OR instances of individual daring of tho sublimest type we need not go farther than the pages of naval history of tho civil war. Cushing, the crow of tho Con federate Albe marle, the com mander and men of the Confederate r?i? " i- yrrrt l' iy ram Arkansas, the Confederate boarders of the Underwriter in tho North Carolina waters, the Union defenders of the Harriet Lane in Galveston harbor, the participants in the battle of 3Iobile these and many others deserve to live in history, not alone for the grand results accomplished, but because of their deeds of unexcelled brav ery. Tho Confederates, being on the de fensive, and for that reason having ample incentive to heroic outbursts, probably put on record more instances of individual dar ing than did their antagonists. They had the desperate end of the conflict to bear up. Unfortunately for history their records arc sparse, survivors of the hour have since passed away, and much is left to unau thenticated tradition. The story that follows, however, is true and it is substantiated in detail by records of undoubted truthfulness. Seven men, five being seamen of tho Confederate navy and one a captain of artillery and the other a lieutenant of infantry, volunteered for an enterprise that had been attempted five times and had met with disaster. On three occasions all hands had perished, and on one other seven out of eight, and again six out of nine had met death. Tho hazardous business was nothing less than being confined in a submarine boat, ex posed to a variety of dangers without one possible way of escape in case of disaster. The time was 1SG4, the scene Charleston harbor during tho formiOable operations of the powerful Union army and navy. The waters were full of Union blockaders and every foot of vantage ground around the harbor was either occupied or besieged by Union troops. The port was blockaded almost effectually, and many daring -attempts were made by the besieged to de stroy Union vessels by infernal devices. The New Ironsides was attacked twice, the second time receiving very serious damage. A companion vessel of the New Ironsides was the Ilousatonic, a noble new ship, ly ing in North channel and completely block ading that passage. If she could be re moved by stealth scores of blockade running vessels could pass in and out in a night, giving comfort to the beleaguered army and people of South Carolina. The several experiments in destroying vessels by torpedoes that had been made in the harbor pointed to the torpedo afloat as the proper method. The New Ironsides, which was so seriously damaged by a tor pado boat, had once stood for an hour over a fixed torpedo of 2,000 pounds of powder, but the wires connecting the torpedo with the shore would not work and the gunboat floated away safely. Soon after the Iron sides was successfully attacked (October, 1853) a little boat was brought by rail from Mobile and accepted by the Confederate commander, Gen. Beauregard, for Charles ton harbor. Beauregard was an engineer, a Gcientific fighter and believed in skillful methods, and promptly accepted the new machine, although she came with a forbid ding reputation. She was to plow the deep like a fish, but had no provision for storing air, and on an experimental trip in Mobile bay sunk and all her crew, eight men, were suffocated before they could bo rescued. That was disaster number one. Lieut. Payne, of the navy, soon found a volunteer crew of eight men and took charge of her for a series of experiments in the harbor, which wcro tragic in the extreme, but which by tho advancement of knowledge made amends for the dole of blood exacted. The new craft is known in history as tho "cigar boat." She was made of boiler iron, was SO feet long and 4 broad, Avith a vertical depth of 0 feet, approximately. Access was by two manholes covered by hinged caps having bull's eyes for steering purposes. While the vessel floated these caps wcro about a foot out of water. The propelling power was the hands of the crew, operating on a shaft b- means of cranks. On the exterior there were vanes or wings, that could be adjusted at any angle by interior manipulation, and when the boat was to move on even keel tho vanes were kept level. To descend at an angle of 10 degs. the vanes were fixed at that tingle and tho propeller put in motion. The re sistance of the water against the vanes caused the bow to dip and the boat to de scend on au inclined plane. By reversing the vanes the opposite direction could bo taken until surface was reached. A tube of mercury told just how far under water she was tit any time. The boat was designed to dive and pass under the war vessel it was- intended to destroy and drag a torpedo after, to be ex- A SPECKT DANGER, ploded by violent contact with the bottom tf the vessel as soon as it touched the keel. Lieut. Payne and his crew of eight men wero preparing the boat for an expe dition one night and had her at the wharf near Fort Johnson when the wave of a passing steamer washed over her and swamped her. Payne escaped, but the crew wave all drowned. She was raised and cleared of herxlead and Payne secured another crew, and she went down in the same manner at Fort Sumter wharf, Payne and two men escaping. It was plain that the cigar boat w-as simply a coffin. The craft had earned such a bad odor in Charleston harbor that it was dtcided to try her in new waters and she went to Stone river, where several succcsncl divis wero made. At last, however, she went down and did not come up, and after search it was found that she had got fast in the mud at the bottom and all on board had perished by suffocation. Onco more she was raised, the dead removed the fourth ghastly cargo from her iron bound hull and she returned to the harbor. Every disaster to the boat had had some thing about it that was held to be a warn ing for the future, and a new crewvventon board and resumed experiments. She dived beautifully, and, barring accidents, would carry a torpedo any where in the deep. One more accident led to a change of plan. For an experiment sha dived ua dariJi" Conicdjirata Tftlrizs: sh:uU in , FP f-4. ,-i((i a ritc PI 777 c?ttK bJ Chief, fouled a cable ana all or ner crew perished. When she was recovered one