[Written fct the Free*.] An Adventure in the Pacific# BY ONE WHO WAS THEBE. “ Keep a sharp look out aloft there, my lad,” rung out the cheery tones of our natty little skipper, as he turned his gaze upwards to the fore topgallant croas-trecs—“a sharp look out— and do you hear, a double eagle to the man who sights the first whale.” The good ship Champion, ot New Bedford, eleven mouths out and “clean,” was at this time rolling lazily along before the wind, mak ing passage towards the off shore ground, upon the edge of which she was but entering. To the master of a whaler, on his first voyage in that capacity, the days that creep slowly along after bidding farewell to the owners, seem as weeks, until, with his first whale alongside, iie finds his voyage fairly begun, and something else than salt water filling the casks from which he has been obliged to abstract “provisions and profits to no small amount.” Somcwnat despondent, though generally hopeful, Captain Hazard looked, as lie stood there on the try-works, the very picture of a man battling courageously withtortune. Turn ing at last to the mate, an old, weather beaten Nantuckctman who stood at the vise-bench at work on a steering-strap,—“Mr. t^arey, all I ask is hut a commencement; let me but put two streaks of the old ship's copper under water, with oil ballast, aud over to the Saudwicli Islands we go to recruit for a season in the Arctic. “Sperm oil or no port,” was now the subject of much discussion, especially among us of the forecastle, and many an eyo was strained over the green bosom of “ old treachery,” to catch the lifting spouts that would give us a run ashore. Since leaving the Azores, a month af ter our departure from home, we had “banged it about” for ten weary months, from the coast of Africa across to the Biver La Plata aud around Cape Horn, and but sixteen barrels of blackfisb oil had passed through our “cooler.” Jack, with less interest in the success of the voyage than the officers, is a sorry biped after ten months fare upon hard tack and salt beef. Brooding through the day watch upon his un happy lot, and growling along in his night vigils, he becomes thoroughly morose aud sel fish, and losing all care for the present, thinks only of the future and a run ashore. “Sperm oil or no port’’—and our thirty-six malcontents before the mast, opened wider their eyes as each in turn took his look-out from mast-head. . Three days after the golden promise of the skipper, my turn came tor a look-out, and in the middle of the morning watch was sent aloft. We were then near the middle of what is called the “off shore ground,” and since our entering it had seen not one blow or “white water” save that made by a solitary tin-hack and a school of porpoises. eagerly, then, as cue sun painted up the Bast, j did I scan the magnificent expanse before mo; ■ and as the morning’s glory crept down from [ truck to top-mast, from top-mast to yard and I thence to the hull of the old Champion, the j twinkling, dancing, rippling wave seemed like | a coquettish belle throwing about her face a pink veil with which to heighten her charms. Nothing, nothing; and I was fast relapsing into reverie, in which my friends, like shad ows, passed before mcj their f.iaes daguerreo typed upon my brain in tho same sad expres sion as at parting, when my eye became rivet ed upon something on the horizon which seem ed like a sail, disappearing at intervals, and which I accounted for by the heaving and rolling of the sea. Again, again and again— and by the bushy appearance of the fancied sail, I knew, I/elf, that a veritable sperm whale had made its appearance. With my eye still fixed upon it, I gave the peculiar cry, appreci ated so fully by wbaemeu, “ There she blows—blow-o-o-s—blow-o-o-sl” Firemen at their work, soldiers in battle, pol iticians in debate, could not he more alert, more determined, more excited, thau were the forty-five souls comprising the crew of the Champion, as that sound broke upon tlieii unprepared ears. In less than ninety seconds every man was on deck, the watch below having hurried up with their unmentionables in hand, hardly knowing, in their drowsiness, whether the ship or themselves was over board. “ Where away?” instantly demanded the third mate, who headed the larboard watch, to which I belonged, mounting th. main rigging as he spoke, nor stopping till well over the futtock shrouds. Two points on the lee beam.” “ Keep her off a couple of points.” The " olu man,” (as the captain is usually called, with spy-glass in hand, soon stood on the fore top-gallant yard by my side, in a most ridiculous style of undress uniform, and as his eye caught the welcome white-water ahead, he called out: “ Get your boats ready, fore and aft!” With ready will the tubs of line