in the House, ol Representatives, on

suspended in order that opportunity
be given for tribute to the memory of
tho late Joseph U. Ivirle, of this city,
a Senator from South Carolina. The
customary resolutions were Introduced
by lion. William Klliott, of the Firs'
District, who tfuve a most accurate
and appropriate sketch of the life and
services of Senator Barle, with whom
ho was intimately assoolated for many
years. He was followed in earnest

sachusetts, James T. McCleary, of
Minnesota, J. Wm. Stokes, James
Norton and Stanyarno Wils, n, of South
Carolina. The remarks of Dr. Stokes
aro herewith appended in fu'l :
Mr. Speaker: We do most honor
ourselves when we bestow upon the
honored dead the jiist meed of praise.
For the purposes of earthly existence
that (.raise, however high and how
ever worthily bestowed, is powerless
to benefit, the departed spirit. The
wort1 of praise aud appreciation spar
ingly uttered or wholly withheld when
it would have been priceless for in
spiration to noble achievement falls
now upon deaf cars. Tho pulses that
might have thereby been thrilled with
noulcr aspiration are now dull and i:n
responslve. And yet it is not a fruit
less function that we perform to day.
The tribute bestowed upon the
worthy diad, like the quality of mercy,
blesses the giver as well as the bone
loiary. Our own hearts and minds
are chastened and subdued by these
solemn pauses in tho absorbing pur
suits of active life.
In tliis U8|)C0t alone thoy arc well
worth the tune expended. But there
id another use, lot us hopo.
Powerlosa us they uto upon the dead
for Inspiration or achievement, but
Potentin their re Hex upon ourselves ;
Ihey may be evon more potent for com
fort, for consolation to the family and
friends, Tlioy may even prove, fruit
ful of high ideals in the minds of
younger men?ideals of thought, ideals
of activity, Ideals of Christian living.
Mr. Speaker, it whs not my fortune
to know Senator liarle intimately.
Our-lives bad lew points of tangenoy,
unusually few for men in active public
si rviee in the same State. The circles
of our tllieial functions touched but
seldom : those of our social and per
sonal almost never.
Wo differed widely upon political
questions of absorbing interest. Each
W88 an active partisan of his particular
school of thought, but always under
the lojls of the gteat Democratic or
ganization. From this aspeet it might
be proi er and natural for mo to con*
line myself to seme silent testimonial
of eorrow for the untimely death of
our fallen brother. Somesllont tribute
of respect for bis memory, some mute
lender of sympathy to the loved ones
eft behind, might till the measure of
easonable expectation?leaving to
',()-?? who knew him well the sad
lOUgh grateful task of portraying bis
Hut, Mr. Speaker, there is another
and a different aspect. While S na*
tor Harle did not belong to mo in the
sense of personal friendship, yet. in a
wider sense, as a distinguished Caro
linian, one who has contributed a
worthy page to the history of our State,
he is the property of all Carolinians,
and I am hero to-day to testify to the
country that ho has a sure abiding
place in the esteem and allection of
all factions and all parties in his own
State. In a stiil broader sense, as a
patriotic American, as u noble expo
nent of Christian citizenship, ho has
become the property of us all. His up
right life in public station and in
private walk bus become a part of the
rich heritage of our common country.
The measure of tho richness of that
heritage it is tho high privilege of bis
colleagues in the House and Senate to
unfold to the country at large, in the
presence of this public sorrow, this
public calamity, wo stand with heads
bowed : yet our hearts are aglow with
generous pride over the triumphs of
our fallen comrade. In this presence
wo forget all differences; we bury for
ever ail personal rivalries and animosi
ties, and turn away from the contem
plation of all save the ennobling lessons
of a noble life.
1 have said that I bad little oppor
tunity for personal test and study at
close range of this character of Senator
Karle. That is true in a literal sense ;
and yet I have touched his tanfjent?,
fco to speak, at many points. Olio
thing has impressed me particularly,
the uniformity of the impression he
made upon those who came into per
sonal contact with him. That impres
sion must frequently found expression
in a uniformity of Utterance,
"Ho is a high-minded man" or a
" high man " seemed to bo the form of
expression spontaneously suggested in
tho minds of most people ; and tho
genuineness Of tho quality which it
expressed was attested in tho most
practical and searching way, in this,
that in .he midst of heated political
campaigns, when party and factional
feeling ran high, no man, however
bitterly opposed, over charged or, I
think, for a moment sorlou ly thought
of dishonesty or dishonor in the same
connection with this man.
Again, Air. Speaker; the ran; quality
of tin1, man was concretely evidenced
in Hie fact Unit though Senator Barle
In 1800 led tho moat vigorous and ag
gressive assaults upon what was mani
festly a ground swell of public opinion,
yet within four years he was elevated
to tho honcli on the crest of that name
popular vhvo before which ho had
formerly gone down.
