^?few . WEDNESDAY EVENING. APRIL 11. A foreign monarchist in the gallery of the U. S. Housa of Representatives, on any one of the late seven days who witnessed the proceedings on the lloorof that body, must have gone away with a poor opinion both of the free institutions ofthi.-? country and of the intelligence of a people whose representatives so deport themselves. On Wednesday last a bill came up in that body to make taxation in this country equal, iu other words to return to some people money which had been collected from them, but from the payment of which other people had been exempt. From that day until thi=, one fifth of the memln n of the House have succeed? ed, by all sorts of frivolous and puerile parli? amentary t actics, in para!yz'?g the most im? portant legislative business of sixty million people. * Measures of eeiious interest to many or all the people of tho country have been delayed, if not entirely defeated, by roll calls on t|ue<??onB as to whet her a recess s...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, A PEIL 11. The Libby Prison Folly. We are not aware what stage of proceed- j logs the proposition to tear down and re move the Libby Prison from Richmond to this city has now reached, but whatever it i may be the sentiment of the people of Chi cagO is in favor of its abandonment. The whole scheme to tear down the building, bring it here and set it up for a public show, to which an admission fee will be charged, is silly and useless and will be unprofitable. Every dollar invested in it will be sunk, BDd ought to be. If it is intended to bring up personal reminiscences of the war, it will fail in its purpose, as few if any soldiers west of Indiana wtre confined there. The West? ern ex Holdisrs will care, nothing for it. If it )? intended for a display of the "bloody ahirt," it would be more practical to move it to Philadelphia, New York, or Boston, as 95 per cent, of the Libby prisoners belonged in tbo East. If the projectors want to revive reminiscences of the terr...

ALEXANjOEIA. TU?R8DAY EVENING, APRIL 12. It was observed that Mr. John Wise, in bis letter to Mr. Elam, written after he bad read General Mabone'a rasping reply to bia own "pronunciamento," as the General call? ed it, was very mild in his references to the General, whom be still spoke of as bia per aooal friend, and as admirable in every re? epect. And now Mr. Wise's brother, an? other republican politician, Bays, in an in terview published in a Philadelphia repub? lican newspaper: "I think Mabone will be re-elected chair? man of the State committee, and he ought tc be. He has more influence than any othei man with tho elements tbat compose out party in Virginia. An effort is made tc make it appear that my brother, John B, Wisp, is antagonistic to Mabone. This is not true. They will understand each other, though bu?ybodies ere to day trying tc alienate them.

AL SXANDRIA. SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL 14. Many democratic newspapers com? mend the action of tbe majority of the demo? crats in the U. S. Heine of Representatives, in surrendering to a small minority of their party on tbe question of the direct tax bill, and say. with confident simplicity, the pas? sage of the bill referred to has only been delayed, and that thebill will be passed next December without any difficulty. The bill was nearer its passage oa Wednesday the 1 h ius-., when it was lirst called up in the Horn?, than it ever will bo again during Ibn, the r>0;h Congress. Why, Mr. Oates, the leader of the filibusters, doesn't hesitate to say tho :>i'l is already dead, and that he knew such would be the effect of the success of the tactics to which he and his forty fol? lowers resorted. The defeat of tho bill may have little or no eO'ect in the North, where the money tbat would have been returned by it was paid out of the surplus in State treasuries, but it must be otherwise...

Rating it at the price it would bring provided it could be saved in the form of inch lumber ono would staod appalled at the figure*. For every miliiou feet of lumber piled on the dock?, coniiug trom the circular saw, about 200,000 feet of the best portion of the timber pat-sts inly the "fiery furnace1' as fuel, iii ttie form ol sawdust.
