John Quincy Adams wns minister to
tho Netherlnnds, under Washington, 1794
915; minister to Portugal, 179097;
minister to Prussia during tlio adminis
tration of his fathur, 1798 1803; sena
tor, 18031808, minister to Russia, un
der Madison, 1808-1813; commissioner
to Ghent, 1813-14; minister to England,
1815-17; secretary of state, uuder Mon
roe, 1817-24; president, 1824-29; and
member of congiess from 1834 to 1847,
tho dato of his death. Thus, in a period
of 53 years, tho intervals between tho lay
ing down of the office and tho assumption
of another, amount, when added together,
to less than two years.
Tho ofiicial career of Gen. Lewis Onss,
has been oven longer than that of Mr.
Adams. Commencing as a member of
tho first Stato legislatures of Ohio, in 1803
ho has been in high public position ever
bince, a period ol oo years.
Within that timo ho has been governor
ot a teintory, Indian bupeiintendont,
Secretary of war, minister to Franco,
United States Senator for twelve years,
carfriidato for President, and Secretory of
btnte. When ho leaves tho Secretary ef
Stato's department, in 1801, ho will com
plete a selvico of about sixty years in' the
high ofhceBVof tho government. Ho is
Indeed, tho patriaich of our statesmen,
so far as length of ofiicial sei vico is con
cerned. Martin Van Huron, whilo ho hns not
been in ofiico so loner as soino of our
statesman is the only ono who has filled
the four highest, most dignified and now-
ei fill positions under tho American con
stitution, llo has been minister to liiiig-
land, Secretary of State, Vico President
and President. His public life commenc
ed in 1808, as surrognlo of Columbia
county, New York, which ho left for tho
State Senate, and then as Attoiney Gen-
oral of tho State, United States Senator,
Governor, minister to England, Secreta
ry of State, Vico Piesident and Piosident.
Ho was constantly before tho people ns an
important personage down to his retire
ment from tho l're.sidoncy in 1841, a per
iod of thirty-tlireo years. Perhaps wo
ought not to say that his public career
then closed, for he was a prominent can
didate for President bufmo tho Baltimore
Convention in 1844, and ho run as tho
freesoil candidate for President in 1848.
Henry Clay's public career commenced
in 1807, as a member of tho Senate of tho
United States, and concluded as a mem
ber ot tho same body in 1852, an interval
of 45 years.
Ho was United States Senator, mem
ber qfthe House, speaker of that body for
twelvo years a longer period than any
other man ever served in that capacity
minister to Ghent as ono of tho commis
sioners to conclude tho peace with Great
Britain in 1814, and Secretary of Stato
from 1825 to 1829.
Thomas H. Benton served a longer
timo in Congress than any other of our
public men. Ho entered tho United States
Sonato when Missouri was ndmitted in
1821, and continued theio until 1851, a
poriod of thirty years. Ho never held
any other office.
John (J. (Jalhoun entered tho House of
Representatives in 1811; served there un
til 1817. when he bocamo Secretary of
war under Mr. Monroe. In 1824 ho was
elected Vico President, nnd re-elected in
1828. In 1831 he resigned tho stntion of
Vico President to bocomo a United States
Senator from South Carolina. Tho rea
son of this extraordinary step was that ho
might champion tho cause of nullification
in the Senato, nnd roply to the argument
of Mr. Wobstor on that subject, which
wero producing nn extraordinary effect on
the country, llo continued in the Senato
until 1844, when ho becamo Socretary of
btato under John Tylor. In 1845 ho re
entered tho Sonato, and was a mombcr of
it in 1850, when he died.
Daniel Webster came to tho House of
Representatives in 1811 from Now Hamp
shire. In 1820 he 'was elected from Bus-
ton, Mass., to which city he had removed.
In 1823 ho was elected to tho United
States Senato. In 1841 was Secretary
of State. In 1845 he was again a Sena
tor. In 1850 he again took charge of tho
department of stato, and filled that posi
tion at the time of his death. His polit
ical career lasted about thirty-six years.

Statesmen. The Angel on Earth---A Touching
to mo, papa's cross to
night," said a young mother as slio ex
tended her arms affectionately to a little
girl of thrco years, who had loft her toys
and playthings to climb upon her father's
knee. Tho child hazarded a puzzled look at
that dark, stern countenance and without
a glance of roassuranco, stolo softly to
his side. Not n word was spoken, and
the gloomy man sot sad and sullen, his
mind wholly absorbod with tho busy
world's excitements. Although" n hus
band and a father, ho was evidently in no
humor to participate in tho pleasures of a
"homo circle." Tho child, not at all
discouraged by tho forbidding look ofher
parent, crept gently upon his knees, and
placing one tiny arm about his neck, tho
other glided all'octionately over tho oppo
site cheek, whilo her innocent lips picsced
gently tho troubled brow. Inn subdued
breath slio whispored: "Xcllie loves papa'
so much!" and sho diew her little bolt
hands caressingly down cither side of that
care-worn face, until they met beneath
the havily bearded chin. Observo tho ef
fect; 'twas electiical; tho stei n features i
(laxed, tho sullen gloom disappeared, and
tuu wtiolo countenance assumed a lively,
Animated explosion. The sceno was
most touching. Words fail to exnress
the exquisite beauty of such a' picture.
As tlio transloinied parent drew the llttlo
girl to his bosotn, nnd pressed a kiss upon
that innocent, upturned face, tho finer
feelings of his manly natulo were in his
voice as ho said, "No, my child, pa could
never bo cross with such n lovely daugh
ter to calm the heart tlio world has tortur
ed into despair."

be compromised, (strange advice for a
lawyor); the lady was still in his office,
and ho suggested an interview. Tho re

horses of tho Imperial Guard were inter

On tho summit of a ridge,

"There, bo good."
"What did you do that for?" I asked.
"To moke 'em lay," she answered.
I'Mako 'ora lay; will that doit?" I en

I confessed that I had not. In an hour
wont out again, aud picking up the
hens, sure enough, somo had laid, those
she let go, and they ran off, not even cack

which seemed disposed to be contrary, bho
struck on the back Buying: "You'd bet

Now Jako had always practiced tbe

c'lSftcluded to save timo by going down

Boys. At tho recent examination of can
didates for ndmis-inn into the Naval Ac
ademy nt Anapoli3, a promising little
fellow, only 15 years of age bore off the
palm. The lad was from Texas, aud had
been for three vears Ketting typo in n
newspnper office, during which time he
had mado himself proficient in Mathemat
ics by reading of nights in his little garret.
By the light of his tallow dip he had, at
an early age, mastered Arithmetic, Algo
bra and Geometry, besides being well read
in general literature. Ho Has clad iu the
poorest clothes and traveled to Auapolis
like a German hand worker, paying ex
penses by a few days work in different
newspaper offices upon the route. If not
admitted he expected to work hi way
home tignin in the samo manner. Brnvc
little fellow, ho deserves some day to be
President. If life nnd health is' given
him we shall have to record further of this
interesting youth. Columbus ( Go.) Sun.
