The governor, who has taken for a long time a great interest in Arctic explorations, caused an ex traordinary exploring party to bo sent out to hunt the tracks of the Jean nette, when he learned that fears were entertained that misfortune had over taken her and that relief expeditions were being organized in her interest by the different governments. Knowing the delays incidental to such govern ment action, he at once equipped and sent out on his own account, a party of the most experienced and reliable ex plorers at his command, with powers and positive instructions. These men at once entered into the undertaking with all their souls and stuck to their work, despite the most dangerous ob stacles, until they found traces of the lost ship, and finally overtook her. The people aboard the Jeannette were much astonished when they were in formed by the Siberian explorers that they had become the object of solici tude of all the civilized nations of the world, and that nearly all the Christian governments were preparing to make appropriations to fit out vessels looking to a general search for what was gen erally feared would prove to be only their remains. After ascertaining that the JeannettfKvas absolutely safe and that all on board were well and fully provided for, the Siberians hastened back to report the good news for which the governor had sent them and the whole scientific world . was anxiously awaiting. The governor of Siberia at once dispatched special couriers with the news to have it get to London with all possible speed, and it reached Lon don a few minutes ago. The history of the Jeannette is as follows: In July, 1875, Captain, now Sir Allen Young, who "was a volunteer in the expedition of Sir Leopold McClintock in 1859, which definitely settled the question of Sir John Frank lin's fate, sailed on a private expedi tion, fitted out partly at his own ex penso and partly at that of Lady Franklin. His vessel was the Pando ra, a bark-rigged steam yacht, 420 tons, purchased of the government, by which it had been built in 1861, for a naval dispatch boat. His object was, if pos sible, to go through the northwest pas sage by the route which Sir .John Franklin took, and incidentally to re cover the records which Sir John, it is believed, must have deposited in the vicinity of King William's Land. Capt. Young succeeded in getting within twenty miles of King William's Land, but at that point found the ice impenetrable, and returned the same season, arriving in England in Octo ber. The next year he had intended to renew the effort, but was sent out in the Pandora by the British govern ment with supplies for the Alert and Discovery. These, as it happened, were never received, being deposited at Littleton island, the former camping place of Capt. Buddington, at which place Capt. Kares did not call. The Pandora was afterward sold to James Gordon Bennett, of the New York Herald, who changed her name to the Jeannette, and sent her out on a voy age of discovery by way of Behring Strait. She sailed under American colors from San Francisco, July 8, 1879, commanded by ofllcers of the United States navy, at the head of whom were Lieut. George W. Do Long and Lieut. Charles W. Chipp, who had considerable Arctic experience on board the Juniata, in 1873, when she went in search of Capt. Buddington's portion of the Polaris people.

Fortitude is the guard and support of other virtues. Strive and encourage a mind and will of your own. Never be persuaded contrary to your better judgment. The heart is the only thing that is better by being broken. Choose those companions who ad minister to your improvement. It's easy finding reasons why other people should be good-natured. Take life just as God gives it to you, and make it beautiful as you can. The noblest deeds are often done whore no eye but God's can see them. Allowing the "blues" to master you is a sure way of cutting your life short. The man who sits down on the road to success and waits for a free ride is sure to be left. One of life's hardest lessons from the cradle to the grave is waiting. We send our ships out but cannot patiently await their return. No persons, be they in ever so humble circumstances, but what have some quality of mind that entitles them to an equality with their fellow-beings. A man who is unable to discover any errors or mistakes in the opinions ho formerly held, is not likely to ad vance very fast in the requirement of knowledge. To succeed in any of life,s endeavors, bo our talents what they may, we re quire perseverance, decision and tena city of will to reach tho full measure of success. From the very hovels of poverty and destitution, wo may, with self-reliance, wreath about our heads laurels of un dying fame and receive as a reward for our labors a crown of eternal life. He understands liberty aright who makes his own depend upon that of others. True liberty does not permit the enfranchisement of one's self through the enslavement of some one else. s w ..
