Sti!l, a throng of friuuda ke-j't pouring
tin anJ out all the dat, and tbi'ae tinit-

it wna eight o'clik at night befora bo
bud finished hi limt lt'&der. A it prtw

bis answer wns,"I am not quite through;
I will go in a few momt nts."
At buit General liiiHterd came iu from
the Btrett, reporting that tlie crowd,
now greatly augmented, wero clftmor
ing wildly for "ould Gray ley." "It in
absolute mad'.H'Hs," be added, "for you
to stay longer;" but the answer still
wa, "I am not quite through; I will go
in a few momenta."
Eight o'clock at hist canio, and then
Col. Adams and another geuil'iniin
Kent out for ft elosa carriage to be bro't
to the sale door, and thru going to Mr.
Gret'li'.V, accosted him somewhat an fol
lows: "Mr. Greeley, a carriage, will be here
inntaiilly. We want you to leave the

"I am not quite ready; I will go in a
few moments," was ng:in the quiet un
swer. "We insist on your iroiii'' neiic. A
hundred ,u, 1 fafiy f nt hio l ining our
tud, f. inl voiir tniildini'. nnd von
huve no lifhl to mil to our dangur."
At this the philosopher slowly lose,
and v.ilh his peculiar smile, uaiil, "Hut
why order a earringe? I could have
gone just us well in u street ear."
"You couldn't have got to a car.
Look down there, and see the kind of a
crowd that snriouiuls the building."
liu lool.ej down and saw what might
have made a man of even iron nervo
turn a liUl'J p.'ilii 1. ilio inrornal ro-
ii)Ua LaJ tel.n ulll,K,fL,(l, and the dev-
ils wero there, Boouling and hooting,
and howling, and groaning ou the
pavement. Such another crew never
got together on this or any other plan
et; nnd as ho looked they shouted:
"Come out, ye ould hay then; come out,
and we'll taich ye a naygur's an good
as a Irishman."
"Well, they are iv hard looking set,"
he sai I, tiirninj quietly arour.d and
drawing on bis coat, preparatory to
leaving; "where could those fellows
have come from ?"
He was smuggled into the carriage,
the door was closed, and in half an
hour he was miles away, in safety.
As all know, the riot lasted two days
longer. Daring every Lour of thoso
two days the Tribune office nnd its ed
itors were in almost hourly danger;
but Mr. Greeley came and went us usu
al, and as usual attended to the duties
of bis position, as if only quiet were
reigning iu the blood-deluged city; and
ail this while some of the great dailies
were posting him as a poltroon; and
even a venerable archbishop had the
bad taste to publicly brand him as mor
ally and physically a coward!
Whatever may be the facts touching
Mr. Greeley's moral or phy ieal cour
age, he showed upon this occasion an
j i,ltferu,c.tuai Qomaj, tml 8toua Lim

