What Became of a Fourth of July Speech. I!V WILL VlSSrilEli. It was tin* slimmer of !Sfi2. The armies of the Tennessee ami tin* Cnm herlaml hail just passed through tin* campaign that followed the occupant of Nashville hy the union forces; Buell's army it was that had made a forced march of ten days from Nashville to Pittsburgh Landing, the last 24 hours of which had heen “double-quick" a great portion of the time, much of it through rain and mud, and the last 12 hours in the night, with the mud and rain accompaniments, to the field of Shiloh, there to relieve Grant's stricken troops and to retrieve the tirst day's disaster. Through that bloody Held, and the evils that followed it—mud, cold, hun ger—the most terrible deprivations and discomforts, indeed, known to soldier life in times-of war. came the siegeand capture'oUCorinth, the battle of Inka Springs, the march to Decatur and Tnsenmhia, and t hen on toward Hunts ville. It was within a few miles ofthe last named place that the army lay en camped, in the early days of .Inly, and in a level valley, where there were wide stretches of plain and here and then forests of towering live-oak. Here the Fourth of .Inly was cele brated in almost a homelike way. A stand was erected beneath the trees, and seats were improvised ofdogs and of poles laid aeross wooden forks driven into the ground. The stand was arhored with houghs of green.and “Old Glory" was tastefully woven among t hem. The orator of the day was a young brigadier named Garfield.and his voiee. in pat riot ie eloipienee, rang out over (In* vast audience of bronzed soldiers like a silver hell. He said ‘liings that brought only such cheering as one hears in any army, ll was sincere, wholesome and enthn | si;ist ie. j There is a well-known oil story of Ih si * times, in those armies, that a vis it in* ”o\i rn.>r of a state while riding al mg with a general of division, hear ing a wild and prolonged cheer in the ■ I stance, risked what il m ant. > 11 1\ Itoiis, an or a r:i 1.1 >it. was the 1 iconic reply. Sneli was the pipnlarilv of General Koiisseau. of Kenl nek\ , in that army, and so gallant and chivalrous his ap pearance. I hat whenever lie rode a lining troops that were not constantly with him long and succeeding cheers follow ed him down t lie line. When upon going into camp at any time a rabbit, or even so many rabbits, were started from their hiding places, the soldiers, cheering as if they were making a charge, would chase Mr. B a 1 1- hit hv battalions, until open that pro verbial sage and strategist o( the ani mals would stop, overwhelmed by fright, and allow himsell t<> he picked up. just as “Hrer I* ox took him from 1 the stiekv embrace ofthe ••far Baby. I This explains the div ision general's SUCCESSOR TO THE PRINCE GEORGIAN r, plv to the governor :is to ■■ Kousseau or :i rabbit." The applause during Hatfield's Fourth of July oration was such cheers as those tor Uousseau ami the rabbit, blended, with an extra volume thrown in, ami those cheers seemed to follow him, as they did Uousseau and the rab lit, whenever he appeared during the remainder of his stay in the army. Private IJrock. of the Kentucky in fant rv, hail been generally considered a dillident man by his comrades; one who would rather lace a battery ot ar tillery that was throwing chain-shot and shrapnel IV..in short ramie than to approach a woman or a great man. lint (Jen. (Jarlield's Fourth of July speech enthused Uroek to such a de gree that he threw olf all the trammels of restraint, and, watching his oppor tnnitv. api>roachcd the orator-general at his first opportunity, when the Li ter had descended from the stand, to oiler his congratulations in his own Private-IJrock way. The young brigadier was about to mount his spirited charger to rich l to his own camp, when the restive animal gave a leap, startled by the sudden bursting forth of the blasts from a full brass band—full as to members, as to enthusiasm and as to liquid commis sar v stores, that had been given them ext ra. The brigadier's left foot was already in the stirrup and the leap of the horse was almost dragging him on t he ground. |>ut Private IJrock. who was a power ful man. had caught the bridle, close to the enrb-bit. with his lelt hand, and with his right caught also the gallant ollicer. and a painful fall to the latter was averted, while the horse was brought to a sudden standstill, almost thrown upon his haunches. "I am very grateful to you. com rade.” said (Jen. (Jarlield. as soon as he had recovered his equilibrium. "Don't mention it." said Private IJrock. "I'm glad it happened." There was a general roar of laughter at this very blunt admission, and Itiock. seeing that he had made some sort of mistake, added, as the tlush of his face almost equaled the red of the huge bandana about his neck: "That is to say. suh. it couldn't er happened at a better time, suh. ■■l'm decidedly of your opinion, com rade. What is your name and com mand?” •‘Well, suh, that wasn't zackly what I come here to tell you. suh ; but my name’s IJrock. suh, jis Private IJrock. suh; Kaintueky infantry, suh.

