A MADMAN'S STORY.
BT T. H. S. ESCOTT.
Did 1 lore her? you ask. Better,
; yes, better, than my lifo? j Then why ?
'But stay; wait my story and you shall
- know all. Quietly, calmly, soberly,
I will tell you ail. You smile-you
think T cannot; you call me mad.
Nay, not so. But yon point to the
cell in which we are seated-to the
high walls beyond, which bar egress
-to the piteous -forms outside, bow?
ing in the agony of their impotence,
their hands to and fro. What of
that? what of all this which you e?e
ana tell me of? Do these things
frove me tobe a madman? Listen:;
say to-y?a, that in- tho huge city
yonder,-.Dejpond the precincts of this?
aooursec^prison-houeo, there wander
at large in the streets andj?6the
thoroughfare men and women mad?
der, ay, madder far, than anyi?npri
soned here. Is not ail their life one
vast expanse of madness? They
weave, and the robe thus woven is
one of laughter, derision, and scorn ;
they, spend all their lives in sowing,
. and yet they never reap. Fame,
name, w?alth-day after day, night
after night, they strive for these.
Ceaselessly, painfully, feverishly a
little heap of gilded chaff is got toge?
ther; then comes tho whirlwind of
sorrow and death, and sweeps it
poor fools-all sway. It is coming
all the time; they might know it
from afar off, and yet see it not, or
or seeing heed not. This-this is
madness-madness pre-ordained of
God, the worst and most fearful
there can be. Thinking, then, of this,
tell me not that I am mad. The
heart is the book of the German
sage; it will not lot itself be read.
But if I be not a madman, you
.want to know how came I to do what
1 have done? With soberness, calm?
ness, deliberation I did it. Hear me,
how quietly I speak to you; think
you, then, that I was a madman
when I acted?
Why I loved her I do not know;
by what slow stages I grew to find
that all my life, all my soul, was ab?
sorbed in hers, I cannot tell you. A
face beautiful and bright as that of
an angel, a heart pure and spotless
as a sonny summer sky, a voice
whoso every word was a note of
- music-these surely wore fit rea?
sons for love. And so gradually did
the spirit of love take whole posses?
sion of my brain and being. Yet,
from the first, believe me, I knew
well how it would all end. You may
' place no trust in presentiments;
neither do I in the presentiments of
all men alike. But there are some
I am assured of it-with whom to
feel ominously, in however vague a
manner, is to know. You cannot
apply one and the self-same rule to
the spiritual organization of all.
Your presentiments may end as they
arose, in vanity or nothingness; not
so mine. Throughout hie I have
been able to hear in the midst of
sounds of mirth and joy, of happiness
and laughter, the unerring foot-steps
of coming doom. With some men,
the senses have a power of which
those who have not felt it cannot
dream. In the deep darkness of tho
night, they can hoar the death-watch
ticking in distant walls-can hear tho
palpitation of some loved one's heart,
when she whom they loved is far re?
moved. With me it was not the
senses, but the mind-or shall I call
it the spirit? whioh attained this
morbid development. And so, oven
in those blessed hours of sun-set,
when my darling nestled closer,
closer still to me; when she talked,
with an assurance that nothing could
break, of future hours of sacred
peace; and when I responded to all
she said with words of equally con?
fiding and trustful love-I knew
quite well what the end must bo. It
was calm then, and happiness; but I
could descry the phantom shadow o'
disaster floating high above-soon to
I was wayward and wild. Her
father distrusted me; her friends in?
terposed words of bitterness and
calumny between us. Still she trust?
ed me-told me that nothing could
ever shako her trust. I smiled, and
said I knew she would be true; but I
smiled not because my knowledge
was hers, but because it was far moro
certain and far less bright. Poor
childi what was she to do? We were
parted, and then when strange
rumors reached her, magnified three?
fold by the lying speeches of her
enemies and mine, bit by bit the
rock of her confidence gave way.
