An addition to the hrnnxu mon strosities with wliich Washington al ready abounds , is to be unveiled in the presence of the public dignitaries at the Capital , next Saturday. It is the fiijuro of Admiral Dupont the he ro of Port Hoyal , but it bears a more striking resemblance to Kobinson Crusoe i'i his best stniro of despair. The Admiral was a fine looking man , and an officer of such consummate courage and thorough ability as to jump from a captaincy to the Admir alty at one bound. Therefore his memory deserves something better than this amateur botch-work. I have been for years pegging away at Con gress and protesting against this squandering of the people's money upon the-inartistic abortions in the similitude of statues that one meets at every street intersection. They have cost the Government all the way from ten thousand dollars to one hun dred and ten thousand each , and after all are nothing but a public eye-sore. They are derided by foreigners , de tested by ourselves , and must defy the merciless criticism of the spirits of those whom they are intended to com- nifmorate if said spirits do conde scend to rfvisit the Capital. The invasion of Washington by the expectant office-holders has already commenced , even after Mr. Cleveland has taken twenty thousand of them by the hand at Albany. The hotels are already more than full , and all the morning and evening trains bring its additional population to make up the half million people who will be hereon the of February on twenty-second day ry to stay until the inauguration and as much longer as they can. Fifty representative citizens of Washing ton , without regard to party affiliations have been selected as a committee to get up an appropriate as well as an elaborate programme of ceremonies for Mr. Cleveland's inauguration. Apropos of the 20 pair of boots that a Wytheville , Va. , cobbler pro- po'jed to present to the President- eh-ct , but which the latter insisted upon paying for , reminds me of the fact that Mr. Perry Davis the origina tor of the celebrated "Pain Killer , " made and presented to Andrew Jack son the pair of boots that the Gener al stood in when he was inaugurated on the fourth of March , 1829. D.ivis studied out his formula for the Pain Killer while at the cordwainer's bench in Fall River , Mass. , and from it left a fortune equal to the deserts of a patent medicine man. In this case of boot presentation , the thought never entered Davis' head that Jackson would give him an office , nor did Jack son entertain the least idea of giving him one , and he did'nt. However , in these more degenerate days it were better that Mr. Cleveland should pay for his boots just as every man does , only he should insist upon not being particularly marked for a victim of extortion. The outlook for the conviction of General Swaim is not so encouraging as it ought to be. 1 should think that nn ordinary court martial would hard ly need any stronger proof of guilt than the miserable pettyfogging that has characterized the defence from the outset. When Swaim was first brought face to face with these charges , he de clined the interference of a military commission to investigate them , and when that commissioi was ordered by the Secretary of War and found a liasis for the charges , he resisted the * court martial that the President was compelled to order to try him , and lipr" he has interposed every possible Dbstacle in the shape of demurrers , rebuttals , surrebuttals , and what not. until his counsel have succeeded in [ retting the court into confusion worse confounded. Swaim , however , should be hustled out of the army anyhow , on general principles. DOM PEDUO. SOJIE men have tact. Said the bridegroom who didn't wish to either affend his bride or die of internal dis turbance : "My dear , this bread looks : lelicious , but it is the first you have jver made. I cannot think of eating it , but will preserve it to show to our children in after years as a sample of Lheir mother's skill and deftness.- IF a man really wants to ascertain if how little importance he ( the Joughty lord of creation ) is , let him iccompany his wife to the dressma kers , about this season of the year. ONE of our western journalists re- narks concerning our health giving lir , in its relation to man : "It kisses md blesses him , but will not obey rim.
