ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 22._ By thk report of the U. S. Consul atTun etall for the current month it is seen that Americau cotton spinners pay no more for Jabor than their competitors ia free trade England do, and considerably less than is paid on the continent, that is, if tbe compar? ison be. made by the product cd* labor and not by the number of hours consumed. And yet Mr. Randall says a high duty fehall be maintained on cottons in order that the la? bor in the cotton mills of this country may be paid higher wages than are paid abroad. Such a duty unquestionably does enable the rich American protected cotton manufac turer to pay his hands higher wages than are paid in England, but be doesn't do it, and the thought of availing himself of that ability never even enters his mind. He.inac cordance with tho instinct of human nature, biii, s bis labor where he can secure it cheap? est, totally irrespective of the tariff.

A LEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING. MAY 25. THE RUMORED reason for the opposition of the democratic Senators to the discussion of tho Canadian fisheries treaty-the work of a democratic administration?is that du. ring such a discussion something, or many thiug<. might be said that would engender ill fe?lin:: between this country and Eng? land. Such a rumor can not be true; for nothing more calculated to provoke Eng? land could bo uttered in an open discussion of the G?beries treaty iu the Senate than has been, or will be, Baid in similar debates on any other question in that, or the other branch of Congress. If the provisions of the treaty maintain the just demands of this country, and be conducive to the interests of the people thereof, the greatest publicity should be given them, and so far from oppo? sing that publicity, the democratic Seca'ors, of all others, Bhould most insist upon it.
