The American popple seem to take it for granted that for the summer months at least , the President is justified in abdicating his power and leaving the government , to take care of itself. Of all thalineof presidents , from Washing ton down to the nineteenth , Grant was the first chief magistrate who had ever 'taking a .summer junketing. Mr. Lincoln in the last summer of his life slept occasionally out at the Soldier's tlome , but in his four years' administration , he never left Washington. Nor was it particularly because of the existence of war and the supervision of military affairs that detained him , because these duties could as well have been performed from any otherlicadquartersbut31r. Lin coin would not establish the precedent of leaving the Capital and the duties of his high position , simply because of the cli mate and its malarious accompaniments. Yet the Washington of to-day is infinitely moie healthful then it was then , and the necrology of the White House shows but two Presidential demises-that of Harri son who was killed , not by malaria but by the office-hunters , and that of Taylor who ate too heartily of ice-cream that was flavored with the same villainous vanilla that afterwards poisoned Mr. Buchanan and others at the National Hotel , and is now slaughtering the youth and beauty of our land. This leads me to mention that J\Ir. \ Ar thur , who has never spent a summer in Washington , never intends to. As soon as Congress is done with its work , the President will go in the Dispatch straight to Newport , and during the summer will go up and down the eastern coast , fishing around Poppysquash Point , digging clauis at Squantum and eating them at the Gut. How the President will spend his days of retirement after the 4th of March next , is a problem vgiich even he cannot solve. He can hardly assume any prominence in the political world , for the dignity of his retirement will be above that , whatever it may have been in the time of John Qincy Adams. The prospect of Congress coming to an adjournment as early as the third of July or the fifth , is not so flattering. The fight over the fortifications bill promises to be both long and desperate. Indeed it would not be surprising if this part of the appropriation may not go over entirely to the next session , for what does the country want of fortifica tions anyhow ? If Congress Avould go to work and do something toward rendering our navy something like respectable , we could well forego any necessity for fortifications or coast defences of any kind. As I have hitherto written , the > Chicago ( which is said to be the best specimen of marine architecture that the Government has ever turned out ' of its own account ) has proved a dismal Failure so far as fighting qualities and seaworthiness are concerned. By the first of September the Wash ington Monument will have attained a height of 500 feet , when the shape of the structure will be changed to that a of a pyramid , to continue on Jfor 55 feet ) to ihe apex , which will be the completion of the monument proper. The dedica tion of this grand memorial will take place on the 22d of February next , just s < thirty 3Tcars from the date of the laying af the corner-stone. One of the peculiar ind appropriate features of the dedica tory exercises will be the delivery of the oration by HonltobertC. Tyinthrop , f Boston , the same orator who officiated ihirty years ago. The ceremonies atteud- mt upon the dedication will be the iiost elaborate that have every taken jlaec upon a like occasion in this coun- e. : ry , Congress having by joint resolution ippointed a committee of both houses , i mipowered to make such arrangements is will be appropriate to so august an iccasion. The whole cost of the monu- \v uent when completed will be not less han $1,250,000 , but to the everlasting lisgrace of some of those who had the nanipulation of the funds when the orig- nal Monument Association undertook he work , about one-third of this amount : vas stolen from the fund. fund.Dojr Dojr PEDRO. EXAMPLES are few of men ruined by jiving. Men are heroes in spending , sravens in what they give. THIS hot weather dampens the linen of the starchiest dude on the street and makes him umcomfortable in mind and body , but , bless you , how it does make the corn grow. Out of the com , if we have plenty of it , may b'e made ne\v dudes and more starch. A LITTLE girl of this city hit it very happily , yesterday , wlien she said one reason why she was glad her father had quit drinking was because he sent her to the butcher shop now to buy beefsteak instead of to beg liver as she used to do. There is nothing left to be said , for a neat temperance lecture.-Lincoln Jour nal , July 4th. THE Fitz John Porter case has finally been shelved. The bill for his rein statement passed both branches of the National Legislature , and was vetoed by the President. The House immediately passed it over the Chief Executive's veto by a vote of 1G § to 78 , but the Senate failed to pass the bill by a tie vote 27 to 27. "Only a little while longer' ' Fitz John singeth. THE same old story "didn't know it was loaded , " comes from Plattsmouth , where a boy pointed a supposed empty revolver at a young lady. It. was too well loaded and the aim could not have been more certain. The lady was deaden on the instant , and the boy in jail has has an excellent opportunity to ruminate upon his folly. A few years in the penitentiary might have a wholesome effect upon him and serve as an admoni tion to others who indulge in such idiotic and dangerous'sport. IP the best man God ever made ran for the presidency , he would have to wade chin-deep through obloquy. The first target was put up two weeks ago , and the next will be put up two weeks hence. The target with the most holes in it will be elected presi dent. Defamation elected