REIIARKS OF 5EX1T0R TIPTON,
Before Mass Convention of Soldiers and
bailors in AVaslilujjton City.
SclJicrs end Sailors :
As I am here, without any previous
notice or preparation, I must be allowed
lo act upon the principle, that
. " In t!te countlsss chTmbsrs of tLa briin
Our thoughts are linked bj raanj a hidden chain
Awako but one, and Lo I what myriad rise ;
Each clamps its imago as the other flies."
By this principle of association, appear
ing on this platform to-niht, as I do,
I am reminded that I stood here before a
large and intelligent audience on the 22d
of Feb., 1S51, and took part in eelebrat
ing the Anniversary of the birth day of
Washington, 'the father of his country.'1
After the lapse of seventeen years, with
a lively remembrance of your recent toils
and triumphs, it may be a matter of
curiosity, at least, to recall the words $
uttered on that occasion in relation to
the American Union, to see how far
you endorse. them to-night, and to real
ize how far the prophesy has been ful
filled by your immortal valor.
I then said : "In this connection it is
pleasant to remember the action of the
distinguished men relative to the Union
of the States, who, acting on Washing
ton's admonition, 'Frowned indignantly
on the first dawning of dissolution.'
"In 1832 a State unfurled the flag of
rebellion ; beat to arms her soldiery, and
bade defiance to the laws of the Union.
The nation looked on with intense interest,
and freedom trembled for the result.
The executive Proclamation smote upon
the ear of disaffection in the astounding
declaration: "Disunion by armed force
is treason." It lifted the pall from every
battle ground of the Revolution, summond
before the State the shades of her revo
lutionary martyrs ; pointed to her position
in the sisterhood cf Rput!i:3; r r; -rev:!:-':
nr -fa ti. j ten !: r 1 tr.T'n T3 cf a sen. ;
" 1 . 4 i - - J ' - - - x' l-
son : "The laws . of the United Slates
must be executed." With a decision that
knew iio wavering, hi3 position was
taken, and the success was as brilliant
as the Victory of' Orleans, (cheers)
Years rolled away, and again the demon
of disunion reared its bloody head for
the work of destruction. To it there
was nothing attractive in the temple of
liberty nothing desirable in the monu
ments of our national glory nothing of
eloquence in prose or of poetry in verse,
where Union was th9 theme to the orator
or bard. Again the howlcarne for action,
and again the eyes of the nation were
turned to the chair of state. A venera
ble aged man uncovered his head in pres
ence of all the people, and uttered the
sentiments of a loyal heart: "whatever
danger may threaten it, I shall' stand by
the Union, and maintain it in its integrity
to the full extent of the obligations im
posed, and the power confered upon me
by the constitution."
The sentiment was the harbinger of
hope to every patriot heart, and the
knell of doom to the Catilmes of secession.
It was worthy of the glorious old hero
who never lost a battle, and will go down
to posterity, side by side, with that other
immortal message. "Gen. Taylor never
surrenders." (cheers.) Scarcely had the
acclamation to stand by the Union, fallen
from his lips, when the laurals of victory
withered from his brow, the shouts of
the multitude died upon his ear, while
from eternities portals came back that
memorable farewell, "I have done my
duty." Catching the descending man
tle cf his devotion, and adopting the
motto of his heart, over his tomb was
received the insignia of command, by
his constitutional sucessor, and again the
nation reposed in peace. Notwithstand
ing the discouragement of the last few
years, I cannot doubt but our country
shall endure. If any of you who hear
rce, shall be permitted, through the kind
ness of providence, to come up here on
the 22d of Feb 1900, you shall find here
a devoted people, ready to build around
the sepulchre of Washington a rampart
cf hearts. You shall find a President
of the Union, adopting the language of
a recent incumbent, "Our liberties, re
ligious and civil, have been maintained,
the fountains of knowledge kept open,
means of happiness widely spread, and
generally 7 enjoyed, greater than have
fallen to the lot of any other nation.
Then you shall find a Secretary of the
Treasury ready, in the hour, of discord,
to adopt the language of a ate finan
ancial cflicer, Mr. Corwin t "Let us
here in this temple, consecrated to the
union, and on these altars, in the presence
of that image of the "Father of his coun
try," that looks down upen U3, swear to
preserve honorable peace with all the
world, and eternal brotherhood with each
other." (Cheers) Looking to the Senate
of the Uoion, you shall behold the langU'
age of Henry Clay, blazoned on the proud
banner of Kentucky : "Here I am within
the union, and here I mean to stand and
die: within it to protect myselft-and to
defy all power upon earth to expel me,
or drive me from the position in which I
am placed.5' (cheers)
In command of your country's conqu
ering legions, shall be fouud a general;
who, although he may never have bapti
zed his coqntrys plains with his hearts
young blood, or plucked laurals amid the
sprays of Niagra, or shouted victory from
the walls of a Vera Cruz,, will yet lend
the full shrill notes of his bugle blasts to
the words of General Scott. "The plat

