? wm: ? ? i i ; :mm ? . FRIDAY evening. MAY 27._ Early yesterday morniu,' probably every voter in the city found under bis front door a handbill slatiug that: "The woikiugmeu of Alexandria have seen their city oppressed by a water corporation, cheated by contractors, taxing citizens un? equally through its gas works, working con? victs where its honest citizens should be em? ployed, neglecting the laws or enforcing them with partiality, devising a scheme to destroy homesteads, and lagging behind the oaurch of progress. Therefore the working men have resolved to have a better admin? istration of city affairs." If the working men of Alexandria, who compose nine tenths of the voters of the city, had teen all these things, us reasonable creature?, they would have availtd themselves of the opportunity afforded by yesterday's election to defeat tho parly responsible for ttiein. But, in? stead of that, they sustained tho party by a larger majority than at the previous mu? nicipal election....

This is tho second time in the past two years that the party, like a rock amid the angry bilious, has proved itself invulnerable to the onslaughts of old foes and recent renegades in hotly contested local issues. As stated yes? terday, tho partisans of the two parties worked assiduously to secure tho success of their respective tickets, and at sundown, when the polls were closed, it was impossi? ble to say which had b...

au FEI DAY EVENING, MAY 27 The Ckown Prince's Throat Affec? tion.?The Berlin Reicht-Anzeiger gives the following account of the course of Crown Piince Frederick William's illness : "In Jan? uary last bis imperial highness was seized witn an inflammatory affection of the throat, of which the outward indications were a slight cough and intense boareeneaa. The symptoms refused to yield under remedies previously applied with success in Bimilar attacks. A course of treatment of several weeks at Ems, though most beneficial to the Crown Prince'o general health, failed to remove the local affection. The medical authorities called to consult with the body physician agreed that the English specialist, Dr. Mackenzie* be a?ked to give an opin? ion. Dr. Mackenzie, after several examina? tions, found the Prince's condition not so serious as to debar hope that the trouble might be removed, with proper treatment, In the course of time."

lim m \ SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 28._ The wise example of a typographical union in New York in denouncing an at? tempted boycott of tho Sun newspaper of that city, has been juat aa wisely followed by the Savannah typographical union, which has passed resolutions declaring that the privilege of tho pres.-; to a freo and full expression of opinion upon all matters' of daily concern should bo unquestioned and untrammelled, and that any attempt of la? bor organizations to interfere with the bus-' iness of any newspaper should he condemn? ed and censured. As nine-tenths of the people of this country are laborers, the newspapers necessarily have in depend upon that class for the larger part of thtir sup? port, ar.d as newppaper proprietors have just a? much common sense as any other olasa of people, self interest, let alone regard for right and justice, is sufficient not only to prevent them from doing anything to harm laborers, but to induce them to do everything that is possible to pioinol...

SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 25. Tee Strongest Man on Eabth.?There is a man on the Darson river, below Day? ton, named Angela Cordelia, who claims to be the strongest man in the world. He is an ^Italian, aged twenty-eight, and stands five feet ten inches, weighing 19S pounds. His strength was born with him, for he had no athletic training. He differs from other men chiefly in the osseous structure. Although not of unusual size, his spinal col? umn is much beyond the ordinary width, and bis bones and joints are made on a sim? ilarly large and generous scale. He has lifted a man ol 200 pounds with the middle finger of bis right had. The man stood with one foot on the floor, his arms outstretched, bis hands grasped by two persons to balance his body. Cordelia then stooped, placed the third finger of his right hand under the man's foot, and, without any perceptible effort, raised him to the height of four feet and deposited him on a table near at hand. Once two powerful men waylaid Cordelia, w...

-, ^^^^^^^ Alexandria. monday evening, may 30. A great many newspapers confouud the civil service law with the civil service rules, and excusa tho President for tho observance of the latter upon the ground that his party, and not himself, is responsible therefor. Tin1? law was enacted by Congress, and is bind? ing; the rules are the arbitrary creation of the republican civil service commission, and oun be altered at the President's will. And neither in the law, nor in tho plutform adopted by the national democratic conven? tion, can any warrant be found for excluding all men over thirty live years of age from the postal, and all over forty-five from all the other branches of the federal service, subject to the civil service law. Neither does the law nor the demccratic platform authorize the republican civil service com? mission to select from among those who have passed the ri-anisite examination the four from whom the democratic appointing power shall choo3e the appointee.

MONDAY EVENING, MAY 30. They Want the Earth.?The Academy of Music, New York, was crowded to the doors last night, the occasion being the reg? ular weekly meeting of the Anti-poverty Society. The chief speakers were Dr. Mc Glynn and Henry George. "We want the earth," said Dr. McGlynn. "We wanttheland because we want theking dom of heaven, because He has given it to us. We want it not bo much as a right, but as a duty. Because He has laid it before us as a duty never to surrender it." Speak? ing of labor and its blessedness, be spoke of] Christ as an humble laborer, and his birth? place was not a marble palace. The object of the new crusade was* to really preserve the sacred rights of property, to enforce the commandment, "Thou shalt not steal."

ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, MAY -'A. The Treasury Department is now at work constructing, at great oxpense, an additional vault for the storage of one bun drei million silver dollars, the present vaults being alteady so crowded with such dollars tbat ihey can hold no more of them. The people will not keep silver dollars, but send them back to the Treasury a? rapidly as possible. But still the coinage of silver dollars goes on at the rate of two million a month. As they cannot be forced into cir? culation, and are held as security for silver certificates, why the uncoined bullion could not be usdd for that purpose, und the great expense of coinage and storage bo saved, i? Lard to comprehend. No matter how wront; the President may be, and is. on the ques? tion of civil service reform, that ho is right ou the silver question, the wisest and raost disinterested men in the country have not the slightest doubt.

TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 81. Nabbow Escape.?A most miraculous es? cape from death was made in Richmond yesterday. Richard Williams, a young man living in Manchester, took his wife to the station of the Coast line, just opposite the city, to get on the train for Petersburg. The train, be learned, would not stop for him there, and leaving his wife he hurried over the long bridg6 to board it in Richmond and stop it for his wife in Manchester. He was too late and met the train on the bridge. He tried to jump upon the platform but was knocked over the railing of the bridge and went down sixty feet into the water. A number of peraons witnessed the accident with horror, supposing the man was instant? ly killed, but his feet touched bottom first, and he is apparently not injured unless internally. A boat was hurried into the stream and he was rescued. Raid ok Illicit Distillers.?Deputy Collector R. G.

They cer? tainly do not for the great body of intelli? gent white Virginians, for such men are aware of the harm attempted repudiation has done their State, and know that alruoH any settlement would be better for her than none at all. The democratic party iu Vir? ginia accepted the Riddleberger bill,but with th? understanding that it should be sus? tained by the courts. But the highest court in tho laud having rendered that bill null and void, all further attempts to enforce it must, therefore, bo utterly void; aud wise democrats know this as well as any body eise.
