X Day Abi the Wbaln, ia the Seas af
The iuq Lad scarcelj risen from its watery bed,
far away amid the blue wares of the eea of Japan,
tinting the horizon and the sea with ita golden
uama. when a about from the mast-bead was
heard, " There she blows ! There she blows?"
Where away?" cried the captain.
Three points off the lee-bow, sir," replied
the man aloi t.
' What does it look like?" inquired the cap
tain. Riajht whale, sir fin ont lies like a log,"
was the reply.
Oar good skipper, who was a man of about
forty, wkh a rough and hardy-looking Visage,
orders the tp" at the helm to " keep her oft' a
point;" meanwhile he suspends the spy-glass
about his neck, and ascends the rigging for the
purpose of getting a better view of the prize.
iow, our ship was a snug craft, of about fire
hundred tons burthen, and contained a crew that
were unequaled in point of intelligence, energy
and eood nature. Led on as they were by bold
and daring officers, but a few of those monsters of
the deep escaped the deadly lance u tbey came
within killing distance. While the movement
of the whale were watched from aloft, all hands
were called and preparations made for the chase.
The boats were swung off the cranes ; the har
poon and lances, spades, hatchets, knife and
backet, water-keg, thole-pins, and other para
phernalia for catching ana killing whales, were
placed in the boats. The ship was kept off,
bearing down with a gentle breeze towards an
old cow-whale and her calf, which lay busking
in the warm rays of the burning sun. When
within a half mile of them, the order was given
to haul the main T&rd aback and lower away.
The crew step nimbly about, all bustle and con
fusion ; the ropes rattle on the deck ; yards and
blocks squeak as they turn on their bolts, and
now the soils press back upon the mast.
" Belay all, and man the boats," shouted the
The boatsteerers or harpoonmen are all ready in
their respective boats, together with their mates,
and as they strike the water and the tackles are
east off, the crew of each scramble down the
chains of the ship and place themselves at their
regular posts, as each man has a set daty to per
form ; the nature of that duty is determined by
the place he occupies in the boat. Six men form
a boat's crew, viz.: a mate, boatsteerer and four
regular oarsmen; the boatsteerer usually pulls
an oar until the boat approaches near the whale
they wish to attack, when he " peaks" his oar,
and standing up in the bow of the boat, grasps
the harpoon, and makes ready to fatten to the
whale whenever the order is given by the mate.
The mate, daring the chose, steers the boat, but
after the whale ia struck or harpooned, he takes
the bow and t te boatsteerer the steering oar.
Four of our boats were now down, skimming
or or the waves, and gradually diverging from
each other as we left the ship. Having arrived
in the vicinity of where we saw them go down
last, we peaked our oars, and waited impatiently
for the whajes to come op. All eyes were intent
ly watching any unusual ripple in the water,
not knowing precisely where they would rise;
besides, there was a great rivalry existing between
the'boats crews to see which would fasten to the
mjst whales, as each crew received credit upon
t-ie ship's books fcr every whale they secured,
and these books were examined by the owners
after the return home of the ship; hence the
egmess to be the first to discover the whale as
she broke water, in order to gain the advantage.
Our suspense was not long.
Slie brjke water within fifty yards of the first
mi:a8 beat. Every man sprang to his oar, dip
ping it lightly, and exerting every muscle ; the
b)it shot noiselessly and swiftly forward; but
b.f.re either could reach a fastening distance, she
iieovered us, and with a loud spout and a vicious
rreep of her flakes, darted away, while the fool
ish clif, which was quite young, mistaking the
first mate's boat for its motfter, rolled itself,
alongside, emitting a faint little spout, as it
rout-id its nose against the side of the boat.
" Shall I fasten to this little fellow?" asked
the boatsteerer, as he stood hesitating, with har-po-jn
Give it to him, George; secure the calf and
"the cow will not leave," replied the mate.
