OR, THE SECRET ASSOCIATION.
Tho year 183 will long bo rouiem
berod In Now Orleans for tho violence
of tho yellow fover. Hundreds died
dally, and tho sounds of walling ana
thotiroans of tho dying took' tho plaeo
of tho light' laugh and Joyous voices that
wero wont to bo'hoird In tho streets of
this gny city. Tho epidemic had been
raging for three weeks with unmitiga
ted fury, mowing down allko native
and stranger, the high and tho low, the
good'nnd tho evil. Tho living at length
were wearied wllliiiurdlng.orfroin habit
became, insensible to tho calls of distress.
Many died unalteiuled.nnd thelrbodles
wero taken from tho' liouso by a man
with a cart, and hauled to tho grave
yard and thrown into n ditch prepared
for their reception. No relative, no
friend no follower to tho tomb I Death,
terror and desolation relgnod. Tho hos
pitals could receive? no iribro", and tho
Sisters of Charity ryid benevolent Ro
man priests, though'constantly engaged
in administering to tho suffering at tho
risk of life, could' meet but a' small
portion of tho demands 'suffering hu
manitv made unon Ihetr charity. The
theatres and masqueraded, as usual at
tliis season, wero closed, and instead
the cathedral was thronged and Its
iloor was crowded from morning till
midnight with kneeling suppliants for
hwtven's mercy. Tho rich, and all who
had tho ability, had lied or wero flying
dally, and of thoso who remained, all
wero too much lost in their own fears
or griefs to regard thoso of others.
In such a condition of tilings it ii not
surprising that many, even In respecta
ble positions In society, slioukl perisii
unattended, uncarcd for ! Many a luxu
rious mansion whoso last occupant ex
pired attended only by a faithful ser
vant, or perhaps a passing stranger, was
locked and sealed by tho city magis

of means wholo families miserably per
It was about threj In tho afternoon of
a duy that had .been most fatal to thu
victims of the epidemic, when a gen
tleman, about twenty-eight or thirty-
years of age, stepped from the verandah
of a handsome Crcolo houso in tho Low
er Faubourg. Ho stood still a moment,
then raised his clasped hands tollea veil,
and said fervently and bitterly
"Oh, Oodl how long shall thy terri
ble scourgo afflict man? Death and
not Life reign I Spare, oh spare 1"
At tills moment an African servant
appeared crossing tho deserted streets.
On seeing tho oxp'resslbn of tho ge'ntio-
man's face, ho asked
"Is mossa dead ?"
"Yes, go and scot hat hois shrouded
and I will send a coilln."
At this moment a wiigon turned tho
cornor of tho ndjoining street, half filled
with coffins. Tho driver asked if a cof
fin' was wanted and tho black paid for
ono and took it into tho houso.
"Farewell, noblo Vinton," said ho.ns
ho clauccd through tho open windows
of the verandah upon tho dead body of
a young man lying uponasofa. "When
tho sun roso you wero buoyant with
health and hope. Eroitscts you will
bo In your grave ! I, too, must tako
warning.! My head nclies, and1 walk:
ing and want of siecn' havo mado mo
fuvcrlsh. I havo dono my duty in at
tending Vinton, and will now seek my
home, for Mary will bo anxious about
me, as yeli she may boj for who goes
out at morn may never seo tlio noon,"
Tho speaker wan Lewis Foster I l- ivo
yoars havo clapspd siuco tho ovents ro'
corded in tho preceding chapters. Du
ring tlio interval uo had married a lovo'
ly girl, iTanies Layton's sister, ailil re
moved his business to Now Orleans,
wliero ho, had lived ithreo years. Tlio,

North to obtain goods, when ho, was do
tiuned by his wife's Illness, It was.Au
gust beforo sho was well enough to trav
el, When, its tho soason was so far at!
vaneed, ho resolved to remain through
it. Shortly afterwards tho yellow fover
lirnko out and enlisted all lila feelings
and sympathies for hU family and

raging; .oj.Idemlc. Ho. remained, and,
llko his brother,, devoted himself to tho
care of. the sick,
Lewis Foster took his way homo
through tho solltury streets nt a slow
pace. The air was still, and hs difllcult
to breatlio as if coming frdui tho mouth
of a furnaco. Not a cloud was ln tho
hazy looking sky, and tho dust of tho
ground was so pulverized by tlio drought
astoiloat for hours after It was dis
turbed, making It still more difllcult to
breathe. As ho went along groans of
tho dying, of shrieks of tho living over
tho just dead, alono met his wtrs ; save,
at Intervals, tho volco of prayer. Tho
lcad-cartoccaslonally broko the stillness
as It rumbled along slowly ,over and an

