A T_ RXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE I I A writer iu the New York Sun exagger? ates the magnitude of the migration of colored people from certain part9 of the South, and attributes that which really ' does exist to the deuial of the colored man's civil, aB well as political, rights iu those parts. The colored mau's rights, of all kinds, are as secure in Virginia as those of the white man, and what is true of one part of the South, in this respect, is true of all others, certainly so in those States in which the colored exceeds the white pop? ulation in uumbers, as in South Carolina, the State to which the writer alluded to re? fers. The colored people have no more rights in oue Southern State thau in anoth? er, and yet those who,the writer referred to Bays, are compelled to leave South Carol ion on account of the denial of their rights there, don't go to Northern, but to some other Sauthern State, where their condition, as regards civil and political rights, is just the same. There ...

TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 14. Coffee's Boom Burst.?The great cof? fee boom has had a severo check, and since the middle of last week there haB been a turn in the tide, which ended yesterday in a panic and the failure.of three firms in New York. On Thursday the market dropped 50 points ; Friday it dropped 105 more, and on Saturday there was a ?tili sharper break of UK) points, so that the prices were actual? ly three eent? per pound lower when the market opened yesterday morning than it had beeu at the highest price last week. There was n genera! hope yesterday that the lowest point had been reachod, and that the market would rally, since both Rio and Havre were selling higher. Instead of a rally there was a frantic rush to sell out, resulting in a still further drop of from 110 to 125 points over Saturday's market. It was then believed that failures must follow. At one o'clock the failure of B. G. Arnold & Co., was announced. Then came tho panic, and a further drop of 200 points ove...

. Ik AL1^XA?] >K1A. WEDNESDAY EVENING. JONE 15. Professor Lan<;ston, one of the most intelligent colored men in this country, and ex-U. S. Minister to Hayti. says: "I state unhesitatingly, in view of my knowledge, that the colored people of the United States have made more rapid, sub? stantial, educational and material progress than any class of emancipated negroes, since their liberation on this continent." This same professor i." not a democrat, but a republican, and, it will he recollected, is the same one who said the appointment of'Mattbews, Trotter, aud a few other ne? groes, would not divide the negro vote, and that the only appointment that might tend to produce that ellect would he that of a negro to a cabinet position, and ouly then if hi? nomination should he confirmed by the unanimous vote of the democratic Sena? tors.

ALEXANDRIA, friday evening. jl'ne 17. Perhaps it is as well that things have hap ? penel as they have as to the return of the captured battle flags. The South certainly did not expect it nor had she asked for it, but the act of the War Department was a graceful one, calculated, more tbau anything else which has happened lately, to obliterate the memories of civil strife, and would have been the more highly appreciated because it wad spontaneous. The mad clamor which it evoked from the Graud Army of the Republic, however, aud the eagerness of the republic.ru politicians of the North to lead in it, show us that the spirit which brought on the war is not dead?that it scarcely sleeps?and admouiahes us that ad? vances towards friendship with our late iocs are not likely to be mot in a frieudly spirit by the muss of them. There has been far too much gush on the part of certain South? ern meu ; when the North wants a recon? ciliation iu heart as well as in form, we have shown that it cau b...

^imutina feette. vi-* SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 18. $10,000,000 Lost.?The principals of the late wheat clique in Chicago are estimated losers to the extent of $4,000,000. Their fol? lowers and tools are losers to fully the same amount. It is roughly calculated that the collapse in Chicago represents about $10, 000,000 to all concerned on the losing side. A Cincinnati friend of the great sharks when asked if they were likely to save any? thing out of the ruin, replied: "That de? pends. If they can hold on to their cash wheat they are all tight. The question is, can they? There is a prodigious amount of wheat in Chicago, more than in any other wheat centre in America; in fact, more than one-third of the visible supply of the country is right at that point now. There is little in Duluth and little in Minneapolis. I have an abiding faith in the men in the clique and their resources, and hope to see them come out of this thing in pretty re speotable shape."
