CAN GAMBLIN'; BE SUPi’UESSED :
To the Hi;tor of the Whitj\
A communication, by “K'skiae," wi'h tha above head
ing, which appeared in your issue of P. e< mber 7>b, bai
filled me, as I doubt not it baa the minds of maty o
your reader*, with sorrow. Whatever thi cbj ctofl'm
writer inuy hare beeo, the article will cot serve any
other purpose than that of palliating the vice of gam
biing—a vice, aa tiie author of the communication con
leasee,' of no ertfinary lasgni-udc.” Ha wishes to e<\
gambling promptly and finally suppressed, and wt;al
imana dm* he usa to further l^is important result T IP
'*** scarcely any language but what will inevitably srive
ta encourage thoao who commit this vice to prosecute
their ruiunm career. He cites lor their gratification,
whst he alleges are Scriptural and Ap eio'iua! extr.iplr*
He t* lit them that, “bifore the tl »od,” chance was a god
it whose al.ar millions worrhipptd, tr.d that when Busa
fiat and Matthias, aa recorded in the first chapter of the
Acts of tfce A|VW'lfa, l und themselves rival aspirants for
a vacant ApOi.lcxhip, "‘they result'd to gamble fjr it, ai d
that Matthias wou it.” Now, to say nothing of the un
happy manner in which the latter pirt of tha extract
*oJ penned, 1:1 rao a.-k “Enkiuc" where le found cu
hit any species of gambling prevailed before tht> 3rod ?
Who cr what is bis authoiity for the statement? The
!!b!e says nothing on the suljsef, never mentions a
ludividuol of thi*. period ns I aving anything to
lu with games of chsuce. If the Iiibia is silent on the
adject, one is entirely at a lost to know whence the
sriter of this article gut his information, for there is
10 other authmtio history of the Aut 'delu/iau en, or.
ndred, any bis:ory at all. If the sejeriioa could have
icon proven, and the fact csUh'ished, too ptruid wa
: rtaiuiv a mo?t unfortunate oue to refer to, for f'Erik
ne," who admits the immorality of gambling, might
’cry remily hav. remetrbered that it was on account of
he vice* of tbo men of that time that the II iod camo
nd swept them away. Who informed the author cl
bias wore “rival aspiianta” for the vacant Apostle
bip ? The account iu Acts, which he quotes, says
othi; g of their being “aspirants” to the ollico, says
othing of their being rivals, or desiring the posiliou
t all. What is the authority for saying that they re
olved to gamble for it? Tbo oocoujt does'nt state
rat they hid anything to do with wuit was done on the
cca ion. It does not inform us that then two Die
iplcs Wire even present at the time referred to. Wh»r
oos he get his iuformitiou from » If ho had examined
.e narrative, instead of trtntirg to some vaguo reaol
clioa of it, ss he e- rms to bare dottr, he wcu'.d have
va tha: tin lot w s cast by o'herf. It is rvid nt, from
>•' language, that these two Disciples h ul nought to du
'th the net which ilcvated them to office. Tuey diJ
a it a iibie tor the position, nor did anybody gamble or I
it cocimjj, as cm bj shjwu by a most*'tuple Ulus

