Mistakes of a Majority.

Tho Washington correspondent of
the Nines and Courier, writing to that
paper, under date 28th ult., lias this
to sny of the House of Representatives:
"The present Congress bids lair to
be known as a Congress of mistakes.
I refer simply to the Democratic
majority in the House, which has
shown neither w'sdom nor statesman
ship thus far. The chcosc-paring
policy of Messrs. Randall and Hol
man can never command tho support
of the American people. We arc not
niggardly as a ration. The intelli
gence of the country favors fair sal
aries to competent men. Meagre
salaries promote negligence and
peculation, It is a penn/-wisc, pound
foolish policy which places ?neu in re
sponsible positions and pays them
mere laborers' wages. Yet, this is the
policy Messrs. Randall and Hoi man
are urging upon the House, ami lo
which they are committing tho
Democratic party. With what con
sistency can Mr. Randall advocate,
the cutting down of the pay of pro
fessors and cadets at West Point when
he advocated the increased pay to
Congressmen in the Forty second Con
gress, and dc.ended, pocketed and
kept the bach pay, otherwise known as
the salary grab? Tbc popular de
mand for retrenchment and reform
will not be met by cutting down tho
salaries of a lew clerks, or uf men who
have served their country faithfully
and well. We pay our public. Ser
vituts to day less than any other
country in Christendom, and an in
crea/sc of salaries in certain quarters
would boa wiser policy than the pro
posed who osale icduct ion. There are
plenty of leaks to he stopped without,
resorting to such expedients as this to
lessen the drain upon the treasury.
The cutting down of iitiy dollars there
does not look well when contrasted I
with the, giving-away ofiV"0 million
and a half of the public money to a
I do not regard the passage of an
amhc?iy hill as of very great inipnr
.tanco, inn it is very evident the meas
ure Would have passed but for the
mistakes Mr. Randall made in his
management of it; Am.1 bud be shown
the wisdom to he expected in a party
leader, Mr. II ill would not. have bud
an opportunity to place his associates
in false position; Mr. Iilaino in assume
the role oJ a hyena, or Con, Banks to
cover himself with glory by deliver
ing the only statesmanlike speech of
this debate. Possibly the 1 louse may
redeem itself later in the session. It
li to be hoped it wl.'l. Rut thus far it
not only has gained nothing on its op
ponents^ but has actually lost ground
in public estimation, and dimmed the
Democratic prospects for success in the
coming Presidential election. Ther
is nothing to he gained by concealing
the truth, nor in this regard can it be
conccalud, for the facts stated are
notorious to all intelligent observers

