It has been tho fashion of late yeara to (peak
of Virginl as "old," "MDlie," "worn out,'
and "exhausted," and to contrast tho pTwent
age of her small politicians with the more glo-
nous epoch, when ihe produced bo large a ihare
of the generals and statesmen who achlwd our
national independence, and who made It perma
nent and fruitful by the Institution and ruccrts
fill working of a wise form of government
The comparison of tho Floyd, tho Wises, and
the Extra Billy Smiths, with Iho Washington,
.Te Action n, and Madlsons, of tho olden times,
has pointed many a familiar Antithesis, Mr
Klnla, onco the leading State ofa free Republic,
and now elrsffglcd In tho mlro as tho tall of the
mongrel region on the flulf, marks a descent too
nbrlouswid too painful to escape observation
and reproach.
Hut while It Is nndoubtedl true that Irglnta
has retrograded In a material point of view vv Itli
In two generations, not positively, lint by com
parison with that growth and expansion nil
al-ont her, which sho liekrxluo physical ad
vantage to have enabled her, not onlj to parti
clpate In, but to have outstripped and while
the moral declension Is beyond gusgo and nu j
sure from the ancient high and free tone of her
political principle to her latter days of devo
tion to the single Idea of so directing public af
fairs as to Increase the profits of that Infinitely
base occupation, the breeding of negro slues
for sale; It la certainly also true that the Ir
anians of the present day have vindicated their
descent from a good stock, by high displays of
Intellectual and physical vigor, and by unsha
ken courage and constancy, political and mili
tary, In this, the most tremendous civil war In
history, and of which she has been forced to
bear the brunt by her geographical position
If there has been anvdecadenco of the manly
1 virtues In the Old Dominion, It Is not because '
the present generation has proved Itself cither
weak or cowardly, or unequal to the greatest
emergencies. No people, with so few numbers,
ever put Into the field, and kept there so long,
troops more numerous, brave, or more efficient,
or produced generals of moie merit, In all the
kinds and gTades of military talent. UU not
a worn out and effete race which has produced
Lee, Johnson, Jackson, Ashby, and Stuart H
Is not a worn out and efleteraccwhlchforelgh
teen months has defended its capital against
the approach of an enemy close upon their bor
ders, and outnumbering them thirty to oue. It
Is not a worn out and effete race w hleh has pre
served substantial popular unity under all
the strain and pressure and sacrifices of
this unprecedented war. "Let hlstorv,"
as was said of another race, "which re
cords their unhappy fate as a people, do Jus
tice to their rude virtues as men.' They are
fighting madly In a bad cause, but they are
fighting bravely. They have few cowarda and
no traitors. The hardships of warfare endured
without a murmur by all classes, and the dan
gers of war without flinching, by the newest
conscripts, while their gentry, the offshoot of
their peculiar soclalsystem, havethrown them
selves into the camp and field with ull the difh
and high spirit of the European nohlw of 1 1 e
middle ages, rlsklmr, without apparent rotiernj
upon a desperate adventure, all that mcu v ilu
and after a generation of peace, and repose, an I
security, which had not emasculated thrm, j re
seating to their enemies a trained nod intrepid
front, as of men born and bred to war.
It will be the reproach in history agalu-a the
wisdom of tho statesmen ofVIrglnU, that they
permitted their r ommonwcalth to Uv diagged
into the vortex of a war which they deprecated
and certain.) did not originate. The trior Hat
a grievous one and has been luosl grievously
punished; but If the statesmen of Virginia, as
distinguished fiom the people, are tpi c tally re
sponsible for It, It la not In any matter of recent
fonduet,but forthelrparttelpulon In that Ion
t rainlngof public sentiment, of w hleh thepreent
position of Virginia is anlnevkahloresult. The
people of that State (wo refer of course to that
geographical division of It which I rebellious)
w ere not goaded into this war by their politi

of which the true character was at oneo un
masked by thcuttack on Fort Sumter.

The fate of Virginia was decided, nut last

which he presented tho question, without giv

THE NATION'S FltCEDMICN.
It Is perfectly clear, In the light of past Ms-

tho most dangerous and extensive plot of t roason

We have every confidence, therefore, that tlm
sovereigns of Amertrn will rtirhllv dlinnsa of

