Croquet, whenit was Introduced into this

Is fully explained and illustrated In thn last
edili in of "Croqnt t.tts Principles and lliilee,"
by Prof. A. Hover, In wHch it is treated aa a
social home amusement. .
Among the numerous manuals In this coun
try, twonr three authors have treated the
game in a srlcntitio manner. One of
these, a mathematical proleaaor, ha treated
it in a strictly tiiHtheinallcal manner, with
special reference to its adsptahility to clubs
or export plaver regularly nrganied -but
from his standpoint there may ba doubt re
gardtng the wimlom of aouia of the rule.
Another author, under the name of Prof.
Hover, who has devoted his lite to nodal and
home amtiaemetils, has treated the game In
t manner f finally systematic., hut with aeon
utant view to the enjoyment to be obtained
during the progress of the game rather than
in the one ides of I'lrhniril ici'n," Thereean
be no doubt aa lithe relative healthful ef

young or old. In the latter, special atten

diiving two Intra over the ground al one blow

A Scene in San Francisco Harbor.
Las month eight anilors deserted from
the British war steamer Zealous, lying in
the harbor of Hnn Francisco. The Bulletin
describe the scene that followed:
The British Coni.nl, Mr. Booker, and a
party of gentlemen were dining with the
Admiral on board the Zealous, when eight
sailors belonging to the vessel slipped over
finobaeryed'lnto th ' Ursvt which brongh-
the visitors, ond pulled for shore. They
were about fifty yard fmmr the sbmer '
when the guards naw them, , bailed and
fired at them. One of tbe 'Bailor was
struck iu the forehead, but only a. alight
wound wa Inflicted, nnd tha men pnlled -away
with a will. Immediately n -hip's
boat was manned and lowered, and put on"
in pursuit. This boat Contained about
a dozen ofllcera and men, nnd the chase
wna a very exciting one. The deserter
had IhS Mart, and pulled with' dewprntta-a
energy. Aa the ship boat ncarcd hein, ,
several shnta wre Hrc4 from carbhiea and ' t
pistols at the Atom sera,, hut the? fall Short .
or flew wide of the men. They were al
most oye,rlnken when they ran alongside the
tug Rolieccn, scrambled iipon It, nnd made
the wharf. Tho lender ol the party, as he
set bis fool nporj the wharf, Hon beard to
exclaim, 'Thank God, we nre free men
once miarr !'- A largferowd Wl been at
tracted by the firing nnd appearance of the
two bonts, and in it were several burly
boatmen, who tried to stop the further pro
grcsa of thodcscrterB; but they failed to
arrest them, and In a fow miuute aver. '
Bailor had disnppeared. Tli nnrsnil i-aV I
not continued ou shore, and, an fur as know u,
none of the men have been retaken. Dur
ing yesterdnv three othortmnneHrnped from
the same vessel. "
MpTmr at Sea. The barqun Alice Hoy
Capl. Douglass, which arrived here thin
morning from Machiaa, Ufa, bound-to j
Montevideo, was the scene oC a mutiny,
only quelled by the shooting of one of the
rioter. Three men were shipped in F.nst
port to joiu the resael. Tbry Wore no
sooner on board than they wanted to go on
hore again. Tbe captain would allow but
ne of ihem logo. Thi seems to have give
the "anlka," aud "eliortly after the vessel
Railed they became vety bintiiioiin. - On
Friday matters hnd proceeded to encli a '
point, that the captain determined to pnt
tha mou jn iroua. When they were told to - i
come aft, they laughed nt the captain, nnd
dared him to do anything. Ths second
mate thou took hold of on of them, a very
powerfnl man but wan met with a blow
which nearly knocked him overbonrd, and
the mate who intorfored received a ttvara
cut Willi a club. Finally one if tha muti
neer made at the captain with an axn, and
chaaed him two or three time round the
deck. Tha captain had a pistol, but did
not use it. The Stewnrd seeing this, and
thinking that if tha fellow caught tha cap
tain; while Infuriated, he would probably '
kill him, ranacross thn duck seized the pi
t d from the Captain' hand, and shot tha
follow. This put a atop to tha mutiny, aud . -the
Captain bore np for this port. Tha
m in Is wounded below thn lung, and it is '
f.-ared that the wound will provu fatal. The
