VT., FRIDAY, iltisatlmuj. ltecollectlong ot a Busy Life , The following is the concluding article of Mr. Greeley's series of " Recollections of a Busy Life," which, during the past year, have been published in the columns of the New York Ledger. NO. LVI (AND LAST.) MY DEAD. " I do not wear my heart upon mv sleeve," and shrink from the intrusion of matters purely personal upon an indiff erent public. I have aimed, in the series herewith closed, to narrate mainly such facts and incidents as seemed likely to be of use, either in strengthening the young and portionless for the battle of life, or in commending to their acceptance con victions which I deem sound and impor tant. My life has been one of arduous, intermitted laboi" of efforts to achieve other than personal ends of efforts which have absorbed most of the time which others freely devote to social inter course and to fireside enjoyments.. Of those I knew and loved in youth, a ma jority have already crossed the dark rivr er, and I will not impose even their names on an unsympathizing world. Among them is my fellow-apprentice and life-long friend, who, after long illness, died in this city in 1861 ; my first part ner, already named, who was drowned while bathing in 1832; and a young poet of promise who was Blowly yielding to consumption when the tidings of our Bull Run disaster snapped short his thread of life as it would have snapped mine had it been half as frail as his. The faces of many among the departed, whom I have known and loved come back to me as I gaze adown the vista of my half centu ry of active life ; but I have no right to lift the vail which shrouds and shields their long repose. I will name but those who are a part of myself, and whose loss to earth has profoundly affected my sub sequent career. Since I began to write these reminis- censes, my mother's last surviving broth er, John Woodburn, has deceased, aged 72, leaving the old Woodburn homestead, I understand, to some among his children ; so has my father's brother, Isaac, aged 80, leaving, so far as I know, but one of the nine brothers (John) still living. My father himself died on the 18th of De cember lost, aged 86. IIelail, for twelve years or more, been a mere wreck, first in body only; but his infirmities ulti mately affected his miud : so that, when I last visited him, a year before his death, he did not recognize me till after he had sat by my side for a full half hour ; and he had before asked my old est sister, "Did you ever know Henry Greeley ? " alluding to one of her sons, then several years dead, ne had fitful flashes of mental recovery ; but he had been so long a helpless victim of hope less bodily and mental decay that I did not grieve when I learned that his spirit had at length shaken off the incumbrance of the mortal coil, which had ceased to be an instrument, and remained purely an obstruction. Of his protracted life, 42 years had been spent in or on the verge of New England, and 44 in his deliberately chosen, steadily retained Pennsylvania home. My son, Arthur Young; ("Pickie"), born in March, 1854, was the third of seven children, whereof a son and daugh ter, severally born in 1838 and 1842, scarcely opened their eyes to a world which they entered but to leave. Physi cally, they were remarkable for their striking resemblance in hair and features to their father and mother respectively. Arthur had points of similarity to each of us, but with a decided superiority, as whole, to either. 1 looked in vain through Italian galleries, two years after ho was taken from us, for any full para lell to his dazzling beauty a beauty not physical merely, but visibly rudiating from" the soul. His hair was of the finest and richest gold ; " the sunshine of pic ture" never glorified his equal ; and the delicacy of his complexion at once fixed the attention of observers like the late N. P. Willis, who had traversed both hemispheres without having his gaze ar rested by any child who could bear a comparison with this one. Yet he was not one of those paragons sometimes met with, whose idlest chatter would edify a Sunday school who never do or say aught that Propriety would not sanction and Piety delight in but thoroughly human, and endowed with a love of play and mischief which kept him busy and happy the lifelong day, while rendering him the delight and admiration of all around him. The arch delicacy where with he inquiringly suggested, when once told a story that overtaxed his credulity, " I 'pose that aint a lie " was character istic of his nature. Once, when about three years old, having chanced to espy my watch lying on a sofa as I was dress ing one Sunday morning, with no third person present, he made a sudden spring of several feet, caught the watch by the chain, whirled it around his head, and sent it whizzing against the chimney, shattering its face into fragments. " Tick' io," I inquired, rather sadly than angri ly, ' how could you do me such injii ry T " " Cause I was nervous," he regret fully replied. There wero ladies then making part of our household whose nerves wero a source of general as well as personal discomfort, and this was his attestation of the fact , i There were wiser and deeper sayings treasured as they fell from his lipa ; but I will not repeat them. Several yet live who remember the graceful gayety where with he charmed admiring circles assem bled at our house, and of two or three larger gatherings of Social Reform in this city, and at the N. A, Phalanx in New Jersey; and I think some grave seignors, who were accustomed to help us enjoy our Saturday afternoons in our ru ral suburban residence at Turtle Bay, were drawn thither quite as much by the