Vhn.t Dick nUlie Found at Ctimrch
I'd been to church. I'm not a man tosall
under false colori.and.pretend I wont reg'Iar,
for I didn't, but when A lad has been on a
three jean cruise, and through no end o'
f;ales. and come home safe and sound at last,
t's no more than right be should report him
self at headquarters. Some don't; but I had
a good old mother once, and the taught me
a great deal that I've forgotten now. (more
shame to me,) besides some things that I re
member. So, feeling that the Lord's hand
had been in mj oomlng home alive, I went
to where they sty he comes oftenest. and
that's to church.
It was a grand sort of place, but I had my
'longshore togs on, and my new silver watch,
and a collar as white as old sail and fn I
walked, bold as brass. It was evening, about
seven bells, and tbe glims were all alight.
Chaplain, he was therein the wheel-house,
and all the passengers aboard. I sailed up
the straits, looking for a seat) but, Lord lore
ye ' they all had state rooms, with the doors
shut, and though I said once or twice,
"above up, smpmato," nary a iaaoi'em
budged an Inch.
"Look-a-hero, my man," says I to a fel
low acting as convoy to a lot of ladies lest
come in, "my opinion isyouneeu a mission
ary. I've been among the benighted heathen,
in parts where they're nigh as black as your
coat, and though they eat each other now
and then, them that's com erted never tries
to keep the others out in the cold when
there's a meeting. Chaplain wouldn't hear
Well, tbe cnap lurnea up his nose at me,
and said something about " being under no
obligation to find seats for strangers,' and I
set sail lor tno aoor, wnen ne pints, ana
looks, and, bless her pretty heart ' there was
a lady holding her door open, and kind o'
bowin', as much as to say. "Cast anchor
hero and woloome."
So I made my best bow, and went In.
There warn't another soul but us two there,
and I felt sheepish, I can tell you. I warn't
two and twenty then, and was afore the mast
yet. And she was such a beauty .like
a little yacht with streamers flying, and
holiday sailing ahead If she'd turned up
her nose at mo I'd not have wondered.
But she didn't, she gave me a book with
blue vehet on tho binding to sing out of,
and smiled when she did It. And bless ye, I
forgot what the chaplain was saying, looking
at her. I don't know where she got her
eyes, unless a bit of summer sky was used to
make 'em. for they wore just as bluo. Well.
when It wns all over, such a time as I had
treading on the women ' long petticoats, and
being scowled at, coming out' I waa making
neauwny uown street, wnen a saw a leiiow
half soas over make up to a lass and put his
arm about ber waist ana try to kiss ner. bbe
screamed, but before she could scream twlco
I was alongsido her. "Hands off, you lub
bor" says I, and I laid him sprawling.
And then I saw the lass was tho very one
I'd boen looking at all the evening the only

Well, she pointed to a reg'Iar first-class
sort of place, all white marble, that I knew
tn bn H finnan Jersev'fl. And Cannon Jersev
was my cappen. I'd sailed with him for
years .'prentice at first, hand afterward.
And. Lord loie ye' I felt almost friehtened
to think of sitting and walking alongside bis
daughter. 1 maue my best scrape ana bow,
and somehow stammered out about giving
my best respects to tbe cappen, and the honor
ot navingsaneu uer.
Then says she, "Papa must thank you hltn
self.'1 And there, true as tho sea sarpent,
was Cannon Jersey at the parlor port-hole.
She told him what had happened, and he
said ' 'My man.you'vo done your duty, ' ' and
made mo come in and have a class of wine.
He called It wlno. look ye, but I'te mv
doubts of It, for it was as sour as swipes, and
fitted like soda water when the cork came

However, cappen's wine Is not to be sneezed
at by foremsat hands, and I took it.

I'd been In one o' them daguerreotype ma

I did love that girl There's no denying

was captain of a merchantman, and that's
how I came by It.
Well, I went on loving and hoping, and we
took another voyage, and yet another; and I
got on and was promoted, and by-and-by I
found myself second mate, and then she was
not spliced yet. I was six-end. twenty, and
had a little money put by, and thoughts of
her had kept me from too much grog and
company that might ha1 done me harm, and
says I, one day, "I'll have her yet before I
go to Davy Jones' looker."
Off an on we'd met, and I'd bowed; and
now I was, as you may say, an officer, I was
bolder. I tried to Improve; I read and prac
ticed land talk, and I don't mind owning (ns
I've promised a true yarn) that I hired a
Frenchman to teach me manners and parle
vooing. He couldn't dolt. What he called
the langwy Frenehy wouldn't be larnt, and
as for manners, that waa wuss. So one day
he says :
"Monsheer, you sail make von Terra grand
sattolr, but te dance and le langwy French
you sail not know If you live so long as von
hundred." Says I, "You're right, my
hearty; salt I was born and bred, and salt
I'll die." So we parted company.
Well, shipmates, for all that I didn't give
up thoughts of Miss Eva Jersey, and being
second mate, I foand chances after a while
to talk to her, and I was a handsome young
fellow then wanlty, you'll say, but It's
troth and she took a shine to me. When I
knew it I was beside myself with Joy.
Secret we were a bit about U, as all lovers
will be, and the cappen was a man to be
afraid of. But one day I went to him In his
state -room wait a bit his study at home,
and says I, "Cappen, I've a word to say to
Says he, "Well, my man."
Now this wasn't Just the thing for a socond
mate Ho might havo said, "Well, sir."
However, he'd known me a cabin boy.
I couldn't go on at first, but by-and by I
managed to stumble through It. "I loved
his daughter, and wanted him to give her to
me." inat was my yarn, and, Jjoraioveyo'
the sauall It raised, Cappon roso up and
looked at me.
"Have you been drinking, my man9" says
"No. carmen " envi I.
'Then you're mad," says ho.
"Not yet mad." says I.
He pointed to the door.

