Pain Sunday. Id tbc Roman Catholic churches yesterday tbsre were large congregations to participate In the opening ceremonies of what la known as Hoi j Week, beginning with Palm Sunday. The services during the week are or the most solemn character, and typify the death and passion of the Saviour. Falm Sunday Is so-called from the ceremony of Messing branches of ralm, olive or foae other tree to be distributed among the faithful to carry in procession In remembrance of what the Jewish people did when Jesas Christ, six days before bis passion, made his triumphant entry Into Jerusalem riding on an ass's cult, as had Been foretold by the prophet, and was received by the joyous acclamations of the multitude as well as those of his disciples. The blessing or the palm takes place before the celebration or the Mass, and Is attended with iLuch ceremony. Alter the Mass It is distributed ami Titr the conmreeation. In former times It was the custim to form a procession and march. thrrugh the church nearing me paim, oui mis has 01 late years been discontinued except by the clergy and the assistants. The ceremony of Messing Is lengthy, and includes while in pro-press a scries ol cbaunts by the choir and clergy, and the usual sprinkling with holy water and turning with Incense. Included In the Mass of ttis dav Is the recital ot the I'atsljn according to "Matthew, xxvl and xxvil, nwlocr to th extreme length of which the usual sermon Is tmiucd. At the Mass on Tuesday the re .oing of the rafflcn according to St. Mark, xlv and iv, Is rtntinued, and on Wednesday acco-Uiag to dt. Luke, xxu and xxiiL Metropolitan Church. Dr. Newman received an uni recedented we"-Mixc'uponbis resuming tho charge j t erJay Eccrning, and one of which any pastor might bo rrocd. The audience was very densely packed, every atailablc place was rilled, and before the scrv.ces cemmenced many went away vexed, not being able to obtain standing room. Among three present were tbc President and his family, Secalcrs Crag.n. Allison. ex-I'ostmatterGeneral Crewell and oihers. At the close or the services the Doctor's Iriends came forward and gave h'm a cordial greeting. In his introductory remarks Dr. Newman said lam here to-day by your affectionate, earnest and jerMStent request, and by the autborityof the presiding bishop of cur conference. My judgment was that another should have come. I had chosen another place, not that I loed New Ycrk more, or Washington less, but I shrank frtmthe responsibility of being again the FARTOR Or THE OI1EAT KATIOXAL CHURCH cf cur denomination. In New York I wonld have had less labor, less anxiety, responsibility and salary, and, thereiore, 1 chose to go to New 1 crk. lint it is not optional with a Methodist taster to choose his own parish. lie must go where the bishop sends him. 1 was fully aware that In you I have friends who are tree, and who have been constant in r d re) 'it. and no Cbrlstain pastor has ever bad triced more sincerely attached to him, and more earnest in their affection than I have found la ym. and my affection for you Is as earnest and sincere, and has been as abiding. It will always give me Ereat pleasure to hare yoa rerer to my successors and predecessors In this church in complimentary terms. If It were possible for you to speak otherwise of them, such expressions must rot le uttered In my presence. One or them is la beat en, the other on earth. Tell me of some ClXniOVS TRAIT 1H THEIR CHARACTERS, rf seme grand sermon they preached: of sotne noale deed or charity: some sublime act of devotion to God, and I snail listen joyfully and be thrice happy. The Doctor then went on to sv that he ex pected of the people that this mast not be a po- 1 Jilirai cnurcn cr merely a social courcn, dui must be a spiritual church for the advancement or truth, the Increase of piety, the well-being ol fccicty and the conversion ot the people to Christ. 1 propose to do my share toward bringing about this result. Whatever Information 1 have gathered during my travels in Europe I propose to lay upon these altars, and I take the liberty to announce that In the course ol a week or two I shall cemmesce a course of Sunday crsnlng sermons en the "religions of the world," and cam-raring and contrasting them with Christianity, and showing wherein Christianity is superior to them. Next winter I shall give a course of even-icg sermons on the "exhumed cities of the Euphrates valleys." showing the wonderlul agreement between the records that have been discovered and ttc Bible, and the remarkable fulfillment of propleey. The Doctor then announced that as next Sunday being THK TTH AXXIVERSAUT cf the organization of the Metropolitan Church, there will be appropriate services on the occasion. He then preached from the text John vl: 12: Uather up the fragments," the subject being seeking truth as addressed to persons who are perplexed with Imaginary or real difficulties In the Christian religion. He recommended obedience to the ten commandments and the practice In every day life of the sermon on the Mount. He described the different classes of minds and the methods of snch minds In the Investigation or truth, and asserted that as TRUTH IS A rSIT A3D rSITCKSAL the sincere seeker will find what he wants somewhere and that he should accept. When be gathered up the tragmenta from tbc hlstcry or nations, fragments from the lives of men, fragments from the Ulble. such as the ten commandments and the sermon on the Mount, fragments of the church In the lives of its own exalted characters on the one hand In contradistinction with the lives of its un. faithful members on tho other band, and said were all human characters to fall there is one peerless character one sublime fragment Jesus Christ, to whom you can cling. First Congregational Church. The paster. Rev. Dr Rankin, preached In tho naming, from Matthew ill "Bring forth, therefore, fruits meet for repentance." He began by saying that there are two ways of determining a man's spiritual condition; one Is to ask what Church he belongs to, II his