and received n liberal education at Aber

fow nilloa from that of Ijrd Myron's
Infancy, and tlio latter waa often booh
by young McLcod until ho grew to man
hood. At tlio tlmo of tlio war of 1813 be
tween this country and Client Hrltnln
tho general was moro than HO yearn old
and u mildler In tho regular Hrlttnh
army. Ho fought with bravery nt Lun
Uy'u Ijiiio and ovcral other ImttlcH of
that notable ntrugglo, nnd nt ltn close
was truu8ortod witli tho other Hritlsli
troois to tho continent of Kurono, and
Immediately engaged with Wellington
In tho niaHterlyciiuimlRiiH which cniRlied
tho txiwer of the Unit Nnpoleon. Ilo wiw
actively engaged an captain of light hus
sars in all tlio bnttlcH preliminary to
Waterloo, mid took a bravo part in thnt
"llavo yon any vivid memories of
tlieso great battles?" 1 asked.
"Very vivid, indeed," ho nnawored,
"but tho common nolillor cannot judge
much of what la going on. Ilia vision
is very limited. Ilo la only taken up
with tlio work before him, nnd baa no
tlmo to reflect upon or contumplato tho
grand proportions of tho conflict. Bo far
as I can now remember, there waa noth
ing peculiar in my part in tho battle of
Waterloo. It waa tho samo old story
over again a constant round of (lrlng
and marching and countermarching un
til tho victory was nunounced. I had
no Idea that n victory bad been won
until that time. 1 only know thnt my
company nnd my regiment had not re
treated ; It wna only when 1 read tho
accounts of tho battle during tho next
fow dnyathat I gained any nilecmato idea
of its magnitude."
A fow years subs win cut to tho war
with Napoleon, den. McLcod emigrated
with hia family to Canada, and nt length
brought up at tho town of Prescott, and
became editor nnd proprietor of tho
principal paper there, Tho despotic
treatment of liU ftllow Scotchmen by
tho Dritish olllclnls in Canada called
forth a just condemnation from ids pen;
and when nt length tho revolution of
1637-33 came, ho was, by natural seloo
tit a, made one of tho most trusted lead
ers. As tho rebellion grow in magni
tude, ho was given a major general's
commission, and took part In tlio thick
est of tho fray. When tho etrugglo bo
camo hopeless and tho patriots wero
executed daily with Brent Imrbarity on
ovcry hand, ho lied to tlio United States,
and hero immediately becamo tho es
pecial object of search by tho United
States authorities, den. Scott, who had
becu hU friend, was ordered to arrest
hint for violation of tho neutrality laws;
and our hero being fearful that, if lie
wero captured, bo would bo delivered up
to his merciless adversaries across tho
lakes, took every precaution to secreto
himself. But den. Scott was not easily
to bo baflled; ho hunted his man up nnd
down tho entire length of tho frontier
twice: and tho recond time, in Detroit,
entirely worn out nnd lielng assured
that ho would neither bo delivered over
to tho Dritish authorities nor soverely
punished hero, den. McLcod gavo him
self up, nnd was booh after released from
custody. Tho history of this remark
ablo cliaso is as fascinating nan romance
Tlio redoubtable Scotch general seemed
to lead a charmed life.
At ono place where it wna thought ho
had Btonped with a known sympathizer
with tho patriot cause, tho Americans
mauoa inorougn searcii or tlio House.
When they camo to tho second lloor, tho
owner of tho bouse showed them ovcry
apartment, nnd permitted them to search
thoroughly until they camo to the last
one, Hero, said ho, "Is my old moth
era room. It will probably not lie worth
your whllo to spend much time in search'
lug It." And throwing open the door
no Bliowcu tho oltl lady In can and
gown, with her back to tho door, ousily
engaged in knitting. The ofdeers did
not wish to Lcurch tho room, and tho
general, who was thus disguised, was
tossed. This incident hnppcncd in what
Is now called tho Franklin houso in this
city. At another tlmo our hero rodo in
tho boot of a otngo coach for moro than
twenty miles with (Jen. Scott, who was
hunting him, in the Lodv of tho coach.
It is unnecessary to state, perhaps, that
tho driver waa a patriot sympathizer.
On still another occasion, when tho
pursucro of tho general were close upon
Lira, he overtook a negro who was mak
ing Blow progress nlong tho road with a
lamo mulo. Tho general wns driving a,
fluo team. A bargain was Immediately
etruck und exchange made, on the con
dition that they should uxchango over
coats nnd hats also, and that the darky
should drive on us fast as the team could
travol. Tlio rrcncral'a pursuers came up
to tho raulo teamster; but cwiny tlio

