Washington , D. C. , Feb. 14S5. , .
, The dedication of the big monument ,
the ceremonies of which will take place
in the Tlall of the House of 1'eprcscnt ;
atives on thct21st instant , is exciting a
jjood deal of severe comment because of
the cxclusiveness of the thing. The
"House with its galleries will accommo
date about sixteen hundred people , and
'these scats have all been placed at the
disposal of members of Congress , who
assume that the memory of Washingtor
is their own private property. By the
present arrangement , therefore , only
members of Congress and their invited
guests will be able to take in the intel
lectual part of the ceremonies. Here
! again the Washingtonian proclivity to
rake in the spare dimes protrudes itself ,
for every conceivable device upon which
a figure of the monument can figure , will
be peddled upon the street , from the can
dy lozenge to the card of ginger-bread
with the shape of an elephant bearing
the monument on his back. A sad feat
ure of this celebration will be the im
possibility of the usual pilgrimage to
Mount Yernon , unless the weather clerk
sliould change his tactics for the occa
sion. The liver for some time has been
frozen over so that the boat has been
compelled to suspend her daily trips to
the American 31ecca. As Washington
was a Mason in pretty good standing
during the last years of his life , the Ma
sonic Fraternity of Washington City in
conjunction with the lodge at Alexan
dria to which he belonged , are to partici
pate in the dedication ceremonies wiih
the corn , oil and wine emblems that
Gen. Washington was so often called
upon to administer on like occasions as
the Grand Master of the United States.
The devices of Washington people for
turning an honest penny are both num-
grous and ingenous. All along the line
fcf Pennsylvania Avenue , through which
Mr. * Cleveland's inaugural procession
.will pass , the windows have been adver
tised for rent at prices ranging from ten
to sixty dollars each for the day , while
the indefatiguable Yankee has leased a
lineal frontage the whole distance from
Capitol to the White House , projecting
fiom four to ten feet from the building
line , upon which stages and platforms
are to be erected and seals thereon uti
lized at rates , of one to ten dollars for
each seat , with a brilliant prospect of a
tremendous raise on the price by the 4th
of March. All the best rooms at the
best hotels were long since snapped up
at prices that only a Washington hotel
keeper knows how to exact , while all the
halls and billiard rooms and restaurants
( and possibly the churches ) will be the
temporary abiding place of many of the
military organizations that will be un
able to secuie other quarters. A regi
ment from Philadelphia has already been
given leave to bivouac in the corridors
of the new State Department , while the
famous Seventh llegimcnt would not
come at all because of the want of suffi
cient room fqr its 980 scions of New
York's best aristocracy. About twenty
ihousand dollars have thus far been con
tributed by the people of Washington
to give Mr. Cleveland an unusually good
Jrth of March send-off , and the Inaugu
ral Ball , for which about twelve thou
sand tickets have alvea'dy bfccn soldwill , ;
je just a little superior to anything of
that particular character yet produced
on this continent. The ball room for
; his ocasion is the spacious court of the
new Pension Ofiice , and is of sufficient
dimensions to allow four thousand people
ple to dance to the music of four bands
which will be so placed as to be out ot
icaring of each other. Mr. Cleveland
will open the ball by joining in the open
ing quadrille , the music for which has
been written expressly for the occasion
by a Washington admirer.
PROF. Pi'.OGTOU , the astronomer , is a
leading authority on whist. He says :
sPlay whist of ten , daily if you can , but
waste no time over it ; play it in such a
way that it interests by calling forth the
exercise of skill. A little of such whist
goes a long way in relaxing the mind
and giving pleasure to the player. I
have wiped the cobwebs outof my mind
after six or seven hours of application
at difficult geometrical work by an
hour's good whist. "
