law, every principle so dear to us, and yet so
familiar and Commonplace that we are prone
to forget from whence they came, has travel
ed on the same difficult aud troubled pathway
to reach the present time. They come to us
sanctified by age, bearing about them the
scars and bruises of many a hard fought field,
and are entitled to our profoundest respect
and study, because they are right.
There is satisfaction in looking over the
history of the law, for it strikingly illustrates
the idea that a principle or a truth once
brought to light by thought and study is never
lost. It may be overpowered on the battle
field, and made to disappear for the time be
ing. It may be lost for the moment in the
din and noise of war's grand array, but it will
return again with renewed strength and cour
age. Men do not progress backwards. The
slave who has once tasted freedom can never
be re-enslaved. So we look upon the com
mon law as the treasure-house of thought,
the grand throne-room of knowledge and ex
perience. In it is locked and stored the
thought of a thousand years. It is all spread
upon the record, and not one principle has
been lost, and thus the common law becomes
the safe and satisfactory index to measure the
progress and development of thought.
Then arc you surprised that the student of
the law approaches this sanctuary of the hu
man intellect with feelings of awe aud rever
ence? Do you wonder that he looks upon it
as the repository of logic, the charmed home
of reason, and that in this majestic structure
he finds the elements of all history, science
and art, the product of all thought, and the
knowledge of all experience ?
And thus it is that the profession of the law
becomes a study wider and more expansive
than all others, for so complicated and varied
are the transactions of human affairs that the
successful elimination of a legal right, or the
enforcement of a legal remedy often brings
into requisition a knowledge of all history,
logic and rhetoric, of all science, art, theolo
gy, and medicine And the man who sits in
the halls of legislation to enact laws, if he
would do his work well, he must bring to his
aid a knowledge of all proceeding thought, he
must arrive at his conclusions by knowing
and profiting by all past experience, and then
his labors will not be in vain, for there is
sublime harmony in the domain of reason.
Did I say the law represented the proudest
development of thought? Look at its libra
ries scattered all over the civilized globe, with
more books than literature, the arts and
sciences, and all the professions combined
Enter into one of these sanctuaries of learn
ing. Here you will find deposited the results
of Roman civilization; the product of refined
Grecian speculation and ages of English
thought. Look at the army of devoted men
who have spent a whole lifetime of toil and
labor in perfecting themselves in any one of
the thousand branches of this noble profes
sion. Pardon me if I speak the language of
a humble dcciple when praising his lord and
master. And while I thus exalt this profes
sion, I say with equal freedom, that the
man who perverts it from its purpose is the
most contcmptable of all mankind.
Do not understand me to intimate that the
law is perfect, or that it cannot be improved.
There are many wrongs that the law docs not
yet reach, there are many injuries that are
not yet considered legal injuries, to be reme
died by legal act'on ; so far from this, it is
true, that the individual who takes the letter
of the law as the rule of his morality, is
I only say the law is as perfect as is our
thought, and as we improve our thinking, so
will the law improve. Much has been ac
complished, and much remains yet to be done,
and I look forward to the happy day to come
when we shall turn to the law, as it is taught
and practiced, and be ready to exclaim, "Thy
Throne is the bosom of God, and thy voice
the perfection of reason."
Thought is the engine that moves the
world. As in nature every motion bespeaks
the fulfillment of law, so every act in the
grand panorama of human life is the expres
sion of a thought, and so it ever has been,
and so ill ever be. Through all our busy
lives, from the cradle to the grave, in joy
and in sorrow, in anger and in gladness,
thought pushes forward and onward, and if
it were to compress into one sentence a rule
that would guide our wandering feet in the
pathway that would crown our lives with
success, I would say : Think good thoughts
and do good deeds.
k Life is made up of thought and labor, and
is a success or failure as we think. It is a
rapid running river, ever flowing onward to
the ocean of eternity, and every day we pass
into an undiscovered country. The banks of
the stream are bordered with flowers, beauti
ful scenery enchants our view, and we sail
on weaving the warp and woof of life, to
the sound of sweet music, doing good deeds,
making the sunshine brighter for our pres
ence, relieving the weary and the heavy
laden, comiorting the sick and the distressed,
giving hope to the despondent, joy to the
broken-hearted, faith to the faithless, living
not for ourselves alone, but for the good of
all mankind, or we are shipwrecked by the
storm among the rocks of vice, dishonesty,
selfishness, or hatred, our pathw ay is lined
with thorns and thistles, wc turn a deaf ear
to the pleadings of poverty and distress, and
retire within our own selfishness, cold, cal
culating and indifferent, and trade upon the
blasted hopes of our fellow-travelers, and
all this simply as we think.
