X.ADY LITER ATF.GRH AT 1.AIIUC,
There la nothing In tbU world I admire bo
much m a woman of talent, lndaitry and
prudence. 1 rotor more particularly to
womon wb.o havo taken to literature, and
owe nothing to friendship for their popu
larity. Such woman battles nobly with
mo ma or ronano. la Mir reliant. In Jewn J
cnt and rarely condcacaoda to ask the as
sistance of her friends Jo rcUlnir before the
public. Bho fsels proud In tho poticulon of
ner euu, dui nsTcr orerratos tbem. Her
mannera Indicate tho retiring ladyj her
wnoia caiuro u sensutrsi her thoughts are
fixed on tho object of her ambition. Such a
woman cam nut mtie for the thowy rut
menu of that Indefinable Jade called "fain.
lon&ble society," noTcr forces herself upon
tho public Sho tools grateful to tho press
for what It says of her, but rarely courts Its
farors. 6ho prefers to wait tintll pnbllq
opinion has pissed Judgment upon her real
worth, rather than purchase notoriety with
questionable means. I am proud of tho
acquaintance of several ladles of this ds
scrlptlou, whose merits tho public ha to been
quick to recognize, and whoso famo Is of
real ralne Thcio women have done some
thing for onr literature. They have Ira
presicd a good moral on raanyyoungmlnds.
I am howcrer sorry to say that Washington
bus Juitat this time a superabundance of
women, who hare taken to literature, of an
entirely oppoalto character. These dam
ids, too Idle to go out nursing, and loo
proi d to tako In washing, haro for somo
time been drifting about loose on tho out
skirts of what is called fashlonablo society
number three. They aro extremely light
hearted, and not very heavy-headed. Like
a tipper ship they spread an Immensa deal
or canvas for tho alio of tho hull, and one
J surprised to boo how they stand up undor
It. lu fine they dass In fall feathers, and
may bo seen on the Avenue of a One after,
noon, dashing along at a brlek pace, af
f cling a masculine air, and looking Tery
(ike n whole millinery shop oat Tor an
alrlne.
1 hare at this moment oao of these gay 1
anucrcrs in my eye, a certain nut i-uuo-1
racna, as she delight In writing herself
'down lu the Horn TrulTUer. Fhllo
mena Is an exact counterpart of a dozen or so
of these bright-colored butterflies, who dart
about Washington mounted on the very
smallest literary reputation. Miss Fhllo
mena Is very severe on our mother toaguat
cuts and slays It la various ways, and serves
It up with the solids or her own vanity.
Fhllomena Is, tome, a very lore of a wo
man. She trarola on her pretensions, and
makes a good thing of U, too. She knows
the value of cramming herself down tbs pub
lic's big throat, and for that pufposo
boll Is her delicately embroidered flag In tha
personal column of the IToau Truth TUr,
a journal of high moral character, remark
able as affording an asylum for females who
travel In tho shadow or literature, when
Fhllomena sails up tbo Arenuo of a fino
afternoon, her friends of the Diplomatic
Corps drop her so end of smiles and bowij
moderate crinoline moves aside with aiton
Ubraent as sho sweeps along, and young
Washington turns to take a sly look over
bis shoulder, whlsh Fhllamcna feels Is In ad
miration of her literary reputation. She
has cultivated a dellcato acquaintance with
tbe critics, and affects wonderful respect for
tho press. Mr. FerkIne,of tht Ditty Sfotctr,
Its dear, good friend. Mr. Fudge, of tho
Sat m fay rUitytf has said no end of pretty
things other. Wloows, of the Wtikty Cul
tivator, has mounted her ltterary ability oa
the highest horse, and kept It galloping be-
roro the publio for the last six months. I
btvo several times puxxlod my brain to find
out the secret of Fhllomenas aoqualntanco
with those learned and very worthy censors
of literature. A friend, hlmtelf an acquaint
auco and admirer of Fhllomena, let me Into
It one day. This friend writes profound
essays oa graro subjects for tho Dtsp
ThttJur, a woekly Journal devoted to the
interest! of ladigeut booksellers.
