The Relics of Sir John Franklin
There) will be no more Arctlo expeditions' to
discover the fate of Sir John Pranklln. In tho
telegraphic summary of the Camda'i nows,
published on Saturday, the result of the hut
expedition, aent out by Lady Franklin to search
for tidings of her husband, was briofly an
nounced. In the London papers, sinoe received,
we hare a detailed report from Cant. Mo
Cllntook, who commando! the search, yacht
Fox, of the evidences which he obtained of Sir
John Franklin's death on the 11th of Jane,
1847, and the abandonment of Lis ships, the
Erebnt and Terror, by his surviving associates,
105 in number, on April 22, 1848, in the ioe,
upon tho north-west coast of King William
The overland expedition of Dr. Bae had pre
viously obtained information from the Esqui
maux and rellos of the Franklin expedition,
which direoted Captain MoClintock's search.
The Fox, which left England in the beginning
of 1858, enoountored the usual Obstaeles from
the iee, and it was not until the spring of 1859,
that the expsdition wore enablod to ooinmenoe
the searoh where it was expeoted that tracos of
the lost Franklin expeditionists might be found.
Capt. McClintock says :
"Being unable to penetrate boyond Eollot
Straits, the Fox wintered (1858-'5U) in Brent
ford Bay, and tho searoh inolnding the estu
ary of the Great Fish River, and the discovery
of eight hundred miles of coait line, by whioh
we have united the exploration of tho former
searohing expeditions, to tiie north and west of
oar position, with those of J'.tmos Rosa, Dense,
and Simpson, and Rae to the South has been
performed by sledge journeys this spring, eon
duoted by Lieutenant Ilobson, K. ., Captain
Allen Young and myself.
"Many deeply interesting relies of our lost
countrymen have been nicked up upon tho
western shores of King William Island, and
others obtained from the Esquimaux, by whom
we were informed that (subsequent to their
abandonment) one ship was orushed and sunk
by the ice, and the other foroed on shore,
where she has ever since remained, affording
thorn an almost inexhaustible mine of wealth."
The following are copies of original papers
found by Captain McClintock, on Prince of
Wales Island :
V ' of May, 1847.
"Her Majesty's ships VeJuand Terror win
n the ice in lat. 70 dog. 5 min., Ion. 88
"Having winterod in 1846-7 at Beeoney
Island, in lat. 71 deg. 43 min. 28 seo. N., Ion.
91 deg. UO min. 15 seo. W., after ascending
WellingtonjChannelto lat. 77 deg., and return
ing by the west side of Cornwall!! Island.
"All well. Sir John Franklin, 1
"Commanding the Expedition.
"Whoever finds this papor is requested to
forward it to the Secretary of the Admirality,
London, with a note of the time and place at
whioh it was found, or, if more convenient, to
deliver it for that purpose to tho British Consul
at the nearest port."
Tho papers were written in several lan
guages, but there is an error in the date, as
the ships wintered at Beechy Island In 1845-6,
the first winter after their departure from
Early spring journeys were oommenoed by
Capt. MoClintook, in February , 1859 ; and he
allotted to different parties, led by different of
ficers, the task of making thorough searches of
the ooast. The operations are thus detailed in
the report)
" Our wintering position was at the east en
trance to Bellot Strait, in a snug harbor whioh
I have named Port Kennedy, after my prede
cessor In these waters, the oommsnder of one
of Lady Franklin's former searohing expedi
tions. Although vegetation was tolerably
abundant, and our Esquimaux hunters, Mr.
Petersen, and several sportsmen constantly on
the alert, yet the resources of the country dur
ing eleven months and a half only yielded us
eight xeindeor, two bears, eighteen seals, and
a few water-fowl and ptarmigan. The winter
was unusually oold and stormy. Arrange
ments wero completed during the winter for
carrying out our intonded plan of searoh ; I
felt it to be my duty personally to visit Mar
shal Island, and in so doing proposed to com
plete the circuit of King William Island.
"On 28th February, when near Cape Victoria,
we had tho good fortuno to meet a small party
of nativos, and were subsequently visited by
about forty-five individuals. For four days
we remained in communication with them, ob
taining many relios, and the information that
several years ago a ship was erushod by the
ice of the north shore, off King William Island,
but that all her people landed safely, and went
away to the Great Fish Biver, where they
died. On 2d of April, our long protracted
spring journeys were commenced ; Lieut. Hob
son aooompanied me as far as Cape Victoria.
Before separating we saw two Esquimaux fam
ilies living out upon the ioe in snow-huts :
from them we learned that a second ship bad
been seen off King William Island, and that
she drifted ashore in the fall of the saute year.
