Arriving at New Orleans, in 1852, I
was soon on my w'ny'iip the .Mississippi

were partly spent upon the hurricane-
deck of (he steamer, engaged in con
versation. Onoofthesu conversations
was so peculiar that he fixed itself iu
my memory ; nod subsequent events
proved itself worthy of record , al
though I confess I hciitato to jmt in
writing anything which borders ,sp
nearly on the marvelous.
One clear, starlight night, as we
glided along the elear river, our con

from the study of nautical astronomy,
practiced by nil naval officers, into the
realms of astrology. I rcjilicd that I
had always been interested more or less
in those inniheumtic.il studies, required
in nautical calculations , an J that Irom
the exact rules demanded for working
the various problems of the cphemeric,
I had sometime-", to amuse the idle
'lours ofn sca-lifc, worked out the na
tivities of iny shipmates. I bad even
taken .udkicl's almanac, and used his
rule, but without believing in the sci
ence ol judicial aitrolopy. Jackson,
however, was not so incredulous ; nl
thoughit was evident that he had not
then decided fully within himself as to
the truth or falsehood of this exploded
Before we parted at Pittsburg, a day
or two after this conversation, f had
givci .lack' on tiic necessary data for
calculating a horoscope , and, in the
eouren of a few months, 1 received
, from him a letter, which I preserved,
inclosing a scheme of nativity. As
any one who may have calculated
the.-e scheme? by the rules must know,
a horn-cope may he interpreted in vari
ous, even contradictory terms, by dif
ferent persons; and this was no excep
tion to the rule. The only rea.ou L
had for remembering it at all was, that
our destinies seemed to run in parallel
lines ; and, .-o far, it was remarkable.
It wan this peculiarity that caused
.Jackson to communicate with me, and
the ronton why I laid it carefully aide
for a re-examination.
The several planets were placed in
tceir respective houses above and be
low the horizon, and Saturn being near
the meridian, and . .approaching a
square with the moon, great danger
was to bo apprehended by the native
at the period when the aspect became
complete. Mars also bore a threaten
ing aspect, while Jupiter was below the
horizon, and heuii-sextile, which was
not altogether unfavorable. There
was no trine, and the sextile was weak.
Altogether from the evil a-pect of the
square of .Saturn, which threatened an
oppoitiou that most dreaded of all
tho evil aspects of the heavens the
scheme was not dangerous and malign,
Tho precise time and nature of the
threatened danger, requiring a second
calculation, accompanied tho Hchemo,
prognosticating the culmination of the
malign aspect within sonic teu yoars,
or during the first days of May, 18011,
at which time the nativo ran great risk
of life and fortunes, but, in case be sur
vived the peril, the ominous period
would never again recur.
In his letter Jackfeou say: "I
have gono over those calculations sev
eral times, as their result is almost on
exact reproduction of my owu.

A LIJvKNKSS OF DAVY CHOCK
ETT. There is to be seen nt tho rooms of
the Historical Society, Second aveuue,
corner of Eleventh street, an origiual
portrait of exceptional interest, a like
ness from life of tho colebrutcd Davy
Crockett or Kcutucky, painted by A.
L, DeHosc, and subsequently engraved
by A. ). Durand. It is in water color,
but is done with wouderful boldness
and spirit, and is one of those pictures
in which the beholder feels suro he
sees the faithful image of the person
represented. This is Davy Crockett,
ueyonu an perauventure ; cTery linea
ment is his, the whole man is before us
nnd for its accuracy of portraiture wj
do not ueed the autograph authentica
tion of it which the cartoon bears

Hut undoubtedly tho famous dis
tich and apothegm of Crockett in his
own handwriting gives a great addi
tional value to this powerful present
incut of tho man, nnd for a genuine
Auioricau iuterest wo know of no other
picturo extatit which is of greater value
than this. Tho thought interposes,
however, that it is not iu its right placo
in the New York Historical Society,
hospitable as .Mr. Mooro certainly is,
and houorablo custoJy as ho gives
to tho many treasures of tho Historical
Society Hutlding. Tho work, indeed,
docs not belong to the Society and is
only left iu its rooms temporarily.
The proper owner of this picturo is the
stato of Kentucky, and tho placo whore
it should bo kept is iu tho Capitol nt
Frankfort. Kentucky has a very ar
dent state piido (sho took it naturally
from her mother Virginia,) nnd does
herself credit in honoring her dis
tinguished sons, nnd Kentucky never

Davy Crockett. "Ho was a rough-hewn

MR. LINCOLN DECIDES
Tleforc reading the proclamation tho
president again said ho felt the great
responsibility of the step he was taking,
both to himself and tho country. It
had oppressed him, and not till all
other measures and expedients failed
had ho to come to the conclusion that this
element, which was arbitrarily used
against tt, must be brought into the
Union cause. Ifavinir reached that
conclusion, his decision was fixed and
unalterable. The act and all its re
sponsibilities were his alone. He had
prepared tho paper which he was again
about to read without advice or assis
tance had pondered over it ior weeks,
and been more confirmed in the recti
tude of the measure as time passed on.
Thcro had been moments when he felt
awed and overwhelmed by the gravity
and magnitude of the snbjcct and of
j what might follow, but his way was
i now clear lie knew ho was right,
i - .i .i i i . i
jiinoug oilier tilings, nc saiu, iu a euo
diied tone, he had looked to a Higher
rower for aid and direction. Ho bad
made a vow that if God gave us the
victory in the impending battle he
would receive it as an indication of the
Divine Will that it was his duty to go
lorwaru in the work ot emancipation.
In a manner half apologetic, he said
this might seem strange, but there
I were occasions when, uncertain how to
( proceed when it was not clear to his
initid what be should do he had in
this way submitted the disposal of a
subject to a Higher Power, and abided
by what seemed tho Supreme Will.
Events at Sharpsburg had confirmed
and strengthened his original purpose
iu regard to emancipation, and he had
no hesitation iu issuing this prelimin
ary order; the states interested would
deeide for themselves as to its consum
mation. This was not the only occasion when
he manifested the peculiar faith or
trait here exhibited. It was doubtless
to bo attributed in a great measure to
the absence of early religious cul
ture a want of educational advantages
in his youthful, frontier life. In the
wilderness of Indiana fifty years ago
there were fow churches, and only an
occasional wandering prcacl er fur
nished the sparse population with rude
religious instruction. Although his
early opportunities for religious im
provement had been few, there wns
deep-seated within htm a feeling of de
pendence and trust in that Supremo In

Glorious as the spectacle was, per
haps, however, it passed unheeded.
Those eyes were watching all for
another object, which now drew near.
In an open space behind the Constable
there was seen approaching "a white
chariot," drawn by two palfrics in
white damask which swept the ground;
a golden canopy borne abovo it making
music with silver bells; and in the
chariot sat the observed of all obser

Three short years have yet to pass,
and again on a summer morning,
Queen Anno Boleyn will leave the
Tower of London, not radient then
with beauty ou a gay errand of corona
tion, but a poor wandering ghost, on a
sad tragic errand, from which sho will
never more return, passing away out
of an earth where sho may stay no
longer, into a presence where, never
theless, we know that all is well for
all of us and therefore for her.
Dtit let us not cloud her short

future. Sho went on in her loveli
ness, the peerless following iu their

constructed, nnd a Helican fountain
upon it playing into a basin with four
jots of Rhenish wine. On the top of
the fountain sat Apollo with Callior.o
