Saturday Evening, Oet. 1G, I8HI.
An Educated Tramp.
On Saturday night, November
2nd, 1884, an Englishman named
Morley Roberta arrived at Westminster on the str, Gem and registered at the Farmer's Home, then
kept by Hr. Turnbull. This man,
although wearing garments and presenting an appearance which would
lead most people to pronounce him
an ordinary tramp, was a^ very remarkable character. When he arrived in this city he had just completed a journey of 8000 miles over-
Idnd from New York. Fart of that
journey was made on the ears,
where he often beat his way, port on
steamers, and a good deal on foot.
From the western end of the 0. F.
R., then at the summit ofthe Rocky
Mountains, he had walked nearly
all the way to the Mission, a distance of about 540 miles, and he
landed here with about two dollars
in his pocket. But Roberts was an
educated man, being well read in
many branches of. literature, and
familiar with many of the standard
Latin and Greek authors. In the
spring of 1884 he left England for a
tramp on the American continent,
and reached Texas in April, dead
broke. There lie found employment
among cattle herders and bull punchers until it became irksome,
and after suffering hunger and
fatigue and misfortune he left for
the Rocky Mountains to work on
the C. P. R. On the 7th of August
he left St. Paul for the scene of his
future operations, and after a journey of 1600 miles by rail reached
the end of the track with an empty
pocket. The railway work was not
to his taste, and his senso of right
could not tolerate the treatment to
which the meit wort) subjected by
some of the bosses. He determined,
therefore, to push on to the coast.
The incidents of his wanderings ate
recorded in "The Western Avernus,"
a book of 307 pages just issued in
London, and the volume is one of
more than ordinary interest. Mr.
Roberts is a Jfeenjobptvor and seems
to be perfectly frank and honest in
recording circumstances as he found
them. He is a graceful writer) too,
and his decription of scenery and
surroundings is of undoubted merit.
ln his long and wearisome tramp
from the Kicking Horse to this eity
he met with experiences and incidents whieh although related without apparent coloring, possess as
muoh interest to the reader as some
of the most thrilling works of fiction. He dosoribes all the plaoe
through which he passed, the people
whom he met, the character of the
stopping places, aad the dismal
state of civilization he observed.
His personal sufferings were often
intense. Without the means of
procuring suitable clothing or food,
he experienced from day to day the
inconveniences of extreme cold and
the pangs of real hunger. His feet
became terribly blistered, and for
dnys he tramped along with skinned
heels Wl empty stomach. After
coming ovor Jackass Mountain he
describes his astonishment at finding a house, formerly used as a
hotel, where he got a square meal
with Revs. Messrs. Edwards and
Small, two English church clergyman who kept batcholor's hall in
that lonely place. The pie he ate
at that meal he describes ns being
like "a board, solid, unbendiiblc,
durable, and waterproof;" and it
gave him dyspepsia for throe days.
This, it may bo explained, was Mr.
Edwards' first attempt at pie making—and it could not be pronounced a success. His experiences in
this city were more romantic than
delightful. Two days after his arrival his financial balance sheet
showed just 25cta. of a surplus on
hand, and he went to work handling
lumber in the Dominion Saw Mill.
This was a kind of employment to
which he had not been accustomed,
but he did the best he could.
After working n few days, he says:
The superintendent spoke to McCulloch ono day: "What kind of a
man is that fellow with the highlit)"
"Well, Mr. G—, he does not know
much about sawmills, but I tell you
he's a rustler. He gets round
quicker'n any man in mill the in spite
of his long legs." "Wby, I nearly
fired him the first morning," said the
superintendent; "But I must have
mnde a mistake." Mr. Roberts
soon found his way to the public
library where he spent manyhoursot
the evenings reading such works as
pleased him. On the 29th of December he walked out to Granville with
John Anderssen, Fete, and Oharley,
and on his return he was attacked
by fever from which he did not quite
recover until sometime in February.
The lou of time, and the doctor's
bill, made him in debt $30. By
the end of March the mill owed
him (23, which he managed to get
through a  singular incident.   Ono
day nt dinner ho thrashed the
China cook and was discharged by
Mr, Henderson, the manager, and
draw bin money. In about ten days
afterwards, he says, the mill company became bankrupt, so that if ho
had remained it is doubtful if he
would have drawn any wages at all.
After returning to Eagle Pass and
making some money, he went to Victoria, but found no work and 'spent
all his surplus; worked his way on
tho str. Olympian to Tacoma; found
no work there; beat his way to
Kalama on a freight train, and
walked to Portland; no work there;
after trying iu vain through the
country for work ho walked noaily
all the way to San Francisco, where
he arrived with 25 eta. in his pocket
But no work was to be bad there,
and for days' he' Wo&dered about
looking for jobs and starving Finally he struck work in the country
and saved money enough to take
him back to England. The book
may be said to contain a record of
the wanderings of an educated
tramp a period of whose life seems to
have been sadly wasted among the
lowest classes of society. We hope
Roberts has since learned that time
is too valuable to be squandered
aimlessly as he squandred it on this
continent.

