The deposits ship filed j county i Lebi. It my appear a frivolous remark but i never embarked on a voyage with such misgivings As i Felt when the Central America steamed from Aspinwall. I Hopo i am not unduly superstitious but thrice in my life and three Only have i been visited with a terrible Nightmare a hideous monster resembling pictures i have seen of winged devils squatting in my Chest and throttling Quot to with its Bony fingers till i woke with a real rattle in my Throat and a Clammy perspiration bursting from my forehead. Three i say this horrid Nightmare visited to. Tho first time i got up absolutely unnerved and found the House on fire and my Young brother beyond the reach of reset a. Again years afterwards the terrible spectre re appeared i woke sat tip All night in agony of dread finding All Safe when Daylight came in Fane cd that my Fedra were baseless till the Post arrived bringing me tidings of Tho death of one for whom i would willingly have surrendered Iny own life i was visited by the same dream the night before we sailed from Aspinwall. I would have staid behind had Iliad the least reasonable pretext. But there were some in the so Atlantic states who were anxiously expecting to i could not disappoint them especially for my dreams Sake i sailed Vith gloomy forebodings which were at times almost overwhelming. You have read in the published accounts the narrative of our voyage from Aspinwall to Ila Vanna and from thence to sea again. At Havanna i. Was sorely tempted to wait for the next Steamer. I did not like the Central America j i distrusted her when she bore the name of George late Ami the change of name did not tend to increase my Confidence in her sea worthiness. But after All i had not the courage to be swayed by my fears. On to morning of thursday the 10th when i went on deck the Gale was High and tic ship was Labouring heavily. I did not at that time realize the danger that was approaching i was so Cool and confident that i derived amusement fro i watching the nervous fears if Somo of the Passyn Gers. There was a Young boy among the latter Whoso dread of drowning was visible in Bis Blanc lid lace every wave that approached made inn. Quiver and tremble i could notice his Teeth dinner is the Steamer Rose Over Iho huge seas when him he shuddered and crossed Lam self lie was a devout ii theolic the son of i 0 q j 1 parents. I v Ike t to deck during most of Tho Day arid toward evening accepted an invitation to play with sonic California friends. The Gale the whistling of the wind the ship the rumours of a regular september storm which were a Arcady afloat Quiong the passengers heightened Trio excitement of our play w e began with $2.50 stakes we soon made them twenties. An open Bosket of Champagne stood beside us Ono or two of the party Sang hilarious songs Tho vote passed to play a till the wind wont i won several Hundred dollars perhaps thousands a i hardly know. About three or four a. In. On irid in. I asked permission to lie Down for an hour promising to resume my place afterwards my friends consented reluctantly. I had hardly stretched myself on a berth and closed my eyes when i Felt the darkness gathering itself into a form i Felt a growing weight on my Chest i Felt on increasing lightness about my Throat i knew what it meant it was Friy dream returning. I sprang out of bed and rushed on Dock. It was pitch dark and the North wind blew so that 1 could n of keep my footing without Bolding on. Tho Steamer was working slowly. Iho Sihter of the watch and the Crew looked very anxious and wore unusually Alert. A l rom that to Echt a Foreknew stir Fate / i went Bolow and do Lanng that i would ploy no Moro. I Drew from my Belt my winnings and Laid them on the Tahlo. A gentlemen a said i Quot will any of you Cut for these or shall i give Eliom to the orphan Asylum at san Francisco ? a a. M poor follow to is gone i fear had Boon losing and Dnn Kuig freely to accepted the Challenge. I but ii ten but held it in any hand so that he could not see it to Cut a seven. _ a los said i to him. Pushing him Tho Money a i have a six. Throwing the cards m cheap i walked out of the state room and proceeded to Mako my arrangements for Tho catastrophe. They Scro few and simple. I had a Largo amount in Gold with me and so Ornt drafts the product of years of arduous and Perso Vorng labor in the hardest of Fields a California. The former i rolled into a bundle and threw into a Comer of the state room. I could not help laughing bitterly at Here were several no matter Bow Many thousand dollars in Gold which had Cost me years of hard work to earn. A of cry hours before those of who know me will not need told that would not have shrunk from spilling Wood to Defond in a Tat ont looks revolvers and extra prud Onoe had ail Boon called into play to transport thus far safely and now i kicked it into the comp of Tho state room with As Little ceremony of if it had been n dirty shirt walked out and loft the door open. Before Tho Day was Over i a eased to think myself singular. Of Friday night a Man might Hove had a Fortune for the gathering several poor Fellows went to Tho Bottom with Rolls of stolen Gold round their Waist. 