Ai'lemns Ward on " C;!io.N."
.The hall, barbarous! cu.IleI the Mijnaon,
MV the li-rston Advertiser of Oct. 11, was !Ieti
Lwt evening U ib utuijat capacity, including
the iacunTenier.t t-II-tj anJ eeats jLic-ed upon
the platform, with an audience eager to hear
the funny things which they expected from the
Iir of .rtem-is "Ward," that is CharUa F.
Hr-jwac. K. SjT wjj the audience diar.r.oint
rd. The lecturer hold their attention f r a full
hir and something mure, while perpetually
j ro Aing their mirth, ra.in rapidly from
topic tj topic, with the ghosts" perpetually in
i?w and never reaching them.
Mitr Ward began by apologizing for making
his appearance in the ilei-jnaon inetad of the
Trejauot Tuutle, and al for tle etate of Lis
vjice; he waa troubled with the bronchitis, and
had lxa reli-iWy informed by a distinguished
iurgeoo thai hia complaint wo the paralhlo--raiuaattc
foreclosure of diaphragmatic thorax,
vvery severe on the voice, and also on account of
lits bring the ttore throat ; he never had the
p.ronchitia b.fre, but thb euinmer he ha? had
ft, dreadful mess of them : he believed he had
Xibout 2-5 left ; if he had been in the army he
4ou!d bare beerwunputated bofure thb time;
Vie h id learned that they amputate on the slight
ft provocation ; there was a young man in the
Army on the Rappahannock, on this bide of the
rivr, who had an attack of the measly, only a
few ; about, fifteen he should think, and the
surgeon amputated him. lie said that be waa ne
ver embarrassed only on one occasion, and that waa
a secret, but ho thought he might tell it there,
he wm assured it would go uj further, as there
were ladfes present. There waa a xaitten con
nected with it ; the young lady waa now married,
he hoped she waa happy, he waa. He differed
from the rolling tone, inasmuch aa he gathered
not moss, but colds ; speaking of the rolling
f-tone. why should it gather moas? what ia the
thn eubject, eaid he. Nor did he believe with
those persona who taught oa to rij with the
lark," he should rise when he pleased, Le bad
no objection to the lark, but would prefer to rise
with gold, it would be much more profitable.
Sjme say death is like fcleep," w etonep are
like rocks, he would rather be rocked to sleep,
than ftoned to death. He 6a Id he wanted to
go to California by way of New Orleans, he
would like to sail down the Miabitippi, as a
matter of economy, because it was fret; ; but he
dearly loved the sea, and would call the attention
of the audience to those favorite lines of Byron :
iu which be speaks of the sea, only he didn't
remember the lines. His lecture was merely to ;
amusek not to instruct be couldn't instruct, i
and to explain the ghost. He was fund of chil
dren, he loved little boys and girls, but be loved
large girls jo&t as well. He didn't like those
people who were against new things, why those
people even made fun of Noah and his ark and
refused to join in his regatta even after he had
offered tbem dead head tickets ; they said there
would be no rain, but those who perused the
daily papers knew better, fur they read that the
rain did come and gobbled them all up. Noah
was right. Now be believed in everything that
was new ; new bonnets, new bases of operation,
new ships, new boots, excepting neuralgia.
Some old things were very good such aa old
friends, old hooks, old Uourbon, in case of sick
news, and above all the old flag. Applause.
But bo was rambling from his subject, he bad
resolutely determined to explain the ghosts. He
might have taken for his subject iirigham
Young, although he didn't know anything about
him eiopt he lived in Utah and was fioiuewhat
married. He might also speak of pbytical cul
ture ; he liked to ve our young men developing
their muscles. He didn't want his jour old
aunt to go d-wn to the grave, with the i lea that
be had never seen a fight, therefore he went to
see a couple ol barn yard fowls fight, but he was
orry to say that neither of them were killed.