Bravely she bore up, till at last it was
all gone. Her love, I think, never
left me; nor would her trust, had I
been near, and had she bat been able
to gaze, wrapped olose to my heart,
into my face and eyes, as in the old
by-gone timed. Bat long leagues
separated ns, and she fell away from
me. Tho venom of calumny had
done its work; the poison of false
I counsel had diffused itself through
, all ber being; and so oho ceased to bo
nine. I heard of her, bot I heard
of her aa being another's-or as soon
to be another's.. Yptr thia* too, I
know-by tho same unerring signs as
thoso I have already mentioned-was
destined .never to ooma to pass.
Why or how I knew this, I oould not
tell you then, nor can I tell you now.
It is enough that I had the know?
ledge, without being able to account
for the manner in whioh 1 had gain?
* At last, I heard that the day was
fixed on whioh she was to pass alto?
gether away from me. 1 They talked
of her soon as to become as rich and
great as she was beautiful; they talk?
ed of her aa future mistress of houses
and lands, of wealth incalculable.
Yes, in my presence did they talk of
all this-actually before mo-before
me, who knew that none of these
things would be. Often as I heard
them, I laughed to myself; often I
wondered how they could be so
blind. But I said nothing. I left
them to discover after the event that
what I had said to myself was true.
And so months and days rolled ou;
and at last it was tho day but oue
Before that whioh was to be ber
bridal. We were miles away from
each other; but something told me
that on tho night before the wedding
morn, I should see her. To that wed?
ding I had been invited; bat I said
ill health would not let me attend. I
waited to discover whither and how
I should bo led to her; for I felt
assured that nothing would prevent
I was right. On the early morning
of the next day, I departed to visit
her-for the last time. I had to
travel a long distance first-more
than 200 miles. Long watching and
sleepless nights caused me to slumber
in the train as I journeyed toward
her. And as I journeyed I dreamed
a dream. It was a simplo dream,
and easy to be remembered. Some
form-half angel, half devil-seemed
to descend before me, and display to
my eyes a cloth of pure white-white
os the driven snow-but dyed here
and there with crimson spots. I
woko with a start, and pondering
what I had seen, was at a loss to
know what it meant Fool, and slow
of understanding. But I knew after?
wards. The train stopped, and I
alighted at the station. It was tho
dusk of a glorious summer evening.
The air was heavy with perfume; but
for some reason or other, asl scented
the breeze, the very perfume terrified
me. I had some miles to walk bo
fore I could reach tho house in which
she was; and some little difficulty in
finding tho path, which was strange
to me; but I reached it at last, nearly
an hour before mid-night. It was
one of those old country which houses
aro now growing scarcer and scarcer
eveiy year in England-low, long
and rambling. Outside it was cover?
ed with jasmine and roses and ivy.
No lights were to bo seen down
stairs, save in that portion of the
mansion which I knew must bo allot?
ted to tho servants, who wore busied
about tho coming marriage festival
on the morrow. Bat in all the bed?
rooms tho lamps were yet burning.
Bound the house I wander stealthily
and silently-treading on the grass,
lest my feet should disturb the gravo!
and raise an alarm; keeping in the
shade of trees and shrubs, whence
I could observe everything around
without myself being seen. O, how
carefully I walked. At a sudden
turn, I was met by a dog, chained tc
his kennel, who bogan barking
furiously at me. But I was not
afraid; I crept cunningly around, gol
behind him, and theo, at a moment
when tho brute was not looking, I
stretched out my hand toward hit
throat, clutched it tight-so tight
and in a minute the only creature
that could havo disturbed me, wai
As I looked at his body lying still
quivering and panting upon thc
earth, there roso a strange feeling
within mo-a feeling that I cannol
and do not attempt to explain. ]
know afterward what it meaut, and ]
will tell you presently. O, it is i
glorious thing to feel that, morta
though one is, ono can hold in one's
hand tho keys of lifo and death-tc
know that ono has but to say to one
self the word and do the aced, nnc
then in a moment another life wil
have gone. It is this love of powei
that makes many a man a murderer
Still I continued groping my wo;
stealthily an I silently-so silentl]
and so stealthily-round tho house
I had beon thoro more than nu hou:
now, and except thu sorvants throng!
