We have but recently commemorated the birthday of the father of his country and renewed our pledge to each other that the nation he founded should not be sundered by the had of treason and the Good news that assures he salvation of the Republic a doubly joyous because it tells us that the prayers of the past four years have not been unanswered and the priceless blood of our Brave defenders so freely shed and so profusely spilt has not been Abed in vain.

Inspired by the Sublimes spirit of self sacrifice they have realized a million fold the heroic fable of Cortina As they have offered to close up with their own bodies the yawning chasm that imperilled the Republic. For you and me and for their country they have turned their backs on the delights of Home and severed the tenderest of ties to Brave death in a thousand forms to confront with unbranched Cheeks the shot and Shell and flame to storm frowning batteries and bristling entrenchments to Blaed to suffer and to die. As we look from this Capitol Hill Over the nation there Are crushed and broken hearts in every Hamlet. There Are wounded soldiers mangled with rebel bullets in every Hospital. In every Church Yard there Are Quot Patriot Graves. There Are bleaching Bones on every Battle Field. It in the lofty and unfaltering heroism of the honoured living and even the More honoured dead thai has taken us from every Valley of disaster and defeat and placed our feet on the Sun crowned rights of Victory. The Granite Abaft May commemorate their Daedal our american Quot Valhalla Quot May be crowned with statues of our heroes but the debt of gratitude to them can never be paid while time shall last end the history of a a cued nation shall endure. If my voice from this representative Hall could be heard throughout the land i would Adjure All who love the Republic to preserve tia obligation Ever fresh in their hearts. The Brave who have fallen in these struggles to prevent an alien Flag from waving Over the Arehea of Washington or Over the Graves where sleep the great and patriotic rivals of the last generation.

All of these it my be observed Are american institutions. In contemplation of them who will not acknowledge that ours a a great country. The Crown of is Zine. It May not be forgotten that a member of the Bonaparte family was offered forty years ago the Crown of Mexico. The Atory is told by the emperor himself in his sketch of Joseph eldest brother of the first Napoleon Quot while Joseph was living As a philosopher on the Banks of the Delaware thinking of nothing hut of doing Good to those around him he received a proposal which surprised and touched him. A deputation of mexicans came to him to place at Bis disposal the Crown of Mexico. The sex King of Naples and Spain and swered the deputation in nearly these terms i have borne two crowds and i would not take a single step for a third. Nothing can be More flattering to me than to see men who when i was in Madrid refused to recognize my authority come now in my exile and ask me to put myself at their head. But i do not believe that the throne Yon wish to raise up can make you Happy and every Day i spend on the hospitable shores of the United states proves to me More and More the excellence of Republican institutions for America. Preserve them then As the precious gift of Providence.

Arriving at my room just As he had deposited the last armful on the table and observing that the old Man looked considerably fatigued Afier climbing three flight of stairs two or three times i invited him to take a Glass of Brandy a bottle of which i usually kept in my room for medicinal and soporific purposes. Although grateful for the invitation he politely declined. I urged but he was i was astonished. Quot do you never drink Quot said i. Quot very Seldom Quot he replied dropping into a chair at my request and wiping the respiration from his forehead. Quot Well if Yon drink at All Quot i insisted Quot you will not find a fair an excuse in the next twelve months Fer indulging for you appear fatigued and scarcely Able to Quot to be Frank Quot said the old Man Quot i do not drink now. I have not tasted intoxicating liquor for fifteen years since Quot Quot since when Quot i inquired thoughtlessly observing his hesitation. The old Man told me sixteen years ago he was a Well to do Mariner near Syracuse new York. He had one child a daughter. While attending boarding school in that City then a girl sixteen years of age she formed an attachment for a Young physician. Acquainting her father with the circumstances he flatly refused his consent to a Union with a Man whom he had never seen and removing her from school dispatched a note to the Young Gallant with the somewhat pointed information that Bis presence in the neighbourhood of the Ainsley farm would not meet with favor. The Reader of course surmises the result for such a proceeding would have but Ohe result. In less than a month there was an elopement. The father loaded his double barrelled shot gun and swore vengeance but failing to find the fugitives he took to the bottle. His Good wife implored him not to give Way to despair but lie drank the deeper and accused her of encouraging the elopement. In three months his wife died and at the expiration of a year when the Yonng people returned to Syracuse from Connecticut where they had remained with the parents of the husband they Learned that the old Man had sold his farm and squandered the proceeds and was almost learning of their arrival Ainsley drank himself into a frenzy and proceeded to the hotel where they were stopping attacked the husband wounding him in the left Arm by a pistol shot and attempted the life of his daughter who happily escaped uninjured through the interposition of persons brought to the spot by the report of the pistol. Ainsley was arrested Trifid and Fht Oji a of info Eilif the dab her Law Jim Eliand Tiiu riled to Connecticut since which time the father had not heard from them. He was sent to a Lunatic Asylum from which he was did missed after remaining eix months. In 1841 he came to California. He had followed mining for two years but finding his strength unequal to the Pursuit returned to this City purchased a hand cart and the rest is known. Quot since then Quot concluded the old Man Quot bowing his face in his hands in agony Quot i have not tasted liquor nor have i seen my poor i regretted that i had been to inquisitive and expire aged to the sufferer the sympathy that i really Felt for him. After that i Seldom passed the Corner without looking for Quot Pap Ainsley Quot and never Law him but to think of the Aad Atory a had told me.

