Gov. Peirpoint and the Bebcl Editors
of the Examiner.
General Harris, who is ih command
oi the Fredericksburg district, sends to
the Richmond Republic a timely rebuke
to the editors'<? the Efamincr for their
recent mean-spirited and disloyal atr
tack upon Governor Peirpoint. The
Governor merited better treatment at
their hands, for, whatever his faults,
the Eastern Virginia rebels ought to be
the last to complatti of him, seeing that!
he has been their friend, so far as a
loyal man could be, since his advept
among them. The rebels of the Hxam
iner are specimens of a large class over
there who have neither gratitude or
sincerity, and are not to be trusted any
more than bo., many Italians. Like
Italians they must?and will be held by
force, and their haughty necks will yet
be brought into submission to tho now
Tho General, in the course of his ar
ticle, vindicates Governor Peirpoint as
follows from the ill-natured flings of
the Examiner at his origin and occupa
tion here in West Virginia:,
So far from being unknown beyond
the bounds of the three or four counties
in which it is alleged that he practiced
hia profession,- Governor Pierpolnt was
well known by reputation throughout
the whole of West Virginia. Neither
was he wholly unknown to the Eastern
portion of the State, as the Illiberal at
tacks on his political opinions by the
Richmond papers that differed with
him in political sentiment will testify.
He was known to the people of West
Virginia as one of her educated, liberal
minded, enlightened sons, and by the
purity of his character and his compre
hensive and statesman-like views of
the political questions then agitating
the country, and his fearless political
consistency,. ho won for himself tho
respect even of hispolittcal adversaries,
then largely in the majority throughout
tho State. In tho fearful struggle of
1861, which resulted in precipitating a.
portion of tho State, in opposition to
the sentiments and wishes of tho peo
Sle, into rebellion, rendering it neces
\ry for-the loyal portion to fall back
on the inherent rights of tho people in
restoring government to the State, G^v-.
ernor Peirpoint was selected by the*
loyal people as their representative
man, not on account of his obscurity
and want of ability, but a tribute to his
worth, and an evidence of tho confi
dence of the loyal people in his loyalty,
integrity, and ability to guido the ship
of State in that dark and troubled
hour. Audi only reiterate what has
often been said by souio of the ablest
men in the nation^ when I say that, in
all his utterances, he has displayed a
clearness of comprehension of the real
natnre of our institutions and of all
that was involved in the effort for their
overthrow, equaled by fe\y, aud ex
celled, perhaps, by none.
Gen. Harris understands tho animus
of the rebels, including the rebel .edi
tors, perfectly, as is shown by his stric
tures on the professions and inconsis
tencies of tho Examiner.
"Professing, tp be loyal, it does noth
ing but renew iu tho field of politics the
contest which has already been decided
by tho arbitrament of arms;;and as,
whilst the war was raging, it did all it i
could to mislead the people by holding 1
up to them false hopes of aid to their
causo* from the recognition of foreign
powers, so now it. endeavors to inspire
false hopes of the disruption of the loy
al party of the country, aud of now com
binations ot the South with the disloyal
element in the loyal States, thus forln
ing a party that will coutrol tho gov
ernment, und restore all that has been
It will be a bad day for the people of
Virginia when they shall be led to trbst
in such a delusion as this. Such a hope
would be like the apples of Sodom, that
turn to ashes in the grasp. It is time
that the Southern people should learn
that there is an inflexible purpose in
the minds of an immense majority of
the people of the United States, that our
Union shall not only be preserved, but
shall never again be put in jeopardy by
such false political teaching as that
which led to the late rebellion. Not
only the cause of the late rebellion, but
all its concomitants must be put away
forever, and the sooner tho people of
Virginia and of the whole South cease
to look for advantage from connection
with an odious and powerless minority,
and put themselves in full sympathy
with the loyal people of the country,
the sooner will they find themselves not
only in the enjoyment of their political
rights, but, at the same time, on tho
road to prosperity and happiness. A

