The District Commissioners t o-day a d d it ssed
a communication to Hon. A. s. Williams,
chairman ?f the House committee on the
District of Columbia, inviting the favor
able consideration of the committee to
a communication of Alexander Kay,
Esq.. with accompanying papers re
lating to an obstruction in the channel of
the Potomac river, known as the Virginia and
Georgetown channel, and the request for a
Congressional appropriation for the removal
?>f the same. The object of the Commissioners
is to bespeak, as far as proper, its influence in
obtaining the appropriation asked for.
STREET REPAIRS ANT) improvements.
In compliance with Senate resolution of De
cemlier 14th. 1877, directing the District Com
missioners to make a report to the Senate
what streets and avenues in the District re
quire repairs or other Improvements; the
character of the present pavement in each
case: the original cost of each of said pave
ments, and how paid for: and what is the
character of repairs and improvements pro
posed in each case and t he-estimate cost there
of. the Chief Engineer, to whom the resolution
was referred by the Commissioners, says:
"The streets and avenues requiring repairs
ami improvements are given in detail in ac
companying schedules. The character of the
present pavement is given in each case, as also
the original cost: the streets are classified ac
cording to the character of repair and im
provement proposed, and the estimate of cost
given in each case, together with the aggregate
estimated expenditure in each class. The
original cost of the pavements proposed to be
replaced was paid by assessing one-third to
owners of adjoining property and two-thirds
to the general fund, except in three instances,
which are noted, of work done under the old
corporation government and assessed in full
against adjoining property. It is shown by
the schedule of wood pavements to be replaced
with pavements of other material, that the
cost is estimated to be from $121,391.50 to
$**4,410, depending upon quality and kind of
bituminous pavement which is to l>e used. I
am of the opinion that only the best quality of
this class of pavements should be put down.
The schedule of other improvements needed
is arranged in the order of precedence which
I recommend for selection. It gives only a
probable cost of $185,019.71 to $ti0V.i50.71, and
this amount would be well expended."
REPORT ON THE NEW WORKHOUSE.
Mr. Thomas B. Entwisle, inspector of build
ings, has submitted to the District Commis
sioners, at their request, a report of the his
tory and present condition of the new work
house. He says: " I have examined the pai>ers
and accounts and find no records in this office
of an estimate as a basis for the amount?
*14,0U>?appropriated by Congress. Col. Lubey,
late commissioner of ttie Washington asylum,
in a letter to the Commissioners of Dec. IS.
1*76. states that the amount appropriated
($14,000) would not be sufficient, and suggests
that $25,1*10 l;e appropriated. The next paper
throwing light upon this subject is a circular
dated April 5,1S77, inviting proposals for the
erection and completion of the new work
house. The bids were duly opened, and one
Thomas Williams was the lowest bidder, in
the sum of ?14.'.'S7. In a communication to the
Commissioners April 16.1877, Mr. T. M. Plow
man, late inspector <>f buildings, recommends
that the work 1m* given out in separate con
tracts, as the lowest bid is in excess of the ap
propriation, and expresses the belief that by
this course the building could be erected
within the sum appropriated. This letter was
referred backwitn the <|iiestion: "By using
piison labor and by omitting cells, and with
pebble-dash finish do you think that the jail
can be built for the sum of $12,000?" (Two
thousand dollars having been set apart for
taking down and removing material of old
jail to new site.) To this question the inspec
tor makes reply: "I have no hesitancy
in saying that this building can be con
structed within the sum of $12,000." He
is then ordered to reject the bids and
proceed with the work on this plan.
Contracts were entered into for the different
kinds of work and material, and in some cases
without any or but little competition, and in
one easy the contract for furnishing rolled iit>n
beams, was awarded to Messrs. Smith, Birge
it Co., at a sum of ?>42. although Messrs. Gray
it Noves were the lowest bidders, at $5ol. 12. It
w as found necessary to construct a sub-cellar
under the north wing and center portion of
the building. This was done at an additional
cost of $2.iV/>.87, and is yet to be finished. This
extra expense necessitated a reduction of the
original plan,and the south wing was left off.
the foundations had been laid, some material
furnished and on hand, ?'stimated by Mr.
Plowman to be worth $787.20. The reduction
in cost, as set forth in the same statement is
1.06, and contractors were notified that
their respective contracts had been reduced in
the following sums: Thomas Lewis, for brick
work. $1,707.7*; White Bros., for iron work,
$255: Baldwin Bros., frames, sash, &c.. -f i2">. By
leaving oft said w ing and reducing the con
tract as above, a balance of $2:542.67 is shown,
which Mr. Plowman stated was ample, omit
ting the south wing, to complete the building.
To make the building so that it can be occu
pied will now require an appropriation of
$2.-i()0. This sum does not suffice.to complete
the two parts now erected (north wing and
center j ortion) according to the plans, but
only to make them habitable for tin1 winter.
The cost to complete the two parts 1 estimate
at $\ijOo, including furnaces, etc. The cost of
finishing the south wing will be $7,500. The
total sum for completing the two unfinished
j>ortions and the south wing will be $12,5io.
the construction of the building has proved
to t>e faulty, ami some extra expenses have
been incurred by reconstructing several of the
brick aiches. j took charge of this office on
the 1st day of October, 1S77. All arches had
been put up, and one had been taken down
previous to my appointment to office, by order
of tiie Commissioners. On the first dav of my
appointment 1 made an examination of the
budding. I found several cracks, and some of
? lie arches had given away, caused by the span
being too great and the abutments not being
strong enough to withstand the pressure. I
recommended in a letter dated December 20th
to take down three arches at once, and .econ
stim t them w ith an extra beam iu each arch,
reducing the spans one-half; January 10th, 1178,
1 again made a request to reconstruct five
more, and have proceeded by your orders to
do so. The extra expense for these recon
st met ions, and such other as maybe needed
in future on account of faulty construction of
the work already done, is not included in the
above estimate. '
Xah'onul rhff'tci'.?The beautiful opera of
"La Favorita" was presented last evening in
splendid style. The audience was very large
and enthusiastic, the artists all in good voice,
and the opera well put upon the stage. The
whole performance was spirited and smooth.
M ile Koze made her first appearance here in
the role of " Leonora." and at once won hosts
of admirers by her handsome appearance,
and fine singing and acting. Her dressing
was exquisite. Messrs. Karl- Verdi, and Conly
all did well. To-night Miss Kellogg will have
a benefit, which will prove the gala night of
the week. The three prima donnas, Kellogg,
Caryatid Koze. will all appear in prominent
roles in "Mignon," and the house will be
packed from pit to dome.

