From the N. B. Shipping List.
Bark Alice Frazier, Paita, Jan. 10th, 1857.
Mr. Alitor: Within a few years past there has
much said in the various newspapers in the
ff haling interest, relative to which is the most desira
ble recruiting mart for the North Pacific whaling fleet,
an Francisco, or the Sandwich Islands. There are
fliany pomts at varience, and I propose to solve them
from a thorough and practical knowledge of both
places. I have been a frequenter at the Islands since
1541, and profess to know them root and branch.
And after sever years of unavailing trial to learn
Something definite of San Francisco from the few
transient ships visiting there, (some masters speaking
for, and others against the place) I have at length
ciaJe a thorough test for myself, and through the
valued columns of our Shipping List, would impart
the full extent of my knowledge and views to my
brother spouters throughout the fleet. I propose to
give them the entire facts as they transpired with me,
that they may judge for themselves. Also, to advance
my own views as they have become developed, for
the benefit, and at the request of many masters and
people connected with both ports.
It has been currently reported, so as to gain
credence through the fleet, that we cannot retain our
men at San Francisco as we have been in the habit
of doing elsewhere. It is not so. I have thoroughly
tested this matter, even against the convictions of
half the legal fraternity and courts at law, and in the
face of a general discouragement from many of the
raost intelligent shipmasters and merchants of San
Francisco. They judge the whalemen's case by the
many defeated efforts of the merchant men. The
difference ia in this : Nearly all the merchant vessels
clearing from home ports for San Francisco, clear
from the home custom house under their original
Articles, which constitutes a domestic voyage only;
hence they cannot compel their crews to go beyond
San Francisco, as they have adhered to the ship to
the extent the law demands by their contract. It is
useless to produce Articles showing the men have
Bhipped "to perform a voyage to San Francisco, and
elsewhere;1 for the laws do not compel seamen to go
from domestic ports upon a foreign voyage when
sailing under original Articles.
But with the whaleman, who always has certified
Articles, it is different. We never sail' from home
rorts under original Articles, but, going forth as we
do upon a foreign voyage, (to the Pacific and else
where) sailing under duplicate Articles certified by
the Collector of customs, depositing the original in
the custom house, it follows that, go we where we
will, into this port or that, foreign or domestic
the true interest of the voyage is not fulfilled until
the ship returns back from whence she came.
Under this belief, I dropped anchor in San Fran
cisco in the month of November last, intending only
to lay a few days to get my recruits and obtain a few
small stores, and perhaps, to ship my sperm oil should
chance occur. While at supper, some five hours
after having come to anchor, with one of those mi
gratory officers on the lookout whom every ship i3 apt
l0 lc cumbered with, promoted perhaps for their
whaling qualities, but totally irresponsible as an
officer a boarding house landlord who had a sail
boat alongside for the purpose, took off nineteen of
my men entirely unknown to the gentleman with the
beaver on, who was gazing with a marine glass at the
fort and the shipping around with all the innocense
and curiosity of a country school marm. I came from
the cabin, and seeing the boat gone, put a glass upon
and saw at a glance the several heads of my men
peering over the gunwale; called the officers from
supper, cleared away a boat in chase, with orders, if
unsuccessful, for the mate to go to the chief of Police
and demand the arrest of the deserters. The chase
proved of no avail. The men landed and soon dis
persed through the town, even before my boat could
reach the shore. The application to the Police proved
of as little import, for the chief declined arresting
them without a warrant, and was unable to tell the
proper place to apply for the required warrant. On
application to the Police Judge, (Coon) he had doubts
of being able to help me in the matter, thinking it
out of his jurisdiction ; but with a courteous spirit of
accommodation, promised to study my Articles and
take time to consider the case, as to the legality of an
arrest. On arresting his attention at Section 7th, of
Act passed July, 1790, he thought a doubt no longer
existed. Some days after, while Judge Coon was
giving orders for the warrant I had demanded, I
employed Geo. W. Baker as my legal adviser, the
ex-Judge of Police Court who was thought to be
conversant with the marine law. Mr. Baker soon
convinced Judge Coon it was not in his jurisdiction to
arrest my seamen, having once undertaken the thing
himself and failed. He advised my applying to the
U. S. Commissioner, (Johnson) who at first declined
acting, until we read to him the above mentioned
Sec. 7th, whereupon he concluded to give us a war
rant for the U. S. Marshal to arrest certain of my
seamen, most of whom had already shipped in the
merchant service and gone to sea during the delay
caused by the utter ignorance of almost every one
applied to upon marine law, as regards deserters.
