One hundrgd and tweDty-aeven years ago this mouth was born on the little island of the British "West Indies, the man to whom, more than to any other, escopt Washington himself, is due the stability aad strength o[ our government. The era of his active public life was a time that tried men's souls, one of those crises in Metory which bring to tbe foreground in public action all men of talent and power; but among the men of that day, great both in ability and opportunity, no name stands higher than that of Alexander Hamilton. Prince Talley- rand, no meati judge of men, said that he had known all the leading men of his time, but be had never tcnowa one, on the whole, equal to Hamilton. "Many varying elements were mingled in the British subject, born in the tropics, Scotch on his father's side and of French Huguenot descent on his motuere. At twelve years of age ho was placed in the counting house of a Santa Cruz merchant, an occupation little to his taste, as we see from a letter written to a school friend at the time ia which he speaks of the "grovel- ing condition of a but which was per- haps the begming of the mental training that made him so great a financier. During these yeara he read and wrote mucb. One of the productions of his pen was a description of a hurricane which de- vastated tbe island of St. Christopher in 1772. This article attracted so much atten- tion that the relatives on wbom he was de- pendent decided to send him to New York to be educated. After a few months spent .n preparatory study at Elizabeth town, he en- tered King's (now Columbia) College. Two ivents of his college days show the charac- teristics of the future statesman. Ia July, 1784 a meeting waa held in Hew York in the interest of tbe patriots, to stir up public feeling on the subject of ihe quarrel then pending between the colonies and the moth- er country. Hamilton, whose leisure time had been spent in study and thought on po- litical questions, was so impt eased with what was left unsaid by the orators of the day Lnat almost automatically be pushed his way forward to the platform and found mere boy, standing before the eager, aston- ished crowd. A moment's emliaraasmcnt, and then the thoughts with which his miod' was filled were poured forth with the clear convincing oratory for which he afterwards became so famous. In a manner, so unex- pected oven to himself, did he make his en- trance on the political field. Tbe second incident, showing bis coolness in emergency and his tendency to restrain his party from hot headed acts of violence, occurred at the timtj when the British ship Asia opened fire oa York. Tbe feeling against England broke out in an angry mob, which aurged through the town, threatening outrage and ruin to every Tory, Foremost among tbe adherents of the crown was Dr. Cooper, president of King's College, to whose house the mob rushed, only to find on reaching there, Hamilton, standing on the porch ready to prevent their entrance, With his brave words he restrained the an- gry rabble until Dr. Cooper had made his escape. An amusing circumstance connect- ed with the affair is that while Hamilton on ;he porch was using all his powers and his known adheraace to the patriot side to pre- serve his old instructor, Dr. Cooper, labor- ng under a total misapprehension of his part of the matter, was warning the crowd from an upper window not to Hatea to his hot- headed pupil. When the war foe independence broke out Hamilton was in his twentieth year, and appointed captain of an artillery com- pany. His war record was short, covering a little less than a year, but long enough for him to win his spurs at the disastrous bat- tle of Long Island, and to still further show bis bravery at White Plains, at Trenton and at Princeton. Through the whole campaign his company had been distinguished for its discipline, but at the end of all this bard fighting only 35 men were left. The nexL year Hamilton was appointed Washington's aide-de-camp with the rank of lieutenant- colonel. In his young aide, Washington found what ho needed so belp in the countless details of the conduct of the war. In tho immense correspondence and numberless war papers m which Ham- ilton expressed with so much clearness and strength the ideas of bis chief, we see the promise of the political pamphlets that so moulded public opinion in the succeeding crises of our history. In the midst of the war, Hamilton had found time to fall in love. On one of bis diplomatic missions for Washington he bad met Miss Elizabeth Schuyler, to whom In 1780 he was married. By this marriage into one of the most prominent families of the State, he not only won for himself a charm ing and intelligent woman for his wife, but increased largely his social and political po- litlon. At the close of tho war Hamilton entered the law office of his father-in-law, Judge Albany, and after a few mouth's study was admitted to the bar. The act of the New York legislature disqualifying Tory practioners enabled Hamilton and other young lawyers to enter immediately upon a run of business which, usually is the result only of long and devoted attention to the profession. The condition of the colonies at toe con- elusion of peace made the opportunity of Hamilton's life. From hie college days his mind had been drawn to questions of finance and public policy, and none saw with clear- er eyes than be the impracticable nature of the confederation, as a means of