The XXXtra session sensation lias subsided. Stripped of all verbiage, the issue in Virginia is, the Readjuster vs. the repu- diator. Tin: Bourbon party of Virginia are like pollywogs they are neither fish norfrogs. lint are prepared to swim in one direction or jump in the other, according to cir cumstances. Who will take the initiative in calling a meeting of the survivors of the Xew Orleans and Mobile squadrons of 1SC2. now in this city, to make arrangements to attend the unveiling of the Farragut btatue in a bodv? And now the Germans of Boston have feasted ex-Secretary Schurz. This may evoke the national fare question. It should be remembered, -however, that, whatever they may eat in Boston, there is no doubt that the highest type of human be-an is produced there. The advertisement, " furnished rooms 'in' a private family," is often noticed in the papers. The accommodations cannot he as spacious as they would be in the public family, which we presume the Departments might be called. But why "in" and not "with" a private familv? Questions and reply from the Capital: " The more we strive to elucidate this complex medley of incongruous problems the worse we get things mixed." Fourth column, fourth page. "I presume, un friend, that you will gather whatsoever impressions may please you from those concluding sentences." Fifth column, fourth page. Tin: survivors of the New Orleans and Mobile expeditions are requested to send their names and addresses to the Admi ral of the Xavy, D. D. Porter, in order to be served personally with invitations to attend the ceremonies of the unveilim: i of the Farragut statue on the 2od proximo. Editors throughout the country are re quested to notify and invite the gallant survivors, of the Gulf squadron of 18G2 to be present on the occasion referred to. Tun obstructionists have as usual given the Republicans the advantage gratis. Senator Mahone's speech to-day -will clearly reveal to the country the honesty and fairness of the Readjusters, and bring confusion to the Bourbon repudiators of Virginia. The Democratic Senators de serve thanks for giving Senator Mahone the opportunity to explain this question at a time and place where it will attract universal attention. Tun beautiful consistency of the Demo cratic press has an example in their arguments against keeping a reserve fund in the Treasury. "When resumption was contemplated no amount of gold short of the .outstanding circulation would do. jNow they say it is an " old fogy idea '" to keep any reserve. The fact is that at a safe figure twenty-five per cent, reserve "was enough then, and is none too little to keep on hand now. The Chicago Times has drawn out the Northern Democracy,andthe resultshows a decided majority in favorof keeping the good old name and standing by the grand old principles. The only new feature projected by the dear old patriots is that the "local question" of tariff is to be given the particular prominence in the next campaign. But they love the old name and will stick by it. There is only one thing to remark at the present time about the Northern Democrats. The Southern Democracy always dominated the pollywogs of the North, and always w ill. And the South is taking yes, has taken a new departure. John S. Clarke says that "Washington should have a theatre which should be equal in all its appointments to any in the country, and in size a little larger than "Wallack's. He thinks the best site would be either where the Quartermaster-General's Office now is, or the Corcoran building. It does seem as if some of our public-spirited citizens ought to move in this matter. Some years ago a public meeting was called to consider the subject of erecting an opera-house here, and a committee was appointed to select a site. "When the committee met it was found that ever- man'liad a lot that he wanted to dispose of, and, as the opera house could not be built upon all of the lots, the project fell through. The sites mentioned above could hardly be secured, but there are other eligible localities which might be made available, and the matter should be agitated without delay. The Senate Struggle. To-day will commence a struggle in the Senate for the maintenance of one of its chief prerogatives, viz: The right to choose its own officers. The minority suy that it will force the retention of' those officers who were chosen by the majority which came in two years ago, and which has now disappeared. Except the right to judge of the elec tion, qualification, and return of its own members the Senate has no prerogative which it regards as more sacred than its right to say what officers shall record its proceedings and maintain order under its direction. The result, no matter how long it may be postponed, will be as the majority has determined. General