I Proaa th. New York Harald l
After nearly twelve months of anxious
ansponae, during which the gravest fears
were entertained for the safety of the
gallant African explorer, the welcome
news has at length oome that Hcorv jf.
Stanley, the special coiniuiaaioner of the
New York Herald and the London Tktity
Titegraph ha* arrived ou the west coast
of Africa after a terrible journey across
the continent along the line of the Lu
laba otherwise the Oongo river.
Stanley's dispatch is dated from Em
bonia, Oongo river, weat coast of Africa,
August 10, aa.l informs us that he ar
rived at that point on August 8 fnwu
Zanzibar with only llfi aoula, the entire
party in an awful * condition after their
long and terrible journey through the
heart of the African' continent. After
an arduous march of many days through
a eouutrv tilled with difficulties, and
being compelled to transport ou the
shoulders of his men every pound of
provisions aud other stores ueooasarv for
the transcontin<ntal journey, and besides
carrying in a similar manner the section*
of the Lady Alice exploring boat and the
arms and nrqjnunitiona of his party,
Stanley found himself brought to a stand
by immense tracts of dense forests,
through which all attempts at progress
were futile. Finding that lie could not
advance along the liue he had first in
tended to follow. Stanley crossed the
Lnalslva aud continued his journey along
the left bank of the river, passing
through the district knowu as northeast
I'kusn. Ou this route he endeavored
to find an outlet westward, but the jun
gle was so dense, and the fatignes of the
march so harassing, that it seemed im
possible for him to succeed in passing
the tremendous harrier of the forest.
To add to the horrors of his position in
these Central African wilds Stanley
found himself opposed at everv step by
the hostile caruibal natives. 'The sav
ages filled the woods, and day and night
poured flights of poisoned arrows on his
party, which killed and fatally wounded
many of his men. From everv tree and
rock along the route the deadly missiles
winged their fatal course, and the heavily
laden bearers fell dead under their loads
in the dark forest. Only now ami then
could Stanley and his men reply to this
silent fire with their rides, for the sav
ages kept under the densest cover and
rarely exposed themselves.
Stanley s march through these cannibal
regions soon became almost hopeless.*
There was no cessation to the fighting
das or night. An attempt at camping
merely concentrated the savages and
rendered their fire more deadly. The
advance was a sucee--sion of changes in
rude skirmishing orvter by an advance
guard, whose dutr it was to clear the
read for the main body. A rear guard
covered in like manner the retreat, for,
although advancing against one enemy,
the movement was a retreat from an
other. All Stanley's efforts to appease
the savages were unavailing. Thev
would listen to no overt area, disregard
ed all signals of fr.endship and of mild
ness of intention and refused to be paci
fied with gifts. The patient behavior
of Stanley's men they regarded as cow
ardice, so thit no course remained open
to the explorer but to fight his w>- 1-
ward and with as little loss as p. e.
To render Stanley's position still mere
deplorable his escort of 140 natives,
whom he had engaged for the service at
Nyangwe, refused to proceed further on
the journey and deserted him. They
were so overawed by the terrors of the
forest and th continuous struggle that
they believed destruction was certain to
overtake the whole party, and prudently
resolved not to he destroyed. Finding
that his ranks were thinned by the de
sertion of the Nyangwe men the hostile
natives concentrated for a grand attack
on Stanley, with the object of complete
ly erusiiing hici. "* It became necessary,
therefore, to organize a desperate re
sistance, which was happily successful
so far that it repulsed the savages for
the time being and gave the explorer a
chance to reconsider his plans and make
arrangements to adapt them to his try
ing situation.
There was only one way to escape
from the hapless position in which Stan
lev now found himself, unless he ac
cepted the alternative of returning to
Nyangwe and abandoning the grand
work which he had undertaken. This
was to make oae of canoes. With the
Lady Alice aa a last reliance, and good
canoes for the party, Stanley concluded
that he could advance with a better pros
pect of success than in any other way.
Although he had a decided advantage
over the savages on the water Stanley
still found that each day's advance was
bat a repetition of the straggle of the
day previous. It was desperate fighting
all the time while pushing down the