London, Oct. 14.—The CTironirfe'j
correspondent nt Berlin says that he
has learned from an unimpeachable
authority that the condition of the
German crown prince is precarious and
that Dr. Mackenzie's treatment has
failed. That the prince became so
weak in Tublach that he could travel
only by easy stages, and that he positively refuses to submit to any further
operation, although the original symptoms havo reappeared.
TOOK MRS. IIALLEIT.
London, Oct. 14.—The wife of Col.
Hughes-Hallett lias appealed to the
Conservative committee of Rochester
to bo lenient towards her husband, and
not to call upon him to resign hia seat
in tlie house of commons. She has,
sho says, condoned her husbands offence, and thinks the electors should
nlso do so. Sho offers to personally
visit all the electors in her husband's
behalf, and asks the committee's opinion on the subject. Tho committee
has replied, extending its sympathy to
Mrs. Hallett, but does not favor her
visit to tho electors.
ON THE WAR l'ATH.
BiLLiNus, Mon., Oct. 14.—Special
Agent Howard, who is investigating
the difficulty at tho Crow agency, said
to-day thnt unless ordered otherwise.
by to-morrow, nn attempt will be made
to arrest the insubordinate Indians.
Bloodshed will surely follow. Chief
Sword Bearer at the head of 200
braves is camped within gunshot of
the agency awaiting developments.
Ho ia gaining reinforcements daily,
and much uneasiness is felt by the
settlers. Tho Indians ut tbo.agency

TIIIS MOISMNU'S DESPATCH!)'.
WlWIUiRLV RESIONS.
Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 15. —At
12:30 o'clock this morning General
Master Workman Powderly attached
hiB signnturo to a peremptory resignation of his position. He will withhold the presentation of tho document
to the assembly ponding aotion upon
tho report of the ooraniittee on laws
which wss submitted just beforo the
adjournment last evening. The report
recommended dropping off two members of tiro general-executive board
and placing the appointing power of
the membership of that body in the
hands of the general master workman.
This is the climax of the administration's light upon Barry, of Michigan,
and Bailey, of Ohio. The trouble
originated when the executive board
ordered that the stock yards strike at
Chicago be ended. Barry and Bailey
insisted then, and again yesterday ia
the convention, that the men would
win had thoy been left alone, and this
insubordination apparently tho master
workman never forgive,
TO OVERAWE ANARCHISTS.
Ciiif'Airo, Oct. 16.—The presence of
a battalion of U. S. regular soldier, at
tlio international encampment haa
suggested to a number of offlieUU tha
idea of keeping them here until after
the execution of the condemned anarchists on Nov. Ilth. Liout.-General
Sheridan will arrive here to-day, and
it is stated that the mayor and sheriff
will request the liout.-general to older
a battalion into camp somewhere near
the jail until all signs of trouble an
over.
1 beecheb'u successor.
New York,' Oot. 16.—Dr, Lyman
Abbott, editor of the Christian fTnion,
has been engaged ■• preacher for
Plymouth Church pending the .election of a permanent pastor. He wilt
begin his duties in November. It
is understood tbat Dr. Abbott will not'
bo a candidate for permanent paator
and that he will not uta\ta—vSat
pastorate dutios other than preaching.
INSTANTLY KILLED.
Omaha, Neb., Oct. 15.—Last evening Wm. Wickmeyer, of Cornel, Iowa,
and H. W. Rice, of Desmoine., were
instantly killed in south lewa whil.
attempting to cross the railroad track.
They stepped out of a south bound
train and were struek by a north bound
train. They were laborers employed
in packing-houses.
CLEVELAND IN DANCER.
Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 15.—When
the Kansas Oity, Fort Scott & Gulf
train, preceding presidential train, arrived at the trestle between Bonner-
ville and Jonesbdra, Ark., yest>erdav,
the engineer discovered the trestle to
be on fire. A correspondent who happened to be on the train made a careful examination of the burned timbers,
whioh gave unmistakeable evidence of
an attempt at train wrecking. The
fire was started on the underside of the
oross tie. in suoh a manner that then
can be no possible belief that tha
sparks were the cause of it Further
examination showed that the torch had
been applied' to eight or nine of the.
timbers. There are many good reasons
for believing that the fiends who aet
fire to this trestle had in mind the
president's special train which- was- to
be the noxt one over the road after the
train which discovered the fire. Every
trainman whose opinion the correspondent asked on the matter said
freely that he bad no doubt the intention was to wreck the president's train.
NORTHERN PACIFIC MATTERS. '
New York, Oct. 16. -President
Harris said to-day concerning tha n-
port of radical changes to be made in
the Northern Pacific's management:
"So far as I am' McfcHiS'-I waa
elected one of. thirteen: direotomat
the recent annual meeting and I intend to serve the fair term. Tha
directors made me president, but of
course I would resign if the board
wishod to put another man in my
place. There ia no movement in that
direction so far as I mm informed.
The reported consolidation with tha
Wisconsin Central is without foundation. We are on good terms, but than
is no reason why the Northern Pacific
should buy or lease any railroad to

