His iootfnU Is so gentle:  He comcs with so much Rrace; And such a plaintive sweetness Lights up liis shadowy tace— We hail bini as he cometh. And at his side w-? stray Wherever valley bloometh Or tinted tonntams play.  Behind him bnms the glory  Of mingling gold and green; The woodland robes to meet uim In summer's crimson sheen— And when at eve he slumbers.  His velvet couch Is spread Where music's softest numbers Are melting round his bed.  I saw him kiss the summer.  As In his arms she lay— She trembled at his bt.IdncBS,  Then blushed and turned away; She wrapped his mantle round her  To hide her vireiu brow— So light of heart he found her, Bo altered leaves her now.  Can ye ni>t roam together. And side by side illume The hilltops and the valleys  With mingling gold and bloom— One hand the emerald braiding  Through many a gem-lit told. And one, the darker'Khading Of crimson and of gold?  Thou liiest and he follows  O'er mountain, moor and lea— Hts cheek is rerl with anger,  JTo lover now is he. He tramples the wild bowers  Thy hands have tcmled long; He chillg thy fairest flowers. And mar-s thy tide of song.  Oh, Summer, linger near us— Stay by dear Autuiuu's side. He'll crown thee with a garland.  And thou Shalt be his bride; Thou 'midsr his auburn tresses  Thy myrtle blossoms twine. Nor tiy him when he i resses His ruby lips to thine.  What did ìt Mean?  BX THE AtlTHOR DOEOTHY  DONED,  OF THE PROBATION OF "" ETC,  St. James' Hnll wns crammed; stalls, balcony, orchestra seats, all were inll; cue vast mass of bnuiaiiity; and yet it was only one of the ordinary Saturday Poijular Concerts that was about to take ])Iaee; those concerts that have taken such a liold ou the hearts of the London piiblic, th.it they have but to bo announced, and forthwith their success is iusuretl.  But this nfteinoon the h.i'l was unusually full; one of ilK okl fav.nites—and the London i)ublio is very faithful to its favorites—was about to resume his vio'i i after mouths of long aud tedious illi-.ess. aud was to bo ¡rreeted wi:h that storm of ap' plnuse such as the htibitues of St. James' Hall love to give to tlmso who hive miuis-toied well and faithfully to theii- plcasme.  Just as the clapviiig aud BhSiriug was al its very height, when the whc.Ie large room was vibratingr fiOai end to end with the sound, aud tha hero of the occasion was tossing back his long hair, that fell like a laaue over his face as he bov.-ed again aud again in acknowledgment of the plaudits, a little old man, with quite white-h.iir, frail, fragile, and well-drcH.sed, walked uoiseless-ly up the room, aud took up his ];o.sitioa ia one of thK outside sUills, sitting down quietly amid tha tumult, and Jetting his bright keen o'.d eyes rove as though iu search of some one far over the htvid of the bowing violinist to the seats behind the orchesti-a.  They wore densely packed, as they usuiilly ari', with thos. lovers of good music who are content to wait jintieutly for an hour or more to hear the soiiiids Iheir souls deiight iu for tho mode! ate sum of one  clll'i:.-^- 'X-*!.".™- ----- -..A ...„Xjlx r/CilUt.>  naiosig them—there seldom is among musical people -so that the one face for which the litt e old man was ¡ieoking eo fttgerl ," stood out among its Bnrl'oundingB as S'lma beautiful picture ill n crowd of commTu-Vlace mediocrities. It was a sweet, fair face, but with a dopih of sadness iu tha Lirga gray eyes, that looked oUt Of jilace ill one apparently so yoimg  Sho—for it Was a woman—was dressed in mourning, and had just laid aside a book in which she had been absorbed when tho great violinist came in. As she settled herself in h'r seat after the tumult bad subsided, and the business of the afternoon was about to commence, she became aware of the gaze fixed so earnestly on her. She did not seem surprised; ail last year at those same concerts, all this year up to tho present time, she had feit those keen eyes riveted on her, until she begun to look ou them as a matter of course, having forgotten both the annoyance they had caused her nt first and the amusement of a later period.  Latterly, she had made up her mind that the little old gentleman was an amiable _ lunatic, as time after time, in whatever | l^art of the hall she chiinced to 'oe, his quick eyes found her out. and kept her in a fall staro throughout the whole performance.  But nothing more; no meeting her at the door, no following her as she walked home; no. She said to herself, he was a lunatic, but a gentleman, and with that reflection perhaps, the music would begin, and she would forget all about him. But to-da3% as she smiled to sec the face she had grown so used to that she missed it if by a rare chance she were ;ibsent, she could not but remark that it had. as it wei'e, aged sines the last week; the lines of age that formed «network over the delicate, sensitive old face seemed to have deepened and widened, tho eyes to have lost somewhat of their bird-like brightness.  "How my old gentleman has aged this last year!" she thought carelessly to herself, as she drew in, with exquisite delight, the sweet wail of the violin, touched by a mas-ter-haiid, that quickly drove all oiher thoughts out of her head.  Two hours later the concert was all over, and Helen Spencer was descending tha somewhat breakneck staircase that leads from tho orchestral seats, with her ears still linging with Beethoven aud Schuihanu, and a somewhat eager smile of anticipation on her lips, utterly forgetful of her .ittle o'd gentlemtin. She was in hurry, for she was not the misirefis of her own time, and was walking down Piccadilly as fast as conventionality will allow you to walk in a crawded thordnghfare, when her passnga across the street to the Green Park was stopped by a eUing of carriages. " The brougham that halted immediately iu front of her was small and perfectly appointed, aud for one moment Helen caught a glimpse of its occupant. It was her litUe okl gentleman, but he did not see her; he lay back among the cushions, wilh his eyes shut and a look of deadly weariness ou his pale, thin face. A pang shot through the girl's heart; how ill he looked, aud how lonely he seemed! almost as lonely as she was. " * And then there was a move; the carriages had passed on, and the policeman was motioning to her to take advantage of her chance' of crossing.  Another ten m'nutos brought her to her destination, a house in Grosvenor place, and as the door was opened to her by a solemn butler, she asked nervously, "Is Mrs. Fane come in yetV"  "No, miss," he answered, and with a lightened heart the girl ran quickly up the staircase, and entered the drawing-room aluiost as though afraid to pause.  Swift as a flash of lightning Siere passed over her faco a smile of intense pleasure, to be succeeded at once by her usual serene gravity, as she perceived that the room was not untenanted; a tall, fau'-haired man sat in one of the arm-chairs, reading the day's paper, aud by his side tho tea-table, with its inviting load. Helen had thought of retiring, but the sight of 1 he tea. was too much for he. She was so tired—music always exhausted her, because she loved It so well; there could be no harm in;Sitting down for five minutes, even jf'he "was there; and drinking a Cnp of tea in his company; so she advanced iu-tto|thoi|o6m.' iThe ftiir-haired man jumped hpat once.  „'.-"Been to your bjeloved ' Popular/ Mies Spencer?" he asked, "Then yon must be tiredirand almost beiore she could tiiisWor.  she not speak? "Why did she fee! inclined to cry? Why was she -so foolish as to enter the room at all?  "Yes," she said, with on effort; "1 have been to the 'Popular,' and—are you come up from Woolwich?"  "I suppose so," he answered, with an amused smile; "and this time for a fortnight."  "Por a fortnight?"  "Yes. Does that displease yon?" gently.  She gathered her senses together.  '•It can be nothing to me either one way or another," she answered rather bitterly, and puther cup down. He looked at her in amazement, and was about tj Speak, when a loud knock at the door caused him to go to the window.  "It is my mother," he said, as he turned towaid the room again, and then perceived that he was a.one. Miss Spencer had fled. Before he had time to more than give way to a muttered exciamation there was a rustle on the staircase, a rustling of silk and satin, heralding the approach of a pei-son fttll of her oWn importance. It was Mr. Fane's mother. She came into the room: Lifge, handsome, moneyed.- arrogiint—one glance at her told you all this. A strange cqptrast to the slim, quiet mar, whom she called her sou, and whom she looked at suspiciously.  "You are alone, Edward?" she a.sked.  "It appears so, mother," he answered, with his quiet smile, as he kissed her and put a chair for her.  "I was afrail that designing girl had raced home from her concert to be alone with you, for Jones tells me she is come in."  Edward Fane frowned, "The designing girl i3 a lady, mother, '' he said.  "So she may be, but she is a jibnniless one, aud would, no doubt, like to mari-j- my sou, forgetting what I have striven to' impress oil her, that unless you m iiry with my full approval, not one-  "I have heard that before, hlotliet; there is no necessity to repeat the lesson," he said gravely; antl Mrs. Fane for once felt the rebuke, and changed the subject.  