and, on which I am desirous to live, or
ready to die, is that of the country, the
whole country, and nothing but the coun
Then in the 2S0th year of her age,
you shall behold Massachusetts, with the

the echo of your victorou3 shouts is float

By the presence also of our venerable,
battle scared friend from Tennessee( Col
Stokes) I remember with what enthu
siasm my constituents received his first
utterence in the house of Representatives,
when called upon to relax the iron clad
oath for the convenience of a senator elect
from Tennessee, he declared, "Rather
than repeal the test oath, I would freeze
in my heat." (cheers)
But I must cot allow the pleasant as
sociations of the hour to hurry me away
from my intention of brevity, while so
many more await to address you. I
cannot join in aoy forebodings of evil
on account of the impediment which seems
to meet us in our onward march this
evening. For I recollect when a farmer
boy, if in swinging a scythe I ctroe upon a
nest of hornets and was not able to mow
over them, I could at least cut around
them, nnd after the frost of the fall, fire
the grass and smoke them out.
So let me advise you, if unable to
cut through at present, pass aiound, and
after the frost of October, you can smoke
them out in November, (applause)
We have heard a good "anecdote of
the father of the Baecher family, which
we do not find in his biography.
Some year3 since, he was going home
one night with a volume of an ency
clopaedia under his arm, when he saw a
small animal standing in his path. The
doctor knew that it was a skunk, but
very impudently burled the book at him.
The skunk, as raighthave been expected,
opened his battery with a return fire
so well directed, that the divme was
glad to retreat. When lie arrived at
home, his friends could scarcely come
near him, and his clothes were so infect
ed that he was compelled to bury them.
Some time after this, some one pub
lished a pamphlet, speaking very abusive
ely cf the worthy doctor, who was ask
ed "Why don't you publish a book, and
put him down at once ?'
His reply was prompt and to the point :
'Sir, I have learned better. Some
years ago, I issued a whole quarto volume
against a skunk, and I got the worst of
it. I never mean to repeat the exper
iment.' "O, mother ! mother !" " What my son!"
"Mayn't I have the big Bible up in my
room to-day ?" "Yes, my child, and wel
come, you do cot know what pleasure
it gives me to see your thoughts turned
that way. Bat what sticks are those in
your hand?" "Triggers!" "Triggers!
For what, my child ?" "Why, taip-triggers-
Here's the standard, see; that
is the flipper, and that one with the fat
meal on the end is the ' long trigger.
There's a rotten mouse keeps comin' in
my room and insulting ov me, and I want
to set the big Bible and try and knock
his chunk out of him !"
Mr. PMIIsUae Drone's Wooln
I beg to lay befoor the readers of yoor
valuable paiper a hart-rending eppyode
of the halscon dais of my yoothful inno
ssence. When I was a blushing boy of
sum 2S summers, and at that aige peku
liarly sensitive to the arrors cf Kupid,
Ye gods ! my ink turn3 pail when I think
of the objict cf my jeuvenile afTeck
shuns. Do not shudder when I tell yu that I
fell in luv with a seckund-hand article, a
femail dressed in black, the habillyments
of the graiv; in short, a widder.
