Keen the dark, old tweets and prism
ike dwelling, had ther fascination. Of
course I had but short period* of liberty
from the brig ; but aueh as I had were
improved. I wander- d to the Plata
dt Armas, to the Cathedral, that holds
the bones of Colu ttbu», and to the
AlameJjs or Prouieuadet, where tbe
f. iMi.tii.t-beauty of Havana la tt.ayt
astir at evening. I met aquads of
Spaniih soldiers, tud taw groups of
the handsomely dreaaed officers of
Isabella II., the young girl-queen re-
cen 11 crowned in Madrid.
But 1 riaked much. And one evening, having separated from my shipmates, I perceived myself watched
closely by t prieetly looking fellow,
wrapped in a short cloak, who perhaps
thought that the young Americano had
a dollar or two in his pocket. At
length be suddenly confronted me, and
his long, bright knife shot out like t
ray of light. I dodged tbe blow, and
ran, ger ting down to'he harbor side
with a whole skin, but with a clean cut
across the breast of my blue jacket.
Meanwhile, Jim Beane, ray boy
shipmate, was getting into evil ways,
and he and old Dick brought up that
night at tbe calalroose,—Dick being
uraiy drunk, and Jim foolishly so.
Old Jack, too, had his rigging well set

I showed him the cut in my jacket, he

getting out from under his lee, and

A month passed, and, as we I.y
wai ing cargo, letters and papers
reached us from In,me, telling how
nearly we hud lieen given up before
the gladdening news f our arrival out
came to ihe busy seaport.
-My mother wrt" of her sleepless
nights during those long thr-e weeks

Welldoth.se who have friends at
sea know how momentous may lie the
niport of a single line in the shipping
column of the paper that they read.
My mo her also remarked that the
same captain had reported passing,
close off Cuba, "a schooner, low, and
black, «ith loss of foremast. Seemed
to be full of men"
I could feel that this report troubled
her, and that, although she did not say
so, she feared that the unknown cr«ft
might be a pirate. How little did she
imagine the fearful danger we had
fallen into from this same mysterious
vessel, "full of men," or that the life of
her boy had so lately hung upon the
weakness of that very 'foreintt-." Indeed, while the pira e wts chasing us,
I had thought how th" clock ticked at
home ; how the cat lay under theatove;
and how my mother, all unconscious
of my peril, went about ber work.
We lay at Havana six weeks, and

Jim Beane had no mother nor any

Gulf Stream was helping us as stoutly
at our keel as was the south wind
ar our topsails. We crossed the latitude
nf Charleston, and came up with the
Hatteras, with the same fresh breeze
aloft, and ihe anme sweeping current
below ; and old Jack "allowed'' that
if the wind stood, we wou'd make the
run fro n port to port in eight days.
But he had a suspicion cf Hatteras,
and aaid that all Greenland might be
down upon us before night. And«»n
was even so. At sunset we were
ljing-to under a close reefed main
topsail, with wind, rain, snow, hail,
and a tremendous sea, all battling us
at once.

The 'reck wassoonfar astern,and our

on the following morning. A fourth

had been capable of recovery, and
these slowly improved.
Close off the Mew England coast we
encountered s blinding snowstorm from
due north ; and while lying to at night,
ith our head to the northeast, we
were startled in the mid-watch by a
tremendous apparition right athwart
our jib boom. How it loomed up in
the snow-daikcned heaven, as I caught
sight of it while thrashing mv arms to
keep from freexing. It was a heavy
ship running off the coast. The long
black hull, an undefined mass in the

