A FAI'EII FOR THE IIOiIK CIRCLE MILLUKIM PA..THURSDAY.SEPTEMBER 29.. 18S7. A FLIGHT. It was at CoiiHtuutinopln. \W foiinil our s< Ives ill a licet of sixty vessels, if all na tions. Ours Was the only vessel living the American (lag. The time bangs heavily when ships are waiting for freights or winds to start them Into active service. l'era had become dreadfully dull to us, ami we had done up Constantinople nnd'the surrounding country to our heart's content. With the exception of an occasional ditim-r at the consulate, there was no recreation to IKI had —no thea tres or o]kcrus. A dozen of us tried to swim the ltosphorus from the point from which llyrou was said to have started. Ho must have accomplished his feat iu the summer, for we signally failed in the attempt, owing to the temperature of the water, and were glad enough to Is- taken 011 board our Istats before wo got half way. Our only resort was a hotel which was kept by the wife of the captain of the port, who was in exile for murder. She was a true type of Grecian beauty, a native of Athens, just such a uersoti as the hard who swam so well would immortalize ill verse. Be tween the hotel and the landing where we took our Isiats for the ship was a distance of about three-quarters of a mile. Most of the streets were guarded by gates, which were closed at night, when no one was al lowed to ]iss —unless sailors, who with a few piasters, could bribe the guard to ojien for tliciu at any time. We never vent ureal to I>o out late unless we were a dozen or so strong ; then we would stilly forth, lantern in one liuud and pistol in the other, ready to defend ourselves against robbers, who tiid not hesitate to take life. The Turkish authorities took no notice of troubles aris ing among foreigners. The consuls were supjKised to care for the interests of their own people. I saw a Greek stab and rob an Austrian captain within twenty feet of a Turkish guard, who did not interfere, aud who allowed less interest than he would have shown at a light between two picks of dogs. The street which was our regular route to the ship hud a gate and a guard house at either end. Blank walls about twenty feet high extended some 500 feet along lioth sides of the street. Hehind these walls were the palaces of two of the grand pashas. We could only see the windows of the uje l>er stories : the magnificence withiu was left to our imagination. As we were walk ing past one afternoon one of the windows was suddenly thrown open, and there ap peared at it the most beautiful woman I hud ever seen. We were fairly electrified by lier beauty. She had defied a well known ediet in showing us her face, as we knew. Instantly as she appeared we saw her throw something over the wall, and then site closed the window. It was u note which she had thrown. We all rushed to pick it up. The prize was won by a Swe dish captain, who immediately |>ocketed it. VVluui wu arrived at the lauding the Swe dish captain invited me on board his ship. We I' d Ist'ii so intimate during our stay that tin* rest of mr |wio ~f fense at this preference : but how anxious they were to know the contents of that note ! I insisted that no gentleman could ask, nor would any divulge its contents, wliieh justly belonged to its captor. Once on Ito.ud, the note was opened, when an ag itation sized the captain which made him j appear to me like a lunatic. "Captain," be said, handing me the note, "you nre married, and circumstances have proved how much you love your wife. I am unmarried, and have fallen desjierately in love. Help me by your advice. What shall Ido ? My ship is ready to sail, and the wind is fair. Ido not own the vessel or cargo and therefore have no right to detain j her. Read, and tell me what to do.' As my own marriage had been very ro mantic, tlds atl'air was doubly exciting to me. The note was written in a govs! En glish hand, as follows : "I know you arc Christians, and will save me from this life of degradation. Kn tombed iu 'bis harem, from which there is 110 other way of escape, I apjieal to you in mercy to save me. God, I know, will open yonr hearts, give wisdom, and guide you to-morrow night to a silken thread thrown from this window, near where you found my note. To the thread attach your ans swer. Death awaits discovery." The night was spent in devising means of rescue. The captain swore upon the Bible that ho would marry her if rescued, and if she would consent. Jewels are most prized when n.ost difficult to obtain. 