Their children are their most precious possessions and need more of their care than anything else, anil no man who ha9 that care for his own household, tho waut of which the Apostle tells us make* him worse than an infidel, will live unless obliged by the direst necessity in any place where be cannot bring them up properly.

"ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 27. The second of July approaches rapidly. As Rev. Dr. McGlynn has positively and emphatically refused to obey the order of the head of his church to no to Rome and be tried by an ecclesiastical court for preach? ing doctrinea coutrary to tho.-e of his church, and as the time allowed him for obeying that order will expire on the day referred to, he will, in all probability, on that day, be publicly excommunicated. Dr. Mclllynn, as a man, has an indisputable right to advocate any opinion ho may choose; but as a Catholio priest he has no right to preaoh doctrines antagonistic to those of the Catholic Church. If he really believe that a poor man's lot or farm should be taken away from him without compensation, he should have withdrawn from the church before he commenced to preach that unchristian doctrine, and his failure to do so detracts considerably from his reputation not only as a Christian but as a man, as it shows a desire to reap the preseut ad...

MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 27 Disgraced Because He Didn't Fight a Duel.?The social sensation of the week h Berlin has been the verdict of the officers of the court of honor in the case of Maj. Hinze, accused of omitting to challenge to a duel bis political opponent in the Reich? stag, who, during thecompaign, aspersed his honor as an officer. Maj. Hinze was retired from the army on a pension. He was a prominent deputy in the late Reichstag. He opposed the septennate and favored the short-service system. He became intensely unpopular among his former brother-officers, who denounced him duri?g the electoral struggle as unfit to bear an army title or to wear orders. He prosecuted his slanderers iu a court of law and obtained a successful verdict, whereupon the stall" officers of the guards corps appointed the court of honor, whose decree deprives Hinze of i he right to the title of major and to wear the uniform of the army.

TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 2s. Protectorate seem to be favorites with Boine people iu this country, who rocom meod them as easy settlements of all trou? bles iu neighboring counties. Such a recom? mendation has been made in the cases of San D.miingo, Panama and Nicaragua, and now an Americau protectorate is recommended iu the case of the Sandwich Islands. If this nation can protect all its own country it will do all that is required of it. To at? tempt to protect more, and thereby become entangled iu foreign alliances, would not only bo an assumption of extra and needless labjr, but would heedlessly involve the country in the dangerous risks it has here? tofore avoided by a strict observance of the prescriptive law on the subject, as advised by Washington in bia Farewell Address.

fg. ?^4- 4k %t A LKXANDEIA. wednesday evening, june 'J!'. The RUMOR ia revived, aud from other sources than Richmond, that the creditors of Virginia will make still farther concessions in th( it natural desire to effect a settlement of the debt Virginia ewes them, in order to obtain at least a portion, though a small one, of the money that is due them. As has often been said, the settlement of the debt is of vastly more importance to Virginia than any mere term? upon which that settlement may be effected. For that reason, but, that only, it is hoped the rumor referred to may be true; for if the creditors bo not satisfied with the settlement, it will not be an hou orable and houest one, and the stain it will leave upon the State will he a constant an? noyance and trouble, and will always tend to make her people feel ill at ease in the presence of those of States who pay their debts according to the term* upon which they were contracted.
