The following letter wa3 written In reply to an open letter published by the Commissioners In tho Star December 19, 16S3: Mn. Euitok: On behalf of owners of real estate dimnged by recent public Improvements, I addressed the Hoard of District Commissioners In November last a respectful memorial. Instead of referring to mo important suuieci or mat pcuiion in mo annual report to the President of the United States. Decern. ber 4, or acknowledging Its receipt, said board pub- jiauuiiwiutn'u rep'y ut juur paper ot irecetnoer m, In an article headed "Millions Involved." That article commences with garbled, misprinted extracts from tho memorial, and closes wllh many grave mlstatements ot tho law and facts involved. I solicit space for n brief reply. It Is evident that tho publication of such a "startling exhibit" was In tended to prejudice tho President or tho United stales and newly-elected members of Congress as to tho merits ot the demands of thousands of tax payers, 'and It Is specially amusing when we reflect that It Is prompted by tho holders of the 3-cs bouds legally Issued In settlement ot precisely similar claims. After the signal defeat that the Commissioners met In their hostile opposition last session to the bill for the relief ot the Carroll heirs, It was natural to suppose that they had recovered from tho delusion that they could usurp the functions of cither the legislative, executive, or Judicial branch of the Government. It IB the plain duty of thelloudot Commissioners, under the law, to lay before tho President ot tho United Slates annually a written report on thoaltaira of the District of Columbia. If the members ot that board see lit to deny the right of petition and not enlighten the new Executive on ft subject in which thousands of tax-payers ore Interested, they alone aro responsible. Fonunately experience has proved that the petty tyranny attempted to bo exercised ot late by our Imperial rulers receives no encoarage ment from the people's representatives tn Congress or the President The Commissioners In their letter declare that in cases where relief can be had through the courts there Is no necessity for legislation. O ranted. Hot In most of these cases the aggrieved parties wero assured by tho District authorities that all would be uado rliht without an appeal to tlio courts. Rely ing on these, assurances, while witnessing the prog ress of legislation pending, they rested from tlmo to time till tho statute ot limitations barred themjrom a recourse to their legal rlghls. Now, after nfl tho former Commissioners havo recommended favora ble action by Congress on these claims, after the re peated assurances given the many claimants by tho different Boards of Commissioners that all would be made right, now that the plea that the claims are "outlawed" (to which the board has recently and successfully resorted) can be used, the Commission ers see fit, exultiugly, to sneer at the honest appeals of thesowtrthy but much-Injured citizens, for dar ing to ask their bignesses to graciously bring their cases to tho favorable notice of tho President, and for appealing to tho Justice and equity of Congress iur ii'KiHiuuuu iu (eunuurBo tnein lor damages sus tained in consequence ot tho Illegal and arbitrary action of the appointed authorities of the District. Notwithstanding what they allege they are "ad vised." the members ot the Hoard of Commissioners are fully aware and know that the late Hoard ot Audit did have full authority ot law, under tho act of June 20, 1S7I, to sottlo precisely such damage claims riled with tho Hoard ot Public Works, prior to that iaie,uuu mm sum jiuuniui auuii was ugaia ouinnr Ized by Joint resolution of December :t, isu.io re ceive anil sctllo more, and It was not abolished be cause ot auditing such claims; and furthermore, that said board was abolished becanso of reckless payments In the settlement ut contractors' claims, and that alone. The members of Iho Hoard of Commissioners are equally well nwaro Ihtt theso claims do not amount to "millions." und that 1 have no Interest In any of them other than as attorney for such fellow-oltlsens as havo employed mo to Dress their petition for a hearing on tho merits of their claims. The Commis si incrs are custodians ,oi an tneso claims, and the records which the? now talslfr. Let tliu full list bo furnished Congress. Nell her tho United States, nor uuy number of tho tax-payers of the National Capital, can