JOHN' M: A K K AXD THE PA II. OF WA
TEK. John Leake lived in the neighborhood
of Mr. Curtis' Connecticut home. Order
was not Leake's firt law nor last. Though
he was a good-natured, easy tempered,
obliging man there was no on whom his
neighbors so much dreaded seeing ap
proach their homes. " There comes Leake
to borrow something, they would ay, and
hoe, and hamm?r or rake were grudgingly
lent, for they wer certain that Leikc
would lose or forget the article, or at best
return it minus the handle. A to-y went
the rounds that Joakc's next neighbor,
out of patience, said to him :
Yes, take the hoe ; but you must use
it only in' my cornfield."
Time went on, and Leak's affairs ran
down, as slack men's will aud he decided
to pull up stakes and move to Vermont,
then a tracJ? af unsettled and productive
land,and called the " New State." Leake's
Conuect.cut friends gathered about the
great wagon in which his battered house
hold goods aud his wife and children were
packed, and sorry they were at the last o
part with him. They now forgot his teas
ing faults.and felt only that he was a cheer
ful, kind-hearted fellow.
Rustic tokens of good will were offered
at partiug. The best of these was a bright
axe, with a strong helve on which the
giver's name and John's were both carved
and painted and tied together with a lover's
knot an odd flourish for au axe helve.
14 Take care of this John," said uncle
Ren, the giver, "and it will be better than
gold iu the new State."
The axe fulfilled its mission, it did prove
of more value to Leake than a world full
" No offence John," caid another neigh
bor, taking a card from his pocket, " hero
it something that, if you will tack it up
over your fire-place and take heed t' it,
will bo puie to make you a forehand :d
man in the new Statc."
It was the good old household rule :
" A time for everything and everything
in its ti.r.e; a place for everything and
everything in it place."
Leake read it aloud, and then the good
naturcd fellow said chuckling :
' Thank'ec neighbor, it's a pretty smart
rod, but it shan't fall on a fool's back.
I II take care of it." And he deposited it
in the crown of his hat, his usual place of
" There it goes," paid the civer to one
of the by-Rtanders ; " that's the lrt of it
Poor Lcnkol you can t teach an old dog
When tho movers halted that day for
their nooning, the first time John took
his hat off ho dropped unoie Rcn'a card
without perceiving it. His on, Lyman
Lcako, did &ee it. Lyman, a lad ot ten or
eleven, was the very opposite of his father
mado so probably, by the same influence
that makes the light-heeled daughter
of tho heavy-healed mother."
Pome parents are examples, some alas! are
beaeoni. Lvmtn picked up the card, and
probably thinking, "Father will never
mifS it, and nerr, nctr take rw f it."
he slipped it in his own littlo leather purse,
which had also boeogiven him ior a part
Tho little family arriveJ, after some
mishapa (to be expected) such as losing
theii whip, leaving their halters and their
water pail at a brook, etc., at their lodge
in the vast wilderness. Rut in two years
they got well ahead, in spite of Lcake'a
destructive and obstructive habits; for
he was a hard-working fellow. Fields wo;o
cleared and tilled around him ; he had
built a smalt frame houso adjoining the
log hut : nighbors had come iu at no great
distance, and a village waa growing up not
lar i row rum.
In spite of rood advioe. he had con
nectcd a wood-Louse and stable with his
" Take caro Leake," said a friend, " it
needs a caretul man to build 90. A fire
in winter up in this cold country is some
thing dreadful; it's like gunpowder a
flash and all is pone." r
"Oh, never fear," said Leake; "I
have had my portion of ill fortune in tl.ia
world ; my luck has turned."
SMr. Curt ii often impressed on the
dren that what shiftless people call ill
fortune and bad luck is but the inevitablo
consequence of their own imprudence or
It was during the third winter of tha
Leake's residence in their new home, that
just at the close of a short winter's day
the merry tinkling f sleigh-bells, w
heard, and the creaking of the runners on
the hard froten snow, and a littlo cutter
(a single sleigh J Hopped at Leake's. It
was expected, tne door opened, and shouU
of joy followed, and glad greetings of
' uncle' and aunt,' and cousin.'
