• One cold winter morning, the last
Sunday of December, 1849, a halfnaked
man knoeked timidly at the basement
door of a tine substantial mansion in the
city of Brooklyn. Though the weather
was bitter ' even for that season, the
young man had no clothing hut a ragged
pair of cloth pants, and the remains of
a flannel shirt, which, exposed his
muscular chest in, many large rents.
But in spite of his tattered apparel and
evident fatigue, as he leaned heavily
updn the railing of the, basement stairs,
a critical observer could not fail to no-
hoe a conscious air of dignity, and the
marked traces of cultivation, and' re
finement in his pale haggard counte-
-The door was speedily opened, and
disclosed a large comfortably. furnished
room, with its glowing grate of anthra
cite, before which was placed a luxuri
ously furnished breakfast table. A
fashionably attired young; Man, , a
broca!l e dressing gown and - velvet slip
pers, was reclining on a sofa, busily
reading the inclining papers. The
beautiful young wife had lingered at
the table, giving the servant -in wait
ing her orders for the household matters
of the day,: when tifq timid rap fit the
door attracted her attention. She coin
mantled it to be opened, but the young
,master of the mansion replined • that it
was quite useless—bcinw,it o _door wan,
some thieving beggar but the , ..—'
"Chine in to the fire,":said the Young
wife, iMptrlsfvelY,'"befere yeti Perish!"
The metlieant l , without exhibiting,.
any surprise at such usual treatment •ot
ii street beggar, slowly entered the
room, manifesting a painful weakness
at every step. On his entrance, Dr.
Afaywood with a displeased air, gath
ered up his papers and left the apart
ment. The compasasonate lady unwise
ly placed the half-frozen man near the,
itre,nyhile obe prepared a boWl 'of fin
, grant coffee, Nvhidli with abundant food,
was placed before him. But noticing
the abrupt departure of her husband,
Mrs. Maywood, with a clouded counte
nance, telt the.roem, whippering„ to the
Servant td retriain until the stranger
should leave.
She ran hastily upthe richly ; nionn
ted'stairease, and paused before the en
trance of a small laboratory and medi
cal library, and occupied solely by her
husband, who was a physician and
practical chemist, She opened the door
and enterett the JO . Orn: ; Maywood
was sitting' fit a small table with his
head resting on his hand, apparently
in deep thought.
,"Edward,' said the young wife gent
ly touching his arm, "I fear I had dis
pleased you, but the man looked so
wretched I could not bear to drive him
away," and her sweet voice trembled
as she added—" You know I take sacra
ment to-day." '
'Dear Mary," replied the ,fond hus
band, "I appreciate your motives. I
know it is pure goodness of heart which
leads you to disobey me, but stilllmust
command that no beggar shall ever be
permitted to enter the house. It is for
your own safety that I insist upon it.
How deeply you might be imposed
upon in my frequent absences from home
I shudder to, think. The man that is
now below may bea burglar in disguise,
already, in your , absence, taking im
presSions in wax of the different key
holes in the room, so as to enter some
night at his leisure. Your limited ex
4erience of city life makes it difficult
for youln credit so mud) depravity.
It is no charity to give to street beggars,
it•only encourages vice, dearest.":
"It may be so," responded Mrs: May
-1 wood, "but it ceems wicked not to re
lieve suffering and want even if the
person • hal behaved badly—and we
know it. But I promise you not to
ask another beggar into the house."
At this moment the servant rapped
violently at the door, crying that the
.beggar was dying.
"Come,".Edward, your skill can save
him,l know," said his wife, hastening
from the room.
The'doctor did not refuse this appeal
to his professional vanity, for he imme
diately followed his wife's flying foot
steps as she descended to the basement.
They found the mendicant, lying pale
and' unconscious upon the carpet, where
he had slipped from weakness from his
chair, where Mrs: MaywOod had, seated
"He is a handsome fellow," murmur

