A PAGE OF HISTORY.
Passing events arc tin important edu
cating force to attentive minds. Perhaps
they educate us more than all things else*,
for \vc cannot easily get off our lesson for
a single day; and, once in a generation,
occttr electric events which rouse and in
form the. minds of whole nations nt once.
What creature in tlto United States so
unlcachubly dull as to have been no
more of a human being in I860 than he
was in 1<S(>1 ! Rut in all recent history
I know of no example more striking of
the greater good that results from great
evil, than the Stump Act agitation of
17(11 to 1706; which began tin' decoloni
zation?the independent public life?of
North America. It so chanced that
Thomas Jefferson, then a .-Indent at law
at Willianisburg, Virginia, was in the
thick of-the events at the time. It was
the Stump Act which changed old Coke's
comments on Magna Charta from dead
law into living gospel; and what the
stamp .act did for delicts m's intnd, it did
for the mind of his country. It convert
ed the fundamental principles of right
into the familiar thing? of daily speech,
ami infused the essenco of old Coke into
a million minds' that never heard his
name. lie had watched with interest, as
he himself records, the series of events by
which imperial Chatham had given
Great Britain her opportunity of empire
by making her supreme in North Ameri
ca; and ho was now to follow, with in
terest more intense and more intelligent,
the events by which tut ignorant king
und a corrupt ruling class lliruw Eng
land's magnificent clmuce away, and
caused her to lapse into r.n island again."
His friend, Patrick Henry, had been
coming and going during these student
years; dropping in when (ho General
Court met in the autumn, und riding
homeward, with a book or two ot Jcll'er
son's in his saddle-bags, when the court
adjourned over till the spring; then re
turning with the hooks unread. The
wondrous eloquence which ho had dis
played in the Parsons case in December,
1708, docs not seem to have been gene
rally 'known in \\rilHamsburg in. 1704;
for he moved about the streets ami public
places unrecognized, though not unmark
ed. It would not have been extraordi
nary if oqr young student had been a
little ashamed of his oddity of a guest
as they walked together towards the cap
itol, at the time when the young ladies
were abroad?Sukcy Potter, Betsy Moore,
Judy Burwcll, and the rest?for Henry's
dress was coarse, worn, and ? countrified,
and he walked with such an air of
thoughtless unconcern, that he was taken
by some for an idiot. But he had a cause
to plead that winter; and when he sat
down he had become "Mr. Henry" to all
\ViJjliamsburg. You will observe in the
memorials of old Virginia, Ironi 170.1 to
ItfOO, that, ?whoover else may bo named
without a prefix of honor, this "first-born
Demosthenes," as Byron styled him, is
generally Mr. .Henry, To Washington,
to Jefferson, to Madison, .io all that cir
cle of eminent men he ever remained "Mr.
Henry." On that day in 1704 ho gave
such an ?exhibition of his power, that
during the next session of the House of
Burgesses a vacancy was made for him,
and he was elected to a seat. The up
country yocmcn> whoso idol he had be
come, gladly gave their voles to such a.
man, whep the stamp act was expected
to be a topic of debate.
. And so, in May, 170?, the new mem
ber was in Williamsburg to take his seal,
a guest again of hjrt youug friend Jeffer
son. He sat, day after day, waiting for
some of the older members to open the
subject. But iio one seemed to know
just what to do. A year before the house
IumI .r.-utlv denied the. right of i'arlin
incnt to tax the colonies, and tofVly re
monstrated agaim t the threatened meas
ure; but as the act had been passed in
spite of their objection-:, what more could
a loyal colony do? No one ? bought of
formal resistance, and remonstrance had
failed. What else? What next? How
ever frequently the two friends may have
conversed upon the perplexity, it was
Patrick Henry to ho?-to use his own
words?"alone, unadvised, and unassist
ed," hit upon the proper expedient.
Only three days of the session remain
ed. On 'tho blank leaf of an old "Coke
lipon Lytllotoh"?perhaps Jeftorsoii's
own copy?the new member wrote his
celebrated five resolutions, of this pur
port: We, Englishmen living in Ameri
ca, have all the rights ot Englishmen
living in England; the chief of which is,
that wc can only be taxed by our own
icprecentativcs, and any attempt to t?x
us otherwise menaces British liberty on
both continents. In all probability,
,Jcl]crsoii knew that something of the
kind was intended on thai- memorable
day, for he was present in the house.
