WEDNESDAY EVENING, APRIL IS. The London Financial News, of April 9th, to band, concludes a long article on the altempted repudiation of Virginia's public debt, ur.d the injurious, moral and material effect thereof upon the people ofthe State, as fallows: "We reel it therefore our duty to warn our readers who are contemplating invest Diei ts it: tho United StateB to give Virginia n wide berth, and place their mocey iu oth ei quartets, where the advocacy of honesty ai d fiiir dealing is not held to be the worst possible recommendation and the distin guishing mark of a bad citizen."

****** c. w %~ ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY E\rENINQ, APRIL 11?. The only conceivable reason for a pro? tective taritl in a prcsperoue and well estab? lished republic would be that it enhanced the value of wages. But nothing is plainer th'in the fact that it does not do so, for it is well known that though the tariff affects all parts i f the country alike, there is as mucb difference in the price of the same kind of labor io different parts of it a=? there is in that of any thing else for which money is Hi-ked and received. Itisaho known that wages are higher in free trade Engl and than io the protective countries of Europe, and that they are about the same in the two principal British colonies in Australia, though a protective tariff is imposed in one and free trade exists in the other. Other conditions, not tariffs, raise and lower the price of labor, and ignorance or a wilful de? sire to deceive only asserts the contrary. Thp lowest wages paid in thia country are tnose in the industries...
