A SONG FOR UOT WEATHER.
Oh, a life on the yacht Jeannette!
A home on the frozen deep!
With the mercury down, you bet,
Where batter has got to keep.
I'm off for the Northern Pole,
By way of old Behring's Strait,
Where the ice-floes gayly roll,
Oh, there I would navigate!
I long for the 80th par
Allel of north latitude;
I'd rather freeze solid thar
Than stay at home and be stewed.
I long to investigate
On an oDen Polar sea,.
And practically demonstrate
That such a thing there lie.
But the summit of my ambish,l.
And what I have longed for most,
Is a seal and walrus dish,
And a Polar bear on toast.
Then hand rae my garments gay,
For the wind is a trifle raw;
Ah, what is so nice, I pray,
- As the garb'of an Esquimau?
vii, a life on the.yatch Jeannette!
A home on the frozen deep!
With the mercury down* yon bet,
Where batter has got to -keep!

Stewart, ~with T uage Hilton
through ex-Poitmaster Patrjk H
Jones, of New. York city, have al
last found their way into the news
papers, The plate and ornampntE
from the coffin were returned, sc
as to leave no doubt of the Lody'E
being in the possession of Ro

was found to fit exactly the place
in tle cover .of. tIhe coffin from
wich a piece of velvet had been
takenf. Failing .to induce Ju~dge
Hilton .to accede to their terms,
the robbers next urged IMr. Jones
to bring the matter directly to the
attention.of MIrs.Ste.wart,. Tbhe
correspondence opens with the
letter received by the latter from
Henry G. Romaine, or the 26th of
January last, of wshich the follow

SIR-Surprising as it may seem
that.suqb a b.eing ekists, neoter the
ess friends in your city. assare me
tJt yog ar.e an :honest, lawyer.
Youre.public career and private
character strengthen that .belief
to such;an extent that I remit
herewith a retainer.of $100. Hav
i;ng thus established the relation
of cou,nsel and client, I request
yur. professional assistance in the
following matter: -
.That no doubt of my sincerity
and .ability to perform what .I
promise may exist either in yiour
mixd -or ~the mirads of those- more
directly interested, I intrust tern
porarily to you as such counsel
the articles which accompany thiE
letter. I am prompted :to thif
for the -reason that -numbers oi
offers of a similar -oharacter from
irresponsible persons have been
addressed..to the immediate family
of the -late .Alexander T. Stewr
Te unbroken silunce maintainec
bvne antil now was prompted by
a desire to ailow Judge Hilton tC
exhast every means and pursu<
every clue that promised success
and thus< himself be convinced o
how fruitless were his labors
That he has been as tireless in th<
search as he would be remorselesi
in the prosecution were the per
petrators discovered, is k-no-wn t<
But,. sir, hee labcrs .-to notpar
pose.- The:y press, the people :ant
the- po,liee have been bout/en froni
the-start. -Their theories and th<
progress of the pursuit were daily
published: in the New York pa
pers, a'nd, of course, were read bj
me: Let me assure you, sir, tha!
there was a moment when succesi
The remains were taken befor<
12 o'clock on the night of the 6th
ari not. at. 3 o'clock on the morn
ing of the 7th of November.. They
were not taken away in a carriage,
but in a groce,r's wagon. They
were not taken to any bouse near
the graveyard, but to one near.
One hundred and Sixteenth street.
They were then enclosed in a zinc
lined tiunk previously prepared,
and left on an early train. They
went to Plattsburg, and from
there to the Dominion. There
they were buried.
Except that the eyes have dis
appeared, the flesh is as firm and
the feat4res as natural as the day
of interment,. aud can therefore
be instantly identified. The en
closed piece of paper is exactly
the size of the piece of velvet
taken from the coffin, Wvhile the
small strip sent. you will prove to
be of the same piece as that of the
coffin. If any additional proofs
are required, thQ plate will be sont
you uppn inserting the following
personal-ii the New York Berald:
"Canada-Send P-. Counsel."
One word more. If you decline
to act, a friend will call for the re
tainer sent you.. If you accgpt;
confer, at -once ,with the Rev. Dr.
.RyPlance,irs Clinch, Judge Hilton
and Mrs. buewart. Tell theminot
to a.tte.pt. to trace the writer.of
this,. as it will resuls in nothing,
for I, know that I am perfectly
free from extradition, and as no
map on. earth except myself holds
any Qf the propfs, or, knows where'
the remain.s.are baried, they never
can get to: me.: When you .are
satisfied that the relatives of Mrs.
Stewart will talk basiness,:insert
the following personal in the New
York Herald,:."Canada-will do
business. Counsel." Then y,ou
will hear .from- .e again, and.be

Upon this letter being submit

"personal" to be inserted -in the
Herald, refusing to consider tbe

iegrotiations throtugh "personals."
.qr. Jones replied through the
nail on February 16th, expressing
L desire that the business might

In -accordance with the direc

waited on Judge Hilton. and show

" amnsatisfed tbg.while .Judge

body at Montreal, -he doeg not care
o roeover~ it, but that he wants
he person who toolk it. ,He says
that he wants the body in New
York, and that he does not care
to go to Canada. That is for
yourelf and Judge Hilton to say.
M~y advice .is, that neither yoLr