"Uncle Ren" and his family had come from
Connecticut to make a long protracted
visit. When supper wa ended the card
bearing tho domestic axium caught Undo
Ren's eye. It was nailed to tho wall ov:
"I declare 1" ho exclaimed, ' well, I
never expected to see that bit of pastboard
again. 1 givo you credit mark for peserv
ing thtt, John."
"You must give that credit mark to Ly
man, brother, he preserved the card ; but
Uncle Ren smiled: "You," ho said,
you have taught him, John, but wrong end
foremost wrong end formost.
The cveniug passed off pleasantly. The
unstinted fire of a new country burned
brightly. A basket of fine apples from
the old "home orchard in Connecticut"
was unpacked, and nuts were cracked and
eaten. The elder talked about old times.
Leake gave the history of his toils on his
new farm, aud his eucccsges. He told
(ho had some right to boast, for ho had
worked diligently) how much land lie uad
cleared, what crops he had raised and con
14 My bant is full ; I have plenty of
wheat, and corn, and oats in the loft over
my' wood -house ; and pork in my cellar;
and mj' wife has Uken care of tho trinkets
butter, and appplo-sauce, and pickles,
and the like," and he ended his boat of
rural riches with saying 1 guess, Ren, my
old neighbors could not twit me now."
"Your old ncigobors, John, always
knew you for an honcft, hard working
man ; it was only your careless ways, your
want of order, that troubled us. You
know that I used to tell you that if jou
put ever so much meal in a bag with a hole
in it, it would run away."
" Yes, yes, I know; and juft fo Lyman
talks now. Among you, you put au
old head on his young shoulders."
Aud thus the cl-crs talked and the
youngsters had their pleasure ; thevLitors
telling thc wonders of jugglers, and wax
work show, and delight incident to their
down-co"ritry advanced civilization, and the
"New Stato" children relating adventures
with bears and wildcats, and their own
personal concerns with taming pquirrels
and catching rabbits, and finally the even
ing closed with a gamo of "forfaits," in
which Lyman, having been sentenced to
the penality of " bowing to the pretth.t,
kneeling to the wittiest, and ki?in? the
one he loved best," declared that all these
dues were to his cousin Sally. Ilirou.in
Sally protected and resisted ; the girlH all
joined her, ard after scramblo together,
Lyman's oldest sifter caught up a candle,
called Cousin Sally to follow her, they
made good their escape to the Kd-room,
and bolted Lyman out. Lyman retreated ;
the evening was far advanced and th
Leake's and their gue?ts seperated for the
night, but not till Lyman performed a
duty that had been postpoued by the
arrival of his uncle.
While his mother was preparing her
little affairs for the morning breakfast, Ly
man went U tho wood-boudo to split kind
lings for the morning's firea and having
finished, he could not resist tbo temptation
of showing his well-preserved axo to his
" Tho boy is & fool about that axe,"
said his father; '.'if it waa made of gold
he would not bo more choico of it : ho even
hides it awy from me that gave it to
Lyman looked at his uncle with a quite
" Conic, come, Lyman," said his father,
" there's reason in the roasting of egc;
Vrv Tnr in hr frr to night " Il
opened the door of a little closet next
firo place. " Don't go clear back o
wood house this ccld night."
11 A plaoe fur cterythingand everything
in its pbee," replied Lyman, and the axe
was returned to the wood-house.
"Now that's what I cull suptrjtiti
oua " aid his father, while he took from
the open clost a splintor brocrn to' sweep
up mo wiucipreaa coal ot the lire he hid
just raked. Jut as la w;.s finishing his
wife called to him from the kitchen, and
hastily throwing the Iroovx into fAs clotct
no went to her.
"John," sho sid, " there is no wftter in
" Well, what of that?"
"Why you know I nevcrjlike to go to bod
without a pail of wtprt hnd."
"I know that is one of your gupersiti
ons," he said.
John Leake, jo spite of All his experi
ence, persisted in looking ujwn the provi
sions of forcfiifiht as "supCHtitiou."
