HONOLULU, H. I.,, MONDAY, DECEMBER 24, 18&(.
.f. . SYEPT INTO THE SEA.
'.IIamkak (N. S.), Scpl. 18. A
talc of terrible suffering is told by
Captain Gnsston hud three seamen,
survivors of the Uritish bark llritau
nia, which was wrecked off Sable
Island Monday. The Britannia sailed
from Marant Bay, Jamaica, for
Montreal August 10th, with a cargo
, of sugar and rum. She withstood
safely considerable bad weather, but
at one o'clock Monday morning
grounded oh the bar off the island
in avoiding an iceberg. "With alt
their boats gone, the crew were
obliged to stay oivtlic wreck, where
they remained until Tuesday evening.
Then the ship began to break up,
and a raft was made. By dark, the
crew of twelve and the captain's
wife and four children had boarded
it. The sea' was' running high and
they were in' great danger. As Cap
tain Gasston was at ono side, en
deavoring to strengthen their sup
port, a sea swept over them and ear
ricd "all into the water. The captain
and eight jmen regained . the raft
"Two of tTiochililrcn, aged six months
and three years respectively, were
pulled out, but died in their father's
arms from fright and exposure. The
""steward was tied to the planks for
safety,, but died there, the water con
tinually wasliing over him. Shortly
after, another sea carried off three
others,, who failed to regain the raft.
Efforts find' been made to keep the
raft alongside the Britannia, but at
. nine .o'clock it broke away. At day
break Captain Gasston and the four
'others' who had survived the'-n'ight,
found themselves to be about three
riiiles'from Stable Island. At nine
o'clock another seaman was washed,
overboard. At ten o'clock the four
survivors were rescued by a boat
v, from-shore, and brought here by the
steamer jN.ewheld. s .

"We had company at dinner to
day," said the Ba$ Boy, "and pa is
always in his element when we have
company. He pridcs.hiniself on his
carving. "We iitid a Wist of beef,
and before it went bnJie table I
took the steel that pa sharpens the
carving-knife "onY arid made tyo holes'
- right through the roast, audhen I
( took a rawhide '(whip that pa basted
inn with once, cut it in two. and rim
pieces of the rawhide in the holes of
the beef. Pa began carving with a
smile, and asked the minister if ho
would have his beef rare, or an out
side piece. He was bearing gently
on the carving-knife Avlien the knife
struck the 'rawhide, and it'wouldn't
go any farther. Pa smiled, and said
he guessed he had struck a barbed
l ' ''"wire fence, and he turned thcToast
around and cut again, and he struck
the rawhide. The minister drummed
ivitli iris : fork and1 spoke to, maraud
said, 'We had a splendid mcetingr

face, and he said some words that K
would sound better in a brewery, and
he tried to gonge off some meat, but
'it wouldn't conic, and the minister
said: . flifotherj ' you., seem to be
having a. monkey and a parrot time
with that roast,' and that made pa
I mad, and he said he would carve his
' own meat without any sky pilot's
interference,' mid ma said :, 'Why, pa,
you should not be impudent,'
aud pa said he could whip the
butcher that sold him that piece of
, work-ox, and he sent the beef out to
.kitchen 'and the company ate cold
liver. The girl set the. meat in the
ice-chest, and pretty soon I went
down cellar, 'cause I didn't like cold
livor, and pulled out the rawhide,
and I gave the rest to that lame dog
you see mo hnve here a spell ago.