mlnlsterls In the line cf apostolic descent, and If he have been properly Inducted into the sacred office. Judged by this standard, the men to whom John the Kaptist ad-dressed the text wero the very elite of his bearers. They were the high-churchmen of their time, lluthebad another standard for them. Hi had no irreverence for Father Abraham or his descendants, but he did not place Implicit reliance upon origin or ordinances as tests of genuine character. And these Pharisees and Saddueees, who had come out to his field preaching, he wished no patronage lor them; he anew that his baptism would not help them. He calls tbem what they were, a generation of vipers. Who has armed y cu? HepentanceT "Bring forth the fruits of repentance," and let your aiiostolle decsent alone. Show that you are the children of Abraham, not by genealogies, but by a holy lire. The subject discussed was the fruit and test of lepentance. Repentance is a life, a state, as well as an act. There are more acts or repentance among the impenitent than the penitent. They are all the time ceasing to do evil, but SEVER LliKSUIO TO DO WELL; all the time learning, but never coming to a knowledge or the truth; climbing up and slipping back; never holding to what they gain. Many people conceive of entrance to a Christian lite, as like going past the gate-keeper Into tho cars, where a ticket Is called for. Hepentance is the condition or entrance. But some of the most hopeless cases in the way of reform have been those of men who teemed to haTe the greatest facility In acta of repentance. They will weep and wring their bands and pray enough to break your heart; but they will go straightway from these acts of contrition ana repeat the same offence right over again. It Is often argued that It Is a had practice to exact pledges of the Intem- rate. because, If broken, tbey are demoralising. f made to be broken they ought not to bs made. If made to be kept they are a good thing. Penitence In the Christian character Is llkethe ballast to a ship. It keeps It down and steadies it, so that It breasts the waves. Saya Vlnet, "Nothing is more according to God than the sadness cf a Christian after be has tinned." If sin grieves God wby should It not grieve one who calls himself a friend of God, especially when he Is the occasion of this grief t There isasnpernelal type of religion, a sort or exuberant carelessness with regard to sin, as though God would take care ol It, which Is very prevalent. But dot never becomes so much the friend of a man as to stand by him when he has sinned If that sin has not been repented or. If repentance Is a life It will bear fruit. The common conception is that repentance Is Itself a fruit; that when we have reached repentance we can stop. The very first thing which a trne penitent does is to right all the wrongs or which he has been guilty. Take the esse of the jailor or Phlllppl lor example. Before repentance he was a man as could receive, two prisoners like J?al and Silas, bruised and hleedlng, and thrust them Into the dnngeon-deep, and fasten their feet In the stocks, and then go to bed, and sleep so that nothing else than an earthquake could waken him; Imperturbable, unfeeling, professionally un-sympathetic; after repentance, as tender aa a woman, taking the same men at midnight and washing their wounds. Many people seem to think that repentance atones for wrong-doing. An unscrupulous law. frr'w.?Lt.n3randtlredof his former manner of lire, thinking of another tribunal and other witnesses, repents and Joint the church.

Thirteenth. Street HaH.t .1'"""" ? - Jt4 ..7 t7, t w ., Y """'ohm exercises, the pastor. Dr. J. H. Cuthbert, announced as his JUT Zirl "Th"e ' -V that seem $?&? bnt tbe " "" The speaker defined a proverb as the forcible expression of s common and frequently Illustrated truth. The repetition or the proverb which formed tie subject of his dlscoune twice within a short eempasr, as the same words recurred again in Proverbs xvlSJ, emphasised It and Indicates Its truth. Solomon's life Is an eminent illustration ! the truth of these words. Us upheld the practice or polygamy which then prevailed among the Jew, and which is now the custom in the East. This alone waa not Solomon's sin, but the character or his connections In cpposftlcn to Jewish law and belief. The Inevitable penalty overtook him at last. He round his path to be a way or death. There Is truth to the premise that when the evening comes there shall be light: but to SOLOMOS'B OLD AGE the light did not come. His heart, corrupted by these unlawful alliances, was hardened against his God. and be debased his beautiful temple to the worship of Moloch. The sword fell upon bis bouse; his kingdom was broken and crashed, and that star that had shone so brightly went down In the darkness of nlaht. Men. he said, who sin and carry their tins even Into religious practices are always ready to offer apologies for their shortcomings, and labor to aecelve themselves that tbelr way Is right. The most corrupt practices have in this way crept Into the Christian churches. The terrible scandal suit now pending in court In a neighboring city shows how deep corruption can and has sunk into the church. Hypocrisy tended towards this; a superficial teal tor doing, substituted for the desire of being. If ihe word or God teaches us anything It Is that the only way of deliverance from sin and the peniltles or sin Is faith In Christ, that which de-servtd the name or faltb, the confidonce or the heart. The serious consequences of unbelief are not experienced, yet, they are Impending In the luture. Though it be WRATH OF GOD, yet. aslt is only prospective. It Is not considered as Imptrtant as a passing pain In a finger. The speaker enumerated the fearful consequence! of sin which are among us; the heart-pangs, the groans, the agony or a conscience-strtckei soul. Yet we have a remedy, and ir we give It spall Is lost. Llkoaslck man who stubbornly refuses to receive the healing draught ottered lo him, till death overtakes him, if we refuse