Chronicle : How do the poor shivering, freezing, snow-bound souls down in Trumbull and adjoining counties get along, anyhow ? I sup pose if I were to tell them that to-day we were sitting with outside doors open, no fire, and then rather too warm, and the mercury 62 on the north side of the house and 74 on the south side, and that we had not one inch of snow on the ground at one time all this winter, they would cry out with one accord, " that's too thi a" yet, nevertheless, it Is true. There is sufficient snow at Omaha for sleigh ing, but we have seen a few flakes on ly, aud people make no calculations for any. : There is not a sled or sleigh in this county ; but the people living In the east are alow to believe facts, when presented, concerning Nebras ka. Now, if some persons who " sigh for the leeks and garlics of Egypt," and who are so home sick that they never see, with impartial eyes, things as they are, write, which they often do, all sortd of impossible stuff, then they can believe without once looking at tbe inconsistency of the story. When we were discussing the ques' tion of going west, we found many friends who tried to dissuade us, al legit: g as reasons, that we would cer tainly freeze in this prairie country, for " Tom, Dick aud Harry " had all written home that more than fifty of their neighbors had frozen to death. That occasionally some careless per sons get frost-biiteu, we will notdt ny, for tbe temptation to travel when the sun is shining out in all his splendor, and everything in nature looks like a summer day. is very great, and people sometimes thoughtlessly start out to travel twenty or thirty miles, leaving their wrappings at home, and the weather changes to severe cold and no houses near, when the party must suf fer for being no foolhardy. But if the same caution and foresight were exer cised here in Nebraska as in the East, no more casualties resulting from cold would be manifest here than there. We bave now been in this State long enough to have seen its worst phases, and feel like reiterating what we have often said that we never bave seen so fair a countiy in a state of nature, or a country where the poor man could so soon acquire a home surrounded by all tbe comforts of an old settled coun tiy. And here, too, the man of mod erate means can find a place where he can quadruple bis capital in five years' time ; and for men of capital there are openings where fortunes can be made in a few years, that would astonish his own expectations. Let some man come to this town, where he can get water powers for the asking, and erect a starch factory, and my word for it be would coin money. 1 know of no factory of that kind west of the State of New York, aud here is all the great west for a market, with corn and potatoes " cheap as dirt" An opinion has pretty generally pre vailed that the-lands in Nebraska south of the Platte were altogether preferable to those lying north ; but of late people have got to looking fur ther, and their pains have resulted in their finding out that the best half of our State, both in soil and water is that portion lying north of the Platte. Water is much easier obtained, and is of much better quality. This opinion, in a great measure, has been created by the wonderful amount of " puffing and blowing " done by the B. A M River R. li. Co. They have induced citizens to buy much of their land, at prices ranging from six to fifteen dol lars per acre; when, in fact, better land could be bought of the U. P. R R. Co. at from three to six dollars per acre, and upon easier terms. Now that our portion of the State beginning to be appreciated, the tide of emigration is setting in this direction, and ere long the most avail able lands will be taken up. Had the U. P. R. R. Co. used printer's ink in such profusion, and kept a live corps of traveling agents in the field, their lands would long since have been sold or at least a much larger portion. Towns are springing up ail along the line of the U. P. R. R., and the set tiers are or the right sort. Then again, friends, I say, come west.

It will take away the craving for tobacco quicker than anything else, and is wholly un otijectiouaole. A pine stick is the bett of anything to chew, but the objec tion to that and to anything that is chewed, is that it over exercises and weakens the salivary glands. In quitting the use of tobacco. Quit at ouce, and do not attempt to quit off grauuaiiy. Teetotalers will regret to learn that French chemist has demonstrated the practicability of making alcohol from saw-dust, thecelloluse of which will yield about twenty four per cent of strong spirit, having "an excellent tast." A litteral significance is thus given to the popular metaphor of "lemonade with a stick in it." THE CREDIT MOBILIER INVESTIGATION. UATI0X. Examination of Gen. Garfield. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14. In the Credit Mobilier Committee to-day, Chairman Poland decided that tbe records of the War Department, asked for by Mr. Brooks, to show the character of McComb. were foreign to the subject under invalidation. Neilson, Brooks' son-in-law, testi fied that he borrowed S5.000 of Dillon after six months' acquaintance and without any previous transactions, giving Dillon Union Pacific stock as security. He was told by Brooks tbat be wan entitled to fifty additional shares of the Credit Mobi'ier. Hon. James A. Ga field testified : The first I ever heard of the Credit Mobilier was some time in 1800 or 1867, I ran not fix the date, when George Francis Train called on me and said be was organizing a company to be known as the Credit Mobilier of America, to be formed on tbe model of the Credit Mubilier of France ; that the object of the company was to pur chase lands and build houses afoug the line oi the Pacific railroad, at -points when; cities and villages were likely to spring up; that he had no doubt that money tuus invested