be so unjust und unfair nsto denvto tho re maining few who wero really badly, specially damaged In their real cslate.aud have not iiail"inclr day In court," tho same hearing accorded their neighbors, on the ground that tho sum Involved Is largo, or on any other account. It Is true that tho nubile Improvements conducted of lato years tn this city by tho agents of tho United btatcs (not by elected municipal officers) havo greatly beautified tho Nation's Capital, and largely enhanced the value ot all public properties, also prlvute properties, wllh Iho exception of mat ol tho fow, comparatively, who now seek Iho relief which has so often been promised. They do not seek re lief for "Inconveniences," us charged by the Com missioners, but for actual damages to tho value or real estate, and they havo not bocn relieved (as were Senators J'dtnumls and Uayard)thoexorbltant Illegal assessments for alleged "special Improve ments." Inclosing, Mr, Editor, permit me to say that my respectful memorial to iho Commissioners was on behalf ot Uvo hundred honest citizens ot tho United States, taxod without representation, whoso real cs tato has been damaged especially by reason of pub lic Improvements conducted by the agents of Iho United Mates not at tho requests of my clleuts, but against their solemn protest with promise ot prompt payment of all damages, aud who simply pray tor a fulfillment of that promiso In the sumo manner It was grouted to their neighbors. It Is painfully Hue that tho past suhiulsslvenesa of tho citizens of tho Untied States residing at the Na tional Capital has so encouraged cncroachmcuts on their rights that to tho denial of tho sacred right of petition is added a misrepresentation by the Com missioners of Iho facts lu vol veil lu a pctltlou. tho only apparent purpose being the more cifcctuully to defeat tho cuds of Justice. It may bo well lo reflect on the words of Senator lugalls spoken last January In tho Senate, when he satd, "For nations, as tor man, there is nothing so unprofitable ns Injustice" I", V, Wimtakkh, lllKb Litems VlaillcstUg Its Wisdom.

Scnor Don .Tnllan Alvarez died In Havana, Cuba. a fortnight ago, worth tJ.000.ooo. Ills fortune was made by a curious accident, and as the Incident will serve to adorn & tale, t will relsto It as It was told to mo by Scnor Alvaroz himself. In ISI-n young Spaniard left his natlvo land and came to the Island of Cuba to seek his fortune. He was a Catalan, as they denominate thenallvcsof the Trovlnco ol Catalonia, In Spain. Tho people of that section aro called "llio Tankcciof Spain," be canso ot tholr shrewdness nnd generally.wldc-awake character, and wuen they once get hold of n dollar they do not let It go unless It Is to bring another one back with It, Julian Alvarcz-ho had not yet arrived at Inn dignity of being tailed Scnor Don was as thrifty as tho people of his rrovlnco usually arc, and nftcrhohad got well of Iho yellow fever which every new comer In Havana expects to havo heforo his acclimation Is complete ho looked about him him for a permanent business. lie conelndcd to go Into tho tobacco trado. Hohadjnst two doubloons with which to begin. Hot tho young man was bright, patient, nnd shrswd. Ills mils shop becarao the headquarters ot all tho Catalan worklngmen In Havana, and tho proprietor sold a very fair cigar to them at ten for n inrtffo, or two for a cent In our money. The gain was small but steady, nnd directly Alvarez was tho best known Catalan In tho capital city ot the "Ever Faithful Isle." He soon learned that thero was moro profit In hlgh-grado cigars than cheap ones. He felt that If he could make a cigar which ho could Induce Ameri cans to buyon some sentimental ncconnthls fortuno was made. Abont Ihls time ho took a schooner which was plying between Havana nnd NcwOrlcans Vand came to tho latter city. Ho had n friend thero who tiled only a year or two ago, Don Joso Domingo, qullo a character In tho Crescent City, and thltly- nvo years ago tno nest known cigar dealer in tho South and Southwest. Onccvcnlnrr In April Iho two had been out to Hottdro's, n famous restaurant on tho lake shore, to dine. Tho tuMw was Spanish when you wanted It that way, and tho two enjoyed a banquet that reminded them of home and warmed their hearts with deep draughts of red Cotalan wine. While they wero sitting nt tablo thero was n movement nil through tho room. A tall man In tho evening dress ot the tlmo came In, accompanied