? wood to a coal burner Ana lastly, the perfect
manner In which It performs its duties
The peculiar arrangement* of Its flues, keeping

EVENING STAR~
STAND FROM UNDER;
Or, The nritirtiK Ctryie.
The following was told as an aetual fact by
a sailor who solemnly affirmed he knew it to be
so ; whatever else be was, he certainly most
havo been a sailor of genius :
We are on board a slave ship bound to the
c^ast of Africa. I had my misgiving* nbout
the business, and I believe others had them,
too. We hai passed tfce Straits of Uibralter,
and were lying off Barbary. one clear, bright
evening, when it came my turn to Mke ?h"
helm The ship was becalmed, and every
thing around was as silent as the day after the
deluge. The wide monutony of water varied
only by the glancing? of the moon or the crest
of tho waves, made me think the old fables of
Neptune wero true ; and that Amphitrite and
hcrFaiada wro sporting on the surface of
the ocean, with diamonds in their hair. These
fnncies were followed bv the thought of my
wife, my children, and my home; and all
were wildly eu ugh jumbied together in a de
lict us state cf approaching flumber Sud
denly I heard above my head a loud, deep,
terrible voioo call out 44 Stand from Under.
I started to my feet?it was a customary sig
nal when anything was to be thrown from the
shrouds, snd tnechanicnllv I sung out the
usual answer, "Let go!" 'But nothing camo.
I looked up in the shrouds?there was nothing
there I searched the deck, and found that
I was alone! I tried to think it was * dream ;
but that sound, eo deep, so stern, so dread
ful, rung in my ears like the bursting of a
cannon
In the morning, I told the crew what I had
heard They laughed at me ; and were all
<!ey Jong full of their jokoa about44 Dreaming
Tom." One fellow among them was most un
merciful in his raillery lie wf>? a swarthy,
malignant looking Spaniard, whocarried mur
der in his eyo and curses on his tongue ; a
darii g and lordly man who boasted of crimo
as if it gave him pre-ominenco among hi*
fellows lie lacghed longest and loudest at
my ftory. 44 A most uncivil ghost, Tom,"
raid he ; 44 when such chaps come to see me,
I'll make 'cm show themselves; I 11 not be
satisfied without seeing and feeling as well as
hearing.''
Tho sailors all joirod with him ; and I,
ashamed of my alarm, was glad to bo ei eot.
The next night. Dick Burton took the helm.
Dick had nerves like an ox, and sinews like a
whale ; it was little he feared on earth or be
neath it. Tho clock struck one. Dick was
leaning his head on the helm, as he said,
thinking nothing of me or my story, when
that cwful voice again celled out from the
shrouds, " Stand from under " Diok darted
fjrward like an Indian arrow, which they say
goes through And through a buffalo, and wings
on its way as if it had not left death in the
rear. It was an instant or more before h??
found presence of mind to call out44 Let go !"
Again nothing was seen?nothing heard Ten
nights in succession, at one o'clock, tho same
unearthly sound rung through the air. making
our stoutest sailors quail as if a bullet shot
had gone through their brain?
At last we grew pale when it was spokea ofi
and the worst of us never went to sleep with
out saying our prayers For myself, I would
have been chained to the oar all my life, to
have got out of that vessel But there we
were in the vast solitude of the wean; and this
invisible being was with us No one put a
bold face on the matter, but Antonio the Span
iard. lie laughed at our fears, and defied
Satan himself to terrify him However. when I
it came his turn at the helm, he refused to
go, several time= under the pretense of illness
he was excused from a duty, which all on
board dreaded But at last tho captain or
dered Antonio to receive a round uosen of
lashes every night, untii he should consent to
perform his share of the unwelcome office
For awhile this was borne patiently ; but at
length he called out, 44 I may as well one way
as another. Give me over to the ghost!"
Thut night Antonio kept watch on tho deck
Few of tho crew slept ; for expectation and
alarm had stretched our nerves upon the rack
At 1 o'clook the voice called, " Stand from
under !" 44 let go," screamod the Spaniard.?
This was answered by a shriek of laughter, and
such laughter, it ceemed as if the fiend ans
wered each other from pole to pole, and the
bass was howled in hell. Then came a sui
den crash upon the deck, as if our masts and
spars had fallen We all rushed to the spot,
and there was a cold, stiff, gigantic corpse
The Spaniard said it was thrown from the
f-hrouda; and when he looked on it he ground
his teeth like a madman. 411 know him."
exclaimed he, '41 stabbed him within an
hour's fail ot Cuba, and drank his b'ood for
breakfast."
Wo all stood aghast at the monster. Ia fear
ful whi?pere we asked what sh 'ul 1 be done
with tho body Finally we agreed that the
terrible sight must be removed from us, and
hidden in the depths of the sea Four of us
attempted to raise it; but human strength wa =
of no avail ?we might as well have tugged at
Atius. There it lay, stiff, rigid, heavy, and
us immovable as if it had formed part of the
vessel. Tho Spaniard wa= furiou ; 44 let me
lift him," said ne 441 lifted him once and can
do it again I'll tsach him what it is to come
and trouble me lie took the body round the
waist and attempted to raise it Slowly and
heavily the corpse raised it itself up; its ray
less eyes opened ; its r:gid nrm stretched cut
and clasped itsvictim in a olcse death grapple
and rolling over tho sides of the ship. th<y
tottered an instant over the waters?then with
a plunge they sank together. Again thit
laugh?that wild, shrieking laugh?was heard
en the windi The sailors bowod their heads
and put up their hands to shut out the appall
ing sound
I took the Lelin more than onco after ; bci
ne nover again heard in tho shr?ud th'it thun
dering sound, 44 Stand from Under. ''

" There would have oeen less hurry and

it been foreseen that the indefinite term of

beeu a most a pity, for there was a good deal
of scenic interest in it. The race of legisla

few of the spectators would be surprised. To
the outliers it looked very like confusion ?
but perhaps it was more in appearance than
m reality. Tho committees and leaders bav*
the threads in hand, and the Speaker, Mr
Banks, was cool, watchful, and self possessed,
the model of a presiding officer The pubtio
galleries were filled to suffocation, though no
party or " campaign" speeches wore expected
?the time for oratory had passed; it was all
* clear and qrick voting Above all. the ladie?
had gathered in immense force, and their gal
Jory was one vast flutter of fans Conrtder
ing the sta* - of the thermometer and the
working dr- parterre of gentleman the}
l^ ked doTT" ?,n, their presence in such num
bers was something of a nddlo. The rotunda
which divides the House ' from the Senate
wis the grand promenade of the night, and
w -uld have been almost gsy hut for the se
rious business-like look of the men?the ex
pressions seen on 'Change when the funds ate
capricious and quotations fluctuating Many
eagor faces flitted about in the gaslight, ar
rested by nothing of art or nature areund
them ; others took matters inore coolly, smok

than at noon ; while in the foreground gleamed
the statuo of Washington, directly facing tbo

a moment of thoughtless pission the little boy
struck his shter. The littlogirl was provoked,
