latter was elected. The President wrote
to Dick, invitincrbim to Washington to
act as his private secretary DiQk re
fused the offer haughtily, saying-that he
"wouldn't play second fiddle even to
the President of the United State"
A SWEARING GENERAL AND A PRAYING
General Taylor's first remarkable ser
vice in the war was in Stonewall iTack
son'tffamons campaign in the Valley
of Virginia." At Porte Republic the
Louisiana. Brigade carried the day
and responded with .cfi'eeis to Jackson s
command," The? batt&ytmust be tak
en r General Taylor was not a great
admirer of Jackson, whom Jiha. tier
scribed as a man given over to lemdi
sucking and prayers. On this occasion
riding on the flank of his column, be
tween it and the hostile line, he saw
Jackson beside him. Taylor did not
consider that this was the place for the
commander, jof the army, and ventured
to tell him so; but he paid no attention
to the remark. , "We reached a shallow
depression where the enemy could de
press his guns," says General Taylor,
". and bis fire, became close an' fatal.
Many 'aaeti f ellwand the whistling bf
shot and shell occasioned Jthuch ' duck-
ine of heads in1' the column. This an
noyed me no little, as it was but child's
play to the work immediately in hand.
Always an admirer of delightful Uncle
Toby, I had contracted the most villainous-''
habit of -his ' beloved afrmy in
Flanders; ( ' and forgetting Jaickson's
presence, ripped out, " What the hell
are you dodging for? If there; is any
more of it you will be halted under this
fire for an hourT The sharp tones of a
familiar voice produced the desired ef
fect, andthe men looked as though
they had swallowed ramrods ; but I
shall never forget the reproachful sur
prise expressed in. Jackspn's face. He
placed a hand bh ihV shoulder, and said
, in a gentle voice, 1 am afaid jrou are a
wicked fellow,' turned and rode back to
the pike." j
HIS SOCIAL Tim4fPlfe ABROAD
. The, , crqwning triumphs of . General
Taylor's sochil career .were won in Eng
land and on' the Continent of Europe
itiSome years ago. He first gained notp
' riety at the London clubs by his ad riii
rable skill as a whist player. He .was a
disciple of Hoylef and the older school
or players, and cared little tor the mod
ern niceties of the game. .His memory
was wondertui, and lie never forgot a
card., .The English club men. .who had
."J&itaetftheir science .fronl; 'Gray,
.-.Cavendish and Pole, were- astonished
at this old fashioned player, who, , beat
them in spite of their rules and formu
las. - So General Taylor's fame came ton

night and played together. Thus began
aCintimajcy which endured to ' th Jasr.
Wherever the Prince' weftt, whether to
Sandringham for a whiff of rustic air,
or to Scotland to stalk, the deer, or to
the races at Asrof.br to the University
boat race on the Thames, thither he
was certain to invite ( General , Taylor.
He introduced hiih at Windsor to the
Queen, and the Queen was so charmed
with his company that she prayed him
to stay fora;week at the Castle. When
the Prince went to India he invited
Gen. Taylor to be one of the party.
Hut the General preferred to stay in
London, and many a quiet rubber was
played at, the Marlborough House by
the Princess,;,jthe ,Dufee of Cambridge
and the American, while the Prince
was tiding in An elephafttho'wdalr
through the jungles or .Nepaul. In th
royal box at Ascot his figure was famil
iar to every jockey ri the ;cOujrse,
though his means never allowed him to
own race horses and rarely to bet. One

