" lie uttered these words, as if addressing Rome one older tbau than myself. 'I am,' he continued, 'going to deposit all my money in this box, Jimmie, and should anything hap. pen to me, there will be home one left to impart the news of its where abouts to my wife.' "As I said before the cargo was sold and the money deposited in tbe 'receiver.' Soon thereafter the captain died; but no sooner bad he been lowered down to his last resting plaee thau the Jirst mate, the succeeding officer, made a rash on me for the suspecMMl treasure, i told him I knew not where it was, but I did. I was determined though to keep it a secret from any one nntil I could see Mrs. Forrest. He beat aud punished me most cruelly, but to no effect. When he thought that my life was about gone lie took rue to the Mariue bobpital in bini! hang and great himll" was excitement tenance and the teartnl expression of hrs eyes, I telt that in this far away land I had, at least, one sym pathizing friend. "'Say, my little boy, what is that you have on your neck T' "'As bespoke these words he wheeled at the door aud came back to my bedside. "'Ah! yes, I see,' said be. My little boy wouldn't you like to go home !' "I have no home, said I, 'but 1 would like to go back to England. "'Well,' responded this good man, 'you shall go back; that mate treated you badly, didn't he V " lie said nothing more to me in regard to my bad treatment, but 1 could discern in his countenance, as young as I was, a fixed purpose a determination to have that mate sutler the just penalty of the law. In two or three days after this conversation transpired I was able to get up and walk around in my room, alter winch the doctor would come and take me out riding in his buggy in the evening. I soon recovered my strength under sut'li Kind treatment, ami three weeks from the time of my enter ing the hospital 1 was able to leave for England. The doctor gave me two letters one from Lloyd's agent in Ccnstautiiinple to bis agent at (ibraltar; the other contain ed tn v tree passage on board the steamship bound for that place. After Caiit. Forrest died the mate, as I said before, took charge ot tho ship receiving a ready return cargo to England sailed in a few tlavs nearly thre weekB before I did but with ad verse winds he was unable to cope with the speed of the steamer I was on. I landed safely at Gibral ter witli my letters; delivered the one directed to the agent there was transferred to another steamer (with t lie second pass and accom panying letter) bound to England. 1 landed home, or rather at M., where I first shipped nine mouths before; reported at theoflic.e of my consignee, lhe agent read the let ter 1 gave him in a breathless si lence a feeling of rage and indig nation tl nulled bischeek. Ah ! my little boy, you've had a tough time of it. but we'll lix that man tor his rascality.' "Home again, or near there thought I to myself as 1 wended my way down the streets toward my sister's. I had not gone far lie fore tuv father and I met very unex pectedly. Folding me to his arms and planting tender, passionate uiiscs oil !v forehead while the j tears of joy streamed from his eyes. " 'You have come iiomri t9 stay with your papa. Now, my son, haven't you!' " I purposely gave him an eva sive answer, because it would have been a negative one had 1 replied directly to his question. I gave him a full account ot my travels, uud their attendant details, and especially 111 regard to the punish ment inflicted ou me by the mate. '"Ere this soul shall waft itself through eternal space, shall 1 see this outrage avenged V CUAITKII 3. A few days had passed away, and while I was walking down the street with my father two police men stepped up to us aud patted me on the shoulder saying " 'Hang cried out, prevailed. " The purpose of my arrest was accomplished. The culprit con confessed his guilt and was quickly transported to Australia to serve at bard labor for twenty years. " Days and weeks rolled on. A childless widow a christian lady, mourning for one whom she loved dearer than life mourning for one a Christian husband sleeping bpneath the sod Mobamed trod. The old ship was hauled and knocked to pieces, her race was run, and as people passed to and fro they would remark that is tbe old ship the little sailor boy was beaten almost to death on by tbe mate, to make him tell wheret'apt. Forrest had hiddeu his money. Vague were the speculations and theories as to its whereabouts. Prospectors aud adventurers be lieved as much in the existeneo of such Bonanza as do some of the people in this country about the buried treasures of the pirate Latitte. One day as I was sitting near tue OKI snip looking at her with i feeling of pity, her torn up condi lion, and iniiiKing ot the many happy romps I had on her when Capt. rorrest was alive, and musing as to the probable finding out and disposition ot the bidde treasure, some one brushed by me lady in deep mourning she 111 advertently turned her head around. 1 recognized in her my Irieud Mrs. ionest who had just returned to M. to settle up her bus band's business affairs. I greeted her; she did not know me, for she was yet ignorant of the fact that I was alive, but pointing to the ol ship I asked her if she knew the little boy that used to play on that old ship so much. SI10 drew me close to her and cried as thougl her heart would break. After tears of joy and sorrow had commingled with each other, and rolled on to stamp their impress on the tablets of memory, we turned to talking about tho circumstances attending the captain's death aud burial and of my own misfortune. " Airs rorrest,' said I, 'did vou get your money T "'What money, Jimmie! " Why the money Capt. Forrest made oil his cargo in Constantino pie. " 'No, Jimmie, I did not 1 I have heard nothing as to what went with the proceeds ot the sale of his cargo. I set it down that what he did receive was gobbled up or else secured in such away that I will never see anything of it.' " You mistake, Mrs. Forrest, I told you about the mate's beating mo nearly to death, to make me tell him where the captain had hidden his money. I never told you at the time that I was ignorant of the plaee it was concealed, for I am not ; I once knew where it was, and it strikes me that itstdl rests where the captain placed it. I see no signs ot the cabin being disturb ed by the workmen iu that particu lar place. ent to the old ship wbere she lay on the beach. The sun had now buried himself beneath a sea of criniisoii and twilight had come to place the seal of eternity on an other departing day. All was si lence and repose as we ascended the every day trodden way of play children and prospectors to the cabin ot the old ship. We went in.

