OJV THE RECOGJVITIOA'
Again, in the convention that framed
the Constitution of the United States
-when, amid the differences of opinion
nnd the antagonisms of views and feel
ings, it seemed likely that notnlng
could be bone he said:
How iias it happened that we have
not once thought of applying to the
Father of Lights ? In the beginning of
the contests with Great Britain we bad
dally prayers In this room. Our prayers
were heard. Have we jiow forgotten
that Friend ? I have lived long, and
the longer I live tho .nore.proof I see
that God governs in the. nffairs.of men.
If a sparrow cannot fail without bis no
tice, can an empire rise without bis
aid ? We have been assured in the sa
cred writings that "except the Lord
build the house, they labor in valu that
build it." I believe this. I also be
lieve that without his concurring aid
,we shall succeed in this political build
ing no better than the builders of Uabei.
Infidels do not usually track in that
strain. They arc not familiar with that
fort.of language. It does not suit eith
er their views or their feelings. At that
time Franklin was at Icaet eighty years
old, and bad no inducement to dissem
ble. If, he bad felt the disposition. And
no one that we ever heard of ever ac
cused him ,of dissembling.
Once more: There was once 6cnt
him the manuscript of infidel work, de
signee; ior puDiication, ana his opinion
was asked both in regard to the charac
ter of the work and to the propriety of
its publication. It has been asserted
repeatedly, nnd is-generally believed.
the manuscript sent was a part or ail of
jur.anomas raine's "Acre ot iteason."
and Was sent by Paine himself. How
ever this, mayjiave, been, the doctor's
reply has been preserved, and part of
it was in the following words :

THE SULLIVAN TRIAL.
Exciting Times in Chicago.
The chief topic of conversation in
Chicago during the past week has been
the Sullivan trial, the commencement
of which was mentioned in The Jfbrth
western last week. It will be recollect
ed that Sullivan songnt Mr. Ilanlord in
company with his brother and wife, one
day in August last, to compel Mr. Han
ford to retract certain charges against
Airs, auiiivan, maae ior tne purpose ot
influencing the common council to re
ject me nominees to tne scnooi board.
made by the late Mayor Colvin. Mr,
Hanford, when confronted by Sullivan,
replied that he would maku good his
words or retract them at the proper
time; ontreiusea to retract under co
ercion; whereupon Sullivan knocked
Hanford down. A struggle ensued,
ending in the shooting of Hanford by
Sullivan, and the plea put in by the de
fendant's lawyers was that the killing
oi tiantoru was in seit-deiensc, although
Hanford was the smaller man. was-nn
armed, and was beset by two men. The
theory was that Sullivan being held by
a by-stander. and hearing his wife say
that "the scoundrel Hnntordl has
'struck me," fired the fatal shot from
momentary exasperation. The rulings
of the court were, on almost all points,
in favor of the defendant. This was so
apparent, .that one of the defendant's
lawyers rcmaikedto the state's attor
ney, "1 he courtis against you." and
again to his associate counsellor, who
wits questioning a witness, "Sit down,
young man, and let me go on with this
vitues8 ; the court is tnking care of us."
Iho court room was filled from day to
day with ruffians. This is no unusual
matter, however, for criminal courts
everywhere, and as a rule, swarm with
persons wuose sympathies are with the
captive evil-doers. But this rowdy.
rnlliau audience was permitted again
nnd again to applaud the Sullivan side
nnd to hits the state's attorney. The
judge, when appealed to put an end to
suen unseemly demonstrations, made
no effort to effort to clear the room of
disorderly persons, merely remarking
mat me "court was mcipiess.
the sympathies ot the court toward
the prisoner were apparent in ruling
out testimony important for the prose
cution, and In overruling nearly all ob
jections to the testimony offered on the
other Mdc. uut wncn the instructions
were given to the. jury, there was no
doubt In the mind of most candid, in
telligent persons, that Judge Mncallls
tcr intended to so-hedge about the jury
as to compel a verdict In favor of the
prisoner. Inc judge instructed the
jury that previous good reputation
should be taken into account in deter
mining the guilt or innocence of the de
fendant: that it Hanford came toward
Sullivan in a threatening manner, while
tne latter was neid oy a by-stander,
then the latter bad the right of self-de
fense, even so far as to shoot the fatal
shot. One of the'niost' starling instruc
tions was the following: "The jury are
Instructed that a-Citizen -has a right to"
carry about his person a loaded pistol
for a lawful purpose i and the protec
tion of one's pers6a.lrum nu unlawful
attack is a lawful purpose." The jury
were not left to the discretion of bring-
ng in a verdict ot manslaughter, as tne
following ambiguous instruction was
designed to imply: "But nlthongh the
Jury may think that the defendant is
not justified in what be did, yet, If the
ury entertain a reasonable doubt as to
whether he ought to be. convicted of
murder of murder or manslaughter, or
ought to be acquitted, then the prisoner
should have the benefit of-such doubt,
nnd should be acquitted."
l he jury retired, and were out all
night without agreeing. Oh the next
day I hey nt-ked for the State law In re
gard to self defense. The state's attor
ney argued that they ought to have It.In-
asinuch as the jury are made the judges
of the law, as well as the fact. Bnt the
court refused to grant the request.
During the debate it appeared that the
udge had suppressed the instruction
to the jury handed up by the state's at
torney, which was a verbatim copy of
the statute in regard to self-detense.
The jury retired again and were-out
nnotber night, and came in on the
morning of the second day declaring
tbat'there was no . prospect of agree
ment, whereupon the jury were, dismissed.-
In the afternoon Sullivan was
allowed his liberty on bail lu the sum
of eight thonvnnd dollars for his ap
pearance at the December term for a

