NEW YORK, June 10.—Icebergs of
enormous proportions continue to be
met with by ocean steamers with
amazing frequency even in very south
erly latitudes. An illustration of
this may be found in the statements
of four ship captains who have just ar
rived in this city. Captain Hansen, of
the Hamburg steamer Frisia, said:
'We left Hamburg on May 28. We
had light variable winds and moder
ate weather. On June 5 we entered
latitude 42.37, longitude 47.08. The
temperature, both of the atmosphere
and the water, then fell considerably,
and I concluded that icebergs were not
far off. I had already gone through
the mill before, you know. Well, of
course, I was not mistaken. When the
first iceberg hove in sight—about 12 P.
M. —we were running parallel with
the Bremen steamer Main. The
Mosel and an unknown English steam
er were also near by. This iceberg
was a big fellow and was being carried
toward us with great rapidity by the
Gulf Stream. Its height above water
was fully 200 feet, and as that portion
always represents but a seventh part
of tLe entire mass, it must have been
1,400 feet high. It covered an area
of probably 500 square feet. At 12:30
it arrived at an equal distance be
tween the Main and my steamer,
creating a number of small whirl
pools around us.
Indeed, both vessels heaved heavily
from one side to another in conse
quence of the commotion produced in
the water. On the rear portion of the
iceberg a number of Northern birds
resembling eidt-r ducks were visible.
A black object also appeared for a
moment between the crevices of the
ice, which one of the men who saw it
through a telescope declared to be a
sea-horse. We saw two more icebergs
of an average height of one hundred
feet before the day was over. This
was latitude 42.06, longitude 49.04.
The two knocked together shortly
after passing us and a third iceberir,
considerably smaller than the rest, was
formed. The sight was magnificent,
though enough to make any one dizzy.
I account for the presence of icebergs
so far South this year by the fact that
we have had a very mild winter,
which has severed the the bergs from
the mainland. They have drifted
southwestwards as far as Newfound
land, which is in latitude 50, and not
being able to gain a foothold on shore
there, owing to their depth, have
drifted eastward. They are to be
found in many dfferent latitudes, but
pretty near the same longitude, that is
between 47 and 50. I do not think
any of them are more to westward
than that.
Navigation is greatly impeded, and
it is a wonder to me that no accidents
have occurred so far. After meeting
the three icebergs I spoke of just now,
a heavy fog enveloped us, and I know
I never slept a wink that night. Had
an iceberg approached us there would
have been no means of discovering the
fact in time to steer out of its way.
The only manner of ascertaining the
presence of icebergs in Southern waters
is by testing the temperature; but
then, of course, this does not tell one
how near the ice is. There is prac
tically no way of eliminating this dan
ger to ocefiu travel, unless a very
southerly and consequently rounda
bout course is taken by the steamers,
that is what most of them are doing,
by the way, and as to my self, I intend
running two or three degrees further
south on my return journey.'
Captain liarre, of the Bremen steam
er, Main, corroborated the above
statement of his brother captain, and
added: 'My experience with iceoergs
on this trip was, perhaps, even move ex
tensive than that of Captain Hansen.
Late in the afternoon of June 5, we
lost sight of the Frisia, and very near
ly missed coming in collision with an
iceberg as large as any I have yet seen.
This was owning to the dense fog
which came in the wake of the first
three berirs. Indeed, strange to say,
most of the large floating masses of
ice I have mot have been followed by
mists. Luckily the approach ot the
monster was noticed in titue by the
seething of the waters around it, and
we escaped without a scratch, so to
say. Judging by the extreme coldness
of the water during the night, we must
have passed several icebergs. That
we escaped collision and instant death
on this trip was nothing short of a
Captain Ilillmers, of the German
bark Amaranth, from Hamburg, had a
still niore interesting story to tell.
'We left Hamburg In the middle of
May,' he said. 'Winds were very
variable, but mostly westerly. On
s May 23, latitude 44, longitude 46.50,
'■ we narrowly missed coming in collis-
ion with three icebergs from foriy to
fifty feet high. This was only a fore
taste of what was to follow. When day
dawned on the 24th we almost thought
ourselves transplanted to the North
Pole. With the exception of a few
hundred feet around us the surface of
water was covered with huge masses
of ice, some of which rose in peaks to
an unpreccdent height. In other
words, we were completely hemmed
in ; and as the icebergs continued to
drift nearer around us, and the circle
became smaller, almost all hope was
finally abandoned. At this critical j
moment a channel sufficiently large to j
allow of our passing through it pre-1
sented itself to view, and without a j
moment's delay we steered for it. Luck j
and good seamanship combined proved
our salvation, and we dodged our way to
clear water. The icebergs with which
we had coped were of an average
height of 100 feet each, and occupied
400 to 500 square feet of the water's
surface. Two white bears were seen
on the plateau of one of them, and
many gulls, ducks and other North
ern birds were perched on the peaks.
On May 24, latitude 42, longitude
51.20, three icebergs passed us being
[ rapidly drifted along by the stream in
a northeasterly direction.'
Captain Young, of the American
bark H. Routb, who left London,
April 2G, with general merchandise,
that from lat. 47.15, lon. 44.G0, to lat.
45.20, lon. 50, he sailed through a sea
covered witn icebergs of various sizes
He met the largest on May 24, lon.

