I ergagad my raturtl peseaga on tbe French '

anohored out in the channel. Wo had a great
time in getting onv Instead ot running- the
email boat alongside, she halted, ten rod. off,' a .io1
we were conveyed iq a' yaw, ladie and all.
when St waa quite dark and rough, to tbe ship. -
- It took tis two boura to do what an American
captain would have done In fifteen minute. "
About 10 o'clock at night' we at'arted. - The,
issouri is a splendid ship, of eoormouedimrn-;
arona, tnd when ate haeon her full weight or
canvass, a beauty.1". There were twp per(lny
on board, belonging to the ship, who could spe.ak,
English, viz: tha Doctor and tha third officer.
For the firat five day. wa had a most favorab'e
wind, but, strange to say, we did not have a.(
rag of canvass apread the whole time, The
third officer aaid tha wind would help only 'trr
Jeeffe: betL The panengera all seemed to IcpI
ontraged with tha mierable manspement of
the ship in that respect. The officer and
crew would make a great ado, but never accorn-,
plih anything. The French - dWt seem lo
have any 'Kinpfion' (I don't know who mado
the word) no ability to do thine to advantage
An American or an F.nglib aailor will take ad
vantage of every littla flaw of wind; he i. Con
stantly looking out and watching for the breeze,,
and, ere it comesj he ha up hi aail so aa to
have ita full benefit; but a Frenchman must
sea it blow a day or two before he ia sure ilj ia
worth hia while to take the trouble of hoisting
bis sail.' With the most favorable wind, we
made only from .even to eight miles an hour.
I had been abusing tbe English and lauding tha
French, all along, but now I begin to whistle
out of the other aid of my mouth. The ailor
were astonishingly awkward. ' " '
