^^^|^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^ ALEX A-ISTDRI A.. FBI DAT EVENING, FEBRUARY 24._ In his speech at the banquet of the South? ern Club in New York last Wednesday night, Mayor Hewitt of that city said : "The irrepressible conflict is now taking a new shape. It is now a conflict between the manufacturing States of the North and those of the South, in which victory is al? ready perching upon your banner; and be .fore the lapee of the ceDtury your manufac? tures will outnumber those of the corres? ponding Northern States. In the South iron is to-day placed on the furnace bank at cheaper rates than it is in Great Britain. Yet there are Southern men who go in for protection. Why, it ia Pennsylvania and New Jersey who want to be protected against the South. It is not you who lost ; 'oe cause, but the protective States that lost it. The victory come? to you. These States that have so long relied on artificial stimu lants: these States, which have discovered that in compelling you to become loyal sons of ...

MON AY EVENING. FEBBUABY 27. Pessimism in Literature.?a few cays ago Mr. Berth, a young New Yorker, com? mitted suicide in a hotel at St. Paul. Minn. The explanation giwn for bis raeb act is that constant study of pessimistic literature had 'affected d\h mind. Among his books was found a melancholy *;iie by Edgar Salt u8, in which Berth had marked many de? pressing passage:- About eights -years ago fashionable societj in London affected great admiration fur Adiiifeou'.- tragedy of "Cato.*" After one of tbe staKe renditions ol the p ay a man Darned Btidgell, impress ed by the closing scene of the play, in which the hero commit- suicide, left the theatre and, plung? ing into the Thames, was drowned. On his body was found this couplet : What Cato did and Addison approves Hast needs be right. While such susceptibility to pessimistic writing as was shown by Berth and Budgeii in, of course, extremely n.re, it is neverthe less a fact thatun author who depicts life in dreary colors is sure ...

ALEXANDRIA. tuesday evening, februaey 23. Thebe was an open teat of strength in one of the Pennsylvania districts last Satur? day between the high and low tariff demo? crats, over the election of delegates to the Stale convention to cbocae delegates to the national democratic convention, and the latter won by a decided majority, though opposed by all the means Mr. Randal! could use agaioet them. The Virgin;a democrats, in choosing their delegates to their coming State convention, should be sure to see that :ho men tbey select are right on the tariff question, so that there may not be a repeti? tion of such a remarkable and aatonishing spectacle as that of a convention of the democrats of the agricultural State of Vir? ginia passing, without a word of protest, a resolution declaring for the removal of the texon whisky and oleomargarine, and for retaining it on ealt, clothing, agricultural i mp'.emeuls?indeed on everything farmers have to buy.

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNES DAY EVENING, FEBB?ABY 29. Of all the various kinds ot business that which, on account of its great public re sponslbility, can leaBt alTord any interfer? ence with ita management is the railroad. Not only the people who travel on ami send freight by railroads, but the hundreds of thousands who have invested money in them, intrust their lives and property to the care of the management of those roads. How could that trust be efficiently dis? charged if every man in the employ of the cads didn't recgoniza the authority of the management thereof, andobey itsorders im plieitly without theslightest regard for those from any other source? As well might an army expect to be successful if its "ergeants were to organize aud choose a leader, and fellow hin orders insuad of those of their General, cs for a railroad to be conducted safely and profitably whose engineers and firemeu obey the ordeie of a '"brotherhood" rather than that of the isids own managt meut. ______________...
