ON A LEE SHORE:
Story of Old Ironaldi s, by an Kye-Wlt-nesa.
It was at the close of a Btorrnj daj,
in the year 1835, when the gallant fri
gate Constitution, under the command
of Captain Elliott hhTinjr, on boavd
Kilward Livingston, Jlinwter at the
Court of Krancu, and his family, and
Jtiannnl by nearly five hundred nouls
drew war to "the chopn"of the English
Channel. For four days she had been
beating down from Plymouth, and on
the tiftli, at evening, she made her last
tack from the French coast.
The watch was set at eight, P. M.
The captain came on deck soon after,
and having asoertnitind the bearing of
Scilly, gave orders to keep the ship
'full ami bye," remarking at the same
time, to the ofliuer of the deck, that he
might make the light on the lee beam;
but, he staled, he thought it more than
probable that he would pass it without
weing it. Ho then "turned in." aa did
most of the idlers, and the starboard
At a quarter pa.-t nine, P. JL, the
ship headed west by compass, . when
the call of "Light O! ' was beard from
the fontopsail yard.
"Where away?11 asked the officer of
"Three points on the lee bow," re
plied the look-out man, which the un
professional reader will readily under
tlerstund to menu very nearly straight
ahead. At this moment the captain ap
peared and took the trumpet.
"Call all bands," u bis '.mmediate
"All hands!" wlm'V 1 the boatswain,
with the long, shrill surunw'a familiar
to the ears of all who have over been
oil board of a man-of-war.
'All hands!" screamed the boat- .
swain's mates; and ere the last echo
died away all but the sick were upon
The ship was staggering through a
heavy swell from the Hay of Biscay;
the gale which had been blowing sev
eral days had increased to a severity
that was not to be made light of. The
breakers where Sir Cloudesley Shovel :
and his fle.et were destroyed, in the days ;
of Queen Anne, sang their song of
death lieforc, aud the Dead Man's ;
ledgi replied in hoarser notes behind
us. To go ahead seemed to be doatb,
and to attempt to go about was sure
The iireit thing that caught the eye of
Hie captain was the furled mainsail,
which he bad ordered to be carried
throughout the evening the hauling
ftp of which, contrary to the last order ;
that ho had given on leaving the deck, j
had caused the ship to fall off to lee
ward two points, anil had thus led her i
into a position on "a lee shore," upon ,
which a strong gale was blowing her,
in which the chance of safety appeared '.
to the stoutest nerves almost hopeless. '
That sole chance consi ited in standing
on, to carry us through the breakers of.
Scilly, or by a close gram along their
outer lodge. Was thin destined to be
the end of the gallant old ship, conse
crated by so many a prayer and bless
ing from the heart of a nation?
"Why is the mainsail up, when I or
dered it set?" cried the captain, in a
"Finding that she pitched her bows ,
under, I took it. in, under your general
order, sir, that the officer of the deck
should carry sail according to bis dis
cretion," replied the lieutenant in com
mand. "Heave the log," was tha prompt,
command to the master's mate,
The log was thrown. '
"How fast does she go?"
"Fivo knots and a half, sir."
"Board tho main tack, sir."
"Sho will not bear it," said thoofllcer
of the deck.
"Hoard tho main tack!" thundered
the captain. "Kocp Iter full and bye,
"Aye, aye, sir!"
Tho tack was boarded.
"Haul aft the main sheet!" shouted
tho captain, and aft it went like the
spreading of a scabird's wing, giving
the huge sail to the gale.
"Give her tho leo helm when she
goes into the sea!" criod the captain.
"Aye, aye, sir! she has it," growled
out the old sea-dog at the binnacle.
"Right your helm; keep hor full and
"Aye, aye, sir!" full and by she Is,"
was the prompt answer from the helm.
"How fast docs she go?"
"Eight knots and a half, sir.'1
"How bears tht? light?"
"Nearly abeam, sir."
"Keep her away half a point"
"Aye, aye, sir.' V
"How fast does she go?"
"Nine knots, sir."
"Steady, sol" returned the. captain.
DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN; SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1881.
"Steady," answered the helmsman,
and all was tho silence of the grave
upon that crowded deckexcept the
howling of tho storm for a space of
time that seemed to my imaglnatioa
almost an age.
It was a trying hour with us; unless
we could carry sail so as to go at the
rate of nino knots an hour, we must of
necessity dash upon Scilly; and who
ever touched thoso rocks and lived dur
ing a storm? The sea ran very high,
the rain fell in sheets, the sky was one
black curtain, illumined only by the
faint light which was to mark our de
liverance, or stnnd a monument of our
destruction. The wind had got above
whistling; it came in puffs, that flat
tened the waves, and mado our old
frigate settle to her bearings, while
every thing on board seemed cracking
into pieces. At this moment the car
penter reported that the left bolt of
the weather fore-shroud had drawn.
"Get on the luffs, and set tberu on
all the weather-shrouds. Keop her at
holm, quartermaster, and ease her in
sea;1 were the orders of the captain.
The luffs were soon put upon the
weather shrouds, which of course re
lieved the chains and chacncls, but
many an anxious eye was turned toward
tho remaining bolts, for upon them de
ponded the masts, and upon the masts
depended the safety of the shipfor
with one foot ot canvas less she could
not live fifteen minutes.
