jrml & fig* MONDAY EVENING, JULY 2. This South has been peaceful and qaiet during, the democratic administration. Not eu^h a pfac.', as the Northern republicaun would have it, ad reigned at Warsaw, but th *l which exists amoDg people who, being wise eoougb to know that such a condition is a Ivantageoua to their owu interest?, do all in. their power to promote and preserve it, as attested by such competent Northern judges as ex-Gov. Chamberlain of South Carolina and 6x-Gov. Bullock of Georgia. Such a condition is of course conducive to the welfare of the section, and consequently to the prosperity of the people thereof. Those people therefore make and have more money now than when the prosecution of their industries was interrupted and hin? dered by race difficulties and trouble?, and uncertainties. And yet, though the North, as the market of the South, as the place in which the South Fells it products and buje Its supplies, reaps its full share of the bene? fits of peace and tra...

Ons hundred and twelve years ago this couotry severed its allegiauc3 to Great Britain and declared itself free and inde? pendent. Littlo did the men who cut the bond think of the great nation they had thereby created. The country was then composed of thirteen small and sparsely Bet : [< d colonies. It now comprises thirty-eight 'a go and prosperous 3tatcs, several Terri tories, some with populations sufficient to entitle them to Statehood, aud sixty odd million of the richest and best conditioned people on the face of the ecr?.b, able to take cere of themselves and to defy all the rest o!' mankind. What will be the condition of their descendants one hundred and twelve years hence, or even halt that time, is more (ban can bo dreamed of in their or any body else's philosophy, for things have hap? pened here in less than the latter period that no mortal man ever dreamed before.

Intelligence krcm all parts of the coun? try is to the tfl'ict that the Fourth of July was celebrated yesterday as generally as ever before in the history of the nation. This was as it should have been. This is a great country, and its people should delight to honor and celebrate the anniversary of its birthday; In THK July number of the North Aim ri ceo: Reviewer. Isador Kayner, a democratic representative in Congress from Baltimore, in an article on 'issues of the Coming Cam paigp," Bays: "The time has not yet ar rived when any man or set of men can claim to be better or stronger than either oi the gr*at parties that now divide the popu? lar feelings of the country." It would be conducivo to the success of the democratic party next November if this wise and cor r'ect idea of Mr. Rayner's were entertained aud ac'ed upon by the managers of the democratic party.

Fiack went to Niagara Falls last week with his boat to raco through the rap? ids and whirlpool to Lewistoa, with Charles Percy, of Niagara Falls, who made a trip through the waters last year in a boat of his own construction.

iiLEXANDRIA. FBI >ay EVENING, JULY 6._ It 3kems impossible for republican poli? tics to get out of tho rut of sectionalism, and for Northern republicans to conceive the idea that the people of the South are sub j ct to the influences of human emotions. There is hardly an occasion for the expres tion cf republican politics in the North on which some reference to the defeat of the Sv nth in the civil war is not made. Now there are some worthy Southern republi? cans, not many to be sure, but some as good and truo men as can be found within the democratic ranks. But, being men, they have human feelings, and no man likes to ban minded of a defeat, or to be looked upon by his neighbors as a supporter of a party that is opposed to them on sectional grounds, and that delights to make them fee! uncomfortable by incessantly recalling the bitter memories of their unsuccessful cause. Even Mr. Harrison, the republican candidate for President, in his speech to the committee who conveyed to him...

il ALEXANDRIA. SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 7._ A fkw days before the Chicago conven tlon Mr. Ingall? wrote a letter in which he said Mr. Harrison "bad an awkward record on the tariff, the currency, the Chinese question, etc." Mr. Ingalls wbi much nearer the tiuth when he wrote that letter than he was when he was giving his testimony to an investigating committee of the U. S. 8enate re?pectiog the bribery by means of which he obtained his first election to a seat In the Senate. But,nevertheless, Mr. Harrison will receive the full vote of his party. Men's votes nowadays are not influenced by the political record, or even by the personal character of t hese who want them. For? tunately for the country, it was not so in the earlier and better days of the republic. It now looks as if the widely-heralded anticipated extensive lockout in the Penn? sylvania iron industry was only one of the numerous means the protected iron manu? facturers of that State have resorted to in order to stay the acti...

The Committee on Foreign Missions sub? mitted a report on co-operation with other churches. Dr. Murkland said that the great end of the church was to save the world. It wa8 for this that Christ died. Their mental eyes were opened beyond the horizon of their own kindred. All Christian churc'ru^ should work together to briDg the kingdom of Christ henceforth in the world into one church, doing God's will. Opponents of the church declared that the spiritual power was effete. The church's au-wer was ihat missionary work was carrying God's war from pole to pole. Prof, ilaciaren, of Toronto, ^poke on the subject of encouraging native churches to assume an independent position. Church life was analagous to family life.
