SATURDAY, JULY 24, 188G.
A TERRIBLE NIGHT AT SEA.
AN OLD YAllN LAID INTO SEW HOl'K.
I have lend strntigc things of tlio vasty
And of dangers upon the sen,
But 1 once heard a tale of ti leak-spring-ing
That made an Impression on mu.
And 1 11 tell you this tale ns 'twas tolp
By a weather-worn truthful old Tar
His nou badly scraped, nnd his eyes
Through nu accident, crossing the bar.
The old man began by removing n quid
From between his back jaw and his
'With a hitch at his pants, as Salts do
ere they dance,
And a 'back-handed wipe at his
It was on the good ship Incubus,
All in the China seas,
With our helm a-lee, and our horse
We sailed before the breeze.
The .oi was calm, and the wind was
As the sun in his grandeur set;
But n tierce typhoon, with the rising
Wrought a change I shall ne'er forget.
In far le time than it takes to tell,
The, waves overleaped our truck.
And foic audaft, on our shivering craft,
The billows were running a-muck.
Our sails w ere toru Into tatters and rags,
Not a stitch was left on the yards ;
And the started elects of the bobstay
Were w allied o'er the after-guards.
Our tafrail stove in the capstan bead,
Crushing .liminy the Duck Tender's
And a leu main brace struck the Third
And bruised it ns black as soot.
Heart-rendering bob, from the pigs
Who felt that their ends were nigh.
Lent their piercing aid to the folks that
And vied with thu Storm Fiend's cry.
The Sea Nymphs shrieked and the Mer
As they skipped o'er the surging
Through tiie coal-black gloom, came
thu stuucl boom,
Like a moan from deep watery
Huge Miarki began gnawing our plank
Each bunt upon human slaughter,
Till from further attack thev were
By our Captain's noble daughter.
Willi soft white hands that brave young
Kept the coppers hot through the
And, with aim so true, scalding water
Depriving the sharks of sight!
The ballled monsters lied in pain,
By (lint slender angel defied
But a half hour more, and their thirst
Would sure have been satisfied.
The wave played high, and the sea
The Storm King with .lack made
The seablrds screeched, and the dol
And the lightning darted flame.
And 'twas Captain Towliue who thus
To our Mate, on the liiizzcn hatch,
"Whilst our Boeen bold, in the lower
Was winding Ids larboard watch:
'How heads our ill-starred ship to
night, How heads our fated craft?"
"The heads due East, half West by
With the binnacle hard a-bafti"
"Then haul the binnacle hard a-poit,
And board the mizzcu tack;
Breast off the clouds from tlio futtoek
Or you'll have the ship a-back!
"And what does tlie.Sextant indicate,
And how does tho Quadrant standi"'
"The Quadrant points to the freezing
And thu Sextant has lost a hand!"
"Ah, then, if the Sextant lias lost a
And thu Quadrant has sunk so low,
All our flush and bonus, down to Davy
On this dreadful night will go!
"Come, lay nloft on the gnrboard
Unreuve the spanker boom;
Bend a studding-sail ou the. martin
gale, To give her weather room !
"All bauds stand by to skip aloft,
And send down every spar;
Now, bear a hand, or soon you'll stand.
Before the Judgment Bar! l
"And, Bosen, what water have you
Down there in our leaky craft?"
"Four feet, all told, in tiie forward hold,
And fresh leaks fore and aft!"
"Sailors, quick, collar your marline
spikes, And each grab a belaying-pln;
Come, stir your stumps, and spike tlio
Or more will lie coming In!"
"We stirred our stumps, wo spiked tlio
Wu spliced the mizzcu brace,
We woiked with a will, for hours, but
Tho water kept gaining apace.