Maywood and his lovely wife entered

the lustre 'of yotithful happiness, yet
there was a touch of tender pity in l
their drooping lids, that won the confi

ermine mantilla which protected her
from 'the piercing wind* rivaled but
could not surpass the delicate purity' cjf
her complexion, •
Many admiring eyes followed the fault

moved with unconscious grace up the
aisle of the church, but none with more
heartfelt devotion than the young,
wayward,,,but generous man who had
recently wed her iu spite Other poverty
and the sneers of his, aristocratic ac. 7
The stately organ had pealed ,its last
rich notes, which were still faintly ech
oing in the arches, when a stranger of
venerable aspect, who had previously
taken no part in the services of the
altar, rose and announced for his' text
the oft quoted but seldom applied words
of the Apostle—"Be not forgetfUl to
entertain strangers, for thereby. some
have entertained angels unawares."
Dr. Maywood felt his forehead flush
painfully ; it appeared to him for the
moment that the preacher must have
known of his want of
,charity towards
strangers, and wished to give him a
public lesson ; but he soon saw from
the tenor of his discourse that his own
guilty conscience had alone
.made the
application in his particular case.
It had, not the space; nor indeed the
power s to give any synopsis of the ser
mon , but thatssit, combined with the
incident of the morning, effected a
happy revolution in 'the mind of at
least one of its hearers. So much so
that on the return of Dr. Maywood how
church he repaired at once to the room
of the mendicant to offer such attention
as he might stand in need of. But the
young man seemed to be much refreshed
by rest and nutritious j food, and com
menced gracefully thanking his host
for the kind attention he had received,
which without doubt, saved his life.
"I will recompense you well, for thank
God, I am not the beggar that I seem.

"My name is Arthur Willett," added
the stranger.
"Why, that is my wife'sfamilyname.
She will be doubly pleased at her agen

"Of what State is she a native ?" ask
ed Arthur Willett, eagerly.
. "I married her in the town of B—,
where she was born."
At this moment Mrs. Maywood en
tered,the room, surprised at the long
absence of her husband.
Arthur Willett gnzed at her with a
ook of the wildest surprise, murmured :
`lt cannot be—it cannot be, I am de
irious to think so!"
Mrs. Maywood gazed with little less '
astonishment, motionless as a statue.
"What painful mystery is this?"
Cried Dr. Maywood, excitedly address
ing his wife. who then became con
scious of the singularity of her conduct.
"Oh, no - mystery," she replied,. sigh
ing deeply, "only this , stranger is the
image of my long lost brother Arthur."
And Mrs. Maywood; overcome with
emotion, turned to leave the room.
"Stay one moment," pleaded the
stranger drawing a small ring from his
finger, and holding it up, asked if she
recognized that relic.

Mary Willett Maywood fell upon the

saying to himself:
"Be not forgetful to entertain strang

following singular gbituary appears in
an lowa paper in relation to a boy kill
ed by a railroad accident:
He was asleep in the car; it run off
the track, struck a tree, threw his head
against the ear with such force as to
produce insensibility. He was-. taken
to the hospital, where he died the next
morning, sensbility never returning.
He ,was seventeen years old last Sep
tember, six feet high and weighed 175
pounds. He was the most higly organ
ized boy I ever knew—the best educa
ted, because he mastered what he stud
ied.. He was a linguist, Latin,' Greek,
English. Mr. Walker, who was partial
to him, volunteered to teach him,
evenings, all the Latin learned in col
lege. He was a mathematician, for
which he had a passion, a surveyor,
draughtsman, artist; carpenter—the best
biographer I ever knew.
. Ho had a woman's loving heart—
a man's inflexible purpose. He also
worshiped hiss mother's' memory--his'
eyes were just like hers. Cats, dogs,
horses, birds, children, were his pets.
'He had an intense curiosity in relation
to all the contrivances of the creation.
He watched a bird with the deVotion
of an ornithologist—was struck with the
gallantry of the male canary, when a
lump of sugar was put in the cage, it
waiting till the female ate as much as
it wanted, He had an intense desire to
see the ocean—whey taken to it, he was
a'sved-pelt-bound—niaile a spontane
ous collection of' shells along its rest
less shore—there they are, in his little
teal - dna, just as, he himself placed them.
:Wben at thelnines, he collected min
eralsin the'same way. He begged .his
uncle,' over and Over again, to let him
go into this war, who thought ho was
too young to be exposed to all the temp
' tations bf the camp.' He read Abbott's
Life kit Napoleon when ho was so little

