The remarks attributed to them sirs hot exactly authenticated by history, but they, are too good not to be believed, It Is said that when John Hancock affixed his bold autograph he remarked, "the Englishmen will have no difficulty in read* ing that," that when Franklin sighed he said, "Now, wo must all 'hang together or we will hang separate-" ly," and that Charles Carroll, of .Carrolltoa, when asked why he wrote his place of residence replied that there was another Charles Carroll and he didn't want them to hang the wrong man. The most enthusiastic advocate of the great measure and one who led the debate in its support was Johu Adams of Massachusetts, and when the declaration was adopted ho wrote to his wife in these prophetic words: "This will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America; celebrated by descending generations as the greatest anniversary festival, commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God; solemnized with pomps, shows, games, sports, guns, bdlls, bonfires and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other, from this time forward, forever." Of all the eloquent words uttered regarding the declaration of independence by the orators of the gen- .erations which have succeeded its inception no more impressive sentence was ever spoken than one pronounced 'by Ralph Waldo Emerson in an address delivered in Boston during the civil war. Referring to a contemptuous characterization of a certain political speaker he said: "We have been told that the declaration of independence is a glittering generality; it is an eternal ubiquity." Among America's later statesmen no one entertained a more excellent (regard for the declaration, or more persistently emphasized its impoi-t- ant relation to legislation, than Charles Sumner. He always held that the constitution should be interpreted in the spirio of the declaration. He said: "The declaration of Independence has a supremacy grander than that of the constitution. Jivery word in tho constitution 'is (subordinate to tho declaration. The declaration precedes tho constitution in time ana is more elevated in character. The constitution is au earthly body, if you please; the declaration of independence is the very soul itself." , An Indistinct Recollection. i "Did you back Slogo in the last race?" asked a regular visitor at the track. j "I don't know," was the mournful reply. |"I was so dazed that I am 'just beginning to realize things.

HE i tion of the Mosquito territory under the leadership of the yountr chief Clarence is a scarce- disguised firiti s h conspiracy to strangle the commerce and influence of the United States by seizing the entrance of the unfinished Nicaragua ship canal. The plan is so daring that the country is scarcely awake to the actual peril of the situation, although the sudden departure of American warships for the Mosquito coast indicates that somebody in Washington understands the meaning of the apparently local rebellion in Central America. It is amazing to see hoxv airily the American press deals with a crisis that threatens the future commercial and military supremacy of the United States on this side of the Atlantic. The victory of Clarence and his naked savages would mean a British protectorate over the Mosquito coast and British control of the eastern mouth of the Nicaragua canal. Every statesman in the country has declared that the American people must have dominion over thtit waterway. It will bring New York 10,000 miles nearer to San Francisco. It will bring San Francisco 11,000 miles nearer to New Orleans. It will bring Acapulco 10,uOO miles nearer'to New Orleans. It will open up the markets of Asia to the Atlantic states. It will bring the industries of the eastern and southern states anto direct relations with the western coast of South America, j But, more important still, it f „ WSS employed td effect tfe*i British ffott their foothold in Centfai America. *h* ceuntry sit* then what- the dountry* seetnsto bS blind td noW.

In 1S69 the protectorate over the coast was yielded to Honduras and in 1800 tha Mosquito country passed by treaty into the domain of Nicaragua. It is idle to talk of the coast natives declaring war on their ewn motion. The inhabitants are chiefly aboriginal Indians and negroes. They are a lazy, shiftless people among whom honesty is scarcely known. They hunt and fish; a few raise cattle and till the ground. But a more worthless, immoral and inert pcopTo it would be hard to find. Noihing but British energy and British domination could stir them up to fight.

Well, in the centre of the throng was the Inevitable man who thinks his own rights and privileges are superior to those of everybody else, lie was puffing a cheap cigar and blowing the smoke into the faces of the womett who stood near him. Finally a mild-looking young fellow expostulated with hi hi. "Your cigar is very offensive to these ladles sir," he said. "Then let tho ladles get out of the Way," answered the fresh youth. The othef remained silent for a mlh- tite ahd then, as the nuisance continued, he said in a more determined tone: "My friend, will you of will you not stop smoking that cigar while you are in this crowd?" I won't," answered the fresh young man, with an impudent leer. "I think you .will," replied the other, and as he spoke he swung the palm of a broad, muscular hand iu front of the fresh youth's face. The big palm, not the mim, but the cigar, and tho next minute the fresh youth wan coughing and spitting and going through a system of linprovlshed gymnastics to got that cigar out of his Ou-oat, where the big palm had driven It.

