An Old SnIIor'si Tarn,
Salllnc In u Coaster A Schooner Cnptaln In (he
" 1 nevpr srasn't much into ' fore anrj sfter?.' "
soid my Iriend the old sailur, as 1m handed Ins
mug to tbe boy to be refilled, but I bad one jolly
IImx1 time abour.1 tbe schooner Kruugclino. sshen
1 were a very yootis man. thai 1 never think on
srithoQl eii;hin' that it couldn't a las led always.
You wouldn't think it perhaps, sir. seein' me aa
yon hue, that when I were a young man 1 were
sboal as good alookiu'acbapiuyoa'd cOtiiuioSly
find in a day's wnlk.
Well, we can't always bo young ( jiit fill ttis
up ay in rlease, and 1 tupposu tbiil's wisely DT
dered, as the uirsous say : but still it seerns to
me. now that I'm rrowin' ole an stiff in the
j ints, that it would be a good thing to be etar
unliy youug. and able to go from spanker-boom
end to flying jib-boom end without ever touchiu'
"I've done it my lad, many and many s limn,
though you don't think it. looking at me now.
when I'm old and ballered, and have got to bo
what the Prenrhmeu call ' on bum point,' which
they means a little fleshy.
" Aye, lad ! I've gono from the main tack to
tbe royal yardarm without touchiu' either fool
ioio or ratlin'; up the leeches ol tbe sails my boy
Itke a monkey.
- Couldn't do it now, (jist fill this up again)
couldn't do it now. Too many years, too much
rheumatism, and, well there's yuur health sir, per
haps too much grog, though, for tlie mattar of
that, merit ain't many youngsters nowadays
can do t belli things, They don't build tbem as
good. lad. (thank you, I'll take jiat uuo more;)
they don't put ll.o eauic 6tutf into 'em. In my
time u boy were good Tor somethin'; but thesniv
?lm' puny thing they calls boys now, uin't worth
as modi us a sick monkey onto a lee tmcksluy.
I'e seed boy sir, cry Gt to break their blessed
little hearts, jist cause a man gut ahead of 'em to
loose a royal, or luayuup a lu'gatlah' tatl ; but
them boys is grewed up, and all the present boy
would cry about would be when a man got ahead
of him at the souse kettle or tbe duff kid.
But this hain't neitbor hare nor there-(well,
with you sir, once more) to what I were goin' to
tell you about. 1 ain't sarlain whether it were
the Columbus. Captain Colo, or the Nortli Amer
ica, Captain Lowtier, hat I came liotne in; any
way, it ere a I5!ack baller, and I'd been slipped
tola her as au ordinary, and had beeu paid iff j
wiiii uo cents, unu tuui oiuu i go lur iu u aier
street, eren in thoin bard money times, and
were strollia' dowu to the docks lor to look out
' (or chance.
' 1 don't know what look mo down tothepica
I yuue pier foot ol James and Kossevelt streets :
it wcrn'l curiosity and it weren't business, cause
I hadu'l the least idea of shippin' into 'em, but I
I strolled down without any motive. Some (oiks
! would cull it chance, but Ibul ain't it, sir. Sail
i ors knows belter than that, but then it's cause
: they sees BO much of sicb things. They sees a
I gate of wind ; two chaps will lay cp onto u yard
' lur to pass u pur renter gasket, nnd one will miss
uis bold and go overboard, und t'other won't,
j Sometimes a chap will come down from a topsail
! yard and fall ou souielhiu' soft, a pine hutch scut-
tie, perhaps, and smash it all to pieces, but won't
hurt himself, uud another chap will roll off a water
I cask and break his arm. Sailors sees these things
I and then they knows that every man is reckoned
I up at the start. He gets his departure and is
j liouud aloug jist. sicb a line, und no doubt at ull
! but what when you and I weiu reckoned up we
! was to be sitliqj right here ut this time, and I
I aspects it were put down that you wore to order
these hero mugs Tilled. Its uncommon dry work
talkin' to-day. or else it were the tnack 'ret that
tbe old woman give me for breakfast .
