TO MY MOTHER
Though thy step is slow and feeble,
And thy hair is turning gray;
Yet to me thou still art dearer,
Dearer with each coming day.
If I sometimes speak unkindly,
You will pardon me, I know,
For I could not bear to grieve you--
I would rather kindness show.
Thy advice and tender warnings,
And your unrelaxing care,
Led my roving thoughts to ponder—
Taught me to avoid each snare.
Each admonition I remember,
And thy love I'll not forget;
If in the past I have offended,
Such ingratitude I nom regret. J. sec
HOW I BEGAN LIFE.
I began life by running oway from
home. Boileau, we aro told, was dri
ven into his career by the hand of fate
and the peck of a turkey. Attilla star
ted in life with no other cause and cap
ital than an old .sword, which he was
adroit' enough to palm off for the di.
vine weapon of Mars; and Robespierre
owed his political career to wetting his
stockings—and there heard "words
which burn," that fired his soul, and
determined his course in life. My run
ning away from home arose from a
minor mortification, caused by carry
ing a pretty girl over a brook.
Donald Lean and myself were good
friends at fourteen years of age, and
We both regarded with a little more
than friendship pretty Helen Graham,
"our oldest girl at school." We romp•
ed and danced together, and this lasted
for stich a length of time that it is with
feelings of bewilderment that I look
back upon the Mystery of two lovers
continuing friends. But the time
came, as must, when jealousy lit her
spark in my boyish bosom, and blow
it into a consuming flame:
Well do I remember how and when
the "green eyed" perpetrated this in
cendiary dead. It was on a cold Oc—
tober evening, when Helen Donald and '
myself were returning, with our pa
rents, from a neighboring hamlet. As
wo approached a ford where the'water
we prepared to carry Helen across, as
wo were accustomed to,with-hands in
terwoven, "chair fashion," and thus
carried our pretty passenger over the
brook. Just as we were in the middle
of the water—which was cold enough
at the time to have frozen anything
like feeling out of boys less hardy than
ourselves—a faint pang" of jealousy
nipped my heart. Why it was, I knew
not, for we had carried Helen fifty
times across the brook ere now, with
out emotion, but this evenif ° , I thought
or fancied that Helen gave Donald an
undue preference by casting her arin
around his neck, while she steadied
herelsf on 'my side by holding the cuff
of my jacket.
No flames can burn so quickly, or
with so little fuel as jealousy. Betore,
we had reached the opposite bank, I
.was wishing Donald at the bottom of
the sea. Being naturally impetuous,
I burst out with—
"Ye need na hand so gingerly, Hel
en, as if ye feared a fa'. I can aye
carry ye lighter than Donald can half
Surprised at the vehemence of my
tone, our queen interposed with an
admission that we were both strong,
and that she bad no idea of sharino• 6 my
powers. But Donald's ire was kin
dled, and be utterly denied that I was
at all qualified to compare with him in
feats of moral courage. On such tops
les boys are generally emulous, and by
the time we reached the opposite side
it was settled that the point should be
determined by our singly carrying
Helen across the ford in our arms.
Helen was to determine who had
carried her most easily, and I settled
with myself privately in advance, that
the ono who obtained the preference
would really be the person who stood
highest in her affections. The reflec
tion stimulated me to exert every ef
fort, and I verily believe to this day,
that I could have carried Donald and
Helen on either arm like feathers. But
I must not anticipate.
We suffered all the rest of the party
to pass quietly along, and then return
ed to the ford. I lifted Helen with
the utmost ease, and carried her like
an infant to the middle of the water.
Jealousy had inspired a warmer love,
and it was with feelings unknown be
fore that I embraced her beautiful
form, and felt the pressure of her cheek
against mine: All went swimmingly,
or rather wailingly, for a minute. But
alas, in the very deepest part of the
ford, I trod on a treacherous piece of
I-• suppos e , -oa
smooth stone. Over I. rolled, hearing
Helen with me, nor did wo rise until
fairly soaked from head to foot.
I need not describe the taunts of
Donald, or the more accusing silence
of Helen. Both believed that I had
fallen from mere weakness, and my
rival demonstrated his superior ability
by bearing her in his arms for a long
distance on her homeward path. As
we approached the house, Helen, feel
ing dry, and better humored, attemp•
ted to conciliate me. But I preseried
silence. I was mortified beyond re
That night I packed up a few things
and ran away. My boyish mind, sen•
sitivo and irritated, exaggerated the
negation which it had received, and
prompted me to a courso which, for•
tunately, led inc to bettor results than
usually attend such irregularities. I

