ALEXANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING. JULY 1. Thk Baltimore News says: "Really skillful mechanics are becoming more aud more scarce and trades are only half learned. Old-time workmen were proud of their work and a man would cou sider himself guilty of a piece of tlagrant dishonesty to leave a bad job behind him. The artisau had as much pride in anything he touched as was to be found in the litera? ry creator. But there seems to be no such feeling now. Men are only half educated at thrir trades and about the only thing that gives real concern is the question of pay." The breaking up of the old apprentice system is the cause of this evil, and it3 res? toration will be the only cure. The Ga? zette was informed some time ago by one of the most reputable and respected em? ploying mechanics in this city, that it was a hard matter for him to get good native journeymen, and that the best skilled work? men he got now-a-days were foreigners. There wa3 a time, not so very long ueo either, when a mechani...

_FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 1. Colored Knights of Labor.?The or? ganization of Knights of Labor in the South? ern States is progressing with remarkable rapidity, and very justly creates alarm among manufacturers and employers of labor. Organization of the negroes, and they are in the majority among the labor? ing classes ot the South, means revolt and bitter conflict. As a class the negroes are ignorant, excitable, enthusiastic, and devoid of reason, ready to join any movement re? gardless of consequences that will, for the time, satisfy their morbid desires for unusual "doina." Manufacturers should adopt some rigid measures without delay to meet the emergency of the occasion. It is an easy matter to suppress a movement in its incipiency, and especially so when the class to deal with are susceptible of being easily influenced and convinced. The present growth of the labor organizations among the negroes presents a subject of won? derful importance to the growing industries of the South. A...

ALEXANDRIA. SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 2. The South supplied the author of the Declaration of Independence and the man who inude that declaration effective. She has a ; it*ht, therefore, to celebrate the 4(h of July, and it is hoped she will do so unani? mously. Possibly she would be a little more enthusiastic about it if the order for the return of ber unasked-for flags had not been revoked. General Mahone and Capt. John Wise, who, of all the men the General raised to prominence, seem? to be almost the only one who remains loyal to him, are pro? nounced supporters of Senator Sherman for the next republican Presidential nomina tion, the former having, it is reported, gone so far as to promise the Senator the vote of the united Virginia delegation in the next national republican convention. Judging, however, from the expressions of several of the new us well as of the old prominent re? publicans of t he State, the General may pos? sibly have some difficulty in fulfilling the promise refe...

SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 12. JennieBowman'sMubderer?As stated Id the Gazette, Albert Turner, one of the colored murderers of Jennie Bowman Louisville, Ky., was hanged yesterday morniDg. He was strangled to death, the body being cut down about twenty minutes after the trap was sprung. Turner before the trap had been spruug gazed at the crowd about him unconcernedly and walked to bis death without any evidence of fear. Turner held a levee in the jail several days prior to the hanging, charging curious visit? ors to the jail five cents for a look of fifteen seconds, and calling to them to pass on and come up iu regular side-show style. He collected a considerable sum of money, which will be used in burying him. Oa one of these days the doomed man was peering through the bars across his window, and catching sight of his sister in the crowd, he said : "You look here, lister, I want a big fune? ral Friday, and yon want to see that there is no disappointment about it." "Go on, Albert," the w...

ALEXANDRIA. TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 5. Judging from telegraphic intelligence received from all parts of the country, the observance of the 4th of July as a national holiday was as genera! yesterday in all the States as it ever was before in the histoiy of the Union, and though spread-eagle? ism may not have been as great as it used to b?, owing to the wisdom more mature age his brought to the nation, the patriot? ism evoked, if not manifested so enthusias? tically and demonstratively, was doubtless as real and sincere, and as widespread, as that of any previous similar occasion. And there is good reason why it should have beeu so. This has become a great and a grand couutry, the just, pride of its own people and the wonder of those of all others, and now that all real cause of internecine trouble has been removed, there is no ap? parent reason why, if it but adhere to the wise policy it has observed in the past re? specting entangling foreign alliances, it should not soou take its sta...

TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 5. ThkSun in Apogee?On Saturday last, at 4 o'clock in tbe morning, the sun was in apogee, or, which meant? the same thing, the earth waa in aphelion. Tbe earth thou reached that point in her orbit when she waa at the greatest distance from the sun. She is now, in rouud numbers, 3,000,000 miles farther from the sun than she was on the 2d of January when in perihelion. The reason we do not have the coolest weather when the sun ia farthest away is because the sun'g rays fall perpendicularly upon the earth in mid-summer and obliquely in mid? winter?the intensity of the heat far over? balancing the difference in the distance. The heath doubtless tempered by the great? er distance of the central fire, and the north? ern temperate zone ib greatly favored in this respect. The sun appears smaller when he ia in apogee, for his actual diameter for every day in the year is recorded in the American Ephemeris. The diameter of the suu 1a 31' 32" when in apogee or at his great...

^^^^^^ WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY (J. Ok late the protectionists in the North have been stimulating the drooping hopes of th6irfollowers by asserting that the recent development of new industrial interests in the South bad been the means of effecting a revolution iu the sentiment of the people of this section upon the subject of the tariff, and that instead of being free traders, as formerly, the people of those Southern States iu which mining and manufacturing industries are growing are rapidly becom? ing advocates of protection. To show tho character of the foundation upon which the assertion referred to is made, it id only ne? cessary to eay that Senator Morgan, of Ala? bama, who is a candidate for re election, made a speech at the laying of the corner 8toue of a uew iron furnace iu his State, ou Monday lust, iu which he took the most de? cided free trade ground, demonstrating clearly that the iron intetesbsof Alabama need uo tar ill for their protection, that the facilities for the...

"ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 7. President Cleveland waa certainly born uoder a lucky Btar. There is no doubt iu the mind of any intelligent man, well informed of the real, true condition of tho feeling of the democracy of the South toward the President, that a large portion of that democracy ia disappointed, and many of them even dissatisfied with him. But the malignant sectional hatred man? ifested for him by the G. A. R. and the other Sjuth-haters of the North, simply because he has evinced a sentimental sympathy for the S juth, is more than sufficient to offset the causes of all the disappointment and dissatisfaction referred to, and will tend greatly to secure him not only a solid Sjuthern delegation in the next national democratic convention, but a solid South at the next Presidential election. S'OUK good Virginia democrats seem to be under the impression that all the dem ocrats of Virginia are bound in some way tc tho support of the Riddleberger bill. Such au iuijitessi...

THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 7. Jumped Out op a Balloon.?Prof. Thos. S. Baldwin jumped from a balloon at the fair grounds in Quincy, III., on the Fourth. Over 30,0?? people witnessed the perform? ance, which was the most daring and thrill? ing ever attempted by man. Baldwin as? cended to the height ot one mile, and then holding his parachute, launched himself in? to space. The parachute is an umbrella bbaped affair, with ribs of cord which are prolonged and fastened (o a ring, to which the aeronaut clings. The parachute is made of silk, and is eighteen feet in diameter. It waa attached to the netting of the balloon by a small cord, intended to break by the weight of the aeronaut. When the jump' was made the parachute was closed and the first 200 feet the aeronaut dropped like a rock. Then, as the parachute expanded, the speed became less rapid, and the aero? naut and his Btrange apparatus Heated steadily down like a bird. It was a grand und beautiful sight. The descent was ac? complished ...
