THE JEALOUSY OF THE MARTYRED

(ovcrnable Rase Aroused by Trifles.
Xincoln's Bearing Through it All.
The account of Lincoln's lovomaking in
his history by Nicolay and Eay seems almost
ominous when read by the light of later
knowledge. The anxieties and forebodings
and absolute agony of tho future president
on th eve of marriage, the most incredulous
might say, presaged the destiny that im
pended. For no one knows the character of
Abraham Lincoln, his godliko jiatience, his
ineffable sweetness, his transcendent charity
amid all the tremendous worries of war and
revolution and public affairs, who is igno
rant of what ho endured of private woe, and
no one rightly judges tho unfortunate part
ner of his elevation and unwitting cause of
many of his miseries, who forgets that sho
had "eaten on tho insane root that takes the
Tha country knows but has preferred to
forget tho strangeness of Mrs. Lincoln's con
duct at intervals after her huslwnd's death.
Many of the mcrt extraordinary incidents in
her career were not revealed, out of dehcacy
to others and tenderness to one who had been
the sharer of Abraham Lincoln's fortunes
and tho mother of his family; but enough
was apparent to shock and pain tho public
sense whsa finally the conflict with her own
son, so mgiiry rcspecteu, tiie dragging u
their affaii-s into a public court, the neces
sary supervision of the poor lady's finances
and the restraint of her actions, if nolo' her
person, disclosed the fact that her mind had
Tho fii"st time that I saw Mrs. Lincoln was
when I accompanied Mrs. Grant to tho
"Whito House for her first visit there as tho
wife of the general -in-chief. The next that
I now recall was in March, 1804, when Mrs.
Lincoln, with tho president, visited City
Point. They went on a steamer, escorted
by a naval vessel of which Capt. John S.
Barne was in command, and remained for
some weeks in tho James river under tho
bluff on which the headquarters were estab
lished. Hero they slept and usually took
their meals, but sometimes both ascended the
hill and were entertained at tho mess of Gen.
Grant. On tho 2Gth of March a distin
guished party from Washington joined
them, among whom I remember especially
Mr. Geoffroi, tho French minister. It was
proposed that an excursion should be mado
to the front of tho Army of tho Potomac,
about ten or twelvo mles away, and Mrs.
Lincoln and Mrs. Grant were of tho com
pany. There was a military railroad which
took tho illustrious guests a great portion of
tho way, and then tho men were mounted,
but Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Lincoln went on
in an ambulance, as it was called a sort of
half open carriago with two seats besides
that for the driver. I was detailed to escort
them, and of courso sat on tho front scat
lacing the ladies, with my back to the horses.
In tho courso of com creation I mentioned
that all the wives of ofiiccrs at the army
front had been ordered to tho rear a sur
sign that active operations were in contem
plation I said not is, lidy had been allow ed
to remain except Mrs. GrifQn, tho wife of
Gen. Charles Grifiin, who had obtained a
hjwial icrinission from tho president. At
this Mi's. Lincoln was up in arms. "What
do you mean by that, sir.1" sho exclaimed.
"Do you mean to say that sho saw the pi evi
dent alone? Do 3'ou kow that I ue or allow
tho president to sco any woman alone''" Sho
was absolutely jealous of poor, ugly Abraham
Lincoln. I tried to pacify her and to palliate
my remark, but sho was fairly boiling over
with rage. "That's a very equivocal smile,
8ir," sho exclaimed. "Let mo out of this
carriago at once. I will ask tho president if
ho saw tliat woman alone." Mrs. Griffin
was ono of the best known and most elegant
women in "Washington, afterward tho Coun
tess F.sterhaz3', a Carroll and a personal ac
qu linlauco of Mrs. Grant, who strove to mol
lify tho excited spouse, but in vain. Mrs.
Lincoln again bado mo stop tho driver, and
when I hesitated to obey sho thrust her arms
past me to the front of tho carriago and held
tho driver fast. But Mrs Grant finally pre
vailed on her to wait till tho whole party
alighted, and then Gen. Meado camo up to
pay his respect? to the wifo of tho president.
