Lamar. He bus tains ii at home and reaps tbe unsanctified fruits of an iniquitous and unhallowed fuc buecesa. He revels in nullification, a viola? tor of tbe Constitution and broken laws at borne, while bo speaks loyalty and in obedi ence at the North. At the South it is tbe voice of Jacob, at the North it la the hand of Esau." The President could have selected many a man from the South for a place on the Supreme Beuch better qualified for It in every respect tban Mr. Lamar; hut such ex? pressions as the above are well calculated to induce, not only all Southern men,but all Americana who want the war to be over io fa...

SATURDAY EVENING, JANUARY 7. llow the A IE Bbakb Works.?Said a railroad man to me to da;: "I'll bet not ore in a hundred of the people who travel on railroad trains understand how the press? ure of sir is used to apply the brakes to a train. When the airbrake was first invented tbe air was turned into the cylinder under each car when the car was to be stopped, and the pressure was exerted to force the brakes up against the wheels. But at the present day the brakes are held against the wheels bp springs, and tbe air is turned into tbe cylinders to push the brakes away from tbe wheels as long as the train is in motion. When it is desired to stop the train tbe air is let out, and then the springs apply the brakes and stop tbe train. This last methed of using air pressure has great advantages over the old way on the score of safety. Whenever an accident happens to a train onti of tho first effects it is apt to have is to rupture the air pipes leading from tbe engine to the cylinders und...

AT^EXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 10. Senator Jones, of Nevada, has offered a resolution in the Senate "requesting the President to negotiate a treaty with China containing a provision that no Chinese shall r n cr the United States except ambassadors and others engaged in the diplomatic eer v ci, aud merchants engaged in trade be? tween the United States and foreign coun? tries." The relations between this country ami China are friendly. What would Mr. Jone?, or arjy other American citizen, think of a foreign country, with which tho United SiateB are at peace, which should demand of this country a treaty by which no Ameri can citizen except ambassadors and mer? chants should be admitted into that coun? try? The world is too old now.and freedom too prevalent, and population too dense, for people to be kept within the boundaries of their native countries.

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 11. Senator Stanford says he determined from the lime Mr. Lamar wa3 nominated for the Supreme Bench to vote for his con firrnation, and that he has seen nor heard nothing since to induce him to change that determination. He also says that that was the determination of other republican Sena tore, bat that some men are easily affected by party pressure. It is well known that until the republican opposition to Mr. La mar's confirmation became apparent, Sena? tor arts was in iavor of that confirmation, ami that it was only party pressure that in? duced him to oppose it. But that pressure having beeu applied, be at once yielded, and from being a member of the conservative wing of his party, became a blatant section? alism Poor Evarts!

THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 12. To reasonable and unprejudiced peo? ple the injustice of the recent verdict in the New York breach of promise case becomes more and more apparent the more it is thought about. If the role be established tout all promises to marry are made under pain of heavy damages in case of failure to fulfil! such promise3,fewer will be made and fewer marriages will take place. There are many things that may occur or that may be iearced after an engagement that may be good cause for breaking it, and if the law makes the fulfillment of such engagements the only alternative of excessive damages, prudent men v?ill beeitate a long time before making them. But the law, rightly Interpreted, does no such thiog, as a promise to marry is not a contract, bat only a promise to make a contract at fiome future time. Thk democratic Ways and Means Com? mittee of the democratio House of Repre? sentatives is now engaged in the preparation of u revenue tariff by which tho expendi ture...

Her father is Mr. Dottie, the cellar excavator. She lay in the coffin two days, in her white shroud, with flowers al 1 around her. Her friends came to see ber :tud take leave of the remains of a once beautiful and esteemed girl, and at length the moment arrived when she was to be borne to her last resting place. As may be supposed, her mother was most affected; she was frantic with grief, in fact, and her cries were loud and bitter. She refused to leave the coffin and when they forced her away she hciearned loud enough to awake the ?leid. And, as sure as my name is John Tierney, iho girl opened her eyes. Such ...
