The Change in (ho Weather in Whir] OI?I St. Valentine Lived mid in Whirl we Kespirc?Inviting the Poor t< Town to Freeze them?Life In th Conntry--Othor Items. The good St. Valentine lived in i wanner latitude than this?soniotiine we have a breath of spring by the 14tl of February, but not often. The bird are not muting now?in fact, they hav not yet come out of winter quarters ii this region. The peach buds nro no swelling. The willows on the branche show no signs. We have planted notli ing in the garden, but we live in hopi and faith that spring will come and i near at haml. The young lambs havi came find nro shaking their little tails and some of the liens have gone to set ting and that s a sign. It has been i hard, long winter, ami so we will enjm the spring all the more. Wecan'tplov for the ground is either frozen or it i too wet. The hoys can't hunt, for tin guns freeze to their hands, but they rui rabbits, and we have a rabbit stew nios every day all mixed up with Irish pota toes, and it is a savory dish. It i: mighty hard to keep up an inviting bil of fare now, for we are afar from oyster; nn?l fish and beefsteak. It is too latt for backbone ami sparerih ami too sooi for turnip greens, ami so the rabbits nn< the birds help out ami vary the inonoto ?3*. Hut we have big lye hominy mos all the time, ami that is haril to beat and we have eggs?lots of eggs?am cook them in bits of ways, and they an good any way yon cook them. I don" know what the country folks would dc without chickens and egg-<. A good fa old hen makes tin- best soup in th< world, and will ntmost euro the tooth ache at my houso. Then wo have niei fresh buttermilk every day and com meal hoecakes split open and 1 utter ti go with it. And once or twiee in a whib lain allowed to have a mess of cod fish with eggs atul orentn, and the dish is se close to me at one end of the long table and Mrs. Arp sits afar oil'at the othei end and looks amazed to see the children help ine dispose of it. "The idea,' Kaysnhe, "that my children eat cod lish !' Arn^ so, when she and they eav tripe, J ^ jt on ain^aml say, "The idea of tn \ rhildreif^R^^^- arjoc !" Cow peas art i good country dish and the hing I know of. Children love theiu and vill keep fat and healthy, ami then there ire the roasted potatoes that they never jot tired of. Any tiling roasted in the ishes or boiled on the coals is heller han to he cooked on a stove. We have treat big fireplaces, four feet wide, and he little chaps have got eggs or potaoes in the ashes most every day, and it :ceps them dirty and contented, for hey nru always hungry, and that is a food sign. Children who have no appcite are in a bad way. Tlioy are pun}-. 5o it is with stock. The hest hors ?s are he heartiest eaters. Hungry folksdon't iced ai?3* tomes to whet the appetite. I ove to see a working man eat, for he njoys it, and he ?njoys his sleep, and ;ets up in the morning refreshed, and is eudy for another da}'. I have great roped and admiration for the workingnen of this land. They arc the hackion e of the government And will be its est protection when trouble comes, dr. Handall wrote well about them in he Augusta paper, when he said that if hose millionaires, who arc making their mmense fortunes out of sweat and toil lident change their method, they would mve to pay one-half of the common >eoplo to keep the other half from tfcknjx their ill notion cains awav. Wealth s not always secure. There are mil ions of restless people who would diritle out if they could, and they are getin^ holder every day. Hut the comuon farinersand laborers of the country ire not of their class. They are for law ind order and good government. A man vho works hard every day is not to ho i disturber of the public trnnquilitj'. lie hasent got time or inclination. Idleness is the parent of vice, and when :hese idle men bee for employment, the ich men had butter give it to them? ^ive it to them at any sacrifice. If a nan wants to work for bread for his fainly the work ought to be provided, even f it is working on the road. Iirend is lue every man if he will work for it. When the mills are stopped and a thousand families are cut otf from bread they ire a terrible element to deal with. 1'hero are some thing* that know no law, ?nd hunger is one of them. The eon emriuion 01 weattn in the unmix ol n few is