STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA; WEDNESDAY EVENING, MARCH 22,'1865. W. .7. O OWING, Editor. The Evacuation of Richmond, The loyal people of the Union, as they read the daily bulletins detailing the triumphant march of Sherman towards the rebel capital, are very apt to console themselves with I the idea that the period of rebel rule in Richmond is drawing rapidly to a conclusion. Su,ch thoughts have aiA> been provoked by the reports which have reached this side that the rebels were taking from the beleaguered city some of the most important of the machinery of government, which has been held to indicate, conclusively, that they coutemplate its abandonment at an early day. It is both probable and possible that in the end the retr els will have to leave that city, but it,is by no means yet ascertained definitely that the end is anywhere so near as the over sanguine would have us believe. The early possession of the city by us depends on several contingencies, very likely to happen...

STATE JOURNAL. A LEXANORIA. THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 23, 1865, W. .T. COWING, Editor. Genera! Butler,, The fact that Gen. Butler’s commission as Major General would expire at an early day, and the probability that when it did the President would refuse to reuew it, and permit him to retire to the shades of private life, has been mentioned in this paper with such comment as seemed called for by the pleasant intimation. Ever since his dismissal from the command ot the Army of the James, he and his friends hare been making the most strenuous exertions to have the decree of punishment pronounced against him annulled. Despite all their and Ms efforts, it is now definitely stated that there is no probability whatever that he will be given a position in the army again. The President is said to have remarked that he has rendered all the service of which he was capable, while Lieutenant General Grant persists that it wodld be alike an insult to him and a damage to the cause, to have "the man ...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 24, 1865. W. J. C0W1NG,,,.. * Editor. Family Jars The demon of Discord has taken possession of Dixie’s land as a part of his inheritance. — As the rebels weaken they become fretful and peevish. Finding things generally in a bad way, and ruin impending, they begin to lay the blame on each other. Davis walks into his Congress with ungloved hands, and it returns the compliment. The papers call the generals imbeciles, and the latter “get even by abuse of each other, while the people denounce all of them indiscriminately, as doing all in their power to ruin the South and help on the work of conquest, To personal animosities are added those of sections. The extreme South complains that it is purposely left out in the cold as punishment for contumacious conduct towards the Richmond authorities. The latter denounce the Gulf States as being false to the very principles on which the rebellion was based. It will be remembered that to the Senator...

,’ATE journal. ALEXANDRIA: SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 25, 1865, W. .1. COWING Editor. The Situation. In a brief notice of tlm ,probabilities of an early evacuation of Richmond by the rebels, we said, a few days since, that unless Sherman was able to effect a junction with Grant, it was, by no means, a necessity of the situation, SO far as the rebels were concerned According to the representation of Jeff. Davis, made to the rebel Congress prior to its late stampede from Richmond, the capital was in greater danger now than ever before. This is an opinion from one.competent to judge, besides we ourselves know it to be true. The danger arises from several sources. Grant, Sherman, and Schofield have made the military situation exceedingly precarious, while the- successful raid of Sheridan cut off several of the main arteries that furnished the rebel army with the scant supply of food on which it subsists. — Nevertheless, we are inclined to the opinion that, if Sherman is stayed - in ids tri...
