While it is eminently proir to pay a

have pasred away Irom us in the possession
ol great moral worth or eminent abilities, it
is equally appropriate to speak of the living,
especially when the example is such as to

For these reasons we propose to give some

without the aid ol a teacher. His thirst for
knowledge turned his mind to the study of
Astronomy, Philosophy, Geology and Min
eralogy. Ho succeeded in acquiring a toler

the physician, and while waiting till two or
three, who bad reached the place before
him, were examined, he observed some house
plants in the window of the office and to
pass tho time, stepped up to notice the
various kinds of flowers upon them.
When his turn came, tho physician, after
instituting many inquiries, asked him il be

Botany, to which Mr. Frost replied that he
had a fondness for any of the works of
Nature, but knew but very little of Botany.
I'pon this the phyician advised him to re
turn home and make it a point to collect
one flower a day during the ensuing spring
and summer, and when collected he was to
put it with its name into a book. He re
marked, "Your health and strength will pro

whether the man was not an impostor,

to him he must first learn the Latin lan

a sufficient incentive in this instance to in

The Civil Rltht Kill.
The passage by the Hons?, on the 13th. of
the bill for the protection of all persons in
their civil rights.and by so greet a aajority,
is worthy of nolo. The important pro
visions of the bill, arc :
That all persons born ia the United States
and not subject to any foreign Tower, excluding
Indians cot taxed, are hereby declared to be
citiiess of th United Statu, without distinction
of color; bat the inhabitants of every rase
aid color, without regard to any previous con
dition of slavery or servitude, except as a pun

like pusishmcat, pains and penalties, and to
none other, any law, statnte, ordinance, regu
lation or custom to the contrary notwithstand
ing. Also, " That on all questions of law aris
ing in any case under tho provisions of this
act a final appeal shall be taken to the Su
premo Court of the United States."
The bill was passed by a vote ol 109 yeas
to 39 nays.
Congress. The Civil Bights bill passed
the Senate Thursday, just as it came from
the House, and only requires the President's
signature to become a law. Whether it will
receive his sanction is a matter of grave
doubt. The Democrats declare that the
Frecdmcn's bureau bill was mild and
inoflensivo compared with this, and confi
dently expect the President to veto it.
During the debate in the House on the
loan bill, Thursday, Mr. Hooper of Massa
chusetts explained the discrepancy between
tho recent statements of the Secretary of
the Treasury and the Comptroller of the
Currency, who stated in a recently published
lottcr that the amount actually in the Treas
ury exceeded the amount as represented by
the Secretary by, at least $34,000,000.
Mr. Hooper's statement has more impor
tanco as be vias a member of a sub-committee
of the Ways and Means, appointed to
investigate the subject. He fully sustained
the accuracy of Secretary McColloch's
figures, and showed that the Comptroller
was wholly mistaken. The Committee
lound that tho statement of the Secretary
that one hundred and sixteen millions re"
presents tho amount now at the immediate
disposal of the Government is strictly cor
Garret Davis in the Senate made a long
speech against printing the evidence from
the Reconstruction Committee, on the
ground (bat it is cxparto and dis
honest. Mr. Johnson of Maryland, who is
a member of the committee, stated that in
his opinion the evidence wss taken fairly and
DEruT or ins Lois Bill. The House
after a protracted session, lasting until
nearly midnight on Friday, defeated Secre
tary McCulloch'a Loan bill, and every sub
stitute offered for it.
The bill gave the Secretary additional
powers to convert Treasury notes, certificates
of indebtedness, ic into long bonds, and it
was earnestly apposed by Mr. Stevens, Mr.
Boutwcll of Mars., and others, on the ground
that it would give tho Secretary power to
contract the currency too rapidly and thus
bring on a general financial crisis and crash.
Mr. Morrill, chairman of the Committee
ol Ways and Means, closed the debate in a
brier and pertinent speech, in which be
highly eologixed tho Secretary of tho Treas
ury and defended his financial policy.
The nyei and nays resulted in the less of
tho measure by Od ayes to 0 nays. The
Vermont representatives all voted for the bill.
In England this would be what is known
there as a want of confidence vote," and
the Secretary or the Treasury would resign,
but it is not probable that Mr. MeCulIuCu
will surrender his portfolio.
The following appeal is, as it professes to
b., from an honest and truehcartcd Irish'
man, one well known to ui and esteemed
by all who know htm :
Though one of tho oldest
Irishmen now amongst jou, and I hope I can
say, one of the sinceret in his attachments to
his noire lantl.l have f jreborne to say anything
cn the question that now so absorbs your
thoughts and your hopes.
Could Irishmen feel towards .English rule as
Scotchmen do,I would deem it every way unwise
to ask separation from England. But, whether
for cr against reason, the hato of the Catholics
cf Ireland is not to be softened cannot be soft'
cned towards British rule. I could show why,
but it would lead me from my present purpose.
That purpose ia to say a word by way of dissuad.

