ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, JULY 9. "Tho recent absorption of the EepMican by tho Post has left the Republicans without an organ here. The democrats are also without a straight out newspaper devoted to their cause, and it is not improbable that tho Alexandria Gazette published six miles below here, will shortly begin the issue of a Washington edition." So says the Washington correspondent of the New York Star in that paper to day's date. There is no doubt of fact a true blue democratic daily is needed, and that bidly, at the national capital; but the Gazette has so much to do to keep the democratic party ia Virginia up to the line, and prevent it from s'rawL'g into the republican fold on tho tariff, civil service reform, and some other matters, that it, now at least, has no time to devote to the improvement of the party in other sections of the country. Mk. Reed, the republican leader of the U. S. House of Representatives, judging by his article on "Democracy at St. Louis," iu this ...

WON OAT EVENING, JULY 9 SUICIDES.?On Saturday morning a woman heavily veiled and alone hired a boatman in Portsmouth to go to Norfolk, and when about half across the harbor the woman stood up in the stern of tho boat, and, saying "Good-night'* to the boat? man, leaped overboard and sank immediately. Tho body was found yesterday afternoon. It proved to be the body of Cora Cherry, a mulatto. Several hundred negro men and women gathered on the dock, when one of tho throng, a young girl named Sarah Moore, walked out to the end of the pier, and taking o?' her apron and hat, threw them aside, and with a shriek jumped overboard and was drowned in tho presence of the hundreds on the wharf.

T?ES'-AY EVENING JULY 10._ Kisses.?In the old days, when powder and rouge were indispensable, a gallant gen? tleman kissed the hand of his fair lady. And her baDd was kept immaculate, that this kiss might mean much to him. Nowa? days men don't stoop to kiss your hand ; it would get their trousers out of shape. So a clean face becomes a necessity to a womao who has any liking for that expression oi affection which is generally approved of and seldom well done. The only kiss worth having, says a writer on the subject, is that oi a nice baby, and if the baby doesn't give it, it only submits to it. and keeps its sweet, dainty, perfumy littie mouth shaped like Bn O. as it waits for you to discover just how delinhtful it is. Men'* ki.-^esare like Scotch Whisky?they are apt to be emoky. Child ren's kisses are inclined to cover one's en tire face ; but a baby simply exi-ts and let* you take a mouthful of the breath of Arahy. Men have an idea that their kisses areap predated? they are most i...

ALEXANDKIA. wednesday evening. july 11. Nothing is more common than to have people who don't know what they are talk ing about say the South is in a better atd more prosperous condition now than she was before the war. That such is not the case is sadly realized by every Southern man old enough to remember the easy and happy condition of bis own immediate neighborhood previous to the war, and wise enough t) compare it with that which exists now. Ag'aring instance of the error re? ferred to was developed in the debate on the tatiffin the U. S. House of Representa? tives a day or two ago, when it was shown that whereas in 18?S the Louisiana sugar crop amounted to 3G2 20G hogsheads, in lSSf it had dwindled to 145.9CS. That is a sam? ple of the material degeneration of the South. That morally her d<generation hat progressed at equal pace, is proved by hei prison statistics, but more strikingly by the action of Virginia with reference to her pub lie deb1. ____________ When Me....

ALEXANDRIA, THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 12._ An immigration convention is now in eession at the Natural Bridge. Settlers are wanted in Virginia, atd wanted badly, but ^at want does not imply that indiscrimi? nate immigration would be beneficial. All intelligent, reputable and industrious men will fit.d welcome and profitable homes in any part of Virginia, no matter from whence they come. But the immigration of other 6ort of people is not desirable. In all the etlorts that are in progress to induce settlers to come to Virginia special attention should he directed to the North and West, rather than to foreign countries, and to people who have some correct idea of the real spirit and intent of free institutions rather than to thess who are utterly ignorant of them, and who, in consequence of their ignorance, mistake license for liberty. Dr W. B. Richardson of England is one of the many who oppese the New York plan of substituting an electric shock for the gallows as a means of executing the...

Both parties are to blame lor this, but not in an equal degree. The democut?, having a working majority iu the House, should have exercised the power of that majority, and passed their bill early in the session, and left its subfeq tent fate in the hands of the republican Senate.
