We anchored near Mr. Slrong'a statTon ; found all
tbe missionaries in their usual health, except Mra.
Logan, who bad been quite ill, but was somewhat I
aboot 35 miles, and, in the narrowest place, 750
yards wide. It was here that Xenes boilt his bridge
of boats ; and also where Byron swan across in 1810.
Ho was an hoar and five minutes in performing the
taat, and owing to the rapidity of the current, bo
calculated that tbe distance swam was over four
miles. This strait is comm anded by two strong castles
on each side called (' Dardanelles," and this name
is often applied to the strait at tbe entrance of the
Hellespont where the distance across is 2 miles and a
quarter, and where are 2 castles opposite eaeh other.
Further up tbe strait where tbe width is 1500 yards,
are the other two eastles. In eaoh of these castles
are seven great guns which fire granite balls. Tbey
are ol brass, 22 feet long, and with a bore of 28 inches
in diameter. As these guns are a little elevated the
balls cross the water from side to side. There tooo
ster guns are not mounted, but lie on tbe paved
floor, with their breech against a wall. They cannot
be pointed, and tbe gunner must wait till the vessel
he intends to fire at come in range. It takes half
an hour to load one of these guns. The sea of Mar
mora is about 180 miles in length, and 60 in greatest
width. On the northeastern shore of this sea, where
the Bosporus or strait of Constantinople enters it, ir
the eity. It was across tbil strait that Darius Hyst
aspes laid a bridge of boats on hit march against tbe
Scythians, about twenty years before his son Xerxes
bridged tbe Dardanelles The length of the bridge is
said to bave been 1100 yards. The length of the
strait between the sea of Marmora and the Black
Sea is aboot 14 miles.

article entitled " Sauntering about Constantinople,"

LHTTJ2E FB0M JAPAN.
Kibe, Japar, 1878.
Data Gasette. Some weeks sinee I told you
about grand old Kiyoto, tbe capital of Japan, it is
said, for 1000 years. I will now refer to its templet.
They are said to be great, and small, 3000 in number.
One writer says 0000 in tbe eity and its vicinity.
But if so, tbe great mass of them are merely little
Shinto shrines, where, however, prayers are said and
alms given. Ignorant as tbe devotees are, tbey teem
to know tbat these should go together. That there
are here many large and costly temples is unques
tionable. And Mr. Davis, who has spent a mouth
this summer Ave or six miles distant on the side of a
noble mountain, says, that in a space of one and a
half miles, by three-quarters of a mile broad, be saw
cue hundred temples, mostly in decay, but some well
preserved and rooted with eopper. All those which
I taw in Kiyoto are Budbist property ; and yet it ia
laid by natives tbat their system is fast declining. It
has been said that the temples of this Empire hare
cost as much as all other buildings ; and, excluding
the houses of the rulers and those buildings erected
since the revolution, it seems rather credible, for tbe
habitatioas of private Japanese are usually small and
On 24th June, 1878. we dined with Mr. and Mrs.
Doane, and in the afternoon she kindly piloted us to
two fine temples in the suburbs, on a hill side, in tbe
middle of a large court and cemetery, well kept, and
enclosed by a strong wall and over-shaded by noble
forest Iress. Graves are usually marked by a granite
pillar, a foot square and from six to eight feet high,
with some inscription on it, and occasionally capped
with a hat tbaped piece of granite. You enter the
court through a broad strong gate, and approach the
temple by a well-paved clean street, about 20 feet
broad and 200 feet long. The building is about 100
feet long and 50 feet long, and must bare oost muoh
better wben the Star arrived. We landed Mr. labor and expense. Tbe whole breadth and some 25

Notable Deatus. Tbe death of Commodore Van
derbllt is reported. He bad been ill for several
months. He was very weallby, and probably
owued more railroads and railroad property than
! any other person in tbe United Slates.
Tbe death of Sir Daniel Cooper, who lately
visited this port going to aud reluming I rom New i
Zealand, Is reported as bsvlng occurred in London, '
Irom heart disease. He held tbe office of Colonial
Commissioner in Loudon for tbe government of .
