said Mr. l!awn, looking at the brawny
arms and bright eyes that promised
strength and intelliccnce. Besides,

As he spoke he spread his palm

turned upon his heel, and turned

'The wan's me wife, the other me

lie bared his arms to the shonldcr
as he spoke, and Mr. Bawn looked
at them and then at his face.
I'll hire you for a week,' he said ;
and now as it's noon, go down into
the kitchen and tell the girl to get
you your dinner a hungry man
And with an Irish blessing, the
new hand obeyed, while Mr. Bawn,
untying his apron, went up stairs to
his own meal.
Suspicious as he was of the new
hand's integrity and ability, he was
agreeably disappointed. Connor
worked hard and actually learned
fast. At the end of the week he was
Jengagcd permanently, and boon was
the best workman in the shop.
He was a great talker, but not fond
of drink or wasting money. As his
wages grew Lc hoarded every penny,
and wore the same shabby clothes in
which he made his first appearance.
'Beer costs money,' he said one day,
and ivcry cint I spind puts me oil'
the bringing Nora and Jamescy
over ; and as for clothes, them I have
must do me betther no coat to me
back than no. wife and boy by me
fireside, and anyhow its slow work
It was slow work, but he kept at it
all the same. Other men, thought
less and full of fun, tried to make
him drink, made a jest of his saving
habits, coaxed him to accompany
them to places of amusement, or to
share in their Sunday frolics. All in
vain. Connor liked beer, liked fun,
liked companionship, but he would
not delay that long-looked-for bring
in s of Nora over, and was not mean
enough to accept favors ol others.
He kept his way like a martyr to his
great wish living on little, working
at night on an extra job he could
earn a few shillings by; running
errands in his noontide hours of rest,
and talking to any one who would
listen of his great nope, ana or Nora
and little Jamesey. . j
At first the men who prided them
selves on lcinr all Americans, and
on turninsr out the bit work in the
city, made a sort of butt of Connor,
whose wild Irish ways anu verdancy
were indeed often laughable. But
he won their hearts at last, and when,
one day, mounting a work-bench, he
shook his little bundle, wrapped in a
red handkerchief, before their eyes
and shouted 'look, boys, I've eot
the whole at last ; I'm going to bring
Nora and Jamesey over at last!
Whoroo ! I've got it !' all felt a
sympathy in his joy, and each grasped
his great hand in eordial congratula
tions, and one proposed to treat all
around and drink a good voyage lo
They parted in a merry mood,
most of the men going to comforta
ble homes. But poor Connor's rest1
ing place was a poor lodging house,
where he shared a crazy garret with
four other men, and in the joy of his
heart, the poor fellow exhibited his
handkerchief, with bis hard-earned
savings tied up in a hard wad in the
middle, before he put it under his
pillow and fell asleep. When he
awakened in the morning he found
his treasure gone. Some villain,
more contemptible than most bad
men are, had robbed him.
At first Connor could not believe
it lost He searched every corner
of the room, shook his quilt and
blanket, and begged those about him
to 'quit joking and give it back.'
But at last he realized the truth.
'Is any man that . bad that it's
thaved from me?' he asked in a
breathless way. . 'Boys, is any man
that bad ?'
And some ono answered
No doubt of it, Connor. It's
Then Connor put his head down
on his hands and lifted op his voice
and wept. It was one of those sights
which men never forget. It seemed
more than he could bear, to have
Nora and his child put, as he ex
pressed it. months away from him
But when he went to work that day
it seemed to all who knew him that
he had picked up a new deter
minalion. 11 is hands were never
idle. His face seemed to say 'I'll
bavo Nora with me yet.' At noon
he scratched out a letter, blotted and
very strangely scrawled, telling Nora
what had happened ; and those who
observed him had - noticed that he
had no meat with his dinner. Indeed,
from that moment he lived on bread,