Lieut. George Ji Dixon, of the Twenty-first Alabama regiment, secured Gen. Beaure gard's permission to try the famous David against the Housatonic. Beauregard stip ulated that she should be rigged as a torpedo boat on the surface of the water and not as a submarine device. He be lieved that the water was too shallow in the harbor to admit of successful diving under a heavy ship. A spar was then set on the bow having a torpedo that would explode by concussion with tlife object aimed at. The new method of operation may hae seemed to lessen the danger, but in reality the boat had met disaster as often when on the surface as when submerged, and the chances of her riding the convulsive waves produced by a torpedo were very narrow. Yet, although some thirty men had perished in her, Lieut. Dixon found a crew ready to volunteer and destroy the Housatonic. Fivo of the crew were men of the navy Arnold Becker, James A. Wicks, F. Collins, Ridgway and C. Simpkins. They were joined by Capt. J. F. Carlsen, of the South Carolina artillery. The Housatonic was riding at anchor on the evening of Feb. 17, her officer of the deck, Master J. F. Crosby, pacing mechan ically to and fro, scanning around as far as the darkness it was 9 o'clock would per mit. Suddenly he saw about a hundred yards away what appeared to bo a plank moving swiftly toward his ship. It was so strange that, anxious though he was, he waited a short time before giving alarm over so contemptuous an object. Then he sounded tho cry, and all hands were called to quarters. But he was a few seconds too late. The little boat had sneaked along the beach the night before, and been hidden during tho day not far from the doomed vessel. Then in a twinkling she had dart ed out of hiding, eluded the lookouts, and even while the cry was sounding through the ship Lieut. Dixon rushed upon her sides and fired the torpedo. He struck forward of the mainmast, and the hole extended below the water line, sinking her in four minutes. Five men went down in her; the rest clung to the rigging and were rescued. But the "plank,"' as the Housatonic's officer called it, disappeared in the commotion of the waters. The fate of the crew could only A DA'vD. be surmised. The boat had set out secretly to destroy the Housatonic, but no one could tell the tale of her experience. There were other Davids in the waters, and hundreds of fixed and floating torpedoes in tho channels. Tho men of the Housa tonic could give no a&'ount of the affair other than the shadowy "plank" story, but whether the plank were an automaton, a floating torpedo impelled by cog work, or the missing "cigar boat," no one knew. It had disappeared with tho vessel de stroyed. After the war the secret came out; the "cigar boat" had justified her inventor. The wrecks of the harbor were cleared by divers, and while exploring the depths around the Ilousatonic they found tho rusty iron machine partially buried in drifting debris about a hundred feet away from the hull of the man-of-war, her prow pointing toward it. Of course her daring crew had paid the penalty and were se curely coffined inside. The Housatonic was one of the new war vessels. She was a screw sloop, mounting eleven guns, and Lad been in the South Atlantic squadron since 18G2. Her destruction was a warning to the whole fleet and an encouragement also to the Confederates, who after this made several efforts, some of them suc cessful. Notwithstanding the reality of this sub marine engine, such boats are at this date deemed chimerical, and popularly supposed to exist only in the brains of crazy invent ors or the imagination of romancers. Jules Verne puzzled and amused the read ing world with Capt. Nemo's strange craft in his "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." Gen. Lloyd Brice, in a recent satire on American defenselessness, brings into action a wonderful fish boat, invented and managed by au erratic shirt manufact urer, as though no sane man of science would waste time on a scheme of that nat ure. What has been considered a creation of fancy, however, has been proven a fruit ful reality, as in the case of this Charleston boat. Jules Verne's submarine vessel was cigar shaped, and recently a Spanish naval officer constructed a boat over which he had dreamed for many years. The Spanish government thought so well of the plan that the inventor, Lieut. Feral, was given the means to experiment, and his boat, El Peral, was successfully launched and made several trips, justifying the hopes of her projectors. This boat is a little more than double the size of the Confederate boat, being 74 feet long and 9 feet broad. She is fitted out as a torpedo boat, and can run six knots an hour under water. The torpedo boat had its origin in the ' civil war, and the Confederates developed I it to a greater degree than did their adver ! saries. Since that time all first class powers j have been experimenting, but no satisfac I tory result has been reached. There are at i present boats of three or four hundred tons armed with torpedoes, small boat3 carried upon Avar vessels to be lowered when in close quarters with the adversary, and a l coast torpedo boat, having its hull sub- merge:!. All of these are liable to detec ; tion and destruction by the enemy. The situation calls for a noiseless, invisible en I gine thft can work in all weather and at anv hour, day or night, as the Confed erate David was intended to do. The prob- I lem when solved will be by a submarine craft not unlike tho ill fated one whose story is ".old here. But surely no contriv ance of this character ever had more de voted adherents, more venturesome and painstaking operators than the "cigar boat" of Charleston harbor. Geo. L. Kil:jeu.

There are alwavs exam ples of these birds in the insect house at the Zoo, and they repeat various phrases with great clearness of utter ance. Curiously enough, the hen has a gruff voice, while the cock speaks in a clear high tone, like that of a child. The mynahs can be easily provoked into showing off their power of speech, and will greet the visitor wMtb "Gtskl morn ing"' in response-to his sahnatwcs. The mynah is a kind of starling-, and this latter bird is well known fer its imita tive powers.
