THE CAPITAL QUESTIOX. Tho Wheeling Intelligencer is some what moved on the capital question, aod with soino cause ; for it is appar ent, from the tone of tho newspapers of the First and Second Congressional Districts, that in fact they are almost as much opposed to Wheeling as a per manent location, as t3 Cbarlo?ton. And in this, according to our judg ment, they are right, Rut a few days hsd elapsed, after the pasisgo of the bill, when it was announced by the Wheeling papers that tho location wut permanent. This is not what the members from this section of the Stau intended; nor docs the act itself war rant aoy such construction. It was ?'A bill to remove the seat of government ttmporurily to Wheeling." Such was the title of tho bill, aod it fully expressed not only the intent of the law itself, but of a large majori ty of those who supportid it, and by whose aid it was passed. Our Wheeling friends should nol misunderstand tho situation. The members from this section preferred Wheeling to Charleston as a tcmjtorartj location', but as nperinanoit ouu, at between those two points, they would just as soon have ouo as tbo other.? They voted for a temporary location at Wheeling bccsuio, as the delegate from Pocahontas shrewdly taid, ii Charleston was permittod to retain the capital two years lougcr, it would be impossible to rcmovo it; aod they rec ognized the fact that the seat of gov ernment must bo taken from Charles ton right then, if tbdy desired to securo a location at somo point in tho interior of tbo Stato. The interior justly claims tho seat ol government. Hero, wbcro wo havo a rich but undeveloped country, tho loca tion of tho capital would bo a public lenrjit, and the condition of tho interi or? offering, as it does, a rich reward to tho Stato for any judicious works of internal improvement?will abundant ly justify tho law-tnukors in locatinc the public buildings in what are called by our Ohio lliver friends, ??the Lack counties." Weston has no axe to grind in this matter, except the desire her people liavc for the good of tbo ootiro State. True, sho offers more and better ad vantages for tho location of the capitol than anv other town in the interior, but wo havo towns near us, almost as deserving. Our neighbors of liuck liannon uro certainly entitled to con sideration. as aro tho towus of Philip pi, Glonvillo, Bulltown, Sutton, aud half a ecoro moro villages near the ceutre of tho Stato. Hut wo do not propose to discuss, at this time, tho proper point for a per manent location; we only desire to say to our Wheeling friends that tho iden of a permanent location of tho capital in that city is an absurdity, and the less of that sort of talk the better for tbcinselvrs. By the votes of tho inte rior they bave secured a temporary lo cation, and when tho interior enters the lists in tho Legislature for a per manent location, Wheeling should leud her aid to socure a location at eoine point near tbo geographical cen tre?a location that would t?ud mate rially to devclope the resources of (he Statu. A COMPARISON. It hag boon said that "comparison* aro odious," and in a general way this aphorism holds good ; but in order to refresh tho minds of the pcoplo a little, wo desire to institute a companion be tween the courso of the Republican and Democratic parties, in a matter pertaining to impoacbtnent. Wo think that tho great failing of tho Democrats of this Stato is, that they havo such short momorics. During the reign of Radicalism,when white men wero disfranchised and black men enfranchised, a certain Na thaniel Harrison, then Judgoof tho Oth Judicial Circuit, and whose name i? now execrated by every decent man, of either party, in tho State,was known lo appear on tho bench intoxicated ; it was known that ho nssociate.1 with the vilest wretches to bo found ; and that lie openly kept and enjoyed tho society of a negro concubine. All these things were known, and tnoro, not fit for publication. Affidavits wore pre pared ; and all the uecesssry evidence ready. At the mesting of tho Legis lature Colonel D. S. fl'jufishcll ap peared, at tbo earnest request of the oppressed and insulted pooplo of tho Dis'rict, and offwred to prcsont tho evi dence. lie was set upon by ruffian* (tuombcrs of theJJJliCgislature) and kicked down itatrt, and out of the building. That waa tho notico taken of tbo undeniable factt ho had with Liin, wherewith to charge Judgo Har rison. Subsequently, after tbo eleo tion which resulted in the first triumph of Nomocracy, Nat