the iucidents of his life are here given,

Alexander Hamiltott was born in
eb. West indies i 1757. His father
was a Scotchman and his mother of
liuguenot extraction. At twelve lie
was a clerk in a mercantile house,
when he wrote, "I would willingly
risk my life, but not my character, to
exalt my station." One year later,
Hamilton was the responsible head of
agreat commercial 'stablishment, con
trolling the counting room, making
distant ventures and malitaIning its
credit. Such was his promise that at
fifteen he was sent to the United
States, then the colonies, for a collegi
ate education. Is proposition to the
President of Princeton to pass through
the course as fa t as he could master
It, without regard to the regular perilod
of time, was rejected, and he entered
Colun.bia College, New York. The
Impending crisis with England was tihe
occasion ofn a monster inass-nieting iti
'New York City. When the orators
had closed their passionate appeals a
slender lad of seventeen ascended Ihe
platform. Curiosity soon gave plael
'to admiration, and ad mil ration to
amazement and enastsic-Ai' appluhise
as tle boy proceeded. y .i-s elo
quence and logic, New York was per
suaded to send a delegat ion to the
Continental Congress. Nan.y. able
stateslen oppoe(l tie m-esamle, but
they were completely overwhlimed by
anonymous pamiphlletsi wvhi.-h- wemiv
ascribed to John Jay the bright est in
tellect of the colony. When it was
discovered that their author was a hov
of eighteen, H maumion becaie the
cynosure of all eyes. Yet lie eanlimd
a mob that was on tic point, of atssail
ing the submissioniists. The war enme.
Hamilton equippiCd a coanlINy, and at
the nge of nineteen became its cnpta in.
During the gloomy retreat. through
New Jersey a veterani oflicer noticed a
company "which was i iodel or dis
cipline; its captain a mere boy', wit h
small, slender and delicate frtame, who,
with cocked hat pulled down over his
eyes, and apparenstly lost in tlhouglit,
marched beside a cannion, patting it
every now and then as it' it. were a
favorite horse or a pet plaything,'" and
was surprised when'u told it was the
iamous Hamilton. But the y
omneer neui the .is'uush at bay wi
the American army crossed the Rari
tan, and atPrinceton and Trenton his
company won renown and lef't up)on
the field three-fourths of their number.
From the line, with its opportunities
for distinction and promotion, the
necessities of the Commander in-Chief
drafted Hamilton into his .military
family, and at twenty ho became th'e
confidential aid of Washington. Here
hie was of incalculable service in 'e
dlueing the vast and complicated sys
temi involved in the military and po0
hitical management of the new peoplle.
At thme siege of Yorktown, Hamilton,
at his own request, led the for'lor'n
hope that vanquished Cornwallis and
brought peace to the United States.
Hie was then not twenty-four.
The first convention after the Revo-.
Jution wvas a failure, but Its address,
'wrItten by Uanmiltons, made the second
a success. A complete system of gov
ernment was presentcd by himi to the
convention. When the Constitution
was adloptedl New York, led by her
wvar governor, Clinton, ref'used to
ratify it, but liamiltoni overcame aln
overwhelmiing mnajor'ity and carried
the ratification t hrouglh. Hamnil'ton
then devoted his attention to prlivate
affair's, having already p)repared him
self for the law ini three mnonths, and1
almOst at once having risen to the
head of his pr'ofessioni. At the age of
thirty-two, upon the call of' Washing
toln, lie became first Secretary ot' the
Treasuryv. The ne0w government had
no0 credit anid was hle~lssly bankr'upt,
coWmerce was dlest roved and trade
paralyzed, lie cr'eatedl a system ot'
flinancee that at once piced thte govern
mient upon its feet, anld thus effeceted
one of the greatest achievemsents of' his
age. Later 0on, whens threatened with
a wvar' with France, WailhingI~tonlci el('d
Hamilton to the 'ommand~sit or' thle arimv.

A N Vr BANKU$PT LAW.
The Proposed Measue Intended to Furnish
all the Bleneote of the Old Law, Wivthout
Some months ago Hou. John Low
ell, United States Circuit Judge of the
Districts embracing Maine, Massachu
setts, Rhode Island and New laimip
shire, was solicited by the Board of
Trade of Boston and other mercantile
assoe!tions to frame a bill for the es
tablishment of a uniform system of
bankruptcy in the United States.
With coiimendable dillirence the re
qTest was complied witl, and Judge
oLowell presented the draft of a bill
for the consideration of Congress,
which his long experience on the
bench had convinced him was a great
improvement upon the law of bank
ruptcy which has recently been re
pealCl. Copies of the proposed law
were sent by a committee of mier
chants to commercial associ!t1ons,
registers in bankruptcy and many
others interested in the subject, with
a request for their critielsns. The
answers received were generally fa
'orable to the plan of the proposed
bill, but niany valuable suggestions
were made as to niatters of detail. and
these have been Incorporated in the
text of a new bill, which will be
brought forward at the next session
of Congress. In drawing up the
presont bill, the language of the old
law has beei followed as ftr as practi
cable, in order that use night be made

