ANECDOTES OP PUBLIC MEN,
Last week I told you something about
the old men of Philadelpliia. Now lot
mo, write fantiliarly and frankly tif''a
younger citizen—one who ; is, perhaps;
as gMierally discussed as any lfliing per;-•
son. - There is a mystery '6l..)Rut him
which is rather increased by the fact
that ho is 'a' quiet, though incessant
worker—not often -seen, yet as 'ubiqtil
tons as if ho possessed the power of' rei
peating himself indefinitely.
Thomas Alexander, Scott, vice president,
of the Pennsylvania Central Railroad,
or as he is every:where called, by high
and low, from the president' totthe pro
letaire—" Tom Scott.'-' 'Filling a largo
space in a largo enterprise, 'Wielding' im
mense resources, combining extraordi
nary elements, and dealing literally with .
empires. Colonel Scott is still compara
tively young, and qualified, with ordi
nary carp over his reserved forces, physi
cal and mental, for a long and most dig- .
tingnished life. His experience is tin
other illustration of the elasticity of otir
institutions; another proof• that when
the offspring of the wealthy, sgoiled and
enervated by over indulgence, fail to
grapple' w ith grave. din ties and responsi
bilities, we can always find fitter mate
rial in the humbler walks, and recruit
the energies of the nation from the sons
of those who linve been hardened in the
stern school of necessity and toil.
Thomas AlextunleT Scott was born in
the village of London, Franklin county,
Pennsylvania, on tile twenty-eighth of
December, 1534, and on his next birth+
day will be forty-seveu years old. lie
began as a Loy in a country stoic at a
very I4IW salary, aftni• haiing completed
his education in the one village school,
with the oi,t; teacher, Robert Kirby, of
London ; and upon the death of his
father, in 1`33.1, went to live with his
eldest sister, whoso husband kept a
country store near WayneslaMongh, in
Franklin county, where he remained
eighteen months; then he lived a short
time with his brother James D. Scott,
also a merchant at llridgeport, irP-.the
same county; then with Metcalf S
Ritchie, merchants in Illurc'ersburg. In
alb these situations he exhibited the
same crargy and had the confidence and
respect_of employers and associates for
the ability and correctness now so uni
versally awarded to the man. his
past history his frank, honest, candid,
clear, prompt manner in' business trans
actions has deservedly secured him the
confidence aml respect of the business
world—above all, his goodness of heart,
the measfirrof.his favors and charities,
being the necessities of his friend. My
first recollection of him was in Lancaster
county, where he was a clerk of Major
James Patton, his brother-in-law, who
was collector of tolls at Columbia, on'
the State Road, under the administra
tion of Governor Porter. I think,, in the
year 183 S. Prom this lie was transferred
to the extensive warehouse and commis
sion establishment of the Leeches, 'at
Columbia, whore he remained until 1817,
when he came to Philadelphia' as chief
clorlipnder A. Boyd Cummings,cellector
of tolls at the eastern end of the Public
Works. In 18,80 he entered the service
of the great Pennsylvania Central „at
Duncanville as their general agent of
the Mountain or Eastern division. On
the opening of the Wesfern division he
was put in charge of that, and there fie
remained till j Q was called to take con
trol of the entire line, in consequence of
the ill health of General H. 3. Bombaert,
the superihtende.nt. lii 187)9, on the
death of Iton.llant B. Foster, yico
president of the road, ho was elected to
that position, which he continues to fill.
There is no romance in this career,