river with might and main. Fortunately
it was still the rifle against the bow, bat
then the bow was covered by the dense
woods and the rifle was exposed in the
open canoe. In the midst of these suc
cessive struggles Stanley's journey on
the river was interrupted by a series of
great cataracts, not far apart from each
other and just north and south of the
equator. To pass these obstacles he had
to cut his way through over thirteen
miles of dense forest and drag his eigh
teen canoes and the exploring boat Lady
Alice overland. This enormous labor
entailed the most exhausting efforts, and
the men had frequently to abandon the
ax and drag-ropes for their rifles to de
fend themselves against the continuous
assaults of the hostile natives. After
passing the cataracts Stanley and his
party had a long breathing from
the toil of dragging their boata through the
forest. They were also comparatively
secure from attack and took measures to
recruit their exhausted strength before
again encountering the dangers of the
journey westward.
Although fighting his way continuously
Stanley did not neglect the objects of
his journey, and found opportunity to
note all the interesting changes "and
physical characteristics of the route.
In order to avoid the struggles with
the tribes of desperate cannibals that in
habited the mainland on each side of the
river, Stanley's canoe fleet, led by the
Lady Alice, paddled along between the
islands, taking advantage of the cover
they afforded as a protection from at
tack In this way many miles down the
stream were made by the expedition un
molested by the natives. But this safety
from attack was purchased by much
suffering. Cut off from supplies in the
middle of the great river, starvation
threatened to destroy the expedition.
The most extreme hunger was endured
by the party, which passed three entire
days absolutely without any food. This
terrible atate of tilings ootild not be any
longer endured, so Stanley resolved to
meet his fate on the mainland rather
than by hunger on the river. He there
fore turned his course to the left bank
of the Lualaba, and, with the singular
good fortune that has generally attended
him, reached the village of a tribe ac
quainted with trade. These people liad
four muskets which they obtained from
the west coast. They represent, in a de
gree, the advance guard of civilization
toward the interior of the continent.
They called the great river Iknta Ya
Congo. With these friendly natives
Stanley and his party made" " blood
brotherhood " and purchased from them
an abundance of provisions, which were
sorely needed by the famished exploring
Alter a brief rest Stanley endeavored
to continue his course along the left
bank of th e river. Bat throe days after
his departure from the village of the
friendly natives he came to the country
of a powerful tribe, whose warriors were
nrmed with muskets. Here for the first
time sinoe leaving Nyangwe Stanley had
to contend against an enemy on almost
an equal footing as to arms." He, there
fore, prepared his party for a struggle
the issue of which was aeeidely doubtful.
No sooner did these natives discover the
approach of Stanley's expedition than
they manned fifty-four large canoes and
fut off from the river bank to attack it.
t was not until after three of bis men
were killed that Stanley desisted in his
efforts to make the natives understand
that he add his party were friends. He
cried out to them to that effect and ot
tered them clothes as peace gifts. But
the savages refused to be conciliated.
and the fight-proceeded with unabated
fnry. For twelve miles down the strug
: gle went on, and it proved to be the
greatest anil most desperate tight on this
1 terrible river. It WHS maintained by
Stanley's followers with gmit courage,
and was the last save one of thirty-two
battles fought since the ex|>editton hod
left. Nyangwe.
1 Stanley s losses during the long and
terrible journey across t..e continent
from Nyangwe have been very severe.
The continuous fighting in the forest*
and on the river reduced the strength of
the expedition daily until it Iv-eame a
question whether any of its members
would ever reach the \>ust. Stanley
states in his dispatch: "My grief ia
still new over the loss of my last white
assistant, the brave and pious young
Englishman, Francis who was
swept over the falls of the Mnssnssa on
the thin! of last June." He adds: "My
faithful companion, Kalulu, is also
among the lost," On the saiui' day that
Pooock was lost Stanley, with seven men,
-werealmost drawn into the whirlpools
of the Mowa Falts, and six weeks later
himself, with the entire crew of the
Lady Alice, were swept over the furious

