My BcoforiUR friends, did you eVer know Cuutoin Kurkhorii, who command- ed thu KLI]) 8iiitrum of Boston, on aeveral voyages around thu Cape of Good Hone ? You didn't - Well, many i>ooi>Ib did, and they knew him for a sterling ship- master and a worthy man ; houust, trust- worthy, and kind to IIIH fellow-men. On his first voyage in tho Niutram, ho was favored with as fine a crew t o handle the i^hij} an ever cracked a biscuit or handled a uiirliuBpike. Tbo men were } >roupt, obediout, active, uud ever ready or an emcrgeney ; always i n good si>irits y, m part, have been o»in^ j ^^j;^^ ^^ ^^ ^^^ ^^ ^^^ .^^^ ^^^^ a habit of using it, to tho great- aiiuuy- auoe of the sailors and thu dwgust of tlie officers, tJiat if he wi>ihfHl to upeuk \o a man a couple of fathoms off, he would put tlie trumpet to his month and bawl, treatment they received from yoti during the voyage, and beg you to accept the trifling gift which I now bold in ray Imnd, as a pledge of our resjiect and gra- titnda. It is our wish tlint i t may ser\'o you long and well, and be of signal use when giving orders from the quarter dedf. We, your old crew, have all shipped for a voyage to Ilio Janeiro i n the ship Pyrnmus, wliich sails tho day after to-morrow, and have called to ex- press our feelings and bid you farewell. \ Captain Karkhoru it is oitr sincere T*-iah that you may meet witli oceans of gooti luck during the renuiiuder of your voyage througli life; never lose your redconing, be put on short allowance, oapsiced, swamped or embayed in a hnr- irioane ou a leo shore. May you always steer clear of calms, logs, tyiihonns and Uiunder nqiioUs, enjoying steady lircczes, a doar sky, and plen^ of sea room, until Tou reach that port to which we are all Dound, and brought safely to anchor, there t o remain until the chief boatawain Qabriel, diall blow a summons from hin trumpet that ahall break your moorings and send yon away wing and wing t o the mansions of the blessod.\ The boatswain, baring waded success- fully through his speech, miide a bow, looking oarnestlr at the captain and thrust the Si>ea]dng Tnimjwl toward him. Captain Korkhom was a modest man, and although never at the Ions on the quartenlcck. he was shy and reserved iu his intercourse with the world. He was completely \ t^en aback\ by tho buttt- swain's harangue. He bluHhod—he stammered I Ho took the Bi>eakiug Trumpet in hand, and attempted for the first time in his life to make a n oratoiical display—but in vain. All he could say was—\My good fellows, I am smpriscd —this is most uuexjiected—lam etemnlly obUgod to you—I—I am—\ The boatswain, seeing tho Captain \in irons,\ which he oould not get out of, and himself and oomjionious having well I>erformed their duty, hui>pily and con- siderately concluded that the bcRt thing to be done was to close the ceremony witu a \round turn and two half-bitches.\ He made a sign to his shipmates, and one and all gave three rousing cheers, t o the great astonishment of Messrs. Onie- bach & Qusto, and the group of idlers which hud colleutcd, and murcued rapidly awoy! Captain Karkhom was proud of his trumpet He showed it to admiring friends, aud declared he woidd not part with it for its weight in gold; that it should be his eomjtauion on every future voyage, and strengthen his ^'oic-u when putting the ship about, or hailing tlie men aloft i u a gale of wind.

