looking like a coll.er coming; from Newcastle,
anchored, in mo oiung it was a ciiar, irueiy
morning, with a sharp breete Trom tfto east,
which prevented many from going ont lUblng.
About twenty of ns were gathered round tbo
benches ln front of tho coast guard nation,
yonder, when we seed this ship letting down

A s.r2?e case, perhaps says bet but
we shall hear all about It directly, as they are
letting down tbo boat, X see."
In a few minutes tho boat was at the ehoro,
and a man with a thick surge coat and wry
largo buttons, Jumped oat and walked towards
the place where we wero atandlng.
'Uocsyour parson live near nero, iiiiiua r

This sally was received with shouts of laugh
ter by all, except tte man with the big button-,
who put on a most uncommon sad lace, and
Enlled out a large handkerchief, with which
ebecan to mop his eyes.

to you,' said old John, 'and that's why yon
put on sneb an uncommon long face. Well, I
be sorry for you mate, that I be.'
Mary Ann Darley, who was the beloved
wife of our skipper, George Ilalfrod Darley,
and after whom the ship is named, Is dead,
dead as a red herring, said the roan, with a
voice fall of anguish, which made old Jnhn
look ashamed bf all his former Jokes. 'No,
mates, without any more trilling with my fed

Thla Is a comp'lment to urmlutster, the

whom we were not a little proud, aud the ex

we all volunteered to show him tho way to tbo
In less than ten minutes wo saw our min
ister's tall thin figure coming down the Mi

In another ten minutes he was on board tbe
'In about an hour's time the boat landed!
Mr. Colea again, who, as he passed us, stopped '
tn shake hand's with tbe Lieutenant, who hid

" Most Interesting case," said tho vicar. "I
never saw a man more Completely prostrated
by grief) poor fellow I his wife dead Just ihrco
days only been married two years ' I nevtr
witnessed more sympathy exhibited for any ono
than tbe whole crew expresses toward Mint to
sea It was quite charmiug. The mau with tboeo
buttons Is a good, honest, sailor Iiko fellow,
with the tenderest of hearts. I was deeply In
terested In all tbe particulars of tho young
women's death, which he told me. Ho ended
by beseeching me to poriuadu tho skipper to
bury his wife, as the crew can't bear a dead body
on board ship, and the skipper, ho says, Is al
ways sitting andcr)inghy It. I could not help
agreeing with him that It was no use ln keep
ing the poor woman above groundr "
"And what have you settled to dol" said tho
Lieutenant, returning hli glaBs Into Its case.
" Why, of course, tho thing wai Irregular, but
ai all the men on board seemed very anxious
abont It, I told the skipper about It, who seemed
as overcome by grief as any man 1 ever met,
that If he liked, J would perform the last rlus
over his poor young wife this very afternoon.
At first, as I was told to uxpuct, he would not
hear of the funeral taking place anywhere but
at Newcastle, his home, but after sorao persua
sion he yielded the point, and tbo thing is all
settled) so, as I mu.t tell the sexton to prepare
a grave by half past three, I must not talk any
longer) and really the scene I havo last come
from, makes me loel that I should like to be
alone for a time. 1 am most thankful to say
that the conversation I had with tbe poor fol
low, did mnch to make him resigned. lie had
heard of me often belore, he said, and on bis
table I noticed my littlo tract called rcsigna
tion, which ho told me, to nso his o n v urds,
hAd been a balm to his wounded spirit. ery
gratifying, was it nl I Good morning to you,
my dearLleutenlant) good morning, my good
men," he added, as we raised our caps to him,
and saw his kindly face turn towards home.
Before long the bells began to toll, and as I
went home to dinner, I saw the sexton hard nt
work at the grave, which, at the skipper's re
quest, was to bo made on tho side nearest the
sea and farthest from the village, since he told
the vicar It would bo so comforting, when his
ship passed by Elruin, " to seo the spot here
