Where-whotber tbe prize be a ribbon or throne
The winner is he who can "go it alone I"
When great Galileo proclaimed that the world
Iu a regular orbit wss ceaselessly whirled,
And got not a couvort for all or his pains.
But only derltion, and prison, and chains,

for tie knew, like the Earth, he could ' go It alone!"

In battle or business, whatever tbe game,

That your heels are at least as hl;h as your brains.

No, no, Mr. Saxe, you may talk as you please;

There seigneurs most potent, aud followers of Mar,

at the Franklin Exchange, soldiers to the
number of about 40; also a large number of
invited quests; who at 8 o'clock were conduct

and made a short but patriotic speech, dealing
heavy blows on the heads of the whole Cop
perhead persuasion. He referred to the bat
tles fought and tedious marches endured by
the gallant 7th, and spoke of the valor which
had always characterized their movements.
In response to the congratulations upon his
promotion, lie said, give to these gallant men
all the praise. No matter what odds or what
obstacles they were called upon to overcome,
not a man had ever flinched. Said, he, Frank
lin may well be proud of the men who repre
sent her in the field. He spoke in glowing
terms of the achievements of the artillery- and
He then said that he met men who clamored
j against the war, because as thev claimed, un
constitutional measures are employed in its
her hair, rather astonished him
"I suppose the money is ready?"
"Mo, sir, it ia not."
"Then, Miss Olive pardon iue, I must
speak plainly I shaK send an officer here
this afternoon to put a valuation on the fur
niture, and"
"You will do nothing of the kind, sir."
Olive's cheek had reddened and her eyes
flashed portentously. Mr. Deane turned to
ward the door, but ere he knew what he was
doing, Olive had walked .quietly across the
room, locked the door aud taken out the key
-then she resumed her seat.
j "What does this mean?'- ejaculated the as
tonished "prisoner of war."
"It means, sir, that you will now be obliged
to reconsider the question," said Olive. .
"Yes you will hardly jump out of the
Window, and there is no other method of
egress unless yon choose to ga up the chira
ney. Now, then, Mr. Deane, will yont tell
me if you a Christian man in the nineteenth
century intend to sell a poor widow's furni
ture, because she is not able to pay your rent?
Listen, sir !"
Mr. Deane had opened his mouth to re
monstrate, but Olive enforced her words with
a very emphatic little stamp of the foot, and
he was, as it were, stricken dumb.
"Yeu are what the world calls a rich man,
Mr. Deane. Yon own rows of houses, piles
of bank stock, railroad shares, bonds, and
mortgeges who knows what? My aunt has

She paused an instant and looked intently
and gravely at Mr. Deane. The color rose to
his cheek it was not disagreeable to be told
by a pretty young girl that she liked him, on
any terms, yet she had indulged in pretty
plain speaking.

had hoped I should not be compelled to-refer
publicly to the matters involved iu it, and:
before I speak to the merits of the resolution
itself, I mast he indulged in the expression
of my opinion in regard to the custom which
is growing up in this body in reference to this
class of resolutions. The practice of this
House during the brief period in which I have
been a member has led me to iear that the
thanks of the Congress of the United States
are becoming too cheap au article in the eu
logistic literature ot tbe world. Time was
pos uro :
" But as it is, I shall only keep yon here a

third time it has haDDeued within th. Lair

"I certainly shall agree to no such terms,"
said Mr. Deane, tartly.
"Very well, sir, I can wait."
Miss Melleh deposited the key in the pock
et of her grey dress, and sat down to her
copying. Had she been a man Mr. Deane
would, probably have knocked her down as
it was,' she wore an invisible armor of power
in the very fact that she was a fragile, slight
woman, and she knew it !
"Miss Olive," he said, sternly, "let us ter-
if there was any Cpnffixitum for traitors iu
arms against this Government !
Said he, if there be a man present who can
not second the etideavorsr of that otd patriot
(referring to a portrait of President Lincoln

tain the laws, let him seek his closet and praj
God to remove him to his Heaven: and tn
and not until then, will you receive yoiirtne tax grumblers, when you have paid the

shame mantle your cheeks, when for a few
paltry dollars you are tempted to cry out
against your Government and Administration.
As for himself, he endorsed its measures, and
hoped for its continuance.
He took his 3eat amidst loud cheers.

