PERILS OP THE SEA.
It will bo very interesting to our
readers to learn of the dangers of
the Bcas that n llonoluluan has
undergone. Col. Geo. Macfarlane,
on his return fiom his mission to
London, had a severe passage across
the Atlantic. He left Qucenstown
in the Cnnard liner Scrvia, on Feb.
10th. The day before leaving
Qucenstown the N. Y. Hcruhl had
predicted a heavy storm, and some
little anxiety was felt concerning it.
Nevertheless, he cinbaiked. (It
may be as well to give here some of
the dimensions of the Servia, so that
the full force of the danger may be
adequately understood). The Ser
via is 8000 tons, 10,000 horse power,
ii.lO feet long, and 54 feet beam.
During the night of the 13th, a
hurricane broke over them and blew
for eight hours. "When the wind
nbatcd the seas broke over them con
tinually, and at S a. m. on the 11th,
the Captain told them to prepare for
The boats were being carried
away, and the decks were swept
clear ever' minute. Tliu captain's
bridge, which is 55 feet above water
level in an ordinary sea, was carried off
as clean as if it had been sawed off,
and the funnels were flattened to
gether, although made of half-inch
iron. One time a watch of 20 men
were washed off their feet, but the
wave washed them inboard again.
The water came through the venti
lators and flooded the cabin for 8
hours. At 2 p.m. the fury of the gale
was over, the' were out of danger.
They finally arrived in New York,
after a 12 days' passage, being 3
days overdue. There were then 1 1
other steamers overdue, some of
them as much as two weeks. It was
in this storm the Glamorgan found
ered. When they arrived in New
York the rigging and masts were
covered with ice for 00 feet, and the
steamer looked old and ddapulatcd
from the rough usage it had under
gone. SHIPPING NOTES.

As the Swiflsurc's steam launch
was towing back the hist load of
visitois on Sunday afternoon it was
found the propeller wouldn't work.
A Hawaiian visitor jumped over
board and found a rope wound
round it several times. He cut this
through, and coining to the surface
was taken into the boat again. Just

Ox Sunday night Mr. Cruzim
made an announcement to which, we
think, every publicity should be
given. On Thursday night the usual
monthly social will be held, but on
this occasion it will take the form of
a lecture by himself, entitled "Kings
of Men ; or, Success in Life." Con
versation, &c, afterwards. "We
trust a large audience will be there
to enjoy the beauties of the lecture.
Oirit esteemed contemporary, the
Saturday Press, came out last week
under the guidance of a new hand,
Mr. K. S. Smith. Mr. Smith is from
San Francisco, where he has been
for some lime in the profession.
Wo welcome him to our journalistic
ranks here ; for, if first impressions
arc right he will show himself a
generous friend or an able enemy,
as occasion requires.
Just before the departure of the
steamer we came across an example
of honesty which deserves to be re
corded. A gentleman, who was go
ing away on the steamer, came up
to us and paid his arrears of sub
scription, remarking that he had de
rived such benefit from the paper
while here, that it would be unfair
to go without paying for it. As we
were totally unaware that he had
been a subscriber or was owing any
thing, this was the more gratifying
to us, and wo shall remember him if
he ever returns.

London Mai ch 10. The Times,
in an article obviously based on
olliciul information, says that in

League in tho immediate patronage
of crime, and pcihaps establish a
connection between it and the In
vineibles. Egau's flight is believed
to be due to a diead of this hibt
danger. Sundry prominent Land
League! s am expected to follow
him. The Ti i cs plainly points to
l'arncll and other niembeis of Parlia
ment as probably included in the
presumption of guilt afforded by
Egan's flight, a. pioumption involv
ing the whole organization of the
Land League and every one of its
authorities. In the Commons,