Slalione's Speech. If General jlahone is well enough to-day the Senate and the country will hear from him. He will give proper an swer to the ruffianly assaults made upon him for refusing to have his course marked out for him by his implacable enemies. He will give voice to the opinions and wishes of his constituents, and no one who hears him or reads his speech will be left in any doubt as to his honesty on State affairs or his patriotism in thing3 pertaining to the Nation. The President's Indiscreet Spokesman "We find it difficult to$hoose among the many conflicting statements put forth in those public journals which claim to speak by authority for the President concern iug the causes which led the Executive mind to the selection of Mr. Robertson as the generalissimo of the administra tion forces in New York. One journal had it that the New York Senators had quietly winked and silently nudged and mysteriously conspired for Robertson's appointment by way of pleasing the baker's dozen in the New YorkXcgisla ture who, representing all there was of the Republican opposition to Senator Conkling's leadership, were ashamed to be counted, and therefore hid their in significance safely out of sight among the so-called ' machine men " who voted for Mr. Piatt for the Senate. This we know to be false. Other statements, equally sill', are made, evidently to take away as much as possible the appearance of hos tile rudeness toward the New York Senators which seemed to characterize Mr. Robertson's nomination. "We pass these small efforts by, and come to the declarations made by the President's trusted friend, Mr. E. V. Smalley, in his dispatch from "Washington to the New York 7W6une,and which appeared in that journal on Saturday last. Mr. Smalley leaves no room to doubt that he thinks he knows of what he speaks. His manner is positive,, and authoritative to the point of Podsnap pianism. If he correctly understands the matter the President has all along in tended to " recognize all elements of the party which contributed to his success last fall," and to " do all in his power to heal the old factional fight," &c. In furtherance of this generous intention he has, says this friend, " made up his list of appointments from representative men of the two Republican elements in the State." The distribution among the " elements" strikes one as did the divi sion of the oysters where one side re ceived only the shells. However, we hoce there has not been a cool and delib erate effort to divide up the duties and responsibilities of public station as if they were the loot of the campaign. The Tribune, for which Mr. Smalley writes, has become so abandoned as a servant of the new machine that it talks loosely of "the extreme or nincompoop wing of civil-service leform theorists;" but let us hope that such depravity has not yet reached the "White House. Mr. Smalley felicitates his readers that, the spoils hav ing been divided between the "ele ments," ' if the factions continue to fight after this it will not be his (the Presi dent's) fault." If this is really by au thority it presents a gloomy view of the future. It ignores the vital question involved in Robertson's appointment, and simply counts noses, to see if the President has not appointed to office from the friends of Senator Conkling as many as from his enemies. The real question is very re mote from this. Mr. Conkling has never been an office-monger. The real objec tion to the appointment of Mr. Robertson is not that it was not giving an office to an adherent of that Senator, but that it was inviting all who want patronage to enlist in a political crusade for that Sen ator's destruction. This docs not interest alone the parties immediately engaged in the conflict. It need not be expected that the Republicans of New York will see their great leader dragged as a captive at the chariot-wheel of any chief outside of New York. Least of all will they obey the orders of Mr. Robertson, who swindled them out of the vote they intrusted him with at Ghicago. If these words are based on the truth, then there is great danger that the party in New York may suffer disaster in resisting the tyranny sought to be practiced upon it. It is this un necessary strain the party in New York is to undergo which should give the Presi dent pause. "We hope the Tribune corre spondent may find some time to investi gate and report upon this aspect of the case. But Mr. Smalley did not stay- his ex planation at the point we have reached. Stirred by the exhilarating atmosphere in which he moves, he could not resist the temptation to tell us why this blow had been struck. It was not necessary; but he makes love to his theme and rushes on to the true explanation. His harmony theory suffers in the supplemental story ; but then