March ing me down the street apiece they came to a dead halt at the steps of a huge building where a large crowd ot people had assembled, it seemed, over something ot high importance. With trembling limbs and dowucast eyes they marched me through the crowded audience to the front of the presiding judge. I beheld the mate, my persecutor, iu irons. A fiendish and brutal look was depicted on bis coalite uauce. "'Oh! you thought you had killed me, did you t said I to btui impet iously. "'Yes," said be aud I am sorry I didn't !

I knew exactly where the 'receiver' wits, and sure enough there were rhe doubloons, resting where Capt. Forrest had placed them. Mrs. Forrest was from that day consid ered well off. She awarded me highly for my faithfulness to her interests. CIIAPTRR 4. " Ten years passed away, during that time 'I applied mine heart to know and to search, and to seek out wisdom aud the reason ot things, and to know the wickedness of fol ly, even of foolishness and mad ness.' I had traversed the seas and oceans of the globe, with no espe cial object in view. That spirit which declared its independence at the outset of my career, still main tained its soveignty ; it was the lever power ot my pilgrimage; it carried me through scenes aud trials calculated to deface the moral faculties of tho soul. I still wore the medal placed on my neck by father ten years before, und his parting words together with with tbe paternal counsel and precepts bequeathed to me by Cap'- Forrest were still enshrined iu my lieart. Virtuous precepts and examples inculcated into our coinpotdtiou in early life seldom, it ever, disap pear entirely, even though we tread tbe path nigh unto the brink of desolation. They are like diamonds bidden and obscured by the turbid stream running over them, but are made bright and lucid by crystal waters. Thus, iu early youth, when we are told from the lips ot those we love that there are certain rules to be observed, certain lines to fol low in all our conduct and actions, Riiih teachings will ever bold :t snpremacy iu our moral constitu tion ; whatever storms may beset us, whatever may be the magnitude of sin and vice, their banner floats high above such battlements fanned by that breeze of reverence and sanctity, 'which fadeth not away.' Ten years! ah! how many changes can take place within that time. 1 returned home to England from the United Statvawith a little fortune. I went to see my father, his head was bending low, time aud the cares of life had sprinkled his head with silver threads. My little sister, for whom I had ven tured so much, was now grown and married with twoehildren Jimmie and Kebeeca. Iu seeing them 1 re alized thi' fact that nature is muta ble that tbe roses of to day must fade, that those of to-morrow may bloom in beauty. My stepmother had undergone a complete change of character. She had embraced the Christian religion, aii'l that ter rible (lemon-like visage which otiee held high carnival in her every look and feature had departed, and in its stead could be descried the emotions andoutgushingsof a pure and noble heart. Yes, the purify ing elements of some great power were written on her brow a power I could not comprehend. 'Uow unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out."' Thus ended the tale of Jimmie M. Political Points. Reply to "Vox.' Ocean frniKOS, Oct. 14, 178. Editor Democrat Star: Iu your last edition we noticed an article by " Vox," 111 reply to " Liberty," and we are truly worry to see that "Vox" has entered upon a controversy. We must confess, as a mere looker-on, that we cannot see why "Vox" should be so angry. As w e see it, Mr. Ed itor, this is the question to settle Did the executive committee send the funds "Vox" speaks of beore or after "labertys" article was written f If it. was sent after. mark you well, Air. "vox," "lab erty" has not spoken falsely or uu kindly ot your town. As proof that he must be right, the Honorable members ot your so ciety have reconsidered the dispo sal ot their ttinds, and in answer to Ocean Springs' call for help have aided her with loving and gener ous hands. Now, not intending one word of disparagement to the residents of your little to vn,for there are many dear to the writer there, we would say "Liberty" was right. It tbe funds were raised with tbe impres sion und understanding that they were to be used for the benefit of yellow fever sufferers, then only yellow tever sunerers had a r:ght to the funds, and glad tire we to see that generous hearts have used them as they were intended. Mauy a sufferer will bless the hands that in their dire want has fed and clothed them, and as a greater part of tho funds will be used for the poor of my church, on their behalf earnestly thank the generous donors, aud pray that for their hanty llod will bless them.
