Monday, the lltb of February, was a dark, rainy day in the South Atlantic ()r.p:in 1 he whnnnpr Carrie LOHff. of Stockton, Me., on her voyage from Buenos A vres to New lork, had reached a point just south of the equa tor and about two hundred miles from the Brazilian coast. Nothing was to be seen in any direction, when all at once the lookout snouted out, "A sail !" At the same instant a husky crv was heard bv the seamen on the deck. All looked in the direction whence the cry came, and laughed at the lookout for his announcement that ail was in si"ht. All that was to be seen was an uneven mass or baniboo, not ten feet souare. in the mid- die f wnich a half-naked black man was kneeling upon a box. The only sail visible was a shirt discol ored with sea water, which was flying from a slender bamboo pole. Beside the man was a rusty kerosene can : in his nana a ruuc nauuie wmcn he used to support his feeble body as he raised himself to shout for help. The raft was bo narrow and so low in the water that every slight wave rolled over it from stem to stern. The mau shouted incessantly, but now and then the sound died away in his throat and the hearers only knew that he had shouted by the convulsive action of auu u.u. A Imot- vena ntrornri trnm tn I TorriA . Inz and made its wav toward the raft. The man continued to shout, although rescue was so nigh. His cnes were intelligible, but it could be distinguished that he used no English. As the boat neared the raft one 01 iae 831 ors P ! on ein w"n ft lfc . of despair. "What did you do that for?" the mate asked. The offending sailor made no reply, but pointed underneath the raft. Following his finger, the others saw three or tour immense sharks swim ming leisurely there. Now and tben 4 one would thrust its nose between the light bamboos as if to pry them apart. More than once the open mouth of one could be seen raising herself over the top of the raft within a yard of the occupant's ieet. "When this happened the man on the raft ceased to shout and seemed to become dumb with ter Again approaching the raft, the res cuer3 this titne secured it to the boat and transferred its single passenger to their own craft. No sooner had he touched the ships deck than his strength, sprung from excite- 1 . 1 - . . if mem anu me insuuci 01 scu preservation, abandoned him aud he fell unconscious. As he lay on the deck it could be seen that the sores on his body had been made by the continued wetting with salt water. Crystals of the salt were visible on the raw edges of the wounds. The body was ema ciated, and the bones at the joints seemed as if about to thrust them selves through the skin. The ordinary black hue of the skin was turned to a dirty drab. His tongue, swollen to unnatural size, hung half out of his mouth, and the wonder was that he could have uttered a single sound. After he was aroused, he could only gasp inarticulate moans and point to his month for water It was nearly a week before his ap petite, and with it his strength, re turned so that he could be questioned. There was not a Portuguese scholar on board tne Carrie k. JLong, although one of the crew knew a little Spanish. It was more by gesture than by word of mouth that he told his story. He said that his name was Manuel Fran cisco, and that he had been at sea ten davs when rescued. Originally, there were three on the raft, but one had been washed overboard and devoured by sharks before his eyes before they were two days out. 1 he second died from exhaustion on the fourth day. He threw his body to the sharks, thinking in that way to cause them to quit following the raft, but after they had torn his comrade to fragments they only followed him the more in tently. He dared not sleep for fear of walking off the raft into their open jaws. Water gave out on the sixth day; and thirst was added to the loss of sleep. His only food was bread, which had become musty from long confinement in the kerosene can, and the eating of which only added to his thirst without satisfying his hunger. His sufferings became so intense that he was about to cast himself to the sharks when the Carrie E. Long hove in sight. Where did he come from and what was he doing on the raft? Francisco failed to answer this question satisfac torily. He insisted that he had origi nally sailed from the Brazilian coast. but took advantage of his questioner's ignorance of the language to avoid explaining whv he had put to sea on so frail a craft. The contents of a black bottle found on the raft in a a measure answered the question, and accounted tor his unwillingness to be more definite. In it was a magistrate's commitment of a felon, presumably fcrancisco, to eight years penal servi tude for some small theft. The