when he was an old man, past seventy;

apartment. We have heard much of
W hitefield's piercing voice and Patrick
Henry's silvery. tones, but we cannot
believe that either of those natural- ora.
tore possessed an organ superior to
Clay's majestic bass. No one who ever
heard him speak will find it difficult to
believe what tradition reports, thathe
was the peerless star of the Richmond
Debating Society in 1795.
The following reminences of Mr.
Clay are from the pen of the Hon. Thos.
Ewill who wrote them as a contribu.
tion to a Sanitar# Fair : .
Mr. Clay, will all his terrible ower
of denunciation, was in ordinary debate
pleasant and playful. 'Vten dealiig
with an ordinary adversary he often re.
minted me of of the lines in Milton's do
scri lon of the Eden before the fall:
"Sportive the lien ramped and ibpaw
Dandled the kid."
On one occasion. the year I do not re.
member, but it was the 4ret time tLb
Whigs carried an election in the City of
New York, I found him early in his
seat with a newspaper in his hand. As
soon as the journal was read, he rose,
quite out of order-ansounced to the
President (Mr. Van Buren) the Whig
victory, spoke of their noble efforts in
the cause of their country, and of their
brilliant success. '.Your owh fellowv.
citizens, Mr. President-the proud capi.
tal of your noble State-hqq made its
voice heard in our halls, in,defqnqj.Q
k.'Pr*#id doesnot Wi warn your
pat&iotic heart "
*The impidenceq and absurdity-of this
eppeal w'as too much for the digniby of
a presiding officer. Mr. Van Buren's
face drew itself into I know not'how
many indescribable lines, in which' the
obmical predominated, and he slid down
in his seat until * nothing of him was
visible but the smooth top of his head.
He soon called some one to the chair,
came dowvu took a pinch of snuff with
Mr. Clay, and after a wholesale langh
between them the morAng business
His classical allusions (English class
ies) were few but sufficiently happy.
Hisattempts-to cite poetry generally
fAiled. On one occasiot hp attempted'

the same instant, in.suppressed voice,

double prompting- confused 'im; lhe

phasis. mnde the word "unhung." le
stood with a very pIdasant and une
barressed countenance, until the laugh,
which had become general, subsided,
and then, with a gentle shake of hs
head and a long drawing out of the fist

Tbe tve in the lotanda of the Capitel,
The iron stowe which stands in a cor,
ner of the iotunda of the Capitol of
Virginia is almost as familiar to visitors
*nd habitus as Houden's Washingtor
with its tasselless pane; and in cold
weather partitilarly, 'the venerable
stove is more an objeo of attractio1
than the marble coldness of the symmot,
rical statue. Of course, we believe
that everything that we bve hold, and
possess, is the finest, beat and tao4t p.
propriate, and it is hard fer us, with our
nineteenth century notions of progress
and refinement,to credit that those things
whrich we considor to be so old fashion
dd and incomplete were once esteemed
as master pieces of domestic art. The
hiloy"of the stove in the 'rotunda is
somewhat remarkable' and extremely in
teresting, an'd '..664 that it wa'med
the Halls of the louseof' Burgesses, at
Williamsburg,.for about oikty years be.
fore it was removed, bone -thirty years
ago, to be 'placed in the central hall
which it how holds. It bears the Brit.
isl4arms and other enbellianments in
relief, and in spite of the influence of a
republican soil and republican institu.
tions, the emblems of royalty are still
in a state of good preservation. The
"founder" of the stove, an Italian nam.
ed Busaglio, considered his work the
no plus uUrg of stove-making, and when
it was shipftd from -London he wrote
as follows to Lord Botetourt, then Gov.
ernor of Virginia, under date of Au
gust 15th, 1770 : -
The elegance of workmanship -does
honor'to Great Britain. It excels in
grandeur anything ever seen of the
kind, and is # master-piece not to be
equalled in all Europe. It has mnt

ing machine," as-Buzaglio calls it, which
has preserved his name to an admiriog
posterity, was presented to the Houso
of Burgesses by the *Duke of Beaufort.
It has surviv'ed three British monarchi
and has been cotemporadeols with four
kingly monarchies, two republics, and
two imperial governments of France.
The great Republic of America, "one
and indivisible," has been torn by inter.
necine strife, year after year of domestic
war has 'rolled slowly by, peace has
come home to us at last, and still the
stove of Buzaglio occupies its old iposi
tion in the Halle of Virginia's Capitol.