1 was in full sympathy with his feelings, ami when the day broke our plan of action had l>een determined. I saw that he was unfitted to go to sea, his head Wing entirely turned, and to case his conscience upon the point of his duty I pointed out that the interest of aJI parties would IH* served Wst. if he should defer his departure until the dark moon, whe.c the plan devised could l>e put into operation. This would necessitate a delay of five tays. Among our friends we wore to pretend that no importance attached to the missive which the ladj* h:ul thrown out. As a rea son for liis d4ay in not sailing the Swedish captain was to say that he luui discovered a leak in the ship's top side after he had load nd her, which made it, necessary to careen her for repairs. It required much tact to avoid the captains with whom he had been in daily company., aud to make excuses to stay ashore late every night. Wo stayed ashore to become well acquaints! with the guards, whom we thought we could induce, by appearing to IKS half drunk and by a lib eral use of money, to open the gates for us at any time. The first night wo half stag gered up to the gate, handed the guards 100 piasters and then showed them our empty pockets,whereupon they allowed us to pass through the gate, pointing to their hearts to assure us that 110 one should pass that way to molest us. Each of us carried the usual paper lantern to illuminate the way, and we were well armed with pistols and cut lasses. During the day we luul paced the distance from the gate to the spot where we might expect to find tho thread, and we now had but to pace off tho same number of steps in the darkness. During the day also we had not failed to show ourselves fre quently in tho street to let the prisoner know we meant to communicate with her. We found the thread and attached our note of reply, first putting out our lights to avoid discovery. Softly pulling the thread, we felt a gentle strain in reply, and the note was pulled up, to reach, we prayed, the liamls of her who so anxiously awaited it. On our return to the gate it was immediate ly opened when we had knocked and the guard had rccoguizod our English voices. Our letter to the lady contained the fol lowing : "The fifth night, counting from to-iimr row, wc will rescue you by a rope ladder. At I o'clock we will attach a strong line to tin* cud of your cord. I'ull this until the la<ldcr reaches yoit. The line will Item Hi - cicntly strong to ls-ar your weight. I'laee the line over a hook or ]Mist, but do not make it fast. We will hold the end, so fear not. The line will lie withdrawn after your descent, so that no one will discover the manner of your escape. There will Is: no moon. Before daybreak you will Is* on a. vessel under way for England. If you can devise any other means or have any sug gestions to make you can communicate as before ; we will pass nightly until we have some token from you. We are two who have sworn to save you. Oue of us will as cend to assist iu your descent if you desire it. May God, to whom you have prayed, nerve you to your task." The next night we received the following answer : "I will provide the ladder, which you will pull toward you by tho eord. I have a trusted eunuch who will assist me, as his life belongs to me. Think well of the dan ger. 1 have no right to place you iu jeop ardy. In case of discovery, a rojH! ladder upon you would prove your guilt ; you would be seized aud disjtosed of.iioue would know how except the headsman. Your crime and mine are punishably bv death. My life is nothing, nor would I be missed, but you have loved ones at home. Should you change your mind on the night ap pointed, G(sl have mercy ujon me ! 1 will not live to see the light of another day. I have often meditated this act. 1 have felt that God, to whom I have always nrayed, would deliver me, and that I would Is* allowed to thank him iu his sanctuary. If you do not find the cord, you may know that I have been betrayed. If all is safe, the eord will Is- weighted with a silken puree containing jewels to reward yoa an 1 to assist me in my esc.ip •. Should yon no' find this token, it will l- because 1 have keen discovered. Then is* 011 your guard against assassination. 1 shall not iook for you until the hour named.