WASHINGTON CITY. .'About the bcU and most truthful thing we have read .lately Uie following pungent letter from lTonJIicR Walsh, the notable member of Con gress' from New York. It is oddresesd to a New Vorlc'Suudny paper, and contains a lifelike picture of the Capital of. this great nation. It is yery caus tic; biit'tiot a whit loo severe. Every man who has sojourned awhile at Washington will recognise its statements as literally true. It has always been a matter or great astonish ment' to us that any administration should appoint to office the oringi.i", spuuglng, sycophantic loafers about Washington. A more suicidal policy could luftbe indulged in by an Executive ambition of re taining the good mil of bis party and the respect f ,h nnuntrr. And yet every administration Mmi mitun "with a love of Washington and its hanri on. until now we think with the writer of this letter, that the next thing to bo looked for "is an application from a number of them for pensions on the cround of luring served in the District oi c itimbia for a specific number of years." Wo are induced to think that appointments have been inada on this ground already. At lea3t, wo havo Heard of some that it would puzzle a Philadelphia lawyer to "five any other for. " The impositions of the hotel keepers and their dependents are justly considered among the most ehamufiil specimen! of Washington knavery. The fleecing process commencing with the hotel keeper luoiself, and running down through all the grada tinnsto the boot black and porter, never ceases un til the traveller is at a goodly distance from the city, Kvtm ihen. his ears ring with the cries of waiters, nbrters, and boot-blacks, and for months afterwards jheidea of a Washington hotel has a peculiar hor ror to him, lWe have ritne33ed some amusing things in the hotels at. Washington. To relate more than one or two, however, would occupy too much space. We once sent a waiter out to buy a hat box, giving him tho usu.ll price for that article, llo stole one from -an a homing room, and then swore that it cost him double the sum we save him. The hour for leav ing wm at hand, and wa were in too great a hur- 'ry to "be oQ"" to investigate small matters. So we meekly paid him his demands, and left. We have .seeu c.;utlemea sit at the dinner table at least an ."hour without receiving the slightest attention. In viin thev beckoned, called, and finally swore. The gentry in white gloves and aprons were inexora- Lie. We have seeu guests not unfrequently leave the dinner tablo in despair, without attracting any particular notice on the part of either waiter or landlord. The cause of such neglect was not the (viireltv of waiters or of food, but the failure of the aforesaid guests to understand the beauties and merits of the "biiying-up'' system in regard to .waiters. These latter gentlemen, in some of the hotels at Washington, scarcely ever condescend to wait upon a man who is "too mean" to stipulate in advance for their services. ' . ," These waiters know by instinct (for it is scarcely credible that Heaven has gifted such knaves -with .anything above instinct) every guest who is taking his liut meal before departure. For lhat meal he is a favored mortal. We once saw a jwor fellow who, during stay of six or seven days, had maintained a hard struggle to keep from the dining room to take his last dinner. Immediately four waiter conducted him to a "reserved " seat, and surfeited him with atten tions. All the delicacies on the bill of fare were wn before him, and while he eat he was the very - picture of agreeable amazement The victim's de lusion was complete; so complete, indeed, that it it required nearly all tlio process which was to follow to relieve him. As he arose from the table, his persecutors were at hand, aad presenting them selves after the most approved " stand and deliver style," asked for "a quarter" or "a half" apiece lor their services. In the presence of a hundred g.im.s, and un.ltr the influence of a good dinner, the victim submits without a mumur. But the end U not yet It U easy to imagine what befell lum aftu-wards. He is hardly away from the odors of the dining room, before another highwayman, ' the bay that brushed your clothes, sir," stops him, -and he, too, must have his pay. At the cleik's ':dik, victim settles his bill, which is large enough to over all possible extra, and thanks his stars that the bleeding process is at length over. Vain hope ! As he enters the coach, he is assailed with the heart-rending cry "Dont forget the boot black." "D u the boot black!" says victim, at length fully rcovered from his delusion. At the depot, the hst or his tonnenters in the shape of the porter presents himself, who can't be put off like the un fortunate "boots." Ik must be paid, or victim must do without his baggage. Unt. we will say no more. Hear what the re d nibtable member from New York says on the same 3nbject : Wasiiisctcn, Saturday, Feb. 11, ISol. If any argument were needed to demonstrate the absurdity, and the inconvenience and injury to all -iavo the