From our regulurCorR'npondent.
Washington, D. C, March 20, 1879.
This has been a week of unusual excite
ment in Washington. Political caucuses;
an exciting contest for the nomination of a
Democratic speaker; a very close race in
the speakership, in which the Democrats
showed only a majority of live over Ropul
licans and Greenbackers; the organization
of a new congress, so clo.-ie upon the heels
of the old; and the imminence of a dead
lock between the executive and legislative
branches of the government; have given
those interested in politics something to
talk alout, while those who have a pen
chant for the purient and scandulous, rind
unusual entertainment in the suit which
widow Oliver is waging against the wealthy
Ex-Senator Cameron, of Pennsylvania.
Washington is, perhaps, not different lrorn
other capitals in being a
paradise for adventuresses and ad
venturers, . which makes it, of
course, the antipode of paradise for those
upon whom the adventurous nn-v.
Not that it is meant to pre-judge Mrs. Oli
ver's course by calling her an adventuress.
Let us wait for the verdict. Nor should it
be supposed that cx-Senator Sinon Cam
eron is worse than the ninety and nine who
have escaped calumny. If all the women
with whom high otHcials, to pit it mild,
have been sentimental, were willing to put
their shoulders to the pillars, like this fe
male Sampson, they would level the social
fabric to the dust, or lower
Your readers know all about the organi
zation of the 40th congress. How tltL'ni-
tied and decoms it was in the senate, and
how rabble like and chaotic in the house.
Your correspondent went first to the re
porter's gallery of the stnate, to see the
new senators sworn in ; among them was
the handsome George II. Pendleton, of
Ohio, who went up on the arm of Senator
Thurman ; Vance, of N. C, who was con
ducted to the Vice-President's stand by his
colleague, Senator Ransom. Each new
senator was escorted by his colleague, with
the exception of Jones of Louisiana; this
most petite of senators, (I don't think he
will weigh more than 93 pound) was nut
eSCOrteU Kollogj, Knt ,y flip .og-nfi,.
Senator Coke, of Texas. Senators B ;ck and
Williams, of Kentucky, made a collosal pair,
and they will sustain Kentucky's prestige
for tall men. There was a profusion ot
flowers in both the Senate and the House.
Gen. Logan's desk was literally covered
by magnificent bcKjucts, The Senate was
soon organized and ready fur business.
I have never seen the galleries ot the
House so crowded. ' I found the reporters
gallery jammed by ladies, to Die exclusion
of many currcspondenta, who expressed,
in emphatic lnnguifo, tkeir disapproval of

intense, for it was doubtful to tho last
moment, whether tho Democrats would
have a majority of all tho truiuilMsra. Tho
new mcmlxsr who attracted most attention
from tho galleries was Gen. Joseph E.
Johnson, ho sat near the main Isle, laugh
ing, talking, nnd gesticulating, to all
nppeitrances well pleased with congress in

Ho is a small man, in long block frock
coat, grey pantaloons, with a physiognomy
much like that of General Sherman. I
saw him onco before, on the platform ot"
tho railway station at Chattanooga, looking
at a file of federal prisoners; he then
wore grey cloths and hud tbreo gilt straps
surrounded l:y a wreath on his collar."
The house is now so evenly divided that
looking from the speaker's stand, all tho
Democrat are on tho right of the islo,
while all the Republicans and Greenback
ers are on the left. As soon os the seatA
had been distributed an opportunity waa
given to see the totiteensenibl.i of the 46th
Congress us it will be. TIiord who saw it
from the gallery were of the opinion thtat it
would compare favorably with the former
congrens. The Dcmocuitic side, especially.
presents abetter genial appearance than
tho former congvess though ()mo of their
most conspicuous and ablest men as Potter,
Hewett, Durham, Glover and Southard are
gone. On the Republican side many fa
miliar faces aro missed. Tho grotesque
presence of General Rutler is no longer in
the capitol, but his admirers may gaze
upon him in tho city hall, where he con
ducts tho defence in the Oliver Camron
breach of promise case. His distinguished"
looking colleague General Ranks, has left
the capitol, perhaps- forever, and the white
head of Martin I. Townsend is no longer
conspicuous on the Republican side. Th
Democrats are a better dressed and hand
somer body of men than in the fonnf r con
gress, while the Republicans present as
array of younger faces.
ON OI.U MOST DISTANT FROHTIER, 8S in
our busiest and most populous cities of the
seaboard and interior, Hostctter's Stomach
Bitters is pre-eminently popular. Wherever
civilization plants ita foot on this continent,
thither the great tonic soon finds its way.
Nor is this surprising, for it is the medicine
of all others best adapted to the wants of
the Western emigrant, bo he minor or agri
culturist. It is an incomparable remedy
for the diseases to which he is most subject.
and which arc liable to be brought on by
change of climate, hardship, exposure, on
accustomed air and diet, and miasmatic at
mosphere and water. Among these are dis
orders of tho stomach and bowels,
rehumatic ailments, and malarious fevers,
for all of which Hostctter's Bitters is a cer
tain specific. A course of the Bitters be
fore departing for the new field of labor, or
on arriving will have the effect of prevent
