Principles nro eternal, panics bored

(if,.lo-ciuv, lire onlliane) slroriir, wan
loumled by Tbomas Jelleraou ; Ibe He
publican party ol to-day is Ibe Federal
party, loundud by Alexander Humil-
ion. deneral lluncocK wan cducalea
n Ibe party of JtfleranD: Gen. Gar
field in Ibo parly ol llannlloii, and in
bisppcecb in New York, during bin
visit, Aueuhl bib, to ibat eity, be pro-
cluiined bin lull beliet in Ibe doctrines
ol llamillon, and made hint bio ideal
dlattsinan. I gave Gen. Garfield's own
careful words :
That student, soldier, statesman,
and great leader ol'thoilgbt, Alexander
llamillon, ol JSetv lurk, maue tins re
publio glorious by his tbinking, and
lelt bis lastinrr impress upon Jew
York, tbe loremont Slate of tbe Union;
and bere on tbis island, the scene ot
bis early triumphs, we gather to-night,
soldiers ol the new war, representing
iho same ideas 01 nmon and glory, and
adding to the column ol the monument
that Hamilton and Washington end
the heroes of the Revolution reared."
Spoken before the election, we road
these words now, in the light of tbe
result of tbal election, only to realise
Iheir double significance, as we von
Irani the character of Alexander llam
illon with that ol Thomas JefTerrjon.
Never were tho methods of Hamilton
more completely in accord with tho
character and examples of the success
ful candidate on tbe xu ol November,
18H0; and the tribute ol Garfield 10
llamillon was only tbe echo ol 11am-
ilton's own dream of a splendid gov
i-rnment. Garfield was chosen by
money "only." There is no fact more
patent tban that II the sentiment 01
tbe nation bad been left towotkits
way Hancoc k would now be President
elect. Tbo character of Alexander
Hamilton, so carefully indorsed in ad
vanco of the election by the Republi
can candidate lor 'resident, and there
lore made bis model lor bis future ad
ministration, Is tbe accepted symbol of
tbe kimrry ideal ; and those who urmly
believe that the formal surrender of
the Republican party to tbe plutocracy,
or money-rings, ol' this country, means
nothing short ol empire, nnd in tbe ex
ample of Alexander Hamilton a ready
preparative for such a destiny. Tbal
eliaracter.as described by the bistoriun,
shows why General Garfield so caie
lully put him lorward as the great
leader of A morican destiny. Tho best
views of the policy of Alexander llam
illon la Irom the poo of James Parton,
the gruutest living biographer, now a
citiienof Massachusetts ; and as I copy
it 1 need not be told why Gen. Gar
Hold made Hamilton bis exemplar in
New York last August, and why be
carefully ignorod Thomas Jefferson
llamillon is the best illustration of tbe
influence of capltul, tbe force of money
in elections, the tremendous agencies
ol wealth in society, in fact, tbe real
champion of splendid government.
Now hoar what James Parton says ol
Gen. Garfield's ideal :
"But il be caugbt bis loose military
morals Irom the Gaule, it was from the
lirluab that this Union learned his
politics. Before the war was over be
-was struck wilb disgust' at the rise oi
a parly actuated by 'an undue com
nlaisance' to France, a power which,
in helping os, bad only been pursuing,
he thought, her oie interest. '1 re
aolved at once,' he continues, 'to resist
this bias in our affairs.' Ho was British,
as was natural. He bad a British
mind and a British heart. While in
ibe immediate presence of tbe fact that
the English governmental system bad
split asunder tho British Empire, bo
cberiabed the conviction that it was
tbo best system possible. It was the
hereditary dunderhead wilb whom
Great Britain was saddled who began,
continued, and ended the bnsincsa ol
serving America from tbe empire ; ami
yet tbe very corruption of Parliament,
which had enabled an obstinate and
unteaehable king to carry bis meas
ures, Hamilton extolled as essential to
its porleclion. Tbe grand aim of bia
public life was to make tbe govern
nient of the Uuited Hut too as little un
like that ef Great Briiian aa tbe poople
would bear II. Nor did be reach these
nonactions by any process ol reason
ing, lie was a Briton, and il was then
part of a Briton's birthright to enjoy
a oompluie assurance ol bis country's
vast superiority lo all others in all
ibings. 1 honor him lor the disinter
ested spirit in which he pursued his
system, and tbe splondid contempt Of
all considerations ol policy wild wbioD
be avowed opinions tbe most unpopu
lar. In spite ol hlo errors and his laulia,
ibis alone would give him some lille to
"lie began at an early period of tbe
war lo lake laborious part in politi
cal discussion. While tbe army lay at
Murrialown, ia 1779, having ka to dv
than usual at headqaTartere, " hlT
mg arrived at tbe mature age of tweo-ly-lbrve,
he wrote to Robert Morris ao
anony moos letter, thai mast have filled
a doien ebeots of targe paper, upon
tbe troubled finances of the oountry,
recommending tbe eeubliahmeot of a
Bank ol tbo Vnited SUtlos. The
scheme was wrought out in great de
tail, with Infinite labor and uncommon
ability for so young a financier. Ibe
scheme was founded upon Law's idea
of utilising the depreciated papor with
wmt'D L.OUIS me avidi prtuusion uau
