The Note Was Contained in a Cliam- paguu Bottle and Said That the Nnroulc Was Struck by an Ice Berg In a Blinding Snow Storm on tlie Morning of February 10. Norfolk, Va., March 20.—William Johnson, winter watchman at Ocean View, Va., near the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, this morning picked up on the beach at that place a champagne bottle with several corks tied about its neck and with a letter enclosed, giving alleged information of Ihe sinking of the White Star steamship Naronic. It. reads: "3:10 a. in., Fcbmary 10, 8. S.

With the- assistance ot his cousin, the (nipress. and of the khednv. Ismail Pasha, who came In for a commission of several millions, it was possible to borroAV 000,tM>iU>i>n francs. The wild-cat methods that Avere employed to raise this sum have become ma;ltors of hlstoijy. Less than one- tenth of the 'money, however. Avas actually expended In the construction of the' canal, almost all of the work being done by the khedive's feliahin. whose only wages consisted of stripes from cow-hide whips. Tin- other nine- tenths found its way into the pockets of De Lesseps, of the family, of the khedive, and of other favorites of the empress. "The success of the canal has kept these stories out of print. But when the memoirs of the principal characters of these times shall bo published, sifter the usual delays In such cases, nnd when the truth shall .have been fully told, history will class De Lesseps with such men as Cartouche and Man- drlu, and make him worse, pi-chaps, for the latter never stole money. De L seps not only stole money but he usurped reputations and built up his renown on a foundation laid by others." UTILI/ING CUl'UT" AI11KS. l-TNCT I OX- Long Branch, N. J., a larch 20.—John Brown today shot a strange pigeon tha was among his flock. Upon its leg was found a small silver band bearing the following: "N. 13, 301." It is thought, the bird was from the lost steamer Naronic. DiO THK HONOR OF COL'XT ' ' ' . LKSSKPS: ' A Compatriot of the Fallen Frenchman Says 1-larch Things About Him. A French merchant who came to this country less than five years ago and who has kept in touch with current events in France tells the New York Sun that the reports "of a protest by the French people against Ilie sentence imposed on Ferdinand de Lesseps ure .entirely unfounded. He asserts... that the Paris newspapers ai\- protesting against Hie verdict of the court, but that, in tills case the press. Instead of reflecting public opinion, is trying l.i form it. "Yon innsl, not forget." said he. "that almost every editor and proprietor of a Parisian newspaper came in for a. part of the pillage of the peopV.-- savings by accepting fanny prices ,:< bribes for suppressing news. These men were, at least morally, accomplices, and their opinion of the sentence, therefore, is obviously biased and consequently of no account. "The real opinion we want is that of the. people of the 100,000 bourgeois who have been almost ruined by ihis immense robbery, and of the famiH--s cJf those., ' more nmnn'.rons than one would think, who have been driven 10 suicide. Their opinion , will be found very different. Those men cannot lind words violent enough to assail the name of De Lesseps, nor any punishment too severe'to lie applied to him. And their opinion, in spite of what the French newspapers of today may s;|v. will be that: of history, for when ilghi shall have been thrown on the truth concerning the Sue/ canal, as it has been on the dealings a I Panama, Do Lossops will be classed among ihe greatest robbers of modern lime;-. "As far as the Sne» canal is concerned the end may have .instilled the means, for the time being at least. Bill it is nevertheless true that as a result of the Sail-/, thefts, which were even greater than those of Panama, iho tonnage tax, which ought not lo have boon more than '2 francs, is now 10 francs for vessels passing through the canal. The way In which De Lesseps came to bo connected with the construction of the. Hue/, canal was, to say tho least of it, peculiar. N'apoleon I. Avanted to attack ICngland through India, after making himself master of ICgypt, and he conceived the Idea of piercing the isthmus. He summoned a commission of engineers from Franco, with Mongo and Laplace at (ho head of it. When the engineers arrived In lOgypt and began their investigations they found traces of tho old canal built by Pharaoh, and they adopted the old lines in Ihe plans which they made for Napoleon. It was estimated that the isthmus could be pierced for fjO,000,(XK) francs, and the emperor ordered that the work should be begun. Shortly afterward, as is well known, he was forced to return to Franco. Kleber was assassinated, the course of political affairs in the empire, was changed, and the work at Sue/, came to a standstill. "Some years later, In the reign of Louis Philippe, Ferdinand De Lessops was appointed French consul at Cairo, and by a curious streak of luck he discovered one day, in tin; local archives, the, plans for the Suejs canal made by Mongo and Laplace. Ho began hja life. a.s a pirate by appropriating these plans, foreseeing that some, day he should be able to turn them to his advantage. When the second empire was InauguhittMl, Napoleon JIJ. nuir- rlitl Eugenie do Montijo, wlxo was a I'revent ion of a Shot-k lo the Modesty of Yuung Princesses. A friend writes to me from Munich, K-iys a C(irrcsp:.indent of the New York Recorder, of a rather amusing incident which she witnessed during the ex- nibition of pictures that, has recently been held here. -Most notable among the paintings was that enormous canvas of Itochc'grosso representing tin- fall of Babylon. Those who have either seen the picture itself or its production by print or photograph will remember that there are a number of ladies in the- foreground in costumes that .ire. to saiy the least, exceedingly decollete, and in poses that can only lie described as abandoned. One day while my friend was in the young Princesses Elizabeth and Angus la of I'avaria. granddaughters of Emperor Francis .loseph, appeared upon the scone with a number of ladies and gentlemen in waiting. They were being conducted by the grand chamberlain of Ilie court-Baron Pergler. a very fussy and pompous old fellow, who. as soon as he caught sight of tlie Koche- grosse picture and of its nude figures, immediately caused the gentlemen hi attendance to arrange themselves so as to form a kind of human screen in front of the painting, so thai the modesty of the .young princesses might not be in any way offended. It appears thai the spi-i-tm-le thus jvospnted by all these chamberlains a.nd 'aiidu<-do-ciimp, arrayed in line, and by the manifestation of :mxieiy displayed by the old baron wa.s exceedingly ludicrous. II served, however, to show that chamberlains and court functionaries, j who are giujerally credited with being the most useless creatures hn.-iginable. can sometimes 1m turned to good account, namely, for instance, when they are utilized as living screen-.

Not .Unit, common sense is undesirable in such circumstances, hut it is rare that it is surprising when one sees It manifested. While I lie e>.tse of the Indian Is a. ro- markable exception to the rule,, Mrs. Monroe. Wheeler of Xntley, N. .1., has just manifested still more wonderful self-eoiiiroi. Her husband has been the proprietor of a hotel on the Fnssalo river, which was oii'.'e known as the Bend Vl-;w house, but he is no longer collected with its management nor with the management of his wife. Mrs. YVlioolor has turned him out. of doors. About a week ago he went to her room and told her that he was going to elope with one of the servant girls. This frankness wiis as unusual as it. was cnnimend.ible, bur there w;e,ro peculiar reasons for it. The wil'o immediately sent for Die girl and asked her If what the .nian had said Avas true.
