ALEXANDRIA, TUESDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 7. Collector Saltokstai.i., of Boston, made a s teech la3t Saturday night,in whloh he sa*;d : "Tne President was sworn to ful? fil tha civil service law. The democratic part}' is not to be blamed for being disap pointed, at times greatiy disappointed, in not beiDg able to do as other parties have done before, to follow out the act? of the re? publican party when it came into power in I860, and strip all the republicans from office and put iu democrats. Eut the "Presi? dent bad to be true to that law, and he was true to it, so far a3 he was able." The civil service law is bad enough, but it was its rule?, which the President could change at will, that werfi so objsctionable. That the law did not make bim retain the rule that excluded all ex-Confederates from the classiiied .lerviee is proved by the fact that be baa just abolished that rule?though, if it had ploabe-ii him, he coul 1 have done so three years aeo.

TUESDAY EVENING, FEBBUABY 7. A Singular Case.?There is considerable excitement in asuberb some miles out, over the death of A. D. Smith. Last Monday he died, to all appearence3, after calmly bidding adieu to his heartbroken wile. He was then ?Ires-ed for tbe grave, and on Tuesday pre? parations were made for his burial. In the midst of the services a thumping in the coffin was heard, the cover was burst off, and Mr. Smith eat up, causing great consternation and dismay. He was at once removed to hi3 bed at borne, and in a few hours he seemed me the worse for bis strange experience. Mr. Smith says he went to Heaven and saw many white spirits, porxe of them friends whom he had known on earth. They shook their head3 in answer to his questions, and pr'ioted to a big book lying open. Heiook < .1 at it and saw written there the names of bis wife, himself and his children who were alive.

He also ex* perimented with Miss Kitty Rood, and it is said ordered her to feign death.

?.L KXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 9. The fact that eight members of tho na? tional democratic committee, the committee that has charge of the national democratic par;y and itb campaigns, can not, consist j ently with the President's orders and letters on the euhjcCt, take part in the approaching meeting of that committee, simply because they happen to hold federal position?, af? fords another of the many instances that demonstrate the absurdity of oingwumpery. Two of the membtrs referred to are Cabinet ministers. The wisest men in the party should, of course, fill the highest offices, for the good of the country, but if called to thobe offices, under the orders referred to, the party must lose their services. Not only that, but they must lose the political rights and privileges enjoyed by al! the other citizens of the couutry. TheD, too, the absurdity becomes the more glaring when it is remembered that all the federal officers referred to were appointed to their offices solel...

THURSDAY EVENING, FEB. BY 0. Recently a -wan wa- cooked strictly according to the metrical i'-cipe in Yareli's "History of British Birds,"' and the dish is described as tast? ing something between a goose and a hare. The recipe is: Take throe pounds of beef, beat line in a mortar, Put into the swan that is, when you've eaught her: Some pepper, salt, mace, some nutmeg, an onion, Will heighten tho flavor in gourmands' opinion. Thou tie it up tight with a small piece of tape, That the gravy and other things may not escape; A meal paste, rather stiff, should be laid on the breast, And some whity-brown paper should cover the rest. Fifteen minctes at least ere the swan you take down, Full tho paste off the bird that tho breast may get biown. To a gravy of beof, good and strong, I opine, You'll be right if you add half a pint of port wine; Pour this through the swan, yes, qnite through the belly, Ami serve the whole up with some hot currant jelly. N. B.?Tho swan must not be skinned. . Tyi-...

John Wise, the Virginia, vice presi? dent of ihe national republican league, who called tho recent republican convention in ?Richmond to organize a State and couoty republican clubs, in a letter to the national republican clubs'csnvention, held in New Yoik prior to the call referred to, said : 1 Financially we are all right, commercially we uro prosperous, socially it is delightful hr-te, politically we are rotten to the core. Wo need clubs?hickory olubs." This shows that Mr. Wise is a man of many miads, for cot long ago, if reports be true, he was utterly disgusted with social affairs in Virginia, ?du soon after writing the quoted letter, thought political clubs of more avail than hickory club?.

David Webb, bis wife, a sixteen-year-old son, George, and a stepdaughter, Dora Win? tert?, aged twenty, have residod on Middle etreet. For some time past the daughter, who is n handsome girl, has been passing alleged bad coins upon the shop keepers, who, in most cases, refrained from making any attempt at prosecution or in? vestigation. It, however, came to the ears of the police, who informed the Treasury Department, and Detective Herchfield was *ent to Portsmouth. He, in company with a policeman, went to Webb's residence at an early hour yesterday morning.

SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 11._ Secretary Vilas, in his speech at tho Tihien banquet in New York last Thursday night, said the platform of the party by the euccesa of which he obtained his present position "demanded of a democratic admin istration to rcsiore the spirit of iratemity, of peace ami pood will amoDg tho men of this nation." When Mr. Vilas was Postmaster General he told ex-Congressiuan Gibson, so the latter says, and which, when asked about it, Mr. Vilas said he could not deny, tli:>t no ex-Confederate holding a minor position iu the PostoQice Department could be promoted. Does Mr. Vilas think such a title was conducive to the restoration of the spirit of fiateiuity, and of peace and good vfill among all the people of this nation ? II he does, he isgreatly mistaken; and nothing isnlainer than the fact that few of the white people of the section from which come the votes that elect democratic Presidents agree with him. _ Gov.
