Thirty.« re yearn ago no -better ship sailed the salt ocean!than the Constantia, and no better ootefrander ever walked the deck than Captain Raymond Harris. His usual voyages were to South Araeri and back to Boston; and, in nearly of these I had the good fortune to sail with him as first officer. Wt had a long passage from Boston Lima on one of these voyages and were ordered back to Boeton as soon as the ship could be discharod and reloaded. Our voyage was a pleasant one until we entered the northern latitudes, when our thick jackets were speedily put in qui8ition. We were but a few miles sonth of Cape Ann, when we had completed rangements. It was very calm, and the sun set clear; bat there was a coppery hus at the west that we did not like. More sail was set, hoping to run some safe harbor before the storm, which was so quietly yet so certainly brewing, should come in its might. The hope was in vain. The ship forty minutes more was lying in the trough of the sea. with foresail and main sail split inte strings, and the terly helpless to repair or prevent any afll damages: Nothing but ruin and death stared us in the face. The decks were a mass of slippery Ice, stud wat*r that was rapidly freezing, in which the men were sometimes standing to the top of their great boots. One little fellow, scarse fifteen, a slight delicate boy, named Oilbert]Harding,was striving to imitate the "old salts" in their composure and bravery. The captain had ordered him to go below; but he had begged so pitifully not to bo left there alone, that he hadreveked the decree and allowed him to come on deck for a short time. The sailor's voices, when they spoke him, were softened to a half tenderness that was touching to hear. One of them, blunter than the rest, said : "Gilbert, what do you think your mother is doing now?" A tear started to the boy's eye, but he manfully resistedjweeping and answered in a low voice ; "She is singing; she always is at this hour; and to-night her song will be : ( ■ our ar crew '•Star of God! when winds arc mocking All his prayers, he'll fly to thee ! Save him though on dangers rocking Far—far at sea !" I knew by the way the sailors hushed their roagh voices to a whisper, how ten* der they felt toward this child, so gentle, so tougbtful of Ills mother, so reverent his God. The single hope that the storm migh? soon abate was fast leaving us. Every moment we were nearing the rocks, and expecting to hear the terrible crash that would part our already disabled vessel into fragments. It came at last—a dull, harsh grating, a creaking, gToaning, in describable noise, that seat a shiver despair into every heart; and then she parted amidships and fairly broke into pieces. For myself I knew no more. Some thing cold, hard and heavy touched my head, aud I swayed to the deck beneath its chilling weight. When I awoke from that dreadful torpor I was sheltered in an old ruined rope-walk that stood just above the line ot the beach—left • for dead ! While my body was so weak (hat could not lift a linger, my mind active that I could not stay to arrange ything that had already occurred, but hastened on the result. I should fall asleep, I imagined, aad my living frame, powerless and inert, would be carried away to a tomb, where 1 might again re vive to new horrors. I was relieved of this burden of dread by the entrance of two gentlemen, who at once attracted me by the spirit of benevolent sympathy that diffused itself, as it were, all over them. "Great God!" exclaimed the taller of the two, a noble-leoking man; "look here, Ashley! This youug boy is not dead !" A young boy ! I could not turn my head, but I felt that thie must be the Gilbert so beloved by our captain. The gentleman continued : "Here, Ashley, take this brandy flask from my pocket. I put it there last night, tbinkinr it might be wanted." A faint choking sound told me that it had taken effect. Then a weak but sweet voice, that sounded like music' to my ears, said : "Where is Captain Harris ? where is Mr. Howard ?" The moment my name was called the ■pell was broken that had been set upon my faculties. I feebly moved my arm toward the spot whence the sound pro ceeded, satisfied that it was Gilbert's voice that uttered it. "Heavens! Ashley, look there!" ex claimed the one whom he had called Dean, and the latter instantly approach ed me. A draught from his flask revi ved me still further. "Call some one, Ashley. These poor fellows must have warm blankets, and fee errried to the hotel." We were taken to Ashley's Hotel as tenderly as if we were infants; and as all the other beds were full, Mrs. Ashley offered hers. It was a warm, comforts ble room, with a blazing fire upon the hearth. I lay there, my eyes fixed on Mrs. Ashley's face, for hours, as she sat by the fire. Something in her counte nance seemed so familiar that I longed to address her as a friend. My childhood was a lonely one. My parents died when I was very young, leaving my little sister and myself de pendent on a*rangers. Caroline was adopted by a gentleman living in Boston while I was taken care of by a fisherman whom my father had once in his employ, when the world went well with us. When I was eleven years old, I went to Bea; since which I had neverseen my sis ter. Mrs. Ashley's face brought Caro lina's childish look back to me. I asked her a few questions when I recovered, and found that my heart had been true to early memories. She was, indeed, my sister Caroline. Parted so long, there was strange sweetness in our reunion. She now sleeps the slumber that is never broken on earth. Each year, some one who has loved me falls away. My poor Gilbert is still spared to me, although that dreadful night's