AIM?. 31, '82.-People away from Washington we apt to think this a very dull season with us, but the National Capital is never dull, and if we who really live j hore did not have a breathing spell after the wisdom tnat dropped around us bv the solons of our nation, and the flibustering and parliamentary tactics endured for over eight months there is no knowing what the conse quences might be. Secretaries Lincoln and Teller have made it lively here hy their action excluding women from obtaining appointments in their departments, in the eight hundred appointments to be made. Consequently the women have donned their war paint and organized a Woman's National Labor League for the purpose of concentrating the working woman's influence throughout the country, and members and senators are threatened with the exposure of the names and characters of some of their special favorites appointed here. The Star Boute trial still drags its winding way, and it is apt to be very confusing to the average brain, when the thermometer is fooling among the nineties, to read one paper and have it conclusively proved that the other side are all liars, thieves, robbers and other cheerlul members of society, and then read another one and become impressed that it was the other side again that deserved the chromo in the above characters. There are still a few members of the house and senate that walk around the deserted halls of the Capitol. You niny break you may ncntter our Congrrns if But a ghoM of it I«T will linger hero Mill.

Mrs. Garfield has presented the Ohio State association with a hundred year lease of the house owned by the late President and in which he lived until taking possession of the White House, to be known as the Garflcld House. The house in question is in one ot the best and most valuable portions of the city -a plain but substantial double house with a pretty yard at tho side. Since his death it lias had a sad look, as if the grief of the country was felt even by the in · animate walls where the happy family so long resided, not allowing the turmoil of public life to break into the sanctity of home. Col. A. F. Rockwell, Commissioner of public grounds who was the warm loving friend of tho late President, is often seen stroll- IUK by the deserted house "in the gloaming" and leaning sadly over the little fence railing. The comedy and tragedy of life is more forcibly illustrated here in Washington than, perhaps, in any other city. The house formerly occupied by Belknap, when Secretary of War where his lovely fascinating wife reigned queen and gave some of the most brilliant receptions ever given, to which the leading people of the country fought for invitations, is now to fall into the ranks of boarding houses, and the dining room, filled with the recollections of superb lunches, aesthetic dinners,--with ghosts of bruve men and beautiful women, will now resound with the cries of the hungry boarder for more substance to his soup. It is the common ffite of most of the houses, celebrated in times past, to end up in the inevitable boarding house. The handsome house of Chief Justice Chase, where Kate Chase Sprague so gracefully presided, ia now the refuge of any one who can pay a monthly room rent, and has even gone through the mortification of haying the gas turned off for nonpayment. To what uses do great houses como at last! Your correspondent is writing this letter in the room formerly occupied hjr Bob Toombs and Alexander Stevens. K nature DM- not glto* imtellmC * them animals, U ha* given them an iav ·tinct yerr muck akin to it A mao hat only to hunt them hi their T|rild§ t^tearn how wonderfully Providence has taught them to choose the moat favoratilt ground, whether for feeding or encamping, and to resort to jungles where theii ponderous bodioa ao resemble rotjks ot the dark foliage, that it is very diffireull for the sportsman to distinguish them from surrounding objects; while theii feot are so constructed that not only can they tramp ov«r any kind of ground, whether hard or soft, thorny or smooth, but without emitting a souhd. Sorao oi their encamping grounds are models ol ingonnify--some of them perfect fortresses. I once followed up a herd and r found them in a small forest Surrounded on three sides by a tortnons river, im- passabln for ordinary mortals by reason either of the depth of water, its precipitous banks, quicksands or entangling tvucJs in its bed, while the fourth side was protected liy , a tangled thicket, further protected by a qOagmire iufnmt. To get sit Vhem without Aisturhip* theto was Impossible^ at last, when I did got wttliin sh.it of tho forest, the elephants rciniittu'l by the opposite side to that by ivliioh I luvl appVo vclic'l, anil aftur following tliura tor several hours I did not get a shot. Tho damage done to rice crops, Mr. Sanduraon tliinks, is exaggerated. It m \y b,- so"ih Mysore; but in fturmtih, in many places, it is excessive. While employed on survey work in the Tharawittldio district, I havfe been followed about by villagers pointing out tti« d,nnai$e done and asking for a remission of tax, mistaking me fbr a revenno officer. No one supposes elephants have tho reasoning powers possessed by man; if they had, we should be their slaves, and not they ours; buf their instinct is wonderful. I will give a oonple of instances: When war broke out with Burmali, a lot of ole- phiuita were sent aoross fronj Bengal to Prome by hind, under the olmrge of Captain Baugh, of the Bengal Twenty-sixth. Among them was a magnificent tusker. He took a dislike to this officer, why was not «xaetly known. SOTM said it was because he had knocked off the elephant' f neok his mahout; but be the reason what it may, this brute tried to kill Baugh, anrl him only, several times. I have saanhirr. thrashed for this several times by othe- ·lephanta armed with chains, who Wield ed them much as a drummer docs tb lash »t ths halberds; but it was of no us»- his dislike was inveterate, .ho would tak. no food except from a pet female, (n* had two lashed alongside of him,) »n» eventnally died at Shpaydoung.