what matters that? The fan tastic and bewildering performances, com mencing with the invitation of Senator Conkling to Mentor to confer on public affairs, and winding up with a public and unmistakable manifestation of a hostility which was not and is not now admitted to exist, may fittingly receive conflicting explanations from the administration or gan. But let us hasten to the central truth to which Mr. Smalley's indiscretion treats us. He says : "Ah! but tho anti-machine men get the big place," say the malcontents. " Their best man i& put in the custom-house, and will control its vast patronage." Well, did any one suppose the ad ministration idiotic enough to put there oue of the S06 who decorated themselves with medals and pledged themselves at Chicago to keep up the con test for Grant until 1SS1? Self-preservation is the first law of nature, and no administration can be expected to put a sharp knife in the hands of a man who has taken a vow to cut Its throat at the end of its first term. Very naturally and very properly, say Republicans of all sorts save a few who cherish old resentments the President pre fers a man for collector at Jfew York who was his friend at Chicago, and the friend of the cause he represented, to one who was not. At the same time he shows by his selection of some of the most prominent Grant men for other important offices that he has no feeling of unfriendliness toward the element which opposed his nomination and afterward labored zealously and efficiently for his election. He stands as near to them as to any body, and they have his confidence and esteem; but in filling an office which might be made a powerful political agency he prefers one of his old friends to one of his new ones. We should be glad to be assured that Mr. Smalley is mistaken, and that those who favored the nomination of General Grant are not to be regarded by the Presi dent as subjects for proscription and out lawry. We know of no pledges to support Grant in 1884. If the men who voted for him soothed their disappointment by re joicings that they had not deserted him in the convention, who was harmed? Mr. Smalley cannot be giving us the true inwardness of the White House in the above extract. Self-preservation does not demand the hostility of the adminis tration to the 306 delegates to Chicago and the Republicans who sent them there. Must every friend of Grant's be regarded by the administration as "a man who has taken a vow to cut its throat at the end of its first term," and are they to be excluded from official honors as much as possible because the President has been made to believe that an office in such hands would be " a sharp knife" for hos tile use ? Who has poisoned, his mind with such thoughts, if any such" are there, as his friend Smalley seems-to suppose is the case? What other term than the firafc one can the administration be interested in? How can the administration have a throat to cut at the end of its first term? Is Mr. Smalley put forward to announce the candidacy of General Garfield for a second term within three weeks of his first in auguration? Is this the reason why " he prefers one of his old friends to one of his new ones in filling an office which might be made a powerful political agency?" What offices are "political agencies?" The clear glimpse we have been favored with by Mr. Smalley stimulates a desire for a more complete view. Let the light be turned on ! .There is another phrase in the I'ribune's dispatch which is suggestive. It is this: " The President prefers a man for collector at New York who Avas his friend at Chi cago, and the friend of the cause he repre sented, to one who was not." Now, who is the President? Mr. Robertson was Mr. Blaine's friend at Chicago. General Gar field was for Mr. Sherman, and was not himself a candidate. And then, as to "the cause he (the President) represented." What cause? AVas the recent campaign simplythebuildingupof a "cause "which had its limit ill the opposition of one side of the National Convention to the other?" Have General Grant's supporters been de ceived into a fight against themselves, and is this "the cause " which basso mightily prevailed? Either Mr. Smalley has placed the country under great obligations for a truthful and ingenuous expose of a most unexampled and remarkable political sit uation, or he has terribly misunderstood his friend the President, and most inju riously, though honestly, misrepresented him. We shall await with interest the ex planation of his explanation, hoping and trusting that the President's course will give no color of truth to the tale unfolded in the Tribune. If the Republicans could only play as good a hand for themselves as the Demo crats play for them there would only be one party in this country. PERSONALITIES.

