Not long since I had occasion to visit one
of our court'), mil while conversing with a
legal friend, 1 luard the name of John An
derson called.
"There is a hard case," remarked my
friend.
I looked upon the man In tho prisoner's

to the crime of thett. - He was a man

bloated and bloodshot ; Ins hair luatteri with
dirt, and his bowed loriii quivered with de
lirimn. Ceitainly I never saw a more piti
able object. Surely thai, man was not born
a villain. I moved my place. He siw my
movement and turned his head. He gazeil
UMin me a single mutant, and then, cover
ing his face with his hands, ho sunk power
less in his rant. "Good God!" I involun
tarily cjaoulated, starting forward, "Will

wlieu he quickly raised his head und cast
uponiuo u iotk of such imploring agony that
my tongue was tied at once. Then ho cov
ered his face ugnin. I asked my legal com
panion if the prisoner had ooinml. He said
no. I then told him to do all in his powor
for the poor fellow's benefit, and I would
not remain to see him triod. Tears ctme in
his eyes as I gazed upon him, and it was
not until I gained the street end walked
some distance thut I could breathe freely.
John Anderson I Alas I he was ashamed
to lie known as his mother's own son. That
was not bis real Dame; but vu ihall know
! him by no other. . I will call him by the
name thut stands upou the record ot the
ooort.
John Anderson was my schoolmate, and
it waa not niuiiy years ago not over twentv
that we left our academy together ; ho to
return to the home of wealthy parents I
to sot uown lor a lew years in mo dingy
sanctum of a newsiuiDerotficc. and then wan
der nf auross the ocean. I was gone foiiio
lour years, and when returned I found
John a married man. His father was dead,
and lett his only son a princely fortune.
"Ah, C ," he said to me, as he met
me at a railway station, "you ahall ace what
a bird 1 huve oaged. My f.llen is a lark, a
robin, a very princess of all birds that ever
looked beautiful or sang sweetly."
He waa enthusiastic, but not mistaken,
for I found his wif'o all he hud said, simply
omitting the poetry. Me was one ol the
most beautiful women I ever saw. And so
good, too, so loving and so kind. Aye,
she so loved John that i-he really loved all
his mends, w bat a luckv woman to hnd
such A husband I for John Anderson was as
handsome aa she tall, straight, manly,
high browed, with chestnut curls, and his
face as faultlessly noble and beautiful us ar
tist ever copied. And he was good, too, and
kind, generous and true.
I si rent a week with them, and 1 was happy
all the while. John's mother lived with
thfliu as fine old ludy as ever breathed,
and waking lierselt a constant joy try doting
oil her "darling boy " as the ii-wiij-s called
him. 1 -gave nor an account ot myu lveu

In the evening I reached the house. .He
was, not, in, i but, hjs wife, and niothor were
there to receive tne, and two curly headed
boys were at nhiv upon Ellen's chair. 1 knew
at oiice they were my friend's children.
Everything seemed pleasant nntil thn little

hide it, but a face so used to tho sunshine

Oh. said ho with a kuirh. "that waa
nothing but a little wine partv. We had
agloriout tituo. I wish you hnd been there."
At first I thought I would aay no more J
but was it not my duty? I knew hi nature
better than he knew hiimclf. Him appe
tite and pleasure bounded hit vision. I
knew how kind und genorouH he waa alai I
too kind, too generous.
"John, could you have acen Ellen's face

