Some years ago i attended school at a Academy in one of our new England villages which contained at that time about two Hundred students of both principal of the institution professor Eaton or old Eaton a it we were accustomed to Call him among ourselves although a Young Man was a strict discipline an an and very rigid in his notions. Of propriety. Being a straight Cavin st he was a firm believer in the total depravity of the human race in general and of Young students of both sexes in particular. Consequently he not Only kept a close water up a on our every action himself and by the Aid of his assistant the Ateliers but he deputed several of the students who chanced to possess tha amp a a a Bio disposition often Mot with in All communities which Ieada its possessor to commit All sorts of mean actions in order to Curry favor with a the Powers that be a to play the part of spies upon their Fellows. This was. To them a very congenial occupation and they carried the system of espionage to such an extent that it Becane exceedingly irksome to us and caused is no doubt to do Many deeds of mischief i n order to vex the principal which would never have been thought of had it not been for the opposition we met with in carrying out our for innocent amusement. T among the rules to which Eaton particularly endeavoured to make us conform was that for the keeping of study hours. He required us to remain in our rooms hours during the daytime and from seven of clock in the evening until the hour for retiring and any one who was detected in the of disobedience in this particular was made to feel severely the weight of his displeasure. 2tow there were Many among us who reasoned in this Way if we be main in our rooms Long enough to learn our allotted lessons and have perfect recitations there is no necessity for keeping the regular study hours and if we choose to work a Little harder and do All our studying in the daytime Thorp is no Good reason Why we should not have the evening to ourselves. This May have been a piece of Mere sophistry but to us it was a reasonable argument add. Whenever we could escape the Vigi. Lance of the professor and ins army of spies we bade Farewell to books and lessons and. In vulgar parlance a went in for a Good time it is barely possible that on suck occasions the reaction of Youthful spirits sometimes carried us beyond the Bounds District propriety Ana there were probably some grounds for the numerous complaints made by the Village people to , of depredations upon their property which were the Academy the students there happened to be five or who were oftener detected in transgressing the rules than any of the others not because they were oftener engaged in mischief than then Fellows hut being reckless dare Devil chaps they were not so sly in their movements. So Well convinced was the professor that these Boj s were the most desperate characters in school that he singled them out Foi the special care of his spies and from being repeatedly annoyed by the persecution of the sometimes tyrannical Eaton they Duma length unite in the common cause of revenging themselves on the faculty. The acknowledged Leader of this a company of rowdies a As Tho professor called them was a Young Man by the name of Adams. At the time of which i write he was my room mate and although i often knew of the mischievous plans of him and his party i had at fir amp to taken no Active part in carrying them out. But As in speaking of the boys the professor often counted me As a member of the confederacy and i had frequently Beon accused of things of which i was entirely innocent and reprimanded by him i came at length to regard myself Asad exceedingly in used individual so that it Aid not require much persuasion on the part of Adams to cause to to join them and become As anxious As any Ono to vex and torment eur receptor. On one occasion Adams was de tec Tecl in the very of suspending the Gate which be had taken from the Fence in front of the professors to Uso to a tree in the Back for this offence Eaton compelled him to remain at the. Academy during stud hours for several weeks and to Lodge at his House every night during the time so that he was always As it were under his Eye. This confinement As May Well be imagined was exceedingly disagreeable to Adams and he often declared to me when he metre at meals that find Means to old eaten for this As soon As his time was served ,. A _ i knew him too Well to regard this As an Idle threat and i waited. With impatience to see in what manner he would take revenge. On Tho evening of the Day on which he had been released from the watchful care of his beloved preceptor Adams and i sat in oar rooms yith our pipes in our Mouths talking of the injustice of his Long punishment for so Small an offence suddenly after a Short silence to exclaimed by Jupiter Tom i have it a and in Tho excitements of the discovery whatever it was a knocked a his pipe asked in to my Ope i Virgil Gibich Lay upon the table