on the' stage when Booth, jumped from the
box after bhootlnx the Presldeat, He also
took care of his horse, and brought turf let- j

hours preceding the assassin friioa ; the ev-t
idence against Spangler was clrcumstaa'

A New Tract Society Wanted. What We Were and What We
The following article,' which, we clip
from the Fort Wayne Democrat, ought to
be read and well pondered by every one
who has a vote to cast, or a good thought
or word to bestow upon the welfare of his
country. Let all read and compare the
past with the present. . .
In the good old davs of Democratic rule,
when peace and prosperity smiled all over
the land, a distinguished traveler visited
the United States to .view the workings of
our form of government ai administered
by Democratic statesmen, from that purity
of motive which aad no. other desire than
to be just and impartial. This visitor was
a great scholar, an explorer, a philosopher
-Alexander Yon Humboldt On return
ing to Europe "he Bali, -"The Government
of the Unwed States is the best in the
world, yon can- neither see it nor feel iW
Were it necessary-- to produce proof that
this man possessed great intellectual power,
this terse - and unequal ed seatene would
alone be conclusive evidenced From the
adoption of the ConsUlnlioa -of-1787 to
1881, this incomparable description of our
Government was true to the letter. ' V -.
You do not feel it, for no -oppressive
taxation visited you, your land was not
filled with tax gatherers, and a stamp act
did not wrench from you the last pittance
left In your pocket.:
Yon could not see it, for no bayonets
bristled in times of 'peace to' aisturb the
peppw and deprive them or their rights.
States In this "glorious Union" ware not
held in subjection by military despots, and
the despicable carpet bagger . was a .thing
unheard of."1 rfegro supremacy in a part
of tha Union was not the- pet scheme of
the American' Congress, but that body, m
the good old days of the Republic, was the
suDject of praise all ever the world, lis
action was .then dictated by patriotism,
and the love for the Union was its guiding
star.. . .!- -
How is it now?- Verily, you can both
feel and seethe Government feel and see
It to your sorrow. ' Yob can feel it in the
enormous taxes you have to pay ; in the

A HALF-TOLD STORY.
How Andy Johnson Turned the
Tables on Gus. Henry.
I read . In your' paper of a recent
date an article credited to the Knox-
ville, (Tenn.) Preis and Herald, giv
lner a graphic account of ' a political
discussion between Andrew Johnson
and G. A Henry, at Mempis, where
these distinguished statesmen were
opposing candidates for Governor of
the volunteer btate, ana stating the
happy manner la which the "Eagle
Orator" "got . Andy'.' by claiming
that the eagle was a proud bird and
would ( not "feed on carrion.". 1 re
member the discussion very well, lor
there was another incident connected
with it which can not be forgotten.
I was a supporter of Mr, Henry, and
then thought, witn. tne uoerty mas
ses,, that Andy. Johnson was the
quintessence of baseness. Bat to the
discussion at Memphis. The Frets
and Herald has only told ' half . the
story, a give you the; other half,
which will plainly show how Andy
"arot" the "iiagie Orator;." ,
I believe it was the late lamented
and brilliant Wml T. Haskell him
self tha ".noblest Roman of them all"
Hhat pointed out to the Whig can-,
uiu&Hj in i no Ajonaresinonai utujoc. a
vote ol Johnson's against a bill mak
ing an . appropriation to send, sup
plies to the starving people of Ireland
during one of the years of famine in
that oppressed country. There were
many Irishmen lu the audience, and
their sympathies were naturally with
Johnson, as the representative of the
.Democratic party, uut Jienrya el
oquence, as he pictured the starving
mothers, sisters, and "innocent babes
at the breast," in their native land,
ana nuriea anathemas at Johnson
for the heartlessuess of the vote he
had given in Congress, ref uslnjr to
send a crumb of bread, even to - in
duce tne immortal spirit to remain
In its tenement of clay, left Andy for
the moment without an Irish mend
In the audience. . . ' '. . ...
Finally, it came Andy's time to
speak. He did so, and at once took
up the question or Irish relief. He
acknowledged that he had acted as
charged, and boldly declared that he
wouia give the same vote then if he
was In Coneress and the Question
was before that body. He did not
believe that Congress had the Con
stitutional right to appropriate .the
puDiic money in cuariuea. lie was
strict constructionist, and could
find no authority to make any such
disposition of public funds. These
funds were collected for a specific
purpose the payment of the actual
expenses of the Government and he
wouia nave been untrue to his om
cial oath if he had voted to make any
Other disposition ' of them. There
fore, he could not, . conscientiously,
vote for the appropriation in ques
tion, and he was not mean . enough
tododge. '. ;.' I ; . ,'
Of course, 1 do not pretend to
quote his language, but simply indi-.
cate the line of argument by ; which
lie aeienuea his unpopular vote.
But the clincher was yet .to come.
After exhausting his defense of that
vote, he defiantly proclaimed in sub
stance:, "Yes, fellow-citizens, I did
vote as charged. I would do it again.
simply discharged an unDleasant
duty in so doing. But it was a duty.
I had no more right to put my hands
in the public treasury and take out
money ior this purpose than 1. had
to put them into your pocket' and
take it out for a like purpose, .-xet
I sympathized deeply with the fam
ished people, r My heart bled for
them. . And as a proof of .my. sym
pathy, although you know ma. to be
a poor man, I here state that Andy
Johnson put tna hands into his own
pockets and contributed, out .of his
own money, five hundred dollars.
How much aid you give, Mr.- Hen
ry, with your two plantations and
Hundreds of negroes ? ; Not a cent.''
This completely turned the tables
on Henry, and at once not only re
stored Johnson to his original posi
tion Vi the affections of the Irish, but
increased it ten-fold. . Many of the
Whirs were somewhat incredulo us.
and wickedly suggested that Andy
lied arout the rive hundred dollars,
but ttey knew that he would proba
bly knock any speaker do wu that
Dubliclv aiauuted his word. -
