the decision il the Virginia contest pusi
tivcly certain. Hut in the (ircsciit Iraim
of the Southern mind that was all thai
was needed to lie known. We could w ail
patiently lor the count in ( Ihio to deter
mine the issue between l'oraker ant
Campbell, though that was a trial ol
strength in the issue of which we hai
earnest, though somewhat remote, inter
est. Hut the result in Virginia was vita
to us, for it brought to the very doors o
every Southern Stale a tpiestiou to In
decided by wager of battle upon thai
chosen field. If Mahone had sueceedet
there, if, making the race issue the issm
of the contest, he lintl succeeded, then ai
impetus would have been given to a lore
which might not h.-ve exhausted itseli
until all the Southern States had beet
laid under the same subjugation, l-'oi
the national administration taking si
open and active a part in the Virgini
campaign did so with the evident, in tael
avowed, purpose of breaking the rank
of Southern solidity, and doing so, ear
rying its victory, xvith like alliance, ititi
all the Southern States.
Mahone, in the consummation of hi
ambition, was regardless ol cverythiuj
that stood in his way, peace, race, am
the tremendous interests associated w ill
the dominance of the superior race. II
was readv recklessly to sacrifice every
thing that impelled the accomplishment
of his objects. He has done all that wa
expected of a man able, adroit, uuscni
ulous, bold, treacherous and x icked
Hut all his qualities and powers for mis
chief would have been ineffective if hi
had relied upon the resources he coul
command at home. They were abun
dant ami they were freely and recklessly
used, but alone not enough to meet tin
elements antagonizing him. It is to lilt
dishonor of the national administratis
that seeing his peril, it flew to its hcl
with monev and speakers anil influence
and promises, and ranged itsell, the gov

What a relief came to the public mint

fought on the soil of Virginia, this time
with ballots, not with bullets, this time
with the weapons of the law and tin
constitution, not with the cannon ; and
also this time by Virginians alone, by
their own brave hearts, their burning
patriotism, their fidelity to the cause ol
civilization, aided and strengthened by
moral influences which acted with en
eouraging force from the outside.
The whole South thanks Virginia for
the grandeur of her attitude, for the an
imation of her resistance for the vigor ol
her blows. The victory won by her gives
safety to us all. The whole country may
Join in these thanks; for the peace se
cured to the South is the gain also of the
whole people. The imminence of the dan
ger aroused a determination that math,
itself invincible. And in this battle was
also illustrated the sublimity of free in
stitutions in its most impressive form.
Peace and safety were made assured,
not by force of arms by blood and car
nage, but by the harmless ballot, the
mightiest weapon ever placed in tin
hand of the liberty loving intelligent
A calm falls upon the land to-day, a
gentle grateful one; for anxiety and ap
prehension are removed. We breathe
freely, for while Mahone lies buried
deeply in the ruia that has overwhelmed
him, the hand of administration iuterler
ence has been stricken down. A rebuke
has been given which must be heeded.
One very pleasant result of the Austra
lian system of voting, put into practice
on Tuesday lor the first time in Massa
chusetts, was the remarkable quiet ol
the election. Voters were freed from the
importunities of solicitors for their votes,
went to the designated places, anil to re
ceive their tickets, went to another,
where alone, and uniustructed they
marked on the slip the names of those
for whom they wished to vote, dcpositetl
their bidlots nnd quietly went their way.
This system presupposes intelligent
knowledge on the part of the voter of
what he purposes to do; he must be able
to read the name of the candidates of his
choice, with intelligence enough to know
the principles involved in a political con
flict. In a word, an educational qualifi
cation is superadded to others, a small
one it is true, only ability to read and
write, but enough to exclude absolute
ignorance, and also enough to secure the
persona) independence of the voter. As
we said once before, this system it not
unlike that in practice in South Carolina,
and like that that has been proposed by
the North Carolina legislature. Yet the
svstetn of the first State is denounced by
the Republicans of the north as aimed at
the negro vote so as to deny them the
ight ol their suffrage. It would if it so
vork, be properly denied to a body ol
voters who arc in the habit of voting as
they are told to do, and without the re
motest purpose of capacity to act oil
their own judgments.

Sir: Kcplying to your inquiry of the
M inst.. 1 have to say that in my opin
ion the tiovernor is not invested with
any peculiar or extraordinary powers in
respect lo I lie ciilorccinciil of the laws ol
.his Stale enacted lor llie protection ol
iy sters and other fish. The legislation
in thai subject may be found in The
Code, vol. 1. Chap, -fo, numbers ;i;t7o,
:!37li, :i;i7'.l. :i:tSU, ;(4L!t; chapters llll,
Laws ISS7, and chapters :i"i. .'ln'J and
H:i, i.aws lNSli.
A perusal of these enactments will dis
close the tact that, the legislature has
made the amplest provisions lor the
protection ot the citizens of this Slate
who arc or may herealtcr be engaged in
lliis industry; but llicir enforcement, like
that of oilier laws, is conduct! to the
courts and local authorities, the exec
utive having no power to interfere ex
cept w lieu he may be requested, in a
Constitutional manner. l" call out the
military power of the State lo assist in
the execution of laws when tiie civil
authorities tire powerless.
I direct your attention especially to
chapter IIHJ, Laws ISSt), which seems to
have been passed to meet the dilhculiies
in the way of enforcing the laws against
non-residents and others, who carry on
their operations upon water and in ves
sels. It seems to me that if the local
authorities energetically utilize the
powers thus conferred, there willspeedily
lie an end of the complaints that our
laws are not observed.
