The ensrgetlo movement in New York eitf snd Boston to Induce Oongzesi to pay proper attention to the matter of oar sea oost de feases is a cheering mgntthat some of - those directly interested are at last waking np to the danger of leaving onr harbors in their present unprotected state. Few know or care how badly off we are in this respsot, bnt one month of war would teach all the wisdom of preparing for it. While the various govern ments of Europe hare been alternately con structing ship armor to resist the attack of the heaviest ordnance, and perfecting ordnance that will pierce the thickest armor, the United States has been practically doing nothing. uur rortincauons and onr meagre navy are supplied with old-fashianed canaSn, the ub4 pf which is obsolete in other countries, and the range so limited as trM practically worth less against the long-range cannon and heavy armor of English, French, German and Italian vessels like the Inflexible, with her sixteen inoh guns, and the Frenssen, with her twelve Inch Kropp guns. We have on our entire coast of 12,600'miles only S25 fifteen-inch smooth-bore guns, and this is the only gun of any power, except the eight-Inch Tifle, whieha we have. These guns eodtd be used at short range with some effect, but their carriages will not stand ths strain of 10 Q ponnds of powder, the charge that ought to be used, and it is stated that there are not on hand twenty rounds of ammunition per gun, and no appli ances to make the peculiar powder best fitted for these guns. Twelve-inoh rifles are con sidered the. best guns for defense, and if an order were given now by the Government to make all the twelve-inch guns that could be made in this country in a year, bat few could be delivered. As a oonsequenoe of this state of things, in case the United States should get into trouble with a maritime nation we should be at an im mense disadvantage. As was pointed oat in the last report of the Chief of .Engineers, the cruisers and war vessels of the enemy could run into our harbors and, without landing, oould either destroy the property along our shores or else lay the people under contribu tion. The accurate detailed charts of our harbors and ohannels published by the United States Coast Survey are aooessible to all such nations, and are doubtless in their possession. If the enemy posessed depots and arsenals in close proximity to our shores, the arrival of armed '-.vessels would follow in a .few hoars after the declaration of war. Thirty six hours' steaming would bring vessels from Halifax ; six hours, vessels from Havana, and ninety-six hoars, vessels from Viotoria, Van couver's Island, to important harbors of the United States. There might be very little time for preparation to meet the assaults of iron plated ships, for they are plated with from six to fifteen inches of iron, and oarry rifled guns from nine inches to fourteen inches bore, all of which guns are more powerful than any gun we have in our service. With a fleet or even a single vessel of this kind in one of our har bors, it would be of no avail to collect troops in the city or town threatened. - Suppose, it is asked, with our railroad facilities, we could concentrate 100,000 men in twenty-four hoars at the point threatened, of what use would they be against the armored ship ? Suppose that in a night the men oonoentrated could throw up earth-works and mount 32 -pounders, 42-pounders, 100-pounder rifles (even if it were possible to handle guns of this small size with the rapidity assumed), what injury oould all this do the armored ship in question ? The projeotiles from such batteries would fall harmlessly from the side of the enemy. While lying, if need be, beyond the range even of our guns, with his more powerful armaments he would pierce suoh parapets through and through, dismount the guns and explode the magazines. And oar great seaboard cities, if they should fall into the hands of enemies, would suffer ten times the cost of all the forts necessary to defend them. The somewhat common opinion that har bors can be defended with torpedoes alone is pronounced a delusion by those who are best acquainted with the facts. They freely ad mit that the engineers of England, France and Spain are so skillful that under their direc tion torpedoes can be pioked up as fast as laid. Besides, every fleet of the nations named is supplied with perfeot charts of all the important American harbors, and their engineers could thus judge with fair aoouraey where American engineers would be most apt to lay torpedoes for effective work, and could govern their operations accordingly. So the only way in whioh torpedoes can be kept in position until their operators are ready to have them serve the best purposes, is to provide for their protection such landV fortifications as will make approach to them for