Wsishinirton is consitluralily crest
fallen over the fact that she has neither
room for tiie strangers who are to come
here to take in the Monument dedica
tion and tho. Inauguration , nor halls
for the accommodation of the people
who desire to hear the oration on the
first occasion , or to trip the light fan
tastic toe on the second. The new
Pent-ion hall will furnish many a first
class case of pneumonia unless the
weather should prove remarkably
mild , PS it will be next to impossible
to heat a hu/rp / brick building while it
is in a. half finished state. I see , by
the way , that the new President is get
ting his hand , or rather his foot , in by
' attending a series of ball performan
ces at Buffalo , though it is said that
Grover can'tdance fortho peanuts. In
fact , Mr. Arthur and Mr. Van Buren
have been the only Presidents who
possessed the faculty of going through
the mazes of an ordinary quadrille.
Grant took lessons in dancing at the
White House , but for all that he nev
er could dance.
An astute newspaper correspondent
here mentions the name of Capt. John
Ericson for Mr. Cleveland's Secretary
of the Navy. This looks like putting
young blood into the new administra
tion ] , indeed. Captain Ericson is now
eighty-one years old , but nevertheless
probably as vigorous as many a Cab
inet officer of modern days. I have
always .thought somehow that tin
country has never appreciated the
great service that Capt. Ericson ha
performed for us , nor have we shown
ourselves grateful to him for the per
sonal sacrifice he mide : for us in build
ing and fitting out that gallant little
cheese-box that revolutionized the
world's ideas of nnritime warfare ,
when she knocked out the huge "Mer-
rimac" in about the first round. Had
the people had the opportunity on that
March morning in 1862 they would
have showered such honors on Ericson
as no mortal had ever received , for he
had demonstrated the fact that we
wer * * ' invincible against , any foe upon
the , water with the Monitor , and the
army of the. West had shown itsell
abundantly able to take care of itself
on land. Capf. Ericson has been at
work in all these years since the war
closed , in perfecting other maritime
engines of destruction , the last of
which is the "Destroyer" from which
five hundred pounds of dynamite in
one mass can be thrown under water
with the most accurate aim. and with
perfect safety to the vessel from which
it is hurled. For coast defence it is as
perfect a means as human ingenuity
can devise , and would be irresistible
against the attacks of the combined
navies of Europe. There is no hum
bug about this , and because there is
not it is not at all likely that. Congress
will look upon the scheme to aid Capt.
Ericson in building his vessels , with
any sort of complacency.
The prospect that Mi. Evarts will
be the successor of Senator Lapham
must be exhilarating to the average
NPW Yorker. . So far as the conserv
ing of the interests of the Empire State
is concerned , Mr. Lapham has been an
fibsolute nonentity. In fact , since Mr.
Donkling vanished so suddenly from
the Senate Chamber four years ago.
New York has been practically unrep
resented in that body. I care not
ivhat Mr. Evarts' antecedents may
mve been as a lawyer , or as Mr. Hayes'
Cabinet adviser , he has brains , and
Lhat is what the country stands in
sore need of in her legislative coun
cils , bojr PEDRO.
AMERICANS abroad are apt to be very
American A Mr. Livingstone , who is
spending the winter in Florence , drives
mt daily with three coaches always
Iriven in line ; the firta , driven by him
self , is drawn by a pair and six horses
; atidem ; the second , driven by his son ,
vith eight horses tandem ; while the
; hird , driven by a coachman , is drawn
jy four tandem or a double pair. The
loble gentlemou at first drove the whole
iwenty steeds together , but meeting
vith an accident , the city officials in-
ierfered and obliged Mr. Livingstone to
separate them. The gentleman ought
; o drive asses , and thus have congenial
: ompanions. Republican.
A CHICAGO justice or' the peace has
jlectrififd the saloon cirqles of that city

ng a tramp who went for the so-called
Vee lunch without first paying for a
Iririk. The modern Daniel decided that
i free lunch is a free lunch , and that
so wills can partake. Topics.
