(From the Friend Supplement, November 9th.)
" "We Left not One Minnte too Soon."
In conversation with a very sensible and reli
able first officer of one of the lost chips in tbe
Arctic, we asked him this question : " Did you
not quit your vessel too soon, ought you not
to have waited a little longer?" He replied
with much decision, We left not one minute
too soon." This appears to be the unanimous
opinion of all the masters, officers and seamen,
with wbom we have conversed.
We have heard an opposite opinion expressed
by some who never saw the Arctic Ocean. It ib
an easy matter in Honolulu, with tbe thermometer
at 80 , to criticise the actions of men who have
laced danger and starvation under the shadow of
icebergs, and while the icy barrier was moment
arily pressing a fleet of ships on the barren shores
of Siberia. We have no doubt that the owners
and agents of whaleships and Insurance Coin
jianies in New Bedford, seated before a good coal
tire, will express their deliberate opinion that the
fleet was abandoned too soon. We have been
permitted to read tbe private journal of one of
the shipmasters, whose ship was saved, and it
tells a story of anxiety that ought to silence all
foolish censure of those shipmasters who were
compelled to leave behind them their hard-eatned
wealth. The idea that thirty-three shipmasters
and their crews abandoned their ice-bound vessels,
except from stern and dire . necessity is not be
entertained for one moment.
The following brief journal of Mr. Earl, Chief
officer of the Emily Morgan, which was among
the lost, we are glad to publish. The entry on
the 12th of September, indicates what the fate
of those men might have been, had no ships been
spared te have brought away the crews of the
abandoned vessels :
Sept. 1 Light southerly winds with overcast
weather. The ice pressing in upon the land. All
egress from our present position is cut off, both to
north and south, as the ice is driven up into 9
feet of water. The bark Roman is carried oft"
in the pack.
Sept. 2. Light and variable winds, mostly
from the southern bound. The main pack is
slowly but 6teadily advancing toward the land,
pressed in by the vast field to the nortnwest ol us.
This morning at 1 A. M., the brig Comet was
crushed by the ice and sold at auction, with all
her stores, oil, Jbc, for thirteen dollars. The
crew of the Roman came down to the fleet, she
having been crushed by the ice, the men barely
escaping with their lives. The Reindeer was
hard pressed by the ice.
Sept. 3. Light and variable winds, mostly
from the southward.
Sept. 4. Light westerly wind with fog; ice
opens a little, but the main pack seems immovable.
Sept. 5. Light breeze from N. N. E. to E. S. E.
At 12 M., cast off from the ice and came to in the
Sept. 6. Early part of tbe day light and vari
able winds. In the afternoon light breeze at
S. W., increasing to a fresh wind canting to W.
Sept. 7. Begins with fresh wind from S. W.
canting to N. W. Saw whales, struck one ; the
second officer accidentally shot himself through
the head with a bomb gun, the lance passing
through his head, killing hiin almost instantly.
Latter part of the day calm.
&epi. o. .Begins wiin iresn winus irum o. .,
ntinz earlv in the day to N. W. The main
pack pressing in upon us, endangering tbe ship.
The anchor weighed and run in shore an eighth
of a mile and came to in 3 fathoms of water.
This eighth of a mile is all the navigable water
between the heavy masses of ground ice and land,
and the pack still advancing. There seems to be
little hope of escaping from our present position ;
to the north is simply impossible, to tne south
the greatest depth of water along the ice is 6 feet,
and decreasing hourly.
Sept. 9. First part of the day fresh breeze
from N. W., and N. N. W. All of the northern
portion of the fleet except tbe Gtorge, Gay Head,
and Concordia, (locked in the ice)came down and
anchored to S. W., of us. The ice is still slowly
closing upon us ; no drift ice afloat in the land
water. Sept. 10. Have the wind fresh from N. N. W.
to N. E., with clear cold weather. By Bunshine
the ice had made an inch thick in the land-water,
so there was considerable difficulty in moving
about with a whale-boat. The Reindeer and
Contest weighed anchor in the forenoon and for
nearly an hour scarcely moved, so firmly had the
ice made around them. At 6 P. M., weighed
anchor and run down about a mile to S. W.
where we bad the protection of a shoal of 9 feet
water off shore of us. As the ice had thawed a
great deal during the day we made better head
way than the Contest and Reindeer, xesterday
four boats left tbe ship to endeavor to establish
communication with the lower portion of the fleet
which is supposed, or hoped, to be off Icy Cape.
