The opening or the reading-room of the new Congressional Library to the public jesterduy was au event in which Wash liigton is interested. . It is not correct history, however, to tay tliat the new reading-room is open to the public On the contrary it Is upon only to trios; who vlhtt: it for the purpose of reading.

The Coi,re.asiojal Library ii-eir, widen bat no larallel in arcliitecUnal elegance anil h.autv anywhere in America and which 11 an j tourists have declared to be only its own parallel, has been open to the public for many i.-onths. Volumes but not too man j, hfie already been written, about its exterior, its wonderfully fas cinating interior, with its rich, florid coloring, i c labyrinths above and below and its gorgeons coriidors, each a picture gallerj. People who look at this build ing time and again do not know that there acre engaged on it twent one pa I at ei s and twenty-four sculptors weri engaged on the various parts of tile structure. When one, howevei, looks at the Coiigr'-fional Library and a.sks who ia its creator the answer is J. L. Smith meyer. He is a AVafchingtonSau, and an architect of whom the inarcl of Capitol Hill is not his only, but his best, monu ment.

As itis dead cwld tvpe.it merely says 'Keep quiet," a pleasing -variation of the hucolic ard eternal "Keep oTf the grass." In that sole nrspeet it is a melancholy place. You think almost intuitively of that other place where weeping willows grow, where JOHN RUSSELL YOUNG, Librarian. immortelles fade in a wcok and the sign reads- "Don't trot your hordes; 1c annoys the dead." At 10 o'clock yesterday morning tliero wns-the ram doing its best to the contrary-quits an interesting coterie in the reading room. It must have been a dis tressing thing to many of the grayheada whom people taw everyday looking at the papers and pH-indli als of 1825 or theie abouts to be kept home on this congenial occasion. Hut there were a row of these. There was one ne looks like Voltaire over whose shoulde a Times reporter peeped- lie was reading a gazette of 1810, and l.!s "specs'' appeared to be focussed on the colnma headed "Reminiscences of "Water loo'' -and Waterloo was only fought in 1815. Tliej began to write icmtnlseeiices early in tlosedays. There were, as a mat tei of fact, not nure than twenty people in the room at that time, three of whom were what Anthony Trollop? calls little old ladies. Two of these were well known amphibious. Of course it was a good guess that tt.ey were reading the "Lives of the Sa'nts'' or "An Hour With liolly Madi son.' It would have been a mighty Ind gaess as to ore of them at least.

Spofford li Working every day at the old Library to get these last mentioned cl isses into the new building in classified form. A brief history of the building may be read now with interest: Six years have been consumed in tne construction or the building, and its cost, including that ot the site, has been SG.250,000. Notvyitiibtunding the rapid accumulation pf books under the copyright system, it is calculated that this building will provide ample io,m for our National Library for more than a century.

The degree of splendor reached by this building is such that no other building in America can compare with It; none elsewhere can ecel it. All that modern artistic taste ami genius coul 1 dcid'ilias contributed to produce the splendid interior. The finest materials have been nwd In the construction ot the balldliig. and the best artists that could be emplod have fashioned the marble into forms of beauty and adorned the walla with paintings of rare merit. The exterior presents a view of white marble, gray granite, and a dome of gold, with broad marble steps leading to the main cntinuce. The stle is almost severe .and hardly prepares the visitor for the ornate beautv of the interior. The chief architectural features of the building aic the foyer and the public reading room, although other looms attract attention and arc rich with palntiugb and wood and marble carvings. The grand nairbie stairwavs on either side of the fover lead to a gallerv The celling Is supported by columns or marble, a'l beautifully carved. The walls about the low er flooi are ornamented with grace ful forms cut from the marble by the ar tist's chif-eh In the galleries above the simplicity and purltj of coloring which charaetcile the lower ortio" of this mpgnlfleen- incloure gives way to a nch ncss of brilliant coloring which is startling In its nfvettv. The brightest color have been utilized, but in not a single instance are they lacking in harmony. The ceiling Is composed of deeplv sunken panels, richly gl'ded and it-closed by caned and dec orated learns, which are themselves sup Ported bi highly ornamented brackets. The liallR about the foyer, toth those in the nailery above and on the rioor Iwlow. have vaulted ceilings of inlaid mosaic. Tne walls of tne gallery are decorated with caring3 and paintings.
