A correspondent inquire# why church?? do
not have affixed near their entrance a tablet
giving the name of the charch and its pastor.
Why not, indeed? There is no question oftener
arked. particularly by strangers. than "Can
yon tell me what or whose charch this Is?" and
a tablet sacb a# i- suggested would be. not only
a convenience to the public, tut oftentimes an
advantage to the church itself. In New Vork
the ironts of churches are generally used by un
dertakers for advertising their occupation and
I !a<-e of b'i-lr?ese; but this is a species of infor
ruat on that mu?t people prefer to acquire very
la?e ii' life W hat they no want to knuw, and
what they are rarely able to find out without
more trouble than the Information may ba

The statue of General Kawiics, by Baiily. re
ceiitlj put in place in Kawlms Square, coint*
one in the nnmber of objects of interest to be
inspected by tho-e ui dertaking to "do" the
City, but it really add# very little to the art at
tractions ot the national capital. It Is enough
like its subject, and fairly enougi represent-*
the average officer of the late w^r, to save it
frcni condemnation, but at the #i?md time It
lat a* the spirit, grace, and feeling which ar
rest the attention of the behol ler without his
beirg able to tell why, and holds it in spite of
b:m.?'If. "So-ho" is perhaps the term that l>9*t
expresses the character ot the work; and th-ire
?o be mora than a mere accidental pro
prletv In the circumstance tba* on the ba?-e of
the fi'gnretbe name of the founder who cast it is
m<-re prominent than that of the arti-t wao
conceited and modeled it. Nevertheless, it is
well that the statue, such as it is, has beon
erected. Kawliiis was as knightly a soldier as
baa ever been chronicled in Hoig or story, and
it is better that posterity should have this pre
sentment ot hiin than none at all.

In the way of theatiicals, the week just
clotir g has been an agreeable one. touching as
it did the two e*trme# of the dr~ma, and on the
whole it was rather successful. Ai Ford's, Mr.
McCollough appeared iu several of his favorite
characters. As Mr. Mc'Jullough is a careful
ai d capable actor, It will surprii-a no one to
ltarn that he gave general satisfaction in all of
thtm, while in some he largely justified the
claim ot his friends that Le is the b -st tragedian
at present on the American sta^e. At the
National, the Alnieo troupe played to fa'r but
not crowded hou.-es, though they were as Urge,
perhaps, as her managers had a liglit to expect.
The trr.th is, Aimee has grown a little stale,
and while her company is strong in point ot
numbers, it is rather weak in qutiity. It in
ch d -s no first-rate voices, few real clever
actors, and not enough of piquant and dasning
beaut; . and without these any enterta nment !n
a foreign tongue becomes a dull an l tiresome
affair to the largest part of the audience, par
ticularly when prolonged through a period ot
thr?e hours or more. Nr*? we' 't there la to be

scene being laid in this clty,.ast ai sr the close

THE NEXT HOUSE.,
lis Orcitni/nllon.
The returns or the elections of Tuesday last
have settled beyond dispute that the democrats,
for the first time in fifteen years, have a decided
majority In the House or Representatives. The
House has attached to It, in various stations,
about two hundred and twenty officers. It is
but tair to infer, inasmuch as the democracy
rigidly adhere to the axiom <-to the Tictor be
longs the spoils," that a change will be made in
every place by the incoming Foity-fourth Con
gress. No matter what may be the peculiar
aptitude ot any of these now filling the several
positions, and which they have tilled tor years
under republican rule, a" change Is inevitable.
The democratic parry always had the reputa
tion of preserving strict patty discipline. Tbey
permit none in their camp not known on their
fare to render the most exacting fealty. For
this reason it is idle to buoy tbe hopes of any
holding office under the present power* that lit-,
with the expectation of renewed lease of life,
wl.ict might seem possible on account of tbe
knowledge necessary to administer the more
important machinery of a legislative b.Hlv?a 1

Of ccurse the >sitlon of honor is the Speaker,
and right here the party is confronted with
difficulties. The pioruinen* member* who loom
up as candidates are fernando Wood, of N*#
Voik, 11,chad C. Kerr, of Indian.?. Samuel
Randall, of Pennsylvania. and Henry B. Payne,
who defeated Par runs in the Cleveland district.
The rtrciigth of Mr. Wood would seem to )k)
augmented by tbe fact that he ha* heretofore
received the empty honor of the part) ax thdlr
nominee lor the speakership. '1 his, however.
w>i hIku there was no possibility of succe**,
and it was a mere formalily to nominate a can
didate. Now a candidacy mean* success, and

tir>t is the unpleasant reputation iu political lite
bed by him in tbe past, eveu though for years
be ha- compotted himself wltu a dignity which,
if adorned. h.as become almost a grace, and sits
natuially up?u him. His bonest intentions
Wunld be que&tloned. It will t>e said that he has
t. o many perianal, social friends In the ma

cun.mittees. Again, he ha* b-?en too pro
nounced upon tbe financial issues to satisfy
the hungry intl-itiontste of the We*t. If
chosen would it add to tbe prestige of the

