At day-break, one bright Monday morning about 14 years ago, the hands ofthewhaleship H?(since burned byol the Anglo-rebel pirate Shenandoah,) was roused by the loud call "All hands cut in, ahoy! turn out?turn out!" following in a few minutes by the cheering sound of "Grog?O!" The command waB not to be slighted; bnt the reminder that Old Jamaica was on deck, waiting to be drank, was an additional inducement to hurry, and all hands, from captain to cook, were soon busy at the day's work. The occasion of our early all hands' muster was this: The day previous (Sunday) we had fallen in with a school ot cow sperm whales, and when the sun went down we had five twenty-barrel fish alongside. (three of them counting to the third mate, whose boat steerer I was,) and now we were to "cut in" our prizes. The method of capturing, cutting-in and trying-out whaieB, has been so often (though never exactly to my satisfaction) described, that I will only say that our windlass clonked and cuttingfaiiii nmak-nl and sureed and we sane and joked until about 5 p. m., at which time tho blubber of five Bpertn whales was safe under our main hatches, their "caHe" (the case is a cavity in the fiah'a bead, and the most valuable part of the whale) on deck, ready to be bailed out the next morning, and many of the crew were more than half-seas over, and ready for almost anything that could be named or thought of?among the wor9t off of the lot being the third mate, Mr. S., his boat's crew, and?his boatsteerer. Everything was in a mess, and those who were sober enough were engaged in clearing up the deck aB far as was practicable, when the black cook looked over the rail intently for a moment, and then gave the long-drawn, musical cry which announces a fish in sight? "'Ar-r bio oows?whew! spout like a furze bush?hundred-barrel sperm, and no mistake," and sure enough, not two miles to windward, there lay a huge lone bull, leisurely spouting,and with not the least idea of his proximity to danger. The gear was rapidly placed in the boats, and the first and second mates were soon laying on their oars at a nhort distance from the ship, waiting for the captain, who, perceiving the Btate of our boat's crew, desired Mr. S. to remain on board, saying ho would lower his own boat instead. "If we fasten," said he, "keep as close to the boats as you can:" and in u lew minutea the three boats were pulling silently but swiftly, in a circuitous course, to get to the windward of the whale so as to bring the sail to bear on him, for 'tis a well nigh hopeless task to attempt to get near enough to a whale to strike, by nsing oars?the sail muBt do it, as the fiBh is very quick to hear, and to run away. Mr. S. was in a rage at being ordered to remain on board. So were the oarsmen. So was I. Hadn't we taken three fish the day before ? Of course we had ?and fancied we were now able to take six. The men grumbled and used the most expressive adjectives. Mr. S. remarked something about the captain's eyes, and I am afraid the writer's language wouldn't stand a close investigation?till at last, having persuaded ourselves that we were all right and the skipper a perfect Dionysius.down went our boat, and we pulled (the oars appearing sometimes slightly confused) about ? mile ahead ot the ship, clear away from the other boats, I did not pull, as X was fully cihployed in bending the wbale line to the "iron" (the technical name for the harpoon) and Mr. 8. was Bteering. Perhaps I may as well explain a little, bofore I proceed further. The boat steerersits in the extreme bow of the boat, and pulls the "barpoonier" oar, the bow oar being the second one from the stem. The boatsteerer's duty is to assist in pulling, to harpoon the whale if he can manage it, and then to go to the stern of the boat and steer or bend the line as maybe required; the officer in command, who steers the boat until the whale is strnck, going forward and dispatching him with the lance. I had got one harpoon bent, and the crew were lying on their oars, when snddenly a ripple was shown on the water close to the boat, and a moment after the whale's square head appeared above the surface, the low, busby Bpoul shot into the air with a noise like the blowing off of steam from a high pressure boiler, and then the huge black sides rose as the startled monster (too late for blm and for us, as it turned out) attempted to esoape bysounding. "Dart! dart 1?boatsteerer ! Dart!" fairly yelled the third mate ; but the words were still in his mouth when I beard the s-sue of the iron as it went "chock to the hitches" through the blubber just abaft the fish's fin. "Fast!" I roared, but nobody moved an oar. Were we going to stern clear of u whale ? No, we certainly were not?for we didn't. I ~ ?WO U'pro | rememoer mtti iui a ? deluged by the spray dashed up by tbe wounded whale in his sudden straggle to escape, and then, aa tbe line drew taut and tbe boat started ahead with a ierk, tbe boatateerer found himself on bis back between tbe bow and midship thwarts, with his legs sticking up in the air, having fallen over the bow-oarsman?pretty near smashing that gentleman flat. "Tumble ait and take the line, boatateerer," said Mr. S., and tumble aft I did, and be went forward to lance the whale, which was running to windward (as all wouDded whales do) like a race-borse. Fori unataly for us the whale was not only kind, but did not sound to any greHt depth, not taking ont more than 100 fathoms of line al any time. Had be fought or sounded onr boat excursion would not have lasted long. Wben