7 IHfc f-IKST MEMORY". It is my earliest memory: Behind, by viewless sunlight kissed. Lies, glimmering, the golden mist That hides, for ever hides, from me, The fairy land of infancy! The gateway of our narrow yard My baby feet from roving barred. One day I found it swinging wide; My freedom was, at last, my own; 1 pressed triumphantly outside, And stepped forth in a world unknown I Across the way, a field of corn "Was rustling in the breezy morn. I hastened to it: overhead . The long green leaves their banners spread; (No eastern palm, to-day, to me, So proudly tall would, seem to be !) Above against the clear, blue sky. The crests of flowers rose straight and high, "While, in the sheltering shade beneath. The silk hung from each emerald sheath. At once my dimpled hands were full "What joy the glistening threads to pull, And bear the treasure home to show ! "When, lo, I could not find the W3y to go! I "wandered helpless here and there; The long, green leaves with rustling sound, "Were bending, swayi- g, all around: They whispered terror in my ears: "Where had I come ! O where? O where r1 Myall, my baby alL seemed lost. Since I the door-yard gate had crossed. "With trembling limbs and blind with tears, And lifting piercing shriek on shriek. That still to me seemed faint and weak, Of all eartifs creatures most forlorn, I stood amid that waving corn "When on my brow I felt a kiss, "Warm, loving arms were round me prest. And in an ecstacy of bliss 1 lay upon my mother's breast! It is my earliest memory: Ay, more ! how oft it comes to me "When all looks dark, around, above, And stems a parable of love!

I suppose that a hundred ships come and go where one is lost, hut when one reflects on the dangers to which they are exposed he must marvel that so many escape. I saw a list of thirty six missing ships the other day, miss ing from American, English and French ports, arid, the fate of each was un known or guessed at. Say that half of them foundered in mid-ocean, five were run down in collision, five more were wrecked on capes or shoals where j all hands perished, and what became of the rest? JSay that three of the re mainder were destroyed by fire, and what fate shall we attach to the other five? From the moment a vessel leaves port to begin her voyage she is ex posed to danger, and though a sailor may be ever( so brave and hardy, he can not shake off the knowledge that he lives on Jthe verge of the grave. There are gales, and fogs, and colli sions, and fire, and hidden rocks, and powerful currents; and so I repeat that it is a marvel more sailing craft are not added to the lonesome list of missing which is recorded year by year. In the year 1855, as the British bark. Lord Oldham, of which I was second mate, was approaching the Canary Islands, and when about ISO miles dis tant, we were caught in the tail end of a cyclone and badly knocked about. We got out with some slight loss anil a great deal of discomfort, and were bearing up again to our course when a great calamity happened. Half an hour before midnight, while the bark was doing her best under a fresh breeze, a sudden and great shock was felt Her masts went by the board, and, as I reached the deck, a minute after the shock, the hull seemed to split open from stem to stern. I had gone below to get a glass of bitters, leaving the deck only thirty seconds before the shock came. I was knocked down and confused, but it could not have been over sixty sec onds before I regained the deck. It was just in time to be carried over board. I went with a lot of raffle from the decks, and amid the frightened cries of the men. and a quarter of an hour later, when I h.-sd lashed myself in the cross-trees of the mainmast, I could not. get an answer to any of my calls to the rest of the crew. How it was that all were lost I never could make out. There was raffle enough to have floated 500 men, and my watch were certainly ail wide awake at the moment of the collision. The only ex planation Tcan give is that they were somehow caught and t rushed. I drift ed during the rest of the night, and was picked up in the morning by a vessel bound hi. By that time the wreckage had drifted apart until noth ing could be found. Nothing what ever was picked up or cast upon any shore, and had I not been saved, the fate of the bark could only have been guessed at What did she collide with? The lookouts were on the bow, and alert, and the night so clrar that a ship could have been seen a mile away, The chart showed clear water for a. hundred miles about, and we must have run full tilt upon some vessel which had. been dismasted and bilged in a hurricane. If loaded with tim ber, her decks would have been awash, and she would have been as bad as a rock to collide with. There was only one shock, and the whole bows of the bark were crushed in by it. Three vears later, while off the Banks of Brazil in a small English ship called the White Cloud, another -strange thing happened. I was first I mate of this ship, and about ten o'clock in tho forenoon, the weather being very fine and the wind light, I had all the men on deck setting up the rig ging, some of which had slackened away. A man aloft suddenly hailed the deck with the information that a large whale was bearing down on tho Bbip, head on. We were a merchant vessel, and the sight of a whale had no interest for us. We went on with onr work for three or four minutes, when the man again hailed me with: "If that fellow holds his course he will be dead on to us, sir. He's a big fellow, and coming like an iron steamer." I ran forward to get a look, and the sea was so smooth that I had no diffi culty in making out the whale. He was still a mife away, coming down at about steamer speed, and holding a course as straight as if somebody aboard of him was steering by com pass. I was not a bit alarmed, expect ing to see him show flukes every moment, but the captain came on deck and ordered the man at the wheel to break off two or three points. This brought the whala on our port bow. As I told you, I expected to see him sound every moment. It was astonish ing that he had not discovered us long before. I could scarcely believe my eyes as he held on, and by and by we had him alongside. I am telling you the truth when I