At this time tha wind was blowing

ran out about twenty fathoms of

stopped and for a short time breasted
bravely the wind and tide. Hut in a

The 1 Massachusetts cleared away

collision, not daring to ship the an
chor for fear of running herself upon
the sand bar in close proximity or
drifting into the Texan. Faster and
taster went the lirooklyn towards the
battle ship and the men at the sta

duty assigned them in case of collision.
.There was no confusion. On the

Clever seamanship, perfect discipline

The decision of the Portuguese gov'

all over Missouri, from civilian, mili
tiamen and recruit alike, goes up a
cry of protest at the dilatory tactics of
the state authorities in not moving to
the front, or at least to a concentra
tion camp, the quota of troops called
from Missouri by the War department
The fact Is, Missouri's troops have not
been called , out because there is
neither money nor equipment to do it
When last in session the legislature
placed only ill), 000 aside, for the sup

There is considerable talk here among
the ofliccra in the military camp about
some of the wht new published in the
East. It is well known here that
Ma jor General llrooke received orders
from Washington marked confidential
which are read in the newspapers
twenty-four hours before they reached
him. The publication of the move'
inents of Lieutenant Rowan, who was
sent to (iaium, is deplored, as it is be
lieved it is liable to cost that daring
officer his life by informing Blanco of
Kowan's whereabouts and mission,
and it would not be surprising, in
view of the unscrupulous publication
of army secrets, if the government
went to greater, extremes in its cen
sorship of the press than ever before.

DaKobert, ah reviving Iioje. "All nonesi men

" Well d ne, brother!" said Agricola.
"M. Notary," said llodin, in bis little sharp
voice, "please to explain to Abbe oabriel, that lie
may perjure himself as much as he thinks fit,
but that the civil code is much less easy to vio
late than a mere promise, which is only
sacred ! "
' Speak, sir," said Gabriel.
" Please to inform Abbe (labriel, resumed liod
in, "that a deed of gift, like that made in favor
of Father d'Aigrigny, can only be camelled f-r
one of three reasons is it not so? "
" Yes sir, for three reasons," said the notary.
"The first is in case of the birth of a child."
said Rodin, "and I should blush to mention Mich
a contingency to the Abbe Gabriel. The second
is the ingratitude of the doner and the Abbe
Gabriel may be certain of our deep and lasting
cratitude The last case is the non-fulfilment of
the wishes of Ihe donor, with regard to the em
ployment of his gifts. Now, although the Abbe
Gabriel may have s ddenly conceived a very bad
opinion of us, he will at least give-us some time
to show that his gifts have been disposed of ac
cording to his wishes, and applied to the Greater
Glory of the Lord."
' Now, M. Notary," added Father . d'Aigrigny,
" it is for you to decide and say, if Abbe Gabriel
can revoke the donation he has made."
