ALEXANDRIA. MONDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 10. Thb Richmond Diapatch says tbe judge of the U. 3. Circuit Court fov Virginia, by his latest decision, "has undertaken to do what, thirty yeaia ago, all the justices of the Supreme Court of the Vtiited States would not have attempted to do." That, probably, is a fact; but in it lies the gist of the Virginia debt question. Tbe U. S. Su? premo Court bas decided that Virgiui?

ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBERS._ General and local assemblies of knights cf labor demand that foreigners shall b prohibited from holding lands in this coun? try, and Congress passes laws to enforce that demand; but the people of Idaho, through their Governor, protest again?: such laws, fur the good reason that bcinp i?o poor to develop the resources of that Tinitory tbBroselves, they have to depend upon foreigners to supply the requisite cap Hal for that purpose. All of which shows that ut-itber the knights nor Congress pos pess the n qnisite information to enable them properly to make demands aud pass lawn for the people of the whole country. Mayor HEWITT, who is familiar with bo'h the theory and practice of municipal governments, when asked the other day what, in'his opinion, was the best sort of city government, replied : "The best plan would be to give unlimited power to an honest, capable roan."

WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBEE 12. To Do Away with the Bell Cobd.? Tha present way of signaling the engineer cf a locomotive is with a bell cord on a pas? senger train. On a freight train there is no way of eigualing. But two local men of t.ractical experience have invented a per? fect apparatus for communication by elec? tricity between the engineer aod the conduc? tor, which will do away with the bell cord. The principle of the apparatus U the same as the electric call bell commonly used in hotels. All there is of the apparatus is a wire running through the train, a bell in the cab, a battery and something to close tbe ?ircuit. It is worked on an open cir? cuit, and a battery on the engine supplies tbe electricity. Tbe wire runs through the bose which operates tbe air brake, and whenever the hose i3 connected the wire is connected also. A small rope, running the length of the car near the ceiling serves to close tbe circuit and ring the bell. Oa long passenger trains there is a great ...

FRIDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 14. The result of the election in Newark, N. J., last Tuesday, has apparently relieved the New York democrats of a most depress ing fear. Tbey are now hopeful of success. Their late fear resulted from the possible strength of the labor vote, but, as Newark wa? a great labor centre, and where the la? bor party expected a decisive victory, gave the lnbor ticket less than two tbousnnd out of a vote of twenty-five thousand, end elected the democratic ticket by a satisfac? tory vote, the fear of a labor vote in-New York sufficiently large to ofJfeet the loss the republicans will probably sustain by the prohibition vote, has been to a gieat degree dissipated, and it is now thought the demo? cratic Stato ticket will be elected.
