(Special Washington Lcttor.] Everybody that has hn.il any cxpori- cnco with thu national loffishLtion sa3*s thnt Uncle S:ira is not only stingy but mean in his treatment of his creditors. Government olllcers in tlicir ollicial capacity have, from time to lime, made contracts binding Unclo Sam to pay certain sums in return for certain poods or services, bnt when tin: creditors come, to Washington to collect their money from congress they pcncr- nlly fail in their mission. No\v \vhile it may bo that Uncle Sam is mean and stinpfy in such matters it is only fair to remember thnt there was never anybody so pestered with duns. People who say. tliat he owes them money are always swarminfr about tlie capitol when conifress 'is in session, while thousands of such olaimunls all Over tlie country are continually clamoring by letter for payment, yomo o.f them are cranks and not a few arc frauds, but many are honest creditors, hopeful or despairing of a settlement. Numerous are tlie bad debts recorded npainst tlie government, which has often, been accused of never pH3'iu£ anything when it can help doiuff so. Yes, some of them are cranks, but they have become so because "hope deferred maketh tlie heart sick," not to speak of tlie wear and tear on tho brain. Some of them arc frauds, but nearly all claims have some honest foundation. True stories of lives ruined, fortunes wrecked and homes destroyed in the prosecution of just claims against the j^overnmeut would fill a library of volumes. Unpaid victims haunt the legislative lobbies from congress to congress, pursuing the delinquent debtor with nover-dyinf,'' hope, while scores of others are relegated to the poorhouses and the lunn tic asylums. Some such debts due from tho nation are handed down by tlie creditors from generation to generation— legacies usually productive of only misery and unhappiness. Nothing is more dillicult than to get the most just claim against Uncle .Sam through congress. However favorably recommended by a committee, the chances are enormously against its ever reaching consideration by the house. Supposing that it passes tlie house, a miracle must interpose to secure its approval by tho senate and the president's signature. If only this last be lacking the claimant must begin at tlie beginning agaiu in the next congress, as if he had never taken a step before. The labor of Sisyphus, whose stone always rolled down to the foot of the hill before he could get it quite at the top, was nothing to this. It is not true, as is generally believed, that claim agents or lobbyists are disreputable persons; but it is true that a great many sharks and vultures pretending to be: claim agents cruise trouble and delay in many cases by their questionable practices. They send circulars broadcast to the uninformed, suggesting that the latter are entitled to moneys from the treasury. ]jy way of fee for looking into the mutter they demand fri or !>> in advance, ivith the assurance that nothing further will be demanded unless the claim is allowed. Having got the fee, their interest ceases in the claim, which is in due course disallowed. Meanwhile they sOnd out more circulars soliciting victims. Couscqueiitlj' more than 00 percent, of all claims aro found devoid of merit. Suits aro to this /lay being brought for slaves killed and stolen by tho Creels Indians during the hostilities with that nation in 1S30 in Alabama, the value of tlie human chattels being estimated fit §1,000 each. There arc numerous claims outstanding against the government for dogs taken by the Indians, their worth being reckoned at from S3 to §r>0. A woman in Nebraska has recently applied for repayment for property destroyed by the Indians, backs. Col. i:le Arnaud hus made repeated demands for fj,~0,fl00, which he considers to be due him for showing <!en. llrarit how to capture tin; town of Paduciih, K.y. Three years ago the famous Private Dake-ll issued what he called a "Christmas present to the soldiers." It was in the sh;:p<: of a, circular announcing that £1-10,000.000 was in the treasury at Washington waiting to be distributed among the veterans. All that was necessary was that they should write for their share of this sum, whieh had been discovered to be owing for extrii travel pa}-, allowance for rations, etc. On this account more than 10,000 letters were received by the second auditor alone, thus giving rise to an immense amount of trouble. Mr. Dalxell h:io now reduced his estimate of the claim to SI.000,QUO, One of the most remarkable claims ever brought against the government is embodied in a bill by the sole survivors of :L massacre on the plains. It is alleged that thirty years ago a family of emigrants was traveling through Idaho on its way to Oregon, when it was set upon by Indians. The father and mother, four sons and three daughters were killed, but the youngest BLIZZARDS AND COLD WAVES.

