Interment at the ol I Catholic Cemelery, WASHINGTON LETTER. From our Special Correspondents Washington, D. C,, Oct. 16,1878. It Is not unlikely that other States will have the' Legislature divided, as io party, some what as that of Maine is. There will be a majority against the Republicans, but larger numbers of Republicans tha n of any other single party. In Maine there is no U. S. Senator to elect tins year, but In other States, and perhaps In some of the class rpoken of above, the election of a Senator will be the most Important business of the session. Wisconsin Is such a State. No Democrat should eDter Into any arrange ment which would permit the re-election of Howe. Illinois Is another such State. No bargain should be made involving the re turn of Oglesby. Kansas Is another. A great many concessions might prorerly be made to keep Ingalls away from the Senate. Ia New York the same state of things may exist. In these and similar cases, In which perhaps, the Democrats will be powerless If acting alone, I trust they will, In exer cising their discretion, so vote as to Improve the representation of their States In the Senate; The one paramount duty of Demo crats everywhere Is to drive sectionalism out of all places of power. Howe, Oglesby, Ingalls and Conkling, according to their several capacities, are enemies to the restor ation of good feeling among the people and to a permanent and peaceful Union of the 8tates. The early Republican rejoicing over the result of elections hold a week ago of course was in part made up from grati fication at being saved from total annihila tion. It eannet, In the lace of what accomplished, be accounted for in any other way. It is to be regretted that they ceeded In carrying the two Cincinnati dis tricts. Among all classes I find their succrs there attributed to the speech delivered by Secretary Schurz, at the Importunate and repeated requests of Mr. Hayes. The dis tricts are fairly Democratic, but have a large German population which la and always has been susceptible to the blandish ments of the eloquent Secretary. The gen eral result of the elections were very dam aging to the Republicans, and cannot but give new courage to Democrats everywhere. The near approach of the time lor Con gress to afsemble draw, here many having business of a public nature, and specula tion Is rife as to the measure to come before the next session conspicuously. The de pressed condition of business naturally em phasises the demand for Legislation, xot Incompatible with the national welfare that shall give an Impetus to trade. Among these objects Is a competing line sf railroad to the Pacific Ocean, and it Is astonishing bow the present heartless monopoly has consolidated the friends of free commerce In behalf of the plan proposed by the Texas and Pacific railroad company, for construct ing their line through to San Delgo. without the appropriation of a dollar in money or was suc acre of laDd, but simply with the guar antee ot Interest on a part of the construe t on bends. The merchants of the north are moving In the matter, and In a future letter! will give you the details of the plan and show what the Government Is asked to do. Other Internal Improvements will also receive a good degree of attention. Mr. and Mrs. Hayes go to-moirow to the Fair at Winchester, Vs. He will bare a cordial reception. The place be holds, no matter If he came by It Irregularly, Isa very hlgb one, and the Virginians will not let pass the opportunity to do honor to it. Besides, they aro a hospitable people and receive all strangers and travelers graciously In September and October the roving Washingtonian comes to bis own homes, no matter where he may be, for uo where can he fled more than here of the things that go lo make life pleasant population are growing rapidly, despite a temporary condition of Dfstilct finances which has made taxation a menace to the property holder. The natural advantages of Washington an Our wealth and are never more strikingly ap parent than at, this season of the year, and the (act that it i# the capital of a great and growing country, must sometime make it not only the home of a large resident popu lation, but the resort of numberless people from all parts of the world.

