ALEXANDRIA.. WEDNESDAY EYENING. FEBRUARY 1. A year or two ago In a speech at St. Liuia General Sherman said he had private letters in his possession which proved that Mr. JVfferson Davis was guilty of conspira? cy. Mr. Davis, of course, denied the charge and demanded the production of the letters referred to. General Sherman could not pro duce the letters, and by all unprejudiced men, acquainted with the facts, was looked upon as the utterer of a willful and malicious falsehood. The General has an article in this month's number of the Century Maga zine, in which he practically reiterates his baseless charge, and says: "Some ambitious men of the Southern States, for their owu reaeon3, established a Southern Confeder acy, aud, by a conspiracy as clearly estab lished as any fact in history, they seized all the property of the United States within the seceded States, and proclaimed them< salves a new nation." The General, like m >st of his party, believes that havi...

'axexaistpria.. THURSDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 2. The reasoN3 for free trade between America aod Canada on Jthe north, and Mexico on the eouth, are just as patent as fhoeefor free trade between the different States rf the Union; but the protected su? gar plauters of Louisiana are just as much opposed to free trade with Mexico aa the pr jteoted ?sh packers of Massachusetts are to free trade with Canada. Nothing is bet ter known than the fact that the existeuce of the tarill is the cause of an immense smuggling trade with both Mexico and Canada. Attention was called to that with the former by a petition presented to the Senate yesterday. But, leaving the com paratively amall matter of smuggling outoi the question, the people of this country novi number about sixty million, all of whom eal sugar and fish, and why they ebouid be made to pay double price fjr those articles for no other good reason than to add to the profits uf a few sugar planters in Louisiana and fewer fish packers In Massa...

^^^^^^ SA 1 CR DAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 4. For some time after the commencement of the present administration, the rule with it was that no man ?bould be removed from office without good cau3e. When Col. Ludlow was recently removed from hia place aa Commissioner of tbe District of Columbia, his notice of removal was accompanied with a letter from the President, expressing confi? dence io the ability, integrity and efficien cy with which he had discharged the duties of the office. This shows a great change, and, in the case referred to, not unohjection able, as the Colonel was the especial object of attack of the republican newspapers of Washington, and was the only one of the three corumissioncs who seemed to be capa? ble of f>ntertaioinp the idea that a change should ever bo made in any of the numerous offices at their disposal. THK only surprising thing about the riot of the striking miners at Shenaudoah, Penn s\lvania, yesterday, is that it did not occur before. As usu-H ...

SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 4. Died in H15 Balloon Cab.?A farmer living in the woods several miles from Dn luth, Minn., reports the discovery in the woods several miles from his dwelling, and away from the traveled paths, of a stranded balloon. He also discovered in the limbs of a tree, against which the balloon was c&ught, the dead and half-decajed body of a man who had evidently been thrown vio? lently from the basket of the balloon, for the body wa9 wedged iu the branches, the head resting against a large limb. A great gash was cut across the forehead. The man iiad been probably about thirty ytar3 of age, with dark hair and beard, but the body was so far decayed that it was bard to distin? guish the features. There was nothing of importance in the pocket3 of the dead man ?nothing, indeed, by which he could .be identified. The car contained a sand bag half full, a compass, etc. A broken rope trailing some distance showed that the tin fortunate aeronaut had made every en...
