Graphic Account Sinking of the Ship Western Belle. The ship Western Ilclln, whlcn sunk In tho Ice-pack In the month of the St. Lawrence, was In latitude forty-four degrees thirty min utes, and lonaltude forty-seven deres twen ty minutes, aiK-onllng tn tho story of tho .mite, between seven and eltfht on the evening of MayL She was going at a moderate speed unuer short eanvas, with the weather very thick. They had that afternoon sighted tho ship President, about six miles off, but as night came on the rain poured down In torrents, and noneefiuld see more than a ship's length through the fog. The first mate had been on watoh and had Just handed the charge of tho ship to the second mat and Captain, tbe latter remarking that, as the weather woe thick, he would remain on dock. At a quarter past eight the watoh on deck wore startled by a Hugo, unproportloned ghostlike something bearing down upon them, whllo the watch below heard tho sharp, quick cry of " Ioe abeadl" Instantly followed bv the order " Hard up the bclm I" Th next Instant there waj a crash, and before the men could rise from their foot the water was pouring Into the ship in tons through a breach In her port bow. Confusion ruled for the next five min utes, as every man felt that the vessel was soon to sink from nndor bltn, and acted for himself. She was fast settling by the head, while the huge, phantom-like iceberg passed on stern of the ship and was lost to view aa sud denly as It had come upon them. Tho carpenter and Captain were quickly be low to ascertain the damage. The next ord T was: "Cut away the boats I " These were two In number, and were lashed upon skids In the manner of most sailing vessels. The Captain got twelve men to take one boat. The mate bad charge of the other, and some men worked for dear llfo tn get her launched. Others skulked about tenor-stricken. There was no time to load her w,th provlslr-ns. The lash ings had been cut with the carpenter's ax, and everything was done that could be done to fa cilitate tho launching of tho Captain's loat. "Come away, Captain; come away to our boatl The ship's not going to stay atloat till you get your boat out," shouted tho mate. "For C.od' sake, come away! Como, all of you We have room for you all In our bout." Still the Captain and his men stuck to their places at the bout. John Kollcy, the wheelsman, re fused all entreaties to enter the boat and tiled at his post. The mate, noticing that the Rtern of tbo vessel was lifting, ordered bis men to pull astern. There was a heavy sea running and a blinding rain. There might have been twenty vessels to succor them within tl mile, yet none could bo Boen. The mate, sitting In his boat, waited a little and watched anxiously tbe sinking ship, while the carpenter sat at the helm. All ot once the stern of the WYstein Itello rose higher, and the mate cried out to his men: "Pull away, men I" They pulled with a will, but got no further than a ship's length fiom . the vessel when she disappeared from view, going down like a diver. It waa less than twenty minutes from the time she struck that the ship went down. Thirteen persons were In and around tbo boats on dock, which they were trying to launch, but not one of them floated. If they did they uttered no cry that could be heard by tbe survivors In the boat. Nothing could be seen of either Captain or crow. It was ques tionable whether the survi-vors were much better off. They were in un open bont witb no provisions. They bad saved no olothing, and the carpenter was in his shirt and drawers, without shoes. Tbo sea was running high, and all that could be done was to keep the boat's bead to the sen, bail her out when she was swamping, and wait for morning. The cold was intense. There was no water until morn ing, when a small cask was floating nearby. It bad come up from the wreck. The crew hud no heart for work. Several gave themselves up for Inst and lay down In tbe bottom of tho boot, refusing work of any kind. At length, lute in the afternoon, a ship was sighted. She proved to be the President, ft Norwegian vessel, and tho same which had be";n seen in Iho alteration. She was bound for Quebec, and received tho survivors of the Western Ilelle with true hospitality. After fifteen hour of exposure the orcw were hard, ly able to help themselves, and some ot them bad to be helped over the side. Tbo mute win so benumbed be could hardly speak, and ro marked to your correspondent that In a few bours more, hud they not seen tho President there would have been a bont full of dead nica drilling nbout. fjucbec iMxu 11) Sjxcfai tu Chit cnoo Tribune. Guiteau's Fate—Decision of the District Supreme Court. WASHINGTON, May 21. The unanimous decision of the District Su premo Court on the ques'.ion raised by tho de fense in the Gultenu caso will bo announced Monday. The I'oat to-morrow will give tho following as the points of tbe dec'slon: The opinion of the court will broadly sus tain the position taken by the District-Attorney, that Jurisdiction is complete whero tho fatal blow is struck, without regard to tho locality of the actual demise. The court holds that tho bullet tired at the Presi dent by Guitcau on the 2d of July in Ibis city was the cause of bis death, and that tho trial could only bave boen held in Washington; that the douth of tho President in Now Jersey, except as affected by the local stiitute, could not change tbe Jurisdiction. Tbe assassin had not been in New Jersey, bad com mitted no offense against New Jersey lawB, and tbo mere fact of tbe victim being removed to Klberon to prolong bis life or save It, If possi ble, oould not be made to affect the character of the crime.

