Tn his operations he was shrewd.
Protected from fiispicion by a name
he had acquired for honesty and
upright dealing a man of grcat busi
ness capacity, as the sequel proves, and
engaged in many largo enterprise
connected yvith tho improvement aud
advancement of Sun Francisco, he lulled
distrust and covered his tracks 'fit:
such subtlety that a sleuth hound
financier could not have discovered his
retreat. lie took all classes and condi
tions within his ravenous maw. From
the highest to the lowest, the rich and
the poor, the washerwoman, the banker
and the millionaire he paid his respect
to all none were ti o small for his
accommodating genius, none too great
lor his practice. Frin the bankers he
borrowed money by giving. ...forged
Controllers warrants on the city as
collateral security to double the amount
and even offered to pledge them at
twenty five cents on the dollar. Front
other he raifd money on forged notes
on busiuegs firms, and from clerks he
borrowed ou his word or own; note.
v And his exodus was as remarkably
quiet and talented as were his operations
Like the children of Israel, he left
after having borrowed shekles 'of gold
and fcil vcr, without suspicion When
the Pharaoh pursued, the wheels of
their chariot ceased to revolve, and,
although the nea did not overwhelm
them, they JJwero forced by adverse
circumstances to give up the chase and
return m despair. He purchased his
vessel, got her cleared by hw faithful
captaiu for "ports .in the Pacific"
ballasted her with the spoils of a city,
equal in their extent to thoso of many
nations in former days, gathered his
family aud friends around him and.went

at Vm dupes. - He laft his family

Mr Seward was a port of standing
Mediator of church difficulties in thn
county. Contending parties io those
disputes aud troubles which destroy
harmony and brotherly love in churches
would Of ten mutually seek his media
tion, and such was their confidence in
him thateacli party would accept his
advice and settle apparantly irreconci
able quarrels and difficulties.
An amusing incident was once the
rc-tilt of an appeal to . him in one ot
iIichc church difficulties wh'ch had fr
along lime threatened tlje destruction
of a Presbyterian Church ia a neigh
boring town. At hist it was decided to
submit all these difficulties to Mr.
Seward, and that his decision should
be entirely conclusive. He consented
to become the umpire for tho pan ties,
gave them a patient hearing, end
promised to send them his decision in
writing. In duo time he arrived . at
decision, reduced it to writing, and ,
enclosed in it a letter to one , of the
leading members of the church.
At ..this lime Mr." SeWisrd was ir e
owner of a farm to another. p;rt ol tlo.
county which was occupied by a tenant,
to whom ho wrote at ttte timo when he
was about to mail his decision in the
c;s6 oi the church. Iu directing the
letters the one intended for the church
was directed 10 his tenant while the
one intended for the tenant was scut
to the church. It was. duly received
by the proper officer, and , tho members
of the congregation assembled :tp In. r
tho decision oPMr. Seward, vhich was
to heal all difficulties and dissensions.
After, calling the congrepttion to
order, the Moderator, in . appropriate
language,, explained the object of th ; '
'I h?ldiu my hud," siid
he. a ivincr whivdi t aboat to ooen
iiud read to this assembly, which H, I
.' . I IT , 7 - 1
have no doubt, the olive branch that is
to restore harmony and prosperity to
this church and congregation. It
cames from one though a lawyer, loves
the Lord and is a peacemaker." Then,
breaking open Mr. Seward's letter, he
read the following":
'You will take particular care of
that eld, dangerous bhek bull, who
often attacks people when not aware of
hi? presenceand sometimes plunges at
them openly, and you must Carefully
sec to the repair of feuces, that they
are built high and strong, and also see
that the water in the spring is always
I kept pur?."
There was a mystery about this
advice that greatly puzzled tb who'e
assembly, who for a Ion- tiin-.' sat in
profound fdlenee. The Moderator

Aetordingly the conr- itiou knelt,

fervently aditessed thoi Throne

exceed the wisdom of Mr. .Seward's
decision. I have na doubt the Lord
directed him whori he wrote It, for it is
just wli3t we need, and I know it will
restore peace and harmony among us.
Look at its great wisdom, The direc

M.Imonirh us to take good heed in -the

when wc arc not aware of his presence,
and who with his long horns, plunges

savage plunges at this 'church in
These remarks opened the eyes of
aM the people present to the wisdom
and enlightened pi-Hy of Mr. Seward's
decision.' It was unanimously resolveVl
to abide by it, and peace, good will and
prosperity were restored to the church,
brotherly iove took the place of hatred,
and piety increased. Nearly forty
years have passed away since this
remarkable decision was received by
that chuntJi. . Its organization has
been coutinu d to the present time
with uninterrupted prosperity.
