If a gallery were kept of the interest

markable for attraction and talent. Mrs.
Stephen A. Douglas set unprovided wo
men a noblq example by accepting the
duties of. a Secretary here, when posi
tion and ease vanished in a month from
her home. Mrs. Elizabeth Akcrs ab

Through Fifteenth street daily pours a
throng of women old, young and mid

thousand. They wear an informal street
dress, but otherwise are quite as interest
ing and quite as well bred as the crowd
which pushes at the Academy doors at a
matinee. They form a recognized class
in Washington, with their separate tra
ditions, histories and romances, , on
which a whole tribe of dime novels might
any length of. time can fail to meet with
hints of interest, not by any means ex
ceptional, about those eligible working
women, llow they came to their places;
what the struggle for life or for pleasure
is with many of them; how they emerge
often from tie shrino of the Department
to more responsible social positions, is a
story that can be -told only , by those
who live among these women, and whose
lips must be reticent on the subject. But
Treasury gossip and Treasury jokes are

Washington Cor. Chicago Tribune.
A. rural friend caraQ.here the other
day and asked me ta show him throngh
the Patent Office.' We saw the yellow
buckskin breeches of Washington, his
tent poles, and his camp equipage, and
then his holster-cases,- embroidered by
his wife's hand. My aged friend, who
had recently lost his wife, watered at the
eyes when he saw Jkis last; for, no
doubt, he thought of ..nis own old sweet
heart, quilting away on the old-fashioned
quilting frame, the very coverlets which
now made him warm of; nights, while she
was lying 6ut iri 'the old graveyard.
These widowers' tears made Washington
and his wife rise up before me alive, and
I went over the name old museum with
as keen an interest for the hundredth as
for the first visit. We snw the jewel
hilted swords given to sailor and envoys,
long "since ' deceased, but wrpsted away
by the jealous republic; and the narrow
phpstpd coat which wrarmed the trtuint
body of Jackson on the day of New Or
leans hunir within the class-case in help
less appeal. So, through thousands of
patent models we kept our way, until at
last we reached the Land OHice, and the
communicative Commissioner took us
nil,; mo w uiuiv .uun. ...... , j
" Come here, Curtis ! he said; I want
vou to Dut on Bia Bull s holiday suit.
. An attendant stood upon a chair a
small, modesty smooth-faced monr-and
the Commissioner' passed up toiim out
of a box a bundle Of gear', made of buf
falo s horns , robe, lorelocks and mane,
and the man fitted the thing on his head.
Immediately he was metamorphosed to a
devil, witn a rowot norns reacning irom
his ears to his heels, and the thick, bushy
hair of the buffalo shook round his chops
and heart. . ,
"Meet that figure on tho field of tor
ture after the battle is done," said the
Commissioner; 'nnd you would think
Satan was waiting right by for your soul.
That was the favorite dress of Big Bull,
a Cheyenne Chief of gigantic size,, who
died in battle with the Pawnees, putting
his hands over his ears nnd rushing into
death, while his wife brained her two in
fants, and died fighting with him."
The Commissioner jhen showed 'us a
gala-dress of a brute Sioux brave, made
entirely of the cured skin of human
scalps, and. fringed .with tho long locks
of white females, it
"See here," he said, "this scalp has
an auburn thread running through it; by
the light it ihines like dark gold. This
scalp is flaxen, and issoft as a boy's.
1'lmae short one's are children's scalps.
And here is one with a suggestion of
gmv-an om woman s, mnj ew. .
'My' widower friend's - eyes were full
again, and a resisted "pucker" came to
his mouth. -i
There was the hair that had been the
pride of its wearer when she came to the
arms of some strong young pioneer
bridegroom, and laid it upon his breast
after the labor of the day. Children had
played with it, twining it around their
fingers, and beneath it had lain the years
of nousekeeping cares, the dreams of
competence and independence, the
yearning of the woman's prayer that the
Kingdom of God might come aud His
peace flow like a river. The gray strands
had creDt into it like the first gray lights
into the sky at evening, and the peace of
home and love winch passetn unucr
standing had shone from the failing eyes
beneath those changing tresses. She re
pined not, because the wealth and beauty
of their former times were reproduced
in her blooming girls, and then she felt a
realization that her years had not been
lived nnd tried in vain, but that, as a
frontiersman's wife, she had become one
of the pilgrim mothers of a Western
race. ; !.:. . 1
Then, in one moment, out of the
ground arise the painted shapes of dark
ness; the earth becomes a yell. Stricken
at the feet of some savage the bleeding
figure lies; bloody hands are twisted in
these hairs of gray ; the knife describes
the circle; the shining glory of the ma
tron's head dangles at the Indian's knee
among the fringe of his bloody shirt.
Hero it is in the Paten, Office, making
the widower's eyes water as he feels the
story, and then the Commissioner says:
"Have you seen Spotted Tail and
Swift Bear? They were here this morn
ing, and are a fine looking set of Chiefs."
" Yes," says the widower, still looking
at the old woman's scalp, " I heard that
they had been here."