Professor Windship the great lecturer on physi
cal culture i- said lu lift twelve men. At om of
his (Ward's) b.-ctures in the West he announced
if twelve agreeable young ladies would step for
ward, provided their parents wre willing, lie
would lift them all, one at a time or perish in
the attempt ; be was sorry to say that none came '
forward. He did think of speaking on I ranee;
he thought it was a pity that there should be ',
any trouble between our country and France,
w should remember that noble young French- ;
man who came here many years ago, and drew :
hia sword against the foe ot American Liberty, j
bis name was Lafayette. Applause. But if
Ixui J. Napoleon should attempt to come here
with hi army, we would advise him to bring a
good supply of burial caw, for there vrculd be
a much larger French funeral than after the ,
battle of Waterloo. Applause. He was afraid :
to lecture on England, on account of his bad ,
temper, although England desered a lecture. '
Some people tremble at a war with England ; let ;
tis not tremble, said he. The British Lion has :
been over here twice, and each time has bad bis '.
tail considerably shortened, if he came here again :
he would have to go home without any ; bis tail '
waa not like the tales in the New York Ltdgtr, ,
it could not he continued. He would have '
opoken on music but it would be absurd to t-pcak
about anything he knew nothing of, but he ;
would give his head of hair to be a young trou- ;
bodore singing love-songs to hia lady-love and :
playing on bis guitar, und it was a very good
head of hair indeed, but as the soldier said to his
sweetheart, it was bard to part. He was ,
acquainted with two lovely young sisters who .
sang and played a song you can get it at the ;
munic stores, it'sa new thing. entitled, When
this cruel war is over," and they could not ing
anything else, in fact they knew nothing but that i
ere air ; now that song is very pretty but to
have it sung by every American citizen for Eix
months it becomes monotonous, they might learu
something else for u change, euch as John ;
Brown's knaack is strapped upon his soul,"
or anything that's new. lie once knew a young :
and very much unmarried lady about 52 years (
of age, who played on the accordion and used to i
ing My heart throbs f yr thee," one day shud- ;
dering fr fear she might wean, be sweetly said,.'
let it throb. Africa is a god subject to lec
ture on very good ; he would lecture on Africa
for a few moments. Africa is pleasantly situated
on the map, but people don't seem to see it in that ;
light, probably because it is so dark ; it has all j
the modern jaiprovementa, the hotels are kept on
the Ethiopian plan. Africa has no Congress, .
and other good habits; its literature wad of the
first order, here be read a poeui which he credited
to a young lady belonging in Africa, beginning,
or all the Uu! beoeath ti
litre m the Uol called Afriki.' ,
which be called quart measure. Africa bad no
rioter, its jeople were generally disposed to see !
the draft enforced. Soma of its inhabitants :
search for fame, others for the pursuit of happi
ness ; search is life. A gentleman of Connecti
cut started a graveyard in Africa. He did a fine :
business and laid up property, he inclosed it with
a red fence, and the people began to die as it was ;
so nice to be buried in the burying ground with
the red fence. This is important if true. He
would like to say a few words on people who put
on airs ; he didn't believe in airs ; New England
j eople put on an air or two in the West. He
had a grandmother, there waa nothing remark- :
able ia that, he didn't boast any originality by
the fact, lie suppos"d there were many others !
afflicted in the same way. Ilia grandmother I
lived d.wn in Maine, Maine was Ida native -State,
it was a big State, he gnessed it was the
largest State in the Union aa the geography folks
alway put it first on the list ; it'a a fine State,
none know it but to hare it," be owns a farm
down tbTP, wnnld lik to sII it ; but to return ;
: to grandmother, he had but two regular grand
: mother, two wire dearer than a dozen. He
I b-.Iieved we ought to love our relations, he couldn't
; say nv-irh for our foreign relativns, exoept Russia;
j if the Emperor of Kuia came to New York he
J wju'd invito him to take his valine right around
i to his b-Kirding-house and it wouldn't cost him a
i1 cent. His grandmother carried her cooking ttove
! fcj C'incir.nati with her, and said she didn't be
I live they had any good milk there and she
t thought !-rje would carry her cow; he told her
they had nothing but oxen there and she said,
O my -'" He told her that they were in a very
barbarous state there, that the young ladies
didn't kn jw what courting infant ; but she said
she didn't believe that. Ambition was the next
division of his subject under the general bead of
ghosts. He thought hiu hearers miht think he
waa running too often from his subject, tut he
meant t j make forward movements on the ghost,
but was repulsed and was now demoralized. The
great merit of his lecture was that it contained
so many things that had nothing to do with bis
subject. Mr. Lincoln paid in his letter to Hackett
the actor, that he thought Macbeth was wonder
ful, Artemaa wondered what he would think of
bis lecture. Ambition is a terrible thing. Cicaar
was killed by Brutus and eh eh (hesitating)
there was some excuse for Brutus but none for eh
eh ; where were the police at the time the riot
was going on ? Alexander the Great, old Aleck,
he wept because there were no more worlds to
couquer," if he was alive now he would be in
favor of giving him a Brigadier-Generalship.
