Baa?.ly, aa July _<' and 28, Lieutaoanl Qarlington

Had the Yantie, however, hern at Littleton

ca-.-, .I a* '. illy obeyed bis orders, neither

complete failure of the mission of tbe Proteus and

that th.- .antic properly fulfilled her duty
as a tender to th. ! sith which she

retain a small supply of coal on tbs coast, of
"talana, but lim caunot be relied upon.' 1 sai I vd
1 from St. John's with 197 tons of coal below and ou
deck; the Proteus carried between 500 and OOO
tons. Tlie Yautic, steaming with six tires, BIB-OB
au average speed of U*_ to 7 kuots per hour in
smooth water. The Protons steaming at full speed
(wh;ch Captain Piko told inn seed to do) made
about B*| BO B knots per honr. On tho run to God
havn, under sail alone, I kept well to the east?
ward to avoid the Labrador ice. Tho Proteus,
home sixty miles west of our track,
nader steam pushed through a stream of leo
for live hours, which was of a heavier nat urn than
they ate an- BOCl?tO?ted to nie.-t OB that coast, and
which tdie officers stated could not have been pene?
trated by UM Yautic.
" The boilers of tho vessel were in an unreliable
condition when she was ordered to tit for the North?
ern cruise; repairs were pushed Bight and day to
hasten bat departure, but not being fal?SBd on sail?
ing day, tba aaaliaial tm umiiphillin ibm work was
put on board. Repairs were cuiiliniied in i*t. John's,
but on our passage to QodhavB they wara discon?
tinued, as it was desirable to have steam-power
ready to use in case <>f necessity. Having arrived
at (lodhavn, and knowing that from thence north?
ward onr iniin dependence would be on the
engines, 1 determined to get the boilers
in lair condition before leaving. Thia
took six days. One day was then taken to gel
coal from the lui*? Peru, which had ju-t arrived:
then thick, stormy weather set m. which delayed
onr departure two days. I arrived in Qodhsvn
with 170 t.'iis ol e..i.i. In these narrow sea- 1
thought th.- .ship able t" carry more than when she
left M. John, and deemed it prudent f..r future
operations to provide a.s much as possible. For tins
pnrpnse 1 went to Ritteubauk, wnere twenty tons
were procured, and thence to Kndliaet, where the
mij.ply was completed. Our bnukers and decks
were then full, aud being now aa well prepared us I
was ulile, duly -'?> wc proceeded northward.
"My uistru. ii .naalso stated thal: ' You will rely
to a certain extent upon the Information which is
firen yon by the li.iuish authorities al Disooand
Iperuavik aa to the probable movements of Ice,
eic.' 1 visited Upcruavik to obtain this informa?
tion, arriving al u? i>. m. July 23, By.minga
: in, ..nd continued, with slight ifl
i-rmis-iion, until tbe 31st, when it cleared, and 1
'...lt" sea.
"N.i time waa lo t, aud no unnecci ary delay waa
made at any point. The Proteus, carrying a large
supply of coal and steaming al full speed, had only
to delay to obtain the stores Lit at Qodhsvn last
year, and a nativ. dogdrivcr from Disco fiord. Bbc
then went north without stopping, Had I sailed
(rom Qodhava at tho at?oe ii, te as the Proteus,
[es being unable to keep np with ber, Iabonld
have arrived al Littleton Island, 1,000 milesdistant,
with my coal supply reduced t" about seventy-five
