left to impart the news of its where

"As I said before the cargo was

tbe 'receiver.' Soon thereafter the
captain died; but no sooner bad
he been lowered down to his last

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
tenance and the teartnl expression
of hrs eyes, I telt that in this far
away land I had, at least, one sym

"'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
"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

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

lence a feeling of rage and indig

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

pectedly. Folding me to his arms
and planting tender, passionate

tears of joy streamed from his eyes.

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
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
" 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.

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.

people in this country about the

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
" '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
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.
'"Oh! my dear husband!' ex-

tVll I could do was to follow.
My father I discovered was uot at
all excited over the matter. 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

"Ah! indeed,' retorted the
claimed Mrs. Forrest, and she sank
down iu a swoon.'
"I ran and got cold water and
applied to her head ; she recovered.
slipped n little plank aside. 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
" 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.

to see that "Vox" has entered

to Ocean Springs' call for help have

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

yellow tever sunerers had a r:ght
to the funds, and glad tire we to

them as they were intended. Mauy

of tho funds will be used for the

The lteccnt Elections.
With elections on the 8th perish
ed the last hope ot the republicans
to reverse the democratic coutrol
of tho next congress. ith a net
loss of four and probably six mem
bers iu Ohio and Indiana, added to
the loss ot one in Oregon, one in
erinout and two in Maine, with
the single gain of one Colorado to
offset the account, democratic su
premacy iu both the senate aud
house seems to be assured on the
4th of March next,
"Captain, please give me a
light" said a private at camp.
"Certainly, my good man, but it
we were in the regular iirnty, such
a liberty would not be allowable."
"Is that so !" said the private; and
then suggested "but if we were
in the regular army you wouldn't
be captain, perhaps."
Ij)t Week's Elections-
On the 8th inst., elections wiu-e'
held iu four States-, which will de
termine the political complexion of
the next house ot representatives.
The result will assure' democratic
ascendency after the 4tii of March
next, iu bot h branches of congress,
for the first tune in twenty years.
These elections were held in Ohio,
Indiana, Iowa and West Virginia.
These four States have forty-five
representatives- 111 the preseut