ANOTHER OKI ANTIC CANAL.
Ottawa, Oct. 15.—Tha Conservative government hon is kept in ofllce
by keeping electors busy with publio
works. This system of sapping the
resources bf the country keep. Sir
John Macdonald in power and is not
allowed to flag. The cabinet, after
mature consideration, haa determined
to begin shortly another moat important undertaking, which was broached
as far back as 1833. They an going
to utilize the valley of the River Trent
to connect Lakes Huron and Ontario
by a canal that will shorten the. present route from head of St fit Law*
rence to Mackinaw Straits, a distance
of 850 miles to 750 miles. Tha estimated cost will be {10,000,000. Tha
Trent is a large river dischirgiug into
the Bay of Quinto at a point 08 miles
west of Kingston, and in passing from
Lake Ontario to Lake Huron by tbe
proposed route a vessel would ascend
tho River Trent, oross Ryo Lake to
Ottanabee river, and clear Buckhom,
Oliemong, Pigeon, Sturgeon, Cameron
and Balsam Lakes, theuee by canal to
Talbot River into Lake Simcoa,
and by River Severn to Lake Huron.
THIS AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES.
ANOTHER OADLE PROJECT.
San Francisco, Oot. 15.—A project
is on foot hen to lay a submarine cable
to Farallene Islands, 23 miles west of
this port in the Pacific Ocean. When
tho chamber of commerce assembles
on Tuosday afternoon a communication
to bo sent to tho chief signal officer,
A. W. Groely, asking him to aasilt in
tho 'project, will be presented for the
approval of tho organization, and with
it will bo a resolution requeiling the
California delegation in congress to do
their utmost to obtain an appropriation for that purpose.
HE DENIES IT.
Minneapolis, Oct 15.—The report
published this morning that Goneral
Master Powderly had at 12:30 p. m.
written a peremptory resignation created a sensation. It was not generally
believed. Powderly was aeen early
and he denied having written out hia

