S. L. JAMES, T. C. Y, C.
Jan. 13, 1813. 27-iit
Tho noon was rapidly passinff. and the
'sun had already given tokens of the glory of
hi3 departure, when the fisherman's wife,
having lulled her infant asleep, went herself j
to the hill that commanded an extensive !
'view of the wide-spread ocean. All the lit
tle household soon assembled on tho spot,
but no boat was seen upon the waters
nothing that could give hope except the as
pect ot the wave which looked too placid to
be dangerous.
Their deep dread was no longer conceal
ed; aad while the old man paced to aid fro,
looking earnestly at brief intervals over the
lonely sea, the mother and the daughter
were sobbing audibly.
"Fearless let him be whoso trust is in
God !" exclaimed the father. The sentence
was uttered involuntarily, but it had its ef
fect. "Ay," said the mother, "he always trusted
in God, and God will not forsake him now."
"Do you remember, Jane," continued the
old mat, "how often Providence was with
me, anid the storm and the wreck, when
help from man was far off, and would have
been useless if nearf" and thev cheered
and encouraged one another to hope the best
but to submit to the decree of Heaven,
whether it came as the gentle dew to nou
rish, or as tUe heavy rain to oppress. From
that hillock which overlooked the ocean, as
cended,their mingled prayers that God would
not leave them desolate.
The fisherman the object of their hopes
and fears had been very successful during
the night, when at day-break, as he was pre
paring to return homo, ho remembered his
promise to brins with him some seaweed
to manure the potato plot behind his cot
tage. He was then close to rocks which
were only discernible at low water; he
pulled for them, jumped on shore, fastened
the painter of his boat to a jutting part of a
clifi, and took his boat-hook with him- lie
collected a sufficient quantity of the weed,
but in his eagerness to obtain it, had wan
dered from the landing-place, when he heard
us boy loudly hallooing and exclaiming that
the painter was loose. He rushed instantly
toward the boat which was then severa
arjs off; the boy was vaiulv endeavoring to
u both the oars, ana Neptune, the Uith-
ul dog, was running backward and forward,
howling fearfully, as if conscious of his mas
ter's danger, at one moment about to plunge
into the waves to join him, and the next
icking the face and hands of the child, as if
he foresaw that for him his protection would
be most needed.
The fisherman perceived at once the des
perate nature of his situation; the tide he
knew was coming in rapidly, and his hope of
escape was at an end, when he perceived
that his boy, in an effort to use the oars, had
let one of them fall overboard. "Father.
father," exclaimed the poor lad, "what shall
Idol 7 the boat was at this moment so dis
stant that his distracted parent could scarce
ly hear the words, but he called out to him
as loud as he could to trust in God, the fa
ther of the fatherless. He then stood re
signed to the fate which he felt awaited
him, and watched the drifting boat that bore
the child in peril from the fatal rocks. He
had o fie red up a brief prayer to the throne of
mercy, when in an instant, alight brokn up
on his mind. "Good God!" he exclaimed,
"1 may yet be saved." With the energy of
hope battling with despair, he collected all
the stones around him and heaped them ra
pidly upon tho highest ledge of rock: it was
indeed wonderful how he could have gath
ered so many in so short a time: but the
Almighty gave strength to his arm, and he
was labonng not for life merely, but for be
ings still dearer to him. The tide came on,
on, on, and soon obliged him to abandon his
work. He then mounted the pile he had
heaped, planted his boat-hook firmly in one
of the crevices of the cliff, and prepared to
struggle for existence; but his heart failed
him, when he considered how slight was the
possibility that the waters would not rise
above his head. Still, hs determined to do
all he could to preserve life. The waves
were not rough, and the boat-hook support
ed him.
