FLOGGING IN THE NAVY. I do not bdieve I shall ever forget the first exhibition of this sort I attended on boardjjmv own ship; not that ihe spectacle was in any way more revolting than scores I have since witnessed, but because the si-ht was new to me. I remember it wanted fully twenty minutes of seven in the morning, when my servant aroused me. Why so early to daj ?" I inquired as I turned out. "A flaying match, you know, sir," said Jones. My heart gave an anxious* "thud" against my ribs, a if I myself were to form the ram for the sacrifice." I hurried through with my bath, and dressing myself us if for a holiday, in cocked hat, sword, and undress coat, I went on deck. We were at anchor in Simon's Bay. All the of the scene I remember as though it were but yesterday. The morning was cool andcleMr. the hills clad in lilac and green, seabirds floating high in air, and the waters of the bay reflecting the blue of the sky and the lofty mountain- sides, forming a picture almost dreamlike in its quietness and serenity. The men were standing ahout in groups, dressed in their whitest of pantaloons, bluest of smoeks and neatest of black silk neckerchiefs. By-and-bye the culprit was led alt by a (iie of marines, and I went below with him to make the preiitninary examination, in order to repoit whether or not he might be fit for the punish- ment. He was as good a specimen of the British marine as one could wish to look upon, hardy, bold, and wiry. Mis crime had been smu«?liug spirits on board. Needn't examine me, Doctor," said he; I ain't aleard of their f, ur dozen* they c m't hurt me, sir—leastways my back you know—my breast though ham m1" and he shook his head. rather sadly I thought, as he bent down his eyes. "What," said I, "have you' anything the matter with your chest?" ni Nay, Doctor, nay; its my feetiris they'll hurt. I've alitlle girl at ho.ne that loves me, and —Idesg you, sir, I won't look her in the face again no- how." I f-it his pulse. No lack of strength there, no nervousness; the aiterv had the firm beat of health, the tendons felt like rods of iron beneath the finger, and his biceps stood out hard and round as the mainstay of an old seventy-four. I pisied the brave fellow, and—very wrong of me it was. but I coutd net help it—filled on', and offered him large glaJs of rum. "Ah, sir," he said, with a wistful eye on the ruby liquid, den't tempt me, sir. can bear the bit o'flaying athout tte-at.; I wouldn't have ray messmates smelt Dutch courage on my breath, sir thankee all the same, Doctor." And he walked on deckaiHl surrendered himself. All,bands had already assembied, the men and boys on ore side, and the officers, in ceeked hats and swords on the other. A grating had been lashed against the bulwark, and another placed on deck beside it. The culprit's shouidersand back were bared, and a strong belt fastened around Lhe lower part of the loins for protection he was then firmly tied by the hands to the upper, and by the feet to the lower grating; a tittle basiu of cold water was placed at his feet.. and all was now prepared. The sentence was ready, and orders given to proceed with the punishment. The cat is a ter- rible instrument of torture; I would net use it on a bull unless >n self defence the shaft is about a foot aud a half long and covered with green or vei baize according to taste; the Miotgs are nine, about twenty-eight inches in length, of the thickness o' a goose-quill, and with two ktijsts tit d on oach. Mi n Se rije the first blow as like a shower of moiten lead. out thongs w th his five lingers before each blow, firmly and determinedly, was the first dozen delivered by the bo'swa^i's mate and as unflinchingly received, then, "One dozen, sir' pk :se, he reported, saluting the coinmauder, "Con- tinue the was the calm reply. A new man and a new cat. Another dozen reported; again t&e same reply. Three dozen. The flesh burning like steel, had changed from red to purple, and blue and white; and between the third and fourth dozen, the suffering wretch, pale enough now, and in all probability sick, begged a comrade to give him a mouthful of water. There was a tear in the eye of the hardy sailor who obeyed him, whis- pering as he did so—Keep up, Bill; it'll soon be over now." Five, six," the corporal slowly-counted—" seven, eight." It's the last dozen, and how acute must be the torture! "Nine, ten;" The blood comes new fast enough, and—yes, gentle reader, I will spare your feelings. The man was loose at last and put on the sick-list; he had borne his punishment withoutc. groan and without moving a rrvuscle. A large pet monkey sat crunching uuts in the rigging, and grinning all the time; I havs no dcubt he enjoyed the spectacle immensely, for he was only an ape. Tommy G wr.s a pretty,* fair- skinner), blue-eyed boy, some etixteei; -sun iters old' "Tie r. was .on-e.iOi ivelftss o+iiy cojuiinyn itti-t'he-acrvio« become enamoured of the sea, he had run away horn his home and joined thesetwice; and, poor little man! he found out when too late, that the stern realities Of a sailot's life did not at allitécord with the golden net 011s he had formed of it. Being fond of stowinf: himself away in corners with a book, instead of keeping his