BIiTLEU, PA., WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 9. 1882.
A NAILOK'K YARS.
This is tli<* tale that w is told to me,
Bv a battered anil shattered «>u of the sea
To me and my messmate, Silas Green,
When I was a guileless young marine.
'Twas the good ship Gyascutus,
All in the China seas.
With the wind i lee and the capstan free
To catch the evening breeze.
'Twas Captain Porgie on the deck,
To his mate in the mizzen hatch.
While the Iwatswaiu bold, in the forward hold,
Was winding his larboard watch.
"Oh, how does our good ship head to-night ?
llow heads our gallant craft ?"
"Oh, she heads to the E. S. W. by N.,
And the binnacle lies i.baft,"
"Oh, what does the quadrant indicate,
And how does the sextant stand ? '
"Oh, the sextant's dowu to the freezing point,
And the quadraut's lost a hand !"
"Oh, and if the quadrant has lost a hand,
And the ioitant fulls so low,
It's our bodies and bones to Davy Jones
This night are bound to go !"
"Oh, fly aloft to the garboard strake !
And reef the spanker boom;
Bend a studding sail on the martingale
To give her weather room.
"Oh, boatswain, down in the for'ard hold,
What water do vou find ?"
"Four foot and a half by the royal gaff
And rather more behind
"O, sailors, collar your marline spikes
And each belaying pin;
Come stir your stumps and spike the pumps
Or more will be comiug in !"
They stirred their .stumps, they spiked the
They spliced the mizzen brace;
Aloft and alow they worked, but oh !
The water gained a apauU.
They bored a hole above the keel
To let the water out;
But. strange to say, to their dismay,
The water in did spout.
Then up spoke the cook of our gallant ship,
And he was a lubl>er brave;
"I have several wives in various ports,
And my life I'd orter save."
Then up spoke the Captain of Marines,
Who dearly loved his grog:
"It's awful to die, and it's worse to be dry,
And I move we pipes to grog.''
Oh. then 'twas the noble second mate
[ What filled them all with awe ;
The second mate, as bad men hate,
And cruel skippers jaw.
He took the anchor on his back
And leaped to the main;
Through toain and spray he clove his way,
And sunk and rose again !
Through foam and spray, a league away
The anchor stout he bore;
Till, safe at last, he made it fast
And warped the ship ashore !
'Tain't much of a job to talk about,
But a ticklish thing to see.
suth'jn to do, ifl say it, too.
For the second mate was me !
Such was the tale that was told to me
By that modest and truthful son of the sea,
And I envy the life of a second mate
Though captains curse hira and sailors hate,
For he ain't like some of the swaps I've
As would go and lie to a poor marine.

THE EGYPTIAN QUESTION.
Tlie Sultan Asserts his Man
A dispatch from Constantinople
says Lord Pufferin, British ambassa
dor, again sent Mr. Sandison, secretary
of the legation, to ask the Sultan to
issue the proclamation denouncing
Arabi Pacha as a rebel. Mr. Saudi
son at the same time gave the Sultan
concilitory explanations, stating that
England did not aim at a protectorate
over Egypt. He also asked for par
ticulars concerning the composition of
the Turkish expedition to Egypt.
The Sultan gave no satisfactory ans
wer. It is stated, however, that he is
irritated at England's action, and that
he has sent verbal messages, through
Mr. Sandison, that he would do noth
ing for England, but would only
yield to the wishes of Europe.
Herr von Hirsehfeld, the German
vepreseutative at the confeieniie, was
instructed on Friday from Berlin to
recommend the Sultan to issue the
proclamation, declaring Arabi Pasha a
rebel, demanded by England. The
Russian Charge d'Affaires had been
ordered by his Government not to
ference until he has received detailed
instructions. Yesterday a special
steamer arrived at Constantinople
with the expected instructions:
The various Governments have
asked their representatives at Constan
tinople for explanations in regard to
tbe bbseuce of hi. unou, tho Kussian
delegate, from Thursday's sitting of
the conference, but the representatives
profess that they are unable to ex
plain the cause. They state that an
ht'iauKeuibiit ttrotild hayc hecn reap Led
on Thursday between the Porte and
j the conference but for the absence of
M. Onou. The adjourament of tbe
meeting is regarded as seriously en
dangering the sucpess of the confer
ence. Lord Dutferin, tbe Marquis do
Noailles and Count Corti had re
peiyed important instructions from
their respective Governments which
they were unable to communicate to
TURKEY TO WAIT UNTIL ENGLAND IS
The deficiency of provisions and
water is urged by tho British Govern
ment against the landing of Turks
until after a forward movement of
the British, which will be preoeeded
by the occupation of Aboukir, Dami
etta and Port Said. Admiral Sey
mour and General Allison are equally
of opinion that the position of Arabi
is an easy one to turn, but not to at
tack in front without heavy losses.
The Jotirr.ai de« Debuts, of Paris,
says; "England, who, at her own
cost and risk, re-established order in
Egypt, will not do so gratuitously.
She will be right."
THE SUEZ CANAL.
The condition of affairs at Port
ia very pritipal The French
men-of-war nave been ordered to sta
tion themselves at Port Said and
cease traversing tbe Suez canal. The
Madrid Impartial, says: "Germany
has proposed that Spain co-operates in
tkfi protection of the Suez canal, and
we believe the Government will accept
THE TURKISH CONTINGENT.
A Constantinople dispatch says
Mouktar Pasha has made arrarge
meitts which will enable the Porte to
dispatch 20,900 men to Egypt in .suc
Dervish Pasha i.s designated as the
probable commander of the force iu
, Egypt. It ,'s expected that the de
' parture of the force will be delayed.
THE PORTE WANTS To KNOW.
The Porte has directed Lord Puf
ferin to explain what it describes as
the extraordinary severity of the
British at Alexandria.
THE REBEL GOVERNMENT DEFENDED.
An official telegram received in
Constantinople from the rebel gov
ernment sajs : The Khedive having
issued a decree dismissing Arabi
Pacha from the Ministry lor neglec -
ing to defend Alexandria, and having
published a proclamation declaring
that England is the friend of Egypt,
Arabi Pacha lias called on the couutrv
of which he is a submissive servant,
to pronounce its will in the matter.
At a great meeting, called for Satur
day, comprising Ulemas, Cadis, the
Coptic Patriarch, heads of the Arme
nian, Greek aud Maronitecommunities,
various high functionaries, ruudirs,
notables and leading merchants, in all
3(>4 persons, moving speeches were de
livered, especially by Ali Bey, under
Secretary to the Soudan, who recount
ed outrages of English sailors upon
The meeting, with only three dis
sensionists, decided to maintain
Arabi, so that he might defend the
country until the conclusion of satis
factory peace or the total extermina
tion of his forces. All decrees to the
I contrary were declared annulled, as
the Khedive was beyond the Mussul
man law. It was resolved that the
decisions of the meeting be submitted
to the Parte. Cousins of the Khedive,
who were present ai, the meeting, de
clared that Tewfik would be Khedive
if he sided with the countrv and the
army; but that, under the present
circumstances, he is either a puppet
or a prisoner of the British, and his
authority might be repudiated. Im
mense numbers of people paraded the
streets last evening, shouting: "Vic