Mr. Bliss, tbe revival melodist was killed bv ;
I the railroad disaster In Ohio on tbe 29tb of De- :
cember, and bis wife aud children are also reported
among the killed. It ia said that be extricated him
self from tbe ruins and sought to rescue bis wife
and children, who were crushed beneath the iron i
work of tbe car. Failiug iu the attempt, be re
mained by them, preferring to die lo tbe flames
than to escape alone.
Ma. Augus Maceat. It will be In the recollec
tion of onr readers tbat, during November, 1875,
Mr. Angus Mackay, tbe Centennial Comraiasioner
for Queensland, Australia, called at our port en
route to tbe scene ol bis duties, and also to visit
the sugar producing countries oftbe United Stalea,
Weat Iodies, etc. Mr. Mackay is now a passeogcr
per City of New York, on bis return home. Tbe
colony be represents, as our readers are aware, has
been extra auccesslul at tbe Centennial, and Mr.
Mackay has a full budget of practical information
for tile fellow colonists, of this we will profit by
and by. Meantime, we learn from tbe Commis
sioner tbat be found tbe sugar busiueae in a de
pressed sute in botb the United States and West
Indies. The only exception he found in the French
West Indis Islsnds, and there be believes tbat proa
perity is due fully as much to the Central Factory
system of sugar making as to the excellent quality
oftbe soil snd climate of tbe islands for sugar. The
Central Factory, in Mr. Mackay'a opiolon, lathe
best device yet worked out to make the production
of sugar a steady profitable business. We hsve been
promised some fscts on tbis subject, from Mr. M ,
which will be of value to those engaged lo the
NtifieMATic. There baa been laid upon our
editorial table a very interesting little work, neatly
printed by Lippincott Co., entitled " A Vialt to
tbe Cabinet of tbe United Slates Mint, at Phil
adelphia." It contains a large amount of informa
tion which la entertaining to the general reader,
and wbicb must be, we sbonld suppose, of much
value to the numismatist The introductory gives
s brief but piqaaot historical sketch of coin, and
tbe remainder of the book Is devoted to s descrip
tion of tbe Mint and its cabinet, which must be a
most interesting place to visit, and the various
coins, modem r ud ancient, western and oriental,
which are to be seen there. Alao a full account of
many of tbe medals wblch bave been struck st the
Mint, aa well aa of others which came Irom foreign
lands. We find tbe statement in Ibe book that tbe
largest gold piece in tbe world is tbe Chinese ten
ted piece, wbiebjis worth two hundred and tblrty-
fivc dollars, but In the opinion of tbe fair authoress
the moat celebrated coin In the world is tbe " Wi
dows' Mite," wbicb is there on exhibition, and
which is In appearance one of tbe most insignifi
cant. Tbe collection, it appears, contains one Ha
waiian cent, wbicb is noticed in tbe following
paragraph : " Leaving both the eastern and tbe
western world and tbelr coins, there is a single
piece, or small commercial value, which la yet a
"light-bouse in mid-ocean." Tbis is tbe one cent
ol tbe Sandwich Islands, tbe only venture of tbat
kind yet made by the enterprising little kingdom."
Storges' things, snd on tbe 5lh anchored off Mr.
Hands Station, lauded hia supplies, and lumber, and
oil tbe 7tb anchored at Kanau, off Mr. Lugune
Station, iu 6 fathoms water. Good holding ground
10 miles Irom Sturgee Station. Lsl. 7- N., Long.
158- 20' E We received a hearty welcome from all
the Missionaries bere, as we bad from all tbe others.
Tbe arrival of tbe Morning Star is a time ol rejoiciug
in all Ibe Islsnds. We landed Mr. Logan's supplies,
took on board Mr. 8iutges, and two teachers with
their wires, and sailed October 10th lor tbe Mori
lucks. We arrived at Luksnor Sunday the 15th,
und anchored In Its bcHUtilul Lagoon near the
mission Station. Lat. 5- 30' N . Long. 154' E. We
found tbe tescber aud wife well, tbe people im
proved In appearance, and many ready to uulte with
the church. This made Mr. St urges look bappy, and
we were all glad. Tbe Sabbslb school visited the
Star on tbe 17lb, and sung some of Ibeir Sabbath
school hymns, which was very affecting. On the
10th we left this Lagoon fur the larger one where
Obadinia la statioued ; dlatancu 15 miles. Owing
to light wiudsand currents, did not srrive until the
22d. On tbe 21st tbe mate was taken down with
brain lever, caused probably by n long exposure to
tbe sun while on tbe boat. It run about ten daya.