I had intended to offer Mrs. Lincoln my arm
and endeavor to prevent a scene, but Meade,
of conn?, as my superior officer had the
right to escort her, and I had no chancs to
warn him. I saw them go off together, and
remained in fear and trembling for what
might occur in tho presence of tho foreign
minister and other important strangers.
But Gen. Meade w-as very adroit, and
when they returned Mrs. Lincoln looked at
mo and said: "Gen. Meado is a gentleman,
sir. He says it vras not tho president who
gavo Mrs. Griffin tho permit, but the secio
tary of war." Meado was the son of a diplo
matist and had evidently inherited somo of
his father's skill.
At night when we wero back in camp Mrs.
Grant tulkoil over the matter with mo and
said the w hole affair was so distressing and
mortifying that wo must never either men
tion it to any one; at least I was to bo ab
solutely sdent and sho would disclose it only
to the general. But tho next day I was re
leased from my pledgo, for "worso remained
Tho samo party went in tho morning to
visit the Army of the Jnmc on tho north
Bide of the river, commanded by Gen. Ord
Tho arrangements wero somewhat similar to
those tho day before. "Wo went up tho river
in a steamer, and then tho men again took
horses and Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Grant
went in an ambulance, I was detailed as
beforo to act as escort, but I asked for a
comitanion in tho duty; for after my experi
ence of tho previous day I did not wish to bo
the only officer in tho carriage. So Gen.
floraco Porter was ordered to join tho party.
Mrs. Ord was with her husband. As sho
was tho wifo of tho commander of an army
she was not subject to tho order for return,
though beroro that day was over sho wished
herself in Washington or anyvhero else aw ay
from tho army, I am sure. Sho was
mojntod, and as tho ambulance was full sho
remained on her horso and rodo for a while
by tho side of tho president and ahead of
"tiufi.es light as air."
As soon as Mrs. Lincoln discoverc 1 this her
rago was beyond all bounds. "What does
the woman mean," sho exclaimed, "by rid
ing by tho side of the president and ahead of
mo' Does she suppose that ho wants her by
tho side of him4" She was in a frenzy of
excitement, and language and action both
became moro extravagant every moment.
Mrs. Grant again endeavored to 'pacify her,
but then Mrs. Lincoln got angrv with Mrs.
Grant, and all that Porter aud I could do
was to see that notliiug worso than words
occuned. Wo feared die might jump out
of the vehicle and shout to the cavalcade.
Once she said to Mrs. Grant in her transports:
"I suppose you think you'll get to tho Whits
House yourself, don't you?" Mrs. Grant
was very calm and dignified, and merely re
plied that bhe was quite satisfied with her
present position: it was far greater than sho
had ever expected to attain. Then Mrs.
LincoTn exclaimed: "Oh! you had better
take it if you can get it. 'Tis very nice."
Then sho returned to Mrs. Ord. but Mrs.
Grant defended her friend at tho risk of
arousing greater vehemence.
Onco when there was a halt Maj. Seward,
a nephew of tho secretary of state and an
officer of Gen. Onl's stafT, rode up, and try
ins to sav somethins jocular, remarked:
Tne president's horse is very gallant, Mrs.
Lincoln; ho insists on riding by the side ot
Mrs. Ord!" This of course added fuel to the"
flame. "What do you mean by that, Eh:'"
she cried. Seward discovered that ho had
made a huge mistake, and his horso at once
developed a peculiarity that compelled bim to
ride behind to get out of tho way of tho
Finally tho party arrived at its destina
tion, and Mrs. Ord came up to the ambu
lance. Then Mrs. Lincoln positively insulted
her, called her vile names in the presence of
a crowd of officers and asked what she meant
by following up the president. The poor
woman burst into tears and inquired what
sho had done, but Mrs. Lincoln refused to bo
appeased, and tormed till she was tired.
Mrs. Grant still tried to stand by her friend,
and everybody was shocked and horrified.
But all things come to an end, and after
awhilo we returned to City Point.