A Horse at tlie Pump.
Our Dumb Animals, of Boston, the

of Cruelty to Animals, is responsible
for the following slory; One day last
I month a lady whose home is at Ports
mouth, N. 11., was enjoying a ride
through a yillage near that city, when
her attention was drawn to a horso at
the roadside near a respectable looking
house, trying to pump water into a
trough to drink by seizing the handle
of the pump with his teeth. Owing
to lack of skill or some defect in the
pump the horse was unable to get the
water. The lady gave the reins to her
sister alighted, and drew a bountiful
supply to quench his thirst. The
horse evinced his sense of obligation
to his benefactor as intelligibly and
poiitely as a gentleman could evprpsj
his thanks for a like courtesy, and the
lady returned to her carriago and re
sumed her drive.

The Pennsylvania Gazette was

at the New Printing-Office, near the

original copy, now before the writer,

first and second pages were devoted to

How I<o»k Ji.»n Way Live.
It was Professor Hufelaud's opinion
that the limit of possible haman life
might be set at two hundred years.
Tliis is on the general principle that the
life of a creature is eight times the
years of its period of growth. That
which is quickly formed quickly per
ishes, and the earlier complete develop
ment is reached'the sooner bodily decay
ensues. More women reach old age
than men, but more men attain re
markable longevity than women.
Passing up in the scale of the life of
man, skipping the patriarchs, we find
many recorded instances of the longev
ity among the classic Greeks and
Romans. Piiny notes that in the
reign of the Emperor Vespasian, in
the year 7t>, there were one buudred
and twenty-four men living in the
limited area between the Appenines
and the Po of one hundred and up
ward, three of whom were one hundred
and forty, and four oyer one hundred
and thirty-live. Cicero's wife lived to
the age of one hundred and three, and
the Roman actress Luceja played in
public as late as her one hundred anJ
Coming down to more recent times,
the most noted authentic instance of
great age is that of Henry Jenkins, of
Yorkshire, England, who died in IK7O
one hundred and sixty-nine years old.
He was a fisherman, and at the age of
one hundred easily swam across rapid
rivers. Another historic case is that
of Thomas Purr, of Shropshire, a day
laborer, who lived to the age of one
hundred and fifty two years. When
more than one hundred and twenty he
married his second wife, and till one
hundred and thirty he could swing
the scythe and wield the flail with the
best of his fellow-laborers. In his one
Jiuadred and fifty-second year Parr
went up to London to exibit himself to
the King. It proved an unlucky visit,
for violating the abstemious habit of a
century and a half, the old man feast
ed so freely on the royal victuals that
he soon died, merely of plethora. On
examination his internal organs proved
to be in excellent condition, and there
was no reason why he should not have
lived much longer, save for this un
fortunate taste of royal hospitality.
Professor llufeland's roll of centen
arians includes many more remarkable
eases, among them that of Mitlestedt,
a llucsian soldier, who served sixty
seven years under both Fredericks,
fighting many battles and enduring
much hard campaigning, and who,
after all this, married successively
three wives, the last when he was
one hundred aud ten, two years before
The Overseers oflhe Poor of Rye,
New York, subpasned John -Martin,
aged S3 years, before a judge, to show
i-ause why he shou'd n >t support a
drunken son, of thirty. The old man
told a feeling tale of his sacrifices for
the wayward boy, and said his income
was barely sufficient to support a blind
son and an invalid d ughter. The
judge dismissed the case with tha re
mark that he could not order a man of
fS - 2 to provide for a son, who, w re it
not for rum. could aud should bo earn
ing for his father. 'The towu,' con
tinued the judge,'has licensed the es
tablishments where this old man's son
