Henry May rs. Schooner Sorereign, John Chnm
hers, Master, el aL
This is a libel filed against tho schooner Sove
reign, by tba owner of cargo brought in the same,
from San Francisco to this port, for damage dono
to the goods in the, coarse of the Yoyage.
The libel charges, that Horace Davis & Co.
shipped on board the schooner Sovereign, at San
Francisco, in good order, and consigned to the
Libellant at Honolulu, a certain quantity of floor,
bread, and crackers in tins, which the master of
said schooner has failed to deliver in part, and in
food order, to the valuo of $450.
The Libellant nlleges that owing to the Sorer
eign being in an unsound and unseawotthyjCon
dition, and owing to careless, negligent,, and ira
proper stowage, anu me isrge ana excessive
quantity of freight, and by reason of want of
proper care on tho part of tho master, etc., largo
quantities of sea-water camo on board the deck
of said vessel, which deck was falsa and open, by
which tho merchandise was damaged to the
extent of &159.02.
Tho Respondent admits the shipping of the
goods, bat denies that any damage was sustained
which was not caused by danger of the 5eai ; and
bo avers that any damage incurred was caused by
one of the perils excepted by the bill of lading;
that the Sovereign, on the 28th of Xovember,
sailed from San Francisco, laden with assorted
cargo; was then staunch, tight and strong; that
the merchandise was well and sufficiently stowed
and secured, hatches well secured, caulked, cov
ered, &c ; that tho deck was not false, and open
or leaky, bnt sound ; that the schooner was well
and sufficiently manned, victualed, furnished, Sec. ;
that bio encountered rough weather, and gales
and heavy seas, which caused her to labor heav
ily, and that tho damage was by winds, weather,
and accidents of voyage.
The goods having been received at San Fran-
.cisco as per bill of lading to be delivered here in
good order, and tho Respondent having failed to
fulfill the contract, it is incumbent on him, in
order to excuse himself, to show that tho damago
was occasioned by the dangers of tho sea, as that
is the unly exception ia the bill of lading.
The issue is, then, formally made. The prin
ciples of law which are recognized a3 applicable
to a case of this kind aro very well laid down in
the notes in Smith's Leading Cases, at page 333.
The carrier is always liable for injuries resulting
from his own negligence, including, of course, de
fects in the mean3 of transportation provided by
him. lie is therefore, liable for those injuries
which the violence of motion causes in conse
quence of his negligence or defective means. By
proving the delivery of the thing to bo carried
by him, the burden of accounting for, is thrown
upon him, and he may either show tho safe de
livery of the goods or prove that tho loss occurred
by ono of tho excepted causes.
ll the authorities agree that after the damage
to cargo has been established, it is incumbent on
the Respondent to show that it was occasioned
by tho perils excepted by the bill of lading, and
in doing this ho mnst show that tho ship was !
seaworthy and well found, and properly manned,
and managed in a scamanlike manner, and that
the cargo was properly stowed and dunnaged. In
the case of Clarke vs. Barnwell, 12 llannard, 132,
tbe Court say that although tho loss occurs by
tho peril of the sea, yet if it might bavo been
avoided by skill and diligence at the time, the
carrier is liable. But in this stage of the case,
burden is on tho plaintiff to establish tho negli
gence, as tue auirmauve lies, upon linn, ice
doctrine of Ia Motte et al. vs. Angel, in 1 Haw.
R., 140, is somewhat at variance with this case,
for there the Conrt say, that to impose upon tho
merchant the obligation to prove negligence ou
the part of the carrier would be a great hardship,
for he does not usually accompany the ship; he
is not acquainted with the incidents of the
voyage ; whereas, it is an easy matter for tbo
master, when he has nsed care and diligence in
transporting the property, to show that care and
the absence oi negligenco on his part." Prac
tically, there may not be much difference in pre
senting a case to the Court, but it is clear to my
mind that it should bo inenmbent on the Re
spondent to prove that the !os3 was occasioned
by the perils of the seas, after having done his
full duty in furnishing a seaworthy vessel, and
sailing her in a seamanlike manner, with her cargo
well stowed and dunnaged. After he has thus
made a prima facie case, the Libellant may, of
coarse, introduce rebutting evidence that the
loss might hare been avoided by skill and dili
gence at the time.
For the defence, the first officer, ia introduced.
who testifies that he has been a mariner for
twenty-three or twenty-four years, and has been
attached to the Sovereign jinco Nov. 21st, last ;
ha3 always served in schooners, except two or
three years ; has been a master, mate, and fore
mast hand. " I had oftenfeen this vessel before
I went on board in San Francisco, and have
known her for eighteen months. She had been
newly painted in her upper works, and copper
painted on tbe bottom ; her tonnage wa3 93
tons." Ho Ears, further, that she wa3 in a sea
worthy condition, in his judgment ; that she was
well found for a voyage of this kind, in sails and
