A POPULATED COFFIN.
Uvron's famous dream of what he
saw under the sea, is more than drought
to life in the account of the reporter of
the New York JIvrtild, who went down
in diver's dress to inspect the cabins,
steerage nnd hatchways of the wrecked
steamer Atlantic. fl he: rending of his
graphic report fairly curdles one's
Mood. What sort of sympathy for suf
fering a man can entertain who is will
ing to gratify it after a manner so un
paralleled,it might he impossible to con
ceive, ilen sailing about in the hold of
a four thousand ton steamer, their flesh
torn, and their limbs separated, with
open mouths and glaring eyes; the hatcli
ways crowded with a struggling mass
of what were once human beings, re
vealing the agonv of that last terrible
effort lor life which a common instinct
inspires; parents in the act of protect
ing their oiispring; husbands nnd wives
fast in the embrace of an ullcction that
mrvives the act of death; strong men
lighting their irresistablc doom with the
energy oi' disj.air; others illustrating
with aii itnpies.ive force the act of per

Lethe pourirg their ceaseless currents

people; it is 11 picture, viewed in the

but nice, to the last day of his exist
ence. Li o igh h:-8 been told of the horrors
of that April morning off the forbidding
coast of Nova Scotia, but this revela
tion brings them up before us in their
dreadful reality. The ship's cabins are
Htill occupied with the company that
went down in them full of life and hope
from the Enirlish shore, but it is a voice
less assembly now. All these hopes
have gone out. All the schemes ot lite
that were cherished up to the hour when
the gallant ship met her fate are fled
forever. No pleasant homes for those
passengers on the distant prairies. No
greeting of friends and kindred on land
ing on their native shore. No more
dreams of plenty and peace in the midst
of domestic love, that were to be
wrought 'out in n little while by faithful
labor. Everything blasted that contain
ed the germ of a new hope for an un
tried future. There are those whose
busy brains and beating henrts enter

No man could stay long to contem
plate such a scene, though invention
gave him as protracted a lease of life
below the water as he could w ish. Hu
man sympathy is an undesirable gift for
one w ho would stay among such sur
roundings unmoved. Very few persons
would care to view the actual scene, even
to report it in its hideous truthfulness
t,r th universal perusal. The interior
of wrecks is not often seen just as it
and described with the minuteness
photography itself; but the description
of this interior is as remarkable as
catastrophe itself was unprecedented.
Hundreds of corpses drifting about with
out will in the vessel which they
yesterday peopled with life, is a sight
not allowed every one to see, nor is
every combination of nerves that could
be trusted to undergo the strain. The

If biiv, they are entitled 10 remain 111
gloomy recesses. The waves dash about
them unchecked, and the winds sing
their requiem among the cordage
among the rocks. No man can tell what
is to be the place where he shall die,
it is sale to sav that not a soul of those
lost bv the Atlantic ever thought they
would meet their end at such an hour

Lost August many of us had the pleas-
ure of hearing Rev. Henry l.ruce Miss
ionary rend a very elaborate and ably
written article, on the subject of "Caste
in India," showing what a fearful engine
of power it was as exercised over that
poor deluded people; what a terrible
sway it held over them iu all their ways
and walks in lite; now it held them un
der its dominion as with hands of steel;
how it fettered and hindered the miss
ion work, and prevented thousands from
embracing Christianity because of the
persecutions that surely follow, and some
times even death itself. All who heard
it doubtless bemoaned the sad condi
tion of those subjected to the arbitrary
rules and tests of caste; and so we might
well do. But as I listened, I thought "is
there not a species of caste even iu Chris
tian America almost as enervating, par
alyzing and destroying in its effects up
on the church and its work, as is the for
mer ? Is there not a spirit and dement
native to the aristocratic, wealthy and
high-boin church members, which in
some of their phases bear a st rong resem
blance to it the spirit manifested by
those of proud, hauglity, impcrious,scorn
f nl and pharasaical bearing, who say by
their every look, act and word, "stand
aside, for we are holier and better than
you; we wish 110 fellowship with you
pieuiaus; vou are not ot our caste our
clique." 'Two years ago what a wail
went up from some of the noble souls in
in our great cities " Our churches are
dying of rei!ctabUity and jroprittyn
What a sad commentary 011 the spiritual
condition of those churches! Pride and
fashion, and ostentatious diplay in dress
and equipage, have made many of these
churches grand exhibition salons of ntile
and J'unf)ion, rather than jilaces for the

the case "of the former, but the Utter has
deluded upon some one else for this
service, and, unfortunately for tho sako
of society, it is rarely he is obliged to
resort to the needle himself. Some
times the patient wife scalds her right
hnnd, or runs a sliver under the nail of
the index finger, of that hand, and it is
then the roan clutches the needle around
the neck, and, forgetting to tie a not in
the thread, commences to put on the
button. It is always in the morning
and from five to twenty minutes after
this he is exticeted to be down street.
He lays the button exactly on the site of
of its predecessor, and" pushes the
needle through one eye, and carefully
draws the thread after leaving about
three inches of it sticking up for lee
way. He says to himself: "Well, if
women don't, have the easiest time I
ever see." Then he comes back the oth
er way and gets the needle through the
cloth easy enough, and lays himself out
to find the eye, but in spite of a great
deal of patient jabbing the needle 'point
persists in bucking against the solid part
of the button, ami finally when he los
es patience, his lingers catch the thread,
and that three inches he has left to hold
the button, slips through the eye nnd in a
twinkling and the button rolls leisurely
across the floor, lb-picks it up with
out a single remark, out of respect for
his children, and makes another attempt
to lasten it. J his time w lien coming
back w ith the needle he keeps both the
thread and the button from slipping bv
covering them with his thumb, and it is
out of regard for that part of him that
he feels around for the eye iu a very
careful and judicious manner, but event
ually losing his philosophy as the
search becomes more and more hoeIess,
he falls to jabbing about in a loose and
savage manner, and it is just then the
needle finds the opening, and comes up
throutrli the button and pan wav
through the thumb with a celerity th

