A SEA CLASSIC.
"2I Vears at .Sea," by F. Stanhope II II I .
"Twenty Years at Sea" is a book which
is destined to be ranked as a sea classic.
Its. author Is F. Stanhope Hill, editor of
the Cambridge, Mass., Tribune, and it is
published by Hougton, Milllln it Co. The
best of his story Is that it is substantially
true, for in his preface Captain Hill con
fesses that he has taken "a little, a very
little, license, such as must be allowed any
old barnacle back when he starts out to
spin a yarn." His story reads like a ro
mance. It is more than 50 years since he
first went to sea as a raw country boy in
the good old ship Bombay forSouth Amer
ica. That was before the steam boiler and
the telegraph had driven all the romance
out of the mariner's calling. Every am
bitious youth had a chance for the quarter
deck, and every quarter deck a chance for
a fortune. Advancement for men of the
right stamp was rapid. Captain Hill was
a second mate at 17 and master of a full
rigged ship at twenty-one. He met cy
clones, mutinies and pirates, and In 18511,
whilo still young, he left the sea forever,
as he thought, with a snug little pile of
savings, and set up his lares and penates
in a pleasant Boston suburb.
But two short years wasj all he was des
tined to pass just then as a landsman.
In April, '01, came the firing on Sumter,
and while Capt, Hill's neighbors were go
ing into the army he. naturally turned to
the branch of the service with which he
was more familiar. He was' one of the
first of thousands of merchant ofilcers to
join the volunteer navy from Massachu
setts. On the steam frigate Kichmond he
was with Farragut in his magnificent vic
tory at New Orleans. Then he was order
ed to take charge of a blockader in the
Gulf of Mexico, and subsequently com
manded the river gunboats Benton and
Tyler, which bore such a useful part is as
sisting the operation of the Union armies
Thus Capt. Hill's career in the navy was
an unusually varied and eventful one, and,
like so many men who have done notable
deeds, he has the faculty of crisp, concise
and picturesque narrative. No manly boy
can read the little book without a quicken
ing of his patriotism.
The book has a local Interest from the
fact that Capt. Hill received his early edu
cation in Brattleboro, being a pupil of the
liev. Addison Brown, a former editor of
The Phoenix. Mr. Hill went from here to
begin his career as a sailor. Ho lived hero
with his uncle, John H. Blake, afterward
of the noted banking firm of Blake Broth
ers, at what is now the corner of Main and
Elliot streets. AVhen Capt. Hill was in
Brattleboro last May at the burial of his
cousin, Mrs. Mary Houghton, he related
many facts of interest concerning the
Brattleboro of 50 years ago.

