THE FAMOUS GIBRALTAR.
i\. Visit to the Great Rock in the
Mediterranean.
Great Britain’* Key to the Water Way to
India—lts Military Strength and Arma
ment—Lovely Climatic Conditions.
Letter in New York Tribune.
When I first saw Gibraltar from a distance
of several miles, it presented through the
dim light of early morning the appearance of
a monstrous monolith, which lias been com
pared to a gigantic granite sphinx, whose
shoulders, groins and croup would lie toward
Spain, with the long, broad, loose, flowing
and undulating outlines, like those of a lion
asleep, and whose head, somewhat truncated,
is turned toward Africa, as if with a dreamy
and steadfast deep attention. As I sailed in
to the noble harbor among a myriad of see
going craft and came to anchor near the
United States steamer Nipsic and the Ameri
can yacht Dauntless, the sun was just rising
above the waters of the blue Mediterranean.
Before me rose, to the height of about 1,400
feet, the famous fortress, the Calpe of the
ancients, which was captured from the
Spaniards IGB years ago, the very year that
Marlborough won the battle of Blenheim.
During the American revolutionary war the
Spaniards besieged it for four years, but un
successfully, and were atlength compelled to
raise the siege.
Os late years there has been some idle talk
of restoring Gibraltar to Spain, and Mr.
Bright declared in Parliament that, in his
opinion, it ought to be given back, as it cost
England more than a million of dollars an
nually in time of peace to maintain the fort
ress, exclusive of material, the total outlay
having been upward of two hundred and fifty
millions upon its defenses. Burke held a
different opinion of its importance, ami re
ferred to it .as ‘ a post of power, a post of su
periority, of connection, of commerce: one
which makes us invaluable to our friends
and dreadful to our enemies.” Its import
ance has increased as a coal depot since the
general use of steam, 4.000 steamers having
entered the harbor in 1881 and consumed or
purchased 300,000 tons of coal.
Gibraltar is constantly being strengthened,
both by now works and by improved guns in
the place of the old ones. A one hundred
ton Armstrong breech-loader was brought
r here from Woolwich two days ago, and an
other is expected before the end of the month.
From 5,000 to 6,000 men are constantly sta
tioned here. At present the force consists of
four regiments of infantry and one of artillery,
and as much vigilance is displayed by the
military as if a state of war existed with
their easy-going neighbors of Spain. Between
the possessions of the two countries is a piece
of flat sandy soil, about 1,500 yards in length
and the same in width, known as the ‘’neu
tral ground.” on either side of which the
English and Spanish sentries have been at
tlieir posts within sight of each other ever
since the year 1704!
Lord Napier, of Magda ta, the fiftieth Gov
ernorof Gibraltar, who 1 been here for six
years, will in a few weeks surrender the com
mand to Sir John Adye, one of the Egyptian
heroes, who succeeds him on the Ist of Janu
ary. Napier, who has been a most at ceptable
Governor, will visit the battle-fields of Egypt
before returning to England to be retired
with the rank of field marshal, having served
his country faithfully and most successfully
7for more than half a century. He several
years ago passed his seventieth birthday, but
is still a hale and vigorous man. as I can
testify, after having had a three-hours’gallop
with him on the sands and soil of Spain. At
his residence this morning I witnessed a most
interesting scene, lie received a party of the
Indian native troop 9, who were on
their return voyage after being in
E.ig'and as representatives of the
Eastern Regiments lately serving in
Egypt. There were thirteen officers and
twenty non-commissioned officers and men.
As each one of the former was introduced he
presented the hilt of his sword, after the
Oriental custom, for his Excellency the Gov
ernor to touch, who addressed to each a few
words of welcome in their native tongue, re
ceiving some with a hearty shake of the
hand as lie recognized old acquaintances and
comrades in arms, to the great delight of
those honored by such recognition. This
ceremony concluded, the Governor and those
■ invited to he present proceeded to the corri
dor where the privates and non-commission
ed officers were drawn up in line. They were
fine-looking fellows, representing various
branches of the Indian army, and all bear
ing on their breasts the medal for Egypt,
with clasp, recently received from the
Queen, and mo<t of them also other military
decorations. The Governor had for each a
few kind words, and at the conclusion
of his inspection he addressed them all in
with which language he is per
familiar. Among the deputation were
stalwart Sikhs, Bengal lancersand infantry,
and long-haired Beloochis, who surpassed
the others in picturesqueness. Before going
on board the steamer again, the visitors were
taken|by 4 members of the Governor’s staff and
were shown the fortifications, and heavy
guns were fired for their edification.
