J. 1 .,1 ,!.,. W. rORKST. In Theodore Parker's frank and sym- Sathetie analysis of the character of eorge Washington he speaks of his skill and good fortune in the selection and purchase of real estate, and hi fine forecast of the destiny of Virginia and ; the West, In this respect Stephen A, Douglas- resembled the. Father .of his Prmntrv 11 o had an inspiration fori laud, and he delighted to tell his friends what bis country must be in the course of years Our wnueruess were ope ueu up by wise and generous legislation.. He bad none.of the. small, arts that would dwarf great enterprises by count ing the proms 01 tnose wno iuu iu mum. He iustlv believed that where there are large risks there should be large recom pense. I remember-who'of middle age does not? when the nropoiiition made to tax the people of Philadelphia and the State for the construction of the Pennsylvania Central roust'd a hnrri cane of opposition. We were , over whelmed by sinister prophesies; and vet the seed sown by the success of that proposition has already produced a work which in another generation will carry the trade of the Orient through Philadelphia, and open to it a .com merce with. Europe infinitely greater than any ever dreamed of in our wildest aspirations. The Pennsylvania Contral is like the Mississippi river, fed by many Wnrhps which it feeds in turn, and, with its manifold tributaries, capable of extending itself to all the nations ot the South, giving wealth to them in bounte ous supply, and receiving in exchange other riches and bounties. v. 1 Had the bold, brave men who first pushed it failed, their reputations would hv rotted in the cateizorv of the pro jectors who began other magnificent schemes in ower centuries, uu uruac only because they were ahead of their time. Stephen A. Douglas died too soon, for many reasons, and chiefly because had he lived he would have enjoyed the ripe fulfillment of many of his predictions and labors. But I began this sketch rather to relate an incident illustrative of his kindness to his friends than of his extraordinary prescience in the matter of the development of the public domain. He had, as 1 have said.the inspiration of the soil. To him I am indebted tor my first and only speculation the better to be recollected because it was successful. And the incident is the more interesting because, just now, the region iwhere I made my money is the point whence one of those empire lines is going forth to penetrate the wilderness and to convert it into a garden I mean the North Pa cific railroad. Stephen A. Douglas came to me one day in 1653, and said, looking np at the map, ' How would yon like to buy a share in Superior City, at Fond du Lac, the head of Lake Superior t and, before I could answer, he got on a chair and told me that from that point, or near it, would start the greatest railroad in the world, except the one on the thirty second parallel, just sun-eyed by Cap tains George B. McClellan, John Pope, and others, which was to open up the South. :'Bat,' I said, 'old fellow, I have no money, and to buy a share in the proposed location will require much.' 'No,' he replied, 'I can secure you one for 12500, and yon can divide it with ,' naming one of the best of the fu ture Confederates, 'and he will be greatly obliged.' I knew nothing of the location, had never been there, had no money of my own, but I saw Judge Douglas was in earnest and wanted to serve me, and when he left I borrowed the 12500, bought a share, divided it with the Southern gentleman referred to, who honorably paid his 91250, and, after cut ting mv share into five Darts, sold and gave three-fifths to other friends, and with my two-tilths bought tne waveny House, in Washington. The proceeds of my moiety of the shares of Superior City realized $21,000. For that 1 was indebted to Stephen A. Douglass-God bless him! I believe my Confederate friend has held on to his interest, and I shall be glad if he is as fortunate as I was. Duluth is now the fashion, and I wish it ell success, because it caajot grow rich without reflecting some of it wealth upon superior v,!ty, us near neighbor. la 1808 the Republicans of Pennsyl vania, by an nnaumons vote, put me at the head of their delegation to the Re publican National Convention, to vote for Oeneral Grant as their candidate for President. The first thine I did after getting to Chicago, was to go out to look on the moouineut to Stepen A. Douglus, on the shore of Lake Michigan ; the next to visit the massive buildings of the Illi nois Central Railroad Companr. the en terprise which he alone carried through Congress. Abe monument was not com plete, but the palatial edifices of the rail road were. I eould not help it, but when I remembered how in Paris and London, just the J ear before, I had r.een the Illi nois Central securities quotea among me consols of the oldest governments, and that that road was enriching all connec ted with it I say I could not help, as 1 thought of these things, drawing the con trast between the vital and vigorous championship of Douglas of this stu pendous work, and the studied neglect of hie memory by those who have profited by it. After passing through the mag nificent depot and the adjacent build ings. I said to an employe: " Who owns the most stock in the Illinois Central?'' "Indeed, I do not know, sir, was his reply. " Well my friend, I think the man who ought to own the most (jf it, and whose children should be moxt bene fited by it, was Stephen A. Douglas." I think the man may have heard of Douglas, but it was clear to me, from his look, that be thought me a lunatic. 1 The timber for a house in Salem, Conn., now occupied, was cut in the month of February, 11&9, and was found upon recent examination to be as per fect and sound as when built. There is no doubt but that timber cut in February will last three times as long as if cut in the summer months. By a little atten tion to this much time and trouble might be saved. FLORIDA WATER.
