[From the Michigan Temperence Advocate.]
THE SOLDIER'S VOW.
One bcatitilul Indian summer day, in the 1
autumn of 1814, a stranger appeared in the I
atrects of Hanover, N. H., w hose garb be-
epokc the utmost poverty and destitution. ,
As he staggered along, he was surrounded
by a crowd of village boys, who amused'
themselves by insulting him with coarsejesis
and personal , indignities . Ho bore their J;
abuse with exemplary patience, nnd begjjtdl
them to wail till he felt a little better, and
he would sieg them a fine song. His voice
was thick with unnatural excess, and he was
too weak to protect himself from the rude
jostling of the crowd; yet he smiled on his
tormentors, and exhibited ro other sonsc of
his helpless condition than a look of grief
and shame which, despite his efforts an I
smiles, would occasionally overspreid his
countenance. Late in the afternoon, the
tvriter, then a student, passed him in compa
ny with n friend when our attention was ar
rested by a voice of unusual power and beau
ty singing that favorite national song ofj
France, 'La Parisienne.' As he proceedod,
a great number of students from the college i
gathered around him, and at the conclusion
an involuntary expression of delight broke up
on us from the entire mass. He was enthu
siastically encered, and afterwards the Mar
ecllaise was frequently called for. The same
rich, r.lerir voice rang cut with wild melody
in the very words which are wont l arouse
the spirit of the French soldier to frenzy.
The admiration of th? poor inebriate's audi
tory was now raised to the highest pitch.
Despite his taitered and filthy garments, his
squalid beard and brimless hat, now that the
fumes of liquor had subsided, his form ap
peared symmetrical and manly, and his face,
glowing wi'.h the sentiment of the patriotic
song and flushed with excit inent at the un-
expected praise he was winning, assumed sn
expression of intelligence and joy that beau
tifully set on" his really tine features. 'What
p and who is the stranger!' was the universal
S inquiry.
Hit singing is incomparable, and his
French and English are bet!) faultless,"
j)t 'Yes,' said lie, dropping his eyes, and, I can
give you German, or Spanish, or Italian, as
'" w ell as Latin aed Greek either, he added oare-
leeely. In reply to many questions that
wi were showered upon him with the eoio he so
tiv much seemed to need, ha tt length said in a
a 4 sad lane, and slowly endeavoring to pusk kis
way through ilia crowd. 'Gentlemen, I am
a jor vagabond entirely unworthy year kind
pympiithy. Leave inc to my rsga ft wretch
edness, hbiI I w ill go my way ' Rul our u
riosity was too much excited to allow this,
and n in id loud cheers we escorted him 'o s
room w here ho was furnished with w.ter and
on entire goud suit of clothes, the barber's
art was put in requisition, and after an in
credibly short time, he rc-nppeared upon the
college steps smiling and bowing gracefully,
a man of as fine appearance and noble bear
ing as ever eyes beheld. The delight of the
crowd at this transformation was intense, and
repeated shouts rent the air.
Give us La I'srisenne,' echoed from all
sides, and as soon as silence could be obtain
ed, again that clear, rich voice uttsred those
inspiring words,
'People Franca!, people rl braves,
La Liberie rouvra too bras.'
He was conducted to toe spacious chapel,
and there for two hours he held tn audience
of one thousand people spell-bound, by one
of the most interesting autobiographies that
was ever our lot to hear. Boin in Paris, of
wealthy parents, he '-ad in early life been
educated at the University of Wittenberg, and
received the master's degree. He soon after
joined the fortunes of Napoleon, nnd with the
rank of Lieutenant, was with him during rll
liia campaigns in Egypt, In Italy, in Austria,
in Russia and tit Waterloo. He had been
engaged in mure than seventy btUl?t, and
Lit description of places and cities were ex
pressed in choice; ami graphic terms, nnd on
being compared with history, were found to
correspond in every particular. He related
mar.y unwritten ami curious incidents in the
life tt Napoleon, which had come under his
observation, and finally closed with a touch
ing account of liis own career after the battle
cf Waterloo, in the terrible rout that follow
ed that memorablo event. His detachment
was ci.ased hy e body of Prussim hussars,
a;:d becoming .-(-altered in the nighl lie wan-
dered for three d i;'a in the woods jnd by pla
ces without food or drink.
