she backed her sails again, and waited
for some time in prosecution of her
mission of mercy, no doubt; relieving
some of our scattering comipaluionis
fLom a like precarious state.
Soon she tilled away again, and at
last laying to close by the two firemen,
I saw her boat lowered with fire men
in it, who, picking Up the two firemen
in their course, came dashing along
direct for my rafi, and soon bouncing
alongside, I allowed myself to tumble
aboard of them, unable physically to
adopt anything of a graceful action,
and morally overpowered with gi ti
tude to- God and to those his instru
ments... l'renained speechless until I
got on board the ship. I'elore getting
en board,. however, the boat. went
away fdr some distance to windward,
and picked usp the three other fit omen,
who I had seen leave the Arctic, but
who had been ever since out of view.
We all got huddled upon the deck
somehow, although rather awkwardly,
and making my way down to her neat,
little cabin, as well as my stiff feet
and legs would allow, I had the pleas
ure of' paying my respects to Captain
John Xaussell, and f'ound myself on
board the ship Cambria, of Greenock,
bound from Glascow to Quebee. Capt.
Russell, Rev. Mr. Walker, if the
Free Church of Scotland, and his very
kind and attentivet lady, Mr, Sither

JohA McNaught, and several of the
passengers of the steerage, paid every
attention that I could ha% e desired
Capt. Russell giving moe up the berth
which he had bee& using- himself; and
putting pverything on board in requi

relieve and maike us comfortable.
I was surprised Lo learn that the old
Frenchman, whom we had picked up
from the Vesta, was our good genius
on this occasion. Being directly in
the track of the approaching Cantiria,
he was picked up by the second
mate of the Cambria. Mr. loss,
jumping overboard with a line, and
seizing hold of the nan, they were
both pulled on board, and the rescued
Frenchman, in the best English he
could muster, made Catpt. Rluawell
aware that others were necar, who then~
went to the masthead and with his
glass made out the other four pieces
of wreck, which we were all on, and
making his long tack to windward,

along with eight others of' those whoe
went down with the ship, had gained
this piece of wreek, which turned ont
to be a segment of one of' the pad 1,

support such is a duty every man owes I
himself and society. ,Tp' those who wisl
