BOSTON A CENTURY AGO.
From the Boston Commercial.
W. N. Harrison, Esq.; of Baltimore,
placed in our hands a copy of the Boston
Gazette and Country Journal, No. 629,
benrini; date April 20, 17C7 ; Edes & Gill,
in Queen street, primers. It is a dingy
little sheet, and contains nothing but
foreign news, arrivals and departures
from the port, and advertisements.'
The foreign news is dated from Febru
ary 1G to March 6, inclusive. Under the
date of March 3, the important announce
ment is given that " Yesterday their
Majesties went a second time to Drury
Lane to see the English Merchant and
The J)evil to Pay. This is almost as
startling as some of the dispatches that
are received by the cable. Certainly it
is quite as worthy of being telegraphed.
Death taught his lessons in those days
just as he does now, and was just as much
heeded. We are told in an impressive
manner, under date of London, March 1,
"The giddy, the gay and polite world
are not a little alarmed by the great havoc
(he King of Terrors has made among
them, in cutting down four in the very
blossom of youth, in less than the space
of a week, viz : Countess af Suffolk, Lady
Fortrose. daunhtor of Lord Harrington,
Hon. Mr. Howard, heir to the Duke of
Norfolk, and the Hon. Mr. Barnwell, son
of Lord Trimblestown."
' The following notice is published of a
character that nas passed into history
a warm, constant and powerful friend of
the cause of America :
" The Earl of Chatham arrived on Sat
urday afternoon from Marlborough, at
the King's Arms, in Reading; he lay at
Salisbury on MH'day night, at Salt
Hill, and yesterday arrived at his house
in Bond street Ilia Lordship continues
The social affairs of Boston appear to
have been somewhat different in those
days from what they are at present The
Faneuil Hall Lottery, No. 8, is adver
tised ; and there, are three advertise
ments for the calo of slaves, which, we
copy: - - . ,
"A likely negro woman, about thirty
eight years of age, brought np in this
town, and can do all sorts of household
work, to be sold by public vendue at
Capt Moses Bonnet's, opposite the house
of J. Tudor, on Wednesday next N. B.
It it not for any fault that she is to be
disposed of, but in order to settlo an es
" To be sold, a likely negro boy, about
nine yearl old, who has been in this
country two years and talks good Eng
lish. Inquire of the printers.
In those days Benj. Faneuil was to be
found at his shop in Butler's Row, and
Mose Denton at his auction shop, Fan
euil HU Market Handsome houses
were advertised with gardens and out
houses, and places Bra mentioned near
pastures, which then abounded in the
The means of conveyance were thought
to be in a highly advanced condition.
John Wood informs the public, with the
air of a man who has gone a little ahead
of his neighbors, that he has " provided
himself with a stage coach and wagon, in
order to convey passengers to the Mine
ral Springs, Stafford, and proposes to set
out from this place on the 20ih of May
nest The price five dollars for each
person. Any person inclined to go, by
addressing a line to the Lamb, will be
In glancing over the advertisements of
the dry goods dealers, we find that the
ladies of a hundred years ago adorned
their sweet persons with Telveretts, pe
mascoes, sagathies, tommies, shallows,
longee, woomnlls, callumancics, lettered
garters, draw boy, falicia pandema, dor
The same gentleman also left with us a
oopy-of "Tate and Bradev's New Ver
sion of the Psalms," which bear the coat
of arms and the fac simile of George
Washington. It is a fine copy, and Har
riaon has autheaticated it aa having been
originally in the possession of the lather
of his Country.
Amnesty to Insurgents.
The Atlantic telegraph informs ns
that the Turkish authorities have granted
a general amnesty to the Cretan insur
gents. We imagine that there is not a
generous heart in all the earth that will
not hear this announcement with delight
and pleasure. The human heart, when
it is not distorted by passion, delight in
mercy. Even General Butler and Mr.
Thaddcits Stevens will hear this news
But it is curious that while everybody
assents so readily to pardoning other
people's rebels, all are not ao willing to
pardon their own rebels. The English
appeal to the United States in reference
to the Southern iasnrgents, and Mr. Sew
ard makes his appeal for mercy In be
half of the Fenians.
What every one is so anxious to lee
done, where they are not personally
prejudiced on the subject, must be
founded in wisdom.
' Indeed, if history proves anything with
its turaous philosophy teaching by cx
ample, it is that conciliation is a great
power in curing political discontent It
has required a long time of stupid mis
rule, with infinite evils, for England to
commence to learn tnig lesson in reier
ence to Ireland. In the same vindictive
spirit in which General Butler and men
of his class manifest toward the South,
England has govorned Ireland, or rather
misgoverned her, forlongyears. It was
a long time before public sentiment ia
England became sufficiently rational
and magnanimous to do anything look
ing to justice to Ireland. During all
this time Ireland was a burden on Lng
land. It was only when a more enlight
ened and generous policy was resorted
to by Etigland that the Irish connection
began to be a real benefit to England.
And yet there are a certain class of
men among the iladical leaders who
wish to repeat in this country the Eng
lish policy to Ireland- These men, cither
from a narrow range of mind, which
does not permit them to grasp the great
matters involved in the pacification of
the South, or because they seek popu
laritr by pandering to the meanest in
terests of men, think all statesmanship
consists in denouncing rebels and eter
nally trampling upon the South.
