TWO YEARS AFLOAT.
Captain Phelps Tells How He Sailed
the Brunhilde Round the World.
From the New York Herald.
Early in the year of grace 1885 half a dozen
Yale gradaate3 put their heads together and
consulted how they could perfect their edu
cation in the pleasantest possible manner bo
fore beginning in earnest the sorious busi
ness of life. After much confab John J.
Phelps proposed that they should take a trip
round the world, and not by means of rail
roads or steamers, or oven a steam yacht,
but, as tho ancient mariners used u> go, in an
honest, manageable, first-class sailing yacht.
This proposal being unanimously accepted,
Mr. Plielps had a yacht built and invited
his friends to accompany him on his trip.
go it came to pass that tho yacht Brun
hilde was launched on April 29, ISBS, and
left this city on June 14 of tho same year,
having on board her captain and owner,
John J. Phelps, his traveling companions
and a competent crew. Yesterday morn
ing tho Brunhilde anchored off Bay Ridge,
after a voyage .which had lasted more than
two years and which was memorable in
A TRIP ROUND THE WORLD.
Capt. John J. Phelps, a russet bearded,
plain spoken, very affable gentleman, was
seen by a reporter yesterday soon after the
yacht arrived. His father, William Walter
Phelps, had just greeted him, and several
friends were congratulating him on his
successful voyage. When tlie reporter in
troduced himself he courteously left his
friends at onco and plunged into a narra
tive of what ho had seen and done during
“Five of my friends left New York with
me," he began, “and their names are A. E.
Symington, Kier Mitchell, H. H. Strong,
Charles Hulsey and T. R. Hillard. Wo
went first to the races at New London,
Conu., and then sailed for Cowes, in Eng
land, where we attended the regatta.
Tbenae " r e sailed by Boulogne to Cherbourg,
and there Mr. Halsey left us. Returning to
Cowes wo hired two officers and made for
the Mediterranean. * In the Bay of Biscaya
bad gale struck us, and the same gale, by tho
way, nearly sunk a British gunboat. ' Un
fortunately we touched at Cadiz, and as
there was cholera there were quarantined
at Tanjiers and Gibraltar, and actually de
tained four days at Oran, in Africa. When
we got off we sailed for Malta and encoun
tered a frightful sirocco on the way, From
Malta, where we were also quarantined, we
went to Alexandria and Cairo, and spent a
very pleasant week going up tho Nile in
dahabeahs. Then wo came down to Port
Said and were towed through the Suez
canal to Suez.
STORMS AND PIRATES.
“Then we had a hard time of it going
down the Red Sea. We were being towed
by a,stoamer and had gone two-thirds of the
way when a terrible storm broke. It tore
away our bowsprit, jibboom and foretop
mast and broke two 6-incli hawsers that
connected us w ith tho steamer. Of course
we were driven loose, and it took us many
hours to get our deck clear. Our next stop
ping place was lebelzakir, and we had good
snipe shooting tliero for four days. Then
we went on by Aden to Bombay, and as we
were off Socotra we were very near being
captured by pirates. It was night when we
saw them in a big boat quite close to us, and
there was nothing we could do but show
them our heels. They wero trying their
best to range alongside, and it was the ut
most we could do to get away from them.
“We spent a month at Bombay and then
went on to Ceylon and Hong Kong, and
thence to Yokohama, where we stayed a
month. When we left there we sailed for
San Francisco and arrived in thirty days,
beating a tea clipper by ten days. Good
run, wasn’t it? We overhauled tho yacht
at San Francisco and then spent six weeks
cruising among tho Sandwich Islands and
three at Tahiti. Our next trip was to Juan
Fernandez, whore, being short of provisions,
we had to satisfy ourselves with a goat and
twelve potatoes, which we secured on the
island, and thence wo sailed for Valparaiso
which we left on Feb. 1 of this year, after
being a month there.
SAILING ROUND THE HORN.
