Those who were disappointed at the

by a bogus astronomer, ill Louis5, for
the night of the 1,'lth, will receive conso
lation in the fact that, .according to a
statement nrade by Prof. Iliohard A. Proc
tor, one of the most eminent astronomers
now living, in a lecture in New Yoi kjlast
Thursday night, we are to have one bare
efi.Migh. On the night ofiNovember 27th,
the 1( ctuier said, wemay expect to see a
beautiful display-of meteors 'radiating
from a point near the star Gamma, in the
night fiNt of the constellation Androme

about 10 o'clock at night. It has been
ascertained that meteors follow in ilockh

From tae Batli (New York) Star.
' -Editor Strir : -In answer to the ques
tion's invariably asked by my friends
"How do you like the South 1" and "what
are the prospects of getting along there!11
I would like; to make the following
brief replies, through the Star :
My objectin going to North Carolina
was to satisfy myself by personal ; obser
vations, whether the favorable reports I
had received from the central section of
the State could be relied upon. It gives
me pleasure to ay that the advantages
are more numerous and greater than I
was led to suppose. A Northerner is at
once favorably impressed with the kind
ness aud sociability of the people, as well
as their eagerness to welcome men of en
ergy and enterprise to settle among tliem.
Infact, they seem heartily tired of j the
old state of afl'airs . and are extremely
anxious to have the "Old North State'
attaiu the pre-eminent '-'position which
its great diversity of products, eutitles it
to occupy. -
The lands in the central section will
produce in perfection everything of value
grown in the North, and iu addition will
growtobacco, cot to,:, pea-nuts, jute, and
a great variety of other valuable products
peculiar to the South. This great variety
of products is of immense importance to
the farmer, and gives him a great advan
tage over settlers iu tlie West, as their
efforts arc ui.ninly confined to tho produc
tion of corn and wheat, an industry in
which they find themselves -in serious
competition with other; formers in a dozen

A Small Sinner.
A JBoy of Three Yean Steals Three Horses
ia Rapid Succession.
The Pl-otland (Me.) Press tells Hie fol
lowing sjtory of youthful precocity :
Friday; morning, about 8 o'clock, a lit
tle boy, aged three years, named Sanborn,;
whnae parents resii.e on Newlieny street,
Portland, saw a team standing by 'the:
sidewall4. It was a nice light wagon, to
which a Vhite horse was attached. Into
this carriage the infant scrambled, gatheiv
eil up the re ins in his tiny hands, and
drove Off with the assurance and coolness
of a vetijran. Finding that the animal
did not proceed at a iace fast enough to
please hijni, he managed to draw the whip
fiom thuisocket aud laid on tho lash with
an energy that surprised ''Old Whitey."
The auiifial had gtwd blood in him, and
away he went at a three minute gait
causing other teams to give huu a wide
berth. The owner eauulit siht of his
equipage and started in pursuit, lie might
as well lf;ive tried to catch a will-o'-the-
wisp. Otner teams joined in tho pursuit
at 'the request of the anxioas roprietor
of the Stijjeii team, but the little real
ni.inagedj to evade them all. At last,
when, thej horse begau to a how signs of ex
haustion tfie child drove !ii,u into a sta

'The boy was in high 'feather with hisfrge number

which was drawn by u black horse; and

Going Down In the Deep.
Charles; Muller, the second mate of the
Champion, the Charleston steamer that was
sunk last) week off the Delaware Capes,
makes the following statement about the
disaster: j -
He said : "I have been on board the
Champion over ten years. 1 had charge of
the watch on Thursday night, which was
composed! of three men besides myself.
Nothing tjnusual occurred, and the lights
were set at the masthead and on both sides
of the vessel as usual. At 12 o'clock I was
relieved by the first mate and turned into
bed. " My state room was forward in the
mess ropni. About 3 o'clock in the morn
in 1 was I awakened bv the sound of two
bells striking. This was the signal of stop.
Then there was a pause of about half a min
ute and a frightful crash, which shook the
:,4Li""hts: were burning in our mess room,
and I pulled on my boots and ran on deck.
The captain came out of the pilot house
as I came pp and called tcsme, "Go aft and
clear away the boats." He than ran to the
cabin and jtold the passengers to come on
deck in a hurry. I could feel the ship sink
ing rapidbj. " I seized two axes and tan aft.
I gave one! of the axes to a sailor and order
ed him to tut away the lashings from the
port quarter boat, and L began to cut the
lashings from the star-board quarter boat
myself. While doing so Iaaw a large ship
right into ns on ..our star-board bow. Sev
eral men were on . her fore castle and the
Champion was backing away at full speed.
When the lashings-were cut I ordered the
men to switg the boata out.: AH the people
saved were jtben on deck, I think; but there
did not seem to ba much excitement and
gone Itkej a nimble Ilea, and slipped into
Judge Goddaid's carriage, standing at the
iMist otSce. But this time the crowd,
hardly any confusion. SThe bow of. bu?

