BILL ARP'S LETTER.
TALKS AliOl T Til E IJATTL.K OF
Just seventy-eight years ago today,
there was fought a memorable battle
the most extraordinary, perhaps,
that is recorded in the annals of all
history. It was not a very great
battle, for there were only 18,000 men
engaged. It did not last but forty
minutes and yet its results were
wonderful, and their influence is felt
to this day, and will continue to be
lelf as long as this government ex
ists. If that battle had been fought
in old England or New England, or
in any other nothern State of this
Union, it would have been celebrated
in story and in song by orators and
poets, and been a landmark in history
a beacon light of courage and pa
triotism and generalship as bright
and as enduring as Hohenlinden or
Thermopylae or Bunker's Hill.
But it was fought at New Orlearns,
away down south in Dixie, by south
ern men who were under the ban of
tolerating and defending slavery
the ban of being barbarians. The
federalists of New England had op
posed the war with England, and they
gave enly a reluctant praise to Jack
son for his victory for they feared
that it would make him popular with
the masses who were fast settling up
the western States. And it did. The
victory was so amazing, so unexpec
ted 6,000 southern men, armed with
old-iashion titles and inexperienced
in modern warefare, pitted against
12,000 English troops, the flower of
Wellington's army, that had just a
few months before conquered Napo
leon and retired him from Paris to
Elba ; and yet these rough, untrained
soldiers did, in forty minutes, kill 2,
600 of the enemy and put the rest to
flight, and est only eight killed and
thirteen wounded of their side. Where
does history record such a victory?
There is no fooling about that busi
ness. These riflemen hadent hunted
bear and wolves and catamounts and
shot squirrels' eyes out all their lives
for nothing. Their fathers had fought
old England in the revolutionary war,
and their sons had no love for the
Britishers. Washington city, the capi tal
of the Union, was then in posses
sion of the British, but these south
ern patriots echoed Jackson's oath
when he swore by the eternal they
should not take New Orleans. He
had already driven them from Pensa
cola and Mobile, and had scattered
the Indians from hill to hollow and
blown up a fort with 300 runaway
negroes in it negroes that the Brit
ish were not only protecting, but
were inciting to a merciless warfare
upon the families of the absent sol
Wonderful man that Jackson, for
he had to fight foes witnout and foes
within. There was no telegraph to
bring him orders from Washington,
and when the mail bi ought them in
the old-fashioned stage he had al
ready done what he forbade or what
they commanded. It made but little
difference to him. He considered
his commission as major general in
command of the southern division, as
a "carte blanche"' to do just as he
pleased lor the public good and he
did it. He was king and autocrat.
General Winfield Scott reported him
as a mutineer for not obeying orders,
and he denounced Scott as a carrion
fed buzzard, and then . challenged
him. He would fight every body in
defense of his own honor or that of a
woman. He never allowed any repu
table woman to be maligned in his
presence, not e en by a hint or a
whisper. He broke up his cabinet
because Mrs. John. C. Calhoun and
Mrs. Berrien refused to associate
with Mrs. Eaton. He was always
slow to believe charges againt a wo
man. Jackson was the first nullifier,
lor he absolutely refused to execute
the mandates of the supreme court
unless they coincided with his views.
When the State of Georgia refused
to recognized the claims of the Indians
within her borders and was in open
conflict with the federal government,
Jackson withdrew the troops - and
swore by the eternal that the red
handed, blood-licking Indians should
have no state within a state. He had
been fighting Indians for years, and
knew their treachery and their bru
tality. But he was a great, big
hearted, noble man a diamond in
the rough. He raced, he bet, he
gambled he swore and he fought
duels, but he was always for the op
pressed and the helpless, and always
the protector and the defender of
woman. Even if her husband was
the oppressor, he sought a quarrel
with him about it. and generally got
satisfaction in some way. What a
will he had, and what a will power
over men even such men as Benton
and Cass and Blair and Chief Justice
Taney. He was the first president
who said turn the rascals out and he
turned them. From 17S9 to 1829
there had been but seventy-four re
movals from office, but Jackson
turned out 2,000 the first year of his
presidential service. I Ie determined
to break up the United States bank,
because he said it was being used for
plunder and political purposes, and
so he ordered McLean, the secretary
of the treasury, to remove the de
posits. McLean declined. So he
removed McLean and appointed
Duane. At the last moment, Duane
declined because it was illegal. He
removed him and appointed Roger
B. Taney, and he removed them, and
ali the-people said amen. He de
clared afterwards that, if Taney had
failed him, he would have removed
the doposits himself. He was de
termined as Cromwell, when he once
made up his mind. II' and Sam
Houston and Davy Crockett had
lought together and bunked together,
and a hundred times imperiled their
lives in fighting Indians and Span
iards and the British, and they were
all of the same stripe and type, and
had a measure of contempt for courts
and laws and for the aristocracy of
wealth. He put New Orleans under
martial law, and the judge fined him
$5,000. He put the judge in jail and
kept on his course as though nothing
had happened. When Florida be
longed to Spain, and was occupied
by lawless people from different
countries, and disorder was universal
and hideous. Jackson wrote to
President Monroe lor leave to go
down there and regulate the concern.
He dident get a reply, and concluded
it ought to be one anyhow, notwith
standing that Spain owned the coun
try, and so he organized a little army
2,500 southern men, and marched
there and turned the Spanish rascals
out of their own offices in San Agus
tine and St. Marks, and arrested
every outlaw and killed every hostile
Indian he could find and hung some
Englishmen because they couldn't
give a good account of what they
were doing and, within a year,
Spain got tired of demanding satis
faction for his outrageous invasion
and sold the State to the United
But this is enough of Jackson. He
lived long and lived much. His
whole life was marked by truthfulness,
integrity and courage, No wonder
that the good people of New Orleans
celebrate this day, and thus hand
down from generation to generation
the memory of one of the most re
markable victories ever acchieved. I
love to read about it and contemplate
it, for it was all the heroism of south
ern people people whose sons
fought at Shiloh and Corinth and
Vicksburg. And it is a comfort to
know that although Jackson left no
children, yet the son of his adopted
son served in the confederate army, in
which he was a colonel.
Now let the boys read up Jackson
and ponder him, and avoid his errors
and imitate his virtues. It will per
haps surprise them to find that this
great battle w; s fought just two weeks
after peace had been made at Ghent,
a city in Belgium, but there was no
telegraph or submarine cable then
to bring news. If there had been,
then 2.600 lives would have been
saved, and, perhaps, Jackson would
have died without becoming famous.
It will bring a glow to their southern
patriotism to know that the men who
fought under Jackson were the fath
ers and grandfathers of the same men
who, only 700,000 strong, all told,
did lor four long years fight against
3,000,000 of their foes in the late un

