Thin was the Involuntary exclamation
that came from several of the group of
bluejackets (jattiprnd about tlie main
maHt of the Colorado, when the nw
lieutenant we were expecting came up
tlio ward-room hatchway, and stepped
out on the starboard aide of tbe quurUir
deck. Ho was a trim and dapper little fel
low, barely five foot five in bis allocs;
slim, and yet with a certain wiry nous

told of strength. Ills clothes looked as
though they bad lust come from tba

and a kid glove clothed the band that

We were used to the neat clothes and
bright ornaments, for many of our offi
cers were noted examples of well
dressed manhood, but wo had not been
educated up to the stundard wherein kid
gloves and patent leather were blended
with salt water and tar, and our criti
cisms, if not loud, were many.
Hut "Dundy Jack" (fur tho name thus
Involuntarily given clung to him), if be
knew of these, gave thorn no attontlon,
and a dully acquaintance with thorn
loon maun us accustomed to the Innova
tion, and we quickly discovered that
our new lieutenant was a thorough mas

thrust upon us by tho opening of hostili
ties. We had been ordered South, and
were lying olf Fort Pickens, with the
Confederate flag in plain sight, as it

there were no signs of wurliko prepura

brought us no excitement.
The case was chunged, however, wheii
one morning we saw, hauled under the
shears und ulready partially armed, a
schooner whoso yacht-like build and
rakish spurs told of an adaptability for

that our ofllcors much desired, und an

Wo did not know the number of guns,
or how large a crew tho schooner cur
ried; but wo did know thut heavy and

for she was moored directly in their
range. Yet this was not considered dis
couraging, for one cun not expect such
enterprises to bo dovoid of danger. Wero
they so, it would tuko from them a great
part of the charm thut makes men suck
the excitement they now possess.
Of course the preparations for the ex
pedition wero curried on secretly, so
thut no Intimation of them should reach
tho enemy, und on the lilth of Septem

ship we pulled slowly anil with muffled
oars up to the shore of Santo Rosa
Island, and cautiously followed this,
keeping well under tho shadow of Fort
Pickens until we reached a point whoso

of "give way," made us bend steudily to

very much like the wash of low waves.
In a few moments we saw "Dandy
Jack" lean eagerly forward, und heard
tho words: "There she Is, give way, my
boys!" spoken In a low but clear tone.
And wo did give way, just as an exci
ted voice a short dlsluiico from us cried:
"Boat ahoy! What bout is thut?"
No word made reply, but our muscles
grew harder with un added strain, as
tho cry of, "Tho Yanks! the Yanks!
Jleat to quarters!" sounded through the
The next Instant our boat grated
alongside of tbe schooner, and we grap
pled a chain-plate. Then the flash of a
musket shone redly In the gloom, and
by tho sudden light we saw, standing
holdy out on the rail above us, the dap
per form of "Dandy duck," who hud
been the Hrst to clamber up the side of
the enemy. In a moment, cheered on
by his act Bnd voice, we bud reached the
dck of the schooner. Already Iho yard
beyond was loud with the turmoil of
men rushing to arms, and we soon found
that we could not get tbe schooner out,
to the lire-brands wo had brought were
lighted and flung Into the huld.
Waiting a few moments to see thut
these were doing thiair work, we re
treated to our boats and pulled away
Into the darkness, stopping to Bend a
few rounds of grape and canister among
the men we saw forming ranks beyond
the blazing schooner. Tbe work we had
set out to do was accomplished. The

Many Incredulous smilesgrected these

feeling confident that "Dandy .lack"
would not be found wanting. Wo cruised
ulong the Atluntic seaboard for some

OF A BOTTLE.
Kmploj-eil In the nlanufnatur.
Tho process begins with the gatherer.
His blowpipe is a tube of wrought iron.
Hvo or six feet long, and of lighter
weight than the plpo used in blowing
window glass. Ho dips tho end of his
pipe Into tho molten contents of the
boot, and brings out a muss of red-hot
plastic glass. If the bottles to be blown
uro small, ono gathering suffices, but.
for larger wures, two or even three
gatherings muy bo necessary to got tho
requisite supply of material on the end
of tho blowpipe. When the gathering
is done properly, this lump of red-hot
gluss is a perfect homogeneous muss,
Its subsequent fortunes rest with the
blower. He takes tho blowpipe from
the gatherer, and resting tho plastic
gluss uguinst a mnrverlng table of stone
or cast iron, bo gives tho pipe a few
adroit rotations, thus fashioning the
gluss Into un evon cylindrical shape.
Ily further rolling it ulong the etlgo of
the table be forms tho smaller prolongs
tlon of gluss which Is afterward to bo-
come tho neck of tho bottle. Lifting
the Btill red-hot glass from tho tublo,
ho blows through tho pipe, forming
small bubble of air in the interior of
tho mass of glass. This Is afterwurd
extended until it becomes tho Inward
ness of the bot tle.
The partly fashioned bit of glassware Is
now Introduced Into tho mold which ono
of the "shop" boys bus ulready opened to
receive it. r or convenience in working,
tlie mold is placed oil a somewhat lower
level than that on which tho blower
stamps. It is made of cast iron, and is
commonly formed in two pieces. One of
these is stationary, while tho other
miens outward, its motion being con
trolled by a footlever. When tho blower
places bis incomplete, bottlo, still at
tached to tho blowpipe, into tho mold,
he closes the mold with his foot, and
blows through tho plpo until the plastic
glass is everywhere forced against the
sides of the mold, and him impressed
upon it the form of its prison. Prof. V. II.

health of the future mothers of our land should be carefully guarded.
Our girls need the tenderest care as they are entering upon woman

neglect, that the seeds of distressing ailments are sown, which afflict
them in after years. As a regulator and promoter of functional action

reliable agent for building np the strength and system and establishing
the proper functions. " Favorite Prescription " is a legitimate medicine,
carefully compounded, by an experienced and skillful physician and
adapted to woman's delicate organization. It i pnrely vegetable in
its composition and perfectly harmless in its effects in any condition
of the system. For all those peculiar weaKnesses, "bearing -down"
sensations, weak back, displacements, as pr. psns, anteversion, retro
version and kindred ailments, it is specific. The only medicine for
woman's peculiar diseases, guaranteed to give satisfaction in every
case, or money refunded.