Meanwhile, up-stairs in her bed-room, Helen Spencer was walking up and down, iu a state of agitation that her afternoon's employment hardly warranted. Poor thing! hers was a very sad though, alas! common enough position. Well born and once rich, moving iu belter society than the ladj- to whom she now acted as companion, she was now an orphaU. tediiced by a sdries of i misfoinuiies to destitution. Forced by these Circtiiiisfances to e.irn her bread a-^ either a governess or companiou, she had chosen the latteralternative, attracted by the high salary ottered her by Mrs. Fane, although by no means attr.icted by the lady herself. It" did not requireauy very great a'sttiteuess to tiud out that Mrs. Fane had not obly an arrogant, itapetioiis temper of her own, but that she was A very valg.ir woman. It was a well-known fact that good-natured, extrav-iigant Charlie Fane had m irried her for her money, and had met with his punishment iu bei g worried and irritated into a premature grave. His sonEdward was a d lier-ent kind cf man; but he too was at his mother's mercy, in so far that she hsld the purse-strings, and never failed to remind him of the impor.'ant fact And this son, who was destined by his mother to make some brilliant aud aiistocnitic marriage, Hiilen Speucet loved.  Slie did not deny it; a!as! she knew it but too well; but to-d,iy was tho first time she had allowed it even to herself—she loved him, and she tnust go away. She said it over and over again, iu a soft, despairing voice; aud then a feverish haste over ook her, a desire to fly and hide her ho d sohiewhere, where she might weep out ail the sorrow that was oppressing her, and feel that she had done rightly. For to-day the danger flag had i'oated before hpr pvos. aud something had told her that her love was m a faint measure recipi-ticat-ed. She Went down to dinner with her usually pale face lighted lip by imroMVlS spots of color, and her eyes soft and heavy from tears. Conversation did not t!ow very freely, as far as the young people were Concerned; Mrs. Fane too was preoccupied, tiud Edward had ample time to reflect ou Helen's charms, which to him seemed redoubled to-night, nnd to smile bitterly as he thought of his mother's menacing words to him. Jt was Satuidiy, so Mrs. Fane was not going out, aud her tone was extra im])erious as she bade Helen come and write some letters for her. She had been exasperated at dinner by Edward's absurd politeness and deference to a "companion," aud by Helen's implied acquaintiiuce witii people who did not care to visit herself. Sloreover she suspected au attachment between the two young people, and yet had no grounds on which to frame a definite accusation. There was no help for it, she must pet lid of M ss Spencer, and that without delay. Sim was about to launch upon tiie snbjrct with her usual ruthless abruptness, when sue was spared the trouble by Helen announcing to her that she was very sorry, but if she was not causing 3Irs. Fane'any inconvenience she would like to leave her soon—very soou— in fact, as early ai possible.  Did Mrs. Fane desire anything better?  "You shall go on Monday, Miss Spencer," she said majestically, eyeing the girl suspiciously, aud wondering why she was falling in wth her own plans in this extraordinary manner. Was she doing so in order to have moie freedom to see Edward? If so she should find herself grievously disappointed.  The evening wore away. Mr, Fane came up stairs, but neither his mother nor Helen said one word to him of the latter's departure; and when, on Monday morning, he went out, he had not the slightest idea but that he should find Miss Spencer in Grosvenor place on his retum some time iu the afternoon. It was late whon he did come back, and as he walked up to the door a cab, with two boxes on it, was just driving away. Carelessly he asked Jones who it was that was going io the station, and started, electrified, when that fiinctiouary, with outward gravity but with some inward chuckling, responded that it was Miss Spencer, who was departing— "for good," he added, after a pause.  ""\Vhere is she gone to?"  But, alas! Jones did not know.  To step into a hansom and promise a double fare if the luggage-laden cab were ciiught iqi and followed to its destination was the work of a minute, and soon Edward Fane found himself driving close behind Helen Spencer t'nrough a network of streets and thoroughfares that led to that far-famed region—the East of London. Past Shoreditch Station, the Beth-nal Green Museum, down the Hackney Koad, skirting tho Victoria Park, until the cab stopped at one of those little houses with bow windows, which in their dreary uniformity form the staple habitations in that part of London.  As Helen stepped out of her Ciib, Edward did the same from his; and as she turned to speak about her boxe.s he advanced to address her. He had meant to upbraid her, but the sight of her pale, sad face disarmed him, and he was only anxious for the time to find out that shi had come to some sort of comfort.  "Oh, yes," she answered, feverishly, after she had got over the first start of suiprise at seeing him; "Mr.s. Abbott is an old seiTant of ours, she is sure to make me comfortable, and the clergymnn s wife here is a great friend of mine. Good-by, Mr. Fane. "  But Mr. Fane had no intention of being thussnmmarily dismissed. Ho folio vved her into the house, where Mrs. Abbott was fussing about, into the little sitting-room, all smothered in antimacassars, seating himself on the faded green rep sofa, with a judicial aspect that was almost too much for poor Helen's overwrought nerves. But it did not last long, giving way vei-y soon to a gentle tenderness that was still more trying, and to resist vrhich the girl had to summoji all her courage.  