There arrived over the Northern Pacific
in .January at -joints west of Spokane Falls
361 immigrants, and January is the dullest
month of the year. The Northern Pacific
bureau of immigration have received since
January first an average of 200 letters of in
quiry per week, almost every one from per
sons who intend to go to Oregon or Wash
ington before May 1 st. It is not unlikely
that the immigration in March and April
will be heavier by far than any two other
months on record. Ex.
Lieut. Schwatka thinks the day is not
far distant when a man may take a ride from
Minneapolis to the mouth of the Yukon
river in a Pullman sleeper. If it should be
in the winter season be may pass over Bh
ring's straits on the ice in the same sleeper,
and thence extend his excursion to St. Pet
ersburg. The track across the straits will
connect with a line of railioad now in pro
cess of construction by fhe Russians to the
mouth of the Amoor river, whence it might
easily be extended to the straits to connect
with the American system at that point.
In the olassic language of the street, this
will be a "big thing on ice."
A French .financier of some renown pre
dicts that a few years hence the European
continent will be nothing but casino for the
white races of America, Africa and Aus
tralia. Agrictlture in Europe is played out,
be says, and her factory and mining in
dustry will be similarly supplanted by the
vast coal fields and infinite petroleum of
Russia in Asia, and by the mineral wealth
of America, China, Australia, and the still
unexplored mountains of New Zealand.

Washington, Feb. 27, 1885.
Washington is rapidly filling up with
visitors. Among them are notable who will
see the inaugural ceremonies. The hotel
proprietors are happy and unhappy at' the
same time. Happy because of the bright
business outlook for next week, and un
happy because they cannot draw upon all
outdoors to accommodate the thousands
who are appealing for quarters. Still there
will be ample accommodations for all who
may come, The committee of public com
fort have made provision for these visito's,
ami have been fearful the impression would
yet out that there is lack of room in the
city. They say there is to be no advance
in priues, either at the large hotels or by
private parties, and that no advantage shall
be taken ot the crowd to make exhorbitant
The few days which now intervene before
the 4th of March will be full of the .U3iest
preparation for the pageant and ceremonies
of that occasion. For a week past the
streets have shown evidence of the coming
in the de coration of the buildings with
bunting and flags, and the wooden stands
erected along the line of march from which
spectators will view the parade. The pro
cession is expected to bring twenty-rive
thous.-.ud men in line, an I will be about five
miles long. It will escort President Cleve
land from the White House to the Capitol
and return and be reviewed by him from a
stand on the Avenue in front of the Mansion
which has already been erected. The in
augural platform, so called, in front of the
main portico of the Capitol has also been
completed and appropriately festooned and
decorated. On this Mr. Cleveland will
stand while taking tlie oath of office, and
delivering his inaugural address. The route
of the procession has been arranged to take
in many more sections of the city than is
usually followed by the pageants, and it is
hoped this extension will somewhat relieve
the pressure of the crowds on Pennsylvania
Vice President Hendricks, and his party
arrive I last evening in a private car. They
were met by a committee and escorted to
their quarters at Willard'a hotel. Mr.
Cleveland will not come until the 3rd of
March. Presidont Arthur invited Mr.
Cleveland to be hia guest at the Executive
Mansidn from the time of his arrival in the
city until he is formally inaugurated, but
the invitation was declined with thanks as
apartments had already been engaged for
him at the Arlirgton. According to the
present arrangement, the retiring President
will cMl on the incoming one at the hotel
and accompany him to the Capitol to be in
augurated. President Arthur will also
attend the inaugural ball. It is not known
yet whether he and the new President will
dance, but it is supposed they will take part
with the Vice President in the Presidential
set. The decorations have advanced tar
enough to give an idea of the splendor of
tho bail room. The walls ware first covered
with white muslin to give a back-ground,
md the decorations consist of large mirrors,
paintings, garlands of flowers, two thousand
flags, plants, and draperies of gold em
broidered maroon velvet. All the States
will be represented in the decorations, and
fifty electric lights will brighten the
Uiaut scene. The hall covers more than
one acre and will easily accommodate ten
thousand waltzers or seven hundred square
dancers. The music will cost 5,000. Four
orchestras, led respectively by men of repu
tation will make the occasion sufficiently
musical. Gilmore and his white kid gloves
will be stationed at one end of the room,
while the pale-faced DaSeabetrg, of St. Louis
will wield the baton behind a bank of ferns
at the other.
The topics on Capitol hill aro Cleveland
and the currency problems; a possible extra
session, and the dubtful Cabinet. Gossip
iu regard to the latter takes no more definite
irit't than it did two days past. At the
eleventh hour Congress is trying to avoid
an extra session by hard work and night
sessions. Aunropriatiou bills have been
pushed to the front au.d the rush, confusion
and pell-ineli work of these closing days of
the session are indescribable. One of the
last acts of this Congress will be to agree to ;
the proposed postal reforms namely, an
extension of the two cent rate to one ounce,
and a one cent drop letter rate.

riving here in lare numbers. Every aspir