his only fault; contempt of danger. Jn

Some of your readers may be interest
ed in a brief sketch of a recent visit- to!
Gettysburg, which I enjoyed, inr com
mon with many others, during the
Meeting of the General Assembly;of the
'Presbyterian church, in Harrisburg:.
Through the courtesy of the officers
of the Itailroadsleading thither, about
three hundred of us, delegates and in
vited guests, were furniShed with freo
tickets,- and a train of elegant cars bor
rowed from the several roads for' this
Governor Geary and his lady, with
Whom, as Members of the church in
which the Assembly met, we had al
ready enjoyed several pleasant inter
views, cordially consented to aecom-
Pally us, and act as'our guides over that
memorable field. $
Our journey lay through some of the
most cultivated and delightful Milan()
valley scenery of the State. S venal
towns, whose names became fa iiliar
during the invasion of General Lee,
Were passed ,in our route;—York, \ ‘ r hose
terrified in habitautssuffered thetns -lees
to be blackmailed by General Ewell to
the tune of $`28,000; -Hanover, and Han
over Junction, where that redoubtable
chief, J. E. 13. Stuart, tapped the Rail
road, and cut the wires; with other
points of like interest.
Four hours brought us to Gettysburg,
where we were met by a Committee,
and conducted to the public square.—
There the ladies and 'venerable were
provided with carriages; while the Gov.
from the center of the Square, announc
ed the programme for the day.
• As no time was to be lost, the whole
company Proceeded at once to the head
quarters °el Gen. Lee, about three-quar= ,
ters of a mile up the Chambersborg
road. This was a small - whitewashed
block-house, at the corner of a grow .:. by
the roadside. Here the excursionists,
mounted upon the wagons and fences,
with their maps - .:outspread, surveyed
the scene. Rev. 13r, Hodges, a witness
of the first day's battle, stood upon a
wagon seat, and pointed out the posi
tions and movements of the troops.—
The assault, the repulse, and final re
treat of our forces through the town to
their strongly intrenehed position on
Cemetery hill, were graphically ,de Piet
ed. •
While the company were returning
to a bountiful collation, prepared by
the Indies of Gettysburg, in the hall of
the fair ground, two of us visited' the
spot where the gallant Reynolds fell.
The way lay across a plowed field,,over
which the scattered hones of unburied
men lay bleaching in all .directions.
Here and there fragments of clothing,
knapsacks, canteens, &c., were encoun
tered. At a corner of the fence enelos
ing a small piece of woods, the intrepid
soldier met his fate, at the hands of
sharpshooters, while reconnoitering the
enemy's position. The scattered trees
:still bear.upon,their trunks the traces
of. their deadly aill).',' Froin:, this. :point
we crossed a meatic;v;,:on our *ay', to
,the Theological Seminary, passing by
tblib - i - sdaretayPs_where the dead were
Here sand there bones migni he--4,—.
' protruding from mingled heaps of earth,
stones, canteens, and kuapaseks, with
which they had been hastily covered.
For, with the utmost dilligence of the
citizens, but a part only df the rebel
dead could receive a decent burial, and
many it is said, for lack of a friendly
hand to cover them, were actually con
sumed by birds and beasts of prey, or
left to rot on the field.
Passing through a little grove covered
with the marks of the battle, we en ter
the Seminary from the rear, and ascend
ed to the Cupola, whence Gen. Led had
reconnoitered our position on 'thel sec
ond day. Here with glass in hand we•
had a fine survey of the field. It ex
tends several miles in each direction,
over a succession of low ridges, green
valleys, and wooded hills, bounded in
the distance by mountains, through the
passes of which the army of Lee so
mysteriously melted away, before their
tardy purSurers.
As we passed through the halls of the
building, our attention was called to
the marks of blood on the pine floor,
where the wounded had lain, whiqh no
scouring has availed to remove. These
traces were especially noticeable in the
library, where many of the wounded
of both armies bled and groaned' and
died together.
After the collation' at the Hall, we
proceeded up the Baltimore pike, to the
corner-stone of the monument, whieh
the Martyred President laid at th 'ded
ication of the National Cemetery. Here
the Assembly, with uncovered I ends,
united in a fervent prayer, led b the
venefablo Dr. Skinner, of R. Y. 'Then

