The Records that the Lost Commander it
of the Jeannette Left in Huts on the
Frozen Shores of the River Lena. al
WAsIrxINGox, March 20.-TheSee P!
retary of the Navy received this morn
nlg an official report from Engineer U'
Melville of the Jeannette, dated Ya- a'
kutsak, January 6, and containing a T
narrative of his adventures and his w
search for Lieut. De Long since the dis.
persion of the Jeannette's 'boats on the O
night of September 12, 1881. At that 01
time the three boats containing the Z
crew of the abandoned ship were only
fifty miles northeast of Bonkin, their
destination. A gale arose, blowing N
from the northeast, and the boats were
separated. The story of, M VWlle's e
landing on September 19, andiiiaajarq h
for De Long and his party, has been b
told at diferent times in the newapa- a'
pers, and so the report does not contain n
a great deal that is ow.; He ttiasmits
various records left by Lieut. De Long I
in huts at places where he and his party a'
stopped in their search for a settlement. Ic
From these records he is able to trace
the course of Lieut. De Long up to Oc
tober 9. A letter was -ftund in a hut vl
near the mouth of the Lena, where t
Lleut. De Long landed on September o1
19. Various artcles leftny tlhe eisss g tl
party were found In the hut, including a'
cast-off clothing, two broken rifles, a il
box of specimens from Bennett Island, tI
two cook stoves, four log books, and a
other things. The letter Is signed by of
Lieut. De Long and the thirteen other th
members of the party, and Is copled'in ti
six languages; with a request that the b
finder will forward it to the Secretary ti
of the Navy at Washington. After si
speaking of the separation of the boats n
on the night of September 12, Lieut. 0
De Long says: tI
",My boat made the landon the morn- c
ing of the 16th instant,. and I suppose f
we are at the Lena delta. I have had
no chance to get sight for position since t
I left Simonatki Island. After trying '
for two days to get in shore without I
grounding, or to reach one of" the river
mouths, I abandoned my boat and a
waded it miles, carrying our provisions
and outfit with us. We must now try,
with God's help, to walk to a settle
ment, which I believe to be 95 miles
distant. We are all well; have four a
days' provisions, arms and ammuni
tion, and are carrying with us only
ship's book and papers, and blankets,
tents, and some medicines; therefore,
our chance of getting through seems
good."
A second letter was, found .In ; ahut
on the Lena delta," twetve· milhs froth
the'head of the delta, by a Yakut hun
ter. It was dated September 26, and
recorded the arrival of Lieut. De Long
and his party there and their departure
for the southward. Another record left
by Lieut. De Long was subsequently
found by a Yakut hunter in a hut on the
Lena delta, and dated September '22.
A request, copied in six languages, that
it be forwarded to Washington, was
found with it. In this letter Lieut. De
Long says: -
"My boat, havyng w thered the gale,
i made the ladi bon d . n`tn]g of the
16th Instant,anl tafter rn to get in
shore for twodays, and being prevented
by shoal water, weabandonedftho boat,
and waded to the beach, carrying our
arms, provisions, and records, at a point
about twelve miled to. the notth aat
east of this dlace. -. 4eVhltdWnffef`tt
s somewhat from cold, wet, and expo
sure, and three of our men wure badly
lamed ; but - having OnlyQ ( four =days'
provisions left, reduceff rations, were
forced to proceed to the southward. On
Monday, September 10, we left a pile
ot our effects near the beach, erecting a
long pole where will be found every
thing valuable, chronometer, ship's log
books for two years, tent, &e., which
we were absolutely unable to carry. It
took us forty-eight hours to make these
twelve miles, owing to our disabl,ed
men, and these two huts seemed to me
va good place to stop wlile I pushed
forward with the surgeon and NInder
man to get relief for us. But last night
we shot two reindeer, which gives us
Sabundance of food for the present, and
we have seen so many more that anx
lety for the future is relieved. As soon
as our three sick men can walk weshall
resume our march for a settlement on,
'the Lena river.
r- SATURDAY, Sept. 24, 8 A. M.-Our
n three lame moen being now able to walk,
we are about to resume our journey
r. with two 'lays' rations deer meat and
Stwo days' rations pemmicatn, and three
pounds tea."
The latest record found was dated mi
October 1. A Yakut hunter discovered da
it in a hut on the Lena. At this time* N
all of Lieut. De Long's party were yet tb
alive. They had two days' supply of in
provisions, but had no fear of the fu. as
ttre, as they had all along been able to vi
get game. Erickson's toes had been le
amputated in consequence of frost bite. so
The party was about to cross to the pa
west side of the Lena. From the two in
mensent ahead by Lienut. De Long on as
October 9, Melville learned something to
of the wanderings of the lost men sub- si
sequent to October 1. They crossed the fi
Lena to the west bank at a summer cc
bunting lodge called Usterda. Eriek
son was carried in an improvised bed
drawn by his comrades. They proceed.
el conth for two days, and crossed m
a snmall branch of the Lena, whieh they tl1
had to wade. On October 6 they stopped e3
at a small hut, where Erickson died the in
next day, and was buried In the Lens. w
By this time they were in a deplorable no
condition, having eaten their last allow- ex
ance of dog meat, and being on an al- ol
lowance of three ounces of alcohol per H
man per day.
They pushed south until October 9, dl
when Lieut. De Long decided to send w
two men ahead to seek relief. The feet ill
of Ninderman and Nores were better B
than those of the others, and they were as
supplied with their blankets and Rem- -
ington rifles, forty rounds of ammuni- te
tion, and si ounces of alcohol, which Im
was a per capita division of the whole
stock of the latter. They were ordered pt
to proceed south on the west bank of pi
the Lineg auit to send relief If found, si
being told that the others would follow
their footsteps. When the two men J,
started the party was at a halt on the it
north bank of a large' western branch b:
of the Lena. The two men ascended 13
that branch about five miles to make a B
crossing, and then traveled east to a to
hut situated on the Lena bank. After w
fourteen days of intense suffering and
slow progress they reached Beleour and 0
were found by three natives, who sup
t plied them with food and transported I
them to Belun by deer sleds, arriving t
at that place on September 27.
lMelville visited the place where De
Long crossed the Lena in November.
His party suffered greatly, and got back
s to Belun on November 27 in a nearly C
r exhausted condition. Concerning the
further search of Lieut. De Long Mel
ville says:
"From my knowledge of the coun
try, and from the evidence of Nores t
and Ninderman, I am convinced that
Lieut. De Long and party are some
t where to the westwardof the Lena, and
between " Sixte aneck and Belcour,
which are separated by an extent of
aboutl80 versts of barren and desolate
g region devoid oi substance. To reach 8
e that region a large force will be re- r
rt quired, with property authority from
the Russian official. I therefore came
· to this place to communicate with the
L United States, and immdlately, with
It the aid of the authorities, to organize
I searching parties. In the mean time t
e the commandant of Belun is searching
with all the force his small town affords.
The Governor of this province has
sept a genera order throughout the en
Stire region from the Lena to Kolyma
d to search for and render assistance to
both parties that are missing. I am now
ar completing my arrangements, and will
It start north in a few days."
Nros,one of. the tyo men who-last
s;w *ilet-. ~ Long, has written a let
ter to his father In Fall River, Mass.
y The letter contains no particulars not
+. previously known.
FALL RTrva, Mass., March 20.-The
in following letter was received in this
le city on Saturday night from Louis J.
, NbroN , one of the two men on the
- Jeannette who last saw Capt. De Long
alive. Noros was in De Long's boat:
h YAKU'TSK, Siberia, Jan. 7, 1882.
It DARe FATHER-I send you a few
so lines to let you know that I am alive
-d and well. Our ship was broken up
ie June 11, and left thirty-three men on
sd the Ice hundreds of miles from civili
ir- zation. We traveled 800 or 900 miles,
lit some 300 or 400 of which we sailed In
us small boats, and landed on the north
d ern coast of Hiberla. One of our boats
x- landed on the east coast. The other we
on know nothing about. There were eight
ill men in the boat that is missing. The
en boat I was in arrived safe enough. We
had fourteen men. Some of the men
or had their feet frozen. Mine were frozen.
k, One man died after we got on shore.
ey We traveled aboat two weeks, short of
ed food. Then the Captain decided to
ree send Ninderman and myself on ahead
to look for assistance. WVe walked 120
miles without anything to eat; forsix TI
days we had not a mouthful of food. I
We were most starved when found by
the natives. The Captain sad the ten
men, I fear, have died from starvatlta
and cold. Three men-Englaeer Mil
ville, William Ninderuan and Barg t
lett---will remain here this summer to at
search for the remains and for theship's
papers The rest of us-there are ten
men-will proceed to the United States m
as soon as possible. We have been W
traveling now for over a month on
sleds drawn by reinodeer, and this Is the I
first place of any account we have wl
come to. or.

