It May be because they witness so much suffering and distress that they become accustomed it were to scenes from which at first Thuiy turned Avay unable to witness. A few years ago happened to be in the company of a number of students from one of whom heard the following Story it was on a cold Christmas morning in the year a medical student who i will Call Rush rudder was proceeding on his Way to meet some fellow students in the Beautiful Little Village of Richmond where forgetting books and studies they had intended to spend the anniversary of the Day which brought peace and Good will to men. As he was passing through one of those narrow streets Jip the Northern part of the City he met a banal girl weeping As if her heart would the crowd passed on without noticing her but when lie poor Stu Dent saw her his heart was touched and he could not pass without inquiring the cause of Ler grief.

When he was cond Tel to Napoleon the lat Ter said in a familiar tone what 13 the my lad that you beat your wife she is a Young and pretty woman and a better wife than you Are a husband. Such conduct in disgraceful in a French Bah general if women Are lobe believed they Are never in the wrong. I have forbidden my wife to talk to any Man whatever and yet in spite of my commands i find her constantly gossip pm with one or other of my now there is your mistake. You want to prevent a woman from might As Well try to turn the course of the Danube. Take my advice do not be jealous. Let your wife gossip and be merry. If she were doing wrong it a Likely would be sad instead of Gay. Your comrades Are not absolutely capuchins but i am much mistaken if they will not respect another Man s wife. I desire that you do not strike your wife again and if my order not obeyed the emperor shall hear of it. Suppose his majesty were to give you a reprimand what would you say Mafoi general my wife is mine and i May beat her if a choose. I should say to the emperor sire you look enemy and leave me to manage my Napoleon laughed and said my Good Fel Low you Are now speaking to the the word produced its usual magical effect. The Grenadier look confused held head lowered voice and said of sire that quite alters the Case. Since your majesty commands i of course that s right. I hear an excellent Chard Ter of your wife. Everybody Speaks Well of her. She braved my displeasure rather than expose you to punishment. Reward her by kind treatment.

