ADVENTUROUS BOYS

On last Saturday, there passed through Galena, by stage, two boys, one of four and the other seven years of age. They left the county of Clare, Ireland, the first of January, for Dubuque (Dublin?) and came the whole way unattended by relatives or particular friends. When they left New York, on their journey westward, they had but $2.50 with which to pay their expenses; but when they arrived at Chicago, the sum had grown to $6.
Weakness and confiding faith are, often, ever a surer protection than strength. Whatever may be the defects in the American character, at the present times, a want of sympathy is not due of them. – Galena Gazette
