he following proposition of a leading paper in Richmond in the interest of the conspirators:--It being necessary to form a ticket of electors, and the time being too short to call a Convention of the people, it was suggested that the Richmond editors should prepare a ticket, thus relieving the people of the trouble of making selections. The ticket thus formed has been presented. Among the names we find those of Wm. L. Goggin, of Bedford, and R. T. Daniel, of Richmond; E. H. Fitzhugh, of Ohio County; John B. Edmunds, of Halifax, and C. W. Newton, of Norfolk City.

Wheeling, A city, port of entry, and county seat of Ohio county, W. Va.; on the Ohio River, 63 miles west of Pittsburg, Pa. It was settled by Col. Ebenezer Zane in 1769; provided with a stockade work named Fort Henry to protect it against Indian hostilities in 1774; was the scene of Indian attacks in 1777 and 1781; and was besieged by the British, Sept. 11, 1782, when Colonel Zane successfully defended the fort without loss to his small garrison. Colonel Zane laid out a town here in 1793, which was incorporated in 1806 and 1836, and became the capital of the new government of Virginia in 1861, the place of meeting of the convention from which grew the State of West Virginia, and was the capital of the State in 1863-70 and 1875-85. Population in 1900. 38,878. See Zane, Ebenezer.

nzo Loring, of Wheeling, David Goff, of Beverley, and F. M. Boykin, of Weston, had been commissioned as field-officers by the Governor of Virginia and assigned to duty in the northwestern part of this State, with written instructions from General R, E. Lee prior to my assignment thereto. I would call attention to the instructions given these gentlemen, especially those to Major Boykin, in regard to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Major Loring had served in the Mexican war, been sheriff of Ohio county, and was a gentleman of influence in the city of Wheeling. Major Goff was a leading citizen of Beverley and the county of Randolph. Major Boykin was a native of eastern Virginia, a graduate of the military institute, and at that time a citizen of Weston. These officers were all paralyzed in their action, and completely silenced by the predominance of the Union sentiment in that part of the State of which they were residents. I neither saw nor had a line from either of them after my arri

eld at Wheeling, on the 13th of May. There was no pretense even of a regular election of delegates to this Convention. They were appointed in some cases by public meetings, without reference to the number of qualified voters composing them, in others by papers to which were appended a few signatures requesting certain persons to act as representatives, in yet others without even this faint show of respect for the principle of popular choice. A number of the residents of Wheeling and of Ohio county, in no way more entitled to seats than any similar number of private citizens from any other locality, together with the delegates thus irregularly appointed, composed the motley gathering. Out of one hundred and forty counties and three cities the Committee on Credentials could report representatives from no city and only twenty-six counties. The greater or smaller degree of irregularity in these proceedings is, however, of the less consequence, as it is abundantly evident that there w
