Dnnscra of Arctic X irrigation.
It is utterly impossible for the landsmen, or even
our coasters near home, to comprehend one half the
jerils of Arctic navigation. Although familiar with
the journals of Parry, Franklin, Dr. Kane, and other
tin J red spirits in the same field of explorations, those
ivho sit at home can only form a faint idea of the
courage and endurance necessary to those who ven
ture within the regions of the Arctic circle.
The public have already had one work from Dr.
Kane on the subject of Arctic discoveries, which met
with an unprecedented sale, and we are now promised,
early in October, two more volumes, of nearly five
hundred pages each, relating to his last expedition in
ecarch of Sir John Franklin. It will be a work of
the most thrilling interest, as well as great scientific
and geographical importance. "We Copy an extract
from advanced sheets :
A BRUSH WITH DEATH.
We crossed Murchison Channel on the 23d, and
encamped for the night on the land-floe at the base
of Cape Parry ; a hard day's travel, partly by track
ing over ice, partly through tortuous and zigzag
leads. The next day brought us to the neighborhood
of Fitz-Clarence Rock, one of the most interesting
monuments that rear themselves along this dreary
coast ; in a region more familiar to men, it would be
a landmark to the navigator. It rises from a field of
ice like an Egyptian pyramid surmounted by an
I had been anxious to communicate with the Esqui
maux of Netelik, in the hope of gaining some further
intelligence of Hans. Our friends of Etah had given
me, in their own style, a complete itinerary of this
region, and we had no difficulty in instructing God-

1 which stood between us and the settlement. He made
the attempt, but found the snow-drift impassable ;
and Petersen, whom I sent on the same errand to
Tessiusak, returned equally unsuccessful.
The next day gave us admirable progress. The ice
opened in leads before us, somewhat tortuous, but,
on the whole, favoring, and for sixteen hours I never
left the helm. "We were all of us exhausted when the
day's work came to a close. Our allowance had been
small from the first ; but the delays we seemed fated
to encounter made me reduce them to what I then
i thought the minimum quantity six ounces of bread
oust ami a jump oi uiiiow me size oi a wamui ; u,
paste or broth, made of these before setting out in the
morning, and distributed occasionally through the
day in scanty rations, was our only fare. We were
all of us glad when, running the boats under the lee
of a berir, we were able to fill our kettles with snow
and boil up for our great restorative, tea. I may
remark that, under circumstances of most severe pri
vation, I found no comforter so welcome to the party
as this. We drank immoderately of it, and always
While the men slept after their weary labor,
McGary and myself climbed the berg for a view
ahead. It was a saddening one. "We had lost sight
of Cary Island ; but shoreward, up "Wostenholm Chan
nel, the ice seemed as if it had not yet begun to yield
to the influences of summer. Everything showed how
intense the last winter had been. We were close
upon the 1st of July, and had a right to look for the
North Water of the Whalers where we now had solid
ice or close pack, both of them almost equally unfa
vorable to our progress. Far ofl" in the distance how
far I could not measure rose the Dalrymple rock,
3 projecting from the lofty precipice of the Island
aflCau , UUt UL'UVCt'U US aliu ui 1110 lttuu kjm. opwiu
itsplf from the base of Saunder's Island unbroken to
the far south.
The next day's progress was, of course, slow and
wearisome, pushing through alternate ice and water
for the land-belt. We fastened at last to the great
floe near the shore, making our harbor in a crack
vhich opened with the changes of tide.
The imperfect diet of the party was showing itself
more and more in the decline of their muscular pow
er. They seemed scarcely aware of it themselves, and
referred the difficulty they found in dragging and
pushing to something uncommon about the ice or
sludge rather than to their own weakness. But, as
we endeavored to renew our labors through the
morning fog, bolted in on all sides by ice-fields, so
distorted and rugged as to defy our efforts to cross
them, the truth seemed to burst upon every one. We
had lost the feeling of hunger, and were almost satis
fied with our pasty broth and the large draughts of
tea which accompanied it. I was anxious to send our
Email boat, the Erie, across to the lumme hill, Appah,
where I knew from the Esquimaux we should find
plenty of birds ; but the strength of the party was in
sufficient to drag her.
We were sorely disheartened, and could only wait
for the fog to rise, in the hope, of some smoother plat
form than that which was about us, or some load that
min-Vif s:vcfi us the minful labor of tracking. I had
climbed the iceberg, and there was nothing in view
except Dalrymple Rock, with its red brassy face tow
ering in the unknown distance. 15 ut I hardly got
back to my boat before a gale struck us from the
northeast, and a. floe, taking upon a tongue of ice
about a mile to the north of us, began to swing upon
it like a pivot, and closed slowly in upon our narrow
At first our own floe was driven before the wind ;
but in a little while it encountered the stationary ice
at the foot of the very rock itself. On the instant the
wildest imaginable ruin rose around us. The men
sprang mechanically, each one to his station, bearing
back the boats ard stores ; but I gave up for the mo
ment all hope of our escape. It was not a nip, such
as is familiar to Arctic navigators, but the whole
platform where we stood, and for hundreds of yards
on every side of us, crumbled and crushed and piled
and tossed itself madly under the pressure. I do not
believe that our little body of men, all of them disci
plined in trials, able to measure danger while combat
ing it I do not believe there is one who this day can
explain how or why hardly when, in fact we found
oursplvp afloat. We onlv know that in the midst of
a clamor utterly indescribable, through which the
braying of a thousand trumpets could no more have
been heard than the voice of a man, we were shaken,
and raised, and whirled, and let down again, in a
Ewelling waste of broken hummocks, and as the men
grasped their boat-hooks in the stillness that followed,
the boats eddied away in a tumultuous skrecd of ice
and snow and water.
We were borne along in this manner as long as the
unbroken remnant of the inshore floe continued re
volvingutterly powerless, and catching a glimpse
every now and then of the brazen headland that
looked down on us through the snowy sky. At last
the floe brought up against the rocks, the looser frag
ments that hung round it began to separate, and we
"were able, by our oars and boat-hooks, to force our
battered little flotilla clear of them. To our joyful
surprise, we soon found ourselves in a stretch of the
land water-wide enough to give us rowing room, and
"uk the assured nromise of land close ahead.
As we n eared it, we saw the same forbidding wall of
ice; as at Sutherland and Hakluy t. We pulled
along its margin, seeking in vain either an opening
of access or a nook of shelter. The gale rose, and the
ice began to drive again ; but there was nothing to
be done but to get a grapnel out to the belt and hold
on for rising tide. The Hope stove her bottom and
lost part of her weather-boarding, and all the boats
were badly chafed. It was an awful storm ; and it
was not without constant exertion that we kept afloat,
bailing out the scud that broke over us, and warding
off the ice with boat-hooks.
At 3 o'clock, the tide was high enough for us to
scale the ice-cliff. One by one, we pulled up the
boats upon a narrow shelf, the whole sixteen of us
uniting at each pull. We were too much worn down
to unload ; but a deep and narrow gorge opened in
the cliffs almost at the spot where Ave clambered up ;
and as we pushed the boats into it on an even keel,
the rocks seemed to close above our heads, until an
abrupt turn in the course of the ravine placed a pro
tecting cliff between us and the gale. We were com
Just as we had brought in the last boat, the Red
Erie, and were shoring her up with blocks of ice, a
long unused but familiar and unmistakable sound
startled and gladdened every ear, and a flock of
eiders, flecking the sky for a moment, passed swiftly
in front of us. We knew that we must be at their
breeding-grounds ; and, as we turned in, wet and'!
hungry, to our long-coveted sleep, it was only t&
dream of eggs and abundance.
We remained almost three days in our crystal re
treat, gathering eggs at the rate of -twelve hundred a
day. Outside, the storm raged without intermission,
and our egg-hunters found it difficult to keep their
feet ; but a merrier set of gourmands than were
gathered within never surfeited on genial diet.