CFroro our regular correspondent.! lowed up, or females with young, their fury knows no bounds. They dread firs more than anything else; but one elephant belonging to the battery in Assam was an exception, and would assist ia putting out a fire. This same elephant would tlo what I never knew any othsr to do, viz., when a beast's neck was cut through, all but the vertebrae, (it did not matter whether the beast was a buffalo, a deer, tiger, or anything else,) it would, when ordered, put a foot on the neck, twine the trunk around the head, »nd, with a wrench, separate it from the body and hand it up to the mahout. I have neen one or two elephants that would hand a dead bird up; but most of them will not touch anything of the sort. Nor would they intentionally tread upon a fallen man or beast--those used for exo cntions in the Guicor'» territories--fc» roda--have been taught to do so. Som«. foolish men teach their elephants to trample upon a dead body, and by so doing ruin them for sport. An elephant, unless vicious by nature, will only do §o at first with the greatest rcluetanoe, nt after a time, if anything falls before It it is apt to charge, and if it does not kneel down suddenly and throw the occupant out of the howdah, it gets tho animal between its legs, and plays a sort of football with it, throwing it backward and forward between tho front and hind legs rfntil it is of the consistency of a JeDy. Men are occasionally thrown ofl the back of au elephant; what would tiicir fate be mounted on a beast who had been taught such tricks? An elephant I bought of Mr. Tye had once been cut by a rhinoceros. Nothing would induce her to enter a jungle where one of these animals was; the very slio-htest scent of one would send her flying. A splendid female mnckna belonging to my department cared nothing tor a tiger; would kick ono out of her path without showing the slightest signs ·f uneasiness, bnt if she met a Our Declaration of Inde pendenoe!

The points of resemblance between Franklin and DeLong are too striking to escape attention now and m the record* of historians hereafter. Their mission to the polar seas was substantially th« same; both failed to accomplish the wortt (or which they set forth; both exhibit*)! the most heroic qualities of daring, ei · durance and fortitude, and both died tl starvation. There is another point of resemblance which has pathetic interest, as the world remembers the woman whose faith in her husband's return has remained steadfast through long month's erf suspense, but is to-day broken by the intelligence sent by Melville from the Lena delta. Like Franklin, DeLong leaves behind him a noble wife to mourn his fate, and her sorrow challenges the sympathy which the world bestowed so freely upon Lady Franklin. It remains for the American people to see that the memory of DeLong is honored like that of Franklin by his countrymen. The first duty of the Nation is to see that the body of the explorer, with the bodie* -of his comrades, u brought to America for honorable interment. It will then be a duty* to we that a monument such as England erected to Franklin, is reared to the memory of a hero whose name will henceforth be a synonym for bravery and and manly fortitude.-- N.

