saturday evening oct. 7, 185*3.
Even the worst and most general financial depressions are only tempora? ry. There i.s always a reaction that is more permanent. The existing low tide j a business and the consequent deprecia? ted price of property must soou be fol? lowed by a revival of activity in all the lines of trade, and an advance in real estate will be tbe necessary result. Of all the cities in the country none affords a better opportunity for profiting by the confidently expected coming of bet? ter times than Alexandria. The capi? ta] o: the nation must rapidly increase in size and population.and tbe overflow of the latter must come here, as a great deal of it has already done. The re? cent large special edition of tbe Ga? zette, which has been circulated in all parts of the. country, opened t he eyes of strangers to the unexcelled, if equal? ed, advantages possessed by Alexandria for profitable investments, either for speculative or business purposes, and its attractions as a place of residence cannot be over estimated. Numei ous in? quiries from strangers concerning the city have been the legitimate result. Tteal estate here is now at low wale;1 mark,and wise investers will not allow tbe favorable opportunity to escape. Mr. O'eeeeaxl says "it was bis in? tention at the time be was nominated for Cioveruor to resign, so that his seat in Congress could be filled at the regu? lar election :u November, but condi? tions have .-ince changed, and comjdi Cations have arisen which have caused him to halt iu the fulfillment of that intention." ft would have been much better for Mr. OTerrall if be had not halted in the execution of bis wise in-j tantion. The wiser democrats of the State did not favor Air. OTerralfs nomination, and unfortunately for bis par.y.as well as for himsetf,his refusal to resign bis seat in the U. S. House of Representatives, so that it might be filled at the general election next mouth, and thus save the State the ex? pense of a special election, has not in? duced them to change their minds. Man IS born to trouble as the sparks fly upward, and this is as true of asso? ciations of men as it is of individuals. The late trouble in the Alexandria v lub, therefore, is not at all strange. Bui no trouble was ever more expedi tiously, practically and satisfactorily settled to all the parties concerned. The cause of it was a common one?a difference between the wets and the drys, and tbe former, though in the mi? nority, having offered to purchase the entire outfit, their offer was accepted on tbe instant .and the whole atlair was clos? ed, and all in one evening. The mem? bers of both sides are w ise men in their generation, and the example they have set is one that other associations simi? larly troubled, if wise, will follow. There is no sense in ignoring not on'y pateut.but glaring facts, and when such reputable democrats as Captain Garuett in Culpeper county, and Gen. Imboden in Wasbingtoo,are running for the legislature against the regular democratic nominees, and when Mr. Cock leaves bis old party to head tbe ponu'ists.and Geoeral Iiossergoe3 to bis support, and when the democratic can? vassers say it is almost impossible for them to evoke any enthusiasm in their audiences, the assertion that the demo? cratic State ticket will be elected by the largest majority such a ticket ever received, seems to conservative people to be little short of silliness. The New York democracy, in State convention assembled,has endorsed the national democratic plaJ form,which de? clared for the repeal of the federal elec? tion laws and for that of the silver and McKinley acts. Tbe democrats cfXew York are like their leader, Senator Hill, who '"is a democrat." FROM WASHINGTON. [Correspondence of the Alexandria Gazette.] Washington. D. C, Oct. 7. Congressman Jerry Simpson, w ho has been canvassing in Virginia, has re? turned. He says that so far as he has seen, there is not the slightest enthu? siasm among the democrats ihere,but the populists manifest the greatest atnouut of it wherever he has addressed them. He- says his party is handicapped in Virginia by lack of organization but that arrangements have been made bv which their tickets will be distributed at every polling place in the State on election day. He also says they lack money, and that he and Mr. Pence have bad to pay their own expenses. Congressman Oates of Alabama, tbe greatest anti-populist fighter in his State, when asked to-day if he would speak in Leesburg, Virginia, next Mon? day, replied that he so intends, as he wants to tell the people there some hard and plain common sense. Representative Meredith and Mr. Krafft of Alexandria, hunted up Mr. Quincy, ex-Assistant Secretary of State, before he left yesterday, and succeeded in obtaining an interview with him relative to Mr. KraflVs application for a German consulship. Mr. Quincy was extremely courteous and went over the case with them at length, and stated that tbe press of business attending his official connection with the State De? partment and the pressure for appoint? ments to more important consular posi- i tions had prevented action inMr.Krafll's I c<\se, which he viewed with favor. He EaiJ he would recornmend a favorable consideration of the matter to h? suc cesor in office. Basil Lockwood, the negro who msed a ladder to the window of Ford's Theatre by which some of the em? ployees reached the ground after the fall*of that building, was appointed mes? senger in the War Department to-day. The Presidential family moved from the White House to-day to "Woodley," Mr. Cleveland's suburban residence. Mrs. Cleveland and her babies aud Mrs. Perrine, her mother,, will remain at "Woodley," for several weeks in order that Mrs. Cleveland may fully regain her strength for the winter season's so? cial duties. The President will pass his nights in the country and drive to the White House in the mornings. An evidence of the faith some people here have in the early future growth of Alexandria is