ALEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING. JANUABY 20. It 13 now understood that the delay in the confirmation of Justice Lamar of the United States Supreme Court was oaneed by the absence from the Senate Ju? diciary Committee of Senators Hoar and Edmunds, who were busy with a case before the Supreme Court, as it is the rule of that committee not to act on a ncmi nation in the absence of any member who expresses a wish to be heard thereon. Thus it i3 seen that the two Senators re? ferred to, who profess to be so regardful of the people's interests, have no hesitancy in making the latter subordinate to their own. Of all the men in the U. S. Senate none are more alive to their own individual interests than the two referred to, nor more ready to sacrifice the public interest in order to ad vanoe their own. It's right hard that the j ublic business of the country should be de leyed for weeks in order that Senators Hoar and Elmunds shall earn private fees by practicing in the TJ. S. 8upreme Court. A gr...

TA-L^XA.ISri>RIA. SATURDAY EVENING, JANUARY 21. Two bills have been introduced into the Virginia Legislature relative to the State Board of Medical Examiners which demaad more than passing notice. One of these looks to the repeal of the law providing such a board, and the other to exempting from pa?3iug before it the graduates of cur State Medical schools. The latter appears to have been stimulated by a petition from the students of the Richmond Medical Col? lege, and both bavo elicited from the presi? dent and secretary of the State Board ol Examiner-', as mentioned in cur Richmond letter of the 17th, a circular in fctout opposi tion. Neither of these bills should become laws. Leaving the doctors themselves to vindicate the advantages to their profession of a sufficiently high standard of admission to its ranks, we epeak for the people on wh(mthe doctors have to practice. They demand and they are entitled to the utmost practicable protection from incompetent practitioners. It is...

satubday evening, january 21. Rescued by A Dog.?On Dec. 29 last the steamship Muley Hassan was passing through tba Straits of Gibraltar, whenCapt. Thomson went on deck with his retriever Nel ie. The sagacious animal at once ran to the rail of the vessel, raised herself on her fore pawa and commenced to whine. The captain looked, but could see nothing. The dog, however, got more and more restless, and b'naliy jumped overboard and swam astern. The engines were stopped and a boat lowered, wbon the dog wa3 discovered firmly bo ding the collar of the coat of a drowning man, who wa3 lyiug across two oars. It was alterward ascertained that he wa? the only survivor from a Spanish reve? nue h iluccu, which had been upset in asqnali, und that he had been iu the water four boors when rescued.

^^^^ TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 24._ A3 stated in ye?terday'a Gazette, Rep re3entative Browne, of Virginia, that day introduced a bill in the U. S. House of Rep reseutaiives providing for an ice boat on the Potomac. Such a bill, or one authoriz? ing the Secretary of the Treasury to con tract with the owner of Borne boat already built, for keeping open the channel of the river should be passed at once. Navigation on the Potomac is now closed, and the na? tional capital restricted to railroads for all its supplied. Of course an advance in the price of those supplies, or of some of them at least, has been the result. The commerce of a long river is suspended, and the people living in the country along its banks cut off from market, by a few miles of ice, through which a channel could be kept open for a frw thousand dollars._ Next to the War, the State Department at Washington has been the place where muswumpery seemed to be the mcst thor? oughly entrenched.
