The nrasidont'a house, aavs The Philadelphia
Times, was, of course, open on tha evenings of
remilar recentlona to anv man wbo bod a
clean face and wore a decent coat, TUa crowd
gathered there on such occasions was a motly
asaeinblnge. Wide latitude was allowed in
the matter of dress, and the hideous, tnougn
patriotic, homespun figured aide by side with
the nrettv toilet, whose nossessor had run the
blackade or come aouth under tlia flag of
truce. Such drosswa aa these were rare and
merely served to emphasize the uaw calicoes
and carefully-preserved sllka and woolens in
whleh most of the ladies present were arrayea.
Mr. Davis invariably wore citizen's uress at
these receptions, but the blaie or ofllcenT uni
forms male brilliant the spacious rooms of
the old-fashioned mansion.
Probably the president of the Confederate
states was the most unpopular man within
their limits. Grave, gentle, coraiai, ana
digniflod, his manners in the presidential
mansion were all that could be desired, but
outside he was brusque to the verge of rude-
uesn, and carried his private prejudices into
public life. The Examiner attacked him
fiercely and criticised him mercilessly. John

it was by far the most popular among souin-
ern journals. Thus Mr. Davis' mistakes, ana
they were many, were ruliy neia up w mo
public view, while the people were duly in
formed of all quarrels in the Confederate
cabinet or with the generals of the army.
Perhaps the chief cause of his unpopularity
was his scarcely concealea enmity to ud.
Lee, who was, on the other hand the Idol of
the army, and through it of the people at
Probably nothing but Lee's stately courtesy
and perfect self-control prevented an open
rupture between himself ana uavis. 11 was
often charged that only the fear of an open
revolt In the army kept Davla from enaeav-
oring to remove Lee from the command ol
the Confederate rorces. uououesa any sucu
step would have provoked a revolt, but the
vexed question of state rights stood also in
the way. Lee was the chosen chief of the
Virginia troops, and as such could not have
boen removed by even the president of the
Confederacy. Indeed, Virginia claimed a
position among the belligerent states. "The
mother of states and statesmen" had, in
tardily accepting the Federal constitution of
1789, expressly reserved the right to with
draw from the Union under certain con
tingencies, a right tacitly acknowledged at
the time by the rest of the "Old Thirteen."
None of the other seceded states having made
the same stipulation, the was, therefore, In
her own eyes more than any other, o

fifentv. Even Jeff Davis had too much pru
dence to provoke an open issue between Vir-
s-inia and the Confederacy, ana inus tne wia
Dominion held her eis over her favorite
son. who. In fact, was In the Confederate
army rather from loyalty to his state than as
an advocate or secession.
Mrs. Davis was handsome, and well acous
tomed to society by years of life In Waah-Inp-ton.
She discharged her duties as mis
tress of the presidential mansion with a quiet
mr and dismitv which, if it won her few
friends, at all events made her no enemies.
She was eminently domestic in her tastes,
devoted to her husband and children, and,
after the terrible death of her little boy, who
was killed during the second year of the war
by a fall from the high porch in the rear of
the house, she withdrew from society as
much as possible, leaving her sister to fill her
place. This the young lady was nothing loth
to do, and, Indeed, magninea her omce to
such an extent as the Richmond ladles said.

Mrs. Lee was an invalid, whose delicate
health confined her almost altogether to her
own bouse. She held the office of president
of the Soldiers Aid society by the wish or
the whole country, but the active duties of
the nost devolved chiefly on the vice pres
idents. Her daughters were leaders, of
course, leaders In society, and were loved
and admired no less for their own attractions
than their father's sake.
Wealth had little or nothing to do with

and represented families whose hiitoria
homes are on the James and York
rivers and in the Northern ueck.
But little of their wealth was portable, state
bonds paid no dividends, and the state law
prevented the forcible collection of debts;
therefore they were fain to earn a scanty liv
ing by hard work. The men were in the
army on beggarly pay, while the women
toiled in the governmental offices for a mere
pittance. Thus many of the most refined and
c titivated people in the city were In actual
want of all but the merest necessaries of life,
and sometimes even of them.
Government contractors and manufactur
ers made money "band over fist," and who
ever bad anything to sell was sure of high
prices, but merchandise was far safer prop