halnrd.r Eveaiag, Ori.   IS,
Tbe TrausitaclRe Line.
Having obtained a satisfactory
subsidy for the Pacific steamship
line from the imperial government,
the 0. P. R. Co. is now making arrangements to place suitable steamers of its own on the route. Sir
Georgo Stephen will shortly leave
for England in pursuance of this
seheme. Tho Montreal Star says
that there are to be three steamers,
built after the most approved pattern, capablo of making 18 miles tn
hour, and being about 4,000 tons
burden. One of the conditions of
the imperial subvention is that the
vessels shall be constructed according to a pattern that shall meot the
approval of the British admiralty,
and be available for imperial service
in case of war. It is promised that
they shall be in every respect flrst-
olass, and equal to any steamship
afloat. The placing of these fine
steamers on the route between this
province and Ohina will be an event
of great importance to Oanada as
well as to the 0. P. B. The steamers now on tlie transpacific line are
obviously unsuitable in many respects. Their passenger accommodation is extremely limited and of a
kind that is not calculated to promote travel, and they are too slow
for the times. With high-class
steamers running in connection with
the 0. P. R. we mny expect to seo
a very large increase in passenger
travel to and from China and Japan,
and whatever benefit there is to be
obtained from this trade will fall
into tbe hands of our own people
instead of going to foreigners. This
arrangement will also considerably
augment British shipping on the
Pacific. Hitherto the great bulk of
the carrying trade of the North
Pacific has been dono in American
vessels, but the day may not be far
off when the British fleets will cover
the Pacific as they now cover tbe
Atlantic. It is also announced
again that the 0. P. lt. Oo. will put
a new line of fast steamships on
the Atlantic to run in connection
with the railway, and that the journey {rom London to Yokohama will
be made in 24 days!
Good News.
It is stated that an arrangement
haa been reached at lost between
the Dominion government and the
government of this province whereby patents will at once be issued to
settlers on the lands known as the
Sumas Dyking lands. These lands
are in Chilliwhack municipality,
and are among the richest and most
valuable agricultural lands in the'
province. The area is very large,
bat a considerable portion of it is
subject to overflow. It is believed
that the extent of the overflow may
be considerably reduced by dyking,
but hitherto the settlers have been
discouraged from attempting any
extensive public enterprises because
of the uncertainty surrounding their
titles to the land. Our readers are
aware that the ownership of these
lands is claimed by both governments, and the question of right has
not yet been settled. Af arrangement has been made, however, to
issue joint titles to holders, and
these titles will not be affected by
any proceedings between the two
. governments respecting the right of
administration. The adjustment of
this embarrassing question removes
one of the greatest hindrances to
the development of this district,
and we may look at once for signs
of substantial improvement. The
good agricultural lands of this district are being rapidly taken up,
and before many years it will be
diffioult to And a piece of unoccupied land fit for cultivation. There
an several instances, however,
where people are holding a great
deal more land than they can develop to advantage, and in some cases
they seem unwilling to accept anything like a reasonable figure for
their idle property. This policy
retards the progress of settlement,
and interferes with tho production
of wealth, and ia contrary to the
publio interest During the presont
season a great many new settlers
have located in the district of Westminster, and it is probable the immigration next year will be quite as
large as it ever has been. The putting of the Sumas dyking lands on
the market will be an event of real
importance, and we hope it may be
the means of securing to us a large
number of good settlers who will
add materially to the productiveness
and wealth of the province. The
Viotoria Times intimates that tho
arrangement above referred to is one
oi the results of the provincial sec-
reUry'i visit to Ottawa. If this be
true, the mission may fairly be pro-
munoed a moat successful one, even
ii it should accomplish nothing
more; and the illnatured and vindictive remarks of the Guardian
will have heen proved to be entirely
uncalled for—if, indeed, any suoh
proof ii needed.

Dyspeptic1
Why She liirl'usfil.
You say you wont to tho party last
night and you saw Mrs. Smith, an old
friend, whom you had not scon since
sho and your sister were ut school together. Vou had a very pleasant tulk
until supper, whon you gavo hor your
arm and took her to supper. When
aome ono came along with a few glasses
of wine on a waiter and offered her a
glass, you saw her shudder as she said
"No!" and you wonder why Mrs.
Smith, who didn't need to be so particular about such things, not only refused, but Bhuddorod when she said
" No!" You cannot toll why! I can
toll why. You went on with your talk
and a little flirtation, did you? I
won't say you didn't. Sho was vory
gay, and seemed very glad to forget
herself, did she? Very well, I am
very glad that you gave her that hour
of. tho evening. I can toll you where
she went after the party was over.
She went home—the latest person from
the party. She was glad it wns late,
for her husband had not come homo.
She sat and rend for an hour and her
husband did not come. She wrote for
an hour and hor husband did not come.
Sho sat at the piano for an hour but
he did not como. At length, between
3 and 4 o'clock, there was a noise at
the door, and two policemen held him
in their arms. She knows them both
woll by this time. It happens so often
that she knows evory policeman on the
beat. They hade her good-night.
She had locked her child's room that
he might not abuse him. Sho took
tho abuse as be flung himsolf on the
bed. She dragged off his neck-cloth
and coat, and sat there until ho should
fall into a stupid sleep. She is the
woman who rofusod the glass of wine
with a shudder. You thought she was
gay and bright. I know hor Btory because I am her minister. They havo a
sort of skeleton in the closet, which wo
are permitted to soo and you are not.
And whon we see that skeleton, do
you wonder that we sometimes say
pretty sharp things about moderate
drinking, and the temptations offered
at parties ?—Heir. E. E. Hale.

