f ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, MASCH 24. The New York Sun says: "We are bound to say that within a few day- one of the wisest, most experienced, most important and most impartial of dem ocratic politicians, in no way associated or connected with TammaDy Hall or with the Sun, expressed to us the opiuion that if Mr. Cleveland should be the next democratic candidate, history has not recorded a defeat in a Presidential canvass equal to that which would await hira." Such seems to bo the opinion of most of the wis9 and disinterested democrats of the country, South as well as North. But at the same time, all of those who do bold this opinion, hope and believe that the next Da? tional democratic convention will avoid de? feat by nominating a reliable, true blue democrat, who can unite and concentrate upon himself the support of every democrat in the country.

MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 28._* Thk fact that only three republican members of the Virginia House of Delegates voted lor the creation of a commissiou to mee: a similar commission, to be appointed by the creditors, and confer on the subject of the soltietnciU of the State debt, proves that w;iat Mr. Kiddleberger, of the U. .S.
