Those nepiiblicaa Resolatlons. ' '
W give below, from the lat speech p
Judge Loi'GLAS at Galena, his account of
tba manner in which be obtained those reso
lutions which he read at tba debate in this
ciiy, and hid reasons for believing them ge
nuine. The reader will judge, after reading
t iid ataternent, of the fairneas and decencj
of charging Judge D. with "forgery I" Our
decided opinion still is that the resolutions
were passed just aa originally stated by
Judge D., and that the only perversion and
forgery" in the ease has bet n committed by
the Chicago Frew arui TiibuAt, which haa
substituted another set of resolutions for
those really passed by the republican con
vention of October, 1854:-.
I propose to call your attention to the
platform of principles upon which this- new
combination was gotten up by Lincoln,
Trumbull, Wentvrorth, Washburne, and
other men, to aboliti iniae the then two great
political parties of the country. 1 will read
the resolution of the Cong eaeional Con
vention held at iW It ford on the 80th of Au-goV-o44,
at which r" Wasitrrtir,,t?
eeivett the nomination for Congress in tbis
t let. luey are as follows:
Retolced, That the continued and Increasing aggres
sion or slavery in our country are destructive of the
brst rights or a tree pro le, and that such aggression
cannot be successfully resisted without the uoiied politi
cal action ot all good men.
B f ml ted That Ih cttiaens of the United State hold
in their hands peaceful, constitutional, and efficient re
medy against the encroachments of the slave power, the
ballot box, and, if ttiat remedy is boldly and wisely ap
plied, the principles of liberty and eternal justice wul be
Jtreotc-d, That we accept this issue forced upon ns by
the slave iower, aud, in defense of freedom, will co-operate
and be known as Republicans, pledged to the ac
complishment of the fidlowlng purposes:
Tu bnog the Administration of t!ie Government back
to the con'rol of first principles: to restore Kansas and
Nebraska to the position of tree Territories; to repeal
and entirely abrogate the fugitive slave law ; to restrict
slavery te those htaus in which it exists; to prohibit the
admission of any more slave Stales into the L'mon ; to
exclude slavery from all the Territories over which the
general government has exclusive jurisdiction, and to
resist the acquisition of any more Territories anlss the
introduction of slavery therein forever shall Lave been
Remolded. That In furtherance of these principle'
we will use such constitutional aad laaful means as
shall seem best adapted to their accomplishment, ana
that we will support no man lor office, under the general
or State government, who is not positively and fully com
milted to the support of these principles, aud whose per
sonal character and conduct is not a guaranty that he is
reliable, and who shall not have abjured old party alle
giance and ties.
BoUd That we cordially invite persons of al r-ironer
political parties whatever in favor of the oiject express
ed In Uie above resolutions to unite with as in carrying
them into tff?i-t
On motion of T J Turner:
Beoolved That the proceedings of this Convention be
Signed by '.he CI aruian and Secretaries and put ia all
tne parers or this Congressional District, and that the
pl erl in the S:at be requested to copy the same.
There you find the IJ'ack Republican plat
form as announced in the first Congressional
Convention held in tbis district by that par
ty. According to my recollection of the
fa tit, Ur. Washburne wag a candidate be
fore the Convention, and beins present, took
the stand immediately after the adop'ion of
the resolution and endorsed them. This I
presume he will admit, and I also under

find that I am chareed by the Abolition or 1
B!ak Republican' newspapers with forgery
not wiih an error, but with lorgery ana
that charpe is made because the resolutions
I read were not adopted at that paiticular
place. They seem t think that the place
where the resolution were adopted ia a
matter of vast Importance, but fl'ey d : Vf
y a word airout ih ir ir.er t-. (Lau ;htr )
Whin I put the direct questions to Mr.
Linco'n to ascertain whether he now stands
pledged to that cred to the unconditional
repeal of the fugitive slave law, a refusal to
admit any more a'ave State into the Union
even if the people want them, a determina
tion to apply the Wilmot Proviso not only
to all the territory we now have hut all that
we may hereafter acquire, he refused to an
swer, ami Lis followers s.ty in excuse uui
the resolutions upon which I based my in-'i
. y . . I
t rrogatorits were not adopted at the "right
tpot." (Shouts of laughter and applau.-e.)
