A WEEK IN WASHINGTON.
; ,ashi-ctox, February 25 tb,' 3871.
From our hasty xiBi't to the Patent Office we
went again to Dr. Parker's. ITe took us to
the "White Ilouee, and presented us again to
the President and Mrs. Grant, who with Bundry
ladies in elegant toilettes, and long trains, stood
to be victimized for the benefit of the glorious
democracy of this glorious country. , Mrs. Grant
is a plain but pleasant looking woman, who puts
pany especially were the voices hushed, as one
nnd another entered the chamber where .Wash
ington died. . It is a low room, of modest dimen
sions, with two good sized windows in front.
All the rooms on the second floor are low, and
most of the windows are of twelre panes of 8 x
10 glass, which might well pass for the windows
of a certain house 1 know in Jlilo. We were
told that Martha Washington never slept in the
room where ber huBband died, after his death,
but took a closet in the attic for ber bedroom.
La Fayette occupied when
a cueet of Washington, retains something of its
andent character, but is now occupied by some i

and chribtian character. ' AVe were introduced to
eundryaPeopIe during the hour we remained but
to no one who interested us more than the wife
of ppeaker Colfax a sweet, refined looking woman
whom Colfax found, not in New York or Wash-
! ington, but in Ohio, I was told and brought her
to the Capital, without asking consent of the
bellea of Washington which, I am eure bo never
would have obtained. It will not do to gossip,
but there are certain stories afloat about letters
to him with Ions; dark tresses inclosed, one at
least, which the lady referred to a well-known
friend of jours and ours in Boston, for further
information. Mrs. Colfnx told us she was to
have a reception the next day, her last for the
season," and invited us to be present, which of
course we should desire whether invited or not.
Dined with Com. Reynolds. Wednesday inor-
j ning we set out early for Arlington Heights.
After crossing the Potomac, we ascended its
i gently eloping bank for a mile or two, when we
j came to the foot of the hill which is crowned by
i the mansion of the late Confederate Gen. JLee.
! The white pillars of the immense rtico in front
' of the house, contrasted exquisitely with the fine
forest trees through which we saw them, as the
carriage wound slowly up the hill. The situa
tion of the house, the grounds, the view from the
portico across the broad Potomac all arc mag
nificent ; and as we stood almost spell bound by
the beauty of the scene, we could not help ex
claiming : O ! how much the rebels lost by their
own folly ! On looking through the houe, you
find it plain and cheap, and if its walls and
j porches could whisper out their secrets, they
would no doubt become immortalized in the annals
of treason. We went all over the house, which
i is entirely unfurnished, but kept clean by an
I attendant on the place. Our driver was once a
j slave of Gen. Lee, and has an aged grandmother
once a slave, now living on the place. Ihere is
another notable " Aunt Snltie," to whose house
the driver was told by our friends to take us
which he did. We found her in a very ancient
block cabin, kept neat and clean by her grand
daughter. She is over eighty years old was
"raised on the place," as she 6aid had borne
i nineteen children into the kingdom of slavery !
i asKeu ner u JLee soia mem irom her. " Old
Curtis did that," 6he said. the father of Mrs.
Lee, and relative of Martha Washington. They
were scattered everywhere. One went to Africa,
and of the rest, she knew not where they were.
j or whether they were alive, with exception of
j three, who had found their way back to her since
j the war. She told of her "Jim," dragged out
j of the whipping-house in chains to be s. Id
j farther south, Baying in a choked voice, " O ! I
I wished they had taken a gun and shot him." As
the poor creature swayed continually back and :
Lrtn in ner seat, ana wiped her nearly sightless
1!IUU, OUI; " ' " i
Ranted bv Washington. The buddings, garden,
reen i.ouses, and grounds are all well kept, and
The combined whole roust be supremely lovely in
the summer. Yet a sense ol uiwr wniu
possess one, in wandering through this earthly
l'aradise. Gone ; dead ; past ; lost ; are the words
crowding upon the mind with a terrible reality,
as your feet echo through the bare and silent
rooms, where once all was intense life, thought,
action. The imperative whistle of the steamer
compelled us to quit the spot around which the
love of a nation centres. We gathered a few
fillen leaves of box, ' holly and honeysuckle,
which last hung luxuriantly over the door. A
few hours before we bad taken our first look ot
Mount Vernon, and now we took our last.
There were forts, and guns enough along the
banks of the Potomac, to mind us of war. The
great black monBter, lying within a stones throw
of our 6teamer, looked like some huge inert Bca
slug, just unearthed from Borne remote geological
period. Indeed everything in and about Washing
ton recalls the war. It is the first place we have
visited where we have felt the war. It is in the
very atmosphere, though it takes a new comer to
perceive it.- Tho6e who lived here through those
terrible lour years, lived a life of daily maityr
dom in their anxiety for the country, and at
night put their apparel in an available position
for instant use, should a shell drop into the
Capital from Arlington Heights 6uch as these
do not notice the last faint echo of a finished
conflict. But to me it is apparent. The war is
interwoven into the very life of the people.
Here are the graves of their friends over yonder
are the crumbling earthworks, and there are the
swarms of lreedmen. The war enters into evcrv
public address. The most effective speech I have j
beard in the city, was one of which the burden '
was these three words, 44 Ten years ago." What :
could, and what could not be done in Washington j
ten years ngo. , And here are the scarred and
maimed. A few evenings since, two gentlemen,
a General and a Colonel walked in, in company
to make us a call. Each had lost a right arm in
the war. Yes, in Washington we become fully
convinced that there has been a war.
Our Visit to Mount Vernon was a fitting close
to our week in the Capital of this great country.
We left it more hopeiul than we entered it. for
there is deep and liealthful religions life in the
city. There is a noble army of workers who
have not forgotten the lessons of heroism they
practised during a few years struggle for the
nation's life. And more, there are good men and
true in our Capitol. The Senators especially, as
a body, stand high in the estimation of the
citizens. With such men at the helm, and with
our motto, 44 In God we Trust," we may hope
that our nation is 6aved.