you make her unhappy Y"
He stopped me with
"Don't he foul. Why should she be
unhappy?" .
"Because he fearg Jo w e5ln down
hill," I told hiiu. '
Did she aay so? he asked, with a flush
ed fnce.
"No, I read it io her looks," I said.
"l'eiliapi a rufluotion of your own
thoughts, he HUggo.-ited.
"burely 1 thought so when you came
home," I replied.
Never can I forget the look ho gave mo
then,, so full of reproof, of surprise, of pain.
" . I foririve vou. for I know vnu to
be a friend; but never xpeak tome like that
I going down hill I You know better. That
can never be. 1 know my wants. My
mother knows me bettor than Ellen does."
Ah, hud the mother bcon as wise as she
was loving, she would have seen that the
"wild outs' which her son wns sowing would
grow up and ripen, to furnish only seeds tor
re-sowing. But she loved hi m loved him
almost too well, or, I should say, too blindly-
But I could say no more. I only prayed
that God would guard him, and then we con
versed on other subjects. I could spend
bt a day with him, but we promised to cor
respond often. .
lhree years passed, during which John
An.lers.iD wrote to mo at least once a month,
and oftener sometimes j but at the end of
that time his letters ceased coming, and I re
ceived no mtiro for two years.when airain I
found myself in his native town. It was
early in the afternoon when I arrived und
took dinner at the hotel,
I hi anishod iuy tncnl and was lounging
front ol tho hotel, whon I saw u funeral
procession winding into a distant church
yard. 1 asked tho landlord whose funeral
it wan.
' Mrs. Anderson," he said : aahesnokel
noticed a slight drooping of the bead, as if
it cut mm io Miy so.
"What I John Anderson's wife ?" I ven
tured. "No," ho said, "it is his mothor," and
s he told me this he turned away. But a
gentlemen near by, who had overheard our
conversation, at once took up tho theme.

"Did you know Johu Anderson,?" he iu
quintd. ' He was my schoolmate in boyhood, and
my bosom friend in youth," I tol 1 him.
He then led me to one side, and spoke as
follows:
"Poor John 1 He was the prido of the
town six years ago. This man opened his
hotel at this time, and sought custom by
giving wine suppers. John was present at
many of them the gayest of the gay, and
the most generous ol tho party. In tact, hu
paid for nearly allot' them. Then he com
menced to go down hill, and has continued
in the downward path ever since. At times,
true friends have prevailed on him to stop,
but his stops were of short duration. A
short season of sunshine would gleam upon
his home, and then the night cutua more
dark and dreary than U tore.
"He said he never would gut drunk again.

friend I That gluss of wine was but the gate

worth sixty thousand dollars. Yesterday
ho borrowed the sum of five dollars to pay

mother bore up as long as she could. She!

lope this may reform him.
But his wile?" I asked.
'Her heavenly love has held her up this
fur. but she is only the shadow of the wife
she was six years ago," he returned.'
My informant was deeply afteotud, and so
was l; consequently! asked no more.
During the remainder .of the afternoon I
debated with myself whether to cull upon
Johnatull. But finally I resolved to go.

they were ohunged, sadly, painfully so.
Thoy were glud to see me, and my hand
was shaken warmly.
"Dear C , don't say a word of the
past," John urged, shaking my hand the
second time. "I know you spoke the truth

I saw my legal friend on the day follow
ing the trial. He said John Anderson was
in prison. I hastened to "see him. The
turnkey conducted mo to the cell ; the key
turned in tho large lock on the ponderous
door, with a sharp creak, swung upon its
hinges, and I saw a dead body suspended bv
the neck finm a 'grating in the window. I
looked at the horrible face : I could ace
nothing of John Anderson there ; bat the
fuco I had seen in the court-room was suf
ficient to connect tho two, and I knew that
this was all that remained of him I loved
so well.
And this wns the last of the demon's
work, and the last act of tho terrible drama.

