A sign a so we a ordered aloft to Rig la the tech anew. Cha son of Jethro who had my himself on Board against his a exp Caa orders Aad Ufeo had a an important discovery of Lacustrine habitations has been made near Oolom-b4er, Switzerland. During the latter part of january some workmen excavating the foundations for a new building clone to the Lake came across some huge Flat rocks. A a hands a so a human in a placed evidently by��hm0hhhi horizontal position and lying near each other on a Ter Emmma Ign a Amhi ability a Vei which a once in All Proba natural surface. Each \. A Boulder brought apparently and covered a Square Cavil with Aqaba of Stone and a Blimp with tight gravel a and Sand. Do of these Square cavities or a Graves Baa Besa carefully cleared and a proved to contain fourteen skeletons of a adult and Cue of a child All in very fair i preservation. The form of the skulls is 4�id totto to Fec the very Early Type Gen i a rally identified with the rude Early Cave dwellers and some brass rings found in vacate the use of that Metal at any rite Al r ornament. A Stone Hatchet was also Ifo Tad and a number of bears Teeth a pierced for slanging. Hardly made his peace with him yet heard the order and seizing the end of the rope with his Teeth ran up the fore a Rouas crept out on the top of the fore a like a Monkey and then out on the Boom. But before he had hah done his task the Frenchman brought their Long Tona charged with Small shot to Bear upon the Yard and let Fly at Isaac thinking probably the additional sail might enable the grampus to escape. Young coffin was unharmed though the balls whistled about him like Hail and he went fearlessly on with his work. A they Are charging the gun again a shouted Jethro. A come Down my boy creep in creep in i catch the Hilliards and come Down with a run a a May a a cried Isaac As he finished reeling the tack and gathering a few fathoms in his hand threw the Coil Down on the forecastle and the men then hoisted sail instantly. The Frenchman aimed his gun again but Isaac was descending like a Flash and As he reached the deck the sailors fairly hugged him in their Joy and admiration of his bravery. The Hasty strides of Beth were again arrested by another shot which passed through the sail Over his head. He Cleu bed his hands Tad looked up at the torn sail. A by heavens a said he a i will not part with so Fine a ship and cargo without a deadly a a swear not a said Jethro a a it will not help us in our Strait. We had better yield quietly to the necessity. Put Down the Lielani 8etli, and bring the ship a a yield quietly didst thou say did i understand thee aright when thou bids me bring the ship to a tie eyes of Beth glared upon Jethro and his nostrils uis tended like a Bull at Bay. A put Down the Helm indeed Jethro coffin who is commander of the grampus thou or i a demanded Macy in a heat of passion. Jethro answered calmly a a thou surely Art her Captain. Save the ship if thou canst but thou cart not. We have no i Means of defense and if we bad it would not be justifiable to oppose with a Jethro i will save this ship or sink in her. What yield to that Little Gad Fly a Gall Nipper that is scarcely larger than our Long boat a another shot better directed splintered the mainmast a Little and wounded two men. A there Jethro that is some of tie tender mercy of the French pirates a foretaste of what we May expect if taken a a a yield Seth the longer thou delay the More Hazard to the lives of our people he is a Man of War a a a a go thou below Jethro i command Here yield indeed a he muttered As Jethro began to descend �?o1 will sink first a a stand by there men a shouted Seth in a voice which made every Sailor Start. It was evident that he had put off the Quaker and tie men responded heartily to it. A get the Long boat ready to lie launched at a moments warning Clear away the Quarter boats and see All Clear to lower them in an instant. Mate take in All the Small sail at Macy a voice and manner were Resolute and peremptory and the Man executed the orders promptly and were ready Tor tie next though wondering wha 1 the Captain meant 4o do. The frenchmen was also at fault taking the mane vering of 8cth for an intention to give up his ship and Hove the Schooner to and waited the lowering of a boat from the grampus. In rounding to As Seth Hail calculated the frenchmen jihad Given the advantage of the wind to the ship and while his men toe nil