In the meantime (Jen. (Jarlield had mounted and as he dashed away he said : ••( Jood-by. ('omrade I!rock ; I 'll think of what you have said." ■That’s right." said Private Uroek to himself. "We can do the lighting and one gin 1 m >' or le.s don’t make niiii'h dif. What’s wantin' now i- lam in’ fur them fools up van." It was probaby not Private IJrock's suggestion that caused the vot ts of (Jen. (Jarlield's dis(riel in Ohio to nom inate and elect 1 1 iiii to congress while he was on the field as a soldier. IJut t hex were doubt less impressed by some of the same inllueliees t hat IJrock was. and the young brigadier went on at- Icm ling to his duties among the so lonsofthe nation while Private Uroek kept marching on. and lighting on. in the field. lie couldn't resign and I doubt less had no desire to do so, but one da v. two vears and more afterward, a piece of a shell, the other portion ol which had taken d life rent directions when it exploded at Armstrong Heights, in the siege of Knoxville, came senrrving along and nl terly ruin -1 ed Private IJrock’s fatigue hat, that j had many brass enblems on it. and it also tore a place in Private IJrock's t head that was not altogether pictur esque. ; Ullt the surgeons on the field sewed up the rent, and he didn't need a new hat for a long time. Private Uroek achieved his resigna tion. however, through that cut in his head which seemed to have let in new ideas. He was discharged because he was supposed to be insane, but he was impressed with the idea that he was needed at Washington to advise with Congressman (Jarlield and he took up his residence in the national capital. (Quickly Kx-Private Uroek found his self-selected protege, and being re cognized the congressman gave him employment about his domestic estal lishment. Aware of IJrock's battle-won infirm ity the statesman general took with apparent seriousness much advice from Mr. Uroek concerning the conduct of national a (fairs, and received most humbly Mr. IJrock’s expressed appro bation of his congressional career. This continued until Mr. Umck's "fugleman"—so to speak hail been elected president. and then Mr. IJrock’s responsibilities very much increased. It had been a comparatively easy mat ter for him to direct and instruct a mere member of Congress, but to tell the president of the United States all ab mt what 1 e should do was another matter. Uravely. however, he struggled with the great responsibilities until that awtul day when at the railway station the quixotic crank. (Jiiitcan, tired the surgeon-made, mortal shot into the gallant (Jarlield. Mr. Uroek was there, serving as a porter, and when the assassin who tired Hial ball fell, with a ghastly cut in his brow, into the hands of those who ar rested him. he carried the scar, still crimson, to the gallows, and IJrock's good right hand had made it. Unt the faithful soldier of his country and servant of his illustrious protege, was taken thence to an asylum for the vio lently insanee. and died there in a week, lost amid all the terrible excite ment of the time. Had the lictter light of this lin-de sieclc day been known then. President (Jarlield and faithful IJrock might lie living and happy yet, saved by the ex positions of the Uoentgen ray. TilK lliTIXm: AMMJKAM. UV WAKIIoN A. ITIITIS. The F.nglish are composite people. Celts, Saxon. Hanes, and Norman- French were their ancestors. Of these component elements it has been the fashion to reckon the Saxon element the largest, and the Celtic element in considerable. The Knglish, warring with the Celts of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and France, have not liked to think themselves cousins of these hos tile nations, and so they have declared themselves Teutons ami claimed kin ship with Ihe Hermans. The Scandi navian nations and Holland have been ignored in this, tor they are small and numerically unimportant nations; more over. Kngland has measured arms and contested commercially with Denmark and Holland. The false theory that the Knglish are merely transported Hermans has obtained through an ex traordinary perversion ol tacts occa sioned by national prejudice. The lan guage argument is about the only one advanced by the upholders of the Her mann-theory, and it at once tails to the ground. Itecanse ninety-live out of a hundred common Knglish words are of Saxon descent. The Jews of the time of Christ spoke (Jreek, and Hebrew was then a dead language: yet there were no Hreeks in Palestine. After .Alex ander's time, the Kgyptians. Syrians, j Phrvgians. and almost all the nations nf Asia Minor spoke Hreek, but they were not (Jrecks. The Indians consti tuting seven-tenths of Mexico's popu lation and a still larger proportion of the populat ion of the other Spanish- American countries speak Spanish. The negroes of North America speak Knglish. The later l!ab\ loniansspoke Assvrian. The Irish and Scotch speak i Knglish. The French. Spanish, and Portuguese speak languages derived from the Latin, yet the Latin element in these nationalities