What He Was and What He Is The De

A NOTABLE STATE BALL IN PARIS.
Who Were There and AVhat the Ladles
Were A Heuse Fired Thirteen Times
in One Nlcht New Solution of
the "Gem Puzzle."
Seme time age a paragraph appeared in
one of our Northern newspapers te the
effect that the ex-president of the Southern
Confederacy (Jeff. Davis) had heen saying,
or writing, something en the subject of
tramps, in which he had suggested the
term " vagrant " as the most appropriate
term by which te designate these peculiar
people. But, whether it was because the
term "Tramp" was tee degraded or tee
exalted te be applied te them is new net
clear te us, because the paper somehow
disappeared before we could get an oppor
tunity te re-read the paragraph. We
think, however, there were some caviling
comments en the paragraph that perhaps
almost any ether writer would net have
elicited, se " snake-bitten " has the man
man become in the eyes of many of his
Northern fellow-citizens. In any event,
however, it would be a great pity if Jeffer Jeffer
eon Davis were te espouse the cause of
the people popularly styled tramps; for it
would only consign them te a deeper in
famyjustly or unjustly than new at
taches te them. And, it probably would
be as great a pity if he were te assail tr
persecute them, for this might only dan
gerously enhance them in the opinion of
these who entertain for his utterances
only feelings of unmitigated contempt.
Although there seems te be but a slight
difference between the dictionary inter
pretations of tramp, vagrant or vagabond,
still, the first-named are by no means the
kind of people we understood as tramps in
the days of our boyhood, say from lifty te
sixty years age, and even down te a later
date. Therefore, whatever Jeffersen Davis's
opinion may be, we are in entire harmony
with these who believe that the term
vagrant or vagabond should be applied te
this contraband class, and net that of
tramp, and for the following reasons : Web
ster concisely defines " vagrant, " as one
who strolls from place te place ; an idle
wanderer ; one who ha no settled habita
tion, or who does net abide in it; a vagabond.
And "vagabond" as one who wanders
from town te town or place te place, hav
ing no certain dwelling or net abiding in
it ; and usually without the means of an
honest livelihood a vagrant. Webster
appends the following note : " A vagabond
is said te be a person who, without travel
ing in quest of a domicile, has really and
truly no domicile at all." In English and
American law vagabond is always used in
a bad sense, denoting one who is without a
home ; a strolling, idle, worthless person.
Vagabonds are described in old English
statutes as "such as wake en the night
and sleep en the day, and haunt custom
able taverns and ale houses and rout about ;
and no man wet from whence they come
or whither they go." Iu American law
the term vagrant is employed in the same
The reader will perceive hew nearly this
mildly defines the modern tramp. We say
mildly, because a severer definition would
include incendiarism, assaulters and tcrri
fiers of defenseless men, women and chil
dren, spring house and chicken-coop rob
bers, foet-padism and insolent mendicancy.
All maynet be of this character, but these
characteristics largely pervade the class.
Webster also briefly defines tramp as a
feet traveler or a tramper, and tramperene
who tramps, a stroller, a vagrant or vaga
bond. New, at the period te which we have re
ferred fifty or sixty years age no such
meanings as vagabond or vagrant were at
tached te the term tramp, as the repre
sentative of a class ; or, if it was, it must
have been only in exceptional cases in
deed, the term was net considered disre
putable. What the dictionaries may have
said en this subject we de net knew ; the
term, however, may have undergone some
change in its meaning, te accommodate it
te the disreputable class who new prowl
throughout the country under the modern
appellation of tramp. In our early days,
and perhaps long anterior te our time,
every boy who learned a trade expected te
become a tramp for a longer or shorter
period, before he settled down for life.
