" Itcminiscenccw of Polit.'cs,' vvliich nic-hoou
to lie published. Hasting was a poor Albauj
boy, who joinisi the "liig rurty ami held
sonic offices. Ijjfo in life he bought The Com

vas rich he desired to own a iiewsiajuT iu
New York, and ho nud his friends ulTeral
Hastings .V0,0(I0 for Tho Advertin-r. ilr.
Uoey told him not to refuse, it Hastings ilid
ix-fusoit. About a jcarago hovvas thrown
from his can-ingo at Ixn Branch and rui
tured a l)!ool vessel of tho heart, which killed
him. His wife received about 350,000 for
Ihe pajicT, which probably xvas much nearer
it real valuo than the sum first offered.
Around Hr. Hoey'sown property he has
built thirteen of tho most extraordinary
houses in the Tuitwl States. I went through
omo of these with him and Mr. Hll
Ireth I have never seen such cottage3 in tho
world. Several cost 50,000 npiiw. Mr.
Ili'V himself deigned them, assisted only by
1 Gennnii cai-pentcr, who lias been with him
jixlecn years. They nro rntlier in tlie Queen
Anno stv le, but are iainted iu an extraordi
irj way, tho prevailing colors lieing jollow,

The largest of these houses goes by tho
nnnio of the president's house, and it lias been
siipis-isod that some day it might lieeome tho
summer residence of the president of tho
Tinted States. It is more than 100 feet long.

"I knew renlinand Ward well iu my lwy
1kk1," said a gentlemen who is pending soma
time in the city xisiting friends. 'He and I
were lxiys nnd schooliuate-s together in Gene
seo, K. V., where ho was born. His father
was pastor of tho old l'resbyterian church in
Genesoo. Ho is still living, although oM and
retired fimu ths ministry. It has lecn tho
tbhi!; that has amazed im more than an'
tlilffg civ to know how Fenlinand Wanl made
money. I have ls'ii unable to comprehend
it. At school he never applied himself to
study, but fooled nwav his time. Alsoiit tho
onlv thing he did well was to vvrito tlie other
boys' names 111 lsjoks in a Sencerian liand, an
aecomplishmciitofxihic.il lie was veryx'nin.
It is a fact that nil tho time he lived in Gen
msi he never did one honest day's work. Ho
sjs'iit nil his time with tho ladies, nud in
drinking nliout the two hotels when ho
censed going to school. If tho word lind lxou
nutieil tlftivn years ago he would have liecn
known as a dude. He wns simply nn exquisite
with nothing to Is exquisite on. Ho vvus ac
tually' xery ilelicicnt at tluvt time in tho ni
dimcnUs of nn ordinary English common
school education. He studhxl law for nvvhile
mill was disehnrged fixnn the ofllco liecanse
ho could not ss-ll well even with the brief lie
fore him to follow. His accomplishment was
imlislied manners. Ho xvas a dancer, dresser
nnd drinker, nnd xery extravagant, and al
ways running up bills for his parcnti. to pay.
Hovvas bright enough natural!, but never
upplied himself to study or work.
"Ho wiisiilsnit -1 years old when he left
Genesco and went to Indianapolis 111 a Kink.

buying tip meniliersliip tickets nnd sidling

to his brother: ' Gen. Jackson's manners are

Mr. Quincy was detailed by Governor Liu
coin, on whoso military staff he was, to at

visiting Boston in IS!.', and this narrator tes
tifies that, with eveiy piejudice against

personage prejudiced, narrow, mistaken ou
many points, it might be, but x igorously a

the natural, straightforward courtesies which
are easily distinguished from tho veneer of

stiff typo of niUitarystrcngthjh.! carried xv ith
him in tho streets a lienring of such dignity
that staid old Bostonians who had refused

would fiimlly bo coaxed into taking 0:10 jiecp,
and would then hurriedly bring forward
their little daughters to wave their handker
