4. VSJ? York Nantloal School,
which is maintained by an annual appropria
tion from tho Board of Education. On board
oro now fifty-oight young tars, who have
rnade ono trip across tho " briny." When
eho casts off her moorings next spring thoro
will bo an addition of thirty or forty land
lubbers and dock sailors, who will lead a
dreary life alongside tho, old salts who have
sailed ono cruise.
The St. Mary's is an old sloop of war pro.
S'dcdby tho Government, and has been in
is service about fifteen years. Sho is a
nautical school wheroin young America who
has read tho fascinating sea stories of Oliver
Optio or Capt. Marryat may speedily got
his thirst for salt water and deslro for a sea
life appeased, and moro, with littlocost and
no worrimont to parents.
Tho Government has provided a Naval
Academy at Annapolis, at which youths aro
trained for tho naval Borvico, buthore appli
cants for admission must havo a "pull " with
some Congressman or bo bright enough to
win a competitive examination. Tho St.
Mary's is intended for fitting boys for the
merchant service, and any youngster who is
over fifteen and not yet twenty, and is morally
and physically sound, who can obtain tho
consent of his parents or guardian and bring
on board two pairs of boots, threo towols,
three pairs of heavy socks, threo suits of
heavy underclothing and three handkor
, chiefs, may, by depositing $35 with Capt.
Crowninshleld, the commander of tho ship,
join tho school and in two years bo graduated
a full-fledged sailor beforo the mast. If ho
is particularly bright tho graduate may then
bo ablo to ship as third mato on a merchant
On fulfilling all tbo preliminary require
ments the youngster will bo given a natty
dress suit of blue, consisting of tho open,
loose-throatod shirt, wide-bottomod trousers
and fiat, visorless cap so much coveted by
tho would-bo sea.farln' man. This he may
wear on Saturdays and Sundays, if ho is not
"quarantined " for " skylarking," failure in
his lessons, insubordination, disrespect to
his superiors or other error. Thus attired
he may, if in port, bowl about tho streets,
parade himself before admiring young
friends and family, and stand with feet wide
apart at his mother's hearth. His liberty in
port may extend from Saturday morning at 9
o'clock till Monday at the same hour.
Besides this dress suit, he will get two suits
of white canvas, blankets for his hammock
and other necessaries of a sailor.
The $35 deposit pays for his keop and for
tuition for two years in reading, writing,
arithmetic grammar, geography, history and
navigation, practical and theoretical.
The lads are spared no detail of tho life
whioh they propose to fit for. Thero aro
seven sailors on tho schoolship, cooks, an
engineer and other men to the number of
twenty .boBidos the tutors and offlcors.but tho
boys themselves perform much of the work
of handling tho ship, and at noon of each
daythoy ,rgo over the masthead," which
moans that thoy go through tho work of furl
ing and reefing and staying the sails and per
forming unheard-of other things with the
" starboard- foretopgallant - studding - sail -boom-tricing-line-blook-strap
thimble - seiz

plalnable to a landsman. Each lad has his
watch, his mess and his class In tho school.

An "ordinary soaman," graduated last
tnonth, said he bad learned all about what
was "for'a'd on thosta'b'd side, aft on the
port side " and what was " inBlde on the out-
' side." He knew how to pass a nipper, or
clap on a jigger; how to choke a luff, or
Eoake the backstays; fleet a purohaso, or
1 crown a crotch rope : moko a gourmet or an
artificial eye ; make a Spanish fox. or a Turk's
head ; what was meant by a witho, a gam-
noning. a cat's paw, a sheop's shank, an
Irish splice, the whiskers, the jumpers and a
ringtail : whioh were the moon sails, star
tazers, heaven disturbers and other Bolls:
how to hitch, bend, clinch and caokle.
j In fact he knew every inch of his ship, and
rattled off at a steam-engine pace about
' everything in the ship's economy. The boys
peeled the " spuds " themselves and had
' salthorso " and " duff " till they sighed,
and some of them cried for the good old fare
they had had at home. The big beams high
tip and crosswise of tho masts were the " cro.
i Jocks," oross-jacks wouldn't be nautical;
etuddingsail was altogether too dignified and
41 stuns'Il did instead.
" We had school in the little house on deck
from 0 till 4 o'olook five days in tho week,
with two hours out at noon for mess, mast
head and play." said tho graduate. " Wo

that he loved her. She knew that whenever
he asked her to be his wife she would give

not. But It was not for hor to say bo. Her
creed as to woman's conduct, what Bho might
ay and what she might do, was a very strict
one. She would have died rather than have
' wittingly given him one love glance beforo he
h&d asserted himself her lover ; and now that

