(From Our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, D.C., Jan. 22d, 1331.
This has been a comparatively busy
week in both houses of the uatioual Con
gress, and, while it is- believed an extra
session cannot be avoided, its work will
be considerably lightened if Congress shall
continue at this rate during "the few re
maining days of the session. The House
passed the three per cent, refunding bill,
and the navy appropriation bill. The
Senate passed a brace of appiopiialion
bills; awarded $100,00? to RenJllolliday,
wli claimed half a million ; settled the
Kellogg Cjise; niada hasty adverse dispo
sal of Senator McDonald's resolution to
appoint a regular committee to coitside
the rights of woman : debated the Indian

Him are 'shocked to know that it has been
nublisiied in the papers. .Alas, what an
affroiit'to all the venerable traditions of
diplomacy. Senator. Edmunds, of Ver-
iiiont, was decidedly aiigry, aud he moved
that a committee le appointed to inves
tigate the means by which the treaty be
came pnblic. There were only four '-correspondents-
who' obtained copies of the
documents, and it is fair to presume that
they did not steal what could be obtained
for the asking thereof. As, also, each of
the correspondents aforesaid are geu tie
men', it is hardly probable that they will
reveal the sources from which they deriv
ed their information, even though, as
Senator Edmunds suggested to-day, they
should be locked up betveen four cold
walls for three, six, or nine months, or
nine years,1. until they told what they
have no business to tell. The last peen-.
sion on which the Senate undertook to
tjud out who "gave away" its secret pro
ceedings was when the New York Tribune
published the Washington ; treatyfThe
expected, fruitless! If the Committee on
Privileges and Elections has any disposi
tion to inquire into"; ancient history , it
might summon Senator Edmunds and ask
liim if his copy of the Washington treaty
bore any marks of having passed through
the telegraph office, between the time that
he first placed it on his desk at home, and
looked at it agaiu several weeks later.
The unterrified agitators in favor of
woman's enfranchisement, Mrs. Stanton,
Misses Anthony, Cousins, and others,
have been holding another convention in
Lincoln Hall, and, on yesterday, they sat
in the Senate gallery, aud saw disaster
overwhelm the little resolution, oQerred
by the freshly married Senator McDonald,
in their favor. No one can listen to Miss
Anthony or Mis. Stanton without being
i m pressed with the ability and capability
of these. tadies ; but the efforts of the
younger and fresher champions are not
edifying. They talk too much with their
mouths. C. A.

Certain Massachusetts Republicans are

Hayes, who has been permitted to 6ign him
self, fr nearly four yeaj-s, President of the

and when he had got possession of it, his

'How. great an insult you arc proposing
to the two illustrious Presidents of the name
of Adams is made manifest by the following
words from the son of the one and the grand
son of the other:
'I think Mr. Hayes was elected by a
fraud, and I do not mean to have it said that
at the next election I had forgotten it. I do
not say that Mr. Hayes committed the fraud,
but it was committed by his party. I have
no enmity to Mr. Hayes, but after the fraud
by which he became President I could not
vote for any person put; up for President on
the Republican side who did not disavow
the fraud committed. I would not support
any member of that party who had any sort
of mixture with that fraud. I feel that the
counting out is just asimue.lt a fraud now
as at the time it was perpetrated."

ly understood that while Geu. Grant
had not been a prominent politician,
he had acted before the rebellion with
the Democratic party. Remembering
that in 1828 Tammany Hall took the

Dr. A. G. Rrooks, a successful, farmer
of Rlack Creek, inform us that on the
night of the 27th of December, his horse
Slipped into a marl-hole, and remained
all night, unable to extricate himself.
The water all around him, and over him,
except his head and neck, was frozen,
but, wonderful to state, the next morn
ing when the horse was found he was
unhurt except a slight wound on the
heel. To get him from the pit a ditch
had to be dug, and the water drained off'
from the marl-hole. The horse was rub
bed aud treated well, and with the ex
ception of the heel, is as well as ever.

any more trick in getting married than thar
is in eating peanuts. Many a man has stood
shivering on the shore until the river has
runout. Don't expect t marry an angel;
them hev all been picked up long ago. Re

not marry for buty exclusively ; buty is like

Don't marry for pedigree unless it is back

A Useful Almanac.

aware that we had ever shown that we
could speak in eight different languages.

a neatly bound copy of his Almanac in
eight langnages. In addition to the Al
niaiiac he has also sent ns a circular giv
ing directions how to take pills iu-Chi
- j nese, which is a very handy thing to
have in a printing office.
We once heard of a girl who could
chew gum in three languages ; but now
she is surpassed by Dr. Ayer, who can
hike pills in eiglt different languages.
If the pills fail in English, we can try
them successively in German, Swedish,
Dutch, Norwegian, French, Portngese
and Spanish until a care is effected. We
do not know of any other pills in the
market which offer such advantages.
We suppose that Dr. Ayer intended
either to flatter our knowledge or set us
out on a coarse 'of the study of the lan
xuastes. We like the Almanac. It is the
correct thing for now we" can tell tlie
weather in eight languages, which is a
great 'improvement on the old plan.-r-Vilson