work crippled him for life. We were all that were saved—I, to take care of him, and he to b)e?B me with hiB true and beau tiful affection. A number ofîéavy Montreal capitalists have applied to Parliament to incorpo rate a company to lay a cable between Canada and Ireland. was so The Hope ef the South. The change of feeling at the South, from despondency to hope, caused by the moderate and conciliatory sentiments of the President's Inaugural address, is al most miraculous. The entire Southern press, with the exception of a few bitter partisan sheets, of no circulation and In fluence (the hired organs of the carpet baggers), and the great mass of the Southern people, agree in declaring that if the President will only act up to the meaning of his fair words, the South will at once experience a revival of all her depressed and languid interests. They do not ask nor expect Hayes to recognize Nicholls and Hampton; they appreciate the political difficulties of the President's position ; and they do not re gard such a recognition as necessary to relieve the South from her doubt and distress. They only request that the President shall not interpose his opinion or his patronage or bis influence between the rival governments of the two con tested States, but simply let them alone and withdraw the Federal troops which are not needed there to preserve the peace, and which only intensify and pro tract the local dissensions. Perhaps the Southerners are too saDguine in hoping for sueh great results of good as oirect consequences of a change of Federal policy toward their section. Their feel ings, however, are largely shared at the North, where the merits of the question can be impartially and calmly judged. At the meetings lately held in New York and other Northern cities by Republicans, to "strengthen the hands" of the Presi dent, the greatest stress has been laid upon his promised pacification of the South—by letting her alone—as the one thing most conducive to the return of business prosperity. No public speaker, and no newspapei of any party in the North, so far as we are aware, holds a contrary opinion. The President would undoubtedly have an overwhelming ma jority of his fellow-citizens at his back in standing by the pledges that he has made, and we hope to see him do it. If he did not quite bring about a millennium at the South by giving her people the right of self-government, he could at least re store peace and an increase of prosperity to two of the Southern States which are now suffering from a contention that would cease to exist but for the one sided interference of the Federal arm. It is the belief of the closest obser vers of affairs in Louisiana and South Carolina that if Packard and Chamber lain were once definitely told that the President would not recognize them, and if the regular troops were with drawn from those States, the difficult ties would be almost instantly compo sed. Neither Packard nor Chamber lain has had a hearty support even from the minority which Voted for them. Since the de 1 ivery of the in augural address, which gave no com fort to either of the pretenders, their strength has visibly declined. Great numbers of voters who sustained them at the polls are now anxious that they should retire, and leave this opposi tion, which comprises a majority of all the best and most substantial men in tbe two States, to take charge of the local governments. It is mentioned as a fact in Republican papers that "Gov." Packard's authority is not speeled outside of the St. Louis Hotel, in New Orleans (his executive quar ters), and he would not be recognized even there but for the presencsof Gem Augur's force in the city. "Gov." Chamberlain's standing in South Caro lina is equally slippery, some evidences of respect from his partisan ft lends, but he can collect no taxes—all these going into Hampton's treasury. Only the moral support of the regulars at Columbia enables him to keep up a show of state. Both of these bogus governments would col lapse in a night without bloodshed or disturbance of any kind if President Hayes would only call off the bayonets which alone prop them up. It would be a bloodless victory for rightful, iionest and frugal government at the South. It would be a blessing to tho whole country. And, viewed merely as a party measure,it would give to tbe Republican organization a real popu larity and strength which it now lacks. EATING VS^JMNKING. If you would keep from drinking so great a quantity of ardent spirits, cat, eat more. Eat nutritious foad. Eat something whenever you lake a drink. The drunk in ail cases, comes from tbe stomach full of whisky and no food. There is a simple rule yet to he learned by many, and that is, they do not eat enough of real blood, bona nerve and tissue making food. You may half starve to death on salt fish, potatoes, cabbage, turaips, fried liver, stewed kidney, and a score of other dishes that please the taste, but add little or nothing to the bodly force. Eggs.tbe best steak, mutton and bread are what one requires for strength- It is this un conscious half starved condition which causes so much of the craving for a temporary increase of strength and that is quickest gained through a glass of whisky: that gives, for a few mo ments, a spasmodic impulse to the wheels of life sending them whizzing and spinning arouDd tor a few mo ments, then comes reaction, and they turn more sluggish thau ever. The best spirits in the world reside in good blood, the worst in bad. It is that which send false imaginings, suspi cious and despondencies to the brain. all to in in or to re M of of I re He receives A dreary note of sorrow comes trom the vine districts of France.

