fJL'Mn*iliii*av te»tory* A fin* Hhave on Hoard the Tic»Tlia|« It teas rather a close shave, that!" said the Colonel, knocking the ashes oif his cigar, and wiping his loug moustache, after a pull at his brandy aud soda-water. The poor fellow was broke afterwards, and died, 1 heard the oilier day; so I don’t mind telling you how it hap pened. It was during one of oar early cam paigns in China. 1 was only a sub then, though expecting every day to iind nr self ira zett -.1 to a company of “ours,” for the fever had knocked over a good many of iny seniors, aud ju^t till t he very last, I bad got off with only a slight touch ol it. llut, alter a long turn of out-post duty, in the middle of those fearim swamps, I was laid on my back by und hy mir ly, and. when 1 was auoni half dead, gut m a lided home. Home I never expected to reacn. My only chance, I knew, was to eaten the next mail steamer from Hong Kong, and the jour ney down there, weak as 1 wdf» 1 believed would do lor me. However, I determined to riik it thou-h it was more than doubtful whether I should get. there, by land, before the l’etliusular aud Oriental boat started. At the eleventh hour, a tellow I knew slight ly, a countryman ol my own, a commissioner or something iu the Chinese service, came to me aud offered me a passage to Hong Kong, from some little port on the coast, where a Chinese gunboat—the Tien-Tsing she was call ed—was waiting lor him. He was ordered home, loo; aud, being a swell, the government had ordered round the Tien-Tsiug to take him. We were to start the next night—it was only a run of some tea hours—aud should catch the steamer at Hong Kong comfortably. I needn’t tell you I accepted Farquhar’s offer like a shot. It was too good to be refused. The next morning found Furquhar and my self on hoard the T;en-Tsing. A rakish-looking little gunboat she was; English built, of course, and commanded by an Englishman, too, in Chinese pay—a fellow who had been something or other, I never knew what, in our mwy. His name was Gurnock. And a very queer iish 1 thought Captain Gur nock was, as he came out of the deck-house to receive us. A tali, thiu individual, bearded to the qyes, iu a uondescript sort ol uniform, a cutlass at his side aud a six shooter iu his belt, looking more like a stage pirate than anything else. , And what eyes! lean see them now. Di rectly he looked at me, I guessed how he came to have leit ones for iheColeelial service. I suppose you fellows know that when ever a man has had delirium tremens—or “D. T.,” a the India going people call it-his eyes almost invariably tell tales. '1 hey get a look after a touch ofD.T., which nothing else, that I know of, can give tlu m. Some fellows, of course, show it more than others; but the look is there ever alter wards, aud, to an old hand, it’s per fectly unmistakable. I thought Uis eyes looked queer, but the mo ment Tie looked at run I knew what made them look 8»>. Our friend had been a bad ease of 1>. T., of toner than once, perhaps. And Captain Uuruqek certainly drank a good deal of rum tin* evening we came on board the gunboat. Wo all three, he. I, and Farquhar the com missioner, sat iu the deck-cabin till about hall pa-.t eleven. We had elected to sleep there on two little solas under mosquito curtains, iu preference to go d >wn to be sniled below—that is, Farquhar aud 1. The captaiusaui ho should be Oti <ieok during the p.issnge, ami take his chance ot a nap. The sea was as smooth as glass, and we would run down to Hong Kong in eight hours easily, he added. This was good news. No fear of missing the mail boat now; aud as I rolled uiyself on to*uiy sola,and secured the curtains cusctully about me, 1 congratulated myself once more on having fitted iu w ith Far quhur. lie hml, like myself, partly undressed, and, cheroot in mouth, turned in on the opposite sofa. Between us was tin* little cabin table, whereon we had deposited our revolvers. Out there, you know, a fellow never dreams of going to sleep without a revolver handy un der his pillow ; but that night, of course, we know tlie re wa savory little likelihood of a pistol being wanted in such a hurry. The gunboat had got uudor way, and was skimining tin quiet sea like a sea-bird. Far quhar and 1 laid awake a while, chatting and smoking, and teliing one another our yarns of the co id try and the ‘pig-tails,” till insensi bly, we both dropped oil to sleep. l was dreaming of home pleasantly enough, fa..eying myself strolling in the summer twi light by the loch by Gousm Annie’s side, when a row on deck had woke me. A noise of scuf fling and stamping, and then a pistol shot. 1 was broad awake when I heard that.— My first thought was that we had come across a, pirate junk, who had mistaken us lor au unarmed despatch-boat; and, gath ering my sell together, i was just about to spring lroui my sola aud secure my revol ver, which just lay out of my reach on the tabic, when suddenly the cabin doors were burst opeu, aud, w ith a yell that made my blood ru i cord, so absolutely unearthly was it, a man, with a drawn cutiass in one hand aud a sumk in ^ six-shooter in the other, rushed in, whirling the heavy cutlass round his head, and blas pheming and yelling like a iicud. This man followed au imaginary foe a'.i around tue deck house. giving point and slashing away like a madman. lc was Gurnock, foaming at the mouth, his eyes blazing like carbuncles aud starting out of uis head, bonc mad or taken suddenly w ith a lit of D. T. budiouly he halted midway between the two solas. As I met the horrible glare of his eyes, J felt that ii was all up with me. Even if 1 i. ;.1. 4» .. l:_ weaker than a kitten—the close-fastened mos quitoc mains would have hindered my spring and once entangled iu them, lie might hat” cut me down without any trouble. To read my revolver was tint of the question; at tin , tirst attempt he would have “putted” me to ; moral; aud to try aud gain the deck was hope less i'Ue frightened crew had probably holt ed below when the first shot, which had woki nu up, was fired. What was I to do? It was hard, altei through the whole affair without a scratch, to he murdered by a maniac at last— hut that that would be tate 1 never doubted foi a moment. 1 wa., sitting half upright on my little sofa not daring to move—scarcely daring to breathe! Thoughts of the past—thoughts of those neat aud dear to me, Wiiom 1 was never to see again, mingled with strange speculations as to who might got the death vacancy, Hashed like ligntuiug through my brain. Fuoble as I was then, the sweat of this death agony poured down my face like drops of blood. Muttering such words of prayer as men’s lips fashion i a their direst extremity, 1 fell back on my pillow at last. 1 was just in time. Another second, and a bu l< t would have blown my brains out; for at the moment when my head dropped, the mad man tired point blank at lue. i heard the thud of the ball as it buried it self in the bulkhead at my side, aud felt the wind of it across my lace. With the instinct of self-preservation, I lay motionless as a corpse. One sharp slash of the cutlass and the mos quito curtains rouml mo were cut down. And then—theu 1 knew that Gurnock was standing over mo. Never shall 1 forget the moments of horrible suspense which followed. Even now, tome times, iu my sleep, I feel that agony once again. To die thus—I whom the Hu - l ill bullets had spared—who had since carried my life iu my hand so often aud so long —to die like this, helpless, defenceless, after all! Tho whole thing didn't occupy the half of the time it has taken me to tell it to you; but each one ot those ti-w moments during which Gurnock bent over me seemed an age. Death itself was better than tbis°<leath ago ny, surely. More than once 1 had determined to spring on him, and make one struggle, how ever feeble, lor dear life. Aud J think 1 should have done so, if a slight noise behind him hail not startled the madman. He turned sharply round at once, and 1 opened uiy eyes. What follow7.d passed so quickly that it was not lill afterwards that 1 fully understood it all. Farquhar had been roused, like myself, by the pistol shot; but sleeping more heavily than 1, it Had taken him longer to understand what ail tiie row was about. Whin, however, lie s ;w Uunlock standing, cutlass iu hand, beside my soft, he know he had hut one chance to •save me and iriuisclk With his pUiow iu one ban.! he crept cautiously to the foot of his bortu, which was m ured tlie table whereon we had both laid our revolvers,and pushing aside I be curtain, stretched out Jits hand to grasp tlie weapon neatest him. idle slight noise he iM.ide in so doing attracted Guruoek’s atten tion. Liaising his pistol, the latter pulled the trig g< . again. The hammer fell, but no report lbl iowed. The barrel was either unloaded or had miss d fire. Tills saved Fa rqu liar’s life. Fling luo l‘lc cusliiou, which hu<l served hnu for a pillow, and which he still held iu his left hand, full ill the madman s lace, as the latter rushed at him, he ran in under his guard,and with the heavy butt ol Ins own revolver stopped Gur nucii “in his tranks” by one woJl directed blow between the eyefi. Gut the light wasn’t all out of the Captain yet, and lie managed to dray; his adversary down w ith him. i nad sprung to my feet the iiistautGurnovk’s back wa, turned, and now kicked away the heavy cutlass which had fall en from his hand as he w cut down. Once more—smash! came the butt end of I aiqiibai s pistol, and tben tbe other lay mo tionless. And we were sav. d. • it was touch and go, though, Ramsey?” Farquhar sain to me, when tardy assistance had come, anil, bound hand and foot, our would be murderer lay not dead by any means, as I bail at first supposed, but breathing heavily in a sort of stupor. ’ “It was touch and go; for you see, no one could tell that that barrel of iiis was not empty, aud I was afraid to tire for fear of hitting you. However, all’s well that ends well. We shall be at home in less thau two hours; take a pull at my Husk aud turn in again, in the meantime. This beggar won’t gi.e ds any more trouble, aud the crow will got oo lust as well Without him.