say he actually rubbed us as we passed each other, and the odor of him was so rank that some of the men cried out in disgust That whale was ninety feet long if he was an inch, and he had ahead on him like a brick wall. So far as we could see he was carrying no harpoons and had no fresh wound, but he was moss grown and barnacled as if he had knocked about for a couple of hundred years. The fact of his holding his own in such a bull-headed way was alarm ing, and when we were clear of him we fell to congratulating ourselves over the close shave. We were perhaps a mile apart when the whale slewed around. The moment we discovered what he was doing we knew that he meant to attack. The breeze had now died away until we could not hope to dodge him, and he had not yet fairly turned when we dropped the yawl from the davits and ran her alongside to the bow. Two men were ordered to get water and provisions into her, and as the whale headed up for us we went off before the breeze lo give him all the room we could. Three or four minutes settled the question of whether ho was after the ship or sailing his own course. He headed up for her, coming faster and faster, and when he was two cable's length away there was a great white wail of water rolling before him, and his speed was from eight een to twenty miles an hour. Ho struck us full on the starboard quarter, and the shock was as if two ships had collided. Planks and ribs gave way before him, and as he re coiled from the blow our ship settled down stern first and was under water within two minutes. Everybody was knocked down by the shock, and everybody got up to rush for the yawl.. I was sucked down almost as soon as I reached my feet, and after a struggle, in which I came out first best by a close shave, I was shot to the surface amid a lot of deck raffle. There were two or three men around me at first and as I was heaved up I caught sight of the yawl with at least two men in her. The whale was still at hand, lying very quiet, but I feared he would soon be aroused and attack us in turn, and I seized the galley door and pad dled away to get out of his reach. While doing this a squall came down and hung on for twenty minutes, and when it had passed 1 could see nothing of boat nor whale. That afternoon. 'an hour before sun down, T was picked up by the Ameri can whaler Richard Knox. She al ready had our yawl, which she had found bottom up, but had not seen any of the men nor met with any wreck age. 1 was again the only one saved, and but for my testimony the fate of the ship would have forever remained a mystery. As to why the whale at tacked us was made more clear after my rescue. The Knox had raised and chased him the evening before, and he had been "gallied" or annoyed so often during the month past that he had brecome ugly. He came for us with the intention of sending the ship to the bottom, and he succeeded only too well in carrying out his purpose. A third mvslerv was the case of the Janet Wilcox, an American brig bound for Rio Janeiro. I was second mate of her when the occurrence took plaee. We had bad weather for a good share of the voyage, but the brig was new and stanch, and was at no time in im minent peril. About three hundred miles off Rio, while enjoying a bit of good weather, we one morning raised a longboat full of men dead ahead of us. Indeed, the boat had takea down her sail and was waiting for us. to come up. There were nine men aboard of her, and they had plenty df wnter and provisions. The story they " told was that they were.a part of the. crew of a large British ship which bad. been burned two days before. They claimed that all had got off iri boats, but that the boat-; had become separated in the heavy weather!" They were" a iiard looking lot composed of all nationali ties, and when we had taken' them aDoara our 'captain was Dy no means satisfied with their story. One of them claimed to be second mate, and, as the crow had a!l got off in two boats, it was a puzzle that the first mate was not in command of one. Other strange things came up. and thi story of the men did not hang together, and so all hands wGre ordered to keep an eye on tho fellows. We got a good slant of wind and had run down to within fifty or sixty miles of the coast when4 the fellows showed their hands. They had been allowed to mingle freely with our crew, but had carefully abstained from a remark to indicate that they had an evil pur pose in view. Their boat was largo and unwieldy, and we had towed it after us rather than to cast it loose or to attempt to hoist it inboard. I wad on watch from eight to twelve, and nothing suspicious occurred during the first three hours. About eleven ""clock, as I stood near the man at the wh'cl, I was hailed from the foremast with: Mr. Merlin, will you please step forward and' take a look at something we can't make out?" I afterward recalled that it was not the voice of one of my watch, but I did not heed the matter at tho time. I started forward and had reached the waist of the vessel when two men seized me, lifted me clear of the deck, and before I could recover from my astonishment I was flung overboard head first It was more by instinct than any plan of my own that I swam for the boat towing astern. Had the brig not beeu sailing close hauled, and therefore sailing at a moderate pace, I should not have reached it It was a close shave and as I hung to tho gun wale for a moment I heard a great confusion on the brig. It was mutiny, of course, and I was the first victim. My idea was to get aboard again as soon as possible, and the only way was to get into the yawl, pull her close up. and then shin up the painter. After an ef fort or two I pulled myself in, and just then there were oaths and cries and pistol shots from the brig, followed by a couple of splashes alongside, which meant that two bodies, living or dead, had gone overboard. 