“What we did next is something I am
really proud of. We ran around the Horn
to the Falkland Islands, ami I believe mine
is the only sailing yacht that has ever done
so. Such vessels, os you know, tight shy of
the Horn. Well, we next visited Monte
video, Buenos Ay res. Rio Janeiro and many
other places, until wo finally came to Ber
muda, whence wo crossed over to New
Mr. Hillard and Mr. C. C. Clark aro the
only two of my companions who have come
home with me. Mr. Clark I might have
told you, joined us at Barbadoes. Mr.
Symington left us at Hong Kong, Mr.
Mitchell at Yokohama, Mr. Strong at San
Francisco and Mr. Halsey at Cherbourg.
And now. goodby, as my friends aro wait
ing for me. '
Tho dimensions of the Brunhilde aro as
follows: I length, 11U feet; beam, 2d feet;
draught ll.tifect. Her tonnage is 119. She
is schooner rigged and carries a square yard,
and is equipped with three boats and a
small launch. Her crew comprises ten men
before the mast, two cooks, two stewards, a
boat-wain and two mates. She still carries
the same sails that were on her when she
was launched more than two years ago.
Though slip has passed through several
storms, including a typhoon in the China
Sea, slip lias suffered no serious damage.
Capt. Phelps is uncertain whether he will
lay her up for the present or take her to
Nantucket, where his pcoplo are staying for

York Yacht Club, tho New Haven Yacht
Club, and the Atlantic Yacht Club.
NICOLINI WAS JEALOUS.
Tho Roooon Wherefore Sloeson Went
Away from Patti’s Castle.
Mr. Klosson, says the Chicago Herald, de
scribes thy Patti castle as situated upon a
picturesque crag, near the buso of two mag
nificent. mountains, in the Swansea valley,
in South Wales. The building was orig
inally two stories, a sort of castle, with tur
rets, but.since Patti Ixujgiit it vast additions
haw be-n made. Three conservatories
bin* Im-. ii added, and two oteguut billiard
rooms ere ted by way of L’s to the original
structure. The two latter commuuie.’.to by
two doors. I*'t when which is an orchestrion
whirhcosl 415<i,0b0. It was built in Geneva,
Switzerland, and plays over 100 op rax, and
has facilities for adding 1(H) .more. This
wonderful orcliurtrion Is inlaid with bronzes,
and is not only l-ountiful to look upon, but
its meiody tills tho castle as with the music
of mi orchestra of sixty pieces.
Patti's billiard parlor, in th-> northern
wing of the castle, is probably tl ■ > most
beautiful billiard parlor ni the world. A
rich partition divines tho parlor into two
apartments, In one is an English lwx'kct
billiard table us big ax the 01.1-l'nshioiiod
American table, and in the other is uu
American table. Tho latter is a marvel of
cortly workmanship. It is made of antique
Oak, richly Inlaid with ivory and silver and
bronze plncquus. .Soft carpets cover the
floor, exjiensivo paintings hang upon the
Wall*, and near the frescoed ceiling lx a gal
lery for n string orchestra. A grand piano
stands in one corner of the gallerv. The col
lection of cues in the billiard parlor is a re
markable one. It contains sticks that were
present cl to tho diva and Nieolini by many
admirers. Among them is one from Presi
dent Diaz, of Mexico, others from Vignaux,
I’lot, and young Jacob Bchaofor, and Joseph
Dion, Patti’s tutor. There are, also, four of
different designs that Klossou himself pre
sent'd to Patti.
Mr. Hlofflon described the conservatories,
the billiard rooms, the saloons, the sleopjng
apartments, the dining and breakfast, rooms,
the purloin and other apartments ns tho
“finest in tho world.’’
One of the conservatories is full of little
Cascades ami singing birds, and the atmos
phere is laden with the noogled perfume* of
Biany kinds of flowers. In thru conserva
tory tho diva uiijoyrrt many an evening
Dro.norudo with her American eucst. Jho
castle looks down upon one of the prettiest
sights the globe can boast. At the base of
the mountain is a gently declining sward,
through which runs a trout stream, whoso
ziz-zag course extends along the mountain’s
base for thirty-one miles. Beyond this, and
upon the diva’s immense estate, there is a
salmon stream which in its meanderings
measures thirty-five miles.
