THE BATTLE OF SEMPACH.
Nothing in history has been more remark
able than the union of the cantons and cities
of the little republic of Switzerland. Of
differing races, languages, and latterly, ev
en religions, unlike in habits, tastes, opin
ions, and costumes, they have, however,
been held together, as it were, by pressure
from without, and one spirit of patriotism
has kept the little mountain republic com
plete for fire hundred years.
Originally the lands were fiefs of the Ho
ly Roman Empire, . the city municipalities
owning the Emperor for their lord; and the
great family of Hapeburg, in whom the Ein-pi-e'
became at length hereditary, was in re
ality Swiss, tbe county that gave them title
lying In the canton of Aurgau. Rodolf of
Hapeburg was elected leader of the burghers
of Zurich; lbsg before he was chosen to the
Empire; and he confined a Swiss in heart,
retaining his mountaineer's open simplicity
and honesty to tbe end of his life. Privil
eges were gi anted by lain to the cities and
tbe nobles, and the country was loyal and
prosperous in his reign.
- His son Albert, the same who has slain by
his nephew ' Johann, as before mentioned,
pel mi t ted those tyrannies of bis bailiffs
which goaded the Swiss to their celebrated
revolt, and commenced tho long series of
wars withihe House of Hapsburg; or, as it
was now termed,' of -Austria; which finally
established their Independence.
'. On the one side, - the Dukes of Austria
and their ponderous German chivalry, want
ed to reduce .the cantons and cUie to vas
salage, not to U e Imperial Crown, a distant
and scarcely felt obligation. but to the Duchy
of Austria; on the "other, the hardy moun
tain peasants, and stout burghers well knew
their true position, and were aware that to
admit the' Austrian usurpation would expose
tholf young men to be drawn upon for the
rhike's." wan. cause -'their property to be
subject to perpetual rapacions exactions, and
fill their hills with castles for ducal bailiffs,
who would be little better than licensed rob
bers. No wonder, then, that the generation
of William Tell and Arnold Mclchthal be
oueathed a resolute purpose of resistance to
It was in 1397, ninety years since the first
assertion of Swiss independence, when Leo
pold Handsome, Duke of Austria, a bold but
misproud and violent prince, involved him
self in one of the constant quarrels with the
Swiss that were always arising on account
of the insulting exactions of toll and tribute
in the Austrian lordcr cities. A sharp war
broke out, and the Swiss city of Lucerne
took the opportunity of destroying the Aus
trian castle of Rotheinburg, where the tolls
had been particularly vexatious, and of ad
mitting to their league the cities of Sempach
Leopold and all the neighboring nobles
united then forces. ' Ilivtred and contempt
of the Swiss, as low-born and presumptuous
spurred them on; and twenty messengers
reached the Duke in one day, with promis
es of support, In his march against Sempach
and Lucerne. He bad seat a huge force in
the direction of Zurich with Johann Bonstetton,
and advanced himself with 4,000
horse and 1,40) foot upon Sempach. Zu
rich undertook its own defence, and the
Forest Cantons sent their brave peasants to
the support of Lucerne and Sempach, but
only to the number of 1,300, who, on the
9 th of Julr. took post in the woods around
the little lake of Sempach. Meanwhile,
Leopold's troops rode round the walls of the
little city.insulting the inhabitants; one hold
ing up a halter, which he said was for the
chief magistrate; and another, pointing to
the reckless waste that his comrades were
perpetrating on the fields, shouted, "Send
breakfast to the reapers.'' The burgomas
ter pointed to the woods where his allies lay
hid and answered, "iiy masters of Lucerne
and their friends will bring it."
The story of that day was told by one
tbe burghers who" fought in the ranks
Lucerne, a shoemaker, named Albert Tchu
di, who was both a brave warrior and .
master-singer, and as bis ballad was trans-"
laled by another master-singer, Sir Walter
Scott, and Is tbe spirited record of an eye
witness, we will auote from bim some
his descriptions of the battle and its golden
The. Duke's, wiser friends proposed to wait
till he could be joined by Bonstetten and
troons who had cone towards Zurich,
the Baron von Haseuberg (u e. hare-rock)
strongly urged this prudent counsel; but
" 'O Hare-Castle, thou heart of hare !' .
Fierce Oxcnstitjrn he cried, .
'Shalt see then how the game will fare,'
The taunted knight replied."
This very noon," said the younger
knicht to the Duke, ."we will deliver lip
you this handful of villains.
"And thus they to eacn other said,
Yon handful down to hew
Will be no boastful tale to tell,
The peasants are so few.
Characteristically enough, the doughty
cobbler describes how the first execution
that took place was the lopping off the long
peaked toes of the boots that the gentlemen
wore chained to their knees, and which wo'd
have impeded them on foot; since it had
been decided that the horses were too much
tired to be serviceable in the action.
"There was lacing then of helmets bright,
And closing ranks amain,
Tbe peaks they hewed from their boot points
Might wellnigh load a wain."
They were drawn up in a solid compact
both,' presenting an unbroken line of spears
projecting beyond the wall of gay shields
and KilUhed Impenetrable armor.
Tuft Swiss were not only few in number,
l ut Hu.r was scarce among them; some
had only boards fastened on their arms by
way of shields, some bad halbcrts, which
had been used by their fathers at tbe battle
of Morgarten, others two-handed swords
and battle axes. They drew themselves up
in form of a wedge, and
"The gallant Swiss confederates then
They prayed to God aloud,
And He displayed His rainbow fair,
Against a swarthy cloud."
Then they rushed upon the serried spears,
but in vain. "The game was nothing
The banner of Lucerne was in the utmost
danger, the Lantlamman was slain, and six
ty of his men, and not an Austrian had been
wounded. The flanks of the Austrian host
began to advance so as to enclose the Email
peasant force, and Involve it in irremediable
destruction. A moment of dismay and still
ness ensued. Then Arnold von Wlnkelried
of unterwalden, with an eagle glance saw
the only means of saving his country, and,
withthe decision of a man who dares by
dyiug to do all things, shouted aloud: "I
will open a passage. '
" 'I have a virtuous wife at home,
A wife and infant son: .