deluged Franco." By receiving bun
dreds of millions of ibis paper at its
market value in payment for shares in
various enterprises, Law soon raised
tbe price of paper above that of gold,
and thus afforded tho strange spectacle
of people selling their family plalo in
order to buy a dead king's promises to
pay. Hamilton, of course, intended to
slop short of Law's fatal cxccises. He
was as honorable a person in all mat
ters pecuniary as everdrow the breath
of lile, and consequently, A is bank was
to have a sound basis of two millions
ot pounds sterling of borrowed money,
to which should be added a subscrip
tion of two bundled millions of dollars
in tbe depreciated paper of Congress.
At oneo, tho thought, the paper would
rise in value and become an instru
ment of good. Tho existence of the
bank he thought 'would make it tho
immediate interest of the moneyed men
toco-opurato with tbe government in
Its support.' Tbis was tbo key to his
financial system, for he novor advanc
ed beyond the ideas of tbis production.
It was ever his conviclion that a gov
ernment could not stand which it was
not the interest of capitalists to uphold ;
and by capitalists he meant the class
who control money, who live in cities and
can speculate in paper, lie. meant Wall
Street, though as yet the actual street
of that name was only a pleasant lane
of modest Dutch-looking residences."
"1 feel deeply the truth of Jeffeis n's
remarks that llamillon was the evd gen
ius of America. He meddled balelully
wilb the melal of American inslilu
lions whilo il was cooling, and so mud
died tho political system of tho coun
try tbut probably it will never get tbe
shape originally intended till il is re
cast. Al the moment when 1 am
v ritinrr theso wordn the country is ttriv
ing to rid itself of that miserable fag end
of one of Hamilton s ridiculous tmjenui
ties the Electoral Co lege. Perhaps in
1887, tbe hundredth anniversary ol tbo
Constitutional Convention, the country
may be ripe for a Becond Constitution,
al Convention, which will thoroughly
JelTersonize the General Government;
making it tho simple, strong, and
strictly limited agency which tbo poo
ple meant it should be, and desire tbut
it shall be. W by have a written Con
slitulion if it is not to be religiously
complied with ? How safe, how wise,
how adapted to our limited human ca
pacity the simple theory of the General
Government which Jeirurson and Mad
Now take llio character of Thomas
Jefl'umon as a contrastini; picture.
Hamilton was killed by Aaron Burr
on ihu 1 2i.li of July, 1804, in a duel at
llouoken, a year belore 1 nomas Jet
ferson was triumphantly re-elected
Presidont of the United States, while
bis great work of acquiring Louisiana
Irom France waa progressing. Tbe
same great writer tbal gives us ibe
portrait of Alexander llamillon, made
by Oenoral barueld, the lounder ol Hie
federal or Republican parly, gives
another and a lar ditlereni estimation ot
J cflcrson,lhc lounder ol the Democratic
parly ; and to-day, when tho new Pres
ident oi the United States goes back
lo draw bis imspiralion Irom lite les
sons ol a man whoso whole dream was
to mould our country into a vast em
pire, it is tilling that tbe American
people sbould be turned lo tbe teacb-
in irs ol that maKniliceiit leader, the
author ol tbe Declaration ol American
Independence, who died on tho 4lh of
July, 1820, oa the same day when his
contemporary and IriendJubn Adams,
01 JUussacwusetts, tbe second 1'residenl
ol the United Htales, brealhed bis last
at Uuincy, in thai Stale. V bat a par
allel between these glowing words ol
tbo incomparable writ, r and ibe strain
ed eulogy of General Gai field of tbe
man wbo created the redcral. Whig,
and Republican parlies I Parton said
ot Jt lTerson :
"He was an almost perfect citiien
lie loved and believed in bis species.
Few men have ever been belter edu
cated than be, or practiced more habit
ually the methods of an educated per
son. He defended the honor ot tbe
human intellect when its natural Iocs
throughout Christundom conspired lo
revile, degrade, and crush il. Alter
YVosbinKion he was tbe best cbiul
magistrate of a republic tho world has
ever known, and in some particulars
be surpassed Washington, lie kocnly
enjoyed his exisience, and made il a
beiielaclion to mankind."
Thomas Jefferson budded bettcrthan
be knew. No American example has
Krown so wunderlully wnb the years,
From tbal fountain of American free,
dom, tbe Declaration ol American In
dependence, all our great Irancbises,
and guarantees, and bulwarks bave
continuously flowed. He was the first
buld enemy ot human slavery, tbe
leader in the first irreal acquisition of
territory, the bold champion ef tbe
rights of the adopted citizen and ol
tliut Native American party of which
the modern Kepubhcan creed is a nut
oral product, the practical advocate ef
tbo protection ol American industry
ibe tearless foe of all monopolies, the
great apostle ol universal education
and tbe relentless enemy ol all joi
and corruption in government. 11
died at the greitt age of 83, alter i
career full of wonderlul works, not the
least ol which was bis bonosty, purity
patriotism, and large bumanily. A

