The Irish Cadet at West Point
Tho circumstances related In on extract from

lesson, not only to the arUtocraclea of the Old

certain aristocratic notions in our own coun

pointed successively three young persons lo
eiholarahips In tho West Point Military Acad

lack of bralua sufficient to carry on the course
of etudlts pursued in that institution. These
appointments had been mado under a pressure
of Influential iccommcndatlonsi one of them
was recommended by General Bcott himself,
ana aisuiistca within a year,
Mr. Dawes waa almost in dlspalr Tho repu

failures of tho yohng nun sent by him to the
groat military school of the couutrj . He di-
tormlncd to close bis cars to applicants and
become an applicant himself. lie ruoltcd
that If ho could find a boy, high oi low, who
could eland Uro at West Point ha would appoint
him cadet. Accidentally tho fame of an Irish
lad, nho had been making astonishing strides
lu learning at the public schools In his district,
reaehed him and he made a Journey to thu boy's
home, found him at work with his father In
ihu Held, and besought the parent to allow hla
a to go to West Point. This was reversing
tnu usual order of things with an emphasis.
Insad of Lelng bored by t'-io friends of somo
joutu or wealthy or Influential connections,
who besought him to pension their protcgo in

Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, mado a very hand

to send each two statues or men belonging to
such States whoso cttU or military renown
mado them worthy of such commendation.
Tho House was etrong'y In favor of the resolu
tion, but Mr. Holman, of Indiana, as a matter
of course, railed for a division, when the reso
lution was raised by a vote of SO to SO.
Mr. J. W. Allen, of Illinois (Cop.), when
the "morning hour11 hsd expired, rtad a
speech agslntt Henry Winter Davie's bill for
tho reconstruction of the States lu rebellion.
It was not a cheerful speech. He regarded
everything ssld, dono or thought by our Gov
ernment as wrong, and thla plan of reconstruc
tion wrong. He did not bellcvo tho rebel Statca
out of tho Union they couldn't get out
couldn't accede couldn't vote themselves out.
If they are out, he would regard the war against
them as wicked at a war agalntt Canada? We
concluded, after Uitenlng patiently to the gen
tleman's remsrks, that If hla notions were
correct, the rebel Statoa " wayward alatera"
are moro alnncd against than sinning) that
they still enjoy all the rights belonging to the
loyal States, aud a little more; that Jeff. Davis
Is a much abused Individual, and President
Lincoln a great usurper. Hla speech did not
seem to lutercat even the Copperheads, who
took H aa a matter of course, and most of
whom went out to gel a drink during Its de

speech In support of the bill.

strange to the eyca of a loyal man that tbe

for fighting against the Government, and will
allow In Ita own Congressmen to openly en
courage these self-same prisoners, In Isnguago
that cannot bo misunderstood, to still hold on
that they aro right and we are wrong that all
the blood that baa flown and treasure spent baa
been In vain. I consider that the speeches of

The decision of the House of Lords on the
Alexandra appeal case waa given yesterday.
The question at laaue was whether tho Barons
of the Court of Exchequer had power to make
rules giving the Crown a right of appeal In the
caso. The Lord Chancellor, Lord St. Leonards,
Lord Chelmsford and Lord Kingsdown yester
day delivered their opinion that the Court of
Exchequer had no right to make anch rules.
Lord Cranwortb. and Lord Wensleydslo took
the opposlto view, that the Court had the power
to make tho rules. The majority being against
the Crown the appeal was dismissed with costs.
