FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 24.
Letter from Culpeper.
[Correspondence of the Alexandria Gazette.]
Mitchell's Station, May 23.?The moet
insipid election ever held here \a progressing
to-day, and as all the old incumbents, ex?
cepting sheriff, are being voted for, and
there being no opposition?means no money,
no whiskey, hence quiet reigns in Warsaw.
Sberiffalty is special to fill the vacancy
caused hy the death of Mr. Benjamin Pul
liam, and his son Alfred is the only candi?
date. We had a spanking wind and rain
Btorm yesterday afternoon lasting about
thirty minutes, and fruit trees and weak
fences went down in it and the air became
cold enough to require fire to Bit by; the
Blue Ridge mountains showed a wbite face
this morning, and the thermometer marked
48 degrees in the shade. Fruits of all kind,
excepting apples, give promiee of a most
abundant yield?only frost is dreaded.
The mail and passenger accommodations
for this point, under the new schedule, is
perfectly abominable.
Weak-kneed and protection democrats,
and repudiating Virginians generally. muBt
be badly wounded when the old Gazette
opens with her Dorjg-Tom?as I hear con?
siderable squealing very frequently here?
abouts.
Our hearts are with you now and will be
to morrow during the ceremonies attending
the unveiling of the mooumont?it is full of J
significance?the time?the place?the sub?
ject?everything is of interest connected with
its being erected at Alexandria. Thistle.
VIRGINIA NEWS.
Joshua F. Ross, who a few months ago
k shot his uncle, George Hughes, and on Mon
V day last shot himself through the bead, died
at Gloucester last uigbt.
In Princess Anne county, on Wednesday
night the residence of the Rev. F.C. Clarke,
a Baptist minister, was burned, and Mr.
Clarke, his two daughters, and next oldest
son, and Miss Pullen a niece visiting him,
were consumed hy the ?ames. His wife,
with Miss Ella Bidgocd, the governess, and
twb children escaped. The fire was acci?
dental. ^_
Jurisdiction Over Arlington.?The
"Arlington Free State," as the United States j
reservation near Arlington Cemetery is call?
ed, has, as heretofore mentioned, been un?
der the jurisdiction of both tne United
States and of the Stale of Virginia, but, in
fact, under the government of neither. It
has two officials, United States Commission?
er Wormly, who has a commission from
Judge Hnghes, of the United States Court
of the Virginia District, and Constable Do?
rnas, who has a similar commission. The
present code of the "Free State" is the law
of necessity. Three cases of minor felony
brought before the Alexandria County Court
by Commonwealth's Attorney Clements
have been dismissed for want of jurisdic?
tion, but now a crime of greater magnitude
committed there will require attention. A
few days ago a colored man named Charles
M. Hill shot.Mary Jane Massey, colored.
The soldiers from Fort Myer brought Hill
to the Alexandria jail, but be has been car?
ried back to Arlington by Constable Domax.
On the death of the woman a serious ques?
tion of jurisdiction over the homicide case
will arise. The United States Court's juris
diction is not considered clear, and while
the State officers for the present decline jur
isdiction the code of Virginia declares, in
relation to Virginia lands ceded to the LTni
ted States, that the State court magistrates
or officers may take euch cognizsnee, ext
cute such process and discharpe ?ucb other
legal functions within the same as may not
be incompatible with the true intent and
meaning of the act of cession.