we fastened to him it was just at sunset, and our position was now perilous enough?six drunken men in a frail boat, Cast to a sixty barrel whale, out of sight of the ship, and going away from her as fast aa our mighty victTm could drag us, and the darkness of the tropics around. Hut the moon rose shortly, and, like tbe obstinate fools that we were, we still held on. When the whale rose for the first time after being struck, we bad hauled up to him by tbe line, and Mr. S., a splendid whaleman, had lanced him. Had be been sober with the opportunity he bad (tbe whale's wbole broadside being out of water aa he pitched to go down) he would have killed him. As it was he only pricked the whale, just enough to let him know that tbe insignificant creatures in the cookie shell were unoomfortable neighbors, and to make him go down. He took good care to keep clear of us afterwards. He would take out forty or fifty fathoms oi line, run steadily on to windward at that depth, till he wanted to breathe, then corns to tbe surface and spout regularly, while we hauled in again on oui line nntll we got as close as be liked wben down he would go?he sooe found out we didn't chase him dowi: there. ''Boatateerer, open the lantern-keg.' Aye, aye, sir," said I, and open It was quick. Tnia "lantern-keg" containec a lantern, a pound of a perm candles, i tinder-box, matches, a pound of to baoco, a bunch of cigars, five or si] pounds of ships bread, and a bottle of ram. That was what was wanted, and our throats were soon moistened afresh with the infernal polBon, the use of which had brought us where we were: Valiant men were we. We abused the whale, and dared him to stop and fight > it out?called him iool and coward when be didn't do it; Mr. S. said he would hang on to him until the girl baby he had left at home was a grandmother; and we boasted, quarreled and laughed, drank and t-lept, until the moon rose 1 high and fell, and the first faint streaks of daylight warned us that we had spent a night in the boat. Suddenly the boat lost her way, and the general cry of "loose," and "line parted," was answered by the third mate?"not parted?cut. I've out it. Where's the ship?" To say that we were sobered would exceed the truth; but the oflicor'd "Where's the ship?" did startle us into a semi-consciousness of our position, and our disorderly crew became suddenly silent. Mr. H. was sober. "Boatsteerer get out the compass, and see how the wind is," said he, and I at once obeyed. We knew that the whale had been going dead to windward all the time, and we supposed that we bad only to run before the wind to find the ship. But boats 1 whose chances had been better than , ours bad been lost, and there was certainly a possibility tbat ours might add one more to the number, and thia was enough to make ub each Becretly uneasy, as we ran down at the rate of five or six knots before the wind, with oar sprit'sail boomed oat with an oar. The sun rose clear and hot, and as he climbed higher and higher, the heat, . and the expiring effects of the accursed rum, made us thirsty almost to torture, 1 We had water in the boat-keg?Bix gallons ; but tbe officer, who realized the position which our Inexperience could not fully comprehend, would only allow us a small quantity each, and at what we tbongbt unreasonably long intervals of time. We took turns in sleeping, Mr, S. and I relieving each other at the steering oar, until noon, after which no one Beemed inclined to close hla eyes?all were looking out eagerly for the good ship H . The aun reached the zenith and we saw no ship. Hour after hour wore on, and as the sun went down in the afternoon sUy, bo did onr spirits droop, and the expression on more than one face changed from hope to anxiety?from anxiety to something near akin to despair. For a long while the third mate did not speak, bat with the practiced gaze of an old seaman, swept the horizon for a speck, until the Bun had Bet; then he run the stearing-oar in, hanled i n the sheet, and as the boat came to the wind sat down on the loggerhead, and said quite colly, "It's no use, men. We are passed her, and you may as well make up your minds to lake it easy !" We were adrift, sure enough. Had we known (what we afterwards learned) that the wind had hauled four points, that is, forty-live degrees, at midnight, we could probably have found the ship. As it was, we ran a long way astern of her: while the captain and officers, convinced that some disaster had destroyed us, were beating the ship to windward, and keeping a sharp lookout for anything In the Bhape or an overturned boat or a dead whale, neither of which they found. For two days the ship was turned to windward, and then her course was Bhaped for another oruising ground, and the third mate and boat's crew logged as lost. Lost we certainly were. We had no instruments with which to dertermine our position, and it we bad should have been no better off, for not a man in the boat could have used them; the third mate, although a good sailor and a good whaleman (two qualifications that do not necessarily go together,) being no navigator. We had a good compass and we knew that Peru was some twelve hundred miles to the eastward, but that was a long distance to poll on short allowance of water; and the southeast trade wind was an obstacle to our progress instead of a help. We hoped to reach the QallipagoB or Turtle Islands, which we knew to be but half as far distant as the main land ; bnt we did not know that they were hundreds of miles to the northward, and of course