I finally resolved to take the man, and
run the risk. I gave him the birth of my

his duties, and was not long in proving him
self a thorough seaman. Within sis.hours
from the time of installing Gilbert darboy

For s-week I overlooked my metal; move-

and yet there were times when I did not feel

At this point we were interrupten by the
entrance of a third person, and the coriver ,

From that tithe until are 'deleted this
Mediterranean I said ne - MOre to my mate
upon the subject of hie secret; but yet I
was not easy. Therb were times wh I re

and when I asked Myself feared I

not help it. I Could see that he tried to
please me—that he even discommoded Mtn
self to accomidate me.—lfehever hesitated
to move when I spoke' and never questioned
any 'of my opinions. This was the more
strange because touch was evidently not his
nature. lie was naturally proud and inde
pendent, and impatient of restraint; and it
was not a legitimate conclusion that some
powerful motive lel him to restrain him
self BO wondefully before me?
But the secret was coming to the surface;
On the °reran, ef,the-feurth day after
leaving Gibraltar, the suns went down in a
leaden cloud, and before eight o'clock the
wind was blowing furiously from the south
west; but I did not apprehend any trouble,
as we took it very near astern, with plenty
of open sea ahead. At midnight I called
Otlliert Carboy, and gave the ship . into his
charge. The course to be kept through the
nigh was east-north-east The main-sail
was ur o , an. a .ou o-rec in tle ore

to my mate after I had given him all need

he had supposed so; and with this ho turned

sat for half an hour at my table. looking
over my chart, and then I started to goo on

the ladder I stopped, and finally turned
back What started me up I cannot tell;
but I went back because I. feared that my
mate might think I Mistrusted him if I
went on deck. At length I turned in my
cot ; and I think I lay there tmother half
hour before I went to sleep.
How tong I bad slept I cannot tell; but
was awakened from an uneasy slumber by
the . peouliar mosion of the ship. I started

he then confessed to me his secret. It has
a periodical insanity which he had inherit

had he been thus attacked while on dut at

could not obtain a berth on shipboard.

madness back upon me."

remarried that he Amid take pleasure in

For three mbnths they lived hakely to
gather, for it was in the height of the season
and bbtWe'en Cape May, Newport, Saratoga
and the White Mountains, they were • alone
with each other scarce three hours out of
twenty-four ; consequently it was impossi
ble for thent to disagree. But the season
was soon over and they returned to their

excitement— no fashionable Mrs. A. to out •
dress, no profligate Mr. B. to outdo in.

but the • other half.'
After a season of long continued lately
there necessarily follows one of extreme
dullness ; and when one is dull one ie eaa

have roast turkey and oyster sauce. He'd
have beef or nothing.' She'd have turkey,
and thus coninutnced the war of the Sus
hans. One ordered the Butler not to have
fowl, the other gave strict instructions not
to have beef, while Mre. S. visited her friends
and partook of turkey. .
