Thrilling Incident. —Steamboats do
catch lire sometimes. We have had two or
three dreadful corroborations of the unpleas
ant fact of late. We came near being an
unconscious victim, once, of such a calamity.
No matter when it was—it is not long
ago,—however—and no matter which is tla
bout—though we saw her yesterday at the
wharf, looking as innocent as an infant.-
We had departed for a neighboring city
Provided wii.li all the daily papers, we had
taken a comfortable seat on the upper deck
to enjoy the weather and the scenery.—
While thus engaged, the master of the boat,
with whom we were acquainted, seated him
self 1 y our sid", uni for an hour kept us
deeply interested wi.’i Ics humorous imrra
t.ves. his dioll hisloriettes, aud his comic
couiniviits.
w a ob-vrved, however, that his face
begun to grow serious, aud that lie often
pa a - i in ..is happiest flood of repartee to
i a--i a : u of cm' arrassnieut at the i>oat
aa i at tue water. We thought that we
were m iking rather a tardy progress ; but
we knew fits prudence, and so calmly sub
mitted to his judgment. In a short time
his u.i a iu a became too apparent, and, cx
cus...g h, nisei f, he left us, and hurried up to
the puot. We curiously followed him.
‘‘Mr. Blank, v.hat's tlie matter with the
boat ?” was his abrupt inquiry.
“Can’t say sir. Ihli was on a spree yes
terday. IT, hups lie’s asleep !’
T.ie bnlividijal called Bill, we found, was
the engineer. Down went the little cup
tain to the engine room. We were not far
behi.'id him.
Wiiat a s'g'it encountered his petrified
gaze. His eyes dilated until the bulls al
most leaped from their bursting sockets !
There lay tlie engineer on the floor fast
asleep ! A trenunduous lire roared under
tiie red hot boiler, and not three inches ol
w. t r inside of it !
W c to a; rt iieuded enougli oftlie scene to
feel that Vie were all on the verge of destruc
t on. \i e mw at a glance that alarm
would only hasten our impending fate.—
W hut r... to lie done? Pump water into
t ie bo.ii-r ! \\ iiy, it would collapse in an
it* taut 1 Wo could only watch our little
captain.
i mom: lit he beheld llic imminence of
the dan.. 1 r, he I eeume as calm and cool as
r. icicle, ile retreated to Ins slat room,
lie was not abs at live iniuutis, but ii
hctmed, in our peut-np agony of iipprchen
s. i.kt- an hoar. W e could not leave the
enga e ro <i'i. W c cxjiccted every moineut
to mar tli ternlie explosion that would end
o ir days o.i earth ; but were fascinated as
with a spi 11, to the spot. We could Imt
look on the blazing furnace and the sleep
ing nan at it.-; glowing front.
W ami the captain returned lie had a
loaded pistol in each hand. He pointed
both to the head of the unconscious shnnber
ei, and tlieu, vidli a violent kick rendered
him suddenly wide awake.
“Draw that lire !’’ said lie, nodding at t! e
prate, around the wooden work of which
tae smoke already began to curl from the
intense heat.
ur at God I ’ exclaimed the engineer,
e; ringing up, will be certain death.”
i'-'j it w;d he Without, in ten seconds,”
sternly r -pis i t >•> captain, placing the
muzzle i ! on pistol at the temple of the
affrighted man.
He si 1 no more, 1 ut throwing up the
furnace noos , r.ipi dy commenced to draw
the coals from beneath the boiler.
“Gin. moment a.ore determines our fate !”
hoarsely v,hi-per, d our little captain, as la
bel i,on- d us to b. gone.
V> c hastened to place ourselves ns far
i ‘ i'll ns we ( otild g. t. l ice minutes more
passed that see/neij about like an eternity.
'1 hen ive saw the hose cm chilly Juinded
down —-the fire buckets passed along—the
pumps put in motion.
'1 he captaiu next came on dc< k and hailed
u pa-sing Vessel. It came too. The steam
boat had stopped by this time, and explain
ing that the machinery was out of order,
he pas.-ed us all on board (lie otlu-r vessel,
and s.iOved oil. W e got back to New
ork before night, and not a passenger had
imbib, J the faintest idea of the re.it cause
of their detention.