tho window, and a man, when tba
accursed dog began to bark at mo
1 thrust bis head forward from tho up
stairs apartment, and withdrew i
when I had stilled the brute's bark
ing forevor, I had not seen a trace o
a living soul. It was half an hou
after mid-night, and I knew that
should soon have to see my lost love
or not at all. Presently there wer
no lights in any of the bed-chambe
windows-none in any, save one
Something told me whose that on
was-it was my darling's. The win
dow itself was not twenty feet fror
tho ground, and, as you may ofte
see in such old-fashioned mansions
a flight of stone stairs led directly u
to it. Upon this, the window itsel
opened into a kind of balcony. An
now it was left ajar, in order thi
whatever breath of wind there hat
pened to be stirring might waft coo
ness ?nd refreshment over the face of
the deeper, in tho sultry July night.
F ?ore than an hour did I linger
b eath her window. I hold my
bi 'Mi quite closely, and I did not
mc " muscle or limb, so foar ful wa?
I that I might disturb her slumbers
O, so fearful! The window itself was
guarded by the gauziest of curtains,
but still my eyes could not penetrate
At last, I made np my mind to
ascend the stain?. I felt quite sure
that my darling was still asleep, and
I longed to look upon her features
once again-only juBt this once.
HoW noiselessly I crawled up them;
the serpent himself creeps along less
silently than I did then. Presently,
I reached I the top, and my breath
was hot against the glass of the win?
dow. Still I stood there, fearing to
move a step. Then I pushed back
first ono side of tho window, then the
other-O, so cautiously! for I dreaded
to wake the sleeper. Next I listened;
bnt all was quiet. "Quiet as death,"
I said to myself-"yes, as death;"
and as I repeated tho word, I started,
and my foot jarred against the win?
dow; and my ears could tell mo that
my darling, surprised by tho sound
in her sleep, had moved. I think I
must hnvo waited half au hour; but I
heard no further sound. So I pulled
aside the light gauzy curtain, uud
thrusting forward my bond, I could
see that my darling lay stretched out
before mo in a sweet deep sleep.
Cautiously-how cautiously-I ad?
vanced forward a step, to let my eyes
rest once moro on her dear loved
face. I was close beside her. I then
perceived that she must, in sheer
weariness of delight, have thrown
herself on tho couch directly after
BIIO had loft tho company of her
friends; for she still had on her a
robo of white muslin, and her golden
hair was still bound with tho blue
ribbon that she always loved. Yes,
she was just ns in the olden time.
Not a trace of difference had four
years wrought upon that lovely face
since I used to call it mine, minc! I
repented the word. Sbo was mine
no longer. But why should sho not
Still I gazed down upon her; and
still she remained wrapped iu slum?
I thought I heard a noise of some
one behind me. I looked, but there
was no one there. It was morely the
wind lightly rustling tho gauzy cur?
tains; butas I looked toward the win?
dow, I could descry in tho distant
horizon the first faint streaks which
speak of the coming dawn, and then
I know that my timo to linger thero
was short. Still I gazed down upon
her-upon that angel face, upon that
wealth of golden hair resting upon
tho most spotless of white robes.
Suddenly tho vision of tho morning
seemed to appear to me again. A
robe of pure white, dyed with crim?
son spots. What did it mean ? I had
not known before, but I knew then
White and crimson-rare colors
rich, beautiful! O, the contrast-the
crimson of passion and tho palor of
death! Still I gazed; and as I gazed
my life blood came and went-now at
fever, now at freezing point. My
whole frame trembled, for I had in?
terpreted the import of my vision.
