WASHIN;TON L.ETTEH. [From our hegolar Corresponlent.] WAsmHNrTON, May 30. 1885. This is a favorite season for a visit to Mount Vernon. The quaint old homestead is even lovelier now than in mid-summer. Thu association of ladies who manage the W ashington estate have been in annual session there for inore than a week, and the steamer that plys the Potomac daily between this city and the tomb of Washington. has been crowded with pilgrims. It was in 1858 that Col. John Washington sa that Mount Vernon would ha.e to go by the auc tioneer's hammer if something couhd not he done to save it, and here comes in the romance of Mount Vernon. A woman who had been a confirmed in valid from girlhood, raised a fund of a2 )0.00t) and ea111odied a plai which gave the home and tom 'b of Georg: Washington to the nation. This was Miss Cinninghain. of South C'arojina. She had visited the -pot in her child hood, and when c smpelled to give u all of life except that which could be I enjoyed in a sick room, the project of buying Mount Vernon inspired her. It was a singular linstallce of energy and perseverance. From her sick bd she aroured an enthusiasm. e.pecially among southern Xwomen, which result ed in splendid sucess. Edward Ev erett caught her enthusia.m, and his lecture on Washington. delivered in different cities, brought money to the Mount Yoernoo fund. She interested Madam' Le Veot. and Mrs. Cora M-twatt Ritchie. and in 186-) her work ha 1 he en accomplish 5: the house. the tomb, the farm of Washington, including two hundred ares of land, belonged to a national association. The Legislature of Virgiiia granted a charter to the association in perpu tuity, and no disposition of the prop erty can be inna'e without the consent of the Legislature. None of tLe Washington family were afterwards interred at Mount Vernon. The key vault was thrown into the Potomac river. Within the brie: vault there are twoa marble tomubs, those of George arnd Martha Wathington. One looks at them throough open iron work, and "hat.; oTl" is the rule at the grave. Aruntn these t;;mbs is a wooden f o r intg, which if stepped upon starts an electric alarm at the hoise. During the bloodiest days of tho, war, Mount Vernon was treated as neatralgroan 1. and soldiers of both armies met 1n11 der the trees that overhang the to:nb. The different States each have charge of a room, so far as the rooms in the old iiinsion hold out in nim ber. The lady managers are called Regents. and the Regent of each State Ins b)een instrumiental ini hav jug its restored and refurstished 115 nearlyas p ;s sible in the style that pr;' vailedi at :.Jliit \ernon during G;'n. Washington's lifetimne Many of his original article of furniture have been gathered up1 and placed there again and many relics of revolution ary times may he seen in the various rooms. Hanging in the entrance hall is the key of the Bastile sent to Gen. Washington by La Fayette, arid over the door of the dining room is Wash ingto s's field glass. said to have been hung on its peg by his own hand and naver sinco rem wed. The curious mar >1e hearth and mantel in the din ing r >om were sent from France. On the way, the ship bearing the gift was captured by ptiraites. When they found the umarbile was intended for Washington, they landed it on the American shore. In a little drawing room is the harpischord almost us large as a modern p~iano1, which Wash ington gave to Nellie Custis as a wed ding present. The attic room which Martha Washington occunied after Gen. Washington's death, becautoe it commanded a view of the tomb, is in almost the identical condition in which she left it. Only one boat is allowed to land sight-seers at Mount Vernon. The round trip fee of one dollar foots up handsomely at the end of a year. In the past year 18,000 persons visited the place. The green houses are aL o a source of reveoue, a few flowers be ing a favorite relic of the spot. There is some complaint. that the managers of Mount Vernon are making too much money, and that they do not sa end their revenues wisely. How ever that may be, it costs considerable to keep the estate up in its present orndition. During the coming year extensive repairs will have to be made oa the roof and foundations of the house, the tomb is to be drained and a new wharf made, involving in all an outlay of about $6,000. The R3gents say that they do not mind unkind critieisms for the fact that the place was never before so attractive, never so meuic v=iite 1. Subecribc for the T'." SPRAY OF THE FALLS.

Theates, June 8, 188i. Editor Tarncsx: At the late meeting of the Board of County C'on iusioners the Great Falls township was established and tIeorge E. !illy was appointed Justice of the Peace. This township i, hounded by the south boundary of the county. Box Elder creek and the Missourt river. A school district was established with the same boundaries, to he called ,Number Nine." Mlessrt. Blankenbakor, Rolfe and Allen were appolm.t41 viewers to lay out the rutad easterly t:ome Central Avenue to Robert Blankenbaker's place on Box El der and thence to led Coulee. Actlna', upon the new road via Bull's Head was delayed temporarily, -the com aidestaner frothSinRtIher havlng oppsed. We hope, however, no sectional feeling will inter fore with this matter. It is a matter of benefit tothe whole county and is desired by a large numiber of citizens who pay no small amount of the taxes, and who have the right to ask that their share of taxes he applied as they desire. *** MdNTANA WfOLS. We are in receipt of a circular from - the wool coumiission hotme of Walter Brown & Co., in which they say: 'Our representatives in ).ontaina, Vymoinuiag, B (iliorai o, and other Territories, report an 01 improved condition of the wool over last tl year. Particularly is this the case in Met: tana where last year there was an unusual P ainolut of weak stapled wool, whereas this year, so far as we have learned, the wool is sound and will prove very desira hie as a substitute for eastern tfceces. The most important feature in the wools from this Territory, is the establishing during the past season of the ine delaine grade, which heretefor.' the worsted mills lhav. felt could ontly be obtained from washed fIleecs. As this selection coo:mands from two to three cents per pound more tin:n the clothing wools, the iierease in the average price obtained will be readily op. n preciated. The importance with wti Ich ft Montana wools are now regarded by man- fr ufacturers and t In' wool trade generally, has led as to classify them separately in p our q uotationis: CHOICE.
