Jfr. Albert Gage will be at the office of the Dexter Bark Association, in tho Grand Pacific Hotel, all day Tuesday, and will give his personal attention to business pertaining to the meeting. In this connection we would call the attention of our country friends to the fact that the Fourth of July can be spent in no more amusing and interesting way than by coming to Chicago and attending the races at Dexter Park.

The fire was caused by using kerosene oil to light a fire. Mrs. Hairle was slightly burned by the ex plosion. The alarm from Box 93 at 12 o’clock last night was occasioned by the discovery of flames in a bam in the rear of No. 492 Burnside street, owned by Sherman Block.

The Legitimacy of His Birth, and the Nature of His Religious Belief. From Scribner's for July. Tho accompanying article was originally prepared by its author (tho pastor of tho First Presbyterian Church in Springfield, HU), os a lecture, and has been repeatedly given In that form to various audiences. At the request of the editor of Scribner's Monthly, to whom it seemed that tho testimony contained in the lecture was of permanent value, it is hero presented with alight alterations, and with no departure from iho rhetorical stylo which was determined by its original purpose. * ' ftTP. UITEH LITE AND RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS OP ApTI/VTTAM LINCOLN, "While the fate and future of tho Christian re ligion in no wise depends upon tho sentiments of Abraham Lincoln, yot tho life and character bf thi« remarkable man belong to tho 'public, to toll for evil or for good on coming generations ; and as tho attempt has been to impute to him the vilest sentiments, even to his dying day, it is fitting *pd Just that the weakness and infidelity charged upon his later life should not go down unchallenged to posterity. Tho latest biography of Mr. Lincoln, published uudor the name of Col. W. H. Lamon, but with tho large co-opera tion of Mr. W. H. Herndon, concerns itself with the endeavor to establish certain allegations in jurious to" the" good dame of that illustrious mad, whoso tragic and untimely death has consecrated his memory in the hearts of a grateful nation, two charges in this biography aro worthy of es pecial notice and disproof—the charge that ho was bom a bastard, and tho charge that ho died an infidel. Mr. Lamon begins bis pleasing task by raising dark and unsound insinuations as to the legitimacy of his hero, and then * occupies from twenty-five to thirty pages to provo that Mr. Lincoln was a confirmed infidel, and died “ playing a sharp game on the Christian commu nity;” that, in his “ morbid ambition for popu larity,” he would say good Lord and good Devil, “ adjusting his religious sentiments to hia polit cal interests.” In meeting those insinuations and charges, I shall necessarily have recourse to political documents and papers, hut it shall no bo my aim to parade Mr. Lincoln’s political opin ions, further than to eliminate from his writings and speeches hia religions sentiments. Ah to the ungracious insinuation that Mr. Lin coln was not the child of lawful wedlock, I have only to say that it is an insinuation unsupported by a shadow of justifiable evidence. The only thing on which Mr. Lamon bases the insinua tion is that he has been unable to find any record of the marriage of Mr. Lincoln’s parents. Just as if it would bo any evidence against tho fact of their marriage if no record could bo found. If every man in this country is to be considered as illegitimate who cannot produce hia parents’ certificate of marriage, or find a record of it in a family Bible anywhere, thero will bo a good many very respectable people in tho same category with Mr, Lincoln. Such an insinuation might bo raised with as much plausibility in tho case of multi tudes of the early settlers of the country. It is a questionable act of friendship thus to rake “ the short aud simple annals of the poor,” and upon such slender evidence raise an insinua tion so unfounded. But I am prepared to show that if Mr. Lamon has found no record of tho marriage of Mr. Lincoln’s parents, it is simply because bo has not extended his re searches as faithfully in this direction as bo has in some others. It appears that there is a well authenticated record of the marriage of Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks, and, in thesazno con nection, the birth of Abraham Lincoln and Sarah Lincoln. Hearing that the Hon. J. C. Black, of Champaign, 111., a warm personal friend of Mr. Lincoln, had in his possession several papers, given to him soon after Mr. Lincoln’s death by a member of the family, and among them a leaf from the family Bible containing the record of the marriage of Mr. Lincoln’s parents, lat once telegraphed to him in relation to this record, aud havo in my possession the following letter, which will explain itself: CiuaiPAiON, UL, Jan. 8,1973. J. A. Retd. Dean Sib : Tour telegram of the 7th reached me this a. m. In reply, permit