And while i am a oms to la old kit agree with the honorable oem Mitt that the or onions of this Bill Are a . Being in Opp minion to the Azotion of the Constitution recited in their Lepori yet i must say that such a decision a a act As it is has changed my whole idea of taxation for the purpose of raising bounties.

It in this specification of rebel naval Dia meters we have mixed up their River with their Ocean Marine. Yet we Bava not begun to enumerate the misfortunes that have oct purred to the confederates in the sea Arm of their service. We can barely glance at the wholesale destruction of their blockade runners at their failure to Onsum mate the contracts for English and French Bulit steamers and that their ill Luck when they have attempted to turn to advantage the few vessels they have captured from us. In this we do not refer to the damage their pirates have done to our mercantile Marine. This has not been inconsiderable but it no More puts a Stop to our Commerce than the shooting of a few pigeons from a passing flock checks up. The moving Masa. The last failure of the rebel Navy was the recent attempt of the Richmond ironclad flotilla to pass our obstructions for the purpose of destroying our shipping and stores at City Point. In this they were Well nigh successful but Fortune was on our Side and report says Semmes was on theirs either of which circumstances would decide the Case in our favor. The Anglo rebel pirate sea King alias Shenandoah is still at Large. As the Lone Star of the Confederate Navy she is steam ing along the coast of Brasil burning our shipping and running up a Long account for England to Settle. She sailed from a British port under British colors commanded by a British officer and manned by a British Crew. Captain Vrbeti who took her to Maderia to turn her Over to the rebels has been arrested since his return to England for violating the enlistment act. But the length of the Shenandoah s Cable is limited and she will soon find the end of it Quot a this habitual ill Fortune of the Confederate Marine stands out in bold Relief against the fact that at the breaking ont of the War the South was As largely if not More largely represented in the Navy than the North. The inference is not that we More Brave nor that we have better from our Young folks.matton.b7 Johh o. Sre fighting qualities than the rebels but that they Lack recuperative Tallent. The Long dependence of the Southern states on the North to Supply their mechanical wants and wastes has proved fatal to them upon the sea. And crippled them greatly upon Indianapolis journal. De Raass of the indians. The indians dwelling within the United slates Are fast disappearing from among men. In 1850, 400,000 in 1865, 350,-000, and the census of 1860 shows Only 296,400. This is a decrease of 60,000 every five years. 9be proportion of decrease is steadily augmented As the path of Empire takes its Way Westward.

One Bright Stamer morning More than three score years a of David Matson with his Young wife and two Heel by barefooted boys stood on the Bank of the River near their dwelling. They were rating there for Pel Atiah Curtis to come round the Point with his Wherry and take the husband and father to the port a few Miles below. The Lively Turtle was about to sail on a voyage to Spain and David was to go in her As Mato. They stood Sherii in the level morning Sunshine talking cheerfully but had you been near enough you would have seen tears in Anna Matson s Blue eyes for she loved her husband and knew there was always danger on the sea. And David s Bluff Cherry Voic trembled a Little now and then for the honest Sailor loved his snug Home on the Merrimack with the dear wife and her pretty boys. But presently the Wherry came alongside and David Wae just stopping into it when he turned Back to kiss his wife and children once More. Quot in with you Man Quot said Pel Atiah Curtis. Quot ther its no time tor Kissi Fig and such fool eries when the tide a and so they Parton. Anna and the boys went Buck to their Home and David to the port whence he filed in the Lively Turtle. And months passed autumn followed the summer and Winter the autumn and then Spring came and anon it Joras summer on the River Side and he did not come Back. And another year passed and then the old sailors and fishermen Shook their head solemnly and said that the Lively Turtle was a lost ship and would never come Back to port. And poor Anna had her bom Bazine gown dyed Black and her Straw Bonnet trimmed in mourning ribbons and thenceforth she was known Only As the widow Matson. And How was it All this Lime with David himself now you must know that the Mohammedan people of Algiers and Tripoli and Mogadore and Sallee on the Barbary coast had for a Long time been in the habit of fitting out galleys and armed boats to Seise upon the merchant vessels of Christian nations and make Alavo a of their Crews and passengers just As men calling themselves christians in America were sending vessels to Africa to catch Black slaves for their plantations. The Lively Turtle fell into the hands of one of these sea robbers and the Crew were taken to Algiers and sold in the Market place As slaves poor David Matson among the rest. When a boy he had Learned the Trade of a Abib Carpenter with his father on the Merrimack and now he was set to work on the Dock Yards. His master who was naturally a kind Man. Did not overwork him. He had daily his three loaves of bread and when his clothing was worn out its place was supplied by the course cloth of Wool and Camm efe hair Woven by the berber women. Three hours before Sun isel he was released from his work add Friday which is the Mohammed Ajo Bath was a Day of entire rest. Once a year at the season called Ramadan he was left at Leisure for a whole week. So time went on a Days weeks months and years. His dark hair became Gray. He still dreamed of Hie old Home on the Merrimack and of his Good Anns and the boys. He wondered whether they yet lived what they thought of him and what they were doing. The Hope of Ever seeing them again grew fainter and fainter and at last nearly died out end he resigned himself to his a slave for life. But one Day a handsome Middle aged gentleman in the Dresa of one of his countrymen. Attended by a Greel officer of the Dey entered the a Ftp Yard end called up before him the aae Tieu stranger waa none other than Joel Barlow.

He then went to the Quay where an american ship was lying just ready to sail for Boston. Almost the first Man he saw on Board was Pel Atiah Curtis who had rowed him Down to the port seven years before. He found that his old neighbor did not know him so changed was be with Bis Long Beard and moorish dress whereupon without telling his name he began to put questions about is old Home and finally asked him if he in w a mrs.

Yet there is nobody in the world with whom it is so important for a Man to be intimately acquainted As his own wife while such intimate acquaintance a the exception rather than the Rule. Every one sees them going on each in his own path each with his own inner world of opinion and Hopes and memories one in name miserably two in All else. Men often have too much Confidence in their measuring lines. They fancy they have fathomed it soul s Depths when they have but sounded its shallows they think they have circumnavigated the Globe when try have Only paddled in a Cove. They trim their sails for other sea leaving the priceless gems of their own undiscovered.

Without wifely and Motherly love a part of her nature must remain unclosed a Spring shut up a Fountain sealed but a thousand times better that it should remain unclosed than that it should be rudely rent open on opened Only to be defiled. A thousand times better that the Vestal fire should Burn forever on the inner shrine than it should be brought out to boil the pot. But the pot must boil you say and so it must but with Oak Wood and shavings not with beaten Olive Oil. What Man Maori.

Quot of you never want any Tody to marry Quot Fiirst out a chorus of voices which was surely a a very Broad inference from one narrow monosyllables. Quot but. Why does he need a wife persisted the questioner. Quot for Alf Patby and companionship Quot triumphantly replies the first woman knowing that to Uch motives her interlocutor could take no exception. But a third woman not knowing that anything Lay behind these questions and answers and feeling that original position was Bill feebly main veined by such unsubstantial things a sym itchy , being Alao a near neighbor of be perion in question and acquainted with the facts proofed the feral of Othello.
