A PAGE OF HISTORY.
Pasning events sro an Important
educating furco to attentive minds.
I'eilinpfl tlioy oditcnto us moro than
all things oltto, for we cannot easily
got off our lesson for a single day;
and, once in a genoralion, occur elec
tric events which rouse and inform
the minds of whole nations at once.
What creature in the I'niled States so
untoachably dull its to have been no
more of a iiumnn being in mn.r than
he was in 1801 1 Hut in all recent
history 1 know of no example moro
striking of the greater good that re
sults from groat eril, than tho Stamp
Aot agitation of 1704 to 1770, which
began tho decolonization the indo-
Fondont pnblio life of North America,
t so chanced that Thomas Jenenioii,
then a student at law at Williams-
-s w.t,. l. K thUir ef
events at the timo. It was tho stamp
Act which changed old Coke's com
ments on Magna Charier from doad
Ihw to living gospel ; and what tho
.Stamp Act did for Jefferson's mind it
did tor the mind of his country. It
converted the fundamental principles
of right into the familiar things of
daily spoccb, and infused tho essence
of old Coke into a million of minds
that never heard bis name. Ho had
watched with interest, aa he himself
records, tho scries of events by which
imperial Chatham had givon Great
Britain hor opportunity of empire by
making her supreme in North Ameri
ca; and be was now to follow, with
interest moro intont and more intelli
gent, the evonls by which an ignorant
king and a corrupt ruling class threw
Eriirlui.d'a mairnitlcont chance away,
and cansod hor to lupse into an island
His friend, Patrick Henry, had
been cjminir and iroine durinir theso
student years when the gonoral court
met in autumn, anil ruling homeward,
with :look Or two of Jefferson's in
journi I over till apring; tlion return
ing th the books unread. Tho
wondr ms oloquonce which bo had dis
played in the Parsons cuso in Decem
ber, 1?G3, does not seem to bo gener
ally kiaDwn in Williamsburg in 1704 :
for hs (moved about tho streets and
publio placot unrecognized, though
not ui (narked. It would not havo
been extraordinary, if our young stu
dent b d been a little ashumod of this
oddity tf a guest as they walked to
gether toward tho capilol, at the timo
when ipe young Indies were abroad
Sukoy Poller, Betsy Mooro, Judy
Burwcll, and tho rest; for Henrys
dress pas coarse, worn, and counlriticd,
and he walked with such an air of
thoughtless unconcorn, lhat ho was
tuken by some for an idiot. Rut he
bad a cuuse to plead lhat winter; uwl
when he sat down he hud becomo
"Mr. llonry" to all Williamsburg.
You will oljsorvo in tho memorials ol
old Virginia, from 1700 to 1800, lhat,
hoover eWe may be named without
4 prefix of honor, this "forest born
I'cinoBl honed," us Jlyron styled him,
f generally Mr. Henry. To Wash
ington, to Joflorson, to Madison, to
all that circle of omiuoiit mon, ho orer
remained "Mr. llonry." On that day
in 1701 he gave such an exhibition of
his power, that during the next scs
sion of tho Houso of Durgessos, A va
cancy was made for him, and ho wne
elected to a scut. Tho up country
yeomen, whose idol he had becomo,
gladly gave thoir voles to such a man,
when the Stamp Act wits expected to
bo a topie of debate
And so, in May, 1705, the now mem
ber was in Williamsburg to (alto his
seat, a guest again of his young friond
.fefliTson. Ha sat, day after dny,
waiting for somo of the older mombors
to open tho subject. Rut no one
hoc mod to know just what to do. A
year before tho house had gontly do
niod the right of parliament to tax
the oolonies, and softly remonstrated
ugainst tbe Ihroalonod measure : but
as the act had boon passod in spile of
their objections, what more could a
loyal colony do f No one thought of
formal resistance, and remnnalranco
had failod. What else r What next i
However frequently the two friends
may have conversed upon this per
ploxity, it was Patrick llonry who
to nse bis words "alone, unadvised,
and unassisted," hit upon tbe proper
Only throe days of tin session re-
mainod. On the blank loaf of an old
"Coko upon Lyttlelon" perhaps Jef

intended on that memorable day, for
he was present in the House. Thoro
was no gallery then, ijor any othor
pruvieioti ior spectators ; but tlioro
oould bo no objection to the friend and
relative of so many members standing
:ind tho chamber ; and there bo took
his stand. Ha saw his tail count.