The climate of Gibraltar is delicious. This
afternoon, as 1 write by an open window, I
see geraniums and heliotrope in tropical
k luxuriance, and in the Governor’s garden
orange and lemon trees heavily laden with
fruit, the pepper tree full of pink colorod
clusters of berries, the aloes with their gor
geous crimson flowers, and t he stately palms.
There is also a magnificent dragon tree, be
lieved to be at least 1.000 years old. and
a very beautiful vine bearing
an exquisite purple flower known as
the Bou-arville, which clings lovingly to the
convent and grows to a height of sixty feet.
I may mention that there are 456 species of
flowering plants and ferns indigenous to
Gibraltar, and fifty-four which are intro
duced. There are also some fine trees, in
cluding a fir known as the “Prinisapo,”
which is only found in the south of Spain.
Among the interesting sights of Gibraltar
are the wild monkeys, which are frequently
to be seen on the south side of the rock.
There are about thirty-six at present, and
they are,of course protected bylaw, although
somewhat troublesome, frequently carrying
away from the casemates and chambers any
thing portable that may be left lying about.
Such at least was the statement made to me
this morning by an old sergeant, who. in
conducting us through the galleries hewn
of the solid limestone rock, said: "If we
tie these things, those d—d monkeys
carry them off,” A French writer,
whose book I have been glancing
through, states that a Spaniard with whom
he traveled from Seville to Madrid asserted
that'‘the monkeys accupfed the Rock en
tirely, ami were so numerous that no shins
could dare approach land without tite rDk
of being sunk!” These first settlers of Gib
raltra have been always respected alike by
Moors, Spaniards and English, and appear to
be tolerated in a good -Matured way by the
inhabitants. notwithstanding their Occa
sional inroads in search of fruit and stray
chickens. The more? cautious and prudent
long them keep to the pulmitos ami
ickly pear, which they carry off to their
res on the upper rocks, inaccessible to any
ng but goats, of which there are many
thdreds. The fortress can boast of only
Ur cows, consequently the 18.(X)0 inhabit-
Its and 5.000 soldiers stationed here have
'other milk than what is furnished by
jjse useful and rock-climbing creatures.
; The Case of licit, the Artist,
j. Smalley's Cable Letter.
.'he Belt case has created a remarkable
ision in public opinion. Societv and the
mlar element consider Mr. Belt the vic
tim of a conspiracy. The artistic class are
solidly arrayed against him. with the univer
sal support of the press, who attack Justice
Huddleston in a fashion few judges have ex
perienced. Anew trial is improbable. Mr.
Belt’s costs were £IO,OOO, and were subscribed
by private aristocratic friends. The defend
ants costs are nearly £20,000. The animosity
of the parties has been of long standing.

THE WELLESLEY SCANDAL.
A London Actress Welt on the Way to a
English Ducal Coronet.
Loudon Letter.
The case of Colonel Wellesley is one of the
most interesting that has been published for
a long time. * Wellesley, at one period of his
life, might have been regarded as the spoiled
child of fortune. In appearance he was a
specimen of that splendid and almost fault
less beauty which is sometimes to be seen in
the men of the English upper class—tall,
thin, but muscular, fair-haired and with
features at once delicate and distinguished.
While still but a comparative youth he had
reached, through the influence of his rela
tives, the position of colonel in the guards.
Then lie was appointed attache at St. Peters
burg, at which place I may mention he be
came an acquaintance and friend of poor J.
A. MacGahan, the celebrated American
correspondent of the London Daily
News, who passed through the Russian
capital on his return from his wonderful
ride to Khiva. After this Wellesley be
came First Military Secretary at Vienna, and
then public opinion began to cry out against
the extraordinary favors that were thus being
heaped in such rapid succession on the head
of the young soldier. He had, meantime,
married Lord Cowley’s daughter- a marriage
apparently suitable in age, rank and tastes.
Things went well till Wellesley paid along
visit to London, and there lie had the misfor
tune to go to the Gaiety Theater. I have al
ready mentioned this popular place of Lon
don entertainment, and it is certainly, though
not very large, the most significant institu
tion of the kind among us. It is
there that Connie Gilchrist, a snub-nosed atid
silly-looking girl of about 19, wears the Lons
dale diamonds. It is there that, when the
theater itself closes and the stage-door opens,
fashionable and dissipated youth—or, as they
are now called, our jeunesse stage-doorev—
waits, and ladies of the ballet, with a salary
of about $5 or $lO a week, drive off’ in coaches
and four.