De Bow on Reconstruction.?De
Bow has revived bis lieview, and prom
ises to make it national. In an article
on reconstruction, tho following inter
esting statements are made:?
"Thousands who yielded to secession,
perhaps a majority, in most of the south
ern states, hoped that , secession would
result in a satisfactory adi ustment of the
questions at issue. This class of the
southern people went iuto secession re
luctantly, and the dreadful . ordeal
through which they were called to pass
satisfied them, long before tho close of
the war, that it was a great mistake;
and thoy considered pacification with
the North, which was but another name
for reunion/as the only possible solu
tion of their troubles. For some time
before the close of the struggle, this par
ty was gradually preparing tho way Cor
a pacific solution, under the lead of such
men as Sharkey, in Mississippi; Par
sons, in Alabama; Gov. Brown and
Stevens, in Georgia; Baja, In South
Carolina; Holden, in North Carolina;
and Wickham, in Virginia. This party
accepted the downfall of the confedera
cy as an inevitable* result, and looked
with entire satisfaction to the restora
tion of the Union. This party, scattered
over the entire South, accepts tho Unions
not with aversion, but with alacrity.?
The original secessionists have very
many ofthem learned a great deal in the
progress of the war, and are willing to
accept the Union in good faith, as tlio
only harbor of refuge, from perpetual
war and military despotism."
The Charleston Courier publishes tho
following joke: Jt is perhaps not gen
erally understood that Postmasters,
when receiving letters not prepaid, are
required by law to sen# to ?he parties
to whom the letters are addressed a
printed note, with the blanks properly
tilled out, informing ehein that they can
obtain tha letters by paying the postage
due. It so happened not longsince that
Postmaster Trott, of this city, had oc
casion to send a note of this description
to a colored soldier in one of the interior
districts. On the face of the.envelope
was stamped in bold letters the word
"Free," meaning of course," there was
nothing to collect-frcro^^.Jndge
of the hearty laugh the Postmaster en
joyed on receiving the following reply
to bis note:

OLD VIRGINIA ON TUB RA&LPAGK.
Of course yoa have heard that His
Excellency Governor Pierpoint, of
Eastern Virginia, has sent a copy of a
series of resolutions passed by the Leg
islature of that State, to each member
of Congress here. These resolutions
are very mach after the style of "Old
1 Virginia;" she still has a hankering
after that Western portion, which altho*
small In size, contains the better half of
; the brains, business and enterprise, of
the whole State. Now, does anybody
suppose that Governor Pierpoint ex
Jiects to get back Berkley and Jefferson
counties by passing a string of long
-winded resolutions through his Legis
lature; or by sending them 'to the
Federal Congress? If they do, they
are very much mistaken. We donrt
think so here. In fact, the general
feeling appears to be that Western Vir
ginia should be separated from Eastern
Virginia by the Blue Ridge Mountain
i line. If that subject is ever brought be
fore Congress, your Senators and
Representatives will be found wide
awake, and ready for the Ibsuo.
THE SOUTXLERN SENATORS AND REPRE
There is no prospect whatever, that
the Southern Senators and Representa
tives will be admitted to seats in Con
gress this session; if at all, it will be
very late in the session. The House
has just passed a resolution that the test
oath shall not be rescinded; and this, of
Itself, would keep out many who had
taken up arms willingly; in the case of
Tennessee, the matter is entirely differ
ent, her Senators and Representatives
all being loyal men; several of them
having been persecuted for their loyal
ty. Henoe the House has invited tnem
to seats pending the discussion of the
matter, which will most probably end
in the admission of the Tennessee dele
gation, and probably the Louisiana
THE WINTER FASHIONS AND GAIETIES.
Washington presents a very gay ap
arance at the present time, and will
much more so uftor the holidays. As
it is, the avenues ^re crowded with
pretty women and well dressed, men. I
cannot say well dressed women; for,
although dressed in the extreme of
fashion, and sparkling in diamond* and
gold trimmings, yet> good taste is often
shocked by the exhibition of new found
riches, in vulgur possession. The small
Derby hat worn by gentlemen is boing
generally adopted by young ludies, and
is quite unique. Instead of the common
silk band, a ribbon an Inch broad, with
narrow white and black stripes, is used
by ladies; sometimes a small gold cord
is substituted. Powdered hair will not
be adopted. The description of a line
French lady, of 1753, is pretty near the
"Hang a bugle-cap on, and braid up your
?IJko the mane of a colt, to be sold at the foir.
"Vonr neck unci your shoulders both naked
Let your eowu 1? a nark, blue, red or greeu.
And frizzle your shirts, with ruffles sixteen:

One Thingand Another.
A Chicago paper says: "The boot"
black boy is an institution peculiar to
himself. He flourishes in most of our
large cities, and it may bo owing to his
frequent contact with the understand
ings of others,-which renders him, at
times, peculiarly sharp and witty. A
returning soldier was accosted by one
of the tribo with the usual salutation?
"Black'your: boots, sir? make 'em
shine?" Looking at his unpolished
"gunboats" in a contemplative way, the
war-worn veteran roplied: "Well, I
don't care if you do^-tall In promptly,
though." The urchin gazed a moment
at the soldier, surveying him from his
"leathers" upwards, and then, turning
to n comrade near by. shouted out: "I
say, Bill, lend us a hand, won't yer?
I've got un army contract.' "

