A Vasil Ot t e Hundred and Five Days from
Limpoot..:lnteHoe Seferirti f of the Cuero.
On the morning of the 9th of Octo
ber, 1883, the British barque Cadet left
the mouth of the Mersey, bound for
this port, laden with earthen-ware con
sign* to Peter Wright Sous, and
yesterday • morning, after a passage of
one hundred andlive days, she warped
alongside the dock. For nearly four
mouths the vessel has been beating
about on the North and South Atlantic
Oceans, the crew short of food, and for
a long time without any water, save the
rain caught in spare sails. Sometimes
left. without a, breath- of wind, and at
other times scudding before or lying to
the teeth of fierce, gales, her voyage can
be safely called a rather adventurous
one. On- the fifth day -out, working
down the Irish (:flannel, she fell in
with her first trouble—a heavy blow
from the north MO northwest. This,
however, te,a good barque of five hun
dred tons, provisioned for seven weeks,
MO with -a crest , of fourteen, all told,
was not - considered \ much of a hin
drance. She weathered this eale, and
from the 17th of October to the
_22d of
the same month the barque met with
fair weather, and obtained a good start
on her trip, tuking the southern course.
The weather soon changed, and head
winds again delayed her. --"Thuseuntil
the 27th of October, the light trade
winds impeded her progress, and, at
the same Buie, the provisions were
found'to be low. To prevent their Ira
' mediate exhaustion, the men were re
duced to'half gallon of water per day
and hale rations of hard food. And

Om gave- up all hope of making any
pert, save that whence Shakespeare
tells us no traveler returns. •
!Thus; through November and Decem
ber, the barque was drifted about, tossed
siOd becalmed in succession, uutil Jan
uary I, New Year's day, dawned upon
fourteen men living, or, more properly,
dying, on a half-pound of rice, peae, or
.flour, mule pint 'if water every twenty
four hours. Up to this time no sail had
been seen, and the officers and crew,
knowing that they must have been
given up as lost, and, having just ten
pounds of floor left, began to think of
preparing for a speedy interview with
their Judge.
In the evening, however, a ship, the
Queen, of St. Johns, N. 8., from Liv
erpool, bound for Charleston, S. C., In
blast, hove in sight, and boarding her,
they obtained a small quantity of pro
vh.ions. They then bore up for the
coast; but oir atteras, eight miles due
cast, they were caught by a terriblegale
fioni the northwest, and were' again
driven to sea. Their provisions were
again giving out s eshen. on. the 14th of
January, the steamer.lluntress, of New
York, was spoken, ands} little provision
obtained from her.' On the Ipth of Jan.
the barque again here up aw the coast,
and endeavored to niaketheCbesapeake,
but was met by the tremendous north
western galeg and blown eastward. On
:- the 21st the crew, almost despairing,

had completely given out, but the
schooner William Flint,.from -Thoma
ston for Norfolk, came to their aid and
supplied` Itheir wants. Thus encour
_aged, the crew worked with a will, and
at night sighted Cape Henlonen, and a
few hours afterwards were safe in the
1)i-'iware river, and in two days more
sarer still—along side dock.
The story of the sufferings of these

that he was nearly beside himself, but

that it will be found uninjured.

trials was the crushing and scraping of
her cutwater and bows by the ice in

Not a man was sick during the vyy
age, although at one time it was feared
that the men would practise cleanliness
at the expense of health by washing in
salt water.
Gov. Fenton is no novice in public
affairs. He has been ten years in Con
gress, and four years Governor of the
Empire State. 1n every emergency he
has shown himself competent to wield
the helm. In one respect his career
has been remarkable. Every year has
strengthened him with the people.—
The more thoroughly and Widely the
people have known him, the more Axed
and pervading has become their attach
, ment. He has ascended the political
ladder in regular gradation, and in each
new promotion is centred the conscience
and heart of the people. The election
of Gov. Fenton has a-meaning. It is
the triumph less of the man than of
the political sentiment in which he has
lived, moved and S had a being. It Is
understood by the,ipeople, and the elec
tion gives profound satisfaction to the
popular heart. Gov. Fenton has all
the ability and all the experience which
are requisite to fill the office of Senator
with honor and success, and we have
tile utmost confidence that he will, by
his service in the Senate, not only
maintain, but greatly strengthen -his
present high position in the ranks of
our chief public men. We hope he will
find in John Scott a true and worthy
colleague. We doubt not; he will.—
Pennsylvania certainly made a mag
nificent bargain when she traded off
Cowen for. Cameron, and there-is near
ly as good a chance for improvement
it, the exckange of Buckalew for Scott.

