of 'thae:' revolution it was the second
town in the State foi" size, numlbering
at least five thousand inhabitants.
.The standard of resistance to British
tyranny was raised, and the fishermen
of Marblehead responded to the call
with a 'stern enthusiasm. When a

eluded to postpone !their purpose bof
.of'exeCution. They could be used to

present, and by-and-by they might be.
rried by court-martial, .. ... |" i
So Taft and his two' ;co0mrades were
released from the)cialafcse and, as-
signed to duty,:.t~hough "strictly watch+-
ed for some weeks. This surveillance
however, gradually .wore 0ff-in, Mvew
of the apparent: sibrni~ssionv and: good
behavior of the men. ..

largely supplied with sailors, through

who seized and carried: o.ff.men by'
armed force--a'Species' of kidnapping
tacitly countenanced by the govern-
:ment,. .;Natura1iy, .therefored, .there'
"were 'many sour .and discon~te.nted:
.spirits in the navy. Abner Taft was
not long in 'discovering that theree
'were many mutinous "and disaffected:
men on board." > Cautiously he sound-
ed them, and at last had fifteen men.,
whom he believed he could .trust,
pledged to stand by him. 'The'Tar.
tar,. since the taking command by
Captain Scott, .had. become generally-
known :as -:"Hell -Afloat,". and the-
conspi rat orsi seemed -to .. feel. that,. i n
:case of failure execution- was but. little


and and _amazementw~aited for ori
ders from their superiors.
They-:had sot long: to wait. Captain-
Scott, though a tyrant-lacked neither
courage" nor ener:gy; ?Wifh. a. torrent
+of fierce imprecations,, he..ordered .his
men to cut their-way out to tie decks.
7 While: the axes were plied furiously,
a stern voice above was heard-, ri-ng
ing out !ike a trumpet of doom:;..
"'Keelp don: below":fur you~r. 'tves !
.There be six cannon-mouths guarding
,the hatches," said Abner Taft.
,_l."F cut .evety,.bit. of flesh, off ,your
bones, .you.. devilss" ... shouted the
Englishc-ia'ptiiln,' foaiming at' the.
mouth with rage. Again, to his im-
prisioned men "Cut, cut, for"you"
lives !" .. -L. ^' : '" ',
The axes flew in th' ij:hasim- of. the
English, and soon they.-'had? chopped
the: hatches in'"fragmednts.'*'*'As thiey
thronged up, t-he carronades were dis-
charged at-close range, and !a~n a~fui

In one of these. Capt~ai n 'Sctt +aid
his officers succeeded in es~atping from
the durancee-f the::cabin,: and' stufig
into a reckless-fury, charged with the.
sword and pistol "on:;the fierce band
that held the decks... :-
Abner, Taft .met his chief. persecutor
cutlass" in .hand, and ia 'short,..sharp
combat was ended by a terrible stroke,
which beat down captain Sc0ftsguiard
ahd clove his" head to the very jaw.
Those bloody "st'ipesi were" at last
avenged The other officers' shared
a like fate as they fought with: a diog-
ged.c~ourage that refused quarter. B~ut
,why prolong the bloody and *mon0.t0-
nous record, and describe the :fruitless
.efforts of the English c rew to recoverr
the advantage ? .
Suffice it that destiny, smiiled,"as
she so often'does on deeds 0f appa-
rentty hopeless daring, on'the'"ex-
ploits-of the Marblehead hero anid his
followers The winds "were-fair: and

things conspired to the hoped-for end.