by somo of tho most prominent citizens of New Or leans. An enthusiastic gentleman present took oft hU hat and called oul," Threo cheers for Henry Clay?" "Who Is tho gentleman?" asked Alvarez ot his friend Domingo. The latter In glowing Spanish (for he was a great admirer of "Harry ot tho West") told him how great arid powerful tno Kentucky states man was, and that ho would ono day be President. "For Mof," said Alvarez. "I will namo my cigar tho Henry ClayP Domingo became tho American agent for the new Henry Clay brand. The canvass was very hot that year. Every Whig In Louisiana and Mississippi bought tho Henry Clay cigar, and As the stock In It was excellent Its fame extended all over the nation. 3n 1811 AJrnrez maiiof300,ooo prom on his sales ot dgara of this brand In New Or leans, Savannah, Charleston, Louisville, and St. Louis alone. The fame ot the brand grew, and In ISM ths European demand for tho cigar was as great as In the United States. Thus the fortunate accident ot a name made for an enterprising, shrewd man from first to last not less thau f 50,ooo,ooo. Tho country residence of Scnor Don Julian Alvarez In Cuba was liko a dream from Monte Chrlsto. It was n palace In marble, and the fittings wereot the most splendid character. There were grounds ot Oriental loveliness, tinkling fountains scented by the choicest flowers that bloom. And In tho great otfon oiled wllh pictures and marbles In tho place of honor was a splendid full-length portrait ot Mr. Clay. An accident occurred last week In New Orleans that should serve as a warning to other localities where electricity is used for lighting the streets. On Tuesday evening, December 29, two Italians were standing on the corner ot Chartresnnd St. Louis streets. "Thero was at tho corner," says tho Ttmes-Democrol of tho anth ultimo, "an electric light pole of the Louisiana Electrlo Light and Power Company, and It otlered a convenient place to lean against. Mangella walked up to It and rested his left shoulder on It, nnd his hand must have touched the wire running down It. Scarcely had he pressed It, when a bright flam ran down the pole; he gave a shout, and fell backwards, dead. Ills friend, Torclcle, sprang to catch him, nnd In doing so his hand came In contact with tho pole, and he went headlong to the sidewalk, and lay like one suddenly killed. The palm of his hand was burnt Into white blisters." How this llghtnlog-like death occurred was the question. The company was a new one, and their wires wero Just being put np, and no electric power had been turned on, even to test the wires. The Brush Light Company, however, had a wire near. "On exami nation It was found that a Ilrush wire bad actually crossed the guy wlro of tho master arm used for raising and lowering tho lamp. Even whcnruunlng there would bo no current on this wire, and conse quently no danger, but last night the Urush wire was leaning right against the guy wire of the lamp at a point between tho tip of tho heel nnd Its con nection wllh tho pole. This sent nearly the full force of the current Into this wire and caused a ground. Tho man leaning against It must have touched the wire with his hand, as It requires Iho naked body to form the contact between the earth and tho wlro, and thus comp'ete the circuit. This circuit having been completed, his damp feet being on the banquette, It killed him Instantaneously." The coroner found the man had died as by a llgnt ntng stroke. Tho heart was ruptured, the brain con gealed, and large blood vessels rent all through the bedy like a bnrslcd water-main In tlmo of frost. The only purpose the wrltor has In calling attention to this sudden and awful death Is that the electric. light wires hero may bo so watched and protected 1 that such an accident may not somo day happen on our streets. At least ono company has Us wires hung upon Iron poles. Without any reason to bo llcvc that aught but the utmost caro and watchful ness is exercised by tho electricians In charge, might not these poles become dangerous under certain contingencies? The death of n man In front of Nlblo's, In Now York, a few years ago, by Just such an accident as befell thonnfortnnate man In New Orleans, shows there Is danger somewhere. Could any clrcnrastanco or accident to tho wire occur that would make tho Iron supporters danger ous It touched, or llkoly to receive such an elcclrlo charge as would take tho llfo of a person touching them? This Is a question