The chase being at lergth given over, the
for Frenchman sank down weary and sick
w illi his Wounds, and ready to die by the road j
side. A humane Dutch girl, discovering I im j
in this situation, brought Mm refreshments
ni.d Cardials nnd among the la'ter a flask ofj
brandy. 'Heret'euiu the olo soldier, 'was the
beginningjaf my woes. That angel of mercy,
with the best of motives, brought me in that
Buck a deadly foe, which was to prove more
potent for evil to me than ail the burning
toils of the Egyptian campaign or the intoler
able frosts of Russia: more fatal than the
cannon at seventy battles, which kindled in
tne n thirst mors insatiable thin that which
forced open my veins on the desert hands ol
the. List. Till that day, I hud never tasted
Strong drink. I had uttered o VOW ill luy
youth to abstain from it, and to that vmv, I
owed my life: for not one of all my comrades
vho indulged in the use ofil survived the
horrors of the Egyptian campaign.
Hut as I luy In anguish looking for death j
nnd roctnoiitarilg expecting Ins approach, a j
sweet face appeared to me wearing an ex
pression of deep pity nnd sympathy for my
iu0eri 4(4, and ( could but accept, .without
inquiring, whutever she gave. She gently
raised my head and .viped with her kerchief
:ho dampness from my brow, an I a lministerd
sd the cordial to my lips. It revived mj I
uoked around, my courage, my loe of life re
urned. 1 poured forth my griitiludj in bur
li Og wolds, and ailed down '.he blessings of
Heaven upon ncr. Ignorant of what it was
hut had so suddenly inspired me, as soon as
n spirits (lagged I oalled for more. I drank
iguiu and again for three weeks her love
ootlied mc, and her Vind hand administered
to my wants.
As soon as my strength was suftVientiy re
:overed, fearing thai some enemy might still
ie lurk'iig near, I hade her adieu, with many
.hanks and tears, sought the sea-side, and
Niibarked as a common sailor on the first ves
lel that offered, nd have followed the sea
;ver since. My futu! thirst has ever acconi
nuuied and cursed me; in port and on dork
his foe has debased me, and kept me from all j
chance of promotion. O, how often have I, j
in the depth of my heart wished I had died
pn the field of Waterloo, or Lreathcd out my j
life in the arms of my gentle preserver. Six i
weeks ago, I w as wrecked on the packet j
Bhip Clyde, on the coaat of New Brunswick.
I wandered on foot through Canada and New j
Hampshire, singing for pennies, or begging
for bread, till I met your sympathy to day.
HOW these college halls and this noble band
of student recall to roy reco'lcclion the j
scenes of former years."
The emotions of the stranger for a moment
overctpj his voice, when he resumed, the
tears still coursing each other down his i
cheeks, I know nut why God should direct j
my steps hither; but, gentlemen, this is the
beginning of a new lifo to me, and li? re in
His pretence, and in that of these witnesses,
1 - vear as I hope lo meet you in Heaven,
never to taste another drop of alcohol in any
form again.
Prolonged snd deafening c'.uers followed
these words, snd I noticed many a moist eye.
A eollcoti was immediately undo and more
than fifty dollars were put into his hands
As he ascended, the coach to take his depar
ture, he turned 'o the excited multitude who
surrounded him sud said. It is but justice
that you should know my name. I am Lieu
tenant L amies, a nephew of the great Mar
shal Lannes. May God bless you all farewell.

MUCH MONEY FOR LITTLE
WORK.
Speech of Senator Senator Gillette, of Conn.
AGAINST
INCREASING THE PAY OF CONGRESSMEN
AND JUDGES.
In lha Senate, on Thursday, Jan. II, Mr.
Badger's bill to increaae the compensation
of the Judges ol the Supreme Court of the'
United States, nnd Members of both Houses
of Congrcaa, being under consideration, Mr.
