for some time in prosecutitn of her

some of our hcattering companions
foin a like precarious state.
Soon she tilled away again, and at

got on board the ship. Pefore getting
on board,. however, the boat went
away fdr some distance to wind ward,
and picked up tihe three other liiemen,

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 t
and legs would allow, I had the pleas i
ure of paying my respects to Captain
John Russell, and found myself on
board the ship Cambria. of Greenock,
bound from Glascow to Quebec. Capt.
Russell, Rev. Mr. Walker, of the
Free Churech of Scotland, and his very

John McNaught, and several of the
passengers of the steerage, paid every I

putting everything on board in requi. c
sition that night tend in the least to
relieve and make uscotifortable. t
I was surprised to 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 Cambria,
he was picked up by the second
mate of the Cambrin. Mr. Ioss,
jumping overboard with a line, and
seizisig hold of the man, they were I
both pulled on board, and the rescued c
Frenchman, in the best English he
could muster, made Capt. Rtumsell
aware that others were near, who then
went to the masthead and with his
glass made out thme other four pieces
of wreck, which we were all on, and
making his long tack to windward, 4

up first, from that half round piece of
wreck that I saw burst above the sur.

of the Novelty Works, and a young
German, a passenger on the Arcetic,
by the name ofkFerdinand Kaye. Tlhey, ,
along with eight others of those who
went down with the ship, had gained
this piece of wvreek, which turtned out
to be a segment of one of the pado 1
boxes, and, singular as it .seems, Capt.
Luce, who had stuck by his sinkinig
ship to the Iast minute, was thtus saved
~at last on the ver y boards which as
