""ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 8._ And now the U. S. Coiiris bave crushed the "coupon crusher," so that people who owe property or license taxes to Virginia, can not only pay the same by a simple ten? der of Virginia coupons, whether they bo received or not, but chu do ao with impuni? ty, as all the 8tate treasurers and common? wealth's attorueys, and the auditor and at? torney general of the State, are enjoined and restrained from sueing or proceeding agiinst them in any way therefor. No Wonder the treasurers are thiukiug about reBiguiug, when the State says they shall not reoeive coupons, and when the national government eays that a mere tender of cou? pons is a legal payment of tax bills, and re? lieves the tenderer of all his pecuniary ob? ligations to the State. In view of this con? dition of affairs, would it not have been in? finitely better for the State if the legislature had agreed to the creditor*' proposal, which was that the sum total of the annual amount of inte...

ALKXAKDRIA. tk cbs day evening, june 0. The St. Paul Globe says: "Tbe democrat? ic party is capable of making a nomina? tion to suit its&lf, without regard to whether it is Hill or Cleveland, or any body else. New York is a big 8tate, with a big elect or.il vote, but the democratic party is bigger than New York." Rarely have more truth and wisdom been condensed iu fewer words or been more timely. As tho Southern States eupply nearly all the democratic electoral votes, the democratic Presidential nomiuee should by rights come from one of tbo3c States; but tbe North is not yet sut'fi iently nationalized to warrant the risk of putting that right to a practical test. But tbe West ii full of material for a sound, true blue, and oid time democratic Presi dential nominee; and the next one should come from that section. Tbe democratic party has not profited mucb, eiuce tbe war, either by democratic Presidential candidates or democratic Presidents from New York, and to select its...

FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 10. The truth of what is said iu the Ga? zette's Washington correspondence to day in reference to the communication between this city and Washington has long been reeogui/.cd. The ferry company does all it can with the means at its cotummd ; but its boats run only during the day, and by them it takes a passenger three-quarters of an hour to go from the wharf in this city to Pennsylvania avenue in Washington. The railroad depot here is so far from the centre of the city, and the trains ruu at such une? qual interval, that travel by that route is inconvenient and troublesome. What is needed are hourly tratua on the railroad un? til midnight and the removal of the depot to a more convenient point. That need supplied, many people de? ine business in Washington would come here to live, as the cost of living, leaving out of view many other advantage?, is cheaper hire than there. The railroad would ueces taiily profit by any such addition to the population of the city....

ALPJxXlSrDHIA.. SATURDAY EVENING. JUNE 11. Somb months ago ex-President Jefferson Davis wrote an article, which was publish? ed in the North American. Review, io which he stated not only cogent but patent rea? sons why the bill for assigning to the la diaos their lands in saveralty should not pass. The bill, however, did pass, and is now a law, and the "whole power of the administration" is being exerted to enforce it. But the Indians must either have read Mr. Davis's article and been impressed by its strong fact? and forcible deductions, or else arrived at hisconclusion by iutuition or their own inuer consciousness, for they are resorting to every means in their power by which to prevent, or at least to delay, the enforcement of the bill's provisions. The bill, of course, was passed for the nominal purpose of benefiting the Iudiaue; but its real intent was to benefit tho men who by it will be enabled to obtain possession of the Indianh' land. If, as Mr. Iugernoll says, "we catch it...

KXA^DRIA. MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 13._ The fact that some crows?the ravens of this country, have built their nests in the trees around the White House, when re? cently discovered, was said by certain news? paper correspondents to indicate good luck to the present occupant of that house. But in the olden time the raven was a bird of bad omeu, and not only its proximity, but its very sight avoided. Nothing is more common in old English literature than ref? erences to the ill luck then supposed to be foreboded by the appearance of the raveu. '"Thus, like tho sad, presaging raven, that tolls The sick man's passport in her hollow beak, And in the shadow of tho silent night Dc th shake contagion from her sable wings." But the President is a man of destiny, and even bad omens are turned to good ones in his behalf. _ ?enebal R.OS3ER says he is "glad the war terminated as it did." Every ox Con? federate,from Mr. Davis to the lowest private in the rear rank, accepts defeat in good j faith, and i...

MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 13. A Fish Story.?Ig the southwestern cor? ner of Georgetown, S. C, in the Santee swamp, is Dawbo Lake, widely celebrated for its great quantity of excellent fish of all kinds. About two weeks ago a terrific hail storm of several hours' duration passed over i he place, beating the limbs and leaves of i rtes into the lake in great quantities and damaging the crops in tha vicinity very much. A few days after the storm the fieh in the lake began to appear upon the sur? face of the water by thousands, the number increasing daily, until now the whole sur lace of the water is covered with them. The water of the lake has always beeo of a whit inn color, but now it is as black as ink and quite bitter. It is said the fish, on first ris? ing, approached the shore, struggling as if j to get on land. Alligators, cooters and anakea were seen leaving the lake in great numbers. Dawho lake \s about one and a half miles long, from ten to thirty feet deep and from one to two hund...
