STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: ■ - ——, TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 14, 1865. W. J. COWING, Editor. Abuse of Jefferson Davis It has often happened, in the history ot the world, that malcontents who have selected an idol, and for months worshipped at its shrine, have afterwards turned and destroyed the object of their former solicitude. The Israelites adored and worshipped their golden calf as a being of divine attributes, and afterwards fell on the luckless representative of infant cowdom with great fury—a fury proportionate to their former extravagant admiration —and used up the luckless image tooth and toe nail. In doing so, it is the generally received opinion that they acted by divine command. Now four or five years since, the people of the United States residing in the southern portion thereof, actuated by the same wicked impulses that moved the Israelites in their crusade against their constituted authorities, built, erected and set up for themselves a golden calf, before whom they fell...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: THURSDAY EVE’G, MARCH 16, 1865. W. J. V0W1NG,.,,., Editor Mistaken Notions. Under this heading the Philadelphia North American has some remarks on a note of Gen. Scott, in which he declines, on account of debility, to take part in the recent New York proceesion. In it the old veteran remarks that whilst the opposing veterans in our civil war respect and admire each other, the civilian secessionists and Unionists regard each other with a “miserable hate.” Thisremark the North American thinks founded on error. It says: “Those poor white men, who chiefly fill the rebel armies, and who have been taught by the slaveocrats who led them to believe that all northern men were cowards, have been disbused of that erroneous idea on many fields of stern encounter. And it may be laid, on the other hand, that our loyal soldiers have found in those sturdy warriors who fight in the ranks of rebellion “foeman worthy of their steel’ Braver men than those illiterate, ill-clad...

STATE JOURNAL, ALEXANDRIA: FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 17, 1860. W ,3. COWING, . Editor. The Want of Pood in the South The rebels do not put too much stress upon the note of alarm they are compelled to sound in relation to the question of food. Recent movements of our energetic generals have so cut up lines of communication, that the subsistence of Lee’s army has bee-tone greatly jeopardized. Gov. Vance, of North Carolina, has mads the semi-starving condition ot the rebel army before Richmond the text of recent characteristic proclamation, while the Richmond Whig says, if relief is not soon afforded, “all is lost.” The plan of relying on patriotic contributions is a very unsafe one.— The rebels have tried it already so often during the present war that it hag lost its saving efficacy. Lee’s army is cut off now from all hope of supply, save from parts of North wurolina and Virginia, and in these latter the people are straightened for food themselves.— As things now stand, we do not doubt b...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 18, 1865, W. J. COWING, Ifidltor. Engineers Hoisted by their Own Petards, This well known old saying has received, during this war, many a pregnant and suggestive illustration. Never was it better illustrated than by the former and ptesent condition of the fire-eaters, who undertook the overthrow of the Anerican Union Everyone Bfthe inventions designed to aid the purpose in view, and upon which so many years of preparation were expended, have not onlyproved the merest abortions, so far as the business for which they were designed was concerned, but have exploded in the hands of the contrivers with terribly fatal effect- The great political “Cotton is King’’ bombshell, which was to irresistibly screw down England and France upoif the United States'and flatten the republic into a pancake between them — that machine burst upon the first turn of the screw, and floored the Confederacy at the very outset. Then there was the tremendous con...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 20, 1865 W. a. COWING, ....Editor. Afifairs in North Carolina The ever victorious Sherman seems to be, like the body of Old John Brown, “still marching on.” Where he will stop the rebels will doubtless find out to their cost ere long His marching has all been done unmolested, despite the fine-spun theories of Copperheads and rebels about the perils encompassing him in North Carolina, and the imaginary strategy of Les and Johtiston, which was to bring him to grief. Thus the plans of Grant and Sherman progress steadily and irreslstable to completion. Their plans have for their object the closing of all the avenues leading to Richmond, which will, in the end, make that finely fortified city fall into our hands like a ripe peach. Sherman has not encountered any opposition since he left Savannah. The rebels, like judicidus and sensible people, have given away, or rather run away, whenever he appeared in their front. Sherman is now at Fayet...