Then belays down thethinirs with a few
familiar quotations, and presses the in

nobis it under the other arm, and final
ly jams it into his mouth, and all the

and earth to witne-s that there has never
been anything like it since the world
was created, and howls, and whistles,
and moans, and sobs. After a while he
calms down, and puis on his pants and

CLIMATE AND SOIL.
The popular ideas regarding Labrador
lire well founded. Regarded as a whole
there is not, perhaps, on the face of the
earth, a more uninviting region as an
abode of civilized man than' Labrador,
del Fuego alone excepted. On
much of it the snow lies from the end of
September till the beginning of June.
Iu winter the coast is inaccessible, f.,r the
most part, being blockaded with ice-fields
drifting from Battm-; Hav; and in spring

be few inducements to visit these savage
bores. The interior appears to be, lor
the most part a vast table-land of most
forbidding aspect. Professor Hind, who
explored it two hundred ami forty feet,
above the ocean at the sources of the
east branch of the Moisic. It is pre-eminently
sterile, and where the country is
not burned, cariboo moss covers the
rocks with stunted spruce, birch, and as-
pens in the Hollows ami deep ravinis.
The whole of the table-land ii stiewed
with nn infinite litimlier of bowlders,
sometimes three and four deep. These
singular erratics are perched on the
summit of every mountain, and hill,
often on the edges of cliffs, and they
vary in size from one foot to twenty feet
The whole of the vast wilderness
is uninhabited by civilized man, with
the exception of a few settlements on
the St. Lawrence ami Atlantic coa-sts,
and some widely-separated posts of the
Hudson's Bay Company. Wandering
tribes of Esquimaux occupy the north
ern coast of Labrador, while nomadic
tribes of Nasqtiace, Wistasini . and
Moctagnais Indians are thinly scattered
over the interior. The exports which
are chiefly through Newfoundland, are
codfish, salmon, and seal, nnd whale oil
and furs. Once the country was rich
in fur bearing animals and cariboo or rein
deer but these are now greatlv reduced
iu numbers. Of the eastern side hardly
anything is known beyond the coast,
which bad been carefully surveyed by
Captain Bayfield. Before his day it was
on this bleak anil dangerous coast that
the great navigator, Capt. Cook, first
displayed those talents as a marine sur
veyor, which gained for him the patron
age of Sir Hugh Pallisc, and drew pul
lic attention to his e.vtarordinary enter
prise. His chart of Newfoundland, La
brador, and the Straits of Belle Isle are,
to this day, a convincing proof of his
fidelity, genius, and discernment.

They are engaged in the capture and
cure of cod, salmon, and herring. The
total values of these fisheries is not less
than a million sterling. Even during
the fishing season the bleak coast is fre
quently swept by storms; and when re
turning, late in "October, fatal disasters,
are frequent among the small fishing
craft. In homeward voyage, laden with
the proceeds of his summer toil, the poor
fishermen is often shipwrecked and lost;
or his ship is dashed to pieces and
barely escapes his life, to find himself
beggar, without any provision for
long winter which is closing in.

SCENERY OF LABRADOR.
Bleak and savage are the shore? of
Labrador, yet the aspects of nature are
often picturesque and grand, and some
times strangely Wautiful. The great
dark cliffs along the coast, beaten ai.d
torn by storms of centuries, rear their
giant forms that have been sci l.itured by
tempests nnd molded bv the hands of
frost giants, and hewn into their present
snapc bv the thundering
blows of the
Atlantic s billows, in tne summer eve
nings it is grand 10 see their great shad
ows falling on the surface of the waves,
as the sun is setting, and the ceaseless
music of ocean is heard as it laves their
jagged sides. But grander still is the
sight when tho w ild Atlantic is lashed
into fury, and, like the onset of an inva
ding host, the waiery battalions charge
up the lofty clitfs with desperate fury,
as if determined to carry the fortress, and
fling their spray over the loftiest sum
mits. Then, what can equal the stern
and awful beauty of the ocean when la
den with the ice-argosies; when the huge
floes are grinding against one another
and dashing each ether to pieces; and
the statelv iceliergs, with their fantastic
shapes, their glittering pinnacles and
dazzling white towers, are sailing slowly
past, carrying iu their bosom fragments
from the Artie mountains to help iu tho
erection of a new continent, where now
the ships are sailing over the submarine
banks of Newfoundland.
Ou leaving the coast, and wending
one's way inland, although there is not
here the granduer of the pine forest or
the flower-clad vale, yet the tapering
dark-green firs have a beauty of their
"own; while mosses of every hue, wild
flower of richest colors, ferns aud grass
es tall aud graceful, diversify the scene.
The lover of the picturesque may revel
iu the sight of naked rocks, of towerii.'g
mountains, wood ami plain. The great
prolific mother clothes these wildernesses
with berry bearing plants of all kinds;
raspberries, hurtleberrics, cramberries,