GiLLETTH.of Connecticut, delivered the fol
lowing lueid and forcible speech against that
iniquitous measure:
Mr. PRLSiDttt: This I regard as a vital,
question at least as near the vital as the
pocket and having but a short time to forve
in the Senate, the few remarks whih I feel
it my duty to oll'ei .ifthey should have no oth
er merit, will have that, I trust, of disinter-'
t'stedness, and an eye hingle lo the public
interests. While 1 fully appreciate the ex
panded and liberal views of the distinguished
Senator who intrcduced this bill, and IB;
Credit him t Itrgt measuro of patriotism in
the direction of public expenditure his car
dinal principle appearing to be, the greater ;
the disbursements the more public prosperity '
I must dissent from the proposition now
j before us. To increase the pay of Cbngfgie
(tneri, would, in my op'nion increase thedis-'i
tempers of the Republic, and the dangers 'i
which threaten its existence. It' the pres-'i
ent Compensation were really inadequate to'l
, the value of the services renderedjif the na- I
tion were actually receiving more than an I
equivalent for what it. pays its Con jresaion-' I
aljscrvants then, Sir, the proposition would ! I
commend itself to my cordial and earnest ' i
support; for I am no disbeliever in the !)i-i I
vine declaration thut the "laborer is worthy')
ot his reward" that is to say, if he earns I
it. and do not approve, any more than the j
honorable Senutor from Worth Carolina, of . I
one manor set of men, living on the unre- j
quitdd, coerced labor of another man, or set ; i
of men. Such are not rny idea? of justice or r
of honor, Against euch wrong doing, such i
extortion, such consummate injustice, the I
impartial Father of men has published his nb- j
horrence in threatened woes, from which Iji
am as anxious to escape us that Senator can '
be, The only true and safe rule is, do just-1 I
ly, and "render to all their dues." This IsH
the proper principle on which to determined
this question, as I. think, snd not os the Sen-1
utor insisted the other day, the cost ofliv-l
ing here in Washington, which is more or' t
less according to individual habits, tast'it't
end preferences, the mode ol living,the quan-i I
tity ar.d quality of wino and stronger li-1
quors which may be thought hy some to sli-' i
iiiulute their patriotism, and other vulgar and ; d
pernicious indulgences of depraved and grov- i
cling ippetites. The truth is, n man may I
spend more or l:ss here, ns els.'where, just ns t
be chooses, so that we have no sife criterion! '
in this direction. When we consider the:
matter of compensation for serv ces render- j i
ed, the amount actually earned is thu main ' I
subject for consideration, nnd this should de-i I
termine this question; for I maintain that;'
Congressmen, like their constituents, should 1 1
"eat their bread In the sweat of their brow," ; I
in obedience to the "higher law," or d j with- , i
out eating, ifthey will not resign and give I
place to belter men. The question then re-; I
solves itseif into this: Are Congressmen i
paid, ulready, us muc ias they earn! muitll
say, I think they arc; the people hardly re- I I
ceive, In return, their money's worth. Mr.
President, I take no pleasure in Baying it, I
but I have sometimes thought that the peo- I
pie are nfllicted with a large number of un-1
profitable servant present company ex- i
ceptcd, of course, Sir who, should they es i
cape that "outer dnrkness" which awaits in- I
corrigible transgressors, will owe their de- j
i! vera nee, not to any salvation obtainable i j
from such acts as the atroeitus Fugitive act I i
ofthe Thirty-Fi'st Congress, or th? pcrfidi-,f
ous Nebraska Kansas act of the Thirty -Third j
The people, in some quarters, have roncluded i
that such services are quite too dear at eight i
dollars u day, and do not rare to have any ' I
more such, even at that price, judging Irom ' I
the bolt of doom which hut fallen upun so ' I
many of their unfaithful servants, nnd which I :
overhangs so many msre. Ii Congressmen
would have better pay, let them earn it fairly i I
and honestly, by doing belter work. Btpe-'ll
dally unpropitious ii the present 'time for 1
preferring such a claim so soon after the I
audacious und execrable nttempt "to cruh i
oul the spirit of liberty" from the hearts of (
the people, nnd the sublime and beautiful IM I
lustration of "popular sovereignty" in the ro-
cent elociion in Kansas, where, us wo are in- i
formed by the Governor of '.lint Territory, and i
others, populsrsovereignty had to run utvayil
from his own ballot-boxes, in order to save j I
his democratic Highness from the b'udgenns, j t
bowie-knives and pistols of an irruptive slave
holding sovereignly. What (utindution cairl
Congressmen have of an equitable claim for I
eight dollars a day even.duriug the first month I
o! each session, spent, as it uniformly is,not'
so much in the service of the country as In
holiday festivities and amusements! Little.' I
indeed, earned during one-third of this srs- I
ion, an I twelve dollars a day this bill pro
poses to pay forthat. I will not be a party i
to any such agreement. M
Moreover, Mr. President, I do not under- I
j stsnd, from any quarter, that the people now
I Bad the least difficulty in obtaining Con-!
gressional servants at the present price of ;
their service. The trouble rather is in ma
king a selection among tbe multitude nt at
pliant. Even the honorable Senator him-'
self, who introduced this bill, did not intimatt
any such embarrassment io North Carotins,
nor appear to apprehend Ike letst danger to j
that venersble State from the lack ol good '
and true men, like himtelf, to defend the.
rightt and maintain her honors an the floors
of Congress; and, sure I am, in that part of j
the country in which I am acquainted, there!
