THE GOLDEN GATE.
ou remember" the corn, Bell Blair,
That waved in the autumn breeze,
Like the peaceful flow of a mother's prayer,
Or the swell of the singing seas ?
And how, when the harvest time came on,
We hid in its golden sheaves,
To wait for the coming of gentle John
From under the low barn eaves ?
I am not ashamed that I loved John Dean,
For his heart was pure and true,
Though the flowers he culled in the spring time
Were always given to yon,
And you crushed them under your feet, Bell
As he lovingly turned away ;
But I gathered them up to my heart, and there
They are all a-bloom to-day.
Ah, well I remember the roses, borne
With his beautiful love for thee—
How he freed their stems of the faintest thorn
And the briers were given to me.
They are all I shall ever ask, Bell Blair,
For I know my brier will bloom
To a fragrant flower for my soul to wear, ,
For I smell its hushed perfume.
Sometimes when the shadowy mist uncurls
From the path my aonl will tread,
And the rose unfurls 'mid the eddying whirls
Of the snow around my :lead.
And now, when the harvest-time comes on
In heaven, I shall gladly wait,
And watch for the coming of angel John,
At the beautiful golden gate.
I heard Dow twice when I was a child.
He preached in Norwich, Conn., my native
place, Bear hill District, ten miles from his
own residence. The "old school house" or
"academy" which the Methodists used for
a church, was too small for the congrega
tion; they adjourned to the shade of an en_
ormous wide-spreading elm-tree that stood
on the "Green," as the public common was
popularly called. I remember it was wash
ing-day, probably Monday, and four o'clock
in the afternoon. Dow stood in his wag
on, and I eat, with a younger brother, on
a stone, at the foot of a horse-block, on
the women's side of the congregation. I
remember only one thing he said. A stout
young man had clambered up into the forks
of the branches and got to sleep over the
preacher's head, and snored so loudly as to
disturb the congregation. Dow looked up
in the midst of his sermon and said, "Take
care there, Zaccheus, or you will catch a
The next time I heard him was in the
"old school house," and I think on a cold
windy Sunday, either in the spring or fall
of the year, I cannot tell which. He re
proved some young ladies in the congrega
tion for tittering, one of whom afterwards
said, "It was too bad to make people laugh
in church and then scold them for it."—
There was no one to raise the tune, when
he began: "Waal," says Lorenzo, "if we
can have no singin' we'll have no prayin';"
and he plunged at once into his discourse.
At the conclusion, without singing, (pray
er, or benediction, he left the desk and
hurried from the church, leaving the con
gregation to follow at their leisure, jumped
into his wagon and drove off at a furious
rate. The high wind upset his Quaker
broad-brim, and it came rolling back into
the dispersing crowd, with Dow after on a
full run. There are few things in this
world more ridiculous than a man chasing
his hat on a windy day, and Dow's ap
pearance on this occasion, with his long
hair and beard streaming in the breeze,
provoked shouts of laughter from the
young men and boys.
Some years before this my father heard
him in Charleston, S. C., where he preach
ed in a Presbyterian pulpit, one of the old
fashioned tubs, twenty feet in the air. In
stead of ascending the stairs, Dow clam
bered up on the outside and shouted, "He
that entereth not in by the door in the
sheepfold,.but clitnbeth up some other way,
the same is a thief and a robber." Before
he began he pulled off the pulpit cushions,
of which he had a great abhorrence, and
threw them one side.
During one of his long peregrinations a
relative of his whom he exceedingly dis
liked, died. Dow heard it from a neighbor
as he neared home, and said, "Tell the
people there will be a funeral sermon in
my meeting house next Lord's day, at ten
o'clock." Dow's meeting-house was a
patch of woods near his own dwelling.—
Sunday came, and the woods were full.—
Dow took his stand and announced as his
text, "And the Lord set a mark upon Cain."
Such a handling as he gave the dubious
character of his dead relative was some
thing of a contrast to the eulogies usually
prcbounced upon such occasions.
When Jackson made his presidential
tour through the Eastern States, in 1833,
he passed near Dow's house. They were
friends of old, and Dow was a rabid Dem..
ocrat. He erected a hickory pole by the
side of the road, imbedded in clay, a no less
delicate compliment to the great Kentucky
orator than to the " hero of New Orleans."

