There wns no reception on Saturday at tlio
White House, tho President being away, but in
his absence the house Is being put into its sum
mer dress of matting, and the furniture covered
with linen covers. The verandah in front looks
invitingly cool in the shade of pay, new awn
ines, with bamboo settees and chairs scattered
about. It takes flvo hundred yards of matting
to cover the lloor of tho East Room alone, and
that put down is pure white, fine, aud of the
best quality. Tho festive tourist, eager for
souvenirs, gathers up tho corners and strips
cut from tho straw carpet and canies them away
to put to ornamental uses at home. The fresh
matting smells as odorously sweet as a newly
mown haj'-ficld with the dew upon it.
Mrs. Morton has been one of the benefactors
of the llouse of tho Good Shepherd, in -which
she has taken sufllcient interest to secure tho
sisters considerable work, and also to call the
attention of Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. McKce to
the humane mission of tho sisters in charge.
Considerable work from the Executive Mansion
has recently been given to this institution. The
new House of the Good Shepherd is located
near Georgetown, aud the sisters are in expec
tation of moving to it in August. The house
on Ninth street was once the family residence
of Admiral Smith, of the Navy. His daughter,
Miss Anna E. Smith, transferred the property
only a few years ago to the Sisters of the Good
Shepherd. The needs of the house soon out
grew Its size, and the sisters found it impossi
ble to carry on their good work as they wished,
as the house did not contain sufllcient room for
the inmates, who are in charge of six sisters.
All kinds of fine sewing, embroidery, and,fancy
work is done in the institution. At the new
house tho Inmates will have the pleasure and
comfort of ample grounds, and there will be
rooms enough to accommodate one hundred.
Now only forty-six can be received. The
House of the Good Shepherd was incorporated
in this city in 1S83. The incorporators were
Sister Mary Thomas, Sister Mary Martin, Alice
L. Riggs, Harriet Loring, Anna E. Smith, Mrs.
S. S. Barbour, Mrs. R. T. Merrick, Dr. T. B,
Loring, Mr. E. Francis Kiggs, and Mr. Martin
The marriaire of Mrs. Kate Chorpenning and
Mr. Walter E. Wright, which was solemnized
at the parsonage of St. Patrick's Church in thl6
city on Thursday evening last, the 2Sth instant,
is the happy consummation of a purpose neces
sarily developed in consequence of the bride's
health, and truly a joining of bands where
hearts have pulsated in unison for years. Their
marriage is, to use a metaphor, the realization
of early hopes aud ambitions. They were
friends in youth and lovers, became separated,
and the bride married her first husband, who
died about eight years since. They now unite
the love of eighteen years ago. Mrs. Chorpen
ning was becomingly attired in a handsome
dove-colored pattern dress, with bonnet and
gloves to match. Their wedding was informal
and quiet, no friends being invited to witness
the ceremony or to extend their congratulations
upon their return Home alter us penormance.
This course was pursued in deference to the
wishes of the bride, whose health, while not yet
fully restored to its normal condition, is, her
multitude of friends are happy to know, sufli
cieutlv recovered to permit tho culmination of
the event of Thursday. Mrs. Wright possesses
one of the sunniest dispositions, and numbers
her friends by the score. She was the recipient
of many valuable and beautiful tokens of their
esteem and regard. All unito in congratulating
both, but particularly the groom, in securing so
valuable a helpmate, aud in wishing them long
life, unalloyed happiness, and unlimited pros
perity. In former years Mr. Wrlsht, who now
fills a responsible position in the Government
Printing Office, was an active and Influential
member of the Washington Light Infantry
Corps, tho city's crack military organization.

spring blossoms, and quantities of .fragrant
pink roses massed either in jars or set in great

arch made of mosses, ferns, and vines. The
bride wore an exquisite traveling costume of
