SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 5. Thr attacks recently made upon tbe President's civil service policy in the U. S. Senate, by the leading democratic members ofthat body, and the statement of Senator Plumb, republican, that the retention of so many lepublican office holders shows that enough good men can not be found iu the democratic party, only emphas'/.? the let? ter of Mr. Watterson, as published in the Uazettk some days ago; and it is under? stood that when tbe debate t.ha!l be resumed the attacks will bo even moro severe. But the most suggestive assault upon tbe policy referred to was that made by the democrat? ic members of the New York congressional delegation, when all of tbem except Air. Cox?who wanted the position?recom? mended Mr. Adams for Mr. Hewitt's place on the Ways and Means Committee of the House, for no other reason than the fact that that gentleman bad said openly that be would walk to New York and back barefooted to vote against Mr. Cleveland s re- i ? ction.

if it 1 MONDAY EVENING. FEBET'ARY 7. As the Jays of the present administra? tion run on, it is becoming more and more apparent that the reputation Mr. Cleveland o:.ce had for acting in accordance with his convictions of right, irrespective of conse? quences, couid never have had substantial louoHation, and has already dwindled to a whisper low. He knew it was wrong for him to rovoke Mr. Blackburn's commission, because tbat gentleman, when a boy, twen ty-iive yeurs ago, had written an extrava? gantly phrased Southern letter; but he thought if he didn't do so the republicans would howl. He knew it would be right to take bis wife to Kicbmond, where she would meet Miss Davis; but he feared to do so lest his party would lose votes in the North. He knew tho two rules of the civil service commission, that excluding men over forty five years of age, and tbat sending up only iour, instead of all the names tbat had pass? ed successful examinations, wero wrong; but be refused to abolish them b...

AT, EXANDRIA. TL* ks day evening, february s. Kei-RH-kntativk cabell, of Virginia, says: "i ain this kind of civil service man. i would (nit iu all tu the last man as a democrat, and put oat the last devil of a republican." Now that is carrying opposition to the Presideut'd idea of civil service reform to a rather extrerne point; but it shows the trend of the feeling with which the vast majority of democrats, North as well as South, regard the President's civil service policy. There never was a greater mi-take than the apparent supposition that the President is hound by the actiou of the con? vention that nominated h'tn to pursue his present course. The ouly reference made to civil service in the platform of the con? vention referred to, wa3 the simple declara? tion that: "'We favor honest civil serv? ice." By that declaration the democratic party still stands. But Mr. Cleveland him? self must know, that as he was elected for the express purpose of turning the rascals out, his reten...

i;; ft nl THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 10. Thk Alexandria Gazette keeps its in? dignation warm, and never allows to pass unimproved an opportunity to denounce President Cleveland. Its last leader is un? usually severe as well as unusually long.? Richmond Dispatch. The GAZETTE always says what it thinks, utterly irre-pective of what other people think, be they few or many, and as it never speak?, without thinking twice it is usually correct, and always speaks the same way. If some of its contemporaries would follow its wisci example in this respect their opin? ions would bp more effective. As regards length, the Dispatch is old enough to know that the strength of newspaper articles lies in their brevity, not in their length. The sensational announcement in the United States Seuato a day or two ago by Mr. Morgan, that English and French war ships were concentrating on either side of the l-ithmus of Danen, was the veriest bosh, but is only surprising from the fact that it was made with t...