My hand clutched in my pocket a
knife purchased long sinoe in a foreign
land, containing in it a dagger-blade
oponed by a secret spring. I drew it
forth, I touched the spring and tho
dagger was bare. A wild, mad kiss,
an uplifted hand and then the dagger
was plunged hilt-high in my darling's
bosom. The ruddy torrent gushed
forth, and my vision was accomplish?
ed. A shriek in the agony of death,
resounding through the low-vaulted
oorridors of the mansion, and tho
household rushed to the chamber. I
hud bolted the door; it was burst
open, and thero they saw my darling's
murdered form-the robo of white
stained with the crimson of blood.
But they saw not me. I hud moved
behind the window curtains. ?, so
cautiously; and I could seo from my
station all tho attendants, the father
and mother weeping and wailing for
her who, in a fow hours' time, was to
have been a bride. Last of all ho,
tho betrothed, came; and when ho
saw tho sight, he swooned in desola?
tion and agony of spirit. And seeing
him, and hearing his cry of woo from
whero I had so cautiously stationed
myself, thero carno from mo, by I
know not what impulse, a long, loud
scream of laughter, which betrayed
mo. But in death, though not in
lifo, I had made my darling mine.

The Democratic party, in National Con?
vention assembled, reposing its trust in
the intelligence, patriotism and discrimi?
nating justico of the people-standing
opon the Constitution ac the foundation
and limitation of the powers of the Go?
vernment, and tho guarantee of the liber?
ties of tho citizen, and recognizing tho
qnestionB of slavery and eecoasiou as
having been settled, for all time to come,
by the war, or the voluntary action of tho
Southern States, in Constitutional Con?
ventions assembled, and never to bo ro
newed or rc-agitatcd, do, with tho return
of poaco, demand:
1st. Immediato restoration of all the
States to their rights in tho Union, under
the Constitution, and of civil government
to the American people.
2d. Amnesty for all past political
offences, and tho regulation of the elective
frauchiso in the States by their citizens.
3d. Payment of tho public debt of tho
United States aa rapidly aa practicable;
all moneys drawn from tho people by tax?
ation, except so much as is requisite for
the nocossitios of tho Governmont, econo?
mically administered, being honestly ap?
plied to such payment; and, whore the
obligations of tho Government do not
expressly state upon their faco, or the
law uuder which they were issued does
not provide that they .shall he paid in
coin, they ought, in right and in justice,
bc paid in the lawful monev of thc United
4th. Equal taxation of ovcry species of
property, according to its real value, in?
cluding Government bonds and other pub?
5th. Ono currency for the Government
and tho people, tho* laborer and tho office?
holder, tho pensioner and thc soldier, thc
producer and the bond-holder.
(ith. Economy in tho administration oi
the Governmout; tho reduction of the
standing army and navy; the abolition of
the Freedmen's bureau, and all political
instrumentalities designed to secure
negro supremacy; simplification of tho
svstem and discontinuance of inquisitori?
al modes of assessing and collecting inter?
nal rovonuo, BO that thc burden of taxa?
tion may bo equalized and lessened, tho
credit ot the Government und the curren?
cy made good; tho repeal of all enact?
ments fur enrolling the State militia into
national forces in time of peace; and a
tariff for revenue upon foreign imports,
and such equal taxation, under tho inter?
nal revenue taws, as will afford incidental
protection to domestic manufactures, and
as will, without 'impairing tho revenue,
impose tho least burden upon and best
promote and encourage the great indus?
trial interests of the country.
7th. Iteform of abuses iu the administra?
tion, tho expulsion of corrupt men from
office, tho abrogation of useless oflicea,
tia; restoration of rightful authority to
and thc independence of tho executive
and judiciary departments of tho Govern?
ment, the subordination of tho military to
the civil power, to tho end that tho
usurpations of Congress and tho despot?
ism of the sword may cease.