would double or treble itself each year ; thAt the subscriptions were limited to$l, 000 etch, and be wished me to sub scribe. He showed me a long list of subcribers, among them Oakes Ames, to whom be referred me for further information concerning the enter prise. .; I answered that I had not money to spare, and If I had, I would not subscribe without knowing more about the proposed organization. He then left me, saying he would hold a place open for me, and hoped I would yet conclude to subscribe. The fame dav I asked A met what he thought of the enterprise. He expressed the opinion that the investment would be safe and profitable. I heard nothing further on the subject for a year or more, and it was almost forgotten, when sometime, I should say, during the long session of 1SG8, Ames spoke of it aiiain. He said the company had organized, was doing well, and he thought would soon pay large divi dends. He said some of the stock had ben left, or was to be left, ia his bauds for sale, and I could take the amount which Train had off red me by paying one thousand dollars and accrued interest. He said if I was not able to pay for it then, he would bold it for me until I could pay, or until some of tbe dividends were payable. I told him 1 would consider the mat ter, but would not agree to take any stock until l Knew from an examina tion of the cnarter aDd conditions of subscription the extent to which should become pecuniarily liable. He said fie was not sure, but thought a stockholder would be liable only for tbe par value of his stock ; that he haa not the stocK and papers with h i, but would nave them after i while. From tbe case as presented. I nrob ably should have taken stock if 1 had been satisfied iu regard to the extent of the pecuniary liability. Thus the matter rested for some time, I think, until the following year. During that time l understood mere were uivi deride due, .amounting to nearly three time the par value of tbe stock, but in the meantime I had heard that the company was involved in some con troversy with tbei'acinc railroad, and that Ames right to sell the etock was denied. When I next saw Ames, told him I had concluded not to take t he stock. Then the matter ended, so far as 1 was concerned, and 1 bad no further knowledge of the company's operations until the subject began to be discussed in the newspapers last lull Nothing was ever said to me by Train or Ames to indicate or imply that tbe Credit Mobilier was or could be in any way connected with the legislation of Congress for the Pacific railroad, or lor any other pt rpose, Ames never gave nor offered to ma any stock or other valuable thing as a gilt. I once assed and obtained from him, and afterwards repaid him. loan of three hundred dollars. That amount is the only vuluable thing J ever received from or delivered to him I never owned, received, or agreed to receive any stock of the Credit Mo bilier or of the Union Pacific railroad, nor any divideud or promts arising from either oi them. HYGIENE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. An Investigation by the State Medical Society-Facts Already Discovered. From the Lansing (Mich.) Republican. At the last meeting of the State Medical Society a committee was ap- iiointed to report on the laws or hy gienein relation to our public schools." The committee conh-is of Dr. Hitch cock, of Kalamazoo, Dr. Kedzie, of Lansing, and Drs. McGrawaud Novee of Detroit, At a recent meeting of the commit tee in .Detroit, the work was divided up amoug the members of the com niittee as follows : Dr. Hitchcock- Methods of Government iu Schools and their Influence Upou the Scholar, Hyinemcal, Mental aud Moral. Dr. Kedzie Hygiene as Applied to the Construction, Warmiug, Ventilation and Sewerage of Public School rooms. Dr. McGraw Mmtal Hygiene, in Respect to tbe Methods in Public Schools, Hours of Study, the Forcing System, frizes and lie wards, etc. and the Kiudergarten. Dr. Noyes Hyeiene of tbe i.ye in Public Schools. Uur readers will thus see thuta most important investigation has been un dertaken by tne btate Medical boeie ty, and from our personal knowledge ot the members of the committee we hazard nothing in saying tbat this important work will be well done. Ice work thus assumed by the medical profe-sion, aiming to remove preventable causes of disease in the public school, is a sufficient reply to tbe sneers so often heard in regard to tbe mercenary motives of the profes 8ion. It is just such investigations as this committee bave undertaken, ap plied to all the relations of life, which would fall legitimately within the province of tbe State Board of Health. Dr. iedzie nas begun tue examina tion of school rooms In our city, and the results already reached are such as should attract the earnest attention of all who are interested in public schools, or who care for the hpalth and well-being of the rising genera tion. He has visited fourteen school rooms, analyzed tbe air in each one, tested the condition of the room iu regard to temperature, the degree of moisture preent,and tbe state of ven tilation. He states that there is not a properly ventilated school room in this city. The foulest air was found in the Hieh School buildine. where eight parlsof carbonic acid were found iu 1,000 of air, instead of four parts in 10,000. The next foulest air was found In the ward school in the Fifth Ward. Next came tbe school rooms in North Lansing and ibe Second Ward. In none of these was there anything worthy the name of ventilation in operation. In some of theie a pipe twoor three inches in diameter served to introduce fresh air in to a room occu pied by 35 to 50 pupils. Tbe only real attempt at ventilation was found in Kindergarten, in tbe Second Ward, and in the scnools in the Third and Fourth Wards, where the purest air was found of all the rooms examined; and yet it was so foul that no human being should be compelled to