StilbEdward sat on and on; Mrs. Abbott looked in from time to time, but her wom-an's instinct had put her on the right track, and sho' did not iatmde iinnecessarily.s It ended at 'lafet ' in-ilia young man,' over-' ■whèìxried. with-jpHy jind shame for.'his-i'mótl&r'.silT^inaviOonanct,aeclaring>hiB  uncini asb tim-%  sùppreBsed emotion, assured him em-, phatically that she could never consent to I such a proposal, begging him to leave Ijer, ' and excitedly reiterating that he ought ; nèyer to have followed her. , After sach an i appeal he could hot stay, but he went away, promising to himself that not many hours should elapse before he again fonad himself in her presence.  When, the following morning, he came down to breakfast, Joies, who liked his mister, but cordially detested his mistress, broaght him a letter, wi h the simple com-muaication that it had arrived by the first post, for Miss Spencer. Edward took it with simu'ated carelessness, that did not for one instant deceive the butler, and after a histy breakfast, stepped into a hansom and once more drove down to Hackney.  His mother had been at an evening party the night before, and had not yet mads her appearance. He Would be back in Grosvenor place before she came down-stairs, and she would suspecl nothing.  When he at last reached his destination, so comparatirely early was it in the day, that Helen, shrinking from the task, had not yét instrueted Mrs. Abbott not to admit him should he call, and that worthy woman at -once introduced him into her yoring mistresii' presenc?. He found hor busy wri ing. She started up with a flushed, almost angry face when she saw him.  "Mr. Fane," she said. "I did not expect this from you. It is not kind of you to come."  ' This is my excuse." he replied, holding out her letter, "though I own it a poor one. This docunieilt which came for you this moruing looked to me so like business, that, fancying it might be important, I brought it myself. "  "There is the post," sho said coldly, and then fell to blushing iu a manner that was anything but cold. ''Will yon excuse ms?" she continued, opening her let er to hide her confusion. As her eyes fell on its contents she uttered an exclamation of amazement.  "Oh!" she cried, "what does it mean? it can't be me; it is a mistake; read it, Mr. Fane, and see what it means. "  Edward took the letter and read it. It was perfectly plain aud to the point. Messrs. Farley & Smith begged to inform Miss Spencer that, according to tho will of their late client, Mr. Frederick Pa!cy, bh?, with tho exception of a few legacies, was the sole inheritor of his larcfe fortune, his house in Cuzsou street, his carriages, horses, etc., etc., and that they woukl behaijpy t > receive her instructions as to the same.  "Mr. Frederick Palcy!" exclaimed Helan, ■'who is he? I have never heard of him in my life, much less seen him; it must be a mistake, and intended for some other Miss Spencer. "  "We shall see," said Edward. "Your best plin will be to go at once to Farley it Smith, and ask for further explanations. I will go with you. "  "Oh! thank you," said Helen, as she rapidly disappeared up-stiirs to dress, absolutely forgetful that not five minutes ago she was meditating the dismissal of Edward Fane.  Arrived at Messrs. Farley & Smith's Helen found that the letter was no mistake. Mr. Paley had left his money to her, and to no other; aud very little light cotild the lawyers throw on the subject, beyond the f;ict that their client had been decidedly eecentrie, his eccentricity taking à benevolent and musical turn; that he had mentioned that he was much interested in Miss Spencer; that she was a beaiitiful girl, a biave girl, and a great lover of music, and that for these three reason-! ha h id chosen her for his heiress, and once he had let drop that he had know.a her mother intimately many j'ears ago. He had died tho previous morning almost suddenly.  Helen was in despair. "If I could but know who it is who has been SO good to hie!" she exclaimed.  "Iiet us g".to flurzon street," suggested Edward; theii ;a a lower voice: ' "Perhaps you may be allCiWea lo one ntui."  "I think that would be bost," said Mr. Farley, "and I will give you a letter, explaining who you are. to the housekeeper, who has lived there many years. The poor old mau has no relations."  So they drove to Curzon street, Edward waiting outside in the cab while Helen went into the house. Did it not seem as though she were already his afiianced wife? And yet had not a new barrier arisen her tween them? He waited patiently enough, too absorbed in his own thoughts" to count the minutes till Helen came out. Wheu after some time she did appear, her eyes were full of tears,  "It is my little old gentleman, " she said to Edward, in alow, awe-stricken voice.  "Whit, of the Saturday Populary"  She nodded her h'ad; she could not speali. He, too. was silent, thinking of the wonderful change that had come to her whom he loved, till recalled to his senses by the cabman inquiring where he should drive to next. Turning to Helen, ho asked with a suddeu inspiration;  "Where shall I say? to Hackney or to Grosvenor place?"  She looked at him with a deep blush. "I am so lonely," she said falteringly. "Perhaps—^your'mother would like to know. Let it be to Grosvenor place, "  >|c V >(C n  Six mouths afterward Edward and Helen were married.  Eskimo Candy.  It vroulcl seem very strange, and perhaps not vei-y pleasant, to my young readers to hear a tallow candle or the shin-boue of a reindeer called candy. And yet these things may really be considered as Eskimo candy, because they •svould delight the children of the cold ■in precisely the way that a box of bonbons Tyould delight yon.  There is a certain kind of water-fowl in arctic countries known as the dove-kie. It is about the size of a duck, is quite black, has a prominent white stripe on its wings, aiTd its webbed feet are of a brilliant red. When sitting in rows on the edge of greenish rock, these little red feet are very conspicuous. Sometimes, when the men have killed a number of dovekies, the Eskimo women cut off the bright red feet, draw out the bones, and, blowing into the skins, distend them as much as possible so as to form pouches. When these pouches are thoroughly dried they are tilled with reindeer tallow, and the bright red packages, which I assure you look much nicer than they taste, are little Boreas' candy. In very cold weather the Eskimo children eat great quantities of fat and blubber ; and th s fatty food, which seems to us so unin-vltiug, helps to keep them warm and well.  The only other kind of candy that the Eskimo children hâve is the marrow trom the long leg or shin-bone of the slaughtered reindeer. Of this, also, they are very fond. Whenever a reindeer is killed and the meat has been stripped from the bones of the legs, these bones aré placed on the tíoor of the igloo and cracked with a hatchet until the, marrow is exposed. The bones are tlien forced • apart with the bands, and the marrow is dug out of the ends with a long, sharp, and narrow spoon made from a walrus' tusk. I have eaten this reiñdeér marrow frozed and cooked; and ¿iter one becomes accustomed to eating frozen meat raw, it is really an acceptable tidbit; while cooked and nicely ser vedi it would be a delicacy'anywhere.—Lie lii.

There was but a small gatliering of visitors at the ot>ening session of the reunion ot the members of the Constitutional Convention of InSO at English's Opera House, the meettnB b=inK simply for the purpose of orscanlzation. The spectators occupied the main auditor.um, the stage beinK reserved for the "members and the press. Hon. Vim. McKee Dunn, delegate to the Constitutional Convention from Jefferson County, called the meeting to order.  Hon. Geo. W. Carr, who was a delegate from the County of Lawrence to the State Constitutional Convention of I85ii, and who was elected Pres dent of the convention by a vote almost unanimous, was called upon to preside over this meeting of the survivors of the convention.  Hon. William H. English, who %va3 the principal Secretary of the Constitutional Convention, was unanimously electcd Secretary of tho meetiuK. The following members responded to their names:  Oliver P. Badger, delegate from Putnam Countv.  Cromwell "iV, Barbour, deleprato from ViRo County.

As tho roll was called the Secretary announced the names ot those who were certainly known to be dead, and it was found that the total survivors aggregated but thirty-three out of a convention composed of about ISO members.  Uoon conclusion ot the roll-coll. Hon. Oliver P. Badger, delegsto Irom Ptitnam Connty in the Constitutional Convention. Invoked the divine blessing, the members rising to iheir feet.  The ecretary announced that he had letters from two of the members of the convention, and on motion they were read. The letters were from Christopher C. Grah-im and Gen. R. H, Milroy. A paper on "The Unwritten History of the Constiiutional Convention." written by Hon. John I. Morrison, a short time before his death, was read by Mr. English, to whom it was presented by a daughter ot the writer.  Tho evening session of the reunion was more largely attended by spectators than was . that of tho aftemcon, and the programme proved an interesting one, addresses be ng made by Vice President Hendnoks on "The Constitution and Its Amendments;" Hon. ■William U.English on"The Personnel of the Convention;" Hon.

There Was a fair audience of ladies and gentlemen, the proceedmgs being principally of an informal nature, most of the lime of the session being spent in tenevring ac.iuaintanceshipa and indulging in reminiscences of "ye olden time."

