SECRETARY OF THE COMMONWEALTH JAMES MCDONALD. ESQ. • In the House, the press of Virginia is I-orthily represented by Mr. Keiley, irinerly cdiior of the Petersburg In ex, and by Maj. Kelh'y, editor of the 'reuerloksbtiyg Herald. Iv tlic Scu te, the press is represented by Edgar nnwdcn,.lt\, ot tlic Alexandria Ben-J iiR-1, Rut, so far as we know, not one I'life pornianeiit offices ol tho State ias as yet been assigned to a member f that. Fourth Estate, which in Eng. and, In France and in tlic North, lot uany years, lias received, as it were by reclamation, a just proportion oi icuiors and eiiioliinients which every •iglitly-oonslituted State delights to jostuw impartially upon deserving eiti sens of all classes. Heretofore, Yirgiu a has not followed the example ol other stales, but lias been chary of her favor lo the* profession which Is surely not less useful or less lionortible than law. than medicine, agriculture or any oth er that can bo named— we mean the profession of joiii-nalLm. Recognising this dereliction, the Nor folk Virginian, in a short but admiia lilo article, has brought forward the name of Mr. Jauics McDonald, editor of the Richmond Whig, SS Secretary of! ihe Commonwealth. The Virginian I lias been promptly aud ably seconded by the Enquirer and Examiner, the Lynchburg Republican and other pa pers, iv various parts of the State. All of these papers pay high and deserved tributes to the character and intelli- j gence of Mr.McDonald. Wchavc only toadd that, though young in years, Mr. Mcl)., is In point of service one oi tho oldest editors in the State. De testing sensationalism and the meretri cious arts by which it Is attained, ho has during two decades, applied himself with unwearied patience and fidelity to the discussion of questions which have a practical bearing upon the poli ty sf the State, and by his good sense, CorlSCt Judgment and breadth of views lias won the confidence and fttteem of all who know him, including very many of those who, at times, were disposed !to lind fault with him in consequence of bis advanced opinions. Cherishing the profoundest admiration for Virginia as she was in her glorious past,- and al most worshipping- her ancient order, he has nevertheless looked forward with hope to what may be accomplished in tlie future, and encouraged his country men to do the same. Veneration and aspiration In Mm are llucly blended, and while lie will lot go nothing that is good, he will not pause, when work is t . be done, in vain repining over dust a-ul :n lies Which idle tears can never j.-notify. When a man of such traits adds to them a natural conrtesy and dignity I.tting the high office to which ho lias n nominated, his election should be oud the reach of psrsdventure,*— tl such, we have many reasons lor laying, will bo tlio fact. Tho press riigima, with one accord, will urgr. claims as their representative, a'hd people at large, cognisant ot bis iit s, will demand ol'tlio electoral body t the office bo worthily bestowed in the man of worth—the man oftbe ie, and the man for the place.
