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
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

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
"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

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.

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.

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

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
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 original

steam barge, carrying bnt about 10,000 bush
els, and when unloaded standing almost en
tirely on her stern, from tho weight of her
machinery, which was placed far aft, is al
ready disappearing, and in its place has como
tho new steam barge of 2,000 tons, that car
ries as much when towing a consort is other
wise. 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,
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-

Canadian lako iiiiirino is every jear Usxim
ingless. Only one or two vessels neru built
this year, and tlrnse for iassengtr or way
trado only. Canaila Is shut out of so many
ports tliat she is entirely handicapped.
Tho American lake fleet numliers aliout
2,000 vessels. 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:
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;

13; Lako St. Clair, ;!".; I-nke Erio and Wet

209, an increao over September of $32o,S09.
Reckoning 40 Hies lot with tho steamer
Vernon, 132 jiersons wero drowned from ves
sels in Oetolier on tho great lakes."
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.

To those acquainted with our Institutions. It is hardly necessary
to sav that the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, with the
branch establishment located at Xo.3 Xew Oxford Mrtt, l.ondon.
England, hair, for many years, enjoyed the distinction id tieins
the most lamely patronized and widely celebrated Institutions in
the world for the treatment and cure of those afftctums which
arise from youthful indiscretions and pernicious, solitary practices.
We. many years ao, established a special Department lor the
treatment of these diseases, under the mannirement of some of
tho most skillful physicians and surKCons on our staff, m order
that all who apply to us might recen o all the advantages of a full
Council of the most experienced sjieclalists.
We offer no apoloiry for devoting so much
attention to this n elected cluss of disiafes.
behcing no condition of humanity is too
wretihed to merit the symimthy und best
servke of the noble proti-ssion to which we
belong. Many who sutlir from these terrible
diseases contract them Innocently. Why any medical man, int nt
on doing good and alleviating suffering, should shun suili tases.
we cannot imagine. Why any one should consider it otherwise
than mo6t honorable to cure the worst cases of these diseusis.
we cannot understand: and yet of all the other nraladus which
afflict mankind tlierc is prolably none about which phisicians
in general practice know so little.
We shall, then-fore, continue, as heretofore, to treat with our
best consideration, sympathy, and skill, all applicants who are suf
fering from any of these delicate diseases.
