THEEVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDWFSDAY Aapil 2'i, 1960 Sptril el the ^lsrnlng Press. Tbs ConHitution applies the maxim " Honesty Is tbe best policy," to politics, and particularly to the relations between Northern and Southern Democrats The stiiir paper pnplishes the sddress of the National Democratic Executive Committee, and comments upon it as follows : 'The address if sued bv tbe National Democratic Execu':vr Committee, of which Hon. 1.1 Stevens is cbftrwan.

On th? occasion of the visit of the Prince of Wales to the Cataract, Blondin will cross the rope on stilts four feet high. ID- Some of the telegraphic dispatches, rs well as other reports, sent from the recent Charlottesville and Staunton Conventions, were extremely psrtlzan in their nature, in the interest of Bell and Douglaa respectively, and were of course received with due allowance by the Intelligent reader. The newest gossip about the Prince of Wales in New York is that Moses H. Grlnnell, Ksq . has tendered the reception committee the use of his splendid mansion in Fourteenth street. Mr. R. C. Haight has done the same thing, but Mayor Wood, it Is generally thought, will have the honor of the custody of His Royal Highness at his residence near Manhattanvllle. ID" From the present census returns it is estimated that the population of Norfolk, Virginia, will not exceed 16.UU0 souls, all told. The Argns nays: This was the estimate in 1335, when we lost almost 1,Stilt of our population by the epidemic; so that it appears that the increase of population has only been sufficient to make op our loss by that terrible calamity. It is said that overtures have been made by the Breckiiirldge State Committee, in New York, (n t)? n?.<.rK? U-" *-?? " * ?

YZT' An earut*t appeal Is addressed by the "National Democratic Volunteers." an Independent association in New York city, to the three Opposition committees, urging them, as Union-loving practical men. to unite in one common effort to save the country from evil. They say : " So powerful are the ccmbinations of the Republicans at the North, so unyieldlog aud defiant is the attitude of the extreme disunlonists at the South, that if the Empire State, whose word Is law when she presents an unbroken front, doe* not now give an example of seif-d?nial and compromise, she will again be ojien to the charge of Laving in a moment of passion betrayed those interfltl Of Vhltb frnin ho? r*Aci?lA,. ?,U! ?11 , MV< f>voiuvii} puiuir.anyt geographically, and socially, sue may be s?id to Eola the balance of power."

A considerable portion of the paMenger* of both t*ains?for a Central Railroad's train from Richmond journeyed a few hundred pace* ahead of ns from Uordonsville thia forenoon?l^ft tbe cars, a< I did, at the lower Charlottesville depot, to attend the Democratic State Convention. In all there are perhaps a thousand itrangen now here, most of them sojourning at one or the other of the two comfortable hotels of the village,which, however, are by no means adequate to the proper accommodation of tbeir guests of tbe occasion. These '-rangers embrace, with very inconsiderable exceptions, all the well-known real leaders of the Democratic party from nearly every county of the Old Dominion. True, I miss a few faces familiar on like occasions ; though, in the main, these latter are the well-known " mugs'' df tbe Messieurs Malfmrnnrs nf tK? . -i?? , P? pui>j. v* gcnucuivai aiway? ambitious of candidacies, and as invariably dieappointed in their aapiration* for popular favor. 1 also iniM the physiognomies of a few dozen gentlemen who, having been active Whigs, became flaming Know Nothings when It was thought that Know Nothinglsm was about to role the roost in Virginia, and as intense Democrats shortly after Henry A. Wise's election mad* it plain that the road to political preferment In Virginia was likely to continue to be through connection with her Democratic party. All these gentlemen are assembled at Stsnnton to-day, I hear, together with not a few other leaser lights of like political history and fortune. Messrs.

As my algebra is none the brightest now, 1 have confessed to fifty ir.y inability to bring that problem out to a result satisfactory to myself; to 1 can but amuse myself with listening to the shrewd calculatious of those here, there, and everywhere around me, who being better (or at least more confident) cyphenrs than myself, have already rrduced It to th? politician's not unusual dead certainty (before election) of actual black and white, on pap*-r Vet I must confess that though I can perceive no lack of the fire to win the victory in Virginia, tn the members of thisConvention?and I see nothing that can possibly prevent the Breckinridge and Lane ticket from carrying the Old Dominion?the shrewdest and best informed around me are as loth to undertake the task of fl^urinrr date* into the Presidency and Vice Presidency J<ist now, as I am. But let us leave tbe crowd of politicians for an instant. Charlottesville, though here and there an improvement in it* n?w streets Is in progress, weirs the air of a finished city?finished when tbe style of village building was somewhat more substantia than before the era of the universal use of paint and putty, and unseasoned Inch plank for the most part. Thus, though not growing, it is very substantially built, and is really a thrifty, thriving place of some 4 fmo t ^ ' ' una jjrooaniy hardly a single pauper among them all. The village or town of Charlottesville consists principally of three parallel streets, perhaps a mile long, with other short streets at right angles to those, and arioos handsome private residences, surrounded by spaciousar.d highly ornamented grounds (with trees) on the outskirts. These latter relieve the appearance of the town greatlyfrom the monotony of Its otherwise very old-fashioned and unpretendIi'g air. The farm mansions in the neighboring valley, too, serve to add to the picturesque scenery of the vicinity of Charlottesville, asseen in all directions from any of its outer street*. Nearly every neighboring such building stands on a gently welling hillock, in the midst of a beautiful grove, a id tells at a glance that it Is Inhabited by pertons of dignity, ef individual character, and reflurd taste, as well as means withal to cultivate and gratify that taste rationally. The far-famed University of Virginia lies upon undulating ground about a mile and a half above Charlottesville, in the same valley of the Hlvanua river Jefferson selected Its'site, and a lovelier on? for picturesque effect is not to be found In all the !*We of Virginia. On two side?, very-nearinnnntal" ?' " * , iwui a raiueraorupi Background. Tbe multitude of brick building* connected with the institution, from the magnificent main collepiate edifice surmounted with a mammoth tin covered cupola, now sparkling like a buge diamond in the light of today's burning lun. are nil familiar to the whole country, which, it will be remembered, teems with engravings of them. I shall nci essay to describe them here, thertfote. further than to remind the reader that each one of them was planned and located directly under the consulting eye and taste of Thomas Jeiferaon, In his day the most accomplished architect in the land, without being a practical builder His refined taste is evident In the tcvt *nttmblt of all of them, from the main collegiate edifice down to the humblest porter's lodge or professor's carriage house. All are yellow-washed, and so shaded with foliage as each to add as charmingly to the UlTM.tlMUIxMk... ?? * " IUC 01 iqc wnoie range (of buildings) as a bouse designed for such a purpose aa that for which it is intended, can add. This is the middle of the annual long (summer) vacation; so the University's avenues look deserted to day. i regret much that I saw it for the first time with v*c?nt walks and groves, rather than with a fair portion of the Institution's seven o{ eight hundred students, a hundred prcf?*sors, teachers, rifilala, and servants, and of the families usually living in the premises, present to give ths scene the air of life it Is wont to wear. Between Charlottesville and the University are Ideated the outside boarding hotels, usually patronized by perhaps half the students; the rest rooming within its sacred precincts These hotels are very plain buildings, answering, however, well for the purposes designed. Their appearance is, of course, exceedingly somber to-day, because so nearly d' aerted; as they are to continue until the beginning of the next setslon. W. D. W H.