the entire community la Interested In having answered. If there U no possi bility of danger tho people who llvo close to the elcclrlc-llght supporters will he roassured. The United Slate Senate Is especially strong lu ex Governors and millionaires at this time, of the first there are ten, viz,: llawlcy, of Connecticut; Stan ford, California; Cullom, Illinois; Vance, North Carolina; Hampton, South Carolina; Coke, Texas; Harris, Tennessee; Berry, of Arkansas, aud both the Georgia Senators havoscivcd nsChlefMaxIstrato of Georgia. Harrison, ot Indiana, carno very near to being elected Governor of that State. Stanford, of California, Is the wealthiest member of tho Senate; then csues Fair, of Nevada, and Ilrowu, of Georgia, Is the third, and Gibson, of Louisiana, Camden, of Welt Virginia, and Cameron, ot Pennsylvania, aro next In point nf fortuno. Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, is among tho very rich men In tho Upper House, and by some Is classed next to Fair. Palmer, ot Mlchl. gan, nnd Sawyer, of Wisconsin, aro tho wealthiest Senators from the Western States proper. It Is very difficult to write of such matters as this with accuracy, and I have followed tho popular estimate lu what has been said above. I notice that tho Now York .Vim states that Mr, MoAdoo, ol Now Jersey, Is tho youngest member of the present Congress. While the matter Is not one of very great consequence, It Is as well to bo accu rate, and the Kim Is mistaken. Mr. MoAdoo was born In 1853. Mr. La Folletlo, ot Wisconsin, came Into Iho world nearly two years later, In Juno, W Mr. Charles H. Voorhcct, Delegate lu Congress from Washington Territory, Is Iho third youngest mem ber, Ho was born In June, IBM, nnd, liko his dis tinguished father, the senior Senator from Indiana, has made bis debut In public nt nvcry early ago. The youngest man elected to Congress Iho past third of the century that 1 can remember was tho Hon. John Young Brown, who represented the First Kentucky District tho year tho war began. I bellcvo ho was only twenty.threo when elected, and had to wait almost eighteen months before ho attained tho years required by law of a Congressman before ho can sit In tho Lower House Mr. Phelps, tho American Jllulsler lo the Court of St. James, lias rendered his countrymen a decided service la ono respect, and of a sufficiently Impor tant character to Justify his sagacity and ability as a lawyer It he never did anything else. Ho reports offlclally that tho great estates In England that pur port to be only nwalllng tho verliicatlon of American claimants to bo transferred to this aide ot the Allan, tlo aro without existence. He speaks of the most noted of them, that said to belong to tho Lavtrencu Townloy heirs, In theso words: "There Is no money in the Bank ot England belonging to tho Lawrcuco Townley or tho Towulcy rstatc, or tu auy claimant! under cither. There Is no such cstato lu England as tho Lawrenco-Towulcy estnto, nor any known family ol that designation, Tho Towuley estate Is n Itrgo landed property lu tho counties of I-ancnstcr and York, which U now, as It has been for a H'ry long time, In tho possession of Its proprietors. Tho possession Is completely protected by llio law ot England, Thero uro uo unknown or American oiuicrs of any part of It and 110 ground whatever for any such claim." A dlstlnguUhod member of tho Ohio bar tells mo that not less thau f 1011,000 has been speut by the persons who belletcdlhemseltcs to bo Ihehilrsto tbli estate In trying to obtain their property. Who has been benefited by thla expenditure I do uot kuow, but It Is ua well that tho vain pursuit should .u,,!,.....! mo yumpur.uii suouiu be ended at last by .0 clear nud unmistakable a statement as that of our Minister to Kuglaud, and It Is to be hoped that this will cud for once aud fur all auy further attempts to obtalu hopeless aud uuat- talnable fortunes that havens existence except in the Imaginations of enterprising attorneys. Tho fashionable season this year wilt bo the long est of the present century. Lnit year It ended on Tuesday, Febrnary 11, and Killer Sunday came on April 0. This year it ends March 9, and Easter comes on April S3, which Is without precedent, as far as t can learn, and hat not occurred t.Hhln the memory ot anyenn living. It will not ofur again until sometime In the twentieth century, and it Is hardly probable that any one now living will see 11. POLITICAL, POINTS. Hon. John D.