All the saloons, billiard rooms and conser
vatories of the castie are lighted by elec
tricity, while tho boudoirs and private
apartments are lighted by gas manufactured
on the premises. There are, says Mr. Slos
son, ninety servant* connected with the
castle, over whom a German named
Wilhelm Ileak presides as premier of the
estate. Ho has authority even over Nieo
lini, tho husband of tho world’s song bird,
and knows no superior at the cnstlo except
Patti herself. .
t \\ ithin and without the castle, says Mr.
Slosson, all is a sea of fruits and flowers and
foliage. The area of the estate is one of
magnificent parks. In her home Patti is a
queen, and her husband is a dissolute sot.
She entertains her guests regardless of him,
while lie entertains them, or lather his
guests, after the most selfish style. He has
one sort of wine for himself and another, a
less costly brand, for them. He appears to
be madly but sullenly jealous of her all the
while. She is a lady of brains and force of
character, keeping her own accounts, man
aging personally her o*n affairs, and direct
ing all matters of business on the estate.
He is a weak sister, with onlv enough
brains to comprehend the fact that others
so look upon him. Hence his uncongenial
temperament. Patti maintains 16 horses at
the castle and lives in a round of regal
pleasure, in which Nieolini often fails to
Slosson, during his two weeks’ stay, was a
particular favorite of Patti. Of all the
guests at the castle while he was there he
was, he says, the favorite. His apartments
were the choicest in the castle, his seat in
the conservatory dining apartment was
nearest the queen’s, and most elaborately
decorated with bouquets and best served
with wines. And when he finally tore him
self away from the regal hospitality and
affectionate regard of the song-bird he did
so with the assurance that after her South
American trip next year she would return
to America once more, although having al
ready bid it a third or fourth farewell.
“The fact is,” sn.j’6 Mr. Slosson, “that
Nieolini was so insanely and foolishly jeal
ous of me that I concluded to avoid trouble
by cutting short my delightful visit.”
Gen. Longstreet at Home.
From the Chicago Times.
Twenty-fivo years ago Gen. James Long
street was a man of blood. Tho one object
of his life was the slaughter of men.
What a change has come! Perfect peace
surrounds the old soldier in the evening of
A quiet farm house stands on the summit
of a mountain ridge in North Georgia. Be
fore it lies the valley of the Chattahoochee.
The ground descends rapidly, and from the
home of Longstreet one looks down upon
the treetops. For miles and miles stretches
a restless sea of green, fanned this way and
that way by the mountain winds. Beyond
rises a range of hills, and further still are
the Blue Ridge Mountains, darkly outlined
against the sky.
As I approached the house a few days ago
I saw no sign of life save a pickaninny in
the horse lot, and some very fine-looking
chickens in the yard.
The large double doors at the front of the
house stood half-open. There was no bell,
so I knocked. There was no response, so I
knocked again. My next rap, it seemed to
me, was enough to loosen the plastering in
tho hall. Still there was no response. At
that moment I caught sound of a snore.
“There is life in the old land yet,” I
thought, as I made an effort to awaken the
But the more I knocked the louder did
the snorer snore. I grew tired and quit
knocking. I turned from the door and
looked upon the beautiful and peaceful
scene stretching away to where the sky
touched the mountain tops. I was so vexed
that I wanted to throw a rock at a mocking
bird singing in a big sycamore near by.
Turning to the door again I put all my
strength into ono terrific crash against the
door. There was a sudden sound as of one
awakening inside the house, and “Lee’s old
war horse*' came down the hall to meet ino.
His hair was silver. His whiskers were
snow. His giant figure was somewhat bent,
but his eagle eyes still flashed with the old
time fire, and vears had only deepened the
strong lines in his face. He was dressed for
comfort. He did not care that his collar
•was awry, that his vest adorned a chair
post, that his Alapaca coat was ripped up
the back. He did not care that his slip
pei-s went “flap, flap, flap” against his
lieeis as he walked. 1 did not care either.
“Nobody here to-day but me,” said the
old warrior, as he showed me into the
library, where he had been sleeping on a
lounge. 1 spent a quiet afternoon with my
old friend. He talked to me about war and
showed me his old Confederate uniform.
“I shall put it on some day and havo my
picture taken,” he said.
“Have you had enough of war?” I asked.
