The London Times urges that; steps
be taken to open English domestic life,
the real homes of England, to American
visitors. It says that while when an Eng
lishman visits America, houses arc
opened to him so that he goes back de
lighted with the" country and its peo
ple, the average American sees nothing
but the streets, park j, hotels, theatres
and races. It adds that the more direct
the intercourse between English and
American homes the brighter will be
the prospect of permanent inter-national
good will, and that if the legion
of travellers can study their blool rela
tions of the mother country they will
learn something more than from a ride
in Hyde Park and a view of ths Epsom
races This is cousinly.
The N. Y. Herald in its financial ar
ticle, which is authority, says that a re

Reading suspension. There has been
no eeri?us decline outside the coal
stocks, and no failures. This may be
taken as an evidence that the hard pan
: in va!ue3 has been nearly rccached,and
that, though T prices may wear away
tomewhat more underi the attrition of
a summer's dullness, no great decline
is. to be feared;

A PROMISE MADE ONLY TO BE BRQ
j ,1' ' KEN. " - v''
Democrats not only promised an
early adjournment, but tney went so
far as to ntme the day. YLike - all of
tbtir.rfeccut promises it wiis only made
to be broken. The business of Congress
much farther advanced tban it
days ago. Many of the mem
both parties have gone home
the last ten days to attend to
political matters, and th approaching
Chicago convention wilr add to the
number of absentees. " A House officer
said last Tuesday that over seventy
members had left orders to have their
mail sent to their respective homes for
the remainder of the season. That
means tuat they ao not expect jto re
turn this session. At this rate the
m - a, m - m
House will soon be without i quorum.
The real work of the ? - ill be pre
vented, and July r - -- sergeant-

Democratic majority has dandled and
fuddled along in almost everything it
has attempted to do is most clearly

to June 1st.
NO PLACE TO STOKE THE SILVER
I ;. ; DOLLARS.! '
The government is, by law, compelled
to coin about 20,000,000 silyer dollars
each month.. The people don't want
them, arid the pile has grown so great
that1 the Treasury Department has no
place in which toj store them safely.
Recently, the Secretary of the Treasury
asked for &n appropriation to provide
br the safe keeping of this mass ef ail-
ver. xne democrats wiio passeu me
law compelling its coinage, who fixed
rry 1 a 1 j il
the rate so that the dollar should con
tain only about 83 cents worth of silver
and who have wiled to provide any
means to put their cheat of a dollar in
circulation all voted solid against pro
viding for the safe keeping of this money.
CUB X. AST . BOAT" KACE.
Wilmington people are interested in
boating matters, for, if my memory
serves, you have some good amateur
oarsmen. In my last letter I noticed
Jhe miserable farce wo were treated to,
in th9 Hanlan-Courtenev race. That
we might see some real skill at sculling
our citizens raised a purse of $2,000 In
order that Hanlan might be induced to
stay and row with Riley, who is almost
a first class sculler. The raee came off
yesterday afternoon. The- same game
was played a second time. In other
words, "there was no race at all."
Riley's excuse is that he broke the
spring of the fooLboard of his boat at
the end of the first mile, and so he was
not able to make Hanlan row for even
a good practice pull. -s
,-MY OWJJ OPINION IN POLITICS.
By the time this letter meets the eyes
of the readers of the Post, the clans of
the, Republican party will have gather
ed at Chicago To tell what the real
result will be ia beyond the power of
any living person. My own opinion is
that General Grant will be nominated.
The best man is John ; Siieeman.
That is to say, if General Grant is not
nominated, it seems to. mo that the
Grant men will unite on Secretary
I have heard a good ticket mentioned.
It is Edmunds for President and Win-

a strong combination. But all this is

At a meeting of the National Memo
rial Association, it was decided not to
have a formal procession and parade on
the- occasion of decorating the graves
of the Union Dead at the National
CemeVery this year. This course was
determined upon for several reasons,
among which are. that the Committee
deem the occasion too sacred to war
rant the indulgence of a noisv and
boisterous demonstration, such as are
usual in general parades, and that it is
not an appropriate way of paying that
respect and honor to the memory of the
Nation's Dead for which these services
were inaugurated. ! : ' "
