JM) NMlm Not t the Mat, mud W1ie CWtmlaljr Will lie Mluml Vncrrtalnty f Political tirratnras Xauar of Con- Special Correspondence ASHINGTON, Dec 5. Tho new congress cauio to CeUicrtoday. 1ong before 10 o'clock the galleries were filled, ami an hour later tho three acres of sjiaco which forms tho sito of tho Capitol building was hum- Bins like a bee hive. The U-ivinent was Ailed with strangers, and tho restaurants were doing a thriving business. The second floor had many of the aspects of a rarisian boulevard. Fretty women and grent men jostled each other in the corridors, and big crowds bung about the doors of the galleries ot the bouse and senate. The wooden men who act as doorkeepers and messengers came oat, as usual on such days, in all their glory. They domineered over tho crowd. They snored back this woman, and pushed that nusn). They put on three times as many airs as the senators themselves, and their dignity far surpassed that of the supreme Jodges on the bench. The galleries iusjdo looked like so many flower gardens, and the prince of Babylon would have been glad to have had such hanging bouquets on the. out side of his famous palace. The colored riti asn was out in all his glory, and, phosnix like, the Capitol arose in a night from tho doll ashes of the recess into the liveliest activity of one of the liveliest m&ions in our history. Speaker Carlisle called the house to order, and he makes a most satisfactory presiding officer. His contest with Thoebe amounted to nothing, and he is to lie the leader of the Democratic house this year, as he was last. Many new faces were seen in the house to day, and many wen the reminders of tho political heads that have been cut off. About 40 per cent, of tho last congress is nlcnt and 130 members have been retired. Frank Hiscock's majestic form, tightly buttoned in Its black rrince Albert coat, is seen no more among the Republicans, and his dark, hand some face wil. now be reserved for the sena torial gallery gasers. Daniel, of Virginia, with his crutch and his refined features, has Iso gone op higher; and good, kind hearted, interstate commerce Reagan will hereafter wear out the cushions of the senate instead f the hard chairs of the house. One of the meet notable absence is that of John T. Wait, of Connecticut, who was the oldest member of the last house, and who had a (ace strikingly like that of Gen. George Washington. Then, Ranney, of Massachusetts, the noted lawyer member, who conducted the Pan Electric telephone investigation, has gone back to his law practice in Massachusetts, where be will make (100,000 a year; and as for Rice, of Massachusetts, and Green, of Scar Jersey, they too are among tho absent. We will not have Andrew G. Curtin in this congress; and the dark, beautiful face of Ben Lefevre, of Ohio, will be admired in other quarters. Judge Geddes, another noted Ohio member, will not be present; and Hen nepin Murphy, whose mission in life was to put through the Hennepin canal, will not be of the southern members are not present, and the most missed man is Ran dolph Tucker, whose kind manner and ster ling worth will be remembered long after ho Is put under the sud. He will tractico law both in Washington and in Virginia, and will be a richer man out of congress than In it. The new members feel lost, and everything they aee looks big to them. The chestnut story of Senator Xesbitt, of Oregon, is going the rounds among them, and they are recall ing how KeUtt said when be first came to congress: "I was surprised at the ability of the men I met, and as I took my seat among the statesmen I looked around on that magnifi cent body of men and wondered how in the h U 1 ever got there among them. About two weeks later, when the strangeness bad worn off, I again looked around on that mag. nificent body of men and I again wondered; but, this time, it was how in the h 11 the Othar fellows got there!-' Congressmen are, in fact, very much like other men, and the average of human great ness is not very murb higher than God's most ordinary creation. It is the same in tellectually as it is physically. No one man is twice as tall as any other ordinary man, sad none of these congressmen know much son than the average reader of this article. They strut arouad here in their store clothes andfead me to wonder "Jfow, in tlie name of all the gods at once. Upon what meat do these, our Cardans feed, that they are grown so great T Many of them forget thatthey were all raw red babies once, and they will certainly all bo corpse by and by. Their political lives ill be shorter than their physical ones, and fully one-third of each congress is not returned. You may walk alout Washington today, and you will meet on every corner a man who, a year orto ago. carried his head high in political life, but who now has no iwlitical 1 to speak of. ou may see Secretary of twang ji (uirn.1 neguit "to voicu fortn Heed's, big brain, licisl is said t look like Shakesivatv, and ho lias it mind almost ns broad as that of tto wet in its ideas of life und statesmanship.

