Oakland Crook, Nov. 25, I8i)2.
Sinco my lottor to tho Bulletin of
July IB, lSi)2, thoro has boon littlo to
chronicle that is any difloroiit from
tho usual whaling season with tho
oxcoiition of tho unusual ahsenco of
ico and oxtroinoly warm woathor in
tho months of July and August.
Tho heavy lloos of ieo that, woro
so menacing to tho whaling Hoot in
tho sprint woro driven to tho far
north, where they in time succumb
ed to tho warm rays of tho near set
ting sun. Wo sailed from Port Clarence-
and pushed north as fast as tho
winds permitted, rounding Point
Barrow with not a single cake of ice
in sight, and on to tho eastward to
that littlo known land which lies to
tho eastward of l'oint Barrow. It
was not until wo had reached
Franklin's Kut urn Koofthntwo en
countered any ice, and this was so
"rotten" (as tho whalemen term ico
which is melting fast) that wo easily
pushed through it; it being 011I3- a
few miles wide and much broken up.
Wo passed out of U. S. waters and
into Her Britannic Majesty's with
out, seeing ico or whalors.
On tho thiid day wo woro in
British waters wo woro gratified by
tho call of a stinker oir our leo beam
which required some protty ma
neuvering to distract tho attention
of tho bark Alaska which was in
companj' with us and nearer to tho
dead whale than wo woro. Wo suc
ceeded in getting a boat down and
fastening to him before the bark's
people knew what was up. Wo ran
down to tho whale and tho officers
woro beginning to calculate the
amount of bono in his head, when
tho dreadful stenoh of decaying ilesh
told us wo were close to him. To
our, great disgust ho turned out to
bo' a -"calf" that had been killed by
tho Bonanza's boats, thoy having
mistaken him for a grown whale.
Wo ran alongside another an hour
later that had been cut in two b
some othor ship, and as tho body was
still warm ho had been killed tho
previous evening. At 10 a.m. wo had
tho pleasure of hearing the first cry
of "Blowl" from the crow's-nest of
tho Percy Edwaid, but thoiowero
so many vessels around and so 111:1113
boats down that wo did not lowor.
Anj'how wo did not see 0110 that was
at all inclined to linger. Thoy weio
all going fast, putting 0110 in mind
of tho clerk of a Honolulu business
house running with the usual lato
lottor to catch tho steamer.
After sighting Herschel island wo
in Honolulu and his sad death will
bo quito a blow to them, as ho was
hjghly esteemed by thoso who know
him. Wo encountered a hurricane
in -It North, which was eoniething

Notico to tho Public.
The Jfoue.il People 0 Jfonohiln:
Tho Shirt Question is still in the
minds of tho public and 1 wish to
make a standing .statement in regard
to tho Lulling-.) olinson matter. On
or about tho 2d day of December a
lot, or old sluits was lolt in my olliuo
with instructions to repair them by
ono signed Liming. 1 did repair
tho shirts, and a few days later this
man Lulling, accompanied by his
wife, called and brought another
shirt to bo repaired, and also asking
to see tho first lot of shirts. I show
ed them and thoy woro both well
pleased and said tho job was woU
done, and told 1110 that tho China
man would call on Monday and takb
them to bo re-laundried. This was
on Saturday previous to Monday
mentioned, and when 1 finished tho
last shirt I brought tho bill to
Luning at his office, llo got oxciled
but I did not scare, and 1 simply
told him I would liko to collect
11101103 fr m3' work. Ho used somo
very hot words and said 1 had a
cheek to ask for my money then,
and ho said ho would ruin me, but
still I did not scare 1 told Luning
in presence of a witness that ho was
wolconio to call at 1113' place of busi
ness, whoro 1 have a room enclosed,
and ho could try on tho shirts there,
but ho would not do it. No doubt
Mr. Luning thought ho had dead
cas3 game, but ho was liko tho man
that fell out of tho balloon ho was
simply not in it. 1 will say this,
that in any case I make now shirts
ami if t'i03 do not give ontiro satis
faction 1 will alter them, make now
shirts, or refund tho 11101103. Can
aii3 porsonyo more? 1 will also
keep in repair all shirts niado by mo
for two years freo of charge, for T
am as quiet, as a lamb.

111 compaii3 with tho
mado an effort to
Bathurst, a point never before reach
ed b'r steamer or sailing vessel, but
woro unablo to on account. of head
winds. We, however, went north a
fow hundred miles, but not seeing
aii3 whales shaped our conrso for
Herschel Island. Jf ever tho North
Polo is to bo reached 1802 was tho
year to do it in, as thoio was no ico
to hinder 0110 from going to Lat. 80
N. But as wo woro not looking for
tho north polo but for bowheads wo
did not attempt it. Yet wo woro so
close to the Magnetic Polo that ono
of "ltitchor's" oompass-os would not
move till tho Bhip's course was alter
ed four points, and then would go
with a run and make the ollieers bo
liovo that thoy woro poor judges of
the points of a compass b3 going
four or fivo points tho othor way.
My observations of tho eccon
tricitios of tho compass woro soon
cut short by whales being around.
Wo lowered day after day and at
last succeeded 111 capturing one, a
female, making a desperate struggle
for her life, but gunpowder and ton
ito bombs woro too much for hor,
and after a I hour !30 niinuto strug
gle sho rolled over on hor back dead
with eight bombs in hor. Sho had
succeeded in scaring somo of tho
crows of tho three boats into such a
state that ono 3oung Englishman
was on tho point of jumping ovor
board, but ho was detained by the
officer of tho boat, as ho was needed
at his oar to keep tho boat clear of
tho whale's "llukes" (tail), as sho did
thrash them around violently for a
fow minutes in hor death struggle,
spreading groat consternation among
the "greonhands." After cutting tho
whale's head off and getting it stow
ed below, wo began to work west
with a number of steamers, tho rest
of tho sailing vessels having gone
west somo liino before.
Wo passed Point Barrow in a gale
of wind from tho northenst, amid a
dreadful snow storm, barely seeing
tho land as we passed on our way
toward Herald Island. We suc
ceeded in capturing another whale
which did not afford us much oxcito
mont, as tho boatsteoror (a Hawai
ian) who struck him seemed to know
just whoro to put his tomb and iron,
which was the death of Mr. Whale.
He only made a fow violent flour
ishes with his llukes in close prox
imity to tho boat and then sounded
to die Jf) fathoms under water. Wo
woro not in luck this season, only
having caught two whales making
J1800 lbs. of bono. The length of
our last whale 1)3' actual measure
ment was ill foot from tho extreme
tip of his llukes to his noso. We
kept off for homo on Oct 7, tho day
after the wreck of the bark Helon
Mar, Captain Thaxtor, in which tho
captain and all his crew with tho
exception of live men wore lost.
Captain Thaxtor had many friends
