C. The civil sorvlco of tho government

S. S. Marshall, in regard to tho duty of

affairs. Tho prevailing spirit of Judge
Marshall's letter is a deslro that
tho domocrncy may sco clearly
nnd tako that courso which
tbo best interests of tho country rcquiro at

convention, Mr. Marshall says:

MR. SUMMER'S GREAT SPEECH.
1 ho great speech mudo in tho eonato of
tho United States last Friday, by Senntor
Sumner, should bo read by
every citizen of tho republic,
and its statement of facts thought

been mado in tho United States n speech
of tho denp slgniflcunco of this-one, nnd
thero has'beon mado in no other country,
in ancient or modern times, so severe a
phllllpio against a ruler. It Is but a
statement of unadorned facts, and yet it
convicts Gen. Grant of crimes ngolnst tho
public word, of threats against tbo iiiititu

Gordon Bennett. Tho following kkotch
of his life wo find in nn oxchango:
Jamos Gordon Bennett, tho founder of
tho Now York 'Herald,' was born about tho
year 1800. Ufa puronts wero French
Catholics who lived in Scotland. In 1810
ho left Scotland for Amorlca, with Frank
lin in his mind, Napoleon In his hoart nnd
nothing in his pockets. In Boston ho
would havo starved If ho had not found a
shilling on tho common. Tbouch ho ob
tained employment in u book store; ho
ipont bis leisure hours rambling about
Concord and Bunker Hill, and in writing
poetry, In 1623, Bennett went to Charles
ton, South Carolina, to work for tbo
'Courior' of that city, as tho translator of
South American revolutionary nows. It
scorns that the Catholic seminary had
taught him Spanish. For the 'Courier' ho
used to sail out to sea to board vchcIs for
fresh news, a fact which ho afterward on
tho 'Herald' did woll (o remember. In a
year ho was In New. York wanting to
tench school, but ccttlns no pupils.
Whereupon ho began to lecturo In tho
Fulton Street Dutch Church on political
economy, but soon found that ho must earn
his bread by hack-wrillng fur the nows
pdpors and especially for Uio 'National
Advocate,' tho democratic organ. In
1825 ho purchased tho 'Sunday Advocate,'
on credit, but ho shortly restored It to tho
original owner. Ho reported trials, wroto
dramatic criticisms and began to bo known
When ho was twenty-eight years old Ben
nott showed remarkable talent for journal
ism. It was whilo ho was Washington
correspondent of the New York 'En
quirer.' On his return to New.York Ben
nett suggested to Webb tho union of tho
'Courier' with tho 'Enquirer.' In 1832 he
left Webb bccauio tho paper would no
longer support Jackson. Ho started tho
'Globe' nnd it lived only thirty days.
Then ho invested in tho 'Pennsylvania
and advocated tho measures of the demo
In New York, in 1833, tho 'Sun,' a one
bent paper had appeared, to be followed In
1834, by another one-cent paper, tho
Transcript,' both of them scholarly, plod
ding journals. Bennett, with tho aid of
two young printers, on tho Cth of May,
1835, published tho first, number of the
third one-cent popor, tho Now York 'Her
ald.' Then bcijan tho second part of his
career. His days of sentlmontnlism and
party fidelity wero gono by. Ho was
thlrty-flvo years old ; ho had flvo hundred
dollars ; his offico was a cellar in Wall
street; his desk, counter and folding
board wero a plank resting on two empty
barrels. Bennett was sarcastic rather than
hnmurous, nnd, strange to say, ho did not
mean to bo sarcastic and ho did mean to
oko. Ho was somotimo witty and fre
quently poetical ; that is, he had n certain
courteous urnco that is always noetrv.
Sometimes ho showed tho brusauo pic-
turciquoncss of Scott ; frequently tho gro-
tesquo fancy or Byron. Tho success of
tho 'Herald,' however, was assured. Those
who took offunso at it bought it. Person
ally ho was an extremely shy and mod-
st man: publicly ho said. "Wo havo
never been in n minority, and wo nover
shall bo." Ho has kept his word. Ho
concentrated his abilities on always gvlng
tho best report of tno largest affair, In
good typo and on good paper. "What in
tcrcsts everybody," was his motto.
Of tho history of tho ' Herald ' from 1835
until now wo havo llttlo materials; nor
havo wo much to say. It has grown into
n circulation sixty to eighty thousund
copies u day.
Bennett for many years displayed n
journal which gave a groat deal ofminuto,
light nnd cheerful news. Ho committed
errors. His very sentitnonts wero audn
cions. His manner was kind nnd courto-
ous, his humor was always unrufllcd. Ho
would tako off his hat, with a bland
smile, to his smallest cnomy;nnd thero
nro men still alive who remember his get
ting struck on tho head with n cane, and
hearing him say, as they tenderly wiped
tho blood from his whito hair, that that
was not tho first timo his lifo had been
saved by tho direct interposition of God.
Ho detnrmincd to havo powor, but no man
set so littlo vnluo on what it would bring.
Yiicnmon charged him wishing to sco
tho American flag trniisd in tho mud, ho
ndvocotcd tho policy of Lincoln, and when
tho gruteful president offered him tho
mission to I'innce, ho refused it. Ho had
but ono idea tho ' Horold. '
tho streets have bcon crowded with tbo
bravo and fair. Every afternoon, between
3 nnd 6 p.m., Fourth and Fifth streets
hnvo prcsentod an array of fashion nnd
beauty that cannot bo eurpassed anywhere
in the Union. Amusements havo been
lull, nnd notwithstanding but ono theater
has hcen open, (Rankin's), that but poorly
patronized, Next week, Do Bar's opens
with tho " Georgia Minstrels"- (sufo en
ough niggers) and wo predict in ndvnnco
that thny will hot draw worth a cant. Tho
counterfeit is always moro successful wltli
tho public than tbo real. Tho Olympic
will also open with tho Black Crook com
binations we canlo near writing abomiua-
Hons which will run through tho week.
Tho most frequented places of amusement
at tbo present timo aro tho beer garden,
Uhrig's Cave, Otahleln's, tho Appollo Gar
den and others, whero a tnngnlllccnt or
chestra discourses delicious music every
night. Theso evening concert nro get
ting to bo quite fashlonablu and aro woll
attended by tho bettor class of Americans
as well at Uormans. Tha bos't of order
rolgns, and all enjoy tbomsolvas to their
heart's content. At a meeting of mil road
kings in tho city tho past wcok, it was ro-
solvcd to fully dccldo on tho tunnel from
Third street westward, within tho noxt
thirty days. Should It bo adversely, tho
directors of tbo bridgo will build tho
tunnel themselves, nnd at their own ox-
pense. Tbo approahes Jto tho bridgo havo
been condemned and tho buildings will
soon be torn down from Third street to
Fourth, so that Ticknor & Co's clothing
establishment on Fourth and Washington
avcnuowillbo tho first building, met in
crossing over tho bridgo from the cast
side. Tho trial or Dr. Berkley which wns
postponed for a fortnight will bo on again
next week. So far, public opinion Is
about equally divided. Wo say, "let
justico be'dono though tho Heavens fall.''