He rushed against the Austrian-band
In desperate career,
And with bis body, breast and hand,
Bore down each hostile spear;
Four lances splintered on his crest,
Six shivered in bis' side,
Still on the serried files he pressed.
He broke their ranks and died !"
The very weight of the desperate charge
of this self -devoted man opened a breach in
the line of spears. In rushed the Swiss
wedge, and the weight of the nobles' armor
and length of their spears was only encumb
ering. They began to fall before the Swiss
blows, and Duke Leopold was urged to fly.
"I had rather die honotably than live with
dishonor," he said. He saw his standard
bearer struck to the ground, and seizing his
banner from his hand, waved it over his
head, aud threw himself among the thickest
of the foe. His corpse was found amid a
heap of slain, and no less than 2,000 of bis
companions perished with him, of whom a
third are said to have been counts, barons,

GEORGE H. PENDLETON.
His Public Career.
[From the Cincinnati Enquirer.]
George H. Pendleton is a native of
Cincinnati, and was bora in 1825, and
is, consequently, in the forty-second
year of his age. Ilia grandfather.
Nathaniel Pendleton, was a native of
New York, and was the intimate per
sonal and political friends of Alexan
der Hamilton, and was his second ia
the duel in which he lost his life.with
Aaron Burr, in 1804. He was a revo
lutionary officer, being aid-de-camp
to General Greene in his glorious
compaign in the South. He was the
first Federal district judge in Georgia,
and was appointed by President
The father of George H. Pendleton
was Nathaniel Greene Pendleton.who
defeated Dr. Duncan for Congress in
Hamilton county, in the celebrated
contest of 1840. He was a leading &
eminent Whig in politics. Descended
from such ancestry, with his relations
and acquaintances all on the anti-
Deuiocratic side in politics, it would
not have been surprising if George
had imbibed the same views and po
litical tenets. But he was one who
thoucht for himself who was gov
erned by no extraneous influence, and
from mature conviction and study ho
early embraced the Democratic creed,
and cast his first vote with that or
ganization. In this he evinced the
aarae resolute independence nd in
dividuality that has since, on all im
portant occasions, governed his con
He entered Woodward College in
Cincinnati, and afterward studied at
two universities in Germany. He
then commenced the studj- of law in
Cincinnati, and upon his admission
to the bar, formed a parlDerhip with
Hon. George E. Pugh, since United
States Senator from Ohio.
In 1853, Mr. Pendleton commenced
his political career by ati'epting the
Democratic norrfination for the State
Senate from Hamilton county. The
nomination was made by the popular
vote of the party, and he ol taiued
within one hundred and filty votes of
the total number cast. The whole
Democratic ticket upon which he was
placed was elected by about ten thou
sand majority. Although the youn
gest member of that body, and en
tirely new to its service, htonce
took a prominent position in its delib
erations, and well sustained the high
anticipations whicli had been formed
by those who had been instrumental
in his election. So favorable was the
impression produced, that while yet
in the Senate, he was nominated as a
candidate for the House of Kepresen
tatives of the United States, from the
First District of Hamilton county.
This was th greater honor, in view
of the high character of the men, who
for a long series of years, had been its
Representatives. In the list were
such men as General Findlav. Gener
al Robert T. Lytie, Bellamy Istorer,
Dr; Alexander Duncan, Nathaniel G.
Pendleton, James J. Faran, and D. T.
Disney. The issue of the election
was unfortunate. The Know NothiDg
tornado swept over the country with
irresistible force ; and although Mr.
Pendleton run ahoad of his ticket.he,
as well as the other Democrats, were
In 1856, at the next Congressional
election, Mr. Pendleton was unaui
mously selected to bear again the
standard, and this time was.eiected
by a flattering vote, over popular and
worthy competitors. He took his seat

