THE VERMONT If AJLiMER : FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1877.
THE GREAT SEA. SEEPENT.
A WtW TTOSbMI STORY 111 UANS CIIHISTIAN AN
Thoro waa a littlo fish asilt-wator fish
of good family : I don't recall tho name
jou will liavo to get that from tho learned
people. This littlo fish had eighteen hun
dred brothora and Bisters nil just as old as
he; .boy did not know tholr father and
mothor, and were obliged to look out for
themselves at tho very beginning, and swim
round, but that was great sport. Thoy had
water enough to drink, tho cnllro ocean ;
they thought nothing about their food, it camo
when thoy wanted it. Kaoh did as it ploased,
each was to mako out its own story ay,
rather nono of thcra thought at all about that.
The sun shone down on tho water that was
light about them, so clear it was. It was a
world with tho strangest creatures, and somo
very horrid and big with great gaping mouths
that oould gulp down all tho eighteen hun
dred brothers and Bisters, but neither did they
think of that, for none of them as yet had
been swallowed. The small ones swam sido
by sido closo together, as herrings and mack
erel swim. Hut as they woro swimming their
prettiest in tho water and thinking of noth
ing, thcro sank with prodigious neisc, from
above, right down through them, n long heavy
thing that looked as if it never would como
to an end ; it strotched out farther and far
ther, and every one or the littlo Gshcs that
Bcampcrcd off was cither crushed or got a
crack that it could not stand. All tho littlo
fishes and tho great ones with them, from tho
level of tho sea to tho bottom, wero thrown
into a panic. The great horrid thing sank
deeper and deeper, and grew longer and long
er, miles and miles long. Tho fishen and
Bnails, everything that swims, or creeps, or
is driven by tho current, saw this fearful
thing, this enormous incomprehensible sea
eel which had coino down upon them in this
What was tho thiug anyway? ah, wo
know; it was the great interminable telegraph
cablo that pcoplo wcro laying between Eu
ropo and America.
Thcro was a confusiou and commotion
amongst all tho rightful occupants of tho sea
where tho cablo was laid. Tho flying fishes
shot up abovo the surface as high as they
could fling themselves ; tho blow-full took a
leap an cntiro gunshot in length over tho
water, for it can do that ; tho other fish made
for the bottom of tho sea, and went down
with such hasto that they reached it long be
fore tho telegraph was seen or known about
down thcro ; they poured in on tho cod and
floundors that lived peaceably at tho bottom
of tbo sea and ato their neighbors. Ono or
two of tho sea-anemones were so agitated that
they throw up their stomachs, but they lived
after it just the same, for they can do that
A good many lobsters and crabs got out of
their excellent shells, and were obliged to
wait for their bones to grow back again.
In all this fright and confusion, tho oigh
teen hundred brethren and sisters becamo
separated, and never again met, or ever know
each other after that ; only somo ten of them
remained still in tho same place, and fso in a
few hours they got over tho first fright an
began to bo curious about tho affair. They
looked about them, they looked up and they
looked down, and don o in the depths they
fancied they saw the fearful thing tint had
eca.-ed them yes, had scared all, greatand
small, lying on tlio bottom of the sea, as far
as their eyes could rcaoh ; it was quite thiu
but tbey did not know how thick it might be
able to roako itself, or how strong it was ; it
lay very quiet, but then that might bo a part
of its cunning they thought.
"Let it Ho ; it docs not como near us !
said tho most cautious of the littlo fulics ; but
the smallest ono of all would not give up
trying to find out what tho thing could bo
It had como down from above, so it was np
above that ono could best find out about it
So thoy swam up to tho surface. It was per
fectly still. They met a dolphin there. Th
dolphin is a sprightly fellow that can turn
somersaults on tho water, and it has eyes to
see with so it must have seen this and known
all obout it. They asked him, but ho had
only been thinking about himself and his
somcmaults he'd seen nothing, had no answer
for them, and only looked high and mighty
Then they turned to tho seal, which was
just plunging in ; it was more civil, for all
that it eats small fiih ; but to-day it had had
enough. It knew littlo mero than tbo dol
"Many a night have I lain upon a wet
stono and lookod far into the country, miles
away from hero ; thcro are crafty creatures
called in their speech men-folk. They plot
against us, but usually wo slip away from
them ; that I know well, and sca-ccl too
that you are asking about, ho knows it.
has been under their sway up thcro on tbo
earth, time out of mind, and it was from thcro
that they were carrying him off on a ship to
a distant land. I aw what a troublo thoy
had, but they could manago him, becauso ho
had beeomo weak on tho earth. They laid
him in coils and circles. 1 hoard how he
ringled and ranyled when thoy laid him
down and when ho slipped away from them
out here. They held on to him with all
their might over o many hands had hold
of him, but ho kept slipping away from them
down to tho bottom ; thcro ho U lying now
till further notico, I rather think."
