Our Washington letter.
YASIIINGTo, D. C,
.May 28, 1873.
There arc a large number of Southern
jieoplc hero at present. The severe
hot weather of late is hastening thou
sands from the south to the summer
resorts of the north. Those who can
make it convenient to go via Wash
ington north generally do so, and tarry
a few da) s visiting public buildings and
other points of interest.
Necr bclore lias there been such
preparation made for the decoration of
soldiers' graves at Arlington as this
year. There has been no labor or
money spared by the Grand Army of
the Republic and the friends of the
buried dead to make the decoration of
the graves an imposing cccne.
The interview of Speaker Blaine with
Brigham Young has developed tl.c
animus of the great saint. Brigham is
put down here as a politician, and a
selfish one at that. Last year, when
he expected at any moment the strong
arm of the Government would crush his
little empire to pieces, he skulked away
like a frightened hound. When he
found that the Government was mer
ciful he rceumcd his dictatorship, and
when Mr. Blaine docs him the honor of
visiting him, he assumes the air of a
mastiff and questions the right of Uncle
Sara to interfere with tho local aftairs
of the government of Utah. The re
plyTif Mr. B., all concede, was correct
and to the point, viz: that Lincoln
was elected by virtue of the avowed,
principle that Congress had the right
to control the domestic institutions of
the territories, and which principle was
at that time, as is now, in direct oppo
sition to the expressed opinion of
Brigham. It is understood here, that
if there is not another Credit Mobillier
investigation next session, Congress
will, by proper legislation, grant po
lygamy a very snort tease oi power.
The importance of the Japanese
mission can scarcely be over estimated,
and the President will not appoint a
totally inexperienced man to that pos
ition. Ivonowledge of the country
of the people and of the official repre
sentatives of the Government of the
Government itself, oriental diplomacy
and policy will be well considered.
Among the few men mentioned for
that position, the name of Hon. Geo.
S. Fisher, of Georgia, stands first with
the President, not only as a useful,
active friend of the administration an
a representative man from the South,
bnt as one whose experience and knowl
edge of Jnpan and the Jnpinese peo
ple is accorded to that of no other
American citizen, his former record
there being one of the highest integrity,
sustaining the national honor and dis
nity during the most trying period
known thtro from the opening of the
ports and our first official relations with
the country. It is claimed by his
friends that the South will unite on him,
and that since the whole South has not
one foreign mission worth the name, it
is the duty of the President to appoint
him at once.
Mr. J. R. Dodge, Statistician of the
Agricultural Department, will sail for
Europe on Saturday, on his way to
Vienna, haing been appointed special
Commissioner to the International Ex
position now in progress at that place.
Mr. Dodge expects to place himself in
communication with Agricnltural De
partments, Agricultural societies, sta
tisticians and other scientific authorities,
and to connect with them a system of
international crop reports and other
statistics. No system in Europe is as
perfect as our own, but all develop
points of interest for tho whole world
wide civilization. Where these points
are gathered up in systematic reporrm
we may expect agricultural production
to bo greatly enhanced, and to become
It appears that we are threatened
with an inundation of the Chinese Cap
ital, as well as Chinese labor on our
Pacific coast. Tho collossal power of
that capital is yet to be demonstrated,
yet it is said that there are capitalists
in China whoso wealth exceeds many
times that of tho sum Rothschild. It
is also being used in the arts of corrup-
lion, ii inrcaiens to take possession
of some branches of business in Call
fornia, and to interfere seriously with
domestic interests in that quarter.
Tho receipts from tho internal thy-
enue has thus far reached one hundred
and lour million dollars, several million
more than was anticipated. The sum
estimated for tho .fiscal year ending
June 30th was 110,000,000. Yester
terday the receipts from this bureau
were $329,957.83, which, "should this
sum be the daily average for the month
of June, the receipts anticipated will
be exceeded by nearly $2,500,000.
What will the Greeley Democrats
think of that ? Lux.
Fop.ce of Example. " What will
you have to drink?" asked a waiter of
a young lad who for the first time ac
companied his father lo a public dinner.
Uncertain what to say, and feeling sure
he would not be wrong if he followed
his fathei'd example, ho replied : " I'll
take what father takes." The answer
reached his father's ear, and instantly
the full responsibility of his position
fhshed upon him. If he said, " I'll
take ale," as he always had before, his
son would take ale also, and then?
And the father shuddered, and the his
tory of several young men, once as
bright and prosperous as his own
bright lad, now ruined by drink, started
up in solemn warning before him.
Should his hopes be also blasted and
that open laced lad become a burden ?
