Mark Twain came over from Eng land last week, and like Snmner, tells Lib experience on the "wide, wide sea." Preserving a RTavity of style, as fitting the theme, be marts out for midably : 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 peril. 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, gentlemen, . l our obedient servant, Mark Twain, (Samuel L. Clemens,) Hartford, Connecticut. Choosing Orrapatloa SI ma. 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 mand success. "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 pn it centered, his happiness bound 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 best perpetuate your name and fami ly J By following his own natural inclinations, or by trying to force his nature to run on a track too wide or too narrow gauge for him ? Think over it Scientific American. 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. Tke Bed (test.
