Tlio inrt icr fnrinpd by IIitciii'M. on thnt occasion could luivo been performed much moro nucccs-fully by n rabbit. In this )Miwi:vl"'rniiMMoM nffiilr, liowLer, there lire ninny elements of un usual Interest. In tho llrst place, Dkmp hkv Is acknowledged tho best mnti of his weight this country has ever produced. Ho is us nearly r-trt.i.iv VK'ts cn,uul In scienco us seems pos-lble to man; ho Is a much bitter general, for Su.mv.vn never but i nee took any pains to nurso his strength; Mid ho is game and dangerous in an ex traordinary degree, lto has met but ono defeat and that camo from tho purest r.eeident. It would bo dllllcult to Itnagino n mure formidable opponent than Di:Mr h:v of course In tho middlc-iv eight class. Hut I'wimmons appears to boa won der, too. And ho Is a wonder of such novel kind; he so sets nt naught nil Ideis nml standards In pugilism; lie. is so cu ll rely without precedent In everyway thnt ono Is at n loss for conjecture. To begin with, there never was a ptlr.0 lighter nt nil like him in any physical respect. Jlcing moro than MX feet tall, hols ."len der, nnrrovv-chcsleil and bandy-legged. lie has not tho hrond shoulders mid massive limbs which wo aro wont to as j-oclnlo with bruisers. Ho is tho grey hound not tbo bulldog.

The suburbs of Washington aro rapidly extending In all directions and becoming moro beautiful and attractive. Mr. John K. Cowax, the general counsel of tlio Hnltlnioro end Ohio l'ullroad, who is a strong ad cento of tho principles of Civil f-'crv!cc Hcfonn, points to tho improve ment!) around Washington as one of tho good results brought about by tlio nppll tatlon of the Phil-Service rule". Kin ilojcs of tho Government, ho argues, now fcelsufllcicnt security in their tenure of olllco to justify them in making homes for themselves, instead of living at board ing houses in the city. These people, aro naturally attracted to tho suburbs, or tun Lrycnd, where railroads give easy iicccss, by the cheapness of property and i!ij cfcnjie from liuudreds of small e.x ) ruses altendlng family life !n a largo lily. Wo have no iluubt that Mr. Cowan is n.tlrely correct in his estimate of tho situ ittltin. And wo may add other reasons why so many licrsonsaro seeking homes in tho country. It avoids tho necessity for going to stunnier resorts and tlio scpa ittion of a man from his family during Ihu heated term. Washington has pecu liar iMlvuiitnges in this regard. Whilst it is situated on tidewater, tlicro Is a splendid rcimtry lying around it, freo from all intlemlc diseases and with beautiful M'cnrry. Tho development of this flno toiintiy is tlio work of tho energetic and fnr-slghtcd real estate ocrr.tor3 of Wash-lii'-trn.

Tho writer of this letter says thnt the Army Is hampered In Its work by Washington orders nnd Inter ference nnd Hint General Miles, though on tho ground nnd Informed regarding the actual state of affairs. Is being di ncted lit his work by tho President. This may hu nil right from tho scntlmenta slnndiKilnl, but tho olllccrs and soldiers who are facing tho rigors of tho winter on (he plains, nud tho treacherous foo with , wiioiii they havo to deal,nt one nud tho , same lime, would llko to see n different I slate of things. I On New Year's Day, In n fearful bllz I rard, n cavalry detachment had a sovero ! light In which a number of Indians wero killed nnd a lot si ponies were captured. Tho troops wero In their saddles all day. Many of tlio men had their faces much cut and gashed with sleet, nnd other, with their horses, wcro Injured by falls Into holes which the snow hid from sight. For forty-eight hours the men had not tlmo to eat, and wcro without water. Their sufferings were intense, while tho iiiuinus wero iigiiung in comparative comfoit, chid In skins, nnd retiring when tired to their holes, which wero protected nnd comfortable, and Inaqcesslblo to horsemen. Many of tho olllccrs and sol diers aro choked up with colds and enughs, and all have moro or less frost biles to look after. General Miles has orders from tho Pres ident to settle tho troublo without blood shed, and the soldiers nrekeptfrom bring ing on a light when they nro best prepared todoeffectlvo work. "Ono thing is certain," says tho writer, "General Miles Is not nu.xious to stav In the Held under tho circumstances, and ho will bring on a light If unconditional sur render is not made, and when tlio battle occurs It will be fought with fury by tho weary nnd exasperated troops, who aro living in touts and without tho necessities of lilc. and are though ill tho field, nnd ostensibly tlicro to fight I ho savages com pelled to remain inactive and on tho de fensive, when n prompt and decisive bat tle would settlo tho trouble. One ciiinot bo among the olllccrs uud soldiers now In Dakota in the field without hearing out s) okeu condemnation of tlio iollcy of piace when there Is no pence, or even safety, except in eternal vigilance. His all veiy well to call tho Indians tho wards of the nation, but the fact remains that they nro wild savages, mid nro not ani mated by any other motives than those (hat characterize, savages who aro bent on bl(. dshed. "The futo of Casey vvnul 1 bo tho fato of every officer herq If tho redskins cat a llko chance.