The awful moment rapidly approached;
the water had reached his knees; but he
stood firmly, and prayed that he might be
preserved. On, on, on, it came, slowly and
gently, but more fearfully than if it had ra
ged around its destined prey; soon it reach
ed his waist, and he then prayed that it
might get no higher. On, on, on, it came,
and he was forced to raise his head to keep
as long as possible from death: his reason
was almost gone, his breath grew feeble, his
limbs chill; he panted, and his prayers be
came almost gutgling murmurs. The blood
rushed to his head; his eye-balls glared as
if they would start from their sockets. He
closed them with an efibrt, aud thought for
the last time on the home that would soon
be so wretched! Horrible images were be
fore him each swell of the waves seemed
as if the fiends were forcing him downward,
and the cry of the sea-bird was like their
yells over their victim. He was then gasp
ing, choking, for he had not strength to keep
his head above the waves, every moment it
was plashing upon them, and each convulsive
start that followed only aroused him to the
consciousness, if consciousness it could bo
called, that the next plunge would be his
Merciful powers! at tho very moment,
when the strength and spirit of a man had
left him, and the cold shudder of death had
come on, he felt that the tide rose no high
er. His eyes opened, closed, and a fearful
laugh troobled the waters! They eddied in
his throat, and the bubbles floated around his
lips but they rose no higher that he knew
again aud again his bosom heaved with a
deep sob, as he drew in his breath, and gave
it forth anew in agony. A minute had pas
sed since the salt sea touched his lips; this
was impossible if the tide still flowed; he
could reason so much. He opened his eves,
and faintly murmured forth "O God be
merciful!" The flow of the ocean had in-
eed ceased; there he still st6od motionless;
but praying and weeping thinking of his
beloved home, and hoping that his place
there might not be for ever vacant. The
waters in a short time subsided, and ho was
enabled to stretch his chill limbs, and then
to warm them by exercise. Soon the rock
was left dry as before, and the fisherman
knelt down upon that desolate spot among
the billows hid his face in his hands, and
praised aad blessed his Creator his Preserver!
Oh! it was the well-known bark of his
faithful dog that he heard above tho waves;
in another moment the creature was licking
his pale cheek. He was saved bo was sa
ved for his own boat had touched the shore,
and bis own boy was in his arms! He had
been drifted to the land, and had easily
found those who rowed hard for the chance
of saving his father's life.
"Now homeward, homeward!1' he ex
claimed. "Homeward, homeward!'' echoed
the child, and Neptune jumped and barked
at the welcome sound.
The fisherman's family wero still suppli
cating Providence upon the hillock that
overlooked the deep, when the old man
started from -his knees, and exclaimed
" We "are 'heard T there is a speck "upon the
distant waters."
"Where, where!" was echoed by tho
group; and he pointed out what he hoped
to do tne absent boat. They eagerly strain
ed tneir eyes but could see nothinsr: in a
few minutes, however, all perceived a sail;
still it was impossible to tell the direction in
which its course lay.
lhen was the agony of suspense; it con
tinued, however, but for a short time; a boat
was evidently advancing toward the shore;
pay the last farthing of their present indebt
edness, principal and interest. The force of
publie opinion will, ere long, oe strong, dui
the measure cannt be avoiaeu.
Overland Mail to thk Pacific Seth
Sweetser, Esq., U. S. Consul at Guayaquil,
has presented a memorial to congress, asking
for the establishment of a regular line of pack
ets from the United States to Chagres, (Isth
mus of Tanama.) and an overland mail to tho
Pacific. At present we are indebted to Brit
ish colonial post offices for all, or nearly all,
our correspondence by way of Panama. The
growing importance, of our commerce in the
Pacific, from Cape Horn to Nootka Sound
our intercourse with the Sandwich Islands
and China and our extensive interests con
nected with the whale fishery in those seas
all concur in recemmending the proposi
tion of Mr. Sweetser to tho attention of our
Government. New Grenada has recently
pened the Isthmus as a highway of nations ,
and it seems but natural that the second
commercial power in lhe world, geographi-
cally so near to the Isthmus, should pront by
the opportunity. JV. Y. Jour. Com.
A War with England. The Lcndon cor
respondent of tha New York Evening Post,
writes that the rrench who have siezed tho
Marqueas Islands, in the Pacific, have com
mencednot colonization, but fortification!
It appears that this grand stroke of policy is
the result of a ieeling which prevailed some
time ago, that war with England was inevi
table, and that these Islands would be a grand
station for the French and American ships of
war; for the French seem to arrange both
for the Americans and themselves, and cal
culate, with great confidence, upon the U.
States finding a pretext for war with Eng
land whenever it shall please i ranee to eet
the example. JV. O. Bulletin.
