TUESDAY EVENING. MAY 10. Gsn. Lee wrote a letter, subsequent to the war in which he opposed the erectiou of mon? uments to commemorate either the men cr the deeds of that war. The advice he gave in that letter wa3 good, and the failure to adopt it has tesu the cause of the prolon? gation of much of the ill-feeling between the two sections of thecounlry. The latest in stance of the wisdom of the advice teferred to, and of the folly of rejecting it, is afforded by the case of the Pickett monument, which the ex-Confederates wished to erect at the point which Pickett'a division reached iu its gallant charge at Gettysburg, but permis eiontodo which has beeu refused by the Gettysburg Associatioo. It is only natural that the refusal should provoke resentment; and hate begets hate. The widow of General Pickett has had to beg for an office under the federal government, aud has to work hard for her support. The money spent on the costly monument to commemo? rate a gallant deed of the civil wa...

The Evening Express, of Portland, Mo , an influential and well-patronized republi? can paper in its State, Bays : "We all admit those qualities of courage, ski 1, fortitude and devotion displayed by the ruling class in the South in their eflbi tj to break up the American Union and to es? tablish on its ruins a republic whoso corner stone should be slavery. We may concede to their honesty of conviction, but they were traitor3 none the less. Aud in eo far as they uphold the course then, so now. If we may not ask thorn to apologize, we cer? tainly may not trust the reins of govern? ment in their hands. And yet we have done so. The Southern democracy controls this government to day, but under limitations which enforce circumspection on its part. In common decency the country should wait until the last Union soldier has passed to the other shore before destroying the last barrier which was supposed to divide those who fought for, from those ...

One glance at the circu? lar settled it, and the pedlar of red paper was incontinently hustled toward the lloor. He resisted, and fought with the tenacity and coinage of a bulldog. Two or three stalwart policemen were called to the scene, and the intruder was dragged outside of the Building. His pockets were literally!stuffed with circulars, and, as the officers shook him into submission, a shower of red hand? bills fell from every fold in his clothes. These circulars read as follows : "By Irishmen Ireland will be free." "No home rule." "Tot...

A LKXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. MAY 12.

It will continue in session during the week, and close on the fallowing Sunday night, with the Bishop's address. Both Bishops will make their of? ficial addressee, including reports of their wjrk for the past year, early in the session. A large uumber of ministers and lay dele? gates are expected. Among matters of badness coming before this council, it is quite certain that the work with the colored people will demand its serious attention. It is also probable that a proposed amendment to the constitution, giviog seats to no cler? gymen, unless they are presbyters, will come up. The proposition made at the last General Convention to change the name of the church, may lead to some decided ex prassious of the determination of this dio cese to remain by the ancieut l...

Mr. Handy ie a stalwart republican, but he expressed himself freely on the action of the late Kentucky Convention. "Its en? dorsement of President Cleveland's course," said he, "is about as equivocal as was the tscjtch verdict. 'Not guilty, but don't do it again.' The real platform of that conven? tion was Heury Watterson's speech, which was punctuated with clauses denouncing Cleveland's civil service reform sham. By ! the way, it is about time that it was de ntuoced heartily by men of common sens?.

_FBIDAY EVENING, MAY 13._ Buried Alive.?A horrible case of trance has occurred at Odessa, in Russia, and, o*iug tu the position of the person, has caused considerable sensation. Maj. Maju ruff, an artillery officer and aide-de-camp to the Governor General of Odessa, aged 35, died, as was supposed, three weeks ago, somewhat suddenly, and was interred forty hours afterward. His funeral was marked by much military pomp and*by the presence of all the civic and military notables. A few days ago, while the family vault in the necropolis was being renovated for the Rus? sian Fete des Morta, the coffin lid was no? ticed to have been partly forced open. It was immediately removed, and the body was found face downward. The face was dreadfully lacerated and the fleBb gnawed from the hands. The corpse was still bleed? ing, which confirms the statement of a work? man that his attention was first attracted by a noise in the coffin, and the unfortunate M?jor died only on the instant of the ap? pal...