That he should In 180<*> havo been
Ohosen by popular vote in the primaries
of bis party its his party's candidate
for United States Senator hut com
plete* the circle of a remarkable poli
tical career. Hut his political career,
remarkable as it was, I shall notdwcii
upon. Itl.tis been minutely portrayed
by others. I prefer to spend the few
moments that I shell occupy the floor
In holding up those characteristic
qualities which constituted the per
sonality of tho man.
Several trait* contributed to tho ap
paront transformation of public senti
ment referred to. Of the minor traits
perhai'b none paved tbt) way more fully
to this, remarkable ronais-anoe. of pop
ularity than ti e. unifoim sincerity and
courtesy of tho man. Ho wielded the
keen edge of sarcasm and ridicule with
the deft hand of a Saladin : but in (he
fiercest contest of partisan heat hu
rarely lost his suavity of manner, and
never within my knowledge did ho fail
in dlgnilicd courtesy. Above tho tur
moil of excitement that surged around
him, his spirit was sereno and kindly.
Ab some lall elilT which rears its awful
Swells from the vale and midway braves
Though round its breast the rolling clouds
Eternal sunshine settles on its head.
Yet bo was not lacking in spirit.
Nom onicker than ho to respond to
studier'. oIToppo. Tho only occasion
upon which hoard him speak luring
the heaud e*?u-,? *ign of 1800 prose nted
tust suol' an In ban.ee. In tho midst of
ils speech someone in the audlonoe
mako a remark whion he, Sonator
K ii Ig (theo attoruey-goneral of tho
State and a candidate for gov :roor),
coiiotruod a?t tell, cling upon nid integ
rity. Prompt ttu tho report after ttio
Hash, and sharp as tlio oraok of a pid
tolf caino Hio rcspoiibO. Vet uouo .vas
readier than be iu make amend when
tho offense was withdrawn.
Another thing has Impressed me,
Mr. Speaker, us l have touened the
lived of those Who have boon iu touch
with tho lifo i 1 Senator Kane ; that is
ttie firm hold ho held upon tho con
fidence and love of the ChrUtlao deno
mination to which ho subscribed bib
frith. More than once have 1 been
surprised to Und tho namo of Joseph
li Karle honored in the home clr lo of
a bumble mom bor of the Boptlst
Church. Honor d as a soldier ? Y< s.
Honored BS an emin, at lawyer ? Yes.
[louored as a jurist atiu j*. i judge?
Y. B, all this: and then I thought there
was a tenderer element In the inceuse of
uonor to Liu name as a Christian states*
I man and exponent of Baptist culture,
integrity, an 1 tiJi. lily.
Such recognition, abiding in tho
breasts of his eo-religionista living in
the byways q iUe us frequently as when
living on the thoroughlares of thought
and activity, constitutes, in my judg
ment, the highest possible attestation
to the quality of tho man.
Mr. Speaker, there can bo no worthier
epitaph written of any man than that
which is written iu the hearts of the
bumble a thousandfold more than
that reflected In tho plaudits of tho
II 1 were to attempt to sum up in one
term the quality which lay at the j
foundation of the character of Senator
Karle. 1 could lind no litter term than
the single word faithful?faithful to
social obligations, to political obliga
tions, to public obligations, to private
obligations, to family obligations, and,
back of all, faithful to his obligations
to bis God. In this last consisted tho
secret of 1> is power, as it has constituted
the secret ol ail truo power, of highest
power, in all the aged.
The fathers, iu framing our langu
age, recognized this elementary fact.
In rll the experience of the past, full
ness of faith In God has ever been the
condition of highest fidelity to human
trust and responsibility. Tho man
who hac; had most faith In God ha9 ex
hibited highest fidelity In ail relations
to bis fellow-man. And so it has come
about that the effeot has its name from
tho e(DoleUt cause. Tho faithful man
primarily is the man full of fuith in I
Air. Speakers, this is tho noblest
lesson, the. most valuable message that i
comes buck from the mute lips of our
dead colleague to those of us who sur
I have every rouson to believe that
the full faith in God which inspired I
and sustained fidelity to all duty and
trust inspired and sustained him in
eis last earth'y moments. It could not
be otherwise. The faith that had
illumined the pathway of duty in pub
lic station and in private walk must
also huve illumined bis pathway
through the dark valley into the bright
plains of celestial Lot mortality. The
same creative hand that implanted
that faith in his breast, and tilled his
breast with immortal aspiration, still I
reigns, and He is just. The existence 1
of the faith, the abidlug presence of j
the hope, is the highest guarantee of
the fulfillment of that hope.
Strong Son of Uod, immortal Love,
Whom we that have not seen Thy face
My faith and faith alone embrace,
Believing when we can not prove;
Thine are these orbs of light and shade;
Thou madest liie in man ani brute;
Thou raadest death ; and I". Thy foot
Is on the skull which Thou bast made.
Thou will not leave us in the dust;
Thou madest man, be knows not why;
H e thinks he was not made to die;
Anil Thou ha.-t made bim ; I llOU art just.
Mr. Speak r, this is tho message
borne back to us from his silent tomb.
Let us profit by tho message and the

