"Oh, that mino enemy would write a
book " s > v.i ?te lob. Admiral Samp
son add rossid a letter to Secretary of
the Navy Long, in which he advised
against tho appointment tootlleo of sea
faring men who woe not graduates ol
Annapolis. 1 he Admiral assigns as a
reason that young men without liberal
advantage-, are unfitted for the social
duties which as officers, they would be
called upon to discharge and particu
larly otlieers of the navy ought to be of
high cult : s they are called upon to ro
pre-ent the country abroad and in the
most cultivated circles. The letter was
road in congress and Senator Allen, of
Nebraska, very properly denounced tho
letter and instanced that the young
man who is seeking promotion is better
bred than tho Admiral himself who
had had the advantage of an education
at the great, naval academy, Annapolis,
at the expense of tho government.
There is no qtiosllon that the Admiral
deserved the awful rebuke adminis
tered by tho Senator whether the Ad
miral had come from the humblest
walks of life or the primrose path of
dalliance and leisure. In tho debate it
transpired that Sampson himself was
tho son of a poor Irishman and was bred
to menial Services in Irs youth. Such
men as Son itor Allen will see to it, we
trust, not wit hstands g trusts and pluto
cracy in this country that the poor
boy shall have an equal chance with
the wealthiest stripling. "Honor and
shame from no condition rise, Act. well
your part, there all the honor lies."
Anyone well acquainted with history
will readdy recall that some of tho
most accomplished men and Women,the
most elegant in their manners and most
winning in address have come from the

not bO traced. There are as many
clowns and awkward rustics in man
ners born among the aristocracy as
reared among the p'alnest people.
