A correspondent, from the Bay Shore, of the Richmond Whig, urging the election of Mr. Stuart to the Senate, says:

We have men among us to the manor born, reared upon the soil of Virginia, involved in and devoted to her every interest, both State and national, and have not their equal for learning, for purity and honesty of purpose and every acquirement which should adorn a Virginia Senator, and first in the long line of greatness stands most prominent the name of Hon. A. H. H. Stuart, of Augusta, whose experience and able services in the Cabinet and in legislation, both Federal and State, whose intellectual acquirements, refined and accomplished bearing, his enlarged statesmanship and his whole political national record stamp him as the should be first Senator from reconstructed Virginia. -- President Grant and Congress will be well pleased with him, and remove any and all disabilities under which he may labor by virtue of the Fourteenth Amendment, admit him to his seat, and thus secure honorable and distinguished representation to Virginia in the Senate in the person of one of her most "gifted statesmen."
