D. Jose, the lieutenant, good humoredly tried
once or twice, to dispel these by appearance of

aame lime the usual improvidence of sailors
snd at my suggestion, they were afterward pro

which for some time confined me to my bed.
' During the firVt attack,' 1 had refused the ser

have saved my life. The first of these the doc.

been in my father's bouse, it would hsve been
impossible for me to receive mote minute atten

Governor of the province to send us all to the

Connecting the purpose of the messenger wild
the anticipated arrival of Psrede. Having just
lesrned that the army of General Scot! had com

would shows more intimate connection of the

Mr. Wright wss born in the town of Am

farther was a tsnner,' currier and shfcemsker,
who was spprentieed tni his'tMde st'ati esrly
see'. Snri never was nl s'rbool In 'bls'jife.,'! His
fellow journeymen tsnpht him tn teart and
wr', nd to keep accounts, lie removed to
Vermont, became a farmer, married,, and his
Wife completed the education' thst hia fellow
journey men began. , , Silas, his son, was one of!
a family of nine children., nearly all of whom
are farmers snd farmers' wives, residing in
Vermont. In his ynulh, he. I ike most, of the
rising youth in New Eoslund, attended . the
common schools in winter, and worked on the
term in summer, until he had passed his four
teenth year, when he was placed at an acade
my, that he might be prepared to enter college.
In Aumist, 11 1; young Silas became a student
of the college at Middlrbwry, Vermont, where
he remained until ihnstunrrerol 1815, when he
received the first degree of Bachelor of Arts.
In January, 1819, Mr. Wright completed hia
preparatory legal studies, snd was' licensed to
prsclice ss sn attorney of th Supreme Court
of New York. In October following he remo
ved to Canton, in the county of St. I jwrence,
an opened an office. Hi superior talents, ad
ded to the universal kindliness in his disposition
snd msnners, soon made bim highly popular.
In 1W0 he wss tiominsted and elected to Con
press.' He wss comptroller of the StateofNew
York while at Washington. In 1S32 he was
elected U.S. Senator to sneered Mr. Marcy;
was re-elected in 1837. ' After the close of the
27th session of Coogre, Mr. Wright was cal
led to preside over the State of New York, and
at the election of November, 1944, received the
largest number of votes .ever cast ' in the State
(or one individual. In 1910 he was succeeded
by the preneht incumbent, tliivi Voii'ngj 'The
Democratic Review speaks of his manner and
character in the nations! councils,' aa follows.' '
"There' isMri all' the movements of Mr.
Wright art air bt quietness and 'resolution, of
modesty 'end mildness, 'which is generally
found in a public speaker who feels an unshaken
etHifidewee in his intellectual strength and in
the justice of hi cause. When be rose, the
opposition became profoundly attentive, because
they knew that he puasesssd the entire confi
dence of the Executive, and therefore that what
ever revelations he might make were to be re
garded ss authentic and conclusive. It waa
evident, fn a few moments after he had risen,
that he had prepared himself fully; snd that he
would be able to present the truth with simpli
city without hesitation or the least affectation.

Miner, of Wi'kesUrre, in his published ac
counts or his first eflurts, .in connection with
.Mr. Cist, and nthet associates, relates some
pleasant anecdotes. -, On the 0th tf August,
114, they started off their first ark from Mauch
Chunk. (. 'In less lbs n 80 rods ftpm, the place
ofstsHin, the ark struck on. a ledge, and broke
a hole In her bow. The lads stripped them
selves nearly naked, to stop the rush of water
with their cjothea.". In six days, however, the
ark reached philadelphis, with its 24 tons of
eosl, which had by this time cost $14 a .too.
"But," says Mr. Miner, 'we had tho gresten
difficulty to overcome of inducing the public to
use nor cosl, when brought to their doors."
"We published handbills, in English and
German, ststing the mode of burning the coo',
cither In grates, Jn smiths' forges, or in stoves.
Together we went to several bouses in the ci
ty, snd prevailed on'the masters to allow us to
kindle fires of anthracite in their grates, erected
to burn Liverpool cosl. ' We attended at black
smith's shops,, and pretailed upon some to alter
the Too iron, so that they might burn the Le
high coal; snd we were sometimes obliged to,
bribe the journeyman to try the experiment, so
sverse were they to learn tho use of a new sort
of fuel."., .
How like a fsblo nil tbis seems at the pre

think of no other, how little do we realize that

could not float an ark load of the coal to Phila

in millions of tonal . . .
( In "the Schuylkill regions tho effort waa
made a little earlier. . In 1814, Col. Geo. Shoe
maker loaded nine wagons with coal at the
place now knpwn as the Cer.treville Mines, and
proceeded, to Philadelphia. "Much time wss
spent by him in endeavoring to introduce il to
notice, but all hia efforta proved unavailing.
Those who deigned tq try.it, declared Col. Shoe-
maker to be an importer for attempting to im
pose atone on tbem for coal, and wereclamcrooa
againat him. Not discouraged by the sneers
cast npon him, he persisted ih the undertaking,
and at Inst succeeded in disposing nf two loads,
for the cost of transportation, and Ibe remaining
sewn he gave to persons, who promised to try
to use it, snd lost all tho coal and charges."
