BEGINNING OF JAPAN'S NAVY.
Confederate Boat Stonewall Jackson
First of Its Modern Warships.
Probabll no officer of tbe American
nary has followed tbe development of
that of Japan with greater interest,
says The New York Tribune, than
? Lieut. Henry E. Rhoades, now on
duty at the Brooklyn navy yard, for
he was officially identified with the
beginning of the navy of Japan as far
back as 1868. A reporter of The Tri
bune called on him Tuesday, but he
was disposed to express himself guard
edly, because of his official position.
"When asked if he was not one of the
American navy officers who received
appointments in 1868 to aid in the or
ganization of the Japanese navy, he
?*I believe that the credit for the
Japanese navy may be placed to tbe
American navy officers. It really be
gan with the purchase of the armor
clad Stonewall Jackson (later named
the Adzuma) from the Uuited States
government in 1866, although thecon
structiou of the naval dockyard at
Yokoska was commenced in 1865, un
der the supervision of a French engi
neer. This was not completed till
1879. It cost nearly $2,500,000. The
Stonewall Jackson was built in
France, under a contract with the
Danish government, and was to be
known as the Spbynx, but as this was
about the time of the closiDg of the
Schleswig-,Holstein* war, and there
was delay in the completion of the ves
sel, Denmark became lukewarm in
carrying out tbe terms of the pur
chase, and the boat passed iuto the
possession of the Confederates.
She put to .sea soon afterward, but
owing to some derangement of the
. steering machinery she ran into Fer
rol, Spain, for repairs, in Feb., 1865,
where were lying the American war
vessels Niagara and Sacramento. The
commander of the American vessels
allowed the Stonewall to escape, and
she went to Lisbon, and thence across
the Atlantic to Havana. Here she lay
until after the close of the civil war,
and was then given up by Spain to the
United States. Later the Stonewall
was sold to Japan, and she was sent
over there by the United States under
command of Captain (now Rear Ad
miral) George Brown, and deli vered to
Yokohoma in the latter part of the
spring of 1868."

' A Lady from the North Insulted by a
Negro at Aikon.
A dispatch from Aiken to The State
says Sunday night about ten o'clock a
negro man accosted a lady on South
Boundary street, and when she
screamed and ran he chased her fur
i several hundred yards and also fired a
pistol at her twice. The lady is a
northerner?Miss Kirke?and is a
trained nurse who is treating a pa
tient in a family of Boston people
here for the season. The family have
rented the Williams cottage on South
! Boundary street. Miss Kirke is spend
ing the season at Mrs. Ashlfy's itcut
300 yards away, on the same street.
Sunday evening was darK and rainy
and after supper Miss Kirke left Mrs.
Ashley's for the home of the patient,
carrying a lantern to guide her. As
she entered the gate of the William's
place she saw a negro standing beside
the fence. Miss Kirke asked him if
he desired to see some one and the
man replied that he was waiting for
his aunt, who was cooking for the
family. Miss Kirke passed into the
houce and left at about 10 o'clock to
return to Mrs. Ashley's, as usual.
There are no building* between the
two houses, but the ground is covered
with tall grass and some bushes.
With the lady were two dogs, and as
they passed a small clump of bushes
they growled and barked. The lady
turned out into the road and as she
j did so the light of her lantern reveal
ed a negro peering from behind thej
oushes. She fcreamed and n: zvA
the negro called "come here." She'
continued running and the negro
called "come here" the second time.
When she did not stop he ran after
her and tired twice with a pistol.
The negro chased her for about 100 j
yards, and then a young man at the j
house, hearing screams and the tiring ;
ran out and shot at the man several j
times. When the matter was report-1
ed to the police this morning the)
premises were searched and there
were found footsteps showing that,
the negro had walked around tne wn-1
liaras house and then went and hid
behind the bushes and waited for the I
lady to return.