is no want of men, "nothing loth," to be ptr
tuadod to itrve their dear country in Una
Capitol for tbe present compensation. There ;
can be no doubt on thfa point every Seru
tor knows there are public spirited, self-saving
patriots enough in all Htatea and Ter
ritories who, if unable exactly to agree with
the eld Latin poet in the stnlimeat, Du'.c
et decorum jo palria mnri it is pleaasit'
and honorable to die for one's couturv
ft very willing to adopt the sentiment with
the slight change ol a aingle word, si that it'
w ill read: Vu ce et decorum pre fttrii vi'cere
i'. id pleasant and bonertblt 1 9 'ivi for oneV
country. Hence, Sir. ths preposition be- I
ojs the Sensts eems 'o me n'.irely uncnll-'
ed for sud supercrogetory. While the supply j
to greatly outruns tin: demand, I cannrl,
nndertlaiid the stulctmaiiship, mueh ess the
economy, ol such t proposition. Why, Sir,'
should a man enter a shop in this city, and
strangely insist on paying the shopkeeper!
fiity percent, more than his pries forcer
lam goods, of which ho bus a superabundant '
supply more than he con ever tei1 he
would be thought s little muonttruch, and a!
candidate tortile insane naylum. It is not'
equally irrational, grutuitoip, snd unwise to
propose lint the people of thi "effbntry, now
bowed down to the earth by financial cmbar-1
raetmenll, should pay their Congressional'
torrents nTty per cnttini more than they mv I
receive fur their attendance here, when the
aspirante are already o plentiful and persis- I
tent ei to be about ss ciuroorctn and Iflfloy
hue; it the bawling heckmcn tbtt Infettourl
railway stations! It the dear people will I
July patronize their coaches, theyjwill be ve
y well satisfied with forty cents a mile for
rave I and eight dollars a djy for service.
Shall we offer them more, and thus multiply
he uumber and intensify their avidity) 1
lave another objection to this bill, which, to
ne, is insurmountable. It ignore- ii r '
nequality und glaring injustice we nil ex il
n the preient miL-age of members pi n 1
;ress, and admitted by every man whom '
lave ever heard exnress his views on '.he tul) . '
ect, except the Senator who introduced this i
nil. lie said, If I recollect aright, that it is
ust. entirely just, as it is. Ltt us sen how f 1
t operates. Those Congressmen from the j I
emote parts of the country actually receive i 1
tome thousands of dollars more than members I
iving near, and that merely for a few days j I
xtra travel in the public service. For ex-;1
imple, the .Senctoi living in the remotest I
tart of the most distant State receives as j
niletge for one seas'. on of Congress $0,482,- i
10, while the nearest Senator receives but
33,60. Now, it is well understood that the :
ictus I expense of the journey in each case is i
tutu pittance of the suuu received so that , i
lie most d stunt member receives one hun
Ired and sixty-three tiai"9 more at mileage
ban the nearest member, ami all for a lew
lays, perhaps weeks, of extra travel. The
i u in e proportion holds good lor nil iiiteruie- I
liute distances. Thut, by this exorbitant I I
nilage, established at a time when the ac- 1 1
nal expenses of travelling vere very great,!
lompared with tho priiscoji redi ced rites, (
vere ubsorbed nl t lie last station of the proo
int Congress 151,tiG2,oJ, the benefits of '
vhich accrued to the members according to I
heir respective distance from the sea', of I
3overnment, Now, Sir, If this is justice, !(
vhut is injustice! The rotten borrough tye
.em of Great Britain, of which we heard so
nuch a few yeart tinct.hatdly paralleled the
'otten mileage system o! the United States.
Hud there been coupled with the proposition,
lOfore us a plan to reduce and equalize the
nileage in such a manner os to do justice to
ill concerned, it would have been Compart
ivory unobjectionable. Had the distinguish
d Senator, with the advantages of his emi
tent nbilitiet tnd ripe experioncn in the pub
ic councils, instead of bringing forward this
imposition for the benefit of Congressmen
Itderttkoil to devise some plan lor the alle
iution of the country from its financial dif
le.tilties, and brought in e bill to help the i
tockets of the people instead of those of Con- I
rrOttmen, it would have eviucd a patriot- i
Em and fidelity worthy of its distinguished
ource, and won the favorable consideration '
if all who are truly concerned for the public I
n'.erests. But the people are little thought i
if, except in the mailer o! their votes, while i
heir servants are occupied with tcbtmet to '
'ealher their own nests, and put money into i
heir pockets. The compensation of Con-
'ressmen and of the Judges of the Supreme i
fjetirt of the United States is now from one (
Kindred to four hundred per cent greater than
hat of our Stale Legislators and Judges.
