The Low roofed utile school House. Again alone and still n dreaming in age almost s ruin. But yet very very desk to the heart that la Ita Spring time with no ill or woe to fear All a shadowed by life s sorrows a so Light and Happy Here. A what a curse can nothing be done a what a curse cried i Trio of her morning after a few hours spent in various Calls. Can nothing be done to put a atop to this intemperance ? i had promised to give a Man employment and a he did no tense at the appointed time and i had a few moments to spare i determined to go and see for myself if All were True that he bad told of his want and struggles and Quot doing his Best. I followed the direction to the second Story of a crowded tenement House and As i knocked at the door of carved that the place waa decent and an Effort at cleanliness seemed to have been made. My Knock repeated finally brought a Gruff Quot come to a and 1 entered a room in tolerable Good order and a tidy As circumstances would permit. In a chair near the fire sat the master of the Bouse with Dull complexion and cleared Aud watery Eye drunk. It was the old Story. Here was the secret of the Mournful tale of trying Day after Day to find employment without Success. Just As i was turning to leave saying in my mind Quot what a curse a his wife came in with a bundle of coarse work on her Arm and leading a Little child by Tho hand. A glance told my business and the slate of things. She tried woman like to excuse him Quot there could not to s Kinder or a better Man than when he was himself but to had no work and a Friend asked him to take a Glass and he had not strength to this was the end the Insatiate Devil was awakened and i shrewdly suspected that a Bruise on his wife s face had some connection with the drop he had taken. It was useless to talk with Bun so i left word for him to come to my when he was sober. Having a Call to make in the next Street i went on musing when my attention was arrested by sounds of uproar and confusion and from the door 1 was about entering rushed Forth the terrified wife and children of a Man Olio in Drunken fury was breaking All before him. And pelting them with Tho fragments. Fortunately a police officer was at hand who kindly took care of him and in arched him Oft to a Moro quiet place. Another Day i had occasion to Call upon poor woman to have some work done poor Lone Bachelor that i am and found her looking Pale and Woc begone but doing her Best to make things tidy and decent in the midst of half a dozen children. There Are no Moro discouraged looking beings in these Northern states than a poor woman with a drinking husband and a family of children. Fast present and future Are Aliko dark. She looked up eagerly at the mention of work As if she thought Only of the Reward Ami not at All of the toil and Tho Midnight labor to get it finished. Quot you see sir i must do something fur the children to put bread into their Quot hut where is your husband does he not support you a Quot yes sir when he can get work but like most of the men he is a Little unsteady a yes a Little unsteady Quot i thought Quot works half the time to buy rum to to drunk with the other half a a the next cull was but an Echo of the poor woman had just Chino in from a hard Dav s work having left Turco Little children alone All Day while she was earning a Dollar to buy them bread. Tho Mauiu old Story. Quot yes sir John a a Little unsteady a Quot does he do nothing for you a Quot no sir of late nothing he has got among a bad set and they have led him Quot of i Quot thought i Quot is he led or Leader a Quot but Why do you live with him a Quot Why sir he will come Home i can to keep him Quot then move Oft and Incavo Quot hut sir he follows me ind i can t hide away from him. Tho last time lie was so mad that when he found me he came in when i was out looking for a bit of work and drove the poor children into the Street and broke the Glass and All Tho plates and on another Day in one of my Calls found a Man quietly at Home having actually brought All his wages and looking tolerably comfortable As his wife was preparing him some supper she had just bought. The children looked up half afraid As if they were not sure in what mood they might find him. It seemed a Good Opportunity to reach him and when i was alone with him for a moment i spoke of steady work stud of Tho Comfort to himself and family that steadiness would bring. He listened with interest and his Eye glistened As he promised fair that he would never drink again. Alas 1 knew How Many times he had made that Resolution and broken it. So i tried once More Quot will you not sign a Promise with me not to touch a drop a i did not say pledge i knew he would take alarm at the very word. Quot of no in he shrunk Back he Quot would not sign away his in vain did i expostulated it was but to give him the strength of a written Resolution in the hour of temptation. No the master of evil had spread ins snare but too certainly and the poor Man was unmoved. With a sigh i turned away. I would give him