^^^^^^ ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 2. There MUST bo some fair and just and reasonable men among the knights of labor. But if there be, how they can endorse, or even acquiesce in, the action of their fellows in attempting to prevent Capt. Davis, a poor, but brave and gallant ex-Confederate, from being captain of the steamer Excelsior, Btid earning a living for bis dependent fam? ily, simply for the reason that he doesn't belong to their party, is hard to understand. Tue know nothings were denounced, and properly, for their attempted ostracism of foreign born citizens and Catholics, but their action was merciful compared with that re? ferred to, the outrageous tyranny of which exceeds any thing ever perpetrated under the most despotic governments of the old world, and is utterly incompatible with the existence of free institutions. The knights complain of the oppression of the law and the cruelty of employers ; but if there ever was.a case in which more unjust oppression and mo...

THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 2. Saved by Heb Bustle.?The southern bound mail train on the Seaboard and Ro anoke Railroad came near killing a young lady Friday. Just beyond Margettsville the road runs for some distance through a kind of swamp, which Ib a favorite place for fishing. Miss Noni Jaques was sitting on the embankment indulging in the seductive work of angling for eels, when the mail came thundering along. There was enough room for her to remain in safety where she was, but with the usual non-presence of mind which generally prevails upon such occasions, she got up, and started across the track. The engineer did his best to stop his train, but was unable to do so. The locomotive struck Miss Jaques and hurled her from the track. The train was stopped and backed to the place where she was supposed to be lying a mangled corpse. The trainmen and passengers, however, were amazed to find a very much frighten? ed and exceedingly angry young lady, who had escaped all injury except having...

ALEXANDRIA. FEI DAY EVENING, JUNE 3. Mr. Sheeman says: "What language can express the cruel and barbarous atrocity of the controlling ele? ments of tbe South in their treatment of re? publicans, both white and black, and espe? cially of the freedmen who had been invest? ed by constitutional amendments with liber? ty aud political rights? In ten years after the war the freedmen of tbe South could not, as a rule, vote wherever their vote would change tbe result; they could bold no office, and might be cheated and robbed and mur dered with impunity. There is not an in? telligent man in this broad land of either {>arty who does not know tbnt Mr. Cleve and is now President of the United Slates by virtue of crimes against the elective fran? chise, includiug murder, arson, ballot-box stuffing, forgery, and perjury, but for which James G. Elaine would now be in his place.'' Mr. Sherman's scouts in the South must have made their reports to him, and those reports must have been uns...

V*. V FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 3. A Beutal Husband.?John Kelly, of New York, was discharged from the posi? tion which he held in the House of Mercy recently. Then he got drunk and went a home frenzied with liquor and assaulted his wife with a chair, breaking it to pieces over her head. Then he made a noose in a clothes-line, placed it around her neck and endeavored to bang her to a strong hook in the wall. When the poor woman was near? ly strangled he desisted from his purpose, and after kicking her in the most brutal manner left the house. The wife crawled into bed, where she remained, unable to help herself, until the next morning, when her huaba?d returned. He was furious because Bhe did not get up and get his breakfast, and, dragging her out of bed, he gave her another terrible beating and left her more dead than alive. A daughter of Kelly call ed at the bouse and found her mother un? conscious and apparently in a dying state 8he reported the case to the police, and Kelly was arrest...

More than twenty-two years have now elapsed .since the last gun wad tired in the war between the States, and yet it seems that all the advauces toward a restoration of the amicable relations that should subsist between fellow citizens of a common coun? try must oouie from tho South. Well, it is better that such advances should always come only from one section than that they should not come at all.

S Barnim Sofie. SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 4. Cbow?.?You have often seen a great black crow. I will tell you some stories about them. They are great thieves, and they are very smart. They say that a crow can count three, aud can count no more. This is how they found that out: A mac lost a great deal of corn from his fields, the crows having stolen it. He went out there and waited all day trying to get a chance to shoot tbem, but they would not come. Then he took adother man with him, and the two stayed there a long time: after awhile one of them went away, but the crows would not come down. Then bo took two with him, and after awhile one went away, then after awhile another went swa3\ but the crows would not come down. Then he took three men with him, and after awhile the three weDt away; and the crows came back and he shot as many as he wanted to. That seemed to show that the crows could count three, but they could not count four. Here ia the story of a very tantalizing ??iow : Enginee...

ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, JUNE C. Mb. Dobman B. Eaton, in an article in the June uurnber of tho Kurth America,'. Re? view, entitled Parties and Independents, in which he essays the vain task of proving the practicability of tho impraotical mugwump civil service reform, says, that included iu the proper sphere of party, is '"bringing into office those officials, and those only, who will make the laws the people demand and execute the policy which they have ap proved." And that is all any good and true democrat asks of the administration for the election of which he "worked." The quoted wordi are true, and in writing them Mr. Eaton gave himself away, and rendered ridiculous ali tho other ideas contained in his article. All the democrats want of the administration of their own choosing is that the offices at its disposal shall be filled by officials, a?i(2 those only, who mil execute the policy which they hare approved.

He fears that he is going to recover, and Satur? day night he made a desperate attempt to tear the bandage from his wounds. He partially succeeded before he could be se? cured by the policeman who keeps constant watch over him, and the attendant, who went to his assistance. During the time the doctor was rebinding the wound the disap? pointed murdered raved wildly, and threat? ened the attendants with instant death if he could be loose. He swore he would remem? ber all who were trying to save his life, and shoot them like dogs if he ever recov? ered strength. "Let me go." he yelled; "why can't you let me die now?

He also indirectly charged Eng? land with bribing the Grand Vizier with ?(300,000, and other palace officials with large amounts, in order to secure their ap? proval of the convention.

Sir Henry indignantly denied that he or his government had been guilty of bribery. The Turkish officials who were said to have received the bribe...