Kept in confinement, & most well-bred bulls are, they are always ready for play when let out, and this often leads to and ends in savage attacks on their keepers. The great, number of persons killed annually by bulls that had previously been considered perfectly kind shows the danger of placing any reliance on the good temper and behav ior of these animals. Breaking them to work has been rec ommended by some, both as a method of exercise and economy, and also a guard against bail temper. This would without doubt modify the disposition, as being accustomed to obey orders and fa miliarity with his driver would render him more tractable. Where cattle oi anv kind aroused as a team bulls will make a good one. They are easily broken anil will uo a creat timounl of work There is no doubt that the cost of keep ing might also be saved in this wav. In this part of the country, however, stock raiders will not take the trouble to use them for this purpose. In the first place it requires two to be kept where only one needed, and most farmers on improver. farms where fine stock is bred, woult consider a cattle team of any kind a nuisance for farm work. But there still remains the fact that where they are kept they must be handled in some way. To keep them in the best condition they must have exercise, and there is no doubt that many are injured for this purpose by confinement as well as high feeding. A daily walk of a mile will answer a good purpose, but this takes time. At the agricultural college an arrange ment for giving them exercise consists of a post s;t firmly in the ground and aooutsix lect nigh, a pole or scantling about sixteen feet long is fastened in the center to the top of the post so that it will turn easily. The bull being hitched to one end of this by a strap to the ring in the nose can iret all the exercise he needs in an hour, without taking the time of an attendant. In many cases a bull can be allowed to run with the rest ol the cattle, and if habitually allowed to do so will seldom become cross. If inclined to he unruly apiece of still' sole leather ten inches wide by nineteen long lasteued across the face by a small strap from each horn and ono around the face or a muzzle will keep him within bounds as well as make it safe for people. A yard a lew rods square enclosed with a -strong fence and a'aached U the stable is one of the best places for a bull that is to be kept up at all seasons. In this he can be led and kept with compar ative safety to his attendant. In nearly all account ol attack by bulls it is from those kept continually in the stable aud when being led out or handled in some way If they must be kept in this way the precautions to be taken are first: every Lull one year old or over should have a copper ring in the nose, by which to Handle mm. un iinssnoulu be used a staff six or seven feet long with an iron hook and set screw on the end, so made as to bo easily as securely fastened to ring. Always use this whether the bull is cross or not, and the person handling will be comparatively safe. A bull should be handled always as far as pos sible bv the same person, who should deal willi hinl gently but firmly. Pound ing or abusing a bull always iiicrea-ses their pugnacity. A sharp blow with whip is far belter than a club or pitch fork to subdue him. Finally eternal vigilance is the price of life in handling bulls. Very often uo warning of an attack which may prove fatal is given, and one that has always been thought gentle will attack and kill a man without auy seem ing provocation. Always be on the guard and never give one the least op portunity or advantage. Never go near one after butchering, or with blood on the clothes. This will often arouse one to violence. A number of good men have, been killed before their tiuie in this state, simply from lack of caution, which all who are obliged to handle bulla ihould axerciee. Jji.tri.it foul and 2'rtb-und.