There was no gallery then, nor any other
provision for spectators; but there could
be no objection to the friends and rela
tives of many members standing in the
doorway between the lobby and the cham
ber; and there ho took his stand. Ho
saw his tall, gaunt, ccnrscly-attirc.d guest
rise, in his awkward way,and break with
stammering tongue the silence which had
brooded over the loudest debates, as week
after week of the session had passed, He
observed, and felt loo, the thrill which
ran through the house at the mere intro
duction of a subject with which every
mind was surcharged, und marked the
rising tide of reeling as the reading of the
resolutions went on, until the climax of
audacity was reached in the bust clause of
the last. How -moderate, how tame the
word-seem to us! "Every attempt to
invest such power (of taxation), in any
person or persons w hatsoever, other than
the General Assembly aforesaid, has a
manifest tendency lo destroy British and
American freedom.Ravishing words
to the Whig members from Albeinarlo'
and the other western counties. Sound as
old Coke himself, in flic judgment of our
spell-bound listener i? the doorway.
Words of fearful import to the Tory lords
ol'the eastern counties. N. t approved,
yet, by George Wythe, nor by Peyton
Uniulolph, whom the student held in so
When the reading was finished, he
heard Ins friend utter the opening sen
tences of his speech, with fultccing tongue,
as ustinl, and giving little promise of the
strains that were to follow. But it was
the nature of this great genius, as of all
genius, to rise to the occasion. Soon
i Jefferson saw him stand erect, nnd, h wirtg
1 ing free of all impediments, launch into
the tide of his oration, every eye capti
va*ed by the largo and sweeping grace of
his gesticulations; every car charmed
with the swelling music of his voice; every
mind thrilled or stung by the vivid epi
grnms inti which he condensed his opin
ions. He never had a, listener so formed
to be held captive by him as the student
at the lobby' door, who, as u boy, had
found tho oratory of an Indian chief so
Impressive! and could not now resist a
slurring translation of Ossian'a majestic
phrase.-'. Alter the lapse of fifty-nine
year.-:, he still spoke of the great day with
enthusiasm, and described anew the clos
ing moment of Henry's speech, when the
orator, interrupted by cries of treason,
uttered the well known words of defiance,
"If this be treason', make the most of it!"
The debate which followed Mr. Henry's
openttig speech was, hs Jefferson has re
corded, "most bloody." It is impossible
for n reader Of this generation to conceive
the mixhirc'of fondness, pride, and ven
eration with which those colonists regard
ed the mother country, its Parliament
and Icing, its church und its literature,
'and nil the glorious names and events of
its history. Wfliig as Jefferson was by
nature and conviction, he could not give
up ICngiand as long as there was any
hope Vif ft just union with her. What,
then, must have been the 'feelings of the
Tories of the house?Tories by nature
and by party?upon hearing this yeoman
from the west speak oftho natural rights
of man in tho spirit ef Sidney, and use
language in reference to the king which
sounded to them like the prelude, to an
assassin's stub'; They had to make a
stand, too, for their position as leaders .of
tho house, unquestioned "for a century.
To mutter of the resolutions no one ob
jected. 'All that Wytiie, l*e ndleUvu,
Bland and Peyton Randolph eo.uhl urge
against them was, that they, were unbe
coming rind tuinecossary. The house bad
alrciidy renionstrated without effect, nnd
it bceniue n loyal people to submit. "Tor1
r6nts ol sublime eloquence" from Patrick
Henry, its JcffcrTsoh ob.-.crves, swept tiway
their arguments, and the resolutions were
carricd^tho last one, however, by only a
single voice. Standing in the doorway,
the student watched the taking of the
vote on the h\st resolution, upon which
the contest had been hottest. When the
result had been declared, Peyton Ran
dolph, the king's attorney general, brush
ed past him, saying, as ho entered the
lobby, "By 'J?d, I would have given five
hundred guineas for a single vole!"