Beer and Health.
A pamphlet sent out a few mouths
ago by tho "literary bureau" of tho
United States Brewers' Association,
claiming exceptional good health and
longevity for men employed in breweries and heavy beer-drinkers, called
forth the following noteworthy reply,
published in tho Iitrmrmice Monitor:
"Thomaun's pamphlet, published in
this oity a short time ago in the interest of tho brewers, in which it wns
attempted to prove by statistics that
boor-drinking is healty, has called out
the following criticism from Dr. Bom-
baugh, whose long experience as a
a medical examiner enables him to
speak from the book: Thomanu simply
proves whnt he did not start out to
prove—that the robust mon employed
in the breweries, who drink from forty
to fifty glasses of beer daily, remain in
robust health for somo years by virtue of their large umount of vital
force and tenaoity; not by virtue of
beer, but in spito of it. We have
closely watched the heavy beer-drinker
in this community, with referonce to
their mortality ratio, for moro than
twenty years, and our observations
Bhow that out of evory hundred who
saturate themselves in this immoderate way, not -more than five pass the
age of fifty-three. Those that escnpo
Bright'a disease or uriirinic poisoning
become victims of cirrhosis, or fatty
degeneration, or cryBipelas, or apoplexy. One or othor of theso fatal
diseases invariably gives tho finishing
touch to the 'splendid physique,'about
which Thomson rants, long before the
period of natural expectation."
Alarm of the Liquor Dealers.
The St. Louis Olobe-Democrat, commenting upon the plans of tho liquor
men to defeat prohibition, says: "The
alarm which has boon manifested by
tho loading liquor dealers throughout
tho country recently is ono of tho
most significant and oncouraging signs
of tho times. Representatives of tho
whiskey interest rcalizo at Inst that
their industry is in peril, and aro taking measures to protect themselves.
During nearly all the years whioh hnvo
intervened* bo*t'ween the timo of the
organization of the first temperance
society in the United States and the
early portion of tbe present year, tho
liquor men considered themselves
masters of the situation. It iB probable, to be sure, thnt they felt some
fear when the early crusades ugainst
the rum evil were inaugurated ubout
half a century ago, but that emotion
was successfully transformed into con-
tompt, amusement and indifference ae
they realizod their own powers nnd
the weakness of their foes. But all
this has been changed since tho beginning of the present year. The old
arrogance und swagger has departed,
nnd in its place lias appeared a decided
manifestation oi dread at the perils by
whioh they havo Buddonly found
themselves confronted,"
Dr. Prudden says that an ordinary
glass of water may contain hundreds
of thousands of bacteria, but nobody
should quit water on thnt account
and take up with the other thing. A
bushel of bacteria in his stomach will
play far less havoo with a man's
natural history than ever so small a
snake ih his boot.—Washington Clitic.

Tho name of a certain liquor-selling
firm in a certain town suggested to a
wag who conveniently dropped his
"ha" that "the business of tho 'ouse
wns to make cash di stew-'arts." Vory

I have used. Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using tlio Vigor, and was surprised at
tho good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, hut
so stimulated its growth, that I have

In 1803, Monsieur de B. (an elder
brother of the narrator) spent some time
in Russia, and on returning to Franc i
published an account of his travels, with'
some stringent comments on the condition of the lower classes. The book
was, of course, prohibited in Russia, mil

I had frequently noticed that when
engaged iu deep' thought, jiarticulary at
night, there seemed lo be something like
a compression ol the eyelids, the upper
one, especially, and Uio eyes themselves
were apparently turned upward, as ii
looking iu that direction. This invari-
ubly oi'cured; and tlie moment Ihat, by
uu effort, f arrested the course of thought,
uud lived the mind from the subject Willi
which it was engaged, Uur eyes rumiiiitTd
tlieir natural position und thu compression of tli j lide ceased. Now, it occurred
to me one ulght that I would not allow
tlie eyes to turn upward, but kept them
deleriiiiuedly in the opposite position, us
if looking down; and having done so (or

the position I have described; but a

No man caret much for puddings if he
can have hia beefsteak anil potatoes well
cooked, and Ke liefer can expect to have
ttiriii well cooked unless his wife knows
ho,w to cook them; and us for„shirt buttons, men don't wear them at all any
more. A man likes to see a woman sewing petticoats and nobby jackets, and
putting new ribbons on a hat. The idea
that a woman could be expected to sew
on shirt buttons never cuts any figure,
and waa abandoned long enough ago.
Every girl should be anxious to leurn

she may devote bar exclusive attention
to them, but becauso they are in general
more valuable than any other accomplishment she can lean In the aame time

The very large and respectable audience which welcomed the Puck Comic

desire. They are artists, evory one,
and thoroughly understand thoir
business. "Fun on Shipboard" is a
conglomeration of burlesque, comedy,
opera and tragedy, and consequently
pleases every taste.— Ileridd.