MICHAEL C KERR, Of INDIANA,
is a r pe scholar, a liable in speech, distinguished
in many capacities, honest in Intention, an!
deservedly popular with ail sections- His nam?
carries with it more strength than Wood, and
a wider popularity than Randall, because ot tbe
tact that his record is not open to attack, and
his views on the tariff are more in accord with
democratic principles tban Mr. Randall's.
There is nothing in his long career in Congress
whit h could be brought op to hu ser.ous disad
vantage. He has dignity, grace, ability, repu
tation, aptitude and popularity. H s cbai.cea
are the best to-dav of any of the candidat m
suggested, except that It might be urged against
him that his service has not been continuous,
the hiatus occurring in the Forty-third Con
gress, to which he was not elected, being de
feated as a candidate for the stat'j at large by
Gocdlove S. Otth. in all probability he wai be
the next Speaker, unless combinations be made
against him by Wood's eastern friends, which is
apprehended, and m this event
okb. ra\MK.
of the 2uh f>hio district, is spoken ol a* tan
compromise ca dlda'e.
tan C<'KMITTKI?.
After the selection ot a Speaker has been de
cided, the troables of organization have only
halt been disjused of. Another important dufy
is the make up of the, various committee*. l"hi?
devolves upon the speaker, and is anything but
an agreeable do^y. The poet of honor, and to
the holder of which the prestige of l>eing the
leader or t?;e House is delegated, is the chair
man.-hlp of the Committee or Ways and Vieaos.
In tt?;.s Connection, also, Fernando Wood again
lOotns up. If he is forced to give way as Speaker
kr.d Kerr is chosen, he may urge his claims for
the committee chairmanship on seetlonal and
other grounds, ard as having been on it alrea.ly.
If the Fast has the presiding officer tbe West
will demand the committee, the next post of
honor. Handall does not come to tbe surface a*
an available candidate, on account of his views
on the tail*. For this reason, if the next House
bad been republican, it was doubtful whether
Mr. Blaine would have givtn Mr. K el ley the
committee. Tbe chairman of the committee
hinges altogether on the selection of Speaker,
and may be filled either by Wood or Kerr.
Tbe next committee ot importance is that
of Appropriation* which could be had by
Randall it he desired it, inasmuch a?
Marshall, Of Illinois, the leading democrat
who ha* served with it is defeated. Swann, of
Maryland, wbose sert.ca has been also wubtbe
appropriation committee can hardly crave it,
a? he has not the strength of voice to eip.vh
the v atic us details ot the several approbation
bills usually exacted by members on th- fl >or
It Randall did not desire this chairmanship he
could probably have either Banking and Cur
rency or Commerce. In such an event Helium
,*oulu in all probability (>t> made cuairman ot
the Appiopriation Committor.
I'Le Committee <?n Foreign Aft ur* will prftt?
biy be given to Sunset Cox if ne desires ir. be
dues not dt sire this however It ho can g?t any
other equally a* prominent. His ambition in to
sttvc on the Ways and Mean.- Committed, and
he would probably prefer to be second or tuird
w th that ccmmiitet tban accept the chilrinau
sblp of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
This would make way lor the south, and give
Swann, ol Maryland, the latter commute*).
It ilotmati is not made chairman ot the Ap
propriation Committee, he will probably be
given War CU.ms or Commerce, having served
on both.
1 he <ludiciarv Committee, which Ben. Butler
wiU vacate, would have fallen to the lot ot
Clarkson K. Potter, of Mew York, bad he been
elected to the uext House, as it is, it is bard to
speculate on ?' Ben's'' successor, as l.ldredge,
Potter and Jewett, the democrats who served
with It, are net members ofthe44th Congrew.
Clj mer, of Pennsylvania, will probablv claim
tbe Committee on Public Lands; Archer, of
Maryland, the Naval Committee; Wells, of Mis
souri, Public Buildings and Grounds.
It i> of course impossible to predict what dis
position will be made by the democrats of the
Independent or Liberal republican*. If the
speech made by Gen. Banks previous to hia
election in Boston, wbereln he disclaimed being
a democrat, la to be taken as aa evidence of the
feelings ot the others in this respect, they will
all be given the cold shoulder. More than
probable thev will only be o&ered crumbs aay
bow, as the democrat* bave enoagh of a suaos
pure majority, and can bave their owa way
without making any " entangling alliances.''
Had the strength of parties in the next Hoase
been pretty evenly balanced Banks would have
stood a good chance for the speakership, but
the heavy majority gained by the democrats
puts that out of the question.