date o the commitment showed that the prisoner had served three years. The Brazilian penal island .of Fernando Noronha, situated three degrees below tne equator and about 400 miles from the main coast, was within a few hun dred miles from where Francisco was nicked up, and it was conjectured that he had escaped from there. This con jecture was confirmed when the Carrie fcu Long arrived at Matanzas and the customs officer carte on board. As soon as the accents of the Spanish tongue leu on his ear, J rancisco ran I J a J m oeiow ana evincea great rear 01 re capture. On hearing his story and reading the commitment, the Brazilian agent at that port wanted to bold Francisco until the Government of Fernando Noronha had been communicated with. But Captain Park put his foot down at this and declared that Francisco should not be removed from the vessel. The agent did not press his claim aud Francisco arrived in this city on the Carrie Long on Monday night. On the voyage he made himself useful as a seaman. The sailors called him Mon day, because he was rescued on that day. When the writer saw him vesterdav he saw a stout, healthy man, nothing in his smiling face to indicate the hor rors he had passed through. He is a thorough black, with the crisp, curl ing hair peculiar to the inhabitants of hot countries. He seems intelligent, aud rather ashamed that he can speak no language but what he calls "Bra- zilian." JV. 1 . Siuu 18 IT THUS That John Richardson. Deserted His Wife in the Old Country. The Mother Says 80, and Crosses the Ocean to See Her Chiodren. The Kansas City Journal in its issue of Wednesday morning published a short item concerning the arrival in Leavenworth of two small children from Kansas city who had gone their with the fond expectation of meeting their mother, who had come all the way from England to see them. It seems that Richardson, the father of the children, formerly lived in Leaven worth, and the mother wrote to them and said she would be in that city on a certain day. 1 he reason of her com ing all these miles to see her own children is told by the Leven worth Times. It is the story of the children. 'Their father's name was Haigh alia Richardson. He was an Englishman, aud lived at Barnesley in the mother country. Having become seized with the American fever, that the United States was the land of promise, he con cluded to emigrate, and made arrange ment accordingly. He emigrated, bringiug with him three children, the two now here in this city, and one, be tween these two, Albert, who died at Valley Falls, and is now buried there, but the woman who accompanied him was not his wife, but another woman, a resident of Barnesley, named 'ollv u lute. They crossed the ocean together as man and wife, and have been living together as such ever since. The year of their leaving Lngland was not ascertained, but it must have been some time back, as all the chil dren were very young when they left their island home. After their arrival in this country everything went along smoothly and happily; the deserted wife was forgotten, ber name was not of the HOUSEHOLD WORLDS, and there seemed to be no way by wheh she would ever discover the whereabouts of he recreant lord. Four thousand miles of water and fifteen hundred miles of land separated her and her family, and there was no prospect that the mother would ever nave tne privilege 01 again ciasping her little ones to her bosom. But there is a divinity which shapes our ends, aud the pnny efforts of mankind to thwart its workings ars fruitless: There was while Haigh, alio Richardson, was in business here, a young man in his employ who knew of Richardson's perfidy, and not long ag3 he took it into his head to go back to his native laud, luchardsou, how ever, before the young man's depart ure whether through the influence ot bribes or friendship, fear or love is not known, induced him to promise that le would sav nothiug about Richard son's whereabouts, or of the fact that he was LIVinQ WITH ANOTHER WOMAN. This promise the young man faith- ully kept, and when he got back to Barnsiey, the wronged wife was none the wiser for his coming. But one day the young man fell sick, and in pite of the careful and watchful atten- lauce of skilled physicians, the malady obtained the mastery and proved fatal. Before dying, however, he made known the secret which he had kept heretofore locked within his breast, and the eyes of the deserted wife were opened. Richardson had, in the mean-time, moved from Leven worth to Kansas City, and to that place the wife wrote a letter to her boy. John, enclosing one also to her husband. Some time after the letter was returned to her, but she had rea son to believe that Richardson knew that she was aware of his whereabouts. Through her boy, the mother LEARNED OF A FRIEND of the children in Kansas City, Mrs. Bossier, whose parents, Shanton by name, lived at the corner of Lawrence avenue and Cherokee street, in Leav enworth. She shortly afterward wrote to John from Philadelphia, that she would arrive in Leavenworth on Wednesday." A Journrl reporter called upon Mr. Richardson yesterday afternoon at his place ot residence on Mam street, and found the central figure of this story to be a pleasant mannered English man, inclined to drop his h's after the most orthodox fashion. 