Judgo Grcslintn owns n linudsoiuo
farm, neat IiuUnnnpolis, ami is novor
so Jiappy a when ho is thcro nttond
ing la things. It in queer, snvfl tho
Chicago Herald, how this lovo of
rntm-llfo stays with successful farm
hoi union through nil tiiolr yoars of
nctivity in public or metropolitan
Holds and reappears In middles ago or
advanced life in tho purchases of
picjty acies In soino favorite spot. I
couUl mention. bcores of Chicago men
who own fnrniH In Illinois, Michigan,
Indiana or 'Wisconsin, and, almost
without'Oxecption, thoy scorn to tako
more prldo in tlicir farms than in
their business or profession. Judgo
flrcshnm is not only fond of his farm,
hut he is particulaily fond of pigs,
and, being a nativo of that part of
Indiana which projects Into tho laud
dt tobarco, whisky, 811111108111035 and
Minrp-noswi pigs, tho Judge's Ideal
hog is ono whoso noso Js not too
slioit nor his back too broad.
The Judge was In Snrlngllcld liold
ing court a few months ago, and tho
genial Colonel Wiggins of tho i.e.land.
took him out to sco tho famous I.cluud
fm in. Of course tho Ju duo wns. dr..

him by a Southern friend. Jmlgo
Cireslinm cast such wistful oyes at
these long-nosed fellows tliat Colonel
Wiggins made up a box of them ai)d
spnt them over to tho Indiana farm.
You can no inoro wean a man born
along tho Ohio lliver from his lovo for

you can tear out of him his lovo for
noises, and if Colonel Wiggins dinps
at the Whlto House next year ho ox
pecU to sit down before a savory dHh
of liver and bacon.
One of tho most interesting features i
of the "Walto funeral service observa
ble from tho gallery of tho IIqusq of
r.cpio?onta,tlvos tho other day, says
the HWi Washington correspond
ent, was tho way soino great men
pray .and tho fact that some great
men do not pray at all. When-tho
prayer was announced the President
net- tho examplo to his Cabinet by
dropping his head until tho bridgo of
his noso rested on tho brim of his silk
hat, which bo liuld in his right hand.

his knee. Seorotary tfairchild, who
looked exceedingly short, placed be
tween twoBUch tall men as llaynrd

his eyes almost closed, but ho fol
lowed tho service very closely aifil
was ready with tho responses. Secre
tary Endicott inclined, his, head
slightly, raising his left ho,nd to
support It. Secretary Whitnoy'n loft
hand was raised to his Chin, but his
head .was not inclined, and there was
no cvideneothnt ho was participating
in tho prayer. Mr. Garland raised
his loft lfaiurto his face and played
ncok-'ai-boo between tho lingers of his
black cotton . gloves. Vilas nnd
Dickinson reverently inclined their
heads, and Mv. Vilas made an. ollort
to follow- the service, but his tongue
tripjied and ho finally stopped. Sen
ator Tuvarts was nervous during tliO

played a tattooovor his faco. Senator

Senator Ttansom was uneasy, iro
rested -his forehead first pn ono liand
and then on the other and thonou

little black-headed cane in his hand,
and during tho. prayer he hold it up

Says a Washington letter in the

now a dangerous ilval in tho "yellow

correspondent, of the New York

applicants for small loans. Among"
tho most wealthy men of the Senato
is Ihown of Georgia, whose patriarchal
beard nnd air of solemnity mako him
a particular target for tho impecu

ono of thq applicants on his generosity
is something liko this: Across tho
hotel table from tho Senator sat a
sad-oyed woman boarder wliohadonco

whom adversity had 'frowned of, Jfil.'
"Sonator," said this ,etul-oyc(l lady,
"you Southerners are so chivalrous,
so ready to assist those in distress."
"Yes," replied the Senator, hesi
tating; ho had heard that bo fore
from gad-eyed people, and ho thought
he divined what was coming, "Would
you, Sonatoij "with your,.true South
ern chivalry do mo n favor and a
gieat kindness?" "Yes, madam,
what is that is It dopends some

The rcconl number of "Tho Maga
zino of. American History" devoted lo
Washington, savs C'coil Hampden
Cults Howard in the April number of J
that monthly, serves to bring up an
other incident in his cniccr which,
though known tun general way, has
a detail which Is new to most students
Of histoiy.
On the occasion of his visit to Ports
mouth, K. H., in 1780, ho called,
nmong other places, nt tho residence
of Jlndam Lear, the mother of his
private secretary. Before his call ho
sent Madam Lear a nolo lequcsting
that ho might sco all the: chlldicu.
The occasion wns a gala one in every
censo of the word, nnd every atten
tion duo tho honored Father of our
Country was shown to him, The
good Madam Lear, after tho return of
Washington, received from Martha
Washington three china ornaments
"fort lie chlldicn." They were tnkon
fiom Washington's own mantel, nnd
represented tespcctlvcly ti bird on n
branch of n tree, a peasant with a
boitnuct of (lowers, and n' girl with
(lowers.
For many years theso remained in
the possession of Madam Lear and
her family. They were destined to
ho separated, however. The bird on
the branch of n tree wns presented by
Madam Lenr to Mrs. Kdward Cutts of
'Portsmouth, N. IL, who was jjiuj-fc?-her
iiitlniate.trnTiT-mt''T)Cttt-een
wliomjJsHs'wero icgularlyaud often
0X"-nangcd. Tho bird was then in
excellent condition, without a crack
in any patt. The gift was duly ap
'predated by the recipient nnd care
fully guarded. Threcsi-oro years and
ten have elapsed slnco it went into
the hands of its third owner. Dining
that time it lcmaincd tliiity years or
uiorcin Portsmouth, N. II., an object
of curiosity and delight to both young
and old.
In 18X1 when Mrs. Edward Cutts
removed to the central part of tho
State of Vermont, with her children
and grandchildren, the bird wns
btill chciislied and followed tho fam
ily. Put fortv-fivo years havo sinco
passed, and tho china is sadly-nicked
ami marred sin'ee tho removal lo
Yeimont. Tho spreading branch is
gone, and only tho bird on n treo
stump remains to show its former
glory. From. Mrs, KtlwoTd Cutts It
descended to tlio family of that lady's
only son, tlio late lion. Hampden
Cutts, and at present is in tho homo
of tho writer, thq grandson, of Hon,
Hampden Cutts.
As a specimen of work in china of
nn early dny It is unique, and, oven In
Its present condition, roveals con
siderable of the Original shapo and
figure. Trifling In its intrinsic value,
it has from association an unusual In
terest, especially as it is difficult to
tell its exact ngo.nnd earliest associa
tions. Tho meio fact of Its having
been in Washington's" possession gives
it gieat interest, but, when wo dpubjo

When hostilities ceased ho found
himself nnd three companions near

slapping his only ijo-gold-pieco on tho
counter. "Just dish up that bcor till

Tho calculation was a short one, and
between drinks tlio four and tho
Dutchman became congenial friends.

The Young Men's National Itcpub

on Monday, Ufo 7th day of May, 1832.
Nearly every .State in the Union wns

"lOdclegates, among uhoimverc many
who afterward becamo eminent in
publiclife. William Cost Johnson of
Maryland presided, nnd amont: the
vice-presidents were Charles James
Faulkner of Virginia, William Pitt
Fcssenden of Maine and Gcorgo
W. Burnett of Ohio. Tho most
of tho tlmo of tho conven
tion was spent in speech-making,
and tho interest culminated on
Friday when Mr. Clay was conducted
to tho convention, and each momber
was personally presented to him, A'
strong platform was adopted declar
ing for protection to American indus
try, for a 11 ui form system of intoinat
improvements, for .a fearloss and in