Kawalhae rotatoes sind "Oppo
sition." Editor P. C. Advertiser Sir I have always
thought that where there was au opposition in sell
ing an article, it hud a tendency to reduce the price,
hut it appears that I am wrong, in one instance, at
lensr. There is and has been "a firm established at
Kawaihae, for the purpose of supplying whaleships I
and others with potatoes, and when ships were on
their way to the S.tndwich Islands, the masters felt j
confident that they would not be disappointed in get- i
ting what they required, because this firm was a j
permanent fixture at Kawaihae, and thejr sold their
potatoes at a fair price, and always did everything
in their power to accommodate their customers.
But. Mr. Editor, there were some kind friends, real
benevolent ones, at Honolulu that thought the whale-
ships paid too much for their potatoes, so they
started an opposition at Kawaihae. Save us from
such kind friends as thts?, for if we had but a few
more like them, we would be in a fair way for the
poor bouse ! W ell, one of these good friends from
stepped from her position to introduce us, as bI I Uonol"lu "ri.ve(1 f Kawaihae. and began the busi
eaid, to her husband's mother a venerable lady j ness of reducing the price of potatoes. But tell it
whom we all remember to have read of, as ' not n at The whaleships arrive at Kawaihae,
giving receptions, and doin all the honors of her i and find, instead of paying the outrageous price of

