THE MYSTERIOUS WIDOW.
Dttrimr the summer of 1811, the
Biitish hnil luid claim to ali Unit por
tion of tho district of Maino lying east
of the Penobscot. Shortly before the
arrival ot the Einrlish nnuailion, Com
modore Tucker had been sent arouud
to Penobscot liny to protect the Amer
ican coasters and while the British
sailed up to CiuAiue, he was laying at
It was .i schooner that tlio Comnio
doie commanded, but it was a heavy
one, well manned and armed ; and she
carried the true Yankee "grit" upon
her deck, of which the enemy had re
ceived from them rather too many
proofs. On tho morning of tho SJSth
of August a messenger win bent down
from Belfast with the intelligence that
the British feared him, also that Sir
John Slicibrook, of tho British ship
had offered a large amount for his cap
ture. The schooner's keel was just cleared
from the mud, nnd one of Uie men had
been sent upon the what f to cast olt iho
bow-line, when :t wagon drawn by one
horse, came rattling down to tho spot.
Tho driver, it rough looking country
man, got out upon the wharf, and then
assisted a middle-aged woman from tlio
vehicle. Tho lady h first inquiry was
for Commodore Tucker. He was
pointed out to her, and she stepped up
on tlio s.'hooiier's deck and approached
I tl in.
"Commodore." sho asked, "when do
you sail from litre '!"
Wo pail right off, as soon as possi
ble," ho answered.
'Oh, then, IMotow you will bo kind
to mi'," the lady urged, in persuasive
tones, ".My poor husband died yester
day, and I wish to carry his corpse to
Wisoasset, where we belong, and where
his pruuts will take caro of it."
"Iiul, my goad woman, I shan't go
to Wiscasset "
"But if you will only land mo at tho
mouth of tho Sheopoot, I will trouble
you no mote. I can easily lind a good
boat theio to take mo up.'
Where u tlm bodyf asked Tucker.
"In the wagon," returned the lady,
at the huiio timj raising one corner of
her shawl to wipu away tho gatheting
tears. "I have a sum of money with
me, and you shall be paid for the
"Tut, tut, woman ; if I accommodate
you, there won t bo any pay about it.

pieced her gratitude, and remarked
that befoie she retired sho would liko
to look and see that her husband's
corpse was safe. This was, of course,
gi anted and the hatch was lifted that
she might go down into the hold.

Tucker smiled nt the man's quaint
earnestness and went into the cabin.
When the woman came up from tho
hold sho looked about the deck of tho
schooner for a few minutes and then
went aft. There was something in her
countenance that puzzled Carter. Ho
was one of those who hail objected to
the colliu being brought on board.
The woman's eyes ran over thu
schooner's deck with' a strange quick
ness, and Outer eyed her very sharply.
Soon sho went to tho traffrail, and then
came and stood by tho bttmaclo again.
"Look out, or you'll jibe tho boon,"
uttered the passenger.
Carter ttai ted, and found that the
mainsail was shivering. He gave the
helm a couple ot spokes aport, nnd then
east his eyes again upon the woman.

"Commodore," said Carter, with a
remarkable degree of earnestness in
his manner, "is tho 'oiiinn turned in?"
"I rather think so," said Tucker,
looking at the compass. "Look out,

"Why, Dan, you seem greatly inter

"So I am, Commodore, an' so I am

"lVhaw 1 you're as scared ns a child

"No, not a bit. Just hark a bit. That

Tho Commodore was thundcrstrtiuk

few minutes ho called one of tho men
to relievo Carter, and thon went down
to look after his passenger. The latter
had turned in and seemed to be sleep

