Last year ruoro hears were killed in that county thau in any year since its settlement. Two of the party, Dr. J. B. Neale and C. Mitchell, had a terrible adventure with two of the animals, that wili sound more like the romances of the West tban an incident ihat actually occurred in a thickly populated r.iucty of Pennsylvania. Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Ncale had started cut in the morning together, and in pursuing a doer iu the afternoon they got farther away from the > imp tbau they intended. Night coming on, and it being a pleasant one, fhey concluded to Ciiup out. In hunting a suit? able place they ran across a cave in a ledge of recks and thought it would be just the thing. They bui.t a fire, broiled a couple of rabbits and made a hunter's supper, after which they lay down, and from t...

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 4. Senator Vance in a recent speech said that "one portion of this country continues to claim the right to interfere with the do? mestic affairs of tho other in ways most illegal and offensive." And in saying this, I he Senator only expressed a fact of which every well informed man is aware, whether he live in the North or South. No matter what is done in the North, the idea of inter? ference never enters the brain of a Southern man ; but there is hardly a breach of the peace in the South that is not a sufficient cause for active interference on the part oi Northern States or the representatives oi 6uch States in the Congress of the nation. But the North after a while, perhaps, will learn that the South will go her own way, utterly irrespective of all such interference, and that that interference is only condu? cive to the maintenance of the solidity ol the South. During the eighty-eight years of the Gazette's existence it baa observed the rlee...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, january 4. The Con doe's Wonderful Flight.? D ?-win, while watching locglhelofey flight ol the Iammergeier's American cousin, the oondor, in ita great circling sweep at enor mous altitudes above the Chilean plains, wondered at the bird's power of thus sailing, hour afcer hour, in those great sweeping cir? cles without any apparent motion of the ou'spread wings. He arrived at the proba b y correct solution of the puzzle?a puzzle which has bothered a good many other ob? servers in watching the spiral flight of the eagle and the red tailed hawk. The extend? ed wing? gave not a single flap, but seemed to form the fulcrum on which the move? ments of the rest of the great bird?his neck, body, and tail?acted. "If the bird wished to descend, the wing3 were for a moment c/ilapst-d.aud when again expanded, with an altered inclination, the momentum gained by t he rapid descent seemed to urge the bird u ward wt'.h the even andst*-ady movement of h paper knife."

ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. JAN?ABY 5. Thk engineers who devised the plan for the reclamation of the fiats off Washington city may be the moat scientific in the world, bat that they will have to rely upon other than that work to establish their ekillgoes without saying. The mud which was dredged from the channel and depos? ited on the flats, Boon finds its way back under the riprap work, thereby necessitat? ing constant redredging in order to enable vessels of any considerable draught to reach the wharves. Then, too, as the upper end of 'he channel has been closed, thereby con? verting a free and open water way into a basin, all the ice that forme upon it in the winter, though broken into small pieces, re? mains, as there is no current to carry it off.

FBI DAT EVENING, JANUARY 6._ The chief points of Senator Sberman'a recent trite speech on the tariff are that the rle-inoeralic party is responsible for the fail? ure to provide for a reduction of taxation; t hat the existing surplus is due to the failure of the democrats to provide for rivers and bar bors, dependent relativea of soldierp, coast defenses, and for otber large expenditures ; that the duky on sugar should be removed, and a bounty be offered to American sugar planters, and that Dice-tenths of the articles manufactured in this country are aa cheap as tbey are in England. No one knows bel? ter than Mr. Sberman that, save only and except for the united support the republi? cans in the TJ. S. House of Representatives have given the small Randall faction in that body, and the solid opposition of the repub? lican majority in the Senate, the people of the countty would now be reaping the manifold advantages of a low tariff.