English, on taking the chair at the evening session, said: Gentlemen of the reunion:  I thank you sincerely for assigning me the duty oi presiding over this meeting, and I recognize that the selection is made, mainly, because I am the surviving presiding otiicer of the first Legislature held under the present Constitution.  I perform the duty with mingled feelings of pleasure and of pain, which I find it ditacult to express—pleasure in meeting again comrades of a third of a century ago, and pain at the realization of the fact that so many have passed awav, and that the others must speedily lollow.  I fiave never so fully realized the shortness of life and the transitory nature of all worldly honors and responsibilities, as 1 have since the call for this reunion has developed that so many of my old comrades are dead. "When I remember all  The friends so link'd together I've seen around me fall. Like leaves In wintry weather, I feel like one Who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted. Whose lights are fled. Whose garlands dead. And all but he departed."  Of the little body of great men who formed the first Constitution of Indiana, in 1816. ^ have long since passed away, as have also. I believe, all the members of the first thirteen General Assemblies of the Btat?.  I may bo mistaken in thi«, but if there bo a surviviag member of any Legislature of this State, held prior to 1831,1 do not know it, and I have made diligent innuiry to asceitain.  Tho General Assembly which met in 1835 was the 20th that had been held up to that date, and the tot'-il of members elected would aggregate thousands, and yet to day you could probably count all who survive on the iingors of one hand. Even including all the Legislatures up to 1810, there are probably not over a dozen surviving of the thousands comuosing the twenty-five Legislatures which had then been held. Coming live years inrther on, to 18i5, would probably not increase the number to over twenty-five. •  You would doubtless like to know who these venerable and patriotic surrtvors are. To state Bomething of the personnel ot the first General Assembly held under the present, Constitution, and to give some account as to who are the survivors ot the preceding Legislatures, will be the object of this address.  I have already said that I have not heard of anv one being alive who was a member of any Le'glslature of this State held prior to 1831. There may be, of course, and one of my objects In making this address is to call out the f.icts as theye.xist.  1831-2.  I may be mistaken, but I think that Hon. Alexander C. Stevenson, who^ represented Putnam County in the House of Representatives in  1831-2, is theonly surviving member - f that Legislature, and of all the Legislatures back to the organization of the State.  1832-3.  I next come to the Geueiral Assembly of 1832-3.  I have not been able to find that any member of that Legislature survives except John C. Parker, then one of the Representatives from tho County of Clarke.  im-i.  My father was a member of tho Legislature of  1832-3 and also 01 1H33-4, and Ihave often heard him talk about the session being held in the old  Court House of Morion County, and also about who were' then members, but 1 have . been unable to find that any of the L-glslature of i833-i are now alive. Daniel M; BradbU'y .was a member of that LeglsIatnre.from Wavne Connty,  and was talclng^mnota interest In'T this r.'union, but: unfortunately he died ^ since the call > was lBsUed,"aa.dld'<dBO Benatofr Georgo- B. Walker,i  being allvé, and that is my distinguished friend. Col. Richard .W. Thomnson, whom 1 am sure you all delight to honor. Incidentally I will state a fact in connection with this Legislature which may be of interest, as it illustrâtes thé wonderful progress the country has made'sinoe that time. It Is that the record shows. that Henr.v Bradv, who" recentlV died near ¡his cttv,' was then (1335) the sole representative of Marion and Hamilton counties and all the country north of the great Miami Reservation.  183-8.  I find that my friend Thomoson was returned to the next Legislature, which met in December,' 1835, and with him < ame another of my old friends—David Macy—then a Representative from Henry Connty, and now a highly esteemed citizen of Indianapolis, and, as far asT know, is another old friend, Christopher C. Graham, now a resident ot Red Wing, Minn.  183I>77.  It is a little singular that the same three gen-' tiemen, Thompson. Macy, and Graham, are survivors of the n xt Legislature—I-3fi-7—to which-may be added Joshua B. Huckaby; a Representative from Perry County, and Dr. Graham' N. fitch, who subsequently served With dis-! tlnction In the Senate of the United States.  1837-S. ' !  Macy and Graham again turned up as the sole; survivors, as fat as I know, of the Legisla'uré ot 1831-8. My friend Thompson seems not to have been a member. Whether, a political cy-don? struck him about thattime, or he went,up' higher, or got tired of the business, he can tell you more entertainingly than any man alive. ;  18:18-3. ;  As to the Gtneral Âsszmbly ot ISli^tV, Gèorge, W, Carr and C. C. Graham are, as far as I.know,'^ the only survivors; so that it would seem that? of the twenty-three Legislatures held up to that tim ■, there are probably less tha i a dozen now. living. I know ot but eight at this time, but there may be more, and probably are. These Legislatures were all held betoro my day. but I now come to Logielatures of which I have some personal knowledge ^  1839-40. , i  The first Legislature I ever saw was the Indiana Legislature of 18:i9--'40 It was a great event to me, at that time of my humble lite, and has made a marked impression'on my memory.  