Kate Vaughan has long been the belle of
this theater. She lias no histrionic ability.
She has scarcely any voice, but she has a
grace in motion that may certainly be de
scribed as wonderful. Before she met Welles
ley she had already won many hearts, and,
indeed, when he made her acquaintance for
the first time, was on friendly terms with
another member of the aristocracy. From the
latter she agreed, after some persuasion, to fly
witli Wellesley; and there is a funny story
of two special trains being sent from the
Charing Cross depot almost within an hour
of each other —the one bearing Miss Vaughan
away with the new lover, and the other con
veying the discarded and disconsolate friend.
The sequel to the whole business came a few
days ago. Wellesley was brought before the
Divorce Court by his wife, made no defense,
and, of course, was immediately non-suited.
The story now goes that he intends immedi
ately to make Kate his wife, and, if this be
true, her fortune will certainly be a curious
one. Colonel Wellesley, if Ido not mistake,
is the heir presumptive to the Duke of Well
ington, and the Duke is childless and upward
of seventy. If all this be true, Kate, the
danseuse, will becom Kate, the duchess. It
is not the first time that the aristocracy has
been recruited from the boards of the British
stage.

ball dress, and as the reception took place by
gaslight, the variety added to the effective
brilliancy of the scene.

It would seem strange that the Democrats,
in the face of a law requiring white ballots,
should go to the trouble of preparing plates
to make black ballots and expect them to be
counted as legal. The purpose was to destroy
the sec res v in voting which the law is in
tended to protect. The lesson is a severe one,
but it will teach the Democracy that laws
must be respected.

GENERAL SHERMAN’S RELIGION,
What Almost Broke His Heart—Hi* l ,
for Hi* Sou Tom, Who Is a Priest.
11. .T. R. in the Philadelphia Press.
Speaking of General Sherman. I am re
minded of the report, printed somewhere,
that he had become a Roman Catholic. The
other day he denounced the story in a very
emphatic manner as a d—d lie. [Let me
here suggest to the numerous Quakers in
Philadelphia that the objectionable word is
Sherman’s, not mine. I merely record his
tory.] The report probably grew out of the
fact that the General’s eldest son, Thomas
Ewing Sherman, delivered a lecture recently
in Maryland on the Inquisition. “Tom,”
the name he was formerly known by, has
been studying for the priesthood for three
or four years, and will join the order of
Jesuits. The course of this son of General
Sherman, when he announced to liis father
his determination, was a terrible
blow to the old warrior, and
he will probably never fully recover
from it. No denial that the General is to
join the Catholic church is necessary. When
you hear that 1 have joined an Italian opera
company and that Frank McLaughlin has
joined the minstrels, then you may believe
the Catholic story about the General of the
army. General Sherman had (and probably
yet has) the greatest love for Tom. and the
greatest pride and hope in his future. He
desired that Tom should succeed him as ’he
head of the family and be his successor in all
his business transactions. He had intended
to leave all his priceless papers and docu
ments with his eldest son, and also his mem
oirs (which will be mighty interesting read
ing, to use Mr. Greeley’s expression), to be
published after his death. Indeed, he wanted
Tom for a companion in his declining years,
and had hoped that he could attend to all
the family business. But the hoy followed
the religion of his mother, and will one day
be a big light in the holy church. General
Sherman is an indulgent father, a faultless
husband and a friend who cannot be stam
peded by misfortune, but if there was any
thing he did not want his son to be it was a
Catholic priest. General Sherman is as free
a thinker as you ever saw. He doesn’t care a
copper cent for the fashionable religion of
the world, which goes to church in silks, vel
vets. satins, ribbons, and feathers and never
hears a word of the sermon, and he docs not
respect forms or tenets; but lie has that
Christian religion that makes every man a
brother and every woman a sis er. General
Sherman is a moral man, but makes no pro
fessions. Ido not often see him at church,
but knowing his pure life and devotional
nature. I have no doubt he goes to church as
often as your devout correspondent.
General Sherman’* Catholic Son.
New York Tribune.