potatoes and cold water, and worked
harder than leforc. It grew to be the
talk of the shop, and now, that sym
pathy was excited, every one want
ed to help Conner. Jobs were thrown
in his way, kind words and friend
ly wishes helped him mightily; but
no power could make him share the
food or Orink of any other workman.
lhat seemed a sort of charity to
him. Still ho was helped along. A
present from Mr. Bawn, at pay-day,
set Nora ; as he said, 'a week nearer,'
and this and that and the other added
to the little hoard. It grew faster
than the first, and Connor's burden
-ai not so heavy. At last, before
he hoped it, he was once more able
to say, 'I'm going to bring them
over,' and to show his handkerchief,
in which, as before, he tied up his
earning this time, however, only
to 'Lis friends. Cautious, among
strangers, he hid his treasure, and
kept his vest buttened over it night
and day until the ticket was bought
and scut Then every man, woman
and child, capable of hearing and
iderstanding, knew that Nora and
her baby were coming.
There was Jcbn Jones, who had
more of the brute in his composition
than usually falls to the lot of men
even he, who "had coolly hurled his
hammer at an offender's Load, miss
ing him by a hair's breadth, would
upend ten minutes in the noon hour
in reading the Irish news to Connor.
There was Tom Barker, the meanest
man among the number, who had
never becu known to give anything
to any one before, actually bartered
an old jacket for a pair of gut vases
which a peddler brought in his
basket to the shop, and presented it
to Connor for his Nora's mantel-piece.
And here was idle Dick, the appren
tice, who actually worked two hours
on Connor's work, when illness kept
the Irishman home one day. Connor
felt his kindness," and returned it
whenever it was in his power, and
the days flew by and brought at last
a letter from his wife.
"She would start as he desired,
and she was well and so was the boy,
and might the Lord bring them safe
to each other's arms and bless those
who bad been so kind to him.'
That was the substance of the epis
tle which Connor proudly assured
his fellow workmen that Nora wrote
herself. Sho had lived at service, as
girl, with a certain good old lady,
who had given her an education, the
items of which Connor told npon his
fingers. The ratlin' that's one, and
the writin. thatts t,wo, and moreover
she knows all a woman can.' Then
he looked at his fellow workmen with
tears in his eyes, and asked :
'Do ye wondhcr the time seems
long between me an' her, boys ?''
So it was Nora at the dawn of
day Nora at noon Nora at night
until the news came that the
Stormy l'etrel had come to port, and
Connor, breathless and pale with ex
citement, flung his cup in the air and
It happened on a holiday after
noon, and hall a dozen men were
ready to go with Conner to the steam
er and give his wife a greeting. Her
little home was ready. Mr. Bawn's
own servant had put it in order, and
Connor took one peep at it licfore be
'She had'nt the like of that in the
ould counthry, he said ; but she'll
know how to kape them tidy.
Then he led the way toward the
dock where the steamer lay, at a pace
which made it hard for the rest to
follow him. The spot was reached
at last; a crowd of vehicles blockaded
the street ; a troop of emigrants came
thronging up; fine cabin passengers
were stepping into cabs, and drivers,
porters and all manner of employes
were shouting ami yelling in the usu
al manner. Nora would wait on
board for her husband he knew that
The little group made their way
into the vessel. at last, ana mere
amidst those who sat watching for
coming friends, Connor searched for
the two so dear to him ; patiently
at first, eagerly but patiently ; but
by-and-by growing anxious and ex
cited. ' " - : 1
She would nivcr go - alone, he
said. 'She'd be lost entirely; I bade
her wait, but I dont see her, boys, I
think she'a not in it.' "
'AVTiy don't yon seethe captain?'
asked one. and Connor jumped at
the suggestion. In a few moments
he stood before a portly, rubicund
man, who nodded to him kindly.

