STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: TUESDAY EVENING, FEB. 28, 1865, W. J. COWING,,, .Editor, The Constitutional Amendment The Hon, Joseph P, Bradley, of New Jer»ey, has recently published an elaborate opinion, in which he concurs in the conclusion arrived at by Mr. Charles Suransr, Senator from Massachusetts, who, on the 4th insf., offered in that body of which he is a member, a resolution declaring “that the rebellious States are not to be counted in estimating the number of States of which three-fourths are required to ratify and validate the Constitutional amendment. 5 ’ The fifth article of the Constitution declares the amendment, “when ratified by the Legislatures of three-fourths of the several States,” valid as part of that instrument. Mr. Bradley contends, like Mr. Sumner, that they “are those, and only those, States which are connected with the Union as States when the amendment is passed upon.’ 5 Were this principle of reasoning to he adopted by the Senate, it is not doubted but th...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: —•<»>—-- WEDNESDAY EVE’G, MARCH 1, 1865 W. J. COWING Editor, The Way to End the War It is held now and rightfully we think that, there is but oae army of the Confederacy worthy of the name—that of Lee —and that when that is dispersed or destroyed the rebellion will be virtually at an end The Confederacy possesses no power or. vitality beyond the limits embraced within its military lines Disperse those who hold the muskets and the rebellion is in a state of collapse. This the rebel leaders well know, hence their unceasing efforts to blarney their dupes in the field into continued endeavors. Taylor. Beauregard, Bragg and Hardee respectively command comparatively small forces. The debris of once powerful armies, are scattered over portions of the southwest, and when it happens they are held together by military law are no better than mere predatery bands, while thousands who used to swell the rebel armies are individually seeking their s...

STATE JOURNAL. i ALEXANDRIA FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 3, 1865. W. J. COWING, Editor. Getting Back Our Own. When the present, contest was in its,inception, President Lincoln called for troops from the various States for the purpose of recovering possession of the Government forts, arsenals, dockyards, guns, treasure aud other property stolen by the rebels. The latter certainly did their stealing on a big scale, having operated nearly in eleven States at one time. They took possession, with a single exception, of every Government fortress from the James to the Eio Grande, and, indeed, every other species of public property within those limits. The larcenous gang triumphed for a time, but the ministers of justice (those same troops called for by Lincoln) w'ere early on their track, and allowed them little rest. Forts Jackson and Phillip were recovered two years ago; the goods and chattels stolen on the Mississippi; the forts they seized below Mobile harbor ; Fort Marion and other stronghol...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 4, 1865 W. J. COWING, Editor. Gen. Lee on Arming the Slaves. Lee, the general-in-chief of rebeldom, has written a letter to Barksdale, of Mississippi, arguing at some length the question of arming the slaves. He takes the ground that it 13 not only expedient, but necessary to do so, as the enemy (the United States) will do so if the rebels do not. He says the numerical superiority of the Union armies will always secure to us any number of colored recruits we may need, unless they are armed and placed in the Confederate army. He says, and truly, that the South cannot supply men for the exigencies of the war. He thinks the negroes will make good soldiers, and that, after proving themselves such, they should be freed ; the raising of the colored contingents shduld be left to the several States. The letter was written after the fact was known that the proposition had been defeated in the rebel Senate by one majority, and demonstrates co...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 1, 1865, VV. J, OOWISTQ, Editor. Adjournment of the legislature, The Legislature of Virginia adjourned today at 12 o’clock, M., after a very protracted session. It is a session that will live in the history of the State for many years, not only for the good it has done, but for the greatergood which it has neglected or failed to do. It passed many necessary and wholesome laws, and repealed many- barbarous enactments which should never have had an existence among an intelligent people. We will not censure this body for what it did not effect in the way of the passage of laws which we thought the necessity of the times demanded, because we are fully aware of the'life-time prejudices against which they had to contend. Revolutions cannot be accomplished in a day. Time is necessary for the accomplishment of vhe great changes which must be effected in the affairs of this State under the new regime brought upon us by the war. The great slav...