1 it was about mid Day Oft Friday As Noar of i con recollect that Tho unmanageable and to pumps wore rigged bails of various kinds were set to try to keep her head to Tho storm but without Success. Then Tho forc Yard with an Anchor fast to it,.was put overboard to As drag but it Hud no effect beyond impeding the working of Tho Forward pump we Lay fairly a to it go of Trio sea which Wasl Iod Over us and ,.,to us. Ilu Dir the direction of Captain Jim. Ndon g,.ns3 no in were formed to work Tho pumps. I joined one of them and wrought i Hojo i n by zealously and faithfully. As Long asm s ring ii lasted. Some on Board said that Thoj were it of Uinci and it Lirow out no water Otic a Jeand among the so Tho ships officers a wait inc aus to Many assurances Flint to Terc gaining on Quot the i am Quot not a twi i or and can not undertake to decide among these conflicting opinions. I never had much belief myself in the theory of a the leak a and i was prepared to believe that the pumps throw out no Wator. We were in the trough of the sea and could not keep our head to Windward. What More need i say ? i had not slept on thursday night needed no sleep on Trio following one. Went Down below and talked to Tho ladies about the Prospect of our being saved striving to encourage them. The storm raged Tiore furiously than Ever and the Steamer careened Over on her beam ends. To poor creatures Lay huddled together in heaps a few silent and thoughtful but the most of them nervous and restless. Wen t to m s room and found him asleep with the Money he had won from me under his Pillow. Sat Down on a Chest and began to recall Tho stories of shipwrecks i had read in Days gone by. Captain blights was the Ono i remembered Best. While i was sitting there the Steamer gave a sudden lurch and threw Somo one a Pon me. It was to Spanish to was crying. I suppose to was not a Manly Hoy hut his feeling was quite human. He was very much afraid of Heing drowned and he like myself foresaw our Fate i tried to cheer him up. He took a Little Cross from his. Neck and showed it to me saying that his sister had Given it to him when he left Home and begging me to let her know if lie were drowned and i escaped that ail his thoughts at that terrible moment Wen about her a on saturday morning those who unlike myself had derided the storm began to look m accosted to with assumed bravado and asked if i would go finish the game. To Providence will do that for us said i mournfully for my spirit wa3"�otie. I believe i sorrow to say it that my and some of his friends went below to a Day and that they went into the presence of their maker with cards in their. Hands. Suffer me to pause a single instant in this gloomy narrative to a just tribute of admiration to Tho Noble Fellows who suffered the women and children to to taken off to the Brig. By member that we were five Hundred All of us armed that the Captain and Crew could not have kept is Back for five minutes if we had chosen to seize the boats. Tic there were Many Mong us who considered Tho Steamer safer than the boats. But the majority of the californians knew that the former was sinking. None to whom i spoke entertained any delusive Hopes on the Point. Deseae from passing vessels was the Only resource to which nine tenths of the passengers looked. Yet with one or two trivial exceptions not a Man interfered with the embarkation of the women and children. Consid ering Tho character and antecedents of the bulk of the passengers this conduct appears to me to to unequalled in history it was dark when our last hour Emo. Tho wind had fallen hut the sea was running in High massive Waves. Heavy Clouds hid Tho sky with occasional flashes of lightning and no Wand then As the Clouds shifted a glimpse of a Star. There was a Gem it silence on Board interrupted now and then by boisterous shouts from revellers a Clown Waves had washed Over us before. I did not realize the difference Between this one and its predecessors till i Fel t my feet lose their hold and saw All dark above. I knew that i was going Down a Down Down. I tried to resist the downward suction but it was impossible. Down slowly very slowly Down i went till i was in Tho Depths of the deep and the pressure of the water on my ends and nose was excruciatingly painful. T think i fainted in consequence if i did the sensation of rapid motion through Lac water revived me i was rising to the surface. 