Mr. Matthew Deane was in particularly
naa numor this raw December morning.
Everything had gone wrong. Stocks "had
fallen when they ought to have risen his
clerk had tipped over the inkstand on his
special and peculiar heap of paper the lire
obstinately refused to burn in the grate in
short, nothing went righl.and Mr. Deane was
consequently and correspondingly cross.
"Yes, sir !
"Go to the Widow Clarkson's and tell her
I shall be there in half an hour, and expect
confidently mind, Jenkins, confidently to
receive that rent money. Or else I shall feel
myself obliged to resort to extreme measures.
You understand, Jenkins?"
' "Certainly, sir."
"Then don't stand there starin' like an
idiot," snarled Mr. Deane, in a sudden burst
of irritation, and Jenkins disappeared like a
shot. - ,;v - 1 -. it) -: .'':: , O
J ust half an hour afterwards Mr. Matthew
Deane brushed the brown hair just sprinkled
with grey away from his square yet not un
kindly brow, and putting on his fur-lined
overcoat, he walked forth into the chilly win
ter air, fully determined, figuratively, to anni
hilate lho defaulting Widow Clarkson.
It was a dwarfish little red brick honse,
which appeared originally to have aspired to
two story-hood lot, but cramped by circum
stances had settled down into a story and a
half, but the windows shone like Brazilian
pebbles, and the doorsteps were worn by much
scouring. Neither of these circumstances,
however, did Mr. Deane remark, as he pulled
the glittering brass door knob, and strode
into Mrs. Clarkson's neat parlor.
There was a small fire very small, as if
every lump of anthracite was hoarded, in the
stove, and at a table with writing implements
before her, sat a yoiing lady whom Mr. Deane
at once recognized as Mrs. Clarkson's niece,
Miss Olive Mellen. She was not disagreeable
to look upon, though you would never have
thought of classing her among the beauties,
with shining black hair, blue, long-lashed eyes
and a very pretty mouth, hiding teeth like
ricu Kernels, so wnit were they. - peeked blv- ORvel
Mr. Deane, I will not."
"I shall shout and alarm the neighborhood,
then, or call a policeman."
"Very well, Mr. Deane, do so, ifyou please."
She dipped her pen into the ink and began
on a first page. Matthew sat down puzzled
and discomforted, and watched the Ion"
lashed eyes and faintly tinted cheek of his
keeper. She was very pretty what a pity
she was so obstinate.
"Miss Olive!"
"The clock has just struck twelve."
'I heard it!"
"I should like to get out to get a lunch!"
"I'm sorry that luxury is out of your power.'
'But I'm confounded hunorv!"
"Are you?"
'And I'm not going to stand this kind of
tning anv longer:"
How provokingly nonchalant she was. Mr.
Deane eyed the pocket of the grey dress
greedily, and walked up and down the room
"I have an appointment at one !"
"Indeed ? what a pity you will be unable
to keep it."
He took another turn across the room.
Ulive looked up with a smile.
"Well, are you ready to promise?"
"Hang it, yes ! what else can I do?"
"You promise?"
"I do, because I can't help myself."
Olive drew tho key from her pocket, with
softened eyes.
"You have made me verv hannv. Mr.
Deane. I dare say you think me unwoman
ly and unfemenine, but indeed you do not
know to what extremities we were driven by
poverty. Good morning, sir."
Mr. Deane -sallied forth with a curious com
plication of thoughts and emotions struggling
through his brain, in which gray dresses, long
lashed blue eyes and scarlet ribbons played a
prominent part.
"Did you get the money, sir?" asked the
clerk, when he walked into the office.
"Mind your business, sir," was the tart re
sponse.' "I pity her husband," he thouaht. as he
turned the papers over on his desk. " How
she will hen-peck him. By the way, I won

