Tbo Wnihlneton correspondent ol tho New York Herald oayj that tho President, on the occasion of his re cent first visit to Mount Vernon, quite captured tho affections of tho officers and crow of tho W. W. Corcoran, the only vessel which has a right to land at Mount Vernon, Tho engineer Is now the happy recipient of a beauti fully written and ciprestcd autograph letter from tho President acknowledg ing, with thanks, tho receipt of an oaken goblet sent him as a present by the engineer of the Corcoran, This goblet Is made of oak from a big tree at Mount Vernon, and also has a pleco of the original houso there and of tho old Pohlck Church, near by, Inlaid In It, It Is bound with silver which Is part of some onco used by Chief Jus tice Marshal and his family. Captain t. L. Blake, who commands tho Cor coran, although he has always boasted that he has never been married, nover been to a wedding and nover voted, now thinks If ho had a legal place of residence outside tho District ot Colum bia ho would bo glad to voto for Clove ' land for President next year, as he thinks him too good a President to be set asldo with only ono term. j. The Supremo Court room, says a letter In the Now York Sun, has mourning abovo tho doors, and the chair of the lato Justlco Woods Is draped with black, Tho carpet and cushioned scats give a darkened tone to tho room, though tho walls are a grayish tint. Marble busts of six Chief Justices aro sot against tho walla on marblo brackets. They form a row, but aro not placed, as ono would sup pose, In tbo order of holding the office. When the court Is In session, there Is but one picturesque figure belonging to the room. Of course, one docs not re fer to the bench, The judges, In their f owned dignity, may be quite Impos D, sometimes are so. uut tho pic turesque centrcB In tho court page, a blind lad of 14, with long, fair, curling hair. Ills position Is usually at the elbow of the Chief Justice,-and ladles say tbe court page should have a cos tume of black velvet and point lace, after the fashion of King Charles' court. But this would hardly please the "Jcffersonlan simplicity" of tho Dem ocratic members of tbo bench. How ever, as It Is, without velvet and lace, tbo court pago seems to havo a pretty good time of It. Tho court doorkeeper is a dignified black man, who has grown gray at his post. Nobody knows how many years be has been there. It Is doubtlul If ho himself could say just how many terms ho has sat through, pulling the cord that Opens tho green baize doors for visitors. His solemn face and speechless manner give a sulll clent hint to keep silenco, and tho vis itor who cntcrB tho Supremo Court rnrnn Is expected to leave his talk out side. A queer story Is told a New York Bun reporter by a well-known society man. He said: "A lady, who had grown tired ot the setting of her dia mond ring, called at Tiffany's last week, and described tho sotting she would like. The attendant casually examined tbo ring, and greatly aston ished tho lady when he remarked: 'Madam, this Is not a diamond; It's glnis.' Tho lady replied that It couldn't bo posslblo; tho ring was her engage ment ring, and added: 'My earrings wero given mo at tho same tlrao by my husband. The attendant asked her to permit him to examine the ear rings, and these also wero discovered to uo glass of very lino quality. Tho lady told the young man that tho ring and tbo car-rings were bought at Tiffany's, and tho books proved that she was cor rect, and that tbo young man whoso wife she was on tbe day he gave them to bcr had paid a good price for them. The mystery deepened, but all that tbo clerk could say was that tbo diamonds bad been out of Tiffany's place for n number of vears. Tho ladr returned to oer home. Sho then recalled that sho had dismissed her butler several weeks ha. fore, and questioning tho servants about him sho learned that ho had fre quently mentioned that he was a jew eler In Franco or Germany, Tholady concluded that bo had removed her diamonds, and Inspector Byrnes Is looking for that jeweler butler," II. W. lllploy of Portland, Mo who has passed forty nlno summers In tbo White Mountains, tells a story about Henry Ward Bcccbcr. Mr. Beccher onco drovo a passcnucr wagon from tho Twin to tbo Ci awf ord j list for fun. In turning around bis team became tangled up and bis wagon bid fair to tip, when a Portland and Ogdensburg conductor, looking out of a chamber window of the hotel, shouted:" Let go your leaders, you old fool 1" "That's good advice, young man," was Mr. IJeccher'a calm reply, as he followed It. Boys