THE VIRGINIA COMPROMISE.
We have the full text of the opinion
.given by the Attorney General upon the
proposed requirement of the test oath
from the members•elect of the Virginia
Legislature. A middle ground is taken
in this construction of the law. The
members will meet as chosen, organize
and may then act upon the X Nrth Article.
So much they may do, without taking the
test oath, their action so far being alto
gether provisional, and subject to the
Congressional approval. This will be se
cared or denied when the Representatives
now elected shall present themselves to
claim their seats at Washington. With
their credentials, they will offer the new
Constitution and the Legislative certifi•
cate of the adoption of the Article. These
credentials and papers will be properly
referred to the Committees of the House.
Reported back favorably, ajoint resolution
will embody the approval of both branches
of Congress. Thereupon, the Representa
tives would be admitted to their seats, the
State officers installed in Richmoni, and
United States Senators elected. Until
this Federal approval has been given, the
functions of the new Legislature are con
fined to the ratification of the Article as
directed in the Act to reconstruct the
State. If, however, the members shall
choose to take the iron-clad oath also,
they can proceed with other legislation,
in advance of but entirely subject to the
chance of that approval. If they proceed
now to instal the State officers, these
officers, not taking the iron clad test oath,
can, under this opinion, have no legal
authority until Congress shall have acted.
The Virginia Conservatives are report
ed as jubilant over this decision. But
the honors are divided. Ratifying the
Article, they can do nothing more until
Congress has spoken. They can organ
ize their provisional Legislature without
the iron•clad test, and vdte for the Arti
cle, and that is all. Taking that oath,
they could proceed with other legislation,
but this they will decline to do.
Undoubtedly, the approval of Congress
will be given. Then, that oath will no
longer be a barrier in their way. Bet,
until then. its obligations are to be strictly
maintained, under legal provisions which
are not to be nullified at the Conservative
demand, backed up, as this has been, by
a few journals like the New York Tri
bune. Herein, Gen. Canby is sustained
by the law officer of the Government.
On the other hand, the Conservatives
have only the delay to complain of ; oth
erwise the situation favors them to the
full' extent as decided by the recent
popular vote. In due time, they will
elect their own Senators, and take the
entire control of the State policy. Then,
we shall see how much the Republican
professions of Gov. Walker are worth.
He has the veto power, and cannot be
overslanghed or ignored by the Conserva
tive Legislature. It is possible that they
may purchase his retirement from the
Executive chair with a Senatorial seat,
but the expediency of this course will re
quire an early decision, since the filling
of those vacancies will be the first busi
ness before them. And they now have
all the responsibilities.
HOW TO BURY THE DEAD.
The Louisville Journal says- that the
Democracy "are in danger of continued
defeat, by quarreling and making unwise
issues," but they can win "by laying
hold of practicable issues instead of cling
ing to dead ones." It hopes that the last
blunder has been made in this respect,
and exclaims, " 'Lekthe dead bury their
dead.' Ho, for the living, the moving
and the real I" This is all very well, but
the Journal falls into ;the common mis
take of many Democratic journals just
now. It speaks of clinging to . dead is
sues. The expression is singularly
faulty. The Democracy do not so
much cling to dead issues, as the . dead is-
sues cling to them. That's the real rub !
The party tray have the best disposition
in the world to shake them
off, and no wonder I But stick
they will, so long as a solitary represen
tative,of the obnoxious past shall live in
the Democratic lead. The dead issues
must live until our taxes abate, our debt
is paid, our slat) soldiers forgotten, their
orphans educated and prepared for the
duties' of life, and American liberty shall
be equally the birthright of every citizen.
These are the dead issues which shall live
to plague their Democratic inventors or
their Democratic foes, until their hearty
repentance be proved by their works.
The dead issues can only be buried by
the Republican friends of the Union, and
it is for the opposition to throw down
their arms and come to help us in the