Garfield , Lincoln and Jackson. As soon as a man achieves anything by brilliancy , sloquence or statesmanship , all the liounds of hell are turned against iiim. Talmage. THE nomination of James G. Blaine aas opened a new industiy. A Maine nan has applied for letters-patent for ihe manufacture of plumes from wood fiber and other fluffy materials which 3an be cheaply made , and , at the same time , are very ornamental and lurable. He claims to be able to aroduce a plume eighteen or twenty nces in length that can be sold for 1 50 or 75 seuts , which , for campaign r street parade purposes , is as good is a § 5 feather. As the plume is the imblem in the campaign for the " 'plumed knight , " the demand must 3e large for that purpose. Bee. THE refreshing innocence of the Kansas press is distinctly shown by he remark flf an editor down there he other day , to the effect that "Mr. ind : Mrs. Blanke were agreeable stir- ' rised yesterday by an addition to heir family. " Now , as all good little ihildren understand these matters , Here is a sort of mythical surprise on occsions , but an editor ought to mow better. Though , on second bought , it may be that way down in Kansas. But in the well ordered louseholds of Nebraska these little svents are carefully and joyously an- icipatecl. Topics. Xowymy dear , " said a candidate's vife , "I don't wish to throw the slight- st obstacle in the way of your elec- ion , and if you choose to turn the louse into a beer garden , and have ill the loafers in town tramping on ny carpets and filling my curtains vith tobacco smoke , and drinking vhiskyoutofmy best teacups , I shan't ay a word. But I want you distinctly o understand that if another of those vomen's rights delegations comes to now if you are going to take a manly land for down-trodden womanhood veil , that delegation has got to be v wenty years older and keep its veil s lown , or I will interview it myself. Chat's all , dear. " PUCK. THE name of a Milwaukee saloon is "The Young Men's Christian Associa tion. " For monumental , mnstodom < cheek commend us to the Milwaukee beer slinger. THE Prince of Wales comes arouiu again with his little schedule of debts amounting to a round million , and says his mamma wcn't pay a cent of them Parliament will have to come to the rescue of the creditors. The prince always lets them run up to a million before he turns them over to the public for settlement. The queen is too thrifty to waste any money on the heir apparent. Her income is enormous and her expenses very light , and Wale ? has to do all the honors and bear the brunt of the expense , and always will have his nose to the grindstone so long as he is kept waiting. Journal. THOSE "starving" Indians in Eastern Montana , who have been reported as feeding on range cattle , are now believed by the secretary of the interior to be a party of Black Kettle's band , who have been living in the Tongue river valley ior the last four years. If this is the case the secretary of the interior says that they will not be disturbed. They surrendered to Gen. Miles atFortKeogh , after the war in which Sitting Bull surrenderd , and the general permitted them to remain where they are now instead of sending them to a reservation. He disarmed them , and sold most of their ponies , using the proceeds to buy- plows , wagons and cattle. They settled down to farming voluntarily ; broke their ponies to plows and wagons , built them selves houses , and have been very suc cessful. Several of the Indians have entered homesteads and are living upon them. They have received no aid what ever from the government , except the first winter after the war , when they wove furnished a small quantity of flour by the war department. Until recently they have been theoretically prisoners of war , having never been officially turned over to the care of the Indian bureau by the army , and have no agent. It is the only instance in history where migratory Indians have voluntary commenced farming and have been self-supporting , and the secretary of the interior will see that they are protected. It may be that they are having trouble with the ranchmen and have killed cattle , but it is more probable that the ranch men are trying to drive them out of a good grazing valley. Bee. now another illusion is gone. If there is a fiend 011 earth it is the wood cut man who sends out to coun try papers those horrid caricatures of distinguished men and women. \Ve would like to meet him in some dark ravine and cut him up with a cleaver and feed him to hogs. After doing that we would weep for a week because justice was so feeble and weak an-1 full of shortcomings. The matter with us now is another disen chantment. We stood bravely the picture of Blaine that made him look like a country cloth peddler who used his note for a foot rule , we gazed with complacency upon Logan in the air and attitude of a convict being sen tenced , AVC didn't even puzzle to un derstand how Ben Butlers's left eye got aiound under his right ear. We bad always read and heard that Mrs. Log'aij was a charming woman , fine looking , well preserved , intelligent , amiable , spirited and all that made a fine type of America's fair daughters. But the engraver has laid his sacri- lirrious hand upon a block of wood and sent it out labeled "Mrs. John A. Logan. " The hair looks like the dirt thrown up from a spaded ditch , the forehead like a piece of plowed ground , the eyes like lemon stains on blue calico , the nose like a potato and die jest of the features as though the * 3 general effect had been kiln dried. Now a man who will do that ought v to be killed. He is evidently in the pay of the opposition. No living woman can possibly resemble the As syrian contortion that is palmed oiF DII us as the picture of the wife of the next Yice-President. Topics. W. 0. LaTOUKETTE , f II DEALER TN | | .