The idul of my hart was ritch, but do
not suppose for a singul moment that I
associated ray dieeras of bliss with luv
of filthy luker; not wonce !
My angul's naim was Celestia Byte ;
and wo is me, I went for Byte, and kum
backbitten. Wun nite, while listening
to her sole-sorrin stranes upon a five
shilling akkordeon, I was about to pore
my tail of luv at her feet, when she sed:
" Philly" (she. awlais kalled me
Philly), "Philly, deer, wilst not purchi3
me sum music2"
"Lite of my hart," sed I, "thy behests
shall be obeyed."
"Kali me pet caims," said the tender
harted earyfirn. aad immegiately swoon
ed with dehte.
That nite as I took my departure from
the bootiful Celestia's I sed to myself,
"Undoubtedly she luvs me. O, heavenly
thought ! Ken I be awaik ?" which was
not very likely, seeing as I had my pock
et pickt by an audashus fellow who had
taiken advantiage of my abstraction..
When I neckst addressed Celestia,
'twas with a luv letter, which I indited
after great efforts, with the aid of my
stoopendus jenius and an old song bock.
The missive red a3 folloes, to wit;
"Deerest Celestia: Fare wun of
the Golden Locks, ever of thee I'm fon
dly dreeming. Thy brite smile haunts
me still. Adorable wun, thou art the
only women I ever luved. Beluved Girl
thou art so cere and yet so far. Reck
me to sleep Beautiful dreemer. I'd offer
thee this hand of myne. Wilt acksept,
from yoor troo luv, Piiin,y Dsoxe."
Thn I Si?'.!--:;!, end sent to my hart's
''D-z-a P. D. Spcrtiv Ley, evety.
thing is selubrius. O, kum, kum ! Am
I or am I not. Exkuse my inkoherency.
The thought will drive me mad.
Upon reeding of which I immegiately
fainted and swoonea in my own foot
'Twas evening whea I again started
forth to visit the dommysil of the salubri
us widdoe and the stars seemed to shine
in mello lite upon my kare-worn linny-
ments as if tney new that l was sun to
jine my fait with wun who wus too an
gelick for a lengthened residence upon
this sinful sfere: and while my hart
beet with overpowering emo.huns, I ask
ed myself in murmuring acksenls if I
wu3 wurthy of this earthly sherrybim,
and arriving at her dore at the instant I
asked this question, I was -ushered in be
fore I had time to anser it.
When I stood in the presens of the
happi gurl, she eed ;
"Philly, deer, do I wunct again behold
thy franc and open kountenance ? "
40 Celeitia ! prey do not gaze upon
me in that refulgent stile ; do not my
hart will burst!" said I. "And now tell
me when thou wilt be my bryde And
I kneeled before her, mutch to the da
mage of my best pants.
"Thy Bryde?" said Celestia, disdain
fully. "Ay sweto wun !" sed I, throeing my
arm3 around her lovingly. Whea will
we be married ?"
But imagine my surprise when Celestia
hit me akrost the hed with a fire-shuvel,
and then asked me what I ment.
"Didn't you promise to marri me?"
"Marri you !" she sed. "Do yoo sup
pose that the anshant family of Byte
wood disgrais thar naira by affilyating
with a Philistin ?" "
"But,"sed I, "didn't I rite you a letter
offering my hand, and didn't you rite me
a letter acks"pting it ?"
She burst out laffiin, and sed :
"Yoo big fool ! I thought it wu3 a list
of the music you was going to send me ;"
and she swept from the room skornfully.
I left her kursed threshold, cever
more to return.
The Fenians are preparing at. St.

