j ALEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 18. Judging by the contents of another col? umn in to day's Gazsttk, Postmaster Gen? eral Vilas is as sectional as any republican in bia State can be, though be lacks the can? dor with which ultra-republicans usually express their feelings, and the boldness with which they avow their actions. How must the ex-Confederates who prayed and work? ed for the election of an unsectional admin? istration, and wbese labor secured it the vote of every Southern State, feel when they realiza that all of them over thirty-five years of age are excluded from the postal service, and all over forty-five from any other federal service subject to the civil ser? vice law, and that even those few who have obtained places in the Po?totfice Depart? ment under republican administrations, can not now, under a rule of that Department, be promoted ? Will it be in accordance with the natural instincts of humau nature for them to work as hard for the success of the national de...

saturday EVENING, MARCH 10. Thk Governor says "the fact that rich people are permitted to pay their taxes h ith coupons at half price, whilo poor peo? ple arc compelled to pay theirs in oash, is a grievance of which the latter have just o tuee t f complaint." And ho it is. But the legislature has it in its easy power to re? move that cause of complaint, by a compro? mise with the'State's creditors, by which all the outstanding coupona and, the principal of the debt may be funded in long bonds, at a low rale of interest, so that the coupons be? ing thus absorbed, all taxpayers will be compelled to j ay their tax bills with cash. Ruch a settlement will be satisfactory to the creditors* and honorable to the State. But "the members of the legislature "can't Bee it." They seem to have gone c'.eao daft on the debt question.

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, MABCH 21. Consistency is not a quality of gushers, and a gusher is U3ually insincere, gushiDg only for present or prospective selfish ends. What reliance can be placed upon a per se secessionist, who now tells General Sher min that "his march through Georgia was harsh, but that he is glad he made it" ? And how can reaeonable people believe in the sincerity of Mr. Grady's thankfulness to the North for whipping the South, when he spoke of the appearance of Mr. Davis at Atlanta a year or two ago, as "the greatest day since the resurrection of the Saviour"? <>,? of that of Mr. John Wise, who says he "never thought the tlag he fought against was any body's but his own "? The democratic members of the legisla? ture should havo printed and pasted in their bats, and look at them every day dur? ing their consideration of the State debt question, the following famous words of Rev. Dr. H?ge, the eloquent preacher of Richmond: "What is morally wrong can? not be...

MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 21. Ireland Compared to the Saviour. Ri?hr-vi Keane, of Richmond, preached a magnificent sermon yesterday morning in the Irish Franciscan Church of St. Isidore, Rome, on the subject of St. Patrick and the Irish nation, comparing the early glories of Christian Ireland to the transfigu? ration of Christ on the mount and his alter persecution and suffering on the journey to Calvary. He drew a powerful picture of Ireland's condition as the ligbt and teacher of the nations of Europe, bur children ! reaching even to the gates of Rome iutif. He described the destruction of Ireland's church, the closing.of her schools, the op? pression of her people. From this treading ofthe wine press uncounted blessings were to flow to tbe world. Once the instructress <>f nations, Ireland was now beid np to the scorn and mockery as foolish and ignorant. As Christ was despised aud the most abject of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with infirmity, so was Ireland. God per? mi...

.iM %f Ar,~EXA.isrr>BiA. TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 22._ A correspondent of the Richmond Whig writing from Lynchburg say3 : "Your correspondent canvassed the views of some fifteen of our leading and most thinking people Saturday, and was really surprised to find so many of them of the opiniou that the meeting of the Legislature wa3 a misfortune, and that the mode of action on the debt question suggested in the Governor's message unwise, and not calcu? lated to meet the emergency or produce any satisfactory result." The Petersburg Index-Appeal says : "Our fean as to the inundation of the ex? tra session of iho Legislature by private bills have been realized. Already more than two hundred private and local bills have been introduced by small-iry statesmen eager for re-election."' The Lynchburg Advance says : "There are already more than 200 new bills before the Legislature, which has only been in session five days.

Jill* ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING. MARCH 23. It 13 only natural that every right think? ing man in the country 6bould take great interest ig i.r health of the President. There!- r. h> recently published opiniou of a W<>?r<ii uto physician, to the effect that the Presi? cut's tuilure to take requisite ex ercise ha* already affected his health, and renders hitn liable to the many diseases in cident to such failure, is a matter of general comment. There is no doubt that what the physician referred to says is Due, and that the President has already acquired the ap pearance of men long in confinement. The President should be more careful of his health tbau any other man in the country, and why be doesn't take even the ordinary care of it that other men do of theirs is pass? ing strange. Of all kinds of exerciso, physi? cians agree that walking is the best, the easiest and the most agreeable, especially to men of full habit, like the President; but Mr. Cleveland Bedulously a...