This may net have been the case in all ec
cupatiens, nor yet with all who followed
the same occupation. Perhaps the most
numerous of these tramps or trampers,
were te be found among the journeymen
hatters, tailors, printers and cerdwainers,
and they glerjed in the name of
tramp, often te the envy of these who
were deprived of the opportunity te be
come a tramp. The very term journey
man seemed te imply one who journeyed,
or tramped from place te place in pursuit
of his lawful calling. If an apprentice in
dulged in any yearnings for the expiration
of his term of service, it was that he might
have an opportunity te enjoy the luxuries
of a "jelly tramp." This desire was fanned
into a flame, and kept burning by the re
citals of the tramping "jeurs " who were
periodically coming and going, se that no
two seasons passed with the same set of
hands in the same shop except in a few
special cases and many were the queer
and exciting adventures they related. The
tramps of that period were such te all in
tents and purposes, for then there were no
canals and railroads, and the limited num
ber of coach-routes and the high rates of
fare did net afford the facilities of later
days, se that they were obliged te travel
en feet. The introduction, of the public
improvements and the altered modes of
conducting business gradually innovated
the remance of tramping. Except in
the larger seaboard towns and cities,
there was very little ready-made work
kept en hand for sale, se that tramps
could always find an abundance of em
ployment during eight or nine months of
the year. But the tramps of these days, as
a class, were neither indolent, objectless,
nor vagrant. As a general thing they had
their homes, te which they returned for
recreation during 'the dull season, and
only tramped from place te place in
pursuit of employment. Indeed in Europe
custom made it a law of the " craft " for
every young man, after the expiration of
his apprenticeship, te tramp for two years
before he was thought worthy of patron
age as a master workman. But we move
se much faster in America that before this
system was properly initiated here it be
came obsolete. Therefore, little in the
foregoing definition of the term tramp ap
plies te the tramps of our early days, ex
cept that they were " feet travelers."
It is true that tramping became a per
fect mania te some, and like the "wander
ing Jew," they never seemed te be at rest ;
but still they worked by times. They were
neither vagrants nor vagabonds, and if
perohance they become "strap'd," they
applied te their own special craft for a
" lift." There were many honorable
tramps, who continued te be tramps after
the introduction of steamboats, canals and
railreals, but they availed themselves of
these facilities of transit instead of tramp
ing afoot ; but the concentration of the
business of the country in larger towns,
and the immense stocks of ready-made
work kept en hand, have almost entirely
displaced local or rural tramping.
But even in the palmy days of tramping,
there were afnw "bogus" tramps frauds,
imposters. There were also a few " hard
cases," and these remained such until
their ' day and generation" passed way.
Notwithstanding the great revolutions in
our domestic and social order, there are
yet many tramps as the term was practi
cally understood half a century age, but
its application te the wcieus and shiftless
read lazareni of the present day, which
seems te enjoy a monopoly of the term,
must lead te its repudiation by all imbued
with self respect, for there seems te be no
such thing new as shaking off the obloquy
which attaches te the name of Tramp.

A State Ball in Paris.
Lucy II. Heeper's Letter.
The second ball of the season (some sav
the la'st) took place at the Elysee last
night. The usual demand for tickets was
answered by a very generous bestowal en
the Americans in Paris, and the ball was
all the mere brilliant for the many fair
faces of our countrywomen and their ele
gant toilettes. The exterior of the palace
was brilliantly illuminated with gas-jets,
set in a framework of pyramidal form or
running in a line along the cornice of the
outer facade. Within the courtyard blazed
stars and ether devices of gas, making the
whole place as light as day. The cloak
rooms were situated in the spacious vesti
bule, and were se arranged that neither
crowding nor confusion was possible.
Servants in plain dark liveries were in
waiting at the head of the short staircase
leading up te the reception rooms and draw
ing rooms. In the first of the series was
stationed the president, with Mme. and Mile
Grevy, the former wearing a very elegant
toilet of black and orange trimmed with
black lace, and the latter in pure white.
