LOSS OP THE TONQUIN.
The eighth da' of September, 1810
marked an epoch in the mercantile
history of the United States, for it
was on that date that the ship Ton
quin, Captain Jonathan Thorn, (who
was Lieutenant in the C. S. Kavy on
leave of absence granted for the pur
pose of taking charge of the vessel on
its present voyage) set sail from the
port of 'ew York bound round the
Horn, to establish a trading post at
the mouth of the Columbia Hiver, on
the Pacilic coast
As the Tonquin spread her snowy
Bails and stood out to sea under the
convoy of the frigate Constitution,
which was detailed to see her safe on
her way beyond the danger of moles
tation from British war-vessels, the
wharves of the city were lined with
spectator., but none were more inter
ested than the projector of the
scheme, John Jacob Astor, the
founder of the wealthy family of that
name.
Although an adopted citizen of the
United States, Mr. Astor had done
more to develop the resources of the
country than perhaps any other man
in America.
He, in company with some of our
statesmen, had long looked with jeal
ous eyes upon the Hudson Bay Fur
Company, as that gigantic monopoly
yearly encroached more and more on
our territory in the great northwest,
until the indefatigable merchant de
termined to put a rival corporation in
the Held and demanded that share
of peltry which by right belonged to
a citizen of the United States; con
sequently he applied for, and received
a charter from the National Govern
men, under the name of the Pacific
Fur Company, which granted per
mission to said sompany and its rep
resentatives to trade with the Indians
and capture fur-bearing animals any
where within the limits of the United
States and west of the Bocky Moun
tains. Although the enterprise was sup
posed to be a stock company, yet
every dollar advanced came from the
coffers of Mr. Astor, who had, it
must be known, accumulated his for
tune in the fur trade, buying the
skins through agents from individual
trappers and Canadian hunters and
selling the same in the Chinese
market at an enormous profit.
Associated with Mr. Astor, how
ever, were four gentlemen, practically
experienced in traffic with the In
dians and having knowledge of the
Tfae business.
Tliey were Mr. Alexander McKay,
"who had accomranied Sir Alexander
Mackenzie on both his expeditions to
the.northweast coast of America, in
1789 and 1783, and Messrs. Duncan
Macdongal and Donald M'Kenzie.
These former, as their names imply,
were Scotchmen, and the fourth
s'member was Mr. William Price
-Hunt, of New Jersey.
To this quartette, Mr. Astor
awarded vone-half the stock of the
-company; they to contribute their
proportionate share toward the run
ning expenses of the enterprise after
the business had become established.
Previous to the departure of the
Touquin, Mr. Astor despatched a
land force to the mouth of the Co
lumbia Biver in charge of Mr. Hunt,
a gigantic undertaking for thoe
days, but with this expedition we
have nothing to do, although it was
replete with startling incident which
would bo of great interest to lovers of
adventure.
The foregoing introduction is
necessary in order that the reader
may understand why so much inter
est was centered in the departure of
the first ship belonging to the Pacific
JFur Company.
A beautiful morning in March,
3811, the Tonquin entered the Co
lumbia Biver, but the spirits of her
crew were dampened, and a feeling of
sadness permeated the whole ship,
for several lives had been sacrificed in
attempting to discover the intricate
channel that pierces the bar which
guards the mouth of the stream.
Some of the sailors had launched
away in a small boat to precede the
tcssgI and nilot her in to an anchor
age, but the rushing torrent capsized
the little craft and ' the hardy ad
venturers were swept away to meet
their doom.
Captain Thorn was a courageous
and persistent man and he boldlyr
stood in towards the land. As the
ship neared the shore his practised
eye revealed to him the place where
-was the deepest water on the bar, and
lie unhesitatingly pushed onward,
and was soon safe within the bay,
ridintf auietly a quarter of mile or so
from land.
Several days wereoccupied in select
ing a site for the establishment of a
tTading-post and the erection . of a
tort and when the place was decided
upon the founding of Astoria, now
one of the (most important seaports
on the Pacific coast, was begun.
The new-comers were kindly re
ceived by the Indians, and their so
journ in the wilderness seemed! to
promise both pleasure and profit.
