RUNNING A SL0CKABE.
How a Yankee Scittier DM it Seveaty
Durine the summer of 1814, the British
took possession or all that part of Ibe Slate
or Maine lying east or tho Penobscot, aad
claimed It u a part oUbelr lawful territory.
Tbey established a sort or naral headquar
ters at Castlne, and from thence sent oat
their cruisers. Upon the Kennebec river at
that time were many thriving towns, and
quite a number or Yankee privateers were
fitted out there. Set eral sailed from Hath,
and even as high up as llallowell, were fit
ted and manned tome or these troublesome
little crafts. In consequence oral! this, the
Ilritisu turned their attention to this latter
river, and established a blockade at Its
mouth. Tbey knew that some privateers
were being fitted out somewhere up the
stream, and tbey were determined to take
them If tbey came out.
And there was another thine which tbe
enemy bad in view In this blockade. There
was a lort up tbo river ashort distance, and
also several military store-bouses, and tbey
(the British) had learned tbat provisions and
ammunition were expected from Boston or
Salcru ror these places. So tbey meant to
kill two birds with one stone : Tbsy would
prevent the privateers from coming out,and
prevent tbe stores from going In.
Many still living, who resided upon the
Keuoebee during that war, remeinbir well
the season or that blockade. The; depend
ed for much or tbeir provisions upon the
coasters which came from Massachusetts ;
and now that the small vessels wcro pre
vented from coming in, they suffered much,
lu llallowell, Wntvrville, Gardiner, and
other places, provisions were so scarce that
iniiiv people who were considered well ott
in ordinary times, lived upon tbe swill,
gatherings of the more wealthy ; and a til
vcr dollar a worth or meal could lie car
ried away In a common pocket handkerchief.
Tbe suffering was great. Tho people knew
that there were several vessels anxious to
get in, but the British war.brlg at the riv
er's mouth prevented Ibcni.
Anions the vessels which were expected
at llallowell, was a heavy schooner named
the Tolly Ann. She was owned and com
manded by a man named Eben Wait. Alio
another schooner called the Eliza, which
belonged to Abner Jenkins.
The Polly Ann and the Eliza both cleared
at Salem, Massachusetts, the former loaded
with one or the most valuable cargoes ever
sept to the eastward, for, betide a large lot
of excellent provisions, such as flour, corn,
rye, and pork and beef, she bad a large
quantity ol arms and ammunition for two
privateers tbat wcro lying at Bath. Tbo
loss or the l'oily Ann would have been a
severe blow in two wa)S. It would have
sadly added much to the want or tbe poor
people or tbe .Kennebec, and bavc prevent
ed tbe outfit of two staunch privateers, and
It w ould also bav c added much to the power
or the cnttny by rurnishing them with things
which they much needed.
The l'oily Ann was a new and valuable
craft; but not so the Kliza. Tho latter was
very old and very rolten, aad she was now
upon last trip. Her owner bad resolved to
try to run to llallowell, and then pull bis
old iichooucr to pieces for firewood, as tbat
was about all she was good for.- On tbe
present occasion, flic was loaded with pro.
visions, but the load was necessarily a light
one, as Jenkins dare not v enture to sink her
too decpl) .
The two schooners sailed from Salem to
gether. In fact Jenkins would not have
dared to sail alone, ror he was not sure bis
rickety old craft would carry him through.
Tbe l'oily Ann was manned by Captain
AVait; bis ion Nathan, a youth or 19; a man
or SO, named Jim Tufts, and Samuel Locke,
a )oung man or 23. Tbe Eliza bad, besides
Iter captain, David, a brother ol tbe 'com
mander; Walter Davis and Charles Allen,

When the two schooners reached Wood
Island, which lies at the moutb or tbe Saco
river, they were boarded by somo Yankee
fishermen, wbo resided there, and who In
formed them that it would be of no uso ror
them to go any further.
"Ye can't git into the river," said one or
them, "for a cussed brlg-o'-war's a layln'

there might be none in bis way. He could
not turn back. He knew tbat thoso whom

food he bad with him ; and tbat the priva
teers could not sail until they bad tbe stores
be bad in charge for them. Aud further,
much or the provisions be bad in cargo

hold of the vessel.
What should be do? Tbe loss to him, II
he failed to make bis trip, would be great;
but be thought not so much or tbat, as be
did of tho loss to those wbo were depend

