General Grant Diagnosed by Dr. Hosea
Dr. Hosea Biglow, from motives of pore pbilan<
thropy and a commendable desire to benefit th?
country, has listened to a recital of the woes which
invest the General of the army by reason of hie
anomalous position upon the current issue." of thc
day, and. Uko the sympathetic physician that he is,
has kindly preferred the toUowing diagnosis whici
assumes the form of an answer to one of tho many
industrious and anxious seekers for the General's
DEAR SIB.-YOU wi?h to know roy notions
On sartin pints thet tile the land;
There's nothin' thet my natur so ehuue
Ez bein' mum or underhand;
I'm a straight-spoken kind o' crectur
Thet blurts right out wut's in his bead.
An' ef I've one pccooler leetur,
It is a no?e thet wunt be led.
So, to berrin at the beginnin'.
An' como directly-to thc pint,
I think tho country's uuderpiuuin"
Is some consid'Clo out o'jint;
I aiut agoiii' to trv your patience
By teUin' who done this or thet,
I don't make no insinooations,
I jest let on I smell a rat.
Thet is, I mean, it seems to mc so.
But, ef the public think I'm wrong,
I wunt deny but wut I be so
An*, fact, it don't smell very strong:
My mind's iu fair to lose its balance
An' say wich party hez most sense ;
There may be folks o' greater talenco
Thet can't set stidditr on the fence.
I'm an eclectic; ez to choosin'
'Twixt this an' thet, I'm plaguy lowth ;
I leave a side thet looks like losin',
But (while there's doubt) I stick to both;
I stau' upon tho constitution,
Ez preudent statesman say, who've planned
A wr.y to git the most profusion
O' chances ez to ware they'll stand.
Ez to the answerin' o', questions,
I'm an off ox at bein' druv.
Though I aint one thet ary tost shuns
I'll give our folks a helpin' shove;
Kind o' promiscous I go it
Fer the holl country, an' the ground
I take, ez nigh ez I can show it,
Is pooty gen'aliy all round.
I don't approve o' givin' pledges;
You'd ought to leave a feller free.
An' not gokcockin' out the wedges
To ketch his ficsers in the tree;
Pledges air awfie breach)* cattle
Thet preudent farmers don't turn out
Ez long'z the peuple git their rattle,
Wut is there fer'm to grunt about ?
Ez to my principles, I glory
In hevin' nothin' o' the sort;
I aint a Bad, I amt a Loco,
I'm jest a candidate, in short;
Thet'a lair an' square an' purpendicier,
But, ef the public cares a brad
To hev me an'thin' in partidor,
Wy, I'm a kind o' Demmy-Bad.
Ez we're a sort o' privateerin',
O' course, you know, it's sheer an' sheer,
An' ?here is sutth:n' wurili your heaim'
I'll mention in your pnvit ear:
Ef you git me insido the White House,
Your head wiih ne I'll kiu' o' "niut
By ejttin' you inside thc Light-house
Down to the eend o' Jaalam Pint.
An' now, you 6ee, I dun an' sed it,
I hope you'll bother me no more;
You see this talkin'-wy I dread it
I sposo you neara o' that afore.
But when you git to thet convention
I hope you'll put me on the course;
Jes' one more thing I d like to mention:
Soto do you like my sorrel 'orse?

PABTICCLAB8 OF THE WHECE OF THE AMEHICAX
8HIP GENEBAL GEANT-THE SUEV1VOB3 LIV?
ING OX THE AECEXAND ISLAND EIGHTEEN'
MONTHS-UPWARDS OF TWENTY LIVES LOST.
The BoBton papers bring ns a vory interest- I
ing account of the wreck of tho ship General
Grant, owned in that city, which, during a
calm, drifted like a log on to the iron-bound
shores of the Aukland Isles, not to bo ground
to atoms against the almost endless wall ol'
. rock environing them, but to be embayed lu
one of the cavernous crevices hero and there
formed by volcanic or other action, then slowly
but surely to be drawn, as it wi re, into
a giant cave, against the sides and roofs o; I
which the good ship's timbers crushed until
she settled down into the deep abyss of waters.