As soon as a house had been erected
a portion of the goods for traffic were
landed and stored away, and then
the Tonquin, with the balance of her
cargo and nearly half the force, sailed
to the northward to trade with the
Indians aloncr the coast
There were twenty-four souls on
board, including Lamazee, an inter
preter, and Mr. M'Kay in charge of
the business department, and Capt.
Thorn in command of the vessel.
Several days after leaving the
mouth of the Columbia, Vancouver
Island was sighted and the master
prepared to enter the harbor of
Neweetee.
"No go there!" exclaimed Lamazee
in alarm, pointing toward the shore.
"S'pose him do, Injuns kill all."
"Indians kill all," laughed Capt.
Thorn. "Why, vou poor fool, what
do you suppose we have got those
'barkers' with us for?" pointing to
two small cannon lashed in the waist
of the ves el. "They would blow
the whole tribe into the Pacific.'
But the interpreter shook his head
and replied:
"Maybe yes, maybe no. Old
Wicananish see white man thunder
before. lie no 'fraid."
"Neither are we," and the deter
mined captain pushed on into the
harbor.
Scarcely was the anchor down when
a canoe came alongside, which con
tained the two "sons of the chief.
They held up to view several skins
of the sea-otter, one of the most
valuable pelts to be obtained in
America.
These caused them to be cordially
welcomed by the white men, and they
were invited on board.
The young chiefs presented the furs
to the new-comers as gifts of welcome,
although they did not refuse to accept
in return trinkets from the white
men, which in their eyes were far
more than an equTvalentor the skins.
"We will not begin to trade to
day, " remarked Mr. M'Kay to Captain
Thorn. "These young savages will
return to their people and display
their treasures, which will whet the
appetites of the others, and to-mor
row you will see our decks piled up
witm puiui.y.
After the Indians had been shown
about the ship, they besought Mr.
M'Kay to come on shore and be pre
sented to Wicananish. This invita
tion the Scotchman was pleased to ac
cept, and in company with one of his
clerks, prepared to land.
But as he was entering the cabin
to attire himself for the trip, Lama
zee, the interpreter, plucked him by
the sleeve ana whispered:
"'Spose the white man goes to the
wigwam of Wicananish, let the sons
of Wicananish stay in the big canoe
that flies before the wind like a bird
of the air. "
The knowing look upon the inter
preter's face, as well as his words,
strongly impressed the trader, and
approaching the young Indian he said
in a haughty manner:
"If the rich white man, who has
brought many presents to his led
brothers, should visit the wigwam ot
his chief, the sons of the great Wi
cananish should be willing to remain
on board his vessel, that his friends
whom hp leaves behind may not be
lonesome. "
The natives comprehended his
meaning, and without vouchsafing a
reply in words seated themselves upon
the deck as though perfectly willing
to act as hostages for the safety of
their father's guests.
The ready acquiescence of the young
savages was not without its effect on
Mr. M'Kay, and he, with another
member of the expedition, at once
went on shore, where they were cor
dially received by the aborigines.
On board the Tonquin, the day and
following night passed quietly and
without special incident, but on the
succeeding morning swarms of In
dians put off to the vessel and clam
bered to the deck, each supplied with
one or more skins of fur-bearing ani
mals which were indigenous to that
section of the country.
Mr. M'Kay had not yet retarned,
but Capt Thorn determined to com
mence business, consequently he or
dered the hatches opened and spread
before his dusky visitors a tempting
array of blankets, etc., expecting a
prompt and profitable sale.
Now Capt Thorn was more- of a
sailor than a trader. He was not
proficient in the wily arts that are
necessary for a man to- possess, if he
would be successful in dealing with
any uncivilized race of people.
He thought that it was only re
quisite to display his wares, and that
the Indians would yield up the pre
cious skins for whatever he saw fit to
award them.