"Ho is quite thin," said tbo small fishes.
"They havo starved him," said tho seal,
"but ho will soon como to himself, and get
his old Bin and corpulcnco again. I supposo
ho is tho great sea-serpent that men aro so
afraid of and talk so much about. I never saw
him before, and never believed in a sea-serpent
; -now I do. I bclievo ho is tho sea
serpent," and with that down went tho seal.
"How much ho knew ! how ho talkod !"
said tho email fishes ; "I never was so wiso
before ; if it only isn't all an untruth."
"Wo can anyway, swim down and sco for
ourselves," said tho littlest fish ; on tho way
we can hear what tho others think about it."
"I wouldn't make a Btroko with my fins to
get at something to know," said tho others,
and turned away,
"Hut I would 1" said tho littlest fellow,
and put off down into dcop water ; but it was
a good distance from tho place where "tho
long thing that sank" lay. Tho littlo fish
looked and bunted on all sides down in tho
deep water. Never tcfoi had it imagined
the world to bo so big. Tne herrings went
in great shoals, shining liko a mighty ribbon
of silver; tho mackerel followed after, and
looked even finer. Thcro wcro fishes thcro
of all faihlou9 and marked with every possi
ble color; jelly-fish, liko half-transparent
flowers, homo along by the ourronls. Groat
plants grow up from tho floor of tho ocean ;
grass, fathoms' long, and palm-llko trees, ov
cry leaf tcnantod by shining shell-fish.
At last tho littlo fish spied a long dark
streak away down, and made his way toward
it, but it was neither fish nor oable ; It was
tho gunwale of a sunken vessel, which abovo
and bolow tho deck was broken In two by tho
force of tho sea. Tho littlo fish swam into
tho cabin, wbcro tho pcoplo who perished
when tho vessel sank wcro all washed away,
ozcept two ; a young woman lay thoro
stretched out, with her littlo ohild in her arms.
Thoy seemed to bo sleeping. Tho littlo fish
was quito frightened, for it did not know
that they never again could waken. Sea
weed hung liko a net-work of foliage over
the gunwalo nbovo tho two beautiful bodies
of mother and babe. It was so quiet, so
solitary ; tho littto fish scampered away as
fast as it could, out where tho water was
bright and clear, and thoro wcro fishes to sec.
It had not gone far boforo It met n whale,
"Don't swallow mo I" cried tho littlo fish ;
"I am not oven to bo tasted, I am so small,
and it is a great comfort to mo to live."
"What aro you doing away down here,
where your kind never como 7" abked tho
So then tho littlo fish told about tho ns-
touishiogly long eel, or whatevor tho thing
was, that had sunk down from abovo and
produced such a panic amongst all tho othor
creatures in tho sea.
'Ho, ho !" said tho whale, and ho drew in
such n rush of water that ho was ready to
mako a prodigious spout wheu ho camo to
tho surfaco for a' breath. "Ho, ho ! so that
was the thing that tickled mo on tho back
when I was turning round. I thought it was
a ship's mast, that I could break up Into
clothes-pins. But it was not hero that it
was ; no, a good deal farther out lies the
thing. I'll go with you and look for It, for
I havo nothing else to do;" and so it swam
off, and tho littlo fish behind it, not too ncary
becauso thcro was a tearing stream, as it
were, in tho wake of the whalo.
They met a shark and an old saw-fish ;
they, too, had heard of tho famous sca-ccl, so
long aud so thin ; thoy had not seen it, but
now they would.
"I'll go with you," said tho shark, who
was uu tho samo road ; "if the great sea-ser
pent is no thicker than a cablo, then I can
bito through it in ouo bite," and ho opened
his mouth and showed his six rows of teeth
"I can bito dents in a ship's anchor, and
certainly can bite off thcshank."
