A correspondent writing from
Washington thi describes the now
Congress. It will be seen that he
pays a sort of loft handed compliment
to the Democratic sido. IIe says:
"Tho Houso is divided so evenly
politically that for the first time in a
great many years the co:ntro aisle

Usually, from tc(e inequality of the

upon tho other's seats. But nw
the right is all Domocratic and the