That night the president and Mrs. Lincoln
entertained Gen. and Mrs. Grant and the
general's staff at dinner on tho steamer, and
before us all Mrs. Lincoln berated Gen. Ord
to tho president and urged that he should be
removed. Ho was unfit for his place, sho
said, to say nothing of his wife. Gen. Grant
sat next and defended his officer bravely.
Of courso Gen. Ord was not removed.
During all this visit similiar scenes were
occurring. Mrs. Lincoln repeatedly attacked
her husband in the presence of officers be
cause of these two ladies, and I never suffci ed
greater humiliation and pain on account of
one not a near personal friend than when I
saw the head of the state tho man who car
ried all the cares of tho nation at such a crisis
subjected to this inexpressible public mor
tification. He bore it as Christ might have
done, with an expression of pain and sadness
that cut one to tho heart, but with supreme
calmness and dignity. He called her ' 'moth
er," with his old time plainness; he pleaded
with eyes and, tones, and endeavored to ex
plain cr palliate tho offenses of others, till sho
turned on him like a tigress, and then he
walked away, hiding that noble, ugly faco
that we might not catch the full expression
of its misery.
THE MARTYR PRESIEENT'S COURTESY.
Gen. Sherman was a witness of some of
theee episodes and mentioned them in his
memoirs many years ago. Capt. Barnes, of
the navy, was a witness and a sufferer too.
Barnes had accompanied Mrs. Ord on her
unfortunao ride and refused afterward to say
that tho lady was to blame. Mrs. Lincoln
never forgavo him. A day or two afterward
he went to speak to tho president on somo
official matter when Mrs. Lincoln and sev
eral others were present. The president's
wife said something to him unusually offen
sive that all the company could hear. Lin
coln was silent, but after a moment ho went
up to tho young officer and taking him by
the arm led him into his own cabin, to show
him a map or a paper he said. Ho made no
remark, Barnes told me, upon what had oc
curred. He could not rebuke his wife, but
ht- showed his regret and regard for tho
rfficer with a touch of what seemed to me
the most exquisitebreeding.
After tho murder of tho president thr ec
centricities of Mrs. Lincoln became moro ap
parent than ever, and people began to won
der whether her mind had not been affected
by her terrible misfortune. Mr. Seward
told me that she sold tho president's shirts,
with his initials marked on them, beforo r ho
left the Whito House, and that, learning tho
linen was for sale at a shop in Pennsyh auia
avenue, he sent and bought it privately.
Sho lingered at the executive mansion a long
whilo after all arrangements should have
been made for her departure, keeping tho
in w president out of his proper residence.
Afterward sho mado appeals to public men
and to tho country for -wnsions and other
pecuniary aid, though there was no need for
public application. Sho went abroad doing
ttrange things and carrying tho honored
naino of Abraham Lincoln into strange and
sometimes unfit company, for sho was
gioatly neglected and felt tho neglect.
Whilo I was consul general at London 1
learned of her living in an obscuro quarter
and went to see her. Sho was toucl'ed by
the attention, and when I asked her to my
bouso for it seemed wrong that the wido .v
of tho man who had dono so much for us
nil should be ignoied by any American rep
resentative she wrote mo a noto of thanks,
betraying how raro such courtesies had be
come to her then.
The next I heard ot tho poor woman was
the scandal of tho courts in Chicago, w hen
the fact was mado clear that she was insane.
It was a great relief to mo to learn it. and
doubtless tho disclosure of tho secret nliich
her son must have long suspected though,
like the Spartan boy, ho cloaked his pain
was to him a sort of terriblo satisfaction. It
vindicated his conduct; it told for him what
ho had concealed: it proved him a worthy

Horse Trotting in Sweden.
Mr Gus Benedicks, one of tho directors
of the General Swedish Trotting association,
who is now in this country looking for infor
mation concerning American methods on tho
turf, gives a graphic account of tha "horso
world" in Sweden. Tho central office of the
association is at Stockholm. Tho president is
Count Alfred Pipen, and tho royal family
take great interest in tho races, which usually
are held in winter on tho ice. Tho circular
track of ono English milo is inclosed, and an
admission fee is charged. The crowds aro
always largo and enthusiastic, although
there L no public betting as there is in ilu's
country in fact, there is not a single active
bookmaker in all Sweden. Professional
trainers and drivers are scarce, and tho
speed of horses is not developed with skill.
