A VERITABLE LITTLE BUCfe.
London Bridar? lo Oreeowlsh.
A young girl named Agnes Alice Beck
wit li," daughter of tho professor of swim
ming at Lambeth V \s, yesterday nc
complished the difficult feat of swimming
from London Bridge to Greenwich. The
distance is rather more than five miles,
and the time was remarkably fast-namely
th 7m. 45s. Mr. Beckwith has been con
nected with the Lambeth baths for nearly
a quarter of a century, and for fourteen
years held the proud position of champion I
swimmer o?* England. The heroine of
yesterday's proceedings is but fourteen
years old, of slim make and diminutive
stature. The object was to decide a wager j
of?60tp.?40 laid against her by Mr. Baylis,
the money being deposited with Heir s Life.
The event crented a great deal of excite
ment, and all along the route the progress
?f the swimmer was watched by excited
crowds on the wharfs ?nd barges. In ad
dition to tho London Steamboat Com
pany's Volunteer, a private steam launch,
and a rowing boat containing her father,
the referee, and some half dozen others
immediately interested in the result, a
perfect swarm of boats accompanied-and
indeed impeded-the swimmer the entire
distance. London bridge was crowded,
as were the vessels and other points
whence a view of the start could oe ob
MISS* BECKWITH DIVED
from thc rowing boajt at nine minutes to
five, and at once commenced a rapid side
stroke^which she maintained to the finish.
She was attired in a swinfming costume
?of light rose pink llama, trimmed with
white braid and lace of the same color.
The water was very smooth and the tide
running about three miles per hour.
Swimming about a couple of yards in the
rear of the referee's boat, Tunnel Pier was
reached at ll minutes past five. At
Horseferry dock (5:22) a salute was fired,
and the swimmer was encouraged with
lusty cheers. The Commercial dock was
quickly left behind, and soon after the
Hilda, on her return from Margate,
crowded with excursionists, passed the
flotilla. Plussing Millwall Miss Beckwith
crossed to the north side and took advan
tage of the strong tide. At this point
she was met by thc saloon steamer Vic
toria, whose passengers were vociferous
in their applause. The Foreign Cattle
market at Depford was breasted at twelve
minutes to six, and. as Greenwich hos
pital appeared in sight, the intelligence
was conveyed to the swimmer hy repeated
cheers, a salute being also fired from the
Unicorn. The pier at Greenwich and
the grounds of the shipyard were crowded
with people who cheered to the echo when
the spirited strains of "See the Conquer
ing Hero Comes" announced the success
oX the attempt. Miss Beckwith swam
nome distance beyond the pier, and was
taken on board at 5b. 58m. 45s., having
accomplished the distance, as stated above,
in lb. 7m. 45s.
She seemed almost as fresh as when she
started, and to all appearance was capa
ble of going considerably further.-Lon
The Horrors of Civil War.
The following extract from a letter ad
_dressed.,by" the Carlist General Castella
to Colonel dc Oharctte is handed to us
by the London Carlist committee for
publication. The writer had command
of the fortifications at Villareal during
the recent engagement :
" I have during my life witnessed some
very sad scenes of war, and I thought I
bad seen the summit of human misery
in the retreat of the army of the east
(in 1870), of which I commanded the
rear guard. But I can, not recall^any
impression which can be compared ^wTin
--- ..theJeeling which I experienced on enter
ing -w^th Brigadier Valluerca, the princi
pal street of Villareal, when it was on
tire from, one end to the other. The
crackling of the flames whose red glare
struggled against the light of the mid
day sun, the heavy crash of windows
giving away and of roofs falling in, the
shrieks of frenzied women and the cries
of children who run with bare feet on
the ashes, the grim * despair of the old
men, as they gazed with dry eyes and a
fixed stare upon the scene, the impreca
tions of the Carlist soldiers as parties
_ rushed in hot pursuit of the incendiaries,
-?'' thc rattle of the musketry, all formed a
horrible spectale which baffles descrip
"I saw in?a side street, between two*
burning houses, a woman lying stretched
.out on a mattress, surrounded by little
children half naked, who were uttering
piercing cries. The atmosphere was un
bearable. The flames all but licked the
paths; the burning ruins were falling
down on all sides quite close to them ;
?nd this family, abandoned in confusion,
were about to be either roasted, or
crushed; I got off my horse, which was
dreadfully frightened by the Hames and
noise around, and I went up to where
the sick woman lay. She was paralized.
