P.x-Mayor Jonn omiin, wnu ia still living in rhiladelpliia, in tne eigniy-, first year of hi age, dropped in at my editorial rooms the morning after Mr. Clay arrival, in company wnn my es teemed friend, Edwin Forrest, the trage dian.

Anxious to rouse him, I quietly ventured to lueaest that I had heard the speech of rierre BOUie, oeHBior iruiu uuu.n.o.. an extremist especially distasteful to Mr. Clay and that I thought it a very thorough and able presentation of the side adverse to. the Compromise Meas ures.

It was, I think, about the time Robert J. Walker's tariff of 141? was passed that he came to lTiiiadelphia, and stopped at Hartwell's Washington House, on Chestnut street, above Seventh, the guest of the Whigs, whom he addressed at a splendid banquet in the celebrated Chinese Museum, on Ninth street. Ex tensive preparations bad been made for the occio. The company was numerous, including hundreds of ladies in the galleries, the feast superb, the wines delicious, and Mr. Webster did not rise to respond to the toast in hig honor until late in the eve- Short-hand rtTKirtini was not . . . .t..t it i. nn a awifL accurate. tUCU " .

I bad taken his old speech on free trade, delivered in 1H24, when be was a member of the House, and con verted it into a supplement, of which many thousands wero printed! and sold before the joke was discovered. The Democrats were delighted the Whigs furious, especially Mr. Greeley, of the Tribune, who had come over to near Mr. Webster, and who bought several copies of the old speech, thinking it the new ono. . Hut Mr. Webster enjoyed it hugely, and when his friend, George Ashtnun, handed him my Extra, he laughed heart ily and said, " I think Forney has printed a much better speech than the one I made last night Was not that genu ine manliness? The other incident hap pened after his defeat for the Whig nom ination for President iu 1852. I was then Clerk of the House of Representa tives of the United States, and one of the editors of the Washington Union, published by that fine specimen of man hood, General Robert Armstrong, of Ten nessee. Everybody knew thutMr. Web ster keenly, felt his rejection by . the party he Lad so honored and served. The brilliant effort of Rnfus Choate to make him the candidate in the Baltimore Whig National Convention, though inef fectual to prevent the foreordained se lection of the brave but vainglorious Scott, had gone to the hearts of the peo ple, adding not only to the grief of Mr. Webster's friends, but as the result proved, to the forces of the Democrats, who were largely assisted by their old op ponents in the ensuing election which made Franklin Pierce President. Indifferent to or ignorant of the fact. a large concourse of the Whigs of Wash ington City concluded ta serenode Mr. Webster at his residence on Louisiana avenue. I followed the procession. It was an .exquisite moonlight summer evening. ' The crowd was dense, the mu sic delicious, the cheers inspiring. A long time elapsed before the statesman appeared, and when be did he looked like another Coriolanus. Robed in his dressing gown, he spoke a few minutes, but in a manner I shall never forget. His voice, always clear and sonorous, rolled with deeper volume over the crowd. There was no bitterness, but an inexpressible sadness in his words, and when he bade them good night, and said he should sleep well and rise with the lark at the purpling of the dawn drop ping no syllable in favor of General Scott the serenaders retired as if they had heard a funeral sermon. I walked to my editorial den and wrote a leader on the scene, so full of the emptiness of human ambition, and the ingratitude of political parties. The following verse from Byron closed the article: As the struck eagle, stretched upon tho plain, , No mora through rolliqg oloud to soar again, Viewed his own feather on th fatal dart. And winged the shaft that quivered in hil Keen were his pang, but keener far to feel He nuraed the pinion which linpell d the ImI , , While the aame plumage that had warmed his neat, Drunk the last life-blood of his bleeding breaat. - The "Ball" of 1840. Tlia Plttalkiirir Pnat ranalln tn mind an old acquaintance with which we were as familiar in its aay as it was permittea a Democrat to be. We copy: Vrtat man nf midrlln nPA rsmsmhpr the exciting political campaign of 1840, and the innumerable campaign songs it gave rise to, the refrain of one of which was We'll keep the ball a rolling. Far ' TiuDecano ' and Tyler too. etc.. Knt tbnr am rinnhtleH thousands who