admiration of the son as by their regard for his parents. Meantime, another daughter was giv en to us, and, after six months, with drawn ; and still another born, who yet survives ; and he had run far into his sixth year without one serious illness. His mother had devoted herself to him from his birth, even beyond her intense consecration to the care of her other chil dren ; had never allowed him to partake of animal food, or to know that an ani mal was ever killed to be eaten ; had watched and tended him with absorbing love, till the perils of infancy seemed fairly vanquished ; and we had reason to hope that the light of our eyes would be spared to gladden our remaining years. It was otherwise decreed. In the sum mer of 1849, the Asiatic cholera sudden ly reappeared in our city, and the fright ened authorities ordered all swine, &c, driven out of town that is, above For tieth street whereas our home was about Forty-eighth street, though no streets had yet been cut through that quarter. At once, and before we realized our danger, the atmosphere was polluted by the ex halations of the swinish multitude thrust upon us from the densely peopled hives south of us, and the cholera claimed its victims by scores before we were gene rally aware of its presence. Our darling was among the first: at tacked at 1 A. M. of the 12th of July, when no medical assistance was at hand ; and our own prompt, unremitted efforts, reinforced at length by the best medical skill within reach, availed noihing to stay the fury of tho epidemic, to which he succumbed about 5 P. M. of that day one of the hottest, as well as quite the longest, I have ever known. He was en tirely sane and consicous till near the last ; insisting that he felt little or no pain, and was well, save that we kept him sweltering under clothing that he wanted to throw off, as he did, whenever he was permitted. When at length the struggle ended with his last breath, and even his mother was convinced that his eyes would never again open on the scenes of this world, I knew that the summer of my life was over, that the chill breath of its autumn was at hand, and that my future course must be along the downhill of life. , Yet another son (Raphael Uhland) was born two years afterward who, though more like his father and less like a poet than Arthur, was quite as deserving of parental love, though not so eminently fitted to evoke and command general ad miration. He was with me in France and in Switzerland in the summer of 1855, spending with his mother and sister the previous winter in London, and that subsequent in Dresden ; returning with them in May, '56 to fall a victim to the croup the ensuing February. I was ab sent on a lecturing tour when apprised of his dangerous illness, and hastened home to find that he had died an hour before my arrival, though ho had hoped and striven to await my return ; he had fulfilled his sixth year and twelve days over when our home waa again made desolate by his death. Another daughter was born to us four weeks later who survives; so that we have reason to be grateful for two chil dren left to soothe our decline, as well as for five who having proceeded us on the long journey, await us in the land of souls. My life has been busy and anxious, but not joyless. Whether it shall be prolonged few or more years, I am grate ful that it has endured so long, and that it has abounded in opportunities for good not wholly unimproved, and in ex perience of the nobler as well as the bases impulses of human nature, I have been spared to see the end of giant wrongs, which I once deemed invincible in this century, and to note the silent up springing and growth of principles and influences which I hail as destined to root out some of the most flagrant and pervading evils that yet remain. - I real ize that each generation is destined to confront new and peculiar perils to wrestle with temptations and seductions unknown to its preeeccssors ; yet I trust that progress is a general law of our bo intr, and that the ills and woes of the fu ture shall be less crushing than those of SEPT. 25, ,1868. the bloody and hateful past. So, looking calmly, yet humbly, for that close of my mortal career, which cannot be far dis tant, I reverently thank God for the blessings vouchsafed me in the past ; and with an awe that is not fear, and a con sciousness of demerit which does not ex clude hope, await the opening before my steps of the gates of the eternal world. From the Cleveland Herald. Dennis O'Flahcrty. HIS VIEWS OF POLITICAL MATTERS THE EINANCIAL QUESTION THE .DIMMY K RATIO PARTY TIIE HAYGUR SAY MORE, Ac., &C. ' The following letter, through design, accident, or blunder, we cannot tell which came into our hands instead of going into tho mail bags en route for Kildowery, which, we learn from the Gazetteer, is a parish about twenty-five miles from Cork, and in the county of that name. The seal was broken before reaching us, and it took the combined ingenuity of the whole corps of editors, the foreman, and three of the composi tors having the largest experience in set ting " blind copy," to decipher the letter and its superscription. Not feeling cer tain as to the intention of the writer or his messenger in letting the epistle stray into our hands, we have taken the liber ty of putting it into type, feeling that our labors in deciphering the hiero glyphics of Mr. O'Flaherty have given us some rights as a discoverer. At the same time, that no harm may be done by this course, we shall send a printed copy to Mr. McGiuness, in Kildowery, who will, we venture to hope, find great er satisfaction in reading his cousin's let ter in good type than in the original hen tracks.