Senate, nnd denouncing in vigorous,

"to consist of delegates equal to tho
number of electors of President in
each Stato bo held In Paltimoro on
tho third Monday of May, 1832, to
nomiuato a candidato for Vico-Prosl-dont
aud to tako. such other measures
in support 0 tntj ro-olectlon of An
drew Jackson as may be deemed ex
pedient." This recommendation was
indors'ed by tho Democrats of othor
Stato Legislatures nnd constituted the
formal call for
the nnsT pr.Moci:.Tic con'vkn'tiox.
Tho convention met at Italtimpro
on tho 21st of May, 18:12, every State
except Missouri being represented.
Tho call.havlng, originated with Now
Hampshire, tho convention was very
properly Called to order by Mr. Sum
ner of thnt State. General ltobort
Lucas of Ohio waa ehosqn temporary
chairman, and John A. Dix of Now
York temporary secretary, who wero
afterward -niado permanent ollicers,
with sovpriil vicc-piesldciitH uud as
sistant secretaries. Committees on
ciedcntlats nnd rules wcio appointed,
and, following tlio example or tho
two preceding conventions, the Voii
erablo Carroll of Carrollton was In
vited to tako a seat in tlio convention;
but, as on tlio two previous occasions,
he declined. The C'o'inmlttco on ltulos
reported
THE I'AMOPS TWO THIRDS' HUM-:,
which has pioved tlio political death
of so many nsptrnnts for tho Deniq
crntic Picsidcutlul nomination. It
wns adopted as follows :
JltKk'rttl, That each Muto lo entltlod In tl0
nomination for tlio Icu-lVeslitcney 10 u num
ber of votoa equal to tlio number to which
,tboy mo outltleU In llio Eloetorjl Collegji
iiwkr tho Dew npurtloniiient, In voting fqr
l'reitldcnt nnd Vlue-I'ieililontl and that two
thirds of tho wliolo number of tlnMOtosIn
tho convention shall be necessary to oonstl
tiituu choice,
The purposo of this rule wns to give
n semblance of fairness to tlio nomi
nation of Ynp Bitten. fo. as to take
nw;iy excuse for bolting. The ad
ministration managers wore sure of
thrce-fouithsof tlio convention, and
so could afford to adopt It. It wnU
also voted that eacli delegation deslg
noto by majority voto tho person by
whom tho vote of tho Stntoshall bp
given. A delegation was present
from tho Distiiet of Columbia, but It
was refueu admission by a voto of
120 to 1JU, thus establishing -n prece
dent, which up to 11 recent datowns
followed by Deniocrntle conventions
in excluding delegates from cither
tho District of Columbia or from tlio
Teuitorle.
till. VAN- IIUltllN's NOMINVTION.
No nominations wcio formally made
for n Vicc-Prcsidcnllal candidate, but
the lesult of tho ballot which was
ordered was as follows! , Van Buron,
208;ltlchaidM. Johnson, 20: Philip
P. Harbour, 10. Mr. Van Huron wns
declared duly nominated, nnd the
nomination Wns tnndo unanimous.
T1IK I'jrcsiIlKXOT.
No nomination was mado for tho
Presidency other than that contained
in the following resolution, which was
tuinnlmonsly adopted:
Jlftolieit, That thu coinmlttco reposo tho
highest confidence In tho tmrltjr, patriotism
nnd talonts of A nil row Jackson, nnd that wo
mot cordially concur In tho rcpoatod nomi
nations which ho 1ms recolved In tho various
pnrts of tho Union ns a candidato for ro
election to tlio ofllco which he now flUs With
so much honor lo lilin-clf nnd usefulness to
tho country.
No isliitform was adopted, but tho
several dclogntes woro rccominondcd
to Issue such an address tp the peoplo
of their respectiva States ns they
should dectn oxpcdlont. The conven
tion Is a notable ono ns boing tho first
ofnn unbroken, sorics held by tho
Democratic parly for a period o'f now
more than fifty years. By giving
each Stato delegation tbo vot'tig
strength possessed by such Stato in
tlio T.lcctornl Collcgo it transferred, fo
fnms tho Democratic paily was con
cerned, Uio power of independent
choice and judgment from the Elec
toral Colleges, wheio It had been
placed by the framers of tho Constitu
tion, to the national nominating con
vention. This first Democratic Na
tional Convention, devised by Win. B.
Lewis nnd Amos Kendall, was the first
step in glvlngalmohtsupromo political
power to tlio national nominating
convention, it has since been
ADoi"ri:n nv am, political i'Aiitii:.
Fiom the campaign of 1SU2 till the
ptesenl time thcro lias been 110 such
thing as an attempt on the part of an
elector to cxeici60 n judgment and
discretion of his own. Tho National
Nominnttng Convention, so far as tho
Democratic paity is concerned, had
conio to stay. Ostensibly it was to
furnish a inoro complete expression
of.tho voto of tho people, but really it
was tho scltin" up of n gigantic and
inexorable machine. The famous add
much-criticised two-thirds rulo which
has become ono of tho unnltornblo
laWB of Democratic conventions, has
made it marc diulculf, fpr delogatcs
from States hopelessly in tho control
of the opposite party to unite and
forco upon delegates representing
Democratic States a candidato whom
tho latter do not want, a danger that
is frequently 11 threatening one In
conventions where a baro majority
voto is. all sufficient. Major Lewis
and Amos Kendall wero shrewd poli
ticians, but thoy buiUed bettor than
they dreamed.

