MARCH 15, ONE YEAU OF CLEVELAND. The second Cleveland admlnlstra. tlon has now rounded ita first year. No year in our history, not even with tho convulsions of war, has witnessed such sweeping and farreachlng changes. The twol»e months since Mr. Cleveland was inaugurated have revolutionized his place in American estimation, says the Philadelphia Press. They have boon sufficient to destroy the Cleveland myth, to blight the whole condition ol tbo country, and to throw their shadow and influ once upon the course of the future loi years to come. They have sufficed to dispel tho Illusions of Cleveland as a reformer, to prick the bubble of Cleveland as a mascot and to overthrow the fetich of Cleveland aa a stuffed prophet and wooden idol. Mr. Cleveland began the year with a mysterious and inexplicable halo as a kind of exceptional and incompre- heneible Superior Being. Ho ends it unmasked, unfrocked, dethroned and shrivelled into his true proportions. He has been president before as a more passive agont under laws he could not change and with a senate he could not control. Under such circumstances his ponderous plati. tudes Imposed upon well moaning people and his pretentious professions had no real test. He had the good fortune to be tossed upon the crest of currents ho did not create and to profit by conditions with which he had nothing to do. He was the accident of the hour, but an accident which spread a wide delusion. So strong was this peculiar spell that, even when his dangerous party fully triumphed with him, there were thousands who trusted implicitly in him as master equally of parties »nd events. One year has stripped him of all thlB fictitious character and all this imaginary power. It began In unprecedented prosperity and it ends In unparalleled calamity. In its actual 108808, In its general suffering, in Us broad and lasting economic disturb, ance, in its threatened change of tho social conditions and standards of large clatsesjthe country has seen no such disaster in half a century, Be« sides, unlike any preceding catastrophe of the sort, it is duo directly and Inescapably to the incoming of tho administration under which It occurs. We were on tho flood tide of a prosperity which might have fjone on indefinitely without eerlous interruption until we should reach one of those periodic checks, which are checks only and not revolution, But suddenly, with absolutely no cause except the political change and its menace of a new economic policy, we are plunged into a financial panic, an Industrial paralysis and a general distress which thle generation has never before exparlenced. Mr. Cleveland not only has not stayed this tide of disaster, but ho has precipitated and aggravated it. The monetary convulsions of the past summer sprang in large part from his stolid incapacity and from the blundering mismanagement of hU aeore- rary of the treasury. The year of real responsibility has brought out and emphasized his failures on every aide. _ THK action of the British. Parliament In voting in favor of abolishing the House of Lords has created a great sensation. The vote shows that even in conservative England there ig a growing tendency toward epubllcan- ism.

[Spcclul Wiixlilii "You can luivo lint u very fuint idea of tho porploxit-ios 1.1 f our work here," nays one of tlio assistant, messunpcrs at tlu: niJiin door of the housu of representative::. "U is our duty to reran in hero from twelve o'clock noon until the ho"BO adjourns evory duy. Wo arc expected to wait upon the people who cull here, treating nil with dignity and courtesy. Our salaries ranpe from seventy-five to one hundred dollars each per month, and we certainly earn them during each session of congress. Of course during tho lonp vacations, which extend ordinarily from March to September, wo are on the pay-roll and receive our compensation every mouth, although wo have nothing to do. Therefore, in tho long- run, we are very well paid for our services; but when congress ia in session we earn every dollar that wo cet, as you may observe if you look about you from day to day." "I have always thought that you had ft very easy time of it. 11 "Well, there aro four of us on duty at this main door, and every minute of our time is occupied. We are on our feet constantly. Nobody is allowed to go upon the floor of the house, and wo are obliged to stop people who endeavor to walk past us and explain to them thp. way to tho galleries or to other parts of the building. We are -animated directories of the capitol. People come here from all parts of the United States to we their representatives upon every conceivable manner of business. It is our duty to take cards to tho representatives whom they desire to see and inform them that their constituents are in the corridor or *aitinp-room and want to see them. You may think that that is a very easy matter, but it is not. If every member of congress were to remain in his seat from the time the speaker's gavel is taken in hand and the house is called to order our duty would be very easy indeed. Rut as a matter of fact the representatives seldom remain ia their seats more than five minute* at a time. They are on tho move constantly, going from one place to another to see their colleagues from the different states in order to interest them in various matters of legislation; or.else they are in their committee rooms attending to business of those committees; or they may be down- stairs.in the restaurant at lunch; or, as is too often tho eas.