is small, and t heir kinship lies in the fact that the same Frankish, Vandal. (Jothic tribes were grafted upon the same Celtic. Aqiiita nia 11 stuck in all. Anthropology and hist on sustain the theory that the Celtic element in the so-called Anglo-Saxon people equals the leu tonic element, and much more than equals the Saxon. At the close ol Uevolut ion. the in habit ants of the thirteen colonies were most ol them of Uritish stock, the majority ol them Knglish. As there are verv few distinctive Welsh family names, and as probably a fourth ol the families of Ireland and Scotland bear Knglish names, t he proport ion ol \\ clsh # Irsh, and Scotch in the colonies can never he known. We cannot trace their deeendants to-day on account ol this large proportion of English names; I yet we know there were settlement of Irish in New Hampshire and Mary land of Seoteh-Irish in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the Carolinas, of Welsh in Pennsylvania.and of Scotch in North Carolina. Irish. Welsh, and Scotch were to he found widely scattered in all ofthe colonies, of course, hut those mentioned were their principal seats of settlement. Besides, there were the Dutch of New York and New Jersey, anil the Germans of Pennsylvania, numbering in all less than one hundred thousand before the Revolution. There was a large French-]lngnenot element in the population, which Wcise. the French historian of the Huguenots, places as high as two hundred thou sand. Tin* investigations of modern historians have gone far to sustain Weise in this. The only argument against so large an estimate is that the deeendants of t hese Huguenots appear to have nearly vanished: but, if search is made, we find them under such Anglieizations of original French names as Noyes, Tarhox. Burnet,(fillet, Bun ker. Mullins, Doolittle, Toogood. and Petit: and nnehaged French names, such as Raymond. Tracy, Gilliert. Lambert. Millard, are so common that we di> not regard them as strange or foreign. The complied Aeadians were scattered through the colonies, many being settled in Massachusetts, and many, strangely enough, among the Pennsylvania Germans.who completely ahsorlied them. lies Champs. Le Moine and Riviere disappearing to re-emerge as Deshon. Lemon, and Reiter. At the close of the Revolution the population was of the original English stock, and French, Irish, Scotch, and Welsh. To the Celtic element in Un- English population had been added an other Celtic element. The result was a homogeneous ltody of Americans much more Celtic than the' English, i The American was and is more quick, more nervous, more high-strung, than the Englishman, and the reason is that he is more largely Celtic. The German element in the colonies was small, and not assimilate. The “Pennsylvania Germans" retain their dislietive identity even to the present time. Then* is no record of immigration prior to IS I'J. From the close of the Revolution to that date, it is estimated that two hundred and titty thousand foreigners arrived. Of these, by far the greater part were Irish and French. Political trouble in Ireland and France and the slave revolts in Hayti drove thousands of Irish and French to Amer ica. The foreigners who arrived here els fore IHgo assimilated with the niatve population, and their descendants are nndistingnishable from the descendants of earlier arrivals. Cp to lS2ff immigra tion was principally Celtic. The year IS2ff saw the small beginnings of the mighty German immigration. For many years, however, the French im migration exceeded it. and the Irish immigration vastly outnumbered it. So. if any part of the immigration prior to I*4o became assimilated, it was still almost entirely Celtic. Since IS4S, however, the Teutonic immigration has exceeded the Celtic, of late years far exceeded it; and the Teutonic balance in the new English nation that is being developed on this continent lias been largely restored. The German immigration lias been prin cipally low German, precisely the Ger manic element that appears in the Eng lish nation, the Slavonized high tier mans of western Germany sending no immigrants to Rritain in Saxon times and very few to America in modern times. Since the civil war there has been a large Scandinavian immigra tion, and tin* Dutch immigration has alwavs been considerable. Between lS2oand I s'JO there arrived in 11 it* United States one million six hundred thousand English, three hundred and sixteen thousand Scotch, one hundred and eleven thousand Welsh, three mil lion two hundred and forty-one thou sand Irish, and eight hundred and twenty thousand from Great Britain not specified. From France came three hundred and till ecu thousand, from Belgium ninety thousand, from Austria (excluding Hungary) three hundred and fourteen thousand, from Denmark one hundred and forty-four thousand, from Norway and Sweden nine hun dred and torty thousand, from Holland ninety-eight thousand, from Spain and Portugal thirty-seven thousand, from Hungary one hundred and forty-one thousand, from