tho great danger that threatens cjoverninent everywhere. No innn hnx it right lo a hundred millions when his laborers are stnrving. It shocks liumanity. It shocks judgment and reason Kiul piety. The people will respect and tolerate a fortune of a million, for thnt num is surely enough to put tho family nbove all danger of want; but for ten millions or a hundred there is no sympathy. There is a deep seated conviction everywhere that most of it is ill gotten, and ev?n if honestly gotten it I might tobesurrendered ami distributed, j Hood men fool inure than they say, for K ; they do not want to I?o classed with eoml inunist. (food men everywhere lament j these colossal fortunes, and some day a j spark will ho kindled that even good | men will not try to put out. There is but one safety for such fortunes, and that is to give tliem away. Do like Seney, or I'eabodv, or I'eter Cooper. It is cold now, and the poor of our s eiti- s want fuel. There are a thousand 11 in Atlanta who have not got it. Your s people called them there. Youarecalll> ing all the time, "dome, nil ye ends of 11 ihe earlh*J come to Atlanta."' So they * roine. and many of them are struggling s for bread and clothing. Your rich men roll in wealth, and if a man who is worth e a hundred thousand gives ten dollars to s keep your poor from starving or freor.eL* ing he is published in your paper as a !> benefactor, a philanlhopist, and so he consoles himself and receives his benea dictions. If it were not for your benevolent women your poor would perish. '' As a general thing the rich men have no s more conception of true charity than a L> Coinancliee Indian. They wouldent 1 give a cent, but for public opinion. The 1 poor arc the charitable. They give a I hundred fold more than the rich in pros portion to their meanr The world 1 don't know how much the poor do for s one another; now they nurse their sick nun nury uieir (icati, and help in every 1 way they can. Two beggars caine to my ' house yesterday. They wore honestly poor and had been burnt out, and asked 1 for a little help. I gave them hnlf a > dollar, and found out afterwards that a ' poor neighbor of mine entertained them L> over night with food and lodging, ami 1 gnve tliem a dollar besides, and I felt ' ashamed of myself. I am a good deal * better olT, and, therefore, I am meaner, ! 1 reckon. And now comes wet shoes and wet stockens, an.l it is all from the brnuti" ful snow.

Social Denmiuls on the Government's Officials?Hayes the Inauguration of Mammon's A tin Iteration?Snobbishness of One of the Vulgar Queens. Washington, 1"). ?Xo thoughtful observer of the tendencies of social life in Washington can fail to deplore the inconvenient relations that now exist between the salaries of heads of departments and the yearly increasing cost of maintaining a respectable household in this city. One can appreciate this who inquires about the sum to be paid as rent for even a modest house in Washington, to say nothing of a house lar^ft enough for such receptions and dinners as certain people expect the head of a department to give. Nearly every one is beginning to see that either official salaiics must be quickly and greatly increased, or that the exactions in a social way made upon officials must be diminished. Washington is a very different place from what it was before the war. The enormous expenditures made by the Federal Government in the erection of public buildings," in the improvements of streets, and by the erection of many new houses by private enterprise, have tended to make Wash j ington a ver}' popular winter residence. An important eloment in the popularity which brings visitor* to Washington from every part of the country is the case of access to receptions ami other social entertainments given hy oflicial persons. Kven the rental of a house sufficient fur such entertainment in a very ?|?iiet way will not he less than some $:i,()00 per j''>ar, and may. go as high ns twi?