The wind, though favorable, has not moved tlie
Sept. 11. Light breeze from E.,witb overcast
weather and toward night rain. Broke out pro
visions and boiled six barrels of beef, furnished
two boats with provisions and clothing for the
crew for a start southward. As I write, one of
the boats that started two days ago has returned
reporting that. there are three 6hips in clear water
and a prospect that four more will soon be in
safety. The ice has been pressed up on the outer
6hoal a 6hort distance to-day.
Sept. 12. The Captain left in the starboard
boat at 4 A. M., leaving orders for me to act ac
cording to circumstances ; 44 if the other ships
are abandoned to abandon ours at the same time
to do as the others do." For my part I will
not cross the Arctic ocean in an open whale-boat
laden with men and provisions in the latter part
of the month of September and October. As far
as Icy cape there is no danger, but beyond that,
(if all Bbips' companies have to take to boats to
Behring's Strait) tbe sea is dangerous at this sea
son of the year. Out of the fourteen hundred
men not a hundred will survive. I will return
from Icy Cape if ships cannot be found. At 5
A. M., I started two other boats with provisions.
Will a Lady ever be President T
An editor contemplating the probability of hav
ing a lady President, discourses eloquently. Hear
him : .
We hope so, if she is pretty. What fun to be
under petticoat government, without any imme
diate danger of a broomstick or a Bcolding !
EVERY GOOD LOOKING CHAP
would have a chance for office then. How glo
rious to be closeted alone witb the fair Executive
of the nation, on business of a private and con
fidential nature ! The old custom of kissing the
hand might be revived; and from tbe hand to
lips isn't such a great distance, yon know. The
Presidentcbs must either be a widow or a maiden
lady, so as to give an ambitious fellow a chance.
Her bust in marble, and her portrait in canvass.
would look well, displayed all over tbe country,
instead of some low browed, commonlooking
rooster, with stubbed beard and the bair of " an
ornary cuss." The fair bead of the nation would
of course set all the fashions. Her administra
tion would inaugurate an era of love and elegance,
to the utter confusion of dusty politics.
LET US HAVE A LADY PRESIDENT,
by all means, say we. The electioneering will be
rich, when two rival lady candidates are up for
tbe highest office in the gift of the people. Fancy
one of them a plump, comely female, and the oth
er a lean, lank, scrawny specimen of womanhood.
Y e should have torchlight processions, with ban
ners bearing such mottoes as Full Bosoms For
ever Down witb Paint and Powder Hurrah for
Full Garters No Withered Shanks for Us Pret
ty Ankles Are the Nation's Bulwarks No Cotton
Breast-works for Oar Country's Defenses To
Arms, ye Brave, When Tbey are Fair and Dimp
led and so on. At the polls, huge placards
would be seen, with such inspiring legends as
"Vote for Full Corseta and Lovely Women,"
" Give the Kissing Candidate a Chance," ' Go
for tbe .Belle of tbe fsation, etc. Ibese will be
high old dajB in the history of our republic, and
may we live to see them. We speak for the
berth of Private Secretary.
Only an Idea. Bulwer says poverty is only an
idea in nine cases out of ten. Home men with
ten thousand dollars a year suffer more for want
of means than others with five hundred dollars.
The reason is, the richer man has artificial wants.
His income is ten thousand dollars a year, and he
suffers enough in being dunned for unpaid debts
to kill a sensitive man. A man that earns a dol
lar a day and does not go in debt is the happier
of the two. Very few people who have never
been rich will believe this ; but it is true. There
are thousands and thousands with princely in
comes who never know a minute's peace. There
is really more happiness among the workingmen
in the world than amoDg those who are called
Great Fires of the World.
In view of tbe present terrible conflagration in
l n,;MTn. a short summary of ereat nres ma i
occurred in various parts of the world in years
past, may not be uninteresting :
' THE LONDON FIBE.
The great fire in London in 1666. during the
reign ol Charles II, is probably without parallel
in nistory. It began at a baker s house in Rud
dington Lane, behind Monumental Yard and de-
change, tbe Custom House, t:
lege. and many other public buildings, bedes
. T , -: LaAft utreete. It ex-
ia,zuu noufes, tajiug t"" . , .
tended over an area of 430 acrea. and the loss
was estimated at that time at 5? 50, 000. 000. lhe
narrow streets, the houses buiit entirely of wooo,
a dry season, and a violent east wind, were so
many concurring circumstances, which rendered
it eaiy to assign the reason of the uc.tlo "f
so much property. Tbe progress of this fire was
only stopped when a number of buildings were
THE NEW TORE FIRES.
