NBWS GATHERER Wahington Letter. No Soothing Syrup, It starts in with all tho indications of a vory earnest Congress. There is a deep air of gravity about it that other Congresses Jiave not had Thoro is a sonso of responsibility depicted in- the contracted brows of tho Congressmen and the absorbed expression of their countenances. The punctuality and attendance of the members of the House is some­ thing remarkable, The almost uni­ versal topic of discussion is finance, and for once they appear to bo intent upon what they are hor© for. The silver dobato is on in the House, It will rageuntil August 28, Accor­ ding to the arrangement perfected between' the factions, all of the free- silver ratios will first be voted upon in turn. As a last resort of tho free silver men, the Bland-Allison act will come in for debate and ballot, and last of all,* the proposition for uncon- ditional repeal will be put to the test. Tho silver men contend that a vote will never bo taken upon the prope sition to repeal; that one of the ratios is certain to be first adopted, The repeal men are equaliy confident. There fa nothing more uncertain at present, than what the action of the Senate will be on tho question of the repeal of tho Shorman law, but the impression is very genoral that an unconditional repeal of tho law can be got through tho House by a good majority if there is discreet manage­ ment of the administration forces. The absenco of Mr. Cleveland .from the city at this time, has caused a great deal of talk, and in some quar­ ters there is a disposition to associate it with tho situation in Congrest, It is but just to say, howovor, that this idea is J>y no means general, Mr. Cleveland's personal, published state- men^ of tho reasons for his departure corresponds exactly with what would anyhow have been the impression of all thoso who know what a strain ho has been under sinco his inaugura­ tion. There is probably no man in tho United States, no mattor what his private business troubles might be in these hard times, who has been undor greater mental or physical strain than has tho Executive, There is no doubt that he is worn down and that his health has suffered greatly, A great many narrow minded par­ tisans have been tickling themselves with delight in anticipation of the \fun that Tom Eccd is going to have' now that Congress has buckled down to work, How ho will quiver with deliSht over tho situation; how ho will throw tho country into convul sive merriment at every sign of legis lative distress and difficulty. Those who know the big, fat man, those who have caught some insight into his purposes and methods, can afford to smile at tho ignorance displayed in such chatter. Thoy know that ho is neithor a foolish clown nor a heart­ less ghoul. Ho is past master of epi­ gram and satire. Mr. Reed is, withal, something of a patriot. His wit is the embroidery upon a solid fabric of intellect. His satire is often the airy froth that beads the strong liquor of philosophy, As I saw him yesterday pacing tho pavement in front of his hotel, he presentod a massive picture of deep thought and seriousness. Mr, Reed realizes tho prsont situation. He will find no food for shallow jest in tho calamity that now threatens the nation. One may well bo sorry for tho creaturo who is so light of mind and so arid of heart that he can look for either fun or vengeance in this dire emorgancy; and it is a good deal of a mistake to class ' 'Tom'Reed' with the carrion-crows and harle­ quins of politics. An interesting feature of tho Treas­ ury is tho \Conscience Fund\ which was oponed by the register to show from time to timo tho receipts of moneys by tho government, from unknown persons. Theso moneys are covered into the general treasury as miscellaneous receipts and may'be used like other assets of the govern­ ment for any purpose that Congress may deem proper.\ Tho account was oponed in 1811, and up to last April thoro has been received an aggregate amount of $266,089.56. Remittances are received almost weekly, and as a rule, the letters are not signed. Frequntly* they are forwarded by clergymon at tho request of penitents. Nearly all the communications are anonymous and acknowledgements arothoroforo made through tho press. Four millions of dollars is a large •urn of money' and that is the amount upon which the government is pay ing interest at tho rato of 4 per cent per annum in tho shapo of rentals for buildings owned by privato parties in this city. The need for-more pub - lie buildings forms the burden of recommendations which are repeated year after year with tho quiet energy of despair. It is doubtful whether • any intelligent attempt will bo made fcy tho present Congress to improve a| condition of affairs, which is each year growing more disgraceful to the government, No sarsaparilla, with its sticky, sickly-sweet thickness, clogging- the sys­ tem and giving but ephemeral life to laggard appetite— none at IhfSf reach out and strangle j»rm life, the root ol all disease You, sufferer with Erysipelas, Kidney Disease; you, Rheumatic Cripple, Malarial-Poisoned, Scrofulous, you want no temporary relief—you want PERMANENT CURE. Kill the germs with GERMA-VICI, For Sale by H. M. LITTEL TH B OREAT DISEAS E OERM. DESTROYER. Financial oratory is not in demand and the only persons who appear to be thoroughly ignorant of this fact: aro the members of Congress who lire preparing long-winded speeches and making an effort to induce a perspir­ ing country to listen to them. The ratio between Congressional talk and Congressional action is just about forty-fivo to one. At The Exposition. In a privato letter from N. S. R Beal we find the following: In my opinion, tho state of Ohio has placed herself far in advance of any state which makes an exhibit in tho fair grounds. The idea is this: Ohio has a large, plain and spacious state building, It contains little for show; scarcely more than chairs and tables for the accommodation of visitors, In front of her building she has erected a large square obelisk of granite on gneiss. It is well polished, though like some of her poople it appears somewhat plain and squat. At the height of about eight feet the column contracts and becomes circular, leav­ ing a level shelf about 16 inches wide running around the entire circum­ ference. Standing on this shelf, and encircling tho circular shaft, which is about six feot high, aro seveu of tho plain, homely men of Ohio, Crowning the shaft is a colossal female form, wrought in bronze,— the genius of Ohio. She stsnds with her feet just above tho heads of the ptain Ohio men, her head slightly bowed, regarding tbem with a loving look,—and with hor arms and hands extended broodingly over them is uttering the words with which the Roman Cornelia answered the Egypt ian Ptolemy many centuries ago ( when he offered her unlimited gold and jewels to become his wife. Hor answer, pointing to her sons, was, \Theso are my jewels.\ So, proudly says the genius of Ohio, pointing to her plain men: \These are my jew­ els ;\—which I cannot but think is, taken in conjunction with her plain state house and meager exhibit inside, a significant suggestion; as if to say;—all of you. sister states, have brought to tbeso spacious grounds, specimens of your great wealth, your costly wares and pro ductions of all kinds and classes. '. simply show you my plain honest men, Thoy have made and can make again, all that you so proudly exhibit here - \These are my jewels;\ What more is necessary? Without ques tiop, Ohio with this one significant piece of statuary, is entitled to the palm. Penfleld Centre.

For some time post the manage ment of tho West Shore railroad has been looking forward to the time when tho vast class of com­ mercial peoplo, who desiro to visit tho World's Fair, at the least possi bio expenso, with the greatest amount of comfort, To this end their entire passenger equipment has boon rebuilt and upholstered and fitted with toilet service, high back easy seats, making comfortable travel and bringing tho cars of this lino up to tho highest standard Tho World's Fair special trains will be tho most modern ever run and tickets aro now on salo by thorn to Chicago and return for one faro for tho round trip, tickets being valid for ten days.