"Let it go, just for this or m'clit,
wife, it is dark, and biting cold, and the
way to tha well b all shod with glassy
4,,Tis bad," Mid bin wife, nifckly, find
urged no woro ; but as she 'coked
wishfully at tho empty pail, she thought
if tha should ehauco. to want water in the
nipht,it would not hi any better getting it
and an anxioun sigh escaped her. " Com
ing events" Jo scmetimes f.oam to "ast
their shadows before"
The family were noon all in bed, end in
their first sleep, the profouudest of the
night, but there is no sleep from which
a mother cannot beairakcnl by a restless
child and about one o'clock Mrs. Lr nka
wa.s aroused from hor's bv the nestlinir of
her baby. She instantly awakenod her
"John, do get up and oc where this
pmoke comes trom; the room is full cf

The bed-room was off the t-cttinir -room :
the door was opened into it, and the mo

phut in the cioact with very little air, they
had ben slow m kindling, but now thuy
had kindled thoroughly, and when Leake
.1 . 1 t .
sprang to tne ciosei aocr ana opona u,
the broom was in a light blue, and the
heated partition had taken fire. John
seized the broom and threw it on the fire
place, and at the moment,thc firo had made
f..i . I. ..... 1 r
so little progress mat a aid trie pan 01
water at hand would have extinguished
"Oh! the vail of tenter!" Ehriked
Mrs. Leake. Leake thought with anguish
of the empty pail, rushed to the kitchen
for it and rushed to the well, jho
ground was decending to the house, and,
aa he aid, " slippery ar glass, and Leake
fell And again he let the bucket down
to tho deep well and filled his pail, and
reached the house with it but the air had
rushed in through the open door and blew
up the fire like a furnace bellows.
It would uot now have felt twenty pails
f water. 'I he smoko filled the whole
houfe and the crackling of tho fire and
the outcries ot John and his wife had
awakened the whole family, who had now
came out all excepting the two girls who
had bolted themselves iuto tho httle bed,
had talked together late into the night, and
were now sleeping on, in pito of all the
niHchicf danger and misery around them.
Lyman rushed through the outer room
filled to suffocation with smoke, and shriek
ed, "Annie! Sally! fire! fire!!" There
was no answer. In vain Le banged atjaint
the door; it was too seevmy bolted.
Quick as thought ho spring to a window
communicating with the wood house, pat3
through it, and in a moment returned with
bin axe. The unoke bad become fire
tho room was blaring. Rut with II caven'e
help and blessing, (he said he tould not.
possibly havo done it alone) in a breath
the door wub bdttcred down, and in anoth
er breath the girls jumped from the win
dow, vnharrruif, followed by Lyn:an.
Tho rapid consumption of a wuod-hougc
in the country iu a cold, guty night eau
scarcely be conceived of by those who have
not witneed it. There w.13 but juit time
to extricate the horrcs and cattle IVuin the
stable whin that as well as tin houso and
wood house was cnvi loped iu flames. All,'
as Leake's neighbor had forwa.ncd him,
went together, and in one mats of ashes
lay tho labor of man months tho denr
old furnitujc ot the Connecticut ho i e, all
the children's pretty thinp, fond memorials
and'rnreeicmi lteep-sakes, that no toil, uo
kindness could make to them. '4And
all tl e dreadful los," as Mr. Curtis would
repeat to bis lifUncrs in tho school, "for
the want of a pail of icaUr in the right
place. And life eavml by the axe being
111 the right place, instead ot having boon
thrown iuto the closet, as Lrnke proposed
beside tho broom, by the caiclcfs use of
which all the harm was done."

One of the great merits of th' Drd

it gives to tin, drjrma cf cquatter cover

tirfH the idttt thst. tl:c-re U v.uy original
jurisdiction cr Icgiblrtive suthority iu th?