Wo bored a hole clear through tho keel,
To let the water out,
But, strnngu to say, to our great dismay,
The water in did spout,
Tho sharks had gnawed our poor ship's
Till she was merely a shell,
And oft through tho gloom came the
Willi the sounds of a funeral bell,
We triced tlio cat-heads to tlio truck,
To glvo the bowsprit case;
We bent a sail, on the weather rail,
To break tlio blenching sens.
Wo swabbed and wiped the deadeyes
Wo cleared the forward chains,
Wo lashed tlio lead to tho llguro-head,
And marled the dolphin grains.
Wo ran tlio gang-plank out astern,
'o frcsh-pltchcd every seam,
W'o doused tlio glim of the side-lights
Jiut Qt liono there was not u KlCftlu.
Wo lashed the ring-bolts to tho deck,
And hauled tho windlass oft,
Some bad men swore, nnd ripped nnd
But no man smiled or chaffed.
Then was heard a prayer from our pale
face Cook :
"Great Father, Thy mercy I crave
1 have wives to support In full many n
And 1 pray that my life You save."
The cry of "A JonnhP rose fore nnd
And poor Slushy was cast to the
But the goodly innn's prayer was ans
And n Bible whnio boro him safe
My doubts nbout "Jonahs" all vanished
When Slushy was thrown iu tho sea.
For, strange to relate, tho storm did
And an Island nppenred on our lee!
Yet still we were hopeless, with refuge
For wu stood on a sinking wreck
Fallen rigging nnd spars, and loose
Formed a horrible chaos on deck.
Handspikes were run through the soub-ber-liolcs,
To keep us ou high-water mark;
But nil was no use for tlio beam-ends
And could not be llxed In the dark.
The rigmarron fouled with tho l udder,
And the helm refused to obey.
And the gurgling leaks in tiie lee fore
To hi of denth cro the break of day.
Exhausted we were, but wu worked our
To keep our bravo ship on her keel,
When a horrible yell ou our strained
From thusailorwhostondntthc wheel.
The bilge water down in tho Lazaretto
Had loosened the transom beam,
When the stanchions broke, ns from
And started each quarter seam.
Our Captain gave up iu his wild de
spair, And, embracing Ids child, lit; said:
"He who saves her life if he have no
That bravo man my daughter will
It was Jhen that our quiet young Second
Came forward and tilled us w lth awe
The poor Second Mute, whom bad sailors
And cruty old Captains jaw.
He lifted an anchor upon bis back,
And boldly sprang into thu main;
Through foam and through spray did he
cleave his may,
yinking deep and then rUing again!
Through the foam and thu spray, a full
That lig anchor stoutly he bore.
Until safely at last he Iniit buried it fast,
And we quickly were warped nfe
It ain't much of a feat to make brags
Still 'twas something quite ticklish to
And you'd hardly believe a man's looks
That the brave Second Mate, Sir, was
And this was the tale as 'twas told to
By that battered and shattered old sou
of the sea,
And I envied the fame of that poor
Whom mean captains jawandbad sailoin
For lie was not like some of the smai t-
ies I've seen,
Who would lie to a landsman because
ho was green !
Mis. Editok: Since wrltting the fore
going, 1 have been credibly informed
that our esteemed friend, Captain Mar
chant, was a passenger on tho ship
Incubus at thu timu the thrilling incident
roughly depicted above occurred, and
from that gentleman 1 have no doubt

SIXTY EIGHTH DAY CONTINUED.
Fuiuay, July Sflrd.
The committee resumed at 1 :35.
Rep. Kaulukou referred to the ar
gument of Noble Bishop the other
day, that the finances nt home
should be put in it satisfactory con
dition before large expenditures
abroad. This was not the course
pcrsued by tlio American Hoard of
Missions, that sent missionaries
here while there was ample scope
for mission work at home; or by
the religious societies in these islands
when they sent missionaries to Hie
neighboring groups, lie moved to
amend the item to S3,0Q0.