a Washington letter to tho Now York Tribune: Great lliltsln, Germany, Japan and Mexico now own Legation bouses In Washington. Tbo British Legation was built In Sir Edward Thornton's lime as Minister. It Is not so long ago, a dozen years, per haps, but Ibo bouse seemed In tho country then and qulto out of tho city. Its nearest nilghbor was "Stewart Cattle," a lllllo further out and more hopilus1y surrouuiled by wastes of inatib Inod, from which roso the con Hunt croaking of frogs and the nover- falling vapors ot malaria. It Is not an exaggeration to say that tho city's growth In that direction has been some thing marvelous. Tho British Min ister goes to England next month, and will Ihcre Join bis daughters, who left hero three weeks ago. The Misses West will spend tho greater ptrt of tho summer In France, and aro not to bo In London for much of tho Jubllco cele bration, which Americans going over this year would not "miss for any thing." Tbo family return to this country In September. Tho visit of Sir Lionel West Is his first return to England bIdco ho camo to Washington nearly six years ago. Several voca tions havo becu spent In Canada, but It may bo said of htm that be has not been out of America. .". Says tho Washington correspondent of tho Cincinnati Timet Slur: I sco a paragraph going tho rounds about a blind boy in Brooklyn who has become an expert on the type writer. lie Is not tho only case. Not long ago I had oc casion to call upon Professor Blschoff, tbo distinguished blind organist and composer, who makes Washington his home, and found In his office a typo writer which gavo ovldenco of frequent use. In answer to a question from mo about It ho replied that It was his and that ho used It himself. "I havo no trouble, whatever," ho said, "In writ ing my lcttcra upon It. It Is quite an easy thing to do, and It gives me great pleasuro to wrlto my own letters."' IIo Is a wonderful man, Blind from his childhood, ho has made himself ono ot tbo finest organists In tbo country, a composer of raro and valuable music and a teacher of music and organ and piano. IIo Is constantly full ot work teaching his pupils, and has all tho business that ho can possibly attend to. IIo makes Erobably $5,000 or moro a year out of Is musical work. IIo manages his own affairs, and ho docs not rely on anybody for asslstanco In getting about tho streets with which ho fs familiar. AT UOWAIW VMTEBSIT1'.

Sudden and Tragic Death of II, A, Schlmraelfenulns Herman A. ticblmmelfenolng, a clerk In the Western Division of the Pension Ofllee, shot and killed himself under rather strange circumstances about 10.S0 o'clock last night, Tbo tragedy occurred In tbe "Livingstone," 1007 Thirteenth street, where Schlmmelfen nlng had called on Miss Marguerite D. Miller, who Is also a clerk In the same of fice. Tbe Inmates of the house stated that the shooting was accidental. They stated that tbe deceased waa about to leave the house to go to bis home, 1000 N street, when the )ouog lady noticed a pistol pro ttudlng from bis overcoat pocket. She called bis attention to It and be took It out, easing It was not loaded, and, putting It to bis mouth, pulled the trigger. There was a report and he (oil bleeding on the floor, Drs. J, Ford Thompson and Lacblan Tyler wero called In, but tbe young man died at 1:30 a. ni,t never having uttered a word after being shot. His mother and sister were sent for and they were overcome by grief at tbe sad news. They stated that be was In cheerful spirits when he left home. Tbe police have an Idea that tbe shooting was done deliberately. Mr, tichlmmelfen nig was 27 years old and graduated from me mini uisuict urammur ccuooi, laugut by Mr. C, E. Hilton, before golog to col lege. Ho was quite a student, and those who knew him eay it was very unlike blm to handle firearms in so reckless a manner, A CiiiTic renorter has known Mr. ticbtm- melfcnulug for man; years, and held a long convertttiiou wrni uiw at vamp nubuiuijiuu yesterday, He was then In the very best ot epttlts, and laid he Intended to leave Wash ington tbla summer and go West, where be considered the cbaucea ot busluess success greater than they possibly could be here, Mr. Scblmmelfenulug bad an exceedingly bright and active mind. Ho waa a floe llu- fuiit, and aounman of unusual Intel ectual promise. His mother aud sister state that theio could have been no posslblo reason for the shooting. He had everythlo to live for, and bad no butt(.es or other troublo to cause despondency. Ills tuncral will occur on Monday from his late resi dence, WOO K street.