There are seventy thousand chances
to one against an individual'* te

there seems to be a half a milium
chances agama: a timid lady a having
her terrors realized, according to the doc
trine of chances. If she lies down in
her fright, a* she is likely to do, ou
either a feather bed or hair mattress,
these chances in her favor are multiplied
to at least a million.
Another consolation is that she has
little to apprehend from a flash of light

light travels 227,2(50 miles in a aeooud,
and lightning only 1,142 feet in the tame

seconds or six beats of the pulse elapse
between the liglituing and the thunder,
the discharge is a mile off.

Differences in People.
There is a vast difference in people.
However moralists and metaphysicians
may class tliem, there are opposite
points among the most similar which
are broad contrasts—sweet and sour,
winter and summer—or any other pro
• verbial antithesis. To some folks the
leaves of a forest are all alike, and a
school full of boys presents only so many
fao-similies of each other. Such person
ages regard all mankind as so many bi
peds ; of the difference between them
they are scarcely conscious.
Some people soothe one like a strain
of mnsic, while others agitate every
nerve with the irritating power of a dis
cord. How much might be said about
the difference of people in their charac
ters and actious. There are those who
turn pale at the sight of cheese, and oth
ers who shndder at the mention of car
rots ; this one prefers hard eggs to soft,
and that one does not like buckwheat
cakes. These marks by which some of
our race are distinguished from the rest,
' are but few of those which crowd the
mind. There are people who actually
detest children ; these who never have a
moment to spare and those who don't
know heir to get through the day. Your
touchy people who are always pricking
up their ears to catch the first faint
sound of an insult, and your people
without humor who can never either
furnish a joke or understand one. There
are two causes of the great difference
perceptible in people. Much may cer
tainly be ascrilied to education, but
much also too institutional dissimilarity.
Here is one on whom good music acts
like enchantment; he cannot sit still
while hearing it; his eyes fill with tears:
he forgets all his troubles, and when the
tune has ceased it is still in his mind,
bursting out at intervals in fragments
and exclamations, and keeping him
awake in the night by its busy mental
repetitions. Who shail say that his na
ture is the same as that of "another who
finds in the Italian orchestra only a dis
agreeable scraping, whose lips" cannot
hum, whose imagination cannot contain
a tune ? And thus on through life and
in every day intercourse if we but ob
sereve a litte carefully, we will scarcely
ever find two people alik?—even those
pursuing the same avocations and united
by the closest ties, are oftentimes the
most dissimilar in their natures."
A Russian General.
The Plevna correspondent of the Lon
don Time* writes : Major General Bcol>-
eloff is a character—one of the most
striking men I have ever met; he is a
son of Lieutenaut-General Scobeloff, of
the Russian army, ami has been in every
campaign the Russians have had mince
he was old enough to enter the field.
In Khokaud, where everything was
considered in a critical state, young
Scobeloff was left to cover the rear of
the army with five battalions and twenty
gtuis. His elders in rank and years had
selected him to bear the disgrace of the
expected catastrophe; but he did not
fancy this situation of affairs, attacked
the enemy (numbering forty battalions)
m the night, threw them into a panic,
and utterly routed them, remaining mas
ter of the province. For this he was
made a major-general at thirty-one, and
became the object of much envy and
calumny at the hands of the officers
whose heads he had passed over.
At the recent battle of Plevna he had
his brigade of Cossacks and a battalion
of infantry, the latter numbering aliout
seven hundted men. Three hundred
and forty of this battalion fell in the des
perate contest, one hundred and seventy
of them being killed outright; unsup
ported the remnAnt were compelled to
fall back, but they retreated in good or
der, bringing away all the wounded, and
actually, left the deadly line of battle
singing one of their wild but very melodi
ous mountain airs. A major-general, thir
ty-three years of age, tall and handsome,
Scobeloff is the ideal of a benu tabreur
of the old Mtirat type. Brave almost to
recklessness, yet possessing a certain
shrewd aptitude for estimating chances
and the strength of position.
He will make his mark in this cam
paign should his carelessness of personal
danger not-bring him before some fata!

six times during his career. Having

coast of Africa. He porticipit*ted with
credit to himself in the last war with
Kussia, and was present at the fall of
Halaktava. Becoming averse to beiug

