Stevens has never been popular or influ
ential at home. He had some merit as a
country court lawyer; apt in presenting .
his strong points in a jury trial, and in de
tecting the weak points of an _adversary.
But he was incapable of addressing the
court in a law argument of any depth of
reasoning or of any extended research or
reflection. As a jurist, his standing was ,
always low in the profession ; as a logical
debater, be had no standing at . all. His
oratory in of the declamatory style—of
the denunciatory type.. He does not re
semble Demosthenes ' except in speaking
as if pebbles were in his throat to implit
a certain lugubrious profundity to his ut
terance, and to inspire, by his cavernous
tones, a sort of solemn awe into his audi
ence. It is his manner, his gestiCulation,
his appalling seriousness, when urging
some measure decidedly outrageous, that
command attention. The subetancl of
his discourse itself is devoid of pith, and,
dull to all of any discernment. This is
obvious in every debate, whenever taken
to- task by the second rate men 'of his
party. He.ought never to attempt a set
speech, to convince or persuade, in Con
gress, for he invariably fails ; but to threat
en and command his weak-kneed breth
ren. he is terrible, invincible, and never
tails. He is now an old man,
or two almanacs of eighty. He was born
in Vermont—a State whit& the late ate
pben A. Douglas always said was a very
good State to be born in ; and, therefore,
like the Little Giant, be soon left it.'
lforethen half a century ago, Stevens
emigrated to Pennsylvania. Opposed to

bad passion,. He was generous, manly,
unpretending and courteous; generally in
good humor to amuse, with .some happy
but severe hit on any body who thwarted
him. He could as readily detect a weak
point or vulnerable Peouithrity in charac
ter is discover a flaw In an indictment,sod
by a frowning look or telling epi gramma- .

not soon to be forgotten. But when rag
ing with latent wrath, his terse exPes.-
lions were terrible, sparing neither friend
or foe: Hu scathing sarcasm, delivered in
subdued simplicity, was charming to all.l
except the hapless victim. His public
speeches were full of hideous irony at'
mock pretensions to political and moral
;honor. honesty and conscience; until his
party believed from his phillippics that be
by way of contrast, must be in his own
person the embodiment of all the cardi
nal virtues. They bad.yet to learn that he
did not so much despise the dishonest
among his opponents as he detested the
timid in his own party. In an evil hour
for the State be became Canal Commis
sioner, in order to promote the re-election
of Governer Shaer. Then his political

inblushing impudence at eleetions

hood; ballot boxes: were' filled with ten
times the usual quantity of tickets ; in
some counties heretofore nearly divided
between the two parties, now majorities
were returned much larger than the whole
number of their taxable population. It
was anticipated by Stevens that these vig
orous tactics- in certain localities would
overwhelm the opposition strength ih oth
er portions of the State. But he was mis
taken. The full 'returns indicated the
election of the Democratic candidate for
Governor by more than ten thousand ma
jority. It was then determined by a des
perate expedient to retain the control of
both branches of the Legislature, and
thereby possess unlimited power over the
public revenues, with its corresponding.
influence and prestige. The Shnate was
already Anti-Masonic; but of the mem
bers elected to the House a small majority
was the other way. To this state
of thingirit was agreed that the Secretary
of State should, on a slight informality,
ignore the true returns from the county
of Philadelphia, giving ' the certificate of
election to the Democratic members, and
that he should substitute another return
designating the minority candidates as
elected. By this scheme Stevens would
have a majority in that body. Thus, with
both branches of the Legislature under
his guidance, the Democratic Governor
soon to be inaugurated would be power
'leas. No one donbted that the Democrat
ic candidates in Philadelphia county had a
large and decided majority of the votes at
the election. Indeed . . Stevens did not
controvert the fact, but contended that
the return of a majority of election judgL
es was not according to lb,w, while the
other return was in due form, and must
prima facie, prevail until otherwise order
ed by the House. The informality consist
ed in the judges retaining . the document
for one day in their possession,
while the law provided that the return
whetrsigned must be the same evening
transmitted by mail to the Secretary of
State. _ _

