ALEXANDRIA. monday evening, j?ne 20._ The manner in which the creditors of Virginia are now denounced as Sbylocks and blood stickers, by some of the would-be leaders of tho democratic party, for simply asking for.not the whole, but only a portion of what is due them, and that the State re? deem her own solemn promise, and accept her coupous iu payment of her taxes, recalls to memory the reply of Isaac of York, in Ivauhoo, to the Prior of Jorvaulx, who had "marveled that such gnawing adders should bo suffered to eat into the bowels of the State, aud even of the holy chinch herself, with foul usuries and extortious." That reply was as follows : "I pray your reverence to remember that I forced my moneys upon no one. But when churchmen and laymen, princo and prior, knight and priest como knocking to Isaac's door, they borrow not his shekels with these uncivil turms. It is Iben, Fiiend Isaac, will you pleasure us in this matter, aud our day shall be duly kept, so God sa' me? aud kind Isa...

_ MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 20. A Quaint Old Tombstone.?A corres pondent of the Baltimore Sun writes from Stafford county, Va. : "Within a few miles of the Potomac river, nestled amongst the hills of Station! county, stands a quaint, old church, built in the early colonial times of brick brought over from England. It is known as'Old Aquia Church.' The Feder? al armies camped around it, and the hand of a ruthless soldiery not only was laid upon the venerable building, but also desecrated the graves of the dead which lie in the graveyard surrouding the ehurch. Many of the tombstones are exceedingly old, but hav? ing been so abused and broken by the sol? diers the names and dates cannot be deci? phered. There is one, however, which at? tracted the writer's attention, and which is of interest to MarylaDders, and to the Sew all family especially.

TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 21. I Communicated. Burn the Flapr.M. Pile up the flags and cart them out Behind the White House on the lot, Have all the mighty chiefs about To see them burn instead of rot. Tis true, they cost much blood to win, Blood drawn from both the blue and grey: But that ought not to weigh a pin Compared with politics to-day! Barn tho rlafc.s, they brood contention ; Pile up the tattered relics high; Peace! the word, and not Dissension ! Let all by-gone* forever die. Who wants the banners ? not the grey; Their cauos is dead ; forever gone.' 'Twas buried on App'mattox day, When ranks were seared and bodies worn.

ALKXAjSTPRIA. wednesday evening. june 22. The New York Herald says: "On the next Presidential ticket a whole-eouk-d Southerner Bbould have the Becond place. That will make the administration "nation* al," bury the last remnant of tho old feud and bring the North aud South .shoulder to shoulder for all time to come." But bow could that be, when a "national" order to return Northern and Southern flags alike to their former owoera calls dowu anath? emas upon the head of the man who issued it? and, worse still, when that man, a "na? tional" President, id so impressed with the fear of tho power back of those anathemas, that he hasteus to revoke that order'.-1 How? ever, a3 the Herald's favorite for Vice-Pros ident is Mr. Grady, as nationality, accord? ing to modern democratic ideas, moans the preferment of ex-Union and the degrada? tion of ex Confederate soldiers, pensions to the former at the expense of the latter, and a general subservience of the government to the iutluencB of the 6. ...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 22. Bismarck and thb Assassin.?Referring to bis encounter with Blind, the assassin Prince Bishmarck said recently: "I owe my extraordinary escape from death partly to the solidity and hardness of my rib and partly to the strength of my muscles. Blind had scarcely raised his pistol when I grap? pled with him, and got his right arm in a tight grip, which I never relaxed until he was secured by a patrol of the guard. Of the five shots he fired while we were strug? gling only this one (pointing to his side) took effect, for I had my wits about me and managed to keep his pistol band bent out? ward, except just at the end of the tussle, when be succeeded in turning the barrel full upon my body. But the bullet, though ir stUDg me so sharply that I thought it bad gune clean through me, only glanced oil' my rib. I ran a much more imminent risk from thtt fair play instincts of an honest Prussian guardsman than 1 did from that foolish lad's revolver. You see be was a sm...

THUBSDAY EVENING. JUNE 23. It id to be hoped that the committee cm ?treets will report promptly and that tlie City Council will pass a proper ordiuanco for numbering the houses at its next meet? ing. That Annapolis and Uagerstown should have free letter delivery and Alex? antiria should not would be, if the fault should be .-hown to be hers, in tbe highe.-t degree discreditable. It really makes but little difference what system is adopted in a place of ibis size ; the new would probably be more convenient, but the old will do ; tbe tbiog is to have some system carried out us =;on as possible. At present one has to be told that to find Mr. B-'s house, the location of which he does not know, he must first go to Mr. S-'s, which he docs, and then turn round thecornerand go to the opposite side of the street and he will find Mr. B-V, the fifth door from the corner, &c, &c.

A cool breeze, the precursor of a heavy storm brewing in the west, was gradually developing into a vio? lent wiud, but the woman enjoyed tho re? freshing change and kept her seat, although the rain was beginning to fall heavily. Presently she spied fcn iron pot in the yard, and quitting the bench took up the iron pot and started for the house.

ALEXANDRIA. FHIDAY EVENING, JUNE 24. Ik the democratic party in Virginia is to retain its hold upon the State government, it is of prime necessity that it should he united, and to effect that end there must be u full and fair expression of Us will on the debt question. There are mauy who think that the proposition of the foreign bondhold ? ers should have been accepted ; there are mauy, perhaps, who think differently. His to be presumed that few will risk the danger ofthrowingback tho Commonwealth intothe bands of Mahooe and his mercenaries for the sake of either accepting or rejecting the proposition. The necessity for good gov? ernment is too great to admit of its losa for aoy consideration, however important; and we take it for granted that, however im? practicable it may be, either wing of the par ty will acquiesce in the final decision of the majority. But that decision must come from tho people, not from the politicians, whose interest it seems to be to keep the debt questiou ...

Phocion Howard, Danville, III: Deae Sir?In answer to your letter of request by the Danville Farmers and Me? chanics' Institute that I should deliver an address at its fair, I reply as I did last year. Some years ago 1 delivered an address at the Winnebago county fair, and was re? ceived with great courtesy. There I was among friends, for my memory went back to the months of June, July, and August, 1S32, when as a lieutenant upon the stall' of Col. Zachariah Taylor, I was stationed at Prairie du Chien, or Fort Crawford, as it was then known, and during the memorial and historic Black Hawk war it was my good fortune to help in protecting the pioneer settlers of that country, whose de? scendants I spoke to at Kockford. I cannot come to Illinois this year. Thanking the association through you, I have only to say, as I said last ...
