THE SENATORIAL ELECTION.
To f As Kditnr of tkt Wkig:
An Alabama gent'eman, who tskss ear* (o let ua
know that he waa io Congress one-, undertakes, through
the columns of the “Whig," to instruct the Virgiiia
people *8 to their duties in reference to the senatorial
election. I think, as Alabama has already elected two
Senators, her o'd politicians might permit Virginia to
hsve two without their interference. But what are the
potent conedaratbns which this rx-Corg essman presses
upon tho Virginia public? 1st. That Mr. IJuiter wield
*J immense power and influence in the CjucciU of the
old Government. Concede this, and it strengthens the
argument ot those a ho oppose Mr. Hunter’s transfer
from present national position, where kit counsels
can be impressively oommuuuated to the whole Con
federacy, to ooe where they oan, iu the weaker branob
of the Confederate Congress, be but feebly enforced
It is precisely because, ui Premier of the Ad minis' ration
he cau be mom influential than in any other position
that some of Mr. Hunter’s warmeat admirers earnestly
protest against the iufl sauce of tho * who, tor some un
explained reason, ate trying to reduce him to the lee*
controlling position of Confederate State feet a or. I
confess, however, that I cm one of thcsi who have
been skeptical about the vast abilities aud influence of
Mr. Hunter. The course which a little hand of his fol
lower* are now endeavoring to make him pursue would
more than conti-m all tho doubts which I bavo filter
tain^d on th’s point. No in in of really great abilities,
aud of that true ambition which great abilities inspire,
could be induced to exchange the pUce which Mr.
Hunter now holds in the Esecuiive Department of the
Government, during Its first Administration, for a seal
in the Senate. The fact that he cousen's to such a conr,o
is conclusive that he i« defective in high intellect, or in
that strong nerve, without which high intellect Is of no
value The allegation that Mr. Ranter exercised any
contrclling itfluence in the old Government, is easy to
nuke, but, hard to prove. Afurr fifteen oi twenty years
servi;e in the old Congress, wfcat great measure, promot:
ing the interest oi his country, do we owe to Mr Hunt
er? His Land Bill was the measure upon which he
stakid most—aud his friends never feel pleasant when
that is named. Wherein has the old Commonwealth of
Virgiuia, or oven Alabama, derived tnaterisl bemfit from
the power and icfiuence of Mr. Hunter? Pshaw! M .
Hunter ha* shown a good deal of shrewdness, not as a
statesman, but ss a politician. Ha,.end his little set, are
•'ways very kind and liberal to bis political opponents
when elections impend. The suspiciors of their own
friends, which they then incur, are always removed by
the etrict and rigid fidelity wi h-which they obey far'y
rule after they eccomplish their purports. Virgin inns
have memory, if ex Congressmen from Alabama have
21. The nrxt point which our quondtm Congressman
from Aikbima presents to the Virginians is, that Hr
Hunter basso much chancier and ir. 11 lence throughout
the South, that hi* absence from the 8“nate would be t
national calamity. This would be a good Ard if it had
uot been so often played. ,:pon this cry tho Virginia
d-mucracy wire carried iu the Presidential contest for.
Hunter, ever Wise. When brought to the lest in the
Charleston Convention, I do not rc member that Sou hern
admiration for Mr. Itunler bb.-d T ry freely. Opm
this assuror ce, Virginia was pnv died upon to present
Hr. Hunter as in r car.d.da'e for the I’resideory. The
Southern support of Mr. Huoter was so small that the
pride of etery Virginian wa« stone at tho exhibition —
Now this old song I* again on tho placard.
lid. Tho “ Secretaryship of State" is a sinecure! one
in which Mr. Hunter's abilities cannot find play. Is our
now Government (hns to be pronounced,in our own pub
lic sctlon, a uullity v Is the Virgiuia I.egislaturethus to
declare its expe la ion thjat the Southern Confederacy is
to couti. u> to o:eut>y solnsiguificaut a pl*ce Iu the great
family of naiiose, that Mr. Hunter is belittle! by con
tinuing any farther connection with our foreign affiirs?
