Col. Derby and the Flag.
From the Denver Newr.
Some three or four weeks ago ( <>.
Coutautof Lamar arrived at the Hotel
Ramona, at Cascade, Cof. I>erl>y, the
malinger, shook him by the hand,
scanned his features earnestly for a
moment, ami inquired :
“Mr. Coulunt, were you ever in
London, Ontario ?"
“I was tliorc once,” replied Coutant,
“about 1SG7, 1 think.’
“Was pretty certain it was you,”
said Col. Derby. “You were at the
Tecumsch House on the night it was
attacked by tiic mob.”
The two shook hands, and the tee
oguition brought out the following
Col. Derby was a native of Mont
gomery, Ala., and was an ardent and
enthusiastic Confederate. After the
close of the war lie drifted into ('amt-
da and became manager of a promi
nent hotel in London. During the
excitement of the Fenian inva-ion a
very hitter feeling, as will he remem
bered, existed all over Canada against
the United States, and one evening a
mob assembled about Col. Derby’s
hotel in London and demanded that
he pulldown the stars and'stripes
which he had floated over the house.
The Colonel very politely but firmly
declined to comply with tlio demand.
Then the excited Canadians proposed
to take them down, and Col. Derby
began vigorous measures for defense.
The street was packed with an angry
crowd, and its leaders were evidently
bent on raiding the hotel. One Hag
hung outside just above the door, nod
this the mol) succeeded in pulling
down by driving nails into a large
pole and forming a hook, with which
they tore down the stars and stripes.
But when they attempted to enter tin-
hotel to rcaclt the flag on the dome of
the building, they were met by Col.
Derby and the few Americans wito
happened to lie stopping at the hotel,
who swore they would kill the first
man who offered a further insult to
the national flag. There was a dang
crous glitter in the eye of the ex-Cun
federate colonel as, with his revolvers,
lie faced the Canadian mob and warn
ed them back. The American con
quered. The mob hesitated, fell back
dispersed, and the old flag continued
to float over the bold so long as Col.
Derby remained its manager. The
incident has its lesson, and illustrates
not only the personal bravery oi tin
man, but also the love of the . Ameri
can for the llag, no matter what
uniform lie may liavo worn dur"ig
the civil war.

The 1804 Dollar.
“There is .something ctiri-ii's about
the American silver dollar anti half
dollar of 1801,” Raid a numismatist.
“There were about “0.000 of the dol
lars coined, but not one of them ever
got into circulation. Two of them
are in well known coin collections to
day, however, and they arc the most
vnluableof all American coins. Why
the dollar of 1801 was never seen in
circulation after leaving the mbit is
one of the unsolved government
mysteries. It is asserted on good
nuthoriiy that the two 1801 dol'ars
now in existence, while having been
made from the original die, were in
reality not coined for many years after
that year, when they were xr-repti-
tiously struck, and, it is supposed,
issued to a person high in authority,
from whom they subsequently paused
into the collections referred to. The
half dollar of 180-1 is surrounded
by a mystery equally profound. There
were over 150,000 of these coined, but
not one of these were ever known to
be in circulation. On the other hand,
but 700 quarter dollars were coined
in that year, and specimens of tlie-e
are in every collection and numismat
ist’s shop.”—Philadelphia Press.