Switzerland one hun dred and sixty-live thousand, from Prus sia and Poland three hundred and t went v-three t honsand, from Italy three hundred and eighty-t wo t honsand, from Canada one million live hundred and thirteen thousand, and from Germany four million four hundred and sixteen Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov’t Report Absolutely pure thousand. The influence of these 1 todies of foreigners on the population cannot be accurately told, as we have no rec ord ofthe return migration. There is practically no return migration of the British nations. A large number of the Germans return, and the so-called Hungarians (Slav subjects of Hungary, but not properly Hungarians) are hard ly ever permanent settlers. The French speaking Belgians and Swiss, and the German-speaking Swiss, go to swell the French and German elements. There is little return migration among them. While three million and thirty thousand Germans have arrived since 1 Stiff, but two million seven hundred and eighty-four thousand are resident at present. Bearing in mind that a considerable part of those who arrived before 1 Stiff are still alive, it will Ih* seen that losses by death cannot account for the discrepancy. It would take a death rate exceeding one hundred in a thou sand to do it, and the rate of the conn try seldom exceeds twenty. Three hundred and seven thousand Italians arrived between ISSff and ISltff, yet on ly one hundred and eighty-two thou sand are resident. The Hungarians show a like large return migration. From figures of the resident British, French, and Scandinavians, it would appear that few of the immigrats from those nations return home. The Freneh- Canadians, of whom we have about eight hundred thousand, formerly birds of passage, are now permanent settlers. Here we have Celts and Teutons in al most the proportions that formed the English nation. The large Ce.ltic im migration antedated the Teutonic, but the high death-rate ofthe Irish has kept its proportions down. While the death rate of Ireland is but eighteen in a thousand, tin* death-rate ofthe Irish in America is twenty-six, and the birth rate of the race has sunk to within a few percent, of that of France. From the number of Germans must Ih* snls traeted the Prussian Poles, Alsatians and Lorrainers, Silesians, Letts, and Wends, people who appear in immigra tion statistics as Germans because citi zens of the empire. Most of onr Jews are reckoned as Germans. All sorts of estimates, ranging from the prol)- abh* one of two hundred thousand to the improbable one of two millions, are made ofthe mimher of onr Jews. The Jewish population being entirely ur ban. people are misled as to the num ber, and greatly overestimate it. For eigners are prom* to exaggerate their numbers in this country. An enthusi astic Irish potentate recently assured the country that twenty million Irsh were ready to march against England under the Stars and Stripes. If all Irish Ikhii since 1 Stiff were still alive, they could not muster one-tenth that number of soldiers. In ISD2 all the foreign-lHirn and the children one or both of whose parents were foreign numbered a little over seventeen mil lion. The baeklMine. and by far the most numerous element, of the popu lation draws its descent from the island of Great Britain. If accessions from that land have not been so numerous as from some others, it must Ih* remem b red that the original population was ot this blood, and that until recent years its percentage of increase was the highest the world lias ever seen. The percentage of increase of this popula tion during, the Revolution, a period of war and political unrest, when thou sands of Tories were leaving for Eng land and English colonies, was four greater than the percentage of increase of the last twenty-live years with all the immigration. Had there never been any foreign immigration after the revolution, perhaps the country would have a larger population today. The elements added t > the Ameri can nation have been so well balanced that they will not change the English character of the population. The Celt of Britain and the Romanized Celt ot France, the Scandinavian Teuton and the German Teuton, arc* all here as they were in Britain. If it be object ed that the Norman-Freneh were not French—l hough modern historians agree that there was little Norse blood in tbelli.—we may answer that French Canada was settled from Normandy. It G true that the Irish Celt is not identical with the Kymrie Celt, and herein the American will differ slight ly from the Englishman. \Ve have Jews in onr population. The English had Jews in their population and at>- sorbed them, and we will absorb them Phi. for it is only persecution that has kept them a distinct nation. There Established ]I G N0.‘28 arc Italians and Slavs in onr jiopnla t.ion, hut they arc not permanent set tlers, and, living in the tenement dis trict as they do, a high death-rate wipes out the second generat ion of a race assnstomed to the country and open air.

