Alexandria Gazette (Newspaper) - December 1, 1854, Alexandria, Virginia The present time. Hard time hard times m the Universal Orv. Wherever you go there is the same complaint. Every thing except the necessaries of life has depreciated labor is reduced Shoals of unemployed workmen and servant girls Are like i Carber waiting for some thing to turn up. Hotels Art dubious some threatening to break before the end of cold weather. We find on inquiry that the keep ers of the crowded eating anti drinking houses in the lower part of our City Roi fess to a reduction of at least one half in their Busi Ness. At one of them where an average of 0 is usually received every Day. The clerk remarked that a Large part of its Busi Ness consisted of its dealings with merchants and drummers who taking their customers to Dine in prosperous times spent four or live Dollar apiece but that now the receipts trom such customers do not average More than four or five shillings. T Redit is contracted and no Loans Are pro curable on what Are admitted to be unexceptionable securities. Keal estate has depreciated on an a rage from thirty to fifty per cent. It was Only the other Day that we noticed the Sale of a mud Souc Limestone House on foreclosure of mortgage for � 12,000, which not a year ago was considered cheap at �20, a depreciation of forty per cent. Happy the Man now whose coffers run with what our Chatham Street friends would Call the Only real original genuine to font . The Jubilee for pawnbrokers has come. There is however one hilarious feature in this gloomy state of affairs. The theatres and places of amusement Are full in fact thy do a better business than in times of less depression. When a Man gets poor says Samuel Weller Blest if he dont g to eating Oyster a Hen a new yorker feels desperate to rushes to the theatre where to forgets troubles in the world of the imagination and draws a Supply of happiness which May in some measure protect from the owls of the Morrow. When the coining storm charges the air with moisture in Token of its Advent the n r v 1 a Bown a Wii 911 a us Tim til a 9 99 4 9 1 v j assumes an unwonted composure draws Oil from a thousand unsuspected sources in her own body wherewith to smooth and Render water tight her ruffled plumage deposited one leg safely under her Wing stands on the other and Cocking up one Eye to the Firma ment placidly defies its rage. In recounting the melancholy signs of the times we find after Ull that one of the most suggestive was omitted namely their effects upon the Ladie. A gentleman an assiduous Church goer of Many years standing tells us that at Thi period when to lieu Are arraying themselves in Gav color for the Winter he never saw no Tunny on i nuut a smut it is beautifully characteristic of the sym pathetic relations existing Between the sexes that this fact should be so observable. Them Pular charge of heartlessness and in reflect Ting extravagance made against the ladies of our City is thus disproved. It is shown that husbands need Only communicate their embarrassments to their companions to receive All the Aid and Comfort which conjugal affection ought to furnish. While we Are about it it May he As Well t mention that the pressure of the Money mar Ket has invaded the precincts of tin grave. L using the year now nearly past there have been fewer expensive Monument erected to the memory of the dead than in any previous year since the rage for such things fairly commenced in this country. We have the statement of one of the larges Marble dealers in the country that while in for Iner times he has been accustomed to re Peiu annually orders for Monument ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 in value during the Iasi eleven month lie has not had one. 1 he demand however for inexpensive monuments has greatly increased showing that the remembrance to the departed has hot declined with the mean to make an ostentatious display of 1 orb maku1k1.
