first 'William. The new king himself
set the example, and his successor, Z'
Rufus, who laid waste wholete7ri

his ease, gave fresh vent to this whole
The consequence was that those Saxon
subjects who lost all sought aid from
those disbanded Normans who could
get nothing, and lived in thousands by
a general retaliation of robbery and
murder upon their aggressors.

the following anecdotes, was . the most
known - and.dreaded.
He was a Saxon and Wiis born in
Bedfordshire. From his earliest youth
he bad associated with marauders and
thieves, and in the course of time, pla

_gang,Ji e ravaged his native country and
the adjacent country 4 to a fearful extent-.
The king came to the rescue, and
finding that the neighlawhood from St.

passed a much-frequented road to the,
north, was Thomas Dun and

Long after Dun and his gang were de

with booty and departed. The noble
man complained to parliament avainst
the sheriff, when, , - upon investigation,
the trick was discovered.
Nothing prevented Dun from accom-
pliahing any object -which he had in
view, as he possessed the greatest share
of tetherity and ertielty that could fall
to-the lot of man. He would,- under
the disguise of a gentleman,, wait upon
wealthy people, and, upon being shown
into their rooms, murder them and carry
away their money. -'
There was a rich knight in the neigh
borhood of Bedford from whom Dun
wishedlo have a little money. Accor
dingly he went and knocked at the
door; the maid opening it, he inquired
if her master was at home, and famili
arly entered his room. Common com
pliments having passed, he sat down in
a_chair, and began a humorous dis
cOurse, which attracted the attention of
the knight.. Dun then approached, and
demanded a word or two in his ear;
Sir," said he, "my necessities come
pretty thick upon me at present, and I
am obliged to keep even with tnycredi
tors for fear of cracking my fame and
fortune too. Now, having, been directed
to you by some of the heads of the par
ish as a very considerable and liberal
person, I am come to petition you in a
modest manner to lend me a thousand
marks, which will answer all the de
mands upon me at present!"
"A thousand marks!" answered the
knight; "Why, man, that's a capital
sum : and where is the inducement to
lend you so much money . w who are a per
fect stranger to me, for to my eyes and
knowledge :I never 'saw you before in
all the days of my life?"
you must be mistaken, I am
the'honett grocer at Bedford,, tvho has
so often shared your favors."
"Really, friend, I do not know you,
nor shall I • part with my money but on
a good- 'bottnin ; pray 'what security
have you ? .
_ "Why, this dagger," says Dun, pull
ing. it out , of his breast, "is my, constant
security, and unless you let me have a
thousand marks h4tantly, _I shall pierce
your heart !"
This terrible - menace produced the in
tended etVects, and Dives delivered the
ifiOney, -
Having lost'his,road in the country,
Dun arrived 'at a house, - Where he in
qiiired if they cold(' accomodate a be
nighted traveler with a bed. The gen
tleman of the mansion politely told him
that all his house was occupied Ivith
friends and relations who hadjust arriv
ed to be preSerit at the celebration of his
daughter's marriage,: which was to take
place, next day, otherwise he should
have heen,very welcome.
When he was'unwilling to departthe
gentleman Informed hinr, if he was not
superstitious or had courage enough,
that tbere was one room in his house
unoccupied, but that it was haunted.
Dun was above all silly apprehensions
of -that nature, and after being well
entertained retired to his room, the
company all prayingjfor his quiet rest.
- There was a good tire lighted in the
room, and when ail lthe house was at
rest he lay auxious4 expecting some
thing to appear, when the chamberdoor
opens and in comes the hride, of whom
he had taken•particular notice at sup
per. _
-He was, at first, at a loss to know
whether it was only a resemblance, but
soon satisfied himself that it-was really
the lady, though whether she was walk
ing in her sleep or not he could not say,
but he -resolved to match her motions.
She seemed to look steadfastly - upon'
his 'countenance, and then going round
the bed,- gently turned Alp- the clothes,
and lay down by his sidewbereshe had
not rested long till she drew a _rich dia
mond ring from her fingel-, then placed
it on the pillow, and left the room with
the same silent step as she had entered
11 to d
the boats, and repeatedly struck by
their oars, and atter having received
several strokes on his head he was at
- last vanquished.
He was conductedlo a surgeon to have
his wounds dressed, then led before a
mtOstrate, who sent him to Bedford
jail under a guard. Remaining there
two weeks, until he was considerably
recovered, a scaffold was erected in the
market-place. and without a formal trial
he was led forth to his execution—a
barbarous one, for he was literally
hacked to pieces.
Thanks to what we have related of
Henry I, and to the Crusades, which
cleared the country of so many idlers and
marauders, England for near a hundred
years after Dun's death remained se
cure from domestic robbery and mur
der; and ever afterwards the bandits
that now and then in troubled times ap
peared committed their iniqutities on a
minor scale.
theßobin Hood and his outlaws of
the next century ; the robbers of Crom
well's time, and the highwaymen of a
still later period, were but puny suc
cessors of Dun, and had such a strange
spice of chivalry in, their doings, that
.posterity rather inclines to enjoy the
romance of their exploits than to con
demn, as it ought to do, the mianfohl
errors of their ways.
Beside the Tibei on a certain day.
A swarthy plebeian took his glooming way;
Wiim in low cunning—dexterous at dice,
And skilled iu every infamous device ;
A brawny Hercules whom all men feared,
And even whim lie cheated loudly cheered.