Mr. Sneaker, in one of the most
oeautiful prose poems ever conceived,
Longfellow portrays the bitterness,
tho sorrow, tho gloom, the hopeless
desolation of one whose life companion
had been snatched away from his side.
His wanderings finally led him (by

poses and unothor of mariners tor uav
igating duties. lu cot sequence, a
largo number of English sei terms
bave a military origin.
At that time, tho rank of admiral
was unknown, and the chief ollicer of I
the squadron was called a constable, or '
justice. The term admiral as now used |
is derived from the Arabic "amir," or j
"emir," a commander In 'Amir-al- I
Bahr" commander of the sea.) The
early ISngllsb form was "amiral" and
is still preserved as such by the
The title captain is not a naval, but
a military one. Originally, the real
captain of a ship was "master." A mil
itary ollicer was pine d on board,
though he knew nothing of the nauti
cal matters. Gradually Iiis importance
increased, while that of the master
diminished proportionately till at the
present day the master's otlice is
gradually becoming obsolete. Com
modore comes from the Spanish "co
Tho title of lieutenant is borrowed
directly from the French, and is meant
as a place holder, or one who to k the
place of the captain when absent. In
termer days there were not cadels bat
volunteer?, but with t 10 gradual ad
vance of politeness, the term cadet was
appropriated from the French.
Boatswain is derived from the Saxon
"swein," a sei vant. The term quarter

peal's to De confusing and anomalous.
In the army it is the title of a commis
sioned ollicer who performs Important
and responsible duties. In the navy
ho is simply a warrant ollicer directing
subordinate duties. In old ships, and
in olden limes his position was a more
important one; so much so that be was
considered to be the lourth part of the
master?hence the term quartermas
Tho. ship's cook was once, a groat j
man, and there are instances on record
of ills being promoted for ellieient
preparation of food. The ship's stew
ard was originally caterer.
Tho terms larboard and starboard
come from the Italian "questa board a"
and "queMa boarda," which by rapid
delivery became starboard and lar
board ; but owing to the strong simil
arity of sound they were changed into
starboard and por' (Latin porto, to

not in use.