breathe it for six hours a day. Iu all the rooms, nave these last, a large number of scholars complained of headache while in the school room. Another cof-equence -f ImDerfect ventilation w., the marked difference in temperattr between the air at the floor level and that three or four feet er above the floor. A lake of cold air covered the floor, undisturbed by any currents of ventilation. In one room in North Lansing the difference iu ihe temperature at the floor level and that three or four feet above the floor was 14 degrees ; iu the Fifth Ward school house the difference in one room was 13 degrees, aud iu the other 19 degrees. The laws of hygiene re quires the head to be kept cool and the feet warm. This result can be secured in these school rooms only by the scholar standing on his head f The humiliating confession must be made that in the construction of our school rooms the subject oi ventila tion has either been overlooked, or else we have resorted to petty experl mcuU; not worthy the name. Now that the rooms are built, their ventila tion is difficult If not necessarily im perfect. In the construction of a school room, as earnest attention should be given to securing adequate ventilation as to securing the proper amount of light. The one is as im portant as the other. We understand tbat Dr. Kedzie in tends to visit a large number of schools in our State, aud give them the same eareful examination that he has be stowi d upon the schools of our city.

[From the New Orleans Times, 9th.] One of the most extraordinary in stances of human privation on record, and a calamity that has rarely ben equaled in the history of maritime disaster, has been brought to light through Mr. John Saville, first ofllcer of the American ship Golden Hind, who reached the city from Rio de Ja neiro on Tuesday. The wreck of the ship Golden Hind has already been recorded, but the uaparalleled sufferings of the portion of her crew who yet survive, we be lieve has never yet been made public. In a long interview, yesterday, Mr. Saville detailed all the frightful par ticulars, and we give the fearful story in his own words. THE FIRST OFFICER'S NARRATIVE. The American ship Golden Hind, Capt. Benjamin F. Bobbins, left New York on the 12tn of February, on a voyage to San Francisco. When in the latitude of St. Catherine's we ex perienced a series of heavy westerly gales, which continued for nearly a month with great violence. On tbe 13th of June l&9t, when on the west side of Patagonia, and at "the Pacific entrance to tbe Straits cf Magellan, the pintles and cudeeons of the rud der gave way, and it floated off. Three days were consumed in constructing a temporary one of spare spars. It lasted about a week, but in another heavy ga'e this was also carried away, and we drifted at tbe mercy of the winds. On the second day after this last disaster, the Golden Hind struck between two rocks, one forward and one aft, on the western coast of Pata gonia. Three boats were hurriedly prepared, tbe men put on extra suits of clothes, laid in a small quantity of provisions, and at seven o'clock that evening lowered away. In tbe hurry of departure nearly all of our nautical instruments were left on board, and, in fact, many articles absolutely neces sary. There were three boats lowered, the first under the command of Capt Robbins; the second commanded by myself, and the third in charge of Mr. Webb, the second mate. Each con tained seven men. Mr. Webb assert ing that he knew the situation better than we did, parted company almost immediately, and it being then quite dark, we lay under the lee or tbe land until morniug. The sea, at the time we left the ship, was breaking over ner lore yard, and during the night she beat to pieces on tbe rocks. SEARCH FOR THE MISSING BOAT. The next morning the last vestige of tbe Golden jlinu had disappeared.- and a search, which continued two days, was made for the other boat, but no trace of her could be seen. We have long ere this concluded that she was swamped, and that her entire crew was drowned. Upon examina tion, it was found that we bau a small box and a bag of hard bread, the latter soaked with sea water, about twenty cans oi Peel, and a little tea and conee. An allowance of one cracker to each man, and one can of beef to fourteen was at first i.-sued, but this speedily decreased to half a cracker, and finally we did not taste beef more than once a week. WITHOUT A COMPASS. A few days after we left the wreck the Captain's boat was swamped, and we lost our compass, tb onlv instru me nt we had, aud a quantity of the provisions. An attempt was made to reach Sandv Point, a Chilian convict settlement, and the coaling station of the Pacific mail steamers, about two thirds tbe way through the Straits of Magellan, but our course could only be determined by tbe sun and stars, THE DREARY ASPECT. It was then mid winter, the mount ains along the coast were covered with snow and ice, aud the mercury must bave been several degrees below zero. We pulled close to tue land, working all night in talr weather, and during a heavy blow 1 mding and going into camp. There were plenty of scrub trees along the coast, aud as we were pro vided with two batcuets and a good supply of matches, a fire was always to be procured. During these visits we secured qui tea good supply of shell fib resembling the muscle, but we found that this diet brought on con stipation, and the entire party became unwell. ILLNESS. For about twenty days the men held out admirably ; but in the bitter cold a number were frost-bitten, and our legs and feet were terribly swollen. On Koine into camp we constructed a tent of the boat's sail and a mizzen royal sail with the oars. A fire was built in the center, and the fourteen men sat around it the night through. We suffered terribly iroui loss of sleep. as no one dared to remain away from the fire lor fear of ireezing to death. and the tent