From our rceulsr Correspondent.)
Washington, January. 18, 1879.
Last evening was the first Presidential
reception of the season, und thinking you
might care to hvo it described, I betook
myself thither at half past eight o'clock.
Tho gas-lit carriuge-way semicircle in front
of tho White House was full of vehicles
of various sizes, styles, and heraldic inscrip
tion, but all con lined to ono or two horse
power. There was less display of livery
than you would sou on halt that number of
carriges in Europe, but still there was
enough. Home of the drivers made no fur
ther ostentation thnt a close buttoned over
coat and a Bilk hat. A majority ot the call
ers mule and fomale come afoot. In tho
brilliantly lighted anto-clmmhi r the red
coated Murine Rand were pluying such en
chanting dnnco musio that some belles
seemed unable to walk straight, and en
tered the cloak room in a half waltz. In
th cloak room we removed
our hats and overcoa's which wero
placed in a largo numbered pig-con-hoto
anil a cheek bearing the eorrcs
pomlii.? nuniln-r handed us. After care
fully admiring a large mirror, we were ready
to swarm up and bo presented. Through a
large open door we could see the president
and Mrs. Hayes industriously smiling and
shaking hands. Pronouncing our names to
Mr. Webb Hayes, who stands on the loft of
Ids father and nearest (he door, he conveys
the sound to the president who shakes
hands in an urbane, busiuessdike way, call
ing the name of eaeh visitor. The presen
tations to Mrs. Hayes, who was standing
two steps to the right, were made by Colo
nel Casey, in the same manner. The next
step wus to move on and join the great
throng that had already shaken and passed
into the east room. Here everybody was
promenading, talking with their acquain
tances, flirting in a dignified way, or ad
Hiiring the dresses of the dressy, the styles
of the stylish, and the airs of the airish.
When you consider with your eyes the visa
ble woman, what do you look for? The
woman invisible. The words which enter
your ears, the gestures, the motions of hor
head, the clothes she wears, visible acts and
deeds of every kind, are expressions merely,
somewhat is revealed beneath them. An
inner woman is concealed beneath the outer
woman; the latter does but reveal, the for
mer. You look at her dres, and that
in order to discover her habits and
tastes, the degree of her refinement
or rusticity, her extravagance or
her economy. You listen to her conversa
tion, and you note the inflection ot her
voice, and changes ot her attitudes; and
that in order to judge of her intensity, her
self-forgetfulness or her constraint. Of
course, all this cool bravery of criticism is
on the supposition that you are not in love
with her. Rut let us presume."
On this occasion a group of Ute Indian
chiefs who had come to the reception in
their moccasins, beads, and many colored
blankets were the chief attraction, and
their immobile, smileless, melancholy faces
presented a strange contrast with the gay
and brilliant throng that surounded them.
The general of the army w as present in
uniform, as usual, attentive to the ladies,
some of whom be introduced to tho Indi
ans. Among the distinguished persons
present were the chief justice of the supreme
court, the speaker of the house, and Sena
tor Edmunds. Of the undistinguished
persons present were members of congress,
foreign ministers, reporters, army and navy
officers, government clerks, ready made
clothes merchants and United States sena
tors. I will not attempt to tell what all the
gentlemen had on. There were too many
I observed that a taytor from Seventh street
wore hh elegant frock coat cut demi train
with extended padded and precipitous
shoulders. Pantaloons flared tt the bot
tom, and dark dollar kill gloves. Mr.
a tall, elegant beau from tho post office
department, salary $1,200 a year,
wus much admired in a short greyish habit,
cut straight in tergum, pantaloons fitting
closely over the hips and coiffure arrayed
a la Tom Allen, The judge of the police
court, a pronounced blonde, appeared in
white gloves and cravat, black swallow-tail
coat, and pantaloons to match, with bime
talic ornaments. I mention these three, not
that they were more elegantly dressed than
most members of congress and attaches of
legation, but because their costumes may be
taken as types of styles nnd furnish a guide
tothc brother of Miss Fiora McFlirasy, who
may come to Washington not quite know
ing what to wear when ho picsents himself
at the American court. While tho white
neck-tie and swallow-tail coat, with black
trowscrs, is the costume do rigeur for re
ceptions, no one will feel conspicuously out
of place in a frock coat. Some ladies were
in full dress while others appeared in street
costume with cloaks und hats on. I say
some wero m full dress, but this must not
he. understood in a bad or Canadian souse.
A lino must be drawn somewhere, and, un
less she has very pretty shoulders, ths
American lady draws it very high.
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS INSANE ASY
LUM. THE NEKDH OK THE INSTITUTION A JOINT
UIENNIAL REPORT PROM DM8. UAKNK8 AND
W AUDN Ell TO TUE 31 ST UKNEUAL ASSKK
BLT. The "Third Riennial Report" of the Su
perintendent of tho Illinois Southern Hos
pital for the Insane, contains, among other
things, tho report of the Trustees of the in
stitution, who ask for the following appro
printions: For ordinary cipcn.i, per an tin in $03,000 00
For Improvement, nnd repair, per an
num 5.OH0 (X)
For Improvement of irrnundi, vr annum l.fioooo
For nuw kitchen , J.WJO 00
Tho repairs, improvement of the grounds,
and tho new kitchen are very much needed.