employment so Long As he would refrain but what Power has a Man against the Demon with him in the shape of diseased nerves and craving appetite. So i went away crying with Jonny Hodges Quot what a curse Dan nothing be done to put a Stop to this intemperance a a Clook with Peculiar compassion upon a Man with a Drunken wife and it is pitiable. There is something so unnatural in a woman s being a slave to so vile an appetite there is something so cheerless Aud forbidding in such s Home. Yet the Man has one resource he can leave it and leave her but alas still worse for the woman with a Drunken husband she cannot go or if she try he May follow and claim his Home the Law give All to him wife Aud children and she has no redress. Quot what a curse can nothing be done a after an absence i need not say precisely Bow Long these visits were repeated but i was astonished at the change that bad taken place. I to Maul in each Bouse comparative Comfort a smiling Wile tidy children Good furniture abundant food All Al Vuletta of simple Comfort. Peter Sykes overtook me on the walk and led me to his door with sary to its introduction waa still willing to evident Pride. John Holmes met to at his allow Richard a very Liberal share of thu door with a smiling face and each one profits on its Sale. Cd eted me with evident consciousness of Richard Tho became a sort of hero in Ter times. I was puzzled something 1 Hettye a imagination. She watched him in saw had been done but merely congrats silence for they Seldom exchanged a word lating them upon their happiness i refrain and saw How greatly he improved a to cd from asking any questions and had just grew to manhood and his Well knit figure stepped into a shop at the Corner to inquire lost the awkward angularity that had Char Fiat had taken place during my absence act cried the ungainly growing boy. To when i awoke and behold this was a would come in quietly at of Ching and if to dream. The evil was real the Reform Only had to wait for his Mother would sit Down a vision. In Tho Little sitting room below stairs take1 i was disappointed to have Wanked so a Book from his , or from Tho table soon Only Ngam to cry a what n Curso and presently become absorbed in its per still can nothing to done a my waking thou to Only to be aroused by his mothers announce do not Lead to any was out of Tho difficulty mint that she was ready to go borne.

Hut we have no such fully Pisco in his Ronch at Elioso visits such Power Here. Moro than this Quot whisky is the poor Man s Why should he exercise More self denial than thu Rich. Recently there Haa been a panic about poisonous liquors which has actually frightened some men into abstinence. Perhaps it m As she thought would most interest him and even suggested to her father that to should offer the Young Man Tho Usu of his Library. This kind intervention of Hettye a coming to his knowledge Richard took occasion to even Tho property of mrs. Gardiner the president of the United states in n hopelessly involved in Tho attempt to save speech which i made Here not in term a a him lie deserted his Home and having com Strong and so direct As those used by the Nii Ted some crime that led him to Fleo from legislature but in terms which involved the immediate Pursuit he was supposed to have same thing. I was sorry to be compelled left Tho country. At this period mrs. Gard to do so but i Hellevi it to to my duty to Iner overwhelmed by shame and Mort Ifica do so and in discharging hit duty i la let Tion died and poor Amy being left utterly myself As nearly As i possibly could within Alono and destitute was invited to become parliamentary and proper language taking an inmate of Richard a Homo not care however to express distinctly the idea now Trio pretty cottage but a mansion in which i entertained of that message. The size and luxurious appointments befitting legislature of Maine has terms rather i his great wealth and High station. Hero stronger and More direct As they were com-1 her Days were passed. And hero death polled to do in passing a Short Resolution in came Ere Long and carried away its weak expressing the same idea hut i have yet to learn that there Ore no occasions upon which and irresolute victim. Tho Quot mechanics and his wife arc still living and neither of them i think looks Back upon any event of their lives with their marriage has been Ono of uninterrupted happiness because founded upon Tou Tual esteem and an enduring five and not upon any base calculation of advantage or worldly Gaim and so to leave them Rich or than All in Tho heart s truest Content mint. In my dream they had grown so poisonous thank her in a few Well chosen words and that they killed Oil the drinkers and fright the two gradually fell into Tho first conver ened others. This on the whole would not station they had Ever had though to had be a Bud move. Frequented the House for years. It could hardly have been done by the acquaintance thus commenced was the pledge. Satan has attached too much not suffered to Dio out. Richard had too odium to that.

