WAY BACK IN 1814
. PERIOD OF THE SECOND WAR WITH
1u Queer History from ma English
Nowipupcr A British Chuckle Over
the Fact That the People of Nantucket
Welcomed the Royal Navy.
k copy of The Courier, a London Journal
of the date Thursday, Sept. 29, 1814, re
cently found its way into the New York
World ofllco. The Courier was a four pngo
paper, and cost thirteen cents. The num
ber iu question is larsa'7 filled with news
of the conflict with the United Suites of
America. Tho capture and destruction of
the city of Washington are reported, which
achievement is spoken of as "juBtly mer
ited British vengeance." Tho flight of Mr.
Miulisun and his ministers to some un
known hiding plncc. they having probably
thrown themselves on the mercy of the ab
orlgiucs, forms the subject of the only ed
itorial in the paper.
It is always an agrecablo task to remind
the New Englandcrs that they appreciated
the pecuniary advantages of helping their
country's enemies during tho war of 1812.
This letter from the English paper, tell
ing how the people of Nantucket had
agreed to supply the liritish ships with
provisions and to abstain from hostilities
agalust them, serves the purpose very
Place I wrote you on the 20th tho whole
island baa been In an uproar. The British brig
Nlinrod, -Captain Newton, came up and an
chored Just outside the bar yesterday after
noon; a lieutenant cume on shore with sixteen
men in a barge, with some kind of mission to
the selectmen ; they tarried till near dork and
returned. We knew nothing of the nature of
this proceeding till this forenoon. The select
men and two or three of tho principal inhabit
ants went down in two boats with flags at
about 11) o'clock. In about an hour they re
turned with Captain Newton and several of
his officers; tho captain went up into the hall
' of the upper office, whereabout 150 inhabitants
were assembled and delivered to the modera
tor of the meeting a paper containing sundry
proposals. Previous to his arrival, however, a
letter was read la tho hail, which was brought
by the Ninirod from Commodore Ilotham.
dated yesterday, off Gardner's Island, on board
his majesty's Bblp Superb. This lettet stated
that tho vice admiral (Cochrane) had received
the communications of the magistrates of Nan.
tucket requesting relief, and representing the
inhabitants to be in a state of starvation, and
that he had sent the Nimrod to inqulro into
the truth of the statement.
The paper handed by the captain contained
proposals to this effect, viz.: The inhabitants
of the island shall declare themselves neutral,
and continue so during the war. They will be
allowed to import from the continent fuel and
provls.ons In a small and limited number of
vessels, which are to be licensed by the British
commodore. All government property, if any,
shall be given up or destroyed, such as artillery,
arms, ammunition, etc. (There is none here.)
The inhabitants will not be allowed to carry
on "their fishery" (I presume he means the
whale fishery); they may export as well as im
port such articles as will not pay a duty to
government oil and candles, I presume, pay
no duty. Should any of his majesty's vessels
arrive here they are allowed to take whatever
provisions and supplies thoy may want, not
distressing the Inhabitants therefor, paying
for the same. A deputation of the magistrates
or selectmen are to proceed hence to the
commodore in Gardnor's bay tomorrow, if
possitue, to conclude the treaty.
This evening at t o'clock the inhabitants
met In the opon street near the town house,
that building being too small for their accom
modation. Tho proposals of tho British com
modore being read they passed tho following
resolutions nem. con.: L We will not bear
arms against his Brlttanlo majesty during tho
present war. 2. We will deliver up all publio
property on the island. 8. We will not oppose
any British vessels which may arrive here for
provisions, etc., such as may be spared without
distressing the inhabitants paying for the
same. (This vote was originally expressed
thus, by recommendation of a Democrat, "We
will supply the British vessels of war with
such provisions as they may demand," which
being opposed by a Federalist, was modified as
it now stands.) 4. A committee of four of the
selectmen and magistrates shall proceed
forthwith to the British commodore to ratify
the agreement. 5. This committee shall con
sist of Joseph Chace, Zcnus Coffin, Josia Bar
ker and Aaron Mitchell (two Democrats and
1 The following la the editorial article
which speaks of the flight of Mr. Madison
and also makes some valuable and disin-
jtercsted suggestions as to the course the
Americans should pursue:
The place to which Mr. Madison and his min
isters have fled has not been accurately ascer
tained. We have Boston papers to the id lnst.
and Now York to the 1st, but not a word Is
mentioned relative to them. One would have
supposed, unless their fortitude has totally
forsaken them, that they would have issued
some proclamation, calling upon the people to
arm and not to give way to despondence. Bnt
no Insolent aid boasting in prosperity, thoy
seem to be mean and panio struck in adver
sity. They remain in their hiding places, and
each state and city Is left to its own guidance.