Farquhar thought he’d I been puuisbeu enough, so ho told me he should 7 say nothing about the affair. It wouldn't have Ken much use if be had, I dare ay.

Guars:—My giaudcliihl, a lit tle girl ol - 1-2 years old, was taken sick in Portland, Me., in January, lrSts. No one could tell wliat was the matter with her. Hut she wasmugli pressed for breath; had a lutnl, tight cough; could uoi raise; her throat troubled hoi greatly; she seemed to be idling up, and though attended by tlie l»ost physicians in Portland, they could nut help her, and she declined; and for some three months was not ox pee ted to live, llcr doctors, and at length lier friends. gave up all hopes of her recovery. She was brought home to my house in Phipsburg, ,.!c. We tried Cod River Oil, but the ohbet seemed rather opposite from goo.l. She now could not move her hand, so reduced was she. 1 was taking Ra rook ah’s Syrup at the time, acd commenced giving it to her, and in a week, she showed quite a change for the bettor, and we continued giving it to her. She gradually improved, and is now a perfectly healthy child. People were astonished to see what cri'oet the medicine had on tills child, and to sec her get well by the use of taroo kali’s Syrup, which we believe to bo the best medicine for Pulmonary com plaints hi the world.

The saving in freight alone, between tho transportation of the Extract and tho bark, will range from six to eight dollars per cord, so that any one who may get out but three hundred cords of bark ner year, may savo from two thousand to twenty-five hundred dollars in the difference in freight. The Company does not propose to sell Territorial rights, but will grant exclusive privilege to manufac ture in certain localities, dunging a small royalty i»er gallon on the amount manufactured.