one winter and wit* employed during
that time by tleueral Solly in a service
that was at once delicate ntnl reapouaible,
which he discharged to the entire satis
f act ion of his commander. From St.
Paul he went to Kansas, and there al
ternately engaged in driving teams an.l
bnffiiio hunting. From 1860 to 1 865 he
was an Iffflinu fighter ou the frontier* of
Kansas aud Texas, and in an engagement
with the ml men on an occasion in
which the whites were victorious, after a
bloody hand to hand fight, he is said to
have kilhvl seven warrmrs with his pistol
and bowie knife. During this period he
spent some time in Missouri, aud was at
Independence during tleueral Price's
raid. lu 1872 he went East, attracting
much attention, hut exploits having pre
ceded him. Hi-* companion* were W.
F. Cody, kuowu a* Hnffalo Bill, and J.
B. Oiuahundra, alia* Texas Jack. In
1873 he was the bearer of important dis
patches to General Harris, in Cuba,
which he safely delivered. Returning,
he came West, where he has since Invn
engaged in trapping, hunting and acting
as guide for foreign tourists. As an
evidence of the man's wonderful accuracy
in shooting, and it must be said also of
recklessness, I will give two remarkable
instances : In Portland, Oregon, he hod
a friend, John O'Madigan, now of this
city. While O'Modigou was walking
along the street smoking his pipe, and at
a distance of teu feet, and at about a
right angle. Bill suddenly drew his pistol
and fired, the ball taking the pipe from
the mouth of hi* friend, but doing htm
no harm. Again, last fall. Hill was iu
liake City with deer for sale, and seeing
his old friend O'Madigan passing up the
same street, on the opposite aide, he
called to him to stop. When he hat!
drawn his revolver John did so, facing
hitu at the time. Bill fired, aud the ball
}>A**ed thro.igh the top of the hat of his
friend. O'Madigan, iu the best of
humor, called out: " Bill, don't shoot
any more; it is too cleae." The history
of this remarkable man will at some
future timefilloneof the most imp 'riant
chapter* in a book of romance.— Denver
A Governor'* Gratitude.
Probably the oddest genius who ever
occupied a public position iu Missouri
was the late Robert M. Stewart He
lived in St Joseph, where he rose in po
litical power.' The first president of the
Haunioal and St. Joseph Railroad, he
was called its father. Ho was elected
governor in 1857.
When Doniphan's expedition was
organized to go through New Mexico
and co-operate with the main United
States army in 1847, Bob Stewart was a
member of a company raised in Buchan
an county. Four days out his gnu was
accidentally discharged, the contents
entering one of his legs, shattering a
bone and disabling him. One of the
company, William Grover, was detailed
to remain with Stewart. Grover watched
over his friend with thecareof a brother,
•vnd Stewart, not then dreaming of his
future distinction, said : "Bill, old fel
low, I'll pay yon back some day ! The
time will come!"
Ten years later Bill Grover, the friend
of Stewart was arrested as a participant
in a political crime, tried, convicted and
sentenced to the penitentiary for ten
years. Not long after his conviction,
Stewart was nominated for governor. He
saw his friend just before he was incar
cerated, and said: " Bill, the first thing
I do after I'm inaugurated will lie to
pardon you out. And I'm sure to be
• Bob was elected and inaugurated.
True to his word and the native instincts
of gratitude, he went to the penitentiary
and inquired for Bill Grover. He was
not there. He was one of detail called
out to dig a well in Jefferson City, and
was then engage*! in that work.
Off the governor posted to the well
in which Grover was at work. On reach
ing the place, he leaned over the well
and cried oat:
" Bill, are you there !"
'' Who's that?" asked a voice from the
snbterraneau deeps lieiow.
" It's me—Bob Stewart! Come up
out o' there ! I've pardoned yon."
In a few minutes Grover was hauled
up out of the well. Then was exhibited
the curious spec tar! • of the governor of
a great State walking through the streets
of the capital arm-in-arm with a stripe
suited convict. He took his old friend
up to a clothing store rigged him out in
a new suit, and made him a guest at the
governor's matiHiou, afterward providing
for him a start in business.
A Bold Exploit.
Tin* following is from the diary of the
late Mr. Adolpnus, the barrister and his
torian: " May 8, 1840 : We had adiuner
party, among them Mrs. Matthews and
Cumui, who told sn amusing story of an
agent to a noblemnu in Ireland. It was
known to some ruflians in the neighbor
hood that he had collected a large sum
for rents due to his emplover. In the
middle of the uight he heard thieves
breaking into his house. He jumiMxi
out of bed, and arming himself with a
carving knife stood behind the door, and
closed it, so that only one oould enter at
a time, which one would be shown in the
moonlight while he remained in the
shade. Four of tisn thieves entered,
and were dispatched one after another,
those without not knowing what hail
happened. The fifth saw the gleam of
the blade in the moonlight, seized the
man, and a tremendous scuffle ensued.
The agent struck several blows with his
weapon, but made no impression. He was
grit down and his antagonist over him,
when feeling the knife, lie found the point
was bent. He bad the presence of mind to
press it strongly against the floor, so us
to turn it back, stabbed his adversary
dead, ami, as he was alone in the house
and could have no assistance till the
morning, retired to bed. He wua
knighted for the exploit. Some one
said to him: ' I wonder you could go to
bed while there were on the floor the
corpses of five persons whom you hod
killed?' His answer was: Itiiidmake
me very uneasy; I oould not get a wink
of sleep for nearly an hour!' "