as her husband suddenly grew palo and
sank Into a chair, powerless.
Sho spoke to him, but ho did not re

suspicion of tho pool wife! Sho gazed
upon her husband a moment as If to its
siiro iicrsciror tlio liornuio trum, una
leti tho air rang with her shrieks for

ears, but produced no effect. It was
heard with Indifferenco, and often re'
echoed by tho dying, with Insano wild'
ness. Sho ceased her shrieks and ad'
ministered to him whatever was at

groans of Hgony. At length sho Iookod

njid his couutcnanco betrayed tho fatal

"Mary," hosnld faintly, 'I havo como

Tho cup of tlio poor wife was full.
Sho kissed him "and bade him live for

toward Lewis bado her with Ills eyes
to look only on him. How dear to her
wero both. Which could sho least re
gard? Whleli could sho resign ?
But wo will not dwell upon u scene bo
full of pain. After cndurlngslx hours of
suffering, Lewis U'oster breathed his
last lu tho arms of his wife, who tlio
next moment fell insensible upon his
body. An hour afterwards sho was
aroused by the dead carrier, who camo
to remove ihodend body; for tho red
cross had been mado upon tho door by
an officer who hud Just before passed in
Ids rounds. Sho roso up nud gazed upon
itjns if in n dream. Sho stood silently
in a stupor of horror and saw tho men
bear him forth, and tlicn, forgetful that
her brother lay dying In the sumo room,
forgetful of her children, sho followed
nnd threw herself upon the. corpse. By
main forco tho mou removed her, and
then drove on. Sho stood llk6 a statue
till tiiocnrt was out of sight, when tho
sound of her infant's volco within -tlio
houso recalled tho mother to herself.
Sho clasped her hands lu silent anguish
and sought her fatherless children.
James lying on tlio floor iu he agonies
of death, first met her sight. Sho flew
to him, and lie soon breathed his lust
upon her arm.
Again tho dead cart camo; and the
body of her brother was boriio from her
sight. Sho sat upon, thp floor and moved
not nor scarcely breathed as tho men
went tramping but. Sho had her two
children firmly clasped to horbreost,as
If sho feared they would return and
deprive her of them.
From this day tho plaguo abated,

A SKETCH OF HIS EARLY LIFE.
iVsa I'ncker, tho Democratic nomineo
ror Governor or Pennsylvania, was born
iu tho township or Grotuu, Now Lon
don county, Connecticut, In tho begin
ning oftliQ year 1800. Although Asa
Flicker had enjoyed very limited oppor
tunities of education, tlicbo had enabled
hm (o muster tho rudiments of knowl
edge, nnd ho made every offort to Im
prqVo his mind and increase his storo
of information. By diligence, faith
fulness nud good tcuiperLtlio first Indi
cations of a manly charactcr.ho won thu
confidence, and ultimately tho affection
of, his employer. Despite his youth ho
came to bo regarded by the tanner as n
confidential friend nnd ndvhcr, and, if
dcatli had not interposed nnd broken
tho connection, Asa Packer would pro
bably havo becomo a partner In tho es
tablishment, and ended his life as a
tapner. During Mr, Smith's M illness
Afii was his trusted manager, and, after
tho 1 tours or business, his sympathizing
frend and companion.
After tho death r Mr. Smith, Asa en-
traued himself ton farmer by tlio name
of John Brown, This farmer was a man
on strong character and, still stronger
convictions. Ho was a Democrat or tho
scjiool of Thqinas, Jefferson. From this
farmer Asa Packer gof tho bios which

