What Has Iho llouso Done'
Tli it is n fair question ntul deserves a fair
answer. "Nothinj:," is tho answer if you
read the Republican papers. Worse than
nothing, If you read some of thu so-called
independent journals, hut tho facts are tho
action of the House, while it lias cxpo-td
unexpected and a hitherto unheard-of
amount of corruption, has also laid the foiin
ilations for nn immense saving iu taxes.
While the revenue has fallen oil' $1 1,000,000
in the estimates of the Secretary ol tliuTrcas
ury, tho fact that there was a Democratic
House, and the persistent efforts of thin ma
jority in the House to save money nnd taxes
have resulted in making the income of the
Government cqtml to its cxpense.s,and paved
the way for a far better result the coming
fiscal year than the past. Rut we are asted
to make specifications as to the retrenchment
and reform policy, and conduct of the House
and we give them with pleasure:
The preciit House of Representatives has
douo moro real reform work during the past
six months than all tho Congresses for the
past twenty years, and if it could have tho
support of the Senate it would make the
present congress an immense blessing to tho
people. Just hero now nio somo of the re
sults of this good .work in detail, which wo
condense from the ll.iltimoro Gazette;
First, It has not elected a Speaker like
bcliuyler Colfax, who used his high ollice to
enrich hiuvelf. It has not elected a Speak
er like James G. Illaine, who used his posi
tion to inlluenco legislation in favor of rail
road .subsidies; who acted as tlio agent of a
fire-arms company ; who sold rulings nnd
legislation for so much cash down in the
shape of railroad bonds.
Second, Since it met lust December it hat
not been devising ways and means, day after
day, lo get money out of tlio Treasury. On
the contrary, it bus cut down the extrava
gant estimates of the departments, and if the
Senato will pass its bills, lias reduced the
expenses of tho Government nearly $40,000,-
000 per annum. Instead ot making placet for
tho creatures of tho admiuistiatiou, it hat
abolished every ollice that was not absolute
Third, It has not legislated a frcedman's
bank into existence- and placed in tho power
of a lot of men lo steal tho savings of tho
poor colored men of the South, amounting
to millions of dollars. On tho contrary, it
bus taken the robbers and swindlers who did
that infamous work by the throat, exposed
their rascality and directed thoollicersof tiio
Government to send their names beforo tlio
Vourth, It lias gono into President Grant'a
cabinet and dragged out of it ono of his
trusted advisers, who abused his high place,
who robbed the dead veterans of the war,
who aided in cheating tho living soldiers on
the plains, who demanded money for every
appointment ho made, ami brought him to
trial fur his many crimes !
J'illi, It lias shown how tno funds ot tho
so-calltd departments of justice, liavo beep
used for the puiposo of controlling elections
in thu South and in the North ; how the
President put his hand in tho public Treas
ury aud took out money to aid iu his own
re-election. It bus exposul tho villainy of
Williams, llio rascality of Davenport, and
tlio general eoirtiption of that entiro branch
of the public service.
SLrtli, It has stretched its hand across tho
water to London and Bitved tho honor of tlio
country by collaring the minister nud em
bassador extraordinary, who was using Ids
inlluenco as our representative to bull" n
worthless mining slotk and rob the English
Seeenth, It hut shattered tho District of
Columbia Ring into a thousand atoms ; in
dicted Itabeoek for complicity with sufe bur
(rlius; madu Harrington a fugitive from jus
tice, ii ml exposal tlio rottenness and corrup
tion of llio present Commissioners,
Jiiyhth, It has instituted a rigid scrutiny
lulu tlio management of tho Nuvy Depart
ment, exposed tho corrupt operations of tho
Cutlets and other plunderers.
AWi, It has laid baro tho straw-bid sys
tem in the Post Ofilco Department, and
proved that tho country ban been annually
robbed of hundreds of thousands of dollars
for carrying letters which wero never written
over routes that never had an existence,
7bith, It hat exposed tho infamies of
the Indian Ring, shown how the Indians aro
driven on tho wnr path that army contract
ors may bo enriched nnd tlio Treasury bled.
JXnenth, It has substituted silver for tho
wretched fiuctionul currency as a step toward
specie payments ; matured a tariff bill which,
if tho Senato would agree to it, would do
moro to start gnr idlo mills and furnaces and
factories, and restoro prosperity to all classes
than any measure which could be devised,
It lint taken the control of our Indian affairs
out of tho hands of tlio thieves who hnd
chnrgo of them sojosg nnd placed them
wnero iiiey belong, in llio War Department.
It hat reorganized tlio army and closed a
thousand avenues of fraud and corruption in
In 1871 Samuel J. Tilden began his bril
liant and successful campaign ugalnst tlio
Tweed ring which bin ended in stripping
llieiu ol their spoils and Bending them to
prison or exile. In his speech at Cooper
Institute in November of that year lie made
the following pledge to the peoplo of New
York : ''lly tho blessing of God according to
tlio strength that is given Iodine, if you will
not grow weary and faint, and falter on tho

civil government shall bo reformed in the
city of New York,bul until the Statu of New
York sliall once more have a pure and irre
proachable judiciary, und until the example
of this grcut Statu shall bo Bet up to bo fol
lowed by all tlio other States." The peoplo
.of New York did stand by Samuel J.Tilden
aud lio nobly redeemed the pledges of his
speech in tho overthrow of the gigantic rings
that ruled llio City aud State. Now this
ablo and intrepid champion of tho peoplo
against the plunderers is invited to tho per
iornninco of a far larger and more diflicult
tusk, the purgation ol tho National Govern
ment from the corruption that pollutes it.

of the country vvbicli lie gave to the peoplo
of New York, and sustained by the ballots
of his fellow-citizens ho will rcdeeein them.

following letter of congratulation from Gen.