we came nowhere near them. It could interest no one were T to attempt a record of our hopes and fears, our failing strength and weary progress, the gradual reduction of our rations of food and allowance of water, our comparatively slight sufferings from hunger, or the indescribable tortures of excessive thirst?so I will pass over the time from our giving up the ship until the Tuesday following?the eighth day of onr excursion: In the meantime we had been working our way, with oars or sail, in a northeasterly direction, and hoped we were now in the track or California bound ships; we had caught a dolphin, two benitas, and a number ot llying flsb, which had helped eke out our bread, of which we still hod some left; but the last small taste of water?just enough to moisten our hot tongues and throats?bad been shared out, and we were without one drop now, no land nor ship in sight, and within fifteen degrees of the equator. On more than one occasion since that time I have suffered from hunger?far more than I did in the boat; I have been so far gone that I felt no particular craving for food, but only a sinking hollowness and indifference, and was only restored by great care and skill; but as far as physical suffering is concerned, I would prefer to starve to death fifty times, were it possible, than to again undergo the tortures from thirst of the last twenty-four hours in that whale-boat. The eighth day opened, like the other days, clear and hot. No one rowed? hope was nearly gone. The midship oarsman, by iar the strongest man in the boat, was talking nonsense to himself half the time, but the rest spoke but little. Mr. S. still maintained bis seat on the sternsheets of the boat, and, as the wind freshened with.tho day's advance, be steered as ho could the course we had been making. How the day wore away for others I don't know, but I bad sense enough left to feel that I was going mad?strange fancies and sights were present?rivers of fresh water, wells from which I had drank, and brooks I bad damned up when a boy, and every delicions drink I had ever tasted?but no thought of home or friends, lime or eternity? nothing bnt water! water! before my imagination all the time. It was afternoon, perhaps about two o'clock, when the third mate deBcried a smoke to leeward. It was smoke, evidently a steamer coming to windward, probably a mail boat from California or Panama bound to Valparaiso. The prospect of speedy relief galvapiin into nnmpthinif like lile?even tbe midship oarsman got bis oar ready, to help pull alongside when the vessel got up to us. Our sail was rolled up, the mast struck, and the little blue ilag, Used to announce a "fast boat," was stuck up in tbe stern. All talked, or attempted to talk at onoe; one would have iced-water?lota of it, too; another would have a few drops of vinegar in his drink?all were luxuriating in the anticipation of soon having something to drink, plenty to drink, and all were accordingly in high spirits. A boat-load of hideous spectres we must have been, with our sunken eyes and hollow cheeks, and lips blaokened and cracked and shrivelled until the teeth were exposed in a constant, ghastly grin, as we made ourselves merry with insane or childish glee, while waiting tbe steamer's approach. The after oarsman and the third mate were able to speak plainly, their tongues not being swollen so muota as to interfere greatly with speech ; and as the hull of tbe advancing vessel rose above the horizon and we could see that she was not heading exactly for us, Mr. S. said, "Jog ahead gently, boys?let's not let him pass us now," and we settled ourselves to our oars, and pulled at rlgbt angles to tbe steamer's course with what speed we might. As she came closer she seemed to be giving us more and more of a berth, and our remnant of strength was exert; ed to the utmost. Whether we had been mistaken as to her course in the first place, or whether she had shifted it, hauling more in for the land after we | saw her, I cannot tell; but hope gradually receded as she steamed BWittly to ' windward, showing us more and more ' of her broadside, until she passed us at 1 a distance so short that we oould distinguish the people passing back and ' forth on her poop, and fancied that we , could hear tbe beating of her paddle 1 wheels. Had she been a whaler we i should have been seen mllea before we . were reached; but no lookout would be c kept on board the steamer, aod so she went away to the windward, iu spite of oar prayers and curses and wavings, and the third mate's /rantfc yellfngs (which probably could not have been I heard two hundred yards,) and left us as completely disheartened as men could be. The midship oarsman laughed and laid down in the bottom or the boat; Mr. 8. sat down on the Btern sheets and hid his face in his hands; while I, unable to bear the sudden destruction of my hopes of plenty of fresh water, and determined to have something to drink, picked up tbe boat piggin and filled it from over the side; but before I could take a mouthful the third mate struck tbe piggin a blow with a paddle which sent it flying twenty feet Irom the boat, and u^LOn my back in the bow with my bead under the line box. I remember but little more. Once I opened my eyes, and by ihe light of the moon saw Mr. S. still sitting on the stern sheets with his face in his hands. Tbe next thing I recall la tbe third mate and after oarsman (the only ones left on their feet) stepping the mast and setting tbe sail, after which all is blank I for a time. Ab I afterwards