Onward plunged the overladen fri
gate, and at every surge she seemed
bent upon making tho deep the sailor's
grave, and her live-oak sides bis coQin
of glory. She had been fitted out at
Boston when the thermometer was bo
low zero. Her shrouds, of course,
therefore slackened at every strain, and
her unwieldy masts (for she had those
designed for the frigate Cumberland, a
much larger ship) seemed ready to
Jump out of her. And now, while- all
was apprehension, another bolt drew!
and then another! until at last our
whole stay waa placed upon a single
bolt less than a man's wrist in circum
ference. Still the good iron clung to
the solid wood, and bore us alongside
the breakers, though in a most fearful
proximity to them.
This thrilling incident has never, I
believe, been noticed in public, but it
is the literal fact which I make not
the slightest attempt to embellish. As
we galloped on -for I can compare our
vessel's leaping to nothing else the
rocks seemed very near us. Dark as
was the night, the white foam scowled
around their black heads, while the
spray fell over us, and tho thunder of
the dashing surge sounded like the
awful kneil that the ocean was singing
for the victims it was eager to engulf.
At length tho light bore upon our
quarter, and the broad Atlantic rolled
its white caps before us. During this
time all were silent, each officer and
man was at his post, and the bearing
and countenance of the captain seemed
to give encouragement to every person
on board. With but a bare possibility
of saving the ship and those on board,
he placed his reliauceupon his nautical
skill and courage, and by carrying the
mainsail when in any other situation it
would have been considered a suicidal
act, he weathered the lee shore and
saved the Constitution.
The mainsail was now hauled up by
light heart!" and strong hands, the jib
and spanner taken in, and from the
light of Scilly the gallant vessel, under
close-reefed topsails and main trysails,
took her departure, and danced merrily
over tho deep toward the United States.
"Pipe down," said the captain to tho
first lieutenant, "and splice the main
Pipo down," echoed tbejtirst lieuten
ant to the boatswain.
"Pipo down," whistled the boat
swain to the crew, and "pipe down" it
Soon the "Jack of tho Dust" held his
levee on the main gun-deck, and lue
weather-beaten tars, as they gathered ,
about the grog tub, and luxuriated up
on a full allowance of Old Kye, forgot
all their perils and fatigue.
How near the rocks did we go?"
said I to one of the master's mates the
next morning, lie mado no reply, but
taking down his chart, showed me a
pencil lino between the outside shoal .
and the Light-House Island, which
must have been a small strait for a
fisherman to run his smack through in .
good weather by daylight.
1 went upon deck; tho sea was calm, j
a gentle breeze was swelling our can-'
va-s from mainsail to royal, the Isles of !
Scilly had sank in tho eastern waters, :
and the clouds of the dying storm were j
rolling off in broken masses to the ,
northward and westward, like tho fly-j
ing columns of a beaten army.
I have been in many a galo of wind, ;
and have passed through scones of(
great danger; but never, before or
since, have 1 experienced an hour so
terrific as that when the Constitution ;
was laboring, . with thu lives of hvej
hundred men hanging on a single small ,
iron bolt, to weather Scilly, on the ;
night of tho 11th of May, 18:15.

They had a terrible tim at a wed
ding up at Petaluraa the other day,
and which oily goes to show how the
smallest drawbacks will sometimes take
the stiffening out of tho swellest occa
sion. It seems that the ceremony was a
very grand affair, indeed. There were
eight bridesmaids, and the church was
crowded from pit to dome, as the dra
matic critics would say. But, when
they got to tho proper place in the cer
emony, and the groom began feeling
around for the ring, ho discovered that
it wasn't on hand. After the minister
had scowled at the miserable wretch
for awhile the latter detected that the
magic circlet had slipped through a
hole in his pocket and worked down
iuto his boot. Ho communicated the
terrible fact in a whisper to tho bride,
who turned deadly pale, and was only
kept from hinting by the reflection
that they would inevitably cut the
strings of her satin corsage in case she
"Why don't yon produce the ring?"
whispered the bride's big brother,
hoarsely, and feeling for his pistol, un
der tho impression that the miserable
man was about to back out.
"I can't. It's in my boot," explained
the groom under his breath, his very
hair, rueauwhile, turuing red with mor
tification. "Try and fish it out, somehow hur
ry up!' mumbled the minister behind
"I'll, try," gasped the victim, who
was vory stout; and he put one foot on
tho chancel rail, pulled up his trowsers
leg, and began making spasmodic jabs
with his forefinger for the ring. The ;
minister motioned to the organist to
squeeze out a few notes to till in the ,
time, while a rumor rapidly went
through the congregation to the effect
that a telegram had just arrived prov- :
ing that the groom had four wives liv
ing in the east already.
"I I can't reach it," groaned the !
half married man, in agony. "It won't
"Sit down and take your boot off,
you fool!" hissed the bride's mother,
while the bride herself moaned pile
ously and wrung hor hands.
There was nothing left; so the suffer
r sat down on tho floor ahd began to .
wrestle with his boot which was natur
ally new and tight, while a fresh ru
mor got under way to the fleet that
the groom was beastly tight and in
sisted on paring his cuius.
As the boot came finally off, its
crushed woarer endeavorod, unsuccess
fully, to hide a trade dollar hole in the ,
heel of his slocking; noticing which
tho parson, who was a humorous sort
of a sky-contractor, said, grimly s
"You seem to bo getting married just
in timo, my young friend?'
Aud tho ceremony proceeded with
the party of the first part standing on
ono leg, trying to hide his well-vontl- i
latod foot under the tail of his coat,
and appropriately muttering "Darn it!" :
