Ox Board the Steamer Batavia,)
At Sea, November 20, 1872.
To the lioyal Humane Society;
Gentlemen Batavia sailed from
Liverpool on Tuesday, November 12.
On Sunday night a strong west wind
began to blow, and not long after
midnight it increased to gale. By
4 o'clock the sea was running very
bigb ; at 7:30 onr starboard bulwarks
were 6tore in, and the water entered
the main saloons; at a late hour the
gangway on the port side came in
with a crath. and the sea followed,
flooding many of the state rooms on
that siue. At the same time a sea
crossed the roof of the vessel and
carried awav one of our boats, splin
tering it to pieces, and taking one of
the davits with it At 9:30 the glas
was down to 23:55, and the gale was
blowing with a severity which the
officers say is not experienced oftener
than once in five or ten years.
The storm continued during the
dav and all nieht. and also all day
yesterdav.but with moderate violence.
At 4 p. M. a dismasted vessel was
sighted. A furious squall had just
broken upon us, and the sea was run
ning mountains high, to use the pop
ular expression, Nevertheless, Cap
tain .Mouland immediately bore up
for the wreck, (which was making
signals of distress,) ordered out a life
boat and called rbr volunteers. To" a
landsman, it seemed like deliberate
suicide to eo out in such a storm.
But our third and fourth officers and
cisrbt men answered to the call with
a promptness that compelled a cheer.
Two of the men lost heart at the last
moment, but the others stood fast and
were started on their generous enter
irise. with another cheer. They car
ried a lone line with them, several
live bnovs, and a lighted lantern, for
the atmosphere was murky with the
storm, and sunset was not far off.
The wreck, a bark, was in a pitiable
condition. Her mainmast was naked,
her mizzenrnast and bowsprit were
mne. and her foremast was but a
stump, wreathed and cumbered with
a ruin of sails and cordage from the
fallen foretop and foretop gallant
masts and yards. We could see nine
men clinging to the rigging. The
stern of the vessel was gone, the sea
made a clean breach over her, pour
ing in a cataract out of the broken
stern and spouting through the part
ed planks of her bows.
Our boat pulled 300 yards and ap
proaeed the wreck on the lec side.
Then it had a hard fight, for the waves
and the wind beat it constantly back.
I do not know when anything has al
ternately so stirred me through and
throujrh and then disheartened me,
as it did to see the boat every little
while get almost close enough and
then be burled three lengths away
again by a prodigious wave. And
the darkness settling down all the
time. But at last they got the line
and buoy aboard, and after that we
could make out nothing more. But
presently we discovered the boat ap
proaching us, and found she had sav
ed every soul nine men. They bad
to drag those men, one at a time,
through the sea to the life boat with
the line and buoy for of course they
did not dare to touch the plunging
vessel with the boat The peril in
creased now, for every time the boat
got close to our lee our ship rolled
over on her from sight But onr peo
ple managed to haul the party aboard
one at a time, witnont losing a man
though I said they would lose every
single one of them I am, therefore,
but a poor success as a prophet. As
the fury of the squall diminished, am
as the sea was so heavy, it was fear
ed we might lose some men if we
tried to hoist the life boat aboard, so
she was turned adrift by the captain's
order, poor thing, after helping in such
a gallant deed. But we have plenty
more boats, and very few passengers.
"THE WATER WRATH WAS SnRI.VK.IXO.'
