From a Special Correspondent.
LETTER FROM WASHINGTON.
Washington"!). C, Feb. 12, 1873.
One not acquainted with " the season in
Washington ; who has only seen its beautiful
6pring, its calm warm summer, or its glorious
autumn, can form very little idea of it physically
or Bociallv. at this time iuBt before Lent, when the
bee-hiye is no bTrerbolic fizure of the whir of
social life. To-day the air is balmy as May ;
though the trees are significantly bare, there is a
slight growth ot grass on lawn ana pars,
while "Arlington Heights," across the Potomac
are surely " bills with verdure clad." lhese,
despite the remaining patches of snow, almost
rob winter of her rjreroeatives. Though there
are. as yet. no flowers without, each home has
its sweet-breathed mignonette, glowing car
nation, or fragrant geranium, while the many
hot houses are filled with choice roses, lilies,
As a photographic view of a day at the capital
one of many which may be acceptable to my
Honolulu readers, I propose to ask you to make
"Cabinet calls7' with me. un eaneeaays,
from 2 to 5, p. m., the ladies of Cabinet Ministers
are " at home " to all the world. Judging from
the rushing to and fro of carriages and coupes,
between those hours, " all the world the
" sovereign people," as we say in America avail
themselves of this opportunity to approve of the
powers that be. The wide streets, are, as if by
magic, filled not with contusion tor our drivers,
either public or private, are too well-bred for
that, but with crowding, whirling, das!
vehicles. The first in order on this occasion is
the home of
WU. M. EVARTS,
Secretary of State. Mr. Evarts lives in an ele
gant and commodious mansion at the corner of
K. and Sixteenth Streets, which was built by
Mr. Hutchinson, the well-known "Alaska Fur
Contractor." The fur contractor has princely
ideas, as this is one of the handsomest residences
in Washington, a mansion and grounds sufficient
for Mr. Lvarts' large household. Mrs. Evarts
receives with ease and grace; Bhe is a petite lady
of gentle manners and modest mourning toilette
(having lost her lather several months Bince).
Being the mother of eleven children, we are not
surprised to be introduced to Miss Evarts and
three grown sisters, assisting in the, not incon
siderable, task of shaking hands and savin
something to the crowds who, induced by various
incentives, pay their respects to the family of
the secretary ot Mate. An, nere are two others,
dividing the duties with the mother. It is the
married daughter, and the little flaxen head is
the first grandchild of the great lawyer, a trifle
spoiled, I fancy, though grandchildren never are;
or, poseioiy, oniy tireu ot Demg aamirea, as
very young ladies may be, sometimes. Wc are
fortunate indeed, as it is the sixtieth birth-day of
tne Secretary or state, and he has lingered a
few minutes with the ladies in spite of the
weight of official cares. Mr. Evarts' spare, lithe
figure is familiar, through our illustrated Bheets,
to the civilized world. His eminent acquire
ments as a lawyer peculiarly fitted him for the
intricate legal questions continually presented to
the Secretary of State, but it requires also great
moral courage, and wc trust that Mr. Evarts
will not therein be found wanting. Of all our
representative men he and Alexander II
Stephens, of Georgia, nearer approach the his
tonan John Randolph of Roanoke in their
purely intellectual physiques. It is not uninter
estmg to note the profound depths of thought
which assert their presence on the Secretary's
Droaa Drow, aespite the evidently social chat he
is having with the American historian, George
Bancroft. This man of labor and of letters. haB
iu6t enterca witn nis lovable and attractive wife.
Mr. Bancroft, notwithstanding his almost incred
ible work, has, at the age of more than three
score and ten, time and taste for the considera
tion of the various demands of society. We
meet his straight tall form at reception and at
state ceremonial ; at lecture, theatre and opera,
we recognize his Bhapely Bilver head. Mrs. Ban
croft is probably one of the most considerate and
attractive women we have at the capital. Mac
ready eaid of her " 6he is the moBt charming
woman in America," and we should surely have
no little gratitude for the woman who has done
so much credit to American womanhood in the
exacting diplomatic circles of three European
courts. W e lingered a lew minutes, chatting
wun iiiose wnom we Knew, and lor the matter of
that, those whom we had never before seen, for
ashington is thoroughly cosmopolitan, and no
one has enough provincialism left to berestrainod
by the want of the simple ceremonial of an intro
duction, from asking a question. Among the
callers at one time in the parlors, we noted quite
a celebrated group of women. The first, that
most wholesome nature and genial favorite, Grace
Greenwood, (Mrs. Lippincott) who is out to-day
wuu ner sweei-iacea daughter, Miss Annie.
