of Mr. Rives, of Albemarle, in the Virginia
Senate, on the bill "providing for the purohaa
and manufacture of arms," appears in the
Virginia newapaper. He Btka, what ia the
use of ,an armory? "Wo were never aafer,"
he says, "from John Browns than now," and
adds: "I have no fear that John Brown has
sown any dragons' teeth among us, from which
armed men will spring up; or that for our age
any, irom any quarter, win aare to tread in
hia fatal footsteps. For ail such ruthless in
vaders of the Commonwealth, the calm and
deliberate execution of our laws will bear for
ever a grand lesson and a terrible warning.
Bistory will din in th eara of any that shall
dare approach our bordera for such guilty pur
poses a perpetual 'mmtnto snort.' I assume,
therefore, thia armory ia not necessary to pro
tect aa from any of the demented admirers or
aucoeaaora of this defunct John Brown. Are
we threatened by any of our sister States? Ia
any one of them arming or fonndlng armories
to prepare for an attack upon at? I believe
not. Peace la la all oar bordera and around
us. ,. We only have onr partisan quarrels true,
ialtgratio amorit such as many other happy
families have. An armory is not necessary,
then, to repel any anticipated attack from other
States. Let those who plot against the integ
rity of the Constitution take themselves out
of the Union if they can. For my part, I
deem Virginia aafer nnder It than out of it."
