Congress has at last realized that
earnest legislation is imperative, in
order to effect an adjournment be
fore the hot summer sun and its en
ervating influence is upon us, and
have gone to work.with a zealous in
terest to accomplish something for
the treneral irood. The failure of
the Centennial bill, which promised
such a juicy bone in the mouths of
the lobby, has had the effect of
dampening the legislative ardor of
many members, and the passage of
the finance bill in the Senate, has,
in a great measure, exhausted the
material of this Congress. The ap
propriation bill for the maintenance
and current expenses of the UiHer
,ent departments of the government
service have "been adjusted without
serioiw hindrance, and the day of
adjournment bein fixed to June
22d business will henceforth be
dispatched with greater celerity.
It is a matter of interest to the
visitor to notice the large number of
seats that will be vacated in the
House or senate, when some bill is
under consideration in which no
personal interest is attached, or in
which no political capital can be
made. The record of absentee,
upon measures which are purely for
the benefit of tbo general good, is
noticeably large. On the other
hand, when the Centennial bill was
under discussion, the livliest interest
was manifested, and the House pre.
Aentfd a full row of seats. I may
"say here that a large female lobhy
was interested in this hjijl, and this
feature of It-elf ought to have sent
"where the "woodbine twineth."
Aresolution offered in the House a
day or two since, brought every
member present, to his feet, and a
lively dkcussjon brought out that
chronlo humorist, Sunset Cox,
again with one of his ludricous ex
hibitions. The resolution was in
effect to prohibit the publication In
the. Congressional Becord of
speeches never made upon the floor,
or which had been written for some
illustrious representative, by some
threadbare- impecunious Behemian.
This" resolution was considered a
base violation "of hereditary rjght,
and an infringement upon ono of
the dearest peirogatives of a. Con
gressman. Of course such an idea
could not bo tojprated fora moment,
and a regular ;qiim'-Monal
"fetich" was Inaugurated at ence,
Among the countless digits that
went up in wild gesticulation to
ward the speaker, together with a
full toot from his basson, was the
wiry figure of spectrum analysN,
He began by launching a few in
vectives at Speaker Blaine, and
criticjsed pvprything and everybody
on general principles ho made spe
cial target at Blaine because he had
ordered the Reporters not to Insert
"laughter," "applause" etc. in the
congressional report of speeches.
This was in the eyes of Cox, taking
the lightning rods away from his
thunder: and he could not be recon
ciled to be so pasjly cast into obliv
ion. Speaker Blaine, explained hi
course, by stating that the rules of
the House prohibited any disorder
or applause, and it seemed to him
much rnore proper to have the. Rec
ord coufonsj to thp rules. Mr. Cox
parried tills thrust effectually, by
suggesting that in his opinion it
would be still more appropriate to
have the House conform to the
rules. "Why sir," said Mr. Cox,
"at tjmes a big fire lell would hard
ly be heard in tjjp House."
Mr. Eldridge, " of Wisconsin,
thought this a good opportunity for
him, so ho struck in with the state
ment that there w&a a rrood deal of
"ding dong anyhow." "Yes, sir,"
says Mr, Cox, "ami nobody pulls
the bell oftener than the gentleman
Hereupon the gravity of the
House lost its equilibrium and gen
eral ttisorder prevailed, notwith
standing the vigorous thumping of
the Speaker's gavel. It Is needless
say mat the resolution was ta
Now an appropriation is now ask
ed for from Congress to complete
the work upon the monument,
which came to such a sudden ter
mination. The all-absorbing topic in social
circles at present is the forthcoming
marriage of Miss Nellie Grant and
the mutton-chopped representative
of "Howl'd Hingland. The cere
mony takes place at 11 a. m. to
morrow in strict accordance with
English custom. The trosseau is
said to be most elegant and costly
ever used in this country. Many
guests from New York and else
where have already arrived; the af
fair is to be creme tie la crcme, with
the finest distinctions. There will
be no groomsmen. The bridesmaids
are Misses Barnes, Dent, Fish, Fre
llnghuysen, Porter, Drexel, Cooke
and Sherman. The precedent es
tablished in this marriage, of mak
ing alliances between thelamilyof
the Chief Executive of the nation,
and titled foreigners is criticised
severely in many quarters, but lit
tle is said openly in the Press. The
love and veneration for Republican
institutions, and the Republican
form of crovernment, ought to be so
grinly implanted in- the hearts of
merican daughters as to look with
disdain upon all such alliances.
In this instance of the President's
daughter, she is said to be a charm
ingly sweet tempered, loveable girl
of 17, but without education. She
was placed at boarding school soon
after the President took the execu
tive chair, but constantly longed for
the society of a doting mother, and
to experience the no doubt flatter
ing admiration which naturally
followed the foot steps of the father.
Personally she is a very ordinary,
plain looking girl, and Sartoris can
only congratulate himself that he
won a President's daughter "only
this and nothing more."
In contrast to this was the man
riage of Miss Blair, on Thursday
last, to Mr. Janln, both of this city.
A very elegant wedding, and both
parties to it speaking fluently six
languages. I can see a very desira
ble advantage this couple will have
over ordinary individuals, insomuch
that in tbeinevitable "family jars"
which must take place sooner or
later, they can quarrel In six differ
ent languages, and having exhaust
ed all the adjectives in the French
tongue, can conveniently change off
for-a few Dutch synonyms.
The all important bridge question
still occupies the entire time and
arduous labors of our Nebraska
Representatives in Congress. The.
ooniniittee have not yet reported a
bill , and the contemplated move to
do so, and put it through under a
suspension of the rules, will mis
carry. The Iowa Interests have

Julius Sherman, member of the
Pennsylvania Legislature from Lan

at Washington, Lancaster county,
last evening. Wittmer was intoxi

wife, whereupon Sherman entered
Wittmer's house and interfered.
The ball entered his abdomen and
lodged in his spine and the wound
is considered mortal. Wittmer was
arrested and jailed atXancaster.

been brought to public notice
through the report of a committee
appointed to Investigate and report
upon the propriety of pinking an
appropriation for the purpose of

wealthy merchant of Nbav York

of years ago, Avith a Miss Custis,
grand-daughter ofMartlia Washing

Avith apparent success, conceived
the idea of building a splendid tri

a novel method of getting at a
young gjrl's affections!, under the
present system of education; but it