rigging, cables- and anchors, manned, and not
lesking, and was apparently a strong vessel.
" She didn't work or complain," to use bis lan
guage ; tho decks were apparently in good order,
and so were tbe pumps. He testifies, further,
that they bad rough weather before reaching the
Fatallones, encountering strong winds and a
heavy sea ; reefed tbo sails ; the vessel labored
very heavily ; shipped some water, and lost gome
lumber overboard ; tbe pump3 were promptly
attended to ; after tbe heavy weather, the vessel
made 160 strokes an hoar. On tbe third day oat,
tbe vessel labored heavily, and tho was hove to ;
ha made no water till the second day out ; that
tho weather was stormy the first fifteen days out,
and that she labored heavily ; no sails were split
or carried away ; thero was a rip in the mainsail.
He eayg that the vessel wax full below, and her
deck lead wa3 Sash with the rail, being some
twenty-eight inches high. We bad on, and be
tween decks some 30 II. lumber ; on .the Coutr-
eho would carry 40 M. or SO M. oa deck.
Tba second officer cdrrcratea' the teUpBy
of tbe first officer, and aaya thai they bad roagh
weather and heavy sea oa the second and third
day oat ; hid to lay ccder clow sail, hating a
heavy sea all tbe time ; the vessel labored heavily.
One of tbe foremast "sands corroborated jbe
testimony of tho officers of the. schooner as to
her being seaworthy, and also as to tho rough
weather. Ho says that the schooner lay to under
trysail and jib at ono time, and that a gale made
a hole in the jib, and parted the flying-jib
stay. At times, part of mainsail was close-
hauled. Ha says, further, that tho water camo
on board over the bows, amidships and- quarter.
and that the vessel labored heavily most ot tho
way dqwn. Ho saya that tho schoanerlkid to
a part of one day ; that tho foresail was double-
reefed ; that reefs were taken in tha mainsail
that the trysail was set ; that tho mainsail was
old ; that tho trjjai! and foresail were good.
The first question to bo settled is as to the
seaworthiness of the vessel. It appears that th8
vessel, in tho opinion of these witnesses, who
havo sailed her on this voyage, is staunch and
strong, and in all respeets seaworthy ; that she
encountered a gale of wind and heavy sea. They
are all experienced seamen. Tho officers were
well acquainted with the sailing of schooners,
and tho Court is obliged to regard their testi
mony, unimpeached 03 It is, as conclusivo in the
absenco of all opposing evidence.
The next question which arises is as to tho
sufficiency of tho stowage On the arrival of tho
schooner, tbe U, S. Consul, at tha request of tho
master, appointed Capt. McGregor, an experi
enced shipmaster, to make a survey of the
hatches, which ho did, and bo testified that they
wcro well secured in all respects, and that the
cargo was well stowed with proper dunnage, and
that it had not shifted, but it was owing to being
wet with salt water that tho injnry aroso ; the
leak was from the deck as the water appeared
to have run from one bag to another. This tes
timony is in corroboration of tbo testimony oi
tbe second officer, who superintended the stowage
of the vessel.
But it is contended by tho counsel for the Li
bellant that it was unsafe to havo had a deck
load of lumber, especially when carrying an
assorted cargo. It is in evidence that the cargo
did not shift, although a few boards were blown
off by tho gale. Tho vessel was deep in the
water, and Capt. Babcock says- that it is not a
heavy deck load, if tbe vessel. .was strong. Tho
mato says he thiuks there was some 30 M. on
board, above and below, but that on the Coast
thi3 vessel would carry 40 M. or 50 M. on deck
it is very evident therefore, that this was not an
unreasonable deck load for a ssawor'.by vessel.
It is contended, further, that as the leak was
made on the second day outLand near the Fara
ellones, it was tbe duty of tbo master to bavo
returued to San Francisco ; but the second offi
cer says that it would havo been unsafe to havo
returned, ns thero was a gale of wind and a
heavy sea from tho sputh-tast and south-west.
Tho decision or a question of this sort must bo
left to the discretion of the master.; and unless
it appears that he was reckless, it is not proper
to hold tim responsible for any advantage which
shippers may sup'posa they would havo derived
011 taking a different course. It is very evident
that the flour was injured beforo they possibly
could have made sail for San Francisco, and nioro
especially beforo she could havo reached that
The Respondent has shown that the vessel en
countered a gale of wind and boisterous weather,
and that she labored heavily ; that tho sea broke
on her amidships and on the quarter, and that
she shipped much water, p that it was necessary
to keep tho pumps in almost constant operation
to keep the vessel free. It is very evident that
tho leak wa3 occasioned by the straining of the
vessel in the gale and heavy weather encountered
after leaving tho port of San Francisco.
After carefully examining the testimony and
the principles of law applicable to it, I am of
opinion that tho damago arose from tho dangsrs
af tho seas, within thr exceptions of tbe bill of
lading, and therefore, tho libel must bo dismissed
Let judgment be entered accordingly.

