.WASHINGTON LETTER. U
: ! From oar rrgnUr L'armpondMit.) ;
Wahhwoton. Jan. 10. 1861. .
The ceremonial of New Year's rec
tione at the Execu tire Mansion has al way
been a conspicuous feature of Waabinn
ton aoeial and political life. Oeorp
Washington first inaugurated them wh
the presidential reeidence was located it
New York City, and in those days th?
were called "leTeea." a name that is ttiil
gWen to tbem in some circles. But t
receptions of the present day are rerj
different affairs from those of tbeearlt
period of our National hUtory. Tty
"Royal Airs" which came down frort
European courts have gradually dissp
peared. In Washington's time tbe strict
est rules of social etiquet and decorui
prevailed. No motley crowd coald a
proach the powdered and bewigged pres
ence. The President of the United Statet
was an august personage. Bis reoeptions.
were not for tbe vulgar. None came wb
had not the right to come by official sta
tion, or who were not entitled to special
privileges by reason of established merit
and fcharacter; - and one could no more
venture into the presence of Georee and
Martha Washington on that day., in any
oiner man mil cross, than one could now
In plain clothee obtain an audience with
the Queen of England.
'But these affairs have become' thor
oughly Auiericonized, beginning vfith the
time of Ueneral Jackson, who, to empba
sixo his Democracy, served a great cheese
in me mat room or tbe White House on
New Year's dar. frarments of- which
wera tramnled unnn thn floor tn tha rain
of t lie carpet and disgust of those aristo
crats? who dislike "the rabble." And in
thosa days, tool there was cider' in the
cellar. In our day "citizens generally"
are admitted to the White House, and
one can not only see prominent business
men and society leaders from all parts of
the country, biit side by side with them,
and sandwiched in among them, are the
colored men who open the doors at the
Departments, and the still humbler class
of persons who attend the stalls at tbe
market. Tbe threadbare and tattered
waterproof of the laboring women brush
es roughly against the silk of the modern
belle. No distinctions are made at the
President's door. The only discrimina
tion as to incomers within the people's
hours is that which prevails in borne-cars
"Drunk and disorderly .not admitted."
It is doubful if the founders of ourgoc
ernment, who still clung to. iunie of.. the
ceremonies and dignities of aristocratic
MroJEk. eTer contemplated establishing
such il thorough Democracy as our
Am?f,c4 public has come to be. ? -

nent feature in the social ' life of Wash

occasions, is made conspicuous by its tin
sel and flummery. The showy uniforms
of foieign courts parade the parlors of
the White House with as much ostenU'
tion as mav be seen m the - official pres
ence of Kaiser William or the Czar of
Itussia. Yet all these representatives of
monarchy and aristocracy regard Ame
ca aB a plebeian government, and rack
the ministry to this country as a mission
of the third or fourth class. The Brit jih
minister at Paris receives a salary of
$50,000; at Vienna, $40,000; at Constanti
nople $40,000; at St. Petersburg. $30.
000; at Berlin. $33,000; at Jfafein, $30,000;
at Madrid even, $27,080; While at Wash
ington Sir Edward Tnornton is obliged to
live on $23,000. In point of grade, the
Europeans rank Washington practically
with the missions to Braal, to Japan, to
the Hague, and to Lisbon-. j t i

A. spirit of earnestness, and work is
manifested in Congress since ' the recess
and business has begun, to more, though
there is not yet a full attendance. Tlie
appropriatiod bills are Ijeiiig pirtthrodgli,
the army bill having been passed by, the
House on the first day, of reassembling,
with only seven negative Votes. The
apportionment billtoas-been introduced
and if the present- temper continues the
extra session may be avoided after ; all.
The fate of the refunding: measure is
exciting some concern at present l and
fears are entertained that Mr. Fwnando
Wood's bill may fail tp become a; law.
Mr. Wood is ill and action o thehiU is
awaiting his recovery It would seem
that all apprehensionsfof the failure of

Treasury Department is quietly thrawing
cold water upon it. At. .the time -Congress

The funeral of. Maggie was postponed

A Tewn oh this Anxious Scut, ;
A verv singular trouble has overtaken
the producers (if salt iti Cheshire county,
England. It seems that, for some time
past, instead of digging out the rock
salt from tho mines, the salt men have
allowed large quantities of fresh water
to run Into the pits, and when it became
brine have pumped it out and crystal
lized if, This was in one way a dan
gerous operation, as the ground under
neath the town of Korwick was honey
combed with mines, and the water grad:
ually sapped away the foundations.
However, the . process was a slow one,
and it would have been years before it
produced bad results. ' But a few weeks
ago, a tall and heavy chimney fell to the
croundwith a sufficient iar to crack
open a cap in the brook that supplied
the mines with water, and ' into this
opening the water , flowed until the
mines were wholly filled,. Tbe fear is.
and it ia well founded, that, aathe water
