In, Carried to Sea A ROMANCE OK THK PACIKIC OCKiN The whaling season was about over on Japan, of which we had a broad hint in the farioas gale* that leveled the pea and made it appear as flat as p. marble floor, wbile the ship was held, with lee-rail in the water, as stationary ai if screwed up in a vice. Therefore, we up-htdm and put away for Cali fornia. After having obtained some water and fresh beef, we took a south erly, course and soon reached that lone island in the midst of the sea called Easter Island. At that time it was said that no white man had ever been ashore on Easter Island—at least not from whal ers or mertdiantmen. The whaleman never attempted to come to any anchor there, but they stood off and on, while the native* brought off their merchan dise by swimming. Our captain and officers placed nc confidence in these wild men, wbc came on board of us in a nude Btat<\ and talked so radidly and so loud, while we could not understand a word they said. Their number increased at every moment, ighilc other swimmer* could be seen from the ship coming frcm every direction. There were now tome sixty or seven ty strong, impulsive fellows on board of us who joined with the sailors i:i pulling the braces, and filled the air with loud shouts while doing so. Their stentorian voices and earnest manner alarmed our captain, who quietly order ed the steward to bring up & dozen muskets and pUco them by the side oi the companion-way. The next movement was to put the ship's bead off shore, and run fiom tlie land, so that the natives might be iu di ed to leave before they hud got too great a distance from home. For some time even this scheme did uot work The savages seemed not to caro how far tbe would have to sw:m before they got back to the island. They became more and more noisy and venturesome, all of which I understood perfectly well to be the natural expression of sound lungs united to good spirits and unreasoning im pulse, but the captain ur.d officers <>( the ship, as well as the old sailors, were seriously alarmed, though I knew nothing about it at the time. Seeing one good-looking young native, who, unlika the rest, wore a slight garmeut about tbe loins, I in vited him down tbe fore-bold, between decks, where was u cask of bread open, and 1 presented bin with a couple k>l biscuit, of which he was extremely I fond. Although wo were gone but live 1 minute*, on returning to the deck I (Uncovered that all the savages whom I had left there were iu the wattr, .swimming back to the island. My tawny companion uttered an ex | e.laination, and I then perceived that I his voice was ucliice the other natives. ! 'le did not leave the ship, and the first mate coining towards us, asked : 'Why don't this fellow go overboard? 1 Is he afraid that he can't swim to shore ?' The young subject of his question thereupon burst into tears. 'lt's a woman ! It's a girl !' cried the mate ; here's a fix. She can't go Ashore, and will be obliged to go to s» a with us.' Feeling as though I was to blame for having detained the 'young lady.' I asked if we couldn't run in and set her ashore. 'No,' said the mate, in a decided tone; 'there's every appearance of a change of wind; if we were driven ashore among these naked devils, we'd And no more mercy than a cat in hell without claws.' In the meantime the girl was in dis tress. Thus expariated, torn from all her relatives, and, perhaps, from her lover, the sailors sypatbized with her Very sincerely. They invited her into the steerage and offered her food. 13ut it remained untouched; she had no appetite, and, iu fact, it was two days before she tasted a morsel. She sat in one spot from day to duy with her eyes cast down, while.occasion ally, a large tear swelled under the lids and rolled down her bosom. But coutinued gocd treatment and the lapse of time at length bad a little effect upon her. She began to nibble at the basin of food with which she bad been regularly supplied when we sat down to our meals; and at the end of a week, she went on deck and looked off at the ocean. She started with surprise and con sternation when she discovered that not a vestage of land was in sight, nothing but one vast waste of water, ceaselessly tumbling and roaring, and for several weeks she was inconsolable. Every morning she was on deck at the earliest glimmer of dawn, watching for the upheaving of Ijer native i>le from the breast ot the ocean. When we neared Cape Horu, and the weather became cold, the looktd wilt fully about ber, not kuowing what it meaut ; but after we bad doubled the cape, and steering uortb, the weather became genial again, she evidently supposed we were returning tu the br.d of her birth. !I*r spirits rose accord ingly, and »be began to learn our lauguage, speaking it with a n.i!odi ous accent. The first mate <»f tbe ship sometime* lingered on the forecastle, or n< ar the windless, to listen to her broken Eng lish, at first Iroui curiosity ; but after awhile bis attention