Manv Years aeo. when I was so small a boy as hardly to recollect it now my brother and i j i i e .1. a u. myseit were piaccu uu uuuru umc ut mo uu Lawrence River steamers as cabin-boys and waiters, with a view to become pilots) when we niAar That vu nearlv fiflv Tears aso : and boats were not ntted up in the style they are now, nor were good pilots a thing to be found every day. We had run lip and down several times, when one morning about ten o'clock, wet slopped at Brockville to take on board, as usual, a Government pilot to guide us down the river. 1 ' ' ' It was lata in tho season, and we had a strong wind the night before, leaving the river rough, ana our usual puoi naa nnru wu ki kep-thbo.-in-tta- pioper-traee, while it brought us into Brockville two hoars later than the usual time. The clouds overhead still looked cold, and the wind, blew Iresn ana strong, when, making all possible haste, we again put out of the harbor, and were soon hmindinir on our wav. Throng-bout the morn ing I noticed an anxious look on the Cap tain's face, which bespoke hig uneasiness about the final termination of our journey. We hail a onod manv nassOneers on board, and although, we usually reached Montreal by four o'clock in the afternoon, we should be delaved till si, if not later. About ten miles this airla of Lnchine a Mora of rain com- monnorl which rendered it almost impossible to guide the boat at all while the rapids of. that name, the most terrific in the whole river, were yet to be, papeed. - The pilot was one of the best on the route, ran a man oi iHmuwi temper, with a peculiar dogged look.- Be tween him and the ordinary boat pilot there existed an old grudge, which once or twice led to blows, when tney came m conwci mm uh nther. That momiiiaT. when passing one rS tliB hiahpr falls, thev stood toeetber at the wheel, when, owing to the strong current oi the water, and tbe almost exnausieu evrcngm of him who had guided us all the night, one nrAe nf the wheel alinned from his hands, and nearly caused an accident of a pretty serious nature. " This annoyed his companion, and hard words passed between them, since which time a sullen silence naa oeen preser. . , . Whn ahnnt two miles above the Lachine rapids some of the rigging aloft gave way, and tho niirtit nllnt tnnnnted the nDDer deck with a ladder and attempted to make it fast . The, wind blew fiercely, and while exerting all his strength to stay the mischief, he lost his hold and Tell, the ladder eoming down directlv upon the head of our Government aid, wound ing him pretty severely- Notnausing to loon .1 ikA miachief. he aeir.ed the unfortunate man, and,' with almost gnperhumart strength, lifted' him above the boat railing. ;. ineomer ijuiuaijr guessed nis meaning, aim winuiug u around the neck of liis companion, they fell tosrether in the boiling flood below., - we low- h Ufa boats as auieklr as possible. ropes were thrown-out and every eftor put .t. a. .u ,l,.Mt.li '(m vain '.

Just as rrenzy naa oegnn to calm a own into sober, earnest preparation for the doom which awaited them, there oame out at the state room a fair young creature, over wboee bead scarce sixteen sumsaers had passed. She Was of medium hight, and fair as the lily of her Northern clime. She donned a dress of Slain, black slntf, while the coat of one of the eceased pilots was buttoned tigbly. around her slight form. Her face was ashy pale as she mounted the stairway; and with her hair disheveled by the wind, she exclaimed, in a voice which rung clear as the notes of a bugle above the storm; ' ' ' ' " : ' "I know something of this Lachine rapid, and will use my best endeavors to guide you, although we hare everything of wind and water against us. ' Let two of yon who are the strongest and most self-possessed stand by me at the wheel, while the rest invoke His aid who ever stilleth the tempest, to guard our life-laden: bark safely through the troubled waters, : As if in" derision of her matchless courage, the mad waves dashed higher, while the thun der pealed a .loud defiance to her words. With palled ' face and hps compressed she took her station at the wheel, while two power ful men stood by to aid her as far as possible. With a firm hand she raised the glass and swept the scene before her, then bidding them to have courage, the boat entered'upon its fearful course as if conscious of the hand that guided its destiny.' Her orders were given in clear, loud tones, while she stood (proudly erect, her eyes brightened into a darker blue, till one would have tanciea ner tne mine spirit of the storm. I he water aosnen against, the side of the boat, crowning her fair nead with e-litterino- drons : vet she stood unbend ing, while not an eye in all that group but gazid .with mingled owe and confidence upon that delicate form. -Once again the -wheel slipped from the grasp of bim-who held it, but a lair, jeweled hand arrestea its progress, bdu staid the destruction which would otherwise have followed it swerve from duty.