give those two great passages from his
Unit and second inaugural addresses

MR. PA KNELL A T HOME
HOW HE LOCKS AND ACTS AT AVONIIAI.E
HOUSE ITS HI KBOI NMNC1S.
(Prom tbe London World
"Since I forsook agriculture lor poli
tics," said Mr. Parnell, "1 have not
slept six nights at Avondalo llouso."
Tbe chief agitator's country scut Is an
unpretending residence situated on the
slope ol the Wick low Mountains, with
a buauliful view nf forest, river and
dale from the windows ot the living
rooms. It has a rather barren and
neglected look, its whitewashed ex
terior harmonizing but ill wilb the
tints of tho meadow-land slretcbing in
a semicircle, bounded by lolly trees, in
front of tbe houso. The houso was
built by Mr. Parncll'sgrundlalber, and
on the lock of the entrance door the
dato 1779 is inscribed. On crossing tho
threshold the visitor finds himself in
a square hull of moderate dimensions,
along one Bide of which there runs a
gallery overhead, leading to the sleep
ing apartments. The must conspicu
ous object in the ball is a billiard table,
across the slates of which no ball has,
to judge Irom appearances, rattled lor
generations. The wall" are ducorutod
wilb horns oi tho anciont Irish elk,
with hunting spears and other implo
menu of warfare and chase. A log fire
burns on a spacious open hearth. As
the visitor stands examining tue place,
house with him. Mr. Parnell is a man
ol singularly mild and gracious man
ners in private life, but one's eyes are
constantly directed inquiringly to tho
cold and bloodless lace in the endeavor
to reconcile the frigid exterior with the
courtesy ol the lips.
Tbo parlor of Avondalo House is
neither homely nor cheerful, and the
atmosphere ol the room is that of the
Laureate's forsaken dwelling. One
could fancy that the coverings had just
been drawn off tbe furniture at the ex
piralion of a chancery suit. The pic
tures are expressionless, and of no great
merit; but there ia a richly enamelled
tire place, tho work of an Italian artist,
whoso method ot execution, Mr. Par
nell thinks, has become a lost art. Tbe
marble of this cluf d' autre is inlaid in
colored earths, delicately shaded and
twisted into fantastic festoons of flow
ers. A volume of Carlylo's Miscel
lanies lies on a table beside tho tire,
but ibe presence of tbis symptom of lile
is accounted for by tbe fact that one
of Mr. Parnoll's sisters from across tbe
Atlantic bas been residing for sotno
months undor her blotter's roof. Tho
drawing room bos been painted and
ornamented by tho same Italian artist
spoken of above, tho chtcl feature ot
the work being a number oi ctoverty
wrought medalions cent tuning sea
views. Various blue books are scat
tered about the apartment, having ref
erenco principally tn Irish mailers,
such as fisheries and agricultural re
turns. The library of Avondalo House is a
handsome square room, bookshelves
occupying every sido. There is scarcely
a modern work among these : but there
are many old call bound editions of
the classics, and a comprehensive col
lection 'ol all the English authors of
note Irom Piers Plowman downward.

family, but he is not a relalivo in the

nell is no great reader. 1 be only books
of recent dale, or of apparent recent
uso, to bo seen were a few novels and
about a doaon volumes relating to Ire
land, sucb as the Irish in America, and
some historicsof theoountry. "When
1 bave any leisure, I employ my time
in working out new mechanical con
trivances," said Mr. Parnell ; "and in
helninu to fit in its place the watererhoel
ol my sawmill, 1 nearly had ibis finger
cut oil, lilting up a inuen ai-anucu
finger. In tho oorner of the library is
a collection of old volunteer banners.

