WEDNESDAY. APRIL L'O. 1887.
Captniu Thomns O. Hclfrklgc,
United States Navy, lately com
manding the United .States steamer
Omaha of the Asiatic Squadron,
who auived on the last steamer
from Japan, en route to rcpoitto
the Secretary of tliu Navy, on ac
count of the fatal target practice in
Japanese watcis lias a very brilliant
war iceord. lie was acting First
Lieutenant of the Cumbcilnnd cor
vette, when that vessel was sunk in
action by the rebel iionolad Mam
mae, off Newport Nowh, and re
ceived the highest commendation
from the Navy Department for hi
gallant and lieioio conduct in ic
waining below in vitiligo, of tho bat
teries on the main deck until the
water came into tho ports of the
sinking vessel and prevented any
more tiring. He nftcrward again
distinguished himself in command
of a gunboat in the Mississippi
Squadron under Admiial Porter,
and was in active service from the
commencement to the end of the
Civil "War. His family is well
known in California and strongly
repicsentcd in the service. His
father, Admiral Sclfridgc, was for
some years the Commandant of
Mare Island Navy Yard. His
brother, Lieut. J. IJusscl Sclfridge,
on duty on boaul the Adams, third
rate, now belonging to the Pacillc
Squadton, was appointed a mid
shipman from California, and his
bon Georgo S. Sclfiidge is a naval
cadet at Annapolis. Capt. Sclf
ridgc is a native of Massachusetts',
from which State he was appointed
a midshipman in 1851 ; graduating
ilrst in his" class; going thiough the
various grades to his present rank
of Captain. He is consideicd one
of the most accomplished oiliccrs in
His statement with regard to the
target-llring of the Omaha, which
resulted in fatally wounding several
Japanese llshcrmcn, shows that it
was an unfortunate accident and
against which all the usual precau
tions on such occasions had been
taken. At the time of tho requiied
quartet ly practice the Captain found
tho Jnpaneso waters, whore the
vessel was stationed, so ciowdcd
with ilslicrmcn's boats as to make
it dangerous to exercise in thing at
a floating target, so the target was
placed on shoic below a high cliff,
and in the line of which there wns
no settlement, and the fields were
uncultivated. The shells, to those
watching them, appealed all to have
exploded. Some llshcimen, after
the ship had left, dug up live tin
exploded shells that weic buiicdin
tho sand. The dust they raised in
sti iking tho bank caused the belief
that the shells had burst like tho
othcis. Knowing nothing about the
danger, one of the Japanese, in at
tempting to pry off the percussion
cap, exploded one of tho shells,
fatally wounding several of those
of the crowd around them.
Tho fact that the Japanese Gov
ernment had f oi bid target filing
within three miles of the coast was
not known to the olllcets of the
ship, as the infotmation had never
been given by the American Consul,
through whom it should have come
to the squadron. The Japanese
Government, it is understood, icws
jt as an unfortunate accident, for
which, under (he circumstances
there can be no serious blame on
the Captain. As the ciuisc of the
Omaha was within a few months of
cxpitation, it is not likely the Cap
tain will be returned to the com
mand of the ship, but the depatt
meut at Washington will doubtless
lake a very lenient view of the
affair. As on other occasions in
which fatal results have happened
by the thing from American war
vessels in foreign harbors or seas,
tho Ameiiean Government will make
whatever award may bo deemed
proper to the injured or the sin riving-
relatives of the killed. A not
ablo instance of this was the fatal
accident in one of the French poits
many years ago. The United States
frigate Constitution in returning a
salute killed and wounded scvcial
poisons on board a vessel in the
Jiarbor, some of the guns, unknown
$o thoflfllccr filing the salute, being
shotted. TJio injured weic liberally
compensated and tjio l datives of the
deceased pensioned by the American
Government. S. F. Bulletin.
WOMEN KNIGHTS. .
Fiom the Institution of tho Legion
of Honor by the ilrst Napoleon to
the year 1852 only five ladles re
ceived the decoration, and thoy
wpvp nil nuns. A chango was made
in lfifio. The Empiess went to visit
losa IJonheur' jt Fontaineblcau,
and on her return scnl her Jjjo cross
of tho Order. It was thought that
this would bo the commencement of
tjio recognition of tho etninenco of
women in secular departments of
life. But the tdo hinted into its
old channel, and the ;); decora
tions were issued to nuns, Tho
Frauco-PuiHshm "War opened up a
now chapter in tho annals of the
Order. A female telegiaph clerk
and n cuntiiiierc were both docorat
cd for nets of heroism performed at
great risk pf life and icsulting in
in important services to the French
Army. Tho icccnt war with China
has added two moro to the list of
decoiated ladies, both of them nuns,
and both eminent for their services
to the wounded on tho field of bat-
tie. And now onco more tho tide of
distinction seems to have sot in the
direction of at t. The latest cticvu

The Ucv. Mr. Ilngamore, of Cals
hoge, Leicestershire, England, was
a very singular character. He died
January 1st, 177C, possessed of the
following effects viz., L'700 per
annum and 1,000 lit money, which
(lie dying intestate) fell to a ticket
porter in London. lie kept one
servant of each sex, whom he locked
up every night. His last employ
ment of an evening was to go round
his premises, let loose his dogs, and
the his gun. He lost his life as fol
lows: Going one morning to let
out his servants, the dogs fawned
upon him, and threw him into a
pond, where ho was found breast
high. Hy servants heaid him call
for assistance, but, being locked up,
they could not lend him any. He
had .'10 gowns and cassocks, 100
pairs of breeches, 100 pairs of boots,
100 pairs of shoes, 80 wigs, yet al
ways wore his own hair, 58 dogs, 80
wagons and carts, 80 plows (and
used none), 50 saddles and furni