tion, as I am positive sach attempts at present

nation, it cannot be effected in the present mJe.
On the grand error of the American people, in
the earlier stages of our civil war giving pub-
boity to their strategy and plans the Fenians
are abundantly enlarging. Whit can we hope
tor, vhn not only the causes of our grievances
aremvle public, but to the nicies of our redress
we give universal publieilj! Every reader in
England knows as well what the Fenians intend
to do as the HtaJ Centre himself. And is
Great Britain the nation to allow these schemes
to be carried out with impunity? Countrymen,
why should you follow mcn.wbo inform your foe
when and how you are to strike ? Yet, every
thing is stated, or intimated, as if publicity was
inseparable from sueoesi. If the world in sen
eral has no special right to know my secrets in
particular, on what ground has the Government
I would overthrow, a right to be informed when
and by what means I shall accon.plish that
work ? A child can find the cest of the cack
ling hen. And will not a cautious and well
anaed government like Great Britain strike fa

The nensparer called the "Iritk l'toplt

this way at kumt, and as apptars from its col
umns in its new abode, it has learned no pru
dence from thit disister. How ifr it spread
the purposes of the Fenians to the woi Id? Who
cin follow with hope men that will do so ?
il- The sebesM is viewed at home by all
men of solid sagacity as will and chimerical.
Look, as an example, at the vote in the
British Coumons on the suspension of the
Hubtat Corput in Ireland. In that Body, whiye
there are one hundred Irish members, almost
(very one of bom is a friend to i 3 y
only six protested against that suspension.
Nor they from any hope ol Feniaaism (for they
were agreed in denouncing th,t) but that such
a measure should not be adopted unaccompan
ied by one word of hope for the Irijh future.
By this suspension all thoughtful men, ia and
out of Parliament, seo no real ill to Ireland.
To all such it speale but one language "coun
terwork the schemes of foreign emissaries so free
ly mingling amongst the Catholic peasants to in.
dace them to revolt." And to whit would
such a revolt lead ! Only to a great destruction
f property, a uselets slaughter of the Catholic
people and an excuse to the Orangemen to bind
that people more rigidly for time to come under
British misrule. What friend of Ireland wishes
to see such a result ? Ah, my countrymen, let
us not ftrget the maxim of our early school-book:

XJear Free Prett:
The old watchword "All quiet
on the Fotomac," has passed away to give place
to the more surprising cry of "Fenians on the
borders." Jo where we will, we hear talk ol
the Fenian movement; the papers are filled with
it; our eminent writers speculate upon it, and
here at tho Capital.m its principal avenues, we
behold openly offered in big brazen letters
'Bondtof the Irish Republic."
We must give the Irishmen the credit of be
ing a jxil-rtGiic people, uut wnai can meir
project amount to ? The question ansct,can wo
recognito an Irish Republic in the United
States ? Can another Republic exiif within it ?
Can we suffer men ip our jurisdiction, and un
der our laws to be organized into armies, to
make war with a nation with whom we are at
peace ? Of course not. and Mr. Seward says so.
Fenianism cannot long flourish here or any
where else; but while it lasts, it is toae on sen
sations. The Legislative event of the week is tha
passage through both Houses of Senator Trum
bull's civu rights bill. As amended it pro
I. That all petscns.irreEpective of color or con
dition, born in the United States, shall be con
sidered as citizens thereof, except Indians sot
taxed, and persons subject to foreign powers.
II. That inch citizens shall have tha same
rights to make and enforce contracts, to sue and
be sued, to inherit, purchase, lease, tell, and
convey real and personal property, and to fall
and equal benefit of laws for tho security ot
puivn and property, as are enjoyed by other
III. That any person depriving any citizen of
any of the rights enumerated in the bill shall
be punished by fine and imprisonment.
IV. That a final appeal in any case that may
arise under this bill may bo taken to the Sa-
preme Court of the United States.
This is a stepiallic rijht direction toward
securing and maintaining tho greii republican
idea cf equality tefore the law. It now re
mains whether, tho measure will secure the
approval cf the President.

The " Ides of March" have come and
gone. Ibc day of fear and trembling for
our neighbors over the border is now a
thing of the past, and as yet so far as heard
from the Canadas remain provinces ot the
British Empire. Those who expected a

of Erin in our city, for whom "fifteen thou

three hundred well behaved Irishmen, with

The proceedings commenced last evening,
when a preliminary meeting was held in the

urged his hearers to invct some of their mo

opportunity for the purchase of which would

The day to-day opened brightly, with a
cooler air than wc Lave bad for a week past.
The Irishmen with their green ribbons
began to congregate In our streets, early in
the forenoon ; but there were no very num

lux Air rat at Tin Poor Hocsi. The
examination in the case of the State against
Mr. Miller, the keeper of the city poor
bouse, for assault on Mrs. Jane Morrissy,
took place yesterday, at the Poor house,
before Justice llollenbcck, and resulted in
the discharge of the respondent

throat and choked her (evenly, put her out

Mas. Mart Mittrs, aa Inmate of the Poor-

Miller with a stick , that witness undertook to

choked off Mrt Morrissy and put her out cf

not see. Mrs Morrissy was very violent and
used prctane language.

by the remark that he little thought on remov

so many rtspectable gentlemen would so toon be

excited. He saw Mrs Morrissy lift her hand
with the stick in it, as if to strike Mrs Miller;
but did not see her strike her. Mr Miller chok

but be thought "the felt it" He did not see

Me. Tait, for the defence, argued that Mrs.

having come there without a proper permit from
the pootmaster; that Mrs Miller was justified in
putting her and her property oat, by force it
necessary; that Mrs Morrissy first assaulted Mrs
Miller, and that .Mr. .Miller did no more tnan
he ought to do, in protecting bis wife and eject
ing the Irishwoman.
Me. E.NGLEJBT, for the State, maintained
that the woman having once been properly ad-
mittel by order of the Poonnastcr, then leaving
temporarily to and work, returning in good
faith, and having been admitted by Mrs. Miller
was lawfully an inmate ot the roornoase ; that
on leaving she was entitled to all her property ;
that she had a right to prevent her bundle from
being thrown out into the mud ; that the weight
of testimony showed that she did not begin the
use of violence ; and mat nouung save immi
nent danger to life or property, could justify
Mr. Miller in such violence upon a woman, at
he used in the severe choking, and the kicking
down the steps, as to which the complaionant't
testimony was uncontradicted.

kicking of the woman down the steps, after the

not of consequence enough to be alluded to.
We have only to add, that
we trust this
decision is not to bo taken as justifying any
amount of personal abuse, if an inmate oi
tho Poorhouso be slow in obeying orders.
Wc take it that those in charge, are placed
there to exercise kind and forbearing treat
