less Japanese vessel which had been
blown off the roast of Japan from the
entrance to the Hay of Yeddo during a
typhoon. Their account of the disaster
is that the storm occurred on tho, ninth
of December last. They lost their
masts and rudder and had been drifting
at the mercy of tho winds, they knew
not where. After their own provisions
were exhausted they subsisted on their
cargo, mostly liean* and dried flsh, and
such rainwater as they could catch
during tho six months which had
claimed since tho typhoon occurred.
They had burned most of tho small
woodwork, doors, Ixirths, windows, etc.,
of their vessel for fuel, and were on
short rations, forty lieaus per day for
each man being tho allowance. Their
fire, when put ont from time to time,
they had rekindled by rubbing two
pieces of wood together. They had
given up all hope of ever seeing land or
anything human again, when, on Satur
day, the twenty-eighth of May, about
:WH) miles from the Hay of Yeddo and
Yokohama, they sighted the Peking on
the wide waste of water. Captain Perry,
in answer to their signals of distress,
bore down and sent one of the lioats off
with an ofllcer and tho doctor to exani

tho poor souls were soon landed on our

Fact* About hahara.
Dr. Lx nz, in a recent lecture at l'aiis

generally-received notions as to the
condition of the Sahara. It really
forms a great plateau, alwiut 1,100 feet
alxrvi- the level of the- Atlantic. In no
part of this plaN-au is there to Ix> found
that depressing Wlow the level of the
ocean which is shown on the maps of
certain geographers, and which has led
to wild schemes of converting the Sa
hara into a great inland sea. More
over, tho Sahara is not one dead sandy
level, but really varied in its aspect.
Hocks arc succeeded by sandy plains,
here and there are oases covered with
alfa grass and tagnaiit shallow sheets
of water. The fresh water fossils, which
are met with in many jarts show that
the Sahara is not the lxittom of a dricd
up sen. Again, the tem|x-ratnrc is not
nearly so hot as might l>o expected. In
short, the Sahara is not so bad as it has
been called ; wild beasts arc rare, and
the most formidable enemies to lo met
with are the Tonraeg trilies, who, ac