children bavfl taken it np; and here is
a set of families that have warm times.
They are as spiteful as cats and dogs,
and throw sparks j.ks a blacksmith's
forge all the timet. And yet this man
ia a roaring good Christian. He
goes to inerHiug. There is a revival;
and bis religious feelings are all ng'.ow.
And it ia alt right. He does fee! just
oa be says be does. There is no hypoc
risy in bis profession. Ho tukes his
hytiiii book, and the minister happens
to be fortnnat, and the hymn comes
right borne, and cirenmstauees concur,
and the electric influences are favorable,
and the meeting is a joyous one, and
be don't go home nntil twelve o'clock.
He las sung twenty hymns; and be
does feel as though be could not keep
bimsi If on the grouud. "A little more,
Lord," tie eays, "and I shall fly away."
Now, I want to see if to-morrow be
will go to that neighbor, and say, "Look
here, my dear fellow, we are wrong
at any rate I am, whether yon are or
not. I have been ng'y. Forgive me,
I bad SMch ft good time last night, that
I must clean my heart. My pride must
comedown, my vanity must, come down,
nnd I must be reconciled to yo.i "
He ditl have a good time, au 1 thn1, is
the sign that the feeling which bo ex
perienced was genui e. That be roared
bin hymns joyfully was no sign of it;
that he had tin cr-itacy of prayr r wan
no sign of it; but that having H at ele
vation, he changed it to a moral pur
pose; that out of that feeling he
wrought gar-menls of duty; that out of
that experience he came back to his fellow-men
more sympathetic, more gen
tle, more bumble, more Cbrist-liko
ah 1 that was a sign that the feeling was
a genuine one. Otherwise it would
have been simply sign of self-indul
gence.
A man that takes his excess of moral,
social, and religious excitement, to raise
the tone of his moral and emotive feel
ings, is just iih dissipated as if bo raised
tho tone of bis physical foeliugs by
physical stimulants. I tuu not institu
ting a comparison as to wTiich is the
better and which is the worse. I mere
ly say that one is ten perance just as
much as the other, though one is gross
er than the other, mid is more disas
trous in undoing the very structuro of
the body itself. Aud men ought to be
made to understand that there is such
a thing as moral intoxication, and that
a man can take a religious feeling, and
that be can w hat shall I say ? imbibe
and imbilie, and imbibe, for no other
reason than because it feels so good.
It is a self-indulgence. It is a luxury
a higher luxury, to be sure. An 1 he
imbibes and imbibes, and is more joy
ful. He is not a better man; but he is
a much happier man. And ho imbibes
and imbibes, until by and by be swings
and Bwiugs, and the ruan is berated.
I have seen men that were literally de
bauched at, the lop of their bruins, and
bud gone into a systematic self-indulgence.
They never were happy except
under circumstances where they bad
this peculiar form of enjoying them
selves. If I found that the whole form of this
enjoyment was a mighty spring that
w as pressing tin m toward self denial
for the sake of their fellow men; if I
found that it was scouring their mor
als as white as snow; if I found that it
was multiplying the avenues of their
j usefulness; if I found that they wore
J gtle and meek iu following Christ,
j then I shouid say that there was no clo
' btiuch there, that there was no moral
, inleuiperanco there. Feelin;; which, j

Shortly afuir tht war with Great
UriUin, an aristocratic English goutle
niiui built a rtsidtuce ia the vicinity of
Fort George, on the Niagara frontier,
tuid in accordance with the old country
idea of exclusiveness, eiiejoied bis lands
with a bigb, tight fence. Here be liv
ed like au old English gentleman- one
of the olden time- with the exception
that none but the elito of the province
and the officers of the neighboring gar
rison were permitted to pass his gate.
Thre was a very good understanding
between the American officers at Fort
Niagara aud the British at Fort George,
and the men were permitted occasion
ally to visit back and forth. Among
the American soldiers was a queer chap
who stuttered terribly, was very fond
of hunting, and was always getting in
to some sort of mischief.
One day this chap took the small
boat that lay moored at tne foot of the
wuUb of the fort, and cros-ed over to the
Canadian shore for a hunt. He sun-
dered over several miles iu the rear of
Fort George, wiLliout seeing any game,
a.Kl ou nis return see.ug a crow on a
tree withm the eiic'o-itiie of the uristo-
crutie Engiishiii.ui, ho scaled the high
fence, liri'd, and brought dowii bis bird.
The Colonel, or whatever his titles may
have been we wiil civil him Colonel,
unyaow witnessed tho truusact.uu,
aud advanced while our soldier was re
loading. He was very uugiy, but i.te
ii g the laukeo standing very coolly
with a loaded gun ill his baud, he gulp
ed dowu his passion for the moment,
nnd merely asked him if he bad killed
tho crow. The soldier replied that he
bad.
"I am sorry," said the Colonel, "for
bo was a pot. By the way, that ih u
very pretty gun will yon be so kind as
to let me look at it ?"
Tho soldier complied with the re
quest. The Euglibhinan took the gun,
stepped back a few paces, took deliber
ate aim, and then broke forth iu a ti
rade of abuse, concluding with an or
der to stoop down and taLo a bito gf
the crow, or be would blow bis brains
out. Tho soldier explained, apologized
und entreated, It was of no use. Tho
Colonel kept bis linger ou the trigger,
and sternly repeated his command.
There was shoot iu the Englishman's
eye there was no help for it aud tho
stuttering soldier stooped and ' took
bite of the crow, but swallow it be could
not. Up came bis breakfast bis sup
per the day before and really it seem
ed as if he would throw up bis toe nails.
The Enghsinan glouted over tho mise
ry of bis victim, and smiled complac
ently at every additional heave. When
be got through vomiting and wiping
Lis eyes, the Colonel banded hiui his
gun, with the remark
"Now, you rascal, that will teach you
bow to poach on a gentleman's enclos
ure." The Yankee soldier took bis gun, and
the Colonel might have seen the devil
in hi eye if be bad looked close. Step
ping back he took deliberate uim at the
beait of bis host, and ordered him in
stantly to finish the crow. Angry ex
postulations, prayers and entreaties
were useless things, 'i here was shoot
iu the American eye then, as there bad
been in the EnglisL eye before. There
was no help at band, and be took a bite
of the crow. One bite was euougb to
I send all the good dinners be bad lately
j eaten ou the same journey with the
garrison fare of the soldier, and, while
the Eugiishmuu was iu agony of sick
nens, Johnulhuu escuptid to the Ameri
can shore.
The next morning early the comman
dant of Fort Niagara was sitting iu bis
quarters, when Colonel wasau-
iiouucod. "hi r." said tho Coiond, "I

