TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 5. The Richmond Terminal Contest.? Mr. J. L. Rice has written a letter to the New York Herald concerning the recent meeting of the stockholders of the Richmond Terminal Company,in which he saye: "The statement that any compromise was offered or suggested by myself or any of my associates is absolutely false. The state menfc that I asked for a guarantee of the payment of the dividend on the preferred stock is too absurd to require refutation. There was no person present who could give euch garrantee had I even dreamed of de? manding it. The statement that I asked for minority representation on the Terminal Board is a pure fiction.

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE ?. Nuw that Mr. Cleveland baB been re nomi sated, it behooves all good and true democrats to give bim their sincere and bam iy support, for, judging by experience, he will certainly make a better successor of himself than noyman the republicans are likely to nominate.
