Among the Shipping—Scranton and Biloxi—Farragot's Birthplace —Jeff Davis' Home. An Ocean Voyage—Howare of Counterfeits. We took a .'cry early train from Mont gomery for Mobile on Tuusilay, January -0th, mul arrived at our (levtination shortly after daylight. MOBILE. la a (iiaint old eily on the Alabama river, just ahovo almost, at the point where it empties into Mobile Day. It is two miles from tho uptown wharves to the beach, and tho bay is thirty miles long, witk an average width of ten miles. The city is situated on a very level stretch of land all the land around there is level and is a very strange sort of place. I have never been in Cuba, but Mobile looks to me just as I have always imagined a Cuban city looks. Tho buildings are ever so old and an cient looking particularly tho resi dences and most of the streets are nar row and bordered with magnolias and live oaks. The resiliences are liall-con- cealed by southern trees, fihrubs and vines, are spider-webbed with iron bal conies and piazzas, and surrounded by by musty brick walls. In the center of the city one square is made into a beau tiful park, containing numerous iron benches for the accommodation of the weary, and filled with a grove of mag nificent live oaks gnarled old-timers that must have been planted ever and ever so long ago. The river channel is dcen enough to admit big ocean vessels, ;md the. wharves are always lined with them ; and lots of smaller water-craft of all descriptions may also be seen. Oys ter vessels of various sizes are thicker than hops, and schooners come from the West Indies with loads anil loads of oranges and other fruits. Fred (he was another chum of mine) and I explored the boats, studied the rigging and watch ed them load cotton and lumber. We wre two days in Mobile anil we upent nearly all the tima upon the shipping. We went aboard tho steamer l!'iti', of Liverpool, and watched them stowaway cotton down in the hold. You'd hardly believe how big a steamer's hold looks when you get down into it. I had al ways heard that sea-captains were "bad men," and so we hesitated for a long time before striking up a conversation with the curly and sandy-haired Anglo Saxon, who, dressed in blue and wearing a sailor cap, was superintending the lading. CURIOSITY SATISFIED. : . aa But there's one thing I always won dered at. Strange coincidence, but Fred had ftlways wondered at the'same thing, and when the officer came aft to see if the little water-boat had filled the han dle's tank with drinkable water sufficient to last the voyage we with fear and trembling interrogated him on that particular point. Quite to the reverse of the traditional sea captain he answer ed our questions quite civilly indeed, as though he liked to. Well, said lie, I 11 tell you w y we don't 'ave pilot-'ouses hover the w'eels on hocean vessels. Hon your river steamers you 'ave licensed pilots who set big salaries hand their reputation is lost if they should go to sleep and Wreck the boat. With us hits dill'erent. The common sailors 'ave to do the steering, and if wo w as to put 'em in nice warm 'ounes they'd be pound asleep in about ten minutes, and the ship would be left to steer 'erself. You see they avent hany big saleries at stake, but they can't sleep very well standin' hup w'en its blowin' or raiiiin'." And so we learned something there. Ever since 1 first saw an ocean vessel I had wondered at, that same thing, and though it looks a little tough on the poor sailors I reckon it must be neces sary to leave them at the mercy of the elements to insure watchfulness. Once we went upon a schooner that had just arrived with a cargo of oranges. It would have made your mouth water to look into that hold. We that is, Fred) gave a sailor who wore a red shirt, had a bail face on him and a smile that badly matched it a dimu, and he loaded us down with oranges, and how ve did paralyze oranges for a little while After we had explored all the nooks and corners of the city and become well acquainted with every jack-tar on the piers we bade adieu to Mobile and skip ped down to Scrantou, across the Mis sissippi line. Scianton is a typical gull const town a straggling, scattered vil lage among evergreens. The ground upon winch it is built is as level as a board, nearly, and the Fsealanha river flows by it on the way to l'asi agonla Bay, which is not more than two milts away. After dinner Fred and I walked out to "the beach," a mile and a half from our hotel. Tho walk was very pleasant, over a little country road ; through a forest of evergreen growing in swampy ground, and lined with wild shrubs and dwarf palmettos. When we reached the beach we walked out upon ever so long a pier it must have ex tended nearly half a mile into the shallow waters of the bay. The bay was just beautiful, a softly heaving expanse of blueish green, and far out against the light horizon we saw the sails of passing barks, the saiiless ringing of vessels at anchor, taking or discharging cargoes by means of "schooner-lighters," and the dim outlines of pulling steamers, their smoke extending and sinking in dull clouds far behind them. And we both had a sudden attack of "ocean fever." I sat on the end of tbe pier and looked across toward some island (I had in tended to remember the name; it was so romantic) and warbled the half-forgotten airs of "A Life on the Ocean Wave," "My Willie's on the Dark Blue Sea," "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep," und all the nautical ballads I could remember, while Fred hummed "A Hundred Fathoms Deep"and "Com mitted to tho Heep,"and recited "The Wreck of the Hesperus" and "He Never Smiled Again." It was jolly, I tell you. A little yawl was t,ied to the pier. I wanted to unhitch it and take a ride, but Fred was rather afraid the owner might object. But, we climbed down the rustic ladder to the water and climb ed into the boat, and sat long and pen sive in the little craft, as it rocked gen tly upon the