The Congressional Cemetery at Washington is called so simply be cause there are no Congressman bur ied there. It is a beautiful plat of ground in which there are a lot of stumpy , dwarfy pieces of granite boulders erected , with the names of deceased Congressmen chiseled out upon one side , and the date left blank in those cases where the biog rapher was * to indolent to look it up. William Wirt and a few of the prom inent figures in the army and naval service have actually been buried here , and doubtless their remains still lie here , but generally speaking it is not a place for permanent interment. Henry Clay was buried here , but Ken tucky demanded that the bones of her son should nourish her own soil , and as soon as the monument had been erected over his grave his remains were exhumed and taken to Lexing ton. Anson Burlingame was also bur ied here for a while , and so was Pres ton S. Brooks whom Burlingame had chalenged to mortal combat for a diffi culty growing out of Brooks' assault upon Mr. Sumner. In fact one can read the events making up the Con gressional history of the past forty years by the inscriptions upon these rough , and uncouth blocks. Here we read pf Henry Winter Davis , cf Rob ert Kantoul , of Thad. Stevens , of Tris- tam Burgess and an army of others whose public career has done much toward shaping the destinies of our jreat country and this great people , and live over again the epoch in which they enacted their several parts. One of the most remarkable of the memor ial stones here is the monument erect ed to the memory of twenty-three fbung girls who were instantaneous- y hurled to eternity by the arsenal explosion in 1864. The names of these' girls are all inscribed upon the sides of the shaft which is inclosed in a small plat of ground , and which on each recurring Decoration Day is fill ed with choicest floral gifts of the rel atives and friends as well as the gen eral public. * At the commencement of every new administration it seems to have be- ome the custom , if not the necessity , to have the White House thoroughly renovated , which here means entirely repainted. The mansion has been standing about eighty years and therefore involves the assumption that its woodwork is covered with not ess than 240 coats of white paint. Since Mr. Arthur's three years' of occupancy many radical changes ! lave been made in the interior of the house , the walls of all the rooms laving been subjected to the test of every possible hue , and every congruous and incongruous style of carpets and furniture. The chan deliers in the East Room , costing $5,000 each , have this season been reburnished at a cost of $1,500 more , while those in the Blue Room have md a rubbing up that took $2,500 to iquidate , because the whole business lad to be transported to Philadelphia where the friction is more artistic. All in all the White House is a tre mendous bill of expense , and the sen timent is beginning to be pretty free- y distributed among ouir public men that the President should be permit ted to live a peaceful , quiet and pri vate life , just like other folks , and not be compelled to keep open house : or the reception of a continuous stream of boors and bores from all parts of the country and everywhere n Christendom besides. Let us hope that the President to be selected by the American people to-day , whoever le is , may make the primal move for the change. DOM PEDRO. IT'S no use to cry over spilt milk. The homely old proverb has a great deal of virtue in it , and while we have used it for the benefit of others many lines , yet we never appreciated the grace of it at half its true value. It s no use to try to scrape up wasted luid , but , to him * who patiently waits , the cow will come in flow again. Topics. THE BESSEMER HEATER.
