This invocation, from the songs of Morris,
was said and sung, was echoed and re-ecboed
around the corner of Fourteenth street and
Pennsylvania arenue yesterday afternoon,
with an unwonted depth of feeling. The
woodman appealed to was busily engaged In
cutting down In his prime, and with all his
leafy honors clinging to him, the noble and
symmetrical sycamore that has, for so long
sheltered the cullers at the popular estab
Ushmcnt of Cozzesa, the Wine Merchant,
and Ki dwell, tho Chemist, from the sum
mer's sun. The woodman, in obedience to
tho orders of officials who are straightening
and improving our thoroughfares, turned n
deaf ear to all appeals. In vain was Mo Rim
sentimental sung, " Woodman, spare that
tree'" chanted In all its variations. The
more they begged huu to "spare," the more
ten-Btrikes he made upon tho base of tho big
sycamore, severing root after root, below the
surface of the ground which had been digged
away, until it Ml with a crash that was re
sponded to with a sigh by all who witnessed
the seeming sacrilege. Some said tho noblo
treo uttered a groan as the last ligament that
bound it to tho earth was sobered, but, be
this as H may, we are assured that lost night,
during the pauses f ne raD' which wept
fitfully upon its J.Tlntf leaves, It was heard
to soliloquise as follows'
so li Log vr
AIm ' alas ' Is not tay fate c. cruel one ?
I care not for the threadbare jokes of stupid
witlings who, In passing, tell me to pack up
my trunk and leate, who ask derisively why
I didn't barl at the fellow who felled me, who
cry out, twig the old button-ball chap

he has done '
"No, I do not feci cut up by the feeble
sarcasm of siuh sap heads Tho only toler
ably willy thing I heard from them all was a
remark of Coikns', that I could now af
ford to give Bkal IIii kxih a chip, But I
feel that my fate is a hard one. Uuro I not
breasted the storms and endured the heats of
summer and the dln.greeiibnit.es of Wash

enjoyment of ft quiet old age, now that there
Is a prospect of Increased comfort in this

nnd absorbed oxygen from the atmosphere to
keep my branches clothed with broad leaves
for tho comfort of those who sought my shade?
It i) true, young mep who have been she.
I it red by me from the hot lun of an afternoon
seem sometimes to hare Imagined they repaid
the obligation by Molding mi up In the late
hours of the evening, but I feel that I have
done my "level best" for all, from the chil
dren that played at my foot to the old man
who paused In his tottering walk to rest awhile
beneath my foliage. And It was my only am
bltton to extend my umbrage, to magnify
my shade through many years for the benefit
of the cltlsens of the capital. Oh Washing
ton ' Washington ' that gohbleth the pro flip,
and fleeceth those that are sent unto thee,
have I not gathered thy children beneath my
wings' But ye hare laid me low me of
whom the questton was never axe-ed "Why

'I could give many Interesting reminis
cences, and disclose many secrets, wero there
any to hear me. I have seen this capital of
the nation grow up from a wilderness, and
how have I watched the progress of Pennsyl
vania avenue from Its swamphood? Sine
WiLLAnD'fl hotel was built how often have
members of Congress passed beneath my Bri-
arean but briarless arms, sometimes with
steps unsteady showing how heavjty their
public duties weighed upon them. Standing
near mo In groups they have sometimes con
ferred with the lobby, confiding to each other
awful secrets that I have locked up In my
trunk, and which will now be lost to the
world forever. Others, too, hare stood there
concocting plans that made all my limbs
shiver. I have heard the mysterious confabs
of thieves and rlllains of every degree of tur
pitude. I bare often heard the "correspon
dents" from Newspaper Row, tired with their
day and night labor, comparing notes before
going home upon the unthankfulness and un
profitableness of their labor; and, oh, how
often have I heard the colloquies of all classes
who stopped occasionally within my area
wound up with the exolamatlon 'Come,
let's go and take another drink "
'Within the last fire years I have heard
much, too much, from the dark plotters
against the Government that protected them.
Even a tree Is shocked by such treason as
has been whispered at midnight under my
branches! I am a Union tree. If I had
allowed a part of my branches to secede,
either from the south side or the north, how
soon would those branches hare withered,
and how would my handsome form have been
distorted and crippled And now that the
tree of liberty has survived the treason that
assailed It, I had been happy to have lived
to see the banners of peace waving over the
land, and to hare stood until I had wasted
away piecemeal, instead of being cut down
ingloriously and cast into the fire that boils
the bacon and cabbage of those who once
sought my shelter to escape the heat Re