closely, and was convinced tbat they spoke
truly. Three or them bad come from Man-

robbed or tbeir fish by this samo brig.
"And," continued tho Informant, ''one o'
tbe officers asked us'ef wc knowed the Yan
kee schooner, l'oily Ann. Wo pretended
'at wc didn't know any thing about, lie
said he'd bave'yc et ye come that way."
Captain Wait pondered a long while upon
the Information he bad received.
"It's a hard case," ho said to his friend,
Captain Jenkins. "I know how those fel
lows watch. There's no getting by them."
" 'Ti confounded bad," returned Jenk
ins. "Now, if 't wan't tor tbe cargo I've
got aboard, tbey might havo my old bulk In

to pay 'cm sometbin to carry her off; for

Butwithyour vessel It's different. She's
new and valuable. By thunder, Eben, I'm
afraid we'll have to go back. But it's cus
sed hard, Isn't It?"
But a new light had gleamed upon tbe
bronzed race or Captain Wait,
"Look ye, Abner," be said, eagerly, "ir
I could carry your cargo all safely up tbe
river, would you give up your old vessel"
"Would I i" cried Jenkins. "I'll bet I
would. Yes, air, I'll let her go to grass in
"Then I think we can doit. At all events
we'll try. My schooner can easily carry all
tbe load you've got, from here to Bath.
Well drop In shore and shift cargoes as
quickly as possible.".
Jenkins beard bis friend's plan explained,
and his own face grew bright. The two
schooners were anchored, and then lasbed
side to side; and then all bands turned to
with a will. Before night the Eliza was
"flying" light, with nothing aboard that
could possibly be taken away. Tbey left
her hull, her masts, her throe calls, and such
rifSing aa was absolutely necessary to keep
her off the wind.
The distance from Wood Island to the
mouth of tho Kennebec Is about thirty
miles: so the run was not alongone. Wait
did not wish to start until after midnight,
as his plan was to bring tho war-brig In

from tbe southward aad eastward, aad blew
a fair breexe.and It was likely to ramala to

"Aye, aye," responded Jenkins
thereupon he tet to work.
In the meantime Wait had bis sail all taken

Jenkins' first movement was to lower bis
boat and to secure her by a painter to one
or tbe stern davits. Next be put aa all tail

as toon at he wat satisfied that the schoon

well enough to know tbat she would be true
to the course he had given her ; and having
teen that the sheets were securely belayed,
and that nothing or any value was left on
board, he had his crew get into a boat, and
pulled for tbe Folly Ann.
Away went tbe schooner In fine style,
dashing tbo foam from before her, and leap
ing over the light waves as defiantly as could
be. Captain Wait took bis glass and went

from the deck of the brig, but the schooner

Away went the schooner ami away went

was gaining rapidly. Nearer and nearer,
it came, and shot after shot riddled tbe poor
devoted schooner. Presently her mainmast

This was readily agreed to : for the Polly

tbe irresistible Worth is at tbe bottom or it
all. Ills talons are at least at fashionable
as those ol the great Meaner used to be.
To Inspire Worth with a real interest seems
to be tbe ambition or tbe Parisian leaders

as rare a thing as It It to get any crack
teacher or singing to take a special Interest
tn a pupil. But, then, as the farmer's wife
said or her husband, who drank occasional

inconsistency) go straight off to Paris, pose
to Worth, get themselves designed and

home boasting of their dresses 1
Still our shores wore safe. These things

tako heed! Do you know what ladies'
"shopping" now covert or otherwise f No?
Then learn. Iu a fashionable London es
tablishment the lady goes to choose her ma

liner is eraploved. While tbe dress Is in
progress, sbc returns to be fitted. To her
surprise, the min-mllllncrnow enters upon
scene. Tho milliner girl knows her superi

