Tliu bill Introduced hi tliu Houso by 3lr, Howell of Illinois, on tlio ISOili or Innuary, "to ilcnil the Mrcols ami n unties of "Washington," Is u mciisitra wilhllio gcnciiil pr!nriilos of which wolienitlly concur, mid lis dclulls nrc understood to Imvc liccn drawn not wily wllh a view to tho most olTcctivc oxeetillon of tlio Improvcmont pro posed, lint with enraful regard to nil ilic intercuts involved. Tito object or tho bill In, In bilof, to lnlng tho outlying tracts and subdl ItIoiiH of tho District, north of tho Jioundnry, Into conformity with tho existing plans of tho city of "Wiwhlng ington, so far ns the connecting thoroughfares of travel and trunsvorso Micets nro concerned. At present tliero Is a snd lack of uniformity In this respect. Kach of thovnilotis subdivisions has a set of streets of its own, wholly at vnrlnuco with thoso of tho city, and running in their own irregular directions, thus marring tho symmetry of design origi nally contemplated in tho laying out of tho National Capital and constituting one of ls most pleasing and notablo features, besides lessoning to n great extent tho conveniences of communi cation between tho city and Its sub urbs. It Is proposed by the bill In question to reconstruct the Btrccts and avenues f that portion of tho District men tioned, so that they shall form one harmonious system in conjunction with tho, city proper, Instead of an awkward i-imtrnst and often actual obstruction. The uniform growth and extension of tlio city should have been provided for in tho first instance, upon tho assump tion that tho Capital, instead of being si part, t'ompilscs all of tliu District or County j but it is not too lato for tho adoption of such a. systematic policy now,, and the sooner it is undertaken tho better". Tlio bill proposes that tho work shall be dono'liy n commission of throe per sons, to bo njipoinlod by tlio President, and in accordance with plats or maps picpaiedby the District Commissioners, bhowing tho course of the streets to bo extended, tho new lines of subdivision mid tho location of property, improved or otherwise, that will require to bo londcmncd for the purpose indicated. J-Qitl duties and powers of the cominis Mon aro minutely prescribed, and they nre authorized to draw upon tho Treas ury for such moneys as may bo needed to pay for lands and Improvements condemned, "said appropriations to bo continuous and to bo chargeablo In a K'paratc account to tho District of Col umbia, with interest at 3 per cent, until repaid." It is then provided that half of the sums expended shall becomo a lien on tho revenues to bo paid Into the Treasury In twenty-iivo annual in stallments and the other half bo as sessed "upon tho property abutting upon the streets and avenues extended and benefited thereby" and collecta ble! as other taxes, in llvo annual Install ments, Pome measure of this kind Is greatly needed and will ultimately have to bo parsed. As already suggested, tho (oner tho necessary legislation itf had, tin more easily and inexpensively may Its objects bo carried out. Tub New Jeimcy Assembly Jias paM-t'd Its local option, high license bill over Governor Green's voto by a vola of 31 to 21, mid tho Senate will proceed to operate on It next Jiondayf Tljo Governor seems to think tho meas ure unconstitutional, but tho Itcpubll can members of tho Legislature look upon It as tho best kind of politic-. Tjikiik is a lull in politics just now, :uid, the first thing wo know Congress will do something. - The Ciutic would llko to onlargo lis corps of local correspondents. Communications on any live topic will be gjalefully lccoived, provided thoy nro brief and concise, and mako no refcrenco to tho "valuable columns of our widely circulated Journal." "What wc want is news and newsy comment. That our columns nro valuable and our journal widely circulated wo know already. You can't hcitATCii a Republican politician without finding a bluu-co.it under tho surface, and ho Is always ready to stick n Government dollar In lis pocket. Republican politicians aru more ufrnld of bluo-coats now tli.m tho Graybacks were In wnr times. Coai, may oo UP liken rocket, but thcie tho ruMMiiulanco ends. It Is In no bort of a hurry to como down. A sensible AUTICI.E appeared in a Kiont Ibbuo of tho Army anil Navy Megister, calling attention to tlio im portance of thoroughly-trained men for tho crows of the armored ships, now in course of construction. It is full of vnluablo BUgcestlons to young men about to enlist as apprentices. The naval service ia destined to occupy it very high position, and all who pro pose identifying themselves with it LiptjJJJipyO ptUvfVUgb apprcclatfwiof its dignity and usefulness as a pro fesion. The inherent genius Of our country for Inventing nnrlikoappll nnres will render the navy of tho fu ture far more effective than tho prosont unwieldy squadrons of Iluropo, and different In ninny other aspects, but intelligent, ambitious, well-disciplined men, with a natural tnsto for tho soa and fearlessness of its daugors not nicro makeshifts or lovers of advonturo will bo required for tho fullest devol opmont of the, service, i i -Vouhtt.r.n theatres luivo buonbiunoii ,in New York during tho last twenty , five yours. Tho patent non-conibusll-ble thcntto is something yet to bo In vented. HoV about Cleveland and Morri son? asks our Democratic contempo rary. Vo can't say. How. about. .Morrison as Jehu Jlakors successor in tlio House of Representatives? is n question that tlio dlstjiigulshod In terstato Commorco Commissioner is probably more Interested in. 31 n. Vest made n ringing speech In tho Hcnalo yestoitlay against tho De pendent Pension bill, claiming that It was more in tho Interest of claim agents than of really deserving vol ernnsor their needy families, though tliu main purpose of the proposed legis lation was, of eourc, to catch tho soldier vote. Tliero were much truth, a great deal of ability, tho cleveiiwt of satlio nnd no Kiuall amount of llrst class eloquence, In the speech, charac terized thioiighout with tho Missouri Senator's Invariable good humor and courageous frankness. It Is not necessary to lemtnd him tiiat he is heading on dangerous ground, politically speaking, for no one knows it belter than Air. Vest himself, It Is the sciiso of danger, perhaps, coupled with a supreme self consciousness of being in tho right, that nerves him to the frny. lie does not propose to be come n roward and hypocrite in order to gain favor with (he politicians of the Grand Army or their attorneys, no mat ter what the effect may bo upon the Democratic parly. A conitEsro.NDENT's criticism of the Senate's National Art Commission bill ia no less just than vigorous. As nit editor of tho Scnato wo fear that Mr. Hoar is not a success.