Your Cousin, 'l Mldv sne fe v. bixam O'Fureitt, Read This to Your Sweethearts. The character of the young men of a community depends much on that of the young women. If the latter are culti vated, intelligent, accomplished, the young men will feel the requirement that they themselves should be upright, and gentlemanly and refined ; but if their female friends are frivolous and silly, the young men will be found to be dissi pated and worthless. ' But remember, al ways, that a sister is the best guardian of a brother's integrity. She is the suro- est inculcator of a faith in female puri ty. , As a daughter, she is the true light of home. The pride of the father often est is centered in his sons, but his affec tion is expended on his daughter. She should therefore be the sun and centre of all. !N0. 39. War Incidents. At the recent re-union of the officers of the army of the James in Boston, some interesting war stories were told. General Charles Devens said : ' ' " It was the good fortune of the troops oa tho north side to be the first to occu py Richmond, reaping indeed, what oth ers had sown, but it wag much to lift up on those rebel towers the flag of our Union, and to be the first to bring again that symbol of liberty and law to the stronghold of rebellion. Even here there wore heart that throbbed and eyes that were wot as they gazed upon its starry folds. I remember well the day after our occupation. I called upon a lady known to more than one officer of our army for the unshrinking loyalty which she manifested throughout the rebellion (an absolute prisoner in her house during part of the time) and as we stood upon the piazza which formed the river front of her beautiful mansion,' she pointed out the Newmarket road and told me how she had watched on the morning of our coming. ' All night, said she, we heard the sound of the retreating rebels, and we knew that our trials were' nearly over. With the hrst litrht we came out here to wait, t Soon we saw the skir mishers advancing along the hill ; iu a minute more, just as the sun was risiug, came the solid column, and above waved tho American flag. It was the first time I had seen it for four years, and, Gener al, I sank down here on my knees and thanked my God that he had permitted me to see it come again in triumph.' " Chaplain Trumbull said : - ' "How can we ever sufficiently honor the memory of those most uncommon soldiers who died for the government in our recent war with the rebellion. That boy of General Plaisted's and Major Adams' regiment, who fell in the skir mish line in that fight which General Foster and others will remember of the 2d of July, 1864, on the north bank of the Janft!8 Strawberry Plains, we call the fight. ' : ' " " Every man of our handful counted then as ten, and our brave boys knew it. As one of them fell mortally wounded, and as General (then Colonel) Plaisted saw him lying gasping for breath under the burning rays of that midsummer sun, he said to those near him, Take up Torthuker aud carry liiin back to ike hospital.' ' No; no,' said the dear sol dier, 4 that would only take two men away from the front, whero every man is needed now. I can just as well die here.' And there he died. Can we ever forget him ? It was about that time that on a Sunday, as I was moving among the company tents of my regiment, ' I found a soldier boy crying in homesick ness for lack of a letter from mother or sister. He seemed too boyish for a place in the ranks of a regiment in tho field. But only a few weeks went by before our regiment -was in battle line on the 7th of October, the fight in wku,h General Bir ney spent his last strength,' and as ikn enemy was pouring his fire directly into our faces, at scarce a pistol shot distance, that frail boy,-just in from a night of severe picket duty, while fighting man fully, was shot directly through the body and fell in liis tracks. Lifting himself up with full consciousness of his mortal wound, he uttered never a whisper or a groan, but tearing off his equipments to gain the breath he ' struggled for, he struggled for, he looked along the lines of unwavering veterans and called out in cheering, inspiring tones t Fire away, boys ! fire away !' and then dropped back to die his mission accomplished, his lost strength used for his imperiled country. Shall not such a man's memory be hon ored?" ' ' :I ; ;: 1 ' - Faithful to the End. When Sir Thomas Mooro lay in prison for con science's sake, he was visited by his wife, who was a somewhat worldly wise woman. " What, the goodyear, Mr. Moore," said she, in the dialect of those days, "I marvel that you, who have been hitherto always taken for a wise man, will so play the fool as to lie here in this close, filthy prison, and be content to be shut up thus with rats and mice, when you might be abroad at your lilerty, with the favor and good will both of the king and his council, if you will but do as the bishop and the best learned men of his realm have done ; and seeing you have at Chel sea a right fair house, your library books, your gallery, and other necessaries so handsome about you, that you might, in company with me, your children and the household, be merry I muse (wonder) what in God's name you mean here thus fondly to tarry."