The boy was walking with his tutor in the Tuileriea Garden, clad in a costume of some odd cut or color, that provoked tho ridicule of some passer-by with an eye for the comic. The young Xey quitted his tutor, walked up to the laugher, and, looking him straight in the eye, remarked : " You are a coward to ridicule a child who cannot challenge you." The, late Emperor of Russia, when a child, was well-beloved by the people. A corre spondent writes thus : " When in Russia in 182G, he was a handsome little boy, and used to walk the streets of St. Petersburg with a guard or two, the people following In crowds and trying to kiss the hem of his garments. I have seen peasants run before him and prostrate themselves on the pavement, so that he had to step one side for fear of trampling on them." It is said in disparagement of Colonel Forney's new novel that it is chiefly remarkable for its eccentric grammar. There was a similar peculiarity in the famous " Life of Hancock," but nobody ever called it a blera ish. It was one of the great beauties of that remarkable work. Avol canicgenius, under thespell of "articulate inspira tion," cannot afford to bother himself about so commonplace a thing as correct grammar. Any pedant can write correct grammar, but only For ney can emit " articulate inspiration." Tribune.

I cannot end this prosy dissertation on tppointments better than by telling an anecdote. It must be true, for I had it to-day from Murat HaUtead, who is here to oppose an extra session. During Lincoln's time there was a great row over the post-office in Major Bickham's town of Day ton, Ohio. Two Hotspurs were in the field. Peti tion after petition In favor of one or the other poured in. upon the President, and delegation after delegation hastened to Washington to argue the case. Mr. Lincoln was a long-suffering man, but his patience gave out at last. He could not determine that oue applicant was In the slightest degree more competent or more patriotic or better supported than the other. Finally, after being bored by a fresh delegation, he said to hissecrc tary: "This matter has got to end somehow. Bring a pair ol scales." The scales -were brought. " Now put in all the petition and Iettere in favor of one man and see how much" they weigh, and thcn'wefgh the other fellow's pile." It was found that one bundle was three-quarters of a pound heavier than the other. "Make out an appoint ment at once for the man who has the heaviest papers," saitT Mr. Lincoln, and it was done. E.

The Syracuse Journal says that " his Sunday-school teacher, Mr. Lattl more, inspired the boy to aim higher than carpen ter's work as assistant to his father, and gave him instruction in Latin, which the boy learned at night after handling carpenters' tools through the day. After a year or two of study his teacher advised him to learn short-hand. To this art he applied his patience and industry, always practising at night after the day's labor. Thus he worked on, till at length he was employed by Garfield to write for him evenings. Proving expert, he was engaged to go to Mentor, where he survived the siese of office-hunters ; and now, having followed good advice, he moves up to a salary of S3.200 per year. Xt Slakes a Difference. " Yousee, I was going up in the Wood ward avenue car," explained the old man, "and a passenger got in and trod on my awful corns. I was so shocked and surprised that I yelled out, 'Damn it!' before I could check myself. Every woman rose up in the car in horror, and two or three of the men said I ought to be run out. Well, the next night I was at the theatre and one actor said damn you !' and every woman giggled. Then another said 'damn me!' and every woman laughed. Then a third said 'damn her!' and he brought down the house. How it comes about I don't know, but it seems to make a heap of differ ence where you are when you kick an old hat with a stone under it." Mr- Carljle a Ilocr. " There is a story current," says the London Cuckoo, " that the late Mr. Carlyle was a terrible domestic tyrant. At breaklkst time he would come down grumbling, and, glancing at the well-spread board, declare the food to be unfit for a dog.

'Presently, when the philosopher was beginning to get desperately hungry, hi spouse would order the same dishes to be brought back, which her husband immediately proceeded to de vour with infinite relish and without any more ado.

