Leav ing on a special train at 1:30 Thursday morning we arrived in the National capital at about BJ o'clock, there was raging at the time a storm of rain and sleet Which made an effort to leave the car a very disagreeable one. In spite of the storm, however, several of the boys at once proceeded to take In the sights of i he town.. The morning of the 4th or March.l881,dnwnedonthe capital city amid a gloomy rain which bid fair to turn the glorious prepara tions for the inauguration into a sad failure. Sellers of seats on the,"prln cipal line of the procession were will ing to sell at ; any price with few takers. The hour"! of eleven o'clock brought a change lor the better In the weather' prospects. The price of tickets rose as the bouyant heart of the great throng grew light with the prospect, of a shining sun. A cold northeast wind made standing stilt a very disagreeable task, although when the procession moved those In the line were deeply sensible to a steadily growing warmth which gradually de veloped Into perspiration, so that when the order was given for "double quick 11 m", no one complained of the cold wind as it served to cool off' tbej heated browaof the boys. On each side of the procession a dense crowd pushed and shoved each other to get a better view and It was with great difficulty Hhe police were en abled to keep the crowd back, In several cases it being even necessary to resort to clubbing. The great pro cession was two hours 'in passing a given point, and since Sherman's famous review at the close of the war there has not been so fine or grand a procession In Washington. The avenues of the city which are named in honor of the several states, were decorated with arches covered with the national colors, and ornamented with emblems commemorative of the progress or chief traits of the States to which they belong. That old chimney on the banks of the historic Potomac known as the Washington monument also came in for its share of the honors of the day. Two huge letters "G. W." made of bunting were displayed on two sides of the top of the monument while numerous flags surmounted the unfinished and unsightly pile. After the parade the members of the Company nt once commenced to take in the sights of the city. And of all the cities in the great Republic none can be compared with the capital city for the number and variety of things of interest to the American citizen. The capitol, situated like the capital of ancient Rome on a hill, command-' from its western front one of the finest views mortal eye ever witnessed. Entering the portals of this mngnifi cent pile which occupies 3j acres, lias been in course of construction since 1815, and has cost to the present time about $1:5,000,000, the visitor reaches the rotunda, 300 feet in circumference, and which contains six magnificent paintings costing each from $8,000 to $10,000, commemorating acts of the first existence of the Republic which fire the heart of all lovers of our com mon country, and kindle anew the flame of patriotism in the breast of each freeman. GozingTupward the eye readies the wonderful allegorical painting of Bruniidi. The distant sight of this great fresco ;makcs us anxious for a nearer view. Climbing the narrow iron steps of the grand dome we stand near this masterpiece. A feeling of awe and veneration fills the mind of the beholder. Could a person go blindfolded lo the national capitol, and see nothing but this one work lie would be amply repaid for all the trouble and expense it might be to him. Ascending still higher we emerge from thej dome and tanding on the upper terrace lean over the stone bulwark and from the several points of the canipass take in the magnificent views presented to the eye. We made the ascent of the dome in company with Jas. D. White. The iron steps are just wide enough to admit the passage of two persons. A continuous stream of people mostly soldiers, keeping to the right filled the steps like an endless chain, one side going up the other down, at times such was the jam that one almost wished himself safely at the foot again. How long this stream was kept up we know not, but when we left there seemed to be no abatement From base to summit, and around the do:ue one continuo-is, moving stream of humanity. In the stream the Keystone boys were the most numer ous, and ever and anon three cheers and a tiger were given for Pennsyl vania. Leaving this part of the building we passed through the rotunda and entered the gallery of the Senate Chamber as the hands of the clock indicated the hour of 10. Taking a position next the reporter's gallery we very fortunately fell in with ' the gentlemanly correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer who pointed out the illustrious senators as they entered the chamber and otherwise made our visit pleasant until the hour or 12 ar rived, when Vice President Arthur entered, the gavl fell, praver was ottered by the Chaplain, and the Senate proceeded to business. Several motions were made. among which was one granting to General Hancock the the privilege of the floor or the Semite during his stay in Washington. Several Senators made lemarks, especially Blaine of