lie received a letter from Fhllomena one
day, saying how much she admired an essay
on thought, which sua had been told was
from bis prn Fhllomena declared nothing
In this worll would afford her more real
pleasure than to meet one whose mind was
stored with such rich gifts. My friend
could not roilitahlntsodellcately conveyed
There w alwoyr a dash of gat Ian try In his
oioaltlon. So, buttoning up his courage,
ii called one morning, and was ushered by
tin urchin la liver J Into sumptuously far
tiUbodaparlmfnts,whero sho holds her litera
ry court. MlssFhllemenallvesln street)
considers It necessary to her literary repu
tation, as well aa her political Influence
to do so. Bho was arrayed la a style of
negilfti quite captivating, and reclined on
tho softest of lounges. My friend was sur
prised to find oue of sosmall a literary repu
tation Indulging lu such splendor, rallo
inena received him with an case of manner
aud freedom truly surprising. Tito min
utes In her company and his native bastifal
ncss had vanished, and ho was as much at
home ae If he had been a Congressman and
an old acquaintance. 8Uo n. J ml red Ms
h riling, no 1 made boM to tell him so. JIo
had not a moro attentive rcilerf She had
several times told suvudl of her friend the
highest obJ a other -iiuUilon was to write
like him Fhllomeua, euggmtcd that per
haps ho would join her orer a cup of tea.
Sho hod a weakness far leu It refreshes her
thoughts. Sho Indulges la It Juil before
sitting down to write a sonnet fur the lUm
Tru(-lilUr, When old aud particular
friends call, (she hopes to call Ulro, cue
soon,) Cboy walk out to W k's, and etloy
u jutit toujur. They get them up so deli
cately My friend had a dash of gallantry
in him, and could not resist an Invitation so
ingeniously cxteadod. " Tho air Is refresh-
lug and If you would not consider It rude,"
said he, " l should bo hippy If yon would
uoaor mo with your company; pcopio or a
literary tarn should consider themselves old
friends."
"Mr., jou BrP injac, too kind'

to get her bonnet and shawl. When she
reappeared, docked out la her finery, my
friend has sine laid she reminded him of
two huge millinery establishments rolled
Into one. Away they tripped, Thllomena
feeling certain aha had made a conquest,
and my friend wishing htmislf at tho opera.
My mend, out of sheer politeness, suggested
that Miss r-hllomena stlect tho supper,
which eho dldt and from such a Tarlcty of
dishes that ho Ugau to get alarmed lest his

tie told mo It was remarkable to seo how
much it took to s apply It. As supper pro
ceeded Fhllomena opened the big budget of
her heart s longings and disappointments.
She must keep up her literary reputation,
and dash la magnificence down the ranks of
society. How to do thsie was firing her a
deal of trouble. Iter lart noril, (U was a
sensation norel,) her publisher told bor,
did not do well) but It was entirely owlog to
his want of tact. According to Thllomena
her publisher had unad her Tery shabbily.
and ought to bars been hanged. Tens of
thousands of copies had boon sold; the critics
had called her the beautiful and accomplish 1
"authoress," and described her book as a
very marrel la literature, and yet, "don't
you think," she said, "I can's get a cont of
htm 1 "
Tbo truth was rhllemsna got tho gool
natured fellows of the pre to Tain pralso
on her book, to say she was beautiful, ae
compllshed and distinguished. Bat the pub.
He did not care about beauty la an author,
and understanding tho trick, could not be
got to a wallow Fullomena's novel, which tho
poor pnbtlsber, who was amiable enough to
undertake It, was forced to sell to market
women for fly traps., Fhllomena wished my
friend was a lawyer, for then she would put
her case against the publisher Into his
hands. Her honest demand could not, she
was sure, be a cent less thantwelre hundred
dollars. Tho poor publisher waa out of
rocket at least five hundred dollars, aul
there, was no sympathy for him. This book
had evidently been tho death of Fhllomena,
aad afforded the key to all her troubles.