I rode three days ou horseback from Scott Connty to ludianapolia. In winter weather and over the worst possible roads, to see it and te» attend a Democratic State Convention, although I was not then of age by several rears.  Incidentally, I may say that the convention nominated General Tighlman A. Howard for Governor. He ^vas badly beaten, although a very .superior man; so I tast-ed the bitter of the political defeat ot my party early, and had so much cf it  of Cass County, and Representativo .Thomas at S^anfleia,'oK-'éfc-Jôsèph-: Odunty,' showinfir Tiow; xapldly{thâ8e pioneers in the -legiBlatlon ot-..th«ì  ulfiav  in I he last twenty-five years that I have learned to take such things quite philosophibally.  Indianapolis had then a population of only a few thousands, but was putting on city airs even at that earlv date. I remember there was a riot one night soon after my arrival, growing out of I he m 'rriaue of a negro man and white woman, and it made a terrible sensation  My father, who was a member of the Indiana Leg slature ¡it one time or another for nearly twenty years, was a member of that Legislature, and I remember thac I boarded with him; during my stay of several weeks, at a house kept by Bazil Brown on the east aide of Indiana; avenue, near Tennessee street. The house is still standing, but I think every one of tae persons- stopping there, and there were many, have long since passed away, and I know of but four members of that Legislature now aUve. They are .ludge Fabius M. Finch, Ale-vander C. Stevenson, James S. Shively, and Amzi L. Wheeler.  1810-4L  As to the Legislature of 1810-41, the only members of it that I know to be alive are A. O. Stevenson, Geo. W. Cnrr. James Ritchey, C. C, Graham, and Aaron Rawllngs.  1811-42.  At the next Legislature, 18 »-42, my venerable friend Joseph F. Brown, who I am glad to sea here to-night, was principal Clerk of the House, and he iniorms me that he knows ot but seven members of that Legislature now living, viz.: Geo. W. Carr, James Ritchey, A. C. Stevenson, Christopher C. Graham. Aaron Raw-lings, James S. fchively, and John Pitcher.  1842-41.  I was present at the organization of the Legislature of 1842-13, and had acquaintance w.th mauv of the m mbers, as I was then, for the fir.Tt time, a candidate for a legislative ottice and trying to learn the art of "electioneering with the members."  Of those surviving of that delegation I can name only: Aqudla Jones, now Postmast.r of IndianapoUs; Amzi L. Wheeior, George AV. Carr, Joshua B. nuckaby, James Ritchey and Franklin Hardin.  1843-4.  I had a very intimate acquaintance ivith the members of the Legislature of 184a-4 by reason of being th2 principal Clerl; of the House of Kepresentatives. Judge William T. Otto, long the Reporter of the Supreme Court of the United States, was the Secretary of thfit Senate, and is st U livinz, but Jesse D. Bright the President of the Senate, and Andrew Ti. Robinson, thj Speaker of the House, and nearly all of the ISO men who were my associates in that Legislature, busy with the affairs of state, and full o£ the hopes and ambitions and cares of liie, have nuuc lu i-Uelr eternal rest.  I called the ron ur uic lou memucro ot that House a great many times in that day, but alas, were I to call it now I know but live member.^ left to answer, and but four Senators. George W. Carr, Georire Berry, James R tch y, and John Pitcher are the Senators, and the Representatives are Augustus C. Handy, W. W. Connor. D .vid Macy, and my old and highly valued friend, David JlcCIure, who was from my ovra county. We rode three days on'horse-backover the wor-t roads ever seen by mortal man to reach the capital He came a greater distance in about three hours to attend this meeting.  1844-5.  I now come to the Legislature of 1844-5. When that Legislature met, the duty devolved on me, as Chief Clerk, of calling the House to order If I should call the same old roll tonight, I think less than a dozen would be found alive to answer. I will call Kuch as I know to be living: A. C. Stevenson, Speaker; Alexander B. Conuult, Franklin Hardin. David McClure, James S. Shiveley, J. B. Huckaby, William W. Conner, Robert Hney, Augustus C. Handy; and of tho Senate, George Berry and James Ritchey.  There may be others, but these are all I know to be alive. I went to Washington City before the close of that session, where I rem ined several years, and. conaeqnently, had no connection with the Indiana Legislature until I was elected to the first one held under the new Constitution.  mojt '45 TO '51.  I pass over the Legislatures which met during my absence iu Washington bec.i.use of my lack of information about them and because others are here better prepared to speak of them—such men as William E. Kiblack. Delano E. Williamson, Andrew Humphreys, M. L. Bundy. Jos. H. Delrees. L B. Julian, JohnW. Dodd, J. A. Cravens, Jonathan S. Harvey.  Joseph M. Bull.i, Michael Thompson. C. F. Donaldson, A. B. Conduit, George W. Cart, and other gentlemen who I see present,but have not time to name, were members of those Legislatures, and they were all important and able Legislatures.  