Harrison, in order to shield himself from the penitentiory, tendered bis ronignatlon?Governor Doretnan accepted it?be left tho State; and was immediately appointed to a fat (jfBco in ono of the Territories by Pres* ident Grant. Such is Hadiealiim I Now for the revcrso. At tbo reeeot session of tbo Legislature, Mr. Camp bell,the Republican member from Han cook county,acting merely upon rumor, without ono solitory/<tf/to bear him cut, preferred certain chargcs against (wo dii'iogui'hed memUri ofIhoDem ocratio parif?buiJiog high poiitioos of public iruit. He offered a reiolu- i U??o ordering on investigation of ibeir I affairs. Then whit did the overwhel ming majority io the House of Dele gate* do 1 Did ibey assault tho accuser aud kick hiui 'out of the Capital at their predecessor# bad done t Did they put their feet upon tho resolution tod orusb it? No sir I Hut every Democrat iu the House, without a word to opposi tioa, Toted for the resolution, aud i?. was adopted. Not only this; but im mediately upon bearing of tbo circum stance, the officers charged wrote let ters to toe House demanding nu im mediate and full investigation of their affairs, and waiviog all the formalities which they had a right to demand ! That is Democracy! .Comment is uoneccssary. D. D DIX, OP MCI10LAS. We bavo never entertained tho idea, so fondly cherished by some, that it wai a necessary qualification for offi cial position that the incumbent should have arrived at the limit of years al 1 lowed for man's life, and crry as to kens of his ability, grey hairs and a : bald h ad. Certainly an old mm in bis dotago is ot lew service in public position than a young man io nonage We do not mean to say that wo now ' liavo persons iu offico wlio?e great age 1 disqualifies them for good; but we do 1 assert that we have a few young men 1 holding public positions who are nu 1 honor to tho Siato and to their constit ' ucuts. And in the front rank of this ' number, we class the honorable gentle man whose name hca*Jn this article. Ho was elected to represent thu coun , ties of Nicholas, Clay and Webster; ' uud took bis scat as one of tho young ' est members io the House. We watched bis course carefully during the whole session; and can truthfully as t sort that ho was ono of the most effi. , cicot member* of tbo Legislature. As I Chairman of tbo Joint Cotumitteo on f Enrolled Bills, bis labors were inces ( sant; aud bo also served with dili I gence and usefulness on the Committees on Taxation and Finance, Counties and ( Districts, and Education. Ho was the ( author of several important bills which f becamo lairs; and also prepared and , introduced two bills of great impor tance to tbo people of this portiou of tho State. Ooe wo* a bill making an appropriation for tho thorough repair of the Weston and (jauluy Bridge Turnpike ; the other making au appro priatlon of ?5,000 to assist in cjiii ploting the turnpiko road from Sum r mersvillo, in Nicholas county, to the intersection of tho Merlin s Bottom | turnpiko, io Pocahontas county. | These bills ho (ought for with a vigor and success that surprised bis older and nioro experienced colleagues; ami but ? for the pressure of tho Capitol and Senatorial questions, wc believe tliey would have passed. Both of them are now on their secoud reading, a id will verv likely bccotne laws at the Novem ber session. It is due to Mr. Dix that this state ment of fuels should bo made ; and it is proper that bis constituents should render to him that degree of honor he bss fairly earned; for it is a matter beyond dispute that the couoties hu represents never hid a tuoro faithful, car.<cst or successful representative. The Weit Virginia Uoundnry Line We lake tho following interesting article from tho Preston County He aid. It is a ecrap^of history worth roading ; and it is said by tbuso who profess to kuow that they sou in it thu car marks of that "auciont mariner," Uncle Billy Brown. The littlo w?r now going on between Marylaud uud this State in relation to tho boundary liue of Preston county, is attracting considerable attention; and hence t he interest attaching to tho article given below: Virginia, nearly a half century ago,lMticd |?tents for her lands up Iu a llieu recognlied iiae, ai the western boundary of the Stale of Maryland. The patentees settled on their respective grants, uud Imvc claimed to be c itizins ot Virginia and West Virginia ever , since. The line above referred to, ran Iron l.ord Fairtuz's Stone north, to the I'ennsjl vania