1 never realized the Power of water before. My utmost strength could not in the least moderate or alter my motion. Of it was heart rending to hear that shriek Whit i Rose from the belly of Tho Waves As five Hundred men Rose from the Depths and found themselves floating on the surface of the Ocean in the night Miles and1 Miles Distant from icy Rose thick As a. Shoal of Fisli. Striking each other and being struck by the fragments of the wreck which had been submerged with the ship. What death Frappiea for pieces of Tho wreck a one of the last rights i saw was the gleam of a knife As a Burly fellow Cut the hands of a follow passenger from a spar in order to keep it for himself. I needed All my strength myself to protect myself Fryni the Dewilly grasp of drowning men. A a y Quot a after a Timo a piece of the wreck floated toward to. A Man was clinging to it. I called to him and asked whether it would support two no an so or. I called again. Still no answer. I swam to him and seized him by the Arm. He was dead but his hands still Clung to the Timber. I had no hesitation in taking a place on the fragment which indeed would have supported several looking about me to find some Ono to share it with i descried a head in the darkness a Nodi hailed. It approached near enough for me Fco grasp it. I pulled the swimmer up. Aud discovered that it was the Spanish boy poor fellow though it was warm and there was no shivered from head to foot. I knew at a glance that it was a i bade him hold on firmly lest a wave should sweep him off but i had hardly said Tho words when i saw him press ins Little Cross to his lips a huge sea swept Over us he was gone and i saw him no More. Iio was the last of my follow passengers whom i beheld that night. A Tho cruel sen Moque separated us and i was alone. Car bad gone from me escape seemed utterly out of the question. I now observed proper precautions Moro with a View of carrying out conscientiously1 a curious Experiment than from any belief that be saved several times Tho thought of precipitating my end by plunging into the sea occurred to me j i do not know Why i repelled it. Hours passed. Psychological students will understand to when i say that i was busily engaged in composing mentally a business letter to accompany account sales polishing and rounding the sentences altering a word Here adding a phrase there aia even inserting with Mbel Aifoi. A f a be. Care Oach comma and period when a cry Liko Thunder of ahoy there a a Woko my up and i found myself close under Tho Quarter of a ship. How i got on Board i hardly know. That i was saved that i Lay Down on Board Tho Deok of our pres Cravor and cried like a child for an hour or More a that i was most sonorous by and humanely treated and that a lifetime of Devotion would to but an adequate return for the obligation i incurred. I am Here to testify. From the n. Y dimes. Oct. 0. The Central America three men rescued after being a me Days adrift 07�#ocean they arrive in Aeto York a a thrilling a narrative of famine and suffering. The City was startled yesterday by the apparition of three men rescued from the Steamer Central America. They came looking almost like skeletons gaunt sick exhausted. They Drifting m one of the steamers life boats. Some d78 Miles Northeast of the spot where the Central America went Down and nine Days after that sad affair their no a Mary picked them up on her Voy age from Cardenas Cuba to Cork Ireland. Tho Mary carried them Gustv Rudd seven Days when she met the a Remaud bark Laura coming from Breuhan toward new York arid transferred them to her. The Laura arrived yesterday morning with the three men. Their names Are. Tice 2d Engineer of the Central America. Alexander Grant fire . W. Dawson co o red passenger. Or. Tiee staid by the Steamer the moment she Sank with a Plank that he had before provided he plunged into the sea. To was drawn dowry in the whirl but in coming to the surf coi again brought his Plank with him. To this atone Quot he Clung for three Days seeing to sail nor any of his late shipmates on the fourth morning he drifted