Not very dissimilar is'tho ease of a lady-^t Davenport, la., who was captured in l&K in sont.h- crn Kansas by Cheyenne d&Jf soldiers and kept by them for two months. At tho end of that time she wiii^boiifflit by an Indian trader for Sl,00o|juid returned to civilization. Now sli'} issuing for §50,000, which was stolen on that occasion from her father, \vlio had brought the money from Unhand in the shape of jrold and notes from tho Hank of lin-jlnnd. Claims for Indian depredations against Unclo Sam aggregate ?S-t,000,000, ranpinff in amount all the way from S10.T5 to 81,281,250. It is strange, but it is n fact, that occasionally persons file claims against tho United States for service in the confederate army. An old gentleman named Taylor, from Chicago, has asked ncveral congresses for 810,000 in payment for his having suggested to President Lincoln the idea of issuing green- member of the expedition, a male infant, was carried into captivity. Having grown to manhood, he demanded frpm Uncle Sam the value-of tin: wagon in which the. emigrant party was traveling when attacked by the savages, the vehicle having been subsequently found by a quartermaster in the arrny, who had applied it to his own uses. So the amount (S1SO) was paid by the treasury and charged against tlie quartermaster. The veterans of the union armies have every conceivable kind of claims against the government. Some of them want remuneration fc.T the money spent in traveling from their homes to the mustering oCiee where they enlisted. They want nl»i to be remunerated for moneys taken from them for alleged "luxuries' 1 for which they were "overcharged by the sut- ler," Occasionally old soldiers who were never formally mustered outcome to Washington and obtain their discharge at the war department. At the same time they ask for pay from tlie close of the war to the date of such formal release, and arc both surprised and grieved at not getting it. Others write that having been paid for their services in greenbacks they now want the difference between the value of the greenbacks they received and gold, paper money having' since risen to par. One dillic:nlty commonly experienced in paying war claims out of tlie treasury under existing laws concerns the widows. Not a few old soldier* seem to have us many as three or four \vido\vs, while numbers of them had two each. Thus it is very puzzling to find out which one to pay in every case. Home foreigners who enlisted had families abroad and families in this country also. Naturally the widows on this side usually applied first for money due, and, after they were paid, claims would come iii from the real and previous widows across the ocean. The pension claims aro as the sands of the seashore for number, and as the colors of the kaleidoscope or prism for variety. There is an old lady in West Washington named Kearney. Her huuband was a union soldier, During tho rebellion the federal troops encamped about her place and took all her live stock and other movable property, valued at S'-0,000. She has been asking- congress for repayment ever since, but she will never get it, though no dispute is made of her right to the money. Dr. Mary Walker did good service ns a surgeon'in the army during the late war. She was paid for the first twelve months, bnt at the end of that time the war departmant discovered that it had uo right to employ a woman in such capacity. Nevertheless she kept on without pay for thri-.c years longer, and for this she asked the government to grant her &3,()00. Her claim hus been favorably reported in many con- ^fresses, but never reached on the calendar. Two million claims havo been filed with the second auditor of the treasury .since tho war; and every other bureau has a considerable number of claims for consideration. Verily it is true that tho claimant is abroad in the land. Sjrrrii D. Fur. Theories Concerning llio inutlv l>l»turbiino«'N. The true primal cause ol tho great ) atmospheric disturbances, which, hav- j intr their origin in the West Indies, i occasio7i:illy Mveep across the ocean to j the United States, is not positively I known. ! Various causes have been assigned from time to time, but they are mere conjectures—theories only. And while the causes of storms are unknown, so also no one understands the reason for sudden changes of temperature. These phenomena arc beinj;' carefully observed and reported, but their cause is onu of nature's profound secrets. This is the season of blizzards, n.nrt it may, therefore, be of interest to point out some features about the movement of cold waves, which arc now a subject of investigation uy the scientific 1 world. The chanjjes of tho weather, as displayed on tho weather maps which are issued from Washington, often present curious facts. Thus, on a certain day and at a certain place, the temperature, as shown by the thermometer, was fifteen do^nui.s below y.ui'O. In twenty- j four hours it had risen to oi^htdoyrecs | above zero. | During that time there was no | change- in the nearness of the sun to '• the particular locality ail'cuted, and if j we are to believe the old doctrine that | the sun is a fire which warms the earth, why should such sudden changes of temper:!ture have been experienced at any particular place within so short a time'? | The cold waves which rush down i upon us from the north are discovered i as soon as they reach the northwestern limits of the United States, and their f n turn course isoljsi-rved nnd predicted. Hut what they are is unknown to us. Wo only know that these blizzards start somewhere in the far north, and that their progress, when they enter upon our territory, is either southward or eastward. If a blizzard, while it is swooping _ across the western prairies, meets a j strong* south wind, then the two currents form a fierce and whirling storm, which travels eastward. But when the blast from tho north docs not meet a south wind it forces its way down to the Gulf of Mexico. The north and south mountain chains of our hemisphere, with their snow-covered peaks, create a dense bank of atmosphere, whieh prevents storms from ffoing- westward. All land storms which originate on the plains move eastward, while ocean cyclones invariably move westward until they meet an area of liifjli pressure, which turns them to the northeast. It does not matter whether they originate on the Atlantic coast, in the West Indian Archipelago, or in the Gulf of Ouinca: in every case they move , westward to the vicinity of Cuba, or even as far ns tho coast of Mexico. All that we know, therefore, about either land or ocean storms is their movements, but some experiments made recently in the possibilities of producing cold will undoubtedly suggest new theories as to the cause of changes of the weather. Prof. Dewar, a.ri English scientist, succeeded ill producing such extremes of cold that, at 'Hi! degrees Fahrenheit below x.ero, he solidified nitrogen gas into a while crystalline 'wax. At 350 degrees below zero he solidified air into a translucent body, like glass; and at 154 degrees below zero hu reduced oxygen gas to a bluish oil. Those temperatures wcra measured with a hydrogen thermometer, which docs not .show a greater degree of cold than 400 below zero. •' It is currently believed that intense cold prevails above the atmosphere. That the sun cannot heat these regions is evident from tho perpetual snow on lofty mountains. It is possible, therefore, that the blizzards and cold waves, which we suppose aro brought from the poles, really fall down upon the earth from the upper regions of space, where extreme cold solidifies the gases of tho air. Some day science will unravel what is now a mystery.—Uolden HOW SHE HAS EDI How frequently, my once fair sister, tlie above remark has been dropped about you, whose complexion was once the pride of your admiring friends and the envy of your rivals.