and then poured . Tents of the in stand upon the Burn ing paper in his commendable Zeal to repair the damage he had done. As soon As 1 could Stop laughing Long enough to speak 1 begged him to explain. A Tom a said he a i have thought of a Pian by which to repay old Eaton for his tyranny and put him to his with Send to find us out in fell a said i a let us have mind now a he replied a you just Fly round and Muster a our crowd Here while i procure the a Nec Esaakiy articles for us to use in the plan and when we Are All assembled a will give you of my designs a a. A few minutes sufficed to bring the boys together and by the time we had got seated and lighted our pipes Adams bad returned. A a boys a said he a Are you ready to help me to cause old Eaton to pass a sleepless night a .ix?8, yes a was the reply from Yojae Quot. A very Well then listen i propose to get into the Belfry of the Academy attach a string to the Clapper of the Bell in some Way. So that it May be instantly detached and then Lead the string into the window of this room which by Tho Way. Looked directly upon Tho Academy the building in which to were standing in close proximity to it and then Yon see. We can toll the Bell All night if we wish a Good Good cried the boys. A yes. Said Adams a Well make the Bell which has so often called us to our studies or to prayers play a different tune and one if 1 mistake not which will be a somewhat discordant one to the ears of our worthy a but How a objected one a can we get into the Belfry you know the doors and windows of the Academy Are always carefully a. A i have thought of that a was his reply. A those men who were at work repairing the roof a few Days ago left a ladder in the Back Yard and with that i have no doubt we can get up on the outside but As it will not do to commenced much before ten of clock we May As Well make ourselves comfortable till then and so saying he produced from the closet a Demijohn of hard cider several glasses a Box of cigars and two packs of cards. With these useful articles we managed to assuage the tedium of the two hours which must pass before we began out grand Enterprise. As soon As our watches told the hour at which the students were required to extinguish their lights and seek the embracing arms of somnus bad arrived Viz half past niger we threw Down our cards and having first reconnoitre a the House in which we were to see if the passage to the outer world was Clear we silently left the House Adams taking with him a bundle enveloped in Brown paper which he had procured while i was collecting the boys. There was no Moon and but few stars visible being concealed by the Drifting Clouds quite dark enough for our purpose. We had no difficulty in finding the ladder and As the lights in most of the houses disappeared we at once proceeded to a aise it. We found a Ojust Jong enough to reach the eaves of the building and As soon As we had planted it securely against the roof and the Gutter Adams began to ascend with his bundle telling some of us to remain on the Gro und. And give timely notice if any one approached. The cupola or Belfry of the Academy was an Octagon building having a window to each of the eight sides closed with a Blind which was made to slide up and Down like a window Sash. It was placed upon the extreme end of the main building and was surmounted by a lightning Rod and two branches on each Side running Down Over the sloping roof of to Academy close to the Edge and thence to the ground. That part of the Rod which ran from the Waves to the Ridge pole had sharpened Points five or inches Long standing up perpendicularly from it at intervals of about two feet and it was by. Means of these Points that Adams commenced crawling up the roof after be had reached the top of the lad Der. He soon arrived safely at the top of the Belfry Bat found that All the blinds he could Roach stuck so fast from being Seldom opened that he a amps unable to raise them. He was soon reinforced by two others of the party a but still the Blind refused to Start. Coming Down to the eaves again he called in a Low voice for More to come up and so anxious and impatient were we to be doing something in the cause that we All obeyed the summons and went up. The Blind soon yielded to our United strength and flew up. It would have been certainly More prudent for one of us at least to have remained on the ground but discretion was a scarce Quality among us and casting an Eye Over the Village which now appeared dark and deserted we entered the Belf Ryiz Here Adams opened his bundle which we found contained two packages of Strong fishing lines some Long screws a screw Driver and a Large handing us Tho lines he requested us to knot them together and then with the Gimlet commenced Boring holes through the trap door leading from the Belfry into the casing beneath a you see my boy a said Adams a that As soon As old Eaton bears the Bell ring be will come or Send some one to the Belfry to put a Stop.,to it and As