Does the President The country must have sighed a sigli of relief when it was told a short time ago that the President had signed a temperance pledge and donated a considerable sum of money to some United Ebenezer Junction Brick-lane Temperance Society. The phenomena of his abstemiousness was insignificant compared with the surprise oc- casioned by the report that he had given up some money. But like a great many other handsome this one is without the merit of reliable data. If Grant was seized with a cold-water his good resolution has failed for he is reported as again in- the old wallow. Last week the great and good Horace who believes somewhat ia Protec- tion and was in the and he was tendered an ovation at the residence of Zach Chandler. Every body knows that Horace is a temperate ana that the Michigan gentleman isn't. Horace drinks Croton and preserves a rubicund while Chandler drinks bad and his face grows chalky. Grant attended the and of there was something to drink. Chandler wouldn't tolerate a fandango at his house without something strength- ening. During the evening Horace was very much disgusted to Grant standing beside Chandler's punch-bowl dealing out damnation to the anon helping him- self to a generous ladlet'ul. He was very liberal with Mr. Chan- dler's and it is said that when he and the and a few others of those who dwell at the Presidential got back home that evening they were all very anxious to be placed in their diminutive beds. A correspondent tells that he has seen Grunt time and again upon the avenue in a state of mauldin drunkeness.

Conscience sit Work on an Ohio Member of A stranger sitting in the gallery of the House will notice upon the floor below an old with spare wrinkled face and gray generally dulled rnd glazed in their but at times shooting out a gleam such as one finrls com- mon to the insane. His manner is peculiar. He sits much of the lime with his arms looking in an gloomy way upon the at he wanders about in a restless and at all times he seems to be alone. If we were to follow this man from the House to his we would find that on ihe either in his committee-room or at the restaurant or at some drink- ing house upon the he would stop and pour down his throat nearly a full glass of whisky or brandy. As night comes these potations and when he retires to bed at night it is to be under the influence to such an ex- tent that he falls into a heavy sleep. During the long watches of the night the gas burns in his and he seems to have the same terror of darkness common to frightened children. This is the punishment of mur- der. The man thus haunted and tortured through life has upon his hands the blood of an innocent woman- At all waking or she is before some- times pleading piteously for her at others dangling like a bunch of old clothes on the while the shrieks of her agonized daughter are never out of his ears. The horrible phantom is ever present. It sits in grim silence at his sleeps in his walks by his and the shlined by his is never alone. Against this horrible torment there is but one and that is whisky and that dulls the while driving one on to insanity and death. When the assassins of the late Mr. Lincoln were on trial befure a tribunal organized to the prosecuting attorney seemed an- imated by sin blood-thirsty desire to kill. In the mad fury of an excited mob a group of suspected people were driven like frightened sliuep into a mil- itary tac head prosecutor bad but one and that was to hang them and othcis if the bloody vengeance of the mul- titude was not satiated. Instead ii singling out the aud draw- ing tlic mighty arm of law about the ho sought only a gen- eral tragic sacrifice to stxtisfy his own and the mob'f thirst for blood. He had it all his own way. He was proud to be the fitting instru- the Government gave him unlimited control. A misera- ble wretch to save his awn volunteered the so- called occupied the and was guided in bis testimony by the devilish ingenuity of the legal who knew that every word his witness uttered was a sworn to with the noose of the gallows dangling before his eyes. Of such guilty knowledge on the part of the prosecution wo now have abundant proof. One illustration is This Welchinan swore upon one day that some time in March previous lie had met Booth at the Kirkwood and gave the details of the interview. He said he recollected well the room and the conversation. After the court adjourned for the the assistant counsel hurried to the hotel with the willing witness aud asked him to point out the room. This the man and when asked how he he sakl ic was the apartment of a member of then absent from the city. An es- atnination of the register revealed the fact that at that time no Con- gressman occupied this but one had been there in December and January. So if the story was the