A Strnnjrc .SlorV-
A curiou3 ca3o recently tranpired in the vi
cinity of Pcoiia, Illinois, and a3 it has never
been in print, I send it to you The Cincin
nati Commercial In 1802, a man by the namo
of John Talbert married a young lady by the
namo of Rebecca Farmer. Soon after the cele
bration of the nuptial ceremonies, Talbert enlist
ed in the Cavalry ltej;iment : and went to
tbe front. He was at homo on a furlough in 18
63, and returned to his regiment in a few weeks.
In one of the battles in M13.3i3.ipi ho became mis

Talbert was found nnd hurried. His friends were
informed of bis death, and mourned for him many
days. When the Regiment returned, with
flyjng colors, hU place was vacant, and hia wife
looked at the horsemen as they marched proudly
up the streets of tbe city, but looked in vain for
tho form she would most loved to have seen.
Talbert had been a good citizen, and bad long
paid his devotions to the lady whom he married.
Feeling it Lis duty to join the army, he had mar
ried her before be enlisted, that he might havo
the right to protectjher when bo jturned. Ho
was a good soldier, always doing his duty faith
fully, and when tho battle raged was In his placo
unflinching and determined. When his supposed
body was found, not one of bi3 former comrades
but mourned that,ta.had been taken from their
The war closed, and Talbert was, almost forgot

took of tho weeds' off m earning, and gave her

name of Simpson, fa'ho bad borne a child to
Talbert ia bis absence, and all her loro for her
father had centered in the iuago of tbo departed
About three months after Simpson aod Mrs.
Talbert were married, tho young carpenter fell
from the scaffolding of a largo building bo was at
work upon, and his brains wero dashed out upon
the ground. Rebecca Farmer was for tbe tecoB! -'

utterly regardless of the twice rtrfekes.
The child of Talbert lad grown into a lovely
girl of seven gammers, sod wai tat) only lore and

