WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. [CULLED FROM VARIOUS SOUBCBS.] The House will not accept the Senate substitute for the pending constitutional amendment. Governor Boutwell lias charge of the matter, and at his instance the House will decline and leave the Senate to recede or ask for a Committee of Conference. That body will probably pursue the latter course. The second article is particularly obnoxious to many leading members of the House, and can never go through in its present shape.

We are of the opinion that not one of these railroad bills can pass this session. There can be no doubt of Congress passing these bills next session. In a recent conversation between Gen. Grant and a prominent politician, the ...

jftlttttA. A SPARKING SPEIX TOO UOXii DllAWX OUT. A rich joke regarding a brace of ardent lovers of this city has just been whispered to us. Under promise we have agreed to conceal the names, but are ut liberty to reveal the facts of the case. Last July, at the close of one of those hot days, these two lovyers might have been seen seated upon the roof of one ol our beautiful cottages, which is tint, and covered with gravel and pitch, after the manner of our city bridge. Ves, there they sat. "Through the few hours, the happy moments few, So warm with 1-cart, so rich with love they (lew, And rested there as in a dream at home." The sun during the day was vert- warm, and thus they met to spend the fleeting hours of twilight, enjoying the pleasant breeze that floated up from the garden beneath. As the evening grew cooler, they "hitched" up nearer together, and gently " sqoze" each other, and all passed oil' quietly ami lovingly vmtil the bell tolled at midnight. " None but tho lov...
