ffi ALEXANDRIA. THC2SDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 24. In his last speech in New York, Govern? or Hill, ofthat State, said: "It is especially desirable that as a party we pursue, as against the common enemy, a bold and progressive policy and course of action. I dislike hypocrisy in polities, and would not do iudirectly wi.t?t I would nut do directly. I would remove republic in* from ot?co, not upon technical or trumped up charges or filse grounds, but because they are republicans, and are opposed to the prin? ciples of my party and to its success, and their retention in important places is detrimental to tho public interests which w?- seek to promote. L^t us recall the closing words of that famous St. Louis platform of 1S70, substantially dictated by Mr. Tilden himself: 'We demand a change of sys? tem, a change of administration, a chiuge of par? ties, that wa may have a change of measures and of men.'

friday evening, february 25. When President Cleveland was inau gurated, ho said : "Those who are selected, for a limited time, to manage public affairs, are &till of the people, and may do much by their example to encourage, consistently with the diguity of their official functions, that plain way of life whicb among their fellow citizens aids integrity and promotes thrift and prosperity." As the very best thins tich people can do with their money is to spend it, thereby increasing the amount of it in circulation, and giving employment to the poor, the wisdom of the economic and plain way ol life thus recommended by the Presi? dent to those in authority was never appa? rent to some people just as wise as Mr. Cleveland. But leaving its wisdom out ol view, one has only to read of the Inxitrioue ami extravagant life led by rvtne of the highest officers in the government, at Washington, to know that the advice of the President is not followed, no, even at the ft'hile House. ...
