Col. Baker’s Oration.
Than this effort, there has been
nothing said, east*or west, concerning
the Atlantic Cable, of more eloquence
and poetical beauty. What a noble
apostrophe is this to Science ;
“O Sconce! Thou thought-clad leader of the
company of pure and great souls that toiled for
their race, leaving their account! Measurer of
the deeps of earth and the recesses of Heaven !
Apostle of civilization ! Handmaid of religion !
Teacher of human equality and human right!
Perpetual Witness for the Divine Wisdom ! Be
ever, as now, the great Minister of Peace ! Let
thy starry brow, and benign front, still gleam in
the van of Progress, brighter than the sword of
the conqueror, and welcome as the light of Hea
ven !”
The speaker thus alluded to the
comet:
“We have accomplished a great work; we
have diminished space to a point; we have tra
versed one-twelfth of the circumference of our
globe with a chain of thought, pulsating with in
telligence and almost spiritualizing matter- But
even while we assemble to mark the deed, and
rejoice at its completion, the Almighty, as if to
impress us with a becoming sense of our weak
ness, when compared with his omnipotence, has
set a new signal of his reign in heaven. If you
will to-night, fellow-citizens, look eut from the
glare of your illuminated city into the north
western heavens, you will perceive, low down on
the edge of the horizon, a bright stranger pursu
ing its path across the sky. Amid the starry
hosts that keep their watch, it shines attended
by a brighter pomp and followed by a brighter
train. No living man has gazed upon its splen
dors before; no watchful votary of science has
traced its course for nearly ten generations. It
is more than three hundred years since its ap
{iroach was visible from our planet. When last
t came, it startled an Emperor upon his throne,
and while the superstition of bis age taught him
to perceive in its presence a herald and a doom,
his pride saw in its flaming course and fiery
threatening an announcement that his own light
was about to be extinguished. In common with
the lowest of his subjects, he read omens of his
destruction in the baleful heavens, and prepared
himself for the fate which awaits alike the migh
tiest and the meanest. Thanks to the present
condition of scientific knowledge, we road the
heavens with a far clearer perception. We see
in the predicted return of the rushing, blazing
comet through the sky. the march of a heavenly
messenger along his appointed way, and around
his predestined orbit. For three hundred years
he has traveled amoug regions of infinite space:
“Lone, wandering, but not lost.” He has left
behind him shining suns, blazing stars, and glea
ming constellations. Now nearer to the eternal
throne, and again wandering on the confines of
the universe. He returns with visage radiant
and benign; he returns with unimpeded march
and unobstructed way; be returns the majestic,
swift, electric telegraph of the Almighty—bear
ing upon his flaming front the tidings that tbro’-
out the universe there is still peace and order; —
that amid the immeasurable dominions of the
great King, His rule is still perfect; that suns,
and stars, and systems tread their endless circle
and obey the eternal Law.”
The orator concluded with this
faultless peroration, which must have
left the auditors “gazing into the
boundless future with swelling hearts.”
“1 have spoken of three hundred years in the
past; dare I, as 1 close, imagine what will be
three hundred years to cornel It is a period ve
ry far beyond the life of the individual man ; it
Is but a span in the story of a nation. Through
out the changing generations of mortal life, tho’
men grow old and die, the community remains,
the nation survives. As we transmit our institu
tions, so we shall transmit our blood, and our
manners, to future ages and future populations.
What multitudes shall throng these shores! —
What cities shall gem the borders of the sea !
Here, all people and all tongues shall meet. —
Then there shall be a more perfect civilizitfion —
a more thorough intellectual development—a
firmer faith—a more reverent worship. Perhaps,
as we look each to the struggles of an earlier
age, and mark the steps of our ancestors in the
career we have traced, so some thoughtful man
of letters, in ages yet to come, may bring to
light the history of this shore and of this day.—
I am sure, fellow-citizens, that whoever shall af
terwards read the story will perceive that here,
to-day, our pride and joy is dimmed by no stain
of selfishness. Our pride is for humanity ; our
joy is for the world; and amid all the wonders of
past achievement, and all the splendors of pres
ent success, we turn with swelling hearts to gaze
Into the boundless future, with the earnest con
viction that it will yet develop the universal
brotherhood of man.”
A True Benefactor Gone.—
George Comb, the famous Phrenolo
gist, and author of “The Constitution
of Man,” recently died at the age of
70. The London Times , which
chronicles his demise,has the following
in relation to “The Constitution ef
Man,” a work which has been profit
ably read by so many thousands of
Americans, and which can be found
in almost every collection of books,
large or small, throughout our coun
try :
In 1828, be published “The Constitution of
Man, Considered in Relation to External Ob
jects.” This attracted great attention, and
a Mr. Henderson thought so highly of it that
lie subsequently bequeathed a sum of money
to be expended in the production of a very
cheap edition of the book. The novelty of
the circumstance drew to the subject an ad
ditional amount of attention; the cheap edi
tion was a very cheap edition; it sold; caught
the ear of the people ; edition after edition
whe exhausted, until at length it has been
questioned whether any modern volume, af
ter “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” has obtained a lar
ger circulation; 90,500 copies of it have been
printed in Great Britain, besides large sales
la the United States; translations have also
been made into German, French and Swedish.