night with the sty full ot mateo-_3r»
■ucoeeded by t sunless, breezeless
morning, with gray clouds overhead
and a thick haze along the south. It
was at hand !—the old grayback which
bad so often rocked my cozy home on
shore and roared in my window. And
here we were, right in a bight of the
land, with no wind to take us in or
off. Tha land was not in sight; but
laud, in such an atmosphere, cannot
be seen far; and, although not positive
as to his exact offing, Capt. Moore
knew the Inca to be in a position of
great peril.
It was late in the afternoon-watch
before the brig got steerageway with
anything like -a steady breete,—and
when such s breeze sprang up, it came
from the southeast. Should we tt
tempt to run in with it, the result
would probably be that we would at
night find ourselves in storm and darkness, hopelessly close upon a lee shore,
with the harbor entrance bidden' and
unattainable in the uproar tnd fury of
the gale. It would be wisest tn work
off shore , and so, boarding both tacks,
and bracing sharp up, we headed from
the land. With a deeply lotded West-
Indiaman, and a head best sea, this
was but t forlorn undertaking ; and
had we flung the log over board, it
would have remained a good while under the counter.
But the breete fast gathered
strength. The ocean roughened, snd
rolled wi»h t h-tvier twell tbtn one
would litre looked for with s wind of
no grester force. At length the wtters
blackened, tnd we re»lised thtt it wis
blowing hard. The light sails were
taken in, and soon after the mainsail
was hauled up snd furled and the top
sails double-reefed. Aa darkness fell
around, we breiled up the trysail,
hauled down the jib snd foretopmisi-
stays, tnd furled the foresail. We had
already rigg- d preventer braces on the
after arms.
No sail now remained on the brig
but the double-reefed topsails ; but th-
wind incretsed to suoh violence that
i soon became necessary to furl the
fore and close-reef the main. And now
ctme the fate of poor little Jim Beane.
It was the last time thtt we were ever
to assist each other in reefing or furling.
All hands had been up to furl the
fore-topsail ; had comedown the fore-
rigging and gone up the main, and
were lying out on the msin-ysrd to
close reef the ssil. The Incs was roll
ing and plunging in such a manner
that her ysrdarms almost dipped in
the crests of the great sett; the rein
wts nearly enough to drown a man
aloft; snd the wind teemed to grapple
with ut like t furious giant, till we
could hardly cling to the yard. Jtck
was tt the weather earing tnd Dick tt
the lee ; and the ssil sltt and thundered
now swelling above our heids tnd now
under our feet. We had thrown ourselves forward upon it totraother ind
keep it down, wbeni tt it thivered
tgain, and wis then taken  aback, poor
little Jim Beane lost his balance tnd
went headlong over tbe yard. There
were thunder and lightning in this gale
although it was as late as the 21st of
of December ; and just ss the boy fell,
the black night w*a made brilliant
day, by one ef those prolonged or
double flashes which we sometimes
witness I had a glimpse of bis heels
at he went over, snd saw him plunge
into the top of a Bet which hsppened at
that moment to swell from under the
brig, roaming and foaming and coursing
away to leeward. A pitch darkness
followed ; snd, insofar as I could have
any coherent thoughts in that uproar
of sea and sky, I pictured him aa carried
in the terrible arms of the atorm,
struggling tnd helpless, among a
thousand   yawing cavern*  tnd mouo-

thi leewari," could no more be heard
than the chirp of a cricket in a cannonade. But at last Ih* work wai done,
and we went down on deck.
During ihe (vavict of the gum, the
•et was Mown comparatively level ;
bnt with tbe least lull of the tempest,
the broad, angry rollers would shoot up
with gigantis -trength, making the brig
rock tnd libor till jt aeemed ai if the
iuar,t« would go by the board. It was
not until midnight that we shipped the
firtt tea. A great, swinging, inoun-
tamout mass, it .truck us on ihe
weather bow, an I tilled the decki to
the vail,—gtartinrf the galley, and
carrying twav a portion of the bul-
*trks. An hour later, another sea
boarded us over the beam. We saw it
coming, and leaped into the rigging for
-afety. It had a long, fair twing,
from the forecastle to the quarter,—
hurying the entire hroadside, and
sweeping everything before it bul the
masts. The galley, jlretdy shatiered
was crushed to figments; the longboat was torn from in, fae.erijiigis and
rumbled overboard, and the lee bulwarks were cempleiely demoliahed.
Wiih the ton<bo»t went my little

until ihia night, witnetsed the boarding
of a veasel by a sea, and to me the

tubliniity. It waa surprising that our
brio; could meet the ibnck of hundreds
of torn of water, rolling befoie the gale

