ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 1. The rvport made by the labor commit? tee appointed to watch the proceedings of the New York legislature, to the central labor union of that State expresses complete satisfaction with the action of the demo? cratic minority in that body, but declares that the republican majority in every in? stance either ignored or opposed the inter? ests of the workingmen. How could it be otherwise? There is nothing truer than the assertion that in representative countries representatives correctly represent their con etituentp. The democratic party alwaye was, is now, and always must be, composed of workingmen; Us policy and principles are for the good of the many instead of for that of the few; it is for equal opportunity to all and for special favors to none. In each and every one of these respects the difference be? tween it and the republican party is as marked as that between night and day. AH this baing so, it was only natural that the democrats in th...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 1. August is'one of the best months of the year for studying the stars, for the dreamy atmosphere inclines to meditation and it vites the companionship of the twinkling mysterie? that stud the heavens.

-s -- .. . ~~-&a. W %S "ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 2. The republican protectionists, iD and out of season, reiterate their favorite, but ut? terly groundless assertion, that low tariff in this country obtains much of its support from Eogland, and is, in fact, a British measure, and the legitimate offspring of the Cobdeo Club, which supplies the money by which its cause is maintained. To show the utter absurdity of such an assertion it is only necessary to say that Mr. Gladstone made a speech a year or two ago iD which he said : "I will say this, that as long as America adheres to the protective system your com? mercial primacy is secure. Nothing in the world can wrest it from you while America continue* to letter her own strong hands and arms, and with these fettered arms is content to compete with you, who are free, in neutral markets. And as long as Ameri? ca follows the doctrines now known as those of fair trade, you are petft?ctly safe, and you need not allow, auy ...

ALEXANDRIA. friday evening. AUGUST 3. _ Senator Blair has the reputation even among bis republican colleagues of being a crank. It is a pathological fact that sudden and imoceliate inconsistencies in a man's views as well as conduct are symptoms of a disordered brain. Mr. Blair's ears are now so sensitively attuned to tbe music of the loyal l uion that they cannot bear the sound of tbe word Confederate. And yet a short time ago he was so in love with wounded ex Confederates that he wanted to prefer them for federal office to all other men in tho South. Then, too. Mr. Blair, though heretofore among the mildest mannered men in the Senate,now fays he is willing to resort to the cide, not to defend his honor, but sim? ply to show that a Northern man will "fight a duel." Mr. Blair must be in a bad way. Of the many charges tbe republicans bring againBt Mr. Tburman they make the most ado about tbe one that he strongly op? posed the constitutional amendment con? ferring tho privilege of suf...

i ?S* A-Ll?XAJSrPRIA.. 8AT?RDAY EVENING, AUGUST 4._ Gcilk?bd Miller ie a man who settled on land granted the Northern Pacific Rail? road. The railroad company wished to oust him. His case was referred to Attorney General Garland, who decided that, under the law, Miller would have to go. This de? cision involved that of many similar cas63, and naturally was very unpopular among the large class of people injuriously affected by It. The President referred The case to the Interior Department to sse if something could not be done for the Bufferers. Mr. l.amar, then Secretary of that department, apparently recognizing the true legal otatus of the case, but not wanting to take ground against the wishes of the President, failed to act, but being succeeded by Mr. Yilas, the latter, tnoro desirous of pleasing the Presi? dent than of sustaining the law, has reversed the Attorney General's decision, and the case will probably go to the U.

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST g._ If people would apply their oomruoD sense to all, a& well as to 30tne things, their own interests wouid be qubserved the bet? ter. This ia an essentially selfish world, and men's actions are inspired by what they, at least, believe will redound to their own advantage. This being so, wby is not the fact that all the employers ia the protected industries are stannch supporters of the pro? tective tariff sufficient, of itself alone, to snake it plain that, whether so or not, they think protection is for their benefit, and, by the law of equatbn, for the detriment of other- ? Human nature is the same in poor aa iu rich men. Who ever heard of employ eea subsciibing an immense sum for the ben? efit of their employers?

MONDAY EVENING. AUGUST 6.

Several members of Congress have been interviewed on the subject, but they do not 3een to take a very deep ioterest in the matter, for the reason, as they claim, that the colored people now in the United States prefer to remain here rather 'ban emigrate to Africa or any oiher foreigu country. A member of theSentite. who was supposed to be familiar with the operations of this company, when questioned on the subject, said that, according to his under? standing of the situation, the steamship company has its existence simply on paper, and it proposes that the government ahull provide the means for the construction of one or more steamships, to be used exclu? sively for transporting to the Congo country euch members of ...
