Xii Crous successful Bank rubber Les strike terror to the hearts of bunkers. After l to i robbery at Ortli Nipton the cashier of one of the new London conn., bunks known among those familiar with his Lintio writing As Oil Zig Zig remarked thut lie been i banker forty years but that lie would now quit the business in disgust Puiul keep a Corner grocery. He resigned but whether he complied hit threat to do not know. The burglars perhaps overhearing his remark and no Douht approving of his Resolution visited new , and passing Over the Bank of which old Zig Zag Hail been cashier opened the doors of another Bank and taking what treasure they wanted walked off after carefully re Locking the vault. This latter tried is i new one invented on the occasion of the Northampton robbery and gave in Cecli Case about went four hours time to tie burglar enough to at least enable them to hide their plunder and perhaps to dispose of it. If a iia Tionel Bank is coping a perfectly legitimate banking business under charter there is Little danger of its continuously having on hand sums of Money or available securities Large enough to tempt burglars. The latter do not to steal discounted in siness j paper in which the bulk resources of n Bank is properly kept. They cannot heal Tho bunking House although there is one instance on record of a Man s stealing a Church and As for the ens necessary to do current business coming in and going out every Day the amount left overnight in the Safe in Ordinary country Banks would hardly pay car fare and expenses of the Borg Lars while they Are panting up the Job for these High toned burglars live Well besides they want enough to Compromise with if they arts afterwords cornered by the detectives.

When spinner treasurer he to per ambulate the at ii ours in Hla dressing govt a and a Leppora seeing thic the watchmen slept not at their posts. In Large Banks it la becoming1 the custom to place the Safe in n conspicuous position near n Frontin doxy from Thuc floor and Nway from the Wall so Eliut those passing in the Street can see whomsoever May be working Neur or behind it. At night the Gas is lit no As to Rennke Nhy one near it conspicuous in the tunic Minnor. Policemen or persons living or pos to Gnu thug see that every thing is right As might the cashier himself if his chamber window la in sight of the Bank. If the Gas u turned Oft or a curtain thrown Over the window it it once attracts attention. It is a Nice Point in rom Tel Phenomena but it us if the care and responsibility consequent on taking care of other people s Money in Large amounts Render inert cautious even to timidity so that ten r by their natural Coli Nuci deserts them. This is suggested by the Way in which Cashiers generally Tell nil burglars want to the City has been wonderfully excited Over Clio marriage of senator Chris Lennoy of Michigan he attracted and won by a Young girl employed in inc Bureau of Nogra Liigand printing Mccarty s As it is called hero. The senator met her at his boarding House and feel deep in love. Tia latter is no respecter of persons to makes the old and the Gay the fat and the lean the Short and the tall the High and the the Rich and the poor the Bright and the stupid All Bow beneath his Yoke and tiny therefore frequently get mixed. The senator is sixty four years old and mrs. Schrut Nncy is Twenty. His first wife had two years before left this world of sorrow and tears and this was As Long a period of single blessedness As the senator could endure. A second marriage is a compliment to the dear departed. In this country a wife is an absolutely necessary appendage ton Man. She enables him to Receiva consideration at hotels and in railway cars. A witty unmarried Frenchman remarked of his experience in the United states that before travelling through again he would borrow his Friend s wife so As to ride in Tho indies car which he had discovered was generally the Only comfortable one on the train and was also the Only one in which single gentlemen were not permitted to ride. On Liis wedding Day some our asked the senator How he could absent himself from the Senate during his wedding Lour. Oil said to i am doubly paired. When his name was called the next Day in the Senate senator ferry the other Michigan Sinator remarked amid much laughter my colleague is paired. The wedding trip of the shortest. In less than a Day and a half Ihu senator was in his seat again. The Treasury girl now represents one third of the Stato of Mie Hignio As senator furry is an old Bachelor. The trial of general bub cock is again attracting Public attention to the whisky ring and the character of the prosecution As Well As the make up of the jury is such As makes it Clear that no favors will be shown him on account of his previous High standing rather the contrary. Army officers Are peculiarly Clannish but they Are also Nice in their sense of Honor. They stand by any of their number who May be accused but if they Flud that he has been guilty of dishonourable conduct they drop him. Gen. Grant s army training makes him slow to believe in the guilt of his brother officer but if it is proven by this trial the president will show Babcock no mercy either politically or socially. The hidden dentil of Reverdy Johnson removes one of the most remarkable men of the present Day. He was a Type of the Early starts Pii of the Republic lie u one of Mie few instances of it Man preserving his intellectual Power and usefulness to so advanced an age. Born in 1790, he was about 80 years of Uge. His Public sort ices were of the most distinguished character. He was a senator con temporary with Clay and Avob Star attorney general under Taylor and was again elected senator in 1802-6x during his term to voted in inst the impeachment of Johnson. He was afterwards appointed embassy Dor to , and was mainly instrument ii in smoothing the Way for the settlement of the Al Buina. Claims. As a lawyer and priest he stood in the Foremost rank cases before the highest tribunals of the country. A week before his death he argued u Case before the supreme court of the United states and attract i of the flight Many Large Trees show tha n in All our walks Orer the Battle held thoroughly has the ground been searched for that we could find Only Only a few piece of broken Shell. The National cemetery for this locality a Beautiful spot on the West Bank of the River just above the Landing. It in closure of about ten acres. Much has Boon done to improve its natural Beauty. The arc a rounded by a Strong Wall of Manor of Limestone Rock. A Beautiful Carr Lac or Vlf is inside Tho Wall. Three very Large cannons stand on Thor base in different parts of the cemetery As monuments. One Largo brass piece mounted pointed toward the River an an indication of what might happen to Southern Cal vary in Case of another rebellion. On n staff seventy or eighty feet High the Union Flag is constantly was. Lug. The government has just completed n Beautiful Brick Lodge for the ice per of Tho grounds. The soldiers Graves All numbered so with the Aid of the i Igister at the Lodge ii the regiment of a Soldier known his grave can be readily found. Judging from a remark we Hoard As we landed in front of the Flag we conclude that it is a source of annoyance to soil though not Many of the Southern people to see our soldiers thus honoured while the rebel dead to outside burled in trenches where they fell. Of our soldiers burled Here according to the Register known unknown always having a desire to study the characteristics of different people we accepted an invitation to be the number at a negro party i was honoured with a Good seat every attention was Given Rue to make the occasion pleasant. But How we were horrified to see the thing the shape it did nothing but a genuine negro dance. Perhaps we ought to have but How could we resist the pleasure of such it came to our heart like a Hood of Sunshine dispelling thought of san Csc. How much we did wish the dr., we mean or.