Ladles mar read this, or I'd write down
what he said to me. Talk about oaths after
"I don't deferve this, sir," says I.
"You deserve a cowhidinc If I had
cat-o'-nine tails bandy I'd lay It over your

and you a common sailor."
Second mate now, sir," says I.
"Second fiddlestick's end," says he.
"And, sir, she she likes me," said I
Then cappen kicked mo out. Mind ye, he
was sixty-five, oj I'd not have let htm do it "
Next thing, I heard Eva was sent away to
an aunt's, and the nlceer that waited on the
Cappen ashore fetched me a note bidding me
good by, and saying that she must obey her
father. That waa duty. Let man and woman
do their duty. I did mine, for you seo I'd
engaged with Cappen Jersey for a new voy
age, and the time was come; and though it
went agin me, I couldn't desort though I
said "It's the lost voyage we'll have together
my hearty." Said It to myself, you know.
I did my duty. I worked hard. But all
the light was gone out o' my sky. I was in
tbe fog, with mv coin nasi lost. Life warn't
nothing to me, and soon I had a chance for
For there came to us such a gale as never
blow before, when wo were not far from the
Oold Coast, and after It had blown a bit It
seemed to me that the Cappen lost his sonses
He might have sated the ship, but be was
obstinate, and so she went upon a rock and
split to pieces. We took to the boats in tbe
storm. I never saw any of my messmates
again. Wo might as well have been afloat
In egg shells Tho first thing I knew after
knowing nothing, was lying In burning sand
upon my face, and when I cleared my eyes
I saw I'd been washed ashore. Two men lay
alongsido o' me I turned the first over; It
was the cook, Teter ' He was stone dead I
looked at the noxt; It was the Cappen. Yes,
'twas poor old Cappen Jersey, and he warn't
dead, for he groaned when I touched him
Says I, "What cheer, Cappen'"
Says he, "I shan't live to see my girl again,
"Tell that to the marines '"says I. "We're
on tho main land, I fancy, and, niggers or
not, I neor knew men I was afraid ot. Wo 11
get home yet, Cappen."
"You may," says he. " I must stay here,
my leg Is broken."
So It was. The old hero had been bruised
and beaten nearly to death besides, though
ho bore it so well, and I found myself pining
my eyes as I looked at him, but I was a bit
of a surgeon, and I set the limb and band
aged It bark for splints, my shirt for band
ages and then (that was a hard job) I took
poor Peter's olothes and made a kind of bed

"No," says I, "I mean to do tho best I

" I wish " he began. Then ho stopped,

laid low. I had thought we'd bury him at

him home on a litter to die there, but before
he went'he hold out his hand to me.

Says ho, "Cappen Jersey has sent for you

I knew it must come, but my heart sank
like the lead In deep water. I set sail for
tho house, leading the lad quite out of sight,
and got thero In a few minutes. The nigger
took me In, and there was Cappen In bed and
chaplain alongside, and Eva crying as If ber

says to me.
"Blalze, time Is short for me, I must
speak fast. You love my clrl still?"
Says I, "I havn't words to tell how dear
she is to me."
Then the Cappen took her little hand, and
put it In mine, and says to the chaplain.
"Let me see it done before I die."
And before I knew what had happened I
was called on to answer would I take this
woman to be my wedded wife7 and I had

The 22d of July, 1661, was the darkest day

whelmed by the far truer but hideous tidings
of most unlooked-for roverso and overwhelm

loatea but routea, witn a loss oi an its ma
terial and half Its numbers, and its wretched
remnants wero rushing, report said, like
frightened sheep, across tbe rotomac, a
wretched mob a demoralized, weaponless

wealth of small arms, munitions, and pro

It was In tho mid afternoon of that day of
unparalleled and immeasurable horror,whilo
the shrouded heavens and pouring skies at

woe, that John Cochrane now General Coch
rane appeared at the Tribune office, where
he had for some years been an infrequent
visitor Instantly abruptly he gave us
to understand that no matter what ho
might have said at Richmond three months
before he was now resolved to stand by his
fearfully imperiled country. "There is but
one way remaining to us," said John Coch
rane to this writer, "If the Union is to be
upheld, wo must proclaim emancipation, and
summon the slaves from the service of rebels
to the salvation of their country,"
For some years from that hour John Coch
rane was faithful to the conviction thus
avowed He led to the field a regiment which
had boen raised for him, and fought with it.

of freodom for all, and calling every loyal

after It had been thought bett that ho should
retire from tho mtliltary service, his voice
and vcte were still glren to the party whose
triumphs were nut hailed with cheors at
Hlchmond nor alone the lines of the rebel
armies. Henco he was, two years since,
nominated and elected Attorney uenerai by
the Union party of our State.
But a fresh election annroachos. and he is
not renominated perhaps because no dele
gate to the Union Convention happened to
think of It; possibly, because rumors were
afloat that he was already plowing with all
mannor of questionable heifers Though he
had not yet been slimed over preparatory to
swallowing by John Van Buren, It was in
stlnctivoly felt that he was getting ready to
go down easy Not being offered a fresh
nomination on our side, and not having