Several days having past, I had already opened my
new shipping Articles and partly shipped a new crew;
and finding men so plentiful, I only proposed testing
the matter of arresting deserters upon a few of my
best men. One of my boatsteerers a prime forecastle
man, had shipped on board the Borodino from the
same office where I was shipping my new crew, such
was their confidence in the supposition that they could
not be arrested for desertion. The Borodino was at
that moment in the stream with her topsail yards
hoisted aloft, her yard-arms loosed, with fair wind
and fair tide, awaiting the arrival of her master, to
sail for Callao. I proposed to the Marshal to take
those two men, as being the best available test we
sould make, except we went on board the man-of-war
where four or five of my seamen had donned their
blue shirts and clean faces, amounting to quite a
After some little detention from the men having
ten Rtnwed awav. on seeinar us comintr. the mate of
the Borodino a gentlemanly fellow, dug them out
from their hiding places, and the Marshal quietly
made his arrest and we took them before the Com
missioner to prove property and put them on board
my vessel in irons.
While the men were yet retained in custody by the
Marshal, awaiting the leisure of the Commissioner, a
lawyer of the place, one I. B. Manchester made his
appearance and began to be inquisitive to learn what
we were going to do with those sailors. I knew him
instantly by the previous discnption given of him.
Proposing to learn his intentions, I immediately
accosted him, demanding to know if he was inclined
to make me trouble about the arrest of my seamen.
Before answering my query, he wished to know who
I had emnloved as consul: who advised mo to the step
taken: and finally, who had had the profound igno-
ranee to issue a warrant, ior me u. . auhibuoi iu
arrest deserters? I had been repeatedly told that
Air. Manchester was one of the most protouna marine
lawyers in the city, and from the utter ignorance I
had found elsewhere, I proposed conciliating this
gentleman and testing his marine knowledge. Among
other things, he told me he could prove instantly that
even the present arrest was illegal, and that too by
precedents which had come up for trial under that
same roof we were then under. Furthermore, that
men put on board under this arrest could be got out
before night under the Habeas Corpus act I de
manded proof, and promised future employment for
him'should any more cases occur. He directly took
me into an adjoining library and producing the 2nd
vol. of California Reports, turned to page 144,
Exparte Lewis Crandell, where Justice Heydenfeldt
delivered the opinion of the Court, and whore it was
proved in the case of a deserter from the ship Hornet,
that Justices of the Peace alone could commit and try
Thus every word Mr. Manchester had told me was
proved true, and within the next half hour I gained
more shrewed, profound knowledge of the substitutes
. of marine laws than I had ever been able to attain
before. This gentleman had long practiced at the
New York bar; and from my own experience of his
abilities in marine law, 1 would advise oir masters
frequenting that port to employ him in all pettifoging
cases connected with sailors, in preference to any
Thus it will be seen from my own experience and
cases found in California Reports, that we should
apply to Justices of the Peace alone for the arrest of
deserted seamen in which case only, they cannot be
again taken out under the Habeas Corpu3 act
The only remaining law case I was troubled with,
was that of one of the men who attached the "day
previous to my being ready for sea, in a suit to claim
his voyage upon demanding his discharge, which I
declined giving. The gentleman came down to the
ship drunk one night, when the plank connecting the
ship with the wharf not being of that meandering,
sesaw curve which geometricaly applied to his gait,
his utter independence of circumstances led him to
insist upon maintaining his surpentine way on board,
when he misstayed on the point of tacking and fell
into the dock. On the strength of the slight hurt he
received under those circumstances after having de
serted the ship for several days and engaging to work
in a distitlery on shore, he demanded his discharge.
I pronounced him a deserter, and declined having
any thing farther to do with him. He seized the
ship, which a few hours sufficed to redeem again, by
bringing two merchants to give bonds to the amount
of $1,590. When, after giving in the mate's and my
own depositions, we sailed, leaving the case for future
Seamen were as easy got as at the Islands; as I
obtained a full crew of the heaviest men I have ever
had, and upon more favorable terms of shipment

row let us see the relative benefit to be derived
rom either port in the great contending matters of
exchange, recruits, commissions on disbursments,
freighting oil and bone, and on sales of oil, harbor
dues, and the ease of access to and from all the great
cruising localities in the Pacific. First, in the mat
ter of exchange at San Francisco, I found Whalemen's
sills worth a premium of 2 per cent And as the
West must always remain in debt to the East in
money matters, it follows that good Bills would pro-
oaoiy always sell lrom the above rate to par value.
While on the other hand, the mean discount at the
slands for the past several years is about 10 per cent
The charges on my disbursments was 2 per cent,
which would have made my bills of exchange netted
at par, had 1 been drawing money there. Commis
sions ou sales of oil 5 per cent, with the sale guaran
teed ; or otherwise. Commissions on freighting,
per cent., though masters may freight their oil
themselves, as well there as at the Islands, except
they leave it behind for others to freight after their
departure. These commissions, it will be seen, about
balance the cost of exchange at the islands, where
there are none whatever to pay.
