j ?&g :|m %| ALEXANDRIA. THURSDAY EVENING. 8EPTEMBEB 22. A kormee resident of Alexandria, recent? ly here on a visit after an absence of five years, said he was struck with the great im provement that bad been made, both in tho large number of new houses, and in the ap peuranceof the old ones, and that though he now lives in what is spoken of as a grow iog city, he did not think the improvement there, in the same line, during tho tarne time, had been any greater than hero. He di 1 think, however, that better streets and sidewalks would greatly increase the at? tractions of the city, and be more likely to draw population and money. There is uo doubt that the city has increased in popula? tion and improved in appearance during the lastfivo years, and as little doubt that an improvement of its streets and sidowalks would be highly conducive to an increased ratio of improvement during the next Gve in respect of both tho condition* referred to. A wise ami economical system of street ...

FBI DAY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 23. As ex-President Davis is not ubiquitous, and cannot, therefore, on the same day, at? tend both the Confederate reunion at Ma con and the laying of tho corner-stone of tho Lee monument at Eicbmond, next mouth, and as large numbers of the survi? vors of those who wore the gray have al? ready made their arrangements to greet him at the former city, and as there is no insu? perable objection to changing the day for the celebration at the latter, it is hoped the Buggesttd change may be made. If it be desirable that a crowd be present at Rich? mond when the corner-stone referred to be laid, there is do doubt that that object can be best attained by changing the day ; for no matter how profound may be the respect for the great hero of the lost cause, in whose memory the monument will bo erected, there are thousands who would bo attracted to Richmond to -;ee and to honor tho man who gave that cbieitain his commission, and who had such confidence in him that he...

FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 23. SUPEKSTITIOUS NeGBO COASTMEX.?No reward could induce the negro 6urfmen on the Xorth Carolina coast to walk along the bsach at Dight, especially during a etorm, when the lightning ia flashing and the huge white capped breakers come sputtering in on the sandy beach. They imagine tbey can see in the phosphorescent light the forms of eailors who were lost at sea, riding in astride of the huge billows. On account of this superstition it has been found im possible to induce negro coastmen to euter tbe life saviog service, no matter how well adapted they may be for the w ?rk. The odious night patrol along tbe desolate sea? shore is what tbey object to. The average seashore negro would almost rather die thau encounter the vague form of a departed sailor i man in the surf or on tbe beach.?Brooklyn Citizen. _^ ^_ There is & Scandinavian tradition to the effect that kissing was first introduced into England byRowena, the beautiful daughter | of Hongist.

? i MONDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBEB2G. To show the radically wrong ideas of democratic government taught by the civil torvioe policy now invogue.it is only ne ?e&-ary to mention the fact that when Gen.

The only public servants in this country are the servants of j the people, and when a man, once a general in the army, and of such civil standing a* to be appointed to tho important and lucre live office of postmaster at Boston, doesn't think it a loss of self respect to avow him Balf a bervant of one man, anil when that avowal passes by almost unnoticed, the ef feet of the teaching referred to upon the people at largo can well bo imagined, and in emphasized by the postmaster's other re? mark, thut h...

Mhbone'd committee room at the Capitol, and addressing the General familiarly, said: "Mahone, we don't want to be throwing away our money, but if you really have a fighting chance of carrying your State nest fall, we'll let you have all the money you wanf." Soon after that the newspapers published an item to the effect that Senators Cameron, Plumb, and other republican Sen? ator?, had been on a visit to Oen.

In addition to this the newspapers have also recently stated that the millionaire Senator Stanford, of California, has intimated an in ?ention of assisting the General, and the General himself has told people that he has all the mouey he wants for his campaign.

TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEM BEE 27. A Terrible Stoby of Arctic Suffer ing.?Full details have been received of the rescue of a Bailor named Vincent, who is the only survivor of the whaling bark Napo? leon, lost in the Arctic seas three years ago. The rescue of Vincent was effected by the efforts of the revenue ship Bear, in an In dUn village near Xatarin. Vincent was in a deplorable condition when rescued. The miserable Indian clothing, which partly covered him, was tied upon bis body in order to keep it from falling off, and his head was shaved in Indian style. When properly cl >tbed and nourished the unfor? tunate man was able to give a history of bis terrible sufferings. When the whaling bark Napoleon, of which he was one of the crew, was cru-hed in the ice all bands took to the boats without procuring provisions of any description. Soon after leaving the bark the boats became separated, the one in which Vincent was and another going to? gether, each of these boats containing nine ...