ooarsoly-attirod guest arise, in his
awkward way, and broak with stam
mering tongue tho silence which bad
brooded over tho loudest debates, as
wcok alter week ol tbe season bad
passod. Ho obsorved and felt, too,
tho thrill which ran through tho
House at tho niero introduotion of a
subject with which every mind was
surcharged, and marked tho rising
tido of fooling as the reading of the
resolutions wenton, until the climax of
audacity was reached the last clause in
of the last. How moderate, bow tame,
the words seem to us ! ".Every at-
tampt to invest such power (of taxa
tion) in any porson or persons what
soever, other than tbo general assem
bly alorosuid, lias a manifest tendency
to destroy British and American
freedom." Ravishing words to the
whig members front Albemarle and
the olhor western counties. Sound as
old Coko himself, in tho judgment of

our Bouiiuuuiiu listener in 1110 aoor-
way. Words of feurful import to the
tory lords of tho castorn counlios.
Wot approved as yot by lioorgo
Wylho, nor I'uyton Randolph, whom
tho student hold in so much honor.
When the roading was finished ho
heard his friend utter the oponing sen
tences of bis speech, with fullering
tongue, as usual, and giving little
proiuiso of the strains that were to
follow. But it was the Duturo of this
great genius, as of all genius, to rise
to occasions. Soon Jcflerson saw him
stand erect, and swinging frco of all
impediments, launch into tlio tido ol
his oration, overy eye caplivalcd by
the large and sweeping grace of his
gesticulation ; every ear charmed with
the swotting musioof his voice ; overy
mind thrilled or stung by the vivid
epigrams into which ho condensed his
opinions. ' He nover had a listener eo
formed to be held captive by him as
tbe student at tho lobby door, who, as
borf-hsit round tlio oratory of an
iiiuiAiI vuiui ao iinpruHHivo, uilu couiu
not now resist a slurring translation
of Ottsian'a mojestio phrase. After
tho lapse of (Illy nine yours, ho still
spoke of the great day with enthusi
asm, and described anew the closing
moment of Henry's speech, when the
orator, interrupted by cries of treason,
uttered tbo well known words of do
fiance, if this bo treason, make the
most of it."
The debalo which followed Mr.
Henry's opening speoch was, as Jef
ferson has recorded, "most bloody."
It is impossible for a loader of this
generation tn conoeivo tho mixture of
fondness, prido, and voneration wilb
which those colonists regardod tho
mother country, its parliament and
king, its church and its literature, nnd
all the glorious names and events of
its history. Whig as Jetl'orson was
by naturo and conviction, ho could
not give up England as long as thoro
was any hope of a just union with hor.
What, then, must havo been tho feel
ings of the lories of tho Houso lories
by nature and by party upon hear
ing this yoomnn from tho west speak
of tho natural rights of man in tho
spirit of a Sidney, and uso languago in
refcrenco to the king which sounded
to them like the prelude to an assas-,
sin's slab? They hud to make stand,
too, for thoir position as lenders of tho
Houso, unquestioned for a century.