became his partner—went abroad—
resided four years on the continent,
and finally returned to Scotland, rich,

One evening, while at a ball in Glas•
gow, I was struck by a young lady of
unpretending appearance, but whose
remarkable beauty and brightened ex
pression indicated a mind of more than
ordinary power. I was introduced,
but the Scottish names had long been
unfamiliar to my car, and I could not
catch hers. It was lielen something;
the face, too, that seemed familiar—
something suggestive of pleasure and
But we became well acquainted that
evening. I learned, without difficulty,
her history. She was from the coun'
try, had been educated, her parents
had lost their property, and she was
now a governess in a family of the city.
I was fascinated with her conversa
tion, and was continually reminded,
by her grace and refinement of man
ner, that she was capable of moving
with distinguiShed success in a far
higher sphere than that which fortune
seemed to have assigned her. I am
naturally neither talkative nor prone
to confidence; but there was that in
this young lady which inspired both,
and I conversed with her as I had nov
or conversed with any. Her questions
of the various countries with which I
indicated a remarkable
knowledge of literature, and an incred
ible store of information.
We progressed in the intimacy, and
as conversation turned on the reasons
which induce so many to leave their
native land, I laughingly remarked
that my own travels were owing to
fallint , with a pretty girl into a ford.
I had hardly spoken these words,
ere the blood mounted to her face, and
was succeeded by quite a remarkable
paleness. I attributed it to the heat
of tho room— laughed—and at her re
quest, proceeded to give the details of
my ford adventure with Helen Gra
ham, paintimg in glowing colors the
amiability of love.
Her mirth, during the recital, be
came irrepressible. At the conclusion
she remarked :
"Mr. Roberts, is it possible you have
1 gazed an I natan
whom I had become acquainted was
Helen Graham herself.
I hate, and so do you, reader, to
needlessly prolong a story. We were
married—Helen and I made our bri•
dal tour to the old place. As we ups
proached in our carriage, I greeted a
stout follow working in a field, or per-.
haps a small farmer, by inquiring
some particulars relating to the neigh•
borhood. He answered well enough,
and I was about to give him a sixpence
when Helen stayed my hand, and cried
out in the old style:
"Hey, Donald, mon, dine ye ken
ye'er old friends?
The man looked up in astonishment.
It was Donald Lean. His amazement
at our appearance was heightened by
its style; and it was with the greatest
difficulty that wo could induce him to
enter• our carriage and answer our nu
merous queries as to old friends.
Different men "start in life" in dif
ferent ways. I believe that mine,
however, is the only instance on rec
ord, of a gentlemen who owes wealth
and happiness to rolling over with a
pretty girl in a stream of water.
FIRST USE OF PAPER MONEY IN AMER
ICA.—Tho first colonist used pelting
and wampum as substitutes for coin.
In 1610 the Council in New Nether
land petitioned to raise the value of
money in their colony in order to pro
vont its exportation. Afterward,Gov.
Stuyvesant tried to introduce a specie
currency and to establish a mint at
Now Amsterdam. New England al
ready had her mint.
Massachusetts was the first of the
colonies to use paper money. In 1690
it issued bills to the amount of seven
thousand pounds to pay the soldiers,
engaged in the expedition against the
French in Canada. Twelve years after
Carolina issued paper money to pay
her soldiers. Three or four years after
a paper money act was passed on the
Island of Barbedoes. A little after. in
1703, Connecticut and New York pass
ed enactments erecting bills of credit.
The low state of the currency at
this time in New York was thought to
arise from the fact that most of the
foreign trade of the country came
through Boston and other New Eng
land ports, drawing thither money
and produce. In 1696 the difference
between New York and sterlinr , mon
ey was about ono fifth ; in 17eabout

prove of value to some of our readers:
"Take in your well and cistern in cold
nights and keep them by the fire."
"I DON'T miss my church so much as