*c that sum. It only needs to exhibit this condition of things to . demonstrate the need of some sort of a remedy or reform. Twenty or thirty years ago very few members of Congress or Senators owned the houses in which they lived. That condition of simplicity is now reversed . ho far ns Senators are concorned. Wash ington is rapidly imitating the socia customs and pecuniary extravagance o expenditure which chnra?t.?ri/.?; the ric! people in London and New York. Al of this may he well enough, and not I he deplored, if confined to private in dividual*; hut it becomes a public cn lamity when oflicinls in Wnshingto feel hound to imitate such social dis play. monky A I'ACTOIt in wasminuton soenm It is only recently that money has he come such an important factor in Wash ington society. For a long time moue; alone was not enough to give one stand ing in Washington. Probably there i no place yet in tins country where mei of brains, education and talent occup, so gocd a position without the supper of money, as here. With the olde class of public men money counts fo very litth*. Hut it is easy to see its in fluence is growing year by year and i threatens within a very short time to ah solutcly dominate all other influence in Washington life. This will entirely change the character of Washington so ciety. Where it has been simple an* natural in the past, it promises to b snobbish and artificial in the future Rich people begun to he attracted her ahout the time of the discovery tha they could come here and live pracli cally free from taxation. It has bccoun through this migration of rich pcopli a fashionable winter resort. The com ing here of unofficial rich people wouh not have had much efl'ect upon genera nr....Li ? - -- * it itKiiiugion society n tncir coming ha< not stimulated other rich people to react for the official places at the capital. Tin creation of monoy-bag standard for ad mission to the Senate, has crcatwd hen a wealthy class of high officials whore gard money and its possession as tin toucthstonc of merit. The growth of tlii: element has been father encouraged b} inlluences around the White House Grant was a worshiper of money. Il< entertained ami gave preference to ricl people. This was particular^* true whei bo went out of the White Mouse to pa] visits. IIAVKH* WOltSIUi' OK RICH I'EOl'l.E. Hayes' adulation of people witl money, was only equaled by his carefu saving of his own pennies. His worshi] of rw-li ni>nnli> >>< - ! g-*w I. ..O .!?. ?V.I mvriu Llfill IJ shown than at the last diplomatic reeep tion giv mi by him at the White House The d'-ploinatic people were his guests o honor. All of the other guests preset) were invited to meet them. Sir Ed wan Thornton was the dean of the Diplomatic Corps at that time. He was giver prc^denco over all of his associates These gentifcuieii mw tho crea-test possible sticklers for etiquette. Any 111*11 with the slightest knowledge of the world or the commonest notions of politeness would have been very particular to have observed every requirement to contribute to their pleasure. When the hour for going to th? rcfreshuicutroom was resched there was only one thing for the President to do, and that was to give his arm to the wife of the principal guest of the evening. Sir Kdward Thornton had already given his arm to Sirs. Hayes. Mrs. Astor happened to be present in charge of policemen who were guarding her extraordinary display of diamonds. The glittering vision of this concentrated wealth coming under the notice of the President, he immediately dashed for. i :- ii.~ * - * nmuiim in me most unciuous manner asked the privilege of escorting the diamonds and black pearls to the diningroom. Lady Thornton was left without an escort. She resented this as an insult, walked up-stairs to the dressingroom, ordered her carriage, and with her two daughters went directly home. Arthur is just such another worshiper of mono}'. Ho associates only with rich people, and while he goes out in societv more than any other President who has ever held the office he nevfcr yet darkened the door of any of the houses of any public men whose poverty compels them to live in a moderate fashion, lie goes out more than is compatible with the dignity of the office. He is seen with greatregularity at the houses of people who have nothing but money to rcccotnmcnd them to the notice of any one. From the time that he first camc into the White House, Oen. Logan was very friendly. He did all that ho could ...viw.i.i Ti.. ri < / iu u|iiiuiu Mini. j in: wuiiurni was iroqucntly at tlm White House and his opinion was freely sought by Arthur. Yot, with all his gadding* about as n socicty man, President Arthur nevei called upon Gen.

