To the Editor of the W'At'j:
Tae nomination of Judge Thompson, of Staunton, fr,
Senator, commends itself at once to all who hare tb<
opportunity to know of his intrinsic qualifications, si
peculiarly prtper. A high-toned Virginia genii-man o
tho old eehool, acccmpliehed in mind and manners,
trained at the feet of the Gamaliels of Virginia states
meu, hi* selection as one of our first Confederate Sena
tors would give assurance that Virginians still bought
talent and learning and chivalrous inbgrity as indl-prn
sahle characteristi c in her public representatives,
i 11 the deba'ee of the Convention of 18tiy- :0, Judge
Thompson—then perhaps the youngest man ot that cele
brated.body—maintained a most enviaUe stand. 11 is
-t-eccfcis evince a reniai kabie appreciation of tho practi
cal issues involved, an acumen and depth of though-,
and elegance of diction—ad b 'tokening qualities of the
highest ordi-r. An F.tsteru man by birth, his sincere
and able advocacy of the political rights of the West
•on tor him iu that section a reputation and regard
•hi. b le-rnlt d iu his -election at an uauruallr early agi
to the jjdgeshipof in most important circuit, which
uow tor thirty years has been his adopted home.
H.s eminence as a jurist is conferred, yet his chival
rous character and popu ar sympathies would perhaps
have indicated the political forum as his forte : hence,
utrhapa it is, that with the most unremitting study in
his profession, he has, in his taste for general reading,
apt “posted'' to a remarkable extent on all the politic pi
topics ot the limes.
A! hough attached to tho Uuion as our father* made
it, ar.d i-'aloua for its preservation as such, his instinctive
aversion to Lie mere idea of subjugation by Mich a crea
ture as Lincoln sufficed of itself to make him an earnest
tdveoate of secession. ffaving never been a politic iai^
a the ordinary .euse of that Urn), be nan Imte “no
frit ads to reward, and no enemies to punish.” T -e Old
loinmonwealdi will honor herself by always selecting
such meu for her natioua! representatives
