New Sewkb. Commissioner Back
alan is constructing a stone sewer in
the eastern ward, east of the Shaw In
stitute, and opening s new street south
of that place. The colored Deaf, Dumb
and Blind Institution, situated on the
street leading to the Uolleman road, is
fast approaching completion. It is
built of brick in the most modern style
or architecture, ana presents a magnifi

The Weather Yesterday. The
weather was simply awful on yesterday.
It commenced sleeting about 11 o'clock
.Sunday night, after trying unsuccess
fully to get up a rain all that day. Mon
day morning dawning, the trees were
found coated with ice, as well as house
tops and pavements. We witnessed
several slip-up's on the latter, especially
upon tne smooth 8ehillinger pavement,
but, fortunately, have heard of no inju
ries being received by any one.
The sight from the Capitol building
was grand and peculiar, and though
even so uncomfortable outside, it was
worth the exposure to take a bird's eye
view Of the icy and sparkling glass-like
casing of the little citr.
Persons who could remain in-doors
are to be congratulated, and it is unnec
essary to remark further bow it was to
these less fortunate.
The Chcches Sujidat. Tho atten
dance Sunday at our several churches
was good notwithstanding the inclem
ent .weather. At the Presbyterian
Cbarch all the aisles were crowded,
evf n with persons in chairs, the pews
being filled at an early hour. The Rev.
Dr. Wharey, of Virginia, delivered elo
oquent and impressive sermons .both
morning and evening.
At the Baptist church the Rer. F. M.
Jordan preached in the morning and
L. II. Ivey in the evening. After the
services were concluded, baptismal
services were performed by its pastor
Rer. Dr. Pritchard. Twelve persons,
including those of both sexes, receiving
this holy rite, as follows :

A OAUE THAT ENSUED IN WHICH
WE DID NOT TAKE A HAND. UI ail
days in our experience, yesterday was
probably the most propitious ior in
doors, and what ve are about to say
transpired in a popular restaurant oi
this city yesterday, for sitting by the
stove wero several sporting men, and
as business was dull they concluded to
put up a job on any who would come
into their parlor. They did not long
nave to wait ror a certain oia sport
who has wandered around from ono
place to the other for many winters,
and who, on account of age, has been
pronounced by the more younger of
the profession "played out." The old
sport is game yet, but more especially
when he thinks he has got hold of a
greener," who ho sometimes in his
rotations comes up with, and who he
forth worth proceeds to skin to his en
tire satisfaction. Well, here it was, the
situation was taken in in a moment,
make the old .... . sport the butt.
A j'oung man present was put forward
to play this old sport, (a game) who,
viewing him a little after the style of
tho ox and the gnat, readily took him
up. The table was brought out, seats
were taken, with the by-standcrs around,
stakes up, and tho 'game, one dollar
aside, commenced in good earnest. They
played away, the young man cheating
occasionally to hear the old sport cuss,
(which he does to perfection,) but Uking
care to plAy so that the old sport would
win; the boys around patting tho old
man on the back at the conclusion oi
each game, and he invariably folding
his stamps away in an old hathc-rn
pocket-book, that had been his faithi'nl
companion from early manhood. ell,
to bring a long story to an end, tho old
sport finally broke the j-oung man,
laughed heartily at his good luck, think
ing, no doubt, that he had a handsome
pile somo twelve dollars tho heaviest
run be had made for man3' "suns."
lie was asked to treat by the crowd who
could scarcely restrain themselves
from laughing outright. He made his
usual reply " that is something i never
do." and forthwith decamped at-

ter giving one oi tne gennemen w no
told him, he got up the game for him.