e was prosecuted in the New London
County court in a protracted suit. On one
occasion, while the court was sitting at
Norwich Landing, be was asked to preach
in the Universalist Church at noon, while
the judges and attorneys took a recess for
dinner. He mounted a bench and proclaim
ed his own appointment. "I will preach
five minutes hence to as many as will fol
low me, in Hell's Insurance Office in this
city," and off he went with a crowd of men
and boys at his heels.
Dow engaged in the milling interest in
his latter days, and built his dam so high
that it set the water back upon the mill
race of his next neighbor up stream and
thus impeded the velocity and force of his
water power. For this he was prosecuted,
and after a long trial the cause went
against him. "Waal," says Lorenzo, "If
a man is a sinner, the sooner he repents
and reforms the better ;" and suiting the
action to the word, he went home, assem
bled his hands and cut down the dam.—
The water suddenly breaking loose, caused
immense damage to those lower down the
stream. Dr. Fisk used this as a happy
illustration of the result of immediate abo
lition, irrespective of consequences.
In hie latter itinerating tour he was of
ten accompanied by the daughter of his
second wife, an accomplished young lady,
afterward the wife and widow of a Meth
odist preacher. The second Mrs. Dow
was an estimable woman, well off in the
world, and perfectly free from the eccen
tricities of her pious predecessor, the im
mortal "Peggy."—Christian Advocate.
Prince Napoleon and the Old Soldier.
Last evening there occurred one of those ,
rare incidents in the progress of Prince
Napoleon's tour through the United States,
which will not soon be forgotten by our il
lustrious visitor, albeit the tender recollec
tions thereof may not be of long duration
with one of the parties interested, whose
gray hairs will ere long be moistened by
the clammy dews of death.
Lorenz Harte, a relic of the Grand
Army of the first Napoleon, now an inmate
of the Cook County Poor-House, had an
interview with Prince Napoleon. County
Agent Hansen, learning the wish of the
old soldier, kindly conveyed him to the
Tremont. His card was sent to the
Prince's apartments, and the old man,
bowed down with the weight of eighty
years, was ushered into the august pres-
The Prince arose to receive his remark
able guest. There they stood for a mo
ment looking each other in the face—the '
second heir to the French Crown, and the
sacred and bronzed veteran of a score of
battles. Advancing, the Prince grasped
the old man's hand, and conducting him
to a seat, spoke so kindly that the veteran's
heart overflowed, and he burst into tears. I
To those at all acquainted with the his
tory of the Napoleonic dynasty, neither
the kindness of the Prince nor the emo
tion of the old soldier will be wondered at.
All such well know the remarkable power
that the First Napoleon held upon the'af
feetions of his soldiers, as well as the wild
and uncontrollable idolatry mainifested by
the latter toward the former, upon all oc
casions, whether in victory or defeat.
In that interview, yesterday, the veter
an "fought his battles o'er again." The
Prince questioned him, and listened with
glistening eyes to tbe recital of those thrill
ing incidents which ever had as their hero
The quick eye of the Prince noticed the
absence of three fingers from one of the
"Where did you lose your fingers?"
"In the retreat from Moscow. I was at
tached to the cavalry, and in one of the
chafges of those villainous Cossacks, a
stroke from a lance deprived me of my
fingers. But," and the old veteran's eye
shone with the old battle-light, "my sa
bre finished him, sire. Ab those Cossacks
were the most splendid horsemen that I
ever saw, but they were afraid of Murat's
cavalry, after all." And the old soldier's
mind wandered back to that terrible re
treat from the burning capital of the Rus
sians, surrounded by the inflexible rigors
of a Russian Winter, and harassed day
and night by those furious onsets of Cos
sack cavalry—those wild and daring chil
dren of the plains.
"This, sire, was done at Lodi," exhibit
ing a terrible scar upon the left shoulder,
made by a grape-shot.
"And this," bearing the calf of his left
leg, showing the track of a bullet through
and through it, was done at Arcola."
"This sabre cut upon my head was re
ceivedat Austerlitz, and so was this, sire,"
tenderly holding, up the Cross of the Le
gion of Honor, bestowed upon him by Na
poleon for special servive on that bloody
And thus the old battle-scarred veteran
whiled away two pleasant hours—hours
fraught with proud and tender recollections
by both Prince and soldier ; and when the