disasters that were to come.
Mr. Pendleton's course was soon
taken. It was moderate and highly
conservative, having this object stea
dily In view the preservation of the
Union by maintaining amity between
the States. To those extremists
whether trom the North or the South
whose policy was continual agita
tion, that was menacing to the Na'
tional peace, he opposed a firm and
inflexible opposition. He was placed
upon one of the most important com
mittees of the House, that of Military
Affairs, and was soon known as an ac
tixe und working member
In 1858 he was nominated for a
third time to Congress, Hia compet
itor this year was T. U. Eay, Esq.,
who, in 1854, had deleated him by a
majority of thousands. The contest
was very sharp, and an enormous
vote was uolled. The general result
was unfortunate to the Democracy
Every candidate on the ticket but
one, was defeated. The exception
was Mr. Pendleton, who was elected
by some three hundred and fifty ma
In I860 occurred the Presidential
election, and the break up of tbe
Democratic party at the Charleston
Convention. There were three Dem
ocratic and Conservative candidates
for President, viz: Stephen A. Doug'
las, John C. Brecken ridge and John
Bell. This unfortunate breach open
ed the way for a Lepublican triumph
with Mr. Lincoln. Mr. Pendleton
warmly sustained Mr. Douglas, and
was renominated by that wing of the
party for re-election to Congress. Hia

his third term the civil war between
the North and the South, growing
out of the secession of the latter from
the Union, occurred. It would be
occupying too much space in a brief
biographical notice to discuss the po
sitions assumed by Mr. P. in this un
happy national convulsion. Suffice it
to say, they were those entertained
by the great mass of his political
friends, who believed that the war
ought to and could have been avoided
by Mr. Lincoln's administration, and
that, being wrongly commenced, it
would lead to no good result. While
such were his views, he at the same
time announced his willingness to
vote for all appropriations that might
be necessary to maintain the national
honor, and prevent disaster to the

and in 1S62 there seemed to be little
hope that the party would again be
able to elect Mr. Pendleton. He was
nominated, however, unanimously,
with the most enthusiastic acclama
tions. This was his fifth nomination,
an unusual number for an Ohio dis
trict to give, where the doctrine of
rotation has so loDg prevailed. His
competitor was Colonel John Groes

issue, and upon it the Democracy
went Into the fight in the country.
To the astonishment of th6 Republi
cans they were beaten, aDd Mr. Pen
dleton was returned for the fourth
time to his seat by a majority of one
thousand and three hundred. The
Democracy also carried the other
Congressional District, electing Mr.
Alexander Long to Congress, with
the Democratic county ticket.
After the election, and when it was
thought the Democrats would have a
majority in the House of Rcpresenta
lives. JMr. .fenaietoirs name was-
prominently spoken of for Speaker of
the Hou.-e of Rt-pretenta fives. The
Republicans, however.prewrved their
ascendency, and iio serious contest
could be made in his behalf. He was
appointed by the Speaker elect, Mr.
Colfax, upon the committee of Ways
and Means, the leading one of the
House, and to which it is usual io as