The city of New York has, on different occa
sions, been visited with most disastrous fires, the
largest of which occurred on December 26th,
1835, when a fire swept through the I irsc Ward,
east of Broadway and below Wall street, de
stroying 648 stores and ware houses, and property
valued at $20,000,000. .
In September, 1776, soon after passing into the
hands of the British, 500 buildings were con
sumed by fire.
September 6th, 1839. forty-six buildings were
destroyed, entailing a loss of $10,000,000 ; and
on July 19ih, 1845, 302 stores and dwell.ngs,
valued at $6,000,000.
THE HAMBURG FIRE.
On the 5th of May, 1842, Hamburg, Germany,
was visited by the fire fiend, and a tract nearly a
mile square was burnt over, being nearly one
third of the city: 1,747 houses were destroyed,
laying waBte sixty one streets, and raged three
days. This portion of the city was built on a
piece of swampy land, reclaimed from tbe river,
and tbe whole surface was raised four feet by the
debris from the fire.
In April, 1845, 1,000 buildings were destroyed
by fire in Philadelphia, witb a loss of about $6,
000,000: and again, in July, 1850, a fire de
stroyed 350 buildings, with a loss of $3,000,000.
This fire spread over a tract of fifteen acres. It
commenced in a saltpetre warehouse, and, owing
to an explosion that occurred in tbe building Boon
after .the fire started, the firemen could not be
persuaded to go near the building, fearing anoth
er. At the fire 25 persons were killed, 9 drowned,
and 120 wounded. .
FIRE IX CONSTANTINOPLE.
In 1831 Constantinople suffered severely from
a fire, in which 10,000 houses were destroyed,
among which the palaces of nearly all the Am
bassadors, and property estimated at $8,000,000.
The houses here for the most part are built of
wood, the streets are inconceivably narrow, and
disastrous fires, consequently, are of frequent oc
currence. FIRE IN TEDO.
In 1806, a fire in Yedo destroyed a large part
of that city, including the palaces of thirty-seven
princes, and in it some 1,200 lives were lost. In
1854 an earthquake laid the greater part of the
city in ruins, and in the conflagration that fol
lowed, or in the falling buildings, it was estimated
than at least 200,000 people perished. But lit
tle brick or stone' is used in the construction of
buildings there, owing to the frequency of earth
quakes. FIRE IN PORTLAND.
On tbe Fourth of July. 1866, at Portland,
Maine, a firecracker, thrown by a boy during the
celebration of Independence Day, kindled a fire
that destroyed the greater part of the city, and
rendered 10,000 persons homeless. Eight churches,
the banks, hotels, and newspaper oiaces were de
stroyed ; in all, property valued at $15,000,000.
FIRE IN CHARLESTON.
In April, 1838, 1,158 buildings in Charleston,
S. C, covering 145 acres of ground, were de
stroyed, and in February, 1865, the city was al
most entirely destroyed, together with great
quantities of army and naval stores.
In May, 1845, in Quebec, Canada, 1,500 build
ings, many lives and an immense amount of prop
erty, and in June, less than a month after, 1,300
dwellings, in all two-thirds of the city, was de
In July, 1852, 1,200 buildings, valued at $3,
000,000. were destroyed by fire at Montreal.
September 9tb, 1848, at Albany, 600 buildings
were destroyed, besides steamboats, piers, etc.
Twenty-four acres were burned over. Loss,
about $3,000,000. .
The fire in Pittsburg, in 1845. April 10th, de
stroyed 1,000 buildings ; loss, about $6,000,000.
In San Francisco, May 3d, 1851, 2,500 build
ings were burnt and many lives lost. Loss, $3,
500,000. Again in June, 1851. 500 buildings
were destroyed, valued at about $3,000,000.
In London, in June, 1861, Colton's wharf and
depot, and other wharves in Tooley street, con
taining oil and other combustibles took fire and
continued burning for a month, and several per
sons were killed. Loss estimated at $10,000,000.
Alphonse Karr's Latest Witticism.
