Lost in the Arctic Seas.?Captain Roach,
master of Messrs. C. A. Williams & Co's.
whaling schooner Helen F., of New London,
f wrecked in October, iSTti, io the Arctic soas,
bus arrived io that eily. lie reports that tho
j Helen F., was in winter quartets at Cumberland
inlet when beset by tho storm in which
she w.!s lest. A heavy ghlo sprang up, and
the ice, in great masses crowding tho vet.sal,
drove her out to sea.
F dorrs made to work her back failed, and "
after two days of toil an attempt was made to
reach cither Hannibal's harbor or Brown's
harbor. These efforts also failed, and the vessel
was. as u last resort, beached on a small
island. No lives wore lost in the perilous operation,
and the vessel was stripped aDd tho ,
provisions landed. This latter task was but
juj?t accomplished when tho southwest wind
started the crackling, grinding ice blocks in
toward the isle, and they came on in great,
resistless heaps, and, crowding and pushing
up and over tho schooner's side, buried her
from sight, and left only her mastheads visi
b!e. Fu 1 forty feet abovo her decks aod on
all sides of her it lay iu shiuiog, transparent
piles, imprisoning her as securly as though she
were fastened in the bowels of tho earth.
It was not until PeoemborG that her officers
and crow could make their way to tho station
in Fence's Harbor, where were bolter shelter
aud a plentitude ot provisions, and on that day

hlie sank in (hreo fat horns of water close by the
laud that all the Winter Icmg had held her
f ijaril ami last. From the station at l\rane's
Harbor the crew ot the Helen fished with fair
suoocss until the I0;h of July, when the Scotch
t?rPerseverance hove in sight and took
them off. On tbo twelfth she put out to sea,
and aher a pleasant voyage of tweuiy eight
I days' duration she came into Peterhead, .Scotland.

ICE C REAM.
My Ice Cream Manufactory, one of the largest
in Virginia, still continues to supply private
customers, Sunday schools, excursions, picnics,
l.iirs, tostivals and associations, as well as the
trade, with that SUPERIOR CREAM that has
made & name in this community, and is known
overyvrhoro as iiUKNGLE'S ICE CREAM. I ^
couid easily reduce its price by lowering its quality,
but good cream, of fresh, pure, wholesome
ingredients, cannot do furnished at h loss price ^
than 1 servo it. Of course, I could "grade my
rreatn by tho price," but my cream would lose
tho good name that years ot fair dealing have ->
won lor it. I ask tnat persons abroad ordering
"Urengle's Cream" from third parties will as
sure themselves lust the cream sent is certainly
Irom my establishment. I warrant my cream,
and do net wish thai intorior cream, sent oul as
mine, 10ay injure its reputation. It is my aim tu
to furnish the BEST OKKAM IN AMERICA, *
and my customers arc satisfied that 1 do so.