DEAR AGITATOR : I have just re- 1
turned from an excursion over the first
forty miles of the Atchison & Pike's
Peak R. R., Mid find the road one of the
smoothest for a new road I have ever
seen. A party from Boston, New York,
Chicago and St. Joseph, numbering
some two hundred, arrived here on Sat
urday night last, stayed over Suilday
and were joined here yesterday by some
two hundred invited guests and left at
11 o'clock A. 3f. for the west end which
is now completed and in,rrood running
Order for a distance of forty-five miles.
Accompanying. the excursionists are
Maj. Gen'l S. R. Curtis and Gen. J. H.
Simpson; of Washington, and Dr. Wm.
M. White, of New Haven, commission
ers appointed to inspect the second sec
ond section of the road which commen
ces on -.the Grasshopper, a fine stream
On the Kickapoci Reservation twenty
miles from this city. '
- The train consisted of six splendid
passenger cars, two Of which belonged
to the Hannibal and St. Joseph and one
to the Michigan Southern and North
ern Indiana R. R. Every preparation
was made by the railroad company for
a pleasant trip, and no one went out on
this occasion that did not enjoy them
selves finely. It was a warm and beau
tiful day till three o'clock when the
sky clouded and a cool breeze kept up
the remainder of the day.
Nothing worthy of note transpired
along the route until we reached Mns
cotab, a new laid-out town on the Kick
apoo Reservation. ' Scores of the excur
sionists had never seen an Indian.—
Here was a wigwam a few rods from
'the track and a regular stampede from
. the cars was the result.' All were anx
ious to - get a sight at Te-et-i-quauk and
see his squaw and pappooses. He was
ushered from his wigwam to the front
of the cars with his oldest son, a bright
eyed little chap of six or seven years
and the lady passengers also had a view
of them. • . A gentleman from Boston
brought out-in his arms one of the-little
pappooses and carried it through the
cars _much to the enjoyment of the
We• reached the- end of the second
section (40 miles) , at half past 1 o'clock,
and at two camped and dined on the
prairie. The pile of eatftbles spread out
was a caution to hungrY folks. The ta
bles groaned n:ith roast pig,-beef, lamb,
pork, boiled ham, turkey; chicken, wild
goose; prairie chicken, quail, era,-and
ample justice was done to it by the hun
gry crowd.
Speeches were made by Gen. Jas.
Craig, 'of Missouri, Maj. Gen. Curtis,
Glen. Simpson, Rev. Dr. Tyng, of New
:York, Gov. Smyth, of New Hampshire,
Col. Clapp, of Boston, Rev. Pardee But
ler (well known to the early friends of
Kansas as the man who was tarred and
feathered at Atchison eleven years ago
for expressing his Free State senti
ments) and others, winding up with a
speeeh from, Hon. S. C. Pomeroy, our
distinguished U. Senator. All the
speeches 'were received with applause.
At four o'clock we were again seated
in the cars with our faces turned toward
the east, stopping several times on the
way in and meeting with a slight acci
dent which'detained us about half an
hour. Between Monrovia and this
place night overtook us and those who
had never seen a prairie on fire at night
had. a fine view of one. It was a rich
sight, the flames running high and the
Bostonians and New Yorkers enjoyed it
wonderfully.• -
A dozen Kickapoos presented them
selves atMuscotah, wrapped up iu bright
red blankets; and were particularly de
lighted with the sight of a long passen
ger train and the large crowd. Mr.
Pensineau, the interpreter, was there
in a buggy with his huge squaw, and
drove several times the length of the
train and was much admired by all.—
Mr. Pensineau has been on the frontier
west of the Missouri river between
thirty and forty years and knows the