Alphonee Karr contributes the following to tbe
Univers llluslre. It is supposed to be a dialogue
between a group of heroes- dwellers in Pluto's
dark domain who have just heard a recital of
the French war from a defunct soldier of Gaui
Leonidas " Why, with those new arms the
Persians would not have taken five minutes to get
rid of me and my three hundred heroes."
Hercules 44 1 should like to know what good
my strength would be in dealing with people who
would never come within a thousand yards of my
Samson " And what a pretty figure I should
cut with my donkey's jaw bone.".
Lord Charles Hay 44 When at Fentenoy, I
took off my hat, and said, 'Fire, gentlemen of the
French Guard.' "
Count d'Hauteroche 44 And then I answered,
returning your salutation, 'Fire, gentlemen of the
English army, we never fire the first. "
Lord Charles Hay 44 There's an end to all such
chivalrous usages. Tbey fire now at such a dis
tance as to render the voices of the combatants
inaudible to each other. Why, with the new sys
tem of artillery, we cannot discern with the eye
the uniforms of the troops whose guns decimate
Conde I don't see now bow it would be pos
sible to throw my truncheon into the ditcb, and
charge for it.'
Horatius Codes 44 Alas ! the heroic time is
past when a single man could defend a bridge
against four men. The Curatii would have made

Cambronne 44 Yes ; and my dialogue with the
English guardsman ! What mortal could hear a

The Court Circular relates the following anec
dote respecting a noble lady, who 44 is young,
beautiful, and good:" During tbe Army bill
debate her noble husband, who is proud and
fond of her as he should be, was just about to
rise and deliver a violent attack upon something
or somebody, when a telegram was put' into his
hands. He read it, turned pale, and quitted the
House ; called a cab, drove to the Charing-cross
Station, and went to Dover, and was no more
heard of until the next day, when he returned to
his home, and to bis inquiry was told the Coun
tess was in ber own room. He hastened to her,
and a terrific row ensued, the exact words of
which no one knows but themselves. . At last,
however, he buret out : 44 Then, what did you
mean by your telegram ?" 44 Mean ! what I said,
or course. What are you talking about ? 44 Read
it for yourself." returned tbe still unappeased
husband. She did read it 44 1 flee with Mr.
to Dover straight. Pray lor me. ' For a moment
6he was startled, but then burst into a hearty fit
ol laughter. 44 Most dreadful telegraph people.
No wonder you are out of your mind. I tele- i
graphed simply, 4 1 tea with Mrs. -on Dover
street. Stay for me.' " Hia lordship was ao
aavage at the laugh he had raised against himself,
that he was at first inclined to make a, parlia
mentary question of it, but, listening to more ju
dicious advice, refrained. , .
People Who Should not Smoke
In an article on the medical aspect of smoking
tobacco, in the Food Journal, Dr. E. B. Oray
"la smoking injurious?" This is an every
day question apt to be put by patients to their
doctors. Like most broad questions of tne kind,
it involves far too many considerations to admit
of being answered by a plain yes or no. A
medical man, who baa long been a moderate
smoker and watched the effect of tbe habit on
himself and others, here offers what he believes
to be tbe true answer to the question.
First of all, there must be an understanding
about the quality of the tobacco to be smoked.
Bad namely, rank, quickly intoxicating, and
prostrating tobacco (certain kinds of shag and
cavendish, for instance) must always be injurious.
Few can smoke them at all none, habitually at
least with impunity. So too with regard to
quantity, even good tobacco smoked to excess will
to a certainty be injurious to the smoker, sooner
or later, in some wav or other. Of the various
evil effects of excessive smoking, more will be
Next, as to the smokers. There are people to
whom any tobacco, however 6moked, is simply
poison, causing, even in small doses, vomiting,
pallor, and alarming prostration. Such people
never get seasoned to its effects, even after re
peated trials; and if they are wise, they will
forever let it alone. They will display still
further wisdom by not presuming to make lawa
for others who have not the same idiosyncrasy.