hands were employed in clearing the
wreck, in order tbat the broken spsrt
might not remain thumping against the
aide. This was dangerous and difficult
work, bul I had an ambition to take
my part in it with the oihen ; anl. indeed, T was, perhaps, less careful than
an older sail >r aould have been. While
we were thus employed, the jib-boom,
at i tremendous lurch of the vesml,
broke short off at thu cap, and had.
like the topgallant masts, to be cut
drift. Still the main-topsail held on,
—the (tout, new sail upon which so
much depended ; and under its steadying power aloft, the excellent sea-bout
lay-to like a gull.
The nighl wore away all the faster
for the excitement and tumult, an 1 it
wat uow almost daybreak ; vet the
gale showed nu sign of abating. Each
of us in his o«n mind, over and over
tgiiii, estimated the leeway which ibe
brig must be making, comparing it
with the probable duration of the
southessier and our distance from the
land. Our going ashore, proviJed
tbe storm slioulJ continue much
longer, was simply t question of hours
and minutes, and our fate certain dearh.
Even now, at any moment, the crash
might come. The breakers might be
twenry miles away, or only one utile.
A poiiiion or more tryiug auapense can
hard-y be imagined.
At length, between live and sn
o'clock in the mornimg, wnile it was
•lill utterly dark, the lulls in the gale
began to grow louger, and tbe heavy
gusts t • weaken; but the brig rolled
worse i ti«n ever, at the falling of the
wind allowed her to s«>ng o_f into the
trough of the sea. Evidently the
height of the storm was over; yet, un
lets tho wind should come out violently
from the northaard, we must still no

woik off against >uch a tremendous sen

It  would appear  that certain of the
European nations—notably France and
Russia—are " spilin' for a muss.'   The
oh! dent, don't •   of  Germany   and
England only spurs them on under the
impression that any sacrifice  will   be
made  rather than  fight.     But in this
they may deceive themselves ; a point
may be reached which the non-bellicose
powers are waiting for, when these bullies will get all they desire in the shape
of hard knocks.    Our despatch at the
end of last week contained a report that I THE
Russia had outbid England for an alliance,  and Turkey was going to range
herself  on  the   side   of   Russia and
France.    Which would imply, that the
lamb  was taking sides  with the bear
against the faithful watchdog.    We are
not inclined to believe any such rumor.
That Russia would make any promises
likely to please the Sultan, wc are prepared to  believe,   but,   that   Turkey
would   wantonly   commit   suicide  by
throwing herself into the jaws of the
monster who seeks to devour her, is
simply incredible.   'ITiat for some favor
hid tnd rdftelved she-might pretend' to
to do so, is possible, or, she might de-
tire to squeeze better terms from England.     Turkey must know as well as
palpable facts can inform her, that Russia has no object beyond her destruction under present circumstances, and
France would take no interest in her
welfare unless she had an understanding
with Russia as to her share ofthe plunder.
Par/ant pour la Syrie wonld be a very
popular tune in France and would help
General Boulanger better than the cry
(> Berlin which turned out A Paris in
1871.     It may, however,   be only a
little by-play in order to draw the stolid
German Chancellor out of his shell.
Then, again, the despatch may be only
the invention of the London despatch
makers who are compelled to supply
the public taste for something sensational.   The stories in relation to Bulgaria
are of the most contradictory description.     One  venion  makes the   Bulgarian people almost  a unit in opposition to Russian influence and another
would lead us to believe that the whole
Bulgarian army is ready to serve Russia and betray the fatherland,     This
latter view is just possible, because by
giving the Bulgarian officers and soldiers
the same or higher grades in the Russian
army and liberal immediate bribes, they
might be induced to believe what their
consciences tell them is mere falsehood.
But it would be a most economical way
fjcusantry could offer no resistance loan
armed force, their own soldiers being
all opposed to them.    The year is wearing to a close and fighting, except in
the case of fomented civil broils, may
be deferred till next spring, but we cannot imagine that it can be longer delayed.     The war party in Russia have
been warming up the pan-Slavists to
boiling point and the Czar knows that
it would be impolitic and even dangerous,  to attempt to repress the feeling
thus produced.    In France Boulanger
for his own purposes has been inflaming the popular mind with the promises
of immediate war.   To disappoint the
French people after working them up to
pitch  of enthusiasm would completely
destroy Boulanger's popularity and at
whatever risk,  he will take care not to
lost that   So far as the other powers
are concerned,  they simply want   to
place Russia and France in the wrong
for disturbing the peace of Europe.   All
are ready for the fray, but England and
Germany assume the virtuous and counsel peace and the conduct of good
neighbors, a result which they do not
expect.   There can  be no doubt that
Ruttia hu liberally paid agents throughout   India   who are doing their best
among the natives to get up a disturbance.   As in all cases, the dupes will be
sacrificed and the lives of many well-
meaning but easilv deceived Hindoos
or Mohammedant, will pay the penalty.
The object is to compel England to
send the bulk of her small army to India in order to take it out of the way.
In this she will fail because her little
devices are easily understood.   If there
was any chance of her success in India
it would be completely neutralized the
moment she approached Turkey, so far
as the Moslem population is concerned
as they would enlist to a man to fight
the enemy of their faith the White Czar.
They were awfully annoyed in Beaconsfield's time when they were sent home
without fighting,  but they are likely to
have all they want, next spring.    As to
the evacuation of Egypt by the British
that, of course, is out of the question.
" A bird in the hand is worth two in
the bush " is an old but a very true
saying.    If England were to abandon
Egypt, it would be simply to allow it to
fall into the grasp of France, a consummation that will never be permitted by
England.     The control of the   Suez
canal—bad as it is—is too important to
British  interests to be allowed to fall
into other hands.   There is, as yet, no
equally good, alternative route to India,
■II M-, -BS
and although the Sultan may pretend to ]
demand the evacuation of Egypt in or- j
der to secure a good  price for it, lie j
really cares very little about it, as it is
now forever  beyond his control.    He
may some day, be glad to seek it as a
place of refuge when he will be only too
glad to be defended by British bayonets.    We think that this last, will be the
true solution of the Egyptian question,
when the great struggle for Constantinople takes place.

