IXCIOE1TS or HPKRM WHALING. fProm the Boston Traveler.] The good barbae Ku?b as? lying becalms] off tin? >\ mt en?l ot ( elebw, with a large iperm whale alongside, ready to be cut in. The sea was smooth as a pond, and the sun as hot as biases. " In board there shouted the mate, who Was on a stage over the side '? in board there, ahoy! ' ' ** Sir,'* was the response " Whose hook on is it "Mine, responded a voice frjrn the half , k- and up bounded Tom. a smart young boatsteerer. with nothing on but a pair of draw ers In a couple of winks he ma le a dash at the open gangway overboard, for he was a good swimmer, but unluckily his foot slipped and indeed of jumping outside of the whale, which was evidently his intention, the back of his head struck the ridge of the whale, and he went down with bis hands extended Over his head. All who saw him supposed he was go ing down a fathom or two to cool off, and ex pected him up again in a few scoonds, but not appearing soon. tbe Li'?n along the gangway and the mates upon the stages roared out? '? He s gone ! save him, boy? ! ' and in a second hve ot our best swimmers plunged after him. and a boat was lowered at tbe same time. But it was at! in vain; poor Tom ruse no more : eveu the men who plunged after him only saw a shoal of sharks descending in the direction they supposed he was siuking No doubt he w*s devoured in less than live minntes after he jumped overboard. Shoals of sharks general ly keep company with whalers, especially when they Lave whales alongside, aud dash at every thing that is thrown overboard. They would eat a whale s blubber in a night, if not kept off by spades aud lances These sharp instru ments are appreciated by them?they seem to kn >w that their touch is death, and instinctive ly keep a respectable distance, until the car cass i< surrendered to them in due form ; then they have a blow out. and a free fight without interference fan salt beef surgeons. Poor Tom had taken his last dive. The boat, after pulling astern, following tbo set of the cur rent a reasonable time, returned and was hoist el up in silence. The men were too oppressed withgrief to sing the ujual song, and walked f >rward without exchanging a word. The cap tain had walked the quarter deck full fivo min utes, apparently lost in thonght. when the man at the mast-head sung out, ?? There she blows? tbero again?there's two of them." "Where away?*' demanded the captain J springing into the main rigging. ?'Right astern, sir; large whales! There gw? rfukes. headed across the ship's wake to port There ?ho blows; there again." contin ued the lookout, and soon the captain and males were up ale g ide of him. -Clear away the boats !" shouted the cap tain,'aud getready toloweraway ; down from alott Ship-keej-er away aloft and keep a good look-out. ? All hands were on the move. full of life and animation. Poor Tun was forgotten in the ex citement of tfe moment It was not until the captain s boat had dropped astern that be re called to mind the fate of his boatsteerer by his absence from the bow of the boat; but seeing the cabin-boy looking over the taffrail. he sun - out : ? ? Jump everboard. Bill, and 1 11 pick you up. I want you to pull the after oar.1 ^ ith?<ut a moment a hesitation. Bill was over board. a fathom deep, but rose to the surfate like a cork, and was dragged aboard. Now. said the captain, who was a jovial young fellow, and delighted to identify himself with the humors of tbe crew, ' you, Parson, pull the harpooner oar ; I II give "you a chance t.. fasten, if we have the good luck to get upon the whale ; but mind, if you miss, I'll drive a lance through you." The young man whom he addressed as Par son had obtained the title by trying to teach a couple ol New Zelanders to read the Bible All the man had by names, such as Long Boy. Broadsword. Jack Ketch, Livercomplaint UhWMtiNi, Lajarus, Ac., and these names were more used than those on the " Articles." This was the Parsons first voyage whaling j aini the voyage was yet young, as there were only 30V barrels of oil on board, and the ship I c ?uld Stow l.SdO barrels. The death of Tom had given him a lilt, which of right belonged to some eiperienced spjutcr, of whom there were seve ral among the crew, and ho felt determined to ?how himself worthy of the place the captain had assigned him. ?? Pull my boys?spring to your oars?bend your backs said the captain, grinding his teeth and pushing at the after oar with all his might. i all and head the mate?that's you, auother stroke like that, my hearties ; there she goes ; ihf flits, hurrah ! the mate drops?now we I#ad?c4F the goes!" " Th? whale s up, sir,* said the Parson, In terrupting the captain, on tbe larboard bow.? io he is, and it s our chance. Peak your oars, boys, and take to tbe paddles. " I he order was promptly obeved. and we were seated along the gunwales pad lling like Malays The whale was about half a mile off going at the rate of three knots an hour aud blowing as lei surely as a blacksmith's bellows Don t make a not-e. my lads,' whispered the Cr-Ptta,.n; ?P Jour P3(lfJlej clear of the *ides of th* L^at. \V hat a hoble fellow he is?gray* headed, a regular patriarch. Now. Parson if you m:s.? him, I'll kill yon?mind be'sgoodfor *5 barrels, yes. 90 ; perhaps 100. aud to miss bim deserves death?two deaths?eh. boys*? Hush ' take your paddle* ont of the water?he swells oakum?no he doe^n t; paddle away!' We were following in his wake, and as the sun was shining on his starboard side, the captaiu concluded the glare would half blind him, and enable u< to appr.