meritV HeFsaid" with ; ; .^ great Reeling, v. 'Mr. ,
Urowri; I airi riot a learned-man! I am not i
a learned man!' that his proclamation had ,
not been correctly, understood ; = that /he had
"no interition'of bringing on, war, but ; that
his purpose -was, to, "defend; the, capital,
whiclii was -in dangerrof being bombarded
froiri tho?-heignts'acrpss;the Potomac : ;
On returning to. the? railroad; station to.
leave- -for Baltimore, s ; the Mayor received
a dispatch from\Mrr-JohnW. .Garrett,
president of the Baltimore and.Ohio_R-H
road Company, as] follows: - ''Three -thous,
arid: northern troops "are reported' to be
ntCockeysville. Intense. excitement. pre-.
vails Churches have been dismissed and
the people are arming in . mass. .- To pre
vent terrific : bloodshed the of _^aur -
interview and arrangement is- awaited. .
The Mayor in reply, sent a dispatch to
Mr Garrett saying: "Be calm and do
nothing ".until ; you hear from ;me .again.
Having Tdispatched . this.^ Messrs. Brown,
Brune, Wallis; - and ?Dobbin -.returned in,
haste to "the President and- exhibited to
him Mr. Garrett's. dispatch, which gave
the President great surprise. The.Presl-.
dent summoned the Secretary .of War and
General Scott and urged the : r «calll_ of
the troops, saying he had no -idea they
would be •" there. : Lest there should be ;
slightest suspicion' of. bad faith : on. his i
part in; summoning the Mayor to Wash
ington and allowing the troops to. march
on the city during his" absence, he de
sired that" the troops should,- If ; it .were
practicable, be sent back at once.to .York
or Harrisburg.; General Scott adopted the
President's view, and an order, was pre
pared by the" Lieutenarit-Gerieral to that
effect and forwarded to. Major. Belger,
who accompanied the Mayor. and his col
leagues back to Baltimore. The troops
were ordered back to Harrisburff, thence
to Philadelphia. . From : that city ...they,
were to go to "Perryville,'- and thence as
■ Major-General '.Patterson ".should-direct.:--..'
■; THE CA3IP-AT COCKEXSVILLE.
The troops at Cockeysville, numbering
2,400, about half of them unarmed, did not
receive 'their orders to' return to. Pennsyl
vania : for" several d ays. §j During the ; inter
val they were in sad plight, without food
and proper camp equipment.; There. was
some sickness, due to .want -of. food, .and
Marshal Kane sent wagon-loads of bread
and meat to them." ' After, the alarm about
the invasion, had been ,.; quieted; -by- the
Mayor Vmany citizens of went
"to "Cockeysville to visit ; the "camp.". * * *
On .May. sth * General B. F. .Butler oc
cupled/^.with two regiments, ;the Relay
House,. and on the 13th. he" entered.Balti
m ore, which ] -""as then . as , quiet as it is
to-day. He occupied and fortified Federal
Hill, "and issued- a proclamation treating
the city as conquered territory. For thi3
achievement/.'which. was entirely unop
posed, he -was made a major-general of
volunteers. . - -■■'■'.. - "... „.'.;.
- THE REACTION.. ; .; ,• '-':.
Frbm : this time began a Merles, of out
rages upon the citizens, of Baltimore of
unparalleled ferocity and injustice, which
continued^ until the war was": over. .Even;
then: political persecution ; did':ribt; cease
until the Constitutional Convention;. was
called by; the Legislature,- in. January; \lßG7i
| After- the subsidence of the) acute
citement of April 19th, and the following,
days, a reaction set. in and the people
divided in; sentiment,- some .being for the
Union, some for the South.' As (soon ..as
the belief that the State could, or : would,
secede was abandoned, : thousands of the
"be"it 'v-- young .men of the -State escaped
"across the Potomac and joined the Con
federate army. The number of them has
: beeri. : estimatedas high as 20,000, and a
. great -many joined the ; northern army. ..
„It>was. not- merely" the attack, on", the
'•Massachusetts regiment which made the
! North "arid the Federal' Government hos-.
Jtile to -the city.:. Before- that event the
people of the city had been -maligned in
the northern press.;- A conspicuous, in
fitance.;of-;this:rwas-the story : that the
assassination of i the President-elect . as
he ; . passed, thrqugh was :con
templated. There never- was . the slight
est ; foundation for;, any /such report,
and yet; Mr. .Lincoln 'V gave crederico to
it.' It was publicly announced that Mr.
Viri, going ,to;.Wasljirigton' for. 'hisj
inauguration -vvould' sb-irom Philadelphia'
to Harrisburg ./and thence :to Baltimore
by the Northern. Qentral. . The . day. fixed
* for . his" arrival in-itnisT city was Saturday,
February 23d, -at 11:30 A. M. -'-. ". .
LINCOLN'S TRIP ": TO WASHINGTON.
' Mayor Brown' was. at Calyert:' station,
"accompanied by the Pojice Cbmmissionera
and : a strong 'force of policeriien, ; at the.
• a'ppbiritecL hoiir'.to meet Mry Lincoln.The
Mayor, had a ' carriage in in
which, as he said, he .was to ; have the
honor of "escof tirig Mr. Lincoln through
. the .city to the Washington .station and
\of sharing, in any danger, which he-rriight
encounter. . "It is hardly necessary 'to
say.' l appfenerided'none,'.' Judge Brown
continues' in his narrative.; : "Wlien the
train came it appeared, to my great
astonishment, that Mrs. Lincoln ; and her
three' sons had. arrived .safely, arid. with
lout "hiridra'nee- or molestation. of ; "anj
kind, but that.Mr." Lincoln could' not be
found^ It was. then announced that he
-had passed .through "the city, incognito,
"in the night" train by, the Philadelphia,
Wilriiington and : Baltiriiore railroad, and
had readied Washington in safety at/the
: usual' hour- 'in the morning. ■;•' -For .this
; signal deliverance from an "imaginary.
rpefil r ; those who devised' the Q ingenious
plan of 'escapd were^Vof . course,'; devoutly
: thankful, ■. and they. ;' accordingly-/ took to
v themselves jio little ariiount of credit • for
i its success." Of. this episode Colonel La
'\ mon, : i the J friend :■ and : biographer . of Lin
coin, said: "Mr. Lincoln soon leai-ned to
rfegret.his midnight^ride ; ; His friends
reproached- him", : his ' eriernies taunted him.
He was' convinced that lie made Wgfave
'mistake, in yielding .to;. the solicitations

: that lies in even familiar surrouncings,
when one has. the eyes to set, ; that is

1 CONTENTMENT!:
; . there's the • germ! ' That's ,tha only
worth there is in .anythirig—^contentmerit."
-You 'remember the story of, the Grand
Mogul, who,; covered with jewels, >as car
ried through the streets ? He was ap^
proached by a mendicant, who said; to
him:" "Thank you, my Lord, for giving
me your' gems'." ."■-.' - - ; " ''."- 'f ''."'■""
;, The Mogul declared ; that . he had not
;done this. The poor man answered:
"Yes, you have; for I have looked at
them and enjoyed their glitter and their
beautiful color,. and their superb. settings,
and :, what : other pleasure ; can they; give
to , you. I have :•' enjoyed them; , therefore
they, are mine." . ; - .;
iThat pauper philosopher was wise in
his , generation, and -the little story is a
lesson. '■'.-,'. ■■■"' -' . fs ■ " *
. 'One of the secrets of :. happiness '; con
sists, iri ; finding; enjoyment in the genius,
the fame, arid -the wealth of other people.
Our content or discontent is esoteric; It
proceeds 7 outward from the action of the
spirit within, and there are beautiful
things everywhere for one's mutual :plea-;
sure arid, benefit; -because- nolorie'has in; 1
them a, special ownership. ' ' ■
Did you ever think how many flowers,
we have to enjoy in ..the parks of . a
large ;city. From the : early magnolia

