water boil, all the while snapping its lice
jaws and showing its rows of saw-like
teeth, it was a horrid object, aad consti
tuted a scSeient practical argument to de
ter me from attempting to swim on shore,
had I entertained the thoaght which I
bad Dot. Hanled cp afoegside. with its
head oat of water, three casket baHs were
vd in ssccessioa down its osea throat
aad then it vras bouted in on decked est
open. Id iu paench, cilod; oUier ci&U
ters, iras found tie ehH of a large turtle,
and the Itand jmd ivt if tH m nf
j that some time after the creatare had been
! disemboweled, it bit fiercely at a stick of
! wood inserted between its jaws. After
catting off the head, for the purpose of
' preserving the teeth, and taking oat the
! liver to try it oat, for lamp oil, the carcass
was thrown overboard. It had hardlv
touched the water before there was a creat
: , splashing alongside, and in the moonlight,
two or three fins of sharks coald be seet.,
arcfipg aboat and making an evening meal,
caaaibal-Hke, off their late chnm. I don't
tbere as gold enough ever dag
that coald have tempted me at that mo
ment to have ventured overboard.
On the feHewin? moraicsr, the wind.
j though fight, was off shore, and fair for us
i to go through the break ia the reef, aad
i so we got under-weigh for the last time in
i FijiL Bat shortly after we had passed
; beyond the boiling, thundering breakers
that fine the entrance of the Xckclan
I standing along parallel with the reef, eo-
deavor to get an oEag. Things begaa to
look omiaous for the safetv of the vessel.
There was a heavy sweH from seaward,
..; , ,v- i r t.i.i.
stUD? 10 w coral reef, on which
jj-g 1; rose as high as ourlower-
masts. For every foot we wen: ahead.
ve went sideways two feet towards the
land. The captain evident! v saw and ap-
P"" toe danger, for his countenance
wore an expression of great anxiety. There
as no use in trying to aachor, for the wa-
ter was nmhsblr a fcendred falhnm i?wn

Sim edged down towards the reef, and it
seemed as thoagh there was no hope for
her. A dead silence reigned fore and aft,
as aH anxiously watched the sails and pray
ed far the wind.
Let me here confess, that I was wicked

Tage cocpcency. Aside from the
wretched maHce of the thoaght, the folly
of it was still worse, for should the vessel
trike, it w cot likely that a angle soul
03 board would nave lived to tefl tne tale.
TTe were within about two hundred and
fifty yards of the reef, when the silence
was broken by the captain, as coolly and
ia as quiet a tone of voice as if ordering
to hoist the Snzg-jS) saying to the
mate, "Mr. HzrtweU, have the boats en
listed and lowered away, and we win try
aad tow her round on the other tack."
' The men worked silently, but with a will.
aad in a few minutes after the order was

gireo, the two bcttU were fthead, and tbe
crew straining at their oars to pull the bng
around. Just then, the little wind we re-
vionsly had, died entirely away, and the
vessel, rising and falling on the heavy
swell, fell off in spite of the tugging or
the boats, aad she now pointed head oa
to the reef, which by this Ume, was
cit more than a hundred yards distant,
The thundering of the surf was almost
deafeninc I was stationed at the wheel,
and as I watched the compressed lips and
stern bearing of the captain, and the pallid
countenance of the mate as he stood on
the heel of the bowsprit, and ever aad
anon glanced anxiously up at the sails
mr sentiments as to the desirableness of
having the old Gotaiia go ashore, under-
went a considerable chanir. I becaa to
take ina realizaUon of the fact thatTif we
once struck anion? those terrible breakers,
all must inevitably be lost. My thoughts
went back to the home I had left, far off,
many thousand miles away. I doubt wheth
er I didn't feel worse than when, at Mali.
I was m clanger of being killed and eaten.
Suddenly, the mate, from the bows,
shouted in stentorian tones " Here it
comes! Hurrah 1 All a-back. forward V
It was the wind coming off from the land,
first in gentle airs, and then gradcally in
creasing to a good, four-knot breeze. VTe
were saved! The brig slowly swung round
with her head seaward, and as the wind
freshened, we soon cot a good oEng.
Hoisting in the boats, we steered away to
the eastward, under ail sail, for the open
sea, runnier throosrh the channel bitween
the Islands of Mbent-a and Kantsvu. At
sundown, we were ocrjosite the latter is!
hirh blue mountains of Yiti Leva, under
the shadow of which by Rewa. with all
its charms as well as its abominations
were dimly discernible ia the distance, far
astern, while the sharp peaks of Kantavu".
oa oar left, were gilded with the rays of
the settisr sua. We had on board a
Tonga man. who had lived many years at
Iivouka and Mbau. among the chief fami
lies. Shortly before oar departure from
the islands, his favorite wife had died, and
he became discontented with the people
and the country. Expressing his desire to
see foreign countries, the captain received