They knew Well that such a Man As Richard blur Vord was sure to make his Way in the world to impress his Mark Oil the Community and they uttered none of those Sage suggest ions which first disturbed Hettye a peace at mrs.

Hetty May Lud been reared in a comfortable and even luxurious Home. Her experiences of life had always been pleasant such n companion. Afterwards they came Back and Hetty took her place As mistress of Tho Little cottage. It would be foolish to say that Hetty did not find Many lonely hours there when her husband was away und no Lively friends came to relieve the tedium of her Solitude.

He squandered his Fortune and Aud having advanced All Tho capital no pcs or Oun and at length when All was gone on the 2 it the ult. Or. Fessenden presented in the Senate of the United states Tho resolutions Quot relating to Kansas and slav cry a adopted by Tho legislature of Maine and already published in Tho and after Thoy were read by Tho clerk the following discussion ensued or. Fessed n. I move that Tho resolutions to Laid on the table and printed. Or. Mason. M. President there is Rule of the Senate i think which requires that All petitions or other comm Micat ions made to it should be couched in respectful language a Rule adopted not to preserve or from regard to the dignity of those w to arc senators but to thu character and dignity those whom senators represent. I take for granted that the honorable senator from Maine who presented these resolutions considered Flint his duty As the senator of the state whose resolutions they arc required him to present them but the honorable a Cantor knows that in those resold Sions the act of the legislature of Maine Thero is charged directly and in terms Krlly upon Congress falsehood upon Tho Sid Cut and infamy on the judiciary. Now sir i have always considered it a duty in the Senate to receive communications from one of the states of this Union whatever May be cont ipod in Tho general rules of the Senate taking for granted that the states of this Union would respect themselves in their Intercourse with the Senate of the Union. I have not a word to say either in censure or advice to the honorable senator representing the state of Maine and who has thought it his duty to present resolutions of this character. My respect for the states of the Union will deter me from doing Flint if the communication came from any other Quarter i should Scein it my duty to those whom i represent to do moving that the resolutions to rejected. I win Continuo to respect Siw of Aiea Uci Tiu Union who arc particularly represented hero in the san Etc and who no parties to Tho government. Hut i have risen Only to Call Tho attention of Tho country to the tact Flint because of this slavery agitation one of the slates of this Union hns thought it not us becoming in her in n communication to Tho Senate to charge in terms perfidy upon Congress falsehood upon the president and infamy upon the judiciary i shall make no motion. Or. Fessenden. Or. President i sup pose the fact that i presented these Ruso unions renders it incumbent on me to say i lord or two in reply to the honorable son nor from Virginia although lie has been kind enough to say that lie would not hold to responsible for the action of the i Egis Saturn in adopting them. 1 think he must have mis apprehended some what the resolutions or else i have mis apprehended them and i say to him that i have no desire to escape irom Tho responsibility of presenting them arc also it was my duty to do so but i go further and say most distinctly that i approve and i Dorso what has been snid in Tieso resolutions. I say sir the senator has mis apprehended them because they make no charge whatever upon the present Congress. In speaking of perfidy they speak of the past. Tho Resolution with reference to Tho Missouri restriction has reference to a previous Congress and 1 have yet to learn that it is disrespectful to this Congress to Sacuk in disrespectful terms of one of its predecessors. I do not know that we Aro called upon to vindicate in this Way what May have been Dono by our Here. With reference to the opinion expressed As to the repeal of the Missouri restriction i Havo said the same thing upon this floor substantially Ovid upon any proper occasion 1 am Reedy to soy it again. I always have considered Tho repeal of that restriction a breach of the plighted Faith of Tho nation and i have said of Here and i think that Resolution Days no More. I May Havo mis apprehended it. I read the resolutions hastily. If i am incorrect the senator will Correct me Asho has the resolutions before him. The senator has spoken of Tho Chargoy of corruption upon the judiciary. Why sir the judiciary of Kansas not of Tho United states. 