If Ihe Dcmocrallo parly Is to remain In power, It must he by tho leadership of Its hralns and charac ter. The present Administration represents that leadership. noIon l'ott, Dem.) "Kxccjit when mistakes aro Inadvertently made," says the Hoston TiYinmrfjif, (Rep.,) "there Is lllllo danger ntany department of this Administration dismissing omccrn Indlspentablo to an ctnclcnt ser vice," The war on Indian Inspector Thomas has been transferred from tho Whllollousonnd tho Interior Department to tho Hcnato Commtttco on Indian Affairs, whero It Is likely to bo decided on purely political grounds. Senator Cullom, of Illinois, Is said to bo preparing nn arraignment ot the President for making partisan appointments. Tho Senator's facts, If factslhcynrc, will ho news lo many Democrats, who thought tho President was going too Blow. Mr. SherldanShook has nominated Governor Hill for tho Presidency. As the Hon. Shook qualities this announcement with the statement that he belletcs Illalne will run against him, nnd otters tn bet $ 10,000 that Wains beats Hill, Mr. Shook's Indorsement Is a long ways under proof. In tho right tor tho speakership of the New York Assembly tho worst clement In the Republican parly appears to have been defeated by tho next to tho worst. Out otthls result n grain ot comfort may bo gathered, but there Is no occasion for hysterical oj.riilta(iclilita fferord. Tho non. a. Frlsblo Hoar has brought back from Boston a plcco of tho bloody shirt, which he will ex hibit to tho American people when ho comes to dis cuss tho number of "Itebcl llrlgadlcra" appointed 10 ortlce.

Senator Hampton's bill making It a penal offense for members to recommend their own or anybody else's constituents for office will become a law when the Senate gives up lis constitutional prerogative of advising aud consenting to appointments. Until that time It Is not likely to get beyond the pigeon holes which an obliging clerk keeps for prlzo bant lings.

It was remarked by n guest nt tho merchants' dinner that the name of Mr. Blaine, when spoken by ono of tho visiting statesmen, was received with dignified silence by the company.

Lord Duffcrln's restoration ot Iho Hindu strong hold of Gwallor to Its rightful owner,tho Maharajah Sclndlah, Is an honorable though tardy; revocation of agile tons Injustice. Iu tho crisis ot tho great rebellion ot 1S57 tho mutinous sepoys mado n dash upon Gwallor, which, lying barely Blxty-flre miles south of the great city of Agra, nnd possessing a strongly fortified citadel nn tho brow of nn almost Inaccessible sandstone cliff, was a stragetlo point ot paramount Importance. Sclndlah, loyal throughout to the British cause, made a gallant attempt to hold tho place, but was defeated and expelled with moro than one hair's breadth escape from death. For this devotion he was subsequently rewarded by be ing deprived of his hereditary Btronghold, which wss thenceforth held by n British garrison. In nd dltlon to Us military nnd political value Gwallor has tho antiquarian dignity ot hnvlng been founded ky a native Hindu prince in 7T3, the martial glory of re- Belllng the Afghan Invasion of Mahmoud, ot hlznl.

The London correspondent ol tho New York Times says: "The needle of the Continental compaBS has been fluttering very near duo war during the week. Everywhere are heard alarmist Btorles of huge armaments In Russia and Austria and preparations to fight as soon as spring opens. Theso probably mean nothing more than that the two empires And It difficult to arrango the details of tho partition. Whatever principle Is agreed upon, the Balkan matter la now about where It was some tlmo ago, with the difference that HuBBla now knows her own mind, and Austria, by her blundering, has-lost the Initiative In the settlement. The Berlin quid mines firetend to believe that a great war between tho two s Inevitable this year, with tho result that Germany will absorb Warsaw, Vienna, and Trieste, and ihe Ilapshurgs at Test hand Constantinople will rule a confederation of Danube and Balkan States, the Sultan being requited for his removal from Europe by a grant of all of Russia's Southern Asiatic pos sessions, Including Persia. This pretty new jear fantasy Is, perhaps, ns' well worth pondering upon as tho other plans which it pleases the pre:s to make tor the powers." The unbrokcu series or triumphs which have marked Lord Salisbury's management of England's foreign policy since he took ofllcc seem to be appre ciated more highly on the continent than at home, whero tho new clodhopper voters seem to have been seduced by promises very much liko the "forty acres nnd a mule" which tho Republicans dangled beforo the Southern blacks. Although the Bulgaro Roumellan Union, on which Lord Salisbury Insisted from Iho first, must be counted as one of his most fortunate Blrokcs, the following