A prophet is not without honor save in his own bailiwick , and the stories going the rounds of the newspapers about our great philanthropist , Air. W. W. Corcoran , affirm the quasi- scriptural quotation. It is said abroad that Mr. Corcoran has given for pub lic beneficence more than three mill ion dollars , to say nothing of another million distributed to private chari ties , while he has ten million left to fall back upon in case of a drought. These are very pretty stories to rend in the newspapers , but when the tax- books of Washington are consulted they deprive the narratives of a good deal of thieir romantic interest. They hardly size Mr. Corcoran up to more than one tenth of the amount ascrib ed to his exchequer , although his property at the capital and elsewhere is very productive and very valuable. It may be said of Mr. Corcoran that he is one of those philanthropists who keeps his left hand thoroughly posted xipon what his right hand is doing , and his benevolent contributions ( public and private ) are so thorough ly panoplied with conditions , that the name of Corcoran will scarcely grope its way to posterity by the side of thai , of Howard , PeaboJy or any one of a do/en others whose charities partook of none of the ostentation that Mr. Corcoran exacts as a condition prec edent and subsequent to his gratui ties. After four score and more , Mr. Corcoran finds himself enjoying the best of health , despite the fact that the doctors gave him up as a dead man thirteen years ago. He has outlived all three of the doctors who then pre dicted his early demise , and under his abstemious and altogether plain mode of living , there seems to be no reason for suspecting that he will occupy his elaborate tomb at Oak Hill Cem etery for many a moon. There are upwards of 000,000 books in the Congressional Library to-day , with room upon the shelves for about one-fourth of them. What on earth can be expected in the way of utilix- ing a library with 400,000 of its best volumes piled up helter-skelter on the floor , and the other 200,000 in double rows on the shelves , may be demon strated by those who are crying out against the construction of a new li brary capacious enough for the stor age at least of this vast multitude of books the largest in the world. I3e- ides this stowing away of books , val uable maps of reference , engravings , etchings , etc. , are necessarily hidden away from the public view , possibly not to see the lijjht of day for another D w generation. And there are newspa pers and periodicals that are intended to meet the current wants of the mem ber , which are likewise consigned * to the dark recesses of the basement of the capitol. It is a positive shame and disgrace to the American name , ihat foreign visitors who come here should always find the Congressional Library the fit subject for their cant ing criticism , when a four-hundredth part of the money lying idle in the Treasury vaults would furnish a libra ry building that would be a lasting credit to a people who can thus show their ability to sustain the largest li brary in all the world. I see that the campaign speeches this year have but little to say about the abuses of the contingent fund of the two Houses of Congress. And well they may , for one party is just as bad as the other when it comes to the foolish squandering of the pee ple's money. I have just feasted my eyes upon an account made for a member , by Mr. Adams when he was clerk of the house , and which he must have certified to as being necessary for that member's discharge of his Con gressional duties. The articles em brace perfumer- , cases , fans , tooth picks , fourteen-carat charm pencils , cologne , pocket-knives , handkerchief- boxes , odor-cases , opera-glasses , hair brushes , shaving-cases , and visiting- lists. It is time that this contingent business should be abolished. DOM PJSUKO. LOUISVILI.K , KY. , tried to hold a convention of a national association of drummers , politely known as com mercial travelers , but they only got together a company of two with three Italian counts , who refused to furnish music unless paid in advance. That broke up the convention. A CALIFOKXIA justice of the peace fined a man § 6 for being drunk , and took in payment a plug of tobacco , a deck of cards , aone-bladed jack-knife , a day's work , fifty cents in cash and a promise to pay the balance the next time he came to town. SCANDAL comes from the very worst kind of ruuior-tisiu. | THE BESSEMER HEATER. w GO GOO O ti H 4 OQ & CQ . 8J o 8o 0 GO Call at LaTOURETTE'S SEE THAT MAGNIFICENT Hard Coal Base Burner THAT HE IS GIVING AWAY TO PURCHASERS OF HEATING STOVES !