Maine, and Conk ling of New York. After a short session the Senate took a reces until 3 o'clock. After leaving the Senate chamber we hastened to the cars to wait three hours for the train to start. During our wait several members of the 8th regiment got Into a squabble with a negro. They took the boy's whip and after fooling with him awhile handed it back. The negro then ran to his cart and seizing a piece of gas pipe about 2 J feet In length he returned to the fruy. The captain of the company remonstrated with him to no avail, when on his continuing to call the boys names, they made a rush for the colored gentleman who ran followed by the crowd. Turning on his heel he struck the foremost soldier with his gas pipe knocking him flatter than a pancake. The hue and cry was then raised and the way that darkey took leg bail for security has not been excelled In that section for years. He escaped and it is well he did. No person who has visited Wash ington for as short a time as wedid but that wishes to renew the visit. A gentleman on the train told a gentle man from Rldgway that Washington was ' the most interesting city on the face of the globe, and he had been in nearly all the principal cities of Europe and other great divisions of the old world. The Capitol alone would consume days, were one to examine the numerous works of art that abound In the gigantic structure. Then the other places of interest would occupy weeks and weeks, and still , the mind woulo not tire of the endless panorama of won derful sights to be seen In the Amer ican capital. "See Naples and die" was the proverb of those who lived In other climes, but see Washington and live with a firmer belief in the stabil ity and grandure of our institution1'. No American should fill to visit the Capital city, if only for a day, for then would all say with the feeling of pride that swelled in the breast of the im mortal Webster, "I was born an American, I live an American and with the grace of God I shall die an American " Time has proved in the location of the Capital as In many other mutters the great wisdom and foresight of the founders of the Re public. Volumes have been written on tliis subject, and yet other volumes can be written and the subject not be exhausted. To see Washington is good but to see the city on the occasion of the inauguration of a President is better. Countless thousands of people cluster around the grand stand at the east front of the capitol to witness the inauguration of James A. Garfield. He steps with manly tread from the ranks of the common people to take in his hand the scepter of authority over 5-3,00:1,003 of people, and there is no objection. No family name makes liis title to the the position secure, no long line of ancestry backs his com ing. Quite the contrary. From the towpatli to the presidency is the tale of his elevation, illustrating the daz zling possibilities that are within the reach of every youth in the land who is willing with patient toil and honest purpose to clime the towering ladder of fame. What one man has done another may do. At the same time we see another man step from his ex alted place back to the ranks of the common people. In this act is the grundure of our free institutions made more transparent. And more firmly are we grounded in the belief that the foundations of the government laid by Washington, and Jefferson, sup ported by their children will be secure and sound even after the march of the relentless centuries shall have crum bled the pyramids into dust and lowered the majesty of the column of Trojan. The night of March 4th ushered in one of tiie grainiest display of lire works that the city liad ever known. The crowd was nn immense one that witnessed the sublime sight. Such a pushing and surging mass we had never mingled among, and it was with great difficulty that a foot hold could be retained. From the Capitol to the Treasury building where the main fireworks display was made, which is a distance of one and a half miles down Pennsylvania avenue, a den-e crowd of men, women and chi'd ren, tilleifto packed suffocation the broad thoroughfare. Leaving Washington at 5J o'clock Saturday evening we arrived at Rldg way Sunday evening at about 0 o'clock. Quite a change, commencing at Harrisburg was noticed in the as pect of Nature. While at Washing ton the weather was fine, and the snow nearly all vanished, .we were now confronted with snow from eigh teen Inches to two feet in depth. And as.Capt. Scheening.marched the com pany into town l.e took particular pains to march us through snow up to our waists. All agree that the trip to Washing ton was a great success. And that the hoys with Keystones on their caps took the cake there is no doubt. In all the crowds no mat ter where you looked the Pennsyl vania boys were there. We are in formed that our noble old state fur nished 7,000 men for tills holiday oc casiou. Asa closing thought, were the holiday to become a stern reality of grim war, we know that the old Keystone state would send 200,000 men to the front, who would he as willing now as those boys of twenty years ago were to uphold the dignity and honor of the grand old Commonwealth.