The reporter askod about the faro, and tho
old salt replied 1 " If it wasn't for tho grub,
I'd llko to go on another cruiso. But wo get
salt-horso all tho tlmo, tho rlco is cooked as
as hard as a briok; the bread is hard tack of
of the hardest kind; tho plum duff is fit for
pavements, and the butter Is strong enough
to walk off tho table."
Plum duff, tho reporter learned, Is a pasto
mado of flour, water and dried apples, and is
boiled. On close questioning, tho graduate
soldi "We kicked 011 the duff, oud they
gavo us beans instead, and tho bcuns Wcro
always good. Our duff bags were called in.
Somo of the salt beef was very bad. It
smelt bad, and wo wont to Lieut. Fields, who
is in ohargo of us, and ho examined lt, and
seven barrels of the stuff wero heaved over

wo loft New York, but tho chances In climato

Lieut. Wells Fields said, when this conver
sation was related to him: "That is just it.
Those boys aro anxious to bocomo sailors.
Wo promiso to teach them all thoro is about
tho llfo they think they want to follow.
Therefore wo feed them exaotly as sailors
aro fed, only, porhaps. a little better. Of
oourso wo can keop no ico on board and tho
butter loses its oharaoter. Tho rations aro
the best to be had in ship stores. Salt horso
and rice threo times n week : coffee onoe each
day 1 salt meat, hash, hominy and oatmeal
alternately 1 pea soup, bean soup, Irish stows
of canned fresh moats and other changes are
mado as often as practicable We officers eat
tho somo rations. If wo fod them better and
thoy fared better in other ways, afterwards,
when they had shipped on a merchantman,
thoy would complain justly that wo had
cruollv misled them."
" Fact is," said the rocont graduate, "most
of the boys are oured of their hankering for
the sea after a cruise or two. Out of twenty
six of my class, only six of us aro going to
follow tho sea. Then thero aro always lots
of tho boj'B who quit after the first cruiso
on tho sohool-ehip. You boo, thoy can go at
any time if they obtain the consent of their
folks, and if they can't, thoy can run away
from tbo ship. It iBn't llko tho naval acade
my. Nobody over tries to find tho runaways.
They go off Saturday or Sunday and novor
como back. That's tho end of it. If thoy
don't want to stop thoy can Bay thoy won't,
and tho captain will let them go. All they
have to do is to leave their sailor rig."
Curing play hours tho lads lounge about
the gundock, whoro rest tho cannon which
havo been silent and only useful for object
teaching for fifteen years, and smoke cigar

Kntorprue and vicinity was set all agog on
Thursday morning by tho announcement that a
long expected wedding, whioh wag to havo
occurred at Suulsrllle, u few miles east of this
place, at 0. 80 a. u. , had been declared off by the
betrothed lady. Mr. Harry lthoades, formerly of
this place, lato of Tllusvllle, and Miss Charlotte
Sauls, of Saulsvlllc, were tho parlies who Intended
that thulr lives should lio a "link of sweolncis
long drawn out," but tho fates decreed otherwise.
All unturo smiled on this auspicious morning, and
that any roan, when his llfo whs to be gladdened,
should fall to appear on tlmo aud claim tho lady
whom ho luul wooed aud won with tho ardor that
belongs to youth, Is beyond tho comprehension uf
all except probably himself.
At a. bo a. M. the bright suntrose upon the assem

the expectant lady, who was to take upon herself
tho vows "till death do us part," awaited In her
boudoir the coming of her lioraoo. 'I ho minutes
fled and still ho came not, aud tho wedding guests
possessed themselves of that uneasiness which Is
the forerunuer of disappointment, while tho lovo
of tho fair lady turned to auger. At last tho one
who wai to have cast her lot with a man of unfaith
ful promises, appeared npon tho scene, and with a
sad, pale face, in which tho lineaments of deter
mination were plainly marked, announced to tho
guests that thero would be no wedding. The min
ister departed, whether with or without hit fee It
matters not, and many guoats wended their way
homeward discussing Inexorable fate with, forvor j
sonic, however, stayed to sorrow with the would
be bride, and wcro rewarded by seeing tho man of
her choice coming to tbo houto at a gallop, threo
hours behind time.
No oxcuses, no sighs, no persuasions, no looks
of lovo could change thi decision ot the outraged