Her husband, a mule driver, was away.
Some soldiers carried her out of the
house liefore setting fire to it. The only
thing left her-and that by mere good
luck-was, the mattress pn which"she,
..was lying; The heat was-becoming more
andmore intense ; their faces were crim
.son; the children, in t li cir ?agony, re
' * doubled their ftbrieks ; their poormother,
as she looked at them,, weeping^anikenfl
ing the holy. Virgin-bo her aid. What
could be more heartrending than this
picture, framed as it werje y\ fire."-Bon
Halo Around the Sun.*
Newspapers printed in Syracuse,
Utica, Scnnectady, and Troy, N. Y.,
Rutland^ Vt., and Laconia, N. H., make
mention of a rcmakable halo which was
seen around the sun on a late Sunday.
Tho^yracuse Journal thus describes-it :
m Shortly after ten o'clock a complete lu
m i nous circle around the sun, of the col
ors of tho-rainbow was seen, ?nd at the
same time, in, the east, a eegment of bril
liant rainbows, with another scarcely less
distinct iii the south, and, directly over
head, severals concentric rings like** their
counterpart, the main circle about the
sun, were also visible. This phenome
non continued \ in much brilliancy for
about half an hour, and for an hour the
halo about the snn Wa?distinctly, though
lees brilliantly visible. During a part of,
tho time, the sun's disc was^travcrsed by
a vertical band of white, aiid the circle
around' the1 sun inclosed an elliptical
band of white, whose extreme length ex
tended from one inner side^to the other
f tho circle, northerly?? and fsoutherly.
With th? aid of a smoked glass these
various bows were distinctly to be seen, <
but to the nuked eye the spectacle was ?
oppressive. The 1K>W in tue east and i
south were in opposition to the ring i
about the sun (like the ordinary rain- ;
bow,) but only a small part of either of
the arches were visible.
GERMANY ON THE OCEAN
Her HUI Tor du- N'nvnl nml Commercial
Nnprcnmry or Hie World.
The opcnly-avowd policy of the Ger
man Government in building up a navy
corresponding to the vast militarystrengtii
of the umpire, and capable of competing
with the great maratime powers of En
rope, in veil ves issues of thc very greatest
importance to the whole commercialworld.
To the government and people of England
this policy involves the most momentous
consequences. Against Germany as a
mere military power, that government
can afford to be indifferent. With lier
vast fleet she is all but impervious to the
colossal military strength of the conti
nental nations. But as against a naval
and commercial Germany the conditions ,
are. entirely changed. In that contin
gency the points of attack and defence arc
reduced to an equality. It bas long been
a maxim that commercial and naval power
followed in the track of military power,
and Germany seems likely to afford the
world another illustration of this fact.
We can therefore well understand the
scarcely concealed anxiety of English
writers and statesmen at the prodigious
development Of the naval resources of
Germany that has taken place during the
last ten years. And now with the pres
tige and advantages derived from her re
cent victories the same policy is pursued
with all thc vigor and determination
characteristic of* the great Bismacrk.
The real object of her immense arma
ments is the building up of li naval and
commercial marine that will enable Ger
many to take a commanding position ?is
a commercial nation. That they will
really add anything to the effective mili
tary strength of the empire, is scarcely
pretended. In addition to these arma
ments, with which it appears Germany
ought to be content, there always looms
up the danger of a sudden political com
plication that will enable Germany to ac
quire the control of Belgium and Holland.
But it will be seen that Germany pushes
with remorseless tenacity the idea of com
mercial supremacy, and there seems no
good reasons why it should not attain it.
To Great Britain theses changes involve
the most momentous consequences. They
strike at the-very root of the commercial
prosperity of that country. With the
entire coast line opposite to England in
the hands of a competing power, it is easy
to see that the commercial prestige of
England would undergo a shock from
which it would he slow to recover.

The Heroine of Newport.
Ida Lewis' latest exploit in pulling out
from Lime Rock light-house in the lower
New'i>ort harlxir Thursday, and rescuing
a man from drowning, recalls the earlier
achievements which have gi von her the
title of "the Grace Darling of America."