Lincoln and bis political friends ate great on
"tpot. (Renewed laughter.) In Con
gtrss, as a representative of this State,
could not suppott the Mexican war or ac
knowledge his own country to be right in
the contest because be said that American,
b ond was not sl.ed on American soil in the
"right tpot." (That's so and lau-hter.)
Ana now he caoajot answer the questions l
put to him at Ottawa because the resolu
tions I read were not adopted at the " right
tpot.'" (More laughter.) It may be possible
tnat I was led into an error aa to the tpot on
wheh the resolutions 1 then read were
proclaimed, but I waa not, and am not in er
ror as to the fact of their foraiing the basis
of the creed of the Republican party when
that party first organized., . (Cheers.) 1
will state to you the evidence 1 had, and up
on which 1 relied for my statement that the
resolutions in question were adopted at
Springfield on the 5th of October, 18i4.
Although was aware that such resolutions
had been passed in this district, and'nearly
all the northern Congressional districts and
county conventions, I had not noticed whe
ther or not they had peen adopted by any
State convention. In IS06, a debate arose
in Congress between Major Thomas L,
Harris, of the Springfield district, and Mr.
Norton, of the Jo'-iet district, on political
matters-connected with our State, in the
course of which Major Harris quoted those
resolutions as having been passed by the
first Republican State convention that ever
assembed in Illinois., I knew that Major
Harris waa remarkable for his accuracy, that
he was a very conscientious and sincere
man, ana I also noticea tnat Norton am not
question the accuracy of this statement I
therefore took it for granted that it was so,
and the other day when I concluded to uae
the resolutions at Ottawa,. I wrote to Chasd
11 Lanphier, ed tor of the State Regitter, at
Springfield, callirg his attention to them,
telling him that I had been informed that
Major Harris was lying sick at Springfield,
and desirir g him to call upon hint 4 as
certain all the facts concerning the resolu
tions, the time and the place where they
were adopted. In reply, Mr. Lanphier sent
me two copies of bis paper, which I have
here. The first is the copy of the State Re
g itter, published at Springfield, Mr. Lin
coln's own town, oi the 16th of October,
1854, only eleven davs after the adjourn
ment of the convention, from which I desire
t . read the follewing :
"During the late discussions tn this city, Lincoln
saade a speech, to wl ich Judge Douglas replied. In Lin
coln's siech be took the broad groand that, according
to the Declaration of Independence, the whites and
blacks are equal. From this he drew the conclusion,
which he several times repeated, that she white man had
ne right to pass laws for the government of the black
nan without the nigger's consent. This speech of Lin
coln's wn heard and applauded by all the Abolitionists
assembled in Springfield. So sooa as Mr. Lincoln was
done speaking, Mr. Codding arose and requested alllthe
delegates to the Black Republican convention to with
draw into the Senate chamber. They did so, and after
long deliberation, they laid down the folio win; abolition
platform as the platform on which they stood. We jcall
the particular attention of all ear readers to it." I
Then follows the identical platform, word
for word, which I read at Ottawa. (Cheers )
Now, that waa pu lished in Mr. Linco n's
own town, eleven days after the Convent inn
was held, and tt ban remained on record up
to" thls day never contradicted. I sahmit
whether T was not authorized in supposting
when it Wan furniahed' tfi tne that it waa a
true teenrrj. " ( Certainly'yoa were," and

This was also published in Mr. Lincoln's
own town, and was not denied.
When I quoted the resolutions at Ottawa
and questioned Mr. Lincoln in relation to
them, he said that his name was on the com
mittee that reported them-, but he did not
aerte, or did not think he served, because
he was, or thought be was, in Tazewell
county at the time the Convention waa in
sesbion. He did not deny that the resolu
tions were passed by the Springfield Con
vention. He evidently thought that they
were, but afterwards his fi lends discovered
that they varied in some respects from the
re o ut ons pa.sstd by that Cm mention. He
evidently thought that they were, but after
wards his friends discovered that they vari
ed in some respects from the resolutions
passed by that Convention. I have shown
you that I had good evidence for believing
that the resolutions had been paused at
Springfield. Mr. Linco'n ought to have
known better; bat not a word is sai I about
his ignorance on the subject, whilst I, not
withstanding the circumstances, am aceustd
f otgeay But let that pass. They 'wish
to araw attention from the numerous revo
lutionary doctrines in their platform by
making an issue as to the tpot where these
doctrines were first declared. (Laughter.)
