A Memorial of a Noble Deed.
On the Victoria pier, Jersey, there
is a simple granite obelisk about 20
feet high inclosed by an ornamental
garden. It was placed there by the
foresters of Jersey to commemorate
an act of noble heroism. On March
17, 1870, the steamship Normandy
"was proceeding up the channel in the
midst of ft dense fog, when she col
lided with another vessel off the is
land of Jersey. Captain Harvey in
stantly ordered boats to be lowered
in which to place all the passengers
on the ill fated vessel.
Tbe crew loyally obeyed the cap
tain's directions, and all the passen
gers were safely lowered into the
boats, together with a number of the
men belonging to the ship. There
was no room for the captain and 41
members of his crew, and they
elected to perish rather than endan
ger by their extra weight the safety
of the passengers. The boats sped
away in the direction of the island,
leaving the gallant captain and his
men on the doomed vessel. In a few
minutes the waves . engulfed her,
carrying down the brave men to a
watery grave. The names of these
heroes are cut in the granite obelisk,
thus handing down to posterity the
record of one of the noblest acts of
heroism of which the British navy
can boast. Million.
Letter Writing Inverse to Distance.
I have always- favored a uniform
postage to and from all parts of the
British empire, but I have never pre
cisely seen why the postage should
be Id. To make this reduction on
outgoing letters, while our colonies
etill charge 2$d. on incoming letters,
would be to force their hand, for the
penny one way would oblige the col
onies to charge only the penny the
other way. To this the colonies ob
ject just as they do to imperial fed
eration and the scheme ought to
remain in nubibus until they have al
tered their opinion as to its expedi
ency. I do not myself beneve that the re
duction would lead to so many'addi
tional letters being sent that the prew
ent receipts would not be affected.
The exchange of letters is based on
question and answer, and the longer
the interval between the two, the
fewer are the letters. Two friends
the one at home and the other in
Australia probably write to each
other rarely, compared with what
they would do if they lived within a
day's journey of each other. In some
cases the reduction in rate might lead
to more letters being written, but
this would, I think, be the exception
and not the rule. London Truth.