Thcro will bo no more murders like Casey's, or butcheries llko Wallace's; nt t n soldier here will forget the fato of these two officers, nud If they light It will bo with n stern determination to show tlio nlllcialsat Washington that they iindcr itaud tho Indian nature and are best fitted to deal with Indians."

Do Democratic Senators imagino that the people of this country approve their studied and insolent vvnsto of time? They profess great anxiety for freedom of de bate. They beg the country to regard them os devoteelly patriotic gentlemen, who want the peoplo to know all about measures pending, and therefore stand heroically for maintenance of tho rules which mako it ImiKwslblo to restrict dis cussion. Yet w hat docs tho country act ually see? It sees a Democratic Senator pretending tn discuss the Silver bill, with out any Senator to listen to him, engaged In reading old speeches from files of tho C'ctifrcMtonai Globe, occupying tlio whole lay in that way. and going tothonute rooms when ho Is tired fornecded rest and refreshment, leaving another Democratic Senator to continuo tho reading of old speeches as part of his speech. There Is not tho faintest pretence of dis cussion In this ncrfornianco or in tin v part of Democratic performances of lato. Tho palpablo object is to kill time. Pub licly, honorable Senators pretend that It would bo n dreadful wrong to limit their irppoituhlt) to set before the Sciiuto and the country tho meaning or measures pending. Hut In prlvato they avow their intention to use uptho session, so that tho majority shall not bo ublo to pass import ant measures. Clergymen In Politics. Fnm the 1'hllaJtlnMa iAilatr, Tho extremo partisan organs of cither of tho great political parties havo found nothing to commend and much to con demn In tho public meeting held tlio other night In New York by 12o clergymen, who represented all denominations, nnd who met to consider suggestions for the better government of that very badly governed city. As a rulo tho partisan Journals havo denounced tho apiiearanco of clergymen In politics ns Improper, becnuso out of keeping with tho dignity and uicrcdnass of their ofllce. This Is an exceedingly old form of arraignment, but its untitpiity scarcely warrants its continued uso. mere 13 nooiiicr ciassoi citizens mat, should be so inllueuthil in moulding pub lie sentiment aright as that of thu clergy, and tho Impropriety of its members using their Influence in support of good mu nicipal government is not clearly estab lished by sneering nllu-lons to "Parsons in Polities." If thcro Is 0110 thing which tho politics of to-day needs much more tiinn anotner 11 is mat, citizens 01 me highest position, the greatest Inlluonco and tho most unquestionable, integrity of pur poso shall tako not only a passive interest, but 1111 active part in it. There is nothing unseemly, much less Improper, In a large and truly representa tive body of clergymen meeting together with their fellow-citizens to discuss means for wresting thu government of the city In which they live and labor from tlio mis rule of corrupt and incompetent men. Had govoriuncnt In a populous municipal ity curries alter it n long train ot practical evils, nnd not only physical, but moral ones, iv hlch latter It would scctn tn bo the especial duty of clergymen to look nfter, and, if possible, abate. The clcrgvjnen of greatest mofuiuoss, of whom Cardinal Manning and Cation i.iititon wero nomo modern examples, havo been thoso who havo lived and wrought closest o the people; who have, vvliuu occasion made it lit for them Ui do so, como out of thu pulpit nud talked to and held counrcl with tha pcoplo faco to face. Good government In a great city menus not only the physical safety and care of the people, but tho abatement of mose moral pes-, piuccs wiiicu mint ue gindo human life. Tlio clergymen who met in Now York the oilier night were of all parties, but they represented none In their appeals for Improved government. Such an appeal they hud u 1 ight to make, not only us leaders of tho people, but lis eitlrens, Tho bad government which In jures tlieni pcrsonnlly ns members of tho it niiutinlty they havo 1111 uuiptestlnuablu light to protest against; and, us a general principle, until politics Is much changed 111.111 its present Mutt1, the appearance of clergymen at public lueetlngs appealing to their fellow-clllens to unite In support of good nnd cotii'ieteiit men for public olllco Is to bo commended rather than icndcmucsl.