At the name of Nora the captain
started. In a moment he asked :
What is your name?'
Pat Connor,' says the roan.
'And your wife's was Nora ?
- 'That's her name, and the boy with
her is Jamesey, yer honor,' said Con
nor. The captain looked at Connor's
friends, they looked at the captain.
Then he said, huskily:
Sit down, my man ; I've got some
thing to tell you.' .
She's loft behind, said Connor.
She sailed with us,' said the cap

Where is she ?' asked Connor.
The captain made no answer.
'My roau,' he said, 'we all have our
trials ; Cod sends thetu.'
Connor, said nothing. He was
looking at the captain, now white to
'It's been a sickly season, said
the captain. 'We had illness on

'I did'nt,' said Connor; 'I can't

Many died, went on the captain

'His mother watched him night
and day,' said the captain, and we did
all we could, but at last he died ; only
one of many. But it broke my heart
to see the mother looking out npon

Connor groaned. :

In ah hour he was at home on the

Many persons in Ohio recollect the
absconding and defaulting banker.
Wm. W. Tread well, of Hudson, in
January, 1864, his arrest soon after,
at Mansfield, Ohio, his trial and coo-'
viction in Juue following, his escape:
from jail within an hour after, and
bis murder three days after, by Cow-1
ell, who escaped with him, and the
trial, conviction, and execution of
Cowell in 1865. Mr. Channcr Tread-
well, of Wheatland, Hillsdale county,
in behalf of the creditors of Tread-
well, took cut letters of administra
tion on his estate in 1865, and com
menced suit against Samuel Hester,
the father-in-law of Treadwell, who
lived near Mansfiold, for the money
with which Treadwell absconded.
Treadwell was known to have taken
with him between 150,00(1 and 60.-
000, and it was claimed aa the part
of the administrator that the greater
share or this money it'll into the
hands of Hester at tho time of Tread
well's arrest. The suit was tried in
the United States District Court at
Cleveland, Justice Swayne presiding,
and resulted in a verdict against
Hestei of 4C8.416. The trial lasted
the whole week, and was one of the
most closely contested cases ever
tried at Cleveland. The jury were
out only fifteen minutes. Witnesses
were in attendance from Ohio, Indi
ana, Michigan, Illinois, and Iowa.
Hester is a very wealthy man, and
the judgment can be collected unless
bis property is put under rover, which
it will be a hard matter, for him to
do successfully.' Tread well'a indebt