me to say that 1 was in possession of the leaf of which yon speak, and which contained the record of the marriage of Thos. Lin coln and Nancy Hanks, the birth of Abraham Lincoln and Sarah Lincoln. Tho leaf is very old, and is the lost page of the Apocrypha. It was given to me, with cer tificate of genuineness, by Dennis F. Sanknin 1806. I have sent both record and certificate to William P. Black, attorney at law, 131 LaSalle street, Chicago, 111., and duly by him delivered to the Illinois Histori cal Association. . The Hon. I. N. Arnold called on my brother and obtained the ariginals for use in a revised edition of his life of Lincoln, and I understand that since then they have passed into the hands of Bobcrt Lincoln, Esq., where they were when I last heard from them Hoping that what 1 have written may be of some use, I remain, very truly yours, J. C. Blags. Presuming that the first of Col. Lamon’s li bels upon Air. Lincoln’a memory is thus suf ficiently disposed of, I proceed to consider the charges against his religious life and character. The best refutation of these charges lies on the pages of the book in which they are advanced. However skep tical Air. Lincoln may have been in his earlier life, Air. Lamon persists in asserting and attempting to prove that he continued a confirmed skeptic to the last; that he was an unbeliever in the truth of tho Christian religion, and died an infidel: that, while “ho was by no means free from a kind of belief in tho super natural, he rejected the great facts of Chris tianity as wanting the support of authentic evidence; ” that “ during all the time of his residence at Springfield and in Washington, he never let fall from his lips an expression which remotely, implied the slightest faith in Jesus Christ, aa the Son of God and tho Savior of men:” that “he was'at all times an infidel.”

From twenty-five to thirty pages of evidence is produced in proof of this allegation- .... 1 have been amazed to find that tho principal persons whoso testiznonyis given in this book to grove that their old friend lived and died an in del, never wrote a word of it, and never gave it as their opinion or allowed it to be published as covering their estimate of Air. Lincoln’s life and religious views. They were simply famil iarly interviewed, and their testimony misrepre sented, abridged, and distorted to suit the pur poses of the interviewer, and the business he had on hand. The two gentlemen whose names are most re lied upon, and who stand first on the list of wit nesses to establish the charge these biographers have made, are the Horn John T. Stuart and CoL James H. Hstheny. of Springfield, old and intimate friends of Mr. Lincoln. The Hon. John T- Stuart is an ex-member of Congress, and was Mr. Lincoln’s first law partner —a gentleman of tbe highest standing and ability in his profession, and of unimpeachable in tegrity. Hr. Lamon has attributed to Hr. Stuart testimony of the most disparaging and damaging to Mr. Lincoln’s character and opin ions—testimony which Hr. Stuart utterly repu diates, both as bo language and sentiment, as the following letter shows; SpciNGriELD, Dec, 17,1872. The Rev. J. A. Rud : Deab Sza: My attention has been called to a state ment in relation to the religious opinions of ilr. Lin coln, purporting to have been made by me, and pub lished In JLamon’a Life of Lincoln. Tbe language of that statement is not mine; it was not written by me, and I did not see it until it was in print. I was once interviewed on the subject of Hr. Lin coln’s religious opinions, and doubtless said that Mr. Lincoln was in the earlier part of his life an infidel. I could not have said that “Dr. Smith tried to convert Lincoln from infidelity so. late as 185£, and couldn’t do It.” In relation to that point I stated In the same conversation some facta which axe omitted in that statement, and which 1 wifi briefly repeat: That Eddie, a child of Mr. Lincoln, died In IMB or 1813, and that be and bis wife were in deep grief on that account. That Dr. (Smith, then pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Springfield, at the suggestion of a lady friend of theirs, called upon Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln, and that first visit resulted in great In timacy and friendship between them, lasting till the death of Mr. Lincoln, and continuing with Mrs, Lin coln till the death of Dr. Smith. I stated that I had heard, at tbe time, that Dr, Smith and Mr, Lincoln had much discussion in relation to the truth of the Christian religion, and that Dr. Smith hod furnished Mr.'Lincoln with books to read on that subject, and among others one which had been written by himself, some time previous, on infidelity; and th»t Dr. Smith . claimed that after thl* investigation Hr. Lincoln bad changed his. opinion, and become a believer in, the truth of the Christian religion ", that Mr. Lincoln and myself never conversed upon that subject, and I had no personal knowledge as to his