ALEXANDRIA.. TH?ESDAY EVENING. JANTJABY 26. The convention held in Washington last Tuesday to elect delegates to the next na? tional republican convention was eo disor derly that not only the republican newspa? pers of that city, but many of those of the Nortb.profess to be shocked and scandalized at the proceedings, and some of the former even go so far as to point to them as a suffi cient reason for the existing deprivation of the people cf that city of the privilege of suflVag*. All this shows that the papers re fened to are either not sincere, have short memories, or else are ill in? formed of th9 recent history of their own country, for of all the republican con? ventions that have been held, where the col? ored clement constitutes the majority of the party, as it does in Washington, there have been few that were not characterized by timilar, if not even more disorderly be? havior. Washington and Northern repub? lican newspapers should send correspon? dents to the South to repo...

The Washington Star of yesterday esys the President, accompanied by Secretary Fairchild, took a walk in that city the even? ing before, the first time since be came there, and that be was followed all the way by a psraon who looked like a detective. In the earlier and better days cf the coon try its Presidents walked obout the streets of Washington like any other resident of the city, and there is no good reason why it shouldn't be the same way now. If the fact th ?t a crazy man shot President Gar field at a railway depot in Washington be sufficient to deter bis successors from walk? ing about tbe streets of that city, then the other fact that another crazy-man murdered lawyer Kennedy when leaving his office there a short time ago, cugbt to keep all tbe remaining lawyers there within doors.

"Rock of ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee.'* "Let mo hide myself in Thee,'"? Felt her soul no need to hide ; Sweet the song as song could be, And she had no thought beside. All the words unheodingly Fell from lips untouched by care, Dreaming not that they might be On some other lips a prayer? "Rock of ages, cleft for mo, Let me hide myself in 1 hce." "Rock of ages, cleft for me," Twas a woman sung them now, Pleading and prayerfully; Every word her heart did know.

"ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. JANUARY 30. "Alas foi the rarity Of Christian charity Under the san." A few daya ago a man, unable to bear the "slings and arrows oi outrageous fortune," or the heartaches occasioned by the knowl? edge of his inability to meet his require? ments as a supporter and helper of a de? pendent family, in an hour of gloomy fore? boding that ao olten steal o'er the aoul and makes more apparent its darkness, made bis quietus, that himself might not be an obstacle to the better condition of those be left behind.

TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 31. One of the accounts from the striking coal region In Pennsylvania says seventy five thousand women and children in that regiou alooe are suffering from the effects of the strike. If only men bore the hard Bhips necessarily consequent upon strikes, their action, in striking without having pre? viously made arrangements for what oom mon sense and experience teach them will be the result, would not be so culpable; but for a well man to quit permanent work, in the depth of winter, because some other man, whom he doesn't even know, imagines he has a grievance against his employer, and that too, with the fall knowledge that his saving?, if any, will not support his wife and children until he oan obtain employ* meot elsewhere, shows that he is deficient either Id understanding or in natural ailec tlon, aud that there is little or no reliable help in him.