Afna at the reap Hemsat of the larger vessel which they looked upon As a prize Beth seized the Helm in his Brawny and. Th6meu scarcely needed the Wora but anticipated his intention As he put the Helm Hara up and in a compressed but concentrated voice which was heard distinctly from Stem to Stern he said a a let go All the braces and bowline Slack Oft sheets and tacks and Square the Yards Triick Quot it was done in a twinkling and Macy shaped his Eouse As though he would bring his ship under lec Quarter of the Privateer. This feint completely deceived the enemy when Seth suddenly changed her course and brought her head to Bear directly upon the Hull of the Frenchman. Her Crew discovered now but too late the design of the grampus and dire confusion ensued upon the crowded decks. A a if thou Dost intend to run her Down a said Jethro to Beth hurriedly projecting his head a moment from the Cabin Gangway a a if nay hear me Seth for the Sake of humanity if thou Art determined to run her Down ease thy Helm a Little and give them a Chance for their a stand by to lower the boats a thundered Seth stamping furiously upon the deck. A groan of horror escaped his own Crew for not till this moment had they really seen the design of their Captain and the Swart Hiest Cheek grew a Shade Aler but it was for their lives and they new it. The Schooner Lay in the trough of the sea her decks covered with confusion and the huge Hulk of the Gram us posing on the last High wave above or. A Miu Ricarde a a wild yell of despair heard far above the dashing of the ship and Rushing of the Waters Buret from the doomed Frenchman an instant and Down came the grampus foaming Aud thundering upon the Privateer. Her plunging Bow striking her just amidships Cut the Small vessel directly in two and her heavy armament together with the tremendous Force of the severing blow sent her beneath the Waves to Rise no More and All her ii fated Crew of one Hundred and fifty souls went under with her a few struggled a moment in the mighty vortex but were carried Down uni the next wave effaced every babble of the mass of human life so terribly and instantly quenched. A a Down with the boats from the Quarter a launch the Long boat a the command though it could not have been uttered or executed sooner with safety came too late. The aim of Seth had been too foully sure. His own boat narrowly escaped being sucked into the Whirlpool made by tie Mykl a Schooner and not one of the Frenchman screw Rose or again saw the foce of Day. Beth entered the Cabin and walking up to Jethro said a a the grampus is saved but it been less costly if thou had been Wiser at Nantucket. Hereafter in times like these Arm thy ships the Best Way to be at peace is to show thyself ready Tor Ami bowing his head upon his hand Jethro answered nothing. Uncle Daniel Drew. Commenting on the recent failure of the noted Wall Street operator Daniel Drew the new York world says Uncle Daniel is the oldest looking Man that Ever lived in the flurry of Wail Street and entirely paternal and benign in voice and aspect. The rest of the Street was to him always a a the boys a and it was two to one that any individual operator of the present generation was a a my Sony if he found the old gentleman in a benevolent mood. Since his calamity with nor West in 1872, when his dear Friend Gould persuaded him to sell that pleasant Region out and buy himself of Erie or. Gould further accommodating him by Selling him the said Erie to any amount since then when nor West went up and Erie Down to the extreme entrapment of Uncle Daniel his rugged face and attenuated form have been Little seen on the Street. His last recorded words on that occasion were a a was Al they Tell me nor West a he was first in the Street in 1836, and even then be was forty years old. But it was not till he encountered Vanderbilt whose ally he was for a Long in repeated conflict that he began to have any nicknames. Strange As it looks nowadays the joint efforts of Vanderbilt and Drew saved Erie from trouble in �?T57 but within the next ten years a separation entirely definite was effected Between them they were remarkably opposite men. One of them watched for a time to Buckl and Plant and the other for a time to tear Down and Pluck up that which was planted. Vanderbilt has been a life Long a a Bull a probably from a mixture of reasons he has looked More to general results stuck to a Good thing even from