"Thero it is !" said tho great whalo ; "I
sco him." Ho thought ho saw better than
the others. "Sec how it rises, how it bends
and bow3 and curves !"
Hut it was not tho sea-serpent, but an ex
traordiuarily great eel, over so many ells
long, that drew near.
"Why, I have seen him before !" said tho
saw-fish. "He never has made a hullabaloo
in the sea or frightcnod any big fish out of
his wits." And so they talked to him of tho
new eel, and asked him if he would go with
them or their voyage of discovery.
"If that col is longer than I am," said the
tea-eel, "thero will bo somthing disagrecablo
"Ay, that thcro will," eaid tho others,
"there aro enough ot ns not to tolerate him !''
and ro tlioj tliot aiioad, IJiK then there
camo right in their way a groat monster, big
ger than all of them put togethor ; it looked
like a floating island, that could not stop it
iolf. It was a vencrahlo whalo. Its head
was grown over with sea-weed, its back cov
ered with barnacles, and suah innumerable
oysters and mussels, that its black skin was
"Como with us, old follow !" said thoy.
"Hero is a now flab, come and wo won't stand
"I would rather lio whero 1 am lying,1
said tho whale. "Leavo mo alono ; leave
me alono. 0 ah, O ah ! 1 suffer from
dreadful disease ! My only relief is to get
up toward the surfaco and get my back up
higher ; then tho great sca-fuwl can como
and pick at me. That fools eo good ! only
when they do not drive their beaks in too
far; sometimes they go in too deep, quito
into my blubber. You can Beo now how
complete skeleton of a fowl is fixed in my
back ; she struck her claws in too (loop, and
could not get them ont when I went down to
tho bottom. And how tho littlo fishes have
picked at her. See how sho looks, and how
I look. I am all diseased !"
"That is all imagination !" said tho shark
"I am never sick. No fish is ever siok."
"Pardou me," said tho whale. "Tho eel
suffers from headache, tho carp has tho small
pox, and wo all havo iutcxtinal worms."
"Nonsense I" said tho shark, and refused
to hear any furthor, and the others would also
rather not ; they had something clao to at
At last thoy camo to tho placo whero tho
telegraph cablo lay. It hai a pretty long
bed on tho floor of tho fca from Kuropo to
America, oyer sand-banks and eca-mud,
rocky ground and weedy placoji, eotiro forests
of coral. Tho currents down thoro, too,
ohango, whirlpools eddy, and tubes swarm in
greater masses than the countless flocks of
birds that men sco when birds of passage
tako their flight. Thcro is a stir, a splash'
thero, n humming and rushing still haunts a
littlo the great empty conch-shells when wo
hold them to our cars.
"Thcro lies tho fellow !" cried all tho great
Gihcs and tho littlo ono with them. Thoy
saw tho cable, tl.tt begiuning and end of which
vanished beyond tho reach of their eyes.
Sponges and polyps swayed from the grouud,
roso and foil over it, so that now it was hid
den, now camo ta view, Sea-porcupines,
snails, and worms moved over it. Uigantio
crabs, that had a complete fringo of creeping
things, stalked about it. Hark sea-anemones,
or whatever tho crcaturo is called that cats
with its cntiro body, lay besido it and smcllcd
of tho new creature that had Mrctchcd it
self on tho bottom of tho sea, Flounders anJ
codfish turned over in tho water so as to got
an idea about it from all sides, Tho star
fish that always bores down into tho mud and
can keep its eyes outside, aud lay and stared
to sco what was to como of nil this bustle.
Tho telegraph cablo lay without etirriog,
but life and thought were in it. Human
thought went through it. "Tho thing Is
crafty," said tho whalo ; "It is ablo to striko
mo in the stomach, and that is my weak
"hot us gropo along," said tho polyp3, "I
havo long arms and limber fingers ; I havo
been moving by tho side of it ; now I'll go a
littlo faster," and so it stretched its most
flcxlblo, longest arms down to tho cable and
round about it, "It has no scales 1" said
tho polyps ; "it has no skin at all. I do bo
Hcvo it never feeds itg own young."
Tho sea-col laid itself by tha sido ol tho
telegraph cable and utretchcd out as far as It
could, "Tho thing is longer than I am," it
said ; "but it is not loogth thatdoes anythlug;
ono must bavo skin, stomach, and flexibility."
