AT^XANDRIA. FBI DAY EVENING. JANUARY 7. TflEREPORT of the President of the Chesa? peake aud Ohio Canal company shows plainly euough that unless the State of Jla ryland or the United States, or both, shnil come at ouee to the aid of that canal it must he abandoned, ami the millions of dollars expended in its construction be lost forever. But the loss of the money would not he the worst effect of its abandonment. The canal is the oniy competitor with tho railroads for the transportation of coal from the Cum? berland region to tide water, aud with its competition removed the railroads would have the same control over the soft coal trade that they now have over that of hard coal. The proper thing to do in the prem? ises would be for the Government to aid the canal, as it has the railroads, with the loan of enough money to extend it to the Ohio river, thus carrying out the idea of General Washington and its other founders, and creating it water way faun the West to the national capital, ...

FEI DAY EVENING, JANUARY 7. Dynamiters at Work?At a late hour Wednesday night the residents in the vicin? ity of Ninth and Harrison streets, San Fre*: cisco, were startied by a terrific explosioc. Most of them had retired, aud being awak? ened from their sleep they ran out into the street !n their night clothing. The first im? pression created was that an earthquake bad shaken down some buildings in the neighborhood, but an investigation disclosed the fact that a dynamite cartridge had been placed in the cable slot on the Larkin street branch of the Sutler street railroad and ex ploded. The basalt rocks in either side < *' the slot were found to be loosened and the masonry work badly ^battered. The pul? leys upon which the" cable runs were also broken aud the foundation of the tunnel cracked. Window panes in the vicinity were rattled violently at the time of the explosion.

ALEXANDRIA. SATURDAY EVENING. JANUARY 8 Major W. T. Sutherlin, of Danville, "a man of affairs," not a politician, a practical, long headed Virginian, says, in respect of the State debt: "If the legislature is to meet for the purpose of passing further obstructive measures to enforce the proposed settlement, it is far better for it not to assemble, for meeting will only tend to further complications and loss to the State and her people. Such leg inlation may hinder and delay, but never can accomplish a final settlement of the question. I admire the patriotism of our people in turning their backs upon the cou? pon venders and paying their taxes in mon? ey. I alno admire the courage and plack of our officers in their manly effort to execute the laws of the State, even at the risk of pecuniary loss and personal saciificc. But ev*u with all this, is it not better for U9 to stop this hopeless contest with the I". S. Court, settle the debt and let Virginia fall into line aud lead the van o...

He is a good penman and an ingenious swindler. In New York hotels ho searched the files of Western papers and noted all the advertise mentshe found of men advertising for wives.

k>? : -fr $r H .7 ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVEKING. JANUARY 12. Gen. Walker who, as heretofore an? nounced ia the Gazette, has left the dem? ocratic party, says a "protective taritl' is what Virginia needs." But Virginia has had a protective tariff ever since tho close of the war, and yet her farmers, the vast majority of hor people, say they find it hard? er to make both ends meet now than ever before. Tho General is entirely wrong. What Virginia needs is a revenue tariff. As it is now, Virginia farmers have to sell in the cheapest and buy in the dearest market, have to pay a tax on every thing they buy, while nobody has to pay a lax on what the farmers sell; and bssides, have the foreign market for their products restricted by rea son of measures adopted by foreign govern? ments iu retaliation for the tux imposed by this government upon foreign products. Thou, too, tho General should know that owing to the natural disadvantages of the North for manufacturing purpose*, tho ...
