And my sisters looked at each othor and smiled.

GOING ON A WHALING VOYAGE.
THE PERILS Or THE 011ABi.
"Thd yoke of an old whaleman rings out

" 'Whore away is the whale, and whattd&
you call her 7" queried the captain.
" ‘Sperr i a whale, sir, three points on the
weather bow; not over two miles c4r.'
"'Get your boats ready; Black down the
fires, and stand by to lower away I' -
'"The boats'erows . each stand by their6n
boat; some of tho - • men help to put in the
tub of line, others lay down the boat-tackle,
falls, in such a way that they will run clear.
The boat steerer bends on his harpoons, the
gripes are cast clear of the boats, and now
comes the word, 'Hoist and switigr , In a
moment the bantaare hanging by their tack

word, 'Lower away The mates, in. the
meantime, were aloft, watching the move

i to judge how to
pull for her.
"Now comes the word, 'Lower away In
a moment all the boats are off, and in
chase at a good speed, in Order to see who'
will be up with the whale first. ,
"'Down to your oars lads !' said the cap
tain, in whose boat I was. 'Give way hard!'
Now then, the little boat jumpaagain, send
ing the spray in rainbows from the bows.
'Spring hard, my dear fellows ; if she blows
a dozen times more the mate will fasten.

there he gives her the second one; ho is fast

captain to me; as he laid his boat squire on
to her. In goes two more harpoons and
our boat is fast.
"The whale settled away under water attic
she felt the lance, and I kept a look out fOr
her, expecting she would break miter near
the head of the boat. Pretty soon I saw her
whiten under the water, and got my lance
ready as soon as she should come to the
surface; the next moment I was flying in the
air, and a moTut after was several fathoms
under water. (The r►halo, came up head
foremost, bitting the boat a tremendous
knock under my feet, sending me all flying.'
The Captain at the WO time seized hie

to swim, I hit the whale on the head, and at
the same time saw the boat three or Our

ly right; but it was no use for me to lie still,
and bo picked uplike a quid; so I made'a
regular shove off with my feet against
whale's head, and struck out for the Nat.
I saw that all was confitionln the boat, lend
that tho men did not notice moat all. I
had on thick clothes, and found it hard

were steering away from me as fast as they

ready, and; stopped the hole up, and so we
kept from filling, and pulled up to the whale
"This time she headed to the mate and lay
her whole length broadside toward us. We
had nothing to do but' to pull up and in

time. In twenty minutes she wont Into her

her alongside the ship, and commenced out•

feet round the j largest part of the body,
Her jaw was seventeen and a half feet king,
and her flukes seventeen feet broad. She
stowed tt-down o'fteritendred and twenty.five
barrels of speriti oil." •
The Captain of a whaler gives the follow
ing account of an adventure which came very
near being his last. In giving an account
of the accident and his singular escape, he
said that as soon ad he discovered thdt the
line had caught in the bow of the bohe
stooped to clear it and attempted to throw
it out from the."chock," so that it might
run free. In doing this,he was caught by a
turn round his left wrist, and felt _ himself
dragged overboaid. Ho was perfectly con
scious while ho was rushing down, down,
with unknown force and swiftness; and it
appeared to him that his arm would be torn
from his body, so groat .was the resistance
of the water. , Ho was well aware of his
perilous condition, and that his only chance
of life was to cut the lino. But`he could not
remove'his right arm from his side, to which
it was pressed by theforce - of ,the element
through !hich he was drain. When he first
opened his eyes, it appeared as if a stream
of fire was•passing before them; but as ho
descended, it grew dark; and he felt a teiri•
ble pressure ipon his brain, and a roaring
as of thunder in his ears. Yet ho was con
scious of his situation and made several ef
forts to roach the knife that was in his belt:
At last as he felt his strength failing and hie
brain reeling, the lino for an instant slack
ened ; ho reached his knife, and instantly
that the line became again taut, its edge was
upon it, and by a desperate effort . of.his ex
hausted energies he freed: himself. After
this he only remembered a feeling of sufl'o.
Cation, a gurgling spasm, and all,was over,
until he awoke to an agonized sense of pain
in the boat. . • .
During the present season (1868) the
Chilian whaling bark Conception, Captain
Richard Gould, when off.Chatham Island,
fell in with a school of !arm) sperM whales.
Three !mats, were immediately lciwered in ,
pursuit, that of the , third mate, (Pedro
Robles,Chilian,) being the first to , strike a
large sperm whale, which was no sooner
done than the whale turned uppn the boat
and taking it in its mouth . crushed it to
pieces, killing one man, a native •of Talca•
hanno, and breaking the leg of another.
The boat commanded. by the second mate
then, fastened . on to the same whale, but on
his turning upon the boat
. the men jumped,
overboard and saved themselves,- is a few
seconds afterwards the boat was crushed' to
pieces by his .ponderous jaws.. The fourth
mate thea'eame up ht h,ix boat and bar.'