watch, Tommy very often got into disgrace, spent- rnueh of his time atthe mast-head and bad many unpleasant palmar recounters with the corporal's cane. One day, his watch being ofer. be bad retired to a corner with his little "ditty-teox." Nobody ever knewonHhaifthe beloved knicknacks and valued nothings he kept. in that wee box; it was, -in fact, his private-cabin, his sanctum sanctorum, to which he could retreat when anything vexed him:; a wrt of portable home, in which he could forget the toils of iiis wenry watch, the giddy mast-head, or even the corporal's cane. He had extracted, and was dreamily gazing on, the portrait of a very young iady, when the (Oi poral teame up and rudely seized it, and made a very rough and inelegant remark concerning the fair virgin. I "That is my sister." cried Tommie, with tears in his eye-. Your sister!" sneered the corporal; "she is &-—" and he added a word that cannot be named. There was. the spirit of young England,, however, in Tommie's breast; and the word had scarcely crossed 'the corporal's when those lip;, and his nose too were dyed in the blood the boy's fist had drawn. For thai blow Tommy was condemned to receive four dozen lashes. And the execution of the sentence was carried out with all pomp fwd show usual on such occasions. Arrayed in cocked hats, epaulettes, and swords, we all assembled to witness that helpless child in his agony. Ooe would have thought-that even the bo'swain's mate would have hesitated to disfigure skin so white and tender, or that the frightened and imploring glance Tomtuie cast upward on the first descending lash would have unnerved his arm. Did it? No, reader; pity there doubtless was among us, but mercy—none. Oh we were a brave band. And the poor boy writhed in his agony; his screams and cries were heartrending; and, God forgive us! we knew not till then he was an orphan, till we heard him beseech h's mother in heaven to look down on her son, to pity and support him. Ah! well, perhaps she did, for scarcely had the third dozen commenced when Tommie's cries were hushed, his head drooped on his shoulder like a dead bird's, and for a while his sufferings were at an end. I gladly took the opportunity to report further proceedings as dangerous, and he was taken away to his hammock, 1 will not shock the nerves and feelings of the readers by any further relation of the horrors of flogging, merely adding, that I consider corporal punishment, as applied to men, cowardly, cruel, aud debasing to human nature; and as applied to boys, brutal, and sometimes fiendish. There is only one question I wish to ask of every true- hearted English lady who may read these lines—be you sister, wife, or mother, could you in your heart have respected the commander who, with folded arms and grim smile replied to poor Tommie's Iraotic appeals for m rcy, "Continue the punishment?"—Medical life in the Naty, by W, Stables. 4 Lord Edward Howard, one of the Liberal can- I didates for Preston, has declared himself a. convert to the ballot. This change has been brought about • by his experience in Preston, aud what he ha beard." |
THE NEW l'Ail1.1AMKNT AND THE IRISH CHUllCH. The new Parliament will meet in soma respects under favourable circumstances. There is a spirit of content- prevailing, all the more so that the Liberals have a decided m jority in the House of Commons. With that kind of selr-sa'.isfaction which successful men are apt to indulge, the Liberals are jubilant over their triumph. How obtained? is not the kind of question about which they trouble themselves. The Hngiisb counties pos-ess the best average constituencies—electors whose position is above poverty, and so mixed and varied that they repre- sent the average iiiteilig, nee and industry of the country. Were the electors to be weighed and not counted, thti hahnee wonld be largely on the Conservative side. This not being the case the Liberals assume that they are to have their ov.-n way in the Commons. The Scotch Pres- byterians and English Disse nter-, aided by Irish Roman Catholic electors, have given Mr Gladstone a majority, and with his victory the Liberal difficulty really begins. The laws of primogeniture und enta l, the repeal of the ratepayiug clauses of the R- form Bill, are all questions ot importance, ami .they exhaust the programme of the Radicals, apart from the abolition of the Irish Church, and the English Church in its turn. The most ardent defender of Radicalism has never claimed for it any specialty for constructive legislation; and should tha working men insist upon giving their opinions legislative effect 011 labour, capital, and exchanges, they will havo no more decided opponents than the Radical capitalists. When Hir Gladstone has formed his Cabinet, his mora exuerne followers will demand prominent placcs; his more moderate suppot rs feel themselves slighted, in time to come disgusted. To support. Air Gladstone has been the shibboleth of his party but how and when, beyond the disestablishment of the Irish Church is un- decided. Even on the cardinal question, the disestab- lishment oi tho Irish Church, the whole bacile ht^ to be fought, and a compact minority in the House of Com- mons, backed by a large majority in the Peers, will constitute a barrier not easily ov rconv. This is net the kind of question en which popular clamour can be used lor the purpose of revolution"; the Peers will not, as in the case of the Reform Act of 183*2, present themselves from motives of patriotism, and the Crown will not readily volunteer the manufacture of a Gladstoi'.ian p.,erzigeto carry a constitutionally destructive measure. Public opinion requires instruction, and as Scotland has been the aident aliy of Air Gladstone, the Scotch Dukes and [.