On the right side
He was more unfortunate than criminal;
An accomplished man and a gallant officer.
He died universally esteemed and universally re
gretted. Alexander Hamilton.
"Now let me recall to you the way
it all came about,'Mr. Field centinued:
"When Dean Stanley was stopping at
my house we took a ride with a view
o find the spot where Major Andre
wis executed. It took us abut three
hours to find the nlace. t laot we
came across a man 91 years ld, who
said he knew the place, because he
remembered when the remains were
taken up and removed to "Westminster
Abbey. He said also that his mother
saw the execution. Both the Dean
and mvself were certain that we had
found the spot, and we both .agreed
that the location oTsuch an interesting
historical event -ought not to be left to
oblivion. So I said 1 would buy the
land if he would write the inscription.
Now, there is his inscription, and if
"anyone chooses to quarrel" with him
about it I have no objection. There
is a quotation from Virgil also, and
one from Fenimore Cooper, and one
from George Washington. If an' one
chooses to quarrel with George Wash
ington I don't care. "There is what he
sa?d about the spy, and there is what
Alexander Hamilton said. People
may quarrel with Alexander Hamilton
nbont' it if they likc. I've bonsht the
land, and C'vc gt -die deed in my
jiocket, and I'm gomg to have a stone
ilaced thej with that inscription. I
bought the tfliole farm of six acres.
That is more than 1 wanted, but I had
to buv it toiiet the other, and I thought
the historical interest made it wuith
"Will there be a monument placed
"Oh, no; only a granite slab after
Mime design which I am to select. It
will be raised a little from the ground
io .keep off the water and debnus.
There is a man who owns a granite
-quarry up near there and 1 told him
to get me out a design fur the slab.
He gave me one, but 1 did not like it.
As soon as I 'decide upon that the
stone will be inscribed and placed in
"You were not deterred by the
many communications on the subject
in the newspapers?"
"No; we had some fun over it, and
no harm was done, tit is only a his
torical matter, you see. That's the
whole of it only a historical matter.
Why, my friend, if they will show me
the -spot where Satan was executed I
would put a stone there to mark it,
because that would be a historical

A poor woman, who was for nine

hospital for diseases of the skin, in
London, suffering from leprosy, in its
jaost horrid form, died on the 29th of

by no means extinct in Europe, and
it forcibly illustrates the necessity for
