Washington , D. C. , Nov. 9 , ' 84.
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.
