Tnx people will hall with satisfaction
the decrease of the filibusters in congress.
Kiiank M. I a i.mkr has been appointed
postmaster at Chicago, vice Mr-Arthur,
Thk business men of Pittsburir have
ocnt a petition to congress tVmandinj;
the completion ot the count.
Thk eongresslonal filibusters have de
creased in numbvr rapidly since last
week, and It Is now probable that the j
count will go on.
Ex-Oovf.rxor Ukvkridor wishes to

Thk Illinois hou.c has passed a bill
providing "that no person In this state
shall be charged as acceptor on any bill
ol exchange or written order, unless his
acepUnce shall be In writing-, Mgned by
himsclt or his lawfully accepted agent."
Gov. Hayes made a speech in Spring
uld, Ohio, on Monday, in which he
said, "realizing his lack ot special fitness
tor the duties which he might be called to
perform, he placed his trust In Almighty
God who rules the destinies or all na
tions."' A few weeks ago he trusted i"
the Iouisiuna returning board and it did
not fail hi'Ji. We hope the Lord will be
as good to him as J. JJadison Weils and
his conlreres were.
Thk latest Republican defaulter to the
government is Gen. John McArthur,
postmaster at Chicago. He used fifty
five thousand dollars belonging to the
government In trying to bolster np some
failing manutactorlng business of his
own, and found himself unable to replace
the money. Last week he made an as
signment, going into voluntary bank
ruptcy. His liabilities are S12o,
000. his assets fSO.OOO. Gen. Mc
Arthur began borrowing from the gov
ernment kometime last summer, and has
been going behind ever since. He was
ppointed to the postmastershln by Pres
ident Grant in 1S72.
For the firat time in sixty-seven years
there will be no inauguration ball in
Washington on the evening ot the day
which sees a new president enter the
white house. There are two reasons lor
the omission of the customary fe.Uval
occasion. It is not a matter 01 cenainiy
that there will bean inauguration of a
regularly declared elected presi
dent of the Unite J Mates, and
till uncertainty has been adverse
to any preparations lor the celebration of
an event that may not happen. And the
last Inauguration ball was a lailure,
rlnancially as well as socially. The busl-

Sprague and others are not in a condition
to assist at such an enterprise
ri RXIftniXO THE WHITE II Ol BE.
With the Incoming of a new president
it has become customary to refurnish the
white house from garret to cellar, and
upholsterers and furniture dealers from
Cleveland, Boston, New 1 ork aud rniia
delphia are already "on hand" in Wash
ington with a view to obtaining the con
tract for supplying the executive roaR
slon with its new carpets, cur
tains, chairs, tables and all other ar
tides ot household use and
adornment. It has been the custom to
consult the wife ot the sew executive on
tbe subject, the color and patterns of the
carpets, the style of the sofas, chairs and
divans and the make of the coffee pots
and rolling pins; all this is left to her taste
and her orders are carried out accord
ingly. It has been ascertained that
Mrs. Hayes1 taste runs in light
blue, therefore it is probable that
under her dlrectlons.the white house will
be blue inside. But so tar, tho furniture
men have received no contract!, because
there have been no appropriations made,
and the immediate prospect is that Mrs.
Hayes will have to put up with Mrs.
Grant's "leavings," for a while at least.

The army appropriation bill, reported
in the house of representative last week,
"reduces the pay of the general ot tho
army to $11,000, lieutenant-general to
19,000, and major-generals to 7,000.
Below that grade the compensation is
not changed. Tbe bill contains a pro

The long article on the "Turkish Ques

dangerous crisis Is due, not to Turklsn
mUgoverntncnt, which united Europe
could easily deal with, but to exclusive
designs of Kussla, incompatible with
any such settlement.
John Locke is here spoken of as one of
the "bright particular stars" of the latter
part of the seventieth century, and the
author is called "a good biographer," to
whom the ingli.B public is deeply in
debted for the picture he has brought be