policy for the Good of it As Well As for profit and was a terror to a a the Street Only when having quietly minded his own business for a season lie found his a a Harlem going Down under a vicious attack. Then he blazed out and sent it up to the skies mercilessly As Well As irresistibly and if Uncle Daniel was in the Way As he was in 1864, it was bad for Uncle Daniel. Drew on the other hand with a shrewd Subtle mind has netted miscellaneous by the nearest Gudgeon Small Fry and Large seizing the nearest Opportunity and look ing to the immediate result. He was a a a bears from Choice As Vanderbilt was a a a Bull from conviction. He did no to value a a sheers for what they represented but for what he could do with them at such and such a juncture. He worked with enormous sagacity and when he was at work and he was incessant from 1860 or thereabouts to 1873�?he was accumulating disaster for Soiree of the boys. A curious cynicism seems to have controlled him in his personal Intercourse with other speculators. If it was not his habit to personally convey to them information particularly untrustworthy and a a pints essentially disastrous All Lor base purposes of gain lie hits been singularly misrepresented. A Yass i skinned the boys a is one of his surviving sayings. Leport even credits him with skinning other than the Joys. He has lived two lives himself and at Home or in the Church been a stranger entirely to the Speculator Drew. Possibly it was his desire to monopolize this a a straddle of the world a lie is said to have invented straddling of tie Market that made him a delusion and a snare to deacons. The bitter Stock gambling experiences of Many deacons Are in common report linked with his name. He had Len on the Street so Long that reminiscences of this sort Are assuming the Mist of tradition. The commonest myth goes that unnumbered deacons about the time or. Drew had made his munificent gifts to the theological Seminary which bears Bis name tiring of the straight Road to wealth that begins in Corn Fields and country grocery stores decided to try and with his goodly help climb up some other Way. When they tapped him with Many excuses and explanations and All the diffidence that came of opening their secret hearts at a venture urea major departed from his sedate and dry habit and flowed amazing geniality and sweetness. Deacon after Deacon came up fidgety and departed comforted buying he did no to u these was sense horse racing up is Point Breeze one Day last fall and Butterwick attended to witness it. On his Way Home in the cars in the afternoon he encountered Bev. Or. Potts a Clergyman who knew no More about horse racing than a Hindoo knows about seven up. Butterwick however took for granted in his usual Way that the doctor was familiar with the subject and taking a seat beside him he remarked f a i was out at Point Breeze to Day to see a indeed. Was he there where did you say he was a a Why Over yer at Point Breeze. I saw him and Gen. Harney and a lot More of Mem. He run agin Gen. Harney and it created a big excitement too but he led the general badly and the Way the crowd cheered him was wonderful. They say that a Good Deal of Money changed hands. The fact is i had a Small bet upon tie general a a \ of done to mean to Tell me that Longfellow actually beat Gen. Harney a a yes i do beat him the wont kind. You a hardly ave thought it now would Vou ? i was never More surprised in my life what a queer about it is that he seemed just is fresh afterwards As before he commenced. Did no to faze him a bit. Why instead of wanting to rest he was jumping around just As Lively and when the crowd began to push around him in kicked a boy in the stomach and doubled him All up nearly killed him. Of lies wicked i Trust him As for As i could see a a this is simply astonishing a said the doctor. A i have believed it possible. Are your err it was Longfellow or. Butterwick a a Why certainly of course in be seen in in often before. And after breathing awhile he and Maggie Mitchel Caine out and As soon As the stepped off lie put on an extra spurt or two and led her by a neck All around the place and she came in puffing and blowing and nearly exhausted. I never took much Stock in her a a Levi her by the neck Why this is the most scandalous conduct i Ever heard of. Or. Butterwick you must certainly be a a i pledge you my word its the solemn truth. I saw it myself. Am after that judge