The Two Yonnif Urn Who Partook
nf Chinee " Lwhw."
In the northern division of the conservatory
in the Botanic gardens there is growing a
Irnit tree known to the heathen Chinee as
"Leechee." Jnst before the assembling of
this Congress it had a goodly quantity of its
curious-looking, very agreeable fruit on it,
which was watched with interest by the High
land Scot from the land of the Argyle. in
whose care it has flourished for many a year.
The said Caledonian has all the demure grav
ity in extelnals of the great chief himself.
Having been taught to articulate in the lan
guage of Ossian, and speaking no other till an
adult, he has never fairly mastered the lan
guage of the Sassanacli, but speaks it slowly
with a peculiar emphasis. While passing
around in the performance of his duties he
discovered two well-dressed men stealing the
leechees and eating them. With uplifted hands
he exclaimed " guue gracious! are ye eating
thae poisinousfruit?" In an instant the hands
of both were on the place the fruit had gone
to. The door being open the race of the pair
to Dr. Hickling's,tfee nearest drug store, there
to be relieved, was a rapid one, to say the
least. Home delay occurred at the start by
one of the out door hands ordering them on
the grass. Relief could have twen obtained
easier had they looked over their shoulders
and seen the shaking sides of the canny Scot
as he watched the race. Sidney Smith might
have learned that something less than a sur
gical operation was necessary to get a joke
out of the head of a Scotsman.
The Nionr Lodging House.?A circular
just issued by the managers of this useful
charity, says: "Duringthe latter part of the
winter of I87"?, some young ladies, students in
the Rosslyn Institute, of the city of Washing
ton, realizing the necessity of ministering to
the wants of the homeless and worthy tran
sient poor during that exceptionally inclement
season, determined to establish a night lodg
ing house, and for this laudable purpose held
a fair in their class-rooms in the month of Jan
uary,'lS7t>, from which they realized $2?2.70.
To this, private subscriptions were added
amounting to upwards of $5fAi, when a meeting
of the contributors was called, and an organi
zation effected under the name of 'The Night
Lodging House Association of Washington,'
and officers were duly elected. Bedsteads, bed
ding, and other necessities were at. once pur
chased, and the Commissioners of the District
of Columbia gave to the association the free
use of a building on Louisiana avenue, between
!th and 10th streets, commonly known as the
Central guardhouse, which was at once fitted
ui> for the object intended, and on the 1st of
March, 1N76, the rooms were opened for the re
ception of lodgers, nearly all of whom came
hungry, and someeven in a starving condition.
The lodging house was open eight months in
the year 1*76 and six months in 1877. during
which time 11,060 persons were accommo
dated?being 7iii per month?and 22,12) meals
were served. The sanitary condition of the
house and the inmates is carefully
provided for. Before retiring, each person
is compelled to take a bath and to sleep in a
clean night shirt provided for him. tor all
these privileges, no chnrge whatever is made.
The building lias now complete accommo
dations for fifty lodgers each night. Relying
upon the generous support of tlie public, we
commend this charity to your favorable con

