Eoud calls wvre made from all parts ot the house for the Hon. Jaa. W. Patterson, Repress ntatn e in < Congress from New Hampsutre. w ho ruee 10 respond amid great rpplanse. RKSI'OHsKOF HOW. J. W. PATTERSON. Mr. Patterson commerced with an eloquent illusion to a character of ancient history who, he said, fonnd Athens built of brick and lett it built of marble. This could not be done by ( ongreas.for Washington, for in thosa dnvs the will of tbe sovereign was supreme, and the power and wealth of the kingdom was concen. trated in its capital, but under the new to: ms of civilization Congress could legislate that tbe wealth of the Republic, its enterprise. iu? progress, its culture, and its educational influences could be centered in its capital. What was wanted was to connect this city with the South?every section of Ibe South, with the North?every section of tbe North, and commerce and wealth would naturally flow into it. We must build up in this metropolis a system of schools. Washington has Vi.uuu aliilareu between 6 and 17 yearscd age. Boaton has io,UK). The expenditures in Washington for public schools annually w aa less than4Hjn,00U. while in Boston S"3?'sU<? was expvnded annually for public shools. Washington has Slrto.wm worth of school property, while Boston has a million aBd a half of such property. Washington has school accommodations for bnt (5,000 children, wbile there were JO.!**) to be supplied. 1 be difficulty was that il per cent are children of employees of Government who do not pay taxes here, and in tbe fact that Government owns of property upou w htcb no taxes are paid. This Goverumeut proper, tv ought to pay ta\e> for tbe education of the children. It is not the people ot Washington Who are main!y interested in this, but the w bole people ot the country. [ Applause.J He continued 10 speak at length with regard to the improvement which should be made by Congress upon the capital, and concluded amid loud and long continued applause. After music by Espnta's band tbe president read the second regular toast, as follows . "The Congress of the Vpueo States: Tbe appointed guardians of the nation's capital, charged with subjects ot leg'-lation vitally affecting the District's Interest ' I pou the announcement of this toast. l,.ad call.- were made lor tbe Hon. John F. F.irnswortb. of Illinois. After tbe applause had subsided, Mr. Farnsworth aros? to reply. gPKKCH OF BO?. J. V. KA KH>V?OKTH. Mr. Karnswortb commenced by alluding to tbe tact that comparatively little attention is paid by Congress to tbe interests of tbe Dia> trictot Columbia. He judged ao front bis own experience. Members of Cougreas come here, engage rooma and board for tbe sesaion, go borne, and know little more about tbe Visirtct and ibe people who live here than they did at the beginning of the session. They were apt to think in Congress, when any bill waa presented for improvement of streets here or lor the erection of buildings, that it was some lobby scheme, and somebody Would move to lay it on tbe table. This was all wrong. Congress owed it to itself as well as to the nation to make tbe national capital worthy of the country. It would remain tbe capital of tha nation for all agas, [tremendous applause, lasting for some minutes,]?unless Congress should happen to remove It. [Great laugh* ter J Mr. FarnswoTtb depicted in eloquent terms tbe natural advantages of tbe city and Its surroundings, and predicted a future of prosperity and oucoesa for its various interests. With reference to tbe speech of tbe gen. tleman wbo bad preceded him. be alluded to tbe tact that tbe venerable Representative from Pennsylvania, Hon Tbaddeus Stevens, had this day Introduced a bill to establish a svstem of common schools in the IMstrletof Columbia. Mr Faraeworrh concluded bv pledging his support to aU measures that might come beforaConiirfas which wonid promote tbe interests of tbe District. After more music tbe president announced tbe tbird regular toast, which was: "The Prase of Waahin?ton In the van of ?? , provetneut* May their efforts in tbe c inae of prqgrvaa and enterprise meet with deterred success." >i?