A Champion Snori'Eh.?She
swept into our largest dry goods store,
says the Baltimore Gazette, with that
easy grace that belongs as a birth
right to Baltimore's fair daughters,
stopping at the glove counter. The
polite clerk rushed forward lo wait
on her, with a note of interrogation in
each eye. She asked for kid gloves.
"Yes'm, what si/.e'm ?" A gorgeous
pull back passed her, and she turned
to look at it, and then ejaculated:
"Kid gloves." "Yes'm, what sizo'm ?"
"Why, Miss Sue, how do you do?
I laven't seen you for an age," etc.
Good-bye," and she turns to the pad
cut clerk and transfixes lriui with a
stony stare, und again demands, in tin
injured tone : "Kid gloves." "Yes'm,
what si/.e'm V" asked the somewhat
excited clerk. "Oh, why, live and
Tho box, containing six do/en of
every conceivable shade, is placet! be
fore her. Carefully she looks at each
one of the seventy-two pairs, draws
some seventeen pairs out of their var
ious packages, bursts the bauds that
held them in dozens, sind then re
marks : "Why, I wanted black
gloves." The box containing the black
kids is produced, a similar process of
disarranging the stock is gono
through, and d pair arc finally selec
ted. "How much tire they ?" chirps
the fair one. One dollar ami seventy
five cents," replies lib ofthc yardstick.
"Oh, my gracious ! Tell hells them
for fifty cents." Yardstick explains
that the goods would cost three times
that .sum, etc., goods must be damag
ed to sell at that price. Lady admits
that they arc somewhat damaged, but
just as good; gets mad and flounces
out of the store.
Til is I'nrssiAX Akmy.?Tin; rank
and file in the Prussian army arc
miserably paid and poorly led, accord
ing to our idea?. Tbc Court Journal
gives some interesting statistics con
cerning this matter. Tbc only ration
which a priv ate soldier receives in
peace is one and one-half pounds ol
coarse bread. His pay is thirty-six
thalers a year, or about nine shillings
a month; from this a deduction cl one
and one-fourth groschon, or about one
and one-half pence a day is made lor
messing, and to this is added an allow
ance made, by government, which
varies according to the garrison, and
is fixed quarterly. On the winde, it
I may be said that each German soldier
has a bowl of gruel or codec in the
morning and one meal in the middle
! of the day provided for him, also thai
he lias about two and one-half pence
remaining over irbni his pay to pro
vide his supper. There is no fixed
rate of pay for the non commissioned
ranks. A bargain is made with each
non-com mi.v ioned officer from time to
time, according to the value oi'his ser
vices. But after they leave the army
they arc well provided for, ami it. is
wholly unknown tiiaf?**n deserving
non-com missioned officer should be
necessitated to seek employment, after
he has served his time, because he is
unprovided for.^ j _ , ,
IIOW uk J>11> It.?The Jntlcpcuii
mux ./>'<//<? tell a story of a priest who
during the Jubilee mis-ion was ex
cessively disappoint oil at finding none
but fa male listeners to hi* sermon. Oh
the day before Iiis final minist ration
he thus suldressed Ids congregation :
"It is a gicut comfort to us that you
have duly confessed your sins every
day to us, but. that is not chough; we
wish to sec your husbands, fat hers,
brothers present also. Tell them,
therefore, that it' they will assemble
here to-morrow I will teach them how
to make an excellent pair ol shoes in
five minuter;." As might be expected,
the church oh the ensuing day was
crowded to overflowing, when the
priest having giving his hearers a les
son on their duties told them that, as
no doubt curiosity bat! brought them
there, be would now gratify it. and
.stooping down betook u pair of'hoots
from the door, and in five niiu'ttes
shaped them with a shears into a
serviceable pair of shoes.
How ir May hi: Donk.?.Some
body wrote lb the editor of an agricul
tural paper to a.-k how lie would
''break ah ox ?" The editor answered
as, follows: If only one ox. a good
way would be lo hoist him, by means
of a chain attached to Iiis fad, to the
top of a polo forty feet fiom the
ground. Then hoist him by n rope

friend, and here's lo his health !" spoke
tip the sighing lover its he drank oll*u
bottle filled with a mixture which he
supposed lo be laudanum. Jhit when
the emetic, which a shrewd druggist
had given instead of laudanum, began
to work, his girl just held his hat to
save the carpet, and then dragged
him out oil the doorsteps by the hair
of his head. Ho has no longer any

Convontion of Southern Republi
A printed \eii culnr has been issued
from Charleston and sent to largo
numbers of Republican! in the South
ern States, inviting their co operation
in holding'a Convention of Southern
Republicans to consult on the inter
ests of the party and devise mearsn. es
for putting it on a heller looting. The
circular so?3 forth that seven yeais
ago the Republicans were in possession
of every State which had joined the
war for secession except Virgin in, and
that tit present there are only two in
which thd party has a clear ascend
ancy, ten _being completely dead three
more yiiSj?j?itfy in tho hands of the
Democrats. It goes on to state that
these losses have occur mil in spite of
the great advantage for tho Republi
cans that-the whole inilucnce of the
Federal Government has been active
ly exerted on their side with the whole
olli co-holding clement in both State
and National positions The circular
uttribu tcs these sweeping reverses to
the bad management of the Republi
can party in the South, and suggests
that if the party is not to be title ly
wrecked and destroyed it must at once
put an end to the ascendancy of lead
ers whose unwise, selfish and corrupt
practices have loaded the party down
with disjrracc aud disasters, and
threatens! its extinction even in the
two Staates of which it still; retains
possession. The trouble with our Re
publican friends i" the South is that
if they ."unload" all the bad nu n in
the party there won't he anv party

raphy'are something fearful to con