um.ma. tba rpfrain and who have seen it repeatedly in print, who are not aware ot tne reference to me obii that was to be kept constantly revolving for the benefit of "Tippecanoe and Tyler, too." The history of the ball is this: Paring the campaign of 1B40, an eccentric but worthy gentleman named Wm. Johnson, now deceased, but then a resident of the village of Dresden, Ohio, gave vent to his enthusiasm ry tne construction 01 a tn.. 1.0 1 nr irlnhn thirt.ppn fpet in diam eter, typical of the original thirteen States of the Union, and its perpetuity. This immense ball was made of seasoned poplar boards, whioh after being steamed were bent into proper snape, ana uie whole covered with muslin upon -which were mapped the various States of the Union, rivers, etc. This was placed in a frame npon axles, and the whole mounted on a large wagon. It was only necessary to touch the ball lightly with the finger to set it in motion, when all the vari-colored States were presented to view in regular order. In the early part 01 tne campaign 01 iiiio it dr.it mndo its annearunce in Duh- lic, and though it was only intended for a local sensation, and for the purpose of J..u,ini omwH tn hear the now vener able Thomas Ewing deliver a Whig speech, it was aestinea te acnieve a na tional reputation. , L'pon the occasion to which we have referred, it was made to head a procession, and was drawn by four black horses, gaily caparisoned. At an early hour the ball, followed by an immense crowd, left Dresden for Zanes ville, sixteen miles distant where Ew ing was to spoak amid the hard-cider songi of the Whigs, and the jeers of the T nnvt. ppAwrl. nsonls. attracted by the novelty of the affair, Joined in the. procession ana swenea 11 u iwiucubc proportions, to the discomfiture of the Democracy, who were wishing it all sorts of mishaps. Everything went prosperously, How ever, until the procession reached the bridge across the Muskingum river, when it was found that the "ball" would not pass nnder the root. The Whigs were nonplussed, and the Democrats were ju bilant. But Mr. Johnson was equal to the occasion, and extemporizing a ferry. transported Uie oau ana wagon across the river, from whence it was hauled to the place of routing amid the applause of the jubilant Whigs. After the meeting it wis presented to the Whig County Committee. The fame of it having gone abroad, it was started on an Eastern tour along the "National Road," and was greeted everywhere by large and enthusiastic crowds. Having made the circuit of the Eastern States, it was taken to Washington, where for some weeks it attracted universal atten tion. It wu then taken South through Virginia, the Carolina. Georgia, etc., to Sew Orleans, and op the Mississippi river and the Ohio to the State of Ken tucky, from whence it cnsderH into Tennessee, and was lost sight of in the vicinity of Knoxville shortly after the Presidential election.

A Bride AtMlnrted by it Railroad Train A Mot rarsolt with aa Happy Heauit. From th New York World. , ' Stories of runaway wives are of fre quent occurrence, but it is seldom that such desertions occur on a wedding day. Yet such an event actually , took place yesterduy over in New Jersey. A fond Couple were regularly married, and after duly receiving the congratulations of , . , meir menus, Hieppea into a carriage anu were driven te the depot of the New Jersey railroad at Jersey City, intending from there to set out upon their bridal tonr. Carefully and tenderly the happy bridegroom escorted his blushing bride to a palace car, and then stepped b&ck to the depot (or a moment. A REMARKABLE ABDUCTION. . When he returned, to his consterna tion he found that the train had started, bearing with it his bride, who was thug compulsorily flying from him at the rate of thirty miles an hour. Deter mined, however, not to be separated from her who had so recently been joined to him for life, he rushed to the office of the superintendent crying, ' not My kingdom for ahorse," but" One hundred dollars for your fastest locomotive." The superintendent, more moved by the hapless plight of the bridegroom than by the pecuniary offer, ordered the iron steed brought forth, and the husband mounted it in company with an engi neer and fireman, and swift as the wind the locomotive sped out of the depot and flew along after the preceding train.. , THE pursuit. Many precious moments had been lost in the negotiation with the superintend ent and in the preparation of the loco motive, and it was not until after a run at full speed for thirty minutes that the anxious eves of the husband were blessed with the sight of the pursued train, com ing up with it when it stopped at the Rahway station. A HAPPY RESTORATION. 