I . A figure rose slowly up from the sen r and moved toward i no. sTho face was ‘ i ‘ while and rigid, the eyes glased and va . j cant, the lips colnrloj*. while the froten , . j ciirle of dark brown iiair, that clustered I [ about t ho tempferC stTr re JrfaT to the? breathings of the wind. I knew the! , conntcuance well—it was that of my ahip ; tnate William Gleei. Within ten fathoms * ;of the vessel, he enme to sudden pause, j i fixing his eyes steadily upon my face. Then bis right hand slowly lifted, and was i laid upon bis breast, in the region of Lh * j heart His lips parted, and in a voice of ; bellow monrnfulncss be spoke: i “It is still,” said Lc; “frozen in mj ' i bosom. Write home to ray mother, and ■ tell her that she will sou me* no more ! i I am dead !” • A gust of wind swept bowling by. A huge drift of ice crushed aginst the ship's j side. There was a loud thumping noise. ! ; like the tramp of many feet. The spectre vanished from my sight, and I nwoke to' , find myself, not standing by the lee rail j of the vessel, but auugly rucked up in my ! buuk. | “Bang, bang! bang!” (at the foreces ;Ho scuttle.) “All hsuds rho-o-o-y I i I Stand by the boats.” (Bang! hang! I i bang !j “l>’ye bear down there ? Tumble ’ up! tumble up! tumble up!” j This shrill hail, piercing the ears of the | watch below, and to which their dreams ■ gave way like so much smoke before a. i violent puff of wind, caused the men com- J ; posing the watch to leap almost eimultane-! 1 ously from their respective bunks, snu i : dress themselves in the quickest time pos-j j e.b!e. William (Jlcn. the young seaman.) I whose ghost had greeted my sleeping vi- j ’ sion a juomeut before, was now pulling on ', his boots, his cheeks all aglow, and his eyes sparkling with ardor. But their whs no leisure at present for j relating my dream to him. Whales were I I in sight, and the voice of the mate could i, already he heard, impatiently shouting!, for the crew of his boat. !, Pants, boots and jackets having been hastily adjusted, we rushed pell-mell up • t the forecastle steps and made our appear-: aiiee on deck. Emerging thus from our warm quarters below, the icy chill of the; cold Arctic breexe was keenly felt; for.! notwithstanding the lateness of the season, when every whaler but ur own had prob ably forsaken there waters—notwilhstand- ’ ing that wo were in danger of being shut ! out from the Pacific lv ihe masses of ice ; ; accumulating in Uhering’s Straits—the! captain of the Lycurgus had refused to budge one iscb from his present latitu-i* which was seventy-three degress north, | until he should Mitered iu capturing om : mure whale. j And now we might all predict that his j wish was about to be gratified, for as wo, glanced over the ship’s bow, we caught i sight of-lhree large bow-heads to leeward. 1 slow ly gliding aLong the edge of an iee- • field in the distance. The boats wore soon got in readiness: the order to lower away was given, and they dropped into the water. With the* main sail and jib of each boat spread to i the breeze, and our paddles briskly bin noiselessly parting the waves, wo wore' 1 soon gliding swiftly iu the direction of tin ; j whales, who were now übeut one mile and’ j a half distant, still pursuing their course : along the edge of the ice-field. Presently they turned flukes and wen* *: down. The men were then ordered to* stop paddling, and having proceeded u| ; little further, the boats were brought up i into the wind to wait for the next rising i As I sat upou tlie gunwale of the one to which I belonged, and my eyes wan-*, dered to the larboard boat, which was a1 { little ahead of the rest, and which cen- j | tained William Glen amoug its crew, I ex- j ; perienced a strange and unaccountable; j feeling of uneasiness—a sort of presenti- I ment. that for a few moments weighed | heavily upon my spirits. Almost instau . taneously with this sensation my thoughts 1 ; reverted to the disagreeable dream from , ) which 1 had been so suddenly aroused on J shipboard. j With a powerful effort of my will, how : ever, I succeeded in shaking off these ; gloomy impreasious; and the rising of the ! whales soon afterward turned my thoughts • into a different chanue). The fish having changed their course a! little, while