shiftless, grasping, and dependent "leeches permanently residing there, of locating the capital of a great 3Ute not to say nation in a mere vil lage, it is abundantly furnished in this city Wash- ingtou. Its inhabitant seem to consider them ". pelves specially entitled to receive a skulking, epnnging, and fat Inelihood out of the American people; and the tir.t, and, indeed, indispensible - prerequisite on the part of all public men towards . .getting in their goc-.J gweos, and obtaining personal 'jwjiularity among them, is that ot proving false to the people whom lie is sent hero to faithfully repre sent, by giving away every dollar he receives or -.. ran get hold ol, and voting for every rascally ap propriation which they may feel disposed to de mand fiom the government. Not content with quartering themselves in large droves tinder the dishonest pretext of belonging to States which they have either never seeu, or been compelled to run :nway from, as cleiki, messengers, and employees of every description, in all the departments, they impudently call upon the people of the United States, through their representatives in Congress, to open their vtreets and avenues, grade, pave, and light them; pay their police; construct a dock some two miles long which is misnamed a canal to save them cartage, by bringing them lumber, fire wood, coal, oysters, and other etceteras, to their , y uoors, then to erect iron bridges over it at the tro-Hing of nearly every street; and finally, by way r completing the measure of their cool and dis ,lmB effrontery, they modestly ask and, strange (trr , . ll,u,(rto dono so successfully that f,"" nT and fifth which the them selves nave cast into it n .i - - . their undivided ' S,T0 ln rotm"n !3 ' .Ktinn...!

LILLAKD, Of Meigs county, in the House o Representatives, Feb. 14, 18.j4, pending the consideration of a Mil to autiorize the extension of the- South Western, or Wills' Valley Railroad, of Alabama, to Chatta nooga, or elsewhere in this State, and for other purposes. AIk. Speaker: I made the motion to reconsider the. vote nassinc this bill, not that I have any ob jection whatever to the Alabama road being extend ed to Chattanooga; but on the contrary, I am for granting the right of way for the extension of said road into our State. But Sir, attached to this bill is a verv injurious section, the effect of which is to destroy the Chattanonga, Harrison, Georgetown and Charleston Railroad charter. And here I can not refrain fromprotestmg against this, to me seem ingly unfair way of drafting bills; here wc have a bill purporting to autnorize tne extension oi a iuiu road to Chattanooga, to which we all acree.but un der cover of this, is an insenious section, which if passed will chancre an act of the last Legislature. Now I ask an investigation of this subjoct before hasty action. Let us take the act of the last Legis laturc and gentlemen on this floor remember well the struggle between the Harrison. Georgetown and Charleston route aud tho Blue Spring route the result of which was tho adoption of the George town route to the exclusion of the isluo bpnm route. And now Sir, the section to which I allude, is intended to change the Georgetown route, or rather to destroy it, and transfer the State aid grant ed two years ago from this road, to the Blue Spring route. And I would ask Mr. Speaker, upon what grounds or pretext is this be done 03 there a sin gle petition or memorial presented to this body asking this thing to be doner is mere any tiling before us to convince U3 that the Legislature two years ago erred in adopting this route? Xo Sir, nothing. But the gentleman from Bradley, (Mr. Tidbs,) has made three points in his remarks, upon which he bases his grounds for this section of the bill. First. That by adopting the Blue Spring route, the connection can be made between Chattanooga and the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, by only making eighteen miles of road, from some point on the Western and Atlantic road to Blue Soring. And that to make the connection of Charleston forty-two miles will have to be built Second. That to make the connection at Blue Spring or Cleveland, it will secure to the East Tennessee and Georgia road, the lrcignt on said road of twelve or fifteen miles depending ou the point of connection. Third. That this only proposes to allow the stockholders by their directory to build the road on the route they may see proper, making any con nection they may sec lit with tlie .hist Tennes see and Georgia Railroad, and claims that as they arc the men that expend the money to build the road, that they ought to be allowed this privilege. Now, Mr. Speaker, in regard to the first position, in as much as there are no surveys before us to ver ify his statement, I ask, how can it be nearer when the Georgetown route is a direct route to Char leston, while the other route strikes the East Ten nessee and Georgia Railroad at a right angle, and then run3 at a right angle on said road to Charles ton, and consequently, as he says, running on these different