government for a large and growing nation. Practically there were 13 sovereign states in leagne for the moment hut liable to be placed at var- iance by the differences that time would surely bring. Congress was simply a name. Between 1781 and 1786 ten millions of dol- lars were called for from the states, but only two and a half millions were obtained. The interest on the debt was unpaid; the ordin- ary expenses of government were unprovid ed for. There was no central power strong enough to devlso and execute measures which were imperatively necessary, while Shay's rebellion and similar outbreaks show- ed the anarchy that threatened on every hand. The confederation was a failure. Hamilton, with his ready pen, used all bis powers to convince his countrymen of the need of a more etable government, while Washington from his retirement urged the same measures. At length Hamilton obtained tho sanction of Congress to his proposal that a convention of delegates from tbe several states be held to review tbe whole governing arrangement and to make such alterations as seemed ne- cessary. Philadelphia was chosen as tbe place of meeting. There in May, 1789, met 55 men, among them Washington, Hamilton, and Franklin, near the end ol lus long and useful life, and through four months worked out their plan of government, in the form of our present constitution. How wisely the work was done, we may judge when wo compare its stability with that of the numerous documents of this class in which the French republic of that time vaialy strove to find safety. A fiery discussion followed the submitting of the constitution to the various states for ratification. Gradually public sentiment was crystallzing In two great parties. One believing In the doctrines of State Rights which bore so bitter fruit in our.great civil war.looked with tbe over-governed nations of Europe, and opposed to the ut- most all efforts to found a strong central power. The other party, later called the Federalists, with Hamilton at their head, feared the evils which arise from weakness of the governing power, and wished to vest the largest possible authority ia the nation, hoping to secure iu that way unity and strength. The most effective instrument In mould- ing public opinion to the ratification of tbe constitution was the series of essays known as "Tbe Federalist." These were the work of Hamilton assisted slightly by Madison and Jay. This series of essays, more than anything else left us by Hamilton, shows the grasp and power of bis mind. He was not great in what one might call oratorical arts, but for clear incisive logic and con vinciog reasoning he has never been surpassed. 'As a treatise On the principles of Federal government tbe Federalist still stands at tbe bead, and has been turned to as an authority by the leading minds of Germany intent on the formation of the Germanic Empire.'' Tbe heaviest burden on the new govern- ment which was ushered in by the accept- ance of the constitution was tbe financial question. There were the debts of the gen- eral government and of the individual states. There was the foreign debt, due to France, Holland and Spain; the army debt for ar- rears of pay and pensions, and a vast issue of paper money to be redeemed. Washington with a sigh, asked a friend "What is to be doap about this heavy "There is but one man in America who can tell said his friend, "and that is Alex- ander Hamilton." Washington made Ham- ilton Secretary of the Treasury. The suc- cess of his financial waa immediate and complete." f'He smote the rock of national said Daniel Webster, "and abundant revenues gushed forth. He touch- ed the dead corpse of the public credit, and it sprung upon its feet." During the aix years that Hamilton held tbe position of Secretary of the Treasury be performed a work for the finances of the country that is almost incredible. Plans for the payment of the interest on tbe na. ional debt, and for a sinning fund to liqui- date the principal; a national bank by means of which tUe interests of the wealthy clasoes might be allied with the government; a tariff on imports to protect the industrial interests of the country; an excise on do- mestic manufacture of spirits, tbe establish, ment of tho mint, and a system of coinage- all these, with every detail carefully work- ed out, sprang in quick succession from bis fertile brain. Aad, in judging of these things, we must not forget that many of these ideas, which have grown to be axioms with us, were untried hypotheses then, and in many cases grasped by Hamilton's mind alone. In 1895 he resigned the trcasuryshlp and returned to the practice of his profession in New York, mingling occasionally in political affairs through pamphlets and by his strong personal influence. But soon he was re- called from his retirement to accept the po- sition of first Major General of the army at the time of its re-organization, during Adams's presidency, and to succeed to tbe position of Commander, in-Chief at tbe death of Washington, which occurred soon ifter. The rivalry which was destined to >ring Hamilton's life to so tragic a close be- gan at this period to show itself. The French Revolution called up many ques- tions ot international policy, which drew still more closely party Hues. Tbe Federal- ists leaned toward friendly relations with England, and complete neutrality in regard to the French troubte, in all which the Democrats saw tbe aristocratic and