*eb without being seen, and eteerod the boat accordingly. It really grand to see tbs noble fellow ploughing alon-so gently, the wat-r curling over his back as if"he were bathing for the benefit of his health, aud enjoying the pleasure. Stand up. I ar*?u said the captain, firmly, though in a whi'per, hii eyes -laring as if thej would leap from their sockets. lue boat's boat was square with the whale's bump nol more than eight feet off; the Parson hold the iron .harj^ou) by the middle careless ly in hts left hand ; the men still paddled, just keeping wa\ with the whale, while the captain was gradually edging the boat, head ou aud stern off. ? Dart." whispered the captain; but the Parsou whispered back " Lay on " ?? Dart. I tell you. jou re near enough !" " Lay on !" was *tiil the response of the P?rs->u - There, blast you, there's lay on and have your boa I knocked off ' giving the boat a weep on with the steering oar This time there wa* uo order to dart, nor was it neocasa ry ; for the Parson, in order to give inert a ed Telocity to the harp>>u. sprang into the box ef the boat and sent one iron after the other s-x'ket-up into the whale, just abaft the fin; then juiupiug down into his proper place, he ?eised a lance, but before he could bring it to hear, the whale iairiy >praug out of water at least six feet and came down with a splash that shrouded the boat in form as if she had been immersed in the ruins of a water spout. "Mem bard." shouted the captain? stern for your live*.' and the men bent to tbeir oars ainid the whirlpool created by the motion of the whale. Bui the Parson, true to his origi nal purpose. reg?rdle*s of the consequences, while the b?at lay almost against tbe whale's huiiip. sent tbo lance into his vitals aud churn ed it round and round; the eap'.aiu swearing like a maniac (or biia to sit down to his oar and lend a hand to back the boat clear of tbe wfcele. " lis snouts thick blood." said tbe Parson. Mispiasaly, as he exchanged places with the etgtam ; " I did not miss him.'f The whale then went down about fifty fath oms, but was too much used up to remain Ion* below, and when be oarne to blow, lay motion less lor a minute "Lay on." said tbe cap tain. ?and I'll kill him dead ' The order bad uot to be repeated, tbe Parson sent tbe stem of tbe boat square against tbe wbalt iid?j "P1*10 WttS *bout picking out a 90ft rand Ini", *"Ce' Wb*" tb? whale milled short U irntllon corner of.bis fluke, laid orfr u/.i **>?*? gunwale, and tipped hor hlJ hand inPh M * ,ad^ would ,urn fl!Ih a u i'n* adleu" But quickly aa a !t^r ?r f1ew 10 th*other -,,,e cot *n" mate's^ I?11 m tW0, 1Dd broke th? thirJ mate a log. Hero was a pretty mess: twelve smners overboard in bloody wafer, surrounded by sharks, and at tbe same time liable to be stu&nhed in piece* by the whale s flukes; but L??Ve?Crail u Pa!r,nrch ?rP?rently satisfied with what ho had done. left us to the care of the UatVii Pa,ldleJ aw"?y with two irons and a To right our boat was tbe work of a few min utes and in half an hour she wa? an ark of V J1 U w' * ?n b<"lrd Th? wh?'? made towards the ship, ran round and round a and then turned up fin out and head sunwards Ho made S?5 barrels of oil. Tb.-rt.Md second mate, unable to capture the other whale, returned to the ship; but that sain* afternoon the parson .aw him. or another fellow like him, and had the pleaauro of fasten ing hun also, ihc three whales made 270 bar rels of oil. * In si* weeks the Parson saw and struck four large and twelvo school whale#, and never missed one. This uniform success induced tbe captain to give him ohargoof the third mate's boat, in which he killed some half dozen whales when be had three of his ribs stove in, and was sent ashore at Guam, to procure medical at \puDiCe' aU remained there six months, w haling is not unliko war?every loworing is i in which all are liable to lose their lives. Hut the whaler re?juiresmorc skill and courage than the soldier or man-of-war's man. He rnu'st think ainl act at the same time?there are no given rules by which bo can govern himself, for every whale he attacks is apt to show some new caper, against which be must provide on the instant. Our whalemen, with a little martial training, would make the most formidable *a:l '.If. ? world. a* they are certainly tbe nust intelligent and daring. ?? ? t ^ | LP*Old Hiram is with us. You don't know iliram and can not understand the mischief he makes by ev erlastinzlv putting in his word when somebody would be better pleased if the half-drunk, balt-witted fellow would keep his mouth shut. 1 I>wk Runnels was running for Congress, Though a lineal descendant from an old and noted tory family. Pick is great at ? and all the more because he has nothing to brag of in that line. Une day, in the height ?'?tioncering appeal, he demands? \\ hose br.-ws were bWkened hv the powder smoke on Bunker Hill ' Whose breasts braved the hailstorm 'here?" ?None of your folks, you blamed old tory you roared out Old Hiram, and the laugh thkt I broke in broke down the orator, and he retired after a tew more incoherent observations. But he was to speak again in a few days and taking old Hiram into bis confidence and treating him liberally to brandy and water, he made a bar gain with Hiram not to interrupt him again, promising him as much brandy as he could drink at the close of the meeting if he kept quiet. I Runnels went on swimmingly. His patriotism ! rose with the tide of hia eloquence, and at length he exclaimed. ?? We cherish tbe useless musket and rusted sabre of our forefathers as holy things. Runnels, R unncis f" ah011 ted old Hiram ; *T can t hold in I 11 pay for the brandy mys;lf but I can t hold in. I^'hem muskets and sabres is too much for old Hiram !" and the maddened roar of merriment that went up drowned old Hiram and Runnels together. 'Is Ga me to Prepare to Sboitt.''?The Menon (Ala) Commonwealth relates the follow ing story : For some time back the negroes of this place religious revival going on in the Methodist Curch, and which, we learn, has re sulted in ?ome good. The other night u ladle cruus incident took place, which for tbe Ume threatened to mar the enjoyment of the darkies hl1? ev?r7 thmg seemed to be going on to the en?Ufie of the leaders of the meeting, a tall, black looking son of Africa deliberate!? rose in the congregation andoommenced pullinlr his coat off. as if preparing either to thrash some other darkey or give the devil, if he were pre sent, tho best fight he could. preparatory to closing the meeting. All eyes were turned upon the comical attitude of the darkey, and some of the more timid began to fear that a melee was about to take place 111 the church. This, how ever. was not the case; for our African convort. seeing the stir that was being made, and the apparent agitation of the whole assembly, hal looed out at the lop of his voice ? 'Brederimr and sisters, don't be frightened, I s only gwine to prepare to shout, and he gave one of those ? nearthly yells which vibrated though the ehurch. and shook the windows as if the hous? were falling The darkey had to make tracks ?r, to use the language of another darkey, was tumbled head foremost right out ofthe door- by Some of the brcthern. SorTHCRS Crookerv. ?The discovery of ?' Caolin,' the fine clay of which china and granite w.irc is m tde, in &outb Carolina and Georgia, has introduced among ua another branch .,f industry, likely to prove of great commercial value to us. As crockery is un ar ticle ot almost universal consumption, we may expect it to become an article of extensive ex portation. The '? Southern Porcelain Manufacturing Company ' have a capital of $50 0<M), and own * *"*1 2o acres of the clay, which is pro nounced to be e'jttal to the* foreign. Their works are abour six miles from Bath, near the couth Caroliua railroad. They have dug down some 24 feet withonr reaching its bottom, and regard the supply as ample for years to come. The company gives employment to some forty persons, ami now turn off some 'oar hundred d .liars worth of ware per week, which will be iocreaped to soiue eight hundred dollars a week as soon a# another kiln is prepared At present their operations are confined to the manufacture of pit<*hers mugs and spit toons, but they will make table ware in a short time. T V years ago 1 was riding from Lan sing to Jackson in Michigan, in a stage-coach, aud before me was a pleasant looking young lady with a volume of poems, which I found to be Ossian s, in her band. The only other pas senger wus a stupid fellow at my side. who was not disposed to talk ; and as tho ride was long and dull. I borrowed the book, and. on the lady's suggestion, read aloud The swellin" sentences rolled as the coach rolled, and 2 read ? * ' As roll a thousand waves to a rock so Swar ran's host came on ; as meets a rock a thousand waves, so Innisfail met Swarran. Death raises all his voices around, aud mixes with the sound of shields Tbe field of echoes? ' Here the gawky at my side, who had already yawned several times, gave a decided groan. I immediately o^ased, aud asked him if uiy read ing disturbed him. expressing my willingness to close the book if it did "Oh, no,' said he?''.Oh, no, go on. lean stan it to set all day aud hear about the ole Revolution ' | .T The present dangerous illness of the kin* of Prussia had it* origau. says * Paris letter, in a too strong dose of tobacco smoke.