It was night when she drifted int j this cave,
which is described as being nearly four hun?
dred feet deep. The night was very dark, and
nothing could be seen but the black rocks
around and above the ship. When daylight
came the boats were lowered; there were, in
etadtag twenty-four of a crew, eighty-three
passengers in all, among whom were Bix la?
dies and about twenty children. Of these
there escaped from the sinking ship four male
passengers, ten seamen, and one female, the
stewardess-fifteen in all. The captain of the
ship was last seen in the mizzen topmast
cross trees; within a few moments of disappear?
ing he waived bis handkerchief as an adieu to
those who were in the boats. The sufferings
endured by the survivors from tho wreck for
eighteen long months on the Auckland Isles
are thus narrated by a correspondent at Dune?
din, Otago, New Zealand, who writes under 1
date of February 24th: J
Slowly and sadly the survivors pulled away i
from the dreadful cave wherein so manv of J
their fellow passengers had found their last 1
resting place. The coast, as far as they could I
see, consisted of high perpendicular rocks, and 1
there was no possibility of effecting a landina. 1
They were many times in peril before they J
landed;, they were ali the day pulling, some- .
tunes iii the teeth of the wind, and it was night *
before they reached a large rock about one and ?
a half miles northeast of Disappointment lal- i
and. In trying to effect a landing for the pur- <
pose of obtaining fresh water ono of the boats ?
was swamped, but tho men got safely on tho
rocka. Of all their provisions only three pieces
of pork and nine tins of bouilli were saved.
The boat, however, was recovered. On tho
morning of tho 15th of May they got some frosh
water. They had been unable to procure any (
wood for afire, and even if they had they would
have hesitated before risking their last niotcu
on rocks where it would have been impossible i
for them to live. They were obliged to keep
on their oars all night so as to prevent being
blown off the land.
About noon of the 15th they enterod a placo 1
called North Harbor, but thoy did not think it. 2
a fit refuge, so at daylight the next morning
they started again and reached Port Boas.
There they camped and set about tho anxious
task of lighting a fire, in whicn thev were for?
tunately successful. Tho fire they lighted that
evening was nut allowed to go out for eighteen
months. They caught two or threo bilda, -
athered a few limpets, ana these, witb a Un of
ouilli, wei o cooked and heartilv enjoved by
the poor shipwrecked people. Tho next dav
they discoveiod some old huts, which had,
doubtless, afforded shelter for other sufferers, >
and gathered limpets and killed four seals on s
the beach at Enderby s Island. They saw sonic
Soats, but did not "succeed in catching any.
bowing that ships had been wrecked there
before, and that the island they wcro on had
been a refugo for men in tho sam? condition as
themselves, thoy pa-; jed the next few days in
searching for food, tools and clothing, ?hieb
they thought might havo been lott for the ben?
efit of futuro castaways. Thcv were not suc?
They were very badly off for clothing. 1 lu-rc
wore some who were without coats, hats and ?
shoes and stockings. From this cause and ?
from the want of nourishing food, the partv ?
for many days were in a state of dreadful auf- ?
iering. "They were attacked with dysentery, s
and became so reduced and emaciated that
they feared non" would be lett to tell the story, s
One day when they were out in the bay search- -
in? foi "the hut left by Captain Musgrave, who s
with some of his crew had but a few mouth-i
before escaped a similar peril after twenty .
months' suffering, they describe themselves <?
as being so weak that they could scarcely lift Z
their oars ont o' the water; when, after an ab- 2
sence of eight days, they returned to their
companions, they were sri?rtled with borrer at
finding the men they had left reduced almost
to baie skin and bono. They knew then how
they themselves had changed. But after a
time they rallied; they got more accustomed
to the food; they succeeded in making a little
salt, and from tho skins ot' tho seals they made
moccasins for the shoeless. They also man?
aged to mako a sail from sealskin.
On the 11th of July they came upon Mus
graves hut; their joy was great, for they
thought they would tind there a well-stocked
depot; but their disappointment was greater,
for every thing had been carried away except a
few rags of old canvas and an old boiler
which they afterwards used to boil Bait ra.
They made many discoveries, which, aitnoiign
trifling in themselves, were of absorbing inter?
est and value lo the finder.-. They found two
files and another hut fitted up with turee
bunks, in which there were an adze, a spaae,
and a little wearing apparel. They saw some
pip tracks, but no piss. As I have said before,
their covering at night was grass, and the
weather being bitterly cold, their beds were
not as comfortable as they would have liked.
They managed to catch seals enough to hvo
upon. It was a long time before they knew
bow to use the skins for clothing; they were
so hard; but at length they discovered that by
paring the dried sirius close to the roots of the
hair, they could obtain a very soft material.
And so they managed to live on. The history
of one day was the history of alb
In September, after they had been on th?
islands for over four months, they were all
attacked with an alarming sickness. Their
stomachs began to swell, then their limbs;
most of them thought that their last hour was
come. It somewhat resembled scurvy, as
when they pressed upon tho swollen part tho
indentation remained for some time. They
learned afterwards that it was a disease known
to old whalers s the 'cobbler.-'
On the O'th of October a ship was seen. They
were on au island at the time, which they
called Rabbit Island, as they found rabbits
there. Thev instantly multiplied their fire,
and four of "them gave chase in thc boat, but
without success. The ship passed, and was
not seen again. This had tho effect of de?
pressing their spirits considerably. The suf?
ferers are positive in their declaration that tho
smoke from their fires must have been seen on
the ship. So October and November passed.