He was abont thirty-six years old,

good-looking, wore a brown check
ulster derby hat, and spoke with a
German accent as he took up a pen,
and, in a big round hand, registered
aMhe Victoria about 6 o'clock last
evening as "Count Arco, Washing

night. Am going to the Patriarch's
Ball," said the stranger to the clerk
as he exhibited an invitation purport

continued the visitor. "If I like them
I may stay some time
with you. I doso love New York.

eh ?" and he jabbed his umbrella :

"Certainly. Certainly. Glad to ac

Hoyt. "Rooms suit you ? Ah,
there you are, Count," and Mr. Hoyt
seized the $50 from the hands of his
clerk and placed the bills . in, the

into the elevator and was sent up to
a luxuriously furnished suite. A

ask if anything was desired. The
rooms were empty. Perhaps after
an hour Boniface Hoyt became sus

An icicle weighing over a ton fell
upon two Philadelphia photographers
on the ledge heading to the Cave of
Winds last week. They were crushed
and hurled 100 feet down the bank
to the ice below.
The Philadelphians were crossing
the slippery place on the edge when
I lowland lost his rubber down in a
hole in the ice. He stopped, and
Warner said : "I will get it, Harry,"
and he stepped down into the hole
when the icicle fell. A boy named
Farrell was within three feet of the
two men, and his eseape was mira
culous. Warner rose and with blood
streaming all all over his face, tried
to" crawl up the bank. Howland lay
where he lodged. Help was secured
and the injured men were hoisted to
the top of the bluff. Warner had
frightful gashes on his head and face
and bruises all over his body. How

