Th* Richmond Ebqcieek does us Injustice in attributing our earnest labor* tonvr the future the people of the Atlantic border alaveholdlng ?tat?e and the Dlstriot from the consequences o' the aaaault upon thia city which hna to our knowledge long been preparing, (and at no time "with more eageroeee aud energy than at present,) ?o a deaire on our part to ' save" our "property," *>y "kissing the rod of Lincoln or any other Northern tyrant." We have no property In this District except the Star, and a single lot of grouod worth, ere the troubles commenced that long since rendered Washington city r?*?l estate utterly snWble at any price, not mare than a thousand dollars. What the value of a newspaper here can be do*, we leave the Knquint to judge Ourocurse throughout trie whole of the troubles baa been a stralgbt-forvrard and cons',stvnt one. We contended against secession, as Involving vMier or lat-r the positive destruction of every Interest in the border slaveholding Stat?*8 worth preserving, through the civil war In which, it was cleer to us, It would result How correct our anticipation on that point was. the present condition tsf Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and the entire North, tells most forcibly. We ! norplv h?ll**?l th?t tho <intv nf ml persistently striving to ward i.fl the existing state of things was a (patriotic one. and we see no reason now, wbeo the who Is available force of the uon-slaveholding states Is rapidly rushing dowi <ipon the borders of Maryland, to change the cur rent of our labors?to cease to atiive to prevent her from following the mad example of Virginia. We believe that if her Legislature, calied to me* t oh Friday uext, maintain tbe status of their State tu tbe l:nion. and instead of opposing, ahull determine to facilitate tbe passage of troops through Maryland to save this city from tbo mid invasion preparing throughout tbe South, Virginia may V*t be saved from tbe otherwise almost certain conaequencea of her act In coming forward to AlfU* ? . tk.

The citizens of Monongalia n;id other counties of Western Virginia have Wen holding enthusiastic Union meetings for some time, at which resolution* denouncing secession ard indorsing the course of their Union delegates in the Convention, were adopted. At a meeting held in Monan^?a!:a county, a few d^ys since, th>* following resolutions were adopted uiwiilmori?lv: Revoltt<l, That we the people of Monongalia, without distinction of party, deprecnte&ttd hereby enter our solemn protest against the secession of Virginia in the present exigency as unwiv j?nd inexpedient, and f tt.il to her best intercuts and tue interests of our whole country, believing, .is we do, that amongst its legitimate and immediate results will be tue utter ruin and bankruptcy and deso:atiMi of our hitherto proud and powerful oid Commonwealth. Reiclctd, That the idea of seceding from tbw General Government of the Uuited states, and attaching Virginia (as the outside sentinel) U> the so-called Cotton or Gulf State Confederac y, is repulsive, and opposed to every feeling,sentiment, and instinct of patriotism, and the s?nw of tLls meeting Is unalterably oppo*ed to being dragged into tbe wake of secession by South Caroline, the hot-bed "f political heresies and treason. Hetolved, That \V-.stern Virginia has patiently submitted to and borne up under tbe oppressive policy of Kaatern Virginia for tbe last hair century, as shown in her course in denying to us equal representation and ref'Sing to bear h*r equalsuare of the burden of taxation, (in uuifor ? ly claiming and receiving exemption from equal taxation on her slave property;) that now the measure of Eastern oppression is full, and that tf, at Is olaiintd by her, secession is the only remedy offered by her for all our wrongs, the day Is near at hand when Western Virginia will rise up In the maieatv of strength, and repudiating her oppressors, will dissolve all civil and political connexion with them and remain tlrDily under tbe t;me-bonored stars and stripes.