ThoinaA Alexander• Scott?!
is nipidity iuul cuursge alilzo as,ali ad
ministrative and executive ollicer have
given hinr a- prestige known wherever
a railroad is operated. It was these
(pi:dales that induced the administration
to call him into the Government service
as Assistant Secretary of War after the
outbreak of the rebellion ; and those of
us who studied him then can well under
stand low thoroughly he deserves his
present high reputation. 'lfs was sum-
°nod to Washington in 1801,' at a
period when the whole North was panic
striehen 7 when the CapitiLl was
by the rebels lying between it and4lM
Susquehanna. A lean' of railroad go
uius, taut, and experience was impera-
Lively needed. 'Governor Curtin wanted
him to remain in .RennsylLMnia, but Mr.'
Lincoln, the Secretary of War, and Gcn-
oral Scott insisted that Abe' young vice'
president of the• Pennsylvania Central
- should be forthcoming ; and ho came,'
and effectually aided General Butler,
then at Ahnapolis with 'his Massachu
setts men, to build the road which
opened the way-and roStorod the line of
communption, and. so saved. Washing ?
ton from capture. lie remained_ at his
desk in the 'War Departnient;• ilpless
when called off .to superintend- the vast
Military transportation of tho army'at
otlitir points, until the crisis was over,
and than returned to his post at Philader=
phlai surrounded -with the 'Confidence

was pleasant to note linWquietly ho met
o loaders of armies hod tho loAdors of
the Senate, and how in over circle, rip
matter what thodinnue, he was imconL
atrnined and self-poised. Perhaps. ono
of the secrets of his popularity was hid
avoidantlo of alt discussionS.
Intensely attaiged to his country, Colo

resumed the thread-of the, conyersation.
Sometimes a railroad president or offi
.eial, belonging to another State, Would
come - in at, the der while_ the_train

Such are some of the leading traits of
ThomaS AleScander Scott, or "Aleck,"
as he used to be called while Aramsacting
business for his friend Metcalf, in Prank
lin county. It is broom: to add that no
man has ever been more endeared to his"
associates in business. I wish I could
Trilby to instances of his generosity to his
family-and to his friends, but this is a
subject Upon whit:lllle is a littlo sensi
tive ; and yet 1M never Seems to tire- in
doing good—never forgets l the intimates
of his early career, the mon who served,
with him ,wheir ho was a clerk, agent,
or NTerintendent ; Although over
whehned with engagements, ho never
allows a ease of 'suffering or misfortune
to pass himmicoded. It deserves to bo
said that in his' ! capacity as the active
head of a gidantic corporation, ho hail
never gambled With its great interests
at the stock exchange never corrupted ,
judges or juries, never turned what be
longed to others to selfish or to merce
nary ends ; arid it is untioulitedly to his
exact, accurate, and inflexible business
principles that the great Pennsylvania
Central is chiefly indebted for its - sound
and increasing prosperity.
conclude - Ellis hasty sketch of my old
friend by relating au incident of his.
...years ago, when
his presence was.necessary at an extra
ordinary crisis in the affairs of the com
pany, he started from Pittsburg on an
express train, and found himself, after
some hOurs' travel,_ obstructed by an
other train, which bad run off the track.
The debris, the fragments, and cdnfiei
sion produced by the accident would
have required - at least a day for their re
moval; The'engineerS were in despair.
After a moment's reflection the Colonel
directed that the whole, of the wreak
should be burned, and the torch was ap
plied td the machincry r i oars,
and goods that lay scattered around. Of
course he, made his destination, but
when he reached the company and told
his story, there was some indignation at
what they regarded a waste of property.
Colonel Scott slit down and soon con
vinced them by a calculation estimating
the loss that would accrue by the delay
of trains; &c., that he had loftily saved
a considerable sum by the transaction.
The brain work of a man like Colonel
Scott is immense, but he enjoys the rare
facility of dismissing troublesome ques
tions from his mitd. Ho never takes
his sorrows with him to bed. When his
day's work is done ho retires with a
sunny face to his home, enjoys the so
ciety of his family, plays crequet,Cor
'whist, rides around the Thtrk, lookii in
at the opera, and now and then mingles
with a company of his friends. Of simple
habits and refined tastes, lie ought to
live a long, life. That h'e may so live is
my sincere and earnest primer:

