?^^^^^ ALEXANDEIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING. JULY 20. The death of R. M. T. Hunier removes another oue of the Virginians who took prominent parts in their State's atl'airs be? fore and during the civil war. Tbe num? ber of these men is now so sina'l that tbe death of any ouo of them makes a notice? able reduction ia their ranks, but tbe death of none will be more noticed, or revive more memories of tho times in which bo was a prominent actor, than that of Air. Hunter, wbo was tbe Seuator from Virginia when tbe U. S. .Senates was composed of tho brains, ami not of the money, of tbe coun? try, aud who, when his State became a part of the Southern Confederacy, was the ublo Semetary of State of that short lived nation.

%ttXN&M teilte. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY 20. Not Allowed to Work.?I have four bods, all free-born Americans, so-called, and all now grown to manhood. I tried to give them trades as they respectively reached the proper age, but in every instance I was forbidden to do so by ihe laws of the trades. All four of them are now men, but not one of them was permitted to learn a trade in the land where they were born, and which they have been taught to call a land of free? dom. The oldest got a job as fireman on the railroad, and, after a few years, managed to steal the trade of an engineer ; the next drifted oil" to that unde?nable country known a3 "the mountains," and there he is wasting away his life digging holes in the ground searching for silver and gold. The next picked up a book and taught himself the short-hand trade ; ha gets twice as much wages as I ever got with my wheelbarrow and shovel; the youngest gets $1 a day in a store in the humblest capacity, but hopes to work up in ti...

*u im %t AI, KX?NDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 21. Tu k dkm and for a reduction of the sur? plus in the Treasury is so general and wide* spread and urgent that tho protectionists, whose policy continues it, see that some? thing must be done. But tho remedy they propose ia not what the people want. Their proposition is to aholish the internal reve? nue system, which imposes a tax on liquor, banks and tobacco. The tax on tobacco should no removed, as there is no more rea? son for taxing a Virginia farmer's tobacco crop tb in a Minnesota farmer's wheat crop; but how tho removal of the tux on whiskey and banks will help the poor people, ia what only u protected manufacturer, or his agent, can tell. The best way to reduce the sur? plus h to stop the moans by which it is amassed, and that is to abolish the tariff on raw material and the necessaries of life, such as salt, medicine, clothing;, fuel, silvan hardware, pottery, etc. People rieb onough to havo dealings with hunk?, and to drink w...

Their feelings aie so wrought up on the subject that they portray Alexandria as a city possessing bu perior advantages for the perpetration of murderous crimes, and where the maximum enjoyment of such crimes can be attained with thu minimum of risk, so far as tue law is concerned. While newspaper verdicts are easily reached, they are by no means in? fallible, und are usually based upon ex parte evidence.

SATURDAY EVENING. JULY 2::. PR0FFE3S0R LANGSTON, one of the mosl intelligent colored men in the country, is in favor of Gov. Lee for the second place on the uext natioual democratic ticket. A quarter of a century has now elapsed Bince the war. That war is as well over now as il ever will be, and the South just us loyal as it will bo when its present younc meu shall have grown old. As the republican is a sec? tional party, there is some reason why its candi lates for both places on its national tickets should continue to be taken from the North. But why the democratic party, that is if its assumption of being the national party of the country have any real basis, should continue the same uilo is hard, if not impossible, to tell, especially in view of the fact that nearly the whole of its effective strength, in tbe electoral college, is derived from the South. If the Northern democrats be loo selfish to allow the South even the second place on Ibe next na? tional democratic ticket, or...

SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 23. A Pathetic Tale.?Thomas Abbott, of St. Louis, recently disappeared. He is about 30. His family live in New York and are wealthy. He was educated for the Methodist ministry and had a church in Canada. He married a girl whose home was near Toronto, and by his marriage he displeased his family and as a result was cast oil". He came to St. Louis with hin bride about five weeks ago and got a job as a silver plater, having learned the trade be? fore he became a preacher. They stuggled along in poverty and distress until about ten days ago, when the woman died as the doctor said, from cholera morbus. Next day the husband found a letter written by her before she died, in which she declared her intention of taking her life by poison, and begging him to follow her. The let? ter is a lengthy and pathetic one, setting forth all their trouble and accusing herself of being the cause of it all. The second day after her death he disappeared, and the next day his employer ...