ANECDOTE OF JUDGE STOR* .
1ae
The following anecdote aboutithe fa- I
mous jurist Story is In prlvate dreamla bl
tion, but Is good enough for the pable rit
eye. It was prepared for Story'sbiog. n
raphy by his son, but Charles Sumner, In1
who edited the work, struck it out.. The e,
narrative runs like this: Ia his young- th
er days Story lived in the aristocratle ,l
old town of Salem, in Massachusetts. th
His great ability was not then temper- in
ed by as much wisdom as he afterward in
displayed, and he was looked upon g,
with disfavor by some of the old fam- i,
ilies. One day Mrs. A. called upon Mrs. tic
B., and in the course of their conver" ti
sation-there being aseamstress present vi
-Mrs. A. asked Mrs. B. if her daugh. W
ter was going to the party that even- o
ing. B
,'No," was the short reply; "I don't est
propose to let my daughter go to any as
place which Is frequented by that In- e
significant young puppy, Story." m
Years afterward, when Story was a
Judge on the Supreme Bench, he vis- ah
ited Salem, and was warmly welcomed wi
by those who had known him former- so
ly. Among his best friends was Mrs. 8e
B., and he accepted her pressing inv- l
tation to dinner. Now, In the years as
which had elapsed, the seamstress had or
become possessed of a home of her fo
own, to which was attached a garden, tt
with a pear tree, which was Just then E
loaded with fine alit. After theinvi- w
tation to dinner had been accepted the *
seamstress received a call from Mr. B.'s e
servant, asking ber to send up a basket.tl
of her excellent pears for dinner, as o
c Mr. Justice. Story, of the Supreme t
Court of the United States, was to be ,
pa resent."
The good natured seamstress sent the
pears at once, and with this message:
"Tell your mistress that I am glad
that the Insignificant young puppy,
Story, has grown to be so fine a dog."