Mr. Thomas E. Sherman, a son of General
Sherman, is a Roman Catholic, and is not
only studying for the priesthood, but in
tends to become a Jesuit. He recently de
livered a lecture before the students of Loy
ola College on “The Inquisition.” in which
he defended that institution. He likened
the church to a beautiful mansion orna
mented with all that was precious in the
sight of man. This sublime structure had a
dark, damp and dismal cellar, in which some
of the family persisted in living while the
others resided above. In course of time
those in the cellar became sick, and bred con
tagious diseases, which threatened Hue lives
of the upper residents. The obnoxious crea
tures, to obtain light, picked holes in the
wail, which threatened to crumble the man
sion. The people above, to save themselves,
cast out their brethren below. So it is with
the Catholic church. It had the Inquisition
to prevent the spreading of heretical disease.
In America, where there is so much said of
the Court of Inquiry, the Puritans of New
England burned people at the stake and in
dulged in other horrible butcheries, which
the Inquisition did not.
A HEROINE’S CAREER.
The Incidents in the Tragic but most Heroic
Life of Anna Meeker.
National Republican, Monday.
Anna Meeker died at her boarding-house,
in the northwestern part of the city, last
Saturday morning, after a very brief illness,
of pneumonia. The life thus ended was one
of the most tragic, and yet most heroic order.
It was patiently lived, and its sharp termina
tion, though sad enough, was one of its most
irrateful points. Every one remembers the
Ute outbreak a little more than two years
ago, in which Agent Meeker was murdered.
The girl who died last Saturday was Agent
Meeker’s daughter. For some time previous
to her father’s appointment to office the fam
ily had been in closely straighted circum
stances. Anna ’..ad been- employed in a tent
and awning maker’s establishment at Den
ver. where the amount of labor she was
obliged to perforin was unduly large in pro
portion to the amount of money she re
ceived for performing it. When
her father took charge of the agency
she decided to go there with him. One of
her friends, an elderly gentleman now living
in Washington, warned her against this step,
representing the da gers and hardships of
existence on that remote frontier, among
savages of a cruel and surly character. "I
will go. all the same,” she answered him.
“If mother can stand it, I can, and she will
want my companionship,' for she is old, and
it will be very lonesome and very hard for
her ofit there;” and she went.
The life was hard enough, but by her own
accounts of it they got on very well and even
happily, until one day there came a horror
that made their little corner of the moun
tains fearful forever in the memory of the
whole country. On that bloody morning
Anna Meeker saw her father butchered, anil
her mother suffer far worse than death be
fore his dying eyes. The whole story of
what was then done never has been, and
never can be told. It conies back now.
brought up by this last result of it, with a
pity and a terror in it none the
less vivid by reason of the time
that has intervened. Anna was car
ried off by the Indians, and for weeks,
that must have been ages of desnair, she was
kept a captive among them, subject to treat
ment brutal bevond all thought, much less
all naming. When at last she got away, her
health, that never had been sound, was hope
lessly broken, and burdened with infections
from which there could be no escape short of
the grave. At first she was taken up by some
of those sentimentalists, who are never lack
ing in attention to anew object where no
toriety is involved, hut when public interest
began to slacken, and no more talk was to be
had out of a connection with her ease, these
people gradually wore away and left her, all
alone in the world as she was, to fight for
herself as best she might. Somehow she got
to Washington, ad here for months, sick
and starving, she struggled to find some
means by which she might maintain herself.
It would have been well enough with her
had not the ladies who at first interested
themselves in her behalf, rich and comfort
able ladies, who should have had humanity
enough to consider the question of her utter
innocence and helplessness, dropped her as
soon as they learned the nature of the
troubles she had known among her captors.
Then, after all manner of disheartening diffi
culties, she found a minor place in one of
the bureaus of the Interior Department,
which she held until Mr. Teller became Sec
retary. To Mr. Teller, who had known her
father, and who knew her story, she ap
pealed. and in compassion for her hapless
state he promoted her to a place in his own
office, which she held during the brief re
mainder of her days. Whoever has had oc
casion of late to pass through the smalt room
between the office of the Secretary and that
of the Assistant Secretary may have uoticed
a great screen up near the window, from be
hind which came the rattle of a type-writing
machine. It was Miss Meeker who operated
this instrument. Site was skilled in its use. ,
very accurate, and faithful. Few people,
even of those about the office, ever saw her, j
and few of these knew her name or history, j
She was at her work for the last time the day I
after Christmas. Wednesday she was too ill
to leave her room, and her end came rapidly
and not without welcome.
