would hold water, was filed even all

HOPIING AGAINST HOPE.
For.eeven days- the bonti sailed on,
mid tho starving ineu cab their frag
incut ol biscuit and their morsolot raw
pork in tho , morning, and hungrily
counted tho tedious hours until, noon
anil night should bring their repetioin
of it. And in tho long intervals they
looked mutely into each other's faces,
or turned their wistful eyes across the
wild Sea in search ot tho succoring sail
that was never to come.
"Didn't you talk?' laskodouoof tho
of tho men. "
'No; we-wero too down-hoarled--
that.is; t ho first week or more. Yo
didn't talk wo'only looked lit. each
other and over the ocean.
And thought, I suppose. Thought
of homo of. fcholter from Btorms- oi'

TheMiopo of being picked tip hungto

them, and in llieirthonghts, liko bun

tho hope of making the Clarion Islands-,
and ho eung to it many a day, -
' Tho nights wcro very dark. They
had no lantorn and could not ' eee the
compass, and thoro Wero no stars to
steer by. ; Thomas said of the boat:
'She bandlod easy, and wo Btoered by
tho feel of of tho wind in our faces find
the heavo of tho ea.". Dark, and dis
mal, and lonesotu work was that.
Sometimes they got a fleeting glimpse
of tho Bailor's friend tho north Btar,
and then they lighted, a natcli and
hastened anxiously to seo if their compass
was faithful to thorn for it had to bo
placed close to an iron ringbolt in' tho
stein, and tht$- were afraid, during
thosq first nigbts, that thismight cause
it to vary. It proved truo to them,
however.' ' .
SUMPTUOUS FARE.
On tlio fifth day ' a notable incident
occurred.' They ' caught ' a dolphin,
uud while their enthusiasm was still at
it jiighost over this strokcof good for
twne, they captured another.. . They

THE BOATS SEPARATE.
After tho eighth day I havo ten days
unaccounted for no notes of thorn,
savo that tho men say they had ; their
two or threo ounciTi of food and their
gill of Water three times a day, and
then tho Pamo weary watching for in
sail by day and by night, and tho same
sad ' hope deferred that makcth tho
heart sick," was their monotonous ex
perience. They talkeiuoro. however
and tho Captain labortvl without cos
ing to keep them cheerful. 1 . '
The eighteenth day I -was a mcmora
Llo ono to tho wanderers ,oi tho lonely
sea. On that, day the boats parted

example if the' thought best, but ho
wished theui to freely follow tho dicta
tes of their own judgemout in tho mut
ter." At cloven o'clock in tho forenoon
the boats wero all east looso from each
other, and then, as friends part from
friends whom they expectedto meet no
more in life, all hands bailed with a
fervent ' (iod bless you, boys; good

away and disuppcared from tho long

ANOTHER CAPTURE.
; On tho afternoon of this eventful
day two "boobies" were caught ubird
about as largo as a duck, but all bones
and feathers not us much hicat as
there is on a pigoon--not noarly so
much, tho men say. They uto theiu
ruw bones, entrals and every thing
no single morsel was wasted ; s they
were carefully apportioned among tho
fifteen men. No fire could be built for
cooking purposes; the wind wag strong
and tho sea ran bo high that it was all
a man could do to light his pipe,.
AN INCIDENT.
On morning twenty-
day, while some of tho crew wero doz-
nir on the thwarts, and others wero
buried in reflection, ono of tho men
sttddenly sprang to t is feet and cried,
"A saill asaiir' Of epursa sluggish
blood bounded then, and eager eyes
wero turned to seek the weldonio vis
ion. But disappointment was their
ixntion, as usuul. It was only tho
Chief Erto's boat drilling across their
path, after three days absenco. In a
short time tho two parties wero abreast
of each other, and in haling distance.
They talked twentyminutes; the mate
reported "all well'' and ' then Bailed
awaj', und they never Baw him ' after
ward. , ; i , ., ri . , i ,:.
FURTHER REDUCTION OF RATIONS.
On the twenty-fourth day Captain
Mitchell tookau observation, and louud
that ho was in latitude sixteen degrees
north, and longitude ono hundred and
seventeen degrees west about 1,000
miles from where his vessel was burned.
Tho hopo bo had cherished so long
that ho would bp "alilo to '" mako vtho

he could ,ouly go beibro ,th6 wind, and
he was now obliged , to,, attempt ttho
best thing tho Bonth-east trades could
do for him blow him to the -"AinorL