Poetry In Undress.
An English paper, which rejoices in
the name of Ladies' Own, thus plays
tricks with rhymes and reason: "It is
many years since I fell in love with
Jane Jerusha Skeggs, the handsomest
coftritry girl by fa.- that ever went on
legs. By meadow, ereek, and wood,
and dell, so often did wo walk, and the
moonlight smiled on her melting lips,
and the night winds, learned our talk.
Jane Jerusha was all to me, for my
heart was voting and true, and loved
with a double and twisted love, and a
love that was honest, too. I roamed all
over the neighbors' farms, and I robbed
the wlldwood bowers, and tore my
trowsers, and scratched my hands in
search of the choicest flowers. In my
joyous love I brought all these to my
Jerusha; but I wouldn't bo so foolish
now, if I were a boy again. A city
chap then came along, all dressed up in
tine clothes, with a shiny hat and a
shiny vest, and a mustache under his
noso. He talked to her of singing
schools (for her father owned a farm, i
and she left me, the country love, ana
took the new chap's arm. And I never
slept, nor could I eat next day, for I
loved that girl with fervent love that
nought could drive away. I strove to
win her back to me, but it was all in
VulU; the city chap, with the hairy lip,
married Jerusha' Jane. And my poor
heart was .sick, and sore until the
thought struck me that just as good fish
?ffll remained as ever -was caught in the
sea. Bo I went to the Methodist church
one-night, and saw a dark brown curl
peeping from under a gipsy hat, and X
married that very g&l. And many
years have passed andgone,andlthink
my losa my gnlit; and I often bless that
hairy chap that stole Jerusha Jane."

The Offensive Fashion of Naked
ness.?In n notice of one of the London
theatres, (the Strand Theatre,) the
Morning JPost writes: "In tlio course
of tlio evening an incident occurred to
which we have some delicacy in allud
ing, but which should not be suffered
to puss without notice. In the stalls,
which were occupied for the most part
by ladies and gentlemen, manifestly
of good social position, and all dressed
in evening costume, there was seated
in company with a friend, a tall an J
remarkably pretty woman, the extra
ordinary lowness of whose dress was a
general subject of observation, and ob
viously gave great scandal to the au
dience, among the femalo portion of
whom a painful sensation was clearly
perceptible. At lost public indignation
tound expression in a brief emphatic
form. ISo sooner had the curtain fal
1he"?,n.tbe fiw* P|ay than there was
heard from the gallery a voice uttering
iSiwlSJ! nndMe I measured accents an
injunction which could be intended but
for one person in the vast assembly.
Pale with emotion, yet still retaining
her gentle, placid look?for there was
no taint of immodesty in her demeanor
?-she quietly drew her opera cloak over
her shoulders, and thou tied it tightly
round her neck. In a few minutls af
terwards she rose from her seat, and,
leaving behind her her friend, a modest
ly dressed woman, walked out of the
house, amid hisses from the gallery and
stern silence, not less eloquent, in the
stalls and boxes." *
Old Virginia Indignant.?The re
constructed Virginians are much ex
asperated by the exclusion of their
members from Congress. The Rich
mond Times has an angry article on the
subject, in which itputs the case in this
"Virginia, for the first time since
Thomas Jefferson penned the Declara
tion of Independence, occupies a coloni
al position towards the dominant gov
ernment. Taxation without represen

must bearthese insults with philosophic
patience. During the whole of the civil
war Congress recognized Virginia as a
'loyal State,' with a small sprinkling,
it is true, of 'disloyalty' in the interior
and gave her share of frequently reject
ed 'proceeds of the public lands* to the
proper State officers. Her representa
tives, also, sat alongside of Stevens in
the lower house and Sumner in the
Senate, and were their peers in every
respect. The outlawry of Virginia, bv

after the restoiation or the authority of

petent authority, speaking of the fash
ions of skating costumes, says:

skating habits for the present season,
and it is probable that the styles of last
year will almost universally prevail.?
fhe dross will consist of full Turkish
ST Burner trousers, tight-fittingjacket,
high Polish boots, and high turban
shaped cap.* The cap, jacket and boots
will bo trimmed with fur, sable being
"?j?ry tasteftil dress, and one which
probably will bo widely adopted, is
formed by the new scarlet, balmoral
"8PL flL"nK basqolne, Polish
boots and Derby hat."
"The usual extent of non-conformity
ma.v. however, be
W ladi?'? unless to a con
siderable degree proficient in the art of
skating, care to render themselves con
spicuous by dressing ;in costume; and
as there is still a number of tham who
have not yet attained that accomplish
ment, street toilettes at the skating
i.t* J10' .Pro? uncommon.?
Something has been designed In the
nature of a bag in which to carry the
skates, but the useless affair probably
will never be generally adopted."
