STORMING THE ISLES.
I Hl-NGS AMC KIOAN HAVK CAP 'il’Bl'D JOHN HULL. M ..„„1o 8 e by T Noble Lord oo m. Experience In “Tito States’-The l’resent C*e In London Town. f r .. m the Philadelphia Record. LONDON. AUrcii 19.—Tue craza for everything Americau has broken out in lull force all over staid old Loudon town. Probably the approaching exhibition luay bave a little to do with it. Walking down Piccadilly yesterday 1 bethought me of several articles in the fancy grocer ies line which were getting low down in my domestic larder. So 1 strayed into my favorite shop, a shop of foreign ware housemen, who keep asupplv of all sorts and conditions of American goods. In deed I’ve suggested to the firm many arti cles they never would have dreamed of getting, suoh as real American oysters, prime in quality and brought over In fast steamers. For, be not deceived, my Philadelphia friends, the English oysters , re delusions and coppery snares, even if they he the celebrated expensive “Whit stable natives,” whatever be tholr claim to be eaten by the oyster epicure. Looking about the shop my attention was arrested by the ultra swell voice of an ultra swell Englishman. The unde fined journalistic sense of something riob about to develop itself oaused me io retreat out of immediate view among the barrels and boxes, and to say in a low tone to the clerk* “1 am in no hurry; please lot me listen.” They all know me and are used to my putting down wbat Ido as another American “eccen tricity.” Therefore the clerk mado no comment, ouly bringing me a high stool to tit upon. By this time the swell (whom lor convenience sake, and since 1 don’t know his name, we will call “Lord Slapdash”) was well launched out in his ordering ot supplies. Listening to this Rud thinking much about it meanwhile. I’ve concluded that I could not do better than to tell uiy friends all about it, for it is a droll adventure and one fraught with a deal of meaning to the reflaotive American. . “Pve been to the States, donefierknow,” said Slapdash. The clerk bowed, and in an interroga tive wav remarked: “Ytsf” The Lord in question was anew cus tomer, so what could be said with more appropriateness? “Ya-as, by Jove, I have, donoherknow. 1 went to take a six weeks outing, and got there when they ware eating oorn— t mean maice—on the oob, and all that sort of thing.” “Precisely,” put in the olerk. “Well.it is a most extraordinary sight; they eat it boiled—l mean the ooyn—and put butter on it, and salt and pepper, served out of individual cruets. ’Pon ion, really. 1' looks strange to see the people moving each side, this way and that, obe wing corn. At first it turned me quite faint, it looked so much like coun try bumpkins, away off in Somerset shire, at a Michaelmas fair, doncher tnow. But there was an awfully jolly girl at the inn (I put up at the Continen tal in Philadelphia first of all, City of Brotherly Love, and all that sort of thing), and 1 got feartui spoons on her before 1 knew who she was, or if she had any birth, you know. Well, I saw her bard at this oorn, and her hands and arras were ‘lovely,’ as they say in the States. You see I’ve got vbe American dialect already, donoherknow. Well, 1 made up my mind to have ‘a go’ at that extraordinary corn, so 1 watched the young lady, and 1 got on beautifully. Then the peaches came next in season. And they were extraordinary as well. I’ve paid hail a crown for a peach in Regent street, but in the States you get, I should say, two pounds of peaches for a shilling, or one ana sixpence. After the peaches came the oysters. My word! the Americans know an oyster when they see it. So 1 made up my mind to stop a year on the other side, to get al! the Yan kee things in their aeasou. I’ve been everywuere in the States. Went away down in Louisiana to get ‘peck-kan’ nuts fresh. (Let me parenthetically remark that despite young Lord (Slupdasb’s pro nunciation. he alluded to our ordinary American peoan nut.) Ya-as, peck-kan* and peauuts. But i like peanuts best on •Broadway. They sell them in New Yoik on Broadway fresh roasted. 