The Evening Pm, in an article on
"Young Blood," says that too many mis
fortunes have occurred in our own and
other nations' histories from the employ
ment of generals in whom the fire and en
ergy of youth had burned out, to permit
us, in the present emergency to hazard
victory in this way. Many of Napoleon's
most overwhelming successes were obtain
ed when he was opposed by such men a's
Beaulieu, who was then eighty years of
age, Wurmser, an octogenarian, and Al-
vinsi, who was over seventy, in the cam
paign of 1796. These men had all distin
guished themselves in early life, but they
had now lost that youthful promptitude
and activity which are absolutely essen
tial for military commanders. It is curi
ous to follow up this list a little further.—
In 1800 the Austrians had for comman
der-in-chief, Melas, an old general of the
Seven Years' War, who had been fifty
years in the army, and was no longer able
or efficient. In 1805 the French were op
posed by Mack, then fifty-three, and
Kutusoff, sixty. The plan of operations
was drawn up by a council of generals
more aged still, who took no active part in
the campaign. In 1806 Napoleon beat
the Duke of Brunswick, then seventy-one,
Hohencohe, aged sixty, and Mollendorf,
Kleist. and Massenbach, generals who had
served under Frederick the Great ; men,
says Jomini, "exhumed from the Seven
Years' War, whose faculties were frozen
by age." In 1807 the Allies still sent
against Napoleon and his young and vig
orous officers, such men as Kamenski,
aged eighty, Benningsen, sixty, and Bux
howden, fifty-six. But in 1809 the Austri
an army was led by the young and ener
getic Archduke Charles, and though he
was fettered and thwarted by the "foolish
projects of the old generals of the Aulic
Councils," this campaign proved the most
glorious in the Austrian annals of the
wars of the Revolution. In subsequent
campaigns the Allies were led by younger
men, who proved themselves more nearly
a match for Napoleon. Alexander of
Russia was only thirty-five when he head
ed his army in 1812; and he surrounded
himself with young officers and placed as
commanders of his divisions such men as
Archduke Constantine. then thirty-three,
and Shouvaloff, thirty-five. The Austri_
ans were led by Schwartzenberg, then
thirty; the Prussians by York, Bulow, and
by Blucher, who, thongh himself ad
vanced in life, had the wit to surround
himself with young and energetic aids, to
whose enterprise he gave full rein. Wel
lington was of the same age as Napoleon,
and in the last campaign of the Emperor it
is well known that most of Wellington's
I officers were younger men than Napoleon's,
who, says a military writer, "exhibited in
this campaign less than in former ones the
ardent energy and restless activity which
had characterized their younger days."—
The same authority continues: "Never
were Napoleon's plans bitter conceived,
never did his troops fight with greater
bravery ; but the dilatory movements of
his generals enabled his active enemies to
parry the blow intended for their destruc
tion." Most of our disasters in the war of
1812 we owed to the inefficiency of such
old veterans of the Revolution as Hull,
Armstrong, Winchester, Dearborn and
Wilkinson, men who had once done good
service, but were now deficient in every
thing but the desire to take the field once
more. It was not till they were set aside,
and such men as Scott, Wool, Jackson,
Harrison and others appointed, that our
armies achieved victories. Scott himself
was Major-General at twenty-eight, and it
is noticeable that in the present war the
eyes of the people are turned with most
hope upon such men as McClellan, Fre
' mont, Butler, Banks and Rosecrans, men
who are yet in the vigor of their days.
In 1820. on the anniversary of Koaci
usko's death, General Pezkowski laid the
foundation of the Kosciusko monument
with a barrowful of earth and bones
brought from the battle-field of Rackla
, wice. He next deposited in a marble cof-
fin the bust of the Polish chief with his
biography, and placed by its side an urn
containing some of the earth from the
field of Maciejowice where Kosciusko
, "fell." Then the spectators who had as
sembled in tens of thousands, all ~ ,on!-
! tributed to raise the mound, which is about
one hundred and twenty feet high and a
half a quarter of a mile round the base.—
This is just what the Austrians wanted.
. "Kosciusko's Tomb" had been erected on
highest ground, and the Poles might see
it from afar, and that from its summit the
INTERESTING SCENE.-it the last

be for a military position? Accordingly,
the Austrians proceeded to wall it in and
fortify it, and the tumulus of the Polish
patriot is now one of the chief strongholds
of the army which occupies Cracrow.

