TTIUESnAY EVENING, 31A EC H 10.
A Famois Clipper.?The Dreadnaught, the
most-famous of American clippers, was built in
1853. On her tirst return voyage from Liver?
pool, in February, 1854, she beat the Canard
htetmship Canada She rapidly iuercased her
<elebrity iu the voyages that followed, in 1859
making the 3,000 miles from Sandy Hook to
Livorpool in 13 days aud 8 hours. Iu the year
lollowing she made a rec rd that was never equal?
ed, boforo or since, by a filing vessel, going iron;
>?.udy Hook to Queenstown. 2,760 miles, in 0
d?ys*and 17 hour- For a long time tbis trip
u-ts the only topic in sailing circles. It wa8_P?'
tois famous trip that Captain Samuels'.phenome?
nal pluck and vigilance were typically exempli
;'; d, though he simply explained it in this wise:
? My success, un ter God's Providence. I attributed
to discipline, and to forcing the ship at night as
well as during the day." It was in the tame
Dreadnanght, in 18G2, that Captain Samuels ac?
complished a feat in sailing that still stands with?
out a parallel. The ship was struck by a sea that
!>rokc his left leg and would have carried him
overboard but for his timely seizure by two sail?
ors. As he iay in the cabin the news was brought
him that the rudder had been carried away. The
ship lay for three days in the trough of the ?es.
wtr.le the sailors, under the disabled commander's
ordeis, were constructing a new rudder. This
was lost in setting it, and then all c-3'orts to turn
the ship's head southward by means of drags hav?
ing been found useless, tho Captain furled all the
head nails and >et all the square sails on the mi/.
- i:mast and the whole of the maintopsaii and
threw sharp back every sail that was .set. I5y
keeping the sails trimmed liat back, the ship was
-ailed backward for 2S0 miles toward the nearest
V.rbor. Fayal. By the time the port was rcaehed,
tbe second rudder was shipped, and they anchored
safely. Capt. Samuels has been selected to sail
the yacht Dauntless iu her transatlantic race
with the Coronet next Saturday.