We lay In this Lagoon until Ibe 31st. Mr. S: urges
visited all the Stations, established all his teachers,
took 260 members iuto the different churches, and
left on tbe Slat greatly encouraged.
We arrived back at Ponape November 6th and
anchored at Kenan. We remained bere seven days
taking in wood, yams, etc. Ou the lolb ourpasseu
gcracame on board, Mr. Whitney, wile and eon, and
servant, and Mr. and Mre. Logan and child. We set
Bail at 2 P. M. and passed out of tbe harbor.
Oo the 16tb, we landed Mr. Logan ou Mogil.
Tbe brig Susanua, ol Jaluit, came round the point
soon alter we arrived, and ufter Mr. Logaq did bis
work here, he took paaaage ou tier Deck to ronapc.
Mrs. Logan remained with us, and at 6 p. m. we
left lor Pinglap, and arrived there on the 21at. Here
we laid off and on while Mr. Whitney (with Mrs.
Lot:au as interpreter) did Ibe missionary work.
Lauded some supplies for tbe teachers, and sailed
on tbe evening of same day for Strong's Ialand, and
arrived off tbe harbor of tbla island ou tbe 25tb.
Took Mr. aud Mra. Snow ou board with their
baggage at 7 p.m. in tbe midst of a heavy rain
! squall, and started for Ebon. We made this island
I on tbe evening of tbe 29tb. Landed Mr. and Mrs.
1 Whitney nexl day, aud sailed In tbe evening for
Jaluit. Ou tbe evening of Dec. 1st, we bad a very
i heavy squall from the East, which laeted nearly all
night ; it blew away our lower topsail and foresail.

" By tbelr fruits ye shall know them." As far is
1 have observed sud learued in the past year, I
think the work iu Micronesia is very encouraging,
and considering tbe advsntsges snd disadvantages,
tbe Gilbert Islands should be numbered with tbe
real, although tbe converts in the Caroline LJaud

We arrived at tbis Island on tbe 30th, anchored

very good effect upon tbe people. We landed the

Tbe Turks have had possession of Constantinople
since 1453, four hundred and twenty-three years,
and now it is proposed that the English take pos
session snd make it impregnable, another Gibralter.
Russia also wants the city, and much interest is fel t
for its future destiny, as well as in its past history.
It was anciently called Bysactium, and this name
continued till Constantino made it tbe capital of hit
empire, A. D. 330, when the name was ebanged to
Constantinople, eity of Constantino. lis Turkish
name is Stamboul.
Byxantium was fbunded by a Greek colony, B. C.
658. " Strabo, Pliny and others speak of the abun
dance offish at Byxantium, especially of the Pelsmys
kind, which, coming in shoals from tbe sea of Aaof
and round by the eastern and southern shore of the
Black Sea, entered the Bosporus, whence the barber
of Byzantium was called Chrysoeeras, or " Tbe
Golden Horn," in consequence of the riches. derived
from the fishery. Tbe Byaantines salted the fish, which
was an article of considerable trade, as the northern
coasts of the Black Sea supplied Greece and other
countries of the Mediterranean with grain ; the har
bor of Byiantiom was a place of resort for the vessels
engaged in tbe trade."
The ground on which Constantinople standi it well
suited for the right of a great commercial city, the
connecting link between Europe and Asia. A gentle
sloping promontory, secured by narrow seas, stretches
out in a triangular form towards the Asistic conti
nent, from which its extreme point is separated by
so narrow a strait (the Bosporus) that in a quarter
of an boar a boat can row from one eontinent to the
other. Jnst before the Bosporus enters tbe sea of
Marmora, the classical Propoutit, it makes a deep
elbow, or inlet, on the European shore, flowing be
tween the triangle of Constantinople proper aod its
European suburbs of Galata snd Pars, snd forming
the magnificent port of the " Golden Horn."
