A Washington correspondent of the Bal timore American says: At the outbreak of the war, as is well known, Mr. Corcoran’s sympathies were with the South, the conse quence of which, not wishing to actively identify himself with the cause, he decided to go abroad, which he consequently did, remaining there until the close of the long struggle. At lust, after peace was restored, 31r. Corcoran returned from his wanderings in foreign lands, and, with the exception of a few short journeys and the annual summer visit to the White Sulphur Springs, he has remained quietly at his beautiful homo in this city. When he determined to go abroad 'he placed his house in the hands of an agent, with instructions to use every possible means to pre vent its confiscation by the government, for the move was so sudden there had been no time to remove any of the elegant furniture, hangings and works of art for which it had long been justly celebrated. One morning shortly after this the agent in whose hands the house had been left,learned to his conster nation that orders had been issued to the medical corps of the army to take posses sion of it ou Monday morning, the intelli gence reaching him .Saturday. At this time 31. Montholon, the French minister, who came to this country from the court of MuximiUiun, was looking about for a suita ble residence for the legation. Hearing of this fortunate combination of circumstan ces, the agent at once hastened to the minis ter, and after presenting the exact state of the case, offered him the house upon such advantageous conditions that the bargain was at onco ratified. Sunday morning it was with genuine surprise that church-goers, en common with other pedestrians, no ticed the French flag flying from Mr. Corcoran's house, when the matter of its intended confiscation was already an open secret. The authorities were at once ap prised of the fact, and Secretary Seward, after a conference with the President, sent a request to M. Montholon for an imme diate audience. Polite and smiling, the French Minister responded to the summons. During the interview the Secretary of State became greatly excited over the way affairs had been managed, and when M. Montholon calmly remarked that, in view of the fact that the French flag floated over the house, there could be no further question of con fiscation, he blazed forth hotly, demanding whether the French flag was broad enough to cover such a daring act as to take posses sion of a house which had already been con fiscated by the government. Drawing him self to liis full height, M. Montholon replied in a dignified, emphatic manner: “The French flag may not be broad enough, Mr. Secretary, but Napoleon is.” In February, 1866, when Gen. Grant was stationed in Washington as commanding General of the armv, the French Minister, who still occupied the Corcoran house as the legation, issued invitations for the most magnificent ball which has probably ever been given in Washington, and which, in point of lavish expenditure and elegance, rivaled any of the most noted state enter tainments at foreign courts. Stories of the famous Montholon ball remain as fresh in the minds of those who attended as though it happened but yesterday. The French Minister, with his wife, the Marquise de Montholon, and her mother, Mrs. Gratriot, received the guests in the library of the mansion, the art gal lery having for the evening been con verted into a ball-room, at one end of which, in a deep recess hung with irimson velvet, stood the famous statue of the “Greek Slave” by Powers. The ball was given by the order of Louis Napoleon, in consequence of which the French ship, then lying at Annapolis, was ordered up that her officers might attend the entertainment. The city was tieming with officers of the United States army, all of those invited on this occasion appearing in full uniform, which added immeasurably to the brilliancy of the occasion. The Marquise tie Montho lon wore a magnificent dress, covered with jeweled fleur-de-lis, ordered from Paris for this ball, while across her breast, which was ablaze with jewels, were the Order of Napo leon and that of the house of Montholon It is seldom that at any entertain ment are gathered so many distinguished p tsoils as were present ou that occasion. There were then present, as brides, two women whose names are conspicuous, not only in this country, but abroad—Mrs. Kate Chase Sprague, whose brunette beauty was set off to best advantage by a dress of white moire striped with green, while an antique tiara of emeralds and diamonds sparaled in her dark hair. The other bride was the wife of Gen. Williams, of the army, and the former widow of Stephen A. Doug lass. She wore her wedding gown of white silk covered with tulle, with strands of pearls about her throat and in her blonde hair. Tne programme of the ball was to have had the cotillon danced at 2 o’clock, but owing to the immense crowd—a largo por tion of which, it was thought, were unin vited —which surged through the rooms, it was impossible to begin I >efore 5 o’clock a. m., from which it lasted untii 8 o’clock, when breakfast was served to a few specially invited guests. The cotillon was lei by Sir Frederick Bruce, at that time Minister from the Court of St. James, and a man of handsome physique and bearing. Gen. Grant's partner was Miss Harris, who had been one of the party in the box with President Lincoln the night of his assassi nation, and who subsequently married Col. Rathbone, only to meet her tragic death at his hands a few years since while living abroad. A geo I story in connection with this