It is the custom for each owner to drive him
self. The maximum rata of speed is 2:o() to
tho mile, and a horso capablo of doing this,
if sound and without fault, is valued at from
$,000 to 3,000.
The judges occupy a stand in tho center
of the infield, and tho horses, only two of
which start at ono time, travel in opposite
directions. Ono goes to tho right and tho
other to the left, and tho competitor v. hich
gets back to the starting lino first is declared
tho winner. Tho spectators in this stylo of
competition arc first interested in tho widen
ing of tho gap, and after the half mile pxrt
has been reached they grow excited over tho
steady closing of tho same. This method is a
great improvement in many respects over
tho American method, as it keeps the S'xc
tators in longer suspense, does away w ith all
chaneo of collisions and prevents tho horses
from getting excited and breaking. Then,
too, ono driver cannot form anywhere near
a correct idea as to the exact "speed of his
competitor, and is therefore compelled to
make his horso do its best. It is more diffi
cult, however, tc follow a raco of tin 5 de
scription than ono in which the horses travel
side by side and in the same direction. Tha
prises are mainly for Swedish bred hordes.

A War Is Needed.
My recent tour through Texas convinced
me that that itite is ripe and thirsting for
war. Almost every business man in Texas
is of the opinion that the state could span at
least t?l,(.XK) useless fellows, adventurers and
barper&, aud the easiest way would be to
have Ui- a I 'ed in war: so when that Mexi
can imbroglio came up they were elated over
the prospects of such an opportnnitv. and
were willing to drop mono.' into the hate
overy tramp that camo along to help to ex
cite the jieople. The y attribute the vast and
rapid growth of northern cities since the war
to tins riddance of unsavory material, and
expect that the time i not far distant when
they will be calks! upon to send some of those
bullet stoppers beyond the Mexican borders

EAGLES IN HDMA.
THE KING OF THE AIR DESCRIBED
BY AN UNFRIENDLY SCIENTIST.
The Most Cruel of All Feathered Bob
bers His Cowardly Attacks en Inoffen
sive Animal The Peed
"A great many persons," said Professor
Collett, "who are considered well informed,
seem to think there are no eagles in Indiana.
Tho truth is we have quite a number, a great
many more -than we need. It was that sen
sible old utilitarian, Benjamin Franklin, who
suggested the turkey as our national bird,
objecting to the proud eagle as unrepublican,
because he hail been appropriated as the em
blem of sovereignty by a number of mon
archical powers. The poet and the seer
have given their finest fancies and inspira
tions to honor this bird, which, after alL is
the most cruel of all feathered robbers.
Sometimes he is no daintier than the buz
zard, and will gorge himself with tho vilest
carrion. As to his cruelty, he takes special
delight in attacking some of the most harm
less and innocent animals. He will pick out
the eyes of lambs, apparently more as a tor
ture than for food. I have never heard of a
case in Indiana where man, woman or child
was attacked by an eagle. In my own
neighborhood, in Vermilion county, I have
known tin eagle to tear out the eyes of a
dozen lambs, frightening the ewes and keep
ing them at a distance by napping their
SOT COWAHDI.T, BUT WABY.
-"I never knew an eagle to attack an ani
mal that was capable of resistance. Not
that I mean to say he is cowardly, but he is
wary. The eagle, as commonly known, Ls a
solitary, melancholy bird. He is usually
seen alone in his flights, soaring at a great
height, because his eye is capable of measur
ing gi eat distances. Their nests are built of
coarso sticks or brush, not well put together,
on the top of an inaccessible rock or somo
tall monarch of the forest. It is commoidy
believed that the occupation of such a tree
for the nest of an eagle causes its death;
hence, in story and in pictures the eaglo nest
tree is al ways shown as a dead tree. It is not
true that the eagle's occupancy kills the tree,
but he chooses a dead or leafless tree for the
purposes of observation. Besides, the eggs
in the nest may have enemies not merely
animals, but birds, like jays and crows.