for party purposes, had to do with tbe dogssJvl
determination of the Confederates tc "die in
the last ditch."
During the earlier part 01 the war soldier
worship was earned to tne greatest lengtns
and the women of the south made beret of
all who wore the gray. The uniform covered
any number of sins, and, as a disgusted small
girl, brought np in the most exclusive circie,
expressed it, it really seemed as If any man
with a stripe on bis trousers thought he bad a

Virginia society of the best sort is proverbi
ally aristocratic, priding itself on its cavelier
blood and looking scornfully down on all of
less ancient lineage. The war fever changed
all that for the time being, and the xevrler
foors of many an exclusive house opened to
those who, bnt for the uniform they wore,
would have been entertained in the library or
office by the gentlemen of the family without
even a glimpse of the ladies. Some enthusi
astic girls carried their devotion to the cause
so far as to correspond with all and any sol
diers who cared to write to them, a piece of
Quixotism promptly suppressed by prudent
parents and guardians.
The fact that a uniform, especially an
officer's uniform, was accepted as a sufficient
passport to society could hardly fail, some
times, to bring about disagreeable results.

happy unions were the consequence of this
romantic disregard of social lines. Worse,

afforded by distance and the difficulty of
making Inquiries In districts occupied by the
Union forces, acted upon the sailor's rule of
"a wifo in every port," and married in Vir

Fortunately such cases were rare, and a
greater proportion of war marriages proved
happy than would have been reasonably ex
pected. He Had to Court Her Again.
A minister while mHnx etsg a lonely roaa
In Arkansas that glidd Oder tall bushes
and wound around rugged h.lls. approached
a man who atood at the gate of a rude

the man, but, without replying, tne inner

The woman made no reply, but, Kicaing a

lack of interest that characterizes the sweep
of the eye over a barren waste.

Whs Speaks tha Pnrcat English f

Do Englishmen or Americans the better
speak their common language! Having been
a solourner in London for a year ana a nan,
the Rev. Dr. R. L. Stanton deems himself
capable of answering the question in favor
of us. He heard Thomas Hughes read mis
erably. droDDing the letter "r" at the: close
of such words as "morning," and making fre
quent mispronunciations. Archbishop Talc
was by no means a good model in the use of
his mother tongue, and the English clergy.
as a rule, are faulty in speaking. - Passing by
their, peculiarities as to single words, their
ordinary use of the vowel sounds is such
that, unless you give olose attention, you can
not understand them. Dr. Joseph Parker,
one of the foremost pulpit orators in London
among dissenters, invariably pronounces
"chaDter" as though written "chapter."
Many of the vowels have a peculiar twist as
they come from his tongue. Dr. Stanton's
ear detected fewer variations from the best
educated American usage in Mr. Spurgeon
than in any English preacher.
When we sit down and read to the wife of
our bosom one of our tenderest, purest, pret

our tearful eyes to hers for sympathy, to hear

we want to go out to Dakota ana live a lire
of celibacy with the prairie dogs and jack
rabbits. And when this same consistent
angel shows us a hand-worked "tidy" which
has taken ber two weeks to make, and used
np several miles of twine almost good enough
for fishing lines, and expects us to gusn witn
admiration, we feel that there's a screw loose
in the female organism somewhere.

