A CHOICE Of EVILS. * Shall we submit to the Wells-Under-wood constitution with all its horrors or shall we try to get back Into the Union udder the Alexandria Constitution, with Its blessihgs' of universal amines* ty and universal suffrage ? Tills question has been so violently mooted during tbe holidays as to threaten a serious division In the white man's party. At a choice of evils, the people would doubtless prefer the Alexandria Constitution. But no choice will be given them. So, at least, Senator Pomkrot says in a letter to the editor of the Norfolk Virginian. The mistake made by •'Senex" and "-Senior ' was a fatal one. In place of a discussion lv the public irlnts, a quiet visit to Gen. Grant in Vashlngton—the Radical leader* being entirely ignored—would have given us the right clue and eventuated happily. Hon. A. 11. H. Stuabt and other prominent Virginians called on Gen. Stonbmak on New Year's day. The meeting of so many distinguished men was not accidental, nor was their vi...

»llr_-*>_——__—_—_—_—_—__■—__— ___—■**■"■ "The House in Baltour Street" is a bold attempt of an American writer to produce a novel of English life. How far the attempt is succeisslul, our ignorance ol society in England prevents us from determining. The plot, though not intricate or involved, is exciting; the incidcuts flow naturally, the style is unaffected and at times vigorous ; tliere is enough of mystery and gloom to arouse the liveliest interest, and the principal character is drawn with bold and salient strokes. Nor is humor wanting—witness the Gorgeous Victim and the Stately Martyr, and the diverting testimony of Creech before the coroner's jury.

A conversation wiih the Richmond committee iLakit tqui.e clear that they have no hope ot the present Congress doing anything for the relief of Virginia. Only a few days ago this committee was hopeful—now tliey are despondent. General Schotield assured them to day that there would be no hope until after General Grant Is inaugurated. J. S. Barbour, and several other distingulslied Virginians arrived to-day to add their influence, but since their arrival, they, too, have become satisfied that it is hoping against hope to anticipate such action at the liands of the present Congress, as would ter.d to relieve the embarrassment or restore the prosperity ot the old Commonwealth.