She had built a score or two of castles with
It, and they had all vanished Into air. She
was four hundred dollars boblnd with her
landlady. Bho has sundry little accounts
oat to the amount of two thouiaud dollan
or so, run up with good-natured tradesmen,
who were taken la with the report of her
being an heiress. Fhllomena played tho
helress-dodga very successfully. It paid
better than literature, which has left her a
long way behind. Fhllomena drew a clip
plog from her portmonle, and gave It to my
friend, saying It was an extract from tho
Horn TrutivttUr, It described Fhllomena
as tho "beautiful and accomplished author-
and aald she would favor tho public
with a reading at an early day. Dolter, her
friend, she said, wrote It, and she wished be
had left the beautiful out. Tbo truth was,
Fhllomena wrote It herself, and a dozen
more Justltkett, and gave Bolter no peace
until he put them In. "Perhaps," said she,
condescendingly, "you will be ktad enough
to do mo a similar favor la the Dup Thlnltri
It will assist la keeping me before tho pub
lic, you know, and 1 propose to give a read
lag from tua poets.
Of coarse mv frisadeonld not resist, and
tbafore many days hat paiied the Dup
Thlnktr endorsed what the Ifanu Truth-
Utler had said of Fhllemsna'e beauty and
talents. Fhllomena travels on ksr beauty
as well as her pretensions. Wbatsrer she
underiakss Is taoroughly "walked Into."
8he now proposes to delight the great pnb
lie with a reading. The great public cares
aethlng for readings, and won't go a step to
hear amateurs. Fhllomena knows this.
Dot she Is resolved to glvethe readier. Dat
there are always varleus difficulties la the
way. The Inexorable landlord must have
his rent In advaaee. Fhllomena gets up a
subscription, and calls on certain dlgnlta
rics, of whom she demanis tribute In names
and money. Shsmakss aspsclalty of Con
gressmen and Cabinet Ministers. Ihcre is
no such thlsg as resisting ksr chirms and
ksr pretty Import unities. Those who will
not giro tea dollars she lets off with five.
M!ss Fhllomena sails the paper sho holds In
her hand a roll-list of her friends. Through
dint of perseverance Fhllomena scrapes to
gether about f 300. I doubt If sho ever gave
a reading. To tell the real truth, I admire
Fhllemena. I admire her for writing her
self dowo tho "beautiful aud accomplished
authoress." I admire her for the victories
she galas orsr irrepressible editors and
Congressmen Jast from tho country. X ad
mire her for tho way she drives a bargain
for fame. Bha gives modesty tbe cold
shoulder better than aoy other woman
within my knowledge.
Fhllomena, being In want of dry goods,
plays hsr charms off on certain Impressible
tradesmen, who have a weakness for getting
Into society. Bho makes the acquaintance
of ilr. Qreenenougbj through a friend who
has a boarding-house acquaintance with
Mm. Greenenough la struck with Fhllo
mena artless manners, and tbo result Is a
dsspsrate flirtation, aha brloglog all her bat
terles to bear on Orsonenonghs weakest
points, areeuenougu. believes tho girl la
lovo with him. Invites her to the opera,
makes ber certain little presents. IIo Is proud
of tho prospect of getting Into literary socl
ety. But Fhllomena carea nothing for his
heart. Her bead aad heart aro on his silks
and shawls. Ho gives Fhllomena an Invita
tion to look In at his place of business somo
fine day. Exactly what Fhllomeua wanted.
Bho looked In one dayj waa so delighted with
his stock of silks, aud made such a selection.
Tho bill was only two hundred dollars, and
Mr. Qreeuenough waa good enough to send
It homo with the goods. Moro than that,
he was kind enough to tell the messenger to
say U waa no matter about the money now.
The end of tho quarter would do.