Secretary of War, iu reply to a letter from
Mr. Clyiuer, the chairman of the Wnr Ex

Attorney General Williams' landaulet did.
It enabled tho Relknap family to rido out in

ceptions and parties givou during the season.
Rut why tho government should bo taxed
$10,000 fortius luxury, the AVnr Expendi
ture Committee is going to find out.
After lavishing upon greedy monopolies

Iu the early part of the Revolution, some

There was this multiplicity of flags, be

No nation had acknowledged us as belong
ing to their great family yet; in fact, we had
not quite cut loose from England, yet wo
were fighting her with all our might, and it
seemed absurd to be under her colors. In
the fight at ISunker Hill, the flag planted in
tho corner of that famous redoubt was of
bluo bunting, with tho cross of St. George iu
the corner, and a pino tree, that sumo pine
tree, in the upper right hand quarter of tho

Finally, on the 14th of June, 1770, Con
gress, which met then in Philadelphia,
settled upon our styleof flag. "Itslmll have,"
said they, "thirteen stripes.altpmate red and
white, und the union of the States shall bo
indicated by thirteen stars, white in a bluo
field, representing a new constellation."
It was not until about forty years ago'that
it was i ecided to add another star for every
new Stale as it joined the Union. So that
the constellation as it it now, with nearly
forty stars in it, lias grown a good deal from
the original thirteen. Rut the stripes still
remained as of the first little hand of Stutes

On March 20lh, 1848, a remarkable phe
nomenon occurred. Tho preceding winter
had been intensely cold, and the ico formed
on Lake Erie was unusually thick. Iu the
warm days of early spring, thiss mass of ice
was loosened around tho shores of tho lako
and detached from them. During tho fore
noon of tlio day named, a stiff easterly wind
moved it up the hike. A little before sunset
the wind chopped suddenly round and blow
a gale from the west. This brought tlio vast
field of ice buck again with such tremendous
forcu Unit it filled in tho neck of the lako
ami its outlet so as to form i very clfectivo
dam, that caused a remarkable diminution
iu tho outflow of the water. Of course it
needed but little timo for tlio Fulls to drain
off the water below this dam. Tho conse
buenco was that on tho morning of the fol
lowing day the river was nearly half gono.
The American channel had dwindled to ii
deep und narrow creek. Tho Ilritisli than
nel seemed to have been smitten with a
quick consumption, ami to bo fast passing
away. Far up from tho head of Goat Island
and out into tho Canadian rapids, and from
tho foot of Goat Island out beyond tho old
Tower tho water was gone. Tho rocks wero
bare, black and forbidding. The roar of
Niagara had subsided to a moan. This ex
traordinary syncope of the waters lasted all
tho day, and night closed over tho strango
ficenc. Rut during tho night tho dam gave
way. and tho ucxt morning the river was
restored in nil its strength, beauty, and maj

From tho Boston Commercial llulletin.
The janitor who had charge of Hunker
Hill monument, arriving at about half past
bcvuii Friday morning to open the premises,
found two strangers In walling. One a tall
gray bearded man in a slouch hat, risked if
they could ascend the monument.
"Yes said the custodian," "you can for
twenty-five cents," (holding out his hand.)
Tho stranger produced tho money, and Iho
custodian unlocked the door, and forthwith
poying no especial attention to bis visitor
who was looking around hlin curiously, un

"Yes, all right, go right up till you get to
The visitor and his companion did a9 they

the summit, after which they descended, and
were quietly wnlklng away, when they wero
hulled by the custodian with:
"H'yar, just write your names In this)

The gray-bearded man laughed and signed
his name, and llio two departed.

German Wives. Tho culinary art forms
a part of tho education ot women iu Germa
ny. Tho well-to-do tradesman, like the me
chanic, takes pride in seeing his daughters
good housekeepers. To clfect this object,
tho girl, on leaving school, which alio does
about fourteen years of age, goes through
the ceremony of confirmation, nnd then is
placed by her parents with it country gen
tleman or in a largo family, where she re
mains one or two years, filling what may al
most be termed tho post of servant, aud do
ing the work of one. This is looked upon
as an apprenticeship to domestic economy.
She diners from a servant, however, In this
she receives no wages ; on the contrary,
her parents often pay for tho care taken of
her, at well at for her clothing.
This is the first step in her education as
houtekeeper. She next passes, on the samo
condition, into tlio kitchen of u rich private
family, or into that of ahotelof good repute,
llore she has control of tho expenditures of
the servants employed iu it, and assists per
sonally in cooking but is always addressed
as fraulciu or miss, and is treated by tho
family with deferonco and consideration.
Many daughters of rich families receive sim
ilar training, witli this (inference, however,
that they ruceivo in a princely mansion or a
royal residence. There is a reigning queen
in Germany nt tho present time who was
trained in this way. Consequently tho wo
men in Germany uro perfect models of econ
omy. Very liemarkable.
"It it indeed remarkable," said the noble
Jenkins, sitting in his parlor conversing
with a few visitors, ''most remarkable that

world's history in letters of gold, u i woman
has ever written an op.'M or composed an
oration that could liuk her mono to undy

ono would suppose woman should reign on
au undivided throne, slio is little moro than
a menial, an humble utti udaut, waiting up
on aud subject to tho whims of her master."
Just then a woman's voice, from the back
yard, split the June nir liko tho sweep of a
sabro "John Jenkins I you just como out

suds while I hang out tho clothes, or I'll cut

And then the committee rose, nnd tho
noble Jenkins, being excused by unanimous,
consent, tho House soon after adjourned.