An Awful Coincidence.
One of those horrible mistakes which
not infrequently upset a community
occurred here this week. For some time
Miss Margaret McNaniara, the elocution
ist, has been arranging for a spectacular
entertainment, its subject being the late
Lord Tennyson's "A Dream of Fair
Women." Thirty-five girb, her pupils,
were cast for the parts, which ran from
"Mother Goose" upward. It -was adver
tised that the story would bo told by a
dreamer between the tableaux, and that
the players would be clad in the clinging
draperies of Greece 8,000 years ago. The
whole thing was to be given for the
benefit of a worthy charity, and so
gained widespread indorsement. In an
evil hour the Lillie (Hay Gayety company
made an adjacent date at the Court
Square theater. This troup, too, was an
Adamless Eden concern, going so far .s
to carry a property woman. Now Lillie's
piece de resistance was "A Dream of
Fair "Women," and that line had long
been carried in flaming letters at the top
of all the printing. Naturally enough,
the populace got the two entertainments
mixed, and fully a score of young men
got into a hopeless quagmire by steering
fair Sunday school teachers they were
escorting into Lillie Clay's "dream."
Lillie's performance that night was
not as placid as usual, it is 6aid, it being
the first occasion on which it ever played
to more than three women at the same
time in its career. The snowy 6teed
galloped proudly into the mountains of
Tartary with Mazeppa upon his back,
while the corseted cream of Tartary
came down to the footlights with very
tall spears and stockings to match. The
McXamara and Euripides aggregation
gave a creditable entertainment, but
Lillie's display was much larger and
more varied. Spiingfield Cor. New

We have "real water" in the tank
shows and genuine meals in the banquet
scenes on the stage, and now we shall
have "real dirt" for rural scenes if some
playwright will but follow the sugges
tion of Miss Annie Lewis, the popular
soubrette. Said Miss Lewis to an inter
viewer: "Here's an idea I've just given Messrs.
Litt and Davis for a scene in a new play.
The villain has robbed a bank. Mounted
officers pursue him. Before he appears
the heroine's father, a farmer, plows a
furrow with a real plow across the en
tire width of the stage in real soil; ho is
plowing again when he is stopped by
villain. Villain asks for horses to escajK.
Farmer refuses. Villain, desperate,
strikes farmer with a wrench hanging to
plow. Farmer falls. Villain with knife
cuts traces. Mounts horse. Gallops off.
Officers rush on. see villain and start
after him. Scene changes again. Villain
gallops on, falls from horse and is cap
tured. Curtain. Great, isn't it"
It is truly great, but not bo wildly and
brilliantly original as the idea of a bud
ding young dramatist of The Scimctar's
acquaintance. lie has constructed a fire
ecene, in which real flames are to ravage
the interior of a mansion. It is of no
use to point out to him that when his
scene is produced realism may become
reality. lie says, with the easy insou
ciance of genius, that the burning of the
theater would only enhance the effect.
A Happy Accident.
What is known as the col J rolled proc
ess has worked a revolution in the manu
facture of steel, but, strange to s;y, its
invention was largely the result of an
accident. Its inventor, Bernard Lauth,
who is now living in retirement at How
ard, Pa., is a native of Germany, born in
1820. When he was about eleven years
old his parents came to this country, set
tling in Pittsburg, where he found em
ployment in a rolling mill. He started
at the lowest position in the mill and
worked his way through all the different
grades to that of boss roller.
With the money that ho had saved as
a boss roller, in company with seven
working companions, ho built a small
iron works at Zanesville, O., but in 1852
returned co Pittsburg and opened the
establishment which has since grown
into one of the greatest steel plants in
Mr. Lauth? one day in examining some
steel which it was supposed had been
spoiled in the rolling discovered, greatly
to his surprise, that it was of a superior
quality and finish. He began a quiet in
vestigation, and as a result perfected
what is known as the cold rolled process.
The invention yielded the inventor and
those who were interested with him mil
lions of dollars. New York Uerald.
