. ! M %m \*% 1 M , ... fife ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. APRIL -Js. SECRETARY Lamar made one mi.stuke in bid address at Charleston last Tuesday that was not observable in the first telegraphic synopsis of it that was printed. That mis? take takes him out of the list of the true representative men of his party. He said "he was associated with one against whose adminia!ration the only criticism which has been pronounced is hia sacred retard fcr promises." The chief ground for the elec? tion of .Mr. Cleveland, and the one endorsed by himself, was that all the departments of the government were honey combed with fraud and corruption, and that, be would "turn the rascals out." Hi* subsequent course shows that his endorsement of that idea was a false pretense, or else that he has not fultilled his promise respecting it. He certainly made no promise, that any body ever heard of, to keep tie depaitmenls at Washington filled with the men whoso asserted corruption mado a majority of the peop...

Herbetie, the French einbassador, absolute evidence that Schnaebeles had long been actively en? gaged in inciting conspiracy, and acting aa a spy in Alsace, and proof that he was ar? rested on German territory, it is reported in official circles that, lo conciliate France, Germany will offer to release Schnaebeles on condition that he oe removed from the frontier post, it is belived that the German government will take into consideration the circumstance alleged by France that M. Schnaebeles was officially invited across the frontier just before his ar? rest. The majority of Freuch news? papers suspect that Prince Bismarck has caused delay in the settlement of the Schnaebeles affair in the hope of impelling the French people to committing some act of folly, and they urge no abatement of the calmnesa which the...

FRIDAY EVENING. APRIL 29. Is Bennett Tired of the "Herald"?? Iq conversation with a representative ol the New York Graphic the other day, Editor Heury Watterson related a little story about James Gordou Bennett that will be read with deep interest because of its unexpecJ ed character and undoubted anthenlicity. Mr. Watterson and Mr. Bennett were voy? agers on the same steamer when the Keu tuckian made his last trip to Europe. They were the only cabin passengers who did not s??er from seasickness, and by virtue of this fact as well as by their identity of profession the two editors became quite intimate and exchanged mauy confidences. When they spoke of the reputed fascination of the news? paper business, Mr. Bennett said that the phrase had a good; deal of fiction in it as applied to him. He did not, by any means, feel so bound up in the Herald as most per sons might suppose. In fact, he had wearied of the responsibility some time ago and would rather be free to see the world accord...

Not only have the protective tariff and the navigation laws utterly destroyed the foreign shipping trade of tho country, but they am rapidly effecting a similar disas? trous ending to the const trade, the number of sea-going vessels having fallen oil'from 5i)7 in 1S70 to "''>9 in 1SS6.

After exciting considerable sympathy, she uow tells another story, from which it seems that she had been romancing when she told the story about being led away by a stran? ger, who afterward threw her in the water. She says that she had voluntarily gone with au elderly man whom she had met before to a restaurant in Third avenue. APer eat? ing some oysters, which they washed down with beer, they went together to a house near Twenty-third street. Aiferward she went down to the dock to wet her clotbe3, so that she might have an excuse to ofl'er her father for having been out at night. When she got in the water she could not get up again.

AX KXxlNDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, MAY 2. Cardinal Manning, whose intluence was joined with that of Cardinal Gibbons to induce tbe Pope to recogniza the knights of labor, and who is known throughout the intelligent world a* the defender of the poor ani the fiiend of organized labor, warns tbe knights sgainst that abuse of tho liberty of association which consists in denying tbe right to labor to those who are outside of their associa'ion. Such a denial, he says, is not only an abuse, hut suicide, for the right to labor lies at the root of the right of association. If you strike at the one, you fell with the same stroke every? thing that 1ms sprung up from it. 'The law,'' concludes the Cardinal, "in recogniz? ing l?jth, protects both. They exist whet; each respects the other. When they clash, they ceuse to be.'" The. truth of these words must be plain to every sensible man, whether be be a member of a labor organi? zation or not.