The Immigration Convention, to meet at Now Ojl pons March 6, promises to bo largely attended. Commissions on the New York Stock Exchange have in one day reached the sum of $202,500. A Japanese hoy's composition on tho whale closes: "Tho tell of the wlialo is more, but I do not know fully well to tell." A aitANnimton in Ilangor, Me., refused to serve, took to his snow shoes and at lnt accounts was hotly pursued by tho shcrlir. Congressman Loxo, ex-Governor of Massachusetts, will have a paper on "Tlio Writing of Speeches" in tho March num ber of tho "Writer." Gold rnosrncTS in Talladega County, Ala., ara becoming really encouraging. Tho May Virginia Company nro already taking out much valuable ore. A 1'niLAPEi.riiiA man, who was dis charged from his position as street-car driver two years ago, borrowed $10, in- vesieei ii in a uncKct-a vested it in a bucket-shop, and is now worth 4-10,000. Adeuna Patti will not sing before a cross-eyed conductor. This may bo owing to superstition, or to the simple fact that sho wants to know whether ho is leveling his baton at her or a chorus girl.

Tho ignorant peoplo thereabout regard it as a sign that tho end of tho world comes this year. The human miais IS heaviest between tho ages of 1 1 mid 20. This Is a somo what remarkable scientific fact when wo como to consider that this is tho identical period at which tho human head Is big gest. Mn. Kennan's Russian paper in tho March number of tho "Century Moga zlno" contains a chapter dovotcd to tho story of tho celebration of tho Centennial Fourth of July (1870) by tho prisoners in tho Houso of Detention at St. Petersburg.

Servo imme diately in tlio dish in which it is b.ilcd, "A "Woman Named Sliciiimn." Shortly after tho war closed tho negroes began to call each other "lady" and "gen tleman," but In speaking of tho whites they generally called them that "man" and that "woman." An instunco oc curred a fow years ago in which Geuor.il W. T. Sherman played a part, Tho Gen eral was sitting in front of his house ono pleasant evening with somo friends smok ing and talking when n fellow as black as the ncc of spades sidled up and addressing the General tuid' "Is do a lady here named JolinmnV" "No," said tho Gen eral. "Woll," -ttld tho darkey, "I think thero mut boa lady of that nnino living here, because sho is my wile, mid sho is working for a uvdiuh named Sherman."