man was putting up (.allenders

Slayino a " Ratter" in the Wes
tern Ward. Tliero is a genueman
living in this ward, a worthy mechanic
and a rood citizen, who, at all times, is
not blessed with the most perfect health
and is often quite unwell and greatly
nervous these long winter nights. A
tinkle of a cow bell, n cow's lowing, or
more especially the barking or howling
of the dog tribe, immediately awakens
m and renders him sleepless one half
of the night. This gentleman has a
good neighbor who is the possessor of a
certain dog.which is nearly as successful
on the howl as the purp we mentioned
a few days ago, and opens nightly about
tne same bour. Our friend, tho me
chanic, had under consideration for
some weeks a plan for the destruction
of the disturber of his rest, and after
solving many in his mind he at last
concluded and resolved upon tho fol
lowing remedy; which was, that he
would hire a certain person he had in
his eye, to shoot, with lead, the dog. lie
saw his man, told his proposition which
was accepted, and the price was forth
with coming. On tho next night after
this solemn agreement, the contractor,
to slay, mean, barking and howling
dogs, armed with a colt's navy, took
his stand near tho residence of the gen
tleman with whom he had made tbe
contract, and that of the owner of the
pest; here he watched eagerly as a man
at a deer stand for the coming of the
game in the dim light of the moon's
beam. After waiting some time and
hearing no noise from the dog and not
seeing any game, he was on the eve of
retiring in good order, but just as he
turned to go he spied a nice little black
terrier, a "ratter, as he termed him,
the said "ratter" upon seeing him, with
bis bristles up and his tail erect, com
menced furiously to bark, and the con
tractor with the navy fairly elated at
his success, and inwardly remarking,
"my patience is rewarded, thank Heaven
you are mine," tired his shot and slew
the ratter. He went to his couch con
gratulating himself that he had nobly
perforin ea bis .aruuoua duty in me
Kirt art or the
of tbe tire arm and he too gave vent in
thanks for future rest free from dis
turbance. There is a sequel to this state
ment of facts truthfully given, for at the
breakfast table next morning ttie gen
tleman who had contrived this noble
and laudable plan for the destruction of
his neighbor 8 "dorg," was grieved to
learn from his little daughter, in tears,
that his own pet, the little ratter, had
been killed instead. He of course was
erreatlv grieved thereat and cursed his
folly. It seems the contractor who did
the slaving is near sighted and on the
occasion of the shooting was using
magnifying spectacles, ana hence the
little ratter had the appearance of a
much larger annimal and more in ac
cordance with the description given
him. Try It on again.

Siikl Henry Taylor : Conversation
is truth, an exercise very dan
gerous to t lie understanding when
practiced to any large measure as
an art or an amusement. To be
ready to speak before he has time
to think, to say something npt and
spacious, something which he may
very well be supposed to think,
when he has not lung to say that he
really does think, to say what lie
hassaid before, to touch Copies light
ly ami let them go these are the
arts of a conversationalist. Noth
ing is searched out by con
versation of this kind, noth
ing is heartily believed, whether by
those who say it or those who hear
it. It may be easy, graceful, clever
and sparkling, and bits of knowl
edge may bo plentifully tossed to
aud fro in it; but it will be vain
and unprofitable; it may cultivate
a certain micaceous, sandy surface
of the mind, but all that lies below
will be unmoved and unsunned.
To say that it is vain and unprofit
able, is indeed, to say too little; for
ihe habit of thinking with a view
to conversational effect, will in
evitably corrupt the understanding,
which 'will never again be sound
Ancient Laws. It is question
able whether the age improves in
common sense. Some of the ancient
laws of Massachusetts arc worthy
of consideration at the present day.
In 1642 there was a law providing
that "those who do not teach, by
themselves or others, their children
or apprentices, so much learning as
may enable them to perfectly read
the English tongue, and knowledge
of the capital laws, shall be lined
twenty shillings for each neglect
therein." In those days it was also
thought proper that no interference
should prevent suitable marriages.
A law of 1G41 reads that " if any
Eerson shall wilfully or unreasona
ly deny any child timely of con
venient marriage, or shall exercise
any unnatural severity toward
them, such children shall have lib
erty to complain to authority for
redress in such cases."
"Why Women Marry.
Some close observer of social rela
tions, having looked about among
his married female acquaintances,
ventures to give the following list,
with an attempt to indicate the
reasons which influence many to
Number one has married for a
home. She got tired of working in
a factory, cr teaching school. She
thought married life on earth was
but moonlight walks, buggy rides,
new bonnets and nothing to do.
Well, she has got her home;
whether or not she is tired of the
incumbrance, this, -deponent saith
not, inasmuch as this deponent
does not vow possibly know.
Number two married because she
had seven younsr sisters and a papa
nnfh r r " --vwJ Bnue.al.v Hnrton
Perhaps sxreiiad better have con
sulted her own interest by taking
in light washing of going out by the
day to work.
Number three married because
Mrs. sounded so much, better than
Miss. She was twenty-nine yoars
and eleven months old, and another
month would have transformed her
into a regular old .maid. Think
how awful that would have been !
Number four married 'because
she wanted somebody to pay her
bills. Her husband married pre
cisely for the same reason, so they
are both repenting at leisure. "
Number Ave married because
she was poor and wanted riches.
She never counted on all the other
things that were inseparable from
those coveted riches.
Number seven married because
she thought she would like to trav
el. But Mr. Number Seven chang
ed his mind afterward, and all the
traveling she has done has been be
tween the well and the back kitch
Number eight married out of
spite, because her first love had
taken to himself a second leve.
This piece of letaliation might have
done her good at the time, but in
the long run number eight found it
did not pay.
Number nine married because
she had read novels and "sympa
thy." Sompathy is. a fine thing,
but it cools down at a rapid rate if
the domestic kettle is not kept
boiling, and the domestic turkey is
done. Novels and housekeeping
don't run very well together in
harness, to use a sporting term, and
number nine's supply of sympathy
don't hold out very long.
Is umber ten married because she
loved her husband with all her
heart and soul. And she loves him
still, and will probably continue to
love hitn, and is the happiest wife
in the world so she says.