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 17, 1869.
An error of $lO,OOO occurred in the
statement of the war debt of the Coun
ty last W ell. The amount of Bounty
loan cert., cates redeemed and cancel
ed, of Odt '64, should read as correct
ed, $52,500, and not $62,500. We regret
tbat the former figur e s were too large.
The Republican State Committee
met at the Lochiel House, Harrisburg,
on the 4th inst. The time and place of
bolding the State Convention were
fixed for June 23, at Philadelphia. Can
didates for Governor and 'Judge of the
Supreme Court are to'Be selected. Res
olutions pledging the party to a rigid
economy were unanimously adopted.
Undoubtedly many have read, with
increasing interest, the series of arti
cles on the Constitution of the Earth,
by Col. Emery, the 4th of which is
given this week. The articles are
written in the easy, popular style, as to
manner and matter, and if the reader
Will follow the author we do not fear to
promise that be, or she, or both, and
tdi, will find it profitable in the end.
Shall we be pardoned for publishing
a good story, with an obvious moral,
tWiCe in two mouths? If so, then we
will not apologize further for the re
publication of " A Strange Destiny,"
on the first page. However, it was a
mistake, discovered when too late to
mend the matter. Our readers need
not look for it again in a less period of
time than six months.

Lets hope that the paint resolution
offered by Senator Wallace on the gd
inst., looking to a continuance of the
outrageous monopoly of the lines of
travel between Washington and the
North, will be killed at once. If Mr.
Wallace chooses to champion the Cam
den & Amboy R. R., or the Baltimore
and Ohio R. R., let him have that bad
eminence. That tb Government of
the 'United States has a perfect right to
build any road, or authorize the con
struction of the same, to any point
deemed necessary for its own accorno
dation no sane man doubts. No State
Rights for Pennsylvania, if you please.
There may be a few, in each hundred
of intelligent men,' who can conceive
of nothing higher in the scale of hu
man duty than selfish consideration of
number one ; . and there may be a few,
in every hundred partisans, who regard
Me whole duty ofja party done, win
it has taken all necessary steps for the
perpetuation of its power.
However—it Wit very low and un-
I worthy, view of individual duty which
circumscribes the field of action to the
narrow channel of self; it is a much
lower, and more ueworthy view of the
party, which gives its energies over to
the selfish and belittling labor of de
vising means to perpetuate its sway, for
the very sakelof sway, and nothing
more, higher, aid better. It Indy do for
the indvidual to entertain such views
posed to be the guardian of the com- -
mon weal, find when it forgets that,
and only remembers itself, it deserves
to share the fate which befel the Demo
cratic in 1864, and the Whig party two
years earlier.
When we set out in defence of the
principles upon which, four years later,
the Republican party nobly established
itself and went before the people s it
was with no special reference to the for
mation of a party. In common with
thousands we determined to battle for
those principles, first, always, and to
the end. Nothing has ever caused us
to halt, fora moment, in thatidetermin
ation ; and nothing would render us
more unhappy than to doubt our ut
most and unqualified fidelity to those
principles while life lasts.
The Principles upon which the Re
publican - party was established, and
for the triumph of which it is soleixinly
pledged, are Liberty universal; equal
- rights and equal privilege before the
law ; and equal oportunity for all,
without reference to sex, color, birth,
or Condition.
The Republican party has established
liberty throughout the republic; and it
has partially established the corelative
principle of equality before the law.—
One thing remains to be done—a thing
which ought to have been done first
after the proclamation of uuiiersal
freedom; which, having been done,
all other necessary things would have
followed sequentially ; that is to say :
Equal Opportunity for, and Equal In
ducement to mental and moral advance
ment. In other words, the abolition of
all taws, organic or statute, which rec
ognize CLASS.
CLASS is s . relic of the feudal ages.
It cannot be engrafted upon a system
of Government diametrically oppoS'ed
to feudal customs and practice.
The only equality possible under any
government, is that of Opportunity and
. Inducement. Not only should all men
and women have equal opportunity to
gain an English education, but the in
ducement to seek such advanceruNt
should be to all, alike. What merits
reward in one'case should merit lleWaid
to every similar ease, without reference
to the accidents of life.
The Republican party can never be
. the apologist for, much less the author
of class legislation. It has to rise to the
work of eufranchisiing the minds, as
well as the bodies, of the people. This
work cannot be done save by a constant
and determined effort to raise every cit
izen, or subject of law, in the scale of in
telligence. The sum of intelligence in
any republic is always the exact meas
ure of the wisdom of its policy. Thegov
ernment which strives to build up " a
governing class" is a monarchy, pure
and simple, whether it be governed by
hereditary or elective rulers. The poli
cy of any party, tending to widen po
litical distinations among the masses
which make up a nation must, soon C - or
late, result in the destruction of that
party. It was the attempt to uphold
and perpetuate slavery which over
hrew the Democratic party. ±he at-
li M i rsbocked the cultivated moral
sense of the masses, and the inharmony
existing between the name and the de
clared object of the party alienated the
hearts of thousands from the support
of that organization; Abousands, even,