"I have little doubt that persons occasion
ally see eagles and mistake them for other
birds, the eagle being so rare. Perhaps,
however, many of our oldest inhabitants
have not seen more than one or two in a life
time. It seems that the eagle, like the wild
red man, requires a large hunting ground.
By a sort of arrangement a territory of five
or ten miles squaio is assigned to a pair of
eagles, though they do not sail in company.
They always keep the same territory and the
samo nesting place.
"Wo have in Indiana the bald and the
golden eagles, the former the moro common,
tho latter extremely rare. Frequently the
females and young males of silvered or bald
eagles are mistaken for the golden and other
species. All males of the bald family are
ornamented with a white crest after attain
ing tho age of 2 years. Beforo that ago they
cannot readily bo distinguished from the
females in their more somber plumage. For
many years I had seen but few eagles, so I
was surprised to learn that on an adjoining
farm to cry own in Vermilion county, In
diana, within two miles of my residence,
there was a bald eaglo assembly that it was
held there every night, and was the center
to which eagles camo from a distance of
more than fifty miles in all directions, for a
flight of fifty miles or more is nothing to
this mighty winged bird.
MEETING FOE COUNSEL.
"They camo in tho dusk of the evening,
and doubtless met for counsel and direction
moro than mere companionship. As the
birds camo in one after another there would
be shrieks of welcomo and noises very start
ling to the listener. This national congress,
as I call it. lias existed for a period that the
mind of man runneth not to the contrary.
Tho roosts aro on lotty, bare limbed syca
mores in a very solitary place. By actual
count these eagles numbered fifty-three, of
which twenty-four were males and tho re
mainder either females or males that hail
not reached the age of wearmg tho white
"Why don't eagles increase in number?
Well, o erybody who gets a chance to kill
an eaglo does so. Another reason is that
their nests aro so badly built as not to fur
nish security to eggs in case of storm, and
they aro thrown down and the eggs broken.
1 noticed in a '.aper that an eaglo had l e
cently been killed in Greene county, I
think it was that measured eleven feet four
inches from tip to tip. I had a wounded
eagle for a pet for some time. Ho had a
broken wing and could not fly. He would
hold a live chicken with ono set of claws and
tear it into shreds. Ho was turned loose in
a garden and fed regularly every day. Cats,
possums, and coons kept at a respectable
distance from the wounded king of tho air,
and it was unlucky for any strange dog to
get within his majesty's clutch. Ho never
could escape without leaving a slight testi
monial in tho way of hair or hido behind
him. Tho brilliancy of the eye of tho eaglo
when angry is wonderful. It is dazzling
and magnificent in its fury." Indianapolis
The Azorcan Peasantry.
With exports falling off and no manu
facturing interests to speak of tho condition
of tho Azorean peasantry is deplorable. To
add to theso evils most of the islands are
overpopulated and wages are extremely low,
unskilled labor at times commanding no
moro than 15 or 20 cents of our money per
day. Of course, the cost of living is very
little, or peoplo could not exist on these
wages; but it is only a bare existence that
the poorer classes obtain. Their food is of
the coarsest description, their clothing con
fined to a few garments of cheap material,
and their houses are almost bare of furni
ture. Many of these houses are unfloored,
and have not even a tabic or chair. The
women sit on rugs of native linen spread
flat on tho floor, and their children are al
lowed to run entirely naked or with one
loose garment reaching from tho shoulders
to the hips.
It is no wonder that, under the circum
stances, great numbers of the islanders emi
grate. Thousands have gone to the Sand
wich Islands and to America, where the
great majority settle in California, and
more aro going every year. The Portu
guese laws regulating emigration are very
strict, and no young man over 18 years of
ago is allowed to go away unless he has
served in the army, stood" a draft, or will
furnish bonds in $300 to come back and
serve if drafted. These laws are frequently
evaded, and the business of taking off "con
traband'' passengers by American whalers
and other vessels is as common as smuggling.
