A Breakrast in Sau Juan Caplstrnno. One of tho most intereatiDg features of travel in out-oMhe-way places in Cali fornia is tbe meetiug of the people who have drifted there on strango currents from all parts of the world. The more out-oMhe-way the place, the eurer one is to fiud in it soraebody out of the common line a man or a woman whose history, if written, would be a romance of many chaptera. The conntry aeems to be a natnral city of refuge for all kinds of waifg from all sorta of wrecks. Many of its little vil lagea are themBelrea waifa from wrecks of old-time prosperitiea and splendora ; the wildernesa hua putly reclaimed tbem; haa fluug out ita niantle of stillness over their atreeta and aeems tiraidly lending back to tbem aome of ita charins on trust, aa it- were to see if they can be faithful to the epiritof its qaiet and peace. Such an one ia Sau Juan Capistrano, the site of the all-famoua Franciscan mlBsion of tbat namo. A haudful of poor Mexi cans and still poorer Indians, perhapa three or four hnndred aouls all told, are all that are liviug there now. The crum bling ruina of the old misaion churoh are in barmony with the look on every face in the yillage. To thiuk of rebuilding it would seem an abnormal fancy, a silly ln terference with the courae of nature. As well ask the old beggars who lie sunning themaelvea at every corner to be born over agaln. SbeUa pile npyear after yearon the nntrodden aanda of its harbor, in which ahipa used to oome and go, but where no all haa been seen for jears, Tbe wild muatard growa twenty feot bigh every Buminer, spreading its canopiea of gold over the faat-fadlng linea of the paths where aailora, shippera and traders used to olimb up and down the cliffa. Tbe apell of the old traditions of the plaoe ia enhanced by a perpetually sunny aky and balmy air. It waa one of the cbolcest apota which the wise Franclscana aeleoted on the Califoraia ooaat. Two or throo hundred yeara hence it wlllno donbt bo again alivo and splendid ; wlth ships coming and going, nnd men and women tasing tuoir oase and pieaBure, sucn aa Amerioa nowhoro knowa to-day. A i'olish Jow. who Ued ycars ago irom hia homo in a littlo oppresaod vlllage on the confinea of Russla, haa drifted into the place and is keeping ita inn an inn which is, llke most of tho rural inns of California, four-fiftha shop and one tonth posUofTice. Tho romafning tonth of the cstablishmont ia not avery bad inn. as countrv inns co in California. Ita lodging rooms are above the shop reached by an outstde ataircasoj a aemi-paruuonea nost of chambers, with whitc-washed board cellings, and a furore of decoration that makea ono blink on first enterlng tho rooms, as if kaleldoscopes were at battle there. Featber work, worated work, pampaa plumes, leathor work, vases, stat- uettes, cnromoa, pnotograpns, iitnograpns, Kottingham lace, crochetted work, shell work, strnw work, bead work, cones, dried leaves and grasses are a few of the adorn ments of this homo of Polish eziles. A piano, also a guitar and an accordion, and pilea of muaic better music, too, than ono would have lookcd for, arguing from the chromos and the leather work. At abreakfast in this littlo inn, one sunny morning last summer, it chanced that the word " Siborla " was mentioned, and a question raised as to the treatment of exilos there. " I spent two years in Siberia," said a quiet-voiced man opposite me ; " but I saw very little of the exiles. They are kept out of sight as much as possible." ,rI can tell you a little ahtory," ex claimed the landlord, who waa passing through the room and halted at the sound of the word " Siberia." " I haf eeen men, and women, too, of my people, driven in tbe streeta to go to Siberia. Weknow very well about Siberia in my town. Our count, he vas there seven years in a mine. I tell you tho shtory how our count came home from Siberia. It ish not long." " Oh, pray tell it to us," we exclaimed. Hia face darkened. " I could tell many shtoriea, which haf no joy in the end of tbem like this shtory," he said. "I like to forget them if I could ; but I cannot. He waa our count, sent to tbe minea for hia life. It was all for political he waa sent. He waa a very good man ; his fathor and hia f ather be fore him haf been count in our village. Ile owned the village, 'moat all. After he was seven years in Siberia, in the dark mine, they fmd out he was innocent. That was whnt he told them in the be ginning: and all his friends told it, too; but nobody wonld listen. So the em peror, he pardoned him, and brought him to St. Petersburg to get his free papers. But they did not gif him ono cent. They only said, ' Now you can go,' and our count was too proud to say, ' I haf no money to pay to go home.' And he haf no clothes but clotbes he had in Siberia. So he did walk home all the way from St. Petersburg, and beg all what