What more glaring declaration of distrust of our strength
and permanent nationality, could l>e made, than wiil be
nude by the Virginia Legislature, when ip elects Mr.
Hunter to the Senate on this reasoning g The fact that
hi* friei d i venture to press him upon this ground, is a
cot elusive argument again*! his election. We have to
f*ith in ourptsiiion as a t ation, and hence Mr. Hunter
must he taken from the .State Department. This is wirre
than a weak argument. It is a’ the origin of a naiidn,'
its first outset in life, th&t i'B foreign relation* require
the ablest management. Thomis J fTurson was Secre
tary of Siate, when the FjJer.il Government was in its
infancy. If Mr. Hunter underrates the value of the pc
sitiou which ho now bolds, he baa the consclitiou to
know that his distrust is shared by a gentleman from
Alabama, who sat in Congreis for four years. But tbs
gentleman and Mr. Uuuter have the misfortune to d (Ter
in their estimate of the important of such position)
from some of the first men whom America has produced.
As I said Thomis Jefferson was Secretary of State, when
the Fud-ral Government waa^u its infancy. Iu the e^
ly days of the Federal Republic, thn plaos was fi'lod
successively by such Virginians as Edmond Randolph
Jjhti Marshall, Jaiues Madison, and James Monroe, in
later days it was tided by John g. Adams, Henry Clar,
Louis MiLaue, Daniel Wobs er, and John 0. Calhoun,
if the position could employ such abilities m tbore, it is
curious tbat it should be too small for Mr. K M. T.
Hunter. Lst gentlemen who urge Mr. Hunter for the
Senate,.foi bear to do so upon grounds which are *o oh
noxicui to just crithism as this. Wh. tbcr Mr. Hunter
wante to get out of the illustrious p'see, which he now
fills, is bis own matter. Hut tbat he should use the
moral power of Virginia, ss_ as io inti ct*. blow on the
public confdjcoe, in tbe a ah lily of our Government, is
the matter of tbe people.
If Mr. Hunter seeks to jump from tile preainl fc’gli
place into tbe Senate, simply to (xoinds some one «bo

people w II forbid, in loses not to be misunderstood, i

THE DEFINITION AND PUNISHMENT OF TREA
To I hi Kiitor cf hi Whig:
You will confer a favor ou me by correcting an errer
into which I wot inadvertently betrayed, by net having
before me either tbe U. a Constiiu ioa or the 0. 8. Con
stitution, when I prepared the article entitled " Tn aaon
a State, and not a Federal, off'uc*." A distinguished
friend has kindly brought to my notice the ertor I com
mitted, and I 1 a>teu to oorrect it The mistake, to
wbiuh I tefer, consisted iu my sta'in; that both tie
Federal and tbe Confederate Constitutions authoriz' d
Cougrrai to diflne Treason, whereas, In fac»/theoffenie
is (ipr.fslj d. fined in each of these Instruments, while
“ the laws of Congress il J but provide for qarrying out
tbe provision of the fundamental U*.
I am happy, however, in believing that the mislnke
was no*, a vital one, and does not at all affect the valid
ity of the argument, which was intended to show tbat
sovereignty resided ia the Sutei, as the prineipium it
font of all political power, and that treason consisted in
the denial aud usurpation of sovereign power by overt
acta of vioIeDoe, and could not be committed against a
mare agency, call it by wbat name you choose.
I pres lino the error I committed arose from the fact
that bath the Constitutions authorize Congress to dec'aic
the punishment of treaaco, while I was under the ire*
preesion thatfpi'.hority was given to define the c fierce.