To tho matter of the resolutions no
one objected. All that Wythe, Pen
dleton, Bland and Peyton Bundolph
could urge against thorn was, that
they wore unbecoming and unncccs
saryj Tho Houso had already re mon -slruted
without oft'oct, and it beoamo
a loyal people to submit. "Torrontsof
sublimo eloquence" from Patrick llon
ry, as Jefferson obsorves, swept away
thoir arguments, and the resolutions
were carried j tho last one, however,
by only asinglo voice. Standing in
the doorway, tho student watched tho
taking of tho voto on tho lust resolu
tion upon which the contest hud boon
hottest. When tho result had been
declared, Peyton Randolph, Iho king's
ntlorney gcneral, brushed past him,
saying, as he ontered the lobby,
"By U d, I would havo given five
hundred guineas for a slnglo vote I"
Doubtless, tho young gentleman
went home exulting. Patrick Henry,
u n u sod to tho artilicos of legislation,
and always impatient of detail, sup
posing now lhat Iho work for which
!,o had come to Williamsburg, was
done, mountod llutt very evening and
rodo away. Jefferson, perhaps, was
not ao suro of this t for the noxt
morning, sometime before tho hour of
meeting, bo was again at the oapitoi,
and in lbs burgesses' chamber. His
undo, Colonel Peter Randolph, one of
the tory members, eamo In, and sit
ting down at the clerk's table, began
to turn over the journals of the
House. He had a dim rocolloclinn, ho
said, of a resolution in the Houso,
many yours ago, having been expung
ed ! He was trying to find tho record
of the transaction. Ho wanted a pro
codent. The studont of law looked
over bis shoulder, as he turnod the
leaves; a group of members standing
near, in trepidation at tho thought of
yesterday's doings. Tbe Houso boll
rang; the House convened) tho stu
dent resumed his stand in the door
way. A motion was mado to expunge
the lost resolution of yesterday's so
rivs ; and, in the nbsoooo of the mighty
orator whose eloquonoe had yesterday
mado tbo d, ull intelligent nnd tho timid
brave, the motion was carried, nnd
tho resolution expunged. ,

Death or a Fhiendof CarlSciii rx.
Tbe romantic flight of the ngitator
Kinkel from the prison at Spandau
oxciled much intcrost at the timo.
Ono of tho mon who aided his escape,
says Ihe Pall Mall Gazett, has just
died at Slrehlcn, near Drcsdon. Ho
was a landod proprietor, Adolpue
Honsel by name, and bis share in Kin
kcl's flight was never discovered till
his death. Tho Yolks Zcitung relates
the story as follows :
"On the night of November 8, 1859,
Hensol, disguised as a coachman, eat
wailing, on tho box of a carriage close
by the house of correction at Spandau,
roady to drivo away at a moment's
notice Ho was accompanied by Carl
Scburx and Dr. Friodenlhal and with
Ihom saw Kinkel let himself' down
with a ropo from tho giddy height of
3rove olf at "a leltrlngalTop witli
Schun and Kinkel soon aftor mid
night. Ho had chosoo his strongost
and swiftest horses. They pressed
on without a moment's rest to Gransoe,
a village eight German miles from
Spandau. Here Iho hungry and ex
hausted horses wore baited, and ut.
eight o'clock of November 9 tho fugi
tives reached the frontier of Strolitz,
and arrived at Austcrlitz, and the fugi
tives went to Rostock, from which
placo, as is well known, they embark
ed for England. The polico never
succeodod in identifying the coach
man, without whose assistance the
oscupo could scarcely have been effccU
od, and Honsel nover experioncod any
molestation from tho authorities."
Washington as a Farmer. The
farm of General Washington, at Mount
Vornon, contained ten thousand acres.
in ono boJy equal to about fifteen
square miles. It was divided into
farms of convenient size, at tbo dis
tance of two, throo and five miles,
from tho mansion bouso. Ho visited;
theso farms every day, in pleasant
weather, and was constantly engaged
in making experiments for tho im
provement of agriculture Some idea
of the cxtont of his farming operations
may bo formed from the following
facls: In 17f7 he had flvo hundred1
and eighty acres in grass; sowed six
hundred bushels of oats ; seven hun
dred acres with wheat and as much
moro in corn, barloy, potatoes, beanst
peas, Ao., and ono hundred and fifty
with turnips. ' His slock consisted of
ono hundred and forty horses; one
hundred and twolvo cows ; two bun
hundred and thirty six working oxen,
heifers nnd stoers, and five hundred'
sheep. He constantly employed two
hundred and fifty hands, and kopt
twenty-four plows going during tho
whole year, when tho earth and stale
of tho wcuthor would permit. In
I7S0 ho slaughtered ono hundred and
fifty bona for tho uso of his own family,
and provisions for his negroes,
