Margaret O'Neill Eaten.
A woman of four generations, she was
a vivacious girl when Napeleon was first
consul ; she saw Webster, Clay, and
Calhoun enter upon their public careers,
and outlived the last survivor of them by
mere than a quarter of a ceHtury. Ne
ether American woman, save perhaps the
wife of the first president, has exercised
se great an influence in affairs of state She
was, se te speak, part and parcel of two
administrations, actively present during
one, and a strong primary motive-power
towards the ether.
She could leek back en the stirring
events of nearly ninety years, and te the
"all which I saw" she might without
egotism have added "part of which I
was. " Her life has been a succession of
romances, as incredible as any set down in
fiction. Indeed, the romancer who should
take the daughter of an Irish tavern
keeper, raise her te the highest station in
the land, endue her with the power te
break up a cabinet and create a new ad
ministration, and send her te be flattered
in foreign courts, would be charged, with
having pictured the impossible. Yet this
is the literal record of her life.
Mrs. Eaten has been compared te
Madame Bonaparte. Beyond the facts
that both married above their stations,
both carried abroad the prestige of Ameri
can womanly beauty, and both ended their
days in comparative obscurity, there is
little resemblance. Madame Bonaparte
owed her brief honors te a .temporary re
lation with royalty which she had neither
the power te maintain nor the heart te re
gret, save in se far as its less hurt her
ambition. She was merely gilded by the
magic of the Bonaparte legend ; while Mrs.
Eaten, by sheer force of native wit and
will, net only wrought out her own social
destiny, but had much te de with the for
tunes of ethers.
Pretty Peggy O'Neill was new a United
States senator's wife. A few weeks later,
when by reason of General Jacksen's clan
nish friendship General Eaten was made
secretary of war, she found herself placed
among the ladies of the cabinet placed,
but net recognized. The ladies tefused
te call en her. At once General Jacksen
took the matter up in his usual het way.
During the first months of his administra
tion he thought of little else save devising
ways and means by which he might
silence the calumniators of Mrs. Eaten.
He made his secretary's life a burden te
him with correspondence. The registcis
of New Yerk hotels were ransacked te
refute slanders. Mrs. Eaten's cnaracter
was gravely discussed in cabinet meetings.
The pastor of the church which the presi
dent attended imprudently appeared and
testified against her, the only result being
the less of his presidential parishioner.
Foreign clerical aid was imported, and
church leagued with state te crush her
whom it evidently looked upon as the
" scarlet woman " of the administration.
The cabinet was divided into two oppos
ing factions, and the line of division
stretched down through both houses of
Congress, and extended throughout the
There is a strong parallel between Mrs.
Eaten and the Countess of Blcssingten.
Beth sprang from the same Celtic stock,
and owed their eventful careers greatly te
that sparkling vivacity and native wit that
are a heritage of race, Beth studied and
mastered the art of pleasing, and both pos pes
sessessed in net unequal degree the play
of fancy, quickness of apprehension, close
ness of observation, and readiness of le
partee which make a woman queen of the
salon. Beth were married young, and
were early left widows ; a second husband
seemed te have been only waiting the de
mise of the first, and in each case it was
the second marriage which brought for
tune and position. Beth were daugh
ters of the people, and after brilliant for fer fer
tune met reverses. Mrs. Eaten never
wrote books ; but I fancy she had quite as
much power of analysis and satire as went
into Lady Blessington's society novels,
and that both women were endowed with
intuitive powers and quickness of appre
hension rather than with real intellectual
ability. But probably the one point above
all ethers in which they most strongly re
sembled each ether was in the influence
which each exercised in an eminent degree
ever men and women far superior in intel
lect te herself. Stilson Hutckins in Inter
national Review for Feb., 1880.
Facts and Fancy
Hew a Gusher Wrete About Jsnny Llnd and
Uew a Practical Han Writes.
In a gushing article upon a great singer
of the past generation, the Louisville
Courier-Journal says :
' Jenny Lind's
hair was a marvel of beauty, and it framed
a face which one never can forget. When
this beautiful creation left the United
States she had married little Goldschmidt.