inieln,'flie'Earl, and his cousin, Lord So
.:lnd-Se, and hisother cdusin, the Honor
aliferl4O-and=so, that they at once offered
hiM a situation in Mich. counting-room.
Although Angus was sufficiently proud
'of his ancestry, and of his noble connec
'ions, he_ felt rather arinoyed at the
'Manner in which his employers alluded
to them ;' and, thinking that it would
not increase the respect of the people for
him among whom he must live, lie
begged - Mr. Gordon, the' head of the
film, not to say anything abbut his
family. Ho was only tho son of a poor
clergyman, 'and he hoped to got along by
his personal Merits, for he had no right
to expect nuy assistance from his noble
kir. Gordon was more pleased than
ever with him, and promised to respett
his wishes, and Angus soon commenced
to make himself useful.' His punctuality
and intelligence, and the readiness with
which ho learned the routine duties of
hisplace, gained for him the confidence
and'good will of -the other 'Members of
the firm. He was not particularly fine
looking, and his manners wore con
strained ; but ho had-m leorty and frank
expression in his countenance, was tall
and straight, with square-shoulders, and
his reddish hair and blue oyes told plainly
scottish descent. Eu was not yet
twenty-one, and perfectly healthy.
Hundreds of Just such young men, and
• many, of them quite as well connected,
make, their -appearance in New York
e-very year, find employment in various
ways, and become respectable citizen's.
Very few ever return to their homes.
But Angus had no intention of remain
ing one day longer than was 'necessary
to accomplish his.ptirpose ; and, to make
sure -that his determination should, not
;be broken, he resolved not Co go into
Seciety, but to keeP• alOof from ladies
and attend strictly to business: •
-1• Io had been but two -Months In Now
Yorli'• when he , happened to' be' riding
down town in a Fifth Avenue -omnibus
late in the ,afternoon.. ,It was a warm
June clay, and on imeount of the
heat, to . which` ho had not become
' , accustomed. , After,he took his seat; ho
ba.pponed to turn his: head,, ; and dis
covered that lie was sitting by the side
of n young lady whose face liMeould not
see, as it was turned from_him.; ; for the
ladies at that, tune wore'ilats -which
covered their, headi: But What ho did . 1
seo (though why he saw it, and Why ho
'made a mental.-noto of it, could net bo
well- explained) was a bright auburn
ringlet which hung below the young
lady's hat, and • kept dancing up and
down her whitd neck as .the omnibus
jolted over the rough pavement., It was
the most beautiful curl; so lustrous, so
radiant, 'so elastic, so lovely in color, and'
so altogether bright and, peculiar, that
Angus could scarce refrain from the gross
impropriety bf taking. hold- of it and
twisling, it around his finger. It was a
strange fancy ; but be couldn't help it.
Ile tried to avert his head, but he was
completely fascinated by it ; and, as the
ringlet kept bobbing up and, down, it
seemed to fairly make dents in his heart,
as it certainly did on his mind. And
when the lady-pulled the string, and got
out at the corner of Tenth street, he
followed her : With his eyes ; but he saw
nothing besides the-bewitching curl, else
he would. have discovered that she had
other attractions much more likely to
fascinste the attvtion of a'yothig man
than a locicof VI%
When he rattliitiO to his' desk, "Angus
took up- his pen- with the intention -of
writing a letter to his fathori but, after