Christ we must goflown under the Inevitable curse of sin. The sieakcr described the progress of sin eating its way Into the soul, and accumulating until It becomes hateful In the eight of God. Even then the sinner can find an apology lor his sins. "There Is a way that secureth right unto man, but the ends thereor are the ways of death." The ice gjrge forms to the quiet river; the water slowly accumulates beblnd it, and then the rear-rul avalatchedescends, carrying death and devastation. Is the heart sin accumulates till at length the terrible retribution descends, not In one day, bet In one hour. In conclusion tho doctor made an appeal to his congregation to be warned In time that this judgment might not overtake them, and exhorted inch as are accustomed to speak evilly ol the way or tru'h to turn to repentance and listen to the pleading voice whispering at their ear. New York Avenne Presbyterian Church. At this church, in the evening, Rev. Dr. Mitchell, .the pastor, preached irom Psalms lv:22: "Cast thy burdens on the Lord and he shall sjs-taln thee." The speaker said we have only to look over burdened human life to understand this promise. One may be borne down by the life of a child led astray from tho path of duty and wan-dering from rectitude. Another may find cares and business the burden of his life. In looking upon the faces of bis hearers, he rancled be could discern the impress or tbe varied burdens they bear. To some it has worn ou till i; has nearly crushed them; to some the burden Is new It Is lelt, but has not marred their lives; others have not yet seen their burden, but they shall soon see and feci It, Never a morning or evening but some heart shall break uader their burdens. V, bat shall he say, who speaks for GoJ, concerning these great Hie trials? It can only be said that they are permitted of God. For some reason or other he sees that this must needs be," AKD HE TERXITS IT ALIKE TO ALU It is a mistake to suppose that Christians feci lessuftbo burdens of life than others. When Gcd sends an affliction to the Christian he means it as an affliction tbe same as to any other, but he has promised to sustain him who sustains tho burden. He does not remove tbe load, but he Is willing to help us to bear It, If we will, no bar-den Is so great as to crush us down; we will be eustalned ir we trust In God. To all who deslro help tbe text gives promise; none need bear it alone; all wbo would be helped need only look to God. In all the pages ol his book it is written, "God Is Love." In tho second consideration of the subject he said : Man Is thrown out or the course God has placed him In How tew day by day commit themselves to His care. There are none whose plans are never thwarted; none who are lree from care;none who never suffer. W hen all is well man may reel strong, and that be needs no help, but when afSlctlons approach he is powerless. When death comes ho can only sit still and sutler. Then Is seen THE 6TR0SO MAS'S GRIEr; then It would seem that the soul would cry out ror heir. Is there not something wrong In the life of that man who never looks up for help: who, when harness cares press him backward backward to the wall never remembers who has said, "Cast thy burdens on tbe Lord;" who, when some terrible temptation assails him, some dark shadow follons htm by day and by night, slug Tearful struggle for integrity, never once looks upward to tbe Father for help ? How many or as are dally asking blm to make us wise and strong lor the trials ot thfs life? Ynu and I ought to be like earthly children, who run te their parents for help. Man was not made to do without Ued. He must have him just as the rLAST xr.ST have scsshise; without him the burdens of life will grow greater day by day, till they become too heavy to be borne. You know not how many of you are doing your greatest work In teaching a child its first lessens In life. Teach that child Its dependence upon the Father. No amount of money, no ontfit in life will be ol so much valne as this. Teach him to know who It is who says, "Cast thy burdens on tbe Lord." No man has a right to take the sayings or God and put them into abstract rorm. God has given the lorm, and may he help you to teach that child to lollow In the way and to trust In him, so that when the burdens ol lire come he will look up with I&lth and say, "Thou has: Eustalned me.'r Israel Independent Church. At this church, corner or First and It streets southeast, the services were of a very Interesting character, the sermon being preached by Rev Bishop Miles, of the ?Iethodlit Episcopal Con ferencc, who took ror his text the SUh verse, 8th chapter or Paul Epistle to the Romans: "For we are saved by hope," i.c. In beginning the reverend gentleman stated that the ends ot the text already pointed out tho ract that Jews and ten-tiles alike might be saved by accepting tbe lesson orthe gospel. He dwelt at length upon the difference between genuine and counterfeit hope, which he lolly explained. Hope, said he. Is necessary la every pursuit of life, as without it all things become paralyzed, both In church and stale. It was a sentiment relt alike by saint and tinner, but It was the safe and suro index to tbe Immortality or tbe eoal. He sought to Impress upon bis hearers the danger ol hoping to become eons and daughters of the most High, and making no effort tn that direction, for hopo without worz and work without faith Is or no avail. Tbe Christian's hope Is rounded upon his ralth fa the promises of the crucified Saviour; the penitent's hope Is that he may be forgiven for fits past sins and saved upon tbe terms of the gospel, and this hope. If properly cherished, will enable Its possessor to stand unflinchingly all the trials of ibis world that he may be prepared to enter the ktngdom of Heaven. In conclusion, he nrged his bearers to stand with hope by the Christian ralth, that they might when lire's Journey was ended be anchored In that haven where there is joy and peace for evermore. Confirmation at Epiphany Church. Yesterday morning a