THE NEW MILITIA LAW. ,
' •* Camp ni*r Yo»ktww», }
December lb, 1801. j"
To Iht K lit or of th» M'fiig:
Being an humble private in tbe ranks of the Ccnfed
trite army, and, as such, being as much entitled to the
benefit And protec ion cf law and justice as tbe higVet
officer in the land, whether c'vil, judicial o* military, lb:
writer respectfully requests a small space in the columns
of your valuable juurosl, as his only means of bringing
to the notice of our present Legialiture, an egregious
blunder, which he, in common with every one of our
gallant volunteers with whom he has conversed, Lone.-tly
believes tbe 8'a‘s Convention in its last section coimrlt
te1, io its ordinance concerning the reorganization oi the
militia of the State. Among the alterations propoet d
in said Convention, wc observe that all men cepiule of
bearing arms between the ages of twenty-ona and thir
ty-one years, are put in the active class, eubj :ct to te
oalled first into service, whilst those between the ages
of eighteen aid %enty-one, and thir'y-one and fjrty
tive, have been put in tbe reserved class—tolu'ly ignor
ing the claims to bs put in the reserved clefs, of these
volunteers who were the first to enlLt, whose ages may
be tft-twecu twenty one and thirty-one, aud whose term
i rf service wdi expira at the end of the twelve mouths
(or which they enlisted. It is a fact generally admitted,
that most of our present volunteers are between the ages
oi tweuty-on^aud thirty-one years, and that their pre
sent term of enlistment will t apire some Time daring
next spring; but why there shot 1 i have been this dif
c; imit ation made by our Oonvenlion, against a certain
class of,cur citizens, and in favor of another doss, of a
curtain ege, whtn il. have an tqial interest in the suc
cess of a common cause, which is that of our country,
the same ability to wield the s* ord in ifa defence, the
nf iKu damn td«* and lost thmnrh not least the
Mine tax re to pay, it t^ll is the comprehension of most
meu to coi j teture.
We think it nothing more than right and fair towards
ihh community, to let eveyy man capable of br&rijg
arms between the ages of eighteen and forty-fire, who
has not prerinosly been in service daring the war, tak ■
sn equal chance to be drafted or not drafted into ser
vice, provided that method should bare to be resorted
to, in order to keep an efficient army In the field.
It is, moreover, uuderetood that a bill u about to he
iutrodneed Into the Legislature for the purpose of
farcing into service sgain those volunteers whose term
o' s.rvico will expire at the end of twelve months,-ur
l.ss they re-enlist immcdiiUly. Whan Lincoln issued
hie notorious p,-- e’.amatiou of April last, tbrextening to
sulj igate the South, and we eaw the immioeut dargsr
with which our country was threatened, and, with a pj
iriotic fire and xifl, rushed forward tb its defenc*, and
endured all the hardships and privations, thtx djngtri
and exposures cf the prMent campaign, lulls did ve
imagine that, because we were the firat to obey our
country's call in -the timo of lie greatest need, it would
subject us to the ban of bsieg immediately pressed iu'o
aervioe at the expiration of our present term of enlist
ment. As a consideration for the oobli chivalry of
t ipse who were the liist to obey the call of duty and
pitrintism in volunteering their services and ex nosing
their lives in defence of their country, we think it noth
ing more than just, that those vcluntoers whose term of
eilistment expires at the end of twelve months should
bs pat in the "reserved clies," without respect to age,
with the privilege of remaining in the reserved class, nr
of reorganising themselves into cotfpauie-s, battalions or
r -gimeti's, alter being mustered out of service, arid (n -
listing again as they may elect.* If left to the free will
of the volunteers, there is but litrie doubt that the most
of them will readily re-et list immediately at the expira
tion of their present term, should their services bn
net dad; but they bate an invincible horror of any
measures being taken to coerce them into service again,
whilst so Urge a portion of onreitix -ns bare remained ail
-the time at their quiet homes, attending to their buaimea
mattrrs, never having expended their first dollar in t! c
cause of the Southern Onnf.-deracv, with their horn s
and tffjcU protected from invasion and spoliation by
the enemy, by the bravery and self saciificing spirit of
those volunteers who have left home, tfleets, business
matters, and f iends that were near and dear to them,
to mott tfle mercenary foe, and turn back the tide of
invasion from our soil. It is to be hoped that our pres
ent Legislature will take this matter iu hand, end divest
it of iis most obnoxious features; otherwise there will
be a vast deal of d ssatisfactiou, if not commo.ion and
insubordination, in acme of our triopj at the expiration
tiou of their term of service. Moping that this appet I
may fi id a place in your valuable and intl-iential newspa
per, I am, Ac., A SOLDIER.