" As I said afore, I were a driftin' down the
dock at the foot of James' slip, and I stopped and
were lookiu' at a very pretty schooner, wheu a
cbup aboard of ber says to me, ' lie you a splicer
young man !'
"'Well,' says I, 'I jist judge I kin put two
ends of a rope together as neat as the next man.'
My splicer,' says he, ' were John Bunker, aud
he staid to home ibis v'yuge cause he's been mar
ried nigh oulu a year ago, and his wife wero els
pectiu' to be took sick. He weren't of much ac-
it's a four
now here's our topptn'-lift gone, anil
stranded rope, and none of us can't do nothin'
with it. Seein' you, made me think as pr'aps
yoa might like for to do a job of tplicin' reasona
ble. C'ooJil you splice a foursu.iudai rope now ?'
There ain't nothin' in the suapo of a rope,'
says I, ' but whnt I kin splice !'
" Well, sir. 1 jumps aboard and gets tbe toppin'
lilt in mi deck, und sits down and pats a suug
long splice into it, uud theu I tells the old man
as bow if be'd git me some marline and a surviu'
mallet, I'd sarve over the splice so us nobody
couldn't tell it had ever been parted. So be done
that, and I wormed and parceled it snug, aud then
! surved it over.
" The old man scorned to be quite tickled with
i!.o j aud says to me, 'Stranger, if you likes
to stupes eplioer with me, III give you 912 a
mouth aud found, 'cause you seems to be a likely
young chap, and I've took a shine to you, and
John Banker may jist stay at home 'tendiu' bis
wife to ull eternity tor all me.'
" Well, jou seo sir, I were lookin' for a job,
and bere it were, so I says, 'Yes,' at onco, and I
goes up nnd gets my dunnoge.
" She belonged to Nantucket, and tbe Cap
tain's name was Kzra Pickham. It were a woo
der, sir, be comin' from Nantucket, should be so
ignorant as not to know bow to splice a rope,
'cause at that lime there was lots of whalers be
longin' to tbe island, and there weren't no busi
ness done which weren't connected with whalin1
some way, and boys went reg'lar from sqhool
aboard ol a ship and never expected for tb do
unylbin' else, and as for a Nantucket gal them
limes bavin' auytbin' to do with a chap afore he
killed bis whale they'd a seen him sugared first.
So, you see, to find a Captain Irom Nuotucketaa
wereu't a sailor man were funny.
" But you see, this old man, in his growin' up,
were kind of soft like, not just right aloft, and so
his parents, seein' that be hudn.t sense etoug.
lor a sailornmn, concluded to make a ' Holy Joe'
out of him, but lie were tsmarter than tuey gin'
bim credit for, and after preacbiu' awbrte he got
spliced to a widder ol bis congregation wmil bad
a little mooey, and bought into this here, schoon
er and run her twixt the island and New York,
fetcbiu' to tl d city oil and candles, codfLk aud
sicb, and carryin' bock all sorts of notious, and
this trade, be said, though not so easy as preacbiu'
paid belter.juiti that waa lite main- thing. . .
"You see, I larncd alt this here arterwar.is.
but al the time I shipped all I knowed were; that
she were a fine lamp of a schooner, and that this
old man were a ignurantcuss as didn't kuow how
to splice a rope.
" I think it wero eoraewbere3 along in August
when I jined this cralt, and I put in, in her, some
of tbe Tory pleasaotest times I've bad aince I
were a goin' to sea. Besides the old man, there
were tbe mate, Joeiali Macy, and. be were tbe sod
of tbe widder by her fast. He weren't no sailor
no more than the old man. but was took and
made a offieer of josl for relation sake, Then,
there were the cook and steward, Abiel Monro,
a old gray-headed darkey, a good cook, but net
much ol a band for riddlin'. Then there was two
boys of the Joe Bowers cd-ir, sons of two ieigh
bors of tbe old mao. These here were all of the
crew, with the exception of a Newfoundland dog
called Bosen, which would pull al a rope as bard
as any of na.
