What can it mean? Is It aught to htm
That the nights are long and the days are dim?
Can he be touched by the grief I bear,
Which saddens the heart and whitens the hair?
About hfc throne are eternal calms,
And the strong glad music of happy psalms,
And buss unruffled by any strife;
Bow can he care for my little life?
And yet I want him to care for me
While 1 live in this world where sorrows-be!
When the lights die down from the path I take.
When strength is feeble and friends forsake.
When love and music tbat once did bless
Have left me to silence and loneliness,
And my life song changes to sobbing prayers,
Thau my heart cries out for a God who cares
When shadows hang over the whole day long,
And my spirit is bowed with shame aud wrong,
When I am not good, and the deeper shade
Of conscious sin makes my heart afraid.
And this busy world has too much to do
To stay in Us course to help me through,
And I long for a Saviour—can it be
That the God of the universe cares for me?
O wonderful story of deathless love!
Bach child is dear to that heart above.
Be fights for me when I cannot fight,
Be comforts me in the gloom of night.
He lifts the burden, for he is strong;
He stills the sigh and awakes the song;
The sorrow that bows me down he bears.
And loves and pardons because be cares!
Let all who are sad take heart again,
We are net alone in our hours of pain;
Our Father stoops from his throne above,
To soothe and quiet us with his love;
He leaves us not when the storm is high.
And we have safety, for he is nigh;
Can it be trouble, which ho doth share?
Oh I rest in peace, for the Lord will care.
—SomerviUe Journal.
In the month of March, 1842, I took
tssage at Marseilles on board the mer-
chant ship Good Hope. My own ship
was at Smyrna, and thither the mer
chantman was to carry me, she being
bound there after part of a cargo of
fruit. The captain of the Good Hope
was named John Napton, and though he
was a good and careful navigator he had
one striking fault. He was very quick
tempered and sometimes quite vindic
tive. But for all this, Ms men liked
him, for he never failed to grant them
all the reasonable privileges in his power.
The first mate's name was Sawyer, a
true sailor and an excellent man.
We had a smooth run until we had
passed the southern capes of Greece and
entered the archipelago, bnt here we had
signs of bad weather. Capt. Napton had
never been in these waters before and
did not feel quite safe to trust himself
among the lonian isles in a long storm,
and we had reason to believe that snch
a storm was coming. To be sure, the
chart was explicit, but then those are
wild tracks to travel in stormy nights.
In pleasant weather the task is but slight,
but it was very likely to be different
Capt, Napton asked my advice. I told
him there were plenty of experienced
pilots at Milo, and that in all probability
one of them could be hired to go to
Smyrna and back for a mere trifle. As
for the archipelago, though I had passed
through it several times, I knew nothing
about navigating it. The captain con
ferred with his officers, and it was soon
arranged that the ship should stop at
Milo and take in a pilot. On the next
morning Milo was in sight on the lar
board bow, and having run in to the
westward of the Pigeons we hove to off
the coast and made a signal. In less
than half an hour we were boarded by
half a dozen rough looking fellows, ev
ery one of whom professed to know all
about navigating the archipelago.
Among the number was an oldish man
who gave his name as Marco Midas. He
followed fishing for a livelihood, bnt his
statements with regard to his qualifica
tions as a pilot were by far the most sat
isfactory of the lot. He offered to go to
Smyrna and back with us for $25, and
after some further consultation ho was
Near noon we filled away. There was
bat little wind, not more than enough
to run off two or three knots, and even
that was from the northward and east
ward and as near dead ahead as pos
sible, so the pilot concluded to make a
"long leg" upon the starboard tack and
pass to the leeward of Siphanto. It was
4 o'clock in the afternoon when the ship
was again put about, it being intended
to make a run to the eastward between
Siphanto and Serpho. The breeze had
freshened a little and the reel now ran
off four knots. The northern point of
Siphanto bore about five points on the
lee bow, about ten miles distant.
"I'm afraid we shall have to tack
again," said the pilot, looking anxiously
en the point of land under the lee bow.
"We can certainly clear that cape on
this tack," returned the captain.
"But I'm afraid the ship won't hold
up to her course," resumed the pilot.
"She must certainly hold up to east by
north to do it, for she makes consider
able leeway."
"Oh, I'll warrant her to do that," said
the captain very confidently, and with
the air of a man who does not like to
hare his ship thought incapable of doing
the right thing.
So the pilot, feeling assured that thus
far all would be right, went below to get
his supper. He had been gone perhaps
half an hour, when there was a sudden
shock, and in a moment more the ship
stood still. Marco Midas hastened upon
deck, and was just in time to meet the
captain at the companion way.
"What does this mean?" cried Napton
in an angry tone.
The old pilot gazed for a moment upon
the shore, which was yet some five miles
distance, and then he calmly said:
"It'syour own fault, captain."
"My fault, yon lying lubber?"
"Certainly it ia," calmly returned the
"Take that, then!" and in the heat of
his passion the captain struck the old
man a blow that sent him staggering
half way across the deck.
