WaiTawaiaa Valley, 1kd , 1841. WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, D. C, 1 June 27, 1878. Representative Atkins, chairman of tbe Committee on Appropriations in the House, gives the following account of the eleven appropriation bills. "The regular estimates are 1 176.000. 000 for the eleven bills. The ' House Appropriation Committee reported them at $145.773103, a reduotion be low the estimate of $30,000,000. The House added $1,914,636 making them aggregate $147,687,739, and in that shape they passed the House and went to the Senate. The Senate Appropu ation Committee reported them to tbe Senate with an iuorease ot $8,228, 765 and the Senate added $5,835, 765 or $14,04,510 over the sum ot the bills as they passed the House and $15, 976,146 over the sum of. tbe bills as they were first reported to the House by the Committee on Appropriations The House Confererence Committees were enabled to to reduce the grand total as they passed tho Senate by the sum ot $4,G51,436, leaving as the grand total of the appropriations for the next fiscal year of $157. 200,833." Thia bears out, in a remarkable manner, all that has been said in this correspondence of the comparatively economical ideas of the House. That body, to be sure did not do all it should have done, or all that was expected of it, but these figures show clearly that the Republican Senate was the princi pal sinner in the matter of extravagant expenditures. Mrs. Jenks has accomplished two thmes in a short space of time She has convinced every man. woman and chilh in Washingtnn that she don.t know any difference between truth and falsehood, and she has frightened Ben Butler. Butler does not fear any phy sical danger from the woman, hut the magnitude of her falsehoods and the facility with which she invents them have startled and frightened him. He studies her. This expierenced crimi nal lawyer haa neve seen the equal of Mrs. Jenks 1 be Jenks as she is now called. He has attempted to bull-doze every other witness, but treats Mrs. Jenks with courtesy and conderation due to Kcoius. Manv persons, who were before doubtful, are convinced, since Mrs. Jenks finished her testimony, that Sherman wrote the infamous letter which gave to the Republicans of Louisiana the courage to steal tbe State. Her statement that she dictated the letter is improbable, and is contra dicted by other parts of her testimony, Marshall Pitkin the uy Dear Pitkin" of Gen. Butler was examin ed yesterday and Monday, but told lit tle which bears out upon the merits of the case. Tbe sub-Committee will go to Louisiana in a day or two. Tbat noblest Koman of them all, Gov. Hendricks, was here for few days thia week, nis name gave strength to tbe Democratic ticket ia 137C and may again in 1SS0. Rex. Five cases of sunstroke occurred near Terrell in one day Tliej RoBtte'e cUatllerjr. Of cours) Mr. Hayes knew nothing of the frauds rhat placed him in Presi dent Tildcn's seat, nor bad he tbe least personal acquaintance with tho indi viduals who perpetrated them, and yet see how many of them he has .made speoial cases of: JUr. JNoyes.wbo divided tbe swag among the Florida thieves was made minister to France. Mr. Stougbton, who conferred with Anderson and other Louisiana cul prits, was mado minister to Russia Mr. Kasson, who was one of the visiting statesmen, and helped stoal the Florida vote, was made minister to Austria. Mr. MoLin, who confesses that he helped steal the Florida vote, was made chief justice of New Mexioo. . Mr. Dennis, who confessed to the frauds that made it possible for MoLin to steal tho Florida vote, was appoint' ed, on tho speoial request of Hayes, whicn was written witn a' blue pen cil," a special treasury agent. Governor Stearns, who held the fort while Cowgill and MoLin stole the Florida vote, was made one of the Hot Springs commissioners. Mr. Cowgill, who completed the theft of the Florida votes, was made a United States marshal. Thus Noyes. Kasson, McLin, Den nis, Stearns and Cowgill, through and by whom the tour votes of Florida were stolen from President Tilden, have been recognized by Mr. Hayes as "special casos" and rewarded accord' ingly. . William Pitt Kellogg, for helping to steal the vote of Louisiana by braoing up the returning board with such su pervisors as Anderson, reoeived a seat in the Senate, towhiohhe had no title, through the single vote .ofStanley Matthews, the friend and reprcsenta tive of Mr. Hayes. S. B. Packard, who helped Kellogg steal the Louisiana vote, received the biggest consulate in Europe. Georgo L Smith! who forged and fal eified the returns of Do Soto parish, was made collector of New OrleaDF. Jack Wharton, wbo assisted, was made marshal of New Orleans. Madison Wells, who was one of the thieves