Quot perhaps i May find some Silver in the House Quot said the lady As she left the room Quot for Bridget will not succeed in getting the Twenty Dollar piece Quot come i love Little children Quot and the child who had been watching him with curiosity ran behind the Large Arm chair and hesitatingly approached. Quot what is your name my dear Quot inquired the cart Man. listed the Little one. Quot Maria Quot he repeated while great tears gathered in his eyes. I once had a Little girl named Maria and you look very much like she Quot did you Quot inquired the child with seeming interest Quot and was her name Maria Eastman too Quot Quot merciful god Quot exclaimed the old Man starting from his chair and dropping into it with his head bowed upon Bis breast. Quot this can not be and yet Why not Quot he caught the child in his arms with an eagerness that frightened her and gazing into her face until he found conviction there suddenly Rose to leave the Quot i Caa not meet her without betraying myself and i dare not Tell her that i am that Drunken father who once attempted to take her life and perhaps left her husband a cripple Quot he Gro Ned As he hurried toward the door. The Little one was bewildered. Quot Tou Are going Quot said then Otner reappearing and discovering the old Man in the act of leaving the Hall. He stopped and apparently turned his face but he seemed to Lack the Resolution to do naught else. Quot he said he had a Lite Maria once that looked just like me shouted the Little child her eyes sparkling with Delight. Quot no. No Quot he exclaimed Quot not till you Tell me i am Quot forgiven for what Quot replied the terrified Mother in Quot recognize in me your wretched father and i need not Tell Quot my poor father Quot Ehe cried throwing her arms around his neck Quot All is forgiven a All All was forgiven and the husband when he returned late in the afternoon was scarcely less rejoiced than his Good wife at the discovery. Whether or not Bridget succeeded in changing the double Eagle i never Learned but this i do know it took that honest female All of two months to unravel the knot into which the Domestic family had tied itself during her absence. Quot Pap Ainsley Quot still keeps the cart for Money would not induce him to part with it. I peeped into the Hack Yard of or. Eastman one Day last week and discovered the old Man dragging his favorite vehicle around the enclosure with his four grand children piled promiscuously into it. My Cousin Fanny. I would have some invited Young ladies Fanny my Cousin was a wild fro lick some sort of a girl and As full of fun As any girl dared to be. Without meriting the appellation of a Tom boy. She was up to All sorts of tricks and would play some unmerciful jokes on me whenever an Opportunity presented itself. I at that time was a Young Man of Twenty two just graduated Isom the principal High school and naturally a most Young men do at that age. Thought myself of some importance to the Community. My name was no matter Fanny always called me Quot Cruz i waa paying a visit to Uncle Johns and i waa thrown a great Deal in Fanny s society. I of course became very intimate with her. If Fanny aver played any practical jokes on me i certainly was very Little behind her for i waa naturally vary much of a traae. If i found anything would annoy bar that waa the very thing i waa to do. If aha disliked a certain Book i waa Aura to be continually quoting from it. If aha abhorred a particular Paraon i waa always talking about him and would bring him to tha. House until she would grow frantic and week Taliaf in flood oif Teara which invariably had tha affect desired to make a big Pardon and Pra Miae better Pond not in the Futura for i never would stand Teara. It waa a glorious evening and Fanny intended having a Faw of her Young Kidy with bar to while away tha hours Pla Nutly. Sha waa a fond of Eom a yid ii Waya altar Tainan har Trianda a my Elf. Wal Fann we to he on pay a i concluded that amusement at the a Muse. I revolved several plans in my imagination and finally concluded that i would Alip in the bed room unobserved where the girls would be Likely to leave their capes shawls hats Etc., carry out my practical joke and take my leave while the Girla were busily engaged in the parlor. So Early in the evening i hid myself behind a wardrobe that stood