the assurance of n connoisseur, the master

Presently the artist pauses, and steps back

A CHECKERED CAREER.
Sketch af a tie Fmluttaf Waaaa.
NawYowr, July 31. People here who
knew the Mrs. Shepard who was murdered
here yesterday state tbat the wat one of tbe
most remarkable women who ever figured
In tbe public aad criminal records of this
country. It was said that the was aFrencb
ereole, born in the South. Whan the wts
young tho possessed extraordinary beauty,
combined with an extremely vivacious tem
perament sod ploattng manners. 8Be went
to St. Louis about (Mrty years ago, and at
tracted much attention there. This was
prior to 1(03. She toon became known from
baring attracted tho attention or Seymour
Voullalre, one or the most distinguished
lawyers at the bar or that city. Mr. Voul-
laire't infatuation for her was to great tbat
a marriage ensued.
It was a happy one for about ten. years,
when the community was shocked by an at
tempt to assassinate Mr. Voullalre by an at
tache of the Missouri' RepwMua Yanna
Ruth a young man. A divorce followed,
and the whilom Mrs. Voullalre became tbe
wife or the man wbo attempted to murder
her husband. In a few months thereafter
Ruth became book-keeper in the Lawrence
(Kansas) Triitnt office, and removed with
his wife and Iter children to that city.
Among the residents at Lawrence at tbat
time was a Dr. Medlicott, a physician of
largrfpractiee and universally popular. He
became tbe family physician or Rulh,nd it
toon began lo be whispered tbat hit visit
to the bouse were more frequent than the
most tender professional solicitude for the
health ol tbe Inmates demanded. Shortly
afterward Ruth was found dead with every
indication or having been poisoned. This
suspicion became a positive certainly in the
minds of the people when It was found that
Dr. Medlicott bad had a meeting with Mrs.
Ruth at Leavenworth onl a few hours be
fore bcr husband's death, and was himself
tho only one near him for an hour previous
to bis (Ruth's) death. Medlicott and Sirs.
Ruth were arrested on a charge or murder,
and so violent was the public feeling against
them that tho case was removed to an ad
joining county. The doctor was tried in
Garnett, and although defended by two or
the ablest lawyers In the State Judge
Tbacher and W. W. Nevlson, tbe Jury with
out leaving their seats, found him guilty,
and be was sentenced to bo hanged. Anew
trial was, however, obtained, and owing to
a ruling by tbe supreme court, on a techni
cality he was discbaiged.
Mrs. Ruth was liberated at the same time
after an incarceration in the Lawrence Jail
or nearly one year. At the time or her im
prisonment Seymour Voullalre, her former!
husband, visited Lawrence and took charge
of his two sons, Belmont and Alpbonsc, also
a daughter ol Mrs. Ruth, and carried them
to St. Louis. Wbeu liberated Mrs. Ruth
In New Orleans Mrs. Ruth married a Mr.
Kclley, an agent or a steamship line.
It was believed yesterday that the wo
man's history was made knowu to oung
Shepard after she bad gone to livewithhim
on Twenty-second street, and tint rear of
her was one cause or the tragedy.
Mr. Voullalre, about three or four years
alter securing a divorce from bis wife, mar
ried a refined voung woman of St. Louis
and lived happily with her until he died
about five years ago In the Southern Hotel
lu that city or paralysis. Ills widow and
little girl shortly afterward came to this
city. The widow was employed at the w ti
mer Mercantile Agency, 219 Broadway, un
til recently, but Is now in the country. Sho
is a perfect lady, and respectable In every
way. One of Mr. Voullaire's daughters by
his first wife Is at present In a Western con
vent. Three of his children reside in this
It is said that Mrs. Kellcy's elegant apart
ments iu tbe Marshall Flats in this city were
maintained by Mr. Kclley. Only a few
months ago she became acquainted with
Horace B. Shepard, her last victim. She
still retained much of tbo attractiveness or
her youthful days. Ue fell In lo c with her
and marriage was proposed, but bis family
objected on account of the difference or age
between the couple, she being 43 and be on
ly 24. Shepard was a constant v isltor at her
apartments, and so open were bis attentions
that bcr children objected, and tbe two re
sorted to clandestine meetings. From a let
ter written to his father by Shepard, stating