GRANT AND SEYMOUR.
GRANT AND SEYMOUR. Look on this Picture then on
That—Hyperion to Satyr—A
[From the New York Evening Post.]
Grant's father removed from Penn
sylvania into Ohio, where Grant was
born; Seymour's father removed
from Connecticut into New York,
where Seymour was born. Both are
therefore the sons of carpet-baggers.
Grant was once defeated in an at
tempt to get office; Seymour has
been several times defeated in simi
lar attempts, and commonly runs be
hind his ticket
Grant is a soldier; Seymour is a
lawyer. Grant has never served in
Congress, neither has Seymour;
Grant has held no ievil .office under
the Federal Government, neither has
Seymour. Neither ot the two men
was conspicuous in National politics
before the war. Each really began
in 1661 the career by which he is
known to the public. Grant was
then a book-keeper in a Galena leath
er store, and Seymour was traveling
in Wisconsin. Both were Demo
When the retals fired on Sumpter
Grant went to Springfield to serve in
the State Adjutant-General's office,
and help to equip trooiie. Seymour,
being at Milwaukee, refused to speak
for the war ; and it is asaterted and
not contradicted, expressed his sym
pathy with "the South. At this
point the career of the two men di
verge. It may be useful to follow
them through the trying scenes of
war. Grant's weapon was the sword;
Sevmour s his tongue; let us see
how each served his country.
Grant entered the army as colonel;
Sevmour remained silent Bull Sun
came. G rant quietly drilled bis men;
Seymour quietly sucked his thumb
But events called Seymour out first.
On the 2Sth of October, 1861, Sey
mour broke ground at Utica. He
saidi "If it is true that slavery must
be abolished to save this Union, then
the people of the South should be
allowed to withdraw themselves.'
There was at that time general cry
that party lines should be broken
down, and all men should unite, re
gardless of party, for the defence ol
the Government, under the name or
a Union party. For this end Demo
crats and Republicans were nomina
ted together npon ticket, and War
Democrats and Republicans joined, in
its support Bnt Mr. Seymour said :
UI appeal to the conservative and
Datriotic men who have jotneu inu
organization if they are acting wisely
and weu in auuuauns wiut uiuse
whose principles and ptLrpotet they
detest, or in placing in office men
whom they believe to have been in
strumental in causing this war."
While Seymour wss thus attacking
the party which by the choice of the
American people represented the
government. Grant was preparing to
attack the rebels ; and on the 1st of
November, ten days after Seymour s
Utica speech, Grant led his troops to
battle at Belmont, where he so crip
pled the enemy as to prevent an in
tended invasion of Missouri.
In February, 1862, Grant captured
Fort Donelson," which filled Union
men with joy, and caused consterna
tion in the rebel ranks. Nashville
fell, Kentucky was relieved from in
vasion, Columbus, on the Mississppi,
wss evacuated, and the rebel armies
rapidly retreated to Corinth." It is not
recorded that Mr. Seymour took part
by voice in any of the joyful demon
strations consequent upon this event
The official report of his speeches is
a blank during this period. But on
the 10th of September, 1862, Sey
mour received the Democratic nom
ination for Governor in New York.
Grant had once more beaten the reb
els at Shiloh, and was now thinking
of Vicksburg, when Seymour rose in
the Convention at Albany, and thank
ing the delegates for his nomination,
lamented that no compromise had
been made with the rebels. Mc-
Clellan bad been defeated, the coun
try was gloomy, and Seymour thought
rt a proper occasion, for what ? for
encouragement ? for cheering words?
fog urging men to stand by the gov
ernment ? No ; he said : "From the
dragon's teeth sown broadcast by
Congress have sprung the armies
which have drive back our forces,
and which now beleaguer the eapitol
of oar country. The acts of the na
tional legislature have givea pleasure
to the abolitionists, victories ta .site
secessionists. loose in power
have done much to justify this rebell
ion ia the eyes of the world." "Re
bellion is not necessarily wrong. .
Bebel forces, as he said, were "be
leagurmg the eapitol," where Con
greas was in session. Seymour
tiaerefore thought it a proper occv
siott to say "the assemblage of Con
gress throws gloom over the nation ;
its continuance in session is more
dseaatrous than defeat on the field of
(Mettle. It excites alike alarm and
disgust. He added, "this war can
not be brought to a successful con
sluaion. or on country restored to
an honorable ptace under Republi
can leaders." Ikisapprehensions of
the Norta with regard to the South
have drenebed the lauul with blood.''
And then he came urvm his favorite
theme, the dreadful am1 unbearable
burden of taxation, "repudiation, dec.
Meantime Grant was at work be
fore Vicksburg. The countr
impatient, lacked confidence" it
generals, and was cast down at .tae
slowness of military operations. A.1
was the part of wise and true states
men to inspire the people with cour
age and patience ; to show then the
neoeaity of a Arm and determined
attitude towards the enemy ; to urge
them to uphold the authority of the
administration, regardless of pacta es.
What did Air. Seymour say about
this time? He was then Governor of
New York ; and in his first mtasage
he took occasion to speak once more
of "Northern disuMonuts, to com
plain that "the laws, courts and offi
cers of New York' had been "t reeled
with marked and public cont empf
by the 'administration, and that its
"social order and sacred righ Is had
been violated." He said : "Th is war
should have been averted ; but, when
its flood-gates were opened, the ad
ministration could not grasp its iH
mensions nor control its sweep.'
Nowhere did he blame the rebels,
without at the same time blaming the
administration and the party in pow
er as equally disunionists.
While Seymour thus uses ms in
fluence as Governor to bring the Gov
ernment into contempt, and to stir
op in the North hatred and suspicion
toward it. Grant was seeking to
beat the enemy, and about this tame
said : "I shall take no step back

