As the governor, he is tied to lair treatment; and as a i, we have nothing but kindness him. But his attitude towards Jamestown commission, aud his ic admission that he yielded to iture and took a position with nou-partisian body concerning nilicaut patronage which com d such a liberal democrat us jveruor MacCorkle, and so streu a republican as F. M. Staunton, ssigu lather than subordinate thing to politico or to the gov 's wishes, is a new departure, state s participation in exposi has alwa\b been on lines oth*n partisan politics; but the Jauies ^ (position is doomed to have ig but republicans lake pm t in [Vest Virginia exhibit. The itural department is under Mr. . a republican; the educational menl is in charge of Superin* it Miller and his son, both re ins; the coal exhibit is haud Neil Uobinsou and his sou, fpublicans. It was, therefore, serious a matter that Miss k, a most competent and de Charleston girl, should be by Messrs. MacCorklo and >n to be matron.

Right-thinking republicans do not exi*ect or desire that democrats shall proscribe, and this civic-hislotic event made a po litua! machine. The statement of the go\eruor admits that his reasons * ore porTtical, and that he is either a bitter partisian or too weak to stand the criticisms oflhat kind of people who would Interfere to ouBt an educated, deserving lady from a position to which she ha been fairly appointed. The action of Governor MacCorkle and Mr. Staunton iu resigning rather than have their action reversed or ignored, is commended by the peo ple. They could not do otherwise. On the whole, we are sorry rather than angry. It is the state that has beeu injured by the governor's un fortunate course.—Charleston Ga I xette.