The Indians, however, were not so
eager and simple as the mariner sup
posed he would find them, for they
had learned the art of bargaining and
the value of merchandize from the
casual traders who had previously
visited the coast
They were guided also by a shrewd
old sub-chief named Nookamiss, who
had grown gray in traffic with New
England skippers, and prided himself
on his acuteness. His opinion seemed
to regulate the market
When Capt Thorn made what he
considered a liberal offer for an otter
skin, the Indian treated it with
scorn and asked more than double.
His comrades took the cue from
him and not a pelt was to he obtained
at a reasonable rate. The cunning
savage, however, had mistaken his
man; the captain wouia not increase
his bid so much as a single trinket
The interpreter, who seemed to
maintain peace aud promote th? in
terests of his employers, approached
Nookamiss, and addressing him in
his own language, said:
"My brother does not know the
great white chief, who has brought
the big canoe to these shores He
has but one heart and one tongue.
What he has said, he has said. If he
offiers one knife for one skin he will
not give two. Let Nookamiss- re
member." But the Indian turned with con
tempt upon the interpreter, ana
scornfully replied: "Lamozee has
dwelt so long among the white men
that he forgets he is an Indian.
Soon his tongue will refuse to speak
the language of his fathers. If uhe
white chief has but one heart, so has
Nookamiss," and the old savage left
the would-be peace-maker in disgust
Lamazee, of all the Tonquin's peo-
pie, seemed to observe the cloud j land observed a single individual ap
gathering upon the social horizon, j pear on the deck of the Tonquin and
and he felt great concern for the apparently signal them to approach,
safety of his employers. j With some trepidation they put off
Again and again he besought Capt ! and cautiously neared the vessel, but
Thorn to store away his goods and , meeting with no opposition they
not attempt further trade at that
aoteiiipu
time but to stand ready in case of an
outbreak, but the sailor laughed at
his red friend's fears and persisted in
the mistake that many another, be
fore and since, has made, of ignoring
an unseen danger, and despising a
sleeping enemy. Impetuously he
paced the deck of his vessel, his foot
steps followed by the persistent In
dian Nookamiss, who at every turn
held up anoth&r skin which he wished
to barter at his own Trice.
At length finding that the captain
was obdurate, the manner of the sav
age changed and he began to upbraid
the white man for his penuriousness
and to ridicule him for his lack of
knowledge of mercantile affas. TMs
was too much fox ijbie qmek'-fimpfa
sailor. Driven frantic by the In
dian's jibes, the doughty mariner
seized trie p"elt from his tormentor's
hand and vigorously rubbed it on the
swarthy face of the owner, after
which he unceremoniously kicked the
offender over the rail of the vessel,
throwing the otter-skin, source of the
trouble, after him.
The Indians who were on board the
ship, -stood aghast at the indignity
and insult heapejj upon their chief,
and hurried to iqllow Eim on shore,
while the interpreter in great alarm
besought the captain to prepare for
instant departure.
Meanwhile Mr. McKay and his com
panion, not knowing what had occur
red, put off to the ship having been
treated in the most friendly manner
by old Wicananish.
Upon reaching the Tonquin these
two men, although old Indian
traders, and familiar with the dispo
sition of the aborigines, seemed to
feel no great alarm at the turn affairs
had taken. They were encouraged in
their belief of security by the two
hostages who laughed at the matter
and ridiculed the old chiefs actions
as heartily as anybody.
The day and night that followed
passed sereneiy, but with the morning
sun came several canoes whose occu
pants, appearing to be unarmed and
supplied with a goodly array of skins,
were allowed to come on board, until
more than two hundred thronged the
deck.
A grave error in the white men to
allow so many savages a foothold
upon their vessel at one time; but
they seemed peaceful and anxious
now to trade at the terms offered by
Captain Thorn the day before, conse
quently a hurried barter commenced.
The savages in nearly every case
demanded knives in return for pelts.
This circumstance at last began to
arouse the suspicions of Captain
Thorn, and although late he accepted
the advice of the interpreter and
ordered the ship gotten underweight
The trade did not at once cease,
bat was carried on by Mr. M'Kay Lnd1
the clerks. Seven of the sailors went
aloft to loosen the sails while the
others- manned the windlass.
When the anchor was- nearly up,
the raptain in a loud and peremptory
tone- ordered the ship to be cleared.