" Ali bands were treated jist alike aboard of
this here craft, and when there was anythin' to do
the old man worked jist tbe same and jist as hard
as any of us. He didn't altogether forgit bis
parson days neither, and waa continually bringia'
in tLings fram tbe Bible into his talk ; leastwise
the mate used to say so, and I aioded boar.queer
it sounded to me the first night I were Aboard,
when all hands was a-goio down to sapper, he
says to me, ' Cotpo, Splicer, sapper's ready ; as it
is written; Oast in tby lot among us.'" He
always had a little somethin' to say afore we
turned to on the grub, and always used to wind up
with, ' For God's sake. Josiah, pas' the bread.'
' You kin jist imagine, sir, bow queer I felt,
bavin' beet used to livio' in a packet ship fore
castle, at comin' into sich a crowd as this ; for
every one of 'em, even to the dog, was as differ
ent from anftkiaTd ever been shipmates with aa
anythin' in this world cauld be. lint I soon got
to likin' tbe old man first rate ; -and afore I'd
been'lwo months along of bim in this here
schooner I pitrhed into a chap on the dock what
were givin' him some lip, and gir him a first-class
whalin'. The old man never interbred till I had
got the chap well pounded, and then be comes
atwixt os and says. ' there. Splicer (be never
called me anythin' else) that M do ; don't hit him
any more ; remember it is written, ' lteproro not
a scorner lest he bate thee.' "
" I don't care, whether he does or not,' says I,
if I hears bim or anybody else a makio' game of
you. sir. 111 knock seven bells on, of 'em.'
Yon see sir. I'd never been shipped tor an
able seaman then, and I'd beeD brant aboard- of
them packets, fast as a boy, where I got more
kicks than coppers, and arlcrwards as a onliuary
seaman, where it was a word and a blow, and the
blow came fust, and this here old man were the
fust officer as had ever treated me like a human,
aud I were jist old enough to lee! it big jist
spooney age, loo old for a boy, and not old enuf
for a man and tho old man had took me up to
his house to Nuntucket, and his old woman, tbe
widder. had slowed me away up in the garret to
sleep jist as if I belonged to the family, and a
darter of the widder's by her lost (I'll truuble
you to have this filled jist ouce mere) hud took
me to church with her. and you see all lbe3e
things telled onto me. and! wouldn t have wnn
led any better fuu than to have licked a chap
every duy for the saku of the old man. He were
to me the funniest old man when I fust went
with bim. I couldn't rtvkou him up nt all. The
first time we lett New York arter I bad shipped
into her, it wero about G o'clock in the evening,
and it were high water iu the ( -am at about 8
o'clock. We hauled down to the end of tho dock
and turned to und got the foresail, mainsail and
maintopgafTsail onto her, -ud theu sprung bei
head off. aud run up her head sails and wure ber
round, 'cause the wind was tibout southwest, with
loweriu' weather. The old man bo took the
wheel, aud mo uud the unite and two boys turued
to aud hauled in the lender und got our halliards
coiled up, and evrrythin' secure about the decks,
and the deck swept down. As I was a awcepio'
aft the old man says to me, ' Splicer, you seem lo
take hold rtght handy, even a child isi knowu by
his doiu's, ever been iu u schooner afore?'
" 1 Never,' says I.
" ' It'll come a little awkward at first,' says he,
' but you'll soou get used to it. All things come
alike lo ail, und I find one can get useJ lo most
"You're woudorin' sir, how I cati remember all
he old man's sayin's, and the reason is that il
wero all uuw to me that il mude an impression.