under water, were now going dead to leewerd. The jib and main sheets of the various boats were accordingly stacked off, our paddle* again pul in requi- , sit ion, and with a good breeae filling our sails, we went dancing merrily upon our ; j way, to the music of the waves that rippled } around our bows. The mate still took the lead, and was i Row about a quarter of a mile ahead of us. ■ The nearest one of the whales was not; lather than that from hia boat, aud we hud do doubt that he would succeed in striking ’ !thi* fish, ere he again turned flukes to go down. But the sun, which was now low in the heavens, had become obscured by a man of dull, vapory clouds, and wc could per ceive (hat a mist was beginning to gather up I ** the waters. It had already shrouded rho ship from our sight, and was rolling slewly toward us. A few moments later,, and we could scarcely diwern the sail of the larboard bolt, wbtht those attorn irere entirely shut out from our r*ww. Nevertheless, with the game so near him, the mate was not i deposed to give up the chase, and it was jiml !on curtained ; his craft entirely from oir vision, as it ! continued to speed upon its way. Snddea- I ly the well-known cry of*‘Give it to him!” followed by a wild rushing of waters, and 1 the order to “-Stem all!” with the succeed ing hum of the whale-liuc. as it ran j around the logger-liead. and the exultant i shouts ef the crew , announced to ua that he had got fast. With the quickness of j lightning, oar sails were rolled up, while each man bent to his oar, exerting all the 1 strength, will and energy of which he was master. In the thick mist which now prevailed. ‘ W' could only direct our course bv the j ! sound of the running line, and the blasts ’ of the mate’s horn, as he blew at intervals upon the instrument. Bat these noises grew fainter and fain rcr each moment, until at length they l died away in the distance, aud wo could i : h'*ar them no more. The shadows of night were now begin iiimgto add their gloom to that of the j mist, and remarking **ibat it was useless to search for the mate any longrr. who had probably, ere now, cut from his a hale. ’ our officer decider] to return to the ship This however, wo found to be ! a pretty difficult task, but as wc had taken J the bearings of the vessel before the mist i set in. we succeeded in reaching her at Inst i We found the oth.r two boats, who had j returned to the ship about half an hour ' previously, safely looted upon their j cranes; but that of the mate was still ab sent. j Lights were accordingly bung up is the ship’s horns kepi sound- ; ing almost continually, the main-topsail was hauled stack, the halyards of the fore nnd mizzen let go. and the wheel put hard down; for, fearful of increasing the din- i lance between the vessel and the boat If he proceeded, the captain thought it best j bring kix ship up into the wind, aud re main stationary until morning, provided the absent ones did nut return before that lime, ; But the vessel waited, the horns .sound ed, and the signal lights burned in vain. ' The long dark night wore drearily away, aud the feeble dawn began to creep into the mist. Presently the latter cleared, ; rolling hack to the horison where it re mained rising up against the sky like a ' hank, and the sun flashed down upon the cold blue waves, aud upon the icebergs around us. The captain mounted aloft with his spyglass and remained there some time. But wh-*u he descended he brought no favorable report. Sky, water audio wore the objects to be seen. The main yard was then braced forward. ■ and the fore and tuizen topsail hoisted to : their proper levels. The wind increased, the sails swelled, and I?ic Zvangrs forged ! ahead, with the coll while spray flying ! around her bows. j Th e men at the mast-heads, were now ordered to keep u good lookout for the missing boat, and for t his purpese the best hands aml the sharpest eyes in the ship had teen stationed upon the cross trees. 