For our part, we wish to abolish South
ern sectionalism by nationalizing it
We wish to plant the foundations of the
government South in the affections of
the people, and have one united, univer
sal, grand country.
We hope that in the spirit of, true
peace a general amnesty may be pro
claimed to all persons involved in our
rebellion. - '
We have always prided ourselves on
that character ot Christianity which in
culcates universal love; and yet the
Turkish government, with no higher
source of inspiration to draw its morals
from than the Koran, in the very fever
of the blood, while the insurrection is on
hand, proclaims universal forgiveness,
and we refuse to exercise this noble pe-
rogative ot lorgiveness to our erring
brotbets ot the South, though it will soon
be two years since the last gun was fired
in our melancholy war. .A anuria t in
telligencer. Curiosities of the Atlantic Telegraph.
The Courier du Havre sets forth a
striking result of the laying of the trans-
Atlantic telegraph. It says: "New York
is situated nearly 76 degrees of longitude
west of 1 aris. lhe earth in its daily ro
tation, travels through 360 degrees in 24
hours, from which it results that every 15
degrees to the west of the first meridian
placed at Paris is one hour later. When it
IH I1UUU llli 1 HI IB IV I. UUIJ ii u viuvs ai 10
degrees to the west of that city. And, as
New York is 76 degrees to the west of
Paris it follows that it is 7 o clock in the
evening at New York when it is midnight
at Paris. Suppose, then, that a great
edifice in 1 aris, the opera lor example,
takes fire at a quarter past 12 at night on
the 1st ot September next, the event is
immediately telegraphed from Paris to
New York, and is dated : 'Paris, a quar
ter paBt li at night, 1st September, lhe
news arrived at New York, let ns say, in
two hours, to make ample allowance for
interruptions, etc.; the dispatch, dated
Paris, 1st September, arrives at New
York at a quarter past 9 in the evening
of the 31st of August, so that a New
York manager could appear on the stage,
and aftpr the three customary bows,
could thus express himself: Ladies and
gentlemen, I am sorry to say that the
opera at Paris has been destroyed by fire
three hours after the present time. Our
director has just transmitted to his Paris
confrere his condolence on the disaster
which is going to happen to Uitn.' More
over, it will no longer suffice to indicate
a date and. say, 'Such a day, such an
hour j' it will be necessary ' time at Buch
a place.' Thus the clerks of the new
telegraph oliice tako care to add to the
communications exchanged between the
two continents, the express mention,
'timo at Paris, or Greenwich, or New
York, or Washington." "
H. P. Willis.
From a New York Utter. ,
Until lately, there frequently appeared
on Nassau and Fulton streets, in the
printing offices, a venerable man with
gray locks and a whitened 'beard under
the chin. His step was tottering and he
walked slowly, but one would always
observe about him a certain air of dan
dyism. He always wore gloves and his
clothes were scrupulously in the fashion.
It was N. P. Willis, the poet, now up
wards of seventy years of age. Forty
years ago he was, in common with Irving,
Paulding, Morris, Leggett and others, one
of the young men of literary premise in
this city. New York did not extend
much beyond Canal street; the Park
theatre, opposite the city hall, wus the
nightly rendezvous of the teiwn wits ; the
fashionable part of Broadway wag at the
corner of Cortlandt street, and the fine
gentlemen and ladies made their after
noon promenades on the battery. Willis,
George P. Morris and Theodore S. Fay
(afterwards our Minister to Berlin),
edited a literary sheet, the Weekly Mir
ror. Willii was in the hight of his rep
utation as a poet then, and his partner
Morris had just made himself famous
with " Woodman, Spare that Tree."
Morris died about two years ago, still a
partner with his old friend in the Home
Journal 'Willis, it is said, is now pass
ing away. He ha not appeared in the city
for some weeks, but has been confined to
his residence on the Hudaon by his
feeble health. With the exception per
haps of Mr. Simms, of South Carolina,
he is the last representative of the sec
ond generation of American authors.
Daily Expenses of a Millionaire.
An action of some interest to New
Yorkers, as showing the average daily
expenses of a millionaire's family, was
up Tuesday in the Supreme Court, before
Justice Sutherland. The suit is entitled
Anna L. Murphy vs. Andrew Gross, and
is bronghtby the plaintiff for the purpoe
of restraining the defendant from dis
posing of certain property in this city,
during the pendency of a divorce suit
between the plaintiff and ber husband
Daniel T. Murphy. Daring the argu
ment yesterday it came ont that the hus
band is a millionaire; that be has re
cently sold brown-stone mansion,
valued tu 1100,000, and that be owns a
house at New Brighton, hitaVen Island,
which rents, in its furnished state, for
$ G66 per month, which be offered to give
to his wife. 6he claims a decree of sep
aration from 'her husband on the ground
of cruelty. It was shown in affidavits

and have now seven children, living with
their mother in this city; that her ave
rage daily expenses, aside from the fur
nished house near Lexington avenue, in
which tbey live, are one hundred dollars
It als appears that the husband was the
owner of large real and personal estates
in California, and that a few months
since he left New York, and counsel
