ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. MAY 1G._ The Washington Republican says: "Both as soldier and citizen Mr. Davis had taken an oath to observe and obey the laws of the United States, and in that oath there was no clause releasing him because of any piBition the State of Mississippi might take." Both as a soldier and a citizen Gen? eral Washington took an oath to ob? serve and obey the laws of Great Britain! an 1 in thaf oath there was no clause releas? ing him because of any position the colony of Virginia might take. But General Wash? ington was successful. He bad only one country to fight agninst, and had another one to help him. Mr. Davis had the whole world to fight against, aud bad none but his own to help him. Mr. John Wish applied for and has ob? tained admission to Lee Camp of Confeder? ate veterans at Richmond. Why a man who a short time ago, in Michigan, said, so help him God, he bad always locked upon the U. S. flag as his own, should want to be a comrade of men who for four lo...

ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 17. Thebe isa popular belief in the South tbat the war ended in 1865, and t bat a com? plete and permanent restoration of the fra? ternity and equality of the people of the once divided sections waa effected by the election of the Presidential candidates of the un.sec tional and national democratic party in 1884.

TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 17. Popular Ebroks.?Archbishop Corrigan made his canonical visitation to the Church of the Sacred Heart, New York, Sunday morning. Low mass was celebrated, at the conclusion of which the Archbishop spoke on the popular errors, which, he said, wero widely prevalent at the present time. The first of ihe?e was the idea that private own? ership of land was unjust. This idea the Archbishop characterized aa a fallacy against both philosophy and common sense, and as against the teachings of the Catholic Church. Those who claimed that land, like sunshine and air, was the free gift of God, and equally the property of all, overlooked the great difference thai BUD and air canuot become private property bs can land. He declared that every man bad a right to ac? quire, by honest means, as much property as he could, and cited the Indians as au ex? ample of the disastrous results of the free land policy. He also said that the idea was in direct, opposition to a decree of the P...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY IB. Venus and Saturn.?The planet Saturn figures in the most interesting celestial event of the month. Says an authority: On the 30tb, at uooDday, Saturn and Veuua are in conjunction, the ringed wonder of the skies being at that time two degrees fifteen min? utes south of the fairest of the stars. A powerful telescope will bring out the planets at the time of conjunction, or at the moment when they are in the same right ascension, but observers with the unaided eye will find a lovely picture painted on the celestial canvas on the evenings of the 29th and 30th. On the former evening Saturn will be east of Venus, and on the latter evening he will be west of her. The meeting and passing of two large planets is always a noteworthy event. The moon on the first day of her quarter will lend her silvery light to the scene, and the two bright planets will hang side by side in the western sky, coming into view soon after sunset, and continuing to adorn the firmament unti...

mm AL^XATSTPHI A. tuub30ay EVENING, may 1?. Senator .Sherman ia a wise man In his generation. He is a candidate for the next Presidency, and seeiog how the cat 13 going to jump on one of the questions likely to be involved in the contest for that office, he has already announced his intention of jumping with it. The question alluded to is reciprocity with Canada, and the removal of all restrictions upon trade between this and that country ; on which he comes out emphatically in the affirmative. In this he is right. It is too late in the nineteenth century, and the inhabitants of the earth are too homogtnious now, for intelligent people to put. up auy longer with any sort of trade restrictions. Such people kcow they have a natural right to tell iu the dearest and buy in the cheapest market, and as they ate rapidly increasing in number-, the influence ofibeir votes is becomiug potential. The protectionists are too strong to permit them to hope for entire free trade set awhile, but the...

A Pretty State of Affairs.?A fath? er might to-?ay tramp all over Chicago with a son who wanted to learn an honeat trade, bo as to beoome a useful citizen, and fail, unless he took him to the Manual Training School and paid tuition for him. Hundreds of boys are now thus taught handicraft at the expense of fathers who can afford to pay for it. But let a poor man's son try it, and he will be met at the door of the factory or shop by a walking delegate of the knights of labor, and turned away. If that does not do, his young face will be bruised by brutal fi3ts, and so will the face3 of those who stand by him.

FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 20. A New Jean D'Arc?The career of a fe? male enthusiast, who professed to have a divine mission to set everything right in France, has just been closed for the moment in a cell at the prefecture of police, Paris. Marie Costerg, born of humble villagers in Savoy, is said to have been Bubject in her childhood to reveries, ecstacies and other sensations of a mystic character. She pro? fessed the utuio8t piety, and had on one oc? casion, while climbing up a mountain, held a tete-a-tete interview with an apparition vaguely described by her as "a white form," which revealed to her the high destinies which the future had io store for her. In? spired by these revelations, Maiie Costerg resolved on making a move, and directed her steps not to Orleans, but to the worldly and frivolous Paris. Her mis? sion led her to take a small room in a quiet house, which she furnished nun? like with two chairs and a straw pallet. A few walks about the gay metropolis in? spired the sain...