and with the Executive branch of the
Government. He had previously
been on the Judiciaryjcommittee.from
which he had been transferred from
the Military Affairs serving, there

the three leading committees in tbe
In 1864 the period again arrived for
the Presidential election. The De-
nocraey cast their eyes about in search
of a suitable and available candidate.
In the Northwest there was a strong
feeling that Mr. Pendleton was that
man. He had been the intimate per
sonal friend of Stephen A. Douglas,
and upon the latter's decease they be
lieved no one was left more worthy
to wear his mantle and be his succes
sor in the affections of the party. A
large rumber of his friends repaired
to Chicago,where the Convention was
held, to urge his selection." It was
soon found, however, that the pre
vailing sentiment was for a military
man, who had a record in the war
that was then progressing. General
Georsre B. McClellan was selected as
the candidate for President on the
first ballot. Mr. Penaleton's friends
then pressed his name for Vice Preti
dent, and he was selected over able
and strong competitors on tho second
ballot, receiving the two-thirds vote
required. Mr. Pendleton was a dele
gate in the Convention, having been
complimented in such a selection by
the Democracy of the State, who had
chosen him as one of the delegates at
laree. Uron beine- called out, he

..gptgrj the nomination in a graceful
speech, acknowledging in modest and
becoming terms the high honor he
had received. The issue of the elec
tion was disastrous. Military tyranny
and official fraud and corruption pre
vailed. Three States alone gave their
votes for McClellan, viz : Delaware,
New Jersey and Kentucky. The
contest, however, in some of the large
States such as New York and Penn
sylvania was very close, a change
of fifty thousand votes would have
elected McClellan and Pendleton
On the 4th of March, 1865, Mr,
Pendleton's fourth term of service in
the National House expired. He had
long been regarded by both his politi
cal friends and opponents as tbe lead'
ing man of his party In the House,
and his retirement waa the cause of
general regret. On the last day of
the session an incident occurred which
showed how great was his popularity,
and how highly he was appreciated
by his fellow members.; A special
hour was, by unanimous consent, as
signed him to make a speech In favor
of a measure he had introduced, viz;
to give to Cabinet officers seats upon
the floor of the House, where they
might reply to such Interrogatories
should be addressed to them touching
the affairs of tht Gevernment in their
departments. Every moment was
precious. Some of the great appro
priation ' bills had not passed ; but
such was the respect felt for him. and
so great was the desire to hear him,
that, by unanimous consent, he made
a closing argument in favor of his ex
cellent proposition. A more magma
cent compliment was never tendered
In 1866 the Democratic State Cen
tral Committee of Ohio selected Mr.
P. as a delegate to the Philadelphia
Convention. He did not, however,
attnd that body, but sent his dcli
nation to the committee, who appoint
ted a substitute In his place.
The time lor another Congressional
election had again rolled around. Mr.
P.'s friends, in view of the immense
importance of the next Congress, and
under the belief that he was the stron
gest man they could elect,pressed him
to accept another nomination for the
place, in which he had achieved such
renown. He consented, although ,
aware that the odds were strongly
against his success. At the Congress
ional election in 1S64. when he ran for
Vice President, the Democratic can
didate was beaten two thousand five
hundred yotes by the Republican
nominee, Benjamin Eggleston. To
overcome this majority was a hercu
lean task; but Mr P. set himself about
it with the greatest vigor and energy.
He canvassed all the townships and
wards, but the lavish use of money

Such has been briefly recalled
the political career of Mr. Pendleton,
which has been, in the main, a signal
success. It has been so because he
possesses superior mental and moral
attainments. Endowed by nature
with a strong and vigorous intellect,
has been assiduously improved by
cultivation and study, and by scholas
tic and educational polish. It is re
markably well balanced ; and there
are few menho have less weakness
and frailty, and whose minds are
more completely developed. Ever
calm and self-possessed, he is seldom
betrayed into excitement, and always
acts under the dominion ot reason.

he is always courteous to opponents :

His speeches and public addresses
have been marked by logical strength
by historical research, by great con

superior mental qualities we add a
social nature, a genial disposition and
fine personal address, it is not to be
wondered at that he has troops of
friends, who take pride in his past
career, who regard him as one of the
most promising ot the statesman
now in public life, and who look tor-

