SATURDAY. APRIL 30. 1887.
FROM L0N00II TO SVD11EY, IB65-80.
IlV A ship's onicim.
Probably tlio most pleasurable
pari of a seaman's life, is the time
he spends on short'. This may
hcem an anomaly, but it Is a fact,
nevertheless. Hut it often happens
that ti few months at sea may bo
pleasantly anil piolllably employed.
This was' my experience at any rate.
Jn tlio month of November, 18(!i, I
was necond ofllccr of (ho tea clipper
Voting I.ochlnvar, ono of the c.v
tremu clippera that were built in
those days for thu special purpose
of convoying' the now season's teas
from China to Loudon. She was
7l'() tons register and carried a com
plement of forty hands, all told, a
number deemed stilllcicnl to man
three ships of her size of the present
day. All tea clippers of those days
carried largo crows; thoy were
heavily rigged and spread an enor
mous amount of canvas.
The Young Loehinvar had made
her maiden voyage to China and
back, and had obtained the reputa
tion of n fast sailer. Sho had turned
out her cargo of tea in splendid con
dition, and was lying in tlio East
India docks, Loudon, preparatory
to loading again for tho East. To
my surprise, one morning, T found
her Hying the black ball ilag of
Messrs. James Dailies & Co., with a
huge poster on -her gangway an
nouncing that she was on the bcrlii
for Sydney, N. S. XV., the cabins
required to be somewhat altered in
order to make the nccossary arrange
ments for passengers. Tho work
was quickly accomplished and in
less than a fortnight wo were haul
ing out of the dock and ready to be
towed to sea.
Tlio scene of a passenger ship
bound to Australia leaving the
docks, is a sight never to bo for
gotten. On tho pier heads, stand
uncles and aunts, cousins and sis
ters, come to bid a last farewell to
those who are hound to the Anti
podes. Tho weeping and wailing
on botli sides is sullicicnt to melt
the heart of a Trojan. Amongst
those on board are unvariably to be
found, the young bride and bride
groom, tho wife in search of her
runaway husband, the old married
couple going to join there adven
turous sons, and the poor curate
with a wifo and a large family going
in search of their daily bread. Of
such was tho few who sought to
reach Australia by the Young
Loehinvar. Tho uigboat having
hooked on, and the order to turn
ahead being given, the passengers
and there fiiends were parted with
out further ceremony. A few wav
ing handkerchiefs were tho last
signs of a limit adieu. With a
stiong ebtr-tidc, Gravescnd was soon
reached and passed, and before
nightfall the Downs were in sight,
about this time the wind was piping
up from tho westward, but the ves
sel's course was continued onwaul
in spite of the increasing gale.
About fifty ships lay in Downs,
weather bound, but at the request
of our anxious and pushing cap
tain, tho pilot continued his course
seaward with the tugboat still
ahead. After passing tho Straits of
Dover, it now being dark, sail was
made and t)e tow-line hauled in.
Tho passengers had long sought
their quarters below, but the crew
continued to work tho ship in those
narrow waters throughout tho whole
of that teirible night. Terrible, it
was in more senses than one, the
wind howling from tlio westward,
while the gallant ship under reefed
upper topsails, nobly fought her
way inch by inch, tlio pilot hoping
to reach wider sea-room before day
light. Ho was persevering, and no
doubt in his own mind, thought he
,wns doing tho correct tiling, but
wliat nuout tlie poor ciow who were
beginning to feel worn out, as nny
human being would do after the
racketing that pilot gave them.
When daylight broko the following
morning, the vessel was abreast
of Dcaohy Head, but the increas
ing head wind prevented her from
making further headway to tho
westward. Each member of that
crow prayed within his own heart
that the pilot would think better of
it and turn back, as further progress
onward seemed impossible. Tho
channel pilot was at last moved,
and he complied with tlio entreaties
of tlio crow to keek rcfugo in the
Downs. Tho vessel's courso was
changed, and in a few hours sho
was safely anchored with ninety
fathoms of chain. A few of tlio
emigrants have came up and had a
look around, wondering whero they
had been and whero thoy were.