Well, at last Dan died, and the boys in
testimony of their esteem and respect
for hhn, telegraphed to Mrs. Murphy to
know if she would like to have him em
balmed and sent home, when you know
the usual enstora was to dump a poor
devil like him into a shallow hole, and
then inform his friends what had become
of him. Mrs. Murphy jumped to the
conclusion that it would only cost two or
three dollars to embalm her dead hus
band, so she telegraphed "Yes." It was
at the "wake" that the bill arrived and
was presented to the widow. She uttered
a wild, sad wail that pierced every
heart. "Sivinty-foive dollars for stufliu'

How .Vr. Mnniren Ntlrretl the Wrath
of Ike Austrian Kuvey,
Washington Correspondence New York Sun.
A curious incident has leaked from
the State Department, a very leaky ves
sel in essentials, though so mysteriously
and solemnly reticent in small particu
lars. Shortly after a very objectionable
speech from the Hon. William Mungen,
of Ohio, on Cuban affairs, Baron Charles
Lederer, the Austrian Envoy Extraordi
nary and Minister Plenipotentiary, vis
ited the Secretary of State, with the
speech aforesaid in hand. The inter
view is thus narrated : The Barou called
the attention of Mr. Fish to it, and said
that he had como on behalf of his Gov
ernment to ask explanation from the
Government of tlie Lnited States.
"This," he snid, "is not tho mere pro
duction of your newspaper canaille, but
it come from a member of Congress, and
is published in tho Governmental organ
The Baron wished to know whether
Mr. Fish approved it, categorically or
Mr. Fish declared (and no doubt with
unusuat sincerity) that bo did not sub
scribe toauv Dart of it: and furthermore
was willing to concede that the speech
was an outrage andLMuncen a nuisance;
nay, he would even agree with tho Baroiv
that both the press ana uongress were
nuisances. But what could he do in the
premises? Mungen had abused him.
"Never mind dat." said the Baron
"T would not even mind it he abused me,
but it is my government he insults, and
UCll 1 1UUI lb UU1C, Ollimug ttio
" But Baron, he hag abused the British
Government, and the Russian, and the
Spanish, and the Lnited States Govern
"Yes; but I am not de keeper of the
honnevrot zese. but it is for the insult
to mv Emvereur I demand reparation
" Mv dear Baron." replied the Secre
tory. " I really cannot make this an in
ternational question. I deeply regret
i hut wo have no nower to Dunish this ex
asperating man. Our laws unfortunately
do not permit it. Look, be has abused
even our own President.
"Ware dat?" asked the Baron. "No,
ho call him eifted President; mean
genius, talent; flatter him, abuse every
bodv and all covernment's else."
"No! ejaculated Mr. Fish, "he meant
to insult the President; he perpetrated
an outrage; he told a falsehood when he
said the President was gifted."
"What," asked the puzzled Baron;
"he say what not trua when he call the
President gifted? Weill ma foil Zough
you and I, Monsieur Fish, know that he
is not very bright, you, his Ministere,
might have let him pass dat leetle com
pliment But if he abuse de President,
and you have to suffer dat, I have no
more to say. Good morning, Monsieur
Mr. Fish (very obsequiously)" Good
" But stop, Mr. le Secretaire, l on
want to knowwhat we do in Austria with
dis fellow you call Mungen?"
" What would you do, Barou?"
"We would put him in one dungeon,

A Remarkable Kecorameadatioa."
The San Franciwo Era gives a copy of
a neenbar certificate of character which
one of its editors gave to Emeline. Ii
reads as follows: . '
"She has black eyes and black hair.
Whenever she comes home from a wake
her eyes are blacker, and she has less
hair by three or four handsful. Emeline
is engaged, and her yonng man is the
most Foccessful assimilutor of butter and
anirar and milk that ever emigrated from
Ireland. He is equal to any demand of
this kind upon bis stomach, t.meline
has been vaccinated, but it didn't take.
This is the only thing about Lmeline
that won t take. Spoons take, and liero
stitched handkerchiefs take, and she can
nail more pillow-caaos and forkt within
a given time than any other girl of the
same sire and weight in tbe lund of the
free. Her 'Sunday out ' conies twice a
week, and she can ah stockings in the
tea-kettle more efficiently than any
cate herself some night. She would be
much more efficient as a good, quiet,
docile corpse than as a servant '"!."
This was "giving a character with a
vengeance. But the editor reckoned
without his host. He confesses that his
"recommend" must have been shown to
Emeline' a brother, because the latter has
been "sitting on our frontdoor step with
a discouraging club for a week past, and
we have gone in and out through the alley
gate." - '
Whittemorea Confeased Tlilef.
Dunn, the Radical candidate over
whom Whittemore was re-elected to Con
gress last f'hursday, did not confine him
self during the canvass to facts with re
gard to the cadetship business. He freely
exhibited to voters in the district a letter
from Mr. S. P. Sheppard, of tho firm of
Sheppard & Co., dry goods merchants,
Boston, of which the following is the
most suggestive portion :
" I have had a long talk with W. F.
Shaw, the man fro'm whom Whittemore
stole money. He was in Mr. Shaw's em
ploy, nnd took the money at various
times in stock, which he sold. . His pe
culations extended over quite a space of
time, and amounted iu the aggregate to
some $50(10. This amount was ascer
tained, but whether more was taken is
not known. .Shaw has a writing of
Whittemere acknowledging the theft,
and promising to restore the amonnt as
soon as he can. Up to this time he has
not paid anything. Shaw is now quite
friendly to Whittemore, and you will see
it is for his interest to have him' back in
Congress." . .-.
The reader will see that Shaw's desire
is to have Whittemore " back in Con
gress," so that he can-make money and
pay back the $5000, is rather hard on
Congress. Perhaps Whittemore had al
ready entered upon his duty to Shaw
when he sold the cadetship.