What difference does it make whether tnese '
resolutions were put forth at Springfield, at
Aurora, at Roi-kf.ird. at Bloonnnp-ion. or at
Galrbur;. provided they were the platform ! ted for thU resolution forbidding the admis
of the Black Kepulican ptrty, embodied Uion of any more slave States. The reso'.u-
their principles and set forth their senti-
rrhsots. ("Xone. They are humbug.")
The $pt where the principles were declared
has very little to do with the nature and cha
racter of those principles. (Laughter and
cheers. ') At Ottawa 1 tried to get an answer
from Mr. Lincoln whether he now stood
pledged to those Abolition doctrines. He
would not answer. I suppose that if you
attt-nipt to put qiest'ons to any of these
gent'enien now as to whether they are in fa
vor of the ur. conditional repeal ol the fugi
tive alLKw law, and in favor of preventing
dinii.ion of anv more .!ave State, even
if the people desire it, Ic, tHey will answer
that the resolutions of their party embody
ing these principles were not adopted at the
right ;(. (Great applaue ) Well, befote
I get through with them I iil show them
that the reso'uHors were adopte-i
nfeht wfjt. ("That a the time.

C nressioival D st
ict is concerned, were '
not the ri bolulions I have read adopted at
the riht spot when the Convention which
passed them nominated Mr. Washburne for
Congress by acciainniO'i ! Siuiilur resolu
tions were adopted in every county in this
I) strict, so I am informed. Mr. Waaliburne
embtaced these principles, was nominated
and elected by an overwhelming majority.
Hence let me ask you. Republicans, whether
those resolutions represented and nuw rep

When that Legislature convened they

i to be found in the following preamble and
resolutions, suotiutteu by nun on iae tita oi
February, 1S55. (See Legislature Journal,
pate 2oU )
Whereas, human slavery Is a violation of the princi
ples ot natul and revealed righu; and whereas, the
fathers ot the Revolution, fully imbued wiih the spirit of
t-iese priuci4es, declared frecduto- to be the inalienable
birthright ot all men t and whereas, Che preamble to the
Constitution of the Lulled States avers that tiiatiuitru
nient was ordained to establish justice, and secure the
blessings of liberty to oaraelves and our posterity ; and
whereas in fulheras.ee of the above principles, slavery
was forever prohibited in the old north-west territory,
and more reueutly in all that territory lying west and
north of the State of Missouri, by the act of the federal
government ; and whereas, the repeal of the prohibi
tion, last referred to, was contrary to the wishes of the
people of Ilhaots. a violation of an Implied compact,
long denied and held cacreo by the citiseus of the Uni
ted States, and a wide departure from the uniform action
of the general government in relation to the extension
ef slavery ; therefore,
Beootred. by the Jote ef BejtreoenUiHve,tho Senate
concurring therein. That our Senators in Congress be
instructed, and our Representatives ejstea, to intro
duce, if not oUierwise introduced, aud to Vote for a bill
to restore suck prohibition to the aforesaid territories.
to restore SUCB pn.mnmon iu ine atoresaiu territories,
and also to extend a similar prohibition to all territory
w hi jh now belongs to the I mtt-d States, or which way
uereaKer come under tneirjunsairiion-
RrmoUced, That our Senators in Congress be instruct
ed, and our Representatives requested, to vote against
tht admission of any State into the Union, the constitu
tion ot which does not prohibit slavery, whether the ter
ritory 014 ul which such State may have been formed
shall have been acquired by conquest, treaty, purchase,
or from original territory of the United States.
Ptolr,d, That our Senators in Congress be instruct
ed, and our Representatives requested to introduce and
vote f'-r a bill to repeal an act entitled "an art respect
ing fugitives from justice and persons escaping from the
sexvi e of their masters ; and, fulling iu that, for such a
modification of It as shall secure the right or haWa
corpus and trial by jury before the regularly constituted
authorities or the State, to all persons claimed as owing
service or labor.
