They are proclaiming that hundreds of the State's wealthiest slaveholders are making preparations to abandon their Virginia eatateaand remove their at^rots to the Southwest; and that, as a eors# q ience, VirginU'a merchants and me. sh?n!cs should see starvation before their eye?, and her landholders the utter ruin of the market value of their real estate. Now, happens that we have, Juat ow tbe river here, a practical Illustration of tbe effect of the removal of alavts tn large numbers from a portion of Virginia, that tells a very different tale, Indeed, front the predictions of the Richmond Enquirer, fjammir, and Dispatch. We refer to Fairfax county. Wan and boy, we have known Fairfax well nigh half a century. We knew It when the proportion <f slaves to free white laborers In It was as great as now exists in at^y of the lower conntles of tbe St^te, where the yalue of fair cultivable lands continuea to average under ten dollars. We knew, la old times, tnany estates there, of from oue to ten thousand acres each, to be practically abandoned by the removal of their owners' negroes to the Southwest, and then old out In lots of from one to live hundred acres to white laboring men, at from S3, |o, 87 I) SIO yxji swc. wuibii cikUUS uau cuiur w uc v\unu an average of S3u per acre, before the secession game commenced. We know that tiie change in the svstem of the cultivation of the (oil there, through Its practical abandonment by the large slaveowners. has not only increased lis value from tbrea to five hundred fold, but that It hss so diversified the employment of the people of tbe county as to double the value of the proceeds of every labonug man's labor, in It We know that it has multiplied vltco'.s, workshops, manufactories, Ac.. 4c., In Fairfax, and ptrbaps doubled the productive population of the county. And we knniv Ika srv/ i-wl ? w-4 intiliiataUl -- a u v s luxt 111C SUVM1 OI1U HIUUOVUBi tvil dition of the laboring whites there, has improved by the change as though by magic. Log cabins chinked with mud, have disappeared cn the linus of tbe laboring whites, and a class of rural buildings and farm improvements equal to those occupied by the sune class anywhere in tbe I'aited States, has taken their place. The former almost invariable herring (at,in those days, SI 50 per thousand,) and the then lntvirable ashe pone only, no longer form the staples of the laboring white mail's food In Fairfax, as of vote; for, os a etas*, the laboring whites of that crunty are es well off and have around them as many of the ubatantial cooforis of life, as any other white laborers in the world. With theae facta before our eyes, we confess that we see nothing so very alarming In the threata of tne R chmond disunion newspapers, that many ad7ocatea of bringing Virginia under the dominion of Rbett. Spratt A Co.'a pro-Afrlcaa-slave-trade and anti-white-labor usurpation, design abandoning the State for a more congenial clime That is: to tboae deeply Interested, es we certainly are, in the glorious Old Dominion's continued substantial prosperity ar d rapid progress. The politicians who can perceive no other Interests in Virginia except the alleged (but not real) interests of those who now propose to abandon their Virginia estates, if those papers are leaking correct representations, have been the millstone around Virginia's neck for nearly half a csntur>, aud if they will only follow, too, In a very short time comparatively, Virginia will be reinstated in fcer proper relative nosition?that < r I J * the first State in the American Union In popu!*tiou, wealth, tbe arta, manufactures, lmprovtmcDta, mining, Ac.

Y., through J bhtlllngton, the a^eut for this city, we have volumes 15 and 16 of Benton's Abridgement of tbe Debates of Congress, extending frosn 1&43 to 1920. In noticing the previous volumes of thta work we'have spoken of It with tbe bearty commendation iU merits deserve. .Nowhere else can be found all the leading f*eis of our country's political history so comprehensively and systematically grouped Of conceded lir.psrtlallty as well as ability, and embodying the careful labor and thought of h'.s faculties when at their ripest and best, the illustrious compiler was justified In expressing tbe belief "that through preparing it he had rendered a great public service to the Union." In fact, tt has already become a standard historical work, and la not only deemed an indistensible on the shelves of every State Library la the Union, bat!? being ordered largely for the liiuiinn ci omer countries Of course cur iUUhimd, legislator*, and all en^agrd In public life can nowhere else (or in such compart bulk certainly) find the requisite data to post themselves accurately upon all tue grrat natlon&l questions presented In the past history of tbe country. It la in fact * ureal political text book, and so carefully arranged and Indexed that tbe reader finds any dealred reference with least lBMglnabie trouble. N?w Ton Naval Orr.cs ? Tte contest for this position seems to have narrowed down between the Hon Henry Bennett, formerly a memW~> -? n v* wngrcu iiom Ui?t State, and Mr Phillip Dsrshelmer. of Buffalo?the Inevitable Philip, on aoch occasion*. When Pierce wu elected be came bltber on a similar errand, and won the Buffalo poet offlre. When Buchanan Mrae elected be also came bltber on a almllar errand, but won nothing His fanny say!ngs and doings around the W ashl ng ton hotels, 1b the bitterness of his disappointment on that occasion, graced all the newapapers of the day, It will be remembered That he la here again on tbe opening of the Lincoln administration, on b'a present errand fairly entitles him to the soibriquet of Tbe inevitable Philip, on such occasions.
