Imr the dar net anart by previous
arrangement, tie Hoase of Itcprc-
aentatives met xna proceeded to
'consider xepods firoai the Indian
Comouitee. Tae Erst thing offered
tu a resofofiaB to investigate the
"Leasing: of Indian Lands to citi
zens of the United States, &c"
this was adopted without a division
and approenates two thousand dol
:lure of Uie contingent fund of the
House, with which to meet the ex
jMmses f the investigation. The
resolution authorizes the commit
ter to enquire inio the payment by
the National Council of 7 1-2 per
cent of the $300,000 to attorneys j
alao the refassd of the ojuncil to
allow the Shawnecs and other a-

-The hill ftr the extension of the
Kansas Cityr SU Scott &. Gulfrail
road was reported, after which, on
motion of 3Cr. Wclborn, Chairman
of the committee, .the Gulf, Col
orado and Santa Fe railroad bill
was taken up and resd by sectides,
and after ionr hours spent in a half
jiearxea, laeneciuai aiaunpi at
amendmento, presumably to pro
tect the Ionian, the hill was passed
writhout material change, as origi
nally reported, in so far as the
rights of the owners of the soil are
concerned witheat a quorum.
The Gordiaa being cut, on motion
of Jfr. Perkins of Kansas, the bill
I to antisoeiae the construction of the
KSoathern Xansas EaUway through
xbe Inauui lerntory was passed
wiUwot deiattc and without a vote.
Speaker Carlisle ha, wittingly or
nnwittinfly, in the formation of
the Indian Committee of the
Honse,aggregted the quintessence
of want of faith, disrecard of sol-
', ", ,. -j laiuuc, cue ji
eaan promise and moral oUhquityigj j
JIUWCCTTO VJ U". -ZULU- V.UIJclUO.
The pacnape of these bills breaks
down every oarrier heretofore sup
posed to exist for the protection of
the Territory from white settle
ment, and should the railroadmen
sot find their Candine forks in the
WLumcLa ttio nnAqtfnr nf nnpninir nn
I the Indian Territory will nave been
settled. The scheme for the pas
sage of these hills was cunningly
devised, and a time fixed when few
members were likely to be present
the Chicaco convention bavin; -
undeniably solid, it has taken long
whiles to arouse the public spirit,
which is but just now rubbing its
sleepy eyes, looking about to see
what its neiebbors arc doinc. There
is a visible separation from the la
mentable stinginess which has
characterized her past. For years
there have been no boulevards such
as are now ncaring completion ; the
drives have been limitcd,and there
has been no driveable road down
town, and the authorities fail to
loggerheads annually concerning
the various material to be used in
the construction of paving. While
they quarreled, we continued to
hump over chuck-holes and slreotb
tessclated with car-rails, those evil
inventions which have strained the
ingenuity of the driyer and the pa-r
tiepco of the rider through a grade
of years. Then St. Louis persists
in situating herself on the west
bank of the river, so all of our
drives have been in the face of the.
sun for few have the ency to
drive while the sun is in the east.
Not that she has unseated herself
of late,or that Old Sol has changed
his path for our accommodation,
but our drives arc widening, north
and south, and are not all in the
one tiresome straight and narrow
way which alone 'leads to enjoy
ment. Unfortunately we have not
the heights of Cincinnati nor the
lake of Chicago. We have no rock
ribbed shore on which to playpolo,
and no sands on which to pose in
questionable attire. Moreover,
prairies are undoubtedly fine insti
tutions in their way, but never
much advertised as summerresorts.
Still we have a modicum of com
fort, and the unusual temperature
this year has greatly swelled the
ranks of the cant.get-awa3-s, by
numoers woo do not care to go
when life is endurable at home.
Vc have Creve Coeur, a lovely
lake, whero men of the regatta
sport. A race,as far as the pulling
of sculls is concerned, is a tame af
fair.for the mid-continent folks arc
not up in boating matters. We
have not the moving stands of the
cast and one Is confined to a watch
of the start, and after the first half
mile the oarsmen are invisible.
Then one must simply wait, roast
and conjecture as to strokes and de
tails of the race. Still it is a nov
elty, and while the excitement is
un the ladies wear club colors and
take a hearty interest in the oared
Tally-ho parties are a something
fresh for Vanity Fair, and it is
quite the thing for a party to climb
into a coach, and. with liveried
footmen, cuard. and vellow-bootcd
driver withsix horses, to dash off
amid a grand blowing of the her
ald's bugle. At the park there is a
noticeable new notion, coming with
the season the village carts and
the yellow-wheclcd tilbury adopted
by young ladies. The affair is ex
actly like a dump-cart,with a slight
variation in the matter of a seat,
two staitling wheels, and the most
strikingly complexioned horse
available ; spotted and polka-dotted
equininity being the popular
style. The animal wears yellow
rosettes, to match the wheels, I
infer. Driving in these pumpkins,
the girls wear reception toilets,
very gay, and quite a change from
the usual gray of the driving dus
ter. They cannot rest back against
the seat and enjoy a smooth road,
hut, with a backbone of Scotch
granite, must sit bolt upright,rcady
for the emergency sure to come.
One's balance is easier gotten on a
three-decker in a gale of wind.
Each pebble by the road imparts a
tip and a tilt r each movement a
muscle of the beast gives a jerk,
and a biting fly threatens a spilL
The men never affect this novelty,
theT know better. A girl can toss
and twist, spring and bounce right
gracefully ; and if she is pretty,
has good clothes, and laughs well,
it is amme ilfavt, and she is right
to take close advantage of her ev
ery privilege. But a man is seen
to best advantage in full possession
of his equipoise. The tilbury and
other clumsy English carts, which
htvj crowded out the tasty buggy,
have hitherto been a sign of ex
clusivcncss, but now the Hobsons
have them for hire, and with their
privacy departs their sole charm.
It is safe to predict their dismissal
next season, and folly must invent
a new- order of vehicle for those
who must display their ability to
swell. If the demoiselle drives
alone, she has her dog on the scat '
and he is robed to
match. If she be a blonde and
most jnrls choose to be that his
woolly mightiness is blanketed in
blue ;" and quality dogs wear coth
urns exactly resembling the bus
kins of stage tragedy.
St. Louis has been very like a
certain two-legged feathered ani
mal, of which Carlyle has written,
saying: "If you draw a distinct
chalk-circle around him, he sits
imprisoned as if girt with the iron
nng of late, and he will die there.
cannot crasn that nice distinction
which closes dry goods stores and
opens the saloons. For no man
ever wanted a cigar on Sunday
morning one-half as bad as a des
perate, half-dressed woman rants
mayhap a paper of pins, a few hair
pins or a pair of kids to replace
the pair just burst. It is a vexed
question, on which is lost much
amiability and handsome rhetoric.
There has been a settling down bo
hind the bar. and the keepers defy
the law and drink out of pure
"brimstoncness of disposition."
The gamblers fared hardly ,and our
city is well cleaned so thoroughly
that a party of young society mon
were arrested in the private room
of one, while piaying at poker. So
fluctuates our morality. We are
done to death in the way of the
sensational, a condition of all large
cities. Just new man is busy blow
ing dust into his neighbor's eyes,
in anticipation of the coming polit
ical contest. And the looker-on
expects startling personal news be
fore the close of the j-ear.
We had a May party on Sweet
water creek, May 30th, given by
our efficient school teacher, Miss
Betty Smith, and taking all the
drawbacks into consideration, it
was a success in every sense of the
word. The queen was crowned and
speeches dolivered by the children,
some of whom will make a high
mark in the future if they receive
as good training hereafter as they
have had for the last two terms of