very large audience was In attendance at Epiphany P. E. Church to witness the confirmation of nineteen persons. The Right Rev. Bishop PInkney delivered an able discourse from Luke xlx:41: "When he drew near he beheld the city and wept over It," Those confirmed were mostlr young people, the sexes being well mixed. This class was prepared by Rev. Mr. Boss, assistant rector of the parish, and they were prepared in a very creditable manner. The absence of tbe rector was deeply regretted both by tbe congregation and tbe bisbop, and It la with great pleasure thafrthe announcement 13 made that he will be ready for duty on Easter Sunday. That Treasury Baronets. Washington-, March S3, l:7j. To the EttUor of the Aaltouat Republican: Sin: A charming little romance it Is which our correspondent of the Chicago Timet publishes about a "golden-haired Treasury glrL" Charm-lng, verily: and yet It troth charming and stranger still than fiction. Except that 1 am an humble lover of Justice, nothing should Induce me to lift the veil which screens the modest, on-assuming heroism ol a life well known to me the lire of our "golden-natred" Camilla's hall-sister. This black-eyed heroine of mine, so cruelly misrepresented, has for ten long years, "through summer's heat and winter's snow," wearied and tolled over a Government desk, the sole rapport ot an Invalid mother and young half-sister, also half-sister to Camilla. She, Camilla the beauty, wedded rank and wealth, and for the years when she lives at a princess tolls on faithfully the half-sister. Together tbey entered the Treasury, one but for a few months; the other Is there still. I cannot cay a baron "wooed and won" her, but I can say that oners as noble could not tempt her; rank and wealth could not boy her brave heart, since she could not give It, is there no pathos here? One other sister there Is Camilla's own and only. Where is she? Tread, lng the marble halls ol Madam, tbe Baroness? Alas! no. Unaided, alone, she drags out her youth In other marble halls the halls of oar beaevolent Spinner. To those acquainted with tbe "trne" history there Is, Indeed, a romance. It is with the oce devotion tender and beautiful, patiently enduring; with the other, lapped In ease and luxury, rorgetfulnesa, or, at best, indifference to the necessities which exist now, as fifteen years since, when they two, Camilla and the half-sister, began tbe noble effort left forSallle , my heroine, to complete. "Lvs." Eait Washington Hotel. Tbe United States steamer Dispatch, that ran aground in the Eastern Branch on Friday morn lng, was hauled off by the United States steamer Triana and a tug, about 8 o'clock Saturday morning, and resumed her trip to New Orleans.

Tbe people on the line of Fourth and Sixth streets east complain bitterly of the horrible condition in which these streets are at present, from Pennsylvania avenue to the river.

To the Editor of the Xatlonal R.ezntbltean: Sir: Allow me to suggest through the columns or your paper tbe practicability of adopting, in tbe various spelling matches throughout the land, a system or writing out each word berore submitting It for trial. The eye Is rarely if ever deceived, and may be relied on safely. II the word looks correct when written out, there Is little risk to be encountered. When the ear Is depended on. and the syllables composing the words on trial are accentuated peculiarly, either by design or otherwise, mistakes unavoidably occur by tbose who are best Informed In tbe construction and analysis ol words.

Tbe whole party tore down Eleventh street, with Mr. Green whetting away and bringing up the rear. When Green appeared ready to give up the chase Jaky allowed nimself to be caught.

To the Editor af the Kattonal Republican: Sir: In your Issue of the 18th instant, gross in-justice was done me by Implicating mynamoln an alleged " bounty swindle."

Annie Sadler, as Mrs. Twitter, showed herself to be fully at home upon tbe stage, and one would have Imagined that she wat playing tbe Injured wile In earnest. Miss McNall was up In her part at Jane, and was eloquent In the praises other "dear Jerry." Captain Rogers, as Mr. Twitter, had a good conception of the part, and was extremely Irritable and Jealous, and we opine some day he will know how It It nimself. Frank Jones, as the victim, was a success. Mr. Jonet possesses considerable talent, and will, no doubt, at tome lutnre day, be numbered among the professionals. CrypU Palmoni, as Jerry Clip, hat no equal among amateurs, and may be considered a liar. The entertainment irat a success. HOWARD TJinVEBSITY. The Iiw Department Alumni Squabble. Tbe following card it published at the request of the gentlemen whose names are appended: The undersigned, constituting the executive committee of the alumni association of the law department of Howard University, having been authorised to state In brief, for tbe Information or such or the public as may have been misled by certain anonymous communications in the dally papers of this city with reference to the aetlon of tbe assodatlonywbereby Mr. D.Augustus Straker claims to have been ejected from the presidency, submit the following as the true statement orthe case: On the etb instant the law gradnates of the University assembled and formed an alumni association. At the next meeting, held on tbe 8th lnitant, a constitution was adopted and officers were elected, thirteen- persons being present and taking part In the organisation. On the vote for election of president thirteen ballots were east, Mr. Straker being elected by s majority of one, having received seven votes. Six gentlemen are known to have voted for another candidate, thus leaving the unpleasant but necessary and Irresistible conclusion that Mr. Straker was elected by his own vote. At a subsequent adjourned meeting, in consequence of this undignified act, the constitution was rescinded. On the 19th Instant, by a large majority, at the largest meetlsg held, a reorganisation was eflected, and the fallowing officers elected: President, John H. Cook: first vice president, Joseph T. Settle; second vice president, O. S. B. Wall; third vice presldent,CharIes Tabor; record, lng secretary, H. B. Fry; corresponding secretary, J. W. Cromwell; treasurer, William Waring; executive committee, James H. Smith, George VT. Mitchell and Abram W. Shadd, (the president and corresponding secretary being ex officio members, thereor.) Abram W. Shadd, of Mississippi, wss elscted to deliver the annual address at tbe next anniversary, and George W. Mitchell, cf this city, as alternate. J. W. Cromwell, Jakes H. Smith, J so. H.Cook, G. W. Mitchell, Executive Committee, fee. the straker side. The friends of Mr, Straker state that whllo the subject of electing new officers was under consideration a discussion ensued, during which Mr. John E.Blanhelm made the following remarks in bis delenee: A captious opposition to Mr. Straker's administration was manifested on the part or one or two from the time ot his election, but no one thought each political tricks and chicanery as were resorted to by bis opponents at the last meeting wonld have been put In practice by them. Justice and good policy dictate that Mr. Straker should contlnuo to act as president ol the association until the term expires ror which he was elected. lie Is a gentleman or ability, and has won as high a reputation as a young lawyer as any other graduate from this department, lie Is a scholar. His efforts In the courts and his public writings bear testimony or this fact. To accept the unjust treatment aimed at Mr. Straker would be an affront to the officers of this Institution who hold blm In esteem, as well as It would be a stigma upon our common brotherhood. It Is said he should not have been elected to tbe position of president because he was not a practicing lawyer, but a clerk. I feel assured that you, gentlemen, will not permit so foolish an objection to go out from here to-night as the sense ol this meeting. You will remember that Major BeaE, a gentleman for whom we all entertain the highest respect, was taken Irom the position or chief clerk In the Freedmen's Bureau and appointed tutor in tbe Law Department, and has Men a decided success. We should remember our esteemed President of the United States was an humble tanner and our late chlerjustlea a school teacher. Mr. Straker did not seek the position. He twice declined to accept the nomination, aid was only Induced to do so by tbe repeated solicitation ol bis friends. He Is, In my opinion, still tbe president of the Alumni Association of the Law Department of Howard University. His ruling not to entertain tho motion to reconsider the vote by which the constitution was adopted was. In mv opinion, bad ; but tbe motion which prevailed to rescind that vote was Infinitely worse, and disgraceful in Its developments of chicanery and political trickery, which was sufficient to Induce Mr. S., as president, to see how far the envy, jealousy, and foolish prejudice some of us have against him as a torefgner would go; hence he allowed yoa all to rush down the preclplcs of your own inclinations. CENTRAL DI8PEN5AEY. How the Poor Get Medicines. A visit to the Central Dispensary, corner of Tenth and E streets northwest, found a motley crowd ol men, women and children, black and white, and with all sorts of alls, waiting their turns to be treated. One old man, who looked as If food and clothing would do him more good than medicine, was suffering from rheumatism. He was examined by the doctor, given his prescription, told to keep oat of tbe wet, and to come again on Tuesday. An old colored man bad "misery In his head" and was nearly blind. On examination the pupil of one eye was found to have been torn by a blow upon the eye, and In the other a cataract was beginning to form. He was also told to come again. A delicate girl of sixteen or eighteen was the next patient. In a hair-whisper she told her Ills. The Doctor gave her her prescription end his directions In the same undertones, without ex-f losing her secrets. If secrets she had, or delicacy, r that caused her to speak In undertones. A little colored girl wanted her mammy's prescription " 'newd." and a little boy wanted tome medicine lcr his little sister, who had whooping cough. So the list went through, each In torn being examined and prescribed ror by the physicians In atteadance. After all had been served, the visitor. In a hall boar with the doctors, gathered these facts concerning this charitable iastltu-tien. The dispensary was established about four Tears ago, originally under the auspices of the medical raculty of Georgetown College. It has been kept open since by the untiring exertions efa few pbytlclsnt, mostly young men. It Is supported entirely by charity. It is located In the building owned and occupied by the Georgetown Medical College, the use of the rooms being rent free. It Is open every day In the week, except Sunday, from 1 to 3 p. m., ana Is attended by two physicians each day. The attending stsfl Is composed or six doctors, each attending two days In the week, as follows: Dr. O. II. A. Klelnschmidt, en Monday and Friday; Dr. J. Wallers, Monday and Thursday; Dr. It H. Barker. Tuesday and Thursday; Dr. Wm. H. Ross, Tuesday and Friday; Drs.W. C. Briscoe and C. V. Boarman, on Wednesday and Saturday. The average number of patlcntstreateddallynow lsfromfitteen to twenty. In two years lastpast npwaids of four thousand prescriptions have been dispensed. The entire control of the dispensary Is in the hands of this stair, who not only give the medical attendance but solicit tbe contributions by which the establishment Is kept up. A considerable portion orthe medicines are contributed by various druggists in the District; the balance are purchased with money given. This establishment Is doing a praiseworthy work, and deserves tbe aid and support or all benevolent and charitable persons. Other establishments are doing the ssme kind ol benevolent work, and doubtless deserve like contributions and encouragement, PIEHIISJO BTJILD. Improvements in the District.

