All this time we were perspiring
through fear of the fierce guardians

when the widow paused, we remark

Yes, poverty is a good thing, para

thing because we look upon it as a
bad thing a good thing, inasmuch as
it is the only thing which will cause
us to exert our faculties and todevel

A Thrillins Scene.
We have conversed with a gentle
man who surrived the wreck of the
Sarah Barnes, and have gathered
from him many items of painfu! inte
rest. Our informaot was in the boat
which left the steamer just before the
waters closed ever her. The mate
inadvertently threw overboard a jvt
enntainins; watr,nd the firtt aighi
out the boat shipped a sen, spoiling
the only bread on board. The twelve
beings in the .little craft were thu
left destitute alone on the deep
with no knowledge of the distance
to the land, and exposed to an awful
dea':h, s:s sharks were seen iu everv
direction, awaiting the wreck of the
boat to seiee their victims. All wa
older and decorum, however. Eve
ry erne felt that nothing but an inter
position of I), vine mercy could tare
those exposed to elemental strife
hut no lip (anveied, no eye gave to
ken of feeiings of doubt and despair.
The twilight of the mind reigned su
As has been stated, Mr. Daggett
advised that the boat should stand
out to sea, and not attempt to pats
the t readers in view, beyond which,
two miles distant, was land. His ad
vice was followed, but the appear
ance of a cloud on the horizon, told
too plainly the upprosch ef one of
those gales that rage with euch fury
on the Gulf. Now came the trying
time. Poor Daggett w as appealed te
by all, and his council had been found
correct in every emergency. He de
clined pointing out any course for
his companions to follow, remarking
thai their doom was sealed!
A hasty consultation was held, end
it was agreed that the boat should at
temp t to pass the breakers! Dag
gett kept his hand on the helm, mere
ly remarking that "it was abeut the
best thing they could do, but that
every one must prepare to meet a
watery grave!'' The reply wis u
natiiinous, "(.lod's will be done," nnd
the prow of the boat was headed to
ward the bieakers! She rode the
fu st, second, and third beautifully, but
was swamped in the fourth. Daggett
tied a handkerchief to the ringbolt,
for the purpose of sustaining himself
but he was not seen again. He sack