They had an agreeable variety in their food
about this time in tho finding of some sea
fowls' eggs, and they lighted on a rusty axe
in thc stump of an old tree directly in front
of ono of thoir huts. Then, btginning to
be worn out with hopo deferred, they deter?
mined to make an effort for their own deliver?
ance. They fitted up one of their two boats,
decked her over with seals' skin, provisioned
her with seals' meat, about thirty gallons of
water in 6oals' gullets, the flesh of threo goals
and about twenty lozen of cooked eggs. The
names of thc crew aro eiveu below. On thc
22d of January, 18C7, they started, without
compass or nautical instrument of any sort.
They thought that by steering cast-northeast
they would make New Zealand. This was au
error, as thc course should have been north or
a littlo to tho west of north. At the time of
the start the wind was southwest, but on the
first night it shifted to the northwest, with
rain, and blowing very bard. Those who were
loft upon the land were very hopeful of a suc?
cessful result to thc venture of their comrades ;
but five weeks passed, and then they knew
that in all likelihood they would never meet
their comrades again in this world. There is
one hope Still. The boat may bavo mado
Campbell's Islands, which are one hunched
miles cast of the Aucklands.
February passed and March. In the latter
month they found a stave on which was writ?
ten in charcoal, "Minerva; four men, one offi?
cer; Leith, May 10th, 18W; March 25th, 18G5."
April and ?Way slipped by, and the men had al?
most given up hope; but they gathered a great
pile of wood, ready to light as a Bipnal in case
a ship were seen. " In the month ot June they
caught a small pig; they kept her for three
mouths and then they killed her. Then oc?
curred an event which occasioned much sad?
ness. On the 3d of September old David
McLcIlau died, lie had worked with them
and suffered with them. It was like losing
thc chief part of their dying hope fo lose
him. He was buried in thc sandhill on Ender?
About this time they were very well off for
food. They succeeded by means" of an inge?
nious hook made out of a half inch bolt in
catching a number of pigs, and they found
some wdd potatoes. They sent adrift tho in?
flated bladders of thc pigs", attached to which
were slips of wood, on which was written an
account of their sad condition, in thc hopo of
3omo ship pickiug one up. They also made
small boats of about three root in length; they
attached to each a beary niece of iron BO as tb
turn the little craft by tue stern, to keep her
before the wind, and cast them out upon thc
waters. On the deck of each wore carved all
tho pirticulars of the wreck. Nearly despair?
ing, and yet clinging to thc hopo, growing
fainter day by day, of being rescued, ibo little
band lived on, adopting every means within its
power of assisting in its own deliverance.
On the 19th of November, 18S7, more than
eighteen months after the wreck of tho Gene?
ral Grant, the man on the lookout saw a sail.
The signal fires were lighted without delay,
but the smoko did not appear to attract no?
tice. On the 21st the brig Amherst was sight?
ed, running from thc south along thc east
coast. The boat was launched, was observed
from tho brig, and tho sufferers were taken on
board. It is almost needless to say that they
were treated by Captain Gilroy and his officers
and men with kindness and consideration.
Tho joy of tho rescued sufferers was great.
"Words," says ono, "cannot express our feel?
ing of joy for such a deliverance Jroni hard?
ship and privation during a period of eighteen
months." They were taken on to Southland,
New Zealand, whero they were hospitably re?
ceived and provided for."
AFFAXBS rx DAELISOTOX.-We get tho follow?
ing items from tho Darlington Southerner :
During the absence of Mr. Samuol Marco
(who bad gone to Charleston), on Tuesday
night his store house was entered by thieves
and goods to the amount of about two hun?

part being at a reduction of Yfi from la-t quotations,

movement checked by the asking prices being mate?
rially above the limita of most pending ordeis. Ibo
large holders were generally stringent tn their pre?
tensions, from which they were reluctant to make
any concessions; but other parties were willing to

WALTZEBOBO', S. C., July 22,1867.
GENTLEMEN : In reply to your inquiry relative to tho merita of WHANN'3 SUPER-PHOS?
PHATE, which, at your recommendation, I empoyed this season upon my Cotton lands, I
would state that it hos tully equalled, and indeed surpassed my expectations, and its applica?
tion has beon attended by thc most favorable results. I have used it in connection with tho
most popular Phosphates, and unhesitatingly give the preference to WHANN'S, which I
regard as being (next to Peruvian Guano) tho most valnablo Fertilizer for Cotton that has been
offered to tho public. Very respectfully, ALLEN C. IZARD.