Hew Pennsylvania Had Sfarrew
Escane From Uetttnr the Katloaial
Mr son. the star-route trials came within a
very few rotes of being tried in the state of
Pennsylvania. Philadelphia was clamorous
to have both the star-rout and the Guiteau

In 1779, on the 22d of September, the house
of representatives passed a bill authorizing
the president to appoint three commiasionars
to select the most eligible situation on the
banks of the Susquehanna river, in the state
of Pennsylvania, for the permanent seat of
government in the United States, The vote
was 31 yeas, 17 nays. On the same day the
bill was sent to the senate, which body, by a
vote of 11 to 7 struck out the "convenient
place on the banks of the Susquehanna.1
Then a motion to Insert "the river Potomac'
was lost; another amendment, inserting "the
counties of Philadelphia, Chester ana Bucks,
in the state of Pennsylvania," was a tie, 9 to
9, and Vice President John Adams cast. his
vote for Pennsylvania and thus amended
the bill went back to the bouse, where, after
a little debate, the senate amendment . was
concurred in and one amendment- added by
Madison, providing that the operation of the
laws ox Pennsylvania In the . district ceded

The Coet mtm Cottage at the Seaside.
"Oath" in Cincinnati Enquirer.
Talking to Warren Leland, tbe former pro
prietor of the Metropolitan hotel, and now of
the Ocean House at Long Branch:
"What do you think about the growth of
Long Branch I" asked I.
"It is steady, and that is what it ought to
be, instead of being speculative. The
place baa already reached proportions
I never - expected to see, and
the increase of cottages and im
provements is now that of a considerable
city. Every year cottage life is always
tempting new people into it and rooting out
the old cottagers, and thus the number of
bouses built bears small proportion ' to tbe
newcomers, most of whom hire tbe cottages
f those who are tired. There are a great
many drawbacks to cottage life at
the seaside. You must have a stable
man, and, generally, a pantryman, a
rook, one or .more chambermaids and
a valet, and they are expecting in tbe short
season to do well by you. So do the milkman,
tbe butter man, the grocer, the ice man, tbe
butcher whoever comes to your cottage
door says to himself, 'It Is no sin to skin
these rich cottagers.' . .Hence the expense of a
house that is at all roomy or showy is out of
all proportion to tbe pleasure of a hotel life,
expansive as it is, compared to cottage life."
Said I: "What is John Hoey going to do
with all thoso elaborate and unrented cot
tages be has built I" w
"Hoey loves to build houses, and has so
mm-h taste," safd Mr. Leland, "in that re
spect that he will some x!ay, perhaps in an
other yeary establish a cottage hotel settle
ment like the Elberon.' One of bis cottages
there has thirty-t wo rooms In it, and is big
enough for a hotel. . The professional cottage
builders at Long Branch," said Mr. Leland,
"expect to get one-third of tbe cost of a cot
tags in the rent of it for tbe first summer. I
think that Long Branch bad better grow
moderately Instead of too rapidly."

Dakota has a peculiar climate. A cannon

Reminiscences or Jee Jefferson.
Letter in Louisville Courier-JournaL
An extract In your paper of the 8th inst,
speaking of Joe Jefferson's debut in London
on the night of Sept 4, 1865, in Dion Bouci
cault's revision of "Rip Van Winkle," re
minds me that I was present on that occa
sion. Tbe play was brought out at Webster's
Adelphi theatre, on Fleet street. With the
characteristic modesty of the true artist,
Jefferson made bis debut without tbe usual
clap-trap used on such initial appearances,
but allowed himself to be swallowed up in
the play-bills, display posters, etc., by tbe
modest Boucicault. Nevertheless, Jefferson,
by his unassuming methods, struck the key
note to John Bull's affections, which led to a
theatrical success unheard of in those days.
Jefferson was, of course, almost unknown in
London, and made his -entree on the stage
whistling for Snyder who "vas a dog" to a
cold, dull, critical English audience, who
were, however, soon aroused from their pro
verbial British lethargy by his electric pres
ence, and then and there gave him one of the
most enthusiastic and genuine indorsements
that ever greeted an American actor on tbe
It's All Hlxht Xow.

to you about, and I'm bound to have you by

days certain sure, you can go. 8ure nough,
I'd be coming back into camp whistlin at
night, and Lee he'd say to Stonewall Jack

him by his whistle. It's all right now; we