that would our fun i am just going to fasten Down this he bored a double Row it it of holes All around the Edge of Tho trap and i followed him Wilh the screws driving Thorn Down firmly into the casing beneath so the when we had finished the trap was immovable As if it had always be amp i a part of the solid Bell deck. Next he attached the Lino to the Clapper the Bell by making in the end of it a Large Loop which be slipped overage end of the Clapper. The Loop web my de Large no High to slip off Clear of the clap per should the line be let slack1 but As Long As whoever held the other end of it should keep the line taut it would hold fire iffy. Nothing remained now to be Dine hero but to pull up the Bell rope of rfcs below. This twas accordingly done. Adams coiled it away nicely under the Bell ant we All left the Belfry receiving the line through the slats of the Blind and drawing it Dow after us. Your Success this fax had put us in Thebes Potash old pm tfx it Antt no at of of bks parsed Between us As we a la Way and carefully let ourselves Down by the lightning Rod. Adams was just quoting the line Etc when the Foremost of the party who had arrived at the Edge of the roof gave a whistle which sounded rather like an expression of astonishment than a note of alarm. A whew 1 by Jupiter f he exclaimed a somebody has been Here and taken away our ladder As sure As you live a a a a upon hearing this unexpected and unwelcome intelligence we All crowded As near As possible to the Edge of the roof and strained our eyes tor wards the spot where. We had left the ladder standing against the Gutter but in vain it was gone and we were in a pretty for awhile Sileace reigned upon the roof we were All too much surprised and perplexed to speak but soon were heard complaints and muttered malediction up. On the head or Heads of whoever had played us this trick. A its All up with us for this time a cried Ono. A a yes a growled another a Here is a pretty Kettle of lord 1�?T groaned a third a Here a a Oyhat in be done now a asked an anxious inquirer. A Well boys a replied Adams a that a easier asked than answered. However it wont do any Good to sit Here growling about it so lets return to the Belfry and hold a Council of War. Let us Trust to Luck and our stars for finding a Way to get out of this Serapo. But look boys a he exclaimed if i Agni not greatly mistaken there goes Eaton into Bis front Yard with a ladder and depend a it it was to who took away our ladder. 7 a. And this we afterwards found to have been the Case. It seems that Eaton and Pillsbury. His associate principal. Had been holding a consultation in one of the recitation rooms and As they opened the door to go out. They heard the voices of our party As we were raising the ladder in the Yard. Carefully extinguishing their lantern they crept around the building but As to 1 and taken the precaution to Bolt the Back Gate after us. They could not get into the Vard. And it was too dark for them to see who we Weros from the out Side of the Wall. By the Lime the co id get through the Academy a id into the j Aid by a Back door we Scro All upon the roof and waiting till we got into Tho Belfry they took away the ladder and went Homei Baving they thought securely imprisoned Foi the night yes cont need Adair t must be he. And he thinks be Bas got us in a trap. He is no doubt at this moment chuckling at the idea of our discomfiture in the morning when to gets ready to release is but i fancy to has for this once a reckoned without it is not probable that he has discovered who to Are and i Tell you boys shrewd As he is we will play him a trick Worth two of this before morning. Keep Cool boys and come on we a soon get out of so we re entered the Belfry and comfortably a seating ourselves discussed our position and the Best Means of escape. From it. Various plans were proposed Quot and abandoned As impracticable. One was to unfasten the trap and go Down into Garret or Attio and try to slip Down through the ventilator into Bome of the recitation rooms whence we could make our egress through the windows. This plan was also rejected As being exceedingly difficult of execution if not impossible besides if we escaped in that Way we should. By be a a obliged to leave the trap unfastened and this we were unwilling to do. At length this was proposed to throw the end of the Bell rope out of the window and Blide Down on it to the ground although. A difficult if not a dangerous plan it was accepted with acclamation and immediately put into execution cast off the upper end of the a rope from the wheel and. Tied it to one of the beams of the Franco which supported the Bell. The rope was then coiled up and thrown from the window far enough to fall Clear of a the roof and hang Down thence As we supposed to the ground. A the question then arose who should descend first ? from this a let All rather held Back. While we had been talking in the Belfry the scattered Clouds bad collected and increased until the