to otic side.
"No noise, now, Carter, follow mo

Tho two approached tho main hatch
and stopped to reach it, when Dan's

to have been pinned up tinder the break

As soon :h ho began to rise above the

Last week tho United States court,
111 W ashington, issued a bench war
ant lor tho arrest ot exfceiiator
Dorsey, This must bo a pleasing fact
for tho republicans to contemplate. It
was only somo lilteen months ago that
a dinner was given in this city to this
samo Uorsey, as a testimonial ot tho
efficient manner in which he had
proad tho greenbacks over Indiana for
ho election of Garfield and Arthur.
On Unit occasion republicans of high
degree, stalwarts anil half-breeds com
bined, vied with each other to do
honor to this king among ballot
bribers. To him they owed tho suc
cess of their ticket and tho renowed
opportunity of another four years'
least at tho public crib. Why should
they not havo assembled to do him
honor? Why should not Chester A.
iVrthur nnd J. Whilelaw lleid havo
raised tlm flowing bowl to his valor?
Garfield owed his election to his work
and tht was enough forlieid. Arthur
was raised to tho vice presidency by
his hand, and that was a sufficient
pretext. But behind all this there was
another tale. Dorsey was commended
for tho manner in which ho had hand
led tho republican sinows of war.
Thoso sinews of war had been ob
taincd from Brady and his colleagues,
who now, with Uorsoy, are indicted as
conspirators and public plunderers.
under these circumstauces it must bo
a pleasant reflection for Chester A.

Dorsey as tho man wlto accomplished
his election, and that tho money which

IIow Prize-Fighters Die.
Ben llogan, tho reformed pugilist,
lately told n Chicago News reporter that
prize flgliU rs die prematurely of weak
ness and disenso brought on by their
injuries. In fact, they die ator before tlio
timo when, if thoy had not been prize
fighter?, they would havo been nt tlio
prime of life. Charley Oallager died
nt tho age of 80, of coiisuihption,
caused by nn injury received in his
fight with Davis. Davis fell on him
planting his kneo in his upper left
breast. Brandy bears tho blamo of
killing Tom Saycrs, but in my opinion
he died of injuries inflicted by John C.
Ileenan. Ilecnan jumped oil a train
nud hurt himself, and some lay tlio
blamo of premature death on the acci
dent, but ho died of consumption, pro
duced, in my opinion, by over-training
and by the punishineut ho got in fights
with Saycrs and Kin. John Morris
soy's deatli is laid on llright's disease,
but ho stood boating enough to kill ten
men, nnd I bclicvo that is what killed
him. Yankee Sullivan is said to have
been killed by a vigilance committee,
but tho truth is that Tie went crazy from
ittie injuries to his head ho had received,
and committed suicide by opening an
artery. Pntsy Jtiordun, ono of the
grandest men physically that over lived,
died at !!0 years of age, a complete
phjsical and mental, wreck. Bod lliddlc

Preservation of Iron.
A novel way of preserving the sur
faces of iron has just been discovered.
Tho treatment is as follows: Tho iron
is subjected to the action of diluted hy
drochloric acid, which dissolves the iron,
and leaves on tho surface a pellicle of
homogeneous graphite, which adheres
well to the surface of tho iron. The
)ieco to bo preserved is next treated,
in a hydratuically closed receiver, by
hot or cold water, or, better, by steam,
111 such a manner as to completely dis
solve and remove the chlorido of iron
formed. Finally tho piece of iron is
left to dry in tho receiver, from which
ul htiiiid has been removed. A solu
tion of caoutchouc, gutta pcrcha, or
gum resin in essence of petroleum 19
then uneaten. Un tho essence being
evaporated, there remains a solid en
amel like coat on the surtnee 01 the
iron. Instead of previously eliminat
ing the iron salt, it may bo utilized in
lorming a kind ot vitreous enamel, r-or
this purpose the iron is immersed, after
treatment with tlio acid, inn bath ot
silicate and borate of soda. A very
pure and brilliant silico-borate of iron
I. r , ...i-i. ..1 . I. ., r
is ioruicu, which ciuses 141 ihu 'ui-.-s ui
the metal. As to tho disengaged chlorine,
it combines with free soda, forming
chlorido of sodium, which remains dis
solved in tho liquid. Thus tho impor
tant question ot tho preservation of iron
appears to havo been brought another
step toward solution.