August 31at 1882.- Match making mammas complain that never in all their recollection and experience has a summer season been so dull and so unsuccessful as the one now approaching its close. Marriageable young men seem to grow scarcer and scarcer. At the summer resorts, and, particularly the .watering places, beauty of face and.fjgure on the part of the fair sex istpassed by almost unoticed, save by the unappreciated ogle of the callow youths just budding into that period of maturity, when the down ,on the upper lip is tbe main personal object of 'the owner. Con vei sational power has long ceased to attract anything but the "old school" towards young ladies ; in fact this is a dangerous ac · complishment to possess nowadays, for a,girl that has tbe power to talk on various subject is apt to be voted either a bore or a bluestocking-- in either case she is an object more ,to be shunned than to be sought after. "Young men are not what they used to be," said a charming lady to me one evennig on the piazza of the Oriental Hotel at Manhattan Beach. She is on the sunny side of forty, still beautiful, appreciative of the world's goods, and very tolerant of the short comings of the sterner sex if they would only have the good na ture to obtrude them. The only thing to mar her perfect enjoyment of thing as they come in the fact that she had three marriageble daughters, whom, despite her and her daughters combined efforts, she has thus far been unable to place. "When I was a girl" said she,' ''young men could talk, They took pleasure and pride in meeting ladies; to be able to converse or even indulge in s mall talk was an accomplishment; to dance was a pleasure, and to sing or play an instrument were things for which every man with an aim to succeed tried to fit himself. Now they are nothing i£ not sporting characters. AtJNewport. they follow| the hounds or play polo and in the intervals talk horse. At Saratoga when they J»re not at the race track they are talk- or thinking about it, and at Long Branch they are either discussing the chances of horses for certain races, or they drive out and rehearse stable gossip. Now.^while I am not opposed to young men being fond of out door sportp, I maintain thay should not entirely forsake the parlor for the stable. It is ;this proclivity which keeps men single. Then too there are tho restaurants and barrooms who confirm their inclinations toward single blessednesss. With the delicacies obtainable at public tables and the fare obtainable in the home circle, no matter how good, is not good enough, and e;:pert corn- pounders of drinks, yclept bartenders, do their share in seeing that the foolish nien do not spend to much money on others save themselves." Talking about compounders of drinks reminds me of the fact that never before has the taste for "mixed drinks been so great as at present and new ideas, and new combinations Hro constantly being brought forward. It is but a short time ago that a mixture of whiskey, vermouth and bitters came into vogue. It went under various names-- Manhattan cocktail, Turf Club cocktail, and Jockey Club cocktail. Bartenders at first were sorely puzzled what was wanted, when it was demanded. But now they are fully cognizant of its various aliases and no difficulty is encountered. At one of the hotels', famous for its bar. a new drink has just been invented. It consists of brandy, a touch of bitters, a dash of Maraschino a suspicion of lemon and plenty of ice. They call it a foxhound - invented for the fair banjo twanger. It consists of a skirt of mahogany red gingham, or woolen stuff with a tunic ot gaily flowered sateen in. the same shade. The hat has a dashing and wiM appearance with a lot of impossible pleats on one side and its most striking feature is a brigand leJSjWBi JLs the skirt.is rather short, barely touching 9»feet a youag lady- arrayed in this way is perfectly irresistible, and armed with the modern substitute of the lute of former days, the heart of the young man must indeed be obdurate who can resist her. All is activity in the theatrical world. The plaza in Union Square awarms with professionals. Last evening a number of theatres were re-opened for the season. The Bla^k Flag had its first night at the Union Square Theatre. The Blackbird chirped at Harrigan and Hart's and Ranch 10 was shown at Haverly's. The Blackbird although voted a success by the large audience of first nighters is not likely to proye such a card as the Mulligan series for Harrigan and Hart. In fact, the opinion is general that Mr. Hr.rrtgan should have left well enough alone and stuck to strictly American vaudeville through which his house and his company have become famous. The piece is superbly mounted and; Dave Braham has furnished some good music but it lacks the familiar air which patrons of this house have become accustomed to. Selina Do laro still attracts large audiences to the Bijou, and it is wonderful what a favorite she is among men. The ladies now and then are apt to think her costumes and her manner a little too risque, and would prefer if she played more to them than to the sterner sex, but Selina is content to let them cavil. In her acting she combines all the languor of the English woman of the world with the ardor of the Spanish girl of the pee- ple. She has what the meu call speaking arms and when she languidly swings them and sways her body in dreamy delight to the music of the castagnettes in her own little Spanish song the house imvariably grows enthusiastic. Theo's pictures are in the show windows, but they were evidently taken some time ago. People who have seen her recently say that she has grown somewhat maturer in aopearance. In fact they assert that she has grown quite stout. Another soubrette who is likely to create somewhat of a sensation this winter is the popular Viennese favorite, Josephine Gallmeyer, who for a decade has been admiringly termed "our Pepi" by the amusement loving people of the gay city on the Danube. The Thalia Theatre will bring her out and no doubt this house will be as much of an attraction to American theatregoers as it has been dur,« NO. 41. _, ·**·--+*--· Creedmoor continues with wonderoug vigor and the best results are anticipated. None of the scores made thus far have been exactly remarkable, but the records are so evenly good that with steady work on the part of our champions, the British visitors will indeed have a long pull to make in order to beat them. The officers of the National Kifle Association,who have the management of the affair, promise the public superior railroad accommodations and the best of care on the grounds. They must needs improve on previous performances, for at the last international shoot at Creedmor, it was indeed torture to spend a day on the arid plains and a horror to ride home afterwards in overcrowded cars.

The fruit coming by the sailing vessels is the more carefully handled, and there is less loss, though now and then a sudden extra lurch may send a score or two from the deck load bobbing overboard. At the steamer docks there may often be seen a heap of several hundred broken melons, about which hover a crowd of street boys and 'longshoremen, each greedily breaking out chunks of the red, succulent meat within and eating it with great relish and little cer- emonv. The melon really becomes a popular fruit when the Jersey crop cornea in. Thi» sweeps all the Southern prices away and they sell down at wholesale as low as ten dollars per hundred, an*l for twenty-five cents the groeeryman can well afford to furnish a line, fate fruit, one which when picked up and pressed will respond with that peculiar crackle from the interior by which an epicure in melons selects his fruit. Th« three most marketable varieties of the melons are the Spanish, Jer-cy sweets and stripes. It is a common trick with the guileless countrymen who rrow the melons to cross breed them with pumpkins, and while the result is an unusually Inrgu and externally handsome melon the heart is fibrous, after thw manner of a pumpkin. The c;oss · made by dropping a pumpkin seed m every tenth hill, and the pollen carried from the pumpkin llowers to the melon blossoms produces the desired retult.

