AMONG the uovel sights to be seen
at the National Capitol now, is the
large number of headless trunks parad
ing round the House of Representa
tives as members of Congress.
THE cabinet makers have not yet
dually agreed upon the appointments
of Gov. I'attison, and it begins to be
seriously apprehended that the Gov
ernor will have to attend to this busi
ness himself.
THE Rev. Richardson, a prominent
Methodist preacher in Washington, it
is anuouueed, made the defence of the
Star-route thieves the burden •>! his
Thanksgiving sermon. He is said to
have beeu very severe upon the De
partment of Justice ami the prosecu
tion generally.
uses forcible but not inappropriate lan
guage, when he designates the Star-route
thieves "the worst hand of organized
scoundrels that ever existed since the
commencement of the Government."
Since Richardson of the Washington
pulpit has joined the band or at least
become the defender of the innocent
stalwart lambs, the Attorney General
may perhaps, modify his opinion.
REMORS come from Washington
that a hostile meeting is about to take
place between Senator-elect Riddle
berger of Virgiuia and Page M'Carty
a correspondent,* and that the com
batants are under surveillance of the
Chief of Police from Richmond. If
the fools want to shoot at each other,
why not? Why need the police med
dle with the innocent amusement of
the game-cocks.
CLAYTON M'MICTIAKL, proprietor of
the Philadelphia Xorth Amrrirnn. has

THE Methodist Conference in
Texas has entered a vigorous protest
against ministers deserting their min
isterial calling to engage in secular
employment. So great is the demand
for husiocss men in the "Lone Star
State" and so strong the appeal to
enterprise, that the church finds
it difficult to restrain the clergy with
in hounds to sustain the church
organization. Many of its brigh
test lights abandon their "divine
mission" to embark in pursuits
to swell their exchequers, in specu
lative enterprise. •
Wwis, of Virginia, who in certified
by the Re-adjuster returning board, a*
Congressman at-targe, elect, i* also
the United Slate* District Attorney,
finding that hi* *eat i* to be contented
in Congress on the ground of shame
less and extensive fraud* ha*, ?Fw*/y,
perhaps, concluded to investigate the
charge* himself a* District Attorney.
He therefore propose* that the Grand
•Jury of the United Slate* go into the
case at once, ao a* to afford him the
opportunity to certify a* a Federal
officer that he i* all right and hi* par

however, have *ome doubt* of the wis
dom of this Wise movement aud en

selves as to the honesty of Mr. Wise's

Congress convened on Monday last,
and were rapped to order by Speaker
Kciler. After the report of the tariff
commission ami a few bills aul resolu
tions ttcre offered, the President's mes
sage was reud. His recommendations
in regard to the reduction of internal
taxes are sweeping, proposing to retain
only those on distilled spirits. His
recommendations on the subject of
civil service reform ami assessments
are very well and seem to favor the
Pendleton hill, but ufter the abandon
ed profligacy of the late campaign in
which he lent the whole patrouage of
the government to political despera
does, like Mahone, Cameron and oth
ers of equal infamy, to enforce ussc.-s
--nients through the Hubbell organiza
tion to bebaueh elections, the recom
mendations are somewhat thin. On
the subject of tariff revision, "so as to
equalize the public burden among all
classes and occupations," the enlarge
ment of the free lists and "a substan
tial reduction" of duties upon manu
factures of cotton, iron, steel, woo''
''ugar, molasses, and silk the message
will startle tho protectionists, and
throw Judge Kelley into hysterics.
The President evidently favors a "tariff
for revenue only," hut is willing to
have discrimination "in the acquit
ment of details as to afford aid and
protection to domestic labor." The
message upon the whole is a creditable
one, but lengthy, and we have no space
for it at present.
THE Democratic party of Pennsyl
vania have for many years been sjwak
ing and writing and protesting against
the rule of bosses and rings, but the
Republicans only began to realize that
they were degraded to the position of
mere slavish followers, two yerrs ago,
when Wolf raised the standard of re
volt, and declared that the rank and
file of the " grand old party" were en
titled to equal rights with Don Cam
eron and Matt ({nay. A portion of
the party sympathizing in these views,
declared their indepedence, and have
fought a creditable "batleof freedom."
Tho bosses were wounded, iu the en
counter, but they are not dead, ami it
now remains to be seen whether the
protesting Republicans will maintain
their independence or accept the yoke
and again submit to the Boss mastery
Don may tamporise hut he will not
capitulate, and we expect to see him
"next year" at the head of the Repub
lican column directing its movements
in the old rut, as lively as ever. He
inherited the right to command the
Republican Federals in the Cameron
domain, and those who will not follow
must leave, and identify their
fortune with tho Democracy, with
whom bosses will not be recognized,
nor rings tolerated.
THERE doe* not appear to be any
■triking evidence yet to sustain Judge
Folgcr's prediction that Government
securities would depreciate $10,000,*
000 in the event of a Democratic tri
umph at the late election. The Demo
crats are supposed to have been some*
what successful, particularly in New
York and Pennsylvania, and the only
evidence to be gathered from the re.
suit thus far is that the people were
not so easily deceived and alarmed as
the Judge imagined when he made
that declaration. These sensational
warnings against the Democracy are
becoming less potent every year, and
now even a tariff scare is found insuf
ficient to produce a ripple of ex
THE Supreme Court of the United
States have decided that the title to

1,100 acre* opposite Washington in
Virginia, which the United States
have wrongfully held from the heirs of

surrendered. On thia> property, the
United States have erected a Fort and
established a National Cemetery, and