1 had hold of the painter when it was loosened from above and I drifted rapidly astern. The fight continued as long as I was within hearing. I was out of it en tirely, and could only hope that our crew, who were all good men, would overcome the mutineers in the strug gle. After the brig was out of sight I got sail on the boat, and followed her to the best of my judgment It was just in the gray of morning that I was picked up by a British ship bound into Rio. It wasn't so verv mysterious that wc picked up the boat and her crew attempted our capture, but it certainly was queer that from the hour she left me to this day that brig has never been heard of. But for my es cape she would have been rated as lost and the insurance paid. As it was the insurance company contested pay ment, and won their case in court The insurance of that day, at least, did not provide for any such emergency. The naval and merchant service of every power was notified of the cir cumstance and for two or tiiree years every sea w;is undo: observation, but the brig was never overhauled, nor any of her old crew heord of. My idea is that she foundered within a few days with all hands, but others differ. She certainly did not turn pirate and she was never heard of as a wreck. There was no such British ship as the men said, nor was any craft burned as they stated. Thcv must have been lying in wait; but it is queer that they would be so far out to sea in such a boat Taken all in all it was a strange case, and no one has ever got the right end of the thread to solve the tangle. N. Y. Sun. Cooling OfY a Piano. One young man in an Albany board ing house is in trouble. A young lady residing in the establishment for some time had made life miserable by play ing on the asthmatic piano in the par lor. Finally patience became a vice, and the young man resolved to sacri fice himself for the good of others. He procured a hose, attached it to tho cold water faucet in the wash-room, carried the other end into the parlor and turned it upon the fair disciple of Vulcan. The effect was even more than could have been expected, for it not only stopped the noise but poured into the "works" of the piano. In the subsequent excitement this was not noticed. The wires had time to be come rusted, and an expense of .$50 was necessary for making repairs. The landlady is now endeavoring to collect the amount of the young man, whose financial condition makes it impossible for him to comply with tho demand. Albany (N. Y.) Journal.

The vast progress of China in recent years is set in a striking light in an article, "The March of the Mongol," by W. 15. Dunlop. Mr. Dunlop dates the new movement from the period soon after the suppression of the Tai ping rebellion, when the Chinese Gov ernment first established the imperial maritime customs, which, under the wise and energetic control of Sir Rob ert Hart, the inspector-general of cus toms at Peking, has attained so re markable a development. It is sig nificant of the shrewdness of the Chi nese that they porceived the advan tage to be derived from dismissing the native collectors and appointing trust worthy foreigners in their room. The experiment was justified by a large and immediate rise in the amount of tho revenue from customs duties, which has ever since been steadily in creasing a considerable part of the surplus having been employed in creep ing" lighthouses along the immense seaboard of China, which has now one of the best lighted coasts in the world. It is a sign of the new spirit that guides the counsels of the Government that there have been erected during the last year or two many thousands of miles of telegraph wires radiating through the Empire. It is now pos sible to telegraph from London to Peking or Chung King, the principal town of the rich and fertile province of Szechueh, a city nearly fifteen hun dred miles in the interior of the coun try. Meanwhile the extension of the Chinese telegraph system is, we are told, proceeding at a rate which may shortly astonish even American tele graphists. Railway extension is more difficult and necessarily slower; bu against this has to be set the splendid system of internal water communica tion. The total coast trade in foreign built vessels outward and inward atKwuntcd in 1SSG to the enormous sum of 17,000,000 tons. Here again the Chinese arc well aware of tho ad vantages to be gained from employing : signers. Only a certain portion of foreign commerce of the Empire emncs within the jurisdiction of the imperial maritime customs; but this portion reached in 18SG the hitherto unprecedented amount of 41,000,000 still a trilling amount when we con sider that China proper is estimated by the imperial statisticians, with the assistance of the best native authori ties, to have a population of 339,000, 000 souls. The only practical obstacle to a trade of startling dimensions between China and the outside world seems to be tho old "Likin" system of internal dues, some notion of which may be derived from the fact that on the great west river trade route between Canton and Peso, a distance of 900 miles, merchan dise is said to have to run the gauntlet of nearly one hundred customs bar riers. The Government, however, has shown significant signs of being alive to this evil, which it has already mit igated to some extent, in the teeth of vested interests, by allowing theLikin charges in certain cases to be com muted by a fixed payment for a transit pass." The improvement in the system of national defense is still more striking. Huge arsenals under foreign direction are springing up in various directions, and the va;jt army of China is being gradually supplied with weapons of the latest pattern, while great battal ions arc being incessantly drilled and disciplined by European officers. The Chinese navv already consists of twenty-six foreign built men-of-war, some of them large and powerful iron-clads, and about one hundred gunboats, built in the arsenals of the empire. Referring to the notorious industry and enterprise of the Chinese abroad, Mr. Dunlop prophesies that when the subjects of the Celestial Em pire enjoy under the new and more enlightened policy the same privileges and opportunities at home as are af forded to them abroad there will be no room for doubt as to what is to bo tho dominating power of the future in tho far east of Asia. The writer of the article on "Tho March of the Mongol" is very far from being tho only authority on Asiatic affairs who thinks that the solution of the Eastern question, as' far as Russian aggression in Asia is concerned, will one day be found in an Anglo-Chinese alliance.
