A Washington disnatch to thu New

under extraordinary obligations to thu
Hon. William R. lloirhon of Illinois,
and that theso obligations constituted the
reason for putting Mr. Morri'im at the
head of tlie commltteo on ways and

"But for Morrison, Kerr would proha-

Somo one said tliat "ceiemony" Is tlio
handmaid of "society." but In mr onln-
ton, shu Is thn master. This l.s true, nt
least. Ill Washington, when; imllllea :unl
ceremony rule pretty much everything
In no other city in the Tnlon. nnd irv
few outside of It, except Loudon and
Paris, are tho Iron rules of ceremony so
strictly enforced and so obediently ob
served; and thu study of books and
pamphlets on the subject occupies no 111
tlo time of the wives and daughters of
the senators nnd members who propose
to make their debut hero this season.
Though Urn season may be said to hao
commenced with Tlianksrlvlii!r l)av. vet
it does not attain full vigor until Nuw
Years; but from then nud until Ash
Wednesday It flourishes lii nil ,IU glory.
A most import-nit part ot It Is "calls."
The woman who moves In society must
make calls to be called upon ; if she does
not, she will tlnd her parlors empty on
reception days and (what Is to some far
more important) her name out of the
newspapers, l'or tho record ol recep
tions nnd social events, with mention ol
those present nnd a complete description
or me iviinte journalism and raiira nilly
as high as, if not higher than, the record
or congressional events.
Congress having adjourned till after the
holidays, and the past week having been
unusually dull, w ith the one exception of
Christmas day, your correspondent will
devote tills letter to a brief description or
classification of "calls" and "callers," n
they exist here in Washington. The
former mavbedhided Into live ilUtlnel
classes, and those who make them into
three, the five kinds of calls are: Con
gratulatory, of condolence, of Invitation,
olllclal, nud four mniYeon;r. The three
elates of callers arc: Those who call as
liicnds: thosu who call as a matter ot
duty, ow ing to tliclr otlicl.nl po.-ition, and
tho-c who call because others do and be
cause they want to "show oft'." Thu lat
tcr cl.is finds itrcprcsentntivcii chiefly
amongst transient visitors to tlio seat of
government, who want to Improve the
opportunity by seeing everything, from
the dome of th' capitol to the back-
Mtclicu of the Secretary of State, nnd
who could never leave the Capita! for
home in u contented state of inlud unless
tiiey c-arricd with them thu proud con
viction that they had shaken hands with
the President, criticised Mrs. Oram'
dress, aud taken a glass of wiuu at the
reception of some indue ot the supreme
caurt or member of the cabinet
As for the call-, the two first elates
(congratulatory and of condolence), are
Indulged in as occasion demands. It I

only, Is left iu the drawing room ; but

placed to receive them, in the meptlon

uuieiar cans are an institution nc-
cnii.-rto Washington, and are purely
formal. Ceremony directs the the wives
ol cabinet oflicirs to call upon the wife
of the president at stated periods; the
wives of senators must call upon the
cabinet ladles; thu wives of members
upon the wives of senators: and soon.

thu order, and so stated to mo before I
left you, and bufuru General Uabcock had
an opportunity lo speak to you on thu
subject, as hu was not present at thu
time, and I am qulto ccrtlan that you ar
rived nt this conclusion during our Inter
view. I nm confident therefore, that
(en. Uncock could not have Influenced
you In revoking tho ordered rcterrcd to

was In Hiy Judgment for tho best Inter

It Is. well for honesty and Justice that he

A very trial as the averago American
clll.ens, he would never hnvo "give hlm
sell away" 11 that style. The president
tl d suspend tho order that day or that
night, lor the day had closed when Tut
ton left, and oh the morning following
Daiiglas telegraphed Joyce :
Wamiiiniiion, Feb. 5, 1875.
C ol. John A. Joyce, Itevenue, iigeut,
St. Louis: The order directing vou to
report to Supervisor .McDonald nt'Phllu
dclphla 011 the fifteenth is suspended.
J. W. Doi:cit.Ass, Commissioner.
And the same morning the follow inu
went over thu wire :
Wasiiinciion, Feb. 5, 1fc"f.
(!en. John McDonald, St. Louis: Order
bursted forever. D. & Co. Douglass
and lirlstow'1 mad. Hold things level.
And Tutton, dancing about to hide
Uabcock, Munn, Logan, McDonald and
all the rest behind hlm, shouts to the
country, "1 did It," ns if everybody
could scent 11 glance that thu obsequious
Otinkcr had only been ptillliiir the ring's
chestnuts nut of liristnw's lire. Within
half a clu.eti hours Tutton settled (Iih
whole business and thu order ol transfer
was issued January 'J7, and Douglass, lu
his testimony, says:
"A great prcs.ure was nt once brought
to bear on the president and he finally
ordered that the order oftrauslcr bu re
voked. 1 had a conversation with Uab
cock In regard to the withdrawal ol this
order. This conversation w ith Uabcock
was had between thu date ut
which the order was Issued uud thu
date at which it was ret-nki-d .1.J"'. Mr
dent's room at the Wfilto House, whither
I had cither been summoned or had gone;
011 biuluess. Hu told inc that he thought
the order making the transfer was a
great mistake. It would bilng great
pressure to bear upon tlio president by
parties desiring to secure Its annulment.
He also told mo It would bo qulto a re
llectloii 011 inc If It were annulled, as all
failures of olllclal schemes act thus cm
tho-o proposing them. Dining the two
exciting days when the fate of the order
was uncertain many persons called on
tue unit 1 could not remember them all,
I know that Munn, supervisor ol Illinois,
called on me and subsequently brought
Gen. John Logan to luiliience me. It
soon became generally understood that I
was tlxed in my purpose and they let ine
nlone, going, I presumed, to the White
House tocllect their purposes."
During these "two exciting days" Mr.
Douglass speaks of, "when the late of
tho order was uncertain," Joyce tele
graphed from St. Louis as follows:
.Sr huis, Feb. 3, 1S7"i.
(jcn. O. -.. Uabcock, L'xicutlve Man
sion, Washington : We have oflle lal In
formation that thu enemy weakens. Push
And yet Mr. Tutton writes : "I iim
quite confident that General Uabcock
would not have Influenced vou lu revok
ing the order."
