There is land enough in Texas to ge four acres to every man, woman and child in the United States. Thomas Jefferson was the only one cf our Preidents who never had any re ceptions at the White House. His daughters visited him but twice during liis residence there. The business men in Eureka have so crowded the Se ntinel columns with holi day advertisements as to necessitate ah apology from the paper for so little space being left for reading matter. Touching the Irish situation, Mr. Fronde; the historian says : " Despot ism is out of date. We can govern Ireland. Be it so. Then let Ireland be free. We cannot keep a people chained to be perennially wretched because it is inconvenient to us to keep order among them." A watchmaker in Switzerland claims t.t have made a watch which will run four years without Minding up On January 18th, 1879, he intrusted a lx containing two of his watches to the municipal authorities of Vouvry, bv whom the box was recently opened and the watches found going. When a Texas couple stood up to be married, the minister saw the handle of a pistol protruding from the bride groom's necket. and suarsested that r out of respect to the solemn ceremony, it be laid aside. The advice was heed ed. Then the bride demurely drew a ilawcrer from her bosom and tossed it co beside the other weapon. .Lucy Fowler, on Saturday, instituted uit against Wm. J. Crump, steward at the Executive Mansion, fer $10,000 damages for slander. She was employ ed as cook at the White House in July last, and alleges that she was discharged because Crump told Mrs. Garfield she was a thief and stole things from the Executive Mansion. She claims her reputation has been injured to the ex tent ef the damages. There are now vacant three hundred postoffices, with salaries so large tUat the President makes it a point to fill them instead of delegating the authori ty to the Postmaster-General, and the Department estimates that an average of five applicants for each office are now in Washington. Some twelve hundred disappointed would-be postmasters will therefore have to leave Washington shortly, disgusted with the Adminis tration and ready to desert to the De mocracy, or any other party, when they see even a remote prospect of getting office. The Old-Fashioned American ' Writers. They are dying out fast, these old fashioned American litterateurs, and we shall see few more of them ; to say the truth, they wt re an artificial product after all the careful tillers of a delicate exotic plant under an unkindly sky; but their writings had a plesant Old World flavor of their own, mixed with a certain indefinite undertone of some thing not European, yet eluding all at tempts at analysis, which made them pleasant morsels to roll upon th e criti cal tongue when a man had nothing more serious to occupy him. One can hardly say wherein the peculiar humor and pathos of Washington Irving dif fered from anything English, but they did somehow differ, and it was just that difference which gave them their spe cific value. In Mr. Lanman though we must honestly confess longo intervallo one still tastes something of the same indescribable ert The Beef Bonanza. The magnitude of the cattle-raising in this country is something that can hardly be estimated, but the land de partment of the Union Pacific Railroad is gathering facts which show its sur prising growth. The shipments ef cat tle over that road this season will reach 170,000, over 100,090 having already passed through Omaha, and these most ly from Nebraska, The best of the high-grade beef cattle pass through direct to Europe. . - WAKlllNTOX LKTTEB. 1 From our Regular Cirra?por.Jent. Washington, D. C, December 7. At no time since the war bas Congress assembled under such favorable auspices as the present. We have no foreign troubles to annoy us and are confronted with nothing but peace and prosperity at home. The financial condition of our country is better than ever before and there are no disturbing questions of any sort to be considered. All branches of Government are under con trol of the same party, yet the lines of demarcation between the two great par ties are so faint, and the majorities in each branch so weak, that political leg islation in its narrow sense will not form a potent factor in the proceedings of Congress. Barring the new appor tionment for members of the House, in accordance with the late census, there does not seem to be an political i.ssue worthy of note and the one great object of congressional action must be the can vas, and determination of the best meth ods of maintaining the eounlry's pros perity and strengthening the founda tions of business vigor. Theopening day was a comparatively quiet one, though on the House side all the galleries were crowded. For one dny that body proved an attraction able to compete with the Gaiteau trial, but it could not keep it up. There were no especially sensational scenes to reward the curiosity seekers. A look over the House from the reporter's gallery dis closed the fact that it is composed of rather an unusually fine body of men graced by a number of old familiar faces whom the fortune of joli tics had again returned to the places from which they had once retired. Abram S. Ilewett is cne of the most prominent of these and he does not appear to have changed much since I last saw him on the floor, except, perhaps, the wrinkles' on his brow have deepened somewhat Holman, of Indiana, the great objector and economist, whom so many hoped had permanently left the service of his country, has come back to plague all jobbers. Kassoh, of Iowa, does not ap pear to have changed or aged or lost any of his easy, alert manner since he left Congress four years ago. There are many regrets that he failed to cap ture tne speakership, lor nis superior qualifications for the place are univer sally acknowledged. Only a few feet in front is the seat so long occupied by the late President. Mr. Taylor, the sue cessor of Garfield, is a meek-looking person with an iron-gray beard. No little interest is centered around the Virginia Readjustee, Paul and Faulk- erson. The former is on the brunette style of architecture, well built and or namented with a black moustache Both Voted with the Republicans. The Speaker-elect, General Keifer, is like Garfield, a self-made man. He fitted himself for the higher duties of life while working on a farm and ac quired an education by dint of hard la bor and hard study, but had scarcely begun his career when the rebellion broke out. He enlisted early in the war and fought to the end, winning the rank of Brigadier General and Com mander of a division. He has served two terms in Congress, and though not taking rank amongst the brilliant de bators, he has shown solid practical qualities that have given him a good standing in the House. The feeling that, because of the elevation of a citi zen of the East to the Presidency the Speakership ought to go West, contrib uted laigely to General Keifer's seclec tion. He started with much more strength than any other candidate, and, therefore, it was natural for the West ern members to rally aronnd him when it came to a choice between an Eastern and Western man. General Keifer un doubtedly had the support of what is termed the "stalwarts," but as his nomi nation was finally accomplished by votes outside of the stalwart combination, he will occupy an independent position, and probably his efforts will be to heal the breach in the Republican ranks rather than head a faction. The Com mittees will not be announced for two weeks, but it is generally believed that the two most important chairmanships, Ways and Means and Appropriations, will be given to Judge Kelly, of Penn sylvania, and Hisceck, of New York, respectively. One of the first things to be done in Congress will be their taking of some action with reference to the payment of the very heavy expenses i ncurred by the illness of the late President. It seems to be accepted that if Congress as sumes the payment of the civilian phy sicians, Drs. Bliss, Agnew and Hamil ton will not expect less than $25,000 each for their services. They consider, it is said, that the direct loss to them for inattention to their regular practice, expenses, &c, will amount to one-half of this sum. No bills, it is said, grow ing out of the care of the President during his illness have been rendered, although Mrs Garfield has in several instances requested that they be sent to her. Of course if Congress is to pay the bills, every one concerned will ren der much larger aeceunts than if Mrs. Garfield was to settle, and Dr. Bliss in timated that he and his associates would not take anything from Mrs. Garfield if the Government should not pay. The proposition which appears to meet the most favor is that Congress shall designate, or authorize the Presi dent to designate, one or more persons to act as a commission to audit all bills, which, on their report, shall be paid by the Secretary of the Treasury.