Within the last few days we have met
with  unmistakable signs of the determination  come to by the family compact in this city to maintain their hold
on the public  offices, by securing,  if
pottible, the representation of this District at Ottawa, by one of themselves.
Such a prostitution of representation in
favor of a clique, would be a real misfortune for this City and Distiict even
if the clique referred to,  was endowed
with superhuman virtues ; but, void as
it is, of every liberal and social sentiment, narrow-minded, selfish and hypocritical ; assuming all kinds of disguises
to deceive the public in order,,,*M,piofit
by their  gullibility,   it  behoves every
elector,  no  matter  what  his religious
tendencies,  ideas of temperance or occupation,  to unite for the  purpose of
thwarting this   vile  conspiracy.     We
learn that while soliciting votes the most
shameful and unneighborly insinuations
were cast on a possible candidate who
they think may endanger the supremacy
of the family compact here.     His supposed religious belief was attacked, his
occupation held  up to scorn, and himself presented in what was thought to be
the most damaging colors.    Now, we
have had no communication or conversation with the  gentleman referred to
and, therefore, know nothing of his doctrines or political  banings; we know
nothing about his  proposed tactics in
respect to the election and whether he
intends to administer a tit for tat in relation to personalities,  but this we do
know that if he is inclined to respond
to the clique style of electioneering, he
has plenty of material at  hand which
can be turned to account with crushing
force.   The American  system of electioneering  makes the candidate a butt
for all the jibes, jeerings, misrepresentation,  slanders  and  inventions of  the
most damaging kind.     This has now
become the   fashion   in   the   United
Sutefu.a-i _bat. Jte,fkiH'|Ja-fc.Wikf^
agents are  always taken  with a large
modicum of salt and  are not of so injurious a character as people unaccustomed to this system of political warfare, would be inclined to think.    It is
far otherwise  here.    The communities
are small  and every particular relating
to every man's  life,  who has resided
any time  a.nongst  us,  is   pretty  well
known and  may be  used  with  most
cruel and damaging effect.    In point of
fact every one here may be said to live
in a glass house and  cannot afford the
risk of throwing stones at his neighbor.
Wc commend these facts particularly to
the attention of the clique so as to prevent any irreparable injury to that firm-
, ly united body.    The clique has hitherto,  managed  to exist and flourish ip
this city, not  from any merits or talent
possessed  by  the body or any of its
members, but  simply from  the  petty
jealousies  and  spite harbored  by one
towards another,  amongst  the outside
community.      Members of the clique
have been allowed to take the precedurc
and have been  elected to offices for
which they were intellectually unfit, because Tom  had a  spite against Jack
and Bill, owing to paltry family squa-
bles, was down upon Sam.    1'rom thc»e
mean discreditable reasons, the clique
has been allowed to fatten and grow
rich at the expense of this City and
District; wc say expense,  because the
slow progress of this City has been entirely owing to the obstacles thrown in
the way of its advance by members of
the clique,  who were afraid of competition and feared that the advent ot enterprise would  destroy their  monopoly
of the good things.    They have Iain on
this City like a nightmare and improvements of every  description have not
been made with their assistance, but in
spite of them.    It is well  known that
the clique was doing all in its power to
assist John  Robson in destroying this
Cityf"r with the object  of building  up
Vancouver on its ruins.    It is a great
pity that the advocates of temperance
should allow themselves to be used by
the clique as a means of bolstering it
up ; if our temperance friends are wise
they will shake themselves clear of the
clique because*the strong feeling of animosity towards it,  entertained by the
whole outside community, even by those
who from unworthy feelings, support it,
must create a strong prejudice against
those most laudable societies, associated
with the object of promoting temperance.   It is clear,, then, that for self-
preseivation the electors must unite to