Hep. Knliin spoke at length
against tiie item. The Government
party were continually harping on
the Japanese as the only practical
result of the foreign policy. lie
was not a so-called "missionary"
himself, lint he reminded the lion,
member for Ililothathe owed every
thing to the missionary party. It
had been decided at a Government
caucus, he said, to carry the item at
Hep. ICaulianc argued that the
Ministry should not gel this money,
because they failed to define pre
cisely thu objects of its expenditure.
Hep. Brown withdrew his motion
of tlio other day, to stride out thu
item, and would support the amend
ment for 810,000. Bills were duo lor
entertaining the Sw cdisli Prince and
the Japanese embassy and would
have to lie paid.
Hep. Knumununo spoke of the
great benclit to the kingdom from
the visit of Queen Kmina to Kngland
and the tour of King kulakauu
round the world. Foreign nii-sioiis
were useful, and this item should
puss. He referred to the mission
of Hiehards, that secured the recog
nition of the kingdom's independ
ence by England, France and Ame
rica. He suggested facetiously
that Hep. Dole should be sent on
the Samoan mission, as a good re
presentative of the Hawaiian-born
people, but if either Messrs. Dole,
Castle, Brown, Thurston or Kalun
were sent S!10,000 would be too
small. lie thought Noble S. Pinker
must have made a good impression
on the ladies at New Orleans and
Hep. Thurston addressed the
house in Hawaiian against the item
in the bill, arguing that the past pe
riod's expenditure on foreign mis
sions had been of little value to the
country, lie favored the item's
passage at $G,000.
Hep. Dole spoke of the South Sea
expedition of 1882, which lie regard
ed as an attempt at carrying out
the present policy of the Govern
ment lcgarding lhose islands. The
commissioners had been furnished
Hags, instructions, etc., and brought
back letters fiom some of the na
tive cliiefs. He read two of the
letters to show that the writers had
evidently been furnished with rcadj'
made communications, besides hav
ing extravagant views of the impor
tance and power of Hawaii. That
mission's vessel was wrecked, which
was omuious of the fate of the for
eign policy of tlii.s Government.
Minister Gibson was sorry to sec
a gentleman of the intelligence of
the member for Liliuu endeavor to
mislead the house in the manner lie
had done. In the first place, he
would represent that those two
letters were probably prepared on
board the Julia. These letters were
prepared in 1882, and Captain Tripp
went in 1881. Kven admitting that
it wns so, Captain Tripp took on
board Here an interpreter, Mr. Ran
dolph, who wont with him from
island to .island. One letter was
dated July 2ilh, the other August
1st. The same interpreter having
prepared botli letters, it was reason
able to suppose that they should be
similar; but Lcleo, the sou of a resi
dent on Lanai, an old missionary,
attested to the truth of these letters.
The matter before them was Hie con
sideration of the item for foreign
missions, and the foreign policy of
the Government was under consider
ation in regard to what was aimed at
in the future. In regard to the past
it must relate to immigration as one
of tho results of diplomatic action of
the Government. While the Gov
ernment could not' claim the credit
of Portuguese immigration, ifcould
claim credit for having vigorously
pushed it. Under that policy about
51,000 Portuguese and a, 000 Japan
ese, or about 12,000 people, had
been added to tho population. This
had resulted in an increase of $00,
000 per annum in taxes. Iu 1881
tlio exports wcio valued at 8G,8.,),,),
1110, and In 188f, 88,058,003, an in
crease of more titan 82,000,000.
The productive power of the country
was increased through its diplomatic
Hep, Thurston How do you ac
count for tho fact that only glfi0,2.r
wcro spent last period?
Minister Gibson was not referring
particularly to tho last period, but
to the general result. Legislators
were not always considering tlio
exact question of liquid pro quo
the immediate result of diplomatic
action. Government had a duty in
taking part iu international events
without invitation. For instance,
when the Emperor of Russia was
crowned, the Great Powers sent
their Ambassadors, This kingdom
ventured to send a representative,