"I admire Greenenough," says Fhllomena,
to herself) "bo will not bo eo ungallant as
to press payment, even If I don't pay him
then."
In another week Fhllomena makes tho ac
quaintance of Mr. Dawes, tbo Jeweler, and
cuts Greeneooogb and his dry goods dead
She Is sore to do Dawes out of a fine set of
diamonds, and then cut him. Bbe will then
make the acquaintance of a friend at Brown
it Robinson's.
Fhllomena has been busy for some time
getting up a testimonial to hsreslf. She has
got a document of great length, setting forth
Ike desires of the many frit ads who want
to get up this tsstlmoulal to her. Fhllomena
wears a doable veil, sbs u so modest Tbo
testimonial hangs fire for a time. Her
friends do net coma np to time. Bo she sots
her doabl veil, pals hsr own shoulder to
the wheel and resolves there shall bo no
break down to tbe testimonial. Sbs pajs
her respects to certain distinguished gentle
msu and "public characters." Such men
are very auaceptlble to female Influences.
Sho stale her business In the most winning
manner) points Mr. Amiable, a dlstU
gnlshed politician, to what tbe Dally
Jiloatr aaysln pralso of her. Mr. Amiable
expresses oVJsctloei does not like to havo
his name brought before tbo public so fre
quently. Ho la requisted dally to become
the great father of a testimonial, and begins
to think all Washington eogatrd in similar
enterprises Ho really docs noi know what
to do. Would Uie to assist tho young lady
thus energetically trying to support herself.
FhUonlTcnativercomcs all Mr Aralable's ob-
. ... - ..'V.. .. i
Jectlons, and firAlIy succeeds In carrying off
his namo and tribute to tbe amount of 990.
A mere trifle, says Fhllomeua, for so high
an official.
Fhllomena writes now and then for tho
Baaday papers. It Is "horrid drudgery,"
sho says, and they only pay her a dollar a
column. These starvation prices sho de
clares enongh to send a young and unpro
tected female to destruction. I havo mora
than onco thought a dollar a column moro
than Fhllomena's efforts ta tho Sunday
papers worth. I, howsrer, confess not to
bo a good Judgo of the value of such
writing.
Miss Fhllomena Is an excellent Judgo of
mankind, aad knows exactly how to btlog
a Congressman down, ustng tho artillery of
her eyes. She writes the most dulcet letters
to gentlemen of reputed wealth and gal
lantry, requesting an Interview at soma ap
pointed place. There Is a dash of mystery
la Fhllomena's notes, which excites tho
curiosity of the gallant gentleman. She Is
snro to effect tho desired Interview, at which
she presents hersslf fortified with a double
veil. Fhllomena has a dozen apologies to
offer for meeting gentlemen at such places,
and opens the budget of her distresses. Bho
took advantage of the gentleman's well
known liberality, sho says, to request an In
terview, tho object of which Is to solicit his
aid In getting up the testimonial her friends
havo designed. The gentleman expected a
very different meeting with a Tory different
object. He is surprised and disappointed at
tho turn affairs haro taken, and begins to
wish himself at homo In tho bosom of his
family. "I have heard, sir," says Fhllo
meua, "how ready you were to assist a fe
male la distress, and knowing your great
wealth, thought you would llko to assist
my friends with your namo and a trifle say
one hundred dollars " Hero Fhllomena
raises her second veil.
Tho gentleman Is perplexed at finding
himself la a public saloon, known to seven
tenths of the visitors, and with a lady, under
suspicious circumstances. lie makes van
ous apologies, none of which Fhllomena
seems inclined to accept. Tho trifle sho re
quires would not he felt by tho gentleman,
considering his great wealth j and then there
are tho names of Wllklns, Jenkins, Hsrman
and Ferklns, all friends of his. Ills namo
will remove tho great mountain of all her
troubles, and set her firmly on her literary
feet. This Is a punishment tho gentleman
did not eipecti but she makes a breach In
the fortress of his sympathies, which ho re
pairs with his namo and fifty dollars. The
gentleman la glad to get off at that, Is dis
appointed at the character of the Interview,
and, swearlog never to bo caught In such a
trap agalo, they hare a cream together, and
Fhllomena disappears chuckling over her
victory.