Now that the difierect styles of spring
fashion are known, it is well to consider
all particular?, and to state what advant
age may be drawn form one costume or
another, and in which way this cr tha
ancient style can be improved upon. Lace,
especially, creates mere excitement than
anything else. It is used as skirt, fcr
dresses, and as trimming, and there will
be many toiIet3 made of that material
for watering places. I have heard the
remark that . these toilets must be pretty
expensive, and wish to observe, there
fore, that it is cot absolutely necessary
to iise Chanilly lace, and that any pretty
fancy lace will be perfectly admissable,
and will not be more expensive than eth
er toilets. You meet with tunics and
polonaises made entirely of Hack lace,
worn in a very original manner on dress
es cf Hue, maize, corn-colored or Met-ternich-green
silk. The tunic may be
allowed to hang down in its full length,
or looped up at the d'des by rosettes of
ribbon, corresponding with the shade cf
the skirt. The tunic ends in a ccrselet
on the waist, forming a point oa the back,
and cut square ia front. If intended for
an evening toilet, the waist is cut very
low bordered by a row of small plaits.
As a walking dress, this toilet will look
very handsome with a mqntjlla bonnet,
made all of lace, crossing over the chest.
This style reminds us of the Andalusioa
costumes, and the artistic richness of the
Renaissance. This'is what can be made
of a lace tunis. Let us see cow what
may be made of a Chantilly cr any other
discriptica of a lace shawl. Point lace i3
not worn any more this year. Jt would
impart to the toilet a vulgar appearance,
not corresponding with the generally ad
opted fancy costumes. Still, as people

and some knots of ribbon. There is an
other way of wearing dresse3 with lace
flounces. A simple oblonsr fichu, cut
round below, in front and behind in the
material. This fichu, which goes about
centimetres below the belt, is bordered
by a broad lace flounce, and is ia size
equal to aa ordinare cloak. The same
lace is formed in a flounce, fastenad by
roias or two nngers in witatn, ana goes
all around the dress ia the .hape of a
tunic. A round belt fastens it to the waist,
and gives the garment the appearance
of a tight-fitting cassock, half lace and
half material. " I have seen inis sryle cu
light lilac silk, looking very rich and ex
ceedingly graceful ; the very long skirt
was altogether without trimmings. A
toilet of gray taffeta deserves likewise to
be metioned. It had nothing but satin
folds for arnament, describing in front a
real square aporn, reaching down to
within fifteen centimeters from the bon
net of the skirt. The mantelet was bor
dered with the same folds, cut round be
hind, went a little below the waist, and
crossed in tront wun tne square naps
falling down over the skirt; the uper
part was ornamented by a large knot
behind, its form putting you somewhat
in mind of a hood. I may as well add
that this manteht might be repbeed by

and bordered all round by a much-platt

The Irish Revullic, cf this week,
speaking of the Banks' bill for the pro
tection of American citizens ia foreign
countries, passed on the 30th ult , says;
What Democracy has failed to do in
fifty Vearst Republicans has done in seven.
Let our people stand by the men who are
true to liberty. Let them respond to
this action of this Republican Congress,
and cast their ballots for the next Rep
ublican candidate for the Presidency.
It matters not whether he may be Grant,
Greeley, Wade, Colfax, &c, they are
all men pledged to the growing principles
of Replbljcan liberty. On the-other
hand, let them support Francis Adams.

English House of Belmont, who must be
the candidate of the Democracy let
them do this, but Jet them cease their

Grant was serenaded ia Washington
on the 22d ult. After the band played
"Hail to ihe Chief" calls were made for
Grant, whea he appeared at the door cf
his residence, and wa3 greeted with pro
longed cheers. Representative Bcutwen
of Massachusetts, who was standing at
his side, addressed him ia terms expres
sive of gfcitificatioa at his nornimtion ty
the Chicago Convention. Grant said:
Gentleman, being entirely unaccustomed
to public speaking,and without the desire
to cultivate that power, (Laughter) it is
impossible for me to find appropriata
language, to thank you for this demon

ycu. I will endeavor to discharge its
duty with fidelity and honesty cf purpose
and of rectitude in the prefcrmar.ee cf

Three cheers were then given for

then entered the house and congratulated
The procession thea moved ta tha resi

been made for him he appeared at the
door of hi3 residence ia company with
Representative Kirk, of Maine, who ia
a few remarks introduced Colfax.
The latter said: Friends, thank you
with all the emotions of my heart fcr
this flattering manifestation of your con
fidence and regard, and congratulate ycu
on the auspicious opening of the eventful
campaign oa which we are entering. In
the Chicago Convention, representing the
entire continental area of the Republic,