Hr. Combe was an unwearied laborer, up to
almost the last day of his life, in the promo
tion of education.
Revolutionary Relics. —John
P. Putnam, of White Creek, Wash
ington county, N. Y., a grandson of
Israel Putnam, has in his possession
the, very pistols which Maj, Pitcairn
presented at the Lexington patriots
when he cried out to them, “ Throw
down your arms, ye rebels, and dis*
perse!” In the subsequent retreat
of the red-coats, Pitcairn’s horse was
•hot under him and left on the road,
the saddle and pistols falling into the
hands of the “rebels,” who carried
them* to General Putnam, then in
command of the American forces, by
whom they were used during the
wax*
Ex-Gov. Wallace, of Indiana,
gave an account, at a cable celebra
tion in Indianopolid, of the manner in
which Prof. Morse was treated be
fore Congress, when applying for
assistance to establish a line of tele
graph from Washington to Baltimore.
He said:
Some sixteen years ago I had the honor of
a seat in Congress as the Representative of
this district. The Whig party had just
achieved a great victory. They held posses
sion of the Government. In the midst of the
political strife around us two remarkable
persons appeared—Espy, the “Storm King,”
and Morse, the Electrician. Each was ask
ing for assistance. Each became the butt of
ridicule, the target of merciless arrows of
wit. They were voted downright bores, and
the idea of giving them money was pronoun
ced farcical. They were considered Inono
maniacs, and as Each were laughed at, punned
upon, and almost despised.
A resolution instructing the Com
mittee of Ways and Means to inquire
into tho expediency of appropriating
$30,000 for the above object, was
eventually offered by Mr. Ferris of
New York, “a man of wealth and
learning, but modest, retiring and
diffident in bis demeanor.” Out of
respect to him , the resolution passed.
When it came before the Committee,
which consisted of four Democrats
and five Whigs, Mr. Wallace being a
member, and such men as Millard
Fillmore, Thomas F. Marshall, Dixon
H. Lewis and Jos. R. Ingersoll his
associates, it was met at first with si
lent inattention, which one of the
Whig members broke by moving that
the Committee instruct tho Chairman,
Mr. Fillmore, to report a bill to the
House appropriating $30,000 for the
purpose named. Every Democrat
voted No, and every Whig Yes, ex
cept Mr. Wallace, whose vote would
decide the question, and who asked
leave to consider it, which was gran
ted. He believed the telegraph pro
ject a humbug, but determined to
satisfy himself as to its feasibility by
going to where Mr. Morse was expe
rimenting in the Capitol on a wire
stretched from the basement story to
the ante-room of the Senate Chamber.
The ante-chamber was crowded with
Representatives and strangers when
he entered. The ex-Governor said
he
“requested permission to put a question to
the “madman” at the other end of the wire.
It was granted immediately. I wrote the
question and handed it to the telegrapher.—
The crowd cried “read! read!” In a very
short time the answer was received. When
written out the same cry of “read! read!”
came frem the crowd. To my utter astonish
ment I that the madman at the other
end of the wire had more wit and force than
the Congressman at this end. He turned the
laugh upon me completely. But, as you
know, we Western men are never satisfied
with one fall; that never less than two out of
three can force from us an acknowledgment
of defeat. So I put a second question, and
there came a second answer. If the first
raised a laugh at my expense, the second
converted that laugh into a roar and a shout.
I was more than satisfied. I picked up my
hat, bowed myself out of the crowd, and as I
passed along the halls and passages of the
Capitol, that shout followed me. As a matter
of course, I voted in the affirmative of the
motion then pending before the Committee,
and it prevailed. The Chairman reported
the bill. The House, if I mistake not, passed
it nem con, without asking the Yeas and
Nays. And thus concurring, the Whig por
tion of that Committee, and that old New
Yorker, played the part of Isabella towards
Mr. Morse in this his last struggle to demon
strate the practicability of the most amazing
invention of the age, the Magnetic Telegraph!
Polish Beauties. —Bayard Taylor
thus speaks of Polish feminine loveli
ness as he saw it at the Warsaw
horse-races where forty or fifty thou
sand people were assembled:
“What more interested me than the speed
of the horses waa the beauty of the Polish
women of the better class. During two years
in Europe, 1 have not seen so great a number
of handsome faces as I saw in an hour yes
terday. It would be difficult to furnish a
larger proportion from the acknowledged
loveliness of Philadelphia, Baltimore or
Louisville. I heard of an American marry
ing a Polish lady at Dresden the other day,
and I must commend bis taste. These maids
of Warsaw are not only radiant blondes,
whose eyes and hair remind you of corn-flow
ers among ripe grain, but also dark-eyed
beauties, with faces of a full Southern oval,
lips round and delicate as those of an Amo
rette, and a pure golden transparency of
complexion. The connoisseur /of woman’s
beauty can nowhere better compare these
two rival styles, nor have so great a difficul
ty in deciding between them.”
