II. T. DOUGLASS,
Editor and Proprietor.
L0U1SBURG, N. C,
He died prime-minister at the
age of eighty-one, on the 18th of
October,- 1865. "The half-open
cabinentbox on his table and the
unfinished letter on ) his desk tcsti
fied that he was at his post to the
last." And so he died the last of
p, Uly nasty of great statesmen. A
thorough Englishman, both in taste
and temper, he made his country
men proud of him, because he was
proud of his country. He believed
in England as the best and great
est country in the world. During
his long administration of the
Foreign Ufficc, ho steadily adhered
to the principle of insisting against
all powers ..great orsmalHoii,the. i
rights of England. He' did not be
lievcin the modern doctrine of non
intervention or selfish isolation.
He always vindicated the authority
of the English name, ai:d believed
that a reputation for strength and
spirit was necessary to a great na
tion. But he had no love for war
and for many years, in the midst of
extraordinary difficulties, he pre
served the peace of Europe. He
hated tyranny, and he was the
staunch champion of constitutional
ism against despotism. Throughout
Europe, with libeial sympathies,
Palmerston identified England! He
was no fanatic. He was a nracti-
cal statesman. "He did what he
could." He acted up to the best of
his light at the time. There was
an entire absence of claptrap in his
speech and his conduct. He was
intent only on saying the exact
thing exactly; and it was this which
made him the best of letter-writers.
His letters have the unstudied
freshness of "written talk,- they
sparkle with a humor instinct with
strong common sense, and quite,
spontaneous. There was no desire
or effort to be witty, yet he could
catcli and improve any passing
humorous thoughts. He once,
laughingly, quoted the authority of
an eminent physician,, that contin
uance in office, with tire resulting
employment, was good lor the
health. "Would not active oppo
sition do as well?' "Xo, no; that
stirs up the bile and causes ascidity.
Ask Disraeli if it docs not."
He was a generous landlord, and
few of his letters are more interest
ing than the accounts he sends of
his plantations at Broadlands, of
the .Methodist gardenor whose
preaching he intends if possible to
stop, and of his improvements of
his estate at Sligo. From the latter
he got but little profit. He said
one day, that he had a thousand
tenants who paid under five pounds
each. "But do they pay?'V "Not
always: they pay when they can
when they sell the pig."
Lord Palmerston was brave, in
trepid, and honorable; no stain of
baseness ever soiled his reputation.
The manner in which he comporled
hia self to Lord John Russell re
flects the magnanimity of the En
glish statesman, the moderation of
the English gentleman. "If,? he
writes, ''Russell's man be a good
and proper man, I should wish to
appoint him, because yon know
Russell once treated me iu a vcry
rough way, and I desire to show
that I have quite forgotten it.

ing mishaps of business, and a mer
ry ditty of the olden time pops up
its little head, breaks in upon the
ugly train of thought, throws the
mind into another channel; light
breaks in from behind the cloud in
the sky, and a new courage is given
to us. The honest man goes sing
ing to his work, and when the day's
labor is done, his tools laid aside,
and he is on his way home, where
wife, and child, and tidy table, and
cheerful fireside await him, he can
not help but whistle or sin:
