ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. AUGUST 25. In thk matter of the employment of ad ditiooal counsel in the case of the United Si sites against Mr. Stanford, republican Senator from California, who refuses to pro? duce the books of the Central Pacific Bail road Company, which books, it is asserted, will prove that that company has robbed the government and bribed Congressmen, the President has needlessly subjected him? self to a great deal of utterly unmerited cen sure. As this government is cf, by and for tho pe>ple, it3 proceedings should be subject to their daily inspection, and nothing done by it should be concealed from them. Secro cy naturally begets suspicion; suspicion soon bt comes formulated into injurious ru? mors, and such rumors, no matter how false they m ty be, [:o to some places whero tiulh will nover overtake him. The President when naked by tho railroad commissioners whether or not thoy should employ addi? tional counsel, responded affirmatively, but as that ...

?-i IM ! I ALEXANDRIA. friday evening. august 2?;. Several of the recent State republican coriVentioDS in the North Lave revived the old cry for a "f.-ee vote and a fair count in the South." Before any more do so it would be well for their members to read what ex. Governor Cameron of this State, a republi? can, says upon the subject of a free vote a;:d a fair count in the republican Conventions in Virginia under tbo management of Gen? eral Mahone, the leader of the Virginia re publicans. For their benefit we quote the following from tho ex-Governor's remarks: "There is nowhere, in my judgment in the confines of the United States an organ ization so autccratic as that which vests in the executive committee of the Vir? ginia republican party. It not only exer cises a power absolute and unquestionable, without conference or consultation, but transmits that, power to its local subordi nates. A free ballot and a fVir count,which form the corner stone of tho republican pint lorm, know no ...

FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 26. To Keep the Water Cool.?There are many water coolerB and other devices for keeping water fresh and pnre for the day's drinking, but none are of more real merit than the one described below. A common, unglazed earthenware jar holds the water and it placed in a keg or small barrel, suf? ficiently large to give a space of four or five inches all around the jar. The intervening space is filled with nice clean sand to with io. an inch of the top of the jar. A sufficient amount of sand should be placed in the bottom of the keg to raise the top of the jar to a level with the top of the keg. The s&nd is thoroughly wet once, after which the leavings from the dipper will keep the sand damp. When filled once a day, the j*r will supply good water for drinking pur? poses all day. This contrivance, though simple, will furnish water nearly as palata? ble and certainly much more wholesome than ice water.?American Agriculturist. -!--s>?*m Saved by th...

SATURDAY EVENING, AUGU8T 27. The Southern Flags. BY H. M. CLABKSOK, A. ST., M. D. Let these flags be furled forever, Just as when we laid them down. Emblems of a vain endeavor, Duty done without its crown. Covered as they are with glory, Let them moulder into dust, Emblematic of their story. Emblematic of onr trust. Let those braves who charged upon them, Men who met us in the fight; They who by their valor won them, Lot them keep them?theirs by right. Let them keep them, torn and tattered, Tokens of the tears they cost; Symbols of a people scattered, Emblems of the cause they lost. Emblems of a people dashing Down the tide of Time to die: Meteor-like, in splendor flashing, Flaming 'cross the Southern sky 1 When before did such a nation, Born alone of hopes and prayers, Freeiy offer such libation, Pouring out its blood and tears'.' Not old Borne's heroic ages, Not e'en Greece's grandest days; Not tho world's historic pages Furnish such a theme for praise. Classic Greece yet tells th...
