caniooi afforded a vast amoubtof pleaiare to
io panicipanve, iaer wova biio BUtneroai
drawbaekj. owloc to tbo olzal oitara of tha
company, tht diversity of opt ..ions, tht want of
proper preparation, ananeoanary tappiiet, and
nromloentlr tha want of vtmtr ertranitnium.
Immtdlattly after tht oloat of tha war lomt of
mt "oia porta" wno du taiiy mined tbalr
txcnnloni daring tht hostulUoj, having tbtit
annoyanoai in vTew, raiolrtel' to endeavor to
ore rooma thtm u far u MtUhl, and to that
and organised aclob called tha "Happy Twelve."
Tht number wai limited to twelve, officers wert
elected, aeonitltatlonand by-liwi were adopted,
and itepi taken to eeenro a preper eqalpment of
tht club, and tbe first trip iru made coramenolng
on tht 15th of Augnit, 1865. Tbe reader Is re
ferred to tht IU public ah of September lit,
1695, for tht Journal of tht trip.
Tht inocese which crowned tht first vear'i
eiperlence proved tht adrantafei of the organl
xatloa and settled tht ptrmanmcy of the olnb.
The next season found them provided with a
new saint of thetr own, eookltg apparatus, fiih
box, and other minor neceisa-lei, and tbe trip
af 180fi wai, like tht preetdUg one, moit do
Ilghtful. (Set ItEPCSLiCAir of September 5,
1866 ) Tht seine was found too narrow for
many of tho coves, and upon .be return of the
club tbret feet additional depti was ordered
Tht erutst oT 1867 at ont time bid fair to be
broken, np by tht failure of thi captain who bad
been engaged to put In aa appearanct with
hla schooner. A few days before tbe day fixed
for sailing (Aug, 13th) soma ol tht club learned
that he wai aomewhert down la Virginia waiting
for a patch of watermelons to lpea, and had no

flrst-otasi cabin. Oar supplies carefully selected
with tho llsti of the previous two yean before us
to Insure abundance of tvery.blng, were put on

Owen House, with his asslstint, Charley, were
on hand to set that Justlee was done to the prep

made our preparations for tbo night. After
sundown we made better progress on the ebb

SEmpson'i, opposite Tort Waiblogtoo, at 9 p m
A ealutt from the "coon killer" roused Dllly
from hli first nop and be shortly hailed us, Invlt
lag us to land. Ho produced a vial of Baker's
extract of rye, which be recommended as a spe
etfio for the night air, of which wo all partook a
few drops, and escaped any evil effects from our
nocturnal visit. Having taken on a supply of
fresh tomatoes, op'oos, apples, potatoes, Ao., we
gave Billy a parting salute, and again got under
weiga, out made trifling ueadway.
Wednesday, August 14 Morning found us
anohored off Indian Head, the wind betas? too
light to carry us against tbe Hood tide. Shortly
aiicr sunrise, tna wind rresnening aiignuy, we
again got under weigh, and with tba ebb tide,
made tomt progrers. After dinner a party went
on ahore near lMarvIand Point and made a haul
with tht seine, taking enough tailors and croak
onto make our supper. While drifting along
ciose in on Maryland l'ol&t, about 4 p m , a
squall from tht soutbweststruck us, and we wert
obliged to let go the anchor to prevent goloe on
tht short. It was here that little brother Hob
art's new drawers went through the hawio hole,

gate orosslng our bows, and, catoblng a line
thrown to him. In a few moments be was safe un
der onr lee. It proved tbe little sloop Dart, Cap
tain Bryant, bound up tbe river with fish. By
him we were able to send our first communlca
tlons to friends at home After boxlog the com
Jiass, tho wind settled southwest, when wt sailed
or the Upper Machodac, where we proposed to
make a brief stay.
Thursday, August 13 As the rain continued,
wt decided to giro Machodao the go by, and con
tinned down tht river with light wind from tbt
northwest. Ai our haul of yesterday was con
sumed, wt lay by off Bagged rolnt, and made
another baulj result 0 tailors, 4 rook, 1 sbeeps
head, and a quantity of croakers Shortly after
this a squall struok us and drove us baok some
distance, when, there being indications of a
rough nlgbt, It was decided to go Into tbo Lower
Maohodao for a harbor. Two o'clock found us
safely anchored In that splendid harbor, and,
after doing justice to tho fruits of our morning
toll, we proceeded to haul our seine In a tre
mendously heavy rain, which continued during
the entire night Tbe result of our labor, although
enough to supply our wants, wasnothtog toboait