dragging or lift ing purposes a most hazardous undertaking. General Abbott said of torpedoes in a recent lecture : "The new weapon is officially regard ed only as an auxiliary, essential to the suc cessful working of the water batteries. The mines are always placed under the close flank ing fire of land guns, without whioh they oould not be defended against a hostile fleet Their function is to close the channel against a rapid passage of tbe enemy. Defensive tor pedoes are to be looked upon as sea mines ; as an offset to the screw propeller and defensive armor of ships of war. In the defence of the coast, the most consplonous part will naturally devolve upon the artillery." To place our seaboard cities and our ships f war in proper condition will require inces sant work for several years, but it should be immediately and vigorously undertaken. The oost would be great, bat the money would be well spent. .To let things go as they are would be penny wise and pound foolish. Many na tions have found to their sorrow that nothing is bo costly as a laok of preparation for war. ington over the threatening scpeet of affairs in Europe, - The belief among -them is ? that Bossia is looking to a cordial . understanding withtFranoe, and that as to thp latter the question of war with Germany is one now re ceiving very Beriou( attention ati the hands of those directing the affairs of the repablic They-have completed the fortifications of Paris; and. they are regarded as impregnablew Xneir army is ample in. numbers,' aneir was matortal abundant, and thei. finances in Bx-i oelleBt condition. As an indioaton of the near approach of trouble in Europe, all . the - lega tions have information of large sums being sent here for investment by men of prom inence in the affaire of the continent, and by leaders in commercial affairs. Inquiries have also been received as to the probable producing capacity of our arms manufacto ries, and as to the surplus of our provisions. Some of the newspapers of tbe Dominion are beginning to see that a Canadian Pacifia railroad is going to cost altogether too much money if built after the present plan. The Quebec Herald figures it up this way : Lake Nipissing to Thunder Bay, 630 miles, at 70, 000 per mile, $44,100,000. Thunder Bay to Selkirk, 410 mile, -at 950,000 per mils, $20, 500,000. Selkirk to Yellow Head Pass, 1,043 miles, at $20,000 per mile, $20,860,000. Yellow Head Pass to Burrard Inlet, 493 miles, at $100,000 per mile, $49,300,000. - There is a total estimated cost of $134,760,000, whioh will doubtless be swelled to $150,000,000 when the road is finally completed. When it is considered that theToad will joi .. tb.noa.gh about two thousand miles of an aTtnctet Unin habitable country ; that there are not 100,000 souls living in the whole territory whioh reaones from Lake Kipissing to 4he Pacific ; that his vast country oannot be settled np to any appreciable extent for - a great many years; and that under these. oirauprsUncea the railroad should, of necessity, be construct ed as a colonization road, to be improved as its traffio develops, and not as a great .trunk line through an old, densely populated , and wealthy oountry, the Herald thinks it most be evident to every impartial mind that capital is being recklessly and uselessly squandered on its construction, and that the finances of tbe oountry are being imperiled. . The ' idea of discarding the drum in the French army is again being seriously dis cussed in France. Those who support the proposal argue that the drummer is useless as a soldier., He cannot defend himself, and he is encumbered in his movements by an instru ment whioh, when it is wet, will not give forth any sound. Then too, ths drum oannot be ' heard ' at any great distanoe, and in any oase signals given by it are difficult to under stand. Impeded by his drum, the drummer, it is further pleaded; rarely steps a full pace, and consequently the marohing of the whole column, at the head of whioh he moves, Is disordered. In the French army there are, it is calculated, nearly 3,000 drummers in time of peace, and double that number when the army is on a war footing ; and it is argued that if these men were given bugles instead of drums, they would be able to take their shire in fighting as actual combatants. On the other hand,' those who objeot. to abolition maintain that the drum can be heard more distinctly and at a greater distance during the rattle of musketry and the noise of battle than any bugle ; that its beat will be more inspirit, ing to men charging than would be the dis cordant and feeble notes which, under the same circumstances, would be sounded by the bugle ; that if wet and damp affect the dram, cold will affect much more prejudicially the lips of the bugler ; and that the idea of utiliz ing the latter as an actual fighting man is sim ply impracticable.

