TilK biography of tho late .Samuel
J. May is authority for tho statement
that the father of Jlr. May, who lived
ia Boston, ono day remarked to his
family: "As I passed tho old P.ranary
burial ground this morning, I saw that
tho tomb was open in which I know were
the remains ol James Otis, aud wi(h
tho licin of tho scxtou I opened tho lid
of tho coffin "and bohold, it was full of
tho fibrous roots of tho elm, especially
thick and matted about tho skull.
And going out, I looked up at (ho no
ble verdant Paddock elm, and thcro in
transfigured glory, was alhthat was ma
terial oi James Otis." Whereupon a
New Yorkpapcr romarks : "Aud now

paper expresses' isclf properly: Tho'

Otis ; that is all. To bo suro, to

iiiosc wuo lovoicnco uncut nuu iairioi
ism, it tnayt-eom that cremation in this
instance has taken a peculiar lortn ;
but a little reflection will dissipate- this
delusion, ami convince the thoughtful
that tho great statesman, having been
transfigured into an elm and cut down,
could not have been put to belter u.o
than ho litis been by being manufac
tured into stove wood !
lames Otis lived in a fiery period of
American history. JIo it was who, in
advance of tho other great orators of
the coloin'es, kindled llio liro of the
revolution. Of hot blood, be was as
honest as lie was inij cluous. Itathcr
than tti L'uo in iavor of the writs of as
sistance, he resigned his ollice of attorney-general
of the colony of Massachu
setts, and volunteered to oppose (hem.
His speech on tins subject was a rapid
summary of historical events and dntes,
rich in classical allusions, prophetic of
coming events, a eonllagralion of im
passioned eloquence. "Otis," sas
John Adams, .-peaking of this speech,
"was a llanio of liic, mid American in
dependence was then and there bom."
During years after (his, when lite
flames of rcvolutionarv lire were roar
ing on ovcry side,' Otis maintained his
reputation fur orv olonnem-o. :inI was
oallctl Ihu "great incendiary of Xew
Euelaud." lie was indeed a flame ol
fire; bis eloquence consumed his ad
llio birth, tho life, and the final dis
position ol the remains of James Otis
are all parts of one chapter. Wo may
imagino that at his birth the storm
wged and (ho lightnings were active ;
in manhood ho saw (ho raging of u great
political eonllagralion, and earned the
titles of "llame of lire" and "great in
cendiary." His death was in keeping
with his birth, life and character:
Standing in his door he was killed by
a stroke ol ligtilinng ; buried, lmbouy
pu( off its ineorruptioii, and throuuh
tho roots of an elm ascended from the
grave and became leaf aud baik and
wood. The man who sat under the
elm that grow over die L-ravc of (he
man whoso bones wcie buried beneath
his feet, littlo thought that the leaf that
loll into Ins band and the trunk he
loaned against were the remains ol
James Otis. When tho brcczo made
the leaves of the elm rustle, (he noise
was as musical as (he voieo of Otis in
his gentlest moods, and when the storm
made (he elm bend and groan and
shriek, while the fires of licaveu played
among its branches, he who looked at
il might have imagined it to be Otis
himself tho gi cat orator, whoso voice
thundered at the tyranny of Great
Jirilain, and who was called tho (lame
of lire. And why should not James
Otis, dead, turned tj clay and become
an elm, be cut down and bceomu indeed
a llame of fire !
