The Agrlcaltaral Meeting at Alexandria Friday .Mght The citiien? meeting on Friday night, sayi the Oaietta, for the purpose of adopting measures for furthering the objects of the Potomae. V.M.. V_ M iVUUlUUI BIIU V C?I ?DJ /l^I IVUIIUI ! UUUIOIJ} DJ a subscription on the part of the city to the Society, to enable it to hold a fair the coining fall, *u not as numerously attended as was expected, though towards the close the nnaiber present had very perceptibly increased. At 8} o'clock, Isaac Kell called to the chair W. 11. Fowl*, and, on motion of the same gentleman, Edgar Snowden, jr., wm appointed aecretary. Mr. Fowle, on taking the chair, stated the object for which the meeting had been called, bJ MII^I ..D W W V.1..J * > > - II WWIVU ??|f ft . iiviauvi) v?i /IIUCI lil&I IO, who explained in a clear and forcible speech the great benefits that most accrue to Alexandria from the holding of a fair sach as was t proposed bj th? Agricultural Society. It would attract to the city, be thought, not less than 19 MO persons, and unless the farmers of Virginia had learned very recently the art of ?tri?t economy, which he did not think they had. from 875 000 to SI00.0041 would K? iiwnt here by the visiters. All classes would feel the benefit?the merchant, the mechanic, artisan, laborer; and all would realize the good effects produced by congregating here annually such a crowd as would attend the fair. Another great object attained would be the introduction to our merchants of an entirely new class of customers?persons now brought within the reach of Alexandria inflnence by the opening of her railroads, and who once brought here and permitted to see our city, become ac quainted with our people, and examine our superior oommeroial advantages,would make this their market, as it naturally was, and thus make Alexandria, instead of what it is now, on* of the most flourishing cities in the country. The speaker cited Richmond, Lynchburg. Wheeling, Petersburg, and other places that had subscribed liberally for the purpose of getting up and holding similar fairs, to show the great advantages to be derived. Lynchburg, he said, wm by her liberal policy already going ahead rapidly, and unleaa the Deoole of Alexandria awake to their true interest*, and hold out inducements to attract the people from that section of country just opened to us, bj our railroads, we would rapidly fall behindhand. and our business men of Lynchburg worn out with the active duties of that place, would seek relaxation from business in the quiet town of Alexandria. He said that those u. i ??i ?i iL. i ? _ ciNcs mat unit uuoiou w Buuwjrioe inrge 9U1113 for the purpose of inducing the State Society to hold it* annual Fairs in their midst, did not make these offers or subscribe these amounts for the honor, but for the sake of profit, and he believed that the Corporation would make good thing of it by taking the control of the ? rounds, and fitting them up, so as to draw ither the crowd. Hither the Northern man would come to sell?for he well knows that Virginians would buy anything, from a -'fast trotter" to a he goat, or from a steam engine to a tooth-pick?and hither the Southerner would come to buy The location of Alexandria as a place for holding an Agricultural Fair could ?ot be excelled?easy of access, a larger and more varied collection of animals, machinery. Ac., would be brought here than could be tound at any other fair. There was not, the speaker continued, sufficient attractions held out to the country people?thcv wished to go where a crowd was assembled, mud once get them in the way of going to any particular point, and there was no danger that there would be a falling off The speaker concluded by hoping that Alexandria either in her corporate capacity, or by a liberal sub eription on the part of her citizens individually, would come to the assistance of the Society. and enable them to hare an exhibition this fall. The chairman next oilled upon John A. Washington, the president of the Agricultural Society, who rose and made a strong appeal in behalf of the Society. He considered it all important that the Society should bold a Fair thu fall. The city must set the example by a subscription before we could expect anything from the country or other plaees. lie gave a ery interacting account of a visit to the Agricultural Fair at St. Louis, and of the immense advantage that city derived from the Fair. While he did not desire to create the impression that a Fair here would attract anytning like the number of people that were annually gathered together at St. Louis, yet in proportion to the sise of the two places and oiher things considered, we would derive, in propor uon, kb equal advantage, ue tnougnt t&at ' 15,006 was a low estimate for the number that would attend, and >11 eould see at a glance the great benefit that would accrue to the lity. He was more deeply interested in Alexandria than in any city in the country. Here was his market. What he bought, he bought herer what he sold was sold here. lie had always liked it, and iU people, and he was now advocating its cause. It would, he thought, be a great blunder if the people did not seize this advantage to render profitable and give permanence to all the works of improvement in which we have ao deep an interest; and if this opportunity was all- wed to slip, the delay would be deeply regretted when our citisens saw other Elaees reaping the harvest which we had sown, [e hoped that some plan would at once be de TiHi iur securing subscription on tne part of the city to the Society, so as to enable them to go oa with the work, and open the fair this fall. The following resolution* were then offered by K F. Witmer. Reaolv*d 1 bet in the opinion of this meeting the City Council of Alexandria would conauU the intereeu of tbia community by advancing the bonds of the Corporation to the extent of $10,000. to the Potomac, Piedmont and Valley Agricultural Sooiety, payable at such time a* may be deemed expedient; aaid Society agreeing to pay annually the intereet thereon, and a suSoient sum in addition to retire the bonds at their matarity. liautvfd That a committee be appointed to obtain from our citisens the sums necessary to pay the interest and create the sicking fund lor the parpoees designated above. The Chairman explained the object of the reeolatiens It had been considered the best plan by which a subscription on the part of the city could be effected; and while it would *n. able the Society to proeeeuto the work, tM tax on the people would be comparative!y light? only the interest on about $1,200?the oompany paying the intereaton the bond* of the Corporation. and retiriag them down when they fall doe He forcibly argued the propriety of a subscription on the part of the eity. C K Stuart seconded the resolutions in a telling speech, interspersed with many huoaocous remarks. He said Uhat the people of the tower country were looking forward to the Agricultural Fair with intereet. Be tkniwht that (!it?

The unmarried woman, says an exchange, who can read this without indignation, ought to be married : Let evorj wife be persuaded that there are two ways of governing a family. The first is by the eiDrewion of that will which belongs to force; tbe second to the power of mildness, to which every strength will yield. One is the power of the husband: a wife should never employ any other arms than those of gentleness. When a woman accustoms herself to say * I will," she deserves to lo?e her empire. Avoid contradicting your husband. When we smell a rose it ia to imbue the sweeta of odor; we look for everything amiable in woman. Whoever is often contradicted feels insensibly an aversion for the person who contradicts, which gains strength by time, and whatever be her good qualities, is not easily destroyed. Occupy yourself only with household affairs. wait till vonr huahanri rronfitlnn to von tho*A nf higher importance, and do not read lectures to him. Let your preaching be a good example, and practice virtue yourself to make him love it. Command his attention by being always kind to him ; never exact anything, and you will attain much; appear always flattered by the little he does for you, which will excite him to do more. All men are vain ; never wound his vanity, not even in the most trifling instances. A wife may have more sense than her husband, but she should never seem to know it. When a man gives wrong counsel, never feel that he has done so, but lead him by degrees to what is rational, with mildness and gentleness ; when he is convinced, leave him to the merit of having found out what is just and reasonable When a husband is out of temper, behave obligingly to him ; if he is abusive, never retort, and never prevail over him to bumble him. Choose well your frienc^, have but few. and be careful of following their advice in all matters. Cherish neatness without luxury, and pleasure without excess ; dress with taste, particularly with modesty: vary in the fashion of your dress, especially as regards colors. It gives a change to the idea*, and recalls pleasing recollections. Such things may appear trifling, but they have more importance than is imagined. Never be curious to pry into tout husband's concerns, but obtain his confidence. Always preserve economy, avoid being out of temper, and be careful never to scold; by this means he will find his house pleasanter than any other Seem always to obtain information from him. especially before company, though you may pass yourself for a simpleton. Xflvar forir?t that l wifn him *11 h?r imnnrl. auce to that