"Miall tho Presbyterian Church hnvo tlcnconcsscs?" Is a question referred by tho General Assembly to tho Presbyteries. Tho New York Presbytery referred It to n committee, and yesterday It discussed two reports n majority report, which said "No," and n minority report, which said "Yes." The majority report says that there Is no Scriptural authority for deaconesses. Thollcv. Dr. I.ninpo declared that there was precisely ns much authority for elect ing bishops as deaconesses. Tho order of deaconesses In tho early Church owed Its origin to tho converts from heathenism, who had been used to sho gotls and priesl esses. If women could bo deacon esses they could, logically, bo elders and ministers. Celibacy, with lis attendant evils, became thu rulo of tho sisterhoods into which tho deaconesses of tho early Church wero merged, and such sister hoods were likely to follow their revival. "A sisterhood of tho grand old Presby terian Clinch, which 111 times past has borne testimony ngiilnst tlio nousenso ami wickedness of Romanism and In favor ot tho sanctity of marriage!" exclaimed Dr. i.nnipe ai mis pouu Ihu minority rcnort ocrecd with tho majority that there was no Scriptural authority for tho institution of deacon esses, but wanted the older instituted all the samo as n recognition of Hie religious work now done by women. Tlio Itcv. Dr. liall laid stress on tho abandonment of tho order of deaconesses because of tho abuses which resulted from It In both tho Greek and Homaii Church. Tho Hev. Dr. ltamsny siokn in favor of tho minority rciwrt, and tho Hev. Dr. McGevalu said that a Congregational clergyman of Hrooklyn had told htm that each of his deaconesses was equal to nlno dencons. Tho tlcbato will bo continued nt tho next meeting. Neirlcctrtl lluslnrss. 7om the Cincinnati Gautlt. Tho Hepubllcans In Congress nro not working ns If they appreciated tho fact that only forty-four working days remain before they go out of power In Congress. Yet this is their leaso on life; and tho lieriotl when they will return to full jiowcris veiled in a dim future. It Is true that after the -1th of March they will retain tho Senate, but, with the overwhelming majority against them In tho House, they will bo utterly unable to accomplish any legislation Which Is dis tinctly Republican for somo years to como. Tho class of measures here re ferred to as Hcpubllcan nro not wholly Iiartisan, but include all of the broad National legislation to which tho Republi can party has always turned its efforts, and which tint Democracy has cither treated with Indiffcrcnco or opposed. It is tho boast of H1030 about coming Into partial power, and who aro uniting for a despcrato struggle for full possession of the Government, thatthclr mission will bo to overthrow much that Republicans havo accomplished. There remains n great niassof unfinished business before tho present Congress. It would bo most becoming In tho party In power If it would devote tho fow days of Its leaso on legislative power to encrgetio and persistent work. Tho dally sessions should begin earlier. There Should so in lie night sessions. And most of tho ro illy meritorious measures on tho calendars should bo forced through. Thcro Is no further hope for partisan legislation of any consequence. The treachery of a few Republicans has mado It imposslblo for tho party to re deem Its pledges and toglvo tho country a law that would cnablo every citizen to voto nud havo his ballot counted. Tha failure must rest 011 tho heads of thoio Senators who joined hands with tho Dem ocrats and mado it posslblo for the jo to prevent this Important legislation. As matters look from the outsido it will bo useless to mako further attempts to pass tho election bill. Tho effort must fall, and tho attempt will only result ju defeat ing much important unfinished work. This latter should bo in largo part com pleted. It will not bo to tho credit of tlio party if the closing hour of tho session finds hundreds upon hundreds of per fected measures yet on tho calendar. Thrifty rather Ignntlus. From the A'cio York Sur Thcro Is no reason for wonder at tho failure of Father Ignatius to stir up a re ligious llnmo In this city. To many who havo read tho reports of his sermons, und who havo seen that every reporter has testified to his clotiucnco and fervor, it might seem incomprehensible that ho should not havo mado at least such an im pression upon the public as Mr, Moody succeeded In making a few years ago. A contributor to tlio l'rcti explains tho failure. Ho says that a gentleman who had been to tho meetings complained that he was shocked by the bartering and beg ging that attended tho service "I was asked to buy a scat, a hymn book, an au tograph and other things. Then I was asked to contribtitotn pay for tho hall and for Llanthony Abbey, Ho wondered "If ho would bo allowed to get ont with the shirt on his back." This indicates that tho cash sldo of tho mission lias been mado iipnnicnt above tho religious side; audit has failed In con sequence. A Xcw Hanking House.

Last night, just before 8 o'clock, nn alarm of fire was sent from box No. 157, which Is very generally known to be lo cated nt Ilio Whlto House. Tho rumor that tho President's house was on lire spread rapidly and attracted a largo crowd. Soon after tho alarm had been sounds 1 It wns ascertained that there was no lire. Thero seems tn bo considerable of n mystery as to where the nlarm originated, inasmuch ns thero was no lire nt tho White Houso at nil. It wns 11 1 firstthought that tho nlarm was caused by tno clectrla wires being crossed, but upon Investiga tion lids was found not to bo the case. They wero just preparing for n Diplomatic reception al Die 1'xcciitlve Mansion, nnd there was consequently mora excitement, than on ordinary occasions. An electrician was on hand to assist In thu Investigation, mid ho thought that tho alarm must havo resulted from nu acci dental crossing of the electric wire 011 tho roof of tho mansion, Considerable ex citement prevailed In the Presidential dressing npartments until tho situation was fully explained nnd assurance! given that thero wcro no Indications of lire In nny part of tho building. The lire de partment retired and preparations for tlio reception wcro resumed. It is fortunate tho accident did not occur nn hour later, when the mansion was crowded with tho participants In tho reception, othcrwho a panic might have been the result. DISTRICT CASKS.