A new opened in Harlem, exiled tlw Mount Morri 1 ". Thus combirftttions can now play flyo different engagements in this city; on upper Broadwiy, at the Windsor, the Grand Opera House.at Niblo's and in Harlem. The Grand opera house which is now under Mr. Abbey's management has been beautifully fitted up. In fact the alterations and new dacorntions have cost Abbey a great deal of money, and he feels a bit anxious about the result. But if the business is at all well managed Abbey cannot fail to "come out ahead," There is no stage in the city equal to that of the Grand opera house for spectacular performances. The outlook generally for the coming theatrical season is a brilliant one. There seems to be plenty of money among the people, and they appear to be in a mood to spend it. In fact everywhere, in trade and on the stock exchange the feeling is bullish, and those on the bear side of the market are apt to get left. The artists too are coming back to town and next week a number of studios will be reopened. Sketch books have been well filled during summer trips to the home of the beautiful either abroad or in our own country, and the probabilities are that at the winter exhibitions at the National Academy of Design there will be a pleasant departure from the beaten . gro\vers that ritj patron- w.uil s /.e, but riot :,t a sa'Tiiice of quality. \VatHfiueUmsarcnot "tinned that in, they are not put down in hermetically sealed cans lir w i n t e r u-«- Thev They mint le ea eu "fiMin the rind.

An additional illustration of the public spirit and liberality of the Rum- seys is shown in the fact that Eugene A.

The rage for natural floweis as a trimming for ball dresses and for the hair still continues, and small flowers are generally the ones most prefered. The taste for private theatrecals which grew so stong at Long Branch and other seaside resorts during the season is likely to keep alive during the winter, and the amateurs will thus have unlimited opportunities of inflicting their crudities and "nerve'* on their long suffering friends. A curious feature of the undying dp- sire for novelties, by the way, is that banjo playing if being revived again, and from being an instrument of torture in the hands of the negro minstrel and the variety theatre song and-dance man is becoming a welcome acquaintance in polite society. The piano is pronounced vulgar, the flttte horrid, the violin a bore ami the cornet a nuisance. It is only the dulcet twang of the instrument which the lamented Mr. Gaily the Troubadour played so wall, that tracks of goods-goody mediocrity to more interesting paths of originality in design, coloring and execution. Those who for tbe past few years have been asserting that ex Governor Tilden was practically dead, have reckoned without their host, for the old gentleman is in better health at present than ever. At his country house at Greystone he has resumed his equestrian exercise, and to see him sit erect and smart on his favorite brown gelding is indeed a sight. His house in Gramercy Square, which has been so thoroughly overhauled as to make it practically a new one is nearly complete, and a great many people would prefer it to Mr Vanderbill's mansion. The interior fittings are simply gorgeous and the stained glass windows represent a small fortune. Rumor is again rife that these wonderful and costly alterations have not been done for nothing. The gossips insist that a bachelor would not procure surroundings such as these if he were content to remain in solitary loneliness. They even profess to have got on the track of the chosen one, who is said to be the daughter of an ex-Senator, and who although twice a widow can yet take her place in the front rank of fair femininity. She Is said to be just the woman tor him, clear headed, ambitious, and a great worker, But when, Mr. Tilden's lifelong aversion to' matrimony is considered it seems doubtful, to say the least, that he should at this late day, "give up his freedom," aa young men call it.

The above excellent piece of poetry was floating around at Rochester, during the convention. Annual election of fire department officers at Horuellsville, takes place Sept. 6th. Byron D, Hamliu, of Sraethport, Pa. recently gave the Bradford department $25.00. The members of the Oil Exchange. at Bradford, have at this date, rawed over two hundred dollars for the benefit of the State Convention, to be held there in Sept. Sept. 7th the annual parade and inspection of the Hornellsville Jde- partment will take place. Last year they had a splendid parade and were honored by several visiting companies. This year it will be a home af fair. There will be no parade at Bradford this ye.ir, simply an inspection of the department by the Mayor and council, on the 21st, the third day of the convention. In Xevr York, owners ot unsafe buildings, who do not repair them upon being notified, are "out"' that much property, as the Hook and Ladder men are detailed to tear them down.