The Hellespont, the strait leading from tbe Medi
terranean north-westerly into the tea of Marmora, ii
feet of its length it jpen, though I think there are
gates over-head that are hoisted at the keeper's dis
cretion. This open space is supported by ten or
I twelve pillars, 25 to 30 inches iu diameter and 25 to
o0 feet high four of them on each side of tbe plat
form where images are exhibited. The chief image
; here is a guilded face of Budba, and although he is
usually represented as quite at ease and bappy, he
seems grim end uuoomfortable. It stands on a plat
form three or four feet above the floor of tbe open
spaee, and is adorned on each side and over-bead
with very elaborate engravings, flowers, etc., and tbe
ends and front of tbe platform are adorned with rich
paintings of birds, sod painted screens, said to be
hundreds of years old. There are also, near the
image, a bureau and a few other articles of highly
finished tscquer ware.
Tbe worshippers stand outside of tbe temple, but
facing tbe image; bow and pray, sometimea clap
hands, and then toss their offerings into a box which
stands on the floor above them. The temples seem
to he built for the display of tbe idols and to attract
worshippers. Tbe chief space ia them seems to be
used for store rooms or work shops.
In another temple which we visited, was a gigantic
image with 36 arms, and 16 black image larger
than life stood around it, and on eaoh side two rows
of gilt idols with twenty arms eaeh. On either tide
of tbe temple, running from end to end, were ten
platforms, rising like steps one behind tbe other, on
each side of which 50 images, as large as life, a thou
sand in all, each one on a separate pedestal. They
were so arranged as to stand in rows of five, one be
hind tbe other, and ail visible at one time, each with
its twenty hands. On the hands and beads of all
' these are placed smaller idols to the number of forty
or more, so that tbe number 33,d3d, according to
Japanese estimate, does not appear exaggerated.
Tbo same writer adds : " The beautiful temple
grounds, all over the city, afford delightful publio
parks, always open to tbe people who go in and out
of tbe temples at tbeir pleasure, mumbling their
prayers before some faint or idol, and then throwing
their contributions into the coffers."
I saw one temple court of about two acres, with
pine trees .10 or 40 feet high without a limb and no
under brush, and the ground completely carpeted
with a beautiful cleao green sward and a small pond
of lotus flowers and sacred fisb. which are often found
near the temples. But with all theiridols, parks and
10,000 priests, tbe people are miserable.
Not far from this temple is a beautiful green cir
cular mound aboot 50 or 60 yards in cirouinlerence
and 12 feet high, surmounted with a rough granite
pagods, 5 or 6 feet higb. It is called the mound of
ears. Its legend is, ages ago, tbe Japanese invaded
Cores aod slaughtered many of its inhabitants ; and
tbe custom then wot to bring tbe beads of tbe slain to
their rulers as proof of their powers ; but tbe heads
being to bulky to be transported they brought the
ears. I presume tbey were disposed of in tbis way to
stimulate the martial spirit and to gratify national
Prostitution, which if laid to be licensed in every
eity, is bere bold and unblushing. Tbe inmates of
brothels, decked in gay attire, torn oot in a beoy , and
with flouoting banners parade the molt publio itreets
Let me now give you the views of a Jspanese, as
found in a Japanese newspaper, on temperance. " It
is said wine is tbe best of all medicines. But this is
the language of tipplers used in their own defense.
Instead of wine drinking being for tbe good oftbe
body, it ts tbe direct reverse. By it, dissipated per
sons are led into debauchery and tbe negleot of their
families. If wo inquire we shall End they are men
who hare civilised their mouths ; bat while sack
practices are in vogue civilitstiou cannot advance,
snd wben I think of this my tears fall. When, ages
ago, God created man, He fixed the great relation
ship of husband and wife, but men disregard this, re
duce themselves to the level of beasts by giving
themselves over to lust and debauchery. God pun
ishes them therefore by the infliction of sueh plagues
as lyphilts and like diseases. Those who give them
selves up to wine and woman defend themselves by
saying it is the custom of tbe world. But let them
be never so high in rank or distinguished in learning
I shall still think them only savages. If tbey were
in reality only savages, I might pass by tbeir con
duct without notice ; but it isunexcusable to see high
officers aod learned men who know well what is right
behave in sueh a way." P. J. o.

Cleveland, December 29. An accident occurred
at Ashtabula, Ohio on tbe Lake Shore Railroad,
by which aeveu coaches and all tbe baggage and
express cars were tmrned, and about one ont of
every five persons killed.
The scene of tbe accident la a few rods east ol
the depot. An iron bride spans Ashtabula Creek,
75 feet above the water. On botb sides are high
banks of snow, wbicb has been failiug almost
constantly for tbe past forty-eight hours, and now
a driving storm Is raging, making it very difficult
to get uews from tbe wrecked aud burning train.
