Itititor Citizen: Some one suggests
that our depleted exchefiuer may he re
plenished at this financial institution, but
we scorn the Silvester) necessity, anil
rather rejoice in being once more in Amer
ican waters, looking forward with (rood
hoiic of reaching our native shores on
Tuesday next, and nr. we may he delayed
by officious custom house officers will
have this ready for speedy mailing, to
give you an account of our voyiige,
which has liccii full of incident.
Our last told you of our visit to Bellas'.
and to Lome, from which latter place wc
sailed on Saturday night, the 7th iust.,
and regretted that darkness should shut
out the lovely conns of Ireland and Scot
land. We passed Inislrahull, the last
point of laud, about midnight, and on
awaking early Sunday nn lining could see
Tt'tthing but rolling waves on all sides.
A head wind made our good ship pitch
severely, and most of her passengers
groan sadly with seasickness. As usual
we are exempt and can only pity the suf
ferings that we know nothing of from
exK'i-iencc. Very lew respond to meal
liells, of which favored few we always
The State of Nebraska is far more com
fortable in all respects than the Nevada
more roomy, far cleaner, nice deck, and
eating tolerable, which on the other was
not endurable, l'asseugers who have
crossed by other lines say that this is as
good as any, which surprises us much.
Everything is better, with one possible
exception how much we inissour former
fellow passengers. What would we not
give for an hour's chat with pleasant
Mrs. Von Bulow and a lesson Irom kind
Mrs. Brodnax ; an opportunity to com
pare notes with our dear young ladies
and to soothe their aching heads to the
best ol our poor ability. Above all, how
on this Sunday we miss our own dear
Dr. Marshall and the sweet service he
would give us. Never have we so realized
the want of a ritual as on this Sunday.
Four persons undertake to have prayers.
The first prays lor the captain, each
officer, the engineer and stokersand stew
arris ( fortunately these are not the rude
rascals of the Nevada), all the cabin
passengers, and then turned us over to
the second brother, who repeated all the
all lounge carelessly along the decks,
which are kept so clean, that those wh
wish may stretch their lazy limbs and
sprawl at length.
The listing of the cargo lias been rem
edied, and the Nebraska dashes along on
an even keel, and rejoices our homesick
heart each noon, with a record of more
than three hundred miles.
The awful bugbear of an American cus
tom house officer now looms up to our
anticipations. We cannot inriire how
long his meddlesomeness may detain us;
but hoie not long, and that noon will
hud us conilortably bathing awav the

NORFOLK NAVY VAKII,
(.OWN I P,
first hail said and luckily mannged to get
in "thcsteerage"asa happy afterthought :
otherwise the Almighty might have for
gotten more than half of His children on
this ship. The third brother then tried
his hand, and complimented the other
two with a prayer "for every one now
on this floating palace" (heaven save tin
mark), while the fourth had so little orig
inality as to suggest that heonly wanted
what the other three had already told
the Almighty that He ought to do. How
we did wish for good Dr. Cameron Leeds
and his earnest I'resbvterian prayers out
ol a book and his l?w plain, common!
sense words to strengthen our minus anil
refresh our souls.
On Sunday night wc were roused by the
scrcamsofa woman, and learned that her
husband had suddenly died of heart dis
ease, leaving hern widow with three little
children. So it followed that on Monday
afternoon we participated in that most
impressive ceremony, a burial at sea. At
1 o clock we assemble on deck, heads nn
covered and eyes moist with sympathy;
mc puiung engine is sucui wuiie inc cap
tain reads the committal service of the
Church of England, ami the body of "our
brother" is covered with the mantle of
waters, and quickly sinks to its long
uonie, uierc iu rest in nopes oi me resur
rection morn, wnen the earth and the
sea shall give up their dead.
Monday evening was to all apea ranee
calm and peaceful, but an old tar warned
us to look out for a squall. And true
enough, at midnight our ship did roll
most terribly, and not accustomed to
sleep standing on our iiead wc abandon
the effort and listen to the howling gale
and the scurrying footsteps along the
deck, which should have been above us
but was in fact at our side. As soon as
possible we clambered forth and eeied
out. What n sight greeted our eyes. The
sails torn to rags and flapping frantic
ally ; the sailors struggling bravely
against difficulties that scan insurmount
able; the wind fairly howling, the rain
driving most furiously. But above all,
the sea oh, the marvelous, angry sea!
How it had altered its couiiLenance in a
few short hours! From a peaceful blue
" it had become a furious green, dark al
most to blackness, while streaksol white
belted the mighty waves as far as the
eye could reach. It seemed some savage,
llgcnsil animal, sccKiug 10 uevour lis
nrcv. How small we seemed as we clung
to the door and saw the gunwale sink
under the water time and time
again. Within, what tremendouscrushes
of crockery and lamps, and of trunks
sliding and falling about. Our ladies
were calm and collected, and if they felt
scared certainly concealed it, mid we tried
to follow theirexample; but it wasindectl
a long day, ulthough wc tried to shorten
it by pretended apiK'tite for meals. The
plates and dishes would crash to the floor
as last as placed on the tame, and only
by holding one in hand and licing hclH'd
by the struggling stcwardscould we keep
up the pretense. We have long wished to
see a storm at sea ; now we a requite sat
isfied. Our captain bravely held his post
on the bridge, and guided by the Captain
of our salvation, managed his ship so as
to weather the gale, but the cargo is so
shifted that the deck has not resumed its
level, but cants uncomfortably to one
side. At night the moon and stars shone
forth, and all was at peace once more.
Among the passengers we are glad to
meet Mr. Fred N. Thaver, the father of
our kind friend Mrs. C. A. Moore, who is
returning after escorting his wife and
daughters to Europe.
Our adventures are not yet over and a
ripidly falling temperature-warns the
captain of the proximity of a dangerous
neighjior. an iceberg, long before it is
visible, but at length it comes into view,
and a beautiful sight it was; a hill of
oure white ice, with irregular jagged ton,
some two hundred feet high above the
water, and some five hundredjeet square
in surlace, at least so we judge it to be,
as we sail past, nt a distance oftwoniiles.
and very glad indeed we are tohavegone
beyond us chilling innuence, and to bask
as we are doing to-day in the warm sun
that reminds us of our dear balmy South