t would really seem, Sir, if n State legis-
ator can"livc on Irom fi to S$4 a day, that i
i Congressman might possibly eubsist on $3 i
i duy, with his exborblttnt mileage, nnd some
en or twelve hundred dollars as the value I
if Congressional books received for his pri-. I
'ate library, lo eke out his expenses; and if j I
i Statu Judge can buflle famine with the ma-; i
erial aid of $l!,000 or $2,oOO a year, a Uni- 1 I
ed States Judge might possibly keep the I
volf from the door with the help ol $4,000 ' i
ir $4,500 a year. But if I am mistaken in 1 1
hese suppositions, sure I am, Sir, the direct ' i
ind ultimate tendency of this measure would!
ie to clothe this Government with tddilinnal
senuquence in the eyes of the country, and
proportionally to belittle and disparage the
Stale Government j to rear a towering giant1 ,
aere, and make abject dwarfs there. I lojk i
with no complacency upon the aggrandize- U
ment of the Federal Government, but with j j
11. -ad ai d dismay. Ita powcra and influence j
ire already fearfully great, and should bedi-i
uialebcd rather thanjnereased. Its Execu-1
live branch is already well nigh absolute,!,
tnd it quick to seize upon any semblance ofj
a pretext to exhibit its mighty pov.crs oreri
the State, by ordering the milinry force at
itt commtnd to outrage ana dragoon Iheiu in
to submission to its imperious will. Far, far
be it from me, Sir, to do anything calcula
ted to cloihe this overgrown and menacing
gianl with Btronger attractions snd s might
ier hi nun, lest he absorb and centralize with
in himself all that remains of the appropri
ate authority and influence of the Slates, and
accomplish the fell purpose which, i n his
haughty arrogance, hat been boldly declared,
und "crush oul the spirit of liberty" from the
hearts of the people. 8uch tre, brlely, my
renon for the vote which I snail gut on
'this bill.
General Scott on the Eastern War.
The Washington :, dent of the
Charleston Mercury writ's at follows:
"I had recently the pleasure of hearing
Ihe cr.ticisoi of General Heoit on the svar in j
the Crimea. 1 look upon Sou ns one of tho,
greatest captains of the age, and I listened
with great interest to his ideas. He says the !
atlit committed a great blunder in uelayipg
Ihe alia -k up in S'bjstopoln long is Ihey
did; that, irnrneH a cly alter the raisin? ol
Ihe siege o' Siliatris, they ih uld have ht
tacked Sekaatop il, ut wh eh time there was
a comparatively small force in the Crimea;
thst the allies cannot ttkt Sevastopol uo'e-s
they receive reinforcements, givinjr, th"in a
superiority of lorce to ihe extent of from
thirty to fifty per cent; that the Russifn reg.
ular soldiers are the best in the world lor de-,
fence; they never fly, but perish unless order
ed to retreat. He thinks the allies labor un-'
dcr a great dieadvanUfO in having two com
manding genersls; thai the road to victory is
'hroiigh unity of design. Tne inference I
wouid draw from Gen. Scott's idesa is, that
Sebas'.opol will not b. tukin; for I doubt
whether the allies can thro t such a prepun-denn.-..'
of force there as is necs-ary. Tn?
General turther said, that the allies Coutdnbt
re-embark trow without Immtnse lost of nan,
ind all the materials of war la camp except
the weapons in tli"ir bunds."

What a Protective Tariff would do.
An intelligent correspondent of the Bos
on Traneoript, writing upon the ev.isof free
rade und ihe benefits that would sccrje
Irom a Protective Turin", says:
We might by an efficient protective poll- '
:y, add at least 60,000,000 per annum to th
wealth of the country, instead of losing, as
tre do, $J5,000,0ii0. A dllference of 75,
J00.U00 could easily b effected and our mo
ney kept at home. We should bs immense
gainers if we could keep out everything that
tve can make, and wo might then admit tea,
toffee, wines, Sic, free of duty. Suppose
that then our revenues would fall short, w'e
sould well afford direct trxation, and much,
Liaiter afford to raise double: the present rev
enue ttian we can liatv afford tho direct pay
ment of what ie neceeaary for the expenses
ot government, or we might raiac nur me
nue from those articles and others llutjwe do '
not and cannot procure. If we were not a
people who, as Mr. Barnum says, dslight in
a certain amount of humbug, and rather pre
