Drunken Man Whom Ben Butler
Scared Sober.
Amusing Story of the Famous General
and His Bibulous Employe in the
Custom House at New
One of the most talented of the
group ot poets and writers of tiction
who. in the early fifties, earned their
living in the New York etisloms house,
was Theodore 11. Thorpe, lie had as
associates there Kichard Grant White,
Richard II. Stoi'd-rd, P'l-'-e Godwin,
Fitzhueh Ludlow .• \.
itzgreen llallock, v.
posed ill
his custom house days the poem by
which he is best known, "Marco Itozar
rls." The literary men of that day
wero of the opinion that Thorpe would
be as surely remembered by future
generations as any member of the lit
etai\ group ol the Xew York customs
house, lint they were mistaken.
Air. Thorpe was an old man when I
saw hint rather tall, gray-haired, and,
as I now recollect him, with a small
mustache. He was not the typical poet
in appearance, and wns, in fact, quite
as much of a humorist in his private
life as a dreamer, lie was very fond of
telling anecdotally some of his early
experiences as an editor, and especial
ly of his association with Gen. Benja
min P. liutler. Many were the stories
that he told me of that picturesque
figure, !:ut none threw such an inter
esting light on Butler as did the story
of the manner in which he treated a
man who had practically insulted him.
Alter Gen. Butler had captured
New Orleans," said Mr. Thorpe, "and
established a military government
there, he, of course, took charge of the
customs house, lie knew that I had
been editor at one lime of the New
Orleans Bee, and so was familiar with
the city, lie also knew that 1 had
been an employe of the customs house
in Xew York city, and had some knowl
edge ol the work of the surveyor's de
partment. lie therefore asked me to
accept appointment as surveyor of the
New Orleans custom house and, to tell
the truth now, I was very glad of it,
for at that time I was not financially
very prosperous.
"I had known of a citizen' of Now
Orleans, a man of about my own age,
who had been a union man at a time
when it was almost dangerous to ex
press union sentiments. was a man
oi courage, and lie stuck to his convic
tions. But the war and his union pro
clivities had cost him all he possessed,
and he was having hard work to make
a bare living.
"1 suggested to Gen. Butler that it
might be a good plan to appoint this
man to some subordinate place in the
customs house, and told all about
Send him to me to-morrow morn
ing at ten clock,' said the general.
'The result of that meeting was that
the man in question became a customs
house employe. He was a faithful ser
\tint, did good work, but In.1 had one
tailing. He would occasionally drink
more than was good for him—but al
ways after office hours.
"One evening he was sitting in the
lobby of the St. Charles hotel, consid
erably the worse for his jollification,
and when he was in that condition he
was likely to sny impudent things.
After a while Gen. Butler came into
the hotel, and my friend, spying him,
-.ald in a stage whisper to some one
near by:
'Look there goes old Cockeye!'
"Gen. Butler turned, having caught
the epithet. He fixed that, penetrating,
but oblique eye of his, with intense se
verity upon the speaker, and recog
nized him. Then, without a word, he
walked on.
".My friend was made sober in an in
stant by that look. Almost distracted
by the thought that he was doomed to
lose his customs house position, he
came to my room at midnight, woke
me up, told me what he had said, and
asked what he should do. My answer
was that the only thing he could do
was to call upon Gen. Butler in ihe
morning and apologize for his con
"The next morning my friend went
to Gen. Butler's headquarters and
waited his turn a long line of callers
were ahead of him. At last, trembling
and not knowing what to .-,ay, ho stood
before the general. 'Old Cockeye'
fixed that penetrating, but oblique eye
upon him so fiercely that he expected
any moment, to hear thai he was under
arrest and would bo .^hoi at sundown.
For what seemed an age the genoral
glared tit the poor man. Then he
'.Mr. So-and-So,' he said, 'I would
give $m.ooo if 1 could get as drunk as
you wero last night and be as sober
as you are this morning. Get back to
your work. Good-morning.'

"I had a client this morning," said
the young lawyer, "who certainly did
give mo a queer joit. You know 1 was
married about a month ago. .'v'.y wife
and I returned from our wedding trip

He was a man about my own :uid
he explained his business to me
abruptly. 'I want you,' he said 'to got
me a divorce, as quick as you can.'
"Yes, that's all there is to It. Don't
see any point? Well, maybe not, but
somehow, I felt as if I had tumbled
out of an airship."