1 used to buy a big paper full of them and eat them when I got back to my chambers in the Brevoort, another good inu.” .. “Yes, we have peanuts,” observed the clerk. "Have you, really,” answered my Lord. On which the peanuts, unroasted, were produced; alto samples of them roasted, •belled and put up in bottles. The pecan nuts were shown as well. These latter my Lord ordered a large quantity of for a prospective dinner party. But he drew the hue at peanuts. “Yousee,he explained, “they taste so different when they’re hot. Now, couldn’t pon roast them to order? Tney have in the States a large iron machine that turns around with coals under it, and turns the peanuts out every hour, don cherkuow.” “Well,” suggested the clerk, “we toasted some at Christmas In our coffee roaster for Alice Atherton's ( Mrs. Willie Ldouin’s) children’s party, and they toasted beautifully.'’ ejaculated his Lordship; the cotlee roaster! never! Why it would take all that delicious fragrance away, a iragrancequite oriental.” Ob! bow I laughed to myseir behind ‘“tuning barrels. To think that I nouia live to hear the peculiar odor oi underbred peanut denominated as bilftv la by a member ° r lhe British no continued, “there is no wav I< J import a machine, with a man to ‘ > and put up a sign: ‘Peanuts iresn roasted every hour.’ But I’ll take kcorn.popper if you have one.” ~***: Bu one on hand,” said the H sample, so us to order them eiitn^ niar * ,,r tUo holidays for our Si 1W "- Hut this IS not quite the oorn Popping season, is it?” good man, perhaps p,,’ 1 think 111 secure one while I’m lee 1 P 'I* 9 ® put up ttle popper.

I took five pounds oi candy on tbe steamer, all molasses." Lacking candy, he ordered a dozen bot tles of America maple syrup. “For flap.jacks, donenerknow,” he ex plained; “sucli amusing people In the states,* keep up old Indian names. Tnough really they are quite civilized everywhere. They are, ’pou honor.” “Yes,” said tbe clerk, looking over slyly in my direction, “the Americans are a treat people.” Finally, when something liks£2owoiTk was ordered, my Lord Slapdash made out his check. He was quite “chummy” with the clerk. “Americau manners,” I presume, imbibed in “tbe States.” and on leaving he presented tbe young man with a cigar. Such a piece of oondesoeusion would never have boon shown save iroin the effect of good fellowship engendered in the Amerloan atmosphere and a sort of pride In bis possession of a case of the American weed to boot. After bis departure 1 had a good laugh with the clerk. He tells me that this craze Is spreading, and nothing will sur prise him. “No,” he added, merrilv, “not even will I be surprised to ses tbe’Q. O. M.’ Glad stone chewing spruce gem and munoblng peanuts (when we get to roasting them every hour) while he is chopping down a tree before breakfast of a cold, frosty morning.” Leaving the shop I wandered about foi au hour, looking idly in the windows of tbe big drapers and haberdashers. “American wooleus” was on a sign in one of the windows. This was very like bringing ooals to Newcastle, slnoe tne Scotch woolen fabrics are absurdly cheap here. American sewing maobines and American “caLooes,” which latter is the name given in England to white cot ton goods for use in making up ladles’un dergarments. in short, to be in tbe lat est London fashion one must bo quite American, “donoherknow.” Eveu if one devote au evening to seeing Italian opera at Covent Garden theatre, It will be found tbal Mr. Mapleson flourishes Amer ican prima donnas in one’s ears. The Queen likes Americans, and, If she does, theu why not the lowest subject of her majesty? It is a lhosc excellent thing this mania, especially In the matter of food. AV ith tne coming exhibition will be seen Amerioan goods, cooking, gar ments and customs galore. All sorts of outlandish doiugs are now laid to Ameri ca's door; so. when the exhibition be gins, I dare say we shall be American ized to death. At drawing rooms the prettiest girls that are presented to the Queen are Americans. Indeed, there is a joking tradition that the American Minister keeps a standing feminino army always on hand at his embassy quarters. These fair ladies waie pretty gowns and are full of Ohio and coquetry. They don’tall behave quite well, I am afraid, at all times. Indeed, they seem often to de light while in England in conduct they would blush over at borne in their mother country, and to revel in being loud and unfemimhe when they should be soit and gentle in voice and manners. But, thank heaven! these are exceptional cases, not the general rule; for, take it all in all, Columbia’s best bred daughters in no way make the judicious sojourners in London town ashamed of fellow-Americans or oi the American craze.