central- izing tendency which they so feared. At tbe re-elect ion of Adams, the strife ran high, and party feeling was strong on either side. The decisive struggle came at the election of electoral delegates from the city of New York, where Hamilton and Burr, as leaders of the two great parties, met in flnrce strife. Burr won the day and the defeat of the Federalists was complete. But the election, resulting in an equal number of votes for Jefferson and Burr, the Democratic candi- dates, left according to tbe constitutional ar- rangement of the times, the distribution of the honors of the Presdency and Vice-Pres- idency to be decided by the House of Hep- rescntotives. Hamilton, who thoroughly distrusted Burr, used all his influence to secure the Presidency for Jefferson, and was successful. Four years later the two men met again as political antagonists. Burr had found his power waning m his own party, while his relations with Jefferson bad bred only mu- tual dislike and distrust. The governor- ship of New York tempted him, and he put forth his most vigorous efforts for that posi- tion. But his old antagonist was ready for him, and though Hamilton took no active part in tbe campaign, Burr traced to him bis defeat. Baffled In bis wish for political preferment, the desire for revenge was up- permost in his mlad. "With cool delibera- tion he set about forcing a quarrel." A campaign speech, not more severe or bitter than many such speeches, was made tbe pretext, and tbe challenge was sent. Only two years before, Hamilton had keenly felt the sorrow brought by this wretched sys- tem, in the loss of his eldest of twen- ty, in 'fi political duel; but the spirit of tbe times, and the feeling that no etain of per- sonal cowardice should rest on a man who might be called to fill a public place, moved him to accept. We all know the sequel: how one bright July morning, on the banks ot tbe Hudson two men stood face to face, one the great- est American of his time, in the prime of manhood, with all that 'could make life bright and full of promise to him 'the otb. cr, the grandson of Jonathan but a savage politician, his heart filled with bit- ter haired and murderous desire. Hamilton shot his pistol into tbe air, Burr fired with careful aim. So perished in his 47th year, this great statesman. Perhaps no one has ever paid him a finer or a truer tribute than did Am- brose Spencer, in words that sum up the characteristics of tbe man: "Alexander Hamilton was the greatest man this country ever produced. It is be more than any other man who thought out tbe constitution of the United States, and the details ol tbe government of tbe Union; and out ol the chaos that existed alter the Bevolution, raised a fabric, every part ol which is instinct with his thought. lean truly say that hundreds of politician and statesmen ol tbe day, get both tbe warp and the wool of their thoughts from Hamilton's brain. He, more than any man, did the thinking of tbe time." January MILLaOlSTAIKE LADIES D NEW YORK. "The "Widows" The Richest and Most "Widely Known. There are in the city of New York something like a score of ladies who are worth iu excess ol a million, dollars in their own, right Tne majority of them are the wiaows of successful mer- chants or members of families to wnom wealth was an inheritance. There aro instances where through fortunate in- vestments and wise management money has accumulated in. the hands of fair owners, but none is recorded where a woman by her own effort has carved out for'herself such a gigantic fortune. Of course the richest and most wide- ly known of the lady millionaires ol Hew York is Mrs. Cornelia It Stewart, the widow of the great merchant prince. Her quiet life has been olten described. An invalid and feeble beyond her years, she occupies a single suit of rooms in her great cheerless mansion on. Fifth avenue and West Thirty-tourth. street, and lives tho quietest of lives. Alex- ander T. Stewart left nearly 000 when, he died, and the greater por- tion of his fortune went to nis widow. It has not been dissipated, although the mausoleum aad memorial school erect- ed by Mrs. Stewart at Garden City and some munificent contributions to exis- ing charities have drawn upon her in- come. Another lady millionaire, known to nearly everybody and beloved by all wlio know her, is Miss Catharine Wolfe, whose eight millions came to her by inheritance. 01 middle age, just past the half-contury meridian, Miss Wolfe, is the direct antipodes of an "old Benevolent, cheerful, highly' accomplished, and in every way she has hosts of friends, both in her own station of life and among tliosej whom her philanthropy has reached. Her residence, No. 13 Madison a double brown-stone front, is filled with tapestries, bric-a-brac, and curi- osities alone valued at over gathered by Miss Wolfe during her fre- quent European visits, from the latest of which she returned a couple of months ago. She has recently had' erected a new house at Newport Miss Wolfe has given some notable recep- tions, a "Rosebud breakfast" for her niece last winter attracting considera- ble attention. She is connected with some of the best families of tho city, and closely related to the Kanes. Her income is very large, and she is now expending a part ol it in the erection of a spire for Christ Church. Mrs, Susan E. Roberts, to whom has fallen the care of the millions of the late Marshall 0. Roberts, is another charming lady in the