THE COMING CRISIS NOR FRANCE.
The recent concessions of the Emperor
Napoleon to the liberal sentiment in
Prance do not wholly satisfy its leaders.-
The remarkable speech of the Prince
Napoleon, made In the Senate a few days
since, attracts universal attention for its
advanced democratic ideas.. Notwith
standing the prompt protests of the Min
istry, the opinion gains strength that this
speech was prompted, or that its declara
tions were concurred in by the Emperor
himself, whose failing health, conspiring
with his fears as with his dynastic hopes,
is doing more for popular liberty and an
essentially constitutional government than
France has ever realized before.
A - deluge may not come after his Em
pire, but Napoleon, dyinz, must leave a
regency to maintain his son upon the
throne, or a revolution in the interests of
a further democratic advance. The alter
native is inevitable, and, as such, it is
the judgment of Europe that he has ac
cepted it, and thus proposes to disarm
any national repugnance to the continu
ance of his dynasty. There is reason for
his fears. France is still substantially a
despotism, alleviated for the first time by
the concessions of the present Senatua
Conaultuna; which, tar as they may go,
do not go far enough to place
prance among the really constitutional
governments of Europe. She stands
with Russia,—two mighty barriers to
the univers6l recognition of popular
rights on the Continent of Europe.
Every other power but these, between
the four seas by _which the continent is
bounded, rests to-day upon the broad
foundation of the rights of the popula
tions to a share in the government them
selves. Prussia, Austria, Italy, the
States of the North, have become thor
oughly Constitutional, and last comes
•Spain, where despotism was last year
overthrown forever, and popular liberty
has won the clearest of its tri
umphs. Alone in the West •of Europe,
Napoleon has hitherto maintained per
sonal government, an absolutely arbitra
ry. authority in fact, over forty millions
of French, people. How long shall this
polity be preserved, with liberal ideas,
liberally administered, pressing in on
every border? This is Napoleon's prob
lem, and his solution unfolds itself.
Events are not distant which will
thoroughly test the wise sufficiency of
his precautions to avert the crash of an