" X - . . There is said to be a general . feeling of anxiety among the different legations at Wash. a.ife-8 riving- Station, on the Jersey Beach and tne Eille-Savlnsr Station ln 'Fletw Haven. - v To the Editor of the J on Ball, lau OocnUB : Last Monday night while the many thou sand pf our sheltered families were enjoying the comfort and warmth of their homes, out side the dark clouds . ware rolling across the sky, and the wind was rising and moaning in s way that boded no good to those "that go down to the sea in ships." When the morning broke, onr streets were covered with snow andthe air was faU of the flying feathers, while the wind pUed it up into fantastic shapes and sent it into all sorts of corners. It was a goodly sight and brought glad visions of sleigh rides, merry snowballing for the boys and fun in lots of shapes.; bat what a different aspect had the Jersey Beach, that dread strip of , sand whioh stretches from Sandy Hook to Cape May. No one but those who have seen it ean Imnginw with what force the sea breaks on that beach, or how helpless a vessel is on that shorn with tbe wind against her. - All alone the coast are ships whioh tell the dreadful story. or storm ana wreoK ana aeatn. it osea to be that if a shiD mt Jersev on her lee on a stormv night there was but little hope for her, bat oar1 Christian sentiment has dotted the coast with' life-saving stations, and the chances of rescue, have greatly increased. Last Monday nighty were was a sonooner on tnat coast tnat had come out from Hampton Roads on Sunday morning wittf- a orew of six men, young and" Lstrong. Aslhewma rose the "boys were called about 10 o'clock to take In the topsails and before midnight the storm was on them.. in force, the air was full ot snow and nothing" could be seen a snip s length abead. Knowing that they were near, the shore the wordwas passed to '.''bout ship," for land is dangerous to a sailor on a stormy night, so ths captain took the wheel and the men stood by sheets and tackle, and just as she4- came up to the wind and was lying helpless,- there suddenly gleamed put on them the red and green lights of another vessel, coming ont from the thick snow, coming down on them like an avenging fate. There Was no time for anything exoept to yell "Pat the wheel up," bat it was too late. There was an awful grinding crash, and in less than a moment the two vessels were parted again. One man had sprang from the Kate Newman, for that was her name, to the strange ship from which he saw his own disappear in the darkness, and then he joined his new friends, for "pity and 1WWI matceg-sll -flesh- itw," in trying 'to save their vessel. She was sadly wrecked, and before they oould clear away they were in the breakers, so that youDg William Ray joBt es caped from the "Kate Newman" to be ship wrecked on the "Harding," bat the men from the life-saving station came with their mor tars and lines and saved all aboard, including the captain's wife. The life-saving men had terrible night of It, out in tne blindino snow storm, on the edge of the breakers in the awful darkness, when the flying sleet was frozen into' bullets and' the flakes cut like kniVeS, toiling to save the drowning sailors: They had carried their apparatus for miles through the storm, through creeks and inlets, sometimes up to the waist in water, in the sand and in the darkness, 'but they felt no la bor to be too great to save perishing human beings. Yet they didn't save all, for on ths morrow, when the sea had gone down and the sky was as clear as though the storm bad never raged there, William Ray stood on the beach and looked across the waters to where the masts of his vessel stood above the waves, while at his feet laid the bodies of three of his shipmates, dressed in their oil-skins as when ire last stood by their sides, and their bruised races upturned to tne wintry sky. r or them all storms were over ; the surf that had rolled them to the shore, for them had lost its ter rors ;-they had gone Where tbe "surges oease to roll" and to God, who will judge the sailors tenderly. Three homes in Maine will mourn for those who were lying there on Monmouth Beach. There are worse sights in New Haven, places far more dangerous. Many a night you oan see a sailor lying at the head of the wharf drunk. Homeless, friend less, his form all wrecked, his upturned face all bloated, - little resemblance of a mau in him, a castaway indoed, wrecked here on shoals more fatal than any in our seas. He Is worse than drowned ; be is lost. Yet he is somebody's boy, and long ago oame from some home, and his mother to-ilay may be saying in her anguish, if I only knew my bov was dead I'd be content, but he is dead to all that is noble and holy, dead to all that is pore and true. Better far for him if he were lying on the sand of Jersey