General Boyntoo, the veteran Washington
correspondent of the Cincinnati Gaz'ttf. wrote,
prior to the November elections, ttie following
speculations about the democratic organization ,
ot the House in case of their success
Mr. Blaine would descend to the floor, ami be
come one of tbe leader*, if not the It-ader, of tbe J
opposition. He von d be a*"'ttnM probably t ? I
the Committee of Ways and Metnu. an 1occ~?pv
a place next below the lowest democrat. 1, >???
wise the present well-know? cbairmtn of rnt
committees-would change from tie* 1 to too of
tbe committees they now hold pi tee upon
A? to patronage- the small field of the II? i*
officers and employees would be the onlv grac
ing ground in Wa-hlngton for the hungry h >?(?
of the long tasting democracy.
The Clerk of the Hou?e bv forty-seven per
sons on his rolls; the Seargeant *'."a? us tli"
I?oorkeeper twenty-six, ai.d the Postma-ter
ten; there are twt-nty-eight committee clerk", j
tctal, one hundred an-! fourteen. which will j
then represent the Congressional patronajtof
the grfat democratic pa.tv. I'nder the tre
mendous pressurt which members will etp-ri
ence, they may increase the rolls to two h 'o
dred, pos*iMy to three hundred; bat even a'
twice or thrice the present force, the wiole
thing would be but a crumb with winch t"> te^d
an army. A tew friends might be smuggled
info the department*, or into minor position* in
the country, in exchange for help tor patting
needed appropriations through; bat it will no
do tor the hungry democratic seekers after
sustenance to count largely upon food from
? bote quarters. If democrats refuse necessary
appropriations to carry on the government, it?
return to full powet will belong postponed.
Investigations will surely be ? teiture of tha
Forty - fourth Congress. if it is democratic; f>r
while it is a party which never exp.tses itself. it
will ta*e that occasion to appear virtuous, ? hen
it has not been long enough in power to h ?ve
its own members compromise in any great de
gree. Fhe duty of the minority will" then be to
show that Congressional corruption is not a
thing of party, by bringing to light the ?l ni >
crats who hare in the past rigureflin evervthing
wl.lcb can form the subject of Inquiry.
As the House has the power of Impeachment
it is much more than likely that the Senate
would be called npon to try a number of tele
ral officials. Bat this fear of Impeachment
might not (>e an unwholesome dreal when tm
ion ant offices were to be tilled.
Each House would kill the pur?lr partisan
U gi si at ion of the other. The Senate, which in
any ev^nt must remain republican till 13"7,
would allow no measure ol this kind to pass Into
law, and the House wuuli m the sama minner
curb the Senate
There would doubt lee? be many bills passed in
each body, an 1 sent to the oPier waa the desire
fobavetlieni rejected, a? part ol' the plav to
obtain the favor of the peop'e. The legKatl-m
which did pas? and secure the approval of th>
President would probably be of a chara,-ter
which the people would judge to be fair
S.-arcily atntLiiit; else w j alii stand a chance of
passing."
_ All in all, it would l>e tbe liveliest se??lon o"
Congress wb.ch the country has witnessed tor
mary years. The Hou?e would beooms tin*
grt kt**i tor sharp and continued fighting, opened
and m<tii tamed by the men who lor years have
controlled the body, and whose only cb ?nce 'o
gaii ing power weiild be through a boll an I a
decisive battle. The Pr?sidencv wiil be tli
prize of tbe (tni^ an 1 the plotting", the in