Too bashful to "pop the question"in
the usual way, Major Jones persuades
his sweet heart to put up a stocking,
which will hold a couple of bushels, on

"witching hour of night." But we will
lot the Major speak for himself.
I remained up till midnight., and
when they were all gone to bed I soft
ly went into the back gate and -went
up to the porch and thar, shore enuff,
was a great big meal hag hanging to
the joice. It was monstrous unhandy
to get to it, but I was determined not
to back out. So I set some chairs on
the top of a bench and got hold. of he
rope and let myself down into the bag;
but just as I was getting in, the bag
swung againSt the chatrs, and down

WRO MAKES YOUR BRANDY ?—This
is an important query with brandy
drinkers, ill view of some recent do.
velopments, in. a trial before the U.
S. Cirquit at Albany, last week. One
Mr. Morris well known in Albany and
olsewhe-e, has been selling manufac
tured brandy in large quantities to
dealers throughqut the country .Sev
eral casks of it were seized some time
since at Platlsburg, supposed to be
foreign liquor. The United States of
ficer held it, and Morris sued for his
property. In order to show that it
was not a foreign article he was oblig
ed to prove that it was of home manu
facture. This was done by placing on
the stand Mr. George Dayton, of the
firm of Dayton & Co., rectifiers and
dealers, in liquors in Now
who testified that he was engaged in
manutlicturing imitation brandy, and
that he had sold to Morris from three
to five hundred casks. This brandy
is made from neutral and cologne
spirits, flavored witn oil of cogniac.
Griffin, a cooper, was called to show
that he had manufactured the imita
tion Trench brandy casks fur Dayton
and others. No part of the material
but the willow is imported. He testis
fled that they put dates on the casks
eight, ton, and fifteen years back.
There aro four - or five of the same kind
of establishments in New York and
Brooklyn. lie made over ten thous—
and of the imitation casks for Dayton
in a year. Several parties who pre'

