No soldier ever went into battle with more enthusiasm, more aspiration, more devotion to a sacred cause than the President had when he came to Paris; but day after day in those months we saw him growing grayer and grayer, grimmer and grimmer, with the fighting lines deepening in his face. Here was a man 63 years old a man always delicate in health.

Von Moltke, who built the German staff system, said that the Civil War was a strife between two armed mobs; though I think if he had brought his Prussians to Virginia a year later, in '63, which would have ended the Civil War there and then, he would have had an interesting time before he returned to Berlin.

But all this is a means to an end, the expression of an individuality with its intimate experiences. The emotional content of many of these trifles trifles if considered only by their size is really stupendous." Spoken like a brave man and not a pedant!

The public debt on the 20th ultimo, exclusive of the stock authorized to be issued to Texas by the act of 9th September, 1850, was $62,560,395.26. The receipts for the next fiscal year are estimated at $51,800,000, which, with the probable unappropriated balance in the Treasury on the 30th June next, will give as the probable available means for that year the sum of $63,258,743.09.

Ninety-four of them, all told, were seized that year, and in them there had been in four years 956 deaths a rate of 62.9 when the general city death-rate was 24.63.