Tho whalo dovo down doeper than it over
had been. "Art thou fish or art thou plant?"
it asked, "or art thou only somo picco of
work mado up above that cannot thrive down
hero amongst us ?"
The telegraph cable did not answer ; it has
no power for that. Y et thoughts go through
it, men's thoughts, that rush in ono second
mites upon miles from land to land.
"Will you answer, or will you tako a
crack ?" asked tho fierco shark, and all tho
other great fishes asked tho samo thing.
Tho cablo did not stir, but it had its pri
vate thought, and such a ono it had a right
to havo when it was full of thoughts. "Lot
them only givo mo a crack 1 then I shall bo
hauled up and be myself again; that has
happened to others ol my raco in shallower
waters." So it gavo no answer ; it had
something else to attend to ; It telegraphed
and lay in its lawful placo at tho bottom of
Up abovo, tho sun now went down, as
mcu say, it becamo liko (laming tiro, and
all tho ulouds glowed with fiery color, each
moro splendid than tho other. "Now wo
shall get tho red light," said tho polyps,
"and can seo tho thing bettor, if need bo."
"At it ! at it I" shouted tho shark. "At
it ! at it !" said the sword-fish and tho whalo
and tha cel. They rushed forward, tho
Bhark foremost. Hut just as it was about to
grip tho wire, tho sword-fMi out of puro po
liteness, ran his saw right into tho back of
tho shark. It was a great mistake, and tho
thark lost all his strength for biting. Thcro
was a hubbub down In tho mud. Great
fishes and small, eoa-ancmoncs and snails
rushed at ono another, ato each other, mashed
and squeezed in. Tha cablo lay quietly and
attended to its affairs, and that one ought to
Tho dark night brooded over them, but
tho ocean's millions upon millions of living
creatures lighted it ; craw-fish, not so big as
a piu-hcad, gtvo light. It certainly is won
derful, but that's tho way it is.
Thcso sea creatures looked at tho tele
graph wire. "What is that thing?" thoy
asked, "and what isn't it?" Ay, that was
Then thcro camo an old sea-cow. Folks
on tho earth call its kind a mermaid, or clso
a merman. This was a she, had a tail and
two bhort arms to splash with.hanging breasts,
and sca-wced and Bpongcs on bcr head, and
that was what sho was proud of.
"Will you have tho society of iutolligent
people ?" said she. "I'm tho only ono down
hero that can givo it. Hut I ask in return
for it perfectly sccuro pasturage on tho bot
tom of the sea for mc and mine. I am a
fith, as you see, and I am also an amphibious
animal with practice. I am tho wisest
cow in tho sea. I koow about everything
that goes on down here, and all that goes on
above. That thing you arc pondering over
is from above, and whatever plumps down
from up thorTis cither dead or comes to. bo
dead and powerless ; lot it lio thoro for what
it is ; it's ouly soma invontion of man."
"Now I think there is something moro to
it," said tho little fish.
"Hold your tongue, mackerel !" said tho
tho great sea-cow.
"Stickleback !" said tho rest, and that
was even more insultiug.
Had tho Eca-cow explained to them that
thh terrible thing, which, to be sure, had not
given out a single mutter, was only soma in
ventiou from the dry land. And it deliver
cd a little oratioo upon tho rottenness of

"That's all they live for. Thoy stretch uots
for us, and come with bait on a hook to catch
us. That thing there is somo kind of big
string which thoy think wo aro going to bite
at. They aro such stupids ! We aro not,
Only do not touch it, and it will shrivel up
aud all turn to dust and mud. Kvcrything
that comes down from up there is full of
cracks and breaks it's good for nothing."
"Good for nothing !" said all the creatures
in tho sea, aud held fast to tho sea-cow's
opinion, so as to havo an opinion. Tho little
fish hail its own thoughts. "That exceedingly
long, thin serpent is perhaps tho most won
dcrful fish iu tho ocean. I havo a fcclius
"The very most wonderful," say wo human
folks, and say it with knowloJgo and assur

and nourished and sprang forth from men's
cunning aud was laid upon tho bottom of tho
sea, stretching from tho Eastern to tho, West

flashes to our earth. It grows iu might and

and tho lucid waters, whero the skipper looks

air, and scos tho swarming fish, brilliant fire