i The President on Representation .in
When the fever which just now in,
flames the public mind against Presi
dent Johnson shall have subsided, as
it certainly will, candid people will
have no difficulty in seeing that it has
been largely due to studied and mali•
cious misrepresentation of his position
on various questions of public import
ann. And upon no ono subject have
these misrepresentations been more
studied and persistent, than upon his
views in regard to the representation
of the Rebel States in Congress. From
one end of the country to the other,
ho has boon denounced for urging the
admission of Southern members, loyal
and disloyal alike, to their seats,
The just cry that "Rebels shall not
rule the nation they tried to ruin"—
has been so echoed and reseehoed as
to imply that it was hostile to the pro.
sident's policy of restoration. Mem ,
hers of Congress in their speeches have
dwelt upon it in this sense. Hostile
newspapers throughoitt the land have
filled their columns with the most bit.
ter diatribes upon this text, and the
public mind everywhere has been tho
roughly filled with the belief that the
President demands the instant admis
sion to their seats in Congress of men
elected by the Rebel States, without
inquiry into their action in the past, or
their attitude towards the government
in the present posture of public affairs.
It would be useless to deny that
these efforts, systematic, persistent,
and unscrupulous as they have been,
have produced a marked effect upon
the public mind. They have seriously
impaired that confidence in the Presi
dent's wisdom and fidelity to the prin
ciples which have crushed the Rebel
lion, which is essential to the harmoni
ous co operation of the Executive and
Legislative Departments of the Gov•
ernment, and to the welfare, of the na
tion in the crisis through which it is
We have no fear that these efforts
or their effects will be lasting. The
impression they have produced is ut
' terly false, and is as mischievous as it
is unjust. In everything he has said
upon this subject—in his Message to
Congress, in his veto of the freedmen's
bureau bill, in his speech of the 22d of
February, and in all his addresses to
delegations from the Southern States,
ho has insisted that none but loyal men
should be admitted to seats in Con
tests as it may prescribe, of the loyalty
of every loan who claims to represent
any district of any State. And in his
speech to the soldiers and sailors on
Wednesday, 18th April, ho was still
more explicit and emphatic upon this
point. After showing that, under the
Constitution, and in conformity with
the, fundamental principles of our form
of Government, the people of every
State are entitled to representation,
he went on to say:— •
"Admit representation, and when we
say admit representation, what do we
mean ? . Wo mean representation in
the constitutional and law abiding
sense as was intended at the berdnning
of the GoVernment, and where does
that power lie? The Constitution de
clares, in express terms, that each
House, the Senate and House of Ilep•
resentatives, each acting for i tsel fshall
' be the judges of the returns, elections,
and qualifications of its own members.
It is for each House to settle that
question under the Constitution, and
under the solemn sanction of an oath.
Can we believe that either House
would admit any member into its body
to participate in the legislation of the
country, who was not qualified and fit
to sit in that body and participate in
its proceedings? They have the pow
er, not the two Houses, but each
House for itself. The Constitution
further declares that no State shall be
deprived of its equal suffrage in the
Senate of the United States without
its consent. Then where do we stand?
All that is needed to finish this great
work of restoration, is for the two
Houses respectively to determine these
questions. "Oh I" but some will say,
"a traitor might come in." The answer
to that is, that each House must be the
judge, and if a traitor presents himself,
cannot either House know that he is a
traitor? [Applause.] And if he is a
traitor, can they not kick him out of
the door, and send him back saying to
the people who sent him "you must
send us a loyal man ?" [Cheers and a
voice "that is logic."] Is there any
difficulty about that? If a traitor pre
sents himself to either House, cannot
that House say to hint "No you can-
Int be admitted into this body; go
back; we will not deny your people
of the right of represents tion, but they
must send us a loyal representative"
And when the States do send loyal
representatives, can you have any
better evidence of their fidelity to the
Constitution and laws?
"There is no one learned in the Con
stitution and the laws who will say
that, if a traitor happens to got into
Congress, the body cannot expel him
after he gots in. That makes assurL
anew doubly sure, and conforms the
action of the Government to the Con
stitution of our fathers; hence I say
let us stand by that Constitution, and
in standing by it the convcnant will
The President's theory upon this
point is, that ouch House has the right
to judge of the qualifications of its mem
bers—that loyalty is an essential and
indisputable "qualification" of mem
bership; and that each House has the
absolute and unqualified right to do
cido by test oaths, or by any other
tests it may see fit to apply, whether a
claimant is loyal or not, It ho is lo,yld,
he holds that he is to bo admitted. If

