m$ %~ ALEXANDRIA. saturday evening. january 1. The gazette is now the oldest paper iu the State, and with few exceptions the old? est iu the country, aud its usefulness hes been demonstrated aud appreciated during the eighty seven y e a bs of it? existence. In its columns has always been found a mirror of passing events, and the careful chroni? cling of the history of what is going on in the world has ever been its aim. It is always welcomed in the household, while in the counting room and workshop it has become invaluable. The Gazette has better facilities for ob? taining news than any paper outside of the natioual capital. Situated as it is so close to the great centre of news, it enjoys daily the benefit of the Associated Press dis? patches from every part of the world ; hence its patrons can read from its columns in the evening what has transpired that day in every portion of our own domain as well as from everj- part of the habitable globe.

SATURDAY EVENING, JANUARY 1. London's Socialistic Refuge.?It is seriously proposed to take up the stones and asphalt in Trafalgar Square and lay it oat as a park or garden. Thi3 is suggested because of riotous assemblages that so often take place there. Trafalgar Square is really the centre of London, and the disorders element look upon it as a sort of city of refufce. All property holders in the vicinity are strongly in favor of the change. The argcst Lute-Is i:; Louden are situated in the vicinity. These hotels pay taxes to the amount of $300,000 per annum, and they are getting tired of boarding up their windows rr> save themselves from the hands of rr.oKs Prior to the recent meeting of tbe socialist in Trafalgar Square, hotels near there re ceived (bods of telegrams countermanding orders for rooms.

A X, TSX AISTDRI A. MONDAY EVENING. JANUARY :i. Key. Dr. NEWMAN thinks that in these piping times of peace it is all wrong to for? get the war. In other words.he likes to see the bloody shirt waving in the cool winter's breezes and the hyenas digging up the ? corpses of the war, and to have the division of the country perpetuated. And there are none who are more in accordance with him than the Massachusetts republicans. But this is not at all strange, for during Mr.Buch anan's administration, and before a single Southern S:ate had proposed to withdraw from the Union, a State disunion conven? tion was bold at Worcester, Massachusetts, composed of men who subsequently became the leaders ot the republican party, who declared that the necessity of disunion was written in the whole character and condi? tion cf the two sections of tho country ; that the movement in which they were en? gaged did not seek merely disunion, but the more perfect union of the free States by the "expulsion" of t...

ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 4. There is no doubt that money has be? come a great factor in tho election of men to high office in this country. But it is no le^.s certain that the office obtained by such means is never held by really great men, nor ever reflects honor upon these who hold i:. Great as money is, however, in re? spect of the matter referred to, it is not as great as brains, and when strong men arc preferred they reflect honor upon the offices they hold. This country still remains a country in which all have equal opportu? nities. Iu such a country bruins and luck are worth iufiuitely more than money as factors iu political elevation, as is proved iu innumerable instances. Nearly all the great men of this country who held office have come from the people, and most of them commenced life without the influence of family, education or money. And the same opportunities exist now as formerly. Therefore, whenever men are heard assert? ing that this is not a country of...

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, .1 ANl'AEY ",.

The journey was through apart of Alaska never bsfore explored, und for a sireat part of the time Ensign Howard lived among natives who never befon- bad seen a white man. The story of the hardships En? sign Howard and bis party endured, should be sufficient to dampen the fever some may entertain for exploratiou in Alaskan wiles.

.ALEXANDRIA.. thursday evening. january 6. Many of the acts of the workiugmen of this country prove that thoee men are not Solomons. But, for all that, there is nothing to show that they are such egregious fools a-: some of the demagogues must take them to be, from the manner in which they treat them. Gov. Hill, of New York, for instance, in order to induce them to swell bis boom for (he next Presidency, says they should have holiday all of every Saturday. As work is not too plentiful anyhow, and as it is natural and patent that no employer will pay six days' wages for five days' work, why tho laborers who have work should be deprived of one sixth of their wages, is what no seusible workman can tell. Most every body in this country has to work: the rich to save what they have, those in moderate circumstances to better their condition, and the poor to keep from starving. And as those who labor with their coats on have to work every Saturday, there i-? no good rea? son why those who l...

THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 6. Running Away with a Church.?It would make our neighbors laugh, says the Dominion Churchman, if they knew that the oldest church in America was once stolen, and carried away seven miles; but euch is the fact, and these are the circumstances aa we learn from the New England Magazine: A church was built on Sparsen Hill, Wick ford, Rhode Island, in 1707, but in three quarters of a century the people had moved to a more convenieut settlement, eeven miles lower down. Not liking to walk sev? en miles each Sunday some proposed in vestry that the church should be moved. The few, however, who remained in the original settlement violently opposed such Buch a proceeding. One evening the people of Wickford mustered their forces, collected all the oxen, placed the church on wheels and rolled it down the hill to the place where it uow stands. When the people on the bill woke up and found their church gone, if they were not good church people, they must have U3ed some v...