Beach with his face to the sky, and he would have been hallowed in his death as another of the name less heroes who died at his post, as so many sailors do, bat now he is despised by all who pass hint by. For this poor, lost class there are few life-saving stations on onr coast. When a sailor comes to onr port, the first one to board him is a "runner" from some dance hall or a thieving clothing store. He always has a bottle of bad whiskey with him ; he's a jolly fellow and so he gets the sailor into his olutohes. There are gin mills on every cor ner, nearly, but where are the good places opened for him ? Within the past year the Ladies' Seamen's Friend Society have opened a reading room on Water street, and a noble work is being done, but it is quite a mistaKe to have this one life-saving station, located in a dark ooraer in sse of tbe nest inconvenient spots on water front, while the devil occu pies some of the best places in the city, and we need a life-saving station for sailors and sailors only, and the sailors themselves are moving in it, and before long we trust there will be a Bethel, a sailor's church, a place where Jack can drop anchor at any time and feel that he don't intrude. The sooiety have $1,000 toward this end, and sailors' friends have promised a few hundred more, and all who realize how much they owe to this class of men for daily comforts and luxuries which aboundin their homes,should help towards this oause, to make the Bethel an accomplished fact. Inareniou. Chinese Chicken Stealers. Rev. O. C. Wheeler, of San Francisco, has delivered a fiery leoture against the Chinese. He has discovered some peouiiar traits in tne Chinese mode of robbing hen-roosts. - "One morning about 2 o'olook it was very dark a polioeman passing along I street in tbe Chinese settlement heard, as he thought, a rooster crow on the roof of a house. The place attracted his attention and he cautiously reconnoitred. He soon discovered a China man standing up against a chimney on the top of a house, and watched him. It was not long before the Chinaman, peering into the dork in various directions and finding, as he supposed, the 'coast clear,' stepped slightly away from the chimney, slapped his arms against his sides and crowed so very like a cock that tne neaa or a noes, in a neignnor. ing roost answered with a real crow. Then another, farther off, hearing him, responded, and others, more distant still, took np the re frain, until every gallant chanticleer for miles around had given oral testimony to the ele gance of his manners, me thieves Knew tne neighborhood, even the premises where chick ens were kept, but did not know the particu lar spot where the owner had secreted them. The programme was this : A dozen or two or them, more or less, went, each with a dark lantern, stationed in different portions of the town, in neighborhoods where chickens were known to be kept. The cocks that 'fell in' to the chorus, whose key-note was given by the Chinaman on the housetop, unwittingly dis closed to the watching thieves the exact places where they and their families had been secreted for the night and thus enabled the thieves to easily secure and oarry them to. .Chinatown to give cheer to empty stomachs. What Chewing; Gnm 1. DIade of. From the Gincionitl Oommerdai. We have it upon common report that chew ing gum is a substance well known to the youthful part of the community. The qual ities which it possesses at the time that it comes from the confeotioner are all familiar to the youngest of us. It cerjainly seems a very attractive edible. The reason for this is not so hard to una. idiok now muon eat ¬ ing there is in it in proportion to actual weight and cash value. ' But there is more in chew ing gam than is dreamt ot even in juvenile philosophy. One can easily comprehend the main ingredients of candy, bnt who, without being told, would suspect that chewing gum is often only a refined product of petroleum. The time was when the fragrant spruce fur nished the most common material for tbe purpose. But this is no longer the cose. The reader familiar with the processes of refining coal oil is aware that the thick, brown liquid which comes from the earth at one stage of its manufacture is strained through heavy linen cloths. The residuum left after this operation is a dirty, brownish yellow wax that smells abominable. That unpromising sub stance, melted, bleaohed, deodorized and pre pared for commerce, appears in masses that weigh about 100 pounds, resembling oblong blocks of clouded ioe. It has no odor and no taste exoept what belongs to any wax in its purest state. It may be used for many pur poses, but it is not necessary to describe tnem now. The manufacturer of ohewing gum purchases these blocks ready made to his hand, and at onoe melts them down. To 200 pounds of wax he adds thirty