! t a P ii C B D a; Mi Jo i I cor put ton Bat laoi i Intel MORNING APPEAL. NATl'RD.i y Jl'LV 1. DANIEL WEBSTER. One clay in 1844 I heard Mr. Webster speak ing from a stand on the Canton R,ice Course at Baltimore. He had just returned from the English Mission, where he had been courted and feted by the foremost men of the King tlom. He was then in the very prime of life; his roice was clear and ringing, and his mas nve sentences, clothed in pure saxon phrase, fell on the ear in an unbroken torrent of un studied eloquence. Dan, at that time, pos sessed " A combination, and a form, indeed, where every god did seem to set his seal, to give the world assurrance of a man." How changed from all this when 1 saw him last. Ten years later I was returning from a visit to Baltimore, and when I entered the cars at Camden Street Station there was but one va cant seat, that in front, facing the passen gers, and I sierd it of course. Directly fac ing me sat aman, wearing a dark colored straw hat with broad brim, and a dusty black al- aca sack coat, with hw arm in a sling a broad black ribbon. Ilia head was bent for ward, his chin resting on his breast. Some noise and loud words in the rear end of the ear attracted his attention, and when he raised his head and looked around, with his dark expressive eyes shaded by heavy black eyebrows, I at once recognized the "godlike Dan;" but what a wreck ! The massive fore head and tie eye were still there, but his dark skin was shrivelled, his ckeeks hollow, and his hand nervous and feeble;" he was go ing home to die; for he never returned from Marshfield, and Washington which had been for so many years, the scene of his great tri umphs, the arena where he had contended iu many a hard fought battle, and where he had drained to. the dres the cup of. social enjoy ment, was to hear no more his burning words, nor enjoy his great conversational powers. Daniel Webster Was on his way from the haunts of brilliant men and lovely women, among whom he was all his life a favorite, and passing Jnto the unknown, i was accom panied by a little son, with whora the great statesman immediately made friends, and whom he mounted at once on his knee, and to whomfT he -sung several verses of the old song of the " Indian hunter," It is. pleasant to recall the clear deep voice of the great man, whose eloquence had so often held vast as semblies entranced, and elicited the applause of the foremost men of both hemispheres, singing to a little child in simple pathos, the quaint old song. I enjoyed a long conversa tion with luui, in which he was eloquent on the pleasure he anticipated in trout fishing in his own streams at Marshfield. He had but a few days before been thrown from a buggy near Mount Vernon, and his arm was badly injured.. His colored servant, who stood on the platform' outside, produced regularly every half hour, his brandy flask, and in explan ation he said to me : " You may think it strange, Bir that I have to use a stimulant bo often, but the truth is, I have been all my life condemned to late hours and larga quantities of wine, and now my system is so completely wrecked that .unless I use a stiumulaut reg ularly I become a mere dish cloct. ' Th phrase made an impression that is not easily forgotten.- Ishook hands with the good man at the station at Philadelphia, and never saw him again. What a boon to the country it would be if he could stand in his place in the Senate to-day, and wither with glance and word the politic. il cobblers who are a sore and a curse in the land Butcher. Hulks Pstuik, tha Grace Darliuir of the Shetland Islands, has just died at Kingborn She was a native of Unst, and during a great gale, May 26, 1850, when, in sight of the is landers, the last of the home-seeking fishing boats was capsized, two of its occupants were drowned and the other two, clinging to the overturned boat, were drifting out with the tide, she and her sister-in-law, her father, a one-armed man of seventy, steering, put off in a small punt and effected the rescue which none on shore would venture to attempt, Helen Patrie, who received the Royal Institu tion's medal for this feat, was a small woman little used to boats. Two years later she saved three lives: under precisely similar cir cumstances; then she went over to the main land and ended her days as a domestic servant. "She was a simple-minded, straight-forward, strietly pious woman." Tbb case of a deaf-mute cow is reported by a Russian veterinary surgeon. A cow, twelve years old, of Alvara breed, belonging to a Rus sian nobleman, never showed sighs of hearing nor bellowed.1 : Seeing the other cows bellow, she tried to imitate them by stretching her neck and head, and opening her mouth, but she could not produos any sound. The sense of vision in this cow was found to be unusu ally well developed. Dangers of, th 8 Peep. From September 1st, 1878, to June 11th, 1870, 45 grain-laden vessels sailing from New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Boston, Portland and Norfolk, were abandoned at sea or never heard from. The loss on vessels and cargoes was nearly three-million dollars. Tie nam of lives lost was about 450.