were passed into the boats, oars unlashed, neglected boat kegs refilled, while the several boats’ crews gathered together on the rail near their res pective stations, were eagerly looking out for the time when the spout should be seen from off deck. Aloft, sundry exclamations were heard at intervals, such as “ there she white waters,” or “there she lop-tails,” while perhaps a so liloquy might be heard from the captain of “there’s his old hump." “ Haul up the mainsail, Mr. Carey; we are full near enough,” said the captain as he kept his eye still fixed on the leviathan which continued to gambol, unaware of the approach of its pursuers. “ There goes flukes,” shouted a dozen voices at once, as the mighty fish throwing its huge flukes high in air, descended into the depths below. “ Who’se got that wheel, there,” shouted the skipper, thoroughly vexed, as the ship yawed off a point or two from her course.— “ Throw the lubber overboard, and put a man in his place;” and Bill Barker, thoroughly abashed at this rebuke, gave up the wheel to a boatsteerer. “Haul back the main yard!” now came from aloft, and “ clear away the bow and waist boats ” soon followed. “ Come on here, bow-boat’s men,” shouted the third mate. “Where’s my boat’s crew?” yelled the sec ond officer, and hoist and swing, lower away fore and aft, and over the side jumped the lads, tumbling over their oars, stepping into the line tubs, jamming their fingers against the ship’s side, in their various attempts to put in their boat pins, while with a smothered curse at I heir stupidity from the boatsteerer, and a thump or two from the boat’s-header, the boats finally shove astern of the ship, where their oars are shoved out, and “lined” and the order given to pull ahead. Receiving instructions to pull to the spot from which the whale disappeared, the boats proceeded but a short half mile, when the or der was given to “ heave up,” and each man was cautioned to look over his oar for the re appearance of the whale. The “ irons,” as the harpoons are technically termed, were now placed in their “ crotches ” or rests, while the lanoes were cleared away from the sides of the boat, to serve for ready action. Six persons comprise the crew of a whale boat, which is made sharp at both ends to obviate the necessity of turning around when necessary to remove from too close proximity to the whale. The boatsteerer pulls the for ward, or what is called the harpooneer oar.— No. 1 pulls the how, No. 2 the midship, No. 3 the tub, and No. 4 the after oar. The boat header, or officer in command, takes the steer ing oar, holding it until the boatsteerer (who refinquishes his oar in time to strike the whale) has fastened. The tub, containing many fathoms of compactly coiled line, made of manila, occupies a place between Nos. 3 and 4. A loggerhead, shaped something like a hat block, stands in a firm position in the stern sheets of the boat, ami close under the boat header’s right hand. From tne tuD, tne line takes one turn around the loggerhead, back again, and acrcss the oars to the forward part ot the boat, in which is cut a slot or groove. Through this the line passes and is bent on to the “irons.” These latter are light, slender barbs, into the sockets of which are fitted oaken poles, eight feet in length, for the purpose of giving additional force and impetus to the instrument, which is intended merely to fasten to and hold the whale until the lance takes its life. They may be thrown by a strong arm with tolerable cor rectness of aim to a distance of thirty feet. Upon fastening to the whale, the word is given to “change ends” at which the officer leaves the steering-oar and takes his place in the head of the boat, the boatstcerer’s further duty being simply to tend the line and to steer the boat. It was ray lot to be bowman of the third mate’s boat, and as I sat there looking over my oar, and wondering where the whale would “break water,” it seemed to me as I gazed, that the bow boat never looked so small or the ship so large, as, viewed from our little cockle shell, she graceiuUy rolled and lifted upon the heav ing breast of that summer ocean. We had waited perhaps half an hour, when Mr. Brown, our boat-header, suddenly ex claimed with the tone and gesture of a mad man, “ Down to your oars, you devils I—every man pull hard; spring hard, spring, bovs: there’s his old hump—an eighty barrel whale,” aud, accompanying each breath with a vigorous push upon the after oar, his eyes dilated with fiorcc excitement, as, catching sight of the whale ahead, ho seemed like a fieud to our 9tartled selves swooping down upon an cscap- j floth^boats were now darting like arrows in pursuit of the monster, who had broken water at a distance from us of a half mile; and as wo bent our backs to tl!e