’I tie next day we nu t the captain, and
graz;mg oar hand, he said with solemn
Ciirne.aue.-s—“God forbid that we should
ever pass tiiiough such a scene again I”
IbiAsiis or Lih:.—On a cold day in .Jan
uary hi.-t, a pensive-faced boy, a)ipareutly
nine cr ten years of age, sat iu a broker’s
ofiiee, twirling between bis tluimli and fore
finger n briglit new penny upon the baized
talile before him.
Tim occupant of the office lmd gone to
the “Board,” leaving word with the boy to
close up at (lie usual time ; that he would
not t turn again that cuiy, as lie was going
to take a sleigh-ride
The thumb and linger continued making
the rapid whirls of the penny. The mind
within was also engaged ; his skates, his
lit tie sleigh, and his dinner, were tlm objects
of his thoughts—for the bit that mother
gave him lor lunch w as swallowed up before
ten o’, lock. Jit- could not help it, lie was
‘so hungry.’ Besides mother had promised
that she v-ould try and have a dinner that
day ; aud Hope whispered that she would,
uud then—stteli Inn on his sleigh with the
neighboring lx ■>! A restless desire to get
home soon ioliowed visions o, so much hap
piness.
He must loon at the Trinity clock. ‘'Ten
ininute.-, In* soitly urtteumt. I, e.ml mv time
will be up.” As ho closed the dour a li>r
lont-lookitig iituii pu. hed toward hiiu with
hat in hand, supplicating charity. The rev
erie w.,s broken.
'i ue child an l man looked long and silent
ly at each other. The latter, with a still
idotic stare, exclaimed, "whose boy are
you V
“Airs. H unmet’.-.," replied the bereaved,
but ingenious boy.
The unhappy man re-crossed the thresh
hold with tlie vague, uncertain feeling that
t iu little p tie-lace mid himself stood iu re
lation to each other,
it was true.
'Trie father and sou had again met ! Aud
the hope of the young child, which a few
minutes before had buoyed him up—where
to'as it ? Gone I
f’-ie little form sank down. The tears
kowed Jqll hui) f.i “My poor father I”
— —
was spoken iii low and heart-broken tones
bv the stricken child. The “cross’ was al
ready his. Skates, sleigh, dinner—all were
forgotten in that cruel anguish,
,V-rnin the penny was turned, and, in an
interval of child like grief, he wished lie
could spend it. But no! the penny must
lie kept for the ferry-mun. lie crossed the
liver to reach his home—the home of his
lone mother—who for six long years, had
toiled struggled, trivial less and alone. The
earthly tie was broken ; but not by death.
The husband and fatlu r was a drunkard and
an outcast. —Heme Jemetwl.

Menu's K«.c s—The season for gal Wring
the eggs of the Marli, or sea fowl, from the
South Fnralone Island closes about the mid
dle of the coining month. \Vc are informed
by one of the parties interested that up to
the present time, the conpuiiy engaged in
the business have succeeded in collecting the
enormous ipmutity of twelve thousand dozen,
near a hundred and fifty llioiisaml eggs, and
estimates, before the season is over, to reach
as high as several thousand dozen more,—
These eggs are sold in the maiket at from
forty to forty-five cents per dozen, realizing
i handsome profit. Last year they brought
as high as seventy-five cents.
About six years ago several member* of
the pn sent einiljainy located upon tlie Island,
built thcmsclvo a shanty imd<T the lee ot
rocks, mid whiled away the time in fishing.
Ti 'ir former eon pau.ons on the main land
upbraided them for their conduct, giving ns
a reason that, they neglected the opportunity
to realize a speedy fortune in not taking
part in the speculative mania of the times.
Tiiev persisted in remaining where they
were, notwithstanding the inducements held
out, to them to give up their isolated abode.
