IN WINTER QUARTERS.
U. S S. Potrol. ond H M S. firebrand
Half Buried in Mud.
Tho United States steamship Pot
rol is at Nowehwang, China, where
sho arrived on tho 7th of November,
after a week's cold, disagreeable pa
sago from Nagasaki, stopping ono
day at Chefoo, on roulo. Siuco hor
arrival there, the crow liavo been
very busy preparing for a long win
ter at that place. All stores havo
been sent on Mioro and placed in
warehouse, sail?, running rigging,
etc , yards and matts liavo been sent
down and the ship stripped to a
girtliug, just tho same as if she wns
about to be put out f cotninissiou
and going into rotten row at Mnto
Island Navy yard.
Two lighting top havo been con
structed, one on the foro and tho
other on tho mizzoti top.. Hotch
kiss 37 militnetor revolving cannon
will be sent aloft forward aud a Oat
ling gun aft, tlio.'o to be used in case
of mob violence in the town or any
interference with the European in
habitants who reside along the
bank near whom the Petrol is to
bo beached. Tho English ship
Firebrand is aho thero aud is
already in her mud dock, high
aud dry, stripped tho saino as the
Petrel, and is ljitig next to hor.
Uotii of the ships am lying thero to
bo buried up in ice and suow until
soring shall come again aud release
tliem from their ico bondage. Tho
docks aro a uovelly, a many on tho
Petrel never saw anything like them
before, and thoy never expect to
again, aud thoy aro well worthy of
mention for tho information of those
at Maro Maud in tliu habit of see
ing the great stono drydock at that
place, in which a cruiser may so
easily lie lloatud in aud settled down
on tho blocks after tho water is
pumped out. Tho dock was dug
out by an army of Ch'namon, pre
cisely the same as a drydock boforo
tJiey are walled up. A thin layer of
earth or caisson is left at tho en
trance to prevent tho water coming
in, and after tho proper depth is
obtained on tho iuido this earth in
front is dug down n far as thoy can
go at low water, then when all is
ready at tho next high tide, a full
head of steam is put ou tho engines
and ahead they go at full speed,
runniug through the mud until tho
ship is fairly through. Shores aro
then put up to keep tho ship on an
ovon keel, tho saino as in a drydock,
tho ship resting on tho bottom. A
soon as sccurod tho entrance is
filled in with mud aud brush, tho
water is then pumped out by
handybilljs and tho ship is thou
high and dry. Mats aro then
placed arouud tho ship, earth tilled
m around hor nearly as high ,
as tho berth dock air ports, tho ship
housed in with bamboo poles aud
mat?, and by this means inado as
comfortable as possiblo in a cli
mate whom tho communication with
tho outcido world is completely cut
off for live months in tho year.
The river, completely frozen ovor
with ico four foot deep and tho thor
moinuter raugiug from 10 to 20 de
grees below zoro. Tho Potrol arriv- .
ed Nowehwang on tho 10th of Nov- '
ember with about 150 tons of coal
on board, aud 250 tons mom woro
to bo put on board in a day or two
for heating ship. All tho l)ats had
buon taken ou shore aud covered
with mats and buried in sand to
keep tho frost out. Tho captain has
given a free gangway to all hands
fromaftor-quartors in tho morning
until 10 p. m., aud as long as tho
men keep it tho privilego will exist
aud it will not bo broken, for tho ,
mason that tho captain and all tho
officers aro well likod, and allow I
ovory privilege possiblo. Thoy havo
au iceboat, fully equipped, and
skates, 50 that for all those on board I
tho Potrol thoro is plenty of sport
ahead during tho long winter j
months. Tho ollicors on all tho

Not tho National Anthem.
I crave nermissiou to point out, in
regard to tho beautiful poem pub
lished iu this evening's Bulletin,
that you am sltehtly at fault in
designating tho same as tho Swedish
Notional Anthem, which latter dif
fers from it materially in that it
treats of tho valorous exploits of
Charlo XII , tho young soldior kiug
Tho "laud of lhouand lakos," of
which Ruueberg sings, doos not re-
for to Sweden at all, but to Finland,
in which country ho lived and died,
although tho song which hasi been
sot to a biiporb air is familiar to
ovory Scandinavian, bo ho Swede, i
Norwegian or Dane. Tho error, if
yours at all, is a natural aud excusa- ,
bio one, as tho original vorses woro
written in tho Swedish tongue, which
is mostly in voguo among tho cul
tured classes of Finland. Tho author
became famous chiolly through tho
publication of a splendid series of
poems about tho war of indepen
dence in 1808, which ended by tho
cession iu the year following of tho ,
whole of Finland to Russia. '
Tho predominating trait in tho
Finnish character boiug an iutouso
patriotism a fact aptly illustrated
by tho poem under notice had bo
come so patent to tho conquerors '
that tho Emperor Alexander 1. wise
ly issued a manifesto undertaking to
preserve tho religion, laws and liber
ties of tho vanquished pooplo, who
had offered such gallant resistance.
This pledge has been taken by his
successors, and probably Fiulaud is
to-day tho freest aud bost-govornod
part of the Russian empire.

Valuo of Ball Soaring.
An experiment with ball bearings
was roceutly mado in Canada. A
ptroot car lilted with ball bearings
was drawn a distance of several
hundred foot by men pulling on
on three strands of ordinary sowing
throad.- A carriage manufacturer
put another stylo'of ball boarings ou
the axles of a coach ordinarily pull
ed by four horses. A trained dog
was hitched to tho polo, aud ho
drow tho coach around tho yard 1
with littlo effort. Tho combination
of pneumatic tires aud ball bearings I
would evidently relievo much of tho I
strain now put ou hones drawiug '
hoavy vehicles, aud hero is a lip for ,
an enterprising carriago builder. '