Young Lady in New Philadelphia
A Young Lady in New Philadelphia Commit Suicide—Some of the Supposed
Reasons for the Act—Other
The whole populatioh of New Phil
adelphia, Tuscarawas county, was in
expressibly shocked to learn of the
sudden death by poison, Saturday
morning last, of a young lady be
longing to a well-krown respectable
tamily of the town. Subsequent in
vestigation revealed the fact that the
poison was administered by her own
nana. 11 is reported, indeed, that
two doses were taken the first, beine
an over-dose, acted only as an emetic,
out me second produced death in
about an hour.
Of course there were a thousand ru
mors as the cause of the melancholy
affair. Very few, however, were in
possession of the facts, which we give
on good authority, as follows : Some
time since a young man named Ever
ett, living in New Philadelphia, en
gaged to marry the deceased girl, but
her parents objected on account of
Everett's character. The match was
broken off, and Everett married an
other woman. He seems to have still
retained a fondness for his first Jiance
and continued his occasional visits to
her for some time, and until it be
came a matter of remark. Nothing
criminal was suspected, however, up
to last Friday night, when, to the as
tonishment even of her own friends,
the girl was delivered of a child. So
carefully had she concealed her condi-

ware or it. it has since been ascer
tained that she had made prepara
tions to leave the place before the ex
pected time of the birth, and these
plans may owe their lauure to pre-
mature labor. It is also aserted that
she had madehersblt acquainted with-:
poisons, as a last resort in case she
was discovered. All these precautions
having failed, and the dreadful ex
posure having come, the poor girl was
overwhelmed with grief and shame
too great to bear, and so ended h er
ruined lite. Everett has left the place
gone no one kuows where.
The former standing of the parties
and their good connections, have made
the whole affair one of intense inter
est in New Philadelphia and vicinity.
In Akron, a little son of Geo. H.
Bien, two and a half years of age.
swallowed a number of garden beans,
producing a severe straugulation for
a few minutes, bat which, however,
was speedily relieved by the child
vomiting freely and throwing up sev
eral of the beans. About half past
one in tho afternoon, while being ca
ressed by his mother, he strangled a
gain, dying almost Instantly. A post
mortem examination showed that one
of the beans entered the windpipe,
which being so lodged for the time
being as to produce no serious obsta
cle to respiration, became displaced
by a sudden inspiration of the breath
completely closing the air passage,
and, of course, producing death.

A Wonderful Skull—Singular Medical Fact.
Twenty years ago, in Cavendish,
Vermont, a man named Sage, twenty
five years of age, possessing an Iron
frame, met witli a singular, accident,
tho particulars of which., we collect
lrom a paper read by Dr. Harlow a
few days since, befor the Massachu
setts Medical Society. Sage was ram
ming a hole that had been charged
with powder. The iron struck fire
from the rock, and the iron he was
rammingwith was driven up through
his cheek, out of the top of his head,
high in the air, and was afterwards
found, smeared with blood and brains.
The tamping iron wa3 3i feet in length
and 13- inches thick, and pointed at
one end, the taper being seven inches
long, and the diameter of the point a
quarter of an inch. It weighed thir
teen pounds. The point was upward
and the iron smooth. The missile en
tered, by its pointed end, the left 6ide
of the face, immediately anterior to
the angle of the lower jaw, and past
ing obliquely upward and slightly
backwards, emerged out of the top of
the head in the median hue, at the
baak pnrt of the frontal bone, near
the coronal suture. The ordinary
reader vill understand it better, if we
say that, pointing upward it entered
the cheek outside the teeth, and un
der the cheek bone, went inside an
inch behind the eye, nod out of the
top of the head iu the . centre, two
inches back of the lino where the

mintites the man was taken three
quarters of a mileiu a sitting position
in a cart. The opening in the brain
wa two inches wide by three and a
half inches long. In fifty-nino days
the patient was abroad. .The effect of
the injury was the destruction of . the
equilibrium between his aniniet aud
intellectual faculties. . The man lived
until JS01, when Dr. .Harlpii" secured

recognizing his old barber, "are you selling

"But tills Is no business for a man like
you," said Burger.
"O, sir, If you could only tell me of some
thing better to do!" returned tlie barber,

Burger was touched. He reflected a mo

and handed it to the man, saying, "Take
this to a printing-olHce, and have a hundred

for it. Get a license from the Prefecture of

and you will have bread on the spot. The