Poolestille, Md., March 17, 1S7J. To tit EdUor of the Xatlonal Republican: Sib: An article published in The Rxfcblicax of the 3d Instant, under the head of 'Episode at a Montgomery County Wedding," having, on account ot a misstatement it contained, caused some excitement among the gentler sex of thlt corner of Montgomery, I deem It my duty to the ladles of this county to correct it, The lucky reporter who gave yon the incidents in tbe episode" having nodoubt been on the spot and "Interviewed" the little stranger" and its mother, his statements were possibly mostly correct; bat when he Infers that ''Old Montgomery" holds Indisputable right and title to the late addition to our population he is quite mistaken, for the new-comer crossd over the river from Virginia s day cr two previous to the "episode," and is therefore a stranger to us In more senses than one. We wonld probably hive had nothing to talk about until the time of the next fair had It not been for the kindness of our friends on the other side of the river, and, if our "frequent visits to Washington" do not prove tbe means of tarnishing us s more decent tople ol conversation than tbe one your reporter spread abroad, wby we can easily dispense with the boasted training our young men receive In Washington. Our ladles are quite Indignant over the offensive article. They have made all manner of threats against its author, and If The Rethbli-cas should some bright morning receive a call from tome or our "prettiest," and It should result In a slight shedding or the editorial wool this warm spring wsatter, don't blame JklOKTOOXEBX. ETEHHAL VIQILAHCE. Another Important Arrest by the Capitol Polics. Wasiiinotok, D. C, March Jl, 1S7S. To the Editor of the -Vol tonal Sepntltcan: Sir: I hope you will permit me through the columns ot your paper to state the facts and circumstances of the arrest and Incarceration of Stephen Walley, a poor, Inoffensive colored boy. Yesterday morning after he had gotten through with his work In the Home post office, where he is employed, he Iett to go to the folding-room, and while passing through one or the corridors he carelessly began to rattle two small tags which he held In his hand. One of the policemen, with an officious air, ordered him to discontinue rattling the sticks, accompanying this ungenerous command with s threat that ir he did not obey him he wonld lock him up. The boy smiled and rattled again. Tbls officer thereupon arrested him and locked him up in a cell that Is positively unit lor a hog-pen. An older and less officious officer, oat of pare tender-heartedness and charity, let him out, not thinking for a moment that he was doing any barm, certainly not meaning to do any. When the captain or the force heard of the matter he became greatly Incensed, and quite Indignant that a subordinate should assume such authority. He ordered the rearrest of the prisoner, which waa promptly done. This last proceeding Is, in my judgment. Illegal, and 1 think the captain will learn this fact to-morrow morning, when this case Is called In the Police Court. The boy was toldir be would disclose the name or his liberator he would be permitted to go about his business. This be peremptorily refused to do, which was very creditable to a boy as Ignorant as he Is. He waa left In the cell up to 5 or 8 o'clock without anything to eat whatever, and then crsellyeent by this merciless and heartless captain (who, by the way, is a member ol the Metropolitan church, one or the deacons I hear) to the city station-house and kept there until 3 o'clock this afternoon, when he was balled out by the employees of the House post office. Need 1 say more to convince any Intelligent and reasonable man or the utter unfitness of this captain for tbe position he occupies. Who can defend hlmT what extenuation can be made for such a mint 1 submit this case to tbe judgment or the community without further comment. One word more. I desire to say that I have not exaggerated this case In tbe slightest degree. The facts herewith disclosed can all be verified If neees-y. m Smo.v. KHIOHTS TEMPLAR, Interetting Hatonie Presentation. At the last regular conclave of Columbia Com-mandery, No. 2, K. T., held at Masonic Temple Friday, the 13th Instant, Past Eminent Commander Sir John R. Thompson was presented with an elegant sword and belt. Rev. Sir J. Vaughn Lewis made the presentation speech, and referred in highly complimentary terms to the manner In which Sir Knight Thompson had during his two years of service, performed the do ties of Eminent Commander, honorable to him. seir and acceptable to his fraters. The recipient orthe gilt made a brier and happy response. The sword, which was made to order by the Ames Manufacturing Company, or Chlcopce, Massachusetts, ts on exquisite specimen of taste and skill In workmanship. The hilt Is surmounted by ahelmeted knight's head, with white feather In stiver, below wnlch tbe hilt is stadded with a circle often emeralds. The guard Is composed of cross-bones In silver, upon which rests a triangular table of black enamel. Twelve rubles are set around the outer edge of this table, upon which rests a human skull In silver. The blade Is beau-tllully ornamented with etchings, representing mediaeval castles, mounted knigbts in conflict, banners, arms and emblems of the Order. Upon one side the steel has been cat away, leaving the nsme or the recipient and the name and number or the Commandery standing In relier. The engraved portions or the blade are Inlaid with gold and silver, giving a beautiful pictorial effect to the etchings. The scabbard, which Is heavily plated with gold. Is prolasely ornamented with tbe various cresses and emblems or the Order In gold, silver and enamel. One side or the hilt, which is or the finest Ivory, bears tbe monogram. J. R.T.,andthetherthelnscrIption: "Presented to Eminent Sir John R. Thompson by Columbia