[Froim O1r' Regular Corresponde nt.] OUR WASHINGTON LErER. WASHINGTON; D. C., July 12th, 1884. Congress did not forget that there are pleasures which combine with business, and which may be had at the Government's expense. In this it carried out a Congres sional tradition, the tenets of which have been always strictly observed. The House was unusu ally economic in this respect. It only authorized one committee to sit during the recess The Senate was more than usually generous to junketing. It gave facilities to more than eight committees to have a glood time without any outlay of personal cash. The Senate in fact beat the Con gressional record. There may he something of a practical outcome from these pleasure parties, but it is very doubtful. The ('contrary is the almost universal history of such little schemes. But they (10 one thing at least. They give em ployment to a number of men who, in the capacity of alleged work as cleriks, will ot he a burden upon communities in their idll...

Winding up the Clock. The weights of life are rimnuinlg down, As through the world we go: And, marklye, how the penduhui Swings s ower to and fro. Thie well-worn wheels uncertain turn, The hands together knock, And thus I moralize to-night, While windling up the clock. The days of youth and manhood see Time's limning pencil trace Life's years of joy, or weariness Upon its fading face. As erst these numerals were drawn, That staire at me and mock, Like spectres of the night whilst I Am winding up the clock. Oh. loving hearts! for [is to-day, The works are wearing fast, The hands and pendulum shall stop, The weights shall fall at last. Run down! to be wound up, where time No more ouir lives shall mock With doubts like those that. in me rose, While winding up the clock! Why Some Teachers Fall. They are lazy. They neglect details.

STATE AID TO COUNTIES. flow Shall the Comity Railroad Debts be Paid? SPAIrrANBURG, July 24. IElitor News and Courier: In the News and Courier ot Ju lY 22 the question is asked, "Shall t he State help to pay the railroad debts of the couinties?" In com menting editorially upon this query, but two objections ars sug gested: First, that it is unconsti tutional; and second, that as the counties who incurred the indebt. (Idness are principally benefitted, t hey sihould bear the entire burden. To be ufflicted with a, burden some debt is almost as bad as at pestilential plague or any visita. tion which inflicts loss of proper ty. Now if there be any prohibi I ion in the Constitution which de nies to the General Assembly the right to appropriate money to the relief of the people for any cause whatever I fail to find it. The on ly inhibition is that there be no increase of the public debt with mut popular vote, &c. There is here no question of taxation, but the sole issue is, when the ra...