I noticed nn instance of Washingtor il snobbishness last night in one of tli if leading groceries of the capital vrhic I) will illustrate the character of one ela: !1 of our high-toned court society. I wi o waiting to buy Homo little things, ami i- very pretty anil modest lady was slandin i- nt the counter watching the clerk do n n some packages for her. Another lad; the wife of an old Wnshinglonian, w: also waiting, as 1 was, when Mn?. (Sen.? a leader of the capital, and one of tl newest of the Houccau ricfie. came s r 1 * tin^ in, dressed in velvet and sea I ski - She was a tail, angnlnr woman, with .. nose which seemed to turn up at even thing. She had an eyeglass attached t a long handle in her ri^ht hand, and th s she presented in front of her right e\ n and began looking superciliously aroun .. the store. All oi the clerks were as bi sy as they could be. Itut in the 1110 arrogant air she turned to the one abo^ r spoken of and said: r "Do 3*011 not see, sir, that I am wai . ing V t The clerk dropped the bundles he hn ami rushed over to her. She then point* with a majestic air to a lot of tomato* s marked 12 cent* a can. She said : y "1 will take one of those cans of t< niatoes ; you may carry it out to m carriage;" and with that she swept oi of the store in the same regal way i i-' which she had entered. As she did s i. I noticed a smile of content on the coin tenancn of the old Wnshinglonian, wli t has the blood of some of the most note families in the country in her vein .>..i. ijoicuv oiiiiru 11 ii111 nor turn cam i? to bo rved, ami taking her purchase p which mounted to many times that < the snob who had pushed into bur plac in her arms, she said : "I thank you, but 1 will carry these out myself." She too 1 the bundles in her arms, ami going t j the door stepped into a liner earrit" than that of the female, and was drive quietly away. It is no wondei that soni L* of the old Washington ladies object t - the rude ways of those who part con B pose our great circles. You meet many persons in Washing ton society whom you would not thin L' of inviting to your dinner-table at you < homes. Official position to a large e> f tent determines a social standing, an many a family which moves in th second or lliinl mill- it! Ilw? - L> their own States arc elevated to th > first rank here. Some of them hav i been socially ostracise*! for their scan v dalous actions in their native towns, bi Washington never bothers itself abou th* skeletons in it* inhabitants' closcti and Lucifer himself will be welconi j here if he ivill dress well, keep hi j hoots dressed in patent leathers and hi tail out of sight. It is curious how pec pie go up and down in Washington sc >' ciety. Senators and the sort of Con - gressmen who can come here tor lif if they want to, are tlic only ones \vh j. have any prominence. The party i noweraiul its IVir?iwl< vnimUfn ?l.n . - OK*.I dard, and a change of party means al I most entire change of society. Tw . years ago Mrs. Koifcr was the great lad j of the c:ipitnl.

A circular issued by the signal sorvict regrets that some cm.illusion ha* arisen ir regard to the nomenclature of storms the result being that cyclones are called tornadoes, and tornadoes called cyclones Mr. H.izen, the aMo "I'rohnb'.ilic* ' of the county-, who is presumably the authoi of this circular, says that he wants tlu words cyclone and tornado broughl back to titer original technical meanings so that their use shall conform in some measure to right and justice, and to terminoloirv of tlH'tri>lii?ists tli?> Wurlit rtvor ami ho informs us that thy signal sor vice never applies the word cyclono t< southern and western tornadoes. Mr. llazen describes cyclone and tor nadoes. and shows wherein they differ but it seems to us that ho is disposed t< ben little too nico in unimportant details It seems to us, too, that lie is inclined t< regard our southern cyclones as some what insignificant; but has Mr. ilazei ever been caught out in one of thesi cheerful gales? Has he ever stepped ou to his front porch, with only one sus ponder fastened and found himself faci to face with one of these inviguiflcun tornadoes? If he has ever had thin experience then his opinion' ia entitled to som weight. If he has ever been caught u] and blown end over end for a mile an< three-quarters at the rate of four miles ' minute, then he is nt liberty to cal names and to rehash the teminology o things. 1 Rut Mr. llazen is asking too much o the solid south. Does he expect a mai who lias been blown into the top of 1 pine tree and wedged there to take ou his memorandum book and ask a storr ' its maiden name? Docs he exuuet fami lies who have boon torn up by the root to inquire whether they have been rw r over by a cyclone or a tornado?