was too small to hold all in a reclining position. At the end ot the twentieth day, tbe general debility from insufficient food. aud the extreme pain in our limbs, rendered the progess slow, and very often we camped lor several days at a time. The allowance oi bread had been reduced to a quarter of a cracker day, and very often the men did without for a day or two to help out the supply. Their conduct through out the dreadful ordeal was most cour ageous. .Every man rendered implicit obedience, and although the ravages of hunger rendered each almost an animal, the general wehare was never lost sight cf. Almost the entire mouin of July was spent in pulling in what we be lieved to be tue directum of Sandy Point. The only human beings we met were an Indian aud two squaws in a canoe. They treated us cordially, and willingly exchanged a duck for a small quantity of tobacco, but they hud no o her urovisious. We had se cured from tbe sbip two rifles, aud oue of the crew shot a duck ; but the pow der became wet, and our weapons were useless. A dead duck found among the rocks was also secured and eaten, but, with the exception of the shell fish, this was the only food we secured. a 11 it HUNGER. In the latter part of July the weath became fearfully tempestuous, and after several days of fruitless buffeting we went into our last encampment. It was a terrib'y bleak and desolate spot, shut out from the sea by high cliffs, and filled with low, stunted trees. We found, however, a few roots, some berries, and strange to say, a little celery, and, not knowing whether the vegetables were poison ous or not, each man partook raven ously of whatever he could find. The high tides prevented our securing any sbell-fish, and the few seals we saw were too timid to capture, but we se cured water in abundance from the streams running down the side of the mountain. DEATH. Here the men became seriously ill. Their legs were swollen to frightful proportions; but few could wear their boots, and a majority wandered about with their feet tied up In old cloth and pieces of cinvas. Some, unable to walk at all, crawled about on their hands and knees. At length, a man named White, a seaman, became delirious and shortly afterward died. The ground was so bard frozen that it was impossib'e to dig a grave ; so we carried the body a short distance from the tent, and laid u in tne ousnes. Tbe next one attacked was a young reiiow we called Dan sailors, you know, never give their full name ex cept on the articles and be died with in three hours after he became deliri ous. '1 he carpenter, a man from Liv erpool, was the next victim ; then we lost Charley, a German seaman, and nnally another sailor called Frank All of them died within ten days o each other, and all were lain side by side out in the bushes. As each one left us, we took his clothes to keep the living ones warm, but during all these days not oie of us bad a mouthful of rood. THE BANQUET ON HUMAN FLESH. At length the steward, taking one ot the men with htm out into tbe brush, returned with slices cf meat, which were roasted over the fire and easerly devoured. We all of us knew we were sustaining life on the bodies or our dead companions, but no man assed a question, sometimes we bad it boned and sometimes roasted. It tasted something like beef, but it makes me shudder now to th i nk about it. THE RESCUE. When we had eaten almost all of the last body, the schooner Eagle, of Port Stanley, t aulkland Islands, out seal fishing, hove in sight. One of our men crawled up to the head of the rocks, and waving the American flag. with the union down, attracted their attention. The v picked us up and re ceived us all with as great kindness as ii we nad been their own Kindred We found that we had pulled about lwo-third9 of the way through the straits or Magellan, and were then within sixty miles or bandy Point. There, after tbe thiid day, the Ea gle landed us, and the Chilian Gov ernor al once provided us with every thing In tbe way of food and clothing we required. He would bave sent us by the steamer to Valparaiso, but be fore she arrived, the United States sloop-of-warOssipee put intoportand tooK us on board Captain Itobbms, myself, tbe steward and five seamen who were left out of a crew of twenty- one, rrorn tbe time the Golden liind went to pieces we spent forty-eight days in open boats, with only tbe sub sistence 1 have named. Tbe captain ef the Ossipee shipped the six seamen, although all of them were on tbe sick list, and brought Captain Robbins and myself to Rio de Janeiro. There I met Capt. Gorham Crowell, of the bark Colin E. ' McNeil, who kindly volunteered to bring me to New Orleans. Mr. Saville requested our reporter to state that the tieatment be had re ceived -during the voyage of the Me- -Neu could not have been more court eous had he owned the vessel, and he desires to earnestly thank Capt. Crow- en lor unremitting attentions. THE SMOKE NUISANCE. Mr. B. F. McCarty, of Cleveland. has made a discovery which promises to settle, partially at least, the ques tion or smoKe consumption, and in different wayfrom any yet suggested. Mi. McC. was looking after means to secure a better draft for a sluggish fire. and the idea occurred to him, after other devices had failed, to try the ef fects or steam. A small pipe was made to conduct the "dry steam" from the top of the boiler to the upper part or tne I urn are, where it entered in two small jets striKing downward on the burning fuel. No sooner was the steam injected into the furnace. than the sluggish, smoky fire sprang up into a clear, bright, tellowisb and intensely hot flame, filling tbe whole furnace with a loud roar. The end sought a strong draft was attained, and in addition the long sought desid eratum of a smokeless fire. This sim ple apparatus was next applied to tbe furnaceor the Cleveland Jierala print ing establishment, and that journal gives an interesting