From this ship they had obtained a vast deal
oPwood and iron. I now gavo Lieut. Ilobson
directions to searoh for tho wreck, and follow
any traces he might find upon King William
"Aooompanied by my own party and Mr. Pe
tersen, I marched along the east shore of King
William Island, occasionally passing deserted
snow huts, but without meeting nativos till the
8th of May, when, off Cape Morton, we arrived
at a snow village containing about thirty in
habitants.. They gathered about us without
the slightest appearance of fear or shyness,
although none had evor seen living white peo
ple before. They were most willing to com
municate all their knowledge, and barter nil
their goods, but would have stolen everything
had they not boon oloscly watched. Many
more relics of our countrymen were obtained
we could not carry away all we might have
purchased. They pointed to the inlet wo had
crossed the day before, and (old us that one
day's march up it, and from thsnce four days
ovorland, brought them to the wreok. None
of these people had been there sinoe 1857-8, at
which time they said but little remained, their
countrymen having oarried away almost every
thing. "Most of our information was reooived from
an intelligent old woman. She said it was in
the fall of the year that the ship was foroed
ashore Many of the white inon dropped by
tho way as thoy went toward the Great Hirer ;
but this was only known to them in the winter
following, when their bodies were discovered.
Point Ogle, .Montreal Island, and Barrow
Island, were searched without finding any
thing exoept a few soraps of copper and iron,
in an Esquimaux hiding place. . ,
"Reorossing the strait to King William
Island, we continued the examination of its
southern shore without success, until the 10th
of May, when, about ten miles eastward of
Cape Herschel, a bleached skeleton was found,
around whioh lay fragments of European oloth
ing. Upon oarefally removing tho snow, a
small pooket-book was found containing a few
letters ; these, though much decayed, may yet
be deciphered. Judging from the remains of
his dress, this unfortunate yonng man was a
steward or officer's servant, and his position
exactly verified the Esquimaux' assertion that
they dropped as they walked along.
" 0b reaching Cape Henohel next day, he
examined Simpson's Calm, or rather what re
mains of it, which is only four feet high, and
the oentral stones have been removed, as if by
men seeking something within it. My impres
sion at the time, and whioh I still retain, it,
that records were deposited there by the re
treating crews, aid subsequently removed by
the naive. . .
"After parting with mo at Capo Victoria,
on the 28th of April, Lieutenant Ilobson
made for Cape Folixj at a short distanoo west
ward of it he found a vory largo cairn, and
closo to it three small tents, with blankets,
old clothes, and other rolics of a Bhooting or
a magnetic station: but although the cairn
was dug under, and a tronoh dug all around
it, at a distanco of ton feet, no record was
"On 6th May, Lieutenant fiobson pitched
his tont boside a large cairn upon Point Vic
tory. Lying Among some looso stones
which had fallen from tho top of this cairn,
was' found a small tin case containing a
record, the substance of which is briofly as
follows: This cairn was built by the Frank
lin Expedition upon tho assumod sito of
James Boss's pillar, which hadjbeen found.
The Ertbu and Terror spont thoir first winter
at Beechy Island, after having ascondod Wel
lington Channel to lat. 77 deg. N,, and re
turned by the west sido of Cornwallis Island.
On the 12th September, 1846, they were besot
in lat. 70.05 N., and Ion. 98.23 W.
"Sir, J. Franklin diod on the lllh June,
1848. On the 22d April, 1848, the ships woro
abandoned fivo leagues to tho N. N. W. of
Point Victory, and the survivors, a hundred
and five in numbor, landed here under tho
command of Captain Crozier. This paper
was dated 25th April, 1848, and upon the fol
lowing day they intonded to start for tho
Groat Fish River. The total loss by deaths
in the expedition up to this date was nine
oflicors and fifteen men. A vast quantity of
elothlng and stores of all sorts lay strewed
about, as if here every artiole was thrown
away which could possibly bedispensed with;
piokaxes, shovels, boats, cooking utensils,
iron work, rope, blocks, canvas, a dip circle,
a sextant engraved 'Frederic iiornby,'R. N.,
a small medicine chost, oars, &c.
"A few miles southward, across Back Bay, a
second record was stmnd, having boon de
posited by Lieutenant Gobe and M. Dos
Vocux, in May, 1847. It afforded no addi
tional information. Lieutenant Ilobson con
tinued his search until within a few days'
march of Cape Herschel, without finding any
traooof the wreck or of nativos.