To speak bv the log; and be accur
ate, Capt. Mouland gave his order to
chancre our ship's course and bear
down toward the wreck at 4:18 p. m.;
at 5:15 our ship was uutljr way again
with those nine poor devils on board
That is to say, this admirable thing
was done in a tremendous sea and in
the face of a hurricane, in sixty ruin
utes by the watch and if your hon
orable society should be moved to give
to Captain Mouland and his boat's
crew that reward which a sailor prizes
and covets above all other distinctions,
the Roval humane society's medal
the parties whose names are signed
to this paper will feci as grateful as if
they were themselves the recipients
ot this great honor. loose who
know him say that Captain Mouland
Las risked his life many times' to res-
. cue sbip-wreckcd men in the days
whenjio occupied a subordinate po
sition and we hopefully trust that
the seed sown then is about to ripen
to its harvest now. The wrecked
barqe was the Charles Ward, Cap
tain Bell, bound from Quebec to Scotr
land with lumber. , The vessel went
over on her beam ends at 9 o'clock,
Monday morning, and eleven men
were washed overboard and lost
Captain Bell and eight men remain
ed, and those our boat saved, iney
Lad been on the main rigging some
thirty-one hours, without food or wa
ter, and were so frozen andexnaustea
that when we got them aboard they
could hardly speak, and the minds of
several of them were wandering. 1 he
wreck was out of the ordinary track
of vessels, and was 1,500 miles from
land. She was in the center of the
Atlantic. Our little boat crew of
volunteers consisted of the following:
I). Gillies, third officer: II. Kyle,
fourth ditto; Thomas nenry,seaman;
John Park, ditto; Nicholas Foley,
quartermaster; Henry Foley, NatLan
Clark, ditto ; Thomas Henry, seaman;
John Park, ditto ; Richard Brennan,
ditto. The officers tell me that those
two quartermasters, the Foley broth
ers, may be regarded as a sort of per
manent volunteers they stand al-
"ways ready for any splendid deed of
daring. John 1'ark is a sturdy young
sailor, but young as he is 1 overheard
him say, "Well, that's the third time
I have been out in that kind of an
expedition."; And then he added,
with a kindly faith in his species that
did him no discredit, "But it's all
right, I'll be in a close place like that
myself some day, and then somebody
will do as much for me, I reckon."
When our lifo boat first started
away on Ler mission it was snch a
galknt sight when she pinnacled her
self on the fleecy crest of the first
giant wave, that our party of passen
gers, grouped together on deck, with
one impulse broke out into cheer upon
cheer. Officer Gillies said afterwards
that about that time the thought of
Lis wife and children had come upon
Liin and his heart was sinking a bit,
but the cheers were strong brandy
and water to him, and his heart nev
er "went back on him" any more.
We would have cheered their heads
off, only it interrupted the orders so
much. Really and truly, tl;ese men
while on their enterprise were safo at
no time except when in the open sea
between the vessels ; all the time that
they were near either the wreck or
our own ship their lives were in great
If I have been of any service to
ward rescuing these nine shipwrecked
human beings by standing around
the deck in a furious storm, without
any umbrella, keeping an eye on
things and seeing that they were done
right, and yelling whenever a cheer
seemed to be the important thing, I
am so glad, and I am satisfied. I ask
no reward. I would do ii. again un
der like circumstances. But what I
do plead for, earnestly and sincerely,
is that the Royal Humane Society
will remember our captain and our
life boat crew ; and, in remembering
them, increase the high honor and es
teem in which the Society is held all
over the civilized world. In this ap
peal our passengers all join with hearty
sinceritv, and in testimony thereof
will sign their names. Begging that
you will pardon me, a 6trangcr, for
addressing your honored society with
such confidence and such absence of
ceremony, and trusting that my mo
tive may redeem mv manner, I am,

Mark Twain, (Samuel L. Clemens,)
for a Tenor
If a boy is constantly whittling
sticks, fond parents 6ay that he has
"marked constructive ability ;'' or if
he can whistle one or two notes of
an air correctly, he will bo a great
musician," or if he can draw with
reasonable accuracy, "that child is a
born artist" If these presumed pr
assumed evidences of genius are act
ed upon, and those in authority seize
arbitrarily upon the young man and
force him into a trade or art, on the
pround of their being better able to
judge than he is for himself, the pos
sibility, nay, the probability is that
he will turn out a Harold SCimpole,
of whose class the world has far too
man' already. He sketches a little ;
tinkers a little with tools; drums a
little on a piano ; and in time falls
into line with the rank and file of the
noble army of incompetents and revi
lers of fate. He may protest with
all his strength in bis earlier years
that he is not fitted for the occupation