pounds of sugar, and gives the mixture a flavor by the use of some essential oil, as lemon or vanilla, and, perhaps, adds some coloring matter. The melted mass is poured out on a clean marble slab and cut in the various shapes known to mastificators. The youthful epicure rarely becomes so luxurious as to demand balsam of tola, but if he does, the manufacturer is ready for him. This rosin, which is obtained from South America, is at first in an almost fluid condi tion. It is the product of a tree known as now hold your jaw, for the name is worse than a whole box of ohewing gam myra spermum toluiferum. .This balsam is boiled by the manufacturer until finally it is brought to suoh a consistency that it can be ran through rollers. It oomes out in the shape of s little slender rod, of s brownish yellow col or, which is cat into pieces, each about two or two and a half Inches long. The balsam may sometimes be mixed with s less costly wax. since its flavor is very marked. The balsam from the "chicle" tree, from Central America, is used m making what is known as snapping gum. It is very docile when worked and moistened, and the process of making is similar to that oi pulling taffy. The original gam exades from th tree and forms in a mass sometimes several pounds in weight. Even in this natural state it would be a very satisfactory substance to keep the teeth at work. It cannot be worn ont. I The Ice -Crop. LltUe Being Gathered From the Hid. ea-Ikt Knth For Interior Ponds. From tbe Poughkeepsie Eagle. ft It is now Feb. 7, and bnt very little ioe has been gathered on the Hudson. Up-nver papers speak of the hopeful look taken by Orrin Denntt. superintendent of the Knick erbocker Ice Company, but we do not see on What he bases his hopes. He has been cred ited with Bavin? that the comnanv will no uoubt get its full crop the last of February or the hrst of March. Everything is against such an opinion, and the indications at this time of writing are that the ice crop this season will be smaller than it has been for years. The companies have always depended upon the ice in the upper Hudson as a last re sort, but there is very little in that region fit to house. From Castleton to Albany it is win- row ice. It is all jammed in, and stands frozen on edge, a jagged, crumbling mass, nued with dirt and sticks from the January freshets. They commenced cutting ioe yes terday at Schodack, but it is of a poor, thin quality. True, they are getting good ioe in side the island near Castleton, but there won't be 100,000 tons of it. At Barrytown they are stacking from a cove, and they are doing the same thing at Staatsburg, and that's the ex tent of ice-gathering on the Hudson at the present time, and the season of harvest is over a month behind. This state of affairs is driving speculators -and agents from -tide water to tne interior, and everywhere they are negotiating for country ponds. At Op ton's lake, in Dutchess County, the ice is nine inches thiok, and a good crop is being gathered there. At Sylvan Lake, the Knick erbocker company is hard at work, and as fast as the ice is cat it is shipped on the Datohess and Colombia railroad to Dutchess Junction, where it is loaded in ice-barges lying at the wharf. A large pond at Herki mer is supplying ioe for the New York Cen tral and Hudson River Railroad Com pany, and about 1,000 tons, will be sent, from there to this xiity, mostly for tbe Johnson Brothers, at the railroad restaurant. One of our city lager-beer breweries is hauling ioe from the Manchester Pond. Up at Morgan Lake, be yond College Hill, the Messrs. Morgan have a large number of men cutting ice seven inches thick, but it is solid water ice of an excellent quality. Mr. Henry D. Myers is negotiating for ioe from points some distanoe from tbe oity outside of the oounty. As yet the ice on Sunfish Cove, south of here, has not been touched, though it is probable that the Mu tual Uenent Uompany will get permission from the railroad authorities to run the ioe across the track to barges to be anohored against the sea-wall on tbe road. Owners of ponds are filled with great expectations as to the probable price they will get for the ioe they contain. Tlie Sultan's Household. A Great Ketinne With Iilgh Duties and Heavy Pay. A correspondent of the Journal de Geneve, writing from Constantinople, gives an inter esting aooount of the organization of Abdul Hamid's household, whioh he says he has ob tained directly from a high officer of the pal ace. After remarking that the Sultan has converted the Yildiz Kiosk, his favorite resi dence, into a sort of Plessis les Tours, sur rounded by thick walls, defended by 30 guns and guarded by a garrison of 3,000 men, the correspondent goes on to say that, notwith standing the present penury of Abdul . Ham id's civil list and the general poverty of the oountry, his