sky was completely overcast shutting out from us the faint Light of the stars. It was As dark As a wolfs Mouth and it. Was not by any agreeable task to Grope Down an Frota the roof of a three Story milling upon a Loose rope. Bat As time was flying it was agreed that each of us should toss up a handful of coppers and whoever Sho Tild get the la astr number of Heads should be the Pioneer in the descent. As bad Luck would have it the. Jot fell to me and at that moment heartily wishing a myself at Home and Abed i crept out of the window and made my Way entirely by Tho sense of fueling to the Edge of the roof. I Tho rope All right and As my courage was fast oozing a away and would soon be entirely gone i did not hesitate a moment but grasping the rope firmly in my hands i swung off. It swayed the first few feet of my 1 held on and was slowly and. Safely Slid Iivo Down when suddenly my bands pasted a splice in the rope my grasp relaxed and before i could contract my fingers i was descending with the velocity of a Cannon Ball Vln-another., instant my right hand which a passed a the end a the. Rope an rather by instinct than reason. I convulsively gripped the. Rope with my left hand just As it reached the extreme end. For. A Momont i held my weight thus hanging by my. Left hand and a fearful moment it was for in the excitement of my rapid descent i had been unable to calculate How far i had gone and for ought i knew i might at this moment be Twenty feet from the but i had hardly time to think at All before i lost my hold and with an awful yell. I dropped about three inches 1 so tremendous was reaction upon my excited nerves that for a Short time i Lay Flat upon my Back absolutely deprived of speech or motion but i soon revived and was a bin to Calm the fears of my companions who alarmed of my cry were All upon the roof. Luckily no one else heard me and in a few minutes we were All standing safely in the Back Yard of the Academy. As we turned to depart one of the party stumbled upon something which we soon found to be our ladder which had been thrown Down and left where it fell. At this Adams always Quick to think declared it was a most prov identical discovery Ltd for a said he a we can now raise it again and i will go up and pull up the Bell rope so. As to make our escape seem a most mysterious pne to old Eaton. Then we will carry a Way the ladder and hide it and i rather think we shall be Able to control Tho movements of the Bell for considerable time if not longer., accordingly we put the ladder up. And Adams re ascended to the Behiry. He coiled the rope away upon Tho Bell deck and when he rejoined us. He proceeded to make fast to the Fence the Small line which he had by outfit when he Slid Down the Ropo. Four of us then shouldered the Leader and the others going ahead of flowed us through the darkness for nearly a Quarter of a mile when we threw the ladder into an empty ditch in the a most of the swamp and returned to the Academy. Here Adams took the line and paying it out As he went along we escorted him to our boarding House i then went up into my room and opened the window while Adams climbed up into it my Means of an old trellis which covered that Side of the House. Thus the line was safely brought into my chamber font was thought Best for none but Adams and myself to remain in the room to play upon the the Roma Der of the party returned to their rooms. Aft or a sufficient time As we calculated had elapsed for them to reach Home Adams gave a Strong pull upon the line which was answered by a heavy and sonorous Dong 1 which rang loud and Clear through the Midnight air for so much time had been consumed in preparation that it was now nearly twelve of clock. This was followed by another and another peal and As Adams delighted with the Success of his scheme pulled faster and faster the Tonos of the heavy Bell began to reach the ears of the slumbering inhabitants of the Village and from Many a chamber window we could see a Light Shine suddenly Forth the inmates aroused by the in wont of noise. Ding Dong Ding Dong merrily pealed the Brand Boon we saw a a mustering in hot haste of men women and children. Scarce a Quarter of an hour had elapsed since the first stroke of the Bell before half the population of the Village was up and dressed and with Eaton at their head were coming up the Hill which led to the Academy. Lanterns of All shapes Aud their Light upon the crowd while we the prime cause of All this excitement a observing but not observed a surveyed the scene with intense Delight. Probably nothing had so aroused the quiet people of the Village within the memory of the oldest inhabitant a Here Tom a said Adams a relieve m o at the Bell rope while i join a the crowd and show myself to old Eaton who will be sure to suspect me the first thing. Play the tune a the old Eieta died of a and give it to them sus hard As you can. So saying he left me alone and seating myself at the open window i was Able to hear nearly every word