with tia. In going from the depot to the
cam no leas than aix Mormons put their
arms around him. Some even kissed
him. Hrigliam Young was feared, but
his son John \Y. will and has made him
self Moved. He will not tight. AU
strife will now end in Utah. Polygamy
will gradually die out. John W. will let
it die, but the Mormon church, with its
'200,000 followers, will stand.
" VVe double once in seven years," the
Prophet said one ilay.
"How double once in seven years?"
I aski-d.
•' Why in 1849 we had 12.000 people.
In 1856 we hal 24.000; in 1883 we had
48,000; in 1870 we had 98,000, and to
day in 1877 we have 192,000."
" And in 1883 von will have "
" Two hundred and eighty-four thou
sand, and nothing hut a national calamity
or a judgment from Clod can atop us,"
said the Prophet
There is no doubt in my mind that
under the conservative policy of John
W. Young, with the death of pologamv,
that the Mormons will number 284,060
iu 1883, and that they will control the
politics of Utah, and perhaps of Arizona
and New Mexico.
Population of Asia anil Africa.
The eutire population of Asia in larger
l>y about twenty-five million* than the
estimate given in last year's issue of
Hehm ami Wagner's work. Tlie increase
mainly falls upon the East India inlands
and Anam, the llgnres in the cane of the
hitter being more than double those
given in the tables ot last year—viz.:
21,000,000. The population of British
India is rather leas than last veur, tw
ing 188,0911,700, that Iturnnifi ls'tng
alvnit 2,760,000, including triluitary or
pn>t-ctsLStab-s. The whole imputation
of British India is close on 239.000,000.
In a map of India, which accompanies the
work, the varying density of the imputa
tion in India is shown, from Ore inhabi
tants to over 750 per square mile. The
greatest density is found,of course, atamt
Calcutta, as also in patches nil along the
east coast and over all the northwest
provinces. The population of China is
given as 405.000,000. with 38,500,000 of
outlying people. Hong Kong swin to
have di'creasod by upward of two thou
sau<) since last year, the number now
given being 121,985. Japan is set down
fts 33,299,014. With regard to Africa,
the {Kipuiation of Algeria was, 1875,
estimated to lie 2,448,901. Tin 1 imputa
tion of Egypt shows a slight increase
over last year, being now 17,000,000
The inhabitants of Port Haid now number
9,050, and of Fsmailia 3,779. Many de
tails are given concerning the area and
population of the Soudan ami Central
ami West African States, the results of
recent explorations. The British pos
sessions in Sonth Africa show an increase
of territory and imputation, the tatter
numbering, according to the latest date,
1,338,702. According to the latest sta
tistics, the whole population of Australia
amounts to 1,867 000; of New Zealand,
421,326. In the Fiji islands the native
imputation seems to l>e rapidly decreas
ing. It is calculated now not to exceed
70,000, while the white, who in 1872

He Sat on a Lion's Tail.
Daring a recent visit to the Phila
delphia Zoological (tardea we witnessed
an amusing incident illustrative of
Yonng America's love for adventure says
a correspondent. In the rear of tfie
lion and tiger honse targe rages are con
structed, where the animals coins out at
pleasure to snu themselves. On this oc
casion, as we stood admiring two fine
specimens stretched at full length on
the sandy floor, ouo so near the bars
that its tail extended through, and lav
on the grass ontside, a hoy approached,
in advance of his mother and sister,
and, no sooner did he see the lion than
an idea seemed to strike him, for with
one bound, and before his mother could
stop him, he was sver the low rails, and
quickly approaching tho lion, sat down
on its "tail. But he had not long t sit,
for in a twinkling the lion Kprnng to its
feet and made for the boy, who bnrely
escaped a stroke of tho pswerful pnw,
by turning n back sumcrsault. The
mother stood speechless, as the boy ran
shouting, " Well, I don't care. I'll
have it to say I sat on a lion's tail."

excess is always criminal.

would give one of the lords a nickel.
The bird w .nild then hop off to a basket
near b_v, ami pick up a little envelope in