LETTER FROM KANSAS.
Ceorrezpoodence of the Pittsburgh Gazette.]
Na* PERRY, Kansas, Aag. 28,1860.
In some visits to Leavenworth, made
within a few days, I was surprised at the
extent and business activity of the young
and vigorous city. ,Its population, now
exceeds 30,000, and its business aggre
gates many millions. The surrounding
country is rich in soil, exceedingly beau
tiful in aspect, and well improved.
Kansas City, by being the first to get
a railroad bridge across the Missouri,
seemed for a while to be in a fair way to
carry off from Leavenworth the commer
cial supremacy of this State; but the peo
ple of Leavenworth have aroused them
selves from their temporary lethargy, and
are now vigorously at work at a bridge
of their own, which will, in less than
a - year, put them is connection
with• all the railways east of that
river and of the Mississippi, while at
the same time they are building lines of
railway north,-west and south, so that
soon that city will have direct access by
rail to almost every part of. Kansas. The
Leavenworth, Lawrence and Galveston
road is now completed to Ottawa, thirty
miles south of Lawrence, and will not
be likely to stop till it reaches the Gulf at
Galveston. They have had for several
years a direct condection with St. Louts
through the Missouri Pacific Railroad,
and in a few days they are to celebrate
the opening of their new road to Atchi
son. Another road is under way from
Leavenworth to Topeka, which will run
through one of the most beautiful and
productive regions in the State, passing
along in a south-west direction, about five
miles north-west of .where I am now
Lawrence, too, is putting forth new
and vigorous efforts to maintain her po
sition in this cluster of rival cities, and I
believe she will be successful. From a
town called Pleasant Hill, on the Missou
ri Pacific Road, in Missouri, about thirty
seven miles South-east of Kansas . City, a
railroad is being rapidly constructed di
rect to Lawrence, which will leave Kan ?
sas City nearly twenty miles to the North.
When that is done—which will be early
in 1870, if not during the present year—
freight will be transported from St. Louis
to Lawrence at the same rates as to Kan
sas City; and as that road runs through a
magnificent and well settled country, and
as Lawrence is the moat eligible point
from which to project lines of road to the
South and South-west, the future of that
city looks exceedingly anspiciouii.
Last week my wife and I visited Kan
sas City. She used to think that in my
descriptiona of Kansas I
• suffered my en-
Wail= to run away with my. judgment;
bat when we made that trip together she
frankly acknowledged that all I said was
sober :rarity, and quite true enonsh. I
found that brisk little city easily niadb
beautiful by its pretty and easily wrought
stone—considerably , improved since I was
there a year ago. It is destined to be a
business centre '-of considerable impor
tance. The new railroad from that point
on the Kansas Pacific road to and down
the Neosho Valley in a south-east direc
tion is being constructed at the rate of a
mile a day. Junction City is one hun
dred and thirty-eight miles west of Kan
sas city, and three miles west of Fort
Riley. , That such work should be going
on away out there where the savages
have just ceased disputing possession with
the pioneer settlers, attests the wonderful
rapidity with which this country is ad
vancing in wealth and importance.
Never have I seen such corn as is
growing and ripening here now. The
rains were heavy and long-continued;
but this rolling surface-and sandy soil
sheds and absorbs water so rapidly that
the heavy rains, so far from damaging
the crops, gave them unusual growth. I
have walked through some fields so cov
ered with thick, broad-bladed, dark•col
ored stalks, twelve to 'fifteen feet high,
that it was gloomy at midday, while the
sun shone with a brilliancy only known
away out here. There is a farmer near
Leavenworth who offered to bet that he
will gather three thousand bushels of
shelled corn off a field of twenty acres,
which would be an average of rjit) bushels
to the acre. He Is probably over san-'
guine, but 60, 70, 80 bushels will be
The wheat crop was very good, al
though some trouble was experienced in
harvest from the frequent heavy showers.
I have been too busy to gather facts; but
while at Junction City I saw Mr. A. W.
Cohen, whose farm adjoins the city, who
had just finished threshing the product
of twenty-three acres of fall wheat, which
averaged forty-seven bushels to the acre.
Fruit, where there are beating trees,
is abundant and excellent. Apples are
much "fairer" here than in the eastern
States. This I attribute to the greater
purity of the atmosphere, together with
the almost constant lively breezes.
Peaches are not so abundant as they
were last year, but the quality is very
fine. Grapes are plenty and good. The
culture of this fruit will soon be one of
the most important in this country, and
the manufacture of wine a large and re
I Inhe been more en the upland prairies
of Kansas this summer than ever before,
and I confess they:far exceed in fertility
and productiveness my former impres
sions. They are not so rich as the bottom
lands, but they are better adapted to
wheat; and some of the finest fields of
corn I have seen were on high prairie
ground. Fruit succeeds better, water is
better, and what is better than sll, health
is better, for the air is purer. Transpor
tation acilities being equal, I would
rather have upland than bottom land,
acre for acre.
For some years past this State was
plagued to some degree with grasshop
pers. Last year they were pretty numer
ous, and many famiers deterred sowing
their wheat until they would pass away,
lest they might devour the young plants.
Others disregarded them and sowed early,
and in so doing they acted wisely, for the
grasshoppers did the grain little or no in
jury, and the product was greatly better
than that which was sowed late. So far
this year there are none. Seed time here
extends from the first of September to
the first of December; but the earlier the
The rich bottom lands along the Mamas

good. lst fact there must and will be
greater diversity of products and indus
tries here than there are yet But the
country is still in its infancy, and people
generally push into those things which
are more immediately available, and which
require the least capital. Hence corn and
potatoes are grown to excess. In the
Southern part of the State stock raising
is the moat preferable; but it is a lazy
badness, and as population crowds in
will cease to be as profitable as it is at
present, and then, and not till then, will

THE great railway bridge over the
Rhine, near the village of Hamm, a little
town above Dusseldorf, is progressing
rapidly, and will probably be completed
before the end of November. The struc
tureis to consist of four arches, the up p er
part of which will be made of iron. The
iron work of each will weigh 14,000 cwts.
The bridge is united to the main line on
the left by a viaduct consisting of fifteen
stone arches, but this does not immediate
ly join the bridge, tieing separated from
it by a revolving draw-bridge, so that the
line can be rendered impassable at any

papers will contend that in thiii as in
everything else Asa Packer has done, he