afforded by the fact that certain people who either have money or can get it, are now considering plans for the construction of two double-end steam ferry boats, with triple expan? sion engines, with a carrying ca? pacity of twenty carriages and sis hun? dred "passeugers, at a cost of $85,000 each, lor a new ferry Hue between this c ty aud Alexandria, to make half hourly trip3, and to run until 12 o'clock a' night, and through the ice, no matter h >w thick. Among those interested in the project are some of the stockhold? ers in the Norfolk line. I Fifty-tWJ fourt!i-class postmasters were appointed to-day, of whom 22 will till the places of removed republicans. There were no changes in Virginia. The tenth week of the extraordinary session ofCongress and the seventh week of the Senate debate on the silver-pur? chase repeal bill will commence on Monday, leaving it still as uucertaiu as ever when the bill will come to a decisive vote. One phase of the situa? tion in the Senate is thus described by one of its members : "There are eight republican Senators?Messrs. Teller, Wolcolt, Jones, of Nevada, Michel I, Dubois, Pcttigrew ami Power?who are for silver, opposed not only to the re? peal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman law, but to any compromise which would not provide for silver at least as liberally as that law. There are four republicans opposed to rc-]?-:d unless some compromise measure is substituted for the Sherman law that will recognize silver as a money metal ?Cameron, Manderson, Perkins, and Uausbrougb. In addition to these the four populists, of course, are opposed to t'.'f repeal of the Sherman law?Peller, Stewart, Allen ami Kyle, Irby being accounted a democrat. These are an? tagonists of the administration from outside the democratic ranks. The democratic Seuators nre divided, the majority being opposed to uncondition? al repeal. Therefore, if Pie.-ident Cleveland's position regarding the Sher? man law is to be sustained, it must be by tlw votes of the 25 republican Sena? tors understood to be committed to re? peal. Now they are confronted by this question. Shall they wait for tin democratic majority to agree upon a compromise, or .-ball they suggest one, or shall they stand squarely for uncon? ditional repeal ? Between these lines of policy the republicans are halting, but i; is believed the majority are in favor of allowing the responsibility of meeting the .?ituation, to rest ou the shoulders of the democratic majority. The impression to-day is thut if the dem? ocrats can hold a quorum, the uncondi? tional repeal bill will be passed, for the reasons that it is the ardent wish of the President that it shall be, and that his term of office will not evpire for three years and a half. Senator Harris this morning intro? duced a resolution providing for the appointment of a committee of live Scuatois to investigate theFord Theatre disaster and report whether the gov? ernment should compensate the sutler ers by that disaster lor the injuries sus? tained by them. Under the resolution, if it be decided that they should be con> peusated, the comm:ttee is directed to investigate each individual case, and r-port the amount of compensation that should be allowed to each person. The Secretary of the Navy received a cable dispatch from Captain Picking, the commauder of the United States cruiser Charleston, at Rio. this morning, as follows: "Admiral Mello having been informed that the government would dismount guns in the city, said he would net again fire upon the place." This undoubtedly means that the threatened renewal of the bom? bardment of Kio Janeiro has been abandoned, and it is supposed that the truce between Mello and Peixotto was arranged by the commanders of the foreign vessels stationed in the harbor. The District of Columbia Commis? sioners have not yet made their report to the Senate District of Columbia committee on the bill to allow the Alex? andria and Mount Vernon Electric Railroad Company to build a bridge across the Potomac at Arlington, but if they had, no action would have been taken upon it, as the railroad's attor? ney, Col. Anderson, has requested that the hill shall not be considered until his return from Chicago, next month. Secretary Herbert denied to-day a sensatioual report that the Navy De? partment was investigating the origin of charges made that the new cruiser New York was of faulty construction and built of poor material. He had uever heard such an investigation even suggested; it certainly had not been in? augurated and there was no truth iu the charges if any such had been made. The New York was one of the best built ships in the Navy. Mr. Bankhead, chairman of the House of Representatives committee, to whom the selection of a site for the proposed new government printing office has been referred, says the com? mittee has inspected the several sites that have been offered, and will meet oa Tuesday next to determine which one shall be selected. He says that so f.ir there has been no expression of the committee or any member of it to indi? cate whnt lot will be chosen. The Ma hone-Windsor lot is one of those that have been offered. It is three or four blocks north of the present government printing office. The conference between the secreta? ry of the Virginia democratic St??- com? mittee and the Virginia congressional delegationyc-terday eveningdid not ma? terialize, as the arrival of the secretary at the place of meeting was delayed. He subsequently met three or four of the members of the delegation and re? quested them to induce certain good stumpers among their congressional associates to go to Virginia next Mon? day and make speeches at the different court houses. They complied with his request, but met with little encourage? ment, as every member is expected here at noon on Tuesday, when the vote on the bill to repeal the federal election laws will be taken. Archer Brooks was appointed post? master at Williamsburgh, Va., to-day. NEWS OF THE DAY.