of her husband. Leave him entirely master of his own actions, to go or come whenever he thinks fit. A wife ought to make her company amiable to her husband, that ho will not be able to exist without it. then he will not seek fur pleasure abroad, if she does not partake of it with him. Increase or Tolls oj? th* Chesapeake a.id Ohio Canal.?The Cumberland Civilian says: " ( pon the most reliable authority, we announce that the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal is now in a good navigable condition it* entire length, that there is a large force engaged upon Dam No. 4, and that the gap on the \ irginia side will be entirely closed up in eight or ten days, and the dam finished at the time contracted. The new Board of Directors took possession of the canal cn the first of May, shortly thereafter the Board of Public Works suggested to them the propriety of raising the tolls which the canal directors promptly refused to do. The Board of Directors are to meet again on the 13th of August, at Berkeley Springs. On the 15th of August the Board of Public Works are to meet at the same place. We have understood that the Board of Public Works have determined that the tolls shall be raised, and rumor has it that four members of said board have signed a written agreement to insist upon tnu policy ana it toe directors shall refuse, to tarn them oat and to appoint others in their place. It is also stated that the said Board of Public Works have, in a written communication, informed the Directors of the Canul, that they will take the responsibility as the guardians of the interest of the State, and that the tolls must be raised at their next meeting. The object of their raising the toll is to turn the ooal trade to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We learn that a paper is going the rounds receiving the signatures of leading oitiiens, making a oall for a public meeting to be held in this city on the 10th of August, for th? purpose of taking into consideration mea BUiDO Ml U1QTCUI OU 1UVI vftflw U1 kUIJS U J K Ui IUC canal. This call has our hearty concurrence, and wt> hope the meeting will be an imposing one, and will adopt such measures as will tend to impress the Canal Directors and the Board of Publio Works with the fatal and ruinous effect that will follow such an ill-advised policy as that of the raising of toll on the canal. Alexandria, Loidoik and Hampshire Railroad.?The Clarke (Va.) Journal says:? We came down yesterday on the Loudoun and Hampshire?or rather the "Alexandria, Clarke and Hampshire" road?and are gratified to be able to report very favorably of ita operations and prospects. There was quite a busy air along the whole line, at the Leesburg, and each of the other stations, and considerable number of passengers. The road already, without handling any orops, either spring or fall, is not only paying expenses, but alao the interest of the Clarke county bonds, which amounts to seven thousand a year. The toad is admirably built, plain but enduring and smooth. The station nouses and kuildinira r?n rail j od it are better than those of any other road in the State. All of oar bonds hare been used as money or else hypothecated and drawing interest. The road will certainly be completed to a point two miles further than Clarke's Gap this fall, shortening the distance by stage some six miles. The ballasting is still going on, and is within a few miles of completion to Leesburg, beyond which some sixty bands are engaged grading the remaining six miles. Four of these six miles (to Clarke's Qap) it is known are done, all to the tracklaying. The road is out of debt and in better oredit than any road in the State. Its Anancial president seems to work things as it were by magic. We have reason to be proud of the improvement. They say Loudoun is more anxious than ever for its further prosecution and final completion. The Simple Secaet.?Twenty clerks inastore. Twenty bands tn a printing office. Twenty young men ia a village. All want to get along in tbe world anfl all expect to do ao. One of toe clerks will rlae to be a partner and make a fortune. One of tbe compositors will own a newspaper and becoikte an influential and prosperous citizen One of the the apprentices will come to be a master builder. One of tbe villagers will get a handsome farm and llva like a patriarch. But which iadasttned to be tbe lucky Individual? Lucky? There i? no luck about it Tbe thing is almoct as certain as the Rule of Three Tbe young fellow who wlU distance bis competitors Is he wbo masters Us braineas. who pteaervea bis integrity, who Urea clearly and purely, who never geta in debt. who gains friend* by deserving them, and put* bis money In a savins bank. There ere some w*ya to fwtese that look shorter then this eld dusty highway.