Conductor Hewn left Erie for Cleveland ao hour
late, aud neared the bride st Ashtabula about eight
o'clock. Very few particulars can be learued at
It seems the failiug train and bridge smashed
tbe ice iu Ibe creek, and those not killed by Ibe
full or burned fn the care were held down by the
wreck and drowned before tbey could be extrica
ted. Many, too, will be or bave been froxen.
Chicago, December 31. The Tribune'a special
from Ashtabula says: The proportions oftbe Ash
tabula horror are uow approximately known. Day
light, which gave au opportunity to enumerate Ilia
saved, revealed the fact that two out ol every three
passeugers ou the train are lost. Of the one hun
dred and sixty passengers whom tbe conductor
reports aa having beeu ou board, bat filty-nlue eau
be accounted for.
Tbe iron bridge structure was a tingle span of
159 feel, crossed by a double truck, aud waa 70
feel above the water. The descent. Into Ibe valley
on either side is precipitous, aud aa tbe bill slopes
are piled with heavy drifts of snow there was no
Utile difficulty iu reaching tbe wreck after tbe die
aster became knowu. Tbe bridge bad been re
garded aa one of the very best or tbe kind in tbe
country. It bad beeu leated with six locomotives
and trains frequently crossed ou both tracks si
multaneously witboul causing more than a alight
deflection ol tbe structure.
The disaster occurred shortly before eight o'clock.
It was the wildest Winter nlgbt ol tbe year. Tbe
train was moving at a speed of less than ten
miles an hour. Tbe bead-lump threw but a abort,
dim Hash of light In front, bo thick waa Ibe air
with tbe driviug snow. Tbe train crept over tbe
bridge. Tbe leading engine bad reached the solid
grouod beyond, and (Is driver bad just given it
steam, wben something in the under-gearing of Ibe
bridge snapped. For an Instant there was a con
tused cracking of beams aud girders, ending with
a tremendous crash as tbe whole train, all but the
leading engine, broke through tbe frame-work aod
fell in a heap of crushed aud splintered ruius at the
bottom. Notwithstanding the wiud and storm,
the crash was beard by people half a mile away.
For a moment there was silence; then arose the
cries ol the maimed and suffering. Those who
were unhurt hastened to escape from tbe shattered
cars. They crawled nut ol tbe wlndowa Into Ibe
freezing water, waist deep. Men, women and
children, with limbs broken, bruised and pinched
between timbers, and transfixed by jagged splinters,
begged with tbelr last breath for aid tbat no human
power could give. Five minutes after the train
tell a fire broke out iu the cars piled against tbe
abutments at tbe other end. A moment later the
fiames broke from tbe smoking car, and tbe first
coach piled across the other near the middle of Ibe
stream, less than ten minutes after tbe catastrophe
every car In the wreck was on tire, and tbe flames
led by ibe dry varnished work licked up the ruins
as though tbey had been Under. Men, who In tbe
bewilderment of tbe shock sprang out and reached
tbe solid Ice, went back after tbe wives and chil
dren and lound tbem suffocating and russtlng in
the flumes. People residing in tbe neighborhood,
were startled by tbe crash, und lighted to tbe scene
by the conflagration, which made even their prompt
assistance too late. By midnight tbe cremation
was completed. The storm bad subsided, but tbe
wind blew fiercely, aud the cold was even moro
As tue bridge fell tbe driver of the locomotlttvc
In trout guve it a quick head of atcain, which tore
the draw head from its tender and Ibe liberated
engine shot forward aud burled itaelf In tbe enow.
Tbe other locomotive, drawn backward by tbe
falling train, tumbled over tbe pier and fell bottom
upward on the express behind.
January 2 Henry A. White, passenger In the
sleeping car, testified before tbe Coroner's jury to
day that be thought tbo train ran off the track be
fore tbey began to go down. He estimated the
number ol passengers at 300.
Daniel McGuire engineer of the first engine,
beard tbe bridge snap behind bim wben be wss
within two cut-lengths nf the abutments. He says
that his engine had to run up hill to get off tbe
bridge Could give no Information whatever about
the wreck or incidents oftbe fire, although he was
there some lime.