*' My friend, ('apt. 11., had fallen most des peratoly in love. I say desperately,beoauae he neither slept, ate or drank, nor would be give me any rest. It was reassuring to me to see a fellow so far gone ; I had thought myself the only oue who could lie so "crack ed." He was always at my heels, arid had become my shallow. I learned his whole history. The cause of his going to sea was the removal of a tiaxen haired, blue eyed schoolmate, who had l>een his beloved little friend from his earliest memory. Her pa rents had moved to Moscow, and thence, as lie was informed, to Odessa, from which port he had last soiled,w ith a cargo of grain for Falmouth for orders. At 1 idessa he had made the most searching inquiries, and learned that a family of the same name had gone to Alexandria about six years pre vious. lie had been, until our present ad venture remarkably quiet and diilident. He had told me that his diffideuce arose 1 ''-ii fin t *'•"* le was almost a woman hater, and that he never expected to be hap^ 1 py until he found his early love, whom he last saw when she was 11 and lie 12 years of age. His interest in the fair captive was doubtless aroused by the fact that she strongly resembled bis early love. The eventful night arrives!. I gave a supper at the hotel to allay any suspiciou- Supper was ordered for twenty, and was served at 11 o'clock, which meant an all night spree. Wine flowed freely, and luui its effect upon our frieuda. At 12 o'clock, by a preconcerted arrangement, a note was handed to me by a servant. I pretended that it had been sent by my second officer, and that it announced that my chief officer ha<l killed one of the crow. A|silogir.iug tor my sudden departure, I promised to re turn as si win as possible and finish the night. My friend, Cnpt. IL, insistid upon going with mo. 1 protested, but he was obstinate, and finally as the company insisted that it was not safe to go alone, wc two left in com pany. We arrived at the gate in our usual ap parently drunken condition, fed the guar.l liberally, and passed through. A few min utes later we returned and had our cigars and lanterns lighted,pretending that tho lat ter luul been put out accidentally. They were so ready in assisting us that we gave them another handful of piasters, and made them understand uot to allow anyone to fol low us. They earnestly promised and we started again, our hearts almost bursting with rapid pulsation. We found the cord ; R purse was at the end of it. So far all was safe. Running to the farther gate as quickly as jNissihle, we repeated our former strategy of brilies, and the guards promised us that while we were in the street nobody should pass tliotn. Tims we luul the field to our selves, with guards on either hand to pro tect us from inteference. We returned to the s|ot where the purse lay. It was readily discovered by reason of its brilliancy, being worked in gold and silver threads. A stout con! was attached to it.. We pulled gently upon the cord and drew down a ladder uuule of silk. The night was dark, not a star visible. Thus far eveything favored ns. We put u strain upon the ladder with both our weights to keep it from swaying, when sud denly we felt a heavy burden upon it, and in an instant a man in a white tunic sprang from the ladder and seized me by l<otli arms, muttering something I could not un derstand. Letting go his iron grip upon me ho took the captain in the same manner. Then he sprang up the ladder and disa]>- pcared. We were so taken by surprise that we could not have defended ourselves if occa sion had required it. Treachery or not we did not know but we stood at our post. Presently wo felt by tho strain on the rope that some one was again descending. This time it was tho lady herself. She sprang lightly to tho ground, and a moment later came the mail who had before descended. He was her faithful slave. He fell on his knees and begged to be taken with us. But this was impossible. He was to be reliev ed ly another guard a 4 o'clock, and his ab sence would have caused the discovery of the escape. She advised him to return, close the window, and let go the rope. She would not lie missed until noon, when it would be impossible to know during whose watch she made her escape. It might lie supposed she had committed suicide, as she had frequently threatened to do, and might have done, by tbowing herself into the ltos phorus through a trap iu tho floor of a boat house near by.