sign ':■ of ,- leaves,", all through; the summer,
until the last wariaerer_ is back'fforii his
outing," there Is a succession of bloom,
that belongs; as equally to one as to an-
"other. 7
. I . heard a : distinguished divine in ' At
lanta say ."one day, ; to- his^ neighbor: •• . '\.
"Miss 5.,. you have devoted .a great
deal . of care to : the - cultivation of ' your
flower garden,, and I wish to say that I
am' very to you."
'. "How so?" ; - inquired the lady;
"the/flowers are mine arid not yours.";.
"Yes, that is. true. .The flowers ;:. are .
yours;- but they are in full "-.view 'from

. I THE PRESENT ;MRS! ROOSEVELT.
The present Mrs; Theodore Roosevelt,
I who before -her marriage was Editn
Carow, '; of New 'York, is ; a remarkable
woman, and one of rare personality.' She
! is a'woman of the highest principle, and
of a far more; than ordinary, mental cali
bre. | From her earliest. childhood she. has
been an omnivorpus reader, and a constant
student; { She has always shrunk .from
•anything like and the (neces
sary publicity that her husband's position
| has. forced upon her has been, so far as
layviri her power, made less conspicuous.'
:■;--■ She is a New Yorker ; by < birth,. was edu
[ cated at.;one; of the fashionable schools,
and has - spent > several years ' travelling
abroad. She:- is an accomplished liguist,
| and her musical .knowledge is far above
the< ordinary. '»-*'-/
:. Ever since)hert marriage she has devoted
herself, . heart and soul, to her, husband's
career, and j atlthe, T same time "has been
a trevoted :mother. She-has" not;' ia one
;sense-of .the word,, gone in: for society at
all, : although 'by her birth,- as well as her.
marriage, she. has always had a position ••
which involves certain- social duties. Her
circle ;of . has been "from
childhood the : same "as her husband's,
and they have '.: among * their ' friends the
leading people of -the country. .
ySlrs.,' Roosevelt is .rather petite, has
: brown hairj and brown eyes, a clear skin,
with 1 some "color,, when, she -is excited/ but '
her . chief beauty is ?her mouth, which is i
marvellously expressive. :; -„'-"■ ■

Gentlemen— lt is with great pleasure that
I write to inform you that I have used eight
bottles of your Pure Malt Whiskey; I would
not have been hereto-day only foryonrwon

medicine and been under the care of doctors.
I have had three severe attacks of grip and
pneumonia, which have left me^v/ith a bad
cough and weak heart I am 67 years old.
It has toned up my system and stopped the
hemorrhages and I' cough but very little. I
only regret that I did notknow of your
whiskey before. I cannot express what it
has done for me, >. I beg to remain.
Yours resp'y, MRS. H. C. ALLDTGTON.

