' Talcautano, Cbili, May 1,
I ' loft Montevideo and Uruguayan
territory about four days ago, by a route
that is not much traveled; winch is not
to be much wondered at as the facilities
are none the best for comfort, rest, or
refreshment. On the morning of the 27th
of last month (April), I, with two na
tives, went outside the harbor, in a small
loop i of tea tens, for a few. hours'
cruise. -..
The day was quite calm and pleasant,
and we were emboJdeued to keep our
little craft standing out to sea at
least ten miles intervened between us and
the shore. Toward noon the breeze
freshened somewhat and Donna Maria

in & charming manner. . We were com
pletely rapt iu our enjoyment and forgot
to look out lor danger in tact we antic
ipated none when suddenly we were
aroused by a loud noise, something be

exactly like the escape of a heavy volume
of steam under hijrti pressure. . There

I just bad time to see this effect of the
catastrophe when I was again caught up
and shot with amazing velocity by : the
force of the column oi rising water. It
seemed to me that I must have been

day passed and night came on, and the
full moon rolled clorioulv up into the
heavens, bringing back to my mind the
recollection of a voyage I made on the
Pacific ( Ocean twenty years ago, in the
whaling ship Mattakeeselt, when during
the enchanting nights, we were be
calmed in the tropics, we used to assem
ble on the main deck over a hundred of
us and sing "Roll on, Silver Moon."
It was like a lovely dream lkigerinjg ia
tb.e memory.
On the afternoon the day following I
descried a singular object swiftly ap
proaching from the west. I made for it
and succeeded in grasping hold of what
proved to be the buauches of a tree. I
clung to it, scarcely knowing why, and
suddenly found myself descending. I
was concious that my progress laterally
Was stopped, and that I was descending
the branches of a tall tree, and judge of
my surprise when I found myself precip
itated to the ground in the midst of a
dense nina trrriwinir nn iKa itnmmit
of a high i mountain. My situation was
at once apparent. I had been carried up
by the waterspout into a deuse cloud,
which, impelled by a strong easterly
wind, bore me swiftly across the .conti
nent, and here I was on one of the peaks
of the Andes, having made a distance of
nearly one thousand miles, as the crow
flies, in twenty-seven hours, as near as I
could judge, which I think you will say
was tolerably gcod traveling. I was
chilled through and fatigued, so that rest
and warmth were the first demands of my
Having no matches or tinder-box I
was obliged to produce fire by the ab
original method of friction. So to this I
applied myself, and after rubbing two
dry sticks together assiduously for more
than an hour, I was at length gladdened
by a .successful 1 result fiist smoke and
then a flame. I at once pushed a little
pile of leaves and twigs under the side
of the trunk of an immense tree that lay
prone on the ground, and in a few mo
ments more I was quickly smoking my
ipo by the side of a blazing fire. Not
ing, however, for in a short . time my
log, to my consternation, began to crawl
slowly away, and utter angry noises.
"Would you believe it, instead of a big
pine log, as I supposed, it was an enor

might be necessary to pay his expenses,

One dull day in August, just after
noon, a balloon- rose in the air at tho foot
of Cloet Hills, on the western tdgo of
the central plain of Lplaud.T It was
inflated with the lightest of gasses which
chemical skill could produce, and it
rose with amazing velocity. A mile "up

than a thousand feet thick. '; Eiuer"insr
from this, the sun shone brightly on the
air ship j the sky overhead was of the
clearest and depest blue, and below lay
cloud-land an immeasurable ; cl ud
whoso surface looked as solid as that of
the earth not wholly lost to view. Lofty
mountains and deep, dark ravines, ap

cloud-mountaius next the sun, glittering
like snow, but casting shadows as if they
were solid rock. Lp rose tho balloon
with tremendous velocity. Four miles
above the earth a pigeon was let loose ; it
dropped down through the air as if it had
been a stone. The air was too thin to
enable it to fly. It was as if a bark laden
to the deck were to pass from the heavy
waters of the sea iuto an inland unsalioe
Llake; the bark would sink at once into
tho thinner water. Up, up, still higher!
What a silence profound 1 The hights of
tbo sky were as still as tho deepest depths
of the ocean, where, as was faund during
the search for the lost Atlantic cablo, the
fine mud that lies unstirred from year to
year as the dust which imperceptibly

house. No Sound, no life- only the
bright sunshine falling through a sky
which it could not warm.

Ono of the generals of the 'Lost
Cause" says, at tha time of the attack
upon Fort Pillow, the Confederates had
converted a Mississippi boat into a cot
tonclad, the mate of which was a big,
double fitted sample ot a river bully,
"full of strange oaths," aud enforcing
his orders by knocking men about the
head, and said: -."
Just before we came into the fight he
came swaggering up to me and said :
"Well, General, I suppose when one

"Yes, Jim," said I, "when . the fight

home and attend to his business."
"That ain't me," Jim eaid,smiting his
left palm with his fist like a sledge ham
mer, '-for if ever I ketch a Yank south of
Cairo, I'm going to smash bins."
A ten inch shell that came whistling
over the boat interrupted any further
remarks just then, and shortly after we
were putting away at the Federal boat in
about as hot a fire as I ever want to see.
I am sure that there were one hundred
guns opened upon us, and we got one
broadside so near that the flash of their
guns 6et our cotton bales on fire. Our
people fought well the other sido were
too strong for U3, and we. had to drop
down the river. . During the action,
while cannons were roaring, boats sink

around and the air filled with flame and
smoke, I quite lost - sight of Jim ; and
after we had dropped down tho river, out
of the fire end all hands repairing daroa-.

the A n 1 1 eke Jans heirs had called upon
him for information which he wa sup
posed to possess in reference to the claim,
he turned his whole attention to the mat

became convinced that the papers he held
was of the greatest value to the Trinity
Church corporation, and accordingly
about five years since, he made a p.-opo

8100,000, which was refused. Mr. Cald