No one can enjoy Btnoking, or smoke with im
punity, when out of health. The phrase 44 out
of health," though it may sound vague, is defi
nite enough to frame a general rule. At the
same time, it is useful to know what, if any, are
the particular disorders and conditions of health
in which tobacco does special barm. As far as
the writer's knowledge goes, these have never
been specified by medical writers as clearly as is
To begin, a man with a bad appetite will, if
he smoke, most assuredly eat still less--a note
worthy fact-for smokers or others recovering from
wasting illness or 44 oft" their feed " from whatever
cause. This effect of tobacco, by the way, while
an evil to the sick man who cannot eat enough,
becomes a boon to the starved man who cannot
get enough to eat ; and ample illustration of this
was furnished among the French and German
soldiers in the recent war. Again no man Bhould
smoke who has a dirty tongue, a bad taste in his
mouth, or a weak or disordered digestion.' In
any Buch case, he cannot relish bis tobacco. It
should be a golden rule with smokers, that the
pipe or cigar which is not BnioKea witn reusn
had better not be smoked at all. Indigestion in
every shape is aggravated by smoking, but most
especially that form of it commonly known as
atonio and accompanied with flatulence. Diar
rhoea, as a rule, is made worse by smoking
One of the commonest and earliest effects of
excessive or untimely smoking is to make the
hand shake. . This gives the clue to another class
of persona who ought not to smoke persons,
namelv. who have weak unsteady nerves, and
suffer from giddiness, confusion of sight, tremu
lous hands, tendency to stammer, or any sucb
svmntoms. And if tobacco does barm in mere
functional weakness, still less allowable is it in
actual organic disease of the system : as, for
instances, where there exists any degree of paraly
sis or other sign of degenerative change in the
brain or SDinal cord. The improper use of
tobacco does beyond question somehow interfere
wiLh due nutrition of nerve substance. An illus
tration of this, familiar to occulists and medical
men. is the bo called tobacco amaurosis, a failure
of vision occurring in excessive smokers from
mal-nutrition of the retina. Another class of
persons who ousht not to smoke are those who
have weak or unsteady circulations and complain
of such troubles as palpitation, cardiac pain,
intermittent pulse, habitually cold hands and
feet, or chrome languor.
Lastly, there is reason for believing that the
habitual use of tobacco is likely to retard the
due growth and development of the body. If so,
no one should become a smoker till he ia well
East the period of puberty. Boys, moreover,
ave no excuse for smoking, for they are spared
the hard wear and tear of adult life.
Now, after eliminating those who from idio
syncrasy cannot, and those who from bodily
ailment or from tender years should not smoke,
there will still always be a large residuum of
happy folk who can smoke, enjoy smoking, and
are indeed the better for it. These are they who
use tobacco without abusing it use it, that is
to say, in moderate quantity, in due season, and
honestly for the sake of the comfort which it
gives them a comfort every bit as legitimate as
that which drinkers of tea, coffee, or wine ex
tract in each case from their favorite beverage.
Montgomery's Suicide. Tbe Boston correspon
dent of tbe Sacramento Union, speaking of tbe
suicide of Walter Montgomery, says : There have
been many rumors afloat as to the cause of his rash
act, but none of them have told the exact truth.
A few years ago there served as a waitress in a
restaurant in this city a young girl of extraordi
nary personal attractions. Of course she was an
object of interest to many of the opposite sex. and
one gentleman of wealth and good social positron
fell desperately in love with her. He made known
bis - passion, and won her promise to be his wife.
But before she should assume that character, be
thought she ought to receive a little education and
social polish. . So he sent her to a good school for
a time, and finally married ber. But tbe match
didu't prove a happy one j her sudden elevation
was too much for tbe poor girl's head. Even horses
and carriages and unlimited pocket-money could
not compensate ber for tbe abridgment ot her per
sonal liberty. They quarreled, and at last separa
ted the wifft receiving a liberal allowance from
ber still loving husband. She went to Europe,
where she has led a life of splendor. Montgomery
met her, was infatuated with ber beauty, and mar
ried her. Tbe day after the wedding 6he told him
that her first husband was still living, and tbe shock
overturned bis reason. Sucb is the most reliable
account of this strange event. The husband of tbe
ex-waitress is still living here, I believe.
A writer in a Virginia paper tells a pleasantly
characteristic story of John Randolph. Mr.
Randolph was engaged to Miss , a very beau
tiful young Virginian, who lived near the Ran
dolph place. One day tbe lover was seen to quit
the lady's residence in what might be described
as a 44 state of mind." It turned out that the
father of the lady had proposed that Mr. Ran
dolph should settle a sum of money upon the
bride, whereupon tbe spirited lover remarked :.
44 It is not my purpose to purchase. When 1 de
sire to purchase, 1 shall go to the cheapest mark
et I shall go to Africa."
