[Entered at the Postollice, Alexandria, Virginia, as second-class maller. J Mexico's White House President Diaz has tnovtd his official resi? dence out to (bo ca-.tle of ChapultepeC' which becomes once more, for the first time since the unlucky Maximiliau and his charruicg wife lived there, the "white house'' of Mexico. Cbapultepec h one of the loveliest spots imaginable, tsccurdiug to the Ooiaba lice. It Is unique in itself, as well as iu its name, ''the hill o! the grasshopper." Moultzama made biii summer house hero, and au underground passage still in exist? ence was made by bis directiou to a point in the valley below, so that the Aztec chieftain could go acd come as he pleased. Under tbe old cypress trees in the park the con? queror Cortez pitched his tent after the cele? brated "Noche Triste," or night of sorrow, when the Aztecs fell upon the Spaniards and massacred ibem. Here Maximilian and the unfortunate Carlotta made love as they promenaded the magnificent murnle terraces, which were built by order of tut- Austrian grand duke. Here the American army fougbt a bloody but decisive battle?one which has made tbe queer word Chapuliepec familiar to Ameri? can ears. One might rdale numberless his? torical incideuts connected with the epot, which abounds in memories, if space per? mit ted, but tbe place itself demands some description. Imagine a , park of 1.00U acres covered I with a denss urowth ot cypres?, many of tbe treee 500 or 000 years old. The gray Span? ish moss, festooned from limb to limb, adds to tho picturesqueness of the scene. In the center of this park, which is surrounded by massive walls on three Bides, tbe old eque duct forming a barrier on tbe fi urtb, rises a precipitous mound, if such a term will ex? press tbe idea. This mound is composed principally of rook, and is probably 200 feet in height. There is but one road to the top, the summit being inaccessible except by this single ronte. Upon the very apex stand? the castie, completely covering the space so that no matter from which direction you look there is a sheer descent of nearly one hundred feet. The castle was built in sections, and presents no singular feature of architecture except a peculiar double staircase that seems to have no supports. When Maxmilan first saw tho staircase he remarked to the architect that be would not trust his weight upon it, whereupon the designer, wiih his majesty's permission, brought a regiment of soldiers and marched them up and down tbe stair? way ten abreast, thus demonstrating its strength. The staircase is the only one of its kind in existence, and is built of white marble and brass. The terraces at Cbapultepec are one of the sights of Mexico. They are floored with white marble, with brass balustrades, and lighted by electricity. Tbo upper terrace extends the entire distance around the cas? tle and is 24 fee", broad. Lovely little flower gardens are located at frequent intervals, and here ate blooming geraniums, fuchsias, heliotrope and mignonette, making the air neb with perfume and adding to the bright? ness of tbe ecene. The furnishing of the castle for the recep? tion of President Diaz has been very elabor ate. Tbe private apartments are in tbo northwestern wing. Eich room is frescoed appropriately. Tbe chess room has a chess room in the centre of tbe ceiling with tbe Dishops, kings and queens in a merry dance about it, the pawns furnishing appropriate music from the four corners of the room. The private reception parlor of the Presi? dent's wife is "done up" in pink silk, with plush and brocade hangings to match. Every wall in the entire suit of rooms is covered with silk brocade instead of paper. The bed room occupied by the President and his wife was decorated and furnished at an expense of $30,000. The dining room has a seating capacity that is. limited to thirty persons. The magnificent solid silver that ouce belonged to the Emperor Maxmi??u is to be used, but the china and glassware ar?- not in keeping with the royal magnifi c-nc- of the silver ; ODe of the soup tureen? r- qui:es four men to carry it when filled. Piesident Dioz is greatiy loved by his fol? lowers, and he will doubtless make the cas ile of Ch .pultepeo quite as brilliant as it was iu tue days when tbe Austrian and Em preea Carlotta drove their eight gray horses and golden state chariot up the bill, and made the castle ring from alcove to gallery, from garrison to the entrance gates, with gayety. lime. Diaz is a most brilliant woman, aud can entertain royalty should she take the notion. All Mexico has its eyes upon her, and it remains with her to add immeasurably to the gayeties of tbe capital. Thanksgiving Offerings. On Thanksgiving Day. November 2Sth, 3899, the ladies in charge of the Alexandria Infirmary will bo in attendance at tho Infirmary daring the d;iy from 9 a. m. to 9 p. m. to receive the friends of the institution and such donations as they may bring or may be sont. We hope it will be remembered that on this, tho annual donation day of the Infirmary, sup? plies for the year in table and bed linen, blankets and othor household articles, groceries and com? forts of ovory kind, such as our sick need, and can only thus obtain, are looked for and hitherto have been received. In fsct, the support of the insti:ution for the remaining weeks of the year has always been, and is now, depeudent on tho amount of money and other supplies sent on the Thanksgiving donation day. We ask much from the rich; Romething,more or less, from all, and that every merchant of our city will remember tho various needs of such an insti tion and will spire us something from his stock. We ask also an interest and porsonal attendance from the ministers of the churches, the trustees of tho Alexandria Infirmary, the Ministering Children's League and the varions societies which are so earnestly laboring for these, the sick and suffering poor of our city.
