It was only a lea's degree of joyousness that I felt when from tho deck of an ocean steamer I got my first distinct view of the broad and billowy Atlantic. I had read books of voyages by the scoro before ever I had known the need of a razor. Marryatt and Cooper were favorite novelists with me ia my boyhood. I still retain a lively remembrance of Long Tom Coftin, the typical boatswain, and of the striking adventures of the Red Rover. Not unfrequently I dreamed at nights of the "vasty ploughed by those mighty ships that "weave the continents to- gether." Such, indeed, was my boyish en- thusiasm that r have often thought that if I had been reared at a seaport. I might have Started in life as a stowaway, and not as a beardless student of Blaekstone. I gravely question if Byron was ever con- icious of a greater yearning "to lay his band upon old ocean's mauo and over wanton with its and yet, after aU, I was the veriest lubber in a half-dozen states. I had reached my majority before I bad ever snuffed tho salt sea gale, or glimpsed at a single brood of Mother Carey's chickens. During my first and only storm at sea I fully realized my utter niifitneas for a aea-faring life. How I longed for a foothold on terra Jirma. As I lay in my berth at midnight, and heard the stout ship with a heavy sea, and felt her quiver from, stem to stern. I recalled that I had tbe full sympathy of my brother passed midshipmen, and, iudeed, most of the utncers and all tlio crew."

We landed at Monterey and in a solemn manner un- furled the.American flag, and by this imposing ceremony took possession of tho country. This, in the parlance of the lawyers, was a kind of wholesale livery of seizin. Of nourse tbe affair would have been farcical, but for the fact that we were backed by the whole power, military aud naval, of the gover- "Were you we asfcedi "with Commo- dore Perry when he negotiated the treaty of commerce with the He replied. "I was on board of the Susquenanna, one of the best ships pf our East Indian squadron. It wan an historical occasion, when we landed over marines on the const of Jeddo, one of the largest islands of the Japanese group. Hard by, with heavy Kttns bearing on the island, was our fleet composed of seven, of the best ships of the old navy. In a unique building elevated for the purpose. Commodore Perry, with his staff, met the representatives of the the brother of tlie sun, tho first cousin of tbe moon the near kiusman of innumerable stars, with a few comets thrown in for good measure. There was about that affair but little of the Tod-taplsui of Downing street. Our gallant Perry being a plain, blunt man. with an eye for business, it did not require much diplomatic palaver to break the seal of seclu- sion that had for so long a time isolated Japan from western civilization. The little Dutch trading port at .Nagasaki was lost sight of, and the best ports of the empire were henceforth open to American commerce. We begin now to reap the reward of that naval enterprise iu the vast increase of com- mercial exchanges and in the rapid growth of Christianity in a country where a half century BEDRIDDEN. Choking! Wheezing and sneezing! Coughing and snuiinfi! Aching, quaking'and shaking! Burning, rolling, tossing, and tho world go- ing around east and west, north and south all at the same time. Was ever a poor mortal so beset? The aver- age newspaper man is a man of sorrow and ac- quainted with grief, and when he does turn his toes up all liis sins step on him with all four feet. During the last few years my conscience and rao have been getting along pretty well to- gether. Even in my lucid intervals the still small voice didn't hare much to say. But during the last few my coun- trymen Haven't I caught it, though At first it seemed that a section of a Dakota blizzard had smote me under the fifth rib, and it took me up and shook me as a terrier would shake a rat. Then I had a taste of the fiery furnace seven times heated, but thauks to charitable nature, oblivion came kindly to my rescue then, and the physical pain was numbed, if not soothed, by delirium. But tbe poor, orphaned thougbtsof a be- wildered brain, knowing nothing better to do, retrace their steps and wander about among the beaten paths ot tlie past. Thus it_came about that I went over to the Union Woman's Christian Temperance at least twenty- convention ago children were taught to trample on tbe faith. the despised symbol of the Christian with vividness the ode of Horace in which he berates the folly of the man who first tempted the "treacherous sea." But somehow I still have a fancy for the legends of the forecastle, and have never lost interest in the marvels and mysteries of the deep sea. Men that have gono down "to the sea in ships" atill have a hold and sympathy-'' more and veneration. than Captain tetter Highland chieftain. It was he that fought the Alabama against the Kearsarge off the French port of Cher- bourg. A wooden ship against an the latter having the heavier battery and a larger crew. The contest was as unequal as if a light-weight pugilist should enter the with his bare knuckles to exchange blows with a heavy-weight with a mailed hand. How did it happen, I inquired of Captain Kelt, a few days ago, that you sailed out of port to tight against such odds? "Well, "he replied, "you must remember that we could not have 'remained much longer in Cherbourg without going into dock. This would have demoralized and probably dispersed our greatly embarrassed crew, in ami thus all our ur future efforts to cripple the commerce of the enemy. Another consideration which was not without weight was that the alternative offered us was either to fight the Kearsarge singly, or to delay and fight her and such rein- forcements as she was sure to receive iii a few days. But, besides, we did not know that she an armored ship until Admiral Semmes. who was in the rig-ing, noticed that neither our shells nor our solid shot made any impres- sion, but foil off into tho water. We did. it is true, plant a hundred-pound stiell in her stern post, and but for a defective fuso, that single shot might have disabled our enemy or sent her to the bottom. Once into the fight we must needs make the best possible of a bad sit- nation. "Did they firo on you, captain, after you hail hauled down yonr "Most assuredly, they poured several broadsides into Ala- bama after we had surrendered. A number of our gallant seaman wore killed and wounded by this murderous fire." "When it became evident that the Alabama was sinking, did they make an honest effort to save your men who had leaped overboard0" ''By no means. They did pick up a few, but tho loss of life would have heen much greater if it had not been for the rnous conduct of tho yacht, the Deer- What about the superstitions oE the sailor and tbe crossing of the line concerning which wo formerly read .so much in the old story- books of the nursery? replied the captain, "these aro passing away as the years go by. Old Neptune aniled with, his trident rarely comes up the ship's side as in former tbe consterna- tion of the fresh water sailors and the younger middies. The average sailor, however, has not yot over- come his aversion to leaving port on his dislike to carrying a dead body on ship- board." "What have you to say about the qualities of the American "Only the thoroughbred down- eastor is tho best seaman that sails the ocean. He is handy aud trusty, and haa little dread of storms or shells. Next to him, and in special directions superior to him, is the British tar who followed Nelson and Colling- wood in their great ocean victories. Compar- atively few sailors are of southern birth or blood, but some of the best men on tbe Sumier and Alabama were shipped at Charleston and Savannah. Not a few of the best naval officers in the yankee service during the late war were bouthern men. Of these we name Farragut and Hewitt. Indeed, the great body of our southern born naval officers, from Maryland to Texas, followed the leadership of Hollins and Raphael Semines, and that "old aea dog" Tatnall, who cast their lot with their native southland. The record they marie with the Merrimac, the Sumter, the Shenandoah, and, above all, with the peerless and ill-fated Alabama, is one of which their countrymen need not be ashamed. But the noble old sea-fighter must hurry off to Smmyside where his noble wife and only sou, the future admiral, await his coming. At the risk of incurring Captain Kail's dis- pleasure we reproduce, without his knowledge, a letter from bis old commander addressed to his godson, the little boy already referred to in tho foregoing sentence. It pre- sents Admiral Bemmes in a new rple, and shows that a great man may have on occasion the simplicity and gentleness of a little child. MOBILE, Ala., May 6, Dear Little Godson: I have received your little letter, together with your likeness. You have grown to be quite a little man since I saw you. You are no doubt acquiring to learn to spell and by and by you will be a "big boy" and go to school. I aui soriy to hear that your papa is not very well. Tell mamma to take good care of him. In tho meantime you must be a good little boy and do all papa aud you. so that you may grow up to be a man like your papa. Your affectionate godfather, R. SEMMES. five times in twenty-four hours, and I heard the speephes and the songs all again. AH day long I had lain tossing about in a kind of wild dream that was something more and something less than a dream; and sud- denly I heard the familiar strains "How firm a foundation Ye saints ol the Lord." And then tho organ pealed' forth. and with, a start I awoke to consciousness. It was the clock striking 12! There is something peculiar about that clock. When it strikes there is a a sort of low wailing sound like tho voice of some mortal in pain. If ever a clock had some secret sorrow that one has, because it cries, yes, cries when it strikes.