The next day he called at ihe widow
Clarkson's to assure Miss Mellen that ho had
no idea of breaking his promise, and the next
but one after that, he came to tell the young
lady she need entertain no doubts of his integ
rity. And the next week he dropped in on
them with no particular errand to serve as an
excuse !
"When shall we be married, Olive? Next
month, dearest? Do not let us put it off later."
"I have no wishes but yours, Matthew."
"Reajly, Miss Olive Mellen, to hear that
meek time, one would suppose you had never
locked tne up here, and tyrannised over me
as a jailor!"
Olive burst into a merry laugh.
"You! dear old Matthew, I give you warnt
ing beforehand that I mean tw have my own
way in iverythinjt. Do you wish to "recede
from yoUr. bargain? It is not too late yet.'
No. Matthew Deana didn'tt hp Vim! a v.a,..

short time, at least,) to forget all else, and
make a grand charge at fat turkeys, chicken
pies, and pyramids of all kinds of provisions
prepared by the good ladies, and at them they
went, weapons in hand, and caused everything
in front to make an unconditional surrender.
After all had refreshed themselves to their
hearts' content, the following volunteer toasts
were offered :
By A. H. Day : Our great Union Army
may it be instrumental in restoring peace to
our bleeding country.
By Mr. Kent : Company F, of the noble

may their stomachs never hold less.
By Dr. P. Sawyer : The disabled soldiers ;
may the Nation and communities extend to
them the deepest gratitude, and with enlight
ened sympathy and liberality, alleviate, as far
as possible, their great misfortunes.
This was responded to by Gyn. E. B. Ty
ler, who paid a high compliment to the brave
boys in the army, and especially to those be
longing to the 2d Ohio Cavalry and Good
speed's 1st Ohio Battery, saying, among other
things, that he was mainly indebted to those
branches of the service for his present position.

with much feeling of the departed dead.
When he concluded, and after a profound si
lence of some minutes, a song, " Brave Boys
must Fall," was sung in a very touching
manner, which added greatly to the interest
of this particular part of the exercises.
By Thos. C. Stewart : To the 7th Ohio ;
the first in war, may they be the first in
peace, and the first in the hearts of their

