WhatHifi "Common Sense" Did
for This Country.
(From KarpiT. Hoalne )
A lining Hie Centennial evrnti there In one
that idioiiM not lio forgolten. yet Mill not
gladly ho remcinliervd, hci'iu'c li is no.
rlatkil Willi a name which 1 at generally
dhla'Dlul a any In our hltory. In the
winter ol a hundred yean go wan ul
lUhcd the fnmoila pamphlet Common Heme,
winch cryatall.ed into tlxed purport the
wl.ben and hopea lor Indepeiidenei! which
tilled tho colonial mind. The author wee
ThoiniH l'alne a very i-onnplcuou 'RgBTe
In thli time, but Ktnerally known to tn an
Tom l'alne, the inlldcl. One Utile hoy
whom thf Eaay Chair well knew heard hla
nunc llr.t upon uraw wintry day In a Sew
Knglatid town, wben hli nttcntlorj wai at
tracted hy tho firing nf kiihh, and hu akcil
what they were for. The reply wa in ub
ftance that Mine dNrrptitahle people wtro
celehratlDgToinl'aiue'a birthday. The tone
implied that he wai a dreadful reprobate.
Hut surely Tom l'alne had done omc good
crvlue. He wrote "Common Scnce," and
puhllibed it in the dark hour of the revolu
tion. It wa a wholly unteltMi ncrvice,
for lio took out no copyright; ami even in
tlioM' ilayn, among a colonial population of
three million" only, poor and in the midst
ol exhausting war, there were a hundred
llioiiund ofthe copies of tho pamphlet told.
Washington, Franklin, Adams, Jctluron,
lialled him ai a public henefastor. Hut
among latter American hia name was al
ways mentioned with horror and dttdaln.
It It agreed that no single came was more
ellectivc In producing the declaration of
Independence than bin "Common Sense."
Yet, sixteen )rars ago,' when a portrait of
l'alne wan ollered to the city or Philadel
phia, to be hung In the hall where the
eclaratlou was adopted and signed, It was
declined. A llkeucis of Tom l'alne, the
Intldel, mH-t not hang among the atigmt
shades of the fathers. Yet the religious
views of "Tom l'alne" were essentially
those ol "Tom Jefferson," whose name will
be saluted as among the mo-t Illustrious of
this Illustrious year.
Tbe feeling aLout l'alne In the beginning
ol the century was largely political. When
Jeflerion was president, he invited l'alne
to come to this country fro 31 France, where
he had narrowly escaped tho guillotine, and
he arrived In October, 1:W. His friends
gave him public dinners. Ills opponent
said that Tom l'aiue and Tom Jefferson
ought to dangle from the samo gallows.
1 -r ctio in n,at golden age of tbe repub
lic, to which no many igi.;- i.ntutnntlnus
revert from the corruption of till nge ol
liraos and iron upon which we have fallen,
there wa some warmth ot party feeling
and expression. When l'alne came to New
York he stopped at the City Hotel, on
llroadway, lut north of Trinity Church.
And the miUi.-ltlve little Laurie Todd, or
(iraut TtiOrburn, heard ono day that the
great sinner wm standiugat the door ofthe
hotel, and he ran out with some friends to
see him. tint Mr. l'alne had gone to bis
room. The Scottlinun was not to be foiled,
and he asked a servant who was sweeping
the hall II Mr. Paine was at home. Hear
ing that he was, Thorburn pushed on, and
was shown into a largo room where the
table wa-stet (or breakfast. One gentleman
was writing, another reading tbe news
paper, ami at the farther end of tho room
stood a long, lank, coarse-looking tlgure
vanning his hlnd-quartera before the tire.
The intruder asked for Mr. Paine. Tbe
figure by the lire replied that his name was
Paine. Thorburn put out his hand, which
Paine took, and the little Scotchman said
that lie had called from mere curiosity.
Mr. l'alne replied that he was very glad to
satisfy it. Upon which Thorburn made a
bow "like a goose ducking his head under
wuttr," walked out, and shut tbe door,
whlU all tbe gentlemen In the room burst
'oti a laugh, which he heard all the way to
the door, lio did not care; lie had seen the
great man. Hut lie bad to pay for the
pleasure. Tho great city was n small town
then, and tho story ol thu in'erview grew .11
it was repeateJ. Tliorbiun was clerk of the
Sotch Presbyterian Cuurcn, In Cedar
street, and if ho had hobnobbed with Vol
taire us Yoltalro was then generally es
teemed or hud sworn eternal friendship
with David Hume, ho could not have stuck
bis brethren with greater horror. Tbe
Kirk Session took alarm. A special meet
ing was called, and (leant Thorburn was
suspended from psalm-slnglng for three
months because be had shaken bauds with
Doubtless Paiuo has been very harshly
treated. Ills honesty can not ho doubted.
Ills political views were those of the men
of his time whom we most reverence, and
his religious opinions did not differ from
tlioio of many men whom wo most highly
honor. He was not an Inlldel In tho ordi
