m IM ? .k* ATJ^XANDKIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 1. So SNAMOBED has the National Republi? can of Washington become of Virginia, and particularly of Alexandria, that it wants the latter-county and city?re-annexed to the District of Columbia. As the government ha3 already taken one-third of Virginia's territory without compensation, it is hardly possible it will be robber enough to take any more on the same terms ; and as it will not pay for any more, the Republican is wast? ing time in the vain effort to gratify ita re ferred to de.->ire. More possible achieve? ments would be a bridgo at Arlington and an ice boat to keep the river open during the winter. To the attainment of these two objects the Republican should bend its efforts.

The event created no little talk io the neighborhood, and a crowd assem? bled at night under the widow of the bridal chamber and proceeded to salute the newly married pair with the beating of tin pans, tbe tooting of horns and other accompani? ments of a lirst class charivari.

ALl^XANDRIA. THI'ESDAY EVENING, MAY ?. As the contest the Virginia legislature is having with the U.S. Supreme Court on the BUbject of the State debt, does not seem to require all its energies, it is now consider ing the advisability of entering upon a new oue with that court, on the subject of the drummers' tax. The U. S. Supreme Court has decided that the tender of a Virginia coupon is a legal payment of any debt due Virginia; it has also decided that Virginia can not tax drummers from other States. A decision of the I*. S. Supreme Court is the supreme law of the land. But the Virginia legislature says Virginia coupons shall nol b ? received for Virginia taxes; aud it is now considering a proposition to lax drummers. Moat reasonable people think the time for a State to opposo the mandates of the U. S. Supreme Court expired tit Appomatlox twenty two years ago.

A I KXANDRIA. SATCKday EVENING. MAY 7. It is hoped the proposition now before the legislature to amend the State constitu? tion so as to provide for reducing the num? ber c f separate elections), may be adopted b. fo e the adjournment of that body. Hard |y has the excitement of one election, under the existing election provision of the con? stitution, subr-ided, before that of another couimenct8, and as the people of Virginia are born politician3, the constant exercise of their uatural bent leaves tbem but little j time for more profitable employment. More elections should be held at one time, so as to lessen the number of election days. The consequent increased facilities for swapping votes would be more than compensated for by the numerous benefits that would neces? sarily result from the proposed change. The election law also should be amended so es to provide that each candidate ^hall be voted for on a separate ticket, and that the tickets for each office shall bo deposited in a...

SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 7 Fairfax County Roads. Tu the editor of the Washington Post: During my first visit to Fairfax county, Va., recently, with a frieud who has pur? chased a farm there, I was struck with the beauty of the country, its abundant, luxu? riant forests, its charming runnine stream-, its delicious springe and its lovely land? scapes. Its soil, too, though greatly worn out by unwise and excessive culture, ex? hibits its natural fertility, for its harvests are abundant in all places where ferlilizera have been applied. But, Mr. Editor, I for bear making any investment, to which I am much inclined, by reason of one fact?the roads in the county are the worst I have ever travelled over in any of the twenty live States I nave visited. Take the road from Burke's Btation to Occoquan?for miles you will encounter stumps and rocks, and at times, perhaps, enter an unseen quick? sand.

Some of the moat pronounced protection? ists in. as well aa out of, Congress, are in fa vor of removing all restrictions upon trade between this country and Canada, saying, what everybody kno\v3 is true, that under such a condition the trade between the two countries would be greatly increased, to the advantage of both, and would approximate in proportion that between the North and the South. But, in saying this;, they, in po? lice parlance, "give themselves away,"'for if free trade with one country would he ad? vantageous to the United States, why would it not be so with another, or with several others?