the great Subranj* or Conttitutinnal Cun-
vention, which will chouse a ruler, hav* resulted in an overwhelming victory fur th.
null-Russian parly. Theae events prove
thu sincerity of Bulgaria's attachment to
Alexander of Batttnberg, uhich, neverthe-

Auttriat firm declaration that hia friendt
should have fair play.
Very different waa the situation before
the Magyara had aucceeded io convincing
the Vienna Government that dignity and
interest required it to make kuown thtt
Europe would not unction the Czar't brutal
interference with the rights of a free people.
Up to that time there was grave reason to
apprehend that Kaulban, however unheard
of the inn j u t tours hit action might be on the
part of a diplomatic representative, would
in the end compass his purpose, either
through a uew military coup d'etat, or by returning to the Gnat Sobranje so large a
number of bi* partisans at lo render the
selection of an anti-Ruttiau ruler impracticable or inexpedient. Karaveloff, a member
of the Regency, who had been looked upou
aa neutral, weut over quickly to the Russian
side, snd became a zealous advocate of complete submiuion. The other Regents, feeling that they had no well wiaher among the
European powers, and knowing how constantly disaffection wat fomented by the
porteuttoua moral ascendancy of Russia and
the lavish use of Ruuian gold, dared oppose
only meek remonstrance to the brazen contempt for their own authority and the law
nf nations evinced by Kaulbars, and had begun to nervously debate whether their public
duty and their personal safety did not alike
auggest a compromise. Though they had
a hundredfold more provocation, they did
not venture to treat Kaulbars as the United
States treated Genet; they did not even aak
for hit recall; they complied with some of
bis demands, hesitated to proceed with the
trial of the conspirators, and even stooped
tn negotiate with Zankoff, the contriver of
the abduction, who ought long ago to have
keen hanged. Zsakoff would at this moment have a share -n the provisional government had he not, with the effrontery of a
lackey sure of his master's protection, refused to accept leu than two seats in the
Cabinet for his accomplices.
Thst the Panalavic fanatics in Moscow and
St. Peteral a-g expected to make thort work
of their opponent! iu Bulgaria is plain from
the lensational report published in a Ruuian
newipaper, that the garrisons of Shumla,
Rutbchuk, and other fortified townt nf strategic value had pronounced against the
Sophia Regency. The story was cabled to
this country, but we paid no heed to it, believing thst it conveyed only a dishonest
hope and not a fact. Thit turnt out to have
been the case j there wat a plot to suborn
the garrison nf Shumla which at the outset
hsd sume promise of success. But the first
tignt of diitffectinii on the part of a few
bribed or deluded officer! were sternly
quelled, and the army, at a whole, teems
ttill as steadfast in its resentment of Muscovite encroachments at it showed its.If from
ths time of the Prince's abduction up to his
second and vnluutary leavetaking. But the
culminating proof of the abject collapse of
the Kaulbars machinations is fumiihod by
th* reotontbly full return! of the Ute elections, by which ittppeart thtt the adherent*
of the Stambulnff tnti-Ruttian party will,

amusing to watch th* winged hunter and to
tee him outwitted by thn long honied aheop.