he ate on the road ; and at each place he haf to ahow hia free papera to let him go through ; then Bverybody would gif food. " When he reached our town, ho was so ragged, his beard all covered with dirt, not washed his face, tbe Burgomaster's servant tbought he must be a beggar tramp, and wanted to lock him up. " ' No,' he says, 'I am no beggar. I must Bee the Burgomaster bimself.' " ' You cannot see the Burgamaster himself ; he is in the garden.' "Then the Burgomaster'a wife she came, and she said to give the poor old man something to eat. " Nn t T flm nn ripirrrftr. T ntn nnf - - - " " hungry. I must see the Burgomaster.' " At last came the Burgomaater, very angry, and he Baid : " ' You are not too old to work. Yon go to work. It ia shame for you to beg.' "'I am no beggar. Will you please look at these papers ?' " And when tbe Burgomaster took the papers he fell on hia kneea on the ground, and he shook; he was readytodie; he thought what the count would do to him ; and he pulled bis wife down on her kuees, too, to pray to iorgive. "'That is all right,' aaid our Count. ' You say not one word till night.' " Then he went on to hia castle ; his wife was there ; Bhe had never gone away all the seven years be was in the mines. " The porter would not let him in the castle. I must see the Countess,' he aaid. " 1 You cannot see the Countess.' " ' But I will see the Countess. I have nrgent businesa to see the Countess.' " Then the porter raised his whip to strike him. "'Do not striko; if you do, you are dead in one half hour.' Then the porter was afraid ; he did not know what beggar could speak like that, and he called the dogs to drive him away. But the doga knew the Count, and instead of to drive him away they began to lick his hand; and while the porter thinks it was tbo devil to niake the dogs lick him, becauae they were lierce dogs, the Count got by, and got inaido the castle; and tten to the next servant that stood he said : " ' I must see the countess ;' and thia servant was afraid, to see such a ragged beggar had got past the porter at the gate, and he was going to take him at the throat, but the count aaid : " ' If you touch me, you are dead in one half-hour. Go tell tbo countess I bring her news from her husband." " Then the countess came, and she thought ho must be a crazy beggar; and Bhestretched out her handa togive money to him, and spake so gentle to tell him to go away. " 1 What I do you not know your Ignacia any more ?' he said. Then she fell down in dead awoon before his feet. And the next day they came through the streets in their carriage, so close to the aido of each otber, all in beautiful clothes, aud he had hold of her haud in bis ; and all the people were orying on the street. But be looked like one old man aixty years old ; and he waa not forty. When he went away he waa a bandsome young man with black hair; and it had turued to be white as snow. It did turn in the first year. Oh I we know well about Si beria in our town. I haf seen our count many tiraea; he haf pick me up aud carry me on hia shoulder when I waa no bigger than this," aud he laid hia band on tbe head of hia little nine-year-old boy who had listened with dilating eyea to bis fatber's story. " Ach I but we know about Siberia in our town," and he atrode out of the room, ovidently not wiahing to speak or to hear another word on tbe subjeot. A ailenco fell on the whole group at the breakfast-table. Tbe atory had the ring of a ballad, and ita tale had carried each one there into a realm eitbor ot memory or imagination, wbero apeeoh waa lmpoaaime. xua exue a atory ot ex lle. bad struck broad cbords ln every breast. Tbe qulet-voicod man who had opened tbe conversation by aaying tbat he had spent two years in faiberia, we after ward laarned bad been formerly an offleer ln tho Unlted Statea navy. Tho still quietor man who sat on his left had been n famous naval commander in the south' ern confederaoy all through our civil war, and over ainco that had lived in dreamy seoluaion in San Juan Caplstrano. We ouraolvos wore wanderers, not wholly of our own pleasure, belng drlvon out by acourges of snow and cold to go in searcn of warmth and aun. " After all," wo aaid, " tho word oxlle ' covera wido ground. One need not be born thosubject of a tyrannical monarchy to undorstand it. That man is fortunato who llves hla llfo out without ever loarn ing in hla own experionce something of ita bltternoas." . J7., in Christian Union. Judnh P. Ilciijainln on tho Itolrcat. Bnrton N. Ilarriaon of tho New York bar, who was Jtfferson Davls' private sec retary, describes in the November Cenlury the retreat from Richmond, and "Tho Capture of Jefferson Davis." Facta of bistorical interest and humoroua anecdotos ahound in tho paper. The now famous Mr. Benjamln's good humor during the retreat is described as followa: "Wo