Our Washington Correspondence. Reform in City Government—Ram "Stonewall" —Indian Summer, &c., &c. WASHINGTON, Nov. 25th, 1865. I referred. In my last, to the fact that the Mayor and City Councils bad been iodieted by the U. 8. Grand Jury for tbo commis sion of an unmitigated ' nuisance la the past and present condition of tho filthy ditch known as the Washington City Canal a term quite errouoonsly appliod, and alto gether teo roe poo table for the mere sower which, for less than ono-elgbtb of its ser pentine course through the city, affords navigation to flatboats. From the move ment thus inaugurated, a vastly beooflctal result Is confidently expected, Id the muni cipal affairs of this, the very worst gov erned lty to tbo whole country.' Already the strongest feeling in favor of. tbo abol ishment of the chartorod prerogatives of the Mayor and City Councils, is manifostod among' the pooplo . generally, aud the most influential news organs favor the olao. wbiob is, to memorialise Congress to revoke the charter of. the eity In so far as it Incor porates tho two branches of the city govern ment and the Mayor, and plsoo tno whole tatronoge, (which, wan tbo disbursements, ias apparently occupied all the time and exhausted the business capacities of the old city officials.) with full powor and con trol, In the bands of Commissioners, to . bo appointed by the rrosid-nt, thus legislating out of "public functional" position a set of moo either shamefully incspablo or both corrupt and Inefficient. Of this iDtffioloncy and squandering of aionoy loviod as toxos, and the constant and standing Intuit, not only to tho citizens of Washington, but to all wbe, for business or enjoyment, come to the metropolis, found in tbo present san itary condition of the District, wbiob invites diseaso and pestilential epidemics aud con tagions, Congress is uot ignorant, and will, wboo stops aro taken by too inhabitants to remedy the evil, promptly legislate to tbat end. The groat and crowing interests of this city, now, for., tba first, time, beginning to fool tho throb of commercial and finan cial life and expanding trade, which Las, by the close of tbo war, received a quickoning impetus, heretofore confined to otbor cities, and every consideration relating to the pros perity of the this capital of a great and pow erful Republic, domaud the application of this strong remedy, which h believed io be tbo only effectual one where official trickery has been reduced to a most lucra tive science, Dotting great profits on small investments of talent; and no cash capital. rne ueoet turn "etonewaii, or which so much has been written, and which has been so muon droadod, especially by the eood pooplo of Gotham, whose city, as well as the oommorco of the werld, was to bavo beoo annihilated by this . monster, has at last ar rived, and, although her debut was not of tne formidably warlike character borotofore expected, a great deal of interest is natural ly excited by ber coming. Tbo 'Stone wall was ruo Into Havana by her valiant commandor, Page, a renegsdo from the U. 8. N., who endeavored to exact a promise from tbe Captain General of Cuba that, as a condition precedent to ber surrender to the Spanish authorities, she should never be surrendered to the United Ktatos Govern ment. But tbls tbo wily old offioial evaded, aod ntda Kmptlsg; offer of 816,000, with which to pay off tbelialf-oaked and money- hungry crew, who were to bare bordod tbe spoils of prises and ships of ear merchant marine, t.sDe never' captured prize,) which offer was accepted, and tbe vessel accord- iDgiT'earroooeoM. xna money aa re funded by tbo 'United Stales Government after a most Inteteatiaw and satisfaetorv diplomatic correspondence between tbe two governments, without even "Br your leave, sir," to Louis Napoleon, too. litUa modern Casiar, In whose port end waters , she was surreptitiously built, armed and manned for sea, probably as one of the items of tbo Auatrie-l) ranoo Mexican programme. Taken all in all, tbo "Stonewall" is one of tbo most finished navsl war-engines which tbo Rebellion has nroduerd. and. In svmmetrv of outlino, equals many of our firtl-class clipper s tea mors. , . She lies at oroscnt In tho l'ototnao, awaiting tbe riso of tho tiac to nnabio her to run up to tbo Navy Yard.