The 26th section provided that tile
att achments and transmissions made
ill secret ay be availed of w .ithi
three m1onlths1 alter tey haive become
publlic by record, and so forthI. The
cireditor hadl power to lput a dlebtor
iinto bankrulptcy, is mlet by requlirinlg
that. al. least three should join1 in . the
petitioni when thlere are more than
twelve creditors in all.
SctionsB 38 iad 39 provide that the
choice of ani assignee shall be made by
the creditors, and that every assigne'e
shall give a bond, and that small credi
tors wh'Io are to be paid in full shall
have no v'ote in such elcectiona. If a
judgment creditor has seiz.ed the prop
erl y, his lien will 1be dissolved, and tihe
prop~erty or the monecy in the shaeritU's
hlands shall belong to the assignee;
providled, hlowever, all tihe creditors'
cost shall be palid out of it. Section
44, inl the case of traders, priovides for|
the exemplltion of thleir proplerty fromi
the operation of bankruptcy upon01 the
tooting of the State lawis to the exteint
of $500, anld the State laws are left in
full operation as to persons wiho are
inot traders. Under' the bill as at
present proposed, thle powers of as
signees are the samle as under the 01(1
law, anvd provable debts are substan
tially the same. Privileged dlebts are
thme same as undl~er the old law, except

Compositionl is put upon anl enltirely I

of both is the same ; niamely, to enlable

satlithtion of his creditors without
the expen1se anld delay of p~roceedin~gs 1
of' the0 most formnal chlaracter, and h
thereby to save the good will of his
business, wivle lie gives his ereditor's t
as muchl as they cou1(lb ossibly obtain I
under the delays of bankrupt'cy. Tro -t
guard the rightls of creditors, it is pro.
vided that at least oneC-third of the
composition is to be paid in cash, andt I
that tihe rest shiould be fllly and aim- I
ly securced to tile satisfaction of the
creditors and1( thle court ; andt wihenl this
is alccomiplishecd, the debtor assumnes
his fll rights as a trader, withoutC

reCgualar discharuge as if he had gone

This Scott county pigeon roost Is
known in the history of Indiana as the
sceno of a terrible massacre. In Sep
ember, 1812 a small colony of Iardy
Aioneers had a .settlement near tie
oost. It was the most westerly set
lement in that direction front the falls
>W the Ohio. On the evening of that
lay lthe settlers were attacked by a
gang of roving Pottawatotnies, out on
ee warpath, and twenty-foui' of them,
nostly women and children, niassa
.red, their bodies being horribly man
rled and afterwards partially burned
n their cabins, which were' fired by
le savages. But 'five of the settlers
seaed-two of the family of John

*wo small children, which she carried
it het arms and secreted in a sink-hole
inill the Indians land left the scene of
heir bloody work, when she again
ook them in her arms and fled to the
tearest settlement six miles away.
The scenes at this pigeon roost dur
ng the roosting season are exciting
eyond description. Sportsmen visit
he place rom all parte of the State,
tied fron Kentucky and Ohio. The
mnaters provide themselves with torch
)s, shot guns, long poles and sacks to
:ontain the birds, and thus equipped
,o to the work of slaughter. Thous
mnds are killed every night. The
yirds roost as low down as the limbs
>f the trees will permit, and It is upon
hose the polcs are used. The pigeons
tre literally mowed down. The scene
a bedlainic. In such immense num
eas do the birds gather upon the trees
hat the limbs are broken down, and
here is a constant clatter of these
racking, falling limbs, the whir of
wvings as the birds rise and fly to the
text. tree and crowd off other flocks or
ittempt to alight upon them. Th rat,
l of guns, the flashing of torches,
tid the shouts of the butchers-for
tportsmen they can not be properly
mlled-all combine to make the place
vividly wild and exciting. With the
norning come droves of hogs to fat

et scattered over the woods by the
3xcited hunters, who do not always
4t the work of slaughter when their
acs are filled.
At intervals of many years the
)igreons chlanage their roosting place,
xut tley do nt1t select a new locality
very far away from (lie old one. A!
7ew nights ago-since the Presidential
flection--the pigeons made a chunge.

tave been a pigeon roost for over