really had a )oung Napoleon among us whose
genius was cqtiil to such pretensions.
From Ball's BlnfT ho telegraphed that the
dispositions were excellent the dispositions
being his own, and the slaughter the result.
From Manassas he dispatched a paulc-etrickcn
retreat of the enemy. From Yorktown he dls
patched that the enemy was demoralized aud
panic-stricken, his victory complete, and he
should push tho enemv lo the wall. From
Williamsburg he telegraphed his own dcmoril
Ized and panic-stricken condition, and said he
would tr) to defend himself. Ho has never
been near cuough to a battlo to know how It
wis fought, and has, In two well known In
stances, telegraphed Ignorant and erroneous
accounts of battles. At Williamsburg und
Seven PIiks he did gross Injustice to men and
ofllcirs bv Ids Ignorant dispatches, which ho
wa- afierwar.U compelled to modi f), but this
could not retrieve the effect.
He dispatched to the Government that Hie
retreat lo James river was made with tlm Iosr
of I ut oue gun and one wagon, which broke
clonu. i do traditional icats oi uiciougoow
seem Inconsiderable compared with uchiNao
leoulc performances. After tho battle ofAn
lielam he telegraphed, Sept. 15th, that "tiie
enemv Is making for tho river In u ierf.ct
panic," aud that he w as " hut r) Ing everything
forward to press tho retreat lo theutmon."
nd later ou the same day that "Inform ithn
at this moment received confirms the rout nnd
demoralization of the rebel army. c are fol
lowing as rapidly as the men can mov e." el
four da) a later no advance had been made, aud
lie then telegraphed) Lat night the cnem)
abandoned Ids position, leaving his dead and
wounded on the field. We are again In pursuit.
I do not know whether he Is falling back to an
Interim position or crossing the river. We ma)
sufiiv claim a victory.1
Afier his four days vigorous pursuit of the
routed, demoralized, panic-stricken enemy, ho
telegraphed lhat they had withdrawn from the
battle-held In tbeiilght.andhekne.v not where
they had gone, but a the) w ere gone ho might
safel) tlaini t victory, which it seems was
doubtful mil II iho cnem)' Inteuttons were
known tin the same da) ho sent the remark
al ' ilUpnteh t "Plcaanton U driving thu cue
in) ueroia Ihu river. Our victor) was com
i hie. The enemy Is driven I aek lnto irglula.
Marjluid and Peuus)lvanlu arc now nafe."
W It h uiiinu nt lonal candor ho makes hi v lclor)
lo bang In tho balance until he ascertained the
Inn ntlm.s of the enemv If they Intended to
leavt, he Intended to advance, and If lour da) a
after the bittle the) retired, his victor) was
complete. Are these tho dispatcher ofa mill
larv genius which becomes a young Napoleon
without smelling gunpowder Ale the) el
deuces of mtlltar) or any other ablllt), unless
II be with that aboriginal weapon the long
bow ?
In this war, eommauders have had credit for
latent militar) capacity on tho ecoro of their
want of heart hi tho eause. But tho logic of
this vvlllhaidl) larstatemeul. Thalugeucral
is treacherous to the cause lie pretend to fight
lor. Is no evidence that ho has either militar)
a par Ity or e oil rage These must be establish
ed b) sonio other proof,
It seems Incredible thattho deMliilcrf of this
gi eat t oiinir) , v here, alone1, the popular apa-
It) has been developed lo the pltchof self-government,
can inve been committed to such u
man fur a )ear, while1, In tho sight of the whole
pcoj le. It was gliding down tho rapids to the
ubvss. YAlmt horrible nightmare has held thf
senses of the eople and of tho authorities
Tho responBlbitii) rcaheahf)ond this Imbecile
Instrument of national ruin, to thoso whoue lu
ll nciico and power havo retained him. As fall
un hecuuu appaicnt, thu svtlft eulogies which
hilled his elevation from tho supporters of the
Gov eminent, the expression ofthclr hopes from
him, vvere replaced b) tho praise oud clamor
oih defence of those uho eleslrolho fatluie of
the Government. I very one who charged that
Iho North was guilt) ol tho war, lhat the piir
lHje of Iho w ar w us to destroy the Const 11 utlou,
tint the 8ou Hi vveru In the right, and who do
sired military failure that It might result In re
storing tho traitors to power by our subinlHlou,
wan, und Is, a defender of McClellan.
It might havo excited suspicion when the
e uemles of tho i ausu w ero iho urdent suppoi t
ers of ti geueril whoie course has been a con
tinual failure. But eiieli was tho lufatuatlon
ttiat this wits acccpteet as honest and loyal pub
lic opinion, and it operated to fasten thislerri
I la Imbccilil) ontheeountr), Lvcn tho testi
mony of tho eneni)'s oflleers that they regard

with great lutereht tho attacks of Iho radicals

was aided b) correspondents of n treacherous

write him up. By this means we havehad the
stercotvptd announcement lu every battle i
M McClellau wan In Ihu thickest of tho fight,
ra1l)lug thu soldiers and animating them b)
hU presence."
Out of lhisl)iug correspondence haa chletl)
grown the falsehood of his popularlt) with tlm
soldiers. It Is Impotslhlo lhat a geueral can
bo popular willi an ami) which hodestrojs
without ever achieving a victoi).
But the most melanchol) feature of thu news
paper support of this terrible failure In cause
the weakest li lhat which arose rurelyfrom
newspaper rlvalrjj which vrrole up a com
mauder who was sinking the nation to ruin, be
cause a cotemporarv took a just view of him.
It In calculated to give humanity sufficient hu
mllltv to see pucu motives. In such a momen
tous matter, govern a pees which assumes to
transcend tho ordluar) weakiiess of mankind
Tho removal of Geueral McClellau Is the
lurulug ot u couise which tended Inevllablr
to national destruction Ii temovcB a horrible
Incubus from the national energies It shuts
up a growing eh asm which was swallowing the
resources and patilolic sacrifices of the people.
No act that tho Piesldent could do would so io

the Lxecutlve eflort which ha displaced this
fatal commander will rlae to a determination
that the icnources which iho people are fo geu