have considered the plan, , and have
determined to carry it out
A crisis in the affairs of the nation
and of the war came on in July,
1863. Grant had been for several
months beleaguering Vicksburg ; no
one knew with what success. Lee
hsd invaded Pennsylvania, and was
opposed by the Army of the Fotomac
under Meade. The peopie were
anxious, excited, fearful of disaster.
Seymour was then Governor; and it
was in his power, by cheering and
hopeful words, to animate the down
cast, to rally the people for s determ
ined effort, to unite all men for the
salvation of the Union. Is that what
he did? On the 4th of July head
dressed the people of the Academy of
Music ta New York. He begun with
a sneer, well calculated to delightt the
enemies of the Union. "When I
accepted the invitation to speak
with othera at this meeting, we were
promised the downfall of Vicksburg,
the opening or the Mississppi, the
probable capture of the Confederate
eapitol, and the exhaustion 01 tue
rebellion. But in the moment of ex
pected victory there came the mid
night cry for help from Pennsylva
nia, dec It was the key-note of his
peecb it v3 one Jong and bitter,
philipie against the administration.
But while Seymour was still railing
and complaining, delighting all who
wished the war to fail and Jeff. Davis
to win. Grant was receiving the sur ¬
render of Pemberton and his army,
and of Vicksburg, and Meade was
defeating Lee in a bloody battle at
No sooner bad Vicksburg fallen
than Grant sent a force to overtake
and defeat Johnson, and another to .
help Banks against Port Hudson.
Port Hudson fell, and Johnson was
defeated about the time the New York
riot broke out That riot, the result
to a large extent of the Fourth of
July speech of Seymour,, was anima
ted by the most cruel ana mean spir
it. Yet Seymour addressed the men
who had burned an orphan asylum
and killed defenceless and harmless
men and women and children, in lan
guage which could not fail to encour
age them, and persuade them that
they were right He said, according
to tho WorLT report, "On Saturday
last I sent the Adjutant-General of
the State to Washington fop the pur
pose of requesting that the draft be
postponed; and I had every reason
to believe that the request would be
com plied with." It will be seen that
he still spoke, even to rioters, in a
tone of complaint Not only this.
he further gratified the rioters by
ursine the withdrawal of troops from
one of the most disorderly wards.
The next year, in pursuance of the
same policy of gratifying the law
less, he subscribed to the Chicago
platform, which urged the cessation '
of hostilities against the rebel rioters
in the south.
Seymour's .language and cenduct
gave great hopes to the rebels. His
Feurth of July speech was reprinted
at Richmond, and regarded by all
the enemies of the Union as a prom
ise of help from the isorth. But .
Grant's efforts and victories cast
down the rebels, and broke the pow
er of their riotous organization.
Rosecranswas defeated at Chics
manga, and once more Seymour lifted a
up his voice on the hopelessness of
the war. On the 31st of Oclobor,
1863. at the Cooper Institute, he
spoke of the probable exhaustion of
the country, of the enormous debt,
of the hopelessness of the struggle,
and urged "conciliation." A few days
after Grant defeated Bragg at ioofc-
In August 1864, Seymour was
President of that Chicago Convention
which, under his inspiration and that
ot Yallandigham, again denounced
the war as a failure, and demanded
an Immediate cessation of hostilities.
Unluckily for him, who was so often
unlucky, Atlanta was captured by
Grant's lieutenant and friend, Sher
man, only a few days alter this plat
form xt submission to rebellion was
It would aerra no -useiul .end to
carry the comparison further. All
through we see Seymour advocating
a poliey which would have divided
the North and given the victory to
Jeff.- Davis; although, at the same
time, we see Grant carrying the flag
of his country from victory to victo
ry. Who was the wisest statesman
ot the two? . Who the most patnotjc
man ? Who the best, most useful
citizen ? He who from the beginning -
called the war a failure, and endeav- .
ored to stir up hatred and suspicion
against the chosen government of ,
the people? or he who met the rebels
and defeated them in battle, till at
last the rebel leaders fled, and their
armies were disbanded ? Who was .
the worthiest and wisest- he. who j
paltered with rioters, and encour
aged them with promises that their
lawless demands should be granted ? ,
or he who, in the face of a far more