Do you find in these reso'u'ions substan
tially the same principles unbodied in the
platforms 1 have been discusing? (Exact
ly.) First, you find it declared that a pro
hibition must be put n slavery in all the
ItriHortetf'bTlrro fjnited States norfh as
well aa south of the line of 30 deg. 30 min. ;
second, that slavery must be prohibited in
aR the territory then owned by the United
Steles. W.hatttext? The second resolution
provides that no more slave states shall be
admitted into the Union un er any circum
stances, and instructs their Senators and re
quests their representatives to vote against
the admission of a Stale if its constitution is
even silent on the subject ol slaaery, and al
so requires them to vote against the admis
sion of any State unless slavery is prohibit
ed by its constitution. I ask you whether
that resolution does not embody the most
odious anp unconstitutional provision in the
whole of this Black Republ:can platform,
which according to its supporters, was not
f course adopted fn the right spo; (I augh
ter.) The third resolution instructs their
Senators and requests their Representatives
to introdu e and vote for a bill te repeal un
conditionally the fugitive slave law, and,
failing in that, to vote for such a modifica
tion of that law as will render it useless and
inoperative, thus showing that they do not
intend to carry out that provision , of the
Const tution of, the United States, which
gays that fugitives f i om labor shall be de
livered up. They wish - that law repealed
S solute'y and in toto, and the Constitution
left unexecuted. But failing in that,' tbey
wish tho law bo modified a- to put it in aa
useless a forsq as-po-sible. Does not Love
joy's resolutions contain nesrly every one of
the odious and revolutionary features which
sppear in thai Black Republic i platforms to
i which. I have refei red. and which they now
dare not commit . themselves against, and
have not the courage to' stand up to, bat
; meanly try to evade- by saying that thia
1 phrtforaa or. that waa sot , adopted in - the
ripht epo.lv Cheers nd lanzhter.). Let
: as see what Aetien was taken nptm Levejoya
..5 t ,-i,.-r.f fir'... X-.
resolutions. On page 307 of the same jour
nal, you will find that on the 7th of Februa
ry the vote was taken on the first resolution,
to prohibit slavery south as well aa north o(
3G Jeg. 30 min., ia all the territory owned
by, or ever after to be acquired by the Uni
ted Stttca, with the following results: 41
affirmative votes, and 3 ! negative votea.
Those who voted in the affirmative were:
Messrs. Allen, of Madison. Babcock, Boal, Brown, ef
Knox, Courtney, Day, Diggins, Dunlap, Fuss, Foster,
Grove. Hackney, Henry, Henderson, Hills, Hulbrook,
Junes, Johns, Lamenec, Lee, Little, Logan, Lovejoy,
Lyman, McClure, McC'lun, Parks of Logan, Parks of
Will, Patton. Piockney, Richmond or Cook, Kiblett, Rice,
Sargeant, Strawn, Strunk, Sullivan, Swan, Waters,
Wheeler, Mr. Speaker.
Those voting in the negative were :
Messrs. Allen, of Williamson, Bennett, Baker, Brad
ford, Brown of Scott, Cline, Dearborn, Funkhouaer,
Greeg. Higbee, ilinch, Hosmer, liopkins. Holiday, Kin
ney, Martin, Masters, McCrillis, McClain, McDaniel,
Morrison, Moulton, Preston, Pursley, Rawlings, Rich
mond ot Montgomery, Richmond of Schuyler, fcaiiil, See
born, Tanner, Trapp, Walker.
I have made a careful analysis of that
vote and find, that if I am not mistaken, that
it was a Birict party vote between the Black
Republicans and the Democrats. .The res
olutions were adopted, the B'ack Republi
cans having a majority and being able te
out vote the Democrats. On the adoption
ot the second resolu ion the vote stood
thirty tbre" in the affirmative and forty in
the negativf, And I find that this difference
was caused by two or three old Whigs who
voted for the first, but became frightened
and could not swallow this dose offered them
by the party into which they had been be
trayed. Four-fifths of the Republicans vo-
tion for the repeal of the fugitive slave law
was lost yeaa 25, nays 47.
Now, what I wish to call your attention
particular to is the fact that on the night of
the day on which the Republican members
had thus voted for these resolutions, the
same men who did so assembled in caueus
and nominated Abraham Lin.o'n aa Uieif
candipate for the United Slates Senate.