Tho New York 'Herald,' in announcing
tho death of Mr. Bonnett, says four years
ago Mr. Bunnctt entirely withdrew from

but nlthough feeble in frame, his general
health lmil been remarkably good, whilo
his finu intellect remained unlmpuircd,nnd
Ids Interest in tho events of tho duy con
tinued unnbutcd up to tho moment of his
fiitnl illness. About half past flvo o'clock
lust Saturday afternoon Mr. Bennett suf
fered n slight convulslvo a'.tack, accom
panied by epileptic symtoms; but not
sufficiently marked or violent to excito
apprehension of immcdiato danger. At
half-past ono o'clock Inst Sunday morning
tho attack was repeated with great severity.
From that timo tho end becatno evident,
nlthough In constant nttendnnco of Drs.
Ccccarinc, Hammond and Lusk insured
tho exhaustion oi all within thu reach of
human effort tn avert tho fatul result. On
Tuesday last, at tho request of Mr. Bennett,
Archbishop McClosky visited his bedside
nnd ndmlnlttered to him tho sacraments of
tho church. When tho last hour hnd ar
rived, ho sank to sleep in death calmly
and peacefully, and his soul passud away
without n struggle. Mr. Dormctt wns in
tho 77th year of his ago.
Dr. Chamiiers beautifully says: "The
littlo that I havo scon in tho world nnd
know of tho history of mankind, teaches
me to look upon their errors in sorrow,
and not in nngcr. When I tako tho his
tory of ono hcaafcthat has sinned and suffer

brief puliutlons of joy; tho tears of re
gret; tho feebleness of purposo; tha scorn
of tho world that has littlo chutity ; tho
desolation of tho sanctury, nnd threaten
ing voices within; health gone; hnppincts