Without waiting to see the effects of
his hasty outburst, Napton sprang to the
rail and ordered all the yards to be
squared. The ship had struck upon a
hard sandbar, but, as she was not going
very fast at the time, and as the bar ap
peared to be somewhat abrupt, sho was
easily got off, and as soon as she had
hacked clear of the danger, she was put
upon the starboard tack, and stood off
to the northward.
The pilot had turned very pale, and
though his frame shook with agitation,
yet he made no movement toward the
captain. We all knew that he was not
to blame, for the ship had not been kept
upon the course which the captain had
promised, but the helmsman testified
tk«t part of tiie time her head had been
as far out of the way as east-half -south.
instead of east by north, and upon look
ing at the chart we found that we most
have struck on the extreme northern
point of the bar. Yet Capt. Napton
could not be made to see his error nor
would he abate one whit of his wrath.
He sent the old pilot below and told
him not to show his face on deck again.
Midas obeyed without a word, though
we could see that his hands were clinch
ed nervously together and could also
hear the low grating of his teeth.
Tho captain studied over his chart for
some time, and at leugth made up his
mind that he would p;:ss between the
two Serphes, and then run up through
the strait of Silota. Th i wind hauled a
little to the southward and blow fresher.
At dark the little island of Knlipoli wsa
upon the larboard beam, but iv half an
honr afterward the wind died away to a
dead calm. This state of things lasted
for about half an hour longer, and then
the stars began to disappear from the
southern heavens and the atmosphere
began to grow dull and oppressive.
"I smell a blow," said the mate, walk
ing aft to where the captain aud myself
"I hope it may not be such a one as
we had in the«Egiua gvtlf a year ago,"
said I, shuddering as my mind ran back
to the gale I rode out in the old sloop-of-
War Fairfield at that time.
"This is a hard place for storms,'' said
the captain half interrogatively, ;uid at
the same time, as I thought, exhibiting
a little trepidation.
"Yon had better believe it," said I.
"Hadn't we bett'*- call the pilot?" sug
gested the mate.
"No!" thundered Napton.
Ere long the heavens were black as
ink, save a little streak in the south,
where it seemed as if a dull firo were
moldering and dying. It was so dark
that we could hardly distinguish the out
lines of a man half the length of the
ship. All haste was made to get the sail
off, and the ship was soon left under a
close reefed maintopsail, fore storm
staysail and storm mizzen. Hardly had
this been done when we heard a low,
rumbling sound from the southward,
accompanied at short intervals by a sort
of hissing, screeching noise.
In a few moments the gale burst upon
ns. It came at first iv low puffs and
spits of spray, and then the full armed
monster leaped upon us. For a while
the captain let the ship dash ou before it.
He knew exactly where he was when ho
started, but ho dared not run too long,
and at length he brought the ship to on
the larboard tack, with her head nearly
west. At 10 o'clock the sea ran so high
that the staysail and mizzen became of
no use, and they were taken in, and the
ship now lay to under nothing but the
close reefed maintopsail. The ■wind
howled through the rigging with fright
ful power and the sea broke over tbe
ship in drenching floods. The hatches
were battened down fore and aft and
life lines rove.
At midnight the gale seemed to have
increased, and the ship was surrounded
by rustling mountains of white crested
seas. The crew were all upon deck, and
they held on upon the life lines without
speaking. Sometimes the captain moved
about the deck, and when he stood by
the binnacle I could see that ho was pale
and excited. For three hours the ship
had now been lying to, and it was evi
dent that she must have made consider
able leeway. Beneath the fearful power
of the driving gale she must have swept
swiftly off —but how swiftly none could
tell. There was no use in heaving the
log, for the seas would "bring it home."
At length—it was near 3 o'clock —the
sea had risen to such a height that it
threatened every moment to engulf the
ship in its deep cold grave, bnt yet the
strained and groaning craft stood nobly
np. But could she stand so much
longer? The men could see the face of
the captain as the rays of the binnacle
light fell upon it, and they must have
noticed how pale it was. I will not at
tempt to describe my own feelings. I
only remember that I thought of my
home in a far distant land, and that I
wondered if I should ever see it again—
if ever again I should hear the voices of
those who had loved me in childhood.
The mate left the spot where he had
been standing and went to the wheel.
"We can't stand this much longer,"
said he to the captain.
But the captain made no reply, and
soon the mate spoke again.
"Is it best to trust our fate and put
her before the wind? We shall certainly
go down if we keep on in this way."
"No, no," gasped the captain, seeming
to force his words out; "to put her be
fore it would be certain death, for we
are locked in to leeward by a snug chain
of islands. The topsail yet holds. We
may stand it till daylight."
"I am afraid not."
"Then we must pray—that's all."
It must have been some kind power
that held our ship up through that long
night, for the water mountains broke
their fury upon her, and the mad wind
bent her down till she almost groaned
with physical pain.
At length the first faint streak of the
coming dawn appeared in the east, and
yet the gale was unabated. The captain
was just upon the point of leaving his
stand by the wheel when there came a
noise that spoke louder than the tempest.