which a spoken. By the assembled crowd. But above All others i could distinguish the angry tones of the Precept or a voice. A a there is a gang of rowdies in the Belfry a he said. H saw them go up and took away the ladder so that they were unable to get Down and they Are now revenging themselves be making the night hideous in this manner. But 1 will spoil their fun. Or. Pillsbury a said he addressing his assistant go. Up into the Belfry and order those rascals Down. Take a lantern and Mark Well who they arb before you let them a yes sir a was the answer and i Beard him unlock the front door of the Academe Yifru. As soon As it i saw the Light of his lantern Flash from a window of the attic i commenced ringing As fast As i coked a making a horrible Din which i have no doubt bad the effect to accelerate Bis Progress up the ladder Lead to the Belfry. Just then one of a of Wykom Sny of conspirators came in and offered to relieve Rne at the line .1�accordingly delivered it to him and joined the crowd on the Green. Just is i did so air. Pillsbury returned from his of course unsuccessful attempt to reach the Belfry. A they Are holding the door air a said he a and do not answer me when i Call a the scape races a cried the exas a i a a go up myself and see if they dare refuse to open to me.�?T. A a up to went including Adams and myself. The preceptor mounted the Belfry stairs and rapped upon it with his fist. A boys a he cried a open this trap instantly and come Down in. At this instant the Bell suddenly stopped ringing. A do you hear a he asked after vainly waiting for a reply. Dong Dong Dong i went the Bell. A Stop that i infernal noise y he cried forgetting his dignity in his anger. Again the , and Eaton applied his shoulder to the trap and exerted All his strength to Force it open. A ill break your confounded necks when 1 catch you you miserable scamps a he yelled As the Bell rang out louder and faster and clearer than before As if refreshed by its temporary rest. But As All Bis threats were unavailing As were also the efforts of As Many men As could stand upon the stairs to burst open the door he resolved to try another plan. Stationing Pillsbury upon the Steps to Cut off the Retreat of the party which to supposed to be in the Belfry in that direction he returned to the Green and ordered some one to bring the Long ladder from the Back Yard. But it was not there and in a voice of Thunder he commissioned a dozen or More of the students to search in every direction until they found it or to me other ladder Long enough to reach the roof. In the meantime the Bell kept ringing. Now faster now slower rattling away like a fire Bell at one moment and again tolling solemnly at Long intervals. As for a funeral while professor Eaton strode Back and Forth a aft pin the Greeff Mut inn it threats of vengeance Tipon the Heads of the Lawless India Idun is who were thus depriving him of his nights rest. During Titis time the conspirators had taken turns at the Bell line in such a manner that every one of us had been seen by the professor among the crowd apparently perfectly innocent of any knowledge of the parties concerned in the tumult. In fact we had taken Especial care to make ourselves conspicuous so that upon a might fall it would certainly not be Uyon us. When after an hour s search 6 ladder was found and brought to the Academy it was instantly raised and another with Hooks upon the end which had been previously brought was Laid along the roof and hooked Over the Ridge pole. No sooner were these arranged than Eaton boiling Over with rage and impatience sprang up the ladder accompanied by one of the students with a lantern. At this time the Bell was ringing furiously with Adams officiating at the string. He Souid see the two figures climbing up the roof by the Light of their lantern and just As eat ii reached the Beltry and was in the of raising the Blind Adams Ali Lowed the string to Slack the Loop slipped from the Dapper the Bell suddenly stopped ringing the line was suddenly hauled into the chamber and Adams came Down and joined the wondering crowd upon the Green. A what do you mean by this conduct you Young reprobates v exclaimed Eaton As he shoved up the Belfry blinds and a joked Bis head in. A answer me a he cried. But at this moment his Follower had reached the top with his Jan Ern and As he cast its Light full into the open window Eaton nearly fell backward paralysed with astonishment at finding the Belfry empty. There stood the Bell which had caused so much confusion the Clapper was even yet vibrating but the rogues who had made it ring were gone words cannot describe the rage of the professor. First convincing himself that no one was concealed upon the roof he descended shouting to the students assembled below a what devils trick is this that you have been playing boys 7 some of you have done this 4 know very we i but be assured i we a move heaven and Earth to discover the guilty parties and bring them to punishment.