a lazy, cowardly fel'ow.
Anchor comes from the Latin ' an

The peculiarity of so many portions
of a ship's rigt'inir bearing names do
rived fiotn the trappings of a horse can
only be accounted for from the fact
that tho early warships wore manned
by soldiers as well as sai'ors, tho nat
ural consequenoo being that they, tho
? sailors, adapted s>ome of their terms to
meet their l. p y. Among tho various
I rop.'s, etc , will bo found bridles, whips.
j bits, stirrups, and the like;.
J'lio old b u. well known son term
grog was originated by u term of de
rision und disgust when Admiral Vorn
on, in 1745, introduced the wise innova
tion of making his crew drink their
spirit ration diluted with water instead
of meat, as they bad hitherto done.
The sailors did not like the watery
business, and in revenge nicknamed
the ailmiral "Old Grog" and bis diluted
mixture as grog', from the fact tl at he
generally wore an overcoat of a color
then known as grog ram gray.

New York Mail anil Kx press, the
votaries of electrical science "express
their feelings now and then in singular
ways. O.ic gentleman has in his
sitting room in this city a revolving
glass dish with cushions which gene
rate electric sparks. When the

and she believes that it exerts b.-neli

brain, inducing sound sleep and
strengthening all tho tissues of her
body." No wonder originator of such
fakes as electric belts, shots, etc.,

THE ISLAND OV CUBA.
A Comprehensive Description of tho
Country mul iis Itesourocs?The
Great Variety ol its I'roduota.
Tho island of Coin* Is situated in the
Caribbean Sou: it is tho largest und
most western of tho group called the
West Indies, and its western extremity j
terminates at tho entrance to the Gulf 1
I of Mexico, midway between Florida
j and Yucatan. Cubu is 111 miles from I
tho latter peninsula, UU from that of
Florida, 105 from Jamaica and r> from
The conliguration of tho island is
very irregular, resembling Bomowhat
tho aroof a circle. Its greatest length,
from east to west, is 1,12s in lies,
und its entire court lino, 1,710. Its
greatest breadth, in its eastern part,
is ab >ut 1 tm miles : Its least, hi the oi o
viiicc of Havana, miles, und Us
average breadth 50 miles.
Around tho island arc innumerable
islets, keys and hanks, many ol ?vbieh
are teparattd from the coast b,y nartow
straits, greatly faoiliting navigation
for small vessels of little draught, but
rendering it on the other hand Im
possible in some places anil CXtrutUOly
dangerous in others for Vessels of muco
Along the coast, ehe Ity on the south
ern side of the island, ..??e extensive
tracts of land in process of formation,
covered in some places with u species
of brushwood called manglares. which
are the source of a profit iblo industry,
tho bark, which is rich in tannin,
being used for tanning. These land-,
are inundated at high tide, bat, being
left bare, when the water recedes, toe
air is contaminated by tho vegetable
matter, rotted by the action of the
water, producing marsh and other in
fections fevers Fortunately, their
malefic action is limited to the region
inundated, o ving to the sea beet /. s
and the land winds, which constantly
purify anil cool the atmosphere of the
in other parts of the island, instead
of manglares, there arc low lands,
which are Inundated during tin: rains,
in which springs id fresh wati r
abound. They are covered with slpo
ranns lud other aquatio plants, and, at
uttle cost, arc drained and util /. d for

rocks rest upon others of slaty forma

they are combined with the slate nod
