Henry., Wilson, Vice President of the
1 luted States, diet! in Washington City
on the morning of tlie 2'2i.
Henry Wilson was born at Farming,
ton, X. H., on the lGth of February,
1812. I Us parents b-nng poor lie was
denied the privileges of a thorough ed
ucation, but having inherited a taste for
reading and an insatiable thirst for
knowledge, he let no opportunity es
cape him to store his mind with useful,
practical information, and thus in tlie
onrse ot time became" one of the best

of purpose, elected fum to positions of
honor and trust. In 1840 he entered
the Presidential campaign, de'iverisig
more than tixty speeches aiid doing
most effective service for Harrison, lie
was thrice elected to the Massachusetts
Assembly, and four times returned to
its Senate. In. 1S45, together with
Whittier, the poet, he was selected to
carry-to -Washington aiid present the
great anti-slavery petition from .Massa
chusetts agati-jst the anuexati6n of Texas,
lie edited the Boston Daily Republican
from 184S to 1850, making it the lead
ing. -anti-slavery journal of the country
ai that time. He was a member of the
Massachusetts Constitutional Conven

Free Soil candidate for Governor of the
State. .In 1855 lie was elected United

erelt, and was re-elected in 1859 by a
unanimous vote. As a Senator he was
an active opponent of the slave power,
and was one of the very pillars of the
Government during the late rebellion.
All through the great reconstruction
sMugg'e, says the Orejonian, he was
one of the most careful of those states
men who considered it their first duty
to see that the advantages which liberty
had gained in the war should not be
frittered away." Kut when all these
were secured, he was among the fore
most in endeavoring to heal the wounds

tions between the North and the South.
Since hip election as Vice President in
1872, he has been so much out of health
that his laliors have been subject to fre
quent interruptions, but he found time
to finish his great historical work, com
menced some years ago, ou the "Rise

public service, "would entitle him to the
gratitude of the country, and placo-liim
among her great men.

the entire 'ion. -
A S'ays the Virginia kronuk: Among
the few who liave reason' to be thankful
for the fire is a lady whose home was
on-Xortli C street.: She had been bed
rid pen for months having lost the use
of her limbs.; When the .fire approach
ed her dwelling site was carried out on
n blanket and was as feeble as an infant.
Within half an hour, to tlie amazement
of herself and 'family, she discme.-ed
that the use of lier limbs had returned,
aid from that moment she has been a
woll woman. Her great fright had
worked a cure.

Mixers' Luck. Minern' luck is il
lustrated by an incident ot mining at
Central City, Colorado. About two
years ago two young men with a joint
capital of $400, were offered a half inter
est in a gold mine at Central if they
would sink it 30 feet deejer. Upon
each side were the Veto and other
paying lodes, but these had good roads
to the mills and furnaces" of wealthy
companies- Moreover,'' the mine was
difficult of access; it was necessary to
carry the ore in gunny sacks for a con
siderable distance; then to paek it ivpou
ruulesjnnd thus bythe time it reached the
mills the gold in it would not pay ex
penses. The young workers when they
had spent all their ready money becamo
discounted and abandoned the con
tract. This year two new speculators
came and undertook to go on with the
work on the same terms. They had not
sunk more than two feet in this aban
doned claim when they strucK ore
worth $2,000 per ton.
'J"iic Mark Lane J&jwesii' weekly
review of the corn trade says: Haiti
has indefinitely postponed much of the
autumnal sowing in England, with the
bad condition of samples and continued
large imports. Many maikets aie a
shilling cheaper, but farmers arc reluct
ant to accept lower prices except for
poor samp'es. When foreign arrivals
slacken, as soon they must, and rents are
paid, belter trade at more paying prices
seems more than likely. It appears that
the French reports liave been favorable.
No sowing has been done in some dis
tricts. This has hardened prices of
wheat in Paris and the provinces, al
though flour is somewhat cheaper
Prices in Belgium are firm, and in
Holland stationary. In Germany the
markets are inactive and generally un
changed, though at Danzig and in Hun
gary quotations are lower. The Russian
markets show no change.
Tub Geneva Award. A Wash
ington special sajs the commission
appointee, under the act ot congress on
the distribution ot tlie Geneva award
will finish their labors on the 20th of
January, and will have about $8,000,-
000 of the $15,000,000 uuawarded to
claimants. The insurance companies
and individuals who took war prem -
urns have made a combination, and will
endeavor to have a bill passed through
congress at its coming sess on to cover
these losses. There is much feeling
over the matter. The direction of legis
lation and recommendatiors of eongress
ional committees heretofore have been
against such claimants, on the ground
that the war premiums are excessive,
and that with few exceptions insures
made money. There are other claimants
for indirect damages, ru'ed out by act
ot congresa, who will join the insurance
companies in the effort to pass a sup.
p'ementary act. Insurers claim they
took the risks with the expectation tha1
congress would relieve tnem if tney
became baukrupt through ' the contin
gencies of the war. There is a prospect
of these bills being defeated, so that the
$8,000,000 unexpended will go to keep
company with the French spoliation
fund in the treasury.