The following is the late letter from Col.
Forney to the Piladelphia Press:
Excepting Jesse D. Bright and John P.
Halo, Cltarfes Sunnier, of Massachusetts,
although still a young man has served a
longer period in tho I'lii&d States Senate
than any other member now sitting in that
body. No Senator has ever been so bitterly
abused, and so industriously misrepresented.
According to the tactics of tho South, by
which the hest men havo been blackened,
and the worst men made angels, Charles
Sumner was for a long time offoctually
damned, equally in the Free and in the Slave
States. I shall novcr forget my sensations
when, in tho spring of 1S56, I was standing
at the railroad stution in Lancaster, Pa., on
the eve of slartmg westward, to help forward
the fortunes of James Buchanan. A .tele
graph from Washington was handed to me,
announcing he assault, in the Senate Cham-
Ibcr, of Preston S. Brooks of'Sonrh Cariga,
ifnon CliaiTe8"SifiiTner." hP rfassacliuseftsT
Nor can 1 forgot tho sentiment that broke
from my lips on that occasion "This oiit
rago will lose James Buchanan five North
ern State, should he be nominated for Pres
ident." For I ha.l read and seen the South
ern aristocracy in its worst phases in the city
of Washington. Minority as this aristocracy
wns, its in.ottiule maw could never be grati
fied. The repeal of tho Missouri Compro
mise, so preirimit ol'evil, gave it no real sat
isfaction. Tho concessions of t lie free States
wuro accepted as so many tributes to a be
sotted despotism. When An Irew II. Read
er, appointed Governor ol Kansas by Frank
lin Pierce, attempted to give practical ex
pression to his Free State feelings, thourli
lie had served in tho Democratic party for
yours before, as one of the ohampions of the
Southern School, he wns hunted like' a
criminal, aim almost insulted by such inm
im H. Cobb and L. M. Keitt. At that day
S. A. Douglas was the idol of the Southern
iiiistocracy, because he had consented to the
repeal of tha Missouri -Ciinrrrirmiw, "letrd
James Buchanan, was doalited and denoun
ced, bccait-e was was snpposed to occupy
an equivocal position on tne same question
In ihe spiingol'l85ritheniissionof the Dem-
oeratic purty was unquestionably to maintain
position in tho Union by a magnanimous
concession to tho free Srute sentiment, knd
Buchanan was wrung from tho Cincinnati
Convention precisely as a victim might be
snatohed from the laws of a dovonrins lion.
The enormity of his subsequent treachery
may be measured and understood when Ire
reflect that the gallant Douglas would, have
been defeated in 1S56, because of hisi asp-
osed devotion to the South, and that James
iuchunan was only elected because of his
supposed, devotion to the North. - 'j

Zollicoffer's Funeral.
The Nashville-Bowling-Green-Lonurrnie
Courier of the 3d says :
Tho last honors were paid to all that was

citizens of Noshvillo yesterday. His body

was at once conveyed to the Capitol build

noon, during which time it was visited by
lame numbers of people. Notwithstanding
the rainv and exceedingly disagreeable
weather, immense numbers of the citizens
ot Nashville and the surrounding country
assembled at tho Capitol yesterday after
noon, where the funeral exercises were con
ducted by Bishop Otey, in the solemn and
beautiful form belonging to the Epirwpa
Church. Despite the ruin, the procession
ot uu itarv and citizens that followed tl
remains to the grave was one ot the largest

Important Appointment.
Dispatches received frrn Washington
yesterdjy. annourv? that the appointment
of Gen. Kthan A. Hitchcock", to be a Mijor
General, was fent to the Senate bv the Pres
ident at the opening of that body ; that it
was referred to the Military Committee, re-,
ported back, and confirmed before the ad
journment. It is said that the Cameraman, some of
whom are yet to be found s round Washing
ton, made strenuous opposition to hia ap
jvointmcnt, bnt the conntrv may rejoice that
it waa uaavaUtag- Gn. Hituliaaek hesbeei -trained
to military lite from his youth up,
and is, beyond all question, one of the most
accomplished and high-minded officers in tha
country. We do not know thst such is the
intention, but we are impressed with th
belief that he will at onco be assigned to the
command of the army now operating on th
Tennosee and Cumberland rivers, and that
the best understanding will exist between
him an-) Major-Gem-ral Hueil and Major-
General Halieck. He will, of course, be
subordinate to Gen. Halieck. but the desire
of each will bo so ardent to bring tho war to
a srredyand successful conclusion, that their
whole efforts will he directed to this cbject
alone. Next to the removal of C imoroo,
and the selection of S:ontnn for Secretary
of War, we regard this as thfl most impor
tant act of the President to give efficiency to
the service.
Gen. Hitchcock is now in this city, end