“Yes, plontv on my own account,” he re
plied, “but if France and Germany should
•ome to blows I would like to go over and
see Von Moltke fight.”
Gen. Longstreet is wonderfully like tho
pictures of Emperor William. A friend
traveling in Europe sent him a large photo
graph of the Gorman Emperor, auu Mrs.
Lone;street’s cook believes to this day it is a
picture of her “Marso Jeems.”
Tlie General’s fortune is rather small but
he lives comfortably. He diVides his time
between a vineyard and a history which he
is now writing. The history will lie out in
about a year. It will contain some very
startling statements about the lath war.
The 1-ook will be made up mainly of ac
counts of adventures in the ware in which
Gen. Longstreet has taken part.
Gen. Longstreet is charming in conversa
tion, though he is very deaf. Mrs. Long
street is u very vivacious little lady, and of
course quite proud of the General. Her
maiden name was Maria Louise Garland,
and her parents lived in Virginia. Gen. and
Mrs Longstreet havo five children-—four
sons an 1 a <laughter. The oldest ion, Major
John Longstreet, was in the war at 15. and
is now ;J7 years old. The other soils are

dunghter, Miss Maria Louise Longstreet,
now 14 yours old, was born in Flint, Mich.
Gen. Longstroet was born about u mile
from Augusta, Gu., on tho South Caroliiui
side of the Savannah river. He is 65 years
old, is in splendid health, and bids fair to
live many years yet.
The Mystery of the New Church.
From tlic Louisville i A’y.) Commercial.
Avery mysterious circumstance is xuid to
have occurred near Coinmiskey, Jennings
county, lint., Sunday night, July 24. About
live months ago the peqplo of that neigh
borhood concluded to build a Baptist church,
as most of them wore of that faith. A col
lection was taken up and tho lumlx r pro
cured. For a time the work progressed \ cry
smoothly, until it came to the raising of
large beam, which was intended to uphold
the rafters of the structure. A derrick large
enough coukl not be procured, and work
was stopped. During the summer nights
the farmers havo frequently met to discuss
some means of raising the beam, but
nothing was ever done. On last Monday
morning, however, it wu* discovered that
the beam had lic.-.n phn-orl in position during
the night by seme unknown agency.
Hundreds of poople gathered about the place,
and the miracle, if such it may Is* termed,
has created greet religious excitement in
the neighborhood. There id not the slight
est sign that tho work was dope bv human
hands,und many imaginative people say that
they heard beautiful music ami saw strange
sights about the place on the night pre

SWORDSMEN IN INDIA.
Wonderful Skill Displayed by the Mon
of the East W Ith Thoir Keen Blades.
From thr English Mechanic.
The high-class damascened and exquisitely
tempered blades, the curved eimeters of
extra hard steel and tlie keen weapons of
highly finished durability carao to India
with those mighty conquerors of the East,
the Mohammedans, whose descendants
under the victorious and peace-promoting
British rule can no longer follow the craft,
disarming being the prevailing regime. The
comparatively few sword blades of sterling
quality nowadays are only to be found in
the palaces of loyal princes, most of them
heirlooms in their armories. Before the
great mutiny every native, even menial
servants, carried a sword; the peasant at
his plow wore the weapon of defense;
so did the harmless wanderer in search
of employ, and the black soldier on short
leave. It was a national appendage, due to
the unsettled state of popular feelings aud
lawless inclinations. The excited Moslem
printed and shouted the great text of the
false prophet, “The Sword is the Key of
Heaven and Hellwhile the quiet Hindoo
frequented midnight meetings and brought
his toghnr, or village sabre, to a razor edge.