lions or tienernl 1'iihllc Interest.
The December nipctlnc of the Profes
8ion.it club, held at the Brooks House
Monday evening, was marked by an un
usually largo attendance of members and
guests, llie paper, by Dr. AA . N. Thomp
son of the Brattleboro Ketrcat, was a re
markably strong and carefully compacted
statement of the facts and theories, upon
mis interesting subject ot investigation,
which science has established or suggested.
It was a paper which admits of no satis
factory abstract, and our purpose is only
to touch upon some of Its more salient
Dr. Thompson said In beginning: "The
general truth that organisms of a given
type descend from organisms of the same
type has been so well established as to bo
axiomatic. The trite aphorism of Lin
naeus, 'Like begets like,' Is written on
the universal face of nature. From the
simplest form of protoplasm, which repro
duces Itself by division, to the highest dif
ferentiation In the human organism, there
is no exception to this rule. A creature
that did not resemble Its parents would bo
a monstrosity. The matter of transmission
of hereditary tendency, physical and men
tal, characteristic of the parents, Is a bio
logical problem that has not as yet received
a satisfactory solution."
The theories which have been advanced
from the earliest time to the present, es
pecially those of Darwin, Prof. AA'elsmann,
antl of the Neo-Lamarcklan school, were
outlined. A fact especially to be noted is
that while certain nervous tendencies or
habits, or Injuries strongly affecting the
nervous system, are transmitted, mutila
tions of various organs are not. For Il
lustration, the Chinese habit of compress
ing the feet and the Indian habit of com
pressing the head produce no effect upon
the posterity of these races. AA'elsmann
cut off the tails of mice through a thou
sand generations without Influencing the
growth of that appendage. The conclu
sion is that acquired variations to be trans
mitted must be in the line of utility.
Among domestic animals useful varia
tions are brought about by the artificial se
lection of the breeder, which accomplishes
in a few generations the same end that
would be attained by natural selection only
after almost countless generations. Lord
Somervllle, speaking of the work of breed
ers in this respect, says: "It would seem
that they had chalked upon the wall a
form perfect in itself, and then given it ex
istence." In the same line history records
that Frederick AA'llllam I., the father of
Frederick the Great, who was noted for
his love of colossal statures, would not al
low his guards to marry women of stature
inferior to their own, and the result was a
generation of men and women of Impos
ing size. It is to be noted, In passing,
that any relaxation of vigilance on the
part of the breeder is followed by a ten
dency of the animal to return to its nor
The tendency to variation Is not incom
patible with the laws of heredity, but
rather a confirmation of them, for the
reason that every animal is the composite
representative, not only of Its immediate
progenitors, but of many lines of ancestors.
Even In the fifth generation the number is
o2, and if wo include but five more It
reaches a round thousand.
Only among the invertebrata and the
sub-species of vertebrata, where the envi
ronment is uniformly the same and instinct
the only known form of mental activity,
does like really beget like, and the species
and genus remain constant. AA'hen we ap
proach the higher forms of vertebrata,
where crossing is carried on in all degrees
of varying dissimilarity, the species alone
is found to be constant, while its traits and
characteristics present almost limitless va
riation. Heredity is not, then, a simple
law, but instead a miss of complex phe
nomena, dependent in turn on certain laws
of generation upon which the whole su
perstructure of heredity is founded.
The tendency of Inbreeding to Intensify
individual characteristics is well known,
but among breeders It is a recognized fact
that If carried too far It leads to Inevitable
deterioration. In the human race the
same rule holds true. It cannot be main
tained that the evil effects of marriages of
persons near of kin is great if occurring
only here and there, and It cannot be de
nied that a somewhat larger per cent of
diseases consequent upon degeneration ap
pear in their families. The more dissimi
lar the parents or the ancestry the less will
be the evil effects. The offspring of colo
nies of criminals steadily deteriorate, not
only mentally and morally, but physically,
until sterility results and the race or fami
ly becomes extinct.
Interesting examples were quoted of the
results produced by crosses of different
breeds of animals and different races of
men. Darwin experimented by crossing
pure breeds of fowl, in which there was
not a trace of red, which was the original
coloring, with the result that In several of
the mongrels red appeared. Children of
the union of a white woman with a Hot
tentot have always the good nature and
the gentle disposition of the father, but
the children of white men and Hottentot
women have in them all the germs of un
ruly passion and vice. AVhen the negro is
crossed with the Hottentot the product is a
mild, industrious person. An instance of
reversion to the primitive type is recorded
by Livingstone, who says that the children
of Portugese and negroes are so notorious
ly bad that an inhabitant once said to him,
"God made the white man and God made
the black man, but the devil made the
The various phenomena of heredity are
conveniently grouped under the three heads
of direct heredity, reverslonal heredity,
and indirect heredity. Under the second
classification many illustrations were noted.
Plutarch relates the case of a Greek wom
an who gave birth to a negro child. AA'hen
brought to trial It transpired that she was
descended in the fourtli degree from a ne
gro. Darwin quotes the remarkable case
of a pointer which gave birth to seven
puppies, four of which were marked with
blue and white, a color so unusual among
pointers that the mother was thought to
have played false with one of the grey
hounds, and the whole litter was killed ex
cept one, which was kept as a curiosity.
Two years afterward it was proved that
the young dog was the perfect image of a
celebrated pointer named Sappho, and was
In fact his great-great grandson.
To complete the classification Hlbotadds
that of the heredity of influence, as when
the offspring of a second or subsequent un
ion shows the characteristics peculiar to
the father of the first. For illustration,
an English mare, which in 1815 was cov
ered by a quagga, gave birth to a mule
marked with spots. In 1817, 1818 and 1823
she was covered successively by three Arab
stallions, and produced three brown colts
with bands like the quagga. It is notably
the same among dogs, and human history
is not without Illustration In this respect.
The tendency to reproduce the same la
tent attribute or defect in succeeding gen
erations is well authenticated, as when
blindness or deafness appears in succeed
ing representatives at a given age. After
Insanity the most common morbid tenden
cy subject to the laws of heredity, Is crime.
Aiisioiie recognized tins 2;juu years ago,
Speaking upon the heritage of moral de
pravity he tells of the case of a man who
denied his responsibility for beating his
lamer, "becauso my tamer beat his father,
and he again beat his, and he also (point
ing to his child) will beat mo when he be
comes a man, lor it runs in our family.'
The case of the New York family of crim
inals, known as the Jukes, often quoted In
literature upon crime, was cited. The his
tory of the family begins in 1700 and In
cludes 70!) persons, of whom more than
100 were the descendants of "Margaret,
the mother of criminals." One hundred
and eighty were paupers and received, al
together 800 years of aid, while aside from
petty crimes and thieving 1-10 were con
victed of crime and received sentences ag
gregating 140 years.
Francis Gallon has shown, in a careful
review of the lives of the kindred of about
-400 Illustrious men of all periods of histo
ry, that the qualities which characterized
them were, under the limitations already
mentioned, hereditary, and he states the
conclusion that, "as It Is easy by a process
of careful selection to obtain a breed of
dogs or horses gifted with a peculiar pow
er, so it would bo quite practicable to pro
duce a highly gifted race of men by judi
cious marriagedurlng several generations."
His statistics show that ability does not
often rise abruptly, but rather by a gradu
al and regular curve In the generations that
preceded Its culmination.
The essayist said In conclusion: "The
enquiry might be continued through every
attribute of any species, race or individual
with the same result. The offspring al
ways combine in some degree the qualities
of both Hues of ancestry. Capabilities
and aptitudes must descend from the pa
rents. Crime and disease come In the
same way. Heredity Itself develops noth
ing, but it holds and faithfully transmits
from generation to generation, patent and
latent characteristics. The tendencies of
the organism we Inherit may be in the
main, good or bad, they could scarcely be
exclusively either, and they may bo modi
fied by education and other forces of envi
ronment." The paper bore the unmistakable mark
of exhaustive reading in Dr. Thompson's
specialty, and of able and faithful work In
summarizing and preparing the conclusions
reached for the benefit af the club. The
discussion which followed It was led by
Principal Home and Dr. Uonland, anil de