roads, to reach that point by said route. Now, Mr. Speaker, every one who knows any thing about railroads, is aware that changing freight from one road to anotheroverballances many miles travel in time and cost; consequently his argument on this point is nugatory, even if his route was the nearest, which I do not concede. As to his second proposition, that to make the connection at Blue Springs, it would secure to the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad from twelve to fifteen miles freight. This, sir, is the only feasi ble argument the gentleman has raised, in as much as the State is a stockholder in thi3 road. But is the State only interested in this road? I would bo the last one to do anything against this road: I have fought for it during this session as ably as my abil ity would permit, and when other questions have been before us in which this road was vitally inter ested, I have not faltered, but I do not conceive, nor do I imagine that this road, to save freight of a dozen niile3, would oppose other enterprises of at least a3 much importance to the country as the road itself; and in this connection 1 think I may ask: is it not reasonable to suppose that gentlemen who prate so much about the interest of the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, look to other in terests oven stronger than the interest of this road itself? As to his third proposition, that it i3 only to allow those who havo to expend their money to build the road, the privilego of locating it. I would ask who the stockholders are, inasmuch as this bill propones to give them such unlimited power and I would ask further, if they subjcribed tht stock in the Chattanooga, Harri.-onand Georgetown road with the honest intention ot building tho road on its present locality? If so, gentlemen, go on and build it, if the stock was not subscribed with the intention of building it3 chartered route, what right liave they to come up here and ask that they may be allowed to change the route, when they havo taken the stock to the exclusion of others that pro bably would have built, und if they did not sub scribe the stock with the intention of building on this route, for what else could they have subscribed it than to give them at least a pretext to change tlie route. We are told, Mr. Speaker, that this is the only chance to get the connection between Chattanooga and the East Tennessee and Georgia liailroad. I would aak, sir, is tho Rabnrn Gap road to.bo lost sight of, or looked upon as an uncertainty? Tho charter tor this road is a thiough route from tho -tate line to Chattanooga, and oi course will make the cotineciion so much desired from Chattanooga to the hast Tennessee and Georgia Railroad. Then sir, i this road is located the nearest and most pracUcable route, as tho charter calls for, all par- S g f ,osat,1sfled w,th connection it will make, and fur her, 1 propose to the gentleman to take up the Blue Spring route and change it any way he pleases, amend it to suit himself and let tho Georgetown route alone. I havo said this much, Mr, Speaker, because I thought "O-. i7J 7 . V t .v i . - t.

To prevent a surplus, he would authorise tho reduction ot du ties to a regular unitorm rate until the revenue should only meet the necessary wants, of the gov eminent. Adjourned. From the Xew Orleans Picayune, THE TURF. The Mo3t Beautiful Sfortiko Evext of the Ace. As great curiosity has been excited, and many inquiries havo been made, both here and else where, m relation to "The ureat rost atate ataKe( which will be run for in this city, over the Metaine Course, on the first day of April next, wo have thought to interest our sporting readers throughout the country with a short description ot tlie origin, terma, present prospects, and probable brilliant re sults connected with it. This race will, without doubt, be the greatest sporting event which has ever taken place in this country, and it has probably never been exceeded in magnitude by any single race throughout the world. Strange as it may appear to soma minds, mankind from the earliest ages have always viewed with great favor all magnificent displays in which lnrjin nmminfe nF irinno.' minjl el-ill rtniry rrt 1. dn n ger or experience were necessarily involved. In proof of this we might instance tlie Olympic Games of Greece, the Gladiatore of Rome, the Chariot races, the Tournaments, the Bull Fights, and, more than all, the deeds of braveiy, ekjU and strength exhibited in thousands of instances amid the pomp and circumstance of bloody wars. Who docs not recollect tlie exoitemont caused throughout the world by the contest between the yacht America and her English rivals? Who that witnessed the great matches between Eclipse and Henry, between Boston an4,Fashion, or between Wagner and Grey Eagle, can ever forget the circumstauccs attending those great Eporting cveuts ln the State and national pride enlisted, in tho amount of money at stake, m the number ot horses, both in preparation and that will run in the race, and in the probable number of snectators who