Their several appearances indicated
a slight chango in the condition of
their stoinacliH, and as the vessel
now rode quietly at anchor in
comparatively smooth water, tlioy
thought all theiu troubles were
Jn two or three days tho galo was
over, and the anchor was ouco
more weighed and the voyage pur
sued. "With fine weather vvu soon
sped down the channel and when off
llB Islo of Wight, signals were
made for a pilot-boat to tako our
pilot off. It was at this particular
moment that a happy thought
occurred to ono of our young
lady piissongers, tho one who was
In search of her runaway husband,
that sho had gono far enough in that
direction. She begged of l'10 caP
lain lo "allow her to go on shore
with tho pilot, pleading as nn excuse
that her husband was a good-for-nothing
fellow, nnd was not worthy
of the agony sho had suffered dur
ing the past forty-eight hours. She
nlso added that there wore plenty
nioro husbands to be got in the
ncighboiliood of her little home at
Kensington. All of her entreaties,
however, were of no avail. The
pilot left the shij), whilst tho poor
young wife buried herself in Icars
at being compelled to pursue her
journey. Nothiug was seen of her
for n few days, but when fine
weather set in, she forgot her
troubles nnd looked as charming as
shu possibly could. For several
days nothing was &ecn of tho bulk
of the passengers, but when run
ning down the North-cast trades,
and warmer weather had set In,
tlioy nil came on deck lo breath tho
pure fresh air. That common
enemy to mankind seasickness
had been conquered for the time
being. It was whilst in this belt of
fine weather that Christmas Day
came around. An awning was
spread over the quarter deck, and
passengers and crew joined in a
grand chorus 1
"Hark the Herald Angel" slug,
Olory to the new-born King.''
Nothing occurred to mar the hap
piness of nil on board that day, and
each and everyone confessed to
having spent a "Happy Christmas."
Tlio Equator was crossed in due
course, and the old time custom of
interviewing Neptune, was intro
duced, but without any of its un
Doforc we had crossed the South
east trades, I had made the acquain
tance of all tho lady cabin passen
gers, and began to feel that life at
sea with pleasant company on board
is not such a bug-bear as one's
nautical ancestors would make you
believe. The passengers had all
gained their sea legs, and it was
not an uufrcqucnt scene to see the
young ladies promenading the poop
deck like nn ofllccr on watch. Often
whilst J have been keeping first
watch from 8 to 12 o'clock in tlio
evening, 1 have found the time fly
by, so pleasantly, that I would will
ingly have stood the watch over
The voyage, however, was not
entirely devoid of sad scenes, ono
of which is so strongly impressed
on my mind that I coiitidcr it worth
relating. Jt was while runniug
down tho Easting, tho wind blowing
strongly from the South-west, the fore
lop-gallant sail split. Orders were
nt once given for it to be sent down
and a new sail to be bent. No time
was lost in carrying out the skipper's
orders, but as the work of bending
tho new sail did not come up to the
boatswain's idea of how such n job
should be done, ho took occasion to
beiale tho tho sailors engaged in
the job. He finally went up aloft
to see what all tlio delay was
about. On stepping from the
rigging on to the topgallant yard he
over balanced himself and fell head
foremost into the 6ca. The vessel
was rounded to, at great risk, and a
boat lowered, but the body was
never afterwards seen. This sad
affair cast a great gloom over the
whole ship's company. The de
ceased had been a great favorite
with bofh passengers and crew, and
his sudden loss was a severe blow.
He was a largo hearted Dritish
sailor of the true stamp, and left a
young wife to mourn his loss. Willi
fair wind and favorable weather,
Sydney Heads were sighted on the
seventy-fifth day after leaving Lon
don. The passengers were ecstacies
somo at reaching their old homo,
and others at finding n now home
for their future life. After enter
ing tho port in tow of the tug boat
Hreadulbanc, no time was lost by
the passengers in making prepara
tions to land. In less than an hour
after tho anchor was let go, they
had all gone. It was then that a
fccljpg of solitude pervaded tlio
after part of that vessel. Those
with whom we had been in daily
contact for a period of two months
and a half, with whom mutual
Platonic attachments had been made,
had gono from our gaze for ever
no, not for ever, because one or two
of the young ladies came back when
the vessel was alongside of tip Cir
cular quay, to renew tho too brief
acquaintance. The voyage was
ended, however, and your humble
servant's only desire was to bo trans
ported to London and sail tho voy
The good ship's days, as well as
the happy voyage to the Colonics
which I have attempted to relate,
were also near at end. Within two
months after leaving Sydney the
Young Loehinvar was lost in the
China Seas, tho crew having a mira
culous escape from sudden death,
Fortune, however, smiled upon
tlioiu for tho time, nnd on reaching