But for strong drink they would have
been active, earnest or prosperous men:
aud if. it could work such ruin upon
them was his own lad safe ? Quicker
than lightning these thoughts passed
through his mind, and in a moment
the decision was made. "If the boy falls
he will have me to blame ;" in tones
tremulous with emotion and to the as
tonishment of all present, ho said :
" Waiter, I'll take water 1" and from
that day to this strong drink has been
banished from that man's table and
from that man's home.
John Stuart Mill was a man of pecu
liar and remarkable presence. Slightly
above tho middle height, with slender
body and limbs, his laco and head
marked him out even to strangers as a
man of hjgh intellectual capacity. His
walk was most peculiar, and might be
styled "tripping," for he stepped, as
it were, on his toes alone, in the man
ner of an elderly rrench daqcing-mas-
ter. J. his, ol itself would' -attract the
notice of those unacquainted -with him,
but when'they looked at -liTs- lace and
forehead.cunositv chanjred into interest.
His features were delicately moulded,-
ibo noso slightly aquiline, tho eyes
bright and piercing, the mouth denoting
sweetness combined with unalterable
determination, the complexion remark
ably clear and of roseate hue, the hair
thin, inclined to red and tinging fast
with the silver of age and earnest
thought. But the expansive lorehead,
broaa and lofty, told of the man even
before he opened his lips, and to listen
to his speeches or conversation was to
hearken to Nester himself, for ho spako
as he wrote tersely, logically, clearly
Among certain Amazonian tribes the
Indian bride groom is subjected to a
strange test. While tne marriage les
tivities are going on his hand is tied
up in a paper bag full of fire ants.
The bites of these creatures are said
to be trulyerrible the bitten parts
feeling as i'f they were tortured by
burning coals. It the'bridegroom can
bear the test spoken of, he is consid
red equal to tho trials of matrimony.
Washington Nkws. The Washing
ton correspondent of the Oregon State
Journal, writing under date of May
15 tli, says:
The civil serico people are already
at work trying to have one "of the
Associate Justices promoted to the
Chief Justiceship. To promote one
would offend or slight each of tho re
maining seven Judges. There is no
doubt that every one of the Supreme
Court Judges,,next to himself, would
prefer Geo. II. Williams to any other
man in the nation, but nobody seems
to know anything about who will be
appointed, and it is not probable that
the President himself has arrived at a
Judge Wilson is again confined to his
bed by sickness at his residence in
Georgetown. Durfng the last few days
he has been so seriosly ill as to bo unable
to be out of the room, and visitors are
not allowed to see him.
A BcAunrtn RrrntosrECT. When
the summer day of youth is slowly
wasting away into the nightfall of age,
and the shadows of the past years grow
deeper and deeper as life wears to a
close, it is pleaant to look back through
the vistas of time upon tho joys and
sorrows of early years. If we have a
homo to shelter, or hearts to rejoice
with us, and friends who have been
gathering around our fireside, then the
rough places oi our waytanng wilt do
wnrn and smoothed awav in the twilicht
j - . -
of life, while the bright sunny spots we
nave passea tnrougn win grow ongm
er and more beautiful. Happy; indeed,
nrr t.hnsn whose intercourse with the
world has not changed the fiourso of
their hfllier feeling, or broken those
musical cords of tho heart whose vibra
tions nra so melodious, so tender and
so touching in the evening of age.
Remedy for Headache. Put a
handful of Bait into a quart of water,
add one ounce of spirits of hartshorn
and half an ounce of camphorated spir
its of wine. Put them quickly into a
bottle, and cork tightly to prevent the
escape of the spirits. Soak a piece of
cloth with the mixture, and apply it
to the head ; wet the cloth afresh as
it gets heated.
One can bo married cheap in New
Hampshire. A clergyman of that State,
having performed the interesting cere
mony, was asked his price by the bride
groom. On replying that the law gave
him two dollars, the newly married
man promptly handed him fifty cents,
remarking, " Well, that will make two
dollars and fifty cents for you, ana uis

An ingenious French writer observes
that .those who depend on the merits

Handicraft Labor. The Trusteea
of Girard College propose to teach
their pupils how to work with their
hand3 as well as their brains. Two of
their classes aro at work two hours in
the morninjr and two in tho afternoon.
and the work is to be limited to tho
manufacture of paper boxes and tin
ware, at least for the present, until tbo
success oi tho experiment is demon
strated. To give an idea of the valuo
of work the boys aro allowed moderate
wages. With wise management such
a plan ought to work admirably. A
turn at the work bench lor a boy of
i even win do an agreeable relaxation
from the mental strain of the school
room, and much more so for older boys.
In all institutions for poor boys, girls,
ana young people, as much attention
ought to be given to hand work as
head work, rjot to the exclusion of
recreation, but practically as an induce
ment to have recreation. In the divis
ion of time, five hours are quite enough
for active daily study, and three or
four more can be given to active labor,
leaving the rest for sleep and pleasure.