ball, whicli has not heretofore appeared in print, was told by the minister to Gen. Grant, who enjoyed it none the less heartily because it was at his expense. M. Montholon, being a warm personal friend and udmircr of Gen. Grant, issued orders to his steward at the outset of the ball that the General was to be treated as a special guest of honor, and the best wine that the cellars afforded placed at his disposal. The next day the steward approached the minister in great perplexity and inquired in an amazed way who was this Gen. Grant to whom ho was to give the best of every thing and who had shown himself so far ap preciative of the honor accorded that he had called for no less than sixteen bottles of champagne, nine bottles of brandy, nnd whisky ad infinitum. The explanation which shortly transpired was that the order having been overheard by a )artv of young fellows, they took advantage of the stew ard's credulity, prefacing every demand for the choicest liquors with the magic an nouncement that it was for Gen. Grant. From which it would seem that Shake speare's famous qherv, “What’s in a name!” found herein a fitting answer. Queer Freak of Insomnia. From the Xew York Independent. To illustrate the alleged sleepiness of a cer tain college town the following story is told: A certain professor, who marie the unusual complaint of insomnia, was advised to consult a Now York physician. He did so, and the latter after a most thorough ex amination of heart, lungs and all the vital organs, pronounced the professor absolutely sound. "I aniata loss,” the doctor Raid, “to account for it. You seem perfectly well. Perhaps something is preying upon vourmind!” “Oh, no." -aid the professor, “nothing at all.” “Perhaps you have some business cares!” “No: nothing of that sort. ’’ “And yet you say that you get no sleep at night!" “Oh, no! I never said that. I’m an right at night; but it’s insomnia in the daytime that bothers me!” The "Favorite Proscription.” Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., whose name has become known over the world through his success as a physician, and especially through the reputation or his "Golden Medical Discovery, has done a good work in preparing an especial remedy for the many distressing troubles classed as “female weaknesses.” It i* known as the “Favorite Prescription.” Under it* admin istration all the pelvic organ* arc strength ened, nnd the woman become* that embodi ment of health and beauty which God in tc-.d .1 her to be. THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JULY 5. 1887. BILL NYE ON THE FOURTH. ITS CELEBRATION AT WHALEN'S GROVE LAST YEAR. An Oration by a Self-Made Man Which Had Bones In It—Suggestions of Deep Interest to Taxpayers Freedom as it Suggests Itself to a Hickory Town ship Man—Our Duties to a Common Country. From the Xew York World. There were patriotic remarks and greased pig exercises at Whalen’s Grove last year on the Fourth, all of which, according to the Sandy Mush Record-Statesman , passed off with market! success. From the opening prayer to the base ball contest and greased pole doings, everything was harmonious, and the receipts were satisfactory. Col. L. Forsyth Heeley acted as the marshal of the day, wearing a maroon sash and mounted on his well-known horse, MambrinO King. A serious accident in the early morning was happily averted by Col. Heely’s coolness and self-possession. A lady from Lower Honuny, whose name could not be ascertained, while actively on gaged and listening to the band and holding her young child so that it could get a good view of the sun, became entangled in her train, which had worked around in front, and while recovering herself Col, L. Forsyth Heeley canio down the street in advance of the fire laddies. The horse was rearing high in the air and going sidewise with a squeaking sound, which seemed tola' caused by the friction between his second and third stomach. His mouth was wide open and his fiery-red gums could be seen as far as the eye could reach. Almost every one thought there would be a holocaust, but at that trying instant, as if by magic, Col. Heely decided to go down the other street. Our fire laddies made a fine apjiearance, in their new, hot uniforms and were not full during the parade, as was stated by the Hickory township World. Everybody seemed to feel an interest in patriotism with the exception of an old party from a distance who opened the exer cises by cutting a large watermelon and dis tributing it with a lavish hand among him self. He then went to sleep in the corner of a fence, where lie would have been greatly pestered by flies if he had found out about it in time. After a pleasant and courteous prayer by Rev. Mr. Meeks, in which he laid before the Lord a National policy which he felt certain would make a great hit, our Glee Club sang Oh, say can you see, etc. Judge Larraby read the Declaration of In dependence ill a rich, dark red voice, and a self-made man from Hickory Township de livered the following impromptu address, the manuscript of which ho kindly furnish ed to the Record-Statesman. “Fellow-Citizens: This is the anniver sary of tlie day when freedom towards all and malice toward none first got a foothold in this country. And we are now to cele brate that day. I say that on that day Tireny and usurpation got a setback that they will never recover from. We then paved the way for the poor, oppressed for eigner, so that he could come to our shores and take liberties with our form of govern ment. To be a foreigner here in America to-day is one of the sweetest boons. If I could be just what I would like to