WEDNESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 10. It seems that Representative Brady doea not agree that his quaudani friend, Genera! Mahone, who was wont to call him his chief lieutenant, is justly entitled to all the merit he claims for having appropriations made for public buildings in Virginia. He not only denies the General's assertion that his influence obtained the appropriation for Petersburg, and eays that that appropriation was chiefly the result of his own ioflueuce with certain of his democratic colleague?, but adds that the inaccurate statements of the General are not too numerous to men? tion, but too numerous for him to be spend? ing his time in correcting them. If Mr. Brady would ouly tell all he knows about Mahoneism his revelations would astonish even those who now think themselves were acquainted with the true story of that devil? try. _____ The determination of the democratic majoritv of tho pensions committee of the IT. S. House of Representatives to report adversely upon the Sena...

WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 1!?. origin of the Cemetery.?The Jews used to bury their dead under the earth, and ibis mode seems to have beeu the ear? liest in use. Egypt embalmed hor corpses, and the earlier Greeks aud Kornaus consum? ed the body after death by tire, tbo ashes ouly receiving sepulture. Subsequently in those nations this practice fell i?to disuse, at least partly, and then their dead bodies were buried in vaults or chambers under ground, such as tbo Catacombs. In ancient Komo tbo bodies of her most illustrious sons were permitted to be buried unburned, as a special mark of favor, within the walls of the city. The next step was the erection of churctu s over the graves of martyrs. Then emperors and kings were admitted to sar? cophagi within the church walls. The ex? tension of this practice was the origin of churchyards. These, in crowded towus, be came unhealthy and offensive, and sanitary measures demanded burial without the wails of the city. Thus grew the beautiful ...

ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. JANUARY 20, THE bill recently introduced in the Sen? ate by General Mahone to readjust iuterest accounts with certain States and the city oi Baltimore, is the same old bill that ha3 been before Congress for many years. During the war of 1S12 several of the States ad? vanced the National Government money for that war. Since then, at different times, all the principal of that debt has been paid, and the bill referred to is only to pay certain unpaid interest. Special bills to pay this in? terest in individual States, Mtiong them Massachusetts, have been passed, and the money been paid, but no general bill has yet boon passed for that purpose, because the Sou!hern States, Virginia and South Carolina, would be beneficiaries. It i? hoped that now, with a republican to help Vir? ginia in the Senate, the bill may ra9s, though that republican has allowed all oi his six years term, except six weeks, to ex? pire befoie he proffered that help.

FRIDAY EVENING. JANUARY 21. The plain*, common sense democrats of North Carolina, who have their eyes open, ami who take practical views of what they see, are as much opposed to the civil service reform humbug as those of New York and Indiana. One of them, the editor of the Wilmington Star, Bays: 'Tf any attempt in 1S8S is made to com? mit tbe democratic party to to the blow hot and old policy?to keep republicans in offic9 aud thereby exclude democrats?then you may count North Carolina out of the democratic column. The true motto is? that tbe Government patronage belongs to those in power. The republicans have al? ways understood this, and have always act? ed upon it. If ft republican is elected in 1SSS there will be few democrats in office by January, 1S90." It is a sad and deplorable assertion, but none the less true, that the d?>y of high, es? thetic, pure and patriotic politics has passed, and that prejudice and the cohesive power of office and emolumeui are now the mofct eff...

ALEXANDRIA. Saturday evening. January -jj The Supreme Court of Appeals of Vir? ginia has just decided that merchants' licenses in Virginia must be paid for in mo uey, in all cases, before such licenses shall be issued, and before such business n3 require? a license* shall be conducted. It decides that when coupons aro tendered in payment they shall be accepted, but only for the pur? pose of having their genuineness passed upon by a court, and that, in addition, tho amouut of the license shall be paid in mo? ney at the same time, before the license shall be issued. The reason assigned for this de? cision is the remarkable one that there is an unproved report or rumor to the effect that some of tho coupons are spurious. Of course such a decision will be reversed by the Su? premo Court of the United States, because it is a transparent, vain and foolish attempt to evade both the Constitution and tho de? cisions of the Supreme Court in respect of the impairment of contracts.

Tlexandria. MONDAY EVENING. JANl'AEY 24. As a general thins;, the higher the wage?, the more prosperous the community. There? fore every sane man wants wages as high as employers can afford to pay. But facts are stubborn thing?, and the line of justice should be observed in differences between capital and labor as well as in all other matters. Twenty-six years ago the class of lab>rers now on a strike at the coal yards at Jerxey City received seventv-five cent3 a day, an 1 were contented. They now re? ceive two dollars a day; and the cost of liv? ing to-day is cheaper than it was then in almost every thing except rent. Capital then brought six per cent, interest. It now gladly seeks three per ceut. investments. A Washington republican newspaper says the adverse report of the democratic majority of the House pensions committee on the Senate bill to pension Mrs. Logan, "is enough to mike the heart's blood of every loyal raau boil.'' But the same ma? jority also made an adverse repo...