task before tis, we could seo two other boats pulling away from the ship’s side. “Spring hard my sons, oh do spring,” coax ed our boat-header, as he perceived we were rapidly coming up with the whale ‘‘Only lay me alongside of that 'fish, and I’ll givo each man a pound of tobacco. PuH bard you sarpints, pull, if you would go ashore again.” Pull we did, hard and strong, making the the ashen blades bend like reeds. A most ex citing race wo now bad; and, cheered by the promises and energy of our officer, on we sped the oars springing and buckling, promises anti threats sounding, when, as we come nearer the object of onr pursuit, the officer’s voice falls to a whisper— “Pull, my good”boy s; there he lays like an old fool—there he rolls; pull, my beauties; there he lays like a log on the water; five dol lars apiece, boys, only get me alongside; pull, men, pull; only two ship’s lengths off; pull, pull;’ and his voice dying away to a whisper he passed the word to the boateteerer—“peak your oar, Ned, and stand up/* , € Grasping the “iron” firmly in both hands the boatsteerer stands with compressed lips and dilated nostrils, while the boatheader with mo tions only encourages us to spring on, till sud denly in a voice of thunder, he cries, “give it to him, Ned—stern all, give him another—fltera all—hard, you wretches, if you value llle stern, steru” and amidst white waters to which our boat seemed fixed immovably, wo gather up the back* hand stroke and sBm on out of our first peril. . . ^Ain^\„ Upon being struck, the whale sounded, making no show of resistance, and we began to feel that we hadmade an easy conquest. Each man sat with his face towards the head of the boat, waiting for the animal to finish sounding, while the line with its single turn around the loggerhead run out through the “chocks” with incredible speed, the slight check bringing a wreath of smoke irorn the timber around which it spun. Our work soon commenced, however, for “slack line" quickly proclaimed the whale to be tired of “plumbing it,” and that he was now coming again to the surface. Gathering in the slack which was coiled down loosely in the stern sheets, we commenced to haul line, the boat steerer keeping a sharp watch at the logger head, checking the line as the whale would go ahead, and again coiling down as we would gain ground. Another boat’s waif set—and another, three boats fast to whales. Good bye company, for us. The Captain and first mates had each struck a fish, having raised a school just after the boats had left the ship. Three hours had passed and we had been unable as yet to get near enough to throw a lance, and the whale making a straight wake for the windward. He was now thoroughly aroused, and as our offi cer expressed himself, was going “eyes out.”— W e had held him at a short line, hut through repeated soundings and sudden darts he had kept out of the reach of our lances. The ship was now but a speck «n the horizon, and the whale still moving. Now I prayed within my self that those irons would “draw.” but Ned had buried them to the “hitches,” and with us it was either “cut or kill." To cut the line was our “labor for our pains.” To kill our fish was three thousand dollars worth of oil, and a sure run into port. “We’ll nave that whale, even if we never see our mothers again,” exclaimed Mr. Brown,— “so hold on to him Ned, if he takes ns to Tahi ti.” Slack line again; and we hauled with a will. The whale was getting fatigued, and we were shortening the distance between us. “Haul hard, my lads—two boats’ length more and I’ll fix his grave/’ saying which, with lance in hand, and motioning to Ned he jumped up on the bow of the boat, and with the strength of despair hurled the weapon through the air a distance of fifty feet and buried it deep into the vitals of the monster. “Sla-k line—slew round and take your oars every mother’s son of you—hard, boys hard." **•••*## I remember the flight of the lance through the air—the orders of the mate,—the boiling and bubbling of the waves—the sight of the monster as with open jaws he rushed upon us. and I still hear shrieks and the crashing of the cedar as the enraged whale in his agony struck the stern of the boat, and I see a bruis ed and lifeless form floating near me as I clutched the oars, from which I had parted be fore being rescued by the waist boat. Poor Ned and two others had perished, three only of us having been saved, by the most oppor tune arrival of the second mate’s boat, which had worked up to windward during the latter part of the contest. One hundred and fifty barrels of oil, came along side of the Champion before sun down, and the skipper in the goodness of his heart gave me a double eagle, as I stepped aboard the boat to spend on my “liberty-day” ashore at Talcaho.no.