alleged change of opinion. I stated, however, that it was certainly true, up to time ilr. Lincoln had never regu V JUNE 22, 1873. larly siftnded any place of religions •worship, hi& fist after that time h'6 rented a pew in the First Presbyte rian Church, and with Ixl3 family constantly attended the worship In that church untu ho went to Washing ton as President. This much I said at the time,,and can now add that the Hon. Ninlaa W. Edwards’, ofoUv cr-lndaw of 2lr. Lincoln, has, within a few days. In formed ißii that when Mr. Lincoln commenced attend ing the First Presbyterian Church he admitted to him that hia views had th« change claimed by Dr. Smith,' • ... I would further say that Dr„ Smith was a man Of very great ability, and on theological and metaphysical subjects had jew superiors and not many equals. Truthfulness was a prominent trait in Mr. Lincoln!s character, and It would bo impossible for ally intimate friend of his to believe that he ever aimed to dCcnTQ, either by his words or Ms conduct. Yours truly, Similai* testimony, to tho extent of a page or mor& of finely printed matter, Mr. Lamon at tributes to Ool:. James H. Mathcny,.of Spring field, ID., au old acquaintanco of Mr. Lincoln, an able lawyer, and of high standing in the coirt munity. ’ 3lr. Mathcny tesrideti that ho never wrote a word of what is attributed to hint r that it is not a fair representation of either hla lan guage or his opinions, and that he never would have allowed such an article'to bo published as covering his estimate of Mr. Lincoln's life and character. Hero la what this gentleman has to fifty, given over Ins own signature: Si’Bixariai*r), Bee. Id, 1872, Her. J, A. PeM ; Dkaii Sie : Tho language attributed to mo in La inou’s bo*‘k is not from my pen. I did nob write if, and it doo« not express my sentiments of Mr. Lin coln’s entire life and character. It is a mere collection of aaylnga gathered from private conversations that were only true of Mr, Lincoln's earlier life. I would not have allowed such an article to be printed over roy signature os covering my opinion of Mr. Lincoln’s life and religious sentiments. While I do believe Mr. Lincoln to have been an infidel in his former life, when his mind was as yet unformed, and his associa tions principally with rough and skeptical men, yet I believe ho was a very different roan in later life; and that, after associating with a different class of men, and investigating tho subject, he was a firm believer in the Christian religion. Yours truly,- •It is unnecessary that I occupy more space with thd*rcat of the as there is none of it given over tho signature of anybody-save that which is given over the signature of W.-H. Herndon. All aside from this boars evidence of having been manipulated to suit the purpose for which it is wanted, and is cither contradictory, or fails to cover tho whole of Mr. Lincoln’s life. Judge Davis, for instance, is made to say: 1 “ I don’t know anything about Lincoln’s religion, nor do I think anybody else knows anything about it.” Of what value can tho testimony be that is prefaced with such declarations of know ing nothing about tho matter ? John J. Nicolay is made to testify that “to his knowledge Mr. Lincoln did not change hia views after ho came to Washington and yot he states in immediate connection that “ ho does not know what his views were, never having heard him explain them.” Jesse W. Fell either testifies, or is made to testify, to Mr. Lincoln’s skeptical notions. Aud yec Mr. Fell admits that it “ was eight or ten years previous to his death” that ho believed him to be entertaining the views of which he speaks, “ and that he may have changed his sentl~ merits after his removal from among us.” All this would bo strange kind of testimony on which to convict Mr. Lincoln of murder in tho presence of a Judge and jury. But with such evidence it Is sought to convict him Of infidelity. We aro enabled to eco, therefore, in the light of this revelation, of what 14 trustworthy ma terials” this book is composed; how much Mr. Lamon's “names, and dates, and authorities, by which ho strengthens his testimony,” are to be depended upon ; aud what reason unsuspecting or sympathizing critics and journalists have for arriving at the sage conclusion that Mr. Lincoln “ was, in his habit of thought, heterodox in the tho close of hia life, and a very differ ent matt from what ho was supposed to ho.” Tho evidence of this book, so far as tho promi nent witnesses are concerned, and so far &s it relates to tho later years of Sir. Lincoln’s life, is not only utterly untrustworthy, but even an in genious and romantic invention I refer next to the corroborating testimony of Noah Brooks, Eaq,, now associated with the Now York Tribune. Tins gentleman has already pub lished most interesting testimony in relation to Mr. Lincoln’s religious sentiments in Harper's Monthly of July, IBGS. In order that hia testi mony may bo fully appreciated, I will hero state, on tho authority