Here ie the prose sketch found by the editor iu those neat manuscript books which are objeots of affectionate rever ence to all who enjoyed the high privilege of Rossetti’s friendship: “Miohael Scott and a friend, both young and dissolute, are returning from a carouse, by moonlight, along a wild seacoast during a ground-swell. As they come within view of a small house on tho rocky shore, his companion taunts Michael Scott as to his known passion for tbe maiden Janet who dwells there wltn ber father, and as to tbe failure of the snares he has laid for her. Scott is goad ed to great irritation, and as they near the point of the sands overlooked by the cottage be turns round on his friend and declares that tbe maiden shall come out to bim then and there at his summons. The friend still taunts and haulers him, saying that wine has heated bis brain; but Scott stands quite still, muttering, and regarding the oottago with a gesture of command. “After be has done so for some time, the door opens softly, and Janet comes running down the rock. As she ap proaches, she nearly rushes into Michael Scott’s arms, but instead swerves aside, runs swiftly by him, and pluuges into the surging waves. With a shriek Michael plunges alter her, and strikes out this side and that, and lashes bis way among the billows between tne rising and slaking breakers; but ail in vain—no siga appears of her. Arter some time spent in this way he returns almost exhausted to tbe sauda, and pass ing without answer by his appalled and questioning friend, h climbs the rook to tbe door of the bottage, which is now closed. “Janet’s father answers his loud knocking, and to him be says: “•Play me. for your daughter has drowned herself this hour in yonder sea, and by my means.’ “The fatner at first suspeots some stratagem, but finally deems him mad, and says: “•You rave—my daughter is at rest in her bed.’ “ ’Go seek her there,’ answer Mtobaal Scott. “The father goee up to his daughter’s chamber, and returning very pale, signs to Michael to follow him. Together they climb the stair, and find Janet balf lying and balf kneeling, turned vio lently around, as If, in the act oi rising Irem her bed, she had again thrown her self backward and clasped tbe feet or a crucifix at her bed-head; soshe lies dead. Michael ocottrushe* from the houso, and returning maddened to the seashore, is wlib difficulty restrained from suicide by bis friend. At last he stands like u stone for a while, and then, as If repeating an inner whisper, be describes the maiden’s iaet struggle with her heart. He says bow she loved him, but would not sin; how, hearing In her sleep bis appeal from the shore, she almost yielded, and tbe embodied image of her longing oame rushing out to him; but bow in the last. Instant she turned buok lor refuge to Christ, and ber soul was wrung from her by the struggle of ber heart. “ ‘And as 1 speak,' he save, ‘the fiend who whispers this concerning ber says aiso in my ear how surely 1 am lost.’ ” Cool, Uarefnl Mr. Netterllelit. > Mr. Harman Netterfleld, the young, gentleman of Klngsland, Wells oounty, Iml., who drew the 810,000 at tbe Feb Bib drawing of Tbo Louisiana State Lot terarv, has reueived tbe cash.

