OUR WASHINGTON LETTER..
Washington, D. C, Nov. 20, 1877.
We talk and bear and read of nothing in
these lust few days, but the freshet from
which this and suivoundiiig vicinities ave
Btifl'eving. The rain was not violent in
this District, although it full dining most
of the lust three days of tlio week past.
llut the Potomac overflowed its banks, and
the whole lower part of the city Is flooded,
besides numerous cellars nud basement.
Day before yesterday a man aud two horses
were drowned whilo attempting to cross
Virginia Avenue. Tlio malls were detain
ed for some days and a general confusion
has ensued. Much loss of property lias
boon occasioned along the river both here
and in Georgetown, but tho worst is now
over uud the water is falling.
I should not have said that we nve think
ing of nothing but the freshet, for there
are one or two other subjects that can but
interest us. Washington' has reason for
great coocevn regarding the recent mavine
disaster I refer to tho loss of the Huron
off the North Carolina coast last Saturday
for several of her citizens were lost.
Lieuleuaut l'almer was one. He was a
son of Dr. Falmer of the U. 8. Navy, was
married three or four years ago, and leaves
a wife aud two babies. His sister's wed
ding has already been announced to take
place to-morrow Thanksgiving Day, she
having been engaged to a young English
man of the Diplomatic service, for over a
year. The wedding will be postponed, of
course, and tho afflicted family will scarce
ly be in a mood for giving thanks.
There aro moro interesting events trau
fpiiiug at the Capital too, in the last few
days, than haB been the caBe boforo during
tho present session. The Senuto leinaiued
iu sessioti all Mouday night, struggling
over (Ikj seating of liutler of South
Carolina. Tho Kepuhlican clement has
received a scveio stiuing through tho
action of two Senators from that side iu
voting with tho Democrats, and tho agita
tion appears to bo caused by an attempt
to gain a very near majority on the one
side and a foil' of, aud struggle against,
losing it mi tho other. Thurniaii aud Ed
munds are tho leaders iu tho strife, aud
the unmerciful bits they mako at each
other are enough to make ono shrink from
a politicians life. Ho must have lived a
truly God-liko life, who cau run tho
gauntlet of a term in Congress and not
have his name niirchcd by the pulling
into light of some deed doue in darkness.
If a man has ever told a lie, even though
it bo when ho was but a child, he
can't come into tho publicity of a seat in
our legislative balls without being twitted
of it It is no wonder the members get
hardened to it and come to caro very little
what is said or thought of thoir private
lives. Apropos to this I quote tho follow
ing telegraph from the pen of a con
scientious Washington correspondent to a
leading paper, which, although I consider
it a little exaggerated, certainly contains
iniuch truth aud faithfully portrays same
women and noma men who may be seen
almost any day : " You -can see flirtatious
too diFgraccful too report. Not only are
tho.eutianccs to the Capital thronged by
braseu creatures who have lost all woman
ly modesty, but there nio frills, scarcely
past obddhood, leaving on Senator's arms,
listening with glowing checks to compli
ments paid them by tho great mrn iu tho
corners of the conidors, eating with them
in tho restaurant, and unsuspectingly be
ing the subjects of winks between Con
gressmen. They high-minded legisiators
will leave their seats any time, no mat
ter how urgent the subject iu debate, to
answer the card of an attractive woman."
I do not believe iu the uuiversal corruption
of our Congressmen, but I have seen and
kuown enough to show me that these great
law makers are ordinary mcu and mortals,
as liable to temptation und as subject to
the snares of the crafty ns are other per
sons. It is a fact that the lobbies are sel
dom clear of female friends of the members
and that their cards call out the presence
of the Senators aud Representatives much
more promptly than thote of tho other

"ludian custom makes the sqaw property,

EST Mrs. Sitlor washod the shelves in
her husband's Philadelphia drug store, and

CS" There was a wedding of tho most

in Mansfield. When the knot was about
being tied tho mistake was noticed, but the

their wedding trip as planned, took tho
parson to the bridge over tho river dividing
Coventry and Mansfield, and wero married
there iu full view of a factory, whoso every

tW McParhin, the Mollio Maguire de
tective is accompanied by a brother detec
tive who "shadows" him and acts as a
body-guard of ono. Before entering rail
way cars tho "shadow" makes a recon
noissauco to look out for dangerous char
actors. These precautions are necessary
in order to guard McParlan against assas
sination by those who fear his evidence or
seek revenga for tho M ollics' doaths. Rela
tive to tho drama supposed to represent
life among tho Mollies, McParlan says
that tho piece, as witnessed by him in a
Chicago theatre, is tho greatest burlosqiio
immagiuablo upon tho reality.
C3T" Deacon Smith, whoso committal for
trial in Middlebnry, Yt., on a charge of
murder, lias been anuoiinced by telegraph,
was a pillar of tho Baptist church in that
village, and for many years was looked up
to as an exemplar of piety. Tho prelim
inary examination in tho case showed that,
if not a m u i dure r, ho is at least a hypo
crite. His wife died, aud poison was fouud
in her stomach. Ho tried to Lire the
chemist for ?350 to report to the contrary.
Long before this tho villagers noticed that
be often walked home from religious
meetings with Mrs. Champlin, a pretty
milliner, whose husband seems to have
been very blind to her conduct. One even
ing the deacon was seen to kiss Mrs. Cham
plin at the gate. Mrs. Champlin was an
attendant at the death-bed of Mrs. Smith,
and on that occasion the deacon was caught
hugging as well as kissing her. He said
he was simply expressing his gratitude for
her kindness, and promptly offered to do
the same to nil the other women present.
Mrs. Champlin is alto held. for trial.

ONE CENT A DAY I
Economy Is the order of tho hour, and every
expenditure, however small, Is expected to give
a return In full value. Every family requires
ono good, reliable newppapev. If such an ar
ticle can be procured for less than one cent for
each working day of the year, we are not
aware of It. A Family Newspaper should con
tain a carefully-prepared summary of all the
news of the day, both Religions and Pecnlar j
and Is arranged so that the two departments
may be separated and read by two Individuals
at the same time, so much the better. Tho
Family Newspaper should have attractive read
ing for the various members of a household.
Bonie portion of the paper should be devoted,
every week, to religions and moral Improve
ment, to current secular news, to agriculture,
commerce, markets, ilnance, to general litera
ture, Ac., with a special department to the
yoiiDg. Above all, the Family Newspaper
should bo perfectly puro, and free from any
contaminating Inlliiences in its reading matter
or In its advertisements. Too much attention
cannot be paid to this feature, when the press
is Hooding tho country with to much that Is
vile and pernicious. To crown all, the Family
Ncwupaper should bo nntramineled by any af
filiation with sect or parly, and should be freo
to give all the good news from and about all
tho world. If such a Family Newspaper can
be had for one cent a day, It should bo taken
by every family In tho hind.