MR. ROOSEVELT S YOUNGER SISTER
Mrs. Douglas Robinson, the younger
sister, is the wife -of a well-known real
estate man of this city, and is. considered
one of the cleverest women in New York..
Both : Mr. Roosevelt's, sisters are wide
readers. They have been from very lit
tle children the - most intimate friends of
Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, and the bond
of devotion to their brother is a very
strong, one.
-Mrs. Robinson lives at Orange in the
summer and at No. 422 Madison avenue
-in the winter.-;. Like her sister, "Mrs..
Cowles, she holds weekly receptions for
not only the smart set; but for people
from all over the country, who have
talent, charm, or any., gift that makes
them'in any way prominent. Mrs. Robin
son resembles .strongly Mrs. . Theodore
Roosevelt— in fact, they are often taken
for each other." ■ .
-Miss Alice Roosevelt, Theodore Roose
velt's eldest child,- will be IS : years old
next March, and it had. been planned that
she- should make her debut this winter
in- Washington society.- While Miss Roose-,
veit has not ; gone out in the formal so
cial acceptation of the term, she has of
'necessity seen a great, deal of society,
young as ' she is. She is a very, charming
young girl, with an unusually pleasant
manner, and with an intense interest in
life. 'She is very fond of outdoor sports,
is a/good horsewoman, arid thinks . no
thing of walking from -five to seven miles
a day. She is a fine tennis player.; She
lives out of doors as much as possible,
and is a "good specimen. of ■ a wholesome,
healthy, happy American girl.. ;
A WEALTH OF LIGHT HAIR.
- Her chief beauty is her light, fair, hair,
of which she has great: quantities. -She
has blue eyes and a fair skin, is above
medium height, and 3 has a ver/ slight
figure although rather athletic in build %
She . has a rather deep voice. | and a^very
jolly laugh. She is devoted to her home,
to her father, stepmother, and to : her halt
sister and ;brothers.; She has t>een edu
cated ,with governesses. Sho is lona.ot
re The"c" is another Miss Roosevelt who
will not be introduced to society -for some
years but who is a very pretty child, o.
about 10 years of age. She resembles her
mother" very closely, although she, too,
Alice She is being educated at home.
-The Rbof evelt lov°e of home is a marked
■characteristic of the family not confined
at aU to this' generation, for the Roosevelt
clanishness was. at one time a byword
and? to this day: the immediate members

Callaghan's first promotion was for a
daring single-handed deed which tend?
to show of what kind of stuff this galianj
son of Canada is made. "While under tha
command of Colonel Evans, he had gom
out to locate a party of Boers, and eima
across two of them in a house. He en
tered the house and held them up, making
them hand over to him their belts anil
bandoliers. He then sent a messenger
back and a parcy was sent out and
I rounded" up the party of twelve Boers ttr
which these two belonged. These prison
ers were taken, to Johannesburg. For tiia
part he had taken in this. Callaghan v,-ai
promoted. to the rank of corporal.
Soon after .this he was appolnretl an
intelligence orticer, under Colonel Bar
ton,, and served in, this capacity for four
months. When rhe Canadian Scouts were
formed, under "Gat" Howard, he was
offered a coriimission as lieutenant, whicn
he accepted. Some time after that h>j
'was recommended, for the D. S. 0.. for.
with two others, carrying important dig
patches from General French to General
Srriith-Dorrien. The three had been cap
tured, but afterward broke through th>j
;Boer lines. .... _.. ...........
In March, Lieutenant Callaghan ct
chosen to recruit a. party of Boerc— Ha
gathered twenty-six, some of whom, had
surrendered to tho British, while others
had • been. prisoners. a The Lieutenant ha^
a large photo of these Boers and hiKH
self. "He says they had volunteered ia
fight for the British, knowing that their
cause was lost and that the sooner th*>
war- was over the better it would be for
the people. He says he round them
first-class fighters, and they played th'J
Boers' own gam©, being exceptionally/
quick In getting under cover.
The majority of tho Boer forces still
tho field are" not really Boers, he says,
but the riffraff of Europe, and to them,
are not the Boers, he ascribes tho dete»
table white flag and other incidents of
that ilk. He holds a high opinion ot
the Boer, but "given the same footing
the- Boer is not in, it with Tommy At
kins." " ■ „
Speaking of the Irish Brigade of tna
Boer army, Callaghan said: "Thoush I'»
Irish myself, the members of that Irisi>
.Brigade were better horse packers than
: s'6ldieraj"They did nothing to hold up tn«
fame of the. Irish -soldier." He further
• expressed his opinion that only a small
percentage of them were really Irish.
*He was emphatic in his -expressions oi
satisfaction at the usage the Canadiai I.*1 .*
received at the hands- of the British on
cers, and with the rations vrovidetl. Ha
corroborated all reports as to the mar
vellous manner in which the vast armr
was. clothed and fed throughout the war.
