EXPENSES OF CONGRESS.
According to Mr. Parton, or as near as
he can ascertain, the cost of a session ol
Congress is full $4,UUU,UUU, if not more ;
or taking the session at twenty days per
month, for six mouths, more thuu $33,
000 per day. The chaplaius prayer,
which is about one minute long, consumes
$138 worth of time every morning. Th«
mere list of. contingent expenses of the
House fills a volume of *220 pages with its
mass of charges : such as portemounaies,
more than lUO penknives at $3 each, ink
stands, pocketscissors, hair brushes, tobac
co, cotton, staylaccs, newspapers, aud sta
tionery by the mountain. The bill of the
Sergeant-at-Arms for conveying the corpse
of a member from Washington to Easton,
Pa. was $2,144. It cost the nation $18,
000 to publish in a volume of 002 pages,
the addresses of condolence called forth by
the assassination of Mr. Lincolu—scarce
ten pages of it worth preserving. In 1804
a joint resolution ordered that 50,000 co
pies of tho 44 Army Register of Volun
teers" be printed for sale, at oust, in eight
volumes. A little experience for the de
mand of the work, however, led to a re
duction of the order to 1000 copies Those
who have held the office of public printer,
are of the opinion that $500,000 a year
are wasted at the public printing office.
A member of Congress from Oregon, reach
es Washington by steam in eleven days,
and yet he draws fifteen times as much
mileage money as Henry Clay did in the
old days for six week's horseback riding
from his home in Kentucky.
" Tell the people of New Hampshire,"
said Grant to Dawes, 44 that during my
administration there shall be no ascending
scale of public expenditures, but whenev
er and wherever the closest scrutiny shall
disclose the possibility of cutting olf a «bil
iar, it shall he done." Whew !—Lawrence
Sentinel.
Gold and Business.— The trade is re
covering from the paralysis brought on by
the decline in gold, and most of the large
houses are now quite busy. Plenty of
Southern buyers are on hand, and the
Western men begin to flock in pretty fast.
There is not much likelihood of a really
active spring trade, but it will probably
bo better than was expected when the gold
crash came. Stewart and Clafli
ing out an immense quantity of good m dai
ly, but I doubt if they are tmrkiug money.
There has been a great decline in prices
and most of the sales now made afford no
profit, while in many c ses, ns I am in
formed by wholesale men, goods are sold
much below the prices at which they can
be replaced. This means, of course, that
when the new stock comes in prices will
be higher.
atively quiet, the lute whirlwind having
blown over, and the bulls and bea
engaged in taking breath for another
scrimmage. The excitement during tin
latter part of last week was quite as 13e«l
lamish and bewildering as that witnessed
when gold was kiting above 200, but it
has subsided, temporarily at least, and a
stranger might go into a Gold Boom now
without imagining himse'f in a lunatic
asylum. The specie payment spurt, star
ted some ten days ago by a few enterpris
ing saloon-keepers, is fast exhausting it
self and may not hold out much longer.
Fisk still keeps it going at his Opera
House—on rather a email seale though—
and at some other places small silver is
still given out in change, but unless gold
falls to par, or near it this specie payment
movement won't last.—A r . Y. Cor. of the

interest at six per cent, authorized as high
as ten per ccut. to be charged, provided
an agreement to that effect be made in
writing. The Baltimore Sun thinks that
the bill would have stood a better chance
of success had it contained a provision
that for money lent on mortgage or other
real estate security not more than six per
cent, shall he received. The opposition
was mainly from the country member*

Cost of Conokkshmkn.— A full Senates
consists of seveuty-four momburs, and
their united expenses, including compensa
tion, mileage, officers, and "contingen
cies," amount to $007,258 or $8,882 lor
each member. The House, when all the
States are fully represented, including the
delegates from the Territories, numbers
201 members, whose expenses similar to
the above foot up $1,908,013, which gives
$7,584 to each. In both cases the amounts
are exclusive of the burdens entailed upon
the country by the franking abuse, the
printing of worthless documents, the inter
est on the cost of the gorgeous edifice which
was built for the accommodation of Con
gressmen, and various other items which
are "too numerous to mention," as well as
some that do not expose themselves to the
vulgar gaze.