very prime of life. Her elegant double residence, Nos. 105 and 107Fifth avenue, is assessed at a very small part of its value. Some time ago rumor had it that Mrs. .Roberts was likely to share with the Chief Executive the honors" of the White House, but she seems to have been true to her husband's memory. Two ladies whoae wealth exceeds a million dollars were brought into pain- ful prominence a few months ago by the attempted suicide of Lieut Gianni Bettini, of the Italian army, in front of their elegant house, No. 5 West Fifty- seventh street. Mrs. Josephine Ayor is the widow of Dr. J, C. Ayer, who made in patent medicines, Mss Lillian Ayer, her daughter, for unrequited love of whom the Italian attempted to end his existence, is a beautiful girl of 20. Another lady with an eventful histo- ry, who is worth in tho neighborhood 01 a million, is Mrs. Frances A. Vander- bilt, the widow of the Commodore.! Her residence is at No. 10 Washington place, Frances Crawford was at one time the undisputed belle of Ala. Young and highly accomplished her hand was sought by many. James F, Elliott, a promising young lawyer, won the prize. After a few years of happiness domestic trouble ended in a divorce. The beautiful grass-widow captivated Commodore Vanderbilt, and despite ihe opposition of his children they were married. The first husband is now in Texas. A bit of gossip which floated around some time ago was that the fair widow yet hod aVarm spot in her heart for her first love and was willing to return to him, bringing her wealth, but after duo deliberation tho gentleman, in Texas concluded that could not induce him again to enter tho bondage of Ms ex-mother- in-law. The largest lady real-estate owner in New York is Miss Mary G. who lives on. West One "Hundred and Thirty-ninth street, near Seventh ave- nue. She owns block after block of unimproved property, including the Polo ground and vacant lots near it Although, the value of her property is immense, it is unromuncrative, and her income is eaten up by her taxes, which aro always in arrears. Miss Pinckney is a somewhat eccentric lady of middle age. Among others of the more notable of the lady magnates may bo mentioned Mrs. Ellea Morgan, tho widow of Ed- win D. Morgan, who lives in elegant style at No. 411 Fifth avenue; Catharine Taylor, to whom Moses Tay- lar's millions fell; Mrs. Jesse Hoyt: Mrs. Paran Stevens, an acknowledged leader in the society of two continents; and Mrs. Hicks-Lord, tho beautiful young relic of the deceased octogena- rian. Of Fifth avenue property-owners five ladies pay taxes oa property on tho avenue assessed atover Mrs. Rebecca Jones leads tho list, being as- sessed at on Nos. 707 and 721. Hannah S. Dillon, May Stevenson, and Mrs. Livingston are assessed for 000 each, and Mrs. E. Coles for 000. There are, of course, a number of married ladies who have inherited a million or more, but whose property is merged with that of their husbands. Notable among the heiresses to mil- lions is Miss Carrie Astor, a petite blonde of 19, of moat charming man- ners, who will enter her second season in society this winter. Mass Astor dresses elegantly but quietly, and wears little jewelry, although her mdther, Mrs. William Astor, lias splendid jew- els. At the VanderbUt ball last winter Miss Astor toolc part in the Dresden china quadrille. Her home on Fifth avenue and Thirty-fourth street has been often described. Miss Edith, Jaffray, the daughter of Mr. E. S. Jaffray, the great drWoods merchant, is a beautiful tall blonde of 21 summers. She is wealthy in her own right, and supports three or four poor girls, besides being active in church charities, her mother being a Presbyterian. Miss Jaffray has been much abroad, and tho homo man- sion, No. 615 Fifth avenue, is filled with gems of the painter and sculptor which evince licr correct taste. She sings finely, her voice having been cul- tivated in Europe, and writes fluently, gome of her poems having appeared in .Harper's. Miss Turaurc, the daughter of Mr. Lawrence Turnuro, is another heiress to great wealth. Miss Turnure isaslender, graceful brunette of 19, and made her deout in society last winter. At the Vanderbilt ball she appeared as an Egyptian princess. Not less than has expended for bric-a- brac alone for tho furnishing of her palatial bouse, No. 192 Madison ave- nue. Miss Turanre was' educated abroad, sings divinely, and is a skilled equestrienne. Her "Huntsman's break- fast" last season was a nine day's won- der. Miss Eva Johnston, the vouneest daughter ol Mr. John laylor Johnston, is a pretty miss of "16, notyet in society, where her mother has long been an ornament Mr. Johnlton's house on Fifth avenue, and his country seat at Plaiufield, New Jersey, are both models of York Letter. A Little Indiscreet. A Dead wood correspondent says; An oc- currence is now the talk of the town, and has given rise to a controversy and bicker- ings that many days will not heal. The edi- tor of a'DeadwooJ dally took a brief vaca- the benefit of tfis liealth, I presume applying the vacancy with a sub recently from the east, who, although a good journ- alist, scarcely understood the customs of the country or the proprieties of tbe office, as evidenced by the appearance iu the very first issue of the "paper under the temporary regime of a strong article against gamblers and of the not least Impor- tant "industries" of the city. It was neither a vindictive nor personal article, nor