liue. A??out the year 1832, J/irrland set up a claim to all the territory then occupied by Virginia lying uorth of the South lirunch of the Potomac river und east of a line fiom I the most western source of said river north, to the Pennsylvania line. ' Virginia, to satisfy Maryland and to via ? > dicute her title to the territory she occupied, . appointed the lion. Charted J. Faulkner a commissioner to go loBaglaud and hunt up her muuiiuents of title. Mr. Faulkuvr lound docunieuts showing thai, at Ihe in* slaucenf Lord lklliuioie and Lord Fairfax, the King and Council had before the lie vol ii . lion uppoiuted commissioner.! to find aud settle the true buuudaiits or tbc land in dis pute, and that the commissioners did thu and settle tbc said boundaries,uud that Fair fax's stone, at the head of the North Unuic'* of the Potomac river, was placed lliete by said commissioners. About this time ? largeruound was thrown upon iheFciiniyl vania line, supposed to heiu the same longi tude of the Fatrlax stoue. Alter the Itevo lution, a line was run uud marked under the direction of a gentleiuau aud ritixen or Maryland, by the name cfDeakins, from Fair lux s Stono uorth to the Pennsylvania liue, which intersected said line a little fttst of (lie said mound. Virgin! s, in her libel* ality. adopted the Deakiu's liue and ^rauied her lauds up to that line, and Mary Uud made her land grams conform io the same. Just before tie late Kebclliuu, Virginia aud Maryland uppoiuted comuiisiionris lo again run a line Irom Fairfax's Stoue UiMh to the Pennsylvania line, and report ti i'jc Lcgislaturcsol said States, which latter line was ruu and iis iulerm-iioti with Pennsyl vania was still wesl of the Ueukiu's line, iriiether the commissioners ever reported is not certainly known, but it is kuowu that Virgiuia never acted ou or coututied in suld last report or ruuuiug. Since the runniug oi the last line, citizens of Maryland have been covering the old Vir ginia land granii, embracing the lauds If t ween the Dim kin's line nud the last made liue, with Maryland titles und ate driviug our people off their lauds.

Ever since Ex*President Johnson bccauie tho mau choseu by tbe Logis* lature ot Tennessee to represout bcr in the Uuited Stales Seuato, the whole country has bwou filled with exciteuicut ut seeing him return to till an honored position in tho nine city which a lew years ago, he left, appareuily having exhausted hiiinelfpoluioally.uud wbeio it was coiiGJcutly anticipated that bU public career was euded. It was remembered bow ho had been attacked, iiupeuched, aud tried before tbe same body of which be is uow a member, aud tho general opinion wus, that when ho had tho opportunity, be would make tho Scuute Chamber reverberate with the story of uis wrongs and, iu no equivocal manner, pay oU'old scorcs. llcuce, wbeu it was uuuouuccd that bo would speak on the well tried Louis* una question, the galleries were crow ded with an expuctuut throng, who, no doubt, firmly believed that, though ibis was bis text, bo would turn it to suit bis own desigus. liat Mr. .John* sou k?.cw the fpint which governed his bearers, aud at the outlet, plainly told them that they would he mistaken; that ho had no pcrsouul light to make; and.as u Senator from Teuu?.ssoe, he iutouded to discuss tbisqucstiou from a public,uot a private standpoint. Hut h. eould uot rostrum hiaiself. As he proceeded it be came evident that the remembrance of his own wrougs was fresh iu his mind, uud as be administered a severo casti gatiou to tho President of th? Uuitcd ?Mates, uo one doubted that his pcrsouul history was tho great iucitemeut which spurred him ou. .Mr Johnson basbceu much ridiculed uud jeered ut fur his coustaut allusion* 10 the Constitution, aud the zealous care with which he has ever professed to guard that instrument, flu wouder ihut he has. When it is remembered how the political power wLioh eclipsed uud threw him out ot office has acted ; how it has defiantly trampled upou that busi* of our government, aud even wished to Bet it aside altogether, aud establish n military dtfpuiUui in its eicad, it could ouly, cousisteutly, jeer uud ridicule auy umn or set of men who alone professed to lavor tho prin ciples of tho Republic. iiut with all Mr. Johnson's faults, cowardice is not oue, and therefore fuel iug himself right, jeers uud scoffs have had uo terror tor huu; bui ho bus ul wa)s gouo right on, uureprcescd and irrcpiessible, aud his atieudunt sue euss has vindicated his honesty uud sincerity.