TERMS, $2,00 a year in advance.
And . this applies to every State and to
every district and to every claimant to
a soot in Congress. And if a disloyal
man should by any chance secure ad
mission, ho holds that he may be ex
pelled. And when in the Senate of
the United States, he proved 1 3 16 perso
nal devotion to this principle by voting
for the expulsion of Senator Bright, of
Indiana, because was proved to be a
disloyal man, and thus "disqualified"
for holding a seat in the national coun
The only point of difference in this
connection between the President and
the leaders in Congress is . , that they
exclude loyal and disloyal alike—ex
cluding Maynard, and Stokes, and
Cooper, loyal men from Tennessee,
who can take the test oath just as rig
idly and relentlessly as Stephens and
Johnson and Graham and others, who
cannot. In his judgment, this is a
power which the Constitution has not
conferred upon them, and an abuse
which discourages loyalty and fidelity
to the Union in the Southern States,
while everything should be done to
build thorn up. Time whi show which
is the wisest policy; but the President's
true position on the subject ought not
longer to be misunderstood.—Times. •
Denying Loyal Men Admission,
. It will ever remain one of the ama
zing things in the history of the pres
ent Congress, that Messrs. Maynard
and Stokes, of Tennessee, and others
similarly situated, should have been so
long kept out of their seats. The gen
tlemen we have named wore members
of Congress from the same State and
districts immediately preceding the
Rebellion. Mr. Maynard, if not Col.
Stokes, remained in his seat—his Vim .
not expiring—long enough to vote men
and supplies to put the Rebellion down.
Their terms expiring they retired; ono
to recruit a regiment with which to
fight the war through, and to do his
share to put the Rebellion down, the
other by every personal exertion of
which he was capable, to labor to se
cure the same result. Mod could do no
more than they did to save the Gov
ernment, except to lay down their
lives, and this they were ready to do
if necessary. No man more frequent
jn the meat cause
The war being over and the rebel
lion down, these two men were recho
son to Congress by their old and un
changed constituents,—and here we
reach what will over remain an ama
zing passage in history. They are per
sistently, unreasonably denied admis
sion to their old seats! There is neith
er blot nor stain on them. Not a
breath of suspicion is uttered against
them. And yet they do not complain;
but while waiting, there being no ten
ted fields to enter, no more martial
battles to fight, with their fellow Un
ion men they take the stump for the
good old cause in Connecticut, and
help to win battles there scarcely loss
important than those won before. The
country resounds with the shouts of
triumph ; but the doors of Congress are
still closed against these men !
There may •have been what was
deemed a sufficient reason, or there
may have been unwise leadership, or
this probably may have boon a part of
a plan, not unmixed with individual
resen tin en t,towards others than Messrs
Maynard and Stokes. However it may
have been, it seems not to be a course
to persist in much further, unless there
can ho given a hotter reason than has
yet been. If we mistake not this is
the idea everywhere becoming preva ,
lent. Not only in this but in all mat
ters Congress can have no better lead
er than the sentiment of the people.—
THADDEUS STEvENs.--Harper's Week
ly; which has hitherto advocated the
peculiar politics of Thaddeus Stevens
with much bitterness, has recently
shifted its ground, and gives in a late
issue the following sketch of the leader
of the Radicals:
Ho (Mr. Stevens) is strictly a rove
lutionary leader, reckless, unsparing,
vehement, vindictive, loud for the
rights of conquerors, intolerant of op
position, and as absolutely incapable of
fine discrimination and gonorous judg
ment as a locomotive of singing. Of
a pleasant humor and porsonal kindli
ness, he is no more fitted for the task
of reconstruction which devolves upon
Congress than a jovial blacksmith to
repair a watch, or "a butcher to take
up hidden arteries and sundered veins
in the very region of the heart." Yet
a Congress, which is undoubtedly ono
of the ablest that was ever assembled,
has quietly allowed itself to be almost
a puppet in the hands of such a man
and at such a time. The consequence
is that Mr. Steven's crude and rash
talk is supposed tube the voice of Con
gress. legislator who undertakes to
regulate the price of gold by law is the
tacitly acknowledged chief of a body
of practical business men. A repro
sentative who sneers at the press is a
permitted leader in a party croated
and triumphant by free discussion. * *
It is one of the marvels of the time
that no man known its a 'Radical has
vindicated the party and the country
against Mr. Stevens. * Vet nothing
18 more certain than that the calm,
good sense; of the great Union party
has strongly comkinned jql vj,, aLL I
racy of Mr. SteVett*.