In a few ran th* Tobacco plain* will be

the magnificent tceuery, bnt those whe came
to lire at esse In the •olitudu hav* dii-
oorsivd that the nil it rich aad that a
variety of crops may he produced by tkilful

called "the Tobaooo plain*" I* rathar

At Josephs prairie—bnt, Joseph1! prairie
it no more. John, Jim, and Bob Galbra'.th
are all gone, and their farm it now owned by
Lieut-Col. Baker who know* how to ute the
plough u wall u tba tword. In hi* barn
yard there i* a forett of stackt, wheat, eat*,
and barley. He 1* popular, and wu lately
elected to reprnent th* district. The people here uy he I* an honoriibl* man and
therefore cannot he trusted by th* thlevei ;
he I* an sble man, and therefor* he I*
lreaded by th* ulf-Meker*. Smith* of
Victoria wu heie trying to coax him but it
wm aa ute. A British Colonel will always
do hi* duty. H* must have been surmised
wben he looked for an hour at th* Prime
Miniiter who wu a -ommercisl traveller
and is an uneducated man, witb very littlo
brain*. Tha local houte will be a comedy
for the Colonel.
And hero, close by the Colonel'* residence,
we htvo tbe custom houte, aad the collector
i. O. Norrit, I* a real celebrity, In 1858 he
wu the bearer of a potition to Her Majetty
from the people of the Dominion; they
wiihed to aee the heir apparent, and they ae-
lectori Norrit to be the bearer of the petition
and invitation to Hit Royal Highoet* the
Prince of VVtlet. NorrU went over to England and paid hia own oxpeniet ; he laid the
Ktition at the foot of the throne, snd th*
.minion wu honored by the vitit of the
Prince. Now, I verily believe the Dominion
Government it only a four-penny affair. See
how they rewarded thit man chosen by the
nation to reprnent the people before Her
Majeity. They banished him to the wild*
of Kootenay and they gave him a ulary
that would not be accepted by a teamster.
In fact they conden,..- .1 him to penal servitude because he served th* nation. I believe he I* an Irithmtn, and I am told that
he ia a social hospitable host who invite* hit
friendt occuionally to hi* cottage whtre he
1* thoroughly at home when he propose* the
health of H*r Majesty and the rest ol the
Royal family. Hit loyalty wu not killed by

tb* Government departments here. Tb*
object of thia annual industry la to inform
Congrett what each departuMot hu been
doing during the year, and what work it it
hoped will be done neit year. The evolution
of an annual report of an executive department it an InUreating process. Moat of th*

and oocuionally tbe Prctident prepare* it

ol President Hsyet had little originality.
They were largely made up of abstrecU of
department reports, with a diiciiaaion of a
few ipecial tubjecU. Preaident Arthur
wrote the greater part of hii menage himself
and Mr. Cleveland doe* the ume. The
President a meaaage it no longer, it it claimed
ot much consequence in directing legislation,
except u it may be Uken u the announce,

whioh he it the representative.
Mr. Cleveland's lut reception wu one of
the largest ever hold is tot east room in

wu a Urge escurtion from North Carolina.
On* old gentlemen approached th* Pretideut

It may not be generally known, that of
all tha foreign legations rctiding here, the
Britiih it the only one that own* IU legation

Minister Romero now intends to build a
houu to be uaed exclusively by legation!

The Japanese legation renU a bright red
brick building jutt acrots the street from
tbe houM sncreUry Lamar hu recently
leased. The Chinese legration occupies one
of the moot conspicuous houut in the city.
It la a rather tawdry and tumble down
failure, known ai Cutle Stewart. It wu
built for a private residence by the rich
California ex Senator, but it wu never
Hniahed, and had remained unoccupied for
years. Of lata the Chinese Minister rented
it. Chinamen are very fond of parki, and
when there ia one near, thsy ire slwsy* to
be fonnd there, looking In open eyed tur-
prite at the unusual lights of thii strange
country, Th* Chinese of the legation her*
are of the gentry and nobility of the Flowery
Kingdom, sod both in drees, manner, and
appearance they are very superior to the
laundry Chinamen, so frequently seen.
