FROM NEW YORK TO NAPLES
BY ELD Z T TVILLIAMS
Editor of the News
VjVeiTOofce our lust notes from
New York on the 9th iusfc On
the 10th at 1 oolock the Spartan
Prince our steamer sounded her
signal for moving out Two small
launch boats laid hold on her one
in front and one at her side and
tuged her out of port into sea As
the great iron steamer began to
move out and I realized we were
diaaonnected from land and that
it would be at least ten days be
fore we would see land again I
had some very serious thoughts to
press upon me Would we in the
providence of our Heavenly Fath
er be permitted to return to this
our native land again But I
could not afford to dwell on such
thoughts long So as we glided
out in the bay the Statue of Lib
erty attracted our attention which
is situated on Bedloes Island one
mile out in the bay It is the
largest statue in the world It
was presented to the United States
by the French nation and was
made by the French artist Barth
roldi The pedestal is about 151
feet and the statue 153 feet mak
ing a total of 304 feet in height
In a short time our vessel be
gan to increase her speed and the
cities of New York and Brooklyn
began to grow dim in the distance
and soon we were out of sight of
laud
We have 42 cabin passengers
17 females and 25 males and we
were glad to find them all conge
nial companions with very few ex
ceptions Several States are rep
resented as well as some foreign
nations The officers of the yes
sel are mostly English as the ship
is owned by an English Company
Our vessel is not a large one
her capacity is only 5000 tons
She is 351 feet long has two large
boilers and one tripple compound
engine It is made of steel and
is strong wellrigged I was real
ly surprised at the security one
feels on the sea One can not re
alize this until he has experienced
it But we had been dreading sea
sickness ever since we contemplat
ed the voyage Every thing went
well until Sunday morningas the
the passengers began to file out on
deck to view the new scenery I
could see some pale faces now and
then and a moving up to the rail
ing and casting their bread upon
the waters I felt it would be my
time next for I felt a fainty weak
ness about the stomach So by
by breakfast time quite a number
were sick and retired to their
rooms I did not retire from the
scene but threw up a few times
took a little breakfast and was a
little sick two days but hardly
missed a meal McGarvey and
Crossfield were not sick at all
Duncan was sick only about one
day and all congratulate our
selves that we were so favored
The weather was real cool Sun
day afternoon and there has been
some rain for several days Mon
day and Tuesday we had a light
gale all the time and the vessel
was very much disturbed but we
have had no real storms and all
told have had fair sailing and all
well andable to eat all we can get
On the second Sunday of the
voyage wo passed a sail vessel in
full rig thefirst one we had ever
seen She was making slow time
as the wind was headward had
been out 135 days On Monday
morning the 19th inst we were
called out earlier than usual to
see the first of the group of the
Azores Islands Fayal and Pico
This was a delightful Change for
it was thefirst land we had beheld
for nine days Several towns and
villages could be seen on the coast
Fayal has a population of 24OQO
and is inn good state 6f cultiva
tionPico is the larger of the
two and is a very considerable
mountain called by the name Qf
the island It is 7013 feet high
On its summit is a beautiful well
shaped peak 800 feet high and
lQo1tBverymuchiIikea large well
formed haystack The summit
iWftfr covered ewifhw0now p and two
clod with utiful silvep lin
ing were nestling over it on each
side 1 Jeaving an opening so we