Alliance with the negro. Speech of Hon. Charles j. Biddle of Pennsyl Vania delivered is. The House of represen1 natives of the United states Hatch 6,1888. The House being in committee of the whole on the state of the Union or. Biddle addressed the committee a follows or. Cha ii want a thank Yon for giving me the door. I would not willingly let pass the sentiments which have just been uttered by my cot league or. Morris Davie without opposing to them sentiments which Are i believe Moree amp a to Teristi of the cons Ergative people whom he and i have the Honor in part to represent upon this floor. As a citizen of the Border state of �end8jlrs� no a the views in which i have been bred in re or Titan to the institution of slavery have been temperate and a hot be just. It has not been to me an exciting subject As it is to Many with whom l am associated in this House for to some gentlemen very Calm in their judgment on All other matters the Mere word a a slavery seems to have much the effect that a red rag has on a Bull. I have never been Blind to the disadvantages and evils of slavery i have not been indifferent to their alleviation by practical Means yet i have Ever regarded the intemperate und aggressive policy of the political antislavery party to be As sterile of Benefit to the negro at it has been disastrous to the peace the Prosperity and Unity of our country. This War has brought is at last to see that there is a broader question than the a slavery question. Quot though its commonly preferred to narrow the discussion Eduwu to that. But now the a Yuer is norms to us we find that there is a a negro question vast and Complex and embarrassing a vac if slavery were blotted oat of existence. From the earliest times Pennsylvania has had her Node of treating these questions. Originally a Siave holding state she adopted in 1780, the policy of gradual emancipation extending it however Only to the future born children of the slaves then living these children were to receive their Freedom at the age of Twenty eight years. This great measure was the product of Universal Public sentiment and was perfectly consist eat with the general interest to effect it no pressure no compulsion from without was directed against oter people. Had there been from what i know of their temper i should judge that slavery would have existed among us to this it was the last slaves died out within the recollection of the youngest Man upon this floor. By our common Law however the negro had never been a citizen so our highest court decided and when the pm int was controverted the people settled it definitely by amending the Constitution so that to be a a a White Man is one of the necessary constitutional qualification of the a on our statute Book at this very Day a our state fugitive slave Law far older than the Lotf of Congress on that subject nay older even than the clause in the Constitution of the United states providing for the return of fugitives. You perceive ii that Pennsylvania could have Little excuse for joining in the insurrections against the fugitive slave Law or against the judgment of the supreme court of the United states denying citizenship to the negro since we have ourselves furnished the precedents for both the statute and the decision. In our Hgt to indignation against to present vast rebellion let As not entirely forget that in too Many of the Northern states a Chronie rebellion against distasteful constitutional obligations Baa existed for Many years. In Pennsylvania our distinctive school of abolition has been marked by the mild Benevolence of our venerable society of friends whose Christian Charity embraced both the master and the slave let it not for one moment be confounded win a the Cut Thron philanthropy whose emblems Sre the Torch and the Pike which has canonised John Brown As a unit of the Church. An eminent member Oft he dominant party hat promulgated Bis scheme for carrying on this War. He in Many essays and speeches to Une of which parliamentary usage permits me to refer since it was not made in his place itt the he would not it seems Trust to the Valur of our armies and the skill of our generals.

Sumner asks this question a can we afford to r eject this natural Alliance inspired by a common interest and consecrated by humanity a a Noble lord once urged in he British parliament the employment of the indians against the British colonists in America.

A a that god and nature pit into on Bat Ida i know not what ideas of god and Satura that Noble lord May entertain but 1 know that such detestable principles Are equally abhorrent to religion and humanity.
