Why, it is the very ei rorcf the moon: and we need not wonder at ihf singular votes of the late Legislature of ihul State, by which the exisience of a General Government is made aquesiion- ?bfe afl'air, w hen we find its oracle so be- '?ide itself. It is high time that the intelligenre of Virginia should throw off its vassalage io the Enquirer, whose false doctrine and jiolitical lieresics, innocent in their con ception, but fraught with danger in iheir maturity, are plunging the State, d( epor and deeper, into the most inextiitable coniradictions. It is fortunate that, by the natural operation of such inronsis- K’Dcies, the opinions of the Virginia Legislature have lost much of their >veight with her Sister States: for we say it with the most entire conviction of the truth ofwhat we say, that the predomitj- ance of the Virginia dociine among the Slates would be the overthrow of this Union. For, we ask, what son of inter est can tlie People of ll.c transmontane Sta es and Territories feel in the dura tion of this (iovernment, if they are to liave no knowledge of its existence but through the medium of tax-gatherers, traversing their lands, numbering and regiblering their horses and their oxen, their farming utensils, and their house- liold ifl'ecis, and exhausting ingenuity for sources of revenue, and objects of taxation} How long would such op pression be borne by an indignant Peo ple? To this,undoubteilly, wem«.v/comc, if the Enquirer doctiines prevail : for, if the duties oo imports be repealed or ina- tei lally reduced, direct taxes necessarily follow—and, if the Government have no license to expend money on the improve ment of our internal communications, by land or water, or upon any other object whatever in the interior, there is no way in w hich any portion of the pul)lic money can i)e expended for the benefii of those from w hom, in fact, the bulk of it is col lected. I'hc “Signs of the Times” continue to be full of interest. The organs of ihe Opposi'ion continue to bo.isi of the “or ganization” of their Party : ihey siiil hold the language of menace and intimi dation to those who do not choose to lie harnessed in with ■.hem, to drag a half dozen aspiring Politicians initj power. But there are also signs of a re-act ion among the People—tlie voice of reason, heard in whispers at first,gathers strength as it floats upon lhe gale—already it is distinctly heard, and ere long will pro nounce in a voice of tliunder the sentence of condemnation against the league es tablished here durini; the Winter for the purpose of imjjfovini' the condition of the Press, and giving a direction to the public suffiage Uy the force of political organization and parly combination. If one half of the vile trash which every day IS pul in circulation by the opposition pressfs, respecting the President and his Cabinet, be believed by the people of Eu rope, they must think that the American ration is the most corrupt, upon eurih. r Government is constantly held up as composed cl fools, knaves and traitors ; and if there is any honesty left among lhe people, it is confined to those sjioiless libellers, who are so busily employed in ■^jrnpagating their dirty slanders. Ought not the j)eople to take the matter in their own hands, anti pui down these distnr bers of the peace, and detractors of tlie National ciiararier Messrs. Adams S; Clay have, however, this consolation left, "besides the consciousness of their own patriotism and integrity.—Washington was denounced as a traitor Ijv the iiire- ling assassins of that day : 'i he sliufis ol malignity when directed M Mr. JtfT.-r soil’s reputation, ft 11 harinltss to ilie .ground—and even in the St nate of the Vj/iiied States, a metuber of that bi>dy had the audacity to declare that tin- \ir- tuous Madison deserved a lialter.

Jackson, and a Committee, composed of sundry Gentle- men, Joseph liarilett, Samuel White, 8ic. was appointed to draft sundry Resolu tions, which were forthwith reported, and unanimously adopted. I’he Resolu tions are charged with unusual hitierness against all coalilions—denounce without mercy, Adams, Clay, and Tyler ; and as usual, shower extravagant praises upon Cien. Jackson, and John Randolph of Roanoke. Now it turns out upon unquestionable authority, this formidable gathering of the Gentlemen Citizens of Prince Ed ward, v.'as entirely composed of fiu:k ni> CU01.S and ml'Latiots, 8c that Enquirer, one of the most distinguished ‘organs’ of the ‘ corn!)inati(ii),’ has been most ter ribly hoaxed ! ‘We sinci-rely sympathise with the Editors for the disastrous plight into which they are till own by these sa ble patriots of “ Israel Hill,” and we re commend to them in future, to be more cautious how they admit into their col-' umns, marvellous and exaggerated ac counts of “numerous I’ublic Meetings ” got up for the purpose of producing ef fect at a distance ; and in nine cases out of ten, are composed of a few lounp;crs and grog drinkers, who are loo lazy and worthless lo atiend to '.heir own ailairs. liidnnond W/iig. It will ho recollected that at the last session of ('ongresj, a bill was rejiorted !)y the Committee of Ways and Means of the House of Jie|)resentalives to author ize an exchange of sixteen millions of stock, bi-aring au interest of six per cent, for an eejjal amount bearing a reduced interest of five [)er cent. I heoi^jecl of this excliange was two fold. In thf first jxluce, it was to redeem a certaiti portion of public debt now becoming due, by ex changing that amount of stock, for a amount redeemable at a more re mote period, and thus protracting tlu* liquidalion of so much of ttiedebt.

Thus the nation has sustaint'd, during the present year,a pos it ivt- loss of l()0,000 dollars, in conse- (juetice of this patriotic resolution on the pan of the Senate.

It was found, up on inquiry, that the prisoners were not all out ; tlu-re being still one in the up- j)er or debtors' room of the prison, and no way of liberating him with safety excepl by breaking through from the outside. Ladder? were immediately raised to the double barred window, and exertions commenced, with axes and crowbars, to force the bars from their places ; but ef- foris to this effect were fruitless. The flames were soon communicated to the roof of the prison, and exertions were ceased at the window to extinguish the flames. The roof was mounted by a few resolute hands, who in a short time had the timbers all thrown olT.

The time has passed by when the incre dulous could sneer at the suggestion of overcoming by scientific aid those bar riers which seemed prescribed by nature to human exertion and motion. Thi successful application of steam naviga tion is alone sufficient to give dignity uiuj consetjuence to those suggesiions of scientific men which are the result ol’ long study and reflection, and withoatex- pressing a conviction that t!ie schema projjost d is j)rat.licable, we are inclined to treai il wiih respect, since it is thcc- reticatly possible, '.jc the practical obsta- . les wiial they may. Mr. Genet, as aj)pears from a paper now befoie us, proposes in connexiou with Mr. Eugene Roberson, will known for his ascensi>ns from this city, ac.-J elsewhere, to ascertain by actual experi ment the praciicability of navigating the air by the means proposed, and to ac* complish thi.s a subscription is to be o- pened to defray the expenses. Accom panying the subscription paper is the report of a select commiltee (consisting; of Messrs. S. L. Mitchill,\V. J. Maolie- ven, and J. Morton) of the New-York Literary and Philosophical Society, to whom the memoir of Mr. Genet had referred. In concluding their report, iliese genllemen remark, thal “Th^re is •lothing alarming in the opinion that aerostation, notwithstandmj> all that ha^ been done, is still in its infancy; of Cftursf it may he expected that valuable discove ries remain to be made.