We create a world within ourselves full of
lieauty and harmony, or distorted with jarring
.. - - ■> ». »
tiisconl,- and darkened with evil simply as wc
will. We are the arbiters of our destiny,
We work out our own salvation.
1 bought is worship, thought is prayer; or
it is sacrilege, corruption and death, just as
we make it.
Then give birth to a noble thought. _
will bring with it joy and gladness ; it will
create a new world for us and fill it with
beauty ; it will expand and enlarge our souls.
We do not think. We have the machinery,
beautiful, mysterious, Divine, but do not use
it. We fill oui - minds with puny, trifling
thoughts; we catch butterflies and build cob
houses, and idle away our time in a sort of
nonentity, when we have within us the power
to revolutionize the earth.
Of the myriads of men who have peopled
the earth since the morning stars sang to
gether, how little do we know of the lives
and thoughts of each. They fall out by the
wayside and the grave closes over them, and
still the ocean of humanity sweeps unheeding
on, tramping over their ashes, aud they arc
unknown, unhonored aud forgotten. Only
here and there one has achieved immortality
by his thought. The world's thinking is done
by a few, while all are gifted with this sub
lime gift. Then why not think, and thereby
become a power among men.
Thought, is the vanguard of progress. All
our creations are first pictured in the brain
Every step forward in the toilsome march of
humanity towards perfection comes from
thought. Faith has its prophet and its seer,
religion speaks the language of inspiration,
and bids us hope, skepticism fills our souls
with doubt and unrest, fiction creates a world
of its own and peoples it with visions of
fancy, poetry utters the voice of harmony
and song, metaphysics deals in abstractions,
and loses itself in mist and fog, the law has its
language and its servants, but the high priest
of nature, the man who reveals the law and
and the rules of life is the thinker, anif think
ing bespeaks the divinity of the soul, and he
approaches nearest the divine who think«
most and best, and labors hardest for the ele
vation and emancipation of mankind.
And so thought shall go forward and om
ward in its majestic march through the ages,
until its mission is fulfilled; solving the mys
tery of life; dispelling every doubt; illumi
nating the globe with a blaze of light that
radiates to heaven ; visiting the spheres of
endless growth; shining into the darkness;
explaining the miraculous and the mysterious;
perfecting the reason and the judgment ; re
fining taste and culture; beautifying the
mind ; ennobling the heart ; grasping all
knowledge; educating the conscience ; erect
ing a morality that shall know no vice; beau
tifying the religious sentiment; causing its
voice of faith, prophesy and prayer to speak
the pure language of the soul ; giving utter
ance to a sumlime trust that knows no fear;
robbing the grave of its victory by making it
the gatew'ay of life ; establishing a Christian
unity that shall embrace all mankind ; show
ing all discord to be perfect order, and all
seeming evil universal good; seeing in the
operations of nature, in the endless forms of
life, in every aspiration of the human heart,
in every scintillation of intellect, in the rag
ged rock, and in the tiny flower, the fulfill
ment of an Infinite law, until mysterious
thought, crystalized and personified, shall be
come a spark from thcOmnicient mind, whose
voice is the harmony of the world.

WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY.
Washington, May 25.— Coghlan denies his
alleged sympathy with the Greeley move
ment. All three California Representatives
are strongly for the renomination of Grunt.
