ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 27.

General Lee was mortal, and therefore liable to errori but if htf was ever derelict in aught that helps to constitute a Christian gentleman, he alone was aware of it. As long aa civilization shall exist, the orders he issued in the ene? my's country will bb considered as modele of civilized warfare, and tho manner in which he conducted himself in the flush cl victory and the humiliation of defeat won the applause of ac admiring world.

Aitnost any kind of a house that a states? man wants to ]live in will cost him ?100 to $200 a month, and if be wants a house large enough to be conspicuous it will cost him from three to five times this amount. This is a great town for the renting of furnished housis, and furniture so rented brings in a3 a rule about 2 per cent, a month. A Wash? ington paptr containing rent advertisements lies before me as I write, and it has columns of houseB for rent at from $1,000 per month down. When you consider that a Congress? man gets .'only $417 a month you can see that a house that costs him $200 or $300 a month takes...

MONDAY EVENING OCTOBER 31._ Few Southern men who give the people of the North credit for tbe possession of or? dinary intelligence can understand why the latu-r still entertain so muoh apparent ani uiooity for ex President Davis. Tbe South was not responsible for tbe war between tbe States ; but suppose it was, Mr. Davis is no more to blame for it, or for any thing tbat occurred during it, than any ether one Southern man. He did not make hitnsell tbe President of the Confederacy ; did not seek that office ; but when called upon tc take it, be obeyed that call asany other mac in his section would have dono. Mr. Davis as an honorable man, did all he was capable of doing to discharge the duties of bis officf efficiently and to tbe satisfaction of those who bad elected him.