1 go just a far As the legislature of Maine docs and say that i consid i it a corrupt judiciary to All intents and purposes. Duty May compel a member of the senat or my compel the legislature of n Sovereign state to speak distinctly and directly of the character of a communication made to Congress by Tho chief magistrate of the United states. Sir if Tho chief majr tract of the uni Ted states chooses to Indurai and make i own what is false in fact it is a matter that involves his own personal Honor Sui flip must to responsible for it like other men to pub lie opinion. Tho president of Tho United Stales made statements in the communication alluded to in these resolutions which i undertook to show upon this floor he must have known to be incorrect when he made them. I used no offensive epithets w Ith regard to him i use none now because i choose to use no offensive epithets with re Gard to any person unless absolutely compelled to do so but if my duty Calls upon me to Stutch a fact and to expose statements that have been made by officers High in Tho i Blic Confidence it makes no i Flronce now High they Aro the higher they stand the greater is the breach of duty they perform and the More Clear and distinct we should be in pointing out the fact to the attention of the american people. The legislature of the state of Maine has done no More than that and the senator from Virginia May make such motion As lie chooses. I presented the resolutions on my own responsibility As a senator. I do not Desiro to shield myself behind the fact that i Ain a senator of Tho slate and bound to present them. I present them willingly cheerfully because they Tell thu truth in a judgment and whether they Are print 1 or not according to thu common Mode of proceeding of the Senate is a matter of great Indi Florenco to inc. I Havo present d them respectfully to the Senate. I leave them at the disposition of the Senate with the Ordinary motion that they be Laid upon Tho table and printed. Tho resolutions were ordered to lie on Tho Tabic and be printed. I have expressed that opinion in private and 1 Ain perfectly willing to express to in Public. L he Acta of Tho judiciary of Kansas 1 consider to have been disgraceful to any persons holding the judicial office. Thero is Ono other Point of which the senator has spoken Ami that is the Chargo made upon the president of Tho United states of having falsified the state of things in Kansas. 1 am yet to learn that it is a breach of Tho privileges of this body to present a Resolution hero disrespectful in terms to the president of Tho uni Lud slates. I do not know on what ground we should reject a petition or Resolution for that reason. To have a Rule or an understanding among ourselves that resolutions and petitions presented to Congress should be respectful in their terms to the body to which they arc presented. That Rule is very Well but 1 think the immunity goes no further than that and i know of no reason Why the people should not in their addresses to Congress speak As they feel with reference to other branches of the government. I know nothing that they infringe. If in Lii Hasty Reading that i gave to these resolutions 1 mis apprehend their Tenor in Auy particular Tho Begalor Asho Lias them before him can Correct me but if there a any breach of the privileges of this body soft Ras 1 have committed any i so ready to be responsible for it in Tho proper Way. 8ir, i have spoken of Tho message of 1 Ami the London it i to girly Lite a a a. Till philosophy of Pitin. Sir Humphrey Ivy when a boy with the defiant cd Nanncy of youth which look a yet Sull Rcd nothing held the opinion that pain was no evil. To was refilled by crab who bit his too when to was in bathing and in ado him Roar loud enough to to heard half a mile Oil. If to had maintain a by Siroi Smitly Ila Osl Zaiss a a a Row Oil Ilu so cd Trine would Honvo been unless the whole Constitution of Tho world were altered our very existence depends upon our sensibility to suffering. Ail anecdote which is quoted by or. Carpenter in his Quot principles of human physiology a from Tho Quot journal of a naturalist a allows tit fatal fleets of a temporary suspension of this Law of our nature. A drover went to sleep on n w interns eve Ning upon the platform of n Lime Kiili with one leg resting upon the stones which had been piled up to Burn through Tho that which was gentle warmth when in Laid Down became a consuming fire before he Rose up. Ills foot was Burnt Oil Abov the ankle and when roused in he morning by the Man who superintended Tho Lime Kiln he Pul his stump unconscious of i Mial Ortune to thu ground the extremity crumbled into fragments. Whether lie had been lulled into torpor by inc carbonic acid driven Olf from the Limestone or what pvt r else May have been the Curuso of his insensibility lie i it it no pain and through his very exemption from this lot of humanity expired a fortnight Aller words in Bristol Hospital. Without Tho warning voice of pain life would be a series of similar disasters. Tin crab to Tho lasting detriment of chemistry might Havo eaten Olf the future sir Humphreys foot while he was swimming without his entertaining the slightest suspicion of the ravages which were going on.
