STRENGTH OF MF.MOKT.
Tlif strength ot Mr. Choate’s memory
one ot th' most remarkable tiling-,
limit that remarkable man. Her not onlv
ead ei en tiling, but lie remembered
very thing lie read. lie knew where the
ook was in which the desired informa
i*>n eould be found, the vety page, and
he precise location of the book in the
ibrary where it happened to be. While
l y ing the celebrated sewing-machine case
efore Judge \\ oodhurv, 1 heard him re
uest a friend to go to the Athemeniu and
et him a volume of a set published by
harnbers. The article he wanted wu<
n the manufacture of silk. He described
le set, the room in which it was kept,
nd the very spot in the library where it
ould be found. He wrote down nearly
verything in a case that he could. The
et of writ’ng fastened the thing in his
lemory. and it was ready for instant use.
n the trial of a cause lie kept two sets of
otes—one the testimony, the other a di
e«t and the argument. ’ He was ready to
rgue a ease the moment the testimony
losed. His memory enabled hint to talk
n any subject introduced. He was at
onie on the black-letter law, knew famil
nrly the intricate Knglish law of entail,
.nd could discuss the laws of any nation
is intelligibly as he eould a common net of
issatilt anil battery. I walked with him
rotn the court-fconse on Saturday pre
ions to the delivery of his celebrated
‘tilogy on Webster, before DartmouthCnl
ege. He had been before the United
dates Court. conducting an intricate trial,
he heat like that of a tropical climate.
Vo Vent into the Varber-sbop undei the
irotufiuld House, for he said, “1 must be
humpooed daily, or i should died’ Tin
ulogy on \\ ebsler, I think, was to be dr
iven d on 1 Intraday. This was Saturday,
aid the intervening Monday was to be eon
uim-d in the journey to Hanover. I said
o him: ••Of course your eulogy on Wei -
>ter is completed.’’ He drew himself up
o his full height, and laying his hand on
civ shoulder, he said: “.Sir.--, as Hive,
lot a word of that eulogy is w ritten." Yt;
t was di livered as announced—delivered
rviihout notes, fully written out and coni
nitted in the writing. 1 knew one instance
u which he completed his lecture at the
dime a short time before the train started
■hat was to carry him to his appointment,
lie left the manuscript on his desk, and
gat e the lecture, he said, as near verbatim
ts he desired to, and that a ithout a scrap
tieforu him. He was very careful of the
wordings of hi- motions before the higher
■ourts. His phraseology was always pe
:uliar. Having written his motion on a
clip of paper, he usually crumpled it in
lis hand and threw it on the floor as he
ose to address the bench. I have fre
|Uclilly picked up these jottings, and
onie of them 1 have to this day.—Ex

{EDI CTION OF THE DEBT B\ AlCIDEST.
Our national del it is undergoing reduc
ion in other ways besides those indicated
n the nionthlv debt statements of the Sec
•etary of the. Treasury. The various forms
>f paper money issued by the government
n the process of circulation are worn out,
o>t, burned or destroyed in other ways,
■o that a very considerable percentage of
hem will nev er lie redeemed. Of the old
loslal currency, the first issue of paper
noney, in denominations less than one
lollar, more than four millions and a half
lave never been presented for payment,
md it is estimated that at least one half of
his amount never will be. Of the second
ssue, three and a half millions are out
standing, and not less than a third of this
s supposed to have been destroyed. Ot
he third scrit s, nearly seventei n millions
ire yet unredeemed, and about a fourth of
his. probably with it. Altogether, more
ban seven and a hail millions of fractional
.iirreney have disappeared, and to the gov
ernment are tlie same as paid.
More than eleven millions of the demand
votes issued under the acts of July, lMil.
ind February, ISO:.', are standing upon the
books of tile treasury, and not less than
aalf of this amount,’it is estimated, had
'cell lost bv tire or shipwreck, or other
iisaster. In the same way the legal tender
lotes of the early issues which have been
u (in itiation lor seven years or more, have
tillered so that live millions or more of
hem will never be presented for rcdcmp
ion. In addition to all tluse there are
nore than one hundred thousand dollars
it the funded debt of the vv ars of the revo
utiou and of 1812, which are still comput
ed as a part of the national debt, although
not a dollar of it lias beeu presented for
payment for many years. The process of
Jestruetion >lill goes on. and the treasury
s relieved by it some millions annually.—

4I.L FLESH IS (iti.tSS.
A man named Andrew Hupp came into
own with a load of hay. Hu desired to
■<■11. and succeeded in tinding a purchaser
nthe First Ward. Hupp, with all the
mtward simplicity of au innocent being,
Irove on to licnienway. Wood & Co’s
calcs, and had the hay weighed. The
lay was weighed, Hupp drove off the
■calcs, turned around, and started to de
iverthc hay to the purchaser; but, alas!
>vhat an unlucky transaction for llupp!
How unfortunate it was that just at that
lime there were several persons standing
•lose by, naturally looking toward the hav,
md, still more unfortunate, that, while
limy were thus looking, the load of bay
should insist on upsetting, llut it did,
md, lo and behold! from the midst there
if tumbled a female form of the partuer
if the joys attu sorrows of said Andrew
llupp. Yes, there was the veritable Mrs.
llupp, iu all her pristine majesty and love
liness ; but, in less time than it takes to
say "Jo Mowers,” she dodged behind a
lumber pile, thinHag perhaps, that her
little episode had not been seen by any
body. The hay v. as reloaded, taken to its
destination, and llupp returned to get his
■(•ale certificate. It was handed over to
iiim with 17 j pounds added to the tale, at
which he never muttered a single Wold of
objection.—Lansing (Inca) Mirror,