Tho other turret contains two 70-poundors of Identical eon strnction, which are beautiful specimens of orananco. nor rig is mat or a luii riggod brig, and ber steam propolliug power oou- eists of two powerful engines, two screws, and ' rudders, thus giving herstorn tbe pe culiar appearauco of a double ship. With these appliances for destructive work in combat,sbo has a prow or beak running out uouer wator, at so angle trom tne upper part of tbo bow of 30, probably twenty foot, boavily pointed with stool, which, with tbo momentum received by hor heavy enginos, must piorco through any obstacle ornosod to it. Moving at ouly the modorate rate of six knots wbilo oa bor up-trip ia tbe Ches apeake, she collided with a lorco schooner at anchor, which swung across ber bows.and crushed nearly through her with bor pon derous snout.

Tbe weather, for over two weeks, has been most delightful, rivaling tbe beauties of Italy's charming skies, producing a lialf-ploasont, balf-sad, wlno-like effoct upon Iho senses, and characterized " by the soft tints of green and gold, which, with the soft and gontly flowing drapery of purple and lilao which bangs gracefully over and around tbo distant horizon, contribute to make this tbe most enjoyable season of Ibo year. This season, tho form known ' as "Indian Summer" has boon unusually pro tractod, and, evon now, tbo almost tropical sun of tbo month of usual hoary frosts and biting eold.prepares bis golden crave in the broad and placid waters of tbo '-River of Swans, gilding the noble dome of tbe Cap itol and the graooful figure of the Goddoss of Liberty, with bis departing rays. In this geoial month may bo traced a benofioent blossing and interposition of roeroy by Him "who tempers tbe wind to tbo shorn Iamb,' and for wbiob tbo suffering poor, wbo are more numorous than over bofore, should raise their hearts and voices In reverential acknowledgment. ,, Congress will soon again convene, and tbe oomioc session promisos, from tbe matters of national and vital intereit and importance io come botoro K. rne most intonsoiy in teresting questions, Involving tbe most vital intorosts to whole Stales, will bo adjusted and the final status of tboso recently in re bellion permanently fixed, or ot least their eourse marked ont, and tbelr erring ways mado straight to tbem, and the way of re demption made plain. 8oddoD, Ex Socrotorv Robot War Offioe. and others of minor noto, I am informed, have just beon paroled by tho President.

Tbe falliDg off Is principally in somo of tbe Nortborn Cpontios. Tbe largest vole eiveo was on Attorney General, 419570. West's majority ovor Wilson is 31,709. Tbe Union majority is less than It was in 1864, thus showing ah apparent gain for tbe oi dieant Democratic party, cut, instead or a Democratic gain, there Is a positive loss, as will appear by a comparison of the two votes : Union Vote.

DairtMO Fihox Posts. In the ordi nary way of digging with the Bpade.Clling in and tramping, much time is consumed, a great deal of hard labor performed, and it is very difficult to get tbe post solid and firm. To obviate these three diffi culties, pursue the following method: In the place where your poets ere to be set, make a hole with tbe crowbar, work ing it backward to widen the hole.msking it ten or fifteen inches deepMThen sharp en the post, and drive with an iron maul another foot, whioh leaves the post very firm in tbe ground. It is more conven ient to- make use of a team and wagon, from which a mBn can stand and drive them, driving from post to post. Help aad time can thus be saved. Touching Incident—The Death Bridal. "Hore was tbo scene of tbe death bridal," said Herman, as tbev oassod a little, sln. dod church yard, high among the mount ains.

Marguoritto, having flnlshod ber booso bold labors, came to tbo door with hor knit ting; but It was not until the last gloam of sunset bad faded from tbo sky tbat Herman sold! "-Marguoritte, will you toll us about tbe death bridal?" "Poor Allnet" said tbo, sighing) "sho was so young and so fair; wo had been frlonds from the tirao wo could walk or spoak. Claud was hor couslo; but no one knew bow well be loved bor, until sho was gone, al though bo had always been fond of her; but sho was tbe favorite of tbo whole carish. When Alino was about sixteen, she west to spona a yoar with some relatlobs In Geneva. "Claud had nevor told ber tbat be loved hor. He was poor, and many years would pass ootoro no could Win ber. . bon tne; woro both so younir. and perbaptl to fearo to try bis fate.