Banook, March 29 A few years ago, when the first three-masted schooners of from 500 to 800 tons were built in Maine, the old-time masters and builders, used to fore-and-afters of only 200 or 300 tons, shook their heads disparagingly and de clared thin people were going ornzy, aad vtUhu ibeu vessels were followoil later by four-masters ol 1,000 tons and upward, they ridiculed both ressel and lankier. Now, wnen a fbur-mnied schooner of nearly 1,000 tons has been launched, the ancient mariners are lost In amazement, and are asking eaou other where inis sort ol thing will end, arid what will be tne limit of size. There was launched at Hath a few days ago tho largest schooner-rigged sailing vassal but one afloat. She is the T. A. Lambert, 227 feet touuage length, R> feet beam. 22.1 feet hold and 1,588.31 net tons. She has a tremendously heavy frame and is fastened ns heavy as a whaler. Her lower masts are each 112 feet long, and ber spar* in proportion, so tliut one may readily Imagine the amount of sail sue can spread. She is estimated to have a carrying capacity ot 2,900 tons, so that with any decent sort ot business and dis patch ber freight money for a season in the coal, Ice and hard pine trade must figure up something handsome. Here is a sohooner larger than the ma jority ol ships and burks, and with greater proportionate carrying capacity than the square riggers, which, on account of her simple rig, requires but half the crew of the latter, and much less expenditure for sails and rigging, and svhioii, if the coast ing or West India business is dull, can go into deep water trades, us did lhe four-master llaroldine, built at North Weymouth, Mass., a few years ago. The crew of such a vessel are relieved of the heavier drudgery by a steam engine placed forward, and their forecastle is generally a parlor compared with those of small craft. The exigencies of the times have called tue monstersohoono'-Binto existence, and they bave come to st,uy. They are cheap ly built, economically sailed, great car riers, and last saiiers. so their popularity is not to be wondered at. Quite a num ber of schooners ranging from 600 tons upward are now being constructed in Alains yards, and preparations are being made for tne buildiug, at Camden, of a tour-master of twelve to thirteen hundred tons, modeled something alter tue King Philip, iauneued at that place last fall. Kreicuts may be low and business dull, but Jlalne is a State of sailors and build ers, and if they can’t get a living in ordi nary sized craft they are bound to do it in big iellotvs, which can carry as much at one trip as a wnoie “mosquito fleet.” As to tbe limit of size, as ships bave increased from 300 tons in the early davs to 3,000 tons to-day without exciting anv great wonder, nobody need be surprised to see the old coasting schooner of 200 tons succeeded in tha near future by a five-master of 2,000 tons. Some uewspapers have reported the T. A. Lambert to be the largest sohooner afloat. This is a mistake. The largest vessel of this c!as is the five-inaster Golden Age, 1,763 tons, built at Bride’s Bridge, Ohio, some years ago. Tbe Lam bert ranks next. BALKING LIKE A DOG. Nothing; to Bock Up this One Sym tom of Hydrophobia. From the Peneacola (Fla.) Commercial . Tuesday afternoon a number of people of all colors flocked to a little house on Barcelona street, a few doors north of Government, in whioh reside a colored woman, Bella Woodson and her 10-year old daughter Cordelia. As reports from that locality became more widely scat tered over the city, callers became more numerous, and at 6 o’clock p. m , when a reporter repaired to the ss>ot there was a large orowd of people in tho street in tront of the bouse discussing the wonderful oase within. A policeman stood at tho door and refused admit tance to everybody but the reporter, who stepped inside and found Dr. W. K Fordbam bending over a bed wbio h stood in one corner of the apartment, upon which lay the girl aforementioned. Hound about were several women, among them the mother, and two or three men, one of whom was the mother’s father. The report which had been circulated on the streets was to the effect, that a case of hy dropbobia had developed in this house, but that tbe victim, a 10-year-old colored girl, was exhibiting but oue symptom of"the dreaded disease, whining, growling and barking like a dog. The reporter had not. been In the room three minutes when from the bed came several rapidly deliv ered, most perfect barks, aud, but for tbo fact that be was watching the girl, and saw ber as she gave utterance to them, be could scarcely have been convinced that there was not a dog in the room, so perteot an imitation of a canine bark