It seemed cruel to torture this unsuspecting
and unsophisticated little creature, as he writhed
in anguish, with a harpoon three feet in' length
driven into bis body. Not being able to discrim
inate between friends and enemies, it lay beating
tee water witn its nutee, witnout onering to ngbt
or run, after the fashion of old whales.
Knowing t&at the cow would return to her
calf, the mate payed out line and steered off at a
suitable distance, while the other boats were
endeavoring to harpoon her. Lashing the water
with flakes and fins, making it white with foam,
and spouting furiously loud enough to be herrti
derer.il mika she started off on a circular course
towards her progeny, alternately living under
water and swimming on the surface, till within
a few yards of it, when 6he went down, and im-,
mediately came up directly under the calf, land
ing it on her back. She now struck away from
the boats with incredible speed, imagining,
perhaps, that her escape with her younjj was
certain ; but she was made aware of her mistake
when she had run the full length of the slack-rope
that he had been payed out of the mate's boat,
for the precious ourthen was pulled from her
It seemed now as if her anger knew no bounds ;
with the suppleness of an eel, and the rapidity of
thought, she swept her flakes from eye to eye ;
then raisinf them over her back, so as to nearly
touch the top of her head, threw them back upon
the water with astonishing force, in the mean
while spouting most furiously. It was truly
frightful to witness those ferocious and threaten
ing attitudes, which seemed to evince so much
wrath, disappointment and chagrin. A mingled
feeling of awe, fear and insignificance came over
me, as I beheld this mighty monster make its
mad gestures. How easy it would have been for
her, while in her dreadful anger, to have con
signed us all to a watery grave! Fortunate,
indeed, for man their mortal enemy, that they
know not their power f
Again she made another circuit, and as she
came alongside of the calf, threw her fin over it,
and hugging it to her side, sped away the second
time to make good her escape ; but the distance
of a few yards straightened the rope. However,
nothing daunted, she kept on, taking the boat
after her, the line having been made fast to the
loggerhead of the boat. Seeing at length that
she gained nothing in distance from her enemy,
she relinquished her hold and with an ominous
sweep with her flukes, went down.
The boats now formed nearly a circle, and
each one prepared to give her a harpoon when
she came up, if there was an opportunity. As
we were waiting I chanced to look down into the
water by the siao of the boat, and could just dis
cern some object deep down. It rapidly grew
more distinct, and vas apparently rising to the
surface, but ere the wora of warning could be
given, she had risen under us, striking the bottom
of our frail boat a little forward of midships with
her head, knocking a hole through the thin bot
tom boards, and throwing the bow oarsman some
six or seven feet into the air. Fortunately, he
earns down into the stern sheets of the boat, where
we were all most unceremoniously piled by the
unusual motion o f our shattered craft. The whale
now settled a little, and the boat rested fairly on
the water, but commenced filling rapidly, and ere
we could thrust a coat or some loose garment
into the breach, she had shot ahead about her
lenzth and thrown a corner of her flukes up into
the Dow, and elevating that portion of the boat
to an angle of about thirty degrees, started off
with us at railroad speed.
We were promiscuously thrown into the stern
end of the boat, and the waer rushed over us
through the breach while a cloud of vapor and
foaming spray covered the boat. I must confess
that among us by this time there were some pale
lips and livid visages, or my visual organs deceived
me; although there was one among our number
who. I am inclined to believe, had no kind of
appreciation of danger and that solicitude for his
personal safety was something which he knew
nothing of. ven now, he was not lacking in
point of good humor and recklessness, for as we
swept by one of the boats, the crew of which
were struck with fear and astonishment at our
ringular and dangerous situation, he swung his
hat and shouted at the top of his voice.- "llcre
we go boys, homeward bound, free passage -jump
aboard r' This sally Lad the cflVct of breaking
tbe spell somewhat, although we dould not bring
ourselves to the belief that it was all a joke. - A
distance of a quarter of a mile or so, and our
journey was accomplished.