A fearful tragedy occurred in the hospital last Friday. At about ten- o clock the night previous, an Irishman, large, stout, and ues- oeratelV crazy, crawica tnrouen me e.iwu- ter in his room in one of tho rear two-story buildings, and reached the roof, where he es tablished himself, and bade defiance to all the world. He was soon discovered, and every pffnrt that the inirenuitv of the superintend- on! and hia associates could invent was made to induce him to come down, but without avail. A hole was cut in the roof, but with nieeea -of slate which he tore from the roof, the madman beat back all who attempted to approach him. The roor is quite steep, out tho nrazv man would run all over it even along the eaves, without fear and with perfect impunity. Wo sone person couia possiuiy ac complish what he did. He declared he never would come down, and would kill any one who should come npon the roof. It was therefore an impossibility to get him safely, and it would be certain death for any one to go upon the roof and grapple 'with him. He was perfect "master of the situation." n. A watch Was kept upon him during the night and the next fore noon. It was thought that Father Sullivan, the Catholic priest who had previously visited him and seemed to have considerable influ ence over hiuij might induce him to. come, down, and ha waa aent for at Holvoke, but be ing sick he could not attend, and sent one of bis assistants, but betore nearnveu, we mail man at about eleven o'clock was seized with a fit, to which he was . subject, while sitting beside a chimney, and curling nn,. ronea on, striking on tbe solid hard-pan below, breaking one arm and injuring himself internally, so that be lived only about an hour. In his dis abled condition, eveh) he fought desperately, and it was with difficulty ho was secured. The ventilator through which he escaped is oval shaped, about eight by twelve inches, and ex tended from near the top of the wal,horizon tally about ten inches, and then up to- the roof. This hole he enlarged by knocking out the brick. ' He entered the ventilator by turn ing his bed1 up against the Wa'. fiorlhamp ton JVatt. Gazetti. ,i ').,!',. Corrwpondenee of Ihe if; T.

William Bothstein's account of the burning of the William Nelson I have obtained as fol lows: .v .-:,. ' ' ' "-.i ,', The William Nelson was a first claw pack et ship of New, York, commanded by. Captain Smith. She left Antwerp on the 2d of June, and Flushing on the 4th, for New Yorky with five hundred and fifty souls on board. -. On the voyage there had been two births, sixteen r I J 1 1. I p cases oi lever, ana six - ueaws, maniiia ire nimtit fumications of the shin necessary. ...The morning of the. 2tith, Rothstein de scended into' the ship where tbe sick were ly ing, and found the air so infected as to make fumigation immediately necessary to insure the safety of -the passengers.. Captain Smith gave Mr. Rothstein charge of clenrsing the ship, which is done by dipping 1 heated irons into tar ana swinging wem wrougu we nir. During this process one of the men employed in fumigating let a red hot iron fall into the pail of tar, which instantly blazed up as high as the ceiling. .: Rothstein, who stood behind the men, directing them, caught up a matrass and flung it and himself on the pail of blazing tar. with the idea of smothering 'the flame, when it exploded, and threw him and the mat rass backward ten teet ine men now oncom ing , alarmed, - threw upon it straw : beds and other combustible substances, which burned like torches.; In ten minutes the flames burst up the hntchway, and were running up the mainmast ana rigging line ncry serpenm. Thn anerifi ' now was indescribable. Th tinmttntr nut In the middle of the shin, divided it into two' parts, separating friends and families; and driving them to the extreme ends .of the. burning vessel . Some became frantic, and leaped. into the sea. Others flew up and down the deck, wrapped in the flames of their. clothes., rending ; the air with their shrieks,: '.Strong, men .clenched in' deadly combat for the possession of a life preserver or. a spay,: and ghastly mon. and women with infants lashed to them,wang. themselves oaitr irto tha ahm hv rones, to whiflh thet elunsrsln. til (he re burned tbem in two and let the shf forcra down into a watery grave. -,M . n.u , ; About one hundred persons had ' gathared an thAhowanrit whan UnT, foremast fell, killing many 'and hurling the rst i into the eeait When the fire first broke out ten sailors soiled the Itng boat, oanable of holding sixty or sev enty persons, ftna rowen on. , xuej we pre vailed npon, to-return ajud take in twenty-eev- en passengers., , : j i - m-ow .i-r Captain Smith, the two mates, Rothstein, nnn an manv of the anilora as they could con trol, lowered the three small boats (none of tbem seaworthy,) end piuced in tnem nom stein's wife;and four children, and the rest of the Nelson s passengers picked np by the l favettel ' As the boats were rowed away from tbe burning, ship, some thickens, to escape the flames, flew after them and alighted on I the' shoulder of the pessertgersV A fat 'pig swam np to one of the boata d indicated a desire to be saved.

" When Cap Smith and Rothstein could do no more.for the sufferers, they leaped into the sea and swam away, more to escape the cries of those they could not aid than to .save their own lives. After having been in the water about two hours they were picked up by one of the boats. i ; ,:.. . -b 1 0RM8TIKIK0 OF A SHIPWRECKED CHILD. . On Wednesdar. June 28. at 3 P. M., the passengers of the Lafayette assembled on deck to witness the baptism of the son of Wm. Rothstein, only a few weeks old. A prayer book and a silver cup, containing water, were placed upon a table,, and the little fellow was brought forward to receive, the prenomens of Lafayette Eeoande, the name of the ship and captain who saved him from an early grave. President King, of Columbus College, New York, officiated. , ., . . , A SUBSCRIPTION.