account of there- suit. It says : " The smoke stack tbat had long been a nuisance to ourselves and our neighbors was instantly as in nocent or smote as a deserted house ; and so it has continued, save when the steam has been turned off for the sake of experiment and comparison. The exact ci emicnl process is not yet clearly determined. The most proba ble explanation is tnat the agitation caused by tbe violent injectiou of the particles or steam brings the oxygen of tbeairinto more rapid combination with the coal gas, and so facilitates combustion. Tbe steam Itself may be decomposed, aud so lurntsb some ox ygen, but this does not add to the heat, as an equal amount or the heat gaiued in the recombination of the oxygen is lost in its separation from the hydrogen of the Bteam, There is, in the Herald furnace, a Saving of about twenty- nye per cent- or the ruel consumed, which represents the amount of carbon hitherto carried off in smoke. By Mr. McCarty's simple contrivance on wnien ne has secured patent the Herald saves money by tbe consumption of less fuel ; it no longer annoys its neighbors with a cloud of black smoke, even when fresh coal is thrown on the fire ; and the engineer leports that he can ret up steam much quicker tban before." A REMARKABLE FEAT. No recent triumph of engineering has been more decisive tban tbat just achieved at the Hoosac Tunnel. Last week a junction was effected between the headings from the eastern side and the central shaft, and this success is regarded as positive proof tbat in les than a year from this time the great Massachusetts bore will be completed; indeed, the prophets are very exact. and declare tbat " on October 13, 1873, all goes well, there win be an open ing through Hoosac Mountain from east to west," But almost anything can be believed of this remarkable enterprise, now, for it appears that al though the shaft was suuk 1,030 feet into the earth, tbe heading from it was so true that when the junction was made with the opening from the east, it showed a dinerence in line of only five-sixteenths of an inch. This result seems almost incredible, but it rests upon the statements of the Mas sachusetts State Engineers, who have muue a careful examination of the work. At a school in Greene county.Iowa, the scholars caught a skunk and put in the schoolma'am's desk, think ing she would "smell a mice" aud give them a holiday. She wasn't one that kind. She took a spring clothes fastent d it on her nose, went on with the exercises, and let the schol ars enjoy the perfrime. a How Edwin Forrest Rehearsed and Handled Subordinate Actors. [From Anecdotes of Forrest in the Philadelphia Press.] To the majority of actors he was a source of terror. The announcement of bis coming to a theater was almost invariably tbe cue for ei'.her fear or rebellion among those who bad acted with him, and oftner among those who had never had that privilege. One actor would relate to the others instances of Mr. Forrest'B tyranny, which would set the company up in arms against him, and when he arri ved in the best of dispositions, and tbe desire to get through his engage ment as happily as possible, be would find bis supporters in rebellion, one half bating, tbe other half fearing him. The dread tbat actors had of him la almost beyond belief. Young men who were accustomed to get thro' their minor parts with credit on ordi nary nights, would falter, stammer, and injrloriousiy breaK down while rehearsing with him. In an engage ment placed by him In Washington a few years ago, some notable instan ces of this occurred. Mr. Forrest was to open in "Macbeth," and attended the last rehearsal himself, the other re hearsals generally being conducted by tbe actor who traveled with him. On this occasion the company was a par ticularly bad one, even for Washing ton; consisting principally of what were known as "war actor." Mr. Forrest came on the stage with a very pleasant smile, but before the first act was over the smile disappeared, aud by tbe third act a heavy frown and ominous shaking of the head denoted that Mr. Forrest was himself again. Tbe readings of tbe actors were as bad as bad could be. He endeavored to instruct them, but to no purpose. When the caldron scene ia tbe fourth act was reached the tragedian's little etock of patience was quite worn out. The cue was given for the apparitions to rise through tbe caldron. The First Apparition did so, and spoke his two lines without difficulty. Tbe second one was not so successful. He had to say immediately upon bis ap pearance "Macbeth ! Micbeth ! Mac beth!" to which Macbeth replies, "Had I three ears, I'd hear thee!" The apparition, before speaking, glanced at Mr. Forrest, and immedi ately loEt bis voice, his words being inaudible. Forrest replied in the words of the text, laying scornful em phasis on the words three, and, much confused, the aparition continued in the words "Be bloody, bold and reso lute," laying the emphasis upon the word bloody, as though it weie a qualification of the word bold, thus giving an original and ridiculous read ing to tbesentence. Mr. Forrest rush ed at the unfortunate young man, roailng out, "You're a butcher sir, Shakespeare doesn't want me to be bloody bold; be wants me to be bloody, bold and reso ute. Go down, sir go down." Seven times that young man came up the caldron, never to get fur ther than bloody bold, tc., and so ex asperated did Forrest become that he insisted eventually on the person per forming the First Apparition, "doub ling" the other two, although all three should be entirely different in appear ance and manner. The troubles with the young man, however, were not to end there, in the nun act the nu- fortunate youth had to play the sec ond officer, aud rush in to announce to Macbeth tbe approach of Malcolm's army. This i a very trying saluta tion for a novice, and many failures bave been caused by it. Mr. Forrest's young