lie, I would be an op pressed foreigner, landing on our shores, free from the taxation and responsibility of government, with no social demands made on me, with nothing in my possession but a hearty Godspeed from both political parties and a strong yearning for freedom. Oh, why was I not born an alien, that both parties wouldn't dast to reproach; ail alien that can come here and find a government already established, with no flies on to it: a government of the people, by the people and for the people? [Firecrackers and applause.] “On the day that Button Gwinnett put his name to the statement that ill) men was created more or less equal, the spot on which we now stand was a howling wilderness. Where yonder lemonade stand now stands and realizes a clean profit of $47 35 on an in vestment of $6 59, the rank thistle nodded in the wynd and the wild fox dag his hole un scared. If you do not believe this I refer you to the principal of our public school, who is to-day assisting in the baud, and who is now in the act of up-ending his alto horn to pour out about a teacupful of liquid mel ody that he had left over from the last tune. “And why is this? Why are wo to-day a free people, with a surplus in the Treasury that nobody can get at! (Loudapplause and squeal from a grass-fed horse tied to a tree who is being kicked by a red two-vear-old owned by the Pathmaster of Road District No. 3.) “Why are our resources so great that they almost equal our liabilities! Why is ev erything done to make it pleasant for the rich man and every inducement held out for the poor man to accumulate more and more poverty? Why is it that so much is said about the tariff by men who do not support their families? Why is it that when we vote for a President of the United States we have to take our choice between a statesmanlike candi date with great ability ami proclivities for grand larceny-—why is it that wo are given our choice bet ween this kind of a man and what Virgil refers to in his ‘Childo Harold' as a chump? (Cheers, and cries of ‘That’s so’ from a man who is riveted to the spot by means of anew pitch-plank on which he is sitting and whicli wul not permit him to move out of the sun.) “One hundred years ago the tastes of our people were simpio. Now it takes so much simplicity to keep Congress going that the people don't get a chance at it. A century ago common, home-made rum was the only relaxation known to a plain but abstemious people. Now it takes a man with a mighty good memory to recall the names of sonioof the things lie has drunk when his wife asks him alxiut it on the following morning. I claim to have a good memory of names and things generally, but if you want to get me mixed up and have fun with me, you ran do It that way. “But, fellow citizens, how can we best presorve the blessing of freedom and fork it over unimpaired to our children! How can we enhance the blond-bought right which is inherent in every human being, of the people, for the people and by the people, where tyrant foot hath never trod nor bigot forged a chain, for to look back from our country's glorious natal day or forward to a glorious, a happy and prosperous future with regard to purity of the ballot, or free speech. I say for one we cannot do other wise [Prolonged applause], “I would rather have my right hand eleave to the roof of my mouth than to utter a sentiment that 1 would regret, but I say that as a people, as a nation, or as an inalienable right which no man can gainsay or successfully controvert, not for political purposes, and yet I am often led to inquire whither arc we drifting, not only as a peo ple and as a nation, but as a country and as a joint School District No. 0, where we now stand and when wo are |>aying a school t/vvclr-r this summer £92 a month to tench the children, little prattling children, during the hot summer weather, how many left of intestines there are in the human liody and what is liest to do for it? Last winter we paid £34 per month to a man who o|>ened the school with prayer nnd then made a picture of the digestive orguns on the blackboard. And still we wonder that, polities is corrupt! "I toll you that the seeds of vioo and wickedness is often sowed at school in the minds of the young by teacher* who are paid a large salary to ilp far different, what do you think of a man who would open a school with prayer and then converse freely about the alimentary canal? Such a man would lead a life of the deepest infamy if he had the least encouragement. "Ho I say. fellow citizens, that we must guard against the influences of the public schools ns a nation, for the people, of the neonlennil *iv the iiaoolh F/lurntion is often a blessing in disguise, but we should not pry into things that the finite mind has no business with. How much was Galileo ahead in the long nm for going out of his sphere? He was boycotted from morning till night and died poor. Look at Demos thenes. Look at Diogenes. They pried into science, and both of them was poor pro viders and have since died. Of course their names are frequently used in deluding schools, and some claim that this is big pay for what they went through, but I say give me a high-stepping horse, the bright smile of dear ones who are not related to mo in any way, the approval of the admiring throng, a large woolly dog that will do ns I tell him, a modest little home and unlimited credit at the stove, and 1 do not care how much B. will have to use off from the diameter of a given grindstone for which he paid an undivided one-fifteenth. "I know that this is regarded as a queer doctrine by what is called our more