MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 29, 1865.
A Rich Story.
A Parkersburg paper says that sever
' al members of the Legislature took care
at Grafton late on the evenin; of the
ltlth ult., for Wheeling, and among the
number was Mr. G., of somewhat large
proportions physically, and a Mr. D., of
proportional undersize. Thep) two, the
stalwart Mr. G., and the smoothed•faced
little Mr. D., took a berth together, it
seems, in a sleeping car. The little
man laid behind, and the good-natured,
waggish Mr. G., before. Mr. D., soon
was snoring furiously. Mr. G., more
restless under hie legislative burdens
soon arose, and was sitting by the stove,
when an elderly lady came aboard and
desired a sleeping berth. "All right,
madam," said Mr. G., "I took a berth
with my son, and you can occupy my
place in that berth where my little boy
is sleeping..' Taking G., at, his word,
the lady disrobed, and laid down with
the "boy." After a quiet repose of
some time, the boy, Mr. D., became
restless from some cause, and began to
kick around, to the great annoyance of
the old lady. So in a maternal manner
she patted the boy on the back and
said, "Lie still, sonny; pa said I might
sleep with you." "Who are yon,?" said ,
the Legislator, "I am no boy I lam a
member of the West Virginia Legisla
ture !" It is said the . old lady swooned.

PIINISHNEIT ON THE INSTANT.-By one
of our Illinois exchanges we learn that
a few days since a soldier's wife, living
in the south ' part of Macon county,
came to De4atur for the purpose of re
ceiving at the express office a package
of $2OO sent her by her husband in the
army. Being unable to furnish the
proof of her identity, she was obliged to
return without the money, and was sub
sequently accompanied by her brother
in-law, who furnished the required
proof. 'On returning home she placed
the money under her pillow. Some
time daring the night a man, whom she
supposed to be a negro, broke open the
door and demanded the money. There
being a fire in the fire-place sufficient to
light the room, the woman threw the
money on the floor, and as the ruffian
stooped to pick it up, dealt him a blow
with a poker that broke his neck. The
neighbors were aroused, and on washing
the dead man's face the robber proved
to be 'her brother-in-law.
A MASONIC FACT.—Dr. R. G. Scott,
Past Grand Master, in an address de
livered years ago, made the following
statement. It is honorable to the Ma
sonic Institution—and we presume the
members of that ancient body- will . be
pleased to read it and see it circulated
"From sources of information on
which I entirely rely, I state the fact
that fifty at least of those who signed
the Declaration of Independence were
Masons, and' the same history informs
us that every Major General of the Rev
olutionary army was a Mason, save one
—that one was Benedict Arnold.
g i r The late Dr. William J.:Walker,
of Newport, R. 1., left $220,000 to his
midow, four daughters, one son, and the
widow and children of another son; $40,-
000 in legacies of $l,OOO each to female
acquaintances, and the remainder of his
property, amounting to about $1,000,000
is divided equally between Amherst and
Tufts Colleges, the Institute of Techno•
logy, and the Boston Society of Natur
al History, making to each of these in
stitutions the munificent donation of
$250,000. In addition to • these large
sums left to be disposed of by the will,
he gave $400,000 to various objects du:
ring his life.
e . In answer to a letter from the
Chairman of the Twenty-second Ward
Draft Relief Committee, Provost Mar
shal Dodge, states that New York city
will be positively required to fill her
quota under the last call, and that so
soon as any assistant provost marshal
finds himself not fully occupied in re
ceiving recruits, the draft will be re
sumed. Maj. Dodge concludes : "Un
less ordered to the contrary by the War
Department, I shall exact from New
York city every man of her quota, and
the sooner the people make up their
minds that the men must be furnished,
the better it will be for all concerned.h
ar A lady, going out from Vicks

there'was found in her shoes'an accurate

ANOTHER ARAM:SS SOLDIER.-Mr. Al-
fred A. Stratton, of Jamestown, Chau
tauqua county, N. Y., called upon us on
Monday. Mr. S. is but 18 years of age,
though very tall and well shaped, and
has been a soldier in Company G of the
147th New York Regiment, going to the
seat of war in August, 1863. On the 18,
of June, in the engagement before Pe
tersburg, a.solid shot took off both his
arms above the elbow, and although for
a time a great sufferer, be has recovered
from the wounds, but is left, of course,
in a most unfortunate and dependent
condition. Be is at present at the New
Englansl Rooms, on Broadway, and
would be glad to see his friends or those
who are friendly toward him.
Mr. S. states that there are four per
sons known to hiM who have suffered
during the war the loss of both their
arms. They are: Plunkett of Massa•
chusetts, Dunphy of Rochester, N. Y.,
John H. Beary of Ohio, and himself.
He further states that there is one other
man (if what is left of him may be call
ed "a man") who is still more entitled
to the commiseration and charity of
mankind than either of the persons
above referred to, he being a Pennsyl
vania soldier, whose name is unknown to
our informant, but who, to his positive
knowledge, on the same day when be
himself was wounded, suffered the loss
of both arms and both legs and ONE• EYE,

to expose his life unnecessarily, as he
had done at Richmond, and assuring
him of the earnest desire of all his
country -Men to close, the war he had so
successfully, conducted. After acknowl-
edging the receipt_ of the letter, the
President replied, April 14th, the day
of his death, and said :
"I intend to adopt, the advice of .my

A silent Pilgrim tarries here
On his way to the west—
Only tarries for a night and a day,
On his slow and winding way,
To his home in the west—
To hie tomb in the west
He has fill'd a noble sphere :
And how well--
All our people love to tell,
As all nations soon shall tell,
And all future ages tell,
That he fill'd it passing well !
Yea. he fill'd our highest place
With a glory, with a grace,
With a gentleness and love
Our highest praise above :
So calm through all the strife,
Not counting dear his life,
Warring only, from the first, with •
heart that yearned.for peace—
'Till be saw the Slave's release I
Then God call'd his name,
And seal'd up his fame,
And his own release came !
So let him rest I
In our Hall of Independence—let him
In the circle of our Fathers—let him rest :
In the midst of moaning cannon—let
In the midst of sobbing belle—let him
In the midst of falling tears—let him
vershadowed by our mourning—let
With fresh flowers upon his breast :
Our Martyr Guest!
For a night, for a day,
On his slow and winding way
To his welcome in the west :
To his home in the west:
To his tomb—in the west—
Where the wicked cease from troubling
and the weary are at rest !