A letter dated September 29 from Rio -ays that, by order of the govern? ment, an aitempt was made under cov? er of the British flag to blow up an in? surgent man-of-war. The plot was dis? covered in time and was frustrated by the Britisli scpuadron. A telegram from Kio says that during the last bombard? ment a shell struck the London and Brazilian Bank. The British minister advised the bank otiicials and other business men to close their doors. During the argument in the Rev. W. II. H. Powers divorce case at Towson, Md., yesterday, Mr. Robert Roddy, counsel for Mrs. Powers, called Mr. Wm. S. Keech, counsel for Mr. Pow? ers, a liar. Mr. Keech's son made a dash for Roddy, and for a time there was a lively scene. During the argu? ment Mr. Roddy made this statement: "The vestry of Trinity Church have taken the position of rendering moral and financial support to a man who is capable of casting aspersions upon the character of a defenceless woman, and who can then come into this court and plead his poverty to avoid giving her the means wherewith to defend her? self." _ _ VIRGINIA NEWS.

Saunders, pastor of the Presbyterian church of Freder I icksburg, and president of the Freder icksburg Collegiate Institute. The Mary Washington monument has arrived at Fredericksburg, and the work of removing it fvom the depot to the site in the northwestern part of the city has been in progress for several days. The time for the unveiling has not yet been named. An interesting programme will be arranged for tbe oc? casion. Noel C. Dyer, a clerk in the offices of the Norfolk and Western railroad, at Roanoke, was fatally stabbed in the neck yesterday by David H. Mitchell during a quarrel. Dyer went into Mitchell's grocery store to settle an ac? count of $14.03. He accused the latter of slanderiug him. A quarrel resulted, the lie was passed and the stabbing followed. Mitchell gave himself up and is in jail. Dyer was at one time in the real estate business in Roanoke. He leaves a wife and child. Mitchell is a young man. Baxtor Holts, colored, was yester? day acquitted in the County Court at Lexington of the charge of criminal as? sault on Mrs. Y. A. East, of Raphine, in Rockbridge county, some time in June last, the woman failing to give date. The trial was held behind clos? ed doors, and no one permitted to en? ter except those interested. Mrs. East is a white woman of some thirty-five years, has two or three pretty, inter? esting children, and is a widow of a few years. Her husband was a highly respectable farmer. She comes from a good family, and was carefully raised, and is of a sound mind. Demented.?Physicians in Washing? ton yesterday made an examination into the mental condition of the Rev John T. James, the whisky smasher, at the request of Sanitary Officer Frank". The physicians agreed that his cont i tion was such that he should be con? fined in an asylum for fear of doiDg himself or others serious bodily injury. Rev. Chanier and other friends, who sympathise with Mrs. James, interested themselves yesterday, ard agreed after the examination to see that he was re? turned f ? h's former home in Loudoun county.