She first came into prominence in 18G(>,
when on one of the coldest and musTlihis
tering days ever known in this latitude,
?he saved thc life of a soldier' who liad
started for a sail on the harbor in a light
skiff. One day, in the authmn of 18f>7,
while a terrible gale was raging, two men
set out 'o cross the hajbor with several
sheep. jd in trjhjlg/to rescue one that
had fallen overboard, came near swamp
ing their boa$ seeing their peril from the
wigrlow^rjfiier father's light-house, Miss 1
Lewis went to their aid, and, after land
ing them safely, went baek and rescued
the sheep. But her greatest exploit was
performed on the 29th of March, ?1869,
when a boat containing two young sol
diers and a boy was struck by a sq mill on
the harbor and overturned. Though ill
at the time, Ida rushed out of the house,
launched her life-boat, sprang in, with !
neither hat on her head nor shoes on her
feet, reached the wreck jiiBt in time to i
save the two sailors as they were about
loosing their hold from exhaustion, the j
boy having meanwhile perished, and
rowed them to the light-house. Miss
Lewis should be among the first to receive
the new "decoration to be bestowed by
congress for heroic deeds in saving life.
AN ARGUMENT FOR RELIGIOUS TOL
?RANCE.-The following is a character
istic incident in thc life of Deacon Bolles,
who was an eminent tyj>e of the age in
which he lived, for personal and private
worth, both as a man and Christian.
When the Baptists of Hartford began
to hold public service, an over zealous
member of Dr. strong's society called
upon him and asked him if he knew that
John Bolles had started an opposition
" No," said he, " when, where?"
"Why, at the old court-house."
" Oh yes, 1 know it," thc doctor care
lessly- replied, "but it is not an opposi
tion meeting. They are Baptists, to be
sure, but they preach thc same doctrines
that I do. You had better go ?nil
hear tnem. " No, said the man, " I am
"So am I," rejoined Dr. Strong; "but
?hat need not prevent us from wishing
them^vell. You had better go."
"No," jain tho man with energy, " I
shan't go near tlicy?. Dr. Strong ain't
you going to do somethffig about it?"
"What?" - - . ?
"Stop it, can't you?" .
"My friend," said the doctor, seri-'
ously, " John Bolles is a good mnn, and
will surely go *o heaven. If you and I
fet there we shall meet him, and wc had
etter, therefore, cultivate a pleasant
acquaintance with him here."
-Bismarck wrote to his wife in July,
1851: "The day before yesterday I v/ent
to Wiesbaden, and kooked with a mixture
of sadness anti premature wisdom at thc
scenes of* my former follies. If only it
would please "God to fill up with clear
strong wine the vessel in which at twenty
one the muddy champagne of your^h
frothed up to so little purpose * * * How
many of those* with whom I flirted and
drank and gambled are now underground.
What changes my views of life have un
dergone in the fourteen years that Jmve
elapsed sincc'tRajb time, ea/;h in its tlyrn
seeming to me the correct one; how much
that I then thought great now# appears
small; how much now seems ^honorable
i which;! then despised!"
No EHST KOP. THE WICKED.-A mer
chant belonging to Buiscn, near Cologne
Miva the FranSeurter Zeitung, whose five
editors and publishers are in prison for
offences against the press,-was recently
summoned before the German tribunals
for having during bis sleep, uttered some
words which reflected on the character of
Prince Bismark. He was sleeping in a
room at a tavern, and when he awoke the
muster ol' the establishment told him he
had insulted the imperial chancellor. A
third person, it appears, who had heard
thc dreaming man, went immediately to
the police ofliee ami gave information,
upon which the unconscious offender was
at once arrested and put on trial. No
sentence was passed on him; hut the
president of the court remarked with se
verity that thc accused had only te thank
himself for the inconvenience to which he
had been subjected, because if he were
not na enemy of Prince Bismark, ho ought
not during liis sleep to have insulted the
benefactor of Germany. The story reads
almost like a hoax, hut its appearance in
so respectable ajournai as thc Frankfurt

-Ile Wits a lodger in an unpretentious
brooklyn boarding house, and for several
days the landlady's daughter, a sentimen
tal maiden of 35, had teased him to write
something in her album. Ile at last con
sented, and penned- the following: "As
the hostility to dogs diminishes, the qual
ity of hash improves." An explanation
was added in these words: "I never could
make rhymes, Miss (Jiles, and when I
write poetry I have to express it in prose."
-The good old days when four or five
hand fire engine companies came out and
mauled each other aroa nd while the house
hurtled down will be lamented hy every