;"The":following process is by S. W.
Moore & Weatherby, of England :
:The Wood to be prepared is first
kilii-dried, whqich process deprives it
of all moisture/And much of its yoia+
t-iie turpenti~ne' and other inflammable
matter ; it' isithen put into suitable
cylinders,: in 'whticih'iilfe and, water,
*with sulphiiroos acid +gas,, are'i forced
finto'the pores of th~e Wood uijtfer con.
siderable pressure, the sulphw~ous acid
being a by-product from the wasting
bf pyrites. .The, wood is removed and
dried, and is thlen:i eady for use.
--Wheiastdpji-ous acid is passed into
Jime under"prssure, a sulphate of
'lipie :iir, formed 'which is soluble in
"W^t'er.apable of crystalizing as "a
bisulphite, which is readily oxidizable
and .convertible into0 sulphate of lime
or gYPsUm :. : ' .. ** *' *'*' i
...As this is an exceedingly ihsoluibte
'salt, its is. not eas~il-removied,:therej+

':The advantages presented 'by: this

That Trip, -
In our last issue we promised to. give:
our readers an accouptof what is being.-
done on the line' o'fthe A. G. &W. I. T.
no's. Railroad, from which we hope to
'drawV a lesson of encouragemen't to those
of our citizens whlioareinter'ested in the
construction of.the Silver-Spring, Ocala
and Gull Railroad.; .- :
The great object of the A. G.,& W. I.
T. Co's Railroad,-,as we ,said before,
was to. connect'the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans by means of a ship canal across
the -narrow isthlimus of Tehuantepec.
When being coristru.ncted it placed no
reliance on local: freights. '-It looked
forward to bigger things. It aspired to
be nothing ore. or less than. the great
commercial aftery of the wiold. Fer-
nandina was but a'little-m-oro than a
speck on the-sea-shore-and Cedar Keys
was. unnamed. .'The ,large extent of
country.between the two places was, for
the most p.artx extremely poor and un-
inviting to the farmer. Tihe settlers

SAnother Disturbance.


Our town was again thrown into a
high state of excitement last Tuesday
night by the .ringing, report of a pistol
and the announcemnent.that Burrell Daw-:
kinsourTownMarshal, had been'killed.
The excitement of last week had not yet
subsided and this intelligence was like
the throwing of lighted torch- 'into a
powder magazine, anid for several hours,
our public, square, was theJscene of a
maddeped.mob, Armed with all sorts of
weapons, who filled the air with loud
imprecations and ..threats of revenge.
The deed had been committed by-a white
man and the infuriated blacks stopped
to-ask no0questions.'and looked upon it
as the commencement of a war of races,
and had it not been for the remarkable
:prudence .exhibited on 'the' part of the
whites, ,and a few.ofthe more mboderate
colored men, a-dlreiadful riot would
have ocbbcurred. While the truth i's, the
whites knew nothing about the :occur-
r'ence, were unacquainted .with the man
who committed the offence, and. were
the first to. pursue and overtake him,
and, furthermore, they esteem Daw-
kins as highly as the blacks and would
deplore-his loss equally as much. '
The cause of the disturbance was a
worthless fellow- from Hernando county,
named Powell.. He came to Ocala to
get some medicine for his sick father,
got ini liquor and created a disturbance
at the Ocala House. Seeing that he was
noisy and in liquor Mr. Harris refused
him admittafice and sent ifor -the Mar-
shal to have him- arrested. The .man
made threats against Mr. H. and it ,was
afterwards discovered that he was'dodg-
ing behind a tree- with a loaded pistol
with the evident design to shoot him as
soon as ai- opportunity- offered. Mar-
shal Dawkins came np in the meantime,
accompanied by Samr Miller, another
colored'-man, and arrested him. Powell
offered Ino-resistiiic.,p but ias they were
on their way to theJais:l he drew a single
barrel pistol, which he' had secreted
about his person, phucedlitnear the Mar-
shal's head- and fired. .The ball pene-
tratQd, the IpWer-oatW- fracwtred the. bPne
and is supposed to have lodged some-
where in his neck. Powell attempted

Floridl-t has been very justly styled the

upon tlhe glr'at eniminence attained by
the former country in the science of

have contributed in no small degree to
its high distinction in the cultivation of
thlie noble art of music.

restore his health, and a short time ago
his mother received a letter--from him
stating that he- would soon start for New

