AX EXANDBIA. PBIDAY EVENING, JULY 8._ The loss of respect is soon followed by the loss of authority, and if the G. A. R. and the other unpatriotic citizens become im? pressed with the belief that their threats cuu deter the President from the execution of his arrauged plans, and prevent him from visitiug dirl'erent parts of the country, it will not be long before the idea enters their trains that they, and not the elected execu? tive-, are the head of the government. If the G. A. K. can prevent the President, the highest officer of the government, from vis? iting St. Louis, they certainly can prevent any and all other citizens of the, couutiy from going there. The government there? fore has ceased to he a free one. The Pres? ident is commander in-chief of the army, an 1,after the threat of the G. A. K. should, for the sake of his couutry, and of all the other people in it, and of all lovers of free institutions throughout the world, have gone to St. Louis, and, in case of the at? te...

_ I *W: W %? if a ? saturday evening, july 0. The treatment Mr. Cleveland lias re? ceived from the G. A. ri? for his recen! manifestation of sentimental kindness for the South, has gone a long way toward off? setting the democratic disappointment and dissatisfaction produced in this section by the civil service and mugwump policy of bis administration. It has tended in no small degree to make tho South, in which signs of political disintegration had become plainly discemable, not only solid again for the democrats, but solid in its support of President Cleveland for renomination. If Mr. Blaine or Mr. Sherman, or any other one of the Northern republican aspirants for the nextll'residency, had been treated by the Confederate voterans as Mr. Cleve? land has been by the G. A. K , that treat? ment, and not unnaturally, would have tended strongly to make the North a unit in bis favor. Like causes produce like effects, in the South as in the Norlb. But?and this is a question that not only ...

?! exautoni <?mttt. SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 5?. Letter from Loudoun. (Correspondence of the Alexandria Gazette,) Lkesburg, July Sth, 1887.?A recent trip through the county in the company of one of Alexandria's young and enterprising citi? zens enabled us to see much of the lately harvested wheat and the growing crops. The former is really almost a failure ; any thing like an average yield being out of the question. The oat crop, however, looks well, while corn and grasB are flourish? ing. The country west of the Catoctin moun? tains never looked better. City people seem to appreciate it, for every village and many country houses are full of them. Our neigh? bor, Hamilton, looks like a young city in the afternooD, her main thoroughfare being crowded with vehicles and pedestrians en? joying the breezes from the mountains. We found the roads firm, and the general ap? pearance of country and village denoting prosperity. Our own town is improving, work has commenced on the Town...

TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 12. AXOBLIC Visitobs.?From the northwest part of Macon county.

Mr. Samuel Phillips, a well-known farmer, waa at work in his field, three miles west of La Plata, on the afternoon of May :!0. Within a few rods bi3 eleven-year-old son Charley was also at work with a hoe. Suddenly the boy cried out, then ran forward a little way, and, stumbling over his hoe, fell to the ground. He continued looking up into the air and stretched his hands upward. The father at ouco ran to him and in? quired the cause of his action. The little fellow was crying in a heart-broken matter and sobbed out: "Ob, it was mamma ! it was mamma !'' Not understanding what he meant, the father asked for an explanation. Charley related that while working he had been attracted by sweet music in the air above him, more lovely than ho had ever heard before. On ...

In that letter Mr. Vilas says. "The fraternity which will advance the usefulness of postal clerks is the common devotion to duty and the com? mon patriotic pride which animate every good citizan to strive to honor the country which intrusts its business to his hands, by a just subordination to its discipline and laws and a faithful performance of his du? ties..

"Didn't you ever hear that before ? Every time you meet a red headed girl you see a white horse." Haifa block further another red headed girl was met. "Where's your white horse now?-' asked the reporter. "There's one turning the next corner,"' he replied. And sure enough, around the corner came a white horse drawing a dray. "They never fail, I tell yon. I have been saying 'Here's a red-headed girl and there's a white horse' for fifteen years. I've never got left yet." After parting, the reporter met one more red-headed girl, and after lookinc for the white horse was not surprised to see a car pass drawn by two of them.
