The occasion was a lively one. Judging
from the bustling noise mid utter coo

There lay tho' ' -

as the uY'tiM! and blatk columns ot smoke

We already feel an undulatory motion,
the ship roils and tosses on the dark
blue waves. The delicious sensation in
creases, and several are reflected on as
already mingling their sorrows with the
brlney deep. The sea rises higher and
higher, and at last night close In and
we are alone, groping our way through
the expanse less deep. The next morn
ing before daylight we wandered on deck
and took our position on the forecastle,
and there we beheld a sight never to be
loat to memery. As we gazed luto the
deep, there a picturo met our eyes most
novel and sublime. As we plunged
through the mighty waves, a huge wave
LEAFED FAR t.VTO THB AIR,
and as it left the vessel it sectned to be a
sheet of lire surrounded, and cast in all
direction a apray which formed Itself into
drops of light resembling electrical jparka
from a battery. The sight was most
grand and awe inspiring. There,' too,
swimming iu front, and always in the
lead, were porpoises, which, too, were
Illuminated with phosphorescent light.
So bright were they we could JUcern
their very eyes, and as they shot ahead
of us some hundred yards they left a
wake of most brilliant Ure.- We feasted

On awakening on the morning of the
fourth day we were surprised to find
ouraelves anchored hi ; tbe harbor Of
Nassau, one ot the Bahama Islands ; at d,
as we oame on deck, is seemed aa if we
had sailed Into early June, So warm
was It that we found our frletid flyde, ot
the St. Louis Republican, trylne ti strike
a trade with tho harbor pilot, to theel
tect that Hally was to give the pilot his
overcoat and three paper collars tor a
linen duater. But ttm shrewd pilot dr
dined, and Hyde ordered ice cold lemon

morning, nnd the lemonade too, was
lovely. The short, chopping waves made

also, we are treated with a moat magnlll

With the; aignil keeper, we feast
our eyes fcn a small lake, set In gem,
like green In the distance. Between
us and the lake lies the various
tropical trees, fanned by a slight breeze,
and we are again held apell-bound by
the sublimity of the panorama before
us, A ahsrp nudge from our guide
awakes ua from our dream, and we un
reluctantly leave the scene to return to

enjoy a lively sail to the lower end ot

Interesting a study. We again find our
pleaannt trip at an end, and step on to
tho pier at the loot of Bay street, and a
short walk brings us to
Tho market Is a rudely constructed
building, being about one-half a block
in size aud entirely constructed of rocks,
In such a manner as to. present a piece
of odd architecture. The market's trat
fie principally depends on the hotels and
white residents ot the city. In it we find
all vegetables peculiar to this clime
tomatoes, cucutnhers and airawberriea
attract cur undivided attention, and our
month relishes the sight extraordinarily,
and we imagine how nice they will taste
when we (lino at the Koyal Victoria.
On either side ot tho Market are hitched
small mules loaded down to the guards
with fruits and vegetables ot all kinds.
It seems to be the venders height of de
light .to eeo how much his mule will
stand up with without giving out under
the ponderous loud. Their mules are
about the sla of an American youth's
hobby horse, and I do not exaggerata I
think when I say these little muK-s must
have five hundred pound burden, It
seerns a shame, but it'a custom,and muat
bo adhered to.
We next direct our guide to forward
ua to the
SETTLEMENTS OF TDE NEGROES,
who form such a prominent feature of
the Isle, As we proceed through the
middle of the street we are infested on
every hand by beggars, Nassau Is full
ot beggara scientific beggars, too. If
they appeal to your sympathy and you
reimburse them, you will soon find your
self ut the head f au Immense proces
sion, 'lis then, as the captain general
at the head ot a beggars procession, you
will create some amusement for your
friends who happen by. e beat a
hasty retreat and soon Hud ouraelves In
the negro aettlements. We wander down
a long street or lane, surrounded on
either side by little gardens In which
stand rudeehaiilies.constructedot stones
They are In a most plcttiresquo state ol
dilapidation, surrounded, covered, shel
tered, and fondled by every kind of bush
and tree native to the' tropics. This la,

scene down the lane was lovely Indeed.
The tall trees, with their magnificent
leaves and branches, wave on either side
until they betid and meet In the distance,

home of the Nassau negro, in tne

old man wore an expression ol peculiar

seem mucn younger thu ne really was;