" We got up to the brothers ubout the turn of
the tide, and the wind all died out, and tho rain
came dowu in one solid sheet. ' Josiah,' says the
old man, ' staud by the anchor. If the clouds be
full of rain they empty themselves. There uever
was anythin' truer than that.' Tbe tide's done;
Josiah ; let her go. and we ull go below and have
a smoke,' and that wero the kind of a man he
were." in the i'eie York World.

The election of Mgr. Dupauloup, Bishop of
Orluaus. to the French Somite, is a nolublu event.
1 ho Dishop is ono of the most distinguished men
of his day, and possesses qualities which are ap
parently much better adapted to the episcopatn
than ihe Sennto Chamber. Iu the first place he
is a current-man above all else ; devoted lo Borne,
and strongly disposed lo wield the cruzier after
tho fashion of a scupler. His private life has
been adorned by all Christian virtues. Ho is
said, indeed, to have furnished Victor Hugo the
model for Bishop Miriel, in " Miserables ;" and
certainly the anecdotes related of bim aro quite
as siugular as any iho great novelist bas bung
upon his lay-figure. Ou one occasion tbe
parishoners of the Bishop, observing that he lived
in a very mean and meager way, aabsenbed the
prico of a very handsome set of furnituro for bis
apartments, but when the Bishop came home and
found the upholsterer arranging the new things, he
made him remove them, and gave tbe money
which had been paid for them lo bis poor. On
another occasion he actually pawned his pastoral
staff to raise money wberewitb to relievo a sick
family. In the performnnco of his ecclesiustical
duties, howover, be stands out for pomp aud
ceremony, holding that tbe Church caunot
make too great a display, and in the various cere
monials, processions, etc., he is a rigid stickler for
ritualistic ceremony and regal magnificence. In
the pulpit be is extremely eloquent, with a Gary
fervor quite bis own, and something of eccentrici
ty. It is said that ho much regretted his lailurn
some years since to be trauslcrrcd lo Paris, Bince
in that case be might have shured with tbe Arch
bishop of Paris the glory of martyrdom at tho
hands of ibe Communards. What qualifications
for legislative work the worthy Bishop possesses,
we do not know, and in Tact the bent of his past
life rather discountenances the probability that
he is the right man in Iho right place. He will,
however, assuredly make bis voice heard there,
and when he speaks il will be with no uncertain
sound ; though whether bo will help or hurt the
party with which be acts ill another question,
much less easy lo answer.
A correspondent writing from Ogolthorpe, Ga.,
gives an interesting story of n meeting of colored
Methodists. Elder Thomas delivered a stiiring
eermuu, and at its close one of the brothers got
ready for shouting. But the minister cried out,
" Hold on, brothers and sisters, don't shout yet 1"
He then ordered all the benches moved to one
corner, which was done. Thou Brother
Dick Smith put on bis hat and marched around
the room. This was the signal, and the brothers
and sisters let loose with a fearful din. " Shout,
children, until the walls fall!" cried one elder.
" Everybody, saint and sinner, shout 1 Miss Su
san Yancey, why ain't you sboulin' lliar? Bro
ther Dick Smith, fire up that unconvarted corner
over dar ! Pat 'em to shoutin !" Then Brother
Smith marched oat of lha church, all tho rest
following. After inarching around three times,
all iboutiog at the tops of their voices, tboy re
entered the church.
An eccentric philanthropist in Plymouth
county devotes much of his spare time and nil his
spare cash to tbe education and training of three
children whom be has adopted. One Sunday af
ternoon the youuger of the bays came iu after an
absence ol the whole day, and was met with tbe
question : " Where have you been ?" "To Sabbath
School, Mr. Wentworth," as we will call the gen
tleman. " Well, what do yon go to Sabbath
School for? What have you learned at theSab
batb School, anyhow ?" " I have learned all
aboat tbe Pilgrims, Mr. Wenlworth." "Oh have
you I Who were the Pilgrims, tbeut" u The
Pilgrims were a body of men who loved tho Lord
and when tho Lord went up they watched him till
he got clean out of sight, and then they came
over to Plymouth."