Bear in mind that the Abolition platform
upon which he was then nominated, pledg
ed him t carry out if elected, the propoai
tion contained in it, those who formed it
having declared that they would vote for no
man for office, federal or State, unless he
Erst pledged himself to support and carry it
out. Mr. Lincoln was their caucus nominee
on this piriform, and on Hie next day, the
8th of February' they went into an election
lor Senator. If you will examine the rec
ords, you will fino that the very men who
voted for thee Abolition resolutions of Loye-
joy, v. tin tut two exception, votea tor un-
f t-.w CmtAr nr1 ihjls two sy.sntinnf
wei e men who Trumbull influenced aitd held
oir in order to prevent Lincoln's election and
s ip in as he did himself. (Caters and laugh
ter.) Thus you see that tbis Abolition platform
as substantially read by n e in Ottawa, is
naiied upon Mr. Lincoln and the Black Re
publican party, whose candidate he is. The
reroiuiions I last read formed the platform
of the Republican party, as voted for under
oath hy that party in the Legialature io
February. 1855, and the next day the very
members who voted for it voted for Lincoln
for the Senate, having pledged themselves
that they would not vle fur a man unlets
be endorsed every article in their creed aa I
read it at Ottawa the other day. D-jes this
not identify Mr. Lincoln with it? (" It
noes." and creat applause.) My object in
quoting thts platform at Ottawa was tor the
purpose of asking him whether he is in fa
vor of the unconditional repeal ot the Fugi
tive Slave law, and whether he is in favor
f excluding a Slate from the Union because
ahe applies with a Constitution recognizing
rlavery as the choice of her people. He
will not answer, and yet be received the
votes of the Black R-pubiicans in the Leg-i-lature
of the United States Senate, who
were pledged not to vote fur him utiles he
convnitted himself to these resolutions.
Your members voted for Lincoln, and un
less they got Mr. Lincoln's pledge first to
that abolition platform, they lia'.s fled their
pledges to you in voting for him. The
Representatives in the northern and Repub
lican counties were pledged in the same
war, and would hove violated their pledgee
in nominating and voting for Lincoln unless
be was committed to that abolition plat
firm, Why does not Lincoln avow tbis
like a man? ' How can a man of honor tj-y
to chet the people out of their votes by
concealing his sentiments when he knows
that somebody must be deceived after the
election? I do not went your votes unless
you believe that in the rutin I advocate those
principles which are consistent with the
pcac, harmony, prosperity, honor, and glo
ry of the Republic. (Three cheera.) I will
not aceept a seat in the Senate of the Uni
ted States if my voice is to be muzzled aud
I cannot carry out those principles which I
believe to be essential to the perpetuity of
the Government. (Applause.) Why can
nos these Black Republicans avow their
creed ? Why not procleim their principles?
Why noi have .hem wri ten in the skies,
that he who runs and looks may read and
understand them ? If they are confident
fiat their principles are right, and that their
ause is just, why not avow it? Why do
they try to dodge the issue by saying that
their principles were not adopted on the
. - - - - . . T . , .
I rigy t tpot ? (Laughter.) I intend to tpot
them before I get through With them. (lie-
them before I get through with them.
But I will show you that there is still
more evidence that Mr. Lincoln is coromitt
ed to this Abolition doctrine in its worst,
most odious, and most dangerous form.
When the Black Republicans assembled at
Springfield on the 16th of last June in S'ate
Convention to nominate a State t cket, they
also proceeded to nominate -Mr. Lincoln aa
their candidate for the United States Sen
ate in my place, and not only gave bim the
nomination, but passed a resolution declar
ing that he was their first, last and only
choice. The party waa bad off. (Laughter
and cheers.) They had but one man, and if
he died they would be without a represen
tative, for they had no other choice. (Laugh
ter.) Lincoln is their first, laat and only
choice, and oet he leaves the people in doubt
whether he adopts sny one article in their
creed. Is that not funny ? (Great laugh
ter.) A political party boasting that it is a
live pasty, claiming that it will elect the
next President of the United States, and
that it is the especial champion of freedom
and liberty, selects man as ' its first, last
and only choice for the United Mates Sen
ate who does not know, or wi'l not tell whe
ther he is for or against their platform of
principles. (Laughter and applause.) V hat
a party and what a candidate ? ' Is thia not
an enviable position for this great, univer
sal Black Republican party ? (Laughter.)
