"Oh, sure. I'm as good as at home
'wans't I know the way, barrio' the
wind is conthrary ; sure the nor-aist
coorse 'ill do the business complete."
And so saying Barney descended -the
ship's side and once more assumed the
helm of the hardy hooker.
The two vessels now separated on
their opposite course. What a con
trast-their relative situations afforded !
Prdudly theship bore away under her
lofty and spreading canvass, cleaving,
the billows before her, manned by an'
able crew: and under the guidance of
experienced officers—the finger of sci
ence' to - point the course of her progress,
the faithful chart 'to warn. her 'of the
hidden rock and the shoal, the long-line
and the quadrant to measure her march
and prove her position.. 'The poor lit
tle hooker cleft not the billows; each
wave lifted her on its crest like a sea
bird ;- but the inexperienced fisherman
to manage her ; -dert - tin, meabili to
guide them over the vast ocean they
had to traverse. and tge holding of the
fickle wind the only chance of their
escape from perishing in the wilderness
of waters. By thione: the feeling ex
cited is supreniely that of man's power.
By the other, of.his utter helplessness.
To the one the expanse of ocean could
scarcely 'be considered trackless. -To
the other, St Was a - waste indeed.
Yet the cheer that - burst' froth the
ship at parting- was answered as g'aily'
froth the hooker as though the odds had
not been lo fearfully against her, and
no blither heart on board the ship than

_ The night fell, and i - Barney ,
Stuck to
the helm as.fong as attire could sus
tain want - of rest, and be then left it in
charge of one of his co mpanions, with
particular directions h ow to steer, and
ordered, if any change in the wind oc
curred, th3t they should instantly awake
him. - Hi could not steep long, how

him, and ' the - morning ! had not long :

such a sea, ;caused surprise as before,
and in about 'ail hour she was so close
as to hail, and order the hooker to run
under her lee. '. I
„ The devil ii taste,” said Barney,

Again he was hailed, ~and fired at,
but he persevered in his course, and got
'clear off.
The third day, BavneY's fears - for
the continuty of his nor-aist coorse were
excited, as a large brig hove in sight,
and the nearer she approached, the more
directly she came athwart Barney's
May the divil sweep you," said
Barney, and , will nothtn" else sarve

"Brig -a=hoy !" shouting -Barney giv

and standhig at the bow' of his boat,
Brig-a-boy there! bad luck to - you;

The brig instead, of obeying his man

the hooker. "Oh look atthut," shout.

with rage—' , look at The blackguards

From cursing, Barney went to pray

May the Lord reward you, and get out
o' my nor-aist coarse ! May angels
make your bed in heavin, , and - don't
ruinate me -this a-way." The brig was
immoveable, and Barney gave up lin
despair, having cursed and prayed him
self hoarse and finished with a duet
volley of prayers and curses, together,
apostrophisiag the hard case of a ntan •
being done out o' hisnor-aiet cooree.".

Nothin Tarticular °Courted for the
two. succeeding • days, during which
time Barney most religious pursued
his nor-aist coorse;
,:out the 'lid day
produced a new and important vent.
A sail. was discovered on the ho izon,
and in the direction we was steering, and
a couple of hours made him tolerably
certain that the vessel in sight was an
American_; for though it is needlets to
say he was-not very conversant' . in such
matters, yei.-from, the frequencY of his
seeing American vessels trading; to Ire
land hid eye had Ase Come sufficiently
accustomed to - their lofty and tapering
spars, and peculiar smartness of tig, - to
satisfy him that the= ship befo're him
was of Transatlantic "build;: nor was
be-wrong in his conjecture. •
,Barney now, determined on a mance
uvre, classing' him amongst the first
tacticians'at securing a icod• retreat,—
He calculated, the American was bound
for Ireland, asishe lay almost at; direct
ly in the way Of his noraist coerse,• as
the West Incha brig, he bore up to and
and spoke to her.
He was answered by a shreWd Yan
kee 'captain. 1 •
" Faix an it's glad I am to gee your
honor again," said Barney. ;
The Yankee had never been' to Ire
land, arid ioldlßarney so but that a pi-
lot was wanted for Cove. - /..

e• Is it the Cove of Cork why V'
" Yes." • •
" I was bred an' born there, and
pilots as many, ships into Cove as any
other two min, out of it.
Barney thus sheltered his falsehood
under the idioM of ,his language.
" But, so far Out to

" We Wor out lookin' for ships
that wanted pihits, and there kem an
of the terribleatj gale o' wind aff the

that's the , way iv it your honor."
" Icalculate we got a share of ,tthe

" Oh, dirCeily !" said :Barney ;

The land was soon , neared, and Bar
ney put in-charge ofthe ship, when he
ascertained the first land Mark he was
acquainted with ;
_soon as, the
Head of Kinsale hove insight,
gave a “who," and Cut a, caper that
astonished the Yankees, and was quite -
inexplicable to them, though We natter
ourselves it is not to those who do Bar

In such half-rnnttereil .exclamations .
did Barney , apostrophise each knonn
point of his native shore, and. when
opposite the harbor of Kinsale;
spoke to the -hooker ,:- that wit; ' 'some

Barney sailed the ship into Cove.. it
was the first ship he ever had acted the
pilot for, andlis old luck attended him;
no accident betel his charge, and, What
was still more'extraordinary-,. he made
the American believe he was absolutely,
the,most skilful pilot en, the station.
Barney pocketed' the,pilet's fee, swore
the Yankee' was -a gentleman, for which
'the republican- did - not thank him,
wished him, good bye, and then push
ed his way home with , what 'Barney
swore„was the , easiest made money he
eier hat Lin his life. So. Barney .got