before the '08 Rebellion. Theso are
somewhat torn and disfigured, but the
first Land Leaguer takes much pride
in tbe.m, since they belonged lo bis
great grandlalbvr, wbo was colonel ol
ibe regiment. One of theso cnsignB
boars the following inscription : "In
d.-pendont Wicklow," with tho motto,
"Volox ot accr et fidelis amicis " and
an I risb wolfdog for a crest.
Above Avondalo House, and beyond
the amphitheatre of trees, is a clear
level space, which had been used oy
M r. Purnell'B (athcr as a cricket ground.
"My father was once the capluin of
the Eton eleven, observod M r. rar
nell, "and 1 was always very fond ol
cricket inysoll Dciore I tooa to pou
tics." From Ibis spot a view of sev
eral of the battlefields ot the Rebellion
is oblainod, with a magnificent sight
ot tbe Horry mountains and tbo waters
meeting in the Vale ol Avoca.
Mr. Parnell is very absiemiuus.drink
ing little but water or tea. Uu smokes
a great deal, and is never in want oi a
good "wacd," which be proffers vory
liberally to his friends. At the same
time bo keeps a neat little wine cellar,
and can, when the oovasion arises, ro
vale his guests witb a choico vinlago.
In other respects bis style ol living is
very homely. His only rotainera are
the venerable matron we have already
seen, and a man wbo looks after bis
horse, the garden and tbo general at
lairs of the bouse. In the intervals of
agitation he is a great rider, a moder
alely been sportsman, something of a
farmer, and ollen speaks Ol nimseii as
CilicinnatuB who baa been regrellolly
compelled lo relinquish his cabbages.
Mr. Parnell has alweys been a more or
less solitary man, seeing little company,
and leading rather an introspective
life. Ho bas plans and objects beyond
those which he has yet unfolded, but
he has no objection lo enter fully Into
a discussion ol tbe menu ol bis raee.
It Is noticeable thai be 1 roady to
catch up quickly and assimilate to bis
purpose any lact, Idea or phrase that
lion, or mentioned in newspapers.
With the comments of journalists
Mr. Parnell professes to bo' but little
acquainted, though be confesses to be
ing a tolerably close student of tho
Nutionul pross. His time is much oc
cupied, either in open warluro or in
friendly secret eonclnvos. Those ac
quainted with the body of mon whom
the agilator loads know that they form
tho nucleus of a new national party in
Ireland, one of whoso thief aims is to
eliminate the clerical elemont Irom
politics. "The North fear the priosis ;
without tho North any Nationalist
movumont must fail ; it tbe ecclesiasti
cal elemont can bo induced to confine
its energy to its own proper sphere, we
shull gain tho North ; and nothing can
then provent the restoration of Nation
al independonci," argues Mr. Parnell
and all bis lollowors. Mr. Parnoll says
he is prepared lo wait, and be will not
be satisfied wilb any attempts at re
medial legislation and approval.
One of Mr. Parnell's sisters has gain
ed some reputation as iho vrYiter ol
stirring nationalistic verses. "My sister
ul home with mo does not care very
much for poetry," observed Mr. Par
nell ; and, looking at this tall slender
man of thirty years, with the iron laco
of a livid hue, one could imagine that
there might bo moments in bis life
when bo also was indifferent to the
THE MAN WHO MADE THE
S TA NDARD OIL COM PA N Y.
John D. Rockefeller, the moving
spirit in tho Standard, and the man to
whoso indomitable Kill iu success is
largely duo, was poor twenty years
ago. He evidently studied tbe tactics
of Wado in making the Western Un
ion Telegraph Company, and Vander
bill in organizing bis great systems
of railroads. At any rale, he pursued
lo a certain extent tho same plan that
these men employed, and tbe same
thai Gould is now operating so largely
upon in forming his railroad schemes.
He saw tho oil business divided into a
score or more of hands hero, and none
ol'lhom making anything to speak of.
He organized and consolidated, and ;
the Standard wilb lU
power is tho result. -Mr. Jtockcluller s
wealth is variously estimated, but no
ono knows anything about its extent
exceptthat it is counted by tho millions.
Recently he conceived that his chil
dren should havo a larger play yard
about his Euclid, avenue home. Next
to him on the right stood a houso as
elegant as his own. He purchased it
and moved it to a vacant lot which he
bad purchased a block or two anuy
and is filling il up for a seminary,
while his children revel in their great-
freedom. Mr. Rotkeleller is tbo
directing head of the Standard. He
is a man of few words, of very short
ofllce hours, and does most of his work
at hi, residence, which is connected
with all purls of the world by tele

CURIOS-ITIES OF THE VOICE.
Dr. Delanay, in a paper read ro
oontly before the French Academy ol
Medicine, gives some details on mo
history aim limits of the human voice,
which he obtained al'ler much patient
research. According to tho doctor,