tbat they bad been secretly married. It is
thought tbat a marriage was consummated
last June. It is now given as a probable
cause for the murder and suicide that Shep
ard, after he had been married to this wom
an for a few months, learned bcr true char
acter and found tbat bis life bad been ruin
ed. Ue then determined to kill hcrand end
bis own misery.
la tbe year 1781, while Clinton and Wash
ington were watching each other move
menu near New York, Gen. Schuyler hav
ing resigned his command, on accoun, of
tome unjust chargcs'agatnst him, wat stay
ing at hit house, which then stood alone
outside of the stockade or wall of Albany.
The British eoawntnder, therefore, seeing
bit opportunity, tent oat John Walter
Meyer, with a party or lories and Indians,
to capture Gen. Schuyler. When they ar
rived at the outskirts of the city, they
learned from a Dutch laborer that the gen
eral's hoase was guarded by tix soldiers.
Tbe Dutchman, the minute the baud was
out or tight, took to bis tegs, and warned
lbs general of their approach.
Soon after, a servant announced that
there was'a strango man at the back door
wbo wished-to tee tbe general. Schuyler,
understanding the trap, gathered bis fami
ly in one or the upper rooms, and glrlng
orders that the doors and windows be bar
red, fired a pistol from one of tho top-story
windows to alarm the neighborhood. Tbe
guards, who had been lousging iu the shade
tree, started to tbeir feet at tbe sound or
the pistol ; but alas, too late I for tbey found
themselves surrounded by a crowd of dusky
forms, wbo bound them band and root lie-
fore tbey had lime to resist.
And now you can Imagine that little group
collected in tbat dark room upstairs; the
sturdy general, standing resolutely by the
door, witb his gun iu his hand, and bis
black slaves gathered around blm, each
with some weapons, and at tbe other end
of tbo room the women were huddled to
gether, some weeping and some praying.
Suddenly a crash U beard which chills the
very blood, and bring v iv idly to each one's
mind Ibe talcs ol Indian massacres so com
mon In that day. Tho baud had broken In
at one or tbe windows.
At that moment Mrs. Schuyler, spring
ing to her feet, rushed toward the door;
for she remembered tbat tho baby, only a
few months old, having been forgotten in
the hurry f light, was asleep in its cradle
on the first floor. But the general catching
her in bis arms, told her that her life was
or more value than tbe child's, and tbat ir
any one must go be would. While, how
ever. Ibis generous struggle was going on,
tbeir third daughter, gliding past them,
was soon at the side or the cradle.
All was as black as night In the hall, ex
cept for a small patch or light just at the
foot ol tbe stairs. This came from the
dining-room, where the Indians could be
seen pillaging the shelves, pulling down
the china and quarreling with ono another
over their ill-gottcu booty. How to get
past this spot was the question, but the
girl dId'not hesitate. She reached the
cradle unobserved, and was Just darting
batk with her precious burden when, by
ill. luck, one ol the savages happened to
see bcr. Whiz ! went his sharp tomahawk
within a few inches or tbo baby's head, and
cleaving tbe edge of the brave girl's dress
stuck Into the stair rail.
Just then one or the lories, seeing her
flit by, and supposing her to be a servant,
called after bcr: "Wencb, wench, whiro
Is your master?" She stopping for a mo
ment, called back, "Gone to alarm the
town !" and, hurrying on, was soon safe
again with her father upstairs.
And now, very nearly all the plunder hav.
lug been secured, the band wns about to
proceed to tbo real object or tbo expedi
tion, wben the general raising one or the
upper windows, called out In lusty toues,
as II commanding a largo body of men:
"Come on, my brave follows! Surround
tbe house I Secure tbo villains who are
plundering!" Tbe cowards knew that
voice, and they cich and every one of them
took to the woods as fast as theirtegs would
carry them, leaving the general In posses
sion of tbe field.
Tbo old Schuyler bouse looks now as It
looked then, except that the back wing for
the slaves has been torn dowu, aud some
fow alterations have been made around the
placo; Jbut when vou arc shown the house
you can still see the dent in the stalrrai1
made by that Indian's hatchet over a hun

