Mr. lloar'a Eulogy on Ikv Isite Secre
tary Stanton.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18,1870.
Hon. E. E. Hoar, Attorney General.
Snt I was not present in court yes
terday to hear your remarks on Mr.
Stanton, but to-day I was shown a
newspaper report of them, which I
presume to be perfectly accurate. The
following' paragraph has struck me
with surprise:
"But it is not of the lawyer, eminent
as he w as in the science and practice of
the law, that men chiefly think as they
remember him. His service to man
kind was on a liigner and wider field.
He was appointed Attorney General by
Mr. Buchanan on the 2u; h of December
lMili. in one ol the darkest hours of (he
country's history, when the Union
seemed crumbling to pieces, without
an arm raised for its support; when
without the public councils was doubt
ing, and within were fears; when fee
bleness and treachery were uniting to
yield whatever defiant rebellion might
demand and good men everywhere
were ready to despair of the republic.
For ten weeks of that w inter of na
tional agony and shame, with patriot
ism that never wavered and courage
that never quailed, this true American,
happily, no! alone, stood manfully at
his post, "between the living and the
dead," gave what nerve ho could to
timid and trembling imbecility and
met the secret plotters of their coun
try's ruin with an undaunted front un
til liefore t hat resolute presence the de
mons of ir-ason and civil discord ap
peared in their own shape, as at the
touch of Itliuriel's spear, and fled bai
fled and ho vlingaway."
This statement was carefully and de
liberately written down before you de
livered it. You spoke for the American
bar as itA organ and head, and
you addressed the highest tribunal in
the world, knowing that your words
were to go upon its records and there
remain forever. I take it for granted,
under these circumstances, that no
earthly temptation could make you de
flect a hair's breadth from the facts as
you understand and believe thein.—
The inevitable conclusion is that you
must have in your possession, or with
in your reach, some evidence which
convinces you that what you said is
the truth. lam sure you will excuse
me for a-kiug you to say what thai
evidence is. The paper I have trans- ;
cribed from your address sounds like I
the authorative summary of a liistori- i
an, as lie closes the most interesting ;
chapter of iiis book. You can liardiy j
consider tiie curiosity impertinent •
that prompts an American citizen to
inquire what your judgment is found
e l upon. Besides, I have some friends
wlmse reputation is deeply involved
in the affairs you pronounce upon with
so much confidence. Moreover, 1 have
a personal concern in your remarks, for
lam one of Mr. Stanton's colleagues
ana am as liable as any one of them to
be *aken on your statement for one of
the "secret plotters of their country's
ruin." Be pleased, there ore, tu give
me the in formation I seek.
Do you find on the records of your
i fiioe any thing u hicli shows that Mr.
Sianlon was in violent or dangerous
conflict with "demons of treason and
civil discord ?" or any other descrip
tion of demons?" Did Mr. Stanton
himself ever lay claim to the heroic
character you ascribe to bim or declare
that he had performed those prodigi
ous feats of courage while he was in
Mr. Buchanan's cabinet. Has any
other person who was in a condition to
know the facts ever given you that
version of them which you repeated to
the court? If yes, who are the wit
nessess? what particular danger was
he exposed to which tested his valor,
and made his "undaunted front" a
thing so wonderful in the description
of it? Whose "feebleness and treach
ery was it that united to yield whatev
er defiant rebellion might demand?"
and how did Mr. Stanton's courage dis
solve the combination or defeat its pur
p< isse ?
You say that for ten weeks "hestood
manfully at bis post, between the liv
ing and the d< ad " Now when the
first jaw officer of the United Siates ad
dressed the Supreme Court on u spe*
cial ntnnsion, and after elaborate pre
paration, he is presumed to mean
something hy what he says. How is
this to be understood ? You certainly
did not intend to assert merely that
he stuck to his commission as long as
he could, and gave it up only when he
could not help it. Standing manfully
at a post of any kind, and especially
when the stand is made "between the
living and the dead," has, doubtless, a
deep significance, if one could hut man
age to find out what it is. Who were
the dead and who were the living?
and how did it happen that Mr. Stan-'
to got between them? What business
had he between them, and why did he
stay there for ten weeks? These ques
tions you can easily answer, and the
answer is needed; for in the meantime,
conjectural interpretations are very va
rious and some of them injurious to
the dead and living aforesaid, as well
as to Mr. Stanton, who according to
your representation, stood between
I can comprehend the well worn sim
ile of IthuriePs spear, but I do not
see what on earth was the use of it un-
I ss you thought it ornamental and orig
inal, for you make Mr. Stanton, by his
mere presence, and without a spear, do
what Ithuriel himself could not do
with the aid of that poweful instru
ment. The angel with the spear com
pelled a demon to lay aside his dis
guise, while a mortal ijfan dealt with
many demons, and not only made
them all appear in their proper shape,
but drove Lbem "baffled and howling
away" out of his "resolute presence."
I do not object to this btn-ause the fig
ures are mixed or because it is an ex
trvagant outrage on good taste. The
j custom of the times allow men who
make eulogies on their political
friends to tear their rhetoric into rags,
and if you like the tatters you are wel
come to flaunt them. But I call your
attention to it in the hope that you
will talk like a man of the world, and
give us in plain, or at least intelligible,
prose, a particular account of the very
important transactions to which you
refer, together with the attendant cir
cumstances. I suppose you have no
thought of being taken literally. Your
description of Mr. Stanton conjuring
demons is only a metaphorical way
yon have of saying that he frightened
certain bail man. I beg you to tell
mo who they were and how he scared
1 repeat you are not charged, and
in my opinion could not he jus'ly
charged with the great sin of fabrica
ting statements like these. You have,
no doubt, seen or heard what you re
gard as sufficient proof of them. What
I fear is, that you have been misled by
the false accounts which partisan wri
ters have invented, not to honor Mr.
Stanton but to slander others.
If you had known the truth concern
ing his conduct while he was Attorney
General, and told it simply, you might
have done great honor to his memory.
He was at that time a regular built, old
fa hioned democratic union saver. He