An wo heard foot steps rapidly approaching, and feared pnr- H.dl ir a meeting with street in trsu!cr*,wi* lust mi lime in reaching the gale. The guard up'ttc.l it immediately. The word " A merle HI" had a t-h.irm for them, espe cially as il \va.H follow ed by .1 h net fill of plan ters thrown at them when tint gate wan o petted. I presume they imagined we did It in our drunken fun, hut it was really to draw their attention from our companion. After wo had panned through I locked tin: gate and throw away the key. The guard* went too busy picking up the money to iteeil a thundering at the Kate after we had gone on. We did not roach our lKi.it* too noon,for we could hear muttering voice* and tramping foot close behind 11*. With muf fled oar* we pulled for tuy friend'* brig. We hud proceeded not more than fifty yard* from the *h<>ro when we heard our pursuers jumping into (mat* at the landing. Who they wore we could not tell, hut they had not the cu*toinnry light* with them to indi cate that they were hnnext citizen*. The ex treme darkness favored our flight among the many ve*ne|* anchored in the harlstr, most of which h;ul their anchor light* up. My friend'* vessel had two light* in the maiu rigging as a private signal. These were put out as soon a* Wt* reached thedeek. Entering the cabin We again saw the face of the lady. A* I have before s.iid she W.,h the most beautiful woman I Itud ever *een. I could not help feeling that my friend was not the handsome fellow that deserved to be united to such loveliness—yet the god* tnv ted Venus and Vulcan. The Bwtli*h cap tain was s|Mss ldes* with admiration. I act ed a* hi* embassador, and informed her how desjierately iu love he w;i*, and that he was determined to save her or lose his life in the attempt. She w.is now free to act for her self, Imt I w.is sure that if she married him she would hive a loving husband.

Tin? vessel mast be oit side of the harbor, I said, before daylight, and before sunrise Ik* well into the S<* a Mar mora. And so We parted. It wa* three o'clock when I reached my ship. Sleep w:i* out of the question. The events of tbe previous lew days w e re like a dream out of which 1 had just awakened. The consequence might have been serious to me. liut I was always ready for adven tures.and had been in many a predicament equally hazardous. 1 lived, as all young sailors live, 011 romance and daring. Tin* ! excitement of this occasion w.i* as exhil- j ar i.'ing to 111a as chump igtic is to the wine hihlx-r. In the morning I w.is visited by several of the captains who U.i-1 boen my guests o." the night before. They had felt some fear for our safety when they learned that a conflict ha<l taken place between the guard in the street we passed through and a baud of Greek robliera. Two of the robbers had lieen killed. These must have Juai via qru^iiftaavTlftt. -Q---m tin*! utmlol them, h:id returned and attackod the guard. They were overpowered ly a company of soldier* from the fort, who were making their rounds to relieve the gu ir I. Ofcmirm I knew nothing of what luid tsiconic of the Swedish captain. I assured tlietn that lie w- -tit sifely oa board and w.is to have stile. I at sunrise, an I that, as the wind v is fresh and fair I supposed he w; oif. 1 feigned attack of rheumatism as an excuse for not going ashore that day. The following day our consul, hearing I was sick, came on hoard. From him I learned one of the wives of a pasha of the army h:ul made her escape by the aid, it w ; is supposed, ot the Greek robbers, some of whom hail been cap tured, and would be executed unless they told w-iiere their companions ami the captive were to lie found. It was snpjiosed that she was held for a ransom. A rigid search was tu:u!e oil board all the Greek vessels, of which there were many lying iu the harbor, but, of course, the "missing lady w.is not found, I will here give the sequel. Nine years later, while 111 comm 1111 of the clipper ship Dieaduanght, arriving in New York one day I made f.ist at my usual berth at the foot of Rector street, when Capt. Hope, a Sandy Hook pilot, who was harbormaster at the time, lioarded my vessel and told tne that a Swedish brig was lying at pier *, and that her captain w.is very auxions to meet me liefore he sailed. Th* Constantinople episode had nearly passed from tuy mind in the exciting years that had intervened. As soon as our gang plank was hauled ashore a lady and gentleman came on board. I was standing on the quarter deck with some custom house officers and passengers. The lady, whoxu 1 immediately recognized, came forward and embraced me with much warmth, and the gentleman followed suit. The pleasure attending this happy meeting was sh ire Iby all who witneaaal it. It is needless to say that the piir were the Swed ish captain and the lady whom I assisted to escape from Constantinople. That truth is stranger than fiction is here exemplified. After leaving Constantinople their Joy was unspeakable ttjion discovering that they bad ltoen lovers in their childhood. She w.is the flaxen haired girl for whom my friend had pined so long. When they parted as children Iter family went to Moscow, where they re mained several years, and where she bad the advantage of an excellent education and be came a proficient linguist. Her great lasiuty attracted universal attention. She was courted by many, but *Oll hy none. Her father received the appointment of consul at Odessa,but gave tip this place aud migra ted to Alexandria, were he became a grain exporter. This frequently necessitated journeys into the interior of Kgvpt,and his beautiful daughter was his constant com panion. During one of these excursions t heir caravan Was assaulted by Arabs. The men were slaughtered and robbed and the women were disposed of atnoug the chiefs. She fell to the lot of ouu who sold her into the harem, when she wis rescued by us. When the pair arrived at Falmouth, after the rescue, they Were married, and sailed for Antwerp, where some of her jewels were disposed of to purchase ue brig which he commanded when they paid their visit to inj 011 board the Dreadnangbt. They had sailed together around the world, hut this was their first voyage to New York. Col. Graham, uow clerk of the court of common ple;is, was custom house oiliocr in charge of my ship at that time, and he lives to bear witness that 110 heard this remarkable tale told in ! my cabin by the Swedish captain at that | time.