Ihen comes Mrs. Gen. Lander, the distinguished
tragcaienne, who has with her a visitor, Mrs
J no. lorney of Thiladelphia. Mrs. Lander has
just returned from a short visit to England. She
is a very handsome woman and ot rare majestic
mien ; she speaks with fine intonation, but has
no offensive Btaginess of manner. Near her is
Gail Hamilton of pen prolific. Miss Dodge has
a face bo plain that you have to know her before
it is possible to forgive some of the hard lines
Her voice is sweet, Bhe talks well and dearly loves
10 ao it. li is were not lor those long columns
in the Jew lorh lribune so frequently. I would
fancy she would rather talk than write ; and we
know her heart is full of human kindness, not
withstanding the severe reviewing she is now
giving a sister-writer Miss Phelps. Just being
introduced to Mrs. Evarts is the new Queen of
tragedy Madame Modjeska. who, during her en
gagement here has a few hours to give to social
recreation. She has wondrous grace, and her
rich voice is only richer by reason of the Blight
wanE oi connaence she indicates in attempting
general conversation in a foreign tongue. This
beautiful blonde of middle age is Mrs. Fassett,
the artibt, who has left her easel, upon which now
uungB a picture oi nisioric interest, " The Elec
toral Commission." We would Bay good-bye at
ouce 10 me secretary or state a mansion, re
Ireshed for further journeying by a hot cup of
cnocuiaie, due snat i nnd myselt chatting with
some Pacific Coast people, Col., Mrs. and Miss
Christmas, who have recently located here
They have gracefully shown their appreciation of
me ciaims oi me at tne capital Dy entertaining
very generoueiy. senator 1300th is doing social
duty to-day in an agreeable way, i. e., by direct
ing an attractive laay-inend through the mazes
or cabinet calls. Mrs. senator Jones' sweet
young face vies in youth and loveliness with the
three young lady visitors she is chaperoning
- i. - C i 1 . j . t - . -
viuiiora irom mree ainerenc states. Mrs. Jones
is a great favorite here by reason of her modest
worth, which, set off by her indulgent husband's
position and wealth, is all the more acceptable.
She has the very Epirit of kindness and hfisn?.
tality in her evcry-day life, and critical Wash
ington IVUICn was On ttie lOOkOIlt for mnet
unnecessary display, has learned to love her.
Here too is Miss Chaffee, and her friend. Miss
Case, who are full of the enjoyments of the
capital with that relish only known in youth.
Now a word to Mrs. Senator Spencer, nee May
Nunez, and we will leave, though we might stay
until the regulation hour of five with nlfianr
and not sans profit. This lady, a bride, has with
her to-day her husband's niece, Miss Spencer
from Maui, who is pleasinz. chattv and retit
and is the guest of Mrs. Chas. Nordhoff, and we
are sure the young lady could have no more
acceptable host and hostess. Mrs. Spencer is an
imposing figure, in rich, rather too 6tudied toil
ette; Bhe has immenselv lar?e black pvpb an
black they cause us to remember her Spanish
blood. She is delighted and so happy (so Bhe
says herself) that Bhe and the Senator want
everybody else to get married. She has not for
gotten the stage, thought I, when on Thursday
last (which is Senatorial reception day) 1 heard
her entertain a dozen people with a little inci
dent; she made all the fine points, and gave time
for the expected applause. Mrs. Senators McPher-
eon and Barnum, Miss Chaffee and Miss Case
who were receiving in the same parlor each had
a quiet coterie in a corner. As in days of old
the Senator's bride bad literally taken the stage.
Wending our devious way out of the crowd of
carriages we drive up a few squares on K. etreet
to tne secretary of the Treasury,
10US SHERMAN S.
