Twenty-Four Days of Suffering in An
Open Boat Prayer Repent
Nkw York, September 20. Cable
grams from Loudon to-day announce the
arrival at Southampton of Kdmund
Brooks and F.dwm Stephen, scamau and
mate of the Ill-fated yacht, Mignonette.
Stephens was greatly prostrated, but
Brooks was able to furnish a complete
account of the most horrible experience
ever known to tbe sea. The ttory ot
Brooks reads like a tale of the vampires
and has created the greatest Interest la
this city. The seaman said:
1IIK MIO.VONKTTK '
proved a capital sea boat. Trior to July
5th, the day she wn lost, the wind had
been hard rid shifty, but hho rode out
the gale admirably. At four o'clock In
the afternoon of that day Captain Dudley
cal'.ed tbe watch myself, and Mr. Steph
enthe boy Barker sharing the watch
with the skipper. Barker had gone down
to wet the tea, of which we we;eallto
partake when we hove to. He had ju.it
come up, when Mr. Stephens called,
"Book out!" and I saw a tre
mendous sea, reaching, I should
think, quito half way up to our
masthead, comitr.: down upon us. The
Captain and Barker had held on to the
main boom to leeward, and the mainsail,
being furled, had broke the force of the
sett upon them. Mr. Stephens held on
by the tiller ropes. When the sea had
pa.-seJ Stephens almost direct. y said.
"Oh, my God! her hides are stove in!1'
The Captain ordered the boat out. I
he.ped get the boat out. Iu fact, I was
able nearly to throw her out myself. We
got in Stephens, 1 and Barker and
called several times to' the Captain to
come on board, and he presently did so,
8I.VKI.NU IN VI VK MIX ITES
after she was struck. We then found
our boat bad been stove In on tbe port
side, and he leaked a great deal; but I
stopped It aa well as I coaid with a piece
of waste I found on the bottom boards,
and this kept tbe water out till the morn
ing, when Captain Dudley mado it more
secure. Banter took the shipwreck very
kindly, believing that we should soon see
land: but of course the rtstof us knew
bettor than that. ' lie was a nice, steady
aud good boy as good a boy, In fact, as
I ever sailed with In my life. We did
cot open our first tin of turnips till
threo days after the wreck, having
eaten nothing at all In the mean
time. We knew the tins con
tained only turnips, for I had acted
as a sort of cook on board the Mignon
ette. On tbe fifth day out I was steer
ing, and saw a turtle swimming almost
to windward of us; in fact, we had al
most passed it when 1 saw it. Its head
was some distance out of the water,
and I pointed it ont to I he others. I
aud the Captain puled the boat's bead
to sea, and Mr. Stephens got hold of
the creature by the fins aud turned It
over. I let go the fore oue, aud, al
though It was a pretty good-sized fish,
It came on as light as a fly. The turtle
lasted us till the twelfth day. We ate
everything, skin and all, throwing the.
shell overboard. If wo saw a little
bit of the turtle fat lying about that
had been left, wc picked It up and
I'ARKKR, TILE HOY,
had several times expressed a desire to
driuk the sea water, and I and the other
two strongly warned him against such a
course, saying that if he did so it would
kill him, but his reply always was, "I
must drink something." One morning
I think we must then have been fifteen or
sixteen days out, but I cau't remember
exactly about five o'clock, Dickey told
us ho had drank tbe bailer, which would
hold quite a quart, empty, and half full
again. Ileh.d been gradually getting
weaker, and was, In fact, the we kest of
us all. The salt water put his inside out
of order, and ho suffered very much from
diarrhoea, being at times In an agony of
paiu fr in this cause, aud we all thought
he wquUI ule. lie appeared a', times o
be delirious; he would lie m the bottom
of tho boat and try to sleep, and If ho
went off, when ho woke up hi would say
he wanted to ship. To get n loa'd a
ship was all I ever heard li ra expr s-s a
wish to do. I sa d to him several times:
"Cheer up, Dickty, It wll a 1 come
riibt," ana the Captain aud Stevens did
all they could iu tho same way. We
had si veral tl.no i spok n between tho
hre of us about casting lots as to who
should i e kilbd, and Barktr had heard
tiiis, but I aui Mr. Stephens would not
hear of it, aud said that if we were to d o
ALL DIE TOUETHEn.
Excepting Barker, Mr Stephens suffered
more than any of us. He was seized
with pains Internally, aud his legs were
so much (swollen that he could hardly
move. One night ho was so bad that I
thought ho was going to die, and took
hold of his hand, and wo prayed together
to the Almighty to save us. July 20tti
when Barker's llfo was taken, was a very
fine day. Excepting a little piece of
the skin of the turtle, with a little drop
of water wo had caught iu a storm
which passed over our heads, we had had
nothing for eight days. Dick was lying
in the bottom of the boat, groaning with
pain; but he never said anything to
lead us to Fupposo that bis life was a
burden to him. I believe the captain and
Stephens had spoken about it in the
night, though nothing had been said to
me directly or Indirectly of any intention
to kilt the boy, and Mr. Stephens, I bo
lieve, would never have consented to it.