wives, concubines, retainers and slaves are little less numerous than those of his predecessors, and the Turkish Court is still the most costly in Europe. The Sultan has lour ohief (Jhamberlains, exclusive ot sev eral who figure in processions on gala days, carrying the emblems of their office a bunch of keys on their backs. Among the latter are the two chief black eunuchs, Bahr Ra moun and Khereddin, who, besides their oth er titles, enjoy that of "Highness," and are members of the most illustrious orders of the Ottoman Empire. Bahr Ramoun is supposed to favor tbe pretensions of Russia, while Khereddin is understood to be a warm friend of the English alliance. . Twenty-three aides- de-camp, at the head of whom is Namyk Pasha, who signed the preliminaries of the peace of Kezanlikvre always on duty at tbe Yildiz Kiosk. ' Five" "massahibs" or talkers are charged with the duty of relieving the te dium of his Majesty's anooonpied moments by lively conversation, by reading aloud, and by retailing in the royal ear the gossip of the capital, with whioh they are supplied by CO spies specially told off for this purpose. The Sultan's health is watched over by five phy sicians, the first of whom ' is a Greek, Dr. Mavrogeni, a member of the illustrious Phan- ariots family of that name. The imperial es tablishment includes four chaplains, or "im aums," and four astrologers. During the war, one of the latter became for awhile an im portant political personage. He predicted the capture of the Shipka Pass, and though it was held by the Turks for two hours only, the prediction was considered to have been ful filled, and he was honored as a true prophet. It was on the advioe of the same astrologer, himself a native of Tunis, that the Sultan summoned Kheireddin Pasha from Tunis, and, at a later period, made him Grand Vizier. Then, there are directors of the private apartments, of the imperial privy purse, and of the palace telegraph, (the last named of whom has the assistance of 10 employes, jnve librarians, and a secretary, who receives and reads the not very numerous petitions address ed to the Sultan by his faithful subjects. A buffoon, a company of Turkish singers, a brass band, (the leader of which is an Ital ian, enjoying the rank and emoluments of a Pasha,) and five pianists, who have the privilege of giving lessons to the prinoes and princesses of tbe imperial family, complete the hierarchy of the "Mabein," or men's de partment, of the nultan s household. The menial duties of the palace are, for the most part, performed by women. The high offioer who communicated these particulars to the correspondent of the Journal de Geneve, be longing naturally to the Mabein, was unable to give him equally minute information touching the organization of the imperial ha rem. The Hultanas, of wnom tnere are lour. and the odalisques, who are reckoned at 80, are guarded by 120 black eunuehs. Many of the latter are waited on by one or two women servants, and in former times the most highly placed of them lived "as luxuriously as prin oes." Among the inferior domestic servants of the Sultan there are 10"table.'mosters,"who cater for tbe palace kitchens and see that the imperial tables are duly supplied witu looa and properly served. Next come 10 . maitres d'hotel, who superintend the ordering of the menus and the cooking oi tne meats, xne cooks and turnspits who receive their com mands number 300, while the services of 200 waiters are required in the different dining rooms of the Yildiz Kiosk. . Besides the in mates of the palace, many persons living in its immediate neighborhood draw by pre scriptive right their daily supplies of food from the imperial kitchens. It is estimated that 800 families, including 4,000 individuals, live in this way at the Sultan's expense. Ten servants are charged with the sole duty of carrying and unfolding the oultan s oarpet when he goes to prayer. Ten otners, called tutundjis, have the care of his Majesty's pipes and tobacco. Ten oatedjis give ail their time to the roasting, grinding and making of his Majesty's coffee. The due order of the im perial wardrobe is assured by tbe constant at tention of 20 properly-qualified employes; 13 others keep an eye on the imperial valise. five armorers are responsible for the perfect -condition of the Sultan's arms, eight men look after the chandelier!, torches and flam beaux, and eight take charge of the aviaries and aquariums. The expenses of such an establishment as that of tbe Yildiz Kiosk are necessarily enormous ; the Sultan's civil list figures in the Turkish budget for a million sterling, but tne writer rrom wnose letter l have quoted the foregoing facts states, on the authority of his offioial informant, that the actual expenses of his Majesty's household, harem, and palaces reacn a total oi at least 2,200,000 annually.