and adding' "My clear and , honored

that he was enabled to,makO a tolerably

himself sitting, in the old family pew,

,saw, a stately old gentleman, with a fl orid

anco.of silvery- hair, open. the pow door
direetly, in front of hini - tO usher - rid a
richly attired young lady, 'froth benotith
Whosejeunty straw Jratdangled the iglu-
Veal , lock of hair which had fascinated
' himthe day before. , • ,
The young lady sat directly in front
of him, and, after leaning her head for
a moment r as allgped- _Bpiseopalians do
on taking their seats in church, she sat
erect,. and the lovely curl rested lovingly
'against her fair neck, the end of it just
resting upon her shoulder: •
AngUs'held his breath ) while his heart
heat morn, rapidly than before ; and he
thought to himself that ho would in
stantly.leave the Church of - the Advent;
if lie could fi nd any reasonable cause a s'
an explanation to his employer. But
the probability is that no cause would
have scorned to him a sufficient excuse
for such it 'proceeding. As,it was, he
eat the service through ; but did not
hear ono word of the sermon, and made
tho responses mechanically, without
heeding their import. There was a vis
ion of loveliness before him which en
grossed him wholly. Tho morning was
warm, and the young lady took off her
right glove, to use her fan more easily - ;
and lie could not fail to notice - her beau
-tiful hand , and her well-rounded wrist,
Which . was clasped by a gold , bracelet
ornarnente,d with pearls. Ile caught a
glimpse now and then of her face, which
seemed to him exquisitely delicate and
beautiful ; lie noted how perfectly formed
and tinted- her ears were, and what
charmed him most was to seo that they
had never been pierced for jewels, which
he felt certain was an indication of a
refined character and ptirity of morals.
Her *hole, appearance displayed an ele
gant symmetry of taste ;' but beyond and
above everything else was that immacu
late and radiant lock of,hair, which had
first seized upon his fancy—his affec
tions, perhaps, would be the 'bettor word
—and taken him completely captive. •
"But, after all," sadly thought Angus
to himself, "what is this woman to me,
or what am I to her—me whom she has
never seen,. and never nlay ? I will
think no more about her.",
Still, when they came out of church,
Angus said to Mr. Lenox, with as care
less an air as he could assume : " Who
was that remarkable looking old gentle
man in front of us?"
" That old fellow with the silvery
hair? Why that was Lord Mortimor."
"Lord ' Mortimer i•' said' Angus.
" Why I supposed there were no lords
"Ho is'no more a lord than I am,"
replied Mr. Lonox, laughing. "But wo
call him'so down town, because ho is
such a pompous old follow."
" I" said Angus; "I understand.
And the young lady was hts daUghter, I
"0, no ;'hisniece," replied Mr. L!nox.
And so Angus wont home a wiser if
nOt a better man. And, as ho had not
heard Dr. Bedell's sermon in the morn
ing, he felt it his diitY to go in the
afternoon, that ho might be able to
Write his father about it. But it so
happened that Doctor Bedell's assistant
preached in the afternoon ; and it also
happened that neither Lord Mortimer
nor his niece was in church. And the
next Sunday morning Angus went to
hoar the eloquent Doctor Bedell, again ;
but didn't hear him, for the same en-.
chanting vision sat before him, and
would- not permit him to listen to any-
Bing, nor see anything but herself and
for beautiful hnir
The situation was growing serious.
Hero was this resolute young fellow,
who had Shown such good sense, auci
acted so like a hero in leaving his home
from a sense. of duty, and coming to
America to sook his 'fortune, that ho
might be able to make provision for his
sisters, giving himself up to an idle
whim about a young woman's hair. Ho
had abandoned the university from a
lofty sense of duty ; why could ho not
also abandon the pursuit of a phantom,
which was likely to load him from his
duty ? But ho didn't. On tho contrary,
the proud and heroic scion of a noble
house had the meanness to loiter around
the church door until the 'pompons Lord
Mortimer and his niece came out, and
then he followed them home. They
urned down Tenth street, and tho niece
entered .a brown-stone front, her undo
leaving her at the door, and then going
in another direction—perhaps, thought
Angus, to his club.
The silver Oath on the door of the
ouso which the young lady entered bore
the name of Brown, and -nothing more.
It was evidently not the house of Lord
Mortimer ; and, the next day Angus
learned by consulting tho directory that
he resided in another street, and that
"Bro Wit" was a boarding-house. This
Wilt an important discovery ; and Angus
in utter disregard of all his prudential
resolutions,. had the imprudence to leave
his cheap lodgings and take a room at
Brown's,, in Tenth street, where, it may
easily be foreseen, he contrived to meet
and very soon be on intimate terms .with
tho wearer of that euchhntiug lock of
hair. Never did tho course of a genuine
passion run so smoothly as in the case of
Angus and, the beautiful nicco of Lord
Mortimer. Ho also became acquainted
with the uncle ; and, instead of finding
. him pompous , discovered him to. be ono
of the most affable' and agrooablo old
gentlemen ho had over known, though
ho .was statoly enough in his manners
and extremely punctillions and respect
ful.. Angus nevor spoke of him as Lord
Mortinicr, and .resented it when other's
called him so. The name of the
was Clara She was an orphan, and it
was understood that she Would inherit
her, uncle's fortune ; for ho . was a
bachelor, and she had been adopted and
educated by him. Angus know nothing

