[From our Regular Correspondent.] WASHINGTON, May 28 '86 The President's alleged matrimonal venture has given the country so much trouble that it is thought to be high time for him to make an official announcement in regard to the mat ter. It is quite certain the conflict ing reports that continue to circulate will not get their quietus in any other way. The whole world is interested in a lover, you know, and the President is a greater curiosity than ever since he is supposed to be about to commit matrimony. - Very large crowds at tend his tri-weekly receptions now, a great many more ladies being present than on former occasions. His face is sphinx-like as of old, but a feature of his last reception gave the gossips new food that will serve them for many a day. A lady caller summon ed up sufficient courage to congratu late him upon his approaching mar riage and he thanked her. The inci dent will have to be taken by sober minded people for what it is worth. The following bulletin of the Pres ident's condition was posted up at the white house this morning. 9 a. m., temperature, 98; pulse, 70; respir ation, normal. 10 a. im., unchanged; 11 a. m., the same; 12 m. ditto. No further facts could be ascertained from private secretary, clerks, door keepers, cook or chambermaid, and the few newspaper men, hack drivers and policemen standing about the porte-cochere of the President's house looked up at the silent facade and de cided that the wedding would cer tainedly take place when it occurs, if it ever does. Indeed so many stories are afloat regarding the President's marriage that it is difficult to tell what is true and what is mere guesswork. It is generally conceded that he intends being married very shortly after Miss Folsom's return from Europe. Be yond that.nothing definite is known. A report bearing upon this subject is afloat just now which seems based upon more reliable information than most of the others. It is that the President intends going to New York for the purpose of meeting Miss Fol som on her arrival. The only person who has the President's entire confi dence in the matter is supposed to be CoL Lamont who has all along been as close as an Egyptian mummy and has met all inquiries with the remark "Yes, I think it will rain." The country seat which Mr. Cleve land has purchased near this city cost him $21,500. It is an old stone house on one of the Georgetown hills, and commands a view of the Potomac al most as far down as Mount Vernon. It will need a good many repairs be fore'it is ready to be occupied by him. Ie is the third prominent purchaser of an ancient colonial house. Seere tary Whitney was the first, and Gen. Logan the second. Congress is giving attention to a great many things just now. Chi qese immigration, bogus butter, pen sions, the tariff, District of Columbia matters, the military academy, bank ruptcy, secret pessions, appropriation hills, laud forfeitures, the fisheries question, the shipping bill and other aubleets have come up for discussion 4urmg the present week. The most melancholy thing about the oleomargarine bill is, not that it is to pass in violation of the convic tions of a majority in both houses of congress. The house of representa tives has been cauvasad anl stands s t two to on. against the liill. Yet it j~:timated by those who are in a postion to know, that when it comes ksa vote, it will pass by a majority cf t least fifty. "We members know it, is wrg,'" said one of theI yesterday, "but we don't dare to 'ete against it That's the solomn f'ct. We are afraid otthe fall elections." Repr~eentati'vo Cartin of Penn., dc'. serves the thanks of the house of rep TSenta4ites or boldly defL iag one precedent i a'o agrssional e~iquette Whilhe speakliund.ebate, he was re -quesg ~by) tB-chair t- asupond his eamarks in order to dlow thetl Ieretay of the senate to deliver a message from that body. He declined, politely but firmly, to do so, and the secretary was obliged to wait till he had finished. The custom of both houses in this re spect is a courtesy of the emptiest sort. More than one fine flight of or atory has been spoiled by interrup tions for which there was absolutely n.- need. A message from the senate to the house is a pure formality, and its oral announcement could by dis pensed with altogether without dam age to any interest. Why, then, should it be permitted to mar the charm of a speech or break the force of a closely woven argument? Montana Mosquitoes. The St. Paul Globe is working up a reputation as a liar, only second to Eli Perkins. The following is its latest. "I was at Fort Keogh one summer not long ago, when an exqlosion oc curred in the boiler, which blow it some distance from the fort into a swamp. The men started after it. When they got there the mosquitoes were so thick that it was found im possible to work. The men got inside the boiler, and the mosquitoes punch ed their stingers right through the plated iron. The men clinched the bills on the inside and kept on clinch ing them until hundreds and hun I dreds of mosquitoes were fastened to the boiler. The men built a fire in side of the boiler to scare off the other mosquitoes, and the latter started to fly away. "Of course those that were fastened tried to fly with the rest, and actually carried the heavfboiler and the men out of the swamp and on dry land. After that it was no trick to haul the boiler into the fort. How did they get rid of the mosquitoes' bills? Why, they just filed them off close and left them there." -s John Jarrett of Pittsburg and Hen ry George of New York debated the tariff question at Music hall, Cleve land, last week. Snow to the depth of several inches fell in Vermont recently, and fears are entertained of serious damage to fruit by frost. The charges afiainst Rev. A. J. Scott of Evanston, Ill., have been withdrawn and that gentleman will centinue his ministerial work. Brattlebore, Vt., objects to having the statue of a soldier placed on her proposed soldiers' monument because of its commonness. Because of the pressure of public SiinaRE_ (nv. Hill will not be able to of its commonness. Because of the pressure of public business, Gov. Hill will not be able to attend the Decoration day exercises in New York. A passenger train on ths Vicksburg, Shreveport & Pacific railroad was de railed recently and the fireman and engineer badly scalded. The trinennial convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States will convene at Chica go Oct. 6, and continue three weeks. LThe Indians at Kootena,i B. C., have pulled up all stakes set by sur veyors, and Chief Isadore declared no more land shall be taken up by the whites. Several of the many wool dealers of St. Louis will hold an auction sale of 4,000 pounds of wool at the cotton and wool houses one day next week. The Indians at swift Current N. W. T., have defied their agent, who or dered them to their reservation, and a force of military has been ordered to the scene. Dr. W. O. Baldwin died at Mont gomery one day last week. He was among the emient physicians "of the country, and was president of the American Medical association in 1867. The adopted citizens of the Chero kee nation are petitioning the United States government to prevent the dis tribution of $300,000 lease money to Cherokees by blood only. A crevasse twenty feet wide and eight feet deep occurred in the levee below New Orleans in front of the Ducross plantation. It is likely that the vegetable crop on the plantation will be destroyed. A young man is living in Nebraska who is 26 years old, thirty-seven inches high and weighs but fifty pounds. He has lived at his present home for twenty years unbeknown to more than fifty people. A. E. Barr, chairman of the com mission charged with constructing a $190,000 prison in Connecticut, has resigned because the commission is given no discretiorary power, but is obliged to expend the full amount appropriated.