When the time approached for the
meeting of the L. gislature, it was evident
ter üble would ensue if this mad purpose
was pursued. -A 'sat crowd assembled at
the seat of government. and threats were
openly made that such a' wrong on the
popular will would be resisted. Yet the
Secretary of State persisted, and gave
the certificate of electiot. to the defeated
candidate from the county of Philadea
phis. ,Therenpen a Steven's Speaker was
chosen and conducted to the chair. But
the crowd rushed into the hall and order=
ed the Speaker to (knit his seat. Upon his
refusal they took him by force, and bear
ing him on their shoulders, landed him in
the rotunda of the Capitol, at the •etime
time intimating if he dared to return
that worse would come of it. The uproar
was heard in the Senate, then in peace
able session ; but, some of the crowd being
forced into. the Senate lobby, or elcaping
there to avoid the pressure, carried dis-
May with them, whereby a panic - ensued
among the Senators. .Forthwith some
sought safety: in flight. Stevens among
them, by leaping from the windows to hide
themselves in the neighboring fields, after
climbing fences and, leaving their, foot
prints in the snow. Governor Ritnernow
issued his proclamation, declaring the cap
ital in a state of insurrection, and called
out the first division of volunteers in the
city of Philadelphia, commanded by Gen
end Patterson, to sustain his authority.
The General promptly obeyed, and his
stall officer published an order for imme
diate paiade, to proceed to Harrisburg.
properly armed and equipped, and sup
plied with forty rounds each of ball and
Luck-shot. - Such bloody intentions, especi
ally the "buck-shot," created -a general
laugh, since it was known that the volun
teers, for the most part, sympathized with
the crowd, while General Patterson, more
over, was of the sameuersuasion. In due
time, the soldiers reached the capital, and,
of course, fraternized with their friends.
A tragedy had been underlined for the
bill of the play byßtevena and Ritner, but
a broad farce came oft. The "mob," con
sisting of some fifteen hundred most re
spectable citizens, many of them of high
standing, wealth, intelligence and influ
eoce, resolved themselves into a "com
mittee of safetyi"and published an address
to the people, with their signatures and
place of residence attached. The names
of Col. Forney. Gen. Cameron, Kennedy
Morehead, and Kelly, of Philadelphia, can
be seen among the number. The wrath
of the crowd was concentrated on Stevens,
the instigator of the . outrage on public
opinion and popular rights. Then it was
that Forney stigmatized him in his news
paper as'the "bold, bad man ;" one whose
private vices were only equalled by his
public crimes; one whose time was divid
ed between blacklegs and bankrupt poli
ticians ; one "who bets with the caution of
a statesman and legislates with the rash
ness of a -gambler." The rump house
could. hold no session, and at last
was forced to' yield, for public opinion was
against • it, and public- ridicule over
whelming. Some of the Stevens' follow.
ers giving up the hopeless contest, the
Democratic members from the county of
Philadelphia peaceably. took - their seats.
And thus ended the memorable Buck
shot war and the anti-Masonic party. Ev
en unto this day Stevens has not "overcome
the ridicule for his ludicrous failure to
pack a legislature with his creatures ; nor
has his party forgotten his fondness for
measures which dazzle by their headlong
rashness. He has never been compliment
ed with any post of honor by the State;
it is, only the post of danger his party ac
cords to him. He was never nominated
for Governor, or other high office ; and
never chairman of a central committee.
No*, for the first tinte,bo bee been named

only seven votes where he is best known
and' properly appreciated. It is an an
cient saying that it is hard to'teaoh an old
dog near tricks: It isequally hard for some
old men to forget their favorite follies ;
and Thaddeus is one of these incorrigi.

TAKING A DISLIKE.—An ill-natured fel
low quarrelled with his sweetheart on the
day they were to he married. - After the
ceremony had begun, and he was asked,
"Do you' take this woman to be your
w'dded wife," &c., he replied,
"What's the reason 7" asked the minister.
"I've taken a dislike to her, and that's
enough," was the surly reply. The parties
retired—the bride in tears—and after
much persuasion, the groom was induced
to have the ceremony proceed. It was
now the lady's turn, and when the minis
ter asked her the all-important question,
"No 1" replied she resolutely, "I've-taken
a dislike to him:" The groom, admiring
her spunk, made the matter up with her
as soon as possible, and a third time they
presented themselves before the minister.
He began the ceremony by asking the
übual questions, which were satisfactorily
answered this time: But to the astonish-_
meat of the party his reverence contin
ued? "Well, I'm glad to hear that you are
willing to take each other for husband and
wife, for it's a good thing to be of forgiv
ing tempers. You can now go and get mar
ried where you not tie - the knot,
for I've taken a dislike to both of you."
er A recent trial in Newark, N. J., it
came out that leading Republicans.of that
city, during the election campaign of 1865,
had, loaned a man named Frazer money to
set pp a drinking saloon, to the amount
of $2,600. 'On the trial the man could
only account for $1,300, as f m

witness declined to give, 'come down' for
lesser amounts, which made up the $2 7 600,
It was doubtless considered a fair business

of the very respectable' donors named
have bad refunded to ; them the amounts

country feel such a strong interest. The

the fifty-bwth to the sixtieth degrees of

this point—the parallel of sixty—Russiair
America attains a width of about a thou

boundary becoming identical with the one

longitude to the Frozen Ocean. From
south to north it may be acid to have a
length of one thousand miles, though the
windings of the Pacific coast make it con
eiderably more on the west side—not less
perhaps than fifteen hundred miles. At
the northern boundary, say the parallel
of'seventy, the width, owing to the con

narrows to about three hundred and sixty
miles. For one thousand miles this terri

but so far as the navigation of the rivers
is concerned. it is claimed_by the British
papers that England has te same right to
navigate them as Russia had ; and Russia
could only convey to the United States
the rights she possessed. The Toronto