in the estimation and affection .of the Ameri
can, people to receive through xhe solemn
forms of law the thanks of the nation through
its Representatives in Congress assembled.-
To merit that was worth a lifetime of sacri
fice and hero sm. We have changed this
worthy custom. Since this session began,
many resolutions of thanks have been passed
without being referred to tho appropriate
committees, without remarks, and almost
without notice. They have been passed tac
itly by a kind ef common consent. We have
not only thanked officers who were chiefs of
armies, but also those who have held subor
dinate positions in the various armies of the
Republic. No question "has been asked
whether the officer was entitled to this dis
tinction, or whether by thanking oue, another
was not robbed of his merited honor. I re
peat that I have seen these things with a
feeling lhat we are cheapening the thanks ol
Congress by distributing them without dis
crimination and without Question. T luv.
been so willing to thank any man who has
served tne country m this war, that I have
not leu disposed to interpose objection.
In many of the instauces referred to I have
had no knowledge of the merits of the case.
But when it comes so close to my own expe
rience and knowledge of the historv of the
war, I cannot permit a resolution of this kind
to pass without my protest against this hasty
and thoughtless style of legislation. I have
been surprised that the honorable members
of this House should treat so lightly the
matters involved in thanking the public ser
vants of the nation. I now appeal to your
nense oi justice wnetner it be ngut to single
out a subordinate officer, give him the thanks
of Congress, and pass his chief in silence..
On what grounds are you now ready to ignore
the man who has won so many of the proud
est victories? I do not believe that such is
tho purpose or wish of this House.
This resolution proposes to thank Major
General Thomas and the officers and moti
under his command for gallant services in the
battle of Chickamaugua. It meets mv hear.
ty approval for what it contains, but my pro
test for what it does not contain. I shonld
be recreant to my own sense of justice did I
allow this omission to pass without notice.
No man here is ready to say and if there be
such a man I am ready to meet him that
the thanks of this Congress are not due to
Muj r-General W. S. Rosecrans. for the cam
paign which culminated in the battle of
Chickamauga. It is not uncommon through
out the press of the country, and among
many people, to speak of that battle as a dis
aster to the Army of the United States, and
to treat of it as a defeat. If that battle was
a defeat, we may welcome a hundred such
defeats. I should be glad if each of our ar
mies would repeat Chickamauga. Twenty
such would destroy the rebel army and the
Oon.ederacy utterly and forever.
What was that battle, terminating as it did
a great campaign whose object was to drive
the rebel army beyond the Tennessee, and to
obtain a foothold on the south bank of that
river which should form the basis of future
operations in the Gulf States? We had uev-
er yet crossed tne river, except Jar below in
the neighborhood orCorihth. Chattanooga
was th3 gateway. of the Cumberland Moun
tains, and until we crossed the river and held
the gateway, we could not commence opera
tions in Georgia. Tha army was ordered to
cross the river, to grasp and hold the key of
the Cumberland Mountains, It did cross, in
the face of superior numbers; and after two
days of fighting, more terrible, I believe, than
any since this war began, the Army of the
Cumberland hurled back, discomfited and re
pulsed, tbe combined power of three rebel
armies, gained the key to the Cumberland
Mountains, gained Chattanooga, and held it
against every assault. If there has been a
more substantial success against overwhelm
ing odds since this war began, I have not
heard of it.
We have had victories God be thanked
all along the line, but in the history of this
war I know of no such battle against such
numbers: forty thousand Against an army of
not less by a man than seventy-five thousand.
After the disaster to the right wing in the last
bloody afternoon of September 20, twenty
five thousand men of the Army of the Cum
berland stood and met seventy-five thousand
hurled against them. And they stood in their
bloody tracks immovable snd victorious whfii
night threw its mantle around them. They
hmt repelled the Ust assault of the rebel br
iny. Who commanded the Army of the
noble man who will be burdened with, tbe
woignt oi tnese tnanKs that wrong his bctsth
er officer, and his syjjenpr in command. All
I ask is that you wll pn htsth into
the resolution, and let them stand side by
Mr. FENTON. I move that the joint res
olution be referred to the Committee on Mil
itary Affairs; and upon lhat motion I demand
the previous question.
The previous question was seconded, and
the main question ordered ; and undej: the
operation inereot tuo motion to refer was
agreed to.
Mr. FENTON rofiyed to reconsider the
vote by which tha joint resoltitj was refer
red; and also moved to lav the motion to re
consider npon the table.
The latter motToti was agreed to.
' The distinguished William Wirt, within
six or seven months after his first marriage,
became addicted to intemperance, the effect
of which operated on tbe mind a:td health of
his wife, and iu a few months more she was
numbered with tbe dead. Her death led
him to leave the country where he resided.
and he removed. to Richmond, where be soon
rose to distinction. But his habit bungshodt
him, and occasionally he w s found with jol
lv, frollicsome spirits of tAaixthanaUan revelry.
His tree, friends expostulated with him to
convince him of the ipjnry he was doing
himself. But he still persisted. His practice
began to fall off, end many looked on him as
on the sure road to ruin. Herwas advised to
get married with a view ef correcting his
habit. This he consented to do if the right
person offered. He accordingly paid his ad
dresses to Miss Gamble. After some months
attention, he asked her hand in marrVge.
She replied:
