RUNNING A MUCK. A few years ago I left Bombay, India, as a passenger on the screw steamer Penang, which at that time used to carry the regular monthly mail between Bombay, Muscat, or Mascat (a sea-port on the northeast coast of Arabia), and the principal ports of the Persian Gulf. The steamer, a staunch vessel of about eight hundred tons, carried a full and very valuable cargo of merchandise, and her decks were densely crowded from stem to stern with deck passengers of both sexes and all ages without exception natives of Asia and Eastern Africa, who, in their heterogeneous, highly picturesque Oriental costumes and characteristic attitudes, presented a striking tableau vivant. We had a very pleasant passage across the tranquil, azure waters of the Gulf of Oman, and in due time sighted the bare and rugged cliffs of Bas- (Cape)-el Had, 130 miles southeast of the harbor of Mascat, and, shortly after, the mountain chain which forms the coast of the torrid, dismally desolate maritime territory of El Oman. Slowly and cautiously the steamer wound her way through the gorge. Presently she came in sight of three large, plain, stone buildings, fronting towards the offing, and standing on the beach of the harbor. The one in the center, the largest of the three buildings, looking somewhat like a three or four-story cotton factory, was the residence of the Imaum (Sm-tan) of Mascat; the one on its left side, similar in appearance, but withaU the window-openings iron-barred, and the majority of them carefully screened with Indian matting, was the Imaum’s “ zenana,” or harem; while the edifice on the right side of the Imaum’s palace, ft.bu^l^ipg mu^h lower t^an the two former, but of a less forbidding aspect, owing to its whitewashed walls and a luxuriant garden within its spacious precincts, was the residence of Her Britannic Majesty’s consul,or rather political agent, whose influence is scarcely less than that of the Imaum himself. Not being a British subject, I cared more about seeing something of the every-day life of the people of Mascat than the honor of being introduced to a British consul, or even political agent; and so rambled on through the town in company with the second officer and the steward of the steamer, who proceeded to the bazaar, to purchase some fresh provisions. After a protracted zig-zag tramp through the exceedingly narrow, tortuous and filthy streets, permeated by an atmosphere oppressively hot and positively sickening; brushing past closely muffled, carefully-veiled women, seri-ous- looking, long-bearded merchants and tradesmen, ragged soldiers and Bedouins, all but stark naked' fishermen, sailors, laborers, slaves, etc., we finally reached the bazaar, or market, where everything that is obtainable or manufactured in Mascat can be bought —from the well-known locusts, a favorite article of food, to the most gorgeous diamond necklaces of the Orient. My companions had just finished their purchases, and hired a couple of stout negroes to catry the goods to the beach, when all of a sudden we were startled by a general stampede of all the people of that portion of the bazaar which we had just left. They came rushing madly after us, the men shouting, the women screaming, and all of them gestiotilating in the wildest manner. What could cause such a sudden and universal flight of the population ? Was it a revolt among the rabble ? a dog afflicted with hydrophobia ? a sudden attack of hostile Bedouins from the adjacent desert? or had the good people of Mascat all gone raving mad simultaneously ?—questions more easily asked ^than answered by strangers. We turned around to look for an explanation from our negro hammala to car jut not ropped crowd, lismay, bags of , of the (porters) whom we had enga( ry the provisions to the beac one was to be seen ! They had their loads and fled with tl-which still rushed past us ii> stumbling and rolling over th provisions. Anxious to get o way of the terror-stricken populacf*, which came down upon us like an avalanche, we quickly mounted th 3 elevated platform of the nearest stah—a barber’s shop, or rather a head-shaver|s establishment, for Moslems rarely, if ever, shave their faces, but ni iversally their heads. From the exalted position we now occupied on the platform we had a good view'over the entire crowd, pushing irresistibly on through the narrow street, and soon discovered the cause of the stampede in the shape of an aiJiletic man, of dark olive complexion, in a state of absolute nudity, tmd apparently as slippery skinned as an eel,.bounding towards us with the velocity of panther pouncing on its^ prey. An ugly-looking Malay “ creese” (a dagger, at least fourteen inches in length, with a sharply pointed flaming blade) was tightly clutched in his right hand, gladiator-fashion, and dripped with blood ; his head was bent low like butting ram, and everything indicated that the fellow meant, nay, had already done, mischief. Indeed, we shortly afterward saw him plunge his knife up to the hilt into the breast of a poor old fisherman, who had not been fleet enough to escape him. No sooner had the villain withdrawn his weapon when a young shopkeeper, attracted by the general uproar, rushed out of a side street, and, unconsciously, right into the jaws of death. The next object of attack was a phlegmatic, long-bearded, heavy-built “ dervish ” (Moslem raonk), with three vol umes of manuscript under his arm. who dropped his library, took to his heels in right good earnest, and disappeared around the corner like a shadow. Frenzied by the escape of his intended victim, the human tiger duiied madly on in his course of destruction, overtook and grasped savagely by the right arm a handsome young woman, who had been making strenuous efforts to get out of his way ; but the well-known waddling gait peculiar to Moslem women, and mainly due to their far too spacious betasselled, lemon-colored, morocco-leather boots, was no match for the prodigious speed of tbe murderer. Ju st at this point the bloody career of the desperado was abruptly cut short by a well-mounted Bedouin, armed with a long lance, which, on dashing up behind the murderer, he drove deeply into his back at the very moment when a well-directed slash of a sword in the hands of an armorer on the neck of the assassin almost severed his head from his body, and laid him out on the ground stone-dead. A feeling <}f intense relief was manifested by the spectators of the terrible tragedy; and my companions and myself, all armed with revolvers, felt heartily glad to have been spared the awful probability of becoming his executioners. The corpse was soon identified as that of a Malay sailor, who had been known to be subject to occasional fits of insanity, or rather uncontrollable fits of frenzy, for few of those fellows who indulge in running a muck (by no means a very rare occurrence in certain parts of the Orient, especially in India and the Mtday Islands), can be pronounced absolutely insane. Jus t previous to these freaks, they usually shave off every hair on their bodies, and thoroughly oil or grease their persons from head to foot; then they start on their errand of destruction, armed only with a knife or dagger, and in a state of perfect nudity, in order to render theSr seizure all but an impossibility. Running at the top of their speed, they stab at ever^ living creature, man or animal, within their reach; but rarely, ever, stab the same victim more than once. They usually run straight ahead, never turning back or round abrupt comers,nor running into houses; nor will they stop until strangled by a running noose thrown over their heads, or until they are stunned, mortally wounded, er killed outright. Running a muck by Orientals, is attributable to various causes, as, for instance, to the consumption of opium, hasheesh, (Indian hemp), etc., to religious frenzy, to a thirst for revenge, or to acute mental and bodily suffering of some description. The casualties of the tragedy just described amounted to five persons killed outright, and about twenty others more or less seriously wounded. Shortly after the death of the desperado, and the removal of the killed and wounded, the locality gradually re-assumed its customary appearance, our fugitive hammals again appeared, and we returned to the steamer in safety. Overcast. A little cloud came into the noon^ And darkened the whole broad daylig;ht soon! Far flew the shadowd across the p l ^ . And the golden morning has sot in j aiii I A little cloud came into our noon. And darkened the love of a lifetime i^ n ? We never shall find our faith again, For the golden mornin;g has set in rain ! Items of Interest. St. Louis has a detective by the name of Eggs, and he is ^considered Hard to beat. England and Scotland are said to con« tain six hundred thousand habitual drunkards, including both sexes. The amount of opium consumed in this country at present is ten times greater than it was tiiirty years ago. The woman who became famous by walking fsom Ohicago to San Francisco, has been sent to the poorhouse . in the latter city. There is a man in Dubuque who ia so afraid of hydrophobia, that he keeps his hat full of memoranda how to proceed in case he is bitten. Dr. Glenn of Colusa county, Oal., has about 30,000 acres of wheat, from which he expects 25 bushels to the acre, making a total of 750,000 bushels. A law firm of Oarthage, Mo., has been indicted by the Grand Jury for running off witnesses who could have given important testimony against their client, accused of r o b b ^ . On a hot day full grown shade trees on the sidewalk are worth ten thousand dollars apiece. The man who sets out a single shade tree is better than the founder of four base ball clubs, bold as the assertion may seem. A stingy husband accounted for (J1 the blame of the lawlessness of hia children in company by saying his wife always gave them their own way. Poor thin gs! it’s rfl I have to give them,” was the prompt reply. Deaths take place the world over, at the rate of one every three seconds, and birilis at the rate of one every two seconds. There is a sense of profou nd relief in the thought that every time a man goes out of the world, a baby and a hall* are coming into it. A man named Byers, of Clover township, HI., was showing one of hia horses to a visitor lately, and placing his hw d on the animal’s hips said : “ There’s a colt that’s perfectly gentle.” At the satne instant the colt kicked him in the side, inflicting fatal injuries. A guardian of the poor, old Mrs. Gmmmiles—“ Green, peas and new ’ta te rs ! Does your motixer know them sort of things leads to the work’us?” Boy—“ Know ? 'Course eho' does ! That’s why she has ’em now; 'cos she knows she won’t get ’em there.” An Indiana clergyman recently stirred up a hornet’s nest by declaring in a sermon that certain candidates for offlce in the town had cards with their initials printed thereupon, which were exchangeable for drinka at various bars. The politicians are greatly excited. The celebrated Irish l^auty. Lady Cahir, desiring to astonish the vice-reg ^ court by the very newest fashion, had her i a i r dressed by an artist in Bath, and then spent four days and four nights of sea-sicknesb in crossing the Channel in the old sailing vessels from Bristol to Dublin, propped up carefully in her berth to prevent the disarrangement of her stupendous powdered toupet. Lancashire Brutality. The following is from the London Daily Telegraph: “ At the St. Helen’s police court six young men, colliers, were charged with a diabolical act of rufflanism. A few nights ago they made an attack on several cottages in the suburb of Parr, smashing the windows and doors. Qne house was occupied by a man named McGrath, over eighty years of age, and his wife. They forced an entrance, struck a hght, and then assailed the occupants. At the outset one of McGrath’s eyes was knocked out of his head, and he was kicked to the floor. A bucket of newly slacked lime happened to be convenient, and the ruffians holding open the mouth of the unfortunate man, forced some of the liquidized lime down his throat. The empty socket of his eye was also filled with the same material w d then the contents of the bijcket were emptied upon him. Reappeared to be dead after this treatment, and some of them expressed that opinion. His wife was kieked and beaten savagely, but managed to get away for the police. Colonel Gamble, J . P., had to take the deposition of McGrath at the St. Helen’s Hospital, where he lies quite blind. There was not the slightest ground for the ouiirage. The prisoners were committed for trial.” He who freely praises what he means to purchase, and he who enumerates the faults of what he means to sell, may set up a partnership with honesty. CatcUns: Woodehncks, The Newburyport Herald relates the following sto ry: Woodchucks are a most intolerable nuisance in R O w le y , some years cutting off half the pumpkin crop. One enterprising farmer made a formal declaration of war against them, and bought a dog that was reputed to be the champion _ wood-chuckist. Bose did shake the life out of half a dozen of the varmiuts, just to show what might be done in case of an emergency; but his interest declined, and he didn’t seem to take much stock in woodchucks. One morning at b r e ^ - fast the farmer’s little daughter, nine years old, told her father that she believed she could beat the dog at his own game, iand he replied that she should have a quarter apiece for aU she would catch, and the champion’s belt if she brought home more chucks for the next week than Bose did. Accordingly, after breakfast, she went out with no arms except what nature had endowed her with, and no traps except her cunning hands, and within, an h o ^ returned holdnig what appeared to be the grandfather of all woodchucks, a j^r-fect monster, by the hind legs, carryMg him at arm’s length, while he straggled to get free, and scratched and bit to the best of his abiUty. The farmer patted his daughter on the head in appreciation of her prowess, and then patted the woodchuck on the head ^so. The girl cau ght another in the afternoon, and within a week caught flve, beating the dog and cltuming the championship. Her method was simply to lie down back of a hole and patiently watch the appearance of its tenant, gabbing ^ him by the nape of the neck as soon as* his head emerged above ground. The farmer would dispose of tbe dog at a reasonable price, bnt that girl isn’t for sale. ______ ' The Hfheat Crop of Europe. The Mark Lane Express, in its weekly reviewof the breadstuff^ market, ! Bad weather has prevailed throughout the past wedc, but our farmers have kept a sharp lookout, and hav secured their crops. There are no reports ol sprouting, tJiough much wheat was stacked in pror condition, in consequence of high winds and low temperature. The same w e ^ e r hM ruled on the Continent. This will bring good samples to the front, and increase ^ e value of old stoA. There is little difference- in prioea since last reports, although the tendenoy is downward. F r^ c e is send^g back here the cargoes shipped hencel The drops here and in France are mostly' secure, and the dependence of botii countries on foreigners is materially .lessened. The latest estimates put our crop at seven per centum below the average,;