1 In this way the hours wore on. and pacing the deck with sad hearts and glooinv ( brows, the men composing the watches I would every now aud then glance up aloft to see whether there was aught in the behavior of the lookouts to show that \ they beheld anything which h*re rcsem- j blauce to the missing craft. At length it: struck eight bells and wc wore ordered to get our dinners, but there were some of 1 us who could scarcely cat a morsel as we ! reflected upon the probable sufferings of' the absent boat’s crew, aud vainly looked to the opposite sides of onr chests, for the faces of chums who were wont to take j their meals with us. But their customa ry shares of meat and duff were carefully | cut owl and preserved, for we still clung to the belief chat we would again have them alive ana well on bward the ship—to hard it is to realize the loss of thow friends who have been linked to our hearts i by habit, association, and peril. Ihe day passed without bringing the' boat, or anything which resembled it, to our view, and another night—the coldest that we had yet experienced, even in this ! freezing ‘latitude—darkened around us. ! Ami all through this night—the same as! during the proceeding nne—the ship’s! horns were kept sounding, and the lighted lanterns hung up ir. thu rigging with no) better result. Another morning dawned npon ns, and | the men were again stationed at the mast-! beads. The yards of the Zyangus had been squared, and she was bow running before the wind at the rale of about eight' knots an kttur. e i \ This 6>rc4Bomt wore away like the pre vious one; tali** as It struck eight bells. i and the larholjp watch, to which 1 be s longed, w|. hHHR to be relieved, there -' came down ziii||j||iicon*ly from all three r | mastheads, a which made the blood I thrill wildly mltkery heart. \ i “Sal! O ! I boat right ahead !” “How fijr MTI .outed the captain. I j “About four sales off, is the ice. Can I just make out the mast booming up in the t, base *” answered[th lookout, i ' The captain ysfxed ’lflaf Kpy-glass, and t * Having ordered the helmsman to keep the ship a stoiidy he was atccriug nor hie A... • men might have been seen iuterspersed t about every elevaled part ef the ship, all anxious to behold the welcome sight. Nor were we long kept in suspense, for , as the vessel continued steadily to lessen ‘ the intervening distance, we were soon enabled to discern the outlines of the boat, j and, a little later, the forms of the men j seated in her. Presently the captain descended, am] , vve noticed (hat his countenance wore a ! troubled look. He stepped up to the soc ond mate, and said something to him in a low tone, which caused the latter to start ; and turn pule. “I only suspect so,” continued the cap- 1 tain, in a voice which was this time audi-1 ble to us, “from the looks of things; but,' ; 1 may be mistaken, after all.” The haze which hang over the ice, | had now thickt oid into a mist, complete ly shrouding the craft from our view; ami 1 about ten minutes afterward the captain had the cdiip brought into the wind, and ordered the starboard aud wai>t boats to be lowered. This was soon done, and a few vigorous strokes of our oars, brought us to the edge of the ice-fold. Pushing our way through the icc, vc were not long iu reaching the spot occupied .by (be long missing boat; and then the j sight which greeted our eyes was enough ! ,to have moved the hardest heait with mingled pity aud horror—for, scuted in j their proper places (the five oarsmen UfOn ; j their thwarts aud the mate iu the stern), these six men were as motionless as though they hid been turned into stone. Their heads were bowed upon their bosoms—: | their eyes closed, and their features white, j still aud rigid. The terrible reali y now 1 forced itself upon ua —they had been ; frozen to death I i Upon examining the line we perceived that only a few fathoms remained iu the i tub, and that they - had cut from their whale not long after having fastened to: i him. But by that time it is probable that the fish had towed them many mil> s from the ship, and they were then arable to find the vessel, owing to the thick mist which prevailed. How long th;y had | continued their search, ere giving way to i the benumbing influence of the cold j and sinking into that sleep from which there is no awakening, we oould not say ; but ure judged that this last had taken place during the early part of the pre cee.l ug aight. ; The boat with its crew was conveyed .to the ship, and the burial service was .performed on the u< xt day.