I had been at tho helm three or four
hours, and was lying la the bows ot the
boat; and Stcphous made signs to me
which I undt rstood to nieau that tho
Captain Intended to take tho boy's llfo, at
ho was dying. I believe he was dying,
and if he had not been killed, I have not
tbe slightest doubt we should all have
died. I did not see the deed done. I had
my oil-skin coat over my head trying to
get to sleop, ai d I was not aware when it
was to happen. All I heard wa the cap
lain say to Mr, Stephen i
"HOLD HIS FEET,"
and I uncovered my hoad and then saw
the boy was dead. 1 fainted away for a
minute or two, and when I came to I
saw the captain and Mr. StcpUens drink
ing tbe blood which was running from
his neck. I said, "Give me.a drop,"
but it was very nearly all gone, but what
I had ' as quite congealed. I f It quite
strong alter that iu fact, we all made
u-ie of the expression that we were quito
different men. I went aft and steered
for two ok threo hours, I don't know ex
actly how long. Captain Dudley aud
Stephens cut off tho boy's clothes and
threw them overboard. It wits a horrible
sight, aud no mistake. I aud tho cap
tain. FED O.V THE IIODV,
and so did Mr. Stephens occasionally,
but he had very little. We lived on It
for four days, and wo ate a good deal I
should think quite half the body be
fore we were picked up, and I can
say that wc partook of it with as much
relish as ordiuary food. Wo wire picked
up on the 2'Jlh day out. I was steering
the boat about half-past six In the
mornlnu', as uear as I can guess, but
we had no watch. I saw a sail but
did uot at first kuow what it was, for
I had been sitting down talking
to myself and praying to the Al
mighty to rescue us from death, as
our sufferings from thirst were so hor
rible. When Mr. Stephens and tho Cap
tain "got up," I said: "Oh, my God,
here's a ship coming stralgat for us."
We all prayed together out loud that she
would uot miss us, each promising to
lead a different life to what wo had done
if tho Almighty would only give us the
strength to reach the vessel. We put our
sail, which was made out of Stephens'
shirt, down, as the bark was a little to
windward, and pulled as well as we
could a little way. I should think she
was four or five miles off when we sight
ed her, and, as she came cLjwu upon u.,
HOISTED HIE SI1IKT,
and signaled as well as he was able, for
he had not much strength to hold It up.
Quito an hour and a half was passed lu
this dreadful suspense, for we were
afraid, being still to leeward, that the
bark would not see us. We at last saw
her keep away from the wind, and then
wc feit that she had seen us, and were
very much rejoiced, and all thanked Go I
for His mercy. As we got close along
side I took both oars, being tho strong
est. The captain ciugbt the rope and
mado a turn, a well as be was able,
round the fore thwart, Mr. Stephens being
aft. The latter sang out, "Oh, Captain, for
God's sake, help us. We have beej
twenty-four days and have had i.othlng
to eat or drink. Help us o t board." The
Captain ot te bark m .de a reply In Ger
man, which I couU not understand.
Capttln Dudley a so haled him. Two
o the ir w came dowu and made the
boat fast, and go" ropes arou id and lift
ed u on board, for we were 8 weak we
cou d not c imb tbe ship's side. I took
ho d of the ch in plates and scramb ed
up as well a I cou d, and tho carpenter
then carried mo across the deck to the
place whre Mr. Stephen was lyiuij.

charge of Captal Dudley. They all

THE MATE'S ACCUC.VT.'
Edwin Stepheus, who is the son of
the late Captain Itichard Stephens of
Southampton, late; of the Isle of Wight
Company's service, on his arrival home
yesterday furnished some Interesting de
tails. He said: Our rights were the
worst time; they seemed never to end;
we dreaded them very much. We had
now the longest luD-rval without food or
water, viz., eight days without food and
five without water, "with the exception
mentioned. The lad dying before our
eyes, tho longing for his blood came
upon us, and on Friday morning, the
I'Oth day of our being cast away, the
master hastened bis death by bleeding
him. Iu a minute all was over. I will
leave you to imagine how we subsisted
on the body until Tuesday, July 2Uth, the
twenty-fourth day of our being in the
boat, when we were picked up by tho
German bark Montezuma, of Hamburg,
Captaiu'Tremonsen, bound to Falmouth,
from whom we received every Kindness.,
We suffered a great deal for some days
afterward. The extremliies seemed to
have entirely lost life. We had just beers
in the boat from July 5, at 5 p. in., until
July 20, at 10 a. m., nearly twenty-four