Nothing can be imagined mere winning
and hospitable than is the frank and genial
manner of M. Grevy, wlje bids his guests
welcome with the kindly grace of a host
who is net merely performing a social duty
but who is happy in giving his friends en
joyment. This impression is doubtless
aided by the peculiar charm of his expres
sion, and the almost feminine witchery of
his smile. But one is net permitted te
speak with, or even te take mere than a
glance at, the presidential party, as the
pressure of incoming guests forces each
group of new arrivals onward. Then we
wander through the long series of brilliantly-lighted
and rapidly-filling rooms ; some
hung with fine old Gebelin tapestry,ethers
panelled with mirrors painted with wreaths
of flowers, and, if fortunate, we penetrate
even te the sacred prccints of the Salen re
serve, with draperies and furniture of crim
son and geld brocade. Everywhere there are
flowers in profusion, with moon-like lamps
placed amid their verdure upon tables and
conselas. The crowd continues te increase
and the heat grows stifling. We miss the
vast temporary rooms of olden days, which,
if they were dangerous te the health, at
least afforded a chance for ventilation and
a refuge te these who were net afraid of
fresh air. But in all that spacious palace,
with its thousands of gas-jets, and the
dense throng crowding its halls, there is net
a single window open by se much as a
hair's breadth. The guests speedily be
come half suffocated some ladies faint
ethers stoically endure the oppressive at
mosphere, and finally become accustomed
te it. There are a geed many elegant toi
lettes, the Duchesse de B appearing in
a heavy silk of the new and fashionable
lilac, beautifully adorned with designs in
silver embroidery. Mme. Jaureguiberry,
the wife of the minister of marine, was in
black velvet trimmed with scarlet geran
iums. The lovely wife of the Persian am
bassador, Nazaritga, were a rich toilette of
white and geld and a profusion of dia
monds. A very superb dress was in white
satin, with beuffane train, at each side of
which was a revers of black velvet, cover
ed with fine Duchesse point. Anether very
charming dress had the train entirely cov
ered with fine point a l'aiguille flounces,
held down at the sides by clusters of white
and purple lilacs. The front of the skirt
was covered with narrow plaited flounces
of white satin. A very rich toilet was
composed of garnet velvet, with a train of
salmon-colored satin edged with a narrow
flounce lined with garnet velvet. The
front of the skirt was covered with a wide
overskirt of salmon colored satin, drawn
up at one side and fastened with a knot
of the satin ; low-necked and short
sleeved corsage of velvet trimmed with
satin folds. Anether velvet dress of a
dark myrtle green hue was simply and
elegantly adorned with draperies formed of
wide point-lace flounces, arranged scarf
wise en the skirt. Among the Americans
present were General Fairchild, our new
minister te Spain, Mr. R. R. Hitt, our
charge d'affaires at Paris, Mr and Mrs.
Rebert Heeper and Miss Heeper, Mr. and
Mrs. Moorhouse, Miss Marie Yanzant,
Miss Stevenson, Miss Eakin and Mr.
Eakin, Mrs.Westingheuse, Mr., Mrs. and
Miss Bates, Mr., Mrs. and Miss Gainey,
Mrs. and the Misses Moses, Mrs. Mac
knight, Paymaster Leeker, of the United
State navy, Xieutenant Bixby, the Hen.
Leander Riddle, of Delaware, and many
ethers tee numerous te mention. The
police arrangements were perfect ; there
was no crowding or disorder and
no undue waiting for the carriages.
I must net fail te mention the
toilette worn by Miss Yanzant, wholeoked
exceedingly charming in a dress of white
crape and satin, the skirt being ornament
ed with a scarf of point lace confined with
clusters of pale pink rose, and the high
corsage trimmed with roses and ruffles of
lace, te correspond with the garnitures of
the skirt. The beauty of our fair young
prima denna attracted much attention.
The American beauty about whom the Pa
risian papers are raving, Mmc. Gautherot,
was present en the occasion. She is from
New Orleans, and was formerly a Mile.
Avignon. She is certainly very beautiful,
her features wholly classic, her form tall,
slender, and finely proportioned, but she is
nowise mere handsome than hundreds of
American belles that I have seen at home.
Moreover, she di esses in tee theatrical
style for perfect elegance. The ball was
pronounced te be one of the most brilliant
that has ever been given at the Elysee.
Fired Thirteen Times in a Sight.
a very Lively
Time of it.