Wanted, A Statesman,
The long columns of advertisenientS )
published day after day, under the
general head "Wanted," do not by far
toll all our needs. They are excellent
mediums through which to find "Hott
ess to Let" and" Houses for Sale,""Mon
ey to Lend" and "Money• to Borrow,"
but we greatly doubt if the effort
would accomplish anything were wo
to publish there the greatest want of
aII—WANTED, A STATESMAN. ,In all
the important crises of the country
hitherto, we were blessed with one
statesman or more with sufficient in--
telloct to grasp the problem of the sit
uation and sufficient skill to solve it.
Men of former modest .protonsione
have sometimes, under the pressure of
urgent necessity,: risen equal to t h e
emergency and proposed and carved
out measures of great utility and, wis
The present crisis in our national
affairs has already existed for many
months without producing a statesman
able to comprehend it and to suggest
measures necessary to remove it. Tho
President, nearly twelve months since,
announced a policy, and ever since
then has labored to carry it out.. Com•
gross for nearly five menthe, under
passionate and impracticable leader
ship, has boon exhausting itself in_per
sistont efforts to prove that the Presk•
dent's policy is wrong,. without being;
able to digest and bring fbrward one
that is right. All those valuable
months have been frittered away with
scarcely a scratch of legislation for the
great industrial interests of the min
try having been produced. It requir
ed the almost herculean efforts of the.
Secretary of the Treasury to procure
the passage of the Loan bill even in
the shape it came from Congress. If
the Civil Rights . Bill is referred.to as
an exception, we also have the decision
by high judicial authority that the vi
tal features of the bill were already the
law of the land
_before its passage.
But grant all the good that has . ever
been claimed for this, and the case is
not materially changed.
We will look in vain into the legis
lation of the present Congress for much
that is neither practical or useful, and
as it must soon adjourn if ever, it is
greatly to bo feared that the great
measures of trade and finance will
never be acted on, or acted on without
proper consideration of the questions
involved, unless a statesman, or, what
•might measureably remedy the evil,
tions which must be determined wise-.
ly and without further delay,-or
chit disaster will inevitably occur.
Much as we desire the adoption of a
policy which will re-unite the States
that rebelled and give us permanent
peace and prosperity, we believe they
might be safely held in abeyance for a
time sufficiently long to allow Con
gress to legislate in earnest upon the
Ta-iff and Revenue. It would beimuch
better, however if the policy of tho
country upon all important subjects
including that of Southern reconstruc
tion—could be speedily settled; indeed
the belief gains strength that Congress
can show no good reason why it has
not been settldd before this,—at least
better progress made. • •
We need not discuss the subject
which has received the almost undivi
ded attention of Congress--that is,
whether, the President's policy is right
or wrong. We say what we are per-
spadedis truth, that the failure for
nearly five months of the large majority
in Congress to announce a better, or
any policy, has created an undercur
rent among the people—among the
masses of the loyal party that elected
that majority—an undercurrent which
cannot fail to operate to the disadvan
tage of many who con - fidently rely up
on the popular favor. Congress•has
unwisely permitted itself to go upon
If it is not safe now to admit the
Southern representatives, Congress
should mature a policy that will tell us
what is necessary to bo done before
the re-union can bo perfected. Lot us
know when and on what basis the ex
clusion from Congress is to cease. The
people will demand as much ere long.
Indeed, the Allegheny meeting On
Thursday, expressed an "earnest
desire and hope" for a policy "as
speedily as possible;" and what was
there and then expressed merely as a
"desire and hope," will, if not respons
dod to, develop into a demand. The
people know that permanent legisla
tion by a portion for the entire coun,
try is not generally advisable, and
should be confined within as narrow
limits as possible. The prayer of the.
Allegheny mooting was in this spirit
and is deeply significant. The pebble
has been cast—who can stop the agi
tation of the water 1 The. want still is,

A REMARKABLE OURE.—.-A young
man wanted to marry a girl out in
Wisconsin, .but her rich parent; fc!..,
hade the match. The young man be
came sick—very sick—and had - terri
ble fainting ,fits. The doctors wore
called, and said he would soon dio, and
he said he wanted to. The father of
the girl visited the patient, and agreed
with both him and the doctors. The
poor fellow said if he could sec his
.N.dry Ann he would die happily. His
dying request certainly could not bo
refused, and Mary Ann having no ob
jections, the minister was sent for, and
the solemn ordinance of marriage was
performed before the most solemn mes
senger of death should stop in to snatch
away the gasping bridegroom from
time to the regions of eternity. The
knot being securely tied the patient
rose from the bed a Ire!! man. It was
a great cure, astonishing both thercru
el "pane and the doctors, but .the

it all the time.