MounfBaker, in Washington Territory, which has been inactive for nearly twenty years, is in eruption again. A dense volume of smoke is coming from the mountain, while hot cinders, ashes, and lava are being thrown from its crater. At nizht it pours forth streams of fire which il lumine the heavens for miles. As yet the flow of lava i3 not sufficient to indicate any danger. The eruption is said to be a magnificent sight, as the mountain looms up to the height of twelve thou sand feet, aud is covered withsuow half-way down its side. Soutu Carolina's 3IunIorer. It is pleasant to learn that Colonel E. B. Cash, who shot Colonel Shannon in a South Caro lina duel, acted like an "entire gentleman" throughout the affair. The second of Shannon tes tifies to tills, and r.dds a feather to Cash's cap by saying that no proposals were made for settlement by anj body. The party came to shoot and not to reason, and both behaved in the most gentlemanly manner. As Cash's gun was best aimed, of course Cash was"vight in the quarrel aud Shannon wrong. This is Sojith Carolina logic. -' A Sciv Koal to Annapolis. Mr. Theodore Monroe, of Annapolis, Md., is now in Chicago, endeavoring to form a companjrto construct a railroad from Washington, D. C, to Annapolis. The length of the road would be twenty-three miles, through level eountry, and it is said that the proposed route was once surveyed by George Washington. If the road is constructed the trade from the West now entering Baltimoro might to some extent be diverted to Anuapolis, through which port it can bo exported at less cost than from Baltimore. A Dreamer. Charles Wynn writes to a St. Louis paper that I dream of the days of our early love, When all the world was fair to see ; Whenthe stars shone bright with a magic light, And I was all in all to thee. .

A Hint to the STIhtlists. Gilhooly asked a Galveston lawyer what he thought of the assassination of the Czar. "Well," replied the Galveston lawyer, stroking his chin, and looking as wise as three or four Solo mons, "I think the man who did the shooting ought to have a change of venue on account of public prejudice against him. I'd get him out of the scrape if he was over here, aud had plenty of money." ft liitlle Indians. When little Indians learn, as they do at Carlisle, to make harness for the United States army, instead of stealing Government horses, it is worth making note of. A few weeks ago fifty sets of double harness, made by Iudian boys in the Carlisle school workshops, were sent to the army by Government order. 9 ITInlionc.

General Grant aud Cerro Gordo YVilUaius. General Grant is quoted "by the Lex ington (Ky.) Transcript as telling a "rather grimly funny story concerning General Cerro.Gordo Will iams. He said that when he and Williams were in 3Iexico they were on one occasion, after the surrender of the city, on a frolic, and that Williams had a fine thoroughbred Kentucky mare and he (Grant) an Indian pony, which they were running at full speed down the streets of the city; that Williams naturally outran him, and that in run ning down the street he met a Mexican, who had a pole across his shoulder, "with a jug hung on each encLof it, in the common style of carrying water in that country; that Williams ran against the jug and knocked the man down with great violence. Grant said he looked back and noticed that a crowd had gathered around the fallen man, and rode back to see what was the matter, when he found that the man was dead. Grant adds that he never told Williams anything about it, because he kuew that It would make him feel uncomfort able, and he believed he did not intend to 'kill him; but we suppose he would admit that General Williams took the chances on doing so, that he might have a little innocent fun. This story was told by a devoted admirer of General Grant as an instance of Grant's indisposition to make a man feel uncomfortable unnecessarily. Died Wlille "lValtxIusr. About half-past two o'clock Wednesday a sudden and startling death occurred In the midst of a ball at Washington Platform. A waltz was being played and the dancers were enjoying themselves and thinking only of pleasure, when suddenly one of the merriest of the company was seen to fall heavily to the floor. The men in the party approached the prostrate body, fast growing cold in death, and, picking It up, placed their late companion upon a number of chairs arranged for the purpose. The deceased was John C. Moore, a cavalry sergeant, engaged in the cavalry recruit ing service, and was stationed at the United States rendezvous at 219 West Fourth street. He was lately arrived from Philadelphia. Ono of the rev eler did.hls utmost to Induce thejiolice to remove the body irom the hall so that the dance could be continued.