delivered nearly tour years ago'. '

large square blocks of granite on which
are engraved the names of the 'several
States represented. Beyond these, in
'ever widening arcs, are, the tablets of
the dead, marked with name, company

may readily trace their dead without a
From the most available point, the
in .
Governor directed our attention OVe.,
that memorable field, and delineated the
progress of the battle. Turning our
backs upon the town, with the I.illage
cemetery on our left, we could command
ant extended view of the positions of
the left wing of our army from the
hikh pinnacle of Round Top down to
the center, where we stood. 10 the
right, on the long parallel ridges, lay
the right 'wing of the enemy. Here,
near a large peach orchard, a hal -mile
distant, was the scene of the principal
conflict of the second day, in Which
Gen. Sickles bore lo conspicuous apart .

Culp's Hill lies about a mile east of

hill Gen. Geary with three brigades
confronted Ewell with a superior force
on the ridge opposite and held him at
bay for two fearfulday sometimes at
the point of the bayonet. The timber
in the valley bears witness to the teiri-•
ble conflict. Much of it has fallen and
the dead trunks , still standing though
hacked and sawed are still Atli of grape
and minnie balls; some of which we
secured. But alteady ho* changed the
scene. As the Governor remarked the
hand of time has nearly erased all
trabes of the horrid attire... The trenches'
have mostly been filled, and the breast
works broken down, or overrun with
grass. And it was difficult as we stood,
upon the,high places ofthe field, with
tike above us, and the green
and peaceful landscape around us, to
realize that on the third ,day of July,
1863; an embattled host of j 120,000 men,
:advancing along their whole line, in
one mighty desperate char e, were reli
ed back in broken, thine , and disor
dered masses beneath the e oudy conepy
of battle.
But though these art ficial traces
may disappear, yet as the yeare roll on,
the field of Gettysburg will take rank
with the great battle-fields 1 of history.
And the gatitude of all' succeeding gen
erations, shall embalm the memory of
that heroic army, which, by its valor
and devotion, was the means, under
God, of turning the evenly balanced
scales of victory to the side of freedom,
righteousness and peace, in the utrilost
crisis of tile war.
With a certain lord, any centuries
since, resided a little girl, who was an
orphan and his niece. The child he used
with extreme cruelty. - She was frequen
tly heard by the servants, while suflbr
ing from his violence, to cry out : "Good
uncle, kill me not!" Eventually she,
disappeared. Itwas at once assumed
that she , had been murdered by her
uncle. He 'vehemently denied the
charge; but public opinion ran so
strongly against him that he was ar
raigned, convicted and executed. Ten
years, afterward, the child, now grown
to be a tine young woman, turned up
to claim some land which had been de
vised to ber'before her disappearance.
She had taken refuge from• the barbar
ity of her' uncle with a kindhearted
lady, and by her had been conveyed
"beyond sea." Ambrose Gynnett brings
us nearer to our own times. This man.
it will be remembered, vas tried, found
guilty, and hanged for the murder of
his Uncle. The uncle had been sleeping
iii Gynnett's house, which was on the
coast of Kent, the back garden running
down to the seashore. He disappeared.
No body was found ; but a trail of blood
was discovered from 'the house to the
garden end, and there, too, was found
a clasp knife, known to belong to
Gyunett, covered with gore. Gynnett,
protested his innocence, but he was
sentenced to death, and absolutely hung
in chains, or rather in that iron cage
in which the corpses of Malefactors
were suspended from the gibbet until
the birds of the air had picked the flesh
from their bones. By what seemed an
interposition of • Providence Ambrose
,Gynnett did not die. The hangman