Commandery, No. 2, K. T., March 19, 1875." The belt and Its mountings is In perfect keeping with the sword, and was furnished by Messrs. Wlllett & Raotf, or this city. GOOD EATING. Fxpn:ive legislative Stomachs. The Circuit Court room will doubtless prove an attractive spot to-day for speculators and those persons fond of spicy developments, as tbe suit brought by Messrs. Godfrey t Goell, of the Chesapeake saloon, against Hon. Peter Campbell, ex-Speaker or the House of Delegates or tne Third Legislative Assembly, will be called. The defendant Is sued ror refreshments tarnished by bis order to tbe members or the House or Delegates' daring the session he was its presiding officer, amounting to nearly The evidence and orders promised to be forthcoming to-day will show to what extent the delegates fasted and hew ihey gormandized. The bill of fare will embrace fried oysters, tnrtle, cigars, Vertenay, brandy, &c It was to have been liquidated out of the contingent land, which was swelled by the delegates to f 8,000, but, like some other claims, It remains nasettled; hence the salt. Bobbing a Cemetery. In the Police Court on Saturday Elijah Pierce and Louisa Fierce, his wire, were charged with larceny of crockery and glassware from Oak Hill Cemetery. It waa shown In the evidence that the parties had been suspected for a long time, but only a few days ago. when the assistant superintendent 'and gate-keper were set to watch them, where they detected In the actof carrying away articles. The court ruled that by a strict construction of the law only the husband was held for the crime. Pierce was sentenced to tlx months In Jail, and his wire dismissed. AMUSEMENTS. Jeise Shepsrd WUlard HaU. The friends of this wonderfully-gifted young artist are anticipating tbe concert or tnts evening as a brilliant event- While our citizens hasten to do honor and give aid to all foreign artists, paying their exorbitant demands upon the representations of Impressarll and the New York papers, ought we not to ball the dawn of such of star of genius among our countrymen and encourage the advance of such truly wonderlul and uneqaaled gilts as those or whlcbyoung Shepard Is possessed, and which tbe critics cf the old world have already honored? Many a dowager duchess or London and Countess of the Rue St. Germain have welcomed him to their concerts, as their one great ornament, and all who have heard his performances here upon the pianoforte, eliciting from Its keys more power of expression and varietv of sound In hit execution ol nls own wild and weird, grand and beautifully harmonious creations, than any other master of the Instrument has done, exclaim, without exception, their convictions of his independent genius. Almost overpowering to sensitive and keen-eared musicians Is the tremendous combination or effects as bis long fingers seem to selie the Instrument's resources and force out all the glories of orchestral powers, the very soul and meaning of the royal piano-forte. His music Is like that "The world will have When tbe years have passed away." No one who can appreciate the grand and beautiful In music shculd stay away Irom Wlllara hall to-night. Through tbe agency and kindness of Mrs. lielchenbach, tbe sole agent In this District fcrKnabe't pianos, Mr. Shepard will have the use of one of the largest and finest manufactured by Knabe h. Co., and specially sent from Baltimore. Miss Goodall's participation In the concert brings to It a decided attraction. The remarkable flexibility of her fine voice, and rare comprehension of music In Its finest phases, mark her as an artist or extraordinary promise. The high appreciation In which she Is held tn this city has a world or significance. That she Is a vocalist or great natural gifts and real genius Is acknowledged by all who have heard her. The programme as presented shows most judicious selections, and contains some of Miss Goodall's finest efforts. The beautiful "Theme de Rode," which will be rendered In charming style. Is one that gave much lame to Madame Sontag, and, as rendered by Miss Goodall, cannot fail to have a fine effect. Miss Marlon Goodall, one of our best accompanists, will accompany her sister, thus Insuring a smoothness of harmony that will prove very acceptable. Mr. Young's selections are most excellent, aad his eflorts will add much to tbe pleasure or the concert. Tickets ror sale at Metierott's and at Brad Adams'. The concert will commence at eight. Ford's Opera Home The Majlltont. Tbete artists will appear this evening Id a new fairy spectacle entitled "Ding-dong," or the Pretty Laundresses or Lntzen.

The girls become alarmed for their father's safety, not hearing the bells, and resolve on knowing the cause. The girls are overtaken by a storm and lose their way, together with tieir lovers. The old man, after having drank freely, reaches the belfry, falls Into a trance, and spirits visit him In bit dream. He thinks he Is tn a forest with his daughters, and are surrounded by trees which da'jee weird evolutions betore him. When he awakes, ha gies home and tells bis wonderful dream, and Joint the New Year's revels with his (family. The Majlltons have a company of their own, which is a good one. The farce or the "Laughing Hyena" will be presented previous to the spectacle. Ihe Rational Theatre The Witches of Hew York Mr. Albert W. Aiken will make his appearance In the leading role of thlt play. The "Witches ot New York" Is spoken or with no slight degree of praise, and with such an aetcr as Mr. Aiken It will no doubt meet with the same success here as In other cities where the play has been produced. This dramatic production has a charm for many wbo are seeking something novel In the way or etntatlon and device. Popular prices of admission will be maintained. It Is peculiar In style, and has a plot which it in every way calculated to attract. The Theatre Comicne.

