising. A young woman, the daughter or a most opulent citizen, was pointed out to bim last Saturday in the Park, as a notorious gambler, by one of her own sex, who informed him that she had parted with %100,000 since she went to Saratoga in July, and made the doting papa believe that ahe had I expended the sum in dress and charity. The yonng woman in question is very pretty, not more than twenty; and no one regarding her pale, spirituelle face, her son blue eyes and gentle and re served manner, would imagine that she had fallen a victim to One of the most dangerous vices. - ? The whole numbei of postal routes con tracted for in the Southern States thus far is 84. The whole .number of post offices re-opened 807, leaving over 7,000 yet to be opened. The growing demand for postal facilities is pro&4?by &e fact that 1 post office was opeUed id'the month of March, 1& in April, 8 in May, 37 in . June, 70 in July, 220 in August and 450 in September. The difficulty, in opening more lies not-in . thq Depart ment, but in the inability to find men who can take the requisite oath. . . During the first quarter of 1866 thefto tal expenses of tho Post Office Depart ment were $3,048^09 47. Of this amount |S2,?5 33 was paid as compensation to poet masters, $120:001 28. to letter car riers, and $1,781,708 24 'foe transporting the mails. The receipts tor the quarter ,931 51, Hhowing a- net profit Donnco the week ending tho 7th insL, the Treasury Department redeem-, ed Certificates of Indebtedness to the amount of $5^74^60; f1,425,970 in mu tilated currency was also destroyed by the Redemption Bureau, during the same period.

W. liEWKLijBX, Esq.-?Dear Sir; Touts of the 2d inat,, asking my opin ion as to certain interrogatories therein rounded, is bcf<?re me.. .Were it not. I have received numerous letters and inquiries or tho same import from other persons, I should decliile answer ing because of the delicacy of tho sub jects and my own position. Indeed. 1 do not know that my opinion will be heeded by the voters or by those who are candidates for their suffrages. * It is peculiarly painful at this time, -In tho disturbed condition of tho State, while there are so luaxuy petitions at Washington .on file for pardon, and meetings being held in a largo number of counties in the State, passing resolu tions declaring the loyalty ot the people to the Federal and State Governments, that there should bo reasons for raising these questions. Congress, acting under a provision of (Utt Constitution of the United States, which is in these words, to wit: "Each 'House shall bo -thorjudgo of the elec tions, returns and qualifications of its shall take tho oath to which you refer. That resolution, prescribing the oath, will have to bo repealed before any member, who cannot conscientiously subscribe to it can take bis seat. It is not to be expected that Congress will re peal that resolution in .order to give seats to members, who cannot take the oath. This, I believe, answers your first question. 1 2. Effects on Virginia if she should not have representation in the next Congress. Not that a representation will do her so much good, but it will be a great evil tothe State if she is not rep resented. All our interests will suffer if we are unrepresented. 3. With reference to the ? selection of members to the General Assembly who are ineligible. It Is to bo hoped that none such will be elected. Should they the, the Constitution of tho State must be repealed before they can take their seats, and as the question will be en tirely within the control of the Legiraa ture, that body may defer action till the. close of .its session, and thus do ; prive the counties sending such dele l gates as representatives. But has it not the appearance of per* sistent and continued rebellion formen to run for Congress who, l>y the laws of Congress, canuot take their seats? And so in regard to the General Assembly; The first act to be dondbythem when they arrive at the State or National Capital will be .to demand the repeal of certain laws before they can take their seats. If this class of men are sent to Congress the members of Congress will conclude that .the representative is a type of the people, and will be likely to reject them. There is no doubt but able delega tions can be elected both to tho Con gress of the United States and to the General Assembly of Virginia who are eligible. _ The highest type of patriotic citizens held up fbr1 our admiration in history in all ages of the world, are those who have bowed with implicit obedience to the laws of the country, however pain fhi their execution. This Is a period in our history which calls for like self denial. I hope the people of Virginia, will show themselves equal to tho emergen^. I am ^ours, ?fcc., Pkirpoint. Brooke County Xcnu. (Frxmi the WetUburo Herald.) Joskph II. PffirotBTOif, esq., recently representing Brooke'? and Hancock counties in the rebel Senate at Rich mond, made his appearance in Wells burg tho other day; apparently none the better or worse.
