ALEXANDRIA. saturday evening, april 28. Thk bumor that the Vatican intended is? suing a decree condemning boycotting has proved correct. It ia now telegraphed from Rome that tho decree referred to baa been issued, and that the Pope coudetnus tho I oy? cott, ar.d declares it "a practice contrary to justice and charity." The practice is not only unjust and uncharitable, but is pesi lively crimina),and, If Buccessfal.wnlcb, for? tunately, it never or rarely is, would pro duci untold suffering lipon the poor. The rich crt? always take care of themselves. A miller in a neighboring city was boycotted a year or so ago because be used barrels tbat had bosn used before in which to pack his flour. He did so because such barrels being cheaper than new ones he could afford to sell bis fk?ur cheaper than his competitors, thereby increasing his own trade, to be sure, but at the same time ber.etiiitg the poor by reducing the price of the prime necessary cl life. This boycott.as iu all other cases,...

SATURDAY EVENING. APRIL 28. He Gave it Up.?One of the poets of the j First Etnpire, Nepomucence Lemercier, ] wrote a tragedy whose hero was Christo- j pher Columbus. He bad in it violated the ? unities which Frenchmen for years consid? ered an inviolable) law of tragedy. When Lemercier'ri piece was played the studenfa : hissed it with great vehemence. Napoleon admired Lemercier, and when he heard the tragedy bad been biased he ordered it to be j played again. It was again hissed. He be- j came furious. He ordered it played a third j time, and went to the theatre pecompanied I by a reuiment of soldiers The first and J second acte were heard in eileuce. It wae i at the third act that the hisses were most | vigorous. When the curtain rose on the third act, Napolean leaned over his box and looked at the students, to see if they would dare oppose bis known will in his presence.

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. APRIL 30. AM0N<; THE least defensible things done by our last legislature was the reduction of the appropriation heretofore annually al? lowed the University. We have already in passing condemned this piece of false econo? my but it deserves further comment. Had the measure, indeed, been duly weighed, it wou'd never have been enacted and the democrats would have one less blunder to answer fa*. At this late day, after'us sixty livo yi are of honorable usefulnes?, it ought to be unnecessary to say a word ia defence of the institution of which Virginians have so 1 >ng beeu proud, but, as fresh vindication eeems requisite, we want to add something.

MONPAT EVENING. APBIL 30. Two Striking Figures.?Two striking figures have become familiar to people along the fashionable part of Rhode Island avenue and out Fourteenth street. They are al? ways on horseback, sweeping along at p. brisk trot or canter, and whisking around corners with a reckless grace.

Ami yet in New York last Sunday night ho delivered aleci ure, in which he spoke of tho Catho? lics in free America being "condemned by the fossilized scribes?Pharisees at Rome? who are the cu3todian3 of God's word, and we can't nflord to wait for centuries to cor? rect the mistakes of the present Pope aud propaganda." He said, "The Pope is going to invade New York, they Bay, slipping into Sandy Hook with a band of Jesuits, every Jesuit with a dagger iu his. bolt tied up with a rosary. What are we going to do about it? We will meet tbem boldly with arms fn our bauds.'' He also said : "The Irish, in Ireland, were always sending round the bat to relieve their poverty and misery, and yet managed to send thousands of dol? lars a year to the Pope as Peter's pence." Tue surprising thing about Dr. McGlynn is not that he should have any Catholic fol? lowing, but...

TUESDAY EVENING. MAY 1. A Wonder in Snrgery. Ooe of the moat delicate and notable aar- j Rioal operations ever performed in the world j was made in Philadelphia on Saturday, it j being nothing less than a transplantation of a | portion of the eye of a rabbit to the eye of a human being. The object of the operation was to relieve the obscurity of the rye of a patient which was caused by inflammation, r*i)d which produced in lime an opaque sur? face. The pntiaut was a servant girl, whose ??yes had become almoht totally useless, so f*r as vision ws~ concerned, by reason ofj tne whitish coating, which made both of the j orbits opaque, and she was so nearly blind that objects of considerable size were barely distinguishable at the email distance of five feet. The operation took place under the immediate direction of Dr. S. Webster Fox, the opthaimio surgeon of the institution, who witnessed one of the only two opera? tions of this nature which have been per? formed in the world, in Germa...

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, MA V 2. Thk statement and appeal of Mr. Lead beator in reference to the Alexandria and Maryland ferry will attract attention in the community and should be carefully pon? dered and have due weight. That every? thing to foster and increase the trade of the city should be done goes without saying, and in order to facilitate trade aud traffic every reasonable meana should be adopted. In all places of business aud enterprise pro? per facilities are provided for ingress aud egress, and without means of communica? tion our business interests must, of necessity, languish. The season when it is most im portant that there should be regular transit between this city and the opposite shore in Maryland is upon us, and if immediate ac? tion is not taken the result, in a commercial point of View, will be disastrous. The mat? ter will, it is understood, bo brought up at the next meeting of Council, and it is not too much to expect that some action will be taken then ...

thursday evening, may 3. Should the Sistees Pass the Plate.? It seems to me that the idea of ladies pass? ing the contribution plate in our churches is an excellaot one. In some of the Western States it was done that way years ago, and BOme churches cut there keep up the prac? tice. There is nothing out of the way about it. If ladies preside at organs and sing in our choirs, why not have them pass tbo plate also? "There is no harm, as far as I can see/' said a regular lady attendant of our churches to me last Sunday evening. "And there are coed reason- why the ladies would make first, class co: lectors; Men would be more apt to drop in the plate 10 cents or a quarter instead of a nickel, if only for appearance sake, and as an extra con? tribution to beauty. Of course the pret? tiest ladies in the congregation must be se? lected for the work. Then, again, the ladies would aSi give something, for they know that two eyes would be watching them, and for shame sake, and for fear they woo...