Sir : My communication In reply to "Lex Scrlpta"has called forth a reply from him, and also from "W.," both of whom controvert the position held by mo and reaffirm that of "L. S." About one tbtrd of the inhabitants of the German Empire are nominally Catholics, while the remaining two thirds are nominally Lutheran and German Reformed; the bishops, priests and ministers or all are paid their salaries by the Government, the Archbishop ol Cologne receiving a salary of $10,000 per year. There Is therefore a union or Church and State, tbe State giving aid to all alike. Everything proceeded harmoniously until the dogma of papal Infallibility was adopted by the Catholic Church. The German bishops, as Is well known, opposed this dogma in the council, but having been adopted It has become a part of the doctrine or the Cbnrcb, and It Is readily seen tbat he, as the bead or the Church, commands supreme loyalty, and If he cannot err, then he possesses a quality which no klngor other human being Is the possessor of. The question naturally arises, to whom do the German people owe their allegiance, to the head or their Government or to the Pope; This is the question now agitating Germany, and the Government refuses to acknowledge the appointment and thereiore to pay the salaries of tbose who refuse to acknowledge tbelr supreme allegiance to It. The property of the Catholic Church Is held by the bishops personally, and through them by the Pope, and the Government having proposed that the people should participate In Its control (an example which our own Government would do well to profit by) the Archbishop of Cologne protests against It. which has caused the Landtag by an overwhelmtng majority to withdraw tbe State grant to bishops. This Is only what might have been expected, for It could not be that the Government would continue the salaries of those who resisted the laws, and aro "fomenters of Insurrection." L. S. Is not fortunate In his selection of author Ity on which to base the claims ol the Church to Interfere with the laws of nations which relate to their well-being, for if "tbe direct purpose or its essential laws Is not the attainment of temporal advantages and objects which differ according to time and place, but the fulfillment of a spiritual end beyond this lire," then we submit that the interference of religious bodies with national laws, and the management of nationals beyond their sphere, and the history of the world proves tbat It bar always been attended with strife and the bloodiest atrocities. A notable Instance or thlt was the massacre ot St. Bartholomew, when over one hundred thousand Frenchmen were brutally murdered, m honor or which Gregory XIII caused "the cannon or the Castle of Ss. Angelo to be fired, commanded public rejoicings to celebrate the triumph or the holy cause, and then published a jubilee through Europe, to order." he satd, "that the Catholics might rejoice with their head at that magnificent holocaust offered to the papacy by tbe King of France." The declaration of the Saviour that "his kingdom was not or this world," seems not to be heeded by "the Church," bat all its Interferences point as If It believed just the reverse. It may well be maintained that civil government cannot be justly administered when allied to "the Cnurch," and that government Is ben where there la no State religion, and where religions bodies, as such, exercise no influence.

Y.: Knowing that yoa are subject to a great amount ot suffering, that delicacy upon your part has a strong tendency to prolong, and the longer it Is neglected the more yoa have to endure and the more difficult of cure your case becomes, L as a physician, who Is daily consulted by scores or your sex, desire to say to yoa that I am constantly meeting with those who have been treated ror tbelr aliments lor months without being benefited In the least, until they have become per-fectly discouraged, and have almost made up tbelr minds never to take another dose of medicine, nor be torture-i by any further treatment. They had rather die and nave their sufferings ended than to live and suffer as they have. They say they are worn out by suffering, and are only made worse by treatment. Of anything more discouraging we certainly cannot conceive, and were there no more successful mode or treating sucb difficulties than that, the principles or which teach tbe reducing and depleting ot the vital forces of tbe system, when the Indications dictate a treatment directly the reverse or the one adopted ror them, their cases wonld be deplorable Indeed. Bat, lady sufferers, there Is abetter and far more successful plan of treatment for you; one more In harmony with the laws and requtre-ments of your system. A harsh. Irritating, caustic treatment and strong medicines will never cure you. If you would use rational means, such as common sense should dictate to every Intelligent lady, take such medicines as embody tbe very best invigorating tonics and nervines, compounded with special rererenee to your delicate system.

Since extravagance in stockings has come back to ns again, and silk hosiery la almost a criterion or the woman of fashion, of course something most be worn to preserve these silken luxuries from wear and soil, when walking in a dusty and dingy city. Woolen that It knitted may be warm, but it is not a hindrance to the entrance of dost. It rather holds than rejects the lolling, while line broadcloth or velvet, that is both linen and rubber lined, It a certain protection against water and mud. Leggings of these materials are made to reach np and carve over the knee, and are fitted above the boot like a gentleman's gaiter with a strap under the foot. They button upon the outside of the leg, and are carefully fitted to the wearer by front and back seamt. They are sometimes bound on the lower edge with a dark rnr, which gives tbe toot a chubby and youthful appearance. For spring wear they are quite as requisite as for the winter. With a short quilted silk er tatin petticoat, and an Ulster coat or rough cloth, they look very coquettish on a eold or stormy day. Any lady can make them for herself. They should be fitted like any garment, and after being bound with braid, the jet buttons and button-holes may be added. They should be adjusted so perfectly that a bntton-book wonld be required to fasten them over tbe boot and about the ankle. rA Metropolitan. G OLD EX HI LI.! .. A ri-ai-Vi---vao jjLHii-x jituuit.
