fifty-fourth year of his agn, although
h'rs face looks ten years younger. The
grandfather. John Gordon, who was ol
Scotch-Irish origin, settled at an early
day in Northumberland county. The
father of Isaac G., whose name was
Zaccheus, settled at Lewisburg some
years before the birth of our candidate,
and for many years followed in tlmt
! Place uis ,rade of eopperstnitbing. At
a later dato he came to llrookvillc,
where he died m 1872, in the 83d year
of his age.
During childhood our hero b4 such
educational advantages as tin country
then afforded, which, it is well known,
were not first-clas. His father, from
sickuefs and misfoitune, was very poor,
aud Ike, as he was familiarly called,
when only sixteen years old, found it
necessary to support, by the labor of
his hands, the whole family, consisting
of his father, mother, three sisters or d
a brother. This heavy charge and re.
spnnsibility, nnder which a more timid
youth would have given way, had no
difficulties which could not be sur-
mounted for young Gordon. The path
of uU,J s ue understood it, was plain
belre him, and though hardships bad
t0 be endurod, struggles made, and
great self-denial practiced, ho was found
equal to the task. Kutcring Nathan
Mitchell's iron foundry, in Lewisburg,
as a wane-cleaner, he afterwards letrued
the trade of moulder, at which busi.
ncss he worked some seven or eight
years, part of the time in Danvilln, then

without crutches, aud long before his

that stern necessity which knows no

place in the foundry. During these

ideas. bile being one of them, then,
in fullest sympathy with the great army
who earu their bread by the sweat of
their brow, it is not strange that he im
bibed those principles of protection to

national liberty which have since formed
the principal features of his political
creed. That he still retains his fond,
ness hr mcchauic arts, aud is still re
garded among the workingmen of lirook

subjects in which they take an iuterest.

"Down in the parish of St. Martin, an old

improvements one day for $2,000, and re
ceived the money on the spot, iu her own
house, where the act of sale was passed be
fore two witnesses, the number required by
law, and who also witnessed the paying of
the money. In a short time she was to
give possession, but she remained in the
house the nilit following the sale, all alone,
or with no masculine adult inmates, as was
her custom. That night two negro bur
glars broke into lhe bouse and demanded
her money or ber life. She gave it to them,
but begged them to let her have one hun
dred dollars, as she owed that amount, and
wanted to wy the debt, when she would
be satisfied. They finally consented to let
her keep the one hundred dollars. They
then ordered her to make some coffee for
them to drink. In doing so she bethought
herself of some strychnine she bad in the
house, and quietly dropped it mto the pot
of steaming coffee, 'and placed it on the
table, witb cups, spoons and sugar for them
to pour out and sweeten to their taste.
This they did, and drank in a jolly mood,

A VY'lXALB BllKAKS A.N El.ECTlttC CABLE.
The Iudian cable between Kurrachee
aud Gwadur, a distance ot three hundred
miles suddenly failed. The tcli graph
steamer. Amber Witch, started on the fol
lowing day to repair the damage, which,
by tests, appeared to ono hundred and
eighteen miles from Kurrachee. The Am
ber Witch arrived on the ground, in a
heavy sen and thick fog, but the cable was
successfully grappled within a quarter of a
mile ot tbe fault.
Mr. II. Izaal Walton gives this account
of what was found : " On winding in tbe
cable unusual resistance was experienced,
as if it were foul of rocks ; but after per
severing for some time the body of an im
mense whale entangled in the cable, was
brought to the surface, when it was found
to be firmly secured by two and a half
turns of the cable immediately above tbe
tail. Sharks and other fish bad partially
eaten the body, which was rapidly decom
posing, tbe jaws falling away on reaching
the surface. The tail, which measured 12
feet across, was perfect, and covered with
barnacles at the extremities. Apparently
the whale was, at the time of tbe entangle
ment using tbe cable to free itself from
parasites, such as barnacles, which annoy
them very much, and tbe cable banging in
a loop over a submarine precipice, he prob
ably with a Sip of his tail twisted it around
him, and thus came lo an untimely end."