These monsters are fruit eaters, and do not attack animal* at all. The early uuturaliats classed the bats with the birds, but their ability to fly is the only thing they haye in common with bird*.

The binder feet are supplied with stout claws, by which they also hang when at rest. The eyes of the bat are so small and bidden by hair, that it wss at one time supposed that they had no eyes, and "as blind as a bat" is a proverb still in use.

Some spelt l * of • like the Isiag-eared 15.il of I'luriipe, have enormous ears, and some l N cies have curious leafy appendages to their nose, which are thought to aid the sense of smell. Bats are noc turnal in their habits, flying at night with great rapidity, and whirling s bout with the ease of a bird, in their chase after night flying insects, ot which they consume great numbers. In the day time, they secrete them selves in old buildings, in caves, in hollow trees, and such places. In Tex as there are a number of churches which, when that State belonged to Mexico, were built by the missionaries among the Indians. These are now deserted, mod mom or less in ruins. We visited one of these buildioga that bad been taken possession of by lbs bats, which hung to the timbers of the open-work roof, and wherever they could get a foot-hold, iu myriads. Upon being disturbed, they would set up a tremendous chattering, and, al though it was daytime would fly about our heads in swarms. Some idea of their great number may be formed from the feet that their droppiogs cov ered the floor to a depth of three of four feet— American Agriculturist for October. Window Gardening. 'How do you manage to have so many beautiful plants V is a question often asked of successful window gar deners , and we fee! inclined to answer as did the doctor in the case of the old lady who bad been takiag too much medicine, that ali that is needed is, 'Light, and water, and air.' But there are so many things in volved in these three that it is weH, perhaps, to be a little more explicit. A window facing thesoath is the bent with a glass door or curtain to shot off draughts and exclude dust Sprinkling tiie leaves with a fine brush, if a syringe is not practicable, will help to keep the breathing pores open and healthy, which every plant requires. Injudicious watering often destroys plants. No rule can be given, but the first thing is to see tbev are kept moist but not saturated and that the water used is about tbe temperature of the room. For the green fly, and all oth er common insects, there is nothing so effectual as a mixture of helebore and soapsuds, to which is added a little kerosene that has been first mixed in milk,as it will notcombioe with water. All soft-wooded plants should be placed nearest tbe light; harder ones in the rear. In potting see that there is good drainage of broken pot* or any rough material that will not clog and sour tbe soil. Too much heat is often given, and many plants, as roses, azaleas, camellias, alovsia citriodory, the various lycopods, hyacinths and other bulbs of that sortwill thrive iu a roam without a fireif there is no frosL The best soil is one-third leaf mould, two-thirds good turfy sod, well-rotted, and a little sand added.tothe mixture. Fine manure is beneficial to gerani ums and to bulbs, but most plants thrive best in manure water Saxifra ga uubrasa and tbe Lysimachia num mularis are safe basket plants, wbile the ivies stand cool treatment;if given shade aud water. It is agreed that gas from a furnace is more injurious to plants than illuminating gas. but by proper attention to moisture and the screening of the window arid ex ! cessive hear, it is possible to be suc -1 ccssful iu window gardening.