After t peaking at some length on the sin of ambi-
j tjon he thought he would make a few remarks on
j poetry. He liked to wander forth when the dew
was on the grass, a kind of way the dew had of
dewing, it dews somewhat more in summer than
it dews in winter, when the larks are climbing
in agile swiftness, when the robin, that never
harmed a child, is skipping, when the swallows
are swallowing, and the bees beeswaxing, on
such occasions he felt poetic. It wa9 a pity that
some of our newspaper toets were not born hens.
! then their lays would have been valued by the
! doxen. Nor did he think of fashion for u sub
ject ; he would relate an ancient story, it was
not original with him, relating to a fowl, which
was killed and skinned and boiled four days, and
not content with that the neighbors took it and
par boiled it, and then thev jna boiled it, and
notwithstanding all the pains bestowed upon it,
when it wus put upon the table it actually crow
ed. He never believtd this story until he heard
it toid by a reliable gentleman in Washington
. I A .. J J -1 1 I " IT - I 1.
I w no aiicuueu to me telegraphing. lie uiougiii
; ot grappling with a new subject but it required
l a great mind and he didn't have any ot that
j stock with him. This new subject was slavery,
: will you listen to me while I speak a few Words
of about four hours length, on Slavery? Uut I
; ought to he sp-eakiig on ehoMS." But before
j touching the ghosts he would like to city u few
i words on love, courtship, and marriage ; he would
't like to depict a rustic picture. scene, a farm
house; heavy storni, say a north-easter ; Mir9
i Mehi table Baxter and John Smith seated near a
Jog-Lre, oiazing cheerily on the hearth ; what
care they for the storm und wind? John hitches
bis chair a little towards MehitaMe, and Mehita
ble hitches her chair towards John, then they
hitch aain, and Mehitable speaks right up with
t some lirmness manifest in her voice, saying.
j John, 1 d rather you J not; but they hitch
j again until they can't l any hitcher ; then John's
;. arm works around her waiet; really, he didn't
know how it got there, but it was there ; then
; lipa touched, and she soki-d right up again, with
: i.-rbap9 a little more firmness in her voice, 44 I'd
: rather you'd not," and he notted like a man. It's
a bard thing not to have any wife,
I No otie to lore,
None to crt.
No gentle heart to get up in the morning and
I build the fire. He gave borne very important
j advice to the married and those about to be mar
i ried, and then announced that the time had
' arrived when it was usual for him to rest his
i voice, and he Would do so by continuing in the
I f-amc tone, faying a few words upon abrurd peo
! pie ; such was the man from Illinois' who, seeing
the Prince of Walts riding through New York
j city said he would rather be in that young man's
place than j resident of a tenij ranee society ; so
also was the old maid who cried all day because
her new bouse hud a bow-window in it ; the
; laugh cornea in on the word low, it may be
ejelled beau," he was proud of that joke;
and the conscript who wished to be exempted
Lx-cau.-'e he had such uu enormous ar r-tite, and
the private who wanted to resign because he
couldn't conscientiously stand by the cmancir a-
tion proclamation ; and the man who insisted,-
even aft'-r the entreaties of his wife, bin family,
neighbors, children, his wife's Aunt Elizabeth
who was staying there at the time, (this has no
connection with the story only she was staying
at hia house during the season,) be insisted in
drinking his soup out ot a junk bottle with a
string in it, whether they bad company or not.
He was apprenticed to a printer in New Hamp
shire ; one day he had a dispute with his em
ployer, who threw him down stairs ; he saw in a
moment that he was prejudiced, and he bade him
farewell, forever. It waa a touching parting,
such as might bring tears from the eyes of Capt.
Senimes of the English neutral war steamer.
During bis journey home he had to eat some
thing; he had no money, he could not beg "the
Wampanoag cannot leg:" therefore he became
a repairer of clocks ; he stopped at a farmer's
door, and asked if he had any clocks that
wouldn't go? the farmer replied be had, and he
said he would make it go. He took it to pieces,
and then ate dinner, looking upon the wreck of
the clock and perfectly aware that he could never
put it together again,"he told the farmer that he
felt dizzy and would go out into the free air.
Immediately after getting out of the house he
flew like the light gazelle" or anything else
that g'es very fast. Thus our political clock
makers take the great national clock to pieces,
eat dinner, and never want to see it put together
again. But the hour had passed when his lec
ture should have been concluded, therefore he had
no time to explain the ghost question. He would
however sail for California in a few days, and
would speak on the ghost question there; ladies
and gentlemen holding tickets to this lecture
would be admitted without extra charge.