I wish Washington had an asylum, pro
vided with swearing machines, Into which
all our literary Fhllomcnas could retire, and
do tho stata some real service. A. C. F.

MrDtiaSm In the confusion which has
arisen In somo of tho public Journals about
estimates and appropriations and disburse
ments, tbs Impression has been created that
GtneralGrant'a administration has expended
mori money la the same time than Its Im
mediate predecessor. This is totally erron
eous, aa tho balance-sheet, on a comparison
of official figures, will clearly establish. Tbs
present Administration has been la power
nearly a year, and we can compare that
period with tho closing twelve months of
rreaident Johnson's administration, rrom
March 1, 1613, to March 1, ItCO, tbo total
reeelpts Into tho Treasury were a little over
9309,000,000-X avoid fractions for tbe sake
of perspicuity. Every dollar of this was ex
pended, and tho pnbllo debt for tho same
period Increased about 10,000,000, as appears
from the official publication of tbe Treasury
Department, thus showlog a total expendi
ture for tho year of three hundred and seventy-four
million dollars, (t 374,000,000.)
Tbo total receipts into tho Treasury for
the first year of General Grant's administra
tion, estimating for the few remaining days,
will amount to abont thrco hundred and
ninety-four million dollars, ($394,000,000.)
Out Of this sum total ilgtoy tiUBUnt have
been applied to the payment of the public
debt, thee leaving for the current expendi
tures of Government, Including Interest on
tho public debt, three hundred and fourteen
million dollars, ($314,000,000,) or ility mil-
tlont bis fAaa irm ixptndtt in thi tanu (imi by
rruuUnt Jotmfnt admlnlttttlton. These
figures aro taken from official records, and
thslr accuracy cannot bo questioned.
It will bo observed that tho receipts were
twenty-six millions ($34,000,000) more la
Genoral Grant's first year than la Mr. John
son's last year. Orer twenty million dollars
of this must bo credited to tho Internal reve
nue, which has been much more faithfully
collected for It will bo noted that this large
Increaso In amount has been derlrod from
diminished and contrscted sources of taxa
tion, many of tho taxes In force during a
part of the year 18GS-'C3 having been re
pealed before President Grant camo Into
office. Whether regard, then, bo had to the
fidelity with which the rereoae Is collected,
or tho economy with which It Is expenTltd,
tho comparison for tho past Is undeniably
and overwhelmingly In favor of the present
Administration.
For tho future tho fullest confidence may
bo Indulged. Tho House of Representatives
Is vigorously seconding the efforts made by
Mr. Dawes, the able and upright chairman
or the Appropriation Committee, to curtail
expenditure wherever It may bo donej and I
am very sure that for tho ensuing year Sec
retary Boutwell will exhibit a financial record
even moro satisfactory to tax payers than
that of tho year which is about to close.
Very truly, yours, J. Q. Blaimi

spondent of the New Tork bun. writing from
Bait Lake City on tho 11th Instant, states
that abont the 20th or this month Brlgbam
Toung and a few of tho higher dignitaries
would leavo that city on a tour Bout h , osten
sibly to pay a visit to tbe lower settlements,
but in reality to penetrate the lower portion
of tho Territory of Arizona, bordering on tho
Mexican line, and there ae'ect a new placo
of rendexrons for tho gathering of tbo Saints.
As soon as arrangements can be perfected,
all those who live in polygamy will bo re
moved from this section or tho country to
settle In this new State of Zion. As tho mala
object of tho Cullom bill Is to suppress poly
gamy, u win in iuis manner uo ueie&iou, iur
when the bill Is Passed there will bo no poly
gamy In Utah to oappress, and If Govern