I.. k !.. .Vt lb cl of a stormy
Maii L J.iy of t'-iS ytr two soid-eri
were rroM.ng fiota Newpoit to Pert
Adams in a tail-boat maunged by an
iueiH i u need lad. When they welt
pa i tly aero a blast struck the craft;
tbti tioy was confounded, the Imat cap
sized, aud for half au hour, clmgni to
the keel, the haptens men and boy ttrug
glml with the waves. Then the bold of
the Kiy rulaxed, and he sank; but a
boat bad put off from Lime Bock Light
house, about half a mile away, and bat
fore the lut-u were exhausted it bad
reached thmn, mid they were saved.
Tbe persons who saved thttn i Ida
Lewis nnd her brother Hoseo, children
of the keeper of the light.
Ten years ago in the asine harbor
four youug fellows were upset iu a boat,
aud tho SLiuu girl La-tteaed iu her skill
to rescue tbeuv . A little lster three
drunken soldiers store bole iu their
boat not fur from the light. Two swam
ashore, the third was saved by Ida
Lewi when nearly exhausted. Two
years ago some men were driving a
sheep upon the wharf in Newport The
auitual plunged into tho water, and
three men running along the shore iu
pursuit at length found a skiff an. put
out into the harbor. A heavy sou'wes
ter 11 win;', and the skiff t a swam; 1.
Once more Ida Lewis -pushed oft' for
them, and bringing them safe to shore,
returned and landed the sheep. Iu the
next winter ft Scape grace stole a sail
boat from tho wharf titid imide ofT
But tlie gale drove it upon tho little
Lima ltock, a'inile from the light; an:!
the thief iluug to tho must fi0:ii mid
night nut 1 mo ruing, when Lin Lewis
-ft v hiui, at.d rowing to h.s rel.i l, found
him, as she V'id, ".il.ak iig nnd God
bloHsing inn, and praying to Im set on
l-h.-IV."
This is a'ghl in her twenty-eight
year, slender, Line eyed, With liht
browu hair, frank and hearty, and like
ly to In? mnio famous next sn miner than
any Newpoit belie.
But the heroic story of which these
aro tho incidents suggests sotno very
improving reflections upon the- split ra
of woman. No ono can read tho rc
port in the newspapers, no one certain
ly read tho brief telegraphic uoficfl li
on tlie following nioruing, without a
thrill of admiration nn.1 sympathy.
But are we to uudeist.iud that such
emotion was natural and proper? Are
wo to believe that it is "feminine-' for
young women to row boats iu storms ?
Is it "womanly" to tug and strain
tluough u tempest, und then pull half
drowned men into a skiff?
Now, speaking soberly, no man will
be such au let us say donkey, as to
insist that it was unfeuiiuine in Ida
Lewis to pull off iu her bout to save
men from drowning. It was no more
unfeiiiiiiitie than to sing a babe to sleep.
Aud if this bo so, then it was perfectly
womanly to learu the use of oars to
ucq'ure the means of doing so great
service to Iter leilow-creatures, a ser
vice which touches the heart and the
imagination, and, as in the instance of
Giaco Darling, will become a poetic
tradition
Y hen we have come as far as this
there is certainly no need of asking
whether such actions full within the
sphere of woman, or whethei they ore
competent to row bouts. Ida Lewis
bus show n that sho can row to some
purjMjso, can row indeed to such pur-
jKise that every generous heart applauds.
This seems to settle the whole vexatious
question about women. Indeed there
is really no more question about wo
men than about men. And unless the
whole debute or subject of the rights of
J men, which has shaken society now for
to many years, a id oft;n to such tre
I tnendoiis results, a folly, t! st upon the
i i ikjiiLi of women eau hai illy lie smilei