Gen. Gordon hammed the wisest-looking
canary he could set* it nickel, and awaited
the result. The bird returned with an
etivelojie, which the senator opened. It
announced thst the senator " talked bat
much, had five children, and would live
to lie eighty-six years of sge." Col.
Alston determine*] to hare his fortune
told. The tirst clause was this : " Yoo
iuvitc too many people to your hoose ;
many of Unsn* you invite are not your
friends." The printed slip went on to
recite thst the colonel would in a short
time receive a large aum of money as an
inheritance, and that it would lie the
basis on which he would build a definite
prosperity. He folded the scrap of paper
IU his isickrt and went to Willkrd'a,
where he met Judge Lochrane. On
showing the )>aper to this gentleman, he
wns interrupted hy the exclamation :
" Why, my dear sir, your fortune is al

was any kin to John 11 Alston, of

hiu 1 left a large fortune to lie'dividiwl

that lie was not a<> lucky, ami a<on after
ward went to Georgia. A few days ago,
however, he received a printed Copy of

heirs of the estate. The will bequeathed

A Curious Surgical Operation.
A hoy unmod Prank Hauafin. who had
bettn injured in a sawmill here, and had
been, as we might say, alnioat skinned
alive, was supplied with a new akin
by taking pieces from the anus of eight
or nine other boys. In the aocidcut a
very large wound w * made in his back,
the surface lieing one mass of red, quiv
ering flesh, though healthy iu appear
ance. Tlie wound, of course, was very
sensitive, and the o]M>ration must have
Iveen quite painful to him. l>ra. Picot
and Msyuard and au assistant tierformcd
the operation. Around the lied weie
gathered six or eight Irish boys, from
eight to fifteeu years of age, from whose
arms had lieen taken, or was to be tak
en, the skin needed to replace that
which was lost. As each was calhxl on
by the doctor, he came forward, and
I wring his arm, s small piece of skin was
skilfully cut out with the lancet and
gently placed nj*m the raw flesli. About
thirty pieces in all were so put on. Sev
eral of the bora gave up more than one
piece, and Folger Picot, the doctor's
sou, contributed eight piece*. A young
er brother of llatutfiii's gave nearly as
many. While the ope rati u was going
on the Isiys joked among themselves on
helping to make up lianaflu, and ban
tered caeh other on the number of times
they hail submitted to be cut into for
' the"benefit of their plavmate. Ttie boys
were generallv very willing to give the
skin required, but after a while they
evidently lx-giut to tluuk enough was
ns good as a feast, and they moved out
doors, watching further operations
through the window. It is thought,
however, that enough will conseut to
give skin, so that Hanafln's wound will
Im> entirely covered over, thus hastening
his recovery, and adding to his comfort
when the wound shall have healed.—Au

A ltcmoniac Procession.
A correspondent of the Loudon frnei
at Itagusa writes : I have just returned
here from Trebinge. While there I was
sitting conversing with the English
surgeou attached to ttie hospital, when
he ''served : " There is not much to tie
sei-u .ii this place, but fortunately to--lay
I am able to show vou a sight you never
see in Eugland. Come along and lot us
have a look."
We started for the Hazoar, a short
distance off. At the end of the principal
street we encountered a procession of
150 children, none of them over twelve
years of age. The two in front earretl
what seemed like two standards of some
sort, but which, on a nearer approach,
turned out to be two human heads stuck
on pole* altont a yard aud a half long.
One was the head of a man in the prime
of life, apparently about thirty-three
years of age, with a black mustache and
it I ward of some weeks' growth. His
head was shaved after the manner of the
Itosniaks, with the exception of a long
tuft oti the crown. The other was a mail
much older, about fifty-five years of age.
His face was thin and clean shaved, his
head was also shavisl save the same long
tuft which filiated in the wind.
Kontul tliis ghostlv sight tlie children
itaiicetl and yellesi like demon*. After
thev had paraded all the street tliev
stn k liiem on a wall opposite the pasha s
residence and subjected them to every
species of insult, each boy advancing in
turn ami spitting on the heads and then
hurling some mud. They retired utter
ing horrid blasphemies. Duriug this
time the street was thronged with sol
diers, and I saw many officers looking on
with evideut pleasure. On expressing
niv disgust to tny companion he said :
"It was uothing; such Mights were rather
common in Trebinge."
In the Jaws of an Alligator.
At Lake diaries, in tlie parish of Cal
casieu, La., a few days since, a most ex
citing scene was witnessed by a number
of people on the shore. Home lads,
among whom was a ta>y named William
Haskell, were in bnthing, when the
attention of all was attracted to the ones
of the tatter, and an alligator wan seen
swimming in the direction of him. Tlie
little boy not perceiving the approach of
the saurian, dived, and jnst as he reached
the surface the open jaws r< ecived him.
The alligator drove his teeth almost
through the Imy's skull, making several
wounds in the scalp three inches in
length. The boy's comrades rushed into
tho water anil legon a loud outcry, when
the alligator let go his hold and disap
peared. The little fellow, although
