Rim:mown, April 17.—General Schofield
visited and addressed the, Convention this
-.morning, end said - the iron clad oath' of'
'office . -In the Constituticin was extremely
objectionable Fro: had administered the
Retonstructiern laws in the State for more
than a year, and stated as a result of his
experience that it would be practically im
possible .to. gang on 'the Government of
Virginia on such a basis. In appointing
registering officers ho had found ono, per
haps two, persons in a county who could
take this oath, and yet there were thirty civil
officers in those countim In his opinion
the oath would be fatal to the Constitution.
In other f respects the Constitution _was
:rather better thim.those of other StateS, but
much depended on the men fiat-elected to
carry it. out, and that the oath restricted
the range necessary for the selection of the
best men. As -a party measure, it would
be fatal. .

General Schofield left a heated debate com
menced in the effort to reconsider the vote

plained that tinder the new Constitution