The consequence may be that some of the
states mar separate from the rest andsoek
their safety in negotiation with our com
mander. Baltimore is reported to have made
proposals; Nantucket, a small Island belong
ing to the state of Massachusetts, bad, even
before our success at Washington, made over
tures to Blr Alexander Cochrane, which had
been accepted, and she Is to remain neutral
during the war. The wholestateof Massachu
setts would be glad to have the same benefit
conferred on it.
In the midst of this severe calamity this In
delible disgrace to the American arms, an
army of 8,000 flying before a force of 1,JU and
suffering their capital to be taken and de
stroyed without resistance, one party recom
mends immediate peace and the other an in
stant change of men and measures. Peace
they may make, but it most be on condition
that America has not a foot of land on tho
waters of St. Lawrence1. Our Canada frontier
must be secured by an extension of territory;
the Americana most have no settlement on the
lakes, for If they have good harbors on the

nearly all the minds that hare
changed the course of affairs in
the world for centuries have been

times of fast travel, but every

lakes, well fortified and supported by a set
tled country, thoy will never want for ships at
tho breaking out of any war. But it is not the
harbors on the lakes alone which are essential
to the security of the Gonad as. On the Amerl
can batik of the St. Lawrence, between Sack-
ett's Harbor ana St. Regis, there are a bun
dred positions, which, by being fortified, will,
whenever the conntry becomes sufficiently set
tled, Insure a ready communication into the
heart of Canada.
All idea of renewing the treaties of 1783 or
l.'-'-l would bo tho height of impolicy, and the
Americans must distinctly and explicitly aban
don their now tangled principles of the law of
na'ions. Wo must hear no more of free ships
and free goods.
With respect f o a chongo in tho government
of the United States, it Is Impossible, wo think,
that Mr. Mndlsun can remain at the head of It.
"If Mr. Madison," says one of tho American pa
pers, "was a pati iotlo man, if ho was a gener
ous man, if ho was merely an honest man, he
would resign; bo would give to his country the
chance, at leant, of such a peuco as men not
hatoful might procure; he would give to his
country the advantages of such a war as men
of real talents, supported by the confidence of
the nation, could prosecute. Lit Mr. Madison
resign, and the publio sentiment would be
united. Let admuitarallon be in tho hauds of
Itufns King, DeWitt Clinton, John Morshul,
Anrou (,'den, James A. Bayard, and we shall
have either a good peace or a war which shall
gratify our prido if It does not advance our
prosperty. But while Mr. Madison is seated, a
ureodlul Incubus on tho vitals of the nation,
there can be no hope either of an advanta
geous peace or a vigorous war."
"""" Women Not All Alike.
One of the constitutional opinions of the
average man is that women are nil alike.
It crops out in his speech perpetually,
toiuetimes iu the way of kindness and sym
pathy, oftener In the way of derision and
contempt. When a wife has forgiven some
great wrong done her by her husband,
when a mother has sacriilced herself for
her children, we hear, "It is just like a
woman." We hear the same thing if she
has deceived her lover or involved her
father in debt. This dissent is due to the
fact that some men are sentimentalists
and that more men are cynics. The formet
arc always praising woman, the latter are
generally sneering at o decrying her; but
both think that she has only one nature.
The sentimentalist believes her to be good,
gentle, loyal, truthful under every circum-
stance; the cynic pronounces her bad,
harsh, Inconstant, hypocnticul on instinct.