JLort, at Sassafras, re cently. It seems that tbe doctor had betrayed and slandered a young girl named Kate Taylor. On the night of tbe 10th of February, the doctor was at home conversing with Mr. and Mrs. Prysr, when a knock was heard at the door. Mrs, Pryor responded, and four men entered. Two of the party are believed to have been William Taylor and a friend named Joseph Turbit, The entire party rushed into the hall and passed into the parlor. Lori's face blanched with terror cocked revolvers were pointed toward him. He offered no resistance, and was handcuffed. After being hand cuffed Lort was gagged, placed in a light wagon, and borne rapidly away. The wagon was driven to an unfre quented woods a short distance out side of the village. Lort was than partly stripped of bis clothing and in formed that he could take his choice of dying by his own banh or of receiving a terribly castigation. He chose the latter. Young Taylor was assigned to do the whipping,and had provided for the purpose a new whalebone whip. The victim was securely tied and the whip applied until it was completely worn out, and tho blood was stream ing from the Doctor's back, which was lacerated in a shocking manner. It is reported that he was then struck on the head with the butt end of the whip and knocked insensible,in which condition he was left on the ground. After the assailants returned to Sassa fras an alarm was given, and a party started in search of the Doctor and re moved him to Mrs. Pryor's residence. His wounds were thought at first to be of a very dangerous character, but were afterward found not to be as severe as at hrst apprehended. General at Last. A ve A tt orT ,. WAshiNQTON, March 18.—Attorney General Devens states that he intends to appear in person before the Sup Court in cases to which the ti States is a Williams, reme nited party. During the term of Pierrepont and Taft social and political occupations absorbed their time so that they could not attend to the court business of the gov ernment as did the old attorneys gen eral. Indeed, during Grant's term,the Department of Justice became a cen tral bureau for the manufacture of state governments,as Carl Schurz once aptly expressed it. Judge Deveus proposes to return to the earlier usages of tha department over which he pre ■ides.— Balt. Gazette. HANGING BY WHOLESALE. On Friday next, seven criminals are to be hanged at Aiken, South Carolina. They compose, in part, a gang of de speradoes and ruffians whose crimes were murder, riot, arson and rape. They are all negroes, with one excep tion, and one of them was formerly a preacher. The jury that convicted them was composed of eleven negroes and one white man. Confessions f nearly all of them bave been obtained, and tbe number of crimes they com mitted is almost incredible- Tbey were a portion of a hand organized to murder and plunder. roin A YOUNG MAN SMOTHERED IN HIS COFFIN. At Leu St. Kemy, in Belgium, a young man of eighteen years, who was believed to be dead, was placed in a coffin and buried' A great number of mourners accompanied the funeral. One of them pronounced a eulogium upon the charac ter of the deceased, the usual prayers were recited, and the coffin was lowered into the grave. The grave diggers had begun to fill it with clay when they heard several knocks given from within the cof fin. Terrified, they ran tc call the curate and inform the Mayor, in the presence of both personages the coffin was opened. The unfortunate youth, who had been buried alive while iu a state of lethargy, had made despefate efforts to break opeu the lid of the cofliD, but uselessly, and had died of asphyxia. ('LAIMING the Honok. —According to tae statement of Blaine of Maine he was the inventor of the plan that has been suggested to Mr. Hayes for holding new elections of State officers in Louisiana and South Carolina, Suppose now he suggest to Hayes that as his own title to the Presidency, according to Blaine's in terpretation of it, rests upon the same foundation as that of Packard to be Gov ernor ot Louisiana, he should procure a new election for President of the United States .—Baltimare Sun. The Boston Herald says an injunction has been served on three Boston banks, forbidding the transfer of certain Govern ment bonds and other securities to the parties to whose credit they were placed on deposit. These securities are believed to be part of the plunder stolen from the Northampton BaDk. Democratic Majority in the Sen ate. —Washington, March 13.—For the first time since 1861 the Democrats had a majority in the Senate to-day, and Mor ton did not dare to offer his report on Kellogg. For all party purposes Republi can control of the Senate is gone. The Pan-Presbyterian council to be held at Edinburgh next July bids fair to be one of the most illustrious sectarian gath erings of modern times, and if its deliber atlons shall he at all commensurate with the preparations now going forward it wiil'mark a new epoch in the history of the church.