It was a rumbling, roaring, crashing
noise that came to ns like the knell of
death. All knew in a moment what it
was. Our ship was upon a lee shore!
The morning came, and it found us with
blanched cheeks and trembling limbs,
and it found some, too, upon their knees
in prayer. What a scene burst upon us!
Bight under our lee and not more than
fivo miles distant was a rugged, rock
bound coast.
What power should save ns now? To
wear ship would be of no use, and to
tack was impossible unless we could
make and carry sail enough to stand off.
The captain staggered to the weather
mizzen rigging and passed the order for
loosing the foretopsail. The yard was
pointed to tho wind, and the lee sheet
was hauled safely home, but on the mo
ment that the weather sheet was started
the sail split and iv a few moments more
it was in ribbons!
"We are gone!" uttered the mate.
And so it seemed! The men huddled
aft, bnt not one of them knew what to
do for safety. The ship would certainly
feel none of her lower sails while on the
wind, and the captain knew that the
mizzen topsail wonld be of no use with
out the fore. And every moment, too,
the ship threatened to fall off into the
trough of the sea.
"Where are we?" asked the mate.
But the captain could not tell.
"Wo must call tho pilot."
Napton looked up into the face of his
mate, but this time he made no objec
tions, and the pilot was accordingly sent
for. The old man came up, and for a
while he gazed upon tbe surf bathed
coast in silence. There was a bitter
smile upon his lips, and his eyes sparkled
with a strange light. He at length asked
for a glass, and the mate obtained one,
and having adjusted the foens he hand
ed it to him.
"What coast is that?" asked Mr. Saw
yer after the pilot had lowered the glass.
"Andros," replied the old man.
"And there is no salvation for ns
now!" the mate gasped.
"I can save the ship," calmly said
Marco Midas without a change in his
"You! —save us!" gasped the captain,
starting up.
"But how?"
"Never mind. I can save your ship
and your lives!" The old man spoke
calmly, but yet loud enough to be heard
above the roar of tho tempest.
"Then do it—do it, and you shall be
"Stop, sir! For a thing of your own
doing you insulted me. You struck me!
Had you been on shore yon should not
have lived: but I can forget aud forgive
it now. Go down on your knees, ac
knowledge your error and you are safe."
The captain hesitated. There was
something in the old man's manner that
told of truth, but the prond man was
not yet bold enough to confess his fault.
Nearer anil nearer surged the ship to
ward the fearful rocks, and louder and
louder came the roar of the convulsed
"It will soon be too late!" spoke the
"In heaven's name," gasped the mate,
"stave us! Capt. Napton, yon did him
The stout captain cajt one more look
upon the fatal coast, then he ran his eye
over the mad sea, and then he sank
down upon his knees.
"I did you wrong—l freely own it.
Forgive me—and save us."
"Then I am captain now," said the
pilot, with a proud look and sparkling
"Then man the main braces and lay
the yards square—stop, sir, I know what
lam doing. Put up your holm and let
her go off before it. Stand by now to
set the foresail."
As soon as tho ship was got before the
gale she rodo easier, and ere many min
utes she was dashing down toward the
coast at a dreadful rate. The sea fol
lowed her rather closely until the fore
sail was set, and then she leaped over
the waves like a deer before a pack of
hounds. The old pilot now took his
stand by the wheel, and with a steady
eye he watched the dubious way he was
At length we saw an indentation in
the coast lhat looked like a bay, and
toward this the ship was leaping.
Nearer and nearer we came, and at
length the spray from the rocks actually
dashed upon our deck.
"Starboard braces!" spoke the pilot in
quick, clear tones, aud the mate passed
the order. "Brace up! Starboard your
helm! Steady—so! Belay!"
Like a frightened beast tho ship
dashed into tho boiling surge, and as
she obeyed her helm and came up to her
new course we saw, through a narrow
strait, the open sea beyond. We were
between the islands of Andros and Tinos.
In half an hour more we were in the
open sea. Capt. Napton gave his hand
to the Milo pilot, and again asked him
to forget what had passed, and I know
the old man was satisfied witb his noble
revenge.—Sylvanus Cobb, Jr., in Yankee

Sing Sins Prison at Night.
As one rushes by Sing Sing in a Cen
tral Hudson train a glance can be had of
the main prison building. At night
rows of lights can be seen, light* that
illumine the long galleries upon which
are the cells in which the convicts sleep,
and the thought at once arises that the
big building is alive with moving figures,
keepers with loaded rifles guarding each
gallery, on the alert for any outbreak.
After 9 o'clock at night not a sound is
heard. The "all right" bell is sounded
at S:2O every night, the day keepers are
replaced by a few night men, the con
victs are locked in their cell", iron en
trance doors take the place of the wood
en ones during the day, and the prison
is closed for the night. Even to the
warden"s residence, where dinner is
served at 6, the influence of the quiet of
the prison extends, and about 0 o'clock
every one is asleep or apparently so.
With 1,539 people In that vast inclosure
not a sound is heard except the tread of
tho night guards or the plashing of the
river against tho bulkheads.—New York