chosen for him ; he niav demand to
be transferred into 6ome other calling
that his soul hungers after ; it is all
in vain if some one in authority, be
the anic parent or guardian, says :
" 1 our profession has been chosen for
you and you must fullow it; your el
ders have had more experience than
you and can tell better, by reason of
it, what you Deed ;" and so the young
man is condemned for life. He goes
moping all his days and refuses to be
comforted, simply because his heart
is not in what he is doing. He is out
of his element ; he disturbs the ma
chinery of the world ; be is as bad
as a broken wheel on a train ; every
thing with which he is connected
gOes halting and bumping and jump
ing because of him. If he does not
reach the highest place in his profes
sion, his elders, with astonishing in
consistency, upbraid him and say that
he has no ambition, no energy, no de
sire to succeed ; when the simple fact
is that he has no qualification to com
"How can I know about a thing
dunno nothing about?" exclaimed an
exasperate and badgered witness in the
box. "How can I have' inspiration
to preach when I am always thinking
of machinery; or paint, when 1 am
always wishing to preach, when di
vine truths fire my heart to go forth
and turn men trom the error of their
ways ?" A man out of his place says
these things at heart if not in actual
words, and Lis whole life is embitter
ed by the blindness of his ciders who
would not see. but claimed the right
because they had the power, to squeeze
a human heart into the corner they
thought it should fill. For it is crush
ing the heart out of the man to make
the boy travel in a circuit he is un
fitted for. All his energies and am
bition reach forward to one goal ; all
his nature is bent upon that one thing,
and because you cannot see as he sees.
oh parents or guardian ! because you
are not Lim and do not love as Le
loves it, you will destroy his future
power. It is a serious responsibility
to assume ; to direct the calling in
life a young man shall follow, an ac
tion to be taken upon great delibera
tion. v hatever he undertakes he
must stick to it. In the early years
of Lis life, when the world expects
but little of him. he must study or
work hard to be qualified for the later
ones, when it exerts a treat deal lie
cannot have two youths; he must
give bis young life, bis bright hopes,
his aspirations to the work in hand
What if his heart is far from it and
he is longing with all his strength for
that other calling which you have put
out of Lis reach ? You niirrlt as
well go out into the world when he
is of age, as some foreign parents do.
and select a wife for him. With
equal consistency! you might say
ve bad more experience in the
world than you; you can live happier
with this woman than one of your
own choice," yet this is an action you
would shrink from committing. Is
not a man's profession the same in de
gree as bis wife 7 Does ho not live
by it a? with Ler ? Are not all hopes

up in it r - Is not the contentment
which springs from a congenial oc
cupation in the same as connubial af
fection 1 It certainly is : for unless a
man love the work to which ho ap
plies himself Lis labor is of no force,
of little worth. He is Lalf hearted,
simply because be lacks the inspira
tion which enthusiasm lends to every
occupation, even the humblest The
shoemaker who likes to make shoes
makes better ones than the convict
enforced to do so, and the same is
true of every work under the sun.
Let every young man choose bis
own occupation in life. In any event
let him choose it If he has no par
ticular Lias or bent, let Lim find some
thing to do all the same. A parent
or guardian may say : "Mv son, it
appears to me that your walk in life
lies this way," and point out the ad
vantages likely to accrue or that can
be absolutely given him, if he adopts
the suggestions, but this is all that
should be done. If he revolts or ob
jects and says "I cannot,'.' do not re
tort with "you shall, or you are no
son of mine." You will live to re
pent it You will wear sackcloth and
ashes for it Humble yeurself a lit
tle before you overthrow him. A boy
has a right to Lis choice. He has an
inalienable right yea, a constitution
al right to "life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness." Words mean
something, and the choice of an occu
pation embraces all these. How can
you force a boy into a workshop to
learn a trade when he has no aptness
wbatercr for it, except that he Las
been seen to make boats, or kites,
things that a child naturally amnses
himself by ? You cannot -j you have
no right Consider the matter some
what If he is a tractable, affection
ate and docile bor, so much the worse,
you use his natural affection as a ve
hicle to work your will with him, not
seeing that in after life he will be
come a listless, moody, inefficient la
borer in the vineyard, because you
have trained him to a stake, or spread
him on the wall, instead of allowing
him to grow free and unfettered as he
should. Consider thismattcr in some
other light than your own inclinations.