past an empty boat for which deserting his Plank he swam and after a tedious pull got into if. On the fifth Day he drifted close past Tho Steamer s Hurricane Dick simply an Inch Board platform covered with oiled Canvy so or. Grant one of the Steamer s firemen who was on this Hurricane deck jumped off swam to Tice s boat and the two rowed her up for happily the oars had not been lost out to the Hurricane deck and took off Dawson the Only tenant it then had. The three then drifted four nights and three. A lays longer North and eastward up to the very Eastern Edge of the Gulf Stream of usual track of ail vessel. Tick had nothing to eat nor to drink from the Day the Steamer Sank until on the fifth a Lay when he struck a dog fish with the Blade of his oar and killed it. This wretched provender they eat ravenously of raw of course and then till the ninth Day they bad no More to eat. On the eight Nighth there was a heavy rain. Of the water that fell they drink freely and would have killed themselves with it Grant said but that they had been Able to save Only a Little of it and the Supply soon failed. is True that the two on the Hurricane deck had cat we know not if they had it Muat have been that they fed on human flesh. But this Grant stoutly denies while Dawson stubbornly refused to say a a yes or a no Quot when his Friend As delicately As a Bluff old Sailor could asked him Tho question. The two who were saved on the Hurricane deck suffered loss during the first four Days than the Engineer. Grant says that when he found himself overboard still clinging to Tho piece of wreck that he held by when it ported from the Steamer there we re nine others on it Steamer s passengers. They saw no sail nor could Tell that any survived beside themselves. On Trio second Day Dawson the coloured Man drifted to them on a Plank. He attempted to get of the Hurri Eane deck but they remonstrated As the weight of those already on it Sank it so Low that Tho Waves washed Elean Over it at every wave. He would not part company with them How Cvar but oiling fast to a Side waiting until As. One after another of them dying fell off it lifted to the surface and Grant was glad to have Bis company. As we have already said or. Tico picked them up on the fifth Day. A though these three men arc City and we have conversed with them Al it is Little that1 can be got Ulof either of them or that they have yet told anybody. So Long As they were on Board the Brig Mary experiencing the kind attentions of capt. Spoorer they were so utterly prostrated As to be unable to communicate much of their horrible nine Days experience even if in their wretched Monotony it were not like one Long on Board the Laura Grant had recuperated a Wougk to Tell his Story if be had Felt disposed hut to Snoke Only English which of the 400 Odd Ger 1 Man passengers and Crew of the Laura Only the the mute and Ono passenger spoke English. On j to licit arrival Here.1 their Best Frt add and their j physicians unite in advising them to opon their i Mouths Only to eat. The statements that to us unix Are Tho result of their occasion conversation since they reached port. Tice is exceedingly weak and debilitated lie fainted several times i. A a a a a i a a a. A i yesterday., a Tho bark Laura Cnoc up from Quaranto and anchored off Castlo Garden at . Tho three rescued lauded and passed a Short tune at Castle Garden receiving the. Greeting of such friends As had card of their arrival. They were almost suffocated by Tho crowd which pressed around them and it was difficult to answer one half the them. The coloured Man. Dawson evidently impatient of the distinguished attention shown hum soon found an opening through the crowd and limped away. Or. Tice and were driven m a Carriage to no. 17a West Street where another larger j crowd was assembled in expectation of their arrival. Thev Wenc up stairs to Tho office whore the officers of Tho company Mot them. Or. Tico and or. Grant Are much reduced m flesh their feet arc tender and swollen and their lips face and hands Soro where the skin has been pooled off by the action of Trio Salt water washing Over them for , and their exposure scorching Sun. They have the appearance of men just recovering from protracted and Severo illness their lips Aie Blacl a their chocks sunken both walk with difficulty. Both say that they could not have continued alive Many hours longer a Evhen fallen in with by the Hittle Brig Mary for Greenock they could Sec by novo a hand or speak their Flueh was wasted and their Skeleton forms were frightful to each other.