Neither is wholly right nor wholly
wrong. Sahe is good and bad, gentle and
harstl, loyal and inconstant, truthful and
hypocritical, llcr qualities depend largely
ou the individual, and tho individual
varies with mood and environment. She is
not cut out of the ideal, nor is she drawn
from debasement. Sue is primarily human,
as man is; a compound of bruin and body,
of strength and weakness, of generosity
and sellishness, of charity and prejudice,
of altruism and egotism, of affection and
aversion, bome women are far better,
some women are far worse than the mass,
but better or worse, they are fundament
ally unlike one another and often unlike
themselves. Junius Henri Browne in La
dies' Home Journal.
Character iu the Uandshake.
I form my estimate of a man the moment
I shake hands with him. If he frankly
gives me his whole hand and with it a cor
dial grip, at tho same time looking me
fully in the eyes, I would not hesitate to
lend him money or appeal to him for aid if
I was in trouble. Men who shake hands
that way usually meau what they say.
They are manly men, big hearted, brave,
brotherly and will do to bank on. The
man who reaches out his hand as though
the exertion worried him, and lets it lie in
your grasp like the nipper of a def uuct cat
fish, is the kind of creature who sits up
nights to plot petty treasons. The man
who shakes hands with three fingers would
steal from himself if he knew how.
Whenever I reach out my hand and find
that it has closed down on three fishy
fingers I instinctively look to see if my
purse is safe. The uiau who grabs your
hand and pumps your arm up and down as
though it was the handle to a hand car is
usually a well meaning fellow, but is sel
dom troubled with a plethora of brains.
The ladies also reveal themselves in the
handshake. There is no danger of mis
taking the shy yet magnetic touch of na
tive modesty for the icy salute of unfeeling
formality. No woman who shakes hands
as she might touch a dead mouse ever
played much havoc with masculine hearts.
Interview in St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A Mew Kind of a Wheel,
It is proposed to obviate, by means of a
Bimple arrangement, the jolts and jars and
vibrations common to vehicles when driven
over rough roads or street pavements when
ordinary wheels of rigid -construction are
employed. Surrounding the outside of the
periphery of the wheel, and in close con
tact with the tire, are a series of independ
ent springs, which form the outer tread of
the wheel; these springs are so arranged as
to work in conjunction with each other,
andj when moving under a heavy load their
free ends are sprung in toward the rim,
and coincide with the true or working peri
phery of the wheel, the springs not coming
in contact with the plane until the spring
is nearly under the center of gravity.
In this way tho spring resistance is used
in sustaining the load, and not in retard
ing the movements of the wheel, the
springs, after paasing the center of gravity,
exerting a force against the plane over
which they are passing to force the wheel
ahead, thus making, as it is claimed, a
wheel that is not only easy riding, but easy
propelling as well. New York Sun.
The Leverage in a Screwdriver,
It is sometimes supposed by persons im
perfectly informed in mechanics that a
long screwdriver gives greater "leverage"
than a short one. This, however, is incor
rect. The action of a screwdriver, the
pressure on which is direct, is not in any
way analogous to that of a lover. The
superiority of a long screwdriver rests
simply on two facts first, you can gener
ally get a better grip of a long screwdriver
than of a short one and can bring the whole
weight of the body and strength of the
arms to bear on it, and second, the torsion
of the iron in a long screwdriver comes iu
to supplement tho force employed. The
only way in which leverage can come iu is
in connection with the breadth of the point
of the screwdriver, and even this counts
for nothing beyond the breadth of the head
of the crew. Brooklyn Eagle.
The Practice of Borrowing Books.
The practice of borrowing books is es
sentially an evil one in those who can
afford to own books, and public libraries
serve to encourage and foster the evil,
though they are of very great value to the
poor student. We think that upon general1
principles people should own the books
they read. We believe heartily in buying
books, reading books and keeping books,
hut not in borrowing books. As a refer
ence a public library serves an admirable
purpose, and in many instances it is of un
doubted advantage to the people. But one
who would be surely profited by books
should own them If he can and should
have them for companions continually
about him. Chicago News.

THE JOHNSTON ISLANDS.
Tama and Inquisitive Birds' and Many
Colored Fishes Found There.