On letting us down, a sweep to the right and
left with her flukes, gave us nothing but the
fragments of a wreck to buoy us up from the
depths of the sea. Fortunately, she left us then,
for had she given one more with that powerful
weapon, some if not all of us, would then and
there have ended ourcareer. . She now turned to
her calf, which was dying from the effects of its
One of the boats hastened to our relief, and
took us aboard the ship ; in the meantime the
young whale died and sunk, and one of the
remaining boats succeeded in fastening to the
old one. After a severe struggle of three hours
she was made to spout blood which was soon
followed by the death-struggle, a point of no
small interest in the capture of whales.
Our prize was towed alongside the ship and
made fast with stout ropes, ready for dissection
on the morrow. Her length was about ninety
feet, and the flues from one corner to the other
about eighteen feet, with the other portions of
the body as large in proportion.
As we had furled the light sails and coiled up
the last rope, the sun had sunk again in the blue
waves of the sea of Japan. v
Ths Marriage Relation. The great secret is
to learn to bear with each other's failings ; not
to be blind to them that is either an impossibil
ity or a folly; we must see and feel them ; if we
do either, they are not evils to us, and there is
obviously no need of forbearance ; but to throw
the mantle of affection round them, concealing
them from each other's eyes ; to determine not to
let them chill the present evil, always with a view
to ultimate amendment. Surely it is not the per
fection, but the imperfection, of human character
that makes the strongest claim in love. AH the
world must approve, even enemies must admire
the good and the estimable in human nature. If
husband and wife estimate only that in each
which all must be constrained to value, what do
they more than others? It is infirmities of char
acter, imperfections of nature, that call for the
pitying sympathy, the tender compassion that
makes each the comforter, the monitor of tbe
other. Forbearance helps each to attain command
over themaves. Few are the creatures so utterly
evil as to abuse a generous confidence ; a calm
forbearance. Married persons should be pre
eminently friends, and fidelity ifi the great privi
lege of friendship. The forbearance here con
tended for is not weak and wicked indulgence of
each other's faults, but such a calm, tender ob
servance of them as excludes all harshness and
anger, and takes the best and gentlest methods of
pointing them out i : the full confidence of affec
tion. Whisper to a Bride.
Confidence ix One's Self. When a crisis
befalls you, and the emergency requires moral
courage and noble manhood to meet it, be equal
to the requirements of the moment, and ride su
perior to the obstacles in your pathl The uni
versal testimony of men whose experience exactly
coincides with yours, furnishes the consoling re
flection that difficulties must be ended by opposi
tion. There is no blessing equal to the possession
of a stout heart. The magnitude of the danger
requires nothing more than a greater effort than
ever at your hands. If you prove recreant in the
hour of trial, you are the worst of recreants, and
deserve no compassion. Be not disi.iayed or un
manned when you should be bold and daring, un
flinching and resolute. The cloud whose threat
ening murmurs you hear with fear and dread, is
pregnant with blessing, and the frown whose
sternness now makes you shudder and tremble,
will ere long be succeeded by a smile of bewitch
ing sweetness and benigDity. Then be strong and
manly, oppose equal forces to open difficulties,
keep a stiff upper lip, and trust ia Providence.
Greatness can only be achieved by those who are
tried. The condition of that achievement is con
fidence in one's self.
Choice or a Husband. We would recom
mend the following to our lady readers : If a
man wipes his feet on the door mat before coming
into the room, you may be sure he will make a
good, domestic husband. If a man puts his
handkerchief on his knees whilst taking his tea,
Jou may be sure he will be a prudent husband,
a the same way, always mistrust the man who
will not take the last piece of toast, but prefers
waiting for the next warm batch. It is not un
likely ne will make a greedy, selfish husband with
whom you will enjoy no " brown" at dinner, no
crust at tea, no peace whatever at home. The
man, my dears, who is careful about wrapping
himself up well before entering into the night
air, not frequently makes a good invalid husband,
that mostly stops at home, and is easily comforted
