ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. MAY 23. In the debate in tho Senate of Virginia on the resolution recommending Mr. J. E. Tucker for the seat in the United Siates Supreme Court made vacant by the death of the late Ae90ciate Justice Woods. Sena? tor Heaton, of LouJoud, is repotted as say? ing that: 'If it were adopted and seut to the President it would be the first time he bad ever beard fiom the real democracy of Vir? ginia; that the President's appointments in this State bad not been satisfactory, as thoy did not do justice to the democracy ; and that tbe adoption of the resolufion would be tbe firs:, news tho President had as to what his party in Virginia wanted." There is more truth tban poetry in these wordB( and while they were not calculated to pro? duce the desired effect upon a inau so obsti? nate as tbe President is said to be, there is i.o doubt of tbe fact that, so far at least as they apply to several of the Virginia ap? pointees, they are endorsed not only by many of Major H...

Monday evening, may 23. Why The Eyes Gbow Tibed ?People speak about their eyes being tired, meaniog i but the retina or seeing portiou of the eye 'x fatigued, but such is not the case, as the trtioa hardly ever gets tired. The fatigue i-i in the inner and other muffles attached to the eye-ball and the muscle of accommo? dation, whieb'surrounds the lens of the eye. When a near obje- t is to be looked at this muscle relaxes and allows the lens to thick? en, increasing its refractive power. The in? ner and outer muscles are used in covering the eye on the object to be looked at, the in? ner one being especially used when a near object is looked at. It is in the three mus? cles mentioned that the fatigue is felt, and relief is Becdfed temporarily by closing ? the eyes or gazing at far distant objects. The usual indication of strain is redness of the rim oi the eyelid, betokening a congested state of the inner surface, accompanied with some pain. Sometimes this weariness in? dicates the ...

ALKXANDRfA. TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 24. This is a free and equal country, and any oue man in it has the same rights and priv? ileges that any other man has. A man with a thousand greenbacks, or gold or til ver dollars, has the same right to trade up ou them as one with u thousand bushels of wheat, a thousand yards ot cotton, or a thousand pounds of butter, and the attempt to restrict his profit ou those dollars by limiting his rates of interest is an unjust a? it is futile. Indeed experience has demon? strated the fact that the practical effect of. usury laws, instead of benefiting borrower*, is to increase their troubles. It is, aud of necv.ssily must be, so with all other attempts to restrain the liberty of free men to make individual contracts, or to make them can form their personal habits to those of other people. Hence none of the many laws which demagogues persuade the temperance and laboring people are enacted for their especial benefit, results iu any practical good. _ It woul...

TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 21. Fatal Change of Coubse.?From the stories of the passengers on the steamers Britannic and Celtic, in collision three hun? dred miles at sea, it now appears that when first seen by the passengers on the Celtic* the Britannic was heading to.the starboard of the Celtic, and, without changing her course, would have scraped the starboard aide. ThomaB Eagan, of the Celtic's pas? sengers, says that when the Britannic loom? ed up through the thick fog ehe was run? ning fast, while the Celtic was moving slow? ly. The Celtic signaled and began to back water. Egan understood the signal to mean the giving way to the starboard. In doing thiB the Britannic turned across the Celtic's bow. At first he thought she would clear, she was going so fast, but a mo? ment later it was apparent there would be a collision. Just before striking the Celtic veered to the right alittle and struck back of j the centre of the Britannic. An awful scream? ing of the women on board of the Brita...