Are youf -I A Berkshire County Romance. A young roan from Western Massachu setts, on his way to New York on one of the Hudson river boats, recently, made the acquaintance of a lady of middle age, who seemed much interested in him, and who at length told him that he greatly resembled a son of hen who had died not long ago. ' Before separating from him she gave him an urgent invitation to call at a certain number in New York, which he promised to do. On arriving at the place appointed, he found that it waa not tho residence of his fellow traveler, but of a friend of hers, who had a daughter of engaging appearance, but apparently in ill health. This young lady, it ap pears, was the betrothed of the young man who was dead. Owing to his strik ing resemblance to the deceased lover, our friend from Berkshire was received with great cordiality, and was urgently invited to call again, which he did, and before he left the city he was engaged to marry the young lady. Shortly after re turning to his home, word came that his affianced, whose health was greatly impaired, was much worse, and he re turned to the city, and remained until her death. This young lady had about thirteen thousand dollars in her own right, and during her sickness, with the free consent of her parents, she bequeath- , ed it all to her intended, and he has since come into full possession of the entire amount in government bonds. , Being a poor young man of excellent habits, this : legacy will undoubtedly be of great use to him, though it can poorly compensate . for the loss of one to whom he had be- come so deeply attached under such pe culiar circumstances. How to make Meetings successful. It was Daniel Webster, we believe, who, , in explaining the reason why clerical or- ; ators were less successful than political, ; said that no man could be eloquent who was penued up in a box like the major ity of pulpits. Half the power of any speaker depends on the place from which he delivers his address, and we are con fident that many of our political meetings are not as successful as they might be, from inattention to details. Whether a meeting is held in doors or out of doors, great care should be taken that there should be no impediment to the speaker's freedom of action, or to the ease with which his audience can hear him. In view of this, the Pennsylvania Republi can Committee have given advice which , js equally applicable elsewhere. We quote : , ; , " Have meetings in-dKrs if possible. , In holding out-door meetings, it is of the utmost importance to make it easy for the speakers as possible while addressing meetings. In erecting stands, place them if potissble, against a building, and in no case make them more than two feet in height from the gYound. Sound ascends, so the speaker requires to be elevated but little above the audience to be heard to the best advantage. Cover the stand with boards, allowing them to project in front the more the better as the pro- . jection acts as a sounding-board. Can vas absorbs and deadens the voice ; so -place none overhead or around the front ' ,of the stand. Do not board up the front, at least not more than a foot in ' height, as the speaker wants the free use of his arms. Have as few people on the 8tanl as possible, and none close around the speaker ; it obstructs the free circu lation of air. Much of the enthusiasm ;of a mention; ia often lost or entirely de stroyed by the exhausiKm. fj:he speak er, caused by the unnecessary physics effort he is obliged to make to overcome the difficulties of his surroundings, occa- v sioned by tho construction or position of , the platform from which he speaks. Low and narrow platforms are much the best , to speak from, while they are secure . against the accidents of break-downs, which too often result in the loss of life." Rigorous Aptrenticeship.- Few persons have looked into the lives of so many remarkabla men as I have, yet I cannot call to mind one of the acknow ledged kings of business who did not in early life serve a long, rigorous appren ticeship to some occupation akin to that which he afterwards exercised, and in ' which his great success was made. All my acquaintance . with business men teaches me that the fundamental secret of success is knowlsdgb real know ledge such knowledge as is only praeti- cally acquired by becoming practically familiar with methods and processes, such. -knowledge, in fact, as a man gets by tak ing hold of work, and doing it until he can do it easily and perfectly. I should be sorry to say anything to disparage our institutions of learning. Nevertheless, I feel confident that an intelligent youth, who remains at school until he is sixteen or seven teen.and then apprentices himself to a good trade, can get a better educa tion out of his shop (with an hour's study of principle in the evening) than it is possible to getinany college in existence that is to say, a better education for thit new and forming country, where, for at least fifty yean to come, no man can hope to play a leading part,' except in weilding material forces.