The chemical constit uents of the Englishman arc all here, and, by a mysterious transformation that will he maddening for the Irish Leage to contemplate, onr descendants in a few generations will he English, brothers of the land-grahhing empire, the hully of nations, the power that without rhyme or reason knocks down helpless and inotfending harharian gov ernments and substitutes civilized rule, that seizes straits and islands and plants them with lighthouses and fog hells, that arbitrarily interferes in the affairs of pagan princes and forces 'them to cease from their slave forays and warfare with one another. The history of every nation will show that, if it has lieen less aggressive, it is be cause it hasliceu less powerful. A few generations more will see the United States inhabited by a homoge neous nation,a people of one blood, one speech. The descendants of the for eign politician and editor of the foreign newspaper, the agencies most effective in keeping onr people a disorganized mass of unsympathetic nationalities, will not know the language of their forliears. Doubtless they will not even bear their family name, but will re joice in an Anglicization of the origi nal name, which will la- inevitable when the foreign language dies out. Foreign, immigration has sunk to in significant proportions. Even were it to resume its former volume, a million new arrivals a year would not mean that a million arrivals twenty ago meant, when onr population was much smaller, lint immigration will never lie large again, not so much because other countries attract the immigrant, as liecause the European has begun to stay at home. We shall now begin to absorb our foreign citizens, and the national spirit that has sprung into such vigorous life within the last few years will grow, and grow, and grow. Home Journal- HKK XOBLKST DUTY. The forms of life are subject to law, and a broken law avunges itself by making an end of the law breaker. The new woman wilUnot continue long in the land. Like other fashions, she is destined to excite notice, to be admir ed, criticised, ami forgoiten. The li lierty which she evokes will lie fatal to her. If on men’s selection of their mates the future depends—and they are still, by force of nnmliers, able to choose—what likelihood is there that an untamed Marcella—still less the scientific Evadne, and the “sauage vi per” wito chloroform on her toilet ta ble—will attract either Hercules or Apollo? Who would bind himself to spend his days with the Anarchist, the ath lete, the blue-slocking, the agressively philanthropic, the political, the surgi cal woman? And what man would snle mit to an alliance which was termina ble, not when he chose, but when his comrade was tired of him? Such are not the ideals to which he has looked up or the qualities that win his affec tions. The age of chivalry cannot die so long as woman keeps her peculiar grace, which is neither rugged nor stores of erudition, but r human nature predestined to motherhood. She is called upon, in the plain language of Mr. Carpenter, "to I tear children, to guard them, to teach them, to turn them out strong and healthy citizens ofthe great world.” And she has a divine right to all that will fit her tor so noble a duty. HOOD HEALTH Ami a good appetite go hand in hand. With the loss of appetite, the system cannot long sustain itself. Thus the fortifications of good health are broken down and the system is liable to at tacks Oi disease. It is in such eases that the medicinal powers of Hood’ Sarsaparilla are clearly shown. Thousands who have taken Hood's Sarsaparilla testify to its great merits as a purifier ofthe blood, its powers to restore and sharpen the appetite and promote a healthy action ofthe digestive organs. Thus it is,not what we say but what Hood’s Sarsa par.lla does that tells the story and constitutes the strongest recommenda tion that can be urged for any medi cine. Why not take Hood’s Sarsapa rilla now?