whom Kellogg braced up, was given the office of surveyor of the port. Tom Anderson, who was another re turning board thief, was kept in office as acting collector, even after his con viction of forgery and theft. This was a very special case. Caesanave, the third returning board thief, was made naval officer. Kcnner, the fourth and last return ing board thief, perjurer and forger, was given a place in the custom house under chief thief Anderson. Gen. John M. Harlan, who was one of the referees in in the Feliciana Anderson case, was made Judgo of tbe United States Supreme Court. George A. Sheridan, for helping to keep the returning board thieves stiff, was transplanted to Washington and made recorder of deeds. Dan Webber, who, at tbe request of John Sherman, stolo the vote of West Feliciana, was promised in writing a consulate, but was killed before he could be appointed. J. E. Anderson, for complying with John Sherman's request to the extent of signing a protest be knew to be false, and which was afterward forged to the extent necessary to steal the parish of East Feliciana, was person ally and in writing recommended b) Mr. Hayes for "consulate in a warm place." A score of clerks, supervisors, con stables and others, who helped forge or cover np others' forgeries, have all been provided for, but thooe we have enumerated were "rpecial we.." Still we have no doubt that Mr. Hares was perfectly innocent, and that those) ap pointment were all accidents. Wak imgfon 1'vtt.

It so fell out that a young coup, le became very muoh smitten with each other as young people do. The young woman's father was a wealthy Quaker; the young man was respeotable.' Tbe father could stand no suoh union, aid resolutely opposed it, and the dared not disobey, tbat is to say, she dared not disobey openly She "met him by moonlight," while she pretended nver to see him ; and she pined and wasted in spite of herself. She was really in love a state of sighs and tears, which women oftener reaoh in imagination than in reality. Still the lather re mained inexorable. ' Time' passed on, and the rose on Ma ry's damask cheek passed off. She let, not concealment like a worm in the bud prey on that damask cheek, however; but, when her father asked her why she pined, she always told him. Tbe old man was a widower, and he loved his daughter dearly. Had it been a widowed mother who had Mary in oharge, a woman's pride would never have given way before tbe importuni ties of a daughter. Men are not. how ever, stubborn in such matters, and when the father saw that his daugh ter s Heart was really set upon the match, he surprised her one day by breathing out: "Mary, rather than mope to death. thee had better marry as soon aa thee chooses, aid with whom thee pleases." And then what did Mary? Wait till the birds of the air had told her swain of the ohange, or until her fath er had time to alter his mind again? Not a bit of it. She clapped her neat plain bonnet on her head, and walked directly to the house of her lover as tbe street would carry her. She walk ed into the house without knocking for knocking was not then fashionable and found the family just sitting down to dinner. Some little oommo tion was exhibited at the heiress in the widow's oottago, but she heeded it not. John looked up inquiringly. She walked directly up to him, and took both his hands in hen. "John," said sho, "father says I may havo thee." And John got directly up from tho dinner table, and went to tbe parson's. In just twenty-five minutes they were man and wife. A young gentleman of Prairie Grove, Texas, proposed to his lady lore, but was gently refused. He went a sec ond and third time with the same re sult. But at length he rode over one evening and told her he would neither eat, sleep, nor speak until she convent" ed to become his bride. She invited him to dinner: he shook his head. She talked on ; he merely looked de jected. Then she requested him to take supper; a negative shake of the head was the only reply. She played, sang and cnatted on till bed time, when a Servant showed him a room ; negative shake. She tripped away to ber chamber; he sat determined still. About 12 o'clock she came back and said, "I don't wish to cause the death of a good man, so I will marry you." Tbe released one rope, and with much earnestness said. "My dear, have you any cold victuals on band?" "The man who don't take the paper" i always tbe first on press day to borrow some one's el e has been ask ed to get Mr. So-and-so's paper, and then presents a polite request for the last magi tine, a few late city journal and a bundle of "old papers for pat terns," and then goes off with an idea that his gracious pretence has bee highly conducive to the prosperity of the paper.