In 1SC8 Melville Attwood, themining en
gineer of this city, visited the Johnston
Islands, in the south Paclflo.v He went
there in company with two companions to
Inspect the guano and other resources for
a New York company.
"That trip was attended with novel fea
tures," said he yesterday, "and I have ever
siuee had occasion to remember it. L. L.
Louderback and another man, whose name
I have forgotten, were with me. We could
only get within about three-quarters of a
mile of the islands in our steamer, the
waves broke so roughly. Besides this an
innumerable number of turretlike white
rocks stuck up all around near the shore.
"Our vessel couldn't make a landing,
and we got out and I went ahead in a
whaleboat. There wasn't a soul on either
Island. When we touched at an old broken
wharf a myriad of wild birds flow out.
They were of all colors and were the most
curious collection I ever saw.
"The Kanaka sailors commenced to fish
right away, but they had to look awful
sharp, as the birds would grab the fish be
fore they could get it from the line. The
birds weren't afraid at all. They Just
hopped and flew and walked around right
among us. They were of all kinds, sizes
"I found tho largest island was from a
half to three-fourths of a mile long and al
most as wide, being of the general shape
of a frying pan or, more correctly, of a
Norwegian snowshoe. There were three
feet or more of guano lying on fine coral
sand, but above the guano again there was
probably ten feet more of the white coral
sand. You couldn't get it out. It would
cost too much. The other island lay about
three-quarters of a mile away mid was a
little smaller. Practically the same con
ditions surrounded it. Tho islands rise
about 80 or 100 feet above the ocean. A
kind of coarse grass or weed about a foot
high grows over the top.
"There isn't any water at ail, and I don't
think the Islands have any value except
for a cable. Not ono of thenj would do for
a coaling station because the coal would
have to be conveyed both ways in lighters.
"One thing that attracted our attention
was the variety of fish. Like the birds,
they are of all kinds and colors. The wa
ters flash with them and give forth the
most beautiful effects. The best fish is the
"The birds were not satisfied with nab
bing up the fish from the Kanaka lines as
they came up out of the water. They sur
rounded us everywhere we went, examined
us as something curious, and chattered
away about us.
"I went forth with my tapeline to meas
ure the big island. As the line streamed
along the birds took after it and concluded
they would eat it. They made a dive here
and there and gobbled it up. They were
ell around me and I couldn't do anything.
I had a big Brazilian knife with me that I
always carried in those days. I got it out
and clipped my way right and left, cutting
their heads off. I don't know how many
of the birds I killed, but a whole lot.
"Of the curious tropical birds there were
Rome with only two long tail feathers.
They were singularly beautiful. The
Kauakaa pulled them out right and left.
I have some of them yet."
The Johnston islands are about 800 miles
southwest of Honolulu. San Francisco
White Winged Blackbird.
The white winged blackbird consorting
with the red winged seems to have beeu
observed by too many persons to permit an
explanation ou the mere theory of albino
ism, extensively as that freak in "colora
tion" among birds and animals is seen. A
correspondent of ours, who is a good ob
server, makes an important statement
when he says the white winged specimens
are smaller than the red winged. That
circumstance would seem to indicate a dif
ferent species. Possibly there is an error.
At any rate, we will give the explanation
of an observer who has watched the phe
nomenon of the white winged blackbird
with some persistence.
He says the white spot on the shoulders
or upper wing is due after all to the
curious effect of light reflected from a
ruddy surface when the wing is at certain
angles. In other words, it is a deception.
He claims to have followed this out and
proved it. It seems to be a fact that the
red placo on tho blackbird's wing does
change its appearance decidedly in certain
aspects during night; but we do not pre
sent this theory ns a conclusive explana
tion of the appearance. Hartford Times.

Curious Wilis. ' '
The most curious and perhaps tho most
spiteful will on record is that of Queen
Austrigilda, consort of King (iontram,
Who by her noncupative or verbal testa
ment enjoined her husband to slay and
bury iu the same grave witli herself the
two physicians who had attended to her
majesty during her last illness. Scarcely
less vindictive was the will of the selfish
husband, who forbade his wife to mnrry
a second time, concluding with tho threat,
"If she disobeys me I will come again if I
can." Quite at the opposite pole' of senti
