A Cnrleas Story af Hie Early Life.
Major Ben. Terley Toore, the well-known
Washington correspondent, has recently pub
lished a life of Gen. Bnrusida The edition de
lnxe, of which three hundred copies were
printed for the general's personal friends, is a
very handsome specimen of bookcraft The
work itself is a just tribute to tbe dead soldier
and aUtseman, and presents his private char-
actsr tn a very trataniA i.w
The general was a native of Indiana, and
was entered as a cad;t at West Point from
that state, no was gradua'od iu the ciaas of

but when the question was put to bur
whether she would take hint fur her hus

obtained from tho fame lady a promine to

on their way to church exhibited a revolver,

promptly replied whether from love or fear

V. hen a lie is ouce fahb ued upon the puUio
mind it clings like the arms of Victor Hugo's
eca monster. Glaucing on v--ttrday through
a late number of The Contiucut, a weekly pub
licatiou of the magazine on'.,-r, conducted by
Judge Tourgoo, my atteutici was arrested by
an illustrated article ou tho early history of
narrodsburg, Ky., written by Henry Clove-
land Wood. The fact that a Mr. and Mrs.
Kobardi) lived in that place near tho closo of
the last century is mentioned ; also, that they
separated owing to the husband's ill-treatment
of his wife; that a divorce was obtained, and
that the freed woman iutormarriod with "one
Andrew Jackson." The writer sustains the as
sertion made by George Alfred Towiwend, in
Lis lecture upon the presidents entitled,
"Thomas, the Doubter," that the marriage was
a "Boman sort of Sabine wedding." 'Jack
son," be says, "011 learning the un
happy life she (Mrs. It) was lead
ing on her second return to Kentucky,
coolly carried her off behind him on bis horse,
took her to Virginia, placed her with some
friends, procured a divorce for hor, and then
married her." It would be diflicult to force
more falsehood into the same space with a
hydraulic uaussge-stuffer. The records of
the courts of Morcer county, at Harrodsburg,
which Wood protends to have examined, show
that Ilobards obtained the divorce under au
thority granted by the legiilature of Virginia
to the court to ti y the cause. Jackson uevui
visited Mrs. Itol ar.ls i:i Kentucky, and had
only met her at her mother's (with whom be
boarded) near Nashville, where she bad lied to
escape her husband's brutality. They were
married in Natchez, when it wa generally un
derstood and believed that tbe Virginia legis
lature iia-1 granted the divorce. Whon it was
learned that thit wa-t a mistako, and that the
divorce had l-emi snbtequonrly obrniued in
Kentucky, they were remaned. This has been
explained over and over au'ain for more than
half a century, yet the old scandal conii-im-s to

The Concord (N. H.) Monitor prints a pri
vate letter, writ en with a free hand by a citi
zen of that town, who is temporarily staying
iu Fremont, Ohio, in which tho writer says:
M went to the church where the. ex-preideut
attends, aud was fortunate iu seeing him at hia
devotions. Ho looked as if he was on good
terms with himself, and showed few indica
tions of ago. He is grayer than ho was four
years ago, but you and I are in the Fame boat ic
that respect Hie ox-president came iu with
wife and daughter, lie evidently diun 1 care
much about his dress. He had an old sionch
hat in his hand and around his nech a ban
danna was tied, but bis coat was the worst It
was several degrees too large in the back, and
fitted like an ox-yoke. It was probably the
hasty effort of some local tailor, lie walks like
a countryman, with a loose swiniring gait, and
his boots made his picture all the more bu
colic His bootH cover some space, and I no
ticed he hd a crack in on of them. Ho 'toes
out,' and is in every respect an out-and-out
Buckeye.' When he went out of church 1
followed him to observe more of his character
istics. He stopped and spoke a few words to a
couple of countrymen, whose apparel gave the
impression that they copied tho ex-ehief mag
istrate in the matter of clothes. He was affa
ble, and did considerable bowing. Evidently
his acquaintances do not take much stock in
the ugly rumors concerning his election. As I
was going out he even bade me good morning,
and said something about it being a blustering
day. I was pleased at his gracious remark,
and uiorely added, 'Yes, sir.' he has a magnifi
cent place, and his house sets back in a large
grove, and contains many acres, sixty or
eighty, I should 6ay. I was disappointed in
Rutherford R's annearance he would rjass in

IXovv a Yankee Skipper Celebrated
1st. Patrick's Day.
Now York Truth.
Once upon a time Captain It S. Osborn, now
the pacifically disposed editor of Tho Nautical
Gazette, commanded a Yankee ship that waa
anchored in Dublin bay on 8t Patrick's day in
the morning. From Dublin town was wafted
over tho water the martial strains and patriotic
shouts of the "thrue Oiriah lads a-shelebratin'
tho day. The captain must have tumbled out
of his bed In a sympathetic mood that morn
ing, for he rummaged tho signal locker until
he found a great big piece of green bunting
and then painted on it a most dazzling harp in
yellow ochre, after which he ran up bis colors
peak and felt much better.
It was only a little while afterward, and be
fore the yellow harp had dried in the breeze,
that a boat fell from the davits of a neighbor
ing British man-of-war and -steered for the
American. The stiff nud stArchy lieutenant in
her stem sheets was received on board with
all due courtesy, and after a brief interchange
of naval conventionalities said: "I must re
quest von to haul down the flag." "I want to
know, said the American commander. "Aye,
air, you a'veu't h'any crown h'on it, don't you
know?" "Oh, is that all; we ll fix that," was
the captain's highly satisfactory answer; and
the Britisher was ushered over the side with
all due courtesy.
The green flag came down, and the captain
artistically painted a little yellow crown above
the harp and hauled her up again. Pretty
soon the British man-of-war s boat was
manned again, and the lieutenant, more stiff
and starchv than ever, came over the side
once mora" "I thought 1 told you to pull
down that flag."
"Aye, air," said the lieutenant, getting red as
a turkey cock.
"Well, I'd like to oblige, but really, now, I
can't," said Captain Osliorn.
"Well, then, III haul it down for you," was the
irate reply. . .
Yubadam!" answered the captain, imparting
the name of a boantiinl village in the Golden
state to the Englishman, and adding, "If you
do vou'il got hurt"
"Well, why don't you have a crown oa
aeked the English tar.
"Xnere is oue; can't you see it! said
"The lieutenant bv screwing a single ey.
glass in his starboard light and battering down
the port one, mingdd to decry the royal em
blem. "Well but tb.it is such a little one com
pared with the harp." he aaid. - -- -
"Just about the proportions of my regard
for the crown and the htrp the way I feel this
morning," said the captain.. The lieatenaut
gave up in disgust
The next morning the Dublin pspers de
voted several 'sticks" each to tho Yankee skip
per, and everv boy Mick in Dublin that had
enough coin of tbe" realm left to buy a quait
of potheen, and charter a gunboat came off to