Immediately Upon tho general's leav

faithful wife, with her four children,
was left lcliind In a iierfect horror of

worse than nil, sho feared that harm had

when ho was released by tho United

cnusea which led to the bloody revolt.

having them put under ground, and na

latest professed objection is that tho
burled pipes of the Steam Heating com
pany leak steam nnd keep the ground
about them ho hot nnd damp that a sub
way aystein in It cannot bo successfully
operated. It will not be nt nil surprising
if they eventually claim like disastrous
Inlluencca from tho contiguity of Cat
viulsts nnd llaptists living near their
lines. Surely tliey will if by so doing
they can wodc delay In tho burying of
Uevcrtlug to this matter recalls somo
Interesting facts that have been lost
sight or for n quarter of n century, but
that aro worthy of resurrection and re
tention in remembrance. New York wns
tho first city in the world thnt It was pro
posed should bo lighted by electricity,
and tho proKsltlon wns made by three
brainy boys, then students in tho Now
York college, neither of tlicni 10 years
old nt the time. Ono of those boyB, tho
leading mill It In the scheme, wns ICd
ward lloffinever Hover, now principal
of drammnr School No. U; (mother holds
a prominent editorial position on the
most widely circulated newspaper in
New York, nnd tho third is, as ho has
been for years, an olUclnl in tho weigh
ers' department of tho Now York cus
tom houso. The thrco lnds wero enthu
slnstlo students of electricity nnd
conducted most of their experiments
together. Ono day Doycr suggested to
his fellows the iiiagnlilcent idea of de
vising a practicable plan for economically
lighting New York by electricity. Tho
Incandescent light was not yet dreamed
of, but thoy knew that tho decomposition
of carbon by the electric current would
produce an Intense light such as every
body knows now as tho "aro light."
Thoy recognized boforo them the prob
lems how to provide tho current eco
nomically and how to distribute tho
light ellectively, and on those they
worked with purposeful patience for a
couplo of years. At length their scliemo
was perfected. Tho power they pro
posed to employ wns the slow but certain
nnd tremendous ono of the rising und
falling of the tido. They planned to
hnvo lour enormous floats geared for tho
generating of that power, one stationed
on the "Poor IIouso Flats," nt tho head
of Avenuo D; n bccoihI nt Corlenr's
Hook j n third at tho foot of Canal street
In tho North river; nnd tho fourth nt tho
foot of West Twenty-third street. Dy
ingenious appliances thoy arranged for
tho conservation of energy during tho
periods of slack tides and for regulating
the operations of tho machinery to uni
formity nt all times. Then, for tho
utilization of tho light, they proposed to
erect four towers, each 250 or 300 feet
high, constructed of skeleton iron work
liko tho tower now standing nt llallett's
Point. Ono was to bo placed in Tomp
kins square; n tecond, in or near Mad
ison square; n third, in St. John's park,
nnd the fourth comowhero near tho city
hall. Tlio (ingles of radiation of each
light wore carefully calculated, and tho
heights of tho several towers regulated
accordingly, so as to give the widest pos
sible diffusion to tho lights, tho practical
effectiveness of which was to bo still
further enhanced by n system of super
this plan was a bold one, and tho boys
had worked It out, In all its details, with
tho thoughtful care of ablo engineers,
nud so good was it that Ita principal fea
tures are now pmclicnlly employed in
the lighting of an English city. The in
auguration of tho plant would liavo been
expensive, each tower, it waa computed,
costing about $180,000, but tho projectors
demonstrated that tho suliscqueut cost of
ojKjrntlon would not exceed $50,000 per
annum for tho entire service.
Tlio proposition, accompanied by an
admirable set of Illustrative drawings,
ample explanatory matter nnd closely
dotulled calculation of cost, wns pre
sented to the board of aldermen in 1850.
Tlio livery stable keepers, gin sellers und
ward heelers In that august body re
ceived the communication with shouts
of laughter. Tho idea of lighting n city
by electricity bccmcd Intensely funny to
them. "! Wnta electricity onyhow'r"
asked ono. "Damflno," replied another.
Thoy' brayed nt sclcnco, nnd laid tho
communication on tho tablo. Doubtless
there wero (laws in the plan; it would bo
strango if there wero not, coming as it
did from three boys; but those boys
wero far ahead, In scientific knowledge
of the fellows who sat down uixin them,
ana oven Had tliey ouereu iiotlilng moro
than tho germ of such nnplcndid idea,
that germ was worthy of much moro re
spectful consideration than it received.
'Iho fact deserves to go into history that
municipal lighting was first proposed for
the city of Now York, and with it tho
other fact thnt it was proposed by repre
sentative American boys, whose beiug
ahead of their fellow citizens was not co
very 6trango after all, since they wero
ahead of nil the rest of the world.