Fullerton and Gen. Air no a they took a turn together and that was the prettiest cutest of the Day first the judged make a Bolt and beat the general and then the general \1 put in the big licks and give it to the judge Ami tin two a be about even for awhile Ami Allol a sudden the general would give a Kinder Jerk or two and leave tie judge ju4 no wheres and by the time the general. Passed the third Quarter tie judge keeled Over against tie Fence Anro gave in. They say he broke his leg but i done to Knoxjr if that a so or not. Anyway he was used up. If head passed that Quarter he might have been ail a what was the matter with the Quarter Wasny to it Good a a a of yes. But you Sec the judge must have lost his wind or something and i reckon when he tumbled it was some thing like a faint you a served him right for engaging in such a brutal a a Well i Dunno. Depends of How you look at such tilings. And when that who Over Longfellow entered with Mattie Evelyn. He kept shooting past her All the time and this worried her so that she ran a Little to one Side and somehow i Dunno How it happened but his leg Kinder tripped her Aud she rolled Over of tic ground Hurt pretty bad i think while Longfellow had his leg Cut pretty nearly to the a a did any of the shots strike her a a a i done to understand a a you said he kept shooting close to her and i thought maybe some of the bullets might have struck a a Why i meant that he ran her. Of course. Tiow the Dickins could he shoot bullets at her a a a i thought May be he had a gun. But 1 done to understand any of it. It is the Erie. Under these circumstances it was most astounding tiling i Ever heard of at a blow to them All to have the Good am kind old Man depress Erie a Point or 30 and placidly acquire their margins. If they came Back disconsolate a Stop Flieck Elatin it ainu to right to tech Erie with no margin a was their traditional a Consolation. Erie and injunctions became in 1867 in separable and Daniel tasted too deeply of his own devices. It was in this year he last encountered the terrible Commodore and was tremendously beaten. Erie Wras the old love of both but Daniel did no to profit enough from the lesson he had got in 1864 to keep out of Vanderbilt a Way Here on his own Peculiar ground. Vanderbilt and his friends had a control Ling interest in Erie in 1867, and determined to get Drew out of the directory. That was bitter for the old Man and he begged off. The Commodore relented Ana Drew stayed. His fingers itched nevertheless for their old trick with the elastic certificates and suddenly a Pool in the Vanderbilt interest a a bulling the Stock was brought up by an enormous Load quickly dropped upon it by Uncle Dan 6f course. Now this to the Commodore was treachery and we Hile Uncle Dan chuckled h suddenly was inline from paying Himsel some three and a half millions he had Lent the Road and his removal As Treasur was asked of the court. Then he was Bidden to Issue any More Stock and a made a very hard Row for the old Man to Hoe. Fisk and Gould were around in those times. Uncle Daniel had introduced the former to the Street and picked him clean but the Young Man had grit in him and conquered a peace. Probably the Merit of the new device was Htoy the Nerit of cheerfully accepting it waa Uncle Daniels at any rate. They got out injunction to the contrary notwithstanding 50,000 new shares of Stock. This they dropped on the com mod Ore and he took it like a Man but the Price went Down. Tie Commodore began proceedings for contempt and the Trio fled to Jersey. Uncle Daniel did no to like Jersey he was old and he wanted to get Home. He went to the Commodore and begged off again and the Commodore let him off. Even yet Hia tricks did not end. The Trio a locked up $14,000,000 greenbacks to depress Erie again but in Drew gave out some said to help a Tomas end in i for this his co conspirators punished him by loosening up Erie. The a Piaree and lost Money and Sena ing. V�?~�?T1 Man was Short 70.000 million and a half. But it waa Gould in nor West who ended Drew. The old Man lost a million and a Quarter one Way and sacrificed his Erie Stock another Way. Unlucky dealt lags in his favorite a a Way Bosh sneers end in that remarkable vanity known a a a quicksilver a with a responsibility on Bis endorsements for $306,000 on Kenyon.

A the culmination of the revival in Newville pa., is seen in the increased membership to the number of nearly 400.