Princeton Alumni Reunion.?The sev
enth annual banquet of the Washington
Alumni Association of Princeton College was
helil last evening at the Arlington The ven
erable Dr. McLean, for many years a president
of the college, honored the association with his
presence, and added much to the interest of
the occasion. After the menu had been dis
cussed the president, Dr. Lindsay, class of
1820, in a brief speech announced that he
would call for speeches by classes. Mr. Stans
bury, class of 1M0. said that his speech was
written, and proceeded to read letters from
the Kev. Dr. Cuthbert, Dr. Welling, Charles
Abert, and President McCosh and others,
covering their regrets that they could not
be present. Hon. Heister Clymer responded
for the class of 1S-17. Mr. Backus, of the
class of ISf.l, said that he had heard Dr.
Cuyler, once speaking of his class, say that
none had yet got into stale prison, and only
three in Congress. But he could say of his
class that while one had been in prison,
none had been in Congress. Senator Came
ron. class of 1852, was present in the early part
of the evening, but was obliged to leave before
the speeches began. The following also made
brief speeches: Mr. Crawford, Mr. Voorhees,
Mr. Davidson, Mr. Jones, of Alabama, Kev.
Mr. McCauley, Mr. Cameron, (class of to.)

filed and overruled, and, upon hearing, the l>ill was

Water for the Eyes. ?A writer in
Frquery Magazine thinks that, whatever
hesitation there may be justly called for in
recommending one or another or the various
loiions now so popular, there ueed be no such
doubt in respect to cold water or pure water.
He says in cases of much inflammation or
difficulty of opening the eyelids in the morn
ing, experienced by so many, the water should
be warm, and it may be mixed with warm
milk, but in nearly all other cases it should be
cold. All those who have been engaged in
reading and writing during several hours at a
stretch, and especially at night, should care
iully bathe the eyes with cold water before
going to bed and the first thing in he morn
ings ablutions. All artisans, too, who work
at a blazing fire, ought often to wash their
eyes with cold pure water, and so should ail
those who work in wool, particularly carders
and spinners, aiul those likewise who are em
ployed in woolen and cotton manufactures,
the fine dust which such works disperse often
producing cataracts, obstinate inflammations,
swelled eyelids, etc.

Discovered thirty-live years ago by I'rof. Lyon, of

being the best liair dressing ever pro

are not destroyed, it actually perforins these
seeming miracles, of which the following is a

It is not necessary to inquire strictly either
at . o e.ock in the morning or any other time
how many women workers there are who must
go abroad in all weathers. But the question
ni,ay b<' Cl>nsidered a perti
im nt one by the students of street life. A man
generally desires to reach his place of business
n as comfortable a state as possible, so he
\\ears an old hat. a rough coat that turns oif
tin lain, and thick boots, and turns up his
ll.VoVi'-18 we'J out of the snow or mud or the
si lashing water. There is nothing essentiallv
feininene in wet leet,or iu the carryingaround
ol soaked or muddy skirts: yet it apnears u.
considered by some women who have to
?f Tlie " waterproof either
of stuff or the extremely light and useful gos
samer rubber, isa part of the wardrobe of most
women who can procure whatever is needed
bv way of wraps. And there are some sensi
ble beings also who, not being able to afford ail
leurapsthey um (|t,sil.(. Wjsely ,j|OOS(. t iie
* fore the beautiful, and have their
everyday winter garment, waterproof, as well
as warm. Others (some among them delicate
%oting girls) give more consideration to the
fashion ot costume than to its materials, and
among these may be seen, on wet days that
poor economy which carries the show-y dress
fsl(.)n,1>; weaLtlu'i', with all insufficient
tovei of shawl or jacket, and that soon re
duces it to shabbiness. No one, not even a
man, more needs to study comfort and light
ness and common sense in dress than the wo
men who stand all day behind counters, or in
lactones, or sit in work rooms with damp
boots or skirts, or who have to do much walk
ing in our winter streets, a dress that may
be securely shortened without the painfulness

A Remedy for Burns and scalds.?At a
meeting of the Massachusetts Dental Society
in Salem. Dr. G. K. Waters of Boston gave a
detailed account of a discovery which Tie has
recently made of a remedy for burns and
scalds, n was claimed that the application of
bicarbonate of soda, which is the simple cook
ing soda to be found in all households, or
other alkalis in a neutral form, would afford
instantaneous cessation of pain from the
severest burns or scald, and in all cases of
mere superficial burning the treatment would
effect a cure in the course of a few hours. At
the meeting referred to the practical value of
the remedy was demonstrated by a test re
quiring considerable nerve to put into opera
tion, and still more faith in the efficacy of the
novel treatment which was to be illustrated.
The doctor dipped the sponge into boiling
water and squeezed it over his right wrist,
the water flowing almost completely around
the arm, and nearly encircling it with a
severe scald something like two inches in
width. .Not content with this, he dipped the
.sponge a second time, and pressed it closely
on the under side of his wrist for thirty
seconds. He then applied bicarbonate of soda
to the scalded surface, and laid over it a wet
cloth, and the intense pain was banished as if
by magic. On the next day after this severe
test, the scalds, wilk the exception of the part
F'rnosely made so severe, were practically
healed, only a slight discoloration of the skin
showing where the scalding water had flowed
