HOLLINGSWORTn. of dried beans, whveh he distributed amongst us, and a handful 'of which were occasionally thrown over the state-room door of each of the delinquents, some of the ladies even joining in the sport. The rattling jjf the beans on the floor of the sfttte-roorns, produced a magical effect upon the already disturbed mind of their unhappy occu pants ; and scarce a minute had4 elopseU since the last volley, ere we heard the rustling and fumbling of our terrified friends, who hastily assuming the first garments that came to hand in the dark, dashed open the doors, and made their " first appearance " in a raeio-drama, in whose dravialis pcrsdnae, they were to occupy prominent positions. With the utmost difficulty could our laugh ter be suppressed, as these -apparitions came upon the stage. No ghost of Ilamtet's father ever looked the ghost to greater perfection than did Evans, on this memorable occasion. En veloped from the shoulders to the knees in a white coverlet hurriedly torm from his bed, his bare legs terminating in a pair of slippers into which he had thrust his feet, while his black shaggy hair and beard, displayed to perfection, the deathly palor of his features : nor was the appearance of his next door neighbor, O Shany hness, any less remarkable. In his haste and confusion, his pantaloons were non est inventus, so he had to put up with a pair of drawers, his upper regions being decked with a dress coat of the swallow-tail order, bis bullet head decora ted with a red night-cap, a boot on one foot, and a shoe on the other ; he was the personifi cation of "a boy of the O'Shanyhnessy's " thoroughly frightened, and nothing else, that wre ever heard or dreamt of. Oh, for a forty-pencil power to portray that scene ! The jeers and mocking laughter of the crowd of ont-siders, who now openly confessed the trick, and the consternalion depicted in the pale countenances of the sufferers, who could not be persuaded that we were not in the most imminent danger that the hail stones had penetrated to the cab n, nay, into the very berths was not the ship rocking in the ve cradle of a most awful tempest, and were we not about to leave her in tiie boats, deserting without compunction, the only two persons who from illness and -physical -pro sir ntiov , were inca pable of helping themselves ? It was only after the most strenuous exertions that we finally per suaded them the whole was a concerted plan "..-- !....., ,x. tXt we were not in re ality, prepared to It'avethem to tlie.r rate upon the wreck of the old " Ilappahannock." Anger now took the place of the abject fear which had before possessed the vain boasters, when with denunciations " loud and deep," threats of a complaint to Capt. Cushing, (who had' been a quiet and unseen observer, of the whole I affair, through the sky-liht) on the morrow, they beat a hasty retreat to their dens, amidst the united hurras of their pmsecutors. As may readily be imagined, from this time tc the end of the voyage, Evans and O'Shany hnessy had not a moment's peace with the dreadful " council of three." Whilst the incident we relate was transpir ing, the gale without kept on increasing in vio lence, until the ever watchful Capt. Cushing, deemed it prudent to heave his ship to. And even when this manoeuvre had been skiffully and promptly executed, the vessel "pitched" so furiously as to threaten each moment, the loss of one or more of her masts, while now and then, a hnge, foam crested wave would topple over the bows before she had time to rise to the summit of the mountain of water, washing her from stem to stern, and sweeping with its over-powering volume, every thing moveable, from one en,d of the ship to the other. Such was the state of affairs on board the ship " Rappahannock," when we, bidding our jovial friends good night, " turned in," resol ving in our own mind to keep one eye open, so to pieces the quarter boat, cutting the bul warks down to the main deck, and now floated alongside held by the rigging and thumping violently against the side of tha ship. Tho maintop had cut its way clearly through tho Poop-deck, the points of its timbers coming within six inches of the first officer's breast ui he lay in his berth, and as he afterwards de clared, it was the advent of this strange visitor that gave iiim the first intimation of the catus: trophe that had befallen us. The head of the main-mast pinned to the deck in the manner we have described, could not move ot course, but the butt swung back wards and forwards from one side to the other, with the tremendous rolling ot the ship, which having lost all her after canvass, was complete ly beyond thre coutroll of the helm, and had fallen aft into the trough of the mountainous sea, rolling gunwell uud; T a lurch. be cut a'waV 'apt. Cu.-hing tv ot every lnrst ordering every thing to that held tne spars along-side, C turned his attention to seenrinc the saf.-tv ,t' . j . the house on deck, the continual swaying if the ponderous maet, having loosened "it from the main deck, and rendcaing it next to certain, that should we unluckily ship a sea over tl,o quarter, the whole would be be carried awav. Accordingly ' as soon as the spars ur.voriog overhead had been cut cdrilt, two half hitches of the bight of a stout line were passid over the butt of the broken mast, and the etuis con veyed to either rail over tlie top ot the poop, when watching a good opportunity both wcio made fust, thus temporarily preventing tho mast from sliding across the deck from starboard to port, and back again, and at the ?an:e time securing the house from being washed over board, should it happen to be struck by tho seas that were now making a clean breach over the vessel.

" All hands now to breakfast, and to re st for two hours," said our noble Captain, who had displayed during the terrible night, all tho traits that constitute the gallant and experien ced sailor. About ten o'clock We cgain tnade enr ap pearance on deck, and found Capt Cushing preparing a jury mast to be lashed to the stump of the main-must, with but eleven of our wholo crew able to do duty, the remainder were so exhausted from excessive labor and constant exposure, as to be completely unfit for service. In this position, volunteers liom amongst tho passengers were called for, when wonderful to tell, although dozens of them were peering cu riously over the combings of the hatchways, j gazing in abject terror on tne wrecK uy which i tbey were surrounded, some praying, fconie cry ! ing, and some begging the Captain to put I them ashore, or run into the nearest port, not one ot tne stand, miserable wreicnes couiu do as to be ready for any emergency, tor although prevailed upon to venture on deck, and lend a from having experienced a gale of wind at eea, j Land in securing their own safety 1 once and again previous to the voyage of which " Down with you, you contemptable set," we write, we could command our feelings, and, exclaimed the Captain. anry at the stupid in- even outwardly appear perfectly satisfied with things as they were, so as not to alarm those who had never been at sea before ; we knew perfectly well from the observations we had difference and pusilanimity exhibited by theso creatures, bearing the resemblance of men, ' and don't let me see one of you again for a week," and as he concluded, he shook his taken of existing circumstances and indications, ! speaking trumpet at them in such a significant that trouble was ahead, and consequently we determined, as aforesaid, to be found with our lamp burning, i. e., ready for anything that might turn up. "Balmy sleep" had scarce visited our many eyes when we were roused from our lethargy by a loud crash, and the falling of some heavy body on the deck overhead. It required but an instant for us, dressed as we were, to reach the door of the Poop-cabin at the foot of the manner, that every head disappeared in au instant beneath the hatchway. On the first intimation that volnnteers Wcr6 required, every man in the Poop cabin except the gallant (?) Evans and O'Shanghnessy, re quested to be permitted to assist in any way in which he ceuld be made useful.