of a mutual friend, that “ Mr. Brooks is himself an earnest Christian man, aud had tho appointment of Private Secretary to the President, to which office ho would havo acced ed had Mr. Lincoln lived. Ho was so intimate with tho President that he visited him socially at limes when others were refused admission* took tea with the family, spending even ings with him, reading to him, and con versing with him freely on social and religious topics, and in my opinion knows more of the secret inner life and religious views of Mr. Lin coln, at least during tho term of his Presidency, tlxan any man living.” The following is a letter which I have received from Mr. Brooks in rela tion to his views of Mr. Lincoln’s religious sen timents : New Tobe, Dec. 31, 1872. Rev. J. A. Reed: Mt Deab Sit. : In addition to -what has appeared from my pea, I will state that I had many conversa tions with Mr. Lincoln, which were more or leas of a religious character, and while I never tried to draw anything like a statement of bis views from him, yet be freely expressed himself to me as having ** a hope of blessed immortality through Jesus Christ.” His views seemed to settle so naturally around that statement, that I considered no other His language seemed not that of an inquirer, but of ono who had a prior settled belief in the fundamental doctrines of the Christian religion. Once or twice, speaking to mo of tho chr.nge which had como upon him, ho said, ■while he could not fix any definite time, yet it was after ho camo here, and I am very positive that in his own mind he identified it about the time of Willie's death. Ho &aid, too, that after ho went to the White House he kept up the habit of daily prayer. Some times ho said it was only ten words, but those ten words he had. There Is no possible reason to suppose that Mr. Lincoln would ever deceive me as to his re ligious sentiments. In many conversations with him, I absorbed tho firm conviction that Dir. Lincoln was at heart a Christian man, believed in the Savior, and was seriously considering the step which would for mally connect him with tho visible church on earth. Certainly, any suggestions as to ilr. Lincoln’s skepti cism or infidelity, to me who knew him intimately from 1862 till the time of his death, Is a monstrous fic tion—ft shocking perversion. Yours truly, • Noah Bnoous. Tho following extract I add also from Ain Brooks’ article in Zlaiyer'a Monthly of July, 18G5: “There was something touching in this childlike and simple reliance on Divine aid, especially when in such extremities as he some times fell into; then, though prayer and reading the Scriptures was his constant habit, ho more earnestly than ever sought that strength which is promised when mortal help faileth. He said once, ‘ I have been many times driven to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I bad nowhere else to go. Aly own wisdom, and that of all about me,. seemed insufficient for that day.* At another time he said, ‘I am sure that if I do not go aw ay from here a wiser man. I shall go away a better man for having learned here what a very poor sort of a man I am.’ ”... The following interesting testimony from the Bev. Dr. Byron Sunderland, of tho First Presby terian Church of Washington City, gives us a little insight into the philosophy of Air. Lin coln’s mind and religious sentiments: Washington City, Nov, 15,1873, Rev. James A, Reed : Deas Bbo.: It was in the last da ye of IBC2, about tV Hmft Mr. Lincoln was seriously contemplating the issuing of the proclamation of emancipation, that I. in company with some friends of the President, called upon Mm. After some conversation, in which he seemed disposed to have his joke and fun. he settled down to a serious consideration of the subject before his mind, and for one half hour poured forth avolume of tho deepest Christian philosophy I ever heard. Ho began by saying: J “ The ways of God are mysterious and profound be yond all comprehension—* who by searching can find Him out?’ Now, judging after the manner of men, taking counsel of our sympathies and feelings, if it had been left to us to determine it, we would have had no war. And going further back to tho occasion of it, we would have had no slavery. And tracing it still further back, we would have had no evil. There la the mystery of the universe which no man can solve, and it is at that point that the human understanding utterly backs down. And then there is nothing left but for the heart of man to take up faith, and believe and trust where it can not reason. Now, I believe wa are all agents and instruments of divine Providence. On both sides we are working out the will of God ; yet bow strange the spectacle! Here is one-half the nation prostrated in prayer that God will help them to destroy the Union and build up a govern ment upon tho corner-stone of human bondage. And here is the other half equally earnest In their prayers and efforts to defeat a purpose which they regard aa so repugnant