t-h as was ispd by the Applies iu tho si lection of One

i .India, and by tue Rinisn soldiers as to who should

rieJ out, would it not s.rik' a d -ath blow at all reform

a lrnit of d spute.
Bat men will not tolerate a law-forbidding gamblii
with cards, when tho gambling of trade is allowed ai
protected. This is another argument. It clir.oit ca
ries its rcfutatim on its face, from the simple fact tin
trade lacks the essential feature »It'ch constitutes gam!
ling. Tiicre is no gaining jettr neighbor’s goods, will
out giving him an c quiralMt. You part with good*, an
get money. There is mer< ly in the transaction a calot
latiou of probabilities ard the laws of trade, which th
mod comprehensive mind makes by. If a man <1
ccives hit neighbor, of course it is a mew csss of fraud
But there is no such thing in the case as two men Intel
ing in a room, aud one, after the mankgrtpent of somi
pieces of paper, carrying off the money ol the other
without giving him one cent’s equivalent. Of oours
there is exchange or trade cannot exist; but in <$im
b'ieg nothing is given, while the otkrr is deptived o
everything. The want of piralicihui, between the tw<
do’s, is almost ton palpnble [to allow of dsetigsion.
This writer is, ol course, no gambler, as he fells us »o
but he has certainly taken np this plinsibiiity, eo efu r
heard among the advocate* of this ptactioe, without be
a oaing on it the analyst* which ho is evidently capabh
of giving it. I commend bis argument on this point tc
his re-examination.
The more I read thi* article, Mr. Ed-tor, the more I
am struck with its want of logical coherence and fores.
“Excitement men mus. have," ho tells us, and beeauss
tho minds of men, la accordance with a law of tbeir na
ture, love aud cultivate innocent enthusiasm in the line
| of sculpture, painting, music, astronomy, poe'ry, elc
Tiet.ce, etc., therefore no attempt tacurb the indulgence
! of a guilty and pernicious passion like that of g swing
] can be ripened to be succcr-sful. Gould any reasoning
possibly be more unsound * Ninety-niuo men out of
evety hundred, ho iufotois us, hate cultivated "a card
enthusiasm," and it is “a pet passion of tho million.” Now,
if by “ctrd enthusiasm,” ho meins a pa-riou for guiub"
ling for money ; and, by the subsequent lauguage, that
giming for the put pises of gain is "a pet passion of the
| million,” 1 mast be permitted to doubt the correctness of
| this estimate of the proportion such p< rsous hear to the
1 community. Tie present writer has never I'm d or visit
| cj in a community in Virginia, or heard authentically of
[ ou»\ »h<*ro the proportion of gameticra w*d greater li*u
that of ten to a hundred, if it was that even. I do t ot
thluk that there is a neighborhood of gentlemen in Vn
giniit where they would uot deem it aa insult to have it
said of them that ninety niao out of a hundred of them
had cultiva'el a passion for cards, or, in other words,
played cards fer mouey, for we arc talking of this, and
nothirg vise. Because of the wide prevalence of this
praeiioe, this writer inlets that “any lsw which sttllrs at
tho fullest fruition of this pet pavion” will bo incessantly
thwarted and foiled in its execution. Mod, he says,
“can do it(and they will " This is his position, eud yet
h» winds up his article by recommending a law fotbid
ding gamblirg, except la certain legal x>d fstablisl
m us. Would not a law of Ihig sort strike at the
r'u'Utt ar.d frtttt fruition of this passion * If a roan
must walk cr ride, say three miles in a city, to reach a
lawful gambling house, and cannot game elsewhere or.
penalty of going to the penitentiary, or paying a heavy
linn, is ibis uo strike at the freed fruition of his pas,ion,
an] if it H, as it certainly is, how, according to tLi»
than that exhibited in the proposition wnctf it worm
s*em to be the of j >ct of the communication to nuke,
viz ; that certain ‘ gambling houses" be licensed with
heavy penalties, .V) , to those who game elsewhere.
Let us ex unine this briefly, and then close this long
article. We must legal I) gamblirg, aa the French and
Germans, with their notoriously lew moral tone, have
done. We mu«t legalix; it, as their) two infidel nat'urs
o: Europe have done, for they arc, perhspi, the only
two distinctively ictHel oountrie* on that couliooot, and
we, in the youth cf our ration, or rather infancy, must
begin by imitating them. We must follow France,
standing as ehe does on the thin ciust of a social vol
emo, and Germany, tho confessed fountain of modern
infid. llty iu religion and morals. By way of giviug a
healthful moral impetus to tho coiifciencf of the young
cation, we must walk iu these illustrious footstep*. We
must 1 galix) “ a vico o! no ordinary maguituic," unti
onr fame as g mbltrs rises out of obscurity, into work
wide notoriety, as these French and Germans hive
emergidto their bad eminence. If tho wtiter of this
proposition had wanted to encumber it with odium, ho
could not, prrhaps, have adopted a moro cfT-ctu. 1 ra •
tbod of doing so, than by telling the readers of th« Wh g
that this law he rceommcadi is a law in Germany i nd a
law in Franc*.
We must “ legalix > gambling." Wo forbid murder,
robbery, "Under, dtu kennci«, profaco swearing, fraud
and other vices, but perhaps wc have trad.) (t t-rriblc
mistake all this while. Certain houses ought to hive
been regularly qualified by law, in which these crimes
could have been committed with legal sanction, and mo

This writer belitret that, if his proposal were aiinp’ed,
and gambling in u^lcensed housrs made a felony, tin
vice would be diminished, and frec-boro, high-spiritul
man would no longer be compelled to “ slink in a-ni

Tnis whole propusi ion, Hr. Editor, is rcry i-ummarily

THE ELECTION OF SENAT0R3.
r. To th'Editor of the W’h g :
I- In a Very abort time the Legislature cf Virginia w
a elect two Confederate State* Senator*. By a time lie