'' (': -A Squash in Harness.
'Some accounts of the lifting power
of a vegetable in its growth, as de-
-.teriuined from week to week by put-
-tisg a peculiar test upon a squash,
have been pubished from time to time,
but the whole progress of the experi-
-m-ent was detailed by President Clark,
at a late meeting of the Massachusetts
-'"Ste Board -of Agricrttlure, in-a lec-
ttiit*,e 'Plant Growth." We. take
7-th'e- account from the report in the
Newv England Fartner :
It had been known for a long time
bhax plant exertedi considerable force
during their growth. Beans, acorns
'and- other seeds lift an amount of
weight, as they rise up'from'ihe soil
In the early stages of tlhitr growth.
Mushrooms have been known to lift
".flag istones::weighingr ;eighty, pounds
from their bed in garden walks, and
shade-trees :in -our streets frequently
lift the pavements, and even crowd in
Basement walls under our houses, with
i their roots. The force measured in a
black :birch was equal to' raising a
columnmn of water eighty-six feet, while
Sthe sap was in motion. The idea was
conceived at' the Masachusetts Agri-
cultural College. of measuring .the
force of a growing plant, aind a'sqash
was selected:as a subject for such an
experiment. It seemed to be the
most available of anything we could
Story. So, last spring, a bed of rich
compost was prepared and placed in
one of the glass houses at the College,
wheie bobservatibnfi could be made
night and day through the summer,
add during all weather. The soil was
placed in a large, tight box or tank,
"' In which the roots: were made to stay,
and during some of the stages of the
squash's growth it was watched, and
hourly observations made and record-
ed, for a whble week at a time.- I
l. A,5Iqpases:a~jenadeup of fibrous tis-
sues; the outside fibres run length-
wise, then' aiahother "'set, like bands,
'!ertstihese, holding the squashes to-
-getheir the other way,. and then, ion
the inside, is another -set" runinilig'
lengthwise,"' to -whih the seeds are
attached.7 (The. unha'rnessed- squash
.. pas now exhibited, showing unmis-
... taxable signs of having been driven
''i a-'"bainess much too small for it.)
/ .. -,s'tron~g box had been prepared to
b. '.' .ie t.. with boards set edgewise in
ri bottbrmr, on which the' squash was
T','lcdgib'v yn-its easde, but un-
._like the baby it was told to lie there
during its entire growth to the period
of mature squash-hood. Iron)4 bolts
.' and straps easily secured the'cradle,
but.something must be done to keep
... -" the growth from rising, or if itdid
-rse, to indicate the power exerted.
An iron grate or harness, made open
to admitlight and air, asthe squash_
,-.; would rot in a tight closed box, was
'. formed in shape similar to the saddle
--of a cart harness. This was placed
er" {1e "s:itsh and weights placed
upon it, fis, /h one~,, hen, as it
: was lifted by flfdgrevtH tH6fe heapl,
a 1,xviefp aihrtdit otk-i*"5 Ibs,
then 5o,,RtWty*^e zoo, and atter
that 2oo at a time. ""
It soon b'ecamie'"difficult to find


weights orroomi for'them. The sad-
die got full. Then an inch bar of
steel was. arranged on the principle
of steelyards; one end being fastened
down to the cradle bed of the squash,
a-*.ntd--a4-one- foot hroin the-end, or just
" tr.&hre.midle.of tn( squasll, a bear
I ig.Wa-W'ks dii'ALd beyond this"bear-
4 ,; eightss were hung, as weights
'"FE "wung :'-tt-a wghing bar.
v"eiglh p.iWeiled. &d- till the bar
,broke. ThCe-.a cbesnut- Limber 5x6
inches, good ad "tspound, was put in
place of the broken bar, and loaded
i thlbbgs.ofsand and anvils till it held
six of the latter, and as many of the
former as there was room for. Still
the squash grew, and as it grew, it
raised, tbe..-an and anvils one after
anotcr- ag.they were piled on, until
one ,uarn'ing the timber was found
broken under its weight, but the
S..sqgash all. light-and increasing in size
`hourly. A heavy, wide chrt-tir-e was
:bol-&lo, to.4.-he, next lever, used for
" hstifl'hg' i',".'and.' this one lasted till
o t harness cruhed ii the shell of the
sTneh, in one or two of its bearings.