seventeen, with a knnrftck, which con
tained Ms; whole wardrobo, rintlalrdw
dollars In His purse, Asa Packer sot out
cm foot for Susquehanna county, Penn
sylvania. Arriving at (ho town of
Brooklyn, ho apprenticed himself to
tlio trade or carpenter and Joiner.
Altdr serving his time as an apprcn-
ilco, and becoming tho master or tits
iudncst, ho continued to work at it as
siduously for several years, when ho In
vested his savings In a lot of wild land
n the upper waters of tho Susquehanna,
and entered upon the hard but froo und
adventurous 111b or tho pioneer. Ho
mado a clearing, and reared with his
own hands tho cabin to which ho soon
attcr brought a brldo. Tho lady wliom
he selected to bo tho mistress of his
iono was a daughter of Zophcr Blaks
ice, a name that will bo recognized even
how by many in Northern Pennsyl
vania. Bho proved n Worthy wlfo to
Asa Packer in his early struggles. Whllo
ho was about his work iu tho fields, or
striking sturdy blows in' tho forest
which hemmed in ids homestead on
every side, Mrs. Packer was equally
hard at work attending to'the domestic
affairs of tho house-hold.
Her nlmblo fineers. with tho aid of
tho spinning-wheel, mado all tho gar

first ten years of their married life.
There was norlispulo abouttho authori

propriate work close at hand, nnd was
content with doing it, and with reclpro
eating sympathy and counsel.
In the valley of tho Lehigh, Joslah
White and Ersklne Hazard, reprcsenta
tlvcs of associated capital of l'hiladel
phia, had projected and executed Im
provemeuts which made, tho wonderful
riches of this section Us coal, iron, tim
ber, lime, cement nnd slate partially
available. Hither came Asa Packer, a
ioor artlsin, to labor with his hands.
;o mix with a crowd of men similarly
employed and undistinguished. What

throng of which he then was but t
Here was a field for tho highest In
telligcnconud the most untiring energy
Accordingly, in tho spring of 1833, when
ho was 27 years of age, Asa Packer left
ids farm in Susquehanna county, and
permanently settled himself in tho Le
high valley. Ills advent Into a region
in which ho was destined to accomplish
so much made no stir. He brought' to
the new field but a few huudred dol
lurs. Ills capital lay in his actlvo ualnd
stout heart and Btrong arms, and In In
dustrlous and thrifty 'habits. His first'
and second summers wore employed In
boating coal from Mauch Chunk- to'
Philadelphia', in which he acted master"
of his own boat.
About this tlmo Mr. Packer made
visit to his relations at Mystic. To ids'
brother, Robert Packer, and his uncle,
Daniel Packer,'lio gave such an account
of tho advantages of thocoal regIon,'that
they wero Induced to accompany iilra
on hls'relurn. They visited In compa

Opening for business. Daniel Packer
was so struck with tho magnitudo of
tho opportunity that ho declared that

business, and selling all his property In
Connecticut and coming to tho Lehigh
Valley. Hondvlsed tho brothers to unite
their means nnd ongago In business at
Mauch Chunk, offering to assist them
with money and credit, and to stand
behind them in every emergency. Tills
ndvlco exactly accorded with tho views
of Asa Packer, nnd the two brothers
immedlntoly engaged n business in
general merchandise lu Mauch Chunk,
under tho firm or A. 4 R. W. Packer,
wltli a capital or $5,000. Tho most or
tills money had been taved by Astt
Packer from the hard earnings, or for
The new houso entered, from the mo
ment or opening, upon an extended nnd
protitnhlo buslucss. .It soon became
known by its'largo transactions botii on
tho Lehigh and Schuylkill rivers. They
wero tho first through transporters of
coal to tho New York market, and it is
a fitting return that tho.busluess should
still contlnuo to bo tlio largest item in
tlio Incomo of Asa Factor, its projector.
Through his coal-mining operations ho
was brought Into c!oo relations with
tho late Commodoro Stockton, and be
tween tiiem there sprung up a warm
friendship, a friendship which proved
of great value to Mr., Packer at a trying
moment,when pushing forward to com
plete tho great enterprise of his llfo, the
Lehigh Valley Railroad :
Up to thu year 1850 tho transporta
tion or the Lehigh Valley to market
had been altogether by water, but tho
business had now reached such a magnl.
tudo.ns, in Mr. Pucker's Judgment, to
ustify tho building ofa railroad ulong
the banks of tho Lehigh river. Accor
dingly ho urged upon the Lehigh Coal
and Navigation Company tho policy ol
building a road as a part of their Hystem
of transportation ; but the project was
not favourably regaided by tlio com
pany. Exporloncq, It was answorou,
had proved that coal and Iron would
only pay water freights. The Reading
"Railroad, which enjoys unusual facili
ties lu grades and water, connections,
was instanced to clinch tho argument.
Asa Packer's; opinion, howover, was
not affected .by this adverse criticism pf
his proposition, and hu determined to
tako the mutter personally .In haud.