"When in lat. 69 dog. 09 N., and long. 89
deg. 27 W., wo came to a largo boat, discov
ored by Lieutenant Ilobson a fow days pre
viously, as his notice informed mo. It ap
pears that this boat had boon intended for
tho ascent of tbe Fish River, but was aban
doned, apparently, upon a return journoy to
the ships, the sledge upon which she was
mountod being pointed in that direction.
She measured twenty-eight foot in length by
seven and a half foot wide, was most care
fully fitted, and made as light as possible,
but tho sledge was of solid oak, and almost
as heavy as the boat.
"A large quantity of clothing was found
within her; also two human skeletons. One
of these lay in the after part of tho boat,
under a pile of clothing; the othor, which
was much more disturbed, probably by ani
mals, was found in the bow. Five pocket
watches, a quantity of silver spoons and
forks, and a fow religious books, wore also
found, but no journals, pockot-books, or even
names upon any article of clothing. Two
double-barreled guns stood upright against
the boat's sido, precisely as thoy had been
placed eleven years before. One barrol in
each was loaded and cocked; there was am
munition in abundanco; also thirty or forty
pounds of chocolate, some tea and tobacco.
Fuel was not wanting; a drift tree lay within
one hundred yards of the boat.
"Many very interesting rolics were brought
away by Lieutenant Hobson, and soma few by
myself. On the fifth June I reached Point
Victory without having found anything fur

for documents, note-bonks, &c, without suo

" The shore of King William Island between
its north and west extrsmes, Capes Felix and
Crosier, has uot been visited by Esquimaux
sinoe tbe abandonment of the Erebm and
Terror, as the cairns and articles lying strewed
about, whioh aro, in their eyes, of priceless
value remain untouohed.
" If the wreok still remains visible, it is prob

"On the twenty-eighth Juno, Captain Young
and his party returned, having completed tneir
portion of the search, by which the insularity
of Prinoo of Wales Land was determined, and
the eoast line intervenlng'bstween the extreme
points reached by Lieutenants Osborne and
Browne discovered ; also between Bellot Strait
and Sir James Ross's furthest in 1819, at Four
River Bay.
" Fearing that his provisions might not last
out the requisite period, Captain Yonng sent
baok four of his men, and for forty days jour
neyed on through fogs and galos, with but one
man and the dogs, building a snow-hut eaoh
night. Bat few men oould stand so long a
oontinuanoe of labor and privation, and its
effect upon Captain Young was painfully evi
dent. Lieutenant Hobson was unable to stand
without assistance upon his return on board.
"JFrom all that can be gleaned from the
reoord paper and the evidence afforded by the
boat, and various artioles of olothing and
equipment discovered, it appears that tho aban
donment of the Erebus and Terror had beon
deliberately arranged, and every effort exorted
during the third winter to render tho travoling
equipments complete. It is much to be appre
hended that disease bad greatly roduoed tho
strength of all on board far more, perhaps,
than they themselves wore aware of. The dis
tanco by sledge routs from the position of tho
ships when abandoned in the boat, is sixty-five
geographical miles, and from the Bhips to Mon
treal Island two hundred and twonty miles.
The most perfeot order seems to have existed
" In order to extend as much as possiblo the
publio utility of this voyago, msgnetioal, me
teorological, andother observations, subservient
to scientific purposes, and for whioh instru
ments were supplied through the liberality of
oi ins noyai oooiety, nave oeen oontinually
and oarefully taken, and every opportunity
has boon embraced by the surgeon, D. Walker,
M. D., of forming complete oollootions in all
the various branob.es of natural history."
Accompanying this report aro complete in
ventories of tbe artioles found, and though the
relios recovered will be preserved with reli
gious eare, the mere enumeration of them pos
sessed no special interest. Thsy consist prin
cipally of such artioles as bolong to a ship's
furniture, or the personal outfilt of Arctlo voy
agers. Knives, forks, spoons, silver-ware
some bearing Sir John Franklin's orest car
penters' tools, artioles of olothing, pocket-compasses,
some watches, pieces of telescopes,
pocket-books, buttons, and the fragments of
artioles of various kinds. There were also
found in one parcel, a small Prayer-book, cover
of a small book of " Family Prayers," "Chris
tian Melodies," an inscription within the cover
to "O. .," "Vloar of Wakefield," a small
Bible, interlined in many places, and with nu
merous references written in the margin, and
a New Testament in the Prenoh Language.
There were also many artioles discovered whioh
were not brought away. Of the wreoks of tbe
two ships, the expedition failed to find any
portions. It would, however, be a most fool
ish enterpiso to prosocuto the searoh furthor.
ail hope that any of Franklin's party survive
is at an end. It is over eleven years sinoe they
abandoned their ships, and they doubtless all
perished within short time after thoabandonV

perils which surrounded them. Their noble