Those who heard George Thatcher, of the Tony Pastor troupe, give the amusing absurd ity of ' The villain still pursued her," w ill need no apology from us for reproducing it in the columns of the Mokiju Appeal. Lik other geniuses, 1 hatcher has his imitators, but they are as inferior to the original .is the spurious article always is to the genuine: " 1 11 sing you a song about a young girl a 37oung girl who was bora of poor but lamest parents honest parents and her parents be lieved that honesty was the best policeman. As this young girl advanced in years as I be lieve all young girls do one day while she was perambulating the borders of a beautiful forest in search of blackberries, she was bit ten by a little bird a little bird a little bird had bitten her. As she went through the woods with one hand in the other to stop the crimson tide of life that -flowed from the wound where the little bird had bitten her had bitten her she met with the villain of the song, whose face was immediately repul sive to her and she said, "Get thee g'ne, villain, get the gone!" 'Twas a little narrow road through the woods, and I think a cow was the contractor. She was a country girl and did not fear villains. " But the villain still pursued her. "She went home and acquainted her father and mother of the fact, aud her father and mother told her not to notice it, but one day while she was in the barn thrashing (she was a farmer's daughter) she was in the barn thrashing thrashing her little brother in the barn who should come in bur. the very same viila'n, and onoe more she told him to get thee gone, villain, but the villain didn't get thee gone worth a cent. So she repaired to the friendly protection of her domestic domicile, and insisted iipon her pa and ui.t leaving; the spot at once, and her father agreed to move back to the city and enter into his old avoca tion, which was that of a stone-cutter. He built himself a large stone-yard and was doing a prosperous business till the all devastating element tire came along and burnt his stone- yard to the ground. And the villain still pursued her. " Then she persuaded her mother to move to a hard town small by and open a boarding house. Her ma did so, and on account of "the particular class of custom w hich her ma had to cater for in her capacity as boarding house mistress, she had her knives and forks chained fast to the table, and they had no n.tpkins no naps ins ; but instead of napkmg there was a large bushy Newfoundland dog, who went around the table at regular intervals, and as the boarders were inclined to use a napkin they clutched the dog. The touch went by seniority, the oldest boarders had the first clutch, and the more muscular boarders grabbed the dog and swiped him. 'Twas a verv economical idea, for the dog performed his duty every day through the week, and on Sunday the dog was washed and the boarders had soup. " And the villain still pursued her. " Finally she moved off to the wild Western prairie, surrounded by trees and fonests, and thought she was secured from the eyes of the world, and she felt in love with the man of her choice, and everything was passing alon,' smoothly till one day she was in the house practicing a new and difficult piece on her sewing-machine, when wh should enter but the sd rue villain, and he said : ' Long have I sought thee ; At length I have caught tiite ; Ha 'ha! ha! ha! ha I ha! " ' I have asked you repeatedly to marry me . .Now w ilt I " And she was just going to wilt when in rushes the man of her choice.

" Virtue reigns supreme. "Now she is married to the man of her choice, and he is in San Francisco looking for a divorce, so be kind enough (to the orchestra) to allow your dulcet strains to be wafted on the evening breeze onco more. The Sink of IIcmbolut River. The Sil prr &tite contains the following in relation to the outlet of the Humboldt: W, . . . , . -, . , I e have been informed by Big Meadows farmers, who have resided on the Lower Hum boldt for years, that the lake commonly called the Sink of the Humboldt is now al most,, if not entirely dry. Persona who re sided near the water's edge a few years ago are irom three to four miles from water now, and only a am ill stream runs through what was formerly the center of the lake to the out let at the Oneida mill. Thousands of acres of the finest and richest land, which have here tofore been submerged, are now dry enough to cultivate. No one seems at all anxious to oc cupy or claim the land, as the opinion is gen eral that when there is a heavy fall of snow in the winter the lake will spread out to its for mer dimensions in the Spring;. Those who entertaiueu tne opinion that tne lake is lrained by a subterranean outlet can now sat isfy themselves that such is not the f.ict by in specting the bottom. The drying up of the ake is attributed to the lit; lit snow rill in the mountains at the head of the Humboldt last winter, and the numerous dims which have been built in the river at different points from Battle Mountain to Bi' Meadows, by which he waters have been diverted from their nat ural channels to the bottom lands for irrigat ing purposes. Philadelphia. July 18. The new brig Shasta of New York, from Port-au Paix, St. Domingo, bound to Chester, Pa., arrived iu great distress twelve miles below this city yesterday. Of nine men on board seven were owu with the yellow fever. Four deaths oc curred, the captain being among the number. The Leader says that Fayette King and the j wotnan who went away with him, arrived in Eureka on Monday evening and are still stop ping there. If there is any justice in this world misfortune ought to pursue them to the bitter end. A new rout from Lake Tahoe t.o Calavera Bii? Trees has iust been opened. The dis tance is sixty-seven miles, passing through lovely and picturesque country, iiieluuin Hermit and other valleys. Six railroads are no pushing their line across Dakota, and more new settlers are go ing into Dakota than any otlu r section of the West. The St. Paul '"Pioneer Press estimate that the farmers of Minnesota will realize $40 000,000 from their wheat crop the present year. President Hayes will spend the month of September at his home in Fremont, Ohio, to avoid the malaria of Washington. " 1 he traffic iu eggs in this country is est ima ted to aggregate $180,000,000 annually. Hens are prosperity. A blind pacer called Sleepy Tom made the best time ou record at Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday. ' The new city directory of New York con tains 8,000 more names than the one of last year. The population of Mexico is given at 0,C8 7 000. . NEW TO-DAY. DISSOLUTION OF CO-PARTNERSHIP.
