WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBEE 28. How Monkeys Eat Oysters.?A writer in Natu re gives the following description of the monkey's method of taking and eating oysters: In the islands of the Meigue arch? ipelago, the rocks left bare at the low tide are covered with oysters of different sizes, A monkey (probably the Macacus cynomol gus) which inhabits these quarters, prowls along shore when the sea is low, and opens the oysters attached to the rocks by strik? ing the upper shell with a stone until he has broken it. Then he extracts the mol lusk with his fingers or swallows it directly from the shell. Upon frightening these epicures away, the observer found that the stones that they left behind had been select? ed with a view to being easily grasped by the animal's fingers, and not with regard to heaviness. The fact is the more curious in that the rocks to which the oysters are at? tached emerge from mud, and the monkeys are obliged to procure the stones on the shore at some distance off In...

thursday evening, september 20. The Destructive Power of Toepedoks. Although the destruction of the Chinese corvette Yang Wo during the fight between the French and Chinese at Foochow has been almo3t forgotten no authentic report of the encounter has ever reached us. The account just given of the annihilation of the Chinese vessel by a close eyewitness is therefore doubly interesting. The writer says that the French liagship had two tor pedo boats attached to her. They were stationed on either side of her, at the gang? ways. This ship was about 300 yards below the Yang Wo. As soon as the firing com? menced both boata attacked the Chinese vessel. The first one fired her torpedo di? rectly under the Yang Wo's afte/ gangway ? starboard side. No damoge whatever v. i a done to the fhip ; but the officer in i hiirge of the torpedo boat was wounded in i be cheat by the roturn action of the tor? pedo. The other boat had in the meantime attacked the ship forward, little abaft the cathood, on...

SEPTEMBER-10._ Tue people of this country, certainly those of Virginia, have never been ho pros? perous anil contented as they were during the long lew tariff and democratic rule that existed previous to the war between Ihe States.

SATURDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 1. A Boa ina Sewer.?Some sewer men tnt t with a ttrange adventure while at work one night in one of the labyrinths of eubter rtnean Paris. As they were busily engaged in cleaning out that part of the metropolitan cloaca which is under the Boulevard de la Villette they suddenly heard a loud and prolonged sound of hissing, which some of them took to be the cries of a person in dis? tress, who had, perhaps, fallen into the drain at one of the open points. Redonnet, the foreman of the gang, thought, however, that the strange noise was cau=ed by evil? doers, who were probably hiding in the ?ewers from the police; bo he took up his t-hovel and marched boldly toward the spot whence the sounds proceeded. After hav? ing proceeded a considerable distance he saw by the dim light of the sewer lamps an enormous boa-constrictor coiled around one of the water ducts with its bead protruding toward him. Redonnet immediately stun tied the reptile with a vigorous blow from hi...

ALEXANDEIA. MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 3, Any POLITICAL party in Virginia other ttnii! the democratic party end the republi? can or Mahone party, must necessarily weaken the former.

The only possiblo way by which the euccee3 of a third party can ht> achieved is by drawing enough strength from the majority party to reduce it to a minority condition.

MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBEE 3. A Land of Promise.? When Alaska was purchased for $7,200,000 under the adminis? tration of Andrew Johnson, it wa3 general? ly supposed that we had bought a barren land. Twenty years of possession have not brought us as accurate information concern? ing our new acquisition as we might have expected In that time, but we know enough to assure us that wo made a good bargain with Russia. During the last three or four years astonishing discoveries have been made in Alaska by Government exploring parties and by private enterprise. The fish? eries are far more valuable than bad been supposed. Already a large business has been built up in canning fish. Fortunes have been made in furs and the prospects of that business are excellent. But the miner? al resources of Alaska constitute its chief at? traction. Iron of fine grade and coal in vast abundance are found. Of course there are great quantities of petroleum. Just enough prospecting has been done to show that the ...