The kitchen is too small for the institution,
now that tho south wing is occupied, and
new flooring is needed in tho wash room,
and in somo of the wards in the old north
wing. Next cornea the report of Dr. Ilarnc,
liito superintendent, to tho Hoard of Trus
tees, with a full account of tho improve
ments und expenditures of monies. Tha
number of patients at tho hospital Septem
ber 5th, 1878, wa4.4. Dr. Barnes con
cludes as follows:
It is well known to you, gentlemen, and
to the old board of trustees, that I have, on
numerous occassions, expressed a very de
cided desire to resign my position, but have
NEW SERIES NO 181
lreen fierstiaded by yourselvs nnd others to
remain; at least until the completion of tho
building. This 1 have done. On July 1st,
1N78, 1 tendered my resignation, to take,
effect at the earliest day possible, and it'
was accepted as soon as my successor could '
be appointed and iialitied. On tho sixth
ot August, 1878, Dr. H-jraco Wardner, of
Cairo, Illinois, was appointed to take the
place made vacant by my resignation. Dr.
Wardner leavea a large nnd lucrative prac
tice to take charge ot this hwpital, and is
man of age, education and ability, and I
have no doubt, will use every effort to raaktv
it a success. He leaves a people who re
gret to lose his valuable services, and enters
a new field for thought and reflection. 1
trust, gentlemen, that you will give him thw
lame liberal support that you havo given
mo. To him I turn over the care of tho un
fortunates in this hospital, trusting in God. .
that under the intelligent management of
my successor, many a daikened intellect
may be relighted, and that hd may be mow
successful than I have been.
To Dr. F. W. Mercer, who ha been as
sociated with me ever since tho opening of
the institution, I owe many thauks; hu edn' '
cation and experience in tno specialty em
inently qualify him for a higher field.
The other officers and employes, for
faithful service, I cheerfully recommend to
your favorable consideration.
Dr. Wardner, in his report, which follow.,
seconds the recommendateon of tho Trti-
tees for appropriations, and gives an ac
count of the new water supply at tho big .
spring. Wo annex a portion of the con
cluding part of his report:
. large percent, of the patients received ?
during the two years for which this report
is made, have been from the lower walks '
of life; a class leading somewhat irregular
though not as n rule dissipnted or intem
perate, lives. Of the whole number ud- '
nutted, seventeen men and one woman.'
Tho physical condition of the patient re
ceived was, with few exceptions, much be
low a healthy standard, and is most decided
ly bad; nnxuiia and broken health being
especially conspicuous amongst the women.
The tobacM habit in eighty-seven per cent,
of the men, and in fifteen per cent, of the
woman. During, the early part of 1877
both men and women patients were con
fined to the older part of tho building, the
north wing, which was inadequate for the
proper accommodation of both sexes; un
der such circumstances the patients were
unavoidably exposed to insalubrious sur
roundings, and the crowded conditbn at
that time added much to the unsnnitary
state; since the occupation of the new south
wing, how ever, the condition has occn good ,
and the general health of the patients pro-"
portionately improved. v
Tho inmates have had great pleosuse ia
the occupation of the south wing. Its plan
and arrangments in detail give a ho.ue like
appearance to many of the wards, contribut
ing to the contentment nnd cheerfulness
of the patients. Amusements have boon
Crovided at short intervals during summer
m winter, ana we can aiscovcrTinmisaKa-
ble benefcial results thrrefrcm.
I take great pleasure in expressing uiy
sincere thanks to Dr. F. W. Mercer, senior
assistant physician, whoso hearty co-opper-ation,
ready aid, and knowledge of details
in the working of the hospital has rendered
my introduction upon the discharge of the
responsible duties of my office comparative
ly free from embarrassment.
I desire also to extend the same sentt
meut to Dr. E. D. Converse, second assist
ant physician; Capt. J. B. Fulto.n engineer:
Chas. Olmsted, clerk, and all tho officer
and employes of the institution, for the
ready and cheerful manner in which their
several duties have been performed.
Wht will you allow a cold to ad
vance in your system and thus encourage
more serious maladies, such as Pneumonia,
Hemorrhages and Lung troubles when mi
immediate relief can so easily bo attained.
Roschee's German Syrup has gained the
largest sale in tho world for the cure of
Coughs, Colds and tho severest Lung Dis
eases. It is Dr. Roschee's famous German pro
scription, and is prepared with the greokst
care, and no fear need be cntertuined in nd
ministcring it to tho youngest child, as per
directions. Tho sale of this medicine U
unprecedented. Since Bret introduced there
has been a constant increasing demand and
without a singlo report of a failure to do its
work in any ease. Ask your druggist as to
the truth of these remarks. Large size 71
