Wsllaee. ______■__> O. H, Esq., tbmptebT nr a tsa fot. We have seen two correspondents of leading New York papers give and take the lie In the Reporters Gallery of the House of Representatives, in the most complacent and innocuous manner.— Laßt winter we put the question point blank to one of the most prominent Democrats in Congress, from the North west, "Will your people fight for prin ciple?" "No," was his prompt and blunt reply. This allair between Johnson and Stan ton would be followed by and blood anywhere else but In the United States. But these Northern buggers (we beg their pardon) are a peculiar people. They fuss and fume, bluster and rail, curse and call names, and- there's an end on't. When we were at College, a hot-headed North Carolin ian got into a dispute, one day at the dinner-table, with a Yankee teacher of vocal music. The dispute became a quarrel, and finally the North Carolin ian brought the matter to a focus by calling his opponent a liar. The mu sic teacher turned red in the face, paus ed a moment, then said, in a tone of evident severity, "'Consider yourself, sir, kicked by a Jackass, sir," rose from the table, and left the room, satis fled that he had salved his wounded honor and annihilated his antagonist. Of course, no moral is dcducible from thlsj,aflbctliig narrative. Johnson is Impeached, In the House. Very dreadful Isn't it? And gold goes up two per cent! Prodigions! Stan ton "camps in the War Department." Awful 1 And Johnson will "do nothing arbitrary, being satisfied that he has got the matter into the Courts." Each of the high contending parties desires the other to "Consider himself kicked by a Jackass." And Lorenzo Thomas piddles aud fools about the War De partment like an urchin trying surrep titiously to suck molasses out of a for bidden bung-hole. Ye gods! was there ever such a wormy little farce since the foundation of the world? It Is too Johnson may be ejected. We think it not a 1 unlikely. Indeed.we hope he will be, for we want to see this little "pltnp jlnny,"' this puny butter-bump to come to a headland burst. The sooner,the bet ter. In the United States, these be doubtless, very grave matters. Here, they fatigue sensible people, and make tbem sick at the stomach. When Sherman deserted Johnson, BtKNKTT turned a back summersault off baud. The Uie was told, the jig was up, Jobnson's cake was dough. He cant light, for he has no party. B. Do ban Kii.liaw put the case happily, when he said to us. "Johnson is the.only man I ever heard of, who desired to remain and has succeeded In remaining strictly ueutral in a contest about himself "— And like all neutrals, he has been ~spcwed out." But, the truth is, it is merely a que tion of dollars and cents. If it is foun that impeachment will hurt the bond it will not be pressed. Otherwise, will be pushed through.

The many friends iv and out of the a y of Capt. ViaoiNins Dabney will b adto hear that his school In Middle bn g isflourishing, Such is the charade this school, that it numbers among i patrons not only the best names of th neighborhood, but those also of distin guished gentlemen living almost undo the shadow of the University of Vi ginia and even eminent divines of th far South. A son of Bishop Hh-har Wh.mlr is one of Mr. Dabney's scho ars. Middleburg is one of the uios beautiful and salubrious villages in ou whole State, and its society, to ou f iking, is unequalled. Of Ma. Dab himself we need not speak; his rep ;lon in the army speaks for him. "A HIT, A PALPABLE HIT," a mk. in in of the Petersburg index says :—Brick Pomeroy advertises for a Confederate flag to hang in his sanctum by the side of the Union banner. We doubt the propriety of sending the flag to a man who didn't go to it. We haven't much respect for this after the battle fervor. Our friend "Tump" adds, that If Brick had given half of the $100,000, which he has lately wasted ]on a showy office, to the starving poor of the South, lie would have had as good an office as there is any earthly use for, and proved himsc'f a better man. We think so, too. HABTJ, VEKY HARD. The skull, of a Scotchman Is said to be ahard thing. Adamant is even harder.