enumeration shows a long list besides: "The itveue Coiifemjjornfue, discussing the English elections, describes Lord Salisbury's foreign policy as bo adroit and success ful that Prance ought to aim at an alliance wllh HusBla to avoid being checkmated In Egypt nnd the far Eisl. After enumerating tho rebuffs en countered by England ill every direction under the previous Cabinet, tho writer reviews tho successes of the present Ministry namely, a settlement of tho Afghan frontier question; tho understanding wllh China, who has already mopped Russian lutrlgucs InCorea; tho occupation of Port Hamilton, which will become n second Gibraltar; a prospective al Banco wllh Japan; a probable understanding with Persia; tho diminution of Russian Influence In the Balkans; the deference for England now shown by Germauy; tho Anglo-Turkish Convention nu Egypt; and, lastly, tho Burmese expedition." "In shoit," Bays tho writer, "Ihe very remarkable campaign In augurated, or rather Improvised by Lord Salisbury, with results already considerable, consists In re running the struggle with England's two traditional adversaries. Lord Salisbury thwarts Russia with tho Bupportof Chins, India, and other Oriental States In Asia; he thwarts her with thu support of Turkey in the Levant, ami wllh tho secret support of Ger many In Europe. He thwarts franco with the support ot Turkey In Egypt, nnd with Ids own forces and Chinese co-opernllon In the colonial domain." After advocating an alliance with Russia as tho only pos sible ally of France, tho writer says; "X ho English elections, whether Liberals or Conservatives win, will In no way change the fundamental and Inevita ble principles ol British policy. Tho Conservatives merely practice voluntarily a policy, which the Liberals are forced to accept. The former succeed, nnd the latter fall. Tho only difference from tho French standpoint between nn English Cabinet pre sided over by Mr. Gladstono and one presided over by Lord Salisbury Is that the former will bo clumsy, short-sighted, and vacillating, where the latter will bo sagacious, adroit, aud firm." Tho alliance ot tho Three Emperors has always been somewhat of a mystery to those who under stand how essentially conflicting aro the permanent Interests of Russia, Austria, nnd Germany. Somo light Is thrown on Ibis alliance In a recent letter from St. Petersburg to the London rimes, vWilch says : "There Is ono most Important aspect of this wonderful alliance between Russia, Germany, nnd Austria that has hsd very lllllo attention paid to It In England, which Is very strange when English love of popular liberties of every klud Is considered. As alliances between governments aro generally made for some external purposes, this particular one Is billevcd to havo for Its principal object the maintenance of tho status ito lu the Balkan Penin sula. This we may take for granted, without leav ing out of view that It was also made, and perhaps even chiefly so, lor Internal rcas.ns and objects. It Is nothing more nor less lhau a purely dynastic, coin pact or the three Emperors for llio purpose of co. opcratlngugalust the revolutionary elements ot all kinds which are so dangerously rife lu their respec tive dominions, ami fur mutually supporting the monarchical principle. Thu various frontier ar rangements wllh regard to the co-opcrallon of their respective Judicial authorities, tho political extradi tion treaties with Pruaslu and Bavaria which Ills marck finds so dlfllciilt lu get accepted by the whole German Empire, and tho Inhunianexpulslou otlliis. slau and Austrian Poles uud Jews from Germany all testify to the strength of Ihlssldo ot thoullUnre. With regard to tho extraordinary expulsion nf Poles nnd other Russian subjects from Germauy, which has been fiercely denounced In Ihe Russlau as well as foreign press as ono of the most rlagruut offenses ngalnst International comity ever committed, the Russlau government Is lu uo way moved by this treatment of lis subjects. On tho contrary, this high-handed measure against the Poloulzallon ol the North German frontier provinces, as I'rltico Ills marck explains It, Is u distinct benefit to Iho Rus sian government by destroying u powerful Polish faction which helped the Poles lu Russia to itiatti tain their anil-Russian Intrlguis, and which Russia herself could not reach. Ills precisely this aspect or tbo aBlanco which explains how It Is able to bear the great strain undoubtedly put upon It now ns far as regards Austria In this question of tho Roumellan revolution. Russia and her allleshovetlrmly bound themselves to opi.oso the roolutlonary principle wherever they Hud it. All thlsiroublo In the Balkan Peninsula was brought about byarcvolutlonagalnst constituted authority sanctioned by Europe, and such a principle canuot for a moment bo approved by auiocrailu Russia.
