A 1, KXANDRIA. wednesday evening. november 23^ Rev. ?r Parker, the famous English lec? turer now in thi3 country, says the strangest thing he sees here is the almost utter disre gard of money, and that a dollar is thought no more of hero thaa a shilling in his coun? try. He thinks that there mu3t either be a great collapse or a great discipline, aB tho existing extravagance can not go on much loogcr. There is a groat deal of truth in this The rich people of this country live as extravagantly as the emperoisof Rome did in the most luxurious dassof the Ro? man empire., and poor men herospeud more m >ney than the rich ones of foreign coun? ties do.

Coons are said to be plentiful this year in some portions of the county, and hunting them is generally considered to be fine sport. One of our Eastern Shore ex? changes tells bow to hunt them. It says: ?'This little animai, when chased from a cornfield by a lively Dack of hounds some? times runs two or three miles before he is driven up a tree, but his route is often cir? cuitous and the hunter always in cood hear? ing distance.