THE WILMINGTON DRIVING PARK ABSOOI* ATION—A BRIGHT AFTERNOON'S SPORT —WHAT TROTTERS AND PACBRS DID WITH THEIB HEELS YESTERDAY. Yesterday, an autumn day, as bright and beautiful as ever reigned in mid-October, was a gala event at Scheutzen Park and ushered In the first part of the season of racing to be indulged in at the initial semi annual meeting of the Wilmington Driving Park Association. The weather could have been more propitious to the sport, and was of that half clear half hazy nature per. culler to early Indian summer, A scene of much animation presented Itself through the park early In the afternoon, aDd almost on every side the trees were decked in autumnal hues that vied with the not gay concep tion of a Turner or a Claude Lorraine. The as good a condition as Is pos sible for one that is four cornered and up hill in some parts to be, and was just a trifle duety. By this time the racing commence the number of persons present would not have exceeded tbieo hundred fifty, enough came in afterwards to Bwell It per haps a hundred more. The races comprise i the day's sport—the first was the Wagon, race, the second that open to horses of the 2 50 class, and the third confined to whose records were not Jess than 2.37. is usually the case at this place much •jockylng" was Indulged in. The bad management of inexperienced directors was very plain in almost everything, and Mr. Kichtenberger, the Secretary of the Asso ciation, was positively boorish and unac commodating. The reporter's accommo dations were unusually bad, and the press representatives were put to much incon venience. it track was In but pacers As The judges were John Ross, (starter) George Elkicgton, and Conly Jenkins. THE R*AD WAGON RACK. It was understood that the races were to commence at 2 o'clock, but they were not called till 2>£. 3 he first was the road .wagon race for which eight horses were entered. ODly three, however, took part, and after much difficulty they got away with the following starters: Gipsy Qu.en, Lou Moulton and Bay Sam. Lou MoultoD had the pole, but did not keep It long, for Bay Sam passed her and took the lead, but was passed In turn by Glpiy Queen near the close of the first half-mile; this .position she held till the close of the heat: Time, 3.01 In the second heat, Gipsy Queen had the pole and got away nicely for awhile when Sam drew up on her and succeeded in going by her running, and come in ahead with Lou Moulton distanced. Sam was put hack to the second place for running while pass ing Gipsy Queen, which gave her two beats and decided the race. Time, 3.01)4, SECOND RACE. The race for horses of the 2.50 class was next, and at the pool Lyman sold against the field. It was started with Bohemian Girl at the pole, and only four starters out of eight that had beeu entered. The bay mare Lizzie took the lead jnst at the end of the starting quarter, and along on the third quarter of the first half she was passed by Lyman, while Frank drew up and it became a close contest for the second position, which be at length secured and pressed up to within two lengths and a-half of Lyman, who won the heat i> 2.45. Bohemias Girl was distanced owing to the fact that she had cast a shoe and on these grounds was per mitted to trot again. In the second heat Lyman had the pole, but was cut out by Lizzie, but she was compel led to yield toe position back again on the home stretch of the first half. Oeming down the home stretch at the closing of the heat much Interest was created by the con test of Lizzie and Frank, the latter haviDg drawn up and pressed her closely clear down to the judges' stand, losing by about half a length. LymaD won the heat In 2.48. Bohemian Girl was withdrawn alter the second heat. The third heat was gotten off with Lyman leading and Lizzie pressing him closely, but she broke on the first quarter aud Frank passed. He also broke and Lizzie went ahead and kept there until coming down the home stretch, when he again passed her with Lyman leading easily winning in 2.49. THE PACING RACE. The last race was for the 2.37 class of pacers. It was taken part in by A. R.Ladd's black mare, Low B.; H. Deer's bay gi'diug, Billy, and W. Week's black mare, Maggie W. H. Start's b. g. Bay Jim, and J. Ash ton's br. g., David C., were entered but did not start. Billy was the favorite at the pool. The first heat was started with Low B. a' the pole. She kept the lead well around with Billy pressing her on the first half mile, but hebiuke and went behind, while Maggie came up and nearly passed, hut fell back. Billy again gained, and after a stiff effort passed Maggie, and coming down the home stretch overhauled Low and forged ahead by half a length, winning the heat In 3.02. In the second heat Billy had the lead at starting, but was passed right away by Low while Maggie fell rapidly behind. Billy se cured the lead again, hut he was passed by Low on the starting quarter In the last half mile. She came In four lengths ahead In 3.50, with Maggie, distanced. In the third heat the "jockeying menced, the Idea appearing to wait for Maggie who wag far behind, aud prevent her from being distanced so she could get the third monty. On the first half-mile Billy who was ahead on the first round waited for Low to pats him, aud coming down the home stretch Low came down to a gait that was only a little faster than a walk, while Billy went by and won in 2.50. Maggie wes again flogged and the judges decided that It was no heat. Before the fourth heat was starts 1, Mr. Ross, the starting judge, called Billy up In front of the stand and made th« driver va cate while he substituted another one in his place.

"I have colcluded," he writes, object to the use of my name In connection with that nomination, and will endeavor for the sake of principle, to bear with pa tience, the attack of the blatant worshipj pers of hard money, believing that as our father* successfully withstood the 'Divine right of KlDgs' the time may yet beat hand when tbe'r descendants may in a like man ner withstand the equally absurd dogma of the " Divine right ot Gold."

Yesterday morning about 7 o'clock a fine sight could be seen from the hill on the northwestern part of the city. All the low land between the Delaware river and the Christiana, as far as the neighboring woods would allow the eye to see, was covered with a dense fog or vapor so thick that It, had all the appearances of water, the fog rose only about 12 feet, so shat all the. houses and trees appeared like boats of every description sailing in the water, the Bone Mill ti,ere was a schosner which appeared half hidden as only about half its masts were visible.
