Such a crowded house was never before seen in this city as the one which attended the Theatre last evening. Every seat, aisle, and available standing place was filled, and the entire building was crowded almost to suffocation. The play was the great moral drama of ‘‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,'' and it was presented in a manner which reflected the greatest credit upon those who produced it. Mrs. Leighton, as “Topsy,” won the universal applause of the audience, rendering throughout a most original character. Mr. Locke, as “Gumpton Cute,” was, as usual, a...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: ■ — WEDNESDAY EVEN’G, MARCH 8, 1860 W. J. 00W1NG,,,, laJUuor. Then and Sow, When Abraham Lincoln first entered on the duties of the office to which the suffrage of his fellow-citizens had elevated him four years ago, he found the country mantled with gloom, the people despondent, the army disaffected, the navy dispersed to distant seas, the Department reeking with disloyalty, the treasures of the Nation seized by the agents of treason, one third of the States of the Union in open and armed revolt against the Federal authority. He found the North paralyzed, Secessionism rampant in our principal cities, Northern arsenals working night and day forging arms for Rebels, the National Capital a hotbed of treason. He found the Government paralyzed, its arms stolen from it, its arsenals rifled, its custom-houses robbed, its forts seized, its revenue cutters turned into piratical crafts, traitoFs North and South confident, our enemies abroad exultant. Time it is sai...

The war has produced a complete revolution in regard to slavery. In the States where this institution existed before the rebellion, it was treason to say anything in opposition tout, or to circulate anything which detracted from it- divinity Helper’s*book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and many other free-soil books and periodicals were excluded from circulation in the South as effectually as, was the propagation of copperhead, rattle, and black snakes.

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: THUESDAY EVENING, MAECH 9, 1865 W. J. OOVVIJiCL realtor. Confederate Generals The reservoir from which the rebels drew their generals seems to have been exhausted long ago. Lee and Beauregard, Johnstonand Hardee, Kirby Smith, Hood, Longstreet, and A. P. Hill are either commanding, or advising in the command, of the same troops they did three years ago. They seem to be the only generals whom the rebels have deemed fit to command separate armies at any time, and, indeed, the occasions seem many when they coald not demonstrate their fitness for such positions. During the time a number of division and brigade commanders have appeared on the scene of action, and, by some isolated and fool-hardy achievement, have given promise of future usefulness in the cause of the rebellion. Many such characters have, after being placed under one or the other of the leaders above named, been removed by the casualties of war, or been sacrificed in vain attempts to retrieve the...

A revolution has been effected, and to-day the largest liberty of speech and of the press can be indulged in anywhere within the Federal lines. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” dramatised from an intense antislavery work, is now being produced at the King street theatre with the most unbounded success.

It is asserted, by correspondents with the Army of the Potomac, that nearly all of the regiments in the rebel army have voted on the question of peace or war, and that a large proportion were in favor of returning to the Union. In the Ist, 2d, sth, and 6th South Carolina regiments, and the 16th and 17th North Carolina troops, the greater portion were in favor of peace and Union. The Texas brigade, Geary’s cavalry, and some other organizations voted in the but the result was, as stated, against the rebellion. The officers, however, instead of publishing the expressed and known opinion of the men, drew up resolutions pledging the rank and file to an unwavering and protracted prosecution of the war until rebel independence should be< achieved. This action surprised no one so much as it did the majority of the regiments who voted just the reverse. When the ...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 11, 1865, W. J. COWING Editor. The Situation The recent capture of the three remaining sea-ports of the Confederacy gave us prestige, assisted the Treasury in negotiating loans, and stimulated recruiting. They were valuable captures, but valuable as they were, they were but simple incidents portending a crisis in the vast campaign initiated by Grant as soon as Hood’s fatal blunder in moving on Nashville developed itself. Military genius of the highest order is yet required to work out to a successful termination the strategic scheme of the Lieutenant-General, which had for its object the destruction of the rebel armies yet in the field. The rebels have left no stone unto remedy Hood’s blunder. Every available man has been drawn from the Southwest, and the remnants of Hood’s army long ago joined itself to the late garrisons of Savannah, Charleston and Wilmington. United they must constitute a considerable force. They will operate tog...

STATE JOURNAL '"iSSsllife’-'- ■*’ ALEXANDRIA: MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 13, 1865. W. J- OOWING, ....Bditor. The London Times on American Affairs. The London Times thinks there is to be no ending to the dismal chapter which records our civil war. We are to go on in a circle of blood and fire from which there is no escape. We are to go on tearing and stabbing each other in the “ghastly duel' 1 which it pictures, •till, however/ retaining our rigor and resources, yet chained to the w heel of Ixion, whose revolvings can never cease. As whatever the Times chooses to say, good or bad, is believed in implicitly by Englishmen, we suppose that a majority of the latter are firmlyconvinced that not only are these terrible things in progress at the present moment, but that they are fated by some magical incantation to endure beyond a generation The Times only need intimate such to be the case to make all the Queen 1 s subjects believe that | the whole wide area of the American Republic \ was the th...
