SATTi'tDAY EVENING, MARCH 12. lest thk national government make a democratic patty machine of the board of commissioners to be appointed under the interstate commerce bill ?of which no sane man has tho least ftar under tho present administration ? the republican legislature of Pennsylvania proposes to cieate a State railroad commission, to be used as a repub lican party machine to counteract the po? litical plans and schemes of the former. The railroads, in the meantime, to avoid the provisions of the interstate commerce bill agains! pooling,are combining and con? solidating, and by being less competitive, are becoming more monopolistic. With the republican party and the tailroad com? panies both antagonizing the interstate commerce bill, and with the money tho lat? ter have at their disposal, it is more than doubtful if the benefits that were ex peeled from that bill will ever be receiv? ed.

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. MARCH 14. Mr. PowDERDY once said be never allow? ed a glaes bottle to leave bis house except by way of a window. The bands in the glasa works at Tittsburg, have, as is only natural, gone a bow shot beyond Mr. Pow derly, und have declared a boycott upon ali who use bottles that have been used before. The object in both cases is to increase the demand for new bottles, and consequently for the lat or that makes Iheua. But in this, as in most other similar instances, the de s.'ue.i object, even if effected, would be at the expense of people who can ill all'ord to bear it. The small extra cost of a new bot? tle is nothing to a rich man, but it is vastly different to a poor woman whose last cent h being spent in tho purchase of inediciue she must carry home in that bottle for her sick child. THE BOOM Alexandria has got should be assisted' by every possible means the city l.aa at its disposal. Among the most el fective of such means are low laxes, and cheap gRs ...

ALKXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING. march 15. The called session of the legislature will assemble to-morrow. The democrats have a largo majority in the body and can do what they please, and will therefore be held accountable for its action.