At this a signal yell was given,
which? was echoed on every side, and
in an instant knives and war-clubs
were brandished, and the: savages
rushed upon their victims.
The first to receive the Ivsrr of the
Indians was young Lewis, the ship's
clerk. Ete was leaning with folded
arms over a bale of blankets, engaged
in bargaining, when he was stabbed
in the back, and fell, seriously
wounded, down the companion-way,
into the cabin.
In the mean time Captain. Thorn
made a desperate fight against fear
ful odds. He was a powerful man,
but he was caught without weapons.
He was singled out by Shewish, a
young chief,, who rushed upon him
at the first, outbreak.
The mariner had but time to draw
a clasp-knife, with which at a single
blow, he laid the savage dead at his
feet But he was no match lor the
horde of exasperated demons-around
him, and he soon fell, covered with
many wounds.
The deck of the Tonquin was now
a scene of aarnage. The sevea sailors
who had gone aloft to loosen the sails,
looked upon the sight beneath them
with horror.
Knowing that loaded muskets were
kept in the cabin, they resolved to
make an attempt to reach them.
Beaching the deck three of their
number were laid low, but four suc
ceeded in joining the wounded clerk
in his place of retreat.
Here they barricaded the cabin
door, broke holes through the companion-way,
and with the muskets
opened a brisk fire which soon cleared
the deck.
Thus far the Indian interpreter,
from whom these particulars are de
rived, had been an eye-witness of the
deadly conflict. He had taken no
j part in it and had been spared by the
natives as being of their race. In the
confusion of the moment he took
refuge with the rest, in the canoes.
The survivors of the crew now
sallied forth, and discharged some of
the deck guns, which did great execu
tion among the canoes, and drove all
the savages to the shore.
During the night, Lewis prevailed
upon his four uninjured companions
to seek safety in flight, refusing to
accompany them himseli, however,
saying that he could not live long,
and would only be an encumbrance to
them.
Consequently the sailors put water
and provisions into a boat, and stole
away, but it may he well here to state
that they met with a fate worse than
that of their companions, for adverse
winds drove them on shore where
they were captured by the Indians
and put through the most excruciat
ing tortures.
In the morning the savages on the
clambered over the rail
Not a soul was in sight and feeling
sure of their prize they quickly began
the work of devastation.
The interpreter who had followed
them was standing in the main-chqins
when he felt a sudden jar followed by
a terrific explosion, and found him
self hurled through the " air to be
plunged into the water of the harbor.
Bising to the surface, a scene of
ruin and death awaited him. Of the
200 or more Indians who had clam-
i bered to the deck of the ship scarce
one remained uninjured, while the
noble craft itself had been rent to
atoms, and her shattered and riven
timbers floated about all that was
lefj) pj Jhe gnce gallant vessel.
Lewis, 'the clerk, had effected a
most terrible revenge. He had waited
until the Indians had swarmed on
board, and then, with torch in hand,
had dragged his wounded body to the
magazine and without hesitation
dropped the flaming brand into a keg
of powder, which exploding, hurled
himself and his enemies to destruc
tion. Months afterward this sad story
was brought to the trading-post at
Astoria by the faithful interpreter
Lamazee, and a shadow of gloom
overspread the feelings of the com
pany which was not dispelled until
the arrival of Mr. Hunt with the
land-party, when new life was en
thused among the occupants of the
fort, and members of the Pacific Fur
Company began to feel that they had
really established themselves upon
the banks of the Columbia Eiver,
although the promoters of the enter
prise long bemoaned the precious
lives which had been sacrificed
through the mistaken management
of Mr. McKay and Captain Thorn,
which resulted in the loss of the
Tonquin and the massacre of her
crew. Yankee Blade.
The Origin of the Ear.
When the fish came ashore, its wa
ter-breathing apparatus was no longer
of any use to it, says McClure's Mag
azine. At first it had to keep it on,
for it tpok a long time to perfect the
air-breathing apparatus which was to
replace it But when this was ready
the problem was, what to do with
the earlier organ?