man, however, rushed in at the orooer moment and droDDed unon one knee, tbe usual business. The tragedian, who was as energetic at re heral as he was at night, rushed at him, seized him by the throat, and shouted: The devil damn thee black, thou cream faced loon. Where gottest thou that goose look V The young man replied in the text, "There are ten thousand." "Geese, vilain," roared Forrest, giving him a abase; when, instead of replying in the simple words of his part, " Sol diers. sir," the poor wretch cried out, " Ye-e-e-8, Mr. Forrest." This was too much for Forrest, who threw him off with tremendous force, and then stamped np and down the stage boil ing with rage. In one of his turns bis eye again lighted on the second officer, who had picked himself up, and stood wondering what wonld come next. Forrest gazed at him fix edly, and in a voice of the utmost calmness said, " Sir, you are a butch er by trade, are you not ? " "No, sir, I am an actor.' "An actor," replied Forrest : " you are not, sir ; you are a butcher, air ; go and resume your call ing; kill sheep, kill oxen, kill asses, if yon will, but never kill Shake speare more." This ebullition-cooled the tragedian down, and tbe rest of the rehearsal and the performance passed off without further trouble. Mr. Forrest, however, never forgot tne "young butcher," as he called him, and has been heard to say that he followed him everywhere. in Cincinnati, a few months after ward, an actor playing Seyton In'the same tragedy, on coming in to an nounce the death or Lady Macbeth, confounded Mr. Forrest's ears by say ing, instead of the words, "Tbe Queen, my lord, is dead," said, " The King, mv lord. Is dead," to which Mr. tor- rest equally astonished his audience by forgetting himself, and replying, is he, then wnat am i doing here .' ' Forrest vowed that this was theyouog butcher from Washington, and it took much persuasion to convince him to tbe contrary. To a man of so much excitability as Mr. Forrest, no catling in the world wag so liKelv to draw forth the roughest portions of bis na ture. The homage, mingled with fear, he everywhere received from his fel low-actors served only to increase bis natural vanity. VI late years, when his temper received additional acri mony from illness, the lines of the actors playing in Forrest's pieces were by no meaus cast in pleasant places. One of tbe most tryingordeals through which a young actor ever bad to pass was to play Lucullus to Forrest's Da mon in the play of "Damou and Pyth ias." Lucullus ia Damon's servant. aud upon him depends the success of Forrest's greatest scene in the play, viz, : that in which Lucullus an nounces to Damon that he has slain his horse. Here Forrest rose to the very height of bis grandeur, and his Eassion was something terrible to be old. He always seized Lucullus by tbe waist, threw him down, picked him up agaiu, threw bim down, and Dually rushed off to Syracuse, drag ging Lucullus after bim. Tbe unfor tunate actor playing Lucullus had al ways to be provided with a strong leathern belt around bis waist, by which Forrest seized bim, and many time when Mr. Forrest was in more than ordinary vigor, he has been known to lift Lucullus by this same belt, and actually throw him off at the wing, with the most utter reck lessness of the consequences either to tbe poor actor tbe scenery, or the prompter. So great a dread arose in the minds of actors regarding this part of Lucullus, that at one time Mr. Forrest was obliged to travel with his own Lucullus, as the only means of securing the proper interpretation of this great scene. Nearly every actor who bas ever layed with Mr. Forrest haa bis own little anecdote to tell of Forrest's grim humor or scathing sarcasm ; but such anecdotes mainly depend for appreci ation upon an imitation of tbe trage dian's voice and manner. That Mr. Foirest bad abundaut humor of its kind, no odc can be in doubt. A re mark of his made in Baltimare a few years ago has become famous as a stage tradition. Mr. Forrest's legs were a theme of great admiraliou to the world at large, aud of no little pride to himself. The play was " Yir- ginius," and Mr. Forrest, in the cos- a tume of the Roman general, was standing at the wings in bis usual firm attitude, and with his usual scornful smile, gazing at the actors and super numeraries standing on the stage. The lower limbs of the actors for the most part being plentifully padded, C resented a respectable appearance, ut the poor supers, being, as id usual ly the case in American theaters, mere overgrown boys, and having so pads, their limbs were ridiculous, and the fleshings with which they were cov ered being a world too wide for tbeii shrunken shanks, their appearance roused the Ire of Mr. Forrest, Mr. Ford the manager, passing at the time, Forrest called hia attention to tbe supers, and said : " Mr. Ford, for heaven's sake, what are those?" " Those," said the manager, " are Roman citizens, Mr. Forrest." " Ro man citizens! Ye Gods, did Romans have legs like those?" Tbeairof ut ter disgust attending the words was Indescribable, and Forrest stalked' on the stage as if he could devour the Roman citizens, legs and alL SAM. Capt. Scott always said there was ho boat on the western waters like the Flying Dolphin, for speed and beauty. He knew every inch of her, from the great black hold below to the delicate white railing on top, as wetl as he did bis wife's face and figure. Peo ple said, too, he was as fond of one as tbe other. He was standing one eve ning, leaning over tbe deck railing, watching tbe sun go down behind the Virginia hills, when one of the pas sengers came upon him. "That's a curious fellow yonder," nodding to a lame boy who was sitting on the deck, whittling. "'Work on the boat?" "Satu? Well, no. I can't say Sam works, exactly. You see be bas no more strength as to body than a cat. Lots of head. Good brain, sir." "I noticed bim selling some trifles