were they. These barks were delivered at inter, vals of about ten minutes. To tbe doc dor’s queries it was positively asserted that the child had never been bitten, neither liad either of the parents, by dog, oat, wolf or anything else. The ohild was perfectly rational, had not the slight est fever, and felt no pain in any part of her body. Sue expressed a sense of shame at the barking she was forced to do. To the reporter, tbe mother, when asked how long the child bad been in this condition, said that twenty-thrae days ago the child was taken with a kind of spasmodic jerking at the stomach, not exaotiy convulsions, and yesterday morning she tainted. Recovering from toe tainting tit she began barking like a dog, and felt so keenly her position that she remarked to her mother that It would never do to Uavo the neighbors knuw ol her condition. Dr. Fordbam was then called in. The reporter and (he doctor left the house together, tue latter having pre scribed a nervine. To the query by the reporter as to tho nnture of tbe case, Dr. Eordbsm frankly admitted that lie had never in his experience seen or heard of anything like it. He had not yet con cluded his diagnosis, and he would on tbe morrow invite other physicians to accompany biin when bo visited lhe pa tient. To-day at 12 o’clock Dr*. Fordbam. Herron aud Ksnsbaw, accompanied by the reporter, repaired to the house and found the patient doing somewhat holier, the barking, which was still being contin ued, being less in volume and delivered at greater intervals. The cnild slept well during the night and barsed none, but, on awaking this morniug, resumed the delivery of the strange sounds. The two visiting physicians expressed themselves to un effect similar to the an swer of Dr. Fordbam to tbe reporter—they had never beard of or seen anything like It In their experience. All, however, were inclined to believs it a nervous affection, and soouted tbe idea tliut it might be hy drophobia. Dr. Fordbam eaid subse quently to the reporter that, in bin opin ion, the oaee resulted from an Inflamma tion of tbe nerve centres, which bad pos sibly been Induced by a precocious devel opment. Lie had not, however, concluded me diagnosis, and would not say anything positively in this connection. Borne of the colored people living in tbe vicinity of tbe houae where tbo patient reside* are ooufldeut that the obiid is the viotim ol avnudoo doctor, and no amount of per*ua*ion oan Induce them to change this tuperatitioua belief.

The Fluctuations of Mysterious blocks Automatically llegistered. Prom the Nr to York Stir . Perhaps of all the methods ever invented by ingenious gamblers to coax from, tho pockets of tho “lambs” their weekly stl ponds or the onsh they cun nog, borrow or embezzle, the most insidious is that which is to be found at No. 60 Broad street. A reporter ior tho Star yesterday visited the establishment, which is pre sided over by Campbell & Cos., and found there all sorts of devotees of fortune, iroui the full-fledged member ot the Stock Ex change and the scalper ot the New York Produce Exchange to the curbstone broker. Two sets of quotations are oil tbe boards. Upon one is recorded the ao tuai transactions ot the Stock Exchange as transmitted by the “bucket shop ywire,” and these quotations are correct, although surreptitiously obtained. Upon the other board is recorded tho various fluctuation*, which are made by a purely mechanical contrivance, on certain al leged raining stocks supposed to be con trolled by the oompany who owns the Iranohise of the apparatus which auto matically makes tne quotations. Tue proprietors, of course, disclaim any iu teniion to transgress tbe laws against gambling, but even the most casual in vestigation by any one versed in games of chaiioe will be sufficient to convince him that it is a game ot ebanoe. Said Air. Gampboll to a reporter: “1 patented this apparatus several years ago lu Chicago, and opened an office under the regular Board or Trade in that city. Many of the brokers there investigated mv way ol dolti; business, aud were sat isfied to trade with me eveu during the business hours of the regular board. Now. there’s a man—po.ntmg to a gentle man who had just entered the office—who did the first trade on the clockwork board in Chicago. He had been unfortunate among his associates of the legitimate and came to my place to make up h:s losses. He was succbsslul and went back to tlie board, although not as a member, and was able to do a good business. He made a good deal of money out ot us. I was surprised to see him hero.” inquiry of the gentleman referred to corroborated thesa statements, but also set forth the fact that he had continued hi* speculations