of the gentlemen, wiio un lerwent this
graceful ordeal, attributed it to
indulgence in trout and oysters.
After nightfall a gentle breeze sprung
up, and we sailed in behind that wonderful

More than one of our party expressed
themnelves perfectly content with ull the
outlny that our Gov.-ruiuent had made in

tum more perfectly attained than in this.

old ocean Unites with incesnnut fury,
lay in water as tranquil ua our mill ponds.

In the afternoon our Captain landed us at
the quaint old town of Lewes. Tha most
prominent characteristic of this place, is,
the doors of tbe housas open outwards and
are painted green. Towards evening our
party hired a coach and started for Cape

Here all were lost in wonder and