Tirltory, arut be.tU th.t ? 1 1 authority
thiToin is (iVritofuv, ciriug from v'ilcut
and not inherent in if.? ir.Vrlitints or tri
bunal. Its '.vhclj theory in r-ard to
authority in t! 0 TerriUritii it, iVr. what
Congress 01 r. not do with respect to them,
therefore their own triburvale, which are
the mereagtRt atd cro.ttire4 of Congix,
cannot do; th.nt the r.upreme ultimate au
thvrity of the. Territories reside ouleide on
them, and not within. Thus the Supreire
Court talced direct ifU2 with the advocate
of the squ itter fovcrei'nty doctrine, that
the prime ukimata rouro tf authctity in
tha Territwric is in its p-eople icithin, tad

Those who enroruin tho Uter view of
tht triginnf the authority in thc'Tcir!fa
tUs, dciiro it from a ect of very vicio
notions in rtr:ard to personal frcedotn and
jversonal ioverolgnty, vrhich aro very prev
alent among radical pcliticans. There are
very sound, philosophic and jnt doctrines
concerning popular sovereignty, ond al?o
very absurd, u isound and incendiary doc
trines. The sovereignty which belongs to
the people of an entire community or na
tionuWy in the aggrr.gatct hs two opposite
extremes, which arc equally in conflict
with the trie conservative idea of popular
sovereignty. On one hand it is maintain
ed that, because a nation possesses the a
tribute of sovereignty in the aggregate,
usage may, for convenience sake, hire
concentrated all tho sovereign functions in
a single individual of a specific lineage, is
king, monarch or the like. On tho otf;sr
txtre.'2 o, itjs contended that, because the
pcoplo are sovereign in the aggregate, each
particular individual member of the na
tionality is individually and severally
sovereign in his owu person and right a?
tn integer man trnd not ns a member of
tho community. Kach -of thca-3 extreme
domna is alik? liotile to the trne idea,
tho na.iou and not of the individual, and
that each individual person is an integral
participant of that sovereignty only a a
tneml'r of the nationality having no
right on the one herd to u;urp tho entire
sovereignty to himself, nor, on the other,
to eei:e to feimself his integral microscopic
fraction of sovereignty and march off with
it; but that, in the latter case, by his ex
patriation, he lces his integral individual
share cf sovereignty and becomes a wan
derer, an adventurer, a pirate, or a colon
ist, as the esse may be, until he jcic3 him
self tsoirc nationality with its consent,
The radical, red republican, squatUr
sovereign idea, prevalent among radica'
politicians, is very different from the ono
last8tated. It is. thi t, us tho people of
each nationality arc sovereign, the indi
vidual menhers of the nationality ar each
absolute eovcrcigrs :n thcr cu persons,'
in all things affecting mere individuality,
and many remain in the nationality in
which they aTe born in full absolute pes
esuiou of this individual sovereignty, or
if expatriating themselves from it, carry
along with them in iudefcariblo right this
inherent sovrrri-nty wherever they go.
The corollary of this dectrico if, that if nr'
mere thau one fitigle man go out from a
State into unoccupied domain, he carries
inherent rotereignty cu hia back, and
ftamrs ittfon his new t viitovial abode
much more, that if two cr three of such
'sovereign come outers gather together in
! an) uuoccupied domain, or two or three
I thc-und, or twenty cr thiity thouwindof
them,- they stercp their tggrcgate sover
eignty on "that territory. This then is
rquatttr sovereignty, and ito ecurce is
found in tbe red rt-rubl'can 'doctrine cf
, abtfolut') individual rovcrtignty,inht rent in;
J the intrgcr individual and not derivative
! from bis nationality. U has iu origin in
! the S3mc set cf doctrines which give the
j ntgre slave the right of running away',
married women the right to obey the al
lurements cf passional attraction, 'nd make
'all tovcrnmcntf tho mere creaturo and
buuble of tho mvb. 'ihe dogu ft of squat-'
ter povcreiguty derive- ?he huprei:e au
thority in new Terriioris fioui the few
scattering adventure therein, good and
bad, includiug the vaghbouds and outlaws
who have fled there trom fear of punish
ment, quitted organiicd government from
reMit ence under its c.nx rvalive restraints
or i pought that fortune lyoud the limits
of society, which their imprudence, want
of thrift or want of binety had hst th?m
within it. Thus the dogma i uct only
drrivod from a vic:cu3 source, but rests
I on a vicious popuhr biiis.