He will doubtless live many years
after you arc gone. How shall be

inclinations, or by trying to force his
nature to run on a track too wide or
too narrow gauge for him ? Think

A Qaaker'a letter t) his Watch man.
I Lerewith send thee my pocket
clock, which standeth in need of thy
friendly correction. The last time it
was at thy friendly school, he was in
no way reformed nor in the least ben
efitted thcreby ; for I perceive by the
index of his mind that he is a liar and
the truth is not in him ; that his pulse
is something slow, which betokeneth
not an even temper ; at other times it
waxcth sluggish, notwithstanding I
frequently urge him ; when he should
be on his duty, as thou knowest his
hand denotctb, I find him slumbering,
or, as the vanity of the human reason
phrases it, I caught him napping.
Examine him, therefore, and prove
him, I beseech thee, thoroughly, that
thou mayest, being well acquainted
with his inward frame and disposition,
draw him from the error of hi9 way,
and show him the path wherein he
should go. It grieves me to think,
and when I ponder therein I am
verily of the opinion that his body is
foul, and the whole mass is corrupted.
Cleanse him, therefore, with thy
charming physic, from all pollution,
that he may vibrate and circulate ac
cording to the truth. I will place him
for a few days under thy care, and
pay for hi-; board as thou requirest
I entreat tin . friend Jokn, to demean
thyself on this occasion with, judg
ment to the gift which is in thee, and
prove thyself a workman ; and when
thou layest thy correcting hand upon
him, let it be without . passion, lest
thou shouldest drive him to destruc
tion. Do thou regulate his motion
for a time to come by the motion of
the light that ruleth the day, and
when thou findest him converted from
the error of Lis ways, and more con
fomtable to the above mentioned rules,
then thou send him home with a just
bill of the charges drawn out in the
spirit 'of moderation, and it shall be
sent thee in the root of all evil.
Xall Kobbc-r Sentenced.
On the night of the 12th of last
July, the mail stage or the Caynon
City road when between Canyon City
and Antelope Station, in that portion
of the road known as Antelope
Canyon, was stopped by three mask
ed men. The men were all armed,
and one of them demanded of the
driver of the stage, Ad. Edgar, that
he should give up to them the mail
bags. The passengers in the stage
consisting of two ladies 'and three
gentlemen were told that they would
not be in the least disturbed. The
bags were given to the robbers and
the coach allowed to proceed. Fou
persons were arrested charged with
the crime. After a deliberation of
about fifteen minutes the jury return
ed with a verdict of guilty against
the four men on all the counts in the
indictment The Judge reviewed the
case as presented by the prosecution
and defence, and stated that in his
opinion the defendants had had a fair
and impartial trial. The jurors
thought that the chain of circum
stances proved them guilty and so
found. Two months had expired
since their conviction, and if they
were not the guilty parties ample time
had been riven to produce them. No
person had been arrested or even ac
cused. He had one duty to perform
and the law only gave him one sen
tence to pronounce and he would now
proceed to do bo. Each prisoner was
called by his name and the sentence
of the court was delivered. The sen
tence was that they be each severally
confined in such penitentiary as may
be hereafter designated, at hard labor
during the remainder of their lives.
The only one manifesting any emotion
as the sentence was passed, was F,
Tompkins, who was designated dur
ing the trial as the chief robber. The
prisoners will be taken to their quar
ters in a lew days, in their case
there is no hjpc for pardon.
