OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
HOW LEST IS OBSERVED IN WASHINGTON
r.ELIUJCN AS A FINE AUT "KIIOM CKaVE
From our Rf polar Ccrri-roi.deLt.
Washington, D. C, March 2nd, 1SS0.
Although we are in the midst of Ltnt
there seems to be only a pretended suspen
sion of gnyety. There is of courss a strict
er observance of the forms of religion.
The orthodox young lady will lei.ve lier
bed at 7 o'clock in the morning after hav
ing crept into it three hours previously, dead
tired with a ball, and after a hurried toilet,
will go out in the chill damp air, that she
may be present at morning service. Iu the
fashionable West End, the milkman going
tils early rounds is sure to encounter a suc
cession of the fashionable nymphs
performing the oi! "rim ace to
the alter on foot, and car
rying two or three devotional books in
her hands. Husbands and lovers are snor
ing between the sheets while the is on her
kr.ees in the dim religious light of a church.
The act is one of penance, and she is pro
foundly convinced of its efficacy. The per
severance with which this custom is observ
ed suggests considerations on which the
moralist might have a good deal to sjv.
She atheists, who have years an 1 ugliness
on their side, mv. scotTto their heart's con
tent, but if Sappho would keep herself un
trotted from the world, the must be con-U-Lt
with proclaiming her skepticism in
her rhymes, and observe her Lent most un
scrupulously. Tiii truth his been t-'.-nsi-t-ttly acted
upon at ail ages of the church: and the six
penitential weeks that we are now In the
midst of are celebrated in manv polite
circle with a show of devotion
which proves conclusively how
well religion as a tine uit is understooJ :.t
the prer.'nt day.
Entertainments and supper parties, at
which Lucullus or Apicius miu'ht l.uve as
fisted luxurious entertainments of all kinds
are of nightly occurrence. Another M.
D'jpin might arise to write n fiesh cs.-ny
upon the "luxe etfrene des feinmcs," and it
would no longer be in P.nis, but in Wash
ington, that his stinging sermon would
Lave to be preached to unheeding ears.
Many of the fashionable and dazzling
beauties of Washington represent in each
case un expenditure upon their toilets of
thousands of dollars, "as they stand up in
a ball room," while, simultaneously, the
thops of Sir. Gait and of Mr. Semken, the
thief jewlers of the capital, are crowded by
eager purchasers of diamonds, emeralds,
nnd sapphires. Fortunes, lightly accumu
lated, are nowhere spent more lightly than
in the United States; and the hum
of prosperity, which began to make itself
distinctly heard once more in October last,
has led, naturally, to that "entcitainnicnt
boom'' which at this moment occupies
Washington to the exclusion of unwelcome
thoughts about the) many toilers, both
white and black, who. throughout the
length and breadth 'if the great republic,
but in a iar more literal sense, are in the
tad condition eif Miss Flora McFlimsy,
who "had nothing to wear." To sad and
eober minds the thought might occasion
ally occur that as Aristotle prophesied
more than tweuty centuries ago, democra
cies have an irresistible tendency to merge
in plutocracies, and that the existence of
opulent families iu Republican states leads
naturally, in tt few generations, to n crav
ir.g for nionnrehial institutions, with their
ennobling titles, their aristocratic distinc
tions, and, us Thomas Jefferson phrased it,
with the tinsel and glitter of the effete old
In North Carolina the moonshiners do
not generally have seriously difficulty m
finding time to get married, but ft case is
reported this morning showing that the
revenue laid now in progress has compell
ed one couple, at least, to wed and run. A
parson was conducted to a mountain retreat
and, finding the lovers in waiting, tied the
knot, received fjO in gold and a hurrah,
and in ten minutes was on his way home,
the moonshiner, his bride, and their com
panions resuming their tour, while the
deputy collectors iu hot pursuit.
Boxes to the value of 3.C16.000 were
purchased on sinking fund account at the
sub-treasury, yesterday. The amount of
fered was $13,12O,C00, and s. me disap
pointment was manifested at the smailness
of the acceptance. As customs continue
very heavy, it is predicted that the treasury
must largely increase its bond purchase?,
or the money market will inevitably be
come stringent before the month closes.
Secretary Sciivitz seems at last to have I
led the White Utes into terms with the gov- I
eminent, by which they arc to surrender'
their present reservation and go into Utah
territory. This arrangement mr.y have
been anticipated several weeks &g", when
Gen. Murray, of the "blue grass," was
made governor of the Mormon domain.
The yourg governor may now have a chance I
to eVmcnstrate his utility.
A French newspaper, in discussing the
probable results of the coming presidential
campaign 'in the United States, expresses
confluence in the election cf Gen. Giant,
and predicts "'that his success will effect a
profound transformation in the electoral
habits of the American republic, f.nd lead
to many modifications in its internal as
well as external policy."

But the victory is with Parnell. Never
does a man appear more nobler than "when
facing fearful odds" for a great cause, and
from the pressure of pettifogging deceit
nnd tho coils of chicanery he rises su
perior to the perils which surround him, de
fying and defeating the adversaries who
had plotted his overthrow. With a calm
ness ami consistency almost marvelous in
tho circumstances, "the Irish agitator,"
sinro his arrival hi America, hath borne
himself to the admiration of his friends
and to the discomfiture of the plotters
ngainst his peace and policy.
