Late in the afternoon the floe began to break up and I got back to my boat By night there were lanes of water In every direction ami a strong breexe set in from the south. I drifted to the north all that night aril all the nett day. but as the reennd night came down I was picked np by the Scotch whaler Jeannette, which had captured and waa rutting a whale, ind months later was landed at her home port.

Six days after . nailing the Princess was spoken by a craft bound to the east, but that waa the last heard of her for many loug years. When she did nut reach the Cape of Good llojie vessels were sent out to Bc&rrh for her, but though this search continued for a year and hun- - dreda of other cruft kept watch as uey voyaged to and fro, not the allghteet trace of the lost ship waa discovered. It was finally concluded that she had n struck a flouting wreck in . and gone down ao suddenly that no one could escape. Had she sprung a leak or caught fire a iart of her people must hare got away in the boats, and It could be figured on that at least one would have reached some island or been picked up. Aside from tbe money loss there were many prominent people among the passengers, and there was mouruiug in England and Australia for many a mouth after the ship was posted as lost. In June, lSipt, sixteen years after the loss of the Princess, 1 was one of the crew of the Boston whaler Talisman, which was trylug the cruising ground to the south of Cape Horn. We had had a fair run of luck, when we got a gale from the north which lasted for four days and uights without a break. Thia drove us away south among the Ice and ou a daseu different occasions the ship was within a hair's breath of being cast away or overwhelmed. After tbe fourth day of the gale there was a calm lasting thirty hours. During this Interval the Talisman lay between two monster Icebergs, with her boots down aud ready to tow her out of the way should they close in on her. Then we got a strong breeze from the east, which lasted for a day and went dear around the compass to the west Sometimes we lay moored to a berg for several hours; again we were pounding among the great cakes of Ice, which threatened every moment to crush in her sides. We had Ixten driving to the southeast for three days, when the brecse fell and left ns on a heaving sea. with a monster Iceberg about two miles away to the south. The ship had thus far sustained little daman, hut the crew were exhausted and given an all day's rest, and no accident occurred until late In the afternoon. This mass of Ice had .a front a mile long on our side, with an average height of SOU feet What its width was we could not say. Over it was floating a quantity of smoke. The moke did not rise from Its crest, but from the far side. No one doubted that It came from a fire lighted by shipwrecked sailors, who had caught sight of the Talisman and were maka signal. ing The tlfiid mate and three men waa ordered off In one of the whaleboats to Investigate and 1 was one of tbe three selected. We took with us a breaker of fresh water, a bottle of Tu id, bread, meat, blankets, a boat compass and a lantern, and darkness fell M we pulled away from the ship. We pulled to pass the western face of the berg and found it fo be about half a mile loug. As we reached its southern limit and turned to the east Wf caught sight of a small tire on a lodge about a hundred feet above the tester. Aa soon aa we got up to It the mate hailed and waa promptly answered that there were two men on the ledge, one of whom had a broken leg. Thereupon I waa ordared to remain by the boat aud hold on, while the mate and the two men landed on the berg and began making their way up, to the ledge. The evening waa perfectly quiet and there waa no surf on the south side of the berg, but tbe tragedy that followed waa brought about from causes far down In the depths of the sea. The men had not yet reached the ledge when the great berg suddenly canted to the north, and to prevent the boat being lifted out of the water I hud to let go of the painter, which had a tarn around a lump of ice. As I did so 1 waa shot away to a distance of 200 feet and flung down on the thwarts. I had Just got an oar in my hands when the berg came back at me and there was such a cracking, crashing and groaning that I waa frightened almost to death. Hundreds of pieces of Ice fell Into the sea around me and I heard cries of terror from the men who bad landed. In my fright I may hare pulled the boat some distance away or the send of the wavos may have carried her beyond danger. Be that aa It may, the berg split fair In half with a report like that of a docen cannons fired at once, and each half turned bottom sidfl up. This movement kicked up a tremendous sea for a few minutes, and anything but a whaleboat wouldI have must been swamped out of hand. have been driven a mile or more to the south by the waves. The mate had taken the bearings of the ship by compass when we turned the corner of the berg, snd I knew that she would also run a lantern aloft sa a guide, but when the sea quieted down I looked for her in vain.
