A SHIPMASTER'S STORY ABOUT FLOD
GING. When I was nhout forty years of
ago 1 took commnnd of the ship
"Petersham." She was nu old craft,
nnd had seen full as much service as
she was capable of seeing with
safety. But her owners were will
ing to trust a Tnluablo cargo in her,
so 1 would uot refuse to trust my
self. "Wc were bound to Liverpool,
and nothing unusual happened until
about the eighth day out, when we
ran foul of a small iceberg, 'it was
early in the morning, before sunrise,
and not above six or eight feet of
ice was above the water, it having
nenrly all been melted in the warm
waters of the Gulf Stream. 1 did
not think wc had sustained much
injury, for the shock was light; but
1 was very angry, and gave the look
out a severe punishment, without,
stopping to inquire whether he could
have seen the berg in time to escape
My cabin boy was named Jack
"Withers. He was fourteen years of
age, and this was his first voyage. 1
had taken him from his widowed
mother, and promised her that 1
would sec him well treated that is,
if he behaved himself. Ho was a
bright, (ptick, intelligent lad. I
soon made myself believe he had an
awful disposition. I fancied that
he was the most stubborn piece of
humanity I had ever conic across.
1 had made up my mind he had
never been properly governed, and
resolved to break him in. 1 told
linn I'd curb his temper before I'd
done with him. In reply he told me
1 might kill him if I liked ; and I
Hogged him with the end of the
mizzen lop-gallant halliards tilt lie
could hardly stand. I asked him if
he'd got enough, and he told me 1
might Hog him more if I wished to.
J felt a strong inclination to throw
the hoy overboard, but at that mo
ment lie staggered back against the
mizzen-mastfroni absolute weakness,
and I left him to himself. When I
reasoned calmly about the boy's
disposition, I was forced to ac
knowledge that he was one of the
smartest and most intelligent and
faithful lads I had ever seen. "When
I asked him to do anything he would
be off like a rocket ; but when I
roughly ordered him to do it, then
came the disposition with which I
One day, when it was very near
noon, I spoke to him to bring up
my quadrant. He was looking over
the quarter-rail, and I knew he did
not hear me ; the next time I spoke
1 ripped out an oath, and intimated
if he did not move I'd help him.
"I didn't hear ye," he said with
an independent tone.
"No words," said I.
"I suppose I can speak," he re
torted, moving slowly towards the
His looks, words, and the slow,
careless manner in which he moved,
fired me in a moment, anil I grasp
ed him by the collar.
"Speak to mc again like that, and
I'll flog you within an incli of your
life," said I.
" You can flog away," he replied,
iirm as a rock.
And I did Hog him. I caught up
the end of a rope and beat him till
my arm fairly ached ; but he never
"How's that?" said I.
" There's a little more life in me
you'd better Hog it out," was the
And I beat him again. I beat
him till he sank from my hand
against the rail ; and I sent one" of
my other men for my quadrant.
When it came and I had adjusted it
for observation, I found that the sun
had already passed the meridian,
and that I was too late. This added
fuel to the fire of my madness, and,
quickly seizing the lad by the collar,
1 led him to the main hatchway and
had the hatch taken off. I then
thrust him down and swore I would
keep him there till his stubbornness
was broken. The hatch was then
put on, and I went into the cabin.
1 suffered a good deal that after
noon, not with any compunctions of
conscience for what I had done, but
with my own temper and bitterness.
It madcj mc mad to think that I
could not conquer that hoy that
I could not break down his cool,
"But I will do it," 1 said to
myself, " by the heavens above mo,
I will Btarve him into it, or he shall
die under the operation!"
After supper I went to the hatch
way and called out to him, but he
returned mc no answer. So I closed
tho hatch nnd went away. At ten
o'clock I went again, and again got
no answer. I might have thought
thut tho flogging had taken away his
senses, had not some of the men
assured me that they had heard him,
not an hour before, talkiug to him
self. I did not trouble him again
until morning. After breakfast 1
went to tho hatchway, and called
to hira once more. 1 heard nothing
from him, nor .could I see him I
had not seen him since I put him
down there. I called out several
times, but ho would make no reply-
yet the very same men told mc they
had heard him talking that very
morning. IIo seemed to be calling
on them for help, but ho would not
ask for mc. I meant to break him
into it. " He'll beg before he'll
starve," I thought, and so deter
mined to let him stay there. I sup
posed ho had crawled forward to tho
forecastle bulkhead, in order to
make the sailors hear him. Some of
the men asked leave to go down and
look for him, but I refused, and
threatened to punish the first man
that dared to go down.
At noon I went again, and as he
did not answer mc this time, 1 re
solved that ho should come to the
hatchway and ask for mc ore I went
any more. The day passed mvnj',
and when evening came I began to
be startled. I thought of the many
good qualities tho boy had, and of
his widowed mother. He had been
in the hold thirty-six hours, and all
of forty hours without food or drink.