whose sensibilities were not so much
shocked as their conceptions of donsfs
tent action.
The slave has dropped the chains that
fettered his will. But the work of en
franchisement remains to be completed.
This work relates to all who have been
denied Equal Opportunity and Equal
Inducement. It relates to a very large
class of men who have never been
slaves and chattels. There is a class of
whites in the South, forming the bulk
of the white population, which has
never bn privileged to aspire to any
thing higher than hog and hominy,
with a little poor whisky to wash it
down. In the States this class has been
as much a cipher as the bondnien with
darker skins. Place, voice in the high
er councils-:-neither of these induce
ments to progress were ever offered
to this class. Without such induce
ments moral and mental elevation has
been nexir to impossible. The condi
tion of this class continues deplorable.
It is littlq•less degraded than that of
the most ignorant of the freedmen. If
the Repulican party woutd live in his
tory, if it desires to perpetuate its pow
er, it 'misfiling wide open the gates of
Equal Opportunity and Equal Induce
ment. In other words, it is the duty of
the Republican party to offer full politi
cal enfranchisement and equality to all
men as an inducement to them to help
themselves upward in the scale of being.
We hope to be understood, for this is,
a great matter. Having always advo
cated the political equality of men, it
is less difficult, now that the hour for
the crystalization.of the idea has come,
to labor for its success. It is a great
work and a noble cause. It requires
men to step aside from the indolent
contemplation of Self, and think of
their fellows. The theory of " a gov
ernment by the people, of the people,.
and for the people," has now% to be re
duced to fact. The old cry of the Dem
ocratic party- 1 ' NO taxation without
representasion," has yet to become a
part of our governmental system. • The
duty of the Republican party relates to
the realization of these grand ideas. _
The path -to success in this matter is
not strewed with roses. It will present
obstacles not to be surmounted except
by great effort. But by labor, only, can
parties increase in strength. The great
danger to the permanency of an organ
ization lies in its refusing,to the
work for which it was created.
Just what the profit accruing to po
lemic religion may be, we have no ex
act knowledge, but only an opinion.
That opinion places the profit on the
side of loss. We allude to a series
of letters from a Rev. Mr. Joy, of
Penn Yan, to and in criticism of Rev.
T. R. Beecher, Of Elmira. Who Mr.
Joy way be is beyond.our acquaintance
to say; but Mr. Beecher is pretty well
known hereabout and elsewhere gen
orally. Mr. Joy has heard that Mr.
Beecher frequents billiard saloons, and
likewise drinks pale ale in public places ;
at which Mr. Joy takes c umbrage. Wo
know nothing of the truth or falsity of
tireettrBas frequent the
billiard saloons of Elmira. That he
drinks ale as a: beverage we doubt; but
if that be the ease, it is likely enough
to be true that he drinks his ale openly.
However, is it right for Mr. Joy to
publish this sort of hearsay ? suppose
it false—ean Mr. Joy undo the wrong
by'an apology? Will it not stand as a
seandal,-in spite of apology and correc
tion, with nine-tenths of the public? It
seems that in Mr. Joy zeal outruns dis
However, we are no discilple of Mr.
Beecher. For his versatile intellect,
and for his labor to make men better
we have a most decided regard. A most
admirable man in very Many respects,
he appears, from our place of view,
lacking in regard for the " many mick
les," which "Make imuckle." Among
radicals he is an anomaly ; among con
servatives he is, so to speak, an anach
ronism. He means well to men of
every degree ; but he is unlike the
apostle who said, so nobly :--" If to eat
meat maketh my brother to
then I will eat no more meat while the
world doth stand." We can assure
Mr. Beecher that there are plenty of
reformed drunkards who can not safe
ly drink communion , wine; in other
words, instead of discerning the "body
and blood of the Lord" therein, they
would see devils and snakes. Nor does
it do 6.redit to Mr. Beecher to put wine
abovb water for sacremental purposes.
If ileitis a literal professor very well;
but its he supposes that wine no- more
resembles nor symbolizes blood than
water, then he is' wrong in his 'reply to
Mr. Joy in the Advertiser of Feb. 9.
There is no wine in healthy blood;
there is some'water. We are not alone
in hoping that in a not far distant day
alcholic wine will no more be used for
sacramental purpose than meat pies or
sausages. Speed the day.

The most important work done dur
ing the week relates to the Constitu
tional Amendment providing for im
partial suffrage. The Senate, after a
protracted session of seventeen hours,
passell the House proposition with
amendments. The House proposition
publiShed last week provided for im
parti4l suffrage ; the Senate amends so
as to jrnake suffrage, practically, univer
sal. 'l\Ve prefer the House proposition.
To-day week the formal count of the
elect Oral vote took place, both Houses
partieipating. Quite a fuss was made
about the Georgia vote, m i nd some sharp
talk ,ccurred, not much to the credit of
of *an i ybody.
REVENGE.—The Elmira Advertiser
I says that a man from Gettysburg, in this State,
had his pocket picked in a crowd the other day.
Some `one standing near saw the transaction, but
refused to describe the thief. When the victim
asked for an explanation, the other coolly asked,
"why did you charge me ten cents for a drink of
water when I was in the army at Gettysburg 2"
That soldier was blessed with a good memory.
Bet suppose he bad described thopiskpooket, and
then poured live cons upon the fellow's head ?
That would have boon revenge, too,. and of the
sharpest sort.