Ask your tndgbbor tbi mwq question TittiM - Obituary, Mrs. Clarissa Willard, relict of Wil liam Willard, departed this life at Willlamsport, Pa., at one o'clock, A. M., Feb. 10, 1881, at the age of 87 years, 9 months, 21 days Mrs. Clar!sa Willard was the daughter of Gad and Jerusha Lamb and was born In Springfield, Mass. April 2G,1703.She came with her fath er's family in 1790, and settled near Mansfield then in Northumberland county afterwards in Lycoming and now in Tioga,, they being the first settlers. The Indian title to that sec tion of Pennsylvania became ex tinct by purchase In Oct. 1784, but all that region was claimed to be a part of Connecticut and disputes arising from tliis mixed state of affairs were fre quently settled with the shotgun. The farm which they cleared up was surrounded by an unbroken wilder ness in which the bears, wolves, pan thers and Indians roamed at large and In force, and whoso prowling and howling visits were of daily occur rence. Accustomed during herinrancy to these surroundings she developed more than ordinary masculine cour age. No sudden emergency unnerved her and she shrank from no necessary danger or difficulty. Their isolated situation ' compelled the family to draw largely'upou hotne talent and she thus acquired a variety of attain ments that would perhaps astonish some more modem maidens. She thoroughly understood cookery as practiced among the white settlers and also the preparation of many dishes peculiar to their Indian neigh bors; she wis well posted in the rais ing and rotation of farm crops, as well as garden products and fruits; she thoroughly understood the care of live stock, and excelled In horseman ship; she was an adept at spinning and weaving arid for years she took the raw wool from the sheep and the flax from the field and by her en ergy and skill carried them through the various processes until they were transformed into all manner of under and outer wear for herself and family. During the war of 1812 she made a greut deal of clothing for the army besides spinning large quantities of yam which her aged and infirm father learned to knit into socks for the "boys in blue" .She could tan a deer skin to perfection and make it up into gJoves, moccasins and slipper-;, and the writer has seen more limn one creditable specimen of her cobbling in heavier leather. Besides these and various other accomplishments which nowadays are not considered orna mental she became proficient in fancy needle work, painting and music, and her education, though confined to her mother tongue, whs more general and thorough than was usual in those times, covering a wide scope of Eng lish literature. To the last she was a great reader and kept herself ac quainted with all the important politi cal and other movements of the day. and aided by a very retentive memory she was good a ithority in regard to public occurences during the lust seventy-five years, and her letters in cluding those of the last year show a refined education, a brevity and di rectness of expression, and a clear com prehension of the exact force of each word, rarely to be found In combi nation with so many useful and com mon place attainments. On Dec. 31, 1817, nlie was married to William Willard, Esq., of Tioga.whose family came from Lenox, Mass., with whom she lived 23 years having ten children, of whom five only survive her. In 183!) the family moved from Tioga to Willianisport, where her husband died Oct. 10, 1813 leaving a large estate principally In Tioga Co. but in such confusion that the whole of it became scattered to the four winds Eight of her children were then living and only the oldest one was able to provide for himself. With the bravery of a Spartan and the devotion only to be found In a loving mother she undertook the task of keeping her family together and giving them a fair education. During a season of great privation she furnished her young family with the necessaries of life by the sale of little useful articles and toys which her early training en abled her to make out of nothing and even her most intimate friends were astonished to see so much determina tion, skill and ingenuity when they expected to find only feminine frailty. With such a mot her success was cer tain and she lived to see every one of her children decently educated and occupying positionsof trust equal to the more favored. She died a Christ ian at the ripe old age of 88 and could say with St. Paul "I have fought a good tight."

In Memorlum of May Barrett "Tl a Wink! of an eye, 'tis tin draught of a brcttth, From the blossom of health to the stillness of death." A few brief weeks since May, with a number of other little girls, of about her own age, celebrated the eleventh birth-day of their playmate, Belle Hartly, at the house of Bell's father, Dr. Hartley. Fun and frolic ran riot, while many a laugh rang nut, that happy afternoon, as they frisked about In their Innocent glee. Little they thought that the death angel hovered so near one of their number. May complained of a slight head ache in the evening, ami went home sick. M easels were soon developed. She had apparently passed successfully through the disease when she suffered I a relapse and decline which culminated in her death on Sabbath eve the 27th ult. Her funeral was at 10 o'clock on Tuesday the 1st Inst, in the Episcopal Church. She was borne from her home In a beautiful casket richly lined with beautiful flowers, the tribute of kind and loving friends. The church was filled witli the sympathetic friends who had gathered to pay their last respects to all that was mortal of poor little May. , Rev. Hugh Miller, of Emporium, conducted t he services and delivered an excellent address. He spoke of the "wonderful mysteries of death," of Christ who first un barred the gates of the tomb and who threw a halo of light o'er its similes. In grnpic words he pictured the resur rection morn when "the sea should give up its dead" and those that are buried come forth and this "mortal put on immortality" in response to the words of our savior "I am the Resur rection." As the procession filled past us.down the aisle of the church, we were struck witli the beauty or the floral cross and Calla lilly, which lay upon the casket and thought 'tis an emblem of the Immortal flower, now blooming In the garden of Paradise. We had often, In Sabbath school, looked with pleasure upon the class of eight little girls, all neorly of an age, and now, one Is not, for God took her. A vacant snot in the heart of teacher and class-mates and a desolate home has she left; but truly may she sing now, "And I among the Angels shine." TO THE MEMORY OK MAY.

Jtoxt morning the boys were astir, After a long and tiresome ride, And formed In line of inarch, On the Potomac sunny side. We marched straight to the Capitol, Where thousands stood to gaze. Where stood the famous Oartleld, Escorted there by Hayes. The decoration of the houses, Was splendid to behold. But the beauty of the fireworks, I think, never can be told.