It will be seen by referenco to the subjoined tables
of harbor dues, recruits and cash to crew, compara
tive between the two places, that as it stands, the
balance is somewhat in favor of the Islands. Yet
where a ship is purchasing provisions, slops, whale
ine and gear, the balance would turn greatly in
avor of San Francisco. I purchased towline at 19
cts. from lubbs & Co's. new rope walk, made in the
best manner, of the choiest material imported fr:m
Manila. While at thti Islands the prices range from
25 to 35 cts. I also purchased slops, chain and
anchor, and craft for one hundred per cent, less than
they are ever got at the Islands.
Vessels can be repaired in the dry dock, up the
bay, at very reduced rates, as may be seen by the
published list of prices.
Jb or the locality of San Francisco is connected by
easy access to our whole extent of whaling ground, it
offers the same advantage in the fall season, which
the bandwich Islands afford in the spring. Quicker
passages can be and are made from all our northern
whale grounds to San Francisco, than to the Islands.
have been from Kodiak to San Francisco in ten
days. From Kamschatka Sea, (land to land) on my
last passage, in fifteen days: and should set the
passage from the Ochot3k to be about 20 days. From
San Irancisco we have the entire command of every
whale ground in the eastern board of the Pacific;
consisting of the California ground, seven days sail;
Oallipagos Islands, one month ; the Line, off Shore,
and all the more southern grounds. These grounds
can only be attained to from the Island by the tedious
method of tacking out through the trades into the
variables, to make eastern, at the expense of from
thirty to forty-five days time. But in the spring, the
Islands are much the most easy of access to any ship
coming irom the south, leaving her in the same
weatherly position to the northern grounds which San
Francisco is to the southern grounds m the fall sea
But summing all the favorable points connected with San
Francisco, a ship should not be Induced to go there except they
have a good catch of oil on board, that it may pay to let the
crew run, when it becomes cheaper to ship a new crew than to
arrest the old ones. Though it has been seen that we may arrest
them In spite of landlords and lawyers, and have them confined,
or put on board at our discretion. Yet, it is not with the same
ca9e as at the Islands, and upon this coast, where we have but
to call a Kiko, or a Vigilant and have the deserters secured or
put on board. But there is a certain formula to be gone through
with, which becomes both tedious and expensive when applied to
a wni'.e snips company, it cost me upwards or to arrest
and put on board two deserters. It would have cost me between
$50 and $75 to have shipped two equally as good men; includ
ing advance, five dollars, for shipment, &c. It should be under
stood' that it will not do to arrest deserters where there has been
any corporal chastisement, as the same trouble and expense
would arise as at home.
Ships not having oil enough to wish to run the risk of losing
their crews, can anchor ou the bar outside of the Golden Gate
heads, in from 6 to 8 fathoms water, from three to five miles off
shore. When, taking one cf the many pilot boats around, they
can procure their recruits in two tides, and be ready for sea
again in twenty-four hours. The great objection to this, how
ever, is that where a sliip ha3 been out on a seven mouths cruise,
as was my case it become? both necessary and prudent the
men should have a run on shore to counteract the latent scurvy
which may be supposed to be lurking in the system; though
Cape St. Lucas may answer the purpose.
There are four light houses in and around San Francisco,
leaving it easy for the most timid navigator to go la night or
day. Coming on the coast, make the south Farrallone Rock,
lat. 37 41 N., long. 122 69 W., on which Is a revolving light
plainly seen twenty miles in every direction, around the
whole sweep of the horizon. Steer from the Farrallone light
N. E. by E. i E. (by comp.) until you make the first high
lizht on Boneta point, ("the north head of the entrance) a fixed
light, as are all but the Farrallone keep Boneta light bear

headl which vou are to brine in range with the light on Alcatra-

(some 20 ft. above water) laying about one mile S. W., by W.,
(comp.) from Fort Point. Give Fort Point a good berth as you
pas3 in, as the strong eddies on cither side of it trouble ships In
light wind, though other dangers only extend out a few 6hips'

it is safe to know that the currents do not set directly In and
out of the entrance, but the flood tide sets up the south shore,
sweeninfir across the entrance before it turns in. While the ebb
in setting out. turns short around the Mile Rocks and point
Lobos, down the south shore. Consequently In light winds ships
will be set cast the entrance to the north by the flood tide; when,
after the harbor lights are shut in, steer to the south if there is a
wind, to open them again; or if calm, come to an ancnor on me
bar, to avoid Duxbury Reef, making out four miles from the
north shore, being about six miles from Boneta light. The