A PREMATCRE ABSEBTIOX.
Gen. McArthur the defaulting Chicago
postmaster Is denominated by the
Chicago Tribune as "in the strictest
sense a machine office-holder and pol
itician, and an active and prominent mem
ber ol the anti-reform taction ot the Re
publican party the taction that fought so
desperately against Bristow, Washburne
and Hayes at Cincinnati and lor
Logan at Springfield. He is not
a Hayes Republican and the naves
administration cannot be held responsi
ble for this discreditable defalcation."
This will be proved when it is found
what kind of men Hayes appoints
to office. He hat not yet signified that
he is going to throw over the anti-reform
faction, and take at his advisers and co
laborers tbe Bristews and Washburnes
of the party. It Is given out
that he will stand by his
letter of acceptance, but this is a predic
tion, not the statement of a fact. Per
sonally, he is claimed to be above re
proach, but tho man who has been con
vinced that he was "honestly elected" by
the Louisiana returning board, will be
excused for feeling kindly toward the men
who wen instrumental in getting him
counted in, and toward the whole cor
rupt brood who said amen to the pro
cess. And there has been no division in
tho party on tho question of counting
him hi. On this, the Brls
tows and the Babcocks, the Wash
burnes and the Wellses, tho Medills and
tho alcKecs have Blood shoulder to
shoulder, a solid phalanx that has known
no variableness nor shadow ol turning.
In the distribution of the offices Hayes
may separate the cheep from the goats.
but If he does, he will show great ingrati
tude to tbe goats, and it will then be
proper to repudiate such defalcations as
McArthurs as being foreign to the spirit
of his administration.
Aa latereatlna- Letter frons tti
ftlowery Nlat Hometbinsr About
the Allifalor Hotel aud Baartllaij-Mouaca-Polltleal,
Palatka. Fla., Feb. 20, 1877.
Mr Dear Father : In writing to you
ot this "land of flowers," yon do not
wish me, I suppose, to make use of a
flowery pen so much as a truthful one.
It seems to be the general impulse ot
tourists on first arriving In the state to
be filled with a childishly enthusiastic-
delight in everything around them ; to
feel a new joy in livtng, slnee tbey have
discovered a new and charming world.
The awakening, II any comes. Is after a
long stay has gradually brought to their
knowledge the disadvantages which this
country certaiuly possesses, in common
with all other countries on the globe.
The way In which this revela
tion U received depends on the
nature ol the persons. Some never
recover from tbe Indignant surprise with
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 1877.
which they discover the first flaw In their
supposed paradise ; while others take tho
good and bad philosophically, enjoying
the one and making the best of tlie other.
You will remember that I arrived in
Florida the latter part Ol November,
having lingered In Baltimore just long
enough to feel the disagreeable fleet of
the first keen cold, and In my walks along
Its frosty pavements, to be dlsngreoably
Impressed with the nuiffied up pedestri
ans hurrylnj along with their blue,
impassive laces. But November In
Florida has quite a different air, and I
find that these same blue-nosed, reserved
Baitimorians, when transplanted to this
genial atmosphere, blossom out into the
most perfect specimens of tha smiling,
Indolent, happy lounger, Tho looks
pleasantly Into the laces ho meets, and
gets np a friendly chat in defitmce ot the
rules ot etiquette at home.
. TIE ALLIGATOR CRirSADK, . "
It is, and always has been, a delight to
me to look back to my first day in
Florida ; to recall the lazy comfort I took
in the warm sunshine, and the soft at
mosphere with Just a whimper of a breeze
in it , to feel almost a child again as I
plunged my feet deep Into tho warm,
white sand, and sauntered slowly along
the streets of Jacksonville, finding every
thing ot Interest, because everything
was new and strange. .
When I stopped under an orange tree
to admire Its glossy, green foliage and
tempting Iruit, or nnder a majestic live
oak to catch at the long, graceful hang
ing moss, I was not afraid of being smiled
at as a specimen of verdancy, for here
we have a country of the most delightful
unrestraint The winter season is a jrrand
holiday, aud all unnecessary forms
and conventionalities are done away
with. You will, by that, understand
that 1 did not hesitate to form one of a
crowd that Is always congregated before
a 'Florida Curiosity Shop," to take my
turn at poking up the halt-torpid little
alligators in their water trunks, and to
shy away with an instinct ot fear and re
iiulsion, at the huge "ten-footer" tied to
a tree. By way of parenthasis, 1 will re
mark that tbe alligator, or "gaiter, ' as
it Is commonly called. Is the pride ot the
native Floridian, and he presses it on the
"Yankee's" notice in all styles, stufled,
varnished, wetdry, dead and alive, and
in all stages between. And not being
contented with that he forces you to
wear the reptiles' teeth as ear-rings,
broaches and watch-guards ; carves bis
ugly image on your walking sticks
and parasols, and then ofiers the oil as a
sure cure for all the diseases flesh is heir
to. It takes a well poise mind, 1 assure
yon, to with-stand tbe alligator crusade.
The first thing to claim tba attention
of visitors Is, of course, the hotels and
boarding houses, and the nnmber of them
very nearly corresponds to the number
of houses. I cannot speak so well of the
accommodations they offer. The accu
sation ot exorbitant charges is, 1 think,
unfair, when the shortness of tbe busy
season is considered, and the unpro
ductiveness iff the soil. The large hotels,
in both Jacksonville and Palatka, com
mand four dollars per day. Tbe rooms
and parlors are elegantly furnished, the
servants remarkably well tra ned, and
the table everything that the most fastid
ious epicure could desire; while the pro
prietors are unceasing in their efforts to
furnish amusement to their guests.
The boarding houses are superior to
any I have known in the North, East cr
West, and myriads of invalids and pleasure-seekers
in moderate circumstances
find comfort aud kind attention withlu
their walls for the consideration of two
dollars per day. Still cheaper board can
be obtained in private families, though I
believe tho price never goes below ten
dollars per week. Tho number of visitors
to Florida this winter la said to be far
below the average; but the Inhabitants
account tor It by the hard times ; the
fatigue of the people over the Centennial,
and their consequent dislike for another
trip so soon ; and, lastly, the prevailing,
but erroneous opinion at the North that
political troubles were imminent in
Florida. The spirit of tho Southern
peoplo is crushed to such an
extent by the miserably hard times
tbey have had since the war, that they
will keep peaco at almost any sacrifice.
It would be a heart of stone that could
come Into the?e poor Southern homes,
stripped of almost everything but the
bare walls, and see the struggle it has
been lor the inmates to get a mere liveli
hood and not feel tbe greatest compas
sion for them. Any bitterness ol feeling
they may have entertained towards peo
ple from the North has entirely disap
peared, and settlers as well as visitors
are welcomed with sincere cordiality.
Being a woman, and therefore imper
fectly versed la political matters, 1 touch
on them deprecatingly and apologetically.
But I notice that not only among the na
tive born Southerners, but among the
settlers from the North, there Is a quiet,
but deep aud earnest desire
for the Democracy to come
Into power, It may be au
item ot Intercut to you that 1 have not to
my knowledge, met a Republican, sluoo
1 came iuto the state. I think that about
the ouly representatives ot the party are
those holding government offices. Re
publicans coming Into the state to settle,
aud thus identify themselves with the
Interests of the state, work around to the
Democratic side In a short time.

