When brothers leave the old heaithstono
And Kt each one, a seperato way,
We think, ns ivo go on alono
Along our pathway, day by day,
Of ulden scenes nml faces dear,
of voices that no tnlss so much,
And memory brink's tho absent near,
Until wo slmost feel tho touch
Of loving hands, and bear, once more,
Tlio dear eld voices ringing out,
As In tho happy lime of yore,
l.ru I lio had caught a Shade ot doubt.
if you should placo ncalnst your ear
The shell you plundered from tho sea,
Down In its hidden heart you'd hear
A low nnd tender melody,
A murmur of tho restless tide,
A yearning, born of inemor,
And, though Its longings bo denied,
Tlio tliPlI keeps singing ot the sen,
And sometime when old memories throng,
Like ghosts, the chntnbers of our souls,
We feel the ) earning, deep nnd strong,
A longing we cannot control,
To lay our cares nnd business by
To seek tho old, familiar wuys,
And cross homo's threshold, nnd sit down
With comrades of our eailler da)s.
l'or, though our paths are sundered wide,
Wo feel that wo uro brothers )et,
And by and by we turn nsldo
From hum Ing caro and worldly fret.
And each ono wanders back to meet
Ills brother by tho hearth ot home j
I think tho meeting is more sweet
llucauso so far und w Ide w o roam.
We cross tho lengthened brld,'e of jears,
.Meet outs retched hands ana faces true :
Tho silent eloiiueuco ot teals.
Speaks welcome that no words can do.

It lay in one of the fairest spots in all the
mid-land counties, and yet such a ghostly
desolate, haunted place I could not even
have conceived beforo I saw it. I had seen
ruined mansions before, and I had walked
in rank, neglected and forgotten parks; but
it seemed to me that the isolation and the
desolation here were dill'erent. I told the

house, pointing out the remnants of past
beauty, which were even yet distinguishable
through the blight of decay.

small that a couch and chair and tablo, with

When the police came and look away the

The boy, a pretty, timid child of scarcely

Ho had been walking quietly home the

when ho turned from the turnpike ready to

Iu tho fall of 1838 Nathaniel P.Taltnadge,
a Senator of tlio United States from New
York, who had separated from tho Demo
cralic party and joined tlie Whigs inoppnsi

lluren, was announced to speak on the issues
of the day in Columbia county. A meeting
had been arranged very quietly, at which it
was hoped ho might exert an iiitlucuce on
the doubtful men and change tho political
complexion of the party. The Tildens heard
of the proposed meeting about noon of the
day upon which it was to bo held. They
promptly sent word to all tho Democrats ot

largest meetings ever known iu that region.

was thrown off bis guard, and stoutly cried
out, "Not" Mr. Tilden skilfully availed
himself of tliii declaration of ills old neigh
bor and friend, and applied It to tho Senator
in a strain of masterly sarcasm and irony.
Tho effect was electric; it thrilled tho as
sembly nnd completely deslrt-ycd tho objectn
of the meeting.
Mr. Tilden. who had watched this finan
cial revolution of 1837 from tlio beginning,
and knew its merits as thoroughly, perhaps,
ns any man of his time, undertook a defense
of tlio President's scliemo and to overthrow
tho sophistries of his enemies iu a speech
which lie delivered in New Lebanon on tlio
third day of October, 1840. No ono can
read this speech without marvelling that
men like Webster and Nicholas lllddle, to
whoso arguments Mr. Tilden especially ad
dressed himself, could ever have becomo tho
champions of a system under which tho rev
enues of the nation wcro made the basis of
commercial discounts. It is moro marvel
lous, however, that in so short u tlmo our
pcoplo should have forgotten, ns to a very
considerable extent they appear lo have
done, tho lessons taught iu this speech, nnd
thoso still belter taught by the war then
waged by the Democratic party with tho
policy of Inflation, irredeemable currency,
and irresponsible credits. At the time this
speccli was delivered tho Whigs wero medi
tating tlie re-establishment of tho United
States liauk if they could succeed in divid
ing tlio Democrats on tho sub-treasury
scheme. This effort provoked Mr. Tilden
to review the history af tho bank and expose
its ill-founded claims to bo regarded in any
sense as what it claimed to be, "a regulator
of the currency." What ho says upon that
subject possesses to tho reader of to-day not
only considerable historical interest, but, is
pregnant with lessons which we fear will
never be out of season.
Upon hisadmUsinu to the bar Mr. Tilden
opened an oflice iu Piue street, in tho city of
Iu 1844, iu anticipation and preparation
for tlio election which resulted in making

a member of that body was elected to tho
convention for tho remodeling of the consti

adjourned. In both of these bodies Mr. Til
den was a conspicuous authority, and left a
permanent impression upon tlie legislation
of the year, and especially upon all tho'new
constitutional provisions affecting the fiimn
ccsjof the State and the management of its
system of canals.
The defeat of Mr. Wright in the fall of
1840, and the coolness which had grown up
between the friends of President Polk and
the friends of tho late President Van Buren
resulted fortunately fur Mr Tilden, if not
for tho country, in withdraw ing his attention
from politics and concentrating it upon hia
profession. Hn inherited no fortune.but de

despite his strong tastes and pre-eminent
qualifications for political life, he was able,
to discern at that early period the importance
in this country, at leist, of a pecuniary in
dependence for tho successful prosecution of
a political career. With an assiduity and a
concentration of energy which havo charac
terized all tho transactions of his life, Mr.
Tilden now gave himself up to his profes

came as well known at the bar as he had
before been known as a politician. His busi
ness developed rapidly, and though he con
tinued to take more or less interest in politi
cal matters they were not allowed after 1857
to interfere with his professional duties.
He built up a reputation in a few years ut
tho bar of New York city which gave him a
leading placo iu tlio profession. In the not
ed caso of the liurdell-Cunnliigham contested
will, where apparently insuperablo proof of
the marriage of Mrs. Cunningham to tho
murdered llurdell were presented, Mr. Til-
den's resources as a lawyer were brought in
to conspicuous notice, lio succeeded in de

removing all doubt of her participation in
tlio llurdell murder, notwithstanding tho
His connection with the celebrated suits
of tho Pennsylvania Coal Company against

that his clientage was greater than it wa3 pos
