Horace Greeley U one of the people, and the architect - 'of his own fortune. In all his life not one-tenth of one pet cent.' of his receipts came , "fi-omV the , public coffers. ' : Born . ou the ;. rugged rocks.of New Hampshire, to no estate but honest -.'.ncostry and penury, his own i oil ... not only ; supplied his own I'mgat ! wants, but aided to drive poverty from the door of his' i -v.il v. , The common '.school only ;acadetnyrar4.kii;U. his only college. - Penniless and friendless he entered t the great metropolis, and by industry and thrill amassed , a fortune, His hand was ever open to help the struggling around him, - and; his heart ever opened to the cry of the distressed. Honest, industri ous and temperate himself, he ever pitied and sought to reform those who were not. Like most Americans, he had a strong pas sion lor politics, and earlv m life the integrity of his character, tne Dreadth oi Ins knowledge, ana tne enthusiasm of his; nature made him a power in the land. His political ideas were adverse to mine, out neitner l, nor . any one, ever doubted his intellectu al power and his moral .upright ness. : .. .' ' ; Horace Greeley has, for thirty years, had a .National reputation. He has borne an active Dart in all the great struggles' of his age, lie is eminently a man of ideas. a thinker, a leader of the nennlft. There is no subject of public in terest on winch he has not ' spo ken with frankness and vii?or.-. He has been the peculiar disci- pies ol nobody. Bold and orig inal, he leads, and asks others to follow, but nercV fttltcnr whether they follow or not. Such a man being a public journalist, speak. mg Hvery day, and , discussiner every passing event must nec essarily say in a generation much that is ill-considered and crude. However sagacious and o T" ttrrr clear-sighted he may be, he must magnify out of their real proDor- tions ideas of policies which seem tor the moment to promise con trolling influence over the future. and the quly wander Is how In a long life of journalism a mind so active and : enthusiastic should have blundered bo - rarely. 1 He nas, in tne main, kept up. too. with the spirit of the &se. ' No antiquated dogma. except protec tion pas rounci layor in his eyes, and out of that Eas sprung most of the errors, aa I regard themi of his political policy, But in this he does not stand alone. It is an idea ; which, in its various ramifications, ,, has filled the minds of many thinkers and statesmen. . Many who have thrown it off tq riff retain it as to other concerns, and Seem unwilling to admit thftt the neQ ple can manage'' their riwplest concerns without the aid of the Government It must b ailm?. ted that Greeley belongs to this scnooi oi tmnKers. enthusiast ically devoted to popular richts. he treats the people as under the perpetual guardianship ,, p the the creator tq the creature. His policy - sends , the, , supervising hand of the Government into all the concerns, and seeks to shape by political action even the hab its and ideas of the' peoDle. This whole theory of the funo- 1 ft ' ' 1 i I " .a upns pi- government u anti-Democratic, and contradicts our thfl. ory that "that Government is lrto4' wrlishll r?vmyn n lnrt M T..A all ' these ' abstract notions-' are outside the issues of the ' dav! . They are speculative rather than i. -1 I 1... !i prucuciu. ureeiey remits to Coneress the tariff question, and that is the only branch of ', the protective idea that can . have any political force in the Feder al Government, when the sec tions are reconciled and local government " remitted to the States. .

' His theory of the righ'ts-'and - powers ol the federal Government j are, it must be confessed, latitudipa rian, and if he made 'law instead of administered it, would be highly obnoxious. As to all this, however, rhfii ias.JbuHittle power, antV his speculative; opi pion s ran little Jaria siUdisiiii past career shows that his theo-riea-haveeyerbeen, allowed -to cripple his-pctidahactirfnrrIn all his past life he has tried hard m opMe mmi make tbepthe, creed of parties, but he never lay dreaminsr over lheir perfection,. or failed to take i.vmv, jiitttutiu Jliirii 111 me movements of public affairs" b- cause' Hii IthedriestVel-efhbt adopted. Still, he has not been vacillating;, button tlio; contrary; steady in his adherence to prin ciples. Through opposition and obloquy, he adhered to the cause of Abolition till -slavery was .'no more., He has never', faltered in his advocacy' of protection,' tho' the thinking world has ' been . in arms against him. Time has not shaken his devotion, to temper ance, his faith" in religious tolea tiony or, iis coniide'ifce human progress; Vile is ever the-'sanie steadlhst friend of the people, advocating their? interests,?, and pointing them to the paths of in dustry. , temperance,, .economy, rectitude' " and virtue.

He shrinks from war and violence and oppression with the sicken ing horror of an i anchorite, and yet would brave prisons: "'"or stripes, or death itself, in defense ot tn - Tight' ' Whatever else may be said, Horace Greeley is no common-place man.' His ca reer has not been that of a mere place-hunter. JJo scorns ,the highest offices if they cost ;the surrender of his convictions, and dehes'even his friends when his consciousness of duty: requires him to o.pnopo them, Jle is the strength and the docility' of greatness, the elevation and firm ness ol conscious rectitude.1 ,No country ever more needed these great qualities ... than ; they are now needed in tfee .

A bel lows on the inside swells up the tail at will to a belligerent size, and by a tremolo attachment, causes, at the same time, the patent cat to emit all , noises' of which the living bird, is capable. : When you want fun, you wind up your cat .and. place him on the roof. Everv cat within half a mile hears him, girds on his armor, and sallies forth. Fre quently fifty or one' hundred . at tack him at once, No sooner does the patent cat feel the weight of an assailant than his teeth and claws work with light ning rapidity. Adversaries with in six feet of him . are torn to shreds. Fresh battalions come on to meet a similar fate, and in an hour several bushels of hair, toe nails and fiddle strings alone remain. .
