WELLINGTON AT WATERLOO.
"I rcmnikcil a day or two ago in
one or your correspondent's letters
a saying often attributed to the
Duke of Wellington. 'Would to
God night or the Prussians would
come.' Now, the idea of a man
of such iron nerves, coolness under
every difficulty, and perfect con
fidence in himself, making nt any
time such n desponding exclamation
is simply absurd. I will, therefoie,
give a perfectly authentic saying of
the Duke at the crisis of the battle.
Tho late M. de Blaquioro told me
one day that at a dinner at the late
Duke of Richmond's the subject of
Waterloo was mentioned, when the
Duke of Richmond gave some of his
reminiscences of the battle. The
Duke of Richmond, when Lord
March, had been Wellington's aid-dc-camp
in the Peninsular, had been
severely wounded, returned home,
and left the service. Of course lie
was with his family at Brussels.
Late in the day of the great battle,
when riding well in front, he met the
Duke of Wellington. 'Charles,' said
Wellington, 'what are you doing
here?' 'I might ask your Grace the
same question,' said March. 'No,'
said Wellington, 'I am where my
duty calls me ; you have no business
here.' Then in answer to a question
of Lord March, the Duke said : 'I
can hold my position here till night,
and if the Prussian come up in
time I will give him the d dest
licking he ever had.'
"Now this remark of the Duko,
which is perfectly, authentic, and
was told by the Duke of Richmond
himself, any one acquainted with the
Duko of Wellington's character,
would admit to be very much in
his manner." Letter in Toronto
Globe, January 31st.
WELLINGTON BEFOltE THE PENINSULAR
He (the Duke) seemed to lapse
in a kind of reverie, and remained
silent so long that I asked him what
he was thinking of? He replied,
"Why, to say the truth, I am think
ing of the French that I am going to
fight. I have not seen them since
the campaign in Flanders, when
they were capital soldiers, and a
dozen years of victory under Bona
parte must have made them better
still. They have besides, it seems,
a new system of strategy, which has
out-maneuvred and overwhelmed
all the armies of Europe. 'Tis
enough to make one thoughtful ;
but, no matter ; my die is cast ; they
may overwhelm me, but I don't
think they will outmaneuvre me.
First, because I am not afraid of
them, as everybody else seems to
be; and secondly, because, if what
I hear of their system of maneuvres
be true, I think it a false one as
against steady troops. I suspect all
the Continental armies were more
than beaten before the battle began.
I, at least, will not be frightened
beforehand." The. Croher Papers,
THREE FUTILE ATTEMPTS AT
A London despatch of Feb. 23
gives the following account of a
hangman's unprecedented bung
ling: One of the most singular incidents
ever connected with an execution or
an attempted execution for murder,
happened to-day at Exeter, on tho
occasion of carrying out a death
sentence passed upon John Lee, re
cently condemned to bo hanged for
the murder of Miss Emma A. W.
Keyse, at Babbacombe, near Tor
quay, November 15th last. Three
attempts wero made to execute Lee,
but each attempt proved futile, the
drop failing to work successfully.
Tho execution was consequently
Details of tho futile attempt to
hang Lee make the case tho most
horrible that ever degraded the gib
bet in England. At first Lee was
perfectly firm, and went to the
scaffold undaunted. When the first
attempt to hang him failed, the
prisoner's spirits remained unbro
ken. He was led from under the
gallons, and marched back to his
cell with a firm step. When first
placed upon tho trap he resigned
himself completely but firmly into
tho hands of tho executioners. Ho
stood motionless during tho piclimi
nary proceedings, and nhen tho
noose was placed and tho spring was
about to bo touched ho insula an ap
parent effoil to adjust his body to
the expected drop, ho that death
might be as quick as possible. When
tho murderer was made to icalize
that the gibbet, had not done its
work nnd lie was not yet hanged, he
appeared to start as if from a night
mare, but quickly recovered liimsolf.
The machine wns then carefully
overhauled and the wood woik was
found wet and swollen, so that tho
trap tcfiiscd to work. After being
oiled and tried until thought all
right, the prisoner was again brought
forth and tho same scene as before
was then enacted. Once again was
the wretched man led away and the
trap a second time examined nnd
oiled, and for tho second time pro
nounced all right ; and for the third
time the prisoner took his stand
upon the trap and the third time did
the gibbet refuse to do its work.
The strain nud suspense now over
taxed Lee. He sank down in a
swoon, and had to be carried awa
from the place. No words can give
an adequate idea of tho painfulncss
of the sceno. A kind of overpower
ing dismay, like that of superstition,
seomed to have got control of the
Sheriffs and officers. The gibbet
was deserted, and no one mado any
more attempts to put it in working
order. The man that was to have
been hanged was limp, motionless,
and in a most pitiable condition,
lying in his prison cell dazed and
stupefied, and physically exhausted.
The Sheriff decided to abandon his
task. He closed up the execution
yard and went down to the post
office and telegraphed Sir William
Vernon Harcourt, Home Secretary,
the full history of the horrible fail
ure to execute Lee, and asked for
A CLERGYMAN'S WRATH.
Says a New York despatch of Feb.
21: Rev. Dc Witt Talmage sends
a ferocious letter to the Legislature
of New Jersey, replying to the reso
lutions censuring him which were
offered in the Assembly a few days
since. He quotes from the Legis
lative proceedings of one year ago,
in which the Speaker aud several
members used blasphemous and pro
fane language in open session. He
says: "You fly into a rage at some
thing I am alleged to have said in
regard to the behavior of some of
your members on that occasion.
Let me express my utter contempt
for the members who then and on
last Tuesday made such an asinine
exhibition of themselves. The lan
guage used on those occasions would
disgrace a mule-driver on the tow
path of the Raritan canal. You
have no right by your vulgar behav
ior to depreciate a State which many
of us are proud to call the place of
our nativity. You charge that I
seek notoriety in attacking you.
That is absurd. No one for such a
purpose would assail such insignifi
cant men as those who went into that
Legislature and indulged in such
scurrility and whose names I would
expect to see in the calendar of a
police court. Surely I if wanted tho
reputation of skilful hunting I
would not go to shooting muskrats.
The only merciful explanation of
the behavior of last March is that
the members may have been over
stimulated by crooked whisky, com
monly called "New Jersey light
ning." As my acrimonious antago
nists threaten me with a lawsuit and
arraignment before the bar of their
House, I will say that I am at home
in Brooklyn every evening, and I
would come in a pure missionary
spirit and teach thorn a lesson in
common decency, which they ard
wofully in need of learning."