lii olden times, says' a Frenchman,
who with llie usual assurance of his
countrymen, pretends to know some
thing about woman, female beauty
was so fascinating that it was a certain
means of securing a husband. Now
adays, he adds, men have reflected up
on the subject and it is seldom that a
girl is married for her personal attrac
tions, whatever they may be; so she
runs a risk of always keeping her hon
orbie title of maid, if her parents aie
not rich enough to pay a handsome sum
to some gallant or other to change it
into that of wife.
It is an accident, or in fact a sort of
prodigy when a man marries a woman
solely lor her beauty, a quality which
has singularly fallen in value in our
mercenary days. If it ever should
take a rise, it might be well to adopt
the Persian mode of reducing the num
ber of old maids, This consisted in sel
ling ihe beautiful girls to those who
were willing to buy them, and giving
the amount to the ugly; so that the
handsomest endowed the ugliest ; the
second in beauty, the second in ugli
ness. et cetera.
But this plan would be, we fear, In
applicable in our days; for there
would be but few bidders for the beau
tiful women, and the ugly, ifthenmn
ey was to go with them, would he the
only ones to find takers. Seriously,
continues the Frenchman who it must
be borne in mind, is speaking in France
and not in the United States, marriage
is tending to disappear frotn our social
habits. The number of old maids, es
pecially of the middle class, is increas
ing daily.
A laborer or mechanic has no diffi
culty in getting married, for his wife
takes her share of the work. In such
cases matrimony is a joint stock asso
ciation. The working man spends leas
wheu marled than single. His clot his
being made and kept in repair at home,
and the more wholesome and less ex
pensive nourishment more than com
pensates for any additional expense of
having another person to provide for.

Among the rich especially where
the women brings a handsome dowry,
marriage is also possible; but in the

All kinds of equality have been tried
at various times, but oue only has
been retained, and that the most dan-
gorous and most fatal of all-—the equal
ity of expense.
Every girl is brought up with the idea
thatshe will draw in the lottery of mar
riage a first prize. It is imagined that
style and accomplishments will make
up for aw ant of fortune. It is a mis
take; they will only make it more ne
cessary ; in fact, absolutely indispeusi
Marriage is the greatest luxury a
man can indulge in. When we reflect
that all ihe women of the middle class
are nowadays brought up to shine in
society, that there ate no longer any
maiked distinctions as far as expense
is concerned, and that the standard of
necessary living is fixed according to
tliatot tho richest, a man must be in
deed greatly in love if he does not hes
itate before the "mountain of velvt ,
siJk, and jewelry tiiat he must consun e
all bis days in accomplishing, in ord< r
tint, his wife may be properly die-.
For men of this class, woman is not
a companion, to take a share in propor
tion to her strength of the common
cares and labors of l ife, but an idol that
he must pass his days in adorning ba
the admiration of others. A poor man
who marries such a woman without
dowry would be capable of buying a
a horse which had to be fed upon topa
zes and emeralds instead of oats. So it
is now rare to find a husband of the
kind, and soon it will be impossible.

draft may be too high or too low; —the
one will draw too heavy on the top of
the neck, the other will choke the ani

too small—either of which will cause
sore shoulders. A tender-mouthed
horse should have a large, smooth bit,
and not to be reined up too tight, or
tne mouth will become so sore as to