the understanding that he was to make
himself generally nsefcl. lie was tall and
stout over six feet high and coald make
himself sensibly felt on a rope. He was
rood humored, but at times, appeared to
be lost in melancholy reverie. Oa the
evening when the islands were slowly
fading from our sight amidst the waves,
Tonga, as we called him. leaned his brawny
arms over the vessel's rail, and with eyes
fixed on the fast disappearing land, he
chanted in low tones, and with a musical
voice, a mournful farewell to Yiti, while
the tears ran down his cheeks. Although
I did not shed tears myself, yet 1 felt sad
enough, and sympathized with Tonga, self
exiled though he was.
During the evening, when my tarn had
come to take the wheel again, the captain
came on deck, puffing his invariable cigar
he always kept a stock of Manila che
roots on hand and, after taking two or
three teres up and down the weather side
of the quarter-deck, exchanging now and
then a word with the mate, leaned over
the rail for a moment, and turning his head
partially round to where I stood, asked, in
a rather gruff tone "How does she head ?
Course, sir," I replied. Don't let her foil
off from that" "Aye, aye, sir." Then
taking a tern or two more up and down
the quarter-deck, he came and looked into
the binnacle where the compass was, and.
seeing that I had got the brig just oa the
exact point which had been ordered, he
turned, and standing just alongside of me,
said What an infernal fool you must be,
to Lave thought that yon could run away
from me at these islands. And wouldn't
I have bad a nice yarn to spin to your re
lations when I got home, if I had left you
out there among those savages. I should
never have beard the last of it- But I
want to know what were your reasons for
running away from me ? Didn't I always
treat you well, and try to learn you navi
gation and seamanship V This was the
longest speech I had ever heard from our
captain, who wa3 generally a man of very
few words, and what with my perturbation
in trying to ad words with winch to an
swer him, and my attempts to revolve the
wheel so as to keep the brig on her course,
she naturally got to yawing about. His
seaman's eye detected this in an instant,
and saying to me sternly, "Mind your
course there,' he went below. Just as four
bells struck, and I was aboat to be reliev
ed, he came on deck again, and stood in
the waist as I went forward on the lee
side. He called me to him. and gave me,
in a few words, as fatherly a lecture as one
might expect from a pater famxhxa, and
not from an old salt. It attached me to
him thenceforward, and I now remember
him he must be quite old sow with sin
The passage from Eewa to Manila, was
through tropical seas, unvexed by gales;
the Pacific here being truly dessrringcl
the came it bears. The wind blew steadi
ly tut gently, frcra the south-east a quar-
tcrlyorfree wind for uj and we were
wafted along pleasantly. Ocr course lay
among scattered groups of islands, with j
here and there an isolated one. It
not desirable to go too near any of these
islands, on account of the savage character
of the inhabitants, and as our boarding
nettings were stowed away below, and our
guns secured by lashings, wo would have
been incapable of making a defense against
a large force of the savage islanders. So
we kept our course out of sight of land,
thoogh frequently by varying a half a
point by compass, an hour's sailing would
have brought us close in with the land,
Once only during the passage did we ret
sight of land, and that was for the purpose
or pro vine the accuracy of the chronom-
eter. Heasant Island, as it is named on
' the charts, is a small, low island, densely
covered with cocoanuts and other tropical
trees, and cannot be seen until you get
within a few miles of it- The inhabitants
are said to be fierce and warlike. Find
ing the chronometer all right, we soon left
Pleasant Island astern.

watched its increasing size and blackness,
I suddenly saw it form two or three loni
tapers, descending down from the body of
the cloud, which was now fast approaching
I had never seen a water-spout, but
from descriptions which I had read, I at
once concluded that I was now witnessing
the formation of one of these wonders of
nature, not very often seen except by those
who go down to the sea in ships. Should
one of these whirlwinds strike a ship, she
would doubtless be dismasted, if not cap
sized. Stepping to the side, I said "Captain
Waliis, I believe there 13 a water-spoat
forming to windward, and it appears to be
coming down apon us." He immediately
jumped on deck, and after one look in the
direction I indicated, he shouted lor all
hands to tumble in-board and stand by the
halyards and clew-lines. The jibs were
hauled dorrn and the light sails clewed np.
Fortunately, the water-spout passed clear
of us, but within thirty yards only, of our
stem. It was boiling and hissing cr
rather, the ocean was as the surcharged
cloud poured itself into the sea. At the
same time, a drenching shower of rain fell
within a radius of a quarter of a mile round
the spout. It used to be a favorite theory
with seafaring men, that the salt water as
cended, but my close observation of the
spout I have mentioned, convinced me that
it was rain water descending.

Tee following clipping from the Oakland
Real Estate Cazttte, Is not only worthy of
perusal, but of remembrance and rejection.
An attention to its hints would save many
heavy lawyer's fees.
"All deeds, mortgages, contracts, or other
Instruments aceciing real estate should be
drawn with great care and accuracy. An er-
rjneus date, the omission of a word, or a
careless description of the property may, at
DO distant, asy, cause a ureal deal of trouble,
as well as a Urge bill of expenses. Very
many blackmail titles are based upon some
infumulity in conveyances, which, by care
ful nursing at the bands of those who make
a business of bleeding the timid, eventually
becomes a cloud upon title. Fortunately,
the statute of limitation cures many of thee
informalities. We are ltd to refer to Ibis
subject, from having recently had occasion
to examine a conveyance of a valuable piece
of property, of which the owner wished an
apprisa. The former owner, having pnr-cbx-ed
and sold several pieces of property,
and being able to write a decent band, con
sidered himself as ou Jait In conveyancing,
and was satisfied that, with the use of a
printed blank. be could draw a deed as well
as a lawyer, and save that five dollars.' Tet
be so signally failed to describe tbe properly,
that a surveyor was unable to tell in which
oart of the city It was located. Another
deed, which passed through our hands not
long ago, described completely a piece of

being given, or other description. Some
times, descriptions by metes and bounds
crosses a street or fails to enclose the property-
Such outrageous carelessness Is per
fectly Inexcusable. Tet those whose busi
ness It is to examine real estate conveyances
will tell you that such instances are by no
means uncommon. Accuracy in conveyance
becomes a question of title, upon which all
agree that none but an attorney or searcher
of records should pass. For this reason,
deeds or other Instrument afiveting real es
tate, should be drawn only by those experi
enced In tbe business of conveyancing.