What was the consequence? They shortly
after discovered that the eggs of the gulls,
which came to their rocky retreat, was a
imiricious article of food. From that time
forward they thought their fortunes made,
while tlieir former companions were making
money one day and loosing it another.—
Since then, during part of the spring and
summer months, thev have keen busily en
gaged in collecting these eggs, creating a
demand for them in the market, supplying
families ami rest a urn u Is, ami selling them
to outward I omul vessels, nml pocketing
the pt'i.eci ds. They own a little schooner
which carries them to and from the city, '
supplying our citizens with fresh eggs about
three times a week.
The manner by which they single out the
fresh eggs f:mil the stale ones is singular
and interesting. The gulls lay their eggs
every li ght, and in the daytime they mark
out a place on the rocks, say for instance
twenty feet scpiare, or in a circle, and if
they limi no I'n sh inn s in tlie sj ot so null ked
iout they break all I he eggs w it Inn it. Night
'comes on and (lie gulls in my rid numbers
.Hock to tlieir usual places of ivost, and full
ing all the eggs broken, which piobnblv
they had Ini<I two or three nights before,
proceed to lay fresh one. After the gulls
take wings in the nn ruing, the employees of
the company scramble up the rocks nml col
1 i t them, park them in baskets, ship them
on board the schooner and set sail for the
city, where they li ml r. m'y sale to the tin r
k.'t venders, bclorc one ball ot' our popula
tion are up and id out. — Yi ten Tnl!;.
“Fort Vigii.anck.”—In addition to the
sand-bag breast-work thrown up to protect
t lie approach from Sacramento Street,
we notice that one, ecpially formidale anil
extensive, lias hern erected so as to guard
I he c ut iv.m e to the rci r of the rooms in
Unlink street, out of Paris.
For the benefit of those at n distance,
who know nothing of these headquarters
except what they lead in the papers, we
feel inclined to give in detail, a description
ot the locality. The rooms are embraced in
l lie block hounded by Front, Ihivis, Cali
fornia ami Sacramento streets, having uu
entrance from, mid fmniiug oil, the latter.
T'ms square is 2 l;i feet each wi y, and is
covered with two story brick buildings, and
is about one block from the water of the
buy. The Booms | roper, are upon Sacra
mento street, uml embrace about 100 feet
frontage in the center of tiie block. This
Iront is protected by a sand bag breastwork,
which is thrown up about 10 feet high, six
let i tluek, and 20 feet from the budding.
A narrow pus-way through this forl.lient on
admits members to the retreat, from which
ingress is nnule into the buildings. There
line gourds stationed at the pass through
the breastwork, mid also a double sell ai
the entrance to the doors, as wc II as another
ut the stairway that leads to the second
Hour, where the il.lfci'ent departments and
cells are located. A small silver, <alien
ll.iilei k street, pats into the editor of the
block from Pans street, which admits of a
rear entrance to the Booms, ami which is
barricaded by sandbags, as stated in the fust
part ul this paragraph.
I pou the second lloor the apartments
cover more space than upon the (irst, ns they
have opened communication with several
adjoining buildings, by making doorways,
so that they must now occupy nearly or
quite one half of the entire block upon the
second lloor.
1 pon the root is placed, in a conspicuous
position, an alarm bell of about 700 pounds
weight, as well as several pieces of cannon,
w hich overlooktheddl'erenl streets. Nearly
all tlie s vs iu tiie block are occupied us
usiiiil by badness houses, anil their transac
tions go on iiuiuti erupted. The corrcsdond
ing block upon the opposite side of Sncra
nicnto street is vacant, having been burnt
over a lew mouths since. The adjoining
blocks on the other sides, except on (lie lust,
are composed of solid brick and masonry
work, ths preventing any possibility of tiring
the buildings by the opponents of the Com
mittee. About a hundred guards are kept
constantly mi watch, to protect the Booms
and property of the Committee.— Alta.
Oxm in Im >.. — At u baptism iu a West
eiu Suite, a lew weeks since, a girl of a
bhy posit,ou ( about to lie emersed, very
naturally n .i. tcd the uUcmptsof the Miuis
ti-i to lead her into the water, and alter a
si.oi t sli uggle begun to sob and cry with
great violence. At this moment, while a
crowd of spectators were anxiously watching
the result, a younger brother of the giid
i-tcj psi up to her and exclaimed, in uu un
der lone —‘ Dya’t be scared, fchil, they’re
