I give them very nearly iu the words of
tho narrator, permltlinii him to nnoak
tiercafter, but avoiding double mark of
quoUtiou . ......
When 1 first met Colonel Hurr, be be
gan, bo wna an old man, and ai you know
under a cloud, not bowed down but de
crepid, I exiH-cted to neo him. but
fudilyand fair-faced, with the brilliant
oyo and erect oirriago of a man of lib
prime. Our leave-taking on this occasion
uiott impreiw.ed mo "You must come and
wo me often," aaid he, "1 am an old man ;
you are young, and my experience of the
world and nuionij men bus been bucIi that
1 may Iki of beiietU to you."
That Washington disliked Hurr Is a
matter or history ; this was duo partly to
HmnlltonV inlluenco, but chlolly, 1 think
to Utirr'a lively Wen witicisms on bis
generalnhlp. Hurr thought Washington
n poor General, and. conceited youngster
iu ho wan, waa iptllo outspoken in bis
opinions. Ho never sought to impress
his peculiar views of the man upon the
young, however, n an incident which I
can relato will show. In our lutorcotirso
as coidinl and unalfocted aa that between
father and aou-ho was speaking ono day
of tho battle of Monmouth, which he
charwctcrUed aa a succession of
mere sklrmlsbors, magnlfled by fiilsoin
historians Into a battle, and wliich,
ho said, might hnvo been won for tho
patriot arms on several occasions had
Washlngton-and hero ho clu-ckod him
sell, and after a moment added 'Let us
atop here. 1 would on no account de
stroy the veneration and esteem that you
have for tho character of Washington."
Andrew JacUon in his younger years
was an anient admirer of Hurr, and was
to have been the latlor'a trusted Lieuten
ant in tho proKsed Mexican exhibition.
lie also stoutly defended him nt the time
of his trial for treason iu Itlcbmoud In
1S07. Twenty.ono years nftor, in 182S,
their positions had changed, Jackson
was the Uemocrntio candidate for Presi
dent, and Hurr was living obscurely iu
Now York, poor and under n cloud they
woro not on speaking terms. Unrr had
letters nnd papers hi hia possession that
would have nipped Jackson's Presidential
asHratlous in the bud ; ho also bold the
fate of morn than one-half the political
aspirants of that day at hia disposal, nnd
1 oiteu wondoied at bis forbearance in
not using this power the more, aain many
cases in so doing ho might have cleared
himself. Hut I think tldollty to friends
was one of his most striking traits. Hurr
voted for Jackson for lrealdeut,aud bis
appearance at the (Mills I remember
perfectly. Tho i-ollliig place woro then
In Howling green, near tlie Hattery, ami
on this ociiislon there waH gathered tboro
very much audi a turbulent crowd as now
disgraced our elections. At length Colo
nel Hurr, accompanied by a filend, ono
orihoHwartouts, 1 think, drove up, but it
was soon whispered that hu was present.
Kveryone hocmed anxious to sco him ;
tliu noisy demonstrations of the crowd
wore hushed, and a lane was formed
through which ho advanced to deposit
hU ballot. Homo of tho cltUous oven lift
ed their hatH In spontaneous tribute to
tho man. There wna n presence about
Hurr rarely met with, which made him a
marked man In any cmuiwiny, nnd pre
served him from personal insult. Indeed,
I never knew an Instance In which be
was Insulted personally, though ho was
ho often and so grossly assailed by por
sons at a distance.
Another thing not gengrnlly known, I
bollovo, la tbit Hurronce projected a com
prehensive work on tho men mid events
or the ltevolutlon , his moro Intimate
frlonds, however, know this to liavo been
ono of tho most chorlshed plank of his
latter life. For it be had collected many
I t tors and turnera of value, which, at the
timo or Ida (light to lairopr, wore sent for
wife kTpliigto hla accomplished laughter,
Thoodosia, in South Carolina. When she
enmo to meet hor father In J812, thoy ac
rompiinicd her cu board tho ill-fated
I'dlHolfiiul were Ioit with berin the ship
wreck of that vessel oil the Hattcra const.
Hence tho project ww abandoned, to the
Incalculable low of American lilcrature.for
Hurr had it In Ida power (ogive a truthful
history of tho great contest, and could
have fortified bin por-ition with tho neces
sary paper and document. I arn certain
that ho would have disproved many of
imi nsscrtiona oi uiuwu Historians, and
that a jusler estimate than ,s eornrrion of
some prominent characters might have
tif en gathered irom ma work, especially
or Jelfcrwin and Hamilton. Hurr was
never himself nftor tht loss of the Patriot.
Ho was moro affected by it than Is gener
ally Kupposd. I thmk bo was broken
hearted. Often be was urged to rcpl) to
the calumnies circulated concerning him,
as a duty ho owed to himself, to hia fami
ly, and to posterity at large. "Ah ! " he
would say, "of what use are words ? All
my papers woro lojt in the shipwreck
th'u', bereft mo and my daughter : let
them do with the old man what they
Or Colonel Utirr'a politoni-M and court
liness inticli has been said, and he proba
bly excelled in these qualities all other
men or his diiv; courtesy and grace were
innate qualities without olish denied to
most public men. I think, however, that
It was bis personal magnetism which
gave him bis great pouer with women.
In this connection let mo relate an in
cident which occurred some time after his
passing tho office or Fowler, tbe
phrenologist, in Fulton street, in whose
m inuo w a piaster can oi isurrs neau nau
been placed, and noticed tw o ladles, richly
d reused, standing lieforo it, one waa
young, the other old. Aa I paused, the
young lady said Impatiently "Grandma,
what is thero hereto interest you so?"
"Why " Mid the othfr, "here is a cast of
Colonel Hurr,'' "And what of that?"
was the reply. "An ! my dear," said the
old lady, iu an Indescribable tone, "you
never knew Colonel Ilurr. 1 met iitm
often in society, and I am sure he was the
most lovable man I ever met.'