! dressed, and sitting at soiuc little distance from
j the daughter, and iier group of younger women,
; who were of course standing. After a short hut
j pleasant stay, we went to dine with Gen. Whit
j telscy, one of the Professors in Howard University
i after which the General took us to a public
i meeting appointed for the purpose of conlerring
! the de-rree of M. D. on the first craduatinir I
the price down to $'4.50 per barrel. Now, Jlr.
Editor, I do not s.iy that our friends have not the
right to buy potatoes to sell to the ships at five or six
dollars per barrel. That is one of their privilege".
But at the same time, they will let us reserve the
right not to deal with those speculators of the oppo

eteanie'r, bound for Aiount Vernon that shrine of
i every true American heart. The day was mild I
j and perfect in every respect, and tho boat was i
crowaea wnn Ene looking people, on the same
pilgrimage as ourselves. Dr. Chickcring of
Portland, and his wife and daujrhtcr. were in our
Jiarty, and pointed out to us many interesting
ocalities. Alexandria is an old, slow lookin
town, but it holds the house in which Ellsworth
was murdered unless, as some say it is entirely
carried off by relic hunters. We could not see
; it, but the direction in which it stood, or btands,
streets which opened on the river, our attention
was called to one in particular, the first paved
street in the United States. After two hours
sail, we reached the sacred grounds less than
sacred we could not consider them and slowly
wended our way up the somewhat steep ascentto
Washington's tomb. Was it a reality, or was it
a dream, that only a slab of marble separated us
irom an urni remained ol one whose body only is
mortal. We stood long before the iron gratim.

over which is the simple inscription, Within
this vault lie the remains of Gen. Geore Wash
mgton. Other visitors crowded up to the rrratimr. and
we gave place to them, going ourselves to the
spring which gushes from a steep bank near the
river's brink. It is under cover, and the cool
water drips from a tube inserted in the hill 6ide,
into a marble basis below. We drank of tho
spring from which Washington drank. It seemed
like a sacrament. We looked into the old tomb.
and other objects of interest in that locality, and
then took our upward way to the Mansion. It
too, has its wide portico white pillars of large
size, and commands a superb view of the Potomac.
Jiothing could be finer than the prospect from
the house and the high grounds in the vicinity.
Little wild flowers were beginning to peep out f
the ground, and the air was full of spring. We
almost felt like saying, "Let us' make three
tabernacles." At length we entered . the bouse,
which is always open to visitors, and kept with
perfect neatness. The principal drawing room
is large and high, with a fine frescoed ceilino,
and a marble mantel, imported from France the
front of it entirelycovered with devices of hus
bandry and rural life. Like all the other mantels
I and fire places in the bouse, it is protected by a
strong wire screen, irom ins picking and stealing
propensities of curiosity hunters. Jn this room
are two splint bottom, straight back chairs,
labeled, " Brought over in the May Flower."
Also a large harp, or at least the case of one, (it
was not open) a wedding present from Martha
Washington to one of her relatives. The case
was in fjrm like one ol Chickering'g grand
pianos, and not very much smaller in eize. The
other rooms on the first floor were high but not
large, and contained various objects of more or
let! interest. One touching relic of the pact was
the 44 Key to the Bastille," given to Washington
by La layette. It is in a little glass case,
fastened to the wall, to prevent its getting lost
We passed reverently: from room to room,
looking into closets, pantries, bleeping apart-
Ax Astonished Minister. In a small city, not j
far distant from the "Hub," resides a dentist j
named Brown. He received an order from his ;
beloved pastor for a set of false teeth. The work j
was executed promptly, and the shepherd of his
flock called in at the appointed time to receive
them. Brown fixed them in his customer's mouth,
when the latter, stepping to the glass to see the
effect, said slowly and distinctly :
" Jesus Christ ! Jesus Christ !"
Now Brown is more noted for his quickness of
temper and pro anity than for his piety; and,
healing hia customer speak in such a manner,
his ire was very quickly aroused. . . - . . - ...
" Blast it," he exclaimed, " if you don't lik
the teeth you needn't take them, but there is no
necessity for your swearing about it."
? Ihe astonished minister drew back. ,. - -j
' ' My dear sir." he Baid, " I am not swearing
about the teeth ; but for ten years I have not j
teen able to pronounce my beloved Savior's name j
distinctly ; I was only trying your teeth." I