'Have you seen the account in the Leavenworth limes concerning your two children? "I have, and it is a tissue of false hoods." "How so; aren't the children vonrs?" "They are mine and I must pro tec them as long as 1 live. "Who is this woman who chums be their mother?" to "They were stolen from my house in the middle of the night by a woman." "Nevermind about the children now. Who is this woman?" "They belong to me, and I wiU have the care of theai. "Tben this woman claiming to be their mother has some sort of clai upc them?" "Well, now; I will tell vou. She) was their mother in the old country. "Why did you leave her behind when you came to America?" "She was unfaithful to me, and not fit to take care of my children." "You came with a woman who you said wss your wife. "The one I lelt behind deceiv ed me. I ran away from home and married her when but seventeen years old. My parents even locked up my clothes, but that did not hinder me. After all, however, I was made a fool of." "Were you divorced from her?" "Not in England." "WeYeyou in this country?" "Well, that makes no difference now; I am not going to show my bauds.'7 "You say you are not divorced from your wife, then? "All this trouble has been brought about by a meddlesome woman, and she will suffer for it." "If you nere divorced, surely there . is no reason why you should not sav 80. To this question the gentleman made no answer, but seemed detennin ed to evade the question. He declares that he can make the matter all right, but unless he has been divorc ed from his wife and she proves to be the mother of these childreu, it cer tainly looks as though there were sorry times in store for him. What airs. Richardson has to say will be looked forward to with interest. How Kate Field was Bothered. Frhm the Spirit of the Times. I had that all out with Kate Field once. A brighter or more determined woman never lived. But think of her trying to play Peg Woffington! Noth ing in the whole range of stage art is so far from her intellectual grasp as that bouncing, vital character. But she wouldn't see it as I did, and I be lieve she was embittered b the many rude things the press said of her. By the way that reminds me of a very funny iucident when she made her theatrical experiment at Booth's. Our friend Freund.who was publish ing the Arcadian at that time, happen ed to be present at her debut, aud made a sketch of Kate Field's head and face as she was singing. It ap peared iu the next number of the Arcadian, and was, without doubt, the most cruel caricature ever publish in America, because it caughtsome of the unmistakablness of Miss Field's face, and exaggerated the peculiarities to a hideous extent, without destroying the identity. Jt was a picture ot mouth. And such a mouth. Well, when the paper was publish ed, and she saw a copy, she instantly set out to buy up the whole edition 1 w m ohebougbt two uuuured copies 01 Brentano.and had a man carried them up to her room. Then she started for the American News company, and bagged the whole stock. I happened to be in the Arcaedian office at that time, and the orders from Brentano and the news company,came in for five hundred more papers. En tire stock sold. I remember how Freund went around the office, rubbing bis hands in ecstacy, "The paper, said he, "nas made a bit at last; 1 knew it would. Then there came in another order for an extra hundred, and he sent word to his printers to put on more paper and keep the presses going. in tne meantime juss r ieia naa goi round to Bretano's and discovered a fresh pile. She was not a woman to turn back when she once undertook anything, so she bought up the addi tional two hundred. Her room up town was filling rapidly. She had four porters at work two were piling and two were carrying. And saiiiea iorin wun nrm intent, determined to take all the news stands in detail. And the news-dealers, seeing that there was a run on the . . . j .1. hcet, kept senuing aown inetr or ders. Freund had his presss going, and with raual determination meant to supply the public demand, if it took all summer, ah tne leuows in me Arcadian office were! extraordinarily elated.