Did anybody ever explain hew she hap
pened te fall in love with that foxy little
pianist ? When the steamer left for Liver
pool we forget hew many hundreds of
Jenny Lind's admirers came down te see
her off. The wharf was jammed. People
steed en boxes and barrels. We shall
never forget the closing act. Iligh upon
the wheel-house the Lind steed, as rav
ishingly lovely as the Venus Anadyeraene
from the blue sea waves. The wind was
blowing down the bay, and caressed her
loose hair, which looked like an aureole in
the sunlight. Her dress, stirred by the
wind, clung about her form, and with
one hand she waved her adicux
and pressed her handkerchief te
her face, for she was weeping. New,
a beautiful woman in tears is a sight te
melt the hearts of tyrants, and en that oc
casion it might be written in the stereo
type way, ' there was net a dry eye in the
house,' except the little eyes of the dimin
utive Goldschmidt, who steed besu'e the
glorious woman he had wen, with his arms
folded tightly across his breast, the lanceo lancee
lated ends of his long yellow mustache
bending te the stiff breeze, and his gaze
fixed upon the raaintepmast of a neighbor
ing vessel. Emotionless was little Otte
Goldschmidt ; hard and stony looked Otte
Goldschmidt by the side of that warm, pal
pitating aggregation and concentration of
female beauty, whose sympathetic nature,
ever se attractively manifested in her sing
ing, yielded te the circumstances and in
dulged in passieuate tears. Se she disap
peared among the harbor mists and throng
ing vessels out into the bay, out into the
And the St. Leuis Republican responds :
" All of which would seem te indicate that
Jenny Lind was a wonderfully beautiful
woman, when the unvarnished truth is
that she was uncommonly plain, even in
youth. She had blonde hair, net as fash
ionable then as new, and it 'framed' a
genuine Scandinavian face the face of a
Swedish peasant eirl who would net be a
belle in her own country. High and well-de
fined cheek bones, a very substantial nose,
and an uncommonly large mouth were its
most distinctive features. Yet the face
was charming, because se honest and
open; se full of sympathy, generosity,
kindness, and all womanly virtues. Jenny
Lind was no mere ' the "Venus Anadyo Anadye
mene ' than Julius Caesar was, but she was
net only a splendid sengstress, but a noble
woman which all splendid sengtresscs are
net. The nearest we have had te her in true
womanliness was Parcpa Resa. Her
marriage was a love-match. Singular as
it may seem te the Courier-Journal writer,
she did ' fall in love with the foxy little
pianist,' and as far as heard from has never
regretted it. He made her a geed husband
- though we believe through bad invest
ments he lest the most of her hard earned
money and she has been te him a faith
ful and affectionate wife. Jenny Lind
was the first of the first-class prima donnas
te visit this country, and she has left be
hind a mere graceful fame than any of
her successors ; a fame in which the artist's
merit and the woman's character are se
closely and happily blended that we cannot
separate them if we would, and would net
if we could.
An Unwritten Chapter of the Late War.
The year 1861 closed gloomily for the
cause of the Union. The army of the Po
tomac under McCIellan had nei made the
expected move ; Masen and Slidell had
been surrendered; Congress was surround
ed with the gravest difficulties. Early in
1862 Burnside's fleet was wrecked, and
Cameren's resignation made room for a
new secretary of war, of whose capacity
and energy the people had no acurate
knowledge. Great expectations were en
tertained of important movements and
successes in what was popularly called the
West, but of what might be planning or
happening in the far West, in these re
mote teiriteiies which were net even cer
rectly laid down en the maps, net one per
son in one hundred thousand, from the
president down, had a thought or a care ;
though a most anxious solicitude would
net have been misplaced, as shall forth
with appear. '
Surveying further the situation in the
far Seuth and West, we find in the first
that the rebels had complete possession of
the great state of Texas. Twiggs had trai
torously surrendered all the troops under
his command, with forts, arms, ammuni
tion and supplies of all kinds, and many of
the men had been paroled. This vast re
gion afforded an admirable base for ex
tended military operations, and it was
net long before advantage was sought te be
taken of it, in the autumn of 1861. It was
somewhat as fellows that the Confederate
leaders argued the matter.
Assuming that they could held their own
east of the Mississippi, a move could be
made westward of that river having every
premise of success and which if successful
would give immense material and moral
advantage te the Seuth. The plan was
nothing less extensive than the capture of
California and the subjection of five ether
states and territories.
Fer the execution of this brilliant enter
prise the pregramme was simple. A pow
erful column should match by El Pase into
New Mexico, defeat or flank Canity at
Feit Craig, and occupy Santa Fe. Next
would come Fert Union, containing an ad
miral arsenal and supply depot, fitted in
geed season by Jb leyd with a most conve
nient stock of arms, ammunition and
stores. Thence the march forward would
be easy, and the prizes would fall rapidly
into the hands of the troops. Indians and
Mormons were probable and valuable
allies. The sure result could hardly fail te
be the complete and speedy control of a
rich state, a splendid sea-coast, and forts
from which men-of-war and privateers
could issue te sweep the Pacific. This
would hasten recognition by European na
tions, would lead te the breaking of the
Atlantic blockade by England and France
and then the end would seen come.