.1 ReminUccnce of the Rattle
in Which lie Fell.
A few years ago It was my privilege
to spend a couple of days with a gentle
man whoso oeautitiu estate lies on tne
banks of the river Thames, a few miles
abovo the thriving town of Chatham
During the course of one of the even
ings I chanced to remark that as we
were near the town of Moraviantown,
we could not be very far from the bat
tlefield where the celebrated Indian
Chief. Tecumseh. perished. "No." re
plied my friend, "it Is but n short dis
tance trom here, and niiiiougn, x was
but a boy at the time, I remember the
day as though it were but yesterday.
My father had a small clearing and u
saw mill. Our farm was on the long
woods road which followed the bank of
the Thames, and at that time ran
through an almost unbroken forest from
Cbathan to London. The evening be
fore the battle General Proctor and his
Indian allies encamped on my father's
farm, just outside of the clearing, lu
the edge of the lorcst. After dark my
mother and I went out to see the camp
fires. The scene was one never lo be
forgotten ; the blazing fires with their
ascending sparks, the gloom of the for
est, the wearied men sleeping soundly
on the bare earth, tho weird forms of
the pickets moving among the trees, all
combined to make an impression on my
boyish mind, which long years and a
busy life have not effaced. Early in the
morning the scouts brought in word
that the American General Harrison
was approaching, accompanied by a
large band ot the celebrated Kentucky
horsemen. General Proctor got his lit
tle army in motion as quickly as possi
ble, Intending to make a stand at Mora
viantown. and to this end scouts were
sent forwaid to prepare the Indians tor
battle, and .to remove the women and
children to plates of safety in the
woods. My father and I were working
that morning on the mill-dam and Te
cumseh came near to where we were,
and stood above us on the bank, saying
that he intended to remain there until
the Americans came in sight. I can re
call just how he looked as he stood
there in bis war costume of paint and
feathers, with one arm testing upon the
neck of a beautiful dark gray horse.
My father and I pursued bur work, oc
casionally looking up to the spot occu
pied oy tne cdici. am at once we nearu
a terrible whoop, and looking np we
saw Tecumseh dashing across the clear
ing like the wind, pursued by about
twenty of the Kentucky horsemen. The
Americans had come. Tecumseh over
took Proctor and the army before they
bad reamed Moraviantown and upon
consultation it was .decided to come to
a halt and prepare for battle. The place
sclcctid was admirable for the purpos
es of defense It was a ridge of high
land, covered with beech and maple
timber 'and almost surrounded by a
blackash swamp over which mlry soil
it would bo next to impossible for the
American cavalry to pass. "Trees were
also felled, to mako tho approach more
difficult. In a short time the battle-began,
and after firing a few rounds Proc
tor withdrew bis men and pursued bis
retreat towards London. The Indians
however, continued the fight and brave
ly maintained their position till the
death of their chief, who fell pierced by,
a bullet fired from a pistol by Colonel
Johnson. It is supposed that Tecumseh
mistook Johnson for Harrison, who bad
beaten him in the.battle of Tippecanoe.
and for whom he bad entertained a
deadly hatred, and had often expressed
a desire to encounter him in hand-to-hand
contest. It is.supposed he mis
took Johnson for his old enemy from
Um fact that he exposed himseff reck
lessly, rushing out some distanco in ad
vance ot his men, and singling out uoi
Johnson, who was mounted on a pow
erful horse, he hurled bis tomahawk at
him with all bis strength. The weapon
missed its aim and tho next minute he
fell mortally wounded. C P. in Si.
New Yoiik, November 2, The Con

and Brooklyn have issued to the public
a statement of their action in regard to
the charges against Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher, which were to be brought be

The committee appointed last winter
to co-operate in bringing evidence be

to this day, after more than six months

most urgent and public entreaty that
every one would speak who had any
thing to say ngalnst him, no one had

slightest responsible charge against the
moral character of Rev., Henry Ward
The report of the committee was
adopted, and the following preamble
and resolutions passed:

An English periodical, London So
ctery.publlshes a letter written by Prince
Bismarck to his wife, giving an account
of tho victory at Sedan, as follows :
xtear ueari: ine dav beiore yes
terday, before dawn, I left my quarters
here; returned to-day, and have in the
interim witnessed the great battle of
Sedan, in which we made about thirty
thousand prisoners, and threw the rest
or tne trench army we had been pnrsn
Ing from Bar lo Due Into the fortress
where, with the Emperor, they were
oougcu to surrender. At five o'clock
yesterday morning, after having till
one o'clock discussed with Moltke nnd
the French Generals the terms of the
capitulation, I was awakened by Gen
crai ueiue. whom I knew, to tell me
that Napoleon wished to sea me. Un
washed and without breakfast I rode
towards Sedan, nnd found tho Emperor
in nn open carriage, wun turce aides-de-camp,
and three on horseback, on
the highway this- side of.Scdan. I dis
mounted, saluted him, as politely as at
the' Tulllcries.and asked what were bis
commands. He desired to sue the
King. I informed him, lu accordance
with the truth, that his Majesty had his
quarters three miles off, at the place
where I am now writing, lo Napolc
on's question where be was to go, i
offered him. as I did not know the
neighborhood, my quarters at Don
chery, a small place close to Sedan,
He accepted tho offer, and rode, ac
companied by tho six Frenchmen, by
me and Charles, who, in the meantime,
had followed me through the solitary
morning hours',' towards our side. Be
fore arriving at' Doncherv he regretted
his decision, on account of the crowd
that might be expected, and asked
whether be might alight at a loucly
workman's cottage bv the roadside. I
told Charles to inspect it, who reported
that it was poor and'dirly. Jfimporte,
said Napoleon, and we ascended a nar
row, rickety stair-case, we sat an
hour in a chamber ten feet square,
with a deal table nnd two rush-bottom
ed chafrs; the others were below. A
mighty contrast to our last interview,
in '67, Jn thoTuIllerlcs. Our conversa
tion was difficult if I was not to touch
on thlpgs which should painfully affect
the man so terribly .cast down uy i?od's
powerful hand. I had sent Charles to
fetch officers from the town, and to re
quest Moltke to come. We then dis
patched one ot the tormer to rcconnoi
tcr. and discovered, at half a mile's
distance, at Fiesnois, a small chateau
In a park. Thithc-r I accompanied the
Emperor with an escort of life cuiras
siers, sent for in the meanwhile; aad
there we concluded with commanding
ucncrai wimpuen mo capitulation, in
consequence of which from fortyto
sixty tbonsand Frenchmen, with all
their baggage, became our prisoners
Yesterday and the previous day have

THEPEATAETY OF CAT C II
We venture to question the necessity
of the greater part ot the illness that
arises from colds. Why should people
have colds at all? Unlike many qtber
diseases, it is well understood bow
thev arise: all the conditions and cans
cs that produce colds are continually
pointed out by physicians; they are
easily measured and recognized, and
can as easily bo guarded against. All
that Is required is due forethought and
caution forethought nnd caution that
extend to the condition ot the atmos
phere in the house, the kind ot heat
used for warming the rooms, the prev
alence of draughts, the clothing worn
at borne and abroad, the precautions
against sudden changes of weather, tho
maintenance of warm. and dry feet, the
protection of the Juugs, and other deli
cate and susceptioie parts oi tne ootiy;
all of which are controllable things
with every one possessing the ordinary
faculties, and endowed Willi tne aver
age share of good sense.
If it were a penal offense to take
cold: if a cough arising from thought
less exposure were punished by a week's
imprisonment; if getting sick because
of mere incapacity to measure condi
tions nnd arrange precautions were al
ways followed by a legal penalty and a
loss of respectability catching cold
would be among the Io8tnrt8.1 There
is no uso of having judgment if we do
not'cxerclse it; no use of brains if we
do not employ forethought in so sim
ple a thing as this. In nine colds out
of ten the victim has been too stupid to
take advantage of former experience,
too torpid to understand the nature or
necessity of preventive measures, and
too dull to detect the palpable circum
stances out of which the cold has come.
A child learns not to fall down stairs
after two or three experiences ot the
kind: not to burn bis fingers in the
grate nttor once testing the qualities of
hot coals and hot Iron; but adults go
on getting colds from causes that re
peat former blunders with a perversity
that Is simply amazlug. Appleton's
From the Providence Journal.
A STRUG GEE WITH
. Mr, John F. Carpenter, Station
Agent at Ashton. was out duck hunting
near here recently, when ho saw a very
largo bird flying over tho tree-tops,
about two hundred yards high. He
fired, and brought It down. He ran to
pick. It up, and fonnd It lylnsr on its
back alive, and with bill and talons
open ready for a fight. Mr. Carpenter
attempted to lake it by tho fcet;but tho
blrdtastncd its claws into his hands,
and he was Imprisoned by a wounded
black American eagle. There was a
severe tussle, bnt the man conquered,
thongh his hands were very badly
scratched In tho fight. Tho eagle's
wings were injured, bnt it is thought
thoyarenot broken, and that it will
golt (Suimtii Strrcturl).