Scenery, Society, and Other At tractions. Ifo 2. ; Having, in a previous No. presented I some brie l.vicwson the general features of the Coiipty of Orange, I proceeded in this to suggest the means required to , levelnp and render available it* dor mant wealth. Admitting that the difficulties which, at present embarrass agricultural de velopment arc great and discouraging, I yet they should by nu means be regit rd ied as insurmountable victims ot the unntoncable crime of the 19th century —the subversion of institutions coeval witli American civilization—the anni hilation of millions of recoguized prop erty—the destruction of all labor or ganization aud tlie happiness of a de pendent race—the natural advantages iwe yet enjoy are great, and the attrac tions which surround us are too Invit ing to be neglected. TheVubJect which I should now address itself'to every con siderate and enterprising mind, should be, the mole and mears by which the I rWi endowments of nature may be de- I velosied and made conducive to our nin- I terlal and social happiness. Tbe power and inline nee of every people—their moral and iutellectural attainments, depend on the success with which they cultivate and improve the'.t physical advantages. To maintain the position which we have reached in the arts of civilization, and to insure our future progress, we must sedulously devote ourselves to material interests—no Uto pian views must be indulged, nor pre judices fostered in the struggle to adapt ourselves to existing circumstances.— Time, with Its healing influences, may alleviate, but cannot relieve us of the responsibilities now.devolved upon us. Action, associated and individual, prompt and vigorous energy ot mind, aud industry untiring, must be the In struments of success in all noble enter prises. The subject of Agricultural de velopment is, at present, a matter ol special interest to the owners of tbe soil—and, as the main-spring which vitalizes the whole machinery of human industry, claims the highest 'considera tion ot the patriotic statesman. Capi tal and labor constitute the lubricating • element which, stimtilatcsindustry and and harmonizes conflicting pursuits.— ( These are the great desiderata of the times—as hand maids to agriculture, the foster-mother around which, all I 'other industries cluster and draw their sustenance—assuming as indispu table that, without these active agenees agriculture cannot prosper, and assum i ing also, as not less true, the inetneien , cy ot Iree negro labor, it follows that, our fields must be imperfectly cultiva ted or lie unproductive, until new ele " ineiit sol population are introduced and - new systems adopted suited to the al tered condition ol affairs. The farms , of the County .with few except ion s,are too large for profltable husbandry with ' the present means of their owners. To render them remunerative in propor tion to tlie fertility of the soil, they need , to be divided and sub-divided into tracts of easy dimensions, so as to encourage their own parts to improve them to their highest capacity—por . tions of many large estates, now ly ing unproductive, might be judiciously 1 sold, enabling proprietors to impiove their husbandry—the parts producing I than the whole aud at less cost.— c be one fact more clearly denion d by recent experience than .my except, perhaps, the uncertain! \ t-negro labor, it is the impractl y, with present means,of prolila iiilueting farming operations up scale of former years.

Gf whom, then shall Ibe afraid t Of what shall I be ashamed ? Let me here speak one word for myself alone, and if my Koice could reach to the uttermost oundary of creation, creation should hear the declaration. To day I would not exchange the memory of the part I bore, bumble as that part was, in the noble struggle of Georgia to be free for the crown the Bourbon lost. I would not exchange my poor part at Manas sas, Gettysburg and (hicknmauga, and a dozen other proud but melaucholly Ileitis, for the best hope I hive.

Neither of these terms would they accept, So calling t his assistance some by-ttanders and th brakesman, he ordejed them to eject the parties from the train. Seeing that force was about to be employed, they voluntarily left the train; and with crest-fallen dignity and wounded pride, proceeded to trie head-quarters of the Bureau agent—doubtless witli the in tention of demanding redress (?), but we suppose the Major gave theiu some wholesome advice', as they left next morning for Bichniond, on the accom modation freight. We have been thus minute in the details of this affair, as it produced considerable excitement, and the prospect of a general row at the time seemed imminent. During the last few days, intense in terest has been manifested hero ou ac count of tite exciting news from Wash ington though the general impression prevails that one or other of the pat ties will certainly backdown.

A eorrespondant of the New York Herald had a conversation with the President after the state dliiiier*on Fri day night, and gives in Saturdays Herald what purports to be a report of what transpired. According to him, the; President said his action in super seding Mr. Stanton had been long de termine] upon, and that hie delay ut put his plan In execution had not been produce* by any tear of the bughaar of impeachment.

EXCITEMEHT AT GOXOOaTfTBUsaV Considerable excitement was created at Gordonsvllle oa Friday last, among the colored people there, by th« ejectment of three colored women from the ladies'coach ofthe eastern bound passenger train on the Central read.— The women were from Washington. and upon leaving the Orange train, took their seats iv the ladies coach of the Central train, and upon being re quested by Conductor Anderson to go in the car set apart for them, unquali fiedly refused to do so, asserted that they had a right to ride where other "ladies'' rode. The conductor thought differently, however, and upon their continued refusal to take seats hi the car provided for them, lie summarily ejected them from the train. They applied to Major Morse, of the Frectl meu's Bureau, but this etllcer declined to interfere, and the train having moved oil they were left. lO* The Ballard House in Rich mond, was sold on Monday last, at public auction for $50,000.
