Office in Hall, second story of ' ass more’s carriage factory. Rising Sun, epi-3n Cecil Co., Md, Rambles in Virginia- Editor Midland Journal. On Nov. 15tli left Baltimore at 9 A. M. arrived in Washington in 4') min utes Took in the Capitol buildings &c. from the dome, had a fine view of Penn Ave. and the Potomac. Visited the 6th St. depot, and was shown the spot where President Garfield was kill ed, a star marking the spot where his head laid. There is a monument, and contribution box in the opposite wall, in which the following inscription reads “I was sick, and ye visited ice.’’ This is the origin of the G irfieid hos pital. I then took the 5 o'clock train for Hen don, Va s tuated 20 miles W. ( of Washington, the W. & Leesburg R. R. Wentdrect to Mr. Ayres where I stayed all night, next morning went to his former home Buena Vista, which I found a beautiful farm owned by his son-in-law Mr. R. Dorssey. In the midst of a grove of fine aspen trees stands the mansion, built in the shape of an L. surrounded on three sides by a porch with 22 pillars, and surmounted by a portcio on the fourth. Being used as a hospital daring the war, the house had one side covered with soldiers names written in pencil; and in an ad joining field numerous soldiers graves are still visible. There is an unusually comph te dairy and other buildings of red sand stone, two spring of two diff. rent waters, close together, empty ing into Rock Run. This stream runs through a heavy body of timber of 150 acres. In this timber I found a large beech, on which are clearly deciphered at least 20 names of soldiers souv enirs of their bivouac on their way from the battle of Chantelly. Next day 1 visited Belleview, the adjoining farm of Mr. Geo. Harrison, another son-in-law of Mr. Ayre. Next took in the Chantelly farm, (the most noted property in ibis part of the state) which consists of some 13 hundred acres. Two grim gate posts alone, stand to marls the spot where once stood the old homestead de-troyed in the war ; and the soldier’s encampments close by, all still to be seen. Spent four days taking a general look around the neighborhood, which I found smooth, level, rolling, and naturally productive. Visited several noted people, among whom was Mrs. Roierdem, an act ' ive 010 lady of 84. a former belle of the county, also Dr. Rush, one of the not ed county physicians, and formerly of Maryland Was very much pleased with the intelligent, hospitable people. Find them open and free, ready to re ceive strangers, regardless of religion or politics. Found the largest peach trees I have ever seen ; an abundance of fruits and vegetables of all kinds, especially a large crop of apples. I was then taken by Mr. Dorssey from his place, Buena Vista, to Clifton, passing through a fine timbered country of ten miles, but sparely settled, awaiting the , enterprising man. I had time enough upon arriving at the station, to note i all the surroundings, viz the new buildings going up. I formed the ac quaintunce of a Air. Ayre brother-in law to Air. Dorssey who said here’s a fine opportunity for an energetic man. Now that the Fredericksburg Branch of the Va. Alidland passes through it. Took the train at 1 o’clock p. M. for the far famed old city Alexandria stopped there long enough to come to thejcon elusion ‘'lt is a sleepy unprogressive place.” Left for Washington, the first thing that attracted my attention was that mighty shaft ’The National Mon ument” looming up in the distance 555 feet iu height, which appeared at great advantage from that side, but ] from no other. I think it was a great i mistake to build such a structure on : \ the low grounds of the Potomac when there is such fine elevation near by. j Stopped again in Washington, on my I return, two days. Visited the Treas ury, War Department, Patent office ' and other buildings, last but not least, i 1 I visited the White House where I had 1 the honor of shaking hands wit i Pres ident Cleveland at ids reception. A short while after I left, the sad news arrived of Vice President Hendrick’s death, the White House was closed and draped in black. I will mention that I saw The Declaration of Independence during my short stay. Boarding the train at 3.15 in 45 minutes. I was in Baltimore, in time for Thanksgiving among my friends feeling much better by my trip WAsnrNGTON Hill. Letter From Sylmar. Editor of the Midlai'f.Toarna,’, Dear Sir: —Perhaps you may hare heard of the Embryo Vil lar/e of Sylmar as it is adjacent to your flourishing borough, and situ ated on the Balt. C. R. It. about two and a half miles North Hast of Rising Sun. It derives its name from the name of the station which is composed ot three letters taken from each state, ( Mmfani, Pennsylvania.) Altho the name of the Post office is Barker, so named I presume in honor of Air: Daniel Barker the proprietor of the so called experimental farm near the sta tion, I think the day is not far distant when the name will be changed to Sylmar, not becasue Barker is not a pretty name nor because any of the patrons wish to rob the distinguished gentleman of honors which he may have justly merited, hut because the post office should be of the same