until be was willinir to come to New York aud take a salaried position. The operations of the clockwork quota tion apparatus is entirely and absolutely automative, it consist* of a dial which at hall-minute intervals records first tne advance of some certain stock, and below that the decline of the same or another stock. These shares are lettered F. M. G-, M. M. G., H. M. C., T. AL C. and P. M. C., supposed, according to the bulle tin conspicuous in the office of Messrs. Campbell At Cos., to represent tbe stocks of the Fenetla Mining Company, tho filer chants’ anu Manufacturing Company, the Hettie Mining Company and the Ferro Mining Company, the control of wnicb, Mr. Campbell claims, has oeeu obtained by his company for $21,000. Wbat is done with the other mining companies on the list of the corporation is not given out. To a reporter for the Star Mr. Camp bell said yesterday: “Our methods are perfectly legal. We bave had here filcesrs. Anthony Comstuoa and Inspector Byrnes, besides various member* of tbe Stock Exchange. They have invariably attested their belief in the fairness of our dealings, and one prominent stock broker said to-day he would be glad to call upon us again.” filr. Campbell added: “Of course there are times when the whole of our list will move in one direction—that is, the clock will go against us, and the sums we then pay out are something enormous, but tney generally—in lact, inevitably—come back, and we reap not only the profits of the transactions, but the commission of per cent., which pays our expenses and more.” The ingenious apparatus which reoords th-se quotations was patented by Air. Campbell on May 4, 1886, and give* to the inventor the right to make, vend or otherwise use the tickers and quotations of the company or party lurnishing the quotations. Tbe Instrument eu change the quotations only by automatic process, in illustrating this Air, Campbell, stood by tbe machine and gave out theebangea, which, on examination by the Star re porter, were proven to depend entirely on onanoe. Replying to the question a* to how be hoped to evade the law on gambling, Air. Campbell said: “1 have here acertaln number of stocks which 1 propose to sell at the price marked hy my indicator, and will take It back at the same price. The stock men tioned represents the shares of regularly organized mining companies, (or the con trol of wbioh i paid $20,000. I would like' to see any one force me out of the privi lege of bartering In them or the right of charging y t of 1 percent, or more or less as I choose.” Two stocks—F. 31, <J. aud M. M. C.— change 1 point at a time, and yesterday they varied from 1 to 26 points. Other stocks change from y t to at a quota tion, and vary accordingly. All of these companies, a* represented by Mr. Camp bell, have regularly organized boards ol trustees, hue, as was said bra prominent Consolidated Exchange broker, "if they exist outside of the ‘clock,’ they are no thing but prospect holes, incorporated to give a semblance of legality to wbat is nothing more nor less than a game of obanoe.” MAKING UOOVt FOR DEMO CRATS. How Republican Office-Holders arc Being Weeded Ont. From Waehinytun Letter It the Baltimore American. A Democrat io Congressman, who keeps himself pretty well posted on national politic*, remarked to-day, while ut the Treasury Department, that there is now very little ground far Democrats to com plain that Republican officials are not being turned out of the government ser vice fast enough. He says he has given the subject.considerable attention, and bo finds that nearly all of the Uepubl loan postmaster* have been replaced hy Demo crats, and the same can be said of col lectors of customs, collectors of internal revenue and tboir subordinates aud ol nearly all ot tbu other braucues of the public service. He predicts that, before tbe next Tresidentiul election roils around there will hardly he a Republican in any important government position except iu the departments at Washing ton, and they cun be of little or no assist ance to their party, us their superior officers can prevent thorn from taking au active part in politics by simply saying wnen they request to go borne to vote that their services cannot be spared from the office at tout time, iie also takes a very cheerful end bopeiul view of tbe political situation from his party siaud point. Be says the creation ottho Inter state CommerocCommlssion will fie'of In estimable value to the Democratic party in the next campaign, as H will have the administration behind it, and therefore exert a powertullnfluence over the rail road corporation* whloh bave heretofore be j n the b*eC of supply for the Republi cans In national elections.