Ad vanced Thinkers, but I say let every man who pants for fame select his own style of pant and go ahead. I bid him a most hearty Godspeed and hope he will do well. “But what makes me mad is for a man to come to me and dictate what I shall pant for. This is called intolerance by people who can afford to use words of that size. Intolerance is a thing that makes me tired. Whether it’s religious, political or social in tolerance, I dislike it very much. People that think I will enjoy voting for a yaller dog that had boon picked out for me, or that I will be tickled to death to indorse the re ligious dogmas of an effete monicky witli my eyes shet, don’t know me. 1 say, let every man rely solely on liis own thinker, and cinnined be he who first cries hold, enough! lam not a profane man, but I quote from a poem in using the above quo tation. “But again. In closing, let me say that we owe it to our common country to be peaceable citizens nnd pay our taxes with out murmuring. The time to get in our fine work is on the valuation, and it is too late to kick after that. Let us cultivate a spirit of loft}’ patriotism, but believe noth ing just to oblige others. I used to be a great believer in anything that was sub mitted for my approval. That was what kept me back. Now, if a man like Jay Gould says lie is not feeling so well as he did, I make him show me his tongue. “We are here today to celebrate the birthday of American freedom, ns I under stand it, and I am here to say that what ever may be said against our refinement and our pork, our style of freedom is sought for everywhere. It is a freedom that will stand any climate, and I hear it very highly spoken of wherever I go. “I am here to state that as boy and man I have been a constant user of American freedom for over fifty years, and I can truly say that I feel no desire to turn back; also that there will be a grand, free-for-all scuffle for a greased pig on the vacant lot south of the church at 7 o’clock, after which fireworks will be served to those who desire to remain.” And thus did the Fourth of July pass with all its glories in Whalen's Grove in the year of our independence the 1J oth. Bill Nye. A PRIVATE CIRCUS. How a Few Rich Parisian Nobodies Manage to Amuse Themselves. Paris Letter to London Telegraph. After the Grand Prix, the most remark able event which agitates the frivolous mind of the French world of fashion is the per formance in which patrician clowns and blue-blooded acrobats display their skill in that peculiar establishment known as the Cirque Molier. The season is, of course, nominally over, and great ladies have pub lished to the city and the world the fact that they will no longer be at home on such and such an afternoon. But the social gath erings which were in full blast during the fortnight preceding the Grand Prix are still continued in many quarters, and the comparatively small slice of humanity known us tout Paris has not yet disappeared into the country. The Cirque Molier was crowded yesterday with a contingent of spectators, tastefully and fashiouaby dressed. The proprietor of the circus at Pussy is called by liis friends “El Benor Molierm,” and lie provides two entertainments of an equestrian kind every year. These are classed among the spectacles copnrehic of Paris. The first, which has just taken place, was for the demi-monde , the rank and file of Parisian noeeurs, or pleasure hunters, and those jicrsons who are denomi nated under the rattier widely npplied term of artistes. The second performance, which is to take place on July 12 will be witnessed only by persons whose pedigree must lx> as select as that of the celebrated Highlander whose ancestors hail a boat of their own during the flood. Foremost among the equestrians who ca reered yesterday before an admiring crowd was M. Molier himself, a middle-sized, close cropped and chestnut-moustached man, about forty years of age, who, having noth ing better to do with his money, hasexpend ed a lump sum of it on his private circus, and has submitted himself to a rigid regime in order to dazzle Parisians by his horse manship and general acrobatic dexterity. Next to him came a young lady, Mile. Wal burg, who jmnjied her horse Ivanoff over high hurdles, and M. Adrien Marie, the painter, who drew sketcliesof M. Molier and of the prettiest woman in the circus while going ut full gallop around the ring. With these there were ancient and modern fencing Lints, in which tallies took part. Three ladies were dressed as clowns,undone as a Pierrot in black, while a Mile. Rivolta carried the palm away as a dancing liouri, varying with voluptuous postures and lascivious lassitude her fantastic whirl* and tiger-like bouii'is. The whole performance was the apotlieotcs of a few well male men and half a dozen well shaped women, who are rather proud of their ankles, and who find that the ordinary mode of dress does not permit them to exhibit their corporeal charms as fully as they would wish. The Magic Words. From the Jewish K.rpnnent. The scene of conflict was a level plain That lay among the stretching hills of Rpain, And on the sand that glistened in the sun Ten thousaud lay whose hours of life had run. Till noonday's beat, from earliest sign of dawn The battling forces were in combat drawn, And ere the sun sank silent in the west A host of men had found eternal rest. Behind the battlefield, beneath a tent, A soldier lay on death his vision bent. A kindly priest, that sjaike of Ood, was near. A doctor, ue was there, hut full of fear. Each was a Jew, had each a Hebrew's zeal, But neither dared his name or race reveal.