Nature is exceedingly economical,
and could not throw all this mechan
ism away. In fact aature almost
never parts with any structure she
has once made. What she does is to
change it into something: else. Con
versely, nature seldom makes any
thing new; her method of creation as-
to adapt something old.
Now when natare started out to
manufacture ears, she made them out
of the old breathing apparatus. She
saw that if water could pas-S' through
a hole in fche neck, aound csuld pass
likewise, and she S3t to work upon

Miners Don't Like It.
A resident in New York;, who
passed nearly twenty-five years m the
anthracite csal mines of Pennsylva
nia, says tha few miners can easily
shake off the horror that seizes a man
up3n finding himself alone at ths bot
tom of a mine, with the- knowledge
that there is so other human being
within call. It sometimes happens
that a miner,, absorbed im his work,
suddenly realkes that all but himself
have gone. The place is as safe from
ordinary accicSents then as- at any
time,' and no other living' creature
mora dangerosas than a blind usule
shares the miner's solitude,- but. he
finds-it impossible long to keep off
the pressing: terror, and, halt
ashamed, but complstely conquered,
he picks up his dinner pail and gropes
his way to the upper air.

THE AMERICAN CONSUL.
Wkat Is Expected of This Interesting axi
Usef vl Functionary.
A consul Is expected to learn the
language, laws, customs, and com
merce of the country In which he re.
sides. Having spent perhaps years
in doing this, why should he be re
quired on a change of administration
to give way to a new officer who, af
ter learning the consular duties and
accomnlishments. will himself be put
out by another new beginner? The
rotation system imay be democratic,
but it is injurious to ourl oreign serv
ice. The duties of a consul are often
important, requiring training and
experience. If Americans die abroad,
and away from their' families, he
must look after their property and
estates, accounting for the same to the
representative of the deceased per
son or to the United States Treasury.
It is his duty to be present at and
certify to the department the legality
of marriages of United States citi
zens, though the marriage ceremony
itself must be solemnized by a civil
or church official of the land where
it occurs.
Passports are vised, or certified to,
by the consul, and it is his duty to
settle the disputes, which are endless,
between Ameriean ship-masters and
seamen. He must protect and advise
citizens of his country who have been
wrongfully arrested, or whose busi
ness rights or interests under any
treaty have been interfered with.

politics that he thinks may be of
special yaliie or interest to our people.
These Communications are usually
published by the State Department
for distribution in monthly pam
phlets under the title, "Consular Ke
ports." They frequently contain in
formation of great value.
The United' States imports every
year more than 3800,000,000 worth
of goods from abroad. The duty col
lected on them, despite the fact that
many are on the free list, amounts to
nearly $200,000,000.
All invoices of these immense ship
ments of goods must, first of all, be
presented to the Counsul for exami
nation as to their cost and value.
Without the Consul's official declara
tion that the facts have been stated
in the invoice not one dollar's worth
of the goods is permitted to ' enter at
the American Custom House.
In the examination and legaliza
tion of the invoices the Consul be
comes a close agent and aid of the
Custom Houses and the Department
of the Treasury, with both of which
he is in constant communication.
Unfitness for his duty, from neglect
or lack of training, may cost the
Treasury and the people large sums
of money.
Every invoice legalized costs the
shipper $2.50, and the fees so collected
more than support the whole consular
system.
The United States have altogether
some 250 consular posts scattered
over the worid. Many of these, how
ever, are but subordinate consulates
or agencies, under the control of the
nearest consul- Some of theuo, even
as consulships, are, owing to want of
Gommerce, unimportant and not self
sustaining. Usually at the capital of each
foreign State a Consulate-General is
established, whose chief officer, in ad
ditico to the duttes of that post, has
a certain limited control of the other
Consulates in his district.
The line between the dutie of
diplomatic officers and Consuls is not
precisely defined, bat in general the
diplomats are political, the Consuls
commercial agents f their country.
The: diplomatic posts are usually
filled by Ministers and Envoys, who
look especially after-the political interests-and
treaties between nations.

where, the offices of United States
Ministers resident and Consul-Generai
are combined. Youth's Companion-