He must be too weak to cry out
now. It was hard for mc to give
up, but if he died there from actual
starvation, it might go harder with
mc still. So at length I made up
my mind to go and sec him. It was
not quite sundown when 1 had the
hatch taken off and 1 jumped down
upon the boxes alone.
A little way forward I saw a space
where Jack might easily have gone
down, and to this point 1 crawled on
my hands and knees. I called out
there, but could get no answer. A
short distance further was a wide
space, which I had entirely forgot
ten, but which 1 now remembered
had been left open on account of a
break in the flooring of the hold,
which would let anything that might
have been stored there rest directly
on the thin planking of the ship.
To this place I made my way, and
looked down. I heard the splash
ing of water, and thought I could
detect a sound like the incoming of
a tiny jet or stream. At first I could
see nothing, but as soon as I became
used to the dim light, 1 could dis
tinmiish the faint outlines of the
boy at some distance below me. lie
seemed to be sitting on the broken
floor, with his feet stretched out
against a cask. I called out to him,
and thought he looked up.
"Jack, arc you there?"
And he answered mc in a faint,
weary tone :
"Yes, help mc! For heaven's
sake help me ! Bring men and bring
a lantern the ship has sprung a
1 hesitated, and he added, in a
more eager tone :
"Make haste! I will try and hold
it till you come back."
I waited to hear no more, but
hurried on deck ns soon as possible,
and returned with a lantern and
three men. I leaped down beside
the boy and could scarcely believe
my own senses. Three of the tim
bers were completely worm-eaten to
the very heart, and one of the outer
planks had been broken, and would
burst in 'any moment the boy might
leave it, whose feet were braced
against the plank before him. Half
a dozen little jets of water were
streaming in about him, and he was
wet to the skin. I saw the plank
must burst the moment tho strain
was removed from it, so I made the
men brace themselves against it be
fore I lifted him up. Other men
were called down, with planks,
spikes, and adzes, and with much
care and trouble wc finally succeed
ed in stopping the leak and averting
The plank which had been stovo
in was six feet long by eight inches
wide, and would let in a stream of
water of that capacity. It would
have been beyond our reach long
before wc could have discovered it,
and would have sunk us in a very
short time. I knew it must be where
the iceberg struck us.
Jack Withers was taken to the
cabin, and there he managed to tell
his story. Shortly after I put him
in tjic hold ho crawled forward, and
when he became used to the dim
glimmer that came through tho dead
lights, he looked around for a snug
place in which to lie, for his limbs
were very sore. He went to sleep,
and when he awoke he heard a faint
sound, like water streaming through
a small hole. He went to the open
place in the cargo and looked down,
and was sure that ho saw a small
jet of water springing up through
tho ship's bottom. He leaped down,
and in a few moments found that the
timbers had given wholly away, and
that the stream was increasing in
size. He placed his hand upon tho
plank, and found it broken, and dis
covered that the pressure of the
water without was forcing it inward.
He had sense enough to sco that if
it gained an inch more it must all
go, and the ship bo lost and perhaps
all hands perish. And he saw, too,
that if he could keep the broken
plank in its place he might stop the
incoming flood. So he sat himself
upon it and braced his feet against
the cask, and then called for help.
But ho was too far away so low
down, with such a mass of cargo
about him, that his voice scarcely
reached other ears than his own.
Some of the men heard him, but
thought he was talking to himself.
And there he sat, with his feet
braced, for four-and-tweaty dreary
hours, with the wUcf epurting nil
over htm, and drenching him to the
Very skin. IIo had several times
thought of going to the hatchway
and calling for help ; but ho knew
that the broken plank would bo
forced in if ho left it, for ho could
feci it heavy beneath him ; his limbs
were racked with pain, hut ho would
not give up. I asked hiin if he would
not have given up if I hnd not come
as 1 did. Ho answered that ho
would not have done it while there
was life in him. Ho said ho thought
not of himself he was ready to
die hut he would save the rest if
he could; and ho had saved us,
surely saved us all from a watery
Tho boy lay sick almost unto
dcatli ; but I nursed him with my
own hands nursed him all through
his delirium ; and when his reason
returned and he could sit up and
talk, I bowed myself before him,
and humbly asked his pardon for all
the wrong I had done him. He
threw his arms around my neck and
told mo if I would be good to him
he would never give causo of offense ;
he added as he sat up again, "I am
not a coward I could not be a dog."
1 never forgot those words ; and
from that hour 1 never struck a
blow on hoard my ship. I make my
men feel that they arc men, that I
so regard them, and that I wish to
make them as comfortable and happy
as possible ; and I have not failed to
gain their lespect and confidence.
I give no undue license, but make
my crews feel that they have a
friend and superior in the same per
son. For nine years I have sailed
in three different ships with the
same crew. A man could not be
hired to leave me, save for an officer's
berth. And Jack Withers remained
with mc thirteen years. He was my
cabin boy; one of my foremost
hands ; my second mate ; and the
last time he sailed with me he re
fused the command of a new bark.