“TAFFY.”
The Peculiar Opcrjlt* °* *J®r o,ne Hop
kins—Specimen Verse*.
New York Spocwtl t Post-Dispatch.
Mr. Jerome Hopkins is by no means “an
every-day young man” or he would not have
conceived the idea of writing an operetta en
titled, “Taffy and Old Munch” with sugar,
pepper, candy, cake and syrup for charac
ters. Upon his programme Mr. Hopkins
prints the following statement: “Twenty
eight years of New York musical life have
so soaked me with the nastiness of the lyric
stage that my very bones crj- out for some
thing pure and innocent in the personnel as
well as in the sentiment of opera.” The re- j
spouse to this cry of Mr. Hopkins’ bones is I
“Taffy.” Mr. Hopkins himself says that it |
is “arrant nonsense,” a conclusion ini
which we cordially agree. Old Munch I
is a cannibal with a hankering for j
little children, and especially for the
little girl named Taffy. But he finally ]
turns out to be Taffy’s own father, supposed
to iiave died long since. Certainly, nothing |
could be more “pure and innocent in senti- j
merit” than this. Perhaps Taffy’s song will
give a tolerably correct idea of its poetic
turn of thought. This is it:
My name Is little Taffy.
Because I am so laughy.
I suppose it is so.
For laugh will flow.
Ana so uiy name is Taffy.
I am a little lady,
Although to sing I’m ’fraidy*
My uncle Sam
Bay* that I am
A pretty little lady,
Some day I shall he married.
And to the church bo carried.
Then I’ll be funned
I’ll he so grand,
Some day when 1 am married.
Mr. Hopkins, it is scarcely necessary to
say, is the composer of his own libretto as
well as of the music. He has undoubtedly
intended this operetta for the amusement of
very young children, and we should think
it accomplished that end. It was performed
at Steinway Hall by children who had been
very well trained, and who seemed to enjoy
what they were doing even more than the
audience did.
A BATTLE WITHOUT ORDERS.
A Remark in General Logan’s Speech on the
Porter Case Attract* Much Attention,
Washington Special.
A remark in Senator Logan’s speech in the
Fitz John Porter case, to the effect that a
battle of considerable proportions had been
fought in the Atlanta campaign without a
single order from the commanding general,
lias attracted some attention, and curiosity
has been directed to the identification of the
occasion alluded to. The fact seems to be
that the battle of which General Logan
speaks is not known in history by a distinct
ive name, but was one of the series of en
gagements before Atlanta while Sherman
was moving on the rebel stronghold, opposed
at every step of the way by a stubborn ene
my. The Senator himself, when asked by
your correspondent to name the battle to
which he referred, made an explanation in
substance to the above effect.
Your correspondent called upon General
Sherman, who, of course, w s the General
meant who had issued no orders for the con
duct of the battle alluded to, in order to se
cure,* if possible, from him a reminiscence of
the occasion. General Sherman said:
“I have not read General Logan’s speech in
the record, having only seen such abstracts
as the newspapers published. Undoubtedly
the Senator is well fortilied with authorities
for all his statements. I would not venture
art opinion upon his speech until I have seen
it, as he will finally have it printed, carefully
revised and corrected in the record, when it
will he open to criticism.”
“Do you remember any distinct occurrence
such ns he is reported in the papers as hav
ing stated? In other words, do you remem
ber a battle having been fought in the Atlan
ta campaign without ati order from you us to
its direction?”
“No, 1 do not remember any special battle
of that kind, but there were lots of days
when we had hard fighting, a id such a thing,
no doubt, happened. Owing to the circum
stances under which we were operating, our
lines were about fourteen miles long, and we
were constantly compressing them. It was
not necessary to give special order to fight,
because every officer had instructions to light
every chance he got. It was fight all the
time. Whenever a corps commander met
the enemy, he knew it was his business to go
in. There was a constant order, so to speak,
to strike a head wherever it was raised, so,
while I do not remember any specific occa
sion where a battle took place without orders,
there was a great deal of that kind of fight
ing and several occasions when such a thing
might be alleged to have occurred entirely
within the limit of the facts. Nevertheless,
I do not call to mind the particular day to
which Logan refers, but I speak only from
what I have seen in the papers, and, there
fore, cannot say anything positive about it.”