SENATORS' HOBBIES,
Vni louft Tilings Over "WlilohOlmulicru or
tlio Semite Aro u lilt Cranky.
Nearly overy man in the United
States SeuntOy says a Washington cor
respondent, has a hobby. Senator
Blair can talk about nothing but his
Educational bill, and ho cafs, drinks,
and thinkfl education, and sleeps with
a Commissioner's repa.rt under his pil
low. Sherman's hobby is finance,
and he has rhlilcn it to somo purpose.
Colquitt's is temperance, and Wilsqn
of Iowa is nstrido of tlio prohibition
Iiojsc, and ho believes thnt thcro will
be a Prohibition Picsidont of ,tl;c
United States by and by. Scnntjr
Slewnit'fl hobby is silver.- Piddle
borger's hobby is tho abolishing pf ex
ecutive sessions, and Mat, UnnsohOs
hobby is North Carolina and tho
whiteness of his cults, Tom Palmer's
hobbles are many. Tho chiof of
them aio tho Porchoron horse, tho
Jersey cow nnd .Marcus Aurolius An
touiiius, tlie old lioman Kmpcror.
Gcoigo Gruy's is. the law. Ho would
lather piactico at the bar than beforo
tho Senate. Arthur P. Gorinan's
hobby is politics allied to tlio theory
that to tho victors belong tbo spoils.
Senator Brown has a very good hobby
in tho Baptist Church, of which ho is
one of tlio pillars, nnd Jonathan
Cliaco, the Quaker, rid 03 tlio tariff
hobbv horic ouitc frcnucntlv. Sena
tor Cockrell's hobby is comniiftco
work, and ho grinds away liko a Iforso
in a treadmill nnd accepts nil the
work thnt tho others put upon him.
Cullom's hobby hns boon Interstate
commerce. It is now tho postal tclo
graph, and his resemblance to Lincoln,
i nm told, pleases him. Hoar of
Massachusetts has a number of hob
bles, and nmong them are American
history and bibliography. Hour
knows all about books, and 1 vonturo
to say ho can tell you just where
cvciy 0110 of the descendents of tho
families who camo over in tlie Mny
llow'er live .to-day. Kenna of West
Viiginia hns 11 hobby in amateur
photography, llo hns photographed
everything within reach in Wash
ington, and lie has inado his left cyo
actually soro fiom looking through
thocamera. McPlicrsonof Now Jorsoy
has a hobby in fine stock. ' EijU
niilnds'fl hobby is parliamentary lav
and the rules of tlio Senate,
mid John J. Ingalis's hobby is
tlie finding out of now words for
Ills ideas, tlio result of which search
appals 'the Senato liko an onslaught
of genius. Allison's hobby is diplo
macy, llo never lets tho loft hand
know whnt tho right hand is doing,
and Iugnllsouco said of him that ho
could walkover tlio baro iloorofttlio
Senate in wooden clogs aud make no
more noiso tiiau a ity 011 tlie ceiling.
Torn, Bow en's hobby begins withn
P. and I leave tho loader to guess
whether it is poker or politics. Frank
Illscoek'fi hobby is lrauk lliscock.
jieagan'fl sionuy is interstato com
merce, and Leland Stanford's hobby
is tho breeding and raising of fust
tiolliughoiscs.