this morning odd little toys and charms for a lady's watch chain." "He made those, Sam did. I'd like you to looK into his pen. Sam !'' Sam stopped whistling and shut up his knife, and then limped np. He had a thin but remarkably pleasant, even jolly face. "I'd like you to show Judge Brooks your cubby-hole yonder, lad," watch ing them as they walked away togeth er. Somebody, he thought, ought to give Sam a helping hand, and he was perpetually boasting of tbe boy to every passenger, in tbe hopes tbat some ol them would be interested in him. "It wouldn't cost Brooks the rent of one house," he said to the mate, "to give Sam an education ; not as much altogether as he spends foi a horse. I tell you it galls me, South, to see a boy like tbat left a beggar, for want of a chance." Judge Brooks, meantime, looked curiously in tbe little closet where Sam Blept and worked. There was a small turning lathe. and several knives aDd files. On the table were one or two trays filled with rings made of can nel coal curiously carved, of purple and white mus;Ie shells, crosses, an chors and hearts of gum copal, and long strings of miuature keys, books, etc.. turned out of mother-oi-pearl. "Very curious indeed; very pretty, Is this all you have done V" said tne Judge. Sam, after a minute's hesitation, took out of a box a complete steam engine, about half a foot high. "I'm! ha! What's the use of this now? Can't sell that for a lady's cnain." "No." said Sam. "I made it at odd times. I understood tbe eugine bet ter when x bad made it." The Judge looked at him-curiously. I really don't see the necessity why you should understand tbe steam en gine." "Hike machinery," said Sam, sim ply. I could bave invented it if" "If what?" "It I bad been different." "Had no schooling, eh ?" I can read and write; that's alL Sam winced a little at the rough tone; but be answered as usual with downright directness. "I'm not able to earn my living by any kind of work, sir, and I have no friends. Two years ago Capt Scott said to me, 'Sam,' says he 'come aboard the Flying Dolphin. There's plenty for you to eat aud drink, and may be something Ml turn up.' I sell these things and keep myself in shoes and the like. The captain mostly gives me hia old clothes." L in ! na? Well. I'll buy a few of these Gimcracks for my wife and daughter. These charms, now; what do you say they cost ?" the judge round Lapt. Scott with his wife and daughter when be enter ed the cabin, one hand full of parti colored toys. The ladies were de lighted with them, and profuse in ex clamations. "Yes." said the captain. "The boy has great ability, if it were cultivated. If 1 were a rich man, I know no bet ter use I could make of my money tban to give such a helpless cripple a chance." Mrs. Brooks dropped the charms as though they burned her. "JNow Lapt. Scott." she said, sharp ly, "I will have no such idea put into my husband's head. He is only too ready to fling away bis money on every beggar. What good can this boy be to us. or to anybody, for that matter!" She stopped, turning red, for there in front of ber stood Sam. Tbe boy's lip trembled a little, but be said, quietly, "You dropped some of tbe things you bought. Judge Brocks;" and handing them to him turned and went out. "I'm very sorry," began the judge. "Your wife should be," said the captain, roughly. "The boy is no beggar. I wouldn't tramp on a worm in that fashion;" and he followed Sam. Somehow, the story went about among tbe crew that evening, (the captain told it) and everybody bad a joke or kind word for Sam. If he had beeu a gloomy, melancholy lad, it is very likely bis lameness would not have made him the favorite he was. But be was a merry little fellow, ready Willi nis laugh at everybody's JoKes, no matter how poor. He bad a good voice, too, they thought, and every evening his shrill pi pes could be heard above the chorus or tbe men singing, Tbe songs he knew were not to be counted. To-night be did not care to sing but stole away to his den and went to work at his lathe. "What ails you?" said South, the mate, rapping him on the back. "You're bothered about something, Sam. Out with it." Sam got up, standing on his sound leg so as to hold himself at his full height. "It's onlv if I could do something like other boys or men. Thete things are of no use. I I am beggar, as she called me, Mr South, and 1 11 never be of any account to any living being." South was a rough fellow, and hesi tated. "I'm not used to talking re ligion, Sam, and you know it. But it's my belief that God never made a roy to be of no account, and someday He gives them all a chance to show what they're here for. Your tlme'll come. Now come down. The men want you to sing." "Not to-night." He sat down and began to turn the lathe violently, as he did whenever he was troubled. . "He frets like a girl," thought South looking at the boy's tbin cheek and delicate hand. "Books are the work for Sam; that's sure." For South's idea of accepting trouble was to knock down the man who injured him ; any grieving beyond, a puzzle and bewil dered bim. Sam worked steadily all that eve ning. At night hecrept Into his bunk, it of it a is I, "I to If but he could not sleep. The boy waa hurt deeper than anybody could know. He knew how weak in body he was and without any education his life would be useless. And he-would become so helpful and good a man, if he had but the chance- which other boys did not care for. But where was the chance? He turned restlessly on his narrow bed ntil midnight, and then he got up and dressed himself". He would go Out on deck In the fresh air. As be went oat coder tbe clear moonlight, the solemn shadows of the hills on either side, tne poor boy pray ed to God to give bim his chauee. As he turned into the lower deck, a carious smell came with a sudden whiff toward him. Sam stopped a moment, then hobbled quickly toward tbe bold. A dense curl of black smoke crept out of