to their Ideas of human nature and the rights of society, aa well aa liberty and Independene. They want slavery; we want freedom. They want a servile class; we want to make equality practical as far as possible. And they arc Christians, and we are Chris tians, They and we are praying and fighting for re sults exactly the opposite. What must God think of such a position of affairs 7 There la but one solu tion—eclf-deccption. Somewhere there is a fearful heresy in our religion, and I can not think that it hea In the love of liberty and in the aspirations of the hu man soul. ** What I am to do in the present emergency time will determine. I bold myself in my present position and with the authority vested in me as an instrument of Providence. I have my own views and purposes, I havomy convictions of duty, and my notions of what la right to be done. Bull am conscious every mo ment that all I am and all I have is subject to the con trol of a Higher Power, and that power can use mo or not use me in any manner, and at any time, as in His wisdom and might may be pleasing to him. ** Nevertheless, lam no fatalist.' I believe In the supremacy of the human conscience, and that men are responsible beings; that God lias a right to bold them, and will hold them, to a strict personal account for the deeds done In the body. Bat, sirs, Ido not mean to give vou a lecture upon the doctrines of the Christian religion. These are simply with mo tho convictions and fealitfea of great and vital truths, the fnwcr and £cmsnatratipfl 01 which I see now in the light of this cur national straggle a* I have never seen before. God only knows the festlfl Of this business. He has destroyed nationsffbtn . the map of history for their sins. Nevertheless icy hopes prevail generally above my fesrs for our own Republic. - The lltdss are dark, the dplrlta of. ruin aro abroad in all their pCrWeT f and the mercy Of God alone can save us.” So did the Preiid«iit discourse until wo ffeTt We’ were imposing on his time, and rising, wo took our leave of him, confident that he would bd chi© to those convic tions of right and duty which were derived from so deep a Christian philosophy. Tours truly,- BTBOX SCKDEfItaJTP. The Rot. 3>t. Miner, pastorof the Firat Baptist Church, of Springfield, who was intimately ac quainted with Sir. linrolh, end visited him and his family Hi Washington prevloUa to his death, has left most iuieresting testimony in reference to Mr. Lincoln's religions sentiments, confirma tory of what has been gives* and which is pre served in the archives of the University of Chi- Wga. Dr, Miner Bums up his impressions of Mr. Xiucolh as follows: “All that was said during that memorable afternoon I spent alone with that great and good man is engraven too deeply on mv memory ever to be effaced. -1 felt certain of this fact; that if Mr. Lincoln was not really an experimental Christian. hfl was acting like one. He was doing ins duty manfully, and look ing to God for help in lime of need I.*??’ like the immortal Washington, bo believed in the efficacy of prayer, and it 1 113 custom to read the Scriptures and himself.” And here I would relate an incident which occurred on the 4th of March, 1861, as told mo by Mrs; linoolfn Said she: 41 Mr. Lin cola wrote the conclusion of his inaugural ad dress the morning it was delivered/ Tli.o family being present, ho read it to Ho then said ho mailed to be left alone foir a short time. The family retired to an adjoining room,- bat not ao far distant hut that the voice of prayer could bo distinctly heard. There, closeted with God alone, surrounded by the enemies who were ready to take hia life, he commended his coun try’s cause and all dear to him to God’s provi dential care, and with a mind calmed with com munion with his Father in Heaven, and courage equal to the danger, ho came forth from his re tirement! ready for duty.” .... Hia disposition to attend the theatre in later life (if to any one it eoems to need apology) was not so much a fondness for the play-house as i relief from his mental anxiety, snd an escape from, the incessant pressure of vimeerrs at the White House. “It is a well-known fact,” says Dr. Miner, “ that be would not he ro been at the theatre On that fatal night, but to escape the multitude who were that evening pressing into the White House to shako hands with him. It has been said that Mrs. Lincoln urged hor husband to go to the theatre against his will. This is not true. On the contrary, she tried to persuade him not to go, but he in sisted. Ho said, ‘I must have a little rest. A large and overjoyed, excited people will visit me to-night. My arms are lame by shaking hands with the multitude, and tha people will puli mo to pieces.