In conclusion, allow mo to notice a very I euougbt to accon modato the whole city

Parton in his "Life ofAtiron Hurr," con- , all such modern improvements. It is
cerniug tho erection or Colonel Utirr'a i divided Into departments for every "kind (

stono was not erected until some time
after tbe Colonel's death ami then under

formed this frti'tidly act. Hut this story
Is untrue. Tho facts of tbe case are these i
When Colonel Hurr's estate canto to be
settled there were found a largo number
of bad debts, and soma of these, after tho

Ycara have passed by, and the circum
atanco baa long since ceased to be a theme
of wonderment. A few weeks since n
peddler, an old acquaintance of the fam
ily to which the milaing infant belonged,
chanced to be traveling in tbo vicinity of
Tunkbannock, In tho adjoining county,
and discovered the long lost child. He at
once conveyed this intelligence to tbe
parents In Wllkesbarre, and they repaired
to tho place named and fully identified

luck on tne part of tbe driver aro verv de'
airable qualities. A strong hand and a
determined will nearly always suffice to
stop runaways, if nothing breaks. If the
lines break or tbe bits give awav, an ac
tive person may, without much difficulty,
climb over the dash-board, get on tbe
animal's back, and check him by grasping
his ncbe. Leaping from tbe carriage
while tbe horse is running is almost cer
tainly to involve more or less injury. An
active person may do it safelv, but it is
the part of pluck, and generally that of
wisdom, to stay by tbe carriage as long
tbo traces hold. When the horse is fairly
stopped, treat him kindly, and if possible,
let him stand until bis nerves are quieted.
If a horse is running toward you, courage
and adroitness may enable you to stop
him. If you can secure a 'hold on tho
reins, or one of them, near the bits, you
aro all right. Hold on, and ata few rods
at most, tho horse will stop, unless he is '
a most extraordinary animal. In caso of
a span, if you stop one horse, the other
must stop, too, if nothing gives way. We
can tell those who liavo nevar tried it that
it is not a pleasant pastime to stand by
the roadside and watch tbe appreach of a
frantic horse, making calculation tbe
while to catch some part of the harness.
Still it can be done, and is done many
times every year. An equestrian has
a better chance every way to check tho
horse then has tbe driver of a vehicle.
Ono trouble is that tho motion of the ani
mal causes bis mane to stream out and
embarrass tbe rider's bold on tbo lines. '

One of tbo great objections to roots is the

about crying "como eat me," suggested
tho immediate compliance with their re

thinncsa of flguro and tightness of ap

a somewhat difficult matter. Kvcn the
bulging of a ptiro would bo too much
when the notion of approximating ladieu

Perhaps modern garments would suggest
that the only safe way is to carry the
money loose in the pocket (the absence
ofholes being well ascertained). Cer
tainly, the modern fashion of purse-beer-ing
is one which is roost dangerous and
most tempting to thieves. Our wonder
in thinking of the matter ia not that rob