will be nresent. this anxiously looked for race wjll eclipse all others that nave prcceueu il i,( una uumury. The project of this "State Stako" originated with several gentlemen, from different sections of the country, who chanced to meet in this city, and "touched knees under the same mahogany," during a past racing season. Each was very "sweet" on the merits of the race horses in different parts of tho country, and in his prelerence for lavorite strains of pedigrees in blooded animals. "The Great State Stake," for $20,000, play or pay, with four btates represented, was tlie result. The following are the conditions of the Stake and the subscribers: State Tost Stake. For all ages. Four mile heats. Five thousand dollars subscription, p, Three or more states subscribing to make a race, Each horsp starting to receive $1,000 out of the stakes, provided he i3 r)Qt distanced, and the winner to receive the remainder. One horse only to start for any State. To close op the 1st of January, lo4. The race to bo run over the Metaine Course, New Orleans, according to tho rules of said course on the Saturday previous to the April race week of 18o4. Jach btate subscribing to berepresented by the signatures ot three responsible gentlemen, res idents of said State, a majority of whom shall name the horso to start The stakes to be deposited with the President ol the jNew Orleans Metaine Jockey Club two days previous to the race. Subscribers for the Stale of Lousiana T. J. Wells, D. F. Kenner, J. Hiddleston. Subscribers for Alabama L.E. Smith, S. M. Miller, .T. S. Hunter. Subscribers for Kentucky Willa Viley, Jas. K. Duke, Jas. B. Clay. Subscribers for Mississippi P. B. Starke, John C, Inge, John Ljnton. As the horses which will run will not be certain ly known until the day of the race, we can now only guess which will have the honor of represent ing a sovereign State. Theru are now in training, in different parts of the country, nearly one hun dred race horses, whioh are exported to be present during the April race meeting in this city, and many of them are aspirants to run in the great stake. Among these we may mention Highlander, who has been purchased by Judgo Hunter, of Alabama, for 310,000; Nina, Charmer, Dick Doty, Compro mise, Arrow, Lexington, Reub, Berry, Louis d'Or, Blonde, Lecomle, and Wild Irishmau. Probably a million of dollars will be wagered on the different points and on the grand result of this race. Already largo suni3 have been laid on dif ferent favorites, and on the election of other horses as candidates to represent a State. A bet has been offered in this city of $10,000 that if the track and weather aro favorable on the day of the race, the time made will bo faster than ever before made in tho world. From the character and reputation of the horses in preparation, we think that the bet is a safe one. Aside from this great stake, there will be many other slakes and purses contested for at our spring meeting. About $50,000 in cash will bo put up during the meeting, for prizes, thus af fording sport in variety and profusion, besides giv ing horses of alll grades an opportunity of adding laurels to their reputation and money to the pockets of their owners. The selection of the place and the time for this Driiiiant event has been most happy. The weather is sure to be delightful in this climate in April; the pressing business of the season will be mostly over; the crops and produce will havo been disposed of while the general prosperity of the country will enableall to gratify their inclination by participating in the universal excitement and display of tho oc casion. This city is peculiarly well situated for the scene oi mis sportive iestivau The ease with which it can be reached from every point of the compass, in these days of steam, being unequalled; while naturo has made it so particularly the focus and outlet of the great Mississippi valley. The selection of the Metairio Course as the the atre of this grand spectacle is also a favorable token of success. The Course, in its accommodations, appointments, situation, and quality of track for time, is far superior to that of any other in the country. It has cost the proprietors over $50,000 while more than $20,000 has been expended in improving and beautifying it, in order to render it worthy of the splendid occasion. The Metairie Jockey Club has long been established, and is com posed of a large number of our most resectable wealthy and intelligent fellow-citizens; whose char- j aciura lor noiior auu uprigntness aro as proverbial as their acuteness in and fondness for manly con tests of generous rivalry. All who come will bo welcomed and may rely on meeting with "a fair field and no favor." Aside from the attractions to be presented by this event to the mere lover of sport throughout the country, this race will be the means of collecting together in our Crescent City an assemblage of beauty,chivalry, wealth and distinguished characters, which for gaiety, brilliancy and attractiveness, has never been equalled by any sporting event 6f the age.