Incorrect as isaal.
The Guardian tltis morning announces that freight arrivals per C.P.R.
havo been light for tlie past few days.
Our cotemporary is mistaken as usual,
but if ho had paid us much attention
to our railway items as to our general
news when making up his local column, tho mistake would not have
occurred. Instead of being light this
week, the arrivals of freight have
been very heavy, and when the returns are made out thoy will bo found
to bo almost equal to any provious
week, and fully double thoso of last
week. 	
Close Season.
The closo season for trout commenced on October first and will continue until December thirty - first.
The closo season for trout is the same
in this province as in other parts of
the Dominion; this is a mistake, for
the trout arc at their very best during
the time fishing is prohibited. It is
not until after the middle of January
they commenco to grow bad, and under
Uie presont law thoy spawn during the
open season. We understand an effort
will be mado to have the close season
changed, us it is utterly useless at
present for the purpose intonded.

Bomewnrd Hound,
Tho Indians, who havo boen working
tor the canneries all summer, are being
paid off and are returning to their
villages up theooast. Their wages have
averaged (2.25 per day since the season
opened, the greator part nf which hss
been spent tn this eity in purchasing
supplies and clothing for the winter.
Several canoo loads of these Siwashes
left for the northern coast and the island
to-day,in every case loaded to the water's
edge with almost every conceivable
kind of merchandise. The Indians are
ull welt pleased with their soasim's
work and are returning home in the
best of spirits. They will spend tiro
winter in hunting and trapping, which
in some oases is almost ss profitable as
salmon fishing.

The Stcvcuso-t Ledge.
Mr. O. G. Ballantyno, of Viotoria,
arrived down from Hopo last evening
on the steamer Irving. Ho has just
eamo over tho mountains from Granite
Crook, whero for some timo he has
been looking nftcr his interets iu the
Stevenson ledge of which he owns the
northern extension. Mr. Ballantyno
states most emphatically that tlie
Stevenson ledge has been found, and
it is equal to all that"wos expected of
it. Ho brings with him COO lbs. of
vory fine ore which will be sont to
San Francisco to be melted. Tho ore
was not chosen for it richness, but is a
fair sample of the ledge. Mr. Ballantyno describes the ledge as 3 ft 6 in.
wide and easy for working. As to the
richness of the ore no one seems to
have the slightest doubt, and if present
prospects hold out, the owners of the
ledge have a bonanza.

DUBLIN EXCITE I).
Dublin, Oot. 14.—AH Dublin » astounded at tho announcement tbat
Valentine Hinds bas beon appointed a
commissioner by the government.
Hinds was bailiff of the estates of
Lord Lansdowne at Luggarcurmn. He
managed the recent eviction from that
estate, in which eighty tenants wero
ousted from their holdings, and it
was upon his advice that Lord Lansdowne refused to allow the reduction
of 15 per cent, demanded by the tenants.
BOUND FOR AULD SCOTM.
Nfw York, Oct. 14.—The Scottish
cutter Thistle started for home this
morning. It was 0 o'clock when the
crew began to make preparations for
departure, aud at 0:35 the anchor was
weighed. Tho' yacht wts under way
from her original anchorage off Tomp-
kinsville, Staten Island. It was in no
manner a joyous leaving, except that
tho weather was perfect. The atmosphere was clear and bracing, and a
twonty-milo-an-hour breeze was blowing from tho north-west. Thero were
few yachts or spectators about the
scene, and little in the way of a "sond-
ott" was given to the defeated cutter.
As the yacht filled away on the port
tack and began Iter run down the bay,
the colors on tho Corinthian Yacht
Olub house were dipped, salutes were
fired on the. steiunyacht Hindu and
sloop Vision, and two or threo of tho
dozen watermen on shore waved their
huts. It was under such auspices, mid
uccompanied by Mr. "William Clark's
big steamyacht Mohicun, that tho
Tlmtlo , luft American shores. Sho
recognized the attempted show of good
feeling, however, by a parting salute
as she went under full way. Tlie cutter ran along boforo the fresh brcczo
in hor jury rig at a lively pace, aud
and passed Sandy Hook at 7:50 a. ni.
Beforo leaving, Capt. Barr said ho
hoped to make the run across the Atlantic in 10 dnys, as ho believed he
would carry tho north-west wind all
the way ovor.