moved southward on, I think, tho day fol lowing tho council of war hold with Gen eral Johnston, atarting from Greensboro in tbe afternoon. The presldent, those of us wno constitutod bis immedtato atali, and aomo members of the cabinet, were mounted. Othora rode in ambu- lances, army wagons, or such convoyances as oiuid be got. Almost at tbe last rain ute I was told I must provido an ambu lanco for Mr. Judah P. Beojamin, secro tary of atate. His figure waa not well adapted for protracted riding, and ho had flrmly announced that be ahould not mount a horse until obliged to. " By good fortune, I waa able to secure an ambulanco; but the horsea were old and broken down, of a dirty gray color, and with spots like fly-bites all over them and the harness waa not good. There was no choice, however, and into tbat am bulanco got Mr. lienjamin, General Sam nel CooDer fadiutant creneral. nnd rank. ing ofRcer oi the whole army), Mr. Georee T " ' f vr ll n i! i. uaviti (ul xuiui uiuuuua, atiorney-gen' eral), and Mr. Julea St. Martin, Benja min'8 brother-in-law. " Bv the time they got off, the front of our column had been some time in mo- tion, and the president had ridden down the road. Heavy rains had recently fallen, the earth waa satnrated with water, the eoil was a aticky red clay, the mud waa awful, and tbe road, in places, almost impracticable. The wheeled vehiclea could move but slowly ; and it waa only by sometimes tnrning into the fields and baving bt. Martm and tbe attorney-gen eral get out to help tbo horsea with an occasional fence-rail under the axles, that their party got along at all so difiicult was the road because of the mud, and bo formidable wore the holes made during tue wmter, and deepened by tbe artillery ana neavy wagona tbat day. 1 was near them from timo to time, and rendered what assistance I could. Darkness came on after awbile, aud nearly or quite every body in the column passed ahead of tbat ambulanco. iiaving been kept latterlv in tbe rear by something detainintr me, I ob- served, as 1 rode lorward, tbe tilted hind part of an ambulance stuck in the mud in tbe middle of the road, and recotrmzed the voices inside, as I drew rein for a mo- ment to cbuckle at tbeir raisfortunes. The horses were blowing like two rusty fog horns ; Benjamin was scolding the driver lor not going on; tbat ittnctuarv waa 8toically insisting they conld proceed no whit furtber, because the horsea were broken down ; and General Cooper (laitntm old gentieman, be bad been in Richmond throughout onr war, and had not known since the Seminole war what it is to 'rongh it') was grnmbhng about the lmpudence of subordinate officer (' only a brigadier-gen erai, sir'). it seems tbe onender bad thrust himself into the seat in another ambulance drawn by good horsea, that was mtended tor tbe adiutant-ereneral Getting alongside, I could see the front wheels were over the hubs in a hole : the hind legs of the horsea were in the sarne hole, up to tho hocka ; and the feet of the driver bung down almost into the mud, Mud and water were deep all around them, and their plight waa pitiful in deedl They plucked up their spirits only when I offered to get somebody to pull themxut. Riding forward, I found an artillery camp, where some of the men volunteered to go back with horses and hanl the ambulance up the hill ; and, re turning to them again, I could see from afar the occasional bright glow of Benja min a cbeerlul cigar. Wuile tbe otbera of the party were perfectly sileut. Benia min's silvery voice was preaently heard as ne rbytnmically lntoned, lor tbeir cora fort, verse after verse of Tennyson's ode on tbo death ot tbe dufee of Welungton The laureate would have enioyed the situation could he have heard the appre ciative rendering of his noble poem un der tbe circumstances ot tbat moment 1 ' It was a memorablo day for Newport wnen rresident Artnur caugbt an embtv pound basa. He wore a blue flannel suit and, according to an eve-witness. sat on tbe string piece of the West Island pier, with his legs hanging over. After more tban an hour of inaction there waa a sud den tug at the line. Arouaed from leth argy, the President waa yet calm. A basa weighing eigbty pounda ia not deemed by fUhermen so hard to bandle aa a fifteeu pound salmon or a seven-pound trout, and yet ne presents conaiuerabie diuiculty ibis basa might have known that he would eventually be landed, and that it was no uae to swim seaward ; but he did it, aud so vigorously that there waa no uae in trying to stop him ' before the line waa nearly all let out. Then he became fatigued, and the President reeled him in for thirty or forty feet. There the fish resiated awhilo, getting tired out by it, and then suffered himself to be slowly hauled nearly to the pier. The reat re newed hia vim, and hesbot away, making the reel rattle aa the line spun out.