But now comes the grxsd uenoument. WTiila

awaiting burial on tho morrow, a stranger called
at tho poor woman' door. A neighbor lady, who
had charge of tbo mourning house, admitted him,
and ho asked to sea Mrs. Simpson. The lady
came down, and found in the supposed stranger
her long-lost husband, John Talbert he for whom
ho had mourned as dead.
Ho explained his long- absence ia this) wisa :
After the battle In which ho was suppooed to
have been killed, he found himself a priaonarrla
the hands of tba rebels. Ho was hurried from
one post to another, nntil at last ho was taken to
Andersonville, In.that prisop-pen he languished
for months, until ha forgot tho passing timo;
until tho intense longing for homo completely
broko his heart. Whan ha was tiberated.na say,
everything was a blank to him. Ho wandered to
New York City, and lived there for mora than a
year, and then passed to the great West, where
he lived until a yenr'ago. Ho recovered hia health
of body nnd mind, but for several years could not
bring himself to think of returning homo. Ha
said there was an intense yearning to sea bis wife
and child, but by soma curious, morbid feeling,
ho suppressed tha promptinc; of hia heart, and re
mained away from the beings ha loved, brooding
over his carious, self-imposed condition. A few
months sinco bo was .taken with an Irresistible
longing to return to'llllnois, and the scenes of
his former happinesilmt' bo desired to do to
without being recognized. He camo tack, much
changed in appearance, visited Peoria, and found
his wife married to another man. "
There was a fresh agony of mind and poignancy
was added to the thought thatnf ho bad returned
when his imprisonment ended, or even after his
faculties had been fully restored, ho would havo
found his wife still mourning for him, and could
have gladdened her heart by showing her that ha
was still alive. Now thero was nothing wr turn
to do but to go away, as Enoch Ardcn bad done.
and leave Philip Ray to his happiness. Ho could
not tear himself completely from the spot, how
ever. Ho had seen, his child and its mother on
tha street, and ho had felt liko going forward and
claiming his own. So ho removed himself about
a hundred miles from his old home ; for to havo
remained in Peoria, where ho had lieen pretty
well known, would havo betrayed him, finally.
The news of the death of Simpson did not reach
him. Though he received a paper regularly frota
Peoria, this, to him, most important item of news.
failed to meet his eye. But the-otber day ho did
seo a notico of tho death of his child, and in less
than five hours he was besido its coffin. Not till
then did he learn of tho death of Simpson. But
his wife, tho girl ha had loved, and thought bo
had lost by a strangawork of Providence, fell
into lira arm3, and' ha realized that ha hail
still something to livo for. The wife received her
husband again, in tho placo of the child sho had
lost, and the, neighbors rejoiced at her good
fortune, notwitstandiog a few of them felt soruo
indignation that he had remained away go long
after his imprisonment had ended.
As Island or Silvtsr. Wo havo beforo al
luded to the Silver Island of tbo north shore of
Lake Superior, in the British Possessions, just
below Thunder Ctpc, and soma fiftoen mile, be
yond Fort William. Tba island ia qnita small in
dimensions say 100 feet by 40 and tho most of
it is submerged at high wafer a small part at
one end is about eight feet abc7e the lake level.
TbU island was rented by the Montreal Mining
Company aa part of a tract embracing 108,000
acres. It was only last Summer that Capt. Frew
and bis company completed their bargain with, tho
Montreal Company for tho island, and secured it
by paying, or agreeing to pay 8250,000 for tha en
tire 103,000 acres. They went immediately to
work at improving tha mine in a "workmanlike
manner." Tbo first step was to surround tba Is
land with cribs of timber, filled with stone, to serve
as s break-water and an Ice-breaker; and withies
these cribs a cofferdam was built, and puddled
with clay, having the effect of making (he whole
interior of lbs island nearly water-tight, at least
from tbo intrusions of tbe lake. The next step
was to set np two largo syphon, pumps, worked
by steam, by which tho insidowas pumped dry,
or nearly so, and it has since been found that a
very little working of the pumps dally keeps tha
jsland clear of water entirely. Then they went
to work laying bare the vein, and now have ex
posed seventy feet in length, and find it to be a
truo fissure vein, with perpendicular wa!ls, tberf
vein of silver matrix being calcareous spar- with
soma little quartz intermixed. The vein la eight
feet wide, and eyewitnesses from there (late that
for ono-quarter of this width it will average
seventy per cent of pure silver. On tba first
trial, after tho water was gotten oat, six men
took out 335,000 worth of silver in four days ; aod
up to tho latest accounts, the working has been
continued at about this rate. Already 123 bar
rels of native silver, estimated to be worth $75,
000, have been shipped, Tbe yield of the mine,
computed by the too, is not less than SI to tha
pound. Tbe mine employs now about forty men,
and the Company will increase their force imme
diately. From the DuluA Minnesotian.