Sketch of 001. John W. Geary.
Col. J. W. Geary, of our State, who
commanded the Federal troops in the
fight near Harper's Ferry, has figured
extensively in recent national events.
He commanded the second regiment
of Pennsylvania Volunteers in Mexi
ico, and was noted for great firmness
and, the rigid discipline to which he
subjected his men. When he first
went to war in that unfortunate re
public, he was Lieut. Col. of Roberts'
regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers,
and at the battle of Chepultepec:
where he held chief command of his
regiment, was wounded, but not
withstanding led his men in the ter
rific battle fought at the de Balen
gate just previous to the capture of
the city of Mexico. For his gallant
ry on that occasion he was promoted
to the rank of Colonel, his commis
sion hearing date of November 3d.
1847. He received special mention
at Cerro Gordo. After the war, in
1848. he lived in San Francisco, of
which place he was appointed Post
master, and was afterward elected
the first Mayor of the city, holding
his office for two or three terms prior
to the organization of the Vigilance
Committee. He was afterwards Gov
ernor of Kansas under the Buchanan
The Arrest of Judge Merrick.
WASHINGTON, October 22.—Judge
Merrick, to-day, sent a letter to his
brother Judges of the Circuit Court,
relative to his arrest, which grew out
of procoedings concerning a writ ha
beas corpus case. Soldiers guard him
in his own house as a prisoner. It
should be stated that the above
named cause of arrest is the general
impression, though nothing positive
is known upon the subject, and it
may be for some other reason. The
Court to-day made an order citing
General Porter to appear and show
cause why he had oideFed the arrest
of Judge Merrick, and thus obstructed
the course of justice.
Discontent Among the Rebels.
WASHINGTON CITY, Oct. 23.—Relia
ble information from Virginia, con
firms the stories of discontent and
murnwrings not only in the camp,
but among all classes at the manage
ment of affairs by the Southern gov
ernment, which, while it subjects them
to continued sacrifices and privations,
brings no advantages in retura. It
is believed that, but for the overaw
ing presence of the Southern army,
Eastern Virginia would now be ready
to return to. her loyalty. Many evi
dences of satisfaction and signs of
welcome are displayed by the inhab
itants of Louden county towards the
newly arrrived troops of Gen. Banks.
It is well undepstood- that the re
ports of the intended interference with
our blockade by European powers,
are, for the most part, the inventions
of cotton brokers or those who wish
to engage in the same business;
for it. S. B. Crittenden, Esq., said
he would give one hundred dollars.—
Mr. Dodge then said he would take
it at one hundred and fifty dollars,
and it finally went into his hands
The meeting next year is to be held
at Springfield, Mass.
Bread Riot in Paris.
The high price of bread continued, at
last accounts, to claim attention at Paris
and the Government had issued an assur
ance that the price should not be ft.rther
advanced. On the Ist of October, in the
Fanbourg St. Antaine, there was an as
sault made upon the bakers' shops. Of
course there was a large assemblage of
withered old women with their heads tied
in fierce colored handkerchiefs, who were
more violent than the men: and Jezebel,
seeing a heavy sort of stick used by butch
ers to make tough meet tender, knocked
down and killed an unfortunate police
man. Things were then considered bad
enough for a more powerful interference
than that of a handful ofsargeants de vllie,
who were getting badly handled, and the
troops quartered in that division of Paris
were got under arms. The tumult then
died out, for it will be long before a disor
ganized rabble again attempts to struggle
against the military. The Paris improve
ments have put an extinguhisher on the
head of King Mob, who, in case of a dec
laration of hostilities on his part against
the powers that be, would find himself out
flanked on every side, and the troops
handled in a very different manner than
that by which Marmont lost. Paris.

BRIGADE—ACCIDENT.—The brigade com

Sirwell's. Col, Hambrigbt's, and another
regiment., the name of whose Colonel has

five or six• steamboats, at Pittsburgh, on
Friday last, and started to Louisville, Ky.

the stage plank of the stea.merJ. W. Hail
man. and was killed. The soldiers on the
hurricane deck of the Sir William Wallace,
rushed to one side of the roof to see what
was the matter, and the weight was so great
that the floor gave way precipitating a
large number of the brave boys to the cab
in and boiler decks, severely wounding
several of them. However all were
able to be taken with the expedition ex

their friends and physicians, are likely to

At last he wrote him that he must come ;
that be had a large amount of threshing
to do; that he could not afford to hire help

very glad to help you, but Uncle Sam has
got a mighty sight bigger job of threshing
on hand than you have, and I'm bound to
see him out of the woods first."

with Col. Geary, at Boliver, Va., is Col.
Turner Ashby, of Fauquier not Dick
