THREE CHEERS
FOR
VIBgINIA!i
While sitting in our sanctum last
night, thinking that we were to have
some rest, we were aroused from our
reflections by the receipt of the fol
lowing glorious intelligence, relative
to the "Old Dominion." The news
is so cheering, that we consider we
would be doing an injustice to our
readers if we tfailed in etting out an
extra. Now that Virginia is out, we
mayL expect Kentucky and the other
backward States to follow her cx

The Scotch Marriage Law.-The
Glasgow Journal has the following
remarks on the above subject:
Our marriage law declares that,
where men and women live together,
and pass in society as married per
sons, they shall be held to be mar
ried, and be bound to perform all the
duties and bear all the obligations of
married life, It is remarkable what
a salutary moral effect this closing of
the back door exerts on people of an
erratic and lawless disposition. Per
ceiving that concubinage affords them
little or no exit from the bonds of
matrimony. they very rarely try the
unavailing experiment. BPut what,
it will be asked, about the excessive
iamoant.of illegitimacy in Sootland-?
Let us first answer this question by
asking another. Why does the ille
gitimacy of Scotland appear excess
ive as compared with that ofEngland.?
Simply because every .illegitimate
birth is here recorded, while.in En
gland only afractionalp6rtionofsuch
births are known to the public. The
offspring of all the countiec concubi
nages of England pass in the books
of the registers as legitimate, although
they are illegitimate. The distinc
tion in Scotland -betwixt married
and unmarried life is so distinctly
drawn, that it is imposible to pass off
a birth as other than it really is.
There is no doubtful middle ground
of concubinage here over which to
throw a veil of external decency,
while all within is illegitimate.and
immoral; and this alone is the cause
why the illegitimacy of Scotland
figures so disproportionately to her
moral reputation in our birth statis
tics. The great object .of our mar
riage law is to strengthen the weak
er sex, and in this object it has suc
ceed beyond reasonable .calculation.
In no country is reekless and un
principled seduction more difficult,
and consequently more rare, than- in
Scotland.
The California Legislature have
passed an act prohibiting the marriage
of a white man with a negroe, mulatto,
Chinese or Indian; the offence to be
punished with fine or imprisonment
and its proof to be admitted as-prima
face evidence that the person commit
ting it is not a white citizen, nor en
titled to privilege as such.
Cincinnati Mliiciypal Election.
The Cincininati Gazette, (Republican,)
says that its party, by the recent elec
tion in that city, has been" cleaned
out :,'
The returns do not present a single
redeeming feature-every candidate
on the Fusion ticket has been elec
ted by a sweeping majority. In No
vember, at the Presidential election,
the Republicans, although they car
ried the city by a plurality, were
in a minorty of 2,400. The average
Fusion majority is now judging from
the returns at hand up to present wri
ting, over 4,000. The .eepublicans
were exceedingly lukewarm. Very
little work was done at the ;polls or
elsewhere. The opposition, on the
other hand, worked hard, andfor this
they are rewarded by an overwhelm
ing victory.
Why is a loafer in a printing office
like a shade tree ? Because we are
glad when he leaves.
A beautiful day, Mrr.. Jenkins."
yes, very pleasant, indeed." "Good
day for the race.,' "Race, what race?"
"The human race." 'Oh, go along
with your stupid jokes; get up a
goodone like the one with which ;
sold Day." "Day, what Day ?" "The
day we celebrate,,' said Jenkins,
who went on his way rejoicing.
