Two Letters from Horace Greeley. ! [Newspaper Article] — Beaver Radical — 28 March 1873

Two Letters from Horace Greeley. ! i(Fron the N. Y. Evening Mail.) We print below two letters written to a friend, years agf», by Horace Greeley, j and hitherto unpublished. Tbey are both of them characteristic—the first one open- i ing a view of the inner heart of one of to? most sensitive and yet most misun- i derstood of public men. The public has t>««n mide familiir with the almost idol- ! at:y wherewith Mr. Greeley loved the! two boys he lost long ago. Bat we have I uot met with any such tender and touch- ' 1Dg portrayal of the stricken father's grief as these tew lines furnish. The letler k^s a voluntary tribute of sympathy sent by its writer to a recently afflicted Ifienj, wu-rse little girl had won Mr. Greeley's heart a few months before, in toe west, but the notice of whose death had just met his eyes in the Tribune. The ftader will not fail to mark the really paretic tone of subdued sadness with ' which Mr, Greejley speaks of the little one j ^ho at six year...

IfflBTBOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Beaver Radical — 28 March 1873

IfflBTBOBS. A New Theory of the Celestial Phe-1 nomtnm. , Since tbe November meteors were occe very near to Uranus, for so much ia certainly known, while nevertheless it is very difficult to believe that he captured tfaem (actinc as officer for the sub) in the condition, of a very compact cloud or flight, no resource seems open to us but to. believe that he expelled them from fats own orb by some mighty eruptive action. And if we accept this view fn the case of the November meteors, we must adopt a similar interpretation of the origin of meteor systems generally. The new theory is then simply this, thai the streams or systems which ^rodttce displays of ehooticg-Btare, as well as the comets with which such, streams are as sociated, were at some distant epoch expelled from the interior of one qr other of the majorVplanets' which revolve/outside the zone ; of asteroids. This theory sounds very Jtartling at a first hearing. Yet let it be remembered .that (1) we have been almost ...

Dr. Osgood on Man. [Newspaper Article] — Beaver Radical — 28 March 1873

Dr. Osgood on Man. Dr. Osgood lectured at Rutgertg Institute a tew evenings since on "Man, the Riddle; What we do not know about him." He began with a reference to astronomy, the leading mechanical science exercising the leading influence to modern thought; the tendency of the age was to ascribe everything to mechanics; mind was identified with mutual organization; the heart was a suction-pump, and the brain an electrical machine. The speaker denied all this. We could not explain everything by mechanics; man as man was not a piece of mechanism ; the great mystery of the spiritual organization always remained inexplicable by mechanical agencies. We failed when we attempted to analyze man by physiology and psy oology; life by tbe dissecting knife and crucible, and the soul by logic and metaphysics. Tbe chemist said man was composed of fifty pounds of carbon or nitrogen disposed in a few psilfuls of water. That was the man of the chemist, but not the living man, the chemist lost ...

The Value of Time. [Newspaper Article] — Beaver Radical — 28 March 1873

The Value of Time. When the Roman Emperor said, "I have lost a day," he uttered a sadder truth than if be bad exclaimed,; "I have lost a kingdom." Napoleon said the reason why he beat Jhe-Auatrians was that they did not know: the value of five minutes. At tbe celebrated batile of Rivoli, the conflict seemed on the point of being decided against him. He saw the critical state of affairs, and instantly took his resolution. He dispatched a-flag to the' Austrian headquarters with j proposals for an armistice. The unwary]Austrian sol* diers fell into a snare. For a-few minutes the thunders of battle were hushed. Napoleon seized the precious moments, and, while amusing the enemy with mock negotiations, arranged his line of battle, changed his front, and in a few moments was ready to renounce the farce of discussion for the stern arbitrament of arms. The splendid victory of Rivoli was the result. The great moral victories and defeats of the world often turn on five min utes. Men ...
