Special Correspondence oi the Hzx-ai: ■
Wa£HiX3T0X, D. C, Dee. A
The opening day of Congress was not or
special interest iu* either House- Senator
Blaine moved snJLDquiry into the su: jeet
of equal rights of rottn af rieoriane, and
Representative Wood sharply critieized
that portico of th* President's musage
which amumes that voters in tbe Soath
were intimidated at th* November elec
tron, He called attention to the feet that
there was intimidation by Govercmee
oftdaif — uncensritu tionui officials — in
New York City, and that Mr. Haves had
emitted to ennoemn them, Nothing was
done or proposed th* contemplated
investigation of the "cipher despatches.''
Ii seems to be understood that, nnlem the
radicals preepiate such investigation, the
Potter Commiite will, at an early dav,
derate the work. There is, at hereiefore
said, a disposition os both sidw to evade
the diacamion of disturbing questions until
later in tbe session.

THE LASH IS VIRGINIA
RicswoxB, Va., Dec. 2,1?TS.
Tbe beD rang, tbe cuter door of the Cfty
Jail was opened, and at twelve o'clock M
iu filed tixteea prisoners, the quota of tbe
Police Court ot Mondsy moruing Among
these were three colored we.met. two of
whom ran nimby up the steps leading to
the range of eella in which female prisoners
are confined. The third remained below it
the yard, with her arms akimbo, wistfully
eyeing a stout brows post about seven fee 5
m height and three feet in circumference'
This woman was Nancy Lynch, an old
offender, and the object ol her scrutiey was
tbs whipping post. N»ncy is a thorough
specimen of tbe most degraded Type of the
female negro thief and Tigrani. She is
black, medium sized, wi .h the fiat
thick lips, kinky hair and sem:-savage
presaios peculiar to a class of her
She is am old jail bird, and was seatenced
to receive twenty-five lashes to-day for
stealing iron from the Chesapeake and Ohio
Railroad Company. Ii was not her first
acquaintance with the terrible whipping
post, which, however, she seemed to regard
with deadly enmity.
"No thisf ere feit tbe halter draw
With good oprniox of the law. 1 '
Ad the other prisoners had been searched
and locked up, and an official in the yard
then called to an attendant, "Throw'
down that tickler;" whereupon a cowhide
shout half an inch in diam-.ter at the butt
and tapering down to a point was tossed
into his hand. Nancy looked at his instru
ment of torture and a perceptible shudder
passed through her frame. The official
then said, "Take dswn yostrclothe*, Nancv
and hug the widder." 'The poor criminal'
turned «n imploring Iwck and said, "tfus 1
take all off."
"Tea, and burry op. Ton know whs;
you have to do."
Nancy proceeded slowly to unbuttoe her
dress in front, and in a mom-at ehe was
stripped to tbe waist, her upper clothing
falling down over her hips and exposing to
tbs gaae of tbe few bystander* a rioter
black skin from the shoulder* to the waist
Her back was strongly marked with pre
vious stripes, and in a moment mor* she
had embraced tbe "widder." as ,be whip

On the opposite side of the post were iron