one of particular local application; but it was suf- ficient to raise tbe ire of the sporting fra ternity, or at least of a certain few, who promptly declared an intention ot boycotting tbe office and of never forgiving the parties responsible for the distasteful publication. On the following day a column communica- tion appeared in a rival sheet, over the sig- natures of prominent gamblers, anathema- tizing the paper and proprietors that had given offense, and attempting to justify their "business" by comparing its character now with what it waa in early days, when "the camp was infested with sharpers, and where all games were and declaring tbat card playing was no worse than church-fair lotteries and kindred enterprises. This short sighted illusion aroused tbe ill-will of num erous old-time sporting men, still residents of tbe city, and the clergy. The former are more indignant than the class first offended. In fact, there is a breach In the ranks tbat will not speedily close, and rich develop- ments are expected. A cumber of commun- ications from the clergy have appeared, with more to follow. In short, there is war all along the line, and all growing out of a lit- tle indiscretion upon the part of a generous brother'of Lhe quill, who bad kindly volun- teered his services for the occasion. W Ayounu girl in Philadelphia who for three years has been a patient sufferer vrith sore throat, has been effectually cured by using Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup. Tbe forthcoming report of the Chal- lenger on deep sea fishes will conmin some remarable forms new to science. Many are luminous, showing firey spots upon Ihe Lead, like the headlight of a locomotive, or ihe QDS. It is supposed ibat are I heir means of communication.

The tem- perature ot tbe water is just below freezing Young Fools that Starry. The sparkers are iookcd upon by parents generally as a nuisance, and often they are right. Nine-tenths of the sparking Is done by boys who have not got their growth, and .hey look so green that it is laughable for he old folks to look at them. They haven't jenerally got n second shirt, and they are no more qualified to get married than a steer :o preach. And yet marrying is abaut tho first thing they think of. A green boy without a dollar, present or prospective, sparking a girl regularly and talking about marrying, is a spectacle for Rods and men. Ee should be reasoned with, and advised to quit it until he is able to support a wife, and to know whom, he loves, and the differ- ence between love and passion, he should bo quarantined or put in a convent erected on purpose for such cases. Nine-tenths of tbe unhappy marriages are the result of green, human calves being allowed to run at large n the society pasture without any pokes on them. They marrr and have children bo- fore they do mustaches; they are fathers of twins before they are proprietors of two pairs of pants, and the Httle girls they mar- ry and are old women before they are twen- ty years old. Occasionally one oE these Rosllng marriages turns out all right, but it is a clear case of luck. If there was a law against galoots sparking and marry- ing before they have all their teeth cut, we suppose the little cusses would evade it In some way, hut there ought to be sentiment against it. It is time enough for these ban- tams to think or fiodin? a pullet when they have raised money enough by their own work to buy a bundle of laib to build a hen house. But they see a girl who looks cun- ning, and think there are not going to be girls enough to go around, and then they begin to eet in their work real spry and before they arc aware of the sanctity of the marriage relation they are hitched for life, and before they own a cook stove or a bed- stead they hare to get up in the nigut and go after tbe doctor so frightened tbat they run themselves out of breath und abuse the doctor because he does not run too; and when the doctor gets there he flails that there is not Unco enough In the house to wrap a doll It is about this time tint a young man realizes tbat he is a colossal fool, aud as bo flies around to heat water and bring tn the bath tub, and goes whooping after his moth- er or her mother, he tarns pale around the gills, his hair turns red tn a single night, and he calls high heaven to witness that K he lives till morning, which he has doubts about, he will turn over a new leaf and nev- er get luarrled till he is older. And in the morning the groen-Iooking "father" is around before a dm.; store is open with no collar on, bis hair sticking every way, his eyes blood-shot and his frame nervous, :ng for the clerk to open the door so he can ?ct eome saffron to make lea of. Less than a year ago thought he was the greatest man that there was auy wliere, but as he aits there in the house that morning, with bis wedding coat rusty and slimy, and bis pants frayed at the bottom and his coat patched at the elbow, and the nurse puts in his anus a little roll of flunnel w'uu a baby hid in it, he holds it us he would a binanna, and as he looks at Ins girl wife tbe bod, nearly dead from pain and exhaustion, and he thinks that there is not provisions enough in the house to feed a canary, a lump comes into bis throat and he eaye to himself tbat if he had it to do over be would leave that little girl at home to grow up with her mother, and he would wait till he had six dollars to buy flannel and ten dollars to pay a Sun.