* Ho went to the theatre, not because he was interested in the play, but because he was care;, urn and needed quiet and repose. M*S< Lincoln informed mo that he seemed to take no notice of what was going on in the theatre from the time he entered it till the discharge of the fatal pistol. She said that the last day he lived was the happiest of his life. The wery last moment of hia conscious life was spent in conversation with her about his future plans and what he wanted to do when his term of office expired. He said he wanted to visit the Holy Land and see the places hallowed. by the foot prints of the Savior, Ho was paying there was no city he so much desired to see as Jerusalem ; and with that word half spoken on his tongue/ the bullet of the assassin entered his brain, ana the soul of the great and good President was carried by angels to the Kew Jertfsalcm above.” J. JL P.r.r.n. John T. Stuaitt. James H; Mathent. It does not make any difference whether your name ie Keyaer or not, if you want to buy & dog, there is one for sale cheap on a canal-boat now braving the billows somewhere east of Frank fort. The Captain of the boat is an Oawogo man, and it is but one short week since he spliced his mainbraco and lot out the reefs in hia driver, and got three sheets in the wind, and made all necessary prepara tions for a prosperous voyage, Ilia wife sung, “Write Me a Letter, Love,” in tho cabin ; Ida children played on deck; his steeds aired their frames on tho tow-path, his hand was on the rudder, and his mate was just recovering from his farewell attack of delirium tremens m tho forward cabin. The Captain gazed proudly around him, and could think of nothing necessary to complete hia happiness: but bis wife, wiser than he, thought they needed a dog—a nice Newfoundland—to play with the children, fish them oht when they fell in the canal, and watch tho deck hands when the Cap tain was off after groceries. Coming through West Utica yesterday, tho Captain bought a nice Newfoundland dog. He got him at a bargain; in fact, he got him for nothing, so to speak, because the man who owned the dog was not around at the time tho bargain was made. Tho Captain had tho dog, but still he was not happy, Tho dog had a way of barking at passing crafts, and so drew upon his Captain’s boat frequent showers of cool and wood, and ho would dive down the steep steps into the cabin suddenly and upset the Captain’s wife. Once he lit right on tho table and spoiled a pound of butter, and he was. altogether too playful. Yesterday the Captain, who is a pious man, tied up, and put out his plank just east of this city, and started with his children to go to the park and to observe tho day after tho manner of thin vicinity. Tho dog stoned, too, and as soon as he got on shore he began to caper and wag his tail, and so wagged one of tho children fat on its blessed back. The baby yelled, and the Cap* tain made some tender remarks as he set it on his pious feet, and some other remarks as he shook bis list at tho dog. The dog misunderstood the man, and came running back, full of fun. and made a jump to link bis face. He missed tho man, hut he knocked tho other child into tho canal, and the father, without waiting to make any remarks, jumped in after it. The dog, be ing to the water born, knew just what to do, and ho went cavorting on to get a good headway, barking to himself at every jump, and, just as the man got to the top of the water with his darling child, tho dog took a flying leap of about twenty foot and struck on top of tho man. Well, the water that man spurted around was boiling hot with the oaths be spattered with it, and his wifo pranced around on the deck cf the boat, and dung a pole to tho old man, which the dog promptly dragged and pulled ashore, and that Captain was nearly drowned before ho trod tho sod again. The dog is an intelligent animal—very intelli gent, indeed; and just as soou as he saw that mariner’s face he knew that something was wrong ; so he slunk up tho plank on hoard. The Captain gathered what loose granite and lumber ho could m a hurried and earnest search, and marched up the plank, the grimmest figure of Neptuno ever done in Mohawk Valley mud. As soon as he got on hoard he opened a hot fire on the dog, and that sagacious brute went yelping through tho forward hatch and struck in tho bunk, whore the mate lay musing about the devil. When the mate saw tho dog ho thought the evil one had come for him sure enough, and ho braced himself for one last fight, so that when the Captain jumped down in pursuit of tho dog there was a mutual misunderstanding all around. Tho Captain’s wife looked down and tried to ex plain, but there was a confused whirlpool of bunk boards, and hair, and bedding, and legs, and arms, with an occasional infusion of dog, that it seemed Idle to waste her breath in taking such a circus. ' To-day the bow of that fated craft cuts the wa ters solemnly, and at the helm stands the wreck of that Captain, fastened together with strips of plaster, and smelling of liniment, and ever and anon he surrenders tne rudder to iua wife, while be goes forward to hammer a dejected dog, which is for sale, or to listen to the ravings of the confined under the forward hatch.
