I saw an article in the Mercantile Jour
, nal, a few days since, headed 4 NavigatorS,'
which seemed to convey the idea that Arne
rica'n•sblips were always ably navigated.—
,general rule, I am willing to admit
that this is the case—ad - Man is'suppesed

ambitiOus yoUng man, who looks for pro

o igation. Nevertheless, some instances have
come to. my knowledge, syhich seem to
show, that all our vessels, when.leaving
port for a voyage, do not always hiVe good
iVigators on board. I will relate
wo cases in point.. • -
It is now-a number of years
. since an att
stance of unpardonable ignorance, or ne !
- greet,. on the part of an Arneriean naviga
tor, occierred'mr-board a fishing schooner
belonging Tereliiiie 'port: in Massachusetts .
,If I 'do not mistake, the schooner
belonged to Marblehead,—it may, howev-.
er, have been Beverly. am pretty cer
lain that- she belonged to one of these
ports. The, schooner was -ready for -her
cruise to the Grand Bank of Newfound
land, or a cargo.of fish, when the skipper,
in intelligent and hardy old fisherman, es

of men, was taken sick 7 -and was coin- .
pelled reluctantly to relinquish the voyage.
It now became necessary to procure a
shipper-.and .as it was a busy season, it
was not an- easy Mutter - to pedeure the right
kind of:a man. After a white; however, it
.bras concluded that nothhig 'better could be
than to appoint old Jor.ai l - lardhead
skipper for this trip. Jonas, or Uncle,,To

of his life — but for the' last few years had
been 'engaged occasionally in . the fishing

endure. more hardships, or haul up the;eod

"I've got you nt last"--4mt still he could
not e sne any vessels fishing, or obtain any

again consulted his bottll.l. On the follow

But much to tke mortificatian of the

that there might,b,e -- soine mistake in die

approaching from the eastward, he battled
his wind, hoisted his colors, atfd prepared
to speak her. She. proved to,lie a packet
ship, bound from Liverpool, to New York.
The skipper' tailed, and enquired of the
captain of the Ship if he had seen'any fish
ing vessels on his passage. "^Aye, aye,"
was . the reply, ." I saw a number in the
Irish Channel." .
"Irish Channel]," echoed the skipper,
with a .hoitl of . astonishment. " Why,
where 'are - weony' good ? 'Po tell
me *tv here we ate ?" •.
" We are,, about thirty-five miles south- 1