Joo Cannon, of Illinois, with his vehement gestures, his old slouch liat nud his funny stories, is lack ngaiu, and Sam Randall's wonderful eye lias already caught that of every new congressman ho can servo him. Congressman Springer sat in his seat tealar with n smile on his statesman like face, n roso in his buttonhole, and auord of oleaginous welcoiuo for his old friends, and Sam Cox boblied about liko n jumping jack run by electricity, as ho tried to shake bands with all his friends at onco ami tell a new story or on old joko to every one of them. Martin Koran, tho dark, haudsomo faced congressman from Cleveland, v. ho is noted as a representative of tho tailoring interest, is back, with his dark hair shining liko oiled ebony and his black eyes sparkling liko dia monds. John J. O'Neill, his hated rival in the labor field, does not smile at him as ho lias.se by, and both have bills which will please Sir. 1'owderly and, in all probability, displease Mr. Jay Goul.L A curious thing about this congress is tho number of queer names it has in it. There is a White, a Jlrowu and a Gray, and a Bland, of Missouri, feels sad ns ho looks Gay, of Louisiana, in tho faiv. One member is IxMig and another is Hale, whilo another is YViso in name, and iicrhaps in nature, and Mr. Crisp ought cot tamly to talk incisively.

American Tounaffe iu Wr Tiuira, ISpeclal C'orrespon Jenee.) BfrFALO. 3f. Y., Dec 5. 11. shipping season of 1SW7, now alwut coming to n, close on the great lakes, lias been ni'tst pros perous. Though nearly equaled iu 1SN), hieh v, as also a season of high freights and heavy shipments, tho showing is really nnrrecodentd, from the fact tliat tho larg iucrcaso in tonnage since that time has made tho actual profits far greater than ever before. Tho lake trade is a peculiar one, and neccs- narily much more fluctuating than rail tr ocean business. With he jieriod of dull trado that liegan in 1N51, which was brought alout by stagnation in tho iron trade, aided by a light foreign demand for grain, the lake fleet added very few vessels to its list; but nlwut tho middle of June last year there sprang up a sudden and somewhat unex pected demand for ore carriers; new mines rapidly developed at Ashland and Two Har bors at the farther end of Lake Superior, thus necessitating long trips, and since that time there has been a steady demand for ore vessels. This is now more pronounced than that for wheat, coal or lumber carriers, though it Li usually expected to drop off some weeks before tho coal or wheat trade, especially as the ore usually freezes solid in tho pockets before tho lakes freezo over. The lake trade is comparatively in its in fancy, yet it has assumed of late years some thing liko giant proportions. As lately as 1ST0 tho tonnago passing through the Sault canal to and from Lake Superior was insig nificant, reaching but 500,000 tons in ISO), while in 1S8C it had grown to moro than nine times that amount, actually exceeding the famous Suez canal in tonnage or freight transmitted. Tho Lake Superior region was too much of a wilderness for the heavy de mand for grain in 1MU-T0 to reach it, but Lako Michigan profited by tho water route to Buffalo and via the Erie canal to New York as far as the development of the west ern wheat and corn regiou.at that time made it possible. The vessels of those days wero the canal schooners, as they are now slight ingly called, from their ability to navigate the old YVelland canal into Lake Ontario, and it took a lake full of them to do any amount of business. The change from thoxt days to tho present can perhaps be no better shown than by reference to the fact that wheat frtights wero twenty-five ccutsa bushel from Chicago to Buffalo in wax times, and a citizen of Buf falo remembers seeing just oil the city sixty three schooners in a single morning. They carried from 5,000 to T,0u0 bushels each, and when ona season a schooner arrived with 10, 0U0 bushels of oats, a Buffalo editor filled a column of his paper trying to show that car goes of such prodigious size could never bo niadotopay! Today tho canal schooner of even 20,000 or 30,000 bushel capacity is voted of no account, and more than one vessel has reached Buffalo this season with cargoes of 100,000 bushels. In ISIS, flvo years after Ferry's fleet of sail boats had "hurled" tho British, with another fleet of sailboats, off Lake Erie, the fleet of the great lakes flying tho American flag numbered fifty craft, yet the combined tou nago of them all has more than onco been ex ceeded this year by a single craft built at Buffalo, Cleveland or in the shipyards of De troit river or Saginaw bay. Tho evolution of the lako vessel of today has been steady and regular. It was st first a single masted sail craft of lea than 100 tons, capable of navigating creeks and enter ing every apology of a harbor on the lakes. It was small enough, too, to be poled or dragged by oxen up the inlets in the absence of anything answering moro directly to tho present steam tug. Tho next step was the larger square rigged craft, which was not suiierseded till several years of experiment in steam had followed the launching ot the Walk-iu-the-Water at Buffalo, in 1SIL Then a season of the clumsy side wheel steamer alongside the sailing craft, then the discovery, early in tho forties, of the screw propeller nnd its superior adaptability to narrow and frozen passages. Then came a new idea; the steamer took undisputed lead over sail craft, the side wheeler nearly disappeared and the propeller took tho schooner or largo in tow, and long lines of from two to eight vessels were seen passing up ami down the lakes in tow of a singlo steamer. This style is now so popular that a schooner with topmasts is already be coming a rarity. The schooner's tow line is wind and nautical lore, sufficient in itself so long as it holds together. Since towing be came tho rule several changes have taken place in steam craft. Tlie "river tug" of about 100 tons, but carrying no cargo, was for awhilo the favorite. Tho name was from tho fact that these tugs were used mainly to tow schooners through Detroit and St. Clair rivers. Later on it became apparent that tho towing vessel should be largo enough to carry cargo as well as pull a consort, so for several years no river tugs have been built.

