~ ALEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING. MAY 4. In thk early days of the administration the few democratic editors to whom oflice was given were compelled to relicqoieh their papers, other democrats who had been ap? pointed to office were removed for making democratic speeches, and others prohibited from being officers of democratic clubs, all upon the ground that a pure aud uodefiled civil s-ivice would not brook anything that had the remotest tendency toward active iutei ference in politics. Fortunately for the democratic party all this has, owing, as is not unnaturally supposed, to the near ap? proach ef another election, been changed, and nits', of the democratic conventions are now run by democratic office holders, and though Mr. Glasscock, of this district, a mi? nor office holder in the Treasury Depart? ment at Washington, three years ago was prohibited from acc-ppting the honorary po si!ion of vice president of the Virginia dem ocratic association cf that city, it is now printed in the...

FEI OAT EVENING. MAY 4. Au Insane Lover. The power of the law had to be invoked to relieve Miss Nannie Mesmer, teacher of the pnblic school at Marvin's Chapel, in this county, from the persecutions and tbrea's of an insane lover, named Thos. Littleton, who resides in the easteru end of the county, Red last Saturday Justice J. S. Powers, af t?r taking some testimony in the case, com? mitted Littleton to jail until he can be re moved to an asylum. It seems that Little ton, without any acquaintance with tec voung lady, became possessed of the idea that Bhe must become his wife, and one Sun day in the early part of March walked up to her as she was about to leave the church and informed her that she must go with him and become his wife. Tne young lady was frightened as well as greatly surprised at his action, and sought shelter from the rude advances of the young man by appealing to Mn. Jacob Myers, with whom she was boarding, for protection. The youne man retired, and resorted to the u...

SATURDAY EVENING. MAY 5. WE kemabkf.d a few days Bioce on tho recent reduction by the General Assembly of the annual appropriation to the Univer? sity and pointed out the folly of such ac? tion. Any legislalion calculated to impair I ho tflicieccy of that great school is a blow at the best interests of educatiou among us and a signal tlunder. Five thousand dollars saved out of the ealaiies of hard workicg ptofersors is a small matter to the State treasury, but it may beagreat matter to the cause of learning if it occasions the loss to the University of even one of the ablest of its instructor?, and it may very well occa? sion the loss of several. The system of public free schools in Vir? ginia is maintained at an annual oullay of $1,700,000. This great Bum is of course largely made up of the taxes pnid by men of property, men who do not need and do not avail tbemBolves of State aid in the earlier education of their sons, but who desire fjr them when older those advantages which, pin...