At first he would lean it up against a pillar on the porch, but it has got so weak now that he has to lay it down tenderly. Sick as I was I laughed when I beard him lay it down to rest with a sigh, and he doubt- less dropped a tear when he thought how its step-mamma, the hydrant, missed it after the last pressure of its cold lips at parting. But my mind wanders. Sick people's minds are liable to do that, and even well people's, occasionally; and I know some whose minds, in infancy, wandered so far off that they could never find their way back.

My wife is too, but then ah e always splits his pills in half, opens tbe capsules and empties the bitterness out of them before she chews them up, and vows she can only swallow half a dose of his solu- tions at once.

My wife found that was I losing my grip, and some other grip was getting the uuderholt on me, aud she went for the doctor. He came, lie saw, be conquered. Not only did he triumph over the disease, but be used my poor remains to grace bis triumph. I was too sick to care much, but from the best I can remember, the following account of his didos is measurably accurate, or will answer all the purposes of newspaner accuracy. "Hello, what's the matter, old "Sick, doctor." Then ho took my fine Italian hand in his and felt of my wrist and looked at his watch. humph! see your tongue." With all my remaining strength I ran my truthful organ of English speech out until it touched my chin. "Um, humph! Been eating free lunch. Ought never to eat cheese with free lunch. Dead give-away. Common cheese used for that purpose gets intolthe pores of your tongue and will tell on you for days after. That'll do."