Work on the Capitol
TI e 'ast Congress g.ave the sum ol f2tO.'V>0 to
grade ihe east front of the Capitol, and orna
nienf, in seme substantial and permanent wav.
the wi-ole landscape of Capitol Hill. This w..r'k
is, in its way, a large undertaking; and it is n >?
in that desperate degree of v'gor which indi
cates the speidv meeting of Congress, and a
dtsire to have sometbicg done beiore thev %$
semble.
This Capitol bui'ding is a lit model I >r one to
study all tbe history ol his country. ImpIo*
ptogTffs toward an eternal mcimpleteneiu
should be taken up by the patient political sru
dent a.- a type ot the best utimnn sooiety. W?
are never done. It is always goiug on. W.
walk round it, and select coigns of var>?<tge t
atsail; it reforms all its own defects, but stil
defccfs are ascribed to it, on which men tinker
A helpless and beautiful thing, it olten ns?-st .
its truest proj?0rtl0Es, and feels the hand o;
6ttfrifi?e most rigorou.-ly, in ?uch extrtm
afflictions as war, fire, and Capitol moving
And every day, looking to ite interest as a thiu^
of art and utility, the Capitol ca?t* a shadow o
censuie upon some oversight of tbtf o
some uncertainty of the future.
The work now going on was alt provided fo
eighty years ago?longer than man's three
Jcore-and-ten. The tiret architect, a sensild
but overridden Frenchman, showed that the sit
of tbe edifice had two profiles, and that u wa
set on the ridge of one of them.
The Capitol was put up by civil commission
ers, slinily informed on anything but patrlot'?m
and they generally despised artists around them
who could not get any votes. Mr. Hallet re
marked:
"Gentlemen, you are making the front of m?
building face up a bill. Tbe ground will swal
low it up to the approaches. Move it over to
this crest, or put It between the two crests, and
grade both down."
They stole hie plans, like hereditary politi
cians, and discharged him.
But alter siity years, the architect* have dls
covered those plans. After waiting for a long
time for a good chance, they make their point
Little by little they make it. First, they have
two squares of buildings, which encroached
uj>on the edifice, and supplied gin and boarding
to generation* of Congressmen, removed. This
costs about $000,0o0. Then, by driblets ot
S30.GC0 or ?-10,0'Ji/ a year, the approaches to the
"hinder" pTofi'e, the back side, are terracod.
Thtn. admonished by the terracing, the Sena
tors et a!., advise some street graaing. sena
tors, you must know, generally direct the art.
matters around the Capitol, even to the public
printing, which they only relinquished two or
three j ears ago to the House. The streets were
graded and the old squares taken in, at a very
great cost. It was at this psriodj when every
thing that had been dune s<ieme<i to be a real
improvement, that the thinking, tasteful tolk*
made their game on the false profile. It parsed
right through Congress, in the haste ot the end
ot the session; and sad as the admission m>is*
be. many ot these eleventh-hour votes aieof
better inspiration than projects "nibbled to
death by pismires,"' as Bob Sc-hr.tick one* said
The eve of the great commander, whether tu i
aims or art, espies and avails himself ot the
iinmediate opportunity.
1 he sum of $?,U00 has been exj>ended cut
ling oft the plain east oi the Capital, so as to
iilt the building out or the grouud. la this
work, enough dirt ha? been obtained to grade
oh many acres of Capitol Udl, towards the deso
late rtats on the south. The best trees have
been bcdilv dug out and transplanted.?some of
them fifty years old. The remainder of the
money is ppent conducting drives through this
paik, lower ing gas and water pipes taking out
old spring-fed fish pools, and placing marble
seats around the edince. with ilights of steps
and bits of terrace, like the work below the
mall in Central Park. Two fountains of bronze
and evergreens will cost tU.O^ each.?
in Chicago TriUune.
Apr bat o? a Railroad Thai*?A Zhi
charged inginrtr A!trtnp!t 'o Throw a Man from
the Cars ?A New Haven dispatch to the New
York lleruld, dated the V.h instant, says that on
the evening previous Henry K. Bradlev, a mer
chant of New Haven, while riding oa an out
ward-bound Shore Line train, was attacked and
severely beaten bv Klliott H. Smtth, a dis
charged engineer ot'the Shore Line road. It
took place shortly after the cars left the depot
lu New Haven. Smith was discharged from the
employ of the railroad company a tew davs ago
on complaint of Mr. Bradley aad *eth B. John
son, of tha Palladium, both commuters on the
road, who charged that Smith was m tbe habit
of driving his train at a rate of sp*ed which
placed their lives la constant peril. ?m th was
greatly enraged by his discharge, and meeting
Mr. Bradley on the train, oa whiofc he himsel.
was a passenger, he at once attacked him, beat
ing him severely aboat the head and body, and
only desisted wbea oompelled to do so bv the in
terference of other passengers la addition t ?
this Smith seized and attempted to throw Mr
Bradlev from the train; aa act which, had it
been ?ntceisful, would la all probability have
had a fatal termination, as the cars were mov
ing at tbe i ate of forty miles an hoar at tbe
time. News of the assault was telegraphed to
Sberiti Hart, of Onilford, ana when the train
