' ^^^^ ALEXANDRIA. THUGS DAT EVENING, MAY 10. The Labor Standard, ofPateraon, and the Labor Enquirer, of Chicago, boih published in the interests of the knights of labor, bold? ly accuse Chief Powderly of fraud and cor? ruption, and say the treasury of the crdtr baa been plundered to euch an extent by those having it in charge that it is now empty. Though these broad avowals are accompanied with detailed statements to sustain tbem, Mr. Powderly ha? not yet even attompted to disprove them. But the assessments of the individual members of the ordir still go on, and are paid by those who fear the effects of suspension or expul? sion in CBS3 of delinquency. Every man has the right to spend his own money in his own way; but it seems strange that so many men should ba willing to devote regularly a portion, no matter how small, of their hard earned wages, and with no resulting advau tage to themselves, to tho support of other men in idleness and luxury.

THTJBSDAY EVENING, MAY 10. How Coffee is Grown.?The culture of coffee is the chief Industry of Venezuela, and a day lately spent at San Bernardino, a large coffee estate, gave me a chance to learn something of the matter. For this culture a rich, well watered soil is needed, with plenty of shade, for the coffee is a delicate tree and cannot stand the direct rays of the sun. Really, there is no tree at all, only a scraggy bush eight or ten feet high, look? ing much like a venerable lilac. Early in March they are white with blossoms, pretty star shaped posies with a faint, delicious perfume. The plants grow only from ~eed, which is planted ju*t before the rainy season, ninety trees to the acre. In about live years a yield may be counted upon, and thenceforth for an average of thirty. There is gathered from each tree some eight or ten pounds of coffee annually. Every one raises coffee. Every one talks coflee Every one sells coffee, and not a living cook in Venezuela appears to know bow...

~ ALEXANDRIA. FBI DAT EVENING. MAY 11. Thk Richmond Dispatch says : "The Alexandria Gazette has censured the President again and again for Dot turn ing republ cans out of office, and ridiculed bis civil service reform notions. It censured him for keeping Frederick Douglas in a lu crativo offics?, and for putting another negro iuto the same office when Frederick was re moved. It ha? blamed him for turniug out of office, or revoking the appoiutment cfa Southern man who whilst a minor bad made a foolish remark. In fact, the President must look upon the Gazette as a chronic grumbler, and have wondered whether he could do anything that would please that excellent journal. ***** Finally, if the gazette can support Mr. Cle ve laud after having done more than any other paper to destroy his popularity in Vir ginin, surely the rest of the Virginia demo crate can support him although he would bav? the tariff reduced a Httle more than they would."

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, MAY 14._ Thk views of our correspondent X X. in the GAZETTE of Thursday id reference to late legislation unfriendly to the University are both true and suggeetive. He is quite right in denouncing the reduction of the annual appropriation as demagogism pure and simple?a silly attempt to conciliate the poor man by injuring the particular in? stitution which it has been the fashion to consider a place only for rich men's sous. His communication is the more timely be cause it suggests a refutation of the common false impression on this subject. We have already shown (hat, if the University were open on'y lo the sons of the rich, it would scarcely bo unjust that thoso who pay eo large a part of the taxes that keep up the free scho:;!s without availing themselves of their a ivaniage? should have ioe than one fortietb of the public revenue expended for their exclusive benefit. But there is no need for this justification. The University is not euch an expensive p...

A LEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 15. THE SUBJECT OF industrial education is attracting much attention at present, not only in fchonl circles, but in the community generally.