.Tnhn Till. station acrent on the Central
Railroad, at Gilford, telegraphed to the
mam omce, in tms cny, iwu uvy. ogu,
that a man should be immediately sent
to relieve him, as he intended to kill
himself. The message was treated as
Ski joke,., hut .withinanhonr . Bell shot,
himself, : after killing a young woman
whom he lovedV He, died of his wound
to-day. The tragedy was the outcome
of a religious revival in Gifford. The
Rev- John , Houghoworth, an Advent
evangelist.weht to that place six weeks
ago, began to hold daily meetings, and
soon bad the neighborhood in a state
of excitement He was 35 years Of age,
and eloquent Converts were numer
ous, and on Saturday last (the Advent
ist's Sabbath) he baptized fourteen per
sons by immersion. Immediately after
this ceremony he was seen by Bell slyly
handing a note to Eva Roberts, who had
been foremost in admiring attention to
the popular preacher. She was the
daughter of a leading member of the
church, and had, by her sweet singing
of Sankey and Bliss hymns, contributed
much towards the success of the revi
val. Bell was her accepted suitor, and
expected to-become her husband. Hence
he f eh f personal pnterest in the. jaete
the pYeScheflfahded td ; nereis 'jeal
ousy had already been aroused, and, on
finding this new indication of intimacy
between the pair, he resolved to watch
On the same afternoon the Rev. Mr.
Houghoworth drove away from Gifford.
He said that he had been absent so
long from his wife and little ones that
he really must visit them at his home
in Liscomb, thirty miles distant He
would return in a few days, however,
and resume his revival work with prob
ably renewed vigor. Soon afterward
Miss Roberts gave a letter to Bell to
Eost. It was addressed to some un
nown name in Liscomb, and the jeal
ous Bell suspected that it was really
for Houghoworth. He opened it and
read the details of a plan for a meeting
between the clergyman and the girl.
They were to make a brief trip as hus
band and wife, she pretending to visit
relatives and he telling his family that
he had returned to Gifford. Uell re-
aealed and mailed the letter, and let his
sweetheart go unhindered to Hougho
Miss Roberts came home in a train
on Mondav moraine:. Bell, who was on
duty in th station, helped her out of
the car and said that he wanted a talk
with her. Bv that time he had made
up his mind what to do. At daybreak
he had been seen cleaning a long un
used revolver and firins at a mark. He
had also sent, just before the arrival of
the train, the dispatch above spoken of.
The cm walked with him a snort dis
tance down the track,and then he put the
revolver to her heart and killed her in
stantlv. Then he shot himself,' fired two
more bullets into her body, lay down by
her side, took her in his arms, and wait
ed for death. His own wound, how
ever, did not kill until two days later.
Measure of a Man.
Gov. Vance, .has cause, just now, to
think of the Spanish maxim : "wive me
from mv friends." for somebody has
written a sketch of 'him, as a "humor
ist," for a Philadelphia pajier, which
does him. great, though unintentional,
injustice. This writer reports a num
ber of Vance's jokes, which is very
much as if he had caught butterflies5,
and rubbed oft the colors from their
wings, lried eiu iu smoke, and then
produced 'em to . show their original
vividness of tint ar.d liveliness of mo
Until tone, look -and gesture ; scene,
mci'dent, and suggestion, can ' Imj con
veyed, reports of hhinbrlike reports of
acting, must le inadequate, and the
narrator in this case has treated his
theme with very little art.
But the siecial injustice he does the
ex-Goyeruor is found in the following
statement, (italics thfrs)r
"This rich store of genuine humor is
the basis of Senator ; Vance's remarka
ble popularity at home and the founda
'Mgn ofMspoUtiortiin:v lt is this
that' made him thrice" Governor 'of f his
native State, on two occasions against
immense odds. In the very hottest
hour of the rebellion Vance was elected
to the gubernatorial chair by the North
Carolina Unionists against the regular
secession nommef, and, notwithstand
ing his "bold defiance of Jefferson Davis
throughout his term, he wag re-elected
by an increased majority just at the
close of the war."
That Gov. Vance has made good use
of his powers. as a wit and humorist is
trite? but the foundation of his success
is in his courage and his great ability.
Ther&iSinot a jnore logical thinker in
the Senate than he is, and the copious
eloquence displayed in his sketches of
rsTnt - ft. frarWiiQ nrioii Aivr,fi
to the Landmark, show him to be pos-
sessea ot a bold and ardent imagination,
equal to the most lofty flights of sus
tained and noble eloquence. And we
venture to predict that when Vance
takes the floor of the Senate he will at
oiice'assett his : claim to a far; higher
piace than that assigned him by the
writer trom whose opinion we dissent.
And the paragraph we have quoted at
tributes to him the qualities of resolute
courage and vigor which we : claim for
him. There were few people in an
posiuen, civil tot .military, . who made
any show of standing up against" Me.

him illustrates fhe force of his cftaraCT
