'I hubs AY F vening DECEMREB 8. A Yal?ab.e Antique.?A gentleman who recently changed bis residence from Baltimore to New York, wears, upon the third fioger of his left hand, a ring of inesti? mable value to iovers of antiquities.

saturday evening. december 10._ The rich New York dallies have means to eutible them to send out Polar aod Afri? can expeditions and to interview wholo Congresses at one time, but that they are as utterly ignorant of affairs within rifleshot of the capital of their own country as the South Sea Islanders are, is proved by the fact tint the New York Herald in referrirg to the late order of the War Department, directing the negro Equatters on the Arling ton reservation to vacate their illegal hold iiign within ninety days,says: "If the move i* in the interest of speculators and jobbers it i* an outrage that ought not to be tolerat? ed." How can speculators be interested in a government reservation ? The order was lesued for two good and sufficient reasons: the minor one, because the equatters were defacing and otherwise injuring the proper |.y ; the mnpr one, because while they pay Liii one oetit of taxes, the pi oplr of Alexan? dria county are compelled !o bury their d*ad, bopport the...

Somk OF those who oDce denounced the n adjusters 88 flat repiidiationisl9 have al? ready commenced to talk about having the "SbylockV1 and "bloodsuckers"?the own era of Virginia bonds?"at mercy" and of forcing them "to surrender." Such talk is by no means conducive to the settlement tf the State debt, and to the removal of the great impediment toYirginia's rise and prog r?:i- occasioned by the existing unsettled coadi'ion of that debt. The wiser course would be to advise the legislature to find out what further, if any, reductioti the creditors of the State will agrte to makeiu their just c'uiuiJ, and then to accept that offer as soon as possible; for no bondholder can be forced to sunender his claim on such terms a3 Ihe Stute may be pleased to offer him, as long as tie following decision of ti e U S.