>, they leace the capitol building and go to their board- Ing houses, their private offices or the executive department, looking sifter the business of their constituents. "The representatives leave no word with the doorkeeper when they are going to leave the capitol, when they are goin.«r t( > lunch, or when they are going to the executive department. The messengers are expected to know everything 1 concerning the representatives, and a great many people who come here expect us to produce their members of congress immediately. It not infrequently happens that visitors lo these doors are very impatient with the messengers; and nearly every duy I have my word disputed when I state that some member of congress, whom a visitor desires to see, is not to bo found in the house of representatives." "What reason do people assign for doubting your word?" "Well, you might be sitting in the gallery of the house and see a representative with whom you desire to converse sitting in his scat; and leaving your place in the gallery, you might descend the stairs as rapidly as possible and eome to one of these doors expecting a messenger to bring your representative to you immediately. It takes fully two minutes to go from any part of the gallery to one of 8UABDINO THE DOOI1. these doors, and in that space of _ time the representative whom you desire to see may have left his seat, gone to one of tho cloak rooms, g-one into one of the committee rooms, or be standing out in the speaker's lobby, or he may have gone downstairs to the restaurant for his lunch. It very frequently happens that people leaving the gallery to call upon some member whom they have seen upon the floor of the house, start upon the mission the very moment when, the member whom they desire to -see leaves his seat to go somewhere else." "In such a case it is almost Impossible for the visitor to believe that his member of" congress has disappeared. It is not the duty of the messengers at ilia doors to hunt all overthe house for »ny representative who may be desired by a visitor; Jf a member ig not in his seat wo hove done our full duty when we report that fact. . nut as a matter of courtcsy.'it. is very custonjary for us to loolc Ihruiigji i.lu- c'.oni: rooms anu upon the opposite shit;- of tho house in urdur to find the member who".3 the visitor wants. \Ve do this almost in every case. Ihil yon know that when a, person is <li^i|ipniw«d he is disappointed, and disappointment always begets impatience, ;n:<| we poor fellows at the door lire the victims of the utterances of impatience and disbelief." "I presume the newspaper men give you a great deal o[ trouble, do they not'.'" "On the contrary, they give us less trouble than any other class of pcoplo who call hero. They understand tho situation, either intuitively or by experience. There is u general order for all the messengers at the doors to extend special courtesies to newspaper men. They do not eome here Reeking favors of members of congress, but they are here scrvinglhc entire people. It is necessary for them to see the representatives of the states in. which their newspapers are located. I never had any trouble with any newspaper man, except in one instance. "There is one young mun, who is a source of a great deal of annoyance to every messenger. He does not seem to have any appreciation of the duties which devolve upon us nor any consideration for our feelings, lie has been "YOU MEAN, OLD THING." informed again and again of the rules which govern us and he has been requested to comply with the rules as other newspaper men do; but he seems to be utterly oblivious to the reason' able requirements of the situation. For example, he has been told again and affftin that one of the rules that is particularly binding upon na is that under no circumstances must we allow anybody to enter the vestibule or approach tho green baize doors which directly enter tho house. But whenever tliis man can slip past us he does so, and goes through the preen baize doors, pushing them aside and calling for representatives who are within sound of his voice. He i.s a great big fellow, physically, and has a voice corresponding with his athletic development. Whenever he calls for a member In that manner he'disturbs people around him. The speaker and assistant