After a paragraph of congratulations
upon the continued blessings of Provi
dence throughout the land, the Presi
dent says:
" In my message of the 4th of Decem
ber, 1885, Congress was informed of the
measures which had been instituted by
the Executive with a view to the gradu
al restoration of the States in which
the insurrection occurred to their rela
tions with the General Government.
Provisional Governors had been ap
pointed, Conventions called, Governors
elected, Legislatures assembled; and
Senators and Representatives chosen to
the Congress of the United States.—
Courts had been opened for the enforce
ment of laws long in abeyance. The
blockade had been removed, custom
houses reestablished, and the internal
revenue laws put in force, in order that/
the people might contribute to the na
tional income. Postal operations had
been renewed, and effbrts were being
made to restore them to their former
condition of efficiency. The States
themselves bad been asked to take part
in thl high function of amending the
Constitution, and of thus sanctioning
the extinction of African Slavery as
one of the legitimate results of our in
ternecine struggle.
" Having progressed thus far, the Ex
ecutive Department found that it had
accomplished nearly all that was with
in the scope of its Constitutional au
thority. One thing however, yet re
mained to be done before the work of
restoration could be completed, and
that was the admission to Congress of
loyal Senators and Representatives
from the States whose people had re
belled against the lawful authority of
the General Government. This ques
tion devolved upon the respective
Houses, which, by the Constitution, are
made the judges of the elections, re
turns, and qualifications of their own
members ; and its consideration at once
engaged the attention of Cougrese.
In the meantime, the Executive
Department—no other plan having
been proposed by' Congress—continued
its efforts to perfect, as far as was prac
ticable, the restoration of the proper re
lations between the citizens of the res
pective States, the States, and the Fed
eral Government, extending from time
to time, as the public interests seemed
to require, the judicial, revenue, and
postal systems of the country. With
the advice and consent of the, Senate,
the necessary officers were appointed,
and appropriations made by Congress
for the payment of their salaries. The
proposition to amend the Federal Con
stitution, so as to prevent the existence
of slavery within the United States or
any place subject to their jurisdiction,
was ratified by the requisite number of
States; and on the 18th day of Decem
ber, 1865, it was officially declared to
have become valid as a part of the
Constitution of the United States. All
of the States in which the insurrection
had existed promptly amended their
Constitutions, so as to make them con
form to the great change thus effected
in the organic law of th land ; declared
null and void all ordinances and laws
of secession ; repudiated , all pretended
debts and obligations created for the
revolutionary purposes of insurrection ;
and proceed, in good faith, to the enact
ment of measures for the protection and
amelioration of the condition of the
colored race. Congress, however, yet
hesitated to admit any of these States
to representation ; and it was not until
the close of the eighth month of the
session that an exception was made in
favor of Tennessee, by the admission of
her Senators and Representatives.
"I deem it a subject of profound re
gret that Congress has thus far failed to
admit loyal Senators and Representa
tives from the other States, whose--in
habitants, with those of Tennessee had
engaged in the Rebellion. Ten States—
,' more than one-fourth of the whole num
ber—remain without representation ;
the seats of 50 members in thejlouse
of Representatives and of :20 members
in the Senate are yet vacant—not by
their own consent, not by a failure of
election, but by the refusal of Congress
to accept their credentials. Their ad
mission, it is believed, would have ac
complished much toward the renewal
and strengthening of otir relations as
one people, and removed serious cause
for discontent on the part of the inhab
itants of those States. It would have
accorded with the great principle enun
ciated in the Declaration of American
Independence that no people ought to
bear the burden of taxation, and yet be
denied the right of representation. It
would have - been in consonance with
the express provisions bf the Constitu
tion that "each State shall have at
least one Representative," and " that
no State, without its consent, shall be
deprived of its equal suffrage in the
Senate." These provieions were intend
ed to secure to every State, and to the
people of every State, the right of rep
resentation is each House of Congress;
and so important was it deemed by the
trainers oi. the Constitution that the
equality of the Statea .in the Senate
should be preserved that not even by an
amendment of the Constitution can
any State, without its consent, be de
nied a voice in the branch of the Na
, tional Legislature.
1 "It is true, it has been assumed tat
the existence of the States was termilaa
ted by the rebellious acts of their inhab
itants, and that the insurrection having
been suppressed, they *::ere thencefor
ward to be considered merely as con
quered territories. The Legislative,
Executive arid Judicial Departments of
the Lloverualent, however, with great
distinctness and uniform consistency,
refused to sanction au assumption so
incompatible with the nature of our re
publican system, and with the professed
objects of the war. Throughout the