Thus ended the experiment of testing
the vital force of a growing squash,
At this time it had tipped the beam
under the weight of two tons and 120
pounds, and had carried on its back,
but without lifting it, a load of 500-
pounds for ten- days.. .
Many harness galls were made dur-
ing the trial, but in every instance
the squash healed,itself in a short timer
and came out healthy at,,last with
perfectly formed plump seeds and a
cavity in each half, whe'n:'cut-as it
was before, the audience-large'
enough for .a large sized hen's nest,.
The meat or rind of of the squash was
about three inches. in thickness, and
by estimation contained sixty-four
thousand millions of cells, each of
which had been 'formed from sap pre-
pared by the leaves of the vine, and
carried through the vine and stem of
the squash itself, with instructions to
appropriate as best it could under the
circumstances. The force by the vital
power of. the vine was sufficieJnt _t0
raise a column of water forty-eight feet
'highin forty-eight hours, at the end
of which time it burst.
And now what is the use of all this?
Simply this:, We'have asked Nature
a simple question, and she has given
us a correct answer. There has been
much' dispute about, the, .question
whether trees grew except_ at the ex-
tremities, and- important law cases
have grown out of it- Parties on
both sides were sure they were right,
butthe 'weight of evidence was nearly
all against the theory of elongation
except at the ends. of the new, wood.-
The story of the'flbert tree growing
up throughtheceUtre ofa mill-stone,
and finally, by its growth, suspending
the stone several inches in the air,
was not generally -credited. Our ii-
vestigations prove that similar effects
"are produced every year, by every
tree which 'grows, and that this rising
of the tree is necessary to its own
preservation.: Under the influence of
winds which sway our trees to and
fro, during ,.their, growth,, the roots
--niust 'l41oosinid-in tfiesoil and' par-
tially prevented from holding the tree
securely in its. place. .' -
Now for the remedy. Each year,
as the tree grows, it lays on a ring of
new wood entirely aroufind every-part,
nriot only of'the top,'but 'of the roots
also. It: cannot build on the under
side of these roots unless it lifts the
tree from -its bed, or crowds the soil
away' from underneath, to make room
for the new cells it is bound to carry
there.- 'Finding it' easger- to lift the
tree than to sink the world, thle tree
is accordingly 'raised 'each' year, by
just- so much as the thickness of the
new wood, which is laid upon the
under side of the roots. And now the
beauty of the arrangement is seen,
when we discover that this added
yearly growth is just sufficient to take
up the slack in the roots caused by the
rocking of the tree during storms and
winds. The tree. is thus securely
tightened and anchored in the soil
every year anew.

Mark Twain on Spelling.


happens to strike. There are 114,-
oo words in the unabridged diction-
ary. I know a lady who can spell
only 18o of them right. She steers
clear of all the rest. She can't, learn
any more. So her letters alway&-6n-
sist of those constantly recurring! 180
words. Now and then, when she
finds herself obliged to write upon a
subject which necessitates the use -of
some other words, she-well, she
don't write on that subject. I have a
relative in New York who as almost .
sublimely gifted. She can't spell any
word right. There is a game called
Verbarium. A dozen people are each,
provided with a sheet of paper., across
the top of which is written a long
word -like kaleidoscopical, or some-
thing like that, and the game is tosee
who can make up the most words out
of that in three minutes, -always be-
ginning with initial letter of the word.
Opon one occasion the word chosen
was cofferdam. When time was call-
ed everybody had built from five to
twenty words except this young lady.
She only had one word-calf. We
all studied a moment aand then said,
"why, there is no I in cofferdam !"
Then we examined her paper. To the
eternal honor of that uninspired, un-
colcii0ous, sumblimely independent
soul be it, said, she had spelled the
word cafff!' If anybody here can
spell calf any more-sensibly than that,
let him step.to the front and take his
milk. The insurrection will now
begin. ...