Ashbel Welch, one of the directors of the Lehigh Valley K. ft, a man who has had large esperience in rail war nutters, de clares that no company ever yet run a pas senger train that paiJ expciiM. Perhaps the old ft-llow intended his remark aa a scathing rebuke to the conductors of tlue trains, whom Brick Pomeroy vows have but one fault, vir : The inability to determine which pcket is sacred to the company's funds, and in trying to settle the vexed question they get the change mixed up and end by appropriating the whole business. No doubt this is a bse slander; at all a . a. ? events, a passenger conuuciors reputation for honesty is always in jeopardy, and 10 ple ate cnnst-inlly trying to distinguish be tween the honest man he sieuu to be and the thief he is ud to be. Taken a class they, no donbt, posses as much integrity sa the lest of mankind. If p-ts-enger trains do not pay, then it must be conceded that R. K. companies de fray their expenses irom. their freight re ceipts. One example will be suuicieni 10 show in what proportion freight ntcs pre dominate. The gnw earning ol the Mis souri, Kansas and Texas Railway for the year ending June SOl'i, 1877. were as fol lows: Freight, $lS;f7oJ.ll ; pienzer. S59,C75.f2; mail.S-S.16.17; express, S4,.V0 ; miscellaneous, $l,5.S3.iK). By adding the passenger, mail, express and misceraneous receipts, together, it will be seen that the freight receipts are ahead more than $109,- 000. List year's receipts how an increase of $24,997.11 over the preceeding year. "What an immnese income!" exclaims the uninitiated. "Yes; and what a tremendous outgo," shouts the board of directors, and we fancy William Bond's voice is wafted to us across fifteen hundred miles of hill and valley, of lake and river, and the word "re trenchment" burets in among us like a bomb shell. Yes, sirs, the income is immense and m is the outgo. All these oitched enginrs must be got up, towed in and repaired ; the freight cars that have " juiup.il the track" and been smashed so fine that they would not do for picket fence material, must be re budded ; the killed and mangled stock must be piid for ; the manufacturer of agricul tural implements send in a bill for a point less idow or a toothless rake: the furniture dealer sues for damages done to marble- topped bureaus and full length mirrors; the grain shipper for his scattered kernels that have fallen in waste places.. Now and tben a baggage car takes nre, ami 00,000 nrth of silks, and laces, and ruutJ, and furbelows are to be paid for. "Women are a pack of infernal fools." said the blutl old attorney of the Lake Shore and Michigan southern K. K. Company in tne neptemoer 01 101 o. xie pulled his iron gray mustache and said some awful swear words as he surveyed the piles of splendid half burned silks and laces scattered around the huge baggage room in uch endless profusion. "Been to Newport to spend the summer have you ?" He continued addressing himself to a hand somely dressed lady. "Well I should think youd been to trance anil Drought ail this confounded nonsense Irom that city ot trash and cobwebs with you."

It costs a great deal of money to run a railroad properly and 11 costs a great deal more to run one improp erly. A first-class passenger train wreck where the irienos 01 ine rnppieu anu ueaa sue the corporation for damages has been known to cost the company the modest sum of $300,000: enoagh such outgoes will break down the proudest monopoly under heaven. At times an elemental war is waged and tracks are overflowed and washed away. The M. K. & T. Company's losses from "wash outs" this year and last will amount to no iBCoasiderable sum. there is also another avenue through which the funds of a corporation may vanish and bring back to the stockholders aothiag but vexation of spirit, vix: Inthepavmentol large salaries. Jewell's little game over the Erie Railroad company has been the laughing stock of the whole world. $40,000 per year and per quisites. As the total funded and floating debt of that road is only $56,159,030; at his present rate of reduction nmdpcrqmmla Mr. Jewell win be aoie 10 wipe out im record in abont nine hundred years accord ing to the figures of the New York Set Toe exorbitant prices that railroad com panies have bees paying their bead oficiak ha become the by-word of the press over all the land. The New York Hinld sneers at the idea of Gowan's being worth $75,000 per year to any company. A Philadelphi narjer savs : Kailroad directors and mans gers are trustees strictly. It should be felony for them to appropriate the dividends which belongs exclusively to ine stock holders. The same paper adds that it is a crying thai while railroad presidents, super iatMdents. accretariea and the like, receive from ten to one handled thousand dollars vear in salaries, the emploves are re duced to starvation wages. An Angust (1877) issue of the St. Louis Tiu, speaking in this connexion, under the head of "our national shame," says: "It is shameful that a country of such un bounded resources should be compelled to witness a labor revolt, ft is shameful that the causes which led to that revolt should be allowsd to exist. It is shameful that such a country, so full of the elements of wealth, should be reduced to the pitiful condition of living