ALclXANDTUA. SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL 1C. It seems to bc< conceded that Mr. Carlisle will be re-elected Speaker of the ?ext U. S. House of Representatives. Ho lias beeu honest, capable, efficient and fair, as the presiding cfiicer of tho House, and as he is a good democrat, and as tho democrat? have a majority in tho Hcu.se, he deserves to be re elected, and doubtless will bp. But it should be- understood beforehand that the democratic majority in the House was elected because of its democratic principles, and that a low taritl is one of the cardinal principles of democracy, and that as a dem? ocratic IIouso can not bo ran on democratic principles with prominent protectionists in charge, of its leading committees, Mr. Ran? dall must uot be put at the head of its next appropriations committee. the recent probably fatal attempt to murder a member of the Illiur/is legislature, was the result, it is asserted by Chicago newspapers, of a deliberately planned Scheme, of a regularly organ...

# m ?fe ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. APRIL is. Mb. Barbouu's statement to the effect that the administration is becoming more democratic and less mngwumpy in it? gen? eral policy, and that it now evinces a dis? position to consult nnd put il-elf in accord with the democratic leaders, is sup plemented l>y the fact that the President has of late been turning out republicans and ap? pointing democrats at an increased rate. Nothing could homoresati-faetory to his par? ty than this change. If tho President shall persist in this change.and shall strike tho age limitation, by which all ex-Confelerates are excluded from thecivilserv!ce,outof the civil service rules, as he has aright to do, and shall make Mr. Vila? abolish the rule that prohibits tho promotion of ex-Confederates in the Postoffice Department, much of the existing disaffection in his party will be dissipated._ It seems that General Mahone has learned nothing by defeat, and that with all the re? cent experience of routed boss...

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING. APRIL20. The merk fact that the republicans are rejoicing at the political union of working men should be sufficient to induce the latter to pause and consider well what they are doing. The democratic party, from its ori? gin down to the present time, has been the workingmau'd patty ; it3 whole effective strength has been derived from working men, and its inspiring motive has been the maintenance and defense of the poorsgaiDst the assumption; and encroachments of the rich. It was the democratic party that removed the property qualification from vot? ers ia Virginia, and it is the same party that is now striving to remove the same qualification from the foreign born white citizens of Rhode Island. As the democrat? ic party is composed of workingmen, a new laborers' party would of necessity have to draw its strength from that party, and with the democratic putty thus divided, the re publican party, the party to which the Goulds and :ho other mouopolisls ...

All the noted medicine men have been employed from time to time to treat him. At present the great men of San Car? los are attending him. Some of them began a low chanting song at nightfall, breaking out now and then into a wild, weird refrain. This they kept up all night while the chief medicine man put in the night blowing smoke over the sick man and, cutting long gashes with a sharp knife, pretends to draw worms therefrom. Night before last t?ey concluded that their patient was be? witched by a r?ixteen-year-old squaw named Calue and determined on her death.

(Mil- r ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. APRIL 21. The republicans, in their glee at the strength the labor party is drawing away from the democratic party, say the former party will vote with them, because they fa vor a high tariff, which enhances the price of labor. Because the words and acts of some of the leaders of the labor party ehow that those leaders are ill infoimed and ig? norant, is no proof that all laborers are; but the republicans evidently believe they are from the manner in which they treat tbem. Nothing is more patent to any man of com? mon understanding than the fact that the demand for labor is what affects its price, and that the tariff" does not atfect that price. Labor in this country is cheapest in the most protected industries, and dearest in those that are not protected; and it is dearer in the West than in the East, because the demand for it is greater in the former; and iu the East, for the same reason, it is twenty per cent, dearer in the carpet facto? ries...