Francisce Call, in a recent
issue, says : Brooklyn is stirred by an im
mense excitement generated by the mys
terious and repeated attempts of an incen
diary te fire the dwelling house of Andrew
Baird, en Monday night. In all, thirteen
attempts were made, and though some
destruction was effected, the less fell
short of what the incendiary evidently
intended, and fertuntely did net result in
less of life. The building in which Mr.
Baird, with his wife and three children,
mother-in-law. sister-in-law, servant named
Mrs. Broderick, nurse girl and Chinese
cook, lived is a one-story structure
with several additions. A few reds dis
tant from the dwelling house steed a
barn, well filled with hay. Here the first
fire was lighted early Monday evening. The
barn was quickly destroyed. During the con
flagratien another barn caught flre from
the flames of the burning building. The
latter fire was no sooner extinguished than
the attention of these who had been fight
ing the flames was attracted by a blaze in
a row of gum trees near the house. Jeseph
Parker, a neighbor, who was assisting the
Baird family ran te the trecs,and found one
of them an old dead eucalyptus in
fiames. The tree was se situated that
there was little chance that the fire from it
could be communicated te the dwelling, as
the adjoining trees were green and would
net burn. The supposition is that the in
cendiary had ignited it in the hope that it
would draw oil' the attention of the fire
in the large barn until the latter was
Ne sooner had Mr. Parker satisfied him
self that there was no danger from the
burning tree than a cry of fire was raised
in the dwelling house eMr. Baird, where
flames were seen issuing from the cellar.
These were promptly extinguished by wet
sacks, when smoke was seen issuing from
the bed room of the servant, Ellen Bro
derick. While this fire, which had been
kindled in the bedding, was being put out,
a volume of smoke came peurinir forth
from the sleeping room of Mrs. Baird, en
the same fleer, where the bed and two
children's cribs were in a blaze. Wet
sacks were again used, and the flames
smothered, when the cry of lire was heard
again in the servants' room, where a quan
tity of clothing had been ignited. On
seeing the burninir clothing. Hannah, the
nurse girl, fainted. While the attention
of the company was being devoted te the
girl, a thiid lire broke out in the servants'
room, another let of combustibles having
been mysteriously ignited. The flames
were seen extinguished, but the work of
the fire fiend continued, and fresh alarms
came from all ever the dwelling. Seme of
the weed work in Mrs. Baird's room be
came unaccountably ignited, a fire broke
out in the bath room, and seen after a cot
bed in a room adjoining the bath room
was found te be in flames.
As the night of excitement were away
and daylight appeared, another fire broke
out in a bed room adjoining the bath-room.
This was speedily extinguished. About
this time the Biederick woman was seen
te come from her room, where she had
locked herself in, and a few moments later
smoke was seen coming from a bureau near
by, whose contents were found te be in a
blaze. The flames were readily put out,
and a close watch placed ever the Broder
ick woman, who was charged with having
been the mysterious fire-fiend of the night.
The mystery of the affair is that while
there were in all 13 different fires, no one,
as far as has yet been learned, except the
Chinaman in the family, saw any person
kindle them. The Chinaman declares that
he saw Mrs. Broderick kindle one of the
last of the fires, During Monday night
and Tuesday morning, when the fires oc
curred, she was intoxicated. The precise
manner in which the incendiary kindled
the firflqtis net known. Seme of these who
helped te put out the flames declared that
the whole house smelled of kerosene.
The only evidence of its use, however,
was in the cellar, where an empty
kerosene can and a broken lamp were
found. There seems little doubt, how
ever, that the incendiary was some person
living in the house. The family used a
peculiar kind of matches, such as are net
in common use, and some of these were
found near the places where the several
fires were discovered. There was in the
house en old file of a San Francisce paper,
and portions of copies of this were also
found near the places where the incendiary
attempts were made. The sheriff was
notified of the affair, and arrested Mrs.
Boderick. who will be examined before
Justice Matthews, of B:eiklyn. The less,
principally the barn and hay, is estimated
