AlVEXAI^IPRIA.. TUESDAY EVENING, MAECII 8. Thk Canadian minister of customs, in speaking ul>out the bill recently passed by Congress for retaliating lipon Canuda for the seizure of New England fishing smacks, which nhe had a right to do under the law < f nations, says "it's a game two can play at ." But the American Solons who passed tha bill referred to never conceived such an idea as that until after their work was done. The real object of the bill was to exclude Canadian fish in order to increase tho price of New England, fish at the expense of the consumers of this country. But as the ex? po: ts of this country to Canada are tenfold thosj of Canuda to this country.it can read? ily be seen, th-it 90 far as commercial retali? ation is concerned, Canada has the United States at disadvantage. A bill has been introduced in the Mich? igan legislature to divest the bishops of the Catholic Church of the title to all church properly, and to place that propeity iu th...

TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH ^. Dangerous Powers. The S ate Arbitration Jaw was imperti? nent and oflensive as it stood before the Legislature commenced amending it. If it i- changed after the fashion proposed by its friends at Albany it will become ao instru? ment of oppression almost without puralls^ should its enforcement fall into the hands of demagogues or unscrupulous persons. The. voluntary feature is still nominally retained. That is, employers and employed differing as to wages or "hours and conditions of work may do as they please abou: submitting their controversies to the arbitrators. Il is only when they have drawn up their case pro and con, and invited the decision of the Board, that tbey become bound to abide by the verdict. The dangerous powers which the arbitrators now desire would reach out ; iu another direction. They want to be | clothed with mediatorial attributes, 80 Lbar they may take initial steps uninvited for tbe settlement of such disputes. This looks innocent e...

ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, MAECn 10. TnKRK exists a popular delusion, which no amount of reiterated explanation and proof soems possible to dissipate, aud which affects ?oine otherwise very intelligent peo? ple, to tLe effect that tho President, in the execution of hid undemocratic, nay, even un-American civil service policy, is bound by both the civil service law and by the platform of the national democratic conven? tion upon which he was nominated. Noth? ing could be more erroneous than this idea. In all the civil service law there is not a single word, cr any context, which, by the most strained construction, can be made to warrant the age restriction imposed by the President upon applicants for admistiou in? to the civil tervice. But the law, aud this the President has tvideutly lost sight of, does make it a misdemeanor to "obstruct" any person in respect of the right to be ex amined. The only reference* to civil service in i he plat I'm m upon which the Piesiiicnt wus nomin...