name as the station, and the coming village ; and in my judgement this change cannot be made any too soon, as it is not infrequently the case that letters come here addressed Sylmar, instead of Barker, and they only reach their des tination on account of the knowledge, and courtesy of the mail agents ; who are aware of this confusion of names. And while I am speaking of Post offices allow me to say that I learn from the Journal, the lightning, has struck the office at Colora. I also learn from the same source, that the P. O office at the Sun, is expecting a slight shock from the same cloud, but I hope that nothing serious will re sult from the stroke; of course the thunder cloud will not pass this way, as we have a post master, in sympathy with the administration, and if lie was not the patrons of the office would’ot wish to have him removed as he is a gentleman, and competent todiscliarge the duties of the office. Air. Taylor Nesbit our obliging merchant on the comer, is doing a good business in the way of general merchandise ; and there is only one thing that seems to be in his way of meeting the demand of the community in his line and that is want of 10 >m. He needs a larger store room, so that he could better exhibit his goods to customers. Campbell, Carter & Co. the proprietors of the warehouse at this place have been doing quite an extensive business especially in hay & coal, but since the great snow storm I notice a falling off' in trade, owing to the bad condition of the roads, and partly perhaps for want of a better market. This firm is composed of men combining religion, and business tal ent; and they well deserve the patron age of the surrounding country. There is already talk of changes io take place among some fothe farmers about here next spring. I hear that Stephen J. Woodrow will leave the Barker place in the spring, and that Mr. Barker is looking around for another farm to buy located near Sylmar it. Is to be hoped that he may be successful as he has both the will and the means, to improve the soil. Sylmar Nov- 18th 1885. Beta. Extracts are given from the recent decision of the Alabama olaitus commis sion to the effect that t':e Chesipeake bay forms no part of the high seas. One Dollar per Annum in Advance. Our Washinjrtou Letter. i From our regular O' rrespondeut. \Vlslington. Nov. 33, I^s. The Capitol is again dressed ir> black, and flags are flying at half mat-tin all parts of the city. The season of mourning for Vice Presi dent Hendricks will continue thirty days. The White House will remain verj* quiet during the time. Its only occupants at present are the Presi dent and Miss Cleveland. After Christmas day the black coverings on the great white marble pillars of the Government buildings, Capitol, and White House will be removed, and the latter will be again opened to lie public on New Year’s day. .Much interest, was manifested in the question whether or not the Pres ident would go to Indianapolis to attend the funeral of Mr Hendricks. He intended to go, but strong pres sure was brought to bear in order to ’ deter him. Senator Edmunds, Speak er Carlisle, and many Democratic members of both Houses protested against the trip. AH through the , day on Saturday telegrams and lct ; ters poured into the White House | to the same effect. Among the tele- I grams was one from Samuel J. Tild en, urging him not to go. The argu ’ ment was that his duty to tuecountry , is to avoid as much as possible all . risk of the dangers of trayel until > some manner of Presidential sueces -1 sion is provided by an organization ‘ of Congress There is now no President of , the Senate and no Speaker of the . House. If President Cleveland were to die between now and the meeting of Congress, the election of a sucees ' sor to him in the Senate might lead to such a fight as would provoke widespread disturbance. The death of Mr. Hendricks lias naturally brought into discussion the question of the Presidential succes. sion. In regard to filling the vacancy left by Mr. Hendricks, nothing can be known positively until after the caucus to be held by Republican Sen ators one night this week. The names mentioned for the place are those of Senators Logan, Edmunds, and Sher man. The impression is that there will be a pretty sharp fight for the nomi nation. General Logan’s friends have done the hardest work in his be half. The Democrats are much op-' posed to Logan as President pro Uni of the Senate. The three candidates are careful not to express any eagerness for the position of presiding officer, but it is thought any of them would be pleased to except the nomination. Royal Blood. We are all kings and queens in this country, and we have a right to as good blood as that which courses through the veins of emperors. If the blood is poor and the cheeks are pale, it is well known that Brown’s Iron Bitters is the great tonic which will give color, vigor and vitality. Mr. M. K. Gibson, of West Point, Miss., says, I felt weak and debilitated. Brown’s Iron Bitters made me strong and well.” According to the old saying we aTe t) have tweuty-one snows this winter, the first sn >w ha-’ing fallen on tLe 21st of the month.