"Bill" Nye, the humtilst, arriving in
tbo city yesterday on hi regular annual

of the Ttsusatthe Palmer Houe, and
a tall, slender, smooth laced young man,
apparently about thirty years of age, whose
affability of address tallied well with tbe
cheerful tenor of his writing Mr. Nye
said he would talk from a Republican

Ibe Territory than most people suppose,
and they are spreading so rapidly over the
Northwestern States aud Territories that

thought tbe Edmunds law a total failure
because tho Mormon women, by whom
alone polygamy can bo proven, would In
variably declare upon oath that their off
spring were Illegitimate before they would
criminate their husbsuds. They belonged
body and soul to tbe Mormon elders, and
they wire afraid to disobey tbe edict of
the church. When asked what would be a
rational solution or the Mormon problem,
be replied :
"To anyone who is fimlliar with their

lug or governing them sound absurd.

A rather Interesting incident occurred
while I was a student In the Sheffield Scien
tific School ol Y'ale College. In the Pea
body Museum we bad a large wire cage
containing numerous reptiles, aud among
these was a frog or unusual size.
On one or our excursions I brought a
number or frogs and other animals, and go
ing to the cage dropped the content of the
jar, frogs and all, down among tbe animals
at the bottom. The large frog, which had
been confined there for some time, caught
one or the small ones before it reached tbe
bottom or the cage, and swallowed it With
as great case as he would have captured a
fly. This quickly done, be sat and looked
about with an air or satisfaction for a mo
ment, then sprang upon another or medium
size, caught and swallowed It as quickly as
the first. This done, there was another
pause of a couple of minute, ami men
with another quick bound, be seized and
swallowed a third frog, equal in size to tbe
second ; tbis accomplished, there was an
other pause of about five minute', and then
another quick, savage bound for a fourth
victim, this time for a frog two-thirds
tbe size or himself. Each of the three were
seized and swallowed bead first, but tbe
fourth effort was not so successful as the
others, for this he only managed to get In
to his mouth as far as tbe hind legs, when
there was a pause and a struggle. The un
fortunaU frog in the mouth of tbe large
one persisted in holding its hind legs out
sidewlse, at right angles to Its body, as If
conscious that these Ucties would prevent
the other from swallowing it; and at the
same time tbe large one used iU front feet,
at times one, and again both, to straighten
out tbe hind legs of hit victim so that be
might be allowed to swallow It; and while
tbis struggle was going on. he made fre
quent efforts to use the sides and bottom
of tbe cage against which to press tbe other
frog, so as to aid bis efforts to swallow IU
Tbe struggle,bowever, after lasting a num
ber of minutes, terminated In favor of tbe
smaller fros. for by desperate efforts It
managed to elude the grasp ofiu assailant;
bat while tbe battle did last It used both
Its muscular and vocal poWters to their ut
most to thwart the murderous design or IU

THE HOME OF OUR CHILDHOOD.
Does anybody know what ha become of
the Jolly, old-fashioned times that used to
belong to our lives? They arc missing, and
we cannot find them. Tho days wben the
mention of Thanksgiving meant joy and
gladness, and reunion and merry feasting,
when all tbe members ol the family assem
bled around the pleasant hoard, ami the
great fire burned cheerlully in the great
nreplacc. How the brightly polished and
irons caught the ruddy reflection of the
blaze, and danced around like gold fairies.
Does anybody remember such a fireplace?
The hearth was of freshly painted red brick
and tbe mantle was high beyond the reach
of tbe children. The brass candlesticks
were turned up In a row, and the almanac
hung at one end. Thosborel and tongs had
their respective corners, and there wa a
crane In tbe back or tbe fireplace, where
tbe tea-kettle used sometime to sing like a
nightingale. Where are tbey gono?
There was a pantry, too. (have jou seen
It?) with a smell or cbccc and mince pic,
dottgbnuU, and a tempting display or jars
tied up In white cloths. There was always
one not so tightly tied as the rest, and naugh
ty hands would reach after the peach pre
serves sometimes. Anybody know where
alt those pantries have gone ? There were
two old rocking-chairs with cushion pieced
up Irom scraps or dresses. The paint was
worn rrom the arms, and they tipped over
U you rocked too far back, but wc wish they
could be found.
There was a kitchen, too. It went away
with all tbe rest. A sweet kitchen, where
there was always a smell or good dinner, a

A BUSINESS SPELL.
Two or three years ago, there lived in the
lower oil country a prominent oil producer,
who wa a notoriously bad speller. In a
letter, among other errors, he spelled water
with two ta. A party of gentlemen were
discussing this peculiarity In the bar-room
or the Collin House, Oil City, one evening
when the poor speller liiinsclr chanced to
"Hello '."said one of the patty, a corpu
lent gentleman, remotely connected with
the New Y'ork Petroleum Exchange, "wc
were Just talking about you."
"Is that so ?" w as the reply. "And what
were you saying?"
"Why, some of the boy rliim that yon
arc the worst speller In seventeen States."
"They do? I think I can spell about a
well a the average producer."
"I'll tell you what I'll do with you," said
the first speaker, "I'll bet the champagne
for the party that you can't spell water."
"All right," replied the producer, and he
proceeded to spell the word, "w-a-t-e-r "
"That's the way I spell water lor money,"
he quietly remarked, "but when I spell It
for lun, 1 sometimes uso two t."
The corpulent gentleman paid for the
wine, and tbp silence became so great that
you could bear a house fall down. r.raJord
