On my way across tho Sound I foll
in with two old sea-captains-John
Stroctcr and Asa Mot ton-with whom
I bad sonni slight acquaintance Street
er was ?bout three-score, and had fol
lowed tho sea during most of his lifo.
Morton was considerably youngor, but
still n .seaman of muon experience.
Tho subject of tho abolition of Hogging
in our navy cunio up in course of con
versation, and Captain Moi ton express
ed himself very decidedly in favor of
keeping up that time-honored institu
tion, tho cat-o'-ninu-tails.
"I nm not proparod to say," remark
ed Captain Streeter in reply, "that tho
condition of our incn-o'-wars-men will
bo in every case benefited by tho abo
lition of Hogging, though 1 am sino
that it might bo so. 1 moan that tho
officers have it within their power to
do away with nearly all kinds of pun

tillen .f, as aro usually punished on

should not caro to take command of a
ship if tho power to punish refractory
seamen as I thought proper Wore taken
"Woll," resinned Captain Streeter,
"I used to think just so. lu fact, there
wore few masters moro passionate or
?overo thai! I was. Men used to run
away from me, and, on more than ono
occasion, my very lifo has been in dan*
ger hom the vengeance of men whom
I hail abused. I used tho cat and tho
lope's-ond almost as freely as 1 used
my tongue; and I often wondered how
it happened that 1 always had tho luck
to get such bad men.
"When I was about forty years of
ugo I look command of the ship Peters
ham. Site was tm old craft, and had
seen full as much service as shu was
capable of seeing with safely; hut hor
owners were svtlling to trust a valuablo
cargo in her, so 1 would not refuse to
trust myself. We were bound to Liv
erpool, and nothing unusual happened
until about the eighth day out, when
wo ran foul of a small iceberg. It was
carly in lite morning, before sunrise,
anti not above ?ix or oight feet of tho
ice was out of the water, it having
been nearly all melted away in the
warmer water of the Uulf-stroam. i
did not think that wo had sustained
any injury, for tho shock was very
?light; but I was angry, mid gave tho
look-out a severe punishment, without
stopping to inquire whether ho co.dd
haVO seen the berg in season to escapo
"My cabin-hoy was named Jack
Withers, lie was fourteen years of
ngo, and tills was his li rsl voyage. I
had taken hun from a widowed moth
er, ami had promised her that I would
seo him well treated--that was, if ho
buln ved himself. Ho was a bright,
quick, intelligent lad i hut 1 soon mado
my-cit believe that he had au awful
disposition. I fancied that he was tho
most stubborn piuco of youthful hu
manity Uiat 1 hail ever come across. I
made up my mind that ho bad never
been proporly governed, and I forth
with resolved to break him in. I told
bim Pd curb his temper for him belora
I had dono with him. In reply ho told
mo that I might kill him if I liked; and
I flogged him with tho end of tho mi/.
/.on-topgallant halliard* till ho could
hardly stand. I asked him if ho had
had enough, and ho tobi mo that I
might flog moro if I wished it. I felt
a strong temptation to throw tho boy
ovorboard, but nt that moment ho
staggorcd back against tho mizzen
mast from absolute weakness, and I
left him to himself. Whoa I reasonod
calmly about that boy's disposition I
was forood to acknowledge that ho was
ono of the smartest and most faithful
lads 1 lind over soon. When 1 asked
him to do anything he would start off
Uko a rocket; but when I roughly or
dorcd him to do it, then came tho dis
position with which I found fault.
..Ono day, when it was very near
noon, I spoko to him, and told him to
go below and bring up my quadrant.
Ho was looking ovor tho quarter-rail,
and I know that ho did not hoar mo,
and tho next timo I spoko I ripped out
an oath, and intimated that if ho didn't
move I'd holp bim.
" 'I didn't hoar ye,' ho said, with
rathor an Independent tono.
" 'No words,' said I.
" *I a'poso I cnn spenk,' ho retorted,
moving slowly towards tho companion
"His look and Ids words, and tho
?low, careless manner in which ho
moved, firod mo in a moment, and I
grasped him by tho collar.
" .Speak to mo again like that,' said
I, 'and I'll flog you within an inoh of
M ?You oan flog away,' he ropliod, os
firm ami undaunted as a rock.
.'And 1 did Hog him. I caught up
the end of tho first ropo that carno
handy, and bent him till my arm
fairly ?ohed. But bo nover oven