Valley Virginian, " ? j FIFTY-THIRD CONGRESS. washington. Oct. 7, 1S93. senate. j Mr. Wolcott (rep. Col.) offered th'n i following resolution, which went over ! till Monday : Resolved, That the Senate commit | tee on finance he instructed to report a bill for the coinage of gold and silver in accordance with the policy set forth in the bill reported by the* committee August 2Sth, 1893, being House of Rep Ben tali ves bill No. l.fJL'nis refers to ttie declaratory section of the Voorhets bill in respect to the parity of the gold and silver dollars.) Mr. Harris (dem. Tenn.) offered a res? olution for tho appointmeut of :\ select committee of five Senators to investi? gate the Ford's Theatre disaster. Referred. The silver purchase repeal bill was theu taken up, and Mr. Vooihees, chairman of the finance committee, said: "I desire this morning to state, in the hearing of the Senate and of the country, that on Wednesday next, af? ter the meeting of the Senate, I shall ask it to continue in session until a vote is taken on the pending measure ; and I shall ask aud expect Senators to maintain a quorum fur the transaction oi business until the end is reached of this protracted struggle. I might say more, but more is not necessary. I give tbis notice in order that Senators may govern themselves accordingly in the performance of the duty which they owe to the public." Mr. Roach, democrat, of North Da? kota, addressed the Senate in favor of tho repeal of the Sherman act. but ex pressed a desire that there should be some legislation in connection with it that would recognize silver as legal tender money. The people whom be represented were, he said, deeply in? terested in the question and it was his duty to give voice to their sentiments. No one objected to the repeal of the Sherman act: but the real contention in the Senate was between immediate re? peal, with subsequent possible legisla? tion affecting silver, on the one side, and actual legislation, previous to and iu connection with repeal, on the other side. With the latter class he Lad the honor to coincide. He asked for some legislation in connection with repeal that would recognize the use of silver as legal tender money, and its continu? ed coinage. Mr. Roach was followed by Mr. Al? len, populist, of Nebraska. A sugges? tion to procure a senatorial audience for him was made by Mr. Stewart, re? publican, of Nevada; but Mr. Allen said he did not want Senators to hear him. "All right," said Mr. Stewart, "but if they were here they would learn something." '?They will learn something whether they are here or not," Mr. Allen re? marked; and then he went on with his speech against the repeal bill. house. Ten democrats and twelve republi? cans were in the chamber when the House met to-day. Mr. Hicks, republican, of Pennsyl? vania, denied the statement attributed to him yesterday in the press that he had declared that the Senate was the laughing stock of the country, and that the Tucker bill was intended to humil? iate the President. The federal election bill was then taken up. Mr. Everett, democrat, of Massachu? setts, did not deny the constitutional power of Congress to pass the laws, but he did not believe that it had the moral right to do so. The same cor ruptiou at elections had gone on under these laws as had gone on before the time of their passage. The laws were impotent and inefficient, and they should be removed from the statute books. Granting that Congress had the right and power to pass these laws, granting the efficiency of them, he would still repeal them, because he was a union man; because Massachu? setts was a union state; and he wanted every vestige of these laws swept away (applause). He wanted to wipe from J the statute books the last relic of sec? tional spirit. He would remove every law that grew out of the war. Mr. Grosvernor, republican, from Ohio, said that Massachusetts would not permit her distinguished son to say that that great State was in favor of the repeal of the 13th, 14th and 15th amendmen?\o the constitution. And that was the position taken by the gen? tleman from Massachusetts. He ridi? culed the Chicago platform, and thought that it should be referred to a j master in chancery to find out wuat in the name of God it did mean anyhow. He went on to ridicule the democratic party for its demoralized condition. There was, he said, revolution iu one wing of the Capitol and demoralization in the other. Mr. Hepburn, republican, of Iowa, defended the election laws, which he ! contended gave every voter in the country the right to vote as be pleased. The pending bill was but the prelude of an attempt to overturn the whole fabric of the government. The Lucania Beats the Record.? The Cunard steamship Lucania arrived off the Sandy Hook lightship at 10:05 last night. This beats the record for transatlantic vovages held by the In man steamer Paris, by 50 minutes, the Lucaoia's time being 5 day, 13 hours and 25 minutes. The Cunard Company sent the Lucania to the dock just be? fore sailing and had her propellers altered, so as to give them a pitch more conducive to speed. On the ruu the Luncania averaged nearly twent3'-one miles an hour. The distance is 2,787 miles. The best previous record was held by the Paris, which made the pas-1 sage in 5 days 14 hours and 24 minutes.' TO-DAY'S TELEGRAPHIC NEWS The Vigilant Wins the Ilacc. New York, Oct. 7.?To-day was the date fixed for the second of the series of five races for the America cup, but t!ie committee decided that Thursday's race should be resailed to-day. There fore the course to-day will be the .-am ? as that sailed Thursday ; that is, fifteen miles to leeward and return. This, with the wind holding from the same direction, will made the distance to be covered about forty miles, the extra ten miles being added through the yachts being compelled to beat to wiud ward. Thursday's lluke does not ap? pear to have dampened the enthusi? asm of those interested in the races. As nearly as large a fleet of ocean steamers, steamboats, tugs and yachts as was out Thursday followed the racers to-day.

Well, he has the (mis)fortune to represent a section im? mediately adjacent to Washington, and his constituents actually worry him so that he has no peace" from the time that he lands iu Washington until he leaves. He lives at his home in Vir? ginia, and during the sessions of Con? gress comes to Washington every morning. He is invariably met at the train by au army of office seekers from his district, who gather around him the i moment he arrives, and worry him to ! death. He has lately adopted a ruse whereby he avoids them. He has ob? tained permission from the master of traius for 'his' train to slow up just out? side of the depot and he debarks there and makes a short cut for the Capitol through the Botanical Gardens.
