The State of Virginia lias had a wonderful history. An able journal, the Cincinnati Union, reverts to it,and r*ToaIs «vine facts! that, if generally known, are little considered. The clOs >. it observes, of tiie Revolutiona ry H'/tj1 found (lie Government deeply i'n debt. Most of the States'owned large tract- ofVVcstoin land—the Gen-, oral Government owned none. Of nil the States. Virginia held (he best title to the largest amount.• Upon the invi tation of Congress, Virginia ceded all her title to all lliVluiufs ow/it'ib by her northwest of the river Ohio, and which, with the exception of the strip now known as the western Reserve, and a portion set apart as a bounty to her soldiers, embraced the territory now forming the State of Ohio, and till ot Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and those portions of Iowa and Minne sota not embraced with the Louisiana purcJvwe, and this Virginia .did, in or der that Ihe United States might, by their sale, pay the debts contracted dur ing the Revolution. Virginia was then the lending Slave State of the Sputli. Rut iu order that the General Government might the sooner sell their lands and realize their value, she agreed that Slavery, except fpr the punishment of crimes of vyjneh the party should Hest be convicted, .should be forever excluded from the Territory. And with a wise fore thought for the benefit of the purcha sers, and the lauds thus donated, Vir ginia also agreed that one section of land,, in each towiuhip.—one thiriv sixtli parf ofjfhc entire gift—should be appropriated for the use of schools. The State of Connecticut, .claiming the laud embraced within tins WgiAei'n Reserve of Ohio, rpVeit to make a similac gift, Sbe retained hei: lauds and sbld them, and placed tlie proceeds ,iu her.pw.n Treasur y, to he used as :> sehpol fund; not for the people of. the M i'slarn Rc-ervy. but for those ol‘ Con Heelmut alone; and lo this day, the interest, wo understand, is' so used.

They lire as venge ful as ever; and are rapidly endorsing 15 ro widow1's policy of exterminating ail ■who will not bend the knee to the ne gro. At the Mulatto Convention in Philadelphia, Roast Rutter paid the two millions of Yankee soldiers a high compliment, ll’e was eulogizing the negro, of course, and said, in reference to the contest between the North and the South, “Had the negro not been armed, the result would have Men lari different.” Is it so, Beast? Is it true that two in iilions of A dr them soldiers could not conquer a half million 01 rebels without the aid of the negro? We believe that one Northern man. fighting on his own soil, and lor liis own home, is equal to two men of any other race. We believe the same of Southern men; but we also believe what General Grant said lo Lee, on his surrender, “You are not whipped, Gen eral Lee. You are simply overpow ered.'’ That was tho simple truth, frankly spoken by a man who has much magnanimity in his nature. We have a higher opinion of Northern sol diers than tlie Beast. He never com manded many of them. We do not think they were so much indebted to the negro for their success as lie does. The compliment lie pays to the negro and the white soldier, however, is a matter of,taste, about which we w ill quarrel with no Radical. Reast Butler has such a fondness for black men and women with white hearts, that he should apply fora patent right for his discovery. He was accused of opening the grave of Albert Sydney Johnston, not to find what sort of a heart lie had, but if any spoons were buried with the hero's body, lie may have opened ne gro graves with the same object, and found ••white hearts."'

It was caused In thenppe'stranoP'bf ii.lines issuing from a block of small mixed bpek and frame tenements situated on Jefferson street, south side, just beyond the New Theater. The origin of the lire is not certainly known, nor is the particular bui India' been yet ascertain ed in which it first r»,pke out ; but the supposition is, by those who reached the.scene earliest, that it comnu-iecd in a small rear sited att iched to the marl - ine shop pf our old and well known citizen, Mr. A. (,). Shultz. The lire de pirtnient was promptly on the ground with Us machines, which were put in operation as soon as possible, hut from tiie amount of dry wooden material in the block, the flames made rapid and frightful headway, and against any other than the steam engines, would have become master of the situation, and s8oa caused a lamentable destruc tion of property. As it was, the lire could not be subdued sufficiently and kept in hounds save by four or five hours' incessant labor and watchfulness of the lire department. Fourteen tenements, west to east from Xo. 115 to No. 129 were destroy ed. The loss was not large, as the buil dings were old and small, not reaching, perhaps, over seven thousand dollars. —[Memphis Avalanche. 18th. A OrnioLS Bet.—Gen John A.

An exchange says: Responsible and well known citizens of Cairo offer the following wagers to Gen. John A. Logan's tViejids : SlO that John A. Logan cannot name three revo lutionary Generals ;S10 that he cannot give the names of three revolutionarv battle-fields; SlO that lie cannot name the three original colonies; SlO that he cannot name the present States in the Union : SlO that he cannot name a sin glo battle.in which Gen.

Washington; S!0 that he cannot correctly punctuate his own signature and SlO more that no mail who is intimately acquainted with Logan dare accept any two of the above propositions. The Cotton and the Grass Army Worm.—The Baton Kongo Advocate has been shown specimens of each. It says: The cotton loaves whereupon these worms were found, and on which they still may be seen at work in our office, are pretty well riddled—especially the one in which the urnyv worm lias ta ken up his quarters. These worms are about the same sL.e—slender, and somewhat over an inch in length. The army worm has a dark striped back: the grass worm is of a yellowish color, with light stripes and a double row of very small, dark tints along the. whole length of its back.