1851-2.  In what I have further to say on this occasion I shall sneak only of the first Legislature held under the present Uonstitutioa  It was the understanding iu advance that It was going to be a Legislature of unusual importance. The new Constitution had Just been adopted by an Immense majority of the electors. Its adoption made a careful revision of the laws necessary in order that they should conform to its provisions. The work devolved on the Leg-i islature was, in fact, a continuation of the work begun and outlined by the convention. The new Constitution required that the forms and practice in the courts, which had before that time been very intricate and voluminous, should be revised and simplified, the pleading made more uniform, the then prevailing distinction: between law and equity abolished, and that the general statute law of the tjtate should be reduced to a plain and systematic cude.  "The whole temple of State government, from spire to foundation stone, had to be taken do^vn, remodeled, andxebuilc so as to conform: to the new Constitution aud the progress and improvements of the age."  To do all this properly, and much more that' was devolved on the first Legislature, required' time, and consequently that Legislature was not restricted by the Constitution as to length of session. It was necessarily longer in session than any Legislature ever held in. the State, having met on the 1st of December, 18.M, and'  ing — ------ ------- ------„ - - -------  looking to that end, elected a strOngLegislature. Many of the member.-^ had served in the cOh-; vention which framed the Coustitation and in previous Legislatures, and, as.a whole, it was a : splendid body of representative men.  A glauce over the list will f-how many names of high standing and recognized abll ty, most of whom were called to high and honorable positions. Great as was the number of members of the Constitutional Convention called to represent the people in the 'Congress of -the ^ United States, more were called from the Legislature, viz: .ames H. Lane, John G. Davis." Norman Eddy, i- eorge G. Dunn, David P. Hol-loway, James D. Williams, all dead; and Wil-' liam E. Niblaok. J ames A. Cravens. Joseph H.-Defrees, Mahlon D. Mawon. Andrew Hum-phr-vs, Calvin Cowgill. William S. Holman and William H. English, all of whom are present.  This Legislature Is also ahead as to the number of Its members transferred to the Su' reme Bench, the convention having furnished three and the Legislature five, as follows: W. E.

Thé llt-pubîicans have also secured aimajority of the Legislature, which InsnieH.tJie rerelectioii.bt John Sherman to the LTnited States Senate. The following returns wete sent out by telegraph on the mbrnii:g following the pL ction:  Cleveland.—The whole Siato Keoub-lienn ticscet is elected by from 15,000 to 18,(1(10 majority. 'Ihe Leais ature will be Hei.nblican on joint ballot, with a good w rklng majority in both houses. Tha vote was heavy, aud Eepublicnns on the We.^tern Ees rve came oat in full force, eveiy one feci ng it a duty to do all in his power to bring the connti^- back to Eepnb-licnn rule. This result' will secure the election of a Bepnblican United States Senator, and the early enactment of a law re.un ntiiig the liquor traffic. Another very ]>i ol)uble result of the election will be to elim-nate third-porty prohibition from Ohio politics.  Cor,i;Mj5us.—Returns come iu more s'ow'y than iisua', but there is nnusual regularity iu the ratio of Republican gains. With over four hundred of the precincts in, the Eepublican gains have run from 10 to 40 per precinct nnd averaged 17. At this rate the Eepublicnns will overcome Hoadly'3 plurality of 1-2,000 in 1883 and give Foraker a plurality of 16,000. "With the Pr jiiibition vote kept up at its present tiite it will reach '2-1,000, and the largest Prohibition gains are reported in Demo-c-.iitic precincts. It is, however, to be considered that the Republicans, with the better org;iiii/Ation, got ont their votes in the cities, whi'e ia the country, where the feeling seemed mos' in their favor, the vote was not so fully diawn out. A eold r.iin fell all day, \\i6h no more than a half-hour's cessation at any time. This did not seem to hiive heli:ed the Democrats as heretofore. The Germans in all of the cit es went strongly for the RepubUcans, and the colored men, to a considerable exient. pu'led with the Democrats. Those figuring at Republican State h adqimrters claim 20,000 for the head of their ticket, and no less than 15,000 for the rest of it. The reports from the close counties aud diairicts are in favor of the Republican legislative ticket to the extent that they will have fn ly I'orty majority in the lower hou-e and ten ia the Sénats, but this is estimated on partial returns, especially as to the State Senators. Of the thirty-seven Senators the Republicans claim twenty-one.  Cincinnati.—At the close of th's re-port reliirus had been receive 1 from 776 of the 2,017 voting precincts in the State, which gave Foraker (Republican) a total vote 148,972; Hondly (Democrat), 132,197; Leonard (Prohibitionist), 9,913; net Re-piblicran gain. 12,924. The remaining precincts in 1883 gave a Democratic majority of ]10,91'2. In the pinces heard from we hâve nothing from Cleveland and nothing from tlie heavy Democratic wards in Cincinnati.