Friday, August 16 Still raining and wlnj
very hleb. All hands feelim; well after the
previous day's duckings and drenching! Fluid
extract of tansy was prescribed by the ''Doctor,1'
and after a hearty breakfast we set nil for
FIney Point, reaching that place at 0 15 a. m ,
where wt again had a glimpse of the lun, (and
daughttri, too.) Tbt day was spent la various
vrays. Tht gallants, headed by the Colonel,
who Is a famous "ladles' man, ' spent a greater
portion of tbe day with the ladles on short or
salting In a small boat on the rlvor. Tho con
templative Jessie "received1 on board Cap
tain Joe, with his crew and Pop, made one or
two hauls with the seine, securing fish enough
for present wants. A Lurleiaue prist fight was
gotten up on sboro beUeot. two of tht Happies.
I.udolphui IUnaldo, the second of ltttlt Kobert,
was not an JuU In such aDairs, and did not
throw up hli sponge when his prinolpal failed
to comt to tlmt. Tho result was. tbt ohamcion
came over to hli corner and tuct her from him.
Soon after a search was made for the door
keeper, wbo bad absconded with the funds.
When found, an hrmn! the lohooner. ha aiierteJ
bo had given the money to Billy Mltohell'
barkeener to keep for him Appearances coo
firmed his story. After dark the party attended
a ball given in tbo pavilion of tbe hotel, where
tbey met tbe fair ones vi.ltlng at the Point
Tho mut$h-mta of tbe morning having re
covered from tbt etTocti of their eooounter,
cave an exhlbitlou of some steps not taught by
French masters. After a most agreeable even
ing spent as above, we all went on board, aud,
at 2 a. m ,
Saturday, August 17, got under weigh for
Cone river, arriving there about sanrlie. Tht
day opened beautifully, and was tbt better ap.
predated ai we contrasted tt with tbe early
Sart of the week. Capt. Beltiell has his rest
enothert, and he spent most of the day on
shore. Tht party amused themselves In various
ways gunning, flthlsg aad rambling on tbe
shore. Some of the boyi took a tall up to "the
warehouse," where tbey procured fresh supplies
oi vcgeiBQivF, cuicaenr, iruii, ana two mocking
birds, which loon became great pets.
Tht fishing in Oont wt found excellent, both
with the seine and lint; and during tbe day we
took enough to fupply our table the balance of
tht trip. The night was manlficent, and most
oftbe party slept on deck under tht owning.
Sunday, August 18 A most lovely morning;
tht inn rising acroil the bay a bright red color,
with a light brecst from the west. Being the
Sabbath, we eoncluded to sail over to St. Inegoes
to church, and got off shortly after lonrtso j but
the wind failed us when we reached tbt middle
oftbe bay, and we did not reach St. Inegoes till
some tlmt tfter noon. Wt therefore run np to
St, Mary's, and took In a supply of freih water
from a famous spring on tht shore, and turned
about, proceeding on our way towards the bay
with a very light eouth wind. The night was
quiet and bright, although there was consider
able swell upon tbt bay, indicating there had
been wind somewhere Tht venal rolled and
tossed tn the sea, without sufficient wind to keep
her steady, and tbt result wai those wbo had not
got on their sea legs were called to settto accounts
with Neptune. All bands settled down on deck
for tbe night; but the wind springing op towards
morning, most of them were glad to seek a warmer
Monday, August 19 Arrived in Corkle'i
creek, at the mouth of tbe Great Wicomico,
about 7 o'clock a. m. "Sandy" hid breakfast
ready, and full justice was done to It by all but
ont or two, who bad not recovered from yeiler
day's tea sickness. Immediately aft or breakfast
wt proceeded to haul our seine In a favorite core,
which had never before failed to yield us a good
supply of rook, trout, and other fish. Imagine
our disgust on landing half a cart-load of ale
wires and crabs, and not one good fiih tn the
lot. Several other hauls wert made during the
morning, without recurlng our finny treasures
Our old friend of last year, Captain Edwards,
came onboard and offered to show us a good
place to make a haul. Wt went with him, and
cait our net. Wt caught logs, stakes, poles,
barrel hoops, and a few Que fiih. Had it not
been for the obstructions, we would, no doubt,
hart taken a large quantity of fish. Some of the
boys were uncharitable enough to say tbey be
lievtd Old Edwards took us there to get his core
cleared out We found the line fishing here ex
eellent. At tbli point, one of our number, wbo
had suffered a good deal from soa-slckness and
biliousness, was compelled to report himself on
tht sick list, Captain Beltsell admlnlsterel a
dose of ague medicine, which helped htm some
what, although It did not effect a permanent
curt, Wt took In here more freih vegetables
and fruits, and also bought three splendid look
log mocking birds.
Tuesday, August zo .After a hearty break
fast off fiih caught the same mornlnc. cot under
weigh once more for the Plankatank river, beat
ing down tut bay against a light southerly wind.
A succession of thunder gusts pasted over to tht
north of us during tht day, each oct coming
nearer, until ont gave us a heavy shower from
Its right wing. Scarcely had this passed before
another was seen coming with unmistakable
signs of fury. Our foresail was dropped, and
tbt mainsail reefed In quick time, hut none too
qulck.for hardly were the preparations oompleted
be for the storm was upon us Our vessel groane 1
and creaked for an Instant, and then daihed

Wednesday, Auguit 21 At daybreak Capt.
Beltsell and some of tbe early-iliers were off for
a haul of tbe seine, on the shoals, taking about
a barrel of tbo finest fish. Including bonita or
horse mackerel, tailors, trout, and some croakers
or spots, pronounced by tbe natives tbt largest
they had ever seen. Wo alio took a stingray,
or itingarte, as they are called by the fishermen,
measuring seven feet four Inches from head to
end of tail, and four feet eleven Inches across
from flu to Cq. We carried this ugly looking
