OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 1884.
No one can longer doubt that
this city is fit to be the capitol of a
great, ,country. The comprehen
sive plan on which it was laid out
in the early years of the struggling
republic, gives one a fresh respect
for those far-sighted fathers who
could even then devise a scheme
which should to-day fit the necessi
ties of the seat of' government for
fift5 millions of people, and be ca
pable of equal development with
the progress of the nation hereaf
ter. The broad avenue are a con
stant source of delight, the parks
and squares are ample for the needs
of a large city, and the great sys
tem of improvements, carried
through under the Sheperd regi
me, laid the basis for the transfor
mation of Washington from a
straggling and neglected town to a
handsome metropilis. Nothing goes
farther to justify the choice ofthis
locality as the capital than its cli
mate. Though it suffers from the
Summer heats, its temperature
during by far the larger part of
the year is most comfortable, and
the change from the inclement
weather, which prevails over the
greater portion of the country
through the, winter months to the
usual balmy air of the capital is
especially grateful. Indeed, as a
winter residence, Wasbington pos
sesses greater charms than any
other city on the continent, what
with its mild weather, its except
ional social advantages and the at
tractions which the meeting of
Congress presents to any one inter
ested in studying our system of
go vermnent at its fountain-head.
Every year the capitol is becom-.
ing more and more the winter
headl-quarters for people of leisure,
for persons of literary taste, for
studlents of politics, for devotees of'
fashion, and a compl1osite society is
gradulally growing up in which ev
erybody is sure to findl congenial
el 1em ents.
The Potomac river regatta was
rowed under peculiar disadvanta
ges yesterday. Recent rains had
caused a small freshet in the river,
the wind for a time bles. .lmost a
gale, and two of the races were
r'owed in a driving rain. The
strong current gave the crew8
drawing the Virginia side of the
river a slight advantage. In the
second race the Potomnacs had the
Virginia side, Elizabeths the mnid
(die and Columbia the Maryland
sidle. Befbrue the start the Colum
bias were the favorites against the
fieldl. In the fourth race the Nor
folks c-ew had a ,.hance .. in

not to give up, but he could go no
farther. le was played out. The
Pennsylyanians then nearly lost
the i ace to the Columbia, but fore
ed the latter into a lot of pleasurv
boats and won. The Columbias
could not complain. as they were
out of their water. The eight oar
ed race between the Potomac and
Columbia was the best contested of
the day. It was one continuous
Spurt from start to finish. and up
to the mile stake was anybody'sI