The Great Dock Race The Algonquin
liciunc 10 touiinut ins Tnai,
The creat dock trial between the Wlnooskl
and Algonquin was brought to a summary
termination yesteraay Dy me reiusai oi mt
Dlckerson to allow the Algonquin to com
plete the ninety-six hours trial on account of
alleged untairness ana violation oi tne agree
ment by the engineers of the Wlnooskl. Con
sequently at ten minutes past two o'clock
yesterday afternoon the engine of the Al
gonquin was stopped, alter sue naa com
pleted 63,252 revolutions. Mr. Dickerron's
friends claim that he Is justified in refusing
to pursue the trial further, as one of the ar
ticles of agreement was that the throttle
valve of the Wlnooskl should remain open
This was done, but the Winooskt's engineers
used a stop ralte, which Mr. Dlckerson in
sists to all intents and purposes is a throttle
alve in the manner In which It is used.
The engineers of the Wlnooskl allege that
there Is no unfairness on their part, that it is
perfectly legal for them to use the stop-valve,
as this simple arrangement performs the very
same duty as the complicated cut-off of Mr.
Dlckerson. They also insist that within two
hours of the stoppage of the Algonquin's en
gine the Wlnooskl had gained two hundred
and thirty-six turns on her opponent, aud
over eight hundred the previous twenty-four
hours. The Wlnooskl still continues to run
the ninety-six hours as originally Intended.
Last evening she was running splendidly,
making fully fifteen revolutions of her
wheels per minute.
The whole of this subject will be referred
to the Secretary of the Nay for his adjudi

The colored people of Missouri, through a

address to the people of the State, asking for

They ask It as essential to the security and

by emancipation, as true and loyal citizens
of the United States, and as men who have
defended and maintained the Government In
the field of battle. They say they do not ask
for social equality, for that depends upon
higher than human laws. They aver their
willingness to submit to any tests and re
strictions that aro required of whites, but
they think that political rights and franchises
should no longer depend upon color alone.

Journal of last evening has the following Items :
tieavy Kooocry ine noose oi Joan uorsimau,
who resides In the neighborhood of Pine Farm,
waa entered on Thursday night by two scoun
drels, and who, oo meeting one of Mr. Uorst
man's sons, knocked him down and maltreated
him In a cruel manner. They then effected an
entrance Into the bed-room where Mrs. Uorst
man and two of her daughters were sleeping, and
carried off a chest containing about fS.Ouo Id gold
and silver, after having thrown some Cayenne
pepper Into the eyes or the ladles. Mr. llorit
man has offered a reward of 300 for the appre
hension of the thieves. The connty In that
neighborhood Is reported to be Infested with
highwaymen of a most desperate character, who
bare committed numerous depredations during
the last few weeks. The case has been reported
to the police of Washington, who are said to be
on the track of the robbers.
More Lieht.li the gentlemen constitu
ting the Alexandria Oas Company did not hear
an Irreproachable character for honesty aud re
spectability, we should be Induced to suspicion
that they.have entered Into a conspiracy wlthoar
taieves ana rooners, to exungaisn me street
lamps every dark night after seven o'clock, to
enable them to ply their avocations with greater
facility. On Thursday night hardly a single lamp
was lit on Prince street, and very few ou King
and other streets There have been so many rob
beries committed during the last few weeks that
people who are obliged to be oat lats at night
would feel a great deal more secure on their
homeward route where they could see a street
lamp burning.