Venture is a rich chestnut color, 1C hands high, and weighs about 1,100 lbs.
In structure he is the picture of great muscular power, and in appearance, tem
perament and disposition, ho is faultless. Full of fire and gentleness, he is with
out speck or blemish. As a stock horse he is having extraordinary success ; his
numerous progeny, both in California and in this country, attest this fact, several
of them being able to trot low down, and one of his daughters (Venus) can trot
in 2.23. Venus is also the dam of Transit, which is said to be the most promising
two-year-old in California. He trotted a mile last season, as a yearling, in 2.45.

In offering the services of this horse to the public I make one claim for him,
which is that he is tho highest bred trotting stallion in the world, living or dead,
and in support of this claim I am willing to submit it to any authority that can be
obtained, and if he is not, then I will foifeit all my claims to horse knowledge. It
will be seen that Ids pedigree represents a union of the purest blood of the English
and American thoroughbred racer, one of his grand dams, as also one of bis great
giand dams, being imported from England to the United States. When Venture
was on the turf, about eight years ago, he was at that time the sensational horso of
tho Pacific Coast, and the sporting papers in the East, that weic always so much
opposed to running blood in tho trotter, commenced picking away at his pedigree,
trying to find a coid cross in it, at the same time declaring that it was simply im
possible for a strictly thoroughbred horse to trot as fast as he was then trotting;
but at last they had to give it up, and admitted tho fact that he twas a strictly
thoroughbred horse, but declared hlin a phenomenon, and were unable to account
for his great speed at the trotting falt. But the fame of his sire, old Belmont, is
inmost, wona-wiue, aim isis a weu-unown iact ms uioou mcKcu ucttcr Willi ine
trotting families than that of any other thoroughbred horse ever known, as, in
addition to. Venture, two other thoroughbred sons of his, Capt. "Webster and Owen
Dale, were said to have possessed great speed at the trot. Besides these, he sired
the dams of Belle Echo, 2:20; Flora Shepherd, 2:30; Monarch. 2:28; Nelly
Patclten, 2 :27iii Rustic, 2:30; which is a showing that a great many of tho best
trotting bred horses cannot equal. Mr. Patrick Parrel 1, who is one of the most
experienced drivers on tho Pacific Coait, told mo the last time that I saw him, that
Venture was tho fastest trotter that he ever pulled a lino over, and that if his
temper had not been soured in his youtli by bad handling, lie believed thnt he
would have equaled, if not surpassed, all tho records ever made, and that he could
show a two-minute gait with hun to a wagon, but in company lie would become
wild, on account of his hot blood, and was often beaten by horses that could hardly
i tin as fast as ho could trot. His record of a:27,fc which was no measure of his
speed, was made at tho Oakland track in 1877, in a race which ho Avon, bcatlug
Alexander, Gus, General Reno and Billy Hayward, this being his last publlu
It is thought by somo people that an aged horeo is not as good a producer as a
young one, but no greater mistake could possibly be made. Indeed, tho opposite
is claimed by many large breeders, and Instances are so numerous of horses siring
their best foals at an advanced ago that the above theory has long ago been ex
ploded, Imported Dlomed was twenty-seven years old when he sired Sir Arohy,
his best son ; Bouido Scotland, who died only a few years ago, sired Luke Ulack
burn and George Kinney, by far tho best of his get, after he was twenty-live; Im
ported Leamington siied Iroquois, his best son, tho htct year that ho lived, at
twenty-live. Among ti otters may bo mentioned Volunteer, the shu of St. Jullen,
who is thirty-oiio years old this spring, and is said to be as lively and vigorous as
ho ever was, and his young foals as piomlslng as any that ho ever got. Old Ha
miltouian died in March, 1S70, aged twenty-seven years, but sired two foals the
last days of his life, and one of them, called Hamiltouiau's last, made a trotting
recoid of 2 :U."4 the past season, and tho other one is said to bo equally as fast,
"With lheo facts before us, It is plain that tho ago of a horse lias nothing to do
with his success as a sire. I think myself that there is a gieat deal in tho condi
tion that a horso is kept, for an animal that is well-fed and cared for, 1th plenty
of exercise, will beget better foals than one that Is turned loo-e and never stable'd
or fed grain.
Venture is twenty-two years old this spring, and with I ho oato that I intend
to give him, 1 expect him to sire better foals than he ever has before. He Is a
rematkably sure breeder. Mr, Campbell assures mo that ho has never bred a
maro to him yet that did not produce a toal, and his many beautiful coll.-,, now on
Mr. C.'s ranch, aio woith a long journey to see; and now as ho is to be kept so
convenient to tho general public, no ono owning a good niaie should bo so blind to
their own interest as to neglect the oppoitunity of obtaining his blood while they
havo tho chance.
For any additional particulars apply at Punchbowl and Queen streets.