But when Lincoln got this flattering nomi
nation for the United States Senate, he in
stmily proceeded to read to the Convention
a speech which he had all ready for the oc
casion. It seems that he knew that he was
tn be nominated. The leaders had come to
the conclusion that it was best to carry out
the old bargain according to the terma of
which Lincoln and Trumbull were to be
be Senators, the former to succeed Shields
and the latte myself. Lincoln had been
cheated by Trumbull, and they were afraid
that if they gave him the go by be would
inform on them. Hence they thought it
beat to redeem their promise, and hence
Mr. Lincoln is their flrsUaat nd only choice.
(Laughter.) In his speech accepting the
nomination, he said : , ,
-Intnv oplntonHwmnot cease nntn a crisis thai!

the same condition in which our fathers
made it, to wit : divided into free Statea and
slave State. He says it must be all one
thing or all the other ; that is, the Statea
oust sll become free or become slave, or the
Union cannot endure. From bis argument
it appears that it is the great mission of the
Black Republican party to carry on a sect
ional warfare of the North against the South
until one section or the other shall be sub
dued, and all the States become free or all
slave. Now I suppose that is the mission
of the Black Republican party, does not
Mr. Lincoln by that proposition endorse ev
ery article in the Black Republican creed aa
I read it at Ottawa, and have read it here
lo-day. What is that creed? Let us read
it again and aee what it ia that they have
pledged themselves to do. First " to bring
the administr.lion of the government back
to the control of first principles and restore
Kanaas and Nebraska to the position of free
territories." Well, if Mr. Lincoln succeeds
in making the government all one thing or
all the other, why of course Kansas and Ne
braska will be fixed aa free territories. Sec
ond, " to repeal and entirely abrogate the
fugitive slave law." If Mr. Lincoln suc
ceeds in makin : the States all free a fugi
tive alave law will not be necessary. Third,
' to restrict slavery to those Statea in which
it exiats." If Mr. Lincoln succeeds in ma
king the States all free, the restriction will
be coroplet :. Fourth, " to prohibit the ad
mission of any more slave States into the
Union." Of course, if Mr. Lincoln succeeds
in carrying out his idea of uniformity, the
States will be all free, and any more slave
States impossible. Fifth, " to exclude sla
very from all the Territories over which the
General Government has exclusive jurisdic
tion, and to resist the acquisition of any
more territory unless the introduction of
slavery therein forever shall have been pro
hibited." If be establishes bis uniformity
principle and makes all the States free, sla
very will then be prohibited in all tho Ter
ritories ; and, also, the suppression of the
slave trade be ween the States, and the abo
lition of slavery in the District of Columbia
will have been accomplished.
Thus it will be seen that hia Springfield
speech expresses the principles of the Biack
Republican platform in another form of
words, snd endorses, by irresistable impli
cation, every one of the odioua principles
which he refused at Ottawa to answer whe
ther he would support or not The fact is,
that apeech, from beginning to er d, ia rank
unadulterated Abolitionism. (Applauae.)
Vngarles of Punch.
One particular dark, damp, dull, drizz'y,
disagreeable day, in the latter part of No
vember, A. I). 1812, a tall, gaunt, queer
looking customer, dressed in a blue coat,
me'al buttons, a brimstone colored vest, and
plaid pantaloons, with ca'f-skin terminations,
sat solitary snd alone, in s little room situ
ated ia a certain little tavern in Vine street,
in the city of Philadelphia. Before bim was
a little round table, on whose marble top
was not a little pitcher of punch, "acreech
ing hot," and a wine glass. The solitary in
dividual was York, nothing a , dear child,
and that was hia second pitcher full and niftb
hs second pitcher empty. One moment af
ter and you rouldn t have squeezed a drop
out ef either glass or pitcher, by a forty-two
pound hydraulic press.
York rang the bell. The waiter popped
his head in at the door.
"R ng, aa?"
" Of course I did ! Is it clearing off?"
"No, aa damp aa fogao thick, so, you
could ladle a 'tout 'i bea spoon Have
" More punch, an J strong !"
"Yes, sa; immediately sa."
The waiter withdrew, and in a few se
conds the third pitcher of punch stood be
fore our hero, who attacked it zealously.
Y'ork had just drained the Iat glass full from
the pitcher and waa beginning to feel glori
ous, when he aaw his own figure in a Urge
pier glass opposite. He rubbed bis eyes,
winked, coughed, started, winked, and rub
bed bis eyes again.