The Country's Live-stoek.
The Census Bulletins increase in
interest as they give the completed
work of the Bureau. Onejnstnowat
hand contains the statistics of farm
live stock in the States and Territories,
and compares the present number of
each class of animals with the number
reported in the census oflS7o. The
j totals are well worth looking at. It
is a fact of decided significance that
all classes of live-siock except work
ing oxen show a rate of increase con
siderably larger than that of popula
tion. I'aim stock alone i 3 included ia
the figures, no account being here
taken of ranch or city and village
stock. The following table of totals
will explain itself at a glance:
Rate of
Classes of Animals. Total Number. Increase.
Horses 10,"57,981 45
Mules ai>d Asses 1,812,932 Gt
Working Oxen 993,970 —25
Milch Cows 12,4 13,593 39
Other Cattle; . 22,4S Q ,590 6G
Sheep 35,191,056 24
Swine 47,683,951 90
The rate of increase in population
was 30 per cent., it will be noted that
all classes of animals excepting work
ing o.ven show* a considerably larger
increase than that, the exception in the
case of sheep coming doubtless from
the ii'fccurp.cy of the census of 1870.
As for working oxen, there bas been in
crease in but fiiieen Suites and Terri
tories, while the loss iu some places was
great, as in lowa 89 per cent., in Illi
nois S3, in Missouri 86, ia Co'orada

The country certainly has no reason to

A Western wiiter suggests that the
summer food of hogs should be more
nitrogenous than corn, and recom
mends green oats and peas. The pea
is very rich in muscle and bone-build
iug elements, aud oats are also superior
to corn in this respect. The crop
should be sown in the proportion of
two bushels of peas one of oats per
a:re, and well covered. The pigs
should be turned in when the pea is
just passing out of the milk.
, At a sheep-shearing at Middlebury,

ounces of wool or a small fraction less
than 28 pounds each. A ewe three
years old, with a lamb by her side,
yielded 21 pounds nine ounces, the
growth of 364 days. The carcass
weighed 65 pounds, so that the weight
of wool was nearly one third that of
the carcass.

1 is a boss invention for rascals of all
i grades. Give me a country where
• j there is no law, and I can take care of
, myself every time. Now, for instance,
; i when I lived in Ohio I got a dose of
law that I will never forget. I was in
partnership with a man named Butler,
and one morning we found our cashier
missing with §3,000. He had dragged
the safe and put out. Well, I started
after him and caught him in Chicago,
where he was splurging around on the
money. I got him arrested, and there
was an examination. Well, all the
facts were brought out and the defense
moved that the case be dismissed, as
the prosecution diu not make out a case
in the name of the firm, and that if
there was a firm the copartnership had
not been shown by anv evidence before
the court. To my the
court said the plea was O. K. and dis
missed the case. Before I could realize
what was up the thief had walked off.
Well, I followed him t > St. Louis and
there I tackled'him again. I sent for
my partner and we made a complete
case, going for him in the name of the
Commonwealth and Smith, Butler & Co
Well, the lawyer for the defense claim
ed that the money being taken from a
private drawer in the safe was my
money evclusivc-ly, and that my partner
had nothiDg to do wiih it; that the
case should be prosecuted by me in
dividually, and by the tirru. The old
'bloke' who sat on the bench wiped
his spectacles, grunted round a while
and dismissed the case. Away goes
the man again. Then I got another
hitch ou him and tried to convict him
of theft, but the court held that he
should be charged with embezzlement
Some years after I tackled him again
and they let him go. Statutes of limi
tation, you see. Well, I concluded to
give it up, aud I did.
'But about four years afterward I
was down in Colorado and a man
pointed to another and said: 'That
fellow has just made a hundred thous
and in a mining swindle.' I looked,
and it was my old cashier. I followed
him to the hotel aud nailed him in his
room with the money. Now, I says :
'Billy, do you recognize your old boss V
and of course Le did. Says I: 'Bill, I
want that thiee thousand you stole
from me, with the interest, and all
legal and traveling expenses.' 'Ah,
you do V says he ; 'didn't the courts
decide that—'
'Curse the courts,'says I, putting a
six-shooter a foot long under his nose.
'This is the sort of legal document
that I'm travelin' on now. This is
the connlai<it, warrant, indictment,

money right away, and said ho hoped
there'd be no hard feelings. Now,
there's some Colorado law for you, and
it's the kind for me ! Eh, boys?' and
the crowd, with one acc nd, concurred
in the cheapness r.nd efficacy of the