preservation, he was pardoned. Many
years afterward, the uncle for whose
supposed assassination Ambrose had
been hanged reappeared. It turned
out that on the night of the alleged
murder, he bad risen from bed with• a
violent attack of bleeding from the nose - .
He bad endeavored to allay this -with
the cold steel- of the clasp knife. He
had gone into the garden in the hope
that the freidi air might stop the bleed
ing. , At the garden 'end ho had been
seized by a press gang, carried at once
on board ship, and conveyed to the
West Indies.
The topic of wrongful executions -oat

happy ending, While Rossini removed
the record from the dusty archives of

A Disappointed Youth.
We shall call him Brown, because if
he was not Brown at first he has been

female loveliness in ail its forms. His

Brown was stiinding on the corner of
Fourth avenue and Fourteenth street,
conversing with some of the - mad wags
who irthabit that locality. A vision of
beauty passed ; - she was a young lady
of Brooklyn, one of the most beautiful
and fascinating of the, belles across the
river. The transcendant beauty of this
loypl . y maiden struck Brown's heart
s4uAte between the eyes, and set that
susceptible organ to bobbing like a pat
ent churn-dasher.
By diligent enquiries he learned her
name and lineage and habitation. Then
his wits were at fault. He consulted
his friends aforesaid. They advised
him to write to her an, ardent letter,
portraying his love, his riches, and his
eagerness for an interview.
"By Jove I'll do it," quoth Brown,
and forthwith, by the help of Claud ,
Melnotte and• Romeo, he compounded a
love letter, which must have. touched
the heart of any one but - a Brooklyn
girl, and sent it over the river. •

What is ."pne-Horae Power."
The use of the term " horse. power,"
is very common ; yet few, except good
mechanics arid pugineers , attach a defin
ite meaning to it , but regard it as indi
cating, loosely, '. about the power which
a single horse,could exert. It is, how
ever, when used in the sense under con
sideration, as definite as possible, and
means the power required to
.lift 33,000
pounds avoirdupois, one foot high in
one minute. •
A horse hitched to the end of 43, rope
over a pulley one foiit in diameter- plac
ed over a dee well, traveling' at the
rate of two anti a half miles per hour,
or 220 feet per minute, will draw up 150
pounds thesame distance he travels.--_
The force this exerted is called in

approximation to the average amount'
of continuous power it is fair to demand,
of a strong horse. If we multiply the ,
weight -raised (150) by the number of
feet it was, moved per minute (220,) the
producb will, be the number of pounds
which the sane power would raise one
foot high in the same length of time,
(33,000 pounds.)
The dynamometer is an instrument
made for measuring power, particularly
that .exertedin drawing. Those used
for testpg: ; the draft of agricultural in
struineula,lire- simply very strong bal
ances, or spring steelyards, graduated
to indicate the power required to raise
any weight, within reasonable limit at
the rate of two and a half miles per.
hour. When we apply thodynamome - ,4
ter in ascertaining the draft of machines
if the index indicates 150 pounds, it
shows that the horse is required to draw
just as hard as he would, do if raising
150 pounds out of a well, with a - rope
over a putty one foot in diameter, at the
rate of two and a half miles an hour,
and so for other,weights.
The velocity at which 'a team mimes
is to be considered, as well as the weight
to be raised or the load to be drawn.. If
the horse travels faster than two and a
htilf mileS per hour, while raising 160
pounds out -of a well, he exerts more
than one horse power, if he walks slower
than this, he does not exerts force equal
to one horse power.
In ascertaining the draught of a plow,
or mower and reaper, by drawing taster
than two and a half miles perhour,tte
dynamotneter Would indicate more than
the correct draught ; and by ,driving
SloWer, th O draught would appear to be
less than h. really is. In testing . the
draught of . machines ,la team, should
always nievnat the rate of two and a
half miles per hour, 220 feet perminute,
sviiich is the universally accepted rate
with referenCe to which. dynarticaneters
are graduated, and an easy one to ap
proximate in driving With ahnost any_
kind of team.