The single masted, double decked pro peller, with side gangways for packing freight, is an outgrowth of the old side wheel passenger craft, which gave way on one sido to tlie railroads that stole its paawngers and on tho other to tho propeller that proved moro manageable. Now within tho past two years comes tho double decker steamship de veloped from engrafting an ocean model on the combined ideas of tho new steam buoys nnd the one masted propeller. The steamshii Suvpjehanna of tho Anchor line, built but year in Buffalo, is tho only completed vessel of this new clasa, though the Union Dry Dock: company lias about completed a second, the Owego, and has a third, the Ctemung, under way. These vessels have rriat propelling power, three or four spars, siie gangways as well us hatches, and are iu f-t liuilt with th hopo of combining every feature known tob of advantage to largo craft. They can trada only between largo ports, but will mako money on u heat at ono cent a bushel from Chicago to Buffalo w hen nothing eLe could, live. In this connection, wliat might otherwise properly come further on in this article, should bo mentioned a new difficulty that, promises to arise in tho lake trafUc. The large si 1 craft that lias been built mainly on the strength of the success of the Onoko f. of 3,000 tons cajmcity, which camo out in 1SS2, is going to create havoc in lake freights hen-alter. The appearance of a dozen of these in a day, as is quite likely to occur every week or two, will break down the grain rate in Chicago or Duluth, or the coal rate in Buffalo or Cleveland, unless thesu commodi- tipH am tAkpTi hv rontrnet muln oarlir in f Iia season, as iu the cose of ore. w hich U hardly J wsmOlDMOOdi sno calling earai s isecUIty. pn&ctlcnMo.

Of this number in hich har bor tugs are included, but no vt-v-els usul for pleasure rather more llian half carry steam, and tho projiortion of steam essels is con stantly increasing, less than half n dozen sail vessels ha ing Urn built this season. Tho canal schooners are disappearing, never to return, anil it is safe to predict tliat in five years there will liosearetly a sail vessel left on the lakes that is not to ing, and they will nearly all ha o been driven into tho lumber trade. This trado is now the only considera ble ono that bus shmrn no particular change of late. Theold fashioned small steam barge, with her tow of ntiout four barge or schoon ers that have been adjudged no longer fit for grain, is ju-t as sho w.i half n dozen jcars ago. This is largely from the fact that tho Niagara riier is not navigable for heavy draught vessels to TonawamLi, the principal lumberjiort on thelowcr lakes. ThoChicugo lumber fleet of small "hookers" are still less valuable and they, too, uro not being re placed by new craft. What tho future lum ber carrier is to bo is not yet indicated. A sad feature of tho trade is gathered from tho following item, compiled iwrly in November: LAKE CRAFT. MTho montli of October shows an aggre gate of 2sj accidents ami disasters on all the lakes, 117 moro than in Septemticr this year, anil 115 more than iu Oetolier last year. They occurred as follows: Ijifco Michigan, 07, Lake Huron, tlie straits, nnd Sault river, SO; rivers, 18; Lake Siqienor, 1; Georgian bay, 13; Lako St. Clair, ;!".; I-nke Erio and Wet land canal, 15; I.akc Ontario, 12.

The foundering of the profiler Vernon off Manitowoc, Wis., in the storm of Oct. 9 is tho most serious uccidentof the year so far. Novemlier was less disastrous than was tho month preceding it, in tho aggregate. Tbe loss of tho projieller Osceola oft Port Hope, Lako Huron, ami the burning on Nov. 17 of tho Anchor lino propeller Arizona at Marquette were among the serious disasters of tho montlu Tho whole is quite toe large to warrant any attempt at particular izing. If there is any new feature of the lake trade that is interesting outsido of the strict commercial line, it is the apparent revival of the passenger trafiie that went out with the advent of the railways. Already steamers from Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago are doing a thriving passenger business during the warm mouths, and hist year for the first time tho Buffalo passenger lines felt the movement. As the increase of wealth adds annually to the leisurely class these trips tc tho northwest or to ints of interest on the way are likely to steadilv increase. C U. T.