the door. He flung it open. On tbe lower step lay an ever turned lame. "That drunken Btile!" muttered Sam. From the lamp a tongue of flame crept along the floor, a mere thread, which a paii of water would extinguish. But at the further end of this tongue it licked and twirled about a keg, had ad! ready charred the hoops,. and was thrusting itself up to the head. The blood seemed to stand still in Sam'a veins. He knew the keg was full of gunpowder, enough to blow the boat into atoms. Could he give the alarm X The watchmen were at the other end of the boat. Long before he could reach them, tbat glittering, writhing point would have done its work. - For himself there was a chance of escape. With a step he could reach the small skiff of the boat and rush it into the water. Life was dear. I doubt if this thought stayed one moment in Sam's mind. An empty pail lay near him. He caught it up and filled it with water- Then he stopped. He must go up close to the powder. The flames were crackling all about it. A strong boy-would have rushed desperately in. But Sam had only the courage of a girl. He staggered as he went; his breath left him. But he hobbled straight up to the Jaws of death. The next minute the floor was drenched in water and tbe fiery tongue died like a living thing, hissing venomously. Tbe watchman hearing the sound, and catching the smell of smoke, gave the alarm, and rushed to the lower deck to find the fire out aud Sam lying exhausted on the floor, hia arms oyer the powder keg. Tbe cry of lire once given, a wild terror spread through the boat. In a few minutes the passengers, men and woo en, were huddled together in the cabin, pale and chattering. Capt. Scott came in the door. "What is It?" cried Mrs. Brooks. "Is there danger? Are we to be the next victims of these . murderous steamboats?" "There is no danger now, madam. I wish you would come with me, gentlemen, and see what tbe danger baa been, and who it was, mnderGod, that saved you." The men crowded after him. They were Southern and Wsstern men, whose hearts are easily touched, and whose hands find their way readily to their pockets. They delight, -too. In m eo tin tn anil voMrftlut iona . The next morning a meeting was called and a string of grateful resolu tions relative to Sam, which ended by a subscription list for a testimonial. Judge Brooks placed tbe money in the captain's hands : "I hope you will find it enough to do the lad some per manent good," he said. The captain's eyes were dim. "It will educate him thoroughly as a ma chinist." he said. "You will hear of that boy yet, sir." We have all heard of him. But it is not necessary to give his name or to tell anything concerning . him, ex cept tbat God gave him hia chance and he has used it as God would have him. Youlh't Companion. A NEW STORY. The Indianapolis Sentinel of recent date tel's the following story : Some years ago, there was a well known engineer, whose name ia not given for good and sufficient reasons, who ran a passenger train on one of the most popular and most traveled roads that run out of Indianapolis. At a certain place on the road, every night for about week, as the passen ger train ran by this engineer, came thundering along, it was certain1 to bo thrown from the track by obstructions placed there. Several of these mis haps Cju d loss of.-life, and the ability of the eugineer was being questioned. One night as the unfortunate train was hearing the fatal spot, the engin eer who sitting glum and silent at the throttle, turned to the fireman and said; "If this train jumps the track &t that place to night, you follow me; "DON'T STOP FOR ANYTHING, But keep close after me. Somebody has been throwing this train off the track and I'm going to catch him." When the train arrived at the usual place it struck a misplaced rail and was banked. Ihe engineer, clostiy followed by the fireman, jumped from the engine and ran into a cornfield and started up a man tbat lay con cealed there. L'pon bringing the cul prit back to the wreck tbe enraged passengers wanted to lyncn mm, but the engineer, astearn, cold, determin ed man, prevented tbem. saying he would iae care ot him, and through tbe intercession of the conductor the trembling wretch was left in the charge of the engineer. The train was righted and was soon speeding on its .ray. Tbe prison eer who had confessed the deed, had been seated on tbe engine and tbe fireman placed beside biiu as guard. W hen the train was on a smooth piece of track tbe engrneer beckoned the flremann to stand out of the way. -Tbe fireman stepped aside and the engineer picked up around stick of wood and struck: tbe criminal such a blow upon the head that it stuned him. He then caught tbe quivering form of the poor wretch, and opening tbe furnace doors, threw tbe body into the hot seething hell of flame The doors were shut, the train rattled along ant never, until upon bis death bed did the engineer confess the act, nor was ascertained what had been the fate the fiend who had been in tbe hab of throwing the passenger train off the track. A funny man tells how he has dis couraged a horse car conductor. Tbe latter asked him to "Make a little room, sir?" Says I, "You want me to make a little room, do you ?" Says he, "Yes, I do." Says I, "What kind of room do you want, a bath room or a billiard room?" Says he, "Sir, there room for eleven ca this seat." Says "Sir, there isn't. Says he, "There are eleven on the other side." Says I, see it, and there are ten on this side now, and you tell me there is room for eleven more." Says he, "I mean there U room for one more." Says I, "Well, why in thunder didn't you say so? One isn't eleven." He smiled with such an expression of en tire woe tbat the driver shouted whna hia hoRes. The young man who bas an ambi tion to make a great noise iu the world should learn boiler making. He can Re more noise at that trade thn anything else be can engage in.