broke over the deck of the Champion, and

. SAYIXO THE EAFT, j
The life rafd caught under the mainstay,
and the side I hang to was dragged under:
the water until th fraft stood upright. I
climbed up the raft as I was being draced
to the bottoai, and pushed against the main-i
stay with all the strength 1 had. Each sec
ond seemed aa jipur tns I struggled for' life
under the waves in tlie darkness. Just as
X was about to g vVup I gave a! tremendous
push, and the -raft H4 from, under the main-
stay, rose to the! surface. I was j us't ;able to
climb on it, when I sa"w the cook clinging
in to the other side, although he had been
utterly helpless under the watcr I then saw
the captain wifnmihg in the water, and

hen I dragged him on board
he was eoaapjetejy exhausted and could
fhen bth hauled the cook
on board. The! air was full of awful sounds.
Voicjes couhV Ui heard iu all directions
giiig for he!p. Some of
tlie voice weni those of women.
I was bo
aSccted that I tiremb'ed all over. We cut
the oars of the raft loose and pulled around
in search of tlje poor people who were pray
hpg for help. W picked up the chief engi
neer, first assistant engineer and a eailor
named Fred Mack man. They were holding
cm to pieces of ih'e wreck. We then found
at fireman named
after hatch, and
Kelly hanging on to the
took John Foster, the port-
cr, irom one pt: the lifeboats, which was
fipating bottom upwards. We could not
tiid any ihore; persons; although' we could
"hear them cryih'g out for help. The life
l)joat was righle'dj and bailed out, and the
cjiief engineerjtck charge of it wilh two of
tfte sailors. We continued to pull around,
but the life rait! ci rifted and we could make
na headway. Sometimes a. voice would be
heard close to; usj but the raft could not
reach tlie spot ihjtime. In a little wliile tlie
lifeboat -a me back, having picked up three
nen. One of them, a coal heaver, was un
conscious and; almost naked. He had been
saprised it bed.! The lifeboat took the raft
iij tow and we rowed toward the ship which
struck us.. We were met by the ship's mate
loat, and after getting on board we let the
rsfcjo a drift, ;0n the ship we were treat
ed 'kindly and all were furnished with plen-
v of food and clothing."
Catharine Cross, the stewardess, was
tVund relating! the story of her escape to a
jTarge number of: ladies in the cabin of the
ly'hg at the company's pier.
' I wtus in my birth," she said, "and asleep,
bat was awakened by the shock. I had my
clothes cn, T rushed up the companion way.
I-was no sooner upon the deck than I was
caught u; by the water and carried over
board. 1 was. unconscious at this time. I
don't remember what happened to me. It
was very cold.:. The water wasn't cold, but
the wind wm very cold when I Aas taken
oijt of the water. I was picked up by three
mea in a boat from the 6hip. I heard the
mtensay that I wai the third person picked
iij). I heard screams of women in tlie cabin
when I rushcii upon deck, and after I was
polled into the boat I could hear cries for
neip in tne water, i was uie only wcuian
"Besides myself, there were women on
Ward and one baby. They were all white.
tic baby belonged cither to Kate Thrackey
or1 to Rosa Barber, I don't know which.
These two women . were in the Steerage.
Miss-Marion Mikeil, and Mrs. II. Iluxtable
were :abin passengers. Mrs. Andrews and
her daughter were only seven days from
Europe when they came on board our steam
er. The reason I was not undressed was be
cause ffelt gloomy. At supper time, when
the Captain came down, Mrs. Andrews
"It's warm to night, Captain."
44 Yes. said the Captain, it's foggy."
"Then Mrs. Huxtable, who was an elder
ly lady said to me:
"I hope, stewardess, that no other vessel
will run into us."
"Oh, no,' I said, 'there's no danger of that;
Copt. Lockwaod is very particular.'
k I gave her this answer, but w hat she said
made me feel gloomy, so I didn't take olT
my clothes, but just lay back in my berth
and at last fell asleep. I didn't hear any
more, but suddenly 1 found myself awake,
and I knew that something was the matter.
I rushed out, and when I was going up the
companionway the water came clown and
washed me back. I got hold of the bannis
ter and pulled myself up. I didn't see any
other woman, nut 'I heard them all scream
inz in the cabin. When I got on deck the
O :. - O
water was there. I don't remember how
much, or how long I was in it, but I don't
think I stood still a minute. I think I went
right to a loat that eome men w ere cutting
loose. This was near the stem of the ves
sel, on the left hand side. If there had been
a little more tirae ihey would have got the
boat loose, and a good many might have
been saved in it, but they were too late. I
remember I went up to the boat and put
my hands on the edge of it to get in when
the water came and lifted me up and carried
me right over the boat and into the ocean.
I went down in the water; I don't know how
far.1 1 was unconscious. When I came up
I reached put with my hands and got a hold
of something. It was a settee, with a long