" Bah !" said he, "there's some fellow sit
ting right before me. This is a private
room, sir ! I engaged this room, sir, for my
sole accommodation." He waited a moment,
expecting an answer, but the reflection
merely started at bim and held its peace.
" I was srying, air, that thia waa my private
room mine, air!" cried Tork, fetching bis
voice an -ctave higher than before. No an
swer was made, and he rang the bell again
ingloriously. The waiter made his appear
"Yes! I did ring; didn't I ask for a pri
" I. sa this is a privste room, sa."
" It is 1 why there is a fellow aitti ig right
before me now, on the other side of the ta
ble ! rot bis impudence."
"Table? sa fellow? sa!"
" Y'es, there is well never mind. Bring
me some punch, and two glasses.
"Y'es, sa immediately, sa."
In a short time the fourth pitcher, with
two glasses, made its appearance.
Y'ork filled one of the glasses and shoved
it over the table.
" Will you drink, sir?" said he addressing
the figure in the glass. "Oh, you wont,
eh? Well, I wiil." And so be did. "Bet
ter drink, old fellow !" continued he, "your
liquor's getting cold, and you look aa if you
were fond of the thing." No answer being
returned, York finished the pitcher, and
ran? the bell again. In popped the waiter.
" To be sure I rang ! Didn't you bear the
" I did, sa,"
" Didn't I order a p-p-private room ? eh ?"
" Yes, aa this is a private room, aa."
"A ptetty private room this is! with a
fellow sitting opposite, that won't take a
glass of punch when it ia offered bim and
a r-red nosed man At that! Oh, well ne
ver mind; bring me in m-m more p-puncb,
and tumbler I I'll try him again, eh?"
Presently the pitcher, number five, with
glasses to match, was borne in with due state.
" Better t-t-try some, old boy," said Y'ork
to his double, coaxmgly. The reflex merely
looked good ntured, hut said nothing.
Well," continued York, with a aigh, "if
this isn't the m-most infameos well never
mind I'll drink the punch" and so he did,
every bit of it About five minutes sufficed
to end the pitcher. York rsng the bell, su
perfuriously. The waiter came again.
" Why, certain! Why ah-sh-shouldn't I?
Wherc'a the man who keepe thia p-p-
t Boss,saf I'll sen m, sa.
Shortly after, mine hoa, a quiet looking
little man, with a mottled, calico-patterned
face, and a ah'nir.g bald head, made his ap
pearance. "Wh-what's to pay?" demanded York,
rising and assuming an air of dignity.
" Five punches five levies, sir."
"There's the money, sir," said York,
forking out the coin.' ' " And now I want to

SaflerlAgs of Mmm of Genius.
Hon. Josep . Holt, Commissioners of Pat
ents, in reporting in favor of extending
Ooodyear'o India Rubber patent, gives tho
following interesting particulars of the pover
ty endured by Goodyear and hia family
while prosecuting bis experiments :
" From the first moment that tho eonerp
tien entered bis mind, until his com pie to
success embracing A period of from six
teen to eighteen years he applied himself
unceasingly and enthusiastically to its per
fection, and to iu introduction into use, in
every form that bis faithful jrenius could
devise. So intense'y were his faculties coa.
centrated upon it, that he seems to havo.
been incapable of thought or action upon
any other subject- He had no other ecu-'
pation, was inspired by no other hope, eher-'
ished no other ambition. He carried con
tinually about bis person a piece of India .
rubber, and into the ears of all who wou'd
listen, be poured incessantly the story of his
experiments and the glowing language of bio
prophecies. He was, according to tho wit
nesses, completely absorbed by it, both by ,
day and by night, purauing it with untiring
energy and with almost superhuman perse
ycrance. - :
Not only were the powers of his mind
and body thus ardently devoted to the in- ,
vention and its introduction into use, but
every dollar he had or could command thro
the resourcea of hia credit or the influences :
of friendship, was uncalculatingly cast into
that seething caldron of experiment, which
was allowed to know no repose. The very
bod on which his wife slept, snd tbe linen
that covered his table, were seized and aold
to pay his board, and we see him with hia
stricken household following in the funersl
of his child on foot, because he had no means
ith which to hire a carriage. Hia familw
had to endure privationa almost aurpassing
belief, being frequently without an article of '
food in their house, or fuel in the coldest
weather and, indeed, it is said that they
could not have lived through the winter of
1839 but for the kind officea of a few chari
table friends. They are represented aa ga
thering sticks in the woods and on the edgts
of the highways with which to cook their
mea's, and digging the potatoes of their litt'o
garden before :hey were half grown, while
one of his hungry children, in a spirit worthy
of his father, ia heard expre-aing bit thank '
that this much had been spared them.
