A gea nMoaeter Sixty-flvr Pest Long and Twenty in Diameter. i~ Y. . erald.) From tnm to itreen acres of people took po w session of the plersareund the foot of Stanton In street yesterday morning, and by 8 o'clockt in a the afternoon moot of the business In that neighborhood was suspended. The cause of the exoitement was the arrival of a whale Pl siaty-flve feet long and from Slteen to twenty a -eet in diameter. In The whale was caught in Cape Cod Bay on tt Thuray last by a party of fishermen, led r Capt. Lavner, an old whaler. When fr ltat sighted there were two of themr and m their spouting was the signal for the holiet. In. of the barrels upon the signal poles for miles along the cape, to give notice to the fishermen that fleh were In sight. Of the numerous crews that started in pursuit, La. vanler and his men were the first to put an A Iron into the monster, and according to whaling usage, thus acquired a valid titie to the fish. The pursuers used what is known as the bom b-lance, an instrument In the shank of which is placed a fulminating powder whlch explodes after the weapon enters the blubber. -Two ts were made with ththis in strument and the marks of the wounds that resulted are plainly visible. It is said that the death strug glese of the monster were terrific, the water being dyed with blood and beaten into t foam by the lashings of its ponderous tail the tl noise of which could be heard at iPervtnoe town, nearly two miles distant. The entrails were removed and water-tight barrels put in to gige the body greater buoyancy. Then it was towed to New Yorkl The head is nearly T twenty feet In length, or about one-third the total length, and the mouth measured fifteen feetfrom Jaw to jaw and eight feet In width large enough to admit a ship's long boat, t rew and d. The b tapers from the head and ends in a tawhoe flke extend horizontally. The girth of the great i lish at its largest point, justback of the head, ir forty feet. A man who has never seen a whale can r have lttle idea of Its helplessness on land. It is as awkward as a locomotive in a mill pond, The back of the Stanton street whale shone like polisahed ebony. Its sides were llghter, , while its immense bely was like Egyptian ivory, with massive wrinkles below the lws, running bck at least twenty feet. The mouth wned like the vault of a rvished savings , and the slptured l embodied the outlines of th fluaes on a White tar propeli ler. The flesh was as hardha vulcanized rub ber, and great livid spots on the sides showed where wounds had brought blood to the sur fae. The Captain exp1ined to the visitors that the whale was no so arge as before , they cut tj ope and removed the contents of his internal revenue department. "We foundthn bushels of herrings in him," sald the Captain, "bIt boots, no 1 watehes acrt e' wnoke' tickets." The 1 eyes are smal and placed far back in the head so as to leave room for the whale 's counlenance. A few hairs sprout from heI nose, like the chin whiskers on a OlChina man. If he had fur like a seal the market would be ruined. Whales breathe through the tope of their heads, and the water they spout out prevents friction; consequently they never snore when sleeping. If they did thunder would be at a discount. The tall is forked flexible and formidable, and with It the whale Is able to prevent shark i and flies from disturbing the slumber of his young. Whalea never slaugh, even when In school. The stomach is bulkheaded into from three to six water-tight compart ments, so that he does not sink when absent-minded and sailors and fish do not get mixed when swallowed. As a rule Their teeth are scarce, but they carry $500 worth of whalebone In their mouths. These bones terminate in a kind of scrub blng-brush fringe, which strains food, and in foggy weather prevents whales from swallowing Sharks and steamboats aed other things that might derange their liver and spoilt lquality of their oil.