With that you May buy a Sutler s caravan which will enable your wife to carry on a profitable business. Your Sonia a Fine boy and at tone future time he shall be provided for. But mind never let me hear of your beating your wife again. If i do you shall j find that i can Deal hard blows As Well As a sire i can never be sufficiently grate Ful for kindness two or three years after the circumstance the emperor was with the army a another but it nourishment. Ever and anon could be heard the passers by Clad in and veil protected from the keen blasts of boreas As they joined in the merry making of that festive the sick woman would sigh As their merry laugh fell her ears it May be her. Mind reverted to her Hap pier Days. Such thoughts will often steal upon the distressed however much they guard them selves against them. I will get you some Medicine which i Hope will do you said the student. No Mailer about knowing full Well what she was about to say. No matter you can pay me when you get Money enough to and without waiting to hear any objections on her part he wished her a Good Day promising go Call soon again. So much time had elapsed while the student was thus engaged that it was too late for him to meet his friends As at starting in the morning he had intended. Every morning a Supply of food and Medicine was sent to the poor woman who under proper nourishment rapidly improved until convalescent and every Day did the student wend his Way to his patient to inquire How she did. The commencement of the University took place and Rush rudder received his diploma with Honor. Time rolled in and mr., now Rush rudder m. D., was attending to theadous duties of his profession in Hig native City cinch anecdote of or. Wilberforce about five and forty years ago when on one sentence of a speech in English hous of commons was Given on. An average Ever five or six minutes and when the reporters a to sit for Many hours at a were often at a loss to know what to do with., them selves. On i me occasion when Labouring nude an attack of ennui and also under effects o Poteet Jack Finarty a Well known reporte of that period yawned out or. Speaker Wil you favor us with a a Roar of laughter followed from All parts of the House. One o the officers immediately repaired to the Gallary and enquired who the offender was. Jack Fin Narty without opening his Mouth pointed to a Quaker of very diminutive stature who. Was sitting in the front seat. The officer immediately seized tha Uno fending Little Man by the breast of his collarless coat and without con descending to give a Why or wherefore drag red him Down stairs and transferred him to the tire of the sergeant at arms. The latter after Lee pm him in Safe custody during the night him to pay nearly thirty us lodgings set him at Liberty on the following a. 1 about the same time the debate which was bout English labourers being one even unusual y Dull. Jack Finarty who had but a Short me before been imported from tipperary said o the Only other reporter in the gallery at the me that he Felt very drowsy and that a would be after taking a Nap if he would Tell he awoke anything which might take place. The other agreed and Jack in a moment was fast locked in the Arm of morpheus. An hour elapsed and after half a dozen yawns Jack opened his eyes. Euis anything was his first question to Hia Friend. To be sure there said the other whose name was Morgan o Sullivan. Has there by the exclaimed Jack pricking up his ears in the plenitude of his anxiety to learn what it was. Yes Jack very important then and Why Don t you be after telling it to me at once what was it Abi iut i about the virtue of the Irish potato was it the Irish potato you said Morgan the Irish potato and a most eloquent w., sch it Thunder and lightning then and Why Don t observed Jack on finishing his notes. That s Rale philosophy. And the other Mim Bers cried hear did they i i the other members cried hear answered Morgan. In a Quarter of an hour aft. Award the House Rose. Morgan went directly to the office of the paper for which he was employed while Jack in perfect East acids at the eulogist which had been the Virtues of the potatoes of quid ran in breathless haste to the Public House where fhe reporters who should have been on duty for the other morning papers were assembled. He read Over his notes to them which they copied verbatim and not being at the time in the Best possible condition for judging of the probability of or. Wilberforce delivering such a speech they repaired to their respective offices and actually gav6 a copy of into the hands of the Printer. Next morning t appeared in All ivs morning he one with which Morgan o Sulvan was connected. The sensation and Surprise it Crea Edih town . Had it Only appeared in one or two of the papers persons of Dmary intelligence must at once have con lured that there was some mis Talie about the matter. But its appearing in All the journals except one arid that one so very obscure that scarcely anybody knew whether the speech was n it or As it people to the conclusion that it mu5t have Beetrix actually spoken. The inference was Plain everybody while regretting that the necessity should exist a that no other course was left but to put or. Wilberforce at once into a straight jacket and provide him with a keeper. In the evening he House met As usual i and or. Wilberforce n the speaker taking the chair Rose and begged e indulgence of the Holise for one moment to a matter which Concerne i it As Well As himself you Tell it ill rend it from my note Book Jack and you la take it Down As i go said Morgan. It it s Myfelt sure that s ready at any time to write what any member says about our Are you ready to begin 1" quite Slid Jack with an Energy personally. Every Haj Morable he observed has doubtless read the speech which 1 am represented As having made a previous night. With the perms non of the House i i read Here the honorable member read the speech amidst defining r of laughter can assure honorable members that no one Coul have read this speech with More Surprise thai i myself did this morning when i found the paper on my breakfast table. For myself personally i care but Little about it though if were capable of uttering such nonsense As i Here put into my Mouth it is High time that in Stead of being a member of this House i Wen a inmate of some Lunatic Asylum. It is of the dignity of this House that i feel concerned for if honorable members were capable of listen ing to such nonsense supposing me capable o giving expression to in it were much More a prop ate to Call this a theatre for the perform Ance of farces Tymn a place for the legislative deliberation is of representatives of the nation. It was proposed by some members to Call the printers of the different papers in which the speech appeared to the bar of the House to which strangely contrasted with the previous answer for of privilege but the now then Morgan languor of his manner my Morgan affecting to read from his note Booi commenced thus the honorable Mii ube said that och be Aisy a Little interrupted Jack who was the honorable Mim Berv Morgan hesitating for a was his name you asked sure it was or. Wilber or. Wilberforce och very Well then. Morgan resumed. Or. Wilberforce said that it always appeared to him beyond All ques lion that the great cause Why the Irish labor ers were As a so much stronger and Capa ble of enduring so much greater fatigue tha mat Nall when one Fine morning several years after the enffll8ll was the surpassing Virtues of the he had left the University a splendid coach drop up to his door and a Beautiful female in Tereul his office. The Young physician lifted his from the books he had been Reading am de he had seen that face before but when a or where he knew not. Eyes Fane or be have come sir said she to pay you for med Cine received from you Long Long when did you receive the asked the doctor in a business manner but it was a counterfeit on a cold Christmas morning in the year you met a poor girl crying in the City of Campaign. Napoleon you know had a wonderful Power of recollecting the countenances of persons whom he had once been. On one of his marches he met and recognised the Vivan Diero and her Eon. Her saying he immediately Rode up to Philadelphia you spoke kindly to her followed her to her sick Mother and purchased food and Medicine until she recovered. That poor sick woman was the Only daughter of a wealthy gentleman but marrying contrary to her father s he banished her from Hia House. Her bus bind soon died and she was forced to support herself and child by her Needle but unused to labor Days and nights of toil were too much for her and she Sank beneath the task and had it not been for you she must have died and her daughter been exposed to the charities of a cold heartless world Yea to All the temptations to which helpless females Are subject in our Large cities. Her father died shortly after her recovery without a will consequently she fell heir to All his vast estate. Kind sir that woman was my Mother and i am the Little girl you spoke so kindly the rest of my Story is soon told. They were married or. Rudder and the wealthy heiress. And if you Ever visit the City of Cincinnati you May see the Beautiful House where Rush Rud Der has retired from practice still he pursues the study of his favorite science and much Ore indebted to him for his Field of medicines. Researches in the potato. And he Morgan my dear fellow shouted the mention of the Irish potato. Morgan my dear fellow this is so important that mus give it in the first do you think sofj1 said Morgan. Troth and i answered Jack. Very answered the other. Morgan " and i have no continued or that had ii been my lot to be born and reared in did the number Eay interrupted Jack exulting by evidently associating the word with the growth of potatoes in his own blessed he said observed the other who then resumed had it been my lot to be born and reared in Ireland where my food would have principally consisted of the most nutritious and salubrious of being the poor infirm shrivelled and stunted creature you sir and honorable gentlemen now behold would have Bejjan a tall Stout athletic Man and Able to carry an enormous Here Finnart observed looking his Friend eagerly in the Faith Morgan and that is what i Call True eloquence go l i hold that Root to be invaluable and the Man who first cultivated it in Ireland i regard As a Benefactor of the first magnitude to Bis Spe cies. And my decided opinion is that never till grow potatoes in England in sufficient qixian cities to feed All our labourers will those labourers be so Able bodied a class a the Irish hear hear from both sides of the Well by St. Patrick but that Bates every Ter was allowed to drop.

He was wretchedly poor and they also discovered that he had no spurs Why said they your Bill has no nol the first Eaid he but he s worse than a wild cat when he scratches or bites to go three Noble looking game chickens were now brought in and the betting commenced. Everything offered by Captain or his friends was eagerly taken up by the dons.