since. But my remark on this subject.
Which cannot , be favorable, must be
taken to apply only to Eaitern Florida,
and more - particularly to the country
along the banks of the St. John's river.
If the prosperity of a country depended
on thafertUily of its soil, methlnks tbe
beautiful waters of tho St. John's
would ripple through a quiet
uninhabited country from its tcoarceto
the sea. Florida owes Its prosperity
to its delightful, life-giving climate. The
Inhabitants, Instead of being tillers of the
soil, are keepers ot boarding houses.
SWEET rOTATOKS OVKBDOKK.
A man, meetings fellow-townsman on
the street, will ask not how "the crops"
are, bnt"how many consumptive Yankee s
same In on the boat last night r" A
native being asked "what do you live on
down here?" replied, "on Y'ankeeslu tho
winter, and sweet-taters in the summer."
It is needless to add that they much
prefer the Yankee. You remember that
I used to like sweet-potatoes. When our
landlady here passed me the fried swect-
poU toes at the breakfast table I made her
happy by telling of my taste for them,
and 1 also partook of sweet-potato cakes
with the remark that it was a new and
charming dish, At dinner I graciously
accepted a large boiled sweet-potato, and
and when the dessert came around,
debated lor some time be
tween the respective merits of a sweet
potato pie aud a sweet-potato pudding.
I smiled blandly at supper over the
sweet-potato hash, but ever since that
day 1 have abstained trora the sweet
"apple of the earth" in all its enticing
shapes It being necessary to eat some
thing, I tried hominy hominy cakes iu
the morning, hominy with gravy for din
ner, hominy fritters for supper, etc. The
most that can be said for it is its cheap
ness and its "filling up" quality. The
greater part of the vegetables in market
are shipped here trotu more productive
regions, and at a high price. This end
less stretch of sand certainly could not
give much delight to a farmer's eye.
It is indeed almost unproductive until it
As I would like to close this letter with
a little Florida patriotism, I will choose
the theme ot the weather. My most
glowing eulogies eould not exaggerate
the delights ot th!s climate at the pres
ent time. The whole town turns out
every afternoon and saunters around
over the sidewalks, or out In little boat
ing parties, with no object but to bathe
In tbe warm, sweet sunshine.
There is a peculiar charm in the air
it Is not enervating as I bad supposed it
to be. You drink it Into your lungs as
if it were the veritable elixir sought here
so many years ago. It floats around
you, soft, warm and balmy, making you

dren and it is a Joy simply to live.