Mr. Sherman lives in a very good taste, but
without ostentation, in the house which he
1 occupied eeveral years as Senator. He has no
family 6ave his wife. To-day we find Mrs.
Sherman assisted by three nieces from Ohio
the Misses Sherman and Mrs. Moulton. Mrs.
Sherman is a tall, fine-looking woman, of cold
unmagnetic nature ; but she tries to be glad
to see every one, and takes up her cross of social
duties with praiseworthy diligence. She is
dressed in plain black velvet, rare lace at throat
and with diamond pin and rings. She is
studiously careful to talk to each visitor, as far
as human endurance will achcive such a hercu
lean task. To-day there is yet a great deal of
excitement over the silver bill and the buzz
" remonetization" and " ruin" is beard even
in the parlors of the Secretary of the Treasury.
Among the guests we meet here are Mrs sber
man, wife ot the General of the Army, and
daughter of the late Senator Tom. Ewing of
Ohio with the General, who enjoys Washington
perhaps as well as any man in it, though be
did have conscientious scruples about living
here when he supposed the next Presidential
candidate would be from the West, and went
to St. Louis, Mo., rather too far, as the nominee
was from Ohio.
Entering with wife and daughter is Senator
oorhees, the successor of Oliver P. Morton of
Indiana. We can conceive of no greater con
trast than between those two Senators from
Indiana one a cripple, with paralyzed limbs,
but doubtfully supported by crutch and cane.
dark eyes, swarthy complexion and massive
head, of the Caesar type, his face scarred with
pain, and the yet deeper lines of party strife
and leadership. Mr. Voorbees is tall, broad
and observably handsome. His light, abundant
chestnut hair would make him noticed every
where ; nis pet name among his colleagues is
the " Tall Sycamore of the Wabash." He has
not toiled slowly up to Senatorial honors, but
by his great speech on the Silver Bill eprung to
the top-round of the ladder. His wife and
daughter are welcome back to Washington
They are ladylike, refined, and agreeable.
Just as we are leaving I took pleasure in in
troducing my friends to Mrs. Dr. Linderman
wife of the Director of the Mint. Mrs. Linder
man is allowed to be one of the most beautiful
women in Washington. Her dark eyes are of won
drous lustre, but if you would Bee them sparkle
just praise as l most cordially can her bus
band. He is a conscientious worker in his
official duties, and his new book, " Money," is
taken as authority upon the intricate questions
it discourses. A 6quare below on K. street we
find the mode6t old-style house of the Secretary
of War, George W. McCrary. Mr. McCrary
was a prominent member of the House for
years. His wife is a quiet home body, and
makes an agreeable impression on strangers.
We note with pride that though our cabinet
officers are called often bo unexpectedly to their
high positions , it is very seldom we have reason
to blush for their wives. Mrs. McCrary is a
woman if you met ont you would not remember,
perhaps not note, but seeing her at home with
her children, her birds, her books and her flowers,
6he would at once please ; she dresses in na
tural tinted silks and modest ornament. Among
her visitors are many western people, who seem
to be devoted to the Secretary, and that is
doubtless the reason why the little body seems
so full of good intent to all the world. " No.
10, Lafayette Square," we eay to Phillip (our
coachman) as we again enter the carriage.
" No 10" is the house of the Secretary of the
Navy, Richard W. Thompson, and is a mansion
of many histories. Hero lived Gen. Daniel Sick
les, and from a certain window was waved the
death signal of Philip Barton Key. To this
house Schuyler Colfax brought, with smiling
mien, his envied bride, from it he crept away,
minus the respect of men. When we enter,
motherly Mrs. Thompson puts to flight our
memories, and we find many agreeable people, of
dui one oi wnom i win tell you, while we take
together a fragrant cup of tea, from cups that,
in this day of passion for fine china, may excite
a leeling of covetousness. It is Mrs. Frances
Hodgson Burnett, the author of " That Lass o'
Lowrie's," and many other much-read novels.