with all your mangement, you can't ,

e debt at the end of the year? Well' I'11 tl
e tell you, Telemachus, why it is, and it e

rumDEr' LETTER TO THE IROQUOIS
DEXOCRATIC CLUB 0F CHICAGO.
GRnrsoN, Yonkers, N. Y.,
March 11, 1882. m
Gentlemen-I have received your let- trl
ter conveying to me an Invitation to in
attend the banquet of the Iroquois Club,
Chieago, March 15, the anniversary of wi
the birth of Andrew Jackson, and to ate
respond to the toast, "Democracy." It pc
will not be practicable for me to be do
present with you on that occasion; but a
I cordially sympathize in the homage co
which you propose to pay to the meam- til
ory of that great soldier-statesman. He ul
represented the exultant nationality of m
sentiment which had always character- ha
bed the Democracy, and he manifested be
in a great public crisis his own inevita- sh
ble determination to maintain the ter- pr
ritorial Integrity of our country and the wt
Indissoluble union of the States; he e,
likewise represented the beneficent afl
Jefersonian philosophy which prefers dr
that nothing shall be done by the Gen- p1
eral Government which the local au
thorities are compqtent todo, and noth- Ss
leg by any governmental power which re
individuals can do for themselves. The ca
great contest of his administration ht
arose out of his efforts to resist usurpa- ot
tion by Congress of powers in deroga- at
tion of the rights of localities and Indi- tt
viduals, as well as the Constitution. I w
well remember that in a debate in 1832, 1
on the veto of the bill to recharter the I
Bank of the United States, Mr. Web- di
ster, with all his eloquence, denounced ha
and deplored the spectacle of the Ex- Ib
ecutive claiming the power and dis- fo
mantling the Government of which he cc
was the head. *The over-growth of to
abuses and arrogation of authority va
which now conceal, as they have dis- il1
sorted, our political system, would have as
seemed fifty years ago, when the de- fa
bate occurred, as incredible to Webster hi
as they would be to Jackson. The Gov
ernment can never be restored and te- C
formed except from the Inside and by pl
the active, intelligent agency of the w
Executive. We must hope Providence n
will in its own good time raise up a F
man adapted and qualified for the wise a
execution of the great work and that a
the people will put him in possession a
of the powers of the executive admin- t
ter, through which alone that noble >
mission can be accomplished and pre
served and reinvigorated. ]

What is the Matter With the Moon.'
Professor lielbroun, the well-known
" selenographer, has given it to be under
stood that of late he has detected a
marked change in the appearance of i
the moon, which in wholly unaccount
able upon the established theory that
"Luna taclta" is a wholly dead and a
silent world. Our readers are aware C
that it has been considered an establish- e
ed truth that the moon long ago reached I
that utter lifelessness to which, in turn, C
our own planet will come, and that not
only have air and water disappeared
from it, but all force except that of
gravity has departed from it. Its face,
beautiful as it appears in the evening I
heavens, is really a record of past woes
e and throbbings, and the scars of vol- I
canic action which appear thereon are
Its mountains and its abrupt and preo.
cipitous declivities. According to Pro
Sflessor Hellbroun, our statellite is not so
e dead as it has seemed, for fissures never
before noticed have appeared on Its
surface, and there are indications of
r some very interesting and perhaps Im
portant changes in the "dead planet"
a which at any time may become actual
d itles-with what possible effect upon
a the earth we know not.-Astrornomnihe

t Newspapers are a good thing to ihhve
I about a town to puff upeverybody anti
a evqrything. To give free notices of ev
,- cry entertainment, church fatir or sup
j per, benefit got up, etc.; to puff mor
,, chants, lawyers and doctors, clerks and
,t clergy, and the greatness of the town
d and its people; to induce immigration
,I and capital to flow into the town and
3, country; to bring trade to the place
g from far and near, and encourage every
a enterprise and everybody on general
I. principles. Newspapers are a good
e thing to have In a county, to laud
e. aspirants for office, and make great men

o the battles of the people on all occasions

his next paper, he Is rated as a dead

benefits he can get through the l,ublic
mouth-pieco without ever putting a
crumb in the hungry mouths of the
publisher's children, in the way of an
adverlisemoint. County felclals should
send olff for all their little printing they
cannot get given to them at home. It
is very encouraging to hbomoepterprise
to do this way, and never fdlls to insure
popularity with the public.-E,h,.,..