Mr. Eaton says that he lias suffered, since
Dec. 1, a severe attack of nervous prottra
tion, and though now improving, it is
doubtful If he deems it wise to try to fulfil
his promise to prepare a paper for the club
during the present season.
From Judge Shea a letter was read stat
ing that he will piobably prefer to give his
paper on Fort Sumter in April or May.
At the February meeting of the club

BISHOP-ELECT HALL'S DEGREE.
In a brief item last week reference was
made to the distinguished honor given
Bishop-elect Hall by the University of
Oxford in conferring on him the degree of
doctor of divinity. The Latin speech de
livered on the occasion was at once so fe
licitous and so complimentary in its terms
as to be worth reproducing. It was written
by Dr. luce, reglus professor of the Ox
ford divinity school, who was to have pre
sented Father Hall for his degree, but on ac
count of Dr. luce's Illness that .service fell
to Archdeacon Palmer, who recited the
speech, of which a translation is here

"J present to you the I!ev. Arthur Craw

stance of how closely the bonds of con
cord and affinity bind the Anglican church
in the trans-Atlantic republic to our own
church in Great Britain. For this our
alumnus, after he had given his youthful
years to the study of the liberal arts, be
took himself to theology and was admitted
to holy orders. He did not, however, un
dertake the office of a pariah priest, exer
cising the pastoral care of souls within a
limited district; but having been admitted
to the Society of St. John the Evangelist
at Cowley near to Oxford, he was train
ed for preaching the word of God wherev
er opportunity offered. Students of an
tiquity will not fail to remember that an
ciently our university possessed the right
of granting licenses to preach throughout
the whole of England.
"After two years this reverend man, be
ing sent to America by the command of
his superiors, distinguished himself as a
most excellent preacher In the United
States and In the adjacent country of Can
ada; for all men with grateful mind were
wont to acknowledge his sacred eloquence,
his integrity of life, and his most fervent
love for religion. Nor did his preaching
lack critical and keen-witted judges; since
during 18 years he was residing in the city
of Boston, the very citadel anil home of
literature and of the Muses In the AA'est
ern world. Having been recalled to Eng
land by the command of his superiors, he
has, during the two years which have just
elapsed, persevered in the same manner of
life. At this present time the Americans,
mindful of former benefits, have called
him back to greater things. Though an
English citizen by birth and an English
presbyter by ordination, the clergy and lai
ty of the diocese of Vermont havo elected
him by their suffrages to be their bishop.
Forgetful of his oiyn people and of his
own home, but not without the hope that
he is obedient to a divine call, this our
alumnus goes forth. 3
"And now, that thero be not wanting
tokens of the friendship duo to himself