in a Corner of the room a few feet from the Wall fully Bent on doing Home mischief and having a laugh at the expense of Fanny and her friends. I had not been in my hiding place Long before a Bevy of Young ladies All talking at once it seemed to me made their appearance and began diverting themselves of Bata cloaks shawls and other wearing Apps Rifle Quot Fenny Quot said Bis la a up Tang lady to whom i bad been paying pm Tulaf ii ten tion Quot i wonder whether Frank will be Here to night Quot Quot i can t Tell. Bertha Quot replied Fanny Quot i told him that i expected company and that you probably would be one of the party but he simply said a. Indeed and walked off wearing something of a mischievous smile which i could not interpret. There is one thing you May depend upon if be is not Here to night we will be Apt to have some of his horrible jokes played upon us so keep a Good look out girls and let s turn tables on him if Quot yes Quot replied Bertha Quot it would be such fun to play a Good joke on Quot a my beloved Bertha would it a we shall see whether i am to be denied my anticipated sport Quot i mentally said. The girls having relieved themselves of All unnecessary garments and looked each one for the Dorenth time in the Glass withdrew to the parlor and left me sole occupant of the bed room and having the necessary articles before me with which to make some sport. Stepping out from my hiding place i proceeded to tie capes cloaks and shawls together in a string at the end of which i attached the hats and bonnets without number. I intended to Sprinkle Cayenne Pepper Over the whole and give the girls a sneeze to do this i must go to the Kitchen after the Pepper. Noiselessly i stole out of the room into the Kitchen found the Cayenne bottle and was just on the Point of retracing my Steps when i heard the whole troupe of girls coming Pell Mell As though the old Harry was after them. What was i to do under the existing circumstances it would t do to stand still and be caught in that position. It certainly would t be policy to Rush out of the Back door and thereby excite the girls suspicions. I looked around in dismay when suddenly my eyes fell upon the new swill barrel which Fanny s Mother had got that Day and which bad been left standing in one Corner of the Kitchen until a proper place could be found for it. It was perfectly clean and would have been fit to bold flour. It had a cover on it with an opening about ten inches in diameter. Quicker than a Wink i was in the barrel and out of sight of the girls who came into the Kitchen laughing and talking As though they were having the Best times. They evidently were going to Stew some oysters and i. O lord would have to remain a prisoner until such time As they concluded to leave. Well it could not be helped so i seated myself As Best i could fully resolved to stick to the barrel As Long As it afforded shelter. To work they went. The oysters were soon out of the shells and Fanny brushing the shells into a pan. Approached the barrel. Good heavens she was going to empty the shells on my head. Ugh Down came a Shower of shells with such Force As to nearly stun me and Fanny with a laugh cried Quot girls i be christened the new swill barrel Quot at which droll idea the girls All giggled. Well Quot thought i Quot Many things might be worse and the girls May not have occasion to use the swill barrel again. But hardly had the thought through my brain than splash Down came a promiscuous mess of potato peal old bread and cab huge leaves. This Quot Hamlet e ghost Quot cried Fanny. Then a loud laugh from the Girja. I could endure no More. Rushing to the door i was met full in the face by a Banaio of water and an Quot excuse me sir Quot by Bertha while a soft Ball of dough which struck me on the neck nearly knocked my senseless. I rushed from the House and Down a Back Street half a dozen dogs following Yelling at the top of their voices. I distanced them All and soon found myself in a room of my Friend Harry Wilson panting for breath. Quot Good lord Quot cried Harry Quot what have you been doing to get yourself in such a plight rolling in the Gutter Quot Quot hoho Harry Quot i replied Quot give me a suit of your clothes and a Basin of water and i will Tell you All the particulars of you Promise while renovating myself i related to Harry i Yilit