A writer io the Richmond Dispatch ob jects to the transfer of an old claim of Virginia agaitst the national government to an as? sociation, that will construct a beautiful a ve tue; on Virginia territory, Irora the south end of the Aqueduct bridge, at Georgetown, to Jrlt. Vernoo. If the writer were familiar with the proceedings of Congress he would withdraw his objections at once. As long as the claim referred to?which is for mon? ey advanced by the State at the commence? ment of the national government, with w ach to erect the public buildings at Washington?shall be pressed by Virginia, just so long wiil it be unrecognized, as it has been for a hundred years. To transfer it to an association that will appropriate ite award to a national as well as a State pur pose, may, possibly, be the means of ob? taining its payment.