- At the time of his sudden and fatal fall the young man was waltzing with Miss Lizzie Maudler, of 117 West Eighth street. She was seen sitting in the hall as oue stunned at the sudden catastrophe. Cincinnati Special. Tlie Xeir Secretary ot tho S'avy. William H. Hunt, just seated in the Cabinet, is now probably fifty-six or fifty-eight years of age. He is a man rated at the Louisiana bar as possessed of the most brilliant Iogal attain ments. He is spoken of as a polished, affable gen tleman, of pleasing address; is personally and de servedly popular wherever known, no Is a man of the most unexceptionable private character. He was one of the few old-line Whigs who could never be made over into a Democrat. He is be lieved to have never voted the Democratic ticket in his life. He early identified himself with the Louisiana Republicans. He was elected upon the Republican ticket with Governor Packard to the position of State attorney-general. He has resided now for some time in Washington as one of the judges of the Court of Claims. The Hon. William H. Huut, Secretary of the Navy, is thus seen to have come from the right stock. Chicago Tribune's iVfw Orleans Correspondence. c An Interior Department Appointment. To the alitor of The SepubUcan ; The first appointment made by Secre tary Kirkwood was that of a watchman, a man named Conner, from the Navy-Yard section of the city, who was a howling Democrat during the late campaign, and who has never been anything else. Conner was recommended for the position by the Hon. Hiram Price, of Iowa. Whether he is credited to Iowa or not " we do not know. We do know, however, that he never saw Iowa. Secretary Kirkwood was waited upon and in formed of the facts about Conner's political status by a delegation of the East Washington Garfield and Arthur Club. The Secretary wanted to know if there was anything against Conner's moral character. This the delegation declined to dis cuss, and went away disgusted. Now, Mr. Editor, there is no doubt about Conner's politics. He is not a Republican, not a Readjuster, not a luke warm Democrat; he Is simply an Ignorant Bour bon, and while the young men of East Washington were doing splendid campaign work for Garfield and Arthur he was howling for Hancock. He is rewarded with an office at the earnest recommendation of a stalwart member of Congress from Iowa, while earnest Republicans and cx-Unien soldiers and sailors are out of em ploymentsome actually starving. These are solid facts; and, while the matter may be a small one, it nevertheless should be righted by Secretary Kirk wood, whom we have always looked up to as a Stalwart Republican.

To the Editor of The Republican : Will you be kind enough to grant space in your columns to the following denial of an ar ticle which appeared in this morning's Post under the caption of " Mahone Denounced." The article states thaf'thc Conservative Readjusters of Alex andria held a meeting in their club rooms.on last Wednesday night" and adopted resolutions "de nouncing Mahone for the course pursued by him in the United States Senate." It also states that Mr. J. C. Mottcr offered the resolution.? and "made an address in support of them." I am a member of the Readjuster Club of Alexandria, and know the statements to be entirely false in every par ticular. Our regular meeting was held last night, and not on Wednesday night No resolu tions denouncing Mahone's course were adopted. On the contrary, we are aU in entire sympathy with the man whose Democratic principles, unlike those of the Bourbons, are of that type which rec ognizes "the greatest good to the greatest num ber." Lastly, Mr. J. C. Motter, who is represented as having offered the resolutions and " made an address in support of them," is not a member of the club, he having been expelled some time since. If any such resolutions were passed in this city, or in fact anywhere, the Funder Democrats are responsible for them, and not the Readjusters, as the article states. J. II. MONTGOMERY, Republican Readjuster. Congratulations. To the Editor of Tlie Republican: So " William E. Chandler is partisan," is he? That means, we suppose, that he believes in Republican principles and sticks to them. To be non-partisan is to get elected as a Republican and then adopt the principles of the other side! We all know how we like that by this time. Wise men have said that if women entered political life they would be more partisan than men. No one denies their higher moral sentiment. We con gratulate Mr. Chandler upon the possession ot the leminine element of partisanship. With a few such men in our highest places the country would know w here it stood. A WOMAN . Commendable Philanthropy. To the Editor of The Republican: In view of the hardship a celebrated " detective" has undergone in having to "double quick" after a certain carriage while in pursuit of his favorite profession, tho clerks of the Pension Office, who thoroughly understand and appre ciate his gentlemanly employment, have gen erously decided to' "chip in" and purchase a velocipede, to enable him to make "upgrade" to Michigan, as they deem his services entirely too valuable to be thrown away upon the Govern ment.