in Titre and i thought be Only kill hims Loghing. After i had concluded be slap me on the shoulder and said Quot the Best Quot be of thaia Eason Quot Quot i Don t see it in that Light Quot i ried i rent trained with Harry that night. And the next morning went Back to Unow John s. The first person i met was Fanny who burst into a fit of laughing on seeing me. I tried to be angry but could to and As i took her proffered band. I said Quot a truce to All practical jokes Quot with �11 my heart Quot she replied and you May depend upon it i never afterwards tried to joke with my Cousin Fanny. Ings display of hospitality was accompanied by a Hearty laugh from the girls and i heard Fanny remark that she was making Good food for hogs. Quot i wonder Why i rank Don t make his appearance Quot i heard Bertha say. Quot a on t know Quot replied Fanny Quot unless Haia enjoying himself better elsewhere Quot which remark elicited another Giggle from the Girla. Enjoying himself thought i with a Oan. Quot ugh very much indeed Mia Fanny and i Hope at some future Tima to a Able to give you a taste of the pleasures i am Quot Nollie Quot i heard Fanny say Quot Oye tera Oan not Liva without Watari Quot and Emmadi atoll a Larm pan Ful of dish water waa precipitated on me completely ruining my new boat which i had purchased Only the Day let before and making a feel More like a drowned rat than a human being. I heard a Hearty laugh from the girls and tha suspicion Fla Ahad across me that tha Girla Ware Awara of my presence. I waa Juat in the act of jumping from tha Imir ral when a. Down oame a handful of flour completely blinding a for a to Manor in an i Atiat i waa out of Tea barrel and in the midst of Iha laughing group of Girla. The new to easier. Hugh Mccoloch was born in Wells now Ken debunk Maine and was educated so far As i know in her institutions. His father previous to the War of 1812, was extensively engaged in foreign Commerce in which he was quite successful. But at the end of the War. He found his property largely reduced by the decay of his vessels which constituted a cd i Sid Erable part of it. After the War he resumed his business but a Only with partial Success. His son the present comptroller of the currency was one of a Colony who emigrated principally from Kennebunk port to fort Wayne Indiana Between 1826 and 1830, several of whom Are still living there and Are among the most enterprising and prosperous citizens. Indiana Early made him one of her judges but the development of Bis financial skill soon led to the placing him at the head of the state Bank which he Long managed with great ability and Success. His recent history is Well known to the Cor. Springfield Republican. The wandering jew. The legend of the be Ever wandering and never dying even from the crucifixion of Jesus to the present Day is spread Over Many european countries. The accounts however As in All fables do not agree. One version is this a when Jesus was led to death oppressed by the weight of the Cross he wished to rest himself near the Gate at the Houe of Ahasuerus. This Man however sprang Forth and thrust him away. Jesus turned toward him. Saying Quot i shall rest but thou Shalt move on till i and from that time he has had no rest and is obliged incessantly to wander about. Another very Sion is that Given by Mathias Parisi Enthis. A Monk of the thirteenth Century a when Jesus was led from the tribunal of pilatus to death the doorkeeper named Tartaf uflious pushed him from behind with his foot saying Quot walk on Jesus quickly Why Dost thou Tarry Quot Jesus looked at him gravely and said. Quot i walk on but thou Shalt Tarry till i and this Man still alive wanders from place to place in constant dread of the Wrath to come. Still a third legend adds that this wandering jew Falls sick Jevery Hundred years but recovers and Renews his strength hence it is. Even after so Many centuries he does not look much older than a sept age to Narian. Thus much for the legends. Not one of the ancient authors is i even mention of such an account. The first who reports such a thing is a Monk of the thirteenth Century when Asia known the world was filled with pious Fie a tion even to disgust. However the Story has spread far and wide so that it Baa become a proverb Quot he runs about like a wandering the israelite. A in Eksue Story.