Gerritt Smith's letter is for Grant uncondi
tlonally, aud Wendell Phillips' for Grant
rather than Greeley. These, together with the
overwhelming defeat of the Greeley can
didate for Mayor of Petersburg, Va., by the
regular Republican nominee, have seriously
discomposed the supporters of the Cincinnati
movement. The revenue reformers seriously
talk of nominating Adams, in anticipation
of his endorsement by the Democratic Con
The Senate, at 9 o'clock this evening, after
a continuous executive session of more than
nine hours, by the requisite two-thirds vote,
advised the President to negotiate an addi
tional article to the Treaty of Washington
on the basis recently proposed by the British
f overnment, though in form somewhat dif
erent from It, but not altered in principle,
the amendment being designed to secure a
reciprocity of obligation on the part of both
governments without detriment to either, and
without placing the United States in an atti
tude receding from their position as if in
compliance with the requirements of the
British government. The action of the Sen
ate to-night is kept more than ordinarily pri
vate, as if the Senators had been placed
under additional obligations of secrecy, but
there is no reason whatever to doubt the truth
of the foregoing statement.
The President and Secretary Fish were to
night officially advised of the action of the
Senate, and a telegram was sent by the latter
to Minister Schenck acquainting him with
the facts for the information of the British
government It is expected that on Monday
a response will be received from London,
when the Senate M ill ratify the additional ar
ticle to the treaty.
The Commissioners appoiiited by San
Francisco in opposition to the cession of
Goat Island arrived here to-day. They are
D. C. Macruer, J. Sneath, Cof. Aldrich, T.
G. Phelps, M. G. Upton, Jas. Otis, C. F.
Hopkins, and Judge Hagar. They had fa
vorable interviews with the Senators to-day,
and will see the President on Monday. Thé
commission consider the consummation of
the scheme improbable at this session, though
» the pressure for Use passage of tl e bill is
potential. Tlu- Senate cannot read, the bill
this session. Macruer and Sneath will at
tend the Boston meeting of the Atlantic &
Pacific Railroad Company on the 30th inst
Their colleagues will remain until after the
adjournment of the House.
The civil appropriation bill gives $410,000
for the Mare Island expenditures ; also, ap
propriations for a lighthouse and for signals
at Point Fermin, Point Hueneine, Piedras
Blancas, Point Reyes, and the entrance to
Carquinas Straits, $135,000; also, $41,250
for surveying the eastern boundary of Cali
The Senate confirmed Frank Wolcott, U.
8. Marshall for Wyoming Territory ; Robert
H. Milroy, _ of Indiana, Superintendent of
Indian Affairs for Washington Territory.
The tariff tax bill, as amended by the Sen
ate Finance Committee, proposes that the act
take effect on the first of July, instead of
January. The Committee exempt cotton
machinery from tax ; the House free list is
stricken out and a new free list inserted con
taining the principal elements of both the
House and Senate free lists and adding the
book paragraph of the House. It also in
cludes all horses and cattle. The section
providing for the free admission of material
used in ship-building and equipment is altered
so as to apply not only to wooden sailing
vessels, but all vessels, and the vessels re
ferred to are allowed to engage in coasting
three months in the year instead of two.
The duties on salt used in curing fish are to
be remitted. The Committee, while it has
fixed a consolidated tax on spirits of 70 cents,
recommend that section 28 of the existing
law be so amended that the stamp act be ten
instead of twenty-five cents. The bill as now
reported provides not only for the repeal of
the special tax iind the tax of $4 per barrel
imposed by section 59 of the internal revenue
act, but also for the repeal of the tax on sales
on wholesale and retail dealers, and the tax
on rectifiers of SO cents on each barrel pro
duced in excess of two hundred barrels. The
tobacco section, imposing a uniform tax of
24 cents per pound, goes into effect on the
first day of July next. The Committee
strike out the House provision repealing cer
tain stamp taxes and substitute a section re
pealing all the stamp duties imposed by
schedules B and C of the internal revenue
act of June, 1864. The tax on sales of ves
sels is repealed, The President is directed to
reduce the number of internal revenue dis
tricts'to 60 prior to January next.

wholesale and retail dry goods store, fell this
afternoon with a tremendous crash. The
occupants hearing the crash escaped to the
rear. Two women with a trundling baby
wagon on the sidewalk in front of the store
were caught by falling walls. One of the
women and baby were killed, and the other
had both of her legs broken. The loss is
estimated at $40,000. The disaster was caused
by undermining of the walls by workmen