What lla|»?»ene<l to a Pltts
* (HH'KII Man.
.Newspapers are full of stories now
a-days of the marvelous luck which has
befallen people who did not look for
anythingo r the kind to happen. Every
now and then we hear of somebody
having a large fortune left them by the
death of a distant relative, a cousin in
California, or something of that kind.
Not long ago a young I'ittsburgher had
a singular piece of luck happen to him.
One day the young geutleman in ques
tion was walking down Fifth avenue,
when he saw an old and rather de
crepit man slip ou a crossing and fall
rather heavily. He aided him to re
gain his footing, aud helped him into a
neighboring drug store, where the old
man had his leg mended with stacking
plaster, having knocked some skin off.
The old fellow seemed very grateful for
the courtesy wi ich had been sho vn
him, and alter asking the name of the
young man who had been of service to
him he wrote it down in a memoran
dum book, and said, as he shook
bauds :
'My name is : I am from Massa
chusetts. Some day, perhaps, you may
hear from me.'
Time passed on, aud all recollection
of the occurrence passed from the Pitts
burgher's mind. He became embarras
sed in business and reduced to extreme
poverty. One day he felt extremely
down-hearted, aud did not know which
way to turn for a livelihood, when he
chanced to pick up a Boston paper and
to his astonishment he saw that the
old man whom he had picked up on
Fifth avenue was dead, and by his
will, which was published in the paper,
the I'ittsburgher saw that a fortune of
over ibiee hundred thousand dollars
had been left by the dead man to found
a theological seminary.

A newly-arrived and singularly as
sorted couple at the Fifth Avenue
Hotel, consisting of a Londoner and
an out-and-out American western man,
stood watching the throDg oi people
coming and going at the marble coun
ter the other evening, and listened
with surprise to the endless number of
quick questions made to the hotel
clerk about trains, rooms and indivi
duals, and his instantaneous replies,
when the Englishman broke out with:
'Most extraordinary man, seems to
know everybody and everything—won
der if there is any question about a
railway train or any person that he
eau't answer?"
•I'll bet half a dozen champagne I'll
put him a question about a train he
can't answer,' said the westerner.
'Done. I'll stand six to see him sent

'Well, here goes, then,' and western
stepped up to the marble counter.
'Say! You appear to know every
thing and everybody; who is there
that's going to h—, and when'll the

'Charles J. Guiteau: starts June

querist right in the eye without mov
ing a muscle.
'Well 1 reckon you are about right,
but you can't tell me where I can go
aud get a ticket, can you ?'
•Go to the devil,' said the clerk,
turning away.
'Mister,' said the western guest,
looking over to Parker, the blonde
book-keeper, after the laughter had
subsided, 'you can charge six bottles
of 'Fiz' in my bill for the use of them
gentlemen, for I must weaken on this
bet, it's agin me.' He withdrew, and
the clerk kept answering questions
about more familiar routes with per
fect equanimity.

of the firm of Palmer, Cook & Co., a
bank which did an immense business

($28,000) from the bank. Mr. Palmer's

j been called away to attend to some
' duty at a lumber yard a mile or
more from the bank. Thither the de
| positor hastened and made known his
wants and the necessity of having
them attended to at once. Mr. Palmer
could find neither pen, pencil, ink nor
paper. But without a moment's hesi
tation be picked up a shingle, borrow
j cd a piece of red chalk and with it
wrote a check on the shingle in large
| and distinct letters for $25,000. This
was good when presented for all the
money the depositor hand in the bank.

A valentine seen by a reporter of
the Kaston (Mii.) Ledger, which was
J to n girl in Easton by a youth in

j the story of a name aud of a name of
J note in American history. The name
, of rhe sender of too missive is Keturn
J. Meigs, and the same Christian
name iias been iu ihe Meigs family for
several generaiiouH. Many years ago,
in ante-revolutionary days, Jonathan
Meigs coui ied a young lady who re
jected bis addresses. Meigs continued
I to love the girl, and, (hough too proud
and sensitive to try a second time to
win her, he determined never to mar
ry any one els* 1 , and to live and die a
bachelor unless she, of her own violl
tion, relented.
After a few years the lady did re*
[ lent, or perhaps got to know her own
heart beuer. and sent a letter to her
fo/mer suitor. Meigs got the letter
and found iu it only the two words :
'Return, Jonathan.' It was enough
Jonathan did return and made her his
wife. Their first child was baptized:

Safest Place ia a Railroad
It is very well known that the car
nearest the engine is exposed to the
least dust, and that the rear car of a
train is generally safer than the front
car. The safest, says the Railroad
Journal, is probably the last car but
one iu a traiu of more than two cars ;
that is, there are fewer chances of ac
cidents to this than any other. If it is
a way train at moderate speed, or any
train standing still, a collision if possi
ble from another train in the rear, in
which the last car receives the first
shock. Again, the engine and front
cars of a train will often run over a
broken rail or a cow, or a stone, with
out detriment, while the Inst car, hav
ing nothing to draw it into the line of
the traiu, is free to leave the t r ack.
Next to the forward car, the rear car is
probably the most unsafe in a train.
The safest seat is probably near the
centre of the last car but one.