(! eat. laU(lowners had belter consider their position. 'I he Church as by law established is one of tiie active forces of Scottisa national opinion, :.he Free Kirk, separated from the Establishment on the question of patronage, is another, and the United Presbyterians have acted together at the last election, and giver to Air Gladstone au almost undivided supper" how this union has been brought about on the part of the Free Kii k, and the recorded judgment of its founder—the late Dr. Chalmers—the Duke of Argyll, Lor.; Paiimure, and Dr. Candlish, can explain. The tact and its con- sequences ure before the public. Many of the S. otell gentry are Episcopalians, and the. Scotch Episcopalians are muob nearer the Roman Catholic (Janre;1 tb the ordinary English Churchman; by their Ciahops the Scotch Episcopalians have intimated Ihat they are not opposed to the disestablishment of the Irish Church. The great landowners, in the face of these f.icts, may also remember tha: the press of Sotlarul !3 in the hands of the Liberals, and that it is a power which does something "lore than represent public opinion—it creates and directs. If-Conservatism hopes for a harvest in Scotland it must sow the seed. One thing is certain; while the Scotch representatives may aid in the disestablishment of the Irish Church, they will unhesitatingly oppose the endow- ment of itaraan Catholicism in any shape or form. i'H England, the Constitutional party must look to thq working men, and the experience of Lancashire is in- valuable. Nothing is more to be deprecated than religions rancour, except religious indifference and political cowardice. The resident Irishmen, led by the priests in their various localities, and represented by Mr Gladstone and Mr Bright in Parliament, must be met by the English working men in the,, same -Locaiities and their leaders in the House of Commons. It, is mainly a question of political organisation, and no good reason can be given wity the Liberals and Rotnsn OatholiC9 should monopo- lize mis essential of political success. Leeds is an eminently representative Yorkshire town, and its Conser- vative member owes nis election to organization and the support of the working men. There are not a few timid persons, excellent and amiable in private life, who fear the tumult and strife of a great conflict, and naturally counsel concession others 1 here are who have their own purposes to serve by a compromising policy but those who hope to serve i heir coumtry, now end in the future, must nerve themselves for the conflict. It is at hand, and will be fatal/to all who fear its consequences. The Irish Church is, within Ireland, the bulwark of Protestantism, as the Archbishop .-of'Ai ina -h proved in M* admirable iettfr toMr GJad- PJI-AF-.S'JUCKIUIDHAS been no reply, 1 tco, is an integral part of t ie English Caursh arid, asfauoh, ciaiuie na ional support. Those whet know what can be done by organizifion have no ri,<r!i £ to despair of the future of the Irish Church. The fiction ju.,t closed has not sent tt; the House of Commons a s.ngle assailant of commanding intellect; it has added only fo numbers, and those who may any day separate on details, and sucn details, too, embody principles.

DEA-SH OF THE NEW RAJAH OF SARAWAK —It was only about six months ago, or even less, that we an- nounced in these columns the death of Sir James Brooke the Rajah of Sarawak, and now it is our duty to record the death of bis nephew, Captain Johnson Brooke his successor in his Eastern Raj. He was the son cf a Somersetshire clergyman who married the sister of S r James Brooke, and while still a boy was adopted by the Rajah, and went out to Borneo to help him in the ad- ministration of his settlemeat. He was at one tin e tin officer in the Queen's service (we believe Captain in the 88th Foot), and at the time of his death he was only in his 46th year. He was known in Sarawak as the "Tuan Muda," and he published about two years ago a book descriptive of his Bornean experiences, entitled Ten Years in Sarawak. In the preface which he added to the book, Sir James Brooke bore testimony to the faet that since his own return to England the Raj of his nephew had been most successful; that hehadeontit.u d to represent his own authority and the honour of the British name in the Eastern Archipelago; and that in that far distant settlement he was looked up to as the uhief of the Sea Dyakg, with whose habits, customs, and feelin r a he was better acquainted than any other indivi- iual: Captain Johnson Brooke was twice married, but ias been twice left a widower. He is succeeded by the inly surviving son, the issue of his fi; st maniage with me of the Grants of KilgTaston, Perthshire.
