A letter received from Atty. W. R.

W. I. Smith
Bays,
they arrived in
the capital city without any acci
dent and in good health and is well
pleased with his situation. The
citizens, the common every day peo
ple especially, are very friendly,
which makes the situation a great
deal easier. It appears that on the
opening of Congress each Repre
sentative is furnished with a couple
of tickets to dispose of to any of his
most particular friends which on
presentation admits the bearer to a
seat within the sacred portals of the
House, and Mr. Copeland was
ushered in behind the railing and
accorded a seat within a few feet of
the Speaker where he had a good
view of all the proceedings and
where he witnessed many new
forms and proceedings which to a
novitiate would no doubt seem
exceedingly strange. You might
ask who held the other ticket? As
Mr. C.'s eyes wandered over the
great number of people gathered
to watch the opening of the Con
gress they rested upon one
countenance which seemed familiar
and upon a closer scrutiny he
found it was an old and well known
citizen of Audubon county, Greeley
township, Mr. S. A. Heath, who has
been "down east" for several
months and during his tour has
now reached Washington where he
iB enjoying himself satisfactorily.