I* On the lltli instant, we left Huntingdon y, for the Southwestern portion of thin is County for a few day* bird and squirrel _ hunt, having for our companion A. M. Lee, the nckno w I edged prince of postmasters ; and let us say when Huntingdon loses him she will lose a posttnaster that lias pleased every one without n a dissenting voice, llis duplicate cannot be found. Being securely seated behind a two-forty (hour*) thoroughKs bred, we were s? 0:1 on our hunting 1 ? ground, it being in the immediate vicinity where we were both born and raised, as a matter of course we were well acquinted with the woods. While follow0 ing a rocky branch, known as the Gin Branch, we came to where it skirted tho margin of a high hill, our setter, Charlie made a dash at a rabbit and both L': rabbit and Charle disappeared in the f il!. Phe entrance was what we stippos"s ed to be a crevice in the rocks, as the margin of the hill was covercd with 3~ large sand rocks ; in a moment the bats - came pouring out by the hundreds ; the weather chilli- tlnw fi.11 tr. ?.? .. . o J ground in a stupor as soon as the air struck tliem?their slumbers hail been disturbed by t lie dog. Wc were enjoyl(? inn the lun when, to our astonishment, several large horn-owls came flopping. s" out?one gave a dismal hoot as though he had not seen daylight in years, or s' wished to frighen us away. Becoming 5 uneasy for fear our dog could not rel>' turn, Mr. Lee went to the entrance of the cave, taking a poliJ and probing some six feet, he found it made an abrupt ? angle to the right, the opening was >- uareiy smiicient lor a common-sized " man to enter; he groped his way until 10 it became so (lark that he rctuned ami 0 revealed the terrible news that it opened out into what he beleived to be a large hall, and that he could hear Charlie run* ning and whining, as though he was lost and could not lind his way out. We 'r sent to a neighboring house and procured " a lantern, determined to rescue Charlio at all hazards With lantern in hand L" we both entered, compelled to crawl on hands and knees for some distance bev fore we could walk erect; the entranco ? turned liist to the right, then to tho left, in a zigzag form; finally we met lt Charlie and his bark, as it echoed and re-echoed, astonished us to such an extent that we raised our lantern over 0 our heads, which threw a bright light 8 around. \Yo stood dumb for a moment; * were shocked and horrified: the surroundings wc-re revealed; we were in a large room, ceiled on sides and overhead !" with rude clnnboards. liefore us set n. c largo table with a mutilated pack of ? cards in the centre; heavy wooden chairs n around the table; a conpln of large and rough shop-made knives on one cornor. As soon as we could collect our senses ? and calm our staggered brain wo found \ we were in a secret cave that had once * been occupied by a band of outlaws, but r who or when, was the question. In sur1 veying the room, which was 18x18, wo 6 found, in one corner, n black something; r holding the light closo, our blood wui * chilled; it was a large black man, bin skin atiu'ttesh uiv. ac those who, In ancient day#, were kitoo ^vo. Sharon; a large and rough made ciiatti - ,mwm. : was locked around his anklr- and fasteni ed to a s-taple in the floor. In the opposito corner lay the dried fiuiu?-:< of two hugo J bloodhounds; in an old und heavy woouen uox was :minu iwo oi<i-insnionea horse pistols witli Hint locks; ih.-vliad un: doubtedly doiw? servicc in the revolution; . there wns also several pair of handcuff*. We began to think that wo were in tho *' regions of the damned. When looking t on the rough wall there we saw "the , handwriting." It was "John A. Mur. roll, 1828." We were in the great outlaw's den; we could then see that tho man chaincd had been stolen by thu bold ? bandit?brought there and chnined.until - they could run Ki n South and sell him. j 1 he presumption is tlint when the cave was deserted he was alive; the d?om was sure, but what agony lie underwent " ?chained and alone?his face liko Mll', ton's devil, ''grinned horribly a ghastly smile." Thu bloodhounds had been kepL for the purpose of recapturing anyslave that might escape. As we'wore 1 about making our exit onr companion, - Lee, called onr Mtention, in an excitod i manner, to another object. We turned g around, and ho was pale and the lantern trembling in his hand ; he pointed under the table, and there lay the form and - dried frame of another human being, a Examining close it proved to be that of j a once beautiful f? mnle. She too was chained. Sho hud died a horrible death ?starved to death. Hor long yellow 0 hair still clung to tho dry skin on her e head, which hung in golden tresses over p her bosom that once heaved with tho j bn ath of.life, though nov cold; her once tubv lil>s were parted so as to din n cIoko a set of pearly teeth. Ht>w camo 1 she in a robbers den ? Hb<? could not ,f have been a victem to Cupid's dart; if mo why chain her? She undoubtedly had been kidnnpped and held for ransom. !