. Prior io the mecticg of the Legialature, I thought the
i ieeli’g in favor of Mr. Birbcur so strong, decided and
. extensive as to amount almost to unanimity. And it
: wa* esteemed but a jus: tribute to hU nplrncid taic.it*,
. so powerfully and so usefully exsrted iu behalf of Vir
ginia'i best and most treasured interest* for the hat ten
ye ira. •
i But M*. Hunter dHrei to step down Irom bis r xilud
place, a* S.-oretary of State, ai d seek an election to the
Confederate Senate. His claims bare been pressed, bis
qualities and qu .Plication* extolled, and Mscbinoes for
an election direussed and calculated by newspaper co •
! respondents—it may be Gorcrnruent#officialt. The re
suit shows, in the opinion tbeso wri'e:*, that Mr. !!• •
hour is tho caly opponent Mr. Hunter has Co f-ar. But
that is not all. These writers, stung to madness by life
. conviction, that, unless something cm be done, a; d 1
quickly done, by which lo depreciate Mr. Barb u
certain defeat awaits Mr. Hooter—first complain thn
Mr. Hunter his been attacked with rancor and bitternei a
—but wh.ic, how, or npon what rccas:o*i they'd® on !
stats—then turn upon Mr. Bvbonrat.d attack bitn in
mist u* just, ungenerous and unma'ly manner. To
Legislature will vindictie Mr. Uubour aud ichukc I. s
fell spirit by bis triumphant election.
Thee* writers do not stop here. They even threat* n
the L*-girlature, if they dare to keep Mr. Hunter in tl e f
great olfiee which he now fills. They ail mm to regar i j
the chances aV agairtat Mr. Hunter in the J. gUla’nre, I
but endeavor to alarm the members by a threat of grea- I
popular indignation. Now, Mr. Hunter's s rorg'.li he |
always been with the poii ciar.s, not with the mas**.— j
Ua has no hold upon them—never had. If beateu i.
the Legislature, Mr. Hiibuur would beat him much mor
with the people. Mr. Batbonr is acktowledged by all to i
be among tim most popular and influential men, with the
masse*, in tin State. Bu; who are most likely to repre
sent the people, uenbers cf the Legislature or auenj.
mous writers for the newspapers ? Again. There writer -
represent Mr. Hunter as vastly suncrior to Mr. Rarhou
I id point of ability. Iu what h»s ha ebowu it? Hub.
I answers what ?
Mr. iUibacr is a great mac, in the strictest and hqh
j eat sense 0/ tbo term. Naturo mads him great. H !
i rises with circumstances and controls thrm. Mr. Hun |
j ter las never controlled, bat always followed. Mr.

J the public action of the State, for tbo list fir* or tlx
years, than Mr. Huotef. Mr. Barbour has never await

verted miuoritias iuto majorities. Could Mr. Houti t
have l» ea*;ed the anti inter: al impravemen' current ir.

did Mr Barbour? Starting in a confessed and droop n.

| tho unqualified approvsl of the great mars of the pro
pie. li ir impossible that a young miu exercising s
in .ch mure control orer the pubic ac ion than an oh
one, liko Mr. Hunter, cm bs his inferior. Mr. J}ir

ture for several jt-ars, and hee, beyond ali doubt, ex i
{ etcised a power auJ an influence over i s delb "&tiot.s
I which no man her displayed for the space of more tbir
| a quarter of a century. But Mr. Hunter confesses t.
| incjuipitcacy iu the very act of withdrawing from tb< \
’ Cabinet at such a lim»—in the midst of one of the great- ,
I 0it struggles tho world eroruaw. Tho Executive nine 1

At ouch a moment, Mr. Hunter withes to :-brh k aw i- !
from this pea', of honor, os it is of danger—lo.ivo his
native State tmrappor e 1 in thh important point, and ge |
h'oH'df into aft easier place. Thlsii tho return which

In an heur of need and peril, he takes caro of himaedt
Let tho L-gitU’.nre, if they dar*, play in this hiimihat'ne

Sint for Mr. Hunter to go, hut where is it profitable u
Virginia for him to go.
If he is a great min, Virginia urque-linnibly want,
her greatest min at this hour in the councils cf tho E<
coalite. I! no be a confessed failure don’t shoulder bin
a3 a weight u|>on m in any patt of the Government.
Bu’ again, of oil the sheer trick*, the representation tha'

know that the able, skillful management of our Conore
lions with foreign Powers will do a* much, perhap
i more, lor a conclusion of this great struggle, than th.
i management, even, of the armies in the field.
It is for running from this great place, that Mr. Hun
. ter wishes to be rewarded. Sat can it bo that Mr. nun
. ter will for one moment consent to desert his native State
r in the gloom and dauger wh»h surround her, a d leavt
. her u ireprosua ed in the (ktbiiet. It so, the popula
i vengeance ought to be, and wili be, directed agaiist him.
He will, in future, bi treated as an ungratoful son, ol a
a generous and too confiding mother. The Legislature
. do its duty, auJ its whole duty, by the election ot
Mr. Barbour. And thusinspire the whole country with
0 m w hop.*, and greater coi.fi fence !u the sneofM cf oi.r
