The people who go out of town to spend Thanks?

and. after doing the little work that ls always
done on the day preceding a holiday, went to trains
and steamboats and were soon travelling towards
the towns and cities where Thanksgiving Day ls
still observed in the orthodox way. After 12
o'clock yesterday every street leading to a rail?
way station or a steamboat landing was
filled with hurrying people, all anxious to

Thanksgiving Day as th-lr fathers did. they
should have gone to some of the different points

the outflow- of people was not as large vesterdnv

AMERICAN SHIPPING INTERESTS.

Wt liinKton, Nov. Sk?Tba annual report of the
Commlaaloner of Navigation, B. C. O'Brien, which
proved to be bbl valedictory, shows that the ton*

4,76u,SSI In ly.'i to kWAJttl in ISM. There was a. de
crease te salUag tonnage, but an lacrosse in tenn
tonnage. American teenage engsged la domestic
commerce, which ll absolutely protected against
foreign competition, showed a gratifying increase.
Oa tl.tier hand, American totmai;.' engsged in
.mr for. len commerce, which ls exposed to the free
competition of foreign nations, exhibited s consid?
erable decrease. The tonnage of both American and
foreign esses ls entered at our own ports .?-?hows a
decr.-ase as a result of th" K?n. rai depression of
trade. Th.* Shipping Interests of the great lakes
have prospered greatly durlag tba lar*' sis yean*.
The tonnsge which passed through the introit
Uiver during the year 1MB amounted to "Jt.***---? ?*?"?
tons, wii.-r.as th.- tonnage which paned through
the Bues Canal during tbe sam.- year amounted to
only 7,7i-.ir_- tons. The Lake Superior tonnage

CAPT. HIGGINSON RESTORED TO DUTY.
TO TAKE OOMMAKD OF TUE BOSTON-END OP
Till-'. ATLANTA EPISODE.
Washington. Nov. 29.? Secretary Herbert provided
a happy Thanksgiving for two naval officers by
Ismtng orders to-day directing Captain 9, M. Hig?
ginson nnd Captain .lohn lt. Bartlett to hold them?
selves In readiness to command the cruisers Boston
and Atlanta respectively. Last May while tho
Atlanta was In New-York as a participant In the
naval review ceremonies Secretary Herbert
Ordered him te pro..1 with the vessel to Nicara?
gua to protect American Interests In the course
of the revolution which had broken out In that
country. Captain Higginson did not start quickly
enough to suit the Department, and when bs was
directed to hurry his preparations for departure
ha endeavored to hav.* th" vessels delayed until
her boilers could be repaired. This request was
denied, bul Captain Higginson telegraphed the
Chief of the Bureau of Steam Knglneetlng asking
him to see that the Atlanta was not compelled to
start for Nicaragua until n.-w boilers could be
provided. This attempt to interfere with the
order- of the Secretary through a subordinate
other was considered disrespectful to the Depart*
merit, and Secretary Herbert peremptorily ordered
Captain Higginson detached from duty nnd In?
structed Captain Bartlett to relieve him. Captain
Higginson, however, had sailed In the Atlanta
from N'.-w-York before the order of detachment
reached him, and h.* did not know of bis relief
until In* r.ach.l a Nicaraguan port.
Captain Bartlett's connection with the Atlanta
sensations wa* i.f another character. It was willie
h.- was in cominan.1 of that v>-ss"l that a court of
lnijulrv discovered that she was In a dilapidated
condition, resulting from neglect to her machinery
and a general disregard for the observance of
regulations tor keeping her in r-pair. Th" court
Of Inquiry mule a report to Secretary Herbert,
throwing th.- blame on a nttmler of officer- of
rh,, v.ssei hut not naming Captain Bartlett as on>*
of them. Although Captain Bartlett was detached
from the command of the Atlanta, lt was consid?
ered that his part in the matter was v.-ry slight
and his detachment from command of the vessel
was not looked upon in the light of a severe con?
demnation of bis course.