than that ho intensely,. and_
that,- it she. did not reciprocate his

He had made no distinct avowal of his
passion ; but circumstances Soon eOurred
that rendered it necessary that ho should.
Nearly a year had4passect since he landed
in New York, and letters, from home
brought him intelligence which very
materially changed his position in life,
and rendered it not unlikely that Jo
should be summoned to return home and
abandon the mercantile career iipmf
which he had entered. Both of the sons
of his' uncle bad fallen in the.Crimea—
one had been killed in the trenches before
eobastopol, and - the' other bad died of
the . fever ; and his father had. -now
become the heir to the Earldom of Clan
Morvon, and his"unclo was an infirm old
man. But Angus was still the ,son of. a
. poor clergyman, and ho Uhl not ,wish,to
be known as anything also. There was
no season for his giving up hitt position
in the countina - -hous6 of Lenox, Cordell
& 'Whore he. had made himself 'so

to a higher place, and his salary had

"I'am not yet," said Angus, licgtat

the elated father, and, opening his desk, ,

I should feel that I had sold myself if I
did. I am not indifferent to money,
and, to be frank with you, I needit now,
But I cannot take it from you now."
Ho did not see Clam that night ; lint
he called upon Mr. Lenox, and told him
all that had happened; and told him,
moreover, of the intelligenbe he had re
ceived from England, and begged, him
not to reveal it. It would, he thought,
be a- pleasant surprise by and by to Clara
and her father. And he,was inclined to
follow the advice cif his employer, who
liked the fun of a Wedding, and- :who
recommended him to be married with as
little delay as possible. '
The next day Angus had an interview
with Clara, who, after heating what had
passed between him and her father,
grew nervous-and hysterical. She sat
down to'tho piano and commenced play
ing a nocturne of Chopin's" and as ho
stood at her back, listening to the plain
tive notes, ho observed that she did not
wear the radiant curl which he- had felt
was an essential part of her being, for
it . was - that which had first attraetcd
him to her. After running over two or
three passages ) she cbmplained of feeling
chilly, and asked him to throw her
'Llama shawl over her shouldeni. But
it was not in the room., "_.Would ho go
up stairs to her dressing room and get
it for her?" . .
Of course ho would. •He. was too,
happy to be sent on such an errand, and
to be permitted the faMiliar privilege of
entering her private apartment. He
borliided gayly up stairs to the third
floor, and found the shawl on the back
of an easy chair in front of a Psyche
glass. Ills evil genius, if ho had one,
prompted him to look upon the whith
marble slab of the dressing table, and
there - he saw an object which sent a
thrill of horor through his whole fraine.
To assure himself that his eyes did- not
deceive him, he took it up,.hold• it for a
moment in his hand, 'and dropped it, as
though it had been an adder, instead of
its being that identical look of radiaht
hair which had so entranced hurl and
made him a captive to its wearer.
• He took it upagain, and saw it .was
curiously fastened to a small comb,' for
the puOose of securing it to the head ,•
and near it he discovered h tiny saucer• of
rouge, with a curious little brush in it ;
and in a half open box thorn were visible
more auburn curls. This time ho did
not drop the radiant curl. lie dashed it
with a feeling of disgnst upon the marble
slab, and thought to himself, as. ho
-shambled upon tho stairs, what his .feel
ings would have eon if ho hail ;nada

On entering the parlor, he throW the
Llama shawl Over the shoulders of Clahr,
who was still engaged upon the plaintive

at her neck and saw how 'lilted and sal

He stood moodily ruminatin;i.for few.
moments. The piarmwas out,. of_tune,
she fingered .badly ; ho had never seen
her before when she (lid not look beauti

time, and must return to his office ; and,
to the astonishment and grief of Clara,,
he left'ribritplly, without kissing lmei, or
oven bidding her dood-bye.

reached Angus a black bordered, letter,.
saying, solemnly : „

with a trembling hand, ho read that his