What, then, were the weak points in
the plan? They were three. First, the
rebels made the mistake, which they re
peated ever and ever again, of attaching
importance te the support te come from
disaffected people and districts where the
general sentiment was loyal. Second,they
were hopelessly misled about the senti
ments of the Mexican population of New
Mexico, and forget or ignored the ani
mosity born years before of the Texan
Santa Fe expedition, and still deeply rank
ling. Third, they made a fatal miscalcula
tion in underrating the stern patriotism,
the unflinching courage, and the fierce
energy of the men who were laying the
foundation of our "Centennial state" of
Colerado while braving privation and
hardship in the search for geld. That
these events were net known and have net
since been known in the East is
hardly surprising, in view of the fact
that ether matters of transcendent im
portance, far nearer home, were con
temporaneous with them. Fert Henry
was taken en February 6, Roanoke
Island en February 8,- and Fert
Donelseu en February 16. The battle of
Pea Ridge ended en March 8, the Monitor
fought the Mcrrimac en March 9, and the
great engagement at Shiloh occurred en
April 6 and 7. Probably net one in ten
thousand suspected that such a threaten
ing movement was making in the rear of
our armies ; and it would have been equal
ly surprising and terrible .te have heard
suddenly that a junction had been effected
by the rebels with the Mormons, and that
mischief had already been done which
could be repaired, if at all, only at the cost
of hundreds of lives and millions of money.
Instead of this the bright days of May
saw Sibley, disheartened and demoralized,
resting at that same Fert Bliss from which
he had marched with fell purpose four
months before. The valley of the Rie
Grande would knew him no mere, and he
doubtless sought his accustomed consola
tion in the flowing bowl. International
Review for February, 1880. Augustus A.
A Torrent of Peat.
The Falkland Islands Phenomena and Its
When the brief statement first appeared,
a few months age, that a town in the
Falkland islands had narrowly escaped de
struction by a flood of peat,thc story seem
ed incredible. Authentic details, however,
have lately reached England which leave
no doubt of the fact. The phenomenon is
believed te be unprecedented, and has
served te attract the attention of men of
science once mere te the archipelago of
treeless islands which Darwin explored half
a century age, and which constitute Great
Britain's southern colonial possessions.
The Falkland group is situated some 300
miles from the eastern coast of Seuth
America, opposite the entrance te the
Strait of Magellan. Twe of the islands,
known as the East and West Falkland,
are much larger than the test, and upon
the east side of the former is Stanley, the
chief town. There seems te be some in
fluence in the climate peculiarly favorable
te the production of peat, for. says Mr.
Darwin, " almost every kind of plant,
even the coarse grass which covers the
whole surface of the land, becomes con
verted into this substance ; scarcely any
situation checks its growth ; some of the
beds are as much as twelve feet thick, and
the lower part becomes se solid when diy
that it will hardly burn." Thus, it will
be understood, a peaty soil is characteris
tic of the whole country.
Just back of the town of Stanley, and
about ?,000 feet inland, rises a range of
heights which are surmounted by a pla
tea'., upon which rests a deep beg of peat.
Curiously enough, the thickest deposits of
peat in the Falklands occur en the hill
sides or hill tops. In ether places the peat
seldom exceeds a few feet in depth. The
subsoil is a dense yellow clay impenetrable
by water, and in the Stanley beg already
mentioned this is between twenty-four and
thirty feet below the surface.
On November 26, 1878, a southeasterly
storm of wind and rain set in at Stanley,
and the rainfall from that time until mid
night of the 30th is estimated te have been
two inches. Then the peat beg en the
heights above the settlement gave way.
"The black oozy mud," writes a naval
officer te the Royal geographical society,
"rolled down the hill with a momentum
which neither the iron stanchions around
the reservoir nor the barriers by the sea
could withstand. It broke through the
backs of wooden houses, inundated the
rooms, and obliged the inhabitants, rude
ly awakened from sleep, te flee for safety ;
a few pigs and calves were swallowed up
in the irresistible stream, but fortunately
no human lives were lest." The velocity
of the stream was net noted at first, but in
the morning, after its force was almost ex
pended, it was still moving into the sea at
the rate of about half a mile an hour.
Dr. Jehn Mulvany, staff surgeon in the
British navy, was an eye-witness of the
phenomenon, and attributes it te the action
of the heavy fall of rain upon the peat. He
estimates that ever 500,000 gallons of water
fell into the beg en the four days preceding
the avalanche. The impermeable yellow
clay underneath would net permit it te sink
through, and finally this enormous quan
tity of water, mingling with the peat, burst
the weakest side of the beg and rolled
down the seaward slope of the heights
above the town in the remarkable torrent
we have described.
The entire absence of trees in these
islands has been remarked by all visitors te
the Falklands. In this respect they offer
a striking contrast te Terra del Fucge,
which, though only 300 miles distant, is
clothed with forest. According te Mr.
Darwin, the largest bush in the Falklands
is scarcely as tall as the British gorse, the
best fuel being a little bush resembling
heath, which burns quite readily even
when green. Dr. Mulvany suggests that
the treeless character of the colony is due
te the heavy yellow clay already mentioned
