mil after inspecting the eight white
ranito buildings on the ample
rounds , instituted an inquiry among
old Philadolplnana to ascertain , if
wssiblo , the motives which prompted
.iirard in founding the institution ,
mid tin1 cause of Ins enmity toward

sources , ia us follows : Oirard was

Ho did not marry until many
rd of old bachelorhood had tinged
liis hair with gray , and but for a
strange meeting would doubtless have
remained a celibate. Being the
argest ship-owner in the world , his
business led him to nearly all parts
jf the globe , and his iiumo was fa-
niliar in every merchant port. On a
tublic occasion , when a largo body
norchants welcomed him homo after
i long crinso , the festivities of the
reception turned from speech-making
to ii grand ball , at which Oirard saw

had many singular features
about it not necessury to bo

It is said by all these with whom 1
conversed on the subject that Oirard's
young wife was exquisitely beautifu
and a lady of rare polish and cduca
tion. Hit treatment of her , instead
of being austere , aa Oath declares
was that of a proud lover , over anx
ions lo excite her favors by a b.o
stowal of elegant gifts , and a con
stant exhibition of loving tenderness
One year after his marriage , businesi
called Oirard to South America
where ho remained nearly eightee
months , and upon his return ho war
greeted aU'ectioiiately by his youn
wife , but her caresses weio poison t

evidences , readily apparent , tlm
she was about to become a mother. . '
could add nothing to the facts of tin
sad story by dwelling upon the aeon
that followed. Girard's rcproac , '
was succeeded by a frank confcsaioi
from his wife , who named their favor

am not prepared to say of what denomination

Girard hud some time previously
withdrawn from the Catholic church
for soiiio reason , and that both ho
and Ilia wife had united with some
"Girard could not forgive his wife ,
and she , being a keenly sensitive
woman , was ao conscience-stricken by
her great crime that two months after
the revelation she became insane and
was carried to a mad house. Hero
she languished for nearly two yoaia ,
when death delivered her of her mal
ady. Thu church of which she was a (
member took charge of her remciiiH
and gave them burial in u manner
commensurate with the great wealth
of her husband. A bill of the fu
neral expenses was afterwards pro-
Bontod to Oirard , but he peremptorily
refused payment , and the matter was
about to go into the courts. Dis
covering the attitude in which such n
legal contest would place him , Oirard
paid the bill under protest , and then ,
feeling as though the church had stab-
beU him twice , ho withdrew from ac
tive life , and , realizing $18,000,000
from his shipping interests , he con
cluded to spend § 8,000,000 Of that
eiim in founding u college , which he
intended should he a perpetual reproach
preach to all chinches and the follow
ers thereof. His reaped for society
and liis relations prevented him from
exposing the "ecret , which crushed
hiu life , and thus speculation mis
been left to write the history of his
domestic sorrows , fn the front cen
tre of the main building of Oirard

thropist's faithful hoiiflckcopcr , but no
portrait of his wife was ever sill liked

An afternoon p.vpor has this to say
"day of a great and good engineer ,
ames H Ends , commnly called Can-
nin E.uls , who has for n _ l > ng time
ecu an object of admiration \utli us.
"We have admired him foreUHMiio
lodesty and his mild vay of captur-
ng and convincing the Average . 'nn-
; rcasnian and for his skill in ought-
oring money out of the treasury ,

its trusty lieutenants , dom guard

lames ia a mild mannered man , . .ml
us outward appearance iiu ht be
aken for a deacon in good standing
if the Methodist church. Indeed , his
ace fairly beams with benevolence ,
i ml he is the very last man ( in p-
learaneeu - mean ) you woul
f having dishonest ilesiijtis n ihciU
reasury. And yet ilium's uinUi
stands the , irt better , peih.is | than
iiny man this country ever pirnlm-ed
ilames has varied hia tactics .ioimthii
hia session. In other wotdi he IMS'I
brought his engineering skill to bi.u
on the atumacha of congressmen an
evidence of loitiarkablo shunt itness.
You can leach ix congreasimiu tlirinn h
"ns stomach when every other meiuiN
fails. Sam W.ml can toll what nm-
nncing power fla good dinner and
plenty of lare old wine have on a
congressman. The late lamented
George IVabody ( wo know from o\
.loricneu ) gained a world wide cele
brity for the magnificence of Ins
.Illinois , rather than ho did for
great wealth. On one occa
sion ho had the Duke of Wellington
'or a gueat , which waa worth
i million dollars to George , and made
lim as proud as a peacock for a year.
Hu. ing resolved to follow in the foot
steps of illustrious men like Sam Ward
mid George Peobody , Captain K.uls
gave one of the'most sumptuous din-
icra of the ae.ison at Welcker's , a few
ughU ngo. The wines wore abunil-
unt. Tire guests too , were a choice
but somewhat varied assortnient. Sen
ators and members of Congroas were
here. So were one , if not two , mem
bers of the Supreme Court , and one
iiember of the Cabinet. Sandwiched
) otween these were three of the moat
lotorious lobbyists known to Wash-
ugton Captain Eads proposes to
jerk our ships up out of the Pacific
Ocean , carry thorn on cradles over the
mountains of Tohimntcpcc , and , no
Accidents occurring on the way , drdp
them safe and sound into the Atlantic.
"Impracticable as wo believe the
scheme to be , there are a do/.en or
more congressmen who have ( or rather
atl'ect to have ) great faith in it. We
have had considerable cxpcnoiico with
ships , and do not belie.'e one of those
congressmen could bo induced to
cross the mountains of Tohuaiitepec
in the style .lames Eads pioposos.
And yet .lames Eads modestly [ im
poses that congress shall vote him
fifty millions of the people's nlonoy
just to make a beginning. It is en
tirely safe to a.iy that before James
had taken a single ship out of the
Pacific and dropped her in the Atliu
tje , ho would make the government
responsible for $200,000,000.
' The people of St. Louis under
stand James Eads' engineering thor
oughly. His bridge across the Mis
sissippi coat more than double hia
estimates. The government , too , has
had a sad and very costly experience
of his engineering at the mouth of
the Mississippi. Ho began by con
trading to give us a certain widtl
and depth of water hy hia so-called
jetty system , and all for less thai !
$ ii,000,000. Many of our best on
gineor.s declare tlio whole thing i