doorkeeper sit directly opposite the main door and they see him. We poor guardians of the door aro blamed for his indiscretion and disobedience to the rules of the house. Upon one occasion I was obliged to take him by the arm and by sheer force pull him from that place and compel him to stand outside where other people are required to stand. Immediately ho went to the doorkeeper of tho house and complained that I had treated him in an ungentlemanly manner, thereby intending to cause me the loss of my position. "However, when J explained the situation to the doorkeeper he patted me on the shoulder and told mo. I had done exactly right, that I need not fear complaints from newspaper men, representatives or any other people, so long as I did my duty. That man continues to come to this door daily, as he Is obliged to do, as the representative of his paper, and 1 endeavor to serve him with an much courtesy and respect as I extend to all others .who come here; but I assure you it i.s galling to my pride to do so. I do not think I can entortair. a friendly or forgiving spirit towards the roan who undertook to deprive mo of my bread and butter when I was simply doing my duty. "The ladies who call here cause us » great deal of trouble. It is almost impossible tO£ct them to understand the situation and many a time I have been called a mean old thing, and a careless, rude fellow, because I was unable to find a representative in his scat or in the cloak rooms when an impatient lady desired to see him. Of course, when men become impatient with us we can explain the situation to them, or if they are rude to us tfo can talk back a little, but when a lady comes to us in that spirit we can only grit our teeth and hold our tongues."

No city or town in New England is , more unique or more interesting than the old fishing port of Gloucester on Cnpe Ann. This quaint city is the ' place which supplies nearly all America with salt cod, and to see the miles of enormous hogsheads along its wharves, filled with salted layers of this cosmopolitan fish, is enough to make one thirsty for a weelc. Gloucester ia less than an hour's ride from Boston, by way of Salem, on the Gloucester branch of the Hoston &. Maine railroad, Eastern division; and if one wishes to get a genuine smack of seaport and fishingport life, and sec where the country store codfish is "made up," let him take a day's outing- and visit th s salty metropolis of Cape Ann. liestof all, let part of the distance be traversed afoot Let the tourist pilgrim do us 1 did—leave the cars at .Magnolia and walk the remaining five or six miles along 1 the shore to Gloucester. We went, last of all, to soc the famous wharves. Here we found hundreds of Hulling schooners unloading. The fish, which had been cleaned and sliced during the voyage, were being tossed out of the holds and upon the wharves by men • with pitchforks. A great tub for each vessel, swinging by chains, and connected with a four hundred- pound weight, received the fish as tossed up, and when the weight flew up the amount was registered by a man with a pencil and account book in his hand. Then the pieces of fish were tossed into a dory filled with water, where they were washed by eight or ten men with blacking 1 brushes—forever innocent of blacking 1 , let us hope—and thence transferred to waiting barrows, in which they were wheeled to rows of hogsheads at the back part of the wharf, and packed away with layers of salt At another part of each dock •were long rows of drying frames., where fish that had been imperfectly cured on the voyage might be spread out and exposed to air and sun. When one takes into account the miles of these fishing docks and the thousands of pounds of cod that uro packed at eacl) every day, he wonders how the finny inhabitants of the deep can hold out against such wholesale depletion. Yet the "catch" was never lariror th»n it has been this year, and the old fishermen say that there seems to be nc aiffn of the beds g-iviln; out. A quaint city, yet a. practical and progressive one. is (ilnncester: a city of wealth and of culture, too, with fine churches and schools, and many beautiful residences and public buildings.

At the great slaughter-house in the Parisian suburb of La Villette there is a granary from which the beastsawnit- ing execution arc fed. The way to it is up a substantial ladder staircase. One of the bullocks having escaped from the pens, climbed up this staircase before he could be stopped. When his escape was first discovered, he was seen on the stairs, slowly and laboriously making his way upward. As soon as he reached the granary two or three attendants followed him and endeavored to get him down, but all their efforts were unavailing 1 . There was nothing to be done, therefore, but to leave the beast there to cat his.fill, and then see whether he would be clever enough to return by th* way he I went.
