will find the broken down merchant,
struggling to gain a living on a piece of
land, although uutil he came west he
never held a plow in his life and perhaps
scarcely ever drew a rein over a horse.
For a while all these struggle along and
live from hand to mouth. But reverses
came and they are about to'give up their
claim and seek some other means of mak

This is contrary, of course, to popular
opinion'in this country, as it is radically
opposed to the prevailing notion abroad.
The general assumption during tlie civil
war and since then was and, is that a
large proportion of the Union forces in
that struggle were men of foreign birth.
This opinion too, has been and is still
held on both sides of the Atlantic except
by those who have taken the trouble to
become acquainted with the precise
facis. In reality the ratio of this" class
to natives was small. Of the 2,000,000
men and more w hose names were in
scribed'on the rolls of the armies'of the
Federal Government in the war between
the states, ninety Ove out of every hun

men born ahroard, ills true, comprise
an element of our population important
in number as wen as in lmiuence arm
force, but its proportion of the aggregate
mass is and must continue to he sleauuy
lessening, for, as a class, the children
born here of foreign panintage are as
fully American in instincts and aspira

who landed from the Mayflower.- The
ancient and stale assertion w hich often

Without detracting in the smallest
