i VLEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, FEBB?AEY 20._ The State Senate of Virginia on Satur? day last discussed the following resolution aDd defeated it: Resolved (the House of Delegates cyncur-' riuu). That the members of the Senate aud the House of Delegates hereby pledge them? selves not to he candidates for Congress at tbe approaching national election. Its defeat was as unnecessary aa it3 intro? duction, as, if our memory be correct, a!! the members of the body referred to had previ? ously voted f>r a resolution favoring the re? moval of the tax on oleomargarine and whisky, but the retention of the tax on the necessarian of life. Ol eoursa the farmers of Virginia, the people whose votes elect Congressmen in ibis State, are not going to send men to Congress who support measures so diamet? rically opposed (o tho fanners' interests as (hose.referred-to. The farmers of Virginia very naturally want to sell in the dearest, and buy in the cheapest market, but they are prevented from doing so...

In tho middle of the port the waves w<.ro rolling as usual, when suddenly a column of water was projoctcd high into the air, and at the same moment (lames issued out of the cavity thus formed, lighting up tho sea and laud for some distance round. This phenomenon, which occur? red in the evening, lasted only a few seconds, but throughout tho night there were frequent shocks j of earthquake. The spectators of this strange sight related^ that the flames proceeded from ttie spot at which the ships were naoally moored.

WE ONES AY EVENING FEBRUARY 22. The belief that human beings should sleep with their heads to tbe north is said to have its foundatiou in a scientific fact. The French Academy of Sciences has made expe? riments upon the body of a guillotined man which go to prove that each human system is in itself an electric battery, one electrode being represented by the head, the other by the feet. The body was taken immediately after deuth and place on a pivot. :r> move as it might. After some vacillation the head portion turned toward the north, the. body then remaining stationary, < toe of the pro? fessor? turned it haif way around, but it euou regained its original position, and the sane r6sult was repeatedly obtained until organic movements finally ceased.
