STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL IG, 1864. W. J. COWING, ...Principal Editor, B. W. GILIiIS Associate EditorThe National Convention. The controversy over the time and place for holding the National 1 Inion Convention still continues unabated We cannot for the life of us see any good reason why this subject should continue to be discussed with such prominence. Our experience in matters of this kind date back a great many years, and we must confers we have never seen any good result from late Conventions, either township, county. State or National. When fhe friends of any gentleman desire to forestall the action of a Convention it is good policy to keep the time of the assembling of the Conven- tion off until the eve of the elee ion.— Time is required to consummate bargains, and hence late Conventions are always politic and wise in such cases. — We presume the members of the National Union Committee who called this Convention allowed this fact to have due weight with...

To the State Journal : Spare ns, Mr. Editor, from any more local inflictions upon the scarcity of houses. You may write till “doomsday,” but paragraphs will not build houses. It takes greenbacks to buy bricks, lumber, and to pay carpenters and bricklayers, painters, plasterers, and laborers. After the recent sales of confiscated property and Insurrectionary tax sales, it was hoped rents would be more moderate and houses plentier, but it does not turn out so. Some of the new purchasers, before they have paid for the property or got their titles, have been around notifying their tenants that they want more rent. I saw a ...

STATE JOURNAL. Jm "' <. MONDAY EVENING, APRIL 16, 1864. \V. J. COWING, Principal Editor. B. W. GXLUB Associate Editor* The New Regime. This is the title of a paper published at Norfolk, and is the avowed organ, we learn, of Gen. Butler. It claims to be a “Government Daily” —indeed it is so characterised by a Communication in a Connecticut paper from the pen ot one of those interested in its publication. — It is the first paper ever published by the Government, and if it undertakes to run many such machines it will have to authorize Mr. Chase to negotiate a loan of huge proportions. Captain Clark, of Gen. Butler’s staff, is editor of this paper, and Col. E. M. Brown Superintendent. Some twenty-five soldiers (printers) are detailed from the various regiments in that department to do the work of the office. We should think this was cutting things pretty steep. — Here is one Captain, one Colonel and twenty-five men, at an expense to the Government of not less than fifty dolla...

Pirk Last Night.— A fire broke out last uight about 2 o' clock in a house on Pevton street, owned by Mrs. Mankin. Although the Steam fire engines and the Sun engine were promptly on the ground and did good service, yet Mrs. Man kins’ property, consisting of two brick houses, two bake houses and a long shed, were entirely consumed. There was no insurance on the property, and the loss is about one thousand dollars. A Government stable, which stood near the property consumed, was in great danger, and it was by the utmost ex ertions of the fire companies that it was saved Tbe Friendship engine was not, present at the fire,...

STATE JOURNAL. : ALEXANDRIA TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 19, 1864. W. J. COWISG, Principal Editor. B. W. GrILHS Assoelate EditorThe Coming Campaign. We note, as an excellent sign, the patience with which the country has waited through the lost four months for important military movements. It shows, beyond question, that the people are getting to understand more fully, and to appreciate more correctly, the enormous work which is to be done before an army of 800,000 men cau be gathered, officered, supplied, arranged and prepared for a combined effort. In the earlier stages ot the war it was a matter of daily experience to hear it asked why Gen. So-and-se didn’t take such a position, and defeat the enemy at such a point, as if it was a matter in which to will was to do—but now there appears to be a general realization of the fact that we have an able and powerful enemy to contend with, who will tax our strength and ability to the utmost. Circumstances justify the belief that the next campaig...

President Lincoln was present at the opening of the great Sanitary Fair at Baltimore, and was received by tire great concourse of people there assembled in the most enthusiastic manner. After the inaugural address of Gov. Bradford he was loudly called for, and in response he proceeded to make a brief address. He referred to the great change that had taken place in Baltimore in the last three years. Truly, he said, the world moves. At the commencement of the war the soldiers of the Union could not pass through Baltimore unmolested, and now we have this large assemblage of people brought together to do them honor and to provide for then wants, and to make them comfortable.