learned, Mr. S. had seen, at daylight, a ship laying with her main yard back, hull down to leeward, and the sail had been set and tbe boat kept away for her. She was a whaler, and we had been seen probably before we raised the ship, for they bad seen onr sail when it was set. Mr. 8. steered right down to the ship, bat in attempting to round the boat under her counter he fell down, and tbe wbaler had to send a boat to tow ns alongside. We were hoisted up, and humanity and skill saved every life, though tbe whole lot of as hadn't balf enough left for one. We were on board the whaleship N. for some ten weeks, and at last were taken into tbe port of Tumbez, in northern Peru, where the ship went to procure vegetables, give liberty, Ac. Here we were to leave her (as she was overmanned with our boat's crew) and make onr way to Payti, where there was an American consul. On what was to have been tbe last day of her stay, another whaler hove la sight and let go her anchor lste in the atternoun abont four miles off. Mr. S. had been looking at her for some time, and as she swung to her anchor and showed him her side he dropped the glasB as if It had been red hot, and sang out, "clebr away the boat! come on, boys, that's the old H." It didn't take us long to reach her, and as we came near we could recognize one after another the shipmates who had for three months mourned us (sailor fashion) as dead. Oar approach had been> noticed, anil the mate, Mr. C. was in the gangway to receive us, as we shot aloDg aide. The crew were aloft, furling the sales, and the oaptain - below, fixing up for Bhore on the morrow, when the mate, leaning over the side, recognized us. He turned pale for an Instant, muttered an exclamation of surprise .and pleasure, and then burst out with a Bhout: "Hurrah! here'sthe bow-boat back?all hands safe! Whoop!" and in another minute we were in the scene of most gloriouB confusion. The skipper ran up from below, and the men slid down from aloft, and Bhaking hands, laughing, hugging eaah other and all talking together, made quite a lively scene. I don't think any of us were quite so absurd as to kiss each other, but more than one blew his nose suspiciously; and if Mr. 8. had not displayed so much cool courage and endurance while In the boat, I should have been certain that I saw tears in his eyes; as it was, I was probably mistaken. It would naturally be supposed that men who had suffered so much from the effects of one drunken spree would have foresworn liquor ever after. But we were sailors, and whalemen at that! and I don't think the boat experience did ua any good; for that same night ("refreshments" were distributed freely in honor of the joyfal occasion,) one of the boat's crew slept under the carpenter's bench In the waist, under the impression that he was snugly stowed in his bank; and Mr. 3. himself stuck on the booby hatch till daylight, singing remarkable selections of sentimental, drinking and sea songs, in a remarkable manner.?Portsmouth Chronicle.

This distressing affection, which renders life miserable and marriage impossible, is the penalty paid by the victim*ol improper indulgences.

DR.

TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses all those who have injured themselves by improper indulgence ana solitary habits, whicn rum both body and mind, unffltuig them for either business, study, society or marriage*. TliAhfi are home of the sad and mAlnnphnlv ellects produced by early habits ot youth, viz: WchKiicshof uiePackand Dlmhs, Pains in Uie Head, uiiimeca 01 toigiit, Doss 01 Muscular Power, PalpitaUon oi the Heart, Dyspepsia, Nervous irritability* -Derangement or Uie Digestive Functions, General Debility Symptoms oi CoiibimipUon, Ac.

Indulged In when alone, a habit liequenUy learned from evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are nlghUy leii, even when asleep, and, if not cured, render* marriage importable, and destroys both mind and body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope oi hiscounUy, the pride ot his parents, should be snaicned liom all proepects and enjoyments of lile by the consequence of deviating from the path of rial uie, anu indulging in a certain oecret habit. Such persons must, before contemplating MAKHIAUE, reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necessary requisites to promote connubial happiness, inueed, without these tbe journey through hie becomes a weary pilgrimage; the prospect hourly darkens to the view, the nnnd becomes shadowed with despair and tilled with the melancholy rellec tion that the happiness of another bocoma blighted with our own. DISEASES OF IMPRUDENCE. When the mlagnlded and Imprudent votAry of pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds of this painful disease it too oiten happens that an ill-timed sense of shame of dread of discovery deters him from applying to those, who irom education and respectability, can alone befriend him, delaying UD the constitutional symptoms of this horrl' disease make their appearance, such as ulci.rated sore throat, dieased nose, nocturm.1 pain8 in the head and limbs, dimness ol sigbt deafness, nodes on the shin-bones and arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, progressing wltn frighuul rapidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or Uie bouts of the nose fall In, and the victim of this awiul disease becomes a horrid object i: commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadiui sufferings, by handing nlm to "thai undiscovered Country Irom whence no traveller returns."