"Before tbe winter was gone, be died. Whoa be was dead, they found on bis boart a little case like thoso which pooplo carry charuis in; but it contained a lock of Alino's bair.and a flower she had given him tbe day she went away. We did not remove it, but laid it In the grave with bin. "In tbe summer Aline came borne. Ah, I shall never forgot how lovely sbe looked that day. Tbe joy of ber return, and our gladness at seeing ber again, bad given socb fifo and bloom to ber swoot faoe. We talked of one and another of our friends in the mountains, and of all she bad seen and done while away.but she never mentioned Claude. At last tbo ovocing began to fall; sbe grew restless; some of ner - frlonds eamo In, and among them Claude's sistor. Alino kissed ber. "Could not Claude come with you,af tor all those months!" said she.' . " Louise started and was silent; but One of tbe others said: "Did yon not know thai poor Claude Is doad?" My Aline! she uttered but one cry, so lODg ana outer teat it scorned bor life must go with it, and sbe roll as If dead.' , XI was long before we oould bring ber to herself, and through all tbat nicbt she Dov er spoke one word; but one faiotir.g fol lowed another until morning then she seemed to revive a little, but so wan, she lookod a moro wreck of what sbe bad boon but yesterday; and in ber eyes sbobe a strange sort of glittor,' liko sunlight reflect ing from ice, so cold and bright. At last she spoke ; "Marguerltte," sbe said, taking both my hands, "I saw Claude yesterday: do not Slort be told me he would have a death bridal, and tbon tboy can nevor part us moro. ".No ono parted you, dear," said I. "Abl tbeydid thoy did," sho answered;1 "tbey knew bow happy we would bo, and, they enviod us." , uWbor I asked, anxiously. Bbe lookod cautiously at me for a mo ment, and shook ber bead without speale ing. . "She says what Is true," said Motbor Ag nace, who bad come to help as none bor. "Thoreare malignant spirits who always try to sunder true hearts; if tbey take the life of one, tbey watch the other; aud that other most marry tbe dead in his gravo, or tbe spirits will cast a spell upon thorn, and tboy can never meet after death." ! "Margueritto," said poor Aline, "yon most go to tno prlost and briog bim. 1 must be married now, as soon as my wodding dross Is mado." j I went to Father Bernard, for sbe would not be satisfied. He said bor brain was turned by the shock, and sbo muBt be soothed and reasoned out of socb a strange fancy. He came to soo ber ; and, after he bad mado ber undorBtand;tbat bo weuld have her glvo np the idos, sbo began to plead for ber purpose so toucbiogly tbat at last bo gave way. "Poor soul," said he, as be went out, with tho (oars standing in bis eyos, "it's no barm and may give bor rest." Bo we arranged tblDgs for tbo coromony. I dressed , my poor friend for ber strange marriage, all in white, with a long voil, and tbe bridal orown of mvrtlo and white roses on, ber head, , She told Father Bernard what she weuld have bim do, with a quiet compo sure strapgely belied by ber restless,glittor ing eyes. tNq one then living bad seen a death bridal, tboueb some of the oldest per sons bad board of such rites being per formed long ago. Dot sbo seemod to know intuitively bow all should be done. We formed in procession at tbe bride's bouse, as is customary at weddings, end proceeded to the cburcb yard; there she stood at one side of tbe grave, and Father Bernard on tbe other. behad two bridal rings one sbo wore; tbe other sbe placed over the grave, and, kneeling down, she laid ber loft band on the ring. "The priest said a prayer; and those as sembled sang tbe marriago anthem; bur,Btill kneeling, as soon as our voices ceased, she uttered in a clear, solemn voice, ber mar riage vows; not In tba usual wards of our sorvico, but in language so earoesl.so full of pathos, tbat none of us could restrain our toars. Then rlsleg op, sbe gave tbe ring that had boon On the grave.to the pr!ost,who pot It on her bafd, taking off hor owo; tbey lifted tho head-stone from its place, and she pel ber ring benoatb It. Whon tbe ring was restored to its placo, she made me lake off bor bridal wreath; this sho bung over the name of Claudo, and slowly returned to bor home. Sbe soomod fooble and oxbausted, speak ing little during the day. Al night sbe cftllod mo: ' "Dear Margn6r!ite, be will come for me to night; ho bos promised."