There was one of the performers Umade Colsell that particularly attracted attention she was tall and straight dressed in swig Muslin Lully get with artificial Flowers her coiffure was a Wreath of Beauty from nature s Garden. What added to the interest of this Young lady was that her whole soul and mind were engaged in the d duties of the hour. After listening to such amusement As Long As we could and maintain our dignity we requested them All to sing some mental song to thought this would sort of quiet our conscience. But to our sad disappointment they not understand in g the word sentimental Sang in the Frog Pond 1 but a finally had the pleasure of hearing the negroes sing i a Soldier of the and Jordan s Stormy Banks i with chorus that were soul inspiring. To then bade them Good night humming my favouring tune country tis of thee Sweet land of Liberty. Yours truly h. P. The fallen Elm. The tree wat filled u p.

Boston has lost its most and revered landmark. Tho old Elm on the common near the historic Frog Pond was blown Down by the Gale on tit Day night. The newspapers of Boston lament its loss and devote columns of their space to Ita history. Bastoky of thu Kim. The tree must have been More than two Hundred years it must not be confounded with the Liberty tree of 1765, which was torn Down by Briti h soldiers in 177s, and which was then one Hundred and Nineteen years old. The old Elm on the common was called the Liberty tree of 1784. There is a tradition that i Lezekiah Henchman one of the progenitors of the Hancock family the same he Crinan who was a schoolmaster and threw aside his Birch and Book to fight the Indiana during King Hlll p s War in de the tree when he was u boy. Or. J. C. Warren however in his monograph upon the great Elm in asserted that the tree was More than two Hundred years old and that Tho Hancock traditions were Only traditions. The traveller says the associations connected with the old Elm have put it to almost every purpose under the Sun., from n Gibbet of infamy to a Liberty Ivee of the revolution. Under the Law banishing quakers from the colonies and punishing them with death if they returned win. Robinson and Marmaduke Stevenson wern convicted and on the Cote Joii and most probably upon this tree. Mary Dyar who was reprieved through intercessions of her son after her foot was on the fatal ladder Only escaped to meet a similar face the next year. And the lifeless forms of Margaret Jones of Abiu Higgins and perhaps other victims of Juci Giitl murder May have dupe idea from these same limbs do ing the reign of the witchcraft horrors. La july 1676, an Indian who had the distinction of being the first to commit murder in Massau Huset s Colony in the Indian rising of that time was shot to death at the tree by a party of indians under come third of Sagamore the betrayer of a band of sixty Savages. There is record too of a fatal Duel Between two Young gentlemen of the most distinguished Tumill a of the town Over a Young lady s love under its shadows. A Young Phillips ran a Young Wood Bridge through the body with a rapier and afterwards escaped to England. Just before and during the revolutionary struggles it was u place of secret resort Lor the sons of Liberty and it May have purpose of exhibitions of popular feeling and Souna advice from a grandmother.

Lomeii Max the Trees grow so Large that Plank four feet Broad ten feet in length can be Cut from them thes Broad planks Are principally used to make the tops of piano Cortes. When growing in the Forest the Rosewood to.