One pleasant day on the Lomewaid It is not often. I am sorrv tu say, tLat a | hound passage, when approachmg the sliip pt-j-forms uu Ea-*tlndia voyago with **%« «' **»« ^^ Stream, to the «mth- ' ward of Hatteras, about five o'clock iu like rcHulls. Whfu tho ship arrived iu liostou after a sucoussful voyiig& and the suilors were juud oil, they put their loose heads to- gether uud hrld a oouuuliutiou, over whi(^h tho boutswuiu presidtMl, iu rtigard the afternoon, a cry was J'aised that a grampus had come up to blow ou the loe quarter. This caused quite a commotion, as is always the CUM; at sea when a fish makes his ap]>eiirauce, a stiaiige sail Baahau hud been let loose. These sounds, which Bometimcs seemed to be ahead, sometimes astcni, some- times on the bow, and sometimes on the qiuuter, were inexplioablc. Tliey could not be accounted for on any rational or phitosophicil j)rincipleB, autl spread ter- ror among the crew, who ascribed them to tlie presence of disembodied spirits, making ctlurts to give warning of an im- pending disxstc]'. When daylight Hp]>eared the discussion relating to the cause of these alarming sounds was inti>mipted by Jo. Halkins, wlio sung out from tho fore-yard that a grampus was ]>rowliug about on tlie weather bow, not a cable's length from the sh{]>. The attention of all hands was now tuniwl tow'anl tlie big fisli, which was acting strangely, i)Iaying various antics, as if crazy or practicing maritime gym- nastier for a waiter, and every now and then amusing himself and frightening honest peo])le liy giving vent to those diabolicul phtinta nnd wails and yella like an nlligutor aflticted with the quinsy taking IcsKons iu church music. Ctept Karkhom for tlie moment forgot his Biieakiiig Trumpet \ril bB\e Uiut fellow now,\ said he \ 'tis the same mscul that was swimming around us hist night. He hiis met with trouble, aud complains of hard treat- ment, and wants uie world to know it Hand aloug the Imipouu.\ As if wining to gratify tho Captain's wibhes, tlie grampus \ put about\ and steered straight toward the ship. As he drew near, Jo. Halkins shouted along, from hin post on tho forcyard : \ I'll be bunged if that fish has not got a big gold fish iu his moutli.\ The gnimpus oame slowly along, swim- miuK ou the top of the Muter, and cn- deuUy exhnustt^l. Indeed, he could liordly keep puce \iii\\ the ship, which was going a t the rate of only four or five kno^. Suddenly lie raided his lioad, and ciisting an imploring look toward the ship, cloctritied all hands by a hideous yell, howl, or snort, which hurst abrupt- ly ou tlieir ears, louder and quite as musical uH the biaying, in choras, of a troop of doiikeyw, and then died away Uke tlio rumbling of distant thnnder 1 Cajitain Karkliurn was startled at the unearthly sound, but soon recovered his prttsence of mind, and sjir^ngiug to the deck from the gunwale, on wliich he was seated, he chtp|)ed bis hands as a new idea entered liis head. \May I be sunk thirty fathoms in the big pond,\ he shouted, \if that villain- ous grampus had not stolen my Speaking Tramjict, and confound hit impudence, he IK note hnilint/ tiie nhip teith iil\ The cajitaiu then moved by just indig- nation as well as b y a wish to capture a big fish, right manfully graHi>ou the Imrpoou, and tlie uext miuute it was dei'ply buried between tho shoulders of the unLa]i]>y fish ! After a si-vere strugf^le the grampus was liauled o n Iwjiu'd and on investigation it was dt'iiiousli-utiMl, as clearly us any case in Vowditi'h's Narigat-or, that when Jo. Halkins knockml the Speaking TrumiM't overboard, the hungry fish ; tiduug it for a choice morsul of food, had sttised it while i t was sinking, and, at- tempting to )>olt it, the noszle, or mouth- piece, bad stuck iu his throat, and could not bo got up or down, aud in his groat agony the iUli had utteretl or spout4»d through that higlUy prizeil instrument the hooTHe uud horrid screams and yells which hud so terribly uflHghted the erea' on board the good ship Siutram ! Frankrort War liorlcs. The Pall Mall Gazette savs: \We are indebted to Sir A. Atalet tor the infor- mation iu regard to the proceedings of the Prussian Generals during tlie oc- cupation of Frankfort: ' Vogel von Ffukenstcin took Frankfort Juir 10, 1600. He imposed the coutiibution of 7.000,000 florins on tlie folloit-ing ilay. It was not the Burgomaster Fcllner whom his harshness fnghtcued to death, but Councillor Fischer, editor of tlic Jounial de Franl/orf. On the 20tli, the General was replaced by Oeneml von Alanteufl'el. and it was by him that the contribution of 25,000,000 florins was imposeil on Frankfort besides the snm exacted by General von Fnlkensten, and iu ciimiuation of \iea\y vcquinitious of pillage and bombnidmcut Muuteuflel, again was temporarily rejilaced on the '2itl of J uly by General von Hoder, and it was in consequence of this officer's requiring the borgomostor.

But bucauso lie did not fol- low up' certain advantages gained over the Bavarians after Longeusulza, were two email actions at IJcrmbsch, and Zella were represented at Berlin as checks.

After a lengthy but somewhat spicy discussion, it was rt^olvod, uem. li/u., that a Imidsome Sjieaking Trumpet should be prot^ured uud i>rBheuted to the C3aptain as a murk of respect from the ship's company.

Curious Escapes frou Death In Battle. A coiTospoudent of a Boston paper writes from Metz: There werii n o en J of curious escapes from the murderous fires of the ^Ist August and the 7th Septem- ber. A French euptoin f juud himself suddenly surrountled Iiy an himdi-ed Prussians, and \s'as surrendering when their cajitiiiu shot him, and ho fell from his horse. Indignant ut such cowardly conduct he rose and tried to fight, but the suldiei-s marched over him, and when liis men came up ofter repuLiiug the enemy, he was supposed to Itedeud. But he rose, shook himself, and inarched ofl'. The Prussian cu]>tuiu's bull liad struck mxm his d»coratiou, flattened, and the Frenchman hved to ctqiture the man wlio attempted to kill him.

SAVIMO A Lii^—The Royal Humane Society of Enulaud has jus't presented its silver mitlollion, with siiitaole testi- monial recording the sen'ioes rendered, to a mias Scott, for saving the hfe of a young lady iiamixl Tredenuick, who was in danger of drowning at Bandoran.
