the nor'west, the watchful officer's ex
perience 1 eye is arrested by a small,
clear, blue speck, like tho eye of the
storm king penetrating through the
rolling mass of vaporous cloud. 'A
shift of wind, eh?' he mentally asks.
Ha! was that faint gleam not bgt tiling?
It was. No time to lose. 'Up with
the helm!' The blue spot expands.
A thousand others quickly appear, dap
plmg the sky midway above the hori
zon to the zmith. Stars seem to
rush as if in eager haste to wim<ss the
couflict of the elements. Tha cold
temperature of the approaching north
ern blast wreathe the misty vapor into
fantastic shapes, which impart a scen
ic effect ©t weird-like beauty to the am
phitheater of boiling ocean bilow.
Nearer, still nearer,swoops the mighty
Titan lorce, grasping tho south we>t
bilows by their snowy manes and
flinging Ligh the silvery spray in mad
confusiou. Shrieking, howling, bia
sing it come*. Our bark is within
its grasp. A momentary lull; tho can
vas flaps to tho mast; then, with a
fierce o'ermastering spring it is upon u*.
Tiie ship was paid off before tho wind,
bringing her lee broadside to the sen.
Down, down her lee gunwale is pressed
below the briny waves, which rushing
over the deck, crashing bulwarks and
sweeping the longboat from her lash
iqfls. It was a moment of human help
lessness. Tbe crew are washed along
the deck or clinging convulsively to tho
weather rigging. A sourd—a welcome
one—like to the roll of musketry, is
heard above the roaring din of tbe
elements. It is the bvllowiug canvas
torn into shreds and snapping in the
wind. Tbe struggling sbip was reliev
ed 'She rights! she rights, boys!'
Each eye is turned aloft, and • 'th*nk
God, the marts still ttamt,' is felt if
not expressed. Kallying their sinking
energies the crew succeed iu laying the
vessel to under her main spencer and
loretopmast staysail. Tired nature
c< uld do no more. Utteily ethaujted
they dragged themselves below, leav
ing the first and secoi d officers, with
the dftiky cook and two apprentice
hoys, to bend and make s»il, as btft
they could, 4 A sweet littlo cherub
sits up aloft who ka*'ps a lookout for

While our bark, the (Jannet, is ly

Brown (Bailie— magistrate), merchant
and shipowner in tbe western metrop
olis of Scotland, reaches his couutry
house and enter d bis private room.

One moment, said XcQoill, interrupt

He says yon promised a five pound
subscription for school* for the freed
slaves. Am Ito give it to him ?
Pshaw ' bother bun and the slaves to
gether; tb»*ir freedom has ruined every
estate iu the West Indies. I declare,
ministers and woin»n are haith alike;
they are everlastingly botching up
some scheme or another ti waste siller,
answered the Bailie, adding in a lower
tone, not without a touch of humor:
You can let him have it though. I Re
lieve they ar* going to propo.e me for

the ministry of wealth.
But heaven all bountiful ever,
brought the (ianuet and her exhausted
crew safe in o port. About • fort
night after her arrival something akin
to the following appeared in the Week,
hj A<bertiser:
Last Sabath day three of the crew
of the Gdunet bark—which we report
ed, some two weeks ago as arriving
jury rigged and her crew in a starved
condition, their provisions having
given out--well on to half seas over
*'wi' the barley tree"—staggered into
tho Ilev, Dr Parker's church, and
seated themselves in a prominent pew.
They behaved tolerably well until the
commencement of the sermon, when
something tickled their fansv, ana
lliey laughed out'ight. Elder Boldie
went to them, and peremptoriy order
ed them to leave the church, an order
which tbey obeyed with as much ala
crity ax if on board of ship. It ap
peared, however, that they had each
deposited a penny piece in the collec*
tin plute at tho door on entering, and
they evidently reasoned that, deprived
of tt:e sermon, they were being defraud
ed of their money. The first sailor,
therefore, as bo passed the plate on
going out picks out his ' penny; the
second did the same, but the third, a
little more modest, perhaps, did not
pick up his, for which bis two ship*
mates so severely chaffed him outside,
that back be went for bis money. This
being perceived by Suuffy Jamie, tbe
old doorkeeper, he instantly snatched
up the plate and ran up the main
aisle towards the vestry door, at the
back of tho pulpit, followed by Jack
shouting: 'Heave to, there, you old
landlubber, till I get my shot. I'm
bio wed if you'll bave it for nothing,'
The sailer overhauled bim by the pul
pit stairs, took bis penny out of tbo
plat" and departed. There was natur
ally considerable excitement in the
kirk, and several started to their feet
to seize the intruder; but the minister,
who has a warm heart towards our set
bovs, cautioned them to keep still, say
ing: 'We are nil of us responsible tor
the condition of these men, aud, per
haps on the great day of account,
those who wallow in the mire of sensu
ality. clothed in purple and fine linen,
may find reason to envy those whose
nntoward lot in this lite condemned
them to seek enjoyment iu a roll in the
gutter.