He, too, saw the possibility of war between the United States and Great Britain over this tremendous issue. And now the first move in the British plan has been made. The Mosquito coast has rebelled.

Brecklnridge Lately Sent St. Petersburg, Clifton E. Breckinridge »f Arkansas lias been appointed by President Cleveland minister to Russia in place of Mr Andrew D. White, who has resigned. Mr. Breckinridge is the son of the Hon. John C. Breckinridge, once vice- president of the United States, democratic candidate for the presidency in 1800, and subsequently a general in the confederate army. Mr. Breckinridge himself was born at Lexington, Ky., Nov. 23, 1840, and is therefore in his forty-eighth year. He served ip the confederate array as a private and as a midshipman in the confederate navy. Afterward he was a clerk, then a student at Washington college (now Washington and Lee university) then a planter and cotton factor in Arkansas. He has served his district The PoMtofllce nt Sen. The system of railway postofflces lia& been found so successful, and n means of saving so much valuable time, that It has been extended to the transatlantic steamships. This was begun uudor Mr. Wanamaker's administration as postmaster general, but so far mail clerks have only boon placed on the American ships running to Southampton nnd on the Gorman ships that go to Bremen ami Hamburg. On each of the vessels of the lines mentioned large staterooms have been set aside and lilted out for the use of the postal clerks. Big nicks of pigeonholes stand up against the walls, and the mail pouches hang from stands in the center of the room. In those post- offlces the clerks work from eight to'ton hours a day during the entire voyage, distributing the mails by cities and states, when coming this way, and by railroad Hues when going to Germany. On each ship there is one American clerk, one German clerk, nnd a German assistant. The American is in charge going eastward, and the German has charge of tilings coming this way. These clerks, of course, are men of energy and intelligence. They are the best material taken from the postal services of both countries. The Germans wear gaudy Uniforms with military caps and swords, and are called by the high-sounding name of "Relchs Post Secrotaor." The American calls himself a "sen post clerk." Iir spite of the lack of gold braid and Hide-arms, however, the Americans are tho most reliable men. It is said that when the Eider went ,011 the rocks on the coast of Ireland last year the "Helchs Tost Secrctner" grabbed his sword and made for the life-boats. Tho American stood to his business, and did not leave his post until he had overseen the transfer of the mails from the leaking ship to a tug. These sea post clerks •handle about 140,000 letters nnd 00 sacks of papers each trip; but in December and January their work Is almost doubled.—Harper's Young People. Another Time. The presidential campaign of 1SS8 was hotly w.aged, and the outcome disappointed the hopes of many, as, Indeed, must bo true of every election. In some parts of the South, confidence in Mr. Cleveland's success was boundless, and the supremacy of tho Democratic party, undoubted. Iu a large Georgian city, writes a correspondent, this expectation was so well settled that a cannon was planted and loaded, ready to be discharged when the decisive news should come. But the wished-for returns never arrived, and iii the still night-watches the work of the patriotic Democrats was supplanted by their scattering Republican friends, who placarded over the mouth of the cannon this expressive sentiment: "A charge to keep I have," i.

An English reformer suggests a tax upou Christian aames, to be levied at baptism. Every child, according to the plaa, is to be allowed one Christian name free, a moderate duty—say twenty-five cents, would be levied on the second name, a greatly increased charge, say $1,23—on tha third, $6 on the fourth, and so on. On this scale the baptism of the infant prlaoe of the house of York would have bene- fitted the governmeut to the amouat of more than $1,100. The old story, good enough to be true, is revived about John Quincv Adams as a disciple of the geutlo art of fishing. It is told that a Quinoy client of his, whose case was to be tried on a certain morning, was unable to get his counsel to go to Boston, or to leave his fishing boat, except long enough to write a note to the judge, whioh, when presented, caused that worthy magistrate to announce to the court: "Mr. Adams is detained on important business." The note read: "Dear Judge: For tho sake of old Isaak Walton, please continue my case until Friday. The smelt are bit- ine and I can't leave." • Colonel F. C. Pierce of Chicago is engaged in compiling tho genealogy of tho Whitney family of Massachusetts. The emigrant ancestor settled there in 1635.

Tho officer who won the cross was Lieutenant Alexander Roberts Dunn, and it was bestowed on him for his signal bravery in putting down three Russian lancers who were attacking him, and in saving a fellow soldier from the sword of a Russian hussar.
