A long Htandinj? and gcnorallr ac
knowledged claim by Capt. W.W. Umth,
f Lockort, tbat he was tho first person
to volunteer in the Union army in 1861
has been Bucccwiully deputed by Col.
T. J. Kennedy, of Auburn. Capt.
' Bosh's claim u made on the fact that
ha had been anticipating the call for
. troops by President Lincoln aftor the
firing on Fort Sumter and had not toft
the telegraph office in Lockport in ex-
All. ' At noon on April io mo nuws
that the President had issued the call
for troops was received. Bush ran at
nee to his place of buainajA,
drew up an enlistment roll
and signed it Ho then proceeded
. to enlist others. Ho raised a company,
was made captain, and went to the front
with the first troops. This fact has b n
a source of much pride to Capt. Bush,
and has made him widely known.
Col. Kennedy, of Auburn, sets up tlu)
Jaira that as early as November, 18U(J,
seeing that an armed strngglo between
the north and the south was inevitable-,
he urged tho immediate enlist men t of
men to bo drilled in anticipation of
sail for troops. In January, 1801, he
ppliod to Governor Morgan for author
Ky to enlist a company, and his anplica.
, Hon was placed on 111 o Jan. 17. Ho did
mot wait to rccoivo tho authority, but
proceeded to enlist men. When Fort
lumler was tired on, April 13, 1801, ho
had 175 men under drill. He otTerod
the services of -himself and montothe
aUto tho same day, and tho samo day
kis enlistment roll, his namo being tho
first one upon it, was received and en
tered in the adjutant general's office.
There were too many men for one com
pany, so a full oompuny was selected
from them and became Company C of
tho Nineteenth regiment, Si. x. o. v.,
f which regiment Kennedy was mado
olonol. The remainder of tho men ho
abated were distributed among other
companies. Tho claim mado by Col.
Kennedy is supported by records of tho
state. That Capt. But-h was tho first
volunteer under tho call of President
Linooln for troops, howovor, thoro is
arobably no doubt.
Hiving Artificial Colon to Flower.
"In order to meet the demand for now
varieties of tho roso, artillciul hues may
bo given to them by means of a ooloring
natter placed at tho root," said a Mil
waukee florist, "but it is by no moans a
recognized pnictico of tho trado. Thoro

"Can yon tell me about some of the
rich men with whom you have been ac
quainted?" "Well, my personal acquaintance has
extended to a few millionaires. There
was Mr. William E. Dodge. He was
very wealthy, and he made use of a
great deal of his money in promoting
religious and reformatory measures. In
many respects he was a remarkably
good man. I knew Mr. A. Stewart. I
saw him a few months before his death
and had a talk with him at his house.
He informed me that one of the m?ans
by which he had commanded success
was the system of giving people who
purchased goods from him the full
worth of their money. Mr. Theodore
B. Stout was one of the ableBt bankers
and brokers I ever knew. I suppose I
must includo Mr. Demas Barnes in my
list of very rich men ; but Demas lost a
portion of his money in the newspaper
business. Isuppoio Mr. W. K. Conner
is worth a million dollars. Hon. John
Morrissey, the Harpers, Moses Taylor,
Hollis L. Powers. Jim Fhdc, M. O.
Roberts, J. P. Hall and Jim Bennett
can also be appended to the list. I p re

Andrew Stout, presidont of the New

of Wall street. He lives in elegant
style, and has his home on tilth

and fine horses. Bev. Matthew Hale
Smith said of him : "Mr. Sage uses his

of the hi ;! clerk, an old fellow in the

Variety In Living.
Cor. Chicago Tribune.
In no city on tho globe are there so
many ways of living as In tho city of
New Y'ork. Ono may live hero as one
pleases, in the most sumptuous or the most
simple manner, or, if so minded, one may
not live at all. A man may spend a million
or keen breath In his body on $100 a year.
Few of our citizens have any just concep
tion what luxuries aro necessary to some
of their fellows, and what common ne
cessities aro luxuries to others. The
latest effeminacy and the last senat
or are often not more than a singlo liloek
apart. In adjoining houses that look ex
actly alike arc every comfort and even'
privation ; superabundance smiling through
tho walls ut starvation, tho chaplet of
roses against the ciownof thorns. No
New Yorker knows or cares for his neigh
bor, unless by accident; ho is always ig
norant where anybody residcs.and is as dis
tant in mind nnd maimer from his fellow
citizens as If they were, his antipodes.
Here you may livo where, how, and with
whum you liko, and no one Le tho wiser.
Not even curiosity is felt about you; and
it is measurably from this general indiffer
ence that people live so differently, aud
often so queerly.

Foote said: "If the senator from New

and toll him in all honesty that he could

he would grace ono of the tallest trees