The quiet dweller in England will scarcely
believe the prodigies performed in sword
cutting by these coanse, ill-looking bits of
curved metal, costing no more than tw o
shillings. The Englishman can excel in
everything if he chooses to master the ob
ject. Not less than lialf a dozen, perhaps
even a dozen, have attained such swords
manship with the oriental weapon as to lie
acknowledged champions, the title of “mas
ter of the sword” being bestowed on them
by universal consent
I had shot numerous wild beasts when I
was told by an expert that my hunting
education was very deficient, as 1’ could not
handle a cimiter to stop my game. I was
told to exercise continually on a pillar of
soft clay, and thus acquire the drawing cut
at the proper part of the blade; then on a
pillar loosely stuffed with cotton; then on a
newly killed wildcat or jackal, kneaded
Erevious to the practice by the feet of a
euvy man till the carcass became a loose,
soft mass; then on a great pond carp, a fish
clad with heavy, horny scales, like elastic
mail, considered an A1 feat to test man and
sword. My first trial at this experiment, re
sulted in a triple fracture of tlie good
blade, sundry scales flying in the air,
uncut, only dislodged; then the
artistic tour de force at paper
cones placed on a table, and muslin
thrown up to a height—ull manner of
strange and difficult Disks which, being only!
ornamental, I eventually forsook for the
useful and more easy decapitation of fierce
quadrupeds, beginning with a wounded
wild hog of full growth, and on essaying
the sloping stroke behind the ear, sweeping
off the head nearly, that important part
dropping between the fore feet. Not long
before I had seen a bold young fihoorka
princeling dismount from his elephant,
leaving it standing to await his return, and
follow on foot alone an immense boar he had
wounded with his rifle. On nearing tlie
powerful brute it champed its foamy tusks
to charge. He drew his kookree or ne
paulse sword, and, as it it sprang at him,
the blade was buried across piggy’s back, ail
but severing him in two parts.
Perhqps readers will not credit my state
ment of village peasants, with a sword and
shield attacking and slashing a full grown
tigor, when one of these powerful animals
has strayed from the forest into tlieir fields.
Yet I have often known such encounters, a
man or two always killed and several
wounded, the tiger’s skin spoiled, too, by
the long, deop cuts of their teghars. Isa w
a champion swordsman, a native soldier,
who went into the rose bushes alone witli
no other weapon—shield on shoulder. His
cuts were masterly; but the bold man was
soon struck down and severely
mauled. A crowd came to the res
cue and shot the beast; the hero
recovered. “The manly weapon” is
its designation. In their party fights each
side would swear that no other deadly arm
should be used. I accordingly witnessed one
of these combats. Swordsmen, shield on
arm, in twos and threes, came running to
the scene of quarrel—a cow’s trespass. It
was an exciting event. Clansmen were con
tinually arriving, and every man selected
ids foe. It was grand sword play. Tlie
iiead, legs and arms seemed to be the chief
points of attack. Being a British subject,
passing through an independent State, f was
obliged to gallop off as fast as my horse
could go at the commencement of this bat
At the same time and place, near my
camp, two brothers fought a duel about
land. One was killed, the other well
slashed. In two or three days I passed by
a battle royal. The King of Quae's troops
wero besieging some refractory land owners
who refused to pay rents. Heavy cannon
were booming around and musketry crack
ing ; the village swordsman and feudal re
tainers, under cover of night, made many a
daring sally, and left the print of tlieir
teghars on Moslem limbs. I saw blood
stained liodics on rude cots being carried
away to their homes. Tlie unequul struggle
had already lasted three days. That tough
and stubborn jxiasantry could boast that in
long i ears they had never once liecn de
feated—no, not even by regular troops.
Among some military trophies I once saw
a very rude, rusty teghar— locally worth a
shilling—which had cl nnly decapitated a
raw recruit, severing coat collar, brass
buckle and caste necklaoo of hard enamel
beads. Tlie niiablo village rebel had sprung
on tlie sepoy from ambush while trimming
his flintlock after a misfire. This and all
the low-priced teghars and tulwars are of
very soft metal, capable of being Ixint and
straightened across the blade, while the
arch or cutting portion, with razor edge,
offers immense resist once in the hands of an
expert, who, behind his shield, can watch
and measure his opportunity. Only the
straight thrust of British bayonets or dragon
blades can reach them.
The metal and finish of cutting arms im
prove when we enter North India. Hard
steel of fine temper and high workmanship
used to lie common until two Kikli war-and
the great mutiny abolished the demand for
such deadly wares. Tlie skillful Moham
medan craftsman had to emigrate for a
livelihood, or too often dwindled into a
blacksmith of harmless occupation. I re
