Aiiito' leeward considerably as she
advanced, stil I felt suto' if she kept
on the same'tack she would undoubt
edly see' our signals beibro passing
beyond. My larger signal, too,,
continued to drift mo nearer to her
track, aitid took me almost out of sight
of my two conpatliois. When within
about two or three miles of' us, and
about an hour and a half after site first
- hove in sight, we were relieved by
her backing her sails, altering her
eurse, and laying to for a while, thetn
olisting a signal on her spanger gaff
she put about an..d bore away, on and
on fhr in the distande on the opposite
tack until my heart began to fiail
agirf.doubiig. whether-sie was beat
ing to windward for us, or had gone
ei her way rejoiceing in the disco-ve.ty
and rerue of only a portion of'the
ianqrttunate wretches withing range of
her But"againyfhow light and buoy.
ant was the joy as she at last put about
and astanding directly for us; on and
-in the advanced like a saving angel,
until we could see her noble looking
hull'distinctly rise and fall within lit
tIe over a mile distant from us, whent
she backed her sails again, and waited
for some time in prosecution of her
inission of mercy, no doubt; relieving
some of our bcattering companions
fhom a like precarious state.
Soon she filled away again, and at
last laying to close by the two firemen,
I saw her boat lowered with five men
in it, who, picking up the two firemen
in their course, came datshing along
direct for in) rafi, and soon lounaeing
alongside, I allowed myself to tumtble
aboard ofthen, utable physically to
adopt anything of a gracefil action,
and morally overpowered with giati
tude to. God and to those his instrai
mnents.. Iremained speechless until I
got on board the ship. Ilelore getting
on board,. however, the boat went
away fbr some distance to wind ward,
and picked tap the three other fa iemen,
who I had seen leave the Arctic, but
who had been ever since out of view.
We all got huddled upon the deck
somehow, although rather awkwardly,
and making my way down to her neat
little cabin, as well ts my stiff feet
and legs would allow, I had the pleas
ure of paying my respects to Captain
John Russell, and found myself on
board the ship Cambria, of Greenock,
bound fron Glascow to Quebec. Capt.
Russell, Rev. Mr. Walker, of the
Free Church of Scotland, and his very
kind and attentive lady, Mr. Suather
Jand, of Caithnesshire in Scotlanid, M r.
Aohn McNaught, and several of the
passengers of the steerage, paid every
atention that I could ha% e desired
Capt. iRussell giving tme up the berth
which he had beea using himself, and
putting everything on board itt requi.
fition that night tend in the least to
relieve and ake us comfortable.
I was surprised to leuarn that the old
Frenchman, whon we had picked up
from the Vesta, was our good getiaus
on this occasion. Being directly in
the track of the approaching Cambria,
he was picked up by the second
mate of the Catmbria. Mr. Ross,
jumping overboard with a line, atnd
seizing hold of the man, they were
both pulled on board, and the rescued
Frenchman, in the best English he
could mutster, made Ca~pt. ltausel
aware that others were neat', who then~t
went to the masthecad and wvith htis
glass made out the other four pieces
of wreck, which wve were all ont, and
miaking his long tack to winadwardh,
.came back in the midst of'us, pieann
up first, from that haltf rounad piece of.
wreck that I saw~ burst above the sur.
face at the tiare of the ship going un-t
der, Capt. Luce, Mr. George F. Allent,
of the Novelty Works, and a young
German, a passenger on thte Arctic,
by the namne of Ferdinand Kaye. They,
along with eight others of' those who
went down with the ship, had gained
this piece of wreek, which turned out
to be a segment of one of' the paidi 1
boxes, and, singular as it seems, Capt.
Luce, who had stuck by his sinkinag
ship to the last minute, was thus saved
.a& last on the vet y boards which as
comantder were his post of' duty;
practically his post of duty savedI hitm.

ces its 9th volume and presents a favotable
opportunity for those who feel disposed t'
patronize their District papers, to subscribe
and thus place it in the power of the Pro
prietors to improve and add to the present
publication. Of the importance of a free,
honest, and independent Press to any coim
munity, there can be no question, and to
support such is a duty every man owes to
himself and society. 'To those who wish
to advertise, the Banner presents a happy
opportunity-, our rates are low and our
subscription list larger than at any forniar
period; the importance - too of advertisink
and making ones business known is unw
universally acknowledged, and without it
no man can hope to succeeed if ha de.
pends upon the public 'for -support. The
people of this section of the State are every
day becoming more enlightened, better
educated and more alive to their true in.
terests. With this advancement the cir.
culation of the paper extends and with it
the reputation, credit and acquaintance of
the advertisor. We hope our friends will
not bo slow to perceive and take hold of
the advantages thus offered.
To our Subscribers.
We have heard, within the last few
weeks, so inocih complaint from sub.
scribers about not receiving. their pa
pers, that we are compelled, in justice
to ourse ves, to say thefiII/t is not with
us. In several instances, lately, where
persons have come to our oflice with
the usual " what's the matter we have
not got our Banner this week," they
have been taken to the Post oflice and
had it provcd to their satisfaction, that
the Banner had been mailed for them
and our duty in the premises faithful.
ly discharged. This is all we can do.
After the paper is mailed our duty is
done, and if it, is not received theni, it is
becauso some Post-Master, through
whose hands it has to pass, neglects to
do his duty in forwarding or delivering
it. We hold ourselves ready and able
to show that we always mail every
subscriber's paper, and we hope if any
of our ftiends fitil to get their paper
hereafter, they will notify us of it and
we promise to use every exertion to
let, the ldame rest where it should, and
to remedy the evil. We charge no
paeticular individual we wish it un.
derstood, with neglect of duty, but we
speak in justice to ourselves and must
be excused in saying we are deterin