1 The meeting between the loving pair may, to use a hard-worked reportial ex pression, be better imagined than de scribed; but there is no doubt that that bridegroom mentally resolved that if he left that train, or any other, during his bridal tour, for any purpose whatever, his wife should accompany him. The Residence of Dir. fUewsirt, the Millionaire, In Sew Yorla.. New York Cor. of Washington Patriot. Cold as a snow-bank in December rises Stewart's marble palace at the cor ner of Thirty-fourth street and Fifth avenue. Fronting on Thirty-fourth street, the main entrance is reached by a flight of eighteen marble steps, the portico supported by six Corinthian columns. The architecture of the build ing is Corinthian. The windows on Thirty-fourth street number twenty three; those on Fifth avenue nine. The size of these is in proportion to the hight of the different stories, and each contains a single pane of French plnte glass. Those on the first or parlor floor have pretty little balconies. The house is three stories high, not including a line basement and vaulted roof. The white marble stairway is in the center of the building, and leads to the upper part of the house. The floors of three stories are of Italian marble. The first contains the breakfast-room, with panels of yellow and gold, brought out by the scarlet bordering. On the right of the entrance is the reception-room, frescoed ill blue and gold. This leads into the grand saloon on the east, which has handsome win dows on Fifth avenue and Thirty-fourth street. From the grand saloon we enter Mr. 8tewart's billiard-room, in green and gold, and through this walk into he picture gallery, containing a fine collection of works of native and for eign artists. On the north side are placed paintings by Americans, and to the other sections belong pictures brought from abroad. Above all are heads of French and Americans who are distinguished in the works of art, and we here recognize Rosa Bonheur, Laroche, Meissonier, Church, Bierstadt, Gifford and Huntington. The Horse fnir," - by Rosa Bonheur, and a cattle piece by her brother, occupy spaces at either end of the gallery Church's magnificent picture of "Niagara," and Bierstadt's "Rocky Mountaiu Scenes," also have places assigned. On the second floor, several beautiful rooms form Mrs. Stewart's suite; these are ornamented with rich dark woods. The room on this floor immediately above the grand saloon is the guest chamber; the billiard room, opening from tliis, is frescoed in blue and gold. The rooms above these are said to be designed for distinguished guests. In this suite we find no marble, but here everything is simple and elegant; attached is a billiard-room, also espe cially intended for the guests. The wine-room is near this suite. The servants' apartments in the upper stories are convenient and comfortable, and, in the basement, the kitchen, laua dry, attic room, and, in fact, every cranny and square inch are perfectly finished. But even surrounded by all this gran deur, those accustomed to. the dainty re finement of a smaller home, where the individuality of each member is not only seen but felt, realize the lack which gold can never supply. . Daniel McFarlnnal In an Inaano Aajrlnsn.. From th Indianapolia Journal, Jan. 30. On Friday Inst, during the call of the docket in the Morgan County Common Pleas Court, at Martinsville, Mr. McNutt, the attorney fur Daniel E. McFarland, stated that he had recently received in formation that his client was at the pres ent time an inmate of an insane asylum in New York, and asked for leave to withdraw the motion for a new trial in the case of McFarland against McFar land. This was granted; and thus ends the history of this celebrated case, 10 far as the courts of Indiana are concerned. A Boston lady, " who has been there," says that,, in view of the awkwardness with which men aid a lady in rising from the sidewalk, she would much rather remain in that position than have such assistance. The gallants must not be so gingerly, but take hold with both arms, Tift neatly and firmly, and not dis engage themselves too soon. 3 A Chicago man left f 1 to each of his two daughters, and the rest of his prop erty to his wife, but aulborited hit wife to sell the entire estate if otherwise she could not raise the f 2 to pay the bequests to the two daughters.