?Thore'e a littlo moro lifo In mo

""And I beat him again. 1 beat lum
till h? sank from myliand against tho
rall; and then 1 sent one of tho men
after my quadrant. When lt cn nw,
Abd I had adjusted it for my observa
tion, 1 found that the eua wu? already
past tlio meridian, mid that I was too
lute. Tliis added fuel to tho lire of luv
lUdd0088, and quickly seizing tho lad
by thc collar, 1 lcd him to tho main
hatchway and had thu ii atoll taken otb
1 then thrust him dowai, mid swore
that 1 would keep him there until his
stubbornness was broken* Tko hatch
was thou put on, and 1 wcut into tho
cabin. 1 Buffered a good deal that af
ternoon- not with nny compunctions
for what I had done, but with my own
temper and bitterness. It mudo mo
mad to think that 1 could not conquer
taut boy-that i could not break down
Iiis cool, stern opposition, "lint 1 will
do it,' 1 said to mysolf. 'Hy thc hcav
0U8 abOVO inc, I'll starve lum into it, or
iic shall die tinder tim operation!'
"After supper 1 wont lo the hu toll
way ami called out to him, but ho re
turned ino no answer. .So 1 closed tho
hatoh and went away. At len o'clock
I called ngaltl, and again I got no an
SWOr. 1 might havo thought the Hog
ging had taken away his senses had
not somo of tho mon assured nie that
they had heard him, not an hour be
fore, talking to himself. 1 did not
trouble him again until the next morn
ing; but 1 went lo tho hatchway after
broakfii8t and called out lo him OUCO
more. 1 hoard nothing from him, nor
could 1 see him; 1 laut not seen him
since 1 pul him down there. 1 called
out several times, but ho would make
mo no answer; anil yet the same men
loki me that they had heanl him talk
that very morning. Ho seemed to bo
calling tor them to help him. Ho would
ask them for help, bul he would not
ask me. 1 meant to break him into it.
'He'll beg boforo he'll star vc," I
thought; and so I determined that ho
should stay there. 1 supposed .he hail
crawled forward lo the forecastle bulk
head iu order to make tito sailors hear
him. Somo of tile men asked to bo
permitted to go down and look after
him, hut I refused. I threatimod to
punish tho lirst man who dared to go
"At noon I went airain, and as ho
did not answer me Ibis time, 1 resolved
thal he should como to tho hatchway
and ask for ino ere 1 went any moro.
Tho day passed away, ami when even
ing came again 1 began to bo startled.
I thought of how many good qualities
the boy bad ; and 1 thought of his
widowed mother. He had been thirty
six hours in tho hohl, and fully forty
hours without food or drink. He must
bo too weak to ery out now. It was
hard for me to givo up, but if the boy
died there from absoluto starvation, it
might go bardia1 with me still. So al
length i made up my mind to go and
sec him. lt was nol ipiite sundown
when I liad the hatch taken off, and 1
jumped down upon tho boxes alone.
A little way toward I saw a space
wiiero Jack might have gono down,
and to that point I crawled on my
bands and knees. I called out here,
but could hear no answer. A short
distance farther was a waler space,
which I had entiroly forgotten, but
which I now remembered had been left
open on account of a break in the
dooring of tho hold, which would have
lot anything that might have been
stowell there rest directly on the outer
planking of tho sh ip.
"To thu place I niado my way and
looked down. 1 heard tho splashing of
water, and thought I could detect a
sound liko tho incoming of a tiny jet
or stream. At tirst I could seo noth
ing, but as soon as I became used to
tho dim light I could distinguish tho
faint outlines of the boy at some dist
auco below me. Ho seemed to bo sit
ting upon ibo broken lloor, willi his
feet stretched out against a cask. 1
called out to him, and 1 thought ho
" 'Jack,' I said, 'aro you thereP'
"And ho answered mc, in a faint,
" 'Yos; holt) mc! For Heavon's sake,
help mo! Bring mon, and bringa lan
torn; tho ship has spruuk a leak!'
"1 hesitated, at.il he added in a moro
" 'Mako haste; I can hold it till you
"1 waited to hoar no more, but hur
ried on deck as soon as possible, and
returned with a lantern,and tlirco mon.
I loapod down beside the boy,and when
1 saw it all I could hardly beliovo tho
evidenco of my own souses. Th roo of
tho timbers wore completely worm-eat
en to tho very heart, and ono of tho
outer planks had boon brokon, and
would burst in at any moment tho boy
might loavo it. Ho ?at tlioro,? with his
back upon it and his foot braced against

men wore called down with planks and
spikes and adzes, and, with much care
and moro trouble, wo finally sucecedod
in stopping tho leak and avortiug the
danger. Tho plank which had boen

but I nursed him with my own hands -
nursed him till through his delirium;
and when his reason returned, and ne

before him, and humbly asked his pal

Wino may bc kept for various peri
ods; but good ordinary wino is never
better than at tinco or four yours old,
though it may koop sound for twenty
years, lt is now very dillicult to get
puro wino. Water is often added at
tho limo of pressing equal lo tho quan
tity of wino and fermented with it;
thus tho two bocoino blended, ami pure
alcohol added gives the strength. Peo
ple used lo pure wine can delect ut
once any adulteration. Once wo lidd
ed something to our own wino. There
had boon a very abundant crop of
grapes, owing to an unusual amount of
rain having lallen when tho grapes
were swelling. Tho amount of wino
was moro than one-third above ibo av
erage, and though clear and puro it
seemed weak. Wo thought it could
not stand a hot summer, and consulted
a local authority, who recommended a
hollie ol brandy, or maybe Iwo, to bo
added lo e.tea cask ot about 40gallons.
The advice was followed, and tho wino
was spoiled-thai is io say, tho pure
taste ol wino was gone, although il ro
maine.i perfectly sound, li was no
pleasure to di'ink it, timi wo consigned
il to ibo domestics. A small cask that
bad not been doctored or fortified kept
perfectly wed, and turned out au ex

from high ground, bul quantity gives
way to quality. Stony ground-often
old quarries-produces a high quality
