passengers were earnestly engaged
over the quiet game of checqers, or
draughts, while 'one little circle only
were engaged in that: old, butnow
popular game .of chess.. A..:large
number.of passengers were sitting in
the forward saloon, gazing listlessly
at each other, apparently in stupefac
Being of an active temperament,
and fond of excitement, we could' not
suffer ennui. upon such an occasion to
get the: tipper hand of us, so with a
view tokick.ing up some - . kind of a
rumpus,for our own sake and the
relief of the passengers generally, we
walked boldly into the captain'soffice,
and laid the whole matter before the
"We have - no music on board," the
captain remarked, or we might wake
the passengers up with a little "hop
on the light fantastic."
"Well," we replied (looking ear-.
.nestly over the list in the
roll)'"we must have . sonie excitement
for the passage is really wearisome."
Just at that moment, our eyes fell
upon a name distinguished in the an
nals of ditibleris—no less a personage
than the celebrated wizard and-ven
triloquist, Signor Blitz, Here was
indeed reason for crying "Eureka,"
and forthwith, we proceeded in search
of the mysterious wizard. In a few
moments, the Signor was found, qui

a little harmless fun, as he termed it;
but the sequel proved it more funny
than harmless. But, without antici

obtaining someof his little animate
assistances, he . announced himself
prepared; but remarked that we

entered the forward saloon noiseless
ly, arm in -arm, and advanced toward
the quiet,. sleepy-looking passengers,
who, were collected together without
aim or object. While running our
eyes rapidly around the saloon in
search of a victim, our attention was
attracted towards a young man dress
ed in a deep suit of black, who was
deeply absorbed in a book, which he .
was attentively perusing.
We "nudged" the Signor; pointed
significantly at the young man,' and
received from the. former an affirma
tive answer, by a quiet movement of
the head. The Signor picked up a
stool, seated hiniself unceremonious
ly between the young stranger, and
the end of the table near by. This
movement arrested the attention of
the stranger who looked up inquir

The whole attention of the passen

speakers,,and considerable interest
manifested by the company in the
peculiar : subject under. .discussion.
Signor (lifting the young gent's
hat from his side, and passing it un
der the eyes of the entire group,)-:-
"I do not wish to offend yea, sir, but

at the expense of the stranger, which
soon increased to a laugh, as the wiz

The stranger, bit, his lips in confusion
and fixed his .gaze.upon the Signor;
then, with a mac, got up from his

Again the Signor was seized with
that periodical idea a wasp, and
brushed in vain with his hand to
rid himself of ' the little' tormentor.
Several of the passengers attempted to
catch the refractory wasp, but each
attempt proved futile and the attacks
.of the insect upon the Signor soon
became a portion of the general a
musement for the passengers, the
buzzing of the wasp' producing as
much fun as any of the wizards won
During all this time, the features
of the stranger remained placid,
though his brilliant eyes flashed, and
gave evidence of no small amount of
mischief lurking within. The ven
triloquist having failed to affect the
stranger, he resolved to try again,
apparently determined not only to
bring down the- boat but to , bring
down the stranger also.
Signor (stepping up to the strang

favorite air, with a chorus "In, tot 10l

to come from the mouth of the young
stranger. So complete was the de

shouts of applause at its conclusion,

Union prisoners and refugees, has
furnished us with the following in-'

There were on board the steamer'

and eleven offi.cers of the 56th Illinois'
regiment, who had been mustered
out of service and were on their way

Pennsylvania artillery ; one hundred'
and fifty-seven' escaped and paroled'
Union prisoners ; sixty seven mate
refugees, and fully one hundred re- .
fugee women and children, on their
way North. Besides these were two'
commissioned, officers and eighteen
enlisted men of the 99th New York,
acting as a guard, making in all ris