itself majestically toward the
heavensSeveral
Several of the passengers who
had their cameras got some splen
did views of this mountain and
some of its towns and scenery On
Tuesday morning about daylight
we came in sight of another group
of the Azores Islands by the name
of St Nlckalls and near the coast
we could see a beautiful city
stretching along its borders for
two miles Ponta Delgada is the
city and its population is 18000
to 20000 This group of islands
nine in number belong to Portu
gue and the inhabitants are most
ly Portugues Our vessel anchor
ed near the port and most all the
passengers went a shore to spend
a few hours as the vessel rested
from 7a m to 2 p m The na
tives look very much like the Ital
ians in size and color They are
a very industrious frugal people
They are expert gardeners The
climate is temperate and the av
erage range of the murcury is 54
to 88 degrees They raise a varie
ty of fruits oranges lemons dates
figs etc Corn and wheat and all
kinds of garden vegetables do well
i We saw some very stange sights in
that little city Oxen working
single to shafts in carts and drays
Hero we saw our first packsaddle
donkeys such as I suppose we will
have more experience with later
on The women are homely and
wear some strange costumes They
have a hood capote that is a
kind of combination garment an
swering for headdress and skirt
for the whole body Our artist
Mr Crossfield got a set on some
for pictures which we hope to
bring home with us
Wemet our American Consul
and his wife there who showed us
a great deal of courtesy They
have some very fine cathedrals
parks floral gardens and they
= have some extensive public build
ings They are a very kindheart
ed people and are jjappy and
contented in their various pursuits
of life
lifeThe
The Azores group consisting of
nine islands was discovered by
some Portugue navigators in 1432
to 1452 The islands have their
origin from a volcanic eruption
This is evident from the fact that
craters are clearly visible extinct
volcanoes lava and gassy emana
tions On the St Nickalls the
bills rise up in regular order in
well formed peaks and are fertile
to the very top and are cultivated
in various kinds of fruits and veg
etables The population of the
entire group is 270000
On the morning of the 24th in
stant we were awakened at 5
oclock to see the historic Gibral
tar but it was so dark at that
hour we could only see the out
line of the great rock It is a
great promontory three miles in
length from Naples 3i miles in
width 7 miles in circumference
and its height is 1439 feet above
the level of the sea It is lime
stone and marbel It is the most
formidable fort in the world It
guards the passage from the Medi
terranean to the Atlantic and it
has been held by the English Gov
ernment since 1705 Prior to that
date it was held for a long period
by Spain It is on the coast of
Spain and it is a wonder she ever
permitted it to be taken But jn
1705 When the Spanish felt con
fident that it was impregnable
they kept only 250 men to guard
it England seeing her change
seized her opportunity and cap i
tured it France Spain aud oth
er nations have united since to
take it and some famous naval
battles have been fought there
England i1l holds it and keepsit
guarded with 5000 soldiers and
1000 pieces of artillery
When we sailed out of the At
lantic into the Mediterranean we
could hardly realize we were on
historic waters All day we could
see some mountain ranges on the
coast tSpainCape Gate was
the nearest point we touched which
was not over five miles W fc

before we reached the Mediterran

three days we have sailed on the

We are two days behind time
and will arrive at Naples the 27th
inst instead of the J 15th
Today the 26th we are passing
in sight of the island of Sardinia
We have not been able to learn
any thing definitely of area or
population It belongs to Italy
The next land we sight will be
at the end of our first voyage
Napleswhich we hope to reach
in 24 hours There we will give
the finishing touch to this letter
now too long
March 27th We are now in
sight of Mt Vesuvius and will
land in two hours It is raining
and a high gale is blowing We
are all glad we are so near our first
destination Though the voyage
has been rather pleasant yet sev
enteen days is a long voyage on

Famine in India
The horrors of this famine bid fair
to break the record of all the ages for
ghastly suffering and death The suf
ferers who can lift a shovel are put on
relief works on railways and other Im
provements at the rate of 250000 per
week at present This leaves the mul
titudes of those who are too nearly
famished for work to starve and die
in awful agony The very streets in
the vicinity of some relief stations are
so filled with the famishing that they
are impassable for thoroughfares At
this rate of a quarter of a million a
week taken upon the government re
lief works the resources of the Empire
will soon be exhausted and adults and
children will be left to perish by my
riads The outlook is appalling The
country has not yet recovered from the
famine of 97 and the vast populace
are impoverished by their sufferings in
the same which millions of them have
barely survived so that this stroke
that is spreading death and desolation
will make rapid work with the masses
Many of these adult idolaters may de
serve the divine judgments but the
innocent children shall we not quick
ly rescue them for Christ Who will
undertake the support of one of these
rescued famine orphans at only 20 a
year Better than gold willbe the
blessing of the Lord upon that house
