Btand two braeen images of father
and son, who obtained this distinguish
ed mark of tbe admiration of their
follow-oitizens by tbe following inci
dent! -Both the father and tbe son were,
for some offence against the State,
condemned to die. Some favorable
circumstance appearing on the side of
the son, be was granted a remission of
his sontenco under certain provisions ;
in short, he was offered pardon, on the
cruel and barbarous condition tbat he
would become the executioner of bis
father I .
lie at first resolutely refused to pre
serve bis life by means so fatal and de
testable. This is not to be wondered
at; for let us hope for tbe honor of our
nature, tbat there ore very few sons
who would not bare spurned with ab
horrence life sustainod on a condition
so horrible and unnatural. Tbe son,
though long inflexible,yiolded at length
to the entreaties ot a fond parent, who
represented to him tbat bis (tbe fath
er's) life was forfeited, and it would
bo the greatest possible consolation
for him to know that he was the in
strument of his son's preservation.
Tbo son consented to adopt tbe hor
rible means of recovering his life-and
liberty; he lifted the axe but, as it
was about to fall, his arm sank nerve
less, and the axe dropped from bis
hand. Had he as many lives as hairs,
bo could have yielded them all, ono
after another, rather than again con
ceive, muoh lesB perpetrate such an
act. Life, liberty, everything vanish
ed before the dearer interests of filial
affection; ho fell upon his father's
neck, and embracing bim, triumphant
ly exclaimed : "My father, my father I
wo die together 1" and then culled for
anothor executioner to fulfil tbe sen
tence of the law.
Hard must tbe hearts be bereft of
every sensation ot humanity which
could stand insensible spectators of
tho scene. A sudden appeal of invol
untary applause, mingled with groans
and sighs, rent the air. The execution
was suspended; and on a simple re
port of the transaction to tho authori
ties, both were pardoned. High re
wards and honors wore conferred on
tho son ; and finally thoso admirable
imngoa were raised, to oommemorato
a transaction so honorable to human