seemed rivited to her discourse, and his countenance ex pressed kindly feelings towards tlu speaker. Finally, it was observed that the officer talked to her apart from the crew; his low tones and the empress© rncut of his manner told the who.e story; be was wooing this daughter of the ocean isle; be was endeavoring to pursaade her to cast in her lot with his for life. She gave him no answer in words, bat looked away from him far out over th«Caea, with a sad and thoughtful ex- SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, IS7S. pression, and, on one or two occasion, a tfar gathered in her ey* by slow <1 ?rcei«, a"d fell splashing cn her bo««)rii. The niato thought she was bomcsiclc. and tried various means to divert the lone tnaid, bnt all seemed to be in vr.;p. She was grateful for his kindness and for the presents which he made her ; bnt whenever he addressed her in the langaage of love, she returned bat the one uniform answer, with «addene countenance she looked away from her interlocutor, far out upon the «ea; as if thinking of her home and of tho«e whom she had left behind her. At length we jjot into the 'ow lati tudes. The weather was hot, and we had several calm days. One afternoon when tho ship was lolling about on the smooth billows,and the sails were idly slatting against t!» • masts, our maiden proposed to have a swim, au oxercue to which kite h*i doubtlem been aca*toaie<i from child hood. No objection wus made, and she plunged into tho ?ei. Sha had scarc ely done so when a large shark wis swimming towards her, his sharp fin cutting the wat r nnd mark inn thecoursa which he took. Now was the time for the mate to exhibit his chivalry. Arming him self with t lance, ho leaped overboard, swam a few strokes, which brought him near the shark, and he then commerc ed awkwardly poking at him with the lance. When whalemen are engaged in cut ting in whales, sharks ar« very plenty; they come and bite off large pieces of blubber, and the officer# drive them off by cutting through the backs of their necks with sharp spades. The hoat sti erer who goes overboard to hook the blubber is surrounded by sharks, so that often they interfear with his work. I have seen him push them aside witii his bands. I never knew a boatsteerer to be bitten by a shark. They prefer tin* whales blubber to human Hesb. Hut the shark now pyir>uing th>: islahd maid was one of the largest kind, known as the bone shark, or man eaters. He paid little attention to the mate, seeming to say, with young Hamlet, •Here's meat more attractive,' as he moved steadily on towards the young girl. She besought the mate to give her the lance, as, winding and turuirg in small circles, she endeavored to avoid the enemy, who became more and more exasperated by her ballling artifices. the mate, forgcttiug the girl, accustomed to swiui far out to sea, must know better how to deal with sharks than he did, continued, stupidly, to make impotent thrusts at; the en emy, until the shark, suddenly plunged was lost to view. It was then that tho maiden exhibit ed trepidation, and struck out in a straight line for the ship, swimming with desperate energy. She had not. got far, however, l>efore her head was seen to sink beneath the waters, and the spot where sho went down wt»s crimsoned with blood. The shark had triumphed; but there can be no doubt that if the mate had given her the lance she would have used it successfully, and the result would have been differ ent. Ropes were thrown to tho mate, who camo on b mrd deathly pale and trembling in every joint. Hut no oue pitied him. Tho sailors grioved long for the loss of their pet, and many were the curses heaped upon tho head of tho lover for not yielding up the lance when she so earnestly requested him to do so. That was the last of our Indian maid. Thus, far from home and among strang ers, perished the favorite of our ship's cotupauy. But long afterwards sailors re turning form tho Pacific Ocean told strange stories of having touched at Easter Island, where, among others who swam off to them, was a tall, young savage, whoso eyes scanned not « nly every one on board, but every hole and cranny of tho vessel, as if searching for something that he had lost. At length he was missed from among the visitors, and the crew of the ship he last boarded mentioned that he bad become 'more like a dead man than a live one—all worn to a skele ton !' As the sailor* could talk to the natives only by signs, they could get no information about the missing young Indian; but there can be little doubt that lie was the lover of our lost maiden -he of whom she thought when, turning away Irorn the protestations of our mate, she looked sadly and thought fully over the tumbling seas, and drop ped o tear in memory of him whom she was destined never to see more. _ . . _i -2L.— —f i WHIDBY ISLAND FARM Xear Oak Harbor, FOR SALE. i il'A ACHES, MOSTLY BEAVKR ,BWAMP j I'M/ Do*<lr>ln«<, »nJ Fifty Acres under (iood Culti vation.
