sat IRDAY evening, april 23. For the direct benefit ofthe northern part, and the indirect benefit of the whole, of the State, it in hoped the legislature, as floor, after it snail reassemble a? practicable, will pat* the Mineral Railroad bill. The pas.'ago of that bill would soon restore to Alexandria, not only all tho immense coal trade she once bad, but a great deal more, and would make her the rival ofthe largest coal ship? ping ports on the Atlantic coast. Now that the coal trade of the C. & 0. |Caual has been almost ;usj;ended by reason 'of the tolls on that canal, the sofc coal trade of nearly the whole of this section of the country has been monopolized by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The proposed new road would break up that monopoly, and effect all the benefits necessarily attending full and free competition. The road would be a short one,'connecting the coal'fields of West YirgiuiaVith Strasburg, from which point there is a .-.traighr Hue of road already running to...

AL i;XANDRIA. TUESDAY evening. april 20. General Mahone's Washington organ, the Republican, says : ' A young man coming from one of our 'fir : families1 in Alexandria said the other day, when asked about the Arrow Steamship Company's location there: 'Ob, the beet p jople don't want such things ; it will bring several hundred dirty mechanics to the city, and we dont't like that." And yet the Republican pretends to have the welfare of Virginia at heart, and to be actuated in all it says about tho State by a desire to induc3 men and money to avail themselves of the attractions 9he offers to both. Now a man with sense enough to write the quoted paragraph must know that no body except a born simpleton would have uttered such foolish word9 as those referred to, and that consequently they were not worth repeating, except for the deliberate purpose of injuring, to the extent of bis power, the city whose interests he professes to subserve.