" We often find him arrested and incarce
rated in the debtors' prison, but even amid
its gloom his vision of the future never grew
dim, his faith in hia ultimate triumph never
faltered. Undismayed by discomfitures and
sorrows which might have broken the stoutest
spirit, his language every wl ere and under
all circumstances, was that of encourage
ment snd of a profound conviction of final
sucresa. Not only in the United States did
be thus exert himself to establish and Apply
to every possible use his invention, but in -.
England, France and other countries of Eu
rope, he zealously pui-sued the same career.
In 1655 he appeared at the World's Fair in '
Paris, and the Golden Medal and the Grand
Cross of the Legion of Honor were awarded
to him aa the representative of his country's
invent ve genius. Fortune, however, whi'o
thus caresaing him with one hand, was at
the same moment amiting him with tho
other; for we learn from the testimony
that these brilliant memorials paased from
the Emperor and reached their honored re
cient, then the occupant of a debtor's prison,
among strangers and in a foreign land thus
adding yet another to that long sad cata
logue of public benefactors who have ateod
neglected and impoverished in tbe midst of
the waving harvest of blessings tbey had
oeaiowea upon their race. '
Remarkable Core of a Lunatic.
The Cleveland Herald on Monday last
contains tbe following very interesting ac
count of a aurgical operation upon a lunatio
which resulted in the entire restoration of
hia reason. The man was thrown from a
wagon, about five years since, fracturing his
akull against a fence stake, the injury bring
ing a violent derangement, which became
permanent. He waa taken to the Lunatic
Asylum, where he remained a conaiderablo
time, until be was discharged aa incurable,
and finally remanded to the county jail,
where he remained for about A year past.
Hia wife engaged tbe services of Dr. Thay
er, to attempt the cure of her un fortune
husband. After examining the case Die T.
found a portion of tbe skull much depress
ed, and resolved to remove it. On entering
the cell for that purpose, on Friday,, the maat
became greatly enraged, and poured out
volleys of execrations upon tbe doctor, aa
though be waa aware of the business ho
came on. At the order of the jailor, Fra
zee, the lunatic laid down on hia bed, when
be was immediately confined, and copious
doses of chloroform administered until ho
became perfectly insenaible. The depressed
portion of the skull forming a piees Alittlo
larger than a quarter of a dollar which hatt
boen preasing on the brain, was then takoav
out, and found to bave thickened cor aid era
bly on one side. The bead waa then bound
with a bandage, saturated with water, and
the patient left to recover from his stupor.
On Saturday morning he awoke, aroae Irons
bis bed and walked up and down tbe room,
perfectly rational He complained that tho
bandages, which for some reason that ho
d'dn't understand bad been put oh his head,
hurt bim, and asked the attendant if tbey
might be loosene J. As soon as relieved from
the pressure, he lay down on his bed and
fell asleep. On bis again awakening, ho
waa aaked if he would like his wife to see
him. She had a child but a few days before
his accident, and he now expressed a doubt
whether she would be Able to get out of
bed. On her entering, he was astonished to
find her so well after her recent illness. And
feared that her health would suffer from ex
posing herself so early. He asked after the
child and wished to aee it, but waa put off
with an evasive answer until U was tnought
advisable to explain' matters to him. Ho
then commenced talking of things that hap
pened five yeara ago, aa if having occurred
but yesterday. It was a long time before he
could be made awar of bis long illness And
insanity, and when at last convinced of it,
statea that he had no recollection of any
thing other than a misty kind of dream
about bia being aick. He recommended his
wife to go home to her friends until ho wss
well, as her stay in Cleveland would be ex
pensive, and talked perfectly rational on
other subjects. He is now in a fair way of
recovery, and will probably do well unlaw
inflammation should intervene.