Ono of the Heat Orators tinil 1) rarest Soldiers of the Old liuuilnlun. Tho lato ex OuTcrnor William Smith ol Virginia gavo mo tho first commis sion I held In tho Con federate Army, anil, as ho wns ray friend, becauso of his friendship for my father, I know blm well, and could I but recall all tho anecdotes I havo heard of his wit, hu mor and pluck, tho talo would havo to bo told In a book, But thcro aro a fow matters that I remember well. It must havo been somewhero In tho 'CO'a when I heard my father say that "Extra Billy" Smith had spoken In tho IIouso of ItcprcscntatlTcs continuously for three days, and, In his speech, had read tho lilljlo from Genesis to ltova latlons. It was a contest which resulted In tho election of N. I'. Banks as Speaker of tho IIouso, and It was Banks for whom tho Governor had spoken. When a member of tho House, Governor Smith was almost always scm with an unllghtcd cigar In his mouth, and, on several occasions, bo was called to order by tho Speaker for It, hut "Extra Billy'' always camo up smiling tbo next day with bis Inevi table cigar. Ho claimed that bo was not out of order unless his cigar was lighted, and his point was finally sus tained by tho House. I was a big boy and an ardent polltl clan In those days, though not quite ten years old. I recollect that In tho cam paign of 1850 thcro was a barbecuo at Fairfax Station, on tho lino of tho Alexandria and Qordonsylllo Railroad, and there was a vast gathering of tho people of that vicinity. For lack of funds a band of music had not been provided, but tho "Coon-killer" of Alexandria, a small two-pounder can non, had been hired to Arc a salute at stated Intervals. Extra-Billy was ono of tho speakers, and after talking awblle upon tho Is sues of the day and cettlng very thirsty, ho asked for a drink. Ono of tho directors of tho mectlnc annroached blm with a mug containing a nico mint juiep; uui aa soon as too tempting con coction approached his noso and no In haled Its fragrance, ho raised his hand, and waving It dramatically over tho assembly, said: "No, gentlemen, noth Ing hut tho puro bubbling spring." That brought down tho crowd In sym pathy. Whllo this pathetic climax was at Its height, somo mlschlovous fellow let off tho "coon killer," and tho spongo staff having been left In tho gun, It knocked down ono-half of tho speaker's Btand and astonished and frightened the assemblage nearly out of Its senses, but "Extra Billy," without moving a muscle or stopping In his remarks, said: "And so, gentlemen, wo will knock down tho Whig party." I havo thought slnco that it was tho most con summate exhibition of coolness In an emergency I ever witnessed. Tho neit time I saw Governor Smith was at a political meeting at Fairfax Court-Houso, Just beforo tho war. Ho had a peculiarity of sputtering and spitting -when bo got oxclted In his Bpecch, and as I was situated with my father Immediately below him, I was more concerned In keeping off tho frothy expectoration from his lips than In listening to his Impassioned argu ments, which I only partly understood. In tho first real skirmish of tho war, at Fairfax Court-Houso, I saw blm, under difficulties and dangers that would bava appalled the most thor oughbred military man, In conjunction with Colonel Ewell, rally a disorgan ized mass of cavolry and infantry in tho mlddlo of tho night and hold them fast to a victory. That was Tompkins' At tho battle of tho Seven Fines tho officers who wero mounted were ordered to proceed on foot. Colonel Smith said to his mcn-thoFortv ninth Va. In fantry: "You boys can purBuo them, hut my limbs aro too old. If tho ras cals can kill mo I will not dlo before my appointed time." In that batllo ono of his favorite sons, Austin, who bad lust como out of a northern prison was killed, but In splto ot his consplcu ousnees In tbo fight, tho old war-horso did notreclcvo a wound, no was se verely wounded however, at tho battlo otAntlctam, and was retired. Later still, ho was elected by tho unanimous suffrsgo of tbo troops In tho field as Governor of Virginia. When homo off tho field otAntlctam Parson Granhcrry approached tho litter and said: "Gen eral, tho surgeon tells mo your days aro numbered. Let mo pray with you." The undaunted soldier replied, "Never mind me. Fray as bard as you want that Iltll will como up In time. That's more sensible. I'll outlive you all yet." And so be did, as far as tho majority of the men about blm were concerned. When tho final collapse came Gov ernor Smith attempted to reach his homo In Warrcnton, Va , after he had been cut off from his desire to go fur ther South toward Lynchburg. He came North on horseback, forded rivers, swam through floods, encoun tered morasses, and so on, until he camo to tbo railroad bridge that had formerly spanned tho Rappahannock. It was an ugly affair at that time, being but tho mere skeleton ot a -bridge, with Its planks and hoards and railways all torn off and sagged down stream at least 20 degrees from tho horizontal lino of tho rushing stream 80 feet below. Two cav alry men had placed a narrow footway of a couplo of planks across tbe stringers anu nau passed over satciy at tno risK of their lives. It was dangerous for men to walk over to say nothing of horses, but tho Governor, soma days afterwards, with his characteristic Im petuosity, In despite of his old ago, at tempted tho passage. When nearlng tho end of tho frail structuro his borso fell through, and as If by a miracle, Governor bmlth was rescued from tho swift waters by his companions com paratively uninjured. Tho war being ended tho Governor devoted himself to various reform questions, principally to tho causo of temperance, until at an ago far beyond tbe Biblical three score and ten hu wa3 gathered to his fathers.