interview occurred during the when the mem- ber was absent. These facts were communicated to the loading consul .of the Gov- and the assistant urged that the man be put upon the stand to correct his statement. To his utter astonishment the prosecutor positively refused. Such correc- tion would mar his theory of the that swept all the prisoners down to one common doom. God's vengeance is slow but sure. The blood of the innocent does not cry in vain for retribution. The hard-hearted man realized the hor- rible suicide of crime. The cruel rope that swung out the innocent woman in that hot summer's sun before the gloating eyes of the armed crowd caught iu its noose the neck of the murderer. In that moment passed from him all the sweet content that makes life precious to and whether taunted by his brother members of Congress as an assassin of a wo- or left to his own gnawing consciousness of life with him is only a continuous horrible death. At a recent wedding in a certain town in the upon the entrance of the bridal par- ty into the plaved Me in My Little SOUTHERN CONGRESSMEN. Brigadier General U.S. Senator Ames' Representatives iu the Lower House of Congress. Donn Piutt's When Messrs. McKee and who claimed to be elected members of Congress from came forward to take the Mr. of objected. He objected on the ground that these gentlemen had not been nor did they hold any certificate showing such elec- executed by the Governor or other proper officer of the State of Mississippi. They claimed to have been elected on the 30th day of Novembar and the first day of in in proof exhibited certain certificates signed by General military commander of that district. How such certificates of such an elec- tion could be considered valid bothers one considerably. If Gen eral Ames was in command of the States as Military it was certainly not in a condition to return members of Congress. on the the State had been General Ames could not be in command. I give you this as a specimen of the way in which business is done when it conies to counting up a majority for one among so-called Congressman from the South. Any one possessed of the slightest showing on paper can be sworn provided that he is a Radical and will sustain the Pro- tectionists of Pennsylvania and New England. I know one gen- formally of Logan who remained a member of the Forty-first Congress from be- ginning to with a majority of over three thousand against him in his own district. The clerk de- when his name was that the successful opponent could not take his seat because of certain disabilities not then and as the minority candidate had some sort of a certificate from the Gov- ernor or the Secretary of he was sworn and permitted to re- tain his assisting in all the grave legislation of two years.upon that foundation. He had no more right to E. seat there than I had.ancl yet our party winked at because his vote went to make up the two- thirds vote necessary to sustain the class legislation we suffer and put through the infamous subsides and jobs to which our party is committed. Yet this gen- tleman represented or misrepre- sented Calhcun's old district in South Carolina. He has been suc- ceeded by a negro black as the of and isuo- rant as a mule. And this is called and so we go from bad to until Providence or the Democratic or some other intervenes to save us from ourselves. D. P. I A Grand State Dinner. thclWashingtoii We challenge contradictions when we say that the State dinner last evening was the most elegant ever given iu the White House. The state dining-room is grand in its lofty and decorations. The table accommo- dates number of guests who attended last evening. All the members of the and their wives were ex- cept Mrs. wife of the At- torney General. We believe she has never been to Wasbicgton. Sir Edward and Lady the Vice President and Mrs. Earl de Sir John and Lady Sir Stafford Northcote. Lord Mr. Speaker Elaine and Commis siouer Williams and Mr. and Mrs. Banchroft Miss Chan- Mr. General and Miss Dr. Sharpe and Mr. Justice Nelson and Kitty Felt were the other guasts. Oti the right of the President sat Lady ou his left Mrs. Cotfax. On Mrs. Grant's rigut sat Earl iJe on her left the Vice Presi- dent. Both ladies and gentlemen were in full in the highest sens.- of the word. The gentlemen wore their orders and decorations. It was a brilliant and nothing could have been added to give effect. Adown the center of the table is of immense is a horizontal mirror with gilt and slender gilt wires upon which flowers are festooned. In the center was a grand Oriental stand in which was capped by an immense basket of flowers in the form of the crown of England. This stand had many and in each was a bouquet. At every plate there were aad vases containing them were disposed at proper in- tervals all over the table.