cute little wavelets, real salt wavelets. I said that I kinder wished the old thing would break loose and lloat oil' somewhere and leave us on a desert island like Bobinson Crusoe, and when he asked why I told him that it would give me such an excellent op portunity to gather material for a nauti cal novel that I contemplated writing for the IIioiilam) News largest circu lation in the county SI. 50 a year inva riably in advance now is the time to got up clubs come early and avoid the rush. I think he said "Yes '."' with an upward inflection and tried to pick up a handful of salt water. We were hav ing such a pie-nie that w e didn't notice a little sail boat and a yawl coming to ward us until they were within half a mile to our leeward. I have forgotten whether tVie sail lioat was a yawl or a yacht. It was something or other and had a main-sail and a jib-boom. I am certain about that. The row-boat had four colored men in it and the sail boat contained three others am! an elderly white man, with a pleasant looking face and gray whi.-kers. We interviewed the united crews while the white man walk ed up to the shore to get some mail and found that they had just left a lumber schooner we could see her quite plain ly out a little way, and we were very much surprised to learn that she w as fifteen miles away. The white gentle man, so the oarsmen told us, was the schooner's captain, and they were all going to sail up to Seranton by tho river. That was just the trip that we wanted, and still remembering what I had al ways heard of sea-captains I asked him very gently if he would like the honor 01 our company on the proposed voyage. I shall hereafter have a dill'erent idea of sea-captains. lie seemed overjoyed at the prospect. At least he readily as sented and said that if the wind was fa vorable he'd show us "some sailing." So we clambered into his pretty little boat, the "crew" unfastened her line, the jib-boom was run up, and though there was scarcely a breeze stirring the pier began to slowly slide away from us, as it were, and we were on the ocean blue with only a frail boat and ten or twelve feet of water between us and the "bed of the deep." The captain was extreme ly tillable and talkative, telling us stories and giving us "pointers" about nautical terms, and he said he was sorry we hadn't a better breeze. But poor as was the wind we soon circled around a point, left the white sails out of sight behind the trees, and glided up the calm bosom of the Fscataw ha. I steered part of the way. As the man for the rudder I am a gratifying success. I think I can steer as good lib the man who invented steer ing. 1 just sat there and operated that tiller like a thoroughbred, and under my skillful guidance the fragile bark passed through the open draw, cut a symmetrical circle in the ripples and sped like a thing of life up to a post on the shore between t wo fragrant oyster packing houses, and we made fast and sprang shore, after a charming voyage of three miles. Then we bade our pleasant friend and his dusky crew good-day and proceeded to the Hotel l'.lalack, w here we (I did, at least) put ourselves on the outside of several dozen oysters in vari ous forms of culinary perfection. Oys ter fishing and opening is a great indus try there, and is, indeed, the principal occupation of the residents. The next morning we gathered our selves together and journeyed to Biloii, another town just like Seranton, only a little more so. On the way dow n we cross the river and ride over miles and miles oi trestle work. Only a few miles west of Seranton we passed near the UIUTIll'I.AClL OF AliMlUAl. J A Kit At . IT, "the Salamander." You may be sur prised to hear that the greatest naval ollieer who figured in the great civil war was of tsoulbern birtl 1 w as surprised to A is hear it. lint, circumstances were au spicuous for making the boy Farragut a mariner. He was born and raised where there was plenty of water. I im agine that he used to sail toy ships on the "raging" ponds that infest the re gion of w hich he was a native, and I wonder if he didn't play Admiral and command his ship when lie was a little hit of a youngster. Twoof his nephews, formerly residents of Seranton, are now cadets at the U. S. Naval Academy at nnapolis. Then we continue on over the low marshy coast land, pass two or three little stations and Ocean Springs, which quite a little summer resort, then we cross tbe glittering Black Bay of Biloxi, and find ourselves at our destination. Biloxi is a very peculiar sort of place. The shopkeepers all have funny foreign names mostly French ami Italian ami the w hole town is shaded by magnificent live oaks. This is another big oyster packing point. During our visit they retailed at the beach at 70 cents perber rel with the shells on. If you think I didn't eat oysters while there, why, you don't know me, that's all. A short distance from Biloxi, on our way to New Orleans, we passed Beau-voir, THE HOME OF JEFF DAVIS. which is situated midway between the former place anil a little station, by courtesy Mississippi City. Tho train darted past the l.ttle hamlet without stopping, ami, although so near it, we did not get tt) see the old man's retreat, which is hid from the gaze of the trav eler by the magnificent grove of patri archal live oaks by which it is surround ed. The building is a white mansion of the olden Southern times, with pillared porches and latticed shutters, and there the great leader of the Confederacy is passing the last years oi a brilliant life that was wrecked by mistakes. From Biloxi we go down parallel with the coast, cross Bay St. Louis, Chef Men taur, and lots of other waters with French names, and about noon reach the eastern suburbs oi the Crescent City, of which more anon.

It was visited by a terrible cyclone April -JTth, l.s-sl, w hich destroyed the greater part of the town, but with commendable en ergy and enterprise the people have re built their village.
