: "Yesterday, being the first an-river-Kir

Btateaof America, waa celebrated in
Philadelphia with detnonetrations of
' , joy and festivity. Abont noon all the
armed ahipa and galleys in the river
vera drawn np before the city, dressed
in tbe gayest manner, with the color
of the United Btatee and streamers die
played. At 1 o'clock, tie yarda being
Jroperly manned, they began tbe cele
ration Of the day by a diacbarge of 18
cannon from each of tbe ships and one
from eacb of the 18 galleya in honor of

. "In the afternoon an elegant dinner

formancca anited to tbe occasion, while
coriw of British deserters, taken' in
tbe service by tbe state of Georgia, be
ing drawn np before the door, filled np
the interval wltbfem de Jole." (What
a aardonlc Joke!) "After dinner a num
ber of toasts were drnnk, all breathing
' independence and a generon love of
liberty and commemorating tbe mem
orle of tbonfl brave and worthy patriota
who gallatitiy exposed their Uvea and
fell gloriously in defense of freedom and
, the rigbteooa cause cf their country,,
"Each toast wa followed by a die
cbargeof artillery and email arma and
a aoitable piece of nmale by the Hessian
, band. ,
"The gloriooa Fourth of Jnly waa r
iterated three times, accompanied with
triple diacbarge of cannon and email
arm and lond boms that resounded
from etraet to atreet throughout tbe
city. Toward evening several troop of
Jbc, a corpa of artillery and a brigade
id North Carolina force, which waa in
town on it way to join tbe grand
army, were drawn np In Second atreet

Independence day draws near once
more, and a it approaches we are led
to recall some of the noble "deed and
momenton event connected with tbe
Fourth of July in history. It ia an in
teresting date to remember.
first, of coarse, is tbe Fourth of
July, 1770. t It was on Thursday and
very bot, ' "sultry and oppressive,"
wrote one of the immortal signer in
bis journal. In tbe ball of tbe state
house at Philadelphia 00 men were as
sembled, end discussion was heated. A'
momentous question waa np "Resolv
ed, That these 18 colonies are and of
right ongbt to be free and independent
state," , Quite a number were opposed
to it aa 0 matter of policy.
John Hancock, who sat at the bead
of tbe table, handsome and debonair,
presided with affable grace, There were
tbe five framera long. Tom Jefferson,
tbe venerable Franklin, sturdy John
Adams, honest Boger Sherman and R.
B, Livingston of New York. Everybody
looked to these, for they were the recog
ailed leaders cf that congress. .
Hotter and hotter it grew ont of
doors, and hotter it was in Independ
ence ball. It was o'clock before they
voted. Tbe resolution bad passed.
America wax free! Hurrah, hurrah I
Ring tbe bell and fir tbe gun I
Lett go back a hundred years to
1070 and go down to Jamestown, in
Virginia. Old Sir William Berkeley,
the governor, lived there, and he was a
notable tyrant. Be waa engaged in
selling gunpowder and shot to tbe In
diana and , receiving fur in return,
which waa against tbe law. So, wben
an Indian war broke ont, be let them
massacre tbe settlers rather than com
mission any one to go to fight them.
It made a great atir all over tbe colony,
and finally a brave young man declared'
that if there was any mure trouble
from tbe eavagee be would lead the col
onists against them without any com
mission. ' 8
Within a few daya tbe Indian made
a bloody inroad upon l?ia own planta-
tion, and, true to hi promise, Na-'
tbaniel Bacon (that waa tbe yonng
planter's name) led 000 well armed aet
tiers and inflicted a terrible defeat upon
the red men. For this Governor Berke
ley declared bim and bla followers

right on bla 'side, and be did not mean j

and hia COO suldiura marched to James-1
town, determined to make the tyran
nical Berkeley give bim a commission.
They arrived before the governor's
bouse, and the old man came out and
acted and talked like a madman. Bot
Bacon waa cool and firm, and at laat
the fiery old royaliat aigned a document
making Bacon general of all the Vir
ginia forces to fight tbe Indiana. It waa
late in tbe afternoon, Jnly 4, 1070, juat
a hundred years before the aigning of
tbe Declaration., v
A rode fort built of earth and logs
stood in tbe heart of tbe wilderness of
western Pennsylvania. Inside the fort
were abont 160 provincial soldiera com
manded by a young Virginia major.
Outside were 1,000 French and Indians
led by a French marquis. For ten hours,
through a sultry, rainy Jnly night, the
Americana bad been besieged there by
the enemy. Only one of their number
bad been killed, but they bad no water
and but little food. Tbe French com
mander waa impatient, but the valor of
hia foea had taught him discretion. Aa
the aun rose through tbe mist and
shone upon the wild landscape the
marquia aent forward a flag of truce
and proposed an honorable capitulation.
Tbe young major from Virginia accept
ed tbe proposal, and on Jnly 4, 1784,
George Washington and hia little army
marched out of Fort Necessity with the
honors of war and departed through
tbe wooda for Virginia. Tbe first blood
sbed in tbe old French and Indian war
waa spilled on this occasion.
A band of explorer were proceeding
along a narrow trail through tbe prime
val forest. They were dreated in track
buee and padded doublet and bad on
steel corselets, long Ppaalah boots and
queer ktokiug steel rap. One of tbrui