From the first years of tho war
the retrocession of Alexandria
county, Virginia, to the District of
Columbia, ha3 been more or less
agitated by persons having inter
ested motives, political or other
wise, in view. A short time before
the expiration of his term in the
Senate Mr. Wade brought in a bill
annulling the act of 1846, consign
ing back to Virginia such of its
original territory as was comprised
within the limits of the District of
Columbia. Mr. Wade did not suc
ceed in obtaining action on his bill,
and the matter rested for two 'or
three years. Of late, however,
those interested have renewed in
a very active manner the agita
tion of this subject. The position
now taken is that the act f 1846
was illegal and void ; and that

Attempt to Get a Husband.
Bottlebury, of Camden, will never
drive in to the ereek to save another
woman from drowning. He saw a
girl named Sparks tumble in the
river the other day off a boat, and
he instantly plunged in after her,
caught her by the dress and swam
to ihe shore with her. As soon as
they were on dry land Miss Sparks
gave a hysterical scream, flnng her
arm around Bottlebury's neck and
fainted. Just then the father came
up with the rest of the family, and
perceiving the situation, bedashed
up to Bottlebury, grasped his hand
and said: "Take her my
take her ! It is hard to
up ! it wrenches
father's heart but
is yours. Jiiess you, my
dren, bless you !" Then
Sparks cried, and she said she hoped
Harriet would be happy. The
Sparks manifested their emotions
by climbing up Bottlebury's legs
and pulling his coat tails, while
Harriet come to, and laying her
head on Bottlebury's 3houIder and
whispered: 44-Kiss me, darling."
Bottlebury amazed and indignant,
tore himself away and tied. He
was arrested that afternoon on a
charge of breach of promise ; and
on trial the jury gave Miss Sparks
two hundred dollars damages. Bot
tlebury has intimated to his confi
dential friends that if any other
woman intends to fall overboard
near him, she will find it to her ad
vantage to learn to swim first.

A Town Hill boy was awakened
by a severe tooth-ache Thursday
night, and signified to his father by
sundry howles and the frequent re
petition of the name of Moses, that
some sort of attention should be
paid to him. The parent aroused
at once and set to work to relieve
the pain. He put a saucer of alco
hol on the stove and touched a
match to the liquid. While it was
blazing he took hold of the saucer
to carry it to the bed Tor the purpose
of advancing some operation calcu

The Deadly Evils of Gossip.
I have known a country society
which withered away all to noth
ing under the dry rot of gossip only.
Friendships once as firm as granite
dissolved to jelly, and then away
to water, only because of this ; love
that promised a future as enduring
as heaven; ana truth, evaporated
into a morning mist that turned to

that would never cool
never cool again be
tween them, only because of this;
and a husband and his young wife,
each straining at the hated lash,
which in the beginning had been
the golden bondage of a God-blessed
love, sat mournfully by the side of
the grave, where all their love and
joy lay buried, and because of this.
.1 have seen faith transformed to
mean douht, hope give place to
grim dispair and charity take on
itself the features of black malevo
lence, ail becAiuMj of the fell words
of scandal, aud the magic mutter
tngs of gossip.
Great crimes work great wrongs,
and the., deeper tragedies of life
spring from its larger passions ; but
Svoeful and melancholy are the ua
catalogued tragedies that issue from
gossip and detraction ; most mourn
ful the shipwreck often made of no
ble natures and lovely lives by the
bitter winds and dead alt-waters of
slander. So easy to say, yet so hard
to refute throwing blame on the
innocent, and punishing them as
uilty, it unable to pluck out the
ings they never see, and to silence
ords they never heard. Gossip

ruellest weapons "ruan .has- for his

Every subscriber to The Aldine for
the year 1874 will receive a pair of
chromos. The original pictures were
painted In oil for the publishers of The
Aldine, by Thomas Moran, whose great
Colorado picture was purchased by
Congress for ten thousand dollars. The
subjects wero chosen to represent "The

in The White Mountains, New Hamp

The difference in" the nature of the
scenes themselves is a pleasing contrast.