She is of English birth, but in childhood came
to America. She is one of the most dramatic and
voluble of conversationalists. In her book of
Dolly" 6hc was the veritable " Dollv." and
" Vagabondia" was her home. We do not even
catch a glimpse of Secretary Thomson. " Finish
ing nis new lecture, my dear." " Ah, yes, we
know," we sagaciously reply, for we have Been
that he is going to give a learned lecture on
Moses and the Red Sea," or something of
such nature. Now we must go to the former
mansion of Madame N. Scott Laughton, who
has bo recently lost her young husband, far
from home in Algiers, where Bhe had taken him
in vain Bcarch for health. Her beautiful home
is occupied by Carl Schurz. Secretary of the
Interior. Mr. Schurz's family consists of two
young ladies, and a baby-boy two years old,
which the mother left two years ago, an infant
charge to her young daughter. These young
lauies accept graceiuiiy tne responsible situation
of head of the Secretary's house. They have been
careiuuy educated m the best German manner
which includes more than the French or Ameri
can educational schedule. At the Ebbitt limine
we find Mrs. Key, wife of the Postmaster Gen
eral, assisted by Mrs. lyner, wife of the Assis
tant Postmaster General. Mrs. Key has wisely
left a large family in Tennessee she is Quite
genial, and has a heartiness of manner, called
here " Western." Mrs. Tyner is a pretty blonde,
Bhe was one ot the beautiful girls of the
Treasury, when 6he captured Mr. Tyner, then
a representative. Leaving the Ebbitt House we
stopped a moment to wish " bon voyage " to
Mr. and Mrs. George Collins Levey, who are iust
starting for Paris. It may be remembered that
Mr. Levey made a short visit to Honolulu, en
route to San Francisco from Melbourne. He was
commissioner from Australia to our Centennial,
and is also 6ent in the Bame capacity to the Paris
Exposition of 1878. He is a man of culture, and
that rara avis, a genial Englishman. His wife
leaves many friends in her old home. who. on bid
ding her adieu, wished her the great happiness
which she deserves. I then give directions for
Speaker Randall's, Capital Hill. You note we
do not pay our respects to the " department of
justice." it has no representative here socially.
at least, for Attorney General Charles DevenB is
not married, therefore not worthy of note fin
this sheet). In a meek, modest house on Capi-
tai nui lives tne speaker, lion, samuel J. Kan
dall, second only in grade to the President of the
United states. We are sorry he lives here, for
he is not poor, and people will have their Bay.
His wife is one of the least assuming women in
the land; she is good as she is fine-looking. His
young daughter is a youthful rendering of her
remarkably handsome lather, and is said to in
hcrit his talent, but through her modest shyness
she is seldom Been. Mrs. Randall is assisted by
her sister and niece, Mrs. and Miss JJurnctt. Mrs.
Randall and Mrs. Burnett are daughters of Aaron
Ward long time in Congress from New York
The death of King Victor Emanuel and Pio
Nono have given opportunity for great ceremo
nials in the Catholic Churches of Washington,
which by reason of the many foreigners of rank
the occasion is improved with much adorning of
gold lace and nodding plumes.
I he marriage of the young King of spam was
the opportunity of the Spanish Minister and
Mme. Mantilla giving a very regal reception
While I have not time to even touch upon the
royal splendor of this occasion, I will introduce
vou to the host and hostess. Senor Mantilla is a
portly man ot good presence, he has a genial
manner of shaking hands, and trying (most inef
fectually) to remember one's name. He is about
6ixty years of age, and seems to enter with pleas
ure ltto our ways though they mu6t jcem won
drous loose to the high-bred Don. Mme. Man
tilla is the perfect type of Andalueian beauty, her
hair is heavy and dark as night, her eyes are de
fined and large, her complexion has the rich
creaminess bo peculiar to that beauty-favored
country. On the evening of the fete Bhe was
radiant in white satin, over which was a webby
dress whose meshes were caught with pearls.
Her form is superb, with an arm that Phidias
might have sighed to model. Altogether a lovely
beautiful woman under thirty.
ibe Japanese Minister and Madame loshida
have recently entertained Washington very ele
gantly. Mme. Yoshida is a quiet little body, not
quite satisfied with her English, but very self-
possessed withal. Her husband is a man of cul
ture and progressive views. I would tell vou
about this fete, but we all have a regard for the
citizens of Honolulu, and I must close. By the
way, our regard for the Islands is fullv demon
strated by the sacrifice we have made in sending
to them General and Mrs. Comlv. E. B. J.