Doubtless, the young gentleman went
home exulting. Patrick Henry, unused
to the artifices of legislation, and always
impatient of detail, supposing now that
tho. work for winch lie had come to Wil
liamsburg' was done, mounted that very
evening nnd rode awi-y Jefferson, per
haps, was not. sure of ih^; f r the. next
morning, some time before the hour of
meeting, he was again at the capiiol, and
in the Burgesses' chamber. His uncle;
Colonel Peter Randolph? otto oftho Tory
members camo in, aud sitting down at
the clerk's table, began to turn ovei the
journals of the. house. He hail a dim
recollection, ho said,of a resolution many
years ago, having been expunged! Jle
was trying to find the record of the trans
action. Ho wanted a precedent. The
student of law looked over his ehouldcr,
as ho turned tho leaves; a group of mem
bers standing near, in trepidation at the
thought of yesterday's doings. Tho house
bell rang, tho house convened; tho student
resumed his .stand in the doorway'. A
motion was made to expunge the bistres
ulution of yesterday's scries.; and, in the
absence of tho mighty orator whose dp
quenee had yesterday made the dull in
telligent and tho timid brave, the mo
tion was enri ied, and tho resolution was

The Horse and t e Voterninary Ait
As the breed of horses improves -o will
their value increase. Under thesu cir-.
cumstances it is necessary that a knowl
edge of the disease to which the. horse is
liable should be a subject of interest to
their owners.- If We uro to consider Uns
horse subject to the same disease or lienr.
ly so as the human, why is it not as neces
sary to possess a knowledge of veterinary
mutcria mcdica as human medicine? We
contend as veterinary surgeons that the
same elements are necessary to the ex"
istenee of the horse as that id man ; th t
the circulation of the blood is a purely
physical phenomenon and governed by
the laws of hydraulics; that respiration
in the horse is a combination of physical
and chemical actions; that digestion is a
function partly mechanical und partly
chemical; tlmt muscular motion, includ
ing locomotion, is essentially in the horse
a mechanical action.
Secretion is a function under the phys
ical laws of endosmose and of chemical
action. Absorption belongs to* the do
main of physics, calorification to chemis
try. Thus we perceive that the phenom
ena of the vitality of the horse are con
trolled by the same forces that govern
human vitality. If then we admit ihe
above, why is it not as essentially neces
sary that a veterinarian should possess a
scientific knowledge of the animal
economy, to qualify him to- treat the
disease of'ihe hhrse as the human surgeon
his patient? I think it requires more
profound study. Wc have a speechless
animal to treat, and our diagnosis must
be from the symptoms '?hieb by the nat
ural instinct of the animal art- present
ed, und it is a knowledge of tho-e symp
toms that enables the veterinarian to ac
quire skill in pronouncing this or that
organ to be the seat of disease, and the
disease itself to he of this or that nature.
Hut the treatment of the diseases of horses
must be prompt and efficacious, for when
wc consider that the circulation is not
more than from thirty-five to forty beats
per minute, respiration from five to ten
per minute, digestion also tardy, and that
the bowels cannot be attained in less than
ten or twoivo hours, wc might infer that
disease would also be slow in it.s progress.
It is not so. I have known lung fever to
ruh its course u\ sixteen hours, it'severe
case, of colic in twelve hours, and inflam
mation of the bowel* iii the same time.
This shows the necessity of a scientific
knowledge of the diseases of the horse,
that th<* proper remedies may be employ
ed in .proper doses and at the proper
If the owners of valuable horses would
reflect for a moment on the necessity of
understanding the na lire and treatment
of disease, we should not hear of so many
of our valuable animals being lost by the
treatment of persons having no preten
tion whatever?indeed possessing none?
to medical science. In this hit-or-misa
manner of proceeding some valuable dis
coveries have been made, but the failures
would exhibit a picture that the pretender
himself would look upon with remorse.
Time, however, will dtspeltlie gloom,ami
as veterinary science progresses, the
'owners of valuable horses will ace that
superiority in knowledge is the \e.erinu
rinn's effective vrc$|hu?, bringing him be
fore the public not merely ns a practical
but Wi a scientific practitioner.1