Origin of English Penny Post
age.—A traveler sauntering through
the lake districts of England some
years ago, arrived at a small public
house just as the postman stopped to
deliver a letter. A young woman
came out to receive it; she took it
into her hand, turned it over and over,
and asked the change. It was a
large sum —no less than a shilling.
Sighing heavily, she observed that it
came from her brother, but that she
was too poor to take it io, and she
accordingly returned it to the post
man. The traveler wa£ a man of
kindness, as well as observation ; he
offered to pay the postage himself,
and in spite of more reluctance on
the girl’s part than he could well ac
count for, he did pay it, and gave her
the letter. No sooner, however, was
the postman’s back turned, than she
confessed that the proceeding had
been concerted between her brother
and herself; that the letter was
empty—that certain signs on the di
rection conveyed to her all that she
wanted ta know ; and that as neither
of them could afford to pay the enor
mous postage charged, they had de
vised this method of franking the in
telligence desired. The traveler pur
sued his journey, and as he plodded
over the Cumberland Fells, he mused
upon the badness of a system which
drove people to such straits for means
of correspondence, and defeated its
own objects all the time. With most
men, such musings would have ended
before the close of an hour; but this
man was Rowland Hill; and it was
from this little incident, and the re
flections, that the whole scheme of
penny postage was derived.-
Modern Gallantry.
In comparing modern with ancient
manners, wo are pleased to compli
ment ourselves on the point of gal
lantry ; a certain obsequiousness, or
deferential respect, which wo are
supposed to pay to females, as fe
males.
I shall believe that this principle
actuates our conduct, when I can
forget, that in the nineteenth century
of the era from which we date our
civility, we are but just beginning to
leave off the very frequent practice
of whipping females in public, in
common with the coarsest male of
fenders.
I shall believe it to be influential,
when I can shut my eyes to the fact,
that in England women are still occa
sionally—hanged.
I shall believe it, when actresses
are no longer subject to be hissed off
the stage fy gentlemen.
I shall believe it, when Dorimant
bands a fish-wife across the kennel;
or assists the apple-woman to pick up
her wandering fruit, which some un
lucky dray has just dissipated.
I shall believe in it, when the Dor
imanta in humble life, who would be
thought in their way notable adepts
in this refinement, shall act upon it
in places where they are not known,
or think themselves not observed—
when I shall see the traveler for some
rich tradesman part with his admired
box-coat, to spread it over the de
fenceless shoulders of the poor woman
who is passing to her parish on the
roof of the same stage coach with
him, drenched in the rain—when I
shall uo longer see a woman standing
up in the pit of a London theater, till
she is sick and faint with the exer
tion, with men about her, seated at
their ease, and jeering at her dis
tress ; till one, that seems to have
more manners or conscience than the
rest, significantly declares that “ she
should be welcome to his seat, if she
were a little younger and handsomer.”
Place this dapper warehouseman, or
that rider in a circle of their own fe
male acquaintance, and you shall
confess you have not seen a politer
bred man in Lothbury.
Lastly, I shall begin to believe that
there is some such principle influen
cing our conduct, when more than
one-half of the drudgery and coarse
servitude of the world shall cease to
be performed by women.
Until that day comes, I shall never
believe this boasted point to be any
thing more than a conventional fic
tion ; a pageant got up betwixt the
sexes, in a certain rank, and at a
certain period of life, in which both
find their account equally.
I shall bo even disposed to rank it
amoung the salutary fictions of life,
when in polite circles I shall see the
same attentions paid, to age as to
youth, to homely features as to hand
some, to coarse complexions as to
clear—to the woman, as she is a wo
man, not as she is a beauty, a fortune
or a title.
1 shall believe it to be something
more than a name, when a well-dres
sed gentleman, in a well-dressed com
pany, can advert to the topic of /c
--male old age without exciting, and
intending to excite, a sneer: when
the phrases “ antiquated virginity,”
and such a one has “ overstood her
market,” pronounced in good compa
ny, shall raise immediate offence in
man, or woman, that shall hear them
spoken.-
-Charles Lamb.
The new postmaster at Oswego,
N. Y., has introduced female clerks
into his office, apparently with great
success. Men call for letters twice
a day now where they formerly called
but once. — Exchange.
It is the females they are after and
not the mails; the only letters they

The swelling was lanced by his physician, and dis
charged most profusely; after that no’ less than eleven
ulcers formed on the leg and foot at one time. Wa
had five different physicians, but none relieved him
much; and the last winter found him so emaciated
and low that he was unable to leave hia bed, suffering
the most excruciating pain. During this time the
bone had become so much affected, that piece after
piece came out, of which he has now more than twenty
five preserved in a bottle, varying from one-baif ft) one

hopes of his recovery; but at this time we were In