from hand to mouth," etc. As a sequel to Major Sylvester's mas terly leader on the vexed question the GlJte Democrat man spoke his little piece in something the same style, only leaning a fettle more to the side of capital, as of course he had the right to do, and then Gene Field of the Journal swooped down upon the still unsolved problem and slash ed at the delinquent politicians whom he blamed for cause and effect and who fear the double edged sword-like cut of his pen as much as they possibly could the sword of Damocles even if the latter weighed four times as mnrh as it has been said to weigh and had been suspended over their heads by a finer hair than Greek mytholo gy ever produced. Gen. Garfield in his speech concerning the labor problem at Athens Ohio made this startling sugges tion : If capitalists and laborers can come to an agreemennt by which their joint earnings can be equitably shared it will be well for both, but no legislature can compel such an agreement. If it were not for the fact that this is a serious matter to jest upon, this suggestion of the General's might be considered a good joke. Fancy for a moment the white handed, kid gloved autocrat of a large corporation disbursing any proportion of the earnings 01 that cor poration to the bronzed, soiled, muscular puller of throttles, heaver of coals, or twister of brakes, any proportion not on the pay roll. American railroad man agers are too far advanced in civilizition (?) to take a step of that sort. Some such method is indeed carried out in Austria. The company which acts as the benefactor and guardian of its laborers in terests is known as the Staats-Eisenhahn- (iesellschaft. Says the Sev York Salton concerning it: "Its main track extends from Bizias on the confines of Hungary and Servia to Bodenbach on the frontier of Bohemia and Saxony. Its capital is $100,000,000 in gold and it has 40,500 men emploved." Sitting in a houe in Sedalia, one cold morning last winter, an Austrian tramp said of this company that it had erected buildings for the accommodation of its em ployes which were rented or sold to them on 'reasonable terms, that in one district it had thirty-three well appointed schools in which 4.000 children were gratuitously in instructed, that the expenses of the schools during the vear 1375 amounted to 33,000 florins, or $13,000. He also said a benevo lent association had been organized; its members were the officers, subalterns and laborers of the company. He explained the intricate workings of the association and said that at the close of 1875 the soci ety had 2,019 paying members, 163 pension ed members 192 pensioned widows and 32 pensioned orphans. The association has contracted with thirty one hospitals and the requisite number of physicians for the accommodation of its members. In some cases the society has built its own hospitals. All this the tramp told, adding thi-t he was once employed as guard on a passenger train there; that the spirit of the Wander ing Jew came upon him one bright October morning and he shook the dnst of Austria off his feet and sailed for America; that he had wished himself back more than once. He finished his breakfast and his story and bowing with a sort of kingly grace he resumed his tramp. Since that date the Detroit Free Press has corroborated his story and declares that the record made by this great Austrian company is in the highest degree credita ble to "all concerned. Perhaps Ameri can railway companies can learn something from their foreign brethren. There certainly could be Bothing more humane, nor just than the co-operation of a railroad company with its employes in the establishment of a permanent pro vision for the support of those who in their devotion to the inteiests of the cor porations they served, have sustained injuries which'incapacitate them for rail way duties. If the railway official finds it hard work to make his princely salary cover the ground of his requirements, how does he suppose a mas occupying a subordinate position finds his meager wages sufficient to the plainest demands of na ture. There is a sense of gallinic injustice felt by the employe of a luck of humanity on the pari of his employer which rouses all the tiger in his nature. To sum the whole thing up, railway companies should equalise the pay of these who serve them from first to last.

If unfortunately it should not meet, it is not a question of for mula which have prevented it in a verv short time. The world will know what to think about the matter of the Russian-Turkish commission which it was reported in the dispatch from Constantinople yesterday, had failed to agree on a line of demarkation be tween Turkish and Russian forces, consisted of Russian and Turkish corps. The commander appointed at Gen. Todleben's suggestion to fix a new line of demarkation and make new regulations for the better preservation " of peace in the present dangerous proximity of the two armies. The Rus sian and Turkish soldiers, when the lines are iii contact, are cordial, and no trouble is apprehended despite the failure of the commission to agree, but it is thought that the Hues had better be further apart aud more pre cise regulations observed. The health of the Russian troops is improving. Shipping Cotton. London, May 25.
