ALEXANDRIA. friday evening, february 11. If thk colored i)eople in the South must he educated, the nation, which freed them, Bhould hear the expense, and not the States impoverished by their freedom. Therefore tbo Southern people, though awaro that a national appropriation for such a purpose would be unconstitutional, were willing it should be made. Because it was not made, however, is by no means a just cause of complaint against their representatives in Congress, bound by oath to act in accordance with their convictions. Then, too, tbo money of tbe Blair bill would not have been expended solely in the instruction of the black, but in large part in the instruction of the white children also. Aud some of the wisest and most expe? rienced men in the couutry think the State has no more right to educate than to clothe and feed children, and that many a man would work to educate bis children who will not work as long as that expense is borne by other people, that is, by the State ; and ...

?AT^XAIlSTPRIA. SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 12_ Mayor Hewitt, of New York, is an ex? tensive manufacturer and one of the largest employers in the country. Like all other wise employers he tries to make his em? ployees contented ; and that ho has succeed td is proved by the fact that they never strike. Here is what he says in respect of tlio late unsuccessful strike in New York : '?It is intolerable that under any circum? stance'.he business of a whole commuDity t-hall be arrested because tome man may imagine !ie lias grievances which rci|iiiro the sac riflce of thousands of iioople in order that he may get rights that ought to be secured to him by law ho-1 confirmed in the courts if they bt? de? nied him.

House of Representatives has reporter! to tho full committee as a substitute for both the Ed? munds ami the Belmont bills for retaliation upou Canada, is milder, not so likely to in? crease the ill feeling between this country and Great Britain, and more likely to allow reason an opportunity to settle the existing difficulty, than the latter of the two bills re? ferred to; but in view of the facts that the whole trouble is the legitimate result of the action of this government, and that the sole object desired to be achieved is to increase the proti's of a few Now England fishermen at the expense of all the other people of the country, it is hoped that it will be moder? ated in muny respects before it be permitted to pass. _ The appropriations provided for by the bills for fortifications, war ships and ord? nance, that have either passed the United States Senate or are...

ALEXANDRIA. WEDESPAY EVENING, FEBRUARY IG. IS Mr. Cleveland's letter accepting the nomination of the national democratic convention, he wrote the following words : "When we consider the patronage of this great office, the allurements of power, the temptation to retain public places once gained, and. more than all, the availability a party find3 in an incumbent whom a horde of officeholders, with a zeal born of benefits received and fostered by the hope of favors jet to come, stand ready to aid with money and trained political service, we recognize in the eligibility of the President for re? election, a most serious danger to that calm, deliberate and intelligent political action which must characterize a government by tho people." In view of Mr. Cleveland's actions since he became President, it is evident that he eutertai?s the fame ideas in '87 that he did in 'SI, that ho thinks tho eligibility of the President (or re election a "most serious dauger," and that, in his own case, he ...
