Mr. Hill ahked for the immediate con-
sideration of the resolution, but Mr. Mc-
Milliambjecting, it was laid over under
therulc8. " !.'
.This resokition ls evidentlvi aimed at
the Administration wfciellts ttiow using
"thTFederal patronaceto 'aid Mabone in
e&Tvinir the Stete of Vircinia. Iuiustbe
evident to every nrt prejudiced man that
the interference by the General Govern
nieiu in State elections, whether by the
bribery of patronage or the more violent
means of the bayonet, -is altogether
wroncr. The Kenublican nartv has used
bbtli these means of accomplishing its
objects, and in our opinion the Stalwart
wing of that party, now iu power, would
urc either means to accomplish its ends, if
its leaders. belived they could count on a

tain them in such a course. The Federal
Union was not created by the States, or
by the people of the States, for - the pur
pose of becoming a dabbler in State poli
tics, and it is a degradation to it and the
people who created it, when it descend
iioiu the lofty plaoe upon which it was
intended to operate for the good of the
whole Union, aud makes itself a party to
the local contests of States. What con
cern has the government of the Uni
ted States with the question whether
Virginia pays her State debt in ivhole or
in part f Why should the Federal Ad
iniuistiation interfere with the question
of sufirage iu Virginia, any more than in'
Massachusetts! Virgiuia demands the
prepayment a poll tax before the voter
cau be allowed to cast a ballot. She re
quires some evidence that he possesses
a pecuniary interest in the government
which lie undertakes to control, before
allowing hiiu to vote. There is nothing
unreasonable iu this, but it has become
one of the issues in the Virgiauia cam
paign, aud the United States (jiovern-uu-nt
is throwing its influence iu favor of
abolishing this prc-requisite. Why has
not the U. S. Government goue into the
Massachusetts elections demanding there
the abolition of all electoral qualifications
except the mere fact that the voter is a
mail f For the simple reason that Massa
cliusett is already Kepulilican, and there
is uothit g tobe gained there by stirring
the nuestiou of manhood suffrage, whilst
in Virginia it is honed that the Demo
cratic party will be divided on this issue
and defeated. Fayettcville Examiner.

recover the salvage to which he was just-
ly entitled. At the time of the terrible
shipwreck of the ill-fated Atlantic he
delivered a lecture in Cooper Institute,
asserting boldly according to his knowl
edge of navigation, that the disaster was
attributable to faulty seamanship. From
early boyhood he displayed a noteworthy
inventive faculty, and rigged up all sorts
of ingenious toy water-wheels and the
like. This surprising supply of clever
ideas seemed to grow with his years, and
tile ingenious conceptions with which his
active; mature brain teemed, and many
of which bore fruit in useful engineering
inventions, seemed endless. He designed

he was head of the Towle Manufacturing