8th. Equal rights and protection for
naturalized and native-born citizens, at
homo and abroad; tho assertion of Ameri?
can nationality which shall command tho
respect of foreign powers, and furnish an
example and encouragement to people
struggling for national integrity, consti?
tutional liberty and individual rights; and
the maintenance of tho right? of natural?
ized citizens against tho absoluto doctrino
of immuublo allegiance and the claims of
foreign powers to punish them for alleged
crimo committed beydud their jurisdic?
In demanding these measures and re?
forms, we arraign the radical party for its
disregard of right, and tho unparalleled
oppression and tyranny which have mark?
ed its career. After thc most solemn and
unanimous pledge of both Houses of Con?
gress to prosecute tho war exclusively for
the maintenance of tho Government and
the preservation of the Union, under the
Constitution, it has repeatedly violated
that most sacred pledgo, under which
alone was rallied that noblo volunteer
army, which carried our flag to victory.
Instead of restoring tho Union, it has,
so far as ia in its power, dissolved it, and
eubjectod ton States, in timea of profound
peaoo, to military despotism and negro
It has nullified thcro tho right of trial
by jury; it has abolished tho habeas cor?
pus, that moat sacred writ of liberty; it
has overthrown the freedom of speech and
tho pross; it has substituted arbitrary
seizures and arrests, and military trials
and secret star-chamber inquisitions for
tho constitutional tribunals; it has disre?
garded, in time of peace, tho right of the
people to ho free from searches and aciz
iirex; it has entered tho post and telegraph
offices, and oven tho private rooms of in?
dividuals, aud seized their private papers
and letters, without any specific ch argo or
notice of affidavit, as required by the or?
ganic law; it baa converted tho American
capitol into a baatilo; it has established a
aystom of spies and official espionage to
which no constitutional monarchy of Eu
ropo would now dare to resort; it haB abo?
lished tho right of appeal on important
constitutional questions to tho supremo
judicial tribunals, and threat.-ns to cur?
tail or destroy ita original jurisdiction,
which is irrevocably vested by tho Consti?
tution, while tho learned Chief Justice
has been aubjected to the moat atrocious
calumnies, merelv hecauso he would not
prostitute his high oifieo to tho support of
tho falso and partizan charges preferred
against the President. Its corruption and
oxtravaganco havo exceeded anything
known in history, and by its frauds and
monopolies it baa nearly doubled the bur?
den of the debt created by tho war. It has
?tripped tho President of his constitution?
al power of appointment even of bia own
Cabinet. Under its repeated aasaults, the
pillars of tho Government aro rocking on
their baso, and should it succeed in No?
vember next, and inaugurate its Tresidout,
wo will meet, aB a Bultjected and conquered
people, amid tho ruins of liberty and tho
scattered fragments of tho Constitution;
and wo do declare and resolve that, ever
since tho peoplo of tho United states
threw off all subjection to tho British
crown, the privilege and trust of suffrago
havo belonged to tho several StatCB, and
have beon granted, regulated and con?
trolled exclusively by tho political power
of each State respectively, and that any
attempt by Congress, on any pretext what?
ever, tn deprive any State of this right, or
to interfere with its exorcise, ia a flagrant
usurpation of powor which can find no
warrant in the Constitution; and, if sanc?
tioned by the peoplo, will subvert our form
of Government, and can only end in a
single centralized and consolidated Go?
vernment, in which the separate existenco
of the States will be entirely absorbed, and
an unqualified despotism be established
in placo of a Federal Union of co-equal
StatCB; and that we regard the reconetruc
tion Acts (so-called) of Congress as such
aro usurpations, and unconstitutional, re?
volutionary, ?od void; that our soldiers
and sailors, who carried tho flag of .our
country to victory against a most gallant
and determined foo, must over be grate?
fully remembered, and all the guarantees
given in their favor muBt be faithfully car?
ried into execution.

When grants of the public lands may be

Upon this platform, the Democratic
